The Ruling Bureaucrats of Amerika Want to Be More Like the Soviet Union and China

The authoritarian regime in Washington is targeting WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange with the “Espionage Act,” as though he was “spying on America on behalf of another country” with his revealing to the American people the war crimes committed by the U.S. military and other criminality and corruption of U.S. bureaucrats and politicians like Hillary Clinton.

The Soviet-like apparatchiks had already convicted and imprisoned Bradley Manning, now known as Chelsea Manning, for “Espionage.”

No, Julian Assange was not spying, and his WikiLeaks are not publishing leaks on behalf of foreign regimes but on behalf of the American people and people in other countries whose rulers are acting criminally and corruptly. And that was exactly Manning’s motivation for leaking the material to WikiLeaks. People have a right to know about their rulers’ crimes and corruption.

With the use of the Espionage Act, with its provisions which clearly violate the First Amendment, the corrupt bureaucrats of the U.S. government want to criminalize the exposure of its own criminality and corruption. As I have said before, turn the lights on them and they scamper like the little cockroaches that they are.

If the criminals in Washington keep doing this, the publishing of information that exposes them (including their war-aggression and the military parts of the regime), which is a way of criticizing the regime, then eventually any criticism of the government, its bureaucrats and their awful policies, and the military, will be punished either through the criminal justice system or through the military courts.

And with “pre-crime” mentality that many bureaucrats and police seem to have now, they will be going after those they think might be a “threat” to them. With the way things are going now, that will probably be the case. The China regime is engaged in social media scores and mass surveillance to find those not behaving in ways that areĀ  “algorithmically- determined” government-approved behaviors.

So now the fascists and criminals of the U.S. Congress are proposing the TAPS Act, the “Threat Assessment, Prevention and Safety Act,” which will create a “Joint Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Task Force” to identify anyone who is a potential threat. Apparently, everyone including children will be “assessed” to “identify individuals that exhibit patterns of dangerous behavior that may precede an act of targeted violence,” according to Sen. Macro Rubio.

And just who will decide who is a “threat”? Why, “threat assessment experts from multiple federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, in addition to state and local law enforcement as well as mental health service professionals,” according to Rubio. Hmm, those bureaucrats have such a great record, what could possibly go wrong?

With the surge in nationalism and fascism/socialism in Amerika, and around the world in fact, governments will make it a crime to criticize them and their idiocy and their criminality. They are indicating that they will use “espionage” or “sedition” to criminalize dissent and disobedience. This is already being done on the college campuses all across Amerika.

And everyone will have a “threat assessment,” to pre-determine if they might be a “threat” i.e. a critic of the regime, a dissenter, a political opponent, someone who really is a threat to the power of the elites. Not good.
