02OCT2014: Military Exercises part of developments INSIDE America! Unanswered Question is Why?


maydayoct02-1

(Inquiring Minds) – Are American events too entrenched to stop or influence? Can America any longer claim in all honesty, to be the “Leader of the Free World”? In Britain we should be made aware. What happens there is likely to happen here.

One thing is for sure, these unprecedented domestic deployments and military exercises must be aimed at a DOMESTIC audience and perceived threat by those who order them. They are unquestionably a form of army mobilisation, when it appears to the civilian population, there is no immediate threat or reason to justify it. They are are part of much wider developments that are profoundly worrying.

Although America has been one of the most aggressive states in the world, it has been careful to ensure the military keep a low profile domestically, and project itself as benign and patriotic protector of the much vaunted American “freedom” and way of life. This appears to be changing, though no-one has explained why it is necessary, or where the impulse is coming from.

Is it coming from the President in the White House, or is it emanating in spite of it, from the centres of power such as the Pentagon, FBI, Homeland Security or even CIA? It is doubtful that State or Municipal Government has requested it, as it runs counter to every fibre of American history and constitution, yet invariably, as was seen at Boston, they appear to accept it without demure, a point made eloquently by the late Gore Vidal at the start of the third video above.

The deployment of troops within the country; exercises that also involve the police in an essentially military role; the whole tenure of police equipment, uniform and posture; all have ominous overtones of marshal law, suspension of legal protections and fascist dictatorship.

Could it be possible that the United States Government is actively intending to go further down this road to disaster for it and the world? If so what can be the underlying rationale or purpose? What do they know that we don’t? What could cause unrest on such a scale as to require the wholesale deployment of troops within the country?

One is forced to conclude, nothing short of a cataclysmic event, such as widespread domestic terrorism, rioting and disorder, international warfare or economic collapse could give due cause.

Are any or all of these being actively planned for? If not, what could possibly justify it? Perhaps, on the basis of “what America does today, we are likely to do tomorrow”, we should be told.

These events cannot be viewed in isolation, and they take on an even more sinister hue when viewed in the context of other developments.

It is impossible to get away from the events of 9/11 and those that followed. Increasingly Americans are waking up to the impossibility of the official explanation, which when linked to the Government’s failure to move away from it, must mean culpability and involvement.

Cameron’s reference to the subject in his recent UN speech, calling not for proper enquiry but criminal sanctions against those that do, is as unbelievable as it is worrying. Are the military exercises an extension of that criminal conspiracy? Is America getting ready to control the consequences of an outraged public?

The Congress and people supinely acceded to the Patriot Act following the events of 9/11, no one posing the simple question how it was possible such a complicated statute was immediately available to place before the legislature, so willing to abandon hard won and fundamental rights and freedoms. Clearly it had been drafted months, if not years, before the events of 9/11 which were used as the excuse to pass it.

On the basis of an outrageous lie, the American government was also prepared to kidnap; imprison without trial; torture; assassinate foreign nationals and US nationals without trial; and pursue aggressive war contrary to international law. With this sort of record, the question as to whether America is capable of further infringements of civilized behaviour, becomes somewhat unnecessary.

As I have said many times, if the American Government, or a cabal within it, was capable of an outrage like 9/11, to pursue equally nefarious actions elsewhere, it is capable of anything. The current military manoeuvres may be the latest manifestation of the same evil.

Only Americans are responsible for their country and the actions of its government at home and abroad. We in Europe are correspondingly responsible for the way in which we handle things here, and those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Nor should we be complacent, believing it couldn’t happen here. We cannot be blind to the fact that virtually everything America has done we have aped and been supportive of, so the way America behaves can be taken as a warning that there may be those in our own government that want to follow suit.

This is not an hypothetical point of view. It can be seen and heard in the words of the Prime Minister already referred to, and in the waspish “crime-busting” smile of the current Home Secretary, arguing for yet more government powers to detain and control, whilst whittling away existing freedoms and protections. Blair succeeded in taking us to war. Fortunately he was frustrated in respect of some of his domestic policies but as we have seen with Syria, government, or dubious elements within it, does not give up and go away. When at first they don’t succeed, they try (and try) again and if the hat doesn’t fit they make a new one.

We can also see it very visibly and ominously in parallel moves to arm, militarise and centralise the police. Scotland has helpfully gone even further down this road by arming ALL policemen and creating just one force. So much for devolution encouraging pacifism and decentralisation when quite the opposite is the case.

