Apocalypse (Revelation) 6:15
And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and tribunes, and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of mountains

Former newspaper journalist and bestselling conspiracy author Jim Marrs told radio talk show host Dave Hodges in December that some 400-500 top bank executives had left their positions and had gone into seclusion. Marrs said at the time that the elite had fallback positions from a chaotic society: seed vaults to which only they had access. “Marrs was clearly alluding to the fact that some very bad events are coming and the global elite are aware of it and are moving to meet the threat,” Hodges wrote on his radio show website.

Hodges went on to say his sources tell him that the same thing is occurring with people who have recently retired from a number of federal agencies including the CIA, DHS, NSA and FEMA.   “This fact is indisputable,” Hodges wrote. “I have firsthand knowledge of four ex-Fed officials and their families who have relocated to safety enclaves when doing so was very disruptive to their respective [families’] lives.” He said that “increasingly,” it appears as though major events are coming — life- and history-changing events that have these folks seeking “to remove themselves from harm’s way.” READ MORE

Are We Living in a Police State? If Someone Broke Into Your House Are You Just Going to Sit There If You Have the Means to Protect Your Family?

Imagine that one evening you’re at home getting ready to go to bed and suddenly there’s a knock on your kitchen door.  Nobody ever knocks this late and you’re a little nervous, so you cautiously get up to see who’s there.  Suddenly it explodes in and five or ten guys in full combat uniform swarm through the door.  They knock you down and drag you outside and one of them sits on your back and cuffs your hands together while the other points a rifle at your head.  Your wife is dragged screaming from the house and subjected to the same treatment.
Your fourteen year old daughter is brought out with a gun pointed at her head and from inside the house you hear a gunshot as your dog is shot and killed. Then one of them tells you that they’re a SWAT team doing a raid on the house because an informant has given them your address.
The men search your house and after a couple of hours come back to you, pull you to your feet, and apologize saying they were given the wrong address by their druggie informant.
Sorry about that and see you later.
They leave and your door is hanging open on broken hinges, your dog is dead, your wife and daughter are completely traumatized, and you feel like you’ve just be victimized by the good guys.
Think it couldn’t happen?
Think again.  This kind of thing happens all the time around this great country of ours.

Tough Job
I’m not here to bash the police.  Most of them are just guys out doing a tough job and trying to make the best of it.  I will say that police work does seem to draw a higher percentage of “tough guys” than other jobs, but I think that’s just the nature of the beast.  I’ve known many cops and early in my college career (fresh out of the Corps) I was studying to be a state police officer.  That changed when I took a class on child abuse and I realized that line of work wasn’t the place for a young hothead like me.  The instructor was a twenty year vet with some of the most awful stories you can imagine.  I figured I’d walk into a house somewhere and see something terrible being done to a child and I’d pop someone right in the forehead with a .40 cal – then I’d be in jail.  It was a tough decision, but I changed my major after that class.
A lot of times these raids are done for something as benign as marijuana.  In this story the cops banged on the door of an Army vet because they heard he was growing some weed.  When they mounted the assault he was inside with a gun and one cop was killed and five others were injured.  How senseless was this cop’s death?  Some people will use the argument, “Well, what he was doing was illegal.”  C’mon, it may be illegal, but the level of force used here was a little excessive for growing some weed.  Now if he was running a meth lab or had some hostages in the house or some such I could almost understand it, but for some pot?

In this story the FBI chainsawed a woman’s door down, broke in and held her at gunpoint for thirty minutes while her three year old cried in another room.  After awhile they figured out that they were in the wrong apartment – and that was after a two year investigation into drugs and weapons in that apartment complex.  Seems to me that after two years they’d pretty much have some idea of the apartment the bad guys were living in.

And here are just a few more examples:

Longview, Texas police raid wrong house


All these stories are bad, but this one takes the cake.  (If you have time you should read the full analysis by a former police officer here.)  Jose Guerena was a Jarhead back after two tours in Iraq.  He got out to join the Border Patrol, but couldn’t because of bad vision, so he got a job working at a mine to support his family.
Apparently, and for reasons that I found less than compelling, he and some of his extended family were being investigated for drugs and weapons.  At 9:30 am May 5, 2011 a Pima County, Arizona SWAT team assaulted his house and, from what I can tell through much reading, completely botched the entry and wound up shooting Jose twenty-two times.
If you read the analysis you’ll understand the raid was part of a series of raids and that the affidavit was more of a fishing expedition than an actual drug bust based on facts.
Here’s a quick synopsis of the raid:
Jose was home sleeping after working the night shift at the mine.  His wife and child were home as well and that morning she looked out the window and happened to see someone  out back with a gun.  (Her relatives had been hit not too long before by gunmen.)  She called to Jose that there were people outside with guns, so he grabbed an AR-15, put his wife and child in the closet, and went to see what was going on.

In the meantime the entry team lined up and knocked on the door.  They waited seven seconds and then knocked it down.  During the entry one of the police officers stumbled and accidentally fired his weapon causing the rest of the team to open fire and kill Guerena, who I might add did not shoot when he saw who he was facing.  It seems that if his training was sufficient to hold his fire that the SWAT team’s should have been as well.
Check out this video of the shooting.

