Report from Iron Mountain; Using fear to make people subservient to government.

December 30th, 2010 by

 

© 2002 by G. Edward Griffin

The substance of these stratagems [for the weakening of the United States so it can be more easily merged into a global government based on the model of collectivism] can be traced to a think-tank study released in 1966 called the Report from Iron Mountain. Although the origin of the report is highly debated, the document itself hints that it was commissioned by the Department of Defense under Defense Secretary, Robert McNamara and was produced by the Hudson Institute located at the base of Iron Mountain in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The Hudson Institute was founded and directed by Herman Kahn, formerly of the Rand Corporation. Both McNamara and Kahn were members of the CFR.

The self-proclaimed purpose of the study was to explore various ways to “stabilize society.” Praiseworthy as that may sound, a reading of the Report soon reveals that the word society is used synonymously with the word government. Furthermore, the word stabilize is used as meaning to preserve and to perpetuate. It is clear from the start that the nature of the study was to analyze the different ways a government can perpetuate itself in power, ways to control its citizens and prevent them from rebelling. It was stated at the beginning of the Report that morality was not an issue. The study did not address questions of right or wrong; nor did it deal with such concepts as freedom or human rights. Ideology was not an issue, nor patriotism, nor religious precepts. Its sole concern was how to perpetuate the existing government. The Report said:

Previous studies have taken the desirability of peace, the importance of human life, the superiority of democratic institutions, the greatest “good” for the greatest number, the “dignity” of the individual, the desirability of maximum health and longevity, and other such wishful premises as axiomatic values necessary for the justification of a study of peace issues. We have not found them so. We have attempted to apply the standards of physical science to our thinking, the principal characteristic of which is not quantification, as is popularly believed, but that, in Whitehead’s words, “…it ignores all judgments of value; for instance, all esthetic and moral judgments.” (1)

The major conclusion of the report was that, in the past, war has been the only reliable means to achieve that goal. It contends that only during times of war or the threat of war are the masses compliant enough to carry the yoke of government without complaint. Fear of conquest and pillage by an enemy can make almost any burden seem acceptable by comparison. War can be used to arouse human passion and patriotic feelings of loyalty to the nation’s leaders. No amount of sacrifice in the name of victory will be rejected. Resistance is viewed as treason. But, in times of peace, people become resentful of high taxes, shortages, and bureaucratic intervention. When they become disrespectful of their leaders, they become dangerous. No government has long survived without enemies and armed conflict. War, therefore, has been an indispensable condition for “stabilizing society.” These are the report’s exact words:

The war system not only has been essential to the existence of nations as independent political entities, but has been equally indispensable to their stable political structure. Without it, no government has ever been able to obtain acquiescence in its “legitimacy,” or right to rule its society. The possibility of war provides the sense of external necessity without which no government can long remain in power. The historical record reveals one instance after another where the failure of a regime to maintain the credibility of a war threat led to its dissolution, by the forces of private interest, of reactions to social injustice, or of other disintegrative elements. The organization of society for the possibility of war is its principal political stabilizer…. It has enabled societies to maintain necessary class distinctions, and it has insured the subordination of the citizens to the state by virtue of the residual war powers inherent in the concept of nationhood. (2)

A NEW DEFINITION OF PEACE

The report then explains that we are approaching a point in history where the old formulas may no longer work. Why? Because it may now be possible to create a world government in which all nations will be disarmed and disciplined by a world army, a condition which will be called peace. The report says: “The word peace, as we have used it in the following pages, … implies total and general disarmament.” (3)

Under that scenario, independent nations will no longer exist and governments will not have the capability to wage war. There could be military action by the world army against renegade political subdivisions, but these would be called peace-keeping operations, and soldiers would be called peace keepers. No matter how much property is destroyed or how much blood is spilled, the bullets will be “peaceful” bullets and the bombs – even atomic bombs, if necessary – will be “peaceful” bombs.

The report then raises the question of whether there can ever be a suitable substitute for war. What else could the regional governments use – and what could the world government itself use – to legitimize and perpetuate itself? To provide an answer to that question was the stated purpose of the study.

The Report from Iron Mountain concludes that there can be no substitute for war unless it possesses three properties. It must (1) be economically wasteful, (2) represent a credible threat of great magnitude, and (3) provide a logical excuse for compulsory service to the government.

A SOPHISTICATED FORM OF SLAVERY

On the subject of compulsory service, the Report explains that one of the advantages of standing armies is that they provide a place for the government to put antisocial and dissident elements of society. In the absence of war, these forced-labor battalions would be told they are fighting poverty or cleaning up the planet or bolstering the economy or serving the common good in some other fashion. Every teenager would be required to serve – especially during those years in which young people are most rebellious against authority. Older people, too, would be drafted as a means of working off tax payments and fines. Dissidents would face heavy fines for “hate crimes” and politically incorrect attitudes so, eventually, they would all be in the forced-labor battalions. The Report says:

We will examine … the time-honored use of military institutions to provide anti-social elements with an acceptable role in the social structure. … The current euphemistic clichés – “juvenile delinquency” and “alienation” – have had their counterparts in every age. In earlier days these conditions were dealt with directly by the military without the complications of due process, usually through press gangs or outright enslavement. …

Most proposals that address themselves, explicitly or otherwise, to the postwar problem of controlling the socially alienated turn to some variant of the Peace Corps or the so-called Job Corps for a solution. The socially disaffected, the economically unprepared, the psychologically uncomfortable, the hard-core “delinquents,” the incorrigible “subversives,” and the rest of the unemployable are seen as somehow transformed by the disciplines of a service modeled on military precedent into more or less dedicated social service workers. …

Another possible surrogate for the control of potential enemies of society is the reintroduction, in some form consistent with modern technology and political processes, of slavery. … It is entirely possible that the development of a sophisticated form of slavery may be an absolute prerequisite for social control in a world at peace. As a practical matter, conversion of the code of military discipline to a euphemized form of enslavement would entail surprisingly little revision; the logical first step would be the adoption of some form of “universal” military service. (4)

BLOOD GAMES

The Report considered ways in which the public could be preoccupied with non-important activities so that it would not have time to participate in political debate or resistance. Recreation, trivial game shows, pornography, and situation comedies could play an important role, but blood games were considered to be the most promising of all the options. Blood games are competitive events between individuals or teams that are sufficiently violent in nature to enable the spectators to vicariously work off their frustrations. As a minimum, these events must evoke a passionate team loyalty on the part of the fans and must include the expectation of pain and injury on the part of the players. Even better for their purpose is the spilling of blood and the possibility of death. The common man has a morbid fascination for violence and blood. Crowds gather to chant “Jump! Jump!” at the suicidal figure on a hotel roof. Cars slow to a near stop on the highway to gawk at broken bodies next to a collision.

A schoolyard fight instantly draws a circle of spectators. Boxing matches and football games and hockey games and automobile races are telecast daily, attracting millions of cheering fans who give rapt attention to each moment of danger, each angry blow to the face, each broken bone, each knockout, each carrying away of the unconscious or possibly dying contestant. In this fashion, their anger at “society” is defused and focused, instead, on the opposing team. The emperors of Rome devised the Circuses and gladiator contests and public executions by wild beasts for precisely that purpose.

Before jumping to the conclusion that such concepts are absurd in modern times, recall that during the 1985 European soccer championship in Belgium, the spectators became so emotionally involved in the contest that a bloody riot broke out in the bleachers leaving behind 38 dead and more that 400 injured. U.S. News & World Report gives this account:

The root of the trouble: A tribal loyalty to home teams that surpasses an obsession and, say some experts, has become a substitute religion for many. The worst offenders include members of gangs such as Chelsea’s Anti-Personnel Firm, made up of ill-educated young males who find in soccer rivalry an escape from boredom.

Still, the British do not have a patent on soccer violence. On May 26, eight people were killed and more than 50 injured in Mexico City,… a 1964 stadium riot in Lima, Peru, killed more than 300 – and a hotly disputed 1969 match between El Salvador and Honduras led to a week-long shooting war between the two countries, causing hundreds of casualties.

The U.S. is criticized for the gridiron violence of its favorite sport, football, but outbursts in the bleachers are rare because loyalties are spread among many sports and national pride is not at stake. Said Thomas Tutko, professor of psychology at California’s San Jose State University: “In these other countries, it used to be their armies. Now it’s their competitive teams that stir passions.” (5)

Having considered all the ramifications of blood games, The Report from Iron Mountain concluded that they were not an adequate substitute for war. It is true that violent sports are useful distracters and do, in fact, allow an outlet for boredom and fierce group loyalty, but their effect on the nation’s psyche could not match the intensity of war hysteria. Until a better alternative could be found, world government would have to be postponed so that nations could continue to wage war.

FINDING A CREDIBLE GLOBAL THREAT

In time of war, most citizens uncomplainingly accept their low quality of life and remain fiercely loyal to their leaders. If a suitable substitute for war is to be found, then it must also elicit that same reaction. Therefore, a new enemy must be found that threatens the entire world, and the prospects of being overcome by that enemy must be just as terrifying as war itself. The Report is emphatic on that point:

Allegiance requires a cause; a cause requires an enemy. This much is obvious; the critical point is that the enemy that defines the cause must seem genuinely formidable. Roughly speaking, the presumed power of the “enemy” sufficient to warrant an individual sense of allegiance to a society must be proportionate to the size and complexity of the society. Today, of course, that power must be one of unprecedented magnitude and frightfulness. (6)

The first consideration in finding a suitable threat to serve as a global enemy was that it did not have to be real. A real one would be better, of course, but an invented one would work just as well, provided the masses could be convinced it was real. The public will more readily believe some fictions than others. Credibility would be more important than truth.

Poverty was examined as a potential global enemy but rejected as not fearful enough. Most of the world was already in poverty. Only those who had never experienced poverty would see it as a global threat. For the rest, it was simply a fact of everyday life.

An invasion by aliens from outer space was given serious consideration. The report said that experiments along those lines already may have been tried. Public reaction, however, was not sufficiently predictable, because the threat was not “credible.” Here is what the report had to say:

Credibility, in fact, lies at the heart of the problem of developing a political substitute for war. This is where the space-race proposals, in many ways so well suited as economic substitutes for war, fall short. The most ambitious and unrealistic space project cannot of itself generate a believable external menace. It has been hotly argued that such a menace would offer the “last best hope of peace,” etc., by uniting mankind against the danger of destruction by “creatures” from other planets or from outer space. Experiments have been proposed to test the credibility of an out-of-our-world invasion threat; it is possible that a few of the more difficult-to-explain “flying saucer” incidents of recent years were in fact early experiments of this kind. If so, they could hardly have been judged encouraging. (7)

This report was released in 1966 when the idea of an alien presence seemed far fetched to the average person. In the ensuing years, however, that perception has changed. A growing segment of the population now believes that intelligent life forms may exist beyond our planet and could be monitoring our own civilization. Whether that belief is right or wrong is not the issue here. The point is that a dramatic encounter with aliens shown on network television – even if it were to be entirely fabricated by high-tech computer graphics or laser shows in the sky – could be used to stampede all nations into world government supposedly to defend the Earth from invasion. On the other hand, if the aliens were perceived to have peaceful intent, an alternative scenario would be to form world government to represent a unified human species speaking with a single voice in some kind of galactic federation. Either scenario would be far more credible today than in 1966.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL-POLLUTION MODEL

The final candidate for a useful global threat was pollution of the environment. This was viewed as the most likely to succeed because it could be related to observable conditions such as smog and water pollution– in other words, it would be based partly on fact and, therefore, be credible. Predictions could be made showing end-of-earth scenarios just as horrible as atomic warfare. Accuracy in these predictions would not be important. Their purpose would be to frighten, not to inform. It might even be necessary to deliberately poison the environment to make the predictions more convincing and to focus the public mind on fighting a new enemy, more fearful than any invader from another nation – or even from outer space. The masses would more willingly accept a falling standard of living, tax increases, and bureaucratic intervention in their lives as simply “the price we must pay to save Mother Earth.” A massive battle against death and destruction from global pollution possibly could replace war as justification for social control.

Did The Report from Iron Mountain really say that? It certainly did – and much more. Here are just a few of the pertinent passages:

When it comes to postulating a credible substitute for war … the “alternate enemy” must imply a more immediate, tangible, and directly felt threat of destruction. It must justify the need for taking and paying a “blood price” in wide areas of human concern. In this respect, the possible substitute enemies noted earlier would be insufficient. One exception might be the environmental-pollution model, if the danger to society it posed was genuinely imminent. The fictive models would have to carry the weight of extraordinary conviction, underscored with a not inconsiderable actual sacrifice of life. … It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species. Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power. …

It is true that the rate of pollution could be increased selectively for this purpose. … But the pollution problem has been so widely publicized in recent years that it seems highly improbable that a program of deliberate environmental poisoning could be implemented in a politically acceptable manner.

However unlikely some of the possible alternative enemies we have mentioned may seem, we must emphasize that one must be found of credible quality and magnitude, if a transition to peace is ever to come about without social disintegration. It is more probable, in our judgment, that such a threat will have to be invented. (8)

AUTHENTICITY OF THE REPORT

The Report from Iron Mountain states that it was produced by a Special Study Group of fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it was not intended to be made public. One member of the group, however, felt the Report was too important to be kept under wraps. He was not in disagreement with its conclusions. He merely believed that more people should read it. He delivered his personal copy to Leonard Lewin, a well-known author and columnist who, in turn, negotiated its publication by Dial Press. It was then reprinted by Dell Publishing.

This was during the Johnson Administration, and the President’s Special Assistant for National Security Affairs was CFR member Walt Rostow. Rostow was quick to announce that the report was a spurious work. Herman Kahn, CFR director of the Hudson Institute, said it was not authentic. The Washington Post – which was owned and run by CFR member Katharine Graham – called it “a delightful satire.” Time magazine, founded by CFR-member Henry Luce, said it was a skillful hoax.

Then, on November 26, 1967, the Report was reviewed in the book section of the Washington Post by Herschel McLandress, which was the pen name for Harvard professor John Kenneth Galbraith. Galbraith, who also had been a member of the CFR, said that he knew firsthand of the Report’s authenticity because he had been invited to participate in it. Although he was unable to be part of the official group, he was consulted from time to time and had been asked to keep the project a secret. Furthermore, while he doubted the wisdom of letting the public know about the Report, he agreed totally with its conclusions. He wrote:

As I would put my personal repute behind the authenticity of this document, so would I testify to the validity of its conclusions. My reservations relate only to the wisdom of releasing it to an obviously unconditioned public. (9)

Six weeks later, in an Associated Press dispatch from London, Galbraith went even further and jokingly admitted that he was “a member of the conspiracy.”(10)

That, however, did not settle the issue. The following day, Galbraith backed off. When asked about his “conspiracy” statement, he replied: “For the first time since Charles II The Times has been guilty of a misquotation. … Nothing shakes my conviction that it was written by either Dean Rusk or Mrs. Clare Booth Luce.” (11)

The reporter who conducted the original interview was embarrassed by the allegation and did further research. Six days later, this is what he reported: Misquoting seems to be a hazard to which Professor Galbraith is prone. The latest edition of the Cambridge newspaper Varsity quotes the following (tape recorded) interchange:

Interviewer: “Are you aware of the identity of the author of Report from Iron Mountain?”

Galbraith: “I was in general a member of the conspiracy but I was not the author. I have always assumed that it was the man who wrote the foreword – Mr. Lewin.” (12)

So, on at least three occasions, Galbraith publicly endorsed the authenticity of the Report but denied that he wrote it. Then who did? Was it Leonard Lewin, after all? In 1967 he said he did not. In 1972 he said that he did. Writing in The New York Times Book Review Lewin explained: “I wrote the ‘Report,” all of it. … What I intended was simply to pose the issues of war and peace in a provocative way.” (13)

But wait! A few years before that, columnist William F. Buckley told the New York Times that he was the author. That statement was undoubtedly made tongue-in-cheek, but who and what are we to believe? Was it written by Herman Kahn, John Kenneth Galbraith, Dean Rusk, Clare Booth Luce, Leonard Lewin, or William F. Buckley?

In the final analysis, it makes little difference. The important point is that The Report from Iron Mountain, whether written as a think-tank study or a political satire, explains the reality that surrounds us. Regardless of its origin, the concepts presented in it are now being implemented in almost every detail. All one has to do is hold the Report in one hand and the daily newspaper in the other to realize that every major trend in American life is conforming to the blueprint. So many things that otherwise are incomprehensible suddenly become clear: foreign aid, wasteful spending, the destruction of American industry, a job corps, gun control, a national police force, the apparent demise of Soviet power, a UN army, disarmament, a world bank, a world money, the surrender of national independence through treaties, and the ecology hysteria. The Report from Iron Mountain is an accurate summary of the plan that has already created our present. It is now shaping our future.

ENVIRONMENTALISM A SUBSTITUTE FOR WAR

It is beyond the scope of this study to prove that currently accepted predictions of environmental doom are based on exaggerated and fraudulent “scientific studies.” But such proof is easily found if one is willing to look at the raw data and the assumptions upon which the projections are based. More important, however, is the question of why end-of-world scenarios based on phony scientific studies – or no studies at all – are uncritically publicized by the CFR-controlled media; or why radical environmental groups advocating collectivist doctrine and anti-business programs are lavishly funded by CFR-dominated foundations, banks, and corporations, the very groups that would appear to have the most to lose. The Report from Iron Mountain answers those questions.

As the Report pointed out, truth is not important in these matters. It’s what people can be made to believe that counts. “Credibility” is the key, not reality. There is just enough truth in the fact of environmental pollution to make predictions of planetary doom in the year two-thousand-something seem believable. All that is required is media cooperation and repetition. The plan has apparently worked. People of the industrialized nations have been subjected to a barrage of documentaries, dramas, feature films, ballads, poems, bumper stickers, posters, marches, speeches, seminars, conferences, and concerts. The result has been phenomenal. Politicians are now elected to office on platforms consisting of nothing more than an expressed concern for the environment and a promise to clamp down on those nasty industries. No one questions the damage done to the economy or the nation. It makes no difference when the very planet on which we live is sick and dying. Not one in a thousand will question that underlying premise. How could it be false? Look at all the movie celebrities and rock stars who have joined the movement.

While the followers of the environmental movement are preoccupied with visions of planetary doom, let us see what the leaders are thinking. The first Earth Day was proclaimed on April 22, 1970, at a “Summit” meeting in Rio de Janeiro, attended by environmentalists and politicians from all over the world. A publication widely circulated at that meeting was entitled the Environmental Handbook. The main theme of the book was summarized by a quotation from Princeton Professor Richard A. Falk, a member of the CFR. Falk wrote that there are four interconnected threats to the planet – wars of mass destruction, overpopulation, pollution, and the depletion of resources. Then he said: “The basis of all four problems is the inadequacy of the sovereign states to manage the affairs of mankind in the twentieth century.” (14)

The Handbook continued the CFR line by asking these rhetorical questions: “Are nation-states actually feasible, now that they have power to destroy each other in a single afternoon?… What price would most people be willing to pay for a more durable kind of human organization – more taxes, giving up national flags, perhaps the sacrifice of some of our hard-won liberties?” (15)

In 1989, the CFR-owned Washington Post published an article written by CFR member George Kennan in which he said: “We must prepare instead for … an age where the great enemy is not the Soviet Union, but the rapid deterioration of our planet as a supporting structure for civilized life.” (16)

On March 27, 1990, in the CFR-controlled New York Times, CFR member Michael Oppenheimer wrote: “Global warming, ozone depletion, deforestation and overpopulation are the four horsemen of a looming 21st century apocalypse. … as the cold war recedes, the environment is becoming the No. 1 international security concern.” (17)

CFR member, Lester Brown, heads up another think tank called the Worldwatch Institute. In the Institute’s annual report, entitled State of the World 1991, Brown said that “the battle to save the planet will replace the battle over ideology as the organizing theme of the new world order.” (18)

In the official publication of the 1992 Earth Summit, we find this: “The world community now faces together greater risks to our common security through our impacts on the environment than from traditional military conflicts with one another.”

How many times does it have to be explained? The environmental movement was created by the CFR. It is a substitute for war that they hope will become the emotional and psychological foundation for world government.

HUMANITY ITSELF IS THE TARGET

The Club of Rome is a group of global planners who annually release end-of-world scenarios based on predictions of overpopulation and famine. Their membership is international, but the American roster includes such well-known CFR members as Jimmy Carter, Harlan Cleveland, Claiburne Pell, and Sol Linowitz. Their solution to overpopulation? A world government to control birth rates and, if necessary, euthanasia. That is a gentle word for the deliberate killing of the old, the weak, and of course the uncooperative. Following the same reasoning advanced at Iron Mountain, the Club of Rome has concluded that fear of environmental disaster could be used as a substitute enemy for the purpose of unifying the masses behind its program. In its 1991 book entitled The First Global Revolution, we find this:

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. … All these dangers are caused by human intervention. … The real enemy, then, is humanity itself. (19)

Collectivist theoreticians have always been fascinated by the possibility of controlling population growth. It excites their imaginations because it is the ultimate bureaucratic plan. If the real enemy is humanity itself, as the Club of Rome says, then humanity itself must become the target. Fabian Socialist Bertrand Russell expressed it thus:

I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. … War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. …

A scientific world society cannot be stable unless there is world government. … It will be necessary to find ways of preventing an increase in world population. If this is to be done otherwise than by wars, pestilences and famines, it will demand a powerful international authority. This authority should deal out the world’s food to the various nations in proportion to their population at the time of the establishments of the authority. If any nation subsequently increased its population, it should not on that account receive any more food. The motive for not increasing population would therefore be very compelling. (21)

Very compelling, indeed. These quiet-spoken collectivists are not kidding around. For example, one of the most visible “environmentalists” and advocate of population control was Jacques Cousteau. Interviewed by the United Nations UNESCO Courier in November of 1991, Cousteau spelled it out. He said:

What should we do to eliminate suffering and disease? It is a wonderful idea but perhaps not altogether a beneficial one in the long run. If we try to implement it we may jeopardize the future of our species. It’s terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized, and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldn’t even say it, but it is just as bad not to say it. (22)

GORBACHEV BECOMES AN ECOLOGY WARRIOR

We can now understand how Mikhail Gorbachev, formerly the leader of one of the most repressive governments the world has known, became head of a new organization called the International Green Cross, which supposedly is dedicated to environmental issues. Gorbachev has never denounced collectivism, only the label of a particular brand of collectivism called Communism. His real interest is not ecology but world government with himself assured a major position in the collectivist power structure. In a public appearance in Fulton, Missouri, he praised the Club of Rome, of which he is a member, for its position on population control. Then he said:

One of the worst of the new dangers is ecological. … Today, global climatic shifts; the greenhouse effect; the “ozone hole”; acid rain; contamination of the atmosphere, soil and water by industrial and household waste; the destruction of the forests; etc. all threaten the stability of the planet. (23)

Gorbachev proclaimed that global government was the answer to these threats and that the use of government force was essential. He said: “I believe that the new world order will not be fully realized unless the United Nations and its Security Council create structures … authorized to impose sanctions and make use of other measures of compulsion.” (24)

Here is an arch criminal who fought his way up through the ranks of the Soviet Communist Party, became the protégé of Yuri Andropov, head of the dreaded KGB, was a member of the USSR’s ruling Politburo throughout the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and who was selected by the Politburo in 1985 as the supreme leader of world Communism. All of this was during one of the Soviet’s most dismal periods of human-rights violations and subversive activities against the free world. Furthermore, he ruled over a nation with one of the worst possible records of environmental destruction. At no time while he was in power did he ever say or do anything to show concern over planet Earth.

All that is now forgotten. Gorbachev has been transformed by the CFR-dominated media into an ecology warrior. He is calling for world government and telling us that such a government will use environmental issues as justification for sanctions and other “measures of compulsion.” We cannot say that we were not warned.

U.S. BRANDED AS ECOLOGICAL AGGRESSOR

The use of compulsion is an important point in these plans. People in the industrialized nations are not expected to cooperate in their own demise. They will have to be forced. They will not like it when their food is taken for global distribution. They will not approve when they are taxed by a world authority to finance foreign political projects. They will not voluntarily give up their cars or resettle into smaller houses or communal barracks to satisfy the resource-allocation quotas of a UN agency. Club-of-Rome member Maurice Strong states the problem:

In effect, the United States is committing environmental aggression against the rest of the world. … At the military level, the United States is the custodian. At the environmental level, the United States is clearly the greatest risk. … One of the worst problems in the United States is energy prices – they’re too low. …

It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class … involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and `convenience’ foods, ownership of motor-vehicles, numerous electric household appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning … expansive suburban housing … are not sustainable. (25)

Mr. Strong’s remarks were enthusiastically received by world environmental leaders, but they prompted this angry editorial response in the Arizona Republic:

Translated from eco-speak, this means two things: (1) a reduction in the standard of living in Western nations through massive new taxes and regulations, and (2) a wholesale transfer of wealth from industrialized to under-developed countries. The dubious premise here is that if the U.S. economy could be reduced to, say, the size of Malaysia’s, the world would be a better place. … Most Americans probably would balk at the idea of the U.N. banning automobiles in the U.S. (26)

Who is this Maurice Strong who sees the United States as the environmental aggressor against the world? Does he live in poverty? Does he come from a backward country that is resentful of American prosperity? Does he himself live in modest circumstances, avoiding consumption in order to preserve our natural resources? None of the above. He is one of the wealthiest men in the world. He lives and travels in great comfort. He is a lavish entertainer. In addition to having great personal wealth derived from the oil industry in Canada – which he helped nationalize – Maurice Strong was the Secretary-General of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio; head of the 1972 UN Conference on Human Environment in Stockholm; the first Secretary-General of the UN Environment Program; president of the World Federation of United Nations; co-chairman of the World Economic Forum; member of the Club of Rome; trustee of the Aspen Institute; and a director of the World Future Society. That is probably more than you wanted to know about this man, but it is necessary in order to appreciate the importance of what follows.

A PLOT FOR ECONOMIC CRISIS

Maurice Strong believes – or says that he believes – the world’s ecosystems can be preserved only if the affluent nations of the world can be disciplined into lowering their standard of living. Production and consumption must be curtailed. To bring that about, those nations must submit to rationing, taxation, and political domination by world government. They will probably not do that voluntarily, he says, so they will have to be forced. To accomplish that, it will be necessary to engineer a global monetary crisis which will destroy their economic systems. Then they will have no choice but to accept assistance and control from the UN.

This strategy was revealed in the May, 1990, issue of West magazine, published in Canada. In an article entitled “The Wizard of Baca Grande,” journalist Daniel Wood described his week-long experience at Strong’s private ranch in southern Colorado. This ranch has been visited by such CFR notables as David Rockefeller, Secretary-of-State Henry Kissinger, founder of the World Bank Robert McNamara, and the presidents of such organizations as IBM, Pan Am, and Harvard.

During Wood’s stay at the ranch, the tycoon talked freely about environmentalism and politics. To express his own world view, he said he was planning to write a novel about a group of world leaders who decided to save the planet. As the plot unfolded, it became obvious that it was based on real people and real events. Wood continues the story:

Each year, he explains as background to the telling of the novel’s plot, the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos, Switzerland. Over a thousand CEOs, prime ministers, finance ministers, and leading academics gather in February to attend meetings and set economic agendas for the year ahead. With this as a setting, he then says: “What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? … The group’s conclusion is `no.’ the rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about? …

“This group of world leaders,” he continues, “form a secret society to bring about an economic collapse. It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists. They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodity and stock markets. They’ve engineered, using their access to stock exchanges and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the rest of the world leaders at Davos as hostages. The markets can’t close. The rich countries…” And Strong makes a slight motion with his fingers as if he were flicking a cigarette butt out the window.

I sit there spellbound. This is not any storyteller talking, this is Maurice Strong. He knows these world leaders. He is, in fact, co-chairman of the Council of the World Economic Forum. He sits at the fulcrum of power. He is in a position to do it.“I probably shouldn’t be saying things like this,” he says. (27)

Maurice Strong’s fanciful plot probably shouldn’t be taken too seriously, at least in terms of a literal reading of future events. It is unlikely they will unfold in exactly that manner – although it is not impossible. For one thing, it would not be necessary to hold the leaders of the industrialized nations at gun point. They would be the ones engineering this plot. Leaders from Third-World countries do not have the means to cause a global crisis. That would have to come from the money centers in New York, London, or Tokyo. Furthermore, the masterminds behind this thrust for global government have always resided in the industrialized nations. They have come from the ranks of the CFR in America and from other branches of the International Roundtable in England, France, Belgium, Canada, Japan, and elsewhere. They are the ideological descendants of Cecil Rhodes and they are fulfilling his dream.

It is not important whether or not Maurice Strong’s plot for global economic collapse is to be taken literally. What is important is that men like him are thinking along those lines. As Wood pointed out, they are in a position to do it. Or something like it. If it is not this scenario, they will consider another one with similar consequences. If history has proven anything, it is that men with financial and political power are quite capable of heinous plots against their fellow men. They have launched wars, caused depressions, and created famines to suit their personal agendas. We have little reason to believe that the world leaders of today are more saintly than their predecessors.

Furthermore, we must not be fooled by pretended concern for Mother Earth. The call-to-arms for saving the planet is a gigantic ruse. There is just enough truth to environmental pollution to make the show “credible,” as The Report from Iron Mountain phrased it, but the end-of-earth scenarios which drive the movement forward are bogus. The real objective in all of this is world government, the ultimate doomsday mechanism from which there can be no escape. Destruction of the economic strength of the industrialized nations is merely a necessary prerequisite for ensnaring them into the global web. The thrust of the current ecology movement is directed totally to that end.

