Stop S.510, the fake food safety bill, at your state line

18 Comments

_____________________________________________

S..510 calls for the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to contact the governors of each state to determine which agencies within the state will contract on behalf of the state to administer the USDA/FDA federal plans for seizing control of food production and supply, handing it over to multi-national corporations and setting into motion the eradication of family and independent farms and ranches.  These new “business plans” (which is what S.510 is, a business plan), require contracting with state agencies accompanied of course, by bags of USDA bribery money called “cooperative funding”. 

_______________________________________________

The federal government, including Senator Reid, who is yet again pushing for a vote on S.510, the fake food safety bill, know they cannot pass any enforceable law on the federal level dealing with agriculture; it is not in the enumerated powers, and will exist only as a non-positive code and title.  Because these “laws” are outside the scope of the federal government, they cannot be used to criminalize what was other wise your right to do without their interference.  Non-positive code and title, in this case Title 7 USC, cannot be revised, codified and assigned a public law number as these corporate codes are outside the authority of the federal government.  Should S.510 pass, it is null and void on its face, as if it never existed, but not one of your Senators or Representatives will tell you this.   

In an effort to bypass congress and the president so that none of these illustrious individuals can be held directly accountable for this act of aggression, this selling out of America’s farms and ranches, this selling off of our national security regarding food under the threat of further contamination which these same agencies facilitated by their refusal to act in our defense as they contracted against us, the USDA and FDA have become the most clear and present danger to the US and, congress in both houses is enabling this threat.    

USDA and FDA are sliding onto the Federal Register and attempting to expand their power and authority by claiming a “presumption” of authority which they were never intended to have.  Every attempt is made to change the “rules” on the register and then claim they have this new power because no one objected and rebutted their assertions.  When rebuttals, using law,  are presented on the register which has been done FDA and USDA fall silent and just proceed on as if nothing happened.  Of course, not one word from those Senators or Representatives about this; they were probably out to lunch with corporate donors. 

It is expected, that failure to pass this assault on private agriculture and the intent to export as much of the US food supply as possible, President Obama will incrementally implement the provisions of S.510 using Executive Orders and using the Food Czar’s office to issue edicts and mandates that we, as citizens of the sovereign states will be told, we must comply with.  No hell we don’t have to comply.   More

CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: The Elephant in the room they don’t want you to see! Codex isn’t coming…its already here!

Codex Isn’t Coming, It’s Here!

Why is there so much denial by consumer advocate groups such as the National Health Federation(1) (NHF) about Barry Soetoro implementing the U.S. Codex council via Executive Order(2)? What is it that they don’t want you to see? Just do the research, and you will discover that we have been up to our eyeballs in Codex since 1962 and don’t even know it.

Codex is a subsidiary body of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO). Codex develops international food safety and quality standards, such as standards concerning the safety of food additives. Standards set by Codex traditionally served as a minimum floor for less developed countries. The U.S. has participated in Codex since its formation in 1962 and has shared its technical expertise in efforts to aid less developed countries.

http://www.cspinet.org/reports/codex.htm

We are being lulled into complacency with declarations that Codex isn’t here yet, not to worry, while the elephant in the room is getting bigger all the time. Here is a quote from an article posted on the NHF site:

While the Executive Order is real, it is not imposing Codex rules on the United States. As NHF lobbyist Lee Bechtel correctly points out, “There is no direct policy link between this Council and Codex, or with the way in which the FDA regulates food and food supplements More

Czars And A Gulag America?

_________________________________________

Czars were Russian tyrants. Gulags were Russian slave labor camps. Are gulags coming to America? We already have a growing corps of Czars. 

The oligarchs of the International Monetary/Banking Cartel took a huge step towards the tyranny of their New World Order when they put their man ­ Barack Obama ­ into the White House. 

Obama, who many Americans still consider to be their friend, has had the audacity ­ the cheek, the arrogant insolence ­ to have appointed a growing cadre of Czars, on top of a bloated bureaucracy that is already at least a thousand times too large and too intrusive.

This is “in your face” tyranny. The very word ­ Czar ­ is repugnant to any democracy. The very definition of the word Czar means, “king” or “emperor” or “autocrat” or “tyrant.”  More

Obama considering Executive Order to push Amnesty?

