In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.

“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”

Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.

Uprisings in Greece is, indeed, a problem, but an uprising of armed Americans becomes a matter of serious national security, a point addressed in a recent report by the Pentagon and highlighted as a vulnerability and threat to the U.S. during war-game exercises at the Department of Defense last year, according to one of the DoD’s war-game participants, Jim Rickards, author of Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis.

Through his sources, Hagmann confirmed Rickards’ ongoing thesis of a fear of a U.S. dollar collapse at the hands of the Chinese (U.S. treasury bond holders of approximately $1 trillion) and, possibly, the Russians (threatening to launch a gold-backed ruble as an attractive alternative to the U.S. dollar) in retaliation for aggressive U.S. foreign policy initiatives against China’s and Russia’s strategic allies Iran and Syria.

“The one source that we have I’ve known since 1979,” Hagmann continued. “He started out as a patrol officer and currently he is now working for a federal agency under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security; he’s in a position to know what policies are being initiated, what policies are being planned at this point, and he’s telling us right now—look, what you’re seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. We are preparing, we, meaning the government, we are preparing for a massive civil war in this country.”

“There’s no hyperbole here,” he added, echoing Trends Research Institute’s Founder Gerald Celente’s forecast of last year. Celente expects a collapse of the U.S. dollar and riots in America some time this year.

Since Celente’s ‘Civil War’ prediction of last year, executive orders NDAA and National Defense Resources Preparedness were signed into law by President Obama, which are both politically damaging actions taken by a sitting president.

And most recently, requests made by the DHS for the procurement of 450 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition only fuels speculation of an upcoming tragic event expected on American soil.

These major events, as shocking to the American people as they are, have taken place during an election year.

Escalating preparatory activities by the executive branch and DHS throughout the last decade—from the Patriot Act, to countless executive orders drafted to suspend (or strip) American civil liberties “are just the beginning” of the nightmare to come, Hagmann said.

He added, “It’s going to get so much worse toward the election, and I’m not even sure we’re going to have an election in this country. It’s going to be that bad, and this, as well, is coming from my sources. But one source in particular said, ‘look, you don’t understand how bad it is.’ This stuff is real; these people, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), they are ready to fight the American people.”

TruNews Wiles asked Hagmann: who does the DHS expect to fight, in particular? Another North versus South, the Yankees against the Confederates? Hagmann stated the situation is far worse than a struggle between any two factions within the U.S.; it’s an anticipated nationwide emergency event centered on the nation’s currency.

“What they [DHS] are expecting, and again, this is according to my sources, what they’re expecting is the un-sustainability of the American dollar,” Hagmann said. “And we know for a fact that we can no longer service our debt. There’s going to be a period of hyperinflation . . . the dollar will be worthless . . . The economic collapse will be so severe, people won’t be ready for this.”

The top news story of 2011 is not the assassination of Osama Bin Laden (a CIA psyop), but the advancement of the Martial Law agenda in America under the public radar.


On Wednesday, December 21, Infowars.com published a brand new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) document dated November 18, 2011, that “that show military involvement in a FEMA-led takeover within the United States under partially-classified Continuity of Government (COG) plans,” and designate “the American people as ‘enemies’ under a live military tracking system known as Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA).”

The FEMA document, appearing under the headline “National Continuity Programs (NCP) Program and Mission Support Services (PAMSS),” ask contractors to assist FEMA in national emergencies. But don’t let the bureaucratic language fool you. This is really a Martial Law document. FEMA is not interested in emergency preparedness, but in establishing a military dictatorship in the United States.

Ordinary Americans are classified as the enemy in this FEMA document, and similar Martial Law documents, such as this one from Halliburton/KBR that Infowars.com published on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. The militaristic language that appears in these Martial Law documents, and in the draconian NDAA bill that the treacherous Congress passed last week, suggests that the hijacked U.S. government desires that there be insurgents and domestic terrorists in the United States.

The traitors in Washington need enemies, both foreign and domestic, in order for the politically and morally bankrupt National Security State to remain relevant and powerful in American society. This is a militarist and secret system that is led by the most evil personalities in the 21st century who create fake enemies (Al-Qaeda) and stage false flag terrorist attacks (9/11) just to remain in power. The word restraint does not exist in their vocabulary.

