VANITY POST: Facebook Traffic Surges With Martial Law Refs
facebook | 1/28/2013 | n/a

Posted on 01/28/2013 9:20:19 PM PST by SatinDoll

A relative called and told me that the number of references on Facebook concerning Martial Law just went up substantially.

The references are to Martial Law training for local LEs by Homeland Security, and the people making the comments are LEOs themselves. They're expressing concern.

I saw the article here on FR earlier today concerning a training activity last night over downtown Miami. This is not normal and seems to be part of the Feds efforts to solicit, I believe, a negative response from a specific sector of the general public.

There is a lot of political activity going on right now - threats to confiscate guns, eliminate the arrest powers of Sherrifs, so-called Immigration Reform, psy-ops online petitions to assasinate Sarah Palin (which I believe is generated by the White House) - Obama is tossing a lot of stuff out there in an attempt to gin up responses, not to mention coordinated local LEO and Fed police training which may or may not be material.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Government; Politics; Society
KEYWORDS: facebook; facebookisthedevil; martiallaw; sherrifs; trainingexercises
I'm posting this because it seems pertinent to what is going on right now.

He is antagonzing Patriots and we mustn't rise to the bait.

It is appalling how many people out there among the general public are ignorant of these events, as the MSM doesn't draw attention to them.

Being a malevolent narcissist, he will overstep the boundary and it will be his undoing.

Pay attention everyone.

It must be tempting because Congress has all but abdicated its traditional role as a co equal power - the Senate is just a mouthpiece and rubber stamp.

It feels to us like a NWO “Great Push” to some finish line.

I agree about the agitating and antagonizing - that’s what community organizers do.

I am not sure I agree at all.

I’m not sure but I think that we have gone passed a civil discord.

My fear is that someone will shoot at a helicopter and bring it down, killing most aboard.

I’m told by someone in the know that the local police have been informed; but are they letting the public know it is only training?

From Common Sense II

The future of this great nation is imperiled as it has not been since the revolutionary war. Slowly, ever so slowly, our freedoms have evaporated into the air of a slow motion tyranny. As Americans this was the only way to conquer us—so slowly that most of us accepted a “small” encroachment here and a “small” encroachment there, as necessary to satisfy the ever increasing hunger of the statist.

““Do you really think we want those laws observed?” Said Dr. Ferris. We want them broken. You better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against - then you’ll know this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that’s the system Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Chapter 3, Page 404

If they think Afghanistan was a no-win....

CWII is a non-starter.

They better plan on killing 25-30 million. Ramp up the numbers from 1865, and I’d bet I’m close.

Yes my friend we can.

They have played their hand a little too soon. There are still too many patriots left.

I believe they will realize this and back away—for now. But the end will be the same. They will keep on until any red blooded American will rebel.

Why?

I really don’t know. I can’t imagine any American wanting what the liberals want.

But with the media with them they think they have the game won.

Wrong.

It’s just half time. And we are getting our second wind

We still have the right to protest and assemble. We have the right to be antagonised, but we need to excercise it peacefully. We need to turn the debate around from how many rights we are allowed to have, to how much power they should have over us.

Another freeper brought up a very good point; namely, why would Obama or any other DC insider (read liberal) mess with big cities? Those are solid liberal play grounds. Could this be the Military firing off proverbial shots across Obama's bow?

While many defenders of Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers have sought to minimize his bomb attacks on the U.S. Capitol and other landmarks because they purportedly did not target people, a former FBI informant who penetrated the group claimed he witnessed a meeting in which members discussed a future communist takeover of America in which some 25 million “diehard capitalists” would need to be killed.

Larry Grathwohl recalled his experience in the 1982 documentary “No Place to Hide,” noted the weblog Confederate Yankee.

Sorry I love my Beer and any Beer from Anheuser-Busch just happens to be the best beer available in my neck o the woods.

Folks have tried to move me to Miller, Lonestar (not bad) and other cheap suds but Natural Lite and Busch are the daily fare.

I like some of the small brewery stuff but it’s bottle to bottle... one bottle may be fantastic and the next is a spew fest and they are proud of it either way.

As for the rest of the companies ... no problem

TT

(funny... I’m drinking a Miller Lite while posting this ... my buddies leave the leftovers in my ice chest on their way out... after the first 3 they all taste the same)

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

I really don’t know. I can’t imagine any American wanting what the liberals want.

The liberals have so dumbed down and engaged the "feelings" of their voting base that the issues are no longer at issue with them. No one gives serious consideration to the effects the proposals will have, instead, blinded by mindless hatred, they are "in it to win" without even being conscious of the effect their "winning" will have on everyone, not just their "enemy". Because they routinely deny responsibility for their own actions, they will rarely, if ever, make the connection between their actions and any ill results, and will blame someone else.

We have seen the increasing harshness of their tone, the pursuit of their goals has become a "battle", they fight against their opponents whom they claim wage "war" on targeted demographic groups, and their entire PSYOP is succeeding.

Therein lies the most grave danger of all, that the mindless followers may some day take up arms to fight to suppress our God-given Rights so they can "win".

My opinion of these events is that they are trying to ramp up the debate, to get conservatives to be more shrill in their frustration, so they can blame the next false flag operation on the Right, just like the Oklahoma City Bombing was blamed on the Right.

(It was likely the actions of an Muslim-involved/influenced nutcase at best and a false flag op/sting gone wrong at worst. Remember the FBI informant was the one who showed the bombers how to mix the explosive for the WTC bombing, and the OK City bombing may have been another one that got away--although the timing was perfect to defuse the Waco investigation--and the worst possible sort of event for the Right.)

We must ever be more careful, no matter how frustrated events make us, to be rational in action and discourse. Do not give them the quotes they want to parade on the TV to make us look bad.

For contingency planners, quietly make your plans, get together with some friends, whatever, but behave legally. Exercise caution in your relationships thus: Usually the guy in the room howling loudest to "burn it down" or "blow it up" is an informant or undercover.

The second anyone they can blame from the Right does anything wrong, they will use it as justification for the pogroms to start. If we ever reach that point, do what you must (that, after all, is what contingency plans are for), but preferably we will not get that far.

That could go either way, depending on the department. Big City Departments, I don't know, smaller towns and rural Sheriff's departments might be stocking up for a different reason. The politics vary.

A lot would depend on the type of equipment and supplies, but at some point I would think that they anticipate civil unrest.

They make things that outfit police cars. My husband has noticed some of their weapons have changed. I read an article a few weeks ago that police departments around the nation are being lavished with federal money.
