The Pentagon announced that it will be conducting guerilla warfare training in North Carolina in the coming weeks. The point of the exercise is to train American soldiers to battle “seasoned freedom fighters”, according to the Army. They say they made the announcement so that the public would not be shocked by the sound of weapons or the sight of the soldiers conducting war games. The exercises are going to be conducted on private lands in the western part of the state

This announcement coincides with the Department of Justice announcing the formation of a specialized unit focused on domestic terrorism. According to the DOJ, “We have seen a growing threat from those who are motivated by racial animus, as well as those who ascribe to extremist anti-government and anti-authority ideologies.” What they are saying is the hysterical reaction to the January 6 protests is entirely justified as there is an invisible army out there making bombs.

Many assume this is about the ongoing shift toward treating all opposition to the regime as domestic terrorism. The color revolution they orchestrated against Trump will become a full-time revolution. Politicians will go on about the threat to our democracy while agents of the secret police drag people off for made up crimes. Liberal democracy is in its terror phase. The gross violation of rights is justified by the perpetual state of emergency over the alleged threat to the system.

There is some of that, for sure, but the FBI has been framing people as domestic terrorists for generations. They used to work with organized crime to frame people for murders committed by gangsters. That made the FBI look good and they did not have to do any real work. They orchestrated antiwar protests in the 1960’s and racial crimes in the South during the civil rights era. They framed too many people to count during the Bush years in the name of fighting Islamic terrorism.

In other words, the FBI and the rest of the intelligence agencies have never needed a reason to abuse the rights of Americans. The reason these organizations came into existence at the same time the American empire went global is every empire needs a secret police to prevent domestic enemies. Empires do not treat the core population very well, so they have to worry that the core population will get tired of sharing the wealth and revolt against their rulers.

There is another reason for these announcements. The intelligence agencies have broken free of civilian oversight. We saw this in the Trump years when they spied on his campaign and tried to frame any number of people in order to perpetuate the cover-up now known as the Russian collusion hoax. Chuck Schumer told Trump in public that he better not take on these agencies as they have a six million ways to get him. The politicians fear the intelligence community.

A big part of their power is the ability of these agencies to perpetuate fear among the people in the political class. It is why they tried to frame Congressman Matt Gaetz for sex trafficking early last year. Every member of Congress looked at what was happening and thought about their younger days. If they could ring up a sitting member of Congress for being a party boy in his youth, they will do anything. Also note how the media did not report on the disposition of the case.

That is what is going on with these ostentatious displays over the alleged domestic terrorism threat. The FBI and DOJ looked at the way the political class reacted to the January 6 protests and realized they could use their fear as a tool of control. A few times a year they will arrest some patsies for trying to attack a politician and then use these as examples at public hearings. The FBI will never have to answer another difficult question from Congress.

This is also a nice bit of insurance in case the people screw up again and vote Trump back into office. The FBI and DOJ assume that Trump will do what they would do if the roles were reversed and that is seek revenge. Any digging around in the FBI or DOJ will be met with howling about Trump’s links to domestic terrorism. The Russian collusion hoax will be replaced by the insurrection hoax. The media, of course, already knows the drill so they will be all over this too.

There is another aspect to this. Orwell noted how authoritarian regimes needed an enemy to rally the people against. He was a socialist so he naturally thought a traitor to the cause made for the best villain. Emmanuel Goldstein from 1984 and Snowball from Animal Farm were both modeled after Trotsky. Liberal democracy, on the other hand, just needs non-democratic enemies. They do not have to be from the ruling class to be a useful villain to rally support.

In the last thirty years, the empire has had many types of Muslim baddies to use as the designated threat to democracy. The American police state was built as a defense against this alleged threat. Russia has been conjured into a global threat to democracy for the same reason. Now they are manufacturing all sorts of domestic baddies to be the great threat to the system. The intelligence agencies are always right there to confirm the regimes worst fears.

It is not that people are sitting around saying, “We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs, gentlemen.” This fear of what lies outside the snow globe that is imperial politics just comes naturally to people who have to no real purpose. Politics in a managerial state is ceremonial, having no real impact on life. Despite their lofty titles, the people in the political system feel utterly helpless. Fear and paranoia are the natural consequences of their impotence.

In the end, nothing much will change for the Dirt People. When the FBI needs some trophies to display to Congress, they will round up the usual suspects. Sure, many now wriggle through the net as even the dumbest have caught on to how this works, but there is always at least one idiot willing to play along. Otherwise, the domestic terrorism unit will be creating security theater for the political class. They will be the narrator telling them to fear what lies outside the Capital Beltway.

I think I am getting real fucking tired of the military trying to be woke. This whole thing about patriots being a threat to this country has got to fucking stop considering we have an administration that with one speech or edict can absolutely destroy what is left of the economy, and put this country on a downward trajectory faster than any of our enemies or phony ones ever could.

The only people who are conducting terror campaigns in this country are the feds who have their agents in every single part of our society agitating and trying to create the pretext for a purge of patriots.

And here our military has to do the show of force to let all of the people of this nation know, it’s pointless to resist.

Welcome to Simo Hayha 2.0. Because I guarantee that is what will happen should these assholes really decide they want to go door to door in this country. While only the cucks and cowards will surrender just like the fudds, there are plenty of honest to god Americans who will not go quietly.

Whether it be some bullshit vaccination, or some outright gun confiscation scheme hatched by these traitorous fucks, the real America will reveal itself.

The military better realize that it’s not the people they need to be going after but the very powers that be that are destroying this nation from within.

the western part of the state

They're still obsessing and shaking in their boots over the Eric Rudolph era 18+ years ago and the 1970s 'Greensboro Massacre' of communist scum. There was never any terror threat then either aside from Rudolph, though there were some goodly activist and religious functions. There was a tale of somebody sticking a laser pen in the ground and it interfering with airplanes, but that sounds a real stretch.

Their intimidation is borne of sheer desperation -- they'll do anything rather than their actual jobs. Shame on the ppl who let them use their land. I see they're blaming Rudolph for Centennial Park bombing but he was only a patsy there, if that.

NC has always struck me as very toothless, very momist -- full of yankees too, even more than SC. There is a fine conserv print newspaper up there tho with an education focus -- the John Locke Foundation's www.carolinajournal.com/

(Tarheels pls forgive my bluntness. You of northern location aren't yankees, thus I feel free to throw the term around.)

Unfortunately, ppl seem to become instant statists and warmongers on joining up. They took in a mildly retarded kid I knew.

Yeah when I joined I was full of all that prefabricated patriotism and when I got out and saw how the military really is used, I understood that it isn’t about protecting the people of the United States. It’s about protecting the government from the people, and the assets of the corporations that put those power elites into office. From the top down, from President to the lowest private, it’s shut up and do what you’re told. Don’t ask questions for your own good.

Ask questions, or question anything and you have no place in any branch of the military or the government for that matter. Unless the powers that be want to build an illusion or two and then marginalize that person when it is deemed necessary.

What a grand illusion we have in this country.

I personally would say it exists to kill people Israel doesn't like including duh American People, and guard the selfish myopic interests of the super-rich (who all seem to be passionate commies). But that's just me, a hardened cynic.

You don't live in Northern Virginia and, thus, cannot be blamed for turning the red state blue.

NVA is still only a cancerous growth, though what's going to stop it from taking over the whole Commonwealth I do not know.

What causes you to think it hasn't? Until they went a bit too far, the commonwealth had been solidly blue for years.
