Military mobilization against Americans

THOR, Son of ODIN(2)

Aircraft flying over DCA last night in a show of force against #GeorgeFloyd protesters were ordered by President.


Also: 700 members of the 82nd are at Joint Base Andrews and Fort Belvoir. 1,400 more soldiers are ready to be mobilized within an hour. Soldiers are armed and have riot gear. They also were issued bayonets—standard issue but some feel could be inflammatory.

I can not voice how much this disgusts and terrifies me. Some people seem to think it will not impact them. They are wrong. People who actually think will start wondering if they are next. Eventually they will be next.

They also were issued bayonets...

Worth repeating. These are the president's orders for the military to be ready to stab Americans as he deploys them on our own land.

Not just stab... they were carrying live ammunition.

I think people will be pretty shocked when they hear the details of the 82nd's Immediate Response Force deployment last week, and how close we came to a catastrophe. Details here:


New details revealed about the 82nd Airborne's rapid deployment to DC area last week
https://connectingvets.radio.com/articles/new-details-about-the-82nd-military-deployment-to-dc

Amid domestic unrest and political turmoil at the highest levels of
government, the 82nd Airborne Division's Immediate Response Battalion 1
deployed to the National Capital Region last week and was on standby for
riot control duties.

Now, new details have come to light about the 82nd's controversial deployment, one that came close to pitting U.S. Army paratroopers against the American people.

...After the legal briefing, the IRB's leadership element met and
discussed what was happening in an informal setting. "There was some
very deep philosophical discussions about the Constitution
, their role
in defending critical infrastructure, facing off against U.S. citizens
versus whether protesting or rioting and looting," a source familiar
with the event told Connecting Vets. A decision was made that each
paratrooper would put their M4 magazine with ten live rounds in it in
one of their back pockets on their multi-cam fatigue pants if they were
called to action.

At least some of the paratroopers believed that
the mission was inappropriate for combat troops like them, trained and
equipped for outright war. Some felt as if each of them were being asked
to individually decide where they stood on constitutional issues and
whether or not what they were being asked to do was right or wrong.
Paratroopers are trained to parachute behind enemy lines, maneuver on
enemy forces and kill them on the battlefield. Now they were being
called up for riot-control duties within their own country.

Very sobering.

Trump MO: He pushes as far as he can push, and if there's a disaster of unanticipated consequences, he will be sure someone else take the fall.

Now we know why #BunkerBaby felt an urgent need to inspect his secret hidey hole. He ordered military troops with live ammunition to prepare to fire on Americans.

Hard to think of a greater need for a Congressional Hearing than that.
