Are You An Enemy Of The State?

June 17, 2013 by  

Are You An Enemy Of The State?

The massive and hyper-Orwellian nature of the surveillance state as revealed by Edward Snowden and The Guardian seems to have caught the majority of Americans by surprise.

Even some of the criminal class in Washington, D.C., responsible for writing the laws that established the surveillance state, claimed surprise and feigned outrage, though many of them endorsed it and went on the attack against Snowden and Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the story. The reaction of the psychopaths who inhabit the D.C. cesspool under the mantel of “public servant” is indicative that they covet power above all else and to them the U.S. Constitution — which they swore an oath to defend — is a meaningless and antiquated document.

Representative Peter King (Fascist-N.Y.) said he believes journalists involved in reporting stories about the surveillance programs should be investigated.

Weeper of the House John Boehner called Snowden a traitor because what he did was “a giant violation of the law;” Senator Diane Feinstein (Communist-Calif.) also invoked the “T” word. Senator Barbara Mikulski (Socialist-Md.) wondered how someone who didn’t finish community college could be “exposed to some of our most significant secrets.” That the politically opposed criminal class would side with one another on blatant violations of the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments and against the American people is evidence that government is an enemy of the people.

What Snowden revealed is not new and certainly not surprising. In fact, reading about it reminded me of something I wrote in October 2001 for publication in my printed newsletter, The Bob Livingston Letter™ (subscription required) in November 2001:

It Was War On Drugs.

Now It’s War On Terrorism.

Both were created by the U.S. establishment and both never intended to be won.

Both were designed as esoteric war on the American people under a mask of “patriotic” war fever.

Is there a hidden power, a shadow government behind the Pentagon and Trade Center Towers attack — a force using an Arab terrorist mantra?

The vast modern military operation to ferret out and bring to justice “Arab terrorist” Osama bin Laden and company is a comical production sold as real by the controlled media and bureaucrats of the establishment. The “success” of the charade will be the beginning of widespread terrorism and fear hysteria on the American people…

The terrorist scare is providing the excuse, as expected, for new police powers against the American people. There will be a massive surrender of what we have left of liberty. This drama against us is quickly unfolding. All phases of our public and private lives are at stake. Manufactured crises always provide the cover for seizure of human rights. Phony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by “our own government.”

Osama Bin Laden, U.S. ally and a CIA contract agent in Afghanistan, is now branded a super villain worthy of a comic opera.

The art of war is that all warfare is based on deception and that rulers must cultivate the appearance of moral rightness in order to rally the people and persuade them to fight. It works!

In the blink of an eye the people have stopped blaming the government for the worsening economy and shifted the blame to the “terrorists.”

The government of the United States has reasserted its power over the American people. It is now stronger, much stronger, because of the “terrorist” attack. Any student of history would know ahead of time that government power is strengthened by horrendous attacks such as we have seen on our own people.

Who really benefited from the attacks? The answer is the U.S. government is now ready to wage a simulated war on the Arabs and real war on the American people.

History is full of governments which perpetrated monumental frauds upon their own people to trigger a war. Governments have to create the illusion that they were attacked first. Sacrificing the World Trade Towers, a billion dollars, and seven to eight thousand lives is nothing to the great chess game of power politics and oil under Arab lands.

The U.S. intelligence apparatus has been mining data and compiling a list of “subversives” since at least the 1980s. The list is kept in a database called Main Core.

Christpher Ketchum of Radar Magazine reported in 2008 about the existence of the Main Core data mining operation while covering a rift in the George W. Bush White House that led to the resignation of James Comey, John Ashcroft’s second in command at the Department of Justice in 2005. Comey resigned after Bush overruled him and re-certified a program that involved massive computer data mining of Americans and their compilation into a list of possible subversives. Ketcham writes that former government employees and intelligence sources with independent knowledge of domestic surveillance operations, “say the program that caused the flap between Comey and the White House was related to a database of Americans who might be considered potential threats in the event of a national emergency. Sources familiar with the program say that the government’s data gathering has been overzealous and probably conducted in violation of federal law and the protection from unreasonable search and seizure guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment.

“According to a senior government official who served with high-level security clearances in five administrations, ‘There exists a database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic, might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived ‘enemies of the state’ almost instantaneously.’ He and other sources tell Radar that the database is sometimes referred to by the code name Main Core. One knowledgeable source claims that 8 million Americans are now listed in Main Core as potentially suspect. In the event of a national emergency, these people could be subject to everything from heightened surveillance and tracking to direct questioning and possibly even detention.”

If the Main Core database contained 8 million American “enemies of the state” in 2005, how many more are now listed considering the greater technological abilities and increased budget and emphasis on mining data? The NSA now collects 2.1 million gigabytes of data per hour and is currently building a $2 billion facility in Utah to store it all.

So who is an enemy of the state and likely to find himself in the Main Core database? The criminal political class has made it quite clear it is not al-Qaida, which it has funded and armed in Egypt, Libya and Syria. It is not Islamic extremists, who have been given blanket immunity from government spying.

