The Fear of Dissent and the Road to Totalitarianism
by frank Monday, Mar 19 2012, 1:20am
international / social/political / commentary

It doesn’t get much worse than indefinite detention without trial or charge and ‘legal’ assassinations of citizens on secret executive order – even mass murdering Stalin couldn’t get-away with both of those draconian impositions on his people. But American whipped-dog SLAVES lap it up and beg for more! So, not unexpectedly, the latest 'order' puppet president to the plutocrats, Obama, has signed reinforces the totalitarian direction the nation is taking. Unrestrained by law or civil government, you are now officially dispossessed, signed, Emperor of Amerika, Barack Obama!

The latest order allows for the Executive, or Emperor’s office, to gain complete control over ALL US resources – in other words the chosen Emperor, has just put the entire wealth and everything else of value into his pocket with the stroke of a pen – YOU DUMB, SPINELESS, AMERICAN FUCKS!

Now I’m gonna give you NAÏVE mental bankrupts and appalling COWARDS a little lesson in totalitarianism, which I experienced first hand in post WWII Europe – I hope you read this Mr John ‘try it first’ Pilger!

Though only a child at the time I have VIVID memories of secret police kicking the front door down and ‘legally’ entering our home like a pack of demented wolves looking for someone to abuse and terrorise. After terrorising my mother and me, still in the cot, they began to mercilessly beat the shit out of my old man in front of both my mother and me screaming my lungs out all the while! Not long after that terrifying intro, sadistic secret police performed the same front door trick again – all legally sanctioned by the totalitarian State -- which incidentally, was run by a small Jewish central committee/cabal of thoroughly corrupt criminals (sound familiar, Amerika?) but on this occasion they beat my old man unconscious and dragged him away to be locked up for years, after a trial similar to those conducted by the US military TODAY!

Without going into too much detail (CIA get fucked!) we managed to escape that TOTALITARIAN regime and board a crammed ship headed for Sydney, Australia! I was under five at the time but remember CLEARLY the light, air and relaxed people of Oz as my mother walked me down George Street for the first time – I was in paradise, my bones informed me, no one said a word about free Oz, I just absorbed it like a desert absorbs rain, eagerly, naturally and with the instincts of a child – it was ALL good in those days!

I completed my schooling to tertiary level in a free Australian education system and became what is called a ‘success.’ I owe everything to Oz and love this country passionately. Relatives have represented the nation in sport, gained high positions in society and almost all my cousins have tertiary level education and are very thankful and comfortable today!

But I have other QUALIFICATIONS/EXPERIENCE which taught me well HOW to recognise the TOTALITARIAN EVIL that has taken over – make no mistake -- the USA and is attempting to do likewise in Australia, via UNREPRESENTATIVE puppets in Canberra!

Totalitarianism FEARS, first and foremost, its own population, notice the complete loss of liberties and the disgusting treatment US citizens are subjected to today, they have effectively been locked down by the same Zionist/Banker (Rothschild) and other Corporatist forces that attempted to gain control of the World via Socialism/Communism at the turn of the 19th century.

Corrupt criminal cabals are acutely aware that people have their measure, so minority criminal elites must first ensure their personal safety and legalise, by whatever DECEITFUL means, methods by which they are able to ‘deal’ with dissent or ANYONE that opposes their CRIMINAL RULE; liberties and LAWS that PROTECT the PEOPLE must be eliminated in favour of secret, unaccountable practices that protect criminal cabals instead – sound familiar?

The United States today has become the world’s LEADING civilian killing therefore TERRORIST nation, FACT! Since the Indo-Chinese war the USA has KNOWINGLY and mercilessly slaughtered over FIVE million INNOCENT civilians, and that is a conservative estimate! Over the past decade American citizens have lost every single liberty their forefathers implemented and fought to protect – the latest three executive ‘laws’ passed by reprehensible, LYING puppet -- a bullet is too good for him – Obama, have effectively robbed citizens of EVERYTHING! And who is behind Obama/Washington/NATO, the exact SAME MINORITY group of wealthy, criminal, Zionist Bankers and Corporate plutocrats that tried with communism/socialism to gain world dominance? Not ONE stinking, criminal Jewish Banker or corrupt Corporatist, Mr Blankfein, has yet to be held accountable for instigating all the oil and other wars since the Balkan invasion! But it's not news today, the people KNOW IT, yet they allow this scum to abuse, MURDER and rob them blind!

Well, good fuckin’ luck, you dumb, COWARDLY yanks, cos minority scumbags won’t do it here in Oz – there are just too many educated, resourceful Aussies around and we now occupy one of the most strategically critical regions in the world -- we can give 'you' more trouble than you can give us, got it?

Space restricts me elaborating but if you are unable to SEE where all these new 'orders/laws' lead, then you are completely BLIND! Those Americans still able to think should be making some hard decisions regarding their future, NOW! Hell is making a bed for you; complacency, sloth, imbecility or COWARDICE are no longer ‘comfortable’ alternatives!


