IS this a publicity stunt or do they really know something? If they do know something is coming down the pike then it won’t be good.

Oath Keepers is instructing it’s 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces “A Team” (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and eventually to assist in forming and training town and county militias (established by official act of town and county elected representatives). We want our chapters to organize themselves as a working model that we can then take to other veterans organizations, such as the VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc. in each town and help them establish such teams within their already existing veterans halls. And likewise, to serve as a model and training cadre to help churches, neighborhood watches, and any other civic organization organize.

We are basing this on the Special Forces model, which has a twelve man “A team” of specially trained soldiers who are inserted into a community to train and lead that community in resistance to oppressive regimes (hence their motto: “De Oppresso Liber). SF’s primary mission is to teach, organize, and lead, rather than to directly fight. They can fight, of course, but they are most dangerous as a force-multiplier by helping an entire community to fight. We will do the same – be force multipliers to help prepare communities so they can preserve civilization by providing their own security, disaster relief, infrastructure preservation, emergency communications, strategic food reserve, and medical care.

In an SF team, there are:

Two communications experts.

Two Medics.

Two Combat Engineers (who can do more than demolitions. They can also build bridges, dig wells, install water-treatment, irrigation systems, etc. ).

Two weapons experts.

An Operations NCO.

An Assistant Operations NCO who also does intelligence.

A commanding officer, and his assistant commanding officer.

It’s hard to understand after all the evidence that the Boston Bombing was a False Flag event, the same with  9-11 people still just don’t get it. Even if they do when will they stand up and say no more. No more killing and war for other countries and states, no more taking away our liberties and rights, no more mass media control, no more political greed, no more private federal reserve money machine, no more presidential executive orders, no more military in the streets, no more fe-ma camps, no more chem-trails, no more GMO food, no more . IT’S TIME TO WAKEUP AND TAKE BACK THIS ONCE GREAT LAND OF OPPORTUNITY>

Iv just about had it with the whole thing. People of this union have been so dumbed down by public schools, media and political lies they can’t think for themselves, nor do they belive whats right in front of their eyes. The horror.

although this is a virtual presidential speech it says a lot. If this were real I’m sure some of the gun grabbers in the audience would have tackled this guy and dragged him out of the room by the hair. Theres one thing our elite politicians hate, TRUTH. The meaning of Freedom is not being coerced into doing something against your will. We as state citizens are constantly being made to do things against our will. Even though there are things that people should not do out of goodness toward fellowmen/women and commonsense, we still are not rightfully free.

Commentators are always quick to link guns and emergency stores to dangerous  and paranoid actions that they consider to be tell tale signs someone is going to commit a crime. They always focus on these areas because it is a trait mostly seen in conservatives that know enough to question the governments’ ability to take care of every problem that emerges. In short, if you are not a Liberal that needs the government to make all of your decisions for you and care for you on a daily basis then there must be something wrong with you.

Any deviation from the norm of unpreparedness is a danger sign to these people that you are out of control and need to be stopped, detained and heavily medicated to assure compliance. Only when you are obedient to the state are you normal and safe. So what signs do you look for in a person or group that should make you suspicious?

The purchase of bullets by the thousands

If a person or group feels the need to purchase thousands of rounds of ammo in the belief they may need this to protect themselves and their family from some type of uncontrolled chaos in the future they are obviously troubled individuals. They need to be more sensible like the U.S. government that only buys 1.5 billion rounds of ammo, give or take a few million, that is only the bare minimum necessary for waging a 24 year war.

The purchasing of weapons by the dozen

If a person or group feels the need to have one firearm to protect themselves or their family due to lack of police protection, this is just irrational. And to have a dozen guns is bordering on paranoia. They need to be more like the U.S. government that only has 165.000 armed federal employees, give or take several thousand, and have several thousand automatic rifles on order as well as two million dollars worth of sniper rifles on order from Remington.

The storing of dehydrated and freeze dried foods for several months

If you perceive the potential need for stored food because of distribution problems or social chaos, having food stores for several months is just promoting the panic. You need to be more like the federal government and buy a billion dollars worth of freeze dried foods for “disaster relief operations”.

The building of underground bunkers for several people

The need for hiding underground in a bunker with several people is a clear sign that you are disturbed and very anti social and may be unbalanced. You need to have “shelters” like the U.S. government does that house at least a thousand people, and number no less then 150 nationwide to be considered normal.

Conclusion:

Never order ammo in amounts less than one billion rounds

Never buy weapons in quantities of less than one thousand

Never buy less than one billion dollars worth of freeze dried food

Never build underground shelters that hold less than one thousand persons

Anyone who prepares with less than these amounts should be considered a dangerous and paranoid doomsday prepper by government standards. Any amounts over this are government sanctioned and considered appropriate measures for normal persons to take.  http://projectchesapeake.wordpress.com/

This makes perfect sence, anything that the politicians deem illegal becomes more available through underground blackmarket sources. Where I live you can go to a flea market and buy a firearm off a vendor table. And, no permits are required for concealed carry. But we also have one of the lowest crime rates in the US. Then you also have to ask what if our court system is bought and paid for, will it vote the same way?

What should be included in his list of terrorist: -people that believe the fiat dollar is a worthless piece of paper.

Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/039795_gun_control_Supreme_Court_Constitution.html#ixzz2Pbh0Gj56
NaturalNews) Gun control zealots currently think they are winning. Connecticut has just passed a wildly unconstitutional new gun control law, and it was preceded by New York’s similarly-outrageous assault on private gun ownership liberties. Colorado, Maryland and California are all either working on gun control bills or have already passed various measures that are blatantly illegal in America.
What gun grabbers do not yet realize is that there are three powerful reasons why their gun control laws will soon be null and void:
Reason #1) Many laws will be struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court The U.S. Supreme Court already has a track record of striking down the several key gun control laws that have been put in place by cities or states.
For example, in District of Columbia v Heller, the Supreme Court struck down a D.C. law that criminalized the possession of guns in the home for the purpose of self defense.
In McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Supreme Court further confirmed that the Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms” is guaranteed to individuals under the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. In other words, any law that denies a citizen the right to keep and bear arms is simultaneously a denial of their Fourteenth Amendment rights… and is therefore unconstitutional and illegal in America.
These two landmark decisions, if correctly interpreted by the Supreme Court when challenges rise from recent gun restrictions in New York, Connecticut and elsewhere, will cause those laws to also be struck down as unconstitutional.
Reason #2) A Supreme Court decision would expose the illegitimacy of the court and reveal the outright criminality of the federal government If, somehow, the U.S. Supreme Court finds these new state gun restrictions laws to be “constitutional,” such a decision would be equivalent to a declaration that the court has openly abandoned its only real duty, which is to halt overreaching laws that violate the individual rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.
At this point, there would be widespread realization that the judiciary is an occupying enemy force acting in violation of their sworn oaths of office. If such a scenario unfolds, I theoretically predict, but do not condone, the likelihood that disgruntled individuals, having been stripped of their freedoms by a clearly illegal and unconstitutional judiciary, would take it upon themselves to assassinate U.S. Supreme Court justices who violated the Constitution as well as key high-level members of the federal government. Again, I’m not condoning this nor advocating it, because I do not believe violence is the appropriate path to a long-term solution in all this. However, I cannot deny the possibility of a decentralized, spontaneous armed response to the “long train of abuses” that liberty-loving Americans continue to suffer under today.
Any decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to nullify the Second Amendment would be seen by millions of Americans as nothing less than an outright declaration of war… and may spark an armed revolt against the tyranny. This may be precisely why DHS has purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition, many of which are hollow point rounds intended solely to cause maximum tissue damage against human targets on the streets of America.
Reason #3) A civil war may be underway before any of this makes it to the courts At some point, the law-abiding citizens of America, when repeatedly oppressed, provoked and denied justice under law, will reluctantly decide that “following the law” is irrelevant. They will take up arms and begin to physically fight for the liberties that are being incrementally stolen from them by tyrants at both the state and federal level.
Globalists appear to be attempting to trigger precisely this reaction. The gambit is to see if a small reactionary group of “terrorists” (i.e. anyone with a gun who fights against oppression) can be cajoled into committing acts of violence that would justify the declaration of Martial Law and a nationwide gun confiscation domestic military action. If such an act of resistance cannot be provoked, it can always be engineered and pulled off by the FBI which is already well-practiced at staging terrorists attacks in the USA, then recruiting hapless stooges to frame as “terrorist masterminds” to be arrested.
This is where the “stuff” really hits the fan, because we’ll see all-out war between various factions of gun grabbers vs. gun defenders. Big-city police will attempt to shoot and murder sheriffs. Patriot groups within the U.S. military will mutiny and take over entire units to protect and defend the Constitution. A military coup might target top administration officials in Washington D.C. Regional wars might break out between urban (gun control) and rural (gun rights) communities. And the big kicker? Obama might call in the United Nations to aid in “halting the terrorists,” setting off an international war against America and the Constitution. (This may be Obama’s ultimate end game.)
During war, you are not bound by laws During all of this, gun laws are irrelevant. If things degrade to a point where otherwise law-abiding citizens feel no choice but to pick up a rifle and start killing tyrants, then they are way past the point of politely following laws written on paper.
Furthermore, once the state declares you a “terrorist” — which the federal government has seemingly already done with veterans and gun owners — there is really no point in attempting to abide by any laws whatsoever because the government already claims to right to murder you without due process thanks to the NDAA and Obama’s “kill lists” of Americans to assassinate.
DHS specifically defines “terrorists” in America as: (SOURCE)
– Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack

– Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic”

– People who consider themselves “anti-global”

– Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”

– Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”

