In 2006, Louisiana National Guard troops took to the streets of New Orleans to stem rising crime in the area, which had begun to repopulate after Hurricane Katrina flooded more than 80 percent of the city in 2005.
In medicine under the germ theory of disease, vaccinations are supposed to provide immunity by introducing the disease to the body in small doses, allowing the body to build up its “germ-fighting” abilities. Of course, this is not so, as I pointed out last week.
But that theory is now being employed on Americans in another way that has nothing to do with medicine and everything to do with control. Americans are being “vaccinated” into acceptance of martial law and military rule.
Military vehicles from the U.S. Army Reserve patrolling the streets of Sheboygan County in Wisconsin that began Aug. 5 and will continue through Aug. 17 are part of a “training exercise,” according to Captain William Geddes of the 200th Military Police Command at Fort Mead, Md. But those soldiers have already “trained” in the use of the M117 Armored Security Vehicles in Afghanistan. So the training is more to train the American public.
Geddes said the U.S. Army Reserve wanted to alert to the public — but apparently not those in local government — ahead of the training so they wouldn’t be alarmed when a pack of heavily armored military vehicles is driving around.
Remember, there is nothing to see here. Just move along.
This is just the latest in a series of ongoing violations of the Posse Comitatus Act, which is supposed to prevent the military from engaging in domestic law enforcement activities. Recent “vaccinations” include:
- A joint drill between the U.S. Army and the Miami Police Department in May.
- Troops from the Minnesota National Guard, which had been deployed to Iraq, walking the streets of Crookston, Minn., in May. One soldier told a resident it was training. When asked what the training was for, the grunt replied, “To be honest ma’am, I don’t know.”
- Troops from the Bravo Company of the Minnesota National Guard’s Crookston Armory conducting “Urban Operations Training” with Humvees and 27 soldiers in February.
- In Homestead, Fla., the Air Force military police patrolmen from Homestead Air Reserve Base are responding to crimes and detaining criminals for local police.
- The National Guard assisting police with traffic control and providing “security” in Kingman, Ariz., in 2009.
- The Tennessee National Guard and Arnold Air force Base Police assisting the Tennessee Highway Patrol and U.S. Department of Homeland Security with a traffic checkpoint in 2009.
- The U.S. Army sending 22 military police and an officer from Fort Rucker to patrol the streets of Samson, Ala., following a shooting in 2009.
- The U.S. Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center working with the California Highway Patrol to “reduce accidents and drinking and driving” in San Bernardino County, Calif., in 2008.
- The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the U.S. trained to respond to domestic threats, according to The Washington Post.
- The battle-hardened 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team training in the United States to “help with civil unrest, crowd control or deal with potentially horrific scenarios” like a terrorist attack. These troops were to be the first of what would soon become a permanent operation, according to a 2008 report in the Army Times.
- In 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, police and Louisiana National Guard troops unlawfully confiscated legal weapons and forced residents from their homes.
Their frequency is increasing.
Similarly, local police departments are becoming increasingly militarized and the Department of Homeland Security is purchasing more and more military-grade weapons, ammunition andhardware.
