On September 27th, in Springfield, Illinois, the Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will conduct a presentation on improvised explosive devices (IEDs). This demonstration is an extension of the FBI’s National Improvised Explosive Familiarization (NIEF) initiative “designed to raise awareness of the use of common chemicals to produce IEDs.”
The Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association (IFCA) are an organization that assists and represents “the crop production supply and service industry while promoting the sound stewardship and utilization of agricultural inputs.”
The NIEF was created in 2007. They are “an intelligence-driven and a threat-focused national security and law enforcement organization” that becomes involved with local and state law enforcement with regard to terrorist and intelligence threats.
Just last month, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requested 700 pounds of high density ammonium nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX explosives. These ingredients are known to be very high powered explosives.
The DHS was given oversight of procurement of ammonium nitrate after Congress requested they “regulate the sale and transfer of ammonium nitrate by an ammonium nitrate facility…to prevent the misappropriation or use of ammonium nitrate in an act of terrorism.”
The Ammonium Nitrate Security Program focuses on preventing a terrorist attack by use of ammonium nitrate in a home-made bomb by requiring that its sale and those that purchase it be registered with the DHS. Purchasers are screened against the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).
Meanwhile, the DHS and FBI are warning about a possible false flag attacks using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and “anarchists”.
Mainstream media reported that the “FBI and DHS assess with high confidence anarchist extremists will target… infrastructure in Tampa and Charlotte, with potentially significant impacts on public safety and transportation.”
Domestic terrorists, according to the DHS, are more of a threat to American safety than foreign terrorist organizations. This harkens to the 2009 report DHS published for the Obama administration called Rightwing Extremism that stated domestic extremists, particularly white supremacists, were proposed to be the newest and most dangerous threat to the US since al-Qaeda.
While admitting that the agency had no definitive proof that “domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, [however] rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.”
The FBI warned that anarchists would throw eggs and Molotov cocktails at the RNC convention and are still decrying extremists will attack the DNC in order to disrupt the proceedings. The FBI claims that “given the historical precedence and recent arrests, we assess anarchist extremists will likely continue to exploit lawful protests to facilitate violent criminal activity at events like the upcoming political conventions.”
The DHS are also educating police departments on terrorist IED threats with the assistance of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCC). The DHS claims that international bombings will be carried out on US soil and that the agency will develop partnerships with local and state law enforcement to prevent this from happening.
Funded by the DHS, at the University of Rhode Island, Jimmie Carol Oxley, chemist and professor, works with the DHS on projects with her students to analyze IEDs from manufacturing to various “terrorist scenarios” that these diverse explosives could be used for.
Oxley has worked with many governmental agencies, such as the FBI, NSF, and National Academy of Sciences (NAS) National Research Council (NRC); as well as written over 80 papers on “energetic materials (explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics). She has worked on law enforcement issues [with the FBI simulating the World Trade Center bombing (1993), with FEL examining large fertilizer bombs, and with ATF studying the behavior of pipe bombs]; however, her main research interest is hazard analysis of energetic materials.”
On a 2,200 acre site, Oxley and her students take IEDs constructed in the lab and detonate them to “see what happens.” They use chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide to study how chemical additives can reduce or exacerbate the effects of a home-made bomb. Most of Oxley’s students go on to work for the DHS specializing in criminal and terrorist investigations.
In May of 2012, the Global Campaign Against Improvised Explosive Devices (GCAIED) wrote a letter to Obama with the signatures of 23 members of Capitol Hill to bring “consensus” against the threat of IEDs. With intelligence gathered by the National Counterterrorism Center’s Worldwide Incident Tracking System, there is a doubling of IEDs being manufactured annually by civilians. The GCAIED claims that IEDs will be used to attack civilian populations with the intention to disrupt daily routines, healthcare and the November elections.
The connection to IEDs then turns toward the US veterans who may become violent and dangerous because of prolonged exposure to battlefield conditions combined with being diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Recently, Obama signed an executive order (EO) entitled, “Improving Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans, Service Members, and Military Families” wherein the Department of Defense is given control over the evaluation of the mental health of our returning service men and women by providing US government controlled “effective mental health services for veterans, service members, and their families.”
Obama demands that the VA and the DoD collaborate to provide proactive measures and a psychiatric pre-screen of returning service men and women to prevent erratic behavior. The DoD will “review all existing mental health and substance abuse prevention, education and outreach programs” within the military services and access their effectiveness.
In the Obama administration report “Strengthening Our Military Families” written in 2011, the direction of the document points to identifying all veteran’s potential to become mentally incapacitated due to some psychiatric disorder which would cause them to become violent, depressed, aggressive and inevitably dangerous to society.
While the DHS and FBI are preparing to enact a false flag attack here in the US, the Obama administration is setting up the means to have every US veteran committed to a government-controlled mental hospital as a form of indefinite detention. Once deemed insane, these men and women will not only have their arms taken, but their freedom restricted.
This tactic was enacted by other historical dictators from Mao in China to Hitler in Nazi-controlled Germany. We are witnessing the Fascist takeover of our nation through the actions of the current puppet Barack Obama. They are preparing for martial law and the complete lockdown of our country.
This first of many steps toward our decent into Totalitarianism is being played out in the demonization of our US veterans, while simultaneously witnessing the DHS and FBI using propaganda concerning IEDs when it is the US government that is amassing 1400 pounds worth of ingredients to manufacture a fertilizer bomb.
