Top three casualties of terrorism

   Posted by: Rasputin    in Political Opinion

When asked to define pornography Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “I don’t know what it is, but I’ll know it when I see it”. The same principle applies to terrorism, you may not know how to define it but you can and should know it when you see it. It is not always something as dramatic as planes flying into buildings; often the threat of violence is just as effective as the violence itself.

I have a very broad view of terrorism. I don’t limit terrorist acts to Islamic Jihadists. Governments, religious groups or political organizations, almost every group has used terrorism in one form or another, sometimes unknowingly. It is up to us identify and resist the use of terror by any one at any time.

Recently the health care debate has driven the war on terror off the front page but that does not mean terrorism has gone away. Quite the opposite, it is increasing and becoming much more sophisticated. But this blog is not meant to frighten anyone, the more we worry about terrorism the more likely we are to be affected by it, I want to make you aware of what terrorism is so you can arm yourself against it – not with guns but with intelligence and courage. Remember, the first casualty of a terrorist campaign is common sense; the second trust, the third – freedom.

America is being Destroyed Part V

Set up an internal surveillance system
We also recommend the Generation Cobweb article: Fly Clear – Attacts on Freedom

Everything is in place now for government agencies to watch our each and every move. Some are evident – warrant less wiretapping, instituted by George W. Bush and preserved by Obama: Government opts for secrecy in wiretap suit. Then there is the Patriot Act which gives the government access to your medical records, tax records and information about the books you buy or borrow. This grossly misnamed Act also allows the government to break into your home and conduct secret searches without any notification, now or in the future.

Consider the curious case of Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby. Young Mr. Lundeby was detained for suspicion of making a bomb threat. Dan Boyce, a defense attorney and former U.S. attorney not connected to the Lundeby case stated, “They’re saying that ‘We feel this individual is a terrorist or an enemy combatant against the United States, and we’re going to suspend all of those due process rights because this person is an enemy of the United States”.

While brute force has long been a stock in trade for oppressive governments technology plays a big role in the perfection of a new big brother. Many of the techniques have been around for a long time. The British philosopher Jeremny Benthan in 1785 conceived a new type of prison he called the panopticon.

America is Being Destroyed Part IV

   Posted by: Rasputin    in America Series, Issues, Politics

In part one Laying the groundwork for the Fascist takeover of America, part two Creating an internal enemy and part three Creating a Gulag we saw how the government from Reagan to Obama has created internal and external enemies with several phony wars. Further we explored how the United States has prosecuted and imprisoned millions of enemy combatants aka American Citizens. In this installment we will look at the thug caste created to intimidate people and smother any protest before it even gets started.

Despots have long recognized the necessity of controlling the press. Some would argue it is not possible in a free society but not only is it possible it is an accomplished fact. Later in this series we will have a more in depth discussion of how a few companies control the press but for now be aware the two go hand in hand – control of the press and a thug caste.

Two unlikely allies, political conservatives and fundamental Christians have formed the American thug caste. Not the political conservatism championed by Barry Goldwater but Ronald Reagan’s corruption of it, nor the open forgiving religion of Billy Graham but the aberration preached by Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.

It’s Coming Together!!!

March 30, 2009!

We are in the very beginning of our end. We have talked about how we are headed to a world wide takeover by certain groups. *(If this is your first time at our sight, you have a lot of catching up to do, but unfortunately, not much time.)

We said that by 2015 there will be a world dictator, and by 2020 90% of the worlds population will be gone.We did not know how or what would be the cause. Please remember that one year before 9-11, these people said they needed as new “Pearl Harbor” so they could gain their objectives. and they created it.

August 1, 2008 the “Model State Emergency Heath Powers Act” passed, making mandatory inoculation and drug treatments for US citizens, (100 million HrN1 vaccines ordered, Nov 26,2007, deliverable August 2008). They create the problem and supply us with the answers!
We now see a possible real world problem that can allow the use of all those “concentration camps” that are in every state. It will not be the Jews this time, it will be for the sick. They will have a reason for martial law, loss of freedom, total Draconian power over the once free country, America.

America is being Destroyed III

   Posted by: Rasputin    in America Series, Issues, Politics

Part III. Creating a Gulag

The second item in Naomi Wolf’s book, “The End of America, A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot”, is “Create a gulag”. Thanks to step one, “Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy” creating a gulag is all but accomplished. The Bush administration created a worldwide network of ‘detainee’ camps. The most public Gulag is Guantanamo but it is not the only one.

One of the worst is Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan. Unlike Guantanamo prisoners at Bagram do not have the right of Habeas Corpus. Bagram is just the tip of the iceberg. Also used to ‘detain’ enemy combatants are navy ships4, jails in third world countries (where torture is legal) and military bases around the globe. From Gwynne Dyer ‘s article  Obama and the Gulag Archipelago

“Only 242 prisoners are still held at Guantanamo, but that is just the tip of an iceberg. There are thousands more held in legal black holes at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, in Iraq, Djibouti and the prison ships, at the US base on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, and in the countries where the Central Intelligence Agency has been out-sourcing the more severe forms of torture (notably Egypt, Morocco and Jordan).

An exact count of the detainees is impossible, because in many cases even their names are not known, but estimates run as high as 18,000 people. Some of them have been held for as much as seven years.”
