    Dr. Paul: Fascism, A Bipartisan Affliction

    Fascism: A Bipartisan Affliction
    by ron paul

    neoconservatives and progressives … both groups, along with most political figures and commentators, embrace fascist ideas and policies.

    Fascism’s distinguishing characteristic is a “mixed economy.” Unlike socialists and communists who seek to abolish private business, fascists are content to let business remain in private hands. Instead, fascists use regulations, mandates, and taxes to control business and run (and ruin) the economy. A fascist system, then, is one where private businesses serve politicians and bureaucrats instead of consumers. Does the modern American economy not fit the definition of fascism?

    Fascism benefits big businesses that can afford the cost of complying with government regulations … Big businesses, which have more political influence then entrepreneurs or small businesses, also significantly benefit from government subsidies. …

    Obamacare is an example of fascism … Obamacare extended government control over health care via mandates, regulations, and subsidies. The most infamous part of Obamacare — the individual mandate — forces individuals to purchase a product from a private industry.

    Modern America’s militaristic foreign policy aimed at policing and perfecting the world is another example of fascism that enjoys strong bipartisan support. Both right-wing neocons and left-wing … claim our supposedly noble goals … these supposed human rights champions defend preemptive war, torture, and presidential kill lists.

    Many politicians supporting a militaristic foreign policy are more concerned with spreading largesse to the military-industrial complex than with spreading democracy. …

    Mass surveillance and limits on personal freedom are additional hallmarks of fascist regimes. … few want to abolish mass surveillance, civil asset forfeiture, police militarization, and other police-state policies … The federal government has even used force to stop people from selling raw milk! Attempts by progressives to silence political opponents are more examples of how … Americans are embracing fascist policies.

    an increase in presidential power. This centralization of power … is one more indication of the fascistic nature of our current regime. …

    today’s neoconned conservatives and progressives both support the use of force to reshape society and the world. This is the defining characteristic not just of fascists, but also of authoritarians. …

    Joachim Hagopian on our Deep State:

    Even those not following the latest evidence of the tyrannical noose tightening around our necks, know something has gone terribly wrong in America. Through NSA whistleblower Edward
    Snowden’s revelations four years ago, we learned that US citizens as well as foreign countries are the most spied upon in human history. But this week’s latest massive WikiLeaks’ release, aka Vault 7… the world is beginning to realize just how far gone our privacy rights are, becoming virtually nonexistent ...

    we’re learning that the Orwellian nightmare of myopic control over us as a national population is far worse than ever imagined. … the CIA, it has extended its technologically invasive beta test control over the most spied upon population ever …

    Americans are not the only victims of deep state cyber aggression. The CIA data dump also reveals that the NSA and CIA have been conducting a large scale covert operation out of the Frankfurt, Germany American Consulate, largest in the world, busily hacking targeted individuals, groups and national entities throughout Europe, the Middle East and China. Granted immunity and top secret identities, individuals comprising deep state America employed in Frankfurt have developed a massive digital hacking arsenal smack dab in the middle of Europe as Empire’s vassal. ...

    In recent years during the Bush-Obama regime, US citizens have witnessed their civil rights … eroded away into complete oblivion. Under the nefarious pretense of national security, ... property rights in the form of our homes, our cars, our cash, and bank account assets under the grossly unlawful civil forfeiture ... US law enf orcement steals more annually from us than the totality of all burglars. …

    Rampant violation of our Fifth Amendment … eminent domain law, where again increasingly our homes are being illegally confiscated by local, state and federal governments. ... the US Supreme Court made the decision granting government the right to steal our property based on land use for “economic development” even by a private developer. ...

    our freedom of movement and travel now being usurped, increasingly US citizens flying from one domestic location to another are being asked to show “their papers,” reminding us how the German populace must have felt under Nazi authoritarian control.

