Guest Post: America - Government By Terror, Torture and Tyranny

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Authored by Stephen Lendman, originally posted at Jim Quinn's Burning Platform blog,

America governs lawlessly. Out-of-control rogues run things. Conditions go from bad to worse. Tyranny threatens everyone. So does possible global war.

Fear-mongering, saber rattling, hot wars, proxy ones, drone ones, geopolitical ones, financial ones, anti-populist ones, mass incarceration, censorship, lawless sanctions, subversion, sabotage, targeted assassinations, mass murder, cyber-war, and horrific draconian harshness reflect out-of control governance gone mad.

Lying is official policy. So is state terror. Independent governments aren’t tolerated. They’re targeted. Regime change is prioritized. World peace is threatened. Humanity’s menaced. Survival’s uncertain.

Daily revelations explain more. War is called peace. State-sponsored assassins are called freedom fighters. Real ones are called terrorists.

Capital has divine rights. Monied interests run things. Plundering the earth for profit is prioritized. Popular needs go begging. Social America’s dying. Poverty, unemployment, hunger, homelessness and human misery go unaddressed. Corporate rights alone matter.

Democracy’s a four-letter word. Out-of-control power is unaccountable. Rule of law principles are mocked. Tyranny’s the law of the land. Advancing America’s imperium matters most.

Workers are exploited. They’re unprotected. Human and civil rights are sacrificed. Wealth, power and privilege are served. Militarized control supports them. Nonbelievers aren’t tolerated.

Torture is official policy. Gitmo is America’s public face. Innocent detainees suffer. So do many others. Thousands of political prisoners fill America’s gulag. It’s the world’s largest. It operates globally. Mercy isn’t in Washington’s vocabulary.

Diktat power rules. Police state terror threatens everyone. Freedom’s fast disappearing. Dissent’s not tolerated. Heroic whistleblowers are criminalized.

Even retired four star generals aren’t safe. More on that below.
Journalists are spied on. So is everyone worldwide. Big Brother watches everyone. It’s no longer fiction.

Censorship prevents truth and full disclosure. Managed news misinformation substitutes. Students are debt entrapped for life. Millions have no futures. An entire generation’s lost.

Madness substitutes for sanity. Unconscionable wrongdoing persists. America’s unsafe to live in. Oblivion awaits. Most people are too out of touch to notice. Others are dismissive.

Failure to act responsibly matters. It lets Washington get away with murder and much more.

Rogues running America take full advantage. Who knows what’s next.

The Pentagon’s former second in command’s being investigated. General James (Hoss) Cartwright allegedly leaked information higher ups want suppressed.

Cyberwar is official US policy. In spring 2010, Iranian intelligence discovered Stuxnet malware contamination. Its Bushehr nuclear facility was affected. US/Israeli cyber-war bore full responsibility.

Cartwright perhaps explained. He ran cyber-operation Olympic Games. Obama ordered stepped up attacks. Targeting Iran is prioritized.

Perhaps there’s hope if retired four star generals become whistleblowers. Maybe other insiders will be emboldened to act. Legions more than ever are needed. Hopefully many will come forward responsibly.

Edward Snowden provided a vital service. He’s a hero in his own time. He’s globally recognized. He deserves praise, not prosecution. History won’t forget him. He revealed what everyone needs to know.

Unprecedented global spying is official US policy. It’s lawless. Spies “R” us defines it. Police states operate this way. America’s by far the worst. It’s unmatched in human history. No one’s safe anywhere any time.

Shoot the messenger. Snowden’s hunted. He’s a wanted man. Washington wants him arrested. It wants him prosecuted. It wants him imprisoned. It wants him silenced. Perhaps it wants him dead.

It wants information he knows suppressed. London’s Guardian revealed it. It plans telling more. On June 28, it headlined “US army blocks access to Guardian website to preserve ‘network hygiene.’ ”

It wants truth suppressed. It wants its message alone circulated. “The US army has admitted to blocking access to parts of the Guardian website for thousands of defense personnel across the country.”

“A spokesman said the military was filtering out reports and content relating to government surveillance programs to preserve ‘network hygiene’ and prevent any classified material appearing on unclassified parts of its computer systems.”

Pentagon officials lied. Censorship is official US policy. NETCOM On-Line Communication Services operates from San Jose, CA. It’s an Internet service provider.

Spokesman Gordon Van Vleet said it filtered “some access to press coverage and online content about NSA leaks.”

“The Department of Defense routinely takes preventive ‘network hygiene’ measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information onto DoD unclassified networks.”

An Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) spokesman said policy affects hundreds of defense facilities. Doing so suggests far worse future policy.

Washington may block anti-government content. It may do so routinely. Alternative media sites may be targeted. Vital truths more than ever may be suppressed.

