51. TransCanada were caught with a slideshow of peaceful activists, teaching cops they're terrorists.

 

http://ecowatch.com/2013/transcanada-caught-training-police-nonviolent-keystone-xl-protesters-terrorists/

"In the midst of recent national controversy surrounding government surveillance of the public, a recent Freedom of Information Act request to the Nebraska State Patrol has exposed evidence that TransCanada provided training to federal agents and local Nebraska police to suppress nonviolent activists protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline by arresting them on 'anti-terrorism statutes.' The presentation slides, obtained by grassroots landowner advocacy group Bold Nebraska, target Tar Sands Blockade activists by name."

Occupy, being enemies of The Precious ill-gotten "economy", are considered terrorists:

Cop strongly implies Occupy presence means increased terrorism threat; Federal agents at parade

"There will be an increased law enforcement presence, including federal agents, at the 2013 parade because of the Occupy demonstration, Sanchez said.

'The big thing we'd like to get out there is that if someone sees something, they should say something,' Sanchez said. 'It's the best way we can prevent something from occurring.'"

Obviously, the government believes, despite Obama's early words (honeytrap?) regarding honoring and protecting whistle-blowers, that such are scum to be destroyed. Journalists report a chilling effect as sources lose interest in being trackable through NSA metadata sweeps. The Constitution is vanishing. Under a "democrat" in name only.

Armed patrols are not swarming our streets but it would appear that the message is still very clear. "Do what we say or else." Not that they'd ever use all that stored data against anyone for whom they didn't care.
