It seems as if the far right politico's, and their wealthy buddies, who have been so blatantly stupid about their need to rig any election that they can, have pushed the lie so hard that their machine to win this last election is coming apart at the seams. And in coming apart at the seams, it is throwing some interesting tidbits out about how the far right actually comports itself in the 'Dark Side' of its negotiations with power and wealth. In many ways, they seem to be operating in secret to bring down the American election system, and undermine the functionality of the Congress, the Administration, and the Supreme Court so the citizen's are frustrated in their attempts to keep democracy alive. Isn't that in the least bit criminal?.

It really is quite incredible, when you actually examine the paperwork, and peruse the FM 3-52 Airspace Control Document, and take the time to understand what it means from the point of view of those who wrote it, that it only takes an OK from our highest officials, because of what they might deem to be a disaster, to over turn all of our protections and thereby allow the military to jump in and rule us with an iron fist: even if it is, supposedly, for a short time. The Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Secretary of Defense, and the Attorney General, and the President, (maybe the president), a governor, a mayor or two, need only to agree, or just present false information, that civil authorities need that military backup and support, and it does not need to be just in case of some natural disaster: it could be because the president, or that high official, has decided, or been convinced by the military leader's themselves, or some group of wealthy businessmen, or the FBI, CIA, NSC, or many others, that certain groups opposing them, or us, are terrorists, or criminals, etc, (maybe not even criminals, but those they think will commit a criminal or terrorist act sometime in the future) and the military will automatically, in a totally preplanned, well thought out, paid for in advance, manner, come in and shoot, and destroy, us first and there will be no real, honest, questions asked later because they will say that the enemy was destroyed!..
I am talking about the military backing up the pigs, at a moments notice, because some rich group of Wall Street Bankster's feels threatened, or intimidated, by citizen's lawfully and peacefully protesting, and marching, and, in general, just making their wishes known in a democratic manner that those bankster's don't like!
Democracy is their Boogeyman!
Let's conduct a thought experiment, and posit that the Occupy Wall St. movement, in Zuccoti park, was a thousand times as large as it was...remember, this is just a thought experiment like Einstein used. Under those circumstances, even the vaunted, and well armored, New York pig department would have been unable to do anything to stop the protest. Considering the sheer size of the protest, and the high value monetary importance of the threatened Wall Street billionaires, just the Governor, the Mayor, and a few upper level officials, based upon complaints and fears from those same, local, ruling oligarch's, could bring the full wrath of the military down upon those protesters. They could have used drones, and missiles, the National Guard, and military style warfare, against protesters, because it had already been approved by the aforementioned 'High Officials' (who actually made the decision to call in the military in the first place) that civilian actions like this represent a military threat to the US. These decisions were probably made in collusion with those same oligarchs, in closed door meetings, in a confidential or secret white paper that no one probably saw but those involved!
We, the People, really do not have to do much more than act like we are going to take back our democracy, locally, and we can, and probably will, get the full force of the law, and if necessary, their military backups, to come down on us to protect the oligarch;s that pay them so well for exactly this kind of protection. It would seem that all democracy's must fall within the approved guidelines of the military that protects them or else they are doomed to become a victim of their own military's avarice and lust for dominance and ultimate power.
Now, the question I would like to ask you is this; is there much, if any, difference between the police mind and the military mind? Is it possible for you to see how it is very possible to see them both as the same mind set? So, the only thing you need do is slowly change the way that local police forces are run to the way that the military runs and the police won't really notice the difference; that difference between being a civil police force or a military one that obeys a different master. Are our police that easily fooled?
But the people will, we must hope, not be fooled in the long run! You must understand that the more the people bring this country back towards constitutional freedoms, and real democracy, the more those who have control of the steering wheel of this country, right now, are going to try to exert their control. They are the plutocrats, or the oligarchs, or just the powerful and wealthy, and they will not hesitate to use the force of repression, or the force of arms, against us, to keep their deathly tight grip on our country;s future.
It becomes very obvious that they have constructed a plan to take control of this country, and they are now carrying that plan forward. One could say that our powerful civilian leaders, in concert with the powerful military leaders, have constructed a plan to completely replace democratic government in case it fails to keep its commitment to the wealthy and powerful military, and civilian, oligarchs. “Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Lord Acton
What more can anyone say than that but “ hang the traitors”!

Can there ever be such a thing as a 'militarily controlled democracy? If it is even remotely possible, then folks, for all counts and purposes, it sure looks like we are headed there, and in a big hurry; if were not there already! What would it, a military controlled democracy, look like from our citizen's perspective? The definitions of some of our most important words, and phrases, would have to change; free would have to become 'approved by the military' as would 'a free press' and 'free speech' equal approval by military censorship tribunals. Our Constitution, and Bill of Rights, would become redefined to have the meanings necessary to keep the military, and its supporters, in power forever, and the citizen in perpetual bondage to that state of affairs! In many ways, if you substitute 'Police control', or 'military policy', for Public policy, and then look to see who is actually formulating that 'public policy' today, it would seem we are almost there now! And when you watch the protests, which those in power, the police and military, and the wealthy, call riots, you can clearly see that what was once our local police have become just an extension of, or just another part of, the military's overweening power. Our Police are being trained as the military, indoctrinated as the military; they are protected by, and backed up by the military, and provided with the latest in military weapons and equipment; and all this not to police a democratic nation and enforce the rules of democracy, but to enforce a military style of law that is being quickly approved by our corporate selected, monetarily elected, militarily effected, lobbyist hugging, representatives, senators, and administration...(did I mention Generals)!