Revealing them responsibly risks being criminalized. So may discussing what’s already known. Pointing fingers the right way is dangerous. Doing so risks being charged with aiding and abetting America’s enemies.

Van Vleet added:

“We make every effort to balance the need to preserve information access with operational security, however there are strict policies and directives in place regarding protecting and handling classified information.”

“Until declassified by appropriate officials, classified information – including material released through an unauthorized disclosure – must be treated accordingly by DoD personnel. If a public website displays classified information,” blocking it will follow.

“Classified” includes vital information people have a right to know. Suppressing it reflects police state harshness. Rogue states operate this way. It bears repeating. America’s by far the worst.

According to an unnamed Pentagon spokesman:

“The Guardian website is NOT being blocked by DoD. The Department of Defense routinely takes preventative measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information onto DoD unclassified networks.”

On June 25, Guardian editors headlined “Edward Snowden: in defense of whistleblowers,” saying:

He’s no traitor. America’s First Amendment matters. It “prevents prior restraint and affords a considerable measure of protection to free speech.”

Obama violates its letter and spirit. He’s done so by “show(ing) a dismaying aggression in not only criminalizing leaking and whistle blowing, but also recently placing reporters under surveillance – tracking them and pulling their phone and email logs in order to monitor their sources for stories that were patently of public importance.”

Thanks to Snowden, we know more about what NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake called “a vast, systemic institutionalized, industrial-scale Leviathan surveillance state that has clearly gone far beyond the original mandate to deal with terrorism.”

Snowden is today’s Daniel Ellsberg. Releasing the Pentagon Papers got him targeted. He also faced Espionage Act charges.

He might have gotten life in prison. He was lucky. Gross government misconduct saved him. His 1973 trial collapsed. At the time, judge William Byrne, Jr. ruled:

“The totality of the circumstances of this case which I have only briefly sketched offend a sense of justice.”

“The bizarre events have incurably infected the prosecution of this case.”

Federal judges today don’t speak this way. Ellsberg later said:

“The public is lied to every day by the President, by his spokespeople, by his officers.”

“If you can’t handle the thought that the President lies to the public for all kinds of reasons, you couldn’t stay in the government at that level”

“The fact is Presidents rarely say the whole truth – essentially, never say the whole truth – of what they expect and what they’re doing and what they believe and why they’re doing it and rarely refrain from lying, actually, about these matters.”

Ellsberg’s a modern day hero. So is Snowden. Washington fears ugly truths revealed. Doing so arouses public anger.

Perhaps it emboldens others to tell more. Coming forward threatens America’s imperial ambitions. Preventing them responsibly matters most.

"Lying is official policy."

Thought until I was 40 that this is new.

"history shows us that progress is only possible where governments exist to serve their people and not the other way around," said Obama, in a line that drew loud and prolonged cheers from his audience of more than 1 000 people."

In March 2009, President Obama stated in a special meeting  with the CEOs of the 13 largest investment banks in the country:

 

"My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks."

 

I think he perceives that statement as a badge of courage, but all it demonstrates is that he has run behind the freedom-stomping legs of tyranny and centralized power, completely siding against justice, fairness and individual liberty.

Or maybe that was just a bone thrown to the media to allow them to attempt the appearance of being balanced. They (Edit: the banks) have the power to push Obama out of office by tanking equities, but they won't because Obama is the best TOOL since sliced bread. Holder will not dare go after the criminals of Wall St because that would bring the gallows upon him.

The leaders of the media just love the booty that's being thrown their way by this pathetic administration, and the unpaid fools at the various left wing media outlets enjoy being the fruits of unpaid slave labor.

Foreign powers are now throwing their weight around over the Snowden issue. First China and Hong Kong punked Obama by letting Snowden leave (over his middle name), Ecuador gave America the finger by granting Snowden asylum and Russia is ignoring US requests to stop Snowden from fleeing.

Sounds like American power is waning.

Although I don't have definitive proof of this, I suspect that after 'Brand Obama' was elected the first time, he was ushered into a private screening of the Abraham Zapruder film of Kennedy' assassination.  I'm sure that nothing more would need to be said.  After the second time Obama was elected I suspect he was reminded of MLK.  

CIA analyst Ray McGovern mentioned on a radio show as reported by Philip Weiss on June 3, that 'Obama told friends he reneged on progressive promises out of fear of assassination' http://bit.ly/19NrP2q

The way I look at it, he never had much wiggle room to begin with...

Calling Obama progressive is believing your own b.s. How progressive is Obmacare when the core idea came from the Heritage Foundation? Obama and team thought they could have a slam dunk by adopting the other side's ideas. The reaction from the red team instead was to disavow and complain endlessly. 

Moreover, the first time Obama was elected, people danced in the streets. The second time, not.

