Infowars: Three States Subjected To "Martial Law Sweeps"

Source: http://infowars.net/articles/april2008/180408impact.htm

Infowars is reporting a Martial Law Training Exercise has begun in three states. (see source, looks like last weekend. -rep.) "Operation Sudden Impact" as it is called is also being reported by ClearChannel owned Eyewitness News Memphis, though they have labelled it a "crime crackdown."

http://www.myeyewitnessnews.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=198dd5c1-dea5-41db-8661-80e7dd518a44

From Infowars:

Federal law enforcement agencies co-opted sheriffs offices as well state and local police forces in three states last weekend for a vast round up operation that one sheriff's deputy has described as "martial law training".

Given the military style name "Operation Sudden Impact", the initiative saw officers from six counties rounding up fugitives, conducting traffic checkpoints, climbing on boats on the Mississippi River and doing other "crime-abatement" programs all under the label of "anti-terrorism".


Investigation into Whether America is Still a Constitutional Government

NSPD-51 Is a Red Herring: There is ALREADY Martial Law in America

Many people have expressed outrage at NSPD-51 -- a presidential directive that gives Bush dictatorial powers in the event of a national emergency.

For example, well-known conservative writer Jerome Corsi writes:

President Bush, without so much as issuing a press statement, on May 9 signed a directive that granted near dictatorial powers to the office of the president in the event of a national emergency declared by the president.

The "National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive," with the dual designation of NSPD-51, as a National Security Presidential Directive, and HSPD-20, as a Homeland Security Presidential Directive, establishes under the office of president a new National Continuity Coordinator.

Are We ALREADY Living in a Non-Constitutional COG America?

One of the top investigative journalists in the country, Larisa Alexandrovna (the lead journalist at Raw Story), says the following concerning her attempts to determine whether or not the U.S. is still officially in a state of emergency, such as would justify the continuition of Continuity of Government (COG) Plans implemented on 9/11:

"Well, I have called around... believe it or not, no seems to have an answer as to this simple question: 'are we in a state of emergency?' "

Keep in mind that Alexandrovna has broken many top stories, later picked up by the New York Times and other mainstream publications, and has developed a broad network of contacts. And yet she couldn't find an answer.

The Darkest Alliance

We have crossed an awful threshold. The leaders of the "free world" have admitted--after years of denials and scapegoating of "bad apples"--to authorizing torture. They have admitted they are war criminals. And still impeachment hearings have not begun.

Now they have said it to our faces. What are we going to do about it?

Gary Webb refused to be complicit. For his courage, the Mockingbird character assassins remembered him with this hit-piece of an obituary: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/13/obituaries/13webb.html

After the 2004 election, five weeks before his "suicide", he called out the American people for their apathy and moral cowardice.

"What this election tells me, unfortunately, is that it doesn't matter to most Americans if their government lies to them repeatedly.

They no longer care if their leaders erode their civil liberties, push this country further towards a police state, or shroud their actions in additional layers of official secrecy.

Cages of Conquest: Part Two of Crusade of Surge and Siege

Read Part One: http://valenzuelasveritas.blogspot.com/2008/02/crusade-of-surge-and-siege-part-one-of.html

Hear No Evil, See No Evil

Americans’ ever-enduring, catatonic sleepwalk through the Empire’s vast array of bread and circus, as always produced by the Ministry of Truth and the Department of Propaganda, better known as the corporatist media, has succeeded in the creation of an ignorant, incurious and dumbed down populace completely bereft of knowledge of what is done in its name. With no concern for or understanding of geography, cultures, history, alien societies, the outside world and of the imperial aspirations of the Empire, Americans have proved easy targets to the manipulations and deceptions of the corporatist world. Seemingly unwilling to gain knowledge of anything outside American Idol or the weekly NASCAR rat race, the soldier ants and worker bees of the Empire are content to circumvent the horrors of war and the myriad crimes against humanity committed in their name in order to maintain their beautiful minds at peace.

Indeed, the corporatist media has triumphed in completely erasing America’s two disastrous occupations of Muslim lands from the peoples’ conscious and concern, in effect shifting the ongoing debacles away from the daily reality of Americans and towards the abyss of a most cavernous memory hole. Methodically and systematically, the quagmires of Iraq and Afghanistan, with all their inconvenient truths, with all their disturbing realities, with all their corresponding death, suffering and destruction, have virtually vanished into a vacuum of nothingness, transported by the corporatist state into a clandestine and secretive reality, making of these disasters non-existent nightmares that vanish upon the waking of a new day.

Crusade of Surge and Siege: Part One of Three

Homeland Born and Bred

Sojourn into the outer recesses of a nation bordering on madness, into a land deeply disturbed and emotionally bewildered, a world of anti-intellectualism and anti-rationalism, of fanaticism and fundamentalism, entering a case study into fantasyland and escapism, taking a pilgrimage into realms both of purposeful ignorance and blindness, of electing lifelong incompetents based on wanting to have a beer with them, walking through the dark valley of indifference, climbing the monolithic mountain of hubris, finally reaching the hallowed halls of smoke and mirrors, a place where only the blind lead the blind and where the deafening roars of death and destruction are easily suppressed in delusion and denial. Journey, if you will, into a nation that lost its moral compass inside the dungeons of fear and hatred.

Enter what fascists call the Homeland, what patriots used to call the United States of America, now named, simply, and appropriately, Amerika, a place where corporations enjoy more rights and protections than the People, where corporations – through their products and policies – help kill hundreds of thousands of human beings every year in the name of profit over people, making them mass murderers on a scale reserved only for humanity’s worst; a land controlled by the military-energy-industrial complex, with war the engine for unimaginable profits; a nation now without a Constitution, nor a moral standing; a country that has developed a thirst for human blood and an appetite for destruction; a land of Manifest Destiny leaving death, suffering and destruction in its wake; a sadist entity that develops and refines its crimes against humanity it inflicts upon the people of the world by first practicing them on its own citizenry.

