It's Official: U.S. Military Activated within CONUS

It's Official: U.S. Military Activated within CONUS
28 Comments

The US Military has begun operations inside the United States and for the first time in the modern history of the United States, the Department of Defense has been given standby orders to ensure the “continuity of government”, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These extraordinary measures, which include evacuating White House officials to remote quarantined locations, and devolving the nation’s leadership to “second-tier officials”, were originally meant for the aftermath of a nuclear war.

“Above-Top Secret” contingency plans are now in place, in case the nation’s Constitutional power successors are incapacitated by the pandemic. Standby orders have been issued for a series of plans under the US Northern Command (NORTHCOM), which was created in response to the 9/11 attacks as a homeland defense military authority.

These operations are codenamed OCTAGON, FREEJACK and ZODIAC, and include CONPLAN 3400 (homeland defense if the US itself is the battlefield), CONPLAN 3500 (defending civil authorities in an emergency), and CONPLAN 3600 (defending the National Capital Region from an attack). The Defense Secretary, Mark T. Esper, has authorized NORTHCOM to “prepare to deploy” in support of these “potential extraordinary missions”. These include “the possibility of some form of martial law”, where military commanders would be given executive powers across the US until a new civilian leadership would emerge.

An added complication to these plans is that the military itself is vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic, which makes for “extraordinary circumstances.” In recognition of this vulnerability, the Department of Defense has instituted unprecedented restrictions for off-base activities of military personnel. Having first banned overseas travel, the Pentagon is now keeping all uniformed personnel on or nearby military bases across the country and the world.

Several other national security agencies are following the Pentagon’s contingency plans, and that continuity personnel at the White House are “readying [for an] evacuation.”

    A little off topic! But have you noticed the covert operation towards toilet paper? You can’t tell me that the shelves shouldn’t be stocked by now! And after seeing a tractor trailer full of it being hiding from the public or allegedly stolen! I truly believe that the intelligence agencies in our country is behind this psyop!!

      Yes, I have definitely been taking note of this too! Interesting, because I'm noticing those people on TV who keep shaming American citizens for 'hoarding' toilet paper - which is disgusting because many of the people who feel the need to get TP are doing so for valid reasons, like maybe they have a disease that forces them to use the bathroom 30 times a day. I can't tell you how many times I've heard in the past week people say "WHY would anyone need that much TP!?" Well ask anyone who has suffered from cancer or any number of other diseases in the digestive & reproductive organs. No one should have to feel ashamed to be smart and get what they need in advance of a national crisis. They are the ones who are being responsible!

      Plagiarism is not illegal..... but they will bust your butt in Uni or school. I do not care if Hal copy and pasted it, he is a vast collector of info that then confirms as much as possible the validity of it and adds to it. In these trying times I do not care as long as it help others and myself. They may come off as extreme end of the world at times, but without this site I would have not prepared for the 18 months and it opens your eyes. And to be honest in the vast amount of times he is right even if it might be off a degree or two. Sources are ok to verify but anyone can search on their own.

    For your consideration from Forbidden Knowledge TV as follows: Witch Hunt: The Storm Is Upon Us

    I just got off the phone with my friend, who's a retired Marines Special Forces Lieutenant who was just briefed for over an hour by a 3-Star General. What he was told sounds like reports I've been seeing on social media that I've discounted. I know the following sounds starry-eyed and trite, even. For his part, he told the General that he'd believe it when he saw it - but here goes:


    The coronavirus was a Globalist ploy that failed and has been hijacked by the Trump Administration to be used as cover to keep people inside and to prevent collateral damage during a military op of mass arrests. Some targets are very violent and they will fight back. For your safety, it's best to stay inside.


    The operation is live. Arrests are happening in Southern California now. It's being overseen by NAVSPEC. They will arrest 160,000 people in 90 days, including members of the mainstream media and Barry Soetoro.


    They're starting now by taking down Antifa, MS-13, the mafia, drug gangs and other mercenaries hired by Soros and used by the Dems/Deep State.


    These mercenaries were going to conduct mass riots and mayhem after the election but this is being stopped. There will soon be Martial Law, maybe as soon as this Monday.


    Thousands have been arrested in Italy already.


    The situation is "fluid" but it's more or less like this:


    You may have noticed that during Trump's daily coronavirus updates, that starting around the 14th or the 15th, the Presidential Seal was removed from the podium. That seal represents the US Corporation, of which Trump was elected the President and for which he was drafted as a corporate raider to take it over and to restore the Republic. Trump will not be President after January 2021. Or most probably not.


    There will be a financial reset - the end of the dollar/petrodollar.

