Opposition to NAIS grows
NAIS has been treated by most reporters and news organizations as a niche issue, not of interest to its general audience. It’s as if because this affects farmers, the consumers who eat what farmers grow don’t have to be concerned. That’s changing fast across the nation.

The New York Times published an OpEd opposing NAIS March 10, http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/11/opinion/11hayes.html?_r=1&th&emc=th. Shannon Hayes, the author of “The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook” and the forthcoming “Radical Homemakers,” wrote it from the small farmer’s perspective.

“The burden for a program that would safeguard agribusiness interests would be disproportionately shouldered by small farmers, rural families and consumers of locally produced food. Worse yet, that burden would force many rural Americans to lose not only the family business, but our way of life,” she concludes.

Huffington Post published its own piece last week on March 16, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alison-rose-levy/having-a-cow-and-eating-i_b_175211.html. Written by Alison Rose Levy, the column attacks NAIS for its ineffectiveness in improving food safety. That’s not the issue that USDA has proposed as justification for NAIS, but it has inevitably become confabulated with the issue of animal disease, the stated focus. She confuses the FDA with the USDA in the column, but that confusion reflects how the alphabet soup of federal agencies confuses us all. Her reasoning is correct and getting attention in the general media for NAIS is dead serious.

A related issue is Collin Peterson, D-Minn, chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, http://agriculture.house.gov/index.shtml. The Sacramento Bee says he must go, after having damaged a valuable public lands bill by adding an unrelated amendment to allow concealed loaded weapons in national parks to accommodate the National Rifle Association, http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/story/1695853.html?mi_rss=Opinion.

The NRA isn’t the only organization pulling Peterson’s strings. He’s been a mouthpiece for industrial agriculture throughout his tenure chairing the ag committee, with pockets jingling, frowning brow and mouth full throttle. Every farmer would agree—It’s time for him to go home.

Govt gives China Eminent Domain options to guarantee debt.

Govt gives China Eminent Domain options to guarantee debt.

Beijing, China — The United States of America has tendered to China a written agreement which grants to the People’s Republic of China, an option to exercise Eminent Domain within the USA, as collateral for China’s continued purchase of US Treasury Notes and existing US Currency reserves!

On February 11, Bloomberg Business News reported that China was seeking “guarantees” for its US Government debt (Story Here), and it now appears they got it. Well placed senior sources at the US Embassy in Beijing CONFIRM the formal written agreement was delivered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her recent trip to China.

This means that in the event the US Government defaults on its financial obligations to China, the Communist Government of China would be permitted to physically take — inside the USA — land, buildings, factories, perhaps even entire cities – to satisfy the financial obligations of the US government.

Put simply, the feds have actually mortgaged the physical land and property of all citizens and businesses in the United States. They have given to a foreign power, their Constitutional power to “take” all of our property, as actual collateral for continued Chinese funding of US deficit spending and the continued carrying of US national debt.

This is an unimaginable betrayal of every man, woman and child in the USA. An outrage worthy of violent overthrow.

Eminent Domain is the power of government to TAKE private property for public use without the consent of the property owner. Under our Constitution, the government can only “take” when providing “just compensation” for what they’ve taken.

Who decides what constitutes “just compensation?” The government!

in past “takings” homeowners who felt the government was not paying them enough for property have filed lawsuits. In absolutely every such case, the value placed upon the property by the government was upheld by the courts.

Our federal government has now granted to China, this power to “take” our homes and businesses in the event the US Gov’t defaults on its debts.

Let’s play this out as a worst case scenario. . . . . .

The US Gov’t goes belly-up and China comes in and says, “they owed us $700 Billion in Treasury Notes and another $2 Trillion in actual cash money which is now worthless. We are taking the entire state of Hawaii and the entire state of California in lieu of this bad debt. ”

With the stroke of a Chinese chop stick, Hawaii and California — all the land and buildings in those states — are now owned by China.

The “taking” would be a “valid public use” because it was “taken” in payment of the public debt!!!!

China could then turn around and declare the value of all that land to be worth. . . . . I dunno, ten cents on a dollar?

If you own a $200,000 house in either state, you get a Chinese check for $20,000.

Needless to say, the property owners would go ballistic and demand “just compensation” for what was taken. Who gets to decide what is “just?” China!