1 Comment

Tell a Friend 

Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation’s 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President asking for answers to questions about a plan that would allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can’t secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION CONSIDERING EXECUTIVE-ORDER AMNESTY FOR MILLIONS BECAUSE CAN’T GET VOTES IN CONGRESS

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE ONLY WAY TO FIGHT THIS

This is a true red-alert danger. Read below for background, but please take action immediately.

TAKE ACTION: Send faxes to your 3 Members of Congress that warn them of the plot and urge them to speak out against it. Friends, U.S. Presidents have proven whether Republican or Democrat that they are capable of doing almost anything they please until they come up for re-election. Only an incredible outburst of outrage from the public can stop the Administration from doing a de facto amnesty all by itself.

Your great success in keeping Congress from voting on a mass amnesty this year has stirred up a new threat.

Police State in Waiting

2 Comments

Gary Rea (c) copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

_______________________________________

Despite what is known about current abuses of the Bill of Rights, the United States is actually a latent police state, waiting to happen. All that is necessary to make it a fully overt police state is a single declaration of a “state of emergency” from the President of the United States – whomever he may be.
Thanks to a plethora of subversive measures taken by past and present Presidents, as well as Congress (made possible by the Rothschild employed authors of the Constitution, itself), the United States is now poised upon the brink of oblivion. Aside from the many U.N. treaties signed by Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush and now Obama, ceding U.S. sovereignty to a rapidly coalescing world government, the most dangerous and insidious of these measures has been a long list of Executive Orders signed by a succession of Presidents:

The Death of the Republic Revisited – Part III

Leave a comment

Gary Rea (c)copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

____________________________________

In The Death of the Republic Revisited, I covered the constitutional loopholes that gave Congress the power to decide the powers of the Supreme Court and the federal court system, and how this lead to the most abusive – and untouchable – of the three branches of our government. In The Death of the Republic Revisited – Part II, I covered the constitutional loopholes that have allowed Congress several means of escaping any real checks by the Judicial Branch or the Executive Branch. Now, I turn my attention to the constitutional loopholes that have allowed the Executive Branch to be become dictatorial.

Aiding the Congress’ ability to make the Judiciary untouchable is the President’s sole power to appoint Supreme Court justices for life. The only check on this ability lies with the Senate, which has the right of review of any appointees. As we’ve seen in recent years, however, collusion between the Senate and the President render this so-called “check” a joke. Again, as I said in my previous articles, the federal government’s three branches work in concert as a single symbiotic entity. In other words, there are no real “checks and balances” at all. If the President and the Senate have a vested interest in a particular appointee to the court, there is no means for the House of Representatives, the states, or the people to stop the appointment and, once made, there is no power in any of the branches – not even the Executive – to remove a justice except by impeachment for criminal offenses. This has rarely happened in the 223 years since the Constitution created the three branches.

As mentioned in Part II, the Congress is empowered to use treaties to make U.S. citizens subject to foreign laws. The President, also, possesses this power, in concert with Congress, and one of the worst recent offenders was President Bill Clinton, who used his treaty-signing powers frequently to cede U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations, the World Bank, the IMF and the World Court. This has been continued by Presidents Bush and Obama.

But, the main loophole in the Constitution – which was deliberately placed there by the Federalists, many of whom desired to make the President a monarch – that gives the President unchecked dictatorial powers is his sole ability to create Executive Orders and “signing statements.”

The power of the President to make Executive Orders is exclusively limited to the Executive Branch, as the term implies. Neither the Judiciary nor the Legislative branches are empowered to rescind or repeal an Executive Order. Effectively, the President may create new law in this manner, in direct violation of the Legislative Branch’s supposed monopoly on law-creation. Once signed by the President, an Executive Order has the full force of law without any approval by Congress.

Furthermore, the President may use his Executive Order power to not only create new law, but to effectively negate existing laws that have been created by Congress. In fact – and this is the most dangerous aspect of Executive Orders – the President may override the Constitution, itself, the very document that gives him these powers, this is all by the Federalists’ design!

