Obama’s Latest Executive Order: Martial Law, Confiscation of Private Property and Forced Labor

Kurt Nimmo

March 19, 2012

On Friday, March 16, Obama issued another unconstitutional executive order. The National Defense Resources Preparedness EO allows the government to confiscate your property without due process under the direction of Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security.



Obama’s EO allows the president to “take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements” in the event of a “potential threat to the security of the United States.”

Obama’s latest EO demonstrates once again that the executive will continue to violate the Constitution, in particular Article I, Section 1, which states: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

Any enactment of law by the executive is made in Excess of Jurisdiction and is by definition treason.

Fascist Executive Orders

Obama’s latest EO underscores and reemphasizes Bill Clinton’s EO 12919, signed on June 6, 1994.

Clinton’s 12919 followed a number of earlier executive orders allowing the government to steal your property – and also force you to be a slave laborer – during a vaguely declared “national emergency.” The government has given itself the authority to seize all communication (from television stations to CB radios), confiscate all food resources (including farms and farm equipment), take control of all transportation (including your family car), and compel you at gunpoint “under federal supervision” to work as a slave.

National Defense Resources Preparedness is a textbook example of fascism. It allows the government to steal privately owned property and publicly owned infrastructure and hand it over to its preferred corporate partners under the guise of a national emergency: “(b) provide for the modification or expansion of privately owned facilities, including the modification or improvement of production processes, when taking actions under sections 301, 302, or 303 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2091, 2092, 2093; and (c) sell or otherwise transfer equipment owned by the Federal Government and installed under section 303(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(e), to the owners of such plants, factories, or other industrial facilities.”

Fascist philosopher and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini used his principle of a “nation in arms” to steal private property from citizens. Obama’s latest EO declares the right to do the same. Mussolini devised fascist corporatism – the philosophy of the “corporative state” – and Obama under the direction of his Goldman Sachs and transnational corporate and bankster controllers has updated this corporate-statist doctrine, including the ability to steal privately earned and held wealth under the pretense of a national emergency.

Martial Law

Previous administrations installed the groundwork for Obama’s authoritarian move. Under Reagan, executive agencies were granted sweeping emergency powers to not only grab infrastructure and private property, but also round up citizens and put them in concentration camps and force them into slave labor brigades.

During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”

Obama’s NDAA was established to provide the legal mechanism for tasking the military to round up activists and others targeted by the government. Prior to the NDAA, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act and other related programs, the government devised Rex 84 and in particular Operation Garden Plot, an operational plan to use the Army, USAF, Navy, and Marine Corp. in direct support of civil disturbance control operations. It has since added numerous elements under the rubric of Continuity of Government, the overall war on terror, civil disturbance and emergency response.

The Artificial Birth of The Planetary Security State: Myth, Ritual, And Symbolism In The Global War on Terror

Evil stares humanity in the face from inside the dark depths of Washington D.C.

Saman Mohammadi

“Reason is judgment which accords with the scale of values incorporated by the Creator in creation, and Satan has repudiated all–values, Creator and creation. His judgment accords only with his own pride and self-deceit, as we have already observed in his falsifying view of God, man, and nature. Thus God the Father describes the demonic revolt as a revolt from reason: the fallen angels

     ‘. . .reason for their law refuse,
     Right reason for their law, and for their King
     Messiah, who by right of merit reigns.’ (VI, 41-43) (Milton’s Paradise Lost)

"Reason, in Milton, is repeatedly linked with freedom. True liberty, Michael tells Adam, 'with right reason dwells Twinn’d, and from her hath no dividual being' (XII, 84-85). Love, reason, freedom: the three are indissolubly connected, and Satan fell from all three. 'Freely we serve, Because we freely love,' says Raphael, 'in this we stand or fall, and some are fall’n' (V, 538-41). Satan and God agree in this, if in nothing else, that 'freely they stood who stood, and fell who fell' (III, 102)." – Roland Mushat Frye. "God, Man, And Satan: Patterns of Christian Thought and Life in Paradise Lost, Pilgrim’s Progress, and the Great Theologians.” Princeton University Press: Princeton, New Jersey. 1960. Pg. 34.

The creation of a global fascist government by stealth, terror, and deception has been an ongoing historical process that is entering its final stages. Since 2001, the process of global political transformation has advanced speedily in the shadows of history, concealed from public view by the global state-corporate media. This radical and militarist process of global domination is tied to the illegitimate and Machiavellian global war on terror, which is evil at the core.

The global war on terror is not a war against terrorists, but a genocide of democratic values, sovereign nation states, and innocent human beings. The war’s reasoning rests on false intellectual foundations and is completely devoid of morality and honour. U.S., Israeli, and Western officials have justified their insane aggressive global war by brainwashing their populations with fear and making baseless accusations against the nations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, and others.

II. Masking State Terror: Brand Psychology, War Propaganda, Cultural Legends, And Children’s Fairy Tales In The U.S. National Security State’s Version of History.

The official history of the war on terror is a farce. The 9/11 attacks, the hunt for Al-Qaeda, the reasons for the Iraq War, the death of Pat Tillman, and the official announcement of Bin Laden’s mysterious death, are all war propaganda, political myths, and children’s fairy tales. These events do not hold up to scrutiny. They are myths and legends.

The real history of the war on terror has been documented in great detail in the Internet wilderness by researchers, scholars, authors, and citizen-journalists from around the world.

In 1985, American philosopher and cultural critic William Irwin Thompson said that the U.S. military-industrial complex cannot survive without terrorizing other nations and creating new enemies, a point that was also made by ex-CIA officer John Stockwell in his 1984 book, “In Search of Enemies.” Thompson wrote in his article, “It’s Already Begun: The Planetary Age is an unacknowledged daily reality”:

    “Now what is the most important thing in defense integration to keep that economy running? Your Enemy. How are you going to work that system without an enemy? The Soviet Union is a more important part of America than Maine or North Dakota. We could loose those states and really be fine, but, if we lost our enemy, we’d collapse. So the basic system is to terrorize your enemies. Scare them and then use their aggressive behavior as prima-facie evidence that you need to beef up your defense industry. So you take a tiny little country like Nicaragua and you say we are threatened by it. They are going to be launching missiles. Terrify them so they have to declare marshall law and say the Americans are invading. Then they erode their civil liberties and you say, 'Aha! See, they are eroding their civil liberties. They’re a military state.' That now entitles us to build up our troops and get ready to invade Nicaragua. It’s a marvelous, perfectly closed, loop what in cybernetics is called a recursive system: Terrorize your enemy. Use their aggressive response to stimulate your own system and as you stimulate your own system that reinforces step one. It’s a perpetual mobius strip of economic development where the more you do to him, the more it encourages the economy and the more it goes into its trillion dollar runaway.

    "It’s the same thing with terrorism. We live in an informational society on a planetary scale. Who really understands that? Terrorists and rock stars. They know that the culture is information. They know that you have to manipulate information and that everything is appearance. Now what helps stimulate terrorists? The media, of course. Focusing all that attention stimulates them enormously. Between them there’s an unconscious collusion, a funny cops and robbers game, where reporters are journalists and members of civilization and good guys, and terrorists are a threat to civility and everything that’s decent. Yet, like continent and ocean, they are symbiotically feeding one another. Terrorists understand that, but we don’t quite understand it yet because we’ve been trained to think in terms of matter separated as objects in vacant containing space. We think, here are the good guys and there are the bad guys. We don’t understand this collusion with our enemy, and we don’t understand how negation is a form of emphasis.

    "If we went back to the Old Testament, we could read in Genesis where it says, 'Hey Adam, you see that red, juicy, luscious apple there? Don’t eat it.' Now that is a negation that’s a form of emphasis. The Almighty, being omniscient and very smart, clearly knows that He has put the idea of eating the apple into Adam’s head and, of course, what is Adam going to do but eat it and blame it on somebody else – project it onto his intuitive side. So, businessmen will make money and then project their sentimentality onto their wives, or America will have all this imperialistic behavior and project it on the Russians. To get beyond this, the unconscious has to be drawn into our own consciousness.”

Thompson’s last sentence is the most important, because it points to the reality of how the American and Israeli terrorist states psychologically manipulate the global collective mind to legitimize their destabilizing policies against innocent nations, while stigmatizing 9/11 truth-tellers.

The issue of consciousness is at the heart of the 9/11 events and the 9/11 debate. The mainstream media works like a machine in its suppression of the political unconscious, public consciousness, and the dark side of America’s militaristic state. The general public, regardless of partisan political loyalties, is also like a machine, but unlike the media it is a machine that is not self-aware of itself.

The label “conspiracy theory” is used as a psychological crutch that makes it easier for people to suppress the reality of evil in the U.S. government, and avoid doing what psychologist Carl Jung advised, which is to integrate the shadow side of life into our conscious and face the darkness of existence. 9/11 truth deniers don’t even entertain the idea that 9/11 was an inside job because they say that holding such knowledge puts them in a dark space emotionally and psychologically. This is a child’s response to the reality of evil.

Psychologists for 9/11 truth will play one of the biggest roles in the coming years in helping the American, Israeli, and Western public come to terms with what happened on September 11, 2001. The video, “Psychologists on coping with 9-11 truth,” provides a small showcase of how professional psychologists can use their expertise to help individuals to overcome the mental barriers and face the truth that powerful elements within the U.S. and Israeli governments were responsible for the 9/11 atrocity.

III. The Mass Rejection of Official Narratives, State Imposed Myths, And The Established Meaning of History.

Hollywood, Washington, and Tel Aviv, the cultural myth makers and political rule makers, have used their power to brainwash the American mind and keep America in a state of perpetual war with the rest of the world, joined side by side with Israel. Stephen Lendman described both America and Israel as “sham democracies,” in a recent article called, “America and Israel: Modern Day Spartas.” He added: “They tolerate none at home or abroad. How can they when wars define their existence. They’re not for noble aims, national security or self-defense. They’re about advancing imperial dominance and tolerating no dissent.”

The imperial elite in America and Israel are filled with hubris so they are not about to give up their power and control over human consciousness, Western memory, and global politics. But their power is not unbreakable. In fact, it is very weak. Their power is rooted not in justice, truth, and morality, but in violence, lies, and terror. The state imposed myths in their war on terror are collapsing. Their psychological enslavement of the American and global mind has been challenged and opposed from day one.

As a result of the global psychological opposition to the evil war on terror, there is a crisis of unity in our societies. The breakdown of the 9/11 myth has created a very deep psychological divide between the leadership and the population of the West, and of Israel. In this state of society, the economic and political establishment are emotionally separated from the people to such a high degree that they view themselves as a different species. The mass of humanity has been dehumanized by the sociopathic elite to the point that it is considered and treated as a disease that has to be systematically terminated out of existence.

