The United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) has just announced plans for an anti-terrorism exercise called Vigilant Shield 08. The exercise which is slated to run from October 15th to October 20th is described as a way to prepare, prevent and respond to any number of national crises. The exercise is simply a test case scenario for the implementation of martial law. Although the description of the exercise is disturbing, USNORTHCOM also announced that they are more prepared for a natural disaster and a terrorist attack after they used their response to Hurricane Katrina as a test laboratory. During Hurricane Katrina, authorities violated the constitutional rights of citizens by stealing people�s firearms and even relocating people against their will. These announcements are incredibly disturbing on a number of levels as the nature of Vigilant Shield 08 and the admission that Hurricane Katrina was used as a test laboratory shows that the government is actively preparing the military and government institutions for martial law.

Below is the full press release from USNORTHCOM describing Vigilant Shield 08. Also check out the Vigilant Shield 08 fact sheet by clicking here. Read the rest of this entry »

We received a direct response from Florida’s Attorney General today. It is more of a blanket response, but here it is:

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has received your email regarding the arrest of a University of Florida student during a recent event. Attorney General McCollum asked that we respond.

Your comments are indicative of the broad spectrum of public opinion concerning  appropriate government response.  Attorney General McCollum shares your concerns about the duties of our law enforcement authorities,
public officials, and the media to responsibly and ethically balance the vigorous pursuit of truth with individual rights and freedom of speech.

The University of Florida adminstrators have requested that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) conduct a formal  and independent investigation of the actions surrounding the arrest of the student.  If you
would like information regarding the FDLE, their website is:

If you wish to contact FDLE for further  information, you may do so at Post Office Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302.  The telephone number is (850) 410-7000.

You may also wish to voice your concerns to the Internal Affairs section and/or the head of the law enforcement agency in question.  Part IV of
Chapter 112, Florida Statutes, sets forth the process and requirements pertaining to complaints against law enforcement officers.  You may access that chapter and the Florida Statutes in their entirety in a searchable database online at:

Thank you for contacting Attorney General McCollum’s Office.
 

What do you think of the e-mail letter?

There is a fantastic article by Howard Ditkoff that looks into the emotions and psychology  of people responding to the Andrew Meyer taser incident.

Howard writes:

What I’ve found most fascinating about the situation are the responses.

Clearly there has been a significant proportion of people that has responded with anger and indignation to what they view as the police using far too much force on Meyer without just cause. Some of those people go as far as to claim that the action was an attempt to deny Andrew Meyer his First Amendment rights and to unfairly and/or illegally suppress his pointed questions about some highly sensitive issues.

On the other hand, many people I have spoken with have defended the police. Even while admitting that their actions may have been rather heavy-handed, they will bring up – and reasonably so – the fact that police officers work in an atmosphere of great danger. Thus, they argue, we need to be sympathetic to the fact that the officers were responding to a person who was in fact resisting arrest, regardless of whether or not the arrest was originally justified or not.

But what is most striking to me is the level of emotion with which I’ve seen people, including myself, respond on both sides of the issue. As the phrase goes “When it’s hysterical, it’s historical,” and I have come to believe that people are reacting to this event based mostly on their own past experiences with authority figures during their development and/or their own coping responses to those experiences.

The folks over at Neocon News believe we don’t know the full happenings of the white Florida college student who was tasered at a recent Kerry forum. Everyone is talking about this news story now, even the big outlets. They are circulating a different video.

When is freedom of speech not permitted? Why are police or law-enforcement authorities allowed to man-handle and taser a college student for speaking his mind?

Should these types of anti-Constitutional acts of violence be allowed in our country? I say taser the police officers who man-handled and arrested this man!!!

We cannot allow our government agencies to abuse our God-given rights. Stand up and be heard!

We found the following news from a WordPress blog this morning. We feel this sort of torture and censorship should never happen. Help this man fight back against the police who arrested him!

Not once did Kerry call out for mercy for the questioner. Not once. He is a coward who lacks the guts to answer an embarrassing question and a moral idiot who cannot identify wrong being done in his own name when he sees it.

Character matters, John Kerry. I thank God you lost the Presidential race in 2004!

John Kerry should be ashamed of what he did today, tomorrow, and every day of the rest of his life. Democrats who respect him should rethink supporting him and any other leftist candidates who mouth platitudes about free speech they do not adhere to in their own lives.

What am I talking about? Watch.

