On October 17, 2006, ‘a date which will live in infamy’ . . . there were two acts of tyranny committed. The first was a public signing of the ‘Military Commissions Act of 2006’ which suspended habeas corpus allowing the president to declare you an ‘enemy combatant’ and end your rights to seek legal or judicial relief from unlawful imprisonment.
The second act of tyranny took place in a private Oval Office ceremony, in which the president signed into law the ‘John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2007’ which essentially eliminates the protections of the Posse Comitatus Act and re-wrote the Insurrection Act. The NDAA will allow the president to declare a &lsquoublic emergency’ and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder’!
About The Military Commissions Act of 2006 . . .
“A writ of habeas corpus which is Latin for ‘you have the body’ [as proof] is a judicial mandate to a prison official ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not he should be released from custody."(1)
“The writ of habeas corpus serves as an important check on the manner in which state courts pay respect to federal constitutional rights. The writ is ‘the fundamental instrument for safeguarding individual freedom against arbitrary and lawless state action’."(1)
Expressing the pessimist’s view was law professor Jonathan Turley who wrote: “The Congress just gave the president despotic powers and you could hear a yawn across the country [. . . ] People clearly don’t realize what a fundamental change it is about who we are as a country. What happened today changed us. And I’m not too sure we’re going to change back anytime soon."(2)
Turley also said that: “What, really, a time of shame this is for the American system. What the Congress did and what the president signed today essentially revokes over 200 years of American principles and values."(3)
You can watch this MSNBC video where Keith Olbermann and guest Jonathon Turley, Constitutional Law professor at George Washington University discuss the Military Commissions Act here.
About the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2007 . . .
The NDAA essentially eliminated the Posse Comitatus Act and re-wrote the Insurrection Act so that the president can declare a &lsquoublic emergency’ and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder’!
“The historic and ominous re-writing of the Insurrection Act, accomplished in the dead of night, which gives Bush the legal authority to declare martial law, is now an accomplished fact."(4)
“In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law. It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President’s ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions."(4)
What ‘Rights’ Have Been Taken From You?
“On September 28, by a vote of 65-34, the Senate formally passed S. 3930, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (MCA). The next day, the House of Representatives followed suit, passing the act by a vote of 250-170, . . . [whereby] “alien unlawful enemy combatants … [to be] subject to trial by military commissions” without the constitutional safeguards American citizens possess against illegal detainment and judicial railroading."(5)
As far as an American citizen is concerned the definition of the term ‘unlawful enemy combatant’ has ominous import for them. The law states: “(i) a person who has engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its co-belligerents who is not a lawful enemy combatant (including a person who is part of the Taliban, al-Qaeda, or associated forces); or (ii) a person who, before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, has been determined to be an unlawful enemy combatant by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal or another competent tribunal established under the authority of the president or the secretary of defense."(6)
“Notice that this definition contains no exception for Americans; it throws the blanket over citizen and alien alike by using the word &lsquoerson’ rather than ‘alien’."(5)
‘The Military Commissions Act of 2006’ is a violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the U. S.Constitution which states: “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.” Is there an invasion? Yes! Our country has been invaded by 30 million illegal aliens. Does the president or our Congress intend to do anything about the invasion? No!
Ominously, the full text of the ‘Military Commissions Act of 2006’ was published by the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations). The fact that the CFR published the ‘Act’ would appear to be prima facie evidence of the Shadow Government’s support for its genesis!(6)
The Center for Constitutional Rights commented that the: “Congress is now rubber-stamping a bill that was written by the President which gives the President expansive power to detain without judicial oversight. If the Military Commissions Act is passed, it will grant the President the privilege of kings, allowing him to imprison any critics as alleged ‘enemy combatants,’ never to see the inside of a court room or to have the chance to challenge their detention or their treatment. What would we say if another country passed a law making it legal to snatch U.S. citizens and detain them indefinitely?”(7)
Sadly, the American Forces Press Service, propagandized the signing by utilizing the most common form of deception . . . omission. Read how they announced the signing but uttered not one peep about the potentially devastating future it has unleashed.(8)
Martial Law Now Stalks America . . .
