We are a dozen blog-posts behind in our attempt to wish America a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY this Fourth of July, 2013... and to make our fervent wish (if not 'prayer') that this is not the LAST Fourth of July that Americans enjoy before the TOTAL POLICE STATE MARTIAL LAW CLAMP-DOWN that the NEO-CON TRAITORS hope-for, lust after, and are treacherously and treasonously working overtime to bring about... TODAY, AS WE SPEAK.
below, this Nov. 2011 article by Washington's blog Just to reaffirm & point out that the NEO-CON WAR ON AMERICANS was & has been PLANNED LONG, LONG, LONG before 9-11 GAVE the TRAITOR NEO-CON APPARTCHIKS the EXCUSES they needed to use OUR GOVERNMENT TAX-PAYER DOLLARS, to make their "national security" state
(Soviet JEWISH BOLSHEVIK COMMISSAR style WAR & POLICE/PRISON-STATE GULAG style repression & dictatorship)
far more important than OUR AMERICAN rights & FREEDOMS...
Iran War Threats, Militarization of American Police and Spying on Americans All Started BEFORE 9/11Many things which we’ve been told have only happened recently actually started a long time ago.
For example, the mainstream media claims that Iran is close to building a nuclear weapon. But the Christian Science Monitor notes that the U.S. has been claiming for more than 30 years that Iran was on the verge of nuclear capability.
And the decision to threaten to bomb Iran was made before 9/11.
As another example, journalists from across the spectrum have documented the militarization of police forces in the United States, including, CNN, Huffington Post, Forbes, Esquire, The Atlantic, Salon, and theCato Institute.
Indeed, police shooting peaceful “occupy” protesters with rubber bullets, tear gas and other projectiles and brutally beating them has brought this issue to the attention of the American public. See this, thisand this.
But the militarization of police started long before 9/11 … in the . As Radley Balko testified before the House Subcommittee on Crime:
Militarization [of police forces is] a troubling trend that’s been on the rise in America’s police departments over the last 25 years.
, Mr. Chairman, thanks to acts passed by the U.S. Congress, millions of pieces of surplus military equipment have been given to local police departments across the country.
We’re not talking just about computers and office equipment. Military-grade semi-automatic weapons, armored personnel vehicles, tanks, helicopters, airplanes, and all manner of other equipment designed for use on the battlefield is now being used on American streets, against American citizens.
Academic criminologists credit these transfers with the dramatic rise in paramilitary SWAT teams over the last quarter century.
SWAT teams were originally designed to be used in VIOLENT, EMERGENCY situations like hostage takings, acts of terrorism, or bank robberies. From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, that’s primarily how they were used, and they performed marvelously. . And Huffington Post notes:
Former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper published an essay arguing that the current epidemic of police brutality is a reflection of the militarization (his word, not mine) of our urban police forces, the result of years of the “war on drugs” and the “war on terror.
[ DESPITE her so-called "liberal" myth/perception, DIANNE FEINSTEIN is a LEADING PROPONENT of the STATE TERROR WAR AGAINST AMERICAN marijuana users. ]
Stamper was chief of police during the World Trade Organization protests in Seattle in 1999, and is not a voice that can be easily dismissed.
(And see this.)
Many other things which we’ve been told happened after 9/11 actually occurred beforehand as well.
After 9/11 the government drew up the Patriot Act within 20 days and it was passed.
The Patriot Act is huge and I remember someone asking a Justice Department official how did they write such a large statute so quickly, and of course the answer was that (4:30 into waiting for the "event" where they would pull it out.this video).