Given this radical reality, there are only two social and political outcomes: violent repression, or global revolution. Under the American-Western-Israeli elite, the violent repression of the world population includes policies of genocide, the strategy of divide and conquer, state terrorism, engineering an economic collapse and world war, illegal imprisonment of political activists, media brainwashing of the world, systemic surveillance of society, food control, health control, and financial control. Such despotic control can only be exercised by a global elite through a scientific infrastructure of a new planetary security state.

The CIA’s War On Human Consciousness

Saman Mohammadi
Prisonplanet.com
March 26, 2012

“From 1950 to 1962, the C.I.A. ran a massive research project, a veritable Manhattan Project of the mind, spending over $1 billion a year to crack the code of human consciousness, from both mass persuasion and the use of coercion in individual interrogation.” – Professor Alfred McCoy, author of “A Question of Torture: CIA Interrogation, from the Cold War to the War on Terror.” This quote is from Prof. McCoy’s interview with Democracy Now on February 17, 2006.

“Our brain is domineering when it comes to coping with reality. We sometimes see things not as they really are, sometimes invent categories that do not exist and sometimes fail to see things that are really there. There are people who have never seen or heard of an aircraft and will not be able to imagine it and a real airplane overhead will be distorted in their minds, creating alternative realities.

"To recognize that what we call reality is only a consensus reality (only what we have agreed to call reality) is to recognize that we can perceive only what we can conceive. Captain Cook’s ship was invisible to the Tahitians because they could not conceive of such a vessel. Joseph Pearce explains this best: 'Man’s mind mirrors a universe that mirrors man’s mind.'" – Bharati Sarkar, “Consciousness – Our third eye.”

“Remember: those who are at the top of the heap will always take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the status quo. It is obvious that they cannot completely control the propagation of the information. So, how do they 'keep secrets?' They don’t. Everything is right out there in the public domain. Anybody who wants to can do the research we have done and come to the realizations we have in this process. BUT, not everyone is able to withstand the OTHER weapon of Mass Control: the fear of being labeled a 'suspected or potential supporter' in a world where the Grand Inquisitor has total control over life and death.” – Laura Knight-Jadczyk, “Mass Mind Control?”

Before the CIA and NSA decided it was a good idea to invade your home without your knowledge to spy on you with advanced appliances, smart phones, computers, and other electronics, they invaded your mind to manipulate your understanding of reality and history, especially of epochal events like the JFK assassination and the 9/11 attacks.

It is disturbing to know that the CIA has been inside the public mind for half a century, and is now using its unthinkable technological capabilities to invade private homes to document and categorize each individual’s behavioural patterns, lifestyle choices, information preferences, and daily habits.

Of course, state surveillance spooks cannot track and data-mine every space of information in this vast social ocean that we call the virtual world. But, that problem can be managed because the sharks of the state don’t need to be aware of the entire environment to strike fear in the fishes and other creatures. Just the fact that sharks are buzzing around is enough to make any thinking fish freeze and adapt his thoughts, views, opinions, and patterns in order to placate the sharks’ appetite for domination and total control.

The thoughtless fishes don’t realize that predatory sharks of the totalitarian state are hunting them to trap them in their net of surveillance and eventually kill them. But it isn’t their fault that they’re not aware of this frightening social environment because the CIA has uses its powerful state and private resources to deny them of this life-sustaining mental awareness. The CIA is conducting a covert war on human consciousness, and the false flag 9/11 attacks was its greatest propaganda victory in this unusual war.

The U.S. National Security State’s war on human consciousness includes its suppression of free energy, free thought, and free exchange of ideas. A vast array of human knowledge and human history is kept hidden from the global public by CIA spies in the American and global media.

But the suppression of information and historical reality is just one technique that the CIA has mastered since its murder of the President JFK. Its greatest mind control technique is also the most ancient: fear. Since 9/11, the fear of Islam and of mysterious terrorists has defined the public imagination of America, Israel, and the West.

Prof. Michel Chossudovsky articulated the social and political effects of state-induced fear in his article called, “AL QAEDA AND HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS: Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda…. An Incessant and Repetitive Public Discourse Part I.” Here is an excerpt from Prof. Chossudovsky’s article:

---------------

Human Consciousness: Al Qaeda and the Human Mindset

How does the daily bombardment of Al Qaeda related concepts and images, funnelled into the Western news chain and on network TV, affect the human mindset?

Al Qaeda concepts, repeated ad nauseam have potentially traumatic impacts on the human mind and the ability of normal human beings to analyze and comprehend the “real outside World” of war, politics and the economic crisis.

What is at stake is human consciousness and comprehension based on concepts and facts.

With Al Qaeda, however, there are no verifiable “facts” and “concepts”, because Al Qaeda has evolved into a media mythology, a legend, an invented ideological construct, used as an unsubtle tool of media disinformation and war propaganda.

Al Qaeda constitutes a stylized, fake and almost folkloric abstraction of terrorism, which permeates the inner consciousness of millions of people around the World.

Reference to Al Qaeda has become a dogma, a belief, which most people espouse unconditionally.
Is this political indoctrination? Is it brain-washing? If so what is the underlying objective?

People’s capacity to independently analyse World events, as well as address causal relationships pertaining to politics and society, is significantly impaired. That is the objective!

The routine use of Al Qaeda to generate blanket explanations of complex political events is meant to create confusion. It prevents people from thinking.

---------------

Chossudovsky’s most important point is that human consciousness is at stake. The CIA, Mossad, MI6, and other intelligence agencies around the world that have successfully invaded the global public mind through covert information and psychological operations are waging a war on the human mind. They are enemies of humanity, and enemies of human evolution.

Thus, for humanity to evolve and prosper, the CIA, MI6, and Mossad must be brought to justice. Also, the media companies that are cooperating with these agencies to suppress the truth about 9/11 and other evil events must also be brought to justice. They are suppressing information that will enlighten and awaken the people of the Western world to regain their rightful power over their governments.

These evil intelligence agencies and media companies are holding back humanity by brainwashing the global public with fear and lies. The education and enlightenment of all members of the planet is necessary not just for the prosperity of the species, but for its very survival.

There are informed people around the world who believe that the world is on the verge of a nuclear world war, which will be triggered by an American-Israeli attack on Iran within the next 12 months.

If such a tragic outcome comes to pass, we’ll know who to blame: the CIA, Mossad, MI6, the banksters’s military-industrial complex, and the global mainstream media that has systematically suppressed the truth about the 9/11 attacks and the real reasons for the Global War on Terrorism.

14 defining characteristics of fascism: The U.S. in 2012

Gregory Patin
Prisonplanet.com
March 26, 2012

When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross. — Sinclair Lewis, It Can’t Happen Here. (1935)

In the spring of 2003, ex-corporate executive and political scientist Lawrence W. Britt published an essay in Free Inquiry magazine entitled “Fascism Anyone?” In his work, Britt examined the traits of the two governments that formed the original historical model for fascism, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, and five other protofascist regimes that imitated that model, Franco’s Spain, Salazar’s Portugal, Papadopoulos’s Greece, Pinochet’s Chile, and Suharto’s Indonesia. He identified 14 characteristics that were common to all of them.

These traits have since been widely accepted as the 14 defining characteristics of fascism.

Nearly three generations removed from the horrors of Nazi Germany, all of these regimes have been overthrown, but fascism’s principles can still be found in many nations. History tends to repeat itself because many leaders and nations fail to learn from history, or they draw the wrong conclusions. Sadly, historical amnesia is the norm in the world today.

In the U.S., leaders, teachers, media and citizens proudly claim that America is a democratic society with certain freedoms and rights guaranteed to all citizens by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and rule of law. But is that really the case?

A close look at the 14 characteristics of fascism in light of what has changed in America in the past few years may raise some questions as to whether or not Americans truly live in a democratic society.

    1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. From the prominent displays of flags and bunting to the ubiquitous lapel pins, the fervor to show patriotic nationalism, both on the part of the regime itself and of citizens caught up in its frenzy, was always obvious. Catchy slogans, pride in the military, and demands for unity were common themes in expressing this nationalism. It was usually coupled with a suspicion of things foreign that often bordered on xenophobia.

Drive down any street in suburban or small-town America and witness the amount of flags flying, flag stickers on mailboxes, ribbon stickers on vehicles and patriotic tee shirts. Then-Senator Obama was criticized during his 2007 campaign for not wearing the ubiquitous flag lapel pin that many politicians wear. Nearly everyone has heard catchy slogans such as “Freedom isn’t Free,” “God Bless America” and “Support the Troops.” Borderline xenophobia is exemplified when french fries were renamed “freedom fries” in D.C. cafeterias. The fear of “illegals” taking scarce jobs has been written into legislation in states such as Arizona, where failure to carry immigration documents is a crime. Your papers, please?

Pulitzer Winning Reporter: US Being Transformed Into A Gulag By Military Industrial Complex

Slams Lack Of Media Outcry Over Indefinite Detention Law

Steve Watson
Prisonplanet.com
April 3, 2012



An award winning reporter who is suing the Obama administration over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which legislates for the ‘indefinite detention’ of American citizens without trial, is appalled at the lack of media coverage of the issue.

Appearing on RT, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, author and Middle East expert Chris Hedges said that the NDAA, otherwise known as the ‘Homeland Battlefield Bill’, is already causing a chilling effect on the work of journalists in the US.

“The NDAA has received very little publicity, including by my former employer The New York Times.” Hedges said.

“It is a piece of legislation that was essentially supported by both political parties. Indeed the sponsors of the Bill are Carl Levin, a Democrat and John McCain, a Republican. There was no outcry within the systems of power itself, and that of course meant there was no outcry within the media, which allows those systems of power to set the parameters of debate.” Hedges added.

The controversial legislation, signed into law by Obama on New Years Eve, allows American citizens to be abducted and held in a detention camp anywhere in the world without trial under section 1031. Although Obama indicated in a signing statement attached to the bill that he would not use it to indefinitely detain American citizens, it was the Obama administration itself that requested the provision be worded so it would apply to US citizens.

The legislation specifically says that any persons deemed to have “substantially supported” al-Qaida and the Taliban and “associated forces” may be incarcerated without trial.

“What’s an associated force?” Hedges rhetorically asked, after explaining that his lawsuit is based around the fact that definitions within the NDAA are extremely, and seemingly purposefully vague.

“It could be any organization on [America's terrorism] list, or lots of other organizations that aren’t on the list that are considered associated forces.” Hedges added.

“This is the problem. I spent 20 years as a foreign correspondent, and when we went through that list, there were 17 groups, including al Qaeda, that I have had, as a reporter, direct contact with. There is no provision in there to protect journalists at all, or anyone. Anybody can be swept up under this.” Hedges urged.

“You don’t want to hand these kinds of powers to the state, because history has shown that, eventually, they will use it.” he added.

