Note the term “civilians”. The fake war on terror was always intended to bring war to the domestic arena. It’s just good business.
A Princeton University study concluded that militarizing police and SWAT teams “provide no detectable benefits in terms of officer safety or violent crime reduction.”
“There are always risks in challenging excessive police power, but the risks of not challenging it are more dangerous, even fatal.”—Hunter S. Thompson, Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century
I have known a lot of good cops, I have defended a lot of good cops, and I have been fortunate to call a number of good cops friends.
So when I say that warrior cops—hyped up on their own authority and the power of the badge—have not made America any safer or freer, I am not disrespecting any of the fine, decent, lawful police officers who take seriously their oath of office to serve and protect their fellow citizens, uphold the Constitution, and maintain the peace.
My beef is with the growing squads of warrior cops who have been given the green light to kill, shoot, taser, abuse and steal from American citizens in the so-called name of law and order.
These cops are little more than vigilantes with a badge.
Indeed, it is increasingly evident that militarized police armed with weapons of war who are allowed to operate above the law and break the laws with impunity have not made America any safer or freer.
Don’t take my word for it.
A new study by a political scientist at Princeton University concludes that militarizing police and SWAT teams “provide no detectable benefits in terms of officer safety or violent crime reduction.”
In fact, according to researcher Jonathan Mummolo, if police in America are feeling less safe, it’s because the process of transforming them into extensions of the military makes them less safe, less popular and less trust-worthy.
The study, the first systematic analysis on the use and consequences of militarized force, reveals that “police militarization neither reduces rates of violent crime nor changes the number of officers assaulted or killed.”
In other words, warrior cops aren’t making us or themselves any safer.
Consider that not a day goes by without reports of police officers overstepping the bounds of the Constitution and brutalizing, terrorizing and killing the citizenry. Indeed, the list of incidents in which unaccountable police abuse their power, betray their oath of office and leave taxpayers bruised, broken and/or killed grows longer and more tragic by the day.
Americans are now eight times more likely to die in a police confrontation than they are to be killed by a terrorist.
The problem, as one reporter rightly concluded, is “not that life has gotten that much more dangerous, it’s that authorities have chosen to respond to even innocent situations as if they were in a warzone.”…
… The proxy war in Syria, between the US and Russia, now seems to be approaching a critical juncture, where US forces may finally meet Russian forces in battle. Up until now, only allies of Russia and the US have fought each other directly. There was, however, a very close call about six months ago when US forces killed over 200 Russian mercenaries….
The US has attempted several times to get their citizens interested in a full-scale attack against the Assad Regime in Syria but have had only minimal success. The US used news of several chemical attacks on innocent Syrian civilians to paint Assad as a monster. However, there are many who question the legitimacy of these attacks, including people in the West. Just a few days ago, the Russian government warned that US-backed rebels in Syria were planning another chemical attack to blame on the Assad regime.
Russia is not taking these potential US escalations lightly, and they look willing to help Assad win the war at high costs. We can see their seriousness by the massive navy buildup in the Mediterranean Sea. This is the Russian Navy’s largest buildup so far in the Syrian war.
The Russians appear like they are ready for a major military operation. This operation may include two key aspects: 1) to help with Assad’s imminent push to rid Idlib of rebels once and for all, and 2) to help deter US forces from making further advancements against the Assad regime.
Will we finally see a violent showdown between US and Russian forces? It’s hard to say with a great deal of certainty. But one thing is certain, the US and Russia don’t look willing to back down from this fight. At this point, to the keen observer, it looks like a slow-motion train wreck. And nothing, so far, has made the collision look more inevitable than this massive Russian buildup.
The transatlantic financial elite are nearly throwing the kitchen sink at Turkey, as far as currency & economic war is concerned. Since the Coup of 2016 didn’t work in making Ankara heel before Atlanticist imperial desires, the money vice is now re-deployed, as it had been over the past couple of years, and in clumsy, desperate fashion, driving this strategically vital NATO member (barely a NATO member at this point, though…) further eastward into the waiting arms of Russia, China, Iran, and their rising number of Eurasian, southern hemispheric and Belt & Road Initiative transcontinental partners & allies.
Yet the harder the fiscal belligerence against Turkey, the more transparent the means deployed, and the weightier the fodder obtained by Turkey & its non-NATO friends in using the very force of said economic war against the initiators & inflictors of an intended currency collapse against the Turkish lira. This sense of counter-attack by Turkey & its eastern partners thereby sets an example for other nations targeted by Washington & its allies due to noncompliance or obstinance over such items as energy pipeline mandates, wider global developmental priorities & the very essence of a continuing unipolar versus a multipolar world order.
In this 27th episode of Money & Fear, and as always, in the show’s detailed Show Notes listed under the videos on our website, we’ll explore the hows & whys of Turkey’s national currency plummeting, and responses to said phenomena already initiated or pondered by Turkey & its eager Eurasian sponsors. Come get a taste of how the currency war sausage is made so that you can have a better fluency for the wider global menu.

Dr. Asseem Malhotra is known as one of the most influential cardiologists in Britain and a world-leading expert in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Currently, he is leading a huge campaign against excess sugar consumption. What also makes him unique is something he recently admitted took him decades to figure out: that our entire medical system, one of the main ‘protectors’ of the human race, is completely corrupt. He now believes that medical education is a state of “complete system failure,” causing “an epidemic of misinformed doctors.” He also stated that honest doctors can no longer practice honest medicine, and that there is also a growing epidemic of patients who are being harmed….
Since we are down the rabbit hole in this country I’d be the last to discount the claims made in this pdf. The author is a PhD particle physicist so one would think she’s probably not completely off the deep end. Declassified documents reveal years of covert testing of radio/biological substances on large civilian populations in san francisco and st louis. And that was just for the hell of it, no actual attacks were intended although health consequences were likely in a minority of the populations. In contrast, compelling reports out of iraq 10 years ago claimed the use of a lethal directed energy weapon (maybe a hafnium isomer gamma ray laser) being used on civilians there. Also testing for the “hell” of it.
Let me put it this way: what’s to stop the permanent government from doing this? The law? Are you kidding?
Victims of the Secret Services are attacked by a plethora of weapons and are also often subjected to torture via covert non-consensual implants made from military biotechnology. Examples are radio-frequency emitting microchips that form a Body Area Network, eye implants for image transmission and ear implants for voice transmission, known as Voice-to- Skull technology. This document contains the recommended gadgets and devices for collecting audio-visual evidence and detecting Directed Energy Weapon attacks as well as non-consensual body implants. Different ways of shielding from attacks are suggested….
