As the Boston Globe tweeted today, “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”

(NaturalNews) It’s now becoming clear that members of the Boston bomb squad had advanced notice of the horrific bombing that took place at the marathon today. As an eyewitness reports, once the bombs went off, officials began announcing, “this is just a drill!” This logically means they were all informed of the “bomb drill” beforehand. Otherwise, why would they respond with, “this is just a drill” ?

(WashingtonsBlog) – Preface: While a lot of people talk about the loss of our Constitutional liberties, people usually speak in a vague, generalized manner … or focus on only one issue and ignore the rest.

This post explains the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution – and provides a scorecard on the extent of the loss of each right.

Ralph Nader and Bruce Fein visited Harvard Law School for the event, “America’s Lawless Empire: The Constitutional Crimes of Bush and Obama,” both men discussed what they called lawless, violent practices by the White House and its agencies that have become institutionalized by both political parties.

Extremely eye-opening information…..must read!
by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) President Obama plans to use military drones in the skies over the United States to assassinate journalists, patriots and critics of his administration. That’s the inescapable conclusion from the emerging pattern of evidence now publicly available — keep reading for details.

Front and center in this pattern of evidence is the 16-page memo that was just released by Obama’s lawyers in the Department of Justice. This memo puts forth a “legal justification” for the President to order the drone assassination of any American citizen he names — anytime, anywhere, for any reason. This new power claimed by the President has no basis in federal law or the Constitution. It is an invented power of absolute tyranny that puts the power to decide who lives and who dies in the hands of one man. This document essentially legalizes the President acting as a serial murderer.

It is claimed that the purpose of this new power to simply name any American the President doesn’t like and immediately have them struck by a Hellfire missile launched from a drone is designed to “protect America.” Yet the 16-page memo that claims to justify all this was intentionally written to include Americans on U.S. soil as potential targets.

As Judge Andrew Napolitano explained just a few days ago on Fox News:

“This 16-page white paper is written so vaguely that the logic from it could… permit the President to kill Americans here in the United States.”

That’s the whole point, actually. If Americans on U.S. soil were to be excluded from such drone assassinations, such language would have been made readily apparent in the memo. But no such language is found in the memo. In fact, the tone of the document quite clearly states that the President has the authority to order drone killings of U.S. citizens anywhere in the world, under any circumstances.

This legal manipulation even has U.S. Senators worried. Democrat Senator Patrick J Leahy and Senator Charles Grassley sent a letter to Obama on Friday, stating, “The deliberate killing of a United States citizen pursuant to a targeted operation authorized or aided by our government raises significant constitutional and legal concerns.”

That’s the understatement of the year.

U.S. Senators are trying to create an “oversight committee” so that a few of them are part of the illegal, unconstitutional decision process of which Americans the U.S. government should murder next. As Kurt Nimmo reports with InfoWars.com:

Feinstein has proposed “legislation to ensure that drone strikes are carried out in a manner consistent with our values, and the proposal to create an analogue of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to review the conduct of such strikes,” in other words a secret tribunal that will hand down kill orders for Americans the government believes are “suspected militants.”

If drones are to be unleashed under the values of Feinstein — an outright traitor to the nation and a serial violator of the U.S. Constitution — then God help us all. Remember, Feinstein is the Senator who has already said she wants all Americans to turn all their guns in. She literally wants the entire U.S. civilian population disarmed so that government has all the weapons, including drones which Feinstein wants flying over U.S. cities, ready to strike named American citizens at any moment.

The American “battlefield” doctrine and the NDAA

In defending the drone assassination powers of the President, you might hear language used that says drones will “only be used on the battlefield.” That seems to imply they will only be used in the Middle East, right?

Wrong. The USA has been legally defined as the new “battlefield” by the NDAA. That’s the National Defense Authorization Act which also allows for the arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens without trial, without legal representation and even without them ever being charged.

The USA is the new “battlefield,” and when you combine the NDAA and the DOJ’s new drone killing justification memo, you now have the claimed legal framework for any American on U.S. soil to be arrested, detained, tortured or blown to bits without warning and without even a single shred of evidence being presented against him.

