The U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI's new classification system.

Observe for yourself what is happening right before our eyes.

Domestic terrorism fueled by government entrapment schemes. Civil unrest stoked to dangerous levels by polarizing political rhetoric. A growing intolerance for dissent that challenges the government's power grabs. Police brutality tacitly encouraged by the executive branch, conveniently overlooked by the legislatures, and granted qualified immunity by the courts. A weakening economy exacerbated by government schemes that favor none but a select few. An overt embrace of domestic surveillance tactics if Congress goes along with the Trump Administration's request to permanently re-authorize the NSA's de-activated call records program. Heightened foreign tensions and blowback due to the military industrial complex's profit-driven quest to police and occupy the globe.

The seeds of chaos are being sown, and it's the U.S. government that will reap the harvest.

Mark my words, there's trouble brewing.

Better yet, take a look at "Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity," a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command.

The training video says a lot about the government's mindset, the way its views the citizenry, and the so-called "problems" that the government must be prepared to address in the near future through the use of martial law.

Even more troubling, however, is what this military video doesn't say about the Constitution, about the rights of the citizenry, and about the dangers of locking down the nation and using the military to address political and social problems.

The training video anticipates that all hell will break loose by 2030that's barely ten short years awaybut the future is here ahead of schedule.

We're already witnessing a breakdown of society on virtually every front.

By waging endless wars abroad, by bringing the instruments of war home, by transforming police into extensions of the military, by turning a free society into a suspect society, by treating American citizens like enemy combatants, by discouraging and criminalizing a free exchange of ideas, by making violence its calling card through SWAT team raids and militarized police, by fomenting division and strife among the citizenry, by acclimating the citizenry to the sights and sounds of war, and by generally making peaceful revolution all but impossible, the government has engineered an environment in which domestic violence is becoming almost inevitable.

The danger signs are screaming out a message

The government is anticipating trouble (read: civil unrest), which is code for anything that challenges the government's authority, wealth and power.

According to the Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command, the U.S. government is grooming its armed forces to solve future domestic political and social problems.

This is the government under Trump, though I would expect that it was also under Obama and would be the same under any neoliberal Democrat, like Biden, Buttiegeg, Harris or Booker.

If the Socialist POTUS King Con Don has a second term, there is most likely the chance he will rescind the 2-term limit.


I also see where after 2020, homeless people will become the next segment in society targeted by tRump and his base, to be carted off to the mobile dormitories near agriculture sites to replace the illegal/refugee immigrant workers; since there will be few others willing to do this work for the wage offered.


Those who have freely bloviated about their weapons caches and off-grid living retreats, and with registered weapons will be disarmed, and if violent punished as a domestic terrorist.


Next will be the Internet commenters who agree/support the armed "Patriot," unaware they lost their "freedoms" after the PNAC 9/11 and farce War of Terror is spawned. This will silence a majority of the dissenters after they see how a few are severely punished.


A repeat of history with tRump using former British spy Hitler's speeches and tweeking them to infer those to blame for the country's self-created problems will be punished/deported so the MAGA supporter will get their country back!

Oh yes, "without a doubt", "after the PNAC 9/11, the government quickly became "fully armed" with the AUMF2001, The Partriot Act, the AUMF2003, the Military Commissions Act, which enabled "a wild streak" of "hate" and "revenge" to permeate and fester in the citizenry - "all the while" 9/11 had been "pre-planted explosives caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings" - #OverwhelmingEvidence.

So far, the Democrat House Speaker Pelosi with super Democrat majorities to "impeach" has refused to "impeach" two Republican Presidents and the "horror" ("they acted with deceit and with falsehood") of what she didn't do remains irredeemable (#images - "preemptive war") for "the government" ("they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them" - US Chief Nuremberg Prosecutor Robert H Jackson).
