Most people have heard of NPR and immediately recognize it as a mouthpiece for liberal progressive policies and a hotbed of Democrat apparatchiks. What many may not be familiar with is NPR’s overseas sister, Voice of America (VOA). VOA has largely operated outside of domestic scrutiny because its broadcast target is decidedly overseas. Well, today, I had the unfortunate opportunity to experience firsthand what our taxes dollars go to fund respective of Voice of America (VOA). Think of VOA as “America’s” voice abroad, much like the BBC World Service. Naturally, one would expect some degree of pro-American propaganda for which VOA was established, but not an hour long Commander-in-Chief bashing session that went to great lengths to blame President Trump and America for all of the world’s ills. The weekend commentary passed off as a news discussion on VOA left no doubt to the listener that President Trump was a reckless and incompetent man whose policies have made the world a more dangerous place. In particular, it was clear that the President Trump’s unjustified aggression was picking a fight with “poor” North Korea that apparently had been a well behaved international actor right up until President Trump messed everything up. This utter garbage is nothing more than angry Leftists still whining about losing the election. However, it is very dangerous and not a game because it shapes world opinion. What these spiteful editors and producers are doing is directly undermining US foreign policy and cannot be allowed to continue. Read more

In case you haven’t heard, this year’s New Year’s Eve celebration in New York City will have “unprecedented” security. Apparently, there is an even “worster” threat than any previous year that not just justifies, but requires even more security for “your” protection. For those that have never tried to attend the New Year’s event in and around Times Square, it may come as a surprise that YOU are the threat they are “protecting” you against. If you have any doubts, just take a quick look at how the “citizens” are treated in this full display of life under the Police States of America, which is collectively costing taxpayers billions of dollars. I make no apologies. This level of security is far more of a problem than the threats, which were created by the same people that now insist on jamming this massive police state down your throat to “protect” you. Of course they know this security is just smoke and mirrors and really doesn’t offer real protection. However, it does mean that the elites “protecting” you get to assume nearly absolute power over every aspect of your life while also becoming incredibly rich by pilfering every last dime you make to pay for building and maintaining this police state. Not a bad deal if you are an elite, but a horrible one for those of us once known as “citizens.” I am hoping at least a few of our readers see the obvious connection between “your security” and losing all aspects of freedom and liberty this New Year. My wish is that our nation wakes-up and says enough! It is time people start pushing back on what they will and will not “submit” to. We have crossed nearly all thresholds. Security is now synonymous with slavery. As such, today I am taking the time to outline just a few of the ways you will get to experience the very real “security benefits” of the police state as you try to enjoy ringing in 2018.
Let’s look at the police state reality a bit more closely in New York City right now. For starters, why even a single person would attend the Times Square New Year’s Eve events is beyond rational logic in today’s world. It can only be attributed to the lemming mindset of the masses. From an entertainment perspective, it literally has nothing to offer. The “security” ruined the fun. For tonight’s events you can expect to be waiting in endless lines, getting smashed and mobbed by crowds, literally freezing to death, having no place to sit or relax, being unable to bring anything with you that could perhaps even remotely improve your comfort level, have no access to bathrooms for 12 hours or more, and if not enough, you will never be close enough to see a thing. These points alone should turn all, but the insane back.
Should you decide to brave the cold and crowds and have an iron bladder, you get to experience the joys of the police state firsthand. Nothing says “good time” like being herded into cages and pens by heavily armed Gestapo thugs dressed in black and threatening you with actual assault rifles. The lucky ones also get to have dogs stick their nose up their asses for a cheap thrill and paw their belongings while armed thugs watch for any sign you aren’t willingly submitting to their unwarranted search. Once corralled in your pen, don’t you dare even think about leaving. Anyone trying to move from their assigned pen before the Gestapo allows it will be quickly apprehended, questioned, and possibly arrested or worse. If you are suicidal, make sure to bring a bag with diapers, snacks, or a camera so you can enjoy the full thrill of being treated as if you are a terrorist. Expect to be stopped (violently if you don’t immediately obey orders that you probably won’t hear over the deafening noise of the drunken mob), searched, ruffed up and/or sodomized, and robbed (you aren’t getting your stuff back) at gun point by the police “protecting” you. You may even be lucky enough to unknowingly have a sniper’s cross-hairs placed on your head while you “enjoy” the festivities just to make sure you aren’t up to something. Only slaves submit to such treatment. Anyone that tries to tell you this is acceptable and normal is either an obedient serf or an oppressive master.
The overt Gestapo actions are just the tip of the police state iceberg. What you don’t see is even more massive, costly, and Orwellian. The silent surveillance state operates behind the scenes and is the envy of every dictator. Before you even decided to attend the celebration, the government knew and had tagged you for analysis. Your blogs, emails, texts, and phone calls were all collected, stored, and analyzed. Any social media post suggesting celebrating New Year’s in New York was immediately assessed. If you happened to be a student studying the Middle East, the websites you likely visited through your studies alone were enough to have you flagged and treated as a terrorist whether you were aware of the labeling or not. Even your purchases were cross referenced for possible threat behaviors like buying a one-way ticket…and we know how dangerous people are that buy one way tickets! The dark humor behind all this is as sure as I am writing this post, there is an analyst somewhere reading it saying to himself/herself that all these people worried about the police state are just paranoid….oh the irony!
