U. N. Agreement Should Have All Gun Owners Up In Arms

OP/ED Larry Bell

It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations does not approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

 

Have no doubt that this plan is very real, with strong Obama administration support. In January 2010, the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to push for Senate ratification.

Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

More from contributor Larry Bell

Although professing to support the Second Amendment during her presidential election bid, Hillary Clinton is not generally known as a gun rights enthusiast. She has been a long-time activist for federal firearms licensing and registration, and a vigorous opponent of state Right-to-Carry laws. As a New York senator, she ranked among the National Rifle Association’s worst “F”-rated gun banners who voted to support the sort of gunpoint disarmament that marked New Orleans’ rogue police actions against law-abiding gun owners in the anarchistic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

President Obama’s record on citizen gun rights does not reflect much advocacy either. Consider for example his appointment of anti-gun rights former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels as an alternate U.S. representative to the U.N., and his choice of Andrew Traver who has worked to terminate civilian ownership of so-called “assault rifles” (another prejudicially meaningless gun term) to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Then, in a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama administration quietly banned the re-importation and sale of 850,000 collectable antique U.S.-manufactured M1 Garand and Carbine rifles that were left in South Korea following the Korean War. Developed in the 1930s, the venerable M1 Garand carried the U.S. through World War II, seeing action in every major battle.

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama was an aggressive advocate for expanding gun control laws, and even voted against legislation giving gun owners an affirmative defense when they use firearms to defend themselves and their families against home invaders and burglars. He also served on a 10-member board of directors of the radically activist anti-gun Joyce Foundation in Chicago during a period between 1998-2001when it contributed $18,326,183 in grants to anti-Second Amendment organizations.

If someone breaks into your home when you are there, which would you prefer to have close at hand: 1) a telephone to call 911, or 2) a loaded gun of respectable caliber? That is a pretty easy question for me to answer. I am a long-time NRA member, concealed firearms license holder and a regular weekly recreational pistol shooter. And while I do not ordinarily care to target anything that has a mother, will reluctantly make an exception should an urgent provocation arise. I also happen to enjoy the company of friends who hunt, as well as those, like myself, who share an abiding interest in American history and the firearms that influenced it.

There are many like me, and fewer of them would be alive today were it not for exercise of their gun rights. In fact, law-abiding citizens in America used guns in self-defense 2.5 million times during 1993 (about 6,850 times per day), and actually shot and killed 2 1/2 times as many criminals as police did (1,527 to 606). Those civilian self-defense shootings resulted in less than 1/5th as many incidents as police where an innocent person was mistakenly identified as a criminal (2% versus 11%).

Just how effectively have gun bans worked to make citizens safer in other countries? Take the number of home break-ins while residents are present as an indication. In Canada and Britain, both with tough gun-control laws, nearly half of all burglaries occur when residents are present. But in the U.S. where many households are armed, only about 13% happen when someone is home.

Recognizing clear statistical benefit evidence, 41 states now allow competent, law-abiding adults to carry permitted or permit-exempt concealed handguns. As a result, crime rates in those states have typically fallen at least 10% in the year following enactment.

So the majority in our Senate is smart enough to realize that the U.N.’s gun-grab agenda is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right idiotic—right? Let’s hope so, but not entirely count on it. While a few loyal Obama Democrats are truly “pro-gun”, many are loathe to vote against treaties that carry the president’s international prestige, causing him embarrassment.

Also, don’t forget that Senate confirmation of anti-gun Obama nominee Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Many within the few who voted against her did so only because of massive grassroots pressure from constituents who take their Constitutional protections very seriously.

Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to stick by our guns in demanding that all Constitutional rights be preserved. If not, we will surely lose both.

Surely, by now, all of my readers should know what I think about this kind of crap, but the urge to express my contempt for all politicians who engage in this kind of back-door legislation is more than I can bare. I sincerely hope that this does not come to pass in my lifetime, because I really don’t want to hurt some dumb-ass young cop. Shit like this should require the pukes responsible to initiate it, then I would have a clean conscience.

 

WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF CHINA

June 9th, 2011 by

 

WOW –  Linda Hunnicutt has done it again –  This Granny Warrior is armed and ready for battle! Where are the younger Americans who will join with her?   Most likely standing in line for the latest technological gadgets – or to try out for some reality or talent show,  or high on illicit drugs, OR JUST SITTING ON THEIR ASS WATCHING TV.

WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF CHINA

IF THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE DOESN'T BRING OUT THE FIGHT IN YOU THEN YOU ARE INDEED A NWO CITIZEN, a fluoride depleted human? brainwashed? dumbed down or just plain stupid, selfish and self centered with no care for your fellow human being or your own country. Our ancestors fought and died for us to be in a free country and I suspect they expected us to carry on their mission not just give the most beautiful country in the world away making it's citizens prisoners of the elite rulers.

What can we do about it? Write, call, visit your Representatives. Make them know you will not tolerate such crap in your state and country. It is time to put it to the wall, what ever is necessary to let them know the UN nor DC will not be allowed to give away or sell our country. They (congress and senate) have already sold most of our national parks to foreign countries mainly China.. as well as our infrastructure as in Toll Roads etc.. This crap has to cease and the ones that are already established destroyed.. thrown out.. erased.. the contracts canceled.

It is time for us to gather together in neighborhoods, form groups to visit these useless eaters in Washington and our State capitols. Time to stop their insane rule and inane banter which we accept as promises which will be carried out.. Time to face realism and see with clear eyes.. time to give up our self image of "liberal, understanding & caring " people.. We cannot win with the liberal mindset that has prevailed only because it is so much easier to accept it than to fight and tell the preachers of such garbage they are full of crap and a chicken crap bunch of spineless jellyfish…

If you are thinking hell it's only 50 sq miles, then stop and take a good look at San Francisco and China town.. that will be your back yard and it keeps expanding.. growing like a fungus..

THE CHINESE FUNGUS IS COMING TO YOUR PART OF TOWN…. BET ON IT IF ONE IS ALLOWED TO BE BUILT IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY WILL BE SPRINGING UP ALL OVER….

China Wants To Construct A 50 Square Mile Self-Sustaining City South Of Boise, Idaho

Tuesday, June 07, 2011 8:54

Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power.  So what is China going to do with all of that money?  One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up "special economic zones" inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination.  One of these "special economic zones" would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them.  China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a "technology zone" south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size.  The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre "self-sustaining city" that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned "self-sustaining city" in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers.  Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.

According to the Idaho Statesman, the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included.  It would be modeled after the "special economic zones" that currently exist in China.

Perhaps the most famous of these "special economic zones" is Shenzhen.  Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village.  Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.

If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these "special economic zones" pop up all over the United States.

So exactly who is "Sinomach"?

The following description of the company comes directly from the website of Sinomach….

With approval of the State Council, China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) was established in January 1997. SINO-MACH is a large scale, state-owned enterprise group under the supervision of the State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

As you can see, Sinomach is basically an arm of the Chinese government.

The borrower is always the servant of the lender, and now China is buying up America.

The reality is that Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho.  Sinomach is in discussions to develop "special economic zones" all over the United States.

Sinomach has recently dispatched delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania to explore the possibility of establishing "special economic zones" in those states.

Will such "self-contained communities" soon start appearing from coast to coast?

According to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 "foreign trade zones" across America.  These "foreign trade zones" will apparently be given "special U.S. customs treatment" and will be used to promote global free trade….

"The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America."

So what do our politicians think about all of this?

Most of them are greatly in favor of it.

"Idaho’s the last state that should say we don’t want to do business with Asia," Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said last year. "Asia’s where the money is."

So will all of this "foreign investment" really bring jobs back to the American people?

Perhaps a few, but the truth is that these "special economic zones" that the Chinese are setting up are designed to be self-contained communist Chinese communities.  Some Americans will likely be employed in these areas, but not nearly as many as our politicians would have you to believe.

In addition, these "special economic zones" represent a massive national security threat.  The communist Chinese could potentially be able to bring in and store massive amounts of military equipment virtually undetected.

In the days of the Cold War, we would have never dreamed of giving the Russians a 50 square mile city in the middle of Idaho.

But today we have become convinced that the communist Chinese want to be our great friends.

The following quote originally appeared in the Idaho Statesman, but has since apparently been taken down….

"The Chinese are looking for a beachhead in the United States," said Idaho Commerce Secretary Don Dietrich. "Idaho is ready to give them one."

Indeed.

If relations between the U.S. and China go south someday, we will deeply regret giving China so many open doors.

The truth is that you can never fully trust the communist Chinese.  Their top military officers talk about a coming conflict with the United States all the time.  China is extremely interested in North America.  In fact, the Chinese and the Mexicans have even been holding talks on military cooperation.

But even if you don't consider the communist Chinese to be a military threat, you should be deeply concerned about the economic implications of what is happening.

Today, tens of millions of Americans are wondering why the economy is so bad.

Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the fact that we have sent China thousands of our factories, millions of our jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth is a major contributing factor.

If you do not know the truth about how badly the Chinese economy is wiping the floor with the American economy then you need to read this article: "40 Signs The Chinese Economy Is Beating The Living Daylights Out Of The U.S. Economy".

Beautiful new infrastructure is going up all over China today, and meanwhile many of our once great manufacturing cities are turning into rotted-out war zones.

China would not be what they are today if we had insisted that they abandon the communist system and respect basic human rights before we ever opened up trade with them.

But that did not happen.  Instead we enthusiastically welcomed China into the WTO and we let the predatory Chinese system run wild.

In 2010, China had a "current account balance" of over 272 billion dollars, which was the largest in the world.

In 2010, the United States had a "current account balance" of negative 561 billion dollars.  According to the CIA world fact book, that put us in last place in the entire world. In fact, our negative current account balance was more than 9 times larger than anyone else in the world.  If you go check out this chart it will give you a really good idea of how nightmarish our trade situation has become.

The world is changing and nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Just ask the residents of Boise, Idaho – they are about to have a 50 square mile self-contained communist Chinese city plopped right into their back yard.

NOTE FOREIGN TRADE ZONES ARE CONSIDERED FOREIGN SOIL !

IF YOU DON'T CHANGE THIS NOW YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL BE LIVING IN A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY, FILTHY, POOR, HUNGRY AND DOMINATED BY THE ELITE, GROVELING JUST TO SURVIVE without even a weapon to defend themselves with.

.. A PRISONER IN WHAT ONCE WAS THEIR FOREFATHERS FREE NATION WHERE MEN AND WOMEN WERE RESPECTED who walked with their heads held high proud to be called anAMERICAN, AND HADDIGNITY AND THE GUTS, TO PRESERVE THEIR INDIVIDUALITY.

The Federal Reserve Cartel Freemasons and The House of Rothschild

June 8th, 2011 by

 

 

Part two of a four-part series

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25179                                                                                                   

by Dean Henderson

In 1789 Alexander Hamilton became the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.  Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons.  He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement.  George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Ethan Allen, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Brown and Roger Sherman were all Masons.

Roger Livingston helped Sherman and Franklin write the Declaration of Independence.  He gave George Washington his oaths of office while he was Grand Master of the New York Grand Lodge of Freemasons.  Washington himself was Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge.  Of the General Officers in the Revolutionary Army, thirty-three were Masons.  This was highly symbolic since 33rd Degree Masons become Illuminated. [1]

 

Populist founding fathers led by John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Thomas Paine- none of whom were Masons- wanted to completely severe ties with the British Crown, but were overruled by the Masonic faction led by Washington, Hamilton and Grand Master of the St. Andrews Lodge in Boston General Joseph Warren, who wanted to “defy Parliament but remain loyal to the Crown”.  St. Andrews Lodge was the hub of New World Masonry and began issuing Knights Templar Degrees in 1769. [2] 

 

All US Masonic lodges are to this day warranted by the British Crown, whom they serve as a global intelligence and counterrevolutionary subversion network.  Their most recent initiative is the Masonic Child Identification Program (CHIP). According to Wikipedia, the CHIP programs allow parents the opportunity to create a kit of identifying materials for their child, free of charge. The kit contains a fingerprint card, a physical description, a video, computer disk, or DVD of the child, a dental imprint, and a DNA sample.

 

The First Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia in 1774 under the Presidency of Peyton Randolph, who succeeded Washington as Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge.  The Second Continental Congress convened in 1775 under the Presidency of Freemason John Hancock.  Peyton’s brother William succeeded him as Virginia Lodge Grand Master and became the leading proponent of centralization and federalism at the First Constitutional Convention in 1787.  The federalism at the heart of the US Constitution is identical to the federalism laid out in the Freemason’s Anderson’s Constitutions of 1723.  William Randolph became the nation’s first Attorney General and Secretary of State under George Washington.  His family returned to England loyal to the Crown.  John Marshall, the nation’s first Supreme Court Justice, was also a Mason. [3] 

 

When Benjamin Franklin journeyed to France to seek financial help for American revolutionaries, his meetings took place at Rothschild banks.  He brokered arms sales via German Mason Baron von Steuben.  His Committees of Correspondence operated through Freemason channels and paralleled a British spy network.  In 1776 Franklin became de factoAmbassador to France.  In 1779 he became Grand Master of the French Neuf Soeurs (Nine Sisters) Lodge, to which John Paul Jones and Voltaire belonged.  Franklin was also a member of the more secretive Royal Lodge of Commanders of the Temple West of Carcasonne, whose members included Frederick Prince of Whales.  While Franklin preached temperance in the US, he cavorted wildly with his Lodge brothers in Europe.  Franklin served as Postmaster General from the 1750’s to 1775 – a role traditionally relegated to British spies. [4]

 

With Rothschild financing Alexander Hamilton founded two New York banks, including Bank of New York. [5]  He died in a gun battle with Aaron Burr, who founded Bank of Manhattan with Kuhn Loeb financing.  Hamilton exemplified the contempt which the Eight Families hold towards common people, once stating, “All communities divide themselves into the few and the many.  The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people…The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right.  Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government.  They will check the unsteadiness of the second.”[6]

 

Hamilton was only the first in a series of Eight Families cronies to hold the key position of Treasury Secretary.  In recent times Kennedy Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon came from Dillon Read (now part of UBS Warburg).  Nixon Treasury Secretaries David Kennedy and William Simon came from Continental Illinois Bank (now part of Bank of America) and Salomon Brothers (now part of Citigroup), respectively.  Carter Treasury Secretary Michael Blumenthal came from Goldman Sachs, Reagan Treasury Secretary Donald Regan came from Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), Bush Sr. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady came from Dillon Read (UBS Warburg) and both Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Bush Jr. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came from Goldman Sachs.  Obama Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner worked at Kissinger Associates and the New York Fed.

 

Thomas Jefferson argued that the United States needed a publicly-owned central bank so that European monarchs and aristocrats could not use the printing of money to control the affairs of the new nation.  Jefferson extolled, “A country which expects to remain ignorant and free…expects that which has never been and that which will never be.  There is scarcely a King in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh – get first all the people’s money, then all their lands and then make them and their children servants forever…banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.  Already they have raised up a money aristocracy.”  Jefferson watched as the Euro-banking conspiracy to control the United States unfolded, weighing in, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day, but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”. [7[

 

But the Rothschild-sponsored Hamilton’s arguments for a private US central bank carried the day.  In 1791 the Bank of the United States (BUS) was founded, with the Rothschilds as main owners.  The bank’s charter was to run out in 1811.  Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank.  The debate was postponed as the nation was plunged by the Euro-bankers into the War of 1812.  Amidst a climate of fear and economic hardship, Hamilton’s bank got its charter renewed in 1816.

 

Old Hickory, Honest Abe & Camelot

 

In 1828 Andrew Jackson took a run at the US Presidency.  Throughout his campaign he railed against the international bankers who controlled the BUS.  Jackson ranted, “You are a den of vipers.  I intend to expose you and by Eternal God I will rout you out.  If the people understood the rank injustices of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.”

 

Jackson won the election and revoked the bank’s charter stating, “The Act seems to be predicated on an erroneous idea that the present shareholders have a prescriptive right to not only the favor, but the bounty of the government…for their benefit does this Act exclude the whole American people from competition in the purchase of this monopoly.  Present stockholders and those inheriting their rights as successors be established a privileged order, clothed both with great political power and enjoying immense pecuniary advantages from their connection with government.  Should its influence be concentrated under the operation of such an Act as this, in the hands of a self-elected directory whose interests are identified with those of the foreign stockholders, will there not be cause to tremble for the independence of our country in war…controlling our currency, receiving our public monies and holding thousands of our citizens independence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy.  It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government for selfish purposes…to make the rich richer and more powerful.  Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by acts of Congress.  I have done my duty to this country.”[8]

 

Populism prevailed and Jackson was re-elected.  In 1835 he was the target of an assassination attempt.  The gunman was Richard Lawrence, who confessed that he was, “in touch with the powers in Europe”. [9] 

 

Still, in 1836 Jackson refused to renew the BUS charter.  Under his watch the US national debt went to zero for the first and last time in our nation’s history.  This angered the international bankers, whose primary income is derived from interest payments on debt.  BUS President Nicholas Biddle cut off funding to the US government in 1842, plunging the US into a depression.  Biddle was an agent for the Paris-based Jacob Rothschild. [10]

 

The Mexican War was simultaneously sprung on Jackson.  A few years later the Civil War was unleashed, with London bankers backing the Union and French bankers backing the South. The Lehman family made a fortune smuggling arms to the south and cotton to the north.  By 1861 the US was $100 million in debt.  New President Abraham Lincoln snubbed the Euro-bankers again, issuing Lincoln Greenbacks to pay Union Army bills. 

 

The Rothschild-controlled Times of London wrote, “If that mischievous policy, which had its origins in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost.  It will pay off its debts and be without debt.  It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce.  It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world.  The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America.  That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” [11]

 

The Euro-banker-written Hazard Circular was exposed and circulated throughout the country by angry populists.  It stated, “The great debt that capitalists will see is made out of the war and must be used to control the valve of money.  To accomplish this government bonds must be used as a banking basis.  We are now awaiting Secretary of Treasury Salmon Chase to make that recommendation.  It will not allow Greenbacks to circulate as money as we cannot control that.  We control bonds and through them banking issues”.

 

The 1863 National Banking Act reinstated a private US central bank and Chase’s war bonds were issued.  Lincoln was re-elected the next year, vowing to repeal the act after he took his January 1865 oaths of office.  Before he could act, he was assassinated at the Ford Theatre by John Wilkes Booth.  Booth had major connections to the international bankers.  His granddaughter wrote This One Mad Act, which details Booth’s contact with “mysterious Europeans” just before the Lincoln assassination.

 

Following the Lincoln hit, Booth was whisked away by members of a secret society known as Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC).  KGC had close ties to the French Society of Seasons, which produced Karl Marx.  KGC had fomented much of the tension that caused the Civil War and President Lincoln had specifically targeted the group.  Booth was a KGC member and was connected through Confederate Secretary of State Judah Benjamin to the House of Rothschild.  Benjamin fled to England after the Civil War. [12]

 

Nearly a century after Lincoln was assassinated for issuing Greenbacks, President John F. Kennedy found himself in the Eight Families’ crosshairs.  Kennedy had announced a crackdown on off-shore tax havens and proposed increases in tax rates on large oil and mining companies.  He supported eliminating tax loopholes which benefit the super-rich.  His economic policies were publicly attacked by Fortune magazine, the Wall Street Journal and both David and Nelson Rockefeller.  Even Kennedy’s own Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, who came from the UBS Warburg-controlled Dillon Read investment bank, voiced opposition to the JFK proposals. [13]

 

Kennedy’s fate was sealed in June 1963 when he authorized the issuance of more than $4 billion in United States Notes by his Treasury Department in an attempt to circumvent the high interest rate usury of the private Federal Reserve international banker crowd.  The wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was conveniently gunned down by Jack Ruby before Ruby himself was shot, told author A. J. Weberman in 1994, “The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank.  Don’t underestimate that.  It’s wrong to blame it on Angleton and the CIA per se only.  This is only one finger on the same hand.  The people who supply the money are above the CIA”. [14]

 

Fueled by incoming President Lyndon Johnson’s immediate escalation of the Vietnam War, the US sank further into debt. Its citizens were terrorized into silence.  If they could kill the President they could kill anyone.

 

The House of Rothschild

 

The Dutch House of Orange founded the Bank of Amsterdam in 1609 as the world’s first central bank.  Prince William of Orange married into the English House of Windsor, taking King James II’s daughter Mary as his bride.  The Orange Order Brotherhood, which recently fomented Northern Ireland Protestant violence, put William III on the English throne where he ruled both Holland and Britain.  In 1694 William III teamed up with the UK aristocracy to launch the private Bank of England.

 

The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street- as the Bank of England is known- is surrounded by thirty foot walls.  Three floors beneath it the third largest stock of gold bullion in the world is stored. [15] 

 

The Rothschilds and their inbred Eight Families partners gradually came to control the Bank of England.  The daily London gold “fixing” occurred at the N. M. Rothschild Bank until 2004.  As Bank of England Deputy Governor George Blunden put it, “Fear is what makes the bank’s powers so acceptable.  The bank is able to exert its influence when people are dependent on us and fear losing their privileges or when they are frightened.”[16]

 

Mayer Amschel Rothschild sold the British government German Hessian mercenaries to fight against American Revolutionaries, diverting the proceeds to his brother Nathan in London, where N.M. (Nathan and Mayer) Rothschild & Sons was established.  Mayer was a serious student of Cabala and launched his fortune on money embezzled from William IX- royal administrator of the Hesse-Kassel region and a prominent Freemason.

 

Rothschild-controlled Barings bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades.  It financed the Louisiana Purchase.  When several states defaulted on its loans, Barings bribed Daniel Webster to make speeches stressing the virtues of loan repayment.  The states held their ground, so the House of Rothschild cut off the money spigot in 1842, plunging the US into a deep depression.  It was often said that the wealth of the Rothschilds depended on the bankruptcy of nations.  Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, “I care not who controls a nation’s political affairs, so long as I control her currency”.

 

War didn’t hurt the family fortune either.  The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French.  Nathan Rothschild made a huge financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, while also funding the Duke of Wellington’s peninsular campaign against Napoleon.  Both the Mexican War and the Civil War were goldmines for the family.

One Rothschild family biography mentions a London meeting where an “International Banking Syndicate” decided to pit the American North against the South as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy.  German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once stated, “The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War.  These bankers were afraid that the United States…would upset their financial domination over the world.  The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed.”  Rothschild biographer Derek Wilson says the family was the official European banker to the US government and strong supporters of the Bank of the United States. [17] 

 

Family biographer Niall Ferguson notes a “substantial and unexplained gap” in private Rothschild correspondence between 1854-1860.  He says all copies of outgoing letters written by the London Rothschilds during this Civil War period “were destroyed at the orders of successive partners”. [18]

 

French and British troops had, at the height of the Civil War, encircled the US.  The British sent 11,000 troops to Crown-controlled Canada, which gave safe harbor to Confederate agents.  France’s Napoleon III installed Austrian Hapsburg family member Archduke Maximilian as his puppet emperor in Mexico, where French troops massed on the Texas border.  Only an 11th-hour deployment of two Russian warship fleets by US ally Czar Alexander II in 1863 saved the United States from re-colonization. [19] 

 

That same year the Chicago Tribune blasted, “Belmont (August Belmont was a US Rothschild agent and had a Triple Crown horse race named in his honor) and the Rothschilds…who have been buying up Confederate war bonds.”

 

Salmon Rothschild said of a deceased President Lincoln, “He rejects all forms of compromise.  He has the appearance of a peasant and can only tell barroom stories.”  Baron Jacob Rothschild was equally flattering towards the US citizenry.  He once commented to US Minister to Belgium Henry Sanford on the over half a million Americans who died during the Civil War, “When your patient is desperately sick, you try desperate measures, even to bloodletting.”  Salmon and Jacob were merely carrying forth a family tradition.  A few generations earlier Mayer Amschel Rothschild bragged of his investment strategy, “When the streets of Paris are running in blood, I buy”. [20]

 

Mayer Rothschild’s sons were known as the Frankfurt Five.  The eldest – Amschel – ran the family's Frankfurt bank with his father, while Nathan ran London operations.  Youngest son Jacob set up shop in Paris, while Salomon ran the Vienna branch and Karl was off to Naples.  Author Frederick Morton estimates that by 1850 the Rothschilds were worth over $10 billion. [21]  Some researchers believe that their fortune today exceeds $100 trillion.

