BIG BROTHER BIG PLANS
I know that what I am about to say will raise a few eyebrows, maybe even anger those who believe that Donald Trump is here to save us from all of the problems that were created by the Bush and Obama administrations.
At this point in time, I really don’t think that Donald Trump with all of his abilities to put band aids on 18 years of American apoplexy can keep us from spiraling into a fascist dictatorship. I am not saying that Donald Trump will cave in totally to the Deep State manipulation of the era; that is definitely not his style. I am merely stating that no matter how hard he kicks at the oppressors of American values, there is a huge neo-fascist conspiracy that will use various methods to manipulate the system to create circumstances where policies for the people will fail and of course all of the blame will be placed on President Trump.
The bearers of impeachment papers and movements to impeach are still looming over this administration and while impeachment is the last thing we need, we have to be on our guard to protect ourselves and our families by having critical and objective dialogue about these matters.
There is not one man that can save us from what is coming, because the technocrats are wanting a government that can be functional; the way the technocrats see function is through full spectrum dominance and the control of the people.
Government is obviously composed of corrupt and greedy people, and therefore they are a legitimate object of criticism and constant exposure. If your own political party is in power, then it is easier for you to say that all things are moving smoothly. Yet it has been demonstrated time infinitum that the state has become infiltrated by individuals with secret societal philosophies that if implemented, can dramatically change the way we live. Their party affiliation has no bearing on their hidden agendas. Those that hide in the shadows make policy in order to secure the state power hold and continuity of corrupt government.
In 2018, it is business as usual for the United States to implement the philosophy of the institutionalized predator state that condones the lack of due process, encourages that spirit of the police state and welcomes the tracking and surveillance of everyone because we are told we can never be too careful.
The President with all of his detractors will be reduced to nothing more than a warden overseeing a gulag of people that do not know what they truly want.
You may not be confined to a camp of barbed wire and the concrete blocks, but we are building them spiritually and then they will materialize all for the cause of what we call “freedom.”
According to what I read in a recent Gallup poll summing up 2017 and the overall attitude in the country, Americans named dissatisfaction with government as the most important problem facing the nation in 2017, the third time in the past four years that government has been at the top of the list. The second most frequently mentioned problem in 2017 was healthcare, followed by race relations, immigration, the need to unify the country, and the economy.
Now this I am sure would convince the neo-liberals that they were right about President Trump being a ineffective leader – but common sense tells you that this has been a trend for 17 years and so the dour attitude of a country that has seen its civil liberties being taken from them is to be expected.

To hopeful conservatives, President Trump will deliver, to realists, the trend is not showing signs of changing.
Like it or not after President Trump gives it his college try, the so-called neo-fascist resistance will be finding itself demanding a state socialist government – those that can recognize the trend will not be afraid to look into the future and admit the truth.
The United States has never been immune to fascism but many commentators still feel uneasy speaking about fascism in America. They still consider fascism to be foreign to American society. They often assume that American exceptionalism makes the country immune to any fascist threat. Fascism has no place in our master narrative of American history. Conversely, in most global histories of fascism, America is no more than a footnote.
And yet it has never been more important to acknowledge the history of fascism and neo-fascism in America than it is today. Neo liberal and ultra right fascist movements have grown nearly 600 percent according to social media monitoring at George Washington University.
However these are merely so called fascist movements and after the Charlottesville protests last year the mainstream media did their best to call Antifa – a resistance movement against white supremacy.
The root of anything fascist comes directly from a government no matter what extremist movement is kicking in doors and smashing windows. The power of the word, “fascism” seems to have been reduced to a mere insult by college activists.“Social justice” is also a term that has been so thoroughly bastardized, that it no longer means anything.
You don’t call a government fascist just because you don’t like the elected President.
Fascism is a growing problem and with our new and constantly improving technological advances, the technocratic fascist nightmare awaits us and no president is going to save us from it – it is up to the people to change it.
What is sad is there won’t be much dialogue about it until it is too late.
Now I want to tell you that what I am about to explain to you was depicted in an episode of Black Mirror, a television show on Netflix that is simply an updated version of the Twilight Zone with precautionary tales of the technological terror that awaits us in the not too distant future.
In the episode “Nosedive” we are shown a world where people can rate each other from one to five stars for every interaction they have’. Imagine having a national rating code that is used to judge your behavior. We already have a credit rating – but imagine that rating combined with ratings on how you are in social situations, pay your bills, file your taxes, drive your car and even if you smile at people and having it as a record to prove your worthiness to purchase something or even travel from state-to-state.

