    *EDITOR’S NOTE: The ruling class will stop at nothing to stay in power. They must know that people are starting to figure out they don’t need masters to control any aspect of their lives. They will increase their protection from the masses, as we wake up to the truth that freedom is our birthright and government is slavery.

    In response to the January 6 Capitol riot, US Capitol Police will begin employing military surveillance equipment used by the Army in what the Washington Times described as part of “sweeping security upgrades” as the force transforms into “an intelligence-based protective agency.”

    Upgrades will include eight ‘Persistent Surveillance Systems Ground – Medium’ (PSSG-M) units, which provide HD surveillance video and includes night vision. According to the Pentagon, it does not include facial recognition.

    “This technology will be integrated with existing USCP camera infrastructure, providing greater high definition surveillance capacity to meet steady-state mission requirements and help identify emerging threats,” said the Pentagon.

    The technology allowed U.S. troops fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to monitor large areas 24/7 through extremely high-resolution cameras.

    Some privacy rights advocates have raised concern that Capitol Police are getting into the business of spying on Americans.

    In a wartime application, the persistent surveillance units were mounted on tethered blimps. The data could be stored, combined with sensor data from other platforms, and later referenced or rewound to track individuals or groups.

    The military could use the system to develop “pattern of life” analyses on suspected enemy combatants or intelligence targets in war zones. It could determine, for example, who was responsible for placing an improvised explosive device. –Washington Times

    According to a 2016 Government Accountability Office report, the Department of Homeland Security leased the same, or similar technology through the Department of Defense.

    Few details were provided to the Times about the new system – such as how and where it will be deployed, or whether collected data will be stored or disseminated – or whether it will be shared with other agencies.

    “Hopefully, you can understand it wouldn’t be smart of us tell the world all our capabilities,” a Capitol Police official told the Times.

    The Pentagon says the Army will install the units and provide training to the Capitol Police to operate and maintain the system. Once installed, the Army won’t have any role in the operation.

      1. The global fight to preserve human civilisation is on. From the BLM riots to the daily and nightly violence in black communities to countries like South Africa (currently going up in flames from rioting and looting), civilisation is under attack by the mob.

        It was always going to be this way when the decision was taken to move the third world to the first world to make it the third world.

        Surveillance technology is the only way to preserve life if you want to create a society with no common values or community.

      2. PGSS…wasn’t that the blimp based surveillance system? They were already deployed over this area 7 or 8 years ago weren’t they?

        IIRC SHTFplan even did a post about them back then. Nothing like using a current event to announce a technology already being used to make it more acceptable to the public.

        No crisis should go to waste.

      3. Trump’s biggest mistake was January 6th, it’s given the totalitarian forces in the Federal government, on every level, the right to do anything they want by using it as an excuse.

        And it most certainly won’t be limited to D.C and other federal areas and jurisdictions, it will expand to everywhere.

      4. Things are falling apart everywhere in the world as the US empire collapses and retreats. What we will see replace it is this: contract soldiers and private security combined with China business.

        Look to South Africa, Haiti, Afghanistan and Cuba to see how this takes shape over the next year.

        Much money to be made: stay tuned!

      5. The globalists are paranoid.
