Lockheed Martin's Hack Attack

Conspiring or incompetent, Lockheed Martin must be shown the door.
editorial by Tony Cartalucci

Bangkok, Thailand May 31, 2011 - Lockheed Martin has claimed, and the US Department of Defense has confirmed, that the megalithic defense contractor has suffered a "cyber incident." Lockheed Martin is claimed to be a defense contractor American national security depends on. If this private corporation really is bestowed with such a grave responsibility and it was incompetent enough to put sensitive information and systems onto the public Internet, it should immediately have such responsibilities stripped away and perhaps undergo a vigorous investigation in regards to its criminal negligence in handling sensitive state secrets. At the very least, all contracts should be canceled and new contractors immediately found - ones capable of isolating sensitive information from the public Internet.

Instead, the war profiteering corporation and the extralegal, extraterritorial global corporate-financier steering committees it is a member of, are using the attack to add to the growing call to institute increasing control over the Internet. It is yet another suspicious incident that has corporate-funded pundits calling for increased "cyber security" and lending further justification for the completely unjustified existence of government agencies like the "Department of Homeland Security."

Our politicians then parrot verbatim the think-tanks and their corporate media talking points declaring that cyber security must take center stage – not the gross incompetence of corporations that have uncontested, undue access and influence over the American tax payers' money. The next step will be increased legislation giving the government and their corporate handlers more control over how the public uses the Internet - all based on and citing incidents like Lockheed Martin's recent cyber security breach.

Defying Common Sense

Even on a personal level, private, confidential information is safest when it is kept solely on a closed system, disconnected from the Internet. Any information put on the Internet must be assumed to be at potential risk and suitable contingencies must be put in place to deal with that information falling into the wrong hands. If that information must absolutely not fall into the wrong hands, it must then be entirely isolated from the Internet.

Scientists who worked on America's most sensitive defense projects historically would live and work sequestered at research facilities. They would not bring their briefcases full of national secrets to the local cafe, ride the city buses, nor talk about such information on public telephone networks. It is hard to believe that today, such corporations, many born from these WWII and Cold War defense projects, have suddenly forgotten the value of closed, controlled systems where secret research and sensitive projects are isolated from the public in all manners.

The recent “hack” then is the result of at least two possibilities. First, it may be yet another attempt to scare the ignorant, uneducated masses into giving up more of their freedom and liberty for the sake of “security." "Security" being just a pretense for handing the corporate-financier elite yet another monopoly. If this is not an orchestrated event, it may just be utter incompetence. Either way, corporations like Lockheed Martin, the politicians whose leashes they hold, and the media machines that manage the public for them have outlived their usefulness. They have become as great a threat to our nation as any external enemy, either out of incompetence or unmitigated avarice.

It is time America replaced these aged, embedded parasites, obstacles of progress, sponges soaking up the brightest talent the nation has to offer and wringing it out into buckets of greedy, stagnant muck. Their missiles, warplanes, and ships are most certainly impressive, unrivaled even. But the price we have paid to procure this achievement is subservience to a despotic corporate-financier elite that has permeated and infected our government on all levels, as bad or worse than any invading foreign power could ever hope to achieve.

There may be the argument that no other corporation can do what Lockheed, or other parasitic war profiteering corporations like Boeing, Northrop, or Raytheon can do. Certainly this may be the case, but we must ask ourselves why our nation, with its vast resources, doesn't turn out annual graduate classes full of engineers, designers, rocket and nuclear scientists all capable of meeting local and national needs both civilian and military in nature. It is because the global elite have created a system so interdependent and monopolized on a global scale that only those that control it (them) can manage it and excel within it.

Americans like President Dwight Eisenhower or General Smedley Butler warned us long ago that the blurring line between corporatism and the American government was a grave threat to our nation's future. Decades later, with the nation under astronomical, mathematically inescapable debt, endless war, rotting infrastructure, and a sabotaged education system, is there any doubt that their warnings should have been heeded? Can we still heed them? We can and we must.

Throw off these corporations by boycotting and replacing them. For corporations like Lockheed Martin who we are told we “depend” on and cannot live without, their incompetence/conspiring as they bleed the American nation dry negates any benefit they supposedly grant us. In actuality, we cannot survive their continued existence.

The Fake ICC & the Globalist Strategy of Tension

Fake globalist-funded court using fake evidence from fake globalist-funded NGOs.
by Tony Cartalucci

Bangkok, Thailand May 28, 2011 - Russia's President Medvedev, according to the Australian, has "endorsed calls for Colonel Gaddafi to leave office and offered to help to negotiate his exit. " It is a move that has "surprised and delighted" both London and Washington after Russia's initial protest against the extralegal military action that was executed upon an Iraq War-style pack of lies.

This apparent backpedaling by Russia coincides with increased bombardments of Libya's capital of Tripoli and calls by France and Britain to send in helicopter gunships in an effort to increase the level of murder and mayhem in order to force the Libyan government to meet "concessions." The contrived globalist International Criminal Court (ICC), has also attempted to place pressure upon Libya through an "arrest warrant" targeting Qaddafi.

An Entirely Fake Court

The "arrest warrant" issued by the ICC is based on evidence acquired from "30 missions to 11 States, and through interviews with a large number of persons, including key insiders and eyewitnesses." The ICC itself notes that the "unprecedented cooperation" it has received has come from "States and organizations, none of which are currently working in Libya." Undeterred by their admittedly tenuous investigation, they go on to provide an enumerated list of their "evidence."

The global elite's vast resources, derived from their control of
a fiat currency system, enables them to create convincing facades
like the ICC to further perpetuate their illegitimate, criminal agenda.
Pictured above is the ICC headquarters, as impressive architecturally
as it is illegitimate in any sense of natural legality.

