CIA Militia in the Heartland

The Secret Life Of Extreme Militias

TIME magazines latest cover story focusing on "The Secret Life of Extreme Militias" profiles the Ohio Defense Force and given the magazine's long standing reputation as the mouthpiece and sometimes bully pulpit of American establishment politics as well as its less admitted role as one of the mainstays of Orwellian thought control, it is instructive to peruse the contents of the Henry R. Luce Foundation's latest efforts to ensure homogeneity in the thinking of its extensive readership regarding the burgeoning militia movement in the United States.

The deceptively simple and tidy analysis which typifies TIME's attempt to pigeon hole complex issues, effectively dismissing them from any further more thorough and extensive journalistic endeavor, belies the psychological and behavioristic models which underlie a blatant form of newspeak propaganda which partakes more of the subliminal techniques of modern advertising than real journalism. With its stable of editors and reporters firmly entrenched and embedded in the government think tanks and military and intelligence agencies, one can discern an insidious and barely discernible attempt to shape and mold public opinion into such acceptable categories of opinion as resonate with the long established agendas of what some critics have termed its "media fascist empire".

On the surface, it would appear that the Luce Foundation associates the maneuverings and military exercises of the ODF with the recent activities of what they characterize as a deranged and dangerous assemblage of psychopaths, foremost of whom is one James Cummings, shot to death by his wife (?) in the little town of Belfast, Maine on December 9, 2008. Cummings apparently was engaged in the piecemeal assembly of a radioactive "dirty bomb" which he allegedly wanted to drive to Washington DC in the undercarriage of a motor home. Also profiled is octogenarian James Von Brunn who achieved notoriety in the June 2009 shooting of a security guard at the Holocaust Museum. As will be shown however, this convenient conflation serves only to cloak the hidden agenda of the political and paramilitary wings of black ops government intelligence agencies operating within the Ohio Defense Force and undoubtedly numerous other militia movements.

Along with a host of other "patriot", states rights, and militia luminaries who have momentarily grabbed headlines for their anti-government activities that it traces back several decades, TIME paints a lurid picture of various outrageous provocations enacted in the name of defending the constitutional rights of American citizens against the ever encroaching tyranny of the federal government. While generally avoiding the considerable and even lethal excesses of the ATF and FBI against various "patriot" groups, TIME focuses on the supposed "lone wolves" who seemingly spontaneously emerge from the wider context of the anti-government fringe with random acts of violence. This bizarre and growing retinue of Manchurian candidates and government provocateurs have served in the minds of many to brand legitimate dissent with the inevitable recrimination of "terrorism" effectively neutralizing political opposition. This "demonization"of a movement which has gained new found mainstream acceptance in the "Tea Party" and Libertarian campaigns of Congressman Ron Paul and Lyndon LaRouce, is widely challenged across a spectrum of anti-establishment forums, most notably but scarcely limited to Alex Jones Infowars and Prisonplanet media outlets.

Jones' vocal and untiring promotion of certain militia proponents such as Steve Quayle and the notorious Mark Koernke has undoubtedly provided millions with exposure to the so called "patriot" and militia movements and their apparent opposition to the "New World Order" enemy which Jones, as he never ceases to inform us, has gone to great and selfless lengths to expose, true Son of Liberty that he is. On the other hand Jones himself has come under increasing suspicion as a tool of controlled opposition and agent provocateur. Indeed both Jones and Quayle have amassed considerable fortunes with the vast commercialization and merchandising of the "patriot" counter culture. Needless to say, an essential component of the true patriot's stockpiles of ready provisions for the approaching NWO showdown is a vast array of weaponry as befits any red blooded American's rights and even duties under the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. Indeed if there is one issue which unites the disparate and contentious factions which form the volatile bubbling cauldron (formerly melting pot) of American social and cultural identity it is the unfettered access to the largest and most varied arsenal in world history.

The Ohio Defense Force Liberates The Roseville State Prison

Though the TIME magazine article depicts the Ohio Defense Force as an independent militia, the group is actually one of a number of State Defense Forces created by State Approved Charters across the nation. The ODF was founded by William B. Alexander, a former navy seal, along with two former Ohio SWAT team officers. They train by state approval on state land in uniform. According to Ohio State Law it is against the law for militias to do otherwise. For reasons to be discussed later, none of this was revealed in the TIME article. This past August the ODF engaged in mock operations at and around the abandoned Roseville State Prison near Zanesville.

Camouflaged and silent, the assault team inched toward a walled stone compound for more than five hours, belly-crawling the last 200 yards. The target was an old state prison in eastern Ohio, and every handpicked member of Red Team 2 knew what was at stake: The year is 2014, and a new breed of neo-Islamic terrorism is rampant in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio... The current White House Administration is pro-Muslim and has ordered a stand-down against Islamic groups. The mission: Destroy the terrorist command post — or die trying. The fighters must go in "sterile"—without name tags or other identifying insignia—as a deniable covert force. "Anyone who is caught or captured cannot expect extraction," the briefing officer said.

