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

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

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.

    How many remember this? April 20, 1914: The Ludlow Massacre

    The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard on a tent colony of 1200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado on April 20, 1914.

    The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn has described the Ludlow Massacre as “the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history”. Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident. Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor laws and an eight-hour work day.

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

    What kind of statement is that? Do you think North Koreans “signed up” to live in North Korea? No, they were born there. They had no say in where they were birthed.

    • Kevin2

      But we weren’t born there and therefore it should require a sign up.

    A very well written article, thanks.

  • Benjik

    This is just most recent installment in the perpetual “State of Fear” the governing forces use to control the masses and generate huge amounts of profits for government and large corporations.

    The “State of Fear”, most commonly known as a Michael Crichton novel, is much more than a work of fiction. (Still a great read though!) The hypothesis points to national and global crises either fabricated or greatly exaggerated to control, manipulate and tax the general population into submission.

    There is some discussion on when the “State of Fear” tactic was first implemented here in the U.S. but the general conclusion was right around WW2.

    At first we were warned about communists infiltrating our borders, remember McCarthyism? That eventually morphed into the “Cold War”, which worked for several decades. “Acid Rain” was also introduced in that time period but failed to generate long-lasting publicity. The fall of a segregated Germany in the late 1980’s consequently put an official end to the Cold War, leaving a huge vacuum for the next “control policy”, enter “Global Warming”. Global Warming was a useful tactic to generate huge advances in governmental oversight, agencies and regulations, not too mention countless charities, academic studies and movements in which to funnel massive amounts of money. By the beginning of the millennium Global Warming theory was starting to be challenged, which in turn caused a population to start tuning out. The beginning of the 21st century brought with it a very real fear: terrorism. Although this fear did require action and alertness, this cycle too is nearing it’s end, not because of the threat itself, but because of the public’s perception.

    The “State of Fear” machine has run through the gambit of geological and foreign scare tactics which leads us to the most recent threat and the basis of this article: “Domestic Fear”. It is no longer advantageous, profitable and on a large scale, possible, to keep us afraid of unseen threats. So what’s the next logical cycle? Bring the “State of Fear” front and center. This cycle is being implemented by the fear of the “Prison State”. Is it only coincidence that just about anything you now do can land in you in jail, even 6 year old little girls?

    I know this was long but I just wanted to maybe shed some light on why we are seeing all these radical changes as of late. I am in no way supporting or denying any of the cycles in the State of Fear, just pointing out on how they are manipulated for control and profit. When the governing forces can no longer control us with unseen or faraway threats, they threaten us themselves.

    • John W.

      I realize you cannot handle the truth but McCarthy was right. There were in fact lots of commies all through our govt. and society. Still are. You are probably one of them. Just because McCarthy went overboard with his tactics does not mean he was not right. They gave him enough rope to hang himself and that put the issue off limits from then on.

      • John

        John W said: “Just because McCarthy went overboard with his tactics does not mean he was not right.”

        Then John W. you would say the same thing about Hitler, right?

        Go troll somewhere else you idiot.

      • knightowl77

        You are correct…there were then & now many communists in and about our government…Currently the Head Marxist is BHO, which really conflicts with his oath to uphold & defend our constitution

      • Benjik

        Sorry Johnny W, I guess I missed the part where I claimed McCarthyism was unfounded.

        Apparently you didn’t read my entire post or you consciously chose to pick it apart to suit your personal attack, either way your comment comes across as desperate, uninformed and down right ignorant. To accuse another person of being a communist by saying “You are probably one of them” is childish at best.

        To curb future embarrassment and ridicule I suggest not twisting someone’s words to constitute a personal attack and leave the name-calling on the playground.

  • mondobeyondo

    It’s looking pretty bad, folks.

    We can choose between…

    Strong Mighty Dear Prince Leader (Obama)
    Dear King Leader (Romney)
    Eternal Bulldog Face Leader (Gingrich)
    Crazy Rebel Insane Leader (Paul)
    Fragrant Sweet Cherry Blossom Leader (Palin)
    … or just Kim Jung-Un.

    • Me

      I’m in for crazy.

      I’ll tell you why.

      Bush came on the scene and he was like the worst parts of Reagan (foregn policy and general crookedness), mixed up with Jimmy Carter’s economic policies. Not that Reagan’s weren’t bad enough.

      With an IQ in the double digit range.

      I lived through Reagan as a kid so it never occurred to me I had any choice (in point of fact I didn’t). I had no interest in living through him again.