Yes, this is America today. Right now. You are living under a military dictatorship and most of you don’t even realize it yet. Even liberals and progressives are starting to wake up to Obama’s tyranny, by the way. On Democracy Now, Daniel Ellsberg recently described Obama’s actions as a “systematic assault on the Constitution.”

Who are the terrorists?

Of course, anyone who raises these points will be immediately dismissed with the claim that all this new power in the hands of the President will only be used “against terrorists.”

Okay, then who are the terrorists, exactly? It turns out they are YOU!

As Judge Napolitano recently explained:

The [Janet Napolitano DHS] memorandum said that people who are pro-life, people who believe in the right to keep and bear arms, returning veterans, people who think the government is too big and the IRS is too powerful, could be characterized as domestic terrorists. That could characterize two-thirds of the country. (Click here to see related video.)

Another DHS report named as terrorists anyone who opposes illegal immigration, abortion or federal taxes.

The pieces of the puzzle
So now it all becomes clear:

1) The NDAA legalized the federal government arresting, detaining and torturing American citizens if they were classified as “terrorists.”

2) The DOJ drone-killing memo legalized the President murdering anyone he names by simply claiming they might be associated with “terrorists.”

3) The DHS announces that anyone who isn’t an absolutely Big Government boot-licker and Obama worshipper IS A TERRORIST.

And there you have it: The full circle of justification to use military drone strikes against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. Simply call them terrorists, and the rest of the legal framework backs you up.

I repeat: All that is necessary to justify the murder of American citizens without trial is labeling them “terrorists” even with no evidence to support such a claim. The drone killings require no evidence. They only require the signature of one man.

Who is likely on the drone strike target list in the USA

So who is most likely to be assassinated by President Obama once drone strikes are fully unleashed in the USA?

• Journalists.
• Political opponents.
• Anti-government protesters. (One Hellfire missile takes ’em all out.)
• Online activists.
• Veterans.
• Gun owners and gun shops.
• Constitutionalists and libertarians.

Drone strikes are completely silent because the Hellfire missiles arrive faster than the speed of sound. You don’t even hear the missile until after the explosion. The blast radius of a Hellfire missile is 15 – 20 meters, and everything inside that radius is completely obliterated. This is more than enough to destroy entire homes, apartments and office buildings, not to mention vehicles and even light bunkers.

World Net Daily editor Joseph Farah actually voiced his concern about Obama being reelected, saying that he believed Obama would “kill journalists” if he won a second term. Farah is not being paranoid. He’s right on the money with where this is going. Click here to read his article published right before the 2012 election.

Drones are weapons of tyranny

In the history of America, rifles are the weapons of liberty, and in any war limited to just rifles and similar weapons, the People will always achieve victory over tyranny.

But tyrannies tend to rise up when specialized, highly-complex weapons come onto the scene, creating an imbalance of military power that suppresses the People. Drones are that new weapon: There is virtually no citizen defense against drones, and drones can strike targets anyone in the country with zero warning. You do not get called to appear in court, you do not get arrested, and you do not receive a warning. You’re simply murdered by the U.S. President without warning and without a trial. That’s the new America.

The cover story: Drone strikes that actually take out the homes of Obama’s political enemies can even be explained away as “bombings” using conventional explosives. A convenient cover story can keep drones out of the news, even while drone strikes are taking out journalists, activists and critics of the criminal Obama regime.

You might wonder, then, what is the strategy for defending against drones? It all comes down to men with rifles raiding drone airfields and taking them over. Once again, rifles become the single most important tool of resistance in the face of tyranny, which is exactly why the government is right now desperately seeking to register and confiscate all rifles in the hands of U.S. citizens. The MQ-1C Warrior drone has an operational range of 675 miles, meaning that drone airfields must be relatively close to intended targets. The airfields are the weak link, and this is what Americans must take back if drone mass murder is unleashed against American citizens (by any president, now or in the future).