Though the exercises were grueling, exhausting and conducted with blank ammunition, the military character and training involved were quite real and apparently conducted according to strict military protocols. Although the TIME article suggests that this "moderate" militia was perhaps gearing up for a possible confrontation with the FBI or ATF, the real enemy potentially awaiting the ODF remains a subject of much speculation especially among members. It is interesting to note that the last mentioned protocols above are recognized signature practices of the 17th Special Operations Group, a delegation of which happened to be attending the ODF exercises under the command of Colonel Dick Wolf, a former Army drill sergeant, who in addition to taking a unit of the Group to join in armed patrols along the Mexican border, "travels around the country, to train groups in knife fighting and convoy operations" Knife fighting is also a signature specialty of the SOG.

The presence of the Special Operations Group seems to indicate at the very least a significant degree of government and professional military involvement in the activities of these "citizen soldiers", a strange conundrum for a militia possibly training for an armed confrontation with agencies of that same government. In fact the involvement of the 17th Special Operations Group reveals a covert liaison which the editors at TIME magazine may be only exposing under advisement of their intelligence agency imbed as a tacit acknowledgement of what is direct involvement of high level government intelligence agencies in the Ohio Defense Force. The Special Operations Group is actually an "element operating under the Special Activities Division (SAD), a division of the Central Intelligence Agency's National Clandestine Service "responsible for covert operations, black operations and other 'special activities'."(Wikipedia) There are two groups operating under the aegis of SAD, one for paramilitary operations and the other for political operations. One might assume that the ODF has a political action group attached to it as well.

Special Operations Group (SOG) is the element within SAD responsible for paramilitary operations. These operations include collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions, and all high threat military or intelligence operations with which the U.S. government does not wish to be overtly associated.[3] As such, members of the unit (called Paramilitary Operations Officers) normally do not carry any objects or clothing (e.g., military uniforms) that would associate them with the United States government.[4] If they are compromised during a mission, the government of the United States may deny all knowledge.[5] Wikipedia

It is noteworthy that SOG activities involve "the collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions and all high threat military or intelligence operations with which the US government does not wish to be overtly associated with". I guess we are now to assume that the US heartland now falls within the category of hostile territory and by inference that CIA trained and funded "patriot" militias, a.k.a. State Defense Forces, are now being deployed in advance of much anticipated massive civil unrest and social anarchy expected to follow the economic collapse and subsequent social disintegration of the United States. Thus any doubts of the members of the Ohio Defense Force as to the identity of the mysterious "enemy" for whom they are in combat training and whom they have alternately characterized as the ATF/FBI, private security contractors, UN forces or even Mexican national troops can be largely dispelled. To quote the legendary cartoonist and social critic Walt Kelly in the words of his beloved Pogo. "We have met the enemy and he is us"

Backlash Against Gays Roils Belgrade

The first gay rights parade since 2001 in Belgrade, Serbia led to the worst domestic violence in over a decade in the former Yugoslavian republic as the Balkans prepared for the impending visit of reputed lesbian and Wiccan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The coincidence nor timing of the two events was certainly not lost on either the participants in the confrontation nor the Serbian government which undoubtedly felt doubly compelled to limit the political damage and present itself to the EU as a model of tolerance. Nonetheless the clashes of heavily armed security forces with thousands of right wing Serbs, orthodox religious, and roving gangs of skinheads unleashed chaos in the streets of the Serbian capital which left the streets littered with overturned and burned automobiles and broken glass and lined with gutted businesses defaced with anti-EU graffiti. US Ambassador Mary Warlick attended and warmly endorsed the march which abruptly ended in face of the unrelenting opposition. Damages were estimated at more than one million Euros.

Once again the incredible divisiveness of the international gay agenda was on full display for all to see, openly abetted and encouraged by the US political establishment in the persons of Warlick and Clinton with the expected and resultant fractious discord exposing and exploiting the fissures of irreconcilable and colliding social strata. The resulting black eye for Republica Serbska was undoubtedly an intended result of the ongoing American geopolitical isolation of the Serbs still bristling from the dismemberment of their nation, the ceding of Kosovo and the devastating bombing at the hands of US/NATO led forces under General Wesley Clark in the early 90s Serbo-Croatian conflict during the regime of Mrs. Clinton's husband.

