Military Plans to Squash Civil Unrest in the USA

If civil unrest and London-like riots happened in the USA, what would happen here to suppress the insurrection? CONPLAN 3502 deals with the DoD and U.S. military's plans for the "use of deadly force, detention and interrogation of U.S. Civilians." This is a look at some of what might happen under martial law and a U.S. government police force under CONPLAN 3502.

By Ms. Smith on Wed, 08/17/11 - 11:10am.

We know the U.S. government monitors social networks for Intelligence, but would that monitoring of technology turn out the same way as it did for the UK if civil unrest and London-like riots happened in the states? Among other things, the UK arrested a 20-year-old man "for allegedly organizing a giant water gun fight via the Blackberry Messenger service and Facebook," and now has sentenced two men to four years for "inciting riots on Facebook". After White House correspondent Marc Ambinder tweeted, "If what happened in London ever happened in the US, the military has plans -- CONPLAN 3501 and 3502 -- to suppress the insurrection'," The Atlantic reported on CONPLAN (which stands for an "operation plan in concept format" at the Pentagon) and the subject of martial law in the U.S.

Public Intelligence picked up the ball and ran with it, posting more about the U.S. military's plans for the "use of deadly force, detention and interrogation of U.S. Civilians." CONPLAN 3502 deals with military support operations conducted with local law enforcement during times of civil disturbance. It's classified "Secret" information, so piecing it together from various documents is like a mind-bending puzzle. Previously, these plans were called the Garden Plot and there have been at least four separate versions of the plan. Garden Plot "domestic" civil disturbances that are "likely to require the use of Federal Armed Forces," according to Global Security information, "are riots, acts of violence, insurrections, unlawful obstructions or assemblages, or other disorders prejudicial to public law and order."

In what is now called CONPLAN 3502, the Domestic Operational Law Handbook, states, "Military forces have the authority to detain rioters, looters or other civilians committing criminal offenses. . . If civilian police are not available, CID agents or military police may conduct interrogations only if the interrogation is essential to the civil disturbance mission."

U.S. Army Field Manual 3-19.15 lists instructions for "searching and detaining individuals, conducting riot control operations, as well as creating 'temporary detention facilities'." Previously during Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory "Police State" about "secret" FEMA camps or fusion centers, Ventura stated, "That Government plan to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, and round up anyone deemed a National Security threat, it's documented; it's called Rex 84. It was cooked up under the Reagan Administration by Col. Oliver North." He adds that the Council of Governors, established by President Obama on Jan. 11, 2010, divides America into 10 sectors. In case of a national emergency, the country is quarantined into these sectors and the president can send in the military and round up dissidents. Where would these people be taken?

FEMA_map_camps.jpg

Council_of_Governors_us-regions.gif

These maps, the first is FEMA and the second is Council of Governors, may be where "detained" citizens are held.

During a civil disturbance, if the president were to authorize it, the Tactical Level Commander and Staff Toolkit [PDF] (which expires January 2012) seems to give a decent snapshot of what military force would be used if "local authorities are unable to control the situation" or unable to "protect federal property or federal governmental functions." That lack of "control" may be what would trigger CONPLAN 3502, when martial law and the military would take over to police We the People.

The image above came from the Liaison Officer Toolkit [PDF] which describes how civil disturbances and riots should be handled. The mere fact that it would need to be emphasized that we are not the enemy is unsettling. If the U.S. military is called in to deal with a civil disturbance, the DoD Defense Support to Civil Authorities Handbook lists the "standing rules" for the use of force.

Military Plans to Squash Civil Unrest in the USA

rules-5.gif

Back to the question of what monitoring of technology would be used during civil unrest. Based upon a slightly different emergency, but one that would have the military policing the civilian population, in US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) Concept of Operations Plan (CON PLAN) 3591-09, Response to Pandemic Influenza, 13 August 2009 [81 MB PDF], it appears as if the DoD would certainly take advantage of satellite imagery during civil unrest. However there are lots of totally redacted, blacked out, areas over defense imagery and imagery dissemination, over Intelligence actions, and even over some areas of dealing with or controlling the media during such times of crisis.

