The Dissident Round Up Is Still Inevitable
To my great surprise, the Boston Marathon bombing hasn't been pinned on some anti-government, born and bred whitey. But that doesn't mean the country isn't still on the march towards comic book police state totalitarianism.
That bipedal lizard Lindsey Graham has been waiting for something just like this. He seems to want to make an example of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who happens to be an American citizen. Graham doesn't want Tsarnaev to get his Miranda rights and be allowed to remain silent. This is an "enemy combatant" on Graham's global battlefield which most decidedly includes the "homeland".
Of course Obama has already set the stage for actually killing Americans without due process with NDAA 2011. In the end monsters like Obama and Graham are just fulfilling their role in history. If it weren't these particular sociopaths, it would be some other inhuman politicians declaring a permanent state of war as the empire chugs along.
Having taken up the torch of empire, America can't stop now. It has made itself the world cop who will ever be a target for "terrorists". It must rescind the liberties that made it such a unique, dynamic haven for both wealth creation and happiness. Terrorist attack by terrorist attack, it must chip away at its old reputation as a bastion of freedom to reveal the reality of the imperious police state that has perhaps always been lurking beneath.
So despite the proximity to tax time, the date of the Waco massacre and the so-called retaliation of Oklahoma City, it looks like the Boston Marathon bombing will be chalked up to Islamic extremism. Don't breathe too easy yet, however. Eventually there will be an act of "terrorism" that will lead the US government to remove all vestiges of privacy from US soil and to round up any dissidents who might be a "potential threat". They will do this with the complete approval of the majority of the citizenry.
I help write and manage a little newsletter called TDV Homegrown about making the best of life in the encroaching police state. But I must be honest with my readership and remind them that the best strategy is to have an exit plan. This isn't the end of the world -- in fact the future looks increasingly brighter in the non-Western world -- but the US has already crossed the Rubicon and is in free fall descent. The majority of the sheep here will be perfectly fine with that, paying whatever tax tribute their masters demand and watching what they say or write in order to stay out of trouble. If you're somebody who simply can't live like that, then start doing everything in your power to finance your escape.
Editor, The Dollar Vigilante
Well, one Chechen is dead and another is about to be tortured. Boston was in lockdown for a day. Military, FBI, and Boston PD roamed the streets full armed. Bullets were flying in residential areas. Still don't think we're headed for a police state?
Here’s what we wrote about this week…
MONDAY, April 15
Gary Gibson on
theft tax season.
“If Americans are so enamored with paying taxes and "paying their fair share", then they should be happier than ever in the age of the Internet and social media. Not only does the IRS consider ALL supposedly private electronic communications like email and cloud information within their right to search, but they will also be spying on your Facebook and Twitter accounts to see if you aren't reporting every possible taxable action.”
TUESDAY, April 16
Jim Karger may be a terrorist…are you?
"I have never thought of myself as a terrorist.
But, according to the USSA, based on my stated beliefs, I might just be dangerous, or at least someone to keep an eye on.
Because I consider myself a sovereign citizen, which means nothing more than I have never consented to being ruled by others, whether it be other individuals or by a gang of individuals calling themselves a "government." I have never assented to relinquish my individual liberties at the altar of democracy, a variant of communism where a majority is deemed right even when they are wrong.”
WEDNESDAY, April 17
Justin O’Connell updates us on the Bitcoin.
“For many of our TDV Newsletter readers, who seek a Perpetual Traveler lifestyle, storing tangible wealth throughout the world remains problematic.
For this reason and others, the Bitcoin price does not matter, just as it doesn't really matter with the gold and silver markets. As I write this, silver is below $24, yet US wholesale distributors CNT and Dillon Gage are out of the metal. Also, as I write this, despite the most massive volume ever in Bitcoin, virtually all on the sell-side, Bitcoin holds $50.”
THURSDAY, April 18
Jeff Berwick on gold, silver, and Bitcoins.
"The April monthly issue of TDV comes at a most convenient time this month. The Big Picture is meant to be my monthly overview of where we are at with The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) and all the symptoms of TEOTMSAWKI that are affecting the world.
And there have been plenty of symptoms in the last week most specifically in gold and Bitcoin. Here is The Dollar Vigilante take on how TEOTMSAWKI is affecting the precious metals and Bitcoin market."
FRIDAY, April 19
In this week’s Feedback Friday: Bitcoins, escaping the USSA, and more.
