Wyoming Joins Phony “Sovereignty Movement”

6 Comments

According to an article on the Tenth Amendment Center website, Wyoming’s governor Dave Freudenthal has just signed Wyoming’s Joint Resolution 2 (HJ0002), claiming “sovereignty on behalf of the State of Wyoming and for its citizens under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government or reserved to the people by the Constitution of the United States.”

The problem with this, as well as with identical resolutions from several other states, as I have pointed out before (see “Sovereignty Hypocrisy,” “Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part II,” and “Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part III”), is that Wyoming, like all the other states “declaring sovereignty” is simply blowing a smoke screen to conceal its involvement in the New World Order police state that is slowly coalescing right before our eyes.

As with most of the other states “declaring sovereignty,” Wyoming also has FEMA camps within its borders, More

What Alex Jones & Infowars Don’t Want You to Know About the “Sovereignty Movement” – Addendum

14 Comments

In yesterday’s article, exposing the deliberate policy of Alex Jones and Infowars to promote the phony “sovereignty movement,” I said that I would show you links to my Infowars comments, but for the fact that they’d been deleted.

Well, this morning, I made screen captures of a conversation I had begun last night with another commenter to the article on Sarah Palin and the Alaskan “sovereignty” resolution, which concluded this morning with some very revealing comments that prove the points I made in my article that (1) Jones and crew regularly practice censorship on the comments sections and that (2) others are in agreement with me on the “sovereignty” issue and they have been silenced by Infowars, as well.

Here are the screen captures, showing the relevant posts in the conversation. There is some overlap of the images, in order to get it all in and maintain the proper context. Meanwhile, for those who would rather see the actual article on Infowars and read everything that was said there, here is the link to that, as well.

What Alex Jones & Infowars Don’t Want You to Know About the “Sovereignty Movement”

35 Comments

If you’ve been a reader of PPJG for long enough, you are probably aware of my three-part series of articles on the phony state “sovereignty movement” (see Sovereignty Hypocrisy, Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part II and Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part III), but what you may not be aware of, unless you’ve been a frequent reader of the comments sections at Alex Jones’ Infowars.com website is the agenda Jones has to promote this phony “sovereignty movement.”

Since last year, when I personally brought to Infowars’ attention the declaration of sovereignty by Oklahoma (my home state) and Infowars ran with the story two days later (without any thanks to or mention of me, of course), Alex Jones and crew have been trumpeting this “movement” as it developed.

As state after state followed Oklahoma’s lead – often using the exact same verbiage that Oklahoma used in its declaration – Jones had each of these states’ governors and sponsoring representatives on his radio program as guests, where they were not only allowed to give their “sovereignty” propaganda to Alex Jones’ audience, but were praised by Alex Jones as true “patriots.”

The problem, as I have detailed in my articles, is that this so-called “movement” is a ruse designed to placate the masses and to lull the gullible into a state of false security, believing that their respective states are somehow going to save them from the federal colossus when martial law comes.

As I have detailed, all of the states “declaring sovereignty” have FEMA camps within their borders. This includes the latest addition to the sovereignty roster, Alaska, which has five FEMA camps.

In addition, several of the same states have passed laws within the past year or so that facilitate the rise of the police state. Most of this has been in the form of new gun laws that facilitate gun confiscations during martial law, but which are carefully worded to make it seem as if they do the exact opposite. Some don’t even do that, but have been promoted as if they do and the public – which doesn’t bother to read beyond the headlines, much less read the actual laws themselves – has bought into this propaganda.

Furthermore, one week from tomorrow (July 27th) will begin a week long FEMA National Level Exercise (NLE 09) in which Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, New Mexico and Louisiana will be policed, not only by a coordinated grid of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, but the combined military forces of four foreign nations (Mexico, Canada, the UK and Australia). Oklahoma was the first state to “declare sovereignty.” Louisiana is among the states “declaring sovereignty,” also. Yet, here they are, fully cooperating with this unprecedented event in which foreign troops will be quartered on U.S. soil for the purpose of policing Americans! It is illegal for our own military to do so (under the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878), let alone foreign troops!

The fact is, as I have said before, the police state control grid will be local. It will depend, for its very existence, upon the complete cooperation and participation of every one of the states. There is no way around this.

Given that, it is a very apparent contradiction, then, that these same states would be “rebelling” against the federal government they are cooperating with.

Yet, even when this is pointed out and proof is shown to demonstrate it, most people will stubbornly cling to the idea that somehow these states are seriously declaring sovereignty from the federal government.

Infowars has certainly been no except to this and my personal efforts there to wake up their audience to this has been met with hostility and overt censorship. I have repeatedly attempted to post comments under their articles, complete with links to evidence that supports my contentions, and these comments have been immediately deleted. I would provide you links to them, but the problem is, they’re no longer there!

So, why would Alex Jones stifle any dissent about the “sovereignty movement?” Why would he, for example, immediately cut off a caller to his show who posed the same question about the sovereignty movement that I have, calling the young man who called in someone with a “loser attitude,” yet offering no argument against the man’s position? This happened. I heard it with my own ears. Not only did Jones not state his reason for doing so, but he quickly changed the subject. Why is that? Why won’t Jones and company even allow the discussion of the possibility that the sovereignty movement is phony?

The answer is that he knows it is, but he doesn’t want you to know. Alex Jones has a vested interest in promoting this phony sovereignty movement, and it goes beyond simply wanting to save face for his having promoted it. It is not simply a matter of wanting to avoid having to admit he was wrong about it. He hasn’t admitted so and he never will. Why? Because this phony agenda serves the same goal Jones’ own agenda does: to promote and incite violent rebellion against the United States Government for the purpose of serving as a catalyst for martial law and the ushering in of the full police state grid. That is what the Alex Jones Show exists for. Well, that and making lots of money for Alex Jones and Ted Anderson, the owner of GCN (which is an ABC affiliate).

FEMA to Hold Regional “Anti-Terrorism” Drill in July

32 Comments

According to a page on FEMA’s own website, they will be holding a “National Level Exercise” from July 27th through July 31st, 2009.

What is significant about this “exercise” is that it will be the first that is regional in scope, encompassing all of FEMA Region VI (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexcio, Oklahoma and Texas), and, even more significant is that it will also be the first time in our history that troops from foreign countries will be involved in policing American citizens on U.S. soil. Those countries participating will be Australia, Canada, Mexico and the UK. This will be the first time since 1814 (the end of the War of 1812) that armed British troops have been on American soil menacing Americans. The last time the bastards were here, they burned our national capitol building.

The stated objectives of this exercise are, as is typical of our government in recent years, vaguely worded:

* Intelligence/Information Sharing and Dissemination

* Counter-Terrorism Investigation and Law Enforcement

* Air, Border and Maritime Security

* Critical Infrastructure Protection

* Public and Private Sector Alert/Notification and Security Advisories

* International Coordination

So, in other words, they will be spying on us, imposing illegal and unconstitutional “law enforcement” upon us, shutting down access to air, sea and land travel, closing down access to bridges, roads and highways, enlisting the aid of the Infraguard private sector Stazi force against us, and “coordinating” all this with assistance from other nations that have no business being involved in U.S. internal affairs.

FEMA states that this drill will be “White House directed” and “congressionally mandated.” Of course, as many of us know, that really means it’s being mandated by Bilderberg, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission and the international banking cartel that is behind all of these organizations.

Of course, all of this is being done in the name of “fighting terrorism,” and the drill will supposedly begin somewhere outside the U.S. (I’m guessing Mexico), then move into the U.S. It will involve supposed “terrorist attacks” that will then become a threat to the U.S.

On September 11, 2001, the Department of Defense was running military “drills” concurrently with the “attacks” on New York and Washington, D.C. and, as many researchers have pointed out, these drills were used to achieve two things: first, to mask the real attacks that the drills were simulating and, secondly, to send our fighter jets to locations far away from the areas being attacked, thus facilitating the attacks.

I believe this FEMA drill may be something similar. Actually, I believe it may be one of three things:

1. The beginning of a martial law take-over, focusing on the region where they have determined they will have the most resistance first.

2. A drill/exercise, as FEMA claims, to test the waters for a full blown nationwide martial law take-over and to acclimate the public to the next phase of conditioning: i.e., having armed foreign troops blatantly on U.S. soil, violating U.S. citizens’ rights.

3. A drill/exercise designed to see if they can get us to revolt, in which case, they will go from drill mode to the real thing immediately.

As a life-long resident of Oklahoma, I am debating whether to go somewhere outside of FEMA Region VI for the four days of this drill, or  to stay put and make sure my shotgun is locked and loaded. Given possibility number three, I’m thinking maybe a short vacation might be in order.

For Infowars.com’s take on this FEMA exercise, see their article on the subject.

Marti Oakley’s Interview on the Dr. Stanley Monteith Show: The NAIS

Cybersecurity Act of 2009: End of the Internet as We Know It?

2 Comments

S.B. 773 and 778, introduced last week by Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia) and Sen Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and collectively referred to as the “Cybersecurity Act of 2009” appears to be the “legal” last nail in the coffin of the internet.

The language of the act appears to be focused upon protecting the corporate elite’s use of the internet exclusively:

“To secure the continued free flow of commerce within the United States and with its global trading partners through secure cyber communications, to provide for the continued development and exploitation of the internet and intranet communications for such purposes…”

The bill also provides for “…the development of a cadre of information technology specialists to improve and maintain effective cyber security defenses against disruption, and for other purposes.”

This act will also give the Secretary of Commerce new and sweeping powers to regulate the internet. That this power is being invested in the Secretary of Commerce only underscores the emphasis upon reserving the future of the internet for the use of corporate interests, which had been predicted last year.

But, even more chilling is that there appears to be a deliberate program being implemented to carry out false-flag “cyber attacks” to justify the passage of this bill. The bill, itself, states, in Sec. 2. Findings:

“(3) According to the 2009 Annual Threat Assessment, ‘a successful cyber attack against a major financial service provider could severely impact the national economy, while cyber attacks against physical infrastructure computer systems such as those that control power grids or oil refineries have the potential to disrupt services for hours or weeks,’ and that ‘Nation states and criminals target our government and private sector information networks to gain competitive advantage in the commercial sector.

This just so happens to coincide with a report in Computerworld’s Security section, describing alleged “cyber attacks” against “key parts of the U.S. Electrical grid,” which, strangely, isn’t substantiated in any way. There is no mention of where or when this supposed “attack” took place, nor is there any mention of who “the hackers” might be. What is stressed, though, is that “perhaps [it was done] with the intent to cripple the country’s power infrastructure,” and that these undisclosed “hackers” “most likely gained access like any other cybercriminal — by exploiting a bug in software such as Windows or Office…”

This is reiterated by mention, within the Computerworld article, of another such report from the Wall Street Journal. As in the Computerworld article, the Wall Street Journal also makes no disclosure of the identities of these cyber criminals, but says they are “cyberspies” who “…came from China, Russia and other countries…”

So, the stage has been set and the actors are in their places, ready to carry out the elite’s plan to create some sort of “cyber attack” hysteria that will be used to serve as the rationale for some sort of “solution” that will be needed to “protect” us from this sort of thing ever happening again. And, low and behold, concurrent with the supposed “attacks” comes the solution – in the form of the Cybersecurity Act of 2009. How prescient of Jay Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe to have come up with just what we needed and just in the nick of time!

Isn’t it uncanny that these “attacks” happened to occur after months of the media’s calling for the need for “a new internet?” The New York Times has quoted Rick Wesson, the chief executive of Support Intelligence, a computer consulting firm (I wonder if he’ll be one of those among the new “cadre of information technology specialists”?) , as saying, “If you’re looking for a digital Pearl Harbor, we now have the Japanese ships streaming toward us on the horizon.” How convenient.