On October 17, 2006, “Public Law 109-364, or the ‘John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2007’ (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a &lsquoublic emergency’ and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder’.”(5)
What the National Defense Authorization Act does is end the Posse Comitatus Act of 1787. Posse Comitatus is Latin for &lsquoower of the country.’ It WAS a “law, [that] was championed by far-sighted Southern lawmakers in 1878. They had experienced a fifteen year military occupation by the US Army in post-Civil War law enforcement. They understood the heel of a jackboot."(9)
“In a nutshell, this act bans the Army, Navy, Airforce and Marines from participating in arrest, searches, seizure of evidence and other police-type activity on U.S. soil. The Coast Guard and National Guard troops under the control of state governors are excluded from the act."(9)
All these new tyrannical laws have been created obsessively to combat the amorphous concept of ‘fighting terrorism’ . . . an undefined and ever present boogey man. So not only is the military now permitted to be used around the country, the president can take over the National Guard and the Coast Guard too. It can happen under ANY pretext, at which time the president will become the dictator-in-chief.
According to Gen. Tommy Franks, martial law will replace the Constitution after the next terror attack. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado he said: “It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution. Two steps, very, very important.”(10)
Written Dissent to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2007:
No matter your opinion of Cynthia McKinney, her 26 page dissent of the NDAA of 2007 is very compelling and highlights the damage and erosion, of tasks and performance, taking place between the police and the military in direct contradiction of our Constitution. The following excerpt is from the section concerning the issue of Posse Comitatus [pp. 30-31 .pdf (pp. 528-529)] which can be found here: (11)
This Authorization should also have reaffirmed the principle of Posse Comitatus for military forces, police and contracted security or combat forces. This Constitutional principle creates a bright line between military and police functions.
In the wake of the attacks on September 11, 2001, the Bush administration has continued to make widespread and unnecessary changes in laws and administrative powers that undermine the most basic Constitutional principles and protected rights of citizens in a democracy [ours is a Constitutional Republic].
Recently, both President Bush and Senator Mark Warner (VA) have renewed calls to undermine or reverse the Posse Comitatus Act of 1867 [sic - i.e.,1878], which re-established the Constitutional principle and practice of separating military and police functions in a democracy [ours is a Constitutional Republic].
The experience of the founding fathers with the British model that combined the functions was enough to cause them to set that division sharply in administrative powers and civilian command of the military.
The principles began to be eroded in the period following the end of the Civil War, and the effective occupation of areas of the south by federal troops who were holding military tribunals, carrying out executions of citizens and usurping local police and judicial control. Their excesses came to the attention of the post-war Congress and they passed the Posse Comitatus Act to forbid the military being used to enforce laws.
Further erosion followed the end of the Vietnam War, when police departments were increasingly militarized in training and equipment as well as employing a large number of returning war veterans. SWAT teams were created, a clearly militarized police function, getting training on military bases with advanced weapons.
When President George H.W. Bush came into office in the 1980s, his programs made increased use of military troops and equipment in the war against drugs, supporting police and collecting intelligence in regard to civilian crimes. Joint Military Task Forces were created that combined DoD, FBI, SWAT, ATF and local police in sieges at Wounded Knee, Waco, Texas and against MOVE in Philadelphia, using tanks and military explosives.:,
President Bush has ample authority under provisions of existing laws on disaster response to mobilize and command any and all federal assets, including military forces. State directed National Guard units have always worked in conjunction with federal troops without being put under federal control themselves. Both National Guard and regular military forces are authorized under federal and state laws to use force to protect lives, property and public safety during a declared emergency. Police functions have been wisely left to local police and state National Guard forces, except when the situation was so dire they could not function.
Executive Orders and PDDs Say How They Will Do It!
Once martial law is invoked, then the Executive Orders (EOs) concerned with national security or defense issues are then ALSO invoked. These were previously known as National Security Directives. Under the Clinton Administration, they were renamed ‘Presidential Decision Directives’ commonly known as PDDs.
For example PDD 63, issued in 1998 that speaks to protecting America’s critical infrastructure “including telecommunications, banking and finance, energy, and transportation-that supports the U.S. economy, government, and military."(12)
“The aim of PDD 63 was to introduce an improved information system infrastructure that is secure and interconnected by the year 2003, and to significantly increase security to government systems by the year 2000. PDD 63 designed a new configuration to protect the country’s critical infrastructure. Some of the components are as follows:
* A national coordinator to handle critical infrastructure, as well as foreign terrorism and domestic mass destruction; * The National Infrastructure Protection Center at the Federal Bureau of Investigation to bring together representatives from various agencies for information sharing and collaboration; * Information Sharing and Analysis Center to be set up by the private sector in cooperation with the government; * A National Infrastructure Assurance Council made up of private sector leaders and state/local officials to provide advice for a national plan; . . .”
