Amerikan Stasi Police State Staring Us In The Face

NSA spies on foreign companies for the benefit of American ones, and it spies on US law firms representing clients against the US government. The New York Times recently reported that the corrupt Australian puppet state has been working with NSA to steal the private communications of US lawyers with their clients in the Indonesian government involved in a trade dispute with Washington." In other words, NSA spying helps the US government to prevail in economic lawsuits against it, but the spying is justified in the name of the nonexistent "terrorist threat." The terrorist is NSA.

And you thought Washington was only spying on "terrorists" to prevent them from "killing us over here."

It is impossible to paint a picture of a more lawless government than Washington has painted of itself.

If it is not a hoax, it took a pop singer, Lorde, to declare in her Grammy Award acceptance speech last month that the emperor has no clothes:

"Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick marketing, 'freedom' propaganda and 'economic growth' rhetoric, while they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism. As American journalist Chris Hedges has identified, a corporate totalitarian core thrives inside a fictitious democratic shell. This core yields an 'inverted' totalitarian state that few recognize because it does not look like the Orwellian world of Nineteen Eighty-four. This corporate totalitarian core is spreading outward from America. Planet Earth is being rapidly militarized by the world's major and significant states, including their police forces. Meanwhile, state surveillance is becoming universal and torture is outsourced to gulags."

The TV channels censored her speech and cut it off by substituting pre-recorded content. See also here and here.

This is a very large production for a hoax. An amazing amount of creativity and production effort went into it. Increasingly, our reality is composed of invented news, whether from the government or the Internet.

By cutting off Lorde's speech, the media moguls are shown proving the truth of her words. Americans must not hear. The dolts might wake up.

Americans should take note that in fact the media is on guard, prepared at an instance's notice to suppress free speech. Washington is ever so pleased to support protesters in Ukraine, who are witlessly helping Washington to subvert their country, but no protests at home thank you.

If the Lorde story is a hoax, it nevertheless captures the truth of the situation. And in more ways than one. As one reader put it, "the content of that non-speech may be truthful, but, you see, that is what 'they' do --  conflate truth, fiction & satire all into one ball of wax so we look like fools and no longer know what to believe."

With the Pentagon building fake cities for soldiers to demolish while practicing the unconstitutional occupation practices that are in store for us in the homeland, Alex Jones' predictions move out of the realm of conspiracy theory. Washington has finally noticed that the result of moving middle class jobs offshore is an American population without a future. As Gerald Celente says, when people have nothing left to lose, they lose it. The US military is gearing up for when Americans can't take it any more.

Meanwhile, Washington continues the pretense of America as the land of "freedom and democracy" and "concern for human rights," blah-blah-blah. People all over the world, with the exception of the paid protesters in western Ukraine, are no longer listening to the bullshit flowing from Washington and its presstitute media.

Note: This from a reader in Germany: "Last year the Green Party complained about Germany's own training field and city. It's near Magdeburg and, as of last year, they were planning to add a subway station and expect to have 500 buildings built by 2017, including high rises, poor neighborhoods and industrial districts. Its official name is Gefechtsübungszentrum, GÜZ, or Combat Training Center. It's located on 232 square kilometers of practice grounds (30 km long by 12 km wide) and cost 100,000,000 Euros! -- or $40,000,000 more than the U.S. version."
