The buzz is that one day soon Donald Trump's administration is going to arrest all of the many thousands of unknown people who have been secretly indicted and jail them for their crimes. The implication is that Trump will go after "bad guys and gals," thereby dramatically draining the swamp of all of the corrupt swamp critters that have for so long sullied the political, economic, judicial, police and business systems in the USSA.
Let me say that I am highly skeptical.
To begin with, Donald Trump is himself a swamp denizen who has surrounded himself with other swamp critters. Secondly, the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) for the last few years has permitted the USSA president and military to outright kill or to secretly arrest, detain, try and incarcerate anyone, anywhere in the world -- all done under military law and without any habeas corpus, public trial or public knowledge of the whereabouts or conditions of confinement of the person(s) targeted by the USSA deep state.
Not to put too fine a point on it: how do you know that you, or one of your friends, colleagues, acquaintances, neighbors or family members, are not a target of one of those many thousands of sealed criminal indictments, supposing that they do in fact exist? Suppose that I, or other truther researchers or political activists, are slated to be secretly arrested and disappeared? Suppose that, in reality, the deep state is getting ready to viciously go after us, in order to even more ruthlessly consolidate its power?
The fact is that we simply do not know who has been secretly indicted, though I do think it is highly unlikely that tens of thousands of politicians, businessmen and women, financiers, law enforcement personnel, military officers and the like would be summarily rounded up, publicly tried and incarcerated.
Is the system going to massively arrest and imprison its own? That seems improbable, from a political, police, judicial and logistical point of view. The only way that that type of operation can realistically take place is if martial law is declared and the military starts sweeping the neighborhoods, towns and cities of the USSA and hauling tens of thousands of people away with hoods over their heads. In that case, kiss the life that you have known good-bye, because you would/will be under overt military dictatorship. There will be no due process, or constitutional protections. And even if the military does arrest thousands of supposedly "bad people" what if the generals declare that you are also a "bad" person, for any reason or no reason at all, and a squad of soldiers then smashes your door down at 3:00am and takes you away with a hood over your head?
In recent days, Cindy Kay Currier came out with some very cogent commentary that closely aligns with many of my own thoughts on this matter.
I noticed that a "cabinet level" decision was taken today to militarize the USSA southern border.
Hooray! -- said the alt-right alternative media with one voice.
But be careful what you wish for. The same soldiers who keep people out, can also keep people in. The very ones who gun down people trying to enter the USSA, can also gun down anyone trying to exit the USSA. The very same soldiers who patrol the border today, could be assigned to patrol your neighborhood tomorrow, you know, just to make sure that the nation is secure. And if they decide you are not sufficiently patriotic and are, therefore, a threat to the nation's security, what then?
