Fort Hood Job Posting: “Seeking Individuals To Act As Role Players… In A Mass Casualty Exercise”

Speculation as to the circumstances surrounding the most recent mass shooting at Fort Hood abounds.

A recent posting on Craigslist is fueling the fire even more, with some suggesting that it is evidence of yet another government facilitated false flag operation.

According to a March 12, 2014 snapshot of a listing on the popular classifieds web site, the government was looking for individuals to act as role players to participate in a “mass casualty exercise” scheduled for March 17, 18 and 19 and to be held on base at Fort Hood, TX. Contractors were to be paid $ 100 for their participation.

Role Players for Military mock simulated disaster (Ft Hood)

Government contractor is seeking individuals to act as role players to participate in a ” mass casualty exercise ” on the FT Hood military installation.

Role players will participate in an exercise that will replicate civilians in the area that have been injured during a disaster that is used in the scenario. Role players will be medically treated during this exercise at numerous locations on Ft Hood.

The objective of this exercise is to train and assess medical units with regards to civilians that have been injured during a disaster.

We are seeking individuals to take part in this exercise on March 17, 18 & 19 Individuals must be at least 18 years of age and legal to work in the United States.

You will be paid upon completion of the exercise on the last day of work. Please contact Michael Boyd at (954)294-0526. An appointment will be set up to meet and further information will be given.

According to Craigslist the posting has been deleted from the web site by its author. It is not clear when the deletion took place.

As has been the case with many recent acts of terrorism on U.S. soil, it seems that police or military have often been engaged in training exercises that closely mimic the actual events, often during the exact same time as the “real” event was taking place.

This was evident during the attacks of September 11, 2001 when the US military was engaged in a training exercise involving North American Air Defenses. As the attacks on the World Trade Center were taking place recordings from civilian and military operators reveal that military chain of command wasn’t sure whether the events being portrayed were “real world” or training. Experts suggest that this confusion contributed to a complete meltdown in America’s national defenses.

But September 11th isn’t the only example.

Ahead of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary the Department of Homeland Security was staging a mock exercise just minutes away.

A few days prior to the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting a university just 16 miles away had staged an exercise that eerily depicted a gunman shooting movie goers.

And, after the Boston Marathon bombing the Department of Homeland Security officially acknowledged “frighteningly similar scenarios” between an exercise dubbed Operation Urban Shield and the actual events that took place at the marathon. The drill itself was held in Boston, Massachusetts and happened to be taking place in a live environment at the Marathon and at the very moment that the bombings were being executed.

We can chalk all of this off to coincidence, but given that nearly every major terrorist act in the United States in recent years has been preceded by a military or Homeland Security exercise depicting similar scenarios within minutes of where the actual events took place, one can’t help but question the official narratives.

New Jersey Says You Must Have a “Justifiable Need” to Exercise Your Constitutional Rights

Guest post by Brian Kelly

Picture a woman going to register to vote in New Jersey only to find the State has passed a law requiring her to undergo a background check, pay a fee, show proficiency in civics and, after meeting all those requirements, having to write a summary justifying her Need to vote.

Now, after attempting to justify her need to exercise her right (let that statement sink in) she is denied by a judge who has arbitrarily determined that she didn’t have an urgent need to vote.

That judge’s lover and the local police chief’s sister-in-law however have miraculously passed all the above hurtles and can freely exercise that right with gleeful abandon.

Too farfetched? How about in the aftermath of 911, New Jersey passes a law requiring anyone wishing to practice Islam must apply for an Islam permit and show ‘justifiable need’ to pray to Allah. The State justifies this by claiming a large amount of terrorists are Islamic and therefore the Islam Permits will only be issued to very few people in order to protect the public, after all they can’t have NJ turn into the Gaza Strip.

If you find these examples offensive, you should, as they clearly violate an American’s rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and no amount of fearful justification merits such infringement. Unfortunately that same, arbitrary, subjective standard applies to most New Jersian’s right to protect themselves and their loved ones in public with a firearm.

New Jersey’s ‘Justifiable Need’ requirement to obtain a carry permit is the self defense equivalent of ‘Separate but Equal’ Jim Crow laws.

In a recent Appeal (http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/opinions/a3704-11.pdf) the judiciary continued to defend the reprehensible concept of ‘justifiable need’. “applicants for carry permits generally must show “‘an urgent necessity . . . for self-protection’” by pointing to “specific threats or previous attacks demonstrating a special danger to the applicant’s life that cannot be avoided by other means.” Preis, supra, 118 N.J. at 571 (quoting Siccardi, supra, 59 N.J. at A-3704-11T4 17 557).”