A look over this "evidence" presented by the "Office of the Prosecutor" reveals an amateurish, almost desperate attempt aimed at the Libyan leader. The entire basis of the "Prosecutor's" case is built upon reports taken from BBC, AlJazeera, the London Guardian, New York Times, the US State Department's Broadcasting Board of Governors-run Voice of America, the globalist-funded Human Rights Rights Watch, and the National Endowment for Democracy and Tides Foundation-funded International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), among many, many others.

Perhaps depending entirely on their self-appointed authority, slick logo, tall headquarters, and official looking website, the ICC hopes no one actually looks at the "evidence" or realizes that the same corporate-financier interests are the driving forces behind both the fake ICC and the fake NGOs and corporate-funded media organizations that have supplied it with "evidence." It should be noted that even the BBC, along with AlJazeera and many other corporate-funded media organizations have conceded, albeit buried deeply within their reports on both Libya and Syria, that their sources cannot be verified as it is based on 2nd hand information conveyed via "activist groups." It should also be noted that the "Arab Spring's" opposition and these "activist groups" are also globalist-funded.

The International Criminal Court itself claims to be, "an independent, permanent court that investigates and prosecutes persons accused of the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes." A visit to the Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC) site reveals just who is behind the ICC, who is actively promoting it and networking with the ICC's various NGO partners, and the fact that all involved boast the same financial and political supporters.

The CICC claims to include, "2,500 civil society organizations in 150 different countries working in partnership to strengthen international cooperation with the ICC; ensure that the Court is fair, effective and independent; make justice both visible and universal; and advance stronger national laws that deliver justice to victims of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide." The CICC however, also is "deeply appreciative of the generous support" provided by the European Union, the Ford Foundation, the Fortune 500-lined John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, George Soros' Open Society Institute, and Humanity United.

Humanity United in turn boast partnerships with the globalist co-conspirators of BBC World Service Trust, NED/Open Society/US State Department-funded Benetech, George Soros' Open Society Institute, and the NED-funded Solidarity Center which mobilized Egypt's labor unions just as the US-stoked unrest began to falter. These "generous supporters" are literally the same organizations that have built up the very "civil society organizations" the CICC is "working in partnership" with.

In other words, fake globalist-funded civil society organizations form a fake globalist-funded coalition, which in turn are supplying a fake globalist-funded court with evidence to further what is entirely a self-serving, politically motivated agenda using "humanity" as a mere and increasingly flimsy pretense. It is an entire network contrived out of thin air with fiat currency, and lent legitimacy by the myriad of corporate-financier owned media operations, such as BBC, AlJazeera, CNN, Fox News, VOA, and the myriad of other "sources" cited by the ICC's "Prosecutor's Office" in regards to Libya.

Indeed, the "International Criminal Court" is entirely fake, created by perhaps the most egregious criminals ever to have walked the earth, not to ensure "justice" in any sense we are familiar with, but to augment the self-proclaimed authority and legitimacy the global elite insist we are all beholden to. We are not beholden to it, not by any stretch of the imagination, nor are we beholden to any other contrivance operating in the name of "international arbiter." We have our local, state/provincial governments, within the nation-state. What appears beyond the nation-state are self-serving, multi-national corporate-financier conglomerations that transcend boarders, usurp national sovereignty and authority, and betray any sense of our innate, inalienable individual sovereignty by insisting their "international institutions" supersede all that falls beneath them.

Climbing out of the Globalist Strategy of Tension

Sovereignty and indeed the future of free humanity depends on our individual reassertion of our rights and responsibilities to sustain ourselves, our communities, our states/provinces, and our nation-states. We cannot depend on the Russians or the Chinese to act as the counterbalance to the global-elite because the Russians and the Chinese, through their participation in the IMF, the United Nations, and even the International Criminal Court - all entirely contrived by the global elite - for whatever reason, have fallen directly into a "strategy of tension." Russia's latest flip-flop regarding Libya defies the hopes of those who saw the nation as a dependable counterbalance. Russia's actions now serve to grant the globalist-praising, terrorist usurpers of Libya's rebellion an entire nation to despoil on behalf of Washington and London - perhaps even Moscow now, based on some behind-the-scenes deal.

By participating in these illegitimate "international institutions" the nation-states we live under are granting the transnational elite legitimacy they would otherwise not have. It is impossible to discern whether the Russians or Chinese are participating in such farcical "international institutions" as part of a Machiavellian strategy, hidden complicity to an emerging global government, or for short-sighted, self-serving interests.

What we can be sure of is our own commitment to our own interests and agenda on a local, county, and state/provincial level. Thus, we the people, be we Americans, Russians, or Chinese, must ourselves act as the counterbalance to the global-elite's unwarranted influence. Balking the Anglo-American corporate-financier oligarchs does not guarantee other oligarchs will not rise and take their place elsewhere. Only by committing to a new paradigm of local sovereignty, where state/provincial, and national power is beholden to self-sufficient people on a local level instead of multi-national corporations on a global level, do we end entirely the threat of any sort of global-elite lording over us.

Sun Tzu in the "Art of War" once said, "therefore the clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him." The ideal scenario for the globalists is for us to continue responding to their provocations on their terms. And whether we agree or disagree with their agenda, as long as we use their contrived institutions to contest them - we continue granting them more legitimacy regardless of the outcome of our protests. This is the ultimate strategy of tension, playing out daily on a global level, ensnaring well-intentioned but ignorant servants of the globalist agenda, as well as informed proponents of freedom and sovereignty alike.

