Back in late 2010, the Army Corps of Engineers inadvertently posted information about Northcom’s CONPLAN 3502, included within information about a FEMA-simulated earthquake drill called National Level Exercise 2011.
Operation Garden Plot was established under the cover of race riots in the 1960s.
The documents reveal how a secret Pentagon Civil Disturbance Operations plan calls for military-operated detention and search operations within the United States. It is mentioned in a Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) Handbook that was prepared by the Army’s Joint Test and Evaluation Command. It was also mentioned by General Victor E. Renuart, Northcom commander, in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee’s subcommittee on Terrorism and Unconventional Threats and Capabilities on March 5, 2008.
More information can be found here. IndyMedia provided extrensive coverage, not that the New York Times or the Washington Post noticed. The establishment press was uniformly silent.
CONPLAN 3502 surfaced again this week as the Brits scrambled to confront riots sweeping their country.

A shocking Department of Homeland Security video that caused outrage yesterday after it depicted white Americans as the most likely terrorists only confirms that the federal government is now profiling middle class America as the main terror threat, something that becomes made abundantly clear when one studies the history of training manuals and other literature put out by the feds that identifies politically active US citizens as domestic extremists.
Far from representing some superficial nod to political correctness, this is in fact a deliberate effort by the feds to characterize white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists. It’s all part of the agenda to frame dissent against big government as dangerous radicalism.
Contrary to claims by the DHS that it does not profile, the bulk of literature and other training tools issued by the federal government over the last decade clearly go to great lengths to demonize informed, middle class, and predominately white Americans as the most likely terrorists, despite the fact that the 126 people who were indicted on terrorist-related charges in the United States over the last two years were all Muslim.
Following widespread outrage yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security has ludicrously denied that a video it released encouraging Americans to report suspicious activity contains “racial overtones,” despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of people depicted as terrorists in the clip are white middle class Americans.
The Department of Homeland Security was forced to issue a terse response to the controversy. The DHS confirm “the video is theirs but adamantly deny there are any racial or politically correct overtones to it.”
Really? Then why out of all the scenarios shown in the video that depict terrorists are no less than 12 of them white people and only three are minorities? In addition, of the people depicted as patriotic Americans for reporting the terrorists, only one of them is white seven are from minorities.
Furthermore, at the start of the clip, the majority of citizens depicted as proud Americans and potential victims of terror are from minorities. Examples of terrorists who have been arrested in recent years are shown later in the clip – four are white Americans and only one is a foreign Muslim.
The flying public has chosen its new folk hero and it is Yukari Miyamae, a 61-year-old Colorado woman who was arrested for allegedly groping a female Transportation Security Administration agent at Phoenix's international airport.
Miyamae is accused of grabbing the left breast of an agent at a security checkpoint last Thursday and was facing a felony count of sexual abuse. After reviewing the case, prosecutors for the county declined to file felony charges against Miyamae, according to the Associated Press.
One Facebook page titled "Yukari Miyamae Legal Defense Fund" at first described Miyamae as "the 'Rosa Parks' of US aviation." It later changed its description to "Support Yukari Miyamae, wrongly accused of sexually assaulting a TSA agent." The comparison didn't end there, though. On the "Acquit Yukari Mihamae" Facebook page, which had nearly 2,600 likes as of press time, commenter James Kress wrote, "Yukari is a 21st Century Rosa Parks!"
If the comparison is overblown, if not offensive, it seems to reflect the widespread public anger about aggressive airport pat-downs and the frustration of fliers who don't feel they can speak out against what they see as invasive screening methods.
Since the story broke on Saturday evening, a groundswell of public support for Miyamae has emerged online. Many of the 700-plus comments on the original msnbc.com story about the altercation were also supportive of Miyamae. The commenter Bob in Oklahoma wrote, "Why is it 'sexual assault' when Ms. Mihamae grabs a TSA agent's breast, but perfectly hunky-dory when the TSA agent does the same thing to a passenger? Ms. Mihamae didn't check the agent's diaper, did she?" The commenter was referring to a recent episode in which the TSA checked a 94-year-old woman's adult diaper before permitting her to fly.
Big government tyranny filters through to localities
Small government is increasingly taking a leaf out of the book of big government throughout the US with fresh reports of another city council railing against free speech and the right to assembly.
