(NaturalNews) The total government control and surveillance nightmare portrayed in the book 1984 has all but fully arrived in the United States as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now implementing its abhorrent spying and recruitment programs at American institutions of higher learning. Kurt Nimmo at PrisonPlanet.com explains how DHS ringleader Janet Napolitano recently established a new Homeland Security Advisory Council composed of 19 university and college presidents, all of whom will be tasked with helping to integrate education and the goals of "national security" into a single entity.

As originally reported in The Kaimin, the independent student newspaper of the University of Montana (UM), UM President Royce Engstrom, for instance, is among the 19 college and university heads who have been chosen by Napolitano to lead this new committee. And one of the specific goals of this committee is to "advise the department on a wide range of issues from how the DHS can better recruit from campuses to emergency preparedness" (http://www.montanakaimin.com).

Published in the Federal Register under Docket No. DHS-2011-0121, the official announcement about the new council goes into further detail about its purpose, explaining that the council will "provide advice and recommendations to the Secretary (Napolitano) and senior leadership on matters relating to student and recent graduate recruitment; international students; academic research; campus and community resiliency; security and preparedness; and faculty exchanges" (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-03-01/html/2012-4897.htm).

Though Napolitano denies that such measures are a federal government ploy to monitor and spy on students and faculty, this description of what the committee is all about appears to imply just that. Similar to its If You See Something, Say Something snitch network (http://www.infowars.com) and its Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams (https://www.naturalnews.com/033961_TSA_security_checkpoints.html), this new academic recruitment and spying effort represents just one more nail in the coffin of liberty.

Submit a comment of opposition to Napolitano's academic spying ring before March 31, 2012
