White House Implements Martial
Law Plans Conscripted
Service, Takeover of Personal Property, Natural Resources NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 031712
The White House has struck again with another Executive Order to
stifle life as we know it in the US. Not surprisingly, the new order was
released on Friday, prior to the St. Patrick's Day weekend. Whenever the powers
that be want to hide news, they do it on the weekend, when the news cycle is
slow due to low viewership.
This weekend they released an announcement of the NDRP, the National
Defense Resources Preparedness plan. In this new Executive Order they claim the right to force people
into service camps, to take our personal property and all of our natural
resources. This is a total overhaul of the US, with a new government structure,
without the approval of "we the people."
This is a total takeover of absolutely everything! This new
Executive Order redefines and reorganizes the United States government in a most
radical fashion, one that could very well be deemed oppressive to its people.
This last Executive order is outrageous in its scope
and egregious in the temerity and hubris with which they re-shape our society.
The government has given itself the ability to steal our personal property and
take our natural resources, as well forcing service without compensation.
As you read along in this Orwellian restructuring of
the US, you have to gasp and ask yourself, under what dire conditions do we have
to endure for this EO to be enacted... but then you notice the language that says
all of these drastic nation restructuring acts are allowed under peacetime as
Excuse me, but why the hell do we need to
drastically restructure the nation in peacetime? Does this make any sense to
Of course they
will probably say they will never use such power against we the people, but
how do we accept their word for it, in light of all the times we've been lied to
by our government?
The new NDRP, just enacted on March 17th, is as
deadly as the Patriot Act or the recently passed NDAA. Once again, the
mainstream media has let this martial law-style Executive Order slide by, just as it did with NDAA
and HR 658.
The fact that a bill of such dire consequence would be released
on a Friday prior to a drinking holiday is certainly less than forthcoming on
the part of the administration.
Sadly enough, this is exactly what they did when
Obama signed the NDAA bill on New Year's eve. That too was a drinking holiday
that just happened to fall on a weekend when the news cycle is slow. The perfect
time to bury big news.
The corporate mainstream media is a partner in this news sleight
of hand. We'll see how they treat this story after the weekend is over. This
reporter's guess is that we will instead talk about possible war with Iran or
Syria, but no one in the mainstream media will dare talk about this new
Mark my words, the mainstream media will fail us all in their
duty to report the real news. They will not report this story.
Check Out The Reading Material of Obama
- The Post American World?
What is our government really planning for?
This book that Obama carries is revealing.
Since 2011, many acts have taken place to threaten
the US Constitution and create a US police state. Please take note...
November 9... the government conducted its first
ever nationwide test of the EAS, the Emergency Alert System, essentially the
same as the EBS (Emergency Broadcast System).
Many questioned the impetus of the November nationwide alert test because we went through the entire cold war era without ever having a
coast to coast test, plus another ten years after 9/11, so why all of a sudden
did they decide to have a test in November? Seems kind of odd to go a decade
after 9/11 before ever considering this.
FEMA publishes its Continuity of Government Plan NCP / PAMSS. This
document includes Blue Force Situational Awareness into effect in the US, a
system for identification of friend or foe. This is a battlefield designation,
so why all of a sudden has it been written into a new US Continuity of
November 28... the Senate passes the National
Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2012,
S-1867. The bill was sent to
the reconciliation committee to be joined with the House version of the bill,
December 8... the White House releases its
Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) to address ideologically-inspired violent
extremism in the Homeland. The document states, "As a government, we are
working to prevent all types of extremism that leads to violence, regardless of
who inspires it." -President Barack Obama. This dovetails with the
Empowering Local Partners To Prevent Violent
Extremism In The United States which was released on August 1st. Will
extremism be defined as the act of usurping the US Constitution, damaging our
nation financially, or will it be
reserved to those that cry out about crimes of state being perpetuated by our
December 31... Obama signs the NDAA bill on
New Year's eve weekend, a drinking holiday. This was done on purpose, to hide
the signing at a time when Americans were all drinking or hung over.
February 8... FAA ACT HR 658 (30,000 spy
drones bill) is passed. They have a maximum of 9 months from Obama's signing to
get the plan into action and drones in the air over the US. A total of 30,000
drones has been targeted, easily 600 per state, or more.
March 17... NDRP (National
Defense Resources Preparedness) Executive Order is issued on St. Patrick's
day, again... another drinking holiday. This is a martial law plan for the US,
for use in disaster, war ANDpeacetime.
One question... why ever would these extreme
measures be needed in peacetime?
The fact that all of this has come together all at
once is hard to accept as coincidence. Take note of all the legislation or
Executive Orders that have been put in place just since November 2011. Couple
that with the
“Cocked Pistol” maximum readiness alert
drill on September 27th and you
have to wonder what all the fuss is about.
It would seem that our government is preparing for something...
including a dramatic restructuring our country and planning for the oppression of American citizens.
As if all of this isn't a big enough assault on "we the people"
and what few rights we still have left, we are also threatened with losing our right
to free speech on the internet through
SOPA HR 3261 (October 26) and
PIPA S.968 (May 12). These acts portend to be about copyright infringement
and online piracy, but as with many bills, the devil is in the details.
Underneath it all, the focus seems to be more about internet free speech infringement and
website control and censorship than anything else.
It's also extremely interesting to note that once
the FEMA NCP/PAMSS continuity of government document from November 18th was discovered, it was
immediately pulled down from the internet and suddenly deemed "top secret." Very
Regarding the new SIP program, a question that seems
pertinent to ask is who gets to define "extremism" in America? Will the
definition of extremism be limited to citizens lawfully expressing concern over
government crimes of state, or will it extend to include Wall Street and Federal
Reserve policies that endanger the economic state of the nation while a select
few profit? Will the definition of violent extremism include an administration
that conducts illegal invasions and unprovoked wars with sovereign nations, or
will they once again target 9/11 truth members and Occupy protestors?
So, the big question is, what is going on? What is
our government preparing for?
Is this a preparation for war?
One thing seems certain, they are preparing for the
worst and it appears that "we the people" will bear the brunt of whatever
that chosen event will be.
A police state is not being erected, it is
pretty much already in effect. They're almost done with their nefarious legal preparation.
Now they're just waiting to execute their plan. They will pick a time that
serves them and them alone.
Aside from divine intervention, it would be nice to
see some politicians, government officials, intelligence agents, or military
leaders step up on our behalf. Our government is being stolen from us as all
efforts continue toward the new world order plan for world domination by the
ultra-wealthy powers that be.
Our infiltrated government lied to us about the
usage of the Patriot Act. It has been used against "we the people"
continually since 9/11, as opposed to the terrorists it was sold to us for. Do
you really want to trust our government again when it comes to NDAA, HR 658, or
the new NDRP? This reporter certainly can't blame anyone for having legitimate
doubts. History sadly enough shows that reservations are warranted.
God help us all. I think we're going to need it.

THE WHITE HOUSE,

Obama's Executive Order: Strong Cities &
Communities - Municipal Takeover
Joe Joseph, Popeye and Tim Watts discuss this
"A nation can survive its
fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason
from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is
known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves
amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling
through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government
itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in
accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and
their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in
the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works
secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of
the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer
resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."
-Marcus Tullius Cicero
