The Militarization of the European Union: Schengen Area Handed Over to US-NATO Forces, by Manlio Dinucci

The European Commission presented the Action Plan on Military Mobility on 28 March [1]. “By facilitating military mobility within the EU, – explains the foreign representative of the Union, Federica Mogherini – we can be more effective in reacting when challenges arise”. Even if she does not say so, the reference to “Russian aggression” is evident.

The Action Plan was actually decided not by the EU, but by the Pentagon and NATO. In 2015, General Ben Hodges, commander of US gound forces in Europe (US Army Europe), called for the establishment of a “military Schengen Area” so that, to face “Russian aggression”, US forces could move quickly from one European country to another, without being slowed down by national regulations and customs procedures.

This request was embraced by NATO: the North Atlantic Council, meeting on 8 November 2017 at the level of defense ministers, officially requested the European Union to “implement national rules that facilitate the passage of military forces through the borders and, at the same time, to ‘improve civil infrastructures so that they are adapted to military requirements’ [2].

On February 15, 2018, the North Atlantic Council at the level of defense ministers announced the establishment of a new NATO Logistic Command to “improve the movement in Europe of troops and essential equipment for defense” [3].

Just over a month later, the European Union presented the Action Plan on Military Mobility, which exactly meets the requirements established by the Pentagon and NATO. It envisages “simplifying customs formalities for military operations and the transport of dangerous goods in the military domain”.

This is how the “military Schengen Area” is prepared, with the difference that free-to-circulate are not people but tanks.

Moving tanks and other military vehicles by road and rail is not the same thing as driving ordinary vehicles and trains. “The existing barriers to military mobility” must therefore be removed by modifying “infrastructures not suitable for the weight or size of military vehicles, in particular bridges and rails with insufficient load capacity” For example, if a bridge is not able to hold the weight of a column of tanks, it will have to be strengthened or rebuilt.

The European Commission “will identify the parts of the trans-European transport network suitable for military transport, including necessary upgrades of existing infrastructure”. They must be carried out along tens of thousands of kilometers of the road and rail network. This will require an enormous expense for the member countries, with a “possible financial contribution from the EU for such works”.

However, we European citizens will always pay these “great works”, useless for civil uses, with consequent cuts to social spending and investments in public utility projects.

In Italy, where funds for the reconstruction of the earthquake zones are scarce, billions of euros will have to be spent to rebuild infrastructures suitable for military mobility.

The 27 EU countries, 21 of which belong to NATO, are now called to examine the Plan. Italy would therefore have the possibility to reject it.

This, however, would mean, for the next government, to oppose not only the EU but NATO under US command, starting to disengage from the strategy that, with the invention of the Russian threat, prepares the war, this true, against Russia.

It would be a fundamental political decision for our country but, given the subjection to the US, it remains in the realm of political fiction.

Unconcerned About Trump’s Militarization of Police? This Database Shows What Your Local Cops Have

10331033

Washington, DC — This week the Trump administration announced that they were lifting an Obama administration ban on certain military grade weapons being sold to state and local police for pennies on the dollar. While there is a growing awareness that local law enforcement has received massive amounts of surplus military hardware under the federal 1033 program, authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act, exactly what equipment local law enforcement agencies have been stockpiling has remained largely obscured from the public’s view.

The public controversy over the militarization of the police, for many Americans, began during the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri. Images beamed across the media echo chamber revealed what looked like a war zone in Afghanistan or Iraq — with police kitted out in Marine-issue camouflage and military-grade body armor, toting short-barreled assault rifles, and rolling around in MRAPs (mine resistant armored personnel) vehicles — virtually indistinguishable from US soldiers abroad.

In addition to Ferguson, the extreme militarization of police was clearly on display during the Standing Rock protest, as police looked and acted more like a heavily armed military contingent than peace officers sworn to uphold the law.

Shortly after the American public became widely aware, and largely outraged, over the extreme militarization of their local police forces, President Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) that blocked certain large-caliber weapons, armored vehicles with tracks, grenade launchers, bayonets, and other heavy military hardware from being re-purposed from battlefields across the globe to small town USA.

President Obama argued at the time, that police utilization of such weapons of war cast the police as an “occupying force,” and only served to deepen the divide between police and the community.

“We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they’re an occupying force, as opposed to a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them,” Obama said in announcing the ban in 2015.

The new Trump plan for the 1033 program goes into effect immediately and completely rolls back the Obama EO that blocked state, county, and local police depart from obtaining military weapons of war.

