Ex-CIA Official: Patriot Act, a Nazi Law!

An evil exists that threatens every man, woman, and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.
– Adolf Hitler, proposing the creation of the Gestapo in Nazi Germany
 
Reichssicherheitshauptamt
Department of Homeland Security

The Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA) was the main division of the Nazi SS, and the parent organization of the Gestapo. The German word “Reich” is untranslatable, but you couldn’t come closer in contemporary English than the emotionally-laden Bush-era term “homeland.” “Sicherheit” is always translated as “security,” and “Hauptamt” literally means “main office,” which could be reasonably translated as “department.”
 
Homeland Security Act: The Rise of the American Police State
“It is far more dangerous and threatening to our few remaining civil liberties than he appears willing to suggest,” writes Professor E. Nathaniel Gates of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law about … the Homeland Security Act.
  …..
The Act, furthermore, promotes the creation of what one senator once called “a global security system” controlled by the United States, not to mention a budding police state in America.
  ….
Finally, the Homeland Security Act was structured on the recommendations of a special commission that was closely connected to, if not derived from, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which one author notes “has had its hand in every major twentieth century conflict.”

  • To those who study history, this is not a surprise! Yes, the Illuminists are using Nazi Germany as the model to implement a fascist police state in America.
      
    Patriot Act, a Nazi law: Ex-CIA official
    The United States Patriot Act is similar to the legislations carried out by the Nazi Germany in the World War II era, a former CIA officer says.
     
    “The Patriot Act was similar to legislation carried out by the Nazis because essentially it was using terrorism in both cases as an excuse to strip civil liberties that were enjoyed in both countries; in the United States and Germany,” Phillip Giraldi said in an interview with Press TV.
     
    “Governments have been willing to use fear, such as fear of terrorism, and fear of the enemy, as a way to get the people lined up in support of government policies. Very often these policies are essentially bad for the people because they take away many of their rights,” the former CIA officer said.
     
    He went on to say that the relationship between the American citizens and the US government has changed for the worse since the introduction of the Patriot Act, adding that Americans had not become any safer by their rights being stripped away.
     
    The US Patriot Act and desecration of the constitution has brought a dictatorship surveillance society of phone tapping, hidden cameras and policy brutality in the United States, Giraldi said.
     
    The act, which was hastily adopted six weeks after the 2001 terrorist attacks, allows the US government to spy on its citizens without the need for a court order. In February 2010, the House of Representatives and the Senate approved the extension of the Bush-era bill and sent it to President Obama who thereby signed the legislation into law.
