Every year we pass a National Defense Authorization Act. Each year, it has something hidden in it, secret tax breaks for big party contributors, pork barrel projects but this year we have gone too far. This year’s bill officially recreates the equivalent of the East German or North Korean police state here at home, as usual, “to protect us from terrorism.”
I want protection from our own government, me and, thus far, about 250 million other Americans. We have seen what they can do, and many of us know they are willing to go much further, we don’t just think it, we know it and we know why.
The Senate, all Republicans and too many key Democrats have pushed through the most insane legislation in our history, at a time when America hasn’t had a functioning Supreme Court for years. The law, how do we describe it, is very clear. It creates a permanent state of martial law in the United States, unlimited wire tapping, unlimited warrant-less searches, “stop, search and question” checkpoints at state borders, no more right to legal counsel.
It also authorizes torture, it authorizes transfer and detention of American citizens at “offshore” prisons, Europe, Africa, who knows?
Why? Why now? What is driving this, is this really about terrorism, is America facing a massive terrorist threat despite all reports to the contrary including estimates by CIA Director Leon Panetta that Al Qaeda may be down to less than 12 members? There are, of course, those who believe there never has been an “Al Qaeda.” The BBC almost imploded when this piece was released and, of course, later suppressed:
Let’s be clear. There is a threat, not against America but against our politicians (Occupy Wall St. Movement).
America’s military during its worst failures, under its worst management, facing massive cutbacks, is now maneuvering itself to take over police powers inside the United States. Why?
The “War on Terror” is over. Did we win or lose? Neither, we made the whole thing up, invented it as a cheap replacement for the Cold War. Who has that power?
Ever hear of the “Military, Industrial Complex?” Add huge international drug cartels, the Israel lobby and Wall Street to it and you have all the power in the world and all the bad intentions with it. What do they want? I can tell you what they don’t want.
The don’t want free elections, they don’t want an America with a constitutional government, they don’t want peace and plenty, they don’t want “civilians” and “intellectuals” telling them what to do. They don’t get along well with lawyers and courts and things like “justice,” words that mean nothing to them but represent “freedom” and “liberty” to the rest of us who don’t seem to matter a hill of beans anymore.
America has never been as militarily weak as we are now. We stand alone, not just because, as with Bush, we are a pariah state fighting an aggressive war for drugs, oil and Israel but because we no longer have the economic capacity to support military power.
Our only hope is for new wars and new wars are the only hope that some have, that “some” being the ruling class that is pushing the new Defense Authorization Act forward, with its martial law provisions, are based on our ability to fool the world into believing America has been attacked.
For those who don’t know, the proof on the 9/11 conspiracy, Israel’s part, the Pentagon missile, all of it has leaked onto the internet and into some of the world’s press. You may learn about it next week or next year but you will learn about it.
“They” don’t want you to ever be able to find out the truth again and this is what this bill is about. America won’t be able to go to China and Japan and ask for billions, even trillions of dollars to invade Iran or fight Russia, where we are really heading unless you haven’t been paying attention, without being able to claim that terrorists used a nuclear weapon to attack an American city.
We’ve all been hearing the horror stories about economic collapse. With that collapse goes all miltiary power as well. Even China can collapse, they are sitting on the edge themselves. What the ability to stage terror attacks, even nuclear false flag terrorism can do is act as a giant “reset” button. Borrowing, if anything is left, is one ploy but, as things stand, debt repudiation and restructuring of currencies, that New World Order we hear about, control of governments, control of economies, centralized control of money and all resources becomes an “easy sell.”
Maybe it won’t be a big bomb, only a hundred thousand dead or so. maybe “they” have something else in mind, 9/11 was certainly dramatic, it will be hard to top.
The only way that “they” can maintain “damage control” over a story like this with government credibility totally non-existent is to use martial law to jail the phony terrorists, to “disappear” investigative journalists, to “pull the plug” on the internet, it is all heading one way.
It is all part of the same thing.
