Trilateral Commission Continues to Dominate Obama

Tags: , , ,

Find­ings & Fore­casts 06/05/2013

The posi­tion of National Secu­rity Adviser acts like a gate keeper to the Pres­i­dent. This fact has never been lost on the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion, where Zbig­niew Brzezinski was National Secu­rity Adviser to Pres­i­dent Jimmy Carter in 1976. Brzezinski chore­o­graphed Carter’s every move, even brag­ging about it years later.

When it comes to national secu­rity issues (over­seas and domestic), nothing reaches the President’s eyes or ears without being fil­tered and screened by his Adviser. You can imagine pos­si­bility for manip­u­la­tion if the NSA has a secret agenda to use the Pres­i­dent in order to pro­mote goals favor­able to the mem­ber­ship of a pri­vate organization.

When Obama first took office, he appointed 12 per­cent of the U.S. Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship to top posts. Three of these posts related to national security:

  • National Secu­rity Adviser, Gen. James L. Jones
  • Deputy National Secu­rity Adviser, Thomas Donilon
  • Director of National Intel­li­gence, Admiral Dennis C. Blair

When Jones stepped down in October 2010, Tri­lat­eral Thomas Donilon was pro­moted to National Secu­rity Adviser, where he has served until he announced his res­ig­na­tion today.

Alas, that is not the end of Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion hege­mony over Obama. His new appointee? None other than Susan Rice, also a member of the Tri­lat­eral Commission.

Rice has been a key policy adviser to Obama since before he even took office. As Ambas­sador to the United Nations, Rice infa­mously presided over the pro­pa­ganda sur­rounding the Beng­hazi ter­rorist attack, which caused her to with­draw from con­sid­er­a­tion for appoint­ment to Sec­re­tary of State to replace Hillary Clinton (Bill Clinton was a member). Rice knew that her Senate con­fir­ma­tion hear­ings would not only be unsuc­cessful, but would force her to answer ques­tions, under oath, regarding her role in Benghazi.

As National Secu­rity Adviser, Senate con­fir­ma­tion for Rice is not required — she will simply take over the posi­tion without fur­ther fan­fare in early July.

The old guard Tri­lat­erals such as Zbig­niew Brzezinski, David Rock­e­feller and Henry Kissinger, are cer­tainly gloating over the unre­strained igno­rance of the Amer­ican public. After all, Tri­lat­erals  have dom­i­nated and con­trolled every pres­i­dent since Jimmy Carter in 1976. Walter Mon­dale, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Dick Cheney were all mem­bers, and loaded their respec­tive high-level posi­tions with other Trilaterals.

What is wrong with this pic­ture? When Lin­coln closed his famous Get­tys­burg Address with the words, the “gov­ern­ment of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”, he had never met the likes of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion. This pri­vate and elite group of glob­al­ists would more likely say to them­selves, “gov­ern­ment of the Com­mis­sion, by the Com­mis­sion and for the Commission.

Var­ious sto­ries have recently appeared recently that feign out­rage over paid access to the Pres­i­dent. That is, given a cer­tain level of cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions, a person can actu­ally secure a few min­utes with the Pres­i­dent one-on-one.  Talk about straining over a gnat while swal­lowing a camel: The Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion has mul­tiple points of 24x7 access to the Pres­i­dent and has had it for decades. Express con­cern over this and you will be handed a tin­foil hat while being made to sit in the corner.

There is another aspect to Rice’s appoint­ment to National Secu­rity Adviser — she will imme­di­ately fall under Obama’s “exec­u­tive priv­i­lege” defense to gain immu­nity that will let her skip tes­ti­fying before Con­gress on the Beng­hazi affair. Every­thing she touches from here on will be shrouded under the cloak of national security.

Tech­noc­racy Update

The fifth require­ment nec­es­sary for the imple­men­ta­tion of Tech­noc­racy was recorded in the Tech­noc­racy Study Course in 1932: “Pro­vide spe­cific reg­is­tra­tion of the con­sump­tion of each indi­vidual, plus a record and descrip­tion of the individual.”

