Why the Sudden Panic?

What comes across from the passage of Senate Bill 1867 is fear, palpable fear. What are they afraid of? Losing the US to home grown terrorists? And under what circumstance would this occur? Phrases like “indefinite detention” of American citizens cast suspicion on the claim that this is a bill intended to protect the US from another 911 type attack. The US has a working court system, and Gitmo under US military rule seems without serious challenge. Under what circumstance would the US be so overwhelmed by home grown terrorists that the US court system and federal agencies would not be able to deal with the issue?  There certainly is a reaction to some hidden knowledge here.

That the vote on this Senate Bill was 93-7 in favor of passage is another astonishing fact. This palpable fear crosses political boundaries! Given that the wording in the bill runs amuck of the Constitution – the right to bear arms, the right to a speedy trial, and the casual deployment of the US military of US soil – it would not withstand court challenges as it stands. What has happened to cause the US Senate to be so gripped by fear that it, as a body, runs amuck of the Constitution? Clearly it is not an economic depression or the national debt, both of which have been long running and caused no more than argument in the Senate about jobs bills and lifting the debt ceiling.

By Senate Bill 1867 the Senate is asking for Martial Law to be in essence imposed casually and quickly, bypassing the need for a National Emergency excuse for an Executive Order from the President. Via Senate Bill 1867 the US military can operate on as well as off US soil, arresting citizens, upon a vague interpretation of a terrorism threat. Martial Law heretofore required the President to declare a National Emergency, but now an essential Martial Law could be called if the President declares a group of citizens to be a threat. No need to explain the threat.

Suddenly, and without explanation or apology, the US is openly preparing for disaster. This did not occur after the Katrina disaster, so is clearly not a reaction to recent events. If a preparation for a New Madrid disaster, which is vaguely predicted by officials for sometime in the next century or beyond, then why the sudden sense of urgency? The public is not noticing these efforts, as they are kept out of the mainstream press. But for those tracking such revealing plans and actions, the meaning is clear. It appears that the US government, FEMA, expects the New Madrid disaster or some other major disaster to occur soon, and is saying nothing to its citizenry about it!

Just by googling “FEMA camps activated” there has been much results including a direct link to a PDF of such preparations going into: “KBR is establishing a National Quick Response Team for our current Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) work..” and “The Continental US will be broken up into five regions” and “Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a contingency project and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses. Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment. Supply lines needed must be short but not necessarily pre-positioned.” Further goes into details of these “camps” or survival centers etc with: “Catering Services, Temporary Fencing and Barricades, Hand Washing Stations, Laundry Services, Potable Water, Power Generation, Fuel Delivery / Supply & Electrical Distribution etc.”

Infowars.com reports it has received a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR that provides details on a push to outfit FEMA and U.S. Army camps around the United States. Entitled “Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements,” the document describes services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors. The document was passed on to us by a state government employee who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

Services up for bid include catering, temporary fencing and barricades, laundry and medical services, power generation, refuse collection, and other services required for temporary “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States.

KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus.

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border, the same pretense used in the language of the KBR request for services. During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”

Rex 84 was devised by Col. Oliver North, who was with the NSC and appointed liaison to FEMA. John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of “national preparedness” programs for FEMA, and North designed the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million “American Negroes” in the event of a black militant uprising in the United States.

Following a crackdown by police on Occupy Wall Street protesters around the nation, Oakland, California, mayor Jean Quan mentioned during an interview with the BBC that she was on a conference call with leaders of 18 US cities shortly before a wave of raids broke up Occupy Wall Street encampments across the country. It was later discovered that the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal police agencies had coordinated the often violent response to the protests.

New York Rep. Peter King, who heads up the House Homeland Security Subcommittee, signaled a sense of urgency when he said the federal government has “to be careful not to allow this movement to get any legitimacy. I’m taking this seriously in that I’m old enough to remember what happened in the 1960′s when the left-wing took to the streets and somehow the media glorified them and it ended up shaping policy. We can’t allow that to happen.” The federal government responded similarly in the 1960s and 70s when the FBI organized and unleashed its unconstitutional secret police under the covert banner of COINTELPRO.

In addition to the DHS characterizing Americans supporting states’ rights and the Constitution as terrorists, the Defense Department’s Antiterrorism and Force Protection Annual Refresher Training Course in 2009 advised its personnel that political protest amounts to “low-level terrorism.”

All of this leaves one to wonder what is really up.  Could this all be coincidence and just our government “do diligently contingency planning”, or do those leading these efforts know something the rest of us do not?  Good question, but a better question is how this being handled in MSM, or should I say NOT being covered at all in MSM.  The fact that the CONgress ran over our constitution with a vote of 93-7 I believe is the “Baby Ruth” in the pool.  We should be asking more about this during the dumbates, heh?

The Arab Spring, The European Summer, and An Americans Fall

As the economy continues to collapse and various sovereigns try to institute the austerity programs that are being demanded by the bankers, we have reached the point I have been writing about for over a year.  The riots have broken out on every continent.

In the last week alone there have been major riots in England, Chile, Israel, China, and the US.  These riots are in addition to  the riots that are on-going in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iran, and Lebanon.  There is no longer any doubt that the Global Revolution has begun.