By turning our backs entirely on the global-elite's institutions, their ploys, their causes, their wars, and their false political dichotomies, and instead imposing our own will, on a local level, cutting off entirely the source of the global-elite's power (our complicity), we force them to react to the imposition of our own will. The Tenth Amendment movement is the very embodiment of this in modern day practice, with the "Food Sovereignty" movement and now Texas' battle against the TSA's usurpation of state and local law enforcement in their airports taking the front line. Regular Americans from across the country are leaving the corporate-pundit guided debates and taking action, guided not by some political agenda, but rather their own innate sovereignty.

It starts with something as simple as planting your own garden, the piecemeal boycotting and replacement of all multi-national corporations, participation in our local government and the growing alternative media, and it results in the seizure of the unwarranted influence that has allowed a group of criminal international bankers to contrive their own international army, an international court, and the ability to wage war against entire nation-states with absolute impunity.

A Modern Declaration of Independence

A real revolution starting in our own backyards.
by Tony Cartalucci

Bangkok, Thailand May 25, 2011 - The current system, domineered by corrupt, career politicians and the corporations and banks that manage them like a troupe of actors, seeks to monopolize power on all levels. We are witnessing a "global government" taking shape, with "global institutions" that make decrees, laws, and even war not based on the greater good of humanity, but for the greater good of a corporate-financier oligarchy seeking to spread their power and influence to the four corners of the globe. They have done so under the poorly dressed guise of "human rights," "freedom," and "democracy." As the cheap veneer that covers their true designs peels away, we are outraged but perhaps at a loss of what to do.

Freedom is independence, the exercise of independence is sovereignty. Taking back your sovereignty is the real revolution. (Photo via Nashville Farmers' Market)

We are witnessing the destruction and despoiling of Libya, US-funded uprisings creating unmitigated chaos across Syria, a fake-revolution destabilizing and threatening the future of 80 million Egyptians at the hands of a US International Crisis Group stooge, Mohamed ElBaradei. And while disingenuous pundits still try to convince us that these are real revolutions and that real change is around the corner, we are on a road that leads to nothing more than absolute subjugation, exploitation, and inevitably much worse.

We have been convinced through a lifetime of lying manipulative media and our sabotaged education system that change comes only through a ballot box, hoisting up placards, and street mobs. In reality, elections are rigged - and whether the actually mechanics of the elections are rigged or not makes little difference when all the candidates are sponsored by the same corporate-financier interests. Like a theatrical performance, the same manager presides over all the actors on the stage in a story that is ultimately a work of complete fiction. Likewise, street mobs are easily manipulated, generally led by the very people protesters think they are "rising up against." Emotions run high, and the energy of the people is easily harnessed as a further means to the global elite's ends.

Real power lies not with political office, but rather in the ability to actually, physically do something. In fact the very definition of power is the "ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something." When a politician says to build a bridge, it is not he who builds it. Rather it is engineering firms who have the tools, knowledge, and means to literally, physically shape the world around them. When a politician sends his nation to war, it is most certainly not he who fights it, rather the military and its soldiers, the industries that arm these soldiers, the logistical networks that transport them to the front line, and the corporations that feed, cloth, and shelter these soldiers. When a politician makes any rule, regulation, law, decree, or proposal, it is never he who actually "does" it.

Corporations like General Electric, Monsanto, DynCorp, Halliburton, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Wal-Mart, Exxon, Google, BP, and AT&T most certainly have the "ability to do or act" and literally change the face of the earth. In fact, the vast majority of the rules, regulations, laws, decrees, and proposals, that our politicians feign to have developed on their own, come from think-tanks funded by and representing the collective interests of these very corporations. They literally fuel society, move mountains, bridge rivers, manufacture machines that dominate the air, land, sea, and even space, hold dominion over our means of communication, and oversee the distribution and sale of nearly everything we use on a daily basis. That is power.

Any means of protest or "change" that does not undermine or effect this current balance of power is nothing more than a superficial, ineffectual, and ultimately futile exercise at best, and a self-defeating, counterproductive, co-opted acceleration of humanity's consolidation and control under these global corporate-financier interests at worst.

Changing the Balance of Power

To actually change the balance of power, we must understand how the global corporate-financier elite have accumulated so much power to begin with. First and foremost we the people have paid into centralized mega-businesses for generations, funneling our work, savings, attention, and our dependency into the hands of the wealthy elite. Secondly, the global elite have augmented their positions in society with self-proclaimed authority, a myriad of rules, regulations, laws, pomp, and decrees that protect their various rackets and monopolies. They have also completely infiltrated and commandeered the political system. The United States federal government for instance, is increasingly demanding state and local governments become beholden to them, thus defeating the whole purpose of having a state and local government in the first place.

Quite obviously then, to change the balance of power, the solution must address these two factors. First we must end our servile dependency on consumerism and the "paying into" this corrupt corporate-financier system. Humanity as a whole is endowed with tremendous creative abilities - consumerism negates these abilities and reduces us to mere human-livestock. We must become producers once again, particularly in America where the nation was built on production, industry, creativity, invention, and rugged individualism. Second, we must recognize the "corporatocracy" as the illegitimate parasites that they are, and render moot their ever growing list of laws, rules, and regulations designed solely to protect their own interests at the cost of society and the world as a whole.

It Has Already Begun

The control of agriculture is one of the fundamental sources of power. Agriculture feeds, clothes, shelters, and even fuels society. It is something that we cannot do without, and depend on for our health and our very survival day to day. It is one of the first logical aspects of the current paradigm one should consider "taking back." And taking back people are.

