1984 – Are We There Yet?

December 5, 2010

Surveillance

It has recently been revealed that “law enforcement agencies routinely seek and obtain real-time surveillance of credit card transaction [sic]. The government’s guidelines reveal that this surveillance often occurs with a simple subpoena, thus sidestepping any Fourth Amendment protections.”

Webcams, traffic cams, building security cams, cell phone cams, email and internet use monitoring, your cell phone can be remotely turned into a microphone, Google Earth, Google streetview, GPS, On-Star, TSA “security” screenings …. all that and more means, just like in the book, we can never really know when we are being watched. You have to assume it is always.

Thoughtcrime

The rabid reaction of government and its controlled media outlets to Wikileaks’ publication of “CableGate” documents is nothing short of branding certain activities as thoughtcrime.

State Dept Warning Students Not to Read, Share WikiLeaks

Columbia University’s Office of Career Service is said to have passed around an email warning students that if they read WikiLeaks or make comments related to the releases it would render them ineligible for any government jobs in the future, based on a warning sent by a former student working at the State Department.

State Department spokeswoman Nicole Thompson insisted the warning wasn’t an official Department directive but added that making public comments or posting links to WikiLeaks content wasn’t “a good move for any US citizen.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday, “Information warfare is warfare, and Julian Assange is engaged in warfare. Information terrorism, which leads to people getting killed, is terrorism, and Julian Assange is engaged in terrorism. He should be treated as an enemy combatant” [emphasis added]

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell said, “I think the man is a high-tech terrorist. He’s done enormous damage to our country, and I think he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and if that becomes a problem, we need to change the law.” [emphasis added]

As Bill Anderson writes on the LRC Blog:

This country now is governed by a regime that can fashion a “crime” against any of you. Have you ever failed to do EXACTLY what a TSA agent said to do, and to do it immediately? Have you ever asked a question that one of them did not like. Congratulations. You have “interfered with the duties of a federal officer,” which is a felony punishable up to 20 years in federal prison. If you were not prosecuted, it is because the authorities at the time did not see any benefit to making an example of you.

It is that easy, my friends. Today, federal prosecutors target whom they will, and then they decide later how to find a “crime” that fits the political situation. On the sidelines, there are plenty of cheerleaders, whether at Fox News of MSNBC or on the Daily Kos or Michelle Malkin or wherever, depending on who is targeted, indicted, and ultimately convicted.

And as Congressman Ron Paul recently warned, “In a free society, we are supposed to know the truth. When truth becomes treason, we are in big trouble.”

War is Peace
Ignorance is Strength
Freedom is Slavery…

Debt is Wealth
Truth is Treason

Are we there yet? I believe so. It may not be full-blown, in-your-face (unless you attempt to board a flight at any one of many US airports) but the groundwork is solidly in place. Today it’s like the scratchy tickle at the back of your throat that makes you wonder if you’re coming down with a cold. One day in the not so distant future, if we do nothing to stop it, we will wake up to find that tickle turned into a deadly flu. And then it will be too late for many of us.

One Giant Rez

January 6, 2009

The following article by William N. Grigg is lengthy but well worth your time to read. The historical background is not only interesting, it may be your blueprint for survival in an uncertain future. This is highly recommended reading.

One Giant Rez

What’s happening in my country is also happening in your country…. You don’t even know it, but you’re the Indians of the 21st Century, and that’s very sad.” – Russell Means, Indian Activist and Facilitator of the newly created Independent Republic of Lakota

A century after Wounded Knee, the same American Leviathan that had starved the Sioux into submission imposed a murderous embargo of Iraq that would last for more than a decade and kill hundreds of thousands of children. After using starvation and the denial of medical necessities to soften up the Iraqis, the Empire – already bogged down in Afghanistan — launched an invasion Iraq.

And as Scott Horton of AntiWarRadio points out, wherever the Empire deploys its legions abroad, the territory not under imperial control is referred to as “Indian country.” With entirely unwarranted optimism, most Americans assume that this only applies abroad. But every once in a while – as at Ruby Ridge or Waco – the Empire offers a bloody reminder that Wounded Knee remains the official template for dealing with any resistance, foreign or domestic.

In a fascinating interview with Scott Horton, Indian activist Russell Means describes how the American Indian Reservation System has been the incubator for totalitarian social engineering programs both here and abroad. The subjugation of the American Indian, he warns, provided the model for the ongoing dispossession of the American middle class.

As the financial system implodes, inhabitants of our de-industrialized country are having what remains of our wealth confiscated in order to serve the interests of the most corrupt elements of the ruling elite. The sky is thick with portents of impending military rule in order to suppress any organized resistance to this unprecedented plunder.

We will know that the Wounded Knee option is on the table when our rulers demand of us what they required of the conquered Sioux: The surrender of our personal firearms.

It is a glorious fact that America’s private gun owners possess more firearms than the combined armies and police forces of the entire world. It is that fact, and perhaps it alone, that explains why the Regime hasn’t succeeded — yet — in transforming our country into one giant Rez. We should never assume that this cannot change, in a hurry.