“We’ve already seen from the Stratfor email releases, they’ve already [connected Occupy with terrorists],” he said. “Alexa O’Brien, who is one of the plaintiffs, lost her job because after these kind of accusations, U.S. government officials went to her employer and made investigations or queries about her. She was pulled off projects and eventually pushed out of her work. That is an example of the kind of world we are entering if we are not able to strike back against this legislation.”

Watch the full interview below:

       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYo2c2V0JLk

Hedges also penned a lengthy commentary piece on his opposition to the NDAA this week, providing greater context as to why the legislation represents such an assault on the Bill Of Rights and the Constitution.

“Our 16 national intelligence agencies and army of private contractors feed on paranoia, rumor, rampant careerism, demonization of critical free speech and often invented narratives.” Hedges writes.

“They justify their existence, and their consuming of vast governmental resources, by turning even the banal and the mundane into a potential threat. And by the time they finish, the nation will be a gulag.”

Last week a Federal court in New York heard the opening arguments for a preliminary injunction against the NDAA. Seven plaintiffs, including MIT professor Noam Chomsky, Pentagon Papers source Daniel Ellsberg, and author and campaigner Naomi Wolf argued that the US military will and has already undermined any safeguards to American citizens promised by the Obama administration.

America 2012: The Supreme Court Has Made It Legal For The Police To Strip Search You Any Time They Want

The American Dream
Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that police in the United States can strip search anyone that they arrest.  It doesn’t matter how minor the crime is and it doesn’t matter if they suspect that you have contraband on you or not.  The Supreme Court even said that you can be strip searched if you have been arrested for a traffic violation.  Any type of arrest will do.  Once you are arrested, if the police want to strip off your clothes and see you naked there is not a thing you can do about it.  You can read the entire Supreme Court decision right here.  Considering the fact that 13 million Americans are put in jail at some point each year, this is a very frightening thing.  The notion that we are all “innocent until proven guilty” is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.  Thanks to the Supreme Court, it is now legal for the police to strip search you any time they want.  All they have to do is find some excuse to arrest you.  And considering the fact that almost everything is illegal in America, that is not hard to do.  America continues to become a very dark place in 2012, and very few people are speaking up in defense of liberty and freedom.

But don’t the police need probable cause before they search you?  Aren’t we protected against unreasonable searches by the U.S. Constitution?  After all, the 4th Amendment says the following....

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Unfortunately, not even the Supreme Court seems to care much about the U.S. Constitution anymore.

As I have written about previously, in the “new America” you don’t get any rights.

Instead, the government gives you a limited number of “privileges” that it can revoke at any time.

The story of the man that was at the heart of the Supreme Court case mentioned above demonstrates this.  His name was Albert Florence and he was arrested for not paying a fine that he had already paid.

But the fact that he was innocent didn’t seem to matter too much to the police.  They held him in prison for six days and strip searched him twice.  The following is how CNN described what Florence went through after his arrest....

    Court records show Florence was subjected to an invasive strip and visual body-cavity search. He was then held for six days in the county lockup before being transferred to a Newark correctional facility, where, he claims, he was subjected to another more intrusive search before being placed in the general prison population.

    “It was very disgusting. It was just a bad, bad experience,” he told CNN’s Kate Bolduan recently. “I was just told, ‘Do as you’re told.’ Wash in this disgusting soap and obey the directions of the officer who was instructing me to turn around, lift my genitals up, turn around, and squat.”

Are you upset when you read that?

You should be.

You see, this is how totalitarian governments act.  Totalitarian regimes love to dehumanize and humiliate their “detainees” by stripping them naked.

So when we see this kind of behavior by authorities in the United States we should be very concerned.
And when we see the U.S. Supreme Court giving the stamp of approval to this kind of activity, we should be sounding the alarm.

At first, Americans were told that this kind of treatment would only happen to “prisoners of war” overseas.

But then came the “enhanced pat-downs” from the TSA.

Then we learned that the TSA was actually strip searching old women at our airports.

And now we discover that strip searching will be legal for every single person that is arrested in the entire nation.

What in the world is happening to us?

Some will argue that if you don’t want to be strip searched that you should just avoid committing a crime.

Well, in 2012 almost everything is a crime in America.

In fact, if you are just walking down the street minding your own business or even if you are in your own home doing absolutely nothing the police could still probably arrest you because there are probably about 1000 things that you are not doing that you are supposed to be doing.

And you know what horny police officers all over America are going to be thinking when they hear of this Supreme Court decision.

They are going to be thinking that it is now open season for strip searching beautiful women.

There have already been hundreds of complaints that the TSA has been specifically targeting attractive women during airport security screenings.

Anyone that does not believe that police are going to do the exact same thing is being delusional.

In fact, we have already seen many examples of this around the country.  As I wrote about a while back, one group of female pro-life demonstrators was recently strip searched by police twice.  They didn’t do anything wrong and they should have never been arrested, but that didn’t prevent them from being strip searched in front of male police officers.

We have crossed a very dangerous line as a nation.

We have now gotten to the point where sexual humiliation is a standard law enforcement technique.

A recent article by Naomi Wolf detailed how the use of sexual humiliation as a control technique has been steadily increasing in our society in recent years....

    Our surveillance state shown considerable determination to intrude on citizens sexually. There’s the sexual abuse of prisoners at Bagram – der Spiegel reports that “former inmates report incidents of … various forms of sexual humiliation. In some cases, an interrogator would place his penis along the face of the detainee while he was being questioned. Other inmates were raped with sticks or threatened with anal sex”. There was the stripping of Bradley Manning is solitary confinement. And there’s the policy set up after the story of the “underwear bomber” to grope US travelers genitally or else force them to go through a machine – made by a company, Rapiscan, owned by terror profiteer and former DHA czar Michael Chertoff – with images so vivid that it has been called the “pornoscanner”.

We have all been told that we must sacrifice personal dignity for the greater good.

We have all been told that “national security” trumps our liberties and our freedoms.

But the further we go down this road, the more we become like communist China, the USSR, North Korea and Nazi Germany.

Influential Senator Warned in 1975: “Th[e National Security Agency's] Capability At Any Time Could Be Turned Around On The American People”

No American Would Have Any Privacy Left …There Would Be No Place To Hide. [If A Dictator Ever Took Over, The N.S.A.] Could Enable It To Impose Total Tyranny, And There Would Be No Way To Fight Back”

Washington’s Blog
April 22, 2012

Senator Church’s Prophetic Warning

Senator Frank Church – who chaired the famous “Church Committee” into the unlawful FBI Cointel program, and who chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – said in 1975:

“Th[e National Security Agency's] capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide. [If a dictator ever took over, the N.S.A.] could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.“

Now, the NSA is building a $2 billion dollar facility in Utah which will use the world’s most powerful supercomputer to monitor virtually all phone calls, emails, internet usage, purchases and rentals, break all encryption, and then store everyone’s data permanently.

The former head of the program for the NSA recently held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said:

    We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.

So Senator Church’s warning was prophetic.

Spying Began Before 9/11

While you might assume that the NSA’s spying on Americans is a response to 9/11, the government’s illegal spying on Americans actually began before 9/11.

Bloomberg reported in 2006:

    The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court.

    “The Bush Administration asserted this became necessary after 9/11,” plaintiff’s lawyer Carl Mayer said in a telephone interview. “This undermines that assertion.”

    “The U.S. Department of Justice has stated that AT&T may neither confirm nor deny AT&T’s participation in the alleged NSA program because doing so would cause `exceptionally grave harm to national security’ and would violate both civil and criminal statutes,” AT&T spokesman Dave Pacholczyk said in an e-mail.

    U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Charles Miller and NSA spokesman Don Weber declined to comment.

And see this and this.

In other words, the NSA’s trashing of the constitutional rights of American citizens had nothing to do with 9/11.

Leaked U.S. Army Document Outlines Plan For Re-Education Camps In America

Political activists would be pacified to sympathize with the government

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Thursday, May 3, 2012

A leaked U.S. Army document prepared for the Department of Defense contains shocking plans for “political activists” to be pacified by “PSYOP officers” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.



The document, entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF) was originally released on a restricted basis to the DoD in February 2010, but has now been leaked online.

The manual outlines policies for processing detainees into internment camps both globally and inside the United States. International agencies like the UN and the Red Cross are named as partners in addition to domestic federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.

The document makes it clear that the policies apply “within U.S. territory” and involve, “DOD support to U.S. civil authorities for domestic emergencies, and for designated law enforcement and other activities,” including “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.”

Aside from enemy combatants and other classifications of detainees, the manual includes the designation of “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”

Once the detainees have been processed into the internment camp, the manual explains how they will be “indoctrinated,” with a particular focus on targeting political dissidents, into expressing support for U.S. policies.

The re-education process is the responsibility of the “Psychological Operations Officer,” whose job it is to design “PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations,” according to the document.

The manual lists the following roles that are designated to the “PSYOP team”.

- Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.

- Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.

- Identifies political activists.

- Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).

- Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.

- Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.

Remember, this is not restricted to insurgents in Iraq who are detained in prison camps – the manual makes it clear that the policies also apply “within U.S. territory” under the auspices of the DHS and FEMA.

The historical significance of states using internment camps to re-educate detainees centers around the fact that it is almost exclusively practiced by repressive and dictatorial regimes like the former Soviet Union and Stalinist regimes like modern day North Korea.

We have exhaustively documented preparations for the mass internment of citizens inside America, but this is the first time that language concerning the re-education of detainees, in particular political activists, has cropped up in our research.

In 2009, the National Guard posted a number of job opportunities looking for “Internment/Resettlement Specialists” to work in “civilian internee camps” within the United States.

In December last year it was also revealed that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States.

In 2006, KBR was contracted by Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” that would require large numbers of people to be interned.

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border, the same pretense used in the language of the KBR request for services.

During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”

Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed by Barack Obama on New Year’s Eve, American citizens can be kidnapped and detained indefinitely without trial.

Yes, The Re-Education Camp Manual Does Apply Domestically to U.S. Citizens

The time for denial is over

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, May 4, 2012

RELATED: Leaked U.S. Army Document Outlines Plan For Re-Education Camps In America

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers contains numerous clear references to the fact that the policies do apply domestically to U.S. citizens.

Despite the fact that the manual is well over 300 pages long and would take hours to read properly, within minutes of posting our story yesterday a minority of commenters were claiming that the policies outlined in the document only pertained to foreign combat operations and did not apply domestically to U.S. citizens.

This is similar to the denial witnessed prior to the passage of the NDAA when some argued that the indefinite detention provisions did not apply to American citizens despite numerous legal analysts asserting they did and President Barack Obama himself acknowledging they did when he signed the bill.

Click here [.pdf] to read the full document entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations.



The most alarming portion of the document appears on page 56 and makes it clear that detention camps will have PSYOP teams whose responsibility will be to use “indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes,” as well as targeting “political activists” with such indoctrination programs to provide “understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.”