The surplus sharing agreement, also known as the “1033 program,” was originally created by Congress nearly 30 years ago as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, and was intended to assist local law enforcement in drug investigations.

The program was expanded in 1997 to include all local law enforcement operations, including counter-terrorism. Since then, according to the government, more than $5 billion in gear has been transferred to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

Make no mistake that America has been quietly arming its police for battle with its own citizens, under the guise of the drug war, since the early 1990s.

As part of its misguided “war on drugs,” policy makers decided that if police were to act like drug warriors, they needed to be equipped like warriors. Since that time, almost $5 billion in military hardware was transferred from the military to law enforcement, according to a report by the ACLU. By giving military hardware to law enforcement for free, the NDAA and 1033 program encourages police to employ military-like tactics and weaponry.

To give you an idea of the absolute absurdity of the 1033 program, and how it unnecessarily militarizes small town police departments, law enforcement in Watertown, Connecticut, (population 22,514) acquired a mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle (sticker price: $733,000), designed to protect soldiers from roadside bombs, for $2,800. To date there has never been a landmine reported in Watertown, Connecticut.

Police in Bloomington, Georgia, (population: 2,713) acquired four grenade launchers through the program, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Police in small towns in Michigan and Indiana have used the 1033 Program to acquire “MRAP armored troop carriers, night-vision rifle scopes, camouflage fatigues, Humvees and dozens of M16 automatic rifles,” the South Bend Tribune reported.

The distribution of these weapons of war has largely been shielded from public view. However, the database below will show you what your department has acquired through the program.

Now anyone can look up this information on a database using information supplied by the military’s Defense Logistics Agency and Law Enforcement Support Office. All one has to do is type in their State and County jurisdiction and they are able to see exactly what their local law enforcement agencies have received under the federal 1033 program.

Take a look and see what type of military armaments your local police department is stockpiling; mine resistant armored personnel carriers, helicopters, M-16’s, M-14’s, M-4’s, grenade launchers?

The extreme militarization of the police begs the question: who are the local police preparing to use these weapons of war against?

Using history as an indicator, as the founding fathers clearly warned, Americans should be wary of the police operating as an oppressive standing army.

“The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”  – James Madison

Select your state and your county to see exactly how militarized your local law enforcement agencies have become.

The US Just Split Their Air Force To Create A Space Corps. Is The Militarization of Space Here?

It’s no secret that our world has been engulfed in conflict for years. While it can be difficult to find any solace in ongoing tragedy, the fact remains that, as a result of these years of turmoil, the masses are starting to finally wake up to all of the lies, deceit, and propaganda that have been used to ‘justify’ these wars in the eyes of the citizenry.  As Mark Twain once said:

The Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.

What’s the good news? It’s that so many people all over the world, hundreds of millions, if not nearly half the population, have been able to see through this propaganda. They’ve begun to see that our wars are based on false premises, and that the reasons for war are actually created and manufactured for the benefit of the “1” percent.

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.” 

― Smedley D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by One of America’s Most Decorated Soldier

What we’re referring to is false flag terrorism, which was responsible for 9/11 and various other “terror” attacks that have occurred over the decades and forms a major part of the Western military alliance. This begs the question, why is the United States openly announcing their willingness to militarize space? Or have a military space presence?

The House Armed Services Committee recently voted to split the US Air Force, which will lead to the creation of the US Space Corps. This would make America the only nation with a branch of military dedicated to space, as far as we know. Let’s not forget about the already existing United Air Force Space Command. This would therefore be the first new military branch created in the U.S. since 1947.

“This is an issue the subcommittee has studied for months and I can’t even tell you how many meetings with space experts and leaders [Democratic Rep.] Jim [Cooper] and I have had on this subject,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces stated.

According to IFL Science“The subcommittee believes this move will help the US maintain their strategic advantage in space. But not all members of the committee were equally pleased with this as the mark-up (proposed legislation before it is passed) was only discussed in a couple of meetings.”

This is major news, not only major military news but major space news. Interestingly, it also directly coincides with President Trump’s reactivation of the National Space Council, which was recently announced at the White House, where several members of Congress, industry officials, and NASA personnel were in attendance. It also brings the government’s relationship with industry leaders, agencies, and private contractors closer, which is what the entire military industrial complex is all about.

But Why the Militarization of Space?

As with anything else, we are driven by fear. The “war on terror,” as stated by countless documents, high ranking military personnel, presidents, and other politicians, with the most recent being Vladimir Putin, is meant to create fear to justify the infiltration and destabilization of other countries, and this has been used time and time again. The entire existence of the military, and the continued existence of a powerful body whose sole purpose is to kill and inflict harm and destruction in the guise of heroism and patriotism, is prolonged by having some sort of global “threat” against the world. Is a fake ET threat the next card in the deck?

