“…the country’s intelligence establishment seems to be salivating at the thought of treating fellow Americans like ISIS” — Tucker Carlson
“they’re talking about it as a second war on terror and that first war on terror no matter what your views were originally at the beginning of 9-11 ended up eroding not civil liberties just elsewhere but here at home as well one that is born by name of being a domestic war and terror designed to essentially criminalize any oppositional ideology to the ruling class.
There is literally nothing that could be more dangerous…..” — Glenn Greenwald
“Hey guys, we’re here at the inauguration. It’s the most bizarre scene you ever saw in your life”
There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
No doubt about it: the coup d’etat was successful. That January 6 attempt by so-called insurrectionists to overturn the election results was not the real coup, however. Those who answered President Trump’s call to march on the Capitol were merely the fall guys, manipulated into creating the perfect crisis for the Deep State—a.k.a. the Police State a.k.a. the Military Industrial Complex a.k.a. the Techno-Corporate State a.k.a. the Surveillance State—to swoop in and take control.
It took no time at all for the switch to be thrown and the nation’s capital to be placed under a military lockdown, online speech forums restricted, and individuals with subversive or controversial viewpoints ferreted out, investigated, shamed and/or shunned.
This new order didn’t emerge into being this week, or this month, or even this year, however.
Indeed, the real coup happened when our government “of the people, by the people, for the people” was overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic, techno-corporate state that is in cahoots with a government “of the rich, by the elite, for the corporations.”- John W. Whitehead
GRAY STATE SYNOPSIS
“Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance — these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.”
It was Clyburn’s endorsement of Biden in the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary that revived his candidacy and catapulted him back to front-runner status following dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Biden’s ascent to the nomination is largely credited to his dominating performance in South Carolina.
Anyone who was spotted at the Capitol on Jan. 6, inside or outside the building, is now being pursued for prosecution, even as Trump and his family sail off into the Florida sunset unscathed.
Many are demanding answers as to why Trump left his followers holding the bag that day, especially since people are losing their jobs and careers due to the spectacle.
For Americans, this moment is now…
“Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven’t done (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we did nothing) . . . You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.” ~ A German professor describing the coming of fascism in They Thought They Were Free by Milton Mayer
“We’ll show these fascists what a couple of hillbillies can do.” – Woody Guthrie