The power of the Executive Order can be used for good or ill, depending upon the particular motives and whims of a sitting President. An example of the “good” would be President John F. Kennedy’s Executive Order 11110, which would have effectively abolished the Federal Reserve, thus ending the international banking cartel’s stranglehold upon our government.

The trouble has been that very few Executive Orders have been of the “good” variety and most – especially those created by recent Presidents – have been thoroughly tyrannical. A few cases in point are:

Executive Order 12148: Created FEMA

Executive Order 10990: Allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

Executive Order 10995: Allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

Executive Order 10997: Allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

Executive Order 10998: Allows the government to take over all food resources and farms

Executive Order 11000: Allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision

Executive Order 11011: Allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions

Executive Order 11002: Designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons

Executive Order 11003: Allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft

Executive Order 11004: Allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

Executive Order 11005: Allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities

Executive Order 11051: Specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

Executive Order 11310: Grants authority to the Department of Justice and enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

Executive Order 11049: Assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period. allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanism of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in US financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation.

This is only a partial listing of some of the Executive Orders that directly affect the freedoms and liberties of all citizens and which, effectively, make the President a dictator.

Tri-Partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation Reveals “Alphabet Connection”

1 Comment

After much discussion and an in-depth tri-partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation lasting 72 hours, the White House today released it’s findings on the 8 Terrorist attacks in the last 6 months of the year:

1.The last Administration is responsible for not doing enough or doing too much depending on what was done.
2.Calling the Terrorists, well Terrorists, has hurt their itty bitty little feelings and made them “madder than a wet hen”.
3.All of the individuals involved have used, gasp, letters in their names. Some have even had the audacity to use multiple vowels!
4.Many have used garments to conceal and/or disguise the tools being used to perpetuate said “Domestic Badness”.

In order to discourage the “Really Bad Badness”, the following Executive Order has been put forth:

“By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by myself, the Chicago Political Machine and the Hope and Change Committee, including whichever statute and non-verified International Treaty that We call upon as an Independent Ruling Body, it is hereby ordered that:

1.All Administration Officials whom have served from  August 4th, 1961 forward and had the audacity to pass laws allowing for anything other than what I have deemed acceptable (except for the Officials currently serving in the House or Senate which support my Agenda), be removed from office.

2.No longer will we refer to the “T” word. Now we shall use “Bad Guys” (BG) in referring to the individuals who do “Bad Stuff” (BS).

3.All Global Citizens who use letters in their name, especially if multiple vowels are used, shall be placed upon the “Super-Dee-Duper Watch List” (SDDWL). (With the following exceptions of whom will be placed on the “Not Super-Dee-Super Watch List” (NSDDWL): CIA, FBI, POTUS, ACLU, ACORN, SIEU, etc.)

4.No individual, no matter what their status, who has been placed upon the SDDWL will be allowed to wear garments that are concealing in any manner.

The above decrees are not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such Global Citizens may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action. Those shall be “null and void” due to the power invested in me and because We said so.

Citizen Signing Statements: If they’re legal for W., we should have the same right.

Leave a comment

 

 

On more than 750 occasions King George has attached what are called signing statements to new or previously passed legislation.  These statements express his direct orders to cabinet, department and agency heads directing them and their subordinates to ignore any or all of the provisions of the law.  In effect, he renders anything that limits his power to rule as a dictator as null and void.

 

Our congress, apparently following Bush’s lead, has made clear that they do not and will not represent the people of the United States and are instead pandering to lobbyists and corporate interests in the head long rush to dissolve our nation. In the interest of preserving themselves, congress has failed to stop the wars of aggression, failed to repeal any of the rights robbing legislation, failed to halt earmarking, failed to repeal the odious Patriot acts, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, the Military Commissions Act or the REAL ID Act, among many other un-American and unconstitutional laws. 

 

Congress has however passed any law that promotes corporatism, militarism, illegal spying on US citizens, loss of civil liberties, invasion of privacy, establishment of a police state and many other invasive “laws” contrary to our Constitution.  Yet this same congress which is comprised of many individuals from previous congresses, has refused to impeach Bush and/or Cheney although mountains of evidence exists that proves they are guilty of many crimes; continues to try and push amnesty down our throats; has decided that we should all be tagged and tracked; refuses to end the war; bails out predatory lenders; sells off our infrastructure and allows the contamination of our food supply with GMO adulterated foods, and is now attempting to make our water supply available to corporate interests. 