SHALL WE DO EVIL BECAUSE WE ARE

OUTNUMBERED?

Incredibly, most people seem incapable of examining both sides of issues that affects society before committing to one uninformed opinion or another; human nature then produces a majority of uninformed citizens who demand that superior numbers prove their opinion is right, and the minority should conform to them. Please correct me if Im wrong, but isn’t this insanely arrogant and obnoxious event called Democracy?

Another equally obnoxious group believes that everyone should be grateful to live in a country where a group of people gets paid obscene amounts of money from private interest to pass laws written by these private interest groups, at the expense of everyone else. They actually believe that, we the people want a government whose sole purpose is to assist certain people in obtaining control over different areas of commerce. Historically, thieves always succeed in a Republic, and a Democracy is always suicidal.

A lack of attention span of the average reader prevents me from more satirical attacks on other forms of governments, so I will get on with my rant and attempt to elucidate what the end result is going to be.

After the bankers who are financing this seemingly never ending chaos have completely destroyed any and all hope of self government, the world will be governed by appointees of these bankers who ruthlessly apply their will over our every thought, word, and deed. The desire to control our own lives will be forgotten, and we will be willing slaves. If that is not enough to make you vomit, it’s only because you have already been brain washed by the education and media industry and you are not capable of seeing what is right in front of your eyes. Only a massive re-education of a hundred million people can save us.

Considering the consequences of being totally dependent on powerful people for our survival, one would think that every person who reads and believes what is here written would be inspired to commit every resource available, and their life, to preventing this horrible tragedy. Sadly, I have found few who are willing to sacrifice anything for the preservation of a free society. Personal valor seems to be some long forgotten attribute of Heros gone by, and an affluent life-style has become an intellectual aphrodisiac that prevents any higher thought. This is hard to accept from a Nation that has been bull-shitted into believing they were born in the land of the free, and the home of the brave. It seems that Hollywood has had more influence than the Lord God.

Whatever the reason is, Americans are only heroes in their own mind, and their actions do not support their narcissistic opinion of their self. Be that as it may, there are a few who will rise up when the shit hits the fan, and we can expect to be the villains in our country's eyes because they are not inclined to be interrupted in their pursuit of a life of luxury and entertainment. Life is too short when there is no savior!

Although I admit it was a piece of propaganda, I remember a film where Jews were being marched into a gas chamber, but one man had more respect for his self and refused to move, preferring instead a bullet in the brain. Over the years, as I learned about the surreptitious control that the International Bankers have had over America, and their plan for the future, this man's defiance has come to represent the epitome of courage to me and I have resolved to make my death an act of defiance and a personal matter. I want the bastard to see the contempt in my eye's. No cowardly self-destruction or killing of innocent by-standers. I want the man who has defeated me to do it. In the mean time I will do all in my power to incite hatred for the Bankers and their appointed scumbags in the hope that people will once again value their freedom over all other pleasures that this depraved world has to offer, and refuse to do evil just because we are out numbered.

THE CROWN TEMPLE BY RULE OF MYSTERY BABYLON

The Templars of the Crown

The governmental and judicial systems within the United States of America, at both federal and local state levels, is owned by the “Crown,” which is a private foreign power. Before jumping to conclusions about the Queen of England or the Royal Families of Britain owning the U.S.A., this is a different “Crown” and is fully exposed and explained below. We are specifically referencing the established Templar Church, known for centuries by the world as the “Crown.” From this point on, we will also refer to the Crown as the Crown Temple or Crown Templar, all three being synonymous.

First, a little historical background. The Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in two parts: the Round and the Chancel. The Round Church was consecrated in 1185 and modeled after the circular Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The Chancel was built in 1240. The Temple Church serves both the Inner and Middle Temples (see below) and is located between Fleet Street and Victoria Embankment at the Thames River. Its grounds also house the Crown Offices at Crown Office Row. This Temple “Church” is outside any Canonical jurisdiction. The Master of the Temple is appointed and takes his place by sealed (non-public) patent, without induction or institution.

All licensed Bar Attorneys – Attorners (see definitions below) – in the U.S. owe their allegiance and give their solemn oath in pledge to the Crown Temple, realizing this or not. This is simply due to the fact that all Bar Associations throughout the world are signatories and franchises to the international Bar Association located at the Inns of Court at Crown Temple, which are physically located at Chancery Lane behind Fleet Street in London. Although they vehemently deny it, all Bar Associations in the U.S., such as the American Bar Association, the Florida Bar, or California Bar Association, are franchises to the Crown.

The Inns of Court (see below, The Four Inns of Court) to the Crown Temple use the Banking and Judicial system of the City of London – a sovereign and independent territory which is not a part of Great Britain (just as Washington City, as DC was called in the 1800’s, is not a part of the north American states, nor is it a state) to defraud, coerce, and manipulate the American people. These Fleet Street bankers and lawyers are committing crimes in America under the guise and color of law (see definitions for legal and lawful below). They are known collectively as the “Crown.” Their lawyers are actually Templar Bar Attornies, not lawyers.

The present Queen of England is not the “Crown,” as we have all been led to believe. Rather, it is the Bankers and Attornies (Attorneys) who are the actual Crown or Crown Temple. The Monarch aristocrats of England have not been ruling sovereigns since the reign of King John, circa 1215. All royal sovereignty of the old British Crown since that time has passed to the Crown Temple in Chancery.

The U.S.A. is not the free and sovereign nation that our federal government tells us it is. If this were true, we would not be dictated to by the Crown Temple through its bankers and attornies. The U.S.A. is controlled and manipulated by this private foreign power and our unlawful Federal U.S. Government is their pawn broker. The bankers and Bar Attorneys in the U.S.A. are a franchise in oath and allegiance to the Crown at Chancery – the Crown Temple Church and its Chancel located at Chancery Lane – a manipulative body of elite bankers and attorners from the independent City of London who violate the law in America by imposing fraudulent “legal” – but totally unlawful – contracts on the American people. The banks Rule the Temple Church and the Attorners carry out their Orders by controlling their victim’s judiciary.

Since the first Chancel of the Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar, this is not a new ruling system by any means. The Chancel, or Chancery, of the Crown Inner Temple Court was where King John was, in January 1215, when the English barons demanded that he confirm the rights enshrined in the Magna Carta. This City of London Temple was the headquarters of the Templar Knights in Great Britain where Order and Rule were first made, which became known as Code. Remember all these terms, such as Crown, Temple, Templar, Knight, Chancel, Chancery, Court, Code, Order and Rule as we tie together their origins with the present American Temple Bar system of thievery by equity (chancery) contracts.

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.”
-Matthew 23:27

By what authority has the “Crown” usurped the natural sovereignty of the American people? Is it acceptable that the U.S. Supreme Court decides constitutional issues in the U.S.A? How can it be considered in any manner as being “constitutional” when this same Supreme Court is appointed by (not elected) and paid by the Federal U.S. Government? As you will soon see, the land called North America belongs to the Crown Temple.

The legal system (judiciary) of the U.S.A. is controlled by the Crown Temple from the independent and sovereign City of London. The private Federal Reserve System, which issues fiat U.S. Federal Reserve Notes, is financially owned and controlled by the Crown from Switzerland, the home and legal origin for the charters of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, and most importantly, the Bank of International Settlements. Even Hitler respected his Crown bankers by not bombing Switzerland. The Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland controls all the central banks of the G7 nations. He who controls the gold rules the world.

The Four Inns of Court to the unholy Temple

Globally, all the legalistic scams promoted by the exclusive monopoly of the Temple Bar and their Bar Association franchises come from four Inns or Temples of Court: the Inner Temple, the Middle TempleLincoln's Inn, andGray's Inn. These Inns/Temples are exclusive and private country clubs; secret societies of world power in commerce. They are well established, some having been founded in the early 1200’s. The Queen and Queen Mother of England are current members of both the Inner Temple and Middle Temple. Gray’s Inn specializes in Taxation legalities by Rule and Code for the Crown. Lincoln’s Inn received its name from the Third Earl of Lincoln (circa 1300).

Just like all U.S. based franchise Bar Associations, none of the Four Inns of the Temple are incorporated – for a definite and purposeful reason: You can’t make claim against a non-entity and a non-being. They are private societies without charters or statutes, and their so-called constitutions are based solely on custom and self-regulation. In other words, they exist as secret societies without a public “front door” unless you’re a private member called to their Bar.

While the Inner Temple holds the legal system franchise by license to steal from Canada and Great Britain, it is the Middle Temple that has legal license to steal from America. This comes about directly via their Bar Association franchises to the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple through the Crown Temple.

From THE HISTORY OF THE INN, Later Centuries, [p.6], written by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, we can see a direct tie to the Bar Association franchises and its Crown signatories in America:

“Call to the Bar or keeping terms in one of the four Inns a pre-requisite to Call at King's Inns until late in the 19th century. In the 17th and 18th centuries, students came from the American colonies and from many of the West Indian islands. The Inn's records would lead one to suppose that for a time there was hardly a young gentleman in Charleston who had not studied here. Five of the signatories to the Declaration of Independence were Middle Templars, and notwithstanding it and its consequences, Americans continued to come here until the War of 1812”.

All Bar Association licensed Attorneys must keep the terms of their oath to the Crown Temple in order to be accepted or “called to Bar” at any of the King’s Inns. Their oath, pledge, and terms of allegiance are made to the Crown Temple.

It’s a real eye opener to know that the Middle Inn of the Crown Temple has publicly acknowledged there were at least five Templar Bar Attornies, under solemn oath only to the Crown, who signed what was alleged to be an American Declaration of Independence. This simply means that both parties to the Declaration agreement were of the same origin, the Crown Temple. In case you don’t understand the importance of this, there is no international agreement or treaty that will ever be honored, or will ever have lawful effect, when the same party signs as both the first and second parties. It’s merely a worthless piece of paper with no lawful authority when both sides to any agreement are actually the same. In reality, the American Declaration of Independence was nothing more than an internal memo of the Crown Temple made among its private members.

By example, Alexander Hamilton was one of those numerous Crown Templars who was called to their Bar. In 1774, he entered King's College in New York City, which was funded by members of the London King’s Inns, now named Columbia University. In 1777, he became a personal aide and private secretary to George Washington during the American Revolution.

In May of 1782, Hamilton began studying law in Albany, New York, and within six months had completed a three year course of studies, passed his examinations, and was admitted to the New York Bar. Of course, the New York Bar Association was/is a franchise of the Crown Temple through the Middle Inn. After a year's service in Congress during the 1782-1783 session, he settled down to legal practice in New York City as Alexander Hamilton, Esqr. In February of 1784, he wrote the charter for, and became a founding member of, the Bank of New York, the State's first bank.

He secured a place on the New York delegation to the Federal Convention of 1787 at Philadelphia. In a five hour speech on June 18th, he stated “an Executive for life will be an elective Monarch”. When all his anti-Federalist New York colleagues withdrew from the Convention in protest, he alone signed the Constitution for the United States of America representing New York State, one of the legal Crown States (Colonies).

One should particularly notice that a lawful state is made up of the people, but a State is a legal entity of the Crown – a Crown Colony. This is an example of the deceptive ways the Crown Temple – Middle Templars – have taken control of America since the beginning of our settlements.

Later, as President Washington’s U.S. Treasury Secretary, Hamilton alone laid the foundation of the first Federal U.S. Central Bank, secured credit loans through Crown banks in France and the Netherlands, and increased the power of the Federal Government over the hoodwinked nation-states of the Union. Hamilton had never made a secret of the fact that he admired the government and fiscal policies of Great Britain.

Americans were fooled into believing that the legal Crown Colonies comprising New England were independent nation states, but they never were nor are today. They were and still are Colonies of the Crown Temple, through letters patent and charters, who have no legal authority to be independent from the Rule and Order of the Crown Temple. A legal State is a Crown Temple Colony.

Neither the American people nor the Queen of Britain own America. The Crown Temple owns America through the deception of those who have sworn their allegiance by oath to the Middle Templar Bar. The Crown Bankers and their Middle Templar Attornies Rule America through unlawful contracts, unlawful taxes, and contract documents of false equity through debt deceit, all strictly enforced by their completely unlawful, but “legal”, Orders, Rules and Codes of the Crown Temple Courts, our so-called “judiciary” in America. This is because the Crown Temple holds the land titles and estate deeds to all of North America.

The biggest lie is what the Crown and its agents refer to as “the rule of law”. In reality, it is not about law at all, but solely about the Crown Rule of all nations. For example, just read what President Bush stated on November 13, 2001, regarding the “rule of law:”

“Our countries are embarked on a new relationship for the 21st century, founded on a commitment to the values of democracy, the free market, and the rule of law.” – Joint Statement by President George W. Bush and President Vladimir V. Putin on 11/13/01, spoken from the White House, Washington D.C.

What happened in 1776?

"Whoever owns the soil, owns all the way to the heavens and to the depths of the earth." – Old Latin maxim and Roman expression.

1776 is the year that will truly live in infamy for all Americans. It is the year that the Crown Colonies became legal Crown States. The Declaration of Independence was a legal, not lawful, document. It was signed on both sides by representatives of the Crown Temple. Legally, it announced the status quo of the Crown Colonies to that of the new legal name called “States” as direct possessive estates of the Crown (see the definitions above to understand the legal trickery that was done).

The American people were hoodwinked into thinking they were declaring lawful independence from the Crown. Proof that the Colonies are still in Crown possession is the use of the word “State” to signify a “legal estate of possession.” Had this been a document of and by the people, both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution would have been written using the word “states”. By the use of “State,” the significance of a government of estate possession was legally established. All of the North American States are Crown Templar possessions through their legal document, signed by their representation of both parties to the contract, known as the Constitution of the United States of America.

All “Constitutional Rights” in America are simply those dictated by the Crown Temple and enforced by the Middle Inn Templars (Bar Attorners) through their franchise and corporate government entity, the federal United States Government. When a “State Citizen” attempts to invoke his “constitutional”, natural, or common law “rights” in Chancery (equity courts), he is told they don’t apply. Why? Simply because a State citizen has no rights outside of the Rule and Codes of Crown “law”. Only a state citizen has natural and common law rights by the paramount authority of God’s Law.

The people who comprise the citizenry of a state are recognized only within natural and common law as is already established by God’s Law. Only a State Citizen can be a party to an action within a State Court. A common state citizen cannot be recognized in that court because he doesn’t legally exist in Crown Chancery Courts. In order to be recognized in their State Courts, the common man must be converted to that of a corporate or legal entity (a legal fiction).

Now you know why they create such an entity using all capital letters within Birth Certificates issued by the State. They convert the common lawful man of God into a fictional legal entity subject to Administration by State Rules, Orders and Codes (there is no “law” within any Rule or Code). Of course, Rules, Codes, etc. do not apply to the lawful common man of the Lord of lords, so the man with inherent Godly law and rights must be converted into a legal “Person” of fictional “status” (another legal term) in order for their legal – but completely unlawful – State Judiciary (Chancery Courts) to have authority over him. Chancery Courts are tribunal courts where the decisions of “justice” are decided by 3 “judges”. This is a direct result of the Crown Temple having invoked their Rule and Code over all judicial courts.

“It is held to be a settled Rule, that our courts can not take notice of any title to land not derived from the State or Colonial government, and duly verified by patent.” -4 Johns. Rep. 163. Jackson v. Waters, 12 Johns. Rep. 365. S.P.

The Crown Temple was granted Letters Patent (see definition above) and Charters (definition below) for all the land (Colonies) of New England by the King of England, a sworn member of the Middle Temple (as the Queen is now). Since the people were giving the patent/charter corporations and Colonial Governours such a hard time, especially concerning Crown taxation, a scheme was devised to allow the Americans to believe they were being granted “independence.” Remember, the Crown Templars represented both parties to the 1776 Declaration of Independence; and, as we are about to see, the latter 1787 U.S. Constitution.

To have this “Declaration” recognized by international treaty law, and in order to establish the new legal Crown entity of the incorporated United States, Middle Templar King George III agreed to the Treaty of Paris on September 3, 1783, “between the Crown of Great Britain and the said United States”. The Crown of Great Britain legally was, then and now, the Crown Temple. This formally gave international recognition to the corporate “United States”, the new Crown Temple States (Colonies). Most important is to know who the actual signatories to the Treaty of Paris were. Take particular note to the abbreviation “Esqr.” following their names (see above definition for ESQUIRE) as this legally signifies “Officers of the King’s Courts”, which we now know were Templar Courts or Crown Courts. This is the same Crown Templar Title given to Alexander Hamilton (see above).

The Crown was represented in signature by “David Hartley, Esqr.”, a Middle Templar of the King’s Court. Representing the United States (a Crown franchise) by signature was “John Adams, Esqr”, “Benjamin Franklin, Esqr.” and “John Jay, Esqr.” The signatories for the “United States” were also Middle Templars of the King’s Court through Bar Association membership. What is plainly written in history proves, once again, that the Crown Temple was representing both parties to the agreement. What a perfect and elaborate scam the people of North America had pulled on them!

It becomes even more obvious when you read Article 5, which states in part,

“to provide for the Restitution of all Estates, Rights, and Properties which have been confiscated, belonging to real British Subjects.”

The Crown Colonies were granted to “persons” and corporations of the Crown Temple through Letters Patent and Charters, and the North American Colonial land was owned by the Crown.

Now, here’s a real catch-all in Article 4:

“It is agreed that creditors on either side shall meet with no lawful impediment to the recovery of the full value in sterling money of all bona fide debts heretofore contracted.”

Since the Crown and its Templars represented both the United States, as the debtors, and the Crown, as the creditors, then they became the creditor of the American people by owning all debts of the former Colonies, now called the legal Crown States. This sounds too good to be true, but these are the facts. The words SCAM and HOODWINKED can’t begin to describe what had taken place.

So then, what debts were owed to the Crown Temple and their banks as of 1883? In the Contract Between the King and the Thirteen United States of North America, signed at Versailles July 16, 1782, Article I states,

“It is agreed and certified that the sums advanced by His Majesty to the Congress of the United States under the title of a loan, in the years 1778, 1779, 1780, 1781, and the present 1782, amount to the sum of eighteen million of livres, money of France, according to the following twenty-one receipts of the above-mentioned underwritten Minister of Congress, given in virtue of his full powers, to wit…”

That amount equals about $18 million dollars, plus interest, that Hamilton’s U.S. Central Bank owed the Crown through Crown Bank loans in France. This was signed, on behalf of the United States, by an already familiar Middle Templar, Benjamin Franklin, Esquire.

An additional $6 million dollars (six million livres) was loaned to the United States at 5% interest by the same parties in a similar Contract signed on February 25, 1783. The Crown Bankers in the Netherlands and France were calling in their debts for payment by future generations of Americans.

The Fiscal Agents of Mystery Babylon

Since its beginnings, the Temple Church at the City of London has been a Knight Templar secret society. It was built and established by the same Temple Knights who were given their Rule and Order by the Roman Pope. It’s very important to know how the British Royal Crown was placed into the hands of the Knights Templars, and how the Crown Templars became the fiscal and military agents for the Pope of the Roman Church.

This all becomes very clear through the Concession Of England To The Pope on May 15, 1213.charter was sworn in fealty by England’s King John to Pope Innocent and the Roman Church. It was witnessed before the Crown Templars, as King John stated upon sealing the same,

“I myself bearing witness in the house of the Knights Templars.”

Pay particular attention to the words being used that we have defined below, especially charter, fealty, demur, and concession:

We wish it to be known to all of you, through this our charter, furnished with our seal… not induced by force or compelled by fear, but of our own good and spontaneous will and by the common counsel of our barons, do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland, with all their rights and appurtenances… we perform and swear fealty for them to him our aforesaid lord pope Innocent, and his catholic successors and the Roman church… binding our successors and our heirs by our wife forever, in similar manner to perform fealty and show homage to him who shall be chief pontiff at that time, and to the Roman church without demur. As a sign… we will and establish perpetual obligation and concession… from the proper and especial revenues of our aforesaid kingdoms… the Roman church shall receive yearly a thousand marks sterling… saving to us and to our heirs our rights, liberties and regalia; all of which things, as they have been described above, we wish to have perpetually valid and firm; and we bind ourselves and our successors not to act counter to them. And if we or any one of our successors shall presume to attempt this, whoever he be, unless being duly warned he come to his kingdom, and this senses, be shall lose his right to the kingdom, and this charter of our obligation and concession shall always remain firm.

Most who have commented on this charter only emphasize the payments due the Pope and the Roman Church. What should be emphasized is the fact that King John broke the terms of this charter by signing the Magna Carta on June 15, 1215. Remember; the penalty for breaking the 1213 agreement was the loss of the Crown (right to the kingdom) to the Pope and his Roman Church. It says so quite plainly. To formally and lawfully take the Crown from the royal monarchs of England by an act of declaration, on August 24, 1215, Pope Innocent III annulled the Magna Carta; later in the year, he placed an Interdict (prohibition) on the entire British empire. From that time until today, the English monarchy and the entire British Crown belonged to the Pope.

The following definitions are all taken from Webster’s 1828 Dictionary since the meanings have not been perverted for nearly 200 years:

FEALTY, n. [L. fidelis.] Fidelity to a lord; faithful adherence of a tenant or vassal to the superior of whom he holds his lands; loyalty. Under the feudal system of tenures, every vassal or tenant was bound to be true and faithful to his lord, and to defend him against all his enemies. This obligation was called his fidelity or fealty, and an oath of fealty was required to be taken by all tenants to their landlords. The tenant was called a liege man; the land, a liege fee; and the superior, liege lord.

FEE, n. [In English, is loan. This word, fee, inland, or an estate in trust, originated among the descendants of the northern conquerors of Italy, but it originated in the south of Europe. See Feud.] Primarily, a loan of land, an estate in trust, granted by a prince or lord, to be held by the grantee on condition of personal service, or other condition; and if the grantee or tenant failed to perform the conditions, the land reverted to the lord or donor, called the landlord, or lend-lord, the lord of the loan. A fee then is any land or tenement held of a superior on certain conditions. It is synonymous with fief and feud. In the United States, an estate in fee or fee simple is what is called in English law an allodial estate, an estate held by a person in his own right, and descendible to the heirs in general.

FEUD, n. [L. fides; Eng. loan.] A fief; a fee; a right to lands or hereditaments held in trust, or on the terms of performing certain conditions; the right which a vassal or tenant has to the lands or other immovable thing of his lord, to use the same and take the profits thereof hereditarily, rendering to his superior such duties and services as belong to military tenure, &c., the property of the soil always remaining in the lord or superior.

By swearing to the 1213 Charter in fealty, King John declared that the British-English Crown and its possessions at that time, including all future possessions, estates, trusts, charters, letters patent, and land, were forever bound to the Pope and the Roman Church, the landlord. Some five hundred years later, the New England Colonies in America became a part of the Crown as a possession and trust named the “United States.”

ATTORNING, ppr. Acknowledging a new lord, or transferring homage and fealty to the purchaser of an estate.

Bar Attorneys have been attorning ever since they were founded at the Temple Church, by acknowledging that the Crown and he who holds the Crown is the new lord of the land.

CHARTER, n. 1. A written instrument, executed with usual forms, given as evidence of a grant, contract, or whatever is done between man and man. In its more usual sense, it is the instrument of a grant conferring powers, rights and privileges, either from a king or other sovereign power, or from a private person, as a charter of exemption, that no person shall be empanelled on a jury, a charter of pardon, &c. The charters under which most of the colonies in America were settled, were given by the king of England, and incorporated certain persons, with powers to hold the lands granted, to establish a government, and make laws for their own regulation. These were called charter-governments.

By agreeing to the Magna Carta, King John had broken the agreement terms of his fealty with Rome and the Pope.

The Pope and his Roman Church control the Crown Temple because his Knights established it under his Orders. He who controls the gold controls the world.

The Crown Temple Today

The workings of the Crown Temple in this day and age is moreso obvious, yet somewhat hidden. The Crown Templars have many names and many symbols to signify their private and unholy Temple. Take a close look at the (alleged) one dollar $1 private Federal Reserve System (a Crown banking franchise) Debt Note.

Notice in the base of the pyramid the Roman date MDCCLXXVI which is written in Roman numerals for the year 1776. The words ANNUIT COEPTIS NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM are Roman Latin for ANNOUNCING THE BIRTH OF THE NEW ORDER OF THE WORLD. Go back to the definitions above and pay particular attention to the words CAPITOL, CROWN and TEMPLE. 1776 signifies the birth of the New World Order under the Crown Temple. That’s when their American Crown Colonies became the chartered government called the United States, thanks to the Declaration of Independence. Since that date, the United Nations (another legal Crown Temple by charter) rose up and refers to every nation as a State member.

The Wizard of Oz = the Crown Temple

This is not a mere child’s story written by L. Frank Baum. What symbol does “Oz” stand for? Ounces.Gold What is the yellow brick road? Bricks or ingot bars of gold.

The character known as the Straw Man represents that fictitious ALL CAPS legal fiction – a PERSON – the Federal U.S. Government created with the same spelling as your Christian birth name. Remember what the Straw Man wanted from the Wizard of Oz? A brain! No legal fiction has a brain because they have no breath of life! What did he get in place of a brain? A Certificate. A Birth Certificate for a new legal creation. He was proud of his new legal status, plus all the other legalisms he was granted. Now he becomes the true epitome of the brainless sack of straw who was given a Certificate in place of a brain of common sense.

What about the Tin Man? Does Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) mean anything to you? The poor TIN Man just stood there mindlessly doing his work until his body literally froze up and stopped functioning. He worked himself to death because he had no heart nor soul. He’s the heartless and emotionless creature robotically carrying out his daily task as if he was already dead. He’s the ox pulling the plow and the mule toiling under the yoke. His masters keep him cold on the outside and heartless on the inside in order to control any emotions or heart he may get a hold of.

The pitiful Cowardly Lion was always too frightened to stand up for himself. Of course, he was a bully and a big mouth when it came to picking on those smaller than he was. They act as if they have great courage, but they really have none at all. All roar with no teeth of authority to back them up. When push came to shove, the Cowardly Lion always buckled under and whimpered when anyone of any size or stature challenged him. He wanted courage from the Grand Wizard, so he was awarded a medal of “official” recognition. Now, regardless of how much of a coward he still was, his official status made him a bully with officially recognized authority. He’s just like the Attorneys who hide behind the Middle Courts of the Temple Bar.

What about the trip through the field of poppies? They weren’t real people, so drugs had no effect on them. The Wizard of Oz was written at the turn of the century, so how could the author have known America was going to be drugged? The Crown has been playing the drug cartel game for centuries. Just look up the history of Hong Kong and the Opium Wars. The Crown already had valuable experience conquering all of China with drugs, so why not the rest of the world?

Who finally exposed the Wizard for what he really was? Toto, the ugly (or cute, depending on your perspective) and somewhat annoying little dog. Toto means “in total, all together; Latin in toto.” Notice how Toto was not scared of the Great Wizard’s theatrics, yet he was so small in size compared to the Wizard, no-one seemed to notice him. The smoke, flames and hologram images were designed to frighten people into doing as the Great Wizard of Oz commanded. Toto simply went over, looked behind the curtain – the court – (see the definition for curtain above), saw it was a scam, and started barking until others paid attention to him and came to see what all the barking was about.Just an ordinary person controlling the levers that created the illusions of the Great Wizard’s power and authority. The veil hiding the corporate legal fiction and its false courts was removed. The Wizard’s game was up. It’s too bad that people don’t realize how loud a bark from a little dog is. How about your bark? Do you just remain silent and wait to be given whatever food and recognition, if any, your legal master gives you?

Let’s not forget those pesky flying monkeys. What a perfect mythical creature to symbolize the Bar Association Attorners who attack and control all the little people for the Great Crown Wizard, the powerful and grand Bankers of Oz – Gold.

What is it going to take to expose the Wizard and tear down the court veil for what they really are? Each of us needs only a brain, a heart and soul, and courage. Then, and most importantly, we all need to learn how to work together. Only “in toto,” working together as one Body of the King of Kings, can we ever be free or have the freedom given under God’s Law.

Mystery Babylon Revealed

There is no mystery behind the current abomination of Babylon for those who discern His Truth:

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
-Revelation 17:5

God has reserved His judgment for the great idolatress, Rome, the chief seat of all idolatry, that rules over many nations with whom the kings have committed to the worship of her idols (see Revelation 17:1-4). The Pope and His purported Church; sitting on the Temple throne at the Vatican; ruling the nations of the earth through the Crown Temple of ungodly deities are the Rule and Order of Babylon; the Crown of godlessness and the Code of commerce.

One may call the Rule of the world today by many names: The New World Order (a Bush family favourite), the Third Way (spoken by Tony Blair and Bill Clinton), the Illuminati, Triad, Triangle, Trinity, Masonry, the United Nations, the EU, the US, or many dozens of other names. However, they all point to one origin and one beginning. We have traced this in history to the Crown Temple, the Temple Church circa 1200. Because the Pope created the Order of the Temple Knights (the Grand Wizards of deception) and established their mighty Temple Church in the sovereign City of London, it is the Pope and his Roman Capitols who control the world.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication”
-Revelation 17:4

This verse appears to be an accurate description of the Pope and His Bishops for the past 1,700 years. The idolatries of commerce in the world: all the gold and silver; the iron and soft metals; the money and coins and riches of the world: All of these are under the control of the Crown Temple; the Roman King and his false Church; the throne of Babylon; attended to by his Templar Knights, the Wizards of abomination and idolatry.

