Why Is It Necessary For The Federal Government To Turn The United States Into A Prison Camp?

There has been no society in the history of the world that has ever been 100% safe.  No matter how much money the federal government spends on "homeland security", the truth is that bad things will still happen.  Our world is a very dangerous place and it is becoming increasingly unstable.  The federal government could turn the entire country into one giant prison camp, but that would still not keep us safe.  It is inevitable that bad stuff will happen in life.  But we have a choice.  We can choose to live in fear or we can choose to live as free men and women.  Our forefathers intended to establish a nation where liberty and freedom would be maximized.  But today we are told that we have to give up our liberties and our freedoms and our privacy for increased security.  But is such a trade really worth it?  Just think of the various totalitarian societies that we have seen down throughout history.  Have any of them ever really thrived?  Have their people been happy?  Unfortunately, the U.S. federal government has decided that the entire country needs to be put on lock down.  Nearly everything that we do today is watched and tracked, and personal privacy is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.  Many of the things that George Orwell wrote about in 1984 are becoming a reality, and that is a very frightening thing.  The United States is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Sadly, we are rapidly becoming the exact opposite of that.

I don't know about you, but I never signed up to live in North Korea.  When I was growing up I was taught that repressive regimes such as North Korea are "the bad guys" and that America is where "the good guys" live.

So why do we want to be just like North Korea?

When they put in the naked body scanners at U.S. airports and started having TSA agents conduct "enhanced pat-downs" of travelers, I decided that I was not going to fly anymore unless absolutely necessary.

Then I heard about how "random bag checks" were being conducted at Metro train stations in the Washington D.C. area, and I was glad that I was no longer taking the train into D.C. anymore.

But now the TSA is showing up everywhere.  Down in Houston, undercover TSA agents and police officers will now "ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior."

So now I have another thing to add to my list of things that I can't do anymore.

No more riding buses for me.

But the truth is that you can't escape this expanding security grid no matter how hard you try.

In fact, TSA "VIPR teams" conduct approximately 8,000 "unannounced security screenings" every year at bus terminals, train stations, ports and highway rest stops throughout the United States.

Look, every society needs some level of security.  There are always bad guys out there that want to harm innocent people.

But in the United States we must demand that those in charge of our security do their jobs in a way that does not compromise our dignity, our liberties or our freedoms.

Does having TSA thugs touch the private parts of old women and young children before they get on their flights keep us any safer?

Of course not.

But it does move our country in a very dangerous direction.

The reality is that this "Big Brother control grid" that is being constructed all around us is expanding in a thousand different ways.

For example, a new bill before the U.S. Congress would require black box data recorders to be installed in all new vehicles starting in 2015.  These black box data recorders will be able to constantly transmit data about everything that your car is  doing to the government and to the insurance companies.  The following is from a recent article by Eric Peters....

And naturally, they – the government, insurance companies – will be able to track your every move, noting (and recording) where you’ve been and when. This will create a surveillance net beyond anything that ever existed previously. Some will not sweat this: After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, why worry? Except for the fact that, courtesy of almost everything we do being either “illegal” or at least “suspicious” we all have a great deal to hide. The naivety of the Don’t Worry, it’s No Big Deal crowd is breathtaking. Did the average Soviet citizen also “not have anything to hide,” and hence why worry?

But the last possibility is probably the creepiest possibility: EDRs tied into your car’s GPS will give them – the government and its corporate **** ******* (edited for language) – literal physical control over (hack) “your” vehicle. This is not conspiracy theorizing. It is technological fact. Current GM vehicles equipped with the same technology about to be mandated for every vehicle can be disabled remotely. Just turned off. All the OnStar operator has to do is send the appropriate command over the GPS to your car’s computer, which controls the engine. It is one of the features touted by OnStar – of course, as a “safety” feature.

In the future, it will be used to limit your driving – for the sake of “energy conservation” or perhaps, “the environment.” It will be the perfect, er, vehicle, for implementing U.N. Agenda 21 – the plan to herd all of us formerly free-range tax cattle into urban feedlots. So much easier to control us this way. No more bailing out to the country or living off the grid – unless you get there (and to your work) by walking.

Even when you are sitting at home you are still being watched and monitored in countless ways.

For example, every single call you make on your cell phone is intercepted and monitored by the government.

Your Internet activity is tracked and monitored by a whole host of government agencies as well.  If you doubt this, just read this article.