 

On top of all of this, there is no attempt, not even a pretended attempt, to halt the Security & Prosperity Partnership or the creation of the North American Union.  In fact, if you even bring either of these things up to any one of them……….they look like a deer caught in headlights…..and you will most likely be escorted from the room at the very least.

 

What we have is a president who has decided that he alone decides what is law or what isn’t and a congress that has ceded so much of its authority to the executive branch that there is no reason for the institution to continue to exist and even less reason for US citizens to continue having to fund their own destruction and to pay the salaries of these parasites on the public. 

 

The majority of all the laws passed in the last seven years alone, have no legal basis and are arbitrary to the Constitution.  The signing statements issued by Bush have no legal standing whatsoever as there is no basis for this kind of self decided power either in our laws or in the Constitution.  Bush cannot legally use the term “commander in chief” as there has been no declaration of war by the congress, and therefore the War Powers Act does not apply and does not allow him unlimited powers and to rule unilaterally.

So many of us still hold out hope that the new Obama administration will reverse the most egregious of these actions and laws, but it isn’t going to happen.  Obama has made clear that he intends to continue the use of illegal signing statements, presidential directives and executive orders.  We are back to square one.  We have no representation in either house of congress and no president to protect our rights. 

 

At what point will we say “enough!”?  What will it take to make us stand up not only for our country, but for ourselves, our children and grandchildren and demand our government retreat from its fascist position and return to one of constitutionally based government? 

 

The days of our Republic, our democracy, are numbered.  Even the government knows this and in anticipation of that ending is assembling US and Canadian troops to [control] us.  We are in a police state with our own government just moments away from declaring war on us.  We have become the enemy most feared by our own government.

 

George Bush may have only days left in office but the damage this incompetent dolt did to our country or allowed to be done will remain with us for years if we do not stand up and demand our country back. 

 

All that is left to decide is whether we are true patriots or submissive sheep.  If the president can decide all on his own that he can change the law with the stroke of his pen, we as citizens should have the same right.  We can and should write our own laws, sign our names to them and force them onto this government that has decided it no longer needs to honor its oath of office or the Constitution.

 

This is still a democracy…..at least until they physically attack us.

What Barack Obama Will Not Do as President

Leave a comment

                                       by Alan Adaschik

 

America just survived the nightmare of living under the worst possible president anyone could imagine; George W. Bush.  No one can say anything good about his accomplishments while in office and this includes Republicans who are loyal to him.  This is because everything George Bush did was to the detriment of the people of this Nation and to the rest of the world.  As a President, he was a total failure and he deliberately worked to destroy everything that was right about our Nation and its government.  This includes:

 

·     Turning the office of the President into a dictatorship

·     Tightening the New World Orders grip upon our Nation

·     Increasing government secrecy

·     Opening the revolving door between corporations and government agencies

·     Reducing the effectiveness of and politicizing all government agencies

·     Increased the national debt bringing the Nation to the brink of bankruptcy

·     Broke down the wall between the separation between church and state

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of signing statements

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of executive orders

·     Worked to eliminate checks and balances in government

·     Eliminated citizen rights including inalienable ones

·     Introduced torture as a legitimate tool of government

·     Broke treaties and ignored international law

·     Lied to the American people about everything

·     Established an illegal prison system outside our borders

·     Wrongfully invaded a weak foreign nation on a lie

·     Failed to prevent 9/11 and is remiss in fighting the war on terror

·     Mishandled the Katrina disaster

·     Etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum

No, George Bush did nothing good for America and nothing good for the world.  While in office, his actions were undertaken solely for the benefit of our New World Order masters and the corporate executives who hold him firmly in their pockets.  In the final analysis, the ultimate irony of this is that what he wrought is not even beneficial to these Fascists because the destruction of our environment and the collapse of our economic system benefits no one including the demented criminals of the New World Order.  Indeed, America is ready for change but it goes far beyond just being ready because George Bush has driven a dagger into the very heart of what America is supposed to be and if his actions are not reversed, the American experiment in Republican Democracy is definitely over.

