Proof Of A U.S. Police State

February 11, 2013 by Bob Livingston

America has fast descended into a police state. The trouble is that we want to believe in the rule of law and the system that alleges to support and enforce it. But when reality collides with illusion, it is too late. No matter how bad things seem, we always think that times will get better and that government will do the right thing.

Only a few people left Germany in the early 1930s. They could clearly see the evolving tyranny. Many who stayed thought that things would not get so bad or that times would get better. They suffered from normalcy bias, a form of cognitive dissonance. They paid.
The wisdom today is in being able to see what is happening and having the vision to discern what is going to happen. Sorry. Anyone who still believes in the illusion of the rule of law will not see reality until it’s too late to do what is necessary to survive and keep their assets.

Today, the rule of law is what the 1 percent (the government) says it is. The government holds the police power and the military power. Its main purpose is to be the silent force to contain the population.

The population in the United States is well-armed. That fact does not escape the 1 percent. That is why the 1 percent is so eager to find a basis upon which to justify disarming the people. The armed populace is all that stands between the people and full-blown tyranny.

We have entered the last days of the fiat regime. It is evidenced by a falling confidence in government and the government’s stepped-up oppression of the people. This fact continues to be hidden by the mainstream media, which is under the control of the government.
The vast majority refuse to see or admit the regime is failing and descending into totalitarianism. They cite the fact that Americans are free to worship, free to travel, free to work, free to express themselves and free to vote as evidence that America remains free. But there are many signs that America is not far removed from tyranny seen in the former Soviet Union and the depths of Mao-ruled Chinese empire.

The state, meaning the apparatus of government, is “the system” that controls the American people.
Most people foolishly believe that they control the political system through elections. Little do they know that the government and the corporate state own and control the state and, through it, the people. This fact is kept invisible through constant conditioning of the public mind. There has never been any more sophisticated propaganda than in the United States today. No serious issues are ever discussed on national media.

The nature of government and the nature of people put them at natural enmity. Everything that the government is and has, it must extract from the people. It takes so much that it cannot disclose how much. The state and all that it has comes from the production and savings of the people by taxation and inflation.

If there is constant enmity and actually silent war between the State and the people, why is there no physical conflict? The answer is because of constant deceptive propaganda and the fact that the process is gradual over a long period of time. Gradualism clouds reality. Gradualism fogs the mind and suppresses rebellion. Rulers know this.

The elected elites know the proper code words to use to deceive the unthinking populace. Any and every law, no matter how oppressive, can be sold to the people by invoking these words. The Constitutionality of these laws does not matter and is not discussed. The court system does not help. All major legal decisions since the United States became a nation have been in favor of the government.
The Internet has thrown a wrench into the cogs that run the government propaganda machine and suppress the people. Information is now available that was once hidden or manipulated in favor of the state. The wall of propaganda has been breached.

This has thrown the elites off their game. Where they preferred to continue with their glacial march toward full-blown tyranny, an awakening populace has recognized the stepped-up oppression and has begun to push back. The physical conflict that had been so long avoided seems almost inevitable.

It’s obvious the American regime is preparing for it:
President Barack Obama’s regime has invented “legal” grounds to justify assassinating American citizens with drones. So far, three Americans have been executed without trial, including a 16-year-old from Colorado. This is mission creep far beyond what little George W. Bush began and Congress enabled with the false “war on terror” and the 4th Amendment-nullifying USA Patriot Act of 2001 (since extended).

2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow, Ph.D., who is noted for his work saving thousands of babies in China from certain death through the country’s one-child policy, claims in a Facebook post that a military member and “hero” who everyone would recognize confided in him that Obama is using as a litmus test of military leadership that involves their willingness to fire on U.S. citizens and is removing those who say they will not.

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered another 21.6 million bullets to add to the 1.6 billion it has bought in the last year. Before the order, DHS had more than enough bullets to shoot every U.S. citizen four times and keep hundreds of millions of rounds in reserve. For perspective, during the height of the Iraq war, U.S. soldiers were using 5.5 million rounds per month.

The immigration reform legislation currently under discussion would place many more drones into U.S. airspace to spy on citizens along the border and within the 100 mile border zone over which DHS claims jurisdiction. It also calls for biometric ID cards maintained by the government at considerable expense — and no doubt wrought with considerable problems and shortcomings — that would be necessary to secure employment and perform other interactions with government functionaries and bureaucracies.