They shot between 70 and 80 rounds and it’s a pure miracle his wife and child weren’t killed or injured as well with the wild firing they were doing.  When you watch the video remember that Jose never fired one shot in return.
After all that no narcotics were found in his home.  After Guerena was shot the cops left him laying there for over an hour before allowing EMS to help him.  The SWAT team denied accountability for the outcome of this raid and were found to be not at fault by an investigation, which is the real tragedy if you ask me.  The whole thing smelled of police cover-up right from the beginning.
At one point one of the police spokesmen said, “What reasonable person comes to the front door and points a rifle at people?”
I would say that if someone suddenly knocked my door down and rushed into my house while I was sleeping my first reaction would be exactly the same thing.  My question is, “What reasonable person would expect a man not to defend his house if he had the training and weapons with which to do it?”  After all, there have been instances of criminals pretending to be police officers where innocents wind up as victims.
So what did the police say?  “You point a gun at police, you’re going to get shot.”
Using this reasoning if someone breaks into your house and you meet them at the door with a gun pointing at them you might as well shoot whether it’s a bad guy or a cop.  Why?  Because if it’s a cop they’re going to see the gun and start shooting.  Maybe you can get lucky and shoot first, after all they have the element of surprise.  If it’s a bad guy he’s not breaking in to bring flowers to you and your family and poses a clear risk.  Shoot to kill.
That logic seems to me to be the antithesis of “To Serve and Protect.”

Is The Militarization of Police Necessary?
My question is this:  is it really necessary for the militarization of our police force at this level?  I’m not talking about tinfoil hat stuff here, but I’m concerned that local governments feel it’s necessary to send in assault teams for relatively minor things – especially when they sometimes hit the wrong home.
Oh come on, Jarhead.  It only happens once in awhile.
Sure, no big deal until it happens to you.  I don’t know about you, but I damned sure don’t want to be on the receiving end of something like this.  Here’s a question that’s probably already been answered, but what happens if they break into my house and I happen to be sitting on the couch with my gun next to me and I get the drop on them?

St. Louis County sued over warrantless arrest system

Police in St. Louis County, Missouri, have long made warrantless arrests based on a procedure known as issuing a "wanted," a federal lawsuit has claimed. The system allows arrests and 24-hour holds for "questioning" without charge or judicial oversight.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday by the ArchCity Defenders, seeks class action status for anyone arrested in this manner in the last five years.The "wanted" system of extralegal arrests was mentioned in the US Department of Justice report on policing practices in Ferguson, Missouri, one of many municipalities within St. Louis County.

The Defenders, a nonprofit that provides legal representation to low-income communities around the St. Louis region, called the "wanted" practice a systemic problem with county police protocol that ignores constitutional probable cause requirements for arrests.
"This secretive and unaccountable exercise of police power has long devastated largely impoverished black residents of St. Louis County, as hundreds of human beings have been swept from their homes, schools, and families, and brought in for 'questioning' by St. Louis County police officers who have been trained that they can arrest and detain people without warrant," the suit said.
The procedure is unconstitutional and "has no place in a free society," it added.
Thomas Harvey, executive director of the ArchCity Defenders, said the practice is widespread in the entire region, not just in St. Louis County, which surrounds the City of St. Louis on the eastern edge of Missouri. The "wanted" system, he said, has been in Missouri for years.
Furthermore, county police have used "wanteds" as "a tool for harassment for people who have exercised their right not to talk to the police,” Harvey told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The St. Louis County, its police chief Jon Belmar, and a county police officer identified only as “Walsh” are named as defendants in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Dwayne Furlow, 31, an African-American resident of the county. On January 25, Furlow declined to speak to a county police officer regarding a domestic assault allegation that was filed against him.
On January 26, the allegation was retracted, the suit said.
Yet on January 28, Furlow was stopped in Jennings by an "Officer Walsh" for driving with a suspended license, according to the suit. He was only arrested after police found there was a "wanted" out for him based on the domestic assault allegation; he was not arrested for the suspended license, the suit said. Furlow was transported to the St. Louis County Justice Center, where he refused to talk to other police officers – not Walsh – who tried to question him.

Furlow was held for 24 hours, even though his legal counsel told police he was being held without probable cause.
The suit seeks unspecified damages for Furlow's "unlawful seizure" and the deprivation of his civil rights. The suit claims the "wanted" was issued in order to retaliate against Furlow for not speaking with police. In September, Furlow was featured in a Post-Dispatch story about jail fees he and his wife had accumulated and were unable to pay.
Missouri allows municipalities to charge those they arrest with jailing fees, a system, coupled with high cash-bail costs, derided by some as "debtors prisons" in federal lawsuits filed last year. State legislation passed last year capped a municipality's level of general operating revenue generated from traffic fines at 12.5 percent.
ArchCity would seek an injunction and declaratory relief that would bar the county from utilizing the "wanted" system, Harvey told the St. Louis Business Journal.
Neither the police nor the county counselor's office have responded to media requests for comment.
Earlier this month, the Department of Justice sued the city of Ferguson after city officials voted to adopt changes to a police reform deal between the two entities. In the lawsuit, the Justice Department said that the city, via its police, municipal court system and the city's prosecuting attorney's office, "engages in an ongoing pattern or practice of conduct, including discrimination, that deprives persons of rights, privileges and immunities secured and protected by" the US Constitution and federal law.