The events in the staunchly orthodox and adamantly anti-western Serbia were greeted with warnings from the European Union that such outrages would delay and possibly pre-empt any Serbian entry into the EU. They also signaled a growing backlash against the queer movement which up to this point has carried out its colorful and provocative displays of gay exhibitionism throughout the Western Hemispheric capitals. In the midst of the unrest generated by the economic crisis and growing social breakdown it can only be expected that such scapegoating of minority groups will increase exponentially as a renewed enthusiasm for chauvinist, nationalist and right wing agendas grows. The characteristic intoxication of paranoia which thrives in increasing social and economic upheavals unerringly seeks out those projected alien menaces which threaten to destroy the perceived social order. So far in the present crisis the US itself has remained immune from such pathological outbursts of irrational mob violence, but they are not long in coming, and not unlike the Belgrade queers, so many who presently command the streets under armed guard will likely soon be the unfortunate recipients of the anarchic and grotesque "justice" which dwells just on the other side of those same streets and the paramilitary police lines.

Al Qaeda Never Existed/Osama Bin Laden 9 Years Dead

It's been some time since I've seen this video, but I stumbled across it at Godlike Productions and just had to post it here as it goes farther than anything else I've seen to dispel the myth of "Al Qaeda"

As long as we're in a debunking mode here, I realized this post would be terribly incomplete without at least some reference to David Ray Griffin's excellent book "Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive" in which he conclusively proves that OBL (a.k.a. Tim Osman), died in the months following 9/11, and was miraculously resurrected by US intelligence agencies in the series of fabricated videos circulated since then. There is a thorough synopsis of the salient themes of Griffin's book at this link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1212851/Has-Osama-Bin-Laden-dead-seven-years--U-S-Britain-covering-continue-war-terror.html

The Wrath of Odd: Snyder vs. Phelps

The extremely bizarre and incongruous spectacle surrounding the ongoing political/media circus spawned by the Westboro Baptist Church's singular and unrelenting crusade against the iniquities of America has reached a crescendo of absurdity with arguments before the Supreme Court on the case of Snyder vs. Phelps. At issue is one of the more egregious of the Westboro Phelps family's signature antics of demonstrating at military funerals nationwide against the decadence and indecency of a nation which they perceive to be on greased rails to Gehenna due to its sinful ways. Originally directed against the pernicious influence on gays on our treasured moral values as a once God fearing nation, especially in the sacred ranks of the military, the scandalous and almost universally condemned spectacles staged by minister Fred Phelps and some 84 family members, who comprise the vast majority of the tiny Westboro congregation, have expanded to include obsequies marking the passing of any serviceman they can dredge up from a methodical scouring of military obituaries.

It was this ghoulish behavior which led them to position themselves a legally sanctioned (passed into Kansas State Law by Governor Kathleen Sibelius in 2007 and replicated in several states across the country) though scarcely respectful distance from a Catholic church in Westminister, Maryland one balmy spring day on March 10, 2006, as Marine Lance corporal Matthew Snyder was being laid to rest. Snyder had answered the call to duty shortly after September 11 only to fall victim to a Humvee accident in Iraq on March 3. As is usual with their increasingly familiar and garish pageants of shadenfreude, the Phelpses waved placards celebrating the deaths of US soldiers, the downfall of America and of course the execration of their erring and hell bound homosexual brethren.

The experience so traumatized Albert Snyder and his family that, with the help of the lawyer who had recently drawn up his will, and after witnessing his deceased son's graduation picture miraculously launch itself from its perch above the fireplace onto the floor, Snyder eventually sued Phelps and Westboro and won a spectacularly large judgment of $2 million along with $8 million in punitive damages. This victory was short lived however as the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision and in the end the grieving father had to pay some $16,510.80 in resulting court costs.
Shirley Phelps-Roper protests with signs that have offended some people in Bellevue, Neb., in December 2009.
Of course, the one enduring and adamantine claim upon which the Phelps family dogma is founded is that God hates just about everyone, everywhere without reservation or discrimination and can hardly wait to punish the vast majority of the insensible and wicked brutes he has created with the everlasting and unquenchable flames of hell fire. This rather dire view of the human condition is relentlessly broadcast on their charming and thoroughly entertaining web site: http://www.godhatestheworld.com/. Needless to relate this tiny faction of backwoods wackos have ignited a serious firestorm of controversy which, with its loud din and hubbub, has drawn in media mavens and polticos right, left, and center across a wide political/media spectrum from the bloated Michael Moore to transsexual Ann Coulter and even George Bush 43 (who signed into law The Respect for Fallen Heroes Bill in 2007 in acknowledgement of the disruptive efforts of Phelps and his Westboro cadre), veritably uniting the hostile and warring political partisans of a deeply divided nation in common purpose.

