Total Economic Slavery

Total Economic Slavery

God gave man gold and silver to use as a system of honest weights and measures and as a method for man to store their wealth. Both of these gifts that god gave us have been able to retain their purchasing power for thousands of years. Satan on the other hand gave bankers paper money and fractional reserve banking as a method for men who issue the money to steal wealth from other men. All of the Western central banks are guilty of using fiat money to control governments and people through modern day financial slavery. If we lived in a sane world, all central banking institutions like the Federal Reserve would be abolished.
The main problem with fiat money is the fact that around the world central banks disguising themselves as government entities are issuing currency and not the government itself. As a result of this, a private central bank like the Federal Reserve has been given a monopoly on creating credit. This grants the Federal Reserve the power to create credit out of thin air which they use to buy government bonds at which the government owes interest on. The Federal Reserve through their credit creation powers has been able to exercise total control over the United States government by putting it into debt through manipulating the open bond markets. They buy more bonds to increase the amount of money banks can lend and sell bonds to decrease the amount of money banks can lend. Even more ridiculous is the fact that decisions on buying and selling government bonds on the open market are decided upon in secret meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee or FOMC. All the public learns of these secret meetings are minutes of these meetings far after the meeting takes place. Make no mistake about it, the Federal Reserve and its policies are the primary reason why the United States government has a multi-trillion dollar debt. It is also why the government imposes unfair and unjust taxes upon the American people because the government continually requires an additional source of income to pay interest on the debt.
Even more ridiculous is the fact that banks are legally given the authority to lend out ten times the amount of credit they have on the books. In turn, the banks charge interest on these loans to the borrowers. Incredibly, the banks are legally able to loan out money they don’t even have. These fraudulent practices debase the purchasing power of the currency because there are no real constraints on credit creation. Proof of this can be seen with the purchasing power of Federal Reserve Notes which has decreased over 95% since the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913.
This sort of corrupt monetary system only benefits the elite few at the top who run it and enslaves the rest of us. Through inflation, unfair taxes and corrupt lending practices, average Americans become enslaved to a satanic system of debt instruments. Amazingly the general public remains oblivious about how money is created and the institutions behind it. This is because the failed government run education system intentionally does not teach children how the monetary system actually works. Of course most adults don’t even know how the monetary system even works, so I guess it would be a stretch to teach children about it. The reason for this is because the mainstream media outlets of today do not talk about the blatant frauds of the Federal Reserve. In actuality, the media outlets themselves have been bought out by the banking interests a long time ago. There really is no independent mainstream media in the United States. NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News and the big newspapers are all controlled by big banking interests through holding shares in the media’s parent companies. As a result, you will never see anything substantively negative about the banking industry or the Federal Reserve on the mainstream media. If they were really independent why is it that every mainstream media outlet uses oil companies as a scapegoat for high gasoline prices? Why aren’t they questioning the Federal Reserve and their long standing policy of debasing the value of the currency? When was the last time an editorial piece was broadcast criticizing lending policies of banks? For the amount of time that CNBC spends trying to analyze what Ben Bernake and the Federal Reserve is going to do with interest rates, you would think they would at least have one analyst or commentator that would question the very system being analyzed. It is as if they want us to believe that if we didn’t have the Federal Reserve, the entire economic system would cease to function. This is of course a lie.
Following the abolishment of the Second Bank of the United States by Andrew Jackson in the 1830's, the United States experienced unprecedented economic prosperity with no operating central bank. Free from the shackles of a private central bank in the mid 1800’s, the United States rapidly expanded westward as the industrial revolution began. Jackson was also able to pay off the national debt in its entirety. Even before Jackson’s time the American Colonies were equally as prosperous without a central bank through its issuance of Colonial Scrip. Even though the Colonial Scrip was not backed by silver, gold or anything else, the currency was created interest free, away from the manipulation of bankers. Additional currency was issued only as economic growth required thus allowing control over its purchasing power.
All of the problems that the Federal Reserve creates could be eliminated entirely if the U.S. government were to issue U.S. Notes. Currently, our money is issued in the form of Federal Reserve Notes which makes the U.S. government a borrower to the private bank. If the U.S. Treasury issued U.S. Notes and we abolished the Federal Reserve, this money would be created interest free and would allow the government to pay off all of its debt. People would no longer need to be burdened with unjust taxes in order for the government to pay bankers interest on a debt that they created out of thin air in the first place.
All the U.S. Treasury would need to do is appropriately determine how many additional Notes to print as to avoid both deflationary and inflationary scenarios. A good way to do this would be for the U.S. Treasury to issue U.S. Notes backed entirely by silver bullion. These would essentially be silver certificates. Additional silver certificates would only be issued by the Treasury upon the receipt of additional silver bullion. At all times, the amount of silver certificates in circulation would be equivalent to the total amount of silver bullion on hand at the Treasury. Bearers of the silver certificates could remit their Certificates for ounces of silver on demand. This would effectively eliminate any inflation from the financial system because the paper would be a coupon for a known fixed asset.
On top of this a 100% reserve requirement ratio should be required for banks and any other individual or institution to lend money. In addition, all government issued debt instruments like government bonds should be retired. Accomplishing both of these things would eliminate unconstrained credit creation that is devaluing our currency and bankrupting our country. Banks would lend money to prospective home owners and entrepreneurs not to enslave them to debt, but as an investment opportunity for the bank.
The U.S. government should also begin re-issuing gold and silver coinage as was provided in the Coinage Act of 1792. The Coinage Act of 1792 specifically describes two forms of coinage which are the Dollar and the Eagle. Contrary to popular belief the Federal Reserve Notes that currently circulate are not Dollars. The Dollar is actually a silver piece. The Federal Reserve refers to Federal Reserve Notes as Dollars as part of the PR campaign to deceive the American people. In order to restore the Dollar as was initially intended for today’s purposes I would propose that the U.S. Mint should begin issuing one ounce silver coins with the face value of one U.S. Dollar. Additionally, the U.S. Mint should also issue one ounce gold coins with the face value of one U.S. Eagle. The free market could dictate the appropriate ratio between how many Dollars would be equivalent to an Eagle. Since the supply and demand for gold and silver is dynamic, what better way to decide the ratio between them than the free market itself?
Even though these proposals might not encompass the perfect solution, it would at the very least ensure an honest system of weights and measures. Unfortunately, since we live in a world gone mad getting these sensible changes put into place will probably never happen. Almost all government officials are either too scared, corrupt or ignorant to act and move forward on any permanent changes against the Federal Reserve and its cartel of banks. In fact, most government officials are actually conspirators supporting to keep the power base of the Federal Reserve intact by producing misleading information that supports Federal Reserve policies. Many government economic statistics are produced to mislead the public into thinking things are better than they are. One example of this is the core inflation statistic which does not include food or energy in the computation. I'm sure this statistic would be great if none of us ate food or drove automobiles but how many of us don't eat food or drive automobiles? It is amazing that this statistic is consistently referred to by CNBC analysts and commentators whenever they discuss inflation. Considering it is such a poor indication of what's really going on, why would these people continue to refer to it? The answer is actually as sad as it is simple. Since the Federal Reserve can make as much money as they want for themselves they can buy off media outlets, politicians, government officials, judges and anyone else they want. Therefore almost everything you see on CNBC is the officially approved economic spin of the Federal Reserve.
When you consider that we have an institution of unelected officials running the nation’s monetary policy and government for that matter, why should we trust the money that they print when it isn’t backed by anything and issued for the interest of the banks? Not only is the currency they create a fraud, but they actually have the power to intentionally create an economic crisis by suppressing the supply of money in order to increase their wealth by putting their money into suitable investment vehicles ahead of an engineered collapse. Many believe, myself included that the Federal Reserve engineered and facilitated the stock market crash of 1929 as well as the great depression of the 1930’s by intentionally contracting the money supply. Only after Franklin Roosevelt became President in 1932 did the Federal Reserve begin to increase the money supply and allow the economy to recover. This was done at the same time that FDR brought forth the New Deal and expanded the size of the United States government. The Federal Reserve wanted people to think that FDR and the big government programs were behind the economic recovery. They also used the deflationary environment to confiscate the people's gold under the story that it would be used to strengthen the nation's currency. By doing this, the Federal Reserve expanded its power by profiting from the economic hardship, stealing the people's gold and expanding central government power.
Let's look at FDR's gold confiscation. Executive order 6102 by FDR in 1933 made gold ownership of any significance illegal and forced people to turn over the gold they had into the Federal Reserve. In exchange, people were issued Federal Reserve Notes. This was a scam facilitated by the banking cartel to gain complete control over the nation’s gold. Not everyone bought into the program and it is estimated that they only were able to steal half of the people's gold. All of the stolen gold was melted down and shipped off to Fort Knox. At the time, Federal Reserve Notes were still backed by gold, but this confiscation stopped all domestic redemption and limited gold redemption of the currency to foreigners. This came to an end in 1971 when Nixon stopped allowing foreign redemption for gold. The reason Nixon was forced to do this was because foreigners realized that the Federal Reserve printed more paper than there was physical gold. The foreigners started turning in the paper for the gold and Nixon was eventually forced to prevent a run on our gold by putting an end to foreign redemption. Since that point in time, our currency has literally been based off of nothing.
The bottom line is this. We are dealing with a fraudulent paper money system that could bankrupt us all at the whim of the corrupt and evil people running it. These people have clearly lost their souls and have been corrupted by the absolute power of unlimited currency creation. The Bible says that those who own gold and silver will be blessed and it is truly the best way to protect your wealth from any future monetary madness the Federal Reserve and other central banks will bring upon us. Buy physical gold and silver bullion and stick it in a safe or bury it in the ground somewhere. Ownership of either metal will protect individuals from whatever deflationary or inflationary scenario these evil people are planning to bring upon us.