    The the assets of criminal banksters, Rothschilds, The Committee, etc. who've been stealing from us for decades are being seized.


    We will be repaid. The IRS and the Fed will be abolished and after all of this shakes out, we will only pay consumption taxes of between 7%-15%.


    Everyone will be financially better off when all is said and done.

    We will be informed of a lot of things that have been kept secret; medical breakthroughs, suppressed information about alternative energy and the truth about extraterrestrial life.


    Everyone will be given a credit card to buy a free energy device and we will never have to pay the electric company again.


    I know this all sounds like the NESARA emails I used to get and that it's even more fantastical than the "hopium" we've been hearing from QAnon and on the X22 Report and other YouTube channels but I swear, this what someone I've known for 5 years, a retired SpecOps Marine just told me.


    Today's video by Where We Go 1 We Go All gives many details that indicate that this is, indeed The Storm.

      First off, why did he retire as a lieutenant? Second off, why would a 3-star general be briefing a lieutenant? Third, why would a 3-star general be briefing someone who is retired? Your entire story started off with a false premise which simply would not happen, except maybe in a B-grade action movie. Since it started with this falsehood, the rest of the story is just not believable either; in all actuality, this sounds as though it came directly from Q; he's been driveling about this for quite a while now. Take down of deep state, new geriatric cells in Guantanamo, thousands of arrests yada yada yada. They had Hilary dead to rights with a smoking gun and she's still walking free. Two justice systems in this world, one for them and another for us; just the way it is and always has been.

        First off I did not write the article. First people discount it right off that tells me they are closed minded people. I don't discount anything in these times we are in now. Wait and see if some or all these things happen. The Bible makes it especially clear God's ways are not man's ways. God can throw us curves all day long that we could never think up. Food for thought.

        China has had plans in place for years now, to conquer the US and colonize it. They need the infrastructure, the natural resources and due to the developing Grand Solar Minimum, they especially want the agricultural land. In fact, there is a record of their top general talking about it awhile back and saying the most viable way to do it, would be through the use of a bio-weapon.

          Have any evidence at all ?
          Or is it all in your head.
          All my life I heard about the Russian threat to invade the USA.
          Based on what ?
          The only excuse was Cuba - a direct tit for tat retaliation for the USA placing nukes with striking distance of Russia.
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_Missile_Crisis
          In response to the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of 1961 and the presence of American Jupiter ballistic missiles in Italy and Turkey, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev agreed to Cuba's request to place nuclear missiles on the island to deter a future invasion.

            Carl, why is it that you always seem to resort to being belligerent and nasty, when you post something incorrect and someone dares to point it out? As for your reaction of going on an off topic rant attacking the US, I doubt you'll find many others here, who appreciate your attitude.

              Still no actual facts. or references re China.
              Re Russia, just pointing out how the USA created the Cold War. By using threatening behaviour to provoke a response, to justify military expenditure, world wide expansionism.

            This is why China has been buying up land in parts of Africa that used to be fertile. China knows the history. They know that their country won't do so well in the GSM but some places will. All you have to do is look at history to see this. These places where the locusts are attacking are places that used to be green and fertile and have in the last couple years of so started greening again as they get more rain and snow. River and lake beds that have been dry for millennia are filling with water again. Climate works on cycles. It's happened before, and is happening again.

              Ask yourself who is selling the land - and who created the legal framework to allow your country to be bought ?
              Those same people gave loans to & started a war in Ukraine. Then flew in USA citizen Natalie Jaresko to run the economy. Then forced legislation to allow land sales to foreigners. The globalist rich are now rapidly buying up the Ukraine, bread basket of the old USSR, for peanuts.

    For your consideration as follows from Byron Searle: TURBULENCE!!!

    Posted: 20 Mar 2020 05:15 AM PDT
    1st Samuel 4:19-22
    19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas' wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her. 20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it. 21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. 22 And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.

