Back in 1967, National Guard and Army troops were deployed by Gov. Romney and LBJ to handle race riots in Detroit.

The worst unrest since the Civil War draft riots and until the 1992 Rodney King riots in L.A., chaos in Detroit resulted in 43 dead, 1,189 injured, over 7,200 arrests, and more than 2,000 buildings destroyed, according to Wikipedia.

Much of the disorder, which led to outright martial law, was captured by news cameras and remains available through archive film.

Take a look at just some of the disaster that was 1967 Detroit, and what could be played out again in Ferguson 2014:

The Anti-Media cataloged this, and several other incidents where martial law was implemented in recent decades.

Ultimately, order was only restored at the hands of the National Guard and military-style command-and-control structure.

This time in Ferguson, Gov. Jay Nixon has already preemptively ordered martial law in anticipation of the Darren Wilson grand jury decision and expected riots in protest of a decision not to prosecute the police officer who shot Michael Brown. Of course, riot police have already been used against sometimes violent protesters there since the August shooting incident.

How bad could things get? Take a look at some of the video from past cases where violence and unrest from the public was met with violence and strong-armed tactics by the National Guard, Army troops or police.

Via TheAntiMedia:

The Race Riots: During the 1960s, waves of protest swept the United States for a variety of reasons. The most prominent riots erupted largely due to African-­American frustrations with institutionalized racism, from economic inequality to police injustice. The riots were almost always inspired by relations with police, if not sparked directly by incidents of police abuse. In urban centers across the country, governments relied on armies of cops and the activation of thousands of National Guardsmen to shut down waves of often violent protest and looting.

1965 Watts Riots (L.A.): Race tensions in this infamous Los Angeles neighborhood ultimately led to 34 deaths, 1,032 injuries, 3,438 arrests, and over $40 million in property damage during six days of rioting, as Wikipedia notes.

Obvious anger fomented after the conspiratorial murder of civil rights leader MLK in April 1968:

Further, following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968 (which the FBI may have assisted), African-Americans were outraged and rioted again. This prompted activation of multiple state National Guards and amounted to thousands of troops per city, including Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.

In the aftermath, riots erupted in some 125 U.S. cities. Two days after the April 4 assassination, Baltimore rioted for a full week, leading to National Guard, Maryland State Troops and a further request for federal troops:

April 1968 Baltimore Riots (following MLK Assassination): Baltimore, along with Washington, D.C., Chicago, Louisville and Kansas City saw the worst riots.

The Anti-War Movement: In 1968, the trend of dissent against the state continued. This time, it was against the Vietnam War. The National Guard was activated in Chicago, Illinois to shut down protests at the Democratic National Convention, where scorned President Lyndon B. Johnson, had chosen not to seek re-election. Protesters (and eventually, rioters), were discontent with the corruption and warmongering of the leftist faction of the two-­party system and thousands took to the streets. In addition tothousands of police officers who instigated violence, the National Guard helped to put down the dissent and break up the protests.

The 1968 DNC convention riots were a show of extreme force and a media disaster for authorities, as Chicago Mayor Daley unleashed some 23,000 police and National Guard to meet an estimated 10,000 protesters. Police, accused of starting the riot, were witnessed beating a young boy waving a flag, and using an excessive amount of tear gas that ultimately disturbed presidential candidate Hubert Humphrey in a nearby hotel.

TheAntiMedia notes also the related May 4, 1970 Kent State Massacre, also documented on film:

When that proved, unsurprisingly, to be a short-term solution, protests continued. Three years later at Kent State University, Ohio governor James Rhodes found it appropriate to summon nearly 1,000 National Guardsmen at yet another protest against the ongoing Vietnam War. In the now notorious stand-­off, four university students were murdered by the National Guard (who were called to “keep the peace in a protest for…peace). Eight more were wounded.  The Guard claimed they were returning fire, but no evidence supported that claim.

The Rodney King Riots: In April of 1992,­ police officers were acquitted of the brutal 1991 beating of intoxicated black motorist Rodney King in northern Los Angeles. The verdict defied video evidence and riots broke out across Los Angeles. Nearly 10,000 National Guard troops were called upon to stop the riots and looting. This proved that the government’s tactic of sending in troops to stop violent protests (precipitated by violence and racism by the government) as it had in the 1960s had failed. It also proved that the state refused to learn its lesson.

