The Steady Creep Towards Fascism in the US Continues

Not good:
President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13528 on January 11.

Among other things, the Executive Order (EO) established a Council of Governors, an "advisory panel" chosen by the President that will rubber-stamp long-sought-after Pentagon contingency plans to seize control of state National Guard forces in the event of a "national emergency."

According to the White House press release, the ten member, bipartisan Council was created "to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State Governments to protect our Nation against all types of hazards."

"When appointed" the announcement continues, "the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities."

Clearly designed to weaken the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which bars the use of the military for civilian law enforcement, EO 13528 is the latest in a series of maneuvers by previous administrations to wrest control of armed forces historically under the democratic control of elected state officials, and a modicum of public accountability.

One consequence of moves to "synchronize and integrate" state National Guard units with those of the Armed Forces would be to place them under the effective control of United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM), created in 2002 by Bushist legislators in both capitalist parties under the pretext of imperialism's endless "War on Terror." At the time, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called USNORTHCOM's launch "the most sweeping set of changes since the unified command system was set up in 1946."

This is IMO one of the worst. It parallels what the German Nazis did RE their local police.

It was, and will be, used to prevent the states' and cites' police forces from offering any armed resistance to the federal Regime.

It means we are close to the "Final Solution" to us, whether that will be outright mass murder, "work camps" ["Arbeit macht Frei" was a way to fool newcomers that they were there to work] or something else--such as quick death from chemtrails, forced vaccinations, etc.

It probably also means attempted total gun removal from the citizenry may be imminent. And maybe they feel they should federalize and gestapoize all local police first--lest they aid uprising citizens who refuse to hand over their guns.

The People, of course, must never hand in their guns. Instead if the above happens, it means it is time to use them.

That time has actually been for decades now. For example, when the federal regime (and not "rogue elements") killed President Kennedy was the appropriate time.

Many people realized what Obama's election meant, hence the run on ammo since he was "elected." Many, like myself, realized the front he offered (a "Constitutional scholar" and "liberal" or such) in fact signaled end-stage destruction of the Constitution.

That is what Obama has provided in all arenas since his [s]election.

And that the same PTB govern the rest of the world--not just the USA--was signaled when the Nobel Committee gave this warmongering monster a Nobel Peace Prize. That is just a continuation of worldwide approval of the American regime's blatant aggressive wars waged on Iraq and Afghanistan.

Instead of getting together to stop the USA for waging those wars, many Euro and Asian countries aided those Wars of Aggression.

All this shows that each citizen has no one else but him- or herself to fight back. And any resistance to fighting back must be countered by visualizing being put in one of the Nazi "concentration" camps, and the ensuing "events"!

In all likelihood, American camps will be worse.

Exactly how would incarcerating millions of citizens help further the efforts of well-off members of society become even more well off?

A handful of people at the top is one thing, but there are millions of people who do pretty well and are smart enough to realize the negative consequences of a collapsed economy and ensuing anarchy.

Most corporate lackeys will go along with anything their co's do, but most entrepreneurs are too independent to allow some fool like Obama to do anything much more radical than what he's already doing.

Arbeit macht müde!

If a government is serious about protecting the citizens from terrorism, it issues them guns. Proof that it is the opposite.

But this only applies if the citizens pay for the government, which is not the case, except perhaps the forest service.

The nasty side (most) of government pays for itself with loans and funny money (which does come back on Joe SixLite). The interest on the debt is paid for with part of the new loan, hence no tax increase and Joe is cool. The exception to the citizen contribution is that some of them hold treasury notes.

Collateral for the loans ($600 billion out of 1.9 trillion, foreign in 2009) is likely the personal bank accounts of the Ruling Elite, but like derivatives, these disappear when pay-up time comes, and the "government" bails them out. But in this case, it is war or huge tax increases, but on what with the economy in the pits?

Ewas ist schief gegangen!

The model for citizens and guns has be the Swiss. This is rapidly disappearing, as they are also a US clone, now. A year ago they (s)elected to approve an electronic pass (every thing about your ass is on a card and connectible to the Geheime Staats Polizei computer.)

Citizens are still shaking the head over the results of the Wahl, 51 to 49. It seems it was more like 20 percent margin against until the final vote. Seems familiar.

I think in some respects, this order merely formalizes a reality, a practice, that has been in force for several years. For example, in the state of Iowa, the pentagon has been in constant contact with the governor, since, at least in name, he is the head of the State National Guard. The state civilian political leadership has been caught up in the military chain of command. People who claim the "continutiy of government" plan has been in force for several years are correct in this regard, at least.

Fascism, anybody? Become a democrat.

"Guantanamo is a recruiting tool for terrorists that undermines our troops and undermines our security."

I was all wrong on the reasons!
