Viewing Police State / Military NEWS articles 1 through 69 of 69.
- Scandals Confront Military Security Industry
- The call for militarism qua militarism is buttressed by treacherous charges of cowardice. It relies on Mafia-like appeals to credibility in the threat to use violence and on chilling calls to "honor the dead" with more dead.
- Miami Police have announced plans to conduct what they are calling "high profile ID sweeps" where they intend to check the identification of everyone entering a public building.
- In other words, some military gumshoe or over-zealous commander just has to decide that someone is "a threat to" the military.
- According to the latest edition of the "Active Duty Military Personnel Strengths by Regional Area and by Country," published by the Defense Department’s Directorate for Information Operations and Reports (DIOR), the U.S. has troops in 142 countries.
- The U.S. Strategic Command announced yesterday it had achieved an operational capability for rapidly striking targets around the globe using nuclear or conventional weapons, after last month testing its capacity for nuclear war against a fictional country believed to represent North Korea.
- Our rulers may not be alchemists, able to turn base metal into gold, but they know how to turn humans into sheep. Well might we ask about this remarkable trick; cui bono?
- No one is sure how well psychological operations have worked in Afghanistan or Iraq, but that's not stopping efforts to step them up, using contractors to do it.
- Telephones records, correspondence, financial records, even records of what people read online at a public library--all are fair game for the Feds under the PATRIOT Act. The FBI simply has to claim that the records are “sought for” or “relevant to” an investigation “to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities.”
- Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV. And you think you’re so clever and class less and free. But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see.
- I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution "a goddamned piece of paper."
- The names and licenseplate numbers of about 30 people who protested three years ago in Colorado Springs were put into FBI domestic-terrorism files...
- The Condor nations were the first to practice the art of rendition. Their prisoners became known as the "disappeared." Today, suspected terrorists who have been rendered by the CIA to other nations such as Jordan, Egypt, Morocco or Romania are known as "ghost detainees."
- Before he was "elected" (appointed) in 2000, Bush "joked" about dictatorship and said it would be fine and dandy by him so long as he was the dictator. Now we have this authoritarian cretin on record trashing the Constitution and the corporate media does not take note and for obvious reason—the corporate media is owned by the same "free trade" (unhindered depredation) marauders and amoral charlatan neolibs that own the government and just about every whore (politician) in Congress.
- Most Americans carry cellphones, but many may not know that government agencies can track their movements through the signals emanating from the handset.
- The media center in Fayetteville, N.C., would be the envy of any global communications company. The center is not part of a news organization, but a military operation, and those writers and producers are soldiers. The 1,200-strong psychological operations unit based at Fort Bragg turns out what its officers call "truthful messages" to support the United States government's objectives...
- State lawmakers have crafted a bill that, if passed, would make New Hampshire the first state in the nation to regulate so-called "spy chips" in an effort to protect consumer privacy.
- It’s a message customized for dim-witted Americans driving around in 6.5L turbo diesel Hummers with chrome wheels, whip antennas, and "Desert Rat" insignia above multiple "Support Our Troops" magnetic ribbons: if Congress does not renew the Constitution destroying USA Patriot Act, according to our fearless ruler, it "might lead to terrorist violence..."
- Since Sept. 11, the CIA has played a vital role in the war on terror. But what role is it? Operating in the shadows, American secret services have been given wide-ranging powers by the Bush Administration. And they include murder, abduction and torture.
- Once it is passed into law, the bill will extend sweeping attacks on democratic rights and consolidate a vast expansion of the powers of the state to spy on law-abiding individuals.
- WTF? Call me naive, but I've never heard of a secret law. I've heard of secret courts and secret evidence — which are bad enough already — but not secret laws. When did this happen?
- If you appear "suspicious" or are of Costa Rican or Arab heritage or didn’t take your bipolar meds, you may want to stay away from airports, train stations, ferries, and mass transit in general.
- Secret database obtained by NBC News tracks "suspicious" domestic groups
- ...a Swiss senator investigating Bush’s rape and torture gulag and macabre sadism flying circus, reveals what many of us have long suspected: the CIA had more than a little help from "national secret services" in Europe, thus making a case for the obvious—the CIA is but one of several components of a larger and more sinister global covert "intelligence" organization. However, key players and prime motivators in this sprawling murder, black op, and torture infrastructure consist of elements in the CIA, MI6, and Mossad ...
- More than 250 unsuspecting patients eligible for compensation, according to Canadian ruling. Critics of CIA-funded mind control programs call attention to the fact they are still going on today, as referenced in declassified documents calling attention to sinister operations called Bluebird/Artichoke and MKULTRA.
- Blackwater is one of many symptoms of a very sick America.