While there are definitely significant threats to social order that may justify the presence of National Guard and riot police in these past cases, and today in Ferguson, their presence underscores the disconnect between the people of society, who feel pushed into response, and the enforcers/rulers of society, who feel pushed into control and force:

Clearly, governments have a tendency to call in the National Guard when “order” is disturbed.

Even more so, the National Guard is deemed necessary when the people revolt against oppressive treatment from government. Though riots and violence are never preferable, calling in the National Guard to treat symptoms of underlying abuse is like prescribing pills to treat disease without examining diet or lifestyle.

To be clear, the National Guard is often called in when violence erupts, but while it may be effective at stopping that superficial violence (by threatening or using violence), it reliably provides an excuse for the government to ignore the original reasons for that “unrest.”

Regarding Ferguson, TheAntiMedia writes:

Regardless, calling troops in signals that the government has no desire to accommodate the people. Rather, it would prefer to continue perpetuating the problems that led them to summon the Guard in the first place.

For those who want to prepare for possible breakdowns in civil order and any other contingencies that may come up, consider these resources:

Rand Paul: Obama is Betraying the Founding Principles of America

Rand Paul: Obama is Betraying the Founding Principles of America

“I will not sit idly by”

Paul Joseph Watson

Rand Paul shot back at Barack Obama’s vow to use executive orders to implement his amnesty program by accusing the President of betraying the founding principles of America.

The Kentucky Senator issued a statement in the immediate aftermath of Obama’s immigration speech vowing not to let him violate the Constitution;

“President Obama is not above the law and has no right to issue Executive Amnesty. His actions blatantly ignore the Separations of Powers and the principles our country was founded on. The President has said 22 times previously that he does not have the power to legislate on immigration,” Sen. Paul said. “I believe that immigration reform is needed, however for true and effective reform, we must first secure the border. I will not sit idly by and let the President bypass Congress and our Constitution.”

Meanwhile, Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado Springs has dared to suggest the possibility of impeaching Obama over his executive action, featuring a poll on his website which includes impeachment as an option on how Republicans should respond to Obama’s amnesty plan.

Establishment Republicans are loathe to consider impeachment because they fear it would create a rallying point point for Democrats and lead to Hillary Clinton becoming a serious contender for the 2016 presidential election.

Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News Radio that impeachment may be the only “lawful remedy” to Obama’s amnesty program, noting that the President is limited to prosecutorial discretion when it comes to immigration.

“At some point, the extent to which the President exercises his prosecutorial discretion runs the risk of re-writing the law or nullifying the law, so if there are 11 or 12 or 13 (million) foreign nationals living in the United States illegally and the President says to half of them we will not deport you if you do A, B, C, D and E, and he makes up the A, B, C, D and E, it does not come from the law, he is effectively re-writing the law or nullifying the law and that the Constitution doesn’t permit,” said Napolitano, adding that Obama is violating his oath.

The Judge added that Obama went ahead with his action because he knew that Republicans in the leadership would not push ahead with impeachment.

However, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) went further, suggesting that Obama could even face prison, noting that there is a federal statute which punishes anyone who, “aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States of America” with up to five years jail time.

Doctors: Potential Ebola Cases Still ‘Covered Up By CDC’

CDC reportedly ‘disappearing’ patients

Doctors: Potential Ebola Cases Still ‘Covered Up By CDC’

Anthony Gucciardi
Ebola continues to spread wildly in Sierra Leone as experts project that virtually all major cities in the United States will face imported cases of Ebola amid the failed response of the CDC. The nightly news says the story on the disease is ‘closed,’ but medical doctors around the country happen to disagree — and overwhelmingly so. In fact, medical professionals are now speaking out privately and publicly about the ‘cover up’ of potential Ebola cases that they say may end up with their careers on the line.

It was back in October when I shared a story regarding some extremely powerful information that one of my medical doctors contacts stationed in Dallas had shared with me. The CDC, this individual said, was coming into hospitals and visiting patients who were reported to have ‘signs of malaria’. What’s much more disturbing, however, is that the CDC was reportedly ‘disappearing’ these patients — even going as far as to remove their actual records from the hospital database.

Surely a serious claim, and one that I had shared with the audience hoping that we could simply find an alternative answer to these disappearances. At least one that did not revolve around the cover up of a serious Ebola outbreak within our borders. It was hard to ignore, though, with even former Border Patrol agents speaking out over sightings of the CDC coming in and ‘snatching up’ individuals with flu-like symptoms.

