United Corporate-Police States of America

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura investigates America's growing police state.

By Tony Cartalucci

When former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura asks Homeland Security spokesman, Lance Clem, who in the Federal Government oversees the network of government funded "fusion centers," his answer is "no one." It is more than likely that corporations like the war profiteering Halliburton, slave running DynCorp and other globalist multi-nationals "oversee" and run them, as turned out to be the case in Pennsylvania when a private US-Israeli firm was caught profiling activists. This is a tyranny of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations. A tyranny to meet millions of Americans as they wake up to realize their "elected" representatives are nothing more than corporate rubber stampers, regardless of party lines and rhetoric.

The Federal Government has already deemed Americans as security threats, detained them without charges, and held them indefinitely without due process in purpose-built concentration camps. They were Americans of Japanese descent*, held during World War 2. If you think that it can't happen again, or the events of Nazi Germany can't be repeated else where in the world, including the United States, think again. It's happening right now, the stage is set, and only one question remains ... will Americans capitulate?

People might ask - why, if the government is so tyrannical, are shows like Governor Ventura's "Conspiracy Theories" allowed to air? Remember though, ghettos, concentration camps, mass murder and genocide in Germany weren't made possible because the Nazi's conducted a stealth, shadowy conspiracy. These horrific affronts to humanity were made possible by the German people's acquiescence and trust in their government that their very public policies of penning up "undesirable" members of society, sterilizing them under an aggressive, Anglo-American inspired eugenics program, literally tagging them, forcing them into slave labor and exterminating them were essential to "homeland security."

The price of the German people's ignorance, in some cases fear and cowardice, to stand up to tyranny cost them their nation, their prosperity and millions of their lives, homes, and livelihood. The price of allowing tyranny to fester in America will make 9/11, the excuse used to create the Hitlarian Department of Homeland Security, look like a footnote in history.

*It should be pointed out the role that the census plays before mass round-ups and genocidal purges are carried out. Both the Japanese in America and the Jews in Germany were identified as state enemies through the use of the census. America's recent, and quite un-Constitutional "redesign" of the US census, in the current climate holds frightening parallels to the build-up of past atrocities.

Thailand: Stage Set for Another Color Revolution

Thailand braces for more globalist backed violence and demonstrations.

: December 13, 2010. Red shirt leader, globalist stooge Thaksin Shinawatra's invitation by the US's CSCE to "testify" on human rights and democracy in Thailand, was also extended to none other than the International Crisis Group (ICG). ICG has weighed in on Thailand before on behalf of their proxy Thaksin, and are now again involved in this latest public relations stunt.

Members of the International Crisis Group include:

Kenneth Adelman: Former US Ambassador to the UN, former lobbyist for Thaksin Shinawtra, the very man behind Thailand's "red shirt" protesters, the riots, and the ongoing political instability in the country.
Wesley Clark: Council on Foreign Relations member, former NATO supreme allied commander.
Carla Hills; Council on Foreign Relations member, Trilateral Commission member, signatory of the CFR's "Building a North American Community" aka the North American Union.
George Soros: globalist extraordinaire, a personal and corporate member of the CFR.
Fidel Ramos: Former President of the Philippines, Carlyle Group member.
Richard Armitage: Council on Foreign Relations member, signatory of the Project for a New American Century,
Zbigniew Brzezinski: CFR member, Bilderberg member, Trilateral Commission member/director/co-founder.

Analysis by Tony Cartalucci

What happens when the UK's globalist nexus Chatham House, the US's International Crisis Group (ICG) run by George Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski, lawyers like Robert Amsterdam, and media giants like BBC, CNN, the Guardian, and the Economist get together to back street protests? Color revolution.

The country this time is Thailand. The organization is called the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD). The color, red.

Red as in Marxism; to represent the rhetorical flavor of UDD intelligentsia like Giles "Jai" Ungpakorn. Ungpakorn is a self-confessed Marxist and believes in turning Thailand into a socialist welfare state, the complete redistribution of wealth, and the destruction of Thailand's highly respected, centuries old culture, history and institutions. He published the "Red Siam Manifesto" within which he places his seal of approval on everything from President Obama, to abortion, to solar power, and frequently has his rantings posted on websites like Socialistworker.org.

Red as in Maoism; the chosen ideology of UDD leader Dr. Weng Tojirakarn. Tojirakarn is a Chinese trained Maoist who took part in the failed Communist Party of Thailand's fight during the 1960's. He was recently building up a network of political indoctrination camps throughout Thailand's northeast before taking part in violent UDD riots in April and May of this year. He is now in jail awaiting trial on charges of terrorism.