Why and who will be those from the &lsquorivate sector’ running our government in a time of crisis. Will it be those international bankers and industrialists? It gives no parameters. It is concerning that they could ALL be the very people who want a One World Monopoly and the creation of the North American Union. What better, quick and efficient way to enforce their plans than to have them spring forward using a domestic tragedy like 9/11. But then that has always been their game plan.
Executive Orders (EOs) are legally binding orders given by the President, acting as the head of the Executive Branch, to Federal Administrative Agencies. Executive Orders are generally used to direct federal agencies and officials in their execution of congressionally established laws or policies. However, in many instances they have been used to guide agencies in directions contrary to congressional intent.
Executive Orders do not require Congressional approval to take effect but they have the same legal weight as laws passed by Congress. The President’s source of authority to issue Executive Orders can be found in the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which grants to the President the “executive Power.”
Section 3 of Article II further directs the President to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” To implement or execute the laws of the land, Presidents give direction and guidance to Executive Branch agencies and departments, often in the form of Executive Orders.”
But Today’s Executive Orders Go FAR Beyond Those Rules As These Quotes Attest . . .
“Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool.” Paul Begala, former Clinton advisor, The New York Times, July 5, 1998 (13)
“We’ve switched the rules of the game. We’re not trying to do anything legislatively.” Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, The Washington Times, June 14, 1999 (13)
Read over the following Executive Orders so you can understand what TOTAL, COMPLETE, and DICTATORIAL POWER these orders will invoke. Go here to search for the actual text for the Executive Orders as well at the current disposition of those Executive Orders: (14)
Go to that Federal Register and check out the following Executive Orders: 13010, 13130, 13228, 13231, 13234, 14284, 13284, 13286 (transfers control of 12919 to DH.
Pay Particular Attention to Executive Order 12919 . . .
The president of the United States, with the help of federal agencies, will have control over the following, as annotated by Paula Demers in 1996: (15)
(a) All transportation, “regardless of ownership.” This means that if they need your car, they’ve got it. They will control all public transportation also.
(b) All forms of energy, including &ldquoetroleum, gas (natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels (including all forms of coal), atomic energy, and the production, conservation, use, control, and distribution (including pipelines).” This means the federal government will have complete control over who will have power (electricity, etc.) and who won’t. They will be able to &ldquoull the plug” on us at their discretion.
(c) All farm equipment. Farmers will not have to be part of “the production or preparation for market use of food resources.” They did this in Russia. The farmers worked for the government.
(d) All fertilizer. This means that any product, or combination of products that contain one or more of the elements--nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium--will be able to be confiscated by the government. The reason they have this combination is because it includes anything that can be used as a plant nutrient. If you want a garden, forget it.
(e) All food resources. ALL means ALL. This includes all “commodities and products, simple, mixed, or compound, or complements to such commodities or products that are being ingested by either human beings or animals....” This includes all “starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, cotton, tobacco, wool mohair, hemp, flax fiber, and naval stores.” That means they can come into your house and take all your food. Period. Catherine Bertini, the executive director “UN World Food Program” made an interesting comment in Beijng, China, at the UN 4th World Conference on Women in September, 1995. She said, “Food is power. We use it to change behavior. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologize.” [Henry Kissinger has infamously said: ‘Food can be used as a weapon!’]
(f) All food resource facilities. This means &ldquolants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for production, processing, distribution and storage (including cold food storage).” They go on to say that it includes “livestock and poultry feed and seed.” In other words, they will control anything that has to do with food.
(j) All health resources. This means EVERYTHING. They will have control over all “materials, facilities, health supplies, and equipment (including pharmaceutical, blood collecting and dispensing supplies, biological, surgical textiles, and emergency surgical instruments and supplies).” They will be able to come into your home and take your medicines.
(k) All metals and minerals. [Think gold and silver confiscation]
(m) All water resources. ALL usable water from all of the sources within the jurisdiction of the United States. All the water that can be “managed, controlled and allocated to meet emergency requirements.” Not only will they be able to turn off your water supply, they can come and take any water you have stored in your house.
Speaking of Water . . .
Did you know that some senators in the state of Washington were working to get a bill passed that would require you to obtain a permit in order to collect rainwater on you own property? Who were the sponsors of such an absurdity? Why they included a Rockefeller of course, who else? What did Senator Dick Boxlightner have to say about such insanity: “What’s next, a permit for collecting strawberries off plants in your garden?” Little does Senator Boxlightner know that’s EXACTLY where they are heading.(16)
The Monopolists Want to Control ALL Seed Production . . .