As you’ve probably already heard, Wikileaks released the “Podesta” emails over the past few weeks. As with previous leaks, they expose massive amounts of corruption within the U.S. political system.

John Podesta was head of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, as well as the White House Chief of Staff under the Clinton administration. He also worked for the Obama administration.

Some of the Podesta leaks include information about UFOs and extraterrestrials in the form of private emails.

One in particular was from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, and it reads as follows:

Dear John,

Because the War in Space race is heating up, I felt you should be aware of several factors as you and I schedule our Skype talk.

Remember, our nonviolent ETI from the contiguous universe are helping us bring zero point energy to Earth.

They will not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space.

The following information in italics was shared with me by my colleague Carol Rosin, who worked closely for several years with Wernher von Braun before his death.

Carol and I have worked on the Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, attached for your convenience.

You can read the rest of the email straight from Wikileaks here, and also download the documents attached on the website. 

In the email, he mentions Carol Rosin, who was the first female corporate manager of Fairchild Industries. A space and missile defence consultant who has worked with various corporations, government departments, and intelligence communities, she worked closely with Wernher Von Braun shortly before his death, specifically on the subject of space-based weapons.

She also founded the Institute for Security Cooperation in Outer Space.

Below is a very telling interview with Carol that was conducted by Dr. Steven Greer, founder of The Disclosure Project. Greer accompanied Dr. Edgar Mitchell in all his communications and meetings with the Pentagon and has been instrumental in bringing forth hundreds of military whistleblowers of all ranks, with verified credentials and backgrounds, to share what they’ve learned about this phenomenon through their work.

In the interview, she brings up the idea of a false flag alien threat. The term ‘false flag’ describes covert operations that are designed to be misleading, to make it appear as though events are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

I met the late Dr Wernher Von Braun in early 74, at that time Von Braun was dying of cancer, but he assured me that he would live a few more years in order to tell me about the game that was being played, that game being the effort to weaponize space, to control Earth from space and space itself.

He asked me to be his spokesperson, to appear on occasions when he was to ill to speak, and I did. And what he asked me to do was to educate decision makers and the public about why we shouldn’t be putting weapons into space . . . and what the alternatives are, how we could be building a cooperative space system.

What was most interesting to me, was a repetitive sentence that he said to me over and over again. . . . And that was the strategy that was being used to educate the public and decision makers, and the scare tactics, the spin that was being put on the weapons system. And that was how we identify an enemy.

The enemy at first he said, the enemy against whom we’re going to build a space based weapons system . . . First the Russians are going to be considered the enemy . . . then terrorists would be identified and that was soon to follow . . . then we were going to identify third world crazies, we now call them nations of concern. . . . The next enemy was asteroids . . . [and] against asteroids we’re going to build space based weapons.

And the funniest one of all, was against what he called aliens, extraterrestrials, that would be the final card. And over, and over, and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving his speeches for him, he would bring up that last card.

‘And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We’re going to have to build space based weapons against aliens,’ and all of it, he said, is a lie.

In the 1950s, Colonel Ross Dedrickson was responsible for maintaining the inventory of the nuclear weapon stockpile for the AEC, and for accompanying security teams checking out the security of the weapons, among many other duties.  As his obituary states:

He was assigned to the US Atomic Energy Commission. A long service with the Energy Commission between 1950-1958 included, contract administration duties at Nevada test sites, Pacific Nuclear Test Area west of Hawaii, nuclear weapon manufacturing and quality assurance in Albuquerque, and inspection of nuclear and non-nuclear facilities throughout the country. He served with the 5th Air Force in Japan and later as a ranking Colonel, Officer in Charge of the Pacific Unified Command (TM)s alternate “command and control center” in Hawaii. In 1962, he was transferred and served as Deputy for Material for the 832 Air Division at Canon Air Force Base, Clovis, New Mexico. He retired from the USAF in 1964.

With such a professional background, working in the places he has worked, it’s safe to infer he was privy to sensitive information on a number of subjects. This isn’t just a random high-ranking military whistleblower talking about a random issue. There are many whistleblowers and documents clearly outlining a decades-long relationship between UFOs and nuclear storage facilities and test sites.

In the interview below, Dedrickson explains how the American government tried to detonate a nuclear weapon on the moon, but were prevented from doing so.

As far as the mainstream goes, it’s public knowledge that a declassified report by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center from June 1959 shows just how seriously they considered the plan, called Project A119. In general, they wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space, as well as gain further insight into the space environment and the detonation of nuclear devices within it.

