The Praetorian Psyop

The Pentagon announced that it will be conducting guerilla warfare training in North Carolina in the coming weeks. The point of the exercise is to train American soldiers to battle “seasoned freedom fighters”, according to the Army. They say they made the announcement so that the public would not be shocked by the sound of weapons or the sight of the soldiers conducting war games. The exercises are going to be conducted on private lands in the western part of the state

This announcement coincides with the Department of Justice announcing the formation of a specialized unit focused on domestic terrorism. According to the DOJ, “We have seen a growing threat from those who are motivated by racial animus, as well as those who ascribe to extremist anti-government and anti-authority ideologies.” What they are saying is the hysterical reaction to the January 6 protests is entirely justified as there is an invisible army out there making bombs.

Many assume this is about the ongoing shift toward treating all opposition to the regime as domestic terrorism. The color revolution they orchestrated against Trump will become a full-time revolution. Politicians will go on about the threat to our democracy while agents of the secret police drag people off for made up crimes. Liberal democracy is in its terror phase. The gross violation of rights is justified by the perpetual state of emergency over the alleged threat to the system.

There is some of that, for sure, but the FBI has been framing people as domestic terrorists for generations. They used to work with organized crime to frame people for murders committed by gangsters. That made the FBI look good and they did not have to do any real work. They orchestrated antiwar protests in the 1960’s and racial crimes in the South during the civil rights era. They framed too many people to count during the Bush years in the name of fighting Islamic terrorism.

In other words, the FBI and the rest of the intelligence agencies have never needed a reason to abuse the rights of Americans. The reason these organizations came into existence at the same time the American empire went global is every empire needs a secret police to prevent domestic enemies. Empires do not treat the core population very well, so they have to worry that the core population will get tired of sharing the wealth and revolt against their rulers.

There is another reason for these announcements. The intelligence agencies have broken free of civilian oversight. We saw this in the Trump years when they spied on his campaign and tried to frame any number of people in order to perpetuate the cover-up now known as the Russian collusion hoax. Chuck Schumer told Trump in public that he better not take on these agencies as they have a six million ways to get him. The politicians fear the intelligence community.

A big part of their power is the ability of these agencies to perpetuate fear among the people in the political class. It is why they tried to frame Congressman Matt Gaetz for sex trafficking early last year. Every member of Congress looked at what was happening and thought about their younger days. If they could ring up a sitting member of Congress for being a party boy in his youth, they will do anything. Also note how the media did not report on the disposition of the case.

That is what is going on with these ostentatious displays over the alleged domestic terrorism threat. The FBI and DOJ looked at the way the political class reacted to the January 6 protests and realized they could use their fear as a tool of control. A few times a year they will arrest some patsies for trying to attack a politician and then use these as examples at public hearings. The FBI will never have to answer another difficult question from Congress.

This is also a nice bit of insurance in case the people screw up again and vote Trump back into office. The FBI and DOJ assume that Trump will do what they would do if the roles were reversed and that is seek revenge. Any digging around in the FBI or DOJ will be met with howling about Trump’s links to domestic terrorism. The Russian collusion hoax will be replaced by the insurrection hoax. The media, of course, already knows the drill so they will be all over this too.

There is another aspect to this. Orwell noted how authoritarian regimes needed an enemy to rally the people against. He was a socialist so he naturally thought a traitor to the cause made for the best villain. Emmanuel Goldstein from 1984 and Snowball from Animal Farm were both modeled after Trotsky. Liberal democracy, on the other hand, just needs non-democratic enemies. They do not have to be from the ruling class to be a useful villain to rally support.

In the last thirty years, the empire has had many types of Muslim baddies to use as the designated threat to democracy. The American police state was built as a defense against this alleged threat. Russia has been conjured into a global threat to democracy for the same reason. Now they are manufacturing all sorts of domestic baddies to be the great threat to the system. The intelligence agencies are always right there to confirm the regimes worst fears.

It is not that people are sitting around saying, “We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs, gentlemen.” This fear of what lies outside the snow globe that is imperial politics just comes naturally to people who have to no real purpose. Politics in a managerial state is ceremonial, having no real impact on life. Despite their lofty titles, the people in the political system feel utterly helpless. Fear and paranoia are the natural consequences of their impotence.