“The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman [mother of harlots] sitteth” – Revelation 17:9

The only mention of “seven mountains” within our present-day Bible is at Revelation 17:9, so it’s no wonder this has been a mystery to the current Body of Christ. The 1611 King James (who was a Crown Templar) Bible is not the entire canon of the early church (“church” in Latin ecclesia; in Greek ekklesia). This in itself is no mystery as history records the existence and destruction of these early church writings; just as history has now proven their genuine authenticity with the appearance of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the coptic library at Nag Hagmadi in Egypt, among many other recent Greek language discoveries within the past 100 years.

The current Holy Bible quotes the Book of Enoch numerous times:

By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, "and was not found, because God had taken him"; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
- Hebrews 11:5

Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying,"Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
- Jude 1:14-15

The Book of Enoch was considered scripture by most early Christians. The earliest literature of the so-called "Church Fathers" is filled with references to this mysterious book. The second century Epistle of Barnabus makes much use of the Book of Enoch. Second and Third Century "Church Fathers," such as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origin and Clement of Alexandria, all make use of the Book of Enoch "Holy Scripture". The Ethiopic Church included the Book of Enoch to its official canon. It was widely known and read the first three centuries after Christ. However, this and many other books became discredited after the Roman Council of Laodicea. Being under ban of the Roman Papal authorities, afterwards they gradually passed out of circulation.

At about the time of the Protestant Reformation, there was a renewed interest in the Book of Enoch, which had long since been lost to the modern world. By the late 1400's, rumors began to spread that a copy of the long lost Book of Enoch might still exist. During this time, many books arose claiming to be the lost book but were later found to be forgeries.

The return of the Book of Enoch to the modern western world is credited to the famous explorer James Bruce, who in 1773 returned from six years in Abyssinia with three Ethiopic copies of the lost book. In 1821, Richard Laurence published the first English translation. The now famous R.H. Charles edition was first published by Oxford Press in 1912. In the following years, several portions of the Greek text also surfaced. Then, with the discovery of cave number four of the Dead Sea Scrolls, seven fragmentary copies of the Aramaic text were discovered.

Within the Book of Enoch is revealed one of the mysteries of Babylon concerning the seven mountains she sits upon (underlining has been added):

[CHAPTER 52] 2 There mine eyes saw all the secret things of heaven that shall be; a mountain of iron, a mountain of copper, a mountain of silver, a mountain of gold, a mountain of soft metal, and a mountain of lead.

6 These [6] mountains which thine eyes have seen: The mountain of iron, the mountain of copper, the mountain of silver, the mountain of gold, the mountain of soft metal, and the mountain of lead. All these shall be in the presence of the Elect One as wax: Before the fire, like the water which streams down from above upon those mountains, and they shall become powerless before his feet. 7 It shall come to pass in those days that none shall be saved, either by gold or by silver, and none be able to escape. 8 There shall be no iron for war, nor shall one clothe oneself with a breastplate. Bronze shall be of no service, tin shall be of no service and shall not be esteemed, and lead shall not be desired. 9 All these things shall be denied and destroyed from the surface of the earth when the Elect One shall appear before the face of the Lord of Spirits.’

[CHAPTER 24] 3 The seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them in height, resembling the seat of a throne; and fragrant trees encircled the throne.

[CHAPTER 25] 3 And he answered saying: ‘This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit the earth with goodness. 4 As for this fragrant tree, no mortal is permitted to touch it until the great judgement when He shall take vengeance on all and bring (everything) to its consummation for ever. 5 It shall then be given to the righteous and Holy. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: It shall be transplanted to the Holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal King. 6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad, and into the Holy place shall they enter; its fragrance shall be in their bones and they shall live a long life on earth, such as thy fathers lived: In their days shall no sorrow, or plague, or torment, or calamity touch them.’

The present wealth and power of all the world’s gold, silver, tin, bronze, pearls, diamonds, gemstones, iron, and copper belonging the Babylon whore, and held in the treasuries of her Crown Templar banks and deep stony vaults, will not be able to save them at the time of the Lord’s judgment.

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
– Matthew 23:13

Where do we go from here?

Now that their false Temple has been exposed, how does this apply to the Kingdom of Heaven? To reach the end, you must know the beginning. For everything ordained of God, there is an imitation ordained of evil that looks like the genuine thing. There is the knowledge of good and the knowledge of evil. The problem is, most believe they have the knowledge of God when what they really have is knowledge of world deceptions operating as gods. The only way to discern and begin to understand the Kingdom of Heaven is to seek the Knowledge that comes only from God, not the knowledge of men who take their legal claim as earthly rulers and gods.

The false Crown Temple and its Grand Wizard Knights have led the world to believe that they are of the Lord God and hold the knowledge and keys to His Kingdom. What they hold within their Temples are the opposite. They claim to be the “Holy Church,” but which holy church? The real one or the false one? Are the Pope and his Roman Church the Temple of God, or is this the unholy Temple of Babylon sitting upon the seven mountains?

They use the same words, but alter them to show the true meaning they have applied: The State is not a state; a Certificate is not a certification. The Roman Church is not the church (ekklesia). There is the Crown of the Lord; and a Crown of that which is not of the Lord. All imitations appear to be the genuine article, but they are fakes. Those who are truly seeking the genuine Kingdom of God must allow the Lord to show them the discernment between the genuine and the imitation. Without this discernment by the Holy Spirit, all will remain fooled by the illusions of false deity emanating from the unholy spirits of the Wizards.

Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
- Luke 17:21

Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the FATHER'S kingdom is within you and it is outside you."
– Gospel of Thomas 3

Don’t you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God lives in you?
– 1 Corinthians 3:16

Jesus said, "Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. [And there is nothing buried that will not be raised."]
– Gospel of Thomas 5

China Shows Elite Hand

China Shows Elite Hand

http://www.thedailybell.com/1626/China-Shows-Elite-Hand.html

12 24 10 by  Staff Report

Fresh humiliation for eurozone as China says it will bail out debt-ridden nations … China has said it is willing to bail out debt-ridden countries in the euro zone using its $2.7 trillion overseas investment fund. In a fresh humiliation for Europe, Foreign Ministry spokesman Jiang Yu said it was one of the most important areas for China's foreign exchange investments. The country has already approached struggling European countries with financial aid, including offering to buy Greece's debt in October and promising to buy $4 billion of Portuguese government debt … China's astonishing economic growth has put it on track to overtake America as the world's economic powerhouse within two years, a recent report claimed. But experts believed still be some years before America's leadership role is really challenged – largely because Beijing has given no indication it is ready to take on the responsibility of shepherding the world' economy. This foray into the future of the euro could be a signal from Beijing that it is ready to change that perception. – Daily Mail

Dominant Social Theme: The Chinese prove concerned world citizens after all.

Free-Market Analysis: Like Hamlet, the elves of the Daily Bell have spilled a good deal of ink in the past months wondering if China's leaders themselves secretly back the world-spanning plans of the Anglo-American elite; in other words if the Chinese government has been co-opted by the Anglosphere's vision of a New World Order. This just announced news about Chinese leaders being willing to contemplate a general bail-out of the EU (we'll see what really happens) is further evidence that our soliloquizing was not merely wasted noise. It would seem, after all, that the great powers are in league with one another.

It is a disturbing phenomenon, if so. The EU is a thoroughly corrupt and illegitimate entity that was sold to its constituents falsely as a trade union and now has aspirations of empire. The Chinese Communist government is not any better in our book, and even worse as a matter of fact. As bad as the Napoleonic justice system is in Europe, (you are guilty until proven innocent) the Chinese system is even worse, with few safeguards for the many executions that take place – and the organ harvesting and other gruesome practices that go on after the fact.

But the corruption runs to the center of society so far as we can tell. For us the Chinese system is very similar to the South American one, which is ironically an elitist model. In many South American countries an elitist few animate the financial anatomy. The big banks, financial firms and large industries are owned or cross-owned by this tiny group while the other 99 percent of society trades cell phones on the street. Nominally, these countries are capitalist, or have a mixed economy, but in reality, the stratification is merely authoritarian.

We see the same pattern in both the EU and China. America, too, which used to have the broadest cross-section of control, has obviously centralized in the past decades as well. (The world is beginning to verge on the SA model.) In any event, it is evident and obvious that most if not all of the major financial interests of China are tightly controlled by the Communist party. But after 60 years of rule, it is also interesting to ask "who controls the Chinese party?" In a previous article – G20 Goes Wrong – we speculated as follows:

The "Li" family in China is commonly held to be the most powerful, with the Lis (or Lees) also seen as controlling Hong Kong and prominent in Korea and perhaps even Singapore. There are questions as to whether these disparate familial groups are linked or not and even how much clout the Li family exercises within China. The Lis are said to operate within the communist party as well as outside of it and were also close to Mao.

Our point was that if elite families had emerged in China (or been there all along) then the Western elites would have counterparties with whom they could do business. We found this somewhat speculative however because we believed Chinese society had undergone so much chaos that it would have been hard for pre-Communist elite families to survive.

The announcement that China is willing to provide virtually unlimited funds to the EU would seem, however, to go a good ways toward confirming that there is elite cooperation at the highest levels. It is in fact a powerful weapon that the EU can now deploy. China does not have to spend the money that it has at the ready (presumably American dollars). It merely needs to make clear that these are disposable dollars. That will surely provide a gut-check for bear raiders.

On a strictly practical level, China's potential aid is a clever move. No doubt there are all sorts of behind-the-scenes advantages that will accrue; plus the obvious ones of increased international clout. We have noted many times that sooner or later the Chinese central banking system is going to create a terrible crash in that great country. The Chinese leaders doubtless know it too. (They struggle with price inflation every day.) Right now the economy is still vibrant and the Chinese are doubtless doing what they can – before they cannot.

There is a Chinese crash coming, we believe. It may be large and deep. The artificial Chinese boom has been going on for at least 20 years, and more likely 30. It is evidently and obviously fueled by "hot" money – printed from nothing – that is flooding the country from overseas and increasingly coming from China's own over-generous printing presses. We have pointed to evidences of whole "ghost cities" – built but unoccupied – and the predilection for the entire Chinese middle class to buy shoddily-made, empty condos as "investments." Supposedly, there are over 60 million apartments (there are few houses) that lie empty in China right now; that translates to housing for some 150 million Chinese, or more than 10 percent of the population.

Whenever the Chinese crash does come, it may do a good deal to push the world into a deeper depression. The powers-that-be must be quite aware of the situation; they invented central banking after all, with its ruinous business cycle. They may even have designed the current downturn to consolidate power and set up the further rudiments of world governance. But because the downturn has proven so deep and intractable, the Anglosphere in particular (which is in overall charge) might have become worried about civil insurrection. Hence the efforts to restart economies and to generate some economic traction amidst all the "austerity." Enter the Chinese …

This latest announcement merely reconfirms what we call the "desperation of the elites." Their enterprises have been exposed by the Internet; Europe is aflame with disapproval over austerity; America is in the grip of a growing anti-establishment political movement called the Tea Party. We see plenty of signs that the Anglosphere, which hypothetically orchestrated this out-of-control Greater Recession, is suffering buyer's remorse and trying every way it can to inject cash into failing Western economies.

The elites, which we believe are possessed of almost inconceivable concentrations of wealth, cannot just pour money into countries. There are laws (generated by the elites themselves) and if these laws are contravened, the elites will find themselves in an even more dangerous situation – having made a mockery of the laws they count on for protection. Thus money must be delivered legally … somehow.

We believe the nutty saga of Foundation X, which went public with an offer to pay down Britain's banking imbalances, is possibly evidence of one failed gambit. Now someone at the top has got the idea that the Chinese hoard of American dollars (we presume) can be used to bail out Europe. What is just as fascinating is that the Chinese have gone along. These are very instructive lessons, in our opinion. The elite, panicked, begins to show its hand.

Conclusion: Does the Anglo-American elite really believe that a Red Chinese bailout of a failing authoritarian construct is going to keep the lid on potential civil unrest? The power elite, as we've pointed out, wants chaos – but the current environment, it would seem, is a bridge too far. The chaos must be controlled and moderated. It must be calibrated. This sort of operational methodology may indeed have worked well in the 20th century; but we would maintain that its implementation is far more questionable in the modern era of technological (Internet) truth-telling.

Down Argentine Way

Down Argentine Way

By Ron Holland

There are many ominous parallels between Argentina and the U.S. and the question often asked is can America avoid the economic consequences that Argentina suffered from a fascist government combined with government debt and currency collapse? I believe the answer is likely NO!

"There are a lot of ways to ruin an economy. Argentina has experimented with most of them. It has devalued its currency, and revalued it. It has pegged it, and then knocked down the peg. It has regulated, controlled, inspected, taxed and confiscated. Following the 2001 crisis, earnings fell by 30% – with half the nation slipping below the official poverty line. What is remarkable is that the Argentine economy has survived at all." – Bill Bonner

Down Argentine Way was the 1940 film that made a star of Betty Grable, who played an attractive young woman on vacation who fell in love with a wealthy racehorse owner. The storyline actually reflected a common occurrence during the 25 years prior to the film debut.

In the early 20th century, "as rich as an Argentine" was a common expression, often used in connection with poor British aristocrats attempting to marry off their daughters to wealthy Argentineans. Argentina was indeed a wealthy nation; for example, we all know about Harrods Department Store in London. Few realize that during this period of Argentine prosperity, Harrods also ran a store in Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires is still a beautiful and interesting city. If you visit, you'll learn that despite all the doom and gloom we hear concerning Washington debt and the dwindling dollar, there is life after debt repudiation and currency collapse. The same thing has been proven in Russia, Germany and other nations numerous times. It has even happened twice in the United States.

"May you live in interesting times" – A Chinese Curse

Since 2008, we've certainly lived in interesting times both in politics and in the markets. The US has tried standard Keynesian economic solutions with exploding deficits and trillions in government debt to solve the problems of mania, bubble and bust in real estate and the economy.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." – Albert Einstein

If you haven't noticed, the world is full of people who appear normal but by Einstein's standard are insane. The problem for us is that many of them are politicians and government "leaders."

Let's Take A Quick Look At Some Insanity Closer To Home

Do you really think voting Democrat or Republican is going to give you less government or more liberty?

Will Americans ever vote in overwhelming numbers for a third-party candidate in a national election?

If you continue to lose money with a particular investment advisor, why do you count on the performance improving next year?

The US has been accumulating trillions in national debt since World War Two. Why would we think this will stop with the latest GOP victory in the House of Representatives or with the success of a few Tea Party candidates?

I believe America will continue down the same road toward less liberty and more debt until we reach the end of the road. There is no political solution using our special elite interests controlled two party system. We will trash the dollar and keep building up our national debt until the world stops buying our Treasury obligations.

In recent weeks, China, Brazil, Germany and France have warned the US to get its dollar and debt problems in order, to no avail. This will continue for quite a while, but just as our current foreign policies are opposed by most of the world, so our financial policies are now being questioned by world leaders and economists. One day the world will have had enough of our dollars and will tire of financing our debt. The dollar will cease to be the world's reserve currency.

There is no way to know when this will happen; it could be next year or a decade from now. My view is before the dollar free-falls and investors flee Treasury debt the Washington politicians will be reaching hard for your wealth, to buy more time for their Madoff-style Ponzi schemes. We will see this begin with the 2011 congress and do not let your guard down because a few principled GOP candidates were elected because most are no better than the Democrats.

There is nothing unique about what we are going through as a nation; it has happened many times throughout history, to other countries. Here in the U.S. we have had so much prosperity that we forget that wealth confiscation and economic collapse are more the norm than the exception.

Look Back At Argentina in 1913

It was an important year.

While the British Empire was first in economic size, only the United States challenged Argentina for the position of the world's second-most powerful economy. The nation was blessed with abundant agriculture, millions of acres of farmland, navigable rivers and an accessible port system.

The country's level of industrialization was substantially higher than in many European countries and railroads, automobiles and telephones were commonplace. Argentina was one of the ten richest nations in the world, and the rate of economic growth from 1870 to 1913 far exceeded that of the United States or Germany.

In 1913 Argentina's GDP reached 72% of the US level. But by 1998 it had fallen to 34%. What went wrong?

Politics and corruption, inflation and currency depreciation were in double digits from 1945 to 1952, from 1956 to 1968 and from 1970 to 1974 And they were in triple digits and then quadruple digits from 1975 to 1990. In 1989, the inflation rate peaked at 5,000%! In one month the Argentine currency fell 64% against the dollar. Finally, on April 28, 1989, the printing presses were shut down because the government ran out of paper for banknotes and the printers went on strike.

Argentina's government defaulted on its debt twice between 1870 and 1914 and again in 1982, 1989, 2002 and 2004 (to foreign creditors). It led the world in selling IOUs to foreign investors, just as America does today.

On December 23, 2001, after GDP had declined 12% for the year, the government announced a moratorium on all foreign debt – $81 billion worth. It was the largest default in history. The 500,000 foreign creditors finally agreed to accept 35 cents on the dollar. China and other creditors of the US government should be looking at what happened in Argentina very closely.

More Ominous Parallels Between Argentina Then & America Today

In 1916 a new president was elected in Argentina; he had a foreign sounding name I can't hope to pronounce it but it is spelled Juan Hipólitodel Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Irigoyen Alem. He led a party called the Radicals, and their slogan was "fundamental change," with an appeal to the lower middle class. Doesn't this platform and campaign rhetoric sound familiar? "Change we can believe in" with a different phrasing.

He advocated a mandatory pension program, like the mandatory or "automatic" IRA" being pushed by the Democrats and some Republicans (including deep thinkers at the supposedly conservative Heritage Foundation).

He wanted mandatory health insurance and supported construction of low-income housing to stimulate the economy. Basically, like the American bailouts of 2008, in Argentina the state assumed control of a vast swath of the country's economy and began assessing new payroll taxes to fund its efforts.

Does This Remind You Of the United States Today?

With an increasing flow of funds into these entitlement programs, the Argentine government's payouts quickly became overly generous. Soon the government outlays surpassed the value of the forced taxpayer contributions. Put simply, it quickly became underfunded, much like our Social Security and Medicare programs are today.

The death knell for the Argentine economy, however, came with the election of Juan Peron. He preached a fascist and corporatist philosophy much like Mussolini in Italy. He and his charismatic wife, Evita, first targeted their populist rhetoric at the nation's rich. But as time went on the targeted group expanded to include most of the propertied middle class, who also became an enemy to be defeated and looted. Under Peron, the size of government bureaucracies exploded through massive programs of social spending and by encouraging the growth of labor unions.

Again, does this sound familiar? Remember that the automobile industry bailout was directed far more toward supporting unions and their underfunded retirement and health plans than helping GM or Chrysler. It was the same on the GOP side when Washington bailed out much of the corrupt and failing big players in the American and foreign banking systems. Trillions for Wall Street and zero for main street.

In Argentina, high taxes and economic mismanagement continued to take their toll, even after Peron had been driven from office. His socialist/populist rhetoric and ignorance of free-market economics remained on the political scene as Argentina's federal government continued to spend far beyond its means, just like America today.

Hyperinflation exploded in 1989, which is usually the final stage of collapse brought on by protectionist policies, inflated salaries and bureaucratic regulation of the economy. The Argentinean government's practice of printing money to pay its debts crushed the economy when inflation reached heights reminiscent of the Weimar Republic. Food riots were rampant; stores were looted; the country descended into chaos.

By 1994, Argentina's public pensions – the equivalent of Social Security – had imploded. The payroll tax had increased from 5% to 26%, but it wasn't enough. So Argentina implemented a value-added tax (VAT), new income taxes and a personal tax on wealth. These crushed the private sector. I fear we will soon see a similar increase in Social Security payroll taxes over the next decade in the US.

A government-controlled "privatization" effort to rescue seniors' pensions was attempted. But by 2001 even those funds had been raided by the government, the monies replaced with defaulted Argentine government bonds. (You can read more about how this could happen in the United States in my)

(Get Ready for the Obama Retirement Trap.) at http://www.lewrockwell.com/holland/holland12.1.html

By 2002, the Argentine government's fiscal irresponsibility had produced a national economic crisis as severe as America's Great Depression.

Our problems promise to produce worse. The dollar is still the world's reserve currency, and our fall will resound in a way that Argentina's did not. Germany, China, France and other nations have warned us that there is limited tolerance for continued U.S. money printing. The jury is still out; but if the printing continues, America is not going to like the verdict.

America Runs the Risk of Being Blamed for the Greatest Depression

There are, as we have seen, parallels between Argentina and the road the US has taken. Following the 2008 meltdown, the entire world is in a tough situation. The US, predictably, has decided on currency depreciation to "solve" its problems. Germany, China and Russia express their displeasure.

The United States, doubtless, will be blamed for the coming meltdown. Other countries fear quite rightly what they have seen before, a tidal wave of repudiation and currency depreciation that could dramatically change the world. They know the US will postpone the inevitable – but sooner or later the cumulative impact of profligacy, waste and corruption will become unstoppable. The US economy will likely implode, taking the current world order with it.

We are living in the midst of a paradigm shift; the Internet is having an impact on politics, information and financial markets. Such a transformation has happened before, with Gutenberg's printing press in the 1500s, which destroyed the existing power structure and left Europe in turmoil. The invention of the press did to the religion, to the state and to the economy of the 16th century what the Internet is doing to Western society today.

This is an exciting transition period, when every established institution, from the FED to the two-party political system to Wall Street to our banking system, is being questioned and challenged by the alternative press of which we are part. Truth and change may be good in the long run, but in the near term they stress the system much like national bankruptcy and debt repudiation did in Argentina.

America Is the New Argentina!

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to always tell the difference." –Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Right now we can't change the direction our nation is heading, but with courage we can still take action now to defend our wealth while we work toward political change. The economic lesson to be learned from the Argentina experience is wealth and resources can be destroyed by big government and financial mismanagement. The United States is following a path similar to Argentina's. Our political and financial leaders are doing the same thing that those in Argentina did and somehow expecting the outcome to be different this time.

The results will not be any different. Protect your wealth, and help us warn and educate the public through your support of the foundations like the Mises Institute and the Foundation for the Advancement of Free-Market Thinking.

The Coming Obama Retirement Trap Has Started!

by Ron Holland

Mandatory IRAs just proposed by Obama Administration on 1/25/10 is the 1st step in stealth nationalization & forced investment of our retirement benefits to support the treasury debt market! Read the veiled report in Business Week. http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-01-25/mandatory-iras-may-burden-small-employers-business-group-says.html%20

 

A Personal Note from the Author

 

Dear Concerned American:

I begin with a quote from a politician who believed in an all-powerful central government and in using that power to achieve his vision for a nation. "He who has his thumb on the purse has the power." ~ Otto von Bismarck, a statesman who created the modern Germany and known as the iron chancellor

But however well-intentioned he might have been, he built the regulatory groundwork and government institutions for a centralized federal state that was later taken over by an evil political leader who created a tyranny seldom seen in the world before, or after. The tyranny started in 1933, 35 years after Bismarck's death, was National Socialism and the leader was Adolf Hitler. All of this came after Germany's military defeat in World War One and a national debt crisis, followed by hyperinflation and currency collapse

I fear that today the control, nationalization and ultimate confiscation of trillions in private US retirement plan assets is on the horizon. Rick Santelli alluded to the possible nationalization and forced investment into treasuries on CNBC as recently as January 8, 2010. There was also similar coverage on Bloomberg and Business Week.

Reports out of Washington indicate that new retirement annuities may be promoted by Obama aides. This is just the beginning! The question every successful American with substantial retirement assets must ask is "what will you do if our retirement funds are forced to become the buyer of last resort for US treasury obligations?" Unless you believe Congress and Washington bureaucrats will do a fair job of allocating and distributing your personal retirement assets between yourself and others, you must begin now to protect your assets.

As the United States moves into a new decade of military overreach abroad and national bankruptcy at home, Washington is on a desperate search for more revenue and a solution to the future financing of the trillions in national debt obligations currently held by foreign central banks and investors. Economists, politicians and smart investors know the dollar's days as the world reserve currency are numbered, as is our ability to finance the national debt.

Although the historical government solution to unsustainable government debt loads has always been the destruction of the debts by currency depreciation and eventual hyperinflation, there is always an intermediate step used to buy more time for the politicians in power. This action, usually side-stepped and downplayed by the establishment historians paid to hide the real facts of history, is wealth confiscation. Napoleon had it right when he stated, "History is a state of lies agreed upon."

The largest source of liquid private wealth remaining in the United States is the $15 trillion in private retirement funds. The ultimate ownership, control and future of these funds has already been compromised and exchanged for the favorable tax treatment of private retirement plans. Congress writes the laws, so they can tax, penalize, hold your funds hostage and, although they'd never use the word "confiscate," use your assets at their discretion.

 

The retirement trap I'm writing about is only a proposal at the present time and since it may well begin in the latter years of the Obama Administration, assuming the Democrats can somehow maintain their majorities in Congress, I'm calling it the "Obama Retirement Trap." But make no mistake, the government need for current revenue and their frenzied search for liquidity to monetize their debt obligations is an unspoken quest of both political parties. The establishments of both political parties will do whatever it takes to stay in power, including the raiding and pillaging of your retirement funds.

I am not a Johnny-come-lately to the area of retirement planning. Although I've been in the investment business since the early 1970's, and often write about political and freedom-oriented issues, my background has always been in retirement planning. I've been following the government move to raid private retirement funds since the early 1980's with my The Threat of the Private Retirement System book written in 1983. I warned again about this in my 1994 book Escape the Pension Trap. The threat receded somewhat with the Bush Administration, but it is now back with a vengeance and the revenue needs of Washington will eventually trump any government promises and guarantees.

I created the first self-directed hard asset IRA account for gold and collectibles back in the late 1970's and I still remember the day when I was sitting in the office of James U. Blanchard III, a champion of liberty and sound money, in New Orleans. His National Committee to Legalize Gold spearheaded a nationwide grassroots campaign that restored the right of Americans to again own gold bullion following Roosevelt's gold confiscation during the 1930's Great Depression.

Congressman Ron Paul gave us a call to inform us that at the last minute, language had been inserted into the 1981 Economic Recovery Act, Section 314(b) ruling "collectibles" as not in the "public interest" of the United States and, therefore, prohibited from future retirement plan investments. This language promoted by Wall Street and the banks destroyed the opportunity to buy retirement investments performing best during those years of high inflation. More importantly, this section created a precedent for the Secretary of the Treasury to label any investment as not in the public interest in the future — and therefore prohibited from retirement plans.

You will be forced into another Social Security-like scheme with the proposed mandatory Guaranteed Retirement Annuity, with 5% of your salary confiscated into the program. You will also eventually find your existing retirement funds forced into the government program and you will lose your ability to invest and protect your retirement funds outside of the dollar, government bonds, and the US investment markets at some time in the future. The only questions are when and what the final details of this, the greatest potential wealth confiscation in the history of the world, will be.

My goal in writing this report is to make you aware of the threat with enough time to take some of my recommended actions to protect your retirement wealth, and thereby minimizing the Washington threat and their future confiscation efforts. Conventional retirement experts and most Wall Street investment advisors will say that I'm paranoid and crazy to advance such a theory because they want to retain the management, the fees and the commissions from your retirement investments.

The risks and threats of standing up to Washington's wealth confiscation and aggression are great. But we have to take a stand. One of the greatest men in history I've studied was a relatively unknown, career army colonel coming from a respected family who lived right across the river from the nation's capitol. Just before the start of a war, the head of the nation offered this officer the opportunity to take command of the entire national army if he would only lead an invasion and turn against his state and people. This officer declined the offer and all that went with it. The head of the nation was so outraged that he had the officer's home and plantation occupied, confiscated and used as a burial ground for the war dead, never to be returned to his family or their desendents.

The president was Abraham Lincoln, the colonel was Robert E. Lee and his home, called Arlington, is now known as Arlington National Cemetery right across the Potomac River from Washington, DC.

"Sirs, my name is the heritage of my parents. It is all I have, and it is not for sale. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more, you should never wish to do less." ~ Robert E. Lee

I believe the best retirement planning advice I can offer to successful individuals is to do exactly the opposite of what the government and most retirement or investment professionals suggest. Washington always recommends what is in their best interest, as do most bankers and investment firms, the so-called financial experts who just received trillions in bailouts and guarantees with your tax dollars.

Can you appreciate the irony and hypocrisy of financial institutions like Merrill Lynch or the Bank of America, just to mention a few, who have so little respect for the American public that they can still advertise to manage your investments or even handle your day-to-day banking needs when both went technically bankrupt? They pay themselves outlandish bonuses, yet they only survive in business at all because of the billions in bailouts and guarantees paid for by you, the American taxpayers, and forced on you through the lobbyists they used to buy the bailout votes in Congress.

I'm retired from the investment business. But I want to warn the American public about the growing threat to our retirement assets and benefits from a government gone wild, desperate for revenue, and looking for funds to buy their increasingly risky and ultimately worthless treasury obligations. You've been warned, I've done my duty as an American and an expert in the field. The rest is up to you.             

Key Elements of the Obama Retirement Trap

Stealth Nationalization

Following their attempt at "so-called" health care reform in 2009 and 2010 — the first step in total nationalization of health care — Washington will next turn its attention to another broken program, the private retirement system. Although both health care and the private retirement system need real reform, the government, as usual, will use the problems to expand federal control and redirect the contributions currently going into quasi-private programs back towards the bankrupt coffers of the federal government.

Your Retirement Plan Will Soon Become Washington's ATM Machine

 

Today over $15 trillion is sitting in tax-favored retirement plans, including $4 trillion in IRA accounts. Retirement savings make up 35% of all private assets. Washington is broke, the deficit is soaring and Congress simply can't wait for Americans to retire so they can start taxing these funds. The politicians are tired of waiting; they need your money now.

