Tinfoil Tuesday: The Empire’s Veteran Problem

August 28th, 2012

Veterans pose a pretty unique problem for an empire. They hang around as a constant reminder that some of its military adventures were not entirely victories. They provide compelling evidence that it doesn’t keep its promises, especially in the realm of medical care, even to those who have sacrificed everything for it. But perhaps most importantly, veterans who have thrown their bodies into the meat grinders of the military industrial complex and survived to tell about it… tend to be pretty outspoken. And they speak with an authority that’s hard to match by a mere community organizer or a crony capitolist. So what are imperialists to do with all those pesky veterans, making them look bad, and trying to hold them accountable…

Last Thursday, former Marine Brandon Raub, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was detained by the FBI and local authorities for posting “anti-government” song lyrics on facebook. Although he was forcefully detained he was not charged with any criminal offense. Welcome to the NDAA America. Posts he made railing against government corruption, taking America back from the bankers and ending the Federal Reserve were “flagged by pre-crime surveillance” whatever that means, and then he was picked up when he posted song lyrics that could be construed as advocating violence. Of course by calling it a psychiatric detention they can force him to take psychiatric medication. Roub reports that one of the psychiatrists assigned to him threatened to “brainwash” him, but he has so far refused the drugs at the psychiatric hospital where he is being held. I guess this is how they silence dissent now, drug those who would speak out into an unintelligible haze.

Roub’s attorney John Whitehead discussed how the government violated his client’s first amendment rights with RT. But what’s most significant to this discussion is what he said during an appearance on Glen Beck. This is not an endorsement of Glen Beck (although I will endorse that snappy tie) Here’s the full interview. Well worth a watch.

What’s important is that Whitehead said:

“Veterans have called me, and veterans organizations, and said this is happening across the country. So, I’ve got all these calls now from veterans saying ‘This happened to me. Will you look into my case.’ We’re putting them all together, but the point is this is happening across America and this is not anything new. We’ve been asleep”

He reports that veterans all over the country are being targeted when they “say something the government doesn’t like.” Roub is reportedly a “Ron Paul libertarian, and a 9/11 Truther.” More alarming, when Beck asked if other people, specifically members of Occupy Wall Street, could be targeted Whitehead responded:

“The Truth is I don’t know. Because what happens is people just disappear… I’m getting calls from everybody now. This is happening all across America, and I think veterans are being targeted. But anybody the government perceives as a threat can be arrested and put in a mental institution.”

But it gets weirder. A DHS Whistleblower contacted Douglas J. Hagmann, director of Northeast Intelligence Network. According to the anonymous source (codename “Rosebud”), the highest levels of the uppermost echelon of the Department of Homeland Security are “actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States” which he clarified as meaning “a civil war.” He went on to say, “certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it.”

The plan is to instill the idea that veterans are being recruited by “right-wing extremists” to carry out acts of lone wolf domestic terrorism. Rosebud states that there is a planned false flag attack that will involve a staged assassination attempt on President Obama, and it will be used to justify martial law.

It’s spooky to think about, but consider this.

Wade Michael Page, the gunman behind the Sikh Temple shooting was a US veteran. The motive behind the shooting is yet unknown, but the leading theory is that it was intended as an anti-Muslim attack because many people mistake Sikhs for Muslims. I find this highly implausible. In the military he would have received the standard training all personnel receive about the religion of Islam. Also, he reportedly called the Temple early in the day and asked when it would be the most crowded. So, we’re expected to believe that he looked up the phone number but didn’t notice it was listed as a Sikh temple and not a mosque?

Nidal Malik Hasan, the gunman behind the Fort Hood shooting was also a US veteran. And of course, the official motive behind the shooting is that Hasan was radicalized by trading emails with an Imam in Yemen (who incidentally was at one time allegedly a CIA asset). These two men could not have less in common. Page a white supremacist, and Hasan a muslim extremist. So, obviously the shootings are unconnected. And yet both have connections in military psychiatry. Hasan a military  psychiatrist, and Page a psychological operations specialist. Throw in the highly medicated James Holmes, whose father Dr. Robert Holmes helped to develop the DARPA funded “cortronic neural networks” that enable machines to simulate human thinking, and a disturbing pattern emerges.

If veterans are a liability… maybe the empire can turn them into an asset, but using them to facilitate civil unrest. It has been the practice of virtually every fascist or communist authoritarian regime to declare their political opposition insane and have them disappeared. But is it possible that this one is using the latest psychiatric drugs and neuroscience to turn them into patsies in their false flag operations?