It began in Sedgwick, Maine, where a local ordinance was passed protecting local farmers and markets from federal regulations designed entirely to destroy localized agriculture on behalf of mega-corporations like Monsanto, Cargill, and Syngenta. Rather than asking permission, the good people of Sedgwick, Maine simply declared their sovereignty vis-à-vis a state and national government that has long outgrown its mandate. The neighboring towns of Penobscot, Blue Hill and Trenton followed suit. Douglas Wollmar of Trenton, a local farmer who helped push through the ordinance in his town, cited Thomas Jefferson who said, "I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves," in regards to shifting the unwarranted influence and power of the federal government back into local people's hands.

In the spirit of Jefferson's words, the "Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance of 2011" clearly and unequivocally declares its sovereignty in all matters regarding local agriculture in what can be called a "modern Declaration of Independence:"

"We the People of Sedgwick, Hancock County, Maine have the right to produce, process, sell, purchase and consume local foods thus promoting self-reliance, the preservation of family farms, and local food traditions. We recognize that family farms, sustainable agricultural practices, and food processing by individuals, families and non-corporate entities offers stability to our rural way of life by enhancing the economic, environmental and social wealth of our community. As such, our right to a local food system requires us to assert our inherent right to self-government. We recognize the authority to protect that right as belonging to the Town of Sedgwick.

We have faith in our citizens’ ability to educate themselves and make informed decisions. We hold that federal and state regulations impede local food production and constitute a usurpation of our citizens’ right to foods of their choice. We support food that fundamentally respects human dignity and health, nourishes individuals and the community, and sustains producers, processors and the environment. We are therefore duty bound under the Constitution of the State of Maine to protect and promote unimpeded access to local foods."

And this is the true nature of freedom. It is not merely "doing what you want," rather it is taking on full responsibility for yourself and your place within your local community - having complete mastery and control over your own destiny, which requires self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and political and economic independence. We have been duped by the current power brokers that "doing what we want" is the total summation of freedom - not realizing that "what we want" is a perception carefully managed and manipulated by the system. In other words, like a caged rat, we are free to do as we please, as long as it's done within the confines of the cage. The current power brokers have convinced us that the cage bars are there for our own good - if we even notice them in the first place.

Translating Food Sovereignty into Total Sovereignty

Food is a fundamental aspect of power - but it is not the only aspect. Water, energy, industry, communications, security, transportation, and education are also essential. Translating the food sovereignty movement into a total sovereignty movement is the next step in the real revolution. A single county is more than capable of handling its own energy requirements, the management of communications, its own security via the sheriff and his ability to deputize, the production of clean water that meets the requirements of the local people, the management of transportation, and all matters regarding the education of its people.

Proof of this is the modern city-state of Singapore, no larger than most US counties, that indeed manages everything from commerce, transportation, and education, to their water supply, energy, and defense. Singapore boasts one of the best education systems in the world, a formidable military, and is a regional hub for industry and technological research & development. We can imagine then, American communities building a similarly localized independent society based on the US Constitution. These communities, independent and thriving, would act as cells do in the body, constituting healthy states, and in turn a magnificent nation - true to the principles it was founded on, honoring those who laid and defended with their blood that foundation.

By declaring and exercising our sovereignty in all matters on a local basis, we leave the elite's cage of societal management and begin managing our own affairs free of their influence. It is then up to us as to where our destiny leads us, a destiny we ourselves shape directly, day to day, rather than waiting and hoping in vain for a better "administration" next election. We must stop reacting to the global elite's strategy of tension, ever reacting to their outrageous provocations and egregious crimes against humanity.

We must instead look ourselves in the mirror and understand that we are the ocean upon which their entire empire floats, and we can just as easily sink that empire. Instead of reacting, we must start simply acting - locally, as the people of Sedgwick, Blue Hill, Penobscot, and Trenton have, declaring and exercising our sovereignty and independence on a daily basis. We do not need to ask permission to exercise what is our birth right. We do not need to ask permission to reassert our sovereignty in matters concerning agriculture, commerce, industry, or education. We simply need to start doing it.

The Testimony of Douglas Wollmar
by Tony Cartalucci

Editor's note: the written testimony of Mr. Douglas Wollmar was used to give his spoken testimony and cited various sources including an article by Rady Ananda titled Home Rule takes a beating as Maine defeats food freedom bills. It is quite amazing how the alternative media is effecting real, positive change around the country and around the world - proving that single individuals can make a difference.

Bangkok, Thailand May 24, 2011 - While misguided youth light their cities on fire around the world, clashing with local police and battling with their fellow countrymen, all to the beat of US-funded opposition groups, real revolutionaries are quietly, pragmatically, and intelligently changing society. They do so not with placards, mobs, slogans, or aspirations for political power, but with the declaration, enumeration, and exercise of their innate sovereignty. While we naively hope for a political solution to met out an equitable distribution of wealth and resources within a system created by hording megalomaniacs, there are those amongst us that understand the only way to solve the immense disparity throughout this world is to stop paying into the system that created it in the first place, and to take responsibility for the world around us on a local level.

One such man is Mr. Douglas Wollmar of Trenton, Maine. Having been inspired by the "Food Sovereignty Ordinance" passed by the neighboring towns of Sedgwick, Penobscot, and Blue Hill, he himself pushed for a similar ordinance to be passed in his own town. An ordinary man and local farmer, neither a career politician nor a technocrat, Mr. Wollmar brought the issue up along with his impressive testimony, to see the ordinance pass in a 29 to 25 vote.

