Russian Intelligence Analysts are reporting that the ongoing constitutional crisis that has erupted in the United States has taken a decidedly deadly turn as counter-coup forces attempting to block access to the American capitol engaged in a brief gun battle with US Army Special Forces leaving at least 3 dead.
Of this currently unfolding event we can read as reported by England’s Times Online News Service in their article titled "US Capitol Sealed Off After Gunshots Heard," and which says:
"Police sealed off part of Capitol Hill today after reports that gunshots had been heard in the garage of a House of Representatives office building. The shots were heard in the garage level of the Rayburn Building, which houses offices of members of the US House of Representatives. Bill Pickle, the Senate Sergeant at Arms, told Reuters: "We have been told by staff of shots fired and the smell of smoke in the lobby of the Rayburn House building ."
Russian Intelligence reports further state that the United States Army has activated for this event their 4th Psychological Operations Group/Task Organization and which was the US military unit that coordinated the mis/disinformation campaign during the events of September 11, 2001 to such great effect.
The causes behind this latest escalation between the coup and counter-coup forces in the United States stem from the American President's attempt to wrest total control of his country from both its elected representatives and its judiciary, and as we can read as reported by Italy’s Bellaciao News Service in their article titled "Bush Asserting Powers Accrued By Hitler," and which says:
"President Bush has used 'signing statements' hundreds of times to vitiate the meaning of statutes passed by Congress. In effect, Bush is vetoing the bills he signs into law by asserting unilateral authority as Commander In Chief to bypass or set aside the laws he signs. For example, Bush has asserted that he has the power to ignore the McCain Amendment Against Torture, to ignore the law that requires a warrant to spy on Americans, to ignore the prohibition against indefinite detention without charges or trial, and to ignore the Geneva Conventions to which the U. S. is signatory."
In effect, Bush is asserting the same powers seized by Adolf Hitler in 1933. His Federalist Society apologists and Department of Justice appointees claim that President Bush has the same power to interpret the Constitution as the Supreme Court. An Alito Court is likely to agree with this false claim.
Bush Justice Department official and Berkeley law professor John Yoo argues that no law can restrict the President in his role as Commander In Chief. Thus, once the president is at war - even a vague, open-ended "war on terror" - Bush’s Justice Department says the president is free to undertake any action in pursuit of war, including the torture of children and the indefinite detention of American citizens.
In a further bid this week to tighten their grip upon the United States, military leaders have announced that their nation’s judges no longer have oversight over their actions, and as we can read as reported by the Reuters News Service in their article titled "US Says Gov't, Not Courts, Should Judge Spy Secrets," and which says:
"The United States government, not any court, is the best judge of whether to keep programs such as its controversial effort to eavesdrop on citizens a secret, an assistant attorney general said on Wednesday. Peter Keisler, an assistant attorney general, and other U. S. officials made the claim in the latest filing to a lawsuit alleging that telecommunications firm AT&T illegally allowed the government to monitor phone conversations and e-mail communications.
"In cases such as this one, where the national security of the United States is implicated, it is well established that the executive branch is best positioned to judge the potential effects of disclosure of sensitive information on the nation's security, they wrote in a filing on Wednesday evening."
But perhaps the greatest threat to the American people surrounding these events was the military leaders of the United States launching an unprecedented raid upon their nation's Capitol Building, and as we can read as reported by the Chicago Sun Times News Service in their article titled "Bush Woos Fiery Hastert With 45-Day Cooldown", and which says:
"President Bush ordered a 45-day cooling off period Thursday between Congress and the Justice Department in a battle over a lawmaker's seized documents, a bid to patch frayed relations between the White House and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert.
Hastert, usually a Bush loyalist, on Thursday accused the Justice Department of trying to intimidate'him by leaking information to ABC News. The leak was prompted, he said, by his complaints about a weekend FBI raid of Rep. William Jefferson's Capitol Hill office. The Louisiana Democrat is the target of an FBI corruption probe. The Sun-Times learned that Hastert confronted Bush with his concerns over the FBI raid during the president's trip to Chicago on Monday to address the National Restaurant Association.
