Authorization for Use of Military Force … On YOU

)(

AUMF 2001 (PL 107-40) did not target the “terrorists” behind the 9/11 attacks. Its target was and is the taxpaying American citizen. Here are the only two ways to take yourself out of the crosshairs.

)(

If you ask most Americans how many World Trade Center towers were demolished on 9/11, they’ll say 2. The correct answer is 3. If you remind them that WTC-7 came down as well as WTC-1 and WTC-2, and then ask them how many World Trade Center towers were struck by airplanes or seriously damaged by debris, they’ll usually say 3. The correct answer is 2. Remind them of THAT, however, and you are immediately labelled a 9/11 truther or conspiracy nut.

The “truth” may well be, however, that most Americans simply don’t want to think about what really happened at World Trade Center 7 and elsewhere on 11 September 2001 because it forces them to question either (a) the laws of physics and logic or (b) what they were told happened by their government. The cognitive dissonance generated is too much for their media-brainwashed minds to handle, so they block it out and you along with it.

The “truth” is that many things happened before, on and after 9/11 that we have been encouraged – if not programmed – to forget. One is the “Authorization for Use of Military Force” signed into law by Dubya on 18 September 2001 as Public Law 107-40. Allegedly intended to authorize retaliation against the “9/11 terrorists” – and not unlike the 1933 Enabling Act that paved the way for Adolf Hitler to become dictator of Nazi Germany – this brief resolution gave our President carte blanche authority that has been used, abused and expanded over the past 11 years to the point where the “Imperial Presidency” of Barack Obama now claims the power to kill anyone anywhere – including American citizens on American soil – without the approval of Congress, and without due process of law.

That alone should be sufficient reason for We the People to rise up and demand repeal of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (aka “AUMF 2001”, “AUMF”, or on Twitter “#AUMF”). But the evil of this unconstitutional foundation for a fascist police state doesn’t end there: AUMF 2001 is also the asserted legal basis for Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 signed into law by Odrona on 31 December 2011 as Public Law 112-81. This “Homeland Battlefield” provision gives the federal government authority to detain without charge and hold indefinitely without trial American citizens on American soil – the same “indefinite detention” applied to prisoners at Guantanamo – which nullifies habeas corpus and overrides the Bill of Rights.

IF WE REPEAL AUMF 2001 WE ALSO UNDO NDAA 2012. Passing and signing into law intact “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force” – not to be confused with other H.R. 198’s from prior Congressional sessions – will do just that. And as a not-so-small added benefit, passing H.R. 198 will force the child-murdering Nobel Peace Prize pretender in the White House to bring down his drones and end the perpetual global “War on Terrorism” – which has never been anything more than an excuse for the Military Industrial Complex to deplete the U.S. Treasury, with the costs of war in Afghanistan and Iraq alone approaching $6 trillion, which accounts for over 35% of our national debt and amounts to over $19,000 for every man, woman and child in America.

In TwitterSpeak, all we have to do is pass #HR198 to #RepealAUMF and we reign in the unconstitutional #AUMF #ImperialPresidency, undo #NDAA #IndefiniteDetention, bring down the unacceptably inhumane #drones, end the unaffordably insane #GWOT and force the unimaginably greedy #MilitaryIndustrialComplex to stop depleting an already-drained #USTreasury and running up the #USDebt. Who wouldn’t want to do that?

Just about everybody on Wall Street (Greed Central), K Street (Lobbyist Lane), in Congress (Corporate Fascist Puppets Left and Right) and at the White House (Office of the Corporate Fascist Puppet-in-Chief). That’s who.

