Trump Regime to Incarcerate Unwanted Immigrants on Military Bases

Trump Regime to Incarcerate Unwanted Immigrants on Military Bases

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Trump and extremist hardliners infesting his regime are hostile to world peace, stability, rule of law principles, governance serving everyone equitably, and fundamental human rights.

They’re notably hostile to Muslims, America’s poor and most vulnerable, as well as immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers from unwanted countries – based on their race, ethnicity and/or religion alone.

The tired, poor, huddled masses, yearning to breathe free no longer are welcome in America. The lamp beside its golden door isn’t lifted for them.

Safe haven in the US is off limits to the wretched of the earth, its countless homeless, tempest-tossed millions.

A previous article explained that under Trump’s new executive order, unwanted immigrant children will be incarcerated with parents instead of held separately.

Holding them against their will under concentration camp conditions amounts to treating desperate families fleeing home countries for safety or other justifiable reasons like criminals, repressing them instead of helping in their time of great need.

Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy reflects maximum indifference to fundamental human rights, needs and welfare, how all rogue states operate, America by far the worst by its aggressive and unlawful global actions.

Trump intends incarcerating around 20,000 or more immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers on four Pentagon military bases in Texas and Arkansas under harsh conditions, holding them as virtual prisoners of a hostile regime, uncaring about their rights and needs.

Reportedly the plan is to hold unwanted “unaccompanied alien children” there, according to Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Michael Andrews.

It’s unclear but likely that unwanted parents and children will be held together, no details so far provided.

Trump’s new executive order calls for detaining families at the same facility. Holding thousands at military bases is planned at least through yearend – the Pentagon and HHS department to handle their internment jointly, how not clear.

War secretary Mattis ordered military lawyers to border areas to assist in prosecuting the unwanteds.

According to Rep. Ted Lieu, a former military lawyer, ones on active duty aren’t trained in immigration law. Their “main mission is to help commanders fight our wars, not prosecute misdemeanors.”

The fate of countless thousands of unwanteds lies in the hands of a ruthless regime, not caring a hoot about their rights and welfare.

Trump’s military drops a bomb every 12 minutes, and no one is talking about it

While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names.

Once every 12 minutes.

The United States military drops an explosive with a strength you can hardly comprehend once every 12 minutes. And that’s odd, because we’re technically at war with—let me think—zero countries. So that should mean zero bombs are being dropped, right?

Hell no! You’ve made the common mistake of confusing our world with some sort of rational, cogent world in which our military-industrial complex is under control, the music industry is based on merit and talent, Legos have gently rounded edges (so when you step on them barefoot, it doesn’t feel like an armor-piercing bullet just shot straight up your sphincter), and humans are dealing with climate change like adults rather than burying our heads in the sand while trying to convince ourselves that the sand around our heads isn’t getting really, really hot.

You’re thinking of a rational world. We do not live there.

Instead, we live in a world where the Pentagon is completely and utterly out of control. A few weeks ago, I wrote about the $21 trillion (that’s not a typo) that has gone unaccounted for at the Pentagon. But I didn’t get into the number of bombs that ridiculous amount of money buys us. President George W. Bush’s military dropped 70,000 bombs on five countries. But of that outrageous number, only 57 of those bombs really upset the international community.

Because there were 57 strikes in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen—countries the U.S. was neither at war with nor had ongoing conflicts with. And the world was kind of horrified. There was a lot of talk that went something like, “Wait a second. We’re bombing in countries outside of war zones? Is it possible that’s a slippery slope ending in us just bombing all the goddamn time? (Awkward pause.) … Nah. Whichever president follows Bush will be a normal adult person (with a functional brain stem of some sort) and will therefore stop this madness.”

We were so cute and naive back then, like a kitten when it’s first waking up in the morning.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reported that under President Barack Obama there were “563 strikes, largely by drones, that targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. …”

It’s not just the fact that bombing outside of a war zone is a horrific violation of international law and global norms. It’s also the morally reprehensible targeting of people for pre-crime, which is what we’re doing and what the Tom Cruise movie “Minority Report” warned us about. (Humans are very bad at taking the advice of sci-fi dystopias. If we’d listened to “1984,” we wouldn’t have allowed the existence of the National Security Agency. If we listened to “The Terminator,” we wouldn’t have allowed the existence of drone warfare. And if we’d listened to “The Matrix,” we wouldn’t have allowed the vast majority of humans to get lost in a virtual reality of spectacle and vapid nonsense while the oceans die in a swamp of plastic waste. … But you know, who’s counting?)