Now CISPA would expand government surveillance of the Internet even further.  The following description of CISPA comes from the Electronic Frontier Foundation website....

CISPA creates an exception to all privacy laws to permit companies to share our information with each other and with the government in the name of cybersecurity…. CISPA’s ‘information sharing’ regime allows the transfer of vast amounts of data, including sensitive information like internet use history or the content of emails, to any agency in the government including military and intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency or the Department of Defense Cyber Command. Once in government hands, this information can be used for any non-regulatory purpose so long as one significant purpose is for cybersecurity or to protect national security.

Frightening stuff, eh?

I want you to imagine a scenario for a moment.  Imagine that the government assigned two "watchers" to you that followed you everywhere you went and stared directly into your face the entire time.

Would you feel comfortable?

Why not?

You don't have anything to hide, do you?

Well, of course the truth is that none of us would like having our privacy constantly invaded.  It is not pleasant to constantly feel like you are being watched.

That is why all of these new "security measures" are so alarming.  A system is being set up where all of us are being constantly watched and monitored 24 hours a day.

And most Americans have no idea how fast the transition to full martial law could potentially be.

Barack Obama recently updated an old executive order that has been around for decades that would enable him to take charge of all food, all energy, all health resources and all transportation resources in the United States with the stroke of a pen.  This new update would allow him to do it even in "non-emergency" situations.

The following is what U.S. Representative Kay Granger recently had to say about this executive order....

This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas – even farm equipment – can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries.  The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill "labor requirements" for the purposes of "national defense."  There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.

Later on in her letter, Representative Granger even used the phrases "martial law" and "government takeover" to describe the power that Barack Obama potentially has under this executive order....

It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation – especially during times of peace.  This type of Martial Law imposes a government takeover on U.S. citizens that is typically reserved for national emergencies, not in a time of relative peace.

Do you trust Barack Obama with that kind of power?

Unfortunately, considering the really bad decisions that all of our government officials regularly make, it is really hard to trust any of them to do the right thing at this point.

The American people need to let their voices be heard on these issues.  If not, the federal government will continue to strip away our privacy, our liberties and our freedoms until everything is gone.

Do you want your children to grow up in a country that has been turned into a giant prison camp and that more closely resembles North Korea than it does the nation that our forefathers originally founded?

If not, please do what you can to speak out against these abuses.

The truth is that the federal government does not really even care about our national security anyway.

If they did, they would secure our borders.  Just today I read that the National Guard is withdrawing 900 troops from the U.S.-Mexico border.  Our border security is already a total joke and now it is going to be even worse.

Over the past several decades, tens of millions of people have crossed that border illegally.  Every single day, terrorists, drug dealers, gang members, sexual predators and a whole host of other "bad guys" could be crossing that border and we would never even know about it because we aren't doing anything to stop it.

For nearly 60 years, the U.S. government has successfully protected the border between South Korea and North Korea, but the U.S. government flatly refuses to protect our own borders.

Until the federal government decides to do what the U.S. Constitution requires them to do and start protecting our borders, then the federal government should not be asking any of us to make a single sacrifice in the name of "security".

The truth is that we can have a reasonable level of security in this nation without giving up the liberties and the freedoms that millions of Americans have shed their blood to protect.

We do not need to turn the United States into a giant prison camp.  America is supposed to be the land of the free, and we need to work hard to get that dream back.

    Too many people operate under the “assumption of normalacy”.

As though everything was still normal.

    The current problems were caused because “freedom and liberty” were maximized.

    @the Editor

    “Our forefathers intended to establish a nation where liberty and freedom would be maximized.”

    Well…are you really SURE of that?

    I’m just reading Howard Zinn, “A Peoples History of the United States” – amazing reading, even for someone (like me), who has not been brought up with the great american myths and memes of the “Revolution”, the “Founding Fathers” and the “Pursuit of happiness”.

    However, especially Chapter 4 + 5 might be worth reading for you – it might present a different angle, just to think about.

    “The Constitution, then, illustrates the complexity of the American system: that it serves the interests of a wealthy elite, but also does enough for small property owners, for middle-income mechanics and farmers, to build a broad base of support. The slightly prosperous people who make up this base of support are buffers against the blacks, the Indians, the very poor whites. They enable the elite to keep control with a minimum of coercion, a maximum of law-all made palatable by the fanfare of patriotism and unity.”

