Armed officers with no insignias, badges or name tags “guarding” protest in Washington D.C.

Journalist Alejandro Alvarez of WTOP news in Washington D.C. has been covering the protests in our nation’s capitol.  On June 3, he noticed that many of the security officers had no visible badges, insignias or name tags on their uniforms and posted photos of this on his Twitter account.

Alvarez later posted photos of a few insignias that were seen, that indicate some of these security officers were Federal Prison Officers from Texas.  The insignias included Three Rivers, and FCC Beaumont.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), whose Director is Michael Carvajal, is an agency under the Department of Justice and is responsible for the care, custody, and control of incarcerated individuals.  The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997 transferred responsibility for adult felons convicted of violating District of Columbia laws to the Bureau.

According to the Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General William Barr, one of the major functions of the Federal Bureau of Prisons is:

Counterterrorism

            *  Provide for public safety and security by focusing on preventing, disrupting, and responding to terrorist activities.

Are Americans exercising their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble considered felons or terrorists?

Who ordered these armed, uniformed officers to remove their identifying insignias, badges and name tags?  And, why?  How could there be any accountability for the actions of these armed, uniformed officers?

Rachel Maddow of MSNBC has done a couple of commentaries on this issue, and you can watch them HERE and HERE.  And see what Muriel Bowser, the Mayor of D.C., said about this HERE.

It seems that many people have also been wondering if any of the unidentified, armed officers could have been private military contractors.

Private military contractors were boots on the ground in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  In an article by James Ridgeway in Mother Jones, is stated “The Blackwater operators described their mission in New Orleans as ‘securing neighborhoods,’ as if they were talking about Sadr City. When National Guard troops descended on the city, the Army Times described their role as fighting ‘the insurgency in the city.’ Brigadier Gen. Gary Jones, who commanded the Louisiana National Guard’s Joint Task Force, told the paper, ‘This place is going to look like Little Somalia. We’re going to go out and take this city back. This will be a combat operation to get this city under control.’”

Recently, Defense Secretary Mark Esper described U.S. cities as a “battlespace” in a White House call with governors.

The U.S. is NOT a “battlespace” and there should NOT be unidentified, armed officers on our streets.

Why is it so hard to find the truth today?  It is because the mainstream media has been controlled by major corporate players for years and years.  Day by day their reports are loaded with deception which is so massive that a locomotive barreling down the track is losing steam because it can barely pull the load.  More

Opportunistic Racism IN THE DC PROBATE COURT

‘EASY (BLACK) MONEY’

You may think a probate court like the one in our nation’s capitol functions to preserve and protect the financial assets of dependent and defenseless senior citizens.  Think again!

What it mostly does is steal their money and discard the disposable human remains behind the imprimatur of government sanction, leaving only poverty, betrayal and emotional devastation in its wake.

THE UGLY REALITY IS THIS:

The DC probate system targets African-Americans and their families who have the misfortune of (a) living in its jurisdiction, and (b) lacking the political and educational wherewithal to fight back against a corrupt system of opportunistic racism that leaves victims intimidated, isolated, and outgunned in their futile resistance against a cold and cruel government take-over of their lives.  In this way, elderly African-Americans are easy pickins – a steady stream of cash-for-the-taking by greedy court minions who wouldn’t dare try this scam on more affluent and connected white families.

Just ask Jenny Horace, a 91 year old Black woman living in the North West section of Washington, DC.  Mrs. Horace is in good health and has an attentive daughter who helped her with her daily routines.  The mother enjoyed regular outings with her daughter. She attended church on Sundays and often afterwards visits with friends and neighbors.  Mrs. Horace lived independently in her home for more than 50 years.

The “problem” is that she owns her home.  This means she has money.  And the people at DC Probate want it. More