Sponsored by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (@RepBarbaraLee) – the only U.S. Representative to vote against AUMF in 2001 – H.R. 198 has only 8 co-sponsors at present and is currently stalled in the House Foreign Affairs Committee (@HFACrepublicans). Pundits give H.R. 198 a zero chance of passage and here is why:

  • The Democratic Party doesn’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because it will take away power that their figurehead leader Barack Obama is fighting Chris Hedges et al in federal court to keep.
  • The Republican Party doesn’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because they get to cash in on that power when they rotate back into the White House. And it truly is a staged rotation: of the last 14 U.S. Presidents 7 have been Democrats and 7 Republicans.
  • Lockheed-Martin and the other corrupt fat cat defense contractors comprising the rotten core of the Military Industrial Complex don’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because ending our endless wars will cost them trillions in future revenues. Their legions of lobbyists stand to lose big bucks as well.
  • Bankers on Wall Street and worldwide thrive on interest. Interest is generated by debt. More debt means more interest. And as the tally about reflects, nothing creates more debt faster than war: debt to make the weapons, debt to buy the weapons, debt to wage the war, and debt to recover from war’s awful toll of death and destruction. Like all wars, the War on Terrorism is a bankers’ war. Obviously the banksters would not want to see it ended by the passage of H.R. 198 and repeal of AUMF 2001.

The “truth” is that the real target of the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force was not Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda or any other “terrorists” real or contrived. The real target of the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force was and is YOU, the American citizen and taxpayer. There are only two ways to take yourself out of the crosshairs:

  1. Join us in the AUMF Hunger Strike (#AumfHungerStrike) to (a) awaken 100 million Americans now living in poverty and as many of the self-absorbed and techno-stupefied Sheeple as we can, and (b) inspire them to take direct action to demand action by their Senators and Representives to pass H.R. 198 over the cries of the war profiteers and their lobbyists as well as an almost certain veto by Odrona; or
  2. Do what you know Thomas Jefferson would recommend we do…

“The 99%” Redefined: 99 Percent of Americans Know Little About the Dangers of AUMF 2001 & NDAA 2012

According to an #AumfHungerStrike activist 99% of Americans have no idea they can be detained indefinitely without charge under NDAA 2012 Section 1021, and then executed without trial under AUMF 2001.

)(

American grandfather, long distance rider, civil liberties Jeffersonian and AUMF Hunger Striker IronBoltBruce conservatively estimates that (a) 90 percent of the American public are unaware they can be indefinitely detained without charge or trial under NDAA 2012 Section 1021 (Public Law 112-81), and (b) 90 percent of those are unaware they can be executed without due process of law under AUMF 2001 (Public Law 107-40, the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force). If accurate that means (a) only 1 in 100 Americans are aware of their potential loss of life or liberty under these fascist and unconstitutional Bill of Rights and habeas corpus nullifications, and (b) the deer-in-the-headlights obliviousness of the remainder of our citizens provides a whole new definition for “The 99 Percent”.

The legality of the NDAA 2012 indefinite detention provisions is dependent upon the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force. If we repeal AUMF, we undo NDAA at the same time. H.R. 198 is proposed legislation that will do just that. The bill will also bring an end to over 11 years of a so-called “War on Terrorism” that has generated trillions in revenues for defense contractors and the banksters behind the curtains at the cost of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives abroad and a bankrupted Treasury at home. It stands to reason, then, that these corporate interests may go to any lengths – including payoffs, psyops and perhaps even black ops – to prevent the passage of any legislation that might kill the war profiteering cash cow of our Military Industrial Complex.

Passing H.R. 198 intact or otherwise repealing AUMF 2001 will not be an easy battle, but it is a battle that We the People must fight – if not for our own sake, then for the freedom and future of our children and grandchildren. To win that battle, we will have to overcome powerful banking, defense, intelligence, counterterrorism and homeland security lobbies by making their puppet politicians in Washington more afraid of losing control of the country than they are of losing the corporate cash flowing into their personal coffers. That will require a resurgence of Sixties-style in-the-streets IRL activism which we can generate by mobilizing the 100 million Americans now living in poverty and waking up as many of the rest as we can. They cannot be aware without also being angry, and to raise that awareness we have initiated a nationwide AUMF Hunger Strike for which we need not only your support but your participation.

