Detention for Dissension?

Written by atuuschaaw Thursday, 23 February 2006

The consolidation of power within the executive branch of the U.S. government continues and as the regime continues to strengthen, our human rights and freedoms continue to diminish. The imbalance created by this executive power vacuum, under the advantageous concept of a War on Terror, will eventually prove to be disastrous to social justice and humanity.

David Horowitz warned us back in 2003 that the anti-war activists weren't concerned about peace. Horowitz claimed these people hiding behind the peace movement were actually a Fifth Column communist movement intent on defeated America in it's war on Saddam. Horowitz himself, back in the late sixties and early seventies, was an editor of the radical magazine Ramparts, and he was associated with the New Left. He is now one of the major mothpieces of the neoconservative movement within the government.

On the day after the U.S. military action in Iraq begins, the Fifth Column is preparing to begin its own war at home. The plan is to cause major disruptions, illegal in nature, in cities across the country to disrupt the flow of normal civic life. These actions will tie up Homeland Security forces and create a golden opportunity for domestic terrorists. The Fifth Column left is also planning to invade military bases.

Horowitz now believes and practices in the Straussian philosophy of coercive restraint within our society, and his views and ideas are being picked up by others within the governmental structure of the U.S. Just this month in a Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing, Senator Lindsey Graham stated that the executive administration of Bush and Co. not only has the right, but the duty to pursue Fifth Column movements.

So my friends on the other side, I stand by this president's ability, inherent to being commander in chief, to find out about fifth column movements, and I don't think you need a warrant to do that.

Apparently any concerned citizen who questions the executive branch of our government, no longer is entitled to the Bill of Rights provided them under the Constitution. Our current administration believes a citizen's rights can be ignored as long as the reich labels them as sympathizing or collaborating with the enemy. It's much easier and beneficial for totalitarians to label a person who sympathizes with the victims of the war as a Fifth Columist who are no more than domestic terrorists. It seems apparent, at least in part, that the current neo-reich's eavesdropping techniques were not initiated only for al-Qaeda supporters within our country. It's about the reich's unchained authority to snoop on citizen's e-mails and phone calls under the premise of national security. It's a perfect plan orchestrated by a growing totalitarian regime who are intent on constructing a governmental structure in order to "take us where they want us to go"! Labeling dissidents as Fifth Columnists is an old trick which has been used through by totalitarians throughout history. According to the testimony by Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Tribunal for war crimes, Hitler proposed the reich be modeled after the United States.

"The Fuehrer told me then that the simplest thing to do would be to take as example the United States of America, where the head of the state is at the same time also the head of the government. Thus following the example of the United States, we combined the position of the head of the state with the head of the government, and he called himself Fuehrer of the German people and Reich Chancellor of the German Reich." (Robert E.Conot, "Justice at Nuremberg", Harper &Row, New York, 1983, p. 333)

The similarity between Hitler's idea of ruling and our current administration's increase in executive powers is uncanny and cannot be ignored. The comparison is just too easy. The unitary executive theory makes our president untouchable no matter what he does and the use of the signing statement by our president places him above the law of the land. We can today read from the diary of Hitler's sidekick and head of propaganda Joeseph Goebbels, and overlay his words with what we see in our country today.

"The struggle is a light one now as we are able to employ all the means of the state. Radio and press are at our disposal."

So are our dissenters destined to become enemies of the state, or as they are being called now, Fifth Columnists? This is how power is consolidated within the state. By creating enemies of the state, totalitarians can pool their power within their tight circle of supporters and silence dissent within their regime. Through this creation of enemies of the state, administrations can use border-line legal acts to create a police state. Such was the case in Germany with the use of the Reichstag Fire Decree to place fear within the people concerning terrorists and also with the initiation of the Enabling Acts, in which the reich was granted the right to bypass due process of suspected Fifth Columnists. This Act was used to strip people of their rights, break trade unions, and to make rival parties illegal. All done legally, although questionably, to increase power in the Nazi regime. Like I said before, it's just too easy to link the resemblance of the Bush and Hitler regimes. Perhaps too easy!

Contracts have been awarded to Halliburton's subsidary KBR to build detention camps within the U.S., supposedly as part of a plan for the removal of certain aliens and potential terrorists. According to Peter Dale Scott, these detention camps are part of a longer-term Homeland Security plan titled Operation Endgame. Operation Endgame was authorized in 2003 as an addition to the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798. which has been used through history to silence free speech and to violate human rights. The Patriot Act as written defines terrorism as acts intended to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion. With this broad definition, basically anyone who does not adhere to the reich's views or directions, could be labeled as Fifth Columnists and could see the inside of one of these detention camps.

On Feb. 17 of this year, in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld spoke of the harm being done to the country's security, not just by the enemy, but also by what he called "news informers" who needed to be combated in "a contest of wills." Two days earlier, citing speeches critical of Bush by Al Gore, John Kerry, and Howard Dean, conservative columnist Ben Shapiro called for "legislation to prosecute such sedition."

All of these plans we now see, along with other related programs, are said to be part of a Continuity of Government Plan which has been in design since Reagan was in office. Among the designers of the COG plan back in the 80's were Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Oliver North. Just a coincidence? Yeah, I'm sure that's all it is. And the plan proposed by Oliver North and his associates back in the 80's entitled Rex 84, which was to test the governments ability to detain large numbers of American citizens in case of massive civil unrest, is also just a coincidence. Under Homeland Security restructuring, civil missions should be based on the Operation Garden Plot model for civil unrest. We have been under the Bush implemented COG ever since the planes crashed into the World Trade Center.

I don't consider myself an honest-to-goodness conspiracy theorist. But when the facts are there for us all to see, and history can be used as a measuring stick of sorts to observe where we currently find ourselves, I cannot help but throw my two cents into the mix. And I suppose writing material such as this could make me an enemy of the state within the regime's eyes, and sometime in the future if the citizens of the U.S. don't wake up, summer camp could begin to have a whole new meaning and may even last throughout the entire year!