Enter Barack Obama into the picture!  What a breath of fresh air this man brings to the Presidency.  He is intelligent, articulate, handsome, and dedicated to his beautiful family.  Beyond this, he honestly wants to be a President for all Americans including those who do not have six figure incomes.  Furthermore, he is black and the vast majority of us living today never thought we would see the day when a black man would be elected as our President.  Americans should be proud that we are mature enough to look past the color of a man’s skin and judge a person based upon the character and abilities he has to offer in the service of his country.  Truly, Barack Obama has already changed America by the very act of being elected and to further succeed all he has to do reverse and not do what George Bush did.  The real issue is how committed he really is to doing this?

Barack Obama is our President because he promised to bring about “change” and the areas he intends to concentrate his efforts on are the economy, Iraq, and health care.  Anyone who owns a television knows this is the case and certainly a majority of us are in favor of changes in these areas.  This is all well and good as far as it goes, but the reality of our situation is such that it doesn’t go very far and the truth of the matter is that we really know very little about what Barack Obama will actually do when he takes office.  This is the problem with electing a populist President.  He makes you feel good and proud to be an American and there is certainly something to be said for this, but substance and perceptions are two different things and it is substance that makes or breaks a presidency.

Like most Americans, I was overjoyed when Barack Obama was elected President, but I had reservations because he is a member of one of our two dominating political parties.  To be sure, our electoral process boils down to the party seeking power trying to convince people that they will solve the problems created by the party still in power.  But the real truth, which most Americans do not understand, is that we are where we are today because both political parties collaborated and cooperated to get us here.  Eight years is not time enough to entirely change where our Nation is heading, so it stands to reason that our hijacked ship of state is on a course determined by its equally culpable co-captains; the Republicans and Democrats in keeping with the wishes and mandates of our New World Order masters.  Therefore, while Barack Obama focused his entire campaign upon change, a prudent citizen is more than justified in wondering just how committed to change Barack Obama really is.  While no one can make this determination with definitive certainty, enough information is available to make a reasonable determination as to what he will and will not do.

Bush criminalizes anti-war movement and humanitarian aid

1 Comment

This is only one of the Executive Orders issued by a tyrant; a man totally dedicated to eradication of the Constitution, civil liberties and inalienable rights. 

What you can read in this Order are the words of man terrified of his own people; one who seeks to silence them.  Notorious for his own criminal activities, threatened by possible prosecution for crimes against humanity, Bush has effectively rendered dissent against government actions as criminal.  This Executive Order is written to be intentionally and broadly interpreted.  On its face it appears to criminalize persons who might be actively involved in supporting Iraq either physically or monetarily against the United States. This can even include those (religious groups?) who might try to give humanitarian aid. 

As in almost all of Bush’s E.O.’s, he grants himself the power at will to be the single or unilateral “decider” of who is or is not one of this newly created class of criminals.

Its an odd turn of events when the most corrupt and criminal among us abuses its power and authority to criminalize Constitutional rights.

Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, as amended (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.)(IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.)(NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that, due to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by acts of violence threatening the peace and stability of Iraq and undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq and to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people, it is in the interests of the United States to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, and expanded in Executive Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, and relied upon for additional steps taken in Executive Order 13350 of July 29, 2004, and Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004. I hereby order:

Section 1. (a) Except to the extent provided in section 203(b)(1), (3), and (4) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(1), (3), and (4)), or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted prior to the date of this order, all property and interests in property of the following persons, that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of United States persons, are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense,

(i) to have committed, or to pose a significant risk of committing, an act or acts of violence that have the purpose or effect of:

(A) threatening the peace or stability of Iraq or the Government of Iraq; or

(B) undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people;

(ii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, logistical, or technical support for, or goods or services in support of, such an act or acts of violence or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(iii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section include, but are not limited to, (i) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order, and (ii) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 2. (a) Any transaction by a United States person or within the United States that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 3. For purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 4. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the type specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 and expanded in Executive Order 13315, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 5. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that, because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render these measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 and expanded in Executive Order 13315, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to section 1(a) of this order.

