There is an old latin saying “O praeclarum custodem ovium lupum” that means “The great protector of sheep is the wolf.” Now I know it sounds a bit pretentious to use latin, but in all honesty, I learned about this saying from watching the movie Avatar, where the security forces in the film had this emblazoned on their patches. It is actually a quote from Cicero.

It’s an ironical statement which means that many times, as in politics, the people who are supposed to save us are the people who actually destroy us.

If you dig beyond the protest arguments over race and race war, you may have noticed that there are some people who are now questioning why we are paying out so much tax payer money for a police force that seems to be out of control.

The death of George Floyd and the egregious, unprovoked acts of police violence at the peaceful protests following his death have raised these urgent questions.

Much to the chagrin of those who claim that police brutality against white people is not being recognized the recent video of an elderly white man being pushed down during protests in Buffalo has also caused outrage and has now created a discussion about defunding the police.

The cry has gone up for police forces in America to change their internal cultures, training and hiring practices, insurance, and governing regulations. Yesterday I started hearing about how many states have decided not to renew their contracts with police agencies that have been protecting the schools.

The excuse is that if cops cannot stop killing people, and black people in particular, society needs fewer of them.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he intended to cut $100 million to $150 million from the LAPD’s budget and reinvest those dollars plus another $100 million from other departments into the black community.

The Minneapolis school board has voted to end its contract with the Minneapolis Police.

Minneapolis Public Schools will stop further negotiations with the Police Department. Schools Superintendent Ed Graff must come up with a new plan for school safety by the board’s Aug. 18 meeting.

School board chairwoman Kim Ellison said in an interview that she values “people and education and life.” Ellison said she’s now convinced, “based on the actions of the Minneapolis Police Department, that we don’t have the same values.”
The Minneapolis and St. Paul school districts have faced criticism over the use of school resource officers. 

Others have said that perhaps police forces should be disbanded all together and replaced by officers contracted out by a private company. There are also those who think that private security watchmen would suffice in America and that a replacement should be sought where the people are customers that rely on an organized corporate.

In 2014, Camden, New Jersey, disbanded its entire police force as rising crime and a lack of funds led the city to transfer law enforcement duties to the county. Officials in Camden said that generous union contracts and declining aid from the state made it financially impossible to keep enough officers on the street. Similarly, in 2011, Millbrae, California, dissolved its police force and contracted with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department in an effort to save $1.1 million per year, and two other cities in that county, San Carlos and Half Moon Bay, have also dissolved their forces to contract with the sheriff’s department.

Many communities have already begun to contract with private security to supplement local law enforcement. Private sector companies are cheaper and focused more on customer service. In Oakland, California, several neighborhoods have hired private security to patrol their neighborhoods in response to rising crime rates and reductions in police staffing. More than 600 Oakland households pay $20 a month for unarmed patrols in clearly marked cars to run 12 hours a day, Monday through Saturday.

In Beverly Hills, California, Evidence Based Inc., a private security firm, was approved to provide armed safety personnel to protect Beverly Hills Public Schools in January 2014 at a cost of $1.4 million for 18 months of service. The Beverly Hills Police Department had provided School Resource Officers to the city’s schools in the past, but the department had ended the program a few years prior due to staffing shortages that necessitated the reassignment of the school officers to patrol beats.

In a democratic society, law enforcement officers prevent social disorder, protect the public, and reduce crime while respecting the inherent freedoms of those they serve. Sworn personnel, police administrators, and legislators strive to keep this delicate balance so officers do not appear like an occupying force.

However, agencies also must have the capability to address the criminal element of society. Over the years, lawless individuals and groups have used weapons that continue to become more lethal. In response, officers have needed more advanced training and equipment. This has led to police departments sometimes having a military-like appearance.

The United States has certainly beefed up its budgets to militarize police forces. They also have an extreme budget commitment to prisons, guns, warplanes, armored vehicles, detention facilities, courts, jails, drones, and patrols.

