Military coup in Thailand = Within days democracy was closed down = Declared martial law + Sent armed soldiers into residential areas + Took over radio-TV stations + Issued press restrictions + Tightened limits on travel + Took activists into custody = FORMULA FOLLOWED = Blueprint for dictatorship used again and again = Bloody effective terrifying ways.

It is very difficult and arduous to create and sustain a democracy – but history shows closing one down is much simpler following 10 simple steps.

USA = Slowly following these 10 steps today to an unimaginable dictatorship in America = We scarcely recognise the checks and balances that the founders put in place, are being systematically dismantled = Setting up a department of “homeland” security – Germany (1930- 1945) – didn’t raise alarm bells that close down an open society = Danger of American authoritarianism = Fascism potential unfolding in the US.

1. Invoke or Fund a Terrifying Enemy

911 was a State of National Shock = 6 weeks later (Oct 26 2001) the USA Patriot Act passed with everyone scared and NO debate and many had NO time to read it. Panic of a “war footing…global war” against a “global caliphate” intending to “wipe out civilization” = This time there will be no defined end to our loss of FREEDOMS.

2. Create a Gulag

Next step is to create a prison system outside the rule of law = GITMO = Torture + Isolation with no TRIALS or END in sight + BLACK SITES + USA PRISON SYSTEM has HIGHEST BY 7 FOLD over any other country. = Fascist anti-democracy crackdowns like Italy-Germany (1920-1930) + Latin American coups in 1970s = Standard practice for closing down an open society or crushing a pro-democracy uprising = Establishment of military tribunals denying prisoners due process = Mussolini + Stalin +Nazis

3. Develop a Thug Caste

Fascist Leaders Militarize Police to close down an open society = Terrorise and even Murder citizens. Militarized Police are to create FEAR of POLICE THUGS free from PROSECUTION create VIOLENCE in a democracy = USA after 911 = Bonanza for Israeli-American security contractors = Contracts worth $100s of millions for security mercenaries at home and abroad accused of torturing prisoners + Harassing journalists + FIRING at citizens/civilians. After Hurricane Katrina – HOMELAND SECURITY hired and deployed armed private security guards and NOW USES ISRAELI COMPANIES TO GUARD OUR SOUTHERN BORDERS.

4. Set Up an Internal Surveillance System = NSA + CIA + MOSSAD

Like Mussolini + Nazis Secret spies on ordinary people = Convince Americans that they themselves were being watched by wiretap + Internet + phones info = Cast as “national security” but really suppression of speach is GOAL = Docile + Inhibit citizens.

5. Harass Citizens’ Groups

McCain calls Code Pink “low life SCUM” in Senate offices = Spies infiltrate and harass citizens’ groups and even churches that preach Jesus was in favor of peace BUT churches that got Republicans out to vote have been left alone. American Civil Liberties Union reports that thousands of ordinary American anti-war, environmental and other groups have been infiltrated by agents + NSA DATABASES + CIA DATABASES + Equally secret Counterintelligence Field Activity (Cifa) agency gather information about domestic organizations engaged in peaceful political activities under the guise of “potential terrorist threats.”

6. Engage in Arbitrary Detention and Release to Scare People

China arrests and releases same persons many times = “lists” of dissidents and opposition leaders targeted – In airports and by police or Internet Sites. Standard practice of fascist societies that once you are on the list, you can’t get off.

7. Target Key Individuals

FORCE Civil Servants + Artists + Academics to fear job loss if they don’t toe the line. = Joseph Goebbels purged academics + Chile’s Pinochet + Chinese Politburo Punishing students and professors = Finkelstein was PERSECUTED and lost his job because of INSANE ISRAELI PEDOPHILE at HARVARD + BUSH put pressure on regents at state universities to penalize or fire academics critical of his administration + tried to derail the careers of military + state lawyers + US attorneys + Stripped CIA contract worker who said “waterboarding is torture” of their security clearance.

8. Control the Press

USA + WORLD PRESS = OWNED by ISRAELI BILLIONAIRES propagandize and lie to Americans = Italy (1920s) + Germany (1930s) + East Germany (1950s) + Czechoslovakia (1960s) + Latin America dictators (1970s) + China (1980-1990s) = First sign of dictatorship is targeting journalists and Whistleblowes = Threaten + Harass + Imprison + Force to other countries + even MURDERED as 17 were in Israel summer 2014 = US journalists arrests are at an all-time high = Joe Wilson’s Wife was OUTED for his whistleblowing + Manning + Snowden + many others persecuted or prosecuted. = Nothing compares with how US & Israel treating journalists and whistleblowers. Real news is supplanted by FAKED NEWS propaganda and LIES + even FALSE Documents are presented = steady rententless stream of lies polluting the news with false information = Muddying is their GOAL real news with faked news – Americans give up trying to find the truth.

9. Dissent Equals Treason

Any Dissent or Criticism is called “TREASON” when Congress commits TREASON in the OPEN. Dissent is criminalized as is TRUTH and WHISTLEBLOWING = SERIOUS ATTACK ON DEMOCRACY = Stalin’s Soviet Union + NAZIS + all FASCIST REGIMES. Since 2006 the president has the power to call any US citizen an “enemy combatant” = Delegate to ANYONE in the executive branch the right to define “enemy combatant” any way he or she wants and then seize Americans Citizens accordingly = Stalin’s gulag isolation cell = Like GITMO or a BLACK SITE with NO TRIAL and INDEFINITE HOLDING as an “Enemy combatant” = LOOK HOW HOMELAND COORDINATED THE END TO THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT!

10. Suspend the Rule of Law

John Warner Defense Authorization Act gave the president new powers over the national guard in a Presidential DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCY = Enhanced powers NEVER SEEN BEFORE BY THE PRESIDENCY = VIOLATES Posse Comitatus Act – Restrain the federal government from using the military for domestic law enforcement = Encourages a president to declare federal martial law + Violates the very reason the founders set up our system of government = Founders were terrified of exactly this kind of concentration of military power over American people by oppressive executive.

FINALLY = Our experiment in democracy could be closed down by a process of erosion. In the early days, things look normal on the surface; Celebrating holidays + People shopping and going to movies (Berlin 1931) + “dogs go on with their doggy life” + Internet shopping = Quite leisure turns to disaster as hollowness is carved ou from under us and our HUMAN RIGHTS — tearing down the very foundation our Founders Designed to protect us. FASCIST KNOW ALL IT TAKES IS ONE MORE BIG FALSE FLAG TO IMPLEMENT THE “FINAL SOLUTION.” Only a few handfuls of patriots are trying to hold back the tide of tyranny for the rest of us = A small, disparate collection of people to

“…fight the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands … is the definition of tyranny,”

— President James Madison

We still have a CHANCE to stop this EVIL if we collectively stand our ground and fight for our nation taking up the banner the founders asked us to carry.