Words and discussions certainly can help us understand, but understand what?  The fact these riots have begun is simple.  When hope is no longer visible to the masses and basic essential needs of food, shelter, employment, and health care are not met, all Hell will break loose!  Any military veteran will tell you that the most fearless warriors are the hungry ones with no other options.

But I think the following photo journal  of the week’s activities will say it all

The London Riots

The Riots in Chile

The Riots in Israel

 

The Riots in San Francisco

The next few months are truly dangerous times.  The level of tension is high and the actions of those in charge to stabilize the situation are woefully absent.  My advice is if possible, stay isolated and prepared to survive on your own for 1-4 weeks.  I fear a gross over reaction from various enforcement forces and certainly a military action against the various domestic citizens.  Secondly, most of the riots are involving massive looting which only justifies the over reaction of the various police and military.

Global Revolution Must Occur

Some are looking the phenomena occurring in the Middle East as if somehow it is unique to that region and we would like to believe it is related to monarchies or religion.  I assure you nothing would be further from the truth and the facts.  I just returned from the region.  I was in fact in the streets the night Mubarak stepped down.  It is about a dignified living.

Now, in the US we have stirrings in Wisconsin, Indiana, New York, and Ohio.  We witnessed the “in-your-face” fake David Koch call to Governor Walker of Wisconsin.  What is happening in Wisconsin will spread everywhere.  Governors are meeting in Washington today to discuss the overwhelming $175 Billion budget shortfalls collectively facing the states.

However, attempting to bust unions and collective bargaining in the face of the enormous tax cuts given to the ultra wealthy is just not going to sit here as it has not been accepted globally.  There is a moment when the masses do their own math and guess what doesn’t add up?  Distribution of wealth in the society is the problem.  It is that simple and it has reached the event horizon.

The PTB and their political hacks actually still believe they can maintain their power structure and as a result they move forward with the methodical destruction of the world’s middle class as the “cost” to maintain their position.  Their solution: just print more money everywhere! Consider this great reporting by Michael Snyder – BLN Contributing Writer.

“If the U.S. dollar is being devalued so rapidly, then why does it sometimes increase in value against other global currencies?  Well, it is because everybody is recklessly printing money now.  The 6 charts which you are about to see below prove this.  The truth is that it is not just the U.S. Federal Reserve which has been printing money like there is no tomorrow.  Out of control money printing has also been happening in the UK, in the EU, in Japan, in China and in India.  There are times when one particular global currency will fall faster than the others, but the reality is that they are all being rapidly devalued.  Unfortunately, this is a recipe for a global economic nightmare.

Right now you can almost smell the panic as it rises in global financial markets.  Investors all over the world are racing to get out of paper and to get into hard assets.  Just about anything that is “real” and “tangible” is hot right now.  Gold hit a record high last year and it is on the rise again.  In fact, it just hit a new five-week high.  Demand for silver is becoming absolutely ridiculous right now.  Oil is marching up towards $100 a barrel again.  Agricultural commodities have exploded in price over the past year.  Many investors are even gobbling up art and other collectibles.

Paper money is no longer considered to be safe.  All over the globe investors are watching all of the reckless money printing that has been going on and they are becoming alarmed.  An increasing number of investors and financial institutions are putting their wealth into hard assets that are real and tangible in an effort to preserve their wealth.

The other day, a reader of this column named James sent me some charts that he had put together.  I thought they were so good that I asked him if I could include them in an article.  These charts show how central banks all over the globe have been recklessly printing money.  Over the last 30 years virtually the entire world has developed a great love affair with fiat currency….

So is everyone printing money?

Of course anyone with half a brain can see where all of this is ultimately headed.  In the end, inflation is going to spiral out of control and we are going to witness financial implosion on a global scale. So why don’t these nations just adopt sound money?

Well, it turns out that if you are a member of the IMF, you are specifically prohibited from having gold-backed currency.  Yes, you read that correctly.

In fact, U.S. Representative Ron Paul once sent an open letter to the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve asking about this and he received no response.  The following is the content of that letter….

Dear Sirs:

I am writing regarding Article 4, Section 2b of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)’s Articles of Agreement. As you may be aware, this language prohibits countries who are members of the IMF from linking their currency to gold. Thus, the IMF is forbidding countries suffering from an erratic monetary policy from adopting the most effective means of stabilizing their currency. This policy could delay a country’s recovery from an economic crisis and retard economic growth, thus furthering economic and political instability.

I would greatly appreciate an explanation from both the Treasury and the Federal Reserve of the reasons the United States has continued to acquiesce in this misguided policy. Please contact Mr. Norman Singleton, my legislative director, if you require any further information regarding this request. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Ron Paul
U.S. House of Representatives

Sadly, the truth is that the global elite don’t want nations to start adopting gold-backed currencies.  They want countries to use fiat currencies that they can openly manipulate for their own benefit.

At this point, every nation on earth (to the best of my knowledge) uses a fiat currency.  All of the major global currencies are being continually devalued.  In fact, there are times when counties will purposely devalue their currencies even more rapidly in order to gain a competitive advantage in world trade.