What happened next, however, solidified the message of my Dallas contact in a very real way.

It was then, after sharing this story on air, that the brave Dr. James Lawrenzi called into the program and said that he had also witnessed similar circumstances: even going as far as to mention other key elements that I had not yet mentioned on air while conveying my report. In his experience and statement, Dr. Lawrenzi discussed how medical professionals from the CDC were in fact looking at these cases of ‘malaria’ in a very strange way. Especially when these ‘malaria’ cases exhibited symptoms that typically coincide with an Ebola infection.

Lawrenzi independently verified additional claims by doctors who we have personally spoken to regarding the state of unpreparedness within these institutions to handle even a single case of Ebola, the rapidly declining moral of medical staff who continually threaten to quit their jobs in the event of an Ebola patient being taken under care of the hospital, and the complete lack of concern from the CDC when it comes to medical doctors relaying these concerns to the agency.

You can see the video of Dr. Lawrenzi’s statements for yourself below:

But Dr. Lawrenzi’s statements, nor the statements of other medical doctors who have reached out conveying the same message and agreeing with my overall assessment, are not the focal point of this latest news. In the latest development on the Ebola case, doctors are now ‘freaking out’ over how families, lawyers, and eventually the public are going to respond to the ‘disappeared cases.’

Doctors ‘Freaking Out’ Over ‘Continued Ebola Cover Up’

The latest news from the medical doctors who have been in the thick of what they say are the disappearance of potential Ebola cases is that these medical professionals believe that they may in fact be the ones taking the heat for the CDC’s alleged actions. Specifically, we’re talking about what happens when families and investigative journalists really start looking into this in a big way.

Just speaking with one of the lead doctors in the Dallas area, they were concerned about ‘relatives going around talking about how their family members had died of Ebola’ — something that has reportedly already been ‘causing problems.’ The mainstream media, of course, can be trusted to stay completely silent about this entire timeline. Let’s not forget the quote which was published (and later retracted) on Forbes by an adjunct professor at Duke University Medical Center:

“The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.”

And remember, it’s not hard to believe that the federal government would quell public fear over the Ebola outbreak in the United States by silently quarantining and disappearing potential patients. It’s, in fact, extremely easy to grasp. The government would love nothing more than to buy enough time to prepare adequate pandemic response (such as the acquisition of 250,000 hazmat suits sent directly to Dallas).

The reality is that doctors, other medical experts, and even former senior level Border Patrol agents have spoken out over the apparent cover up of potential Ebola victims within the US — with some sharing their story with millions. Many will not speak publicly about what they have seen for fear of repercussion from not only their partners and employers, but from the public and the federal government. These reports are serious, and they have serious and troubling meaning for this nation if they are, in fact, centered around an Ebola cover up campaign aimed at halting the spread of fear throughout the general public.

Watch: Infowars reporter Paul Joseph Watson speaks with former Border Patrol Agent Zach Taylor as he breaks down how the CDC is working with Border Patrol authorities and the Department of Homeland Security to disappear potential Ebola victims attempting to cross the border into the United States.

Network TV Blackout on Obama’s Amnesty Address: Only Univison, Telemundo to Carry Live Immigration Announcement

Thursday evening will mark a momentous announcement from President Obama

Network TV Blackout on Obama’s Amnesty Address: Only Univison, Telemundo to Carry Live Immigration Announcement

Mac Salvo

Thursday evening will mark a momentous announcement from President Obama concerning his hugely controversial executive order to “shield” and otherwise legalize millions of ‘undocumented’ illegal immigrants living in the United States.

But is this tide turning presidential address scheduled to be carried live on TV for all the country to witness?

No. It seems that the big four networks – ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox – have all opted out of broadcasting the 15 minute speech, instead airing their November sweeps shows as scheduled in hopes of maximizing viewer ratings:

The administration announced today that POTUS will be speaking live from the White House at 8 PM ET on Thursday. ABC has the fall finale for Grey’s Anatomy on at that time while CBS has ratings powerhouse  The Big Bang Theory, NBC has reality show The Biggest Loser and Fox has Bones. As of right now, three of those networks will not see any changes in their November sweep schedules due to the speech.

While Obama’s speech will be seen on their cable news siblings, Fox and NBC  are not carrying it live on their broadcast networks tomorrow night.