Huge monolithic corporations like Monsanto are viciously going after farmers whose crops became genetically modified when the WIND cross-pollinated their crops with the PATENTED (monopolized) crops planted by Monsanto. Companies like Monsanto have created, and then deliberately left unidentified, where their test plots of patented crops are growing all across America. That way they can know where and who you are, but you cannot protect yourself from them until they claim your crop is contaminated with their patented technology and sue you for illegally using their patented materials. In fact, Monsanto has sued so many farmers that there is now a national hotline (1-888-FARMHLP) set up to assist them.
Monsanto employees will walk right onto your land without your permission and take samples of your crops off to their labs for investigation, then they’ll haul you into court for stealing and not paying for their genetically modified products. You will be deliberately ruined financially AND psychologically. Your farms that have been in your family for generations will be taken from your by extortion and threat of a mega-lawsuit OR when they win their court suit against you. In the legal process they can ruin you financially or psychologically before you ever get your day in court. It’s happening all across America and Canada. Get the picture? Educate yourself!
If you disbelieve such claims . . . you should watch all the YouTube and Google videos on genetically modified seeds, in particular the ones about Percy Schmeiser a Canadian farmer. Or, you can purchase the DVD by Deborah Koons Garcia titled: The Future of Food: There’s a revolution happening . . . Educate yourself about how the One World Monopolists are already working hard to take over ALL seed production via monopolistic patents.
FYI . . . The Monopolists ALREADY Control the Seed Production in Iraq
Before the U.S. invasion, agriculture in Iraq was the product of centuries of culling and refining heirloom seed collections so that the best seeds suited for a given location, weather, soil and water source were saved and used. The war in Iraq conveniently destroyed the country’s seed industry, putting the country’s domestic food supply at risk.
May 11, 2003 - June 28, 2004 Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq
The solution to the seed problem was solved by U.S. Ambassador Paul Bremer to Iraq when he delivered some 100 written orders for governing Iraq. As Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), Bremer issued the following CPA Order #81 about Iraqi seed production:
“Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions, including Resolution 1483 and 1511 (2003) . . .
Recognizing that companies, lenders and entrepreneurs require a fair, efficient, and predictable environment for protection of their intellectual property, [and] Noting that several provisions of the current Iraqi Patent and Industrial Design Law and related legislation does not meet current internationally-recognized standards of protection,
Recognizing the demonstrated interest of the Iraqi Governing Council for Iraq to become a full member in the international trading system, known as the World Trade Organization [WTO], and the desirability of adopting modern intellectual property standards,
Acting in a manner consistent with the Report of the Secretary General to the Security Council of July 17, 2003, concerning the need for the development of Iraq and its transition from a non-transparent centrally planned economy to a free market economy characterized by sustainable economic growth through the establishment of a dynamic private sector, and the need to enact institutional and legal reforms to give it effect, . . ."(17)
“The important information about Iraqi Order 81 is that it was designed to have a major impact on the way farming is done in Iraq. This order prohibits Iraqi farmers from using the methods of agriculture that they have used for centuries. The practice of saving seeds from one year to the next is now illegal in Iraq. Order 81 wages war on Iraqi farmers. They have lost the freedom to choose their own methods of agriculture. The legalese in which the orders are written creates confusion about their exact meaning, but the desired result is obvious. Order 81 prohibits the farmers from using their own seeds, on their own farms, to grow their own crops."(18)
“In the name of agricultural reconstruction this new law deprives Iraqi farmers of their inherent right, exercised for the past 10,000 years in the fertile Mesopotamian arc, to save and replant seeds. It enables the penetration of Iraqi agriculture by Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow Chemical and other corporate giants that control the global seed trade."(19)
How will they enforce such a diabolical order? They will probably use ‘Terminator Seed’ technology to do so.
What Exactly ARE ‘Terminator Seeds’ You Ask?
To fully understand the truly ‘dark side’ of a monopoly, how about using “food as a weapon” as was once declared by Henry Kissinger. All food starts with seeds and there is now a patented technology invented by a company called Delta & Pine Land, which is about to be acquired by Monsanto, because they engineered a ‘Terminator’ seed which cannot be used for the next year’s crop because it automatically self-destructs at the end of the growing season. How sick is that?