The more criminal law enforcement is centralised, the more prone it becomes to political influence and corruption, as has been demonstrated in Scotland with the Holly Grieg case.

So it is for everyone who values an open and free society, in which dark forces are restrained and the innocent are allowed to go about their law abiding business unmolested by government, to be alert to all and every attempt, on whatever pretext, to change for the worse the rules of a civilized society, and to make it clear it will not be tolerated.

Hopefully the American population will do the same and rise to the challenge, demanding that the military exercises so evident across the nation and the profound threat they entail, be stopped in their tracks. The shocking scene in the third video, of an American man being arrested by a policeman, for merely putting forward a point of view at a public meeting, should be enough to persuade one and all what is at stake.

02OCT2014 – South Ga. Air Force base warns residents of featured bombing training


HEADS UP GA!

(abc3340) – FORT BENNING, Ga. (AP) – Air Force officials say training exercises at Fort Benning are expected to feature practice bombings executed by low-flying aircraft.

Fort Benning spokesman Chris Warner said in a release that the exercises run Wednesday through Friday and are also scheduled for Oct. 20-25.

Warner says the Air Force will be using A-10 aircraft to make bombing runs in the northeast area of Fort Benning and residents should prepare for noise, flare signals over the area and rattling from the use of 500-pound training bombs.

The training sessions this week are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Training runs between Oct. 20 and 25 are scheduled for 4 to 10 p.m.

Warner says officials are trying to limit late night noise, but weather and operational conditions can sometimes delay training.

13 YEARS POST 9/11: THE PATRIOT ACT AND LESSONS LEARNED


 

911lies1

By Stephanie Sledge | 11Sept2014

13 years have come to pass since the 9/11/01 attacks on the World Trade Center towers. Americans have been left with an ‘official report’ and unanswered questions. Post 9/11legislation has had enormous consequences for this country.

One of the biggest post 9/11 deceptions awaiting Americans following the tragedy of the attacks on the World Trade Centers was the PATRIOT ACT (an act of Congress) signed into law in 2001 by President George W. Bush. The act expands and gave to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other federal agencies the power to search business and homes and to obtain any records without any knowledge or consent. Recently, the act has come under fire when Edward Snowden, former CIA employee and NSA contractor, exposed secret documents of how the NSA collects telephone records of virtually all Americans under the power of the Patriot Act.

20AUG2014: NO Warning – ARMY TO CONTINUE ‘BLACK HELICOPTER’ TRAINING OVER TWIN CITIES DESPITE ANGER


Unannounced drills blasted as “outrageous” by city councilor

(Paul Joseph Watson) – The U.S. Army is set to continue training exercises involving low flying “black helicopters” over Minneapolis and St. Paul tonight despite residents and local officials expressing outrage at the danger posed by the unannounced drills.

With the agreement of local police departments, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment out of Fort Campbell Kentucky has been conducting the exercises, which involve low flying Night Stalker black hawk helicopters buzzing over rooftops and in between buildings, since Monday and will continue with the drills through until Thursday evening.

Similar drills were conducted over the twin cities in 2012, before which police gave residents three days notice. This time the exercises were completely unannounced, prompting panicked locals to flood 911 and non-emergency lines.

With both law enforcement and the Army refusing to divulge precisely what the exercise is supposed to accomplish, residents and city councilors complained bitterly at taxpayer money being wasted on the exercise.

“I think it’s outrageous,” said St. Paul City Council member Chris Tolbert. “We’re going to have Black Hawks flying at a low level over a densely populated urban area without any notice at all? I had helicopters shaking my house at 11:57 last night. They were right over the trees.”

His sentiments were echoed by city council member Dave Thune, who slammed the drills as “incredibly unsafe.”

“When you’ve got Blackhawk helicopters flying between buildings full of people in the middle of the night, it’s just not safe … It’s absolutely wrong for us as a civilian police department to engage in military exercises. It shouldn’t happen here,” said Thune.

Pioneer Press reporter Joe Soucheray, who described how the low flying choppers literally shook his house, criticized authorities for failing to provide advance warning or information about the training program.

“We are supposed to be good and quiet little citizens who don’t ask too many questions,” wrote Soucheray. “Go back into your basements, folks. We’re just doing a little buzzing over your roof, maybe dropping a SEAL down a rope or whatever we feel like doing. You all just move along.”

