Police State America - A Look Back and Ahead

by Stephen Lendman

Year end is a good time to look back and reflect on what's ahead. If past is prologue, however, the outlook isn't good, and nothing on the horizon suggests otherwise. Voters last November wanted change but got betrayal from the bipartisan criminal class in Washington. Their attitude shows in an October Reuters/Zogby (RZ) opinion poll with George Bush at 24% that tops Richard Nixon's worst showing of 25% at his lowest 1974 Watergate point. And if that looks bad, consider Congress with "The Hill" reporting from the same RZ Index that our legislators scored a "staggering 11%, the lowest (congressional) rating in history," but there's room yet to hit bottom and a year left to do it. Why not with lawmakers' consistent voter sellout and failure record that keeps getting worse.

It's been that way ever since 9/11 with both sides of the aisle complicit with the administration. This article looks back at the record, and year end is a good time to review it. It's hard imagining another as bad with a President defiling the law and once telling Republican colleagues the Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper."

He didn't just say it. He governs by it, gets away with it, and former Defense Department analyst Daniel Ellsberg, of Pentagon Papers fame, says "a coup has occurred (with another to come from) the next 9/11....that completes the first (that's) seen a steady assault on every fundamental (aspect) of our Constitution (to create) an executive government (to) rule by decree" no different from a police state...

Rad Analyst,

You had commented on an article I wrote relating to the Pakistan 9/11connection a few weeks ago and I just wanted to respond before I commented on this article from Stephen Lendman. Its good to know there are more people out there that at least take the time to inform people like yourself, this is of paramount importance. Responding to what people can do and how we get people fired up, I have been actively campaigning for Ron Paul in recent weeks in any way I can, I think this is extremely important. Waking up the apathetic is a huge task but I think discussions about these serious problems in our country need to be started at every possible chance. Ron Pauls messege makes it so easy to inform people.

Now, regarding Stephens article. I had never even heard of this guy, Im glad there are other people that put as much time into exposing the NWO as Alex Jones. I also had no idea the extent of the laws Bush has implemented since becoming president, its unbelievable.

I also wanted to ask you if you are informed about the Committe of 300 and the never ending think tanks which are funded by these people. I recently discovered this committee and John Coleman who has been exposing them for years. It has opened my eyes to the history of the Tavistock insitute. I think the behaviour modification techniques introduced by this institute have permeated the world's societies so deeply, we must increase exposure of the evil doers immediately. I commend your blog and your desire to reach other like-minded people.