    Increasing military and law enforcement “random” checkpoints ... Microchipped drivers licenses, passports, credit cards as well as backdoor installed GPS monitoring and spying devices in our cell phones … Biometrics like facial and voice recognition and implanted microchips

    But the latest CIA crimes constitute an unprecedented assault allowing deep state to infiltrate and attack us through malware embedded in our iPhones, Android computer applications as well as smart TVs in order to listen in and shockingly violate every last vestige of our decimated privacy.

    Even while Samsung Smart TVs are turned off, the monitoring device is still secretly turned on and eavesdropping on our conversations. … this CIA malware ... can extract usernames, passwords, and Wi-Fi keys expanding invasive access to the victim’s shared network and other connected devices….

    As far back as a half decade ago, then CIA Director retired General David Petraeus was touting ...
    With the rise of the “smart home,” you’d be sending tagged, geo-located data that a spy agency can intercept in real time when you use the lighting app on your phone to adjust your living room’s ambiance.

    ... smart meters, smart phones, smart TVs and a plethora of smart household devices installed in every hopelessly dumbed down American’s home to permit voyeuristic deep state criminals complete invasive access ... virtually nothing escapes totalitarian reach and absolute control anymore. ...

    the massive proliferation of closed circuit TV cameras ... the global deployment of countless surveillance drones … even armed to kill us from both inside and outside our own no longer private homes, ... And thanks to Obama, the alarming precedent’s been set for a US president to engage in extrajudicial killing of his own citizens on or off American soil. ...

    With the simultaneous breaking news story that Obama was on the warpath against truth telling journalists as well, directing the FBI to monitor press phone records and remotely hack Sharyl Attkisson’s computer, ... overtly threatening any and all whistleblowers and journalists who dared exposing Obama’s crimes.

    The just released CIA documents prove beyond all question or doubt that all modern vehicles driven today can easily be electronically hacked and remote controlled

    WikiLeaks also stated that the CIA is no longer in control of its own hacking arsenal, as the huge “archive appears to have been circulating among former US government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner,” …

    But rather than immediately launch an investigation on the crimes committed by the CIA’s illegal spying on every American, the culprits themselvesthe CIA and FBI – are reflexively announcing that they will begin a criminal probe into the WikiLeaks dump in order to go after and punish the whistleblowing messenger and not the real criminals,

    the bottom line is Congress only allows, promotes and protects crime cabal tyranny and abuse in this classic “fox guarding the henhouse” case. ...
    senators like Feinstein are the last persons to expect to act in the genuine best interests of American citizens. Recall three years ago her going through a similarly disingenuous, feeble motion when reacting to illegal CIA torture propagated by the Cheney-Bush administration ... she expressed her hypocritical outrage toward her previously coddled CIA only after learning the CIA was secretly monitoring her private communications as well. ...

    the CIA has developed the devious means to pull off false flag cyberattacks that can then be conveniently blamed on designated enemies like Putin. Because the Central Intelligence Agency stole malware from other countries, CIA malware under the codename Weeping Angel absolves the Criminals In Action of all guilt, leaving no fingerprints behind, thus delivering false evidence then used to deceitfully charge foreign nations of cyberwarfare crimes and deceptively justify war against any targeted opponent.

    And with virtually every war in American history the result of a false flag, and more false flags being perpetrated by the CIA and FBI now than ever before, at some point in the relative near future, you can bet that the US government will claim a false flag scenario, one probable example being an enemy launching a devastating cyberattack against the US banking industry, posing a serious breach to our national security. Suddenly a banker’s holiday is declared and you cannot withdraw cash from your local ATM or for that matter even pump gas into your car. Deep state headed by Homeland Security has been quietly drumming up and prepping for this type of false flag operation for well over a decade. ...

    Not only do we no longer have dominion over our bodies, our families, our property and our lives, but the government continues to chip away at what few rights we still have to speak freely and think for ourselves. If the government can control speech, it can control thought and, in turn, it can control the minds of the citizenry.