The Trojan Horse

The nationalization will begin with a modest proposal to increase retirement security and basically create a new, third level of mandatory retirement benefits in addition to private plans and Social Security. This will be described as a Guaranteed Retirement Annuity or Account. Teresa Ghilarducci is the author of this leftist plan which first appeared in 2007 at the Economic Policy Institute: Agenda for Shared Prosperity. In 2008, she became the new Director of the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at the New School for Social Research. In her book When I'm 64: The Plot Against Pensions and the Plan To Save Them, she hypes her retirement solution for millions who do not have adequate retirement savings. Her ultimate solution is to confiscate most of the retirement assets of successful and wealthy Americans.

In the proposal, the government will even make an annual contribution to every citizen's account of around $600 annually, covering the unemployed, under-employed and all working Americans. The initial problem for productive, successful Americans is that Washington will require, in exchange for their contribution, that all working Americans contribute 5% of their annual salaries or income into this new "guaranteed account" managed and run by the hard-working bureaucrats at the Social Security System. Successful Americans will of course complain about losing the deduction for this contribution, which is little more than a new 5% tax on income. But this is just the beginning of the problem for Americans with substantial retirement savings and outstanding benefits.

The Devil Is In the Details

Different proposals would delay retirement age until age 64, and some even later. The guaranteed retirement annuity would be structured to allow the government to hold and invest the money. Unlike your current private plan, it would be very difficult for members to withdraw their money before and even after retirement, except over the life expectancy of the participant.

I fear, following implementation of the contributory GRA program, a future legislative action by Congress would be to end the tax deductions and tax-deferred growth of all retirement plans, thus forcing these funds into the government controlled annuity. Your forced retirement contributions would be pooled and professionally managed by Social Security. Also, beneficiaries would be cheated out of half of any benefits remaining at the death of a participant because Ghilarducci's plan has 50% of all balances at death reverting to the Feds, not the beneficiaries.

The Confiscation Event

At some time during the next decade, a global run on treasury debt and the dollar will also likely take the American stock market down past lows not seen since the financial meltdown crisis in 2008 and 2009. The 50% to 75% stock market pullback during the actual bankruptcy of the Washington debt and paper dollar will send shock waves through retirees and current plan participants as their private retirement plan balances plummet.

At this time, Washington will "come to the rescue" and guarantee all private retirement plan market values back to pre-crisis levels. The gullible American public will overwhelmingly support this effort by switching their dwindling funds into the Guaranteed Retirement Annuity managed by the government. For the first few years, Washington will probably label those few of us who warn that Americans have lost their retirement benefits as extremists, Ron Paul paranoids and Tea Party advocates.

Then it will become crystal clear to all Americans that their retirement benefits have been given away for a promise by an evil group of plunderers who have never in their history kept a promise, a guarantee, or their word on anything. The greatest theft of wealth in the history of the world will have taken place and only those few who took heed of an early warning will still have their retirement benefits and security.

You Will Be Forced To Become The Final Buyer of Last Resort For Collapsing Washington Treasury Obligations

Although the faltering dollar could rebound in the short run, the longer-term prognosis is terminal unless Washington dramatically reduces spending and borrowing. When the global run on treasury debt and the dollar develops, the current relative minor fluctuations in values today will be replaced by a virulent death spiral of historic proportions rarely seen in world history.

Sometime in the next decade, the Washington dollar collapse will take its shameful place in history at the pinnacle of fiat currency robberies by politicians and central bankers. We will lead the world in wealth lost and future generations saddled by illegitimate government debts.

In the meantime, Americans should insulate themselves from the coming dollar and debt debacle by investing in gold bullion stored in the US, as well as outside, in secure facilities like the one offered by Global Gold Inc. in Switzerland, through mining shares, as well as through foreign currency diversification with the euro and Swiss franc. Don't wait, take action now while you still have the opportunity to protect and preserve your wealth.

In the future, when the rest of the world's investors, governments and central banks have lost enough purchasing power through their misguided investment in Washington treasury obligations, they will still have the luxury and financial freedom to diversify maturing treasury obligations and new funds into other non-dollar bonds, gold etc. But Americans will not have this choice. They will find that their retirement funds in the mandatory guaranteed retirement annuity will be used to purchase much of the rollover of treasury debt not repurchased by the Federal Reserve System.

The taxpayers will be forced to become the buyer of last resort in the final collapse of Washington treasury obligations. This is sort like being forced to purchase stock in AIG weeks before the final stock crash.

You Are A Narrow Target of Opportunity: Not A Grand Conspiracy

 

This is just another revenue generator for Washington and a payback for the unions, just like the planned nationalization of health care. The target is successful, productive Americans who make good annual incomes or who have been frugal and built up substantial retirement benefits in qualified plans.

There Will Be No Public Outcry Like With Nationalized Health Care

 

Don't expect a broad public reaction to the stealth nationalization to protect your hard-earned benefits. Most unemployed, underemployed, union workers in failing union plans, and eventually state and local government employees will benefit from this attack on the retirement assets of productive, successful Americans working in the private sector. You are a minority and the mob rule of democracy warned about by Thomas Jefferson is just doing what it has always done. But this time with you as the target.

"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people take away the rights of the other forty-nine." ~ Thomas Jefferson

Don't Cry For Us Argentina

Bankrupt governments have a recent history of confiscating and nationalizing private retirement programs. Back on October 21, 2008, Fernandez de Kirchner, the president of Argentina, announced plans to take over $29 billion of private pension accounts, saying a state-run system would protect retirees from fluctuations in financial markets. Roque Fernandez, an economy minister and central bank president in the 1990's, said the move is a "confiscation" of people's savings.

How the Government Benefits From the Guaranteed Retirement Annuity

Initially, the government will receive a dramatic increase in revenue as Americans will be required to contribute (without a deduction) 5% of their annual income (without a cap like Social Security) into the GRA. These contributions will be accounted for in some type of statement, but the actual funds will disappear into the Washington coffers just like your annual Social Security taxes.

Secondly, the eventual loss of contribution deductions and tax-deferred growth in competing private plans will kill them and either a real or contrived financial crisis or tax rules will force most of these funds down the road into the government GRA accounts. Again, trillions of dollars will vanish into the black hole of Washington, Social Security and whatever vested private interests buy their way into management of the program. These trillions in vested retirement funds and benefits will be replaced with a Washington promise to pay you the benefits promised over your life expectancy so the actual costs to the government will be spread over many decades long after your funds have been hijacked for federal programs and government bond purchases.

The final and most important government benefit will be to use the trillions in nationalized private retirement funds first to pay the future annuity benefits. But secondarily, they will use the funds as a slush fund to invest in Washington treasury obligations as a final stop-gap measure as the rest of the world walks away from US government debt obligations and the dollar at some time in the future.

The Majority of Low Income & Union Members Will Benefit At Your Expense

 

For individuals, the proposal suggests if your annual income is under $12,000 per year, or if you are unemployed or never worked, then this program will benefit you because the proposal calls for a $600 per year contribution to be made to the GRA account of most Americans. Other lower income people will benefit from more of their income being forced into the GRA if they have enough disposable income to pay for their day-to-day expenses. Otherwise, this program, like most Washington efforts, will take away from Americans in the middle and upper income levels.

The main groups that will benefit from the retirement plan nationalization, in addition to Washington benefitting from increased revenues, are first the inefficient, overpaid automobile unions and their workers primarily in the northern Midwest rust belt areas. This proposal is first and foremost a government revenue generator, but second a bailout of underfunded, mismanaged and corrupt union retirement plans.

Later, as local and state governments continue to flirt with bankruptcy, the GRA funds will likely be utilized to bail out state and local government plans. These underfunded programs will be merged into the GRA program with the benefits paid again by the confiscated funds from participants, or with what the government will consider over-funded benefits.

There Is Always A Crisis Just When the Public Needs To Be Motivated

 

"Nothing just happens in politics. If something happens you can be sure it was planned that way." 

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Have you ever noticed how lucky democratic political leaders are when public opinion needs to change. From Fort Sumter at the beginning of the Civil War to the explosion of the battleship Maine starting the Spanish-American War. From the sinking of the Lusitania getting the US into World War One to the creation of the Federal Reserve in response to earlier financial panics. From the Gulf of Tonkin attack and the Vietnam War to the surprise of Pearl Harbor and the Second World War. Then, in today's age, consider 9/11, Osama, and Afghanistan giving rise suddenly to the Patriot Act and an entirely new foreign policy.

Economic, political and foreign policy crises, actions and responses have the unique ability of molding public opinion almost always behind the government. We saw this in the demands for a bailout of Wall Street when the word "depression" was used in every government and political announcement until the bailout funds were secured, then the word "recovery" became the "word of the day." It will be the same when the global run on Washington treasury debt and the dollar happens. Asset values will tumble and suddenly Washington will have the perfect solution to solve your loss in portfolio values and the debt crisis.

What Would Spark this Nationalization?

A plan this radical cannot just slip through Congress. It can only ride into law on a first-class national crisis. As we've mentioned, somehow the politicians are always able to find one when they need one.

Loss of Triple-A Status for U.S. Treasury Bonds

The loss of triple-A status for Treasury bonds is the most likely trigger. And according to Steven Hess, Moody's lead analyst for the U.S., it's not that far-fetched. He states, "The AAA rating of the U.S. is not guaranteed. So if they don't get the deficit down in the next 3 to 4 years to a sustainable level, then the rating will be in jeopardy."

Terrorist Attack or Military Disaster

A terrorist attack or a military disaster like the collapse of Pakistan or an Israel/Iran conflict and disruption of oil shipments could close American markets just as we saw in 2001. That would create a financial crisis overnight.

Another Economic Meltdown

After years of deficits, the greatest hazard to our economy is a run on the dollar and on treasury securities by foreign investors. Although America's foreign creditors don't want to start a run on national debt — they prefer a slow, orderly retreat — no one intends to be the last to head for the exit. Political or economic pressures in Asia could force Japan or China to take immediate action, dump our debt, and knock the prices down to fire-sale levels.

What happens if China decides to cut its losses on U.S. Treasuries and issues a $100 billion sell order? That's only 10% of their holdings, but it could set off panic selling of dollar-denominated bonds and crush the U.S. stock market like an egg shell. Mortgage rates would spike, which would suck the housing market into another air pocket. The President would probably sign an Executive Order closing the markets until order could be restored.

Any of those events would take place in an atmosphere of deep public worry and fear. That's when Washington would come to your rescue and guarantee to restore your retirement funds back to a "pre-crash" level. How nice, right? However, in exchange you would need to "voluntarily" move your retirement assets into your new Guaranteed Retirement Account.

Implications for Those Who Say "No"

For those who don't sign up for a GRA because they're not fooled by the dangled carrot, there would be sticks to consider:

Additional withdrawal penalties and wealth taxes on their retirement plan.

Limitations on permissible investments — nothing that isn't "in the public interest."

Mandatory minimum holdings for targeted investments, such as Treasury obligations.

An end to offshore investments that could protect your wealth and actually benefit investors during a time of hyperinflation.

Remember, these retirement proposals are just in the discussion stage but progressives are promoting this confiscation agenda to the Obama Administration as a new source of revenue for a bankrupt federal government desperate for additional sources of revenue. When the next economic or stock market crisis hits, your retirement assets will be at risk from this type of confiscation effort regardless of whether the Democrats or Republicans are in control.

How To Protect Your Retirement Benefits & Security

"When plunder has become a way of life for a group of people living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it, and a moral code that glorifies it."

 Frédéric Bastiat

First of all, the final forced takeover of existing retirement plans will be Washington's response to a crisis; a crisis, I fear, welcomed by a majority of the American public. It will be legal, authorized and sold to the public by the media and experts. The reality of the action will slowly filter into the American consciousness over time but those of you who protected your assets and actually financially benefit from the collapse of the dollar will not win any popularity contests. Remember: misery loves company. And you would do well to live with frugality and a low profile as there will be millions of angry, destitute Americans. The Washington politicians will blame everyone but themselves, including foreign nations, freedom loving Americans, and those not stupid enough to believe all the BS out of Washington and Wall Street.

"It is very easy to awaken resentment against people who not only have money, but also the boldness to send that money abroad…in order to protect it against all manner of domestic insecurity." ~ Wilhelm Röpke

Strategies To Protect Your Retirement Benefits

Retirement plan assets and IRA accounts have a substantial amount of protection from lawsuits. But they are sitting ducks for confiscation and Washington controls. Uncertain times call for certain measures. Note, if you have less than $200,000 in qualified plans, do not follow these termination strategies as you should be OK. Most of the attacks will be targeted toward individuals with higher retirement plan balances.

Still, you should consider the offshore diversification and global investment strategies to protect your personal and retirement benefits from the coming dollar collapse. This way, you will benefit from what may be the investment profit opportunity of a lifetime by being in investments which should appreciate when the dollar falls.

Below Are Some Retirement Plan Protection Strategies For Your Review:

Simply Be Aware of the Risks

Remember, the vast majority of Americans will never wake up to the government threat on their retirement benefits. This will work to your advantage as the politicians will work to generate the maximum amount of retirement funds and revenue in the shortest time and with the minimum amount of effort using the current bureaucracy. These following strategies will allow you to legally avoid and side-step future regulations that they will try in order to freeze your retirement plans, control your liquidity options and force your investments into the mandatory GRA, government bond obligations and other preferred government investments.

The Swiss Annuity — An Excellent Foreign Investment Strategy For Liquidity & Security

Fixed and managed variable annuities are available. A Swiss annuity can be purchased and held by a self-directed IRA when you have the proper custodian. This is a simple and uncomplicated way to diversify your IRA into hard currencies like the euro, the Swiss franc, or even precious metals. Also, a Swiss annuity purchased through a retirement plan or IRA can usually be liquidated at any time by instructing the IRA custodian or trustee to mail the contract with liquidation instructions to the appropriate Swiss insurance company.

This type of investment liquidity outside US investment markets, investment management firms, banks and mutual funds should remain free of a stock market or bank closure during a future American financial crisis. We all remember how mutual funds, stocks, bonds and even American annuities were effectively frozen in the days following the 9/11 attacks near Wall Street. Therefore, a Swiss or other foreign annuity should retain its investment liquidity in a real or contrived American financial meltdown, terrorist attack or economic crisis.

Swiss annuities are an excellent investment alternative to diversify your IRA or corporate plan outside the dollar and US financial markets. If you have an IRA, you simply decide on the Swiss annuity contract provider and choose among several US self-directed IRA custodians which allow you to direct all or a portion of your IRA funds into a Swiss annuity contract. Then you transfer your existing IRA account and funds to the new custodian and direct them how to invest your funds. Note, do not request or accept the funds personally as this would be construed as a plan distribution, incurring the taxes and penalties associated with a distribution.

The self-directed IRA becomes both the owner (for your benefit) and beneficiary of the annuity contract while you are the person insured. If something should happen to you, the annuity contract will cash out and the funds will go directly to your IRA; the beneficiary payment will follow your instructions provided in the IRA beneficiary forms.

It is also important to remember that with a self-directed IRA, it is your responsibility to review and decide on your investment options, hence the name, "self-directed IRA." Therefore, you should review any proposed investment materials to make sure the IRA investment is appropriate for your personal, tax and family situation under current IRS regulations. You'll also want to make sure that it meets the investment criteria for your world economic, dollar and political views of the future.

Swiss annuities and other legal IRA offshore investments are usually purchased by American investors concerned about the long-term downtrend in the dollar, future Federal Reserve and Washington actions that might further destroy their wealth, retirement security and future ability to diversify retirement funds internationally to escape a political or economic crisis.

Invest Your IRA & Retirement Plan Outside the Dollar At Home In the United States

Although I believe the seriousness of the threat to retirement plans makes it imperative to either move your retirement assets outside the dollar and the US markets, or consider taking a distribution, there is another alternative to consider in addition to plan termination and withdrawal for retirement investors with less than $200,000 in retirement plans.

Some American banks like EverBank offer foreign currency CD's, and there are advisors and some mutual fund options available for investors who are far more worried about a future dollar collapse than outright confiscation and government control of your retirement assets.

Build Real Retirement Security Offshore With A Private, Non-Qualified Retirement Program

Every dollar you continue to keep inside the United States in qualified retirement plans and, to a lesser extent, IRA accounts, is at risk of being held hostage to the coming mandatory GRA plan. Washington will attempt to force you to transfer into the GRA by the loss of tax deductions, tax-deferred accumulation and likely additional distribution penalties and investment controls.

If you have over $200,000 in retirement funds, you can expect future controls, wealth taxes and probable excess distribution penalties in addition to current regulations. The best way to reduce the risks of the coming retirement threat is to take your funds out of these qualified plan programs which will soon be under revenue and political attack.

Another solution in addition to termination and taking a distribution is to transfer your distribution after paying taxes and penalties offshore, creating a personal non-qualified account offshore in the jurisdiction of your choice. Remember, after a plan distribution or simply adding a monthly investment to your offshore funds is perfectly legal as long as you meet the reporting and tax requirements.

More and more, Americans want a government jurisdiction where the regulatory environment and legal system protects productive, successful individuals, rather than a system which views them as targets to be plundered and attacked for their personal success. Since this is the environment in the U.S. today, many freedom-loving Americans are following the old adage that if you can't change your government, then at least change the government jurisdiction where you keep most of your wealth.

Building your future retirement nest egg outside the U.S. certainly doesn't guarantee you investment profits or success, but it does vastly reduce the likelihood of future government investment controls, exchange controls or the forced investment of your retirement funds into government sponsored or mandated investments. As long as the solicitation rules are followed along with reporting and tax requirements, you are free to invest in approved gold bullion (no collectibles), annuities, real estate and equity and fixed income investments in non-dollar-denominated currencies like the euro and Swiss franc.

Consider Ending Contributions to Your Self-Trusteed Retirement Plans and IRA's

 

Don't place more of your private or corporate wealth at risk by making additional corporate or personal contributions to an IRA or qualified profit-sharing, defined-benefit, money-purchase or 401(k) plan. After all, when the GRA becomes mandatory, the proposal is for 5% of your salary to be forced into the government Guaranteed Retirement Annuity or Account. So why continue your existing plan?

For Participants In Qualified Retirement Plans

If you are only a participant in a qualified plan and you aren't a plan sponsor or in top management, reduce any required contributions to the minimum necessary to receive the maximum employer matching contributions. This advice is especially appropriate for employees covered under the popular 401(k) plans.

Stop All Voluntary Contributions To Existing Plans

For every type of qualified plan, immediately stop all voluntary contributions, both before and after tax. Here, voluntary contributions transfer private personal funds, into qualified plan funds, which are usually subject to increased restrictions on contributions, investments and distributions. Keep your personal wealth out of qualified plans with their soon-to-be increased limitations, taxes and penalties. The current tax benefits, such as tax-deferred growth and sometimes a deduction for the contribution, will soon be lost. There is no compensation for investors in exchange for the ultimate loss of ownership and investment control.

For Qualified Plan Sponsors — Start Terminating Your Plan While You Still Can!

Washington does not want you to terminate your retirement plan now before the GRA is in place. They will need a real or contrived crisis combined with the extra distribution penalties and the loss of tax-deferred growth to make it necessary for most retirement plans and participants to transfer their funds into the proposed Guaranteed Retirement Annuity program. My advice is, depending on your business or personal circumstances, to terminate before the government makes this option prohibitive.

It is important to meet with your accountant or pension advisor and begin the process of requesting IRS approval for the termination of your plan and the distribution of the benefits to the plan participants. Many plan sponsors find it is very difficult to terminate primarily because the plan investment advisors and CPA's or tax advisors make money from the ongoing continuation of the plan. They find going against the recommendation of these experts is far more difficult than dealing with the required government forms and regulations.

Check with the IRS on how long it takes in your IRS district to receive IRS approval for a plan termination. When more plan sponsors wake up to the pension threat, America will see an avalanche of plan terminations, causing long delays in the IRS processing of termination requests. This is when the politicians and regulators will move to "temporarily" freeze plan terminations. Then rest assured, the temporary freeze will become permanent; you and your retirement assets will be trapped.

If you wait until the rush of plan terminations is covered on the nightly news, CNBC or conventional establishment news websites, you will have waited too long. Your plan assets and benefits will become trapped and forced into the coming mandatory system. The only retirement benefits you'll receive will be the standard annual benefits they allow you to withdraw monthly without penalty or excessive tax rates.

Begin Now To Reduce Your Wealth In Retirement Plans To the Minimum Possible Level

In future years, as a plan sponsor or participant with a fund in excess of $200,000, your goal should always be to have the minimum funds possible in any type of government-approved qualified retirement plan or IRA, since every dollar is at a future risk of forced transfer into a future GRA-type mandatory retirement program. Although there is no way you or your employer can escape the coming mandatory program entirely if you have qualified retirement funds, it's prudent to at least keep your exposure and risk to a minimum.

This is why I suggest terminating your plan and reducing or ending your contributions as an early step in protecting your retirement wealth and benefits. There is no way of knowing in advance the political timetable of this retirement trap; therefore, predicting the plan termination panic and when the government will close the door on your retirement funds is also impossible. Remember, a financial crisis from the future treasury debt and dollar crisis could be sparked by actions from foreign holders of treasury obligations ranging from China, to Japan, to the oil-producing countries.

If Terminating Your Plan — Do You Take the Distributions Now and Pay the Existing Taxes and Penalties?

If you are over 59½ — remember, I believe one of the first moves in the attack will be to delay the early retirement age to maybe age 64 — and your tax bracket is low, then meet with your tax advisor. Ask about whether you should pay the taxes and get your funds out from under the current and future confiscatory qualified retirement plan regulations.

For participants in their 30's to 50's with more than the $200,000 threat level in qualified plan assets, I would also suggest that you "bite the bullet" — including the early distribution penalties — and take the funds out now, while you still have the opportunity. The costs of getting out from under the existing government plan system will only increase as time goes by. Penalties, controls and taxes will never be reduced, only increased, and Congress will make sure there is no way any productive, working American can escape the annual forced contribution as a percentage of your salary into the new GRA accounts. The GRA system will be just another black hole on your paycheck each month, just like Social Security. They get your money and you get a promise which they will consistently over time change to their advantage and your detriment.

If Terminating Your Plan — Do You Defer Taxes and Transfer the Funds To An Offshore Self-Directed IRA?

If you expect your income to drop or you require a number of years to withdraw the funds, placing your qualified plan funds into a self-directed IRA can be an excellent decision for a number of reasons. First, the mandatory plan will not be passed for at least a couple of years, and it will be some time later with a new crisis that Washington moves to force all plans into the GRA.

When the passage of the GRA (or whatever they call it) legislation is imminent, that will be the time to immediately close out your IRA account and take the distribution, regardless of taxes and penalties. This may well be the "last train out" for your accumulated retirement benefits. But remember, with an IRA investment like a Swiss annuity, your funds will still be liquid even if a crisis closes the US markets and the banks and you can reinvest the proceeds after paying any taxes and penalties personally or take a distribution in kind to take the distribution, thus remaining in a hard currency like the Swiss franc or euro.

For Existing Large IRA Rollovers

If you are age 59½ and already in an IRA rollover with a substantial balance, then I would begin to withdraw the funds now, with a goal of having at least 50% of the funds out and privately held within the next five years. Remember to discuss all of this with your CPA or tax advisor.

If You Must Keep Your Qualified Retirement Plan, Make Sure You Are the Trustee

If you have only a small number of employees and must continue your qualified plan, either for tax reasons or employee morale, a self-trusteed plan is far superior to one with an outside trustee and custodian. Most importantly, a properly drafted plan will give you, the trustee, the right to be custodian of the plan assets. While this is not an important benefit for mutual fund or investment security accounts, as here for convenience an independent custodian should maintain custody of any liquid or trading investments, there is a significant benefit for having personal custody of other plan investments.

In a crisis situation, having stock certificates in certificate form might provide some additional liquidity if some investment firms and outside custodians become insolvent. Also, both domestic and foreign annuity certificates should be held by you as the trustee and custodian for security purposes.

Remember, in the event of a closure or "government mandated emergency" in the securities markets, on the NASD, and NYSE, all American equity mutual funds and variable annuity portfolios can be frozen for the duration of the crisis. This just might be the time you require liquidity and cash most of all. With foreign annuities, a Swiss annuity or an offshore private annuity outside of American markets, these contracts can be mailed overnight to the respective insurance companies for liquidation or a distribution in kind. This is a taxable event but it can provide you a way to take a legal distribution out of retirement plans in a crisis situation when 99% of American investors are frozen inside a closed US investment market environment with assets waiting to be plucked by Washington.

Prevent Government Control of Your Retirement Investments or Forced Liquidation With A Swiss Annuity For Life Without Refund Option

Whether you have a self-directed IRA or a self-trusteed retirement plan, you can purchase a Swiss annuity policy for life, only with refund, or surrender value. In the event of a future financial crisis, Washington might attempt to force your existing retirement funds into the new GRA or to invest a portion of your non-GRA retirement fund in certain government-preferred investments like treasury obligations. This life annuity without refund option cannot be changed, nor can the contract be liquidated. This is a unique situation where restricted investment liquidity might work in your favor. You should discuss this option with a Swiss annuity expert.

Consider A "Distribution In Kind" With an Offshore Annuity Retirement Investment For Ultimate Liquidity

If there is a world-wide crisis and all investment markets close temporarily, you may or may not be able to liquidate your domestic or foreign annuity. In either case, your foreign annuity contract would be far safer from government confiscation attacks than one purchased in the USA.

In this "worst case scenario," foreign annuities could still be withdrawn from qualified retirement plans and IRA accounts by the participant taking a "distribution in kind" of the contract. This is where the contract is re-registered in the name of the plan participant instead of the plan by written instructions, sending the contract back to the insurance company for re-registration of the ownership. Take note that in this case, the beneficiary would also change from the retirement plan to your preferred beneficiary. This is also a taxable event and whatever distribution penalty and taxes due on the withdrawal would be due at that time.

A "distribution in kind" has been utilized for many years in American plans where the participant prefers the distribution of the actual investment, rather than a distribution by check. For example, American IRA investors might prefer to withdraw their Amazon.com stock in shares rather than liquidating the stock. This is a "distribution in kind."

 

Delay Could Be Fatal!

 

The bottom line on all the strategies I've discussed above is they must be started and in place before the next major economic crisis and threat to your retirement assets occurs. If you, at the very minimum, do not have your offshore retirement program created and partially funded before the crisis and nationalization takes place, none of your remaining wealth in the United States may likely be expatriated outside the U.S.

In a crisis, the government will be forced to control the flow of funds offshore by private individuals and this prohibition will be total, except for politically-favored individuals and large multi-national businesses which will be exempted from the financial iron curtain descending around our borders. Exchange controls — a prohibition on wiring funds offshore, checks, the movement and ownership of cash and precious metals — will be curtailed. Presidential Executive Orders will destroy the last vestiges of civil liberties and the Constitution and Bill of Rights, formerly hanging by a thread, will be curtailed for the duration of the crisis. The door will slam shut!

"If you do not say a thing in an irritating way, you may as well not say it at all, because people will not trouble themselves about anything that does not trouble them."

Mandatory IRAs May Burden Small Employers

December 22nd, 2010 by

January 25, 2010

By Margaret Collins and Alexis Leondis

Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) — U.S. President Barack Obama’s effort to increase retirement savings by requiring all businesses to offer automatic IRA accounts may face opposition from small companies, says a Washington-based trade group.

Obama said the plan, part of a tax package aimed at middle- income Americans proposed today, would let employees automatically enroll in direct-deposit retirement accounts and expand matching tax credits. The administration hasn’t released a cost estimate.

“When small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, we oppose mandates such as this that stand to create a new administrative burden,” said Molly Brogan, vice president of public affairs for the National Small Business Association, in an e-mailed statement.

Sixty-four percent of small-business owners said revenue declined in the past 12 months, the highest percentage since 1993, according to a December national survey of 450 small- business owners conducted by the NSBA, which represents more than 150,000 small businesses. “I don’t know that there’s been enough thought to how certain small businesses, restaurants in particular, would comply with this if they don’t use a payroll company or participate in direct deposits,” said Brogan.

Almost 80 million Americans don’t have retirement accounts through their employers, according to the government. About 63 percent of low-income workers may have no savings at retirement to supplement Social Security, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office.

 

Fill the Gap

 

“The automatic IRA has the advantage of being able to fill in the gap,” said David C. John, who developed an automatic-IRA proposal with Mark Iwry, now deputy assistant treasury secretary for the Retirement Security Project, a joint venture of Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute and the Brookings Institution in Washington.

A worker automatically enrolling in a retirement savings account would likely make contributions through payroll deductions into one of several investments including a stable- value fund, a special-issued U.S. savings bond, and a target- date fund that automatically shifts investments from more aggressive assets to more conservative ones closer to retirement, John said.

The accounts would likely be Roth IRAs where taxes are paid upfront to lower the budgetary cost rather than taxing withdrawals during retirement. Employees would be able to opt- out of the savings program, John said.

 

Investment Limit

 

The automatic IRA may have the same annual investment limit as existing IRAs, which is $5,000 for savers under the age of 50 and $6,000 for savers 50 and over, John said. An employer would have access to a Web site created by the government that would help them find a bank, brokerage firm or mutual fund company to administer the accounts. A freelancer or contract employee would also have the opportunity to participate, he said.

The administration also proposed today expanding a tax credit, known as the “saver’s credit,” to match 50 percent of the first $1,000 of contributions by families earning as much as $65,000 and provide a partial credit to families earning up to $85,000. The tax credit would be refundable so that families would receive it even if they had no tax liabilities.

Senator Jeff Bingaman, a New Mexico Democrat, and Representative Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, previously introduced bills to establish automatic enrollment in IRAs. Bingaman is working on a new version of the bill, said spokeswoman Jude McCartin.