      So, sadly George was a two termer… longest 8 years of my life… and we came up to the plate again and we had Obama and we Had McCain.

      And I said to myself I’d be dipped in sh*t if I’d go VOLUNTARILY for Bush 3. It was POSSIBLE Obama was Bush 3. It was a foregone conclusion that McCain DEFINITELY was. And at the time I was still naive enough to worry about ending up with a Republican due to support-base-splitting when voting third party.

      I figured I’d vote for Obama and what would happen during his term would be very telling. Sort of a barometer. As to where the parties stood.

      Well. Yeah. It was. And my conclusion is that both parties are the same and we’re f*cked.

      So a vote for either Demublican or Repocrat is a vote for perpetual wars, surveillance, and financial servitude, guaranteed.

      Given that… ****** man, I’m voting crazy. If that don’t work (or at least show some glimmer of hope) I suggest getting in a boat and paddling to ********** Cambodia or something.

      • mondobeyondo

        I’d vote for crazy as well, but it’s not on the ballot. So I’ll just have to write it in.

        There ARE other options. You can vote Libertarian, or the Green Party. Most people will just vote Republican or Democrat, though.

    A pretty good VOTING percentage of the country still is pre Vietnam or if they cut their eye teeth in the 1960s they morphed into the conforming mortgage paying 1950s mentality. These people while not the majority in number are the majority in numbers voting. Getting many of them to think that their country as a whole is not misguided is difficult. They still but into the Democrat / Republican struggle and cant see how corrupted both parties have become. It will require much more loss of wealth to open their eyes. Inhibiting protesting means little to someone that would never protest. The power elite depend upon this “silent majority” that Nixon talked about. The power elite also see the political storm gaining strength as the Ozzy and Harriet generation awaken or just fade away.

  • Another Richard

    When touring the East German and Czech borders in the 1970’s, all the barbed wire,mine fields,guard towers were looking inside at the imprisoned people. The prisoners did not dare look out or gesture in any to us on the other side, because the guards had binos and were watching them. Remember, that freedoms are incrementally and systematically removed from Nations whose Government turns to tyrrany.No, the terrorists Never were outside invaders of US, but rather Tyrants from within our own Government – unelected and increasing in power daily.

  • Cinderella Man

    Orwell wrote “In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” So what becomes of our revolution? Most people I know like being plugged into the Matrix. I highly doubt they would care about a black box in their car or being fondled at the airport. The normalcy bias is sickening. I think as long as they got their food stamps, porn and cable that l;ife is all good. I post these articles on FB and I can almost see their glazed eyes as they pass it over on the newsfeed to read about what someone is feeding their kid for breakfast! Oh get 20 likes for that but an article with some cold reality in it its passed over. Ive almost given up. If the coppertops (remember Matrix movie) want to live in a prison planet then so be it! None of us can be Paul Revere forever!!

    The ironic thing is that US citizens have always been more threatened by grown terrorists and random violence rather than external threats.

    The, yawn, war of terror rubbish is a way of creating a pay day for defence and security firms and scaring the general population into accepting a reduction in rights. This is no reaching a point where people in the US will have no rights.

  • Michael, quoting you “No matter how much money the federal government spends on “homeland security”, the truth is that bad things will still happen.”

    My 2 cents and something to think about (maybe you can blog about it and make sence out of my reasoning):

    1. Motherland…RUSSIA (criminal communism)
    2. Fatherland…GERMANY (under Hitler´s Fascism)
    3. Homeland… U S A (starte w/Bush/Obama?)

    …see my point…where I am going, what I mean?
    USA is and soon will be the union of both, Communism and Fascism maybe?
    I am asking because you know a lot, read a lot and it would be great if you could blog about it.

    I think that the thingie about HOMELAND (DHS) is not to protect at all but to make out of the USA a country governed by a new system that would include the worst of Communism and Fascism.

        Heck I remember flying in the 70s. You had to put your cigarette out to get on the plane, but you could light up just as soon as you got on. I’ve been to all 7 continents and Greenland. My best airline experiences were JAL (Japan Airlines) and also British Airways. My worst experiences are a tie between American Airlines and an Italian airline called Alitalia.

  • DaytoDay

    I have been flying on airplanes going cross country (2k miles)since 98, so I remember what life was like before the TSA…

    It used to be, that everyone was given a meal, depending on the airline, it may have been a hot plate or a cold sub, but EVERYONE (1st class or not) was fed something more than stale peanuts.