 

The Warburgs, Kuhn Loebs, Goldman Sachs, Schiffs and Rothschilds have intermarried into one big happy banking family.  The Warburg family- which controls Deutsche Bank and BNP tied up with the Rothschilds in 1814 in Hamburg, while Kuhn Loeb powerhouse Jacob Schiff shared quarters with Rothschilds in 1785.  Schiff immigrated to America in 1865.  He joined forces with Abraham Kuhn and married Solomon Loeb’s daughter.  Loeb and Kuhn married each others sisters and the Kuhn Loeb dynasty was consummated.  Felix Warburg married Jacob Schiff’s daughter.  Two Goldman daughters married two sons of the Sachs family, creating Goldman Sachs.  In 1806 Nathan Rothschild married the oldest daughter of Levi Barent Cohen, a leading financier in London. [22]  Thus, Merrill Lynch super-bull Abby Joseph Cohen and Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen are likely descended from Rothschilds.

 

Today the Rothschild’s control a far-flung financial empire, which includes majority stakes in most world central banks.  The Edmond de Rothschild clan owns the Banque Privee SA in Lugano, Switzerland and the Rothschild Bank AG of Zurich.  The family of Jacob Lord Rothschild owns the powerful Rothschild Italia in Milan.  They are founding members of the exclusive $10 trillion Club of the Isles – which controls corporate giants Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Barclays, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, BHP Billiton and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials. [23]

 

The Club of the Isles provides capital for George Soros’ Quantum Fund NV – which made substantial financial gains in 1998-99 following the collapse of currencies of Thailand, Indonesia and Russia.  Soros was a major shareholder at George W. Bush’s Harken Energy.  The Club of Isles is led by the Rothschilds and includes Queen Elizabeth II and other wealthy European aristocrats and Nobility.[24]

 

Perhaps the largest repository for Rothschild wealth today is Rothschilds Continuation Holdings AG – a secretive Swiss-based bank holding company.  By the late 1990s scions of the Rothschild global empire were Barons Guy and Elie de Rothschild in France and Lord Jacob and Sir Evelyn Rothschild in Britain. [25] 

 

Evelyn was chairman of the Economist and a director at DeBeers and IBM UK. 

 

Jacob backed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s California gubernatorial campaign.  He took control of Khodorkovsky’s YUKOS oil shares just before the Russian government arrested him.  In 2010 Jacob joined Rupert Murdoch in a shale oil extraction partnership in Israel through Genie Energy – a subsidiary of IDT Corporation. [26] 

 

Within months, Sarah Palin had hired former IDT executive Michael Glassner as her chief of staff. [27]  Is Palin the Rothschild choice in 2012?

THE GLOBAL CURRENCY WAR

June 8th, 2011 by

 

http://www.newswithviews.com/Ryter/jon328.htm

By Jon Christian Ryter
June 8, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

The Finance Ministers of 187 nations began meeting in Washington, DC on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 to discuss the growing concerns that the world is now in the grip of an "international currency war" initiated by China. According to the liberal British newspaper, The Guardian, China's economic policies started the "war" by manipulating its own currency to an unrealistic low. In a media interview at the end of September, Brazil's Finance Minister, Guido Mantega coined the phrase, "international currency war," after the central banks in Japan, South Korea, Switzerland and Taiwan reduced the value of their currencies to make the commodities manufactured in their countries more attractive to foreign buyers. Brazil is one of those nation's impacted by China's currency policies. It's currency is now overvalued, placing Brazil at a disadvantage in the world of global trade.

On Mon., Oct. 4 the Bank of Japan reinstated its zero interest rate policy and pledged to buy ¥5 trillion ($60 billion) of assets. Brazil responded by doubling a Brazilian tax on foreign investors (currency hedge funds like George Soros' Soros Fund Management and Quantum Fund which Soros used to nearly collapse the Bank of England) while cashing in on the declining value of the Euro, earning Soros and an undisclosed group of hedge fund operators in New York hundreds of billions of dollars betting against the Euro).

Soros, like Barack Obama and recently-resigned Obama Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel never lets a good crisis go to waste. It is important to note that currency manipulation—particularly by the Soros-led hedge funds—was one of the triggers that caused what we now know as the global financial crisis of 2008-09. In the pre-global economy days, the shock-waves of local or host-market currency crises were regional rather than global. As banking became more globalized, so too were the consequences of financial shocks waves which now have profound effects across the globe. The Soros run on the Euro actually triggered a decomposition of private capital flows from Europe into the emerging markets, threatening billions of dollars of debt invested by Europeans and Corporate America in the emerging economies in their frantic search for those elusive potential consumers of the 21st century from what is now a global pool of human capital created by 37 years of mistaken social progressive abortion policy. (For every "action" there's a reaction—and for every human folly there is a cost. The loss the Christian industrialized nations are paying for nearly four decades of abortion rights is the loss of our national identities and our national sense of well-being. Welcome to Utopia.)

The catastrophic financial crisis blamed on President George W. Bush was real. It just wasn't real here. It began in 2002 with a slowdown of capital direct investment by US investors in the emerging nations as more US investors, feeling a renewed sense of hope and patriotism about America, invested at home. According to the International Monetary Fund's April, 2009World Economic Outlook Report, the decomposition of private capital flows fueled the fire that created the financial crisis. International capital flow into the emerging economies dropped dramatically between 2007 and 2008—to the tune of about $530 billion, with most of the decline coming from Asia and Europe.

The subprime mortgage collapse in the United States—triggered specifically by hedge fund short sellers (who sold the bottom out of the mortgage industry because they were allowed, by the repeal of the 1934 Uptick Rule, to do so) and the Soros raid on the Euro, were largely responsible for the sudden illiquidity of banks in the industrial world. The illiquidity shock wave reverberated around the world. Central bankers feared a monetary collapse was inevitable if funds were not poured—not into the US and European economies but—into the economies of the emerging nations where financial illiquidity threatened to shatter the global banking infrastructure and cause a domino-collapse of the central banks of the world.

Both the United States and England raced to enact financial crisis bailouts. Both the elected political leaders of the United States and England were lied to by the central bankerswho planned, before one piece of legislation was even proposed, to hijack the bailout funds that American and British taxpayers were told would be used to buoy their local economies, to bolster the second and third world economies that actually threatened to collapse the world's monetary system—literally bankrupting the United States and Europe as it salvaged the economies of the emerging nations where 70% of the world's human capital resides. That human capital, which has nothing and needs everything, is the market upon which the princes of industry and barons of banking and business are pinning their hopes of a profitable 21st century—at the expense of the rest of us. (Can you say, "Thank you, Barack, Nancy and Harry"? ObamaChange, as America is quickly learning, has nothing to do with taking the "surplus" from the rich in the United States and giving that "surplus" to the poor in America. Rather, it is the redistribution of the national wealth of the United States to the third world—tomorrow's consumers of the invisible ultra rich whose names do not appear on the Forbes or Fortune lists of the world's wealthiest people.)

About a week or so before the world's Finance Ministers came to Washington on October 7, 2010, the Institute of International Finance which represents some of the largest banks in the world, urged the International Monetary Fund to take unilateral action after the Bank of Japan moved to lower its interest rates to 0.1% specifically to weaken the yen to in order to better compete with China's yuan. Social progressives, forgetting the lessons of German hyperinflation in the late 1920s and early 1930s, have suggested to the Obama Administration that they have one weapon they can use against China—the printing press. Simply print enough money to pay off America's debt to China with worthless money if China does not revalue the yuan.

Better yet is the measure enacted by a 348-79 vote in the House of Representatives on September 29 (just before the House recessed) that would allow the United States to impose trade sanctions against any nation that manipulates their currency to gain trade advantages. China's devaluation, and that of Japan, makes products manufactured in those two countries much cheaper in the United States and, conversely, makes US products searching for a customer in Japan or China, more expensive. The measure was sent to the Senate just before adjournment. The bill's fate is unknown since its unclear whether the Senate will enact the legislation in the lame duck session after the Nov. 2 elections. Democrats are telling their constituents that the sanctions bill, HR 2194 which amends theTariff Act of 1930 will return millions of jobs to the United States. Republicans realistically know that the sanctions bill, if enacted and signed into law, will add about 10% onto the cost of most Chinese products sold in US stores and will not impact job growth. On the heels of the House passing the measure, China said the legislation contravenes World Trade Organizationrules. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have refused to recognize China as a currency manipulator out of fear of retaliation from the country that bought most of America's debt until Obama's rush to destroy the US dollar.

The World Bank entered the money fray on Oct. 7, warning the G-20 nations against launching a global currency war with World Bank president Robert B. Zoellick vying for more international cooperation to stem what looks like a currency war as the Asian rim nations demand greater voting power on currency issues. "Today," Zoellick said, "we face currency tensions. Tensions can lead to trouble if not properly managed…If ever there was a time we should shouldn't turn our backs on international cooperation, it's now. History shows there is no future in 'beggar thy neighbor' policies."Zoellick alluded the international trade wars that broke out during the Great Depression and worsened the economic conditions throughout the industrialized world.

The international currency war began with China devaluing the renminbi (commonly referred to as the yuan) by about 40%, creating the biggest trade distortion in the global economy: America's trade deficit with China. Many currency experts believe that the dispute between the renminbi and the US dollar has such far-reaching consequences that it will impact the currencies of every industrialized nation in the world. That's why the debate at the 2011 G-20 will be focused on the need to engineer a currency accord like the Plaza Accord at the end of the Carter Years in 1980 where a basket of currencies was going to replace the dollar as the world's "currency of last resort," which led to a global devaluation of the US dollar.

French president Nicholas Sarkozy, who will host the 2011 G-20, has already suggested that the United States, the European Union and other unnamed nations should work with China to find a currency accord before the G-20 Conference next year. An attempt to lay out the framework for such an accord, proffered to China this week, was a nonstarter. The one-worlders want to introduce a new currency, issued by the World Bank to ultimately replace all 187 national currencies. China is slightly less ambitious. They want the renminbi (the yuan) to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

China simply is not interested in negotiating the issue. Zoellick noted that the time has come for resolving trade differences amicably. "There should be a common interest in trying to figure out how to manage this," he said. "Maybe the time has come. Sometimes when you have a moment like this, it's important to try to steer it in constructive direction." Zoellick noted that China has benefited greatly from its undervalued currency while other nations have suffered from it.to leave behind.

Anyway, you slice it, every known government has been under the dominion of those who control the currency, yet every Nation has followed their government to destruction. What in the hell is wrong with humanity, when they refuse to read the history of governments, and suffer the loss of freedom time after time?

It’s not like we’re confronted with a new problem that has never been heard of before folk’s, and the real kicker is, the stupid Nation’s go to war and kill each other, rather than the Bankers.

Mark my words, it’s happening again, and the Banker are laughing their ass off at our stupid obedience to the propaganda they spread.

Soon, you will be sending more of your children to die, and when America goes belly-up, those same children will be sent to herd you into detention camps, prior to your elimination.

History keeps repeating it-self, only this time we have a nappy headed Hitler that needs a teleprompter to give you thrills of Patriotism and Sacrifice. And, in spite of the internet revolution and the thousands of education sites, not one damn site is calling for the Bankers heads.

We should confiscate all of their assets and hang the bastards. There is NO peaceful way out of this cluster f#*k, because they control our military and most of our local law enforcement.

It’s time to poop, or get off the pot!

Lord, send us just ONE brave and erudite general for our cognitive dissonant’s to follow.

Regional War or World War?

The Elite, the 'Great Game' and World War III … The control of the US, and of global politics, by the wealthiest families of the planet is exercised in a powerful, profound and clandestine manner. This control began in Europe and has a continuity that can be traced back to the time when the bankers discovered it was more profitable to give loans to governments than to needy individuals. These banking families and their subservient beneficiaries have come to own most major businesses over the two centuries during which they have secretly and increasingly organised themselves as controllers of governments worldwide and as arbiters of war and peace. Unless we understand this we will be unable to understand the real reasons for the two world wars and the impending Third World War, a war that is almost certain to begin as a consequence of the US attempt to seize and control Central Asia. The only way out is for the US to back off – something the people of the US and the world want, but the elite does not. Mujahid Kamran/New Dawn/Global Research

Dominant Social Theme: The great game is afoot and may end in a global war and nuclear winter.

Free-Market Analysis: We are of two minds about this article. It is very well done and represents a substantial strand of thought that we share; what we do not share, however, are its conclusions. The idea – and we have written about this before – is that the Anglo-American power elite is involved in the "great game;" that they wish for world dominance but intend to achieve it by chasing raw materials and strategic, regional advantages in military terms.

We have a different perspective. For us, Anglo-American elites are after much more than this, and more directly. The old men of the City of London seek to rule the world; their interest has little to do with raw materials and much to do with control over unruly tribes and restive citizens.

As for positioning Western military resources in such a way as to intimidate Russia and China; we are more inclined to believe that there is no great need to intimidate either of these countries. Their leaders and elites may already be on board with the idea of one-world governance. It's mainly the tribes in Eurasia that the elites want to dominate. ThePashtuns, for instance, that the British elites have tried to slay at least twice (and are apparently failing again at doing so). Even the Pakistan Punjabis are not entirely under control.

Having said this, the article is remarkable for its resolute statements as to the way the world really works. Kamran is blunt in his descriptions. "The US is a country controlled through the privately owned Federal Reserve, which in turn is controlled by the handful of banking families that established it by deception in the first place."

That's about as precise a definition as you can make. But he gets even more specific. "The elite owns the media, banks, defense and oil industry. In his book Who's Who of the Elite Robert Gaylon Ross Sr. states: 'It is my opinion that they own the US military, NATO, the Secret Service, the CIA, the Supreme Court, and many of the lower courts. They appear to control, either directly or indirectly, most of the state, county, and local law enforcement agencies.'"

This is our perspective too, arrived at over years and decades – and with increasing astonishment. There's more, though: "The elite is intent on conquering the world through the use of the abilities of the people of the United States. It was as far back as 1774 that Amschel Mayer Rothschild stated at a gathering of the twelve richest men of Prussia in Frankfurt: 'Wars should be directed so that the nations on both sides should be further in our debt.' He further enunciated at the same meeting: 'Panics and financial depressions would ultimately result in World Government, a new order of one world government.'"

Exactly right. It's happening even now. Because these sociopolitical trends are so large and work relatively slowly, it is easy to lose track of them and to attribute them to coincidence and to bad luck. But, in fact, the world's financial system is not an evolutionary one at this point. A few control the many.

Kamran is right about think tanks as well. He writes, "The elite owns numerous 'think tanks' that work for expanding, consolidating and perpetuating its hold on the globe. The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, and many other similar organisations are all funded by the elite and work for it. These think tanks publish journals, such as Foreign Affairs, in which these imperialist and anti-mankind ideas are edified as publications, and then, if need be, expanded in the form of books that are given wide publicity."

The article points out that 80% of US electronic and print media is owned by only six large corporations, a consolidation that has occurred only in the past 20 years or so. "It is almost impossible for anyone who is acquainted with what is going on at the global level to watch, even for a few minutes, the distortions, lies and fabrications, incessantly pouring out of this media, a propaganda and brainwashing organ of the elite."

Karman gets it right about the ongoing genocides as well. "Once your picture is clear it is also easy to notice the criminal silence of the media on crimes being perpetrated against humanity at the behest of the elite. How many people know that the cancer rates in Fallujah, Iraq are higher than those in Hiroshima and Nagasaki because of the use of depleted uranium, and maybe other secret nuclear devices, by US forces? Fallujah was punished for its heroic resistance against the American forces."

He mentions something we've been meaning to introduce at DB, which is the immense contribution of Sigmund Freud's nephew Edward Bernays to elite plans. Bernays developed the technique of "engineering consent" and "pioneered the use of psychology and other social sciences to shape and form public opinion so that the public thought such manufactured opinions were their own."

The platform for Bernays was the Tavistock Institute, which today has a US$6 billion dollar endowment and "400 subsidiary organisations are under its control along with 3,000 think tanks, mostly in the USA. The Stanford Research Institute, the Hoover Institute, the Aspen Institute of Colorado, and many others, devoted to manipulation of US as well as global public opinion, are Tavistock offshoots. This helps explain why the US public, by and large, is so mesmerised as to be unable to see things clearly and to react."

Well done. Where we think the article off the rails, as we mentioned earlier, has to do with the "great game" in Eurasia. He writes: "In his infinitely arrogant book The Grand Chessboard, published in 1997, Zbigniew Brzezinski spelled out the philosophy behind the current US military eruption. 'Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland: Who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island: who commands the World-Island commands the world.'"

Brzezinski argues that "For America the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia… About 75 percent of the world's people live in Eurasia… Eurasia accounts for about 60 percent of the world's GNP and about three fourths of the world's known energy resources." And Kamran points out that, "It is not just the geostrategic location of this region – it is also its wealth, 'both in its enterprises and beneath its soil,' that holds such attraction for the elite whose greed for money, and lust for power, remain insatiable, as if there was a sickness afflicting it."

This is our area of disagreement. We have never believed the world is running out of oil, or that, if it were, other energy would not be available. Generally, we tend to think that human beings are flexibly innovative and the are plenty of materials that can be used as the building blocks of civilization. The scarcity meme trotted out virtually everywhere is just that in our view – likely a fear based promotion.

Kamran has a different perspective. He quotes writes about Brzezinski's book, point out that Brzezinski "has drawn two very interesting maps – one of these has the caption The Global Zone of Percolating Violence (page 53) and the other (page 124) is captioned The Eurasian Balkans. The first of these encircles a region which includes the following countries: Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, all Central Asian states, Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of Russia as well as India. The second one has two circles, an inner circle and a wider circle – the outer circle encloses the same countries as in the first map but the inner circle covers Iran, Afghanistan, eastern Turkey and the former Soviet Republics in Central Asia. …

"This huge region, torn by volatile hatreds and surrounded by competing powerful neighbours, is likely to be a major battlefield … A possible challenge to American primacy from Islamic fundamentalism could be part of the problem of this unstable region."

For Kamran, "The US might face a serious challenge from a coalition of China, Russia and Iran and must do whatever it can to prevent such a coalition from forming.

To his credit, Kamran describes the current phony war on terror as "a well planned and well thought out strategy, a lie and a deception, to provide cover for a military presence in the Central Eurasian region and elsewhere." Further, he believes it is being used to "keep the US public in a state of fear, to keep Russia in a state of insecurity about further breakup and to justify presence of US troops in and around Central Asia."

At this point he introduces another gentleman about whom we have many doubts: Michael Ruppert of Peak Oil fame. Ruppert, he explains, "points out that much of the violence in the Central Asian region as well as in Pakistan, which has been encircled in two maps in Brzezinski's book, was 'initiated by the US proxies.' … Given that these maps were published a full four years before the first plane hit the World Trade Centre, they would fall in a category of evidence I learned about at LAPD [Los Angeles Police Department]. We called them 'clues'."

They are not clues. This is in our humble opinion a deception. There is no such thing as Peak Oil and there is no such thing in this modern day and age as the Great Game. The idea that the Anglo-American elites are engaged in some all out rivalry with Russia and China is simply untrue in our view.

As we wrote recently, Western elites might have in mind a REGIONAL war (even a nuclear war) to be waged between Israel and the Arabs. Presumably, this would expand Israel's sway – and increase the West's power over Islam and Arabia – and has something to do with expanding global government as well. But the idea that the elites of Russia, China and the West hate and fear each other so much that they will engage in worldwide nuclear war (to what purpose?) is simply incorrect in our view.

There is only one Great Game being played we submit. It is aimed at the stiff-necked tribes of Eurasia and of the Middle East and upper Africa a well. These are areas that the Anglosphere elites don't effectively control yet. And that is what this great game is all about. Not oil. Not minerals. Not strategic military objectives. It seeks to Westernize (as much as necessary) the last parts of earth that have escaped dominion.

The good news is that this program is increasingly in chaos. The City of London – arrogant and contemptuous – simply doesn't wish to acknowledge what is increasingly evident to others: That the Internet has changed the rules of engagement. And that they may be losing, not winning.

We track the memes of the elite. But these dominant social themes are not working out in Afghanistan or in Europe. The Pashtun/Taliban are succeeding in fending off the greatest army ever assembled in the modern era and in Europe the euro continues to crumble. In fact, the entire insidious strategy of world domination that Western elites have been pursuing over the past 300 or so years has been exposed on the Internet – and thus has become far more difficult to implement.

Millions, even tens of millions understand it – and as the Internet is process not an episode, even more will understand tomorrow. It is impossible to create world government in secret when so many are tracking and tracing your every move.

We want to state our admiration for Kamran and his article (apparently he's got a book on the subject as well), because it so thoroughly presents what is going on. At the same time we want to reaffirm that in our humble view Western elites do NOT seek world war with China and Russia, nor will they likely stumble into one. 

The top men in the world all seek the same thing at this point: world government and population culling as a byproduct. Once this is understood, what is likely REALLY going on in the world snaps more or less into focus. Add in the elites helplessness as the Internet Reformation rages about them and you can come to some most interesting conclusions.

Conclusion: Far from facing a global nuclear war and nuclear winter, it is perfectly possible the 21st century will present humankind with a modern Renaissance and a reduction of the modern conspiracy. The elites may well find it necessary to take a step back as their fear-based promotions crumble and their use of violence ceases to be entirely effective. Perhaps this is an optimistic perspective, but is it beyond the realm of possibility?  

 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

In spite of my admiration for the staff of The Daily Bell, I believe the Bankers won’t hesitate to start a world war using Israel as the bad guy’s, if the Internet get’s them worried, and I say this giving respect for both opinion’s expressed in this article. In short, the Bankers have the power to do anything they deem expedient, and the internet is close to being made useless before the masses can be educated and motivated. The masses would prefer sacrificing their children before their comfort.

If Yemen Falls, so Does the Dollar Reserve?

http://www.thedailybell.com/2443/If-Yemen-Falls-so-Does-the-Dollar-Reserve.html

Saturday, June 04, 2011 – by Anthony Wile

How is it that the world's fortunes hang on the life or death of a murderous thug that the US has been supporting for 30 years? And why, in fact, if Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh is so important, isn't it common knowledge? Saleh was wounded yesterday when opposition forces blew up his palace. But as I'll discuss, below, there's more to the story. (Isn't there always?)

In my opinion, this story is so big it should be on the front pages of the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal: "US dollar hegemony hangs in the balance." Or how's this: "Future of the world's monetary system may be decided in Yemen's Sana’a."

How can one silly, little and desperately poor country full of people in ankle-length white robes be in the position to shake the foundations of the current monetary system of theAnglo-American empire?

First, context. It hasn't been a good year for the West's power elite. Yemen is only one country in tumult. Other countries verging on civil war are Bahrain and Syria. (Libya is already convulsed.) But in fact there are hundreds of places in the Middle East, Africa and Europe now where people are demonstrating and marching – or fighting with various levels of efficiency and organization.

In Afghanistan, the Obama administration is said to be desperately searching for Mullah Omar, the one-eyed leader of the Taliban, now and again reported dead or missing. US officials, in turn, wish to find Omar so that they can work out a deal where the US declares victory and Omar retains the territory. Some victory.

Libya is currently in a stalemate; China is Pakistan's new best friend; Pakistan's generals are again denying what Ms.Hillary Clinton – US Secretary of State – said only a week ago, that the Pakistan army was about to launch a significant attack against the Pashtun/Taliban. It's not true, the generals say.