In the end, nothing much will change for the Dirt People. When the FBI needs some trophies to display to Congress, they will round up the usual suspects. Sure, many now wriggle through the net as even the dumbest have caught on to how this works, but there is always at least one idiot willing to play along. Otherwise, the domestic terrorism unit will be creating security theater for the political class. They will be the narrator telling them to fear what lies outside the Capital Beltway.

There will no need for “digging around in the FBI or DOJ.”
All of the domestic enemies in those agencies should replace the “insurrectionists” in whatever facility they are incarcerated in, just as they would have been when Thomas Jefferson pardoned all of the “seditionists” that John Adams had persecuted and prosecuted, after he won the election against him.

Empires do not treat the core population very well, so they have to worry that the core population will get tired of sharing the wealth and revolt against their rulers. The core population of the United States — despite being abused and insulted for years now — still gets its ass kissed enough in mass entertainment that it doesn’t feel TOO neglected. The way to soothe the jitters of any population in modern times is to write a television show based on it. Ironically, the more diverse the programming gets, the more the relatable shows based on You seem special.… Read more »

This doesn’t deserve a down vote but its not correct. TV has much less the reach it used to in term of percentage of the population and it skews old. CNN for example, lost 90% of the younger viewership of some shows. The CW which is an entertainment network with several well known franchises like Walker Texas Ranger, Batwoman, Super Girl, Legends of Tommorow (a DC thing) is bankrupt and hasn’t made money in 15 years. Its for sale if you some millions lying around. The most any show gets, the Equalizer remake with Queen Latifah manages 20 million views.… Read more »

There was something profoundly weird about the Lyndon Johnson era, I will give you that. Vietnam wasn’t the half of it.

Yes. The act of ’65. That was the lie that opened the devil’s gates for all of us. Canada, where I live, had a similar “opening up” to mixed races at about the same time. Canada so often moves in lockstep with the United States.

Here, in the North, even the right-wing Conservative government keeps pumping in hundreds of thousands of nonwhite immigrants every year. There’s no stopping it no matter who you vote for. All they have to do is cry “raciss” to get that spigot turned on again. It’s sickening, such a lack of will and backbone.

Anyone have any speculations about why Sinema and Machin are resisting the progressives so vigorously?

One answer is that their resistance gives them a great deal of leverage to ask for things that they want. But so far, I don’t see signs that they have cashed in on that leverage.

Maybe I’m too cynical, but I find it hard to believe that Sinema and Manchin are really motivated by concerns for the people and the integrity of Congress.

The regime is right to have a sense of insecurity. It has sacrificed the legitimacy it enjoyed since the aftermath of the civil war by adhering to some minimum threshold of the appearance of representative governance as well as some decent level of restraint in exploiting their positions for personal aggrandizement. That threshold roughly defined and conveyed to the population though its own indoctrination vehicles like the education system and popular media for 100 years. They have been working to reverse that indoctrination to the opposite principles with some success, but only in the young. In any case, those opposite… Read more »

The context of the operation, including the brass announcements about the purposes of training, show that this is an intimidation tactic, “flexing” on white rural America.
Lon Horiuchi may have been target shooting at that range for years, but when he puts a picture of MountainDog6 on his target and then says MountainDog6 is a serious deadly threat who needs to be taken out, well, thats’s a threat to MD6, that is an act of deliberate intimidation. Doesnt matter that he has been doing that same activity there for years, the context and accompanying communication makes it intimidating.

The Security State clearly is in control, and “trophies” are hauled in front of Congress to terrorize the public. The elected officials are dutiful whores, and even the Administrative State largely is subordinate to those who have implemented the American version of The Great Terror. I do not agree this is business as usual, either. The Rubicon was crossed when state-sponsored terror in the form of BLM/Antifa riots happened last year. There is no turning back now, and this inevitably will end in great violence. I have no clue who comes out on top but there will be no winners.… Read more »

As you’ve implied, the question would be whether or not these comments add/contribute to the general conversation. That’s one thing I like about the comment software on UNZ or AmRen—you can block a commenter who posts in excess of his ability to contribute meaningfully to the general discourse. On the other hand, it is all too easy to block commenters that you simply don’t agree with, and this can promote intellectual laziness and bubble formation. Karl, would be a hard call.