    Any flight that was over 2hrs, you were shown a movie or several movies (Again EVERYONE).Smoking had been long banned, but the atmosphere was lax and there was no threat of “terrorists”…

    Security wasn’t a problem, you didn’t have to take off your shoes, go through body scanners or receive a pat down… The only thing “problem” was getting to the airport 1-2hrs early so you would make your flight, because the lines were LONG (Back when more people flew).

    I had over 20k frequent flyer miles, I have been flying from Kentucky to Arizona (Since 7yrs old), because my parents got divorced. I have flown on every commercial air company, but mostly Southwest and American west (which is gone), the best as far as quality was Delta.

    So, I have quite a bit of experience with airports and flying on airplanes, and now, I refuse to get on one… I would rather take a train cross country, then fly on an airplane again.

    • Michael

      I really used to look forward to flying.

    Now now, you only value privacy so much because you were brainwashed as a kid to do so.

    Well! Sorry! Change of program! Your brainwashing is obsolete… to the scrap heap with you (eventually, oce we’ve got our fresh batch of drones)…

    Oh give them a clean slate since childhood and they can make you beg for constant monitoring. Stockholm syndrome is real enough, but is it really a syndrome anymore if you’ve had it since age 6 months?

    They’re perfectly aware of this too. How many cultures in history were personal-liberty based? Some of the greater ones were. Many (most?) weren’t. Just because two or three failed in recent history is no reason to suppose it’s an unnatural condition for a group of humans. The culture may never be great, but who needs great when you have profitable + ICBM’s as deterrence?


    Begin with throwing the Federal Reserve Bank off the bus and get the money back that has been looted for 100 years to finance the internal grid system that has been erected in America. Then enforce the laws found in the R.I.C.O ACT and round up all of the enablers for trials. Elect constitutional watchdogs and purge the nation from this disease.

    Follow the plan here;

    The very same City of London powers that put the failed Obummer, not a native born American, in the White House are behind this subjugation of the American people. This is NOT by accident. It has been planned for about two centuries. The false flag attacks on America on 911 were instigated and operated by Mossad and very high levels of the US government to provide the excuse to crack down, and eventually eliminate, the traditional freedoms that Americans have enjoyed. If you vote for an incumbent in the US Congress, you are a fool. If you have not read Springmeier or Makow, you have not a clue about the truth.

  • jhpace1

    Look at Louis XIV of 17th Century France. He believed in his divine right of kings, a huge centralized state government, and a system of absolute monarchical rule over the French people.

    Those currently in power wish to stay in power, no matter the cost. Instead of a king, we have several hundred corporations who combine their long-term strategies to both control their environments and maximize mercantilism. The end result is fascism, even if it looks like socialism or communism on the way to the end. People not of the elite are cattle, sheep, or dogs. Individuals are dangerous. No one can upset the status quo by becoming as wealthy as the elite on their own merit. People must be controlled, for their own good, even though the elite are sociopathic, psychopathic, and full of sin. Their thrust is not limited to one country, but now is global.

    The problem is, propaganda works. Subsidies work. Nationalism works. All these sap the talents and energy of the individual, putting them in a mental or real cage that they cannot escape from. Slavery.

    To the elite ordinary citizens are first productive workers, second useful idiots, discarded when no longer useful. If the people rebel, no harm can come to the elite, and the rebellion to the empire must be crushed. This is the reason for the prison state.

    I believe that America is THE big hold up in the “new world order” project.. and I believe that the ones pulling the strings on this planet will do whatever it takes to bring this country down. BUT they have a problem. Americans just won’t give up their freedoms as easily as they thought.. and one freedom in particular has them worried: The right to bear arms! They know that a sudden outright takeover attempt would result in a bloodbath for all involved. They don’t want that lest patriots from other countries realize what is happening and try and help. This explains why they are trying so hard to kill the internet, and why they are trying – again- to take our guns.
    This is the big one folks – good versus evil. The book of revelations – the anti-christ, mark of the beast, etc, etc.. this all WILL happen and cannot be stopped..but it CAN be delayed.
    There are various ongoing black operations that are designed to weaken our resolve through both physical and mental attacks.. They are keeping us divided by race (hence the media deception on the Zimmerman case) and, I believe, have given up on goading us into an uprising (so they can declare martial law) so Obama has just signed takeover plans that don’t require martial law..
    People won’t wake up so don’t waste your time… prepare for you and your families!

    Here is a question to consider.