    (Chapter 5, “A Kind of Revolution”)

    Well…to come back to your current article: it seems, since the base of “slightly prosperous people”, which shielded the elites from the impoverished poor, are dwindling, here comes “Plan B”: MAXIMUM COERCION

    “I don’t know about you, but I never signed up to live in North Korea.”

    Oh yes, you have. Remember those days when you put your hand to where you think your heart is and sing the national anthem? You probably do it every morning before school and going to work just like the North Koreans. And then again for good measure in every movie from Independence Day to You’ve Got Mail.

    And finally before you go to bed.

    What is wrong with our leaders that we elected to represent us, vowing to uphold our CONSTUTION and our freedoms, to let this guy run shipshod over our country, stealing our freedom from us.An executive order can be overturned with our checks and balance system. we need to send this guy and his henchmen, plus congress people and senetors packing that do not uphold our constitution. And one other thing, clean out the universitys and collages of professors committing subversave action against our country.

    Why the focus on Obama’s power with these laws? It should be more accurately defined as any sitting President. Obama may or may not serve 4 more years, but what about the Nut that replaces him? I see a 78 year old man fighting for his re-election in Utah and wonder how many Congrssman and Senators are too old and too out of touch with their constituents. I do not even need to address how much they have enriched themselves after election and further alienating themselves. Double standards should not exist for elected bodies and need to stop. A congressman or Senator does a little insider trading and makes themselves a millionaire and it is legal. Martha Stewart (already a millionaire) does something similar and congress hypocritically crucifies her? Same rules for ALL! This is a single example, but there are more. The American people need to take back their country from corporate control. All of this surveillance issues are driven by the need for profit and a willing purchasing Goverment willing to write laws to mandate the use of this technology. REMEMBER the law makers you send to Washington are behind this. You send a President to Washington once every 4 years to serve no more than 8 total years, but some lawmakers in Washington go there and never leave. Byrd and Thurman both died serving well past the effective years. They either do thier jobs or throw them out. Go to work at your job for the next month and everyday do only what serves you and not your employer and see how long you have your job. THEY work for us! We have the power to change the direction just find out who is voting for what and do not let them continue.
    It is up to us to stop the loss of Freedom. The voice of the many can drown out the voice of the few. The few voices in Washington are getting heard for all the wrong reasons. They are militarizing all Police forces gradually by the path they chose. Even University Police forces are using the benefits in their own departments. Why not it is encouraged. When someone offers something for free or heavily subsidized most will take it human nature, but not look at the long term cost that is attached to it. Vote for a free America NOW!

    Life in America has become government against the people.

    We are long past the point where people can vote to restore freedom. Most of the politicians who occupy the seats of power meet the definition of sociopath. Most have been bought and paid for, and represent not the people, but themselves and those who give them money. Government, corporations, and other special interest have colluded to pass laws that rig the markets so that a huge middle class destroying transfer of wealth is occurring.

    It is a natural response for people to rebel against this system of plunder and control, and of course those in government know this and are obviously preparing to deal with any uprising. It is inevitable that revolution or civil war will eventually result, because that is what happens when people have been subjugated. My bet is that we will not get past 2020 without the first shot being fired, in what will become the historic equivalent of the 1775 confrontation on Lexington Green and 1861 confrontation at Ft. Sumter.

    Nowhere to run; nowhere to hide.

    The U.S. has about 5% of the world’s population and about 25% of the world’s prison population.

    No matter what side of the issue you are on, that should be a giant red flag. But with our big corporate media and government, who makes money off the prison-industrial complex, you won’t hear a peep.

