Another “Drill” By the Military

First they were in Miami. Now Houston. The military is engaging in maneuvers that are obviously designed to familiarize our troops with the experience of  seizing and occupying our own cities.

    Fine, let them occupy the cities.
    That’s where all the liberals are anyways.
    Let them live in an occupied city of misery.

    But if they wonder out into the rural areas, they are going to be greeted with a hail of gunfire.

    They used an abandoned school for this so-called drill in Houston. Too bad the folks there were too focused on it being a former school and not just a convenient non-occupied structure. This “drill” was not done for the benefit of school children who might be under siege in a school. Law enforcement in cities already have ways of dealing with that sort of thing.

    No folks, we all know this was something far different. Something very unsettling. Something very sinister. These actions are not being done for the benefit of American society. When they are genuine, the populace is warned ahead of time.

    I have a question I hope someone here can answer for me. I am aware of a person who is an elected city council member of a city of roughly 55,000 people who went back to Washington, DC for city stuff in 2011 and is going to do the same this coming spring. I have never in my life ever heard of city council people having to visit Washington, DC regarding anything to do with how they run their cities.

    I know of no further details than this. But I found this fact really disturbing and I am wondering if anyone has heard of other city council people from cities across America who have gone back to DC in the last couple of years strictly to do with city stuff. And who were they meeting with and what are these meetings really all about?

    As we just saw in Miami and Houston, the mayors of these cities and city council members have to be aware ahead of time that these out of the ordinary military drills will be taking place in their cities. Why are they? And why are these folks going along with the plan? And keeping the general population out of the communication loop?

    Something is seriously afoot here. I don’t like it. And it is unsettling that there seems to be a lot of people across America that knows something is afoot but they aren’t talking. WTH is really going on folks?!!!!!

    The helicopter in the video is NOT and Active Army Hughes 500. The Army does NOT have any.

    All of the 160th/Delta Force Hughes 500′s are painted black.

    That leaves a reserve/guard unit OR a horse crap video stupidity.

    Could it be DHS/TSA/DEA/FEDZILLA? yuppers.

    Blacksmith8. MD 500. And I don’t believe the Army has used them for a long time. We discussed this last night and figured the “Inter agencies” the referred to probably were DHS, CIA, ATF, FBI, and the Teachers Union.

    There was another one of these drills in St. Louis not to long ago.

    The Tea Party is a threat to the Obama Régime.

    What is a threat? How do the government deals with a threat?

    A threat inhabits the future. A threat does not clearly present itself. It vaguely looms, and its looming casts a shadow on the present.

    A threat is how an uncertain future makes-itself-felt in the present. This has immediate consequences on the plane of action. [...] This viscerally felt, affective presence of an uncertain future has consequences for the future. In a weird way, threat is a way in which the future affects itself.

    It’s like a time-loop. The future comes back to the present to trigger a reaction that jolts the present back to the future, along a different path of action than would have eventuated otherwise. Threat is a strange animal: a future cause. It comes from the future, to act on the futurity from which it came. In a sense, threat makes future self-causing. There is a kind of short-circuit in time. A future cause (the looming of the threat) loops through affect in a way that effectively changes what goes down. Threat loops through affect to effect, never surrendering the future tense.

    The government deals with a threat by PREEMPTIVE ATTACKS.

    The future is precisely what is not yet objectively present. It’s not empirically observable. Preemption operates in the realm of affect. Its concern is threat. If it is enough for threat to be felt for it to be real and effective, then it’s logical that the actions that effectively flow from the feeling of threat are going to be justified affectively as well. With preemption, the justification for actions, the legitimation of political decision, tends to become fundamentally affective.

    An attack against gun-clinging Tea Partyers could be “justified” by the MSM only by affective modulation, by making folks FEEL those rednecks are dangerous.

    By preemptive the redneck threat, the Obama régime will produce redneck terrorists.

    Create the conditions for the emergence of threat (register their guns; and provoke them with a few confiscations).

    Start the threat on the way to becoming a clear and present danger, and then nip it in the bud with your superior rapid-response capabilities.

    The Military may go along with the drills, but I don’t know a single person in the Military that will actually obey ANY orders to disarm the American People.

    Obama is in for a rude awakening.

    The Rank and File (not the corrupt Military Elite) will turn on him, arrest him, and place him on trial for TREASON, all in good time.

    They are just stting back letting Barry dig his own metaphorical grave first.

    There will be plenty of testimony and many witnesses, bringing evidence against Mr. Soetoro and his co-conspirators on Judgement Day.

    No to Hope.

    To hope is to look dreamy-eyed toward the future — cringing with the certainty that when the future comes, it will be enough to make you cry tears of joy.

    What is bad about hope is that it keeps on deferring to the future again — eyes wet with hope, again.

    What we need is Christ, since Christ has the same reality-producing power that preemption has, but to different effect: it’s Christ, not Ceasar.

    Christ can act as a counter-affective posture to preemption that we can find right here in the present.

    Yes to His Presence.

    I call an operative logic that is positively productive of what will really come to be, an ontopower –- “onto-” meaning being. An ontopower is a power that makes things come to be: that moves a futurity felt in the present, into a presence in the future.

    – Brian Massumi

    Christ is ontopower, but He affects us with joy rather than sadness; with life rather than death.

    Resistance to Caesar is possible, even now.

    Resistance, however, must engage in that full-spectrum battlespace that has become the space of LIFE. This means engaging the operative logic of preemption on its own terrains. This means a war for the future (against the preemptive logic of Caesar). It also means engaging Caesar on the level of affect: reclaiming legitimation in Christ, a completely different affective key than Caesar’s.

    Not the key of hope. Not the key of nostalgia. Not the key of rage.

    The key of Christ.

    It’s for all of us to collectively discover Him. Not only on a personal level, but also at a political one.

    That where Ann is so inspiring and important.

    Are they provoking someone to take a shot? Is this what they are trolling for so they can declare martial law?

    Obama does not need no secretly trained Army. He has already many full-spectrum paramilitary forces carrying out his shadowy preemptive war games under the cover of secrecy: the CIA and the Pentagon’s US Special Operations Command, both of which have DOMESTIC infinite and indefinite surveillance capabilities. Those organs report directly to Obama personally without any form of judicial oversight or Congressional oversight, keeping him perpetually poised for instant delivery of extralegal, EXECUTIVE action on demand.

    All it takes is one lucky shot into the transmission of that helicopter and it’ll be knocked out of the sky.