    If things got so bad that we had nationwide rioting and rebellion would our national guard and military behave like Syria’s killing their fellow citizens or would they defect and side with their families and countrymen against the oppressive government?

    • Navy91

      That’s the million dollar question.

      Personally, I like to think that they wouldn’t go that far. I like to think that the military leaders would refuse the order. But, I just don’t know. That’s why I prepare for me and mine.

  • Chris

    Well the wierd thinking justification could well be that in order to protect US citizens from terror attacks all US citizens will need to be effectively incarcerated in prisons. They will be safer from terror attacks there and all the criminals and terrorists can be left outside!

    Regarding George Orwell and 1984 I doubt that he somehow worked out what would take place in the future. More likely he was given inside knowledge about what was to take place probably through elite connections in socialist organisations such as the Fabian socialists.

  • chiller

    With more and more people waking up to the hi-jinks our guberment is up to, our government is freaking out about what WE will be doing to them, not terrorists. WE have become their worst nightmare because they know that we will be coming for them and it won’t be pretty. All the new constitution breaking laws being created are aimed directly at us, not terrorists. Like mentioned in the article, they monitor everything now days and what they’re hearing is a whole bunch of highly pissed off people who are now on to their diabolical schemes. So while the media continues to brainwash you into thinking it’s all about “terrorists”, never lose sight of the fact that WE are those terrorists that the guberment is preparing for, not Muhammad.

  • Paul Sorenson

    Once upon a time George Bush was the Dept. of Homeland Security. There were plenty of warnings prior to 911 and he did not, as one author put it..Shake The Trees. Get everyone on alert and start looking. Those hijackers were the luckiest thugs in the whole world. Thank you Mr. President…now look at the mess we have. New Zealand is starting to look pretty good.

    • Orange Jean

      There was not just one person (Bush) responsible for looking the other way; there were many, maybe even most of us. If I recall did, Clinton did nothing to prevent a recurrence following the first World Trade attack also.

      Personally, I felt a good deal of guilt after 911, about my contribution for the lax attitude about security. The reason is – I took a trip from Boston to Mexico in 1999; flew out of and into Logan. (Note that the security into interior Mexico was higher than if you just went over the border, different rules both sides of the border for something like 30 miles).

      When I got to Mexico City, the security was reasonably tight – that is, I had to stand in a long line, had my passport inspected (we may have still been able to use just a driver’s license, but I had a passport and used it), and they had a system of randomly checking peoples baggage.

      On my return trip, when I got to Logan… there was a marked walkway you had to go through getting off the plane; at the end of which, there was NOBODY checking anything. I was tired, I did not complain, I did not report this to anyone. Any wonder why some of those terrorists chose Logan to fly out of??

      I don’t believe we should be living in a prison camp, but there’s got to be some control over our borders – and I do not see nearly enough. Back in the 80s, I remember taking a bus down to the border in San Diego to do Christmas shopping in TJ. You were supposed to stand in line and show your ID proving who you were coming back in. I don’t know what the rules were for Mexican’s coming into the US at that time… but I saw multiple men hopping the fence RIGHT were you could see them from the line I was standing in to show my ID. NOBODY did anything about it. I believe our border (both North and South) is still very porous and I believe that represents a major threat to our country.

    Well, at least history repeats itself, and is on our side.Totalitarian regimes are eventually defeated, although it sometimes can take a long time. However, as long as all of the useful idiots are buying into all of the lies we will continue to backslide into a regime state. They have no idea where we are headed and I bet they’ll love it when it come to pass.

    I can’t come up with one totalitarian regime that is successful and where the people are happy.

    The United States is on the verge of becoming a prison nation, and after that (if you believe Alex Jones), a prison planet.

    The name of the game is control.
    It’s not about money.
    Once the people in charge have control, they’ll have your money. And your freedom. And everything else you hold near and dear. You will have very little say in whatever they do to you, because they’ll have CONTROL over your life. You can buy your freedom (just like any other slave) – but you most likely won’t be able to afford it.

  • JAH666

    This article is a basic chapter two after the article about how the nations tax & spend mania will not change no matter who is elected president and no matter which party is partying in Congress. Neither that article nor this one is a revelation, as others above have commented. Governmental power is all about control of the governed and technology is a two edge sword. Even a total worldwide economic collapse is no guarantee that the tightening of the noose will lessen. As resources dwindle, oppressive regimes just take more. There’s North Korea, again. The peasants starve, but the government goes on building missiles, bombs and guns. Another good example is the UK which has become the ‘United Kingdom of Surveillance’. Ultimately, in this country it will be the same: unrest will lead to more monitoring, more diversion of resources to government ‘solutions’, more restrictions. The powers behind the government that control media and education will help us get our minds right and in the end the masses will fall in line and Americans will only be able to feel “sadness and love of Big Brother”.

