Over the top doesn’t begin to describe where the US Police State has gone. From daily beatings, killings and arbitrary incarcerations to beyond Orwellian surveillance and armored military patrolling their streets, Americans have transitioned into a full blown Stasi controlled State.
Just google “police state america” and you’ll see there are over 620 MILLION results. This is clearly no secret, yet the hoards trundle on like nothing’s happening.
Who were the Stasi and why is this label appropriate?
The East German secret police, known as the Stasi, were an infamously intrusive secret police force. They amassed dossiers on about one quarter of the population of the country during the Communist regime.
But their spycraft — while incredibly invasive — was also technologically primitive by today’s standards. (source)
Here’s a graphic of a typical Stasi file. You can just imagine what today’s neural network of computers is capable of.

State of the Stasi Today
As everyone now knows, although it’s been available knowledge for a long time, we’re being traced, tracked and monitored on a massive scale. As we move into biometrics and even so-called pre-crime detection the situation only worsens by the day. Now with the NDAA it doesn’t take anything for a warrantless arrest, incarceration and even death for anything considered suspicious, evidence or no.
And all based on the deliberately ambiguous, techno-sanitized term “metadata”:
Former CIA director: ‘We kill people based on metadata’
At a recent debate concerning the National Security Agency’s bulk surveillance programs, former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden admitted that metadata is used as the basis for killing people.
The comments were made during a debate at Johns Hopkins University, after Georgetown University Law Center professor David Cole detailed the kind of information the government can obtain simply by collecting metadata – who you call, when you call them, how long the call lasts, and how often calls between the two parties are made.
Although NSA supporters often claim such metadata collection is permissible considering the content of the call is not collected, Cole argued that is not the case, since the former general counsel of the NSA, Stewart Baker, has already stated metadata alone is more than enough to reveal vast amounts of an individual’s personal information.

The Disease Spreads – By Design
What’s worse is all the countries following this draconian blueprint. The reason? It’s the stated plan of the infamous New World Order. One that must be enforced, for our own welfare, safety and security of course.
As Henry Kissinger famously confessed way back in 1991:
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.”
Plain enough? Apparently not for most people. Maybe when they take a boot on the neck or they see innocents brutalized or shot for themselves the point will come home, but apparently folks are even acquiescing to that even that now.
Where Are We?
It can’t get much worse than this. That’s what people don’t realize. The cage has come down on the farm and yet the animals still graze as if it’s a protective fence. Hard to believe, I know, but if you’re still inside that cage you probably don’t really get it yet either, no matter what your mind tells you. Your feet are frozen in place, as in a nightmare where you can’t scream. The full reality hasn’t really dawned on you if you haven’t drastically changed your life and started taking action to either push back or get the hell out of the pen…or both.
People like to theorize what they would have done in any one of those past oppressive regimes from safely distanced history, whether it was Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia – would they have fled? Would they have fought for their lives, and a whole lot sooner than those “blind, ignorant souls” of the past?
That’s how it works. “It couldn’t happen here, we’re too aware of the lessons of the past.” Oh really? It’s already here.
Is anyone really paying attention? A precious few I’m sorry to say.
I hope you’re one of them. And take serious action. We’re nearing society’s event horizon, the point of no return.
Full conscious awareness and appropriate action are both the solution, and escape route.
Business as usual is the enemy of your soul, and those you love.
Spread the word.