In a well researched and documented story you will find a litany of twisted devious financial and political connections concluding with three paragraphs that state: “The key scientific member of the Delta & Pine Land board since 1993 has been Dr. Nam-Hai Chua. Chua, 62, is also head of the Rockefeller University Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory in New York, and has been for over 25 years. The labs are at the heart of the Rockefeller tax-exempt Foundation’s decades-long support which has spent more than $100 million of its own research grant funding to create their Gene Revolution.” Chua heads a laboratory staff of twenty-one predominately Asian workers.(20)(21)(22)
Until 1995, Chua was also a scientific consultant to Monsanto Corporation, as well as to DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred International. Chua is at the heart of Rockefeller’s Gene Revolution. And, clearly, Delta & Pine Land and their research on Terminator [seed] have been in the center of that work."(20)(21)
How Did America Become What it is Today?
If you think about it . . . by sending our manufacturing base to Mexico or off-shoring to other foreign countries, using H-1B visas and others to insource workers, and while at the same time out-sourcing jobs. By doing so, the One World Monopolists (OWM) have FORCED America into becoming global. All has been done in the name of &lsquorofits’ when in the past we were self-contained and produced all we needed for ourselves and exported our excess around the world. Now we are dependent on countries like Communist China, etc., to supply stores like Wal-mart with nearly all its merchandise. Thus we have become a de facto global economy without our consent and strident calls for it to stop. They are killing America slowly but surely.
In fact . . . you will find that the cabal working towards the NAU has gone one step further and created non-profit foundations to develop many of the road and infrastructure projects that are planned under NAFTA &lsquolus’ called the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). This means that NO TAXES will enter the coffers of America’s government till. Even worse . . . you will find that they are using all manner of federal tax dollars to fund some of the ‘non-profit’ projects that are already in place. Clever by half, wouldn’t you say. Take taxpayer dollars, make money but pay no taxes in return, while America, by default, becomes the North American Union.
Are You Angry Yet? Have You Any Fear Yet? If Not . . . Read On . . .
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions 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. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a ‘new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis’."(23)(24)
The Escalating Role of the Military . . .
“The Pentagon, as one might expect, plays an even more direct role in martial law operations. Title XIV of the new law, entitled, Homeland Defense Technology Transfer Legislative Provisions, authorizes the Secretary of Defense to create a Homeland Defense Technology Transfer Consortium to improve the effectiveness of the Department of Defense (DOD) processes for identifying and deploying relevant DOD technology to federal, State, and local first responders.”(4)
“In other words, the law facilitates the ‘transfer’ of the newest in so-called ‘crowd control’ technology and other weaponry designed to suppress dissent from the Pentagon to local militarized police units. The new law builds on and further codifies earlier “technology transfer” agreements, specifically the 1995 DOD-Justice Department memorandum of agreement achieved back during the Clinton-Reno regime."(4)(25)
Are You a Border Crosser Listed in the Automated Targeting System (AT?
“Americans and foreigners crossing U.S. borders since 2002 have been assessed by the Homeland Security Department’s computerized Automated Targeting System, or ATS . . . [using an] unannounced assignment of terrorism risk assessments to American international travelers by a computerized system managed from an unmarked, two-story brick building in Northern Virginia."(26)
“The travelers [you] are not allowed to see or directly challenge these risk assessments, which the government intends to keep on file for 40 years. Some or all data in the system can be shared with state, local and foreign governments for use in hiring, contracting and licensing decisions. Courts and even some private contractors can obtain some of the data under certain circumstances."(26)
“It is simply incredible that the Bush administration is willing to share this sensitive information with foreign governments and even private employers, while refusing to allow U.S. citizens to see or challenge their own terror scores,” Leahy said. This system ‘highlights the danger of government use of technology to conduct widespread surveillance of our daily lives without proper safeguards for privacy’."(26)
Some Examples of Military Technology and Tactics Already Being Used On YOU!
According to Sec’y of the Air Force Michael Wynne: “Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield . . . The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne."(27)
What ‘others’ does he mean? We American citizens? Certainly not the news media because they are in league with the monopolists!
“If we’re not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation,” said Wynne. “(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."(27)
Oh, so now we know . . . he is not concerned with complaints from ‘We the People’ . . . only those in the ‘world press.’
