It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
– Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986)
Abstract I: Intent of this Article
With all the patriotic, good government, world beacon of freedom and democracy, and America is the greatest nation propaganda that Americans are indoctrinated with since childhood; most are hard-pressed to face the reality that the United States is now exhibiting striking attributes that it is sinking toward a closed fascist society. – Image courtesy of antemedius.com.
I need to stress three points about this article. Please recognize that it is an editorial and an analysis of current affairs. This means you will not see referenced citations for all points discussed because most facts are well established in the historical record and therefore not in dispute. However, plentiful links and embedded videos by credible and independent sources are provided that inspired some of the content and analysis.
The purpose of this article is not to repeat the facts and news stories of other texts and articles. The intent is to illustrate the true nature of the United States government by using freely available information to connect the dots in a way that may not have been considered before.
Abstract II: Defining Fascism
The new face of fascism isn’t necessarily white anymore. It may come in different flavors however it is still served in the similar cold dish of collectivism with the main course a government by the people for the government for the corporation. And, we the people always pick up the tab. Perhaps there is such a thing as a “free lunch,” for the very lucky few. – Image by unknown.
Secondly, what is fascism? Although I may have difficulty defining it I know it when I see it. However it is always best to begin with the dictionary definition to determine if it reflects what we are seeing today. Dictionary.com defines fascism as:
(sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
This of course is the traditional meaning of fascism as racism does not play a key role in American fascism. Moreover, the dictator is not a single person but a group of elite or ruling class despots all working together for their own interests. For a thorough definition please visit the Wikipedia definition for fascism.
The primary element of any fascist state is collectivism. It places a higher value on the concerns of the group over the rights of the individual. Thus the needs or even life of any single human being or all people of any smaller group can be sacrificed for the greater good. However, this term is really just a misnomer because it is almost solely applied by those who drive public policy to serve their own hidden illicit agendas.
Thus American fascism is rooted in the trading of other people’s wealth and liberty by those in power in exchange for personal gain and it is done without the consent or knowledge of those being compromised. A paraphrase from the Gettysburg Address nicely packages democracy (and freedom) – a government by the people for the people. With traditional fascism we have a government by the people for the government. With contemporary American fascism government becomes a conduit for a third party – a government by the people for the government for the corporation.
Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tx) describes American fascism as soft fascism. This is also known as corporatism. This means fascism is a spectrum with the most extreme form being that of Benito Mussolini’s Italy, Hitler’s Germany, or Stalin’s Soviet Union.
To prove that the United States reflects many traits of traditional fascism this article will reveal how all people are manipulated with questionable principles to support public policies that are harmful to society; demonstrate how our elected leaders are eroding our civil rights; disclose how the government is managed by an elite class of despots through corporatism, other private interests such as labor unions, and because of foreign interests such as the Israel lobby (AIPAC) and European banks; and advance why democracy is very limited to anemic representation in Washington and other levels of government.
Others have taken a point by point approach and these also inspired my analysis. These are very good for a quick overview but they do not examine how the collective mind of the public is systematically shaped to support public policies that lean toward fascism.

It is dire to correct this before it becomes too deep otherwise just like Third Reich Germany, there is a possibility of history repeating itself and we may have reached a point of no return. I sincerely hope my analysis will motivate readers to take effective action whatever form that may take.
The following embedded video is of the whole interview of Ron Paul on NBC’s Meet The Press with Tim Russert. Before moving on it is important to note that most republics (states) now exhibit a sort of states-level soft fascism through labor unions who represent government workers.
A mysterious, cobweblike growth with a fondness for Savannah River Site’s spent nuclear fuel has been identified – but not formally named.
The “white, stringlike” substance was first observed in October among old fuel assemblies
“We were able to identify a large portion of the bacteria making up the cobwebs, but there were certainly some where the DNA sequencing came back as unknown,” [Christopher Berry, the senior technical adviser of the Savannah River National Labortory (sic)] said.
Although rare, bacterial colonies have been observed in a few nuclear environments, including a Canadian reactor and at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania, where a growth developed in the site’s spent fuel basin after its 1979 accident.

