Consider the population of men who control the goings on in the world at its core. I refer to them as "Themme", "Theye", "Theire" to distinguish them nominally from the dissatisfying vague pronouns of similar and non-capitalized spelling.
Theye have been wildly successful at corralling huge populations into thinking and behaving as they desire. It seems, however, that of late Theye are running into some hard limits and that the populations for which this can be said are growing, the growth accelerating.
Consider the purported "election" of Barack Obama to the ostensibly highest office in the American system. Back in 2007-2008 he was the darling of a press that portrayed him in ways just short of declaring his ability to tap-dance across the seven seas. He could do no wrong. This continued through his first term despite some of his policy decisions which the rational man could construe only as the product of some combination of wild ineptitude, ignorance, corruption, and bitter hatred for Americans.
This continued through the campaign cycle, but once his reelection was secured, cracks began to show. One year into his final term now reveals a situation so bad that even those media outlets that were blindly dedicated to his service, rather than to honest and adept reportage, have softened the hard edges of their outward admiration of this president. In some cases it appears they may be preparing to throw him under the bus as the threat of economic failure looms ever more menacingly to the degree that all but the most terminally devoted can no longer deny truths that were regarded as worse than treason just a few short months ago.
As Theye push the envelope of usurpation, more and more people are beginning to come out of the fog, asking "what is going on here?" As this population grows, so grows the threat against Theire dominion and the agenda for expansion. The question naturally arises as to whether Theye will otherwise sit idly back on the one hand as on the other they continue to push ever more deeply their trespasses against the individual. At this point motives and intentions are rapidly becoming irrelevant. It really no longer matters whether the intentions are good, if misguided, or openly malevolent. All that counts are the results, and with each passing day they become more grim in terms of individual freedom and the prosperity that is directly dependent upon it.
If we accept the apparent circumstance as the true one, the question naturally arises as to whether there is a breaking point beyond which the population standing in increasingly open opposition to the trespass of the political elite into their private territory will precipitate material resistance of significance to Themme. If we further assume the answer is "yes" and that the resultant reaction stands to pose real and perhaps mortal threats to members of Theire ranks, we must then ask ourselves whether Theye will sit passively awaiting their uncertain fates as an enraged population storms the Bastille with torches blazing and pitchforks at the ready. While speculative, I feel fairly safe in assuming that Theye will not be found quietly waiting with their heads already positioned on the block to receive their richly earned rewards. No. Theye will fight. But who will do the fighting?
The US military, it seems, is a bit of a wild card. I have been treated to various reports and read articles expressing widely varying opinions that range from "nobody will fire upon US citizens" to "large proportions will follow orders no matter how blatantly and wildly criminal they may be". I feel confident the truth lies somewhere between those extremes and I suspect Theye may not be so confident that the biggest and baddest junkyard dog on the planet will heed their command to protect Their cadre when the time comes.
What, then, are Theye to do? Enter the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Forget about the ostensible mission of DHS - to protect the "homeland", a term with which I have never been comfortable as it reminds me too strongly of "fatherland" and "motherland", and we know what greatness spawned those fond monikers. The question that everyone should be asking there is, who, exactly, comprises the "homeland" and from whom is it being protected? At this point, given the waters having thus far passed under the bridges of recent history, I am inclined to assume that the "homeland" is not the people of the USA. I am, however, very inclined to suspect that those very people are the ones from whom DHS seeks to defend their masters.
If we accept for argument's sake that "homeland" = Themme and "from whom" = the American people, a rather unpleasant new picture presents itself to plain view.
Many will immediately retreat into accusations of "conspiracy nut", "tin hat!" and so forth, but the evidence that is out there, that Theye have made no effort to deny, and in fact to which they admit openly via various government agencies and reports, suggests a very real possibility. There are, of course, the bodies of legislation that have been enacted including PATRIOT, NDAA, and so forth. Add to that the raft of executive orders that unilaterally grant the president powers tantamount to that of an emperor, and we already have enough evidence to suggest Theye are well into preparations for dealing with a nation that has decided enough is enough.
But the more immediately damning evidence blatantly rubbed in our noses relates to the materiel purchases by DHS of recent years:
- Ammunition to the tune of 1.6 to 1.8 billion rounds
- Assault rifles numbering in the tens of thousands
- Armored vehicles, last I checked, numbering 2717
- 2500 GLS armored vehicles
- Hundreds of thousands of polymer coffins (Actually FEMA/CDC)
There is much more to the list, but this should be certainly enough to prompt one to ask, "Why? - what is all of this for?" After all, it is not the Department of Foreign Security. We have our military for that. What could they possibly want with so much military grade materiel when they are supposed to be concerned with domestic security? What are Theye not telling us? Is China and/or Russia planning an invasion? If so, are our military forces not adequate to the purpose of defense?
It is pretty obvious that something is up, that is will not be pleasant, and that we the people are not likely to approve. It is equally obvious that Theye have no intentions of going quietly into the night as we finally decide we have had enough and move to put Themme to ends.
Finally we arrive at a question central in all of this: who, exactly, are DHS? Literally, who, which is to say how many, make up their ranks? Five minutes ago I perused the "careers" section of their site and it shows a grand total of 104 open positions at DHS. This is not suggestive of an organization preparing to go on a war footing as are their materiel purchases, which gives rise to some sense of confusion as to what is really going on.