Soucheray took issue with residents being treated like “guinea pigs,” writing, “These exercises have to be incredibly dangerous. Large, fast, essentially blacked-out helicopters are flying over a packed urban center, between downtown St. Paul buildings where people live.”

Minneapolis resident Daniel Feidt told CBS Minnesota that the training was “a waste of taxpayer money,” remarking, “It’s inappropriate for Special Forces to be operating in American cities.”

Tonya Tennessen, spokeswoman for St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, justified the exercises by citing 9/11, commenting, “In a post-9/11 world, this is how homeland security happens. … These exercises are taking place in cities all over the country.”

Maj. Allen Hill denied eyewitness reports that military personnel were seen rappelling onto the top of the Federal Reserve building in downtown Minneapolis.

Back in May we reported on similar drills in Kentucky and Cincinnati which were described by eyewitnesses as resembling something out of a war zone.

In 2012, Miami residents were shocked to be awoken by a military exercise in the middle of the night which involved helicopters, fighter jets, along with simulated gunfire and grenades. Black Hawk helicopters also flew low over Los Angeles during a military drill the same year.

Back in March, we reported on Department of Defense exercises in Broward County during which low flying military helicopters landed on city buildings in Fort Lauderdale. According to a local reporter, the drills were centered around, “scaring the crap out of people”.

As we have previously explained, many see the drills as a means of acclimatizing people to accept the prospect of martial law. Some in Minneapolis and St. Paul have suggested that police departments agreed to host the drills in return for military equipment from the Pentagon.

As we have seen in Ferguson, Missouri over the last 10 days, such gear is being used to target protesters, journalists and silence the First Amendment as America increasingly begins to resemble a banana republic.

18AUG2014: New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters


***MAYDAY***

(Dave Hodges) – The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS).

This document, just published this past Friday, August 15, 2014, promises to change the way the “authorities” deal with protesters, even peaceful ones. The consequences of ATP 39.33 could prove deadly for protesters. Further, the provisions of this Army manual could prove to be the end of the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.

 

Army-CivilDisturbances-2014

 

In section 1-2., the manual states that  “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots“. This section of the manual clearly states that protesting is a right protected by the Constitution. However, the authorities leave themselves an out to “legally” engage in lethal force toward protesters when the manual states that “peaceful protests can turn into full-scale riots” and field commanders have the right to make that determination. Subsequently, all protests, peaceful or not, need to be managed by the potential for violence. In other words, all protests are to be considered to be violent and handled accordingly. This certainly explains the violent manhandling of the media by the DHS controlled and militarized police in Ferguson, MO.

Posse Comitatus Is Violated

On the surface, the Posse Comitatus Act (18 USC 1385) act should prevent the Army from deploying the troops in the midst of a protest that is not on the scale of something like the 1992 LA Riots. However, the Army claims exemption from Posse Comitatus in the four following areas.

  • 10 USC 331. When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • 10 USC 332. When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • 10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens, due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • House Joint Resolution 1292. This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major political candidates from physical harm.

 

With regard to 10 USC 331, if the local authorities have lost control in the midst of a profound display of domestic violence (e.g. LA Riots), most Americans support the use of National Guard or the military.  However, in 10 USC 332, 333 and House Joint Resolution 1292 are ripe with exceptions which opens the door to federal authorities abusing the public for exercising their Constitutional right to protest.

In 10 USC 332, the phrase “unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized”  and this permits the federal government from being demonstrated against. An act of demonstration, or the most benign demonstrations of civil disobedience gives the government the authority to take “deadly action” against the public  because there are no clear distinctions on when the use of lethal and nonlethal force is appropriate (see the two charts displayed below).


murietta 2

 

In 10 USC 333, any disruption of federal law can be decisively dealt with by the federal government. The phrase “…conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized” is a telling passage of this Army document. If 10 USC 333 is applied to the letter of the written Army policy, the protesters who recently objected to illegal aliens being deposited in Murietta, California, could be subject to deadly force. Further, the protesters in Ferguson could be subject to the use of lethal force as well (Again, see the charts below).

The next time a community decides that it does not want to accept illegal immigrants, or protest the shooting of an unarmed 18 year old,  they could be met by the following:

 

swat team ferguson

 

 

No more protests.

 

The fourth exception claimed by the Army with regard to the Army’s right to violate Posse Comitatus, is presented to the American people under the veil of the need to protect politicians.

