Remember back in 2008 when the Army announced they are deploying 20,000 Army troops to active duty IN AMERICA?
They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control...
The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,”
Most here thought being alarmed about the above was a bit tin foil hatty. Well, now those non-lethal weapons are being deployed around the country and the world.
What next? Detention Camps?
Of course not. Oh, wait we do have detention centers for illegal immigrants. But they would never do this to "real Americans", right?
For years Chiefs of Police and others have received "terrorist training" in Israel, so that's not new news either.
Just some links and facts below. No need for alarm. All is well. This is America.
And this is our history (Go to page 5 to read the synopsis):
2003, November 21 - General Tommy Franks Doubts Constitution Will Survive WMD Attack
Members of the board, many of whom are paid upward of $200,000 a year for their service, declined to comment or did not return calls. A Bank of America spokesman declined to comment.
Well, that's one way of thanking a General for his service.
There you go. Wall Street has its own mercenary armies, gun, and bullet manufacturers.
2005 Toronto Police ‘Volatility’ mars forum probing police chief’s Israel visit
DSAC, a strategic partnership between the FBI and the U.S. private sector, was established to promote the timely and effective exchange of information.
July 28, 2011 US, Aussie police to visit Israel counter-terror program
Infragard - InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
2008, October Article Use of military in quelling domestic unrest a scary sign
Officially formed to respond to major disasters, like a nuclear or biological attack, this combat brigade falls under the U.S. Northern Command, a military structure formed on Oct, 1, 2002, to "provide command and control of Department of Defense homeland defense efforts." Military participation in domestic operations was originally outlawed with the Posse Comitatus Act in 1878.
The John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007, however, included a section that allowed the President to deploy the armed forces to "restore public order" or to suppress "any insurrection." While a later bill repealed this, President Bush attached a signing statement that he did not feel bound by the repeal.
In October, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department turned parts of the campus of the University of California in Berkeley into an urban battlefield. The occasion was Urban Shield 2011, an annual SWAT team exposition organized to promote “mutual response,” collaboration and competition between heavily militarized police strike forces representing law enforcement departments across the United States and foreign nations.
And it looks like Congress is about to make this bill even more onerous.
MYSELF and OTHERS have been ringing this warning bell for a long time. Listen to the words of this speech. We are slipping back to our very dark past.
WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO TAKE TO GET 2% OF AMERICANS TO HIT THE STREETS?
Heck, 8%+ are unemployed with time on their hands.
I hope others will connect some of the dots.
It looks like, to me, that the private equity, big banks, and key retired CIA and military personnel are on the same team, and its not ours.
And the Police Chiefs have been trained by and adopted Israeli tactics. I would be surprised if the military and Blackwater hadn't also helped to train our police.
The Militarized Police State. I Can Happen Here!
