Pentagon preparing for mass civil breakdown
The Guardian ^ | July 12, 2014 | Nafeez Ahmed

Posted on 06/14/2014 9:37:06 AM PDT by Alyoshak

"Last year, the DoD's Minerva Initiative funded a project to determine 'Who Does Not Become a Terrorist, and Why?' which, however, conflates peaceful activists with "supporters of political violence" who are different from terrorists only in that they do not embark on "armed militancy" themselves."

The upshot is that even if you yourself are revolted by violence, or simply not inclined to it, you must still be profiled and categorized as politically violent, because you seem to share certain sympathies or cultural features with those who are violent.

In today’s climate al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood are the allies of this administration, and the citizens of the United States are it’s enemies.

Pentagon preparing for mass civil breakdown

All the ammo, all the small arms, all the left over vehicles from Afghanistan, all the other war supplies being sent to local police forces are for no purpose. Yup! I believe that...not!

Part of a whole along with the IRS asking the Tea Party for membership lists. They're making a list and will be checking it twice for when Obama declares State of National Emergency.

The paranoid side of my brain is thinking the use of military installations to house the tens of thousands of Mexican 'utes' is prepping for American internments.

Which helps to explain why the military is engaged in massive, homosexual, transgender and illegal alien recruiting drives. They’re looking for people who won’t mind taking out Americans. IMHO.

'Who Does Not Become a Terrorist'

Any one who bows down to the Globalists and their New World Order and does not care about their liberties, their prosperity, or their future.

One does not counter lawlessness using the law. And this administration is far more lawless than the citizens who have stood against it.

A tyrannical government will consider a non-violent political dissident as a potential threat, even to the point of merely questioning government motives or doctrine, would more than likely cause you to end up dead, or exiled to the gulag. This is how totalitarian governments operate. I wouldn't even call such a system a government, it would be more of a dictatorship, cartel, mafia racket, or oligarchy.

Another project awarded this year to the University of Washington "seeks to uncover the conditions under which political movements aimed at large-scale political and economic change originate," along with their "characteristics and consequences." The project, managed by the US Army Research Office, focuses on "large-scale movements involving more than 1,000 participants in enduring activity," and will cover 58 countries in total.

Finally a close look at "transforming America" and the PRO-GOVERNMENT EXTREMISTS. Right?

The mob violence including even muggings, knockout game, mob attacks, murders, beatings.. and no wonder look at the wicked hatred coming out of the White House, the Congress, the MSM, academia against those "who have too much" and how things should be more fair. How "they" stole "the people's" property.

Everyday whether it be "immigrant rights" or "civil rights" the pro-government extremists are incited to violence out of being a "victim."

The pro-government extremists cheered on by the White House, the Congress, the MSM, academia to get even gladly do the bidding of the Obama government, the MSM, academia . . . .

Without the military there is such a thing as vicarious liability. Did the violent PRO-GOVERNMENT EXTREMISTS hear inflammatory comments by public figures.. even Obama? Is it reasonable to think that those comments caused the violence? Then sue 'em all.

I take it that the Posse Comitatus Act is dead. Can Military forces now be used against civilians?

Up until 1956, Civilians had better firearms than the common Soldier.

Regardless of how one feels about `nation-building,’ over years of American blood and treasure invested in Iraq ... and now ISIS (al Qaeda of Iraq) is using arms and ordnance—supplied by Obama & Co. to Syria—to pull it all down.
ISIS was so vicious that Syrian al Qaeda booted them out. Now all along their road they’re beheading Iraqis we trained, and Obama does nothing.

With his abuse of expanded and unlimited EO’s, Obama has pretty much set his self himself up as dictator. His wanton use of it has made him drunk with power. Watch down the road where a national emergency allows him to suspend the 2016 elections. Likely will not happen, but right now I’d give it a 10-20% chance of taking place.

I agree. It’s why I wouldn’t blame the Iraqis for thinking they didn’t want to see us around again. Who would want to go on record as supporting us?

A nation under direct ISIS control, does not seem like something we should take lightly.

This sucks.

Having the Islamic poster child in the Oval Office is very dangerous right now.

ZERO anonymity.
They already know who you are and where to find you.
When TSHTF, the best thing would be not to sit and wait for them at the 'Bundy Ranch' or wherever, but go after the enemy in their homes. Just like they would do for you.

Agreed, but it’s a mistake to think that the elites of both parties haven’t been working toward the same goal for decades. There is a reason that the GOPe will wage all out war against conservatives but has nothing bad to say about their leftist opponents.

Correction: al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood are Obummer’s friends. Anyone who opposes his friends are his enemies, which turns out to be most of the American people.
Why do you think all of the Federal agencies have been given advanced weaponry? -to kill the opposition. That’s the way Hitler and Joseph Stalin worked.

What is the government going to do to cause this massive civil breakdown? It seems that they are gearing up for something. All the ammunition they are buying is for something. And the armored vehicles are for something. Makes you wonder what Obama has in mind.

Frankly, I’ve been skeptical of this kind of thing. Always sounded too much like “black helicopter” stuff. But this is the UK Guardian, no citadel of conservatism. It’s apparently true that the Pentagon is preparing for unrest, but the most alarming part for me was that we are going to be profiled (and thus monitored closely — that’s what the computer models are designed to enable) so that in the name of preventing civil unrest our means of communication (blog, twitter, smart phone) can be controlled. After all you are a known “supporter of political violence”. What more reason is needed? The degree to which they are pressuring academics, in the face of resistance by groups like the AAA, is appalling.

“Part of a whole along with the IRS asking the Tea Party for membership lists.”

Don’t forget their latest trick, trying to villify the Gadsden Flag by associating it with the Vegas police shootings and the Bundy Ranch protest. I’ll be easy to find because I proudly fly mine under a 13-star Betsy Ross flag from a very tall pole in my suburban front yard. Plus all the bumper stickers on my truck.

“The paranoid side of my brain is thinking the use of military installations to house the tens of thousands of Mexican ‘utes’ is prepping for American internments.”

How’s this for paranoid: most of those ‘utes’ are between 12 and 18 years old, which means they’ll all be voting soon. They are already being relocated to different cities around the country, and my guess is they’re going to be strategically deployed in swing districts to shore up the Democratic vote. The Dems are extremely good at micro-manipulating votes at the district level to win entire states.

As much as undercover cops try to get us to 'rebel' Americans are using tried and true ways. The ways that work.

We're going to vote democrats OUT OF OFFICE - then we're going to arrest - and take to court who engaged in illegal action against American citizens because of their political beliefs. Yes, Holder - that includes you... and some criminals in the IRS and FBI. And yeah, we're gonna win.