    While I was in prayer the evening of 3/17/20, the Lord spoke the word "TURBULENCE" several times to me. That was all He said to me at that time, but I sensed that He was going to continue speaking to me about this over the next day or so.
    The following day on 3/18, while I was driving to work at 6:30 am, the Lord began speaking to me. He said these words to me, "TURBULENCE IS ROUGH. IT'S INVISIBLE AND WILL TOSS YOU TO AND FRO."
    Throughout the day at work, I kept hearing the word TURBULENCE in my spirit, and I pondered the words that the Lord had spoken to me that morning.
    When I got home from work that evening, I went straight away into prayer. After a time of prayer and seeking the Lord, I was suddenly shown a vision in three separate parts. Here is what the Lord showed me.
    PART 1
    I was taken high up into the air, and it seemed as though I was flying through the atmosphere like Superman, so fast, soaring with such tremendous speed. I saw in the far distance a very large plane. As I got closer to it, I knew it was a 747. It was so beautiful, all shiny with distinctive coloring of red, white, and blue on the tail, which resembled the American flag. This jumbo jet was so beautiful, immaculate, gleaming, shining, polished, not a speck of dirt was upon it. I saw the name of the jet written on its side in a very beautiful script. It said "Spirit of America."
    I was so taken by its beauty on the outside that I could not stop looking at it. T hen I was instantly taken inside into the plane. I began walking around among the passengers and noticed that everyone was dressed very nicely, very expensively . I then knew that I was in the first class section. The people did not have a care in the world, and were only focused on socializing and eating and drinking. I left that area and took the stairs down from the upper level and saw people in this section sitting in their seats, watching movies or eating snacks. As I moved toward the back of the plane into the economy section, people were sleeping, and some had on face masks like they might be sick.
    All of a sudden, I heard the pilot make a frantic announcement - TURBULENCE IS AHEAD!!! BE SEATED AND FASTEN YOUR SEAT-BELTS!!!"
    The people in the first class section ignored the pilot altogether and continued with their laughter and enjoying their time. The people in the second class section heard the pilot, and some of them heeded his warning and went and sat in their seats. The people in the economy section were in their seats already, but many were still asleep.
    Then suddenly, the big jet jerked and shook violently, moving wildly in the TURBULENT air!!
    The first class people were all thrown around like rag dolls, tossed to and fro (as the Lord had said to me that morning), and many were injured and killed because they failed to heed the pilot's warning.
    The second class passengers were also thrown around, but a few of them were able to grab onto the seats to keep from being injured. They were severely shaken, but still alive.
    The economy class people were shaken so strongly that they woke up, and many cried out, and they were not injured.
    PART 2
    All of a sudden, I found myself on a huge sailing vessel, a luxury liner. It was like a floating city, so big and captivatingly beautiful on the outside. I saw the ship's name on its bow, and it said, "USS Pride of America."
    I saw all of the people on board, and everyone was having the time of their lives, like one big party. They had not a care in the world. Food was plenteous, the dancing was beautiful, and all seemed to flow with the gentle rolls of the ship. I walked all around the ship and noticed a few people were wearing face masks and looking a bit green, pale, and sickly in color.
    Then suddenly, I heard the captain of the ship make an urgent announcement over the intercom. He was shouting very loudly - "BRACE FOR IMPACT!!!"
    Most people totally ignored the stern warning from the captain. Then in an instant, the ship rolled side to side so violently that many people were tossed to and fro and fell overboard and perished.
    Some people had frantically grabbed ahold of poles, stationary objects, and side rails to keep from being thrown off the ship. Things on the deck were flying around and thrown about and hit many people and injured them.
    I noticed one group of people who seemed like they were prepared for the TURBULENT waves. They had fastened themselves down with ropes, securing themselves to fixed, immovable objects.
    PART 3
    I was then suddenly whisked away to the outside of a giant building. Looking at this enormous building that was so beautiful on the outside, all shining white marble and glistening stained glass, I could not take my eyes off of it. I saw such breathtaking beauty and did not want to stop looking at it. Then I saw the name on the building. It said "ICHABOD" written across the front in big golden letters.
    I went inside the building, and there were thousands of people all holding up their hands toward heaven in worship. I went further in, but did not hear a sound, not one sound. I thought it very strange, but continued looking all around. I then saw people on the stage who were singing and playing instruments, yet again, not a sound was heard. I then looked upon the faces of all the people who were standing. I saw no joy on any of their faces, just a blank stare like they were only going through the motions of worship. I saw many people busy on their phones, some were playing games.
    But one thing suddenly caught my attention and stood out very clearly. I did not see one Bible anywhere in the building or in anyone's hands!! The people were seated as the pastor got up and started preaching, yet still no sound came out of his mouth. Everything that I was seeing take place in this beautiful building was surely an eerie sight to behold!
    Then all of a sudden, without warning, one lone man stood up from within the midst of the audience and proclaimed with a very loud voice, a voice that rang out and could be clearly heard all throughout the building - "REPENT!!! AND TURN FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS!!!"
    Then suddenly the Earth began to SHAKE VIOLENTLY, and all of the pillars of the building started to bend at the TURBULENCE of the Earth's shaking!! Everything that could shake shook violently, throwing the people to and fro and then to their knees!!
    The vision ended. Then the Lord spoke this word to me.
    My son, I AM about to cause GREAT TURBULENCE to this world!!! Those who know Me are ready. Those who do not will be SHAKEN TO THE CORE!!!
    I AM the Captain, the Lord of Hosts, and I have been SHOUTING TO BE PREPARED!!! But like many, they have ignored My warnings.
    I say unto you - THE TURBULENT TIMES ARE UPON YOU!!! ARE YOU READY???
    Many of you will ignore this vision as just a figment of a man's imagination, but I say unto you - IT'S TOO LATE!!!
    My son, I love My People, but THE TIME TO WALK IN GREAT FAITH IS NOW UPON YOU!!!
    I AM coming just as My Word says. Reach the lost now, for soon you will not be able to!!!
    Amen.
    Lord Jesus