“We expect that a final bill will be ready for introduction in the coming weeks, and the goal will be to get it enacted before the end of the year,” McCartin said.

I Will Not Participate In the Journalism of Appeasement

 I Will Not Participate In the Journalism of Appeasement

By David DeGraw, AmpedStatus

http://ampedstatus.com/i-will-not-participate-in-the-journalism-of-appeasement

 

Here’s a brief summation of my recent reporting:

If we continue to let our politicians and wealthy members of society live in comfort, free from the consequences of their actions, we are complicit in our own demise.

Our country is so overrun with corruption, we cannot remain passive and expect things to get any better.

The economy is propped up by smoke and mirrors and will inevitably collapse. Without immediately breaking up the banks and holding the thieves accountable, we will continue on our downward spiral with increasingly severe and devastating consequences.

These are extremely unpleasant truths that we are now forced to confront. We have to act now. If you are not calling for revolution or organizing, you are either unaware of what’s happening around you, horribly naïve or a fascist sympathizer.

In response to statements like those above, I’ve been exchanging emails with colleagues (journalists and news editors) who have become “uncomfortable” with my reporting style and been saying some variation of the following: “You’re being too radical. This is too extreme for us to publish.”

While I appreciate their opinions, I want to make something 100% clear. I am fully aware that these words are harsh, and may turn off some people. However, in extreme times, telling the truth will make you sound extreme. Ultimately, I don’t mind if you think I sound “too extreme,” I don’t care if I make people “uncomfortable,” or if, in your opinion, I’ve become “too radical.” Try telling that to the 52 million Americans who are now living in poverty. Tell that to the millions of American families who have lost their homes and jobs. Tell that to the 59 million people who can’t afford health insurance. Tell that to the overwhelming majority of the population who are stressed out, living paycheck to paycheck, buried in debt they will never get out of and desperately struggling to make ends meet.

Try telling that to all the people who have emailed me explaining their dire situations due to this economic crisis. Tell that to all the people I personally know who have taken major pay cuts.

I will not participate in the journalism of appeasement.

What has to happen for you to stop being a status quo supporting naïve journalist and realize that we are in the middle of a war? More accurately, it is a slaughter. An all-time record-breaking slaughter.

I refuse to “normalize the unthinkable.”

Here’s a list of stats that I am sure you are already extremely sick of hearing, what we have already passively accepted as “the new normal,” some new ALL-TIME RECORDS for you:

  3 million families foreclosed upon ;

  30 million people in need of employment;

  43 million people on food stamps;

  52 million people in poverty;

  59 million people without healthcare;

  239 million living paycheck to paycheck;

  $144 billion in Wall Street bonuses;

  $13 Trillion in investible wealth within 1% of US population.

Ask yourself this question: How sick and depraved of a society do you have to live in to get a outcome like this?

We now have the highest and most severe inequality of wealth in the history of the United States. We have witnessed an economic shock and awe campaign, acts of financial terrorism have improvised tens of millions of people and put our future prospects in an urgently dire situation. We know who is responsible for it, yet nothing is done to hold them accountable, and most astounding of all, the people responsible for this (a financial terrorism network) are still in power!

This is the largest criminal racket in world history. We need prosecutions under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, right now!

Another important point in response to emails that I get: when I write that Obama is a puppet, some people still get upset with me. Are you kidding me? What kind of president allows this to happen without holding people accountable? What kind of president allows our tax dollars to be taken and handed out as all-time record-breaking bonuses while we have an all-time record-breaking number of people living in poverty? What kind of president puts career-long preeminent economic imperialists Tim Geithner and Larry Summers in charge of our economy, and supports Ben Bernanke’s reconfirmation as Fed Chairman? This is all absurd and inexcusable! These three people would be in prison if we lived in a nation ruled by law. Obama is a bullshit artist – Period, Full Stop.

This is a quintessential banana republic ruled by a puppet president. If that truth is too much for you to handle, stop reading this right now and go retreat into your “reality TV” world while you still can.

Let me defer to Senator Bernie Sanders. He recently said what I’ve been screaming about and gave us one of those very rare moments when truth was actually spoken on the Senate floor:

“There is a war going on in this county and I’m not referring to the war in Iraq or the war in Afghanistan. I’m talking about a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America, against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of our country.

The reality is that many of the nation’s billionaires are on the war path. They want more, more, more. Their greed has no end, and apparently there is very little concern for our country or for the people of this country if it gets in the way of the accumulation of more and more wealth, and more and more power….

Today… the crooks on Wall Street… the people whose actions, illegal actions, reckless actions, have resulted in millions of Americans losing their jobs, their homes, their savings… After we bailed them out, the CEOs today are now earning more money than they did before the bailout…. While the middle class of this country collapses and the rich become much richer… the United States now has, by far, the most unequal distribution of income and wealth of any major country on earth.

When we were in school, we used to read the text books which talked about the banana republics in Latin America… about countries in which a handful of people owned and controlled most of the wealth in those countries. Well, guess what? That is exactly what is happening in the United States today.”

What will it take to make you understand this? Don’t you get it? This is a war! This is a mass slaughter carried out by economic policy. This is the elimination of the existence of a middle class. These are financial terrorists committing crimes against humanity. Our country is being attacked! My family is under attack! My child is under attack! I am under attack!

We are under attack!

I know that TV news propaganda confuses people, but on a basic and profound level, whether people want to admit it or not, the overwhelming majority of the population knows that our nation has been taken over by a global banking cartel. We know that our future has gone up in flames. We know that both political parties have been paid off and don’t represent us. If the politicians don’t drastically change course and start representing the people, we have a duty, a Constitutional commitment and obligation to launch a revolution.

If you are not calling for revolution or organizing, you are either unaware of what’s happening around you, horribly naïve or a fascist sympathizer. If we continue to let our politicians and wealthy members of society live in comfort, free from the consequences of their actions, we are complicit in our own demise.

Our country is so overrun with corruption, we cannot remain passive and expect things to get any better. The economy is now propped up by smoke and mirrors and will inevitably collapse. Without immediately breaking up the banks and holding the thieves accountable, we will continue on our downward spiral with increasingly severe and devastating consequences. These are extremely unpleasant truths that we are now forced to confront. We have to act now.

People who still delude themselves into apathy by clinging to the belief that giving trillions of dollars to the banks had to be done, are buying into a baseless propaganda line. Use your commonsense. What kind of fool would think that the best way to solve the economic crisis would be to give trillions of dollars to the people who are most responsible for causing it. That is absurd! Instead of holding them accountable for the crimes they committed, they were given trillions in taxpayer funds which they used to further consolidate power and give themselves all-time record-breaking bonuses – and they deliberately impoverished tens of millions of people in the process. People are either confused as to what happened or they are in denial and afraid to confront the colossal crime committed. Whatever the case may be, there is no escaping the consequences. The implications are staggering. If you think it’s been bad over the past two years, get ready, you haven’t seen anything yet.

So are we going to start fighting back, or should I just move my family to another country? Most everyone who understands our economic and political situation are having this debate now and contemplating moving outside the country. Is that what we should do? Should we just leave the country and let it collapse?

Those who are aware have reached the point where our survival instinct is kicking in. Fight or flight?

I’m ready to fight, but I’m not ready to fight a losing battle. We all need to do what is best for our family.

Are you with me? Or should I start packing now?

David DeGraw is without doubt the most explicit writer in the patriot community, and the bravest of all men I have seen in this battle.

I am not fit to wear his shoes, but I will go one step further with this comment, if you are not willing to fight long side of us to save this country, you are no better than the people we are fighting.

Anyone with shit for brains would know that’s a threat!

Passing his articles on to all you know is the least you can do for our freedom, our families, and our country.

December 20th, 2010 by

DEDICATION:

 

Flight of the Black Swan: by Marilyn Macgruder Barnewall,is an offering to the American People. It is intended as a flashlight to help identify truth – a looking glass that reflects reality.

In his 2007 best-selling work of non-fiction, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, Nicholas Taleb defines Black Swans as unexpected or rare events and discusses ways they can be used to create financial havoc. Because my first book in this series was about a white swan, I decided – before hearing of Taleb’s book – to use the words “Black Swan” in this title. God moves in strange ways and Taleb’s book was published, and became a best-seller in the non-fiction category which, from my perspective, was a most interesting, “unexpected event.”

I hope when people read Flight of the Black Swan it will turn on a flashlight and help them look in all of the dark corners. That’s where the evil dwells that has been busily destroying their nation. Shining a light on them will help free all people from the carefully crafted spiders’ webs of deception.

God bless the United States of America and the people who make her great. May your apathy fall by the wayside and may you be infected with a newfound virus that compels you to make sure people in positions of power live by the Constitution, stop treating people like corporate assets, and seek the truth. People have lived with lies for such a long time, flipping on a light switch will be difficult.

Flight of the Black Swanis a story about fictional characters. Some know that looking glass images may appear to be exact duplicates of reality, but are distorted. Others have yet to observe that lesson. Thanks go to the brave men and women in our intelligence services who fight the good fight on behalf of a nation that doesn’t seem aware anyone has put on gloves and stepped into the ring. As for the men and women in those same intelligence services who think the fight is over and darkness has won, check the mirror again.

The light has changed; a new shadow emerges…

OLDDOG’S COMMENT

I have been told that the one of the greatest gifts one receives from being an activist is the quality of friends they make in the effort to protect truth and justice. Surely I was being blessed, when I made an unintentional remark that lit this lady’s fuse, and out of the hundreds of following letters I was graced with her friendship. Few people have impressed me as she, and there are fewer that I trust like I do her. You will find her among the great women in America who have contributed to the preservation of freedom, truth, justice, and sanity, with the most lethal weapons ever invented: a keyboard, and an extraordinary intellect.

Get well soon my dear friend, America still needs you.

Army National Guard Recruitment

Now go HERE, read about  Operation Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, and connect the dots. Here is an excerpt:

If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters.

Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.

This plan could be implemented under any of the following situations:

(1) Spontaneous civil disturbances which involve large numbers of persons and/or which continue for a considerable period of time, may exceed the capacity of local civil law enforcement agencies to suppress. Although this type of activity can arise without warning as a result of sudden, unanticipated popular unrest (past riots), it may also result from more prolonged dissidence.

This would most likely be an outgrowth of serious social, political or economic issues which divide segments of the American population. Such factionalism could manifest itself through repeated demonstrations, protest marches and other forms of legitimate opposition but which would have the potential for erupting into spontaneous violence with little or no warning.

If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place,

under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters. Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.Under section D, a Presidential Executive Order will authorize and direct the Secretary of Defense to use the Armed Forces of the United States to restore order.

2 TAB A APPENDIX 1 TO ANNEX S USAF CIVIL DISTURBANCE PLAN 55-2 EXHIBIT POR:SGH, JCS Pub 6, Vol 5, AFR 160-5 hereby provides for America’s military and the National Guard State Partnership Program to join with United Nations personal in said operations. This links selected U.S. National Guard units with the Defense Ministries of “Partnership For Peace.” This was done in an effort to provide military support to civil authorities in response to civil emergencies.

Under Presidential Decision Directive No. 25, this program serves to cement people to relationships between the citizens of the United States, and the global military of the UN establishments of the emerging democracies of Central and Eastern European countries. This puts all of our National Guardsmen under the direct jurisdiction of the United Nations.

This would most likely be an outgrowth of serious social, political or economic issues which divide segments of the American population. Such factionalism could manifest itself through repeated demonstrations, protest marches and other forms of legitimate opposition but which would have the potential for erupting into spontaneous violence with little or no warning.

(2) Planned acts of violence or civil disobedience which, through arising from the same causes as (1) above, are seized upon by a dedicated group of dissidents who plan and incite purposeful acts designed to disrupt social order.

This may occur either because leaders of protest organizations intentionally induce their followers to perpetrate violent acts, or because a group of militants infiltrates an otherwise peaceful protest and seeks to divert it from its peaceful course.

1. GENERAL Opposition forces or groups may attempt to gain knowledge of this plan and ‘use that knowledge to prevent or degrade the effectiveness of the actions outlined in this plan. In order to protect operations undertaken to accomplish the mission, it is necessary to control sources of information that can be exploited by those opposition forces or groups.

 

OPSEC is the effort to protect operations by identifying and controlling intelligence indicators susceptible to exploitation. The objective of OPSEC, in the execution of this plan, is to assure the security of operations, mission effectiveness, and increase the probability of mission success. 2. RESPONSIBILITY FOR OPERATIONS SECURITY (OPSEC):

The denial of information to an enemy is inherently a command responsibility.

However, since the operations Officer at any level of command is responsible to his commander for the Overall planning and execution of operations, he has the principal staff interest in assuring maximum protection of the operation and must assume primary responsibility instibility for ensuring that the efforts of all other staff elements are coordinated toward this

end. However, every other individual associated with, or aware of, the operation must assist in safeguarding the security of the operation.

3. OBJECTIVES:

a. The basic objective of OPSEC is to preserve the security of friendly forces and thereby to enhance the probability of successful mission accomplishment. “Security” in this context relates to the protection of friendly forces. It also includes the protection of operational information to prevent degradation of mission effectiveness through the disclosure of prior knowledge of friendly operations to the opposition.

b. OPSEC pervades the entire planning process and must be a matter of continuing concern from the conception of an operation, throughout the preparatory and execution phases, and during critiques, reports, press releases, and the like conducted during the post operation phase.

4. Specific operations orders and standard operating procedures “MUST be developed with the awareness that the opposition may be able to identify and exploit vulnerable activities.

A short history

Operation Garden Plot
JTF-LA Joint Task Force Los Angeles

Garden Plot is the generic Operations Plan [OPLAN] for military support related to domestic civil disturbances.

The euphoria over the August 6, 1965, signing of the Voting Rights Act subsided a week later when the Watts section of Los Angeles exploded in the Nation’s worst race riot since 1943. It lasted 6 days and left 35 dead, 900 injured, over 3,500 arrested and $46 million of property damage. The Watts riot demonstrated the depth of the urban race problems in the North.

Over a week of rioting was triggered in the Watts district of Los Angeles by the arrest of a black motorist in the area, leaving 34 people dead and over 1,000 injured. Nearly 3,800 people were arrested, and property damages were put at $40 million. An official report criticized by black leaders placed some of the blame for the riots on the growing civil rights movement. Two more people were killed when disturbances flared again in Watts in early 1966.

Although the Watts riots of 1965 was a pivotal point for the Army as a whole, only California National Guard troops were utilized in quelling the unrest in Watts. The employment of federal troops during the Detroit riots of 1967 was the transitional point for the Army.

Demographic changes have caused significant stratification of Los Angeles by neighborhood. The areas of South and Central Los Angeles, overwhelmingly populated by African Americans and Hispanics, have experienced despairingly high unemployment-20 to 40 percent of the residents live below the poverty level. By contrast, several of the communities on the west side remain fairly homogeneous white neighborhoods with minimal levels of poverty. These circumstances have contributed to strong economic and social tensions, the most notable being the conflict in South Central between African Americans and Korean Americans. The two groups have lived alongside one another for the past decade but have experienced dramatically different economic changes.

By 1992 Los Angeles was in the midst of a spiraling economic downturn. Although the strain of the deepening recession had been hard on the entire city, it was especially severe on the African-American community. The disproportionately high levels of unemployment and poverty in the African-American neighborhoods were, by most accounts, giving rise to growing levels of tension, frustration, and anger that contributed to a tense atmosphere.

African Americans, especially young males, felt they were frequently the victims of police mistreatment, racism, and abuse, a feeling also shared by leaders of the Hispanic communities, Korean Americans held a similar view and believed that they did not receive adequate protection from the LAPD. In general, there was a widespread perception within the minority communities that the police gave priority to protecting affluent white neighborhoods over minority communities such as South Central, the Pica-Union area, and Koreatown

On the afternoon of 29 April 1992, the worst civil unrest since the riots of the 1960′s erupted in the streets of Los Angeles (LA). The civil unrest in Los Angeles followed a California jury’s acquittal of the Los Angeles policemen accused of using excessive force in the beating of Rodney King. The case had received heavy media coverage dating from before it even went to trial, when a video of the beating hit the national airwaves. It came as a surprise then, as the verdicts were read: One of the officers was found guilty of excessive force; the other officers were cleared of all charges. The verdicts were broadcast live, and word spread quickly throughout Los Angeles. At various points throughout the city that afternoon, people began rioting. Riots erupted on the streets of south central Los Angeles and soon expanded to disrupt and threaten lives and property in much of the city and county of Los Angeles.

In South Central Los Angeles, crowds began to congregate almost immediately to protest the verdicts. The street corner protests began to grow in number and size-first angry and then violent – a situation dramatized by the beating of a white truck driver four hours after the verdicts were announced. During the next six days, the reaction escalated into a terrifying reign of violence, widespread looting, and mass destruction of property in many communities across the city. The swiftness and ferocity of these events stunned the entire city and nation.

The first incident, which occurred within an hour after the verdicts were announced, took place in the Hyde Park neighborhood of the 77th Street Police District. The intersection of Florence and Normandie, considered one of the “flash points,” was the scene of repeated violent activity beginning before 4:00 p.m. The events there were covered by live television and reached their peak at approximately 6:45 p.m., when several young African-American males dragged Reginald Denny, a passing motorist, from his truck and beat him close to death. The violence and lawlessness escalated and spread to the north and west.

By 6:30 p.m., a crowd had gathered outside Parker Center, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) headquarters, which had been stormed and vandalized within the hour. This incident gripped the attention of police commanders. Firefighters were being attacked-one was shot and hospitalized in the early evening while responding to a call.

The lawlessness involved physical violence, looting, and arson, which resulted in massive destruction of property. According to the City in Crisis, the rioting was cyclical in nature and occurred with equal intensity in daylight hours and during the night, unlike past civil disorders. Disturbances which began in the morning gathered momentum during the day and reached a high point in the evening, declining during the early morning hours. Destruction was most severe on the second day and tapered off only on the fourth and fifth days.

At least forty-four [possibly 58] people died and hundreds [possibly more than 2,000, or even 4,000] were injured before order was restored Property damage reached the billion dollar mark because of rampaging looters and the thousands of fires that they set. It began as a small disturbance in south central LA, but quickly escalated and spread rapidly throughout the city and country. Arsonists set over 4,600 fires that at least partially burned a reported 10,000 businesses. Reports on the number arrested ranged from 12,000 to 17,000. Emergency workers were soon stretched to the limit in their efforts to cope with the crisis. The violence initially overwhelmed law enforcement agencies, resulting in the burning of large areas of the city. The LA riots of 1992 were unquestionably the most costly civil disturbance in US history.

The initial response of many city officials was marked by uncertainty, confusion, and lack of coordination. Within the LAPD, there was no meaningful integration with any other arm of government. The LAPD was uncharacteristically hesitant in responding to initial incidents of disorder – which later would be considered a major factor in their inability to control the unrest.

As the fires spread across Los Angeles beginning in the late afternoon of Apri1 29, 1992, unprecedented demands were placed on the Los Angeles City Fire Department, in particular, because it was forced to respond to calls for assistance while confronted at times by hostile individuals and crowds armed with assorted weapons. The fire fighters were severely hampered by the response time and level of escort support which the Los Angeles Police Department was able to muster.

Both the state and federal governments responded quickly to the crisis. The governor of California committed the state police and two thousand National Guard soldiers to assist in restoring law and order on 30 April. At 2230 on 29 April 1992, as part of the response to this disorder, the 3d Battalion, 160th Infantry (Mechanized), 40th Infantry Division, California National Guard, was ordered to mobilize. CANG’s initial response was slow and somewhat disorganized. Its troops did not arrive in the streets until 17 hours after Wilson’s order or not until the evening of April 30. Between 2100 and 2400 the following day, all 3d Battalion companies deployed to their assigned areas. It was the first tactical battalion to be mobilized, the first to deploy to the streets of LA, and the last to redeploy. By the early morning of 30 April, the Governor of California had ordered state police and about 2,000 guardsmen into the area to restore order. The first of the National Guard units, the 670th Military Police Company, traveled almost 300 miles from its main armory and arrived the same afternoon to assist local police.

Lacking proper warning by LAPD, CANG loaned out to local agencies key items of riot control equipment such as face shields, riot batons and lock plates for their M-16 rifles. Logistics failures included ammunition shortages and transportation and communications snafus. Training was inadequate and predicated on the mistaken belief that the troops would face only a riot and not “low-intensity conflict (or urban warfare)” Training before and during the crisis was based on out of date “crowd control” techniques prescribed in the 1985 Army Field Manual 19-15, Civil Disturbances. Absolutely no one, civilian or military, expected a situation where the National Guard would be needed on the streets in a matter of hours.

The federal response was timely. SecDef Richard Cheney put 4,000 Army and Marine troops on alert on 30 April 1992. President Bush invoked the Insurrection Act via Executive Order 12804 [not Executive Order 6427] of 1 May 1992, federalizing elements of the California National Guard and authorizing active military forces from the Army and Marine Corps to help restore law and order. Following this Presidential Executive Order on 1 May, JTF-LA was formed. The Executive Order federalized unit of the California Army National Guard (CAARNG) and authorized active military forces to assist in the restoration of law and order. JTF-LA formed and deployed within 24 hours. It operated in a unique domestic disturbance environment while working with city, county, state, federal agencies, and the CAARNG. JTF-LA was completely successful in meeting the three objectives defined in its mission statement, which were-assume command and control of federalized National Guard and AC Marine and Army forces, establish liaison with local law enforcement agencies; and conduct civil disturbance operations to restore order in the greater LA area.

As DOD’s executive agent for the crisis, the Secretary of the Army activated a civil disturbance plan, called GARDEN PLOT, to help orchestrate the callup and deployment of the military forces. Joint Task Force Los ANGELES consisted of about 10,000 guardsmen, nearly 1,500 marines from Camp Pendleton, and 2,000 soldiers from the 2d Brigade, 7th Infantry Division (Light), at Fort Ord. Virtually the entire 40th Infantry Division was mobilized. The military personnel were supposed to protect specific areas of the city, patrol neighborhoods after the police had restored order, and protect the fire fighters who were being attacked by mobs. Army troops showed restraint and discipline in handling a touchy situation. During the riots, they worked in areas of the city without electricity, where many buildings had been destroyed by fires, and resolved several potentially dangerous confrontations. The military would also provide some logistical support and supply riot gear, helicopters, tentage, and Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MRE). DOD estimated the final cost of the operation at about $15 million. A full complement of intelligence analysts was required to support the assault command post (ACP) during Operation Garden Plot. Law enforcement agencies generally have adequate data collection capabilities, but lack the ability to perform detailed intelligence analysis. Considerations for the G2 (S2) in an operation such as Garden Plot may include points similar to the following:

In Operation Garden Plot, military forces established intelligence exchange with suburban police departments, local city command post, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the LAPD emergency operations center, the city command center, the sheriffs office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Close and effective liaison must be established with all potential sources and agencies. Local law enforcement agencies have access to HUMINT, often unavailable to the military. The intelligence staff of the law enforcement agencies have unparalleled expertise in civil disturbances and gang behavior, while military analysts are in the best position to apply this experience to civil-military operations. During Operation Garden Plot, units used a variety of government-owned, off-the-shelf purchased, and personally owned equipment to effectively conduct operations. Additional communications equipment included such things as cellular phones, faxsimile machines, and police scanners.

For many days after, it was impossible for people living in South Central and Koreatown to purchase the minimum necessities. The city’s mayor lifted the curfew on 4 May, and troops departed Los Angeles by 6 May.

This is a document for which I can provide no positive proof of authenticity. My own daughter called Me a conspiracy theorist yesterday,so I might as well live up to expectations.

 

CODEWORD: CABLESPLICE

 

(This is a secret document being circulated among Top Government And UN people)

An Aggressive Program to Counter The Disrupters Movement

Recent efforts by The Disrupters Movement to gain political influence are beginning to seriously and adversely affect public perceptions and understanding of ongoing programs aimed at smoothing the transfer of sovereignty and power from national governments to super-national statist organizations unless such efforts are countered and discredited, the task of creating a unified global government under UN control will be far more difficult. The most dangerous element of The Disrupters Movement are those that are part of the Christian Fundamentalist majority. The following memorandum offers a set of policy prescriptions designed to counter-act their, efforts,

ANALYSIS OF PROBLEM

Although there has always been opposition from groups and individuals with a conservative, isolationist attitude, the recent growth of such opposition, and the ability and organizational success of these groups has raised serious concern in recent years. Unless steps are taken to meet the challenge posed by The Disrupters Movement, it is possible that these groups could make serious inroads into the public complacence which has been so carefully nurtured over the past fifty Years, The threat is two-fold. First, there is the traditional conservative political threat, one which can be traced back to pre-W.W.II isolationism and political conservatism. These groups are not of particular concern as their organizing ability and numbers do not suggest the capability for amassing significant political power. It is the second category, the “Christian Fundamentalists,” that pose the greatest threat. These people are representative of a massive population of Americans and if allowed to propagandize and organize that base could present serious obstacles to further progress,

I. Overt Programs;

Overt programs to counter growing influence of Christian and other groups should take various forms:

A. An active effort aimed at promoting the benefits of global organizations and institutions. Media stories, books, conferences, and other means should be utilized to get the story out in appropriate fashion.

Appearances

B. Appearances by political figures, well-known celebrities and other influential figures at events connected to international and super- national organizations and institutions. Of particular use are events which involve “feel-good” operations such as UNICEF, Feed the Children, Americare, etc.

C. Promotion of peaceful uses of atomic energy, disarmament as a necessary condition to peace and security, and tolerance and acceptance of non-Christian faiths should be promoted consistently but with enough subtlety so as not to turn off the targeted populations.

1. Under no circumstances, however. should such efforts be allowed to raise fears regarding those goals, nor should they provide substantive evidence of the true objectives of U.S.G. policy.

2. An important means of developing support for disarmament and the reliance on the United Nations to impose global order is through raising fears of nuclear weapons. By playing up the danger of nuclear war, It should be possible to generate considerable public support for further movement towards the disarmament of national states. This diverts attention from the real nature of disarmament effort by portraying it as necessary to world peace, rather than a step on the road to world government.

D. A massive attack on The Disrupters Movement, and especially Christian religion groups. This assault would challenge them as intolerant, hateful, exclusionist, and potentially dangerous. Such a program would include the following:

1. Efforts should be made to falsely portray their objectives as the creation of a religious theocracy and the imposition of strict religious interpretation of the Bible as the basis for political participation in “The New Christian America.” This can best be accomplished by focusing on the most outrageous and extremist statements and members, while down playing the more moderate membership.

2. ” Christian ” groups should whenever possible be portrayed as fringe elements of the country’s religious population, not especially numerous and certainly not representative of “most” Christians. 3. At every opportunity these “Christian” groups should be presented as vicious, intolerant, and especially as anti-Semitic. The selective use of quotes, and if necessary, the use of invented statements, can be most effective means of accomplishing this task.

Arrest

4. Arrest either on criminal charges or on mental Inquest warrants certain members of The Disrupters Movement who by their fanatical religious life-styles and/or their EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS would be psychologically and physically prepared to survive outside of the government control.

5. Harassment on criminal charges or mental inquest warrants of those who listen to and/or sympathize with The Disrupters Movement.

II. Covert Programs: Covert programs may be equally as important, if not more so, to countering the increasing effectiveness of The Disrupters Movement.

A. Infiltration of The Disrupters Movement by sympathetic agents is an extremely useful tool in combating their efforts.

1. By carrying out extreme acts, and especially acts of violence, such individuals can bring discredit and public condemnation against The Disruption Movement.

2. By raising confusion , and care fully encouraging splits and controversy within The Disrupters Movement, such agents will be able to reduce the effectiveness and coherency of those groups.

B. Individuals who have been groomed to operate outside the usual channels of political activity should be activated and placed in positions in which they appear to be in opposition to USG policy.

1. These persons would speak out publicly in opposition to our policies, but would be in fact be sympathetic to our long term objectives. By carefully and selectively providing false or misleading information, and information of a seemingly scandalous or dramatic nature, they would seem to be supporting the agenda of The Disrupters Movement. But when the information the promulgated was shown to be patently false, It would further damage the credibility of the opposition.

2. The use of certain talk radio personalities along the lines suggested in paragraph 1 has already proven quite effective and further ventures along these lines could be beneficial.

3. In extreme situations, it may become useful or even necessary for these undercover assets to carry out certain operations against members of The Disrupters Movement who are interfering with CABLESPLICE. In some cases, termination’s with extreme prejudice may be called for.

Subversion

C. Subversion and Elimination of the Second Amendment

1. One of the most critical efforts must be the removal of firearms from individual control. The on-going long-term program to accomplish this is to bear efforts along current lines are advised.

a. The use of “agent provocateurs,” individuals who are seemingly insane (but who are never taken alive) who create highly publicized mass killings with automatic weapons has been particularly useful in molding public opinion. Similarly, the regular use of random killings in large urban areas as a way of creating a climate of fear and violence has resulted in significant gains for the gun-control point of view. Such programs are extremely useful and should be continued and possibly expanded.

b. On-going efforts to gain small footholds in gun-control are worthwhile as they open the door to further controls later on. The importance of eliminating the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms cannot be stressed too much.

III. DISINFORMATION PROGRAMS:

These programs should be designed to carefully seed the media with false and misleading information about long-term goals and plans, as well as forged and deceptive details about The Disrupters Movement.

A. Careful and selective placement of spurious and potentially damaging news stories in the popular media is an excellent means of raising doubts and fears of the population. Our opponents have made good use of this technique, we should do likewise.

B. One of the most effective disinformation programs has been the selected use of “expose” books and stories, all reputedly written by former government and super-government officials, but in fact developed within the NSA and CIA.

