Tyranny Marches a Half Hour Nearer with "Bush Doctrine"
Holding our breath along with the rest of the nation, CCOPS has been waiting to see what response the U.S. government would make to the unthinkable attacks that struck the heart of America on September 11, 2001.
It was clear from the beginning that the U.S. military would have to strike fiercely against such savage enemies. As Americans, we support that -- with hopes the strikes will be just and judicious, as well as decisive.
It was less clear how fiercely the government would strike against American freedom. We were encouraged by George W. Bush's repeated assurances that he would protect, not sacrifice, freedom. Other voices -- calling for renewed imposition of intrusive, ineffective surveillance and other restrictions on freedom -- were more ominous.
On the evening of September 20, President Bush allied himself with the worst enemies of freedom. He made a seemingly innocuous -- even a comforting-sounding -- announcement. He said he had created the cabinet-level Office of Homeland Security, with Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge as its head. (Transcript:
Most people were utterly unaware of the significance of Bush's new bureacracy. But for anyone watching the advance of police- state policies in America, absolutely nothing could have been more ominous.
The Homeland Defense Agency is not a new idea. Conceived by a bi-partisan commission headed by former senators Gary Hart and Warren Rudman, this Clinton-era conception, "The Phase III Report Of The U.S. Commission On National Security/21st Century," is nothing less than the framework for a permanent military-bureaucratic American police state.
The new Homeland Defense Agency is the lynchpin of a plan that extensively reorganizes both the executive and legislative functions of the U.S. government. Among other things, the plan makes the National Guard a national police force. It extensively federalizes both the study and the work of science, mathematics, and engineering. It creates numerous new sub-bureaucracies. The Homeland Security agency itself is to "be built upon the Federal Emergency Management Agency, with the three organizations currently on the front line of border security-the Coast Guard, the Customs Service, and the Border Patrol- transferred to it." The plan calls for the new agency to oversee activities of the Department of Defense, as well as to assume a variety of duties now held by agencies from the Department of Commerce to the FBI.
When the plan was announced in January of this year, the media barely covered it, and shortly thereafter, the plan itself, and the government Web site created expressly for it, dropped out of sight. We found the full text of the report at only one location:
Read it and shudder as you consider how the Bill of Rights -- and your freedoms -- will be slaughtered if you remain silent now.
Do not be fooled. The purpose of this agency and the larger plan of which it is merely one part, is not to make us safer. It is to rule us -- and to put in place the iron, eternal structure of the police state. Once again, crisis has been used as a false justification of the will to power.
When we created the CCOPS Totalitarian Time Clock, we promised ourselves we'd avoid huge, precipitous moves of the clock's hands. Without extreme provocation, we'd advance and roll back the clock's digits only a few minutes at a time. The war strikes of September 11 were world shattering, and we would never seek to minimize the horror or deny the need for strong retaliation. But our government's covert strike against American liberties will have an even more devastating long term impact on millions of lives.
The clock -- and the tragic march of tyranny -- advances by a half hour.
If you really value freedom, please share this alert with everyone you know, and encourage them to go to the site and read the Hart-Rudman roadmap to your future life in a police state.