Report of new executive US order, follows:

New Executive Order Seizes U.S. Infrastructure and All Resources
by Brandon Turbeville

In a stunning move, on March 16, 2012, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order stating that the President and his specifically designated Secretaries now have the authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources including food and water. The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.

Not only that, but the authority claimed inside the EO does not only apply to National Emergencies and times of war. It also applies in peacetime.

The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order exploits the “authority” granted to the President in the Defense Production Act of 1950 in order to assert that virtually every means of human survival is now available for confiscation and control by the President via his and his Secretaries’ whim.

The unconstitutionality of the overwhelming majority of Executive Orders is well established, as well as the illegality of denying citizens their basic Constitutional and human rights, even in the event of a legitimate national emergency. Likewise, it should also be pointed out that, like Obama’s recent Libyan adventure and the foregone conclusion of a Syrian intervention, there is no mention of Congress beyond a minor role of keeping the allegedly co-equal branch of government informed on contextually meaningless developments.

As was mentioned above, the scope of the EO is virtually all-encompassing. For instance, in “Section 201 – Priorities and Allocations Authorities,” the EO explains that the authority for the actions described in the opening paragraph rests with the President but is now delegated to the various Secretaries of the U.S. Federal Government. The list of delegations and the responsibility of the Secretaries as provided in this section are as follows:

(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

One need only to read the “Definitions” section of the EO in order to clearly see that terms such as “food resources” is an umbrella that includes literally every form of food and food-related product that could in any way be beneficial to human survival.

That being said, “Section 601 – Secretary of Labor” delegates special responsibilities to the Secretary of Labor as it involves not just materials citizens will need for survival, but the actual citizens themselves.

Obviously, the ability of the U.S. government to induct and draft citizens into the military against their will is, although a clear violation of their rights, not an issue considered shocking by its nature of having been invoked so many times in the past. Logically, this “authority” is provided for in this section.

However, what may be shocking is the fact that Section 601 also provides for the mobilization of “labor” for purposes of the national defense. Although some subsections read that evaluations are to be made regarding the “effect and demand of labor utilization,” the implication is that “labor” (meaning American workers) will be considered yet one more resource to be seized for the purposes of “national defense.”

The EO reads, Sec. 601. Secretary of Labor. (a) The Secretary of Labor, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of other agencies, as deemed appropriate by the Secretary of Labor, shall:

(1) collect and maintain data necessary to make a continuing appraisal of the Nation's workforce needs for purposes of national defense;

(2) upon request by the Director of Selective Service, and in coordination with the Secretary of Defense, assist the Director of Selective Service in development of policies regulating the induction and deferment of persons for duty in the armed services;

(3) upon request from the head of an agency with authority under this order, consult with that agency with respect to: (i) the effect of contemplated actions on labor demand and utilization; (ii) the relation of labor demand to materials and facilities requirements; and (iii) such other matters as will assist in making the exercise of priority and allocations functions consistent with effective utilization and distribution of labor;

Notice that the language of the EO does not state “in the event of a national emergency.” Instead, we are given the term “purposes of national defense.” This is because the “authorities” assumed by the President have been assumed not just for arbitrary declarations of “national emergency” but for peacetime as well. Indeed, the EO states this much directly when it says,

The head of each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense is delegated the authority of the President under section 107(b)(1) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2077(b)(1), to take appropriate action to ensure that critical components, critical technology items, essential materials, and industrial resources are available from reliable sources when needed to meet defense requirements during peacetime, graduated mobilization, and national emergency.

Presidential Executive Orders have long been used illegally by Presidents of every political shade and have often been used destroy the rights of American citizens. Although history has often come to judge these orders as both immoral and unconstitutional, the fact is that the victims of the orders suffered no less because of the retroactive judgment of their progeny. It is for this reason that we must immediately condemn and resist such obvious usurpation as is currently being attempted by the U.S. government.

Nevertheless, some have no doubt begun to wonder why the President has signed such an order. Not only that, but why did he sign the order now? Is it because of the looming war with Iran or the Third World War that will likely result from such a conflict? Is it because of the ticking time bomb called the economy that is only one jittery move or trade deal away from total disintegration? Is it because of a growing sense of hatred of their government amongst the general public? Is there a coming natural disaster of which we are unaware? Are there plans for martial law?

Whatever the reason for the recent announcement of Obama’s new Executive Order, there is one thing we do know for sure - “It wouldn’t happen here” has been the swan song of almost every victim of democide in modern human history.

Germany, 1934
by skip Monday, Mar 19 2012, 6:18am

I just linked this story to 80 Americans. I'll post their replies...



Greetings Friends of Me,

I trust you are well.

Life is good.  I've been pursuing my purpose here in Sydney, Australia for almost two years now.  Sleeping out in the fresh air, living without money, and dumpster diving gourmet organic food and Armani suits.  Sunshine and coconuts.

