Have you noticed strange events happening in our country the past few years? Think of everything from 911 up to the Boston Bombings. First, there was 911 and there are questions. Then we had the economy tanking in 2008 and many losing their jobs. Can Governments cause or stage events in history to promote political change? Listen as we go live thursday nite May 23rd at 9pm with Guest John Omalley a retired Federal Government Worker here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/youth-for-independence/2013/05/24/government-game-changersanomalies
Researcher RJ Rummel wrote a book called , ” Death by Government: Genocide and Mass Murder since 1900.” He coined a term “Democide.” According to him, more people in to 20th century are killed by their own governments then all wars combined. About 25 million soldiers died in World Wars I and II and another 12 million were killed in this century’s other wars and revolutions totalling 37 million lives lost.
Under Lenin and Stalin, the Soviet government became one of the world’s greatest killers. Lenin’s policies in 1921-1922 caused an estimated 4 million deaths and in 1932, Stalin ordered that the Ukraine be starved to enforce collectivisation policies and to crush Ukrainian nationalism resulting in the murder of at least 8 million Ukrainians. Between 1917 and 1953 (the year of Stalin’s death), the Soviet Union executed, in one way or another, some 40 million people and many Russian and international historians estimate the figure to be even higher In China, under Mao Tse Tung, 2 million dissidents or `class enemies’ were shot and another one million Tibetans and Turkestani Muslims were `liquidated.’ Between 1950 and 1975, an estimated 30million people starved to death with another two million dying during the Cultural Revolution. This amounts to a total of some 35 million people Hitler and the Nazis were responsible for the deaths of 12 million civilians, half of them Jews An estimated two million German civilians were killed in 1945, and at least 200,000 died in concentration camps between 1945 and 1953. The Allied forces ‘handed back’ an estimated 2 million Soviet citizens to Stalin in 1945: half of them were shot and the rest sent to Arctic camps where many of them died.
During World War I, the Ottoman Empire murdered or starved up to 2 million Armenians, the firstgreat genocide of the new century. In the early 1960’s, 600,000 ethnic Chinese were massacred in Indonesia by government-encouraged mobs and soldiers. During the Marcos era in the Philippines, 75,000 Muslims were massacred by government paramilitary gangs. In 1971, Pakistani troops killed tens of thousands of Bengalis in former East Pakistan. Indian security forces and police have massacred great numbers of tribespeople in border regions and many civilians in Kashmir and Punjab. Between 1975 and 1979, an estimated 2 million people were killed in Cambodia during the regime of Pol Pot. In the 1980’s, Ethiopia’s then Marxist regime through a series of policies including forced relocation caused the deaths of an estimated million people, often through starvation. 1994 witnessed the slaughter of an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu ‘dissidents’ at the hands of Rwanda’s Hutu government. Serbia’s nationalist regime orchestrated the massacre of 200,000 Muslim civilians in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995. Evidence shows that governments kill their own people by staging events to reap power.
So what about the United States Government? Here are some signs. There have been many unanswered questions about the following events. To name a few are 911,(many question wether this was an inside job in order to promote tighter security controls); the death of Andrew Breitbart; Most would accept at face value that he died of a heart attack. The question is then why did any coroner who worked on him also die? The decision of Chief Justice Roberts to uphold the healthcare law. One would think since Bush appointed him that he would have voted the other way; Hurricane Sandy and the election results; Is it quite odd that NJ has seen it’s worst hurricane in 100 years right around election time? Republicans rolling over on certain cases of fraud during the election time. One case is the election of Senator Harry Reid in Nevada over Sharron Angle in 2010. The polls repeatedly shown her to be ahead even up to the last minute.
Are we in the middle of a coup? A coup is an overthrow of a government sometimes by a small group of the existing state establishment. There are several types of coups:
- Breakthrough coup d’état: a revolutionary army overthrows a traditional government and creates a new bureaucratic elite. Generally led by mid-level or junior officers. Examples are China in 1911, Bulgaria in 1944, Egypt in 1952, Turkey in 1960, Greece in 1967, Libya in 1969, Portugal in 1974 and Liberia in 1980.
- Guardian coup d’état: the “musical chairs” coup d’état. The stated aim of such a coup is usually improving public order and efficiency, and ending corruption. There usually is no fundamental change to the power structure. Generally, the leaders portray their actions as a temporary and unfortunate necessity. An early example is the coup d’état by consul Sulla, in 88 B.C., against supporters of Marius in Rome, after the latter attempted to strip him of a military command. An example from the Age of Enlightenment is Swedish king Gustav III‘s Coup d’État in 1772, when he overthrew the government, instituted a new constitution with himself as an enlightened despot, all with massive popular consent. A contemporary instance is the civilian Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto‘s overthrow by Chief of Army Staff General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1977, who cited widespread civil disorder and impending civil war as his justification. In 1999, General Pervez Musharraf overthrew Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on the same grounds. Nations with guardian coups can frequently shift back and forth between civilian and military governments. Example countries include Pakistan, Turkey (1971 and 1980), and Thailand. A bloodless coup usually arises from the Guardian coup d’état.
- Veto coup d’état: occurs when the army vetoes the people’s mass participation and social mobilisation in governing themselves. In such a case, the army confronts and suppresses large-scale, broad-based civil opposition, tending to repression and killing, such as the coup d’état in Chile in 1973 against the elected Socialist President Salvador Allende by the Chilean military. The same happened in Argentina throughout the period 1930–1983.