The day will come when the traitors in Washington, led by President Obama, will issue orders to the military and police to fire on Americans and enforce Martial Law. At that point, even the most blind and ignorant people will probably come to the obvious conclusion that it is not Al-Qaeda who desires the destruction of America, but the hijacked and treasonous U.S. government.

Much like in Iraq and other occupied countries, the hijacked U.S. government is reaching out to private contractors like KBR to help the U.S. military and Homeland Security implement Martial Law.

Government thugs and private contractors will be used to control the population in critical areas of the country after the coming economic collapse, as well as to contain and eliminate domestic threats, meaning any American citizen who does not want a hijacked military and blood-soaked mercenaries occupying America.

The idea that America will come under military occupation sounds foreign, but it shouldn’t, because the dark road that was taken by the murderous thieves in Washington after 9/11 would eventually lead to such a crisis.

What is written down in FEMA papers and similar Martial Law documents must be put into a larger political and historical context. America’s political system did not suddenly transform into a tyrannical beast overnight.

The rise of the shadow state, and its evil twin brother, the police state, has been decades in the making. The culture of the police has been so dramatically altered during this time that for many brainwashed police officers the implementation of Martial Law is a natural and necessary response to emergencies and crises.

After three decades of a traumatic war on drugs, military rhetoric comes naturally to hardened police officers, who don’t see themselves as protectors of the law and the public but as warriors of the state fighting terrorists, criminals, protesters, and drug dealers.

All of these threats, by the way, are invented and exaggerated. If the war on drugs and the war on terror are ended, the warriors of the state will be forced to redefine their identity and occupation because without endless wars to be fought and without enemies to be killed then there is no use for a warrior class.

And society doesn’t really need a warrior class. Our common interests and our democratic values are not threatened by “terrorists,” but by an international oligarchy. Police officers and military men need to grasp this reality. And they also need to realize that by blindly accepting a state of war, and viewing the American population as the enemy, they – the warriors of the state – become the real enemies of the public and the rule of law. But the biggest enemies are the philosophical masters who stand above the brainwashed warriors and define their goals as noble and heroic, but direct their will towards evil ends.

If the facts were known, Martial Law in America, and North America, would be defeated before it is even implemented. A military dictatorship won’t last for long if enough people speak up and fight back. We have the numbers, the truth, and the bravery to reclaim freedom for future generations to live happily and prosper in this new century. The traitors and terrorists in Washington are not on the right side of history. They are cowards to be defeated, not giants to be feared.

And the truth is they are scared and ashamed, that’s why they do everything in secret. The shameful FEMA document was posted on a government website called FBO.gov, but was immediately taken down after radio host Alex Jones alerted his listeners to the existence of the document and discussed its broader significance. This shows that the hijacked U.S. government is controlled by very frightened and pathetic people who know they are crossing a red line by quietly setting up a military dictatorship in America.

Aaron Dykes explained why the government’s censorship of the document is unwarranted in his article, “Government censors document revealing plans to wage war on Americans”:
“The government-linked document we posted was marked ‘Source Selection Sensitive’ but not considered classified. Further, it was listed publicly on a government website that was soliciting bids for government contracts. However, despite its public classification, it contains information that clearly is NOT intended to gain wide publicity.”
This document does not tell us anything new. We’ve known for years that there is a conspiracy to destroy America and other Western nations through an engineered economic collapse and a false global war of terror that has been used to legitimize the destruction of basic human rights in the West.

Some facts can no longer be denied and dismissed. It is not a theory that is America is being destroyed by the traitors and terrorists in Washington. It is reality. It is self-evident.

Fortunately, the hijacked U.S. government has no public credibility. Its systematic policy of deceit and fraud, its destruction of the Constitution, and its illegal implementation of Martial Law will backfire severely.