Let’s make one thing clear – the manual primarily deals with enemy combatants captured and detained in foreign prison camps run by the U.S. Military. However, another thing that is just as clear from reading the manual in full is the fact that it also applies to citizens detained within the United States, whether they be DCs (displaced citizens) or “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”

Firstly, throughout the manual there are scores of references to how the U.S. Army would work together with the DHS, ICE and FEMA (page 24) to implement the policies “within U.S. territory” as part of “civil support operations” in the aftermath of “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.” (page 38).



“The handling of DCs (displaced citizens) is also a mission that may be performed in support of disaster relief or other emergencies within the United States or U.S. territories during civil support operations,” states page 33. Page 56 also states that it is the responsibility of the PSYOP officer to “control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.”

Resettlement conducted as a part of civil support operations will always be conducted in support of another lead agency (Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security)” states page 37.

All these passages make it clear that the policies outlined on page 56 are also applicable within U.S. territory as part of “civil support operations” conducted in partnership with domestic federal agencies like the DHS and ICE. The U.S. Immigration authorities have no role in detaining prisoners in Afghanistan and Iraq and neither do other U.S. agencies also listed in the document such as the Public Health Service (page 224).

The document also contains numerous references to U.S. citizens (notably pages 13, 41). Page 13 notes how “U.S. citizens will be confined separately from detainees,” meaning they will be separated from foreign prisoners in the camps.

On page 146 of the manual, we learn how prisoners in the camps are to be identified.



“The prisoner’s last name, first name, and middle initial are placed on the first line of a name board, and the prisoner’s social security number is placed on the second line.”

Last time I checked, the United States Social Security Administration was not responsible for handing out social security numbers to people in Afghanistan or Iraq.

On page 193 of the document, we learn that the policies outlined in the manual can be applied domestically. The language makes it clear that so long as the President passes an executive order to nullify Posse Comitatus, the law that forbids the military from engaging in domestic law enforcement, the policies “may be performed as domestic civil support operations.”



The manual states, “These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,” and adds that “The authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,” would require a “special exception” to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via “the President invoking his executive authority.”

These examples are just a handful of a plethora contained in the 326 page ‘Internment and Resettlement’ document which prove that the policies in the manual apply not only to foreign prisoners abroad, but also to American citizens within the United States.

On top of this, we have the 2009 story about how the National Guard posted a number of job listings looking for “Internment/Resettlement Specialists” to work in “civilian internee camps” within the United States.

The time for denial is over. People spent weeks arguing over the ‘indefinite detention’ provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act, ignoring assertions by top scholars and legal experts that the kidnapping provisions did apply to U.S. citizens.

It appears as though cognitive dissonance is causing some people to desperately search for any way of denying the shocking truth contained in these Army documents. This is particularly prevalent amongst Democrats and liberals, whose support for the cult of Barack Obama has blinded them to the fact that his administration is passing legislation which in many cases is far more draconian than anything Bush signed into law.

Take this comment for example from the Democratic Underground forum. Linking to our article from yesterday, a user writes, “A friend of mine just posted (as he usually does) a ridiculous article from InfoWars and it’s pissing me off to no end. I’m trying to find stuff to continuously disprove this drivel, and I’m probably wasting my time. Anyone able to help on this particular “story”?”

The individual does not even have the inclination to look at the source document to find out if the story is true, they would rather just throw out ad hominem insults like “ridiculous” and “drivel”. Rather than being “pissed off” at the frightening language contained in the U.S. Army manual, the individual is “pissed off” at Infowars for reporting on it.

Yes, the U.S. Army has really written a manual which details re-education camps. Yes, the manual does apply to U.S. citizens domestically. Denying these manifestly provable facts will not make the threat go away. This is not an imaginary monster under the bed.

The time for denial is over.

Re-Education Camp Manual Includes Rules On Isolating Political Prisoners

Document also describes forced labor

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, May 7, 2012

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how “political activists,” including American citizens, are to be indoctrinated in re-education camps also includes rules on forced labor and separating political prisoners by confining them in isolation.



Aside from detailing how PSYOP teams will use “indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes,” as well as targeting “political activists” with indoctrination programs to provide “understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions,” the manual directs political prisoners to be separated from the rest of the camp population.

On page 284, the manual (PDF) describes how “Malcontents, rabble-rousers, trained agitators, and political officers who may attempt to organize resistance or create disturbances within the I/R facility,” are to be confined “in isolated enclosures to deny them access to the general population.”

The document also makes clear that the internment facility is not only a re-education camp but also a forced labor camp. Page 277 of the manual states, “Detainees constitute a significant labor force of skilled and unskilled individuals. These individuals should be employed to the fullest extent possible in work that is needed to construct, manage, perform administrative functions for, and maintain the internment facility.”

Page 69 of the manual notes in a section called ‘Detainee Processing Technique’ that prisoners should first have their weapons confiscated before “silence” is guaranteed by methods to, “Prevent detainees from communicating with one another or making audible clamor….Silence uncooperative detainees by muffling them with a soft, clean cloth tied around their mouths and fastened at the backs of their heads.”

As we have exhaustively documented, all these provisions apply not only to prisoners in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, but also to American citizens domestically, including “civilian detainees” incarcerated for “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power,” as part of “domestic civil support operations” involving FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security.

The manual details how prisoners will be identified by their “social security number,” another glaring confirmation that the rules apply to U.S. citizens.

The document makes it clear that the rules apply to processing American detainees on U.S. soil so long as the President passes an executive order to nullify Posse Comitatus, the law that forbids the U.S. military from engaging in domestic law enforcement.

Although this story has gone viral amongst independent media outlets, the only mainstream news operations to cover it have been Russia Today and Digital Journal. Having studied all the documents, Digital Journal writer Anne Sewell confirms all the points of our original article – that the manual does describe how to re-educate political activists and that its policies do apply to U.S. citizens domestically.

17-Year-Old Girl Included On Obama’s Secret ‘Kill List’

17-Year-Old Girl Included On Obama’s Secret ‘Kill List’

Americans target of state-sponsored assassination program

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Tuesday, May 29, 2012

President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional secret ‘kill list’ includes a 17-year-old girl along with several American citizens, according to a New York Times report.



“Mr. Obama has placed himself at the helm of a top secret “nominations” process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the capture part has become largely theoretical. He had vowed to align the fight against Al Qaeda with American values; the chart, introducing people whose deaths he might soon be asked to order, underscored just what a moral and legal conundrum this could be,” reports the NY Times, adding that one of the targets in Yemen is “a girl who looked even younger than her 17 years,” and that “Several were Americans.”

The White House has asserted the right to carry out state-sponsored assassination anywhere in the world without having to provide any evidence or go through any legal process. The administration merely has to state that the target is a terrorist and it doesn’t matter whether they are an American citizen or not, as we saw in the case of American-born Anwar al-Awlaki and his son, who were both killed last year.

In December, Obama administration lawyers reaffirmed their backing for state sponsored assassination, claiming that “U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets” and do not have the right to any legal protection against being marked for summary execution.

During a CBS 60 Minutes interview in January, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed that Obama himself personally approves the policy to kill American citizens suspected of terrorism without trial on a case by case basis.

“So it’s the requirement of the administration under the current legal understanding that the president has to make that declaration, not you?” Panetta was asked, to which he replied, “That is correct.”

The fact that the administration is carrying out state-sponsored assassination with absolutely no regard to legal due process in the name of fighting Al-Qaeda is particularly brazen given the fact that the US has backed Al-Qaeda terrorists in both Libya and Syria in the effort to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi and Bashar Al-Assad.

“In the USA, it is illegal to impose executions on people under 18, something that most Democrats would support, I suppose. Yet, their vaunted president, Barack Obama, has declared that a 17-year-old girl is to be gunned down if American spies can find her,” writes Bill Anderson.

“Somehow, I doubt that there will be a peep of protest about that at the Democratic National Convention this summer. And, to make things even more depressing, I’m sure that the Republicans will claim that Obama is “soft on terrorism” and is too “timid” to launch the U.S. Killing Machine in full force. So it has come to this: Washington, D.C., is the new home of Murder, Inc.”

CFR Proposes Using Army To Enforce Domestic Law

CFR Proposes Using Army To Enforce Domestic Law

Elite group calls for blatant violation of Posse Comitatus Act

Steve Watson
Prisonplanet.com
June 4, 2012

The Council On Foreign Relations, the elite think tank long associated with globalist policy making and subversion of the principles of the US Constitution, has published an article that proposes using the army to plan and carry out domestic law enforcement missions in the US.

An article in the May/June issue of the CFR official journal, Foreign Affairs, calls for the army to address “challenges in the United States itself” with the justification being to protect Americans from terrorist attacks.

The article, written by Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, General Raymond T. Odierno states:

“Where appropriate we will also dedicate active-duty forces, especially those with niche skills and equipment, to provide civilian officials with a robust set of reliable and rapid response options.”

Odierno suggests that major changes within the US now deem it necessary to use the military in such a way. The General points to “declining budgets due to the country’s worsened fiscal situation”;“a shift in emphasis to the Asia-Pacific region”; and a “broadening of focus from counterinsurgency, counterterrorism, and training of partners to shaping the strategic environment, preventing the outbreak of dangerous regional conflicts, and improving the army’s readiness to respond in force to a range of complex contingencies worldwide.”

Odierno suggests that the army be “transitioned” into a more “flexible force” by deploying in situations normally reserved for domestic law enforcement officials. He argues that by doing so, troops will be better equipped to deal with conflict elsewhere.

Odierno also specifically singles out The Army National Guard and the Army Reserve, noting “Today’s army also has an unprecedented level of integration between its active and its reserve components… Our reserve component soldiers are better than they have ever been, and we will dedicate resources to ensure that some of them will be either deployed or ready to deploy around the globe.”

The article presents a red flag to anyone who has followed the consistent push by the federal government to militarize the police and further integrate the armed forces into domestic law enforcement.

Of course, the use of U.S. troops in law enforcement duties is a complete violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act, which substantially limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement unless under precise and extreme circumstances.

Section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

However, despite the constitutional protections outlined in these laws, there has been and is on ongoing push to blur the divisions between military and domestic law enforcement officials.

National Guard troops are routinely involved in ‘urban warfare training’ drills. Usually such drills take place within the confines of military bases, however, more recently heavily armed troops are increasingly seen patrolling residential neighborhoods and even the downtown areas of major US cities.



Such “invasions” are often reported on as nothing to worry about and even as “cool”.

Indeed, back in 2008 the Washington Post reported how 20,000 U.S. troops returning from Iraq would be stationed inside America under Northcom for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards.

Northcom officials were forced to subsequently issue a denial after the Army Times initially reported that the troops would be used to deal “with civil unrest and crowd control.”