Having been shaken from his apathy and inspired by the message of Ron Paul during 2008, Mr. Wollmar has proven that anyone can make a difference when we stop depending on others and start depending on ourselves. Shortly after "Creeping Tyranny Meets Creeping Sovereignty: Declaration of food sovereignty just the beginning?" was published earlier this month, Mr. Wollmar contacted the Land Destroyer Report regarding his town's own "Food Sovereignty Ordinance." With the ordinance passed, he has provided his testimony to be shared - an example for us all to read, consider, and utilize in our own bid to join the real revolution.

Douglas Wollmar's Testimony

Good Morning,

My name is Douglas Wollmar and I am a small market farmer in Trenton.

I want to thank those who came today to support what has now come to be a movement that has drawn attention from around the globe. The towns of Sedgewick, Penobscot and Blue Hill, our Hancock County neighbors have started a movement and it is now time for Trenton to carry the torch. I believe it is not only Trenton's right but its duty to support this ordinance.

From the Maine Statutes
Title 7, Sections 1-A and 1-B

“The survival of the family farm is of special concern to the people of the State, and the ability of the family farm to prosper, while producing an abundance of high quality food and fiber, deserves a place of high priority in the determination of public policy.”

Article I, § 2 of the Maine Constitution declares: “all power is inherent in the people; all free governments are founded in their authority and instituted for their benefit, [and that] they have therefore an unalienable and indefensible right to institute government and to alter, reform, or totally change the same when their safety and happiness require it.”

Maine is fortunate to have the infamous Home Rule system, which both constitutionally and statutorily allow local communities to legally pass laws in contradiction to state and federal laws. Maine's strong Home Rule tradition is what has allowed towns to assert the power of self-government in all sorts of issues ranging from banning of genetically-modified (GM) crops in certain areas, to restricting corporate water extraction operations. Home Rule is what has
historically protected towns from overarching government regulation and control, as well as abuses by corporate interests.

A legal analysis prepared by Charles Bussell, concludes that Maine has strong enough Home Rule protections to pass such ordinances.. Bussel notes, “The statute makes clear that the power of municipalities in Maine is strong—their power is to be construed liberally with a rebuttable presumption that a municipal ordinance is valid.” Governance over local food production that is sold locally easily falls within Home Rule.

This ordinance overrides numerous provisions in the recently passed federal Food Safety Modernization Act Not just small farms are affected by government intrusion via hyper-regulation. Fire Dept Pancake Breakfasts,Hunters breakfast, bean suppers,Church suppers, potlucks, bake sales, Scout sales, lemonade stands, community picnics, and all traditional food sharing events must now follow strict “safety” protocols. All food producers must be licensed, and all food must be sterilized and packaged, according to the federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

The FSMA now claims intrastate authority.

Food “safety” rules violate Maine’s constitutional requirement to support family farms
and Home Rule. The state Ag department has invoked food “safety” rules that small operations cannot afford. And that’s the point. Food “safety” is corpogov speak for destroying factory farm
competition from small, family farms.

From Rep Walter Kumiega from Deer Isle:

"The great push for food safety regulations from the FDA and USDA is misguided and, by hurting small,local food producers, will in the end make our food supply less safe, These regulations are needed to make large food producers more safe, although they are arguably a failure, since studies show a majority of supermarket meats are contaminated with diseases ranging from E. coli to MRSA."

“Requiring someone with two cows or a handful of goats to invest ten thousand dollars or more to build an inspectable facility doesn’t make economic sense. Hand milking is a perfectly acceptable method and does not need the same facilities that a machine milking operation does.

Two years ago an administrative decision changed an exemption that was standard practice.

Prior to passage of the FSMA, Canada Health whistle blower Shiv Chopra warned it “would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” It looks like he was right.

According to 16 Am Jur 2d Sec 177 & 178, the general rule is:

No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional statute and no courts are bound to enforce it... If any person acts under an unconstitutional statute, he does so at his peril and must take the consequences."

Jefferson warned that long-established governments must not be changed for "light and transient reasons." He added, however, that the documented record of a government’s "long train of abuses and usurpations, creates for its citizens a right and a duty "to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

From the Supreme Court, Marbury v Madison

“whenever a law is repugnant to the constitutions or the ideals or values which emanate from the constitution then that law is null and void on its face

If all else fails, we the people retain the right to revolution as reserved in the Bill of Rights (Articles 9 and 10 implicitly) and as Abe Lincoln reminded us:

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government they can exercise their constitutional right to dismember or overthrow it."

A vote for this ordinance is a vote to keep the right to consume food of your choosing, to have pancake breakfasts, farmers markets and fund raisers.

Are you ready to lose that right?

The topic of who decides what is constitutional is a point of contention, but ultimately, as it should be, it is left to the people. It would be a contradiction of American principles for the final power to lie not with the people, but rather with nine unelected lifetime lawyers. In an 1804 letter to Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, principal author of the Declaration of Independence, noted that “…the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional, and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also, in their spheres, would make the judiciary a despotic branch.” Jefferson would later add in an 1820 letter, “You seem to consider the judges the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves.”

It was understood by the founders that there were three equal branches, which were limited to their own sphere, but not one super branch and two sub branches.

For more information, please read the article describing Trenton's recent passing of the "Food Sovereignty Ordinance." Please also read the full text of the original Sedgwick "Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance of 2011."

US, Pakistan Near Open War

Chinese Ultimatum Warns Washington Against Attack

Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.
May 20, 2011

China has officially put the United States on notice that Washington’s planned attack on Pakistan will be interpreted as an act of aggression against Beijing. This blunt warning represents the first known strategic ultimatum received by the United States in half a century, going back to Soviet warnings during the Berlin crisis of 1958-1961, and indicates the grave danger of general war growing out of the US-Pakistan confrontation.