As far as the information below, that probably goes deeper into the Black Budget.

Are We Already In Space?

What type of information is hidden from the public? You will have to ask Gary Mckinnon. In 2002 the U.S. government charged and arrested Gary for performing what is said to be the biggest military computer hack of all time. He was charged with causing $700,000 dollars worth of damage to government computer systems. In 2006, right before the world started hearing about Gary, he seemed to be deeply concerned and pessimistic about his chances for beating extradition. Ten years later, in October of 2012, it was decided that he would not be extradited.

So what did Gary find? He found a list of non-terrestrial off-world officers of rank. He was unable to tell if they represented the Air Force, Navy, or Army. He also found multiple pictures of UFOs and lists of fleet-to-fleet transfers of materials from ship to ship. (source)

Here is one of many articles written about him over the years from multiple media outlets.

“Read the books, read the lore, and start to understand what has really been going on here, because there is no doubt that we are being visited.”  Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14) (source)

The idea that there is already a secret space program is not novel, The United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

Below a great lecture from one of the world’s leading researchers into the subject, Richard Dolan, if you’re interested in learning more about it.  It was given at a conference regarding the secret space program a few years ago.

The Important Thing to Remember About UFO Government Disclosure

It’s a shame that mainstream media and Western governments have spread so much misinformation. People trust them implicitly, making it easy for them to twist the truth for their own ends. So even if they do offer official remarks about UFOs, it’s unlikely that they will be honest when doing so. If the ‘war on terror’ and the ‘war on drugs’ are any indication, we should be wary of anything they tell us about UFOs. But it should be clear to anyone who has researched this subject that powerful and influential people take it very seriously. Whatever information does get released will not be the whole of it.

Why do we always wait until the government or the media verifies something in order to believe it’s true? Why do we assume that anyone without these official credentials is lying, or crazy, or both? If we simply did our own research, we could come to our own conclusions and we wouldn’t be so easily fooled when these official sources lie to us. There is so much information out there and so much evidence to support not only the existence of UFOs but of extraterrestrials as well. We don’t need the government to tell us what is already apparent. We just need to do independent research and think for ourselves.

Is there a possibility that some powerful groups that control governments will use the extraterrestrial phenomenon to deceive the masses? Given everything we’ve seen with false flag terrorism so far, it certainly seems plausible.

That being said, a tremendous amount of resources would be needed, and if ‘others’ are indeed out there watching, perhaps the ‘real’ ones wouldn’t let that happen. Who knows?

What are your thoughts? Feel free to share in the comments section below.

I’ll leave you with this quote from one of Braun’s mentors, one of the founding fathers or rocketry and astronautics, Herman Oberth: “It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” (source)

Real UFO disclosure comes from us, the people, not a government. The more we create awareness and share our experience, as well as continue to initiate contact between “them” and us, the closer we move toward something that is inevitable — to become a space travelling race with relationships with intelligent lifeforms from other parts of our solar system, galaxy, and universe(s).

Video: Police Departments are now the largest single group of buyers at International Defense Expos


Tony Webster/FlickrTony Webster/Flickr

(INTELLIHUB) — As the militarization of America’s police force continues to rapidly increase, the American people have begun to realize the dangers of turning local police departments into military style units hellbent on terrorizing the people.

After the response to the unrest in Ferguson, President Obama claimed he was clamping down on this militarization by outlawing police from obtaining certain types of military grade gear. Unfortunately, these reforms were nothing more than an attempt to quell public anger while not really putting a stop to the ever-increasing American police state.

Now, new information coming out of one of the world’s largest military defense conventions has revealed that police departments are now the largest single group of attendees to expos such as LAAD.

Activist Post reporter Amanda Warren noted:

You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the biggest driver of the world economy is war and weaponry. But then why would law enforcement be active buyers at elite International Defense Expos like LAAD (Brazil)? This is where country and military heads go to get big time weapons – guns, bulk ammo, drones, armor, APCs, jets and even rockets. It’s Willy Wonka’s war store, except the Candyman’s gone.

Not only are police organizations buying goods at the Int’l Defense expos – they now make up the single largest group of buyer attendees at the shows.

It looks like there is some major less-than-lethal stockpiling among police groups going on at these trade shows….

It is also important to highlight the fact that urban military training drills are also connected to the rise of this so-called American police state.

Most of the time these training drills involve local police training with military special forces which furthers the idea that these local cops are an extension of the military rather than officers assigned to protect and serve the civilian population.
