Mike Sunnucks, writing for the Phoenix Business Journal, reports that Arizona state and local police “say they have broad plans to deal with social unrest, including trouble resulting from economic distress. The security and police agencies declined to give specifics, but said they would employ existing and generalized emergency responses to civil unrest that arises for any reason.”
The Phoenix Police Department told the newspaper it has a Tactical Response Unit that trains “continually and has deployed on many occasions for any potential civil unrest issue,” according to Phoenix Police spokesman Andy Hill. Scottsdale Police spokesman Mark Clark said his department has similar plans “in place for such civil unrest.”
The Phoenix Business Journal notes Clark, Hill and other local police officials said the region did plenty of planning and emergency management training for the Super Bowl in February in Glendale. The training at the Super Bowl included personnel and resources from the Department of Homeland Security and the Northern Command, which coordinated with Arizona officials.
As Infowars and Prison Planet have documented, Northern Command is specifically tasked with implementing martial law under Continuity of Government. The Military Commissions Act of 2006 voided restrictions placed on the military to support civilian administration by the Posse Comitatus Act, the latter restricting the military from working with local law enforcement. In addition to the Military Commissions Act of 2006, a 1994 U.S. Defense Department Directive (DODD 3025) allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations.
A recent report by the U.S. Army War College discusses the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used in the event of civil unrest due to the economic crisis, “such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks,” according to the Phoenix Business Journal.
On December 16, Steve Watson and Paul Watson detailed the U.S. Army War College report, entitled Known Unknowns: Unconventional Strategic Shocks in Defense Strategy Development.
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” writes [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir for the U.S. Army War College. “Deliberate employment of weapons of mass destruction or other catastrophic capabilities, unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters are all paths to disruptive domestic shock.”
In other words, any organized political response to the engineered bankster economic crisis will be considered “resistance or insurgency” and will be dealt with by the military and militarized local law enforcement, the former trained to kill people and break things.
On December 16, the International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned of economic riots and widespread civil unrest if the financial crisis is not addressed.
Last month Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, predicted a depression of a magnitude worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s, tax rebellions, and possibly a popular revolution against the government. On December 15, Paul Joseph Watson reported Celente updating his prediction by stating “that America will see riots similar to those currently ongoing in Greece and that the cause will be a hyper-inflationary depression, leading to the inevitable use of troops and mercenaries to deal with the crisis as Americans are incarcerated in internment camps.”
The fact that a corporate media newspaper such as the Phoenix Business Journal is now telling us police are trained with the assistance of Northcom and the Department of Homeland Security to respond to civil unrest spawned by economic unrest should be a wake-up call to all Americans that the government is planning to institute martial law.
No doubt, in the weeks to come, the corporate media will increase the drumbeat of the possibility of civil unrest and violence related to the bankster engineered economic crisis designed to usher in a global currency and an all-encompassing global government.
