It does not take a leap in logic to understand that the terrorist fears in the United States are homegrown. That is to say, the real terrorists in our midsts are us.
An article in the Financial Times last year said mobile providers can “remotely install a piece of software on to any handset, without the owner’s knowledge, which will activate the microphone even when its owner is not making a call.”
New York City is now planning it’s own “ring of steel” using cameras and license plate scanners.
As Police officer Michael Gerbasi drives, a camera on the roof of his patrol car photographs license plates. A computer then checks a database to see, for example, if the car is stolen.
“It will notify us with an alert sound on the computer, and then actually there is a voice that speaks out and says, “stolen vehicle” and it will give you a picture of the plate and a description of the vehicle, says Gerbasi.
More than a hundred of the readers “ some on cars, others in fixed places “ are about to be deployed en-masse in Lower Manhattan as part of a massive $106 million counter-terrorism initiative years in the planning.
œStarting in January, we’ll be putting in our license plate readers. That will be, kind of, phase one of this program, says Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
The license plate readers are just the tip of the iceberg in what’s billed as the Lower Manhattan Security Initiative.
œWe’re looking to put in, ultimately, a thousand cameras in public spaces, link it to 2,000 private sector cameras, says Kelly.
Since when was a stolen car a “terrorist” crime?
It is this type of double-speak that is extremely troubling. Any crime can now be broadly labeled as terrorist activity. I’ve already covered on this blog how Americans can now be labeled as terrorist and have their constitutional rights totally suspended. Being declared an enemy of the state just keeps getting easier and easier.
But this pales in comparison to the real crime being foisted on America, and that is the notion of ‘foreign terrorists’ attacking us. To be sure, there have been several high profile attacks (9/11 was not one of them) by foreign terrorists. I’m not discounting these events or why they occurred. The crime I’m talking about is the fabrication of “al-Qaeda” and the justification of this phantom group to deliberately, and maliciously attack American constitutional protections here at home.
In the Power of Nightmares, it becomes extremely clear that “al-Qaeda” is a total fabrication of the CIA and deliberately promoted and foisted upon the American people as a dire and imminent threat. This has led to an incredible array of checks and balances being completely disregarded by Bush Administration, the CIA, NSA, FBI and DHS.
Surrounding New York City with cameras to catch stolen cars, or in reality, to just spy on you is but one step in this descent into total fascism. There have been countless, daily stories about who the real terrorists in our midst are.
The following video clips have been posted here before, and are from 2004, but they are as true as ever. Our worst nightmare is also coming true – we have lost our country to the neo-fascists.
From Wake From Your Slumber:
This hour discusses the origins of the murderous Neocons. It also discusses Sayyid Qutb and the origins of modern Islamic resistance. Qutb (an Egyptian) formed his ideas while he was living in the USA.
Six parts, 10 minutes each.
This hour is mainly devoted to how the Neocons lied and conspired to destroy Bill Clinton.
Six parts, 10 minutes each.
This hour exposes the CIA’s fabrication of the false “al-Qaeda” myth in January 2001. In the video, CIA operatives directly involved in the”war on terror” admit that no such organization exists. “Osama Bin Laden never used the term al-Qaeda until after 9-11, when he realized that al-Qaeda was the term the Americans had invented for him.” Even the wikipedia Zionists admit this. See this section under the sub-title œLegal Creation of Al Qaeda, and then compare it with the video. Two thirds of the way through you will see the origin of the ridiculous œdirty bomb fantasy.
Six parts, 10 minutes each.
As if that was not enough, the nightmare is all around us now. I also received a steady stream of email alerts from Vaughn, and he’s sent some doozies:
The U.S. wants Iran to “confess” about it’s nuclear weapons program (if it indeed existed at all)? I see the current Stasi administration is spinning the NIE report that Iran had a weapons program that ceased in ’03 in order to wipe off the much-egg-in-face. More important; perhaps the U.S. cabal should confess as to why it suppressed that NIE report for a year before it was released earlier this month.
I’ve NEVER believed that the US would actually be so stupid to attack Iran, which would be absolute suicide for our military forces. Iran is the “red herring” of the Bush Administration, deliberately being spun as brain-deadening distraction. While the sleeping public is focused on Iran, our ‘protectors’ are fast assembling a police state under the guise of State security.
It’s gotten so bad now regarding Iran, that I don’t even bother reading much about it anymore. What is the point in reading more and more lies?
This fear rhetoric is permeating every aspect of our society now and quite frankly, I’m sick to death of it. Now we’re arresting little kids in a knee-jerk reactionary response to this State-sponsored fear:
“Anytime there’s a weapon on campus, yes, we have to report it and we aggressively report it because we don’t want to take any chances, regardless…” Knife At Lunch Gets 10-year Old Arrested At School
We’re talking about a 10 year old kid that brought a steak knife to school in order to cut the piece of steak she had brought for lunch. So, a couple of teachers (who probably watch far too much CNN or Faux News) called the cops and had the kid arrested. Arrested at 10 [years old] for eating steak and using a utensil to do so. No one considered the mental trauma that will preside in this kid for a while. Good plan. Have her in fear and resentment of her ‘educators’.
I guess confiscation of the steak knife and a chat in the Principle’s office with the parent’s full notification was out of the question. But because they couldn’t get the parents on the phone right away; skip ‘Go’ and head straight to ‘Jail’. And on top of that, the Principle suspended this kid for 10 days!
The lunatics are indeed running the fiefdom.
It should be self-evident, that nobody is welling to pen what really needs to be said about this country, and what needs to be done, although many are sort of half-trying. You are supposed to read between the lines.
In Controlling the Planned Collapse, this is this sort of article, while at the same time, it still completely misses the boat:
Even though most available evidence suggests that the entire world is collapsing (not just America and Western civilization), there is also ample proof that this is an engineered event, made to seem like Armageddon.
We have been duped into accepting their terms, even using their terminology, by focusing on œglobal issues, instead of American issues. America may be the source of most of the world”s troubles today, but it is also the world”s only hope. If not for American leadership, there would be no world leaders. What the world needs now is the end of American œmisleadership and a return to the real thing. Meeting the needs of our crowded planet and repairing the centuries of industrialization run amok will calm most of the earth”s turmoil, while helping us to prepare for the next phase in human development. Once we begin to turn the planet around, we can focus on expanding mankind”s horizons and ending the era of hydrocarbon fuels.
It can be safely said that common sense no longer prevails. There is a great deal of self-deluding ‘spin’ that we’re all doing about how we’re going to ‘get through’ these times we now find ourselves in. It’s easy enough to do. But focusing on all the wrong information won’t help, or the wrong set of beliefs.
We believe that we can step in with our technical and political prowess and “fix” anything. This is simply not true and never was. What we’ve done in the past was incomplete and has always had long term consequences. But this mindset that we are going to engineer our way “free” somehow (now) is patently absurd.
This ‘holiday season‘ (I’m still working) think about the power of nightmares and what it really means. Here’s a few more to get you started (thanks Vaughn):