    A private message to my cockatiels:

    Dear Cinnamon and Pretty Boy:

    I love you very much, but I am sorry, I will have to set you free. My apartment complex will no longer allow pets. They consider pets to be unhygenic, or something. You will both be glad to hear this news, as you will at long last be able to fly on your own.

    Don’t count on being adopted by a kind human. There are things called “HOA’s” that prohibit pets. Humans can be cruel creatures.

    Food may be hard to come by. There is a Petsmart store a few miles away (as the crow flies. Heeee!)

    When I set you free, fly northwest for 4 miles (stop at the park 2 miles away for fresh water and to squawk at the visitors). Enter the Petsmart, and bite the checkout clerk on the nose. Then feast yourself on the endless quantity of millet seed available. Just [bleep] raid the place. Good luck, my darlings! Fly back and visit me sometime!…

    It’s a joke. I won’t really do that, unless I absolutely have to.

    Is the US turning into a prison camp? No,it has always been one. Ask an American Indian, or a Black, or a Mexican.Some small group has always been exploited, to feed the greed of the few. No, what you are seeing is that prison camp,is being expanded. As with any sickness, greed gets worse if left untreated. Now, no small group can feed their greed. The majority is now needed, to feed the greed of the few. If you know your history, this is a very dangerous step. Rome, Europe in the middle ages, and others, are all examples of societies run by the greedy few. None of them ended well. Most days I am glad to be old. I hope not to live long enough, to see just how bad it gets.

  • Graham

    I considered very carefully what the consequences might be for posting this data here, but an insight into a far bigger picture may open up people’s minds to alternative possibilities that go far in explaining what is going on and why. Without such data, it is clear that the majority may well remain in a state of fear and confusion. Do not read and view to believe or disbelieve, just read and view with interest, then watch what develops that either proves, or disproves such material. Also research what the purpose of COUNTELPRO is aimed at achieving. For every truth told, an untruth can be found to counteract it. Which one is true?

    Whilst Michael has done a stellar job at exposing the “symptoms” of what we are all seeing and experiencing within and around the global economies and beyond, it is equally important to research the underlying “cause”, or reason. Things never happen by accident on this scale. Bear in mind that for every “action” there is a “reaction”, as in “Cause and Effect”. Fear is not what the human race is about by nature. It is a “tool” that has been, and is still used by many to manipulate and control others, usually en masse, and it is primarily aimed at stifling creativity and freedom, in the truest sense of the word.

    Institutions and corporations that create and use the fear platform are destined to disintegrate and collapse, or be removed after full exposure. The driving force behind their methology is often referred to as the “egoic state of consciousness”, which in its more extreme form leads to sociopathy, narcissism and psychopathy. This has been proven recently by numerous medical professionals carrying out live fMRI brain scans on a number of so called corporate leaders. They know the specific areas of the brain that do not “illuminate” and why. They also discovered that the blood chemistry, DNA and brain scans coincide with those serving life sentences. Who exactly is running corporate USA? I refer to the Military Industrial Complex.

    Taking out the Federal Reserve System and outlawing Freemasonry would be a very productive place to begin “rebuilding”. Check the history of the USA, dating back to the late 1700’s up until 1913. All will become very clear! It is the sum of the parts that make the whole. By understanding the parts, the whole becomes apparent. How do “they” cover it up? The more “incredulous” the action, the less people are likely to believe it. Works every time. We need to “awaken”.

    I hope everyone finds the time to momentarily withhold their judgement and review the following items. Bear in mind we are very heavily conditioned by the powers that be, so remaining truly open minded can often prove extremely challenging. This is some of the best material available due to the background of the sources within it. Belief can also be a question of having faith. Always seek evidence and thoroughly cross check the sources.

      Your post is one of a very few that indicates the truth about the real threat that the Illuminati/Bilderberger/Freemason Satanists pose. This cabal has been behind most nightmares of the past 250 years, from the French Revolution to the US Civil War to the assassination of US Presidents to WWI and WWII to the attacks on 911. You will know that the end is near when law abiding and non criminal Americans are disarmed. These Satanists know that America can not be subdued unless the private ownership of firearms is eliminated.

