(TCP)CHICAGO Opinion - Though the information is somewhat shocking, the time has come for this to be out in the open and clearly understood. Policy centers working in tandem with the United States government have been exercising the indoctrination of folks who consider law enforcement an industry with which they seek to contribute. These folks are merely guns for hire recruited amongst the population. The indoctrination process has convinced citizens working in these fields that government at all levels, from local to federal, is within its constitutional limits by assigning these tasks to police activity. In short, these policing citizens are being trained to enforce the rule of martial law, and they feel perfectly justified by participating.
In fact the real effect is that a government which is increasingly being called to task for overstepping its bounds by using totalitarian tactics of many hues has become nervous about its grip on power. They fear they are losing their legitimacy to conduct the business of being the holders of the peoples trust as the administrator of our laws. There are too many people who have come out of their societal slumber. The government fears the guns in their hands, something guaranteed by the 2nd amendment.
There are many people who are keenly aware that this government has been hijacked by folks who have different aims than what the founders intended to occur by using the amendment process of the constitution. This amendment process has contributed to establishing bureaucracies, who employ people indoctrinated to believe they are governing for the well being of the country. These bureaucracies in turn are regulatory bodies which contribute to the industry of government. Therefore the government of the country has grown to such enormous extent as having primarily a two-fold effect: 1. It has an insatiable desire to grow larger for its own sake, thereby needing an ever increasing supply of revenue to fund its operations, and 2. As the size of the government grows, less citizens of the populace are actually engaged in free enterprise, producing no useful product other than law enforcement or governance, and the effect on the free market becomes stifling and less productive of providing services or goods that create commerce amongst the populace.
The indoctrination of the policing citizens is now in full view for everyone to see. Elected officials cannot be trusted to mind the store of tax collection and government service expenditure without trampling on the rights of the private law abiding citizen, and the policing citizens have less mental acuity to understand scrutiny as to what is just and proper in the performance of their duties. The policing citizens are more about collecting a paycheck and guaranteed retirement benefits administered by public servant employee unions, and understanding less where the lines of the criminal element extends and from where. They can hardly think their paymasters in government are the criminals, when increasingly it is becoming very apparent they most assuredly are. Governance has become criminal in many ways.
The fact that bureaucracy obfuscates any direct intent by any one individual does not negate the activity and the effects on the populace at large. The election process has failed to produce the kind of public servant citizens mindful enough of correct governance in this republic to protect private property and the rights of private citizens under the United States Constitution. At one point a certain mild form of megalomania ensues amongst the public servant population at all levels of governance throughout American society.
The resultant governance products therefore are overbearing and wholly unjust. Increasingly they must exercise totalitarian force to keep hold of the reigns of power. There is much more to add to the discussion.

The time for denial is over

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers contains numerous clear references to the fact that the policies do apply domestically to U.S. citizens.
Despite the fact that the manual is well over 300 pages long and would take hours to read properly, within minutes of posting our story yesterday a minority of commenters were claiming that the policies outlined in the document only pertained to foreign combat operations and did not apply domestically to U.S. citizens.
This is similar to the denial witnessed prior to the passage of the NDAA when some argued that the indefinite detention provisions did not apply to American citizens despite numerous legal analysts asserting they did and President Barack Obama himself acknowledging they did when he signed the bill.
Click here to read the full document entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations.
The most alarming portion of the document appears on page 56 and makes it clear that detention camps will have PSYOP teams whose responsibility will be to use “indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes,” as well as targeting “political activists” with such indoctrination programs to provide “understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.”
Let’s make one thing clear – the manual primarily deals with enemy combatants captured and detained in foreign prison camps run by the U.S. Military. However, another thing that is just as clear from reading the manual in full is the fact that it also applies to citizens detained within the United States, whether they be DCs (displaced citizens) or “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”
Firstly, throughout the manual there are scores of references to how the U.S. Army would work together with the DHS, ICE and FEMA (page 24) to implement the policies “within U.S. territory” as part of “civil support operations” in the aftermath of “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.” (page 38).
“The handling of DCs (displaced citizens) is also a mission that may be performed in support of disaster relief or other emergencies within the United States or U.S. territories during civil support operations,” states page 33. Page 56 also states that it is the responsibility of the PSYOP officer to “control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.”
“Resettlement conducted as a part of civil support operations will always be conducted in support of another lead agency (Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security)” states page 37.
All these passages make it clear that the policies outlined on page 56 are also applicable within U.S. territory as part of “civil support operations” conducted in partnership with domestic federal agencies like the DHS and ICE. The U.S. Immigration authorities have no role in detaining prisoners in Afghanistan and Iraq and neither do other U.S. agencies also listed in the document such as the Public Health Service (page 224).
The document also contains numerous references to U.S. citizens (notably pages 13, 41). Page 13 notes how “U.S. citizens will be confined separately from detainees,” meaning they will be separated from foreign prisoners in the camps
On page 146 of the manual, we learn how prisoners in the camps are to be identified.
“The prisoner’s last name, first name, and middle initial are placed on the first line of a name board, and the prisoner’s social security number is placed on the second line.”
Last time I checked, the United States Social Security Administration was not responsible for handing out social security numbers to people in Afghanistan or Iraq.
On page 193 of the document, we learn that the policies outlined in the manual can be applied domestically. The language makes it clear that so long as the President passes an executive order to nullify Posse Comitatus, the law that forbids the military from engaging in domestic law enforcement, the policies “may be performed as domestic civil support operations.”
The manual states, “These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,” and adds that “The authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,” would require a “special exception” to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via “the President invoking his executive authority.”
These examples are just a handful of a plethora contained in the 326 page ‘Internment and Resettlement’ document which prove that the policies in the manual apply not only to foreign prisoners abroad, but also to American citizens within the United States.
On top of this, we have the 2009 story about how the National Guard posted a number of job listings looking for “Internment/Resettlement Specialists” to work in “civilian internee camps” within the United States.
The time for denial is over. People spent weeks arguing over the ‘indefinite detention’ provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act, ignoring assertions by top scholars and legal experts that the kidnapping provisions did apply to U.S. citizens.
It appears as though cognitive dissonance is causing some people to desperately search for any way of denying the shocking truth contained in these Army documents. This is particularly prevalent amongst Democrats and liberals, whose support for the cult of Barack Obama has blinded them to the fact that his administration is passing legislation which in many cases is far more draconian than anything Bush signed into law.
Take this comment for example from the Democratic Underground forum. Linking to our article from yesterday, a user writes, “A friend of mine just posted (as he usually does) a ridiculous article from InfoWars and it’s pissing me off to no end. I’m trying to find stuff to continuously disprove this drivel, and I’m probably wasting my time. Anyone able to help on this particular “story”?”
The individual does not even have the inclination to look at the source document to find out if the story is true, they would rather just throw out ad hominem insults like “ridiculous” and “drivel”. Rather than being “pissed off” at the frightening language contained in the U.S. Army manual, the individual is “pissed off” at Infowars for reporting on it.
Yes, the U.S. Army has really written a manual which details re-education camps. Yes, the manual does apply to U.S. citizens domestically. Denying these manifestly provable facts will not make the threat go away. This is not an imaginary monster under the bed.
The time for denial is over.
