An Open Invitation to Tyranny

Paul Craig Roberts

(August 7, 2019)

The FBI has published a document that concludes that “conspiracy theories” can motivate believers to commit crimes.  https://www.scribd.com/document/420379775/FBI-Conspiracy-Theory-Redacted#download 

Considering the growing acceptance of pre-emptive arrest, that is, arresting someone before they can commit a crime that they are suspected of planning to commit, challenging official explanations, such as those offered for the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King or the official explanation for 9/11, can now result in monitoring by authorities with a view to finding a reason for pre-emptive arrest.  Presidents George W. Bush and Obama created the police state precedents of suspension of habeas corpus and assassination of citizens on suspicion alone without due process.  If Americans can be preemptively detained indefinitely and preemptively assassinated,  Americans can expect to be preemptively imprisoned for crimes that they did not commit.  

As Lawrence Stratton and I explained in our book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions, the historic achievement of forging law into a shield of the people is being reversed in our time as law is being reforged into a weapon in the hands of the government.  https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/155833/the-tyranny-of-good-intentions-by-paul-craig-roberts-and-lawrence-m-stratton/ 

The FBI document says that conspiracy theories “are usually at odds with official or prevailing explanations of events.”  Note the use of “official” and “prevailing.”  Official explanations are explanations provided by governments.  Prevailing explanations are the explanations that the media repeats.  Examples of official and prevailing explanations are: Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the official explanation by the US government for the destruction of Libya.  If a person doubts official explanations such as these, that person is a “conspiracy theorist.”

FBI To Step Up Monitoring of Social Media

In Wake of El Paso, Dayton Agency to “US-Based Domestic Violent Extremists, Perpetrators of Hate Crimes”

In the aftermath of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be looking to social media more and more in what it claims is a drive to prevent mass shootings before they occur.

“Authorities are looking at social media channels like 8chan in an effort to stop future mass shootings,” CBS News reports.

They said many attackers are inspired online with message boards and social media giving attackers the platform they seek.

“The attack in El Paso, Texas, underscores the continued threat posed by domestic violent extremists and perpetrators of hate crimes,” the FBI states in an August 4 press release, requesting the

American public to report to law enforcement any suspicious activity that is observed either in person or online.

“Many shooters spend almost two years planning their attack … Usually it’s a desire for some omnipotent control, even if its just momentary,” FBI agent Andres Simmons tells CBS News. “And there’s also a degree of desire for infamy and notoriety.”

The FBI’s announcement comes less than one week after Yahoo News reported on a Phoenix FBI Field Office Memo stating that those circulating “anti-government, identity-based and fringe political conspiracy theories” online are worthy of intensified law enforcement scrutiny because they “very likely motivate some domestic extremists to commit criminal, sometimes violent activity.”

FBI: Conspiracy Theories Are Now A Domestic Terrorism Threat

Tyler Durden
Zerohedge
(August 1, 2019)

Do you believe in an elite cabal of untouchable oligarchs guiding the course of history via false flags, perpetual war, and covertly funded militant groups? Do you share these beliefs online?

You might just be engaging in domestic terrorism according to the FBI.

A May 30 intelligence bulletin posted by the bureau’s Phoenix field office describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” as a growing threat, reports Yahoo News.

Does the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory peddled by leading Democrats and amplified by the MSM for over two straight years count?

Apparently not, as the document singles out QAnon – “a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement),” according to the report.

(Except they do according to a quote from the owner, James Alefantis, in this 2015 Metro Weekly article)

The report points to the case of Edgar Maddison Welch, who opened fire in the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant at the center of Pizzagate. Welch, who worked for his father’s film company – “Forever Young Productions” – walked through the door with an AR-15, “shot off the lock to an inside door, sending a bullet into a computer tower,” and told authorities he was there to ‘rescue children‘ (by shooting at a door they might be behind) according to the Washington Post.

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” reads the FBI document, which adds that conspiracy theory-driven extremism is likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

Stealth Terror IV: Earthquakes

By James R. Hanson

As I examine my report on earthquakes, its awesome implications could well tie in to the present sequence one day because New York City is not only hurricane-vulnerable, it sits on rock formations which, when there is an inevitable (or managed) shift will, as one possibility, destroy Brooklyn and its brick buildings and the people in them, including a friend of mine.  This could happen before New York City sinks out of sight.

To my knowledge, earthquakes have no natural connection to hurricanes, nor to weather conditions, for that matter.  The earth’s crust in which they occur moves because the plates are in motion, such that continents have met and merged, and will continue to do so.  The pressure builds day by day, and century by century, until some force triggers the movement of a plate to yield to the pressure build-up so that there is a sudden slip.  “The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy.”  (Bertell)
