“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9
The above quote was delivered by Richland County (SC) Sheriff Leon Lott at a 2008 press conference as he was presenting his department’s new toy: an M113A1 armored personnel carrier. “The vehicle, which moves on tank-like tracks, features a belt-fed, turreted machine gun that fires .50-caliber rounds [and can shoot through buildings].” He claimed, incorrectly, that the Bible refers to “law enforcement as peacemakers.” It does no such thing. And if he were being honest, he would have quoted scripture about how those in powerful positions should aggressively seek to instill fear and anxiety. Wait, he couldn’t do that because that’s, of course, not in there either!
I discovered Lott’s quote in Radley Balko’s book, Rise of The Warrior Cop – The Militarization of America’s Police Forces several years ago when I had become so disillusioned by the visuals in the news, by the lack of self-control, the immaturity — and evil — being exhibited by cops, and the utter bizarreness of this macho, threatening, suspicion-spreading, anti-peace-inducing stance they had begun taking.
Charles Earl Barnett, a U.S. Marines veteran and retired police major who has served on several United Nations and NATO military and peacekeeping missions, says a .50-caliber machine gun is “completely inappropriate” for domestic police work. It “causes mass death and destruction,” Barnett says. “It’s indiscriminate. I can’t think of a possible scenario where it would be appropriate.” (https://reason.com/2008/11/01/the-peacemaker/) Years later, Lott said his department had mainly used it to take to festivals and parades and such, and that it was a “conversation starter. ” I’ll bet. And it also served to condition the public to see sheriffs as military aggressors to be feared — another element of the groundwork being laid to remove the freedoms from citizens. Branding that tank “Peacemaker” is pure propaganda.
Two federal programs enable military-equipment transfers: programs 1033 and 1122. The 1033 program, signed into law by Clinton, but brought to life by GHW Bush, was instituted to allow the transfer of surplus military equipment to local police- and sheriff’s departments at a steep discount — or for free (they just had to pay shipping). Obama signed an Executive Order limiting it; Trump reversed that limit, expanding the program; and Biden has done little to curb it. Program 1122 allows local law enforcement to purchase military equipment with its “own funds” (taxpayers’ money) at the military discounted rate. Some of this equipment includes ammunition, weapons, and tactical armored vehicles. (https://www.brookings.edu/blog/how-we-rise/2021/09/09/how-9-11-helped-to-militarize-american-la.
Study after study has shown these programs to have a negative effect on communities; as such, 10 senators, headed by Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai’i) earlier this year sent a letter to Biden urging him to do away with them, stating, “Militarized law enforcement increases the prevalence of police violence without making our communities safer. Now is the moment to make these necessary reforms.” In their letter, the senators cite reports showing that police militarization fails to reduce rates of violent crime or change the number of officers assaulted or killed. Instead, arming police departments with military equipment has led to an increase in officer-involved shootings and civilian deaths
In 2020, Schatz led efforts to improve the 1033 program, forcing a vote on amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The final provision included in the NDAA and signed into law restricted the transfer of bayonets, grenades, weaponized tracked combat vehicles, and weaponized drones. It also required law enforcement agencies that receive 1033 equipment to certify that their police officers receive annual training on respect for the rights of citizens under the Constitution and de-escalation of force.
The “annual training on respect for the rights of citizens under the Constitution and de-escalation of force” is important. And as much as I appreciate these senators’ efforts, there are other issues that have not been addressed, namely: the Israelification, and the privatization, of law enforcement nationwide.
Veterans Today published an August 11, 2012 article by Gordon Duff and Press TV, “US Police Forces Being Israelized, as follows:
(Editor’s Note: The article below drew a hostile response from the CATO Institute and a myriad of suspicious “robo-sites” suspected of ties to terrorist organizations. It is our considered judgement that the information below is of value and is seen as a significant threat to the plans of those who have “bad intentions” toward the people of the United States.)
A military analyst says police departments in the United States are being trained by Israeli groups aiming to sink the country into total militarization and dictatorship, Press TV reports.
“Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups. As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system,” Gordon Duff wrote in an article on Press TV website.
He went on to say that, the process of “Israelization” of police in the US includes several policies which “the new Israeli trained American police are tasked with stopping opposition to”. “Total militarization of police, military tactics, utter disrespect for civil law, the constitution, civil liberties, freedom of speech and the unbridled growth of centralized power under unlimited corruption; government by money and organized crime. Systematic suppression of dissent…,” Duff noted.
The analyst added that the US has a reputation for corrupt police organizations with many senior American officers imprisoned every year.
Duff further explained that, “Every major American city and most smaller departments, and there are thousands, are being ‘retrained,’ not to fight corruption but being armed for civil war, trained to work directly with military personnel to police America in accordance with unpublished policies . . .”