As Alex Jones exposed back in the late 1990’s, U.S. troops have been training to impose martial law for a considerable amount of time. During numerous urban warfare drills that Jones attended and reported on, troops were trained to raid, arrest and imprison U.S. citizens in detention camps as well as taking over public buildings and running checkpoints. During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops.

The fact that such drills are now set to involve Russian soldiers training on U.S. soil to hunt “terrorists” has also caused consternation.

Federal authorities in the United States have clearly been preparing for domestic civil unrest for a number of years. The Department of Homeland Security recently purchased a staggering 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets as well as bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.

In addition, worrying legislation such as the National Defense Authorization Act, has paved the way for the incarceration of American citizens under military laws, and numerous leaked and semi-secret documents position the army as partners to domestic federal agencies in quelling unrest in America and even engaging in missions involving the ”resettlement” of US citizens.

NSA Refuses To Admit To Spying On Americans

Agency says it would “further violate” everyone’s privacy if it wasn’t a secret

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
June 18, 2012



The National Security Agency has refused to provide details on its clandestine domestic spying program, as requested by two prominent Senators, suggesting that to do so would violate the privacy of Americans.

Last month Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall of the intelligence oversight committee once again asked the NSA to divulge how many innocent Americans have had their communications monitored under the expanded Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, counterterrorism powers put into place four years ago.

The expansion of powers in 2008 eliminated the need for the NSA to have probable cause to intercept any American’s phone calls, text messages or emails.

Now Wired Magazine blog DangerRoom has acquired a letter (PDF) from the Inspector General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which notes that “NSA leadership agreed that an IG review of the sort suggested would further violate the privacy of U.S. persons.”

The letter, written by I. Charles McCullough, also claims that the NSA, which has as many employees as the FBI and the CIA combined, does not have the man power to collate and reveal such details, and that to attempt to do so would jeopardize the program.

“I defer to [the NSA inspector general's] conclusion that obtaining such an estimate was beyond the capacity of his office and dedicating sufficient additional resources would likely impede the NSA’s mission,” McCullough wrote.

Senator Wyden responded with a statement Monday, noting “All that Senator Udall and I are asking for is a ballpark estimate of how many Americans have been monitored under this law, and it is disappointing that the Inspectors General cannot provide it.”

“If no one will even estimate how many Americans have had their communications collected under this law then it is all the more important that Congress act to close the ‘back door searches’ loophole, to keep the government from searching for Americans’ phone calls and emails without a warrant,” Wyden added.

Describing the NSA’s response as “disappointing and unsatisfactory,” Legal secrecy expert Steve Aftergood, of the Federation of American Scientists, believes it is unacceptable for any intelligence agency to refuse to address such an “entirely legitimate oversight question.”

“If the FISA Amendments Act is not susceptible to oversight in this way,” Aftergood said, “it should be repealed, not renewed.”

Last year, the NSA tacitly admitted that it has an active domestic spying program when the general counsel testified to a Senate hearing, overseen by Wyden and Udall, that he believes the agency has the authority to track Americans via cell phones.

“There are certain circumstances where that authority may exist,” said Matthew Olsen the Director of The National Counterterrorism Center.

Wyden and Udall have been pressing the NSA for some time to reveal whether or not the agency is collecting sensitive data on Americans such as cell site data, which would allow for tracking the location of anyone using a cell phone in the US.

Along with Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), Wyden introduced a joint bill last year that would force any government agency to secure a search warrant and show probable cause before tracking the location of any American.

Wyden has consistently expressed concern that the law relating to surveillance is unclear, and is being “secretly interpreted by the executive branch.”

Last week, Wyden blocked the Senate from a unanimous consent vote on a bill that would extend the FISA for a further five years. He was the only Senator to take action against the proposal, which was secretly approved for a floor vote last month [.pdf], and would have otherwise passed through a virtually empty Senate chamber without objection.

In his statement, Wyden said he objects to the extension of the law because it does not contain protections against warrantless “back door” searches of Americans.

“I believe that there should be clear rules prohibiting the government from searching through these communications in an effort to find the phone calls or emails of a particular American, unless the government has obtained a warrant or emergency authorization permitting surveillance of that American,” he said.

As a candidate for president in 2008, Barack Obama promised to revisit and revise the rules of FISA to protect Americans’ rights, after he had voted for the bill as a Senator. However, as president, Obama has continued where president Bush left off in calling for extending the legislation and even actively preventing any judicial oversight of the wiretapping program.

The FISA provision, introduced in 2008, was merely a confirmation of activity that government spy agencies, including the NSA, have been engaging in for years.

The ACLU recently released an infographic (below) detailing how the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program has grown in gargantuan proportions and now intercepts 1.7 billion US electronic communications every single day. Those communications will soon all be funneled through the top secret $2 billion spy center in the Utah desert, which the NSA has refused to provide Congress with details of.

“Don’t Be Alarmed”: Army Trains MPs To Drive Tanks On U.S. Streets

Sightings of vehicles provokes fears of martial law

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, June 22, 2012

St Louis City residents have been warned to not be alarmed at the sight of U.S. Army tanks rolling down residential neighborhoods after sightings of the vehicles provoked fears of martial law.

[Embedded video omitted - see original article]

The exercise is part of a U.S. Army program run by military police from Fort Meade, Maryland focused around training MPs from St. Louis how to drive heavily armored tanks “on highways and on city streets.”

Sightings of the tanks prompted hundreds of residents to flood news channel KSDK’s Facebook page, with some expressing fears that martial law had arrived with others promising to “stop and salute” the tanks as they rolled by.

Reporting that he was told by the Army not to disclose the location of where the exercise was operating out of for “security reasons,” KSDK reporter Casey Nolan downplayed the exercise as “not such a big deal.”

U.S. Army Sergeant Cornelius Ivory discouraged citizens from taking video and photographs of the tanks and urged them not to get too close.

“They need to know to stay away from it,” Ivory told KSDK.

The exercise will run from June 21-28 in St. Louis, with the presence of the tanks being most noticeable in the area of the sixth district.

As we have exhaustively documented, the increasing shift towards domestic militarization of law enforcement is part of the acclimation process to get Americans comfortable with the idea of troops and tanks on the streets as a routine occurrence.

Earlier today we reported on how scores of paramilitary troops and soldiers appearing to be from the National Guard were deployed onto the streets of Hartford, Connecticut to break-up a recent annual Puerto Rican-American cultural event.

This is just the latest of scores of examples of how the military and National Guard is increasingly being deployed domestically to target the American people.

National Guard and U.S. Army troops are routinely involved in ‘urban warfare training’ drills. Usually such drills take place within the confines of military bases, however, more recently heavily armed troops are increasingly seen patrolling residential neighborhoods and even the downtown areas of major US cities.

Such “invasions” are often reported on as nothing to worry about and even as “cool” by the mainstream media.

Back in 2008 the Washington Post reported how 20,000 U.S. troops returning from Iraq would be stationed inside America under Northcom for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards.

Northcom officials were forced to subsequently issue a denial after the Army Times initially reported that the troops would be used to deal “with civil unrest and crowd control.”

An article published in the May/June issue of Foreign Affairs, the mouthpiece for the influential Council on Foreign Relations, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, General Raymond T. Odierno, advocates the army be “transitioned” into a more “flexible force” by deploying in situations normally reserved for domestic law enforcement officials. He argues that by doing so, troops will be better equipped to deal with conflict elsewhere.

Domestic deployment of troops for purposes of law enforcement is a clear violation of section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act, which states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

Army Manual Outlines Plan To Kill Rioters, Demonstrators In America

Army Manual Outlines Plan To Kill Rioters, Demonstrators In America

“Warning shots will not be fired”

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, July 6, 2012

A newly leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.



The document (PDF), which is dated 2006 and was used for a self-learning course at the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan, makes it clear that the operations described in the manual apply to both “CONUS and OCONUS,” meaning inside the Continental United States and outside the Continental United States.

The document outlines how military assets will be used to “help local and state authorities to restore and maintain law and order” in the event of mass riots, civil unrest or a declaration of martial law.

The primary function of military assets will be focused around, “breaking up unauthorized gatherings and by patrolling the disturbance area to prevent the commission of lawless acts,” states the document, adding, “during operations to restore order, military forces may present a show of force, establish roadblocks, break up crowds, employ crowd control agents, patrol, serve as security forces or reserves, and perform other operations as required.”

The manual also describes how prisoners will be processed through temporary internment camps under the guidance of U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which as we reported earlier this year, outlines how internees would be “re-educated” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.

On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”

The manual includes lists of weapons to be used against “rioters” or “demonstrators,” including “antiriot grenades.” It also advises troops to carry their guns in the “safe port arms” stance, a psychological tactic aimed at “making a show of force before rioters.” Non-lethal weapons and water cannons are also included.

The document also explains how the military will be involved in spying on and gathering information on dissidents to identify the, “Existence of persons, groups, or organizations which have distinctively threatened or are creating disturbances.”

“Crowd control agents” will also be deployed for the purpose of “reducing resistance,” states the manual, which also implies that troops will be used to confiscate firearms.

“Restrictions on the sale, transfer, and possession of sensitive material such as gasoline, firearms, ammunition, and explosives will help control forces in minimizing certain forms of violence,” states the document on page 40.

“Consideration may be given to evacuating sensitive items, such as weapons from stores,” the manual also states on page 27.

The document emphasizes how troops should make every effort, “to avoid appearing as an alien invading force and to present the image of a restrained and well-disciplined force whose sole purpose is to help to restore law and order with a minimum loss of life and property.”

This 115 page manual represents a shocking new insight into how the U.S. military will be used domestically to violently quell unrest in the aftermath of a total economic collapse or other national emergency.

Preparations for using troops to deal with mass civil unrest on U.S. soil have been in the works for years.

Back in 2008, U.S. troops returning from Iraq were earmarked for “homeland patrols” with one of their roles including helping with “civil unrest and crowd control”.

In December 2008, the Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.

A report produced that same year by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report [.pdf], authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border.

During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”

With many Americans now becoming “pre-revolutionary” as a result of their fury at the Obama administration and equally unpopular lawmakers in Washington, potential civil unrest could spring not just from a poverty-stricken underclass, but also the shrinking middle class.

Perhaps that’s why the Department of Homeland Security is increasingly focusing its anti-terror apparatus on white middle class Americans, portraying them as domestic terrorists in a series of PSA videos. In addition, ‘Occupy’ protesters are also now being characterized as terrorists.