Lastly . . . “The Air Force has paid for research into nonlethal weapons, but he said the service is unlikely to spend more money on development until injury problems are reviewed by medical experts and resolved."(27)
That’s a backhanded admission that people ARE injured by use of ‘non-lethal’ weapons. Don’t you wonder if they will do a five year study to determine if there are any long term effects to being microwaved? That’s probably not in their plans. They could care less about Americans. If injury does result in future medical problems they can do what they have always done and deny there was any ‘cause and effect’ as in ‘Agent Orange’ or depleted uranium (DU). Their only concern is about being ‘vilified in the world press’. Comforting isn’t it?
Then there was the school safety drill . . .
In Wyoming, Michigan there was a ‘school safety drill’ that included police officers in riot gear with weapons.
“Students, who were unaware police were conducting a drill, were taken from the classroom into the halls, patted down by officers and asked what they had in their pockets . . . Officers wore protective gear, including vests and helmets, and carried rifles that were unloaded and marked with colored tape to indicate they were not live weapons . . . “(28)
Diana Silva, a parent of an eighth-grade student, said the drill went too far. “My child was with his face to the wall in the hallway of the high school . . . I certainly don’t want anything like this happening to my child."(28)
“Principal David Britten said students weren’t told ahead of time to make the drill as realistic as possible. Teachers were informed moments before it took place, he said. “I think this is the best way to do it,” [School Principal] Britten said. “We’re not looking to scare anyone, but we want a sense of urgency."(28)
“But Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody said his officers were not aware students and parents were not told. He said his department will mandate that parents be notified ahead of time in the future."(28)
Just more practice done on the unsuspecting public. Children, some of whom “were so scared, they just about wet their pants . . . “(28)
Surprise . . . the Military was Ready Even BEFORE the NDAA Bill Was Signed . . .
In “April 2002, Defense Dept. officials implemented a plan for domestic U.S. military operations by creating a new U.S. Northern Command (CINC-NORTHCOM) for the continental United States. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called this ‘the most sweeping set of changes since the unified command system was set up in 1946’."(29)
“The NORTHCOM commander, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced, is responsible for ‘homeland defense and also serves as head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).… He will command U.S. forces that operate within the United States in support of civil authorities. The command will provide civil support not only in response to attacks, but for natural disasters’."(29)
Take, for instance . . . Hurricane Katrina in Sept. 2005. According to the Washington Post: “White House senior adviser Karl Rove told the governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, that she should explore legal options to impose martial law ‘or as close as we can get’. The White House tried vigorously, but ultimately failed, to compel Gov. Blanco to yield control of the state National Guard."(29)
Even then the Bush administration was pushing for martial law. Some have said that FEMA’s spectacular failure to respond to Katrina resulted from the White House policy to cut back FEMA and head the department with someone totally unqualified for the job was done in order to strengthen the proposal and funding for a military response to disasters. Thus the multi-million funding for detention facilities will give substance and support for expanding NORTHCOM’s ability to respond to any domestic disorders.
The New York Times Chimes in with Their Propaganda:
“As criticism of the response to Hurricane Katrina has mounted, one of the most pointed questions has been why more troops were not available more quickly to restore order and offer aid. Interviews with officials in Washington and Louisiana show that as the situation grew worse, they were wrangling with questions of federal/state authority, weighing the realities of military logistics and perhaps talking past each other in the crisis."(30)
“To seize control of the mission, Mr. Bush would have had to invoke the Insurrection Act, which allows the president in times of unrest to command active-duty forces into the states to perform law enforcement duties. But decision makers in Washington felt certain that Ms. Blanco would have resisted surrendering control, as Bush administration officials believe would have been required to deploy active-duty combat forces before law and order had been re-established. “(30)
You did notice that it was Ms. Blanco and not Gov. Blanco whose title denotes the right to call out and control the National Guard of her state of Louisiana? Subtleties abound when propaganda is concerned.
The New York Times article go on to say: “At a news conference on Saturday, Mr. Chertoff said, ‘The unusual set of challenges of conducting a massive evacuation in the context of a still dangerous flood requires us to basically break the traditional model and create a new model, one for what you might call kind of an ultra-catastrophe’."(30)
Chertoff’s announcement is actually calling for an end to the ‘traditional model’ of Posse Comitatus and ‘creating a new model’ by overriding the Insurrection Act. His propaganda has left unsaid the damage that will be inflicted by ending your centuries-old rights and protections. Once the ‘new model’ is law . . . THEN, too late, you will understand that your important Constitutional protections are gone forever.
Was FEMA Really Incompetent or Was It ALL About Promoting the Need For Martial Law?
