Patriot Act

Patriot Act... and the worst corruption in modern times... and did you know the neocons have been accumulating funds for Jeb for six years in an attempt to extend the dynasty? Oppose it and go to the Gulag!

There is no question in our minds that Vice President Dick Cheney believes he is the reincarnation of Herman Goring. 9/11 was the elitist version of the Reichstag fire and it was the operative event that was used to introduce forms of dictatorship that had been formulated years before when Mr. Cheney was Secretary of Defense under George H. W. Bush. The vehicle for total control of the American people was the USA Patriot Act and following legislation.

After that was accomplished military and intelligence operations were taken out of the hands of government and into the control of private and public corporations. This was the transition to the corporatist fascist state. After George H. W. Bush was defeated for a second presidential term Mr. Cheney took over as CEO of Halliburton. Later he and George P. Schultz, who was the CEO of Bechtel, formed the Bush-Cheney team for the presidency. We know what transpired and after in office with Cheney crony, Don Rumsfeld the lies began and at the same time military and intelligence was in part turned over to Halliburton, Bechtel, Carlyle and other crony companies. This is when this triumvirate took over the entire American intelligence operation.

What has followed is the worst corruption in modern times. Not only the stealing, but also the spying on Americans, privatized torture, abuse and murder and holding people without charges for years and kidnapping them off the streets of the world in violation of the sovereign laws of other countries. This is what murderous dictators do.

Through globalization, private mercenary armies, private secret police forces all run by firms such as Halliburton and Bechtel, anyone who speaks out is hunted down and silenced or murdered. Via globalization, which is the elimination of the nation-state, power is transferred from the nation state to elitist transnational corporate cartels. The system becomes totally predatory. First it’s the elimination of whole industries, then public investments, then governments and then the world. The table is set by the creation of perpetual war for perpetual peace. The masses are eventually against the wars but are powerless to stop them. The wars are theatre devised as distraction to keep the citizens focused on what is a stage play, as the globalists steal your freedom, livelihood and your entire way of life. This is to be the recreation of Imperial Rome via the financer oligarchy and the control of America’s vast military machine. A world system of interlocking syndicates, which rule people, not governments. This is how we know financial collapse is in process. It has been used many times before albeit unsuccessfully. This is a threat to civilized life, as we have known it. Justice is first perverted and then destroyed. You cannot defend your rights against the state if they own the system. Power is being transferred from the nation-state to the international financial interests. This is not only treason; it is the destruction of our laws and culture. This has to be reversed and the only way to affect that legally is to take over Congress in the next election, voting almost all of the participants out of office and then impeaching our President and Vice President. If we are unsuccessful in doing that, then the only resort left will be revolution.

One of the top priorities on the Illuminists’ agenda is the privatization of national security, better known as the Princeton Project. It is to affect the expansion of the privatization of military functions through private military companies, or private mercenary armies.

This is funded in part by the Ford Foundation and is co-chaired by George Schultz of Bechtel and Felix Rohatyn, a powerful financier and strong backer of Israel. This group is attempting to eliminate the sovereign nation-state, by outsourcing to multinational corporations, virtually all national security and military functions, including all non-combat as well as core combat functions of the military itself.

This transfer in power, privatization, will be justified by the perpetual global war on terrorism. It will be readily acceptable to the public because their children won’t be drafted into the military. Those who choose the profession will eliminate the need for that. This process has already begun as quasi-private bands of commandos are sent around the world with a license to kill, and domestically to spy on American citizens. The personnel for these operations come from Delta Force, Navy Seals, Green Berets and other special military units. They are given temporary leave to work for private contractors and later can return to active duty with no loss of rank or service time. When killed on mission they are not counted among US casualties. In finality there is no difference between military and mercenary. This marks America’s slide back into feudalism. Needless to say, the public doesn’t have a clue that this is what is being done to them.

This past week we saw the first trial balloon on the campaign of Jeb Bush to become the next Republican nominee for president. The neocons have been accumulating funds for Jeb for six years in an attempt to extend the dynasty. We are sure the voting fix is being prepared as well. Jeb is far more dangerous than his lunatic brother because he’s smarter. George’s comment was prepared. These people only speak when it is to their advantage. This was no off-the-cuff remark. The neocon Gestapo marches on. A Cleveland woman was manhandled and charged with two felonies for trying to display anti-Bush posters. She was then jailed in a psychiatric unit, which was highly unusual and outrageous. The judge said she suffered from mental problems and that her opposition to Bush makes her delusional. Off to the gulag Soviet style. Only in America.

Former NSA staffer Russell Tice will testify to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week that not only do employees at the agency believe the activities they are being asked to perform are unlawful, but that what has been disclosed so far is only the tip of the iceberg. He says former NSA head Gen. Michael Hayden, Bush’s nominee to be the next CIA Director, oversaw more illegal activity that has yet to be disclosed. Tice will tell the NSA conducted illegal and unconstitutional surveillance of US citizens while he was there with the knowledge of Hayden. We suspect he’ll go into the Echelon program, which is a massive system designed to intercept virtually all electronic communications throughout the world. Phone calls, fax traffic and e-mails are analyzed despite laws in every country banning such activity, including the US. The system was developed in 1947, and was taken over by the NSA in 1953. The operations at Fort Meade worked from Menwith Hill in England. It was used during the Cold War era to keep an eye on the Soviet Union. We also had stations for all kinds of electronic intercepts throughout the world, we know we were there and we were involved in it. We can only remember of two instances in which we were aware of spying on others than the Soviet Union and its satellites - once on our own field units and other times on British and French aircraft.

Echelon was designed primarily for non-military targets: governments, organizations, and business in every country. It can also be considered industrial espionage. The analysis was based on key works like money, stocks, drugs, etc. We did not work on Echelon but we knew all about it. Echelon concentrated on foreign nations up until 1985 and it then started monitoring Americans.

As we all now know, tens of millions of phone calls by US citizens and others in the US have been monitored by the government since 2001. The phone companies now must answer for this invasion of privacy and explain their willingness to violate the Constitutional protections of the Fourth Amendment, in addition to violating provisions of the 1978 law governing spying on US citizens. The bottom line is our government is at war with its citizens and we have our own government as our enemy. The corporate fascist interests that run our country want to establish unilateral control over everyone and everything, and if you expose the truth about what they are doing you are the enemy. We are the victims of state terrorism.