House Resolution 1292 claims any protest which makes a public official feel “threatened” would be illegal and subject to intervention by the U.S. Army. Hypothetically, if 100 protesters were to gather outside of Senator John McCain’s office in Phoenix, would that be enough to trigger a violent response by the Army? If McCain says he feels threatened, regardless if his claims are legitimate or not, it most certainly would justify the strongest response possible from the Army. Therefore, all a politician has to do is to say they feel threatened by any gathering to have the gathering dispersed and the protesters dealt with in any manner seen fit by the field commander. Make no mistake about it, this is the end of the First Amendment’s right peaceably assemble.

 Army Depictions On How Best to Kill An American Citizen Who Expresses Disagreement with the Government

 

Do you remember the uproar when DHS was caught distributing target practicing sheets of pregnant women to be used for DHS agents when they were engaged in target practicing?

 

dhs target 2

 

And of course, I am certain that you recall the use of an elderly person’s image to be used by DHS agents for the same purpose. The implication is clear; The American people are the new terrorists.

 

dhs target 1

Below, is the graphic depiction of the Army’s version of a terrorist and worse yet, there are instructions on how to best maim and kill an American citizen who is engaged in their Constitutional right to protest

 

How to best kill and maim an American.

 

The second chart is a sample guideline on when the application of lethal force is appropriate to be applied to protesters. Please note the ambiguity with regard to the application of lethal force. It is also noteworthy to point out that the following chart provides for the planned use of snipers to target the perceived leaders of a protest. These procedures remind one of the events in Kiev prior to the ouster of the Russian-friendly Prime Minister. It would appear that CIA agents were beta testing these procedures in Kiev prior to the coup.

 

 

army use of lethal force

Conclusion

ATP 39.33 is quite clear in its intent which is to eliminate the act of protesting from the American landscape. More disturbingly, the right to summarily execute peaceful protesters is contained in this Army manual due to the purposeful ambiguity of when it is appropriate to use deadly force against protesters.This Army manual is an example of hard core, in-your-face martial law befitting the most violent regimes in the history of the planet.

There is another message contained in ATP 39.33 and that is the clear anticipation that the American people are going to feel the need to be protesting in earnest in the foreseeable future. What exactly are the American people going to feel compelled to protest that remains unspecified in this manual? Could it be resistance to mandatory Ebola vaccinations? Could we be looking at food riots in the future? Will it be a currency collapse that puts Americans in the street? Will America rise up and say no to the plans for World War III and the coming conscription of both potential military personnel and a civilian labor slave force as described under Executive Order 13603?

Not only should this document be a frightening wake-up call for all Americans, it should also serve as a warning for what is to come.

14AUG2014: The Military Occupation Of Ferguson, Missouri Is Just A Preview Of What Is Coming To America


(The American Dream) – Let’s be honest – Ferguson, Missouri is under military occupation right now, and the entire world is watching in horror as militarized police fire tear gas and rubber bullets at unarmed protesters.  Yes, the rioting and looting in Ferguson needed to be stopped.  If order had not been restored, more stores and businesses would have been destroyed.  However, there is no excuse for the brutal tactics now being employed.  At one point, police snipers were even using laser scopes to target protesters that were obviously unarmed.  Sadly, this is just a preview of what is coming to America in the years ahead.  As the economy falls apart and people become even more angry and even more frustrated, there will be a lot more incidents of civil unrest like we have just witnessed in Ferguson.  And in response, the federal government and our overly militarized police will seek to crush those uprisings with overwhelming force.  How is it possible that our once very peaceful nation has fallen apart so dramatically?

What we just watched happen in Ferguson was truly bizarre.  If you didn’t know any better, you might have thought that you were looking at images from a really bad post-apocalyptic disaster movie.

The following is how the New Yorker described the scene…

Last night, as the images and stories from Ferguson, Missouri, joined the news churn, many who registered their thoughts via social media noted that what they were seeing—policemen with dogs and AR-15 assault rifles standing in a Stygian, blue-lit cloud of tear gas; crowds of protesters with their hands in the air, screaming “Hands up, don’t shoot”; members of the press being removed from the scene—did not look like America.

And I will certainly agree with that.

It did not look like America.  At least not the America that I grew up in.

In a WND article, one woman was quoted as saying that it looked “like something right off the streets of Iraq”…

Cheryl Chumley has been watching developments in Missouri, where Michael Brown was shot over the weekend, and just overnight two more people were shot, including one by police.