The End Approaches

19 Comments

As a member of Warn the People, I have been apprised of some new information about the impending police state control grid. What is significant about this information is that, first of all, it comes from FEMA and, secondly, it is of a very timely nature.

The gist of it, which you can hear in its entirety in the two videos here, made by WTP members on the West coast, is that our corporate overlords are planning to “shut down all the banks” by August or September of this year – a scant five or six months from now – and there will be “roadblocks and checkpoints” installed on every major highway, freeway and interstate. The “rural areas” are to be left alone while the cities will become increasingly militarized.

My own analysis, based upon two years of research, shows this is consistent with what I’ve learned about the New World Order plan to take down the United States.

For example, there is the film Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, by Alex Jones, which, in the first few minutes of the film, mentions that we will be “herded into compact cities” and that the outlying rural areas will be left to decay, as part of the plan to “re-wild” the bulk of the North American continent, allowing it to return to nature. This “rewilding” has been hinted at in a recent History Channel documentary titled, Life After People, in which several commentators from various disciplines speculate on how the world would be after the “hypothetical” removal of all human life.

The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force Says YOU are a “Terrorist”

2 Comments

According to a document released by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, intended to “assist uniformed patrol officers in identifying potential domestic terrorism,” those who are “defenders of the Constitution” or who are “against the federal government and the UN,” or who “make numerous references to the U.S. Constitution” are to be considered as “terrorists.”

The FBI alert comes from the Phoenix, Arizona FBI office (201 East Indianola Avenue, Phonenix, AZ 85012) and bears the names and phone numbers of Investigator Al Shearer of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (602-650-3131) and Analyst Terry Chapman of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (602-256-1795) as contacts for further information. The Phoenix FBI office can be reached at 602-650-3163.

In light of this document and the recently publicized Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) document, which makes the same sort of outrageous connections between third party candidates, their supporters and Neo-Nazi hate groups, it has become quite evident that this agenda to train police officers to see patriotic Amercian citizens as enemy combatants to be feared has become widespread. This certainly seems to be the case when one considers the FBI is a federal agency responsible for crime investigation nationwide and would have surely shared the same information with every police department in the United States.

MIAC Report Comes from Missouri “Fusion Center”

9 Comments

In tracking the issue of the recent report on the “Modern Militia Movement” by the Missouri Information Analysis Center – a document that labels Ron Paul supporters and people who respect the Constitution as “militia members” and “terrorists” – I have discovered that the MIAC is one of the many so-called “fusion centers” established around the country to combat voices dissenting against the government.

Established by the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security in 2008, these fusion centers are located in major cities in every state and have facilities to monitor internet websites, chatrooms and message boards for any opinions not favorable to the federal government and to attack such opinions via the use of full-time personnel trained to troll the web looking for voices of dissent.

Lt. John Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol has admitted this MIAC is, indeed a fusion center, established in Jefferson City, that combines the resources of the Department of Homeland Security with those of other agencies.

Interestingly enough, I have received no reply to an email sent to Brandon Middleton of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, whose email address is printed in the MIAC document and who is said to be the person who should be contacted for comments about this “alert.” Is Mr. Middleton hiding under his desk, deathly afraid to reply to this “terrorist?”

Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part III

7 Comments

In part I of this series, I exposed the several phony declarations of “state sovereignty” currently being announced in the media, lately, by pointing out the fact that several of these same states have also been concurrently passing new laws that further violate the Second Amendment, under the pretense of lifting Second Amendment restrictions and “protecting” gun owners from gun confiscations during martial law.

In part II, I went a step farther and pointed out the fact that all of the states “declaring sovereignty” also happen to have FEMA camp locations within their boundaries and that some of them have also played host to martial law training drills for soldiers, police, firefighters and other “first responders” to “emergency” situations like biological and nuclear attacks.

In this part of the series, I shall point out that some of the same states are also either complying with the federal government’s illegal mandate for Real ID, or are currently making preparations to do so.

First, there is Nevada, which has has introduced legislation (SB52) that will bring Nevada into full compliance with Real ID standards. This bill has been introduced by the Nevada State Senate’s Finance Committee.

Then there is Arkansas, which has passed a similar bill (HB 1978), introduced in the Arkansas House of Representatives by Rep. John Edwards (D-Little Rock).

As for the state of Washington, also declaring its “sovereignty,” there seems to be some question as to whether or not its governor’s assurance it would not comply with Real ID are genuine, given the state’s previous apparent acceptance of Real ID.

The same sort of backsliding seems to be occurring in New Hampshire (the state whose motto is “Live free or die”), where there was first an “overwhelming” majority voting to reject Real ID, back in 2006, but in 2008, Governor John Lynch reportedly drafted a letter to ask Homeland Security to merely delay the enforcement of Real ID in New Hampshire. What a difference two years makes.

In Michigan, which also initially said it would reject Real ID, in 2007, the tune has also changed for the worse.

While Missouri has recently announced it will reject Real ID, after all, it had originally approved funding to put into place a “verification hub” to accommodate Real ID, in 2008. Can they be expected to reject Real ID, or will they flip-flop again and use those funds as planned earlier? Given that it is the Missouri Information Analysis Center (directed by the governor and the Missouri State Highway Patrol) that has recently released to police officers and highway patrolmen an “alert” branding all patriots – including supporters of third party candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr – as “militia members,” to be feared as enemies of law enforcement in Missouri, it seems probable.

Oklahoma – first to “declare sovereignty,” has also taken a less than certain stance on Real ID, first approving of it, then appearing to back away from that decision. But, as I pointed out in Part II, Okahoma has several FEMA detention centers, including the main federal inmate transfer center west of the Mississippi, right here in Oklahoma City. So, again, what are we to believe about the sincerity of Oklahoma legislators’ intentions?

California, another of the states alleging to declare its “sovereignty,” has apparently caved on Real ID, first passing a law complying with it in 2006, then passing an initiative that prepares for it in 2007.

Georgia, also pretending to declare state sovereignty, has never seemed to have a problem with the contradictory approval of Real ID for its unwitting citizens, even going so far as to deny its citizens access to the Hartsfield-Atlanta Airport if they did not comply.

Indiana, another state supposedly declaring its sovereignty from the federal government, was among the first states to eagerly adopt Real ID. So much for that “sovereignty.”

As of 2007, Kansas, yet another of the several states “declaring sovereignty,” said it had no problem with Real ID, either.

Alabama, another “early adopter” of Real ID, has since also appeared to (maybe) flip-flop on the issue, making the pretense, later, of rejecting it, but, being among those states that has FEMA detention facilities while “declaring its sovereignty,” what are we to believe is the truth?

Maine, after pretending to stand against Real ID, in 2007, has, as of 2008, caved in to it. Sovereignty? Yeah, right.

As for those “sovereignty movement” states that appear to be rejecting Real ID, as I pointed out in Parts I and II, there are other concerns which make it doubtful that they will, ultimately follow through with their rejection of Real ID.

As with the so-called “sovereignty movement,” the “rebellion” against Real ID appears to be all for show – a contrivance to lull Americans into a state of false security, believing their states will protect them from the fascist federal regime, while, at the same time, those same states are preparing for the implementation of martial law in America.

If you have any further doubts of this, look into each of the “sovereign” states’ recent legislative track records and ask yourself if the blizzard of laws they are all feverishly passing lately either rejects or supports the rise of a fascist police state. If you actually bother to read those laws, I think you will find more support for it than rejection.

Ultimately, when a government tells you it will voluntarily limit its own powers, you can be sure that’s a warning that the opposite is about to occur, for no government in history has ever willingly relinquished its power – and none, once they have it – ever will.

Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part II

2 Comments

Continuing my investigation into those states that are supposedly declaring their “sovereignty” from the federal government under the Tenth Amendment, I have added further to my case that the so-called “sovereignty movement” is a farce used to conceal the several states’ cooperation with an increasingly fascistic federal government.

This additional evidence comes in the form of the various martial law drills and exercises that have been conducted in recent months across the nation.

Colorado, one of the states declaring it’s “sovereignty,” was host to martial law drills in Denver during the 2008 presidential campaign, as well as in Colorado Springs. Colorado has two FEMA camp locations.

Alabama hosts a company named Body Guard and Tactical Security (BATS), which supplied personnel for the martial law takeover drill in New Orleans following Katrina (see the eighth paragraph of this article). In addition, Alabama is host to six FEMA camp locations.

The town of Helena, Arkansas was under martial law in the summer of 2008. Arkansas is among the states declaring its sovereignty. Arkansas also hosts several FEMA camps.

California has held martial law and FEMA camp drills since 2001. California’s governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger is an admitted admirer of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, as well as being the son of a Nazi police officer who was in the SS in WWII. California is also among those states now supposedly declaring it’s “sovereignty” from the federal government. California has several FEMA camp locations, including Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The Third Infantry’s 1st Brigade, which returned from Iraq in October 2008 to police the United States in violation of the 1876 Posse Comitatus Act, is under the command of NORTHCOM (also a violation of Posse Comitatus, as well as the Constitution) and is stationed at Fort Stewart in Georgia. Georgia is also a state alleging to declare “sovereignty” from the federal government. Fort Benning, among several other locations in Georgia, has a FEMA detention center.

Recently, there were martial law drills in Hayden, Idaho. Idaho is yet another of the several states declaring its “sovereignty.” Idaho also has a probable FEMA detention camp.

Indianapolis, Indiana hosted martial law drills in 2008, disguised as “urban warfare drills” for troops going to Iraq. Indiana is also “declaring sovereignty.” Indiana has several FEMA camps.

Missouri’s SB1212 calls for, among other things, “members of the Missouri National Guard [to be] ordered to active duty in the case of a declaration of martial law.” Missouri is another of the states supposedly not cooperating with that sort of thing anymore, having declared its “sovereignty.” Missouri will also host “detainees.”

A U.S. Marine drill sergeant boasted, in early 2008, that the U.S. military is preparing troops to “fire on women and children wherever appropriate, ‘show no mercy’ etc.” and that martial law and FEMA camps are being prepared for in the U.S. and prisoner boxcars are being pre-positioned in Montana for this purpose. Montana is also among those states that has supposedly declared “sovereignty.”

An alleged FEMA camp is located in Northernwestern New Hampshire, near Lake Hampshire. New Hampshire is also among the states now declaring sovereignty.

The states declaring “sovereignty” under the Tenth Amendment also include Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.  All of these states also host FEMA detention facilities.

So, given the track record of the states “declaring sovereignty,” can any of these “resolutions” be worth the paper they were printed on?

Sovereignty Hypocrisy

2 Comments

I have recently come to suspect that the “sovereignty” being declared from the federal government by several states is a sham – a clever ruse designed to placate the people while their states actually prepare for the coming martial law.

In part, I have based this suspicion on the fact that, among those states declaring their supposed “sovereignty” have been several that have been busily passing new gun control laws that claim to “protect” their respective citizens from gun confiscations during martial law (a very telling statement in itself), while, at the same time, actually facilitating it.

But, there is yet more evidence that some of the same states declaring “sovereignty” from the federal government are otherwise cooperating with the federal government.

Take, for example, the unemployment benefits extended to the states by the new stimulus bill passed by the Obama administration. While there are five states (Alaska, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina and Idaho) whose governors have said they will refuse the acceptance of those funds on principal, the remaining forty-five states have not done so. Among them is Oklahoma, the first state to issue a declaration of sovereignty. It has not only accepted those funds, but is already distributing them, as of February 28th.

