“Corruptisima republica plurimae leges.”—Tacitus (The more corrupt a republic, the more laws.)
Homeland Security and the TSA are a flop. People unqualified to be rent-a-cops whose ranks are filled with pedophiles, petty thieves, and people who once were quaintly referred to as "mashers".
The rest? Barney Fife with an automatic weapon.
Militarized police forces are shooting down innocent Americans while the true criminals, bank robbers in three piece suits, laugh on their private jets bound for foreign havens.
Laughing not because they stole trillions of dollars, but because they stole the entire monetary system and every year come tax time, Americans are forced at gunpoint to hand them more money. Now, up to 70% if Obama has his way.
Today, with rampant inflation (don't think there is inflation? Explain the price of gold, food, and fuel) and an unemployment rate that is nearing 25% nationwide (look here for numbers not massaged by the government) the cracks that big government and big corporations didn't want you to notice are all too obvious to the average guy on the street.
Hooligans running wild in the streets of America. Neighborhoods under siege. Street cops telling people to buy a gun when just a few years ago they were lining up with Jim and Sarah Brady crying about the "senseless gun violence".
Cities drastically downsizing police and fire services. Some eliminating them entirely. Hospitals closing. An unrelenting flood of the diseased and uneducated, and worse, the criminal elements of foreign powers streaming through open borders.
Some cities are being ruled by oligarchs declaring "states of emergency" whenever they feel threatened. Wonder from whom they have taken their cue.
People living in storm drains.
If you're really fortunate, family and friends to turn to.
If you're just lucky, a check once a month that you have to nurse to buy food, medicine, clothing, shelter.
If you're not even lucky, life is like a chapter out of The Road.
As things continue their downward spiral, there will be calls for someone to do something.
When Obama came to power, he wanted a national police force.
His very own Sicherheitspolizei.
And now, he may just very well get it.
The Rand Corporation has just released a document titled "A Stability Police Force For The United States: Justification and options for creating US capabilities." It is a 173 page document describing nearly every facet of the possible organization.
Mirrored here in case it gets pulled from Rand's site.
Those of us who have paid attention to the government know that when they tell you they are thinking of doing something, they've already done it. The SPF is here. It just has to show its face.
Need proof? In the wake of 9 /11, how long did it take for the government to pen the "Patriot Act" and for Homeland Security and the TSA to arrive?
How long does it take the government to get a ship built?
Desperate people will turn to crime in order to survive. They will rationalize everything and justify nearly anything.
When the economy truly implodes, Rodney King will look back on his riot fondly. Remembering it as a pleasant summer day in the City Of Angels.
Increasing lawlessness, random violence, riots, real or staged terrorist acts and drug cartel fueled violence, which are symptoms of a failing state, will stretch local, county and state law enforcement to the breaking point.
And in rides the SPF, Stability Police Force.
"Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." - Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference Evians France 1991
Desperate people will rationalize and justify anything. And they will work for the SPF.
To put a roof over their heads, and food in front of their kids, to regain some self respect by blaming others in the company of like minded traitors will help them sleep at night.
Nothing will stop them from turning in their friends, family members, and neighbors to be carted off into the night. Such will be the climate of fear they have created. Always suspicious and always under suspicion.