Although I poured over a ton of documents, I saw no direct reference to "insurrection" and Intelligence monitoring social networks and then arresting or prosecuting citizens based upon a tweet or a Facebook post. It's very complex and very unpleasant, but what I did find seems like U.S. brother/sister citizen against military brother/sister, bad karma. I encourage you to scour Public Intelligence to help piece together what would happen in the United States if London-like riots or civil disturbances, even a "pandemic" were to occur.

Investor Profit from the Inflation Deflation Reality 2013

Jan 04, 2013 - 12:56 PM GMT

By: DeepCaster_LLC

“There is no practical way that QE can cease here or in Euroland without a total and final collapse of the financial system.”

8]
“The Federal Reserve Really Has No Practical Option To End QE”

8]
Jim Sinclair, jsmineset.com, 1/3/2013

The five year chart of the CRB Index (a Broad Measure of Commodities Prices) shows three descending tops, which is suggestive of Deflation. But to conclude that Deflation is likely to be The Ruling Force in the Economy in 2013 would be a Dangerous Error.

crb_image001.png

Indeed, it is critically important for Investors to understand whether or not we are in an Inflation or Deflation, or both (we later explain how this is possible). Failure to understand The Reality about Deflation and Inflation is likely lead to poor or even lethal Investment decisions.

Here we explain The Inflation/Deflation Reality and indicate how to Profit.

Indeed, Contrary Anecdotal Evidence from Increasing Food and Energy prices which many of us have encountered in recent years suggests we are in a serious Inflation.

But how do we reconcile that fact with the CRB chart above which shows a series of lower lows in recent months and the 5-year Chart of Dr. Copper, the Premier Indicator of Economic activity, which also appears to be Topping and apparently ready to “Deflate.”

crb_image002.png

But if one takes a look at the very recent CCI numbers or at Inflation since, say, 1930 (immediately pre-Depression) one gets a very Different view. They indicate ongoing Price Inflation.

The Solution to the Inflation/Deflation Conundrum is to consider whether there is Inflation or Deflation on a Sector by Sector basis. When one does this, one finds some Sectors are clearly Inflating and others Deflating, but that the overall Net Effect is Inflation (see below).

“Check out the chart of the Continuous Commodity Index or CCI and note that it has managed to put in a weekly close above the 38.2% Fibonacci Retracement Level of the move lower from its all time recent high made last year. If the market pysche remains the same, look for this index to now make an eventual run back towards the 597-600 level.

We can look at these charts as subjects of interest to us as traders/investors but what this particular stock represents is increasing pain for consumers and the hard-pressed middle class in one of the worst, if not the worst "recovery" since the Great Depression.

Think of this as increased frustration at the grocery store, at the gas pump, at the hardware store, at the local restaurant, etc. While some of this rally is the result of the drought and I will of course not lay that at the feet of the Fed, it is a simple fact that the breakout on this chart today, is the DIRECT RESULT of Mr. Bernanke's insistence on implying that another round of bond buying is on the way.

When you pull into the gas station and fill up your car or truck, and are sent reeling at the cost, you can lay some of the blame right at his feet and the feet of his elitists on the FOMC who insist on pacifying Wall Street instead of having concerns how their policies are destroying Main Street.”

8]
“More Pain for the Middle Class courtesy of Bernanke”

Dan Norcini, traderdannorcini.com, 8/31/2012

It is not just the skyrocketing prices we pay for Food and Energy as reflected in the CCI, that demonstrate the Price-Inflationary effect of The Fed’s (and ECB’s) ongoing Monetary Inflation. But it is the prices for most of what we buy that have skyrocketed as a result of The Fed’s decades-long Monetary Inflation. Consider the following chart comparing the 1930’s cost in the U.S. for common goods and services, with today’s costs in Purchasing-Power-Degraded Dollars.

inflation-4-1.gif

Insiders Strategic Review, 8/26/2012

And, regarding Inflation Prospects, perhaps most significant of all is the recent statement by the CEO of Cargill, the Giant Grain Trader.

“…Greg Page, chief executive of global grains trading giant Cargill Inc, joined a chorus of critics of biofuels by urging the U.S. government to temporarily curb its quotas to produce corn-based ethanol fuel.

Page said on CNBC that the U.S. biofuel mandate ‘needs to be addressed’ through existing policy tools. Otherwise, the spike in U.S. corn and soybean prices to record highs will ‘ration’ demand in ways that will hurt food production too much.