Illuminati – the Illuminati is a secret orginazation of the most powerful and influential elite in the world. They go back for centuries and maintain the same bloodlines. They set up the council on foreign relations,the bilderberg group and the tri-laterial commission. Those 3 groups all meet to plan the fate of the world. They consists of international bankers,top government officials,leaders in the energy cartel and media monopoly owners and have control over the U.N. and Unesco. Their subdivisions reach into everyones daily life without most sheeple even being aware of it. They also have ties to the freemasons,skull and bones, and the knights templar.Their ultimate goal is for a one world government which they will control,also a one world currency, and they want control and ownership of all land, property, resources and people. Also they manipulate political parties,and the legal and illigal drug trade and federal agencies related to all matters listed above.
Taken from urbandictionary.com One needs to read about Zagami below this article~jude
By Henry Makow PhD 1-7-7
At the New Year, Leo Zagami, 36, has an urgent message.
The Illuminati plan to “Nazify” the West by the year 2012 and persecute all believers in God, using the pretext of war, terror and economic collapse.
The scion of an ancient Illuminati family, Zagami had a religious conversion (to Islam) last June and rebelled. He’d had enough of the horrifying Satanic, black magic rituals, mind control and torture that was going on inside the lodges, behind closed doors.
On Saturday he posted on his web site Illuminati Confessions~[Website Taken Down]~jude
http://www.illuminaticonfessions.webfriend.it/#news1 names of high ranking Masons who are ready to do battle with the Satanists. He has organized his own security detail and even posted a personal phone number to answer serious questioners about his sincerity.
“These are the end times; it’s no joke,” Zagami says in an January 3 interview on his website.
“The cosmic alignment on the 21st of December 2012 gives you 6 years to prepare… So its about time you all wake up and fight for your right to stay free under one God before they take complete control and start persecuting the true believers in the one God. Get your swords and get ready to fight to defend your faith or perish. This is a war against Satan so please wake up in the western countries or you might wake up in a nightmare one morning in December 2012.”
“From 2010 you will start feeling the big changes in the air more and more but in 2012 you will have the clear evidence of the end of this civilization in front of your eyes.the total NAZIFICATION of the western countries by 2010 before the economic situation starts to badly crack for everyone. Then social tension will hit a peak never seen before and internal conflicts could eventually become in 2012: CIVIL WAR!”
“Are you ready to die for God and your believe in a positive change for the world or are you all a bunch of cowards in the hands of the devil, just talking and talking with no sense of reality?”
As an ex-member of the Comitato Esecutivo Massonico – Masonic Executive Committee (MEC) of Monte Carlo, Zagami was, until recently, a true insider, a 33rd degree Freemason, and a high-member of the infamous Freemasonic P2 (Propaganda 2) Lodge. He was the “prince”, prepared to take over from the older Illuminati “king”, Licio Gelli.
“This is a hostile step by Argentina,” Said Spain’s Prime Minister
“Who cares!” would probably be the most common reaction of readers discovering the topic of this article. At first sight, few will worry about the Argentinean government expropriation of Spanish Repsol shares in YPF, Argentina’s national oil company. Yet, due to the delicate situation of the euro, the central role Spain is playing in the ongoing European financial crisis, and the sheer size of the companies involved, anyone in Europe and the USA should care. The fact is that another illegitimate theft by a South American state took place yesterday, April 16, 2012, and it may be the announcement of similar such steps in the near future. Argentina is endangering the euro, and indirectly, the American dollar.
Argentinean President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced yesterday the beginning of a legislative process aimed at the expropriation of 51% of Class D YPF shares from Repsol within thirty days. The Spanish company owns over 57% of YPF. This move will transfer the ownership of the oil company from Repsol to the Argentinean government. Meanwhile, that Argentinean government took over the administration of the confiscated company; a government minister will oversee its Argentina’s Underground-style Theft
activities until the ownership transfer is completed. Spain was fast to declare the move was illegitimate and that it will react harshly in the near future. “This is a hostile step by Argentina,” said Mariano Rajoy, the recently elected Spanish prime minister.
Populist Peronism Hits Again
The current Argentinean president belongs to the Peronist Party. So did her husband, who was the previous president. So were Isabel Peron and Juan Domingo Peron, another presidential couple of the 20thCentury. Nepotism is an intrinsic characteristic of Peronism. Juan Domingo Peron gave his name to this populist party, which eventually preceded—and some would say caused—the brutal military dictatorships that ruled Argentina off and on during the second half of the previous century.
Chapter 13 of the biblical Book of Revelation is a very revealing text. It refers to the number 666 as being the mark of ‘the beast’.
But, in the Periodic Table of the Elements, the atomic number for the Carbon element is six.
