Turning America into a Battlefield: A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

By John Whitehead. Constitutional and civil rights attorney, and founder of the Rutherford Institute.

 

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

A standing army—something that propelled the early colonists into revolution—strips the American people of any vestige of freedom. How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force. Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: the U.S. Constitution.

Unfortunately, with the Constitution under constant attack, the military’s power, influence and authority have grown dramatically. Even the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which makes it a crime for the government to use the military to carry out arrests, searches, seizure of evidence and other activities normally handled by a civilian police force, has been weakened by both Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who ushered in exemptions allowing troops to deploy domestically and arrest civilians in the wake of alleged terrorist acts.

Now we find ourselves struggling to retain some semblance of freedom in the face of police and law enforcement agencies that look and act like the military and have just as little regard for the Fourth Amendment, laws such as the NDAA that allow the military to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens, and military drills that acclimate the American people to the sight of armored tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, and combat aircraft patrolling overhead.

Making matters worse, we find out that the military plans to use southwestern states as staging grounds for guerilla warfare drills in which highly-trained military troops equipped with all manner of weapons turn American towns and cities in quasi-battlefields. Why? As they tell us, it’s so that special operations forces can get “realistic military training” in “hostile” territory.

They’ve even got a name for the exercise: Jade Helm 15.

Whether or not Americans have anything to fear from Jade Helm 15, a covert, multi-agency, multi-state, eight-week military training exercise set to take place this summer from July 15 through Sept. 15, remains to be seen.

Insisting that there’s nothing to be alarmed about, the Washington Post took great pains to point out that these military exercises on American soil are nothing new. For instance, there was Operation Bold Alligator, in which in which thousands of Marines and sailors carried out amphibious exercises against “insurgent” forces in Georgia and Florida. Operation Robin Sage had Green Beret soldiers engaging in guerrilla warfare in North Carolina. And Operation Derna Bridge sends Marine special forces into parts of South Carolina and the National Forest.

Yet if Americans are uneasy about this summer’s planned Jade Helm 15 military exercises, they have every right to be.

After all, haven’t we been urged time and time again to just “trust” the government to respect our rights and abide by the rule of law only to find that, in fact, our rights were being plundered and the Constitution disregarded at every turn?

Let’s assume, for the moment, that Jade Helm 15 is not a thinly veiled military plot to take over the country lifted straight out of director John Frankenheimer’s 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May, as some fear, but is merely a “routine” exercise for troops, albeit a blatantly intimidating flexing of the military’s muscles.

The problem arises when you start to add Jade Helm onto the list of other troubling developments that have taken place over the past 30 years or more: the expansion of the military industrial complex and its influence in Washington DC, the rampant surveillance, the corporate-funded elections and revolving door between lobbyists and elected officials, the militarized police, the loss of our freedoms, the injustice of the courts, the privatized prisons, the school lockdowns, the roadside strip searches, the military drills on domestic soil, the fusion centers and the simultaneous fusing of every branch of law enforcement (federal, state and local), the stockpiling of ammunition by various government agencies, the active shooter drills that are indistinguishable from actual crises, the economy flirting with near collapse, etc.

Suddenly, the overall picture seems that much more sinister. Clearly, as I point out in my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, there’s a larger agenda at work here.

Seven years ago, the U.S. Army War College issued a report calling on the military to be prepared should they need to put down civil unrest within the country. Summarizing the report, investigative journalist Chris Hedges declared, “The military must be prepared, the document warned, for a ‘violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,’ which could be provoked by ‘unforeseen economic collapse,’ ‘purposeful domestic resistance,’ ‘pervasive public health emergencies’ or ‘loss of functioning political and legal order.’ The ‘widespread civil violence,’ the document said, ‘would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.’”

At what point will all of the government’s carefully drawn plans for dealing with civil unrest, “homegrown” terrorism and targeting pre-crime become a unified blueprint for locking down the nation?

For instance, what’s the rationale behind turning government agencies into military outposts? There has been a notable buildup in recent years of SWAT teams within non-security-related federal agencies such as Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department. As of 2008, “73 federal law enforcement agencies… [employ] approximately 120,000 armed full-time on-duty officers with arrest authority.” Four-fifths of those officers are under the command of either the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or the Department of Justice.

What’s with all of the government agencies stockpiling hollow point bullets? For example, why does the Department of Agriculture need .40 caliber semiautomatic submachine guns and 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? For that matter, why do its agents need ballistic vests and body armor?