Sec. 6. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order. The Secretary of the Treasury may redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States Government, consistent with applicable law. All agencies of the United States Government are hereby directed to take all appropriate measures within their authority to carry out the provisions of this order and, where appropriate, to advise the Secretary of the Treasury in a timely manner of the measures taken.

Sec. 7. Nothing in this order is intended to affect the continued effectiveness of any rules, regulations, orders, licenses, or other forms of administrative action issued, taken, or continued in effect heretofore or hereafter under 31 C.F.R. chapter V, except as expressly terminated, modified, or suspended by or pursuant to this order.

Sec. 8. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right, benefit, or privilege, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, instrumentalities, or entities, its officers or employees, or any other person.

Advance planning by Bush & Paulson…….Executive Order #13456

In January of this year, Bush signed Executive Order # 13456 allowing, permitting and encouraging the so-called [investment] in America by foreign agents, individuals and corporations.  Apparently trying to make sure he finished his father’s efforts to sell off the taxpayer funded and owned infrastructure to private interests, including foreigners, this EO makes clear the intent to divest America of all assets previously funded and paid for by US taxpayers, and the intention to offshore even more of our jobs and businesses to foreign investors. 

 

We are currently an estimated 10 to 70 TRILLION in debt as a nation.  As a country, we own less than 38% of all lands, and less than 42% of what were national assets. 

 

I have no doubt this EO was written with full knowledge of the planned collapse of our economy.  When reading through it, note the extensive powers already delegated to the Treasury Secretary…..many of which were promoted as new powers under the bailout package.

Executive Order 13456—Further

Amendment of Executive Order 11858

Concerning Foreign Investment in the

United States

 

 

 

Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 11858. Executive Order 11858

of May 7, 1975, as amended, is further amended to read as follows:

 

‘‘FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the

laws of the United States of America, including section 721 of the Defense

Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2170), and section

301 of title 3, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

Section 1. Policy. International investment in the United States promotes economic growth, productivity, competitiveness, and job creation. It is the policy of the United States to support unequivocally such investment, consistent with the protection of the national security. (end excerpt)

 

Note:  In what is nothing less than a paragraph containing outright lies, we know that investment in the United States actually means the buying up of home mortgages, public lands, bridges, roads and other infrastructure. 

 

International investment kills jobs and does not create anything but devastation.  Competitiveness is not even a consideration as international investment is a tool for eradicating competitiveness.  Productivity is a term used to disguise the slave labor wages and work conditions of poorer countries where the businesses are relocated.  Paying non-livable wages to people who are unbelievably poor but who are forced to take the only work that may be available allows the investors to reap profits by sheer volume.  That’s not an increase in actual productivity, only an increase of people forced into slavery.

 

Reading through this entire EO, we find that [national security] is exposed for the fraud that it is. 

 

(2nd excerpt)……………….

 

(a) The functions of the President under subsections (b)(1)(A) (relating to review and consideration after notification),

 

(b)(1)(D) (relating to unilateral initiation of review and consideration), and

(m)(3)(A) (relating to inclusion in annual report and designation) of the Act are assigned to the Secretary of the Treasury.

 

(b) The Secretary of the Treasury shall perform the function of issuance of regulations under section 721(h) of the Act. The Secretary shall consult the Committee with respect to such regulations prior to any notice and comment and prior to their issuance. (end 2nd excerpt)

 

Note:

In this section, in preparation for the planned economic collapse, Paulson is given extraordinary powers as S.O.T.    Preparing the way for the wholesale divesting of American assets, Paulson is given the power to begin the selling off of infrastructure, financial and otherwise.  This will be accomplished by allowing his office to establish the rules and regulations under which this selling off will occur once the planned economic collapse takes place. 

 

Having gotten ten months head start, and knowing what was ahead, allowed Paulson to begin negotiations far in advance. 

 

Also note, every effort is made to avoid congress, or congressional approval.  The president claims [unilateral] authority to review and consider these sales of assets. 

 

We must work to end all Executive Orders!  And to expunge all those from the past which are known to be unconstitutional.

