A Peek into the Belly of the New American Beast

The conversion of a welfare state to a police state is the result of militarized imperialism abroad and the ascendancy of finance capital at home, as well as the proliferation of security state agencies and related private industries and the strategic role of rightwing Zionists in top positions of the police state apparatus.

This convergence of international and domestic structural changes took hold during the 1980’s and 1990’s and then accelerated during the first decade of the 21st century.

Kinda Says it All

Doesn't it:
"From the end of World War II to the end of the 1970’s, the US managed to successfully combine overseas imperial wars with an expanding welfare state at home."

No wonder they assassinated JFK when he was about to blow their cover.

Thanks for posting this.

Somebody help me out here

What's this "restore the advances in citizens’ welfare" stuff about? I agree with his police state analysis, but as far as socsec, foodstamps and healthcare the fed gov should never have gotten involved in those things. I understand a sudden collapse of the fed gov's wefarism would bring hardship to many people, but it's probably better that happens sooner rather than later and NEVER comes back.

This is a variation of the left/right paradigm theme.

Warfare and welfare have always been the means to enrich the beast through the central bank network government lending. To now set them against each other is simply a variation of the Republican (warfare) versus Democratic (welfare) duopoly of the past one hundred years.

Now that this duopoly has been exposed as a chimera the need for a new dialectic has arisen. On the evidence of this article it is the 99% vs. the 1%, the People versus the national security state. This plays into the hands of the direct democracy meme of the Occupy movement but where it goes from here is anyone's guess.

Mr. Petras appears to be just setting the scene.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

It's very important to recognize

that this is made possible by the central banking stranglehold that the Rothschild dynasty, who were behind the whole Zionist movement since the 1800s, has created as their leverage. They have the hold on us, and they are implanting this Zionist power structure.

And it's also important to recognize that the Zionist goal is NOT just a little patch of land on the Mediterranean Sea called "Israel".
The real goal is for their "Zion" to be the entire world, which they own and operate and control.
They like people to 'think' that Zionism was just to create Israel, but that was only one of the steps. It's obvious now that world domination was the goal from day one. They are using the US for it.

"The creation of "Israel" was just one step."

This is true. "Israel" is at the centre of a geostrategic region which is why it was chosen by the Rothschild dynasty for acquisition. They are the earthly head of the beast but they were not the original founders. That happened a very long time ago just after the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ when a cabal of leaders of the Jews met to plan to combat the "mysterious force" that had emerged in the world after Pentecost 33 A.D.

The growth of this enterprise has paralleled the growth of the Kingdom of God for the past two thousand years and now, today, is the day of awakening, of revelation of the roots of this conspiracy to dominate the world.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