There was basically a media blackout while Obama was president. You could count on one hand the number of mainstream media reports on the Pentagon’s daily bombing campaigns under Obama. And even when the media did mention it, the underlying sentiment was, “Yeah, but look at how suave Obama is while he’s OK’ing endless destruction. He’s like the Steve McQueen of aerial death.”

And let’s take a moment to wipe away the idea that our “advanced weaponry” hits only the bad guys. As David DeGraw put it, “According to the C.I.A.’s own documents, the people on the ‘kill list,’ who were targeted for ‘death-by-drone,’ accounted for only 2% of the deaths caused by the drone strikes.”

Two percent. Really, Pentagon? You got a two on the test? You get five points just for spelling your name right.

But those 70,000 bombs dropped by Bush—it was child’s play. DeGraw again: “[Obama] dropped 100,000 bombs in seven countries. He out-bombed Bush by 30,000 bombs and 2 countries.”

You have to admit that’s impressively horrific. That puts Obama in a very elite group of Nobel Peace Prize winners who have killed that many innocent civilians. The reunions are mainly just him and Henry Kissinger wearing little hand-drawn name tags and munching on deviled eggs.

However, we now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.

Trump’s military dropped 44,000 bombs in his first year in office.

He has basically taken the gloves off the Pentagon, taken the leash off an already rabid dog. So the end result is a military that’s behaving like Lil Wayne crossed with Conor McGregor. You look away for one minute, look back, and are like, “What the f*ck did you just do? I was gone for like, a second!”

Under Trump, five bombs are dropped per hour—every hour of every day. That averages out to a bomb every 12 minutes.

And which is more outrageous—the crazy amount of death and destruction we are creating around the world, or the fact that your mainstream corporate media basically NEVER investigates it? They talk about Trump’s flaws. They say he’s a racist, bulbous-headed, self-centered idiot (which is totally accurate)—but they don’t criticize the perpetual Amityville massacre our military perpetrates by dropping a bomb every 12 minutes, most of them killing 98 percent non-targets.

When you have a Department of War with a completely unaccountable budget—as we saw with the $21 trillion—and you have a president with no interest in overseeing how much death the Department of War is responsible for, then you end up dropping so many bombs that the Pentagon has reported we are running out of bombs.

Oh, dear God. If we run out of our bombs, then how will we stop all those innocent civilians from … farming? Think of all the goats that will be allowed to go about their days.

And, as with the $21 trillion, the theme seems to be “unaccountable.”

Journalist Witney Webb wrote in February, “Shockingly, more than 80 percent of those killed have never even been identified and the C.I.A.’s own documents have shown that they are not even aware of who they are killing—avoiding the issue of reporting civilian deaths simply by naming all those in the strike zone as enemy combatants.”

That’s right. We kill only enemy combatants. How do we know they’re enemy combatants? Because they were in our strike zone. How did we know it was a strike zone? Because there were enemy combatants there. How did we find out they were enemy combatants? Because they were in the strike zone. … Want me to keep going, or do you get the point? I have all day.

This is not about Trump, even though he’s a maniac. It’s not about Obama, even though he’s a war criminal. It’s not about Bush, even though he has the intelligence of boiled cabbage. (I haven’t told a Bush joke in about eight years. Felt kind of good. Maybe I’ll get back into that.)

This is about a runaway military-industrial complex that our ruling elite are more than happy to let loose. Almost no one in Congress or the presidency tries to restrain our 121 bombs a day. Almost no one in a mainstream outlet tries to get people to care about this.

Recently, the hashtag #21Trillion for the unaccounted Pentagon money has gained some traction. Let’s get another one started: #121BombsADay.

One every 12 minutes.

Do you know where they’re hitting? Who they’re murdering? Why? One hundred and twenty-one bombs a day rip apart the lives of families a world away—in your name and my name and the name of the kid doling out the wrong size popcorn at the movie theater.

We are a rogue nation with a rogue military and a completely unaccountable ruling elite. The government and military you and I support by being a part of this society are murdering people every 12 minutes, and in response, there’s nothing but a ghostly silence. It is beneath us as a people and a species to give this topic nothing but silence. It is a crime against humanity.