Why was FEMA so late, ineffective and accused of dragging their feet, cutting communication lines used by local first responders, turning back truckloads of water and supplies as well as refusing to let volunteer local boat owners, of which there are many in that area of the country, go in and rescue people. You don’t suppose FEMA’s &lsquoroblems’ were just a really opportune way to promote and get the National Defense Authorization Act of 2007 signed, sealed and delivered?(31)
You can find a list of FEMA’s blocking of relief efforts with clickable URLs to the source material here: (32)
There are many, including this author, who believe that the use of the National Guard to enter and confiscate the lawfully possessed weapons from homeowners in New Orleans after Katrina was simply a ‘trial run’ to discover how or IF the American citizens would react to such a blatant violation of their Constitutional rights!
You can watch the video of the National Guard Confiscating Guns in New Orleans on the Stop the North Ameican Union ‘Videos’ webpage found here to see how they violated and infringed our 2nd Amendment Constitutional right “to keep and bear Arms.” Or . . . you can purchase and donate to the NRA at the same time by purchasing their video Never Again! A Shocking Story of Gun Confiscation in America.
How did we arrive at this sorry state of affairs? There is a solid article written in 1996 titled Mission creep: the militarizing of America. Unfortunately, it is not referenced, but it will guide you through the maze of events that brought into being these outrageous rights-stealing new laws.(33)
Sadly . . . Carl Rove Got His Desired Martial Law!
As part of the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2007, the Pentagon is provided an additional $500 billion plus to enable the president to employ the “Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies . . . [such as] interference with State and Federal law . . . the President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of (”refuse” or “fail” in) maintaining public order, “in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy.”(4)
Once Arrested for ‘Insurrection’ or ‘Domestic Violence’ Where Will You Be Incarcerated?
“There [are] over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached.” (23)
“The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons."(23)
“Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation."(23)
“The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people."(23)
Kellogg Brown and Root, a Halliburton subsidiary, received a $385 million contract from the Department of Homeland Security to provide “temporary detention and processing capabilities” in January 2006.(34)
The Propaganda Is That They Are Being Built For Rounding Up Illegal Aliens . . .
It has been REPEATEDLY stated by government sources that it is not &ldquoractical or feasible” to deport millions of illegal aliens. However, our government apparently has plans to transport millions of Americans across the country and imprison them in concentration camps, or gulags or ‘detention centers.’ For what purpose or reason? For more details and locations see “FEMA Concentration Camps: Locations and Executive Orders here, including a word of caution from a Canadian Lady who questions some of the Canadian locations because of weather conditions, not by sightings]: (23)(35)
If you live near any of those alleged FEMA camps, it is your civic DUTY as American citizens to go to the locations mentioned in the ‘FEMA Concentration Camps’ report and determine for yourself, and others, if the report is accurate or not. If you find that these locations are not as identified, then you MUST report that to the website and others. If they ARE as stated then further their knowledge base with photographs and any other evidence you may obtain.
“In September , NORTHCOM conducted its highly classified Granite Shadow exercise in Washington. As William Arkin reported in the Washington Post, ‘Granite Shadow is yet another new Top Secret and compartmented operation related to the military’s extra-legal powers regarding weapons of mass destruction. It allows for emergency military operations in the United States without civilian supervision or control’."(29)
Still Don’t Believe It’s True? Then Read This . . . (36)
Another Surprise! . . . the SAME DAY that the John Warner NDAA was signed the Army was ready:
U.S. Army North, the Army’s newest service component command reached full operational capability Monday, which means that it is fully manned, equipped and ready to assume its mission.
As part of Army transformation, USARNORTH was formed to become the dedicated Army service component command to Northern Command, the unified command responsible for defending the homeland and coordinating defense support of civil authorities.
Located at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, USARNORTH achieved initial operating capability in September 2005, and is responsible for specific missions, including:
• Execute homeland defense and defense support of civil authorities missions.
• Provide training and readiness oversight of certified weapons of mass destruction—[for] civil support teams.
• Conduct the Army-to-Army portion of the theater cooperation mission with Canada and Mexico.
• Coordinate the activities of defense coordinating officers and their elements assigned in each Federal Emergency Management Agency region.
• Organize up to two task forces that, with augmentation, can become joint task forces and deploy within the operational area to command and control Department of Defense forces responding to homeland defense or civil support operations.