Meanwhile, Egypt's youths sleep on the streets; Tunisian youth are no happier; Iran is gaining considerable regional influence because of the "color revolutions" that the CIA apparently triggered. Iraq is destabilizing again, and even the Palestinians are resurgent.

The Arab Awakening is truly a regional if not global phenomenon. Of course, we have our own name for it: The Internet Reformation. It's really the same thing. Just as the Gutenberg press spawned the Renaissance and Reformation, so the Internet has now spawned a truly significant social convulsion. The world will never be the same.  

America's CIA-sponsored AYM youth movements were behind the initial color revolutions. But notice how themainstream press has stopped celebrating them. Perhaps they haven't worked out as planned. Either Western elites are encouraging a series of Arab Islamic Republics (so as to buttress what seems to be an essentially phony "war on terror") or they are trying to create controllable regulatory democracies that will likely be run by dependable militaries with a constitutional façade. Neither of these options looks to be feasible in the near term.

Alternatively, the West seeks generalized chaos for some reason – or, more intriguingly, it has simply lost control of the situation. As we've stated before, Yemen is important because it may well indicate how much control the West actually has over the Arab Awakening. So far, what's been most apparent is dithering. The West hasn't shown a firm hand. There are reasons why.

Yemen may be spinning out of Western control. After Saleh was wounded, he was quoted as saying, "I salute our armed forces and the security forces for standing up firmly to confront this challenge by an outlaw gang that has nothing to do with the so-called youth revolution." It's interesting that the words Saleh used were "outlaw gang" as the tribal opposition to his rule denied making the attack. Apparently, it was what one might call "an inside job."

That means that individuals nominally allied with Saleh tried to knock him off. And why not? He is a thoroughly despicable man. He has ruled Yemen for about 30 years through a mixture of truculence and torture; like Gaddaffi, his favorite method of staying in power is one of "divide and conquer" in which he set various tribes against each other.

Yup … Yemen is another "tribal backwater" like Afghanistan – a place where the Anglo-American elite (exaggeratedly) has no interest. It is like a kid kicking a stone past the house of a pretty girl. He just happened along the way … and thus the US just "happened' into Afghanistan and Iraq. In fact, the US is intensely interested – mesmerized in a kind of Ted Bundy (bad) way.

How seriously does the Anglo-American empire take Afghanistan (as a speed-bump on the way to world government)? Try, probably, say … US$2 trillion in expenditures, thousands killed and tens of thousands wounded. True the total all-in cost hasn't been as much as Vietnam (50,000 dead and 500,000 wounded) but there's considerable evidence that the US has been undercounting the dead and wounded through a variety of manipulations.

Yemen has never presented the kind of problems as Afghanistan. In part that's because Yemen is even more difficult to subdue militarily than the stiff-necked Pashtun Taliban. The West has wanted as little to do with Yemen as possible (outside of controlling the coastline). Here's a description of Yemen by Paul Herman of the New Zealand Post in a recent article entitled "Cry, cry and cry again for my beloved Yemen."

So now my beloved Yemen is on the verge of going up in flames, on the verge of a cataclysmic civil war. I say "my beloved" because I had such an extraordinary time there on an Intrepid Journey a few years back Not a lot of people actually know where Yemen is. I don't think I really did until I checked a map before we went there. It is essentially the bottom left portion of the Arabian Peninsula. And what I certainly didn't realise about the entire Arabian Peninsula is that a massive mountain range runs north to south down its western side, sloping down eventually to the Red Sea.

In fact, the Saudis move their capital up to the mountains, to Taif, during the ferocious Arabian summers. The Yemeni capital Sana'a sits in this same mountain range. The thing about Yemen is the architecture. There is nothing like it in the world. They seem to have engineering in their genes. They built skyscrapers when no one was doing it.

Osama Bin Laden's father, who got rich building roads in Saudi Arabia, was Yemeni. He got so rich he rebuilt the mosque at Mecca with his own money. Old Man bin Laden came from one of the most spectacular parts of the world I have ever seen, the Wadi Hadromaut. It is probably as vast and as breathtaking as the Grand Canyon. And all through this great and ancient valley are villages perched on high, impossible sites, above steep cliffs, and you look at them and marvel because they have been there hundreds and hundreds of years.

How in God's name did they do that, you find yourself asking time and again, round every corner. It's the same through the entire country, especially in that great mountain range, villages with slim, square buildings six or seven storeys on the most unreachable ridges and peaks. And, of course, that was the point. Defensively, they are brilliantly sited. The truth is, neither the Turks – of whom there are still some 10,000 in Yemen – nor the British ever really conquered anywhere but the Yemeni coast. You couldn't get near those mountain villages. The Yemenis simply rolled great rocks down on you.

As Afghanistan is the key to Middle Asia, so Yemen is the key to "Arabia." The tribes of Oman and the Arab Emirates flowed out of Yemen. The Saud family came from Yemen apparently. And today Yemen is no less important than before in terms of the Great Game. It is perched on the edge of one of the most important waterways in the world and fronts the soft underbelly of Saudi Arabia – the part where many of the most profitable oil wells are located.

Yemen is formidable, and strangely important. But because of the mountains, because of the tribes, because of the weaponry (three rifles for every Yemeni), because boys are expected to be proficient with weapons from an early age, Yemen has not been high on the list of the Anglosphere's "civilizing" influences.

Ironically, the Yemenis are very similar culturally to the Somalis – from the same Somalia that Western newscasters like to call a failed state. (A failed state is any country that stands in the way of the West's dash toward One World Government.)

What Western mainstream media isn't bothering to report, however, is that the Anglo-American power elite could already have done away with Saleh if it wanted to. He's their man and has been for all of his violent existence. It is reprehensible that that Western elites would rather let Yemen drift into civil war than cease to support Saleh. There have been no moves made in the UN to put pressure on Saleh, no sanctions – only apparently regular ammo and tear gas refills, which he has used to slaughter hundreds of Yemenis.

The Western elites have not moved to do away with Saleh because they cannot apparently find a thug to put in his place that will garner a modicum of tribal support. The result of all this is growing antipathy. Possibly, because Yemen is another funny "impoverished backwater," the US has handled the Yemen very badly. The whole country is inflamed. Saleh, now wounded, will likely never get his power back and the chances that the CIA will have the opportunity to create a new Saleh are growing slimmer by the minute.

The Saudis worked desperately to move Saleh out of power. It is easy to see why now; that was their leverage. But now the nightmare scenario has occurred: increasingly the Saudis are perceived as propping Saleh up (which they are doing actually by not removing him). Ultimately all this returns to the US and the Pentagon, which in turn does the bidding of the City of London. So, here is the answer to the question asked at the beginning of this article. The answer is …

SAUDI ARABIA!

The corrupt and vicious Saudi regime lies at the heart of Money Power. Without Saudi willingness to support the continued dollar-oil exchange (forcing the rest of the world to hold dollars) the dollar reserve currency system seriously degrades.

The current system was put in place in the 1940s, but it was elaborated on in 1971, when the US severed the last link between gold and the dollar and substituted oil. How did the Anglosphere elites manage this trick? Using Mao's observation: "power springs from the barrel of a gun."

The Saudis were willing accomplices, but in reality they didn't have a choice. The world's economy, when you come down to it, is a product of American military force. Use the dollar to buy oil or else … But if the US and Saudi Arabia cannot control the spiraling disaster in Yemen, the next stop on the revolutionary train is Bahrain. And after that … Saudi Arabia. And THIS time, events may not be easily salvageable. The Internet has educated the Arab world about its history.

If the Anglosphere elites had only used their tremendous industrial and monetary advantages to build a free-market instead of a phony one (disguised as a free one)! But the elites chose to propagate a central banking economy in order to chase after world government, and now they are in danger of an eroding dollar reserve, which could eventually result in the creation of an entirely new (and uncontrollable) currency. Anyway, if Saudi Arabia falls, the dominoes may simply keep tumbling. Who pays any attention to funny little countries like Yemen anyway?

 

 

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

June 2nd, 2011 by

Global Research

Part one of a four-part series)

by Dean Henderson

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1]

So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?

This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.

One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation – founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. [2]

J. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.

CPA Thomas D. Schauf corroborates McCallister’s claims, adding that ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches. He names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York. Schauf lists William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman as individuals who own large shares of the Fed. [3] The Schiffs are insiders at Kuhn Loeb. The Stillmans are Citigroup insiders, who married into the Rockefeller clan at the turn of the century.

Eustace Mullins came to the same conclusions in his book The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, in which he displays charts connecting the Fed and its member banks to the families of Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller and the others. [4]

The control that these banking families exert over the global economy cannot be overstated and is quite intentionally shrouded in secrecy. Their corporate media arm is quick to discredit any information exposing this private central banking cartel as “conspiracy theory”. Yet the facts remain.

The House of Morgan

The Federal Reserve Bank was born in 1913, the same year US banking scion J. Pierpont Morgan died and the Rockefeller Foundation was formed. The House of Morgan presided over American finance from the corner of Wall Street and Broad, acting as quasi-US central bank since 1838, when George Peabody founded it in London.

Peabody was a business associate of the Rothschilds. In 1952 Fed researcher Eustace Mullins put forth the supposition that the Morgans were nothing more than Rothschild agents. Mullins wrote that the Rothschilds, “…preferred to operate anonymously in the US behind the facade of J.P. Morgan & Company”. [5]

Author Gabriel Kolko stated, “Morgan’s activities in 1895-1896 in selling US gold bonds in Europe were based on an alliance with the House of Rothschild.” [6]

The Morgan financial octopus wrapped its tentacles quickly around the globe. Morgan Grenfell operated in London. Morgan et Ce ruled Paris. The Rothschild's Lambert cousins set up Drexel & Company in Philadelphia.

The House of Morgan catered to the Astors, DuPonts, Guggenheims, Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. It financed the launch of AT&T, General Motors, General Electric and DuPont. Like the London-based Rothschild and Barings banks, Morgan became part of the power structure in many countries.

By 1890 the House of Morgan was lending to Egypt’s central bank, financing Russian railroads, floating Brazilian provincial government bonds and funding Argentine public works projects. A recession in 1893 enhanced Morgan’s power. That year Morgan saved the US government from a bank panic, forming a syndicate to prop up government reserves with a shipment of $62 million worth of Rothschild gold. [7]

Morgan was the driving force behind Western expansion in the US, financing and controlling West-bound railroads through voting trusts. In 1879 Cornelius Vanderbilt’s Morgan-financed New York Central Railroad gave preferential shipping rates to John D. Rockefeller’s budding Standard Oil monopoly, cementing the Rockefeller/Morgan relationship.

The House of Morgan now fell under Rothschild and Rockefeller family control. A New York Herald headline read, “Railroad Kings Form Gigantic Trust”. J. Pierpont Morgan, who once stated, “Competition is a sin”, now opined gleefully, “Think of it. All competing railroad traffic west of St. Louis placed in the control of about thirty men.”[8]

Morgan and Edward Harriman’s banker Kuhn Loeb held a monopoly over the railroads, while banking dynasties Lehman, Goldman Sachs and Lazard joined the Rockefellers in controlling the US industrial base. [9]

In 1903 Banker’s Trust was set up by the Eight Families. Benjamin Strong of Banker’s Trust was the first Governor of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The 1913 creation of the Fed fused the power of the Eight Families to the military and diplomatic might of the US government. If their overseas loans went unpaid, the oligarchs could now deploy US Marines to collect the debts. Morgan, Chase and Citibank formed an international lending syndicate.

The House of Morgan was cozy with the British House of Windsor and the Italian House of Savoy. The Kuhn Loebs, Warburgs, Lehmans, Lazards, Israel Moses Seifs and Goldman Sachs also had close ties to European royalty. By 1895 Morgan controlled the flow of gold in and out of the US. The first American wave of mergers was in its infancy and was being promoted by the bankers. In 1897 there were sixty-nine industrial mergers. By 1899 there were twelve-hundred. In 1904 John Moody – founder of Moody’s Investor Services – said it was impossible to talk of Rockefeller and Morgan interests as separate. [10]

Public distrust of the combine spread. Many considered them traitors working for European old money. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, Andrew Carnegie’s US Steel and Edward Harriman’s railroads were all financed by banker Jacob Schiff at Kuhn Loeb, who worked closely with the European Rothschilds.

Several Western states banned the bankers. Populist preacher William Jennings Bryan was thrice the Democratic nominee for President from 1896 -1908. The central theme of his anti-imperialist campaign was that America was falling into a trap of “financial servitude to British capital”. Teddy Roosevelt defeated Bryan in 1908, but was forced by this spreading populist wildfire to enact the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. He then went after the Standard Oil Trust.

In 1912 the Pujo hearings were held, addressing concentration of power on Wall Street. That same year Mrs. Edward Harriman sold her substantial shares in New York’s Guaranty Trust Bank to J.P. Morgan, creating Morgan Guaranty Trust. Judge Louis Brandeis convinced President Woodrow Wilson to call for an end to interlocking board directorates. In 1914 the Clayton Anti-Trust Act was passed.

Jack Morgan – J. Pierpont’s son and successor – responded by calling on Morgan clients Remington and Winchester to increase arms production. He argued that the US needed to enter WWI. Goaded by the Carnegie Foundation and other oligarchy fronts, Wilson accommodated. As Charles Tansill wrote in America Goes to War, “Even before the clash of arms, the French firm of Rothschild Freres cabled to Morgan & Company in New York suggesting the flotation of a loan of $100 million, a substantial part of which was to be left in the US to pay for French purchases of American goods.”

The House of Morgan financed half the US war effort, while receiving commissions for lining up contractors like GE, Du Pont, US Steel, Kennecott and ASARCO. All were Morgan clients. Morgan also financed the British Boer War in South Africa and the Franco-Prussian War. The 1919 Paris Peace Conference was presided over by Morgan, which led both German and Allied reconstruction efforts. [11]

In the 1930’s populism resurfaced in America after Goldman Sachs, Lehman Bank and others profited from the Crash of 1929. [12] House Banking Committee Chairman Louis McFadden (D-NY) said of the Great Depression, “It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all”.

Sen. Gerald Nye (D-ND) chaired a munitions investigation in 1936. Nye concluded that the House of Morgan had plunged the US into WWI to protect loans and create a booming arms industry. Nye later produced a document titled The Next War, which cynically referred to “the old goddess of democracy trick”, through which Japan could be used to lure the US into WWII.

In 1937 Interior Secretary Harold Ickes warned of the influence of “America’s 60 Families”. Historian Ferdinand Lundberg later penned a book of the exact same title. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas decried, “Morgan influence…the most pernicious one in industry and finance today.”

Jack Morgan responded by nudging the US towards WWII. Morgan had close relations with the Iwasaki and Dan families – Japan’s two wealthiest clans – who have owned Mitsubishi and Mitsui, respectively, since the companies emerged from 17th Century shogunates. When Japan invaded Manchuria, slaughtering Chinese peasants at Nanking, Morgan downplayed the incident. Morgan also had close relations with Italian fascist Benito Mussolini, while German Nazi Dr. Hjalmer Schacht was a Morgan Bank liaison during WWII. After the war Morgan representatives met with Schacht at the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. [13]

The House of Rockefeller

BIS is the most powerful bank in the world, a global central bank for the Eight Families who control the private central banks of almost all Western and developing nations. The first President of BIS was Rockefeller banker Gates McGarrah- an official at Chase Manhattan and the Federal Reserve. McGarrah was the grandfather of former CIA director Richard Helms. The Rockefellers- like the Morgans- had close ties to London. David Icke writes in Children of the Matrix, that the Rockefellers and Morgans were just “gofers” for the European Rothschilds. [14]

BIS is owned by the Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Bank of Italy, Bank of Canada, Swiss National Bank, Nederlandsche Bank, Bundesbank and Bank of France.

Historian Carroll Quigley wrote in his epic book Tragedy and Hope that BIS was part of a plan, “to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole…to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements.”

The US government had a historical distrust of BIS, lobbying unsuccessfully for its demise at the 1944 post-WWII Bretton Woods Conference. Instead the Eight Families’ power was exacerbated, with the Bretton Woods creation of the IMF and the World Bank. The US Federal Reserve only took shares in BIS in September 1994. [15]

BIS holds at least 10% of monetary reserves for at least 80 of the world’s central banks, the IMF and other multilateral institutions. It serves as financial agent for international agreements, collects information on the global economy and serves as lender of last resort to prevent global financial collapse.

BIS promotes an agenda of monopoly capitalist fascism. It gave a bridge loan to Hungary in the 1990’s to ensure privatization of that country’s economy. It served as conduit for Eight Families funding of Adolf Hitler- led by the Warburg's J. Henry Schroeder and Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam. Many researchers assert that BIS is at the nadir of global drug money laundering. [16]

It is no coincidence that BIS is headquartered in Switzerland, favorite hiding place for the wealth of the global aristocracy and headquarters for the P-2 Italian Freemason’s Alpina Lodge and Nazi International. Other institutions which the Eight Families control include the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Conference and the World Trade Organization.

Bretton Woods was a boon to the Eight Families. The IMF and World Bank were central to this “new world order”. In 1944 the first World Bank bonds were floated by Morgan Stanley and First Boston. The French Lazard family became more involved in House of Morgan interests. Lazard Freres- France’s biggest investment bank- is owned by the Lazard and David-Weill families- old Genoese banking scions represented by Michelle Davive. A recent Chairman and CEO of Citigroup was Sanford Weill.

In 1968 Morgan Guaranty launched Euro-Clear, a Brussels-based bank clearing system for Eurodollar securities. It was the first such automated endeavor. Some took to calling Euro-Clear “The Beast”. Brussels serves as headquarters for the new European Central Bank and for NATO. In 1973 Morgan officials met secretly in Bermuda to illegally resurrect the old House of Morgan, twenty years before Glass Steagal Act was repealed. Morgan and the Rockefellers provided the financial backing for Merrill Lynch, boosting it into the Big 5 of US investment banking. Merrill is now part of Bank of America.

John D. Rockefeller used his oil wealth to acquire Equitable Trust, which had gobbled up several large banks and corporations by the 1920’s. The Great Depression helped consolidate Rockefeller’s power. His Chase Bank merged with Kuhn Loeb’s Manhattan Bank to form Chase Manhattan, cementing a long-time family relationship. The Kuhn-Loeb’s had financed – along with Rothschilds – Rockefeller's quest to become king of the oil patch. National City Bank of Cleveland provided John D. with the money needed to embark upon his monopolization of the US oil industry. The bank was identified in Congressional hearings as being one of three Rothschild-owned banks in the US during the 1870’s, when Rockefeller first incorporated as Standard Oil of Ohio. [17]

One Rockefeller Standard Oil partner was Edward Harkness, whose family came to control Chemical Bank. Another was James Stillman, whose family controlled Manufacturers Hanover Trust. Both banks have merged under the JP Morgan Chase umbrella. Two of James Stillman’s daughters married two of William Rockefeller’s sons. The two families control a big chunk of Citigroup as well. [18]

In the insurance business, the Rockefellers control Metropolitan Life, Equitable Life, Prudential and New York Life. Rockefeller banks control 25% of all assets of the 50 largest US commercial banks and 30% of all assets of the 50 largest insurance companies. [19] Insurance companies- the first in the US was launched by Freemasons through their Woodman’s of America- play a key role in the Bermuda drug money shuffle.

Companies under Rockefeller control include Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco, Marathon Oil, Freeport McMoran, Quaker Oats, ASARCO, United, Delta, Northwest, ITT, International Harvester, Xerox, Boeing, Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, International Paper, Pfizer, Motorola, Monsanto, Union Carbide and General Foods.

The Rockefeller Foundation has close financial ties to both Ford and Carnegie Foundations. Other family philanthropic endeavors include Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, General Education Board, Rockefeller University and the University of Chicago- which churns out a steady stream of far right economists as apologists for international capital, including Milton Friedman.

The family owns 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the national Christmas tree is lighted every year, and Rockefeller Center. David Rockefeller was instrumental in the construction of the World Trade Center towers. The main Rockefeller family home is a hulking complex in upstate New York known as Pocantico Hills. They also own a 32-room 5th Avenue duplex in Manhattan, a mansion in Washington, DC, Monte Sacro Ranch in Venezuela, coffee plantations in Ecuador, several farms in Brazil, an estate at Seal Harbor, Maine and resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. [20]

The Dulles and Rockefeller families are cousins. Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy hit from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. [21]

Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala. Both were Skull & Bones, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) insiders and 33rd Degree Masons. [22]

The Rockefellers were instrumental in forming the depopulation-oriented Club of Rome at their family estate in Bellagio, Italy. Their Pocantico Hills estate gave birth to the Trilateral Commission. The family is a major funder of the eugenics movement which spawned Hitler, human cloning and the current DNA obsession in US scientific circles.

John Rockefeller Jr. headed the Population Council until his death. [23] His namesake son is a Senator from West Virginia. Brother Winthrop Rockefeller was Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas and remains the most powerful man in that state. In an October 1975 interview with Playboy magazine, Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller- who was also Governor of New York- articulated his family's patronizing worldview, “I am a great believer in planning- economic, social, political, military, total world planning.”

But of all the Rockefeller brothers, it is Trilateral Commission (TC) founder and Chase Manhattan Chairman David who has spearheaded the family’s fascist agenda on a global scale. He defended the Shah of Iran, the South African apartheid regime and the Chilean Pinochet junta. He was the biggest financier of the CFR, the TC and (during the Vietnam War) the Committee for an Effective and Durable Peace in Asia- a contract bonanza for those who made their living off the conflict.

Nixon asked him to be Secretary of Treasury, but Rockefeller declined the job, knowing his power was much greater at the helm of the Chase. Author Gary Allen writes in The Rockefeller File that in 1973, “David Rockefeller met with twenty-seven heads of state, including the rulers of Russia and Red China.”

Following the 1975 Nugan Hand Bank/CIA coup against Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, his British Crown-appointed successor Malcolm Fraser sped to the US, where he met with President Gerald Ford after conferring with David Rockefeller. [24]

Agenda 21 the Death Knell of Liberty

June 1st, 2011 by

 

"From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden."

                                                            —Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address (1981)

By Web Master

America is experiencing a silent revolution of ideology which could result in a transformation of America.   

One group, the Conservatives, believe in Individual Freedom as stated in the American Declaration of Independence, " We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."  These unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man are granted by God and can never be taken away. Their allegiance is to America and they promote American exceptionalism and American nationalism. They believe in America First and promote FREEDOM, small Government, following the Rule of Law, protecting the American citizens as laid out in the United States Constitution. They believe that the best Government is that closest to the people and State Sovereignty is most important.  

The other group (the Liberals), believe in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brother-hood. They believe that every individual has the,right to work, right to education, right to social security, right to own property, right to freedom of thought,, conscience, and religion.

 These rights are granted by man and can be taken away or changed at any time.

Their allegiance is to the World and they promote global citizenship and social (collective) justice. They believe in the New World Order and promote the environment over man. They believe that Government should be the end all, be all, to all people, and that and wealth should be distributed throughout the population. Therefore, individual rights, land and money belong to the Government and should be distributed to the collective.

The definition of Rights is quite different for each group. The Conservatives believe that no person has a Right if it infringes upon the Right of another person. The Liberals believe it is OK to forcefully take Rights from someone else and give it to another.

The clash of ideology has resulted in chaos in all aspects of American life. Have you asked yourself recently why America is in the horrific shape it is in today? With so many brilliant minds in educators, labor, economists reporting to the Congress and the President, in so many sectors, how could America wind up broke, ignorant and on the verge of becoming a third world country? It seems as though the rest of the world is advancing their economy while America is going backwards.

America today does not make sense.

Nothing in America makes sense until you start digging into UN Agenda 21.  Then everything makes sense.  UN Agenda 21 is the thread, or UN blueprint for Global Governance that is currently practiced in every US Government Agency in America today.  UN Agenda 21 is a communist/socialist/progressive agenda put in place by a few Progressive Elites to stifle freedom, creativity, ingenuity and economy of the greatest country in the world so Americans will not question this new ruling class determined to create a "New World Order".   Agenda 21 is not based on fact actually it is based on failed communist principals and Keynesian Economics calling for increased Government and spending funded by higher taxes.    