    • North Iowa

      Regardless of whatever else you have written, your link to the ‘FEMA Camp’ video by Jesse Ventura is ill-advised.
      A simple internet fact check will show you that this video has been discredited completely and absolutely. Perhaps the Freemasons did it.

      We have enough problems without making them up.

      Two weeks minimum preps. Solar Flares happen.

      • Graham

        North Iowa:-

        Thanks for your input re the Jesse Ventura “FEMA Camp” documentary. When a story, article or subject matter gets vehemently “ridiculed” and/or “debunked”, I take it as a cue to investigate it further. A lot further. I will do this next week.

        There are a number of items within the video that would be very difficult to “debunk” as we have visuals and person to person interviews with people in positions of authority. Certain aspects of what I watched certainly merit further inquiry, but the FEMA camps are just one fragment of an overall game plan.

        There is no question that the solar flares are a matter of concern, especially in light of the electrical equipment we rely upon to run our countries. A few days ago a Japanese study reckoned that the sun will have “quad” polls by May. This apparently indicates a similar scenario to the start of the last ice age.

        For those who have done thorough research, they will know, alongside thousands of scientists, that the global warming and climate change claims are based on absolute nonsense. Aside from the proven abilities of HAARP, our weather patterns are cyclical and very much related to sun spot activity and so on. They also forget to factor in volcanic activity and output. Computers models produce the results they want them to produce.

        The 9/11 NIST models were a classic example of this and their theories fell flat on their face when cross questioned on camera by experts. I have also seen copies of the letters that went to and throw that led to NIST admitting a number of factors that leaves many questions unanswered. Of course the corporately controlled mainstream media didn’t report on any of this, just like they don’t report the truth about many things. One mistake on air can lead to their licence being revoked!

      • Graham

        The Jesse Ventura’s ‘FEMA CAMP’ episode was pulled by Congressman Cohen & the ADL. For those who watch the full episode at the link provided above, it will become blatantly obvious “why” they insisted it was pulled. Congressman Cohen was caught on camera denying any knowledge of a FEMA camp bill, which it transpires.. he signed. Surprise surprise.

        He also spurts out some nonsense on camera about “Martians” and “green monsters”. No wonder America has serious problems within politics. Some of those in power, aside from having their pockets lined by members of the Military Industrial Complex and Wall Street, have very little integrity. Is this the average calibre of person running America? I will purposelyexclude Ron Paul.

        I would highly recommend everybody to watch this documentary then run a search online to see which aspect was being “discredited”. From what I have found so far, further enquiry should be made over the “caskets” yard that appeares on film. This incidentally is not the only footage that exists of caskets. There are numerous stories about them online, along with photographs, from different locations.

        Hmm.. I wonder if Cohen’s a Freemason, just a *************, or both?

    in conservatives zeal to privatize everything including prisons, they now need to make a profit. How do private prisions make a profit? locking more people up. They get draconian laws passed by giving congress campaign money.

    Privatization is the problem along with the associated profit motive.

    Why do conservatives want to privatize everything?? becuase private companies can give them campaign money (bribes) and the gov agencies who would normally run them can not.

    A bit off topic, but an idea I am toying with to share with my fellow preppers (especially those of us stuck in suburbia). I am trying to get together money to purchase some land but in the meantime I thought about relandscaping my property with all edible plants.Every region has them. The average person doesn’t know these plants are edible so when they come to ransack my preps I’ll have a backup. If done right, I could include root vegetables such as carrots, potatos, and onions to make it look like part of the plentiful vegetation. I found out there is even a nursery a couple hours from where I live staffed with volunteers dedicated to helping people plant edible vegetation. (If you don’t have a resource like this where you live you should check with your local extention office to make sure your plants are edible as many plants are deadly.) Even rural dwellers should learn about edible plants because even a rural garden can get ransacked or be affected by weather conditions. The more informed we are on how to live an independent lifestyle the better off we all will be. Anyway, just a thought.

    • Orange Jean

      I’ve done that (planted eatable things in a landscaped garden)… but usually I plant a mix of traditional landscaped things (like flowers, which improve pollination) and eatable ones.

      I also have planted ODD looking veggies, like black tomatoes (when ripe, they look awful… brownish red bottoms some with green shoulders) or something like green zebra that never get red. I did this with NO theft from my garden (yes I know people weren’t likely starving where I was) even though I was in a major city, my garden was right near a busy sidewalk, and I had no fence.

