Two truly mind-blowing developments:
First, the transformation of America, in less than a decade, into a police state-in-waiting. Second, the almost total lack of response from the public in general and their so-called representatives.
A police state-in-waiting might seem like going over the top, but it’s not. Here are just some, it’s by no means a comprehensive listing, just the ones that I consider most egregious.
() Purchases by the Department of Homeland Security
- 650 million rounds of .40 calibre hollow point ammunition. Now if you get hit by a .4 hollow-nose you won’t get up.
- an unknown amount of bullet resistant booths to be stationed at unannounced checkpoints throughout the country
- 140 million emergency rations
()The US military are training to take on crowds of American citizens in a time of crisis.
()The establishment of an internet ‘kill switch’ contingency plan and jamming of all non-government communications,
() Domestic spy drones in operation (Black Hawks hovering over Chicago recently)
()The new $2 billion one million sq. ft. high tech domestic data gathering centre in Utah
()And what about the National Defence Executive Reserve, which means your entire work history is now stored, aggregated and flagged in a national database and you can be called on at any time and forced into service for national security reasons at a government-run institution or labour camp:
() Meanwhile the TSA gropers expand into bus and train stations and even run checkpoints on highways
() A leaked U.S. Army document prepared for the Department of Defence contains shocking plans for “political activists” to be pacified by “PSYOP officers” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.
() Then there’s the presidential power to target American citizens for assassination found in the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA). This act also gives powers that can result in indefinitely detaining American citizens without charge or trial.
() Obama’s ‘Doomsday’ executive order (National Defense Resources Preparedness) allows the seizure of food, land, energy resources and skilled labourers. All the preppers’ goods and chattels can be seized by Executive Order. That’s all resources, not just those owned by large farms and businesses
()DHS have deployed a host of tools to not only monitor what is being posted online, but who is posting it, who their friends are, which sites they visit and what information they ‘like’ in particular.
“In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defence”, whatever they decide that is.” (Infowars)
In other words, a classical Police State.
Yet there’s been comparatively little reaction from the MSM or from citizenry at large. There seems to be a complete lack of awareness of just how draconian these measures are. I suppose it’s the old story: It doesn’t affect me now so there’s not a problem. And now if you excuse me, America’s Got Talent is coming on.