“If all that is only on livestock or food consumers, it really makes the burden disproportionate. What we see are 3 or 4 percent declines in supply lead to 40 to 50 percent increases in prices, and I think the mandates are what drives that,” he said.

In 2011, almost 40 percent of the giant U.S. corn crop went into making ethanol, and the United States still exported more than half of all corn shipments worldwide….

On Monday, U.S. livestock groups appealed to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to curb or suspend the mandate, warning against the ruinous impact of soaring feed costs. Corn and soybean meal make up basic animal feedstuffs….”

“Drought deepens worries about food supplies, prices” ,

8]
Bob Burgdorfer, reutersreprints.com , 8/1/2012

Clearly, the Food Sector has been, is and will likely continue to exhibit increasing Inflation. So The Answer to the General Question: Which is it, Inflation or Deflation? is “That Depends on the Sector”.

Most important, however, is the net, which, weighing Inflating Sectors against Deflating Sectors, is Inflationary.

Indeed, John Williams’ (shadowstats.com) Real Numbers (as opposed to the Bogus Official Statistics) confirm the foregoing (net) ongoing Inflation.

Bogus Official Numbers vs. Real Numbers (per Shadowstats.com)

Annual U.S. Consumer Price Inflation reported December 14, 2012

1.76%

9.41%

U.S. Unemployment reported December 7, 2012

7.7%

22.9%

U.S. GDP Annual Growth/Decline reported December 20, 2012

2.60%

-2.10%

U.S. M3 reported December 19, 2012 (Month of November, Y.O.Y.)

No Official Report

3.59%

The Reality is we are entering into a period of rapidly increasing prices in many Sectors, but in a contracting Economy with a NEGATIVE GDP of 2.10%. That is, we are in Stagflation, and if Williams is correct, and in our view he is, soon to move into a Hyperstagflation.

It is most important to emphasize the Net Effect of Inflation in some Sectors and Deflation in others is that we are already Threshold Hyperinflationary overall at 9.41%.

Thus proper Sector by Sector Evaluation and Selection is Critical when Investing in 2013 and beyond.

Indeed, The Key for Investors is to play the Inflation Sectors to Inflate and the Deflating Sector to Deflate, and, generally, to Invest for Inflation overall.

It is also important to see that much that is claimed about Deflation is a myth.

Certainly consumer debt is not decreasing overall, as we demonstrated in an earlier Article.

And the debt of most (already overindebted) Sovereigns is still increasing, except for that of Greece. And the ECB’s and Fed’s recently announced, de facto, QE to Infinity programs (with Japan likely to follow soon) are not deflationary, but rather quite inflationary and they will surely continue (see below). The increase in the Money Supply morphs into Price Increases as we are already seeing in Food and Energy and are likely to see in other Sectors in the coming months.

Of course, The Fed claims they adopted QE to Infinity to get unemployment down to 6.5%. In fact, QE does not create jobs, as Graham Summers points out but rather, as he notes The Fed’s Action was intended to address the following:

  1. The US economy is nose-diving again and the Fed is acting preemptively.
  2. The Fed is trying to provide increased liquidity going into the fiscal cliff.
  3. The Fed is funding the US’s Government massive deficits.

“The Real Reasons the Fed Announced QE 4”

Graham Summers, Phoenix Capital Research, 12/23/2012

Summers points out that the motivation regarding #1 is that the Economy is contracting again as the November ISM report shows. And the Big Banks are still not lending to Small Businesses which account for over 70% of jobs in the USA.

Importantly, what Summers implies, but does not expressly state, is The Fed’s (and ECB’s) Main Motivation, that QE is aimed mainly at maintaining the Profits of the Mega-Banks, several of which are shareholders of the private for-profit Fed.

In light of the foregoing, and especially The Fed’s and ECB’s and (probably) the BOJ’s QE to Infinity, the Mega-Trend is that we will likely see periods of intensifying Asset Price Inflation, in 2013 and beyond. But this Price Inflation will not necessarily reflect Value Inflation, because Price will be reflected in value-degraded (i.e. Purchasing Power Degraded) Fiat Currencies. Regarding Specific Recommendations aimed at Profiting and Protecting from Intensifying Inflation see Notes 1, 2, and 3 below.