Think about that for a second. So in order to show you need to carry a weapon for self-defense, which is a basic human right, guaranteed by the constitution, you have to first suffer an attack. So in the case of the recent Short Hills Mall Shooting, now that the victim is dead at the hands of violent criminals, he might meet the ‘justifiable need’ which doesn’t do him or his grieving family any good now.

It is tantamount to the government claiming you have no justifiable need to carry an umbrella because it isn’t currently raining. Ask yourself why do we as law abiding citizens have to wait until we are raped, beaten and killed before the State can see fit to grant us a right to self-defense which is a basic human right dating back to caveman times?

The other justification sited for the clear infringement on our right to defend ourselves before we are crime statistics is unfounded fear, “And the demonstration of particularized need that serves to limit “widespread handgun possession in the streets, somewhat reminiscent of frontier days, would not be at all in the public interest.” Siccardi, supra, 59 N.J. at 558.”

This is completely proven false by the overwhelming data available from the 41 states that actually allow their citizens to carry concealed weapons, five of which are Constitutional Carry not requiring any separate permit.

They have not turned into the Wild West with people shooting each other over parking spaces. In fact, in every state that has enabled their citizens to protect themselves with a firearm violent crime has gone down across the board. Here in NJ, violent criminals know they have little to fear from their disarmed, helpless victims unlike the majority of the other States in the Union where a criminal cannot be sure their target is defenseless.

The bottom line is, we are on our own and responsible for the defense of ourselves and our loved ones. The Supreme Court ruled that individuals have no right to expect protection from the police. (Castle Rock v. Gonzales, No. 04-278). It was also held the Police do not have a duty to provide police services to individuals (Warren v. District of Columbia). We are on our own when the majority of violent crime occurs and we require the means by which to defend ourselves. You ask for ‘Justifiable Need’ and the answer is simple, self evident and at the core of our founding as a nation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.

If you are uncomfortable and wouldn’t dream of owning, let alone carrying a gun for protection that’s ok. Please, don’t deny law abiding citizens, like myself, the right a large majority of States already afford their citizens. My ability to carry is not only my best chance to protect myself and my loved ones; it could also save you and yours. In conclusion I leave you with the words of Thomas Paine from Thoughts On Defensive War,

“[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”

The Biggest Money-Printing Exercise in World History

Guest post by Martin D. Weiss

The U.S. economy is now so addicted to the Fed’s monthly $ 85 billion injection of monetary stimulus … that just the thought of withdrawal is enough to cause violent market convulsions.

Consider, for example, the absurdity of this recent chain of events:

* The U.S. Labor Department announces a far better-than-expected report on new jobs …

* Investors fear that the good economic news may nudge the Fed a tad closer to cutting back its stimulus …

* They dump their investments by the truckload, and …

* Bond prices plunge the most in four months, driving interest rates skyward.

All in response to supposedly good news about the economy!

All because investors would rather see the economy sink than see the Fed cut back on its monthly megadose of money shot up their veins.

Or consider the long sequence of excuses Fed Chairman Bernanke has offered for smashing the 100-year Fed prohibition against running the money printing presses 24/7 …

First, he said they had no choice because of the great debt crisis of 2008.

“Unless we flood the banking system with money,” went the argument, “megabanks will fail and global financial markets will collapse in a heap of rubble.”

Second, as soon as the worst of the debt crisis was apparently behind us, they promptly came up with a brand new rationale: Trillion-dollar federal budget deficits year after year.

“Unless we buy Treasuries by the truckload,” they reasoned, “the deficits will smash the bond markets and sabotage the economic recovery.”

Next in the long line-up of excuses came the European debt crisis, the Fiscal Cliff and, most recently, the government shutdown.

Each time, the Fed kept the pedal to the metal on its giant money presses. And each time, there was a new crisis to justify their reckless DUI.

Yellen takes the cake …

In the Forked Tongue category, wannabe Fed chief Janet Yellen has now eclipsed Fed Chairman Bernanke for the first prize.

In her testimony before Congress this week, she says little or nothing about the 2008 debt crisis, federal deficits, European debacles, fiscal cliffs or any others which were among her predecessor’s favorite excuses for the unprecedented money printing she vows to pursue.

Nor does she talk much about a weak economy.

Instead, her new rationale is that, although the economy has improved, it hasn’t quite improved “enough.”

As Mike Larson eloquently notes, it seems the “not-improved-enough” argument is all that’s needed to justify continue running the Fed’s printing presses — and doing so at the same speed as Bernanke did in the immediate aftermath of the Lehman Brothers collapse.

The end result is vividly illustrated in the above chart

It tracks the U.S. monetary base, a direct measure of how much money the Fed has been printing — and injecting into the banking system.

It depicts how the sheer magnitude of the Fed’s monstrous expansion is mind-boggling in the extreme.