His­toric Tech­noc­racy was the direct inspi­ra­tion for Huxley’s Brave New World and Orwell’s Nine­teen Eighty Four.  If you have never read these books, you should do so imme­di­ately. This is where we are headed and at break­neck speed. There is no turning back.

It has now been revealed that the Obama Admin­is­tra­tion has ordered, via secret court order, at least one major cell phone car­rier, Ver­izon, to turn over all phone call infor­ma­tion to the National Secu­rity Agency (NSA). This sur­veil­lance is specif­i­cally tar­geting Amer­ican citizens.

Sto­ries abound. The Atlantic Wire head­lines “Phone Sex, Banks & Google for Emails: The NSA Spying Is Bigger Than Ver­izon”:

“The National Secu­rity Agency’s war­rant for meta­data on every single Ver­izon call for three months is jaw-dropping in its scope. Except, well, the NSA’s sur­veil­lance of our com­mu­ni­ca­tions is most likely much, much bigger than that. Tech­nology has made it pos­sible for the Amer­ican gov­ern­ment to spy on cit­i­zens to an extent East Ger­many could only dream of. Basi­cally every­thing we say that can be traced dig­i­tally is being col­lected by the NSA. We’re sup­posed to trust that our gov­ern­ment will be much better behaved, but they’re not, and the White House almost admits it. That doesn’t mean they’re admit­ting everything.”

The NSA is not only col­lecting phone calls, but also bank trans­fers, finan­cial records, emails, travel records, social media com­mu­ni­ca­tions, health records and more. All of this will soon be housed in the NSA’s new mega-data-center in Utah, where a 5-zettabyte storage facility will be com­pleted this fall. All of the known dig­ital infor­ma­tion in the world is believed to be only about 2.7 zettabytes, so the NSA has big plans to spy on you. In fact, they will know more about you than you know about yourself.

The fol­lowing video by John White­head of the Ruther­ford Insti­tute expresses some of these concerns.

Fore­cast for America

The re-election of Barack Obama was not just about a single indi­vidual. More impor­tantly, his Admin­is­tra­tion, along with its Czars, appointees, health care reform, reg­u­la­tions, mil­i­tary restruc­turing, etc., will live on for at least another four years, if not permanently.

Obama’s first four years focused on restruc­turing the U.S. Admin­is­tra­tion. He put his Marxist-oriented system and poli­cies in place and found key people to move it for­ward. A majority of Amer­i­cans are appar­ently sup­porting this rev­o­lu­tion, but more because of mass manip­u­la­tion than rea­soned thinking.

I over­heard some older people speaking about the elec­tion results. One cursed George Bush as the evil destroyer and praised Obama because he also blamed Bush. Another said that he is happy as long as he keeps get­ting his Social Secu­rity checks and Medicare pay­ments. Another sug­gested that Obama’s eco­nomic poli­cies might not be so hot and the other two scoffed in total igno­rance. It was a use­less and point­less dis­cus­sion that led nowhere, and only showed that none of them under­stood a thing they were talking about.

My point is, this under­scores the mass igno­rance and mis­un­der­standing among the pop­u­lace. Such people are easily manipulated.

Here are a few fore­casts on the next four years with Obama at the helm.

Rad­ical Islam — Obama will do nothing to stem the spread of rad­ical Islam in the Middle East or else­where. His friendly dis­po­si­tion toward groups like the Muslim Broth­er­hood will encourage even more bold­ness in regime turnover like the ones seen in Egypt and Libya, and the U.S State Depart­ment and CIA will be helping every step of the way.

Health­care — Oba­macare is now set in con­crete. There will be no turning back. The quality of health care will dete­ri­o­rate and many doc­tors will exit the system, shrinking avail­able resources even fur­ther. Rationed care will be par­tic­u­larly hard on the elderly as they are increas­ingly viewed as use­less to society.

Cor­rup­tion — Scan­dals and cor­rup­tion will increase dra­mat­i­cally. During the first four years, nothing has stuck to Obama. He and his Admin­is­tra­tion have suc­cess­fully dodged every scandal, thumbed their nose at Con­gress and the Judi­cial system, and stonewalled every request for infor­ma­tion. Such “suc­cesses” will only encourage more bad behavior.