CFR's Calls for Regional Currencies is a Fraud

CFR's Calls for Regional Currencies is a Fraud

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) recently published an essay from Benn Steil titled “The End of National Currency.” In his essay Steil advocates the implementation of multinational currencies and for nations to abandon unwanted currencies. Steil asserts that globalization is a good thing and that multinational currencies would be more compatible with globalization. Although I do agree that multinational currencies would be more compatible with globalization, the very concept of globalization is horrible and is being used to consolidate power and wealth in the hands of the few. Globalization must be resisted and Steil’s promotion of globalization and multinational currencies is based strictly on the fact that it would benefit the few people at the top and help create a New World Order.
Below is the summary of Steil’s article that can be found at this link.
The End of National Currency
http://www.foreignaffairs.org/20070501faessay86308/benn-steil/the-end-of-national-currency.html

Summary: Global financial instability has sparked a surge in "monetary nationalism" -- the idea that countries must make and control their own currencies. But globalization and monetary nationalism are a dangerous combination, a cause of financial crises and geopolitical tension. The world needs to abandon unwanted currencies, replacing them with dollars, euros, and multinational currencies as yet unborn.
Steil is obviously incredibly enthusiastic about spreading lies and misinformation that will help further globalization. His conclusion that the world needs to abandon national currencies and replace them with multinational or regional currencies is a fraudulent solution to financial crises and geopolitical tension.
Let’s look at what really causes global financial instability. Global financial instability is caused by the fact that money is currently created out of thin air by the central banking system of each country. The central banking system and their use of fiat currencies is the cause of all financial instability. Monetary systems backed by gold or silver do not suffer from financial instability as it eliminates the possibility of institutions manipulating currencies for their own political gain. The United States in the 19th century was a perfect example of how people prospered as the result of an honest money system. People were able to work and save money and didn’t have to worry about the fact that their savings was getting eaten away by a hidden inflation tax that today’s central banks force on people. Every fiat currency in the history of mankind has eventually failed. That is a historical fact. Gold and silver have survived as money for thousands of years. It is misleading for Steil to conclude that globalization and monetary nationalism are a cause of financial crises and geopolitical tension. Financial crises are caused by the manipulation of fiat currencies and geopolitical tensions are often caused by institutions waging war through their use of fiat currencies. No individual or group of individuals should have the power to create money out of thin air. A stable monetary system backed by gold or silver is a real solution that would eliminate both of these problems that Steil talks about. If the CFR wants regional or one world currencies, they should eliminate the banking system entirely and return to a solution based around gold and silver. Gold and silver takes effort to dig out of the earth and guarantees that no single group of people have god like control over the monetary system. Of course, the CFR will never suggest a real solution like this being a think tank funded by the Rockefeller family.
It is clear that establishing multinational fiat currencies as Steil advocates is a terrible idea on many fronts. The main reason it is a terrible idea is because it consolidates power in the hands of fewer people. Those few people who have the ability to create the money for particular global regions wield power over everyone else in that region. They can buy off government officials, crash economies and create all sorts of havoc. The phrase “power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely” is a perfect description as to why no group of individuals should have the ability to control fiat currencies. National fiat currencies are bad enough but multinational fiat currencies are even worse and would mean that a group of unelected bankers and empty suits would control monetary policy over several countries. Through their control of fiat currency these individuals control the destiny of the governments and nations they create the money for. We have this very situation with the European Union and we can already see how the EU has eroded the national sovereignty of its member nations.
Steil also advocates that nations should replace national currencies with the Dollar or Euro and believes that Asia should produce a new multinational currency. There have even been calls from others to implement a North American regional currency called the Amero to replace the Dollar. If Steil’s recommendations are implemented, the world would have a total of three entirely fiat currencies that can be manipulated at the will of the bankers and empty suits that control them. This would ensure a more rapid implementation of globalization that will be used to enslave the world’s populations into the New World Order. Steil appears to assert that globalization is a good thing when it is anything but a good thing. Globalization is only good for the multinational corporations and government bureaucrats at the top of the food chain.

Of course by making these arguments, I am making the ridiculous assertion that the Council on Foreign Relations and their minions like Steil who write this garbage are actually trying to come up with ways to help the average person. The CFR and its members do not care about the average person. The CFR is an organization of traitors that over the past 80+ years have committed treason against the United States through its continued advocacy of globalization and elimination of national sovereignty. Robert Pastor’s push for a North American Union is the latest in what has been a history of treason that the CFR has perpetuated against the American people.
The fact that the CFR is calling for the elimination of national currencies is an ominous sign that the globalization crowd is really starting to push forward with their agenda for a New World Order. Multinational currencies are a fraudulent solution to financial crises. The dollar is already on the brink of a meltdown and it is quite possible that the establishment will cause a crash in the Dollar in order to sell us on these multinational currency frauds. This New World Order must be resisted by any means necessary or the United States will end up becoming a 3rd world banana republic.

Defeat the Coin Act of 2006

Defeat the Coin Act of 2006

BY: Lee Rogers
POSTED: 11-24-2006


http://www.funnymoneyreport.com/article_view.php?id=16


Over this past summer a bill was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives called the Currency Overhaul for an Industrious Nation. This bill is also referred to as the Coin Act of 2006 or House Resolution 5818. Introduced by Representative Jim Kolbe from Arizona the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Domestic and International Monetary Policy, Trade, and Technology this past August. The purpose of the bill according to the text of the bill itself is to modernize the legal tender of the United States, and for other purposes. The mainstream media has sold this bill to the American people as legislation that will move to get rid of the penny. Even though that is one of the proposals included in the bill, there are much more significant things in the bill which makes me dead set against it. I hope this bill gets defeated because it further increases the power of the Federal Reserve.
Full Text: Coin Act of 2006 (HR 5818)
http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.R.5818.IH:

Jim Kolbe's Press Release on Coin Act of 2006
First, let’s address the media hype around the penny situation. In Section 3 of this bill, a system is proposed for rounding cash transactions so if a transaction sum ends with 1, 2, 6 or 7 cents as the final digit the total sum will be rounded down to the nearest amount divisible by 5. The total sum will be rounded up to the nearest amount divisible by 5 if a cash transaction sum ends with 3, 4, 8 or 9 cents. This would effectively eliminate the use for the penny. But realistically, there is no need to get rid of the penny if we examine why the penny is in the situation it is today. Currently the melt value of copper and zinc pennies are worth more than the actual face value of the coins. A sure fire sign of inflation is when the melt value of coins becomes worth more than the face value. Right now, pennies and nickels both fall under that category. This bill is proposing to get rid of the penny because of inflation which is a totally backwards way of solving the problem. What they should be doing is getting rid of what’s causing the inflation which is the corrupt Federal Reserve that devalues our currency by creating an untold excess of Federal Reserve Notes out of thin air. Once the Federal Reserve is eliminated, the U.S. Treasury could print their own U.S. Notes backed 100% by gold or silver bullion. A return to honest money where U.S. Dollars represent silver and U.S. Eagles represent gold would ensure that there are no inflation problems. This money would be created interest free for the benefit of the American people. With no inflation, you wouldn’t have to get rid of the penny because the melt value would never exceed the face value. A penny would be worth whatever its melt value is and would be traded based off of fair free market principles driven by an honest money system.
Now that we’ve proposed a better solution that would enable us to keep the penny, let’s look at what this bill is really all about. It is about providing the Federal Reserve with even more power by transferring two important institutions from control of the U.S. Treasury to control of the Federal Reserve. Section 8 of this bill transfers the United States Mint and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing from control of the U.S. Treasury to control of the Federal Reserve Board. I can’t begin to even describe how terrible I think this is. These are the two government institutions that are responsible for creating and printing the actual money. The U.S. Mint makes all coinage for this country and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing prints Federal Reserve Notes, U.S. passports, Treasury securities and other security documents. With these two institutions under the direct operational control of the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve has even greater control over the entire U.S. monetary system. The Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel and is not accountable to the people. They hold a couple of dog and pony shows each year with the Federal Reserve Chairman testifying in front of Congress to make the people think that the Federal Reserve is accountable to them. The Federal Reserve however is not accountable to anyone in the government and they do whatever they want. The Federal Reserve Chairman is actually nominated by the President from a list of candidates prepared in advance by the banking cartel themselves. The whole approval process is nothing more than staged theatrics to make the American public buy into all of this craziness. If the Federal Reserve Chairman were actually accountable to the people, why isn’t the Federal Reserve Chairman a cabinet level position that reports directly to the President? This very reason is why all powers of monetary creation should rest with the U.S. Treasury.
Abraham Lincoln had the U.S. Treasury print “Greenbacks” to fund the Union Army in the Civil War. Approximately 100 years later, John F. Kennedy signed an executive order to have the U.S. Treasury print U.S. Notes. With the actual government entities that physically create and print the money being put under control of the Federal Reserve, it could very well make it impossible for any future U.S. President to do what Lincoln and Kennedy did. With the Bureau of Engraving and Printing no longer under control of the government, I question if the government barring the elimination of the Federal Reserve would be able to again provide the American people with honest currency like the “Greenbacks” and U.S. Notes.
The implications of the U.S. Mint being put in the hands of the banking cartel is another major problem. If the Federal Reserve gets control of it, I wonder how long it will take before they order a stop to the production of collectible U.S. gold coins. Or for that matter, how long would it take for them to eliminate the production of all U.S. coins? Obviously if rampant inflation continues, we will either see a change in the composition of the coins or an elimination of them.
Regarding coin composition changes, this bill also has a plan to look into just that. Section 6 of this bill calls for the Comptroller General to conduct a study on the feasibility, practicality and cost effectiveness of using alternative metal compositions for circulating U.S. coins. All this is saying is that the face value of every U.S. coin in circulation will become worth less than the melt value and that they need to change the composition of the coinage into something less valuable. The Comptroller General is simply going to provide analysis and suggestions as to what the coin composition should be. This is essentially preparation for a repeat of what happened to U.S. minted silver coins in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Personally, I take all of the pocket change I get and throw it into a big bucket. I believe some day, that the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters that circulate today will eventually be much more valuable than their current face value. If you want to get really crazy, go to a bank and ask them to exchange your worthless Federal Reserve Notes for a bunch of nickels. It is a risk free investment since the melt value of U.S. minted nickels is currently worth 138% more than its face value.

Coinflation.Com - Melt Value of U.S. Coins
http://www.coinflation.com/

The bill also calls for the replacement of $1 Federal Reserve Notes with $1 coins as well as a redesign of the commemorative $2 Federal Reserve Note. Still think the money changers are being tough on inflation? If so, why is this bill proposing the $1 Federal Reserve Note being phased out in favor of a $2 Federal Reserve Note and a $1 coin? If they were tough on inflation there’d be no need to phase out a smaller unit note for a larger unit note.
The bottom line is this, the U.S. Mint and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing perform Constitutional functions of the U.S. government. These powers should not be transferred to the Federal Reserve. It is bad enough that this institution has been given a private monopoly on printing our currency. If this bill passes and gets signed by the President, the Federal Reserve will also be given a private monopoly on making our coins and even printing our Treasury securities. This bill takes away power from the U.S. Treasury and gives it to a private banking cartel. They will probably say that this bill will eliminate bureaucracy and make government more efficient but I strongly disagree. Money creation is one of the few Constitutional functions of the U.S. government. Any deviation from our government having complete control over our monetary system makes government less efficient. The Federal Reserve has already turned the American people and our government into slaves of a never ending debt cycle because the power of currency issuance was given to them. They’ve bought off both the Republican and Democrat parties. I’m all for small government but let’s look at eliminating the government institutions that do not perform any Constitutional functions before doing something like this.
I sincerely hope this bill gets defeated. Please tell your elected officials that the Federal Reserve should be abolished and not the penny. At least the good news is that with all of this financial madness surrounding us it is easy to know where to put your money. My portfolio of gold and silver stocks have been performing very well this past week with the recent upswing in both metals. I fully expect gold and silver to continue moving higher in the short term. I’ve also heard anecdotal evidence that Platinum coins are becoming difficult to obtain. For those with some spare cash lying around, it might be a good idea to look into obtaining some.

Mint versus Liberty Dollar

Mint versus Liberty Dollar

BY: Lee Rogers
POSTED: 09-23-2006
http://www.funnymoneyreport.com/article_view.php?id=8

The U.S. Mint this past week declared that the use of the Liberty Dollar an alternative form of money created by a private mint is illegal. The full press release can be read on the U.S. Mint's offical web site which is linked to here. The Liberty Dollar is a silver backed alternative form of money privately minted as one ounce silver medallions with a $20 face value. For more information on the Liberty Dollar check out their web site here.
The fact that the U.S. Mint has declared the use of the Liberty Dollar illegal, in of itself shows how tyrannical the government has become over the people. There is a growing demand for gold and silver and the Liberty Dollar has come into existence because it fills a gap that the U.S. Mint and the Federal Reserve will not fill. The U.S. Mint offers one ounce gold coins with a face value of $50 and one ounce silver coins with a face value of $1 on it both for well over the current spot prices of both gold or silver. The Liberty Dollar is simply a much better purchase than anything the U.S. Mint offers with its $20 purchase price and $20 face value.
The U.S. Mint claims that Liberty Dollars are being passed off as full legal tender of the United States, which is incorrect. No where on the Liberty Dollar web site or on the coinage itself does it say that it is full legal tender of the United States. Additionally, they claim that the coinage is unconstitutional by incorrectly quoting the Constitution. They claim that the Constitution gives the U.S. Mint exclusive authority to make gold and silver coin. In reality, this is what the Constitution says.
The Congress shall have Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures."
- U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 8, clause 5
No where in that clause does it state that the U.S. Mint has the exclusive authority to coin gold and silver money. According to the Constitution, any private individual can create their own gold or silver coins if they so choose.
The government obviously sees the Liberty Dollar and other alternative forms of money as a threat to their power base. The U.S. Mint in their press release basically said that the people cannot voluntarily choose what they use to barter with. If somebody wants to use a Liberty Dollar to buy goods or services from another individual and the other individual agrees to it, what is the problem with it? Other than the threat to their power base, why would the government come out and declare the Liberty Dollar's use illegal? It would be more honest of them to say that we declare it illegal for people to perform transactions unless Federal Reserve Notes are used. That's what they really want and even further along the road make it illegal for people to make transactions without a chip implant. As scary as it is, we get closer to the biblical Mark of the Beast prophecy every day.
The bottom line is this, we should stick it to the Federal Reserve and our corrupt government officials by demanding an honest money system through our purchase of gold and silver. Even though I'd prefer to hold gold or silver bullion I might just buy some Liberty Dollars just to irritate the powers that be. I've seen them circulating around coin shows and silver is still silver regardless of what is put on them. What's funny is that the U.S. Mint coming out against the Liberty Dollar has actually increased traffic to the Liberty Dollar web site and their sales to go up. Regardless of what the government says I suspect that we'll see the Liberty Dollar and other alternative forms of money around for a little while.