Why does the Postal Service need “assorted small arms ammunition”? Why did the DHS purchase “1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition, along with 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO ‘personal defense weapons’ plus a huge stash of 30-round high-capacity magazines”? That’s in addition to the FBI’s request for 100 million hollow-point rounds. The Department of Education, IRS, the Social Security Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which oversees the National Weather Service, are also among the federal agencies which have taken to purchasing ammunition and weaponry in bulk.

Why is the federal government distributing obscene amounts of military equipment, weapons and ammunition to police departments around the country? And why is DHS acquiring more than 2,500 Mine-Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles, only to pass them around to local police departments across the country? According to the New York Times:

[A]s President Obama ushers in the end of what he called America’s “long season of war,” the former tools of combat — M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more — are ending up in local police departments, often with little public notice. During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft. The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units.

Why is the military partnering with local police to conduct training drills around the country? And what exactly are they training for? In Richland, South Carolina, for instance, U.S. army special forces participated in joint and secretive exercises and training with local deputies. The public was disallowed from obtaining any information about the purpose of the drills, other than being told that they might be loud and to not be alarmed. The Army and DHS also carried out similar drills and maneuvers involving Black Hawk helicopters in Texas, Florida, and other locations throughout the U.S., ostensibly in order to provide local police with “realistic” urban training.

What is being done to protect the American populace from the threat of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, being used against them? Policy analysts point to Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities” (issued on Dec. 29, 2010), as justification for the government’s use of military force to put down civil unrest within the United States.

Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies? On January 10, 2014, FEMA made a statement enlisting the service of contractors who could “supply medical biohazard disposal capabilities and 40 yard dumpsters to 1,000 tent hospitals across the United States; all required on 24-48 hour notice.” This coincides with other medical requests seeking massive amounts of supplies, such as “31,000,000 flu vaccinations,” “100,000 each of winter shirts and pants and the same for summer” and other goods and services requests as well like tarps, manufactured housing units, and beverages. And why does the TSA need $21,000 worth of potassium chlorate, a chemical compound often used in explosives?

Why is the Pentagon continuing to purchase mass amounts of ammunition while at the same time preparing to destroy more than $1 billion worth of bullets and missiles that are still viable?

Moreover, what is really being done to hold the Pentagon accountable for its doctored ledgers, fraud, waste and mismanagement, which has cost the taxpayer trillions of dollars? According to Reuters, “The Pentagon is the only federal agency that has not complied with a law that requires annual audits of all government departments. That means that the $8.5 trillion in taxpayer money doled out by Congress to the Pentagon since 1996, the first year it was supposed to be audited, has never been accounted for. That sum exceeds the value of China’s economic output.”

Given the similarities between the government’s Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis, how much of what is being passed off as real is, in fact, being staged by DHS for the “benefit” of training law enforcement, leaving us none the wiser? These training exercises come complete with their own set of professionally trained Crisis Actors playing the parts of shooters, bystanders and victims in order to help schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.

Given that Americans are 110 times more likely to die of foodborne illness than in a terrorist attack, why is the government spending trillions of dollars on “national security”? How exactly is the $75 billion given to various intelligence agencies annually to keep us “safe” being spent? And why is the DHS giving away millions of dollars’ worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have “no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat”?

Why is the government amassing names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation, and what criteria is the government using for this database? Keep in mind that this personal information is being acquired and kept without warrant or court order. It’s been suggested that in the event of nuclear war, the destruction of the U.S. Government, and the declaration of martial law, this Main Core database, which as of 2008 contained some 8 million names of Americans, would be used by military officials to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security, a program to be carried about by the Army and FEMA.

Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. But put them together and they add up to the kind of trouble that the American founding fathers not only warned against but from which they fought to free themselves.

Indeed, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is no longer answerable to “we the people.”

  • APRIL 28, 2015 The Real War on the Middle Class

    Ron Paul One of the great ironies of American politics is that most politicians who talk about helping the middle class support policies that, by expanding the welfare-warfare state, are harmful to middle-class Americans. Eliminating the welfare-warfare state would benefit middle-class Americans by freeing them from exorbitant federal taxes, including the Federal Reserve’s inflation tax.

    Dear Mr. John Whitehead, 4/29/2015

    As I have not yet received a return call from your Office, I expect this is a reminder and a , try, try again effort from me.

    Please (and importantly) read my 2007 POGO ‘Republican Committee Calls on Whistleblowers, blog comment replies and importantly from the bottom up.