Police State - The overall mil­i­tary will be reduced in size with an increasing focus on domestic enforce­ment. That is, the mil­i­tary will be increas­ingly used in the U.S. to “fight home­grown terror.”  Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity screen­ings and check points will be expanded into all forms of travel and public safety: train, bus, per­sonal trans­porta­tion, sporting events, public build­ings, etc. Local police forces will be sub­ju­gated to mil­i­tary or fed­eral authority.

Gun Con­trol — Buy them while you can because Obama will be full out to ban gun own­er­ship, gun and ammu­ni­tion sales. Reuters reports that within hours of the elec­tion results “U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks.” Obama dropped this ini­tia­tive in July for fear of Repub­lican back­lash; now it’s back and run­ning at full speed.

Tech­noc­racy — Zbig­niew Brzezinski wrote in Between Two Ages that “Marxism rep­re­sents a fur­ther vital and cre­ative stage in the maturing of man’s uni­versal vision.” Note that it is not the end of man’s vision, but only a stage to go through. As a Marxist, Obama is using his unortho­doxy to move toward Tech­noc­racy in the U.S. and also glob­ally. In this sense, he is a “useful idiot” in the pro­mo­tion of Tech­noc­racy. Amer­ican polit­ical and eco­nomic thinkers are far behind the curve in under­standing this.

Smart Grid — Expect an all-out push to com­plete the national smart grid and to tie it together at the Depart­ment of Energy in Wash­ington, D.C. As green energy policy fab­ri­cates energy short­ages, the cry for con­ser­va­tion and a “national energy policy” will be deafening.

Per­sonal Pri­vacy — By 2016, nothing will be hidden from gov­ern­mental view, and no cit­izen (except the elite) will be exempt from total “on-demand” scrutiny. The imple­men­ta­tion of a national id card will be real­ized. Public sur­veil­lance and tracking will be per­va­sive. Mon­i­toring of all com­mu­ni­ca­tion (phone, com­puter, con­ver­sa­tions) will be fully implemented.

Tax increases — Expect them on every level. Obama is already con­sid­ering a “carbon tax” that will limit U.S. man­u­fac­turing and transportation.

U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion — It’s toast and we all know it, so we might as well just say it. The first four Obama years have trashed what­ever is left of a working Con­sti­tu­tion. It is clear that the Exec­u­tive Branch of the U.S. gov­ern­ment has broken free of the checks and bal­ances pro­vided in the Con­sti­tu­tion, and is now in an openly adver­sarial role with Amer­ican cit­i­zens. Obama will do what­ever he wants, with or without the approval of Congress.

Is there any­thing that can stop these well-defined polit­ical memes? No. Why not? Because the majority of voters (espe­cially the younger gen­er­a­tions) are not lit­erate enough to even under­stand these issues, much less resist them.

The odds are high that one of Obama’s past, present or future scan­dals could get him impeached before 2016. How­ever, be careful what you wish for: Obama’s depar­ture would pro­mote the master-of-jabberwocky Joe Biden to the presidency.

The Radical Polarization of Law Enforcement

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

by Patrick Wood, Editor
March 18, 2009

Patriots, Chris­tians and con­cerned cit­i­zens are increas­ingly in the cross hairs of the U.S. intel­li­gence com­mu­nity, and battle lines are being qui­etly drawn that could soon pit our own law enforce­ment and mil­i­tary forces against us.

A Feb­ruary 20 report enti­tled “The Modern Militia Move­ment” was issued by the Mis­souri Infor­ma­tion Analysis Center (MIAC) that paints main­stream patri­otic Amer­i­cans as dan­gerous threats to law enforce­ment and to the country. Oper­ating under the Mis­souri State Highway Patrol, the MIAC is listed as a Fusion Center that was estab­lished in coop­er­a­tion with the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity and the Depart­ment of Justice.

