The Russian daily Pravdafamous for being the preferred rag of the Communist Party and “official organ of the Soviet Union from 1918-1991″, in a unique act of disinformation has attributed “concentration camps” and “secret judgments” to the United States of America:

“The U.S. has a system of control and repression that consists of secret institutions (secret judgments, concentration camps) contrary to the U.S. Constitution. None of U.S. presidents (starting with Bush) have accepted the political responsibility for the establishment and operation of the system. Snowden’s revelations destroyed the myth of the U.S. as a country of democratic values serving as a model for civilization.”

The remark, published in an article titled “Looking Back at 2013: The Top Ten Most Important Events,” illustrates the fact that the KGB acts of framing and disinformation are still alive and well in the post-Cold War era:

“Even the deep crisis of the Roman Catholic Church shows that the abscess is opened, and liberal values ​​promoted by the West have met a proper pushback in all parts of the world. Russia is entering the New Year in a greatly consolidated position, which cannot be said about the United States.”

Victories for Russia included Putin’s role in American-Syrian relations, the continuance of military-technical and oil contracts with Venezuela, and the achievement of nuclear negotiations with Iran resulting in loosened American sanctions on the radical Islamist state.

Dubbing the Boston Marathon bombing “a provocation to justify the total surveillance of NSA” Pravda also observed, “Reflections after the fact, after revelations of Snowden, make you think that either NSA operates inefficiently with all the totality of its surveillance, which proves the vulnerability of America to terrorists…”.

The word “pravda” translates to “truth” in Russian.

Pravda is not far from the truth. We do live in a totalitarian state controlled by the Obama/Biden dictatorship.

Well, in actuality there are a lot of judgements handed down from a rubber stamp federal court system that was specifically set up to handle national security cases that the federal government wanted to keep OUT of the regular court system.

As for concentration camps, well....Gitmo IS at least one that we know about. Based upon past revelations over the last decade, it would appear that there are also other......locations......that the federal government can transport individuals to for questioning without coming into contact with US soil.

Then there are all of those FEMA rumors.

But hey, no reason to be alarmed.

I'm sure those billions of rounds of hollowpoint ammo Homeland Security purchased (enough to fight the Iraq war for over a decade - at least if hollowpoints were legal in modern warfare) are for completely benevolent purposes.

“The U.S. has a system of control and repression that consists of secret institutions (secret judgments, concentration camps) contrary to the U.S. Constitution.


Not sure what your point is. The above is true. The FISC hands down secret court decisions, and we run Guantanomo.

No, see Harald, “Reflections after the fact, after revelations of Snowden, make you think that either NSA operates inefficiently with all the totality of its surveillance, which proves the vulnerability of America to terrorists…” refers to a sentence that actually ends with "or it was a provocation to justify the total surveillance of NSA."

Since we know the NSA had us under total surveillance since about 2010, that makes the rest of the article moot.

Just kidding, and you're correct. Guantanamo is indeed a concentration camp, and the so-called FISA courts are indeed "secret institutions" that hand down "secret judgements".

I normally like Susan's work, but she totally missed the mark on this one.