Trump Orders Creation of Space-Focused U.S. Military Branch

Trump Orders Creation of Space-Focused U.S. Military Branch

June 18th, 2018

Oh sure, it’ll make the Pentagon more efficient: At incinerating trillions of taxpayer dollars.

Also, there’s Carol Rosin’s account of her time with Wernher Von Braun, which might finally be coming into play:

The strategy that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy. In fact, in 1974, they were the enemy, the identified enemy. We were told that they had “killer satellites�. We were told that they were coming to get us and control us – that they were “Commies.�

Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country “crazies.� We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons.

The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it. Asteroids- against asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons.

And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. That would be the final scare. And over and over and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving speeches for him, he would bring up that last card. “And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens and all of it is a lie.�

Via: Reuters:

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said he was ordering the creation of a sixth branch of the military to focus on space, a move critics said could harm the Air Force.

“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,� Trump said before a meeting of his National Space Council.

“We are going to have the Air Force and we’re going to have the ‘Space Force.’ Separate but equal. It is going to be something,� he said later.

The United States is a member of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which bars the stationing of weapons of mass destruction in space and only allows for the use of the moon and other celestial bodies for peaceful purposes.

The idea of a Space Force has been raised before, by Trump and previous administrations, with proponents saying it would make the Pentagon more efficient.

    That Carol Rosin info is new to me. Thanks, Kevin.

  2. Kevin Says:

    Oh yeah, she has been telling this story for many years. I always just kept it tucked away in the back of my mind.

    People have to listen to the Dark Journalist stuff on secret space/breakaway civilization/Nixon time capsule/Trump-Nixon connection. Daniel is “THE MAN” on this.

  3. Kevin Says:

    And let’s not forget the ongoing Tom Delonge op.

  4. Dennis Says:

    I’ve watched the darkjournalist videos you’ve linked to and get a sense of something your website’s name communicates well: a hidden form or shape, something manifesting, but still veiled.

    I suspect there’s an extradimensional component, but Carol Rosin’s focuses exclusively on earthly powers that be and political manipulation.

    Delonge? ‘…A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.’ Op indeed.

The Same Military That Guns Down Peaceful Women and Children Is Training Cops In The US


As the death toll near the border in Gaza continues to grow, and Israeli military snipers shoot and kill innocent women and children, journalists, and nurses rendering aid to wounded victims, Americans should consider the influence Israeli forces are having on police in the United States, given the extensive training select law enforcement officials receive during seminars in Israel that have been ongoing for years.

It may sound like a “conspiracy theory,” but the close relationship between the U.S. and Israel—which costs American taxpayers nearly $4 billion a year—has extended to the training of law enforcement, and dozens of American officials are sent to Israel to train with Israeli law enforcement each year.

In September 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported that 52 American police officers from 12 states made a special trip to Israel “to train in counterterrorism techniques and attend an annual 9/11 memorial service outside Jerusalem” with the Police Unity Tour, which was established in 1997. During the trip, the delegation of officers was based at the Beit Shemesh police academy where they participated in counterterrorism drills and received training from Israeli military and police before they concluded on Sept. 11 with a 9/11 memorial service.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told the Post that he believes the “ongoing security threats” in Israel present the perfect situation for officers from around the world to receive training that will shape the way they view their jobs at home.

“In terms of counterterrorism tactics that have been used and implemented at numerous scenes across the country, where unfortunately terrorist attacks have taken place, the Israeli police have used those tactics to minimize injuries, as well as find rapid solutions,” Rosenfeld said.

The National Counter-Terrorism Seminar included training on topics such as “leadership in a time of terror” and “balancing the fight against crime and terrorism.” More than 200 law enforcement executives from over 100 departments in the United States—including immigration officials and campus police—have participated in the program since it launched in 2004, according to a report from The Intercept:

“In the aftermath of 9/11, Israel seized on its decades-long experience as an occupying force to brand itself as a world leader in counterterrorism. U.S. law enforcement agencies took the Jewish state upon its expertise by participating in exchange programs sponsored by an array of pro-Israel groups, like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, and the Anti-Defamation League. Over the past decade and a half, scores of top federal, state, and local police officers from dozens of departments from across the U.S. have gone to Israel to learn about its terrorism-focused policing.”

