Americans Are Being Prepared For Full Spectrum Tyranny

Totalitarian governments, like persistent forms of cancer, have latched onto the long history of man, falling and then reemerging from the deep recesses of our cultural biology to wreak havoc upon one unlucky generation to the next.  The assumption by most is that these unfortunate empires are the product of bureaucracies gone awry; overtaken by the chaotic maddening hunger for wealth and power, and usually manipulated by the singular ambitions of a mesmerizing dictator.  For those of us in the Liberty Movement who are actually educated on the less acknowledged details of history, oligarchy and globalized centralism is much less random than this, and a far more deliberate and devious process than the general unaware public is willing consider.  

Unfortunately, the final truth is very complex, even for us… 

One cannot place the blame of despotism entirely on the shoulders of globalists.  Sadly, the crimes of elites are only possible with a certain amount of complicity from subsections of the populace.  Without our penchant for apathy and fear, there can be no control.  That is to say, there is no power over us but that which we give away.  We pave the road to our own catastrophes.

In the end, a tyrant’s primary job is not to crush the masses and rule out of malevolence, but to obtain the voluntary consent of the citizenry, usually through trickery and deceit.  Without the permission of the people, subconscious or otherwise, no tyranny can survive.

As with the oppressive regimes of the past, America has undergone a dramatic transformation, heavy with fear and ignorance.  Our tradition of elections has been corrupted and negated by the false left/right paradigm, and the leaderships of both defunct parties now seek only to elevate a select minority of men bent on globalization.  Our Constitutional liberties have been dismantled by legal chicanery.  Our principles have been diluted by intellectual games of rationalism and moral relativism.  Our country is ripe for conquest. 

Americans battle over whose side is most to blame; Democrat or Republican, while ironically being disenchanted with both entities.  For some people, the thought of holding each party equally accountable, or accepting that they are essentially the same animal, never crosses their minds. 

While this irrelevant farce of a debate rages on, the true culprits plotting the demise of our Republic gain momentum, and implement policy initiatives that the public should and must take note of.  In the past year alone, many blatant steps towards the Orwellian gulag have been openly administered.  A carnival of peddlers and freaks and greasy popcorn overwhelms our senses, but the stench of this cheap circus still tickles our noses, and if we use our eyes for even a moment, certain dangerous trends reveal themselves.  Here are just a few recent events that bear a dire warning; the ultimate assault on freedom in this nation grows near…

Acclimation To Subservience

Every totalitarian state worth its salt has its own goon squad.  The Nazi’s had the “Brownshirts”, the Soviets had the “Militsiya” and the “Voluntary People’s Brigade”, the Communist Chinese have the “Chengguan”, etc.  In America, however, all tyrannical measures are given innocuous bureaucratic labels to mislead and distract the masses.  In this country, we have the Transportation Security Administration…

The TSA has become the most hated alphabet agency in the U.S. in perhaps the fastest time on record.  It has violated the personal rights of more people on a daily basis in my view than the IRS, DEA, and the ATF combined.  Clearly, this slobbering demon child of the Department of Homeland Security is being molded for something quite terrible and grand. 

When confronted by the public on the use of irradiating and intrusive naked body scanner technology, the agency responded by allowing their blue handed ghoul army with to molest our nether-regions.  When confronted by state and local governments on their absurd tactics, the TSA threatened economic blockades and airport shutdowns.  The organization then began expanding its jurisdiction to bus and train stations and even our highways when it introduced the VIPR program and implemented random roadside checkpoints in Tennessee last year.  But, this behavior is nothing compared to what is next on the horizon: a compromise…

Beware of government agencies bearing gifts.  The TSA along with the International Air Transport Association has announced a new methodology of “less intrusive” passenger screening measures, in order to address the concerns of the public over pat downs and irradiating naked body scanners.  This SOUNDS like a step in the right direction, and a proper response to the grievances of the citizenry.  Instead, it turns out to be a refined example of totalitarianism in motion, and a perfect lesson in how the masses can be duped into handing over their inherent freedoms.