14 Incredibly Creepy Surveillance Technologies That Big Brother Will Be Using To Spy On You

Michael Snyder
The American Dream
July 10, 2012

Most of us don’t think much about it, but the truth is that people are being watched, tracked and monitored more today than at any other time in human history.  The explosive growth of technology in recent years has given governments, spy agencies and big corporations monitoring tools that the despots and dictators of the past could only dream of.  Previous generations never had to deal with “pre-crime” surveillance cameras that use body language to spot criminals or unmanned drones watching them from far above.  Previous generations would have never even dreamed that street lights and refrigerators might be spying on them.  Many of the incredibly creepy surveillance technologies that you are about to read about are likely to absolutely astound you.  We are rapidly heading toward a world where there will be no such thing as privacy anymore.  Big Brother is becoming all-pervasive, and thousands of new technologies are currently being developed that will make it even easier to spy on you.  The world is changing at a breathtaking pace, and a lot of the changes are definitely not for the better.

The following are 14 incredibly creepy surveillance technologies that Big Brother will be using to watch you....

#1 “Pre-Crime” Surveillance Cameras

A company known as BRS Labs has developed “pre-crime” surveillance cameras that can supposedly determine if you are a terrorist or a criminal even before you commit a crime.
Does that sound insane?

Well, authorities are taking this technology quite seriously.  In fact, dozens of these cameras are being installed at major transportation hubs in San Francisco….

    In its latest project BRS Labs is to install its devices on the transport system in San Francisco, which includes buses, trams and subways.

    The company says will put them in 12 stations with up to 22 cameras in each, bringing the total number to 288.

    The cameras will be able to track up to 150 people at a time in real time and will gradually build up a ‘memory’ of suspicious behaviour to work out what is suspicious.

#2 Capturing Fingerprints From 20 Feet Away

Can you imagine someone reading your fingerprints from 20 feet away without you ever knowing it?

This kind of technology is actually already here according to POPSCI....

    Gaining access to your gym or office building could soon be as simple as waving a hand at the front door. A Hunsville, Ala.-based company called IDair is developing a system that can scan and identify a fingerprint from nearly 20 feet away. Coupled with other biometrics, it could soon allow security systems to grant or deny access from a distance, without requiring users to stop and scan a fingerprint, swipe an ID card, or otherwise lose a moment dealing with technology.

    Currently IDair’s primary customer is the military, but the startup wants to open up commercially to any business or enterprise that wants to put a layer of security between its facilities and the larger world. A gym chain is already beta testing the system (no more using your roommate’s gym ID to get in a free workout), and IDair’s founder says that at some point his technology could enable purchases to be made biometrically, using fingerprints and irises as unique identifiers rather than credit card numbers and data embedded in magnetic strips or RFID chips.

#3 Mobile Backscatter Vans

Police all over America will soon be driving around in unmarked vans looking inside your cars and even under your clothes using the same “pornoscanner” technology currently being utilized by the TSA at U.S. airports….

    American cops are set to join the US military in deploying American Science & Engineering’s Z Backscatter Vans, or mobile backscatter radiation x-rays. These are what TSA officials call “the amazing radioactive genital viewer,” now seen in airports around America, ionizing the private parts of children, the elderly, and you (yes you).

    These pornoscannerwagons will look like regular anonymous vans, and will cruise America’s streets, indiscriminately peering through the cars (and clothes) of anyone in range of its mighty isotope-cannon. But don’t worry, it’s not a violation of privacy. As AS&E’s vice president of marketing Joe Reiss sez, “From a privacy standpoint, I’m hard-pressed to see what the concern or objection could be.”

You can see a YouTube video presentation about this new technology right here.

#4 Hijacking Your Mind

The U.S. military literally wants to be able to hijack your mind.  The theory is that this would enable U.S. forces to non-violently convince terrorists not to be terrorists anymore.  But obviously the potential for abuse with this kind of technology is extraordinary.  The following is from a recent article by Dick Pelletier....

Video: Hundreds Of DHS Armored Trucks On The Move?

More footage of military vehicles being delivered surfaces online

Steve Watson
Prisonplanet.com
Mar 25, 2013

Footage of hundreds of armored trucks, similar to ones reportedly purchased recently by the Department Of Homeland Security has appeared online, raising more questions over their intended use.

The video was uploaded to YouTube last week by a user who stated that it was shot in the middle of the desert between Hackberry and Peach Springs, Arizona.

It shows hundreds of military style trucks loaded on to a train, presumably in the process of being delivered domestically for law enforcement or military purposes.

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTHb1M5S3K0

The video raises significant questions in the wake of reports that the Department of Homeland Security, headed by Janet Napolitano, recently purchased around 2,700 MRAP trucks that many believe are to be deployed to local law enforcement agencies around the country.

It is clear that the DHS does have fleets of armoured vehicles intended for use in the US.

Here is a demonstration video of such a vehicle by ICE agents:

Obama DHS Planned to Kill Peaceful Protesters in Sniper Attacks

Feds, contractors and police prepared to carry out death squad operations

Alex Jones and Julie Wilson
Prison Planet.com
July 25, 2013


This document was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act
request filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund. Click on image
to see enlargement.


In June, Infowars.com cited a report by WhoWhatWhy.com revealing that the “FBI was aware of an organization, possibly a local police department or private security company, that had plans to assassinate peaceful protesters during the Occupy Movement.”

The classified document released by the FBI read:

    An identified [DELETED] as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin,Texas. [DELETED] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles.

“According to journalist David Lindorff, the FBI planned to assassinate the leaders of the now moribund Occupy movement ‘via suppressed sniper rifles,” a follow up report by Kurt Nimmo confirmed.

The following is a transcript of Alex Jones spoken analysis:

It is essential to understand that information is being declassified on purpose, to create a chilling effect against constitutionally protected activities like demonstrations and protests. But it’s also there to mainline the idea that assassination/death squads are operating within America.

When you have the president signing the NDAA publicly saying we can kill, disappear Americans, we can torture, we can do whatever we want, that can then be given to special forces, contractors and others who have already been carrying out these types of seek-and-destroy operations in foreign countries.

So they believe it’s legal and lawful. In essence, this is the public roll-out, or testing of the waters. A trial balloon for death squads to operate openly in America.

All of this in the name of “terrorism,” when the government itself has become the ultimate terrorists.

This is psychological warfare against police, the military and the general public. It is the mainlining, the normalizing of the most barbarous, over-the-top, illegal activities that governments can engage in.

The open, premeditated plan to murder peaceful demonstrators on a scale that dwarfs Kent State protests.

This is a test to contractors, police, military and the feds–standby for your orders to kill.

This is how they’re creating an army of killers. The police need to know that this is a psyop aimed at them, to see if they’ll carry out over-the-top evil.

We’re talking about a truly hijacked rogue government that’s done this clandestinely in the third world for over sixty years.

What goes around, comes around.

America sat idly by while criminal elements used our government to carry out death squad operations, now it’s coming home.

Cops that don’t follow orders, get beat or sentenced to tax collecting, also known as meeting ticket quotas.

We focused in on the micro–how they’re manipulating the individual security services, let’s expand on the macro. Once it becomes well known that there’s death squads operating it will create a chilling effect.

But it will also cause reprisals.

When somebody’s car blows up like Hastings’ in the future, people will know it was done by the system.

They won’t know who to target, but there will be reprisals.

Military veterans will target every major city with IEDs in the near future and are the number terror threat according the DHS occupation forces.

The off the chart nature of this is what’s so genius. Tyrants that go over the top, tend to succeed more often than tyrants that just move incrementally.

We’ve known for 5 years that DHS was shifting from Al-Qaeda to veterans and gun owners being the number one terror threat. And now it’s just been normalized.

Now we’re being acclimated to the idea of sniper teams taking people out for exercising the first amendment. If it worked for the Nazis and the Soviets, why not here?

Two days ago the House joined the NSA by endorsing illegal spying, which indicates the bottom has completely fallen out of our republic.

The blackest stench of tyranny now spills fourth from the mah of hell. Every form of evil is being released from its eon-old sleep to crawl openly upon the ground and devour our security, our wealth and our future.

They’re getting ready to push us into a civil war.

They’re getting ready to push the security services into confrontations with the American people, to start the conflict that they’ve scripted.

Just like in Iraq they’ve pushed the Shiites off against the Sunnis. It’s pure divide and conquer, it’s scientifically diabolical.

If observers ever want to know how the U.S. could be brought down, it would be from within, with this 21st century type high-tech subterfuge.

This is it.

How can foreign banks steal tens of trillions of dollars of Americans’ money? Simple. Just say protesting banks is an act of terrorism and kill everybody that dares to speak out.

The other so called Americans will just run in fear and endorse the oppression, thanks to mass Stockholm syndrome engineered into them from birth.

The powerful fiction film The Purge, is a near future window into the choices we have to make.

DHS ‘Constitution Free’ Zones Inside US Ignored By Media

By Anthony Gucciardi
Global Research, August 07, 2013
Story Leak 5 August 2013



n what should be front page news blasted out nationwide as a breaking news alert, the DHS has openly established extensive ‘Constitution free zones’ in which your Fourth Amendment does not exist.

It’s not ‘conspiracy’ and it’s not fraud, the DHS has literally created an imaginary ‘border’ within the United States that engulfs 100 miles from every single end of the nation. Within this fabricated ‘border’, the DHS can search your electronic belongings for no reason. We’re talking about no suspicion, no reasonable cause, nothing. No reason whatsoever is required under their own regulations. The DHS is now above the Constitution under their own rules, and even Wired magazine authors were amazed at the level of pure tyranny going on here.

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsJ4JnWMQtg

This ‘border’ even includes where the US land meets oceans in addition to legitimate borders with Mexico and Canada. As a result, you have over 197 million citizens suffocated in these 100 mile ‘border zones’ that include major cities like New York City, Houston, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. Checkout the graphic below for a visual representation, with the orange area representing the Constitution free zone as designated by the DHS:



What’s even more amazing, is that this has been going on since 2008. That’s about 5 years of absolute unconstitutional abuse of power by the Department of Homeland Security that the media fails to even document. That’s 197 million citizens living without a Constitution as far as the DHS is concerned, and apparently the Department of Justice (DOJ) must be pretty content too. Amazingly, no one has challenged this besides the ACLU, which was contacted following the case of a man who was actually detained within the 100 mile ‘border’ area.

Not only was this man’s laptop searched for no reason, as is ‘allowed’ under DHS code now, but they ended up finding pictures designated to be linked up with ‘terrorist’ groups. In response, the man was thrown in a cell while DHS agents went through every piece of data on his entire laptop. The ACLU is now suing over this event, but there’s no telling how the case will go with such limited media exposure. The DHS is literally gutting the Constitution and declaring itself higher than the law of the land by doing this, and it spells out major trouble for the entire Bill of Rights at large.

DHS DISMISSES CONSTITUTION, BILL OF RIGHTS

Because if the DHS can simply ‘overrule’ the Fourth Amendment for 197 million citizens, it can also ‘overrule’ the First and Second Amendments as well. What’s stopping them? It’s highly illegal under the Constitution, but it appears they truly don’t care. And to demonstrate just how little they truly care, they have even gone and ‘reviewed’ themselves for their own actions following outcry from some legal experts.

