Napolitano’s V.I.P.R. Vows to “Dominate,Intimidate and Control”the American People

Napolitano’s V.I.P.R. Vows to “Dominate,Intimidate and Control”the American People BY COACH COLLINS,ON JULY 15TH,2011

By Doug Book,staff writer

Since its inception in 2002,the Department of Homeland Security has grown increasingly contemptuous of the rights of the American people. Indeed,the Gestapo-like tactics of one of the Department’s better known masters of overreach–the TSA–are responsible for countless examples of the organizations daily assault on the Constitution.

But recently,another of Janet Napolitano’s handmaidens of harassment has begun to make news…albeit only on the web,of course. It is the TSA’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response task force–or VIPR. Organized into mobile swat teams,VIPR has executed some 8,000 highly public searches in the past 12 months.

And what meaningful operations they have been.

In a Georgia Amtrac station,VIPR personnel “patted down”all travelers,children and adults,both entering AND LEAVING the station.

In Santa Fe,New Mexico,teams of VIPR agents were assigned to conduct searches at a high school prom.

In Texas,agents thoroughly “…searched all private and commercial vehicles entering and exiting…”the port of Brownsville. EACH AND EVERY VEHICLE was searched even though the task force was not responding to any known or reported threat!

In April,VIPR staged a raid at a Tampa bus station. Once again,the teams were not responding to any particular threat. Rather,Homeland Security official Gary Milano said the purpose of the exercise was to “…invent the wheel in advance,in case we have to,if there is ever specific intelligence requiring us to be here.”

And two months later,VIPR targeted 5,000 square miles bordering West Virginia,Ohio and Kentucky. Four hundred agents representing 70 federal agencies appeared in Black Hawk helicopters,small planes and Coast Guard craft. Once again this was a “training exercise.”As usual,no threat had been suspected or reported. TSA official Michael Cleveland stated,“…the purpose of the exercise was to have a visible presence and let people know we’re out here. IT CAN BE A DETERRENT.”

But who is being deterred,intimidated and threatened by these unnecessary shows of force- certainly not terrorists.

“Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary government…Among deprivations of rights,none is so effective in cowing a population,crushing the spirit of the individual and putting terror in every heart”,said Justice Robert Jackson,the chief US prosecutor at Nuremberg.

The American people are being systematically subjected to,and desensitized to,warrantless searches and the most egregious and unnecessary forms of personal humiliation by an organization whose raison d’etre is inscribed at the TSA Air Marshall Training Center:DOMINATE,INTIMIDATE,CONTROL. And the more often this is done,the more “reasonable”it will seem. Routine? Acceptable? Like 10% unemployment,government harassment will become the “new norm.”After all,it is for our own good!

One has to wonder if Barack Obama isn’t grateful to Muslim terrorists for the 9/11 attacks. After all,without those 3,000 murders,how could a would-be dictator justify the Constitutional abuse to which he is subjecting millions of American citizens? Makes it easier somehow to understand his bow to the King of Saudi Arabia,doesn’t it!

There is an article on the exercise stage last year in Ohio and WVA by TSA. I will try to find it. This is a great way to circumvent posse comitatus. I am not a foil hat but I know that what security bureaucracies train to do they plan to do.

Here is the article from the Charleston Gazette:

June 16, 2010 TSA exercise joins Ohio, W.Va. responders

Lawrence Pierce

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Chris Niles (left) and coxswain Barry Cliborn ease their 25-foot response boat into the main channel of the Ohio River from the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam at Gallipolis Ferry during Wednesday’s TSA exercise.

By Rick Steelhammer GALLIPOLIS FERRY, W.Va. — More than 300 law enforcement and military personnel swept through a 100-mile stretch of the Ohio Valley on Wednesday, familiarizing themselves with the area’s industrial infrastructure and learning how other agencies respond to emergencies.
The Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) exercise involved brief visual inspections of power and chemical plants, rail and riverboat terminals, lock and dam complexes and natural gas pipelines from New Haven in Mason County to Russell, Ky. The Kanawha River from Point Pleasant to the John Amos power plant near St. Albans also was covered.

