The Joint Analytic Real-time Virtual Information Sharing System - JARVISS - is the Army's solution for quickly sharing unclassified threat information across the Army. JARVISS is based in a cloud environment and works to integrate complex, open source and commercial data into pieces of information for the Army to both share and report.
In copies of emails obtained in July 2018 from a public records requests, Thomas Rudd confirmed that the JBLM Force Protection Division is actively using the JARVISS system track political activists. In an email reply from Daniel Vessels, also part of the JBLM Force Protection Division, we learned that the names of Antifa activists and others who protest against government actions - such as protesting ICE - are being entered into the 'Domestic Terrorism Index', a database created by JBLM (at that time Fort Lewis) in 2007, and now contained in JARVISS

More about the Domestic Terrorism Index can be found in this 2014 article.

The JBLM Force Protection Division is gathering information about political activities in Washington and Oregon and listing anyone who opposes the Trump Administration or who protests against current government policy as a domestic terrorist. False arrests and detentions, attacks on homes and friendships, and labeling anyone they disagree with as a terrorist is nothing new for JBLM. With JARVISS they can collect information about our political and social activities - creating secret government files about us because of our beliefs and our 1st Amendment protected activities.

JARVISS is a protest suppressing tool, a 1st Amendment killing tool. Do your research to learn more about JARVISS and how this tool is being used to infringe upon your civil rights and freedoms.

The Red 'X' Society

Along with the above, do not forget that their first line of data collection on Citizen's public activities are being by local media and newspapers.

If you are one to frequently voice your concerns at public meetings, city council gatherings, write letters to the editor, or call your local TV stations; your information is being passed along.

There is a very specific reason for encouraging the ideals of a free press being the last bastion of sanctuary for those who find life unfair. They have control of the press to put out their own fires. Leaked info, discovered corruption, disgruntled employee or whistle blower. They are protecting their Criminal Enterprises in the furtherance of injustice to the People.

They want you to tattle for justice, when in fact, they are the hands and fingers of injustice.

This is why I am so sickened by their smugness when promoting their news departments, saying things like, "We are the Most Trusted!" and "We will hold on to that Trust."

The Media has been fashioned into a Sugar Coated Death Nap for America.

Please read up on how such systems as the STASI operated. This is how security forces have handled political opposition since the Roman Empire if not forever.

STASI - on Wikipedia

The STASI was a heavily intertwined network of East German Security operatives that "Disbanded" in 1991. Where do you think they immigrated to after the fall of the U.S.S.R. Also see: Operation Paperclip, I have a feeling that Operation Paperclip is also related to many of the operatives coming out of the Sacramento, CA, South Lake Tahoe-Reno Areas.

I have documented at least 4 out of the Tahoe Basin an 2 persons out of Reno, NV, which I met before residing in Sacramento since the end of 1987.

The Law Says JBLM Cannot Do This. JBLM Says F*uk Off. 09.Aug.2018 18:38

Mr. Johnson

U.S. law makes clear that the government cannot keep surveillance records on a person or group because of their political views or the way that they express their First Amendment rights. The Privacy Act's protection for free expression was written out of fear of on-the-ground surveillance of protestors, but the modern law enforcement practice of searching the Internet for an individual's entire online presence is far more invasive. Collecting and then keeping historic records of speech chills the ability of people and organizations to use the Internet as a platform for the open exchange of ideas.

The JBLM Force Protection Division is keeping massive files and databases on individuals because of the way that they express their First Amendment rights. JARVISS is just one more tool that allows them to violate our rights and distribute their lies - calling us "domestic terrorists" for protesting government misconduct.

A permanent emergency: Trump becomes third president to renew extraordinary post-9/11 powers

Gregory Korte, USA TODAY Published 6:00 a.m. ET Sept. 14, 2017 | Updated 12:18 p.m. ET Sept. 14, 2017

WASHINGTON President Trump has become the third president to renew a post-9/11 emergency proclamation, stretching what was supposed to be a temporary state of national emergency after the 2001 terror attacks into its 17th year.

But the ongoing effects of that perpetual emergency aren't immediately clear, because the executive branch has ignored a law requiring it to report to Congress every six months on how much the president has spent under those extraordinary powers, USA TODAY has found.

Exactly 16 years ago Thursday, President Bush signed Proclamation 7463, giving himself sweeping powers to mobilize the military in the days following terrorist attacks that crashed planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. It allowed him to call up National Guard and Reserve troops, hire and fire military officers, and bypass limits on the numbers of generals that could serve.

Presidents Bush and Obama renewed that emergency each year. And on Wednesday, Trump published a now-routine notice in the Federal Register extending the emergency for the 16th time, explaining simply that "the terrorist threat continues."

But as Trump extends the emergency into a third presidential administration, legal experts say a review of those powers is long overdue.

"The president is given these emergency powers as a temporary measure until Congress has time to act. It stretches credulity to think Congress hasn't had time to act since 9/11 happened," said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan Center for Justice. "We should not be treating 9/11 as an emergency in 2017."

The perpetual war footing has had a striking lack of examination. Under the National Emergencies Act a post-Watergate law intended to rein in presidential emergency powers the president needs to renew the emergency each year or it lapses. But Congress is also supposed to review each emergency every six months. It never has.