American law professor and lawyer Jonathan Turley said on C-SPAN on December 19, 2011 that most Americans do not fear any foreign threats like Al-Qaeda, but their own unresponsive and out-of-control government:
“We’ve had three polls in the last year and they all show the same thing. The American people say that they are more afraid of the government than they are outside forces like terrorists. So there’s this disconnect. The majority of Americans are actually very concerned about the loss of rights, but Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, can’t move harder against privacy. And this is part of the cynical calculation. I think that President Obama made this calculation early on and decided that no one would be to the right of him on terrorism and national security, and he has taken the Democratic party with him on that.

So you have this remarkable disconnect, where the majority of citizens are going, ‘We’re really concerned about this. We are fearful of our own government,’ and yet it’s just not translating on the hill.”
In the near future, Washington may not even exist. The wild wolves of the new world order in the shadow CIA, and their partners in crime in the shadow Mossad, could burn down Washington D.C. in a false flag attack and relocate in Denver, Colorado.

They have already turned the heart of New York City into a pit of ashes, so what’s stopping them from doing the same to the heart of the capital in the heart of the present global order, Washington D.C?

These psychopathic maniacs are capable of carrying out the greatest acts of evil and destruction in human history. Loss of life on an epic scale means nothing to them. They desire mass death and mass destruction.

In their eyes, they believe they must destroy the basic foundations of America, from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to the grand architecture of Washington D.C., before they can move on and establish their fascist global dictatorship upon the ruins of the old age.

If such a dark and scary scenario unfolds, if Washington is destroyed by the lawless power elite, then Colorado will become America’s green zone, out of which America’s shadow terrorist state will wage war against a politically awakened and rebellious population.

 


Homeland Security PSA says paying for hotel room with cash is “suspicious activity”

Big Sis

Guests checking in at big hotels like the Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton, and Holiday Inn will now be met with the face of Janet Napolitano when they turn on their televisions, as Homeland Security’s ‘See Something, Say Something’ snitch campaign continues to expand.

“The Department of Homeland Security is turning to television and public service announcements to urge U.S. hotel guests to fight terrorism,” reports UPI, adding that PSAs encouraging Americans to “report suspicious activity” which are already playing in hundreds of Wal-Mart stores across the country will be expanded to 5,400 hotels serviced by the television provider LodgeNet.

Indeed, as of Tuesday the messages were already playing as soon as guests turned on their television.

Informing the “millions of guests that stay at hotels and motels each year is a significant step in engaging the full range of partners in our homeland security efforts,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

As we have documented, the promotional videos that have accompanied the launch of the ‘See Something, Say Something’ campaign characterize “suspicious activity” as a whole range of mundane behaviors, including opposing surveillance, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.

Another primary indicator of suspicious activity is also being a white middle class American citizen, if the DHS promo clips are to be believed.

One PSA specifically targeted at hotel employees and hotel guests (watch it below), characterizes paying for a room with cash as a suspicious activity that potentially indicates terrorism. In the clip, the man paying for the reservation presents and ID but his lack of a credit card causes the receptionist to report the man to her boss.

Not using a credit card to settle a hotel bill “is suspicious behavior,” according to the voiceover in the clip.

As we have documented, every historical example of such informant programs illustrates that they never lead to a more secure society, but instead breed suspicion, distrust, fear and resentment amongst the population. The only “benefit” that such programs have ever achieved is allowing the state to more easily identify and persecute political dissidents while discouraging the wider population from engaging in any criticism against the government.

Catching terrorists is the job of trained professionals, it should not be entrusted to Wal-Mart employees, hotel receptionists or holidaymakers.

The Dollar Vigilante
Thursday, October 27, 2011

As a P.T. (often referred to as perpetual traveller, permanent tourist or prior taxpayer), I have travelled to nearly 100 countries.  During those travels there has always been one defining moment, upon entry into a country, which shows that the country is what is generally thought of as a “third world country”.


It is the moment when, upon arrival, you are charged a fee to enter the country.  The reason generally being that the government of the country has so destroyed the economy and/or they have so little understanding of what creates wealth that they think that the way to make their country prosperous is to charge a fee upon entry rather than allowing people to enter freely and transact, trade and spend their money in the economy.  Either that or the government is so desperate for money that it uses this as a significant source of revenue.