Because authen­ticity of the report was ques­tioned by some, this writer con­tacted Mis­souri state Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jim Guest (R-King City) who had per­son­ally ver­i­fied that the report had indeed been issued. Rep. Guest is chairman of the Per­sonal Pri­vacy Com­mittee and is a promi­nent leader in the national blow­back against the Real ID Act of 2005 that requires states to issue uni­form driver’s licenses con­taining per­sonal bio­metric data. (See Guest warns against Big Brother, Real ID)

Rep. Guest stated that he was “shocked and out­raged” at the report, which clearly paints him and many other elected state leaders, as a poten­tial threats to law enforcement.

Instead of focusing on actual crim­inal inci­dents of “home-grown” ter­rorism, the MAIC report instead lists issues that it believes are common to the threats it per­ceives. Thus, Amer­i­cans involved with the fol­lowing issues are highly suspect:

– “Ammu­ni­tion Account­ability Act” — requiring each bullet to to be seri­al­ized and reg­is­tered to the purchaser.

– “Antic­i­pa­tion of the eco­nomic col­lapse of the US Gov­ern­ment” - Promi­nent scholars and econ­o­mists are openly debating the bank­ruptcy and insol­vency of the United States government.

– “Pos­sible Con­sti­tu­tional Con­ven­tion (Con Con)” — 32 states have called for a Con­sti­tu­tional Con­ven­tion to force Con­gress and the Exec­u­tive Branch into a bal­anced budget, but many are con­cerned that if called, Con Con would be taken over by hos­tile inter­ests who would intro­duce Amend­ments that are harmful to national sovereignty.

– “North Amer­ican Union” — MIAC states that “Con­spiracy the­o­rists claim that this union would link Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The NAU would unify its mon­e­tary system and trade the dollar for the AMERO. Asso­ci­ated with this theory is con­cern over a NAFTA Super­highway, which would fast track trade between the three nations. There is addi­tional con­cern that the NAU would open up the border causing secu­rity risks and free move­ment for immigrants.”

– “Uni­versal Ser­vice Pro­gram” — “State­ments made by Pres­i­dent Elect Obama and his chief of staff have led extrem­ists to fear the cre­ation of a Civilian Defense Force. This theory requires all cit­i­zens between the age of 18 and 25 to be forced to attend three months of manda­tory training.” (This is exactly what Obama and Rahm Emmanuel have repeat­edly stated on national TV, and thus is hardly a theory.)

– “Radio Fre­quency Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (RFID)” — This includes human implan­ta­tion, but the larger con­cern is uni­versal id cards and per­sonal prop­erty iden­ti­fi­ca­tion that can be read elec­tron­i­cally without the bearer’s knowledge.

Cit­i­zens who are con­cerned about the above issues are then lumped into rad­ical ide­olo­gies such as Chris­tian Iden­tity, White Nation­al­ists (e.g., neo-Nazi, Skin­heads, etc.) and anti-Semites. Tax Resisters and Anti-Immigration advo­cates are thrown into the same category.

The MIAC report then sternly warns law enforce­ment personnel,

You are the Enemy: The militia sub­scribes to an antigov­ern­ment and NWO mind set, which cre­ates a threat to law enforce­ment offi­cers. They view the mil­i­tary, National Guard, and law enforce­ment as a force that will con­fis­cate their firearms and place them in FEMA con­cen­tra­tion camps.” [Bold emphasis appears in original]

On the last page of the MIAC report, a sec­tion listing Polit­ical Para­pher­nalia (flags and sym­bols) states,

“Militia mem­bers most com­monly asso­ciate with 3rd party polit­ical groups. It is not uncommon for militia mem­bers to dis­play Con­sti­tu­tional Party, Cam­paign for Lib­erty, or Lib­er­tarian mate­rial. These mem­bers are usu­ally sup­porters of former Pres­i­den­tial Can­di­date: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.

Militia mem­bers com­monly dis­play pic­ture, car­toons, bumper stickers that con­tain anti-government rhetoric. Most of this mate­rial will depict the FRS, IRS, FBI, ATF, CIA, UN, Law Enforce­ment, and the ‘New World Order’ in a deroga­tory manor (sic). Addi­tion­ally, Racial, anti-immigration, and anti-abortion, mate­rial may be dis­played by militia members.”

