Charlottesville reeks false flag
Virginia declares state of emergency before Charlottesville rally 1 year anniversary
8/8/18
For Immediate Release: August 8, 2018
Governor Northam and City of Charlottesville Declare States of Emergency for August 10–12 Planned Events
Action authorizes local and state resources to pre-stage and coordinate response to keep the peace
RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam and the City of Charlottesville today declared states of emergency for the Commonwealth and the city to address the potential impacts of events in and around the City of Charlottesville and outside of Washington, D.C., on August 10–12, 2018.
Multiple events are planned to mark the anniversary of the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in the deaths of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, and Virginia State Police Troopers Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, III and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates.
These state of emergency declarations will enhance planning and cooperative response efforts in development since March. A state of emergency is an administrative tool that allows state agencies to perform actions outside the scope of normal operations in order to ensure that all necessary resources and assistance are provided as quickly as possible to local governments, and Virginia’s residents.....

The Commonwealth state of emergency declaration mobilizes and funds state resources from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Health, Virginia National Guard, and other state agencies that will be deployed to Charlottesville and Northern Virginia. It further activates the Virginia Emergency Operations Center to coordinate state resources. Finally, it allocates $2 million to pay for this response and authorizes the Virginia National Guard to assign forces to assist in security efforts[...].

SIMULATION EXERCISES
EXERCISE OBJECTIVES
Through a comprehensive evaluation process, the exercise will assess prevention and protection
capabilities both nationally and regionally. Although NLE 09 is still in the planning stages, the
exercise is currently designed to validate the following capabilities:

VALIDATING HOMELAND SECURITY SYSTEM
Exercises such as NLE 09 are an important component of national preparedness, helping to build an
integrated federal, state, tribal, local and private sector capability to prevent terrorist attacks, and
rapidly and effectively respond to, and recover from, any terrorist attack or major disaster that occur
The full-scale exercise offers agencies and jurisdictions a way to test their plans and skills in a real-
time, realistic environment and to gain the in-depth knowledge that only experience can provide.
Participants will exercise prevention and information sharing functions that are critical to preventing
terrorist attacks. Lessons learned from the exercise will provide valuable insights to guide future
planning for securing the nation against terrorist attacks, disasters, and other emergencies.

National Level Exercise 1009
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work
together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to,
recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

National Level Exercise 1009 Fact Sheet
https://www.fema.gov/txt/media/factsheets/2009/ncp_nle.txt
National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the U.S. government to focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.

NLE 09 is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise. Tier I exercises (formerly known as the
Top Officials exercise series or TOPOFF) are conducted annually in accordance with the National
Exercise Program (NEP), which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning,
organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises. The NEP was established to provide
the U.S. government, at all levels, exercise opportunities to prepare for catastrophic crises ranging
from terrorism to natural disasters.

NLE 09, as other Tier I exercises, is a White House directed, Congressionally- mandated
exercise that includes the participation of all appropriate federal department and agency senior
officials, their deputies, staff and key operational elements. In addition, broad regional participation
of state, tribal, local, private sector and international organizations are anticipated.

EXERCISE FOCUS
NLE 09 will focus on intelligence and information sharing among intelligence and law enforcement
communities, and between international, federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector
participants.

The NLE 09 scenario will begin in the aftermath of a notional terrorist event outside of the United
States, and exercise play will center on preventing subsequent efforts by the terrorists to enter the
United States and carry out additional attacks. This scenario enables participating senior officials to
focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical
infrastructure.

NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no
requirement for response or recovery activities.

NLE 09 will be an operations-based exercise to include: activities taking place at command posts,
emergency operation centers, intelligence centers and potential field locations to include federal
headquarters facilities in the Washington D.C. area, and in federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector facilities

Infowar samples
This shit by WIRED, a Conde Nast publication, is posted because its one of the slickest, most popular ‘tech’ reads that started openly playing its ‘patriotic limited hangout’ role: cut through the absurd “quest to count white nationalists” and find the State’s narrative myth: if fascists can’t be defined, seen and quantified, capitalism’s white supremacist/american exceptionalist/ nature and history disappear as Wired says, “All lies that tell the truth: the open racism we all saw at Charlottesville is slowly being pushed underground”.

