The psychic fluidum- that is, the peculiar atmosphere—of totalitarian dictatorship is created by two closely related phenomena, propaganda and terror. [...] Its chief characteristic is the deliberate effort to intimidate. [...] A pervasive atmosphere of anxiety and a general sense of insecurity are the subjective concomitants of such terror. Often the victims of such terror are quite unaware of their own psychic states. —Excerpted from Totalitarian Dictatorship & Autocracy by Carl J. FRIEDRICH and Zbigniew K. BRZEZINSKI; Frederick A. Praeger, Publishers; Second Edition © 1956. 1965 (emphasis added)
Most Americans still “don’t get it.” Our rights as American citizens are under attack by the most socialist administration ever to assume power, installed by an elite oligarchy of globalists through a continuity of agenda that began decades ago. Americans continue to be sold some of the biggest lies in history by the establishment media, which has been progressively infiltrated by some of the most powerful socialists, communist sympathizers and sellouts in the history of the Fourth Estate.
The rights of every American citizen are protected by the U.S. Constitution, which is divinely inspired and one of the most famous documents in the history of the world. Along with the Bible, this document allocates inalienable rights to Americans that no other man or government agency shall take away. Due to a combination of apathy and deliberate assault, the U.S. Constitution has become the proverbial red-headed stepchild of this administration in particular and past administrations in general. It has been ignored, beaten, and relegated to an indefinite “time out.”
During its creation and the establishment of our Republic, our forefathers established a series of checks and balances to protect the rights of all Americans through the separation of powers. The framers often spoke about abuse of powers and the ability of man to oppress man. They foresaw the need to protect against unreasonable government intrusions, and today we can see the value of their nearly prophetic wisdom and foresight.
During his farewell speech delivered on 17 January 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower prophetically issued a direct warning to the American people for the potential of misplaced power that could potentially endanger our liberties and democratic processes. He further warned that we must not allow this to happen, and advised us to be vigilant and take nothing for granted. As if he was speaking to us today, Eisenhower stated that “[o]nly an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
It should be apparent to every alert and knowledgeable American citizen that we have reached the crossroads, and even crossed that very intersection referenced by this former statesman. As we stand at this point in history, it is obvious that if we do not address the threats to our liberties at this time, there will be nothing and no one to stop the perversion of power, the abuses of our citizens, the erosion of our rights and the ultimate abolishment of our constitution.
Surrendering our Constitutional Rights
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides our citizenry the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. It provides that this right “shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall be issued, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” It is clear that this Amendment was put in place to protect our liberties and to be able to live freely, without unwarranted harassment, by agencies or arms of our government.
Yet, what is its status today? Who, if not those who are entrusted with the protection of our liberties will assure our protection? Who among us will say “enough” when the government crosses the line and takes away certain liberties for the fallacy of domestic security?
Despite the warnings from our founders and more recent statesmen such as Eisenhower, Americans appear more willing now to surrender their rights and freedom for the illusion of security. Although Americans have heard that statement time and again, the majority apparently still don’t “get it.” Accordingly, they willingly and even cheerfully at times, agree to surrender their constitutional rights just to board an airplane, playing a perverse game of “grope-a-dope.”
Soon, we will be required to surrender all of our Fourth Amendment rights just to board a bus, train or other form of public transportation. From there, it most likely will be to enter a school, stadium, courthouse, mall or other public venue. In fact, it is already beginning to happen.
Bipartisanship: The art of selling the same lies
Like the proverbial frog in the pot of water, Americans are indeed being conditioned to accede their constitutional rights for the mere illusion of security. This illusion of security, however, is but one spoke of a wheel designed by the globalists for the implementation of a New World Order. A New World Order cannot coexist with our national sovereignty and a constitution protective of its citizens. Therefore, the power elite must deconstruct our rights and safeguards from within, and are readily doing so under the pretext of our own security. Once the majority of the sleeping population is properly conditioned, the violations of our rights will become incrementally more egregious until the perversions detailed by George Orwell’s 1984 are nothing more than a distant vision in our collective rear view mirrors.
What will it take to awaken Americans to these violations of our rights? Obviously, it will take more than mere lip service by conservative political pundits and their consummate followers who seem to accept some measure of adulteration of the constitution while speaking up against others. An exceptional illustration of this dichotomy can be seen by those who have refused to discuss the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama, yet scream like little schoolgirls at the mere mention of throttling first or second amendment rights. Such representatives of “conservatism” are the political equivalent of Christians who pick and choose only those commandments that are most convenient to follow. In consideration of such hypocrisy, can we really place our trust in these self-proclaimed conservative mouthpieces?
We know what to expect from the progressive and socialist mouthpieces as their intentions and objectives are as transparent as their deceptiveness. They ignore the obvious continuality of agenda under Obama, giving him a free pass on issues for which they would otherwise assail a republican or conservative. It is this transparency that identifies them for what they are and what they represent, and makes them much less of a threat than those who appear to hold the constitution sacred.