Law enforcement agencies and the general public face the question of how far the militarization of a police force can go and how often such resources should deploy before impacting individual freedoms. While they desire safety and security, citizens want as much freedom as possible. As a result, some people think that departments need to be reformed and the use of tactical teams limited.

It has been said time and time again that these militarized tactical teams are intimidating in the Black community and that for some time there has been complaints about how SWAT teams have been called out for domestic disputes, often with fatal outcomes.

A lot of the recent talk to strip police of their budgets and authority can also be part of the plan that was proposed in 2015 when the United Nations unveiled their plans for a New World Order to be finalized by the year 2030.

The 2030 Summit is a well-known supplement to Agenda 21 where a many tiered plan of world unity and state socialism was proposed as a bold political move by a world body to employ a centralized world government.

The 2030 blueprint for what is called “sustainable development” included plans for law enforcement and reassignment or reset options for a world police force.

It was proposed in 2015 that United Nations personnel would be available to replace municipal police forces whose ranks have been harassed and hollowed out because of civil unrest and violent activism.

In 2015, there was a secret meeting that took place during the U.N. Summit that proposed the idea of something called the Strong Cities Network.

The project came from out of nowhere and was introduced at United Nations headquarters on September 30th, 2015 by Attorney General, Loretta Lynch.

It was proposed the Strong Cities Network can be implemented “to strengthen community resilience against violent extremism.”

However this would be with no public input, no Congress debate or vote, it would be the blue helmets and not local cops who would be policing the streets of America.

This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself.

The Department of Justice issued a press release that stated:

“Cities are vital partners in international efforts to build social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism. Local communities and authorities are the most credible and persuasive voices to challenge violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations in their local contexts. While many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.

The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration,” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. “As we continue to counter a range of domestic and global terror threats, this innovative platform will enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”

Now what most people do not know that secretly these programs were ready to go and were implemented as backup for a possible insurrection on September 29th, 2015.

According the United Nations:

The Strong Cities Network (SCN) –at the United Nations – will empower municipal bodies to fill this gap while working with civil society and safeguarding the rights of local citizens and communities.

The SCN will strengthen strategic planning and practices to address violent extremism in all its forms by fostering collaboration among cities, municipalities and other sub-national authorities.

Nowhere does the 2030 Agenda and the Strong Cities Network enforcement indicate that “achieving human freedom” is one of its goals. This is a nightmare that has been spoken of by conspiracy theorists for decades and now by some stroke of irony, the notion becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Mostly all talk and no action, the U.N. has never in its entire history strengthened community resilience against violent extremism, no matter how compelling the need and is, in fact, on the public record for standing down in many instances.

The question is will it be implemented in the United States as a replacement for current police agencies in big metropolitan cities?

As an international body ever expanding its power base, and ever failing at the international level, the U.N. has been active at the municipal level of government where it first advanced its intrusive Agenda 21, now Agenda 2030. The act of U.N. “enforcement” seems to now be the clandestine military police unit for the entire planet. The prophetic words of Henry Kissinger, which can be found in a quote taken from a Bilderberg meeting, shows the passivity of American citizens towards the ever encroaching U.N. jackboot of the new world.

At the 1991, Bilderberg Conference at Evian, France, Kissinger allegedly remarked that:

“Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow, they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all people of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the world government.”

Back in 2014, it was proposed at the Bilderberg Conference that in order to move U.N. troops into the United States, the country would have to be driven to the point of becoming a rogue state.

It seems a bit too late to revive the Constitution and Americans are too stunned to move out of the way of the steam roller called tyranny that will flatten any and all that defy. The implications of many Americans from the lowly to the high and mighty in crimes against the state will become the norm in the aftermath of what can be seen as organized rioting in the United States.

Americans are not aware that they are facing a privacy danger, a danger of being murdered by an external police authority.

Many remember the Jade Helm exercises that were held all over the United States, but many do not know that they were actually being used in order to enforce this new advanced form of policing in this country.

Jade Helm 15 exercises were not going to create the need for Martial Law, but to prepare a more proficient police force to apply Operational Analysis of “War Gaming,” nonlinear warfare and JADE holographic imaging in order to find “extremists” and to generate human terrain systems in geographic population centric locations to identify and eliminate targets, insurgents, rebels or whatever labels that can be flagged as targets in a Global Information Grid for Network Centric Warfare environments.