Agenda 21 is not just Democratic or Republican.  It is supported by both.  Agenda 21 was never ratified by the US Senate, yet through continued Executive Orders,  our government agencies are following this agenda to turn America into a socialist/communist country.  Agenda 21 is now dictating our every way of life.  Americans are paying the UN to steal our country.  WHY?   There is only one answer: MONEY and POWER.

America has provided more humanity, more invention, more freedom in its 200 years of existence than any other country in recorded history. Unbelievably, America is on the verge of collapse.  American economists would have our citizens believe that our economy is made up of separate sectors and each is autonomous.  Strategies and reports are presented in separately.  Citizens are constantly divided into different categories while being pitted against each other. Surveys are designed to show separate and targeted results. Laws are made without thinking:  What are the consequences on the people? What is affect on other sectors of the economy?   WHY?  By keeping the people fragmented and divided they will not realize what they lose and no one will tie America's demise to Agenda 21. 

America is now at an ideological crossroad. Choices must be made that will dictate our future and that of our children.  Without complete total information, the truth is concealed. The question is why? Most Americans do not have the time or inclination for anything more than a sound bite, but without relevant  knowledge and information, bit by bit we let our freedom and liberty dissolve and slip away. We the people, elect officials who we assume will act in our best interest.  Once the officials are in office we do not pay attention to what they are doing.  We have allowed ourselves to become too involved with sports, movies, video games and other mindless distractions.   The result…  America has been has been sold piece by piece and taken over by people who do not have our best interest.   Do we want to continue down this path?

 

Let us for a moment forget that we are Republican or Democrat. Why? Each party has both Liberals and Conservatives. According to polls America is made up of 10% hard core Liberals and 10% hard core conservatives.  Depending on the poll, the rest of the country is a center right leaning majority.

Who are these Groups? 

Conservatives (aka Rightists, Libertarians, Tea Party, 912 Groups, Constitutionalists) believe that the individual has rights given to them by God.  Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness together with Morality (the Ten Commandments) make up a list of laws by which Americans agree to live.  Conservatives believe that the power of a successful life rests with the individual.  Each individual has the same opportunity to make the choices that will dictate the success or failure of their life.  Each individual is responsible for their choices.  Conservatives believe if you make a mistake, look in the mirror and blame yourself. There is no such thing as perfection, the individual will make mistakes but the power of morality will intercede.   Conservatives follow the Constitution and believe in open debate welcoming comments from any side involved in the issue. 

You can live where ever you choose, buy whatever you choose.  You are free to make choices regarding your life, your family, your home and your neighborhood, state and country.  Every action has a consequence and you are in control of the action and the consequences that dictate your life.  If you don't like something, you have the power to fix it.  You are free to explore, invent, create and become the success you want to be.  Yes, you must follow laws but, you know the rules in advance so following them is not difficult.    

 
The Liberals (aka Communists, Progressives, Elite Socialists, Democrats, Leftists, Marxists, Global Elite, Globalists) believe that everything must be owned and controlled by the government.  The 10% hard core Liberals are often defined as the Progressive Elite.  For our purpose of defining the group, we will call them Progressive elite.  Progressive Elite truly believe Rights are granted by the government who knows best and can take away those rights at any time. Progressive Elite truly believe that they are capable of creating utopia on Earth, because of their superior wisdom. If they can just regulate ENOUGH, this fantasy will be realized. The trouble is that they never reach ENOUGH, and at some point those that resist must be eliminated and they have no problem with mass genocide.  They believe people are stupid and need to be lead into making the right choices. In order to help you make those choices, you are spoon fed controlled information slanted to their correct results.   Since we all love the earth, by telling you that what you are doing will harm the earth, Progressive Elites will get your support. 

Progressive Elites believe the environment is more important than the people. The group is more important than the individual. They are constantly selling the perfect society… a utopia where everyone works and gives most of their money to the state that in turn will take care of every need. But, if someone doesn't want to work, that's OK because someone else will work and pay for them.  Imagine going to school and working really hard. You are in a class where others don't work at all. You would get an A and the others would get an F. In Utopia, without competition, a level playing field means you get a C. Mediocrity is normal.  There is no motivation to work, become successful or have personal pride. There is no pride in ownership, no pride in family, no major Accomplishments, just the mundane life dictated by those who know better. Whether you elected them or not doesn't matter because your vote doesn't matter. The elections are predetermined.  If you don't like your life, too bad. if you speak out… Chavez just executed 2 people who spoke out.  Egypt, Greece, Tunisia must protest through riots to get their voices heard.  Progressive Elite believe in ONE WORLD, ONE GOVERNMENT with rules and regulations put in place by a few Progressive Elite who will determine your life and behavior. Progressive Elites do not tolerate criticism and often make up answers with little regard for the truth.    

The Ultimate Progressive Elite goal: You will live in a sustainable community which is a community around which government draws an Urban Boundary Zone (UBZ- fence), and forbids city services to be delivered outside the UBZ, prohibits new construction outside the UBZ, and requires residents within the UBZ to live in housing that meets the size and cultural integration standards set forth in the code or comprehensive plan. Sustainable communities are high-density communities where automobiles are discouraged, and bikeways and walkways are the alternative to public transportation.  Everyone's living quarters are the same and dictated by the government based on the allowable size of your family (Communist China allows 1 child per family).Say goodbye to big family rural living.  

The American Majority leans center right and have more in common than they realize.  "WE THE PEOPLE" is how we are referred to in our Constitution.  When we talk together we find that we all have similar goals….

 

  • Follow the Constitution – America first – Speak English
  • Protect Liberties, Freedom, Sovereignty, Borders
  • Family 
  • Education
  • American Pride and Exceptionalism
  • Competition
  • Free Market with enforcement of unobtrusive Rules and Regulations
  • Reasonably Protect the Environment by first protecting Humanity
  • Fiscal Responsibility

Our power is our massive size and voting block which our Founding Fathers put in place as a form of checks and balances to keep our Government in line...Where did that go wrong?  

The answer to any tough question is always simple if you research.  "Divided We Fail" is the tool of the 10% Progressive Elite to keep America divided.  Through the use of the media, the UN, and other nonprofit organizations, economy, environment and political correctness the goal is easily accomplished.  Items like:  Whites polls, Blacks polls, Hispanic polls, Republican polls, Democratic polls, Union vs non- union, Legal vs Illegals, Rich vs Poor, Urban vs rural, One Religion vs another Religion,  Haves vs Have Nots, Parents vs Children.  Of course the favorite tactic, used when all else fails, is to call the opposition  "Racists".  You get the picture.  All the Progressive Elite has to do is manipulate the media and report on some inane topic which has nothing to do with the current issues at hand, the majority polarizes and shifts its attention off the key point.  Congress passes another liberty destroying Bill in the middle of the night.  

Divided people do not talk, do not have a public forum and are desensitized to the needs, wants and ideas of others.  Your thought process is altered; communication is slanted. There is no logic, reason or common sense. You are programmed to act on emotionand are easily lead by the Progressive Elite who know what is best for you.  The rest is easy.  The Progressive Elite create the situation (crisis), rile you up with half truths or no truth at all, get you to act against your friend, neighbor, countrymen and then have the solution which usually comes in the form of you giving up some right in the name of the common good. But whose common good? Certainly not yours.  

 

As previously stated, America is at a crossroad and we are being asked to make a choice.  Without the full information how is making a choice possible?  Remember when the BP well exploded, the inaction of the administration did not make sense.  Why was there no action for almost 100 days?  Why was a toxic dispersant, Corexit, harmful to the people, environment, seafood, wildlife, oil industry, jobs, the economy allowed to continue to be dumped in the Gulf?  Why after a Federal judge said there was no basis for a moratorium did the administration ignore the judge?   Why did the administration doctor reports from their own committee, use phony scientific analysis to force America to depend on foreign oil when America has 400 years of oil resources, more oil resources than all of the Middle East combined? What is wrong with this picture?  Why does the administration want America to fail? Lose jobs? Destroy the oil industry?  Deem oil off limits? Nothing makes sense… 

There had to be another reason. Research was needed to find answers.  Funny at this same time thousands of people all over the country were asking questions of similar nature as their communities were being economically affecting for different reasons. Then amazing discoveries were made.  Citizens began to talk, ask questions and UNITE.  
  
We discovered that too many answers came back with the same conclusion.  If everything in life is connected, was there a much bigger agenda being followed?  Yes there was.  It was called UN AGENDA 21.     The UN Global Elite solution for the world.  Why could something that sounds so good on paper be a recipe for evil and call for the downfall of America?
UN Agenda 21 calls for:

Global Governance

  • Redistribution of Wealth
  • Depopulation
  • Sustainable developments
  • Environment over Humanity
  • Collective Rights over Individual Rights granted by the Elite
  • Education of unrelated concepts, not facts
  • Disasters of capitalism and the free market

 

Again the answer is simple: MONEY and POWER
Agenda 21 was put together at the 1992 UN conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Although Pres. George W. Bush (New World Order) signed the agreement, it was never ratified by the Senate.  To bypass the Senate, Pres. Clinton then signed an Executive Order #12852 and put the ball in motion.  Today we are following the unfair trade agreements signed at that time. Look up NAFTA and view the You Tube video:  Debate Bush, Clinton and Perot. Who was right?

After studying the results of the Executive Order #12852, we discovered America is paying a fortune to bureaucrats not elected, to determine our laws and rights.  These bureaucrats , in the UN, in Government and Non-Government Agencies have the sole purpose of following UN Agenda 21 while turning America into third rate country left in world-wide financial ruin.  Surprise, the people running our government were benefiting financially with huge windfalls.    

We believe that few Americans have knowledge of the depth Agenda 21.  We believe that most agencies are never told the entire Agenda instead they are given bits and pieces.  The affect on America as a whole is never known. Now it is out.  Once you understand how Agenda 21 will alter your existence as you know it, you know you have the power to stop it dead in its tracks.   

This web site is a compilation of years of research from many people who have often put themselves in harm's way to expose the tentacles of Agenda 21.It is the purpose of the website to tie those pieces of Agenda 21 together and show you how it affects every aspect of your past, present and future.Use the website as a tool to do your own research and learn. 

Read this site many times and verify everything you see. Ask questions, research answers and share those answers with your friends, family, legislators and community. For those who ask, "What can I do?", look at our action plan.  The main goal of this site is EDUCATION. The rest is up to you… What America do you and your family want to live in? 
Do you want an America with the Freedom of Choice; or an America where you are told your choice?

Liberal = Socialists=Communitarian=Fabian/ Just fancy words that = LOSS OF FREEDOM 

Agenda 21 the Death Knell of Liberty 

Knowledge is Power!

GEORGE SOROS CONTROLS GUNS AND AMMO PRODUCTION

June 1st, 2011 by

 

Anytime there is talk of gun control George Soros will make millions

as people rush

out to buy more guns and ammo. 
 
 
The George Soros controlled private equity company Cerberus Capital Management could cut off all gun and ammunition sales in the US. Apparently, the American people are totally unaware that Cerberus has for the past decade acquired nearly every gun and ammunition maker in the United States and consolidated them into a holding company called The Freedom Group.

Obama under fire for eyeing gun control 'under the radar'

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last updated at 9:19 PM on 29th May 2011
 

President Obama's administration is exploring tighter regulation on gun policy through executive action

The Obama administration is exploring tighter regulation on gun policy that can be secured through an executive order, bypassing congressional approval, officials have confirmed.

The potential crackdown has prompted concern among gun rights groups in the ongoing debate surrounding gun control and Second Amendment rights.

Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are being considered, amidst its crossfire over regulations with a Republican-dominated House.

The Department of Justice held a meeting on Tuesday – the first in what is expected to be a series – to explore how the administration might be able to rule by decree.

Before the meeting, officials said topics of discussion would range from encouraging more thorough background checks and more efficient data-sharing.

An administration official told Fox News: 'The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum. We think that’s a good place to start.'

The news follows a report last month by the Washington Post in which President Obama is quoted saying his administration was working on gun control 'under the radar'.

The comment was reportedly made during a private meeting with his staff on March 30.

The remark came in the wake of the January killing spree in Arizona that left Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords critically injured after she was shot at point-blank range by 22-year-old Jarod Loughner.
 

Six people died and another thirteen people were injured in the attack, putting gun control policy back on the forefront for debate.

Lawmakers have since offered several proposals for tighter restrictions.

However, the prospect of the White House fulfilling an agenda behind closed doors has sparked an outcry among opponents for tighter gun control.
 Gun Owners of America Director Larry Pratt told Fox News: 'They're doing a pretty good job.

'As Obama has said, "under the radar"… There's a lot going on under that radar. They've shown us how much they are prepared to do through regulation.'

Pratt referred to a proposal from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in which dealers in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas would be required to report multiple sales to the same person of certain kinds of rifles.

A study released by the ATF in January that examined restricting certain shotguns from being imported to the U.S. has been heavily denounced by the National Rifle Association.

The write-up is based on a 1968 law that restricts imports of firearms to those used for 'sporting purposes'.

Another proposal by longtime Senate gun control advocate Frank Lautenberg bans high-capacity ammunition clips, like the one that left Giffords wounded.

It has not passed on to Congress.

A bill introduced earlier this month by New York Representative McCarthy would impose stricter penalties on states that fail to enter the names of people prohibited from buying guns into a national database. It would also require background checks for all gun sales, including at gun shows.

McCarthy spokesman Shams Tarek said President Obama has yet to endorse her proposal.

'That's just something we haven't heard the president say anything about,' Tarek said, adding the Obama administration is 'very, very much in listening mode'.

In March, the President addressed his concerns over gun violence to the Arizona Daily Star, supporting more thorough background checks.

While stressing his support of an individual's right to bear arms, as protected in the Second Amendment, he defended his stance, stating 'there's more we can to to prevent gun violence'.

Gun-rights activists are criticising the efforts, citing a study released by the FBI in September that showed gun sales were up in 2009, while violent crimes of all types declined by 5.3 per cent.

Figures from the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) showed 14million guns were sold in 2009, the biggest year since the system began recording data in 1998.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said enforcement of current gun control laws should be of primary concern.

Arulanandam told Fox News: 'The American public does not support gun control… What the American public wants is for criminals to be punished for their mistakes.'

Cerberus' Freedom Group guns for $200 million IPO

Wed, Oct 21 2009

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management CBS.UL is planning to take gun maker Freedom Group Inc public in a $200 million initial public offering, according to a regulatory filing.

Freedom Group, which designs, manufactures and markets firearms under brands that include Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster, Parker and Nesika, said in the filing it has the largest market share in all of its major product groups in the United States.

Cerberus, which owns 94.3 percent of Freedom Group's shares according to the filing, could use a successful IPO after sustaining massive losses from its investments in carmaker Chrysler and in GMAC.

Earlier this month, Cerberus successfully took public one of its portfolio companies, plasma-based protein therapy maker Talecris Biotherapeutics Holdings Corp (TLCR.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz). Talecris raised $950 billion and rose 11.3 percent in its debut. Shares were up 2.6 percent over the IPO price on Wednesday.

But the filing comes at a time when several other private equity backed IPOs have stumbled in their debuts. Last week, RailAmerica (RA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), owned by funds managed by Fortress Investment Group LLC (FIG.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), fell 8 percent in its debut after pricing below expectations.

Freedom Group sold about 1.1 million long guns and 2 billion rounds of ammunition in the year ended June 30, 2009, according to its prospectus, filed on Wednesday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In 2006, Cerberus bought Bushmaster Firearms, and in 2007 bought Remington Arms, the largest U.S. maker of rifles. Subsequently, it bought gunmakers DPMS Firearms and Marlin Firearms to form Freedom Group.

Freedom Group did not specify what it would use the IPO proceeds for beyond saying they were for working capital and general capital

The company reported net sales of $427.3 million for the six months ended June 30, up 34.9 percent over the year earlier period, and net income of $32.8 million.

US ENERGY POLICY HELD HOSTAGE BY OPEC AND POLITICIANS

June 1st, 2011 by

While the Environmental Protection Agency recently declared that oil companies could once again obtain leases to explore and drill for oil domestically, the Department of Energy continues to stonewall any progress in creating an energy independent United States.

According to political strategist Mike Baker, the Obama Administration is making it more, not less difficult to achieve oil and gasoline independence.

For example, Baker points to how part of the $789 billion economic stimulus package in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided the Energy Department with an additional $38.3 billion for fiscal years 2009 and 2010, adding about 75 percent to Energy's annual budgets. Most of the stimulus spending was in the form of grants and contracts.

"When President Jimmy Carter and the U.S. Congress created the U.S. Department of Energy in 1977, little did Americans know at the time that pencil-pushing bureaucrats would slowly and silently create a colossus centralized government power," said Baker.

To understand the rationale for suddenly creating a bureaucracy, one must be familiar with the Carter Administration. Arguably the worst president in U.S. history, Carter faced double-digit inflation, domestic and foreign policy failures, and a fuel shortage so severe that Americans would actually shoot or beat someone who dared to jump the gas lines that stretched for numerous city blocks.

In an attempt to bring order — at least, at gas stations — driver's were allowed gasoline on alternate days according to odd or even numbers on their licence plates. If you licence ended in an even number you could gas up on Monday. Odd number? Tuesday was your day.

In addition to the shortage, gasoline prices skyrocketed as well.

Formed as a result of this gasoline crisis by President Carter's signing of legislation named The Department of Energy Organization Act of 1977, the original responsibility of the fledgling agency was energy policy.

Eventually, the Secretary of Energy included the nation's nuclear weapons program, nuclear reactor production for the United States Navy, energy conservation, energy-related research, radioactive waste disposal, and domestic energy production to the department's list of government responsibility.

DOE is today involved in more basic and applied scientific research than any other US federal agency. It is President Barack Obama who unveiled a $26.4 billion budget request for DOE for fiscal year 2011, including $2.3 billion for the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

Obama's budget aims to substantially expand the use of renewable energy sources while improving energy transmission infrastructure. It also makes significant investments in hybrids and plug-in hybrids, in smart grid technologies, and in scientific research and innovation.

As with any government entity, the DOE is constantly growing in size and power. For example, a new regulation will impact every single household in the nation in the coming months.

Under a law to be enforced by the DOE, all light bulbs must use 25% to 30% less energy than today's products by 2012 to 2014. The phase-in will start with 100-watt bulbs in 2012 and end with 40-watt bulbs in 2014. By 2020, bulbs must be 70% more efficient.

Incandescent bulbs were invented over 120 years ago, and environmentalists claim they could be replaced by many superior technologies if only the right regulations and financial incentives were put in place.

The alternative to the incandescent bulb is the Compact Fluorescent Lamp. However, observers believe CFLs present their own environmental problems.

"These bulbs contain mercury. That's the only way they can work. The mercury vapor reacts to electricity to produce the light," said Paul Hemingway writing on presidential candidate Ron Paul's web site.

"This is another case of the cart before the horse. With rare exception, there is no safe way to dispose of these bulbs. They are ending up in landfills and lots of them are broken. The mercury will be seeping into the ground and our water supplies," he wrote.

"A few states were fighting against the ban on incandescent light bulbs. Now they are backing away from it. This is just another major government intrusion into our lives," said conservative political strategist Michael Baker.

To date, over 30 countries (including the members of the European Union, the US, China and Australia) have had a look at the available lighting technologies and decided that the case for the banning of domestic incandescent light bulbs stacks up.

Radical environmentalists in Britain claim the UK's ban of incandescents will reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 2-3 million tons. Similarly the EU's annual emissions will be reduced by 23 million tons. Meanwhile, the Chinese government's decision to stop manufacturing 70% of the world's incandescent light bulbs will reduce the world's annual carbon emissions by even more, according to some environmentalists.

But it's the United States that is setting the standards for the world when it comes to environmental issues and Republicans in the White House and in the legislature appear ready to go along with the wishes of militant environmentalists.

So a government bureaucracy created in 1977 to deal with gasoline shortages and high prices at the pumps is becoming the "energy police" for our nation. And how is the DOE doing with the problem it was first created to solve? Well, a little over 33 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports. Domestic oil production policy is dictated by environmental fanatics and political lightweights and enforcement by an agency that's out of control.

GASOLINE AND OIL

According to Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO), members of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Commerce pressed EPA bureaucrats about the reasons behind the lengthy permitting process. While opponents to extracting oil from Alaskan waters attempted to justify the delays with public health concerns, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has conceded that these drilling operations “will not cause air pollution that will endanger [public] health.”

The importance of Alaskan crude production to the West Coast and our overall energy independence, will reduce dependence on imports that have raised relative crude oil prices on the West Coast. Experts believe that without continued production in Alaska, the West Coast will grow more dependent on imports from OPEC.

Experts claim that permit delays at the EPA are preventing over 27 billion barrels of oil in Alaska’s offshore fields from reaching American consumers.

In addition, last Thursday the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power, chaired by Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY), hosted the “American Energy Initiative” hearing. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) unveiled the initiative at a press conference alongside other top House Republicans including Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee Fred Upton (R-MI).

Thursday’s hearing focused on oil supplies, gasoline prices, and oil extraction in the Gulf of Mexico. Global events in Libya and the Middle East provided Americans with sharp reminder of the potential for an oil-supply disruption, underscoring our own nation’s energy vulnerabilities. As gasoline prices continue to rise, approaching $5.00 per gallon, the nation can no longer afford policies that lock away our domestic oil-and-gas resources and thwart job growth.

We must pursue a new American Energy Initiative to fortify our energy security and provide for high-paying American jobs, Boehner told his colleagues.

SUPREME COURT UPHELD ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAWS

May 30th, 2011 by

In what can only be labeled a victory for the American people and the rule of law along with states’ rights, the Supreme Court this week upheld Arizona’s E-Verify law that mandates that employers hire legal American citizens and not illegal aliens.

Roy Beck, director of NumbersUSA.org, gave this definitive interview on this victory:

“The most important result of today's Supreme Court rulingprobably is not what will happen in the states but in Congress,” said Beck. “With more than a dozen states with different E-Verify laws and different rules for businesses — and with the Supreme Court opening the way for all other states to adopt their own rules — the business lobbies ought to be ready to work with Congress to pass a uniform national law.

“Many businesses that operate in multiple states are already complaining to their lobbyists that they don't like operating under all the different rules and would prefer a national law. Unless Congress passes a mandatory E-Verify law this year, at least a dozen more states are likely next winter to pass their own E-Verify laws.

“One of the complaints that business lobbyists are hearing from their members in states WITH E-Verify laws is that they don't like competing with businesses in other states that are allowed to use cheaper illegal labor while forcing taxpayers to subsidize them. So many businesses in E-Verify states are joining us in the pressure for a national law.”

BUSINESS LOBBIES HAVE BLOCKED TOTAL E-VERIFY IN CONGRESS FOR 15 YEARS — BUT WE HAVE BEEN WINNING STEP VICTORIES

‘Lobbyists for business groups and illegal-alien advocacy groups have blocked Congress from passing a national mandatory law since 1996,” said Beck. “NumbersUSA and its allies have fought every year to win incremental victories. First, to create the workplace verification system as a pilot program for just a few states. Later, to expand the voluntary system nationwide. Most recently to persuade Pres. Obama to mandate its use for all federal contractors.

“If the Supreme Court had knocked us down today, the business lobbies would have looked out over a whole nation without any states requring employers to electronically verify that they weren't hiring illegal foreign workers. And they would have felt little pressure to do anything other than they've always done, which is to throw all their weight in Congress toward protecting employers that prefer to hire illegal aliens over unemployed Americans. But not now.”

THIS WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT IMMIGRATION COURT CASE — AND WE WON IT

The case is Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, 09-115.

“Of all the open-border groups' court challenges against immigration enforcement across the country, this suit before the U.S. Supreme Court (that was heard last December) was/is by far the most important.”

AND WE WON IT 5-3!