While Mississippi’s governor is among those refusing the funds (and Mississippi is also one of the states declaring sovereignty), its SB2036, a law that supposedly prevents gun confiscations during martial law, actually facilitates the confiscation of guns by leaving it up to a police officer’s sole discretion. Considering what we know about cops having been trained to take our guns in recent years, I leave it to you to decide whether this Mississippi law does anything to protect Mississippi’s gun owners or not. Refusing the stimulus funds (at least for unemployment benefits, anyway – we don’t know what other funds Mississippi may or may not be accepting from the stimulus pie), while it may seem aligned with the purposes of declaring state sovereignty, is easily done if the long-term plan is for martial law – a situation in which those extended unemployment benefits will no doubt be revoked, anyway. But, preparing for martial law by hurriedly passing laws that help to implement it – as SB2036 actually does, despite the claims to the contrary, is a glaring contradiction of the entire purpose and principle of declaring state sovereignty, is it not?

As for Louisiana’s record, the Katrina debacle speaks volumes about their willingness to go along with federal plans for martial law – they’ve already done it, during the martial law practice run that was the response to Katrina, during which firearms were seized from the population of New Orleans, leaving law abiding citizens (many of whom were not affected by the flooding) without any means to protect themselves from looters for weeks.

Well, Now FEMA Camps are Official

Leave a comment

Its is said, among those of us in the patriot and truth movement, that you know it’s true when the mainstream media mentions it. There is an unspoken tactic of theirs of making what amount to annoucements of what is usually, by then, already known of by patriots and truthers, though still unknown to the general public, and this is a pattern that has persisted for years, now.

Well, when Glenn Beck mentions FEMA camps on Fox & Friends, you know we’ve arrived at the point at which they are admitting it is real – especially since Beck admitted that, while trying to “debunk” FEMA camps, he could not do so.

Preparing Us for the Control of Food and the Confiscation of Guns

Leave a comment

It looks like Dallas is leading the way into the New World Order, lately by having a “guns for food” program. According to the Dallas Morning News, this ploy has gathered up 147 guns in exchange for $50 grocery store cards.

The implications of this are fairly clear, I think. They are preparing us for the eventuality in which we will be told we must turn in our firearms if we want to eat.

The net effect of this program is both to get guns out of the hands of citizens, as well as to condition us for the coming food rationing.

Governors Address Pandemics & Continuity of Government

Leave a comment

According to an article on Government Technology.com, despite the fact several of our states have declared their sovereignty from the federal government, the governors of, presumably, all the states are being trained and recruited by that same federal government to participate in “continuity of government” planning. According to the article, the National Governors Association Center (NGA) has released a “new issue brief” to their members – i.e., the governors of all fifty states – on Sustaining the State Workforce: Strategies for Effective Pandemic Planning.

Aside from the glaring contradiction between declaring state sovereignty, on the one hand and then going along with feds in preparing for the next false-flag attack on Americans, it is becoming alarmingly obvious, given recent news stories, that this false-flag attack will likely come in the form of a biological attack made on some U.S. city or cities.

In 2008, the NGA released Pandemic Preparedness in the States: An Assessment of Progress and Opportunity. One wonders what “progress” it is to have a biological attack on U.S. soil, let alone what “opportunities” exist in that – as well as for whom.

The article goes on to say that, in 2006, NGA released Preparing for a Pandemic Influenza: A Primer for Governors and Senior State Officials. Here, again, it certainly looks as though not only the feds, but their lackies in the states, as well, have been planning this for some time, now. In truth, such a catastrophe has been planned for – indeed, called for – by the global elites who actually run our country from behind the scenes.

Given all this, plus the various state gun grabbing laws that are being feverishly passed, disguised as laws to “protect” us against gun confiscations during martial law, plus the Obama administration’s noises about youth corps, the threat made to the U.S. Senate by its leadership that if didn’t pass the banker bailout bill, there would be martial law in their states, and many other items that have been recent news, one doesn’t have to be a genius to see what is in the works, folks.

Feds Cut Nevadans Some Slack on Real ID Application, But This is Still an Infringement of Their 4th Amendment Rights

3 Comments

This article makes it seem as if Nevadans are getting some sort of lucky break or that they’ve won some sort of concession, but the truth is that this Real ID program is still a violation of the Fourth Amendment’s protections against invasion of privacy.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The real issue with Real ID is that it is not merely an identification card, but an RFID Chip, which can (and will be) used to track an individual’s every move. So, not only is Real ID in violation of the provisions of the Constitution that protect us from having to divulge sensitive information about ourselves to whatever authority demands it, but it is also an Orwellian technology that will make it impossible for anyone to go about their daily lives without being tracked, traced and monitored everywhere they go. That – not the expense to the states of implementing such a program – is the central issue in the fight against Real ID.

“An Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago has revealed the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.

But as the required meetings and calls with FEMA and DHS continue over a two year period their request become more unusual, raising suspicions of county officials

We want to know every important thing in this county. We want to know where police departments are. Where weapons are stored. Hazardous material. Where can we land a helicopter. Where are the airports. How big a plane can you land at the airport. Where are all the bridges. Where are all the power stations. Where are all the generating stations.Where are all the substations. They literally wanted to know where everything was. Im sitting there thinking man if there was ever martial law. This kind of information is exactly the kind of stuff they are going to want. Were just laying it all out for them right there.

During the legally mandated meetings held with FEMA and DHS different disaster scenarios were reveled to county officials:

In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds. Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times. FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere. The sheriffs department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks. The county was asked to make plans for hardening of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town. The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago.”

I am urging that everyone listen to the accompanying audio from this radio interview with the county official mentioned above. It is quite chilling. To listen, just scroll down to the embedded You Tube video in which it’s contained:

Denver Mint printing the Amero?

Does anyone have any additional information on this?  IF Amero coins have ben shipped to China, when will they appear in circulation? 

URGENT *** NEW “AMERO” PAPER CURRENCY EXPOSED!

http://halturnershow.blogspot.com/2008/12/urgent-new-amero-paper-currency-exposed.html

North Bergen, NJ — To the chagrin of the government, I have obtained new “AMERO” paper currency notes! You know, the “AMERO” . . . . the new currency that is going to replace the US Dollar, The Canadian Dollar and the Mexican Peso? Yea, the new currency that all three governments claim doesn’t exist. . . . I have it. Here’s what a 50 Amero note looks like:

In September, 2007 – over a full year ago – I first broke the story about AMEROcoinsbeing minted secretly at the Denver Mint. After that story ran, the Denver Mint announced on its web site that they were closing public tours of the Mint for 10 – 14 days in order to make renovations to the tourist area of the mint.

My sources inside the Mint, however, reported Treasury officials were outraged that someone had leaked info about the AMERO to me and they closed the Denver Mint to the public so as to secretly move the AMEROS out of the Mint to prevent further leaks.

In October, 2008, I received word that the U.S. government shipped 800 Billion AMEROS to the China development bank. I did a story on that (here) and obtained an actual AMERO coin from that shipment!

I placed a video of the coin on YouTube, showing the coin and explaining that there is a deliberate effort underway at the highest levels of our government to intentionally exhaust the dollar as a currency. Over 600,000 people worldwide watched that video.

Two days ago, YouTube/Google notified me that my video had been deleted and my account permanently closed at the request of the United States Treasury Department. The Treasury department told YouTube/Google that my video was “destabilizing the U.S. Dollar and was thus a threat to national security.”

Here we are, just two days later and my sources have once again come through; this time with proof the government is secretly printing new AMEROpapercurrency.

Not only do I have the 50 AMERO note, give look at the 20 and 100 AMERO notes below!

Not a single American citizen has been officially asked if they want a new currency. Not a single member of Congress has voted on authorizing a new currency. Yet a new currency is already being printed and quietly distributed around the world. This is being done without the consent of the American people, without a vote by Congress and has been intentionally covered up by every official who has been questioned about it.

The REASON they are creating a new currency has to do with how they plan to get rid of our national debt. On October 16, 2008, the “Global-Europe Anticipation Bulletin” told its subscribers that the present U.S. Dollar will be demonetized (it won’t be “money” anymore) and a new currency imposed. “Old dollars” will be devalued by ninety percent (90%).

Think about that for a moment. A 90% devaluation. That means checking accounts, savings accounts, IRA’s 401-K’s, Pension plans, Certificates of Deposit. . . . are all worth ninety percent LESS than previously.

This AMERO currency will allow the government to literally grab 90% of all our life savings and owe 90% less than they presently do in one fell swoop! They get out of debt and the rest of us are left totally destitute. Broke. Busted. Poor. Helpless.

I believe the people perpetrating this secret currency change are in for personal visits of a violent nature. I think there are folks out here in real America who will not take kindly to having been deliberately lied-to.

I believe my fellow Americans might — just might — decide it is time to . . . . . “discipline”. . . . . the public officials who have undertaken this outrage without our consent.

It’s a tough thing to have to physically discipline a mis-behaving adult, but I say now, I’m up for doing just that.

There are officials in this country who deserve to get the shit kicked out of them and I really look forward to having the chance to do it. If they think their puny little Federal Reserve Police force can do anything about it, they’re sadly mistaken.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS IMMEDIATELY.If they are already printing paper currency, the destruction of the US dollar cannot be far away. We are ALL in grave danger of losing our life savings to this currency scam………….

Canadians fighting the Security & Prosperity Partnership

***PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY***

—–

November 2, 2008

To our Allies and Neighbours,

As some people may have been informed, in South-West Ontario, today has been declared a regional Day of Action against the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). A little over a month ago, a callout was sent from Anti-War@Laurier (AW@L)—an activist group in Kitchener-Waterloo—asking for autonomous actions targeting companies on the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) and Federal “(Mis)-representatives.”  The motto for the day is simply, “challenge corporate power.”

This letter is asking for something equally simple. Check out AW@L’s new NO SPP campaign page and consider taking some sort of local action, such as contacting your local MP or targeting a NACC company in your community.

The SPP is an agreement between the Government Executives of Canada, the US and Mexico. Its only official advisors are the corporate elites of the NACC. The SPP reveals a militarized corporate oligarchy and their implementation of, what has been called, “NAFTA on crack.” It is imperative to focus on education about, and taking action against, the SPP, because as more information becomes publicly available, the deeper ramifications of this undemocratic partnership become alarmingly apparent. 

Some of the most disturbing initiatives of the SPP include the following. First, there is the creation of Canada Command and an “expansion and indefinite extension” of NORAD, resulting in a newly militarized ‘Fortress North America’ supporting the American 21st century Global War on Terror.  Second, the post-9/11 Smart Border Declaration has been expanded, Americanizing (and in turn, militarizing) our border policies. The same has been occurring with countless trade, health, regulatory, and environmental policies.

Finally, the Tar Sands expansion is a linchpin of the SPP. Both the SPP and the five-fold expansion of Tar Sands production that it calls for are tied to energy security, military securitization of infrastructure, expansion of unethical migrant labour programs at the expense of immigration, more destruction of Indigenous land and rights, and the notorious “NAFTA Super-Highway/corridors.”

It needs to be understood that the military and corporate agendas of the SPP play off of each other; post-9/11, the US military pushed for a closing of the border, so the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE) pushed for a new continental trade vision that projects military and economic security as “inseparable.” The CCCE, along with a few select Government Ministers, combined with efforts of the US Council on Foreign Relations, US Chamber of Commerce and the Council of the Americas, all convinced the North American Heads of State to agree to the SPP. 

