The enemies of democracy

It sounds as if the new Austrian government may be following the lead of the God-Emperor in rooting out the anti-democratic Deep State:
The raids came without warning, surprising even the intelligence operatives whose job is to never be caught off guard.

On the morning of Feb. 28, police stormed offices of Austria’s main domestic intelligence agency and carted off some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets in open crates and plastic bags. Top spy service officials working from home that day were greeted by officers threatening to break down their doors.

The extraordinary decision to target the agency responsible for defending the country from a multitude of threats, including right-wing extremism, had been made by the service’s new bosses: members of the far-right Freedom Party.

The reason? Defending the totalitarian North Korean regime from an Austrian espionage operation, among others cited in the search warrant. Critics saw absurd pretext for a politically motivated stab at an independent institution that could threaten the party’s agenda.

More than five months later, the impact continues to ripple across this central European nation of 9 million – and far beyond. In a country whose geopolitical positioning between East and West has long made it a nest of spies – “a playground for all nations” in the words of one Austrian intelligence veteran – the hometown service has been left in disarray.

“It’s paralysis,” the veteran said. “How could you work in such an environment?”

Intelligence services across the West, meanwhile, have looked on in dismay – and have chosen to protect their own secrets by freezing Austria out.
And yet, it looks rather like the duly-elected Austrian government is working with both the U.S. white hats as well as Russia. Is anyone really surprised that the enemies of the people are siding with a shadowy, unaccountable intelligence agency rather than a popular government freely elected by the people?

One of the great needs that the people of the USA has, is to realize that the "Deep State" and the "intelligence agencies" are the most dangerous threat we face. JFK realized that, and so have other leaders. So far, it looks like only Trump has been able to hold his own.

I pray for Trump and his allies. We are in need of the Lord's help.

Pretty much every state organ that is not elected is united in it's fight against the FPÖ and the right wing in general. Secret service, judges, beaurocrats....
A zealous SJW state attorney even rounded up the heads of the Identitarians and charged them with being a criminal organization. Thank god that atleast the green party is no longer in parliament, not that it stops the media from constantly asking them for their opinion.

Marines can operate anywhere, and not being part of the Army (or derived from it, like the Air Force), Posse Comitatus does not apply to them.

Defending a nation is the responsibility of its military, not some clandestine group that doesn't directly answer to the nation's leaders.

But this does:

The Secretary of Defense shall prescribe such regulations as may be necessary to ensure that any activity (including the provision of any equipment or facility or the assignment or detail of any personnel) under this chapter does not include or permit direct participation by a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps in a search, seizure, arrest, or other similar activity unless participation in such activity by such member is otherwise authorized by law.

...targeting the agency responsible for defending the country from a multitude of threats.

The security services are heavily implicated in 9/11, 7/7 and sundry other Gladio machinations. The security services were involved in covering up massive paedophile activity in the UK (see: Kincora boys home in Northern Ireland).
I guess the Austrians realised if they really want to take their country back then certain state organs must be neutralized.

Blogger Dave August 18, 2018 8:48 PM  

Among the BVT’s work in recent years has been sniffing out Russian influence, notably attempts at election interference. The agency also has tracked Islamist extremists and investigated the activities of violent far-right groups, including Islamophobic and anti-Semitic hate crimes.

Oh noes, Russian interference in elections? Who wrote this trash? Oh, right...The Washington Post’s Berlin bureau.


“I have never experienced an anti-Semitic threat from Muslims in Austria,” said Schlomo Hofmeister, a Vienna-based rabbi for the country’s small Jewish community. “But I receive every week threats from right-wing Austrians.”

Every week, Schlomo? I think Schlomo is trying to tell the BVT they might want to change their approach to investigating anti-Semitic hate crimes.

But.... the Marines already raided the CIA in the USA long ago, just like this Austrian raid. And...not one Marine volunteered for guard
duty, or any duty with the last Administration, also they have shown complete loyalty to the Trump administration.

You open your mouth, without real research.

