At the scheduled Wednesday coronavirus briefing, President Donald Trump and other officials in his administration opened by addressing a seemingly unrelated topic: a new campaign against drug cartels.

They said traffickers planned to take advantage of the global COVID-19 crisis.

“As governments and nations focus on the coronavirus, there’s a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain,” Trump said. “We must not let that happen.”
It was prompted by intelligence indicating drug cartels “were going to try to take advantage of the situation and try to infiltrate additional drugs into our country,” said Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“We are at war with COVID-19, we are at war with terrorists, and we are war with the drug cartels,” Milley said. “You will not penetrate this country.”

[...]


As I watch the military officials speak, my instincts were telling me this is a cover story to placate the masses. All of the speakers just seemed a little too tense, and I find myself wondering what might be going on behind the scenes.
Maybe I've been reading too much doom porn lately, or maybe like so many others I sense something much deeper and darker lurking behind public knowledge.

Any ideas? Business as usual, or unusual threat?

Yeah, that whole "war on drugs" presser was just a BS distraction. Propaganda.

Dude can't have rallies and spill his BS all over the place, so now he has a different kind of podium, during a crisis, to spill his BS.

And the usual brown-nosing:

"Thank you for your leadership" — Esper

"Thank you for your leadership" — The Military Dude

"Thank you for your leadership" — The DOJ Dude, Barr.

I get that you don't like the POTUS, but he can't magically call the military up for no good reason. Watch the video on the site; they were all tense and behind the President.
Something very serious is going on, no matter how bad you think 'orange man' is .

Couldn't we just talk about what's coming down the pike, and not wich political partie is best/worst?

Yeah, a lot of people are getting and going to get sick.

That has nothing to do with walls or drugs coming in.

Like I said, propaganda.

Like the Covid. But they chose to talk some BS about narcotics instead.

Like I said, propaganda.

Where were the Doctors?

You see nothing unusual with military involvement? Okay.

I'm pretty good at reading people, and I couldn't help but sense a serious threat that has nothing to do with fighting drugs or a virus. I think it's quite possible there is a serious, credible threat.

It isn't so much what was said, it was more what wasn't said. I'm not buying their 'war on drugs' line one bit.

Was wondering too, there is something much bigger going on. This presser was all too military brass and top attorney all looking tense behind the President.

I have always said since this whole lock down started that there is something else besides a virus.

Seasonal Flu being diagnosed as Corona virus

Chinese weapon spread into the United States and allies than sneak attack while we are disabled.

Comet in bound to hit the sun or cause much stress on the world

A lot of earth quakes starting around

It’s something more than a virus.

Did you watch the video? I'm pretty good at 'reading' people- and they all seemed like they were ready to do battle.

But you're right; it could just as easily be exactly what they say it is.

Oh there is reason. Trump is going to do what should have been done decades ago. He is going to have the US military take on the Cartels.

They will soon be cut off by land, air, and sea.

About Damned Time.

I don't know much about military placement, or how they would be deployed if there was a serious threat against the US, but it just seemed odd and got me wondering.

(We felt the quake. )

Combined with the DOJ wanting to indefinitely detain people, this is how Authoritarianism takes hold and exploits a situation.

So we're sending our military into sovereign nations to fight cartels?

Maybe they are expecting serious retaliation, and that's where the heightened sense of tension came from. I don't know much about South American armies, or who backs them, but I got a 'Bay of Pigs' feeling. ( Yes, I'm old enough to remember...

It's a distraction against their failed COvid response, early on.

The MO of this administration is to change the public narrative/chase the newest shiny thing. It's what they have always done.

And as things get worse, they attempt to shift the narrative.

I watched it live.

It's theater. Show.

For ratings.