Some people have denied that the SPP exists at all, but government websites and a massive paper trail say that the Agreement is very real and far reaching. Some members of the NACC, as well as some critics of the SPP, have recently suggested that the partnership is dead. However, both SPP documents as well as critics have also said that, while the SPP agreement and the NACC formal advisory process may come to end, it will only be to have them replaced by newer agreements that pursue advanced versions of the same agenda. Recently, Liberal and Conservative advisors have indicated that a major upcoming task for Canada will be to convince the new American President to stick with NAFTA, which means sticking with the SPP. The military agreements and restructuring, the energy plans, the border securitization and law enforcement militarization, the environmental destruction and the waves of deportation and persecution of immigrants and minorities—these injustices will not be undone by a newer articulation of “deep integration.”

In response, we urge people to take action and say no to the SPP. Challenge corporate power and target NACC companies and federal (mis)representatives. Having examined the ramifications of the SPP from primary source documents and notable analyses, we feel it is paramount to make this information readily accessible. Part of our presentation of this research is available as a document called Understanding the SPP – Following the Paper Trail. We hope that it will be a useful resource in the effort to make sense of the integration agenda of the modern corporate oligarchy.

We appreciate any feedback or communication that anyone has to offer.

In peace and solidarity,

 

 Anti-War @ Laurier (AW@L)

SPP Busted….Now Called NASRA by Tom Deweese/Canada Free Press

SPP Busted….Now Called NASRA

Time to call a halt to the SPP

Regulatory Area, NASRA. by Tom Deweese of Canada Free Press

The Three Amigos are attempting an old-fashioned switcheroo, much like the 1930’s grifters portrayed by Newman and Redford in The Sting.

Frustrated that alert and clear-thinking Americans and Canadians see the nefarious purposes behind the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), President Bush has apparently concluded that dog won’t hunt – at least not under the moniker of SPP.  In a surprisingly simple-minded approach, the President has apparently decided changing a skunks’ name changes the fact that it still stinks. Shame on President Bush! If he weren’t up to his neck in treachery, he would not need to hide his activities from the nation.

Last year’s secret SPP summit meeting in Montebello focused on finding ways to get the people to swallow the idea of the collaboration leading to the North American Union, and to quiet its critics. Presumably, these were the topics of discussion when members of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) met with the leaders behind closed doors. The NACC is a largely secretive advisory council to the SPP consisting of representatives of such companies as Wal Mart, Chevron Oil, and Lockheed-Martin.

An internal memo from Canada’s Foreign Affairs and Internal Trade ministry documents that the NACC was urged to launch a public relations campaign to counter growing criticism of the trilateral cooperative that is a cornerstone of the building North American Union. According to the memo, Leaders discussed some of the difficulties of the SPP, including the lack of popular support and the failure of the public to understand the competitive challenges confronting North America. The memo emphasized the NACC members should (play) a role in communicating the merits of North American collaboration.  Am I the only one who remembers the definition of collaboration, at least as it applies to nations and their citizens?

Further, in point of fact, these competitive challenges do not face North America…they face global corporations doing business in North America. The SPP has nothing to do with ensuring the security and prosperity of the United States citizens, or U.S. corporations would first and foremost conduct business as Americans. The Partnership is between government and business; it values the nation’ citizens only as human resources.

Many corporate CEOS now seem to favor former CEO of GE Jack Welsh’ advice (as far as they practically can) that, the ideal factory would be built on a barge” so it could be hauled around the world to low-wage areas, where it could operate without labor rules, environmental protections or other standards.

Following the advice in March of the Frazier Institute, a Canadian think tank, the SPP will forthwith and hereafter (until another name is required) be known as the North American Standards and Regulatory Area. I say, until another name is required in full faith that as growing numbers of Americans learn of this treachery at the highest levels of our government, they will resoundingly oppose it.

Of greater significance than the name change is the Institutes call to expand and speed up the process of integration. One Canadian reporter said of last years SPP Summit that the SPP was dead and defunct. Another recently stated the SPP has collapsed under a heap of conspiratorial rubbish. This is pure garbage.

The conspiratorial label is pretty amusing, though, considering the Frazier Institute report suggested the name North American Union, or NAU, be dropped in favor of the new name. Unfortunately, the SPP is far from dead. But the growing public attention, and profound disapproval, obviously worries those sneaking around to secret meetings in dimly lit corners with secret files.

Results of a brand new American Policy Center survey on the SPP clearly show when Americans understand the truth, they say No! in phenomenal numbers. People are overwhelmingly opposed to the harmonization and integration, both economically and politically, of Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.

Even the name of the Fourth SPP Annual Summit was changed to the North American Leaders Summit. There’ an oxymoron for you; Leaders indeed!

Enough, already! President Bush, its time to tell the American people:

Whats on the table; whats the big picture?

What have the 20 SPP Working Groups been working on these past three years, specifically?

What promises have been made to the leaders of Canada and Mexico; to members of the NACC?

Will the 51 NACC proposals made to SPP negotiators last year, these regulatory changes that dont require legislative approval, favor narrow corporate interests over Americans welfare, freedom, and liberty?

What regulatory changes have already been made?

Why, President Bush, are you involved in secret meetings and negotiations involving the very sovereignty of the United States without the advice and consent of Congress, the American people, or even under scrutiny of the Fourth Estate, even as largely worthless as it is?

The wizards of warfare

Washington’s wizards of warfare already have us trapped in Iraq and Afghanistan, and now, rather than trying to get free of those snares, they are doing their very best to add Iran and the wolves in Russia to this insanity.

 

Can anyone with anything more than excrement for brains not see their deliberate plan to destroy America; and they are sadistically toying with our country during the last, exquisitely painful hours of her life?

 

If the reader is so uninformed as to be offended by these accusations, let me add a few more to the list. Then, just maybe, a little bell will start ringing in your dysfunctional mind and you will turn off that electronic propagandist, cancel your news-paper, and start hunting for more reliable information.

 

For the time being, I will ignore all of the atrocities committed by previous administrations and concentrate on what the present war mongering traitors in all three branches of our government have done. Better yet, I will make it a test of your ignorance.

 

Are you aware that the so called Free Trade deals such as NAFTA are really Slave Trade deals because they allow corporations to move our manufacturing capability to other countries where the population is willing to work for slave wages, out source American jobs to other countries, and redistribute Americas wealth to other countries, which will bankrupt us and make us more controllable?

 

Are you aware that your so called president is negotiating with Canada and Mexico to form a North American Union, in preparation of a regional system of government that surrenders our Nations sovereignty, and Constitutional Republic?

 

Are you aware that Congress has allowed construction to begin on a Foreign owned super highway from Mexico to Canada that will have eminent domain over private property?

 

Are you aware that Congress has surrendered it’s authority to the executive branch, and therefore is guilty of treason?

 

Are you aware that our government is selling public services to foreign owned

companies?

 

Are you aware that the Supreme Court does not have the authority to interpret the Constitution of the United States of America?

 

Are you aware that our government is under the control of International Bankers who are controlling corporations that are assuming control of the world’s economy?

 

Are you aware that the pharmaceutical and food industries are poisoning citizens in every nation?

 

Are you aware that the chemical industries have effectively assumed control through patents, of the seeds necessary to produce food?

 

Are you aware that not one single rich person in the entire world has the authority to finance a national, propagandist free, news-paper or TV station?

 

After realizing that few if any propagandized citizens would read this list, I have decided to put the burden of becoming knowledgeable citizens on the reader, where it belongs.

 

If you are smart enough to have realized I have a legitimate reason for my disgust with the majority of my fellow citizens, then the following is a list of sites and essay’s to continue your education, as they are much more articulate and gifted writers than I.

 

When, after becoming aware of what has been going on, and your concern for your children’s future is as heart-breaking as mine, please contact me at

The US Is On The Verge Of Utter Financial Collapse And Martial Law

William Cormier has written another of his articles meant to wake us up from our slumber.  Middle class America is being systematically killed off with corporate greed, corrupt politicians and parasites of all kinds. 

US Is On The Verge Of Utter Financial Collapse And Martial Law

by William Cormier                                http://www.opednews.com

Excerpted from the article:
“Lobbyists are nothing more than legally sanctioned con artists and a system where bribing America’s Congress has become legal and against the interests of the general public; to bring accountability back to government and stop the bribing of our Congress, we need sweeping legislation that will stop this form of bribery – but don’t expect it soon, as Congress will be extremely reluctant to kill the goose that is laying golden eggs into the campaign coffers and hidden bank accounts of those who vote for money rather than patriotism. If there were any justice left in our nation, there’s little doubt that a huge segment of our Congress could be indicted for bribery and actions that I believe amount to treason. Yes, the wording of this particular Op-Ed is harsh, but with Bush essentially “green lighting” an attack on Iran by Israel, it’s vital that the public take action and impeach Bush and Cheney before they are allowed to finish-off their destruction of America!”

 

A secret meeting of Congress discusses immanent martial law.

Included in the article is this reference on the recent closed door session of congress:…………………………….

B.A. Brooks
The United American Freedom Foundation
March 13, 2008

On March 13th 2008 there was a secret closed door meeting of The United States House Of Representatives in Washington. In the history of The United States this is only the fourth time a secret meeting was held by the house. Even though Representatives are sworn to secrecy by House Rules XVII, some of the members were so shocked, horrified, furious, and concerned about the future of America by what was revealed to them inside the secret meeting, that they have started to leak this secret information to independent news agencies around the world. The mass media said almost nothing about the secret meeting of the House, mentioning only one of the items being discussed. (The new surveillance techniques that are going to be used by the U.S. Government to watch all American citizens). The story was first released in a newspaper out of Brisbane, Australia revealing the contents of the secret U.S. Government meeting and plans for America including all of it’s citizens. Shortly there after, David J. Meyer from Last Trumpet Ministries found it and made it more available for the world to see.

Here is what was revealed:

* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Economy to occur sometime in late 2008


* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Government finances sometime in mid 2009


* The possibility of Civil War inside the United States as a result of the collapse


* The advance round-ups of “insurgent U.S. Citizens” likely to move against the government


* The detention of those rounded up at The REX 84 Camps constructed throughout the United States


* The possibility of public retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses


* The location of safe facilities for members of Congress and their families to reside during massive civil unrest
* The necessary and unavoidable merger of The U.S. with Canada and Mexico establishing The North American Union
* The issuance of a new currency called the AMERO for all three nations as an economic solution.

“Except for a few hundred thousand U.S. Patriots, most Americans have no clue what has really been going on within The United States over the past 100 years, and the sad thing is that most do not want to know the truth. The further you look into the rabbit hole, the deeper it gets. Go to any currency conversion site and convert U.S. dollars to Euros so you can see for yourself the massive decline of the dollar. Look at how much money is and has been spent on the Iraq War to date, ($12 billion per month). Look at our currency and when it stopped being backed by gold. MUCH MORE

Stop The NAFTA Highway in Minnesota

Leave a comment

 

 

 

We are forming a central Minnesota working group dedicated to passing legislation that would make illegal in the state of Minnesota, any efforts by any official, elected or appointed, any business group or interest, or any individual or groups of individuals, to discuss, negotiate, enable or otherwise compel the implementation of the NAFTA super highway through our state.

 

The NAFTA highway will eat up hundreds of thousands of acres of land, much of it farm and small communities.  The actual highway, which will be six football fields wide, will have exits only at specified points where a military checkpoint will be established. 