1. Connections to actual government operations, and the bona fides of such expose authors are deliberately vague in order to make tracing and verifying their stories difficult.

2. Although the books and information “exposed” would seemingly be extremely critical of our long-term programs and objectives, the contradictions contained within, the difficulty of verifying either authors or details, and the wild-eyed style verging on the Irrational would all work to discredit and raise doubts.

The presentation

3. The presentation of fringe and extremist religious doctrine and beliefs, or the presentation of Christian religious beliefs in particularly dogmatic and intolerant fashion, would help to turn popular opinion against The Disrupter Movement.

IV. Other Propaganda Efforts

A. Print Media/Publications

1. Appropriate use of popular media intended to discredit and attack opponents is a fundamental tool of countering The Disrupters Movement.

2. While control of the major media outlets is crucial to such efforts, it is through “fringe” media publications that the most damage can be done to The Disrupters Movement. Continued use of assets within the counter media can be beneficial.

B. Electronic/Computer Systems: Electronic computer systems, bulletin boards, and information superhighway in general is an area of considerable importance to efforts to combat the activities of The Disrupter Movement. The ability of opponents to utilize computer bulletin boards to pass information and educate people must be met with an active program of disinformation and attack.

1. One means of countering the effectiveness of such opposition efforts is the simple expedient of overloading their bulletin boards. A single operator with one computer can set a program in motion that will send out thousands of messages. The sheer volume of such messages is more then the content. Most people will give up rather then read through hundreds and thousands of messages.

2. A second means of countering the opposition’s use of computer technology is through the careful placing of disinformation agents. Such agents can take two forms:

a. Agents may be placed who will simply argue against the opposition, using delaying and confusing tactics such as constantly demanding references and “proof” of allegations, referring to obscure and difficult to find documents as evidence that the opposition is wrong, and generally forcing the opposition to waste tremendous amounts of time simply defending itself from spurious and irrelevant attacks.

Other

b. Other agents have been placed with a more subtle purpose mind. Such agents would take on the persons WA attitudes of members of The Disrupters Movement, but would present the opposition case in ways that will ultimately discredit them. The necessary effort to correct. the messages posted by these agents, and the resulting appearance of disarray within their camp should present considerable opportunities for further assaults on The Disrupters Movement.

3. In cases of computer networks where it is highly imperative that the efforts of The Disrupters be neutralized, coordinated assaults can be arranged using aliases and multiple membership ID’s to present a wide array of negative and meddlesome messages.

C. Diversionary efforts

1. Bread and Circuses

a. Celebrities: The use of celebrities is a proven means of diverting attention from serious political Issues. Moreover, the use of selected celebrity figures as political spokesperson can be a very effective means of getting our message across.

b. Sports: Sports are useful as a means of diverting attention from serious political issues and dulling the minds of the populace. By focusing all their energies on sporting events, we can prevent people from undertaking the intense and serious study necessary to take effective political action.

c. Gambling: The provision of numerous outlets for public gambling serves multiple purposes; it serves to keep the popular attention engaged on sporting events, as well as what has become known as “lottery fever. ” Perhaps more important, widespread gambling not only keeps the general public poor, it provides needed income for our own uses– especially when allowed in the form of state lotteries which purport to provide money for education, senior citizens, or other popular purposes. In fact, through the careful use of accounting manipulation, much of the funds raised are being diverted to support many of the other programs and efforts described in this memo.

Finally here are the EOs that are the fly in the ointment.

State of National Emergency

The following are a few examples of some EOs and their purposes that relate to a State of national emergency[1]

10995–Federal seizure of all communications media in the United States;

10997–Federal seizure of all electric power, fuels, minerals, public and private;

10998–Federal seizure of all food supplies and resources, public and private and all farms and equipment;

10999–Federal seizure of all means of transportation, including cars, trucks, or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports and water ways;

11000–Federal seizure of American people for work forces under federal supervision, including the splitting up of families if the government so desires;

11001–Federal seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private;

11002–Empowers the Postmaster General to register all men, women and children in the United States of America;

11003–Federal seizure of all airports and aircraft;

11004–Federal seizure of all housing and finances and authority to establish Forced Relocation. Authority to designate areas to be abandoned as “unsafe,” establish new locations for the populations, relocate communities, build new housing with public funds;

11005–Seizure of all railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities, both public and private;

11051–Provides FEMA complete authorization to put above orders into effect in times of increased international tension of economic or financial crisis (FEMA will be in control in case of “National Emergency”).

“President William Jefferson Clinton wrote one EO that can cover all of these. He wroteExecutive Order 12919 on June 3, 1994, which was released on June 6, 1994.

This EO will be the only thing he needs to enact in order to become a fully empowered dictator. It covers all of the EOs mentioned previously. The only thing this EO doesn’t do is define WHAT the “national emergency” would have to be in order for this EO to be signed. Please keep that in mind. Anything can be declared a “national emergency” to facilitate EO 12919 being enacted.” [2]

Now go HERE, read about  Operation Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, and connect the dots. Here is an excerpt:

If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters.

Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.

This plan could be implemented under any of the following situations:

(1) Spontaneous civil disturbances which involve large numbers of persons and/or which continue for a considerable period of time, may exceed the capacity of local civil law enforcement agencies to suppress. Although this type of activity can arise without warning as a result of sudden, unanticipated popular unrest (past riots), it may also result from more prolonged dissidence.

This would most likely be an outgrowth of serious social, political or economic issues which divide segments of the American population. Such factionalism could manifest itself through repeated demonstrations, protest marches and other forms of legitimate opposition but which would have the potential for erupting into spontaneous violence with little or no warning.

1. GENERAL Opposition forces or groups may attempt to gain knowledge of this plan and ‘use that knowledge to prevent or degrade the effectiveness of the actions outlined in this plan. In order to protect operations undertaken to accomplish the mission, it is necessary to control sources of information that can be exploited by those opposition forces or groups.

 

OPSEC is the effort to protect operations by identifying and controlling intelligence indicators susceptible to exploitation. The objective of OPSEC, in the execution of this plan, is to assure the security of operations, mission effectiveness, and increase the probability of mission success. 2. RESPONSIBILITY FOR OPERATIONS SECURITY (OPSEC):

The denial of information to an enemy is inherently a command responsibility.

However, since the operations Officer at any level of command is responsible to his commander for the Overall planning and execution of operations, he has the principal staff interest in assuring maximum protection of the operation and must assume primary responsibility instibility for ensuring that the efforts of all other staff elements are coordinated toward this

end. However, every other individual associated with, or aware of, the operation must assist in safeguarding the security of the operation.

3. OBJECTIVES:

a. The basic objective of OPSEC is to preserve the security of friendly forces and thereby to enhance the probability of successful mission accomplishment. “Security” in this context relates to the protection of friendly forces. It also includes the protection of operational information to prevent degradation of mission effectiveness through the disclosure of prior knowledge of friendly operations to the opposition.

b. OPSEC pervades the entire planning process and must be a matter of continuing concern from the conception of an operation, throughout the preparatory and execution phases, and during critiques, reports, press releases, and the like conducted during the post operation phase.

4. Specific operations orders and standard operating procedures “MUST be developed with the awareness that the opposition may be able to identify and exploit vulnerable activities.

A short history

Operation Garden Plot
JTF-LA Joint Task Force Los Angeles

Garden Plot is the generic Operations Plan [OPLAN] for military support related to domestic civil disturbances.

The euphoria over the August 6, 1965, signing of the Voting Rights Act subsided a week later when the Watts section of Los Angeles exploded in the Nation’s worst race riot since 1943. It lasted 6 days and left 35 dead, 900 injured, over 3,500 arrested and $46 million of property damage. The Watts riot demonstrated the depth of the urban race problems in the North.

Over a week of rioting was triggered in the Watts district of Los Angeles by the arrest of a black motorist in the area, leaving 34 people dead and over 1,000 injured. Nearly 3,800 people were arrested, and property damages were put at $40 million. An official report criticized by black leaders placed some of the blame for the riots on the growing civil rights movement. Two more people were killed when disturbances flared again in Watts in early 1966.

Although the Watts riots of 1965 was a pivotal point for the Army as a whole, only California National Guard troops were utilized in quelling the unrest in Watts. The employment of federal troops during the Detroit riots of 1967 was the transitional point for the Army.

Demographic changes have caused significant stratification of Los Angeles by neighborhood. The areas of South and Central Los Angeles, overwhelmingly populated by African Americans and Hispanics, have experienced despairingly high unemployment-20 to 40 percent of the residents live below the poverty level. By contrast, several of the communities on the west side remain fairly homogeneous white neighborhoods with minimal levels of poverty. These circumstances have contributed to strong economic and social tensions, the most notable being the conflict in South Central between African Americans and Korean Americans. The two groups have lived alongside one another for the past decade but have experienced dramatically different economic changes.

By 1992 Los Angeles was in the midst of a spiraling economic downturn. Although the strain of the deepening recession had been hard on the entire city, it was especially severe on the African-American community. The disproportionately high levels of unemployment and poverty in the African-American neighborhoods were, by most accounts, giving rise to growing levels of tension, frustration, and anger that contributed to a tense atmosphere.

African Americans, especially young males, felt they were frequently the victims of police mistreatment, racism, and abuse, a feeling also shared by leaders of the Hispanic communities, Korean Americans held a similar view and believed that they did not receive adequate protection from the LAPD. In general, there was a widespread perception within the minority communities that the police gave priority to protecting affluent white neighborhoods over minority communities such as South Central, the Pica-Union area, and Koreatown

On the afternoon of 29 April 1992, the worst civil unrest since the riots of the 1960′s erupted in the streets of Los Angeles (LA). The civil unrest in Los Angeles followed a California jury’s acquittal of the Los Angeles policemen accused of using excessive force in the beating of Rodney King. The case had received heavy media coverage dating from before it even went to trial, when a video of the beating hit the national airwaves. It came as a surprise then, as the verdicts were read: One of the officers was found guilty of excessive force; the other officers were cleared of all charges. The verdicts were broadcast live, and word spread quickly throughout Los Angeles. At various points throughout the city that afternoon, people began rioting. Riots erupted on the streets of south central Los Angeles and soon expanded to disrupt and threaten lives and property in much of the city and county of Los Angeles.

In South Central Los Angeles, crowds began to congregate almost immediately to protest the verdicts. The street corner protests began to grow in number and size-first angry and then violent – a situation dramatized by the beating of a white truck driver four hours after the verdicts were announced. During the next six days, the reaction escalated into a terrifying reign of violence, widespread looting, and mass destruction of property in many communities across the city. The swiftness and ferocity of these events stunned the entire city and nation.

The first incident, which occurred within an hour after the verdicts were announced, took place in the Hyde Park neighborhood of the 77th Street Police District. The intersection of Florence and Normandie, considered one of the “flash points,” was the scene of repeated violent activity beginning before 4:00 p.m. The events there were covered by live television and reached their peak at approximately 6:45 p.m., when several young African-American males dragged Reginald Denny, a passing motorist, from his truck and beat him close to death. The violence and lawlessness escalated and spread to the north and west.

By 6:30 p.m., a crowd had gathered outside Parker Center, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) headquarters, which had been stormed and vandalized within the hour. This incident gripped the attention of police commanders. Firefighters were being attacked-one was shot and hospitalized in the early evening while responding to a call.

The lawlessness involved physical violence, looting, and arson, which resulted in massive destruction of property. According to the City in Crisis, the rioting was cyclical in nature and occurred with equal intensity in daylight hours and during the night, unlike past civil disorders. Disturbances which began in the morning gathered momentum during the day and reached a high point in the evening, declining during the early morning hours. Destruction was most severe on the second day and tapered off only on the fourth and fifth days.

At least forty-four [possibly 58] people died and hundreds [possibly more than 2,000, or even 4,000] were injured before order was restored Property damage reached the billion dollar mark because of rampaging looters and the thousands of fires that they set. It began as a small disturbance in south central LA, but quickly escalated and spread rapidly throughout the city and country. Arsonists set over 4,600 fires that at least partially burned a reported 10,000 businesses. Reports on the number arrested ranged from 12,000 to 17,000. Emergency workers were soon stretched to the limit in their efforts to cope with the crisis. The violence initially overwhelmed law enforcement agencies, resulting in the burning of large areas of the city. The LA riots of 1992 were unquestionably the most costly civil disturbance in US history.

The initial response of many city officials was marked by uncertainty, confusion, and lack of coordination. Within the LAPD, there was no meaningful integration with any other arm of government. The LAPD was uncharacteristically hesitant in responding to initial incidents of disorder – which later would be considered a major factor in their inability to control the unrest.

As the fires spread across Los Angeles beginning in the late afternoon of Apri1 29, 1992, unprecedented demands were placed on the Los Angeles City Fire Department, in particular, because it was forced to respond to calls for assistance while confronted at times by hostile individuals and crowds armed with assorted weapons. The fire fighters were severely hampered by the response time and level of escort support which the Los Angeles Police Department was able to muster.

Both the state and federal governments responded quickly to the crisis. The governor of California committed the state police and two thousand National Guard soldiers to assist in restoring law and order on 30 April. At 2230 on 29 April 1992, as part of the response to this disorder, the 3d Battalion, 160th Infantry (Mechanized), 40th Infantry Division, California National Guard, was ordered to mobilize. CANG’s initial response was slow and somewhat disorganized. Its troops did not arrive in the streets until 17 hours after Wilson’s order or not until the evening of April 30. Between 2100 and 2400 the following day, all 3d Battalion companies deployed to their assigned areas. It was the first tactical battalion to be mobilized, the first to deploy to the streets of LA, and the last to redeploy. By the early morning of 30 April, the Governor of California had ordered state police and about 2,000 guardsmen into the area to restore order. The first of the National Guard units, the 670th Military Police Company, traveled almost 300 miles from its main armory and arrived the same afternoon to assist local police.

Lacking proper warning by LAPD, CANG loaned out to local agencies key items of riot control equipment such as face shields, riot batons and lock plates for their M-16 rifles. Logistics failures included ammunition shortages and transportation and communications snafus. Training was inadequate and predicated on the mistaken belief that the troops would face only a riot and not “low-intensity conflict (or urban warfare)” Training before and during the crisis was based on out of date “crowd control” techniques prescribed in the 1985 Army Field Manual 19-15, Civil Disturbances. Absolutely no one, civilian or military, expected a situation where the National Guard would be needed on the streets in a matter of hours.

The federal response was timely. SecDef Richard Cheney put 4,000 Army and Marine troops on alert on 30 April 1992. President Bush invoked the Insurrection Act via Executive Order 12804 [not Executive Order 6427] of 1 May 1992, federalizing elements of the California National Guard and authorizing active military forces from the Army and Marine Corps to help restore law and order. Following this Presidential Executive Order on 1 May, JTF-LA was formed. The Executive Order federalized unit of the California Army National Guard (CAARNG) and authorized active military forces to assist in the restoration of law and order. JTF-LA formed and deployed within 24 hours. It operated in a unique domestic disturbance environment while working with city, county, state, federal agencies, and the CAARNG. JTF-LA was completely successful in meeting the three objectives defined in its mission statement, which were-assume command and control of federalized National Guard and AC Marine and Army forces, establish liaison with local law enforcement agencies; and conduct civil disturbance operations to restore order in the greater LA area.

As DOD’s executive agent for the crisis, the Secretary of the Army activated a civil disturbance plan, called GARDEN PLOT, to help orchestrate the callup and deployment of the military forces. Joint Task Force Los ANGELES consisted of about 10,000 guardsmen, nearly 1,500 marines from Camp Pendleton, and 2,000 soldiers from the 2d Brigade, 7th Infantry Division (Light), at Fort Ord. Virtually the entire 40th Infantry Division was mobilized. The military personnel were supposed to protect specific areas of the city, patrol neighborhoods after the police had restored order, and protect the fire fighters who were being attacked by mobs. Army troops showed restraint and discipline in handling a touchy situation. During the riots, they worked in areas of the city without electricity, where many buildings had been destroyed by fires, and resolved several potentially dangerous confrontations. The military would also provide some logistical support and supply riot gear, helicopters, tentage, and Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MRE). DOD estimated the final cost of the operation at about $15 million. A full complement of intelligence analysts was required to support the assault command post (ACP) during Operation Garden Plot. Law enforcement agencies generally have adequate data collection capabilities, but lack the ability to perform detailed intelligence analysis. Considerations for the G2 (S2) in an operation such as Garden Plot may include points similar to the following:

In Operation Garden Plot, military forces established intelligence exchange with suburban police departments, local city command post, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the LAPD emergency operations center, the city command center, the sheriffs office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Close and effective liaison must be established with all potential sources and agencies. Local law enforcement agencies have access to HUMINT, often unavailable to the military. The intelligence staff of the law enforcement agencies have unparalleled expertise in civil disturbances and gang behavior, while military analysts are in the best position to apply this experience to civil-military operations. During Operation Garden Plot, units used a variety of government-owned, off-the-shelf purchased, and personally owned equipment to effectively conduct operations. Additional communications equipment included such things as cellular phones, faxsimile machines, and police scanners.

For many days after, it was impossible for people living in South Central and Koreatown to purchase the minimum necessities. The city’s mayor lifted the curfew on 4 May, and troops departed Los Angeles by 6 May.

This is a document for which I can provide no positive proof of authenticity. My own daughter called Me a conspiracy theorist yesterday,so I might as well live up to expectations.

 

CODEWORD: CABLESPLICE

 

(This is a secret document being circulated among Top Government And UN people)

An Aggressive Program to Counter The Disrupters Movement

Recent efforts by The Disrupters Movement to gain political influence are beginning to seriously and adversely affect public perceptions and understanding of ongoing programs aimed at smoothing the transfer of sovereignty and power from national governments to super-national statist organizations unless such efforts are countered and discredited, the task of creating a unified global government under UN control will be far more difficult. The most dangerous element of The Disrupters Movement are those that are part of the Christian Fundamentalist majority. The following memorandum offers a set of policy prescriptions designed to counter-act their, efforts,

ANALYSIS OF PROBLEM

Although there has always been opposition from groups and individuals with a conservative, isolationist attitude, the recent growth of such opposition, and the ability and organizational success of these groups has raised serious concern in recent years. Unless steps are taken to meet the challenge posed by The Disrupters Movement, it is possible that these groups could make serious inroads into the public complacence which has been so carefully nurtured over the past fifty Years, The threat is two-fold. First, there is the traditional conservative political threat, one which can be traced back to pre-W.W.II isolationism and political conservatism. These groups are not of particular concern as their organizing ability and numbers do not suggest the capability for amassing significant political power. It is the second category, the “Christian Fundamentalists,” that pose the greatest threat. These people are representative of a massive population of Americans and if allowed to propagandize and organize that base could present serious obstacles to further progress,

I. Overt Programs;

Overt programs to counter growing influence of Christian and other groups should take various forms:

A. An active effort aimed at promoting the benefits of global organizations and institutions. Media stories, books, conferences, and other means should be utilized to get the story out in appropriate fashion.

Appearances

B. Appearances by political figures, well-known celebrities and other influential figures at events connected to international and super- national organizations and institutions. Of particular use are events which involve “feel-good” operations such as UNICEF, Feed the Children, Americare, etc.

C. Promotion of peaceful uses of atomic energy, disarmament as a necessary condition to peace and security, and tolerance and acceptance of non-Christian faiths should be promoted consistently but with enough subtlety so as not to turn off the targeted populations.

1. Under no circumstances, however. should such efforts be allowed to raise fears regarding those goals, nor should they provide substantive evidence of the true objectives of U.S.G. policy.

2. An important means of developing support for disarmament and the reliance on the United Nations to impose global order is through raising fears of nuclear weapons. By playing up the danger of nuclear war, It should be possible to generate considerable public support for further movement towards the disarmament of national states. This diverts attention from the real nature of disarmament effort by portraying it as necessary to world peace, rather than a step on the road to world government.

D. A massive attack on The Disrupters Movement, and especially Christian religion groups. This assault would challenge them as intolerant, hateful, exclusionist, and potentially dangerous. Such a program would include the following:

1. Efforts should be made to falsely portray their objectives as the creation of a religious theocracy and the imposition of strict religious interpretation of the Bible as the basis for political participation in “The New Christian America.” This can best be accomplished by focusing on the most outrageous and extremist statements and members, while down playing the more moderate membership.

2. ” Christian ” groups should whenever possible be portrayed as fringe elements of the country’s religious population, not especially numerous and certainly not representative of “most” Christians. 3. At every opportunity these “Christian” groups should be presented as vicious, intolerant, and especially as anti-Semitic. The selective use of quotes, and if necessary, the use of invented statements, can be most effective means of accomplishing this task.

Arrest

4. Arrest either on criminal charges or on mental Inquest warrants certain members of The Disrupters Movement who by their fanatical religious life-styles and/or their EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS would be psychologically and physically prepared to survive outside of the government control.

5. Harassment on criminal charges or mental inquest warrants of those who listen to and/or sympathize with The Disrupters Movement.

II. Covert Programs: Covert programs may be equally as important, if not more so, to countering the increasing effectiveness of The Disrupters Movement.

A. Infiltration of The Disrupters Movement by sympathetic agents is an extremely useful tool in combating their efforts.

1. By carrying out extreme acts, and especially acts of violence, such individuals can bring discredit and public condemnation against The Disruption Movement.

2. By raising confusion , and care fully encouraging splits and controversy within The Disrupters Movement, such agents will be able to reduce the effectiveness and coherency of those groups.

B. Individuals who have been groomed to operate outside the usual channels of political activity should be activated and placed in positions in which they appear to be in opposition to USG policy.

1. These persons would speak out publicly in opposition to our policies, but would be in fact be sympathetic to our long term objectives. By carefully and selectively providing false or misleading information, and information of a seemingly scandalous or dramatic nature, they would seem to be supporting the agenda of The Disrupters Movement. But when the information the promulgated was shown to be patently false, It would further damage the credibility of the opposition.

2. The use of certain talk radio personalities along the lines suggested in paragraph 1 has already proven quite effective and further ventures along these lines could be beneficial.

3. In extreme situations, it may become useful or even necessary for these undercover assets to carry out certain operations against members of The Disrupters Movement who are interfering with CABLESPLICE. In some cases, termination’s with extreme prejudice may be called for.

Subversion

C. Subversion and Elimination of the Second Amendment

1. One of the most critical efforts must be the removal of firearms from individual control. The on-going long-term program to accomplish this is to bear efforts along current lines are advised.

a. The use of “agent provocateurs,” individuals who are seemingly insane (but who are never taken alive) who create highly publicized mass killings with automatic weapons has been particularly useful in molding public opinion. Similarly, the regular use of random killings in large urban areas as a way of creating a climate of fear and violence has resulted in significant gains for the gun-control point of view. Such programs are extremely useful and should be continued and possibly expanded.

b. On-going efforts to gain small footholds in gun-control are worthwhile as they open the door to further controls later on. The importance of eliminating the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms cannot be stressed too much.

III. DISINFORMATION PROGRAMS:

These programs should be designed to carefully seed the media with false and misleading information about long-term goals and plans, as well as forged and deceptive details about The Disrupters Movement.

A. Careful and selective placement of spurious and potentially damaging news stories in the popular media is an excellent means of raising doubts and fears of the population. Our opponents have made good use of this technique, we should do likewise.

B. One of the most effective disinformation programs has been the selected use of “expose” books and stories, all reputedly written by former government and super-government officials, but in fact developed within the NSA and CIA.

1. Connections to actual government operations, and the bona fides of such expose authors are deliberately vague in order to make tracing and verifying their stories difficult.

2. Although the books and information “exposed” would seemingly be extremely critical of our long-term programs and objectives, the contradictions contained within, the difficulty of verifying either authors or details, and the wild-eyed style verging on the Irrational would all work to discredit and raise doubts.

The presentation

3. The presentation of fringe and extremist religious doctrine and beliefs, or the presentation of Christian religious beliefs in particularly dogmatic and intolerant fashion, would help to turn popular opinion against The Disrupter Movement.

IV. Other Propaganda Efforts

A. Print Media/Publications

1. Appropriate use of popular media intended to discredit and attack opponents is a fundamental tool of countering The Disrupters Movement.

2. While control of the major media outlets is crucial to such efforts, it is through “fringe” media publications that the most damage can be done to The Disrupters Movement. Continued use of assets within the counter media can be beneficial.

B. Electronic/Computer Systems: Electronic computer systems, bulletin boards, and information superhighway in general is an area of considerable importance to efforts to combat the activities of The Disrupter Movement. The ability of opponents to utilize computer bulletin boards to pass information and educate people must be met with an active program of disinformation and attack.

1. One means of countering the effectiveness of such opposition efforts is the simple expedient of overloading their bulletin boards. A single operator with one computer can set a program in motion that will send out thousands of messages. The sheer volume of such messages is more then the content. Most people will give up rather then read through hundreds and thousands of messages.

2. A second means of countering the opposition’s use of computer technology is through the careful placing of disinformation agents. Such agents can take two forms:

a. Agents may be placed who will simply argue against the opposition, using delaying and confusing tactics such as constantly demanding references and “proof” of allegations, referring to obscure and difficult to find documents as evidence that the opposition is wrong, and generally forcing the opposition to waste tremendous amounts of time simply defending itself from spurious and irrelevant attacks.

Other

b. Other agents have been placed with a more subtle purpose mind. Such agents would take on the persons WA attitudes of members of The Disrupters Movement, but would present the opposition case in ways that will ultimately discredit them. The necessary effort to correct. the messages posted by these agents, and the resulting appearance of disarray within their camp should present considerable opportunities for further assaults on The Disrupters Movement.

3. In cases of computer networks where it is highly imperative that the efforts of The Disrupters be neutralized, coordinated assaults can be arranged using aliases and multiple membership ID’s to present a wide array of negative and meddlesome messages.

C. Diversionary efforts

1. Bread and Circuses

a. Celebrities: The use of celebrities is a proven means of diverting attention from serious political Issues. Moreover, the use of selected celebrity figures as political spokesperson can be a very effective means of getting our message across.

b. Sports: Sports are useful as a means of diverting attention from serious political issues and dulling the minds of the populace. By focusing all their energies on sporting events, we can prevent people from undertaking the intense and serious study necessary to take effective political action.

c. Gambling: The provision of numerous outlets for public gambling serves multiple purposes; it serves to keep the popular attention engaged on sporting events, as well as what has become known as “lottery fever. ” Perhaps more important, widespread gambling not only keeps the general public poor, it provides needed income for our own uses– especially when allowed in the form of state lotteries which purport to provide money for education, senior citizens, or other popular purposes. In fact, through the careful use of accounting manipulation, much of the funds raised are being diverted to support many of the other programs and efforts described in this memo.

Finally here are the EOs that are the fly in the ointment.

State of National Emergency

The following are a few examples of some EOs and their purposes that relate to a State of national emergency[1]

10995–Federal seizure of all communications media in the United States;

10997–Federal seizure of all electric power, fuels, minerals, public and private;

10998–Federal seizure of all food supplies and resources, public and private and all farms and equipment;

10999–Federal seizure of all means of transportation, including cars, trucks, or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports and water ways;

11000–Federal seizure of American people for work forces under federal supervision, including the splitting up of families if the government so desires;

11001–Federal seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private;

11002–Empowers the Postmaster General to register all men, women and children in the United States of America;

11003–Federal seizure of all airports and aircraft;

11004–Federal seizure of all housing and finances and authority to establish Forced Relocation. Authority to designate areas to be abandoned as “unsafe,” establish new locations for the populations, relocate communities, build new housing with public funds;

11005–Seizure of all railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities, both public and private;

11051–Provides FEMA complete authorization to put above orders into effect in times of increased international tension of economic or financial crisis (FEMA will be in control in case of “National Emergency”).

“President William Jefferson Clinton wrote one EO that can cover all of these. He wroteExecutive Order 12919 on June 3, 1994, which was released on June 6, 1994.

This EO will be the only thing he needs to enact in order to become a fully empowered dictator. It covers all of the EOs mentioned previously. The only thing this EO doesn’t do is define WHAT the “national emergency” would have to be in order for this EO to be signed. Please keep that in mind. Anything can be declared a “national emergency” to facilitate EO 12919 being enacted.” [2]

The Greatest 21st Century Privilege

The Greatest 21st Century Privilege

by  Anthony Wile

Despite its growing horrors, the 21st century has proven a profound blessing in the sense that we can see, step by step how tyranny is being implemented around the world and especially in the West. In doing so, we can chart its pathways and intricacies. Some may not consider this in any sense a blessing but we do. To watch the descent of tyranny on the Western world is a startling sight, which plumbs the depths of the human spirit and provides us with spectacles of evil and good, cowardice and courage. It is a great (if sad) time to run a free-market website that reports on libertarian social and economic trends.

I used to wonder how a financial depression took hold and what it would look like. I used to wonder how a society would lose its moral and social underpinnings and lurch toward authoritarianism. I wondered, even, what it would be like in pre-war Germany when the Nazis were coming to power. But the past decade has offered an education in all these concepts. Anyone paying close attention does not need to wonder anymore.

The first decade of the 21st century has been a time of resonant, historical themes, broadly observed. It is a truly historical struggle between those who wish to control and manipulate human societies and those who wish to make human societies, especially Western ones, freer. In the 20th century, one might anticipate going to a ball game or an elaborate black-tie social event, but nothing is more fascinating than watching this great game unfold early in the 21st.

It is not a comfortable experience of course. The forces seeking to shut down civil discourse and stifle dissent seem to come from all sides, and their power is discouraging. Increasingly, they seem to pervert the basic institutions of civil society: schools, media, government and even religion. Each element of perverted society now has an elaborate rationale for why freedom needs to be pruned. The children need to be made safe. Society needs to be made safe. The workplace needs to be secured.

