Washington’s Blog has this post on how Washington, D.C. is like a separate country, one that couldn’t care less about the American people. The writer notes that Washington, D.C. is full of life-long politicians, their media propagandists, industrial private-sector government contractors and their lobbyists, apparently 60% of whom think that the economy is getting better, while the rest of America recognizes that everything is getting worse.
You see, this is what you get when you centralize power and authority as has been done in America the past century, to the point that D.C. has become the Leviathan dictatorship tyranny that it was inevitably destined to be with such centralization. Culturally, we have a society in which covetousness of everyone else’s wealth and property is acceptable, positively reinforced and encouraged, and institutionalized through positive legislation, fascist, protectionist regulations and just plain outright thievery (IRS).
But to the point that Washington’s Blog notes that D.C. is a separate country, I have noted before that we need to be realistic and view the federal government for what it is: an invading, occupying foreign government. The occupation is largely in D.C., but its parasitic, dictatorial reach goes into each of the 50 states, those states whose inhabitants have willingly given up their inalienable rights to life, liberty and property, and who have bent over backwards to let the goons of Leviathan rape them repeatedly, and increasingly more severely.
Now, the intrusions and crimes of Obama’s UnhealthyCare and the Dodd-Frank-Elizabeth Warren-Bankster bureaucracies are totalitarian in their pursuit of prying into the private lives of Americans, their medical matters and their businesses. But, because of the overwhelming militarization of “law enforcement” due to Drug Prohibition and terrorism fear-mongering, there have been plenty examples of how the reason we need to view the federal government as an occupying foreign government and therefore an enemy of our liberty, security and property, is because those people view us as their enemy! Here are some examples:
The U.S. military’s psychological-operations (psy-ops). I have brought that up twice before. As I noted here, Psy-ops are generally used on foreign government agents or diplomats to influence their emotions and decisions to become favorable to one’s own ends. Psy-ops are often used on the enemy during times of war. But when the U.S. military personnel use psy-ops on their own fellow Americans, in this case on U.S. senators who represent the American people, we can conclude from that that these generals really do view their fellow Americans as the enemy.
Another example has been the U.S. Justice (sic) Department’s operation “Fast and Furious,” engaging in a gun-running op to Mexican drug cartels, who then use the guns on innocent Americans. I still can’t believe that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holster has not been charged with the obvious cover-up of this whole thing, not to mention for the operation itself. Only foolish, incompetent government bureaucrats would be stupid enough to run a gun-dealing operation to violent criminals in another country, or even within their own country.
I heard Michael Savage a few months ago speculate that this operation might be on purpose for those totalitarians in D.C. to increase their anti-gun hysteria, for the purpose of disarming Americans even more than they already are. Give them absolute power, give them the guns and let them take yours, and then you are their prisoner. After all, men are angels, you know.
After their interventionism has ruined America’s economy and taken away all hope from future generations, the Leviathan bureaucrats and their cohorts in CONgress and at the Fed believe that an economic collapse will happen, which will be followed by chaos, civil unrest, rioting and looting, and the detention camps are already being set up all across the country. Yes, Jamit Napolitano is ready to oversee the concentration camps, and, don’t forget, Jamit, don’t forget the Tea Party terrorists, the military vets, the anti-war protesters, and so forth.
This is all an inevitable result of when you centralize everything, including and especially national security. Because D.C., the invading and occupying foreign government residing in the 202 area code, has a monopoly on territorial protection in which no alternative is allowed for the people to choose from, you have given the bureaucrats carte blanche power and their agenda will be not the protection of the American people, but the constant, never-ending expansion of the bureaucrats own power. Monopolists — especially those whose monopoly all Americans are compelled to use for protection — are not accountable. When you give them a monopoly in territorial protection (a.k.a. “defense”), they will use those monopolistic armed powers to act aggressively against and provoke foreigners, and that is exactly what we have had for a century.
The D.C. Leviathan monopolists constantly committed aggressions against and provoked the inhabitants of the Middle Eastern countries especially since 1990, with Iraq, with sanctions that followed, provoking retaliation and widespread anti-Americanism throughout the Middle East leading up to 9/11. Since 9/11, the D.C. monopolists have been fear-mongering and terrorizing the American people to accept further U.S. invasions against and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, accept further and further police state aggressions against our liberty, property, homes and businesses, a situation in which the government is much more guilty of actual terrorism than the Islamic terrorists have been.
In fact, one American who has been terrorized by the FBI goons and intruders, Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo, reports today that the FBI goons have been investigating Antiwar.com, and for what, writing a column that explains some of the crimes the D.C. protection-racket monopolists are committing?
Slowly, but surely, the author of this FBI memo is building a case: the document is written in the language of an indictment – but what are the charges? That Antiwar.com is widely read and cited? That we posted a publicly available document on the internet, one that was published by Cryptome.org and others? That we are in league with neo-Nazis and are hoping to start a race war and initiate a reign of terror? Well, that’s just a warm-up, folks, because it’s worse than that:
“File 17A-LA-234485 serial 55, dated 11/10/2003 indicated that on 10/27/2003, a special agent reviewed the computer hard drives of [several words redacted]. The review of two hard drives revealed visits to many websites between 07/25/2002 and 06/15/2003. One of the websites listed was antiwar.com.”
Of course, we’re terrorists – yes, that must be it. Otherwise why would the FBI Counterterrorism Unit be taking such an interest in Antiwar.com? And the proof? Well, someone snared in one of their investigations actually went to our website – more than once! If that isn’t a good reason for the feds to set their dogs sniffing around our garbage cans, well then I don’t know what is.
You see, when the American people are more informed about what the invading and occupying foreign regime in Washington is up to, with one crime after another against the people, the central goons go after those who are turning the lights on them. To the invading, occupying foreign regime in D.C., we the American people are their enemy.
A better case for dissolving the “union,” and for states to secede and take back their freedom, independence and sovereignty could not have been made better by the regimes of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
