The Corporatist Crackdown: What you gonna do when they are comin for you

Be prepared for what will happen after the stolen 2008 election.
This letter is divided in to sections. If you are only interested in what you need to have in the face of an authoritarian system then please look only at the links listed several paragraphs below under the heading "Books of Resistance." These books are uploaded in full and maybe removed soon in order to keep tyranny. Whoever you are I wish you well in our common struggle of freedom.

This information is for everyone and anyone that believe in basic civil rights, the ideas behind the US constitutions, the universal declaration of human rights, human rights and a pluralistic society. This information is to reach almost all social, political and economic spectrums. This is not just for the liberals, the left, the conservatives, the right, the greens, the libertarians, the anarchists, the socialists, and the proudly independents, but for all freedom loving people. This letter is a demand that you leave these divisions behind as you work together with family, friends, fellow workers, neighbours, strangers and so forth. To survive the coming onslaught on our civil rights, liberties, freedoms and basic humanity we will need to reach out across these petty divisions. We will have to work together to fight and survive the cold brutality of the police state.

Most of you reading this already know of the non corporate news stories of martial law; the removal of Posse Comitatus; 100 mile "Constitution-Free" zone; the deputisation of corporatists in a "boys club" called InfraGard with the able to "shoot to kill" in a time of martial law; the coming third know election fraud on November 4th; voter purging; economic blackmail; the corporate bailout; economic collapse; straight out of Iraq the First Brigade of the Third Infantry Division are now patrolling the streets of the US; Presidential Directive 51 the and so forth and so forth. All of you know of these things. The following books or manuals are going to be the most important source of information during the coming strife. Please download these books on a pin drive or some media that can be separated from your computer so as if needed can be destroyed or passed on to others manually instead of via internet. I am begging you to download these books. Please keep in mind that if martial law or a crackdown is done then there will be media blackouts as well as internet and communications blackouts. We have seen a communications blackout last year (2007) in the Middle East when several undersea cables where "accidentally" cut from off the coast of Alexandria Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea to near Dubai in the Persian Gulf. Same time the Middle East blackout was happening the US defence was having a military game in which the cyber realm was supposedly attack in an operation called CyberStorm and all this happened when on the US East Coast there was a blackberry outage. So please be aware that a communications blackout even limited, temporal and regional would accompany martial law. I beg you to pass forth these leaks which may only be good for 24 hours or less. I DO NOT recommend forwarding these in open public forums until at least some time has passed for those of you to have had time to download them.

If you were to pick only two of these books out of the following list then you should chose David's Tool Kit: A Citizen's Guide to Taking Out Big Brother's Heavy Weapons by Ragnar Benson and How to Start & Train a Militia Unit - PM 8--94 by Maj. George Westmoreland, USMC Ret. These two books are filled with great information. This is not to say the others do not, but if you needed to limit it to two books then grab these two. Keep in mind that the goal of a resistance movement is to tie the enemy into a situation where it is not worth the energy, money nor "manpower' to occupy a region or country. Also keep in mind that the bailout or the joke name of the Economic Stablization Act of 2008 now gives the Bush regime a huge treasury to wage war on the populous using mercenaries like Blackwater Worldwide. Keep in mind to resist does not mean violence to other humans and other life. Resistance can take the form of vandalism, graffiti, sickouts and generally making the daily functions of the empire not functional. Also included with this list are books on strategy as well. With the the following list of books free to download I leave you to ponder these quotes from the great Chinese strategist Sun Tzu in his Art of War

"For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."

"Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting."

"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him."

"If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

The second part of this letter is quotes from people who had concerns for the rise of the Corporate State. The Corporate State like monarchies, the fascist state and totalitarian socialist state are the opposite of democracies. Where democracies are founded in the will of the population these other systems are based on authoritarian ideologies.

We have learn from history and we are at a point of time when our country, and in fact the world, is at yet another point of time of deep crises. As a reminder from those before us in their own words...

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
- Thomas Jefferson, writer of the Declaration of Independence and 3rd President of the United States of America

"Yes, we may all congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its close. It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. The best blood of the flower of American youth has been freely offered upon our country's altar that the nation might live. It has indeed been a trying hour for the republic; but I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country ... As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."
- Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."
- Benito Mussolini, Fascist Dictator of Italy

"We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons. If democracy is so stupid as to give us free tickets and salaries for this bear's work, that is its affair. We do not come as friends, nor even as neutrals. We come as enemies. As the wolf bursts into the flock, so we come."
- Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Nazi Propaganda

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group."
- Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States of America

"The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack in the common front against fascism."
- Henry A. Wallace, 33rd Vice President of the United States of America

"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."
- Major-General Smedley Darlington Butler, decorated Marine Corps veteran who was asked to head the American fascist coup against FDR in the Business Plot and fouled the plot of the corporate elite

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."
- Upton Sinclair, American writer

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
- Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th Presedent of the United States of America

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."
- George W Bush, 43rd Presedent of the United States of America

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."
- Upton Sinclair, American writer
****************************************************************************************

Fascism came to Turtle Island in 1492, wrapped in English, French, and other European flags, and all
carrying christian crosses.

well ronin 29.Oct.2008 10:55

stinky

well ronin i understand but that was not fascism that was imperialism. fascism is political economic cult of the state. but both are wrong and you are right in the sense that in 1492 something wrong happen and that was an invasion sent on genocide, slavery, greed and ecocide. bickering about the meaning of words of course does not remove the deep tragedy of the crimes that people from Europe did on peoples around the world. if i was on Turtle island in 1492 i would have tried to give them the means to preventing the crimes that were about to happen.

One day, soon, I hope, you will all realize, that you can control them, far easier than they can control you. They seek to divide us with fear, apprehension, false scarcity, and envy.

Starve them, Do not ask them for anything, do not invest in them, and support those that compete with them. Be self-reliant, and show an as-of-yet unseen kindness for your fellow human being. They want to to fear/hate eachother, so we won't pay attention to what they're doing.