If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a Man. Revelation 13:18
Dr. Max G. Lagally, BS, MS, Ph.D, is a Professor of Surface Science. In 2006, he began developing Silicon membranes in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In his research, he has discovered that the surface of a Silicon membrane can be functionalized to become biologically sensitive. He theorizes that it could bind DNA.[i] In other words, Silicon can support life.
At this time in history, we are evolving very rapidly as a human species. The evolution of our species, the Homo sapien, is a quantum leap to an immortal species with 48 chromosomes that have 12 physical strands of DNA and 10 etheric strands of DNA. Our three-dimensional biology is being alchemically shifted from Carbon-based matter into that of multi-dimensional Silicon Crystal.
When a log of wood is placed in a fire, it burns down until all that remains is the Carbon element. But if a diamond is placed in a fire, its structure is retained. So all of our cells must be transformed from Carbon to Silicon Crystal so that we can withstand the tremendous amount of Light that will be streaming into the planet from the Central Suns at the end of 2012.
Internally, all our cells are being changed from an organic structure to a Crystallinestructure, the perfect prism through which Light can pass for illumination. Our Crystalline Light bodies will then convert that sunlight directly into electricity. This is what will power us. We will require sunlight – not food. Our Light bodies will be powered by Liquid Light. Mono-Crystalline Silicon will be the receiver and it will work in conjunction with the elements gold, palladium and titanium.[ii]
Europe considers “pursuing dispute settlement” against producers
Strategic resources are carefully protected by countries owning them. Bolivia still has 50,000 metric tons of pure silver in Cerro Rico, Potosi. This is the same amount extracted by the Spaniards during colonial times in that place. Bolivia’s strategy is to keep this vast richness for the uncertain future, when fiat money might collapse. A similar strategy was adopted by the USA with respect to its oil. The USA has the 13th largest oil reserves in the world; yet it is the world’s largest oil importer, purchasing more oil than the entire European Union, which rates only 23rd in reserves. This assures that the USA will improve its competitiveness in this market. Yet, in odd cases, ownership of strategic resources may become a liability. Apparently this is the case with rare earth minerals in China; this country exhibits an odd behavior towards one of its most unique resources. A new study by the European Commission hints that China’s peculiar reaction may be an early response to yet another Western attempt to colonize and control strategic resources. Unsurprisingly, even Israel is involved.
Rare earth elements are not especially scarce on Earth; the problem is that they are dispersed and thus difficult to extract. Rich deposits are rare, thus their name. These seventeen elements were used until recently only in esoteric applications; if you didn’t need special types of superconductors, lasers, or nuclear devices you were unlikely to even hear their names. Yet, in recent years they have become increasingly used, especially in thin, bright-color screens and computer memories. Since 1984, China is the world’s largest supplier of rare earth elements; it is the only supplier of the heavier ones, including dysprosium. The 2010 Critical Materials Strategy Report by the U.S. Department of Energy identified this element as most critical in terms of import reliance. The vast majority of Chinese production originates in Bayan Obo, Inner Mongolia. One last datum; China doesn’t own the largest reserves of rare earth minerals. Is it committing commercial suicide?
Bayan Obo, Inner Mongolia | in 2012, the largest source of rare earth minerals
China vs. the World
Roughly until 1950, Brazil and India led the world supply of rare earth elements. South Africa took over then, only to be replaced by the USA in the mid-sixties. Since the 1980’s the USA production is in decline despite this country having discovered new deposits of this rare goods. Despite having been initially discovered in Sweden, Europe doesn’t produce any significant quantities. Japan owns large quantities in the form of old electronic products; nowadays it is recycling them at a very slow pace, so that it develops the technologies without flooding the market.
Safe to say most Washingtonians had never heard of a “derecho” before June 29, when one of these speedy and destructive windstorms ploughed through the capital, leaving behind dead bodies and battered homes and more than a million households without power. Now the storm is over, and one can expect this obscure meteorological term to pass just as swiftly into everyday speech. Exotic, vaguely menacing, and evoking senseless, abrupt calamity, “derecho” is an especially apt description of America in the age of Obama.
Like the homeowners in Fairfax County, Va., picking up felled tree branches and putting in insurance claims, Americans across the country are still recovering from the Obama derecho that struck the nation from 2009 to 2010. The damage from that whirlwind has been ugly. The cost has been enormous. And another one may form at any moment.
