When the Rule of Force Replaces the Rule of Law: The Emerging American Gulag System

Activist Post

The imposition of a brutal totalitarian system of government, in the annals of history, is far more common than it is not. Some say it was only a matter of time until America regressed into a brutal totalitarian regime similar to what has occurred in the history of our planet.

America is witnessing the Sovietization of its legal system. The similarities are striking, undeniable and should prove frightening to all Americans.

The Soviet Gulag System of Justice Consisted of Two Major Components
  • The “disappearing” of dissidents and anyone suspected of not being 100% loyal to Stalin.
  • Anyone not murdered by the Secret Police upon being secretly arrested, was exploited as slave labor in the re-education camps which would ultimately reward the state-owned corporations.
The Emerging American Gulag System of Justice Consists of Two Major Components
  • The authority of the government to “disappear” and even murder dissidents and anyone suspected of not being loyal to the ruling elite has been granted by the government to itself.
  • Anyone not murdered by the American NDAA agents of totalitarian enforcement, upon being secretly arrested, will be forced into slave labor, which will ultimately benefit select corporations.
The Soviet Gulag System

At the peak of the secret arrests in the 1930s, extreme fear and even paranoia were pervasive in Soviet cities. It was common knowledge that even intellectuals slept with suitcases of warm clothes and supplies ready under their beds. The Soviet Secret Police typically carried out their arrests in the middle of the night, when there would be few if any witnesses. The Soviet citizenry lived in terror of that they would hear the sound of that ominous knock on the door.

Much like present day America, under the PATRIOT Acts I and II, private conversations were scrutinized as much as published work for any possible incriminating comment which could be construed as critical of the ruling regime. Political opportunists took advantage of this insane atmosphere of fear to rid themselves of rivals. Subordinates turned in their bosses in the hope of securing their positions. Rewards were given to informants and government snitches might get improved living accommodations by denouncing a neighbor.

Many of those arrested had their fate decided quickly at the hands of a an execution squad. Those, who initially survived the secret arrest, were transported to prison camps. Repression in the Soviet Union utilized prison camps for political prisoners under the rule of Lenin and then later Stalin.

The Emerging American Gulag System

Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act permits the government to use the military to detain U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers. Political prisoners could easily be tortured and executed because who would ever be in a position to report such a heinous crime by the state?

These inexcusable transgressions against our Constitutional liberties, could have been easily fixed by Congress. The Senate and House had the opportunity during this past month to include in the 2013 version of the NDAA, an unequivocal statement that all U.S. citizens would be exempt from 1021(b)(2), leaving the section to apply only to foreigners. However, our criminal Congress and our criminal President remained silent to the pleas to reform the NDAA in order to conform to the Constitution.

Indefinite detention, torture, and even unsanctioned murder are now legitimized practices of the United States government under Section 1021(b)(2) of the NDAA. America even has developed their own Soviet-style informant matrix in a plot hatched by the Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.

(Did anyone else notice what appeared to be chemtrails in the background of Napolitano’s announcement of the government snitch program?)

At the end of the day, the NDAA makes it likely that knocks on American doors followed by the implementation of Soviet-style justice is in our near future. Unfortunately, this is not where the parallels end. Consider the following for your approbation.

Forced Labor In the Soviet Re-Education Camps

One of the first Soviet forced labor camps was the Solovetsky Special Purpose Camp (SLON), known as Solovki. It was at this camp that the idea was hatched of expanding the prison system into a huge network. It was found that prisoners could be used for labor at practically no cost to the state because prisoners required no wages and only minimal expense for room and board. Prisoners could simply be forced to work until they dropped dead.

The Gulag Camps rapidly spread across the Soviet Union in the 1930s. Administered by the NKVD, the Gulag became a state within a state, with its own laws, government and even its own economy, which some speculate may have been larger than the Soviet state. Camps were located in isolated areas, many in the vast expanses of Siberia, where the climate and the land were often fatal to the political prisoners over time.

Most Soviet citizens who were sent to Siberia, never returned.