If you bought a train or plane ticket to New York, you had to submit to providing some type of state issued identification so that your entire personal history was scrutinized by algorithms. Then your entire trip through the airport or train station was monitored by armed government agents and watched by cameras. Of course you also got the full physical assault by TSA if you flew, which was admittedly overt, but just another tactic to desensitize the masses into becoming a slave. True freemen don’t suffer such abuses and the proof is readily available. Ever wonder why your “leaders” and the elites don’t seem to have a problem with the hassles of flying and TSA? It is because they don’t deal with it. These systems are set up to allow them to control you, not the reverse. For example, see how the elites are treated as they fly out of the Signature Terminal at Dulles International Airport (https://www.signatureflight.com/locations/iad). If you are like most, you probably didn’t even know that terminal existed or that you had alternatives to TSA. Further, you probably had no idea you could still fly by simply getting your ticket and getting on your aircraft (many times literally just driving up to the plane in your armored black Suburban and getting in) instead of being treated like a terrorist waiting in long lines to be sodomized by low-IQ, GED waivers getting a federal pension at your expense. The difference of course is that the government doesn’t want you to know they have set up a two-tier system. One for the masses and one for their masters, just like all Leftist regimes.
For those of you that chose land routes, you weren’t in anyway immune from the surveillance state. If you chose to take Uber, your travel records were stored and analyzed to see every place you traveled and with whom. If you chose to drive, your license plate was scanned, stored, and analyzed dozens if not hundreds of times. Your face was also captured by hundreds of traffic cameras and fed through facial recognition systems. Even the RFID system in your tires (you know, the thing that tells you if your tires have low pressure…yep, you get tracked by it) has allowed your entire trip to be plotted like breadcrumbs by covert monitoring stations. You also passed through countless radiation sensors and bio-chem agent sniffers covertly installed along nearly every road in the United States. As icing on the cake, you were also extorted for well over a hundred dollars in tolls to “freely” travel on roads you already paid for many times over so that bureaucrats can siphon the money off to their cronies. Finally, before you get home, you may even have been lucky enough to be caught in a speed camera (automated highway robbery system) and get to pay a few hundred more dollars just so you could “enjoy” the celebration in New York City.
Far above, your every move is also being surveilled, tracked, and analyzed. Military aircraft and drones used for spying are circling overhead collecting massive amounts of data ranging from radiation signatures to cell phone discussions. Stationary aerostats are also literally recording every single movement from Baltimore to Buffalo, which can be pulled up and run in reverse to see where any single person originated from beginning with the time the system was in place a couple years ago. Even higher, a massive array of spy satellites orbits the Earth collecting additional mountains of information on everything from global communications to thermal imagery and pictures of your license plates.
Now here is the clincher. All of this massive “security” operates at the costs of billions of dollars billed directly to you the taxpayer. While you become poorer and more oppressed, the people that are imposing this upon you are getting rich on the security business AND gaining more absolute power by the day. The elites want nothing less than total information dominance and total awareness of every aspect of your life. Once these systems are in place it is very easy to then take complete control of power because any resistance would be nearly impossible. Nonetheless, the fact that none of this security in practice is very effective should be alarming. Sure, it stops some idiots from doing bad things, but anyone with real intent and basic skills will be able to still successfully carry out an attack. This has been proved over and over again by successful “lone wolf” attacks carried out by impressionable failures in life. Do you think for a second that with all of the security in New York tonight that if someone wanted to do something bad that they would be stopped? Not a chance. It is all smoke and mirrors. The police state has never been about stopping crime and providing security. It has only ever had one person. Control. Control is the goal and therefore as I stated at the beginning of this article, YOU are the threat.
If none of what I am detailing disturbs you, you are already a slave. Mentally, you have been broken like a good mule and you will be worked till you are no longer a benefit and then euthanized by the system. You are most likely incapable of knowing what freedom is and therefore are incapable of appreciating the immense value it bestows. You are dooming not just yourself, but future generations of this nation to servitude under increasingly oppressive and violently dictatorial leadership. If you are dumb enough to believe that “if you aren’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide,” it will only be a short matter of time before you find out that your “legal and lawful” views, actions, or opinions run afoul of the governmental dictates and you begin to suffer punishments. If this erosion of Rights is not turned back, we will see the final collapse of the Republic in a decade or less. Good luck in the New Year and boycott NYC where YOU are the threat.
Paul Craig Roberts gets it. He sees the real threat from the distractions. He understands that our nation’s enemies are trying to divide us to destroy our nation and are using their socialist foot soldiers to spread their evil, vitriolic message of identity politics. If for nothing else, I applaud him for standing up to the hypocrites on the Left that in reality are the epicenter of hate, violence, and intolerance. His article is worth the read.
