and everything is going according to plan?
From my post “History Class (Circa 2100)“:
- Obama White House asks Americans to turn in their fellow citizen for dissenting with the administration‘s policies. Also known as: “flag the fishy,” “McCarthy-style ‘fish’ hunts,” “a ridiculous and frightening request that marries the paranoia of Nixon with the fascism of Hitler.”
- The TSA is granted unprecedented and unConstitutional power to search innocent citizens without reasonable suspicion, based solely on the purchase of an airline ticket (remember, Class, this was before all airlines were seized by the federal government). Also known as: “Tyrannical Sexual Assault..”
- The FCC is granted unprecedented power to censor and control the internet (remember, Class, the head of the FCC publicly stated that one of the goals of this “net neutrality” is to “control how information gets filtered and funneled to the American people”).
- Federal government seizes millions of acres of land. Also know as: “stealth land grabs”
- Federal government amasses unprecedented power and control over national healthcare, college loans, banks, auto companies.
- Federal government clamps down on individual right to garden (fresh fruits and vegetables) and on farmers’ markets.
- Obama administration moves for internet “kill” switch and a means of blocking private cell phones.
- Picking up on his campaign promise to develop a civilian security force that is just as well-trained and just as well-funded as the United States military, Obama makes several moves: TSA expansion of power (including to train, bus, and metro stations–as well as sporting and other public events); moving the national guard off the southern borders; and pushed for the Universal National Services Act (along the lines of Obama’s youth camps and “mandatory volunteerism.”).
- Obama administration sends $60 billion in arms to Muslim state Saudi Arabia while Congress is in recess.
- TSA and DHS memos mandate that anyone “opting out” of TSA invasive screening measures and anyone who is conservative should be regarded as potential terrorists and “domestic extremists.“
- Department of Justice installs new policy of “racial justice” that dictates that no crime committed by a black person upon a white person will be prosecuted.
- Administration repeatedly attacks Fox News, including attempting to shut them out of the White House Press Pool.
- Obama administration turns publicly-funded National Endowment for the Arts into a propaganda arm of the White House.
- Administration explores electricity “kill switches” to private homes.
- Obama White House pushes for the “greening of America.”
- Government-sponsored, publicly-funded “news” agencies begin with proposal of the United States Department of Labor “News” Agency.
- Obama administration turns to the U. N. for a small arms treaty that would disarm law-abiding citizens in the U. S.