    Please note and as your Article and your 2 Nobel ‘Freedom Awards’ suggest a ‘We the People’ to continue with there expected efforts. I have and for 50 years or so, tried and filed the only and expected options available, and as I expect you well know, 1) US Legislatures, US Federal US Justice 2) Criminal Department Filing, 3) US Federal Civil Court filing, 4) The rare few who have the vested ‘Whistleblower’ filing. I have and at least once done all 4 and I also been fortunate have been supported, known and/or possibly related to the highest of Prominent, Influential and Respected people, (most all now deceased).

    Hopefully you will review and/or again review so we may discuss for follow-up and/or additional filings and with the team I partially mentioned in my original telephone call to Ms. Williams at your Office, earlier this month.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Axel

    This may not be the exact Article from my brief and just now too briefly reading of the Article. I noticed the Article did mention and/or reference the ‘…..end of Humanity…..’ and as that is an highly and most important and overwhelming of and within concern(s) and direction(s), thereof, I have therefore attached this GR, Global Research Article.

    GR has an easily and by Author Search Index.

    Thank you for your time and consideration within your attention and to these concerns.

    Dear Mr. John Whitehead, 4/23/2015

    Too Briefly in this reply, and from my call to your after hours answering machine and as California has apparently taken the wrong actions on these Issues,

    1) I have attached this brief comment from my, ‘Republican Committee Calls on Whistleblowers’ comments of 2007. {To avoid any misunderstanding, my recent previous June 3, 2007 above reply is also in reference to my previous replies on this page and without exception and most importantly in direct reference to the US enactment of the US death penalty which is a preposterous application(s) and assumption(s) and violates all Religious, Constitutional and Democratic Law.}

    Please note that this issue and from my summation is not a public voting type issue and is a clear and unmistakable, Representative ‘Public Trust’ mandate and concern.

    2) INS Law 247 prohibits ‘Illegal Aliens’ and harboring thereof. There is a major concern as it is also a highly significant, Representative ‘Public Trust’ issue and concern. (example; In new York, and a decade ago or more ago, an INS Officer was terminated, removed, convicted and jailed from my vague recollection as his Fiancé!! had overstayed her School Visa by a day or so).

    I mention the above as I consider Governor Jerry Brown and now Code Pink, Ms. Jodie Evans, my friends.

    I am humbly asking and offering my humble assistance, should you be able to have and/or provide any influence and/or assistance and/or advice on my and/or our behalf.

    This is my effort to comply with your Article, your accomplishments and within my brief knowledge of the Rutherford Institute and to offer worthwhile suggestion(s), resolve(s), etcetera within proper, forthright and mandated US Constitutional, Bill of Rights, Gettysburg Address, efforts and endeavors.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Axel

      As you may well surmise or well now, there is no such thing a one, ‘World Order’ and no such thing a Democracy one world order.

      I have attached a 4 additional recent GlobalResearch Articles that should be helpful and of assistance where correct and relevant and within reasonably expected Democracy.

      Importantly and please additionally note (and/or recall) my efforts and endeavors are based that these prominent ‘Whistleblower’ Organizations and people of GAP, NWC, POGO, et all are not in fact (factual) support, supportive, part of, directly and/or indirectly, hoodwinking, subversion or otherwise within the and their alleged ‘Venomous’ and wrongful attacks upon ‘Whistleblowers’ from this and past US Presidents and within their USA Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches of our, ‘We the People’ USA Government.

          This reply was intended only to be place posted to this rely comment, and with the attached two Wikipedia links.

          Please, you clearly have expressed the ability and knowledge to the expected and required reasonable manners and communications and as you pointedly acknowledged a ‘thank you’ in a previous recent reply to another Individual that comments abundantly and frequently on this website. (If you continue with this type of unnecessary and/or ridiculous Individual berating, it is not necessary for your direct replies or comments towards me or my attention).

          I have attached the historical Wikipedia Freedom and Peace Prize Awards. From my recollection, many on this and other websites and media disagree with the recent recipients of Obama, Clinton, McCain, Kissinger, Albright, Gore, Annan, United Nations, International Atomic Energy Agency and I presume many others and Entities.

          [Apparently the Wikipedia Articles will not attaché. In Google search, type ‘Nobel Freedom Award’ and then scroll to the Wikipedia.org link and view the Historical Award recipients. The same procedure for the ‘Nobel Peace Award’.