A Must Read!: The Coming U.S. Currency Collapse & The Coming New World Order

The Coming U.S. Currency Collapse

BY: Lee Rogers
POSTED: 09-10-2006

Fiat currencies which are backed by nothing have all eventually gone to zero value. The fiat currencies of today are no different than previous incarnations of fiat currencies that were also backed by nothing. These frauds have historically been used by money changers in order to implement tyranny against the people. The Federal Reserve Note or U.S. Dollar is no different and has been an instrument of tyranny used by the Federal Reserve to steal wealth from the U.S. government and the American people. The Federal Reserve Note will eventually suffer the same fate as every other fiat currency and it is prudent to plan accordingly. If the the New World Order is to establish their one world cashless society grid as the Bible's prophecy states (Revelation 13:16 and 13:17), they will need to destroy our paper currency as a stepping stone to reach their ultimate goal.
The Federal Reserve Note has been in default since 1971 when Nixon shut off international redemption of the notes for gold. This almost resulted in the collapse of our currency in the late 1970's and early 1980's. In order to restore credibility to the currency, the Federal Reserve destroyed the economy by raising interest rates in the high teens. Since that point in time, the Federal Reserve primarily lead by Alan Greenspan has inflated our way out of economic problems. The only reason why our currency has not suffered a complete meltdown already is because of our agreement with OPEC to price oil in Federal Reserve Notes exclusively for all worldwide transactions. This policy has been strongly enforced through our military power. Prior to the invasion of Iraq, Sadaam Hussein stated that he only wanted to conduct oil transactions in the Euro. Despite all of the rhetoric coming out of the Bush administration about WMD's, UN Resolutions and other nonsense this was likely the main reason why our military paid them a visit. If Iraq conducted all of its oil transactions in the Euro this would have significantly weakened our currency. After our invasion Iraqi oil transactions quietly reverted back to Federal Reserve Notes.
Fast forward to today and we look at the current situation with Iran. It is no coincidence that all of the propaganda revolving around a potential war with Iran has to do with their proposed oil bourse. Iran's oil bourse will allow transactions for oil, petrochemicals and gas to take place with currencies like the Euro. The oil bourse is expected to be officially established later this month and is a real threat to U.S. currency. Here are a few links that provide more detail about the Iran oil bourse.

On top of that, Russia has expressed the desire to begin trading rubles for oil. Earlier this year Vladimir Putin had the following to say about the issue.
"The ruble must become a more widespread means of international transactions. To this end, we need to open a stock exchange in Russia to trade in oil, gas, and other goods to be paid for with rubles."
"Our goods are traded on global markets. Why are not they traded in Russia?"
Here are a few articles about the ruble based oil exchange.

Putin proposes creation of ruble-denominated oil, gas exchange

Venezuela has also gone on record stating that they want to begin trading oil in Euros instead of our Federal Reserve Notes. In 2001 there was an attempted coup against Hugo Chavez shortly after the Venezuelan government began discussing such proposals. Many believe that this was a CIA lead coup attempt against Chavez primarily because of his oil for Euro proposals. The fact that Chavez was a democratically elected leader was apparently not a concern for the CIA and our corrupt government officials. Today, Chavez is still considering making the move to conduct oil transactions in the Euro as is referenced in the below BBC article.

Venezuela may swap Oil Currency
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4990302.stm

If Iran, Russia and Venezuela all began accepting Euro's in exchange for oil this would create a severe problem for our currency. Other countries would be using other currencies to pay for oil and it would eliminate the need to hold as many Federal Reserve Notes. Our military will not be able to continue invading countries to enforce the oil transaction agreement we have with OPEC. As countries begin to move further and further away from U.S. currency, we will see it weaken even faster than it already has until it eventually collapses. I believe that the New World Order has been forced to speed up their globalization plans because of current and future currency problems. They need to get as much as they can out of the U.S. military to further their plans for a one world government while this financial pryamid scheme continues to float. Most likely they are going to inflate the U.S. currency until it eventually reaches no value and finally use the financial collapse as an excuse for a replacement regional or worldwide fiat currency.
After many years of being the world's reserve currency, we are at a point where Federal Reserve Notes are no longer accepted as such. The U.S. national debt is in the trillions, wages aren't keeping up with inflation, we have a huge housing bubble starting to implode, the bond market is in the toilet, countries no longer want our currency and our military is stretched all over the world trying to enforce the only policy that has kept our currency from collapsing. How can anyone with a straight face say that our economy is in great shape? Most American's have been forced to use all sorts of debt instruments in order to maintain their standard of living. We also see the government passing laws to create a nazi like police state in the United States. When our currency collapses, the government will need these police state powers that the Patriot Act and other initiatives provide to maintain order in this country. After all, when our currency reverts to zero value can you imagine how many angry upper class soccer Mom's the government will need to deal with?
In conclusion, it is of the utmost importance that you protect yourself against a future U.S. currency collapse. Regardless of how we see our currency destroyed, gold, silver and other tangible assets will retain their value. Gold has retained its value for over 4,000 years during all sorts of inflationary and deflationary scenarios. Amazingly, the majority of the propaganda artists on CNBC say gold is the risky investment and U.S. Treasury Bills are the safe haven investment of choice. It cannot be an accident that over the past few years we have seen gold, silver and oil based exchange traded funds become available to investors. I believe the banks have facilitated the establishment of these funds because they know what is to come and will use these as vehicles to preserve their wealth. I believe everyone should own physical gold and silver bullion as a financial insurance policy for what is to come. After all, what good is the FDIC if the currency itself experiences hyperinflation? You might be lucky if the $100,000 offered in the insurance policy will buy you a loaf of bread.

Ron Paul -- Lone Star

Ron Paul -- Lone Star

by Michael Brendan Dougherty

June 21, 2007


Maverick Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul finds that being right is the one thing his party won’t forgive.
At first glance, he looks like every other congressman in the Canon Building. His suit is dark. His tie is striped. He is convivial with his colleagues, who genuinely like him. But there is something different about Ron Paul.