- Militarized Federal Police All Over The Streets With The Precedent to Kill
- ...the Washington Post and the New York Times, the latter having "broke" this story (because the government wants us to know they are snooping us), were long ago folded into the CIA’s sprawling propaganda unit under Operation Mockingbird, so it should be no surprise they would attempt to tell us there are "legal prohibitions" when in fact various intelligence agencies...are free to run wild, subverting both indigenous political movements and foreign resistance efforts against the neocon-neolib version of reality, which is in fact a global slavery and death camp engineered to service a miniscule corporate and banking elite.
- President Bush signed a secret order in 2002 authorizing the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on U.S. citizens and foreign nationals in the United States, despite previous legal prohibitions against such domestic spying, sources with knowledge of the program said last night.

He was later visited at his parents' home in New Bedford by two agents of the Department of Homeland Security, the professors said.
- Without calling it TIA, our government too has begun massively snooping on Americans' private communications. Carnivore--a software program that allows the Feds to scan all Internet communications for certain key words--is already in operation.
- From Able Danger to Oklahoma City, evidence of domestic intelligence
- Pentagon political spying took place in the following states and the District of Columbia: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
- The Army met its recruiting goal for November by again accepting a high percentage of recruits who scored in the lowest category on the military’s aptitude tests...
- Bush and Pentagon will counter NBC story with the 'terror card,' a move that will play well in the heartland. It's all 'good theatre' as the Patriot Act and real civil rights abuses on the streets get lost in the shuffle.
- How many Americans have "suspected ties to terrorist groups" and thus deserve “eavesdropping” as deemed appropriate by the Bushcons? It depends how you define "terrorist group."

- Next attack will give Globalists reason to blame "Constitution huggers," NSA spying leak part of the disinfo
- Grant Goodman on Monday showed the Journal-World a recent letter he had received from a friend in the Philippines; it apparently had been opened, then re-closed with green tape bearing the seal of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a message that it had been opened "by Border Protection."
- As a result of decades of complacency created in part by the fog of television, and the ongoing corporatization of the government, the American people find themselves the victims of creeping fascism. Like the proverbial frog placed in a pot of warm water upon a lighted stove, we hardly notice the gradual loss of our freedoms. By the time we awaken to reality—if we ever awaken—we will find ourselves parboiled. By then it will be too late to extricate ourselves.
- "It's strange how easily we forget. COINTELPRO; industry's arson, insurance fraud & strategic PR campaigns to divide & conquer its opposition of responsible citizens. ELF and its alleged crimes are far more likely to be one or all of the above rather than "us."

- Undercover New York City police officers have conducted covert surveillance in the last 16 months of people protesting the Iraq war, bicycle riders taking part in mass rallies and even mourners at a street vigil for a cyclist killed in an accident, a series of videotapes show.
- American prisons are full of wrongfully convicted persons. Many were coerced into admitting to crimes they did not commit by prosecutors’ threats to pile on more charges. Others were convicted by false testimony from criminals bribed by prosecutors, who exchanged dropped charges or reduced sentences in exchange for false testimony against defendants.
- In search of a terrorist nuclear bomb, the federal government since 9/11 has run a far-reaching, top secret program to monitor radiation levels at over a hundred Muslim sites in the Washington, D.C., area, including mosques, homes, businesses, and warehouses, plus similar sites in at least five other cities, U.S. News has learned. In numerous cases, the monitoring required investigators to go on to the property under surveillance, although no search warrants or court orders were ever obtained...
- Tyrannical police states have certain universal characteristics.
- Latest bill of rights evisceration: Ohio Patriot Act arrests for not showing ID
- For some reason the fact the NSA is snooping on Americans at the behest of Bush and the Straussian neocons is big news these days. In fact, the NSA has snooped on people considered enemies of the state for years, most recently through its Echelon technology.
- Student admits he lied about Mao book
- Deep in a remote, fog-layered hollow near Sugar Grove, W.Va., hidden by fortress-like mountains, sits the country's largest eavesdropping bug.

- ...media coverage has made virtually no mention of the fact that the Bush administration used the NSA to spy on U.N. diplomats in New York before the invasion of Iraq.
- "The description of the NSA program is reminiscent of the COINTELPRO program in which the FBI, under J. Edgar Hoover, spied on the leaders of the civil rights movement, including the Black Panther Party. During the COINTELPRO program, the FBI attempted to neutralize the Black Panthers through the use of informants and covert activities."

- "It must not be cool anymore to have access to this data," said Rieger, who argued that Western societies are becoming democratically legitimized police states ruled by an unaccountable elite. "We have enough technical knowledge to turn this around; let's expose them in public, publish everything we know about them and let them know how it feels to be under surveillance."
- Operating under new powers to combat terrorism, law enforcement agencies are making unprecedented demands on the telecommunications industry to provide information on subscribers...