In this respect (but not others), Evans-Pritchard’s analysis of Major Sovereigns and Central Banks’ Actions is correct.

“[They] …are actively driving down their currencies or imposing caps.

…embracing the new creed of nominal GDP targeting…

The side-effects of this currency warfare -- or "beggar-thy-neighbour’ policy as it was known in the 1930s -- is an escalating leakage of monetary stimulus into the global system.

So don’t fight the Fed, and never fight the world’s central banks on multiple fronts.

…so let me hazzard that the S&P 500 index of stocks will break through its all time high of 1565 in early 2013 -- mindful though I am of flagging volume and a wicked 12-year triple top.

The Shanghai Composite will continue its explosive rally as China loosens the spigot again. The Politburo is reverting to its bad old ways of easy credit for state behemoths, and an infrastructure blitz, with $60bn of fiscal stimulus as well for good measure. Reform can wait.

Yes, we all know that China has added $14 trillion in extra credit since 2009…

The more that investors come to think another cycle of global growth is safely under way, the riskier it will be to hold corporate bonds, $8 trillion in the US alone. With yields priced for deflation, that bubble is dangerous to own on 10-year maturities. The money will rotate into equities and bullion, with China’s central bank driving gold through $2,000 at last.

As a polar bear, I doubt that such a happy cycle is upon us. We merely have a rally within a structural trade depression.

The headwinds of deleveraging will return with gale force. The glut of excess global savings that lay behind the great crisis of 2008-2009 -- and that has kept us stuck in the Long Slump ever since -- is still getting worse. The international trading system remains badly out of kilter.

There is chronic overcapacity across global industry and not enough demand to carry a full cycle of economic expansion, or to reach "escape velocity" as they say these days.

Until that changes, every global rebound is doomed to disappoint within a few quarters, and that includes the cyclical upswing of 2013.

Japan’s new premier Shenzo Abe is sweeping into office like Roosevelt in 1933, commanding the central bank to do whatever it takes to defeat deflation, deliver 3pc NGDP growth, and drive the dollar-yen rate to 90.

The Fed is no slouch either. It is printing $1 trillion in 2013, even though the money supply is already catching fire. It is has cooked up a jobless target of 6.5pc, meaning anything it wants. If this caps the dollar in the process -- and safeguards America’s shale-driven manufacturing revival…

And the poll that matters most is the rising support for the Front National’s Marine Le Pen, champion of the French franc, already pulling even with Gaulliste rivals.

The anomaly is why the Left -- in Spain, and across Europe -- continues to back a reactionary EMU agenda that sets policy in the interest of creditors and drives youth unemployment rise to 55pc. La trahison des clercs.”

“Stocks to soar as world money catches fire, Valvinst Europe left behind”

8]
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, The Telegraph, 1/1/2013

Yes, the Eurozone is already suffering from Stagnation and incipient Inflation.

And with the U.S. recently increasing Taxes but not cutting Spending, the U.S. is headed in that direction as well.

Agora Financial Guru Bill Bonner sums up the effect of “the Cliff” Resolution well:

“Neither the debt ceiling nor serious long-term spending cuts were addressed.

…the problems in 2013 are the same as those in 2012. Nothing has been done to solve them.”

8]
“New Year; Old Problems”

8]
Bill Bonner, 1/2/2013

The Key Takeaway from all the foregoing is that it is essential to identify which Sectors are Inflating and which Deflating and to realize that the net effect is Inflationary.

And, make no mistake, the Fed, ECB, BOJ, and others will continue QE for the foreseeable future. Consider Jim Sinclair’s sound reasoning in response to some Fed Governors opinions they may stop QE in 2013.

“The implication of stopping QE is so dire to the economy that it is in a practical sense impossible. When gold was being sold by central banks during the 1970s market announcements were made constantly with the bias to depress metals.

There is no practical way that QE can cease here or in Euroland without a total and final collapse of the financial system. Just go back to the IMF report on OTC derivatives I posted this morning. If QE ceases, the US bond market collapses and the Fed must debt monetize all required debt, which means if QE stops, it starts up again immediately and in a crisis mode.

The statement that QE can stop is simply MOPE. QE cannot stop or the world ends as you know it.”