You can hear congressmen when they walk down the hall, strutting their own importance. After all, there are regulations to be implemented, special interests to serve, a teetering American Empire that would collapse without their management. They wear black or cordovan leather shoes—captoes, wingtips, and brogues—clacking down the hall, their bellies full of medium-rare steak from Capital Grille. They are surrounded by ambitious interns and legislative aides. They fiddle with their BlackBerries. You can’t miss them tromping out of the elevators.
Ron Paul is easy to overlook. He takes the stairs; he does not have an entourage. You can’t hear him coming because he’s wearing plain black tennis shoes. In a bag he carries a can of soup that he will heat for himself in the microwave in his office. Beneath pictures of Austrian economists Frederick Von Hayek and Ludwig Von Mises, he will eat his lunch alone and in peace.
What is the purpose of Ron Paul’s candidacy for the presidency of the United States? Some longshots run because their egos demand it. Others want to raise their lecture fees. Some run because they have plenty of money and nothing better to do. Following a flood of viewer requests, the Texas congressman recently appeared on Fox News to explain himself. His answer was buoyant though laconic: “I want to be president because I have this dream. I’d like to reinstate the Constitution and restore the Republic.” His answer was also revolutionary.
Paul’s doggedness in advancing the causes of individual responsibility and limited government could intimidate almost anyone who clings to the label “conservative” or “libertarian.” Perhaps that is why he avoids those abused designations and calls himself a “constitutionalist.” His philosophy is simple: “no government intervention, not in personal life, not in economic life, not in affairs of other nations.”
Naturally he opposes almost everything Congress does. The physician cum congressman earned the nickname “Dr. No” early on. His opposition to what he considers unconstitutional spending even earned the grudging respect of GOP leaders. When Newt Gingrich cracked the whip on party members to support a messy budget compromise, he excused Paul from the duty to support the budget, and the “Ron Paul exemption” entered the congressional vocabulary. What did it take for other members to earn this privilege to buck the party? A voting record that opposed all unnecessary federal spending, even in their home district. No one else has been granted the exemption.
When Paul does propose legislation, it is simple, direct, and radical. He’s compiled an impressive list of bills that remain ignored to this day.
– H.R.1146 : To end membership of the United States in the United Nations.
– H.R.776: To provide that human life shall be deemed to exist from conception.
– H.R.1658: To ensure that the courts interpret the Constitution in the manner that the Framers intended.
His cheerful consistency doesn’t end there. Paul not only votes against nearly all government spending, he has refused to be the beneficiary of it as well. As a physician specializing in obstetrics and gynecology, he has delivered over 4,000 babies. He accepted no money from Medicare or Medicaid, often working for free for needy patients. With his support, his five children finished school without subsidized federal student loans. He has refused a congressional pension.
Monetary policy is the issue that brought Paul into politics in the ’70s. Having read deeply in the Austrian school of economics, he was incensed at Nixon for going off the gold standard and ran in a special House election in the 22nd district of Texas.
It still preoccupies him. Paul gave a thrill to surviving goldbugs in the first GOP debate this year when he referred to “sound money.” Since bimetallism and William Jennings Bryan shuffled off the political stage, widespread passion about monetary policy has been in short supply. But for Paul, the issue is still one that pits the people against the Beltway: “I think it’s very convenient for them [politicians] not to worry about it—whether they are spending money they don’t have for a war, whether you are liberal and like big welfare or a neoconservative and you like entitlements. They know somehow or another if the taxes come up short, there is a system, of course they know we borrow it and they complain about that, but I complain about the printing to pick up the shortfall. It’s such a serious problem.”
This is what he refers to as the “inflation tax.” With a paper currency, Paul says, “You get too many bubbles. And people suffer. Whether it’s the NASDAQ bubble or the housing bubble. It’s also the reason people are poor. … There is this transfer of wealth from the poor to the middle class to the very wealthy. And it leads to conflict. There are lots of people in this country who haven’t had an increase in real wages in 30 years. The Republicans deny it. And the Democrats say, ‘Well we need more taxes on those who have too much.’ They tax productivity to give it to others. I would not immediately close the doors on the Federal Reserve. But the doors may get closed if there is a monetary crisis. There are no paper currencies that last for a long period of time.”
While he lost his first re-election to a Democrat, Paul came back to win in a 1978 rematch, then won again in 1980 and ’82. He later lost a 1984 Senate GOP primary to Phil Gramm. Not wanting to be a lifelong politician, he returned to the practice of medicine full time. Tom DeLay won his seat.
Paul ran as the Libertarian candidate for president in 1988, “just to talk to about the issues” in his own recounting. He drew a meager 0.47 percent of the vote but found an enthusiastic following.
In 1995, he decided to run for the 14th Congressional district, which had been redrawn to include his home in Lake Jackson. His opponent, Greg Laughlin, despite being a recent Republican convert, received the support of the party establishment, including then Gov. George W. Bush. Paul’s return to congressional politics was based on the results of the ’94 Republican Revolution: “I thought, ‘Maybe they are serious and they will shrink the size of big government.’” Paul sighs recalling that burst of optimism, “but there was no truth to that.”
His second go-around in the capital focused on many of the same issues that animated his first tour. His principles never changed, though some of his libertarian supporters have been dismayed by his stands on trade deals and immigration.
While Paul considers himself a staunch free trader, he opposed CAFTA and deplored its predecessor, NAFTA. Paul explains, “I was on the side of the protectionists, and I’m not a protectionist. It’s not true free trade. It’s special-interest trade. It’s managed trade. … I didn’t like the trade deal because it was another level of government and a loss of sovereignty.”
On immigration, Paul finds himself on the side of restrictionists. On LewRockwell.com, Paul outlined a six-step approach: 1) Physically secure the border. 2) Enforce current visa laws. 3) Reject amnesty. 4) End welfare state incentives to immigrants. 5) End birthright citizenship. 6) Standardize legal immigration rules and waiting periods. When questioned by Reason about what he’d say to libertarians who disagree with him, Paul was brusque: “If they don’t agree, they’d have to be anarchists, and I’m not. — I do believe in a responsibility to protect our borders, rather than worrying about the border between North and South Korea or Iraq and Syria, and I think that’s a reasonable position.”
Increasingly, foreign intervention has come to dominate the political discourse. “I had concentrated on monetary policy,” Paul said. “Over the years I’ve learned to tie that in with the war policy. You can’t fight wars without inflation. You never have a war without inflation. … The ’70s were hectic times. We had 15 percent inflation, interest rates went to 21 percent, we had the highest unemployment since the Depression. It came as a consequence of the philosophy of guns and butter. And of course the same thing exists today, except one thing is a lot worse: there are many more dollars circulating around the world, and we’ve lost our manufacturing base.”
Paul believes the Republican Party lost its way by not remaining the peace party. Recently, when speaking to a group of skeptical conservative journalists, he pointed out in his grandfatherly tone, “In 1952, Eisenhower ran as a peace candidate. In 1968, Nixon ran on obtaining peace with honor.” Paul also mentions that Bush won, in part, by touting a “humble foreign policy.” Even warmongers won elections that way: “Wilson ran on peace. FDR, same thing.”
When he is inevitably asked if he is running in the right party, Paul states plainly, “I don’t think the Democrats have any intention to change our policies in the Middle East. I want the antiwar position to be traditional, conservative, and constitutional and not only for the far Left. I don’t object to the Left being opposed to the war. But that Michael Moore image is not going to persuade housewives. I think a lot of Republicans have forgotten their traditional position of being antiwar.”
Making the antiwar message broadly appealing may be difficult for Paul because of his temperament. The exchange between Paul and Rudy Giuliani in the South Carolina debate raised Paul’s profile nationally but was thought to have been the moment when Giuliani won the debate. After Paul explained that terrorists attack the U.S. not because they hate our freedoms but because they hate our policies, Giuliani rephrased his answer to suggest Paul thought America “invited” the attacks. He said he’d never heard such an idea and declared it “absurd.” Paul didn’t back down, but he gave a technical response about “blowback” that, while correct, didn’t connect with the audience emotionally. He was hit hard, and while he didn’t drop to the mat, he didn’t hit back.
At a press conference later, Paul presented a list of books to inform Giuliani that, indeed, policies do have consequences. On the list were the 9/11 Commission Report, Blowback by Chalmers Johnson, and Dying to Win by Robert Pape. Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s bin Laden unit and author of Imperial Hubris appeared alongside Paul. The press conference underscored both the strength and weakness of Paul’s personality as a candidate: his professorial approach makes it difficult to dismiss his views as “loony,” but the academic style doesn’t motivate people to rally to him. His manner is always refreshing but rarely stirring.
When asked how he would confront his opponents’ charges, Paul’s answers are as straight and flat as a Texas highway. “The media would love it if you got real, real personal. But I just have trouble drifting from the issue itself. … I’m challenging them to think about policy. Nobody, liberals or conservatives, Republicans or Democrats wants to challenge overall Middle East policy. It is sacred. There’s oil. There’s the neocon idea of spreading democracy. There’s Israel. You just shouldn’t dare challenge our eternal presence in the Middle East. So they attack the messenger in a personal way.”
When asked if any Republican constituents who had initially supported the war have thanked him for his foresight, he shrugs and says, “Some, but not too many. Someone told me once: ‘They never forgive you for being right. They’ll always forgive you for being wrong if you apologize.’”
Paul understands that electing him president wouldn’t by itself “reinstate the Constitution and restore the Republic.” He is a realist: “You just can’t turn one switch and solve every problem. You have to build coalitions. I’d put a lot of pressure on Congress to live up to their responsibilities.” He does know what he can do on day one of the Paul presidency. His first act would be to begin cleaning up the mess we’ve made in the Middle East: “What you could do in ten minutes to send a signal to the world that things were going to be different is tell the Navy to turn around and leave the shores of Iraq. We have two aircraft carriers there, another arriving, and seven ships that just moved into the Persian Gulf. I would just tell them to turn around and leave. Tell the region that this isn’t my approach, and I’m willing to talk. I think that would immediately raise our standing in the world tremendously.”
It’s a vision that will inevitably be ridiculed as na├»ve by the imperial intelligentsia who helped American into this mess. But it’s also so noble in its simplicity that it is already causing Americans who are tired of the warfare state to look at this mild-mannered physician and see the politician they’ve always wanted: a man of unbending conviction, of proven fidelity to a strict interpretation of the Constitution.
After his latest debate appearance, Ron Paul’s name leapt ahead of Paris Hilton in Google searches. Bill Maher, who had given him a tough time weeks earlier on his HBO show “Real Time,” became desperate to invite him back for this season’s finale, declaring “he’s my hero.”
Grover Norquist has said of the good doctor that in Congress “one Ron Paul is grand; and 218 Ron Pauls would be even grander; but 20 Ron Pauls could cripple the party since the usual half-steps toward less government and less taxation might not find support among the more ideologically rigorous.”
Fanatics, dreamers, and constitutionalists long for the day when hundreds of Ron Pauls disinterestedly discuss monetary policy and the philosophy of the founders each morning between the trees that line New Jersey and Independence Avenues. In the afternoon, they can go into the Capitol and maintain the Republic by leaving most of us alone. On weekends, they can fly home. We’ll even let them wear comfortable shoes if they want.
But until the day when scores of Ron Pauls overrun the Capitol Building in sneakers, we have one man who heats his own soup and fights for the Republic, not the Empire. If America elects him president, he’ll sit atop a bucking federal beast that withstood the taming of convinced small-government riders like Ronald Reagan and Calvin Coolidge. It would be a wild ride for the thin, unassuming Texan. He might never forgive us for putting him in the saddle.