There are also some high-tech defenses against drones. Iran appears to have hacked a drone by feeding it false GPS signals, guiding it to land on an Iranian runway where it was then taken into custody by the government there. This sort of GPS hacking appears to be relatively simple to accomplish, but the technique has never been proven in an actual military conflict.

Another defense against drones is to stay on the move. Don’t hole up in fixed locations for long periods of time. Drone strikes are only effective if the intended target’s location is known with certainty. In a resistance war against a tyrannical government, resistance forces will of course remain very mobile and unpredictable in their locations and movements. This will cause the government to waste lots of Hellfire missiles blowing up empty houses and likely killing the wrong people.

Every drone strike against U.S. targets will, of course, enrage the population even further, resulting in yet another mass wave of recruitment into the resistance. The more Americans Obama (or another president) kills with drones, the more powerful the resistance becomes. This spiral continues until there is either a violent armed overthrow of the government or the entire resistance movement is mass murdered by the government itself. In the case of the latter, that’s how we end up with Hitler, Stalin, Mao and other dictatorial tyrants who assume power in the aftermath of blood running in the streets.

Stop being so naive — this is happening NOW!

If you think any of this seems outlandish, you aren’t paying attention. The 16-page drone assassination memo has already been published. The NDAA is federal law. The DHS memos are real. All of us who question government, who own firearms, and who believe in the Bill of Rights have already been named terrorists.

The stage is being set to wage an all-out war with the American people. That’s the reason DHS has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammo. It’s the reason DHS is buying 7,000 full-auto assault rifles. All these weapons and ammo are for exclusive use inside the United States of America, on U.S. soil.

This is why thousands of bulletproof roadside checkpoints have been purchased by DHS. It’s why steel cable dividers are being installed on highways, so that you can’t turn around when approaching a TSA checkpoint. This is why talk of shooting gun owners is openly tolerated and even encouraged in the mainstream media and on social networks.

We are witnessing a full-on ramping up toward total war with the American people. This war will be caused (false-flagged) by the government itself, and it will be waged on U.S. soil, using drone assassinations, nationwide gun confiscation, FEMA camps and of course a declaration of Martial Law to justify it all.

The end game is a complete takeover of America by socialist / communist / fascist forces and the outright abolition of liberties and firearms in the hands of citizens. America is scheduled for termination, and people like Obama have been placed in power precisely because he can fool enough people for a sufficient amount of time to get this plan underway without popular resistance. Obama is seductive and hypnotic, so his followers will think he’s helping America even while he’s actually destroying it by design.

Drones are terminators in the sky, controlled by one man — a tyrant who sits in the Oval Office and respects no boundaries of either the Constitution or federal law. He makes law up as he goes along, betraying his oath of office and violating the very tenants of justice upon which this country was founded.

Obama is a traitor to America and a danger to us all. For the sake of America’s future, he must be impeached, thrown out of office and replaced with a President who actually upholds the Constitution and respects the laws of the land.

(NaturalNews) US Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced her highly-anticipated gun disarmament legislation yesterday, throwing her hat in the ring as an outright traitor to the United States Constitution and a dangerous tyrant who seeks to hand the federal government a firearms monopoly. The bill would criminalize nearly all semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and handguns while calling for nationwide gun registration of all existing firearms. It would also criminalize citizens buying ammo magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, even while the government can purchase ammo magazines of unlimited capacity.

This is red alert time for all Americans who seek to save this nation from falling into the hands of outright tyrants.

How does the federal government plan to enforce these new gun control laws, if passed? Using GUNS, of course! The threat of force is what’s used to gain your “compliance” with everything the government does.

As you can easily see, America is under attack from within. Its domestic enemies are now abundantly clear: All those who are actively working against the Second Amendment of the US Bill of Rights are, by definition, enemies of America and subject to arrest and prosecution. Natural News calls for a “line in the sand” defense of our natural-born rights, including the right to keep and bear arms.