Armored vehicles on patrol, Kevlar-wearing, camouflage dressed officials carting high-powered rifles, tear gas wafting through the air – sounds like something right off the streets of Iraq. But it’s not. It’s actually the scene that’s playing out in Ferguson right now, with SWAT-type police taking to the residential streets for crowd control duties,” she said.

Was all of this really necessary?

The rioting and the looting had already ended.  Was there really a need to fire tear gas at unarmed people?

In the YouTube video posted below, you can see footage of some of the craziness that took place…

And in this next YouTube video, there is footage of one protester holding his head after being hit directly in the face with a rubber bullet by the police…

In this day and age, images like this spread like wildfire.  Thanks to social media, people all over the country and all over the planet will get a first-hand look at how brutal our militarized police have become.

And the more attention this gets, the more likely that it is that violence will spread to more cities.  Already, a major protest is being planned for Sunday directly in front of police headquarters in Los Angeles.  A man was shot and killed on Monday by the LAPD and people are upset about it.  They have seen what has been happening in Ferguson and now they want to take action.

But wherever civil unrest does erupt, our militarized police will certainly be there to quickly stamp it out.  As a recent Slate article detailed, the militarization of our police has reached unprecedented heights in recent years…

Since 2006, according to an analysis by the New York Times, police departments have acquired 435 armored vehicles, 533 planes, 93,763 machine guns, and 432 mine-resistant armored trucks. Overall, since Congress established its program to transfer military hardware, local and state police departments have received $4.3 billion worth of equipment. Accordingly, the value of military equipment used by these police agencies has increased from $1 million in 1990 to $324 million in 1995 (shortly after the program was established), to nearly $450 million in 2013.

And when police get all of this equipment, it is inevitable that they are going to use it.  One result of this has been the astounding increase in the number of SWAT team raids in America.  The following numbers come from my previous article entitled “10 Facts About The SWATification Of America That Everyone Should Know“…

#1 In 1980, there were approximately 3,000 SWAT raids in the United States.  Now, there are more than 80,000 SWAT raids per year in this country.

#2 79 percent of the time, SWAT teams are deployed to private homes.

#3 50 percent of the victims of SWAT raids are either black or Latino.

#4 In 65 percent of SWAT deployments, “a battering ram, boot, or some sort of explosive device” is used to gain forced entry to a home.

#5 62 percent of all SWAT raids involve a search for drugs.

#6 In at least 36 percent of all SWAT raids, “no contraband of any kind” is found by the police.

#7 In cases where it is suspected that there is a weapon in the home, police only find a weapon 35 percent of the time.

#8 More than 100 American families have their homes raided by SWAT teamsevery single day.

#9 Only 7 percent of all SWAT deployments are for “hostage, barricade or active-shooter scenarios”.

#10 Even small towns are getting SWAT teams now.  30 years ago, only 25.6 percent of communities with populations between 25,000 and 50,000 people had a SWAT team.  Now, that number has increased to 80 percent.

And of course African-American communities receive a greatly disproportionate amount of attention from our militarized police.  Just imagine how you would feel if every time you saw a police officer you cringed in fear because you might be about to get searched again.  The following is how author Michelle Alexander put it in her book “The New Jim Crow“…

Ultimately, these stop-and-frisk operations amount to much more than humiliating, demeaning rituals for young men of color, who must raise their arms and spread their legs, always careful not to make a sudden move or gesture that could provide an excuse for brutal — even lethal — force.

Like the days when black men were expected to step off the sidewalk and cast their eyes downward when a white woman passed, young black men know the drill when they see the police crossing the street toward them; it is a ritual of dominance and submission played out hundreds of thousands of times each year.

So what can we do about this?

How can we change the system?

How can we reverse this alarming militarization of our police?

Unfortunately, our system has become so corrupt that there is very little that we can do.  In fact, one newly released study discovered that average Americans have a “near-zero” statistical impact on public policy…

A startling new political science study concludes that corporate interests and mega wealthy individuals control U.S. policy to such a degree that “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

The startling study, titled “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens,” is slated to appear in an upcoming issue of Perspectives on Politics and was authored by Princeton University Professor Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Professor Benjamin Page. An early draft can be found here.

Noted American University Historian Allan J. Lichtman, who highlighted the piece in a Tuesday article published in The Hill, calls Gilens and Page’s research “shattering” and says their scholarship “should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government.”