This is why so many investors now have such an aversion to paper currency.  It starts losing value the moment you take possession of it.  In some areas of the world, “gold fever” is absolutely exploding.  For example, China imported five times as much gold in 2010 as it did in 2009.  On the Shanghai Gold Exchange, trading volume soared 43 percent during the first 10 months of 2010.

And while these reckless monetary policies continue, consider the fact that NOT ONE individual has faced any kind of criminal charges in the 2008 collapse, NOT ONE.  However, the “Baby Ruth” always floats to the top of the pool.  Consider this just out over at the Huffington Post.

Goldman Sachs collected $2.9 billion from the American International Group as payout on a speculative trade it placed for the benefit of its own account, receiving the bulk of those funds after AIG received an enormous taxpayer rescue, according to the final report of an investigative panel appointed by Congress.

The fact that a significant slice of the proceeds secured by Goldman through the AIG bailout landed in its own account–as opposed to those of its clients or business partners– has not been previously disclosed. These details about the workings of the controversial AIG bailout, which eventually swelled to $182 billion, are among the more eye-catching revelations in the report to be released Thursday by the bipartisan Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

The details underscore the degree to which Goldman–the most profitable securities firm in Wall Street history–benefited directly from the massive emergency bailout of the nation’s financial system, a deal crafted on the watch of then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who had previously headed the bank.

“If these allegations are correct, it appears to have been a direct transfer of wealth from the Treasury to Goldman’s shareholders,” said Joshua Rosner, a bond analyst and managing director at independent research consultancy Graham Fisher & Co., after he was read the relevant section of the report. “The AIG counterparty bailout, which was spun as necessary to protect the public, seems to have protected the institution at the expense of the public.”

Goldman and AIG both declined to comment.

When news first broke in 2009 that Goldman had been an indirect beneficiary of the AIG bailout, collecting the full value of some $14 billion in outstanding insurance polices it held with the firm, the officials who brokered the deal justified these terms as a necessary stabilizer for the broader financial system. As the world’s largest insurance company, AIG’s inability to cover its outstanding obligations could have threatened the solvency of the institutions holding its policies, asserted the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which oversaw the deal.

Goldman fended off claims that the arrangement amounted to a backdoor bailout by asserting that none of the money from the AIG rescue landed in its own coffers. Rather, those funds went to compensate clients or institutions on the other side of its trades, Goldman said.

Many times in past posts, I have both predicted and worried over what a violent reaction would look like in say the US or the UK.  Now more than ever, I see the kindling for such a fire is about to be lit.  I only hope that the people, when they do stand up, do so peacefully.  If there is any lesson we can learn from Tahrir Square was the dignified and resolute manner in which the people imposed their will.

Trends For 2011

As we begin 2011, I want to thank my readers for their support and their inputs for the site during 2010.  It appears that more and more folks are interested in knowing “the rest of the story”.  Traffic on the site expanded seven fold during the year.  Interestingly, there were also a numerous amounts of inquiries asking to “buy ad space” on my site.  Just for the record, this site is and always will be 100% sponsor free.  It is a simple philosophy. This site is responsible to everyone and beholding to none.  As the jackboots start attacking the web this year in earnest, and they will, we will try to stay visible as long as possible.

As we face the beginning of 2011we wonder “what next”.  When we look back at 2010, it played out much like we anticipated.  Last spring, we said look out for the summer of hell.  Between the weather and the economy, I think my European readers, especially, would agree it could have been called “hellish”. I believe the lack of economic recovery has created hellish situations in more than 150,000,000 families globally who lost their homes and jobs.

So what is next?  Let’s start with what the Trends Research Institute has published.

By Gerald Celente – Trends Research Institute

KINGSTON, NY, 28 December 2010 — After the tumultuous years of the Great Recession, a battered people may wish that 2011 will bring a return to kinder, gentler times.  But that is not what we are predicting:

1.  Wake-Up Call  The people of all nations, having become convinced of the inability of leaders and know-it-all “arbiters of everything” to fulfill their promises, will do more than just question authority, they will defy it.  The seeds of revolution will be sown….

2.  Crack-Up 2011  In 2011, with the bailout funds and arsenal of other schemes to prop up the economy depleted, teetering economies will collapse, currency wars will ensue, trade barriers will be erected, economic unions will splinter, and the onset of the “Greatest Depression” (a trend we forecasted before the massive bailouts existed) will be recognized by everyone….

3.  Screw the People  As times get even tougher and people get even poorer, the “authorities” will intensify their efforts to extract the funds needed to meet fiscal obligations.  While there will be variations on the theme, the governments’ song will be the same: cut what you give, raise what you take….

4.  Crime Waves  No job + no money + compounding debt = high stress, strained relations, short fuses.  In 2011, with the fuse lit, it will be prime time for Crime Time.  As Gerald Celente says, “When people lose everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”  And “lose it” they will….

5.  Crackdown on Liberty  As crime rates rise, so will the voices demanding a crackdown.  A national crusade to “Get Tough on Crime” will be waged against the citizenry.  And just as in the “War on Terror,” where “suspected terrorists” are killed before proven guilty or jailed without trial, in the “War on Crime” everyone is a suspect until proven innocent….