NSA Scandal: New York Times Editors Support Police State Persecution

By Stephen Lendman
Global Research
August 07, 2013

It doesn’t surprise. Times editors, columnists and contributors reflect what famed investigative journalist/critic George Seldes (1890 – 1995) called “prostitutes of the press.”

They feature managed news misinformation. They suppress what readers most need to know. They support wealth, power and privilege. They oppose popular interests.

They call imperial wars liberating ones. They say business does things better than government so let it. They claim America’s beautiful. They say it’s the best of all possible worlds.

They call beneficial social change heresy. They say patriotism requires supporting US policies right or wrong. They believe liberties are subverted for our own good.

No wonder they’re losing subscribers. Readers wanting facts reject fiction. They reject managed news misinformation substituting for truth and full disclosure.

They reject cover up and denial. They reject distortion. They reject wrongheaded views. They reject bald-faced lies. They reject supporting wrong over right.

Times editors want Edward Snowden held accountable. They want Russia to extradite him. They want him to stand trial. They want him punished for doing the right thing.

They want lawless NSA spying continued. They want what most people oppose. On August 6, they headlined ”What’s the Point of a Summit?”

Obama’s “expected to decide soon whether to proceed with a planned summit meeting with President Vladimir Putin” next month in Moscow. “At the moment, the answer should be no.”

Note: Obama confirmed his intention to participate in September’s G20 summit. According to Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, he’ll meet with Putin in Moscow ahead of the summit. It begins on September 5.

“We haven’t received any changes, or any notifications” in what’s planned, said Peskov. US ambassador Michael McFaul’s been heavily involved in arranging things. He’s been at it for weeks.

Canceling a long-planned meeting’s counterproductive. Both leaders disagree often. They do so on important issues. Normalized relations matter more.

During June’s G8 summit, Obama and Putin held face-to-face talks. They did so for two hours. They discussed Syria and other policy differences. The point is they talked. They did it directly. It’s the best way when possible.

According to Times editors:

“On top of all the other legitimate grievances with Mr. Putin’s policies came his decision to essentially stick a thumb in Mr. Obama’s eye by granting asylum to Edward Snowden, the man who disclosed to the world the National Security Agency sweeps of Americans’ telephone records.”

“The Obama administration had urged Mr. Putin not to grant Mr. Snowden asylum.”

“Under the circumstances, the only outcome of a summit meeting would be to add to Mr. Putin’s domestic political capital and his already considerable self-esteem.”

At Tuesday’s daily press briefing, State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said John Kerry and Chuck Hagel will meet with their Russian counterparts. They’ll do so on Friday. They’ll discuss “bilateral and global issues.”

Snowden’s asylum will be addressed. Psaki ignored lawless spying. She avoided commenting on Obama’s planned pre-summit meeting with Putin.

She said only that Washington’s working jointly with Russia on “a range of issues.” Whether Obama and Putin will do so face-to-face in Moscow remains to be seen.

Times editors reject it. They call Russia’s decision to grant Snowden asylum “provocative.” They claim it’s granted “for people who are afraid to return to their own country because they fear persecution, unlawful imprisonment or even death because of their race, their ethnicity, their religion, their membership in particular social or political groups, or their political beliefs.”

Snowden fears arrest and prosecution, they said. “But those fears do not qualify him for asylum,” they claim.

Fact check

Snowden acted heroically. He committed no crimes. He exposed lawless spying. He did so responsibly. He connected important dots for millions. He initiated a national debate. He’s against what everyone should oppose.

Free societies don’t spy on their citizens. They don’t lie and claim otherwise. They don’t act lawlessly. They don’t conduct espionage on allies. They don’t prioritize wrong over right.

Responsible journalists report accurately. They don’t support lawlessness. They don’t attack whistleblowers who expose it.

They don’t want Snowden denied asylum. They support him. They’re on his side. They urge other whistleblowers to tell what they know. They back right over wrong. They do so responsibly.

Times editors claim granting Snowden asylum “seriously br(eaks) the partnership that Mr. Obama sought to build with Russia.”

It gets worse. Russia bashing is official Times policy.

“Ever since Mr. Putin reclaimed the presidency in 2012, he has been profoundly at odds with the administration over the Syrian civil war, missile defense issues and further reductions in nuclear weapons,” said Times editors.

“Meanwhile, Mr. Putin is a repressive and arrogant leader who treats his people with contempt, as the recent crackdown on gays and lesbians demonstrates.”

Times editors conveniently ignore what they refuse to admit. Washington’s waging aggressive war on Syria. Death squad proxies are used.

They murder innocent women and children. They target the elderly and infirm. They’ve use chemical weapons. They claim a divine right to kill, torture and maim.

US bases encroach close to Russia’s borders. So-called missile defense and tracking radar are for offense. They target Russia. They threaten war.

Washington wants Russian sovereignty destroyed. It wants its main military rival neutralized. It wants unchallenged global dominance. It’s ravaging one country after another to achieve it.

Police state repression targets ordinary Americans. Freedom’s on the chopping block for elimination. It’s practically gone already.

It’s one major false flag terrorist attack from ending. Don’t expect Times editors to explain.

On September 5 and 6, Putin will host G20 leaders. He’ll do so in St. Petersburg. Obama will attend as planned.

According to Times editors, meeting bilaterally in Moscow is another matter.

“There is no reason for Mr. Obama to attend unless Mr. Putin provides solid assurances that he is prepared to address contentious issues in a substantive and constructive way.”

“Otherwise, what’s the point?”

The “point’s” not Putin. It’s Obama. It’s destructive US policies. It’s Washington’s rage against rule of law principles, equity, justice, freedom, and other democratic values.

It’s America’s war on humanity. It’s about responsible world leaders contesting it. Don’t expect Times editors to explain.

Don’t expect them to support right over wrong. Doing so would violate longstanding management and editorial policy.

20 Drills that Prove the DHS’ Official New Enemy is the American People

Kim M.
Planet Infowars
October 28, 2013



Out of 47 “scenarios” being practiced by first responders during Urban Shield 2013 this October 25 – 28 in the San Francisco Bay Area, at least 20 of them are “domestic” – either stated explicitly, or implied (see below in BOLD CAPS) – and possibly more.

Overall, the scenarios vary widely in scope – up to and including “odor investigation” – but the “domestic terrorists” are generally characterized as being anything from “anarchists” (Tea Partiers? Christians? Patriots?) to “homegrown” terrorists (recent American-Moslem converts duped into FBI-sting operations?)

Interesting to note that, as of this writing, the English “Urban Shield” Wikipedia entry has disappeared… but you can still get it in French. (Too bad for you if you don’t read French.)

However, there is still a brief mention of Urban Shield in the English Wikipedia entry for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ASCO).

According to Wikipedia’s ASCO entry, Urban Shield is the largest urban “SWAT” exercise in America. Always held in autumn, it provides “opportunities” for first-responder teams from all over the nation to train in what appears to be mostly “terrorist” scenarios.

(As an aside – since I scan the news feeds daily – I’ve been noticing variations of ALL these “scenarios” making the news on a regular basis, including recently locking down an entire school district in Richmond, California due to an “odor investigation”… for an odor which turned out to be from a smelly barge starting its engine several miles outside the city limits. Oh, the hysteria.)

You should also be pleased and comforted to note that among the many “public/private partners” (and corporate sponsors) taking part in this year’s Urban Shield will be the Boy Scouts, FedEx and Verizon Wireless.

And, in addition to the 18 federal agencies listed (including Louisiana State University?), there will also be 12 foreign countries keeping us safe from domestic terrorists: Israel, Brazil, Guam, Israeli Yamam, Norway, Switzerland, France, Jordan, Bahrain, Singapore, Canada and Qatar.

With all this “help” – in what is turning out to be a huge multi-billion dollar industry – it makes you wonder who is keeping us safe from the “helpers?”

DHS Publicly Denies Preparation for Riots, Civil Unrest

Flip-flop: While admitting equipment and armed guards are for “civil disturbances,” federal agency claims otherwise

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
November 6, 2013



The Department of Homeland Security has denied that it is preparing for domestic unrest despite the purchase of riot gear and the hiring of armed guards which the federal agency freely admits are for “riot control situations” and “civil disturbances”.

Responding to an inquiry by the International Business Times regarding the recent purchase of riot control equipment, pepper spray launchers, pepper spray projectiles, as well as the hiring of armed guards to protect government buildings, the DHS dismissed reports (primarily from Infowars) that such activity was related to preparations for domestic disorder.

“These reports are false. The referenced Federal Protective Service (FPS) acquisition request for Protective Security Officers will replace an existing contract due to expire November 2014, which provides security and screening within federal facilities throughout upstate New York,” DHS spokesman S.Y. Lee said in the statement. “This routine acquisition planning is not in response to, or anticipation of, any potential situation.”

However, that’s the opposite of what the solicitation that accompanied the hiring of the armed guards actually stated. Indeed, two of the ‘potential situations’ listed by the DHS itself as to why they were hiring armed guards to protect government buildings were “public demonstration(s)” and “civil disturbances”.

Lee also told the IBT that Homeland Security’s recent purchase of pepper spray launchers and pepper spray projectiles was for “training purposes” only, adding, “The reports about the Department of Homeland Security preparing for any extraordinary situation or domestic unrest are unequivocally false.”

If the pepper spray projectiles were for training purposes only, then why did the federal agency purchase 120,000 live projectiles in addition to 117,000 training projectiles?

Furthermore, when the federal agency purchased riot gear back in June, the DHS itself again admitted that the equipment was for “riot control situations.”

Why is the DHS denying in public media statements what it freely admits within the pages of its own contract solicitations?

Whether America is set to be hit by domestic unrest or not, the fact is that Homeland Security is preparing for that outcome. That’s not Infowars.com making such a claim - the DHS itself admits it in their own documents.

These questions were not asked by the International Business Times’ Connor Adams Sheets, who also characterized the DHS’ bid to “quash dissent, monitor public events, and infiltrate peaceful protest groups,” as a “conspiracy theory,” despite the fact that the federal agency has admittedly spied on and infiltrated peaceful advocacy groups since at least 2006, according to the ACLU.

The issue of why the DHS is now hiring an armed domestic security force in Minnesota and Wisconsin which is required to have a “Top Secret” security clearance was also not explored.

Just as with the DHS’ ammunition buying controversy, which again in this piece is erroneously dismissed as bulk buying to save money, an explanation we debunked months ago, the mainstream media seems to think that potential government malfeasance can easily be dismissed by merely reprinting the glib statements of government officials without any scrutiny whatsoever.

America has been seized by an executive dictatorship

Brand Obama: Totalitarianism 2.0

America has been seized by an executive dictatorship

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
December 17, 2013



History has witnessed almost every kind of dictatorship imaginable, but what Americans are facing in the 21st century is a form of totalitarianism so pernicious that it is able to camouflage its unified agenda behind a veil of contrived partisan politics that tricks people into believing they have choice and freedom, when in reality the entire country and the office of president has been seized by a cabal of corporate looters.