Revamped security protocols call for biometric data collection, including fingerprint and retina scans, and a tunnel which combines multiple detection systems into one area (who knows how radioactive this will end up being):

The mainstream article above makes this development sound like a win/win scenario for everyone, painting biometric data collection as a matter of convenience, but it also reveals the true design of the system; to illicit voluntary subservience:

“The key to speeding up checkpoints and making security less intrusive will be to identify and assess travelers according to the risks they pose to safety in the skies. The so-called riskiest or unknown passengers would face the toughest scrutiny, including questioning and more sensitive electronic screening. Those who voluntarily provide more information about themselves to the government would be rewarded with faster passage…”

They enforce destructive anti-personal rights policies then pretend to acquiesce by replacing them with a technocratic nightmare grid which requires the cataloging of our very genetic essence in order to function.  The only remaining injustice left would be to apply this grid to the rest of the country outside of the airports and train stations, which I assure you, they plan to do. 


Last week, I covered the disturbing use of armored vehicles (APC’s or urban tanks) in open training regiments on the streets of St. Louis by the U.S Army, despite the fact that all of their exercises could have easily been accomplished on any number of military bases across the country.  The action is an obvious attempt to condition the American populace to the sight of military units operating in a policing capacity:

I received multiple letters from current serving military who stated that in all their years in the armed forces they had never seen such a brash mishandling of public relations or an overstepping of bounds when it came to the restrictions of Posse Comitatus.  It was encouraging to hear from military men and women who did not agree with or condone this kind of psyop activity on the part of our government. 

Though the St. Louis event is not isolated, I believe it does represent an escalation.  

Remember the controversy over the Mayor of Toledo and his refusal to allow 200 Marines to conduct urban combat drills on the public streets of his city in 2008?  The media clamored to crucify this public official; one of the few who had any sense whatsoever in his head:

Or the tactical exercises using helicopters and combat troops over LA and Chicago early this year?

During each one of these events, city officials and local media attempted to inoculate the public with claims that they were “simply exercises”.  This argument misses the point entirely.  Whether or not these are “exercises” is not the issue.  The issue is that this training could be done ON BASE.  Using public streets and running drills within cities is absolutely unnecessary given the vast resources already available to the military, unless, of course, the goal is to BE SEEN by the public and to influence them to view the sight of armed troops around them as “normal”.

Add to this the fact that many of these military training exercises are being conducted in tandem with local police department, and you have a recipe for the utter militarization of our society, turning peace officers into combat soldiers, and combat soldiers into law enforcement mechanisms; a juxtaposition that will soon lead to unmitigated disaster.

Arms Race Against the People?

When a country is quietly preparing for war, the first signs are usually revealed by a disclosure of armaments.  If stockpiling is taking place without a warranted threat present from a legitimate enemy, there is a considerable likelihood of aggression on the part of that nation.  America has gone well beyond the psychological process of militarization and has begun the extensive arming of particular agencies whose primary purpose revolves around the domestic. 

The DHS, for instance, placed an order for over 450 million rounds of hollowpoint .40 cal ammunition in April of this year:

And it placed an order for over 7000 new semi-automatic combat rifles chambered in .223 (5.56 by 45mm NATO) immediately after:

While local police through federal programs (like the 1033 Program) are being given millions of dollars in free military equipment, including body armor, night vision equipment, APC's, aircraft, first aid supplies, weapons, surveillance equipment, Kevlar helmets, gas masks and filters, vehicles, etc.:

All of this equipment, though issued to state agencies, is still heavily tracked and regulated by the federal government, making it clear that these “gifts” come with strings attached:

And finally, new FAA regulations will soon allow the dispersion of tens of thousands of predator drones with armament capability in the skies of the U.S. over the course of the next few years:

Now, anyone with any logic would ask who it is that the government is arming itself and local police to fight against?  Al Qaeda?  Let’s not be naïve…

The passage of the NDAA and its provisions for the indefinite detainment of ANY person, even an American citizen, under the laws of war has ended the debate over government intent in terms of domestic action.  FBI Director Robert Mueller’s admission that he “did not know” if assassination programs would be used against American citizens also heaped evidence on the matter.  The bottom line?  Our government wishes to label and treat citizens as enemy combatants.  Of course they would then organize armaments to follow through on their policy.

