    BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU – We are the sheep they are the wolves.

    PROTOCOL NUMBER XI
    “The goyim are a pack of sheep, and we are their wolves. You know what Happens when wolves get hold of the flock…There is another reason they will close their eyes: for we shall keep promising to give back their liberties we have taken away as soon as we have quelled the enemies of peace…God has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of dispersion, and in this which appears in all eyes to be our weakness, has come forth all our strength, which has now brought us to the threshold of sovereignty over all the world.” (UNQ)

    Spies “R” Us
    by Stephen Lendman
    May 15, 2013

    A previous article discussed institutionalized spying on Americans. Anyone can be monitored for any reason or none at all.
    Manufactured national security threats, silencing dissent, targeting whistleblowers, and challenging press freedom subvert constitutional rights.
    Doing so is worse than ever now. Obama bears full responsibility. He governs by diktat authority. He’s waging war on humanity. He’s spurning fundamental rights. He’s targeting press freedom.
    James Madison understood the threat, saying:
    “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or tragedy, or perhaps both.”
    Harry Truman once said:
    “When even one American – who has done nothing wrong – is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril.” ………………….

    THE USA PATRIOT ACT AND THE POLITICS OF FEAR

    http://web.indstate.edu/ccj/crinst/hamm.pdf

    “…….The USA Patriot Act–an acronym for United and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism–gives far-reaching new powers to both the FBI and international intelligence agencies, based on revisions of fifteen different statutes. It also eliminates the checks and balances that previously gave courts the opportunity to ensure that these powers were not abused.

    Among its provisions, the 342-page Act grants the Justice Department the authority to: (1) share foreign intelligence surveillance information, (2) increase penalties for money laundering, (3) seize foreign assets in U.S.-based accounts of foreign banks if there is probable cause that the funds were obtained illegally, and (4) place stricter controls on immigration, including the authority to detain non-citizens without a hearing, and to deport immigrants without any evidence that they have committed a crime. For U.S. citizens and non-citizens alike, the Act also grants Justice the authority to: (5) tap telephones, e-mail messages, and personal computer hard drives (including roving wiretaps), without a legal probable cause, (6) request private and personal business and bank records, without a court hearing, and (7) solicit a patron’s list of library books. The Act also allows the Justice Department to: (8) investigate a person who is not suspected of a crime and/or is not the target of a terrorist investigation, (9) secretly conduct “sneak-and-peek” searches without a warrant, (10) withhold the names and other information about individuals arrested and detained, (11) hold closed hearings, and (12) monitor jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients. Finally, the Act (13) creates a new definition of domestic terrorism, (14) gives government the power to designate domestic groups, including religious and political groups, as “terrorist organizations,” and (15) expands the authority of the President to designate individuals as “enemy combatants.”

    According to the Justice Department, these expanded powers are necessary because “the threat presented by terrorists who carried out the September 11 attacks required a different kind of law enforcement approach….The Department needed to disrupt such persons from carrying out further attacks by turning its focus to prevention, rather than investigation and prosecution.”

    If the kettle is full and the pot empty then the kettle would be within its rights. Who do the pot and the kettle chacterise?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empty_vessel

    Empty vessel or the empty vessel approach is a term describing the negative effects of how one ends up with a worthless outcome when trying to please everyone. The term is more commonly used in psychology and behavior analysis. Worthlessness cannot be measured, but there will be consensus among the participants that the end product does not even come close to the previously desired outcome.

    In business, the “empty vessel approach” can be characterized by lack of leadership and unwillingness for the members to take individual responsibility. Larger corporations with many mid-level managers are more easily trapped in this negative spiral where the company essentially becomes a “meeting company”, where most of the employee’s time is wasted away in meetings instead of actually making products or providing services.

    THE EFFECTS PRODUCED BY CLIMATE ON THE DIFFERENT FORMS OF GOVERNMENT.
    The Sydney Herald, thursday 2 April 1835
    http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/12851824?

    “……..When South America was first discovered by the Europeans, the hereditary tyranny of their kings was regularly organized ; and the whole adherents of royalty were luxuriantly supported by taxes laid on the people.
    What a contrast was the situation of the Indians in North America. Free as air, under no control but that authorized by themselves ; their chiefs all elective, and hunting and providing for themselves after they became chiefs, as there was no taxation or revenue to keep them.
    But in North America, the presence of a winter, more or less long, placed many difficulties in the way of procuring a surplus produce necessary to maintain hereditary chiefs or kings, while at the same time the winter rendered foresight and reflection necessary, to provide for the time that the earth did not produce ;
    whereas the climate of South America, a perpetual summer, rendered the production of the necessary surplus easy, and obtained with little labour, and therefore given with equal facility by the thoughtless inhabitants to their rulers; which enabled them to hire troops and embody crowds of servants to keep the mass of the people in subjection, and establish tyranny, by making it the interest of a part to domineer over the whole…………”