There are EO's including one by BHO that give total control to the POTUS "in emergencies." That EO was created by BHO to give Hillary complete power for anything, and it has not been altered or changed, except to add to it's force.

Trump has put it on the table. Trump tweets and has removed as security clearance .This seems to take it to the next level.

Blogger Robert Pinkerton August 19, 2018 1:03 AM  

Civilian spy services are recruited from a different socio-economic class than are the supermajority of military personnel, so elements of arrogant class-prejudice are in play. A selection that Vox quoted in extenso a few posts ago, called Mr. Trump an "anti-elite" candidate. Parts of his program suggested that one unspoken plank of his platform is to be Tribune of the Plebs (that is: Us Commoners); which must gravely offend pseudo-"aristocratic" sensibility.

No one in the media who play defence for them give a crap about democracy. The voters make the decisions, then they fight to stop them winning the day. That's.....what enemies of the people means.

Regarding the USMC and Posse Comitatus, come now, you all know as well as I do that years ago we had laws restricting military participation in domestic affairs that were sometimes even observed, but today Posse Comitatus applies - or doesn't - to anyone the side that wins the war says it does.

The one and only War Crime you have no defense against is losing the damn war.

Blogger Damelon Brinn August 19, 2018 8:50 AM  

@31, Jack, yeah, I've seen the argument that Americans would turn hard on Trump if he used the Marines on US soil. Really? Like they objected when Clinton and Reno used the military at Waco? I'm sure the Enemy of the People would tell the People that that was technically legal because drugs (even though the drugs were a lie) and this is totally different. And the People would shrug and then focus on what was discovered in the raid -- direct connections between the intelligence services and the MSM, for instance.

The "independent" agency is supposed to fight right wingers? I guess this is like how Brexit and the election of Trump are bad for democracy. Democracy=stuff I like.

The media truly is the enemy of the people. TDS has exposed them once and for all. They used to have some plausible deniability, but the extreme case of TDS has caused them to announce their partisanship from the hilltops!

"Idolizing the USMC will not save you."

I don't idolize them. I'm Army.
The USMC has a longer initial entry training, but after that, the differences between the Army and the Marines are rather minimal.

I've also noticed that the Marine Corps trains marines for target-range shooting, not combat shooting. When a Marine transfers to the Army, he quickly finds that the way the Marine Corp trained him to shoot (take all day to get a shot precisely center of mass) will cause him to fail on the Army combat rifle qualification course of fire. The army trains soldiers to "shoot the enemy before he shoots you" -- put a bullet into the enemy soldier as quickly as possible, so that you disrupt his process of aiming and firing at you -- once that's accomplished, you can take a leisurely follow-up shot to kill him -- or rapidly switch to another threat, and disrupt his process. In any event, the time to take a follow-up shot is short compared to the time it takes to recover from the pain of a 5.56 splitting into 3 or 4 pieces and spiraling around inside your body, or blowing out some cone-shaped chunk of flesh out of the rear of your arm or leg.

The worst a microwave transmitter can do to you is cause heating of tissue. It CANNOT cause cancer (microwave photons are huge... on the same order of magnitude as a cell all the way up to a few inches), and therefore, are incapable of causing genetic damage UNLESS you're silly enough to keep standing in front of such a tranmitter until you feel your skin literally cooking.

" Though i was wrong about the posse comitatus act non longer being in effect, I was thinking of something else."

Posse Comitatus played a role in a deployment I was on (stateside) in 2002, in which soldiers augmented Immigration and Customs at border crossing Ports of Entry while the two civilian services put more people through the training pipeline.

Because of Posse Comitatus, we could only "act as eyes and ears" (searching vehicles, etc.) and do "administrative" tasks (such as escorting someone from place A to place B.) Posse Comitatus prevented the soldier augmentees from both carrying weapons, conducting interviews of those wishing to enter the country, and having any arrest powers.

If you stuff them correctly, body bags are quiet. Still as the grave, in fact.