Pulling The Trigger

All despotic systems have another distinct similarity; they each began with a series of trigger events which opened the door to tighter controls over the population.  The most immediate trigger event for the U.S. is the looming peril of a collapsing economy followed by inevitable civil unrest.  With the EU currently in debt shambles, global markets are on the verge of a considerable breakdown.  The Federal Reserve response will be predictable; QE3 and massive stimulus all around to mitigate the crisis.  This time, though, the go-to Keynesian quick fix will not work in the slightest.  In fact, it will make matters more untenable by placing the world reserve status of the dollar at risk.

Everything that has happened so far in the markets this year has been easy to foresee.  Alt-Market predicted the economic slowdown around the world and the collapse of overall demand using the Baltic Dry Index as a gauge back in January:

We also predicted the accelerated turmoil in the EU in light of the recent election results in France and Greece:

If alternative economic analysts can predict these developments despite the manipulated statistics spewed out by the government every month, then I think the government and our central bank has a tremendously transparent view of what is coming down the road in terms of financial distress.  I believe the establishment is very well aware of a potential crisis event, economic or otherwise, that is barreling down upon the U.S.  I believe the evidence shows that they are preparing for this eventuality in a command and control fashion, without alerting the public to the coming implosion.  I believe they will use the despair that flows forth from the fiscal wreckage as an excuse to institute martial law. 

Call it "crazy".  Call it “conspiracy theory”.  Call it “coincidence”.  Call it "fear mongering".  Whatever you like.  I find it far more insane to shrug off the strange and twisted behavior of our power structure, and simply hope that it’s all irrelevant to the future.  Whenever I run into starry eyed historical romanticists who look back in astonishment at the tyrannies of the past and wonder out loud, “How could those people have not known where their country was headed?!!”, I think of where we are today…

American Muslims Stone Christians in Dearborn, MI (Original edit)

There's not much to say after watching this video, all that is left is action.  Will the three percent rise to the challenge?

pretty blatent mind control effort, don't you think?  I mean really, is the "evil muslim" meme getting old for you yet?  haven't figured out that "terrorism" was the replacement for soviet threat?  should we kill every single brown person so we can move on to the next government approved threat?  please.

No, I am willing to stand up to an "Arab Spring" in America before it gets started.   Granted the Christians in the video were much like the Nazis in Skokie, IL, (there to provoke a reaction) but they do have a Constitutional right to free speech.  The police are supposed to protect this right, for all groups no matter how vile their speech (ie the Westboro Baptist Church).   The police knew that this group would be there, they knew it would create a "situation", yet they sided with the rock and bottle throwers to remove the Christians.

The "melting pot" has grown cold, and sub-groups are forming.  There will be battles, civil wars, gangland style violence, etc...   Ignore it at your own peril.

Confused's picture

Now that the whole country has been programmed to fear "muslims," is it possible that this little event is to help divide those who would otherwise band together to stop any form of tyranny that threatens us all?


First they came for the.....and all that.

its a friggin game.  wake up.  divide and conquer is the oldest play in the book.  expect race bait and and muslim baiting to increase going forward... all by design so you forget who really is fucking you.

And what if they use flexible leashes (or no leash at all) that do not restrict the dog to an action radius?

Then maybe this might help:

EXCELLENT video FEDbuster!

Christianity needs to realize the dire threat International Islam poses.  Don't forget 19 Arabs with boxcutters commanded by a man on dialysis from a cave made NORAD stand down, and knocked down 3 skyscrapers with 2 planes.


The only hope for Christianity is to send your children to the middle east to fight in multiple theaters for extended periods of time.  Remember we Jews are God's chosen people, Israel is your greatest ally, and her security is paramount.


Zionist Christians, your allegiance is appreciated ;-)

The "Christians" in the video are a bunch of meatheads doing their best to be obnoxious and provocative. They were "attacked" because they were assholes.

FEDbuster's picture

Even "assholes" have speech rights protected by the First Ammendment.  The city of Dearborn will now lose another freedom of speech lawsuit like the one they lost last year.

stiler's picture


 They were "attacked" because they were assholes.

