1/1/14 New Year 'Contingency Operations'

NB: The US global war against working class and oppressed peoples and nations aims to disrupt and/or destroy resistance ("terrorism") to US imperialist led terror, 'war' and occupation. Under false pretexts, ("islamists", 'al-qaeda'), tearing apart sovereign nations, creating 'ethnic strife' and hundreds of millions homeless refugees, and using 'humanitarian aid' to tighten its domination grip. This is 'national security', the only way US finance capital can secure its rule from anti-imperialist-zionist revolution.The fascist 'homeland' systematically, systemically targets working and oppressed peoples' revolutionary potential, degrading them into dependent, vulnerable wards of the state:

Medicaid takes on broader health-care role
http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/with-new-year-medi...
Medicaid embarks on a massive transformation Wednesday — from a safety-net program for the most vulnerable to a broad-based one at the front lines of the continuing political and ideological battle over the Affordable Care Act. Already the nation’s largest health-care program, Medicaid is being expanded and reshaped by the ACA to cover a wider array of people... including many unemployed who consider themselves middle class...Twenty-five states and the District expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. In many of those places, the program will be open to any whose income is below 138 percent of the poverty level — individuals making less than $15,856 a year, or a family of four earning under $32,499 in 2013 dollars...
Medicaid now covers about 16 percent of the U.S. population...

Within one day of each other, two violent incidents rocked the area around the U.S. Capitol in D.C., raising more questions, if not awareness, about the stigma surrounding mental illness and the African-American community... Sophie Clark, executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one of the nation’s largest non-profit mental health organizations in Southeast Wa. said one out of four adults living in the U.S., and one out of 10 children struggle with mental health issues. At least 10,000 District of Columbia residents suffer from mental health issues. “The stigma surrounding mental health issues affect everyone, but it has a greater impact in communities of color,” she said...
U.S. Rep. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.), said...“We know untreated or undiagnosed serious mental illness has been a factor in a number of recent tragedies. We must invest in the early identification of mental illness and treatment programs... remember 95 percent of individuals living with mental illness are not violent. They are far more likely to be victims than perpetrators. We must do more to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.”

*DARPA “Toward Narrative Disruptors and Inductors: Mapping the Narrative Comprehension Network and its Persuasive Effects”
2012 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) awarded the Center for Strategic Communication (CSC) at Arizona State University a $6.1 million 'narrative theory' research grant
to “study the neurobiology of narrative comprehension, to validate narrative theories and to explore the connection between narrative and persuasion.”
The CSC program is about creating narratives, using effective communication to control the thought process and ultimately be able to trigger narratives through magnetic stimulation. The program attempts to map the brain network to determine which portions of the brain accept a narrative...and the influence narrative has on memory, emotion, theory of mind, identity and persuasion, which influence political decisions to engage in violence or join violent groups or support such groups ideologically or financially...
