Season of the Snitch Tags: surveillance Police State

By freefall

Contributor, ZenGardner.com

History has shown that in order for tyranny to fully permeate a society, the people must be duped into policing themselves. This may change someday due to advanced technology in which surveillance of the masses can be accomplished by machines monitoring machines, but I suppose that, well into the future, the controllers will still require at least a small number of humanoid life-forms to fine tune the equipment.

Soon after starting at one of my last jobs, I discovered that my co-workers had been told by our boss to report back to him if they (my co-workers) thought I was doing anything wrong on the job.

Now if my fellow wage slaves were to see that I was not doing my job properly in the normal course of business and relayed this to the boss, that I could understand. But it wasn’t about that. It was about creating an environment of distrust by turning the workers against each other. For all I know, my boss was probably told to do this by his boss!

Once I found out about this, I told them what they could do with their job. The same goes for the entire career track; I no longer want anything to do with it. In order to keep my paycheck, they would have eventually made the same thing out of me anyway.

The most recent example where I have personally witnessed this type of behavior is in my neighborhood. Somebody “ratted out” a couple of my neighbors for having a fence that was too high. These neighbors had the high fence because they both had large gardens in their yards and had been unsuccessful in keeping the deer out of them. From what I understand, even the code enforcers felt bad about this one. But, of course, they had to enforce it to make it “fair” for everyone.

This is America today. “If you see something, say something.” It doesn’t matter if you see something that means nothing. The man in the Ohio Walmart store that was killed by the SWAT team for carrying around an “assault weapon” which ended up being an empty pellet gun taken off the rack at the store is a good example. Maybe they should have given the person who called it in a key to the city for such a courageous act. He could share it with those brave trained killers who understood the situation no more than he did.

The snitch mentality appears to be popping up everywhere these days, even when the informant doesn’t get anything out of it. How much worse will it be when they do?

When the dollar collapses and the people who didn’t see it coming are caught totally unprepared, what are the chances that they will rat out those who did? I’m sure that their masters will be happy to reward them by giving them some of their neighbor’s supplies once the “prepper” has been taken away to the FEMA camp.

But I suppose that we shouldn’t be surprised. When living in a country that has never learned to mind its own business concerning the affairs of people in other countries, how much less will it tolerate the affairs of others in their own?

Isn’t this the reason for all of these crime laws that have no victims? There are so many laws now that most of us break them without even knowing it. Could they get away with this insanity if we weren’t already living on a rat ship?

For those preppers out there, best to keep your mouth shut about what you have acquired. Even those you thought were your friends could end up turning on you in order to get something for themselves.

But I leave all the “rats” out there with this reminder: Due to your behavior which has been instrumental in turning this country into a giant jailhouse, you should keep in mind how your fellow inmates have always dealt with snitches once they have been discovered.

 

 

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC Tags: Ebola quarantine Kaci Hickox intelligence officer

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC

(NaturalNews) Nurse Kaci Hickox, who has made headlines over the last few days by refusing to quarantine herself after returning from the Ebola front lines in Africa, turns out to have been trained as an "intelligence officer" under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.

As you can see from the document below, Hickox graduated from a two-year CDC intelligence officer training program in 2012. This is the same nurse whose LinkedIn page was recently scrubbed to hide her ties to the CDC, an agency that stands to benefit tremendously in both political power and budgets if an Ebola outbreak sweeps across America.

The official intelligence designation granted to Nurse Hickox by the CDC was "Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer," and she is a graduate of the 2012 EIS program according to this CDC document (PDF). (See page 138 - 139 for her name and photo, or view photo below.)

That same year, the CDC graduated 81 such "intelligence officers" whose names and photos are also listed in the public document.


 

The CDC models its operations after the U.S. military

What is a CDC intelligence officer? To understand the answer, you first have to realize that the CDC models itself after the U.S. military which is why CDC "officers" wear military costumes when appearing before Congress, complete with shoulder stripes, stars and badges.

Just as with the U.S. Army, the CDC also has "intelligence officers" whose jobs include gathering intelligence, analyzing intelligence and conducting counterintelligence ops. The CDC's sanitized description of this job is found on this web page which states:

EIS officers are on the public health frontlines, conducting epidemiologic investigations, research, and public health surveillance both nationally and internationally.

That same page shows a photograph of a CDC intelligence officer wearing a military costume, complete with multiple stars on the shirt collar and a military-style name tag. These are symbols used to project the appearance of authority by adopting military dress even though the CDC isn't even under the command of the Dept. of Defense.

The uniforms are just one sign of the militarization of the CDC, an organization so steeped in delusional theatrics that it still won't admit sneeze particles can travel farther than 3 feet or that Ebola actually has a 42-day incubation period, not the 21 days we are repeatedly told.
 

Serving the public, or endangering it?

With all this said, why is a CDC-trained intelligence officer screaming so loudly about putting herself into a home quarantine for 21 days to reduce the risk of transmitting Ebola to other Americans? If the CDC is supposed to be serving the public, then why is this CDC-trained intelligence officer clearly abandoning any real concern for public safety by refusing to comply with a sensible self-quarantine rule?

"I don't plan on sticking to the guidelines," she said in a Today interview. [1] "I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me... I'm not going to sit around and be bullied around by politicians and be forced to stay in my home when I am not a risk to the American public."