A spectacular confluence of events swept Obama into office. Seven years of war,almost a year of recession, and seven weeks of financial crisis pulled down the incumbent president’s approval rating on Election Day 2008 to an atrocious 25 percent. Obama’s opponent was a war hero and a courageous statesman who nevertheless seemed rather anachronistic, not to mention confused at the bewildering and frightening economic situation.
Obama, on the other hand, had a smooth and graceful and likeable character that appealed to America’s best hopes and dreams of racial and partisan conciliation. His running mate was a dolt, but a familiar one. They promised a new tone in Washington, sound economic management, lower health care premiums, cutting the federal deficit in half, and an end to the war in Iraq. This was the winning ticket, 53 percent to 46 percent.
The economic and legal and political arrangements that had led to two decades of expansion were being re-written hastily and unthinkingly. A deluge of taxes and spending and regulations was let loose, with the stated aim of transforming the base of a system that had produced the most prosperous civilization in history. It turned out that when Obama spoke of putting America on “a new foundation,” he meant it.

Rio+20’s expensive wish list
$1,325 per American family for U.N. bureaucrats
By Paul Driessen and Duggan Flanakin
The NGO Major Group Organizing Partners have finalized their key document for the Rio+20 Summit. “The Future We Want” outlines the common vision for “sustainable development” throughout the planet sought by those nongovernmental organizations – mostly social and environmental activist groups. There are many noble sentiments in its 283 statements. There also is much that raises serious concerns. “Sustainable,” “sustainability” and “sustainable development” appear in the text an astounding 390 times. Like “abracadabra,” these amorphous words are supposed to transform even corrupt societies into Gardens of Eden under United Nations auspices. They will use less, pollute less, be sustainable, get along and save species and the entire planet from their worst enemy: human beings.
The affirmations, resolutions and guidelines are fascinating, but the funding mechanism is even more eye-opening. Results of the U.N. conference in Rio de Janeiro, which concluded Friday, calls for annual “donations” from the European Union and Annex II (Kyoto Protocol) countries amounting to 0.7 percent of their gross national product (GNP). With the combined GNP of contributing nations totaling about $45 trillion in 2010, the transfers would add up to $315 billion per year, or $3.2 trillion per decade.
President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had previously committed the United States to provide $105 billion annually, based on our $15 trillion GNP. World Bank data for 2010 put U.S. per capita GNP at $47,340 – meaning each American family of four would pay $1,325 a year. That may seem like chump change compared to Obamacare or the Obama stimulus. But over a decade, U.S. citizens would be required to contribute well over $1 trillion to U.N. sustainability schemes.
To oversee this unprecedented wealth transfer to U.N. bureaucrats and NGO activists, architects of “The FutureWeWant” would establish “an intergovernmental process” to assess financial needs; consider the effectiveness, consistency and synergies of existing instruments and frameworks; evaluate additional initiatives; and prepare reports on financing strategies. Implementation of this grand scheme would be handled by an intergovernmental committee of 30 “experts” who would be accountable to no one, except perhaps the U.N. secretary-general.
The document reassuringly suggests that “aid architecture has significantly changed in the current decade,” and “fighting corruption and illicit financial flows [has become] a priority.” Diogenes would search in vain for evidence of this.
Indeed, the very idea of still more aid must be questioned. “Has more than $1 trillion in development assistance over the last several decades made African people better off?” economist Dambisa Moyo asks in her book, “Dead Aid.” Her answer is an emphatic no.
On June 25, President Barack Obama issued a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and to the President of the Senate stating that under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, he was declaring aNational Emergency due to actions incurred with Russia, and the Russian Federation. The submitted letter provides a declaration to Congress of the President signing Executive Order (E.O.) 13159, and its immediate implementation.
Under this National Emergency and Executive Order, the United States is seizing assets and property owned or managed by the Russian Federation relating to nuclear items and programs tied to Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU).
Pursuant to section 204(b) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), 50 U.S.C. 1703(b), I hereby report that I have exercised my authority to declare a national emergency to deal with the threat posed to the United States by the risk of nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation in the Russian Federation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material.
