- "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."
- 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.

- 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.
- ...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.
- Militarized Federal Police All Over The Streets With The Precedent to Kill
- Global Move Into Police State Confirms Earth As Literal Prison Planet

- ...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 ...
- Secret database obtained by NBC News tracks "suspicious" domestic groups
- 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.
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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..."
- 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.
- 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...
- Most Americans carry cellphones, but many may not know that government agencies can track their movements through the signals emanating from the handset.
- 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.

- 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.”
- 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.

- 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.
- 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.
- Scandals Confront Military Security Industry
- The FBI led the attack on AIM as part of its Counter Intelligence Program (COINTEPRO), begun in the mid-1960s under its director J. Edgar Hoover, and used with terrifying effectiveness against the Black Panther Party.

- Four years ago, President George W. Bush quietly assumed dictatorial powers with a secret executive order granting himself the right to imprison anyone on earth indefinitely, without charges or trial or indictment or evidence, simply by declaring them an "enemy combatant," on his say-so alone. This week, the assemblage of bootlickers and bagmen that befoul the U.S. Senate voted to codify the core of this global autocracy under the pretense of curtailing it.

- How long before these billboards bear the faces of 'political dissidents' and other enemies of the state?
- ...fascism’s principles are wafting in the air today, surreptitiously masquerading as something else, challenging everything we stand for. The cliché that people and nations learn from history is not only overused, but also overestimated; often we fail to learn from history, or draw the wrong conclusions. Sadly, historical amnesia is the norm.
- The OSS instructed the anthropologists and other advisors to try to conceive ways that any detectable differences could be used in the development of weapons, but they were cautioned to consider this issue "in a-moral and non-ethical terms," with an understanding that, "if any of the suggestions contained herein are considered for action, all moral and ethical implications will be carefully studied." Prefiguring the findings of Stanley Milgram's later "shocking" obedience experiments, most consulted anthropologists abandoned their moral authority and complied with the OSS' request.

- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the practice of injecting humans with tracking devices for medical purposes, according to a Florida company that makes the devices.
- What started 15 years ago as a protest to close the School of the Americas, which trained military personnel from Central and Latin America, is also becoming an anti-war movement.
- War is hell. But it’s worse when the Marines bring out their new urban combat weapon, the SMAW-NE. Which may be why they’re not talking about it, much.
- Since the FBI admits surveilling anti-war groups and urging local police to send in information on protesters, how far might the feds already be going? Is the FBI following the standard that former Attorney General John Ashcroft publicly proclaimed in December 2001 — presuming that those who invoke "phantoms of lost liberty" are giving "ammunition to America’s enemies"? Unfortunately, because of the Bush administration’s secrecy policy, Americans cannot know how far the feds have already gone to suppress dissent.