To better comprehend this monster, start by looking at the relatively gradual slope of growth in the 1990s and 2000s — before the Lehman Brothers failure. And bear in mind that even that “slower” pace was considered irresponsibly rapid by many experts.

Next, look at the sudden explosion that began immediately after the Lehman Brothers failure! That’s when the Fed threw all its old rule books into the East River. And that’s when the Fed flew off on a new, high-risk trajectory into the outer space of monetary policy.

Then, see how the Fed’s immediate response to post-Lehman crisis (QE1) was replicated not just once, but twice — with QE2 and QE3.

Last, consider these outrageous facts:

Fact #1. Immediately prior to the Lehman Brothers failure, the Fed reports that the monetary base stood at $ 849.8 billion.

This past October 30, it was $ 3,607.7 billion. That’s an expansion of $ 2,757.8 billion — over $ 2.7 trillion.

Fact #2. This $ 2.7 trillion expansion has all taken place within just six years and one month.

If, instead, the Fed had continued to expand the monetary base at a normal pace (by the same amount as it had since 1961), it would have taken nearly 150 years to come this far. In other words …

With normal growth, the Fed’s recent $ 2.7 trillion monetary expansion would not have been achieved until the year 2158!

Fact #3. Prior to 2008, there were only two times the Fed embarked on extremely rapid monetary explosion of this type — first in anticipation of the widely feared Y2K bug; and later, in the aftermath of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. But as of the latest tally, the post-Lehman QEs have been

  • a whopping 43 times larger than the dramatic Y2K expansion, and …
  • an unbelievable 69.5 times larger than the Fed’s explosive reaction to 9/11.

The most alarming fact of all is this …

While the Fed has used crisis after crisis to justify its monetary madness, it has not yet begun to resolve the underlying diseases that gave rise to those crises. It has merely papered over their symptoms.

No Negotiation: China and Russia Walk Out of UN Security Council Meeting: “This Isn’t An Exercise”

earthonfire

As Jerome Corsi warned earlier today, “this is one of the most serious moments that we’ve ever faced in world history.”

Events are happening quickly and as it stands, the United States, Britain and other western allies are preparing a missile strike on Syria.

Russia has been the most critical opponent of the possibility of mid east military action, but now China has also stepped in.

Russia and China have stepped up their warnings against military intervention in Syria, with Moscow saying any such action would have “catastrophic consequences” for the region.

BBC via Zero Hedge

And moments ago the Interfax new agency announced that China and Russia have left the negotiating table in response to a proposal for Britain’s David Cameron on pending intervention in Syria.

UN-SECURITY/COUNCIL-RUSSIA-CHINA DUBAI. Aug 28 (Interfax)

Russian and Chinese representatives have left the UN Security Council session that discussed the draft resolution on Syria proposed by Great Britain.

We could be days away from the start of a conflict the likes of which the world has never seen before.

The United States and Britain are pushing forward with plans to execute a “brief and limited” strike on Syrian targets, but all signs suggest it will turn into much more than that. In January of 2012 the United States positioned 100,000 soldiers off the coast of Iran, and just last weekend it was reported that hundreds of US soldiers and intelligence assets had moved into Syria ahead of the attack.

In response, Syria has warned it will immediately target Israel with Russian supplied advanced weaponry. Syria’s closest ally in the region, Iran, has echoed the threat and warned that it, too, will turn its military capabilities on Israel.

This is a game changer. Any response by Israel against Arab nations would turn the entire middle east against the U.S. led coalition.

According to a report from the LA Times, that’s exactly what Israel intends to do.

“We are not part of the civil war in Syria, but if we identify any attempt whatsoever to harm us, we will respond with great force,” Netanyahu said after huddling for a second consecutive day with key Cabinet members to discuss the possible ramifications of a U.S. strike against Syria.

Armies are mobilizing, and that includes Russian troops, who are reportedly now being deployed in Syria to help Assad defend against “rebel forces,” which adds additional strength to the 160,000 Russian troops mobilized in the region earlier this summer. Furthermore, the Russian Navy deployed nearly its entire Pacific fleet to the Mediterranean in May.

Moreover, after a meeting with Saudi Arabia in which the Saudi head of intelligence directly threatened Vladimir Putin with terrorist attacks during the coming winter Olympic games in Russia if they didn’t let the U.S. move forward with their plans in Syria, President Putin has reportedly responded with the threat of a massive counter-strike against the Saudi Arabian monarchy.

This isn’t an exercise.

The writing is on the wall.

The militaries of the most powerful nations on Earth are preparing to engage.

If President Obama initiates a missile strike on Syria, however limited in scope, it could set the whole world ablaze.