While many conservative pundits will walk to the edge of the abyss of the lies and deceit pushed by our government officials, less than a handful have dared expose the full depth of the abyss, always stopping short of exposing the entire truth. We believe that by exposing only partial truths, those conservative pundits actually enhance the conditioning of their trusting followers. The subtle deception by omission or deliberate evasion is likely to be the proverbial final nail in the coffin of our great republic.
TSA Scanners: All about the Benjamins?
Much like the deceit of the globalists and their supporters, the existence of totalitarian rule is becoming more and more apparent. Perhaps the most apparent of all totalitarian undertakings are those of the Transportation and Security Administration presently under the leadership of John Pistole, a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the reign of Janet Napolitano.
We need to look no further than the TSA for illustrations of just how out of control the abuse of power is today. Unsurprisingly, the liberal watchdogs that have historically fought against such abuses are silent, while the conservative right permits the advances of such powers without objection as well. It is this unification and continuity of agenda that should be ringing alarm bells across the nation. We should be able to rely on those we’ve elected to protect our rights, yet the same people who have taken an oath to uphold the constitution are permitting and in many cases, facilitating its demise.
Consider the basis for the full body scanners to be placed in our nation’s airports. The major impetus for the accelerated dispatch of the scanners was the alleged thwarted Christmas Day 2009 bombing attempt on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit by Umar Faouk Abulmutallab. Legitimate questions about the genuine nature of that attempt, along with other actors and facilitators unknown, continue to surround this incident and remain without satisfactory answers.
Nonetheless, former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff, head of the private security consulting firm known as The Chertoff Group, made numerous media appearances following this incident to convince a frightened flying public the need for full body scanners to detect such bombs hidden in private areas. Since that time, the TSA has stated their intention to roll out such scanners to include other modes of public transportation and has ordered more scanners for these purposes.
Now consider that The Chertoff Group worked with RapiScan, which is one of only two companies that manufacture these devices who are TSA vendors. The other company, L-3 Communications, has as its lobbyist, Linda Daschle, who is the wife of former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle. It should be looked upon as no coincidence that at least eight members of congress own stock in L-3 Communications. Included among those eight is Senator John Kerry, who owns upwards of a million dollars in L-3 stock.
Considering the above, is it any wonder that we hear nary a whimper from congress about the implementation and use of the full body scanners?
Private Parts: the TSA and abuse of power
Based on the above, it is no coincidence that allegations of physical abuses along with reports of theft and pedophilia at the hands of TSA agents are largely ignored by the corporate media and the elected officials in congress. Given these conditions, the abuses were bound to only get worse, and they have.
This week, American citizens were treated to a covertly recorded video of TSA agents peering under the diaper of an infant at a TSA checkpoint at an U.S. airport. Public reaction to this perverse sight was anger and fury, although both sentiments appear to be short lived as Americans consider this an exception as the conditioning continues.
Outrage over such TSA behavior continues by those who have yet to be indoctrinated. For others, such incidents are met with ambivalence.
Not so by the former Miss America who tearfully reported that she was molested by TSA agents. She alleges that a TSA agent unnecessarily groped and touched her vagina four times in a single pat down, traumatizing her and reducing her to tears.
Such behavior, if done outside of the color of law, would be criminal in nature. Instead, the TSA is given a pass and the majority of Americans are fine with their tactics, as long as these tactics in tandem with the nuclear scanners assure passenger safety. Beyond that, it is the assertion of the TSA that all of their screenings are performed randomly and without invasion of privacy. Obviously, an ample amount of covertly secured videos prove otherwise.
In our opinion, the TSA has been openly running a criminal organization since its existence. The fourth amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects American citizens from unreasonable searches. Unfortunately, this law is apparently not followed anymore, and our rights under the fourth amendment are not being protected. The TSA’s response is quite simplistic. According to TSA Head, John Pistole, if passengers refuse screening by scanners or pat downs, they do not have the right to fly. The problem with this, however, is that the TSA is now expanding its searches to other venues, including roadside checkpoints where backscatter scanners are being used to inspect passenger and cargo vehicles. It’s a virtual boon to the scanner manufacturers, to be sure, and job security for the federal workers.
Just two months ago, the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee charged that the TSA intentionally fixed data to ensure that federal workers were employed to screen airport passengers, rather than private contractors. This report illustrates the depth of the deception by government officials to keep all of the screening “in-house,” especially in light of the projected expansion of the screening program.
Potato, Popcorn, or People?
Recent studies have shown that naked body devices showed radiation levels 10 times higher than expected. Despite this statistic, the government has assured their workers and the flying public alike that the scanners are perfectly safe. Given the incestuous involvement of government with the scanner manufacturers, would anyone expect a report to the contrary? Where are the journalists who should be actively investigating this issue?
To quote the farsighted Zbigniew K. BRZEZINSKI in the 1956 work Totalitarian Dictatorship & Autocracy that he co-authored, “the peculiar atmosphere—of totalitarian dictatorship is created by two closely related phenomena, propaganda and terror.” We are replete with ample amounts of both.
