How Sovereign is Europe? Washington has Murdered Privacy Rights at Home And Abroad

by Paul Craig Roberts
Published: Mar. 22, 2010 – Global Research

In the Swiss newspaper Zeit Fragen, Professor Dr. Eberhard Hamer from Germany asks, “How Sovereign is Europe?”

He examines the issue and concludes that Europe has little, if any, sovereignty.

Professor Hamer writes that the sovereign rights of Europeans as citizens of nation states were dissolved with the coming into force of the Lisbon Treaty on Dec. 1, 2009. The rights of the people have been conveyed to a political commissariat in Brussels. The French, Germans, Belgians, Spanish, British, Irish, Italians, Greeks, and so forth, now have “European citizenship whatever this may be.”

The result of aggregating nations is to reduce the political participation of people. The authority of parliaments and local councils has been impaired. Power is now concentrated in new hierarchical structures within the European Union. European citizenship means indirect and weak participation by people. Self-rule has given way to authoritarian rule from top to bottom.

Israeli mind-scanner may take over US airports

Jan. 28, 2010 – Press TV

As part of stringent measures to beef up airport security, US authorities may use an Israeli-made mind-reading scanner that allegedly predicts whether a passenger is a potential threat or not.

The Transportation and Safety Administration (TSA) and the Homeland Security are considering the installment of a controversial mind-reading system, that was recently developed by the Israeli-based WeCU Technologies, in all American airports, AP reported on Thursday.

The State of the Nation: I am afraid

“As I look at America today, I am not afraid to say that I am afraid.” – Bertram Gross, Friendly Fas­cism: The New Face of Power in America

by John W. White­head
Published: Jan. 27, 2010 – The August Forecast

Omi­nous devel­op­ments in America have been a long time coming, in part pre­cip­i­tated by “we the people” – a cit­i­zenry that has been asleep at the wheel for too long. And while there have been wake-up calls, we have failed to heed the warnings.

Just con­sider the state of our nation:

We’re encased in what some are calling an elec­tronic con­cen­tra­tion camp. The gov­ern­ment con­tinues to amass data files on more and more Amer­i­cans. Every­where we go, we are watched: at the banks, at the gro­cery store, at the mall, crossing the street. This loss of pri­vacy is symp­to­matic of the growing sur­veil­lance being car­ried out on average Amer­i­cans. Such sur­veil­lance grad­u­ally poi­sons the soul of a nation, trans­forming us from one in which we’re pre­sumed inno­cent until proven guilty to one in which everyone is a sus­pect and pre­sumed guilty. Thus, the ques­tion that must be asked is: can freedom in the United States flourish in an age when the phys­ical move­ments, indi­vidual pur­chases, con­ver­sa­tions and meet­ings of every cit­izen are under con­stant sur­veil­lance by pri­vate com­pa­nies and gov­ern­ment agencies?

FBI ‘fabricated terror emergencies to get phone records’

Jan. 19, 2010 – Guardian

The US justice department is preparing a report which concludes that the FBI repeatedly broke the law by invoking terrorism emergencies that did not exist to obtain more than 2,000 telephone call records over four years from 2002, including those of journalists on US newspapers, according to emails obtained by the Washington Post.

The bureau also issued authorisations for the seizure of records after the fact, in order to justify unwarranted seizures.

The Surveillance Society: Trading Freedom For The Illusion Of Safety (With Videos)

by Giordano Bruno
Published: Jan. 18, 2010 – Neithercorp Press

Governments, regardless of their political structure or historical background, have always striven to not only control information, but also to gather it from the people by covert means. Often, this secretive observation of the citizenry escalates into a completely open and full-fledged surveillance state. The U.S. in particular stands on a precarious edge: the line between abhorring invasion of privacy, and embracing invasion of privacy as necessary for the “greater good.” Many people assume that such a mindset is forced on the masses by the elite, that strength of arms is somehow required to make them accept the conditions of a police state, but this is not always so. It is very difficult for governments, despite any technological developments or resources they may have, to enforce and maintain a fascistic political construct. In order to retain control, they must build a “Surveillance Culture;” a society in which the people watch each other, and where individuals censor themselves instead of being censored by the authorities. In the end, a police state cannot exist without the help of the people it means to dominate. By spying on each other, we destroy ourselves.