– People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”
Thus, at least half the U.S. population has already been deemed “terrorists.” According to the White House, this means they have no right to due process.
In a scenario when resistance fighters realize they will not be offered anything resembling due process, they will only fight harder and become even more aggressive in their tactics and stance. After all, if you are cornered but offered a fair trial that you can genuinely trust to be fair, you might simply surrender and avoid the risk of death. But if you are cornered by a regime that has already announced it’s going to call you an “enemy combatant” and claims to right to secretly kill you without any due process whatsoever, there is no additional risk in fighting to the death. You are dead anyway, logically speaking.
Even more, there is no moral hesitation against people in such a position resorting to tactics that would otherwise be scorned such as targeting family members of specific enemy targets. Even, imaginably, mass public suicide bombings would be an inevitable behavior of people who exist under extreme oppression with seemingly no recourse. This is the logic behind the mass bombings in Israel, of course. Whether right or wrong, the suicide bombers feel they have no recourse and have already been placed on government murder lists anyway.
By signing the NDAA and creating kill lists of Americans to murder with drones, Obama has actually radicalized whatever resistance might someday rise up in America if government oppression worsens. He has put laws and executive orders in place that have essentially pre-announced to gun owners and veterans, “You will not be given a fair trial. You will be named an enemy combatant and murdered by your own government.” This action by Obama is extremely irresponsible, arrogant and dangerous. It is precisely the kind of stance that could provoke a violent response that’s wildly multiplied far beyond what might have otherwise been attempted.
“If you make peaceful revolution impossible you make violent revolution inevitable.” – John F. Kennedy
Keep in mind that in the recent Rand Paul filibuster in the U.S. Senate which sought answers to whether the President believed he had the power to kill Americans on U.S. soil using military drones, the official answer that was eventually received still claimed Americans who were “actively engaged” in anti-government activities could be killed without due process.
“Actively engaged” could mean anything, including blogging on the web or taking photographs of government buildings. Thus, the White House already claims the power to kill practically any American at any time, without due process or even producing a single shred of evidence against the person.
War is the absence of civility War is, philosophically, the complete absence of civil law. Although the UN has tried to set “rules of war,” the U.S. government routinely and habitually violates those rules in numerous ways… torture, for example, as well as the use of weapons of mass destruction (depleted uranium).
A breakout of war means all attempts at civility have failed and one or both parties believes they are left with no other option but attempted violence to achieve their goals.
That’s how America was born, by the way: by the desperate actions of a determined minority of colonists deciding they had endured enough suffering and oppression. They made a joint decision to flat out start killing (British) tyrants, realizing this was their last remaining option for achieving liberty.
Due to this application of strategic violence for a noble cause, the British empire was eventually forced to withdraw because it could not physically commit a sufficient level of violence to achieve lasting control over the colonies. Importantly, even though the British won most of the military battles, they still lost the war for numerous tactical and sociological reasons. This is important because it indicates that military might does not equal military victory when people are defending their lives, their liberties and their core beliefs. (Just ask the Afghans.)
Delusional members of the radical left think they can suppress freedom by writing words on paper The reason all this really matters is because the radical left is wildly delusional on all this, believing that if certain gun control words and phrases can be written on paper and ratified by members of government, then those words become a reality and all the privately-held guns, ammo and freedoms simply vanish from existence.
This is precisely the same sort of delusional thinking offered up by the left’s advocacy of signs that say things like “gun free zone,” ridiculously believing that words on a sign will magically alter reality.
They think the same thing about words on paper held at the state capitol. But history has shown that words are fleeting, but liberty lives forever. While gun control zealots may temporarily succeed in creating artificial constructs of their favorite words (i.e. “laws”), all that’s really happening in the physical world is that gun owners are burying their guns and ammo while mentally preparing to retrieve them when necessary to defend the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Gun prohibition will fail just like marijuana prohibition Guns do not disappear simply because they are banned. They go underground. Everyone on the left should easily understand this point because most of them smoke illegal pot from time to time, and they know how easy it is to purchase marijuana even though the substance is criminalized according to federal law. Once guns are added to the list of banned objects, they will only become even easier to acquire through off-the-books networks of distributors and resellers, none of whom will pay taxes or report any purchases through government “background checks” systems.
The best way to drive guns into the hands of criminals is to criminalize guns. Gun grabbers on the left are almost mentally retarded when it comes to anticipating the real-world impacts of their laws. Their intention is to eliminate guns, but intentions do not drive reality: economics does. Economics is the study of human decision making and behavior, by the way, not the study of money.
Driving guns into the underground economy will effectively construct a huge infrastructure of underground gun production, distribution and delivery, allowing anyone who can buy pot right now to be able to buy guns in the near future. Gun shops that presently follow federal laws for background checks will be put out of business and replaced by underground gun smugglers who follow no laws whatsoever.
In response, the federal government will multiply the budget of the ATF and declare a “war on guns” that will be roughly as successful as today’s miserable “war on drugs” — a police state fiasco that has done nothing more than fill the prisons with innocent victims while justifying the outrageous growth of police state agencies like the DEA.
Leftists who advocate gun control are really advocating a massive expansion of the police state while invoking the organic, spontaneous economics of underground trade. The state cannot stop people from getting what they really want. The failed war on drugs proves that. It’s far smarter for the state to decriminalize the trade, regulate it and tax it — and that’s where gun sales are right now, before any new gun control laws are put in place.
Conclusions My conclusion in all this is straightforward: The best “gun control” (from the perspective of those wanting more gun control) is to keep guns legal and readily available through legal retail shops that abide by government background checks and are licensed by the ATF. In this manner, gun sales are taxed and tracked, and it avoids the rise of underground gun-running gangs.
The worst form of gun control is to criminalize guns and drive the entire gun economy into the underground, where no sales are tracked or taxed and consumer demand will inevitably drive the spontaneous creation of a massive underground “gun gang” distribution network. This will have the effect of making guns far easier for criminals to acquire, and the net effect of that will be more violent crimes committed with guns, which is exactly what the gun control zealots claim they wish to prevent.
Thus, the outcome that is desired by gun control advocates will be the exact opposite of what actually unfolds. Such is the nature of “unforeseen consequences.”
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, my friends. Try to make sure you are not blindly running down it.

Does this not sound like your average black op zio banker plan of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” scenario? I can see merit in such a plan by TPTB to create a condition where the outcome would warrant U-N/N-A-T-O forces to control a civil unrest situation. What would wanna be free people do if living in a metro/urban area when they can not get to $$ and food was scarce while a suppressive regime was taking control of their lives? Wait a sec, isn’t that happenening now one step at a time? All wars are banker wars and we all work for the bankers.

military police

This article was written by Tom Chatham and originally published at Project Chesapeake

The past several years the federal government has  embarked on a strategy of militarizing the local law enforcement  agencies around the country. They have provided the money and equipment  to give these agencies the appearance of small military units that act  in a manner far removed from the community service of days past. This  has pushed many local departments away from the friendly approach they  utilized in the past to serve the public interest.

I have seen it myself in the local department  where I live. In a county with less than 20,000 people we now have a  police force with almost 50 officers and the sheriff wants at least 100  more auxiliary police officers. What all of these police are for in this  sparsely populated area has yet to be answered. The sheriff has also  made it a point to hire deputies from outside the county to ensure there  is no close connection between the police and the local community.

This is exactly what the federal government  wants, to ensure the local police will not be in a position to side with  locals if anything happens. It is in the governments’ best interest to  drive a wedge between the communities and law enforcement. The  government is apparently designing a confrontation between citizens and  the government and they are using local agencies to assist.

A recent purchase of shooting targets by DHS  met with outrage by the population when the pictures on them were  discovered to be pregnant women, children and old people. It is now  known that the designs were not from the target maker but in fact came  from law enforcement. This is how you desensitize people to kill others.  You reduce the enemy to nothing more than a paper target to prevent  hesitation when the time comes to shoot them.

If there is a financial crisis that shuts  down the banks for any period of time and prevents the use of plastic  forms of money, there will almost certainly be chaos nationwide. There  will eventually be riots and looting as people who are dependant on the  state for basic necessities start taking what they need. The first line  of defense in cases like this are the local law enforcement officers.  They will have the task of maintaining order in a quickly deteriorating  situation. Many of these confrontations will be violent and require  deadly force.