The training sessions began happening regularly after 9/11, and the Jewish Virtual Library noted that they have been presented as a way to show that “American police and law enforcement officials are taking advantage of Israel’s expertise in various facets of counter-terrorism and first response to better protect the American people.” A timeline from the Library highlighted how the program has developed over the years:

  • 2002 – Los Angeles Police Department Detective Ralph Morten visited Israel to receive training and advice on preparing security arrangements for large public gatherings.
  • 2003 – 33 senior U.S. law enforcement officials from cities including Washington, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia, traveled to Israel to attend a meeting on “Law Enforcement in the Era of Global Terror.”
  • 2003 – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security established a special Office of International Affairs to institutionalize the relationship between Israeli and American security officials.
  • 2011 – A delegation of American police commanders, security experts and FBI agents, traveled to Israel for a joint training seminar with Israeli counter-terrorism officials, sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League.
  • 2012 – The New York Police Department opened an Israeli branch at the Sharon District Police Headquarters in the Israeli coastal city of Kfar Saba.
  • 2013 – A special team of bomb squad members from cities along the U.S.-Mexico border traveled to Israel to improve techniques and tactics for dealing with illegal immigration.

When David Grosso, a city council member in Washington D.C., learned that D.C. Metropolitan Police Commander Morgan Kane was a member of the 2017 trip, he wrote a letter to the department’s chief of police arguing that no matter where the training was taking place, the last thing the U.S. needs is more militarization among local police when what is actually needed is a community-based approach.

“I am concerned that we are not doing enough to prevent the militarization of law enforcement in the District of Columbia,” Grosso wrote. Learning from military advisors is not what local law enforcement needs.

Given the fact that police in the United States already have easy access to military equipment—in fact, a police department with only eight officers obtained $3 million worth of military vehicles, weapons, and equipment—the idea that departments are receiving extensive military training should raise major red flags.

The training seminars are also incredibly troubling because of the fact that American law enforcement officials are working alongside a military that openly promotes the idea that it is acceptable to shoot and kill both peaceful protesters and innocent women, children, journalists and medics who pose no threat to them whatsoever. Each police officer in the United States who adopts the mentality that such cruel and inhumane killings are justified will start to apply the same mindset to his fellow citizens, and he can no longer claim that his true intent is “to serve and protect.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Military chief who launched fear campaign against Russia accused of bombing Syrian civilians

Chief of the Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach said Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) was a “really wicked and evil enemy” that used civilians as human shields. He added that the RAF had carried out “the most carefully planned air campaign in history.”

According to its damning report on the coalition forces by Amnesty International, residents were trapped as fighting raged in the streets between IS militants and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who were supported by coalition airstrikes. Escape routes for civilians were riddled with IEDs, put there by Islamic State, which also positioned snipers to shoot those trying to flee.

Amnesty International claims that during the four-month operation to eradicate Islamic State, the US-led coalition – which includes British forces – killed hundreds of civilians and injured many more.

Peach does not accept the claims made by Amnesty International. He said any allegation of civilian harm, with evidence of time and place, was properly investigated. Peach has overseen the battle against IS as chief of the defense staff for the past two years.

Accusations made against Peach’s defense forces come months after he warned that Russia could cut off UK undersea cables in an anti-Moscow scare campaign.

Peach warned that a modernized Russian Navy, using “both nuclear and conventional submarines and ships,” could attack sea lines of communication. Less than a month later, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson was parroting the same claims to the media. He told the Guardian that “thousands and thousands” could be killed if Moscow attacked Britain’s undersea cable energy lines. The claim was dubbed anti-Russian scaremongering.

Air Chief Marshal Peach has also said “Russia is a concern,” and that the Salisbury chemical attack and cyber-attacks are “becoming more regular, almost routine.” Russia has vehemently denied any involvement in the Skripal poisoning.

Next week, he will relocate to Brussels to take on a new job as chairman of NATO’s Military Committee.

Syria’s Manbij military council rejects Turkish presence in region

Syria’s Manbij Military Council, a militia allied to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern Syria, said on Wednesday that it will not accept a Turkish military presence in the town, according to the council’s official spokesman. “We will not accept that,” council spokesman Sharfan Darwish told Reuters. Turkey and the United States on Monday reached an agreement for jointly administering Manbij. Darwish said the council was “awaiting explanations and clarification from the international US- led coalition” about the details of the agreement. The Manbij Military Council said earlier that the Kurdish YPG militia would remove its military advisers from the town in the coming days.