One Percenter Erin Burnett: OutFront Corporate Fascist and Iran War Drumbeater

Erin Burnett: OutFront Fascist

Ten years ago, most Americans believed Saddam Hussein had WMDs. Today, most Americans believe Iran has nuclear weapons. And once again, Big Lie propagandists like Erin Burnett are (mis)leading us into war.

ONE PERCENTER ERIN BURNETT: OUTFRONT CORPORATE FASCIST AND IRAN WAR DRUMBEATER

Various versions have been circulating for weeks, but if there’s anyone left in America who hasn’t seen the video of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Persian posse strolling around in those white lab coats that our perpetual war profiteers want us to believe are clear indications of their diabolical nuclear capabilities, they can view it here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=httHhaIRGYE

Note that CNN uploaded this video to YouTube on February 15th with the white-on-red “LIVE” text overlay intact. It wasn’t “live” then, it wasn’t “live” any of the other countless times they’ve aired it since then, and it wasn’t “live” on March 2nd when la femme fasciste Erin Burnett had it looping in background as she beat her incessant Iran War drum on the Friday evening edition of “OutFront”.

In his recent posting entitled “Insinuation as War Propaganda,” Anthony Gregory noted that in 2003 the massive media propaganda buildup leading to Bush Iraq War II had 70% of Americans believing Saddam Hussein – that “evil dictator” we once armed but ultimately executed without ever finding the arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) our talking heads guaranteed were about to rain down upon us – was personally behind 9/11. He then observed that today, barely nine years later, 71% of those same gullible boob tube couch potatoes now believe that Iran has nuclear weapons:

http://blog.independent.org/2012/02/23/insinuation-as-war-propaganda/

And they believe that despite the fact that in a January 2012 interview on “Face the Nation” former CIA Director and now Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta clearly stated that Iran has no nuclear weapons and no intentions of developing any:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdiGahJItOA

And why do they believe that? Because the global corporate fascist elite that controls our government – and since Citizens United our elections – also controls the military industrial complex and mainstream media. Through the propagation and perpetuation of war, they generate profits by using the one to feed the other. But to make war they must first “manufacture consent,” because the money-making war machines of the 1 percent cannot operate without the willing cooperation and support of the other 99. And of the many modern-day Goebbels “Big Lie” propagandists paid to sell their false flag ops and other fictions to the frequently fooled, few are more “out front” about it than CNN’s Erin Burnett. As Glenn Greenwald observed:

“I just could not let go unnoted this commentary on The Iranian Threat by CNN’s Erin Burnett (“frightening,” she observed). I barely know what to say about it – the critiques of media fear-mongering I wrote the last two days apply in spades to this – but it really just mocks itself. It’s the sort of thing you would produce if you set out to create a mean-spirited parody of mindless, war-hungry, fear-mongering media stars, but you wouldn’t dare go this far because you’d want the parody to have a feel of realism to it, and this would be way too extreme to be believable. She really hauled it all out: WMDs! Terrorist sleeper cells in the U.S. controlled by Tehran! Iran’s long-range nuclear missiles reaching our homeland!!!! She almost made the anti-Muslim war-mongering fanatic she brought on to interview, Rep. Peter King, appear sober and reasonable by comparison.”

http://www.salon.com/2012/02/17/erin_burnett_worst_of_the_worst/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUS6su29SqI

Obviously Erin Burnett is not an objective journalist, just as some say much of what CNN reports is not objective news. Erin Burnett is an alum of Citigroup, one of America’s four largest banks, and a major beneficiary of the taxpayer-funded TARP “Too Big To Fail” Bailout. Erin Burnett is also an alum of Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street giant whose corrupt practices are considered a key causative factor in the global financial meltdown of 2008, and who willingly and easily paid $500 million to settle SEC charges of defrauding investors with their subprime mortgage scams. And Erin Burnett is a current member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), considered by many to be America’s more powerful foreign policy think-tank, and denounced by some as a proponent of “one world government” and instrument of the “new world order.”