Police officers are teaming with National Guard and other U.S. military units to carry out training exercises that resemble military invasions on U.S. soil in violation of Posse Comitatus.

The Obama regime aided by a complicit Congress passed into law just more than one year ago the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which gives the regime the power to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens without habeas corpus.

Police across the country are becoming more militant and more militarized. Almost daily now are media reports of cops training their weapons on children, tazing and arresting them in schools, and shooting down civilians in their homes during no-knock warrant executions.

The surveillance state is growing more intrusive by the day. Police now have scanners that can peer beneath our clothes and in our cars and homes on street corners and in mobile units. Cameras and audio recording devices are everywhere.

High Schools students are being required to carry microchipped cards that record their whereabouts and to submit hair samples for mandatory drug testing.

Lawyers are being arrested for informing people of their rights.

Police officers are accompanying electric workers to enforce installation of so-called “smart meters” on houses that have the capability of spying on homeowners and supplying the state with terabytes of data on day-to-day activities. This opens the homeowner up to abuse from state enforcers and identity theft from thieves.

The elite behind the scenes count on the ignorance of the American people — who have been dumbed down with drugs, tobacco, alcohol, debauchery, a craze for national sports, instant gratification, debt and no rule of law — to ignore these and the many other loses of freedoms as they advance their agenda to confiscate all the world’s wealth and enslave the populace.
How long will it continue before the pushback commences?

    It is 1984. It is true people are following leaders who slowly remove their freedom for the illusion of security. Authority groups and holding places are being created without informing the public. Our once free media is now controlled. The internet is the only thing left in certain sites. When our elected officials turn on the very people who elected them none will admit any wrong doing. All for the price of a cell phone.

    I've been giving law and order some serious thought in the last few weeks. Law appears to be more about financial gain for the wielders of it than it is about truth or justice.

    America has been dumbed down big time. Another problem is, in liberals states, progressive MSM dominates so most of those people never learn what is really going on in the world especially at national level.

    Agree 100%. You haven't seen anything yet. Just wait and see what they do when our financial system goes over the financial cliff into run-a-way inflation with our $16.5+ Trillion Dollar National Debt and growing every day.

    This is a very good but boring read something I expect to see from the paranoid right. It is the same baloney that the paranoid left was spouting during the administrations of Reagan, Bush1 and Bush 2. Remember the screams that Reagan would destroy the world or about Bush 1's New World Order? The screams by the left about the impending doom by the appointed usurper Bush 2 with the Patriot Act? We are still waiting, aren't we?
    A totalitarian regime...... to gain power has to have the consent of the people. Hitler did it, Stalin did it. Their nightmares began with speeches and popular drives of Nationalism, Patriotic Fever and a Duty to the Motherland/Fatherland/Homeland. They came to power with cheers, pride and support from the people. There was no elite, these nightmarish leaders came to power saying they were of the people and felt for the common man to fight against the elite/proletariat/monarchy. They claimed they were doing all that they were doing for the national safety and defense. The next step in gaining power is the demonetization of a particular class/group/belief or nationality.
    These people come to power with claims that they know what the founding fathers wanted, what a religious belief says or on the simple continuous feed of fear propaganda.

    Americans are an independent bunch. Remember Americans for the most part are decedents of the rejects, opposition groups, criminals and those of servitude bondage and people seeking a better life from around the world. There is an independent streak in us that is most uniquely American. American Exceptionalism if you want. Only the Australians come close to us as a society and look at their lineage. We are also a very well armed independent group of free men protected by a military of free men. Americans are bonded together through the blood of our forefathers and while we may look like a prairie of independent minds we become a rabid pack of badgers if attacked.

    America's government is a huge monolith that for what ever reason moves slow. It regulates mostly to nanny its citizens because somewhere along the way to many did not want to live in a feudal society and saw government as a guiding hand. There has always been a state of paranoia from one group or another over the history of this nation. That paranoia spilled over in the 1860's and it took four years and over half a million lives to calm it down again. The current paranoia over the current temporary resident of the White House is no different then at any other time. We will all get through this and move on to the next idiot/usurper/tyrant/dictator... nut or any of the thousands of labels that can be slapped on whoever by some worried group.

    Abraham Lincoln said;
    " At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

    The worrisome paranoia hasn't changed only the time it is in has.

    The push back will not commence until the masses are cold and hungry. Warm, well fed and comfortable people tend to avoid conflicts if possible.