      It probably wouldn’t work quite as well if there were gangs of hungry people but consider checking into UGLY eatables also. If you happen to live in the South, by the way… did you know much hated-hard to control KUDZU is eatable? The Japanese eat it, I don’t recall the details but a friend of mine, married to a Japanese man had a cookbook of how to prepare it. Just sayin’~!

    The proposed federal law does not mandate GPS tracking of your car. It does require event data recorders for all vehicles after 2014. The data is owned by the owner of the car. “Any data in an event data recorder required under part 563 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, regardless of when the passenger motor vehicle in which it is installed was manufactured, is the property of the owner, or in the case of a leased vehicle, the lessee of the passenger motor vehicle in which the data recorder is installed.” Only the owner has access to the data unless there is a court order.

      The insurance companies and law enforcement are already harvesting this information from our car computers. When you car is totalled by the insurance company, the company buys the car from you in exchange for money on a replacement car. At that point, they own the data and can do anything they want with it; including using it against you. Wake up! We are there already. The OBD II automotive diagnostic system (that is in all cars since 1996) made this possible.

    • Tara

      You don’t “own” the vehicle unless you have the pink slip. The bank (same as gov’ment) owns the vehicle. just like the phone companys gave up your info w/o your knowledge the same will happen again.

    • jio021

      Tara is correct, most are not aware that you are not the true “owner” of your vehicle (or your land) even after you’ve paid off any loans. Once all loans are paid off, you THINK you’re getting the true title to that vehicle.
      THIS IS A LEGAL DECEPTION. What you actually get is a “Certificate of Title” – – that is, a document which certifies that a title exists. The REAL title is actually what is called a “Certificate of Origin” which is generated by the manufacturer and sent to the “dealer”. When you “buy” the vehicle, the dealer sends the CoO to the STATE. When you pay off all loans, what they send you in the mail is only a “Certificate of Title” (go look if you have a vehicle you THINK you own) and the STATE remains the true own of the vehicle. Your “registration fees” etc. are just a clever “legal” (not lawful) way of allowing you to “rent” the vehicle. But you can be certain that if you give them “legal cause” they can and WILL confiscate THEIR vehicle from you in a heartbeat, and sell it at an action and continue collecting their rental fees from their next ignorant victim. Again, the same is true of land, if you only have a deed you are NOT the true owner. You must have true “allodial title”. TRUE property owners are NOT required to pay any taxes on something they TRULY own.

      WAKE UP SHEEPLE!! You’ve been tricked and your ignorance of the true common law vs. statutory law has been played like a bad fiddle for several generations now.

        You are right. All is not hopeless tho.. a simple business transaction of claiming your trust that you unwittingly gave to the government when acquiring their fraudulent licenses.

      A small correction here:

      A communist country is the same as the tooth fairy and santa claus – it only exists in people’s imagination, basically to scare the kids.

      Communism is very simple:
      Everybody gives according to his ability and receives according to his needs.

      To get to communism is also very easy:
      World Revolution and abolishment of all states and governments.

      Communism is a classless society, and only classes need states to protect their privileges.
      So – no need for states and governments in communism.

    An extremely important movie is coming this summer – Dinesh D’Souza – Obama 2016 Dinesh D’Souza is a college President and is the author of many New York Times best sellers. The movie is from Gerald R. Molen, producer of the Academy Award-winning Schindler’s List. It explains in plain language who Barack Obama really is, what he stands for, and the dangers of his being reelected for another four years. Watch this 14-minute video preview of the movie, which came out February 28, 2012 and share it with others. It has already been seen by over 1 million people.

    Why Does Obama’s Department Of Homeland Security Need 450 MILLION Hollow Point Bullets???

    Remember that Obama’s Department Of Homeland Security bought 400 million rounds through Winchester in 2009..remember these are not target rounds.

    Obama’s Department of Homeland Security announced that ATK was awarded a contract to provide up to 450 MILLION .40 caliber hollow point bullets to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security over the next five years. What in the world is the DHS going to do with 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets? Who does Obama’s Department of Homeland Security plan to kill? Even considering that most people are lousy shots, according to the U.S. Census, there are only about 311 million people living in the entire country. So why does Obama’s Department of Homeland Security need 450 million more rounds of ammunition? Give them to the Mexican drug cartels or do they plan on killing Americans???

    If the United States was ever invaded (not counting the 20-40 million invaders aka guest workers/illegal aliens into the USA), it would be the job of the U.S. military to defend the country and they have their own budget and they normally do not use hollow point bullets, The Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, prohibited the use in international warfare. .

