Something's in the works to trigger a Poliice State
Old-line Republican warns 'something's in the works' to trigger a police state
Published: Thursday July 19, 2007
Thom Hartmann began his program on Thursday by reading from a new Executive Order which allows the government to seize the assets of anyone who interferes with its Iraq policies.
He then introduced old-line conservative Paul Craig Roberts -- a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan who has recently become known for his strong opposition to the Bush administration and the Iraq War -- by quoting the "strong words" which open Roberts' latest column: "Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran."
"I don't actually think they're very strong," said Roberts of his words. "I get a lot of flak that they're understated and the situation is worse than I say. ... When Bush exercises this authority [under the new Executive Order] ... there's no check to it. It doesn't have to be ratified by Congress. The people who bear the brunt of these dictatorial police state actions have no recourse to the judiciary. So it really is a form of total, absolute, one-man rule. ... The American people don't really understand the danger that they face."
Roberts said that because of Bush's unpopularity, the Republicans face a total wipeout in 2008, and this may be why "the Democrats have not brought a halt to Bush's follies or the war, because they expect his unpopular policies to provide them with a landslide victory in next year's election."
However, Roberts emphasized, "the problem with this reasoning is that it assumes that Cheney and Rove and the Republicans are ignorant of these facts, or it assumes that they are content for the Republican Party to be destroyed after Bush has his fling." Roberts believes instead that Cheney and Rove intend to use a renewal of the War on Terror to rally the American people around the Republican Party. "Something's in the works," he said, adding that the Executive Orders need to create a police state are already in place.
"The administration figures themselves and prominent Republican propagandists ... are preparing us for another 9/11 event or series of events," Roberts continued. "Chertoff has predicted them. ... The National Intelligence Estimate is saying that al Qaeda has regrouped. ... You have to count on the fact that if al Qaeda's not going to do it, it's going to be orchestrated. ... The Republicans are praying for another 9/11."
Hartmann asked what we as the people can do if impeachment isn't about to happen. "If enough people were suspicious and alert, it would be harder for the administration to get away with it," Roberts replied. However, he added, "I don't think these wake-up calls are likely to be effective," pointing out the dominance of the mainstream media.
"Americans think their danger is terrorists," said Roberts. "They don't understand the terrorists cannot take away habeas corpus, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. ... The terrorists are not anything like the threat that we face to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution from our own government in the name of fighting terrorism. Americans just aren't able to perceive that."
Roberts pointed out that it's old-line Republicans like himself, former Reagan associate deputy attorney general Bruce Fein, and Pat Buchanan who are the diehards in warning of the danger. "It's so obvious to people like us who have long been associated in the corridors of power," he said. "There's no belief in the people or anything like that. They have agendas. The people are in the way. The Constitution is in the way. ... Americans need to comprehend and look at how ruthless Cheney is. ... A person like that would do anything."
Roberts final suggestion was that, in the absence of a massive popular outcry, "the only constraints on what's going to happen will come from the federal bureaucracy and perhaps the military. They may have had enough. They may not go along with it."
I hate it when they say, "He gave his life for his country." Nobody gives their life for anything. We steal the lives of these kids. We take it away from them. They don't die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them."-- Admiral Gene LaRocque

I don't know about everybody, but, I get the distinct feeling that something has got to give. I just read that Iran put on a Parade of some sort, in that parade Iran mocked the U.S. and Israel with some Ant-Zionist floats and other things Anti-American. This may seem like nothing to you all, but, when you consider that Iran Russia China India etc.. now have the ability to literally destroy the U.S. It's no wonder the Zionist are behind the eight ball,(so to speak) they know there World Empire is crumbling around them fast, They, though hold the ultimate (ace up there sleeve)and that is the world's largest Gold Supply,(all of Americas STOLEN TREASURE) of course, and not to mention the world's largest Arsenal of High Tech Weaponry.
Something has got to give, World Government, has been a 'evasive' step for them since time immemorial, Just how do they expect people to succumb to the chip and everything else is puzzling, but, I suspect that the crashing economy and the coming food and water crisis will make people beg for the government to fix there problems, (World Government) NWO.
Note: Africa has been a "test case" for World Government for hundreds of years, the Famines, the Wars, Plagues(Aids,Ebola), Economic Calamity, etc.. most of the Affrican Nations have resisted thus far.
Check this out...
Iranian Revolutionary Guards on the march, you know, the ones designated as a terrorist organization By BUSH/CHENEY/ISRAEL are now mocking the Zionist. That picture is a SWORD plowing through the U.S. flag. talk about Gumption, No Fear! You have to wonder with OIL at nearly 100 dollars a barrel, That Iran is playing games with the Zionist, in order to squeeze billions in Oil profits????scare tactics, just like the good ole U.S.A uses. talk about turning the tables.