He also stated that all the terrorist acts that happen in the US involve the American law enforcement, which “recruit terrorists or carefully remove key suspects. “
“What careful analysis indicates is that the groups that are training our police are, if not exactly the same, are closely related to groups suspected of being terrorists themselves, providing support for terrorists in Africa and the Middle East,” Duff concluded.
AMERICAN POLICE NOW “ISRAELI/DHS TRAINED,” PRECURSOR TO DICTATORSHIP
Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups.
As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system.
They are becoming “Israeli.”
The door to this foreign influence in America was thrown open by the Department of Homeland Security and, in particular, Michael Chertoff, an Israeli citizen who was, most instrumental as former Director of DHS in implementing policies challenged as unconstitutional, policies the new “Israeli trained” American police are tasked with stopping opposition to.
“Israelization” of American police is a simple process:
—Total militarization of police, military tactics,
– utter disrespect for civil law, the constitution, civil liberties, freedom of speech and the unbridled growth of centralized power under unlimited corruption; government by money and organized crime;
– Systematic suppression of dissent
– Systematic use of intimidation to control the electoral process at every level of government;
– Seamless coordination with military and “internationalist” groups to prepare for mass internment of sectors of the population, numbering in the millions;
– Coordinated use of full military power including but not limited to bombing, strafing, heavy artillery and summary executions, the same method Israel uses on a daily basis;
-Even more control of the press, based on the Israeli model, with two “controlled” views on pro-government and the second, “controlled opposition. “
It is absolutely necessary to differentiate between legitimate Israeli companies and those working tied to quasi-governmental organized crime in America. It is also necessary that citizenry, in particular Americans of Jewish background, recognize that a systematic campaign of controlled and revised history and, more seriously, orchestrated “incidents” are coordinated with groups misrepresenting themselves as defending the Jewish people.
These groups, several come to mind, are, in actuality, Israeli “psyops” groups that actually work on an active basis with terrorists. What are we saying?
90% of terrorism, worldwide, including many of the mass killing incidents, all show a pattern of involvement by intelligence organizations. Almost all “terror threats” and “staged announcements” are traced to groups tied directly to the same people who show up at our door with the “cure” to a disease they themselves create.
“While in Abuja, Nigeria, 3 weeks before the attack on the national police station, I met with Chief of Security Gordon Obua, a close friend and told him this:
“We have identified the Headquarters of the National Police as a potential target. It has an unguarded gate and parking facility and is close to the presidential palace. We predict that a car bomb will be exploded there, followed by one other bombing attack.
At these attacks, you will be approached by a security company that will offer you, not only protection by a massive bribe.”
The meeting was in the presidential suite of the Transcon Hilton in Abuja, witnessed by my legal team. The attack as described happened exactly 3 weeks later and the company that came with a suitcase of cash and a promise to turn Abuja, a beautiful city into “Fortress Abuja” is among those now training American police.
The same group is also suspected in the bombing of a Christian Church in Alexandria, Egypt, on January 1, 2011, another car bomb. Similarly, recent bombings in Cameroon, Kenya and Tanzania have the same “fingerprints.”
The same group “ran” the Detroit “Crotch Bomber.”
The Israeli handlers who worked with Abdullah Mohamed in Yemen and walking him onto a plane to the US with a bomb, no ticket, no passport and no visa, as witnessed by two Detroit area lawyers, Kurt and Lori Haskell, also train American police.
We see this over and over, police, government and terrorists, all the same thing.
Of course, few Americans are aware that the “spokesman” for the group called “Al Qaeda” is actually an American named Adam Perlman whose grandfather helped found the ADL (Anti-Defamation League)
To some, terrorism is a business, and like a tire store that leaves nails in the road nearby, some “counter-terrorism” companies have more experience in building car bombs than finding them.
Israeli security companies primarily made up of active Mossad and former IDF members, began working across Africa. Israeli expertise in wiretapping on behalf of ruling parties was what opened the door. Their expertise, as shown in Britain by the Murdoch/News of the World scandals, is excellent.
They were even able to wiretap the 3 prime ministers, members of the royal family, heads of police and national security agencies, key members of legislative bodies and a hand full of celebrities. The equipment for this costs millions, can only be brought into the country by diplomatic pouch and its use is considered espionage as it foments broad unregulated and unauthorized wiretapping, totally unaccountable.
Hundreds of such units are with America police departments, as advised by the Department of Homeland Security, to keep track of group they feel require observation, despite recent court rulings that have overturned FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) as unconstitutional.
Among the groups watched are veteran’s organizations, the Tea Party, Christian, Muslim and Jewish religious groups, labor unions, professional organizations and members of government, police officers and members of Federal law enforcement and anti-drug organizations.
Former American military, even the crippled and maimed, now head every “terror watch list.
The truth is, America has a long reputation for corrupt police organizations. Every few years there is, in every major city, an investigation with the police commissioner and many senior officers imprisoned.