No, they were assholes because they were attacked. What would you have done, gone home? They have rights. Moslems only recognize the rights of Allah; to kill, maim etc etc in his name. I think they were there to preach. But I would agree that they probably should have just found another place to preach, because it isn't a good example to harm others in the name of Jesus. Better to be harmed. I think if not for the police there they would have killed a few of the Christians.

Reminds me of the pre-Baltic War of the !990's when Serbian propaganda stated that Serbian babies had been murdered and thrown in a river for all to see. 'T'was a freaking hoax, but some were ready to SWEAR they had witnessed the event.

And you thought we'd be that stupid falling for your bullshit?

Fascism in Amsterdam!

"City considers using "naked scans" in the street.

Mayor of Amsterdam Van der Laan considers to put "naked scans" in the street.

The police is investigating the possibillity to put these mobile bodyscans into effect. The "scanning poles" that can "see" through clothing, should be a welcome addition to "preventive searches".
"Scanning Poles" are detection gates in which through röntgen radiation can be detected if a person is carrying a weapon. The investigation (research) of the police into the possibillities of the use of such "Scanning Poles" in Amsterdam is in progress at this moment" the mayor writes to the city council.
Not everyone is happy with the idea. For example the political party D66. "Preventive searching is already a heavy measure: You're being stopped, selected, and seached from top to bottom. A mobile bodyscanner that can look through clothing using radiation is really a few steps too far. The police doesn't have to know everything of the Amsterdam citizen" says Jan Patermotte, head of the branch of the political party."

Apart from the blatant violation of the principle of the law (a person is innocent until proven guilty), there's the huge elephant in the room. Be it the bodyscanners the TSA uses or these Röntgen radiation emitting scanners (perhaps they're the same) they are CANCER CAUSING.

NO ONE should be submitted to this Tetrahertz or Röntgen emitters since they BOTH damage DNA.

WAKE UP, the totalitarian state is encroaching upon us.

Time to fight some fascists. :-(

Maybe more is coming, but then again, maybe not. Freedom in practical terms is not about how much freedom you have in some abstract legal sense, but in what practical terms the government directly inserts itself into your personal life day to day.

Because a law that is never enforced is not a law in practical terms. Look at the immigration issue. If Obama does not enforce the law, then the law is nullified. For quite some time the government has had the power to confiscate all yor property without trial under Asset Forfeiture laws, and the IRS could audit almost anyone anytime and find violations and give a huge fine. But how often does this happen? Rarely and is still a newsworthy story when the law is clearly abused.

I agree that losing a legal protection is a bad thing, but that is not the worst of it; the worst of it is when the government actually enforces the bad laws.

Most people do not get upset by legal changes, but do get upset when those legal changes start to affect their daily lives. In VA they passed some draconian traffic fine laws, and the public issued not a peep of complaint until the state actually started implementing that law, then it was the Apocolypse! lol

So dont get outraged now, now is not the time. Now is the time to prepare your resources, make friends with people of a similar mind, be optimiistic about life and observe what the government can and cannot do and how to evade those things. Wait for hubris and power mongering drive the wannabe dictators into rash action and over play their hands, and then see what happens. The American people will not live under tyrrany in terms of real practical ACTION from the government.

When/if the time comes that the government does start throwing people in jail for not having health insurance, for expressing verbotten thoughts, for doing any of the millions of things already illegal, then you have recourse. Raising a rucuss and making pointless threats now only makes you look like a hothead and gets the attention of the PTB, and this is not the time for that.

Till that day comes, try to be more positive about your life and pleasant to be around. Remember, the left is where it is now and 80 years ago in this country they had a much worse position than their opposition has today. And yet they were patient, positive and look where they are now. Why cant we be as patient and positive? Why cant we be as cunning and prescient?

Cheer up, the bastards havent killed our Republic yet.

margaris's picture

thank you, you are absolutely right.

We have come far. A good life full of freedom and prosperity is all we can wish for, and we have to continue to strive for those things.

Always believe in hope and change.

They tried to ruin those wonderful words HOPE and CHANGE with the puppet obama in the exact same way george orwell describes in 1984 (newspeak). By destroying and taking away the meaning of words, they try to manipulate us in our thought process. Language is incredibly important for freedom and dissent, and those are the highest forms of patriotism.