Out of sight, out of mind?

Is Obama Trying to Cause Civil Unrest in America?

Obama Administration chooses to announce controversial amnesty plan at same time as Officer darren Wilson verdict

 Paul Joseph Watson

By choosing to announce his extremely controversial executive agenda on amnesty at almost precisely the same time the verdict in the shooting death of Michael Brown is expected to be announced, President Barack Obama risks causing civil unrest in America.

The timing is so senseless that it almost looks like Obama is deliberately trying to stir up domestic disorder.

Police departments across the country are preparing for riots in the aftermath of what many expect to be the acquittal of Officer Darren Wilson, a decision expected to be made within the next 36 hours.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn warns that Obama’s plan to legalize as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants, set to be announced tonight, threatens to cause bedlam.

“The country’s going to go nuts, because they’re going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it’s going to be a very serious situation,” Coburn said on Capital Download. “You’re going to see — hopefully not — but you could see instances of anarchy. … You could see violence.”

Coburn went on to note that the country needed to be pulled together and not divided further, yet Obama has chosen to coincide his immigration announcement with the culmination of the most divisive domestic issue of the year, and one that already caused weeks of unrest this past summer.

Could the administration not have waited at least a few days to announce the amnesty plan, allowing any potential violence in reaction to the Wilson verdict to subside? Or is Obama deliberately trying to foster division in order to polarize the country as his only means of creating some form of momentum behind the immigration push?

Polls show that America is more deeply divided under Obama than at any time in the past two decades.

Meanwhile, supporters of Officer Darren Wilson have accused Obama of failing to stop the Michael Brown shooting from turning into a race war by offering condolences to Brown’s family while ignoring the plight of Wilson.

Unlike other cases of police brutality, the preponderance of evidence clearly indicates that Wilson did not deliberately gun down Brown in cold blood while the victim had his hands up in the air. Autopsy results and ballistics evidence suggests that Brown attacked Wilson and attempted to grab his gun before the shooting.

The Truth About the Michael Brown Shooting

Who are the real racists?

Paul Joseph Watson

The evidence clearly shows that Officer Darren Wilson was justified in shooting Michael Brown, so why is this case being hyped by the mainstream media and the leftist political establishment?

NYC Woman on Ebola Watchlist Dies Bleeding From Mouth, Authorities Say “Heart Attack”

Are suspected Ebola cases being covered up?

Paul Joseph Watson

A woman who returned from Guinea 18 days ago and was on an Ebola monitoring list dropped dead in a Brooklyn hair salon yesterday after eyewitnesses said she began bleeding from the mouth and nose, but authorities later asserted the cause of death was an “apparent heart attack.”

“FDNY activated the Special Operations and Hazmat units after the the woman, who had traveled to Guinea three weeks ago according to a source on the scene, died at Amy Professional African Hair Braiding in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn,” reports the Daily Mail.

Despite eyewitnesses reporting that there was blood coming from the woman’s “face, nose and mouth,” health authorities claimed “she had not displayed any Ebola symptoms” and had in fact died of a heart attack. The woman, who was in her 40′s, is being tested for Ebola, the results of which will be announced later today.

The salon was later decontaminated by the Hazmat crew but was not evacuated after the woman dropped dead and people were allowed to walk in and out of the establishment unprotected. Members of the Hazmat crew said they were dealing with a “fever travel illness” but subsequently claimed that no fluids had left the woman’s body.

New York City had its first and (officially at least) only case of Ebola after Dr. Craig Spencer contracted the virus as a result of treating Ebola victims in Guinea. Spencer went on to make a full recovery after intensive treatment at the Bellevue Hospital.

Suspicions as to whether Ebola cases are being covered up by health authorities continue to linger after it was revealed earlier this month that mainstream media outlets have agreed to a government demand not to report on suspected Ebola cases in the United States.

Last month it was reported that 911 dispatchers in New York City had been forbidden from using the word “Ebola” over the radio and should instead refer to possible cases as “F/T,” as in Fever/Travel.

In an interview on the Alex Jones Show last month, Doctor James Lawrenzi revealed that health authorities are covering up potential Ebola cases in the United States and disappearing patients in an effort to avoid hysteria.

Medical professionals have predicted that the U.S. could see over one hundred Ebola cases by the end of the year, while others warn that Ebola victims may be confused with influenza sufferers given the similarity of early symptoms.

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.

The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