“Nothing will do more to retard future illegal immigration and accelerate the departure of the current illegal population than taking away the job magnet,” said Beck. “Arizona and more than a dozen other states have already passed various versions of E-Verify law. All of those could have been wiped out when the Supreme Court announced its decision this morning.

“But instead, our strategy of mandating E-Verify in as many states as possible to pressure Congress to do it nationwide has been approved by the highest court of the land.”

NumbersUSA's AMICUS BRIEF WAS PART OF THIS COURT CASE

“You may remember that as soon as the Supreme Court began business last fall NumbersUSA filed an Amicus brief in support of the State of Arizona making sure that the Justices and their clerks were aware of a number of important legal and factual points that we weren't certain were in the main briefs.

“The key issue in the court case was whether Arizona could take away the business license of an employer who refuses to use E-Verify. The NumbersUSA Amicus went into great detail in showing that such a state law is precisely what Congress has set up as a state enforcement option over the last 25 years. The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts who said that Arizona's E-Verify law "falls well within the confines of the authority Congress chose to leave to the states."

“Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. (The newest Justice, Elena Kagan, was not involved in this case because she had been part of Pres. Obama's support of the Chamber of Commerce before she was elected to the Court.)

“Please keep opening our email Alerts and joining with your fellow citizens in considering all the actions we will be offering you the next weeks to get a vote on E-Verify on the House floor this summer and in the Senate by fall.”

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I saw this coming long ago.

One way or another, our sick scumbag government will control who works, and who does not, where you work, and everything else about you. Thanks to the assholes in the International Chamber of Commerce and all those who supported this bill, Americans will now have to surrender documentation to their employer just to have a job.

CONGRATULATIONS FROSTY, AND NUMBERS U.S.A., YOU HAVE HELPED THE GOVERNMENT PASS A NATIONAL I.D. WITH REAL TEETH!

MOST AMERICANS WOULD SELL THEIR MOTHER'S FOR A JOB!

 

International Monetary Fund Memes Roll On

Christine Lagarde

Monday, May 30, 2011 – by Staff Report

Why Christine Lagarde should never be head of the IMF … Christine Lagarde is in poll position. Having put her name forward last week, the silver-haired French finance minister may well become the new managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Lagarde has, with a depressing inevitability, secured the backing of most European countries. The UK was among the first to endorse her. There are rumours the mighty US could soon throw its weight behind Lagarde – making her bid a fait accompli. Europe seems determined to retain its prerogative of appointing the boss of the world's most important financial watchdog. Throughout the IMF's 65-year history, all 11 bosses have been from Western Europe. In return for allowing this stitch-up, America has traditionally provided the IMF deputy, while securing the top spot at the World Bank. – UK Telegraph

Dominant Social Theme: At this most critical time, this Western powers are about to make a critical mistake regarding this critical facility!

Free-Market Analysis: There seems to be emerging consensus in the constitutionally suspicious alternative Internet press that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was "stung" for any one of a variety of reasons. It was not rape, therefore, that brought him down but his effectiveness in dealing with the EU's economic crisis.

Alternatively, we have read, his arrest provided a distraction from the real and serious failures surrounding the great powers ability to deal with the unfolding crisis.

Finally, there is the idea that DSK wanted to continue to rejigger the voting mechanisms of the IMF. The US currently holds 17 percent of the votes in the IMF and IMF bylaws demand a majority of 85 percent for any substantial moves or changes in policy. Thus, the IMF is the US's creation and is beholden to it.

Anyway, we've stayed away from speculating. We don't seen any specific promotional value in what happened to DSK, other than to reinforce the meme that American justice is absolutely pure and non-discriminatory. But that's a pretty small, sub dominant meme, not one that would seem especially worth reinforcing at this point in time.

While we are not tempted to join the fray regarding DSK conspiracy theories, we have presented on several occasions the one powerful dominant social theme that has predictably emerged from the affair, which is that the IMF is an incredibly important institution and that its leaders are really, really, really important people.

In fact, if there were no IMF and no leadership it is likely – so we are informed – that the world's economies would probably collapse sooner rather than later. You can see our previous articles on the topic here:

www.thedailybell.com/2368/Perfecting-the-IMF.html

www.thedailybell.com/2307/Arrest-of-IMFs-Most-Magnificent-Man-Seen-as-Ending-the-World.html

We recently analyzed the memes in an article by Joseph Stiglitz on this topic, entitled, "The IMF cannot afford to make a mistake with Strauss-Kahn's successor." Now the UK Telegraph has issued yet another jeremiad on the importance of the IMF from columnist Liam Halligan. This focuses on the meme of IMF-as-most-important-institution-ever.

The institution he writes, "needs to reflect the extent to which the world has changed since it was launched from the ashes of the Second World War." Why? Because the markets could soon face another "Lehman moment." Lehman Brothers is widely held to have destabilized global markets in 2008.

From this (fallacious in our view) perspective, Halligan goes on to argue that it would be a "historic" mistake to appoint a European to head the IMF, especially given that non-Western countries compose most of the world's population now, some 80 percent. He cites other statistics too: The world's markets produce half the GDP and out-trade the West. They hold most of the world's currency reserves and are not mired in debt.

The IMF, he concludes, needs a leader from the developing world, a world that has arranged its finances better than the Western world. The West does not have a moral argument to make regarding IMF leadership. The mess it has made collectively of its finances has removed its credibility and "moral authority."

Halligan is also upset over the idea that the new leader of the IMF might be what he calls a "politician." Halligan claims the IMF "works properly" when it is taking an adversarial role and "banging political heads." The IMF must be seen as "tough – even unreasonably tough … an IMF that colludes with the political classes isn't enacting reform. It is simply helping the politicians bury their mistakes and kick any problems into the long grass where they will fester." Here's some more from the article:

The IMF should be respected – even feared. It is for the politicians to stand up and face the political music – explaining to their electorates why harsh actions are needed and why nations can't go on living beyond their means. Perhaps the most dangerous type of politician to run the Fund is a politician still hankering after high office. Strauss-Kahn, of course, was using the post and the influence it bestowed over trillions of dollars of bail-out cash, as a platform for a French presidential bid. As such, he turned the IMF into a soft-credit society for the eurozone's periphery nations, holding the single-currency together for the benefit of his Franco-German friends.

Strauss-Kahn's continued insistence on "just one more bail-out", rather than forcing Greece, Portugal and the rest to face up to genuine debt-restructuring, also made sure that the losses stayed with plebian taxpayers, rather than being shifted on to Europe's banks. He could have called in the favour, no doubt, when the need came to finance his campaign for the ultimate prize. It was not to be for Strauss-Kahn, of course. But what is to stop Lagarde following the same route? …

Running the IMF, now more than ever, requires economic expertise, massive intellectual authority and a willingness to be deeply unpopular – particularly, if you are a European, on your home turf. The emerging economies need to stop moaning, put their differences aside, and set their combined authority behind a world-class economic policy-maker to run the IMF. Such nations should be doing everything in their power to wrestle control of this pivotal institution from a Western political elite that is not only intellectually inadequate, but which seems determined to compound the world's economic problems …

Halligan is convinced that Lagarde has her own unfortunate political ambitions. As we can see from the above excerpt, he seeks a person of "massive intellectual authority" – and believes that person can only be found in the developing world.

We wonder exactly why somebody of massive intellectual authority would want to run the IMF in the first place. Anyone with massive intellectual authority would realize that the IMF is a dysfunctional organization that was constructed to increase Western dominance over the developing world, not to "help" countries recover from excessive debt.

The IMF is part of a fiscal and monetary tag team with the World Bank. The World Bank encourages dysfunctional, developing-world leaders to borrow more than their countries can withstand. Once the money has been wasted or spirited away, the country is effectively broke and the big western banks call for the IMF to step in.

The IMF's solutions are always the same. They tend to crush the middle class by reducing public subsidies and hiking taxes. Then they put tremendous pressure on remaining government officials to sell off a country's prime assets under the pretext that these are assets that need to be privatized. In truth these are mostly monopoly assets, like water and electrical facilities – and thus even privatization does not remove the monopoly status. One has just transferred a public monopoly into private hands. The profits are tremendous.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion (we won't) that the EU acted as the World Bank when it came to Europe's PIGS. These southern countries were given tremendous amounts of cash to supposedly make them financially healthy – or healthy enough to join the EU. But in addition to outright grants were numerous huge loans that were presented to all these countries during the faux-boom of the 2002-2007, many no doubt with EU cooperation. Now that the bill has come due, the EU is cynically calling on the IMF to ensure these countries make their payments.

Why isn't it working this time? Why have the protests only become stronger and deeper, threatening to tear apart the entire EU? We've presented the idea that the Internet itself has helped mobilize people in a way that Western eliteswere not expecting. Instead of crushing European middle classes and strengthening the EU, Eurocrats are discovering they may fundamentally weakened it and the euro besides.

The IMF, of course was supposed to play an integral role in this slaughter of the PIGS. The IMF is always involved in such pillaging. Of course, Anglosphere elites would much rather have the developing countries clamoring to "get in" than ignoring such institutions or seeking to remove themselves. This may yet happen however if the US continues to insist on its 17 percent control of the IMF.

Conclusion: Times are changing substantially, as are the attitudes of developing countries. The control that Western elites expected to exercise over these institutions is coming increasingly into question. Ironically, if the West does give up control and allow these institutions to play their putative role, they will become fairly useless to their creators. They will also be seen, increasingly, as the ineffective entities they actually are. For this reason, the US is not likely to cede any part of its 17 percent. Lagarde may get her dream post, but she may soon come to regret it

 

Queen Worried About Empire’s Meltdown

Monday, May 30, 2011 – by Staff Report

  

Queen Elizabeth IIDowning Street to bring in a constitutional expert to advise on the process of staging a referendum on Scottish independence and the dismantling of the union in the event of a yes vote. – London Sunday Times

Dominant Social Theme: An extremely grave situation. The Anglo realm, which is the fundament of civilization, is toppling …

Free-Market Analysis: Hey, are we right on schedule? Even Queen Elizabeth is worried. Say, about time! It's only taken 2,000 years if we are correct in our reading of history – as the British empire is at least a remnant of the Roman Empire (later the "Holy Roman Empire"), though some would trace its antecedents back to Babylon and beyond. The Hindus track these episodes in chunks of 12,000 years or so, and apparently we're on that cusp as well. All we know is that the Internet seems

The Queen has expressed concern that she might be the last monarch of the UK and has asked Downing Street to keep her informed. The Queen has signalled in a private meeting with David Cameron her concern at the prospect of the break-up of the United Kingdom. The monarch met the prime minister at Buckingham Palace after the Scottish National party's victory in the Holyrood elections this month to discuss the potential implications for the monarchy. It is understood that palace officials askedto be making a mess of Anglo-American power-elite plans.

If you read this modest newspaper you're surely aware that the previous collapse of the British Empire World War II was a kind of phony one; part of the disinformation practiced by the Anglo-American elite that seeks to run the world and does run a good chunk of it. The powers-that-be merely substituted Money Power for colonial rule. Economic clout took over from military dominance.

This sort of process has been ongoing not for years or decades but centuries. The elites took a step back after the arrival of the Gutenberg press made being a king or queen a dangerous occupation. That was seemingly when the idea of "democracy" was invented. Much easier to let the common people vote and then merely give the winner his orders rather than give orders to the whole country out in the open.

Now even this subtle strategy is running into trouble. As the only popular, on-line publication in the world dedicated to explaining the dominant social themes of the elite within the context of the Internet Reformation (presenting the Internet as a modern Gutenberg press) our brain trust of elves and gnomes believed that the worldwide changes we were analyzing would take up 20 years or more. How did we come to this calculation? Hah, we guessed!

We figured the Gutenberg press itself took something like 100 years to spark the Renaissance and Reformation; today, we decided, the timeframe of sociopolitical and economic changes had collapsed a good deal. Twenty years sounded about right. If we date the growing impact of the Internet from 1990, we are exactly at 20 years now and thus it may be no coincidence that the world of Anglo-American Money Power is beginning to tremble, or at least to vibrate.

Did you believe, dear reader, even two years ago, that the West would be scrambling to leave Afghanistan with its conquest of the Taliban unfinished? That there are by last count (thanks, Max Keiser) nearly SIX HUNDRED separate uprisings and regime changes ongoing in the world today? That the fate of the euro and even the EU would be in serious question? And that the Queen herself would be concerned over an imminent break-up of her empire?

We've been at this kind of reporting for some ten years now, ever since we decided around 2000 that the business cycle was turning and that fiat money would be on the way out and gold and silver on the way in. (Yes, it was that obvious to us because we follow Austrian business-cycle economics as do others who figured it out at the same time.) But we've learned a lot since then because we've been in the position of carefully charting what's going on. We've been able to see day by day, sometimes hour by hour for ten years how the powers-that-be have reacted to the renewed strength of the hard-money business cycle.

It hasn't been pretty. From our point of view, the Anglo-American elite pulled out all the stops to combat what they believed was coming. They set up the foundation for war (Iraq and Afghanistan in particular), created false flag mechanisms (WikiLeaks?), built up phony enemies (Al Qaeda?), crashed the global economy (2008 financial crisis?), and even now may be working on food and water shortages.

But this is nothing new. Anglosphere Money Power seems to have been engaged in a conspiracy to create a New World Order for up to 300 years, with increasing urgency in the past 100. When we sit down and analyze this conspiracy, it is hard not to come to the conclusion that the 20th century was a time of great gains for Western banking elites.

Increasingly it seems to us (via documented evidence) that Western Anglo powers were behind most of the major wars of the 20th including the Cold War. These wars were created to consolidate power domestically throughout the West in order to build support for international agencies (the UNIMFWorld Bank, etc.) that would provide the backbone of a formal WORLD government, which was the elite banking families' great dream.

In the mid 20th century, the elites apparently created Israel to serve as a further fulcrum of tension and disarray in the heart of the Islamic Middle East. The plan, so far as we can tell, was to pacify and westernize the Islamic tribes by creating tension and war that would justify more and more Western interference in the area.

This is the way the elites have always expanded their sphere of influence – via civil tension leading to war that then leads to "international" (read Western) involvement. The Anglosphere elites are doing the same thing in Libya and Syria today. It is a simple plan and like most of what the City of London inflicts upon the world, it doesn't really change from one generation to the next.

In 1971, the Anglosphere elites created the world's first fully fiat reserve currency – the US dollar – by instructing their Saudi surrogates to accept payment for oil only in dollars. Since this meant that every other country in the world had to hold dollars to purchase oil, the US could print as much money as it needed to fund whatever global adventures it wished to undertake. It used much of its windfall to further build up the military. Eventually, this money-printing capacity helped undermine – or at least provide the justification for the collapse of – the Soviet Union.

Everything was going well for the elites in the late 20th century. Russia was westernizing, Israel's power was advancing and world government was gradually moving forward as well with the expansion of the West's various globalist instrumentalities. Even the dollar was holding steady. But then came the Internet.

The Internet and 9/11 proved to be two great fulcrums generating haste and urgency for those who dwell in the City of London. Hitherto, these plans in our opinion had been much concealed – for 50 years at least. But starting on 9/11, the real nature of the Conspiracy showed itself like the smile of the Cheshire cat or a disembodied grimace.

Yes, hard as it may be to fathom, the old men of the City likely gathered round their big conference table deep in the heart of Londinium and seemingly began to plot a takeover of the world with renewed urgency. Perhaps they were worried about the Internet and a coming worldwide communication's revolution. Perhaps they understood that the business cycle had turned and that the fiat dollar would lose power against the gold and silver they hated and yet clutched ever-more tightly.

Perhaps it was a confluence of all these things. But the solution was the same. They would use war as they did after the advent of the Gutenberg press; they would use revolution, too as they did then. (The French Revolution comes to mind). And they would use American power and military might to project their global-spanning interests.

What did they decide? That they would promote a phony war on terror to justify the renewed military push meant to further consolidate the world to create an ever-closer world government? That they would create more chaos in the Middle East this way and would generate increased tension via Israel? That they would push for a closer European Union, a more powerful IMF and perhaps even a world currency by purposefully inflicting financial chaos to redouble the power of their fear-based dominant social themes – global warmingpeak oilmonetary inflation and chaos, etc. – to justify global governance?

This has been the story of the past decade. In some sense it seems as though it is a most conspiratorial retelling! Nonetheless, conspiratorial or not, somewhere around 2005-2006 things seem to have started to go wrong. The Internet itself – like the Gutenberg press before it – began to play havoc, first with the power elite's dominant social themes (by exposing them) and then even with Anglo-American military power. Global warming, peak oil, central banking itself all came under attack. It was not as it once was.

And that brings us to the Queen and her concerns in 2011. She is concerned mostly about Scotland, apparently, which is about to remove itself from the United Kingdom that is made up of N. Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. This does not cause the larger New Commonwealth to crumble and people have little idea how large it is – consisting of such countries as India, Australia and Canada plus a variety of smaller nations and island-states. Put all of it together and you have a mass of land of people far larger than anything else that currently exists.

Is it merely a paper Federation? Not from what we can tell. We've been told specifically of a certain level of "fear" that lingers to a greater or lesser degree among the disparate ruling classes as regards crossing the monarchy and those behind it. Beyond that, there are the "shared values" of "representative democracy" and "opposition to racism" and other fundaments of the Commonwealth.

Yet, as the Queen looks around, she is concerned. The hive mind buzzes busily, disseminating Internet information and subsequent resistance throughout the world. In Afghanistan the US is losing to the Pashtun/Taliban and Pakistan's leaders have begun turning away from the West and toward China. The youth revolutions that seemed like such a good idea months ago have rebounded brutally against the West. Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Bahrain and even Saudi Arabia have become destabilized.

Surely Money Power did not intend for all this. Food scarcity and economic unrest were in some sense to be inflicted. But the intention was to create misery and CONTROLLABLE rebellion. It seems things are not going altogether to plan. Libya and Syria have been marked for regime change, but even here, the work proceeds laboriously – and in the case of Libya, the "rebels" have already indicated their revolution is an Islamic one and the West is not welcome! They have appeared on various news programs to state this over and over with increasing emphasis.

If Saudi Arabia topples, the dollar reserve currency topples with it. Thus, the end of Anglo-American hegemony may be short months or years away, not decades. This is difficult to fathom. Yet human beings are tribal creatures – and the trends and information that the Internet is spreading may be no more opposable than the ideas of the Renaissance or Reformation.

The Renaissance was entirely an anomalous event. The Reformation less so, but it soon evidently and obviously spun out of control. We think we see the same sort of events occurring today. CIA sponsored youth movements have spun out of control in Egypt and Tunisia. What is worse is that they have spread throughout the Middle East and into the EU, destabilizing Spain and Greece and probably other Southern PIGS as well.

The idea of course is that such destabilization (including depression and wider war) will usher closer global governance – and we have proposed this possibility. Yet this is not the way things are necessarily headed. Unlike after World War II, the great powers are not venerated and their hyper-globalist solutions (far better understood today) will not necessarily be welcomed. This has no doubt occurred to the elites. It must be depressing.

The Queen is said to be concerned about Scotland, but she is a tough and cultured woman, bred to rule. Like the great mafia dons of the 20th century, she has elevated saying nothing to a kind of art form and believes her son Charles has no knack for it. Prince William, meanwhile, is said to want to do away with the monarchy. No wonder the Queen believes she may be the last of her line.

Western Money Power of course remains tremendously forceful, and apparently has tens or hundreds of trillions of dollars at its command. But the issue here isnot money but power (as it always has been). The Internet in our view is unprecedented (in the modern era anyway); and it may be there is no direct and immediate solution to its impact. The great armies and gulags that the West – especially America – has assembled to counteract what is evidently and obviously taking place are like the wind blowing over an open plain. The grasses bow but rise again.

Today, the American military is holding naval exercises with the Gulf States; but who are these exercises aimed at? The poor people of these states have no armies, no ships, no weapons. And yet when change comes, it will come from within. It will come from the power of an idea – or ideas – and not even a nuclear deterrence will help.

The Queen, wise, elderly and brutal, sees these disturbances. They have already invaded Europe and are headed to Britain and then to America, the "City's" hammer. American elites have been preparing for sometime, of course. Prison camps stand silently, starkly ready – or so Jesse Ventura apparently discovered. The police have been militarized, along with the FBI and CIA and a dozen other spy agencies busily monitoring the cyberspace for evidences of unrest. Yes, preparations and more preparations go on and on…

But what is coming is likely no 20th century unrest. It is not going to be like the Veteran's march on Washington during the Depression (which was successfully combated). It will not be alleviated in our view even by a world war. This is the sort of unrest that convulsed Europe after the advent of the Gutenberg press. But stronger still. A Renaissance or Reformation on steroids. People know too much, or at least are beginning to learn. And they are angry. The central banking economy is a sham and globalism – more of the same – provides no answers.

Twenty years ago it was impossible to conceive of technology that could purvey complex and detailed information to billions at once with the hands-on delicacy of individual instruction. Today such an impossibility is a reality. DARPA created it and two "Steves" in a garage unexpectedly built a personal computer that turned a military network into a worldwide communication facility. Ah, if only it were possible to go back in time! If only DARPA had a single head to wrench!

But it is too late. Hitler's example (apparently paid for by Wall Street) holds no relevant lessons in today's Internet society. State propaganda undermined by the Internet may not produce the required results. Economic dysfunction might only eventually undermine the workings of the state itself. The penitentiary society might not hold. Even the nation's own security police forces could sooner or later be undermined (as happened in the USSR and East Germany); their pensions reduced or eliminated; their power drained; their moral sapped and then destroyed by what they are required to do and what people have come to think about it.

Conclusion: Sound farfetched? One can see the forces building, and there is historical precedent: the queen seems worried. She sits in her palace listening. She hears the wind. It is a billion voices, chanting.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Do not under estimate the power over the people that the elites have. We are still a totally divided country when it comes to what is, and what is not freedom. With internet education, the political dissidents are coming out of the woodwork in mass, and what was once accepted as normal political bullshit is now becoming a target for annihilation. Having reached a level of understanding the dissidents will accept nothing less than live free or die. The elites will willingly comply.

ARE YOU WILLING TO CONTINUE BEING A SLAVE?

The first wildcat well drilled in Alaska was sunk just south of present-day Anchorage on the shores of Cook Inlet in 1896. The discovery well was a dry hole. It produced a modest amount of oil, but at levels insufficient to justify development. Six years later a gusher was drilled at Katalla on the Gulf of Alaska by a British businessman. The well came in on Sept. 18, 1902 with a gusher that shot 200 feet into the air. A refinery was built in the Katalla Oil Field by the Amalgamated Development Company which bought out the Brit's interests. In 1920 with the passage of the Minerals Leasing Act, the St. Elias Oil Co., which now owned the oil field, sold out to the Chilkat Oil Company. The sale of Alaskan Territory oil to to US oil refiners dwindled to almost nothing during the Roaring 20s with the discovery of vast new oil fields in Oklahoma and Texas. On Christmas Day, 1933 a gas leak reportedly caused an explosion that destroyed not only the Chilkat oil refinery but the power plant that fueled electricity to the Katalla settlement. In the 30 years the Katalla oil field existed, it produced a total of 154,000 barrels of oil—eequal to about 16% of one day's production from the North Slope oilfields today. Oil. Natural gas. Coal. Gold. Silver. Copper. Uranium. And scores of lesser known minerals that play a key role in the development of the electronic age. Mineral wealth. Right under our feet.

 

On Tuesday, March 2, 2010, The Washington Times reported receiving a secret 21-page Obama Administration memo that revealed plans by the federal government to seize several million acres of land in several Western States. Since that memo was issued last year, the amount of land being targeted for seizure by the Obama Administration quickly escalated from 10 million to 220 million acres. The document, marked "Internal Draft—Not For Release" named 14 different lands Obama coould close to any form of development by unilaterally designating them as "national monuments" under the much abused Antiquities Act of 1906 (Public Law 16 USC 431-433) which was legislated to protect prehistoric Indian ruins and artifacts in the American West.