Red as in a reflection of Thailand's neighbor Cambodia; ravaged by the Khmer Rogue (Red Khmer), ruled by dictator-for-life, Hun Sen, and being emptied out by foreign investors under the cover of a US trained military and eloquent "people's power speeches." Cambodia has long served as a staging ground and refuge for the UDD and in many ways is a look into the future of a "Red Thailand."

And red as in blood in the streets; during April and May of 2010, the Thai military moved in to break up the UDD's protest, in a similar fashion that broke up the same violent protest a year before. Unlike 2009, UDD had provided its protesters with protection from professional mercenaries which assassinated the commanding officer and his command unit and ignited gun battles, arson, looting and rioting that lasted throughout May, killing 92 and injuring over 1,000.

The UDD is a centralized "people's power" movement under the leadership of former prime minister, now fugitive Thaksin Shinawatra and his Peua Thai Party (PTP). Thaksin in turn, is currently represented by international lawyer Robert Amsterdam who is also simultaneously providing lobbying services for the UDD. This provides further evidence that Thaksin and the UDD are a packaged deal and not as "grassroots" as the mainstream media suggests.

Thaksin Shinwatra appears on a giant screen to address the
UDD at a typical rally.

Amsterdam's firm, Amsterdam & Peroff holds membership next to the likes of BBC, the Guardian, and the Economist in the Chatham House. When BBC, the Guardian, the Economist, and even the Chatham House itself write articles and papers to support Amsterdam's position and overall "regime change" in Thailand, it should be of no surprise.

For instance, during Thaksin's administration from 2001 -2006 he conducted a brutal "war on drugs." In 3 months, over 2,000 people were killed in the streets via extra-judicial executions. As indefensible as conducting such executions might be, without arrest, charges or trial, the Economist had no problem spinning it around:

"On the streets of Khlong Toey, the largest slum in Bangkok, there is nostalgia for Mr Thaksin's iron-fisted drugs policy. The 2003 crackdown drove up prices, smashed trafficking networks and forced addicts into rehabilitation programmes. In drug-ravaged communities, where the ends tend to justify the means, that was enough to turn Mr Thaksin into a hero."

One can only expect as much from the mainstream media. This wasn't the first Economist article to help bolster Thaksin and his globalist backers' cause. It wasn't even a month after Sam Moon (formally of the Economist) was hired by Thaksin in November 2008 as a lobbyist, that the Economist began printing inflammatory articles attacking Thailand's respected monarchy and lending sorely needed legitimacy to the UDD.

Through the mainstream media Robert Amsterdam, Thaksin, and various globalist think tanks like the ICG continue cawing for "international" intervention and mediation, along with elections Thaksin can surely still buy with his political machine, alive and well in Thailand's rural northeast. The globalist media continues portraying the April/May 2010 violence as a one-sided massacre in an attempt to demonize Thailand as an authoritarian dictatorship, while Thaksin and his clique begin to gather protesters for a renewed campaign to seize power. Continued and persistent interest by the globalists in this matter, including their meddling in the mainstream media, and a recent invitation by the US's CSCE, for Thaksin to travel to the US to give "testimony" on human rights and democracy in Thailand, indicate that the color revolution gambit is still on the table.

Like all engineered, globalist backed color revolutions, it certainly is not about democracy or social justice. It is about regime change in favor of a known globalist stooge. It is about using crass demagoguery in order to divide and tear down the strength of a sovereign people. To specifically attack the Thai Monarchy as Giles Ungpakorn and the Economist have is to debase one of the few common grounds all Thais share and have shared for centuries. A divided, infighting nation with a damaged culture makes an easy target for globalist foreign investors who are clamoring at the borders of yet another nation, ready to insert their parasitic probosci and empty the country out.

And while dangers exist within the current Thai government of a slower integration into the globalist collective, the immediate most unhinging threat is a third attempt at reinstalling Thaksin Shinwatra into power on the back of a violent "people's army." What is most unsettling of all, is that the latter is providing a distracting cover for the former.

Problem, Reaction, Solution

"Portland Patsy" serves as impetus for rejoining terrorism task force.

An editorial by Tony Cartalucci

What should you do when your government's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) contacts, trains, and unleashes a "terrorist" to try to blow up your city's Christmas tree and thousands of bystanders using an FBI-made bomb? Hand over your city's security to the FBI of course.

In 2005, Portland became the first city in the United States to withdraw from the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, (JTTF) over concerns it would threaten civil liberties. Perhaps these concerns were well founded considering the recent case of Mohamed Osman Mohamud.

Mohamud was approached by the FBI, then assisted in building two bombs, one which was actually test detonated in a Lincoln County park, and another inert device that was driven to Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square late November. Mohamud attempted to detonate the bomb remotely before being arrested by waiting law enforcement officers. Since Portland opted out of the JTTF, the FBI felt no need to tell the city's mayor of their plans, and instead left the crescendo of the operation a startling and humiliating surprise.