      The Lord was speaking to me 6 months ago that the window of time for people to repent and earnestly return to him was reaching a critical point and would soon come to an end. I saw preachers on TV and in churches, etc., but no one was speaking that message. One day I got up and I realized things had changed, the window was shut. The Lord impressed upon my spirit "my country is gone". "America is gone". "My country is over".

                However, autopsies on dead smokers show the destruction of the lungs by the products of cigarette combustion. Not eg asbestos
                Maybe someone who did die of corona would have died of regular flu within weeks anyway - that seasons cull of the weak.
                Maybe this flu is just better at spreading, quicker to the punch than regular flu.
                And more lethal because we have yet to begin to develop immunity.
                Hence Gill Bates seminars were not prediction, just extrapolation.
                The background to the 1918 flu pandemic was WW1 and the mass movement of people.
                The same background we have now with the USA dropping a bomb every 12 min 24/7 running 7 consecutive wars. With military flying in and out unchecked of 140 countries (The USA military have total immunity from all local law).

    Everyone must understand. EVERYONE and everything is expendable when it comes to the survival of the federal government COG. That includes you. They will do whatever it takes to keep the control over you going. Governments are criminal organizations that are paid protection money to the people under their control. The USA was lost long ago. The entire nation went under receivership to the FED back in 1935. What controls us now is a defacto US corporation that will kill anyone who threatens their control structure. Believe that. Part of that control is the US petrodollar. Think of the millions of people (and yes, there have been millions) killed to protect the oil and petro dollar system. That is just the dollar. Think of what they would do if their survival was at stake. Folks, we are in historic times. Danger is putting it mildly. Whatever is going on behind the scenes, you can bet it is to preserve the US corporation and not necessarily you.

      Why have the people and equipment in 1000 military bases in 140 countries not been brought home ? Nice to see Trump keep up the tradition of the USA blaming someone else.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu
      To maintain morale, World War I censors minimized early reports of illness and mortality in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.......Papers were free to report the epidemic's effects in neutral Spain....gave rise to the pandemic's nickname, "Spanish flu"

        The US Military has a job to do both in CONUS and CENTCOM. The military is staged abroad for protection of both the United States of America and our allies. Should an attack occur on our allies or the United States, our military can respond faster from the boarders of said attackers than they can taking weeks or months to "march order and deploy." There are plenty of US military personnel inside CONUS to handle about anything short of a civil war.

        Because the military is a priority.

    I checked in with battle buddies and most say that bases are practicing social distancing of non-essential personal which is open source / public information based on HPCON statuses and military press releases.

    I need some additional or substantial information for verification.

      We’re at HPCON BRAVO on my post. It’s all social distancing. No one has been sent home even though we’ve got 70 self quarantined and 10 in isolation awaiting test results. They said we’ll keep working unless directed otherwise by DOD/PENTAGON. This post doesn’t seem substantiated at all. And it’s a copy of another article just reworded

    Hal, millions of Chinese, cell phone subscribers have dropped off the face of the earth. Did these people have their phones confiscated or are they dead?

      I was just thinking about all those Chinese people - how are they doing? What happened to them? We are hearing NOTHING. It is seriously disturbing.

      This is a photo I got off of Twitter a week or so after the Wuhan lockdown. It’s allegedly from one of the Wuhan crematoriums. It reminds me of the famous picture of shoes piles at WWII German concentration camps. :-(

          thanks Chris, she makes a plausible case or as she says be nice to know numbers for other 2 giant telecom there; how many would not continue to subscribe for economic reasons, especially in in forced confinement-how many cell phones do eight people in anapartment need with no work (aka ncome) on horizon? weird-she seems like a source worth tracking with

    Hal, the only part of this story I question is "all personnel confined to their bases". I have veterans in my family and they've told me only personnel with certain MOS's [military occupational specialty] can remain on a base to do their jobs but no way all personnel could be confined.

      We're veterans too. Me, 17 years in the Air Force. There were times and situations where we were all to remain on base, so it certainly can happen.
