Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
after all, the deep state is certainly preparing as if it is:

One business owner in the United States tells me that InfraGard members are being advised on how to prepare for a martial law situation--and what their role might be. He showed me his InfraGard card, with his name and e-mail address on the front, along with the InfraGard logo and its slogan, "Partnership for Protection." On the back of the card were the emergency numbers that Schneck mentioned.

This business owner says he attended a small InfraGard meeting where agents of the FBI and Homeland Security discussed in astonishing detail what InfraGard members may be called upon to do.
"The meeting started off innocuously enough, with the speakers talking about corporate espionage," he says. "From there, it just progressed. All of a sudden we were knee deep in what was expected of us when martial law is declared. We were expected to share all our resources, but in return we'd be given specific benefits." These included, he says, the ability to travel in restricted areas and to get people out.

But that's not all.

"Then they said when--not if--martial law is declared, it was our responsibility to protect our portion of the infrastructure, and if we had to use deadly force to protect it, we couldn't be prosecuted," he says.

it's going to get very interesting as the economic and energy chickens come home to roost. doubly so as the iraq vets come home to a wrecked economy and no treatment.

As has been said before, "they" are getting better at derailing collective behavior. The key tactic is to interrupt communication, and convince people that they are just isolated, powerless dingbats, and real power comes from kissing the oligarch's asses--a la Infraguard.


The Achilles heel of the consumer society's rulers is the ability of the people to bring the biggest corporation to it's knees by simply withholding their trade. It's necessary to cooperate to do this, however.

See? Those subversive "CO- words" again.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