A young man goes to the microphone at a John Kerry Townhall meeting to ask a question. “Were you a member of the Skull and Bones in college. Were you and Bush members of the same secret society?”

Eight police grabbed the student and hustled him up to the back of the auditorium where they forced him to the ground and piled on top of him. The audience cheered when he was grabbed and moved away. Shouting, the student protested his treatment, repeatedly asking why he was being arrested, what he did, and begging them not to taze him. They tasered him more than once. I counted four flashes and probably missed some.

Shame on John Kerry and the other passive, spineless jellyfish in the auditorium. Shame!

Alex Jones’ Endgame

September 7, 2007

The trailer for Alex Jones’ highly anticipated Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement has been released. The full-length feature documentary by Alex Jones comes out October 2007. Re-post this trailer everywhere you can; let’s get people ready to watch what could be the most exposing documentary of all-time.

Dozens of truckers rallied at Mexican border crossings in California and Texas Thursday to protest a pilot program to allow up to 100 Mexican trucking companies to haul their cargo anywhere in the United States.Carrying signs reading “NAFTA Kills” and “Unsafe Mexican Trucks,” a few dozen protesters circled in the heat for two hours at Laredo’s port of entry on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“What do we want? Safe highways. When do we want them? Now!” they chanted.

The U.S. Transportation Department issued the first permit Thursday to Transportes Olympic, based in a suburb of Monterrey, Mexico. It won the permit after Mexico granted authority to Stagecoach Cartage & Distribution Inc. of El Paso, Texas, to travel anywhere in Mexico.

Both companies can cross the border immediately but may not do so for several days while they determine new routes, said John Hill, who runs the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which regulates truck safety.

“What we’re hearing from the carriers is they could be ready to go as soon as days from now,” Hill told reporters on a conference call from Washington.

The U.S. plans to give as many as 25 Mexican firms permission by the end of September and add another 25 companies each month until hitting 100 by the end of this year under the one-year program, Hill said.

Mexico has also committed to allow as many as 100 U.S. firms anywhere in Mexico by the end of this year, he said, and 14 are poised to receive permission.

So far, 38 Mexican trucking firms have been prescreened to go anywhere in the U.S., Hill said.

The Teamsters union, Sierra Club and watchdog group Public Citizen had sued to stop the program, arguing there wouldn’t be enough oversight of drivers, but a federal appeals court ruled the Bush administration could move ahead. Read the rest of this entry »

How do you deal with protesters? Apparently, the White House knows.

Not that they’re worried or anything. But the White House evidently leaves little to chance when it comes to protests within eyesight of the president. As in, it doesn’t want any.

A White House manual that came to light recently gives presidential advance staffers extensive instructions in the art of “deterring potential protesters” from President Bush’s public appearances around the country.

Among other things, any event must be open only to those with tickets tightly controlled by organizers. Those entering must be screened in case they are hiding secret signs. Any anti-Bush demonstrators who manage to get in anyway should be shouted down by “rally squads” stationed in strategic locations. And if that does not work, they should be thrown out.

But that does not mean the White House is against dissent — just so long as the president does not see it. In fact, the manual outlines a specific system for those who disagree with the president to voice their views. It directs the White House advance staff to ask local police “to designate a protest area where demonstrators can be placed, preferably not in the view of the event site or motorcade route.”

The “Presidential Advance Manual,” dated October 2002 with the stamp “Sensitive — Do Not Copy,” was released under subpoena to the American Civil Liberties Union as part of a lawsuit filed on behalf of two people arrested for refusing to cover their anti-Bush T-shirts at a Fourth of July speech at the West Virginia State Capitol in 2004. The techniques described have become familiar over the 6 1/2 years of Bush’s presidency, but the manual makes it clear how organized the anti-protest policy really is. Read the rest of this entry »

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Provocateurs underline plot to make SPP protest look violent, even though The Resistance was gathered peacefully to protest. The Resistance is about peaceful protest, requesting answers from those in charge of our countries and governments.

Here is the video footage from the Montebello Summit meetings the Internet is buzzing about.

We knew this was a big story, but we figured since everyone else was talking about it or covering it on their blogs, we’d sit tight for a few days.

The video along with exclusive photographs at Paulitics is evidence that the global elites will go to any means possible to smear the intentions of and enslave the people they govern.

The Resistance is anyone who spreads the truth of our government, who protests against the tyrants dressed as leaders, and gives a damn about our future.