6.  Alternative Energy  In laboratories and workshops unnoticed by mainstream analysts, scientific visionaries and entrepreneurs are forging a new physics incorporating principles once thought impossible, working to create devices that liberate more energy than they consume.  What are they, and how long will it be before they can be brought to market?

7.  Journalism 2.0   2011 will mark the year that new methods of news and information distribution will render the 20th century model obsolete.  With its unparalleled reach across borders and language barriers, “Journalism 2.0” has the potential to influence and educate citizens in a way that governments and corporate media moguls would never permit….

8.  Cyberwars   In 2010, every major government acknowledged that Cyberwar was a clear and present danger and, in fact, had already begun.  The demonstrable effects of Cyberwar and its companion, Cybercrime, are already significant – and will come of age in 2011.  Equally disruptive will be the harsh measures taken by global governments to control free access to the web, identify its users, and literally shut down computers that it considers a threat to national security….

9.  Youth of the World Unite  University degrees in hand yet out of work, in debt and with no prospects on the horizon, feeling betrayed and angry, young adults and 20-somethings are mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore.   Not mature enough to control their impulses, the confrontations they engage in will escalate disproportionately….

10.  End of The World!  The closer we get to 2012, the louder the calls will be that “The End is near!”  Among Armageddonites the actual end of the world, and annihilation of the Earth in 2012, is a matter of certainty.  Even the rational and informed may sometimes feel the world is in a perilous state.  Both streams of thought are leading many to reevaluate their chances for personal survival, be it in heaven or on earth….

Gonzalo Lira, one of the most prolific bloggers on the EU economy, thinks as I do that Europe is in deep shit—there’s really no polite way to say it. Back in the spring of 2010, Greece went down the tubes, as its sovereign debt collapsed in price, and its ability to borrow money from the open markets—and thereby continue to operate—for all intents and purposes ceased.

Then in November/December of 2010, the Irish sovereign debt also began to tumble, as it became increasingly clear that Ireland simply does not have the wherewithal to backstop it’s disproportionately large—and insolvent—banking sector. Angela Merkel’s less than clever words in an interview (to the effect that Irish debt holders might have to take a haircut) sparked a rise in Irish debt yields, squeezing Ireland’s ability to borrow fresh cash to keep its insolvent banks afloat—thereby creating the need for a rescue package from the IMF, the UK, the European Union, and the European Central Bank. What was painfully apparent in 2010 was that the Eurozone and the European Union had no mechanism to handle a crisis in one of its member states. Nor is it moving forward to correct the single biggest weakness of the euro scheme—namely, the ability of each member state to issue its own debt.

Possible EMU Collapse: What To Pay Attention To In 2011. After the Greek and Irish bailouts, it looks like Portugal and possibly Belgium are up next in this perverse game of musical chairs played to the tune of sovereign debt, but these smaller countries are dwarfed by Spain: Spain is where the European game is really at.

As Lira pointed out, Spain is twice the size of Greece, Ireland and Portugal combined—Spain is roughly half the size of Germany—Spain has a fiscal deficit of over 11% of GDP for 2010, and a total debt of over 80% of GDP, data here (I am counting the accumulated debt of comunidades autónomas, which is so far 10.2% of GDP and steadily rising; data here)—Spain has an unemployment of over 20%—in short, Spain is trouble. Not “Spain is in trouble”—that’s obvious, but that’s not my point: Spain is trouble, trouble for the German banks that own so much of the Spanish debt. Trouble for Germany, which is propping up its insolvent banks (What, you think German politicians are any less craven than American politicians?). Spain is trouble for the European Union, for what a German banking crisis might mean for the EU as a whole and as an institution.  More than anything, Spain is trouble for the European Financial Stability Facility, because Spain is too big to be saved—and there’s really no way to finesse that hard fact.


Do you know what a lynchpin is? According to the dictionary, a lynchpin is “a pin passed through the end of an axle to keep the wheel in position”. Hence the figure of speech: Without a lynchpin, the wheel comes off, and the whole vehicle crashes. In the case of Europe, the lynchpin can come off awfully fast—think of Ireland. A few impolitic words from Angela Merkel, and suddenly the Irish bond market panics. Suddenly, Ireland is teetering on the brink of insolvency, unable to meet its funding needs. And that was Ireland—all due respect to those wonderful people, but we’re talking a GDP of a paltry $227 billion. Ben Bernanke takes a morning dump bigger than that. What’s Ireland’s $227 billion when compared to Spain’s economy of $1.5 trillion?

How the EU and the ECB handle an eventual Spanish sovereign debt crisis will determine the very future of the European Union.  If the EU and the ECB are clever, and brave, and humble in the face of failure, then they’ll expel Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy from the European Monetary Union. The euro will remain the currency of the stronger economies—France, Holland, Germany—while the weaker economies will go back to their original currencies, and immediately devalue so as to kickstart their economies.

In the US, I believe we are going to see the dollar fail three times in 2011.  First, the dollar is going to be challenged against the Euro.  It will fail, but shortly there after, the Euro will begin its  final demise.  Then the dollar will be challenged as the world’s reserve currency, and once again it will fail and about this time everyone in mainstream media will introduce the world to the Bancor.  Finally,  the federal reserve note will be challenged as the US currency.  Already we are seeing many areas and communities developing alternative currencies in the US.

