Homeland Insecurity: The 21st Century U.S. Police State
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, it’s just a goddamned piece of paper!” ~ George W. Bush (source)
Since the false flag 9-11 attack on America, the U.S. government has been busy listening to citizens’ phone calls, compiling volumes of personal data, and eavesdropping on electronic communications – all without a constitutionally required warrant (source). This information has been handed over to the government by your telecom provider (in violation of their contractual duty to not disclose this information to 3rd parties), under the threat of FCC license revocation.
The FBI acknowledged Wednesday it improperly accessed Americans’ telephone records, credit reports and Internet traffic in 2006, the fourth straight year of privacy abuses resulting from investigations aimed at tracking terrorists and spies.
In a disturbing throwback to tactics employed by the East German Stasi (secret police), the FBI is recruiting “thousands of covert informants in the United States as part of a sprawling effort to boost its intelligence capabilities.” This article discusses the plan revealed in a report to Congress. This alarming use of Americans recruited to spy on one another was employed in response to George Bush’s push for more “aggressive” uses of human intelligence gathering following 9-11.
Other recent proposals include expanding its collection and analysis of data on U.S. persons, retaining years worth of American’s phone records and even increasing so-called “black bag” secret entry operations.
The 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the freedom of speech. The 4th Amendment guarantees the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures without probable cause (including telephonic and electronic communications). The Supreme Court has determined that a fundamental right to privacy exists under U.S. law.
So, why is the government allowed to brazenly abuse these individual rights guaranteed under the Constitution? The simple answer is because they can. They use propaganda and fear to intimidate the people. Their goal is to make the citizens desperate for more security and protection, at any cost. When you do not know your rights, they can easily be diminished and subverted in the interest of “homeland security.” The Soviets also had an Orwellian themed homeland security agency called the “Ministry for State Security.”
Not to worry, Robert Mueller, the current FBI Director, stated his intention to allay the concerns of the American people.
We are committed to ensuring that we not only get this right, but maintain the vital trust of the American people.
Given that Muller is is directly responsible for the violations of the rights of the American people, I cannot take solace in his assurance. I fear the government more than I fear the threat they are supposedly protecting us from.
The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question.