Google’s Deep CIA Connections

by Eric Sommer
Published: Jan. 14, 2010 – Pravda.ru

The western media is currently full of articles on Google’s ‘threat to quit China’ over internet censorship issues, and the company’s ‘suspicion’ that the Chinese government was behind attempts to ‘break-in’ to several Google email accounts used by ‘Chinese dissidents’.

However, the media has almost completely failed to report that Google’s surface concern over ‘human rights’ in China is belied by its their deep involvement with some of the worst human rights abuses on the planet:

Google is, in fact, is a key participant in U.S. military and CIA intelligence operations involving torture; subversion of foreign governments; illegal wars of aggression; and military occupations of countries which have never attacked the U.S. and which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

Insouciant Americans

by Paul Craig Roberts
Published: Jan. 12, 2010 – Information Clearing House

The Underwear Bomber case indicates that whoever is behind these bomb scares is laughing at our gullibility.

How realistic is it that al-Qaida, an organization that allegedly pulled off the most fantastic terror attack in world history, would in these days of heightened security choose for an attack on an airliner a person who is the most conspicuous of all? Umar Farouk Mutallab had a one-way ticket, no luggage, no passport, and his father, reportedly a CIA and Mossad asset, had reported him to the CIA and Mossad. Does anyone really believe that al-Qaida would choose as an airliner bomber a person waving every red flag imaginable?

Al Qaeda – The Invented Hydra for the New World Order´s False Flag Operations

by Anders
Published: Jan. 05, 2010 – Euro-med.dk

Summary: Everything seems to suggest that 9/11  was an inside job, an excuse to initiate Brzezinski’s “Grand Chess-board” – military operations in Central Asia in order to submit it to the New World Order World Government. More and more people think so – and are therefore skeptical when new “terrorist attacks” occur. An attempt by a Nigerian in a plane from Amsterdam to Detroit to detonate a bomb triggered suspicions of a false flag action by U.S. government in order to create the right panic to renew the unconstitutional Patriot Act in Congress in February. There is also suspicion that the USA has plans to deploy its military in Yemen, where the terrorist is said to have had his insufficient education. Mr. Obama and Gordon Brown claim that Yemen is haunted by Al-Qaeda fighters who have fled Afghanistan and Pakistan and are now making the world unsafe from Yemen. There will probably just ensue some bombing and a police expeditionary force, as the U.S. cannot cope with a new front. Besides, A  Somali Shabab/”Al-Qaida” sympathizer in Denmark has tried to collect the 1 mio. dollar reward and a ticket to Allah´s Paradise for killing a Muhammad-cartoonist.
On the basis of the Nigerian´s failure which occurred under very strange circumstances, the United States, Britain and Spain have now closed their embassies in Yemen for fear of Al-Quaida – and Obama promises to defuse these hateful warriors – an echo of President Bush in 2001.
But the question is whether Al-Qaeda is anything more than a convenient scapegoat and an excuse for the New World Order with the U.S. and Britain at the forefront to be used for promoting their policies. A BBC study concludes that Al-Qaeda never existed, and the very Council on Foreign Relation’s Magazine, “Foreign Affairs”, states that Al-Qaeda consists of only 200 frightened warriors who try to hide in Pakistan’s mountains. Al-Quaida has not been able to establish any network in the U.S. and the FBI has not found a single Al-Quaida cell nor seen just one single Al-Quaida attack in the entire world! A look back at 9/11 also shows strange situations. There is several credible evidence that the “hijackers” are alive and well-off after 11 Sept! There is only 1 person convicted for 9/11 involvement in the U.S. – and that happened on false evidence and because of the man’s aggressive threats. In other cases, there have been confessions after up to 183 waterboardings in a month – but no convictions, only Guantanamo! A judge ruled that the CIA and other government agencies lied with regard to 9/11 “evidence”
So,everything suggests that “Al-Quaida” has just been conveniently invented by the U.S.