"Our government has not faced such a dilemma in more than two centuries," Bush said in a statement.
The military leaders of the United States equally appear ready to launch further attacks upon the American lawmakers, and as we can read as reported by China’s Xinhua News Service in their article titled, "FBI Wants To Investigate Lawmakers Over Leak Of Secret Spying Program," and which says:
"The U. S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) wants to interview top members of Congress from both parties about the leak to The New York Times concerning the National Security Agency's (NSA) domestic surveillance program, CNN reported Thursday."
These events also come on the same day that the United States military leaders have obtained for the first time in their history, complete control of all of their once civilian organizations by the appointment of their nation's top general to head the much-feared Central Intelligence Agency, and as we can read as reported by the American ABC News Service in their article titled, "Senate Confirms Hayden As CIA Director", and which says:
"After hearing assurances he will be independent of the Pentagon, the Senate on Friday easily confirmed Gen. Michael Hayden, a career Air Force man, to head the CIA. Hayden, a four-star general, currently is the top deputy to National Intelligence Director John Negroponte. Hayden, 61, would be the first active-duty or retired military officer to run the spy agency in 25 years."
The United States Air Force, and which had remained the only one of the American military branches to voice concern over the US military seizing control of their country, was retaliated against for their opposition by having their forces dramatically cut, and as we can read as reported the US Army’s Stars & Stripes News Service in their article titled, "Rumsfeld: Air Force Cuts Aimed At Balancing Cost, Capabilities", and which says:
"An Air Force plan to eliminate 40,000 personnel over five years is driven by advances in technology and the need to cut personnel costs, said Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Friday."
An United States Air Force general, when advised of the drastic cuts to his forces which mainly comprise their intelligence and security branches, has, like the United States Congress’ top leader, had a concentrated propaganda campaign launched against him, and as we can read as reported the KNX News Service in their article titled "Highest USAF Officer Target of FBI Probe", and which says:
"ABC News is reporting that the U. S. Air Force's highest-ranking officer and his predecessor are are being investigated by the FBI over a $49.9 million dollar contract for the air force demonstration squadron known as the Thunderbirds. The network says the Bureau is looking into charges that General Michael Moseley and General John Jumper favored a friend, Air Force General Hal Hornburg with a Thunderbirds contract.
The Air Force, responding to the report, said in a statement: "Unfortunately, because of the ongoing litigation and investigation it is inappropriate to address specifics concerning the issue." Lilkewise, a spokesman for Moseley did not return calls asking for a comment but ABC News says all three of the generals are denying any wrongdoing ."
To those reporting on these events within the United States itself the remain terrified as to the growing threat of their Military Leaders, and whom have now raised the specter of jailing all dissident journalists, and as we can read as reported by the American Capitol Hill News Service in their article titled “Bush Wants To Jail Reporters Who Caught Him Breaking the Law", and which says:
"Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says the Bush Administration may prosecute New York Times reporters who wrote about the NSA's spying on Americans, which means Bush can break the law by ordering the spying but he wants to prosecute reporters who caught him breaking the law."
Virtually unknown to the American people about what their Nation has become is that the United States now has more imprisoned then did Nazi Germany immediately prior to World War II, and as we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service in their article titled "Number of U. S. inmates rises 2 percent", and which says:
"Prisons and jails added more than 1,000 inmates each week for a year, putting almost 2.2 million people, or one in every 136 U. S. residents, behind bars by last summer. The report by the Justice Department agency found that 62 percent of people in jails have not been convicted, meaning many of them are awaiting trial ."
The ignorance of the American people to these most crucial of events changing the very structure of the government they live under is both appalling and a testament to the power of their propaganda media organs controlled by their military leaders to deceive them on a scale not seen since Nazi Germany, which was the world’s last democratically-elected government to assume full dictatorial military control.
The twilight of this once-great nation has indeed come upon the American people, but after twilight comes utter darkness…and which they enter into now unprepared for the true horrors they will soon be facing.
