An Unparalleled Menace

by Stephen Lendman

Hegemon USA unmasked threatens everyone everywhere.

A fantasy democracy from inception —abhorrent and intolerant of the real thing — the business of America is state terror and forever wars on invented enemies, including at home against nonbelievers.

Justifiable dissent against what no one should tolerate is considered domestic terrorism.

Totalitarian rule isn't good enough for the empire of lies.

Heading toward becoming full-blown, tyranny is the law of the land. 

Enemies are invented at home and abroad to enforce it.

Big Brother increasingly watches everyone.

The dominant fourth estate operates as a virtual ministry of truth.

The FBI and other parts of the national security state comprise a modern-day Gestapo.

Operating globally, CIA assassins make mafia hitmen look tame by comparison.

A former CIA consultant, the late Chalmers Johnson stressed that as long as the agency exists, the US "will never again know peace, nor in all probability survive as a nation." 

Along with forever wars on nations threatening no one, the American way includes state terror at home and abroad, gulag imprisonment worldwide, domestic mass incarceration, torture and other atrocities under one party rule with two right wings.

Johnson warned about things heading toward military dictatorship or its civilian equivalent.

The rule of law was hijacked by the US ruling class, notably post-9/11, the mother of all state-sponsored false flags until all things flu/covid surpassed its pure evil.

Along with perpetual war on invented enemies, hegemon USA is run secretly, intrusively, repressively and illegally by an illegitimate regime, nominally headed by an unelected imposter.

Johnson stressed that the US is plagued by the same dynamic that doomed other empires unwilling to change – "isolation, overstretch, the uniting of local and global forces opposed to imperialism, and in the end bankruptcy" — combined with increasingly tyrannical rule and loss of personal freedom. 

The rule of law in the US no longer exists.

Extrajudicial rule replaced it.

Called "rules-based order," it's in flagrant breach of international and constitutional law.

Bad as things are already, the worst of times likely lie ahead.

Increasing numbers of Americans are illegally detained short or longer-term and harshly interrogated, their property seized with little or no explanation — including travelers coming into and leaving the US.

No matter that warrantless searches breach Fourth Amendment rights "to be secure in (our) persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures."

Unjustifiably justifying what's going on to protect national security is a red herring.

Hegemon USA's only domestic or foreign threats are invented. No real ones exist.

The motive behind what's happening is to institutionalize submissiveness to the power of the state — to create a nation of lemmings.

War on dissent aims to erode and eliminate speech, press and academic freedoms.

During the Obama/Biden regime's tenure, the Center for Constitutional Rights said the following: 

"The growing threat to the right to dissent has been demonstrated (by regime) efforts to silence speech, and criminalize and target peaceful movements," adding: 

"These efforts are becoming more aggressive, emboldened further by the Supreme Court's increasingly conservative decisions, for instance regarding material support in the form of humanitarian aid to so-called terrorist organizations."

Activism and dissent are increasingly threatened in the US – for expressing constitutionally guaranteed views its dark forces want suppressed. 

Earlier Supreme Court rulings upholding First Amendment rights  don't matter, including Justice William Brennan's majority opinion in Texas v. Johnson (1989), saying:

"(I)f there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea offensive or disagreeable."

Justice Thurgood Marshall once stressed the following: 

"(A)bove all else, the First Amendment means that government has no power to restrict expression because of its message, its ideas, its subject matter, or its content." 

Nor does anyone else.

Separately Marshall said: 

"If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a state has no business telling (anyone) what books (they) may read or what films (they) may watch."

"Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control" the public mind.

No one on the US High Court today remotely approaches the stature and character of a Brennan or Marshall.

Their advocacy for equal justice under law was replaced by increasingly harsh police state rule — how tyranny operates.

What conflicts with the fabricated official narrative is threatened.

Will digital democracy truth-telling, the last frontier of press freedom, be criminalized and banned ahead?

Speech, press and academic freedoms are fundamental.

Without them all other rights are at risk of eroding and disappearing altogether.

That's where things are heading in the decadent, depraved US-dominated West.

The self-styled indispensable state is an unparalleled menace to everyone yearning to breathe free.