What was the osten­sible gen­esis of all these “threats” to law enforce­ment? The report explains it this way…

“Aca­d­e­mics con­tend that female and minority empow­er­ment in the 1970s and 1960s caused a blow to white male’s sense of empow­er­ment. This, com­bined with a sense of defeat from the Vietnam War, increased levels of immi­gra­tion, and unem­ploy­ment, spawned a para­mil­i­tary cul­ture. This caught on in the 1980’s with injects such as Tom Clancy novels, Solder of For­tune Mag­a­zine, and movies such as Rambo that glo­ri­fied combat. This cul­ture glo­ri­fied white males and por­trayed them as morally upright heroes who were men­tally and phys­i­cally tough.

“It was during this time­frame that many indi­vid­uals and orga­ni­za­tions began to con­coct con­spiracy the­o­ries to explain their mis­for­tunes. These the­o­ries varied but almost always involved a glob­alist dic­ta­tor­ship the“New World Order (NWO), which con­spired to exploit the working class citizens.”

In other words, these “ridicu­lous NWO the­o­ries” were cre­ated by psy­cho­log­ical deviants who were trying to jus­tify their own self-induced misfortunes.

Fear ye, all troopers

For unsus­pecting law enforce­ment per­sonnel, this MIAC training doc­u­ment polar­izes unsus­pecting offi­cers to fear peaceful, law-abiding cit­i­zens and greatly increases the risk of armed con­fronta­tion. For instance, a rou­tine traffic stop would be esca­lated if the officer observes a Ron Paul or Chuck Baldwin bumper sticker on the rear bumper of the car. The mere pos­ses­sion of printed mate­rial such as the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion or Bill of Rights would be viewed as sub­ver­sive, even though most offi­cers are required to take an oath to “defend and uphold the Con­sti­tu­tion of the United States” as a con­di­tion of their employment.

Addi­tion­ally, troopers are indoc­tri­nated that all such topics are pure fan­tasy and without any fac­tual basis. Even if they had their own con­cerns, they would be ridiculed into accepting the posi­tion that all crit­i­cism of the New World Order is dan­gerous to their well being.

The Columbia Daily Tri­bune (Columbia, Mis­souri) reports this con­cern from local res­i­dent Tim Neal, who appar­ently fits the MIAC’s “Modern Militia” profile:

“If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specif­i­cally iden­ti­fied as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is prob­ably going to be pretty appre­hen­sive and not thinking in a rational manner, and this guy’s walking up to my vehicle with a gun.” [see ‘Fusion Center’ draws fire over asser­tions]

MIAC is a Fusion Center

As men­tioned above, the Mis­souri Infor­ma­tion Analysis Center is one of a net­work of over 50 Fusion Cen­ters around the country.

According to the National Crim­inal Intel­li­gence Resource Center (NCIRC), a Fusion Center is “a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort of two or more agen­cies that pro­vide resources, exper­tise, and/or infor­ma­tion to the center with the goal of max­i­mizing the ability to detect, pre­vent, appre­hend, and respond to crim­inal and ter­rorist activity.”

As of 2006, the NCIRC listed 50 Fusion Cen­ters in var­ious states.

Most impor­tantly, the Depart­ment of Jus­tice and the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity are the dri­ving forces behind Fusion Cen­ters, having pub­lished “Fusion Center Guide­lines: Devel­oping and Sharing Infor­ma­tion and Intel­li­gence in a New World.” This report head­lines “Fusion” as “Turning Infor­ma­tion and Intel­li­gence Into Action­able Knowledge.”

Fusion Cen­ters are one of five areas of infor­ma­tion sharing under the Infor­ma­tion Sharing Envi­ron­ment (ISE) that was estab­lished by the Intel­li­gence Reform and Ter­rorism Pre­ven­tion Act of 2004.

ISE mem­ber­ship includes the Depart­ment of Com­merce, CIA, Depart­ment of Defense, Director of National Intel­li­gence, Depart­ment of Energy, FBI, Health and Human Ser­vices, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity, National Counter-Terrorism Center, Depart­ment of Inte­rior, Office of Man­age­ment and Budget, Depart­ment of Jus­tice, Depart­ment of State, Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion and the Depart­ment of Treasury.

