No Liberty or Security Ten Years After 9/11

September 16, 2011

But there is plenty of paranoia! – Brian @ NCT

As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, many Americans have  unfortunately had a casual disregard for infringements on our civil  liberties that have occured since that fateful day.

The most glaring examples of government abuses include the TSA, warrantless wiretaps and searches, and  the violations  of financial and personal privacy by the PATRIOT Act.

But there are also smaller and creeping threats to civil liberties that have  not surfaced, but threaten to radically change basic constitutional protections  in America. The Department of Justice recently arrested and indicted Jubair Ahmad, a  24-year-old Pakistani legal resident living in Virginia, for the dangerously  vague crime of “providing material support” to a designated terrorist  organization. Ahmad uploaded a YouTube video showing Abu Ghraib photos, U.S.  Iraqi war footage, and Islamic prayers. For this, he faces more than twenty  years in prison.

Alex Jones Calls For Mass Resistance To Implementation Of Body Scanners

January 5, 2010

Radio talk show host Alex Jones is calling for petitions, boycotts and lawsuits en mass in an effort to block the nationwide implementation of full body scanners that represent a total violation of privacy, a health risk, and the next wave of tyranny being metered out against the American people and the people of the world under the phony pretext of fighting terrorism.

“Our long journey into domestication and dependency on the scientific dictatorship is accelerating, our entire society is being turned into a massive surveillance grid, it has been designed to persecute the people,” Jones warned on his show yesterday, adding that the scanners were the latest manifestation of the prison planet being constructed around humanity.

Allied with the contrived global warming movement, terrorism is the other prong of the pincer being used to crush freedom and advance totalitarianism in the developed world as Homeland Security follows the plan it was created to carry out – the gradual implementation of martial law in America characterized by the kind of stifling security we now see in airports being introduced into our daily lives in shopping malls, public schools, and many other buildings.