8]
Sinclair, ibid

Indeed Jeff Clark (Agora Short Report) correctly characterizes these Fed Governors comments, “That’s Funny.” Yes, “Funny” as in ludicrous.

Analysis Behind and Beyond Government Economic Reporting

CV site author

Walter J. "John" Williams was born in 1949. He received an A.B. in Economics, cum laude, from Dartmouth College in 1971, and was awarded a M.B.A. from Dartmouth's Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in 1972, where he was named an Edward Tuck Scholar. During his career as a consulting economist, John has worked with individuals as well as Fortune 500 companies.

Although I am known formally as Walter J. Williams, my friends call me “John.” For 30 years, I have been a private consulting economist and, out of necessity, had to become a specialist in government economic reporting.

One of my early clients was a large manufacturer of commercial airplanes, who had developed an econometric model for predicting revenue passenger miles. The level of revenue passenger miles was their primary sales forecasting tool, and the model was heavily dependent on the GNP (now GDP) as reported by the Department of Commerce. Suddenly, their model stopped working, and they asked me if I could fix it. I realized the GNP numbers were faulty, corrected them for my client (official reporting was similarly revised a couple of years later) and the model worked again, at least for a while, until GNP methodological changes eventually made the underlying data worthless.

That began a lengthy process of exploring the history and nature of economic reporting and in interviewing key people involved in the process from the early days of government reporting through the present. For a number of years I conducted surveys among business economists as to the quality of government statistics (the vast majority thought it was pretty bad), and my results led to front page stories in 1989 in the New York Times and Investors Daily (now Investors Business Daily), considerable coverage in the broadcast media and a joint meeting with representatives of all the government's statistical agencies.

Nonetheless, the quality of government reporting has deteriorated sharply in the last couple of decades. Reporting problems have included methodological changes to economic reporting that have pushed headline economic and inflation results out of the realm of real-world or common experience.

Over the decades, well in excess of 1,000 presentations have been given on the economic outlook, or on approaches to analyzing economic data, to clients—large and small—including talks with members of the business, banking, government, press, academic, brokerage and investment communities. I also have provided testimony before Congress (details here).

An old friend—the late-Doug Gillespie—asked me some years back to write a series of articles on the quality of government statistics. The response to those writings (the Primer Series available at the top-center of this page) was so strong that we started ShadowStats.com (Shadow Government Statistics) in 2004. The newsletter is published as part of my economic consulting services. — John Williams

Morewell than Orwell: Paramilitarization in the United States post-9/11

By Matthew Witt, Ph.D.

Adopting the concept of “legitimation crisis” as formulated by Jürgen Habermas

(1975), this paper examines how the Occupy Wall Street movement of 2011-2012—

short lived in popular media, but still alive—has challenged the core logic of the

American administrative state and, by extension, signals increasingly prevalent and

tectonic challenges to the organization and management of late capitalism in a post-

9/11 world. This paper will examine, in particular, the extensive coordination of police

reaction to key Occupy protest events, and how this reaction—militarized police

response tactics—was in place as early as 1999 to quash any popular resistance keyed

to the Iraq War or world trade policies favored by U.S. trade officials. The militarization

of police is now indicative of an emerging ethos of systemic disturbances (analogous to

the Solidarity Movement in Poland and similar resistances elsewhere among Soviet

satellite states) with the potential to cascade rapidly into escalating and reciprocal state

legitimation crises.

demonstrations not = equal = to unrest

I'm not really sure what your point was, other than quoting a single tweet there was no mention of the “frozen zone” rumor, and that's all it seems to have been. There are only three Google News results for “frozen zone” Flatbush one each from the “Examiner”, “PolicyMic” and In These Times. The 1st two are essentially open source, the former cited the website “Before Its News”, the latter cited no sources and the author seems to be based in the Midwest. ITT is a well respected source but it only reported that “Since 1.30am [Thursday], witnesses on Twitter have reported that the whole of East Flatbush is becoming a so-called Frozen Zone: an unofficial NYPD tactic of totally excluding the media from an area.”

But a CNN reporter filmed in front of the impromteu memorial for the slain teen at 2:02 PM Thursday

This RT report seems to have been filmed Thursday as well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTWTjhsjhMM

And WABC filmed from there Thursday night and Friday morning

http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local/new_york&id=9023785

WNBC was also there Friday