Obama is mostly an auto-pilot. It could be worse. By contrast, remember when Cheney floated the idea that a terrist event might delay an election?

well, there is simply not much "newsworthy" going on in the UN at the moment. a lot of it has to do with the fact that the US itself is using much less this channel since Bush junior went on his "coalition of the willing" path instead of convincing the UN about each war, as his own father did

I'm sorry, but I often get the impression that in the US there is a less-than-world-average reporting and understanding about the UN's setup, capabilities and functionalities

as such, I have never heard about an involvement of the UN on the "war on terror" - or do you mean something different with "current terror wars"?

specifically for Syria, the permanent members are anyway at loggerheads, and so paralyzing the UN on this issue. as good an example as any that the UN needs a consensus in order to act

LOL - the short of it is this: "Why have a UN at all?" is a Bush Junior policy that has been followed through since the Iraq war, and it's main thrust is to push it into irrelevancy

after all, the whole reason why you watched those tube debates was because the French, the Russians and the Chinese (all permanent members of the council - i.e. with veto powers) wanted to avoid the Iraq war (and of course Afghanistan)

Ghordius, Bush ain't been president for lo these many years, and HE did send Gen Colin and other adm types there (UN)to debate the Iraq and Afgan "show wars"..are you saying the current Obuma adm is just a dark reflection of lilly white BUSH JR. doppelganger, or does the elite reptile meme have some truth? We all are ruled by a small group of those in the club..who remain unknown and protected from public awareness. Will Snowden  name names? or will this unknown powerful group remain secret to most of us..It's obvious that an unseen hand is moving the world towards some goal, that none of us have a vote in it. Vote a word with as much meaning as marriage in homo gayus America.

Chistian Zionists are the last people on earth I expect to start anything resembling positive change.  Hard core authoritarians, the lot of them them, and "Christian Zionism" itself is nothing more than a creation of the TPTB to delude the easily deluded.  The Christian Bible (all the many versions) is in itself a mass of contradictions but Christian Zionism and Premillenial Dispesationalism take it one step further (or more) by JUST MAKING SHIT UP.  That fact that this is a rather influential attitude in the US is one of the MAJOR reasons I really see no hope for this country.  For most of these assholes, if the "Red Team" was employing these tactics against people THEY didn't like they would be cheering it on like crazy.  Sickening and worse than useless.

Assume a system on a course designed for perpetual growth.  Realize that growth has met its limits and only decline beckons.  Imagine the system has created a severe dependency with a population half dependent upon the other half.  That half is half dependent upon gov't transfer payments and work unsupportable in a free market or any true price discovery environment. Another half of an half of an half is psuedo-gov't employed in military, support, or make-work.  The remainder unnaturally despised.  Assume a social contract which preserves intra-oversight of an executive, legislative, judicial but neglects a check-balance of the money issue, banking, mixed market economy monopolized by a few cartel players.

Assume a capture-the-flag mentality.  Observe that the latter unregulated seeds the prior three constrained entities with pliable lackeys.  Watch as it engulfs and strips the nation.

What response?, if all the sentinels and watchtowers and guardians have been compromised?

The only delaying element of national patricide would be the swiftness by which they can carry off the valuables of the citadel in order to consume them.  The citadel, city upon a hill, is preserved only until it has been stripped of the last vestige of abundance.  Thereafter execution.

Welcome to the backside of a sullied republic.  And no patriot of strength within the system comes forward to check the depredations and diminishment of the people.  What planet, what nation is this?  Oathtakers become oathbreakers.

"The CIA directed forces are among the worst human rights violators in Latin America, responsible for systematic brutality against a civilian population. For its critical role in facilitating the Contra violence, the [United States] Administration must share responsibility as a hemispheric violator of human rights. The Contras have killed, tortured, raped, mutilated and abducted hundreds of civilians they suspect of sympathizing with the Sandinistas. Victims have included peasants, teachers, doctors and agricultural workers."

Don't get me wrong CL, of course pedophiles deserve a fate similar to what you wish, but I've always thought the logic that someone watching or downloading video or pictures of the children pedophiles abuse at least where I come from means a lot of police resources thrown into it, prosecutions where most instances result in jail sentences and yet, what about this other heinous crime? An equally sick mind can download as many videos of these type of killings as they can find on the web and ghoul over them day after day and be guilty of no crime whatsoever! Long ago in the early days of internet, I watched "normal" porn on occasion, then a pop up window with a photo of a terrified little Asian girl being raped by some facless maggot hit my eyes. It almost made me vomit in disgust, a similar reaction that came over me with this Catholic priest murder. (I probably got half way through the second killing because the worst of the first was only audio) I hope you see the point I'm trying to make here.

Secession.

