Are You Ready For Their Dark Winter?

by William Skink

I listened to a portion of the debate last night and what I heard was a coded threat issued by Joe Biden.

“We’re about to enter a DARK WINTER, a DARK WINTER…” Biden said, repeating the term seemingly for emphasis.

For those who have been paying attention to the phenomenal work of people like Whitney Webb, Derick Broze and Ryan Christian, then your ears perked up like mine did when Biden made his statement.

Operation Dark Winter went down nearly two decades ago. I’ll use wikipedia for the baseline description:

Dark Winter’s simulated scenario involved an initial localized smallpox attack on Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with additional smallpox attack cases in Georgia and Pennsylvania. The simulation was then designed to spiral out of control. This would create a contingency in which the National Security Council struggles to determine both the origin of the attack as well as deal with containing the spreading virus. By not being able to keep pace with the disease’s rate of spread, a new catastrophic contingency emerges in which massive civilian casualties would overwhelm America’s emergency response capabilities.

The disastrous contingencies that would result in the massive loss of civilian life were used to exploit the weaknesses of the U.S. health care infrastructure and its inability to handle such a threat. The contingencies were also meant to address the widespread panic that would emerge and which would result in mass social breakdown and mob violence. Exploits would also include the many difficulties that the media would face when providing American citizens with the necessary information regarding safety procedures.

Kind of weird how they study our vulnerabilities and weaknesses, yet do nothing to fix them, isn’t it.

Because of her research, Whitney Webb recently spoke about her concerns that a bioterrorism attack is in the works, and will be blamed on some white supremacist group. A few days after she said this, the Michigan plot to kidnap the Governor was allegedly foiled by the FBI. I say “allegedly” because the pattern to these high-profile busts goes something like this:

During the Obama era, the FBI built up something of a reputation: the Bureau would publicize its foiling of ambitious, frightening terror plots hatched by young, often poor Muslim men thanks to its use of paid informants and undercover agents. It would receive kudos for stopping the conspiracies, while reminding the public about the ever-present threat of terrorism in their lives. And, inevitably, details would emerge that the plot could never have come to fruition, or in some cases even be hatched in the first place, without FBI personnel guiding, cajoling, and supplying the alleged terrorists every step of the way.

This quote comes from Jacobin, a leftist publication that exhibits something America needs more of: a historical memory. Here is more from the piece:

According to the FBI’s affidavit, the bureau made heavy use of informants and undercover agents in the case. At least four took part — specifically, two informants and two undercover agents, on whose evidence gathering the criminal complaint was based on — though it’s implied that some unspecific number of additional personnel were involved.

And, as with earlier, Muslim-targeting cases, the FBI appears to have been integral to the plotters’ ability to carry out the scheme. The affidavit notes that an undercover agent told the ringleader it would cost $4,000 to procure explosives. Four of the accused planned to meet with another undercover agent posing as an explosives expert to pay for them and, they were told, to get some excess tactical gear the agent had the day they were arrested. In court, Richard Trask, the agent who authored the affidavit, said he didn’t know how much money the defendants had on them when they were put in handcuffs, aside from the $275 held by Adam Fox, pegged by Trask as the ringleader.

Even the profile of Fox is not unlike those of earlier targets like Shareef and Hester. Fox was reportedly struggling with money and had been on the brink of homelessness after his girlfriend kicked him out of her house, before being taken in by his friend and employer, who let him stay temporarily in the basement of his vacuum store. It was there in that cramped storage space, cluttered with boxes and spare vacuum parts, where Fox was living with his two dogs and meager possessions, that he at one point held a meeting to allegedly plan out the kidnapping. (We shouldn’t be too quick to assume this applies to all of the accused, however — one has been described by his lawyer as from a decent family and with a good job making $28 an hour).

How many people reacting to this story are aware of any of this context? Not nearly enough, I’d say, and that’s by design.

We are in a very dangerous period of time right now. Things we take for granted–like the availability of food and energy–could be compromised and weaponized against us. Do what you can to prepare. These psychopaths are capable of anything.