For the past 12 months, USARNORTH has been building its organization, readiness and mission capability. USARNORTH officially assumed the Army component command duties from Forces Command on Oct. 1.(37)
And . . . Where Will the Army Practice its Defense of the Homeland?
After all the uproar over the nationwide military base closings under BRAC, the “U.S. Army is eyeing another MILLION ACRES of southeastern Colorado ranch and croplands for additional training grounds for its modernized Army, and landowners who don’t want to lose their homesteads could be facing condemnation proceedings. . . The protest group said Las Animas County likely will be the most impacted by an army site expansion, and there are 567 farms and ranches with crop sales of $761,000 and livestock sales of more than $20 million that would be endangered."(38)
Those that are fighting to keep their land out of the clutches of the military-industrial complex have said: “Agriculture is one of the cornerstones of society, even though many people take it for granted, it is very much a national security issue. The United States is already dependent on foreign oil, what will happen if we become dependent on foreign countries for our food supplies as well? . . . We also hold firm to the belief that our national security relies as much on our efforts to produce food as it does on a good national defense, The group said entire towns would be removed from existence, ‘except as maybe [those that are useful as] urban warfare training sites’."(38)
In a ‘dodge’ by the military’s spokeswoman Karen Edge at the Fort Carson Army Base, it was stated that those concerns were premature. ‘All we’ve done is identify a training land deficit,’ . . . There currently is a moratorium on acquiring more land, so the Army will have to ask the Department of Defense for a waiver, and move forward from there.(38)
“Army officials said the base needs to have ‘a dynamic, fully integrated battlefield environment’ to train soldiers who are able to operation [sic] in smaller units and still control ‘significantly greater battle space’.” This quest for land is in addition to the 234,000 acres currently existing at Fort Carson.(38)
Lastly, a peek into your future . . .
In the small town of Morristown, TN: “The khaki-clad state troopers hup-hupped into formation on opposite sides of the courthouse lawn, wearing riot gear and clutching batons. About 100 state and local officers stood on the square this summer, some carrying M-16 rifles. They were more than a match for an equal number of mostly middle-aged locals arriving for the anti-illegal immigration rally. It was one of the most confounding spectacles this little town of 25,000 had ever seen. The only way to step on the lawn between the rows of troopers was through a security checkpoint, surrendering anything that looked like it could be used as a weapon. Ted Mitchell and his flag never made it in."(39)
“‘It’s an American flag!’ Mitchell sputtered. You can bring the flag into the rally, a police officer explained, but you have to leave your flag pole. Mitchell’s face got redder. His yelling got louder. In an instant the 62-year-old man was scuffling with the police. They pushed him to the ground, cuffed him and carted him off in a police car."(39)
Just where will they take the future, perhaps MILLIONS of flag waving patriots like Ted Mitchell? Watch this video detailing the preparations for the coming gulags or as they are euphemistically known as, ‘detention centers’ here on the Stop the North American Union (NAU) website’s ‘Videos’ webpage.
The Conclusion . . .
The goal of the One World Monopolists is to gain total and complete world domination. An oligarchy of monied elites who believe they are destined to rule and that you are destined to be ruled. They will answer to no one and run the world as they see fit.
According to Antony Sutton, a research fellow for the Hoover Institution for War, Revolution, and Peace at Stanford University: “While monopoly control of industries was once the objective of J.P. Morgan and J.D. Rockefeller, by the late nineteenth century the inner sanctums of Wall Street understood the most efficient way to gain an unchallenged monopoly was to go political and make society go to work for the monopolists-- under the name of the public good and the public interest."(40)
“Frederick C. Howe revealed the strategy of using government in a 1906 book, Confessions of a Monopolist: These are the rules of big business . . . Get a monopoly; let society work for you; and remember that the best of all business is politics . . . “(40)
Are we moving from . . . Freedom to Fascism as the Aaron Russo’s documentary video claims. You can watch his film which is archived on the Stop the North American Union ‘Videos’ webpage found here and judge for yourself!
The ‘Shadow Government’ working in plain sight, to create the North American Union using the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). They are well on their way to a One World Monopoly and they have begun their final mad dash to the finish line.
The oligarchs have become ever more arrogant and bold. They have concluded you are either asleep or brainwashed and propagandized into complacency. They are so close to complete conquest that they are now blatantly abusing our Constitution, Bill of Rights and laws in more ways than you can imagine in your wildest of dreams.
If the One World Monopolists succeed . . . they will consign us all to a living hell on earth!
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be. ~ Thomas Jefferson