What happens if chaos breaks out and the  police have very little or no ammo to use in the preservation of order?  Will officers be willing to go out into hostile crowds with little or no  weapons to protect themselves? What will violent criminals and gangs do  if they realize police have no ammo to shoot them with? Will officers  show up to work in circumstances like this if they know they may get  killed with little in the way of protecting themselves?

With the support of federal funds and  equipment, and with ever more instruction from DHS, many local agencies  have become distant and even hostile to the local populations. If  something chaotic happens these locals will be less inclined to assist  local police and hostile actions will become more likely. This will  ultimately lead to the failure of local law enforcement to maintain  order in a deteriorating situation. So what would this lead to?

DHS has ordered a great deal of ammo in  recent months. Much more than is needed in normal operations. This has  helped to dry up the ammo market preventing not only civilians from  buying ammo but also police departments nationwide. Since many law  enforcement agencies around the country use the same calibers, the  massive DHS purchases have led to the shortages in the local agencies.  If DHS were really working with local agencies to insure the peace they  would be willing to make some of this government stockpile available to  local agencies for normal operations.

If chaos breaks out and local agencies are  left to their own demise they may run out of ammo early in the game. In  some instances it is likely that criminal elements will provoke gun  fights with police with the sole purpose of expending their limited  supplies of ammo. After several weeks of a slowly developing crisis,  many departments may indeed run out of ammo. This would cause an  explosion of violence and criminal activity. It would eventually cause  people to call on the intervention of federal forces to regain order  when local agencies fail.

This is what some have stated the federal  government wants to do. Allow chaos to spiral out of control until  citizens scream for government control and the government will be  waiting on the sidelines with the men and equipment to move in and take  charge. After the failure of the local departments the federals will be  seen as saviors and nothing they do initially will be questioned.

With the local agencies rendered impotent the  federal government will have complete control. This could be one reason  for the massive ammo purchases by DHS. If the ammo shortage in the law  enforcement community continues and DHS makes no attempt to bolster  local supplies then it will be a good indication of their intentions. At  some critical time DHS may offer the local agencies full access to ammo  but only if the agencies relinquish their authority and are absorbed  into DHS. Local agencies that have subverted their local community  support will find it difficult to maintain order since the bonds between  law enforcement and community have been broken. All of the actions now  being taken by law enforcement nationwide will ensure violence if a  crisis arises and the probable failure of local agencies. The people  should be prepared for that eventuality.

 

 

Try and imagine what could happen today in the event of an economic collapse. More people, more guns and more military in the streets. People protesting for food, work and shelter. Don’t think the government will provide anything, we have become a nanny state expecting a handout. If the state can provide it they can take it away. If everyone prepared for this event the outcome would have been different. But, the on set of the depression was kept secret from the masses while the rich pillaged all they could. Don’t expect to be told it’s happening, get prepared while you still can. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Given that normally there is some disinformation/misinformation involved in writting stories such as this, like fear monger A. Jones, we have to take it with a grain of salt. But, even if half has truth to it we have to be concerned and prepared. BTW when the constitution (contract) is mentioned we do not have an organic constitution. It was abolished in 1862 when congress walked out (sine die) of the house. At that time there was no government, no congress and no president. When they did return under dictorial powers (EO1) the US was a for-profit corporation with a ceo and board of directors, more on this later.

 

Report: Realistic Urban Training is DHS and DOD “Conducting Desensitizing Exercises”

Mac Slavo
February 12th, 2013
SHTFplan.com

 

Just a couple years ago we reported that the U.S. military was involved in war gaming scenarios that included training for such things as large scale economic collapse and civil unrest. Photos from the training exercises showed simulated situations that included protesters holding up “We Need Food Now” signs. It was a clear sign that the government is preparing for just such an event, and that they were training military personnel to respond in the capacity of a domestic police force.

The warnings we and others issued were ignored by most of the population and dismissed by many as nothing more than conspiracy theory and fear mongering.

A few years on, the military continues to step up exercises focused on urban deployment and as recently as last month held live exercises in heavily populated US metropolitan areas.

Residents of Miami and Houston were treated to troop mobilizations, machine gun fire, and gunships flying over their cities. After concerned callers reported the activities to local news stations, the media quickly moved to calm fears of a terrorist attack or invasion. They smiled while they did it and shrugged off the unprecedented displays as just your average, everyday military exercise.

Except, of course, the US military, up until recently, has never openly trained in U.S. cities, and especially not in scores of cities with training spread over such a short period of time.

Which begs the question, why are the military and local law enforcement holding realistic urban training exercises on the streets of America when they could do it at any of the hundreds of training facilities around the world?

Via: The Daily CruxBurning Platform

I was once stationed at Camp Lejuene, NC.  As a Navy Corpsman, I helped care for Marines.  I tell you this because inevitably there will be those that assume I hold some anti-military motive.

At no time during my time there were “realistic urban training” exercises conducted in towns and cities.  This is a recent development.

The training has been coordinated with local, county and state agencies and officials, including the Ridgeland police and fire departments, according to a Marine Corps news release.

Although there is no danger, Farao said residents should stay away if they see training under way or uniformed personnel.

Realistic Urban Training is happening all over the U.S.  

In Miami, Florida on January 26, 2013, Army Backhawk helicopters swooped through the city at night, firing door-guns and chasing make-believe bad guys like something out of an action movie.  The fired blanks echoed off of the buildings, scaring many residents into taking cover.  The local news reported excitedly about the exercise, stating it was only a drill and for residents not to be concerned. However, there was no journalistic follow up asking hard questions.  Such as, who authorized an exercise without informing the public?  Why conduct this type of training in a populated U.S. city and put citizens at risk?  Isn’t this a violation of Posse Comitatus?  No hard follow up questions were asked, and to my knowledge, have not been since.

Not even when the same exercise occurred in Houston, Texas on January 29, 2013.   The U.S. Army along with other agencies took over the Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston on Monday. Alarmed residents called police and complained about gunshots and helicopters.  No details were provided about the training.  Watch the KTRK-TV Houston report and hear how alarmed residents responded after hearing gunshots and seeing military helicopters flying over their homes.