I am sure that the need for the monitoring of urban settings in what were called “problem areas” – was pretext for the “Strong Cities Network.”

Finally, The Strong Cities Network will include an International Steering Committee of approximately 25 cities and other sub-national entities from different regions that will provide the Strong Cities Network with its strategic direction. The Strong Cites Network will also convene an International Advisory Board, which includes representatives from relevant city-focused networks, to help ensure the Strong Cities Network builds upon their work. It will be run by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), a leading international “think-and-do” tank with a long-standing track record of working to prevent violent extremism.

Remember no Congress decisions, no input from the people, and no talk of how this will create a means for more freedom and safety.

This plan amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.

Take a look at what violent extremism looks like in other countries – and then let us talk about the expansion of a U.N. Strong Cities Network and police actions that justify deadly force in a country that says it is the “Home of the Free.”

Those who live under the gun and wish to rebel will be the new terrorists.

I also find it odd, that no one is even bringing up the idea that after the riots in the country die down and new police forces will be proposed there will be certainly a concerted effort to disarm Americans as well.

Part of the dilemma for anyone who truly wants to understand these actions and re-actions is that “nothing they do” within the circles of power and greed seems to make any logical sense.

Just before the 9/11 attacks, there were a few films released that seemed to be a form of cruel predictive programming about rounding up suspected enemies of the state. One particular film was called, The Siege. The film starred Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis and it confronted societal themes that predicted the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, groupthink, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.

It also illustrated how Americans can become indifferent to the idea of jailing people in camps and cages without due process in times of crisis or perceived crisis.

At the time the film had some basic evidence that a slippery slope was in the making as at the time there was a revelation that prison camps were being created in the real world in order to jail American citizens during a possible time of declared martial law by the president.

There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty.

These camps are all part of the REX-84 program or the Ready Exercise program that was first proposed during the Reagan administration to round up undesirables if the country fell into a civil crisis.

This would include those who are suspected terrorists, illegal immigrants or anyone the state decides needs to be rounded up.

The ugly truth is that converted detention facilities could start springing up everywhere under the current circumstances – or, it is better said, the ones that have been in reserve since the Reagan administration will have a reason to open.

The ugly truth is that converted detention facilities could start springing up everywhere under the current circumstances – or, it is better said, the ones that have been in reserve since the Reagan administration will have a reason to open.

If you do not believe that this is in the works for the future of Law enforcement consider that in the beginning of the year, long before COVID-19 or civil unrest there was a [ush for a Stasi like operation of contact tracers and United Nations officers to enforce health and services within world law.

We reported last January that the United Nations was accepting job applications in New York City, New York for Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration Officers to “Contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments.

The job listing was posted to the U.N. careers homepage on Dec. 26, and notes that “female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for this position” because “the United Nations Secretariat is committed to achieving 50/50 gender balance in its staff.”

UN DDR forces operate under the intergovernmental organization’s Department of Peace Operations to “assist” the Member States, including the United States, in a “boots on the ground” capacity.

The job listing describes the UN’s core values as “Integrity, Professionalism, [and] Respect for Diversity.”

Applicants eager to conduct DDR “field missions” are required to have “seven years of relevant experience in disarmament affairs, political analysis or in national military or paramilitary service” and an “advanced university degree (Master’s degree or equivalent degree) in disarmament affairs, military studies, political affairs, economics, international relations, or a related field.”

The UN describes the Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration protocol as “a complex process, with political, military, security, humanitarian and socio-economic dimensions.”

Key components of DDR as defined by the UN include disarming the civilian population and “the development of responsible arms management programs” and the implementation of mass detainment camps.

You see, when the enemy is not defined, when the people are not governable and when no one can communicate due to hyper-division, there is no agreed-upon enemy or even an objective.

You just find yourself at the end of a gun being told to march into battle or the death camp it is not a choice but an obligation at gunpoint.