In fact, the proximate reason to write this article comes from news that government approval will be needed for certain kinds of employment. There are at least two programs involved; both, of course, coming out of the Department of Homeland Security. The acronyms are TWIC and SWAC: Transportation Worker Identification Credential and Secure Worker Access Consortium. Infowars.com, which seems to have broken the story, explains the following:

TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”

SWAC is even more draconian. It is “a large-scale collaborative effort among public and private authorities, facility owners, contractors, and labor organizations who are partnering to prevent terrorist activity by creating a trusted contractor community. Over 500 organizations, including the Port Authority of NY and NJ, which manages and maintains the bridges, tunnels, bus terminals, airports, PATH, and seaports that are essential to the bi-state region's trade and transportation capabilities, have joined this effort,” according to the union website.

These two programs constitute a considerable escalation in the intrusiveness of government. Were it to stop here, it would be bad enough. But Homeland Security never stops. The department recently partnered with WalMart to set up a program to encourage shoppers to report any incidents they might consider dangerous or even out-of-the ordinary. The kinds of programs Homeland Security is rolling out now will surely create an ever-more paranoid, inequitable and ultimately unlivable society. It will be one where citizens will be scanned, photographed and ultimately tagged and labeled – all in the name of “keeping the homeland safe” from terror.

The ground upon which this society is being built is shaky indeed. Most if not all of the terror incidents that have taken place over the past few years have at the center of them some sort of incitement. The poor, young people (most US and Western terrorists are young and impoverished) have been manipulated, funded and literally shoved in the direction of violent acts that they probably would not have undertaken if not for undercover American and British intelligence agents. It is, in a word, entrapment over and over again.

It is easy to see that the dramatic escalation of government intrusiveness has occurred since 9/11. Since there are many questions that still swirl around 9/11 itself, the enthusiasm with which Western governments have clamped down on their citizens is even more remarkable. It goes far beyond what is just or necessary.

Fortunately, there are counter-trends. Readers of the Bell will be aware that we believe the Internet itself is acting as a kind of modern-day Gutenberg press, revealing much that was hidden during the 20th century. Its truth-telling is arrayed against an intergenerational, familial, Anglo-American elite that wants a New World Order and uses fear-based promotions – dominant social themes – to push Western middle classes into giving up power and wealth to globalist facilities such as the UN, WHO, the IMF, etc.

Offering a website that covers freedom issues and free-market concepts at this point in time is actually quite humbling. The opportunity to tell the truth about what is going on in the West is something many do not have the opportunity to do. They are trapped in situations where they must keep quiet to care for themselves and their families. However, there are also a growing number of voices around the world that are making their disapproval with current authoritarian trends increasingly clear. The ability to add one's voice to this swelling chorus is perhaps the greatest privilege of the modern era.

Gold Consumption and China’s Great Leap Forward

December 18th, 2010 by

 

Eric Roseman (December 15, 2010)

Montreal, Canada

The Great Leap Forward, which started in 1958, was China’s long-term drive to modernize her economy. Though she didn’t do much under Mao’s authority, that certainly changed direction starting in 1978 under Deng Xiao Ping, the father of China’s version of modern laissez-faire capitalism.

China’s owes its incredible economic success to Deng’s experiment with SEZs, or Special Economic Zones, introduced in 1978 in Southern China.

Turn the clock forward 32 years and China is now not only the world’s largest gold-mining industry but also one of the few governments still actively encouraging the domestic consumption and ownership of physical gold. China has a rich history of gold ownership, whereby its citizens have relied on gold as a store of value for several centuries.

Earlier this month, China revealed the nature of her insatiable appetite for gold: imports surged more than five times compared to 12 months earlier to 209 metric tons. Estimates point to 2010 Chinese gold consumption hitting around 600 tons compared to 610 tons in India.

In some ways you could argue that China’s modern version of the Great Leap Forward is really the Great Leap in Gold Consumption. If current trends persist, China will overtake India as the single largest source of fabrication demand in 2011.

Another interesting development is China’s increasing openness of its domestic gold market and how it continues to liberalize gold trading and physical gold ownership. I find this remarkable considering it’s still largely a closed society brainwashed by socialistic rhetoric. Of course, market economics have clashed with this great nation before and it seems plausible that communism and capitalism will clash again in the future as society demands more freedom and political expression. But that’s another story.

Launched way back in 1910, the Chinese Gold and Silver Exchange is the only market in China that trades spot gold. Yesterday, the government announced it will launch the first international gold contract valued in Chinese renminbi next year. The government is encouraging Hong Kong to become a major conduit for not only Greater China gold trading, but also a long-term rival to London, Zurich and New York – major bullion dealing centers.

As China’s currency becomes fully convertible – as it must to be truly coined a great economic superpower – it will also eventually hold more gold bullion than any other nation. The United States, at some point, will have to relinquish a good chunk of her gold stash to pay for decades of profligate spending. Somehow I doubt the Chinese will forever accept dollar bills as America’s long-term credit continues its sad decline. The great gold transfer is underway and China will win this race.

Constitutional Judo

December 16th, 2010 by

http://neithercorp.us/npress/2010/12/constitutional-judo/

By Giordano Bruno

Neithercorp Press

In all things, there exists a ‘point of balance’; a line that, if crossed, results in the sudden and expedient loss of our self-determinism and makes us subservient to the fickle whims of social, political, and physical gravity. We are “thrown” into the air, as it were, and the landing is rarely ever pleasant. The U.S. Constitution and the civil liberties it outlines is itself one of these historic points of balance. Its original purpose was to temper the most epic of grappling matches ever ignited; between the relentless constructs of government, and the individual freedoms of the common man. The ultimate problem inherent in this struggle is one of consistency, vigilance, and labor…

While the concept of the Democratic Republic and the Constitution was meant to remove suffocating class warfare from our political life and free us from the numerous dangers of elitism, invariably, those men who thirst for power over others find a way to insinuate themselves into any system, regardless of checks and balances, especially when the populace does not fulfill its necessary role as watchdog and tireless sentinel. Many Americans often assume that ‘the people’ derive their power from the Constitution, but the reality is actually reverse; the Constitution, in fact, derives its power from the people. Our duty (which some have forgotten) has always been to protect the rights and liberties inscribed on those pages of parchment. Not just to know those rights, or recite them, but to implement and defend them in our day-to-day existence. Without the constant nurturing cultural pulse of sound minds and courageous hearts, the Constitution dies.

Many in our society, instead of taking on the responsibility of preserving their freedoms, have instead handed it over to the trappings of government. The fatal error here is obvious; the corporatized and over-centralized political landscape of America’s government today does not hold the same values as the people it is determined to lord over. We have witnessed the parasitic possession of our system, know it to be corrupt, yet still seem to expect this bureaucratic monstrosity to cradle our liberties in good faith!

Government is a tool; a mechanical apparatus that can be used to either preserve freedom, or annihilate it. Its use depends upon those men who wield it, and the men who wield our government today certainly do not have the expansion of freedom in mind. In this article, we will examine the many points of contention (balancing points) brewing as our exceedingly globalist leaning political leaders overstep their bounds. Any one of these points, if allowed to falter by Americans, could throw the whole of our heritage into disarray…

Death By A Thousand Cuts

If you’ve been living at the center of the Earth for the past decade, or playing online games till daybreak battling for dominion of Castle Grayskull, then you may have missed out on the numerous attempts by our Government (under both major parties) to erode our freedoms one precious layer at a time. Some of these attempts have so far fallen flat, while others have been frighteningly successful. Here is just a sample of various recent actions and legislation designed specifically to swindle away your rights, if not the shirt right off your back:

Patriot Acts I & II: The Patriot Act is what I call “chameleon legislation”; it’s designed to be “open to interpretation” by officials and to be modified for whatever purpose they happen to deem fit at the moment. Ultimately, both Patriot Acts opened a terrible gateway to a world where any freedom is expendable, especially if it means stopping terrorists and “evil doers”. Of course, the manner in which terrorism is defined by proponents of the Patriot Act is wildly general. ANYONE could be defined as a terrorist, and any threat could be construed as a matter of national security. The true goal of this legislation was not to protect the public, but to untie the hands of the establishment when implementing further destructive actions, as well as to plant the fog of doubt into the minds of Americans as to the continued validity of the Constitution itself.

The Enemy Belligerents Act: The Enemy Belligerents Act is a perfect example of how the leadership caste of the Democrats and Republicans (who are neo-cons, not true conservatives) work in tandem to institute globalist policy. In this case, the act was introduced by the dastardly duo of John McCain and Joe Lieberman. To put it simply, this legislation, if fully imposed, would allow the government to label any person they choose, even an American citizen, as an enemy combatant. This means you could be arrested without being officially charged, imprisoned without a trial or legal council for an unspecified length of time, and no one, not even your family, would be told where you were. They should just re-name it the ‘Shanghai Act’, because it basically legalizes government piracy. The only problem is that this shanghai is less likely to end with tropical island adventure and more likely to end with you being tossed in a dark stinky hole in the middle of another Abu Ghraib surrounded by Blackwater mongoloids with a penchant for naked man dog-piles. Again, this is the kind of poison your government thinks up on a regular basis…

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-645

The John Warner Defense Authorization Act: A bill passed by George W. Bush in 2007 with very little initial media coverage. Allows the Federal Government at the direction of the president to subvert Posse Comitatus and use the military within the borders of the U.S. as a police force without any consent from state governments. Also gives the office of the president unprecedented powers over the National Guard. Just add any real or engineered national disaster and what you get is a perfect recipe for Hurricane Katrina deluxe. Martial Law, here we come…

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h109-5122

Establishment Of Northcom: Northcom (United States Northern Command) is, at bottom, the teeth behind legislation like the John Warner Defense Act. If martial law is declared in the U.S., it will be Northcom and its assigned military units that will stand at the forefront. Northcom’s stated mission is to “defend the homeland”, supposedly against terrorism, however, much of Northcom’s focus in annual exercises like ‘Vigilant Shield’ has been to prepare for civil unrest and continuity of government. Meaning, they train under the assumption that YOU will be the enemy. The first person posted to command Northcom was General Ralph Eberhart, the same man who was in charge of NORAD on 9/11. Apparently, if you ignore available intelligence and fail completely in your assigned duties, you get a promotion in the upper echelons of the military today, unless I missed something, and he didn’t fail…

Presidential Directive 51: A presidential action shrouded in secrecy and general cloak and dagger spookiness. When ignorant yuppies accuse the Liberty Movement of “paranoia”, I always point out PDD 51, and ask them if they are at least intelligent enough to be concerned. This order was initiated by George W. Bush and continued by Barack Obama, and is designed to give the president virtual dictatorial powers during a state of “national emergency”. It dissolves all states rights and places the entire country under the purview of Northcom, and Homeland Security. The guise of “continuity of government” is used as a rationale. Also allows the president to declare a state of emergency for almost any reason. Members of Congress and even some members of Homeland Security who have requested to read the entire directive have been denied. The bill is apparently so disturbing that Obama doesn’t even want those with security clearance to view the full document. Though I’m sure there is some grey area that can be exploited where classified materials are concerned, as far as I can tell from my research, Obama’s withholding of information on a directive such as PDD 51 from Congress is wholly illegal.

http://www.fas.org/irp/offdocs/nspd/nspd-51.htm

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA): Supported by both Bush and Obama. The word “foreign” is highly misleading. FISA allows telecom companies to supply the personal data and communications of anyone, including Americans, to the government without threat of civil retribution (lawsuit). Under Constitutional law, any invasion of privacy by government authorities must first be approved through an individualized warrant. The person or premises to be monitored must be specified, and the reason behind the surveillance must be clearly explained. FISA does away with all of these protections to your privacy and gives free reign to government to spy on whoever they choose without any oversight whatsoever. It even allows for mass surveillance, or data collation, on entire subsections of the populace. What I find most interesting about FISA is the way in which it brazenly breaks the barrier between government and corporate power. We all know about the revolving door in Washington, but in the past, the idea of the barrier was at least somewhat maintained for appearances, if nothing else. The trick to FISA is that “technically”, it is the telecoms that are doing the actual surveillance, and not government. This is, I’m sure, the argument that will be used by the Feds if FISA is ever taken to the Supreme Court under the Fourth Amendment. The reality, though, is that the telecoms and the government are one in the same, and to treat them as two separate legal entities is to blind one’s self to the facts. Now, Mussolini’s definition of fascism (the melding of government and corporate infrastructure into a single entity with a single purpose) absolutely seems to apply to the U.S.

Big Brother Technotronic Super Villain-esqe Surveillance Grid: Ever feel like you are being watched? Get used to it, says Homeland Security! CCTV cameras have doubled in most U.S. cities over the past two years, while New York has tripled theirs in only six months. The TSA has been given invincible IRS-like goon squad status and now fondles and x-rays airport travelers at will, storing biometric data without consent and generally treating people worse than cattle. Don’t care because you don’t fly? Don’t worry! Naked body scanners are coming to bus and train stations near you! Hell, if we don’t put a stop to this horror soon, the TSA may roll scanners out on street corners.

A friend of mine was recently on a trip to Boston and went to see the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest commissioned American war vessel still afloat. He related to me that his excitement was soon smothered when he realized visitors had to pass through metal detectors and security just to see the boat. I’m sure that the government is merely trying to prevent Al Qaeda from sneaking on board with box cutters, hijacking the ship, and sailing it into the Sears tower, causing the building to implode at near freefall speed.

The reason he was disenchanted with the experience was because he knew the metal detectors and security served little purpose, except to condition people into accepting that this was the norm. Everywhere you go, there DHS is.

Next of course would be easily tracked national ID cards, which were attempted a couple of years ago with little success under the Real ID Act. State compliance for the Real ID was postponed until May 2011, which is right around the corner. We’ll see if the states cave, or stand their ground. Finally, no surveillance society would be complete without citizen spies. Homeland Security is establishing its new “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign in your local Walmart. Yes, imagine the ghoulish face of cave troll Janet Napolitano leering down at aisle five as you attempt to save a dollar on frozen buffalo wings. She slobbers rhetoric about how you are surrounded by terrorists while you try to find that economy sized box of Count Chocula. Wouldn’t we all just feel safer?

Bailout Bills (All Variations): I find that a lot of people like to blame our current economic doomfest on one political party or the other, stumbling about in the dark in a sad attempt to trace the roots of the credit and mortgage collapse back to Obama, Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, etc. Everyone is desperate to play cheerleader for their team, not realizing that both teams are fake and almost every president since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 is to blame for selling out the American people to global banks. Let’s not forget, both Obama and Bush supported bailout legislation which is now widely considered to be an abject failure. The majority of Americans according to most polls opposed these bills, and yet they were still passed. What do the bailouts have to do with the loss of Constitutional rights? When the entirety of your country’s financial future is poured into the coffers of international banking elites and your currency is subsequently debased if not destroyed, leaving you with nothing but debt and supranational centralization, it is a certainty that a total loss of your rights will soon follow.

FDA Food Safety Modernization Act S. 510: Currently being considered for passage in the House. Yet another bill written in such a way as to make it wide open for interpretation by the authorities. First of all, the FDA has never been synonymous with “safety”, considering half the products they approve end up causing cancer or shrinking your testes. They would approve rat urine for mass consumption if a company like Monsanto wanted to market it. The FDA’s true roll has been to let major corporations violate safety regulations unobstructed while ruthlessly bringing the hammer down on smaller businesses. Now, the FDA has set its aim upon not just small farms, but personal gardens!

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510

The bill gives the FDA far reaching powers over what it terms “food production facilities”, which are defined as “any farm, ranch, orchard, vineyard, aquaculture facility, or confined animal-feeding operation”. It also places all food production under the control of Homeland Security in the event of a “national emergency” (there’s that poorly defined phrase again). I have heard some organic growers and ranchers shrug off the bill, believing that the FDA would never take advantage of the broad interpretation and bring pressure on private gardens or food trade. This kind of naivety is always astonishing to me. When has a society ever opened a door to power that its government has not taken quick advantage of? In fact, the FDA has already begun harassing the Amish, of all people, for private farm trade, even without S. 510:

http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2010/02/08/fda-agents-invade-amish-farm-in-pa/

http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/brooklyn/2008/05/01/2008-05-01_raw_milk_lovers_upset_over_amish_arrest.html

These are non-commercial farms, yet the FDA believes it has the authority to dictate their food production activities. If the government is willing to set its laser guided sites on a pacifist group that still rides around in horse and buggy, then they’ll definitely have no qualms going after the rest of us.

Anti-Constitutional Arguments For Dummies

Most people enjoy the advantages of freedom and are naturally conservative towards government, whether they realize it or not. Because of the rather unsavory past actions of the neo-cons (globalists), the word “conservative” has been sullied, and is now associated with corporatism and big government. However, real conservatism has always been quite revolutionary. True conservatives believe in the principle of limited government, and individualism above collectivism, which means they usually find themselves the target of establishment fury. True conservatives are almost always in rebellion against the system, because the system is almost always operated by those who are anti-freedom. Show me a self proclaimed conservative who supports proliferation of government with a smile and I’ll show you a very confused man.

The label “Conservative” should really be interchangeable with “Constitutionalist”, and once this is understood, anti-Constitutional arguments can be viewed without the blurred distractions of the false left/right paradigm. We begin to understand that the conflict is not between Democrat and Republican, Liberal or Conservative, because those terms have been warped and their meaning eroded. The conflict we face is instead between individualists (Constitutionalists), and collectivists (globalists).

We’ve all heard the gamut of anti-Constitutional arguments in the past, but almost always through the left/right filter. Let’s set that filter aside for a moment and consider a few of them once again more objectively…

Argument 1 – The Constitution is an outdated document and is no longer practical for the modern world:

I’ve heard this argument from both sides of the aisle once again indicating that left vs. right is all fantasy. Does a good idea ever become outdated? What about inborn instincts? Can the desire for freedom ever be impractical?

The suggestion that the Constitution is “too old” is ludicrous for many reasons. First, the idea of an independent republic is painfully new compared to the long wash of human empires filled with vast stretches of feudalism and tyranny. Globalism is often touted as the next step in the cultural evolution of man, but it is really a giant leap backwards compared to Constitutionalism, representing yet another old centralist autocracy marketed in a modern way. A global feudal state is still a feudal state.

Second, the guidelines of the Constitution are built upon social necessities that have never and will never disappear. The right to speak openly one’s opinions or observations without fear of government reprisal is not a right that we will ever find ourselves too modern to appreciate. The right to bear arms and defend oneself will always be essential to a culture that wishes to prevent despotism in its various forms. The right to privacy from all people, including the government, will never be programmed out of the public entirely. Every man has an innate need to live without being examined and judged as though he were under constant suspicion. Every aspect of the Constitution is archetypal, and therefore, as much a part of us our own eyes and ears. These things do not lose their usefulness, no matter what era we live in.

Third, I have yet to see a political dynamic that is more sincere and honorable than the U.S. Constitution. I have yet to see a social concept presented as an alternative to the Constitution that does not have an ulterior motive attached. If someone, anyone, can present a new system that improves upon the Constitution while retaining the liberties described in the Constitution, I would love to see it. I hear a lot of criticism of the Constitution by globalists, but I have never seen any of them present a workable replacement that the public would respect, or willingly accept.

Argument 2 – Some rights must be given up for the greater good:

I’ll tell you a little secret; there is no “greater good”, unless you are talking about personal conscience. If your version of the “greater good” demands that you supplant your personal conscience, then it is not “greater”, and it is not “good”.

Safety is usually the catalyzing issue that leads to relinquished liberties, but safety itself is an illusion. No government can promise you true safety. Life is dangerous, and filled with the unexpected. Get over it and stop projecting your fears on the rest of us. If someone really feels that they are in immediate danger of a terrorist attack, then they should build a concrete bunker for themselves and stay in it, instead of trying to impose a collective bunker made out of unconstitutional laws and government surveillance around all of us.

Ultimately, what IS the greater good in this situation? Is it an unaccountable globalist nanny state and the dissolution of all individual and national sovereignty for the sake of a few people’s delusions of security? Maybe I’m just reckless, but I’m not buying it…

Argument 3 – National sovereignty must be removed if we are to achieve world peace:

World peace sounds very nice, I admit, but anyone who thinks removing Constitutional boundaries and bowing to globalism is the cure for war is smoking something laced with a serious amount of something. Almost every war of the past century alone has been funded, facilitated, or outright ignited by the same types of global elitists who now demand that we centralize world economic and political power into their hands to end war. This isn’t irony, it’s actually very well thought out Hegelian gaming; a sort of anti-Karma that rewards evil and punishes the respectable.

We have been led to believe that peace requires some kind of Faustian trade; freedom for harmony. But, legitimate freedom is a harbinger of peace, and nothing, not even the promise of harmony, is worth trading it away.

Argument 4 – The government could never undo Constitutional liberties because we would just vote them out:

This argument shows a serious lack of insight into how our government actually functions. As I have pointed out, most of the anti-Constitutional legislation described in this article was supported by both major parties. Therefore, it would be logical to then consider that voting out one party and replacing them with the other makes little difference as to the policies the government pursues. Unless you are voting for third party or liberty based candidates, your stop at the ballot box was a big waste of time. Sorry, that’s just reality. The people who write in Mickey Mouse have more sense than most of the voting public. The point? Elections change very little on a federal level.

The argument is also sometimes reversed by nihilists, who claim that the American public is to blame for government corruption because they voted for said politicians in the first place. Again, how the public votes has little bearing on most major elections because they have not been given a real choice. I get more excitement when deciding between Coke or Pepsi.

Argument 5 – The Founding Fathers couldn’t live up to their Constitutional ideals:

Yes, Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, and he also tried to implement a gradual emancipation for all slaves. It’s a contradiction. Jefferson, like all the Founding Fathers, was living in the midst of a revolutionary age filled with contradictions and conflict. The fact that they were able to sort through much of this and form a nation that at least aspired towards equal rights and independence is nothing short of a miracle. Washington made many mistakes, and so did Adams. In the context of the era in which they lived, they still did extraordinarily well, and this world is immensely better off because of their contributions.

This argument is perhaps the most dishonest of those I’ve heard, because it seeks to dismantle the very tangible and beneficial accomplishments of the revolutionary period by defaming men who cannot defend themselves because they are long since dead. It is successful when used to target people who know only historical events or dates but do not know more about the characters of the figures involved. That is not to say we should blindly idolize the Founding Fathers, on the contrary, we should endeavor to see them as real human beings with strengths, as well as flaws. Those flaws do not discredit what they built. What men are able to achieve in spite of their flaws is often far more meaningful and valuable than what they lose because of them.

Moral Ambiguity In Times Of Crisis

Liberty is most threatened in moments of great duress. Desperation breeds reckless abandon, and such an atmosphere is suffocating to wisdom. Each point of balance in the struggle for freedom requires considerable focus, and that focus can be twisted, flipped, and wrenched by the shock of disaster. The preservation of Constitutional rights depends greatly on our ability to maintain a sense of integrity and discipline as a culture, even when all the world seems to crumble around us.

Fear makes the insane seem reasonable. Financial collapse, war, civil unrest, all of these calamities can tempt us to silence our dissent, to do things we would not normally do, or to concede that which is precious to us. Even now, that kind of fear has led to many unfortunate compromises. The good news is, there is no freedom taken, that cannot be taken back.

The question is, how much are we willing to endure to see that our ideals survive? How hard are we willing to work? How much of our time, effort, and energy are we willing to expend? If the answer is not “all of it”, then we have failed already. What we have covered so far is the present situation, and by no means does it have to continue. When drawing a line in the sand, that line must first be drawn within. We must promise ourselves that it is here we will not bend, we will not lose balance, we will not be thrown. All liberty depends most on this.

Obama quietly erasing borders

Dem administration advancing 'North American Union' agenda


Posted: December 15, 2010

© 2010 WorldNetDaily

Acting quietly, below the radar of U.S. public opinion and without congressional approval, the Obama administration is implementing a key policy objective of the Security andProsperity Partnership of North America, or SPP, to erase the borderwith Mexico and Canada.

The administration is acting under a State Department-declared policy initiative described in a March 23fact sheet titled "United States-Mexico Partnership: A New Border Vision."

"Mexico and the United States have a shared interest in creating a 21st century border that promotes the security and prosperity of both countries," the State Department declared. "The U.S. and Mexican governments have launched a range of initiatives that challenge the traditional view of 'hold the line' and are developing a framework for a new vision of 21st century border management."

At the same time, CTV News in Canada has obtained a draft copy of a declaration between the U.S. and Canada entitled "Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Competitiveness," to be implemented by a newly created Canadian-U.S. "Beyond the BorderWorking Group."

Get "The Late Great USA" and find out how America is giving away its sovereignty

The two documents strongly suggest the Obama administration is pursuing a stealth bureaucratic methodology to establish a common North American border around the continent, encompassing the U.S., Canada and Mexico, while simultaneously moving to erase the borders between the U.S. and Mexico as well as between the U.S. and Canada.

Under the Bush administration's SPP, the U.S., Mexico and Canada organized some 20 different "shadow government" bureaucratic working groups composed of agency heads and undersecretaries in the three nations. The groups span a wide range of policy areas, from e-commerce, to aviation policy, to borders and immigration, trilateral travel, transportation, energy, environment, food and agriculture, health and financial services.

WND has reported since 2006 that a blueprint published in 2005 by the Council on Foreign Relations entitled "Building a North America Community" called for the establishment of a common security perimeter around North America by 2010 to facilitate the free movement of people, trade and capital between the three nations of North America.

In his 2001 book, "Toward a North American Community," American University professor Robert Pastor, a co-chair of the CFR blue ribbon committee that authored "Building a North American Community," called for the creation of a North American Commission, a North American Parliament, and a North American Court on Trade and Investment.

The language of the documents declaring "A New Border Vision" with Mexico and Canada could easily have been lifted directly from the CFR report or Pastor's book.

The 2005 CFR report "Building a North American Community" called on page xvii of the Foreword for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security perimeter, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter."

CTV News reported that the language of the draft agreement specified that "A New BorderVision" for the U.S. and Canada would involve "a perimeter approach to security, working together within, at, and away from the borders of our two countries in a way that supports economic competitiveness, job creation and prosperity, and in a partnership to enhance our security and accelerate the legitimate flow of people and goods between our two countries."

Similarly, the U.S. State Department fact sheet calling for "A New Border Vision" with Mexico specified five areas of "joint border management, co-responsibility for cross-bordercrime, and shared commitment to the efficient flow of legal commerce and travel," namely: enhancing public safety, securing flows of people and goods, expediting legitimate commerce and travel, engaging border communities, and setting policy.

Under "setting policy," the State Department fact sheet with Mexico called for achieving rapid policy change through "an agile inter-agency process within each country as well as a means by which both governments can easily coordinate at a bi-national level."

This provides additional support for the conclusion that the bureaucratic "working groups" established under SPP in the Bush administration will continue to operate under Obama administration.

CTV News reported that the draft declaration of "A New Border Vision" with Canada similarly also specified a cross-border policy agenda, including:

  • An integrated cargo security strategy; 
  • A joint approach to port and border security and screening; 
  • Cross-border sharing of information between law enforcement agencies; 
  • A closer working relationship between the two militaries in the event of emergencies; 
  • A new level of collaboration on preventing and recovering from counter attacks.

Affirming the continuance of the working group process, the draft declaration with Canada specifies the U.S. and Canada "intend to address threats at the earliest point possible, including outside the perimeter of our two countries."

The origin of the SPP can be traced to a trilateral summit meeting in Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005, between President George W. Bush, then-Mexican President Vicente Fox and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin.

At the end of the Waco summit, the three leaders simply declared that the U.S., Mexico and Canada were now in the Security and Prosperity Partnership, without the signing of any international agreement between the three countries or the ratifying of any trilateral treaty by the U.S. Senate.

The SPP in the administration of President Bush appeared designed to replicate the steps taken in Europe over a 50-year period following the end of World War II to transform an economic agreement under the European Common Market into a full-fledged regional government, operating as the European Union, with its own currency, the euro, functioning as the sole legitimate currency in what has become known as "the eurozone."

The concern was that under the SPP, the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, could evolve into a regional government, the North American Union, with a regional currency, the Amero, designed to replace the U.S. dollar, the Mexican peso and the Canadian dollar.

WND has reported analysts have believed the North American integration plan will proceed incrementally, largely below the radar, since the SPP was declared "dead" by one of its chief architects, American University Professor Robert A. Pastor, who for nearly 15 years has been a major proponent of building a "North American Community."

Marxist America: Robbed, Raped, and Ruined

Marxist America: Robbed, Raped, and Ruined

By David A. McElroy

Dec. 16, 2010

 

“Tis the season to be jolly,” the old carol recalls, but for many it is nearly impossible to be filled with Christmas cheer. Many Americans are feeling that they have been robbed, raped, and ruined. People fear the New Year 2011 will be even worse, judging by the entrails of America sacrificed upon the altars of Mammon, Molech, and Lucifer.
 
While many will be having Christmas dinner courtesy of the Salvation Army, Saint Vincent de Paul, or other charities, the banksters on Wall Street will be enjoying their usual multi-million dollar bonuses in palatial splendor. Despite fraudulent foreclosures leaving thousands homeless, financial institutions known to cook their books beyond any comprehension of actual values, bankruptcies and scandals everywhere in a collapsing economy where industries have vanished on a wholesale basis, the fat cats continue to party hearty amid the millions of unemployed and desperate peons they have robbed.
 
