Martial law-style drill caught on camera
by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | MARCH 29, 2015
Footage out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida shot earlier this week shows military and law enforcement practicing the internment of citizens during martial-law style training.
The clip shows armed troops arresting role players on the street before a column of prisoners are marched towards a mock internment facility. Black Hawk choppers are also seen whizzing between buildings.
The exercise was accompanied by very little media coverage. A Sun-Sentinel report said that Broward County police would be “assisting members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces who are undergoing urban warfare training.”
The drill, which was held in locations the military refused to disclose beforehand, began on March 17 and ended on Friday. 200 military personnel from all four branches, Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy, took part in the exercise.
“The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas,” states the report. Residents were advised “not to be alarmed by the Black Hawk helicopters in the sky.”
Broward County also saw similar drills back in March 2014, when Navy SEALS practicing storming a university building from a helicopter.
Concerns continue to circulate that such drills are designed for dual purpose and are part of a plan to acclimate Americans to accept martial law in a time of national emergency. As we have exhaustively documented, the fact that preparations are being made to use the military during domestic unrest is manifestly provable.
Jade Helm, an upcoming military drill that will involve nine states, caused controversy after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise.
As we reported earlier this week, the exercise will involve soldiers operating “undetected amongst civilian populations,” to see if they can infiltrate without being noticed.
An illegal immigrant male residing in the United States is more likely to be gainfully employed than a male who is a legal immigrant or U.S.-born citizen

WASHINGTON, DC — An illegal immigrant male residing in the United States is more likely to be gainfully employed than a male who is a legal immigrant or U.S.-born citizen, a senior demographer at the Pew Research Center think tank told lawmakers.
In 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, an estimated 91 percent of illegal immigrant males were in the workforce. This compares to 84 percent of legal immigrant men and 79 percent of U.S.-born males, Pew Research Center demographer Jeffrey Passel in written testimony prepared for a March 26 hearing held by the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee.
Put in a different way, legal and illegal immigrant males had a better chance to be in the workforce than U.S.-born men in 2012.
For women, the opposite is true. U.S.-born women are more likely to be in the labor force than immigrant females.
“Unauthorized immigrant men of working age [16 years of age and older] are considerably more likely to be in the workforce than U.S.-born men (91% versus 79%),” Passel declared in his written testimony.
“For women, the opposite is true; only 61% of unauthorized immigrant women are in the labor force, compared with 72% of U.S.-born women,” Mr. Passel continued.
The data provided by the Pew demographer shows that U.S.-born females are more likely to be in the workforce than illegal immigrant women (61%) and legal immigrant women (68%), respectively.
In 2012, there were an estimated 10 million more males (82. 3 million) participating in the workforce than women (72.7 million), according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Overall, there were an estimated 8.1 million workers who are not legally authorized to work, both men and women, participating in the labor force in 2012 by either working or looking for work. Illegal workers made up about 5.1 percent of the labor force, which translates to nearly one-in-twenty U.S. workers, explained Passel.
The labor participation rate covers individuals working or looking for work.
“Unauthorized immigrants are more likely than the overall U.S. population to be of working age and less likely to be young or older,” explained Mr. Passel. “That is one reason that the unauthorized immigrant share of the labor force is higher than its share of the population overall.”
“While there have been some modest changes in labor force participation rates over the past 20 years, the participation of unauthorized immigrant men and women, relative to the U.S.-born population and legal immigrants, has remained essentially unchanged since 2005,” he added.
The top three states with the highest share of illegal immigrants participating in the labor force are Nevada (10.2% of the workforce), California (9.4%), and Texas (8.9%), revealed the Pew Research Center.
Most work in either the service, hospitality, or construction industry.
The awesome Ben Shapiro – one of the best young radio talkers in America, and a great writer to boot – has just released another terrific video. The subject? Obama’s negotiations with Iran. The question he tries to answer is: can Islamonazi-in-Chief ayatollah Khamenei be trusted?
Obama believes that you can negotiate with everybody. Something about “smart power” and “smart diplomacy.” There’s just one minor problem with that line of thinking: you can’t. For example, it was a major mistake of the British to negotiate with Hitler; their diplomatic agreements with him actually allowed Hitler to rebuild his army and, later, to invade large parts of Europe. None of that would have happened if Neville Chamberlain had a little something called “a spine.”
Ayatollah Khamenei may not be German, but he’s a nazi nonetheless – an Islamonazi that is. He lets crowds chant “death to America” (and they mean it), he’s busily trying to develop nuclear weapons that will actually enable him to attack Israel and the U.S. and, oh yeah, he’s a believer in a Shiite version of Radical Islam, whose sole aim it is to conquer and dominate the entire world. The only thing he wants to negotiate about is how long it’ll take him to reach his goals, not whether he’ll be able to commit the genocide on all non-believers he dreams of.
So, a question to Obama-supporters who do think you can negotiate in good faith with the ayatollah: have you learned nothing from history? On what do you base your assumption that he can be trusted? On his hatred for America? His support for terrorist organizations everywhere? Or his calls to wipe Israel off the map? Please tell me.

As a retired DEA agent, It is saddening to see the decline and demoralization of any law enforcement agency, be it ATF in the wake of the Fast and Furious scandal, the Secret Service, the Justice Department, which I served proudly for a quarter century, or any other. That also includes the Department of Homeland Security, which was established after I retired, in the wake of 9-11.
I was reminded of this just in the past few days when it was announced that Harris Tarin, Washington-based official of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Public Affairs Council, was joining DHS as a senior policy adviser to the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties section.
Tarin, like MPAC, hasn’t found a counter-terror enforcement action he likes. He has been a consistent critic of any attempt by law enforcement to develop intelligence within the Muslim community in the US. The NYPD has been a particular target of his ire over their own intelligence probes. That this man would be brought into DHS is a sad reflection on the leadership of Jeh Johnson, an empty suit hack that President Obama found in places only he could find to place into sensitive government positions.
Tarin isn’t the first suspicious character brought into DHS. That distinction belongs to one Mohamed Elibiary, who was hired by Johnson’s predecessor, the equally inept Janet Napolitano. Elibiary is an open supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, a man who abused his position by extracting sensitive information out of a DHS computer, which he used to attack Texas Governor Rick Perry. But that’s not all. As described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Elibiary was a prominent participant and speaker at a 2004 Texas event that paid homage to none other to the Ayatollah Khomeini.
When it comes to protecting our southern border with Mexico, DHS’s priorities are Obama’s priorities. That is, accommodating the entry of thousands of Central Americans who are showing up at the border and falling into the arms of Border Patrol agents, waiving deportations-now by the millions- and finding a way to help DREAMERS realize their dreams. Protecting the American people and protecting our sovereignty are far down the list.
Where does that leave the thousands of dedicated investigators and patrol officers who want to do their job as they understood it to be when they signed on? Demoralized and counting the days until their retirement. That is the situation described to me recently by two friends in DHS. Unfortunately, for them, they are not counting days, rather years.
Islamberg, located in upstate New York, is a 70 acre Islamic compound.
The majority of these are black American who converted to radical Islam. It is also the headquarters of
Muslims of the Americas, the International Quranic Open University and the United Muslim Christian Forum.
Islamberg is the best known among 35 such compounds, ranging in size from 25 to 300 acres.
A recent documentary suggests that these Islamic compounds and people who live there are participating in jihad training.
Islamberg and the other ‘Muslim only towns’ are led by a radical Imam Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani.
