Recently by Mac Slavo: 88 Million (That's One in Three Americans) Are Invisible to Government Employment Statistics
It’s hard to imagine an America where the fundamental laws of the land have been stripped away. Those founding principles that, for the better part of two centuries, made America the last bastion of true freedom in the world, so much so that millions of tired, poor, and huddled masses yearned to breathe free on our soil. These God-given rights, inherent to all men — the right to speak our minds no matter the unpopularity of our message, the right to carry a gun for personal protection, the right to be secure in our persons and possessions, and the right to be presumed innocenct and not robbed of life or liberty without fair trial — are and have been under assault for decades.
In his latest interview with the SGT Report, forecaster Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute warns of the multi-pronged attack on our liberty and suggests we are well on our way to living in a country not dissimilar to that of Hitler’s Third Reich. While the signs are all around us and as clear as day to those paying attention, a large portion of our population, like that of Germany in the 1930′s, simply doesn’t understand what’s happening, or they bury their heads in the sand so as to avoid ruffling the feathers of the all powerful and entrenched American Police State.
(Full interview follows excerpts)
One of our employees… She’s German… when she was about sixteen years old she said to her grandmother, “How come nobody stopped what was happening with Hitler. How come they didn’t stop them from taking the Jews away?”
And the grandmother said to her, “You don’t understand. It wasn’t one day that we woke up and all of our rights were taken away from us. They took them away from us slowly. And then one day you couldn’t speak out, because if you spoke out you were dead.”
And that’s what’s going on in this country. It’s like the frog in boiling water.
How much more do people need to have?
First it was the Patriot Act. Now it’s the National Defense Authorization Act. And then it was Obama’s Executive Order giving El Presidente Los Estados Unidos the supreme right to call Martial Law at a potential threat — a potential threat.
Then there’s Big Bro over there, Attorney General Eric Holder, who just passed these guidelines that could let them listen in to what we’re saying right now, listen to you on your cell phone, watch every stroke of your keyboard, and they at the White House could then determine whether or not the algorythms add up to you being a terrorist or a potential terrorist.
Big Brother never had it so good.
…all aboard the Auschwitz Express…
…That’s what’s going on here… and the people don’t see it, and they’re afraid to speak up… People don’t want to believe it.
Any sensible person who takes the time to review the evidence must conclude that we are no longer living in a Constitutional Republic. We are, by all accounts, living in a modern day Police State influenced by corporate agendas, the almighty dollar, and the desire for power and control.
It’s happening right before our eyes — just as it has happened so many times throughout history.
According to Celente, nothing will change until the individual changes:
The people aren’t ready yet. They’re not ready physically, emotionally, spiritually, philosophically — and that’s all it really comes down to. Because when you are at those levels you don’t take other people’s crap, and you don’t give it.
It is tragic but true for the majority of our citizenry.
Acceptance, it has been said, is necessary for change to take place.
But most people refuse to accept that America has been fundamentally changed for the worse by Presidents and Congresses past and present. They are not ready to accept that their freedoms have been slowly but surely abdicated. They ignore the fact that the police state is tracking and monitoring everything they do. They are in denial about the existence of facilities where they will be herded if a national emergency is declared and that a government control grid has been put into place to handle what they know is coming. They’re not willing to accept that they are no longer individuals, but rather, property of their government and those special interests who control it, and that their land, resources and very lives can be seized by Presidential decree.
If history is any guide it tells us that humanity never seems to change (or accept what is happening) until we are at the very precipice of disaster — and then it’s often times too late.
That disaster is closely approaching, and it will be nothing short of the end of the world as we have come to know it:
Here’s the scenario — the crash of ’29, the Great Depression, currency wars, trade wars, World War II.
The panic of ’08, the Great Recession/Depression, we have currency wars going on now, trade wars next.
There’s no saving the financial system. You saw the employment numbers that came out last week — they were twice as bad as what they had projected on Wall Street. You’re seeing what’s going on in Europe — the Spanish are again calling for more austerity measures because they can’t get out of the mess.
So, there’s no way out.
The only way out for psychopaths is war.
…Everything they touch they turn to crap. Every government.
…that’s their M.O., and it looks like we’re going into a new one.
While we want to believe that the will of the people can stop it, we hold a pessimistic view that anything will change before this man-made disaster comes to pass.