“Any Attack on Pakistan Would be Construed as an Attack on China”

Responding to reports that China has asked the US to respect Pakistan’s sovereignty in the aftermath of the Bin Laden operation, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu used a May 19 press briefing to state Beijing’s categorical demand that the “sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan must be respected.” According to Pakistani diplomatic sources cited by the Times of India, China has “warned in unequivocal terms that any attack on Pakistan would be construed as an attack on China.” This ultimatum was reportedly delivered at the May 9 China-US strategic dialogue and economic talks in Washington, where the Chinese delegation was led by Vice Prime Minister Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo.1 Chinese warnings are implicitly backed up by that nation’s nuclear missiles, including an estimated 66 ICBMs, some capable of striking the United States, plus 118 intermediate-range missiles, 36 submarine-launched missiles, and numerous shorter-range systems.

Support from China is seen by regional observers as critically important for Pakistan, which is otherwise caught in a pincers between the US and India: “If US and Indian pressure continues, Pakistan can say ‘China is behind us. Don’t think we are isolated, we have a potential superpower with us,’” Talat Masood, a political analyst and retired Pakistani general, told AFP.2

The Chinese ultimatum came during the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Gilani in Beijing, during which the host government announced the transfer of 50 state-of-the-art JF-17 fighter jets to Pakistan, immediately and without cost.3 Before his departure, Gilani had stressed the importance of the Pakistan-China alliance, proclaiming: “We are proud to have China as our best and most trusted friend. And China will always find Pakistan standing beside it at all times….When we speak of this friendship as being taller than the Himalayas and deeper than the oceans it truly captures the essence of our relationship.”4 These remarks were greeted by whining from US spokesmen, including Idaho Republican Senator Risch.

The simmering strategic crisis between the United States and Pakistan exploded with full force on May 1, with the unilateral and unauthorized US commando raid alleged to have killed the phantomatic Osama bin Laden in a compound at Abottabad, a flagrant violation of Pakistan’s national sovereignty. The timing of this military stunt designed to inflame tensions between the two countries had nothing to do with any alleged Global War on Terror, and everything to do with the late March visit to Pakistan of Prince Bandar, the Saudi Arabian National Security Council chief. This visit had resulted in a de facto alliance between Islamabad and Riyadh, with Pakistan promising troops to put down any US-backed color revolution in the kingdom, while extending nuclear protection to the Saudis, thus making them less vulnerable to US extortion threats to abandon the oil-rich monarchy to the tender mercies of Tehran. A joint move by Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to break out of the US empire, whatever one may think of these regimes, would represent a fatal blow for the fading US empire in South Asia.

As for the US claims concerning the supposed Bin Laden raid of May 1, they are a mass of hopeless contradictions which changes from day to day. An analysis of this story is best left to literary critics and writers of theatrical reviews. The only solid and uncontestable fact which emerges is that Pakistan is the leading US target — thus intensifying the anti-Pakistan US policy which has been in place since Obama’s infamous December 2009 West Point speech.

Who are Egypt's Protesters? (Arabic) من هم المتظاهرين في مصر؟

و لماذا علينا أن نهتم بذلك؟

بقلم : توني كارتلوشي - كاتب في جريدة أكتيفيست بوست

CNN BBC قناة الجزيرة

و العديد من القنوات الأخرى ملأت شاشات التلفزيون ليظهر لنا الشباب المتحمس في شوارع مصر من أجل الديمقراطية

الاقتباسات، والفيديوهات والصور والمقالات حركت الناس حول العالم. ملايين المصريين، كما ادعت قناة الجزيرة، خرجوا إلى الشوارع في "يوم الرحيل". وقال “لين جون” على قناة بي بي سي يبدو كما لو أن "كل مصر" في ميدان التحرير. انها لحظة نادرة تكون فيها حياً منذ سنين، تقريبا مثل المعيشة بين صفحات نص فيلم هوليوود

و تم تصوير المتظاهرين بشكل سطحي و مبهم قدر الإمكان، لقد بلغنا أن الإخوان المسلمون لعبوا دوراً صغيراً في الاحتجاجات في البداية و أن أغلبيتهم كانوا من العلمانيين، و الشباب المتحمس للتغيير. و كذلك تواجد البرادعي الذي رجع إلى بلده بعد “الوقوف” إلى جانب الولايات المتحدة في وكالة الطاقة الذرية

و لكن كفيلم هوليوود بعد وقت رهيب قصير و ذهول عقلي مع وقف التنفيذ بدأت تظهر الكريديتس و بدأنا نشاهد من المسؤول عن القصة الخرافية التي شاهدناها للتو

لقد تم إثبات جيداً أن محمد البرادعي يجلس كوصي في سياسات أمريكا الخارجية في المجموعة الدولية للأزمات. لقد كذب و خان

وطنه لينقذ السياسة الخارجية الأمريكية كما هو معروف علناً لهؤلاء الأشخاص الذين أنتجوا هذا الفيلم

الأمريكيين يعتقدون أن البرادعي “طار إلى مصر” وقد كان البرادعي في مصر في فبراير 2010 لتحضير انتخابات نوفمبر 2010 و بالطبع خسر تلك الانتخابات و لكن ليس قبل جمع عدة مجموعات تحت لواء الجمعية الوطنية للتغيير و تضمنت المجموعات : حركة 6 أبريل، الإخوان المسلمين، أعضاء من حزب الجبهة الديمقراطي مجموعة من الإعلاميين و الشخصيات الأخرى. و يكفي الأمر غرابة أن هؤلاء هم من يحتلون ميدان التحرير

