Hardin, MT: Black Ops Takeover? (Updated)
A little town out near Billings, MT. They were railroaded into approving a huge private prison complex, but they never got any contracts. So somebody made of with lots of loot on a municipal bond issue and the city is on the verge of defaulting. Then along comes a rescue. But the rescue is shrouded in secrecy, and the rescuer is all too willing to break the law. This thing is morphing faster than any of us in Internet Land can follow.
The basic story: American Police Force is anything but American, it appears. Someone calling herself a teenage resident says the apparent head of the group speaks poor English with a strong Slavic accent. They refuse to operate in the clear, and the city cabal with them is at least as bad.
More on the story. Lots of sweetheart deals to keep the city cabal supporting the move, and to keep the citizens quiet. Check the comments section for some interesting additions.
Recent MSM report: The APF was patrolling the city for awhile with vehicles marked as police patrol cars. Someone in city government seems to have been suspended for authorizing that. Meanwhile, the comments reflect rising tensions.
I can’t pretend to know just how sinister this really is. The prison itself was a big mistake for the city. Not only were they in a bind, but it made them vulnerable. The entire prison industry in the US is the other half of the War on Drugs, two sides of a deal which never had anything to do with the very real threat of substance abuse, but with making billions by milking the fears of taxpayers. Hardin was suckered into that mess, and now Satan has a castle on their lawn, so to speak. When some black ops arms dealer comes along with sweet promises, they jump on it. I’m sure the townfolk are at least somewhat divided over this whole mess. Obviously neither they, nor we as outsiders watching, can see the whole picture.
APF has already proved themselves lawless. They are at least as dangerous to citizens and rights as Xe (AKA Blackwater), reflecting the elitist Brownshirt mentality. That sort of folks are why Nazi Germany was not the first, nor the last horrific swamp of human evil to foul the face of the earth. Call it a Godwin if you like, but history is loaded with other, less famous examples. Mr. Prince and his ilk are more like the movie depictions of the Antichrist — people who take advantage of spiritual ignorance, a complete misunderstanding of Christ and His mission, and convince folks Satan’s plans are God’s.
By no means should we speculate this is somehow a symbolic anchor point for martial law. We are already part way under martial law, as it has been slowly drifting across the sky for some decades. If this APF fiasco were happening in other places I’ve lived, there would have already been bloodshed. At the very least, some enterprising patriot types would have been sniping the thugs, and perhaps the cabal in Hardin’s municipal government, too. If somewhere along this insane path, someone from APF gets trigger happy, we’ll know just how awful it can be. The real story is just how likely it is your municipal government, or mine, will sell us out for their own personal benefit. People who want power over others cannot ever be called good or decent, and God forbid we ever get stupid enough to call them honest.
Satan is roaming to and fro, seeking whom he may devour. He is a toothless old lion, roaring to scare folks into laying down so he can simply swallow them whole.
Update (01 October 2009): It appears the whole thing will collapse on the identity of the man running APF, Michael Hilton. He has a large number of aliases, along with a very long criminal and civil record of frauds of all kinds. Since he has yet to satisfy some $1 million dollars in judgments against him, we can assume this whole thing will go nowhere unless he finds or has found a really big sugar daddy somewhere.
