(INTELLIHUB) — I have written several times on Intellihub about being watchlisted and have noted that there are different types of watchlits, and that being placed on one watchlist does not necessarily mean that you are placed on a second or third.

As I have previously mentioned, the Deep State, which includes but is not limited to the alphabet soup agencies, is doing a huge business with private security companies owned by retired federal employees who once worked for the DHS, DEA, FBI, DoD, etc. The federal government outsources the work in schemes which amount to “security cronyism.”

If someone is what many people on the street level refer to as a “Targeted Individual” or a victim of “Gang Stalking,” they are really targets of Stasi-styled Zersetzung operations and do not meet the lowest standard of a real “Domestic Threat, Threat to National Security, or Domestic Terrorist.”

In the name of security cronyism — the National Security Racketeering Network is exerting incrementally increasing control over certain free-thinking members of the population. The people in this tier of “watchlisting” are the targets of a classified operation formed by the FBI, which parallels what the Stasi set up in East Germany.

According to Alex Jones’ InfoWars.com website:

The FBI initiative – the latest manifestation of the “see something, say something” surveillance matrix – further engenders a government informant culture that shares a parallel with East Germany’s “Inoffizieller Mitarbeiter” or informal collaborator culture.

[…]

In addition to “designated foreign terrorist organizations,” the FBI program targets “domestic violent extremism movements,” including anti-government groups.

In many cases it appears as though information on these targets are funneled to regional data fusion centers for localized targeting and are often tasked by private security contractors. The private companies working hand-in-hand with the FBI and DHS, employ civilians, including illegal and legal immigrants, ex-cons, criminals, neighbors and owners/employees of local commercial establishments.

However this lower-tiered watchlist of sorts may not preclude the targeted individual(s) from flying. The people on the No Fly watchlist are targeted through a star chamber decision-making process.

As per the Department of Homeland Security website:

The terrorist watchlist is maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC), which is administered by the FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, in cooperation with the departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State and Treasury, and the Central Intelligence Agency. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies nominate individuals for the watchlist based on established criteria.

The DHS website further states that:

Two subsets of the terrorist watchlist are the “No Fly” list and “Selectee” list:

The “No Fly” list includes individuals who are prohibited from boarding an aircraft. You are NOT on the No Fly list if you receive a boarding pass.

The “Selectee” list includes individuals who must undergo additional security screening before being permitted to board an aircraft.

So in this case we can see that this watchlist is broken down into a “No Fly” group and a “Flight allowed after additional screening” group.”

In my opinion, the individuals who are labeled potential political subversives and domestic threats; those who often refer to themselves as targeted individuals and victims of gang stalking, are part of the security cronyism program (a.k.a. “National Security Racketeering Network”), which is a target-for-profit psychological operation.

In the dark corridors of the Deep State, the names of the targeted individuals probably never reach the desk of the decision-makers working within the star chambers.

This Stasi-styled, nationwide PSYOP is designed solely to fill the coffers of private security companies while simultaneously exerting control over both “Inoffizieller Mitarbeiter” and the targets themselves. Ironically the informal collaborators and Perpetrators (“Perps”) are often financially compensated and are under as much control of the National Security Racketeering Network as the targets themselves.

On the other hand, people on the “No Fly” list and the “additional screening list” have been targeted within some type framework vetted by those inside the star chambers, while targeted individuals in many cases would not meet the minimum standard for either the “No Fly” list and the “additional screening list.”

Furthermore, the individuals who have passed through the star chamber process are most likely tasked solely by federal agencies and may not be subject to street-level targeting by the private security companies engaged in security cronyism.

Individuals targeted by the Deep State and tasked by private security companies are subject to hard-core extra-judicial punishment and intentionally traumatized. This operation is classified and operates outside the bounds of the law.

The official terrorist screening operations as described on the DHS website, while also classified, have a sound foundation. What do I mean by this? If implemented legally and judiciously, the program could serve to act as a security mechanism for our country and bona fide travelers.

However in both scenarios it is almost impossible to discover if you are on a list. The first group (targeted individuals) stands no chance, since they have been targeted by a highly illegal COINTEL program which runs counter to the Nuremberg Code. The latter group (No Fly and Extra-screening) stands a better (albeit slim) chance of rectifying their status, since at least some aspects of the program are legally sanctioned.

Since the COINTEL Program was revealed in the 1970’s by the Church Committee and declared to be highly illegal, it is most likely that the present Stasi-styled operations being launched against “potential” domestic threats who are allowed to fly, actually has a higher classification rating than the terrorist screening operations.

The DHS website states:

The U.S. government does not reveal whether a particular person is on or not on a watchlist. If the government revealed this information, terrorist organizations would be able to circumvent the watchlists purpose by determining in advance which of their members were likely to be questioned or detained.

That means tin the future that bona fide threats may have a better chance to change their status under some type of discovery process while Americans who have fallen victim to the illegal National Security Racketeering Network’s COINTEL Program still have an uphill battle.

Final note: Since these operations are classified, they cannot not be analyzed with one hundred percent certainty. All one can do is take the available open source information and paint a picture with the “non-classified” colors on the pallet. As more data leaks out to the public regarding all of these operations we will be able to paint more detailed pictures with a higher level of certainty.