Gun prohibition doomed to fail
Feinstein’s gun disarmament legislation, if passed, would launch a new era of “gun prohibition” with all the same failures, financial costs and ethical lapses as the war on drugs, or the war on alcohol during the prohibition of the 1920’s. Even though nearly everyone on the political left recognizes the total failure of marijuana prohibition and alcohol prohibition, many now suddenly believe that gun prohibition will somehow be pulled off without a hitch.

They are wrong. If this policy of Feinstein is pursued, it will drive America into a bloody civil war costing potentially millions of innocent lives. It will turn America’s streets into combat zones, pitting patriotic, freedom-loving Americans against a tyrannical, oppressive, unconstitutional government run by criminals and thugs.

Then again, that might be Feinstein’s plan all along. A civil war would be the perfect excuse to have Obama declare martial law, suspend all elections, and erect a soviet-style police state that suffocates any hope of freedom and liberty.

Gun registration is phase one of a much larger plan for total disarmament of US citizen
Gun registration is only the first step in Feinstein’s grand scheme, of course. Following in the footsteps of Adolf Hitler, another famous gun grabber from the pages of history, Feinstein’s actual plan is as follows:

Step 1) Mandate nationwide registration of all firearms, but lie to the people and tell them they can keep their guns as long as they are registered.

Step 2) Stage another mass shooting, then invoke more fake tears on television while demanding that all guns must now be turned in “for the children.” And besides, we already have the database of all gun owners, so we know where the guns are!

Step 3) The initial calls for gun control will only target semi-automatic firearms, but with each additional staged shooting, the call will go out for even more guns to be confiscated: Bolt-action rifles, pump-action shotguns, and at some point even black powder rifles.

Step 4) Once the population is entirely disarmed and unable to resist, power-hungry people like Feinstein will engage in a full roll-out of total government domination as we’ve seen time and time again throughout history. Those who resist will be shot. Those populations that are “undesirable” will be “cleansed.”

This plan is now readily apparent and obvious to anyone who has studied history. Feinstein, Obama, Schumer and others are fundamentally no different from Hitler, Stalin and Mao. They all are power-hungry tyrants who crave total control over a disarmed population. While they may speak the language of “safety” and democracy, in their hearts they feed off the quest for total power at any cost.

Why this is our absolute line in the sand
The Bill of Rights is what has made America uniquely capable of fending off tyranny and maintaining some semblance of balance between the People and the government. The Second Amendment is the one right that protects all other rights. Without it, there would be no First Amendment, no due process, no right to remain silent, and no freedom whatsoever.

Every government inherently seeks to become a tyrannical dictatorship — it is the natural expansion of power reflected in the desires of nearly all men and women. Our Founding Fathers understood this tendency for nations to slide into tyranny, and they designed a system of separation of powers as well as checks and balances to function as firewalls against runaway oppression.

The Bill of Rights is a critical firewall that prevents the federal government from crossing the line into tyranny. Each right described in the Bill of Rights is an immutable, permanent right that cannot be revoked, nullified or infringed. Any person who attempts to actively overturn one of these sacred rights is deliberately functioning as an enemy of America and a traitor to the People.

If the Second Amendment is lost, soon after you will lose all the following:

• Your right to grow food in your home garden.
• Your right to seek out holistic and alternative medicine.
• Your right to blog about non-conformist subjects.
• Your right to own private property.
• Your right to say NO to vaccines.
• Your right to have as many children as you want.
• Your right to vote in an honest election.
• Your right to express your opinion and speak your mind.
• Your right to home school your children.
• Your right to own supplies of stored food, ammo or precious metals.
• Your right to practice self defense in your own home or community.

All of these rights are now threatened by the dark cloud of evil that has descended upon this country thanks to absolutely wicked manipulators like Dianne Feinstein and Joe Biden.

If you do not take a stand for your right to bear arms, you will lose ALL your rights and freedoms in the very near future. This is a “do or die” moment for America.

Trusting government to protect you is a fatal error
Do not be fooled by the irrational emotional appeals for gun control as voiced by manipulative politicians. They do not care about the Sandy Hook children. What they care about is using the dead children to pursue their insidious agendas of concentrating power into their own hands.