The Antiquities bill was proffered in 1906 by Congressman John F. Lacy, Chairman of the House Committee on Public Lands to allow the President, by Executive Order, to restrict the use of public lands already owned by the federal government. While Lacy expected those restricted areas to be small—like an old Indian burial ground here or a prehistoric Indian village there—that's not what happened. Or, you might say, the government—growing greeddier by the year—simply "grew into" the land grab they now use to steal the weealth of America from the people for the self-appointed caretakers of America…the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business.

 

Social Progressive President Teddy Roosevelt, who saw the Antiquities Act as the perfect devise to arbitrarily seize millions of acres of land containing countless billions of dollars of mineral wealth for the federal government, even though the bill specifically stated that the national monuments the Act was designed to protect "…are to be confined to the smallest area compatible with the proper care and management of the objects to be protected." Congress gave the President the power to create national monuments by Executive Order to quickly protect archeological finds from being pillaged and decimated before Congress could enact legislation to protect them. The president who signed the Antiquities Act into law on June 8, 1906, Teddy Roosevelt, was the first President to abuse it. Where Lacy and the US Congress tried to save an archeological dig in Iowa, Roosevelt strutted his newfound power and created a 1,346.91 acre national monument called Devil's Tower in the Black Hills in Crock County, Wyoming.

 

The power presidents possess under the Antiquities Act of 1906 was twice reduced. The first time was in 1943 when Franklin D. Roosevelt caved in to a request by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. When Rockefeller and his family visited Jackson Hole, Rockefeller decided if something drastic wasn't done, what he saw as a historic treasure would become overdeveloped and converted into a tawdry tourist site. Rockefeller purchased as many tracts of land as he could around Jackson Hole and donated them to the federal government. Taking his cue from Rockefeller, Roosevelt issued an Executive Order and created the Jackson Hole National Monument, angering Jackson Hole residents and State legislators alike because there was absolutely no national interest in preserving Jackson Hole for posterity. It was merely the fetish of the richest man in America who wanted to create a national monument for his family to enjoy.

 

Federal legislation was written to de-establish the Jackson Hole National Monument. FDR vetoed the bill. In 1950 Harry S. Truman signed a bill that de-established the Jackson Hole National Monument, but instead of returning control of the land to the State of Wyoming, Truman incorporated it into the newly created 310,000 acre Grand Teton National Park.

 

The second time was on Jan. 25, 1980 when, pushed by environmentalists who were bankrolled by banking and oil financier and oil mogul David Rockefeller, Jimmy Carter used the Antiquities Act to create the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to prevent anyone from exercising thousand of oil leases along the North Slope of Alaska.

 

With a slash of his pen, Carter privatized 56 million acres of public land in the name of the federal government which has now been confirmed to contain more untapped oil wealth than that which has been found in all existing producing US wells in the lower 48. Anytime the princes of industry want to activate the oil leases they own along the North Slope all they will do is swap worthless land elsewhere for the most valuable land in the United States—but only when they are ready to tap intoo what was, in 1980, the world's largest known oil reserves. Congress responded to Carter's land grab on behalf of the Seven Sisters by passing the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservative Act which now requires congressional approval of the seizing of more than 5,000 acres of land under the Antiquities Act.

 

Two presidents after Carter created national monuments as political payoffs. Both presidents gave away far more than 5,000 acres. On Sept. 18, 1996 President Bill Clinton scribbled a Presidential Proclamation and stole 1.7 million acres (2,700 square miles) of Utah and Arizona from the people of the United States, creating the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. While Clinton used the fact that several dinosaur fossils were found in the Grand Staircase-Escalante area over the years to justify creating a national monument, in reality, his land seizure was a political payoff to People's Republic of China-connected Indonesian banker and businessman Mochtar Riady. Riady wanted to corner the global low sulfur anthracite coal market. The problem is, the US and Canada hold 38.2% of the world's coal. South Asia has 8%. To corner the anthracite coal market, Riady needed to shut down the anthracite coal market in the United States.

 

The nation's largest reserves of anthracite coal in the United States are found in Pennsylvania and Utah. Clinton created the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to close the largest anthracite coal field in the nation along the Kaiparowitz Plateau in Kane County, Utah. The Kentucky-based Andalux Resources coal company held leases on the 3,400 acre coal field which contains about 7 billion tons of low sulfur anthracite coal worth $1.5 trillion in 1996 dollars. When Clinton nationalized 1/7th of Utah, he killed 1,000 jobs and about $50 million in payroll dollars per year going into Kane County. Working class Utahans lost their livelihood, but Clinton paid his expected quid pro quo to a foreigner who could not legally donate money to Clinton's political campaign.

 

When Clinton made his decision to nationalized 1/7th of the State of Utah he did not speak with Republican Utah governor Mike Leavitt nor anyone else in the State. He did not convey his intentions to US Senators Orrin Hatch or Robert Bennett, nor to any of Utah's three Congressmen. They found out from a news report published in the Washington Post on Sept. 7, 1996. All flags in the affected areas of the State flew at half mast. The residents of Escalante hung mannequins of Bill Clinton and Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt in effigy. Clinton's land seizure became the first "national monument" to be managed by the Bureau of Land Management rather than the National Park Service.

 

Congress approved Jimmy Carter's theft of a chunk of Alaska to prevent the drilling of cheap oil. But the GOP-controlled Congress did not legalize Clinton's theft of 1.7 million acres of America on the pretext of saving dinosaur bones. Nor did the Democratically-controlled Congress legalize George W. Bush's seizure of 13,451 square miles of seabeds in the Rose Atoll and 85,607 square miles in the Marianas Trenches Archipelago to protect the seven islands and atolls in the Pacific Remote Islands Monument.

 

Creating a US National Monument from the Marianas Trench Archipelago to protect its seabeds in international waters from "destruction" is quite a stretch based on the terms of the Antiquities Act of June 8, 1906, Stat 225, 16 USC 431. When Bush-43 announced the Marianas Trench Archipelago National Monument, he was met with fierce resistance from the National Marine Manufacturer's Association because, in their view, the Bush-43 Executive Order creating the national monument bypassed public comment and peer review.

 

While Bush's Executive Order may have been a little fuzzy about how much of the Marianas Trench Archipelago National Monument was actually US territory and how much was international water, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which went into force on Nov. 16, 1994 after being signed by Bill Clinton, allows member nations who had the power to do so to enforce, on behalf of the world's largest environmental groups, exclusive marine zones. The seabed regulations created a bizarre regulatory regime that worked for Bush since what Bush was doing had nothing to do with protecting seabeds, but protecting what was under them.

 

In the seabeds around the Marianas Trench and Rose Atoll National Monuments, geologists have identified hard minerals like phosphate, abyssal manganese, ferromanganese, cobalt, sulfide, olivine, feldspar, clinopyroxene, opaline, silica and pyrite as well as hydrothermal deposits of gold and silver—and the world's richestt deposits of baryite (barite). In addition, under those seabeds is the world's largest oil and natural gas reserves. Preliminary estimates suggest the oil and natural gas reserves will dwarf the combined reserves found under the North Slope of Alaska and in the Arabian Peninsula—combined.

 

Today, once again, it's about oil. And once again, a new land grab is taking place. This time, the thief is Barack Obama and his Secretary of the Interior, former Sen. Ken Salazar [D-CO]. Confidential draft documents from the Interior Department were leaked last year, identifying some 13 million acres were being considered for protection under the Antiquities Act. Obama, like Bush-43 and Clinton, has no intention of seeking the blessings of Congress.

 

Those areas included parts of Alaska, Arizona, northern California, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada and Washington State. Millions of acres of public lands will be closed to the public. They will be off limits to hunting, fishing, camping, riding—or hiking. Much of today's domestic oil and natural gas are produced in the affected States. Likely added to the list will be parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming.

 

At a time when the American people are seeking to pressure Congress into reducing the nation's dependency on foreign oil, Obama—like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, iss creating impediments to America's ability to develop new domestic sources for oil and natural gas that will allow us to stop buying oil and natural gas from those who are determined to weaken the fiber of America. In order to accomplish the latest slight of hand to steal the wealth of America from the American people, the latest land grab works this way:

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar just performed the first phase of the Obama Administration's smoke and mirrors sleight-of-hand, issuing a Secretarial Order—3310—assuminging mythical authority he does not constitutionally or legally possess, and through the issuance, establishing a new "land designation" of "Wild Lands" as a distinctly different classification than "Wilderness Areas" (designated by Congress). In point of fact, only Congress has that authority. Obama does not possess it, thus, he cannot transfer authority he does not constitutionally possess to a subordinate.

 

Secretarial Order 3310 will require the Bureau of Land Management to inventory all lands within their jurisdiction in order to ascertain which have "wild lands" characteristics. According to the Order, the Bureau must conduct such an inventory before it can authorize any project that might impair the "wild lands" characteristics of any land considered for mineral exploration or other forms of development. It is then that the definitions of what constitutions "wild lands" characteristics gets fuzzy.

 

And even though the Congressional designation of a national monument mandates that it cannot consume more than 5,000 acres, Secretarial Order 3310 says that "wild lands" areas "…must contain at least 5,000 acres of contiguous roadless Bureau of Land Management land, except that it may be smaller if it is adjacent to other federal lands which have been formally determined to have wilderness or potential wilderness value or…such lands included designated wilderness, BLM wilderness study areas, US Fish & Wildlife service areas proposed for wilderness designation, US Forest Service wilderness study areas, or areas of recommended wilderness, and National Park Service areas recommended or proposed for designation." Second, the land must contain "naturalness," meaning it must appear to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, and any work of human beings must be substantially unnoticeable." And finally, according to Secretarial Order 3310, the wild lands to be confiscated by fiat must present "opportunities for solitude." Say, what? Just in case the land about to be stolen by the government does not meet the first two criteria, I guess if you feel "solitude" when you see it, it qualifies as "wild lands" even though it doesn't qualify based on its physical attributes.

 

PART 2 of 2

 

 Because the reality of these national "monuments" is not the wealth of their majesty in the eyes of the beholders, but the wealth under the feet of the beholders. When vast tracts are found to contain enough mineral wealth to impact the global cost of that commodity—like oil and natural gas—the princes of industry need to find a way too eliminate the total sum of that newly found wealth from the "recorded" global inventory of available oil reserves. When it cannot be harvested, according to the rules established by the global elite, it technically isn't available. That is why the bureaucratic oil and gas beancounters insist that Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves with 2,980 billion barrels, Saudi Arabia with 2,670 billion barrels, Canada with 1,790 billion barrels and the United States with 210 billion barrels. According to the oil bean counters, 56% of all known oil reserves are in the Muslim Mideast, with 16% in North America—with most of that found in Canada (with Alaska construed in those estimates as "Canada"). The three most recent oil and natural gas finds are in the United States, Alaska and along the Marianas Trench. The single largest oil find in the history of man is at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. That oil has been claim staked by Exxon-Mobil in a joint IPO with China Oil. But the largest oil and natural gas deposits found thus far are in the United States. The known oil reserves along the North Slope of Alaska and throughout the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, [ANWR] —and in areas about to be seized by the Dept. of the Interior— would supply 100% of the industrial and consumer needs of the United States for over 300 years without the United States buying one barrel of oil or one cubic foot of natural gas from any other nation on Earth.

 

The princes of industry and the barons of banking want the American people to believe we are dependent on foreign oil because we don't have enough domestic oil to survive without a little oil from our friends. That, of course is a blatant, bald-face lie that only a politician could spew with a straight face to justify buying oil from our enemies. Taking the oil under the continent's "national parks" and "national monuments" into consideration, the oil reserves in North America exceed the oil reserves in the Mideast.

 

And since the other lie, spewed by the oil industry long before Sinclair Oil put a dinosaur on their trademark logo, is that crude oil is a "fossil fuel" created by decayed dinosaurs and rotted fauna has now been proved to be a myth. We know that oil is not a finite resource. It is manufactured deep in the bowels of the Earth by the planet. Peak oil was a hypothesis formulated by Dr. Marion King Hubert, a Shell oil geologist. The myth of "peak oil" originated in the 1950s by Hubert who calculated that, based on the known global reserves (at that time), that the oil wells in the non-OPEC countries would dry up between 2010 and 2015, and the oil reserves in the OPEC nations (the Muslim countries and Venezuela) would begin to dry up around 2030. Clearly that never happened because oil is not a finite resource. It self-replenishes from deep in the bowels of the Earth. Yet the oil industry, which has all the money they need to perpetuate the myth, continues to perpetuate the myth. Because the oil industry privately understands that oil is manufactured by the planet itself, deep within the bowels of Earth, that 's why the Russians have been sinking 30,000 to 40,000 feet deep wells for the last 30 years.

 

But even though the planet has disproved Hubert's theory—which is still known as Hubert's Peak—calling oil a finite fossil fuel still works for the Seven Sisters because that helps the oil industry drive up the price of crude oil without too many repercussions from lawmakers. Oil is one of the most plentiful resources on Earth. Left to the free market, oil would be $20 per barrel—or less. That's what happens under the law of supply and demand.

 

Which is why the oil industry needed a little help from their friends to remove the excess availability of oil from the "global inventory." How best to accomplish that? In the United States? Convert oil lands into national parks or national monuments. In fact, in Salazar's guidelines for converting "Wild Lands" into "managed lands," mandates that any mineral wealth under the lands seized must be withdrawn from mineral entry. The lands must be closed to leasing, or allowing leasing under special circumstances with a special waiver. Mineral material sales are excluded.

 

Exclude commercial permits for commercial or personal-use wood cutting. In other words, the designation of "Wild Lands" will inhibit the ability of independent oil explorers to search, for or sink test wells in this growing number of designated areas, at a time when common sense dictates that we remove all barriers to domestic oil exploration, domestic oil drilling and increased oil refining. And on top of that, we need to repeal every nonsensical law on the books that requires—or encourages with a monetary award—converting food sources to energy when we need to keep food affordable and plentiful.

 

Placing more and more public land off limits to oil development specifically to prevent independent drillers from harvesting the oil this nation desperately needs is not only ludicrous, those in Congress who have allowed it to happen need to be removed from office by impeachment or recall and place on trial in federal court for malfeasance of office. Presidential Executive Orders, Presidential Proclamations, Presidential Decision Directives are not binding as law on anyone—not even thee employees of the Executive Branch. They are "advisories" from the boss of the Executive Branch to his employees. Nothing more. The President of the United States has no legislative or judicial authority under the Constitution. He can't write law. He can't adjudicate punishment for violating laws. And, more important, Executive Branch bureaucrats who are elected by no one have no authority whatsoever by the stretch of anyone's imagination, to "write law." Congress writes the laws. All of them. No other body in the US government—not even the federal court system—has the constitutional prerogative to write law. The judiciary weighs the application of law, and has the authority to vacate a law, but they lack the legal prerogative to rewrite them to make them "fit" the evolving needs of society—even though they do it all the time. Executive Orders and Secretarial Orders, in other words, are just so much "who shot John" unless Congress enacts the presidential or secretarial wish list into law. That generally does not happen because the wish list is usually something members of Congress would be fired for if they enacted it.

 

The question is, why is Congress—on both sides of the aisle—not screaming in a voice loud enough to be heard on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue for the latest Obama land grab? It is, after all, their power Obama has usurped. And this at a time when Congress should be reducing its dependence on foreign oil. With no one in Congress publicly complaining, no one is sounding the alarm. Nor is the media in the United States talking about a new peer-reviewed paper published by Swedish geophysicist Nils-Axel Morner that warns the world that between 2040-2050 we will be in a new major "solar minimum"—a new Little Ice Age like the one the world experienced between 1350 AD and 1850 AD.

 

If you recall, the world is theoretically moving away from oil, gas and coal because, according to Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth, "fossil fuels" cause global warming. So, as we continue to "board-up" America's oil, coal and natural gas industries, the social progressive watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) who control policy in the United States, have succeeded in perpetuating the global warming myth to such a degree that the truth about global cooling never makes it to your morning newspaper or TV's evening news.

 

Even though, since the embarrassing UN Summit On Global Warning during a series of blizzards in 2009 that took place in Copenhagen, Denmark that kept scores of global warming attendees from reaching the conference, the eco-wackos now refer to global warming as climate change as they pretend their computer models that show the world is heating up when it is actually cooling are still correct by blaming the newest findings that the world is now cooling on—you guessed it—global warming.

 

That not only justifies Cap & Trade regulations which penalize the industrial world for global warming—which specifically is caused by solar flares on the Sun—but it justifies using taxpayer dollars to fund private companies (donors to the campaigns of Congressmen, Senators and Presidents) to find alternatives to "fossil fuel" energy sources as the government engages in the most massive land grab in the history of mankind. As the Obama Administration speeds up the land grab in the American West, and erases known oil and gas reserves from the US inventory, it replaces natural resources with costly environmentally neutral pseudo-resources that will never live up to the promises of the same eco-alarmists who, in 1933 stole America's gold and silver-backed money and replaced it with worthless scrip. You would think, by this time, the American people would have realized that whenever government pulls out the walnut shells, the politicians are about to steal real wealth and replace it with something very costly, and very artificial. It will always cost the consumer more and deliver less. For example, the latest environmental energy scheme that is supposed to replace fossil fuel energy (now safely tucked away under the mantle of environmental correctness) is the US government is partially subsidizing a project through an Australian company, Enviro-Mission, which has a contract to supply alternate energy to the Southern California Public Power Authority.

 

Enviro-Mission is building two 2,400 solar towers in western Arizona, between the towns of Parker and Quartzsite in La Paz County. The solar tower will heat air in a 4-square mile greenhouse and force it up the chimney where turbines will convert the heated air into electricity. The tower will use a 4-square mile greenhouse to heat the air and direct it into the concrete chimney. As the hot air rises, the chimney spins turbines to make electricity. Each tower will cost between $750 million to $1 billion dollars. To put the cost-benefit ratios in perspective natural gas energy plants cost $1,003 per kwh and coal plants cost , $3,167 per kwh to operate. The solar chimney? After all, it simply heats air and sends it up a chimney. The cost? $4,755 per kwh Fossil fuel plants operate at a peak capacity of about 90%. The solar chimney voltaic plants? At about 25%. Its 5-times as expensive as a natural gas energy plant, and only a quarter as efficient.

 

But the Land Grabbers who steal the oil, natural gas and coal because—in their view—it promotes global warming, are creating what will be a catastrophic problem in two to three decades as a new Little Ice Age reverses the open passages around Greenland and descends like the icy fingers of a glacial fist on North America and Northern Europe. At that time, billions of people, trying to survive what they thought was a prehistoric calamity, will cry out for cheap energy.

 

Only, it won't exist. Fearful of global warming even as the planet cools, the watermelons of the world (politicians and environmentalists who are green on the outside and communist red on the inside) will scramble to find more ineffective alternative sources of energy, expanding the conversion of food crops into energy sources as the new third world in the northern hemispheres of America and Europe cries for relief from the rapidly escalating price of grain, and the diminishing supply of gasoline. But the left, which still believes in the Flat Earth Theory, also apparently still believes the sun revolves around Earth. The left is still equally convinced that Hubert's Peak is real, and that the world' diminishing supply of crude has passed Hubert's Hump.

 

When the princes of industry are convinced that the oil in the Mideast, in South America, Southeast Asia, the former Soviet Union and its former "satellite-stands" have depleted their oil reserves, they will swap the US government wetlands in Georgia, Florida, or Mississippi for oil or natural gas-rich lands in Arizona, Montana or Alaska. You see, the government's Land Grab is really a land swap that will take place sometime down the road when the princes of industry and barons or banking and business are ready to take back the world's most important commodity at a time when our enemies no longer possess either oil or natural gas. The only problem is, that day will never come because our planet still manufactures "fossil fuel" faster than we can use it. No thanks to the dinosaurs.

How the City of London Controls World Power …

Saturday, May 21, 2011 – by Staff Report

What happened in the heart of Greater London in 1694 under the direction of King William III of the House of Orange? Well, that would be when King William privatized the Bank of England, established the City of London, and turned control of England's money over to an elite group of international bankers.

Like Vatican City, London City (not to be confused with Greater London) is a privately owned corporation operating under its own flag, with its own constitution and free from the legal constraints that govern the rest of us. And it was King William III in 1694 who paved the way for a private cartel of international bankers (money elite) to embark on a plan of implementing world governance, albeit secretly (that is until now, thanks to the Internet Reformation).

Find out more about how the power elite has built their base of global infrastructure for controlling world economies, media, politics and religion. Watch this telling video presentation.

GET IT?

 

Here are 257 words that does what the elites multi billion dollar media industry has never done.

The world's financial crisis was the result of the West's central banking economy, which has been sponsored and expanded by a group of elite banking families mostly centered in the City of London, a private enclave for the impossibly wealthy. Central banks, perhaps owned and operated by these families (and one in particular), fix the price of money via interest rates and money-volume, and price-fixing inevitably creates economic distortions.

Economies, as a result, inflate wildly and then crash. Once this happens a few times over decades, the economies in question are so distorted that a final crash is inevitable. This is what happened in 2007-2008. The West's financial structure, swamped by trillions of dollars printed from nothing, became so distorted that no one could tell a real investment or profit-making company from a phony one. The world's economy as a result froze up. The dollar reserve system crashed and likely shall not recover.

Hopefully, the world will eventually return to some sort of commodity standard. If the fascists do not triumph, the end-result of the current pain shall be money competition. Let all kinds of money compete and the best shall emerge as the most useful currency. And what about Geithner? The Treasury Secretary, without explaining what actually happened, is indicating that the current system of money-price fixing is still in effect and sooner or later will cause another crash. The powers-that-be, rather than repairing the current system by allowing the free-market to operate are desperately puffing it up with yet more money-from-nothing. How predictable. How sad!

CALL FOR IMMEDIATE ARREST OF 5 SUPREME COURT JUSTICES FOR TREASON

THE FIVE THAT STAND AGAINST ALL AMERICANS, THE “MAFIA” JUDGES

 

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Five members of the Supreme Court declared that a “corporation” is a person, not a “regular person” but one above all natural laws, subject to no God, no moral code but one with unlimited power over our lives, a power awarded by judges who seem themselves as grand inquisitors empowered meant to hunt down all heretics who fail to serve their god, the god of money.

Their ruling has made it legal for foreign controlled corporations to flush unlimited money into our bloated political system to further corrupt something none of us trust and most of us fear.  The “corporation/person” that the 5 judges, the “neocon” purists, have turned the United States over to isn’t even American.  Our corporations, especially since our economic meltdown are owned by China, Russia and the oil sheiks along with a few foreign banks.  They don’t vote, pay taxes, fight in wars, need dental care, breathe air, drive cars or send children to school.  Anyone who thinks these things are people is insane.  Anyone who would sell our government to them is a criminal and belongs in prison.  There is nothing in the Constitution that makes this “gang of five” bribe sucking clowns above the law.  There is nothing in the Constitution that even mentions corporations much less gives them status equal to or greater than the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government.

The Supreme Court of the United States has no right to breathe human life into investment groups owned by terrorist sympathizers, foreign arms dealers or groups working for the downfall of the United States and everything we believe in, but 5 “justices” have done just that.  We now have a new government above our government, above our people, one above any law.   Five judges have created institutionalized gangsterism as the new form of government for the United States.No American soldier can ever go to war fighting for a Chinese hedge fund, a German bank or a Saudi Arabian fertilizer company.  Will our new debates in Congress be between members representing the opium warlords against the Columbian cartels?  Their cash, which long ago has infiltrated one major corporation or bank after another is now heading for your local representative.   How important do you think secure borders for America are for these new political “influencers?”

For years we complained about AIPAC, the Sierra Club, the NRA, trial lawyers, trade unions, NAM (National Association of Manufacturers) and the churches that got involved in politics.  Behind all of these were people, American citizens, and, on some occasions, Americans who fought for their country, raised kids here and were invested in the survival of America although they didn’t always act that way.  This was an American problem.  Now we aren’t even sure we have an America anymore.