Yet it might be suggested that the preternaturally sclerotic Mr. Phelps, who reserves special acerbic and obscene condemnation for his fellow Protestant Christian ministers and the Pope for condoning and even sanctioning homosexual and pedophiliac activity within their respective clergies (as in "Your Pastor Is A Whore"), embodies a high profile example of a shared collective mania which has gripped the national consciousness and which finds a particularly revealing focus in the strange nexus of Snyder vs. Phelps. In the larger context of the once unthinkable and widespread international conflicts in which the nation is embroiled, the side show spectacle of the Westboro provocations and their concommittant legal imbroglios seem insignificant. Simply put, Phelps personal abusive disrespect for the dead (and the living) pales in comparison with justifiable criticism of the significant and far more serious business of massive US genocidal wars in progress across the Middle East and South Central Asia, not to speak of the catastrophic economic conditions.

Yet, in germino, this tawdry and grotesque tabloid spectacle, is but only one of many of the pathological exhibitionisms emanating from what has become a distorted and highly dysfunctional American society in the terminal stages of complete societal breakdown. This particular misé en scene, however, exposes one of the major archetypal rifts which has haunted the nation down through the centuries from its inception. The source of this abnormality which has caused such a major national psychological dissociation is of course the deep strain of Puritanism á la Cotton Mather and Jonathan Edwards the nature of which was imaginatively expressed most admirably in Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter" and brought to the stage a century later in Arthur Miller's "The Crucible".

Anyone really interested in the diathesis of Mr. Phelps peculiar atavistic dementia would be well advised to undertake a study of Puritanism in America especially as creatively depicted by those artists so steeped in determinants of our historical and collective national mythos. Such deep and primeval soundings resonating from the past are emblematic of an unacknowledged and yet still living history which resides in our shared collective unconscious and occasionally manifests in the inchoate ravings of those amenable to these blind impulses such as Fred Phelps.

In a nation daily transfixed by the growing and irrefutable evidence of its own decline and fall, the numerous pathologies emerging and contending for a piece of the media spotlight trained on the anguished paroxysms of the national death throes, form a grotesque and absurdly theatrical social landscape which has transformed the once invincible triumphalism and exceptionalism of empire into chaotic farce. The spectacle of a nation once called "United" splintering and fracturing into factionalism, hybrid nationalism, and contention of mutually exclusive economic and political interests as the national wealth and substance is pillaged and pirated by Wall Street robber barons and their legislative enablers is made only more painfully obvious by the paltry nature of this internecine squabbling and bickering as the country slides mournfully into oblivion.

Nowhere is the nonsensical claptrap of this embarrassing display of buffoonery more evident than in the so called struggle for "gay rights". And this is precisely the arena in which religious demagogues like the Phelps find their firmest footholds thanks to the selective and focused agendas of corporate owned media in service to pan global enterprises. It goes without saying that it is the designed intention of the foundation funded think tanks and institutes such as Monroe and Tavistock whose occult blueprints for social engineering plan and effect the evisceration of national and social identities in the name of a bogus "equality" under law but only for certain classes and social groups which effectively promote their divisive and alienating agendas.

Mr. Phelps would undoubtedly not be surprised to find that the past two occupants of the Oval Office have been seriously compromised by alleged involvements in homosexual affairs. Barack Obama has been dogged by persistent and highly credible allegations raised by Larry Sinclair regarding sex and cocaine use with Sinclair. Tom Heneghan and Wayne Madsen have also exposed Obama and Rahm Emanuel as mutually frequenting the Mountain Man gay bath house in Chicago. Bush 43's drug use is common knowledge and he has been linked with male prostitute and White House "correspondent" Jeff Gannon. GHW Bush of course was implicated as having pedophiliac sex parties at the White House during the notorious Lincoln Savings and Loan scandal, allegations which made front page news at the Washington Post before being summarily quashed. Of course these closeted homosexuals and lesbians (Hillary Clinton) however highly placed are highly unstable personalities and most susceptible to black mail, extortion, and coercion which is most amenable to the purposes of their handlers and controllers as well as making them high risks to national security. Indeed the halls of power are redolent of pervasive promiscuity, perversion, and sexual vice as befits those whose public personas serve only to conceal the vile filth of sadistic and deviant sexual pursuits which seem to be the necessary concomitants of these slaves to absolute power, obsessive control, and above all the worship of the prince of this world.

Thus, perhaps much like the Romans of the decadence in the reign of Commodus, the hopelessly corrupt American power elite and their worshipful minions, having availed themselves of such an unrestrained foray into similar exploits of sexual depravity, indecency, and licentiousness, await a universal chastisement of biblical proportions similar to that visited upon Sodom and Gommorah. If so, Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church will have reserved VIP seats front and center at the apocalyptic cataclysm. Convinced as they are that they are numbered among the righteous elect they will await, no doubt, their eternal reward and vindication. And yet an unfamiliar pang of guilt might send a quiver of apprehension up their righteous spines when they hear the following:
"Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison and you did not care for me...Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me" Mt.25- 41-14, 45