At one point, Bernie Kerik, nominee for head of the Department of Homeland Security and Police Commissioner of the City of New York had actually served as Minister of the Interior of Iraq under the interim US government that ran that country after the 2003 invasion Kerik is in prison, originally charged with 16 felonies, some committed while running Iraq and facing a 142 year sentence and millions in fines. In a plea deal, Kerik is only serving 4 years. Kerik, prior to becoming police commissioner, Minister of the Interior of Iraq and nearly taking over the operation of the largest agency in the United States was New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s driver.
Every major American city and most smaller departments, and there are thousands, are being “retrained,” not to fight corruption but being armed for civil war, trained to work directly with military personnel to police America in accordance with unpublished policies mistakenly announced by Army head, General Odierno, as published in his article for the Council on Foreign Relations in the May/June edition of Foreign Affairs:
“Where appropriate we will also dedicate active-duty forces, especially those with niche skills and equipment, to provide civilian officials with a robust set of reliable and rapid response options.”
As for the Department of Homeland Security, spearheading the Israeli takeover of America’s police, David Rittgers of the Cato Institute has noted:
“A long line of fusion center and DHS reports labeling broad swaths of the public as a threat to national security. The North Texas Fusion System labeled Muslim lobbyists as a potential threat; a DHS analyst in Wisconsin thought both pro- and anti-abortion activists were worrisome; a Pennsylvania homeland security contractor watched environmental activists, Tea Party groups, and a Second Amendment rally; the Maryland State Police put anti-death penalty and anti-war activists in a federal terrorism database; a fusion center in Missouri thought that all third-party voters and Ron Paul supporters were a threat….”
Wikipedia quotes the following on the quality of management and personnel at DHS, a national scandal in itself:
“In July 2006, the Office of Personnel Management conducted a survey of federal employees in all 36 federal agencies on job satisfaction and how they felt their respective agency was headed. DHS was last or near to last in every category including;
•· 33rd on the talent management index
•· 35th on the leadership and knowledge management index
•· 36th on the job satisfaction index
•· 36th on the results-oriented performance culture index
The low scores were attributed to major concerns about basic supervision, management and leadership within the agency. Examples from the survey reveal most concerns are about promotion and pay increase based on merit, dealing with poor performance, rewarding creativity and innovation, leadership generating high levels of motivation in the workforce, recognition for doing a good job, lack of satisfaction with various component policies and procedures and lack of information about what is going on with the organization.
CREATING THE PERFECT POLICE STATE
The visible face of the totalitarian takeover of America is candidate Mitt Romney, sworn to start a world war for Israel, his backers, Sheldon Adelson, gambling boss of Las Vegas and China, the Koch Brothers and the Israel lobby, said to control America’s congress, certainly 100% of the Republican Party.
GASOLINE PRICING MANIPULATION THROUGH TERRORISM
Gasoline pricing in the world is run by the Koch Brothers who manage the futures market. Fuel prices are unrelated to oil costs but rather manipulated to serve political interests of two Israeli-American billionaires with extremist views.
During the past two weeks, there have been multiple “accidents” in refineries and with pipelines. These have, in fact been terror attacks, cutting refinery output in the US significantly, blocking oil pipelines from the Middle East and inside the US.
None of this, and it is terrorism, has been reported. There is only one cause and that is tied to who benefits from economic problems in an election year, this being Mitt Romney and the Likudist faction in Israel that is advocating war with Iran, not fought by Israel but by the United States, of course.
As with the mass shootings, be they Columbine years ago, Gabby Giffords at Tucson or so many others, the anthrax attacks now tied to our own government to the DC sniper, police and federal authorities have given out false press notices, sometimes showed up at crime scenes long after normal response times or may well have been complicit.
Nearly every terrorist act that supposedly occurs in the US involves law enforcement recruiting terrorists or carefully removing key suspects who were actually police officers involved.
The Oklahoma City bombing had several suspects disappear. The Detroit airport bombing attempt had witnesses report multiple arrests but no trials.
9/11 had nearly arrested, 2 on the George Washington Bridge who set off a truck bomb but disappeared the next day, people we suspect of being tied to law enforcement or “training groups” that are, in reality terrorists.
TERRORISM IS LAW ENFORCEMENT
What careful analysis indicates is that the groups that are training our police are, if not exactly the same, are closely related to groups suspected of being terrorists themselves, providing support for terrorists in Africa and the Middle East, be it Boko Harum in Nigeria or the PKK in Turkey.
Should our new police cars say:
Protect and Serve?
Trained by Terrorists?
Big Brother is Watching?