A coup d’état is typed according to the military rank of the lead usurper.
- The veto coup d’état and the guardian coup d’état are affected by the army’s commanding officers.
- The breakthrough coup d’état is effected by junior officers (colonels or lower rank) or non-commissioned officers (sergeants). When junior officers or enlisted men so seize power, the coup d’état is a mutiny with grave implications for the organizational and professional integrity of the military.
In a bloodless coup d’état, the threat of violence suffices to depose the incumbent. In 1889, Brazil became a republic via bloodless coup; in 1999, Pervez Musharraf assumed power in Pakistan via a bloodless coup; and, in 2006, Sonthi Boonyaratglin assumed power in Thailand as the leader of the Council for Democratic Reform under Constitutional Monarchy.

If we are not in a coup, then we are definitly in decay. Target of Opportunitiny lists five stages of decay.
Society’s Five Stages
of Economic Collapse
Society as we know it will break down and collapse in a five stage process outlined here. While it can be accelerated by certain events like war, a natural disaster, pandemic, terrorist attack, or even an impending asteroid impact, history has shown that economic collapse will essentially happen in this five stage process. To survive the collapse, it is important to read and interpret the signs and understand what assets are important to the current situation so you can be prepared for the worst thereby allowing you to survive intact and with as little damage as possible.
STAGE 1. The Decay Begins
Everything is good and the economy is thriving. A high standard of living has been achieved. This is the way things should be. Goods are cheap and readily available. Everything seems to be in abundance. Stores are filled with retail items ready to be purchased. Life in general is good. The nation’s working infrastructure is solidly intact and working well. However, the idea that everyone is entitled to have what others have earned now permeates society. Redistribution of Wealth Policies are implemented and quietly woven into the fabric of society. Unchecked and under the guise of fairness and equality, these policies slowly decrease productivity and increase dependency on government entitlement and welfare programs.
STAGE 2. The Slippery Slope
The economy goes into a slow but steadily increasing decline. Unemployment is on the rise. Ever increasing numbers of people receive government assistance in one form or another. People are paid not to work. Government spending has increased dramatically. The price of gold, silver, and other precious metals rise to prices unheard of just a few years earlier. Inflation reaches the double digit levels.
STAGE 3. It is Going to Get Worse
The total collapse of the economy begins after a significant and prolonged decline. The government implements price controls. Shortages on essential goods become widespread. Foreclosed houses sit vacant and deteriorating by the tens of thousands. Middle class neighborhoods begin to look like slums. The government begins to print currency to pay its bills and support the tens of millions on public assistance. Inflation increases even more and unemployment exceeds 25%. Banks and businesses fail at ever increasing rates. Nobody seems to have any money. Many are now homeless. Labor unions instigate strikes, civil unrest, and large scale riots. Government services are interrupted and unreliable. Local and national infrastructure is in decay. Violent gangs begin to appear and assert themselves. The government begins confiscation of firearms from law abiding citizens. Violence is everywhere. Cities and urban areas become very dangerous places to live.
At this stage, the country seems pretty much beyond the point of no return. However, things can still be reversed even at this stage if the right person at the top really believes in the basic fundamental concepts of Freedom, Independence, Liberty, and Individual Rights and is not afraid to do what is necessary to reverse the current trend. He will be vilified and hated because of his attitude toward personal responsibility, cutting entitlements, and ending welfare programs. Of course, if the right person were in power and did what needed to be done, none of this would have happened in the first place.
STAGE 4. The Grab for Power
The collapse can transition to this stage at any time after Stage 3. Most of the middle class have lost everything. What used to be well manicured middle class neighborhoods are filled with the carcasses of empty houses damaged and destroyed by vandals. The nation’s infrastructure has been seriously neglected and is in need of a major overhaul. The power grid becomes unreliable. Rolling blackouts are a daily occurrence. You can no longer buy or sell gold or own foreign currency. Inflation is out of control. Now the economy collapses. There is a rush for everything and the shelves go empty in a matter of hours. Society falls into chaos. The control of urban areas shifts when violent gangs takeover control of the streets and urban neighborhoods. The government issues restrictive measures in an attempt to control the economy. Everything is in short supply and heavily rationed. Food and gasoline is very expensive and there are very long lines to get them when they are available. Affordable quality health care is non-existent and your job is a distant memory. You will do without what you are unable to provide for yourself. You will discover what it is to live in a third world country.
Once all of the above has come to pass, the realization of the current circumstances at this moment must be all too obvious. It is too late to prepare at this point. What you did not acquire earlier, you are not going to possess now. Anything of value necessary for your survival has already been claimed. The situation gets worse… much worse.
Stage 5 is next… and it is not pretty.
STAGE 5. Freedom, Liberty, and Independence are Lost
The government implements martial law. Fighting between civilians and government forces break out nationwide. Maintaining more than a 30 day supply of food is considered hoarding food and is illegal. Severe poverty and starvation become a common sight. The government offers marginally acceptable food, water and shelter in exchange for your Freedom, Liberty, and Independence. Democracy ends and a Socialist form of government takes over under the guise of fixing society’s problems with the false promise that peace and prosperity will return better than it was just a few years ago. A Totalitarian regime assumes power and the individual freedoms and liberties once enjoyed by the people are completely eliminated.