The similarities between the old Soviet Gulags and the American prison system are stunning. Consider the following contained in a recent expose by Truthout, as an unidentified female prisoner at Arizona’s state prison, at Perryville, described her day working as a laborer for a private company called Martori Farms.
They wake us up between 2.30 and 3am and kick us out of our housing unit by 3.30am. We get fed at 4am. Our work supervisors show up between 5am and 8am. Then it’s an hour to a one-and-a-half-hour drive to the job site. Then we work eight hours, regardless of conditions … We work in the fields hoeing weeds and thinning plants … 
Currently, we are forced to work in the blazing sun for eight hours. We run out of water several times a day. We ran out of sunscreen several times a week. They don’t check medical backgrounds or ages before they pull women for these jobs. Many of us cannot do it! If we stop working and sit on the bus or even just take an unauthorized break, we get a major ticket which takes away our ‘good time’.

Researcher, Ben Stein, stated that The American Legislative Exchange (ALEC), comprised of a think-tank of 2400 state legislators from the 50 states, write uniform legislation which “has proven expertly capable of devising endless ways to help private corporations benefit from the country’s massive prison population.” This is state-sponsored slavery.

Welcome to the administration of justice, Gulag style. How this does not violate the 13th Amendment’s prohibition on slavery, is a mystery, or maybe it is not so mysterious, when one considers that the Bush family is at the center of privatizing prisons for profit.


Secret arrests, torture and even murder are now part of our legal system, but they are only a means to an end. The criminal elite must be planning something of monumental proportions to go to the lengths that we are witnessing under the auspices of the NDAA and accompanying gun control legislation.

The NDAA is not about protecting us. It is about protecting the state from us.

Perhaps we should all begin sleeping with suitcases of warm clothes and supplies under our collective beds.

Mr. Hodges ... I am relieved and happy to see an American Blogger get the past (especially the tumultuous period of the 1930s and 1940s) the right way around at last!

As I have repeatedly commented at your esteemed website, and at several others during these past recent years ... America's decline and take-over by totalitarians has got little (or nothing) to do with so-called "Nazi" Germany ... and even less to do with Adolf Hitler! ... as megaphone con-jobs like Alex Jones keep attempting to brainwash the global public into believing.

As you have just so well explained, the USA since the Johnson presidency has been on a Bolshevik (Talmudic-collectivism) path. You are being taken over by the same people, the same organizations, and the same ideology that enslaved and destroyed what was (prior to 1914) the great and prosperous nation of Russia ... or more accurately, the Imperial Russian Empire. In short, Obama has been put in place by the Bolshevik Chicago gangsters to try and draw the final curtain on the "theatre of deceit" by openly implementing Bolshevism throughout America.

Current events are also making something else crystal clear. Senator McCarthy is now being posthumously exonerated and proven correct. The charge of "McCarthyism" was always a ruse to intimidate good Americans into being blind to the subversion that was accelerated during the 1930s by communistic immigrants from East Europe and the Soviet Union. Immigrants you were advised back in the 1920s to reject and send back. But your sugary-sweet generosity got the better of your wisdom and instincts!

It now turns out that in reality, Senator Joe McCarthy is one of America's greatest patriots and that his warnings should have been heeded. Instead, the American people tolerated his destruction by media interests, and a few dumb politicians. You live and learn ... yes?

Best wishes from this Brit ... who thinks Piers Morgan is a totally devious joker (and pervert) sent to New York City by Rothschild interests to try and sow yet more confusion (by leveraging the CNN channel) in the finest country God has ever tolerated on this earth.

You guys have got a real fight on your hands, but nothing you couldn't handle and overcome given time. But you do need to get yourselves better organized.

@Anglo Saxon - I was going to say almost the exact same thing, it gets annoying seeing all these people spouting Soviet/Marxist produced anti-National Socialist propaganda about how everything bad or tyrannical is "Nazi", when the Soviets were the ones who actually did do 99% of the things they falsely accused the Germans of doing, and repeatedly blamed their own criminal actions on the Germans(like the Katyn Forest massacre).

Most people are unaware that Hitler's National Socialist German Workers Party took power away from Marxist parties that had controlled Germany for 14 years and that left it in shambles.

Virtually all of the opposition to the National Socialists in Germany came from these Bolshevik backed Marxist parties and organizations.

It was the Marxist "liberals" who stripped the German people of their gun rights between 1919 and 1933, while on the other hand from 1933 through to 1945 the "tyrannical" National Socialists returned many of those Marxist-revoked gun rights to the German people(except the Jews/communists).

See "Gun Control in Germany, 1928-1945" by William L. Pierce -

"Debunks the often-repeated lie that Hitler disarmed the German people and seized their guns. Shows that Hitler actually restored many firearms rights taken away by the previous liberal government. With the complete texts, in English translation and original German, of the relevant firearms laws and ordinances."