VIPR team members used helicopters, emergency vehicles, reconnaissance aircraft, Coast Guard patrol boats and watercraft from the Divisions of Natural Resources in West Virginia and Ohio to conduct the exercise.
Mobile command centers from the Transportation Security Administration, the West Virginia Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Ohio Highway Patrol were set up at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam complex at Gallipolis Ferry to coordinate communications and collect data from the field.

“This is my biggest VIPR ever,” said Michael Cleveland, federal security director for TSA operations in West Virginia. “Today we’re pulling in people and resources from both Ohio and West Virginia, and borrowing federal air marshals from Pittsburgh. We wanted to get as many key players together as possible to have a visible presence and let people know we’re out here. It can be a deterrent.”

TSA security officers are stationed at all West Virginia airports with commercial service, while TSA inspectors check cargo at airports and other transportation facilities. A total of 124 TSA employees are stationed in West Virginia.

Smaller-scale VIPR exercises are held at Yeager Airport and other transportation facilities on numerous occasions throughout the year.
“If you’re looking at domestic planning for terrorist issues, you have to look at the Ohio Valley,
with its coal and its chemical and power plants and other resources,” said Lt. Dick Grau of the Ohio Highway Patrol. “There are 53 agencies out here today, learning how they can pool their resources and share information and communications.”

Grau said the Ohio and West Virginia mobile command centers were successfully merging their communication and data gathering operations on Wednesday.
“The networking of people in all the different agencies is probably as important as anything that’s happening here today,” Grau said. “Knowing what each of us brings to the table, and being able to match names with faces is invaluable.”

In addition to using three helicopters for aerial inspection, the exercise made use of the Ohio Highway Patrol’s camera-equipped Cessna Caravan, which is capable of transmitting close-up, detailed real-time images of objects on the ground taken from more than five miles away.
Color and thermal images of power plants and other key infrastructure items were beamed back to the command center at Gallipolis Ferry from more than 15 miles away.

A 25-foot response boat from the Barboursville Coast Guard station piloted by coxswain Barry Cliborn was among watercraft taking part in the exercise.
“We have three of these in the Port of Huntington, which covers about 430 miles of river from Portsmouth to Marietta,” he said. “When we patrol, we do everything from checking boater safety and reporting visible pollution to making sure the power plants and fuel depots are secure.”
The aluminum patrol boats, powered by twin 25-horsepower outboards, carry a crew of three and can reach speeds of more than 50 miles per hour.
Although a desktop exercise involving a response to runaway barges on the Ohio River was held during a morning session at Wednesday’s VIPR event, the drill involved no accident or attack scenario.

“Getting all the different people in the two states together to make contacts and connections was a big part of this VIPR,” said James Fotenos, a public affairs manager for TSA.

Agencies taking part in the exercise included the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Federal Air Marshal Service, FBI, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Ohio Highway Patrol, West Virginia State Police, Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio Emergency Management Agency, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Columbus Fire Division’s bomb squad, Columbus Regional Airport Authority Public Safety Department canine teams, Ohio National Guard, West Virginia National Guard, West Virginia Division of Transportation, and West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

Several nongovernment entities also took part in the exercise, including American Electric Power, Marathon Petroleum, CSX railroad police, Norfolk Southern railroad police, El Paso Pipeline, Duke Energy and Sunoco.

Americans have no intention of delivering themselves from the Gestapo, by giving up their plane flights. After all it would cause an economic quake that would oust the Gestapo along with their president and all of his serpent heads throughout his administration and the heavy handed czars who bypass both the Constitution and Congress. It’s just too hard. A boycott is out of the question for even a day. Our fathers and theirs were suppose to do all that hard stuff. It’s just too hard. s/

Unfortunately the VIPR organization seems to be wannabe SS. The SS VF and the TKVB conducted exercises such as the one the Charleston Gazette describes. However even in Naziland they had to ask the Wehrmacht for permission to use one of their training areas. The NSDAP was more interested in showing a ‘friendly face’ to non-Jewish Germans than the TSA/DHS is towards US citizens. This sort of exercise is more like the ones the MGB ran in satellite countries during the Stalin years with the police and puppet armed forces and the Red Army and MGB armed units putting on a display to appropriately intimidate the newly enslaved populations. That gives on pause.