A vigorous secession movement is _inevitable_ barring a total train wreck happening first: if we just keep circling the drain we will see it before too long.

And this time there's no burning issue like slavery to motivate the masses against the 'rebels'. The northeast, west coast, and great lakes region would probably be happy to see the Midwest and South go it on their own.

Centralization always fails, and our problems are so many and varied that only a variety of approaches have any chance of succeeding. That begs for decentralization, and that will only come with secession.

Controlled spoon fed oppostion is no oppostion at all. The spaced out self serving experimental 'educated fool' and 'useful idiot'  '60s generation are the only to leave their offspring worse off - and that is unique in the history of humankind.

Georgia police?! Say what? What about all that civil rights movement and stuff, bringing democracy to the people, and stuff like dat.

Where's Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton at a time like this? Or Schumer. Or Feinstein. Or Pelosi. Or the rest of CONgress?

Making money and war. That's where they are at - despite the objections of the largely peaceful American public who don't want to get shot up for them, and their foreign owners, the nazionists.

Al Sharpton?  Holy shit.  You win the prize for being the first to mention Al Sharpton in years.  Dunno  about the rest of those knuckleheads you mentioned but you get an up arrow for pointing out there hasn't been an "Al Sharpton to the rescue!" incident in a very VERY  long time.

 Nobody's rights are being trampled, I guess.  No minorities being oppressed.  Thank god for Obama.  We are so lucky to have him as President.  All that shit's been straightened right the hell out under his rule.

"Collectivism is a doctrine that holds that the individual has no rights, and the ultimate standard of value is the group to which 'he belongs.' Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors. Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas -- or of inherited knowledge -- which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men. Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination."

There must be something being emitted by all those cell phone towers. Outlandish intrusions on our liberties used to pop up every few years, and in watered down form. Now, it's every week. And what's to stop even a lone deer hunter from Mississippi, from slowly, and methodically popping off these mother fuckers, one piece of shit at a time? Nothing! But no one is doing it. Why? I know for a fact that not every person in America is a coward. It just doesn't make sense. These assholes are out in the open every day. They are not super human. They are like you or I. If you pop a cap in John mccaines, or joe bidens asses, they will crumple up like a wet towel. They don't have force fields protecting them, or some sort of voodoo magic.

If the current charade ends violently by gun, then most people will be destitute.

If the current charade implodes as the money scam ends, then most people of good character will be safe among their genuine community, with enough food, water and other resources to outlast the transition to better times. The USA is blessed with better resources and close communities than most places on earth.

Dirt poor lawless places in the rest of the world have little or nothing to lose from violently defying their corrupt governments, wed to al-CIAda or nazionism.

Shouldn't some of those "other resources" consist of lead, brass, smokeless powder and appropriate delivery systems, just in case the "people of good character" encounter some rough patches during the "transition to better times"?

Hey Lady,

What planet are you from? Power never relents voluntarily, and a people who won't defend themselves from predation, are signing their own death warrants.  But I really loved this:

 most people of good character will be safe among their genuine community

Hahaha! That's a good one! Are you some kind of shutin without access to TV and/or internet (obviously not)? I think you really need to reassess your opinion of your fellow countrymen/women. Here's another beaut:

Dirt poor lawless places in the rest of the world have little or nothing to lose from violently defying their corrupt governments, wed to al-CIAda or nazionism.

Have you ever been out of the country? I'm living under another so-called authoritarian regime now, as I type this, and can unconditionally say that it is infinitally freer than America. And having been all over the world, can tell you, there are plenty of better places than the states, and are not dirt poor. In fact, with the liabilities most Americans have, its pretty safe to say, that outside of Africa, Americans rank as the poorer of the world's peoples.

Lastly, try doing a little research on the Nazis. They in no way resemble Zionists. Like the Jihadis of today, they were the only people defending themselves, and in effect, all of us, from the destructive power of Judaism. Yeah, you can all hate on me now, but you all know down deep that I am right, and someday, when people are less pussified, something will have to be done about that eternally problemed group.

Now...hate on Appologists!

All this is possible due to our good nature, "cognitive dissonance". We may be under some really bad influence but can't come to realize it internally. The mind moves to the middle path...it can't be that bad, or is it?

I don't know about all those things. First of all, we are easy to control. Second of all, even though situation seems unbearable obviously it is not bad enough for a rebellion. Third of all, way too many people don't study history. IF they did they would soon realize that this is nothing new.

Before the war with the British started, people were trying everything they could come up with to avoid a possible war. Most wanted to avoid war because wars cause a lot of pain. True human nature is not about hurting other people. It's only where there is no other choice that rebellions begin. Same was true for France. 

Short, we may be zombies as you say but, people in the Western nations still don't have enough bad things happening to them to take these crucial steps.