Don’t think you got a fair price for what they took? No problem, sue China. You’ll lose.

People who live in those states and own their land outright, might be able to negotiate with China to “rent” back what used to be their own property, as long as they continue to pay all their taxes (to China) ; but the land and buildings would belong to China!

This is what our own Government has just done to us and it is the single most vile act of betrayal in the history of human existence.

State Governments Knew This Was Coming

In early February nine U.S. States began the process of re-asserting their Sovereignty pursuant to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the US Constitution; declaring null and void any actions by Congress that violated the Constitution.

At the time, I wrote about those state efforts (Here) and wondered why so many states were taking-up such an arcane issue in such a seemingly urgent fashion. I guess now, we know why.

The states were obviously privy to what the feds were planning to do with granting Eminent Domain to China. The states took action to make certain the feds couldn’t give away cities or the states themselves!

This situation is going to get VERY ugly, VERY fast as one sovereign power (the feds) tries to literally give away the land of other sovereign powers, (the states). This is the type of thing that starts Civil War.

Our present federal government makes the treachery and betrayal of Benedict Arnold look like child’s play.

My Response To MIAC Report…….By Chuck Baldwin

1 Comment

March 24, 2009 

This column is archived at

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2009/cbarchive_20090324.html

 

 

By now, readers should be familiar with the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report dated 02/20/09 and titled, “MIAC Strategic Report: The Modern Militia Movement.” In this dreadfully malicious and slanderous “law enforcement sensitive” secret police report, Governor Jeremiah (Jay) Nixon; John Britt, Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety; James Keathley, Colonel, Missouri State Highway Patrol; and Van Godsey, Director of MIAC categorize certain citizens as being potential violence-prone “militia members.” I would venture to guess that more than 75% of the entire population of the United States would fit the MIAC’s broad definition of someone who would fall into the aforementioned category.

 

According to the MIAC report, if you oppose any of the following, you could qualify for being profiled as a potential dangerous “militia member”:

 

The United Nations

The New World Order

Gun Control

The violation of Posse Comitatus

The Federal Reserve

The Income Tax

The Ammunition and Accountability Act

A possible Constitutional Convention

The North American Union

Universal Service Program

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Abortion

Illegal Immigration

 

Again, I would bet that at least 75% of the American people would oppose at least one or more items on the above list. Well, according to the MIAC report, that is sufficient to make them potential dangerous “militia members.”

 

However, it is the following statement contained in the MIAC report that is particularly disturbing to yours truly. Under the heading “Political Paraphernalia,” the report states, “Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional [sic] Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate [sic]: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”

 

The obvious inference of the above statement links Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and myself to potential dangerous “militia members.” The broader implication is that the millions of people who supported Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or myself are likewise categorized as potential dangerous “militia members.” This is a classic case of broad-brushed police profiling. Can you imagine the fallout of this preposterous report had the names Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Maxine Waters been used instead of the names Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr?

 

Accordingly, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and I wrote a formal letter to the above-named Missouri officials demanding “that the following-described document be immediately removed from any and all websites associated with or maintained by the state of Missouri or any agency thereof, including the MIAC; that the said document no longer be circulated by the state of Missouri or any agency thereof or associated therewith; and that the state of Missouri repudiate its references to the three of us contained therein.”

Ladies and gentlemen, we simply cannot allow this kind of police profiling to continue. I assure you, this phenomenon is not limited to the State of Missouri. Every state that has a “Fusion Center” is being fed this kind of nonsense on a regular basis. You and I are commonly referred to as “extremists” in these secret police reports. This has been happening in earnest for the past couple of months and is operating under the auspices of the federal Department of Homeland Security. And people with a public platform (such as myself, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and a host of others) are now being singled out by name. How long will it be before police agencies begin “picking up and hauling away” those people whose names are mentioned in these reports? It may be sooner than we think.

 

To see if your state has a “Fusion Center,” go here:

 

http://www.dhs.gov/xinfoshare/programs/gc_1156877184684.shtm

 

The only thing that will stymie this nonsense is a huge public outcry opposing it. Yes, the people of this country (that means YOU) still have the power to put a stop to this kind of totalitarian thinking. If we do nothing, however, it will soon be too late to stop it. We either stop it now, or it will quickly mushroom into a leviathan that will both monitor and control the personal opinions and speech of every man, woman, and child in this country. No, I am not exaggerating.

