"...a government that needs to guard itself from its people is a government without legitimacy."

Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful!

This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”

– Henry Kissinger in an address to the Bilderbergers at Evian, France, May 21, 1992.

“The outlook for civil liberties grows bleaker by the day, from the government’s embrace of indefinite detention for US citizens and armed surveillance drones flying overhead to warrantless surveillance of phone, email and Internet communications, and prosecutions of government whistle-blowers. The homeland is ruled by a police-industrial complex, an extension of the American military empire. Everything that our founding fathers warned against is now the new norm. The government has trained its sights on the American people. We have become the enemy. All the while, the American people remain largely oblivious.”

– John W. Whitehead.

Anonymous Everything in America Has Changed. Politician Warns Parliament of the 10 Ways Australia Has Become a Police State (Sound Familiar, America?) Australian politician and independent federal member for Denison Andrew Damien Wilkie warned parliament that Australia is becoming a police state. Wilkie then listed the 10 attributes of this police state: 1. Surveillance of all electronic devices including phone calls SMS Email, SM and metadata will be stored and accessed without a warrant. 2. Manipulation of the media, bullying techniques used by ministers against media. 3. Manipulation of judiciary. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Gee… Does any of this sound familiar, America?

New Report from Princeton and Northwestern Proves It: The U.S. is an Oligarchy. Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened. – From a recent study titled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens by Martin Gilens of Princeton University and Benjamin I.

Page of Northwestern University What is most incredible to me is that the data under scrutiny in the study was from 1981-2002. But sure, keep chanting USA! USA! So what’s the conclusion? Creepy, Calculating and Controlling: All the Ways Big Brother Is Watching You. Creepy, Calculating and Controlling: All the Ways Big Brother Is Watching You By John W. Whitehead February 16, 2015 “You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.” —George Orwell, 1984 None of us are perfect. Indeed, there was a time when most Americans thought nothing of driving a few miles over the speed limit, pausing (rather than coming to a full stop) at a red light when making a right-hand turn if no one was around, jaywalking across the street, and letting their kid play hookie from school once in a while.

My, how times have changed. Today, there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re all criminals. AMERICA WILL COLLAPSE BY 2016. France Deploys 10,000 Troops in Wake of Charlie Hebdo Attack. France increasingly resembles a police state. The Socialist Party government of François Hollande has mobilised 10,000 troops onto the streets after last week’s attacks on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine and the ensuing sieges. Said and Cherif Kouachi carried out the murder of cartoonists and staff at Charlie Hebdo’s offices and were later killed in a siege at an industrial building in Dammartin-en-Goële. The other siege at a kosher supermarket in Porte de Vincennes, eastern Paris, ended with the death of Amedy Coulibaly.

Seventeen people were killed by Said and Cherif Kouachi and Coulibaly, including four at the Kosher supermarket—Yohan Cohen, 22, Yoav Hattab, 21, Philippe Braham, said to be in his 40s, and Francois Michel Saada, reportedly in his 60s. Coulibaly earlier shot dead Clarissa Jean-Philippe, a 27-year-old newly trained police officer. Le Drian continued: “This is the first time that our troops have been mobilised to such an extent on our own soil. The Police State Is Upon Us. Paul Craig RobertsPrison January 31, 2015 Anyone paying attention knows that 9/11 has been used to create a police/warfare state. Years ago NSA official William Binney warned Americans about the universal spying by the National Security Agency, to little effect. Recently Edward Snowden proved the all-inclusive NSA spying by releasing spy documents, enough of which have been made available by Glenn Greenwald to establish the fact of NSA illegal and unconstitutional spying, spying that has no legal, constitutional, or “national security” reasons.Yet Americans are not up in arms.

Americans have accepted the government’s offenses against them as necessary protection against “terrorists.” Neither Congress, the White House, or the Judiciary has done anything about the wrongful spying, because the spying serves the government. No. Greenwald, so far, is too prominent to be hung for reporting the truth. A d v e r t i s e m e n t Those limits provided by the Founding Fathers are gone. NYPD Launches Plan to Deal with Protests – Arm Police with Long Rifles, Machines Guns and Extra Protective Gear. Murders reached a historic low in NYC for 2014; overall crime was down across the board by nearly 5%; hell, even the holiday slowdown didn’t really lead to any additional crime. So clearly, now is the time when NYC really needs to implement a new anti-terrorism program which would empower a team of NYPD officers to roam around the city carrying machine guns.

What could go wrong? This new squad will be used to investigate and combat terrorist plots, lone wolf terrorists, and… protests. “It is designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris,” Bratton said, according to CBS. – From the Gothamist article: New NYPD Anti-Terror Unit Will Get Machine Guns To Police Protesters The morphing of “terrorism” and “domestic dissent” into an all encompassing and convenient category known as “domestic terrorists” or “domestic extremists” has been a long time coming. The vast majority of people simply refuse to believe any of the above. » Feds to Unleash Hyper-Orwellian Police State at Super Bowl XLIX Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

FBI Report Accidentally Exposes the Severity of the Police State. A recently published FBI report accidentally proves that while the police claim cops face growing threats from rowdy populations like in Ferguson–the opposite is true. The report presents law enforcement deaths in 2013. The report found that across the entire country, only 76 LEOs were killed in “line-of-duty” incidents. 27 died as a result of “felonious” acts and 49 officers died in accidents namely, automobile (ironically, of the 23 killed in car accidents, 14 were not wearing seat belts–a violation for which cops routinely ticket drivers).

More officers die from accidents than actual murders on the job. The report also outright admits that intentional murders of cops were down from 2004 and 2009. Further, 49,851 officers were assaulted a statistic that seemingly proves police are at risk. 29.2%, or 14,556, were actually injured (an admittedly high number). Second, militarization is working for the police. Armored vehicle helps collect civil judgment in small town. When officials in the tiny Town of Stettin in Marathon County went to collect a civil judgment from 75-year-old Roger Hoeppner this month, they sent 24 armed officers. And an armored military vehicle. Among other issues, the recent unrest in Ferguson, Mo., focused attention on the growing militarization of local law enforcement, particularly the use by even very small police departments of surplus armored military vehicles.

Marathon County sheriff's officials aren't apologizing for their tactics. Sheriff's Capt. Greg Bean said officials expected to have to seize and remove tractors and wooden pallets to pay the judgment — hence the cadre of deputies. Hoeppner said when he noticed deputies outside his house, he called his attorney, Ryan Lister of Wausau. Bean said deputies had to handcuff Hoeppner because he was not following all their instructions, but did eventually agree to pay the $80,000 judgment after a visit to a bank — accompanied by deputies.

Long-standing rift Threats alleged. America is Falling Apart - #NewWorldNextWeek. Globalist Mouthpiece Calls For The Entire Planet To Adopt The ‘National Identification System’ One European Country Has Established. Michael SnyderAmerican Dream July 17, 2014 Would you like to have a digital identity card that is automatically issued to you at birth? In one European nation, residents use such a card when they go to the hospital, when they do their banking, when they go shopping and even when they vote. This card has become so popular that this particular European country actually plans to start issuing them to millions of non-citizens all over the planet who request them. Never heard about this? Neither had I before this week. The Economist, a well-known mouthpiece for the global elite, is calling for the entire planet to adopt this “national identification system” that the little nation of Estonia has adopted.

The Economist article about this national identification scheme went largely unnoticed because it had a very boring title: “Estonia takes the plunge“. There is one place where this cyberdream is already reality. If this was just limited to Estonia, it would be disturbing enough. It should. Conditioning.