They have this in Cambodia, Indonesia, Bolivia and numerous other similar countries.  And now, they have it in the US.

The US has long-used “visa application fees” to bilk money from people in countries like Thailand as a way to raise money but now the US has announced that they are going to charge a $5.50 fee to Canadians upon entering the US.

The fee is ludicrous and counterproductive for many reasons.  Not least of which is making it five dollars and fifty cents, ensuring that payment of the transaction will take twice as long as normal to make the extra change.  Canadians who are one of the only large groups of people still bringing some economic activity into the US will both be turned off by having to pay to enter the US but also by the extra long lines to enter as they make change for this fee.

Not to mention the hilarity of calling it an “inspection fee”.  Does this mean that if we would not like to be inspected then we don’t have to pay?

CHECKPOINTS POPPING UP EVERYWHERE IN THE US

Checkpoints have recently gone up in Flint, Michigan and TSA VIPR (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) teams have spread our across Tennessee to stop drivers and “check their documents”.

As well, at the recent Libertopia conference I attended in San Diego I met three young freedom-lovers who told me that on their drive from Phoenix to San Diego they encountered three different checkpoints.

HARD TO GET IN – EVEN HARDER TO GET OUT

I have just returned from the US and, as usual, I had to make it through a plethora of government people to get out.

Luckily, I didn’t try to leave via one of the airports, like Boston Logan where the TSA has begun to conduct “chat-downs” where TSA goons will slime their way through crowds in the airport and chat with you!  Should you refuse to chat with them you will be taken away for extra-screening!

However, I did go for my standard TSA patdown and, as is becoming more and more common, when you walk down the gangplank to the airplane there are a number of other government people hiding around the corner who stop you and ask if you are taking more than $10,000 with you.  I snapped a photo of them on my way down.

As I walked down the runway, one of the men with guns told me, “go to the third man down, he can take care of you there.”  Oh, is that what they are doing, taking care of us?  It doesn’t feel that way.

CHRONIC NERVOUS SYSTEM DISORDER INJECTIONS ALSO NOW AVAILABLE

Things in the US just get more and more bizarre.

As though all the government harassing isn’t enough, as I was about to leave the San Diego airport I spotted this “H1N1 vaccination station”.

H1N1 (remember the Swine Flu hoax?) has been shown to be nearly harmless yet still to this day, in the USA, there are places offering to give you H1N1 vaccinations.  Those vaccinations, by the way, have been proven to cause chronic nervous system disorders.  I, tragically, had this hit very close to home last year when my mother, unbeknownst to me, got talked into taking a Swine Flu vaccine shot.  A few days later and she couldn’t walk anymore.  She still, to this day, cannot walk.

THE POLICE STATE CONTINUES

The photos coming out of the US continue to look like something you’d see in a country like North Korea or in the old Soviet Bloc.

This photo, from a small gathering of Occupy Wall Street protesters in Phoenix, shows that not only the police outnumbered the protesters but showed the level of intimidation and force used against just a few people sitting in a park.  Their crime?  They were there after “curfew”.  I’ve been searching my copy of the US Constitution for any reference to curfew but have yet to find anything.

MY DAYS VISITING THE US ARE NUMBERED

I have already stated that I will never bring my family to the US until I see major changes and the TSA stop their radiation baths and groping.  However, it is now getting very close to the point where I will stop going altogether.

For anyone who has their eyes open and are paying attention, the writing is on the wall as to what is going to happen in the US.  All it will take is another 9/11 event or for the US Government to default on its debts or for the dollar to enter hyperinflation and the US will be locked down like a prison.

In many ways, it already is.

For those who live in the US, it is imperative to begin making moves now to protect yourself.  Action items like attaining a foreign passport, moving your assets outside of the country and owning precious metals are just some of the things that all rational people in the US should be doing now.

Predatory police state shifts focus to ‘guilty until proven innocent’

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Thursday, September 29, 2011

The Pentagon is developing spy drones that can identify individuals by their facial features and also denote targets by their “adversarial intent,” part of the new approach of treating everyone as guilty until proven innocent as law enforcement across America turns to unmanned vehicles as a crime fighting tool.


