Is The Government Running Scared?

I have been noticing more and more unrest among the American people. Not just in personal conversations with people but all over the internet. People are waking up to the fact that we are bankrupt, the economy is never going to turn around, and this crushing debt load is unmanageable. The government's response to that unrest should raise some eyebrows.

Passing and signing the NDAA on New Year's Eve when nobody was looking- was a telltale sign. Anyone it seems can now be called a terrorist and held indefinitely without due process.

Government's corporate cronies, the arm that masquerades as mainstream media- hardly reported the single greatest act of tyranny since the days of the King.

Prior to that and ever so quietly, FEMA has announced new bids for camps to detain people in. Again, mainstream media whiffs. This is an excellent piece.

FEMA apparently knew in advance that Congress and the President were going to pass NDAA. FEMA's call for bids pre-dates Obama signing the bill by three weeks. That type of telegraphed intention is scary. It means all of those veto threats and subsequent signing rhetoric by Obama was always bullshit. Not that Obama- intentionally misleading people - is some sort of isolated event. That's how he was elected.

It seems like any unconstitutional or tyrannical act by the Obama administration simply doesn't get reported by the mainstream media. Maybe the media is too embarrassed. Perhaps they have some sense of shame- they should.

This caught my eye this morning.

Not even the rich and elite are sacred anymore. One bank, UBS, was hiding 20 billion dollars for the American elite. Our government, long ago insolvent, is going to try any desperate act they can to pay the bills and keep on spending. It amounts to pissing in the ocean. Here's the government bullying it's away through Switzerland.

Sadly, nobody except those with swiss bank accounts will care. Maybe those parking money in Lichtenstein. Once the large and low hanging fruit is picked, the IRS will come looking for the rest of us. The police state is here. And that includes the TSA expanding operations everywhere. More coincidence here.

Government plans. As it desperately tries to cling to power and relevancy, it will do anything and everything in it's power to retain power and control. That includes covering up every crime from Corzine's 1.2 billion dollar embezzlement to the Fast and Furious scandal which has killed hundreds of people. Two of our agents and hundreds of Mexicans. For some folks, they won't want to believe this. They will remain in a state of denial long after the government confiscates their wealth and property and puts their crazy uncle in one of those FEMA camps. Government wouldn't do that, would it? Those will be the drooling types- claiming conspiracies don't exist.

Scared dogs, scared people, and scared governments do desperate things. They attack when threatened. For some of us- the government's actions are quite predictable.

THe current crop of guys running the federal government are all suspect. Every last one of them. I don't know if I would blame their skullduggery on systemic failures, however, Brian.

Get a bunch of conservatives elected, and a little swamp draining might occur. Not enough, but some.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

It's about time I saw something here about NDAA. I thought you might have missed it too like most of the rest of the majority. It's funny how Dems & Repubs can't seem to agree on anything except that US citizens should no longer be entitled to a fair trial. I am outraged!
