You have all been lied to.
You were taught that the United States Constitution written by our Founding Fathers was the most important document regarding individual freedom ever written in the history of mankind, followed only by the Magna Carta. You believe that the Constitution set up a central government with limited powers, and that the powers not listed in the Constitution was left for the states and the people who make up the states. You believe that the powers of the central government were limited and that the powers of the individual states were indefinite, to quote James Madison
. You believe that the first Ten Amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, gave to each citizen rights given to them by their Creator that no government led by man can take away.
That is why The Powers That Be hate you.
They hate our Constitution. They hate our Bill of Rights. They hate our freedoms, and they are doing everything they can to take these away from us.
Is this an overstatement? Is this being extreme? Hardly. For over two years, the Federal Government has been attacking anyone that believes in a strict interpretation of the United States Constitution, labeling them as “extremists” and “potential domestic terrorists.” We saw this with two documents recently released within the past few years, namely the “Department of Homeland Security’s report on Rightwing Extremism
” and the infamous Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report on home-grown terrorism
that linked Libertarians, returning army vets, gun owners, Constitutionalists, Ron Paul, and Chuck Baldwin to white-supremacists and potential criminals. And now, yet another document has been released by the Department of Justice titled “Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism: Terms and Concepts
” that proves without a shadow of a doubt that the ruling class made up of people from both political parties (i.e., The Powers That Be), have nothing but contempt for our U.S. Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our American sovereignty.
The document is a “Glossary” and describes itself as a “tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations.” And, like most things that come from the Federal Government, it is filled with lies. But that won’t stop them from disseminating this glossary of ill-defined terms to local law enforcement all over the country.
But how ill-defined are these terms? Are they all ill-defined? No. The problem is with the terms that are typically associated with those involved in the American Patriot movement (i.e., the movement of citizens concerned with the integration of America into a global governing and economic system, or as George H.W. Bush and his associates and followers would call, the “New World Order”) and the fact that they are in a glossary that links those that use these terms with potential criminals, extremists, and potential and terrorists. The terms are typically defined as those used by “conspiracy theorists” — terms like “Genetically Modified Organisms,” “Precious Metal Dealers,” “Council on Foreign Relations,” “Constitutionalist,” “Bilderberg,” etc.
Conspiracy theories? Hardly. Not when you actually read the mainstream articles about scientists altering the DNA of crops
with pesticides and viruses. Not when you realize that the price of gold
has increased almost $1000 in the last decade alone; not when you read the articles about sterilizing the water supply
: not when you read the quotes and read the documents written by the prominent political leaders that belong to and speak at the Council on Foreign Relations. Every one of the definitions of terms in the glossary regarding the Patriot Movement is misleading, or an out-right lie, and that is what we should expose. When we do that, it will be clear as day as to why the government hates you, and why they are doing everything they can to silence you, especially by censoring the Internet
. For the sake of organization, the terms will be listed categorically, not alphabetically.
For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents 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
This infamous quote in his autobiography, Memoirs
, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a frequent member and attendee of the Bilderberg meetings is at least proof that some people are working towards a World Governing System where the sovereignty of the individual countries is sacrificed, and where policy for each nation is decided by an international body rather than a local or national body. The mere fact that the European Union exists is proof enough.
The glossary defines Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, New World Order, One World Government, and Trilateral Commission very similarly, by asserting that right-wing extremists and conspiracy theorists believe that these organizations are attempting to control the world and usher in a one-world government. But all one has to do is read the above quote from David Rockefeller who founded the Trilateral Commission to see that this is in fact a reality. He stated it himself, and admitted to conspiring to do so. But, that isn’t enough for the Department of Justice, so let’s look even further into these organizations.
First, let’s look at the Council on Foreign Relations. A list of members should be enough to make anyone raise their suspicions, because their membership reveals that they all share a common interest. Their entire roster can be found on their own website, titled “Council On Foreign Relations 2009 Annual Report
.” Generally speaking, the organization is a Who’s Who of the political, banking, and corporate elite. They meet behind closed doors and discuss foreign and economic policy, hold public “talks” and publish a public journal called Foreign Affairs
. Current members include politicians Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney (who even made an effort to not mention
that he was a member during his election), Sen. Joseph Lieberman (CT), Sen. John McCain (AZ), Sen. John D. Rockefeller (WV), Senator Jack Reed (RI), Sen. Olympia Snow (ME), former Sen. Fred Thompson (TN), Sen. John Warner (VA), former Speaker Newt Gingrich (GA), former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice, Henry Kissinger, and Obama’s Science Czar John P. Holdren, just to name a few.
Along with the political elite are members of the banking elite such as former Chairmen of the Federal Reserve, Allan Greenspan and Paul Volcker, Treasury Secretary/Tax Cheat Timothy Geithner, and former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson . . . again, just to name a few.
Among the corporate and financial elite are former and current CEOs, Presidents, and Vice Presidents of corporations like Fannie Mae, CitiGroup, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Prudential Financial, SONY, Disney, First National Bank, Shell Oil, Exxon and Xerox. Again, just to name a few.