An armed citizenry scares Dianne Feinstein, and it should! “When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” said Thomas Jefferson. And he’s right. He goes on to say:

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

What Dianne Feinstein and all the other gun grabbers are trying to convince you to believe is that your neighbor is a threat to your safety, but your government is your protector. History has shown the exact opposite to be true: Your neighbor is your protector. Your government is a caged beast to be restricted in scope and vigorously denied the resources to expand its reach. Because once government crosses a threshold of power, it rapidly escalates its dominion over the population, quickly usurping all power and systematically destroying any who oppose it.

This is the single most important lesson of history, and it is a lesson that most of today’s youth has never learned, and most of today’s elders have already forgotten. If we do not awaken to the truth of this lesson right now, America will fall to the ruling elite, and all those who stood for liberty will be eliminated. (Followed soon thereafter by everyone else considered a “useless eater.”)

Gun control is more about CONTROL than about GUNS
Dianne Feinstein, you see, isn’t merely trying to take away your gun… she’s trying to take away your power. A firearm is actually the power to say “No!” to government. That’s why firearms scare government so much, and it’s why they systematically stage mass shooting events in order to evoke a nationwide call for guns to be criminalized, registered and eventually confiscated.

Firearms are the great democratic equalizers of society. When guns are widely distributed across the population, they serve as a powerful deterrent to governments that intend to become tyrannies. “Any government that does not trust its citizens with firearms,” wrote Joseph P. Martino in the book Resistance to Tyranny, “is either already a tyranny, or planning to become one.”

You have to ask yourself this question, and I’m going to put it here in bold:

What is the U.S. government planning that requires it to first disarm the American people?

Disarmament, you see, is only the first step to something far larger and far more insidious.

Action items: Three things you can do RIGHT NOW to protect your liberties and the Bill of Rights
Step 1) Call your US Senator and voice your strong opposition to the Feinstein gun control bill. Call the capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Step 2) Call your state representatives and strongly urge them to introduce or support the Firearms Protection Act in your state.

Step 3) Call your local county Sheriff and urge him or her to announce their opposition to unconstitutional gun grabs in your county. Search online for their phone number.

If you will do these three things, you can make a measurable impact on this issue. Remember: This isn’t about guns as much as it’s about protecting your Bill of Rights freedoms and liberties. If the Bill of Rights is gutted by politicians in Washington, there’s nothing they won’t steal from you. That’s why this is where we draw the line in the sand and say NO!

(NaturalNews) It is not a claim being made by some obscure personality who hosts a late-night “radio show” on shortwave, or by a known far-out lunatic seeking his latest 15 minutes of fame, but by none other than a Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

Reports surfaced Jan. 22 that Dr. Jim Garrow, nominated for the prize in 2009, made a shocking claim on his Facebook page in recent days that he was informed by a top military vet that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will follow orders to fire on American citizens if need be.

Garrow, founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, a group that seeks to rescue baby girls from the officially sanctioned “gendercide” in China, is no “kook.” He’s a public figure who has been involved in “helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death,” according to the Pagoda website. That knowledge alone is what makes his claim all the more disturbing and worthy of attention.

‘Litmus test’ for future military commanders?

From his Facebook post:

I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not. Those who will not are being removed.

Later, he followed up the post by adding that the man who told him that is “one of America’s foremost military heroes” whose motivation for divulging the information was to “sound the alarm,” InfoWars.com reported.

Garrow’s news comes on the heels of other notable events currently taking place, including the “national debate” over the desire by the president and many on the political Left to impose sweeping new gun control laws – including the banning of certain military look-alike, semi-automatic rifles involved in the fewest amount of gun crimes, according to the FBI’s crime statistics.

The news also follows a report from the Washington Free Beacon that four-star Marine Gen. James Mattis, head of the United States Central Command, which oversees operations in the Middle East and more specifically; Afghanistan, was “given the bum’s rush out of his job as commander of” CENTCOM “and is being told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned.”

‘Why the hurry?’