Can you imagine a rating system being fully implemented into society that is not only meant to establish your “trustworthiness,” but is available for everyone to see?
It would be part of your identification as a person.
Sounds crazy right?
Well in China, it is not so crazy. The Chinese are planning to implement its so-called “Social Credit System” by the year 2020 and it is exactly like the system seen in the TV series Black Mirror. People are already voluntarily signing up for it – but it will soon be mandated after the year 2020.
Try to envision a world in which you’re constantly monitored, judged for your actions, and literally evaluated based on every choice you make and action you take.
There will be different categories that you’ll be ranked on, including behavior, personal preferences, and interpersonal relationships. From the people you hang out with to the amount of time you spend on social media and playing video games to the types of purchases you make and how much debt you have, the world will know. You can say goodbye to privacy under SCS, because Big Brother is stepping in to monitor your every move.
Of course, a lot of this already happens. Many governments including the U.S. already spy on their citizens, social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram collect an overwhelming amount of information on you, and Google is secretly recording pretty much everything you do.
Everybody is measured by a score between 350 and 950, which is linked to their national identity card.
In addition to measuring credit ratings the overall score serves as a measure of political compliance. Among the things that will hurt a citizen’s score are posting political opinions without prior permission, or posting information that the Communist regime does not like.
To keep “score,” the government needs to tie IDs to online activity. Keeping the internet within the government’s walls makes it that much easier. But it’s not just online activity that will affect “citizen scores.” It’s almost every aspect of their lives. Most disheartening is the fact that many citizens seem to view higher scores as status symbols.
This is a very terrifying example of Technotronic serfdom.
More than 6.7 million people in China have been placed on a blacklist created in this manner. Once you’re on the blacklist, you are not allowed to buy high-speed rail tickets or plane tickets and other people can see your ratings, and face social pressure to exclude you (their own scores are based in part on whether they associate with low-scoring individuals.)
Sadly, many Chinese appear to be embracing the score as a measure of social worth, with almost 100,000 people bragging about their scores on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
It also comes with a reward of crypto credit called, Sesame Credit.
If their score reaches 600, they can take out a Just Spend loan of up to 5,000 Yuan ($800.00) to use to shop online, as long as it’s on specific website. Reach 650 points, they may rent a car without leaving a deposit. They are also entitled to faster check-in at hotels and use of the VIP check-in at Beijing Capital International Airport.
Those with more than 666 points can get a cash loan of up to 50,000 Yuan or $8000, obviously from an approved Financial Services company . Get above 700 and they can apply for Singapore travel without supporting documents such as an employee letter. And at 750, they get fast-tracked application to a coveted pan-European Schengen visa.
You may say to yourself “Only in China” but don’t speak so fast – Internet controls and governments requiring status reports of the citizenry are vital and real I.D. mandates are being created all over the world.
Here in the United States, the Real ID Act of 2005, was enacted May 11, 2005. It is an Act of Congress that modifies U.S. federal law pertaining to security, authentication, and issuance procedures standards for the state driver’s licenses and identity documents, as well as various immigration issues pertaining to terrorism.

The law sets forth requirements for state driver’s licenses and ID cards to be accepted by the federal government for “official purposes”, as defined by the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security.
The Secretary of Homeland Security has defined “official purposes” as boarding commercially operated airline flights and entering federal buildings and nuclear power plants, although the law gives the Secretary the unlimited authority to require a “federal identification” for any other purposes.
Beginning on January 22, 2018, residents of several US states may not be able to use their driver license to get through airport security. On that date, the REAL ID Act will go into effect, establishing minimum security standards for sources of identification, including licenses.
In short, if your state isn’t compliant with the REAL ID Act, you’ll need an additional form of identification in order to get through airport security. Now, many of the states that were once non-compliant have were issued extensions.
They expired on October 10th, 2017.
The nine states now have until October 10, 2017, to comply with the REAL ID Act.
If a state is not compliant by January 22, 2018, and has not received an extension, residents of that state will be required to show an additional, compliant form of identification when traveling by air. If your state is non-compliant and hasn’t been issued an extension, you’ll need to use one of DHS’ acceptable forms of identification, such as a passport, US military ID, border crossing card, one of the DHS trusted traveler cards.
On January 22, 2018 air travelers with a driver’s license or state ID card that doesn’t comply must present another form of identification acceptable to the TSA in order to fly domestically. Starting October 1, 2020, every domestic air traveler will need a Real ID-compliant license, or another acceptable form of identification, for domestic air travel.

Obviously, it will take a while to get used to – it took this long to finally be implemented.
However, what you can think long and hard about is that China is using their REAL ID program to implement their new “Social Credit System.”
Are our REAL ID requirements putting us on the slippery slope to what China is implementing?
It is worthy of discussion and this has nothing to do with whether or not the President can reverse a knee jerk reaction that happened during the George W. Bush administration, after the attacks on 9/11. The question is whether or not we need more identification just to travel to another state by plane – is all of this worth it?
I am trying to figure out when the last terrorist attack happened where a plane was used or where the plot originates from an airport.
The TSA has already averted potential terrorist attack with what they have in place now.
We don’t need a real ID.
There is another nefarious purpose for this move, and it would be hard to get the media to even find out the truth.
I sometimes wonder if people caught up in their Russian collusion conspiracies and tax from worries can even gather the courage to have meaningful dialogue on the issue without the hang-ups of saying that having any concerns about anything fascist is an affront to President Trump and his ability to lead.
This is just one more move to push us toward a “functional” state socialist government like what they have in China.
It makes no difference how close I or anyone else gets to the truth, the silence at times can be deafening. The noise of disinformation can be discouraging; the threat of being shut down is ever present. The whole exercise contrary to popular belief can bankrupt you both spiritually and financially and death is something that always does the deed permanently.
For those who think what is happening is all a game and that it will all work itself out has been brought into the dangerous state of ennui that will destroy us like a cancer left untreated.
Will President Trump reverse these policies that we obviously don’t need?
Unless someone can convince him that it was Barack Obama’s idea, I highly doubt it.
