Stimulus Billions for the Police State
February 3, 2009
As the false right-left politicos slug it out over the content of Obama’s so-called stimulus bill, a little known provision has been inserted in the massive spending bill. Fox News takes “liberal Democrat” David Obey to task for loading up the bill with perks for union workers and the environment, and yet does not mention the fact the misnamed economic stimulus package also includes billions to put finishing touches on the police state apparatus the globalists will need when European-style riots finally reach the United States.

“President Barack Obama wants the government back in the policing business, big time,” reports the Associated Press. “Obama’s huge stimulus plan includes about $4 billion to resurrect grants that put tens of thousands of police on the streets during the 1990s. The programs were all but eliminated during the Bush administration amid criticism that their results didn’t justify the hefty price tags.”
In order to slip these resurrected grants under the wire and avoid having to defend the spending during the normal budget process, the Obama administration — rife with one-world globalists, CFR and Trilat members — have tacked the expenditure onto the stimulus plan, sold to a largely clueless public as a way to resurrect the economy.
A large component of this boondoggle is known as the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, a scandal-ridden initiative notoriously linked to the police state round-up on trumped up drug charges of 16 percent of the African American residents of Tulia, Texas. “A 2002 report by the ACLU of Texas identified seventeen scandals involving Byrne-funded anti-drug task forces in Texas, including cases of falsifying government records, witness tampering, fabricating evidence, false imprisonment, stealing drugs from evidence lockers, selling drugs to children, large-scale racial profiling, sexual harassment, and other abuses of official capacity,” notes the Drug Policy Alliance Network.
The American Conservative Union, Americans for Tax Reform, Citizens against Government Waste, and National Taxpayers Union sent a sign-on letter urging Congress to completely eliminate the Byrne grant program because the program “has proved to be an ineffective and inefficient use of resources.”
In addition, $1 billion in stimulus money will be set aside for the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program begun under Clinton. The federal funds, initially granted in December 1993, were to be used to place 100,000 additional officers on the streets by October, 2000. In fact, only 40,000 additional officers were on the street by 1998. “Since the inception of the program, local law enforcement agencies have used billions of these dollars for officer salaries, computer technology, and clerical support,” writes David B. Muhlhausen for the Center for Data Analysis at the Heritage Foundation.
In 2001, several proposals were floated to significantly expand the program, based largely on the misleading claim that COPS helped to lower crime rates. Then senator Joe Biden said that the COPS program was “the most successful crime fighting strategy this nation has ever seen,” a claim not supported by empirical research. Heritage analysts found that federal support of the operational expenses of police departments was ineffective in reducing violent crime.
In fact, COPS, the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, and other such programs have nothing to do with reducing crime but rather serve to remove control from local law enforcement. In addition, federalization of local law enforcement has led to the militarization of police departments. “The US military is increasingly involved in domestic law enforcement. The Posse Comitatus Act was amended in 1981 to allow some military involvement in law enforcement. A 1991 amendment provided for military training of the police in drug-law enforcement. In 1996, Joint Task Force 6, under the control of the Department of Defense, was expanded to cover the entire USA,” Fred E. Foldvary wrote for The Progress Report in 1999.

As Alex Jones documented in the late 1990s, U.S. troops have consistently trained to replace local law enforcement in the case of a “national emergency,” including natural disasters formerly the responsibility of state-based National Guard. “The contention that … troops will merely help ‘recovery efforts’ after a major catastrophe is contradicted by the fact that Northcom itself, in a September 8 Army Times article, said the first wave of [a deployment of 20,000 uniformed troops], which was put in place on October 1st at Fort Stewart and at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, would be aimed at tackling ‘civil unrest and crowd control,’” Paul Joseph Watson wrote for Prison Planet on December 1, 2008.
“The increasing militarization of America is part of a long term agenda to abolish Constitutional rule and establish a ‘military form of government,’ following a large scale terror attack or similar disaster, as Tommy Franks, the former commander of the military’s Central Command, alluded to in a November 2003 Cigar Aficionado piece,” Watson continues.
Under the reign of George Bush, the excuse to federalize and militarize local law enforcement focused on the dreaded “other,” as William Norman Grigg notes, in particular Muslims and remotely located Islamic terrorists manufactured by intelligence agencies. “Now, in the name of bipartisanship and national unity under the rule of the Sainted One, even His Holiness Barack Obama, we’re likely to see a synthesis of the worst elements from both the Bush and Clinton eras.”
As Attorney General, Eric Holder, an unabashed proponent of civilian disarmament and the prosecution of “hate crimes,” we can expect to see the ATF will let off its leash and a cascade of federal initiatives targeting “hate groups.”
Under [Homeland Security] Commissarina [Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano], the Homeland Security Department will continue to militarize and federalize law enforcement, cultivating ties with Joe Arpaio [of the Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff's Office] wannabes nation-wide and turning them into squalid little satellite despotisms in the service of Washington.
Prior to his anointment, during a speech in Colorado Springs Obama announced the globalist plan to create a massive paramilitary force, billed as a “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military, according to Obama.
“Senator Obama aims to tap into the already active volunteerism of millions of Americans and recruit them to become cogs in a gigantic government machine grinding out his social re-engineering agenda,” writes Lee Cary for the American Thinker.
This “gigantic government machine,” however, has nothing to do with Obama’s supposed socialist ideas, but rather those of his globalist handlers. It is not socialism in a classical sense of bottom-up proletariat political activism, but rather the “socialism” of scientific control levied by a small coterie of elitist international bankers who endeavor to turn the planet into a sprawling slave labor, debt-based gulag and eugenicist nightmare.
In order to realize their draconian plan, the ruling elite must collapse the global economy, a process already well underway. In France, Russia, Madagascar, Iceland, Greece, Britain and elsewhere (see Crisis heightens danger of global social unrest), riots and spreading political discontent are emerging in response to this engineered global economic collapse.
“In New Bedford, Mass., a port city of about 92,000, Police Chief Ronald Teachman said a new round of [Byrne Justice Assistance Grant and Community Oriented Policing Services program] grants would put police on the streets at a time when experts expect crime to rise with the unemployment rate,” the Associated Press reports. “With the mayor warning of city layoffs, Teachman said grants would keep him from having to move detectives and school resource officers into patrol cars to fill shifts… And it would mean jobs, he said, which is why the stimulus was written.”
In fact, the so-called stimulus bill was designed to add to an already astronomical debt and further facilitate the economic destruction of the United States. It is a cruel irony that our rulers have slipped funding for their ever-expanding police state apparatus into a bill advertised as a palliative.
“The House passed the stimulus bill, but the version that makes it out of the Senate is expected to be different,” the Associated Press concludes. “But because Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General-nominee Eric Holder strongly support the grants — and Democrats control Congress — the programs will likely be resurrected even if they don’t make it into the final stimulus bill.”
Indeed, if the proposal is jettisoned in the name of political expediency, we can expect the globalists to resurrect it elsewhere, especially as the streets begin to fill with angry and potentially violent unemployed and hungry workers.
