Fascism, Anyone? Google Chief Likely for Cabinet Post


by Zen Gardner

If this isn’t evidence of corporate collusion at work, nothing is. Mussolini captured the essence of this kind of corporatocracy in a little word that once had a negative connotation. Does it any more?

The marriage of government and corporations is defined as fascism.

Here’s the news:

Treasury Secretary Google?

Already a winner on the business front for his support and guidance to President Obama and his reelection campaign, there is growing speculation that Google Chairman Eric Schmidt is in line for an even bigger payoff: secretary of either Treasury or Commerce or a new “secretary of business” slot.

Cabinet shakeup watchers have focused on Schmidt and his Yoda status in the Obama reelection campaign, Google’s massive $1.9 million to Democrats in the election, and the administration’s efforts to quiet a potential Federal Trade Commission investigation of Google as key signs that the president wants Schmidt in the cabinet.

“Nobody’s better positioned for a Cabinet job, if he wants one,” said a Democratic strategist.

Since Obama ran for national office, Google has been there with money and advice. Way back in 2007, Obama visited Google HQ and said, “What we shared is a belief in changing the world from the bottom up, not from the top down.”

Ever since, it’s been a match made in heaven. MORE

Over the Top, A Long Time Ago

It’s off the charts. Just look at how far the revolving door and inter-twined relationship goes.

NSA Hides Google Ties As DARPA Director Takes Google Job

As the NSA tries to cover up its ties with Google, in a potential widespread spying scandal, DARPA Director Regina Dugan is leaving the Pentagon to take a post at Google.

In the midst of what looks likes a massive spying scandal between the National Security Agency and Google, similar to the NSA’s partnership with AT&T to spy on all phone calls placed within the US, we learn today that the Director of the Pentagon’s Premiere Research Lab, DARPA, is stepping down to take a “senior executive position” at Google.

Just three days ago, news hit the wire that the Department of Justice had asked US Federal courts to keep any partnerships between Google and the NSA secret. MORE

The Fascist States of America

And this is just a couple of agencies. Monsanto grads run the FDA, Goldman Sachs cronies run the treasury department, and the list goes on and on. The fascism is at full throttle.

And if you think calling it fascism is going too far, considering its sordid record in past regimes, it’s time you had an eye opener:

The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism

by Dr. Lawrence Britt

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. He found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Any questions, America?

  1. Thank you Zen. Number 11. In the so called Fine Arts for music composition, the Atonal Dissonant style is the mainstream of teaching. No Beauty allowed. I got a D in my first semester in just piano performance cause i could not for anything learn to play one little piece that was completely ugly and chaotic. I dropped out cause my so called teacher punched me in the arm after i showed her that anyone can make up something so ridiculous as that piece. It’s sad that young students are being taught this form of total degenerate crap.

  2. Why this is bad, is, Obama at age 20 went to work for the CIA out of college. Google partners started Google with a grant from, none other, than the CIA. A year ago, the owners stepped down from operations and the CIA has been running it ever since, so Eric is CIA and I suspect is going to be directly handling Obama, MK Ultra. I wonder what happened that they have to come in and directly take over…. Well, maybe the British are getting antsy about the “awakening” of the American people. I have a feeling the net is killing them.

    • The amount of people recruited by and working for the CIA in every strata of control is supposed to be astronomical. I mean Anderson (Vanderbilt) Cooper’s one. It’s all so staged and controlled it’s absurd. Bob Hope used to run mind control slaves using the USO as a cover. That was 60 years ago! And all these so-called intelligence agencies everywhere are interconnected so it’s a massive network. What kind of cowards could be such arrogant brutes! But you’re right, the wake has them freaked out…they were confident before but they know the tide is rising, and faster than anticipated. Hence the crazy controls showing up. Keep on!

      • Seriously, he worked as an intern – Cooper. I know he has a lot of money, but as soon as I read this, I disscredit you. This is one of the lowest blows lol… Anderson Cooper used as example of support of your thesis… sigh

  3. Don’t forget one of the google guys drowned in his backyard swimming pool at just the right time. Remember Alta Vista? Not many do. Oh and don’t forget google gives away all their products. Gratis. No charge. And yeah, ad revenue. Don’t forget it was google that said of yahoo “no way can a company survive on ad revenue, yahoo’s history”. And they have been trying to kill off yahoo. But maybe they own that too by now. It’s a cowardly way to live and work.

  4. Great post Zen, as always! Johanna, your post was very interesting, I too have noticed, Beauty is not allowed. In Secret Teaching of All Ages, Manley Hall talks about how people are elevated by looking at beautiful structures and conversely, negatively affected by looking at unbalanced structures (I feel so for those living in ghettos). That probably holds true for music and art. That’s also probably why, Frank Lloyd Wright had his personal life affected. His structures elevated the soul. One aside, as I stepped out of Whole Foods today, I was approached by Green Peace for an automatic deduction from my checking account (?!). I told them, “When is Green Peace going to deal with what’s happening with our skies.” “Oh you mean Chemtrails” they said without a beat. Then they went on to tell me how they need my money to address that. I told them when GP comes out with some strong legs and addresses some real issues affecting the world they’ll get my support. If nothing else, maybe I at least made the two young guys think about it.

      • Only problem with them knowing about it is that have also deliberately decided to ignore it. Which is worse, I think. It probably means that they are being told to look up alternative sites, purely so that they can meet their targets-meaning that they are literally selling themselves out.

  5. Blake,
    Just looking up Greenpeace on the web makes me suspect, in that they support anti Global Warming, etc. I feel if they were really in it to save the environment, they would be screaming about our skies, so the fact that they are not, really says so much. So it opens my eyes to the “supposed” friendly organizations. It is so telling that all the big power house environmental groups are mum on this issue that is more critical than anything else they are working on.

  6. Ever thought Google’s early generosity was too good to be true? It was. It has darker plans afoot…see Dr. Leuren Moret you-tube called “H.A.A.R.P., Agenda 21 and Google’s Role In The Sinister DNA Plan”

  7. Some of this is far beyond fascism. For instance, there is more of an agenda to tear down cultural norms, to make people seem foolish for thinking anything is true (even to think of oneself as a man or woman is somehow an offense—no one on the left will fully realize what’s happening if they can’t go beyond the material fed to them). Then there’s the comment about religion. I see no religion on the whole being eliminated. I see them being put in opposition constantly. Fights are being made.

  8. Basically, they need us POOR in order to gain the control they desire! Inflation, the hidden tax, will continue to gut us, on top of regular taxes.

  9. If its not bad enough, your new tv will be watching and listening to you and the new google book is out, and the list is endless, thanks Zen…great work…keep on…



    Heres something NO one talks about and SHOULD..poor little new born baby boys!!!!! Abuse from day One..

  10. Your tv is now watching you and storing if forever…buyer beware:


    I threw mine away, big waste of time! Thanks Z, great site you have…like no other….Here’s the scoop, you buy a new tv, now like the web, it watchs you and stores everything….can you now imagine, even on off mode, much like your cell phone, they can hear you….talk, beauty, love and happiness…they wont’ understand the concept….