As Fox 16 news reports, in Gould, Arkansas, the City Council has moved to ban all gatherings and groups, no matter how small from discussing city matters without prior permission from the authorities.
A proposed ordinance would even extend to residents’ own homes and is so broad in its reach that it covers boy scout groups and book clubs. Even dinner table conversations about the local community would technically be outlawed.
“You can’t just come in here, get with four people and decide to start an organization,” Gould City Councilor Sonja Farley told the reporters, adding, “You will go through your city council with legal documentation and get approval.”
The city mayor, Earnest Nash, is standing up for the people of Gould and fiercely opposing the move.
“They can take me to court,” said Nash. “This is America and even though this is Gould, Arkansas, this is still part of America. And in America, you can’t just vote and violate peoples constitutional rights.”
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security, the parent agency of the TSA, have claimed that a Congressman violated federal law by disclosing to the press details of 25,000 security breaches over the past ten years, despite the fact that the documents from which he gleaned the information were non-classified.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) received a letter last week outlining the charge from Homeland Security Deputy Counsel Joseph B. Maher, following a Congressional oversight hearing on the TSA last Wednesday.
During the hearing Chaffetz disclosed information about the security breaches, which made headlines in USA Today and several other newspapers.
Chaffetz’s opening statement from the hearing can be viewed in the video below:
The entire hearing can be viewed at the foot of the article.
“This document was marked as [Sensitive Security Information],” Maher wrote in the letter which was seen by The Washington Post, “and provided clear notice that unauthorized disclosures of the document violated federal law.”
Police in Midway, Georgia shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls trying to make money for a trip to a water park in Savannah because the youngsters didn’t have the license and permits required for their fledgling enterprise. City ordinances require a business license, a peddler’s permit, and a food permit for the vending of food or beverages, even on residential property in the small city (pop. approximately 1,100) just south of Savannah. The license and permits cost $50 a day or $180 a year, according to Coastal Source, a website of Savannah TV stations WJCL and WTGS.
So the girls shut down their stand and are doing yard work and other chores to make money.
“They told us to shut it down,” 10-year-old Skylar Roberts reported. “It’s kind of crazy that we couldn’t sell lemonade,” said Casity Dixon, 14. “It was fun, but we had to listen to the cops and shut it down.”
The stand had been operating just one day when the city’s police chief and a deputy drove by and spotted it. Police Chief Kelly Morningstar said it was simply a matter of enforcing the law.
“We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance,” Morningstar said. “We had told them, we understand you guys are young, but still, you’re breaking the law, and we can’t let you do it anymore. The law is the law, and we have to be consistent with how we enforce the laws,” Morningstar said.
The news generated a number of responses on the website, most of them hostile to the police action.
The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that the TSA violated federal law by rolling out radiation firing body scanners in airports without soliciting public comment. The court will allow use of the scanners to continue, however.
A unanimous three-judge panel ruled that the TSA’s failure to provide notice and allow sufficient time for comment before adopting the technology as a primary passenger-screening tool was unlawful.
“[M]uch public concern and media coverage have been focused upon issues of privacy, safety, and efficacy, each of which no doubt would have been the subject of many comments had the TSA seen fit to solicit comments upon a proposal to use [advanced imaging technology] for primary screening,” the court said.
Specifically, the TSA’s actions violated the Administrative Procedure Act, which requires federal agencies to provide notice and opportunity for comment when implementing a rule that affects the rights of the public.
Judge Douglas Ginsburg found there was “no justification for having failed to conduct a notice-and-comment rulemaking,” and said, “few if any regulatory procedures impose directly and significantly upon so many members of the public.”
The court said that the roll out of body scanners could not be “merely interpretive, procedural, or a general statement of policy.”
Most people don't know the Federal Reserve is controlled by the largest private banks. They are using their control of the Fed to destroy the dollar, our economy and wipe out the middle class so they can replace it with a system and currency they have even MORE control of. If we don't shut down the bankers, the Federal Reserve, this nation is history! The Congress can REPEAL THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT and return control over our currency to "We The People." We have to take back control of Congress and DEMAND THIS HAPPEN in the upcoming election!