HOW BIG IS THE ALT RIGHT? INSIDE MY FUTILE QUEST TO COUNT
This weekend the second annual Unite the Right rally will be the best chance to gauge the scale of a group with unknown—much discussed—strength.
8/10/18 https://www.wired.com/story/unite-the-right-charlottesville-alt-right-in...
HOW MANY WHITE nationalists live in the United States? It’s a question I’ve been trying to answer on and off for years. In particular, I’ve tried to quantify the group’s web-based wing —the slippery, meme-slinging trolls who call themselves the alt-right. I’ve worked a lot of angles: totaling the populations of subreddits, counting up the unique visitors to various websites, comparing the number of times Twitter users invoked alt-right hashtags to the times they had more wholesome things to tweet about. (For the record, #dogs beat out #cuck and #whitegenocide every time.) I have squinted at blurry aerial photos of far-right rallies, trying to separate protestor from counterprotester.
None of this produced satisfying answers.
But as we approach anniversary of Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that introduced the altright group to the national conversation, that led to the death of anti-racist counterprotester Heather Heyer, it’s again become a question worth asking.
This weekend, Washington, DC, will host the second Unite the Right rally in protest of alleged abuses suffered by far-right activists in Charlottesville. but in reality a public exhibition of the state of the movement.
It’s important we gain a sense of this group’s scale. So much of the alt-right movement takes place online, where a handful of aggressive netizens can have the impact of an army. The alt-right has been been consistently successful in drumming up media attention for its online activity, so when they venture off the web to protests like the Unite the Right rally, it’s easy to project online might onto whatever crowd gathers. But numerically, those offline crowds have been small, so when it comes to voting and purposeful activism—the kind that transform a group of heinous trolls into a political movement, capable of inserting their ideology into laws and elected officials—real-life size matters.And so I began to count.
Alt-Right Ambiguity
When trying to quantify the members of a movement, the first question is: Who counts? Where the alt-right is concerned, there is no easy answer. So I sat down with a piece of paper and tried to diagram it out. The alt-right includes white supremacists, white nationalists (basically, white supremacists who think white people deserve their own country), neo-Nazis, neo-Confederates, neo-reactionaries (who are anti-democracy), neo-fascists, nativists, men’s rights activists and anti-feminists, fundamentalist Christians, nativists and Islamophobes, homophobes, Holocaust deniers and other anti-Semites...the list goes on. But identifying with the alt-right doesn’t necessarily mean you identify with any of those groups, and vice versa. And within the alt-right, there are micro-communities like the alt-lite (who love trolling and hate being called racist). So my diagram—which was starting to look like a Final Fantasy bracket from hell—wasn’t very useful.
I needed a new way to capture what made the alt-right the alt-right, and it couldn’t be these fuzzy ideologies. “These are the same ideas the extremist right has been kicking around for the last 150 years or so,” says Phyllis Gerstenfeld, who teaches courses on online hate crimes and criminology at Cal State Stanislaus. “It’s the methodology that’s changed.” A few decades ago, extremists had to rely on IRL word of mouth to spread their ideas, and some incumbent extremist groups (like militias or the KKK) often still do. Maybe I could get some sense of the alt-right’s scale from measuring their twist on the far-right recruitment strategy: digital savvy.
But the dynamics of the internet make traffic data, tweet impressions, and subscriber counts meaningless. The alt-right has been on the receiving end of a years-long signal boost, even as the media—myself included—struggle to figure out how to cover the activities of these groups without amplifying their message. Yet traffic metrics don’t differentiate between the die-hards, the joiners, the hate-readers, and lurkers like me. Tweets might be coming from bots, or a single human helming dozens of accounts, or a small coordinated group of humans who may or may not be tweeting in earnest. And in our polarized digital culture, all hashtag campaigns are destined to be co-opted by the opposite side, for mockery purposes.
Traffic metrics don’t differentiate between the die-hards, the joiners, the hate-readers, and lurkers like me.
Some researchers overcome these opaque numbers by turning to an unlikely group: anti-fascists, whose databases are brimming with names they’ve hacked or tricked out of white nationalists But that’s hardly a representative (or neutral and unbiased) sample. Back in the day, KKK-style self-reported memberships allowed researchers to roughly track these groups as they would with a voting roll, but today those lists are as outmoded as David Duke. These days, groups form loosely organized local chapters, or stick to private servers: much harder to track, and much harder to quantify. According to Gerstenfeld, your best chance of a solid estimate would be to take a random survey of a representative sample of people and hope they answer your questions honestly. Which is basically setting yourself up to get trolled. Your best chance at a meaningful sense of scale is at rallies. Meaningful, but not conclusive: Real life gatherings tend to draw out more paramilitary types than meme lords, and because these rallies often turn into riots, crowd estimates are hard to come by. Still, the point of protest is to show your numbers to the world, a kind of head count of those you can count on to support a movement in the open air. In Charlottesville, the best estimates put rally participant numbers between 500 and 600 people. For context, that’s five times as big as any far-right rally in the last decade, but is still only a tiny fraction of what you’d expect from their (inflated) digital footprint. It’s two hundred times smaller than (democrat sponsored) 2017 March for Science and a thousand times smaller than 2017 Women’s March. All signs point to an even lower turnout for Unite the Right in DC. So what’s going on here? Well, there’s little indication Charlottesville helped recruitment. At least two major organizer groups in the original rally no longer exist... Vanguard America, and the Traditionalist Workers Party collapsed...
The DC Unite the Right rally is shaping up to be a public announcement of a new, more cautious alt-right zeitgeist. The organizer, Jason Kessler—according to Hanke now something of a pariah— banned swastikas and other symbols of white supremacy that so many objected to at the last rally. Kessler is trying to massage the movement into something (somewhat) more palatable, similar to the surviving organizations Identity Evropa and Patriot Front. Identity Evropa claims to protect cultural heritage, Patriot Front claims their prejudice is patriotism, and Kessler claims to be a civil rights advocate for white people.