I am writing you specifically to get your feedback on the following article.

Having lived outside of north amerika for so long I find myself wondering just what the vibe on the street is concerning the many recent actions of the executive.

It's often easy to fall prey to hype.  The streets are paved with gold... or the sky is falling.

My initial reaction to the authors intro was to think, "It can't possibly be that bad".

Then I read the fine print... and what the executive order Actually Says.

[Caution; strong language used to describe strong situations.]

Please let me know what You Think and, more importantly, what You are Doing.

Is history repeating?

Sincerely,

Banks/Financial institutions control everything in US

No problem
by Yank#1 Tuesday, Mar 20 2012, 6:12am

I can’t say I see the problem that that author does – or at the very least, I don’t lay blame as squarely as he does on say, the US emperor’s office or the Jews/Zionists.  I do not like the general trends for increasing government involvement and control of society and economy.  I think the ballooning national debt (and personal debt) will pose bigger and bigger problems for us going forward.  I guess a traditional conservative would throw in the “declining moral fiber” as another alarming trend… but that doesn’t interest me.  However, all that being said, I think the link you forwarded is a poorly written bunch of barely understandable hogwash and populist anti-something drivel. 

I don’t think the comparisons and metaphors he makes are accurate (maybe they represent the absolute worst case scenario), I don’t think the facts are accurate (at the very least, they are cherry picked and highly distorted by his own personal interpretations).  And I don’t think the direction we are headed is that dire (there is no sense of mean-regression in his analysis – a very relevant fact when analyzing history).

As regards the executive order… I don’t much like it.  I think its wording is vague enough where you can interpret it evenly and calmly or very direly.  Fundamentally, though I don’t think it changes the ultimate power of government.  I have two main points:  1) if government can aggregate itself that much power based only on a stroke of a pen…you might as well ignore the stroke of the pen…because its an almost unnecessary step. And 2) there is a difference between saying you have the power to do something and having the power to do something.  The American people will probably allow the president (via agencies) to administer disaster relief and energy shortages, but they will not (hopefully) put up with a new form of wholesale theft or authoritarianism (sure its been done in the past…but why hasn’t it been done (much) in our 200+ year history?).

As a final jab on the author, I cannot BELIEVE that he engages in the THEFT of other people’s PROPERTY by being educated in the public INTERNMENT school system.  That fucking LEECH should pay back the people he stole from.  ---  this was just to put some proportion to his statements.

Cleaves is bonkers

I'd love to discuss the issue, but I'm not willing to subject myself to the author's demagoguery in the process.

If there is a more circumspect and rational opinion that outlines the arguments against this EO, I'd happily consider it.

The article you sent is garbage. The writer is riding an emotional binge-high. 

This type of analysis makes the world a more confused place.

I would suggest reading the EO in full (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/03/16/executive-order-national-defense-resources-preparedness) as well as the statutory basis for the EO (http://law.justia.com/codes/us/2010/appendixtotitle50/civilianprotectionfromwar/actaug201954ch77768stat75/titlei/section2071/). 

From a quick reading, the EO says (in my view) "To the extend that I am able, per the authority granted by Congress, I want to do X, Y, Z." 

So it seems like we need to be talking about the 1950 Congress, since that act is the bounding line for the EO.

God's in charge
by Yank#3 Tuesday, Mar 20 2012, 6:18am

Your Dad's(?) reply is, "Christ's kingdom comes; His will will be done.". The future does not belong to distopia."

He say's it's not that big of a deal.  It's just another piece of paper with foolish words on it.

He jokes about pulling out a piece of paper and writing "we take the power back."

stunning American denial and hypocrisy
by ocker Tuesday, Mar 20 2012, 8:14am

no need to address each reply in depth, ALL are avoiding the issue of concentrated power in the Executive or 'monarch' -- which is CLEARLY anathema to the American Bill of Rights and Constitution.

glossing over the unprecedented indefinite detention without trial or charge, law (goodbye rights) and allowing a puppet president power to summarily kill anyone he chooses without proper accountability, is simply nuts/pathological at the very least or insanity at worst, why worry about adding resource appropriation after those 'little' totalitarian gems?

hiding blindly behind Christianity is the height of ignorance, avoidance and hypocrisy -- I can just see Jesus Christ ordering civilian killing Drone attacks, STEALING the resources of other weaker nations and slow-killing 500,000 I-N-N-O-C-E-N-T children in Iraq with embargoes!

But it's all worth it -- isn't it you brainless, hypocritical, complicit criminal American fuckwits?

I apologize for losing it, but what the fuck do you people put in the water over there, geeesh?

It's time to take a REALITY PILL, dreamboats! America is universally reviled because its population, in the main, CONDONES the criminal practices of its Executive -- do you not think that murdering over FIVE million INNOCENT civilians since the Vietnam war comes with a whopping price tag?? America cannot avoid a retaliatory strike in the near future, probably nuclear -- not that YOUR executive gives a shit about the people it can now kill at will?
