Publisher’s Note: There is no possible way to fix what the USSA has slouched into. Trump will not save it. The deep state is married to tyranny, absent the ability to regulate horizontally and vertically every taxable entity it tracks and the ability to expand their power. Absent that, it has no purpose. The government and the country are now one indeterminate entity. Every Helot on the massive plantation mill about thinking they are free. They are wrong.
The next time you wonder at any of your freedoms abridged, extinguished or curtailed, thank a cop.
There is no political actor on Earth who can deny one freedom or abridge one scrap of individual freedom. They need the police. -BB
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The federal government apparatus in America has de facto and de jure federalized all police forces. All the cheap talk by the race hooligans of every pigmentation is fatuous and disingenuous at best.
There is no political actor in Washington who has even challenged the narrative and script that every government supremacist edict in America descends from the Feds. Trump will not change this.
All government is based on theft through taxation.The forcible transfer of your wealth or your friends and families from one pocket to that of the undeserving and unearned. Thousands of years of human barbarism posing as the state testify to this.
Don’t believe it? If overnight, all speeding infractions only garnered insurance points and no filthy loot for the road pirates to obediently collect for their political masters, what would highway patrols and cops do?
As a matter a fact, if all “illegal” drugs become decriminalized overnight, what would the 19,000 police departments strewn like landmines and unexploded ordnance across the fruited plain do.
If every law on the books whose sole victim was the state was removed and decriminalized over the next few days, what would these overfed and trigger-happy Leninists do?
Police forces don’t exist in a vacuum. They have one sole purpose: to enforce the bloody spear-point of the will of their political puppet-masters. Planet-wide, that is the one true function.
From the blunted secession movements like Vermont and Texas to the Drug War to the increasing militarization of the thin black and blue line, one thing becomes crystal clear: the police in the 19,000 departments across America are simply the pointy end (if not intellectually dull and diminished) of all politics. This isn’t simply an American phenomenon. It’s planet-wide and historically correct that absent these armed and uniformed thug forces, no political bad actor could deprive one human being of their liberty and individual volition.
The news and the interwebs are packed with stories and analysis on the emerging police state that is blanketing America. I have written extensively as has the brilliant William Grigg on the morbid details of the police state in all of its grotesque and totalitarian glory.
Now we hear the usual suspects in the government media complex mewling and writing in panic at a war on police. No such war exists, yet.
This is the world the “war on cops” has made; one in which police kill unarmed people regularly yet claim to be under attack themselves. Even as some high-profile commentators have proclaimed that Black Lives Matter, they still act as if police lives matter more. Pundits who lament the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile protest the “horrific murders” and “cold-blooded killings” of police in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Were Sterling and Castile’s deaths not horrific? Why is there no attention to the blood temperature of the officers who killed a 37-year-old man for selling CDs on a sidewalk or who pulled over a 32-year-old man for a broken taillight and a “wide-set nose” and ended up shooting him to death in front of his girlfriend and her four-year-old child?
As of this date, the cops have stacked up hundreds of corpses murdered this year in the streets (this number does not include what I suspect is much larger corpse-count in the vast Federal and satrap gulag system across the country). I have to make my standard disclaimer that I think this is highly suspect as a lower number due to mis-, under- and non-reporting by the authorities on these Helots murdered across the country. Of course, British newspaper has to provide the numbers because the fiscally strapped Feds can’t bother with maintaining such a database.