According to Sgt. 1st Class Michael Noggle, an Army spokesman based at Fort Bragg, N.C., “We were invited by the city of Galveston to conduct joint training exercises to enhance the effectiveness of both services in order to better protect the residents of Galveston.”

He went on to say in an email that “The purpose of the realistic urban training is to give our Special Operators an opportunity to hone their skills in a controlled, but unfamiliar, realistic urban environment that cannot be replicated with the bare-boned facades found on military installation ranges.”

I’ve highlighted a few examples, but there are more.  In a search I came upon these others.  Los Angeles, CA,  Plainville and Worchester, Massachusetts.  As reported in the other stories, residents were unaware of the drills until helicopters swooped over their neighborhoods. And here’s more: Minneapolis, MN, and this in East Saint Louis, MO.  There are many more, but these links provide a foundation for further research.

I spoke with a high-ranking, military source in DHS.

Preferring to remain unnamed for obvious reasons, he told me, “DHS and DOD are conducting desensitizing exercises all across the U.S.,” he paused, then added, “we’re being prepared for mass civil unrest in major U.S. cities.  DOD will be expected to help – when we’re requested.”

I asked if there was a timeline for expecting civil unrest in our cities and why should we expect it to begin with.

I was told that there were many reasons, but that the continued devaluation of our currency, the predicted history-setting prices for gasoline this summer and the continued gun control debate are forming a perfect storm of civil discontent.  When this storm hits, it will most assuredly produce mass casualties.  When does DHS expect this to happen? 

This summer.

From a high-ranking source deep within DHS, who has strong DOD ties, we are being told that joint DOD-local law enforcement exercises are to desensitize us to military occupation.  When asked if there was any concern about violating Posse Comitatus, he stated “no concern at all,” and added, “That’s been a non-issue for a long time.”

Source: The Allegiant

We are hearing similar reports from DHS, DOD, and law enforcement sources known by numerous investigators and reporters in alternative media. Many of the sources have requested to remain anonymous, prompting skeptics to call it bunk. However, it’s hard to believe that there is nothing to this. Furthermore, if you were privy to details that your government was about to implement a massive police state and past whistle blowers were imprisoned and had their lives destroyed, would you be willing to share your name and put your family in harm’s way?

As noted by Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones in a recent report at Infowars.com, there is a strong possibility that whatever the US government is preparing for has been orchestrated by the elite, who hope to benefit in the form of money, resources and power, something we’ve seen throughout history:

Every indication clearly suggests that authorities in the United States are preparing for widespread civil unrest. This trend has not emerged by accident – it is part of a tried and tested method used by the banking elite to seize control of nations, strip them of their assets, and absorb them into the new world order.

 There is a crucial economic imperative as to why the elite is seeking to engineer and exploit social unrest.

One of the final steps of the process, the “IMF riot,” detailed how the elite would plan for mass civil unrest ahead of time that would have the effect of scaring off investors and causing government bankruptcies.

“This economic arson has its bright side – for foreigners, who can then pick off remaining assets at fire sale prices,” writes Palast, adding, “A pattern emerges. There are lots of losers but the clear winners seem to be the western banks and US Treasury.”

In other words, the banking elite creates the very economic environment – soaring interest rates, spiraling food prices, poverty, lower standards of living – that precipitates civil unrest – and then like a vulture swoops down to devour what remains of the country’s assets on the cheap.

We have already seen this process unfold in places like Bolivia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Greece and Argentina. Next on the chopping block are Spain, Italy, Britain and France – all of which have seen widespread riots over the last two years.

Given the clear economic motive for stirring unrest in the United States, we’d expect to see preparations for domestic disorder in numerous different guises – and indeed the signs are everywhere. 

Full Infowars Report

Most Americans cannot possibly fathom an America where the economy has collapsed, the dollar is valueless, and food is so expensive that it can’t be had by the majority of the populace.

They can’t imagine any situation that would require the deployment of military soldiers into their towns and cities.

They are clueless to the existence of the National Defense Authorization Act which legalizes the indefinite detention of terror suspects. They think the Patriot Act is legislation that applies only to Al Queda. They don’t know, nor do they care, that President Obama has signed numerous Executive Orders designed for continuity of government operations and martial law.

None of them realize that the President himself is now creating kill lists and justifications for why American citizens can be targeted by military drone strikes without charge or trial.

For these people, with their heads buried in the sand, America today is the same as it has always been.

When their idealistic paradigm of stable 9-5 employment, ample retirement funds, weekend barbecues, and Constitutional protections comes to end, what do you think they are going to do?

What will they do should stock markets melt down, the US dollar crashes or the economy collapses to Great Depression levels?

They will panic. They will riot in the streets. They will turn violent. Their whole world will be turned upside down and devolve into violence and bloodshed.

The government knows this. Homeland security knows this. The military knows this. Any student of history knows this.

We are now being desensitized to the response should it ever come to pass.

 In 1996, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer wrote a piece titled “Disarm the Citizenry, But Not Yet” in which he stated that:
Quote:

In fact, the assault weapons ban will have no significant effect either on the crime rate or on personal security. Nonetheless, it is a good idea … Given the frontier history and individualist ideology of the United States, however, this will not come easily. It certainly cannot be done radically. It will probably take one, maybe two generations. It might be 50 years before the United States gets to where Britain is today. Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is a symbolic — purely symbolic — move in that direction. Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.

Even the Department of Justice acknowledged the fact that the so-called ‘Assault Weapons’ ban was ineffective as a tool to fight crime. In a study titled “Updated Assessment of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban: Impacts on Gun Markets and Gun Violence, 1994-2003,” the DOJ found that:

Quote:
Should it be renewed, the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. AWs were rarely used in gun crimes even before the ban.

 

 

I have to say this gun grab battle is tearing the people apart. The term “Divide and Conquer” comes to mind. Also would a civilian force as big as the military be used overseas, not.

Are All Those Guns and Ammunition for Obama’s Civilian National Security Force?