In what appears to be blatant entrapment, the FBI has indeed confirmed Portland's worst fears regarding federal agents overstepping their bounds. Portland Mayor Sam Adams was one of the city commissioners who voted to withdraw from the JTTF in 2005. He claimed in an interview with NPR's "All Things Considered" that a lack of court oversight, lack of due process, the prospect of profiling being employed, and the Bush administration's policies at the time were all factors in his decision.

However Mayor Adams now seems confident that the "new administration" can be trusted and that Mohamud will receive a fair trial. Citing this latest operation as proof that Portland's terrorism risk is now higher, Mayor Adams is seriously considering rejoining the FBI's JTTF. To Mayor Adams' credit, he is insistent on the issue of due process before a civilian court. What is unknown are the special skills Mayor Adams believes the FBI has that Portland police lack, or how Portland police could have "foiled" a bomb plot hatched from start to finish by the FBI in the first place.

Adding yet another item to a long list of motives, the FBI may have taken a page from the mafia's playbook and overturned the proverbial shopkeeper's shelves in an attempt to get him to pay into their protection racket. An agency that sneaks around constructing and detonating bombs, allowing an inert device to be delivered next to a public crowd of thousands, all resulting in a high-profile arrest leaving the Mayor of Portland looking humiliatingly ignorant, is an agency with an agenda, not an agency performing its duties. Mayor Adams should be thankful the FBI didn't decide to go with a real explosive as they did in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in order to make their point.

Where this goes from here is ultimately up to the people of Portland. They can demand that decisions regarding their city never be based on what Media Monarchy calls "terronoia" manufactured by the FBI. They can demand that their own police be given the resources they need to serve and protect their community within the confines of the Constitution and according to their own local values. They should support Mayor Adams on his original stance, as he was right the first time and still occupies the moral high ground. There is real terrorism indeed and it is trying to force people like Mayor Adams to compromise on his convictions and concede that moral high ground.

US-South Korean FTA Rammed Through

Globalists Expertly & Successfully Wield Terror Against Koreans

South Koreans don't want it, most Americans
don't know about it, and now the US-South Korean
FTA has passed.

by Tony Cartalucci

Under the threat of imminent war, compounded by overtly provocative naval maneuvers, the United States pushed through what was thought to be a tenuous free-trade agreement with South Korea.

Indeed, headlines dominating Korean papers included "Military readies live-fire drills to deter North's provocations" from Yonhap News Agency, and "Defense chief-nominee vows air strikes if attacked" from The Korean Times, as the largest US free-trade agreement since NAFTA silently slipped through.

The free-trade agreement had been shelved during the previous Bush administration three years ago on the heels of massive South Korean street protests and again rebuffed during President Obama's acrimonious visit to Seoul last November. Now signed, the agreement will make it easier for US corporations to enter Korean markets. This includes the US's parasitic banking sector, a prospect that might off-set efforts by Korea's Ministry of Finance to close their markets to the dangerous speculation that has begun a collapse in the West.

Also worth mentioning is that with South Korea locked into the sovereignty-usurping free-trade agreement, bent ever more to the will of the West, reunification of the peninsula under a joint US-South Korean force will have Americans literally on China's doorstep. China may not then be as welcoming or supportive of reunification as the alleged"Wikileaks" suggest.

If the suspicious sinking of the South Korean naval ship Cheonan was linked to America's efforts to rein in the newly assertive Japanese government under Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, then this latest bout of provoked artillery exchange in late November and the subsequent military build-up can be attributed to helping rein in an "overly protective" South Korea.

Hardly unpredictable, America has consistently shored up its position, when tenuous with South Korea and Japan, by provoking North Korea. Respected geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley noted during his November 27th radio show that the recent provocations did indeed appear intentional and part of a "classic gambit" designed to drive South Korea and Japan under the protective umbrella of the US.

What is worrying now is whether or not this will send a chill to other nations seeking to protect themselves from the unfolding catastrophic economic collapse taking place in the West, particularly Brazil and Thailand. Both nations have proposed Tobin taxes among other capital flow controls, both have relatively strong economies, but may now be fearing similar "serendipitous" destabilization targeting their respective governments. Already in Thailand the globalist backed "red" color revolution is preparing another round of protests in an attempt to bring back globalist hitman Thaksin Shinwatra.

For the Koreans, their government and media seem to have taken advantage of the perfect smokescreen to hide the passage of this highly unpopular US-FTA behind. It was a smokescreen of such perfect magnitude and timing, of such benefit to the United States, it is painfully obvious that it was yet another reckless and contrived stunt.

For those that question the psychosis of the ruling elite, remember November 2010, when several lives were ended, roughly 73 million lives were threatened, and greater war involving billions risked, so more diseased US beef could be sold and US banks could plant their parasitic proboscis into another thriving, productive economy.
