The following article is from Free Inquiry magazine, Volume 23, Number 2.
Free Inquiry readers may pause to read the “Affirmations of Humanism: A Statement of Principles” on the inside cover of the magazine. To a secular humanist, these principles seem so logical, so right, so crucial. Yet, there is one archetypal political philosophy that is anathema to almost all of these principles. It is fascism. And fascism’s principles are wafting in the air today, surreptitiously masquerading as something else, challenging everything we stand for.
We are two-and-a-half generations removed from the horrors of Nazi Germany, although constant reminders jog the consciousness. German and Italian fascism form the historical models that define this twisted political worldview. Although they no longer exist, this worldview and the characteristics of these models have been imitated by protofascist regimes at various times in the twentieth century. Both the original German and Italian models and the later protofascist regimes show remarkably similar characteristics.
Analysis of these regimes reveals fourteen common threads that link them in recognizable patterns of national behavior and abuse of power
Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism.: From the prominent displays of flags and bunting to the ubiquitous lapel pins, the fervor to show patriotic nationalism, both on the part of the regime itself and of citizens caught up in its frenzy, was always obvious.
*Love it or leave it buddy, You’re either with us or your with the Terrorists*
Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause: The most significant common thread among these regimes was the use of scapegoating as a means to divert the people’s attention from other problems, to shift blame for failures, and to channel frustration in controlled directions. The methods of choice—relentless propaganda and disinformation—were usually effective.
*Terrorists want to take away your freedom, Especially those really scary Muslim Terrorists*
The supremacy of the military/avid militarism: Ruling elites always identified closely with the military and the industrial infrastructure that supported it. A disproportionate share of national resources was allocated to the military, even when domestic needs were acute. The military was seen as an expression of nationalism, and was used whenever possible to assert national goals, intimidate other nations, and increase the power and prestige of the ruling elite.
*America’s GDP is the National Defense Budget, We export WAR. Support our troops, put a sticker on your car, how dare you think they could massacre innocent people, Our military wouldn’t go to war to turn a profit for the department of defense(and it’s related corporate interests)*
Does any of this ring alarm bells? Of course not. After all, this is America, officially a democracy with the rule of law, a constitution, a free press, honest elections, and a well-informed public constantly being put on guard against evils. Historical comparisons like these are just exercises in verbal gymnastics. Maybe, maybe not.

Police drones circling overhead, ready to help search for lost children, rescue stranded boaters and capture criminals.
Or drones equipped with lethal weapons, high-tech cameras able to see through clothing, and technology that monitors a person’s visit to religious or political events.
Those were divergent and tricky scenarios discussed at a congressional hearing on Thursday, as lawmakers contemplated a market that experts believe could grow to 10,000 unmanned aircraft in five years.
Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to develop plans to integrate them into the national airspace system used by jetliners, private and military planes, helicopters and blimps by 2015.
The low cost of drones will “erode that natural limit,” allowing governments to conduct regular surveillance on people, said Chris Calabrese, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.
“As the number of drones rises, so, too, will the number of suspects,” said Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat. “During the civil rights movement, would activists have left their homes if they knew” they were being monitored from cameras 30,000 feet above?” he asked.
“If we take a Laissez-faire attitude towards this, we will see an erosion of our liberties,” Johnson said.

One more step towards a global Fascist surveillance society,Now the UN is trying to get in on stealing freedoms because of “Terrorism”
The United Nations is calling for more surveillance of Internet users, saying it would help to investigate and prosecute terrorists.
A 148-page report released today titled “The Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes” warns that terrorists are using social networks and other sharing sites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Dropbox, to spread “propaganda.” (And the Corporate/Fascist Surveillance state in Amerika isn’t?)
Potential terrorists use advanced communications technology often involving the Internet to reach a worldwide audience with relative anonymity and at a low cost,” said Yury Fedotov, executive director of the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
The report, released at a conference in Vienna convened by UNODC, concludes that “one of the major problems confronting all law enforcement agencies is the lack of an internationally agreed framework for retention of data held by ISPs.” Europe, but not the U.S. or most other nations, has enacted a mandatory data-retention law.
The report, indicates it would be desirable for certain Web sites — such as instant-messaging services and VoIP providers like Skype — to keep records of “communication over the Internet such as chat room postings.” That goes beyond what the proposed U.S. legislation, which targets only broadband and wireless providers, would cover.

Sounds like a TR3B sighting to me, which like I said consists of technology that is at least a decade ahead of the current technology. and most likely back engineered from ET technology at the Skunkworks facility
A Lakewood, CO, nurse is considering that the black, triangle-shaped object with seven red lights that moved overhead under the cloud cover looking like a creature from the movie “Predator” might have been one of ours, according to October 19, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside on break at a nursing home about 7:30 p.m. on October 13, 2012, when the object was first noticed. The witness described the object.
“Flat black,” the witness stated. “Maybe seven small, red lights in random pattern on bottom surface. Its wing span was two to three times the wing span of the airliners coming over at the same altitude.”
The witness compared the object to a Hollywood film.
“The effect was like the movie ‘Predator’ when the creature came out of the water and its cloaking wasn’t working properly. Not the electrical effect on the surface but just the mottled effect of a malfunctioning pattern matching effect. Was not Stealth Bomber! Full Triangle.”The object made no sound.
“Its motion was smooth, silent and linear. Sighting lasted for maybe less than one minute. I just happened to be looking in the right place at the time.”

Electromagnetic Pulse and Microwave weapons are not a brand new invention, The military has been working on this for the better half of the decade(officialy). As stated before the military is working with technologies years in advance of the current standard. So is it not possible that EMP and Microwave weapons have already been put to use. A prime example is the blackouts and electrical disruption prior to the crash of Flight 93 on 9/11
This is CHAMP: Boeing’s new missile otherwise known as the Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project. It automatically disables PCs and other electronic devices as it soars through the skies, using a burst of powerful radio waves—and it was successfully tested last week.
The CHAMP tests took place in the Western Utah Desert on October 16th. As it flew by a two-story building, its on-board microwave system shut down every piece of electronic equipment running inside the place. In fact, the test went so well that it disabled all the cameras recording the event, too. Oops.
CHAMP program manager Keith Coleman seems positive about the tests:
“This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare. In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive…. [W]e made science fiction science fact.

this story is well over 30 years old, but relevent in showing that a secret national security state exists and is able and willing to disppose of political dissidents and witnesses to crimes of the state.
In 1975 this formerly secret CIA weapon was declassified. The information about this weapon comes from U.S. Senate testimony in 1975 relating to rogue activities of the CIA. This video shows actual Congressional testimony explaining how the Heart Attack Gun works. The Heart Attack Gun shoots a small poison dart that is made of ice. The poison causes a heart attack. Then the dart melts and the poison denatures so there is nothing that shows up in autopsy.

Nothing new under the sun, in the fake “war on terrorism”. Now I know why DHS has never stopped a terrorist plot, because the FBI is staging them all and taking all the credit
NEW YORK CITY, NY — The FBI has saved us from another terror attack which they themselves planned, funded, and set up. The Feds have repeatedly set up these false-flag attacks to keep the public scared of terrorists and to justify their o…wn existence. After hearing about enough of these scary stories, getting groped by federal agents doesn’t seem so bad anymore.
Interesting that the FBI chose the Federal Reserve, of all targets. This way they can achieve victim status and those who oppose it can be lumped in with the fake terrorist.