    Also DHS has an open bid for a stockpile of rifle ammo. Listed on the federal business opportunities network, they’re looking for up to 175 million rounds of .233 caliber ammo to be exact. The 223 is almost exactly the same round used by NATO forces, the 5.56 x 45mm.

    Hollow point bullets are designed to expand in size once within the target, thus maximizing tissue damage and blood loss or shock, and to remain inside the target, thereby transferring all of its kinetic energy to that target. In other words Obama’s Department of Homeland Security intend on killing people!!!

    • Paul

      They don’t need the bullets.

      But they have shares in the bullet manufacturers.

      And having the government buying bullets, is the same as putting tax payers money into their pockets.

      Only now it is legal.

    • Ann

      Your info is correct. I’m making preparations to leave this once great nation. Hopefully, I can hang on until the November “election”. I don’t know yet. If Obama “wins”, we are done and I’m gone as soon as humanly possible. If he “loses”, I’ll hang around for a while to see how this shakes out. Hollow points? What the he!! for? Of course, lots of secrecy from this “transparent” administration.

    • DB200

      Hollow Point Bullets are forbidden to use in warfare under Geneva Convention. Buying 450 million of them would be waste of tax payer’s money as they normally couldn’t be used.

      So where is the proof that “Department of Homeland Security announced that ATK was awarded a contract to provide up to 450 MILLION .40 caliber hollow point bullets to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security over the next five years.”?

  • TtT Engine

    It is always the same model with these lefty totalitarian bullies. Put more and more of a stranglehold on the law abiding, tax paying, God fearing Americans. The TSA looks the other way on YES, the profile of those seeking our destruction. They salivate over looking at nude bodies in an X-Ray machine and molesting good decent people in airport lines. These lefty thugs run good Americans through lengthy firearm licensing processes while our cities are a walking, living arsenal of illegal weapons and drugs because we don’t have the will or the power to clean up our cities. Now they want to track our every word and movement with “spy” boxes in our cars. Government Motors Corp. could accomplish this very nicely, guys. You might need an electronic permit to operate your car. The car shuts off automatically when your travel is not approved or you have used up your “mile allotment”. I’ll walk, Mo-Ped or get a horse before I would allow this. OUTRAGIOUS !! I know they will sell this totalitarian model with another lie that they can now monitor criminal activity. HEY, how about a cranial surgical implant to monitor brain activity. You could capture “criminal” activity even before it happens. More lefty totalitarian dangerous B.S. More and more government and bigger and bigger ballooning deficits and less and less God given American freedom. November 2012 is our last chance to have any hope of reversing this insanity. I pray ALL of you God fearing, tax paying, America loving patriots will vote, vote, vote for and Stand Up For the America our patriotic brothers shed blood for. Christi Fidelis !

      This is why he said we needed a civilian police dept as powerful as the military. He already has the start-up, the New Black Panthers. He hasn’t uttered a word about their “hate” speech and tweets about Zimmerman, nor the ones at the voting booth in 08. This looks like it is going to be, HIS civilian police. I think he is getting ready for a race war, that was calulatingly planned for the 2 weeks between the Martin killing and when it was reported to the public. How it was reported was to incite race war. When he isn’t reelected, between Nov & Jan (when a new one is inagurated), the war wil start and HE will utilize this to “regain” control. Then the problem will be, he needs to stay in office to maintain order in the country, thus dictator. Achievement of all goals he came in to do- CHANGE.

  • Mike88

    All of this is happening because for many decades the people have been taught and brainwashed into not challenging authority and especially not to challenge the police. Now that people don’t challenge the police politicians,or other authority figures,and the laws they create,the police and politicians think they can do whatever they wish with total immunity because up until this point they have gotten away with it and believe they always will. Up until now that has been true, but if the people of this nation ever get pissed off enough and join forces with each other to protect and defend each other from arrests then we can take down those politicians and the police that protect and defend the politicians and their actions or laws they create that are written and designed to work against the people of this nation, that have corralled us like cattle for many years.
    We must learn to work together just like the police do when they feel threatened they call for back-up we the people must create a system whereas we can call for back up from fellow citizens as well so we can also protect and defend one anothre from this tyrannical government. The people of this nation are not cowards, they have just been trained not to get involved in other people problems especially when the police or other law enforcement authorities are involved. This training we have undergone for many years needs to be totally forgotten and we need to be rtetrained to protect and defend one another for our very servival as a free people.

    “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”)

    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.

    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……… 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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