 

The numerous exits from the existing interstate system will be eliminated effectively establishing a barrier to free travel.  Our country will be split into two sections if this highway system is allowed to go forward.  You will need RFID documentation to enter or exit the highway and will have to state your purpose for either action.  

 

The central NAFTA highway is only one of three planned that will divide the country into sections and effectively cut off unauthorized travel. 

 

The NAFTA highway has been contracted by CINTRA a multinational corporation originating in Spain with ties to Mexico.  As it is, our communities are under siege from illegal immigrants.  This highway, which would come out of Mexico and go all the way into Canada, will only facilitate increased drug trafficking and crime and an increase in illegal immigration. 

 

This highway has been planned for more than ten years and is now incorporated into the Security & Prosperity Partnership and is being facilitated by the many working groups assembled by the current administration in violation of our Constitution.  Also at stake is the sovereignty of our state as declared in the 14th

amendment.   

 

Although several states have passed resolutions forbidding the NAFTA highway construction in their states, Minnesota has no such plans.  Not one of our senators or representatives has put forth any initiative to stop this highway and protect our state.

 

We are looking for people interested in writing legislation prohibiting any agent of any kind, associated with the government or not, from engaging in any activity which would promote this highway. 

 

The self determination of our state is at stake.  If you would be interested in working on this project please contact:

Harper Shuts down Coordinated Access to Information Requests (CAIR)

Leave a comment

Apparently taking its cue’s from the Bush administration that has busied itself with reclassifying many formerly released documents under the Freedom of Information Act, fearful of American’s knowing too much about the corruption of our own government. Stephan Harper, Canada’s Advocate for the SPP and the NAU, has gone one step further. MP Harper shut the entire information center down!

CAIR is the counterpart to our FREEDOM OF Information Act.

What is it that these two governments are afraid for you to know? These are the actions of dictators.

Received May 8, 2008 from the Canadian Action Party and Connie Fogal:

Stephen Harper has just shut down the Coordinated Access to Information Requests system site. The CBC blog about it is overwhelmingly expressing alarm.  Here is a petition you can sign calling for CAIRS to be brought back http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/saveCAIRS/

Write a letter to your MP and MLA demanding that CAIRS be re-established.  It cost $50,000 a year to operate, a small price to pay for government transparency.  It provides invaluable information to organizations and researchers allowing them to see what the government has been doing behind closed doors.

Please sign the petition write a letter and call in to your local radio shows to raise this issue.  Forward this letter to your contacts ASAP.

Thanks

If you think this can’t or won’t happen here in the States, think again. It’s happening already. An informed population is a danger to the government. An educated and informed population will no longer be tolerated.

For all you nay sayers that say there isn’t a move to “harmonize” the US, Canada and Mexico into a region, take a look!!

Trilateral Cooperation Charter

This would be the same Trilateral Commission that is claimed to be either a myth, a hoax, or just some benevolent group that has no interest in creating the North American Union or a New World Order.  A link to the entire document is included at the end.  This is a non-governmental agency being paid for by taxpayers and private interests of all three countries.  Please note when reading the entire document that Mexico, supposedly reknowned for its lack of medical care for its citizens and poor living conditions, was somehow deemed to be the appropriate authority to head up health fraud for all three countries. 

The working groups mentioned are all on the taxpayer payrolls somewhere…..but obviously hidden in some none related bill or funded through creative bookkeeping our government is so adept at. 

 

Excerpted from the entire document:

 

C. Working Groups 

The Trilateral Cooperation undertakes its work through Working Groups. Three Co-chairs representing each country head each Working Group. The Co-chairs are responsible for identifying issues for discussion and for seeking the Steering Committee’s support. Current Working Groups include the following:

  • Canada-US-Mexico Compliance Information Group (CUMCIG): Its purpose is to increase the exchange of emergency preparedness and response, compliance and enforcement information between the three countries. The Group coordinates related enforcement activities with counterpart agencies in appropriate cases. Lead Country: United States of America. 
  •  

  • Mexico-US-Canada Health Fraud Group (MUCH): Its purpose is to maintain a formal framework for cooperation in combating health fraud and to identify appropriate lines of communication to ensure a continual exchange of information on compliance and enforcement activities among the three countries. Lead Country: Mexico. 
  •  

  • Laboratory Cooperation Working Group: Its purpose is to establish and maintain cooperation in the area of regulatory laboratory operations. Through continual discussions, this group is expected to share information with a view to building confidence in our respective analytical results. Lead Country: Canada. 
  •  

  • Canada-US-Mexico Training Working Group: Its purpose is to share existing training information, establish a communication strategy between the Training Working Group and the other Working Groups, and to assist in identifying training needs of staff who will be engaged in Trilateral work. Lead Country: United States of America.” 

http://www.fda.gov/oia/charter.html#mission

And to think this document was actually produced on the FDA website.  What are “working groups” who operate without oversight, in violation of the Logan Act, without informed consent or approval by the citizens of any of the three countries, doing interacting with the FDA?  Under what authority are they “harmonizing” the healthcare and economies of three soveriegn countries? 

How far will this go before you decide to stand up and object?  How much are you willing to forfeit before you say ‘enough!”

GLOBAL ELITE GATHER IN D.C./Trilateral Commission members want suffering U.S. taxpayers to shell out even more money

3 Comments

From: American Free Press

The Trilateral Commission—one of the three most powerful globalist groups in the world—held closed-door meetings right here in Washington, D.C. from April 25 to 28. True to form, those members of the media who knew about the meeting—or were themselves participants in the proceedings—refused to discuss what went on inside or report on the attendees. Luckily, AFP’s own editor, Jim Tucker, was on the scene to bust this clandestine confabulation wide open.

 

By James P. Tucker Jr.

Luminaries at the Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington expressed confidence that they own all three major presidential candidates, who, despite political posturing, will support sovereignty-surrendering measures such as NAFTA and the “North American Union.”

“John has always supported free trade, even while campaigning before union leaders,” said one. “Hil and Barack are pretending to be unhappy about some things, but that’s merely political posturing. They’re solidly in support.”

He was referring to Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

Mrs. Clinton, they noted, held strategy sessions as first lady on how to get Congress to approve NAFTA “without changes.” As president, they agreed, she would do no more than “dot an i or cross a t.”

Candidate Obama has not denied news reports in Canada that his top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee, assured Canadian diplomats that the senator would keep NAFTA intact and his anti-trade talk is just “campaign rhetoric.”

PETRIFIED ABOUT PAUL

While they are confident they can deal with any “potential president,” the Trilateralists paid huge tribute to Ron Paul in an equally large twist of irony, by expressing alarm that he is causing “significant future damage.”

They expressed concern that Paul’s rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting “their political education.” They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker.

The reasons Paul’s “education campaign” strikes fear into Trilateral hearts are obvious. Paul would refuse to surrender an ounce of U.S. sovereignty to an international organization and TC wants world government.

Paul would immediately bring U.S. troops home from Iraq, Afghanistan and from 130 UN “peacekeeping” missions around the globe. TC wants to enjoy war profiteering and global power. Paul would abolish the federal income tax while the TC wants to pile on a global tax payable to the UN.

The formal agenda was loaded with everything Paul and American patriots detest: higher taxes, more foreign giveaways, more immigration, both legal and illegal, into the United States and “engaging Iran,” among others.

AMERICA NEEDS TO PAY HER FAIR SHARE?

The Trilaterals got down to real work on Saturday, April 26, with a high-powered panel called “U.S. Foreign and Domestic Policy: Broad Outlines for a New Administration.”

It was presided over by journalistic pimp David Gergen, who will write nothing about TC in his magazine, U.S News and World Report. Also participating were Kenneth Duberstein, former White House chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan; Strobe Talbot, president of the Brookings Institution and former deputy secretary of state; and Joseph Nye, former assistant secretary of defense. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state and long-time Bilderberg leader, was present and listed as a participant. But a TC staff member crossed his name out. Some speculated he had throat problems.

This panel had these orders for the next president: increase foreign aid across the board because “America does not pay its fair share,” pay up the arrears in UN dues, allow as many immigrants into the United States as want to come and provide “amnesty” for illegal aliens already here.

Little, if anything, was said about the fact that American taxpayers pay one-fourth of the UN’s operating costs and one-third of the cost of 130 “peacekeeping missions” or the fact that immigrants from South America depress wages here and the average immigrant family costs the government thousands of dollars a year in welfare, health and other “benefits.”

Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank and another long-time Bilderberg boy, largely echoed these views in a sweetheart “interview” by another journalistic strumpet, Lionel Barber, editor of The Financial Times, who will obediently report nothing.

FIGHT WARMING; ALLOW IMMIGRANTS

There were “subgroup” meetings on “climate change,” “water and sanitation” and “migration and development.” Every nation, especially the U.S., should spend big bucks to fight “global warming,” they agreed. The United States should spend more “because Americans cause the most pollution,” one argued. Americans should send more money to Africa so natives can drink clean water and scrub themselves, they said.

Antonio Garrigues Walker, chairman of Garrigues Abogadas y Asesores Tributarios, joined Peter Sutherland, the UN secretary-general’s “special representative on migration and development,” to call on the United States to not only allow unlimited immigration, but to throw more money at Mexico and other impoverished Latin countries. It was, somehow, their “right” to have more U.S. dollars. Sutherland is chairman of British Petroleum and Goldman Sachs International. He is also a long-time Bilderberg leader.

MEDIA BLACKOUT

Bill Emmott, another kept journalist, spoke on “the rise of Asia” at a reception-dinner held at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Emmott, former editor of The Economist, will report nothing.

Sunday morning, Robert Blackwill, former U.S. deputy national security adviser for Iraq, led a panel discussion on “engaging Iran and building peace in the Persian Gulf Region.” For the first time, there was dissent. Blackwill tried to rationalize the invasion of Iraq. Others doubted that Saddam Hussein was connected to the 9-11 terrorist attacks or was a nuclear threat. Blackwill said the military option remains but he hopes diplomatic efforts succeed.

Other participants were Ray Takeyh of the Council on Foreign Relations, which functions as the propaganda ministry for TC and Bilderberg; Volker Perthes, head of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs and Hitoshi Tanaka, former Japanese deputy minister of Foreign Affairs.

MORE, MORE, MORE MONEY

More foreigners demanded more U.S. money at a lunch panel called “European and Asian views on U.S. Foreign and Security Policy.” Participants were Elisabeth Guigou, a member of the French National Assembly and former minister for European affairs and Han Sung-joo, former minister of foreign affairs for South Korea.

An afternoon session addressed “global health” with more calls for American tax dollars. A major voice in this cause came from Sylvia Mathews Burwell, president of Global Development Programs, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill Gates has attended at least one Bilderberg meeting.

EXCUSES FOR IRAQ; PLANS FOR IRAN

John Negroponte, U.S. deputy secretary of state, addressed the evening dinner on “U.S. foreign policy perspectives.” Again, the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were rationalized and an invasion of Iran held out as a possibility.

The Monday morning finale addressed the Global Financial Crisis involving these luminaries: Robert Kimmitt, U.S. deputy secretary of the treasury; Martin Feldstein, former chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers; David Rubenstein, managing director of The Carlyle Group; Naoki Tanaka, president of the Center for International Public Policy Studies and Sir Andrew Crockett, president of JP Morgan Chase International.

Among them, there was much talk of the U.S. government’s “duty” to “intervene” on behalf of “financial institutions under stress.” Little or nothing was said of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who are losing their homes because financial institutions lured them into buying houses they could not afford.

Throughout the weekend, no American voices were heard objecting to the demands on their country. Instead, there were smiles, nods and applause.