Senate Amnesty Bill Will Lead To Establishment Of “North American Union

Democrat Suspects New Senate Amnesty Bill Will Lead To Establishment Of “North American Union


By Donald A. Collins
http://www.vdare.com/collins/070625_dreaded.htm
June 25, 2007


With the Senate on the verge of regurgitating a huge amnesty bill and the House of Representatives likely just waiting to bring up a twin measure, this Democrat is cringing with disbelief at the perfidy and chutzpah of these elected officials.
Much to the chagrin of the Washington elites, including the Washington Post, the screams from the grass roots of America (strongly bipartisan, by the way) are reaching the ears of state legislatures. Finally, the Post did a June 25th story entitled "Illegal Immigrants Targeted by States| Impasse on Hill Spurs New Laws." (by Darryl Fears.)
No more "Waiting for Godot" for these states—the first real sign of state action since California Governor Pete Wilson's attempt to get Federal compensation for those illegal immigrants and since California citizens voted in favor of Proposition 187.
This is not a partisan issue—the fact that both major parties, the Democrat-controlled Senate and the Republican White House, are both trying to ram it down our throats.
As the Post reports,
"Frustrated with Congress's inability to pass an immigration overhaul bill, state legislatures are considering or enacting a record number of strongly worded proposals targeting illegal immigrants.
“By the time most legislatures adjourned in May, at least 1,100 immigration bills had been submitted by lawmakers, more than double last year's record total, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. This year's total is expected to grow as the issue continues to dominate debate in statehouses still in session.
“These laws limit illegal immigrants' ability to obtain jobs, find housing, get driver's licenses and receive many government services. They also empower state law enforcement agencies to inquire into an immigrant's legal status and hold for deportation those deemed to be here illegally. The idea is to make life so difficult for illegal immigrants that they will leave the state—if not the country."
Hey, ain't that grand? States are demanding the right to ask these illegal aliens if they are here legally! At least the Post article doesn't use the term "undocumented workers" in this piece.
Everyone talks about needing more workers. But we seldom talk about upgrading the technology in the work place, particularly places where manual labor can now be far better employed, as in agriculture. Jobs Americans won't do don't exist, except where the pay levels are not adequate.
Finally, after years of trying to get help from the Federal Government, patience has run out at the state level, so
"At least 18 states have enacted laws concerning illegal immigrants. Most of the legislation is seen as punitive, and it reflects legislators' anger at the federal government's inability to seal the southern border and at provisions in the Senate bill that would allow the 12 million illegal immigrants already here a path to citizenship."
And our morally and politically bankrupt President is whining to Congress urging them to "summon the political courage" to pass a bill like the one the Senate is expected to take up this week.
But the main play of this current legislative game may well be not this S1639 at all. Listen up!
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) founder, Dr. John Tanton recently commented to me that this new Senate bill (S1639) seems to him analogous to the Trojan Horse stratagem used by the Greeks when attacking Troy.
Dr. Tanton puts his case very neatly,
"The whole Senate bill is the Trojan Horse, but the secret the Trojan Horse contains is section 413 (see below), which will be taken as authorizing the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership), which is mentioned by name, and is behind in fact an eventual North American Union (NAU). Here is what Robert Pastor, American University professor and chief architect of the NAU concept, writes in his book Toward a North American Community (Institute for International Economics ) on page 9:
"NAFTA is just a free trade area, whereas the European Union passed that threshold decades ago, on its way to becoming a customs union (with a common external tariff), a common market (with free movement of labor and capital), and finally an economic and monetary Union."
Could it be, as Dr. Tanton suspects, that Bush sees full blown North American Union on a continental scale as his ultimate legacy—one that through its "free movement of labor" provisions that will vitiate most immigration control legislation. In Bush's eyes, NAU would overshadow in the long run the blunder of the Iraq war. The Senate immigration bill is just the "carrier," the "stalking horse" for this larger ambition.
What follows here is a section from this Security and Prosperity Partnership initiative which Dr. Tanton mentions above:
SEC. 413. BILATERAL EFFORTS WITH MEXICO TO REDUCE MIGRATION PRESSURES AND COSTS.
(a) Findings- Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Migration from Mexico to the United States is directly linked to the degree of economic opportunity and the standard of living in Mexico.
(2) Mexico comprises a prime source of migration to the United States.
(3) Remittances from Mexican citizens working in the United States reached a record high of nearly $17,000,000,000 in 2004.
(4) Migration patterns may be reduced from Mexico to the United States by addressing the degree of economic opportunity available to Mexican citizens.
(5) Many Mexican assets are held extra-legally and cannot be readily used as collateral for loans.
(6) A majority of Mexican businesses are small or medium size with limited access to financial capital.
(7) These factors constitute a major impediment to broad-based economic growth in Mexico.
(8) Approximately 20 percent of Mexico's population works in agriculture, with the majority of this population working on small farms and few on large commercial enterprises.
(9) The Partnership for Prosperity is a bilateral initiative launched jointly by the President of the United States and the President of Mexico in 2001, which aims to boost the social and economic standards of Mexican citizens, particularly in regions where economic growth has lagged and emigration has increased.
(10) The Presidents of Mexico and the United States and the Prime Minister of Canada, at their trilateral summit on March 23, 2005, agreed to promote economic growth, competitiveness, and quality of life in the agreement on Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
(b) Sense of Congress Regarding Partnership for Prosperity- It is the sense of Congress that the United States and Mexico should accelerate the implementation of the Partnership for Prosperity to help generate economic growth and improve the standard of living in Mexico, which will lead to reduced migration, by--
(1) increasing access for poor and under served populations in Mexico to the financial services sector, including credit unions;
(2) assisting Mexican efforts to formalize its extra-legal sector, including the issuance of formal land titles, to enable Mexican citizens to use their assets to procure capital;
(3) facilitating Mexican efforts to establish an effective rural lending system for small- and medium-sized farmers that will--
(A) provide long term credit to borrowers;
(B) develop a viable network of regional and local intermediary lending institutions; and
(C) extend financing for alternative rural economic activities beyond direct agricultural production;
(4) expanding efforts to reduce the transaction costs of remittance flows in order to increase the pool of savings available to help finance domestic investment in Mexico;
(5) encouraging Mexican corporations to adopt internationally recognized corporate governance practices, including anti-corruption and transparency principles;
(6) enhancing Mexican efforts to strengthen governance at all levels, including efforts to improve transparency and accountability, and to eliminate corruption, which is the single biggest obstacle to development;
(7) assisting the Government of Mexico in implementing all provisions of the Inter-American Convention Against Corruption (ratified by Mexico on May 27, 1997) and urging the Government of Mexico to participate fully in the Convention's formal implementation monitoring mechanism;
(8) helping the Government of Mexico to strengthen education and training opportunities throughout the country, with a particular emphasis on improving rural education; and
(9) encouraging the Government of Mexico to create incentives for persons who have migrated to the United States to return to Mexico.
(c) Sense of Congress Regarding Bilateral Partnership on Health Care- It is the sense of Congress that the Government of the United States and the Government of Mexico should enter into a partnership to examine uncompensated and burdensome health care costs incurred by the United States due to legal and illegal immigration, including--
(1) increasing health care access for poor and under served populations in Mexico;
(2) assisting Mexico in increasing its emergency and trauma health care facilities along the border, with emphasis on expanding prenatal care in the United States-Mexico border region;
(3) facilitating the return of stable, incapacitated workers temporarily employed in the United States to Mexico in order to receive extended, long-term care in their home country; and
(4) helping the Government of Mexico to establish a program with the private sector to cover the health care needs of Mexican nationals temporarily employed in the United States.
Read that above SPP text again. It means that SPP obtains the cheap labor supply forever for business at the expense of us taxpayers and creates a tri-country union of Mexico, the US and Canada which virtually eliminates borders.
Imagine, open borders without any way to stop the flow! Where will our revered citizenship have gone?? We'd be part of Mexico!
SPP only discourages reform in Mexico, which has resisted reform forever. Why should the Mexican elite improve conditions at home, when its citizens can avail themselves of jobs and tax-supported services in the US? C'mon, get real!
Hey, folks, remember the old 1947 #1 hit song, "Open The Door, Richard". It tells of a man who has been out very late (very slow to get things right) and now is trying to find the way to get his buddy to let him in the house: He (Read Bush and Kennedy) sings,
"Open the door, Richard
Open the door and let me in
Open the door, Richard
Richard, why don't you open that door?"
We don't know from Count Basie's lyrics whether Richard opens the door. But we do know about the experience with the last Congressional immigration reform effort act in 1986 and we do know that with Mr. Cheney's capacity to subvert our democracy and his boss's willingness to let Dick do it, that the chances are good that Dr. Tanton's image of the Senate bill as simply the stalking horse for the un-legislated North American Union could readily become reality.
Remember what happened to the Trojans?!
Anericans contacting their Senators have made THE difference on the first go round.
This new, bad bill, and what it is likely to unleash, NAU, should be killed dead right now. This Democrat will keep calling those Senators. All patriotic Americans will do the same.