Anyone who believes that a massive flood of corporate money into politics won’t throw control of both houses of Congress into the hands of the wealthy nations that are also our primary strategic enemies, you know the ones, the ones loaded with oil cash, the ones with 10 cent an hour labor and legal systems that  shoot first and ask questions later.  They just were told they can buy the United States, not just our government, but our military, and the lives of our soldiers.  They can now make our laws, raise our taxes, decide on our civil rights, where we can live, if we can own guns, how late we stay up, where and what we drive and, eventually, how we think.  The Supreme Court has given foreign owned corporations the eventual power to silence us all.

When a corporation commits a crime, nobody goes to jail.  When wars come, they don’t fight, they simply rake in cash.  When children are poisoned or workers are killed, they seldom even pay a fine.  However, when they want something, billions in tax money for “bail outs” or fat contracts or special laws, they have always gotten it.  It  has been a battle to control corporations for 140 years.  Sometimes the American people have lost, sometimes they have won.  Our greatest presidents are the ones who reined in corporate power and kept the influence of money over humanity in check.  Think of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy.

Without them we would be living in work camps, stuck at machines all day, our children at our sides.  We would be paid in beans and salt pork, dying at 40 in filth like people around the world who live in countries controlled by corporations.

Based on the justices that we want prosecuted being Reagan/Bush “conservatives” you would think this is a liberal/conservative issue.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Nothing less “conservative” has ever been done by a branch of our government.  There is nothing “conservative” about our Supreme Court going insane and abandoning our Constitution and making medical decisions, not to give life to a fetus, but to a bank account.

This is nothing but an extremely unAmerican and unpatriotic group of thieves believing that Americans had given up so many of their civil liberties in silence during the Global War on Terror scam that opening the “Pandora’s Box” of class conflict could now be done with nobody saying a word.  Their “corporate person” is now a Baron or Duke, the great landlords of the medieval period.  Americans are now destined for serfdom.  Their political and economic theories, what are they?  Is it conservatism or feudalism?

We are already burdened with a representative government that has tied itself to the money spigot because of the incredible cost of media exposure in campaigns.  People running for office in ancient Rome would purchase thousands of animals for slaughter in the arena.  Mass executions were staged as media events for political campaigns.  In fact, the arenas in every Roman city were built for that purpose, today replaced by television and the internet.  We thought we had changed since that time.  We were wrong.

The framers of the Constitution created the Supreme Court, the Electoral College and originally had Senators appointed, not elected, to protect the wealthy from having their money and land seized by the masses who would otherwise have controlled the government.  This was the 1780s.  The only “democracy” we knew about was ancient Athens, where the majority of the people living there were slaves.    27 Amendments later, including the Bill of Rights, we have worked to define justice and decency.  Generations have fought and died to keep life in our imperfect system from 1780.  Who would have thought that 5 people could destroy it all?

Political debate in America is sometimes extreme, often bordering on violence.  Feelings are high.  How many times have you heard people threaten to leave the country because “their America” no longer exists.  We know that few really mean it.  When faced with a real threat, no people on earth are to be feared like Americans.  When help is needed, no people on earth are to be trusted and relied on like Americans.  This is the pride we have in our country and ourselves.  We never agree on anything.  We aren’t supposed to, we are Americans.

Everything we built has been based on a balance, race, religion, ethnicity, social standing, political beliefs, regional interests, all striving and compromising to build something we are all secretly very proud of, something all of us are willing to fight for and many are.  Americans all agree on one thing, that our government in Washington is out of control and has been for some time.  We all have different ideas on this but agree on the fact itself.  We wonder where the politicians come from, men too often “less great” than those of the past, in fact, less great than average.  Decisions are continually made that most find puzzling and, in fact, are driven by a rotten underbelly of corruption and self interest.

Now, 5 members of the Supreme Court, people none of us voted for, a group that is answerable to no authority and, seemingly, no law or moral code, a group famous for immoderation, poor judgement and low personal integrity has, either through blindness, avarice or insanity clearly done something so malicious, so unjust and so utterly inconsistent with our Constitution that they, themselves, have become an “enemy of the people.”

What is their power?  What they have done is not within the scope of the authority given through the Constitution.  Their acts are outside the law, their acts are those of a conspiracy, their acts are meant to diminish our freedoms, our sacred institutions and even endanger our lives.  Typically, such acts are called crimes and those who commit them are criminals.

What could drive judges, albeit judges appointed with little thought as part of a cheap political ploy, to abandon any American constituency?  Corporations have no religion.  They care nothing for the unborn.  They have no allegiance to a flag, a family or any moral ethic.  They serve no person, owe no loyalty other than to stockholders, shadowy groups of Russian oligarchs, Chinese banks, corrupt dictators grown fat on the spoils of their people or the international consortium’s of bond and currency speculators who have, for decades, abandoned any economic law to build the ethereal “house of cards” we call the “world economy.”

The control of the American electoral process has been given to them.  No serving politician can survive now standing against them.  Years ago “they” bought our newspapers and our television networks.  Fact and truth became whatever they wanted us to believe.  “They” gained control of what many thought and what almost all of us see and hear.  That wasn’t enough.  They wanted it all.  As their control has grown, so has terrorism, continual war, economic poverty for millions Americans and insensitivity to justice and humanity.  Who would expect anything else from a corporation with no blood, no heart and no face?

The Founding Fathers led America on the path to freedom and eventual democracy.  The Federalists limited the ability of an impetuous electorate to seize power and “reform” America into chaos and anarchy.  This system of government was predicated on the belief that love of country would always burn brightly in America and with progress, freedom and bounty was the inevitable reward of our industry.  It is only now too obvious that so much has happened that was unforeseen.  It is not a denial of our traditions to correct wrongs when we find them.  This was how America was created.  We are drowning in wrongs, we all finally agree on this.

The time is now.  Party politics have failed.  Political theories are little more than empty rhetoric meant to mislead and misinform.  State has become church and church has become state.  State is less just and church less godly.  All we have left is “we, the People.”  This is how we began and it is now all we have to move forward.  It is time for the states to call for a Constitutional Convention to establish, not just a Republic, but a Democracy, by and for the people, the American people, rich and poor, a nation loyal to itself, not tied to corporations, a vast military industrial complex or endless foreign alliances.

If it is to be a genuinely conservative nation, one with individual freedoms, a small government, fewer taxes and more opportunity, a nation as intended, then we will all have to live with it.  The bloated corpse we are creating in Washington is emitting a stench we can no longer abide.  We will be saying goodbye to our Supreme Court, our seniority system in Congress and our political machines pretending to be “parties”  and hello to paper ballots, a free press, term limits and the ability to yank a scoundrel out of office when we catch one.

THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES

THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/11/11/gordon-duff-in-motion-the-plot-to-destroy-the-united-states/

 

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

“The 2010 election had one purpose, war with Iran, even if the risk is world conflict and the real loser, no matter what happens on the battlefield is the United States.”

Plans are in motion for a “false flag” attack on America.   Iran will be blamed, everyone knows that and Iran will be totally innocent.  This is the last thing Iran would ever want.  The most likely scenario is a nuclear attack.  Two bombs are missing, bombs built by Israel in South Africa and lost long ago.  These were supposedly Saddam’s bombs.  Now we are told Iran has them.  Israel has had them all along and the fear is, they may be inside the United States already.

The Israeli game with these weapons is one of the worst kept secrets in the world and has already cost the deaths of many.  It will take nothing short of the detonation of one of this Hiroshima sized Israeli nukes to push America into Israel’s war with Iran, much as hunting for these nukes which Israel informed President Bush were in Iraq, led “the decider” to making one of the many blunders of his career.  Our next 9/11 will be nuclear.

The purpose will be to push America into a 20 year war that will destroy Iran and Pakistan, take oil to over $300 per barrel and collapse the dollar and Euro.  Iran isn’t Iraq of 2003, toothless and starving.  This will be America’s last military adventure, and the end of America’s place in the world as we know it.  We know the details of the proposed military campaign and the military and political leaders who support it are the worst imaginable incompetents and traitors.

Invading Iran is an impossible task for America.  Other than there be no reason whatsoever to engage in such folly, something that, of recent years, seems to concern fewer and fewer Americans.   Turn on the TV, if the “rodeo clown” says “wipe ‘em out” then we do it.

Invading Iran is an impossibility for America. Going to the moon was easier.  No matter how senseless, how impossible, the decision has been made, more in Tel Aviv than Washington, for sure, but one that will be obeyed.

There are only two scenarios that can fulfill the nightmare Israel and her shiny new congress have in store with us.  One is a preemptive nuclear attack on Iran and the other full scale total war with up to 500,000 Americans being drafted into the military.

FAILURE OF THE “VOLUNTEER ARMY”…..AS ISRAEL SEES IT

Forcing America to return to a draft and begin a major war, one America can never really win as with Iraq and Afghanistan and, let us not forget Vietnam, is something absolutely vital to hang around the neck of a Democrat,

RACE HATRED, AMERICAN KRYPTONITE

especially one of African American ancestry.  Anyone who doesn’t think the real heart of American politics has always been racism is a liar.  Family values means “white” family values.  African Americans know shame at the relief they have felt seeing Muslims targeted for persecution.  Every political position in today’s America is derived from institutionalized racism, be it immigration, health care or “constitution.”

When a return to the “constitution” is brought up, by people who wouldn’t know the document from a Croatian take-out menu, the reality is always race, fear, hate and envy, the glue that holds American society prisoner.  Decades ago, and even more recently during our last presidential election, African Americans were represented as animals, “goyim” to the Jews.  Now we play “Kill the camel jockey.”  Is this why the Christianized army we sent to Afghanistan murders innocent civilians for sport?

An America in total economic collapse will require another “decider” and more “Patriot Acts,” even more totalitarian and vicious than the last, that and an end to the even farcical elections that are now inundated with drug money and cash from US based foreign corporations.

This is the plan and a criminal gang in America, some in government and the military but more behind the scenes, “banksters” and media moguls, many with ties to Israel, are working feverishly to bring it about.  However clever the planners may think they are, their machinations can be tracked through the media, the army of “Wolf Blitzers” that “work” the American people with the subtlety of carnie shills.

WHY DO THEY HATE US SO MUCH?

Why would anyone want to destroy America, kill millions, leave the nation that has been there to save the world over and over a virtual wasteland?  If you think America’s castrated government or the military, now relegated to acting as virtual mercenaries for drug lords, oil cartels and bizarre Zionist plots, have the will or ability to stop what has already begun, you have not been paying attention for some time.  While the “circus of deception” went on, the utterly phony “war on terror,” imaginary enemies, the 9/11 disaster, orchestrated by Israel and its puppets,

Israel has decided that America is going to war with Iran.  The new congress, the one Israel openly boasts is under their total control, will make it happen, it was why they were put there.  The upcoming war will leave the United States crippled, castrated, a “third world” nuclear power like the old Soviet Union.  The plot isn’t against Iran and Pakistan, that’s just an excuse.  The real enemy is what is left of a free and democratic America.

The real goal is to end America’s leadership role in the world.

Israel has plans for Russia, China and India, especially India, to rule the world with them pulling the strings.  America had been their “milk cow” for some time, now that cow is going to slaughter.

SCRATCH ONE SUPERTANKER OR DESTROYER

HOW IT BEGINS

This is how it is going to play out.  The news media has gotten their orders, Wikileaks is part of it.  From now on, key members of congress will, on cue, begin harping about the threat of Iran.  Governments in the Middle East that are under the total control of Israel and the American military will aid in every way possible.  Thus far, of all the Islamic nations in the world, only Syria and Afghanistan are not taking orders from Tel Aviv.

The next step will be to replace key military staff as was done prior to 9/11, with “Israel friendly” third stringers, “dominionists” and “Israeli firsters” who place “end times” religious mythology over the welfare, safety and sovereignty of the United States.  This group has been infiltrating the American military for years and has gained control of every service but the Marine Corps, starting with the United States Air Force.

The military pundits, with their laundered payoffs and free trips to Israel and the dozens of propaganda websites have already begun.  If you have a computer, you can check this easily.  Simply go into your email, it will be filled with warnings of Iran and nuclear terrorism.  An Israeli teenager paid dearly to bring you that message, spending a difficult night in a hotel with one of our political or military “pro-Zionists.”

Our newly elected “Tea Party’ gang will be visiting Israel soon, watch and see, there is a “Monica Lewinsky” in their future.  This is how it works, how it has worked for a long time and why we have sunk so low.

Anyone who talks about “liberal” media is part of it.  A cursory check of who owns the media, “liberal” or any other media is easy.  Israel owns our media, all of it.  The stories will start with tales of Iran controlling the Shiite government of Iraq.  Then you will hear of them controlling Karzai’s government in Afghanistan.

STEP ONE

Then the stories will start, Iran has to be tied to terrorist attacks on American troops.  Watch for this.  Americans will start dying and Iran will be blamed.  Wikileaks started this with their fanciful stories about Iranians training Iraq in making explosives.  A few years ago, we invaded Iraq because we believed they were building nuclear weapons, or so we were misinformed, now they can’t build pipe bombs without Iranian help?  Wikileaks is a clear demonstration at how childish, how outlandish the lies are going to be.  Wikileaks is prestaging terror attacks on Americans as much as if they made the bombs themselves, no question about that.

Every media outlet that, under specific directions, carries the “party line” on Wikileaks and the rest of it, no matter how absurd, carries these fabrications without question or embarrassment, should be considered a terrorist organization and their employees enemy combatants.

It will be Israel doing the killing just as with 9/11 and the USS Liberty and, frankly, so many other times Americans have died, like the Marines killed in Beirut, an attack Israel admitted knowing of in advance.  More and more, we are finding everything was “known” in advance, “known” because those who knew planned it.

Getting the scene set, all the assets in place, buying or blackmailing congress, keeping the president surrounded by Israeli advisors as he is today, silencing voices of reason in the military, all this is going on right now.

Years have been spent branding Iran and Pakistan as dangerous, the press continually ignoring reports that Iran has no nuclear program or endlessly repeating outrageous rumors that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are almost in the hands approaching “Taliban” forces.  With Karzai’s government Afghanistan openly negotiating with the Taliban after American forces, 9 years of fighting, have only managed to secure 3% of the country, building a case for war tied to Iranian “interference” in that conflict is going to be unmarketable.

This leaves Pakistan.  Drone attacks in Pakistan have brought about considerable destabilization and an increase in terrorism in Pakistan.  They have, as seemingly planned, worked to harm American interests in the region while attempting to bring about the dissolution of Pakistan.  Continual reports of American contractors in Pakistan, working for the CIA and State Department, aiding terrorists, go unreported in the American media.  Even when caught with weapons and explosives inside Pakistan, such reports are suppressed.

Increasingly, evidence is showing that the Mumbai attack, the massive terror assault on India blamed on Pakistan, was orchestrated by one of these American groups.

THE MONEY ISN’T THERE, AND WE KNOW IT

However, considering the financial collapse engineered though Bush era deregulation frauds combined with unstable tax policies and massive increase in government spending, combined with cost of two failed wars, America’s options are limited.  There is simply no revenue to pay the current military without rollbacks or sustain moderate capabilities and readiness.  America is too broke, not just to fight a new war but to continue the two that are going or even maintain a fully peacetime force at near current levels.

In fact, our military expenditures need to be cut by 30% or more, as studies being reviewed by the Department of Defense and congress are showing.  We have the choice of cutting back now or dealing with consequences later, including, not only cuts in military and veterans health care but substantial cuts in pensions and disability compensation as well.

Another war, and there is no question that another war is planned, will push American debt to$20 trillion or more, half being military expenditures, always a combination of pork, payoffs and “misplaced” weaponry and the rest looted from the economy by the planned massive manipulation of oil prices made possible by the shutoff of world petroleum supplies.

HOW IRAN CONTROLS THE WORLD'S OIL SUPPLY, 8000 MISSILES

“IRAN WILL SHUT DOWN HORMUZ AND WORLD OIL IN ONE HOUR”

In March, 2010, a Chinese built missile factory opened in Iran.  The plant builds a variety of missiles, primarily anti-ship, with ranges from 100 to 300 miles or more.  These are advanced weapons that can be launched from hardened facilities along Iran’s rugged coastline, from aircraft, both fixed and rotary, from patrol boats, from nearly anything.  One of these missiles can sink a frigate, perhaps even a destroyer.  Several can disable an aircraft carrier.  Approaching Iran from sea is impossible.

Iran controls Hormuz, not just with missiles but patrol boats as well, and not just from their own shore but from the islands in the gulf, some of which were seized 30 years ago and are still held.

The government of the United Arab Emirates has discussed, from time to time, a canal bypassing the strait, through to Oman and into the Persian Gulf.  However, the cost would be outrageous as a ridge of hills would have to be crossed, something difficult to manage with a lock system capable of handing the largest ships in the world, oil supertankers.

The missiles, the torpedo boats and the almost impossible network of islands and swamps along the coast would make suppressing Iran’s capabilities impossible.  The strait would close, oil would stop, Iraq, Iran certainly, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.  In days, currencies would collapse, stock markets shut down, gas lines would form and gas rationing would be required around the world.  All western economies would disappear overnight.

Iranian Facilities at Hormuz

WHY PAKISTAN HAS TO FALL

There is simply no way into Iran by land.  We can barely keep American troops in Afghanistan supplied with many routes being hundreds of miles long, narrow roads from the Port of Karachi in Pakistan.  Recently we found how easily this supply line could be cut off.  Agreements with Iran, not to mention religious affiliations between Shiites in Iraq, the majority there and the Shiite based government in Iran, make an approach through Iraq impossible.

We could also consider that our existing forces in Iraq and the entire Persian Gulf could be cut off by Iran with no resupply by sea possible for, not only Iraq but Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq.  These nations and the US forces there would be immediately isolated.  The only way in to Iran, restricted because of the topography, is through the province of Baluchistan, a remote area of Pakistan that borders Iran.

NEW YORK TO DENVER, ALL MOUNTAINS, NO ROADS

BALOCHISTAN

This isolated region has become the staging area for attacks against Iran, supposedly by Jundallah “rebels” but actually orchestrated by the Mossad and CIA.  There are two independence movements wanting to break Baluchistan from Pakistan.  One of the leaders I met in Islamabad while he was recovering from gunshot wounds.  The other lives in Israel, surprise-surprise.

Because of the topography of Iran, the only way to approach Tehran is over more than a thousand miles of valleys.  They can only be approached through Pakistan and there is only one port that serves that region.  The only way to resupply other than through this small Chinese built port, Gwadar, is to truck into Kandahar, hundreds of miles, then back down into Pakistan, following the 500,000 man army into Iran in something closely akin to Napoleon’s ill fated invasion of Russia, but even worse if that is possible.

Tiny port, dirt roads, narrow gauge rail only

The military analogies are inescapable, Dien Bien Phu and Stalingrad are two that come to mind.  Though the government of Pakistan lacks strong civilian leadership and is largely dependent on US aid, the use of Pakistan’s territory for another aggressive war in the Middle East that will perceived by almost all the world’s population, not just Muslims, as a sign of Israel’s control of the United States and its ability to get America to commit any crime, will not be acceptable to the people of Pakistan.  It is also highly unlikely that even Karzai’s government in Afghanistan would abide such an action.

Thus, America could become beset, not just from Pakistan but by its own allies in Afghanistan and, quite possibly, the newly trained and surprisingly effective army in Iraq as well.

America would become a rogue state, even if purporting to respond to a devastating terrorist attack.  In the aftermath of 9/11, America lacks any credibility.  The second a disaster strikes inside America, the world will immediately assume the worst, Israel has deemed such an act necessary to push America to war.  No rational person could assume otherwise.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

In order to stabilize the situation with our allies, those likely to become enemies, it will likely necessitate the decapitation of several regimes, Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan initially.  Others will quickly fall into line though some will be directly under the control of Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, in particular.  They will become indefensible except through massive airlift, resources that will be needed elsewhere.  Half the troops needed to secure America’s lines of supply left military service after multiple deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq for nearly a decade.  Many are sick, some are homeless and hundreds of thousands are simply “fed up.”

This leaves the new citizen army, the one America had to turn to because of a “9/11 – Pearl Harbor” disaster fewer and fewer believe the cover story on as days go by.  Even in America, despite what Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu thinks, you can only fool people so many times.  The most glaring example of the lack of foresight some of our “War College” grads have can be seen in the Gwadar Port facilities, the only place American can use for supplies for the most difficult invasion in history, with, perhaps, the exception of Okinawa.

TWO CRANES, TWO CRANES, TWO CRANES…COUNT THEM AGAIN, IT WILL STILL ONLY BE TWO CRANES

ECONOMIC BELT TIGHTENING AT HOME

The 2010 election paid for a war, there is no question of that.  Many of the puppets in America’s government had to be replaced as there was fear some of them might object to something as obscene as what is in the planning.  Lies, fear mongering and childish rhetoric had never reached the levels seen in 2010.  Never had a nation, since Germany in 1932, gone over to the “darkside” as clearly as America has done, a rejection of decency and common sense.

When the bill becomes due, and it most certainly will, that “smaller government” so many thought they would get will most certainly come true.  What won’t happen is a return to constitutional rule,that will be gone forever.  Habeas Corpus won’t be missed so much in a country where those without the cash to buy their way out of military service, yes, that great American tradition, will be one step ahead of the press gangs working to keep the military training camps filled to capacity.  America may, quite likely, have bitten off a bit too much, a world war, and this time,no allies, none, not a chance.

LESS GOVERNMENT, THE DREAM OF AMERICA’S “RIGHT”

SOCIAL SECURITY:

Plans for less government have always been around, we have seen attempts to put these plans in place many times, starting with attempts to have Social Security declared unconstitutional back in the 1930s.  This will be first to go, Social Security.  Getting rid of Social Security has long been a dream of the GOP, either through outlawing it as “Socialism,” or “borrowing” the trust fund to cover war expenses or, more recently “privatization.”  Now, none of those will be needed.  The money will simply disappear overnight, not to pay war expenses, not hardly.  It will be split up and stashed in Swiss bank accounts the same place the “bail out” money went, the same place every 401k in America went, the same place the assets of our largest banks went.

MEDICARE/MEDIAID:

They will be the next to go.  States will be asked to fund this themselves.  There won’t be any more questions about illegal aliens using our medical care, there won’t be any, not for them, not for the poor or not for the senior citizens who paid into medicare all their lives.  Just because it was paid for doesn’t mean the government can’t simply break its promise, there are loyalties more powerful and more important that our government has than to the people.  9/11 proved that to any rational person.

TAX INCREASES:

The time for borrowing, counterfeit money, the “Federal Reserve System” and selling T -Bills will be over.  China and Iran are close.  China will be finished with us, India too and no more Arab money.  The dollar, the instrument we use to buy oil, fertilizer, metals and so many other things, will be worthless.  We are going to have to invent a new form of monopoly money or go on the barter system.  The dollar, as a world currency, will disappear.

SCHOOLS SHUT DOWN:

One good thing, schools will shut down.  Thus, America’s inferior education system will no longer do the damage it once did.  Along with that, mothers will be home to take care of children, a “blast from the past.”  The downside, of course, the mothers will have lost their jobs, the homes will be unheated, some with no electricity, more with no water, all eventually repossessed and, unless the government starts giving out food as it had in the past, we will see starvation.  The money that financed Food Stamps will be long gone.

MILITARY AND VETERANS PENSIONS HALVED:

Long seen as “freeloaders,” veterans and military retirees will be cut off.  Pensions once seen as a “promise” have long been referred to as “entitlements.”  Any entitlement can be “un-entitled” and these will.

MILITARY PAY CUT:

Troops in Vietnam were paid $30 dollars a week.  We are going to see that again.

THIS IS THE INEXORABLE FUTURE, BOUGHT AND PAID FOR

The draft, worthless money, gas lines, martial law, metal detectors in supermarkets, cameras everywhere, everything filmed, recorded, everyone every day, biometrics, face recognition, these things will be part of our lives from now on.  These are the plans and putting this machinery in place, much of it “designed” in Israel, is what Americans voted for, this and the invasion of Iran, part of a war where only Americans will fight and die.