حركة 6 ابريل بدأت في عام 2008 كجروب على الفيسبوك و قامت بعمل مدونات و تويتات و التواصل الإجتماعي من أجل دعم العميل الأمريكي البرادعي حتى من قبل قدومه إلى مصر في أوائل 2010 و بينما لايزال 6 أبريل يظهروا كهواة للتكنولوجيا فإن العالم يبقى ينخدع و لكن قوات أمن الرئيس مبارك لم تنخدع و قامت باعتقال اثنان من أعضاء 6 أبريل قبل استقبالهم لعودة البرادعي المخططة

و الآن فإن مؤيدين البرادعي في التحرير في جهد متجدد لتأجيج الفوضى و زعزعة الاستقرار و الضغط بعد رفض مبارك لمطالبهم الجوفاء

هذه الثورة تم تقديمها إليكم برعاية المنظمات في الصورة منقول عن منظمة


و الداعمة للثوار

إذا لم يكن دعم 6 أبريل للبرادعي مريب بما فيه الكفاية، فربما دعم


تحت قيادة وزارة الدفاع الأمريكية مريب كفاية


لقد شاركوا في اجتماعات في واشنطن عام 2008 بعد وقت قليل من إنشاء الحركة و هناك تم الترابط مع كثير من المجموعات التي تدعمهم حالياً

و تتضمن النخبة التي تدعم


ما يلي


مجموعة أومنيكون


أيضا تجدر الإشارة إلى اديلمان، شركة العلاقات العامة التي تدير خدمات كسب التأييد لثاكسين شيناواترا، زعيم الثورة الأجنبية الملونة في تايلاند

بوجود حركة 6 أبريل كالعقل و الصوت لتحالف دعم البرادعي، فإن التنفيذ على أرض الواقع سيكون عن طريق نقابات عمالية مستقلة، قام الصندوق الوطني للديمقراطية بتمويل مركز التضامنو دورها ليس سراً في بناء النقابات المستقلة في مصر. و بكل فخر تعترف بذلك على الموقع الخاص للصندوق الوطني للديمقراطية

و بروح الحركة المؤيدة للديمقراطية في 30 يناير عام 2011 قام ممثلون من النقابات المصرية المستقلة والمتقاعدين والمنشئات الصناعية الهامة، جنباً إلى جنب مع العمال من صناعات السيارات وغيرها من الملابس والمنسوجات، و التعدين، و الأدوية والحديد والصلب، وموظفي الحكومة الذين حاربوا لعقود من أجل الحق في تشكيل النقابات بعيداً عن سيطرة الحكومة، وأعلن الاتحاد الجديد للنقابات المستقلة المصرية أنه يؤيد وسوف يشارك في إضراب وطني دعا إليه نشطاء المعارضة، يبدأ في 1فبراير 2011، و الذي يهدف إلى وضع نهاية للنظام القمعي في مصر

و يجب على الواحد أن يسأل ماهي استفادة المسئولين في الصندوق الوطني للديمقراطية من دعم كهذا؟ وعلى هذه الأسئلة يجيب عضو مجلس إدارة الصندوق الوطني للديمقراطية، مستشار دائرة الاستخبارات الأمنية، السفير الأميركي السابق في العراق وأفغانستان، زلماي خليل زاد في مقالة في مجلة السياسة الخارجية الأمريكية و المقصود منه عمل مجموعة من الإصلاحات التي يجب أن تدعو إليها الولايات المتحدة في مصر، و من ضمن هذه الإصلاحات أن تضع رجلها البرادعي في السلطة، وهذه الإصلاحات ممكنة فقط مع رفع الاضطرابات الخطيرة الناجمة عن الغوغاء في الشوارع

و مع تقديم قناة الجزيرة للتقارير المتعلقة بالنقابات التي تدعم الاحتجاجات، فينبغي أن يكون الأمر واضح الآن و إلى من كانوا يشيرون. وبينما قناة الجزيرة لديها خبرة في غموض تقاريرها، فإن بعض وكالات الأنباء الأخرى تخفي حقيقة هؤلاء المتظاهرين

و قد تبين أن جوهر الاحتجاجات النبيلة ليس أكثر من "وزارة الخارجية الأميركية" التي وضعت استراتيجية العشب و مولت النقابات العمالية المستقلة، و يقودهم جميعاً رجل عضو في سياسات الولايات المتحدة عن طريق مجموعة الأزمات الدولية التي تشمل نفس الأشخاص الذين دعموا سياسات مبارك في المقام الأول

اعتمدت النخبة تماماً بعد ذلك على إثارة مشاعر الشعوب حول العالم للحصول على الأفضل منها، و إثارة ردود فعل غير محسوبة وفورية لجذب التعاطف مع هذه التظاهرات

يجب أن يبقى عدم ارتياح في النفس بينما تتحكم النخبة بواسطة عدة عناصر تساعدها لخدمة أجنداتها الخاصة، إن الثقة في هذه المظاهرات سخيف جداً و بالتأكيد مايحدث شئ مقزز.

و الآن بعد أن عرفنا من هؤلاء المتظاهرين حقاً ينبغي علينا أن نحذر و نهتم.

The Siege of Syria

Perception management & US-funded unrest used to justify regime change.
by Tony Cartalucci

Bangkok, Thailand May 21, 2011 - After admittedly organizing, training, funding, and equipping the very mobs littering Syria's streets, many of whom have resorted to arson and armed clashes with Syrian security forces, the United States is pressuring the Syrian government to step down. The US does not expect a sovereign nation to stand-down in the face of openly foreign-funded sedition, rather it is simply using the resulting violence to justify wider intervention and the eventual seizure and despoiling of yet another Arab nation.