It is not the criminal elected class and government functionaries. It is not the parasitic “taker” class too distracted by bread and circus, Hollywood antics, amoral lifestyles, reality TV, and sporting events and too easily swayed by slick oratory, fancy suits and promises of government largess to recognize totalitarianism in the regime of the undocumented usurper and his Congressional enablers.

It is Americans who believe in the rule of the law, the Constitution and freedom.

And since this information is neither new, nor surprising to anyone paying attention, one has to ask what is the purpose of its newfound celebrity and the vilification of Snowden and attacks on the 1st Amendment and Greenwald, who works for a mainstream publication and whose “findings” would not have been revealed were it not in the interests of those who control the message?

It is no doubt part of a new campaign — as was the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups — designed to suppress and intimidate anyone who dares oppose the growing tyranny. It is aimed especially at any journalist or blogger or potential whistle-blower as a reminder that the Constitution is not a protection against the psychopathic criminal class in Washington or their globalist masters.

    Excellent article thank you

  • Tommy cunningham

    The mere fact that citizen simply exists is probable cause now! Upon the day we are born, probable cause now exists!?! The 4th states “NO warrant SHALL issue But UPON probable cause” we the people have no right to privacy now as our birth is probable cause if one looks at the actions of the state! Sounds to me like the KGB of old or the Gestapo! All citizens are policed and if one breaks silence and tells the people of there actions like Snowden then they are considered a traitor and enemy of the state guilty of treason? I have always assumed treason was a crime in which someone would undermine the Constitution and our Constitutionally limited Republic, trying to topple it and replace it with another form of goverment which our citizen representatives in goverment are now doing! Sounds to me as if our elected officials are the ones guilty of treason by undermining the very foundation of the Constitution protecting and preserving our most sacred natural born rights in the Bill of rights! They try and undermine the 1rst and yell treason when one tells the people of the goverments tryranny, they fail to follow the 4th by seizing communications without any probable cause , saying that a citizen merely existing is probable cause, the can now imprison ANYONE THE FEEL LIKE and suspend the 5th and 6th. They clearly try and infringe on the 2nd time after time so the people cannot defend against the tyranny! We now live in a police state like old mother Russia or Nazi germany. Wake up America, we are just one genertion away from liberty being extinguished, maybe this is the generation it happens, some stewards of liberty we are, won’t be nothing left to pass on to our posterity! Reminds me of the last paragraph of a famous speech….. Is peace so sweet and life so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God! For I know not what course others may take, but as for myself, Give me liberty or give me death….. Wake up America, are we gonna be the summertime patriot?

    • TOB

      Thumbs up to you Tommy

    • Don miller

      Right on brother count me in on that march you certainly said a big mouthful and it’s all truth circle the wagons and send the call out I certainly think they couldn’t ignore a 100 million and it would be great to do it while they were in session and they wouldn’t be able to run off either excellant idea mr. Cunningham send a way we can contact each other and hopefully contact more
      Like minded Americans cause time is of the essence

  • Dave

    Well put Tommy.

  • R J Weiman

    So we recognize the problem.
    I am in agreement with most of what was
    Posted ( the “takers” Seem to be your pet peeve) (I’m not one) .
    So what are we going to do?
    Seriously are we just gunna sit on our butts
    And continue to complain? OR?

    • Tommy cunningham

      It would be a step in the right direction if we could form a national militia which is necessary to the security of a free state of 100 million and march on Washington peacefully and demand the Constitution and our liberties be restored, could you imagin 100 million walking to the capital steps and demanding it while congress was in session? They would most definitely hear us then, we should Demand not ask that they take their oath of office to obey and protect the Constitution, I’ll volunteer, just need 99, 999, 999 more willing to volunteer! That’s only 1/3 of the population, only 1/3 participated in the founding of our great republic. When the people fear the goverment it must be tyranny ,” when the goverment fear the people it must be liberty”…. Thomas Jefferson

      • Tommy cunningham

        We should get 535 copies made of the declaration of indepence and mail them to all congressmen, senators, and Supreme Court judges along with a copy of the constitution to arrive a day before the march.

      • TOB

        Tommy you can count on me. My Facebook “friends” think I am a fanatic on abuse of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, religious freedom, personal freedom, and the abuse of government and its agencies. I show no respect for the policies and agenda of the oBama administration and am called racist for speaking out. I’m doing all I can to awaken the sheep

      • jp

        Count me n on that march .. I also think copying an sending the constitution the day before is a great idea!

  • Charles Shirk

    If anyone remenbers history’s former lession, the Revolutionary War was fought against those who WERE our fellow countrymen, who also subjected THEIR fellow countrymen to tyranny. No such similar effort need be undertaken, if our fellow citizens would get involved and get off their *sses! Our current dangers would not exist, if those who blow so much “patriotic-fervor” would not have secumbed to the ‘freedom’ to do nothing!

  • Frans Aja

    Psychopaths are the rulers of the world. Theirs behavior against Edward confirm that. A common line among those beings is the lack of human compromise and flexibility, theirs highest interest is power above anything and anyone. Only the right human software can save the world. But first we need to take away our children from the school system before is to late.