AFP editor James P. Tucker Jr. is a veteran journalist who spent many years as a member of the “elite” media in Washington. Since 1975 he has won widespread recognition, here and abroad, for his pursuit of on-the-scene stories reporting the intrigues of global power blocs such as the Bilderberg Group. Tucker is the author of Jim Tucker’s Bilderberg Diary. Loaded with photos—many never published before—the book recounts Tucker’s experiences over the last quarter century at Bilderberg meetings. $25 from AFP. No charge for S&H in U.S.

Bush Reaffirms North American Union Agenda At Leaders’ Summit

Leave a comment

Opposition to ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ intensifies

President Bush yesterday reaffirmed a commitment to progress the much maligned Security and Prosperity Partnership agenda, amid intensified opposition from commentators and critics concerned that the plan constitutes an undermining of national sovereignty.

 

 

At a private party to open the fourth North American Leaders’ Summit in New Orleans, Bush referred to recently encountered “setbacks” and told bureaucrats and business leaders “the meeting gives three friends the chance to come together to discuss our commitment to security and prosperity, to reconfirm the need for the three of us to work in harmony together for the good of our peoples. It’s a chance to talk about how we can best protect our people and extend prosperity.”

 

 

Bush told leaders from Canada and Mexico “Tomorrow, we will be meeting with the business leaders of the North American Competitiveness Council to listen to their specific recommendations… The United States has an opportunity to continue the trading agenda.”

 

 

The North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) is an advisory Council Comprised of 30 senior private sector representatives of North American corporations that were selected by the American, Canadian and Mexican governments at the June 2006 trilateral meeting in Cancun, Mexico.

 

 

Recently uncovered documents detailed how these corporate representatives have been urged to “humanize” North American integration, promote NAFTA success stories to employees and unions and evolve the harmonization agenda “without fueling protectionism”.

 

 

The documentation consists of internal memos from Canada’s Foreign Affairs and Internal Trade ministry, which were obtained by the World Net Daily reporter Jerome Corsi under an Access to Information Act request.

Business leaders have been beseeched by bureaucratic working groups to launch public relations campaigns in order to counter critics of the secretive Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) and to report back to senior government officials with advice on an ongoing basis.

 

 

The memo highlighted how those advancing the North American integration agenda are concerned about the exposure and subsequent public backlash they have encountered recently.

Meanwhile one prominent critic of the SPP agenda, Congressman Ron Paul has vowed to intensify opposition towards the alliance and the intrinsically linked Trans-Texas Corridor and proposed NAFTA Super Highway.

 

 

As we all know, there have been significant moves recently to expand the Security and Prosperity Partnership initiated by President Bush and his Mexican and Canadian counterparts in 2005. One such plan is to construct a so-called NAFTA Superhighway running from Mexico, through Texas, and up eventually into Canada, Paul said yesterday.

 

   

 

I have opposed this project from the beginning, signing on as a co-sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 40 expressing Congressional disapproval of the NAFTA Superhighway and any moves toward a North American Union.¡±


More recently, I introduced an even stronger piece of legislation, H.R.5191, which would prohibit the use of federal funds to carry out this highway project. The federal government has no business being partner to this outrageous plan, according to which countless landowners would have their private property confiscated under eminent domain,¡± Paul said.

 

 

This prohibition of funds, if passed, would go a long way toward derailing this ill-conceived project and would send a clear message that further attempts to undermine U.S. sovereignty would not be unchallenged in Congress. It is long past time the United States House and Senate start taking our constitutional oversight roles seriously.¡± The Congressman concluded.

 

 

The initial Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement was signed by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005. It established working groups, under the North American Free Trade Agreement office.

 

 

Jerome Corsi brought attention to the SPP two years ago when he obtained SPP documents, under the freedom of information act, showing that a wide range of US administrative law is being re-written in stealth under a program to “integrate” and “harmonize” with administrative law in Mexico and Canada, just as has become commonplace within the EU.

 

 

The documents contained references to upwards of 13 working groups within an entire organized infrastructure that has drawn from officials within most areas of administrative government including U.S. departments of State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services, and the office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

(This is relevant for Canada because of the SPP and our connectedness now to the USA Homeland Security apparatus which puts Canadians into the same boat as depicted in this video for the people of the USA. The difference is that there is no one in Canada picking up on these tidbits in Canada to connect the dots as is being done in the USA. Therefore we have to go to the USA scene to get a handle on what is facing us here as well. Connie Fogal, CAP)

 

Who ever did this did a great job of editing this stuff together (all culled from the MSM) making his/her point and doing in a very short time In this video you will hear mention of – Clergy Response Teams:

 

 

 

For those of you who do not know – the US government has enlisted the aid of pastors all around the United States to “assist” in quelling communities (when the time comes) and providing information to the authorities about who may or may not be a trouble maker or not “going along” with martial law.

 

 

 

An example of the conditioning they are pushing – comes @ the 5:02 mark of the clip; it’s of a “pastor”  (in a promotional video)…”MY FRIENDS you are FREE to respect and appreciate the authority that God gives to you…honor the King”…from the video – I’m Free: To Submit To Authority.

National Survey Reveals Strong Opposition To North American Union

Warrenton, VA 20186

National Survey Reveals Strong Opposition To North American Union

While President Bush and his counterparts in Mexico and Canada continue to deny that the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) is the beginning of a North American Union, Americans around the nation are expressing their growing opposition to the scheme.

The American Policy Center, (APC) a grassroots activist organization located in suburban Washington, DC has just concluded a survey of one million American households. The survey, titled Do Americans Support a North American Union asked a series of questions concerning the SPP and the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC). The survey package also included a four-page report prepared by APC entitled NAU Fact Sheet”, providing details about the SPP, the TTC and how these programs are being implemented quietly, behind closed door meetings like the one just completed in New Orleans.

It is important to note that APC did not select households that might represent specific ideological positions. The chosen households represented neither conservative nor liberal positions. Instead the recipients were a wide verity of Americans who live in the direct path of the proposed Trans Texas/NAFTA Corridor, from Texas to Minnesota.

The questions on the survey were:

1. Have you heard of the Security and Prosperity Partnership?

58% of those responding said they had NOT heard of the SPP.

2. Do you think private corporations should have the power to enforce trade policy that may adversely affect our national sovereignty and independence?

This question relates directly to the establishment of Public/Private Partnerships between private corporations and government which grant no-compete clauses and Comprehensive Development Agreements (CDA) which provide guarantees by government to the corporations on investment returns. As such, projects like the TTC are not free enterprise but rather government-sanctioned monopolies. As APC explained this process in the survey, fully 95% of the recipients OPPOSED such policy.

3. Chapter 11 of the NAFTA Agreement states that, disputes over NAFTA-related issues will be heard in NAFTA courts superseding U.S. local, state and federal courts, including the Supreme Court. Question three asked,

Do you think this would be a threat to U.S. Sovereignty?

91% responded YES.

4. The SPP calls for expanding the U.S. security perimeter to include the borders of Canada and Mexico. Question 4 asked,

Do you think it would strengthen U.S. Security to expand our borders to the outer borders of Canada and Mexico?

87% of responders answered NO.

5. Do you think it will strengthen U.S. Border security to allow trucks from Mexico and Canada to travel, free of inspection, up a corridor which has been built and controlled by foreign corporations into the heartland of the United States?

Texas Department of Transportation has already signed a 50 year agreement with a Spanish company named Cintra to build the TTC. In September of 2007 the Bush Administration started a pilot project to allow Mexican trucks to cross the U.S. border without inspections and are free to travel inside the United States. Meanwhile, the Senate passed the 2008 omnibus spending bill that was clearly written and designed to put the breaks on the current pilot program, according to sponsor Senator Bryon Dorgan. Yet, the Bush Administration, under the leadership of Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, continues the program, now in violation of federal law.

95% of responders to the APC survey OPPOSED the Mexican truck project.

6. Would you support efforts to replace the U.S. dollar with a common North American currency some call the “Amero?” Though denied by the Bush Administration, there has been much discussion in economic and academic circles about the creation of a North American currency much like the Euro. In October, 2007, during an appearance on the Larry King Show on CNN, former Mexican President Vicente Fox answered in the affirmative when King asked him about the creation of a united currency. In the May/June issue of the Council on Foreign Relations magazine Foreign Affairs, in an article entitled “The End of National Currency” economist Benn Steil said the dollar is a temporary currency.

92% of survey responders said NO, they would not support such a common North American currency.

7. Do you believe there should be public hearings and debate on this policy before it is allowed to move forward?

To date, there has been no congressional legislation, no congressional hearings and no congressional oversight concerning the establishment or operation of the SPP. No federal money has been officially allocated by Congress. No official authority has been provided for the creation of the SPP. Obviously, Americans feel it is wrong to make such significant changes in our national policy without open debate as 95% of survey respondents said YES, there should be debate and discussion.

8. Should the Bush Administration be allowed to move forward with its plans to crate a North American Community without Congressional approval? Again, the American people have shown they understand that it is Congress which decides such policy as they responded with a resounding 97% NO to this question.

9. Do you believe the United States should be harmonized or merged into a union with Mexico and Canada? The words most often used by the Administration concerning the SPP are, harmonize and integrate. The United States is a representative Republic; Mexico is a socialist government; and Canada is part of the British Crown. There are no grounds for harmonization unless drastic changes are made to the US judicial and financial system. 88% of survey responders said NO to harmonization with Mexico and Canada.

10. Finally, responders were asked to provide their own comments and thoughts on the SPP. The word most often used was Treason. Another said, I want no part of the social health care of Canada and I do not want to incorporate Mexico’s turmoil and poverty into our United States.  Many others said, I want secure borders, not easy traffic between the US, Canada and Mexico. Said another, Bush’s actions formulate a horrifying destruction of our proud nation. Stronger language was used by many more responders. Clearly Americans, once they learn about the SPP are strongly opposed.

However, once again this week (April 21-22) in yet another closed door SPP meeting in New Orleans, President Bush and his fellow heads of state from Mexico and Canada continue to deny the SPP is anything more than a dialogue among the three nations.

Yet, said Tom DeWeese, president of the American Policy Center, the Texas Department of Transportation signs an agreement with the Spanish company Cintra, containing no-compete clauses and guaranteed returns; as the Kansas City council loans $2.5 million to build the inland truck port called KC Smart Port; as the twenty SPP working groups continue to write policy; as the Mexican trucks roll over our borders; as high level meetings go on the Bush Administration dares to deny that ANYTHING is happening. Why? The responses to APC’s survey show why. When Americans understand the truth, they say NO in resounding numbers. Concluded DeWeese, clearly the American people are overwhelmingly opposed to the harmonization of North America. We just want our country — strong, independent and secure.

“We talked about trade. Mexico, Canada and the United States made a bold decision in the early 1990s. Our countries decided to reduce our trade barriers through the North American Free Trade Agreement. That was a visionary move by previous leaders, a move that has benefitted all three of our countries — a lot. [Not the USA!] Trade has tripled. [ IN WHICH Direction!?]

 Our economies have grown by more than 50 percent. “ (WHERE?? NOT in the U.S.A.!)

 

“Now is not the time to renegotiate NAFTA or walk away from NAFTA. Now is the time to make it work better for all our people, and now is the time to reduce trade barriers worldwide.”

NAFTA has offered our consumers a greater variety of better and less expensive goods and services, [Where?]

Media Silence on Events in Canada

Leave a comment

One of the major reasons I began this website is the lack of reporting of substance by what is supposed to be our national and even local news.  For three years I have published my own email gazette trying to expose issues that never see the light of day no matter how much cable or Dish TV you purchase.  What I find appalling is the substitution of celebrity and non-news, rather than actual informative journalism.

