BREAKING: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GUN FREE ZONE


gunfreezone

(Jack Mullen) – Gun-free zones are a magnet for those who want to kill many people quickly. Even the most ardent gun control advocate would never put Gun-Free Zone signs on their home. Lets stop finally putting them elsewhere. – John Lott Jr.

Theorem: There are NO GUN FREE ZONES

“Gun Free Zones” are bounded regions where law abiding people are not allowed to be armed – formally being disarmed before entering.  Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces (GFZPS) are a violation of the Constitution for the United States, violate many State Constitutions, and, more importantly, violate Natural Law.

MARYLAND’S BIT PART IN HOMELAND SECURITY THEATRE


Check out Maryland’s ‘Terror Billboards’  –

(Jack Mullen) – Driving around the State of Maryland (State slogan: “The Free State”) one could get the impression he or she has passed into an alternative universe where the State had morphed into a dystopic, Orwellian-Jumbo-Tron surveillance state complete with big screen outdoor billboards advising ‘citizens’ to be ever vigil of possible terrorist activities and encouraging ‘citizens’ to report any ‘suspicious’ activities they might observe.

Orwell’s “1984” can be viewed as the Bible of Tyranny, Mind Control, and Scientific Enslavement, the entire book is a explanation of today’s manufactured false reality, culture and expression of a totalitarian State supported on fear; a mind crushing, thought controlling, humanity limiting, IQ damaging, containment cube, squashing the life and potential out of the ‘citizen’ while confining the soul to a prison of impossible self-actualization.

The State of Maryland and other states now under the control of nationalist hating, Constitution ignoring, One World Government promoting, agents of a foreign occupation force are participating in a giant psychological operation (psy-op) trying to give credibility to the phony terrorism narrative being pushed on the public mind by the Usurped Federal Government.

18May2015: Obama announces restrictions of military-style equipment to police


FOLLOWERS: This morning, the Obama administration has announced major restrictions on the distribution of military-style equipment to police in light of the Ferguson riots in Missouri. The public outcry has grown over the past couple of years to eliminate the local soviet-style gestapo growing like a plague on American soil. Unfortunately, mostly due to false scripts written to promote fear of the ‘terrorists’ hiding out in our local communities. However, as we have witnessed over the past few years, the police have and are being trained the ‘bad guys’ aka ‘terrorists’ have been aimed at the American Citizens.

The White House announced this morning, “Washington would no longer provide some military-style gear while putting stricter controls on other weapons and equipment distributed to law enforcement.” This is good news! However, it does not eliminate the unconstitutional training the police receive which lists various Americans as criminals and/or terrorists. See the Missouri MIAC report, as well as others.

A shoot-to-kill mindset has already been instilled through training programs designed to continue a ‘war-game’ type scenario within our communities. There are a number of implemented polices and procedures within local police departments designed to continue a growing police-state here in America. The outrage from Citizens have only put a minor dent in the fight to abolish this type of terrorist behavior inflicted upon the People from the police and sheriff’s departments.

Most police are hired directly from the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq and are given a false image of a super-soldier identity and are indoctrinated into beLIEving average Citizens are criminals. Most especially, those who operate a vehicle on the highways and local streets. Catch the bad guys… However, they are really just revenue collectors and don’t realize it. Some do, some do not. It is very hard to recognize officers as heroes anymore when the agenda is driven by treating the average Citizen like a criminal before a crime has even been committed.

The problem in this country is the Citizens have also fell victim to the indoctrination to call the police on every situation and have forgotten how to handle their own situations which arise in their daily lives. The insurance companies have embedded their control into the communities and have recruited the police departments into enforcing their financial control over the Citizens. For example, the war on drugs, the war on DUI’s, the war on texting while driving, the war on terrorism. All designed to keep the legal system, the city, and the third party contractors (prisons, probation offices, treatment centers, SATOP programs, etc) in business…. a sham, a scam, a sheep herding manufacturing line of continuous financial and legal control over the People. 911 has been hijacked and designed to control Americans and the People have fallen hard for it. Just ask most and you will receive a response similar to, “it’s for our safety…” beep…. “it’s for our safety…”

However, the announcement from the White House and spewed by the propaganda media FOX NEWS, targets racism and the killing of blacks as the reason for the restrictions. It seems racism is the target of recent divide and conquer of the nation. In reality, everyone has become a target.

Just because the recent announcement was made on restrictions on the distribution of military-style equipment to police does not mean we will see a change in the police-state in America. Consider the Jade Helm military style drills and other exercises designed to control Citizens. A true military style take-over, a hostile occupancy. Eliminating the revenue collector police from having the military style equipment and weapons does not eliminate the true military occupancy taking place…

Marines to raid buildings and shoot paintballs from modified M-15s in Downtown L.A. Friday, “Undisclosed Locations”


militarytraining

Starting Friday and extending through December 16, Marines from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit at Camp Pendleton will be training in Los Angeles “in preparation for a deployment” which includes flying as many as six military helicopters over the downtown area and conducting raids at multiple “undisclosed locations” that will be “off limits to the public for safety reasons,” CBS News is reporting.

But don’t worry, Capt. Brian Block told the Associated Press, “It’s not going to look like ‘Apocalypse Now’ by any stretch of the imagination.” Oh good. That wasn’t my immediate go-to mental image of Marines training in downtown L.A. streets right off the bat, but glad to know that isn’t part of the plan.

Dozens of Marines will raid buildings and shoot paintballs from modified M-15s as part of the exercise, but no residents live in the spots where the pseudo-combat will take place, according to Block.

The military worked closely with the Los Angeles Police Department and notified property owners so no one will be caught off guard, Block said.

Commander Blake Chow with the LAPD’s counter-terrorism unit told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO the exercise was not linked to any local or regional terrorism threat.

“There’s no terrorism threat out there that would be the reason that these exercises are being conducted, this is something that’s been kind of ongoing for a while,” said Chow. “This is one location amongst many that the Marines are gonna be kind of exposing their people to.” (source)

“Ongoing for a while“…?

“One location amongst many the Marines are…exposing their people to”…?

As if exposing our soldiers to military exercises in the streets of urban America like that is normal? Like that is something that is supposed to ever happen?

Like the people living in those areas should just get conditioned to the sight of armed military on the streets as a regular thing?

Well, it’s true many of our law enforcement members believe “America is a war zone.” Wasn’t America designated a part of the battlefield by the NDAA? Guess that’s why even some of America’s school districts are getting mine-resistant, ambush protected (MRAP) tanks straight off the battlefields in Afghanistan as part of the Pentagon’s military surplus program.

The training’s timing is impeccable and more than a little ironic, too, with protests (some turning violent) breaking out all across the country over our burgeoning police state, including throughout California from Berkeley to Oakland.

Just a couple days ago, a whole apartment building went up in flames all at once shutting down major freeways in L.A. and damaging several government buildings including the headquarters of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Dept. of Parks and Recreation, and the L.A. County Health Services building.

Investigators believe it was arson.

Guess if it happened a week later, people would be wondering if the fire was just another part of the drill…

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.

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.