*SOME of the American people will not live under tyranny ...

There fixed if for ya. We are the minority buddy.

I think this will separate the men from the are either pro-tyranny or you are an enemy of the state. There will be no middle ground.

Agree with a lot oof that, but Rambo, lol, you need to reign yourself in till the time is right. Dont let your emotions control you.

Use the time you have to note who you know is a likely friend in this regard and who is not. It will be useful later.

History is full of dead warriors who charged before the trumpets sounded.

Wait and see what happens?  Did that work for the Jews in Hitler's Germany?  Intellectuals in Mao's China?  Dissenters in Stalin's Russia?

What is a Three Percenter?

"During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders' Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any further circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders' Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic."


JimBowie1958's picture

You have your numbers on the Tories and Revolutionaries backwards as only between 15% and 20% were Tories and most of the rest of the poulation supported the revolt.

And why? Because American leaders did not jump the gun and try to revolt in the earlier stages of British provocation and despotism. We did not revolt over the Stamp Act or the Tea Tax. We did not revolt when the King ordered Americans to quarter his troops. Our leaders were patient and took every available opportunity to AVOID revolution because they knew how unlikely victory was. What they did was out of desperation, principle and the love of a native liberty that was alien to those back in England.

You want to bang the war drums, go ahead, the FBI might thank you for your efforts later, if you arent just another FBI provocateur in the first place.

Oh, yeah, Stalin, Mao and the other dictators came about AFTER SUCCESSFUL REVOLUTIONS. With a revolution, you dont always get what you pay for even if you win.

FEDbuster's picture

You are right, we should just sit around typing on the computer and see what happens.   NDAA, Obamacare, UN Small Arms Treaty, etc....  Maybe you will meet some like minded people to talk to in your cattle car on your way to the FEMA camp? 

Ron Paul has warned everyone of what is coming.  Maybe my Ron Paul Revolution bumper sticker will provoke a knock on my door by the jackboots, who knows anymore?

"Look at the immigration issue."

Um... that would be "Look at the illegal immigration issue."  PLEASE, people, get this STRAIGHT!  I've got a wife who immigrated LEGALLY, and I resent people helping perpetuate this, what should be clear to all, divide and conquer propaganda.

BTW - You can have your "republic."  Good luck hanging on to it, especially considering that it would ALWAYS evolve into EXACTLY what we now have: it's based on perpetual growth, and w/o dealing with This FUNDAMENTAL/ROOT issue you're only going to be belching about how various platitudes didn't hold/materialize because people weren't member of whatever "club."

You are all getting worried about nothing ,we will be going to war with Russia and China way before we start a revolution, the only pepole in America who are okay about getting off the sofa are in the army, the rest of us , well this revolution should have started by now and I am as much to blame as you are . So who is up for an armed march on the white house to take our shit back.

Seer's picture

"the only pepole in America who are okay about getting off the sofa are in the army,"

Well, I look outside and I don't see them around.  Must be me and my wife, and not folks from the army, doing all the work on our property...

"So who is up for an armed march on the white house to take our shit back."

A "march!"  I really love a parade! (yeah, that would get me away from doing all that hard work on my property, great idea!)

What is it that you're expecting to take back?  Fiat?  A mechanism to extract money from yourself? ("look! I push this button and it takes money out of This pocket and then it puts it in my other pocket! well, except a 'bit' of it doesn't make the transfer, but... well, pretty cool, huh? oh, and I get to make armies and such, armies that protect me from, well, myself?")

Yeah... You're likely right on the Russia and China part though.

Is there a mandate for that?

Good question that gets to the heart of govt:

How does a govt system deal with the Predators and the slovenly Irresponsible at the same time. And when the numbers of both increase as they seem to have done lately what extremes will govt go to???

It's always out of some Hollywood movie, isn't it?

How about the more mundane, the way that it usually occurs, something like starvation due to the food system being turned down?  I mean, why bother with all this messy stuff that requires you to clean up?  Starving people have to clean up after themselves because, well, because their poor, starving people and we don't fucking care about them, right?

They have to treat you: it would be a pre-existing condition.