The Year of Living Dangerously: Part One of Two

Manifestations of Intent

Can you smell the smoked fumes of a discombobulated economic engine that has ceased to function, its synergy spitting and sputtering, its many parts thrashed by the claws, and vices, of neoliberal capitalism? Can you feel the dismantling of the economic spark plug, the American consumer, as our livelihoods are sacrificed to the greed, and incompetence, of the establishment and as the value of our lives is further enslaved to the Almighty Dollar and its puppet masters?

Can you hear the roar of authoritarian Machiavelli-types, of which many exist, cheering as the Constitution is discarded like yesterday’s trash, its principles and foundations burned inside the incinerator of fascism? Can you hear the searing of one of the greatest documents of governance ever created by man as it goes up in flames thanks to the kerosene thrown at it by American corporatists in power, its ashes slowly scattering into the realm of nothingness?

Journalists, bloggers are threats in terror drill

Step 8 (Control the press) and 9 (Dissent equals treason) in closing down society according Naomi Wolf

It's the government's idea of a really bad day: Washington's Metro trains shut down. Seaport computers in New York go dark. Bloggers reveal locations of railcars with hazardous materials. Airport control towers are disrupted in Philadelphia and Chicago. Overseas, a mysterious liquid is found on London's subway.

And that's just for starters.

Those incidents were among dozens of detailed, mock disasters confronting officials rapid-fire in the U.S. government's biggest-ever "Cyber Storm" war game, according to hundreds of pages of heavily censored files obtained by The Associated Press. The Homeland Security Department ran the exercise to test the nation's hacker defenses, with help from the State Department, Pentagon, Justice Department, CIA, National Security Agency and others.

The laundry list of fictional catastrophes — which include hundreds of people on "No Fly" lists suddenly arriving at airport ticket counters — is significant because it suggests what kind of real-world trouble keeps people in the White House awake at night.

Creeping Fascism: From Nazi Germany to Post 9/11 America (Alternet)

Creeping Fascism: From Nazi Germany to Post 9/11 America
By Ray McGovern, Consortium News. Posted December 29, 2007.

Americans today are seeing the same sheepish submissiveness that characterized Germany after the burning of the Reichstag.

"There are few things as odd as the calm, superior indifference with which I and those like me watched the beginnings of the Nazi revolution in Germany, as if from a box at the theater...Perhaps the only comparably odd thing is the way that now, years later...."

These are the words of Sebastian Haffner (pen name for Raimund Pretzel), who as a young lawyer in Berlin during the 1930s experienced the Nazi takeover and wrote a first-hand account. His children found the manuscript when he died in 1999 and published it the following year as "Geschichte eines Deutschen" (The Story of a German). The book became an immediate bestseller and has been translated into 20 languages -- in English as "Defying Hitler."

No, I Won't Shut Up

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2007/12/there-you-go-again.html

The State: Shut up.

Me: What? I was just saying the government would be better if . . .

State: Be quiet . . . you are a criminal.

Me: Why? I was just exercising my right to free speech.

State: You are a homegrown terrorist.

Me: Look -- I was born in the U.S., and I am a patriotic American citizen who loves the Constitution.

State: You've been saying the government is fascist. That's hate speech. That radicalizes people and turns them into violent terrorists.

Me: But the government is, in fact, becoming fascist.

State: Listen. . . we've got all of the mainstream media and the politicians in both parties in our pockets.
We've fixed the elections and cooked all of the books.
We've militarized the police and suspended habeas corpus.

To a Fascist, ALL Americans are Terrorists

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2007/11/war-cheerleaders-view-americans-as.html

According to the wannabe-fascists:

  • The many millions of Americans who support presidential candidate Ron Paul are terrorists

Together, that adds up to pretty much the entire American population!

Bill Maher; am I the lunatic because I ask questions, demand answers, and I do the research on 9/11?

Maher; “How big a lunatic do you have to be to watch two giant airliners packed with jet fuel slam into buildings on live TV, igniting a massive inferno that burned for two hours, and then think ‘well’ if you believe that was the cause, stop asking me to raise this ridiculous topic on the show and start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you.”

How did the impact of the airliners and burning jet fuel cause WTC 1 & 2 to explode? How did the impacts of the airliners and burning jet fuel cause WTC 1 & 2 to fall at ‘free-fall’ speeds? How did the concrete pulverize into dust? How did isolated (low-heat fires) cause a total collapse? What about all the eye-witness hearing (feeling) bombs going off? You don’t find it odd that most of the steel was removed and destroyed soon after the event (I’m sure you heard a bit about removing and destroying evidence from a crime scene)? Seriously, what about WTC 7? You cannot use the whole ‘airliners and burning jet fuel’ on this one. How do isolated fires cause a steel-famed building to collapse into its own foot-print at ‘free-fall’ speeds?
You got a lot of explaining to do, Bill.

I’m the tin-foiled hat wearing conspiracy ‘the government is out to get us’ nut?

I got a bit of information for the people who simply cannot believe that the US government is malevolent; thus cannot, will not evaluate the evidence of 9/11.
The EPA knowingly lied and supported falsified research on the toxicity of the air after 9/11; thus putting people in danger.
The US government ordered the EPA to give the public misleading information (relived in 2003).
Memos written by US and local government officials show that they knew about the situation (toxicity of the air and the misleading of the public).
Memos show that Whitman (EPA administrator at the time) conspired with the White House to falsely reassure the NY public that the air was safe.

So, am I really that insane to think that the government is out to get me?