Speculation abounds surrounding the 2 billion rounds of ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security and other national alphabet agencies in recent years. Moreover, as the White House and their cohorts in Congress contemplate the disarming of American citizens, the very assault weapons purported to be so dangerous in the hands of law abiding gun owners are being purchased in mass quantities by local and federal law enforcement agencies.

So what is the purpose and motivation behind the government’s continued efforts to stockpile so much firepower?

One frightening theory could explain what the President and his national security apparatus are up to.

Many of you will remember a story I broke a long time ago – about presidential candidate Barack Obama’s little-noticed announcement that, if elected in 2008, he wanted to create a “civilian national security force” as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department.

Here’s what he actually said at a campaign stop in Colorado July 2, 2008:

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Could what we see happening now in the Department of Homeland Security be the beginning of Obama’s dream and our constitutional nightmare?

We never heard another mention of Obama’s “civilian national security force” again. Not in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012.

But that brings us up to 2013 and the highly unusual stockpiling of firearms and ammo by Homeland Security – firearms and ammo that Obama would like to deny to ordinary citizens who are not members of his domestic army.

Well, I hate to say it, but I may have predicted this, too.

In a Halloween column last fall, I stated that, if re-elected, Obama would “declare a full-scale war on his domestic opposition.”

I wasn’t joking. I was deadly serious – so serious, in fact, that I did something I pledged I would never do: Vote for Mitt Romney. It was a matter of self-defense and self-preservation. I said then that a second term of Obama might mean we would never see another free and fair election in America. (I’m not even sure we saw one in 2012.) I suggested due process would go the way of the horse and buggy. I said I expected Obama would move to shut down or destroy all independent media. I even speculated that his biggest critics would eventually be rounded up in the name of national security.

Think about it.

Why does the civilian Department of Homeland Security need billions of rounds of ammunition?

This is the agency that is responsible for policing the border. But it doesn’t.

This is the agency that is responsible for catching terrorists. But it doesn’t.

So why does Homeland Security need so many weapons and enough hollow-point rounds to plug every American six times?

Excerpted from Josefph Farah of WND

The official explanation?

Target practice.

As for concern about the type of bullets — hollow points, which expand upon impact — the statement said the type is “standard issue” and is used during “mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions.” (link)

While the majority of Americans will take this explanation at face value, there are some key facts that suggest the Department of Homeland Security is mobilizing for a significant future action against the American people.

  • The US military has been actively war-gaming worst-case scenarios that include economic collapse and civil unrest, going so far as to simulate wide-scale food riots.
  • Just last month the military deployed gunships over Miami and executed a training exercise with local police departments. A few days later, similar exercises were held in Houston, TX. Last year these “exercises” also included ground forces, armored personnel carriers and tanks on the streets of St. Louis.
  • Despite overwhelming opposition, there is an overt and focused movement to disarm Americans of their right to bear semi-automatic personal defense rifles and any other firearms deemed dangerous to the public. Those calling for this disarmament qualify their positions by claiming these weapons are not necessary for sporting, hunting, or personal defense. As if this provision of the US Constitution doesn’t even exist, there is a total blackout on the fundamental intent of the Second Amendment, which allows for citizens to bear arms to protect themselves against tyrannical government.
  • Heavily armored vehicles have been spotted all over the country, and many local law enforcement agencies have taken possession of these vehicles, normally reserved for military engagements, and have put them to use in neighborhoods and communities around America.
  • Congress has authorized the deployment of some 30,000 surveillance drones in the skies of America, to be available for use by intelligence agencies by 2015.
  • The National Security Agency is building a massive spy center capable of recording, aggregating and analyzing every digital interaction on the planet – phones, internet, purchasing patterns, travel, and even what we say in the privacy of our own homes. A 30 year veteran of the NSA says the data mining program is so vast it will “create an Orwellian state.”
  • The US government, in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, has created legislation that directly targets American citizens. The Patriot Act makes it possible for anyone who is identified as attempting to subvert government legitimacy as a terrorist, and also allows for the warrantless wiretapping of everyone for any reason. Under the Patriot Act and expanded government definitions, just about anyone now qualifies as a domestic terrorist.
  • The National Defense Authorization Act takes the Patriot Act even further, allowing the government to detain anyone suspected of being a terrorist indefinitely and without trial – this includes American citizens living in the United States.
  • And, as Joseph Farah points out, the President specifically claimed he would create a civilian national security police force as large as the US military. If he meant it, then we’re talking about 2 million or so civilians that will be armed, deputized and backed by the government. To do what? We’re not quite sure, but apparently we need these civilians for something important, or else the President wouldn’t have brought it up.

These are but a few examples of what our government has been up to. There are hundreds of others.

Now put all those together and the complete puzzle begins to emerge.

This surveillance infrastructure and control grid are being designed not for foreign terrorists or rogue nations that may do harm to America. They have been designed for you.

You, my fellow American, are the enemy.

It’s been building up to this for years. TPTB now have all the equipment in place, drones, sound cannons, cameras, satellite surveillance, militarized police, re-ed camps  etc, etc. Attacking 2A has the most effect on american citizens. It may boil down to either your for freedom and liberty or against it. If the freedom loving people raise arms before their organized and prepared there will be hell to pay. And, it appears most of the dc politicians are bought and paid for. Sad that it has built up to this.

 

People question how someone can murder 20 children. It happens everyday across the globe, hundreds of innocent men, women and children killed for a political agenda. The US has their hands drenched with blood that can never be washed clean. CiA black ops to control the masses into giving up their rights, liberty and freedoms. In this case your 2A right to protect yourself and family. This is not easy to wrap your brain around but, try thinking with both half’s. Its called whole brain thinking. And there are people in this world that are pure evil and would go to ant lengths for power over their worker slaves.

I certainly don’t believe all I read, hear or watch but, if only half of this is correct; we’re in trouble.

And This

Reeducated, are you?

Reeducated, are you?