    There is a very GOOD reason WHY people are today much more AFRAID to PROTEST and CHALLENGE the bastards who have the “law” on their side.
    If you stop and think about the time period after the 9/11 incident, we, the AMERICAN people, as well as the entire world were told, BY THE ASSHOLES BUSH, CHEYNEY AND RUMSFELD THAT WE WERE “EITHER FOR US OR AGAINST US.” Because the American people were all feeling pseudo lovey with each other and fanatically patriotic, the thugs in the CIA, FBI, military, FEMA, Homeland security, all began to threaten, detain, arrest, or otherwise make people disappear or be held in detention for whatever period of time they wished to do so. I am NOT speaking here of truely dangerous islamist radicals but rather I speak of honest, hard working, law abiding decent Americans who simply voiced an alternate opinion or a disagreement with our government. There were those of us who clearly knew that the invasion of IRAQ was a scam, perped on the American public, the soldiers who serve, and IRAQ. Before you discount this statement I would challenge you to google the American Security Archives………a nonprofit organization who has many millions of declassified government documents, obtained through FOI act. You can then look at what is available regarding IRAQ. You will clearly see that the attack on IRAQ was a very strong agenda item for Bush at the time he came into office. PLEASE don’t believe me……rather, go read for yourself.
    To continue my post……I will say that I believe that most Americans believed that those who disappeared or were otherwise harassed or abused by our government….deserved it, after all, they were probably not being patriotic. Hence, our thugs in government realized that they could get away with just about anything, under the GUISE of making our homeland secure. Well folks, now America has EXACTLY what AMERICANS were willing to have perped upon those who dared to speak up….an entire decade ago.
    The question now is this………..how do we tell the government that we are NOT going to tolerate this **************** ABUSE any longer?
    I would suggest that people begin working within their own states, getting petitions signed that demand an end to this military state we are now living in. AND, once you have many millions of signatures you MUST make EVERYONE RUNNING FOR OFFICE SIGN a commitment to STOP THIS ABUSE. If they won’t sign, then we make certain that they ARE NOT elected………..PERIOD! and, as part of our demands we must insist that any candidate running for office must sign an agreement with the people of their state that they will resign from office if the people of their state believe that they continue to support this police state.
    MAKE IT HAPPEN FOLKS!!!!!

  • Georgiaboy61

    Why does DHS need 450 million hollow-point .40 caliber rounds? There are several possible answers, all of which should concern patriots. First, DHS is expecting trouble and is arming up. Do they know something we do not? Second, DHS has been instructed by Obama to buy up vast quantities of ammo to deny it to normal Americans exercising their 2nd amendment rights. An indirect form of guin control, by controlling the supply of ammunition. Third, Obama spoke of wanting a civilian security force as well armed and equipped as the military. If he has co-opted DHS, perhaps they are to be his brownshirts. Another alternative, c.f. Operation Gunwalker, is to funnel arms and ammunition purchased with taxpayer dollars, to proxies – New Black Panthers, etc. – designated to act in the same role. Forth, these arms and ammunition supplies are to disappear into the black hole of the Fed Govt. and later turn up in the hands of Obama political cronies to be sold on the black market, used to supply neo-communist revolts, etc.

    these dirt bags are protecting terrorist groups operating in the U.S. and in our government. these people have committed high treason and will be dealt with along with all military and civilian police who embark on protecting this terror campaign with hamas, and the muslim brotherhood, who they are protecting.
    our Dept. of justice along with all federal law enforcement agencies of ours have committed sedition and high crimes, there will be no jury trial for these crimes, they will be hung according to the laws of the land , when and if the time ever arrives. get that, no trial by jury.

    Hey George…. you are correct. Temporary security doesn’t exist. I can remember the temporary sales tax in Arizona. It started out at 1/2 of 1%, and the last I heard it was over 12% – 35 years ago. Everytime the government passes a new law, it takes away, litttle at a time, your freedom.

    It seems everything is OK when it is someone else who is being victimized by the neo-nazi police state. Only when the police state steps on your toes does the thought occur how rampant the tyranny is. This sick, satanic, system can only be changed through revolution. Many feel Ron Paul can save the Republic. I like Ron Paul, voted for him, but the time of the ballot box is over. Do I believe the people will rise up and violently confront the tyranny? No! The government will bring the violence to us. The writing on the wall is as plain as the nose on your face. This year? Next? Only they know, but it is coming!

    America has done something no other country has ever done. Not once, but twice, the U.S. has rolled over its bankrupcy.This happens every 100 years or so.
    When this happens there are alien interests that are hard at work to gain control and disrupt the United States from staying united.
    The first time Briton helped stage the civil war. The second time communists and facists tried to use the Great Depression for their advantage.
    We are now in the third rollover and we all need to be very careful of any movement that we support, as there are usurpers trying to leverage all things in an attempt to break the United States.
    For example, there is a constant effort to start race wars and class wars. Neither of these will benefit the American people and would divide the nation while those that want to profit from such to swoop in.
    The best advice is to go about your life take care of your family and your neighbor and survival is assured.
    Taking part in Tea Party or Occupy could be your own individual demise.