A case in point is news from Canada.  Unkown to a majority of Americans, Canadians are waging their own battle against the New World Order, the Security & Prosperity Partnership, the NAFTA highway, the North American Union and the outsourcing of vital contracts related to infrastructure and data mining.

In protest over the outsourcing of census taking to Lockheed/Martin, Canadians by the hundreds of thousands have refused to comply and submit information to L&M.  About 63 are being agressively pusued and prosecuted for refusing to provide L&M with information, saying that this particular company is part of the American War Machine and citing the fact that the census was more than adequately handled by the government prior to this.

We will be posting regular updates to this situation.  In the meantime……

If you are one of those who are being prosecuted by the government in connection to refusing to participate in the census in Canada, please either send an email to:

Canadians Fighting Lockheed/Martin & Loss of Confidence in Government: PART 2

Leave a comment

HALIFAX MONTHLY MEETING
of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

comprising Halifax Friends Meeting, Antigonish Worship Group, Dartmouth Worship Group and South Shore Worship Group

Lucienne Robillard

Minister of Industry

House of Commons

Ottawa ON K1A 0A6

February 15, 2004

Dear Lucienne Robillard,

The Halifax Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) is very concerned about the Canadian government’s decision to award a $20.5 million dollar contract to a unit of the U.S. weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT).

The $20.5 million dollars is the amount to be spent to contract out work of Statistics Canada on the 2006 National Census. Lockheed Martin Canada Inc.

is to lead a consortium that includes IBM Canada, Transcontinental Printing Inc. Canada and ADECCO Employment Services Ltd. Canada.

In February 2003, Lockheed Martin Canada Inc. was also awarded a multi-year contract by the Canadian Department of National Defence to provide a health care information system on Canadian Forces personnel. That contract is worth approximately $17 million and covers only the first 14 months of the project. The contract has the potential to exceed an estimated value of $56 million, however, if all four phases are delivered over the anticipated 10-year period.

These decisions were made while Alan Rock was serving on Jean Chrétien’s Cabinet as Minister of Industry. We are writing to you, the new Minister of Industry, to make you aware of our continuing objections.

While Quakers realize that, under the North American Free Trade Agreement

(NAFTA) and World Trade Organization Agreement regulations, non-Canadian firms are eligible to bid on contracts to provide essential public services, we are loathe to see the Canadian public’s tax dollars flow to a military contractor that benefits richly from the development (and deployment) of weapons of mass destruction.

We are also loathe to assist a principal member of the U.S.

military-industrial complex to further develop its capacity to collect, store, analyze, and retrieve sensitive information on citizens of any country.

We have read that a spokesperson for former Public Works Minister Ralph Goodale has stated that under the obligations of the NAFTA, Canada cannot alter contracts with Lockheed Martin and if we were to do so we could be sued for millions of dollars. (Toronto Star, October 15, 2003)

We ask you, in your capacity as Industry Minister and in conjunction with other members of Cabinet, to find a way forward that would best extricate our country from these contracts.

While many would welcome an outcome in which Statistics Canada would be allotted the funding and capacity to fully carry out an activity as important as the Canadian census, it is of particular importance to Quakers

– because of our Peace Testimony* – that contracts not be let to a subsidiary of a trans-national corporation that sold almost $27 billion dollars worth of weapons in 2002.

We therefore ask:

1. that your government cancel all its contracts with Lockheed Martin and 2.

that you pledge not to grant millions more to Lockheed Martin in the future.

We would appreciate hearing from you soon in regards to this important matter.

End Run Around REAL ID

Leave a comment

 

                                             URGENT ACTION ALERT

                                                       STOP H.R. 5405

 

 I regretfully send you this email to inform you of yet another plot to enslave the American people in an unconstitutional framework of databases under the guise of “security”.

 

 

Recently Congressman Mark Kirk from Illinois 10th District introduced a bill to create a “Secure Social Security Card”. This new card is clearly a run around to the state’s opposition to Real ID andwe must do all in our power to prevent it from becoming law.

 

 

FIRST: Watch this short video recorded at the town hall meeting where Congressman Kirk talks about the “Secure Social Security Card”:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrsJVZe41Dg

 

 

SECOND: Review and comment on the in depth article about it here:

 

http://www.restoretherepublic.com/content/view/627/71/

 

 

THIRD: Contact your congressman and instruct them to vote against HR 5405:

 

https://forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.shtml

 

 

FORTH: Post this email on your blog, post it in forums, forward it to every member in your address book.

 

 

FIFTH: Track the status of HR 5405 at

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-5405

 

 

Unlike Real ID where the States can rise up and fight it independently, the “Secure Social Security Card” must be fought at the federal level by contacting our members of congress.

 

 

This is another attempt at connecting the American people into the international databases of the New World Order. They are failing with Real ID and are attempting to use the SS card as the bridge. They will only succeed if we let them and you needto take the steps help us defeat this plan before it takes root.

REAL ID vs. YOU!

2 Comments

One of the most invasive and intrusive Acts passed by congress was the attachment of the REAL ID act to a non-related spending bill.  REAL ID, which could not pass as a stand alone bill because of its intent to tag us all like cattle, was also passed in violation of the enacting charter of Homeland Security which expressly prohibits the establishment of any kind of national ID, (even if you call it a domestic passport) by HSD.

REAL ID is promoted as just another weapon to fight terrorism, with US citizens apparently topping the list of suspected terrorists.  For some reason, HSD can longer be sure of who we are unless we submit to RFID tracking either by implanted chip or by RFID enabled ID cards. 

I would suggest that HSD check with the infamous IRS…..they seem to have no difficulty in identifying any one of us and persecuting and prosecuting us……unless of course you are in that elite class of individuals who has become so wealthy that taxes no longer apply to you. 

HSD says that those who do not comply with REAL ID will become “non-citizens” and for all intents and purposes will cease to exist as far as the Federal government is concerned.  Personally, I see this as a boon for those who are being taxed into poverty…..if you don’t recognize us, don’t know who we are, and we are no longer not only NOT citizens but have ceased to exist…….then we can’t possibly be taxed or forced to pay taxes.  How can you reasonably assess taxes against an individual that by your own edict no longer exists?

We could also now assume the status of “illegal alien”…..we could work illegally, pay no taxes, get welfare benefits, have our children educated, get free medical care, housing assistance, fuel assistance, food assistance and a host of other perks not available to most legal citizens of this country and! We could send billions to our families each year to support them with the blessings of the Federal government. 

Declaring ourselves as “illegal aliens”, US laws would not apply to us, enforcement of US laws would be declared inhumane, and any attempts to send us back to our home country would be futile because we are already here.  We’re just invisible!

Sarcasm aside, ask yourself why our own government is adamant about tracking all of us when they are just as adamant that they cannot possibly track illegal entrants into this country? 

REAL ID is the facilitating act that will put all US citizens under the command and control of HSD.  Acceptance of this ID will be acceptance of that command and control and is one of the final stages of implementing a police state. 

REAL ID is enabler of previously enacted legislation that cannot be fully utilized unless American citizens are accordingly tagged and tracked. ( According to military sites, they can no longer identify hostages without RFID tracking chips to make sure they have the “right person”. )

REAL ID is also necessary to implement the coming “cashless” society.  Your wages will be “credited” to your RFID number, and purchases “debited” from the same number and now the government will know exactly how much you had and what you did with every penny of it.  All of your current financial, medical, and personal information will be logged onto your number.

Refuse to comply?  There’s a novel idea!  You no longer have access to the new “system”.  That means you can’t work, you can’t purchase food, you can’t seek medical care…..you’re not in the system.  You can’t enter a federal building (that would be the same buildings your tax dollars helped to build), board a plane, or ride a train!  You won’t be able to access your Social Security (this would be the same SS system who taxed your wages as an investment in this system…..they knew exactly who you were then and had no problems identifying you) or various other programs.

All of this brought to you by Republicans and Democrats alike. 

We do have our champions though.  Governor Schweitzer of Montana who is leading the rebellion against this horrendous act, and other states are following suit: http://www.realnightmare.org/news/105/  Is an updating list of states that have either totally rejected REAL ID or that have introduced resolutions to opt out or to repeal this odious piece of work.

Not to be deterred, Michael Chertof, head of HSD says that HSD will retaliate against states that refuse to comply.  What?   Did that just fly pass our royal houses of congress unnoticed?  The head of a government agency threatened retaliation against the people of the United States for refusing to comply with an unconstitutional act and a breach of the Bill of Rights…….and…….congress isn’t slapping him down? 

According to Chertof, Montana residents will no longer be able to board an airplane to fly out of the state after May 1, 2008.  Yup!  Sounds like America to me!

Georgia also rejected REAL ID and is bracing for a showdown with HSD.  Georgia’s Hartsfield International Airport will likely come to a standstill as Georgia residents who refuse to be chipped and tracked by HSD will not be allowed boarding passes according to Chertof.  Having previously lived in the Atlanta area for more than 20 years, I can say without hesitation that Georgians’ will not take this lightly. 

Because resistance to REAL ID is so widespread, it was necessary for our Congressional gods and goddesses to come up with an alternative penalty for non-compliance.  That’s how we got the new updated version of the Anti-Homegrown Terrorism (shut your mouth and sit down) Act, which has no limits on who it can target and persecute. 

What I believe this is really about is not so much enacting such an illegal law like REAL ID, but instead, provoking civil disobedience and unrest.  They want us to rebel!  Bush needs an excuse to declare martial law and suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights.   He and his cohorts in crime knew full well that Americans’ steeped in the concept of freedom would not sit still for this;  which also explains to me why we entered into the Civil Assistance Plan with Canada which will allow the use of their military against us on our own soil.  Why would this plan have been agreed to at this particular time and with what in mind?  None of this is accidental timing.

As usual our congress on, both sides of the isle have not only complied with the establishment of the coming police state, they have facilitated it.  I have maintained for years that the terrorists we need to fear most are holding court inside the beltway.

Open Letter To George Bush by Marti Oakley

4 Comments

I have a few things I would like to say to you but I know if I write these thoughts down in a letter and mail them to you I will most likely be put on a watch list at the very least and probably will be hounded by my local FBI for daring to speak out.  More than likely, if this open letter to you is printed…….I will end up on a list anyway.  Even knowing that, I am determined to have my say.  What follows is my take on you, your presidency and the damage you have done to our once beautiful country.

To begin:  I personally will consider it an act of treason against the people of the sovereign United States for you to continue to participate in, contribute to, or to in any way engage  in furthering the Security & Prosperity Partnership.  The idea that you have scheduled the next summit meeting for this anti-American agreement, in New Orleans in April, on American soil for the benefit of you and your corporate friends and crooks is more than an insult. It is a direct violation of the Logan Act and is nothing less than treason.

By the way:  nothing in our Constitution gives you the right to enter into agreements of any kind without calling it what it is…a treaty.  You don’t call it a treaty because that would mean congress would have oversight…..and you sure don’t want that!

The failure of any of your three Attorney’s General to secure our border with Mexico against this illegal colonization and immigration, is a direct result of your intentions to merge the US, Canada and Mexico into one big continental country. 

All three of your nefarious AG’s have failed to perform their duties as prescribed in the US Code mandating that it is their DUTY to secure our borders against any unlawful invasion.  They each failed to perform the duties of their office, and you have supported and encouraged this failure. 