It seems that everything is on track and the go ahead plans are good to go. There was the first WTC bombing attempt, the murrah building in OK city, the 911 WTC inside diabolical and a bunch of shooting spree incidence staggered throughout from the start. I’m talking about the execution of the complete destruction of a free society and the overall loss of liberty. You do know there is no turning back now; their plan for domination will come to a head in less than five years. It’s on the fast track because the PTB realize more and more average people are coming to their senses as you read this. You think you’re a slave now just wait a few years and you will really know what it means to be a numbered free range labor slave. Maybe you can even get a tag stapled to your ear. A big chuck of your hard earned currency is already taken without your consent through the irs and governmental illegal taxation. If you really dug into it you would find you don’t own anything you think you do. Strange how income disappears back into the cesspool from which it came. We as a people don’t know what it means to be totally free because we haven’t been since the War Between the States (countries).  Elections have been rigged for a predestined outcome to benefit those would be rulers of the world plan. BTW there is only one political party. The 99% will all be on the same level, poor and the 1% filling in as the ruling rich class. Your masters, so to speak. What a wonderful friggin country we live in. This is great place for those that just want to scrape by and keep their mouths shut. Everyone talks about fema reeducation camps, too late. I’ve been reeducated and it’s not the way they would like it to be. It’s the fed banking cartel, the corrupt government, 9-11, gun control, profit hoarding corporations and Wall Street, black cia ops, the false religions, the war on religion, Iranophobia,  ndaa, GMO food, government subsidized false flag attacks, the irs, Zionism, msm news, dumbed down education system, empire building, war on drugs, anything for a buck politicians, courts and corrupt judges, chemtrail spraying, population drugging, war on Muslims, haarp etc., etc. and all the other BS they throw at us. The only way they could reeducate me now is a bullet in the side of my head by a US government sponsored death squad. The plan of complete control is working flawlessly; the people are too dull to get it. And, that is all part of the plan. The masonic white and black checker balance is off the floor, we are the last out of four corners of the world to be conjured. The plan for our demise is approaching fast. Unless the good people of this once proud nation wake-up stand their ground our freedom and liberties will come to screeching halt. Is it too late for you to be reeducated to see what is really happening, I don’t know. Why don’t you find out for yourself? I do know one stage will lead to the next. I’ve been reeducated by the system and that may be part of their plan for civil unrest revolutionary war.

The Psy-Ops War on Preppers: This Has Become a Two-For-the-Price-of-One Crisis

First of all, where is the headquarters of this “Doomsday Preppers Movement” I’ve been reading about?  And where can I sign up? I didn’t realize there was an organized movement, one deserving of capital letters.  Who is the leader of this “movement”?  I’d like to meet him (or her) immediately!

The propaganda machine is not only going after guns in the wake of the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School – this has become a two-for-the-price-of-one crisis, allowing the government and media to yet again, demonize preppers.

Psychological Warfare:

Various techniques are used, by any set of groups, and aimed to influence a target audience’s value systems, belief systems, emotions, motives, reasoning, or behavior. It is used to induce confessions or reinforce attitudes and behaviors favorable to the originator’s objectives, and are sometimes combined with black operations or false flag tactics. Target audiences can be governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.

Yesterday the mainstream media began churning out articles about Nancy Lanza, the mother of the shooter, Adam Lanza.  When you read the following quotes, ask yourself: “How many of these comments could describe ME?”

A few descriptive quotes:

  • Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world. (Riehl World View)
  • According to reports, Nancy Lanza was a so-called ‘prepper’, a part of the survivalist movement which urges individuals to prepare for the breakdown of society by training with weapons and hoarding food and other supplies.  ( The UK Independent)
  • Reports are starting to emerge of the troubled young man and his unusual upbringing.  (Yahoo)
  • Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping firm who worked on the family’s home, said she was an avid gun collector: ‘She told me she would go target shooting with her kids.’ (UK Daily Mail)
  • Marsha Lanza described Nancy as ‘self-reliant’.( The UK Independent)
  • He was reportedly homeschooled by his mother, a school principal and gun enthusiast, who wasn’t satisfied with the education her son was receiving.. (Yahoo)
  • As America searches for answers, investigators are turning towards Nancy Lanza’s supposed identification as a survivalist.  (Yahoo)
  • Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’.  (UK Daily Mail)
  • Mother of Sandy Hook school gunman Adam Lanza was a ‘prepper’ survivalist preparing for economic and social collapse, say reports. ( The UK Independent)
  • Mrs Lanza is thought to have trained her sons, Adam and Ryan to shoot, even taking them to local ranges. ( The UK Independent)
  • ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense. She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’  (UK Daily Mail)

Gee…they say this stuff like it’s a BAD thing.

Let’s see.

  • Stockpiles (or hoards) food….check.
  • Takes children target shooting….check.
  • Preparing for economic and/or social collapse….check.
  • Serious about home defense….check.
  • Home is well-fortified against criminals….check.
  • Skilled with weapons….check.
  • Survivalist philosophy….check.
  • Self-reliant….check.
  • Believes that we are capable of educating our children at home….check.
 

Nancy Lanza’s description could apply to nearly any prepper.  Preppers have been cast in an ugly light for quite some time.  We are painted as camo-clad survivalists, clenching a knife in our teeth while unloading an automatic weapon into some real or imagined threat.  After our Rambo-esque rampage, we will crouch in the forest by a campfire, shoveling down an MRE while glaring suspiciously into the dark, a large Katana hunting knife close at hand with which to dispatch the next enemy.

The assault on preppers through the media is becoming more and more focused.  Let’s look at some recent examples.

We were described last month by emergency manager Valerie Lucus-MacEwen as “socially selfish” – even though the existence of prepared people makes her supplies go further to help the unprepared.  In an editorial meant for other emergency managers, Ms. Lucus-MacEwen arrogantly asserted, “You might wonder why someone like me, who has been in the business of encouraging disaster preparedness for a very long time, is so critical of people who are doing just that. It’s because they are being socially selfish – preparing themselves and the hell with everyone else.  Instead of spending time and energy making changes that would benefit the larger community, in their very narrow focus of loyalty they are more concerned about themselves.”