I watched half an episode of that show. Two of the main characters were on the road in their squad car, and somehow managed to work “global warming deniers” and their “brainwashing” into the conversation. It had nothing to do with the plot. That was enough for me.

I didn’t see that episode, but I could only take about five minutes of the drooling, paramilitary thugs, and the channel went off. (Off topic but even my favorite soap, after all these years of being as “normal” as a soap can be, had to stick in their homo agenda the other day. No more of that one...)

Readin the article, I couldn't help but think of a movie about Ann Frank that I saw in the 1950's. A 2 1/2 ton truck pulled up in front of the building she was hiding in and unloaded a platoon of SS in the NCO / EM overcoats like those in your illustration. It has stuck with me to this day.

There is one episode, an absolutely unbelievable one (unbelievable that they would make it), in which 4 teenage girls get in a fight in a mall and one of the girls has a gun and another of the girls gets shot.

The swat team comes into the mall, gets on the PA system and tells everyone in the mall to line up in the hallways, on their knees, with their hands clamped behind their heads so the swat team “can do our jobs safely”.

I kid you not. The turd-brain writers and directors of this turd-ertainment actually thought they had a good story there!!!!!

And of course, in the story, all the turd-brain sheep comply.

I was watching some “TruLife” show about Hermosa Beach earlier today. Some drunk guy fell off the roof and the paramedics were trying to get to him. The jackboots were shoving his friends to the sidewalk, beating them, arresting them, and intimidating them — all because they wanted to check on their friend.

It didn’t look to me like they weren’t giving the paramedics room, but like the jackboots just wanted to show who’s in charge. An old-fashioned bullhorn wouldn’t have worked???

Expand Posse Comitatus to include ALL armed federal law enforcement personnel, and define WHERE each may go.

The individual states may then choose to either search or not search everywhere else.

Wikipedia: The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits members of the Army and Air Force from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order” on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.

(BTW - I heard an interesting theory that the States’ National Guard troops are deliberately being kept out of the country, FAR AWAY, under the President’s control, deliberately in order to ensure that no states can resist the federal government when TSHTF.)

“Expand Posse Comitatus ...”

Good luck with that in a Congress determined to increase Federal powers in the name of fighting terror.

Look. We have 2 threats to our freedom. One is immediate, the other is long term. Neither has to do with terrorism.

Obama is the immediate threat. Congress is deadlocked, leaving Obama with little to stop his Marxist aims. But if we lock the Federal purse (debt ceiling) until Jan. 2013, Obama will have no money to further his goals & get reelected.

The second threat is Congress. They keep passing laws that flaunt the Constitution & steal our money & freedoms. That problem will be solved in Nov. 2012 when the TEA Party & Conservatives assume the majority in the House & Senate. The ruling class will be neutered at that point.

Until then, the less the current Congress & Obama get done, the better off this country will be. We are being led by thieves, liars, cheats, & perverts. These people are unwilling & incapable of doing what is right for America. I'd rather they do nothing for 16 more months than continue to ruin this country. Cutting off the money NOW is the surest way to do that, & it is the surest way of denying Obama a second term.

I predict this, & you can hold me to it: If the debt ceiling is increased to cover spending until the 2012 election, not only will Obama be reelected, but Reid, Pelosi, McConnell, & Boehner will retain their leadership positions, & the spending will continue until the USA is in unavoidable default, sometime before 2017. I guarantee it!

My, what an interesting acronym for a government agency. Sounds so ... threatening, so badassed.

VIPR. Viper.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about governmental agency acronyms that spell words, it’s to be very wary.

Who’s going to round up this bunch when they exceed their authority? You know it’s inevitable. Arguably, they already have, right out of the gate.

Last year, we were staying at a hotel in Gettysburg (a 90-min. drive from DC) during the off-season where the VIPR was having an extensive meeting and VIPR personnel filled the hotel. Folks, I had never heard of this agency. You would not believe the gorgeous fleets of brand-new SUVs and pick-ups these government employees drive. They filled the parking lot. There was not a smile on the faces of any of these men (mostly-very few women) even though I have a bunch of cute little kids who were awed by their uniforms and equipment. It was SCARY to me, very chilling.