These are not the words of a concerned, ethically-driven epidemiologist. They are the words of a CDC intelligence operative who has been trained in the art of information warfare. Her words reflect the aims of the CDC which has openly opposed all sensible pandemic protections for Americans.

America's most important medical decisions, in other words, are right now being influenced by an intelligence operative trained by the CDC under a two-year program modeled after the military.

Are her actions and words now starting to make a lot more sense?

New national security laws pave way for 'police state', says Andrew Wilkie Tags: Police state security laws whistle blower National security

National security legislation reforms a 'distraction'

Greens MP Adam Bandt, independent MP Andrew Wilkie and Labor MP Melissa Parke react in parliament to the federal government's proposed changes to national security laws.

Former intelligence whistleblower turned federal MP Andrew Wilkie has accused the federal government of exploiting fears about terrorism to rush through new national security laws that push Australia towards a "police state".

The government's first tranche of national security changes passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday with the support of the Labor opposition, although one Labor backbencher broke ranks to speak out against the laws.

Tasmanian independent Mr Wilkie, Victorian independent Cathy McGowan and Greens MP Adam Bandt all voted against the laws, which passed on the voices.

The laws include jail terms of up to 10 years for journalists who disclose details of ASIO "special intelligence operations" and provide immunity from criminal prosecution for intelligence officers who commit a crime in the course of their duties.


ASIO can apply for the computer warrants to be issued and they can only be authorised by the Attorney-General, who is currently George Brandis QC.Under the laws, ASIO officers will also be able to access, modify, disrupt or alter an unlimited number of computers on a computer network with a single warrant, which many have feared could allow the entire internet to be monitored, as it is a "network of networks".

Mr Wilkie said he was especially concerned the laws would encourage ASIO officers to use force without the "inconvenience" of including trained Australian Federal Police officers in their operations.

"At some point in the future we'll have spies kicking in doors and using force with no police alongside them and that is another step towards a police state," he said.

"Why is the government – with the opposition's support – wanting to overreach like this?

"I can only assume the government is wanting to capitalise on and exploit the current security environment. I can only assume that the security agencies are delighted they have been invited to fill in a blank cheque.

"It is clearly overreach by the security services who have basically been invited to write an open cheque. And the government, which wants to beat its chest and look tough on national security, said, 'We'll sign that'.

"And the opposition, which is desperate to look just as tough on national security, said, 'We'll countersign that cheque too'."

Mr Wilkie said the new penalties for journalists and whistleblowers who disclose details of "special intelligence operations" (SIOs) amounted to the government "bullying" the media into more compliant reporting.

"This is clamping down on free speech; this is clamping down on oversight of what the security agencies are up to," he said.

"This is absolutely disgraceful," Mr Wilkie said, who was a former whistlerblower who warned Australia not to go to the Iraq war as there was no evidence of weapons of mass destruction.

Labor backbencher and member for Fremantle, Melissa Parke, also spoke out against the bill, breaking ranks with her colleagues.

"I do not support a number of key elements in this bill, and I am aware there are further even more controversial bills coming before the Parliament in the near future," she said.

"There has not been convincing evidence of inadequacies in the existing legal framework that warrant the broad extensions of powers we see here," she added.

"I am particularly concerned that this bill entrenches and amplifies the lack of protection for whistleblowers regarding intelligence information and penalises with up to 10 years jail the legitimate actions of journalists and others doing their jobs in holding the government to account in the public interest."

Greens deputy leader Adam Bandt raised concerns that the media would not be able to report on innocent bystanders killed under bungled SIOs.

"If these laws pass, our security agencies could inadvertently kill an innocent bystander and journalists would not be able to report on it," Mr Bandt said.

He also raised concerns about journalists being put behind bars for up to ten years for revealing the existence of an SIOs.

"People could go to jail under this! People could go to jail under this legislation," Bant yelled.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan said the government made "no apologies" for trying to protect the secrecy of covert intelligence operations.

"This is not, as has been wrongly suggested, about preventing the release of information that might simply embarrass the government of the day or expose it to criticism," he said.

"This is about providing a necessary and proportionate limitation on the communication of information that relates to the core business of intelligence agencies. And I need hardly add that unauthorised disclosures of intelligence-related information, particularly on the scale that is now possible in the online environment, can have devastating consequences for a country's international relationships, a country's intelligence capabilities and very importantly for the lives and safety of intelligence personnel."

Shadow attorney-general Mark Dryfus said the new laws were justified and carefully-targeted, but the government had not explained them well to the community.

"I must say that in the case of the SIO scheme the government has not explained itself well," he said. "It has allowed some misunderstandings of what this legislation enables to gain currency."

Mr Drefus said Labor had demanded amendments so that only journalists who knowingly disclose details about secret counter-terrorism and counter-surveillance operations would face persecution.

"The community should be reassured of the limited scope of the offence provisions," he said.

"Labor would not and will not ever support laws which prevent journalists who report on security and related matters from doing their jobs."

"No-one can inadvertently breach this provision. But where journalists are aware of the possibility of endangering ASIO officers we expect them to act responsibly.

"These laws will not criminalise the good-faith activities of journalists."

Crossbencher Ms McGowan said, "It is not a time to rush through legislation. This is a time for considered approach, this is a time when we should be our best selves as the Prime Minister reminds us."