Losing Faith in The Democrats

Leave a comment

 Article appears in OpEd News March 10, 2008   

Like many of you, I have a profound sense of betrayal regarding the Democrat’s.  We fought hard to put them in the majority in both houses, most of us believing that once there, the Patriot Act, The Security Enhancement Act, The Military Commissions Act, The John Warner Defense Authorization Act and a host of other anti-American legislation would be reversed.  We really believed that the Democrats would save the day.  We were fools.

Not only have none of these un-constitutional or civil rights violating bills been reversed, we can’t even get the Democratic leadership to acknowledge them; they won’t even talk about them. 

Nancy Pelosi set the stage for what was to come, for what we should expect from the new Democratic congress when she announced that “Impeachment is off the table” right after being sworn in as speaker of the house.  Pelosi made this statement knowing full well that the new position she just assumed was due in large part to the belief by voters that impeachment would begin almost immediately.  And it should have.

Henry Reid, who became Senate majority leader, went from his persona as “Givem’ Hell Harry”, to one of docile acquiescence to the Bush regime.  Now, in lockstep with the Bush White House, he and Pelosi have supported many of the demands from Bush.  Neither of them seems capable or able to re-establish congress as a recognizable branch of government. 

Although bloggers who seem to be more informed and educated than congress,  and internet news services have reported continuously on the illegality of Executive Orders that have overrun the law, or on Presidential Directives that give the president dictatorial powers, the Democrats have remained silent.  They appear to know nothing.  Presidential signing statements which order departments and agencies to not abide by the new law being signed…….just seem to fade into nothing. 

The REAL ID act which was attached to another bill under the “and for other purposes” enacting clause, is intended to result in massive civil unrest come May.  Even with the threats of retaliation from Homeland Security if states do not comply with this unfunded and unconstitutional mandate, the Democrats just can’t seem to bring themselves to repeal this act, much less to debate it.  Not one of them seems to be aware that HSD is strictly prohibited in their enacting charter from ever establishing a national ID of any kind, including designating it as a “domestic passport”. 

What about those retaliatory threats from HSD?  Did those just fly under the radar of congress?  Since when does a government agency threaten the citizens with retaliation?  Did any one bother to ask just what that would consist of?  Did anyone inside the golden walls of congress, inside that bastion of political drama stop for one minute and tell Chertof he is out of line?  No….they didn’t.  Again, we were greeted with absolute silence.

Maybe none of this would bother me so much if I wasn’t such a CSPAN junkie.  Watching the house and senate very nearly every day that they are in session, I am struck by the absolute wasting of time spent on congratulating each other on what a fine and distinguished person the other is.  Then there are the declarations of friendship across the isle.  Possibly true…..but who cares? 

While Iraq falls into a pile of rubble, while our military puts its collective life on the line in this war of greed for oil…..we have house members taking up valuable minutes (that’s about all they get, which effectively puts a cap on real debate) trying to have some home state notable’s birthday recognized.  We have “debates” on whether or not flag burning is a threat to national security.  We take votes on whether the Boxer Rebellion was significant.  We pass non-binding, nonsensical resolutions against the war.  And then, everyone disappears!  They are all in committee’s somewhere discussing important issues, supposedly.  In the end, absolutely nothing about anything is done of any relevance.  And when the house or senate doesn’t want you to hear their voting, they shut the mike’s off and you are treated to classical music. 

After six years of destruction under Republican rule our Republic is barely recognizable.  The changes we so desperately hoped for with a change in leadership are not going to happen.  We are still being assailed by the illogical fallacies promoted by the Bush fascists.  Too many of us still believe that giving up our liberty will somehow magically prevent acts of terrorism and even more of us cannot grasp the idea that sending our military to war to fight for freedom (a lie) is negated by our willingness to forfeit freedom at home. 

In the end, it may be time for a third political party to form; one not afraid to rock the boat, to shake up the status quo.  We need individuals who not only know what the problems are but who are willing to speak about them and fight to repeal these insidious attempts to dismantle our country. 

The day of the Republicans is over.  Even they know it.  At this point in time 21 have resigned from cabinet positions or have resigned or are not seeking re-election in the house or senate.  Career politicians jumping ship and running like the rats they are.  But we have to ask ourselves if what we are left with after this bailing out by Republicans is any more beneficial to us than if they stayed?  Quite frankly, as things stand now, I would say, no.
