In Naomi Wolf’s book, “The End of America, A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot”, she outlines ten steps that are used to seize and maintain power. They are:
1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
2. Create a gulag
3. Develop a thug caste
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
5. Harass citizens’ groups
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
8. Control the press
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law
The concept is based on the September 2006 military coup in Thailand but have been happening here. For more information read her blog at the Huffington Post:
Dr. Lawrence Britt after examing fascist regimes from the last 75 years has found 14 defining characteristics common to each:
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
4. Supremacy of the Military
5. Rampant Sexism
6. Controlled Mass Media
7. Obsession with National Security
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined
9. Corporate Power is Protected
10. Labor Power is Suppressed
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
14. Fraudulent Elections
Read Dr. Britt’s essay here If you are following along you will notice both lists have several items in common. For instance number one on Ms. Wolf’s list is “Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy” while it is expressed on Dr. Britt’s list as “Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause” (number 3). Which leads to Dissent equals treason
In the current situation, our country seems to be a country without individual rights. Police seem to mislead you into giving up your rights. We are told to be nice and compliant, but the reality is they are against you. They are trained to get you to give up your rights. Here is a video everyone needs to memorize. Remember, do not break the law, but know your rights!
BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF NOTICE FOR DISMISSAL FOR LACK OF JURISDICTION
The following has been used in at least three states (Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia) as a legal brief to support a demand for dismissal of charges of “driving without a license.” It is the argument that was the reason for charges being dropped, or for a “win” in court against the argument that free people can have their right to travel regulated by their servants.
The forgotten legal maxim is that free people have a right to travel on the roads which are provided by their servants for that purpose, using ordinary transportation of the day. Licensing cannot be required of free people, because taking on the restrictions of a license requires the surrender of a right. The driver’s license can be required of people who use the highways for trade, commerce, or hire; that is, if they earn their living on the road, and if they use extraordinary machines on the roads. In other words, if you are not using the highways for profit, you cannot be required to have a driver’s license. This brief or the right it demonstrates is no substitute for either being safe on the road or for learning the subject of rights versus regulations thoroughly before attempting to use or act upon this information.

As hard as it is for those of us in Law enforcement to believe, there is no room for speculation in these court decisions. The American citizen does indeed have the inalienable right to use the roadways unrestricted in any manner as long as they are not damaging or violating property or rights of
Government, in requiring the people to file for “drivers Licenses, vehicle registrations, mandatory insurance, and demanding they stop for vehicle inspections, DUI/DWI roadblocks etc. without question, are “restricting”, and therefore violating, the Peoples common law right to travel.
Is this a new legal interpretation on this subject of the right to travel? Apparently not. The American Citizens and Lawmen Association in conjunction with The U.S. Federal Law Research Center are presently involved in studies in several areas involving questions on constitutional law. One of the many areas under review is the area of “Citizens right to travel.” In an interview a spokesmen stated: “Upon researching this subject over many months, substantial case law has presented itself that completely substantiates the position that the “right to travel unrestricted upon the nations highways” is and has always been a fundamental right of every Citizen.”
We are still in a stuggle for our freedoms. Most people look at the day and see the weather, its good, its bad. For me, I still see the day for what is is, an opportunity to make change. I find myself getting into C-Span and watching congress debate. The more I watch, the more I find myself realizing that I may be like them. I care about what affects me and my values. For me to make any change I must get involved. This is what we should all do. If you really care about government, you may need to change your career. Its easy being a polititian from behind the counter at the fast food restarant.
How does skipping the long line at the airport sound? Too good to be true? Maybe. After a read in the “Rolling Stone” magazine an article titled “China’s All-Seeing Eye” by Naoni Klien, I discovered a few names of those who are behind the spying within the US. By understanding how technology is used in other countries, we can see how they could be used in our country.
“Fly Clear” is a program that will help you get through the airport screening faster. All you have to do is give your fingerprints and have your picture taken. Sounds so easy, lets just all get in line, or not?
The real company behind this convenient service is the same company that is helping the Chinese government to crack down on dissidents, such as Tibetan Monks, and human rights activist.
While helping break the Fourth Amendment right on illegal search and seizure, and ignoring legislation passed after Tiananmem Square in 1989. (A band from selling any products that can be used for “crime control or detection instruments or equipment”) one should question their motives of profit over human rights.
Mercenaries paid with our tax dollars opened fire on Iraqi civilians recently. They killed 8 people and shot 13 more.
“They are untouchable,” one private soldier told the Los Angeles Times. “They’ve shot up other private security contractors, Iraqi military, police and civilians.”1Now the Iraqi government has had enough, and has ordered Blackwater to stop work in the country. This morning the Iraqi Prime Minister demanded the U.S. use someone else to guard their VIP’s.2 Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has promised an investigation, but that’s not enough.
http://act.truemajorityaction.org/o/2/t/50/petition.jsp?petition_KEY=24Most of Blackwater’s work is guarding officials from the State Department. They are among the most high-profile mercenaries working in Iraq, but hardly the only ones. An astounding 120,000 “private security contractors” are in Iraq, 48,000 of them working as combat soldiers.3 They get paid far more than real soldiers, their deaths are not included in the official casualty counts, and they are essentially accountable to no one, according to state department officials.
This is still America. We can’t hire mercenaries to fire on civilians with no accountability.
Tell Sec. Rice to put an end to it, and follow the Iraqi government’s demand that Blackwater leave the country.
