Psychological Warfare and Operations Other Than War
Packaging The Policy
In Part One and Part Two we looked at the phenomenon of rampant use of S.W.A.T. teams across the nation as they are being deployed in routine police work. We looked closely into the SWAT killing of Jose Guerena in Pima County, Arizona, at Tucson on May 05, 2011. We then looked at the beginnings of the military-police state infrastructure as announced during the 1990s. We looked at topics such as Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and we intimated the role each plays in establishing the infrastructure for a military-police state interfaced at the Federal, State, County, and Local levels, so as to include every arena of police work on all levels of government in what Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen in 1999 called “an unequivocal and unambiguous chain of responsibility, authority and accountability.”
That of course is Govlish for “chain of command”.

But in the first two parts of this series we did not really look closely at NORTHCOM, so let’s squeeze in one little bit about that military bastion…
…and ask, what is going on at Ft. Stewart, Georgia?
…why, it is of course the training of tens of thousands of combat troops who will operate under NORTHCOM for OOTW (Operations Other Than War) on U.S. soil, as noted in Part Two. They will be stationed on U.S. soil and tasked with doing things which may surprise the American people. (And remember, NORTHCOM is directly linked now to DHS and the entire Top Secret America mechanism, with interfaced databases to implement infallibly Secretary Cohen’s predicted “unequivocal and unambiguous chain of responsibility, authority and accountability”.
That is what I am writing about, and why we are noticing the Department of Justice (DoJ) has since the 1990s been working with the Department of Defense in both Research and Development and also through info sharing as well as cross-training. Thusly has derived the militarization of police and Sheriff departments. Keeping Cohen’s chain of command in mind, let’s read it at the Army Times:
Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1
3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army.
The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys… Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks… But this new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.
-End passages from Army Times –
Secretary of Defense Cohen said it in 1999, “support of civil authorities”, and nobody screamed bloody murder, because it was published in the back pages of the Washington Post and never repeated again, to my knowledge. But I knew even then that a police state would of course use its military in “support of civil authorities”, and you can see that plain as day yourself when you pause to think about it.
So we see that NORTHCOM has a commission to do what Secretary of Defense Cohen predicted in 1999, which is to merge State, County, and Local law enforcement into a chain of command which can answer calls from DHS as well as the Pentagon or the White House.
Our objective in looking at such subjects has to do with that perception which declares that the SWAT killing at his home at Tucson, Arizona, of a young Marine veteran of two tours in Iraq is the logical extension of a policy which emanates from the vortex of Federal power in the hands of a neo-con establishment which actively intends to fuse the military with our local peace officers for the unspoken, but obvious and self-evident, clamp-down on political dissent in America.
Particularly, it has to do with the transition in this country from “protect and serve” to “law enforcement”.
That inner-cultural shift within the peace officer community may be said to have been caused by psychological operations promoted by Department leadership-level influences which come backed by the full force and power of the U.S. Federal government. (For what that’s worth any more, eh?)
To ‘protect and serve’ is of the people; to ‘enforce law’ is of the government.
Could that have anything to do with why many Departments and agencies of Federal government resent Oath Keepers reminding our troops and soldiers that the Oath is sworn to the Constitution and is not sworn to the government? We’ll look at that in Part Four, where we’ll focus on the SPLC and DHS.
The need for the people to regulate their government’s style of administering itself upon the citizenry is self-apparent and obvious when this transition is viewed with an awakened sense of awareness. Clans and tribes derived from Nature’s brute indifference to life’s frailty and rather recently created civilization. The group was a primitive answer to the need for security, dating back to the caves. Social and cultural mores trace back to distant beginnings before recorded history. Our language and our science evolved throughout a span between now and the primitive terror of bygone times. And throughout that history arcs an electric lightning branch which animates the refinements afforded by experience and the remembrance of gained knowledge. It is like a Newtonian mirror of the synapsial firing of neurons in the brain’s electric wave-length fields.
Does the Great Terror of the saber-toothed tiger, seen with dread while circling the camp’s fire as it waned down to embers in interminable night, yet translate today its primordial presence into subconscious archetypal constructs of fright?
Is the instinct for survival yet among mankind? Are there yet hungers and appetites stirring below the surface of society, within the world’s cultures?
Are there subtle, subconscious promptings from bygone forgotten pasts? Is the mind of mankind malleable? Are three tenses really enough? What is a thought? What is “the mind”? Why do we so seldom think about thinking, how it’s done, what it is, what a thought is when compared to a feeling or an emotion or a memory? How is the mind different from the body? What’s the difference between meta and matter? Can there really be a war for one’s mind? In the world of psychological operations (psy-ops) isn’t it all about the mind?
In Part Three we are looking at just a bit of the science and the infrastructure for a bona fide “in-your-face” corporate-backed military-industrial-police state. We see that the infrastructure is already in place. We see that if the Federal government decides that an “emergency” (such as an economic collapse) should come our way, the Federal government will move quickly into this infrastructure and enact what General Tommy Franks has publicly said would be “a military form of government”. There is another name for that. Some call it “Martial Law”.
Let us begin Part Three by looking at something the military is up to, keeping in mind that now the U.S. military has a dedicated Command with a tactical area of responsibility designated as the North American continent including every square inch of U.S. soil.