According to one white paper (on the ISE web site) enti­tled The Intel­li­gence Fusion Process for State, Local and Tribal Law Enforce­ment, “The most impor­tant output of the intel­li­gence Fusion Center is action­able intel­li­gence. This means that the intel­li­gence pro­duced by the center will drive oper­a­tional responses and strategic aware­ness of threats.” Accordingly,

“The heart of good intel­li­gence analysis is to have a diverse array of valid and reli­able raw infor­ma­tion for analysis. The more robust the raw infor­ma­tion, the more accu­rate the ana­lytic output (i.e., intel­li­gence) will be.”

The above men­tioned MIAC report, issued by an offi­cial Fusion Center, is appar­ently part of this “diverse array of valid and reli­able raw information.”

How­ever, ISE’s under­standing of intel­li­gence is foolish. Any intel­li­gence ana­lyst knows that so-called raw infor­ma­tion is treated as garbage until ver­i­fied from mul­tiple sources to val­i­date accu­racy, com­plete­ness and freedom from bias. Sec­ondly, ana­lytic output depends upon trained and expe­ri­enced human rea­soning and judg­ment, not on the “robust­ness” of the raw infor­ma­tion itself.

Where do Fusion Cen­ters get inputs?

According to their own doc­u­ments, Fusion Cen­ters are “seeded” with ideas for analysis by the FBI and the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity. Although this is prob­lem­atic in itself, atten­tion is better directed to the left-wing non­profit orga­ni­za­tion, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

Upon careful word and theme com­par­ison between the MIAC report and SPLC lit­er­a­ture, it is apparent that there is a sig­nif­i­cant link between the two. Either MIAC received training or training mate­rial from SPLC or some of its per­sonnel had some pre­vious expo­sure to it.

The SPLC aggres­sively offers training to local, state and fed­eral law enforce­ment agen­cies. According to the SPLC web site, “We focus on the his­tory, back­ground, leaders and activ­i­ties of far-right extrem­ists in the U.S.” and states that it “is inter­na­tion­ally known for its tol­er­ance edu­ca­tion pro­grams, its legal vic­to­ries against white suprema­cists and its tracking of hate groups.”

Hate crimes are essen­tially acts of vil­i­fi­ca­tion of a victim because of his or her mem­ber­ship in a cer­tain social group, such as racial, reli­gious, sexual ori­en­ta­tion, nation­ality, gender, etc. While hate crimes are wrong under any cir­cum­stance, the SPLC sees no con­flict in pro­filing con­ser­v­a­tive whites, Chris­tians, Con­sti­tu­tion­al­ists, and patriots as being asso­ci­ated with, if not respon­sible for, hate crimes in America. This is the pot calling the kettle black.

For instance, con­sider the SPLC state­ment, “…a basic fact about all three move­ments: Patriots, white suprema­cists and anti-abortion mil­i­tants are all fueled by inter­pre­ta­tions of religion.”

Aside from the fact that this sweeping gen­er­al­iza­tion is plainly not true, it is mud-slinging at its best: Patriots are lumped in with white suprema­cists, anti-abortionists are mil­i­tants, and all are driven by an obvi­ously irra­tional and fanat­ical appli­ca­tion of religion.

In another SPLC article about a tragic killing in South Car­olina, enti­tled “The Abbeville Horror”, the writer goes well beyond just the facts of the story and is careful to sprinkle in words and phrases such as:

Patriots, tax pro­tes­tors, sov­er­eign cit­i­zens, antigov­ern­ment extrem­ists, New World Order para­noia, Dis­arming U.S. Cit­i­zens, hard-line Chris­tian Right, con­sti­tu­tional rights, antigov­ern­ment “Patriot” lit­er­a­ture, anti-Semitic con­spiracy, “Live Free or Die,” Ruby Ridge and Waco, Second Amend­ment, extremist orga­nizing, “closet extrem­ists,” para­noid beliefs, “Give me lib­erty or give me death.” [quotes appear in orig­inal text]

These are the same kinds of words and themes that are seen in The Modern Militia Move­ment article, where dis­tinc­tions between good and bad people are blurred and con­fused: All are guilty by asso­ci­a­tion, if nothing else.

