The FBI: The Silent Terror of the Fourth Reich

With every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention. These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry should reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where the only law that counts comes in the form of heavy-handed, unilateral dictates from a supreme ruler who uses a secret police to control the populace. That danger is now posed by the FBI, whose laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property, and that’s just based on what we know.

  1. I hate to tell you, Kurt, but you screwed up right out of the gate when you confused J Edgar Hoover with Herbert Hoover.

      Hi Jimmy

      We are aware of the slip up thank you. If you look at the bottom right hand corner of the video, at the time of the error the correction note is there.


  2. victor friese says:

    Um, this is Whitehead, not Kurt.

  3. John Miranda says:

    “Germany was the dress rehearsal for the United States.” Sid Haddad, 1970.

    The Corporate Fascist Fourth Reich of the New World Order was formally established in the United States on 1/20/2017.

    It’s here and now. Trump is just a diversionary sideshow

  4. John Miranda says:

    “We ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.”

  5. John Phillips says:

    Another amazing OMG expose on the our Nazi Government. For any of us over 50 yo in the US who has been paying attention, we know this all too well. I’m looking for solutions. It is not enough to blame big government and big corporations for that which we are responsible, for we allow this to happen through our lack of action; politically, socially and economically.

    If I may…how you spend your money and where you earn it are THE most important vehicles for change (economically and politically) you can pursue. How, where and what purchases you make; where and with whom you invest your money, where and with whom you work for (and conditions thereof), and the vehicles you use to retain and transfer your assets (wealth) to your children are critical avenues for change.

    Knowing we can only do what we can within our own capabilities and interests may I suggest….

    -Be a citizen FIRST! Fore, after all we are citizens are we not? Consumer….NOT-ever! Reject the term. John has this right!
    -If you work for the “Nazi” machine or the FBI or the military industrial complex; quit, now! You are the problem.
    -Play their game when you must (by law and by law enforcement) and at all other times; subvert, covert, divert and be overt in your opposition. Play by your own rules, not theirs!
    -Be brave…be vocal! Be loud when necessary! Resist!

    I have another dozen or so recommendations on how you may take action for yourself, if anyone out there is interested.
    Best Regards

    • David E Burden says:

      Well said John. I agree.
      Especially with the part about being vocal.

      • John Phillips says:

        Thanks for your reply. I don’t think it is enough to just identify the issues but to be solution oriented. Otherwise we are just exercising intellectual prowess. It really comes down to “us.” After all, we are 300 million people and just a fraction of that are “them.” If just a few begin to act, or act out, or act up…others will follow suit and suddenly we have changed the world.

  6. Sandra Villarreal says:

    ‘The Patriot Act’ sure reminds me of Hitler’s ‘The Enabling Act’. I sure don’t see much difference.