Veteran National Security reporter Thomas Ricks wrote on his blog that the firing could have been linked to Mattis’ refusal to toe the line on potential military action against Iran:

Why the hurry? Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way – not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran. Some of those questions apparently were uncomfortable.

But Ricks went on to say something much more revealing – and cryptic – about the Obama administration’s national security team:

I am at the point where I don’t trust his national security team. They strike me as politicized, defensive and narrow. These are people who will not recognize it when they screw up, and will treat as enemies anyone who tells them they are doing that. And that is how things like Vietnam get repeated. Harsh words, I know. But I am worried.

Security upgrades in the era of shrinking budgets

Further, InfoWars.com reminds us:

Concerns over U.S. troops being given orders to fire on American citizens in the event of mass gun confiscation first arose in 1995 when hundreds of Marines at 29 Palms, California were given a survey as part of an academic project by Navy Lieutenant Commander Ernest Guy Cunningham which asked the Marines if they would, “Fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the United States government.” The survey was subsequently leaked because many of the Marines who took it were shocked by the tone of the question.

Finally, there is this, more recent, development. Security at military bases around the country are being enhanced, and all at a time when military budgets on the state and federal levels are supposed to be shrinking. The upgrades are being blamed on the 2010 Fort Hood shooting, but the government’s narrative may give away its motives: “Nearly a year after a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, the Pentagon is taking new steps to beef up security and surveillance programs at its bases, and will join an FBI intelligence-sharing program aimed at identifying future terror threats,” The Associated Press reported.

We will be following these developments.

 

(NaturalNews) If your goal as a leader is to be an authoritarian and rule over people rather than represent them and govern on their behalf, then you’re probably a student of one of the most popular and oft-taught political principles throughout the ages: the use of fear.

In 1513, Niccolo di Bernardo dei Machiavelli, an Italian historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher, humanist and writer based in Florence during the Renaissance, defined the principle in The Prince, a political treatise: “Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.”

Hundreds of years later, Robert Higgs, senior fellow in Political Economy at The Independent Institute, expounded further upon this principle of using fear to govern:

To disregard fear is to place ourselves in possibly mortal jeopardy. Even the man who acts heroically on the battlefield, if he is honest, admits that he is scared. To tell people not to be afraid is to give them advice that they cannot take. Our evolved physiological makeup disposes us to fear all sorts of actual and potential threats, even those that exist only in our imagination.

The people who have the effrontery to rule us, who call themselves our government, understand this basic fact of human nature. They exploit it, and they cultivate it. Whether they compose a warfare state or a welfare state, they depend on it to secure popular submission, compliance with official dictates, and, on some occasions, affirmative cooperation with the state’s enterprises and adventures. Without popular fear, no government could endure more than twenty-four hours. David Hume taught that all government rests on public opinion, but that opinion, I maintain, is not the bedrock of government. Public opinion itself rests on something deeper: fear.

History of Fear

Scaring us into submission is a principle in wide use today, this very moment, as a way to prescribe and control sociological and political outcomes sought by the elite.

But it isn’t a new tactic. Some historians correctly argue, for example, that constant fear of nuclear war with the former Soviet Union drove the growth of what President Dwight D. Eisenhower called the “Military-Industrial Complex,” a development that led successive administrations to pursue unlawful military ambitions and Congress to adopt unconstitutional surveillance and reporting laws (which continues to this day).

In more modern times, some correctly argue that politicians used fear in the wake of the 9/11 attacks to pass the USA Patriot Act, a law that contained a host of unconstitutional provisions which continue to usurp constitutional protections, based on the fear that, in the future, there might be more attacks.

The school of thought remains pervasive among the elite. At a CEO Forum hosted by The Wall Street Journal in early 2009, when he was preparing to serve as White House chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” In other words, use the fear generated by the “crisis” do impose your will.

Well-versed in the concept himself, Obama says it’s you and I who are the fear mongers. In recent days, he has accused gun owners are “ginning up fear” to push their own agenda: “Those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all your guns away. There’s probably an economic element to that; it obviously is good for business.