Erin Burnett is a One Percenter. Should we be surprised that delivering their message is her mission?

Outlawing the Occupy Movement: H.R. 347 Makes Free Speech A Felony

HR 347: Free Speech Is Now A Felony

Once signed, HR 347 will empower federal agents to arrest and bring felony criminal charges against citizens engaged in political protests anywhere in the USA.

OUTLAWING THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT: HR 347 MAKES FREE SPEECH A FELONY

The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads as follows:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

At 7:03pm ET on Tuesday, 28 February 2012, our 112th Congress violated this covenant with the American people by voting 399 to 3 in favor of H.R. 347, a bill which breezed through the Senate with unanimous consent and now lacks only corporate fascist puppet President Barack Obama’s signature to become law. The three patriots who voted Nay were Paul Broun (R-GA-10), Justin Amash (R-MI-3) and Ron Paul (R-TX-14). The traitors who voted Yea are listed here:

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2011-149

http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

Euphemistically titled the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act” and referred to by our corporate-controlled mainstream media as a “non-controversial bill”, a more truthful moniker for HR 347 would be the “First Amendment Rights Eradication Act”. As Representative Amash lamented on his Facebook page:

“Current law makes it illegal to enter or remain in an area where certain government officials (more particularly, those with Secret Service protection) will be visiting temporarily if and only if the person knows it’s illegal to enter the restricted area but does so anyway. [H.R. 347] expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect it’s illegal… [And to] show you the extent to which the public is misled and misinformed about the legislation we are voting on, read one prominent media outlet’s coverage of the same bill:

http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/house/212873-house-approves-white-house-trespass-bill-sends-to-obama

The report mischaracterizes not only current law but also the changes proposed by the bill.”

The full text of H.R. 347 is available here:

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h112-347

Obviously aimed at the Occupy Movement, these modifications to U.S. Code Title 18 Section 1752 will seriously diminish the right of American citizens to petition their Government for a redress of grievances by outlawing protests where key government officials or other VIP’s may be nearby. Federal law enforcement agents will be empowered to bring these charges against Americans engaged in political protests anywhere in the country, and violators will face criminal penalties that include imprisonment for up to 10 years.

Welcome to Fourth Reich Amerika…

NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!

In Post-NDAA Amerika, What is a Terrorist and Who Can Make You Disappear by Calling You One?

Suspected Terrorist

IN POST NDAA AMERIKA, WHAT IS A TERRORIST AND WHO CAN MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BY CALLING YOU ONE?

Since corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law this past New Year’s Eve (NDAA: Public Law 112-81), the powers of indefinite detention claimed under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF: Public Law 107-40) have been codified. Now the mere suspicion of being a “terrorist” is sufficient grounds for an American citizen – on American soil – to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge or trial. Obvious questions of constitutionality aside, this should prompt at least the cautious to ask questions like the following:

1. What is the legal definition of “terrorist”?

2. Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

To answer the first question, we searched the online version of the United States Code – “the codification of the general and permanent laws of the United States” – for a definition of “terrorist”. And to our amazement, we didn’t find one. Over 400 references to “terrorist” in the USC, yes. But a specific definition, no. What we did find is this:

Title 8 Section 1182(a)(3)(B) defines “terrorist activity” but not “terrorist”:

(iii) “Terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “terrorist activity” means any activity which is unlawful under the laws of the place where it is committed (or which, if it had been committed in the United States, would be unlawful under the laws of the United States or any State) and which involves any of the following: (I) The highjacking or sabotage of any conveyance (including an aircraft, vessel, or vehicle). (II) The seizing or detaining, and threatening to kill, injure, or continue to detain, another individual in order to compel a third person (including a governmental organization) to do or abstain from doing any act as an explicit or implicit condition for the release of the individual seized or detained. (III) A violent attack upon an internationally protected person (as defined in section 1116(b)(4) of title 18) or upon the liberty of such a person. (IV) An assassination. (V) The use of any – (a) biological agent, chemical agent, or nuclear weapon or device, or (b) explosive, firearm, or other weapon or dangerous device (other than for mere personal monetary gain), with intent to endanger, directly or indirectly, the safety of one or more individuals or to cause substantial damage to property. (VI) A threat, attempt, or conspiracy to do any of the foregoing. (iv) “Engage in terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “engage in terrorist activity” means, in an individual capacity or as a member of an organization – (I) to commit or to incite to commit, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; (II) to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; (III) to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; (IV) to solicit funds or other things of value for – (aa) a terrorist activity; (bb) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;

(V) to solicit any individual – (aa) to engage in conduct otherwise described in this subsection; (bb) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III) unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization; or

(VI) to commit an act that the actor knows, or reasonably should know, affords material support, including a safe house, transportation, communications, funds, transfer of funds or other material financial benefit, false documentation or identification, weapons (including chemical, biological, or radiological weapons), explosives, or training – (aa) for the commission of a terrorist activity; (bb) to any individual who the actor knows, or reasonably should know, has committed or plans to commit a terrorist activity; (cc) to a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi) or to any member of such an organization; or (dd) to a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), or to any member of such an organization, unless the actor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the actor did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization. (v) “Representative” defined As used in this paragraph, the term “representative” includes an officer, official, or spokesman of an organization, and any person who directs, counsels, commands, or induces an organization or its members to engage in terrorist activity. (vi) “Terrorist organization” defined As used in this section, the term “terrorist organization” means an organization – (I) designated under section 1189 of this title; (II) otherwise designated, upon publication in the Federal Register, by the Secretary of State in consultation with or upon the request of the Attorney General or the Secretary of Homeland Security, as a terrorist organization, after finding that the organization engages in the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv); or (III) that is a group of two or more individuals, whether organized or not, which engages in, or has a subgroup which engages in, the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv).

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1182

Title 18 Section 2331 defines “international terrorism” and “domestic terrorism” [READ CLOSELY] but not “terrorist”:

As used in this chapter- (1) the term “international terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum; (2) the term “national of the United States” has the meaning given such term in section 101(a)(22) of the Immigration and Nationality Act; (3) the term “person” means any individual or entity capable of holding a legal or beneficial interest in property; (4) the term “act of war” means any act occurring in the course of- (A) declared war; (B) armed conflict, whether or not war has been declared, between two or more nations; or (C) armed conflict between military forces of any origin; and (5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

I’m no attorney and I don’t play one on television. But after reading the above, it seems to me that the short answer to the question “What is the legal definition of terrorist?” is “That depends.”

Now on to the second question: Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

According to the Washington Post’s TOP SECRET AMERICA project, there are “45 government organizations (for example, the FBI) engaged in top-secret work [that can] be broken down into 1,271 sub-units (for example, the Terrorist Screening Center of the FBI).” I’m pretty sure they can. But they also mention “4,058 government organizations involved in domestic counterterrorism and homeland security” including 2,880 federal organizations that work at the state level, such as the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), plus 818 state and 360 local organizations. I’m pretty sure they can, too. And then of course there’s the “1,931 companies engaged in top-secret work for the government.” I’d wager some or all of them can, as well.

And that’s not all. We also have to consider the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI):

Using NaSI SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports), just about anyone can drop the dime the makes you disappear: a hateful former spouse, a jealous or jilted lover, that co-worker you’re always competing with, or maybe just a nosey neighbor. All they have to do is fill out one of these forms and click “Submit”:

Fascism Anyone? The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism by Dr. Lawrence Britt

Occupy Fascism
FASCISM ANYONE? THE 14 DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS OF FASCISM BY DR. LAWRENCE BRITT
Originally published in the Spring 2003 edition of Free Inquiry Magazine

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. He found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Any questions, America?