150 more full-body scanners to go in U.S. airports

Dec. 31, 2009 – Washington — One hundred and fifty new full-body scanning machines are set to be placed in airports across the United States as federal authorities work to close security loopholes exposed by the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a U.S.-bound airliner.

The Transportation Security Administration ordered the scanners before the bombing attempt for up to $170,000 apiece. Plans are also in place to purchase an additional 300 units by 2012, TSA officials said.

Forty body scanners are currently in use at 19 U.S. airports. Use of the technology — considered overly invasive by critics — is optional, according to the TSA Web site. Passengers who opt out of the screening receive an alternate form of checking, which includes a pat-down procedure.

Intel wants a chip implant in your brain

Published: Nov. 25, 2009 – Red Ice Creations

Computer chip maker Intel wants to implant a brain-sensing chip directly into the brains of its customers to allow them to operate computers and other devices without moving a muscle.

Intel believes its customers would be willing to have a chip implanted in their brains so they could operate computers without the need for a keyboard or mouse using thoughts alone. The implant could also be used to operate devices such as cell phones, TVs and DVDs.

Internet Under Siege

by Philip Giraldi
Published: Nov. 19, 2009 – Antiwar.com

It is ironic that President Barack Obama would travel to China and speak against government control over the internet. If the American Department of Homeland Security has its way new cybersecurity laws will enable Obama’s administration to take control of the internet in the event of a national crisis. How that national crisis might be defined would be up to the White House but there have been some precedents that suggest that the response would hardly be respectful of the Bill of Rights.

Many countries already monitor and censor the internet on a regular basis, forbidding access to numerous sites that they consider to be subversive. During recent unrest, the governments of both Iran and China effectively shut down the internet by taking control of or blocking servers. Combined with switching off of cell phone transmitters, the steps proved effective in isolating dissidents. Could it happen here? Undoubtedly. Once the laws are in place a terrorist incident or something that could be plausibly described in those terms would be all that is needed to have government officials issue the order to bring the internet to a halt.

CODED MICROCHIPS implanted in every person in the country would tie all of us into a master computer that could track anyone down at any moment, and plans for such a system are already under way whether you like it or not!

The secret scheme is being touted as a service for the protection of the people by high government officials, but some insiders who object to the move say it’s just another way for Big Brother to control its subjects.

Slavery or Freedom?

If history is anything to go by, just three per cent of us taking decisive action will be enough to stop dictatorship being established in Europe and the USA and resurrect the real democracy

by Jane Burgermeister
Published: Oct. 10, 2009 – The Flu Case

We have reached a fork in the road, a crossroads, and the latest film by Alex Jones, The Fall of the Republic, makes our choices clear.

Whether we live in the USA or Europe, we are watching the accelerating speed with which republics and democratic states are being transformed into dictatorships.

Regional dictatorships are emerging in the form of the North American Union and the European Union.

These totalitarian systems will, in turn, be subsumed under a single global dictatorship controlled by the WHO, the UN and the IMF. Behind the UN complex is a corporate crime syndicate that uses these bodies as vehicles for their grab for world domination, also by declaring a pandemic emergency which has given WHO and the UN extraordinary powers over the national governments around the world, including health services and police services.

Microchip Implants, Mind Control, and Cybernetics

by Rauni Kilde
Published: Dec. 06, 2000 – Conspiracy Archive

In 1948 Norbert Weiner published a book, Cybernetics, defined as a neurological communication and control theory already in use in small circles at that time. Yoneji Masuda, “Father of the Information Society,” stated his concern in 1980 that our liberty is threatened Orwellian-style by cybernetic technology totally unknown to most people. This technology links the brains of people via implanted microchips to satellites controlled by ground-based supercomputers.

The first brain implants were surgically inserted in 1974 in the state of Ohio, USA and also in Stockholm, Sweden. Brain electrodes were inserted into the skulls of babies in 1946 without the knowledge of their parents. In the 1950s and 60s, electrical implants were inserted into the brains of animals and humans, especially in the U.S., during research into behavior modification, and brain and body functioning. Mind control (MC) methods were used in attempts to change human behavior and attitudes. Influencing brain functions became an important goal of military and intelligence services.