And yet, even as he spoke those words, Obama was already preparing to sign scores of new executive orders and actions to impose new gun-control measures throughout the Executive Branch, using public concern and fear generated by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings as his own impetus for the new measures. He tipped his hand when he quoted from a letter the White House claimed was sent to him by a little girl named Julia following the massacre: “I’m not scared for my safety, I’m scared for others. I have four brothers and sisters, and I know I would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them.”

Fear Mongers in Government, Media Serve Up Danger of the Day

There are more examples of how the political and media elite are inciting, then using, fear to push their agendas.

Congress and Obama have both used last-minute, over-the-edge, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it fear tactics to stump for, and ensure, passage of certain pieces of legislation, particularly the so-called “fiscal cliff” discussions recently and those involving raising the debt ceiling – all fueled by a corporate media willing to play along to get along – despite overwhelming evidence amassed by economists and analysts that our national debt is unsustainable:

— “Investors worried about going over the ‘fiscal cliff’ may have bigger things to fret about: the debt ceiling fight coming in January.” — “Fiscal cliff may be a fear, but debt ceiling much scarier,” Reuters, Dec. 29, 2012

— “The fiscal cliff has consumed Washington for months, but it may end up being the long opening act for a fiscal drama with even higher stakes: the debt ceiling.” — “Enjoy the fiscal cliff debate? Just wait for the debt ceiling,” Politico, Jan. 1, 2013

— “Despite its dismal approval rating, Congress deserves thanks for at least not driving the economy over the fiscal cliff. Let me state unequivocally that the New Year’s Day deal was a lot better than the alternative, no doubt. That said, a treacherous fiscal obstacle course still looms ahead of us.” — “The Debt Ceiling Is Scarier Than the Fiscal Cliff,” The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 14, 2013

And so on.

Crisis Creation and Perpetuation

Federal agencies are also used to instilling fear and push agendas. Consider:

— The Transportation Security Administration exists only on the “possibility” that some terrorist act might occur at some future point.

— Out of fear over some food-borne diseases – no matter how remote – the Food and Drug Administration writes scores of new “safety” regulations each year (but the agency won’t approve regulations requiring GMO-foods to be labeled).

— Fears first of global cooling in the 1970s then of global warming and climate change in the 1980s and beyond, the Environmental Protection Agency has implemented thousands of regulations aimed at controlling you (while compliant lawmakers shrug innocently and claim they want to help but are powerless to do so).

— And, of course, Congress and the president essentially operate by perpetuating one fearful crisis after another. If it isn’t foreign terrorism, it is fear of domestic terrorism; it’s fear of impending fiscal calamity (without ever really solving the underlying fiscal problems like too much spending). It’s the possibility that we may be attacked at any moment by some third-world dictatorship that justifies more military deployments overseas.

But after a while, a skeptical public gets jaded and is no longer scared (because you can only cry wolf so many times). So it becomes necessary to continuously stoke fear by creating new crises, as explained by Higgs:

Fear is a depreciating asset. …Unless the foretold threat eventuates, the people come to doubt its substance. The government must make up for the depreciation by investing in the maintenance, modernization, and replacement of its stock of fear capital. For example, during the Cold War, the general sense of fear of the Soviets tended to dissipate unless restored by periodic crises, many of which took the form of officially announced or leaked “gaps” between U.S. and Soviet military capabilities: troop-strength gap, bomber gap, missile gap, antimissile gap, first-strike-missile gap, defense-spending gap, thermonuclear-throw-weight gap, and so forth. Lately, a succession of official warnings about possible forms of terrorist attack on the homeland has served the same purpose: keeping the people “vigilant,” which is to say, willing to pour enormous amounts of their money into the government’s bottomless budgetary pits of “defense” and “homeland security.” This same factor helps to explain the drumbeat of fears pounded out by the mass media: besides serving their own interests in capturing an audience, they buy insurance against government punishment by playing along with whatever program of fear-mongering the government is conducting currently…

So, just who is really “ginning up fear” in America? Answer: It isn’t you or me.