Senate Amnesty Sellout–An Attempted Coup Against America

Senate Amnesty Sellout–An Attempted Coup Against America

By Steve Sailer
May 19, 2007
http://www.vdare.com/Sailer/070519_sellout.htm

Under the leadership of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), various Senators and Bush Administration officials pulled an all-nighter behind closed doors on Wednesday. By noon Thursday, the bleary-eyed politicos had concocted an illegal alien amnesty (a.k.a., "comprehensive immigration reform") bill.
I presume politicians don't have Smoke-Filled Rooms anymore. So you could call this the Red Bull-Filled Room approach to deciding the fate of America.
No committee hearings are to be held on what may well be the most important legislation of the decade. As Senator Chuck Grassley [R-IA] correctly pointed out:
"It's disappointing and even ironic how the deal announced today skirts the democratic processes of Congress. It was cut by a group of senators operating outside the committees of jurisdiction and without public hearings on key components." [A 'Troubled' Immigration Reform Proposal | President Bush and the Democrats reach a compromise on immigration reform, by Lorraine Woellert and Eamon Javers, BusinessWeek, May 18, 2007]
As of early Saturday morning, May 19, the public has not even been shown the text of the bill. The ultimately failed amnesty legislation the Senate passed last year was 118,277 words long. This may well be more complicated. A photo of the first draft shows it to be almost twice as thick as a Bible.
So reading the new bill carefully will likely take at least 10 uninterrupted hours, and quite possibly twice that, a span of time that few Senators have readily available. To truly understand how the legislation would work and what its long term implications are would take weeks of questioning and debate.
Nonetheless, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) wants to have the entire bill passed by Memorial Day, a week from now.
Even more appallingly, Reid wants to hold the crucial "cloture" vote to shut off the possibility of a filibuster, the best chance to derail it, on Monday, May 21!
It is utterly impossible for the United States Senate to exercise the due diligence commensurate with the importance of major immigration legislation without extensive hearings.
The pro-amnesty Senate hearings spearheaded by McCain in early 2006 aroused tremendous opposition among the public. Although an amnesty bill passed the Senate in May, House Republican leaders wisely refused to be lured into a conference committee to reconcile their enforcement-only bill with the Senate's diametrically opposed bill. Instead, they held additional hearings on immigration last summer around the country. Foolishly, Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) tried to hold his own hearings in favor of the Senate bill, but the result of the dueling hearings was the collapse of any chance for amnesty last year.
From a good government standpoint, what we are witnessing is perhaps the most irresponsible and shameless attempt to hustle a pig in a poke past the public in recent memory. Of course, that's the whole point of the exercise—to not let us simple citizens in on the process of deciding who our fellow citizens will be.
It's only a modest exaggeration to call this an attempted coup against the American people.
Of course, the Main Stream Media finds this elite putsch admirable. U.S. News' Political Bulletin commented on Friday: "Media Revels in Bipartisanship Bliss The bipartisan process that led to the Senate deal is being celebrated in media reports." Today's press probably would have spun the 1939 Nazi-Soviet Pact as a triumph of bipartisan bridge-building. Who cares if the American people have to play the role of the betrayed Poles?
Why this obscene haste? According to the Boston Globe, [Adversaries praise a relentless Kennedy, By Susan Milligan, May 18, 2007] the reason is that "an immigration pact would need to be finished by summer or it would collapse in the heat of campaigning."
In other words, the government wants to elect a new people before the people start to elect a new government.
Tellingly, the increasingly out-of-touch Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and the half-Hispanic governor Bill Richardson (D-NM) were the only two of the countless Presidential candidates currently running to endorse the scheme immediately.
While many of the candidates appear to lack enthusiasm in their hearts for rigorous border control, they at least know what the voters want to hear. Thus, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) noted that the Kennedy-Bush plan would "replace the current group of undocumented immigrations with a new undocumented population ... and potentially drive down wages of American workers." Former Senator Fred Thompson said we "should scrap this bill and the whole debate until we can convince the American people that we have secured the borders."[How candidates line up on the immigration bill, By Mark Z. Barabak, Los Angeles Times, May 19, 2007]
The track record of the principals behind the deal is not reassuring. The last time Senator Kennedy and President Bush teamed up, the result was the absurd No Child Left Behind act, whose mandate that every child in America be "proficient" (i.e., above average ) in reading and math by 2014 can be met only by fraud on the most colossal scale.
If Kennedy is successful, this will be the third generation of Senators that the Massachusetts Democrat has hoodwinked into passing a bad immigration bill, beginning with the epochally disastrous 1965 immigration act, and continuing with the laughable 1990 Diversity Visa law. Despite (or possibly because of) this history, the Bush cabinet secretaries gushed about their night with Senator Ted. "He's awesome," exclaimed Homeland Security supremo Michael Chertoff. Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez effused that it was "a real privilege" to work with the Democratic warhorse.
While Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has claimed that she would only pass comprehensive immigration reform if President Bush delivers 70 Republican House members to her side, Slate's Mickey Kaus wisely counsels:
"Opponents of the GOP cave-in on immigration would be fools, I think, to rely on Nancy Pelosi's House to kill the legislation. … What are the bill's opponents going to do when Pelosi decides that, hey, 20 or 30 Republican votes are enough?"
As I've pointed out before, the Age of Ideology—when the big questions were simple ones, such as Communism vs. Capitalism —is over. We live in the Age of the Fine Print, where the devil is in the details.
We saw that with the 1986 immigration compromise that mandated both amnesty for current illegal aliens and workplace enforcement to discourage new ones from entering.
While most of the participants in that fiasco were reasonably sincere—unlike now, after 21 more years of immigration degrading our political culture —they were confounded by the difficulty of anticipating the consequences of their legislation. Thus they failed to set up effective enforcement mechanisms to prevent employers of illegals from demanding that the Congressmen to whom they gave campaign contributions badger the INS into ignoring lawbreaking at their factories and farms. So, due to rampant corruption, the 1986 compromise ended up in practice being amnesty-only.
The 2007 law's employer enforcement clauses would likely be as ineffectual - but for even more cynical reasons.
Only a massive and absolutely immediate response from an outraged public will stop this week going down as one of the most shameful in American political history.

The June 26th Frightening Amnesty Senate Vote Recalls Governor Lamm's Warning About How to Destroy the USA

The June 26th Frightening Amnesty Senate Vote Recalls Governor Lamm's Warning About How to Destroy the USA

This ghastly cloture vote in the Senate on Tuesday, June 26th, should frighten all thinking Americans about the likely course of events if S1639 should wind up the law of the land. What is happening to the United States of American under the leadership of the Sellout Senate, the White House and its likely mirror image of support in the Open Border Democratic House of Representatives should spark immediate anger and action from all Americans.
We speculated before this cloture vote in a June 25th piece that enactment of S1639 would be like putting a Trojan Horse into America, allowing the swift almost silent amalgamation of Mexico, the US and Canada into the North American Union.
All these steps remind us that our Federal Government has consistently for years failed its citizens to address the immigration invasion which now allows largely illegal Latin American workers in America to send billions of dollars home, mainly to Mexico, and the 12 to 20 million illegals in our country to make increasing use of our tax supported services. We are screaming and the elites in Congress are scheming.


Very scary, generating a feeling among those aware of what is happening of desperation, of frustration, of the need to do something revolutionary to catch the attention of those who should have repaired our immigration system making our borders secure and demanding that employers not employ illegal aliens or import H1-B's well beyond any need for them. Has the greed and fecklessness gotten too high to reclaim of heritage? How rich does one have to get before he or she begins to think of the country instead of piling up more money?
Well this is not new business. On October 19, 2003, an immigration-overpopulation conference, which I attended, was held in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. Here is what he said, as written up by Frosty Wooldridge:
A brilliant college professor named Victor Davis Hanson talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration—both legal and illegal—was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States.
He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"
"Here is how they do it," Lamm said:
"Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual.
"The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.' Canada, Belgium, Malyasia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans."
Lamm went on:
"Invent 'multi-culturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.
"We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multi-cultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated, however ethnocentrically, what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.'" Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."
"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other—that is, when they are not killing each other."
"A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy Persia threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to over come two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'unum,' we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits ~ make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century—that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate."
"Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. The profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.'
American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America—take note of California and other states—to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."
Governor Lamm, walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast.
Now with events having gone exactly as the Governor predicted, this immigration monster will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.
There is of course still time, but we really need to let these mad people in the Senate understand the extent of their idiocy and greed. Let's keep going and maybe we can stop it yet. But immense thanks again to Dick Lamm, whose speech really captured the essence of what the debate is about.

