The Growth of American Fascism: From LBJ to Obama

“It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.” –David Hume

In the aftermath of the highly suspicious Sandy Hook incident, Americans have experienced a predictable escalation of the elite’s ongoing efforts to destroy their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

A disarmed civilian population has long been a principle ambition of the globalist elites. As patriots are well aware, an armed population is the last line of defense against tyranny.  

The globalist vision is one that has been passed down over time through each succeeding generation of the elite.

As James Warburg of the Council on Foreign Relations stated to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950, “We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.”

Of course, a disarmed populace is much easier to conquer and therefore does not need to give consent to the neo-feudal rule of the NWO overlords. The American police state has continued to expand in an exponential way since Warburg spoke those words.

The elected officials supposedly charged with the task of preserving the constitutional rights of Americans have become ever more acquiescent to tyranny as the decades have passed. For instance, during the same year that Warburg proclaimed these sinister intentions, President Harry Truman,
himself sympathetic to globalist designs in many ways, nevertheless vetoed the 1950 McCarran Act which would have allowed the indefinite detention of citizens without trial.

His successor President Eisenhower, himself connected to the Rockefeller internationalists, nevertheless criticized the growing dominance of American foreign policy by the merchants of death through the military-industrial complex.

Of course, the last American president to challenge the globalist agenda in any serious way was John F. Kennedy, whose quixotic efforts to halt the monetary dominance of the Federal Reserve cost him his life.

Subsequent U.S. presidents have learned well from the example that was made of Kennedy. It is no coincidence that it was JFK’s successor, Lyndon Baines Johnson, who presided over the unprecedented assault on the Second Amendment rights of Americans that came with the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Previous attacks on the right to bear arms throughout American history had been far more limited in scope and typically targeted specific population groups. For instance, gun control laws enacted during the post-Civil War era were oriented primarily towards the goal of preventing the recently freed slaves from gaining access to firearms and disarming the African-American population generally.

Anti-gun laws enacted during the 1930s were largely a response to the growth of organized crime during that decade and the emergence of notorious outlaws in the style of Al Capone or the Barker-Karpis gang.

However, the Gun Control Act of 1968 was enacted into legislation following the conspicuous and uncannily timed assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and JFK’s younger brother, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, as both men began to criticize the war in Vietnam.

It was also a time of great civil unrest much of which was instigated by the sons and daughters of the ruling class on the campuses of elite universities. The Act itself was based on the weapons control law enacted by Nazi Germany in 1938.

Its principal sponsor was Senator Thomas Dodd, who is known to have possessed a copy of the original Nazi weapons law and which was probably acquired during his time as member of the prosecution team during the Nuremberg trials.

The police state expansion of the late 1960s and early 1970s also took the form of the FBI’s COINTELPRO program directed by J. Edgar Hoover and the beginnings of an ostensible “war on drugs” declared by LBJ’s successor Richard M. Nixon in 1970.

It was at this point that the federalization of local law enforcement really began to expand as state and local law enforcement agencies began to scramble to obtain federal money supposedly allocated for fighting the war on drugs.

President Nixon created a new federal police agency in the form of the Drug Enforcement Administration on July 1, 1973. Domestic law enforcement became increasingly militarized as the earliest S.W.A.T. teams began to appear.

The growth of the police state was hampered somewhat by the revelations of the Church Committee during the post-Watergate era but the process of radical expansion of the police state that had been set in motion during the Vietnam era was never reversed in any meaningful way.

By the early 1980s, the executive branch was headed by President Ronald Reagan, a supposed outsider who quickly succumbed to globalist lure as demonstrated by his willingness to accept the super-globalist George H.W. Bush as his running mate.

The Reagan regime dramatically intensified the growth of the police state under the auspices of escalating the fight against drugs even as his own CIA, and indeed high level White House operatives, themselves became increasingly involved in the international drug trade.

Reagan set in motion a process of mass incarceration of Americans that would eventually see the U.S. prison population quintuple over the next quarter century as private profiteering from the “prison-industrial complex” became an increasingly lucrative enterprise for the class of
corporate overseers.

As George H. W. Bush himself assumed the presidency and openly proclaimed the era of the New World Order, the meaning of the NWO for ordinary Americans was made clear by the federal assault on the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

The spectacle of federal agents shooting a retreating adolescent boy in the back and gunning down a mother holding a baby in her arms left no doubt that the American police state had been fully consolidated. Mere months later, after Bush had been defeated by the globalist-groomed William J.
Clinton, the federal police state struck again as seventy-six men, women, and children were hideously murdered by federal agents during the attack on the Branch Davidian church at Waco, Texas.

Clinton would subsequently use the impeccably timed bombings of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the federal building at Oklahoma City in 1995 as a pretense for enacting the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 which dramatically curtailed the habeus corpus rights of Americans
that date back to the time of the Magna Carta.

After the son of one of America’s most elite globalist families assumed the presidency in 2001, the overlords of the police state received their greatest gift yet when the twin towers went down during the most dramatic and perhaps most suspicious incident in American history.

The legal and political apparatus for full-fledged martial law was established in the United States by means of the USA PATRIOT ACT and the provisions for secret trials by military commissions. The “star chamber” of old had finally been resurrected.

The ability of the authorities to engage in unprecedented levels of surveillance of the affairs of private citizens with legal impunity was firmly established. The plans of the elites for the future handling of
American patriotic dissidents who would take a stand for their rights were fully revealed at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.

The American police state had finally sunk to the level of the totalitarian regimes and Third World despotisms of the twentieth century in its willingness to engage in torture and other atrocities as political tools.

In 2008, Barack Obama, a man seemingly with very little in the way of a documented past or personal history, emerged as a presidential candidate who avowed to reverse the encroachments of the police state which had taken place under the previous regime.

But once holding the reins of power, President Obama not only failed to keep his supposed commitment to the restoration of liberty but actually moved to consolidate the police state measures enacted under his predecessor.

Obama not only sought to renew the PATRIOT Act and refused to close the extra-constitutional prison at Guantanamo, but claimed for himself the authority to unilaterally assassinate American citizens merely suspected of wrongdoing.

He likewise signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act, which essentially removes from American federal law any pretense of due process or fidelity to the U.S. Constitution.

For all practical purposes, the United States of America is now an executive dictatorship accountable only to the globalist overlords who have puppet mastered each successive American president for generations and with increasingly astounding success.
