Tea Party Marine Investigated for Disloyalty to Obama Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com March 5, 2012 The Armed Forces Tea Party reports that Camp Pendleton Marine Gary Stein is being officially investigated for making disloyal comments about Obama. “The comments in question were made by his personal Facebook profile during a discussion about ‘NATO allowing the trial of US Troops for burning the Koran’ on a Facebook Group and since been deleted,” a post today explains. Stein created the Armed Forces Tea Party Facebook page in April of 2010 as a way to make public his opposition to Obamacare. In response to superior officers asking Stein to review Department of Defense directives on political activities, the Marine removed the page. It was revived hours later by a civilian member of a local Tea Party group. “I’m speaking as Gary Stein, not as Sgt. Gary Stein,” he told FoxNews.com. “I just want to give my daughter the greatest country that we can, just like my parents gave me. I want her to inherit the America I know we can be.” The Armed Forces Tea Party Facebook page explains that Stein is being charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Article 134, which “authorizes the prosecution of offenses not specifically detailed by any other article: all disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces, all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, and crimes and offenses not capital, of which persons subject to this chapter may be guilty,” according to Wikipedia. The military has taken a hard line on political activity by soldiers in recent months. In January, Army reservist Cpl. Jesse Thorsen took the stage at a political event in Iowa and expressed his support for presidential candidate Ron Paul. “His foreign policy is by far, hands down better than any other candidate’s out there,” Thorsen told Paul’s supporters. Army Reserve spokeswoman Maj. Angel Wallace told the Associated Press participating in a partisan political event in uniform is a violation of Defense Department rules and the military is reviewing whether Thorsen could face legal ramifications. In February, Paul’s campaign said they received more donations from active-duty military than all of the other presidential candidates combined, including Barack Obama.
Japan invents speech-jamming gun that silences people mid-sentence Foxnews.com March 5, 2012 TOKYO â€“ Japanese researchers have invented a speech-jamming gadget that painlessly forces people into silence. Kazutaka Kurihara of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and Koji Tsukada of Ochanomizu University, developed a portable "SpeechJammer" gun that can silence people more than 30 meters away. The device works by recording its target's speech then firing their words back at them with a 0.2second delay, which affects the brain's cognitive processes and causes speakers to stutter before silencing them completely. Describing the device in a research paper published Feb. 28 at arXiv.org, Kurihara and Tsukada wrote, "In general, human speech is jammed by giving back to the speakers their own utterances at a delay of a few hundred milliseconds. This effect can disturb people without any physical discomfort, and disappears immediately by stopping speaking." They found that the device works better on people who were reading aloud than engaged in "spontaneous speech" and it cannot stop people making meaningless sounds, such as "ahhh," that are uttered over a long time period. Kurihara and Tsukada suggested the speech-jamming gun could be used to hush noisy speakers in public libraries or to silence people in group discussions who interrupt other people's speeches. "There are still many cases in which the negative aspects of speech become a barrier to the peaceful resolution of conflicts," the authors said.
Troops Used For Crowd Control At Texas Kite Festival Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com Monday, March 5, 2012 Footage shows Guard soldiers loading children onto school buses Uniformed troops from the Texas State Guard were used for the purposes of crowd control during the Zilker Kite Festival in Austin this past weekend, with video showing the troops ordering parents and children to board school buses at the end of the event. Disturbing footage of the troops controlling the movement of attendees was filmed by Infowars reporters, in addition to a police helicopter circling above. However, the website of the Zilker Kite Festival attempted to downplay the Guard’s involvement as if it was completely normal. Under the headline What are Soldiers doing at the Kite Festival!?, the website states that the troops were there to “help to manage the crowds during bus loading and unloading, at parking lots, and around the event.” According to the Texas State Guard’s website, “The Texas State Guard (TXSG) mission as a branch of the Texas Military Forces is to provide mission-ready military forces to assist State and local authorities in times of state emergencies, with homeland security and community service through Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA).” No information concerning the TXSG being present at the Kite Festival appears on the website. The use of the military to oversee domestic roles normally ascribed to police officers is a sign of America’s deepening decline into a state of de facto martial law. In 2008 it was announced that U.S. troops returning from duty in Iraq would be carrying out homeland patrols in America for the purposes of helping with “civil unrest and crowd control”. In recent years, budget cuts have also contributed to the increasing use of military assets to conduct routine law enforcement actions. Military police were used to detain people at the Kentucky Derby horse race in 2009. In April of the same year, 400 Massachusetts National Guardsmen from the 126th Combat Support
Battalion were deployed at the Boston Marathon to “maintain order”. We have documented innumerable examples of Posse Comitatus being violated with uniformed troops increasingly being used to conduct routine traffic stops and provide security at public events across the nation. The process of loading children onto buses for the purposes of forced relocation is also a scenario that has cropped up time and time again during exercises focused around responding to terror attacks and national emergencies. During the Operation Mountain Guardian terrorism exercise undertaken in Denver last year, Colorado authorities issued a news advisory that detailed how children would be “processed” in the event of a terror attack by being taken to Denver’s Mile High Stadium. Infowars reporters Aaron Dykes and Darrin McBreen, who were covering the drill, confirmed that buses marked “special” were used for that purpose. As part of the same drill, a SWAT team raided a Denver school, terrorizing children as young as first grade with a traumatic and frighteningly realistic school shooter scenario. Federal exercises have specifically targeted children on a number of occasions, most infamously in Muskegon, Michigan. In 2004, a Michigan county concocted a scenario in which public school children were threatened by a fictitious radical group that believed everyone should be homeschooled, WorldNetDaily reported. The exercise was funded by homeland security grants to area school districts and Muskegon county. A 2003 Washington Post article revealed how school administrators in the Washington area had told parents they would be “prevented, or strongly discouraged, from picking up their children” in the event of a terrorist attack. Under the plan, schools would be locked down and parents would not be able to retrieve their children.