Almost all of what is planned to do to the citizens is planned in secret, mainly, with the excuse that it is keeping the country safe from that 'other powerful nation or group of terrorists' that is so threatening that we must give up our constitutional rights, our most cherished freedoms (like our privacy, or protesting, gathering, and marching together), and our democracy, just to protect ourselves from it, or them; from the boogeyman! When the planning is done publicly, meaning we know it is happening, it is accompanied by so much rhetoric, and obfuscation, and secrecy, that it borders upon being just a pack of approved military/politico lies that always ends us up in another stupid war!
American democracy is becoming very much like the Israeli form of government, what ever that is, minus the religious controls but with all of the religious/political rhetoric. Our present day political leaders just love the Israeli government's governing style because the ability to use censorship of the press, rhetoric, lies, and deception, gives them so much power over a very powerful US citizenry that might, or probably would, oppose them in their heinous undertakings. The Israeli style of government is also well liked because it creates no ethical or moral dilemmas when it comes to the destruction, and imprisonment, and torture, of whole nations of women and children and old people! I call them undertakings because their main aim is to prepare a living democracy for its own death and burial! I call their undertakings heinous because they are treasonous, treacherous, unethical, immoral, and insane!
How about a 'heavily protected by the military' Democracy? Doesn't that sound kind of like what we have going on here in the good old USA today? How large the military's budget is (all of it,even the hidden part) and what it is used for, compared to those important institutions that make democracy even possible will show, without much doubt, just how intertwined with our freedoms our multi-trillion dollar a year military protections actually are, and what we are having to give up in the way of constitutional protections for this level of military protection that, in hind sight (9/11) turns out to be not much protection at all. And again, once the military gets so large, just exactly how do you tell this super paranoid, super nuclear, powerhouse to stand down with the preparations for war all of the time? They have become more powerful than the government! Who tells who what now a days? The military's want to assume more and more power and control; and by the way, these types of actions do not promote strong democratic principles or even help to build a strong economy!
Democratic nations cannot use these military style governments to protect themselves without losing their democracy to that powerful military, so they must use their own people, in a democratically chosen manner, to protect them when they are attacked from without, or from within. We called that the 'Draft'! When a democracy develops a private, powerful, military it must eventually place its civilian leaders under the wing of the military's protection, thereby subordinating democracy, and the rule of law, to military power and military law. It is an algorithm that works just like multiplication, or subtraction, or division! Human nature, and stupidity, allows it to work while a developed sense of social intelligence within the population will stop it cold, and dead, in its tracks. Only a free and uncensored media will allow a developed sense of citizen social intelligence to flower into democracy. Democracy's cannot control mercenary army's!
When the military becomes too powerful back home, the protection of its power, and getting finances for its weaponry and personnel become more important than the democracy's existence and it becomes a military/police state. Eventually, that powerful military will exert needed force at home to make sure that the citizens comply, and know what is good for them! This is the point where the military leaders become ready to use their military power to make sure they stay in power, and increase their power.
This is about where we, in the USA, are today in relation to our political leaders, our police, and our very powerful military. It, the military/police philosophy, has a grip, because it is so powerfully based on fear, so that it works just like strong Mafia control! Democracy cannot exist under these constraints, not even for a little while! It becomes, in the worst ways, a 'do as you are told' type of 'petty' police state that pathetically wails its call of fake democracy over and over again with its own filthy bull horn and those ever present weapons of war pointed at you and your children! This' calling itself a democracy' game becomes the basis for every form of heinous activity that you cannot even imagine. Those in power will resort to the worst types of actions, empowered by secrecy, too hold onto and consolidate even more power and wealth. The political and social tools most often used in a democratic situation are discarded and assassination of one's opponents, and enemies, and large parts of civil society, become the norm for those in power to use.
Interestingly enough, our prisons and jails are already filled, to the point of having to build more, with political dissidents, political protesters political activists, simple drug users, journalists, and whistle blowers, but to name a few. These incarcerated are the outspoken ones who were not afraid to speak power to power in the sleeping American people's name!
Are the American people asleep, or have they been hypnotized, mesmerized, and basically beaten to a pulp by the private economic/corporate/military powers running out of control thanks to their governments giving up of its powers to the wealthy and powerful who run industry and the military? It is a mouthful, but read through it again, and see if you can improve it. Thank you.