Commodities rose drastically all throughout 2010: Every single commodity class, every single one of them rising by double digit percentage points—at least.  The winter weather globally will cause huge impacts to food supplies and hyperinflation will rear its ugly head everywhere.

However, I think the most serious stories and realities of 2011 will be civil unrest.  People all over the world have lost faith in their governmental bodies and hungry, homeless, hopeless people are really going to start taking actions, and most of those actions will be violent and irrational.  This is going to invoke governmental response and things are going to escalate quickly.

So, bottom line, if you haven’t followed my advice in 2010, I ask you to reconsider this one question.  If you wake tomorrow morning and there is no job, no food, no utilities, and soldiers on your street to maintain order, are you ready to survive for the next three months without leaving your home?  Are you? I want to wish you all a Happy New Year, but this year, I hope you accept my sincerest wishes to have a safe and secure New Year.

Right on Schedule Here Comes the Summer of Hell

In previous articles I have been chronicling how the US government seems to be making big plans to deploy troops on US soil and also to “house” a lot of Americans in the so-called FEMA camps.  At first when I first started to investigate these stories, I really thought it was mostly originating from conspiracy nuts and there wasn’t much to it.  However, I soon began to realize this was not paranoid conspiracy whackos over reacting to sound government planning.  Indeed, the government seems to be making major plans of some sort to deploy troops on US soil in response to some future event.

In the interest of keeping that story updated, there have been recent further activities that I feel I must bring to the attention of my readers.  On the predictive linguistics side, there is strong indication of some sort of major internal US event in the November timeframe of this year.  Also since I last updated this storyline, talk of revolution not just on a domestic basis, but a global basis has been continually increasing in frequency.  George Ure over at Urbansurvival.Com coined the phrase “GLOBEREV”.

First, a little background is provided for those of you who don’t follow the story closely. U.S. Northern Command was formed in 2002.  Here, is their own words, from their site is their mission:

U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) was established Oct. 1, 2002 to provide command and control of Department of Defense (DOD) homeland defense efforts and to coordinate defense support of civil authorities. USNORTHCOM defends America’s homeland — protecting our people, national power, and freedom of action.

USNORTHCOM’s specific mission:

USNORTHCOM anticipates and conducts Homeland Defense and Civil Support operations within the assigned area of responsibility to defend, protect, and secure the United States and its interests

USNORTHCOM’s AOR includes air, land and sea approaches and encompasses the continental United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico and the surrounding water out to approximately 500 nautical miles. It also includes the Gulf of Mexico, the Straits of Florida, portions of the Caribbean region to include The Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The commander of USNORTHCOM is responsible for theater security cooperation with Canada, Mexico, and The Bahamas.

USNORTHCOM consolidates under a single unified command existing missions that were previously executed by other DOD organizations. This provides unity of command, which is critical to mission accomplishment.

USNORTHCOM plans, organizes and executes homeland defense and civil support missions, but has few permanently assigned forces. The command is assigned forces whenever necessary to execute missions, as ordered by the president or secretary of defense.

Civil service employees and uniformed members representing all service branches work at USNORTHCOM’s headquarters located at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The commander of USNORTHCOM also commands the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), a bi-national command responsible for aerospace warning, aerospace control, and maritime warning for Canada, Alaska and the continental United States.

USNORTHCOM’s civil support mission includes domestic disaster relief operations that occur during fires, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes. Support also includes counter-drug operations and managing the consequences of a terrorist event employing a weapon of mass destruction. The command provides assistance to a Primary Agency when tasked by DOD. Per the Posse Comitatus Act, military forces can provide civil support, but cannot become directly involved in law enforcement.

In providing civil support, USNORTHCOM generally operates through established Joint Task Forces subordinate to the command. An emergency must exceed the capabilities of local, state and federal agencies before USNORTHCOM becomes involved. In most cases, support will be limited, localized and specific. When the scope of the disaster is reduced to the point that the Primary Agency can again assume full control and management without military assistance, USNORTHCOM will exit, leaving the on-scene experts to finish the job.

The last two paragraphs of this mission statement is interesting in that they acknowledge the Posse Comitatus Act and are very careful to describe when they can circumvent that act.  In a state of presidential declared national state of emergency.  President Obama declared that state of emergency during the so-called swine flu epidemic and has NOT rescinded that order since.

USNORTHCOM started out with 20,000 troops, then late last fall, its troop strength grew to 60,000 troops and we began to see military type vehicles with UN type markings being deployed all over the US.  They were confirmed spotted in Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Now today the following emerges:

Source: Examiner

In October of this year, one month prior to the November midterm elections, a special army unit known as ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ will be ready for deployment on American soil if so ordered by the President.

The special force, which is the new name being given to the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, has been training at Fort Stewart, Georgia and is composed of 80,000 troops.

According to the Army Times,

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack. The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’

A local radio talk show host reported that he had been in contact with a member of the military.  This military source stated that the armed forces have been alerted to the strong possibility that civil unrest may occur in the United States this summer, prior to the midterm elections of 2010.

The source described this as ‘our long, hot summer of discontent’ that could be eerily reminiscent of the summer of 1968 when riots broke out in many of our largest cities.