Should a pri­vate orga­ni­za­tion like SPLC be allowed to pro­vide offi­cial training to public-entrusted law enforce­ment agen­cies? Most would say, “No.” Even if the training was free, the agency should reject influ­ence from the public sector, and even more so if it presents biased and one-sided infor­ma­tion that is claimed to be factual.


It is crit­ical to under­stand that the legit­i­mate law enforce­ment agen­cies of cities, coun­ties and states are not adver­saries of the people. They are greatly needed for pro­tec­tion against crime and for keeping order in our communities.

They are, how­ever, being method­i­cally seeded with very wrong­headed and dan­gerous infor­ma­tion, the spe­cific intent of which is to polarize law enforce­ment against peaceful cit­i­zens who simply care about the down­fall of their country.

This writer inter­viewed Chuck Baldwin and asked about how he felt when he first saw his good name asso­ci­ated with those who would threaten bodily harm to law enforce­ment agen­cies. “Per­son­ally, I was stunned,” he said, “but my family has taken this very per­son­ally as well. This is more than disturbing.”

When asked about the pos­sible affect of the report on the Con­sti­tu­tion Party, of which he was the 2008 pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, he replied, “I think it will gal­va­nize people and help them to under­stand the nature of the battle we are in. Freedom must be defended.”

In fact, the MIAC report has cre­ated a firestorm all over America. Tens of thou­sands of protests are being called, written, emailed and faxed to author­i­ties and leg­is­la­tors in Mis­souri. It would not be sur­prising to see the report rescinded and an apology given.

Even so, behind-the-scene groups like the SPLC will con­tinue unabated and unde­terred in their effort to mis­in­form and dis­rupt healthy com­mu­nity rela­tions with worthy law enforce­ment agen­cies and personnel.

The mes­sage to every juris­dic­tion: Don’t let it happen!

Final thought

Locate the Fusion Center in your state and keep a close eye on the infor­ma­tion they are releasing. Stay close to as many law enforce­ment per­sonnel as you can, asking them to keep their eyes open for reports sim­ilar to the Mis­souri report. Peti­tion your state leg­is­la­tors to ban law enforce­ment training by pri­vate orga­ni­za­tions such as the Southern Poverty Law Center.

What is Globalization?

It is the col­lective effect of pur­poseful and amoral manip­u­la­tion that seeks to cen­tralize eco­nomic, polit­ical, tech­no­log­ical and soci­etal forces in order to accrue max­imum profit and polit­ical power to global banks, global cor­po­ra­tions and the elit­ists who run them. It is rapidly moving toward an full and final imple­men­ta­tion of Technocracy.

What is the Tri­lat­eral Commission?

Founded in 1973 by David Rock­e­feller and Zbig­niew Brzezinski, the Com­mis­sion set out to create a “New Inter­na­tional Eco­nomic Order”, namely, Tech­noc­racy. The orig­inal mem­ber­ship con­sisted of elit­ists (bankers, politi­cians, aca­d­e­mics, indus­tri­al­ists) from Japan, North America and Europe. Col­lec­tively, they have dom­i­nated and con­trolled trade and eco­nomic policy in their respec­tive coun­tries since at least 1974.

What is Technocracy?

Tech­noc­racy is a move­ment started in the 1930’s by engi­neers, sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians that pro­posed the replace­ment of cap­i­talism with an energy-based economy. Orig­i­nally envi­sioned for North America only, it is now being applied on a global basis. Authors Aldous Huxley and George Orwell believed that Tech­noc­racy would result in a Sci­en­tific Dic­ta­tor­ship, as reflected in their books, “Brave New World” and “1984″.

Is the Venus Project like Technocracy?

The Venus Project, founded by Jacque Fresco, is a utopian, modern-day iter­a­tion of Tech­noc­racy. Like Tech­noc­racy, it scraps cap­i­talism and pro­poses that “a resource-based economy all of the world’s resources are held as the common her­itage of all of Earth’s people, thus even­tu­ally out­growing the need for the arti­fi­cial bound­aries that sep­a­rate people.” The appli­ca­tion of tech­nology is the answer to all of the world’s prob­lems, including war, famine and poverty.