In case you are wondering why this group filled with such important people does not get much media attention, and why you possibly haven’t heard of it, there’s a very good reason. The top CEOs of the Mainstream Media outlets are also members, including over a dozen writers/editors of the New York Times, over a dozen columnists, editors, and writers for the Washington Post (including the Vice President of Washington Post Company, and the editor for the Editorial Page!), columnists, former presidents and former vice presidents of CNN, correspondents and journalists for CBS, including Katie Couric, several writers/editors for FOX News including CEO Rupert Murdoch himself. You get the idea.
The reason that an organization filled with so many important people discussing foreign, domestic, economic, and monetary policies gets no media attention is because those running the media are members and share the same agenda as the rest — and they know full well that the agenda is vastly unpopular with the public.
Giving a speech in front of the Bilderberg Meeting, David Rockefeller said:
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 their 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 subjected to the 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 auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
We must pause for a moment to analyze this quote. Other than admitting to the cooperation from the Mainstream Media publications regarding the “hush-hush” nature of their meetings discussing policy, and the fact that they acknowledge that the majority of the population oppose their ideas for a Global Governing System, he says something even more daring. He says that the supranational (international) sovereignty of the Intellectual Elite and World Bankers is preferable to our current system (i.e. a system made of sovereign nations with borders). In other words, a group of self-proclaimed Ruling Elitists, which essentially make up all of the organizations that the Department of Justice’s glossary defines as “targets for right-wing extremists and conspiracy theorists,” is better than what we have now — even though the very banking elite
are responsible for the Global Financial Crisis we are currently facing! Even though the so-called intellectual elite have been calling for sterilization of the water, genetically altering food and salmon
and reducing the world population through vaccines
. Is this the world in which you want to live?
You will notice that within the Rockefeller quotes, we see the term “World Government,” similar to what George Bush
and his associates would call a “New World Order.”
So who are the conspirators? According to Rockefeller, the “internationalists” are the international elite. He said it himself when he said that some accuse him and his family of “conspiring with others” (i.e. the world elite) to build their integrated world system. The very same global elite that have bankrupted America and the European Nations
through fraudulent derivatives trading . . . the very same elite that lied about WMDs
in Iraq . . . the very same banking elite that funded both sides
of virtually every war since World War I . . . the very same elite that lied about Global Warming
and got caught doing so . . . the very same elite that printed trillions of dollars
and gave them to foreign central banks . . . these are the elite that should be running the world, according to Rockefeller. And these people are members of the same club known as the Council on Foreign Relations.
Does this mean that every person involved in the CFR (an organization made up of several thousand people) is evil and part of this plan to usher in a global governing system? No. But that does not alter the fact that many of these people are part of this plan, and that these organizations have incredible influence on policy making in our society. What’s worse is that they are unaccountable. We elect people to Congress to decide policy, not these people that meet in secret like the Bilderbergs. If they were working in our best interest, they would not be working under secrecy
And just like the CFR is a Who’s Who of American elite, the Bilderberg Meetings
are made up of the Who’s Who of the global elite
, and has an even smaller membership (a quality that shows just how elite the organization truly is). Investigative journalist Daniel Estulin
has even spoken to the European Union Parliament at length about the secretive meetings made up the world elite.
Without going too deep into this, all one has to do is research the members of the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission
, and you’ll see that the very same people and corporations are involved; the same names of Rockefeller, Volcker, Kissinger, Goldman Sachs, and Federal Reserve show up time and again — and that’s just the American elite.
This is what the Patriot Movement means when they say they want to “Take the Country Back,” or that they want to “Restore the Government,” which interestingly enough is a phrase listed in the glossary in question. It is clear that the power structures of the government, the media, corporations, and banking are all members of these organizations, and that they are working against the interest of the American people who want to hold on to their national sovereignty (again, quoting David Rockefeller) . . . otherwise, they would be open about this.
To add insult to injury, this glossary defines “Restoring the Government” as the objective of the Patriot Movement who want to, “Restore the government to its status before it started ignoring the Constitution. Patriots claim that most actions of the Government are unconstitutional and illegal.”
Well, according to the Logan Act
, which was passed in 1799, it is illegal for any U.S. citizen (including government officials) without authority to correspond with foreign governments or their agents to influence the measures of the foreign government in relation to any disputes or controversies of the United States. It is also, according to the Constitution, illegal to pass legislation over matters that the Constitution does not authorize the Congress to pass without first amending the Constitution (the 10th Amendment!) This isn’t the “claim” of the Patriot Movement; these are the actual laws on the books!
The Patriot Movement wants to Restore the Government by taking back the power centers of our government, our corporations, our media, and our financial system . . . in a peaceful way. No violence at all — we can elect ourselves to the power centers and take back the country, and that is what the Government is afraid of. They are afraid of people becoming educated and running for office themselves to retain our national sovereignty. Why else would they issue this glossary that labels concerned citizens “potential terrorists” and “right-wing extremists?” This has nothing to do with right vs. left, as I have covered before; Right vs. Left is a false paradigm
. This has everything to do with whether America remains independent, or if it is integrated into a global governing system. If you are a normal citizen that believes that the best kind of government is local, because the people have more of a say in policy decision, then the mere fact that these organizations exist is contrary to your belief — which is why they hate you.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
This is the oath of office for all House of Representatives members, along with all members of the Senate. Similarly, the President, as instructed by Article II, Section 1 of the US Constitution, recites the following oath when sworn in:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
This is about the only thing they do that is Constitutional—they recite the oath to defend the very document for which they hold the most contempt.