However, the summer of 2010 could well be much worse due to the players involved.  In 1968 the major players were war protesters.  This time, the outrage simmering beneath the surface of American society involves a broad cross-section of the heartland, and most of them are heavily armed.

It is highly unlikely that these citizens would ever initiate armed conflict of any kind.  In their view, gun rights are for self-defense–and for defense against tyrannical government, which our Founders regarded as the most dangerous force on earth.

However, it has become clear that other groups may well initiate violence in order to start an ‘incident’ that would give Congress a reason to implement martial law, confiscate the citizens’ guns, enforce curfews, and suspend all future elections until such time as it is deemed ‘safe’ to proceed with human liberty as encapsulated in the right to vote.

Tea Party members, for example, have been warned in recent days that members of Andy Stern’s SEIU union and members of the organization formerly known as ACORN plan to infiltrate Tea Party gatherings in order to incite some sort of incident that could result in armed conflict.

To what extent would soldiers use deadly force during such ‘civil unrest’ should the Consequence Management Response Team be utilized?  During the anti-war riots of the 1960s they killed student protesters.  What about now?

The military source cited by the radio host today was asked this very question.  He would merely say that the culture of the U.S. military is changing–half support Obama and the other half are dead-set against him. His conclusion?  There is no way to know for sure if they would obey an order to open fire on ordinary citizens.

When you consider the current situation in Thailand or Greece for example, and look at the events unfolding in Kyrgyzstan or today in the Ukraine one has to wonder what is really going on and who is really behind these efforts.  Granted the economic crisis worldwide has caused a lot of pressure and strain, but I believe there is much more to this story than we know.

The Founders insisted that standing armies were never to be used against American citizens on our own soil, no matter what violations of this principle have occurred in the years following.  In the spirit of the Patriots and of real journalists government must be questioned constantly and held to intense scrutiny in order to preserve liberty.

Some of the more disturbing facts relate to exactly what the troops at USNOTHCOM are training for in getting ready for the Summer of Hell.  According to Northern Command‘s Web site, the CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force is a team that will ultimately number about 4,700 personnel from the different military branches that would deploy as the Department of Defense’s initial response force.

Its capabilities include search and rescue, decontamination, medical, aviation, communications and logistical support. Each CCMRF will be composed of three functional task forces — Task Force Operations, Task Force Medical and Task Force Aviation — that have individual operational focus and mission skills, the Web site says. The Army says the unit would be deployed to help local, state or federal agencies deal with such incidents, not take the lead. The law enforcement-type training is not connected to its new mission, it says.

Given these recent activities and keeping to my belief that MSM is not reporting this or underreporting this, I think everybody ought to start paying real close attention to these issues.  The CBRNE side of the equation is most disconcerting and when we look at the rhetoric around a possible Israeli-Iranian conflict brewing and that relates to nuclear weapons and capabilities things start to get a little on the scary side.

Also, as I have been consistently saying, we need to tone down the armed citizenry rhetoric and the Tea Party folks really need to take the frontline responsibility in this arena.  If they are who they say they are..true patriots, then they would not precipitate actions that could lead to martial law and all that is associated with that implication. Stay out of the fray, hunker down and most importantly, let your politicians know we are not going to allow anarchy to occur in our streets, maybe in our CONgress, but not our streets.

Time to Stop Pussy Footing…We Must All Decide

I have been writing this blog for nearly one year now. 76 articles have been published by me.  We have discussed a number of issues.  In each article I try to present just facts, not conjectures, anecdotes, or conspiracy theories.  The article concerning the underground cities seems to have been the only article that really struck a chord with some folks because it has been viewed over 400 times!  I have come to realize that while I have tried to report on the issues that I think we all need to be aware of and how MSM has avoided or under-reported these issues, I have never in one article stated exactly what I think and know is going on.  I have never put the whole picture in front of you to consider.

The other day, one of the warriors out there trying to get the “truth” out stimulated me to do this article.  For over ten years, Adrian Salbuchi from Argentina has been trying to get the world to listen and pay attention.  He is a patriot of mankind if there ever was such a champion.  He works tirelessly to expose the PTB and their agenda.  While many of us take a piece of the puzzle and talk about it, he has kept it all in focus.  I have for over 30 years been on this quest to “know” the truth.  It isn’t easy because the real truth is embedded in a ball of twine, but like a ball of twine, it is in the end one piece of string.  You just have to have the patience to unwind it. In fact, our whole existence, history, and future is a single string of events wrapped up like a ball of twine.  So here goes.

For at least 1,ooo years, maybe more, there has been knowledge about the events that are about to unfold within the next few years.  These events will transform life on this planet as we know it.  When this knowledge was fully realized by the educated elite of the time, it was decided that this knowledge should never be released and in fact, those that uncovered this knowledge would and could use it to “control” the whole of mankind.  In fact they could always be in control and power.  While it can be argued that the knowledge existed long before this time it truly was not acted on in an organized fashion until it came into the possession of the Roman Catholic Church as a result of discoveries made during the Crusades and at the time, the Roman Catholic Church was essentially at the head of all major powers in Europe.  Therefore a decision was made in the Vatican to withhold this information from the general public as this knowledge could undermine the entire authority of the church.  The only organized power structure outside of the church with this knowledge were the Knights Templar who had “discovered” the knowledge and faithfully brought it to Rome.  They were systematically terminated to insure the sole possessors and controllers of the knowledge would be the Vatican.

