Army Dispatched in Response to End the Fed Protests
Saturday, March 21, 2009
The Liberty Restoration Project blog has posted an advisory released last November by the United States Army Reserve. “The United States Army Reserve Command is publishing this Force Protection Advisory to advise all Army Reserve personnel of the planned protests at all Federal Reserve Banks and office locations within the United States on 22 November 2008,” the document reads. “This message provides situational awareness and recommended mitigation measures.”

According to the Army Reserve, the folks gathered and exercising the First Amendment in response to the Federal Reserve’s loan sharking operation are essentially terrorists.
The Army “established relationships” with local law enforcement and the FBI and encouraged them to “update alert rosters,” according to the document. In 2003, Jim Garamone, writing for the American Forces Press Service, noted that the “Northern Command cooperates with the other unified commands and shares intelligence with them” and also has forged “relationships [that] cut across federal, state and local agencies, and include players from law-enforcement, emergency services, intelligence agencies and the military.”
In 2008, Air Force Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and NorthCom, told attendees of the National Homeland Defense Foundation symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado, “that effectively defending the homeland and responding to natural or man-made disasters requires an integrated approach that involves federal, state and local governments, and even international and private organizations,” the latter a reference to InfraGard, the private sector Gestapo with shoot to kill orders issued by the FBI (see The FBI Deputizes Business).
“We believe those relationships will be key to our success,” Air Force Gen. Ralph Eberhart told Garamone.
Northcom and the Army Reserve’s mission apparently also include reporting “all potential protest activities to the Army Reserve Operations Center.” The Army Reserve falls under the Pentagon’s Continuity of Operations program “that ensure[s] the execution of mission-essential functions… during a national security or domestic emergency” (see Militarizing the US “Homeland”: NORTHCOM’s Tasking).
In addition to Northcom “cooperation” with local law enforcement in regard to entirely legal and peaceful demonstrations, a document sent to Alex Jones earlier this month exposes an effort by Homeland Security to work with law enforcement in Missouri to demonize supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr. Ron Paul is quite specific in his call for the Federal Reserve to be closed down. Paul told Alex Jones on March 12 that “the people responsible for the economic crisis should not be hailed as saviors and given more power to fix the problem that they created, but arrested and criminally prosecuted,” as Paul Joesph Watson reported for Prison Planet.
In 2005, NBC obtained a secret 400-page Defense Department document listing more than 1,500 “suspicious incidents” across the country related to peaceful anti-war demonstrations. “The Defense Department document is the first inside look at how the U.S. military has stepped up intelligence collection inside this country since 9/11, which now includes the monitoring of peaceful anti-war and counter-military recruitment groups,” NBC reported.