The Army has recently handed out six contracts to companies in the pursuit of developing a system that can tag and track an individual based on their facial biometrics and track them permanently even if they get lost in a crowd.

“If this works out, we’ll have the ability to track people persistently across wide areas,” says Tim Faltemier, the lead biometrics researcher at Progeny Systems Corporation, which recently won one of the Army contracts. “A guy can go under a bridge or inside a house. But when he comes out, we’ll know it was the same guy that went in.”

Once the system captures an image composed of just 50 pixels of the person’s face, it can then build a complete 3D profile and keep track of their movements from 750 feet away.

“With backing by the Army, researchers from Notre Dame and Michigan State Universities collected images of faces at a “Twins Days” festival. Progeny then zeroed in on the twins’ scars, marks, and tattoos — and were able to spot one from the other. The company says the software can help the military “not only learn the identity of subjects but also their associations in social groups,” reports Wired.

Related software designed to identify individuals “most likely to harbor ill will toward the U.S. military or its objectives,” is also being developed for the Army by Charles River Analytics. Their “Adversary Behavior Acquisition, Collection, Understanding, and Summarization (ABACUS)” tool uses information collated from phone calls, informant tips and drone footage to create “threat assessments of individuals and groups”.

As we have previously reported, using technology to identify “malintent” is now the cutting edge of predatory police state technology set to be used against the American people as the entire focus of law enforcement shifts to guilty until proven innocent.

Pre-crime face scanning “lie detectors” are already being readied for airport and other “security” applications. If the technology judges you to be harboring emotions of distress, fear or distrust, you’ll be subjected to an interrogation. The fact that the system “successfully discriminates between truth and lies in about two-thirds of cases,” which equates to little more accuracy than chance alone, making it even less reliable than the notorious polygraph test, doesn’t seem to be a major concern for the developers.

The DHS also recently field tested their “FAST” program, which is also based around forcing people to undergo interrogations and then measuring their physiological responses to decide whether or not they have “malintent” and could be a criminal or a terrorist.

If you think that drone technology is solely for use against insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq, then think again. Everything developed for use in war zones abroad is already being tested domestically.

The Department of Homeland Security has already given the green light for a helicopter-style drone that can tase suspects from above.

“There’s a good chance ShadowHawk’s spine tingling buzz could be heard approaching a city near you,” reported Singularity Hub.

“As a sign of new law enforcement tactics to come, the Sheriff’s Office of Montgomery County, Texas was recently awarded a grant by the Department of Homeland Security for a squadron of ShadowHawks. Montgomery County’s Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel is psyched. “We are very excited about the funding and looking forward to placing the equipment into the field. Both my narcotics and SWAT units have been looking at numerous ways to deploy it and I absolutely believe it will become a critical component on all SWAT callouts and narcotics raids and emergency management operations.”

 


Despite clear legal precedent, nationwide hoax that it is illegal to film cops prevails

Paul Joseph Watson

Cops arrested an Illinois man and tried to hit him with a 15-year jail sentence for “eavesdropping” after the man filmed his own traffic stop, in another example of how citizens are being intimidated out of documenting the actions of public servants despite every single case against Americans for recording police officers being thrown out of court.

“I’m just an ordinary citizen. I was on my way to the movies, and all of a sudden I’m facing a felony and 15 years in prison,” Frobe told ABC7.

Convinced that he had been stopped unfairly because he was not in a 35-mile-an-hour zone, Frobe used his flip camera to record the incident in Lindenhurst, before being arrested on “eavesdropping charges”.

Officer: “That recording? Frobe : “Yes, Yes, I’ve been… Officer: “Was it recording all of our conversation? Frobe: “Yes. Officer: “Guess what? You were eavesdropping on our conversation. I did not give you permission to do so. Step out of the vehicle.”

“I was terrified. I was absolutely terrified. I was begging him, I said I didn’t know about this law. Would you please take the camera – this is no big deal – and smash it. You know I didn’t know about the law,” Frobe told ABC7.

“And they had audio and they had video on me, but I’m not allowed to do it to them. I’m in a private car on a public street and it’s a public official. Why shouldn’t I be able to record what’s going on to prove my innocence?” he said.