I find it more than strange that we are now going to have to suffer the indignity of foreign military on our soil, against us…… and we can now send our military into other countries to attack their populations, but we can’t use our own military to secure that border.   

But this isn’t about foreign terrorists or mass illegal immigration is it?  This is about dismantling the Republic.  This is about coaxing and conning people into believing an imaginary enemy is at their door and that unless they give up everything this country was founded on, the boogey man will get them!  This is all about transforming a once great nation of free people into one of oppression and government control for the benefit of the select few.  This is about terrorizing the American public into compliance. It is the American people that you fear most of all.

Ordinary citizens are now “domestic combatants”, “domestic terrorists”.  Why?  Because they object to your un-American policies.  We have watch lists, no fly lists, specially designated nationals lists…black lists of all kinds.  And the names of American citizens who have never committed any crime are being added to these lists daily.  But for some reason we can’t find Osama.  We can’t locate and deport illegals back to their homes.  We can’t enforce immigration laws.  But we can sure run down American citizens and data mine every possible piece of information on them. 

Under the threat of another attack (you seem to be the only one threatening) our phone calls are listened to, our email is read, our web searches tracked, our snail mail opened and read, our personal business is tracked, our medical information is logged, our homes can be searched without warrant or warning, our assets frozen, and now HSD wants to enact REAL ID which is nothing more than a national ID which they are forbidden to ever establish according to their charter.  You want us chipped, bio-scanned, facially imprinted, fingerprinted, and you want us to go to a cashless system so that only those with the ID can conduct any transaction……and only if you say its ok. 

The stage is set isn’t it?  The Executive Orders granting yourself expanded and unconstitutional powers, the signing statements putting yourself above the law, the presidential directives laying the groundwork for martial law and suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights; the FEMA camps for dissidents… these things are all in place and just waiting for you to declare a national emergency……and to declare yourself as perpetual dictator. 

In all of this, the greatest disappointment has been the refusal of congress on either side of the isle to act to defend the people of the United States from you.  I personally believe that you, Cheney, Rice, and many others in this illegitimate administration pose a greater threat to the safety of this nation than any foreign terrorist ever could. 

It is you and your cronies who have done the damage.  It is you who have started wars of aggression, who lies pathologically, who seems intent on destroying our nation.  It is you who subverts our laws, disregards our Constitution and who is intent on taking away our liberties.  No foreign terrorist could have done this. 

It is you and the terrorists in your administration who pose the greatest threat.  It is you we need to fear.  And we need to treat you as we would any other terrorist:

You should be held without communication at a secret prison and tortured until you said whatever we wanted you to say whether it was true or not.  We need to seize all your assets and incarcerate your wife and children.  And don’t think you would have any rights either or that you will get a fair trial.  After all, we’re not going to tell you what you’re charged with or allow you to see any evidence that we might have against you and you will not be allowed to mount a defense of any kind. 

In the end, if we haven’t water boarded, electrocuted, or beaten you to death, or permanently screwed up your mental faculties with the use of psychotropic drugs that we may use to experiment on you, we may let you go.  But then again….maybe not.   The dogs may be hungry.  And besides, the usual term of incarceration for terrorism is life without parole if you don’t die “accidentally” while in prison.  I have to wonder if those laws and provisions sound quite so good to you now?

I would like to think that the election in November will bring a much needed reversal of the illegitimate laws and corruption that have defined your administration.  But, I know this won’t happen.  Regardless of who supposedly wins that election, that person will simply continue the destruction you have begun.  And I also know that no one will be allowed to take that office without first swearing that they will continue what you have started.  (We don’t have hacker enabled electronic voting machines for nothing.  I guess you would know more about those than I would.)

Knowing that you are a megalomaniac and totally without conscience, I am sure you think that history will report you as some great leader with a vision.  I think history, if it isn’t censored to a great extent, will report you as the worst president ever in our history.  If not the worst, then assuredly the most despised.  The only person I can think of which will be held in even less regard would be Cheney. 

Marti Oakley

These are just some of my observations.  I have many more and would gladly share them with you……but I know your aversion to having to actually deal with or communicate with the non-elite.  That, and if you cared what I or anyone else out here thought, none of this would be happening anyway.

   

Nothing less than treason

Leave a comment

In what is nothing less than a step towards martial law and the North American Union, U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renaurt signed an agreement with Canadian Air Force Lt-Gen. Marc Dumais  which is nothing less than a treaty, called the Civil Assistance PlanThis so-called agreement (treaty) signals the intended use of the military of Canada on U.S. soil, against U.S. Citizens. 

The flowery language in the public announcement from United States Northern Command appears to imply that without the assistance of Canadian troops, our military might not be able to efficiently respond in the event of a national emergency.  Supposedly, if we have a flood, hurricane, forest fire, earthquake or another terrorist attack additional forces that are more flexible and adaptive are needed and these forces are, for some reason, not to be found within the 1.5 million in our own military.

Our military isn’t supposed to respond in the first place, much less with the assistance of foreign soldiers.  We have made similar agreements (treaty’s) with other nations including Germany and Mexico. 

It isn’t a national disaster or attack from terrorists that the two governments are preparing for.  It is the anticipated civil revolts resulting from the intent to merge the U.S, Canada and Mexico; and the intentional creation of a food shortage over this year along with the forced collapse of our economies that has them worried.  What if the peasants revolt?

What concerns me most in this treasonous pact are those terms, flexible and adaptive.  I can’t imagine any military more flexible and adaptive than our own….so what could this really mean?

In the context of the North American Union, it means soldiers who wouldn’t be firing on family and friends…on their countrymen.  The subconscious sense of national identity would allow Canadian soldiers to view us as an enemy.  That sense would not likely include natural inhibitions our own military might have about attacking U.S. citizens under a declaration of martial law.  The reverse would be likely for the U.S. military on Canadian soil.

We have a little known law called “The Logan Act”.  This act makes it a felony for any person to enter into agreements or treaty’s, or even conversations with foreign nations that in any way work to undermine the United States as a nation.  It is only with permission from those with the authority to do so, that any discussions or meetings can occur….and these still may not include anything that undermines the laws or sovereignty of the U.S..

I would like to know who gave Gen. Renaurt the permission to enter into this agreement with foreign nations?  Whomever, that person was, is guilty of a felony as is the General.

Our constitution says that treaty’s are the law of the land.  These must be adhered to.  But, treaty’s also must abide by the sovereign laws of the U.S.  They also must pass both houses of congress and be approved before being adopted.  Which is exactly why “treaty” is never used in these illegal pacts and the word “agreement” is substituted.  This bypasses congress altogether and allows unhindered assaults on our sovereignty. 

 These “agreements” are illegal and unconstitutional regardless of who initiated them.  There are no provisions in our Constitution for such agreements.  This would include the North American Free Trade Agreement.   The Central America Free Trade Agreement.  The Free Trade Area of the America’s Agreement, and a host of other agreements that are destroying our economy and forfeiting our sovereignty. 

This brings me back to a question that seems to run through my mind daily.  Where the hell is our congress?  Whether Democrat or Republican not one of them has made any effort to end this corruption of our laws and of our Constitution.  And, not one of these bloated politicians has spoken one word about this treasonous pact.  Dead silence.

Oh! Except for Ron Paul, he of course, has.  Well…. there’s one in a row.

 

Don’t think they are worried about this either.  If we protest too much they can always vote themselves retro-active immunity from any prosecution…..and then call on Canada’s military to silence us.

Defending Our HOMELANDS..(Please note this is plural)

United States Northern Command 

Defending Our HOMELANDS

February 14, 2008

SAN ANTONIO, Texas

U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, and Canadian Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, have signed a Civil Assistance Plan that allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.

“This document is a unique, bilateral military plan to align our respective national military plans to respond quickly to the other nation’s requests for military support of civil authorities,” Renuart said. “Unity of effort during bilateral support for civil support operations such as floods, forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and effects of a terrorist attack, in order to save lives, prevent human suffering and mitigate damage to property, is of the highest importance, and we need to be able to have forces that are flexible and adaptive to support rapid decision-making in a collaborative environment.”

“The signing of this plan is an important symbol of the already strong working relationship between Canada Command and U.S. Northern Command,” Dumais said.

 “Our commands were created by our respective governments to respond to the defense and security challenges of the twenty-first century, and we both realize that these and other challenges are best met through cooperation between friends.”

The plan recognizes the role of each nation’s lead federal agency for emergency preparedness, which in the United States is the Department of Homeland Security and in Canada is Public Safety Canada. The plan facilitates the military-to-military support of civil authorities once government authorities have agreed on an appropriate response.

U.S. Northern Command was established on Oct. 1, 2002, to anticipate and conduct homeland defense and civil support operations within the assigned area of responsibility to defend, protect, and secure the United States and its interests.

Similarly, Canada Command was established on Feb. 1, 2006, to focus on domestic operations and to offer a single point of contact for all domestic and continental defense and security partners.The two domestic commands established strong bilateral ties well before the signing of the Civil Assistance Plan. The two commanders and their staffs meet regularly, collaborate on contingency planning and participate in related annual exercises

FAQ: How will Real ID affect you?

Editor’s note: A May deadline looms as just one flash point in a political showdown between Homeland Security and states that oppose Real ID demands. This is the last in a four-part series examining the confrontation. Today’s installment is a set of frequently asked questions, or FAQ, that we hope explains how the Real ID law affects you.

The Real ID law is touted by Homeland Security officials as an anticrime and antiterror measure, but is steadfastly opposed by some state governments on privacy and sovereignty grounds. Computer scientists also have raised concerns about how its creation of a national interlinked database would work in practice. Keep reading for more on Real ID.

Q: When does the Real ID Act take effect?

On May 11, a little more than three months from now. But states like California that have agreed to comply and ones like Pennsylvania that have requested a deadline extension are not affected–driver’s licenses from those states will continue to work for entering federal buildings and flying commercially.

Some states seem to have requested an extension as a tactical maneuver with little intention of ever complying. Washington and Idaho may fall into this category. A spokesman for Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter told us: “We’ve asked for an extension, but we still have serious concerns and reservations about it and its future here is to be determined.”

Q: Who’s going to have trouble flying or entering federal buildings starting May 11?

Residents of the five states–Maine, South Carolina, Montana, Oklahoma, and New Hampshire–that have firmly rejected Real ID. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have not decided yet, meaning they could fall into this category too.

Q: So if I live in Maine, South Carolina, Montana, Oklahoma, or New Hampshire, and I want to fly out of any U.S. airport starting May 11, what happens?

The Bush administration has not answered that question. The Transportation Security Administration referred our questions to the Department of Homeland Security. A Homeland Security spokesman told us: “That’s an operational, ongoing issue at this point in time. We’ll need to be a bit closer in.”

One likely situation is that starting May 11, security checkpoints at all U.S. airports will have a Real ID and a non-Real ID line. Non-Real ID would be in the slow line, which Homeland Security predicts will involve “delays” and “enhanced security screening.” (One official with the Portland International Airport even joked about a mandatory “full body cavity search.”)

Q: Can I use a U.S. passport instead to get in the fast line?

Yes. If you don’t have one, you’d better apply soon. The State Department estimates four to six weeks for processing.

Q: Will I be able to fly after May 11?

Starting May 11, unless your home state agrees to comply with the federal Real ID Act or unless it asks for an extension, you should expect problems going through security at airports. Click a state below to see what that state has told us about whether or not its ID cards will meet Real ID requirements.

What that state has told us about whether or not it’s going along with the federal Real ID Act. http://www.news.com/How-will-Real-ID-affect-you/2009-1028_3-6229517.html?tag=st.nl
