American sheeple stick heads in the sand, pretend to be ostriches

Note: The Lorde story is likely a hoax, but it nevertheless captures the truth of the situation.

American taxpayers have built an entire city in Virginia so that the Pentagon can practice occupying American cities and putting down protests by US citizens. This fake city is the training ground for the doctrine outlined in a leaked US Army document that describes how soldiers are to be trained to put down domestic disturbances and process prisoners through detainment camps where prisoners will be re-educated to appreciate US policies. In situations of "extreme necessity" the training embraces deadly force: "Warning shot will not be fired. When a firearm is discharged it will be fired with the intent of rendering the person(s) at whom it is discharged incapable of continuing that activity or course of behavior." Lecturers in the training courses describe constitutionalists as "domestic extremists."

Does this make the President of the United States, whose oath of office is to defend the US Constitution against enemies domestic and foreign, a domestic extremist? Is the fear of arrest by Homeland Security as a domestic extremist the reason Obama refuses to defend the Constitution of the United States?

The Army is being trained for domestic police duties that are in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act that prevents the use of the military for domestic law enforcement, another indication that Washington has no respect for the country's laws and that Obama and his "Justice" Department have no intention of enforcing the laws of the land or abiding by the Constitution.

Where is the media outcry? Where are the law schools? Where is Congress? A government that disregards the laws of the land is both treasonous and tyrannical. Yet, not a peep from "the free and the brave."

The US government and its puppet auxiliary, the UK government, have turned with vengeance against whistleblowers and their attorneys. Bradley Manning is in prison, Julian Assange is confined to the Ecuadoran Embassy in London, and Edward Snowden is under Russian protection from a tyrannical US government. Jessellyn Radack, an attorney who represented Snowden was recently detained and questioned in an intimidating way at London's Heathrow Airport. Washington has taught its British puppet state how to mimic Washington's Gestapo ways.

The latest revelations of the criminal activities of the Amerikan National Stasi Agency comes from a leaked NSA document that shows that the Stasi agency considers WikiLeaks Julian Assange to be a "malicious foreign actor" and launched "an international effort to focus the legal element of national power upon non-state actor Assange, and the human network that supports WikiLeaks." Clearly, the Gestapo is upon us.

RT reports:

"The NSA was not alone in its sweeping espionage on the whistle-blowing organization. It also enlisted its partners in the Five Eyes spying network (UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada) as well as other nations. In documents dating back from August 2010, the US urged 10 other countries with forces in Afghanistan to consider pressing criminal charges against Julian Assange -- 'founder of the rogue WikiLeaks internet website and responsible for the unauthorized publication of over 70,000 classified documents covering the war in Afghanistan.'"

In other words, freedom of the press? We don't need no stinking freedom of the press. We have the presstitute press -- the TV networks, the New York Times, Washington Post, National Public Radio, and all the rest of the officially sanctioned state Ministry of Propaganda.

Julian Assange stated, correctly, "The NSA and its UK accomplices show no respect for the rule of law."

WikiLeaks' attorney, Judge Baltasar Garzon, the pursuer of Pinochet, had this to say:

"The paradox is that Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks organization are being treated as a threat instead of what they are: a journalist and a media organization that are exercising their fundamental right to receive and impart information in its original form, free from omission and censorship, free from partisan interests, free from economic or political pressure."

What has happened that explains the transformation of the UK and all of its former English colonies -- the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand -- into Gestapo Stasi states? These are the countries best known historically for their domestic civil liberties and rule of law, irrespective of their treatment of their indigenous populations and in the case of England her non-white colonies. The original dispossession was of indigenous peoples. Now these governments have turned on their own. Today the governments of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (the Five Eyes) see civil liberty and the accountability of government to law as threats to themselves, and the governments are determined to stamp out the threats. The historical lands of liberty have abandoned liberty and become Stasi states.

What has occurred in the US and UK is that the criminal and treasonous acts of both governments have become so extreme that the governments must destroy civil liberty in order to protect themselves from exposure. Whenever you hear "national security" invoked, you know that government is covering up its crimes and its lies.

The criminal character of both US and UK governments is now recognized by the rest of the world, even by the bought-and-paid-for NATO puppet states, France and Germany. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande are discussing the creation of an European communication network in order to protect Europeans' communications from the NSA and from Google, Facebook, and other US communication companies that shamelessly cooperate with NSA's spy network as junior members of the Stasi. Brazil and South America are facing the same challenge of protecting their communications from Washington's National Stasi Agency.