After spending a night in jail, Frobe was released the next day and all charges against him were dropped. However, Frobe has decided to file a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law, an effort the Attorney General’s office has dismissed, but legal precedent clearly indicates that Frobe will win the case.

The Illinois eavesdropping law has been proven unconstitutional time and time again, and yet police in the state and other states around the country with even less strict laws are still arresting citizens for filming police officers. There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in a public place – that’s why police are allowed to film citizens from dashboard cameras. However, citizens are still being told they have less rights than public servants.

“It’s a public conversation about a public function. A traffic stop,” attorney Torri Hamilton said.

“He has no reasonable expectation that his conversation with Louis is private, and so therefore it shouldn’t be criminal to record it,” said Hamilton.

That stance has been backed up by court rulings over and over again, most recently in the case of Michael Allison, the 41-year old Illinois mechanic who faced life in jail for recording police officers. Despite aggressive efforts by the state to secure a prosecution, Circuit Court Judge David Frankland ruled that Allison’s First Amendment rights had been violated, that the eavesdropping law was unconstitutional, and dropped the case.

Frankland’s decision followed a First Circuit Court of Appeals ruling which found that, “The filming of government officials engaged in their duties in a public place, including police officers performing their responsibilities, fits comfortably within these principles [of protected First Amendment activity].”

Indeed, every similar case nationwide has concluded in all charges being dropped against the defendant. It is not illegal to film police officers in public.

Despite these rulings, we seem to have entered some kind of twilight zone where legal precedent no longer has any meaning. This is the true measure of a predatory police state. Cops are still being trained by their superiors that recording police officers is a criminal offense.

It’s time to put an end to the hoax once and for all – it’s going to take a deluge of lawsuits like that being pursued by Louis Frobe to finally teach law enforcement bodies in America that citizens will not have their First Amendment rights trampled. Filming police officers is not a crime and cops who arrest Americans for doing so will be sued personally.

The effectiveness of the Occupy Wall Street protests is being blunted by the internet corporation Yahoo, according to activists.

According to a pair of videos posted on YouTube, the company intentionally blocked emails that included “occupywallst.org,” the main website of the effort to shut down New York’s financial district organized by a shadowy group of hackers known as Anonymous.

“Your message was not sent. Suspicious activity has been detected on your account. To protect your account and our users, your message has not been sent. If this error continues, please contact Yahoo! Customer Care for further help. We apologize for the inconvenience,” a message states after emails are sent via Yahoo.

The videos show users successfully sending emails with different addresses.

Yahoo claims the error messages were “unintentional” and caused by spam filters.

Yahoo is notorious for helping the authoritarian government of China build its censorship firewall, known as the Great Firewall of China.

China’s government aggressively seeks out and imprisons activist bloggers. In 2001, activists were arrested and sentenced to ten year prison terms for using Yahoo accounts to send email. Activists subsequently sued Yahoo for its effort to block emails targeted by the Chinese government.

Yahoo, YouTube, Google, MySpace, and ISPs have been accused of blocking and censoring activist email, websites, and videos for years.

Infowars.com posted a page of links to articles documenting the effort by corporations and the establishment to prevent activists from using the internet.

On Tuesday, Anonymous accused the New York Police of attempting to shut down its media operation during a violent raid.

“2 members of #OccupyWallStreet media team & another person arrested for trying to use a tarp to protect communications equipment from rain,” an AnonOps tweet reads. The group claims police confiscated some of the media team’s equipment.

A video of the arrests was posted on YouTube:

The recent US government raid of Gibson Guitars’ Tennessee manufacturing facility is now receiving widespread media coverage, thanks to a flood of reports that have appeared across the web in recent weeks, including here atNaturalNews.


But beyond simply the raid itself is the reality of the new environmental police state that appears to be taking over, where personal wood products of all kinds — whether they be furniture, hand tools, or even guns made with rare wood stocks — are now threatened with arbitrary confiscation.

As we mentioned previously, the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) use of the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Lacey Act of 2008 to invoke the Gibson raid sets a chilling precedent for the environmental police to go after others, including ordinary individuals, who may possess wood products deemed unacceptable, even if such wood products were obtained legally.

