Bush's Conspiracy to Create an American Police State: Part II, A Climate of Fear is Maintained

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Fascist dictatorships assume and keep power by maintaining or encouraging a climate of fear, an atmosphere of near panic but short of closing down the government entirely, just short of bringing the engines of industry to a grinding halt. Thus, every budding fascist, totalitarian state walks a tight rope stretched between Democracy left behind and the absolute, Hegelian state ahead. On either side of the rope are the consequences that accrue to failed coups d'etat! It is the people's responsibility to ensure that 'state absolutists' like Bush fail and fail utterly! The 'absolute state' which assumes supremacy over people, over the sovereignty of one's person, is an artificial and illogical construct subscribed to by the likes of Bush, the Skull and Bones, and Adolf Hitler.

Never innovative, the Bush administration follows the old Nazi play book. Because Americans were in a state of shock and fear already, it was easy for Bush to maintain the climate of fear essential to effect a dictatorship. In the wake of 911, Bush exploited a climate of fear, appointing Tom Ridge to preside over the administration's new propaganda arm: a Department of Homeland Security, 'homeland' being Herr Bush's unimaginative re-write for 'fatherland'.
"If we simply go to red ... it basically shuts down the country," (Tom Ridge) [meaning that civilian government bodies would be closed down and taken over by an Emergency Administration.]

"What a lot of Americans suspected all along turns out to be true. The color-coded alert system for terrorist attacks was a fraud." (www.North.Jersey.com
The Bush use of 'color codes' was obvious and heavy-handed. The 'alerts' become increasingly counter-productive, as Americans eventually recovered. A history of the use of color codes to maintain an atmosphere of panic can be found at: Fabricating Intelligence for Political Gain.

The Department of Homeland Security was a Frankenstein from its horrific beginnings. Like the famous monster, it was cobbled of bits and pieces, a hodgepodge of unmanageable scope owing in part to its dubious and unspoken mission: maintain the state of fear and panic upon which Bush's incipient dictatorship absolutely depends.
The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), commonly known in the United States as "Homeland Security", is a Cabinet department of the federal government of the United States with the responsibility of protecting the territory of the United States from terrorist attacks and responding to natural disasters.

Whereas the Department of Defense is charged with military actions abroad, the Department of Homeland Security works in the civilian sphere to protect the United States within, at, and outside its borders. Its goal is to prepare for, prevent, and respond to domestic emergencies, particularly terrorism. On March 1, 2003, the DHS absorbed the now defunct United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, and assumed its duties. In doing so, it divided the enforcement and services functions into two separate and new agencies -- US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and US Citizenship and Immigration Services.

With over 200,000 employees, DHS is the third largest cabinet department in the US federal government, after the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs. Homeland security policy is coordinated at the White House by the Homeland Security Council. Other agencies with significant homeland security responsibilities include the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Energy.

--Department of Homeland Security, Wikipedia

From the 'monster' department's own website is found the following mission statement:
A six-point agenda for the Department of Homeland Security was developed and announced in July 2005, by Secretary Chertoff to ensure that the Department's policies, operations, and structures are aligned in the best way to address the potential threats – both present and future – that face our nation. The six-point agenda is structured to guide the department in the near term and result in changes that will:

  1. Increase overall preparedness, particularly for catastrophic events
  2. Create better transportation security systems to move people and cargo more securely and efficiently
  3. Strengthen border security and interior enforcement and reform immigration processes;
  4. Enhance information sharing with our partners
  5. Improve DHS financial management, human resource development, procurement and information technology
  6. Realign the DHS organization to maximize mission performance.
The higher the Threat Condition, the greater the risk of a terrorist attack. Risk includes both the probability of an attack occurring and its potential gravity. Threat Conditions shall be assigned by the Attorney General in consultation with the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security. Except in exigent circumstances, the Attorney General shall seek the views of the appropriate Homeland Security Principals or their subordinates, and other parties as appropriate, on the Threat Condition to be assigned. Threat Conditions may be assigned for the entire Nation, or they may be set for a particular geographic area or industrial sector. Assigned Threat Conditions shall be reviewed at regular intervals to determine whether adjustments are warranted.

--Department of Homeland Security

The system of color codes was always absurd, even assuming 911 had not been an inside job. No hard evidence was ever put forward at any time in support of 'alleged threats'. Nor was a method put into place to measure or monitor the effectiveness of such a system, immeasurable in any case. It was and remains a boondoggle, a complete waste of tax payer money, premised upon an attack --911 --about which it is increasingly apparent that it was an inside job. The DHS, itself, is therefore a taxpayer funded propaganda apparatus with which an illegitimate Bush administration maintains the desired level of fear and terror. Is this how you wish your tax dollars wasted?

DHS is not, itself, a terrorist organization. That designation is better applied to the Bush administration and the CIA, a fascist organization responsible for deaths of some 12 to 20 million people world wide since its creation. [See: CIA Holocaust Claims Twenty Million Victims]

The color codes, in fact, get ahead of the story. The color codes, it was hoped, would train us like Pavlov's dogs to fear and quake at the mere TV image of 'Code Red'. We were expected to associate a color --red --with the lies Bush had hoped we would believe: 1) Saddam had WMD, possibly a nuke 2) Muslim terrorists were planning another attack; 3) that they just hated freedom! Past that point, the lies spun out of control. Condo Rice raised the specter of a mushroom cloud. Saddam, we were led to believe, was conspiring with Bin Laden to wage war on Americans. It was and remains bullshit! Saddam never had WMD and Bin Laden, said by Benazir Bhutto to have been murdered years ago, was, in fact, a Bush family friend and business partner. It is no coincidence that terrorism is always worse under GOP regimes.

