The Federal Government deems gun owners, veterans, constitutionalists, christians, and pretty much anyone who loves freedom as "dangerous" and "potential domestic terrorists". http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/16/napolitano-stands-rightwing-extremism/?page=all There's been an escalation in the militarization of police forces, government agencies (controlled by the Executive branch) stockpiling ammunition and supplies. Police brutality is on the rise. And now, the largest public military exercise EVER (Jade Helm 15) is taking place. Military and police training to combat civil disobedience.
The 8 week "exercise" is that they are declaring Texas and Utah as "hostile states" and are going to take them back militarily, with covert operations and intelligence gathering (i.e. SPYING on citizens and encouraging 1984 like behavior). Nine states are participating.
Not only are they using Special Operational Forces, but they are also using JPRA (Joint Personnel Recovery Agency). JPRA maintains a series of schools who's specialties include: Prisoners of War, hostages and DETAINEES (emphasis added), evasion and escape, search and rescue, prison survival techniques, geography and cartography, natural science, ethnology and country studies, terrorism, military and naval science, natural and emergency medicine.
To the average person, the use of the term "detainee" would not raise an eyebrow, but to someone who is in tune with the connotations and denotations of military parlance, the term "detainee" holds a very specific meaning, to include incarceration of political prisoners (e.g. dissenters aka enemy combatants aka terrorists aka anyone the STATE points a finger at) with no due process.
Bottom line is the US military is being run through a HUGE game scenario where the battle is on US soil and the "enemy" is US...
Does this make anyone else a wee bit uncomfortable?