Robin Sage is the graduation exercise for the students in Q-school for U.S. Army Special Forces. It’s not an abnormal exercise and they’ve been doing it in the piney woods of the North Carolina piedmont for decades. As a reservist C-130 pilot, I got to fly some students into “Pineland” for a night HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) jump and it was a blast. I always wondered if those students graduated from Q-school. In 2002, a NC deputy sheriff shot and killed one of the participants in Robin Sage and wounded another. They assumed he was part of the exercise… Read more »

Nuts & bolts. First, infiltration works both ways. The military is desperate for recruits, and there is nothing to stop a covert operator from signing on and maneuvering into an “anti-terrorism” unit. A billet in intelligence would be a nice touch. Ray Epps would be proud. Second, their game plan revolves around setting up and then taking down a manufactured “ad hoc militia” unit stocked with numerous yokels & dupes. Easy win for them, but you don’t have to play along. Third, there really is no defense against the bolt from the blue. Yes, you can round up tens of… Read more »

What’s striking to me is that in all of these announcements about the terrible threat posed by domestic terrorists, I’ve yet to see them offer one single real-life example of what they’re talking about.

You’d think with such a widespread threat, they could find at least a few examples of the “White supremacists” and “White nationalist extremists” they’re mobilizing against…..

Citing “the threat of domestic terrorism” as a reason for conducting these exercises is definitely more palatable to the public than, say, “we really enjoy LARPing Call of Duty.” Obviously, all militaries have to LARP in order to be prepared for battle, but it definitely sounds less gratuitous if it’s justified as a duty rather than fun.

That would suggest that they need or want an objective basis for their actions. They aren’t interested in objective facts; they are partisans.

Heh, that seems like a big number. What the recruiters won’t tell the kids is that it is taxed at a much higher rate. They also won’t tell them they don’t get it as a lump sum up front. Also, if your service is delayed under their terms, the next payment is pushed back. If you’re out early, even for an injury, you won’t get the full payment because you didn’t serve the full time according to the government. Basically, this is a big, gaudy number they’re putting in front of the rubes that will only help them pull in… Read more »

Tend to agree. These type of “jobs” have attraction in prestige as much as remuneration. Take out the prestige and all you buy for the buck are the second tier dregs.

Regarfing “infiltration”: is any right-thinking intelligent person really going to spend years infiltrating an ever-more rotten military?

I suspect that what current military “leaders” are doing— with their purge of “extremists”, mandatory “anti-racism” training, and praise of “diversity”— is to attract the sorts of degenerates the military used to keep out; while making military service unattractive for normal patriotic Americans.

Who would want to infiltrate that?

Better yet, reduce your tax liability and increase the amount of government benefits you can draw. A bankrupt government can’t field an army if it can’t pay it’s soldiers.

A lot of these reports are fear porn for both the left and right. The left will feel an uprising will happen any minute, and the right will fear the military will be used against them at the slightest provocation.

There will be no armed insurrection, and the survival of the current government will not be from armed combat, but from how many people are willing to be good old-fashioned wreckers.

It’s not a law. It’s a “mandate.” < L. mandare, to command. Literally a command. There is no mask "law" in Utah (or almost anywhere else).
City ordinances and mayors' imperial commands don't mean a damned thing unless you let them.

And there is not federal law or state law in Utah requiring you to dress up like you're about to rob a stage coach, as of yesterday:

I agree with you regarding the general public approach to authority. The mask is an excellent tell; but it also seems so obvious to us now. Who will challenge a lone man in a store with a face like thunder to put a mask on? Hardly anybody. The mandates are just too difficult to enforce. Here in the UK, I have noticed a general apathy toward voting/government/masking in general. There is also increased hostility, from the middle classes, toward the police and their antics.

Augustus formed the elite guard which were called Praetorians because he wanted to send a message to any future Romans in the senatorial class who might be contemplating sedition. There was not to be another assassination attempt by political enemies under his watch. It worked well until the Praetorians realized they had the power to remove and replace emperors. Power then quickly evolved to a bidding war. Keep the Praetorians happy and you could remain Emperor. If Trump returns, we’re about to find out if the analogy with ancient Rome holds true.
