It doesn’t take long for the media to go and spin a story. We have reported multiple times, the news of armed troops training in American cities for all out war. The media has been forced to pick up on the story since it’s hard to hide. The spin is that the troops are being used to help cut down on crime.
Following reports last week that U.S. Army humvees would be rolling down residential streets and highways in St. Louis as part of a training program, local news media channels featured interviews with residents who praised the sight of troops on the streets as a valuable crime-fighting tool similar to that used in foreign countries.
The exercise is part of a U.S. Army program run by military police from Fort Meade, Maryland focused around training MPs from St. Louis how to drive heavily armored vehicles “on highways and on city streets.”
Some witnesses have said that they feel that it is a good idea.
In a separate KSDK report, although acknowledging that some had expressed fears about martial law, the news channel emphasized how other residents had vowed to “stop and salute” the tanks as they rolled by.
While these news channels have framed the idea of troops on the streets as normal and reasonable, others have gone even further.
A joint drill between military and police in South Florida last month involving troops storming a building in the middle of the night, unannounced to local residents, was characterized by local media coverage not as a frightening example of how Americans are being acclimatized to accept a state of martial law but as a ‘cool tourist story’.
The media has found itself in a very uncomfortable position as a result of all of this military “training”. Some citizens are openly asking if marshal law is coming to American cities. The media have put a nice editorial spin on the story, all in the hopes of quelling fears that America could be heading into marshal law.
The very idea of military acting as law enforcement is a violation of the US Constitution. Under section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act, which states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”
It appears that the power elite are prepared to fight to the death in order to retain control of America. They plan on using our troops against us, and if our troops won’t do it; they have foreign troops as well. Americans shouldn;t mistake propaganda for news, disinformation for fact, or compliance for patriotism. The power elite realize that they are losing the war for our minds and are willing to do anything they can to hold onto their power.
The power elite have unleashed their media cronies to soothe Americans back into their slumber. They are here to tell us what to think and feel. The power elite are running scared, the time for action on their end is coming soon.