          My expectations and within the Gettysburg Address are to more readily available and of mandated avenues of US Constitutionally and Bill of Rights required and mandated ‘Oversight and Accountability’ and to any remaining aspects towards peace and democracy and to uphold any good and/or intent thereof within these Awards, Entities, Agencies and people………………… and to keep clear and not support and hopefully negate patricidal, genocidal and Judas type policies, practices, procedures and/or avenues thereof.

          It clearly appears that the choice to live in peace and harmony is preferred, by and from all expectantly reasonable Nations, Entities, Agencies and People and would be confirmed by a reasonable person.

          Hopefully you will consider a more peaceful way to express frustrations, exasperations and/or concerns.

          Thank you for your efforts here as I expect they may also be an effort to provoke or incite a additional reply and/or reaction form me.

    Those who may try to challenge the Sovereign -the Federal Government and NOT “We the People” as wrongly portrayed by some advocate groups and individuals- should consider the following facts:

    – In legal terms the United States of America is currently in a State of War: Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) — http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-107publ40/pdf/PLAW-107publ40.pdf

    – During times of war, the Executive Branch is granted extraordinary powers to govern by decree if necessary; therefore, constitutional rights can be suspended at any given time and without notice if the Sovereign deems imperative.

    – During times of war, any form of dissent can be associated to Sedition and the subsequent ground(s) for Insurrection; thus individuals who advocate seditious activities will be tried under the Military Tribunal system. Read the contents of the U.S. Code: Title 50 – WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE, placing emphasis on CHAPTER 13—INSURRECTION (§§ 201 to 204–226) — https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/50/chapter-13

    Ordinary Americans do not have a single clue of what Martial Law is all about, and some of them (specially those who worship the US Constitution to jingoistic levels) may foolishly perish while trying to challenge the Sovereign.

          Both these comments where posted to your comment in reply to my comment, not here. W’sblog system may have not worked properly.

          Also and expected to be assumed, there may be many of the same people with different log-names and that create their own communications and/or arguments and/or provocations, distortions and/or worse yet subversions, etcetera.

          My previous reply to my reply had these attachments and that acknowledged as posted although did not appear anywhere and when the Article was re-opened.

            Apparently in this Article, Washington’sblog will accepts condone, authorize, approve etcetera only your words and that are approved, accepted and allowed to be spoken in and within your direct comments to me and mine are silenced, (pending approval) and well after a timely aspect as your words and comments upon me continue and un-abated.
            Hopefully my hours ago necessary reply comment will soon be posted and allowed as I will re-post a 7th time, if necessary and available if allowed from W’sblog (so-called, as is now concerning) pending review.

    The US overnment has gone rogue. Congress,the executive branch, and the judiciary are the national security threat.

    Nullify, nullify, nullify and stand behind your state governors and Constitutions.

  • APRIL 29, 2015 Amicus Brief Argues Military Internet Surveillance of Civilians Must Be Excluded From Criminal Trials

    For years, with seemingly little to no oversight, the Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS) has been monitoring vast amounts of non-military U.S. Internet traffic and communications, looking for evidence of criminal activity. Last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit correctly held this “extraordinary” and illegal surveillance violated the Posse Comitatus Act (“PCA”) and suppressed evidence gathered by NCIS on a civilian.

  • Yep, that whole Left and Right faux propaganda as well. Everyone in D.C. and I say, ‘everyone’ of them know about this and yet silence from ‘ALL’ of them, and do not be played folks. This is Lincoln the tyrant 2.0 for everyone who stopped learning after government school!

    October 23, 2014 Special report: America’s perpetual state of emergency

    The United States is in a perpetual state of national emergency. Thirty separate emergencies, in fact. An emergency declared by President Jimmy Carter on the 10th day of the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979 remains in effect almost 35 years later. A post-9/11 state of national emergency declared by President George W. Bush — and renewed six times by President Obama — forms the legal basis for much of the war on terror.

    “The purpose of a written constitution is to bind up the several branches of government by certain laws, which, when they transgress, their acts shall become nullities; to render unnecessary an appeal to the people, or in other words a rebellion, on every infraction of their rights, on the peril that their acquiescence shall be construed into an intention to surrender those rights.” – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia [1782] States of America, 1787

      “War in terror”.
      Meanwhile, we face a greater threat of harm from bees and bathtubs.

      Our “leaders” are psychopaths.

    This is why so many for so long have been trying to wake up the masses about the truth of 9-11, Sandy Hoax, Batman (BS) shooting, Boston (smoke) bomb and the other false flags that go on here daily and the media spin that helps it out. Once people see the true lengths they are willing to go to hang on to that power and control the masses we can begin to fight back in stronger numbers.