Charlottesville, demographic change, and misplaced white anxiety
https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/08/03/charlottesville-dem...
8/3/18 William H. Frey Senior Fellow
On August 12, 2017, a group of white nationalists, spurred on in part by the combative racial rhetoric of President Trump, descended on Charlottesville, Va. Less than one year later, for the first time in its history, the country’s white population declined in size These two settings are not unrelated; it is no surprise to the country’s current political or sociological realities that one followed the other.
Many white supporters of President Trump will view this population development as yet another sign of the end of the America they know, as the country inches toward majority-nonwhite status. To them, this means relinquishing dominance and privileged status to browner and newer Americans, who they perceive as competing with them for jobs and government resources, while distorting their way of life. This “white anxiety fueled the appalling actions in Charlottesville that resulted in the death of Heather Heyer and underlies many proposals from Trump, such as the Mexican border wall and Muslim ban, along with his derogatory statements against immigrants and political correctness—all to display a pushback against demographic change....
Yet the long term national damage from the decades-long white population loss that is almost certain to occur is the negative impact on our economy that will emanate from the politics of white anxiety—politics that will lead to a disinvestment in our growing young minority populations who are essential to our prosperity....As more older whites retire, racial minorities will comprise all of the growth in our working-age population. From a demographic standpoint, the infusion of youthful minorities, from both immigration and births, is a windfall which will save us from the kinds of labor force losses Japan and several European countries are now experiencing
However, this demographic windfall will not bear fruit unless we make educational and other investments in today’s multicultural youth....many come from families that are struggling with high poverty levels making it difficult to arrange family leave, childcare, and other support. Major public interventions are necessary to improve the educational outcomes and well-being of future generations.
Yet expanding such interventions is not likely in the current political environment where the older whiter population holds considerable voting heft and is most strongly on board with a Trump agenda that hardly places a priority on the well-being of immigrant and minority children. Ironically, it is the older white population that would benefit handsomely from investments in the labor force skills of younger minorities—by way of the latter’s contribution to Social Security and Medicare. Due to the aging of baby boomers, those of retirement age are the only part of the white population that will show substantial gains (32 percent) over the next 15 years. In so doing, they will contribute mightily to record levels of age dependency in the U.S., relying on younger, racially diverse generations to contribute adequately to the safety net programs that they will depend on...This gap began well before Trump, as the older white generation has been less likely than minorities or younger whites to see the nation’s growing diversity in a positive light. A 2012 Pew survey showed that more than half of white baby boomers and seniors believed that increasing numbers of newcomers from other countries represented a threat to traditional American values... Not surprisingly whites over the age of 45 were the strongest supporters  of Trump in the 2016 election.
This gap in attitudes is unfortunate because it is counterproductive for older whites to view today’s growing racially diverse America as a threat to them or the nation. The demographics make plain that they have a co-dependent relationship with today’s younger, majority-minority generations. As a consequence, they and everyone else will need to count on growing young minorities—Latinos, blacks, Asian Americans and other groups—to be primary contributors to the labor force, tax base, and consumer base in decades to come. White anxiety should be redirected toward ensuring that the next generation of Americans—of all skin colors—have everything they need to be successful and, in the process, are well-equipped to keep America great. When that happens, the scenes we witnessed last year in Charlottesville will be a momentary moral disgrace rather than a common unfortunate occurrence.
