No choice?? Who so?

"President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he will send a "surge" of federal agents to Chicago as part of a plan to combat "violent crime."

"Frankly, we have no choice," he said during a speech from the White House Wednesday, announcing that the Department of Justice will send hundreds of agents from the DEA, ATF, U.S. Marshals Service, Department of Homeland Security and FBI to the city to "help drive down violent crime."

The move is part of the so-called "Operation Legend," which was launched in Kansas City, Missouri earlier this year, Trump said. Agents will also be deployed to Albuquerque, New Mexico."

So this began last Dec - and I guess no one knew then??

Vote red? Why? So they can stop being brutalized by their government? Americans aren’t punks that will bow to a tyrannical government if you just beat them up enough. Sorry.

I am going to pose my concern to you since it has been ignored on a number of occasions it’s been brought up and I think you may be a good brain to tap on it

if the justification for these federal stormtroopers is that they are protecting federal property from violence and we’ve already seen they are using an extremely loose definition of violence to trigger activation...

And trump recently announced putting up all new statues and hasn’t said where those would be but statues are part of the authorization for this unit as well... plus all the military surplus they’ve shipped off to local police departments and townships (we have military tanks placed all over these towns up here on display) which could technically be considered federal property as well...

Could we eventually be (if we aren’t already) in a place where due to these things almost the entirety of the country could be considered under federal jurisdiction for this unit to be activated in?

even further then that... what about all our military and diplomatic installations globally? Those are definately federal property too. The implications of this could be HUUUUUUGEEE and I seem to be the only one going down this train of thought

Honestly no clue. I’ve changed my Election focus to avoiding civil war at this point. The players involved no longer matter to me.

"The operation was named after LeGend Taliferro, a four-year-old child who was shot and killed in Kansas City, Missouri in June 2020. Operation Legend was implemented as President Trump increased law enforcement and military efforts to control the George Floyd protests.

On July 3, 2020, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas sent a letter to the Governor Mike Parson stating that the city was "at a crisis point" regarding to crime."
Courtsey of the president of law and order...

Iam watching and reading all this and iam thinking to myself....Trump was such a perfect Trojan horse. TPTB just couldn't have chosen better....to hammer in that last nail in America's coffin. I think that this operation is to segue things in, acclimating everyone on both sides. Like a frog being slowly boiled.

Der Spiegel must know a thing or two....

Police have lost the hearts and minds of Americans.

So yeah, this won't end well.

What's it say about America, if people were so easily subverted?

Thanks.
My thoughts on this are that this is to inaugurate "battlefield America". Everything that has happened over the last 2-3 decades has led up to this point. If you may remember, the 2012 NDAA declared it as much. This isn't something easy to do because of pushback, which is why Gen. Milley came out and apologized over wearing his fatigues and accompanying Trump for his St. John's photo-op and the Lafayette park debacle. As such, "they" have to use the excuse of these federal units in quelling violence or assisting local LEOs but it's obvious it will be taken further than that. This isn't the first time that a child has been wounded while sleeping. I mean, where was Operation Legend when a SWAT team threw a flashbang grenade into a baby's crib?

Its seems its all being done incrementally so that people aren't rattled, only to wake up when it is too late. For example, Admiral Mike Mullen and Gen Dempsey criticized Milley and Trump over his deployment the 1600 troops in DC. The former don't seem to mind about the storm troopers (or maybe they do but it wasn't reported) so there is no uproar. I mean, the point being Operation Legend isn't outright martial law but is being used to (legally and with as little opposition as possible), segue into invoking the Insurrection Act.

I don't think that diplomatic installations abroad should be of any concern at this point...that's covered by the multitude of bases and lily pads around the globe. To me, this all about subduing the homeland by turning it into some sort of war zone.I won't be surprised at all if going forward, starting next year, it will be like Afghanistan or Iraq...with a permanent military presence on the streets. Ofcourse, one could argue that many military personnel wouldn't acquiesce to this but i trust that the higher echelons of power know this and already have a plan B, C, D etc in place. May be it is why the prisoners are being released...who knows?

Doesn’t seem like they need the military tbh. The units They are currently using are under the complete Control of the president and seperate from the military

It doesn't seem that much different from CONPLAN 3500 to me anyway....dialed down a notch maybe.

The other sinister motive behind this could be that, as you may well recall, Barr and the DOJ wanted indefinite detention powers just afew short months ago. These units could very well be used to round up "subversives" under the cover of darkness/chaos (not the present chaos but real SHTF). I imagine they'd be a better a better option than actually using the military.

https://www.newsweek.com/trumps-secret-new-watchlist-lets-his-administration-track-americans-without-needing-warrant-1504772
The Trump administration has created a new and expansive national security watchlist that, for the first time since 9/11, includes Americans who have no connection to terrorism. The new watchlist, authorized through a classified Attorney General order and launched in 2017, is expected to grow to well over one million names. It also allows the government to track and monitor Americans without a warrant, even when there is no evidence they're breaking the law.

And while two separate laws require the government to announce new systems of data collection of Americans, there has been no acknowledgement of the expanded watchlist.

The criteria to be placed on the new watchlist demands that an individual be associated with "transnational" criminal organizations, including front organizations that are actually foreign government entities. Transnational criminal organizations include not just drug cartels, crime syndicates and gangs, but also political groups such as nationalist parties and information activists. Individuals can be watchlisted when they are suspected of corruption, money laundering, computer hacking, stock market manipulation, health care fraud, even wildlife trafficking.

Government officials familiar with the new watchlist say that it will eventually include tens of thousands of Americans, reaching into more than a hundred cities across the United States.

The new Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) watchlist is modeled after the Terrorist Screening Database, which was created in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks as a single repository of terrorist suspects. Over the years, that watchlist has grown to include 1.2 million people, among whom are roughly 6,000 Americans that the FBI associates with domestic terrorism.
