The New FBI Powers: Cointelpro on Steroids

Listen closely and what you will hear, beneath the babble of political chatter and other mindless political noises distracting you from what’s really going on, are the dying squeals of the Fourth Amendment. It dies a little more with every no-knock raid that is carried out by a SWAT team, every phone call eavesdropped on by FBI agents, and every piece of legislation passed that further undermines the right of every American to be free from governmental intrusions into their private affairs.

Meanwhile, President Obama and John Boehner are exchanging political niceties on the golf course, Congress is doing their utmost to be as ineffective as possible, and the Tea Party – once thought to be an alternative to politics as usual – is clowning around with candidates who, upon election, have proven to be no better than their predecessors and just as untrustworthy when it comes to protecting our rights and our interests. Yet no matter how hard Americans work to insulate themselves from the harsh realities of life today – endless wars, crippling debt, sustained unemployment, a growing homeless population, rising food and gas prices, morally bankrupt and corrupt politicians, plummeting literacy rates, and on and on – there can be no ignoring the steady drumbeat of the police state marching in lockstep with our government.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Scott Crow’s experiences are very reminiscent of my own experiences in 1987, when the FBI targeted me for my political activities. What started as unrelenting phone harassment and break-ins quickly progressed to several attempts to run me over and an affair with an undercover agent who railroaded me into a psychiatric hospital.

    I write about all this in my recent memoir THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE (www.stuartbramhall.com) I currently live in exile in New Zealand.