 

The Feds already monitor virtually every phone call, email, and public speech in the country. How long before these secret police reports will be used as justification to arrest and incarcerate people because of their ideas and opinions, labeling them as a “threat” or as “dangerous” to society?

 

Here is the contact information for the appropriate officials in Missouri:

 

Email address: Brandon.middleton@mshp.dps.mo.gov

 

Missouri Information Analysis Center

Division of Drugs & Crime Control

P. O. Box 568

Jefferson City, MO 65102-0568

Phone: 573-751-6422

Toll Free: 866-362-6422

Fax: 573-751-9950

 

And while you are at it, you should also contact the state police agency as well as the governor’s office in your state, especially if your state has a “Fusion Center” (see web site above). Mark it down: if you have ever publicly opposed any of the above-mentioned issues or organizations, or have ever publicly supported an independent Presidential candidate, YOU ARE BEING PROFILED RIGHT NOW!

 

We await the State of Missouri’s response. In the meantime, what are you going to do?

 

P.S. Even as this column is being distributed, we have just received a reply from the Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety, John Britt. I will analyze and respond to this statement in my next column.

 

 

Treasury Secretary does not work for the United States

 See also: Where is that illusive US treasury? Can you say Puerto Rico?

 

The appointment of a Secretary of the Treasury is just that, an appointment to a position which is NOT a cabinet position in any administration.  The S.o.T. is the [governor] appointed to the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF).  He is not an officer of the United States, is not a cabinet member and does not represent the interests of the United States.  His position is as liaison between the federal government and the IMF.  His obligation is to the IMF, not to the United States.  The secretary of the Treasury is not sworn into office as cabinet members are, and take no oaths to the United States. 

 

Just today, the subcommittee hearings on AIG and how the bailouts had been constructed, were held.  Repeatedly, Geithner uses the term “your government” when responding to questions from committee members.  He never says “our government” or “the government”.  Geithner uses the term “your government” to distinguish himself as an employee of the IMF/World Bank, and to make clear that he is NOT a cabinet member working on behalf of the US government.  Geithner repeatedly alludes to the central bank which is neither a US agency or organization but rather a privately owned and regulated banking cartel.    

 

How many of you sitting out there actually believe there is a US bank account somewhere in this country containing tax deposits from workers, and funds generated by all the businesses the federal government unconstitutionally engages in, or any of the other contrived sources of income that comprise the revenues of the federal government?

 

I have news for you; there isn’t any such account.  All funds collected including our tax dollars are deposited in the World Bank and administered by the International Monetary Fund. 

 

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 abolished the United States treasury, ended the cabinet position and created the IMF governorships.  Each country being a member of the IMF has its own governor.  When Timothy Geithner or Henry Paulson speak of the G-8, or the G-20, they are speaking of the meetings of governors whose purpose it is to determine what plan or action would benefit the IMF, not the countries involved.  Their purpose of meeting is not to act to benefit the countries represented, but rather to act to protect the interests of the IMF.

 

The IMF and World Bank are also the issuers of all government checks some of which still bear the name U.S. Treasury.  Most checks emanating from government no longer even pretend to come from this fictional U.S. Bank account.

 

  • In addition, every Social Security number is issued by the IMF, not the federal government operating as the Social Security Administration.
  • Every birth certificate with registration number is originated from and  registered with the IMF/World Bank
  • Every Veterans award
  • All military pay
  • All government paychecks
  • All payments of any kind emanating from the Federal government are paid through the IMF/World Bank.

 

The careful depositing of the term [central bank] will occur more frequently as a matter of psychological conditioning as we are forced into a privately owned, world wide banking system.  Once this is forced on us, the demise of the Federal Reserve will follow as it is absorbed into the one world, bank and its existence is no longer needed to facilitate the manipulation of debt and economies as that function will now be openly orchestrated by the central bank.  

 

The World Bank and IMF are expansions of the Federal Reserve central banking system.  Paulson, and now Geithner openly allude to the [central bank], a term which should frighten even the most apathetic among us.  In the past no one directly mentioned the connection to the World Bank, but as economies around the world have been intentionally imploded in order to pave the way for acceptance of a world wide central banking system the term is used openly; that way you’ll get used to it and won’t go into rebellious shock when your dollars are converted to toilet paper.