You see, Gibson’s import of rosewood and ebony from India was not illegal under either US or Indian law. FWS merely decided to interpret Indian law in its own illogical way, and invoke the Lacey Act as justification for its illegal raid. And if the agency gets away with doing this to Gibson, they will surely do it again to others.

The issue surrounding Gibson’s imports had to do with specifics about where it imported wood was actually manufactured, not where it was imported. But even though both the US and Indian governments approved the exports, which they do for virtually all other guitar manufacturers, FWS selectively targeted Gibson for enforcement of a law that basically does not even exist.

Why did FWS do this? One reason, as we reported earlier, is to outsource remaining US jobs overseas (http://www.naturalnews.com/033506_G…). But another reason is to assert strict control over the use of natural resources like rare woods, which are used in a variety of products besides guitars.

In other words, if FWS actions against Gibson are allowed to prevail unpunished, there is no reason why the agency cannot and will not use the Lacey Act to go after owners, traders, and sellers of other products that contain rare wood materials, which include personal handguns and rifles. Yes, when taken to its logical conclusion, FWS could theoretically invoke gun confiscation in the name of protecting the environment.

The American police state truly is growing at an unprecedented rate, which is evidenced by the unveiling of this new environmental police force that is eager to confiscate personal property in the name of enforcing (fictitious) laws. If it is not stopped now, it will continue to grow until not a shred of freedom remains.


PSA’s encouraging Americans to report on each other coincide with dubious terror alert

A Department of Homeland Security PSA now airing on cable news networks depicts yet another white, middle class American as the most likely terrorist, continuing a clear trend of Big Sis characterizing her primary political opposition as domestic extremists and coinciding with a dubious terror alert.

The video shows a well-dressed white man leaving a bag on a train before exiting onto the platform. The PSA is part of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign which encourages people to report “suspicious activity,” and yet the only people seen engaging in suspicious activity in the vast majority of scenarios put to film by the DHS have been well-dressed, white American citizens.

Although produced back in April, the PSA is now airing on cable news networks and other platforms to coincide with the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

As we have documented at length, the Department of Homeland Security has produced a series of PSA’s which deliberately portray white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists. Although the federal agency later denied the clips had any racial overtones, in one such PSA, in 12 out of 15 of the scenarios depicted, the suspects are white. In addition, of the people depicted as patriotic Americans for reporting the terrorists, only one of them is white, while seven are from minorities.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which is tied at the hip with Homeland Security, later admitted that the DHS videos featured, “mostly white “terrorists,” while the actors portraying citizens who report their suspicious activities are all minorities,” yet labeled Alex Jones paranoid for pointing out the disconnect between Big Sis homing in on whites as the big terror threat despite the fact that in 2009 and 2010, of the 126 people who were indicted on terrorist-related charges in the United States, all of them were Muslim.

According to the SPLC, it is not Homeland Security, but Alex Jones who has “crossed the Rubicon of race,” for believing the “conspiracy theory” that the feds think “whites are the new Al Qaeda,” even as Homeland Security itself produces video after video portraying whites as the most likely terrorists.

The controversy even prompted television star and conservative political icon Chuck Norris to warn that the federal government had changed its, “strategy from catching foreign terrorists to targeting white middle-class Americans who are against big government as terrorists.”

Norris said the PSA’s were part of the Obama administration’s political move to demonize “tea partyers, anti-Fed activists and even veterans,” as dangerous domestic radicals.

In highlighting the DHS’ obvious efforts to deliberately portray white people as the most likely terrorists, whether for political correctness or as part of a demonization agenda, those merely bringing attention to the issue have been accused of racism, when in reality the federal government is the only entity deliberately fostering racism by repeatedly portraying white middle class Americans as terrorists.

The PSA’s are now receiving widespread airplay on cable news networks over the tenth anniversary week of 9/11, coinciding with a dubious warning put out by the DHS that terrorists could be planning to blow up bridges or tunnels in New York, alerts that have routinely proven to be hyped, flimsy and outright manufactured in the past.