That is the end of the Press TV/Gordon Duff article and I think it says it all. And in case you’re not familiar with Duff:
Gordon is a Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam War. A disabled veteran, he worked on veterans and POW issues for decades. He is an accredited diplomat and is generally accepted as one of the top global intelligence specialists. Additionally, he manages the world’s largest private intelligence organization and regularly consults with governments challenged by security issues.
Jonas E. Alexis and Mark Dankof wrote a follow-up in support of that article, entitled “Israelification of American Domestic Police Departments.” You can find it here:
Further, Eran Efrari, a former Israeli soldier, a sargeant in Israel’s Nachal Division, served in the West Bank and was discharged in 2009. He then joined Breaking the Silence, an organization of Israeli veterans hoping to raise awareness of questionable activities in the West Bank.
Addressing the American public, Efran warned, “If you don’t care about Palestine . . . you guys should know you are next in line . . .because they [U.S. police and Israeli soldiers] are training together. Your police — training with our army. Our army is training them how to take care of the enemy . . . But when they come back, you are their enemy.” (To see one of his many powerful.videos, go here:
A couple of things I’d like to add before continuing with the final portion of this article:
Both here and at https://everydayconcerned.net), I have discussed the abuse, stalking and general life interference I have endured, for years, at the hands of law enforcement and their proxies, — particularly the fusion centers of multiple states — for many years (decades without my knowledge; seven years, so far, with it). Not because I did anything to deserve it; far from it. But just because one man, a very high-level government contractor/consultant, affiliated with them put me on their blacklist. Why? No idea. However, in 2008, I filed, and won, a lawsuit against a then-customer who owed me $10,000 having no idea of his connection to this contractor/consultant. He retaliated by suing me for slander. After wasting two years of my time and money, we went to arbitration and both walked away. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered that, not only was he directly
connected to the government consultant, but that when he’d sent me a subpoena, it was addressed and delivered not just to the sheriff of my county, but to EACH sheriff of my county. 95 sheriffs. A detail that escaped me at the time. But even if I had noticed it, I’m certain I wouldn’t have realized its significance. That realization took over a decade.
A quick re-cap about fusion centers: They came about after 9/11, and are filled with individuals from all levels of law enforcement, FBI, CIA, DHS, NSA, wealthy private citizens, and a individuals who are members of Infragard (which also came about after 9/11). They have access to all the latest 21st-century technology, and tools of surveillance available.
Having spent a lot of time in Richland — and Lexington — County, I am familiar (to put it mildly) with their fusion centers, as well as with Infragard. A few years ago, I discovered the president of the SC Infragard had trained with Israeli Defense Forces. I found it interesting, but didn’t think anything of it at the time. (I discovered, today, he has now deleted that training from his bio.) What I found especially interesting was that he stated that he was an “honorary” member of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department; I found it interesting since he lives in Charleston, not Columbia, where Richland County is located.
But to take it one step further: the ex-wife of the SC Infragatd president “chose” (her words) my close relative from a dating website years ago. He left the state where he was, they married, and he watched her four kids for the next few years while she went to night school for her Masters. Shortly after she got it, they divorced.
It’s a small, small world.
Continuing on, in addition to the heightened military mindset that comes with military training, and training with the Israeli army, America is blanketed with a gargantuan network of private police forces.
Jim Marrs, author of Population Control states, “Private police, termed by some as mercenaries for corporate America, are entrusted with all the powers of a government cop but not held to the same legal standards.” And John Rutherford, of The Rutherford Institute (https://www.rutherford.org) adds, [T]hese private police firms enjoy the trappings of government agencies — the weaponry, the arrest and shoot authority, even the ability to ticket and frisk — [but] they’re often poorly trained, inadequately screened, poorly regulated and heavily armed.”
Whitehead further states, “These are [in actuality] guns for hire, answerable to corporations who are already in bed with the government. They are extensions of the government without even the pretense of accountability.” Worse, — and I have personally witnessed this — local police departments provide uniforms and marked cars to unaccountable, private individuals/police. They can — and do — then outsource some of their, um, shadier activities to these guys. And a criminal with a badge (and a marked car!) is a much greater threat than one without one. So the next time you hear “Defund the police,” know the unspoken chant of this false flag is, “Give us a plausible reason for private, unaccountable police!”
Add to all this the Neighborhood Watches with citizens who have been trained to be suspicious of their neighbors, and to report comings and going of their neighbors to sheriffs through their special app, and you’ll have a clear picture of what America is truly like today, though most are blind to it. You’ll also see, while I’m sure meaning well, the Bill created for more law enforcement accountability, fell short.
This must change.
This is not the America we deserve.
Ashley Hayes is a former business entrepreneur, patented inventor, researcher, and writer seeking to bring attention to the clearly-organized crimes of unlawful and corrupt law enforcement and fusion center personnel against innocent Americans and citizens worldwide, as well as crimes committed by military contractors via 21st century technology, and to the pandemic of child trafficking by those in power.