The National Geographic program Doomsday Preppers also has had a lot to do with the demonization of preppers – it’s a full-court press propaganda attack against preppers.  The program finds the most outrageous examples of preparedness possible and edits to make them look foolish.  An article on the American Preppers Network explains the modus operandi:

The show severely skews Preppers in an effort that can be summed up as “making good television”.  This is evident not only through viewing the show itself, but through the format they have built the show around.  Some highlights of that format include:

  • Featuring one Prepper for 15 minutes only, ensuring that you don’t get too comfortable with them or learn very much about them
  • Requiring each guest to pigeon-hole themselves into one thing they are preparing for – almost always a “doomsday” scenario
  • Creating conflict and drama via their “experts” who review the segment and then condemn or condone what the Prepper has done – all within the context of the “one thing” they’re preparing for

Do you really believe that each of the families on that show only focus on one particular scenario?  No – they are portrayed in a way to marginalize the philosophy of preparedness.  We, as preppers, are a threat to the powers that be.

One participant on the show, David Sarti, learned that his appearance could have serious ramifications.  Mr. Sarti “took one for the team” when, only days after the program aired, however, David Sarti was declared “mentally incompetent”….and his guns were seized.  All of them.  Mr. Sarti, who has no criminal record, is no longer allowed to own guns.  He tells his story here.

Apparently, the constitution no longer applies to those who are categorized as preppers.

The accusation of insanity came after he went to see his cardiologist for some chest pains and shortness of breath.  So far, it sounds sane and rational to me.  The cardiologist, Dr. Andre C. Olivier, whose name and contact information I am delighted to publish, had Mr. Sarti held at the hospital for psychiatric evaluation and broke doctor patient confidentiality by contacting the authorities.

Then it really went to hell on a greased slide.  Mr. Sarti, because of his stay in the psychiatric unit, was then declared “mentally incompetent”.  His very large collection of guns was then stolen removed from his possession.  He is no longer allowed to own weapons.

Earlier this month, Maryland resident Terry Porter had his home descended upon by 150 armed federal agents and local police officers. The raid also included helicopters, SWAT crews, armored vehicles and excavation equipment.

His crimes?  He was known as a prepper, he was unhappy with the reelection of Barack Obama, and he owned guns. He “openly admitted being a prepper.”

So, why all the vilification? Why are preppers the new “boogeymen”?  Why are we being pigeonholed as people who homeschool our kids and turn them into mass murderers of elementary school students?

Simple…because we don’t NEED help.  We do not require the assistance of the government.  We don’t need to line up for 5 hours to wait for a paltry bottle of water and an MRE after a hurricane strikes. We don’t call 911 and hide in a closet waiting for the police to arrive.

Preppers threaten the very existence of all of the social safety nets that are set up.  We can’t be easily manipulated by the offer of a free flu shot and a grocery store gift card in exchange for our weapons.  We think critically and don’t automatically accept the programming of the mainstream media, whose job it is to provide people with the opinions that they should hold.  We don’t shovel in the HFCS-laden genetically modified crap, otherwise known as “food”, killing our brain cells and dumbing us down into cattle to be easily led to slaughter.

We are the last bastion of independent self-reliant thinkers.  And the powers that be are very afraid of those who think for themselves, rather than regurgitating the media-presented party line.

I don’t know why Adam Lanza went on a rampage and killed 26 people last week.  But I do know that it wasn’t because his mother was a homeschooling prepper who stored up food and taught him to fire a gun at a paper target.

Gun Facts You Should Know

 

GUN CONTROL MEANS USING BOTH HANDS

Gun Facts:

* Guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year—or about 6,850 times a day. (1)

* This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives. (2)

* Even anti-gun Clinton researchers concede that guns are used 1.5 million times annually for self-defense. According to the Clinton Justice Department, there are as many as 1.5 million cases of self-defense with a firearm every year. The National Institute of Justice published this figure in 1997 as part of “Guns in America “—a study which was authored by noted anti-gun criminologists Philip Cook and Jens Ludwig. (3)

 

* Concealed carry laws have reduced murder and crime rates in the states that have enacted them. According to a comprehensive study which reviewed crime statistics in every county in the United States from 1977 to 1992, states which passed concealed carry laws reduced their rate of murder by 8.5%, rape by 5%, aggravated assault by 7% and robbery by 3%. (4)

 

* Anti-gun journal pronounces the failure of the Brady law. One of the nation’s leading anti-gun medical publications, the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that the Brady registration law has failed to reduce murder rates. In August 2000, JAMA reported that states implementing waiting periods and background checks did “not [experience] reductions in homicide rates or overall suicide rates.” (5)

 

* Twice as many children are killed playing football in school than are murdered by guns. That’s right. Despite what media coverage might seem to indicate, there are more deaths related to high school football than guns. In a recent three year period, twice as many football players died from hits to the head, heat stroke, etc. (45), as compared with students who were murdered by firearms (22) during that same time period. (6)

 

* More guns, less crime. In the decade of the 1990s, the number of guns in this country increased by roughly 40 million—even while the murder rate decreased by almost 40% percent. (7)

 

* Accidental gun deaths in the home decreased by almost 40 percent as well. (8)

 

* CDC admits there is no evidence that gun control reduces crime. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has long been criticized for propagating questionable studies which gun control organizations have used in defense of their cause. But after analyzing 51 studies in 2003, the CDC concluded that the “evidence was insufficient to determine the effectiveness of any of these [firearms] laws.” (9)

 

* Gun shows are NOT a primary source of illegal guns for criminals. According to two government studies, the National Institute of Justice reported in 1997 that “less than two percent [of criminals] reported obtaining [firearms] from a gun show.” (10)

 

* And the Bureau of Justice Statistics revealed in 2001 that less than one percent of firearm offenders acquired their weapons at gun shows. (11)

 

Several polls show that Americans are very pro-gun. Several scientific polls indicate that the right to keep and bear arms is still revered—and gun control disdained—by a majority of Americans today. To mention just a few recent polls:

* In 2002, an ABC News poll found that almost three-fourths of the American public believe that the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the rights of “individuals” to own guns. (12)

* Zogby pollsters found that by a more than 3 to 1 margin, Americans support punishing “criminals who use a gun in the commission of a crime” over legislation to “ban handguns.” (13)
