White House Panelist On NSA – and Former Counterterror Czar – Says NSA May Enable a “Police State”

“Once You Give Up Your Rights, You Can Never Get Them Back. Once You Turn On That Police State, You Can Never Turn It Off.”

Richard Clarke is one of the four White House panelists on NSA spying, and the former top counter-terror czar in the Clinton and Bush administrations.

Clarke has previously said that mass surveillance isn’t needed to keep us safe. And see this.

As Tech Target reports:

Revelations about NSA monitoring activities over the last year show the potential for a police state mechanism, according to the former U.S. cybersecurity czar, but there is still time to avoid the dire consequences.


“[T]hey have created, with the growth of technologies, the potential for a police state.”


“Once you give up your rights, you can never get them back. Once you turn on that police state, you can never turn it off.”

Indeed, top American officials have warned for decades of a police state enabled by the NSA.

And a former top NSA official said that we’ve already got a police state.  He told Washington’s Blog:

I am glad he [Clarke] also understands the threat to democracy.

The only reason I recognized that in 2001 is because I worked the Soviet problem for close to 30 years … and what NSA was doing was exactly what the Soviet’s tried to do (as well as the Stasi and the Gestapo/SS).

And see this.

    Police State…..

    Open Letter to the U.S. Congress, EPA, NOAA, NASA, and all involved in Geoengineering including the Air Force

    Please explain:

    1. the unaccounted $8.5 TRILLION missing from the U.S. Pentagon budget since 1996.

    2. heavy metals, especially aluminum oxide, acting as endocrine disruptors. [3]

    3. why plankton [4] in the ocean are 50 percent declined globally?

    4. 400 dead zones in oceans around the planet.

    5. the patents for artificial ice nucleation, i.e., chemical nucleation.

    6. barium being sprayed down from air tankers.

    7. how aerosolizing causes draught by disrupting the hydro-cycle.

    8. how the Jet Stream is being manipulated to create the 2014 winter “Polar Vortex.”

    9. why California seems to be a “sacrifice zone” for whatever experiments are taking place to negatively affect the East Coast of the USA.

    10. how Fukushima radiation interacts with weather geoengineering.

    11. HAARP and SBX Radar, the sea-based HAARP facility.

    12. why you don’t want taxpayers to know how our tax dollars are being abused while the country is going broke.

    And lastly,

    Why are U.S. citizens deliberately being treated like lab rats?

      The Mainstream Finally Admits the Planet is Cooling

      This admission from mainstream scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
      that even though greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are rising, the temperatures at the surface are not, is a major blow to the theory of global warming. It may not seem like much, but it’s a big deal. This study proves that the heat that would be generated by the rise in greenhouse gases is nullified by natural processes that are beyond the control of man. – read more: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/the-mainstream-finally-admits-the-planet-is-cooling_022014

    The NSA is corrupt and evil.

  • How can they possibly install a police state on the American people without the people revolting?

    Dr. Kevin Barrett (one of the BEST out there right now):

    How does Terror Management Theory (TMT) work?

    According to TMT, human activity is driven by fear of death. People keep busy to avoid facing their own mortality. When reminded of death, they react in predictable ways – including giving up their rights and handing money and power to authoritarian leaders. So unscrupulous leaders, by highlighting certain kinds of threats, can terrorize people into submitting to corrupt authority.
    In reality, lightning strikes and bathtub drownings are more of a threat than terrorism. But no politician can get away with saying “give me money and power and I will protect you from bathtubs and lightning.”

    Instead, they say: “Be afraid that a plane you are on will be hijacked and crash into a building. Be afraid that a building you are in will be demolished by a plane. Be afraid that anthrax may arrive in your mailbox. Be afraid that a bomb may explode next to you on the street, or that your children will be shot by a maniac while they are at school, or that you and your family will be mowed down by a crazed gunman in a theater or a house of worship.”

    Spectacular Hollywood-style violence featuring terror attacks, crazed gunmen firing into crowds, and similar imagery is – according to Terror Management Theory – the perfect tool of social control. All the leaders need to do is stage a certain number of terror incidents and blame someone else. Then they can “crack down on the terrorists and criminals” and keep the population in a state of slavish obedience.

    Have US leaders ever staged a fake terror incident?

    The answer is yes


    Also lookup Operation Gladio which is exactly this too:

    ‘You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

    This was the essence of Operation Gladio, a decades-long covert campaign of terrorism and deceit directed by the intelligence services of the West — against their own populations. Hundreds of innocent people were killed or maimed in terrorist attacks — on train stations, supermarkets, cafes and offices — which were then blamed on “leftist subversives” or other political opponents. The purpose, as stated above in sworn testimony by Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra, was to demonize designated enemies and frighten the public into supporting ever-increasing powers for government leaders — and their elitist cronies.

    First revealed by Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti in 1991, Gladio (from the Latin for “sword”) is still protected to this day by its founding patrons, the CIA and MI6. Yet parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have shaken out a few fragments of the truth over the years.

    Clark may be right about this, but beware of that man, he has a very disturbing history. If you what to know more about Richard Clark and 9/11, I suggest the recent book: Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects by Kevin Ryan (formerly with UL) and this excellent interview series:

    Who is REALLY on your side? Surely not all those radio talkjocks who rarely speak of anything that REALLY matters. All Obamacare, all the time. Obama news du jour, every day. And, “are those republicans dumb, or what! I can’t figger it out!” Meanwhile, all the serious news that would be news, could be news, is no news, never news. That non-news is relegated to those tin-foil hat sites, and the country, the entire planet, continue the steady spiral down the political and cultural commode.
    — Surprise! It is the lunatics at the top who are running this asylum. Who woulda thunk it?

    Mr. Clarke. I’m really fed up with former government officials and political appointees who wait till their government service ends to decide to find the courage to tell the truth. Really??? None of this dawned on you when YOU WERE the “Cyber Security Czar” and in a position to actually do something about it ?