Even if you believe as I do that the Germans during WWII committed genocide on a massive scale(forced removal/deportations are genocide too, not just exterminations) it doesn't change the fact that the actual ideology and structure of National Socialism was a very powerful force directed against the same PTB's that are part of the 1% of today.

National Socialism is/was the only system of modern times that within a decade of it's inception posed such a major threat to the existing PTB's that they had to deceive the people of half the world's advanced nations into throwing their men into the meat-grinder of war against that ideology.

They had to maintain war-time propaganda for decades(largely through the multi-billion dollar "Holocaust Industry") after to ensure that ideology is forever dismissed as pure "evil" and ignored completely.

They admitted at Nuremberg(Robert H. Jackson) that the truth about the causes of WWII would cause "infinite damage" to the world's rulers if exposed to the general public.

See Nuremberg Trial transcripts - http://avalon.law.yale.edu/imt/naeve.asp

The National Socialists exposed the truth of their operations and combined that with a typically German highly effective system providing an alternative that threatened those shadow dwellers.

These people could only combat that truth by completely exterminating the National Socialist threat(see Theodore Newman Kaufman's 1941 "Germany Must Perish!") and following that up with legally meaningless show trials to lay all blame for war on the Germans and decades of massive lies and laws against questioning their lies.

I'm no National Socialist myself(I do agree with some things) however I don't have to be to admit that judging by the reaction they got from the shadowy PTB's of the time they obviously were doing something right.

PS - Until late 1944 the Allies did not hold any credibility to what they called the "Jewish atrocity propaganda" of a mass-extermination program carried out by the Nazi's, so it wasn't those alleged crimes that gave cause to fight the Germans as some claim post-hoc.

Beg to differ on McCarthy and the McCartyist backers as being worthy of Hero lable but that would take us a couple hours and a good meal and good beer or wines to debate.
Along with two laptops hooked into Library of congrees and full access to online books as well.
As to Gulag USA what is being written now was talked about way back then but then it was not liberals and democrats but americans in the west and midwest and later their sons called the same enemy "The Man".
The people who got to see and live, and in many cases died because of,the true nature of police forces took not the movers and shakers of society nor the weeping willows and their willys but from anti police rioters and prisoners theselves; miranda is biggest example.
I cannot in over 60 years emember not hearing and witnessing abuse by police, IRS, FBI, and other American elected or appointed officials.
Justice has always been selective in this nation and it was that way because those who had,
wanted it that way.
Police were not and still are not forced to become more militant they crave for it and want even more of it.
Prison systems are set up to punish, abuse, and they do quite well at it, and the public could care less,it is far more conveient to incarcerate and forget on the cheap than the effort to keep corruption out of it.
SWAT Teams are no more than assassins legalized, and the public idolizes them.
The American populace declared war on drugs not the politicos, but the policos were seeind dollars not civil libertys.
Americans idolize their military forces and lionize its members and seperates them into super citizenship and then lets police call them civilians.
The temper of a nation can be judged by its legal system and ous has had distemper for,like I said from way back even unto its foundings.

It is far better and more intellectually satisfying to call a spade a spade. Nazism was a response to Judaism, which in the former Soviet Union perpetrated via the Cheka all of the horrors which we are informed sprang from something called Soviet Marxism. The origins of the latter philosophy derive from a gentleman called Moses Hess, ( 1812-75 ) whose name tells you everything you need to know about the satanic and Jewish origins of the doctrine. He it was who first drafted the Communist Manifesto.
The gradual reintroduction of this Talmudic philosophy into the government of the corporation described as the United States tells us who won WW2. The Allies were in fact stooges and cyphers for the Jews. These latter are the criminals who perpetrated the real holocaust; ie one which involved the actual rather than the media-contrived incineration of tens of thousands of Germans and Japanese. This truly genocidal policy is clearly spelled out in the pages of their until recently secret operational manual, the Talmud. The great English patriot WSC had a Jewish mother, so he was Jewish, according to the tenets of that criminal cabal. He it was who whilst distancing himself from Bomber Harris' civilian bombing campaign, clearly authorized it, doubtless in deference to the wishes of his hidden Jewish controllers and financiers.
I am intrigued to learn from Jonny that deportation is genocide. Perhaps he might like to contact the Oxford English Dictionary New Uses Committee to inform them about his linguistic revelation.

@HereAmI - "I am intrigued to learn from Jonny that deportation is genocide."