Over the years, through many kings and queens of various European countries and eventually to the new world, everything was done with the design to maintain this secrecy.  It became necessary to control commerce, politics, economies and finance.  Therefore control mechanisms were required outside of the Vatican to ensure the integrity of the secret.  The Illuminati, the higher orders of Masonry, bankers, and eventually to the modern times, the Bildebergers  MJ12 and Council on Foreign Relations were designed and controlled to execute the plans. This is basically the structure of the “shadow government”.

What are the plans?  Well in a nutshell, the geophysical events that will take place over the next 4-6 years will reduce the world population to around 2 billion or less and all institutions, systems of government and economy will be destroyed.  This is not conjecture unfortunately it is fact.  The PTB are moving to establish complete control PRIOR to these events so that they will emerge from the events still in full and complete control.  This now requires them to establish a single world government prior to the event horizon and that is exactly what is going on at this very moment.  This isn’t about globalization of economies anymore, this is about one world government.  All the events of the 20th century were lead ups to this time.  First was the consolidation to two world superpowers, then the elimination of one of them.  The Soviet Union fell without a shot fired.

Now however, the remaining superpower must go!  They cannot risk a real patriot emerging and exposing the one world government plan.  All of the events in the last 20 years are leading to the event when the US collapses thereby requiring the establishment of one world government.  Adrian points out very accurately the twelve steps to this goal.

Global Financial Collapse – This actually is being accomplished right before our eyes. the weapons in this war are things like derivatives and repos. It actually started in 2001, when the weapons were used for the first time against a sovereign economy and Argentina was brought to its knees.  The next targets were Iceland and Ireland and now the targets are Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal to bring the EU down.  Then the US is next.  The army deployed by the PTB are CitiBank, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, and various large hedge funds.  If you really look at this in this manner, the facts are truly undeniable. This isn’t going to happen, it is happening right now and right on schedule.  This is creating a  deepening economic crisis that will not enable any one government or individual to challenge the PTB.

This has already begun to create a growing social upheaval which will lead to a “reason” to have “domestic” armies controlling the populations in each country.  The evidence of this is already unfolding in China, Chile, Haiti, Greece, and to a lesser extend in every country.  One only has to look at how “police” forces are equipped today to realize this transition is well underway.  In the US, the formation of Northern Command and the FEMA camps are very real and they exist.  For what?

In order for the PTB to control the psyche of the world population, the majority of us globally must believe all of this is necessary for our well-being and safety so a number of events have and will be staged to keeps us compliant and accepting of this transition to world government with a single police force.  The war on “terror”, 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Iran are ALL planned and staged events to get us mentally prepared to accept this total control.  At first when people began to see these events for what they are they were labeled conspiracy theorists, but most recently because of the internet and good science these charges are becoming more credible.  The evidence of thermite and nano-thermite at ground zero and the fact the fires burned there until December 20th is just now emerging into the mainstream of conciousness.  If in fact, our own government, or more precisely a shadow government was involved in these events, what do you think the public reaction as related to the faith in government will be?  Exactly, the elimination of the last superpower and that void is to be filled by a single world government.

The last two elements in the manipulation of our psyche is in the context of religion and security.  I believe, as Adrian does, that we are going to see more “mega terrorists” attacks, war in the middle east, an assassination of a key world figure on the level of scale to a John Kennedy and further beating up of “rogue states” such as Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, and Somalia.  This will lead to a “nuclear accident” which will then require a single world entity to take control of all nuclear facilities and weapons.  With this move there is no need to go house to house and collect handguns and shot guns.

Finally, the religious issue I believe is going to be handled by staging “virtual” and profound events.  Virtual events are like Building 7 going down on 9/11 even though it was not hit nor did any fires start in that building.  Here is where prophecy meets reality, but unfortunately the “reality” will be a staged event. So look for the return of Jesus Christ in your neighborhood soon. Just for good measure we will also see “alien contact”.  Again staged.  Do aliens exist?  Yes, however, there is no such term as alien.  Hundreds of thousands of civilizations exist in this galaxy and every other galaxy.  Many civilizations have been present on this planet since the beginning, but there are strict rules concerning the evolution of new civilizations and non-interference is truly a prime directive.  However, since at least 1935, these civilizations have been requesting that the PTB and leaders of the world prepare us for this transition that is about to occur and not ONE leader has had the moral fiber or courage to do so. Not one.

The good news is that in the end the PTB will fail in their plan.  Ironically, they already know this, but have elected to continue with the plan anyway.  OK so I have laid it out.  You can certify me totally crazy now or you can be a true patriot and prove me wrong by becoming more informed than me.  If I am right however, everything I just said will to continue to unfold. If it does I wonder when you wake up or will you choose to just lie there with your eyes closed hoping the big bad man goes away?  I wonder?