Vladimir Lenin said establishing a central bank issuing paper money is 90% of socialism. The Federal Reserve Bank, a private banking cartel (comprised largely of foreign banks beholding to the houses of Rothschild, Warburg, Windsor, and Rockefeller,) has devalued the dollar by over 95% since Congress chartered it on Christmas Eve in 1913. The 112th House’s Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee Chairman, Rep. Ron Paul, testifies to that often. Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve Bank Chairman, confessed “Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth,” in his 1996 essay, Gold and Economic Freedom, noting that “…one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism toward the gold standard.” As Lenin said, “The surest way to destroy a nation is to debauch its’ currency.”
 
Wall Street has many shrines honoring Mammon with greedy excesses, and Bernie Madoff is that religion’s Judas Goat sent away without being asked to testify in court lest he expose his brethren. He even declines to attend his son’s funeral, lest his throat be cut should he return to the city. America has been led down the Yellow Brick Road to find the Wizard of Wall Street is a world-class fraud. All hail Mammon… at your peril.
 
Airline travel now requires you to choose between dangerous radiation rendering your body virtually nude to prying eyes, or a TSA goon groping you intimately in a manner that would normally be grounds for sexual assault charges. So much for the right to be secure in our persons and papers, as “Gate-Rape” impunity in unreasonable search and seizure abuses demonstrates so publicly. Look for this practice to expand to boat docks, bus stations, roadblocks, public buildings, arenas, stadiums, and any other place they feel the need to humiliate and intimidate people with a show of force. After all, feds must make war on “terror”, keep us duly impressed of their vigilant might day and night.
 
Federal agencies afford us all the rights Colonel Sanders grants chickens. That includes stealing our nest eggs and punishing parents whose children are becoming too obese for military induction, or reducing our population as they see profitable. Look for Obama’s “rationed” healthcare to be imposed regardless of courts or public outrage. Watch out for vaccines! Remember America’s leading corporatists rallying at the shrine of the giant owl Molech at Bohemian Grove? They sacrifice children there, perhaps in effigy, according to Alex Jones of InfoWars.com , who took photos of the fiery pagan worship.
 
It is all too obvious the cocky pirates holed up in the District of Criminals are not even pretending to be honest, representative, or accountable to anyone outside the Billionaires’ Club on Wall Street. They, like fancy Nancy Pelosi, laughingly thumb their noses at us when we raise our concerns or issues of constitutional authority. Democrat, Republican, Marxist or Fascist, it is all Socialism, theft by color of law. With “Eminent Domain” they can now seize anybody’s property for any reason where the local, state, or federal government finds it profitable to do so. Even when it gives your property to corporate cronies. The corporate empire knows no bounds, no moral compass in wielding the guns.
 
Government is nothing but a monopoly on extortion, the zenith of organized crime. Walter Burien has done great research on the true extent of government’s corporate heist with evidence at Cafr1.com showing government to be the majority stockholder in many major corporations via pension funds, etc. The government hides many assets from public view to claim poverty in the ever-growing lust for profit and power pursuing our wealth.
 
The Environmental Protection Agency even proposes taxing us on rainfall! Vampires with governing powers, like Vlad the Impaler, don’t know when to quit. They will drain us of our life blood, part out our carcasses, and say it was our fault! A big ugly stake must be driven through the blood-sucker’s demonic heart. If not, bankruptcies, foreclosures, unemployment, hunger, homelessness, blight, anxieties, fears, crime and violent civil unrest are sure to multiply in a lethal pox upon the land of the formerly free, once known as the home of the brave. The vampires only know to put more pressure on our resisting necks. Predators have no regard for struggling prey. Awake from your trance, sheeple!
 
Tired of playing a rigged game where the rules are constantly changed by deceits with no choices for you but to pay and obey? How much dignity and sustenance must you and your family lose before you see survival itself threatened? We are suffering a Marxist Revolution under a Marxist White House. As Lenin said, “Destroy the family, you destroy the country.” Wake up and smell the coffee! We’ve been robbed, raped, and ruined! Historically the next step in a Marxist Revolution is outright extermination of “useless eaters”, political opponents, dissidents, and especially faithful Christians.
 
“Possession is nine tenths of the law,” it is often said. Ron Paul’s Daily Paul on 10/18/2009 reported 38.1% of American wealth is held by 1% of the people, and just under 60% of the wealth held by the top 5%. The bottom 89% of the people held only 29.1% of the nation’s wealth. The disparity is growing at a faster rate. Just wait until you see what taxes, goods, and services will cost under Obama’s helm in 2011. You may be forced to live in a tent down by the railroad tracks. Me too!
 
The elitist trillionaires and billionaires own the Earth and they want us off their planet. You can find many quotes from these people where they openly advocate wholesale genocide. In the age of computerized automation, they don’t need billions of workers to service their needs. Our needs are not important, and we are simply to be discarded. A lot of our  “missing” persons are actually used, abused, even sacrificed for occult profits and pleasures. We are slaves, like the poor working class souls locked below decks while John Astor and his wealthy friends abandoned the sinking Titanic in the lifeboats. What are your chances?
 
The global elite, corporatists all, pay homage to Lucifer in his chapel at the United Nations building in New York. It is the Temple of Understanding maintained by the Lucis Trust set up by Luciferian Alice Bailey, a disciple of Helena Blavatsky. Even popes have visited this bastion of Freemasonry and stood before the black altar there. This is the only chapel in the UN headquarters, a dark reminder of the global leadership’s allegiance.
 
International Socialism was Lenin’s goal. He actually said “I don’t care what becomes of Russia. To hell with it. All this is only the road to a world revolution.” We have seen country after country fall to this insidious movement. Even Israel is socialist. We are now at the edge of the abyss. The hyped “War on Terror” is a war on us. Lenin declared “We need the real, nationwide terror which reinvigorates the country and through which the Great French Revolution achieved glory.” That was gory glory! Do you see that we, by stealth, are being driven to a violent end? Are police tasers enough “invigoration” for you?
 
Have you wondered why such discussions as this have been permitted on the internet? Do we have a peaceful intelligent means of regaining Truth, Justice, and Liberty for All in a nation under God? Where are we being led? It is time to remember the Prince of Peace, the Reason for the Season, and stand as a Christian soldier.The battle is joined! No king but Jesus! Live free or die trying, with Best Wishes for the New Year.

Scarcity Memes Rev Up?

December 14th, 2010 by

The Daily Bell

http://www.thedailybell.com/1599/Scarcity-Memes-Rev-Up.html

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 – by  Staff Report

The new hungry: College-educated, middle-class cope with food insecurity … vegetables and microwavable meals from her community food bank … Come Christmas dinner, Rolanda McCarty, a 36-year-old single mother, usually goes all out. Her table last year featured a rosemary-and-oil rubbed turkey and a sweet ham. She prepared fresh collard greens according to her grandmother's recipe. The dessert — a rich butter pound cake – was made from scratch. But after being laid off from her technical recruiting job in January because of the struggling economy, there will be no fancy holiday feast, no family members pouring into her downsized one-bedroom apartment. She will rely on what she has: canned vegetables and microwavable meals from her community food bank. – New York Times

Dominant Social Theme: There is not enough of anything to go around. Be careful.

Free-Market Analysis: We continue to track scarcity memes. Our position has evolved along with the failure of global warming. For over a year we have maintained that its failure would make it much harder to promote food and water scarcity themes that the power elite had evidently and obviously planned to hype. The article excerpted above in the New York Times (a primary elite mouthpiece) also makes the point that "food insecurity" (more dreadful buzz words) is now afflicting the "college educated." This is a new phenomenon the Times points out, as if this makes the possibility of starvation even more dreadful – that one can do it with a doctorate.

We are not surprised at the growing ubiquity of such stories. These fear-based memes go back decades, but they have recently been ramped up in our estimation. These scarcity memes, in fact, are a bald war on the middle class, designed to make them more malleable. (That does not mean, by the way, that there are no food shortages; only that these shortages in our view may be manipulated, at least in part, as well …)

As the Swiss elves were composing this article, a feedbacker sent us a link pointing out a new water-promotion. The water-scarcity meme is one you would think the elite would abandon, given the difficulty in establishing global warming. In fact, not only are there more water-scarcity predictions these days, they partake of "climate change" as if it were unquestioned.

This only confirms our perception that these promotions are planned well in advance, and that they are quite broadly based and somewhat uncontrollable once they get going. This is why the elite cannot turn around the global warming meme. They can change the name of the promotion to something like "climate disruption" but the actual mechanics of the promotion are so deeply embedded in the larger society – think tanks, academia and media – that removing it (or starting over with something else) is well-nigh impossible. Here is an excerpt from the water scarcity article-link that we were sent:

US southwest could see 60-year drought: Study … A worst-case scenario devised by US researchers shows that the American southwest could experience a 60-year stretch of heat and drought unseen since the 12th century. Researchers at the University of Arizona examined studies of temperature changes and droughts in the region over the past 1,200 years and used them to project future climate models in the hope that water resource managers could use the information to plan ahead. An examination of the past, through human-kept records but also via rings in the cores of trees that can show periods of wetness or drought, showed that dry spells of earlier centuries were much worse than any we have seen in modern times. – Agence France-Press

You can see, dear reader, how heat and drought are prominently mentioned in this "study." But this sort of article is only one of many. And there are plenty of reports about food shortages as well. We predicted reports about "food insecurity" would not diminish just because of global warming's diminished credibility. Like the walking dead, these promotions lurch forwards.

Here's an except from an article we wrote a while back called "Failure of the Famine Meme" … "There are plenty of people who don't and never will believe in organized fear-based promotions orchestrated by a shadowy, familial power elite. But … one can actually trace not only the rise of these fear-based promotions, but also the difficulties that the power elite is having in maintaining current promotions and building on them with promotions that are expanding or in-the-works. It is the putative failure of the global warming meme – the pivot point of many power elite promotions – that in our view is bollixing up a number of other promotions as well."

It is actually enough to give one whiplash, and in a sense we believe it is supposed to. The World War II generation – Depression babies – have spent their whole lives anticipating disaster and trying to secure themselves from it. The US Baby Boomers, however, knew nothing but plenty. Central banking economies – as we have written before – produce a kind of Dreamtime that can go on for generations and in this case the post-war Dreamtime lasted until the middle of the first decade of the 2000s. Of course, Baby Boomers were never informed of their plight. Instead faux-economists like John Kenneth Galbraith deplored the apparent prosperity. Here is an abridged excerpt from Galbraith's 1960's bestseller, the Affluent Society:

Labour, Leisure and the New Class

As productivity increases, the marginal utility of production decreases and, so long as leisure returns a positive marginal utility and work a negative or lesser marginal utility, there will be a tendency for society to work less. This can manifest in one or more of three distinct ways:

Everybody may work fewer hours,

Everybody may work less intensely, or

Fewer people may work.

This process has long been underway. Society's past productivity gains have mostly been manifested in forms (1) and, to a lesser extent, (2). In 1850 the average American worker worked a 70-hour week, a hundred years later it was only 40 hours … Work has to some extent become less intense and unpleasant, although again there has been a strong resistance to the making of work more pleasant as a tangible goal — rather, these improvements have been made indirectly by health and safety conditions, through automation of particularly unpleasant tasks, and so on …

The rise of what could be called the New Class, of workers who engage in enjoyable and fulfilling work, is one of the most significant trends of the affluent society. It thinks and acts like a class, indoctrinating its young from the earliest age of the paramount importance of finding an occupation which will be satisfying — which "will involve not toil but enjoyment." The children of members of the class usually remain within the class one way or another, and when they do not it is regarded as a tragedy.

The New Class is not exclusive and entrance is perfectly feasible. The primary criterion is education. The movement of an ever greater proportion of society into the New Class is a very beneficial effect of economic development, and the further continuation and acceleration of this trend would make a laudable societal goal. The main means by which this might be achieved would, of course, be a heavily increased investment in education. Membership of the New Class affords the opportunity to spend one's working life in relative comfort, engaged in tasks that one finds interesting and challenging. It is reasonable to suppose that everybody would like such an opportunity … Whatever the next challenge is, we can be confident that the most effective way to prepare for it is to continue to invest munificently in education at all levels.

Galbraith's maleficent musings are already being forgotten, but the above excerpt provides a flavor. Contrast him to the patient and modest Ludwig von Mises; Von Mises spent his life warning about the great evil of central banking. It is why von Mises is read today. Galbraith's writings meanwhile crumble into dust. With great eloquence and even greater wit, Galbraith spewed his bile for decades, almost always purchased rabidly by the middle class he despised. His most heinous act lay in the duplicity of promoting 20th century central-banking Dreamtime as if it were real: As if the "prosperity" he so decried were anything other than a monetary manipulation of his colleagues and peers.

It was all a promotion; one designed to come tumbling down in the end. Like court jesters, the Galbraiths of the world were trotted out in the 20th century to voice eloquent disapprovals of central banking hyper-capitalism without ever mentioning the mechanism. The 20th century economy, it was said, was so prosperous because so many were educated and because so many had excess cash. Where the cash was coming from was never explained. No, the ability of central banks to print money from nothing was never mentioned, not in a million articles by a thousand major money magazines over a century. Discussions of the "motor" of 20th century prosperity was out of bounds.

It was a set up, and a vicious one. Those young people who lived in the 20th century were made to feel terribly guilty about their "affluence." So many, badly educated on purpose, fell victims to "isms" – socialism, communism and above all environmentalism. It turns out, in fact, that environmentalism was to be the key to unlocking global governance. The phony promotion of global warming snapped shut like a trap, producing the verdict that carbon-dioxide would have to be controlled and that "market mechanisms" would do the trick. The idea was to build, basically, a carbon currency that would fund a kind of total state control of the individual's consumption of energy and therefore his or her every action.

But for the Internet it probably would have worked. Yes, in our view, the Internet was a terrible mistake. Like the Gutenberg press before it, it simply wasn't planned. And now its truth-telling has exposed so much about these serial, elite promotions and their end-goal: evidently and obviously some sort of New World Order. Tattered and bleeding, these elite promotions lurch like the living dead toward global governance.

Conclusion: In fact, we think the scarcity promotions like the ones mentioned above are damaged – perhaps beyond repair. More and more people (including Baby Boomers) begin to understand their fears and the real reasons for them. Of course, Galbraith is dead, so we will never know in what way he would have responded to what has taken place, or the end of his "affluent society." Somehow, we are sure, he would have found a way to blame average people. His departure has spared us more honeyed poison.

 

 

 

Let’s get serious and Organized!

Let’s get serious and Organized

By James P. Harvey

Everyday I learn more, and everyday the depression deepens. This has been going on for seven years, so consider this article a plea for help.

To obtain my condition, all one has to do is research the many ways that society has been manipulated into accepting their loss of freedom, and not just in America, but world wide.

The one thing that has affected me the most is witnessing the huge numbers of American’s who still support our Government, and refuse to even consider learning what has been going on for so many years.

At times, I wonder if they have subconsciously picked up on all of this tyranny and approve of it, and at other times I have to wonder if they just don’t give a damn, because they have no interest in anything but being entertained.

Regardless, the fact is that the internet patriot community is a very small minority in America, and we are getting closer every day to losing it as a means of communication.

I am convinced that censorship and or arrest are in our near future. Even that statement will convince many people that I am some kind of nut case, and they won’t believe a word I write or say.

Since I am really addressing my peers in this article, nothing else needs be said on the above, but there is a hell of a lot of organizing that needs to be done among us if you agree with what I have just implied above.

Assuming you are as aware as I that we are done for when the net goes down, and the only thing left will be death by cop, or surrender, I hope it is dawning on you that we need to concentrate our educating efforts on all forms of law enforcement. From the secret police, State, local, federal, and all forms of military, we need to consolidate the efforts of our very best writers to convince the enforcers that

WE ARE WHAT THEY ARE SWORN TO PROTECT.

It is our efforts and our cause that will save America as a free society, by returning to a republic of fifty independent sovereign States, and all law enforcement owes their loyalty to that cause over their loyalty to any and all things, be they foreign or domestic.

For a local swat teem to invade our homes, kill us because we resist such tyranny, then confiscate our personal possessions, while we have been working our selves to death to save this country, is a travesty I cannot elucidate, and I am convinced that will happen very soon.

The personal address of every person in all forms of law enforcement needs to be obtained and letters explaining the situation sent to them. The efforts of Oath Keepers needs to be our total concentration before the shit hits the fan, because our so called voting citizens are not going to help cleanup the mess that’s left behind.

To all of you that have family in law enforcement, it is your duty to convince them to explore this subject, and together you should read Oath Keepers and discuss just where their loyalty is.

IS IT TO THEIR PAY-CHECK, IS IT TO THE PROPAGANDA IN THEIR EDUCATION, OR IS IT TO THE PRINCIPALS OF FREEDOM?

http://oath-keepers.blogspot.com/2009/03/oath-keepers-declaration-of-orders-we.html

http://oathkeepers.org/oath/

Folks I’m uneducated, but not stupid, so I’m more than aware that this is not a cure-all, and the Constitution needs much work done on it by the giants among us who are loyal to the principals of freedom, and equally astute in the ways of the world, but if our military, and law enforcement turn on us, who will run up the flag tomorrow? Who will carry on the battle for a free society, who will remember those of us who died trying to save their sorry ass?

It is no coincidence that this is all coming down on an over the hill generation, a give a shit younger generation, and millions of immigrants’ with no sense of loyalty to the principals of freedom so many have died for. The bankers have demonstrated their patience very well.

One more thing that gripes my old butt is the massive hero worship most American’s are infected with, while the powers that be have been sending them to their death for hundreds of years. When is this Nation going to wake up to the fact that,

WAR IS A GOD-DAMNED RACKET”?

And the dead heros were deluded!

Law & Our Democracy – Minus  Unity

http://www.thedailybell.com/1589/Tibor-Machan-Law-Our-Democracy.html

 

by Dr. Tibor Machan

 

Dr. Tibor Machan

One clear thing about the WikiLeaks affair is that outfits like The New York Times are showing their hypocrisy by failing to vigorously defend WikiLeaks' Julian Assange's actions. Wasn't it The Times that published Daniel Ellsberg's stolen Pentagon Papers and insisted that this was a valid exercise of its First Amendment Rights and that Ellsberg was a hero? And sure, there is a distinction between taking the papers and publishing them but it seems to me rather cowardly to hide behind that.

 

But the more serious and general issue is whether laws enacted in a kind of corrupted democracy such as the United States of America are actually morally binding on the citizenry. A good clue comes from the U.S. Supreme Court: "The very purpose of the Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials, and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the Courts. One's right to life, liberty and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to a vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." [U. S. Supreme Court in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943)] 

 

Sadly, this purpose has since been completely abandoned by that same court, most recently when it basically abolished the Fifth Amendment's protection of the right to private property in the July 2005 ruling in City of New London, CT v. Kelo. Once democracy has become so bloated in its reach that no principles are safe from the mob, why exactly should citizens follow so called laws made democratically? They aren't really laws by then but merely rules laid down by those who have nearly unlimited power.

 

When as a 14 year old I lived in Budapest under the rule of the "democratic republic" of Hungary – which was but a ruse disguising sheer Soviet style power – my family repeatedly violated "the law," which is to say we defied the rules the communist – in fact, fascist – regime tried to impose on us all. We hid fugitives from Hungarian prisons and helped them escape to the West. We smuggled merchandise into Hungary with the help of athletes who were permitted to travel abroad (so as to show off how great communist athletes are). And most importantly I myself joined a group of adults who chose to violate the "law" that made it criminal to leave the country for nearly anyone not part of or favored by the ruling elite. 

 

We made it across the border, after an arduous trip from the capitol to the Western border where border guards had been paid off by American agents so they wouldn't stand too firmly in the way of those trying to escape. All of this was "illegal." And no one in our group had the slightest compunction about our "illegal" conduct but felt enormous relief and even pride upon completing our journey. So, yes, we violated so called laws which weren't anything more than the rules of a tyrannical regime. And throughout human history and around the globe back then and even now, thousands are routinely engaged in this kind of illegal conduct. And they darned well have every basic right to do so and those championing obedience of the law in these kinds of cases are full of it.

 

But, you say, America is a democracy and its laws are indeed binding on all of its citizens. No, that is wrong, since this democracy is now way out of control; it has repeatedly overstepped the limitations of a valid constitution. America is now a vastly illiberal democracy, one in which the majority and those allegedly representing it are perpetrating innumerable tyrannical measures, imposing rules that have no business being part of a free country. Just consider the policies vis-a-vis the consumption of "illicit" drugs! 

 

How dare these people impose their idea of "illicit" on anyone else? Who are they, anyway? And what about the innumerable petty tyrannies of government regulations – issuing completely unjustly from federal, state, county, to municipal rulers? All these are forms of prior restraint, imposing penalties, at times jail sentences, on people who have no committed any violations of any rights but merely are deemed by bureaucrats and their bosses, politicians, capable of doing so! How is that for justice – penalizing people because they might become criminals?  That policy would have us all in prison.

 

No, I am not impressed at all by the claim that people are violating "the law" when that law happens to be grossly unjust, enacted in violation of the basic law of the land. Obedience, compliance, is only warranted because it will serve to avoid prosecution and incarceration. 

 

No one is obliged to be suicidal in his or her comportment toward a government that is either out and out totalitarian or only a democratic, mostly petty, tyranny. With governments like that citizens are only obliged to be prudent and crafty, except when it comes to valid provisions of the criminal law.

 

by George Massey: Accurately described and well stated!

 

By James Harvey: Superb Introduction to the idiocy of Democracy without a United Commitment to Freedom from Tyranny!

 

Olddog’s Commentary

 

In all of human history there is no more putrid ideology than for a Nation’s people to support a tyrannical government. Every human being has a moral duty to resist tyrannical governance, and those cowardly immoral scumbags that don’t, do not have the right to demand protection from those that do.

When this unfortunate condition exist in a Nation there is only one possible solution and that is for each ideology to separate from each other, simply because it fuels hatred to force them to share the same ideology. Make no mistake about it, socialist, communist, fascist, communitarians are my mortal enemies and there will never be any unity between us. I will fight them until my last breath, and never share my productivity with them. To me, they are the lowest form of humanity.

There is ample evidence that they feel the same way about me, so why should we share the same real estate, and government?

This condition is insane, and will eventually result in the death of millions of people who share this continent, as more and more people reach their limit of endurance. We have nothing to look forward to in America than devastating agony of unprecedented proportions.

Is this what sane people do, when the solution is so obvious? Do you want to see your loved ones murdered, and lose all that you have worked your whole life for? To live in fear for your life every day is not what sane people do when there is such an easy solution.

They may go their own way with my blessing, as long as I can go mine.

If their ideology works, LET THEM PROVE IT! BUT DON’T EXPECT ME TO HELP!

Thank you Dr. Machan for your excellent article, but I fear obedient compliance is fast becoming an un-acceptable option.

Carbon Marts Launch Around the World (Bye Bye Dollar)

Carbon Marts Launch Around the World

Thursday, December 09, 2010 – by  Staff Report

 

World Bank chief to launch carbon market fund … World Bank President Robert Zoellick is set to launch a new multi-million dollar fund in Mexico on Wednesday to help emerging market countries set up their own carbon markets, the bank said on Tuesday. While the list of participating countries is still being finalized, they are expected to include China, Mexico, Chile and Indonesia. Zoellick will launch the fund in Cancun on Wednesday where countries are involved in global climate negotiations to toughen existing pledges to cut carbon emissions. – Reuters

Dominant Social Theme: We, the deciders, need to help countries combat global warming as much as possible.

Free-Market Analysis: Colonialism is alive and well. The World Bank is to encourage carbon trading in developing countries. Too bad. This will make it even harder for developing nations to grow up; and the ramifications are simple. It means more sickness, more starvation, more deprivation. The Anglo-American power elite has learned through harsh experience that slavery does not pay in the modern era – or not open slavery anyway. Thus carbon trading (to alleviate non-existent global warming) is used to cement yet more intergenerational servitude. Africa is not to escape Western-induced poverty any time soon.

What do we have against carbon markets? The same thing you should have, dear reader. They are nothing more than an elaborate plot to increase the Anglosphere's ability to suck funds from the world's staggering middle class and poor while increasing control over energy usage.

Carbon markets in fact are designed to distribute the ability of industry to pollute – and thus benefit large "polluters" at the expense of the small. To begin with, carbon (pollution) credits are issued to industrial players. Since the credits are worth what the market prices them at, industry has an incentive to try to pollute as little as possible because then a given company can go on the market and sell the remaining carbon credits for a profit. Alternatively, a company that is polluting too much must go into the market and buy credits. This is a kind of private-market fine.

But what if the "pollution" is an entirely made-up phenomenon? This is, unfortunately, the case with "carbon" – carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is among the most necessary gases on the planet. The theory behind carbon pollution is that carbon dioxide "traps" greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and thus causes global warming. But in fact water vapor is responsible for most of the trapping effect and carbon dioxide for perhaps three-to-five percent. Proponents of global warming will explain that it is this three-to-five percent that is critical. But as we have already learned, global warmists will say almost anything.

The rhetorical nomenclature has been ever changing. We are now to use the phrase "climate change" or perhaps "climate catastrophe" – one cannot keep up. But the main issue is that global warming is a phony, fear-based promotion based on manipulation of data. The weather stations from where the data was gathered were often chosen or even placed in the warmest possible places. The data itself was "cooked" so as to show a predetermined conclusion. Can you possibly envision governments or NGOs cooking their books dear reader?

UN white papers consisted of outright lies, including the prediction that the Himalayas were melting away. This "cite" was later proven spurious, taken erroneously from an article and misinterpreted. The North Pole is not melting away either and the South Pole is apparently becoming more frozen. There is a good deal of speculation now that the world is entering another mini-ice age. Of course what finally unraveled the scam was the release of emails showing that a small group of scientists had actively manipulated data over a period of years. The scientists had suppressed data and articles that were contrary to the "theory" of global warming while ensuring that articles that supposedly established global warming were prominently published in scientific journals they either controlled or created.

Global warming has been thoroughly discredited. Its theoretical underpinnings have proven untrue. It's nothing but a fundamental promotion of the Anglosphere – which uses such fear-based promotions in its attempts to frighten people (especially in the West) into giving up wealth and authority to elite, global institutions like the UN and WHO.

There are in fact a number of promotional threads that the Western power elite is trying to weave together in the greenhouse promotion. There are electric cars, carbon markets, a larger environmental promotion (including green politics) and of course "smart grid." The end result would seem to be an environment where everything (including travel) is somehow controlled and metered. This fits into the Anglosphere's larger goal of one-world governance. The World Bank, as a prime facility of the Anglosphere, has now been tapped to move the promotion forward – as it has been stymied elsewhere.

One can see the muzzy outlines of an Orwellian future in this sort of design. One's entire life could be easily tracked. Each different utility presumably could be logged – from the coffee-percolator in the morning to the use of an oven in the evening. We can easily see how carbon trading fits into this scheme. Eventually, carbon trading would trickle down from the large marts; what was industrial would become personal. People no doubt would end up with their own carbon credits, ones they would have to buy or sell depending on whether they had exceeded their carbon usage within a given time frame. This would not be all of course. Eventually, civil and criminal penalties would be brought to bear on carbon "abusers." Those responsible for too much carbon dioxide could go to jail.

It is perfectly possible within this context, by the way, for one's own breathing to play a role in carbon-dioxide production. If it could be established, for instance, that a heavy person produced more carbon-dioxide than a lighter one, weight limits could be introduced whereby people over a certain poundage would be fined or have to pay some sort extra tax as a kind of penalty. Athletic events, where people breathed more heavily due to exertion, might have to pay some sort of surcharge. Construction firms, employing people out-of-doors in strenuous employment capacities might have to pay a surcharge as well.

At every opportunity, Western societies have decried slavery in modern times and postured against it. The irony is of course that many in the West are now paying far more to the government than the annual 30 percent a serf tithed in the Middle Ages. Slavery is alive and well in our view. And the whole issue of carbon trading and carbon-dioxide-as-a-pollutant would seem to be slavery-by-another-name. What is being prepared for Western societies is a special kind of hell.

How does all this carbon-trading nonsense affect developing countries? Leaving aside any personal carbon limits to be put in place at some point, carbon trading must eventually add entrepreneurial costs. A large company can afford an overage but a small company likely cannot. Carbon trading in Africa will hurt small businesses, create more corruption and give advantages to the largest players, businesses that inevitably have Western interests. The World Bank has no business helping fund carbon marts in the developing world. Questions come to mind: Who gave it that authority? Where is the science that the World Bank must cite before it begins to encourage impoverished countries to tax citizens' breathing?

Of course the rule of law, whatever that can be construed to be in Western society these days, means nothing to those at the World Bank or its elite managers. Impoverished countries are easier to influence than wealthier ones, so the scam of global warming is to be re-initiated there. Africa we believe is the essential target. The Anglosphere wants to blow up Africa just they way it has blown up South America, Europe and (sooner or later) China. There are already plans on the books for an African Central bank and an active "African Union" to mimic the horror show now taking place in Europe. You can see our previous articles here:

Kenya – New World Building Block

Elite Eye on Africa

African Union Plans Spaceflight

Conclusion: The elite is currently failing in their attempts to build an over-arching greenhouse gas economy in the West; and the UN meetings now taking place in Cancun, Mexico will bring modest or little relief – no matter how they are "spun." The strategy is shifting from grand UN treaties to building carbon economies from the ground up in individual countries. Certainly, the developing world is a tempting target in this regard, especially with the recent closure of the only carbon-trading exchange in the US. The powers-that-be obviously hope the helpless South will prove more easily manipulated. By building trading environments in impoverished countries, the elite can encourage economic involvement to a point where special interests may take over. The poor suffer first, as always.