This cabal manufactured Brand Obama just as they will manufacture future presidents as mere figureheads for Totalitarianism 2.0 – a new form of tyranny which places large corporations and military-industrial complex titans above the law with diplomatic immunity, while exploiting the office of president to achieve a fusion of corporate and state dictatorship via executive fiat.

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.” Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope.

The office of president is now merely a rubber stamp for the machinations of a global elite that rule the world through secret societies, private organizations, think tanks and huge transnational corporations, all of which combine to form the “military-industrial complex” and the “technological elite” that Eisenhower warned Americans about in his farewell speech over 50 years ago, the same special interests Barry Goldwater outed during his presidential campaign.

“The Trilateralist Commission is international…(and)…is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateralist Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.” Barry Goldwater.

These special interests could not have successfully consolidated executive power without the aid of the mainstream media in covering it all up, keeping Americans distracted, deluded and decadent, as arch-elitists like David Rockefeller set about their business.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years….It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” David Rockefeller.

Rockefeller himself even bragged that he was “guilty” and “proud” of being part of “a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States” in his own book.

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” David Rockefeller, Memoirs.

Easily the most impressive marketing campaign in the history of mankind, enthusiastically sold by the corporate media which Rockefeller thanked, was the manufacturing of Brand Obama. While Obama, a constitutional law scholar, vowed to reverse the constitutional train wreck that was the Bush administration and restore America’s global image, the cabal who put him in office planned to use that cloak of empty promises to achieve the exact opposite.

As Jon Pilger warned shortly after Obama was elected, “President Obama does one thing and brand Obama gets you to believe another. This is the essence of successful advertising. You buy or do what the advertiser wants because of how they make you feel…. and so you are kept in a perpetual state of childishness.”

This “perpetual state of childishness” still dominates many on the political left nearly five years after Obama took office. Millions of Americans remain under the delusion that Obama is fighting against an obstructionist Congress as he tries in vain to fix the country. In reality, the media has invented the myth of an obstructionist Congress in an effort to justify and legitimize Obama’s dictatorial crusade against the Constitution as he continues to enrich the executive branch with unbridled power.

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9ginkCl5Oo

Examples of how totalitarianism 2.0 has been expanded under Obama are innumerable.

- After failing to pass gun control measures via Congress, Obama has vowed to savage the 2nd Amendment through executive orders as part of an end run around the right to keep and bear arms. This agenda stems from a March 2011 White House meeting when Obama promised to launch a sneak attack against the 2nd Amendment “under the radar”.

- The Obama administration, as part of its pursuit to “bankrupt” the coal industry, has used the EPA to shut down coal-fired plants across the country, driving up prices for consumers and increasing America’s dependence on foreign oil. This assault on the free market has been achieved via arbitrary and extra-legal “regulations” invented by the EPA in the name of halting global warming, which is a completely fraudulent hoax. However, Obama has provided his corporate backers like General Electric with waivers so that they are exempt from the regulations.

“The great concern I have for this body [Congress] is that it is not only being circumvented, but it is also being denied the ability to enforce its inherent powers. … [T]he president is outside the line, but it has to go before a court, and a court has to grant review, and that’s where we have the most serious constitutional crisis I have viewed in my lifetime. And that is, this body is becoming less and less relevant.” George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley.

Former Top NSA Official: “We Are Now In A Police State”

Washington’s Blog
December 18, 2013

Bill Binney is the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information.  A 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, Binney was the senior technical director within the agency and managed thousands of NSA employees.

Binney has been interviewed by virtually all of the mainstream media, including CBS, ABC, CNN, New York Times, USA Today, Fox News, PBS and many others.

Last year, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said:

    We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.

But today, Binney told Washington’s Blog that the U.S. has already become a police state.

By way of background, the government is spying on virtually everything we do.

All of the information gained by the NSA through spying is then shared with federal, state and local agencies, and they are using that information to prosecute petty crimes such as drugs and taxes. The agencies are instructed to intentionally “launder” the information gained through spying, i.e. to pretend that they got the information in a more legitimate way … and to hide that from defense attorneys and judges.

This is a bigger deal than you may realize, as legal experts say that there are so many federal and state laws in the United States, that no one can keep track of them all … and everyone violates laws every day without even knowing it.

The NSA also ships Americans’ most confidential, sensitive information to foreign countries like Israel (and here), the UK and other countries … so they can “unmask” the information and give it back to the NSA … or use it for their own purposes.

Binney told us today:

Amerikan Stasi Police State Staring Us In The Face

Paul Craig Roberts
Prison Planet.com
February 19, 2014


Image: Urban Warfare Training (Wikimedia Commons).

American taxpayers have built an entire city in Virginia so that the Pentagon, can practice occupying American cities and putting down protests by US citizens. http://www.prisonplanet.com/u-s-army-builds-fake-city-in-virginia-to-practice-military-occupation.html This fake city is the training ground for the doctrine outlined in a leaked US Army document http://info.publicintelligence.net/USAMPS-CivilDisturbanceOps.pdf that describes how soldiers are to be trained to put down domestic disturbances and process prisoners through detainment camps where prisoners will be re-educated to appreciate US policies.

In situations of “extreme necessity” the training embraces deadly force: “Warning shot will not be fired. When a firearm is discharged it will be fired with the intent of rendering the person(s) at whom it is discharged incapable of continuing that activity or course of behavior.” Lecturers in the training courses describe constitutionalists as “domestic extremists.”

Does this make the President of the United States, whose oath of office is to defend the US Constitution against enemies domestic and foreign, a domestic extremist? Is the fear of arrest by Homeland Security as a domestic extremist the reason Obama refuses to defend the Constitution of the United States?

The Army is being trained for domestic police duties that are in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act that prevents the use of the military for domestic law enforcement, another indication that Washington has no respect for the country’s laws and that Obama and his “Justice” Department have no intention of enforcing the laws of the land or abiding by the Constitution.

Where is the media outcry? Where are the law schools? Where is Congress? A government that disregards the laws of the land is both treasonous and tyrannical. Yet, not a peep from “the free and the brave.”

The US government and its puppet auxiliary, the UK government, have turned with vengeance against whistleblowers and their attorneys. Bradley Manning is in prison, Julian Assange is confined to the Ecuadoran Embassy in London, and Edward Snowden is under Russian protection from a tyrannical US government. Jessellyn Radack, an attorney who represented Snowden was recently detained and questioned in an intimidating way at London’s Heathrow Airport. http://rt.com/news/snowden-lawyer-heathrow-airport-346/ Washington has taught its British puppet state how to mimic Washington’s Gestapo ways.

The latest revelations of the criminal activities of the Amerikan National Stasi Agency comes from a leaked NSA document that shows that the Stasi agency considers WikiLeaks Julian Assange to be a “malicious foreign actor” and launched “an international effort to focus the legal element of national power upon non-state actor Assange, and the human network that supports WikiLeaks.” Clearly, the Gestapo is upon us.

RT reports: “The NSA was not alone in its sweeping espionage on the whistle-blowing organization. It also enlisted its partners in the Five Eyes spying network (UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada) as well as other nations. In documents dating back from August 2010, the US urged 10 other countries with forces in Afghanistan to consider pressing criminal charges against Julian Assange — ‘founder of the rogue WikiLeaks internet website and responsible for the unauthorized publication of over 70,000 classified documents covering the war in Afghanistan.’” http://rt.com/news/wikileaks-assange-calls-prosecutor-526/

In other words, freedom of the press? We don’t need no stinking freedom of the press. We have the presstitute press–the TV networks, the New York Times, Washington Post, National Public Radio, and all the rest of the officially sanctioned state Ministry of Propaganda.

Julian Assange stated, correctly, “The NSA and its UK accomplices show no respect for the rule of law.”

WikiLeaks’ attorney, Judge Baltasar Garzon, the pursuer of Pinochet, had this to say:

    “The paradox is that Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks organization are being treated as a threat instead of what they are: a journalist and a media organization that are exercising their fundamental right to receive and impart information in its original form, free from omission and censorship, free from partisan interests, free from economic or political pressure.”

What has happened that explains the transformation of the UK and all of its former English colonies–the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand–into Gestapo Stasi states? These are the countries best known historically for their domestic civil liberties and rule of law, irrespective of their treatment of their indigenous populations and in the case of England her non-white colonies. The original dispossession was of indigenous peoples. Now these governments have turned on their own.Today the governments of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (the Five Eyes) see civil liberty and the accountability of government to law as threats to themselves, and the governments are determined to stamp out the threats. The historical lands of liberty have abandoned liberty and become Stasi states.

What has occurred in the US and UK is that the criminal and treasonous acts of both governments have become so extreme that the governments must destroy civil liberty in order to protect themselves from exposure. Whenever you hear “national security” invoked, you know that government is covering up its crimes and its lies.

The criminal character of both US and UK governments is now recognized by the rest of the world, even by the bought-and-paid-for NATO puppet states, France and Germany. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande are discussing the creation of an European communication network in order to protect Europeans’ communications from the NSA and from Google, Facebook, and other US communication companies that shamelessly cooperate with NSA’s spy network as junior members of the Stasi. Brazil and South America are facing the same challenge of protecting their communications from Washington’s National Stasi Agency.

NSA spies on foreign companies for the benefit of American ones, and it spies on US law firms representing clients against the US government. The New York Times recently reported that the corrupt Australian puppet state has been working with NSA to steal the private communications of US lawyers with their clients in the Indonesian government involved in a trade dispute with Washington.” http://on.rt.com/vw8d8v In other words, NSA spying helps the US government to prevail in economic lawsuits against it, but the spying is justified in the name of the nonexistent “terrorist threat.” The terrorist is NSA.

And you thought Washington was only spying on “terrorists” to prevent them from “killing us over here.”

It is impossible to paint a picture of a more lawless government than Washington has painted of itself.
Americans should take note that the media is on guard, prepared at an instance’s notice to suppress free speech. Washington is ever so pleased to support protesters in Ukraine, who are witlessly helping Washington to subvert their country, but no protests at home thank you.

With the Pentagon building fake cities for soldiers to demolish while practicing the unconstitutional occupation practices that are in store for us in the homeland, Alex Jones’ predictions move out of the realm of conspiracy theory. Washington has finally noticed that the result of moving middle class jobs offshore is an American population without a future. As Gerald Celente says, when people have nothing left to lose, they lose it. The US military is gearing up for when Americans can’t take it any more.

Meanwhile Washington continues the pretense of America as the land of “freedom and democracy” and “concern for human rights,” blah-blah-blah. People all over the world, with the exception of the paid protesters in western Ukraine, are no longer listening to the bullshit flowing from Washington and its presstitute media.