If DHS is indeed preparing for either a major disaster or civil insurrection, they will need warm bodies and lots of them to man those vehicles, take up those rifles, and shoot all those rebels. I may be wrong, but I see no evidence that their ranks are nearly sufficient to such a task. I have made the observation in the past that Theye will derive their manpower from the very populations they seek to restrain, and I maintain that opinion, but not in the initial stages in the case of insurrection. In that case, DHS will need a cadre of reliably loyal men strongly motivated to vicious repression of their fellows for the opening scenes of this play. But where does one get such men?
There have been all manner of rumors of Russian and other foreign soldiers training on American soil, apparently as part of covertly agreed mutual defense pacts wherein if Russia faces insurrection, American troops will be called upon to render aid and the same with Russian troops in the case of trouble in North America. While plausible, I am not convinced this is going to happen for any of several reasons. For example, how would Theye know whether Russia would pony up when things became real and immediate? How would Theye know the troops sent here would obey orders to Theire satisfaction? How do Theye know Russian troops would not turn on Themme, perhaps constituting an effective fifth column in the event Russia perceived a golden opportunity to advance their position on the world stage?
For me there appear to be too many loose ends with such arrangements, but of course this is based on my very imperfect knowledge of the truer nature of the relations between the various players. But if my uneasiness about such arrangements is based in good reason, then perhaps other arrangements may be in the works, and that leads us finally to the bottom line, which is this: In the case of civil insurrection, perhaps in the wake of an economic collapse, DHS will need a sizable force of bully boys upon whose willingness to fire on Americans can be solidly relied. I submit that we have just such a population right here, several millions strong, and every so motivated to loyal service: those serving hard time in both federal and state prisons, especially the former.
Before dismissing this as some paranoid delusion, consider some of the realities. At the time of this writing and to my admittedly incomplete knowledge, DHS employs not nearly enough people to do the "dirty work" of suppressing a revolt across the face of a nation as enormous and well armed as that of the United States. Add to that the fact that perhaps not all current DHS agents are prepared to fire upon their fellow Americans, which will require a special brand of hardness, the sort that is well known to exist in the sociopath. Our prisons are full of those. Some may not be that way when they first arrive in prison, but the environment soon changes that.
Given the needs in order to suppress not just a revolt, but one that nearly everyone in the nation will know in his heart of hearts is righteous, and the prisoner becomes a very attractive choice for filling the ranks of repression.
Consider the motivating factors from the prisoner's point of view:
- You are living in a cage in hell
- You eat lousy food
- There are no women available, so you subsist on gay rape
- You may be the victim of gay rape
- Violence or its threat is everywhere and at all times
- There is no happiness of which to speak
- You face the prospect of decades of this "lifestyle"
- You may even rather you were dead, but lack the nerve to end it
All of a sudden, you are offered a way out. You will be released from the bondage of your cell if you agree to a different bond of service and if you discharge that service with absolute loyalty and obedience you will be granted a complete pardon. Your fealty will require that you obey every order issued no matter what it might be or against whom you are called to act. The least failure to absolute and complete obedience will place you back in your cell, only your circumstance will be at least ten times more savage and severe. It is guaranteed that you will live to regret disobedience for a very long time. Among the things required of you will be:
- To be trained in the discipline and operations of a DHS agent
- Conduct missions as given to completion
- To fire upon American citizens in self defense or when otherwise so ordered
- To execute American citizens as ordered without hesitation or reservation
- To apprehend American citizens and convey or otherwise dispose of them as ordered
- To defend your superiors up to and including the sacrifice of your own life to protect theirs
- To defend your fellow agents, albeit secondarily to orders and defense of superiors
- To refrain from all unacceptable behaviors of the prison and other environments
- Starting from a clean slate
In exchange for your service, you will be rewarded with the following:
- Immediate release from your current incarceration.
- A uniform
- A purpose
- A potential career
- Good living accommodations, paid
- Good food, paid
- Discretionary income
- Personal security from other inmates
- Authority to act in the service of your nation
- Limited authority to claim booty acquired in the discharge of duties
In reward for your completed service you will receive:
- A full pardon
- Fully expunged record to the outside world
- Possible career offer
- Restoration of full contractual rights, such as they may be at the time of discharge
Given this scenario, which is by no means far-fetched, it becomes clear that the typical prisoner in for the long haul and probably violent to begin with, being likely an opportunistic creature, would jump at the opportunity to escape his past with all honors if he be ready and willing to assume the risks in exchange for the certainty of decades in a cage and man-on-man sex.
We have nearly two and a half million people in prisons in America. The environments there strongly cultivate anger and pathological behavior and attitudes. Living in such places is hellish for most and while some may be incapable of "making it" on the outside, the offer of freedom in an environment that provides strong support in the transition to the outside world might be just enough to make even those otherwise reticent souls jump at the opportunity to make a clean break from the past.
With such strong motivating factors at play, coupled with the right program of psychological conditioning, it appears to me that the US prison population stands as a premier source from which an organization such as DHS could pull resources with which to suppress rebellion with perfect cruelty and efficiency.
Until next time, please accept my best regards.