How convenient for Bush to be able to summon up the specter of 911 with but one word, one color: red! Bush's job seemed easy. After all, it was believed, Americans are conditioned from birth to give greater weight to right wing theories of all sorts.

It's not only the phantom, external threats Bush summons up to terrorize us. It is the administration, itself, arrogating unto itself unprecedented and unjustified powers to intrude into your private lives, spy on you, and crush your opinions should you disagree with its lies.
Imagine a world of streets lined with video cameras that alert authorities to any suspicious activity. A world where police officers can read the minds of potential criminals and arrest them before they commit any crimes. A world in which a suspect who lies under questioning gets nabbed immediately because his brain has given him away.

---The Government Is Trying to Wrap Its Mind Around Yours, Nita Farahany, Washington Post

One is right to be afraid. The real terrorists have taken over the White House which now threatens not only the world but the American people themselves. A nightmare has come true: psychopaths now control the world's largest nuclear arsenal, the largest military apparatus that the world has ever seen. Be afraid. Be very afraid!

Game On:

"Attytood's Will Bunch has a new interview with Barack Obama:

Tonight I had an opportunity to ask Barack Obama a question that is on the minds of many Americans, yet rarely rises to the surface in the great ruckus of the 2008 presidential race -- and that is whether an Obama administration would seek to prosecute officials of a former Bush administration on the revelations that they greenlighted torture, or for other potential crimes that took place in the White House.

Obama said that as president he would indeed ask his new Attorney General and his deputies to "immediately review the information that's already there" and determine if an inquiry is warranted -- but he also tread carefully on the issue, in line with his reputation for seeking to bridge the partisan divide. He worried that such a probe could be spun as "a partisan witch hunt." However, he said that equation changes if there was willful criminality, because "nobody is above the law."
The Kid sure has got stones. He's either gonna take the people with him on this, or he's signed his own death warrant. Maybe both.

Cometh the hour, cometh The Man. If We The People were ever lookin' for a leader, then here he is!!

Anyone in his position who talks the talk like that is capable of leading the Revolution we have to have. This is a once in a lifetime chance to get some Justice without major bloodshed, and maybe save the planet.

There must be a lot of BushCo operatives and PNAC people who are shitting bricks right now "for other potential crimes that took place in the White House."
If 9/11 was an inside job, then form suggests that they'll take out a lot of innocents as long as they snuff him. Obi's people and his Secret Service deatil are hopefully too smart to let him loose anywhere marksmen could sqeeze off a kill-shot. The "evil doers" will have to use a bomb or perhaps shoot down his plane down with a shoulder-to-air stinger "terrorist" missile.

Anyone with more than a dozen neurones connected above brain-stem level must realise that his life is in mortal danger.

The horse has bolted. They can't stop him with the MSM or dodgy computer vote machines now because his support is too huge to “fix” if he makes it to the first Tuesday in November.

The first campaign that snatched my passionate interest in was Nixon v JFK in 1960. Been a junky for it every four years ever since. I swear to you comrades, I have never witnessed the likes of the History that is unfolding before us from here to November and beyond.

On May 9, 2007 president Bush signed a National Security Presidnetial Declaration which permits him to declare a national emergency in the case of war and suspend Congress and the Supreme Court. Norman Podhoretz demands bombing of Iran, Admiral Fallon was fired and Buchanan predicts the bombing of iran before elections. Nobody talks about NSPD51 but the probability is high that there will be an October Surprise, the elections will be cancelled and Bush and Cheney will stay on. Having lived under Stalin and Hitler I can smell a police state in the making. Hope you will pay attention.

Thanks for your post. I am aware of his National Security Presidnetial Declaration. Indeed, upon any pretext (war on Iran would do it) he will simply cancel the elections and rule by decree. Hey --the Police State is HERE AND NOW!

This post simply begs for Olbermann's excellent Nexus of Politics and Terror. In this piece which he has updated a couple of times, Olbermann shows how terror alerts are generated as distractions when embarrassing news items threaten the Bush administration's credibility.

Sorry, I forgot how poorly blogger's comments deal with long links.

SBT, you're right about Keith Olbermann's excellent summary of fabricated terror alerts. The text version is here.

I'm glad that there are still americans that are thinking straight.
I have some idea's of my own and like to share them with you
first, i think the most dangerous american asset is the blind patriotism of many of its occupants
It gives the government a free-ticket to do as it pleases
european psychatrists use a watch
on a chain to bring you a sleep, but their american college's seem to use the american anthem and the stars and stripes,
A soon as the government has done a "dirty deed" they use an appeal
on patriotistic sentiments to keep people from asking to many difficult questions "we're one big happy famely and we have to stand together now, as one man behind our president who is not with us, is against us, so don't step out of line".
For instance what 911 is concerned
they keep people from questions like how did we get people so pissed off that they flew a plane against our biggest symbols of might.
If you would raise an issue like this as a newspaper-owner you could be considered as beeing non patriotic and loose your subsc ribers.
If eg your neigbour sets your house on fire, there are two questions you might ask yourself
Will he be caught, and just as important what did i do to annoy
him that much that he would take an action like this against me
The second question seems to be "not done" because you might be considered as a non patriot
The real quilty party, considering the 911 events is the american government, and to be more specific their foreign policies
You don't get terrorism for free you got to do something to "ëarn" it
If America wants to shield itself from more 911 events they shall have to seriously address the why question.

as a footnote

America profiles itself as bringing peace and happiness everywhere and especially democraty
but in reality there is no government that supports, and has supported so many "wrong governments as the USA (take Chili's Pinochet eg, and the baptista government in Cuba)
what gets them things like 911
is their tendency to support governments that are to their benifit, and they don't care a damn
about what they do to their people.

A national flag is something you put on a pole in your gardin, it was not intended to be used to wave in front of someone's face to block his "view"
That's all for now folks