The United States and the Russian Federation had entered into a series of agreements that provide for the conversion of highly enriched uranium (HEU) extracted from Russian nuclear weapons into low enriched uranium (LEU) for use in commercial nuclear reactors. There were concerns that payments due to the Russian Federation under these agreements may be subject to attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process, in the United States, which could put implementation of such agreements at risk. In Executive Order 13159, the President therefore ordered blocked all property and interests in property of the Government of the Russian Federation directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements so that it would be protected from the threat of attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process. - White House.gov
The ramifications of this Executive Order, along with portions that remain classified from the public, have vast consequences for the American people. Earlier this year, President Obama updated and signed several Executive Orders that deal with the complete control and confiscation of U.S. assets, infrastructure, and manpower in the case of a declared National Emergency. As of yesterday, that National Emergency has been invoked, opening the door for any number of policies to be enacted by the President going forward.
Additionally, this action against Russia and the Russian Federation could have massive consequences for America in regards to foreign policy, and even a potential act of warshould Russia see fit to perceive Obama’s actions as such. With NATO and Russia both rattling sabers in the region of Syria, the possible threat of a global conflict increased with this new asset confiscation order.
Events in the Middle East, along with regime changes in Egypt, Libya, and a number of Arab states, are engulfing Russia, Europe, and the United States into a potential global conflict that could quickly grow into something not seen in 68 years. With President Obama declaring a state of National Emergency, and imposing a new asset seizure on properties owned or controlled by the Russian Federation, the ramifications for war on several fronts, along with the potential of liberties and freedoms lost to the American people has increased to dangerous levels.
What might be the final major U.S. offensive of the Afghanistan war has begun, according to the war’s day-to-day commander. Its purpose is a bit harder to grasp.
Lt. Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the outgoing operational commander in Afghanistan, said that US and Afghan troops recently began a push in the eastern province of Ghazni to reduce the potency of the insurgency in an area neglected by the 2010 troop surge.
“In some areas there in the east, south of Kabul, we needed to insert greater combat power, and we’ve needed to do that for quite some time,” Scaparotti told Pentagon reporters via videoconference, contradicting remarks made by the general in charge of east Afghanistan last year. Led by an additional brigade from the 82nd Airborne, the offensive will last through “the current fighting season,” he said — even as about 20,000 US forces withdraw by October, weeks before the fighting season ends.
Scaparrotti declined to provide details on how many forces make up what he described as “greater combat power”; where it goes beyond or outside of Ghazni; and said he preferred not discuss even the “intent” of the operations publicly. He also said not to think of it as the “last” major US offensive of the Afghanistan war. But it follows a recent pattern as NATO nears its 2014 deadline for turning Afghan security to its Afghan proteges: US and Afghan troops will clear areas in the east that the Afghans will be tasked with holding.
All Scaparrotti offered was that US forces were ”now undertaking operations to secure areas in Ghazni and areas surrounding Ghazni that we’ve needed to do for some time, and we’re also working very hard with our Afghan partners to then gain in strength and to hold those areas once these operations are done.”
The military has hardly made a secret of its desire for one last major push into eastern Afghanistan. The Obama administration has hardly made a secret of its desire not to replicate the grueling troop surge, which focused on the south, in eastern Afghanistan. Last week, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters that another push into the east would be critical to eroding the power of the Haqqani Network, one of the most lethal components of the Afghan insurgency.
“We’ve got to get [eastern Afghanistan] and the Haqqani influence reduced in order to meet our timelines for the transition that we’re moving toward and — at the end of ’14,” Dempsey said.
Scaparrotti, whose tour in Afghanistan ends Tuesday, diminished expectations for the offensive. He spoke about “future complementary operations” with the Pakistanis as little more than a hypothetical, rather than a partnered effort to squeeze the Haqqani network on both sides of the border. And Scaparrotti said he was optimistic that NATO would meet the 2014 timetable seemingly regardless of what happens in eastern Afghanistan.
The Haqqani Network is considered responsible for the recent wave of attacks on Kabul, although Scaparrotti said the offensive is focused “on the insurgency in a broad way,” not just on the Haqqanis. But still, Scaparrotti said that Ghazni is the current heart of the effort, even though that’s not a province the Haqqani Network evidently values.
According to the general, the Haqqanis want to defend three other provinces — what is “traditionally their area of operation: Khost, Paktia, and Paktika.”
So what could well be the final major US campaign in Afghanistan doesn’t initially target the terrain that its adversary most wants. It won’t have the same access to air power that the effort to take Helmand and Kandahar enjoyed. It won’t have complementary effort on the border by the Pakistanis to deny insurgent safe havens. And whatever happens won’t change the timetable for handing over Afghanistan to the Afghans. No wonder the military isn’t exactly playing up the fight for eastern Afghanistan.
