America Through The Looking Glass

The time is now too late, once they start rounding you all up for the concentration camps, you will realize your complicity in you own death, by chosing to remain silent.


Analysis Of Bush Presidency Suggests
A Nation Overthrown
By Bill Petz

Consider this:

An inarticulate, politically inexperienced man with family links to a previous national regime comes to provincial leadership.

Subsequently he gains the highest national office without winning the popular vote. The election in which he was declared the victor is considered compromised by his brother's province.

He appoints a chief law enforcement officer who has repeatedly called for constitutional revisions.

Regulatory agencies are filled with those previously regulated.

Soldiers patrol transportation centers.

International treaties are abrogated.

International legal organizations are shunned.

Roles of police and military are blurred.

Law enforcement agencies are centralized.

Individual civil rights are reduced.

A "shadow" government is created.

Domestic surveillance is increased.

People are encouraged to spy on each other.

Military budgets are increased.

The military establishes a disinformation program.

Media access to government is limited.

Consultations with the legislative branch decline.

Connections to corrupt corporate sponsors are disavowed.

Efforts to further plunder natural resources for profit are initiated.

Access to past administrations' documents is limited.

A war mentality is established with imprecise enemies.

Nebulous fear-inducing alerts are periodically released.

National level profiling is introduced.

People are imprisoned without public charges and unknown others are "disappeared."

Does the word "coup" come to mind?