No one cares about Iran.  No knowledgeable person ever thought they had nuclear weapons or wanted them.  It was never about them.  They were never a target, they were never a threat.  The threat, the target, was always the United States.  We were the danger, a free people.

Free people can’t be trusted, can’t be managed.

The plans are in place to bring that to an end.

How many Americans will continue to be a part of it?

Congress To Vote On Declaration Of World War 3 An Endless War With No Borders, No Clear Enemies

Congress To Vote On Declaration Of World War 3 An Endless War With No Borders, No Clear Enemies

 

Posted by Alexander Higgins 

Alexander Higgins Blog

The United States Congress is set to vote on legislation that authorizes the official start of World War 3.

The legislation authorizes the President of the United States to take unilateral military action against all nations, organizations, and persons, both domestically and abroad, who are alleged to be currently or who have in the past supported or engaged in hostilities or who have provided aid in support of hostilities against the United States or any of its coalition allies.

The legislation removes the requirement of congressional approval for the use of military force and instead gives the President totalitarian dictatorial authority to engage in any and all military actions for an indefinite period of time.

It even gives the President the authority to launch attacks against American Citizens inside the United States with no congressional oversight whatsoever.

Just to recap, because that was a mouthful:

Endless War – The war will continue until all hostilities are terminated, which will never happen.

No Borders – The president will have the full authority to launch military strikes against any country, organization or person, including against U.S citizens on U.S soil.

Unilateral Military Action – Full authority to invade any nation at any time with no congressional approval required.

No Clearly Defined Enemy – The US can declare or allege anyone a terrorist or allege they are or have been supporting “hostilities” against the US and attack at will.

Authorization To Invade Several Countries – The president would have full authority to invade Iran, Syria, North Korea, along with several other nations in Africa and the Middle East and even Russia and China under the legislation all of which are “know” to have supported and aided hostilities against the United States.

The Hill writes:

House Dems protest GOP’s plans for permanent war against terror

Nearly three dozen House Democrats are calling on Republicans to withdraw a section of the 2012 defense authorization bill that they say would effectively declare a state of permanent war against unnamed Taliban and al Qaeda operatives.

A Tuesday letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and 32 other Democrats argues that affirming continued war against terrorist forces goes too far, giving too much authority to the president without debate in Congress.

Their letter cites language in the authorization bill that incorporates the Detainee Security Act, which affirms continued armed conflict against terrorists overseas.

“By declaring a global war against nameless individuals, organizations and nations ‘associated’ with the Taliban and al Qaeda, as well as those playing a supporting role in their efforts, the Detainee Security Act would appear to grant the president near unfettered authority to initiate military action around the world without further congressional approval,” Democrats wrote. “Such authority must not be ceded to the president without careful deliberation from Congress.”

The specific language in the bill is found in section 1034 of H.R. 1540, which affirms that the U.S. is “engaged in an armed conflict with al Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces.” It also affirms that the president has the authority to detain “certain belligerents” until the armed conflict is over.

“Al Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces still pose a grave threat to U.S. national security,” the bill says. “The Authorization for Use of Military Force necessarily includes the authority to address the continuing and evolving threat posed by these groups.”

The America Civil Liberties Union writes:

New Authorization of Worldwide War Without End?

Congress may soon vote on a new declaration of worldwide war without end, and without clear enemies. A “sleeper provision” deep inside defense bills pending before Congress could become the single biggest hand-over of unchecked war authority from Congress to the executive branch in modern American history.

President Obama has not sought new war authority. In fact, his administration has made clear that it believes it already has all of the authority that it needs to fight terrorism.

But Congress is considering monumental new legislation that would grant the president – and all presidents after him – sweeping new power to make war almost anywhere and everywhere. Unlike previous grants of authority for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the proposed legislation would allow a president to use military force wherever terrorism suspects are present in the world, regardless of whether there has been any harm to U.S. citizens, or any attack on the United States, or any imminent threat of an attack. The legislation is broad enough to permit a president to use military force within the United States and against American citizens. The legislation contains no expiration date, and no criteria to determine when a president’s authority to use military force would end.

Of all of the powers that the Constitution assigns to Congress, no power is more fundamental or important than the power “to declare War.” That is why, in 2002, when Congress was considering whether to authorize war in Iraq, it held fifteen hearings, and passed legislation that cited specific harms, set limits, and defined a clear objective. Now, Congress is poised to give unchecked authority to the executive branch to use military force worldwide, with profoundly negative consequences for our fundamental democratic system of checks and balances. Once Congress expands the president’s war power, it will be nearly impossible to rein it back in. The ACLU strongly opposes a wholesale turnover of war power from Congress to the president – and all of his successors.

Coalition Memo to the House Committee on Armed Services Regarding a Proposed New Declaration of War

Comparison of 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force and Proposed Expanded Authorization

The offending text (Here In The Full Text Of H.R. 1540 – section 1034) uses doublespeak to declare World War 3. Specifically, the text uses the phrase “affirms” “armed conflict” which is the terminology used by congress declare war in every war since World War 2.

Congress affirms that —

(1) the United States is engaged in an armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces and that those entities continue to pose a threat to the United States and its citizens, both domestically and abroad;

(2) the President has the authority to use all necessary and appropriate force during the current armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note);

(3) the current armed conflict includes nations, organization, and persons who—

(A) are part of, or are substantially supporting, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners; or

(B) have engaged in hostilities or have directly supported hostilities in aid of a nation, organization, or person described in subparagraph (A); and

(4) the President’s authority pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) includes the authority to detain belligerents, including persons described in paragraph (3), until the termination of hostilities.

A joint letter regarding the proposed legislation has been sent to congress condemning the proposed legislation.

RE:

Oppose Section 1034 and Any Similar New Declaration of War or New Authorization for Use of Military Force in the National Defense Authorization Act

The undersigned organizations strongly oppose the new Declaration of War, which is in Section 1034 of the Chairman’s mark for the National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”). We urge you to oppose the provision and any other similar new Declaration of War or new Authorization for Use of Military Force (“AUMF”) in the NDAA.

While we have written separately, and met with many of you and your military legislative assistants, on our concerns with other provisions of the Chairman’s mark, we are writing on this new Declaration of War specifically because it is a provision that has received almost no review, despite its likely tremendous effect on almost every facet of United States national security policy. At minimum, Congress should hold hearings and follow regular order before even considering such sweeping legislation.

This monumental legislation–with a large-scale and practically irrevocable delegation of war power from Congress to the President–could commit the United States to a worldwide war without clear enemies, without any geographical boundaries (the use of military force within the United States could be permitted), and without any boundary relating to time or specific objective to be achieved. Unlike the AUMF that authorized the Afghanistan War and the pursuit of Osama bin Laden, the proposed new Declaration of War does not cite any specific harm, such as the 9/11 attacks, or specific threat of harm to the United States. It appears to be stating that the United States is at war wherever terrorism suspects reside, regardless of whether there is any danger to the United States.

Under the guise of a “reaffirmation” of authority, Section 1034 of the Chairman’s mark for the NDAA would give the President unchecked authority–and if the section constitutes a declared “war,”1 possibly the unchecked duty –to use military force worldwide against or within any country in which terrorism suspects reside. The proposed new Declaration of War would be without precedent in the scope of war authority or duties transferred by Congress to the President:

The President would be able to use this authority–or might be required to use this authority–regardless of whether there has been any harm to United States citizens, or any attack on the United States or any imminent threat of any attack. There is not even any requirement of any threat whatsoever to the national security of the United States.

There is no geographical limitation–the new Declaration of War has no specification of countries against which military force could be used, and no specification of countries where U.S. armed forces could be deployed with or without the permission of the host country. Military force could even be used within the United States and against American citizens.

There is no specific objective for the new Declaration of War, which means that there is no clear criteria after which the President’s authority to use military force would expire. Although the proposed new Declaration of War lists “al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces” as the “threat,” there is no definition for any of these entities, which historically have been amorphous, with shifting names, memberships, and organizational relationships.

If Congress broadly turns over to the President the power that Article I of the Constitution provides to Congress to declare war, it very likely will never get the power back. The broad terms of the proposed new Declaration of War could last for decades.

Whether Congress realizes it or not, the proposed new Declaration of War would authorize the President to use the United States military against countries such as Somalia, Iran, or Yemen, or send the American military into any of the scores of countries where suspected terrorists reside, which include not only nearly all Middle East, African, and Asian countries, but also European countries and Canada–and of course, the United States itself. Under the expansive terms used for organizations in the proposed new Declaration of War, targets could include suspects having no connection to the 9/11 attacks or to any other specific harm or threat to the United States. The President would have the power to go to war almost anywhere, at any time, and based on the presence of suspects who do not have to pose any threat to the national security of the United States.

If Section 1034 of the Chairman’s mark for the NDAA constitutes a declaration of war–which Congress has not declared since 1942–the declaration would trigger various exemptions from federal statutes and even broader authority for the President to control more aspects of both government and private businesses. The March 17, 2011 report from the Congressional Research Service, “Declarations of War and Authorizations for the Use of Military Force: Historical Background and Legal Implications,” lists all of the statutory provisions, ranging from exemptions from budgetary limitations to new government claims over oil and mineral resources, that are triggered by a declaration of war.

Of course, if Congress believes that there is a significant new threat to the national security of the United States that requires significant military force as a response, it can declare war or enact a new AUMF, but Congress should, at minimum, follow what it did in 2002 with the AUMF for the Iraq War, where it held fifteen hearings on the proposed war and passed an AUMF that cited specific harms, set limits, and defined a clear objective that, if met, would effectively terminate the AUMF. A specific declaration of war or a specific AUMF would better preserve the system of checks and balances and make an endless, worldwide war less likely.

To be clear, President Obama has not sought enactment of the proposed new Declaration of War. To the contrary, his Administration has made clear its position that it believes it already has all of the authority that it needs to fight terrorism. But if the proposed new Declaration of War becomes law, President Obama and all of his successors, until and unless a future Congress and future President repeal it, will have the sweeping new power to make war almost anywhere and everywhere.

Of all of the powers that Article I of the Constitution assigns to Congress, no power is more fundamental or important than the power “to declare War.” We urge you to use this power carefully, and to oppose this wholesale turnover of war power, without any checks–and without even holding a single hearing. Thank you for your attention to this issue, and we would be pleased to meet with you or your staff to discuss our concerns further.

1 The most critical sentence of section 1034 of the Chairman’s mark for the NDAA is “Congress affirms that the United States is engaged in an armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces and that those entities continue to pose a threat to the United States and its citizens, both domestically and abroad.” If “affirms” is replaced with the synonym “declares” and “armed conflict” is replaced with the synonym “war,” the result is “Congress declares that the United States is in a war with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces . . . “, which is very similar to the declaration of war clauses of the eleven declarations of war made by Congress, from the War of 1812 through World War II. Since 1942, Congress has passed several authorizations for use of military force, but has not made any declarations of war.

2 Although the question of whether a declaration of war imposes a duty on the President to carry out the war has only rarely come up in court decisions, at least one federal court, in comparing the legal consequences of a declaration of war with an authorization for use of military force, stated, “If war existed why empower the President to apprehend foreign enemies? War itself placed that duty upon him as a necessary and inherent incident of military command.” Gray v. United States, 21 Ct. Cl. 340, 373 (1886) (emphasis added).

The bill has many other shocking elements as well, such as the requirement that all arrests related to terrorism be treated as military arrests (section 4), thus circumventing the constitution. Furthermore, legislation introduce under the McCain bill would make it illegal for military prisoners in US overseas torture prisons to be returned to US Facilities.

Indeed, the moment we all feared has come before us as the Congress meddles giving the President absolute power over the military, including the authority to launch military strikes within the United States against U.S. Citizens. With the assassination of Osama Bin Laden on Pakistan soil many of were naïve in believing that the War on Terror would come to an end.

Instead,  the reported success of the raid is being used as a crutch to push through new legislation in the defense bills up for vote before congress which literally authorize World War 3, which will be declared as an endless war with no defined enemies and no borders. Short of committing genocide the termination of the hostilities will never come and as such the war will never come to end.

We have already learned that officials falsified reports that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq for the “prize” of oil. If a whole government of top officials can not be trusted then surely a single president cannot be trusted either.

We have seen the U.S Government turn Nazi and buy and burn every copy of a book that had evidence of a 9/11 coverup. The Department of Justice has already published a memo calling constitutionalists and survivalist as potential terrorists.

Is it not bad enough that the U.S courts have already legalized the abduction of U.S Citizens along with their indefinite detention and torture in overseas prison camps? Or that the U.S Government openly admits to gunning down, kidnapping and torturing American college students?

Under the definition of the legislation, the President could authorize the military to attack the ACLU building because they have supported the “terrorists” by arguing for their civil rights.

It will not be long before they are assassinating activists. The have already labeled conspiracy theories as “dangerous thoughts that could lead to violence” and have even specifically called The Intel Hub, which routinely publishes my articles, as an echo chamber pushing out these “dangerous thoughts that could lead to violence”.

Uncle Sam openly admits to turning its multi-billion dollar espionage network against U.S Citizens which has produced such great fruits as innocent activists exercising their first amendment rights being placed on the terrorist watch list by the FBI and DHS.

Seriously, this is so out of control and it is only a time that the World War 3 is being fought against you and me. Just remember as long as we are in a state of war your civil liberties and constitutional rights are pretty much null and void, only enforceable if the Government allows you to have them. Even then, they can declare you as a terrorist, enemy combatant or a threat to national security to revoke your constitutional rights anyway. Then they can play the national security card when they are asked to explain their allegations.

All around this is rotten and the first step to getting our rights back is to end the perpetual wars.

Contact your congressman and tell them No Way To this egregious bill!

Update – Here is some corporate media coverage of this story, since some people like to see it in the mainstream media to believe it.

Critics: GOP bill a declaration of constant war

House Republicans want to reaffirm war against al-Qaida, the Taliban — and anyone else — with controversial bill

Republican chair of the Armed Services Committee, Howard McKeon, R-Calif., revealed The National Defense Authorization Act on Monday, which includes a bill renewing an act passed just days after 9/11, the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF). AUMF gave then-President George W. Bush carte blanche to hunt down the 9/11 perpetrators and their allies. The renewed bill, however, makes no reference to the 9/11 attackers and some critics have called it “the first full-scale declaration of war by the U.S. since World War II,” since it makes no reference to the capturing of parties guilty of a specific act. Indeed, the section of The National Defense Authorization Act under question here is called the Declaration of War.

According to POLITICO:

The new language drops any reference to 9/11 and “affirms” a state of “armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces.” The measure also explicitly gives the president the right to take prisoners “until the termination of hostilities” – something the courts have found to be implicit in the current version of the AUMF, though the new proposal could be seen to extend that power.

The argument from proponents of the Republican-backed bill is that, in the decade since AUMF was enacted, terror groups with no connection to 9/11 have come into the picture. Critics say such terror suspects should be dealt with using law enforcement and that we should not be affirming a commitment to war without specific aims or boundaries. The bill would also give the president the ability to attack an individual, group, or nation without Congressional approval.

The Daily Paul:

ALERT: Congress is About to Vote on Worldwide War Authority

The time is now to restore respect for the Constitution. Tell Congress that a blank check on war isn’t just unnecessary — it’s truly dangerous.

They have to be kidding. Congress is about to vote on worldwide war authority. This was long on the Bush administration’s wish list. Now, a few top congressional insiders see an opportunity to sneak it in to a “must pass” piece of legislation: the Defense Authorization bill.

This expanded war authority would give the president — any president — the power to use military force, whenever and however he or she sees fit. It would essentially declare a worldwide war without end.

It is shocking that Congress is entertaining such legislation at a time when many are looking to see an end to escalating conflict and abuses of power in the name of fighting terrorism.

ACLU Petition

Oppose New Worldwide War Authority

A few top congressional insiders are aiming to sneak new worldwide war authority in to a “must pass” piece of legislation: the Defense Authorization bill.

This new war authority would give the president — any president — the power to unilaterally take our country to war wherever, whenever and however he or she sees fit. It would essentially declare a worldwide war without end.

It is shocking that Congress is entertaining such legislation at a time when many are looking to see an end to escalating conflict and abuses of power in the name of fighting terrorism.

Take action! Tell your representative to oppose new worldwide war authority.

 

Politico:

GOP seeks to redefine war on terror

A little over a week after the United States finally succeeded in its long-sought goal of killing Osama bin Laden, Congress is set to engage in a debate over whether to extend the war on terror indefinitely or leave in place legislation that could eventually wind it down.

Enacted over a lone dissenting vote just three days after the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the “Authorization for the Use of Military Force,” or AUMF, authorized President George W. Bush to use “all necessary and appropriate force” against those involved in the 9/11 attacks as well as anyone who harbored the perpetrators.

The new language drops any reference to 9/11 and “affirms” a state of “armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces.” The measure also explicitly gives the president the right to take prisoners “until the termination of hostilities” – something the courts have found to be implicit in the current version of the AUMF, though the new proposal could be seen to extend that power.

But critics say the Republican-sponsored measure amounts to the first full-scale declaration of war by the U.S. since World War II – at a moment when counter-terrorism efforts are succeeding, the U.S. is withdrawing from Iraq, and about to begin a withdrawal from Afghanistan. And, they say, it gives Obama and any successor carte blanche to attack any individual or any nation without further approval from Congress.

Defense Bill Would ‘Affirm’ War With al Qaeda

Even though Osama bin Laden is dead, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon (R., Calif.) wants to remind Washington: The war on terror ain’t over.

And with that in mind, Rep. McKeon, who chairs the House Armed Services Committee, is pushing for Congress to renew the 2001 authorization to use military force against terrorists.

The chairman on Monday revealed his version of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2012, and his mark of the bill includes a provision that “would affirm that the United States is engaged in an armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces.”

Critics say provisions in the bill are tantamount to a congressional declaration of war that could give the president broad new powers over private business and government spending.

One provision seeks to bolster the Authorization for Military Force, passed by Congress in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, which the Bush and Obama administration have used as legal authority to conduct military and intelligence operations in Afghanistan and other countries where al Qaeda affiliates have sprung up.

The American Civil Liberties Union and more than a dozen mostly left leaning groups wrote a letter to members of the House Armed Services Committee to oppose the “reaffirmation” saying that it essentially declares war and gives broad powers to the president that normally belong to Congress.

Supreme Court allows warrantless drug search in Kentucky case

    * May 16th, 2011 6:38 pm ET

Thomas McAdam

    * Louisville Public Policy Examiner

The United States Supreme Court handed down a decision today that will profoundly affect the way police search for drugs.  In reviewing a case out of Lexington, Kentucky, the Court­in an eight to one decision­ruled that “exigent circumstances” are created when police reasonably believe a suspect is in the process of destroying evidence, and therefore a search warrant is not constitutionally required.

In the case of Commonwealth of Kentucky vs. Hollis DeShaun King, the Lexington police conducted a “buy bust” raid on October 13, 2005, at an apartment on Center Parkway.  Officers followed a suspected drug dealer to the apartment complex, and testified that they smelled marijuana outside an apartment door, knocked loudly, and announced their presence. As soon as the officers began knocking, they heard noises coming from the apartment which sounded like something was being flushed down a toilet.

The officers announced their intent to enter the apartment, kicked in the door, and found Mr. King and others; along with drugs in plain view.   The Fayette Circuit Court denied King's motion to suppress the evidence, holding that exigent circumstances–the need to prevent destruction of evidence–justified the warrantless entry. King entered a conditional guilty plea, reserving his right to appeal the suppression ruling, and the Kentucky Court of Appeals affirmed. The Supreme Court of Kentucky reversed. The court assumed that exigent circumstances existed, but it nonetheless invalidated the search. The exigent circumstances rule did not apply, the court held, because the police should have foreseen that their conduct would prompt the occupants to attempt to destroy evidence.

But the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the Kentucky Supreme Court, ruling that the exigent circumstances rule applies when the police do not create the exigency by engaging or threatening to engage in conduct that violates the Fourth Amendment.  Restating the established rule that a warrantless search is objectively reasonable under the Fourth Amendment, the Court created a new test to determine when and if police impermissibly create an exigency.

According to the Court, the “proper test” to determine whether warrantless searches are allowed is whether or not the police actually created the exigency by engaging or threatening to engage in conduct violating the Fourth Amendment:

“Assuming an exigency did exist, the officers' conduct–banging on the door and announcing their presence–was entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment. (King) has pointed to no evidence supporting his argument that the officers made any sort of ‘demand’ to enter the apartment, much less a demand that amounts to a threat to violate the Fourth Amendment.”

Justice Samuel Alito delivered the majority opinion of the Court, and Chief Justice Roberts joined in the opinion, along with Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan.   Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg filed a dissenting opinion, in which she said:

“The Court today arms the police with a way routinely to dishonor the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement in drug cases. In lieu of presenting their evidence to a neutral magistrate, police officers may now knock, listen, then break the door down, never mind that they had ample time to obtain a warrant.”

While You Were Sleeping, They Abolished the Fourth Amendment

While You Were Sleeping, They Abolished the Fourth Amendment

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
May 17, 2011

Two recent Supreme Court cases have served to virtually abolish the Fourth Amendment in the United States of America, with citizens no longer being “secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

In a precedent described by dissenting justices as “breathtaking” and “unnecessarily broad,” the Indiana Supreme Court ruled last week in a 3-2 vote that doing anything to resist police busting down your door and conducting an illegal search is now a criminal act.

“[We] hold that the right to reasonably resist an unlawful police entry into a home is no longer recognized under Indiana law,” the court ruled in the case of Richard L. Barnes v. Indiana.

Dissenting Justices Brent E. Dickson and Robert D. Rucker made it clear that the ruling represented a total rejection of rights enshrined in the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution.

“In my view, the wholesale abrogation of the historic right of a person to reasonably resist unlawful police entry into his dwelling is unwarranted and unnecessarily broad,” Dickson wrote.

“In my view it is breathtaking that the majority deems it appropriate or even necessary to erode this constitutional protection based on a rationale addressing much different policy considerations,” added Rucker. “There is simply no reason to abrogate the common law right of a citizen to resist the unlawful police entry into his or her home.”

The ruling was made under the justification that resisting a police officer had the potential to escalate and cause violence against the officer, meaning that the God-like status bestowed upon police officers now trumps both the 220-year-old Fourth Amendment and the 796-year-old Magna Carta on which it is based.

In a separate case, on Monday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 that the police can now also bust down a door and enter your property without a warrant if they smell marijuana or hear sounds that are suggestive of destruction of evidence. The case revolved around the warrantless search of an apartment in Kentucky, Lexington.

“Where, as here, the police did not create the exigency by engaging or threatening to engage in conduct that violates the Fourth Amendment, warrantless entry to prevent the destruction of evidence is reasonable and thus allowed,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority.

Of course, the fact that police officers have been known to habitually lie in order to justify illegally entering a property and violating the Fourth Amendment (which is apparently now null and void anyway), was not considered.

These two cases merely scratch the surface of America’s descent into an authoritarian tyranny, which has noticeably deepened over the last few weeks. Describing the United States as a “police state” is no longer a glib or alarmist use of rhetoric, because by every measurable tenet and in every context, the rights guaranteed in the Constitution are now being completely ignored by government or simply abolished altogether.

Stock up with Fresh Food that lasts with eFoodsDirect (Ad)

The fact that Supreme Courts are now attacking the very Constitution they are supposed to uphold is proof that America has been hijacked by rogue criminal elements who are busy dismantling everything that once made the country a beacon of liberty for the world.

The debate is officially over. America has now entered the annuls of history as an authoritarian police state on a par with Soviet Russia, and as that virus spreads throughout all levels of society it will ultimately lead the United States to the same fate – the only question remaining is how messy the collapse will be, how many people will be incarcerated, and how many people the government will murder in the process.