The Clouds are Gathering and the Second Dip Down Cometh

When the car is headed to a brick wall at 100 mph and is only five feet from the wall, brakes do no good.  That is where we are right now concerning how this financial crises has been managed till now.  Three events this week alone point to this reality graphically.  First, regulators on Friday shuttered banks in Florida, Illinois, Maryland and Utah, boosting to 26 the number of bank failures in the U.S. so far this year following the 140 brought down in 2009 by mounting loan defaults and the recession. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over Sun American Bank, based in Boca Raton, Fla., with $535.7 million in assets and $443.5 million in deposits. Also seized were Bank of Illinois of Normal, Ill., with $211.7 million in assets and $198.5 million in deposits; Waterfield Bank in Germantown, Md., with $155.6 million in assets and $156.4 million in deposits; and Centennial Bank in Ogden, Utah, with $215.2 million in assets and $205.1 million in deposits.

What was even more telling was for Waterfield Bank, no buyer was found, so the FDIC will set up a new savings institution that will operate until April 5 to allow customers access to their deposits and give them time to open accounts at other banks.  The FDIC was also unable to find a buyer for Centennial Bank, and it approved the payout of the institution’s insured deposits. As a result, checks to the retail depositors for their insured funds will be mailed on Monday. Zions First National Bank in Salt Lake City agreed to accept the failed bank’s direct deposits from the federal government, including Social Security and Veterans’ payments.

Further, unannounced in MSM is the fact that there is nearly 3,000! additional mid and small banks in trouble on the commercial real estate loan portfolios.  What this means in perspective is that 3000 out of the remaining 8000 small and medium banks in America are on the verge of collapse.  The big get bigger and kill all the rest.  If you have been following my blog, I have been warning for months now that this is not just poor management or a twist of economic fate, it is in fact an assault on the monetary backbone of our economy and not just our economy, but the world economy.

When you start putting the pieces together, you can only shake your head at the hubris and greed that is being demonstrated by the PTB in this all out assault.  Right out in front of God and everybody! Amazing really.  Here is another little factoid thanks to Webster G. Tarpley over at GCN Radio to support my assertion.

This is what emerged during the first week of December with a speculative assault or bear raid against Greek and Spanish government bonds as well as the euro itself, accompanied by a scurrilous press campaign targeting the “PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain),” an acronym for the countries just named, coming from inside the bowels of Goldman Sachs. Now comes concrete proof of this conspiracy in the form of a Feb. 8 “idea dinner,” held at the Manhattan townhouse of Monness, Crespi, Hardt & Co, a boutique investment bank. Among those present were SAC Capital Advisors, David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital (a veteran of the fatal assault on Lehman Brothers in the late summer of 2008), Donald Morgan of Brigade Capital, and, most tellingly, Soros Fund Management. The consensus that emerged that night was that Greek government bonds were the weak flank of the euro, and that once a Greek debt crisis had been detonated, all outcomes would be bad for the euro. The assembled predators agreed that Greece was the first domino in Europe. Donald Morgan was adamant that the Greek contagion could soon infect all sovereign debt in the world, including national, state, municipal and all other forms of government debt. This would mean California, the UK, and the US itself, among many others. The details of this at dinner were revealed in the headline story of the Wall Street Journal on Friday, February 26, 2010. (See article)

Nor was this the only cabal in town intent on attacking the euro through the week Greek flank. The article cited suggests that GlobeOp Financial Services and Paulson & Co. are also piling on. The zombie banks were also heavily engaged. The article reported that Goldman Sachs, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch, and Barclays Bank of London were also assisting speculators in placing highly leveraged bearish bets against the euro. Note that these zombie banks are alive today because of US taxpayer money, in Barclay’s case through AIG.

It amounted to a deliberate attempt to create a large-scale world monetary crisis which would certainly bring with it the dreaded second wave of the current world economic depression. The creation of monetary chaos in Europe through the convulsive destruction of the euro under speculative attack would cripple commodity production in western Europe, severely undermining one of the dwindling areas of the world economy which are still functioning. The genocidal implications for humanity ought to be obvious, but the assembled hedge fund hyenas were not concerned with these consequences.

So here we are no jobs, those that are working are seeing decreasing incomes.  No banks are loaning because they need every dime they take in to cover their exposures on commercial loans.  If you can get a loan you are going to pay a much higher interest rate and finally you are facing a much higher tax rate in 2010.  Do you see how hopeless this situation is getting?  I am doing this article though, not because of these situations, but to point to what happens as an end result of these facts.  When the second wave hits, people are going to panic and be angry.  The PTB are counting on it.  As I have also pointed out, everything is in place to contain the social unrest and declare martial law. We are seeing a microcosm of this in Greece today.  The Glenn Becks and Michelle Bachmans of the world are inciting us to revolt.

DON’T DO IT.  Don’t play into that hand as the cards are stacked against us.  The one contingency that the PTB can not counter is an informed and involved voter. If we want to revolutionize our country, it should be at the ballot box.  Throw these bought and paid for politicians out on their ears and let’s allow honest people to once again govern by our consent.  We should insist that anyone going to Washington will do three things.  First, legislate a public campaign finance law.  End this unbalanced influence game.  Secondly, tax derivatives heavily.  End this predator speculation where the banksters win on both ends.  Third, break up these “too big to fail” institutions and segregate banking from investments.  There were reasons for those regulations and we should restore them.  Then maybe we have a chance to come out of this downward spiral.  Maybe.