Tyranny In The North American Union And Chaos In The New World Order

Chaos En Novus Ordo Seclorum
"Make me one with everything" - Buddhist in a pizza parlour
Unification of Europe was first - now the North American Union is in full swing - replete with fuzzy, double-speak, feel good names like Harmonization, Deep Integration, Free Trade, Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement, etc. These measures, based on negating geopolitical boundaries and securing monopolistic markets, will ultimately lead to the clash of cultures, as has already begun. Of course the elite will have a solution for the Hegelian problem they created, namely, a new world order – with themselves as puppet masters pulling our strings.
"For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." - David Rockefeller 2002 autobiography Memoirs

There is a small, but powerful group of individuals who are the architects and instigators behind the formation and implementation of the New World Order. Their plans represent a consciously organized attempt to bring about an end to national sovereignty and western democracy.

"David Rockefeller is the most conspicuous representative today of the ruling class, a multinational fraternity of men who shape the global economy and manage the flow of its capital. Rockefeller was born to it, and he has made the most of it. But what some critics see as a vast international conspiracy, he considers a circumstance of life and just another day's work... In the world of David Rockefeller it's hard to tell where business ends and politics begins" - Bill Moyers

Their motivations are the age old human traits of greed and power – their instruments of control include the monopolization of corporate interests and banking, influence of political power, enforcement of laws utilizing a ruthless and centralized military, the manipulation of opinion engendered through academic circles, and the control of mainstream media which provides the necessary propaganda tool to shape public consciousness.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National autodetermination practiced in past centuries" - David Rockefeller - address to a Trilateral Commission

North America is being transformed from three distinct countries - Canada, USA and Mexico, into a single economic entity called the North American Union. The creation of this new state is being implemented by stealth, virtually without opposition, and in front of an unwitting population.

"The unaware are unaware that they are unaware" - Bo Britz

The method of enforcement for the North American Union is a police state. Under the guise of keeping us all safe with anti-terrorist laws, citizens will lose their civil liberties preventing any dissent against Big Brother.

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death." - Adolf Hitler

"There ought to be limits to freedom" - GW Bush

Learning the truth about 9/11, and its integral part in the formation of the new world order, helps us to understand the concepts and objectives of the globalists. Just as this event has been used to justify such horrific acts of aggression and suppression of freedoms, we can use it to expose those who are truly responsible, and start to heal the deep wounds afflicted by such aberrations of humanity.
The ruling elite do not care about human rights, or true democracy, indeed, these values stand in the way of achieving their goals. For the current cabal, the end justifies the means, as vividly demonstrated by the events of 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq, just to name the most obvious. Their objectives must be implemented with the use of corruption and deceit, simply because nobody would willingly vote for the kind of world they are trying to build.

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order." - David Rockefeller
I remember going to the annual exhibition in Toronto as a kid. Inside a tent this magician was waving handkerchiefs over a girl who appeared to be suspended in mid air in front of him. Because I knew that humans could not just float above the ground, I was intrigued and determined to get as close as possible, and really look at what they were doing. Sure enough, the loose drapery hanging off the table at the back concealed, upon closer scrutiny, a protruding steel bar which held up the woman. I couldn't help but think-as I stepped once again to the back of the tent, a throng of people now in front of me-this is actually a really good trick, as long as you don't look too close or think too hard.
That's how I feel about 9-11. Nice try, fellas. You gave us a good dog & pony show-lots of fireworks; a quick and ready story filled with a cast of radical Muslim villains, all prepackaged for us to hate; and this guy with a beard in a cave, who can play evil mind-tricks from across the ocean-but the jig is up. And please don't think I'm being flippant or disrespectful to the many lives that have been so tragically taken through this horrendous act and all its subsequent horrors.

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the TRUTH becomes the greatest ENEMY OF THE STATE." - Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels
Once we expose the fraudulence of 9/11, the entire globalist agenda will tumble like a house of cards, or in this case, a "twin tower". Understanding this event within its greater context, we can pull the lynch-pin on the plans for the North American Union, and generate some much needed chaos in the new world order.

"Three things cannot long be hidden-the sun, the moon, and the truth" – Confucius
Look up and down the streets where you live. The vast majority of people in this country, and around the world, are just honest, hard working individuals who want to build a life for themselves, raise their families and enjoy their customs.

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one "makes" them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers-and then you cash in on the guilt." - Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged"

Although most people are not conscious of the subtle and the not-so-subtle mechanisms of social conditioning we are bombarded with on a daily basis, rest assured the elite in charge have an agenda, a timetable, and the means with which to execute their objectives.

"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves" - Edward R. Murrow

Here are just some of the documented features and objectives of the North American Union:
- Development of a common security perimeter by 2010
- Implementation of a North American Border Pass with biometric identifiers
- Unification of the border and expanded US controlled customs facilities
- A single economic space that shares a common external tariff
- A North American currency replacing the dollar and the peso that will be called the amero
- Seamless movement of goods within North America
- Labour mobility between Canada and the U.S.
- A North American energy strategy as a regional alternative to Kyoto
- A North American regulatory plan that includes "open skies and open roads"
- A unified approach on food, health, and the environment
- A permanent tribunal for trade and investment disputes
- An annual North American summit meeting
- Scholarships to Centers for North American Studies
- The NAFTA superhighway, a north-south interstate trade corridor linking Mexico, Canada and the U.S. The NAFTA superhighway will bypass U.S. entryways and allow global conglomerates to capitalize by exploiting cheap labour, bypassing local union considerations, and exposing the entire continent to potential security risks.

NAFTA , SPP, GATT, WTO and other trade agreements are the means by which the globalist political regime have expanded into North America. Different from the IMF, which can wield its power through financial dispensations to third world countries, these trade agreements supersede local regulatory powers, and through the force of national law, ensure that transnational interests are in a sense codified into each constitutional framework.
Opponents to the NAU include progressives in all three countries who believe the union would be detrimental to the average citizen. Chief among their many concerns is the loss of sovereignty and democracy, the relinquishment of authority to unelected corporations with privately contracted law enforcement, and the displacement of a workforce due to an influx of immigrants.
So what can we do? Many things. We have incredible power in our numbers and in our potential economic influence. The system would collapse without our cooperation. What we lack is the solidarity of purpose, and organization of our huge numbers.

"A nation of well-informed men, who have been taught to know and prize the rights that God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins!" - Benjamin Franklin
We are living in a critical time of change, our number one weapon in this new age is our understanding of the forces set to control us, and an effective response in great numbers from people willing to assert their independence and freedom - there was once a great country built on such ideals.

"Suddenly the whole world is not enough punishment for the wicked, nor reward for the good" - Taoist saying
We live within a duality of perception every moment. Within rages the battle of desire and reality, while on the outside, the ancient struggle between those who would work for the benefit of society, through peace, and those forces set upon exploiting others for profit and control, through destruction. Alone, we have the responsibility to assert our complete sovereignty first as individuals, and by extension of ourselves, to the greater group of which we are all a part.
Unification does not have to mean deceit and tyranny. National identities and human rights can be maintained while we come together on many things that might benefit us all. Just as we must accept the inner conflicts that cause us to adjust our desires, and with the right choices lead to a reinvention of ourselves in order to adapt, we also must recognize and challenge those external forces that would promote marginalization and exclusion of others, and create struggles that would constrain us in our inevitable choice between good and evil, and ultimately our ability to survive.

A native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt. He said 'I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.' The grandson asked him, 'Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?' The grandfather answered: 'The one I feed.' - Native American Story

On the grand chessboard of the power elite in this world, we may only represent insignificant entities, insofar as we are concerned as individuals. However, when considered as a group, we can have considerable influence. Our strength in numbers only serves our cause to the detriment when we blindly live our lives as revenue generating hunks of flesh that serve as an economic engine for the ruling class - it is our ignorance that works against us. When we are illuminated with the light of truth and understanding, we can then use that power to influence the course of events and make the big machine grind to a halt, or at least cause a few gold hubcaps to fly off. All this can be accomplished through non-violent means, lest we sink to the level of our enemies, in which case we risk becoming that which we oppose.
"Because we are part of one existence, whomsoever you are hurting, you are hurting yourself in the long run. Today you may not realize it, but one day when you become more aware; then you will say, 'My God! This wound was inflicted by me -- upon myself.' You had hurt somebody else thinking that people are different. Nobody is different. This whole existence is one, cosmic unity. Out of this understanding comes non-violence." - Osho
There is room for everyone in this world. My beliefs tell me that every human dynamic resolves from its highest intellectual level down to understanding and compassion. I know in my heart that we could be caring enough to engender a consciousness where there is consideration for all people on this earth. And I know if we use our heads, we could be creative and resourceful enough to find a way to do it while abolishing the act of war itself.
That would be my New World Order.

"If one has a self - it is impossible to achieve the great oneness" - Taoist saying