I should note that is my personal definition not the legal definition, and it depends on your source for the definition of Genocide. I myself take the definition provided through the Geneva Conventions of 1948/49.

However such definitions would NOT have been able to be used to convict the National Socialists of genocide obviously as they hadn't existed in 1941-1945.

"In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.


As per (c) "Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part" forced deportations and the forced labor camps preparing Jews for the deportations in line with Hitler's often stated goal of bringing about the "complete destruction of the Jewish race in Europe" does qualify as "Genocide" in my view.

"Liquidation of the Jewish problem" in Europe may not have referred to exterminations but certainly did refer to the total destruction of an (alleged) ethnic group across an entire continent through the use of both diplomacy and military force, against that group's will/desires.

However the entire issue of defining "genocide" has always been a subjective one, hence I stated my personal belief of the German actions being genocide and did not mean to imply that everyone must share that definition, or that it was a legally binding definition.

As an added note to HereAmI's post it should be pointed out that it is very important for people to understand at least the basics of the occult symbolism which are used by the national powers.

Bolshevism has the hammer and sickle - with the hammer mythologically derived from the "God of War" Mars aka Thor with his mighty hammer that shook the world; and the sickle representing Cronus the former "good king" turned bad identified with Saturn.

On the other hand the primary symbol of National Socialist Germany was the Swastika, a symbol primarily of Isis, identified with Venus.

In Greek mythology Mars and Venus represent Zeus and Athena who overthrow Saturn/Cronus.

Saturn is the primary god of the "true Jews", hence the Sabbath occupies Satur(ns)day(note that Rome was originally built as "Saturnia").

One of the symbols used by the German SS was the "Black Sun" or "Schwarze Sonne", as can be found decorating the floor of the SS ideological center at Wewelsburg Castle -


The "black sun" represents Mars and Venus together having overthrown and cast Cronus/Saturn into a "thousand year prison of fire" in the underworld.

Hence you have different forces - one which see's Saturn as the "good king" to rule over the others, and the other which see's Saturn as "Satan" having turned "evil" and been cast out of Heaven/Mount Olympus by Zeus and Athena.

It's all about who's on top... heaven above, hell below.

From the Saturnian view you have Saturn as the "upper class", Venus as the "middle class", and Mars as the "lower class"(the dog, original source of "dogs of war" and the term 'Goyim' meaning "less than dogs", "son of a bitch", etc.).

As George Carlin stated - the upper class has all the wealth and power, the middle class does all the work but gets shit on for it, and the lower class exists simply to scare the shit out of the middle class and keep them working.

The swastika representing Venus having the power, representing the "middle class" or "working class" in control of the system was the perfect symbol for the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Both the Bolshevik and National Socialist systems believe in a "New World Order" and both could be viewed as "satanic" or "evil" from the opposing perspective, they just have different ideas of the actual "order" they desire(Saturn in control or Saturn imprisoned/controlled).

The 'Saturn Death Cult' has been at work for a long time and plays a central role in world politics, especially during the 1930's and 40's and today with Agenda 21.

Note also the term Israel which derives from Isis(Venus), Ra(Mars) and El(Saturn) and the central role it/they play in modern geopolitics.

As a few modern pop-culture references to the "Schwarze Sonne" or "Black Sun" I recommend these 4 songs from the group Soundgarden(aka Nude Dragons) -

Black Hole Sun -


Fell on Black Days -


Black Rain (extremely blatant video) -


Burden in my Hand -


"Oh no, there she goes,
Out in the sunshine,
The sun is mine,
The sun is mine..."

Also Linkin Park has a good song called "Burn it Down" that ties in here -


"You told me yes, You held me high,
And I believed when you told that lie;
I played soldier, You played king,
And struck me down when I kissed that ring;
You lost that right, to hold that crown,
I built you up but you let me down;
So when you fall, I'll take my turn,
And fan the flames as your blazes burn"

Saturn cast into the underworld by Mars(the Soldier/God of War) and Venus "burns in hell" in a thousand year prison of fire, and as Saturn's "blazes burn" Venus and Mars take their turn at the top - ending the "Saturn Golden Age".

From a biblical perspective the 'black sun' represents the Jews(Saturn) "exiled" in Babylon(Venus/Mars), with Venus itself being "Lady Babalon".

That 'black sun' symbolism of course ties in with Hitler's goal of forcing an "exodus" of the Jews from Europe, compared to the exiling of the Jews to Babylon by the Jewish media of the time.