The coverage by the corporate-owned Western media exclusively relies on "activists inside and outside the country," the London-based "Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Centre" which apparently has no web presence, the Damascus Center for Human Rights which boasts memberships with the National Endowment for Democracy and Tides Foundation-funded International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and the Coalition for the International Criminal Court, funded by the European Union, the Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Sigrid Rausing Trust, and Humanity United.

A 15 minute video breaking down the contrived uprising in Egypt. Examining what is now known about Egypt and comparing it to information emerging regarding Syria, we see identical operations unfolding. The only difference is Syria's Assad and his determination not to give in to foreign-funded sedition and ochlocracy.

Humanity United in turn boast partnerships with the BBC World Service Trust, NED/Open Society/US State Department-funded Benetech, the Open Society Institute, and the NED-funded Solidarity Center which mobilized Egypt's labor unions just as the US-stoked unrest began to falter. In other words, every organization involved interlocks with the vast corporate/foundation-funded imperial network masquerading as individual "human rights organizations" and benign NGOs. In reality this "civil society" network seeks to supplant national governments, and interface with global "institutions" like the IMF, World Bank, and the UN, all of which have been contrived by corporate-financier oligarchs. It is a modern day empire in the making.

These so-called "human rights activists" are entirely funded by, and predominantly based in London and Washington. It would be an understatement to say the "Syrian opposition" has the backing of the very corporations that have been striving for regime change in Syria for at least two decades. These are the same corporations and foundations behind the various think-tanks that are the true architects of Western foreign policy. It should be no surprise then that these "activists," or more accurately, these "agents" behind the Syrian unrest are providing the precise narrative and pretext required to implement increased Western involvement toward the goal of regime change, at the expense of many unwitting, well intentioned people's lives.

Dubious Reporting

NED-funded Reporters Without Borders recently compiled a list of "Journalists targeted by governments desperate to control news," which included Syria, citing the mysterious London-based Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Centre, while the Soros/Ford Foundation-funded Human Rights Watch cited the above mentioned Damascus Center for Human Rights regarding "alleged deaths." And it is these "activists" that are cited by not only by globalist-funded organizations but also the majority of the corporate-owned media, where each sentence is punctuated by "activists say," or the very groups above are mentioned by name.

The Vancouver Sun reports, "According to Syrian activists, at least 700 civilians have died in two months of clashes between government forces and protesters. Syrian authorities dispute this, blaming armed groups instead."

The Wall Street Journal reports, ""It's symbolic, but it's important because it's the first time the U.S. targets the political arm of the regime," said Radwan Ziadeh, a Washington-based Syrian opposition activist and director of the Damascus Center for Human Rights Studies." The Wall Street Journal would cite the center again as well as the FIDH, reporting that, "the International Federation for Human Rights and the Damascus Center for Human Rights Studies said on Wednesday that Deraa residents had told them that villagers digging in farmland on the city's outskirts found 13 bodies, including women and children. Deraa, the southern cradle of Syria's protests, was under military siege for at least 11 days."

The Boston Globe reports, "Activists said security forces killed at least 26 people and wounded hundreds." Boston Globe continues with astonishing disinformation claiming, "Wissam Tarif, executive director of Insan, a Syrian human rights group, said he had interviewed young men tortured just days ago. One of them, who had his fingernails pulled out, had taken a lead in the protests yesterday in Baniyas." It turns out "Insan" is based in Spain, not Syria and considers itself an "international non-governmental organization." Such information however undermines the overall narrative and it appears that the Boston Globe has no problem hammering reality into a shape more to its pleasing.

The London Guardian notes within a recent article the difficulty of verifying reports, citing a Human Rights Watch "researcher" monitoring Syria from Beirut, Lebanon who said, "We are receiving second hand information from Deraa that is quite worrying about bodies on the ground, more than 30 people killed over the last two days, campaigns of arrests, but we are not able to confirm that."

This second hand information derived from dubious or entirely discredited sources has been ceaselessly conveyed by the corporate media to the impressionable audiences of the West and used as the foundation for sanctions, rhetoric, and threats of wider Libyan-style intervention against Syria. It should be noted that similar second hand, unverified information derived from similar US-funded opposition groups served as the foundation for the current war of aggression being waged against Libya.

Syrian unrest is admittedly US-funded

Syria has been slated for regime change since as early as 1991. In 2002, then US Under Secretary of State John Bolton, would add Syria to the growing "Axis of Evil." It would be later revealed that Bolton's threats against Syria would manifest themselves as covert funding and support for opposition groups inside of Syria spanning both the Bush and Obama administrations.

In a recent CNN article, acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."

Toner's remarks come after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 under the Bush administration and was continued under Obama. As we can see, the campaign against Syria transcended presidential administrations for nearly two decades.

In a recent AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." That ripple effect of course is the "Arab Spring" we are now expected to believe was entirely spontaneous and indigenous.


As we can see, no matter what the Syrian government is really doing, our perception of what is transpiring in Syria is being filtered through a propaganda network bent on the foregone conclusion of regime change and the subsequent reordering of the nation. The level of duplicity has reached a crescendo with presidential speeches still claiming before the American people that "it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and must determine their outcome." Such claims are being made even as public statements by the US State Department and a myriad of reports have openly admit to training and equipping thousands of protest leaders before sending them to their home countries to start a "ripple effect."

It is important to understand that it is not lying puppet presidents like George Bush or Barack Obama that are to blame, but rather the corporate-financier interests who are conspiring and funding these global gambits and building this nefarious "civil society" network to supplant national sovereignty worldwide. Once this is understood, we must begin to undermine the very source of their power - that being our own complicity, our continual patronization of their corporations, their monetary system, our continual respect and obedience to their contrived, extra-Constitutional laws, and our continual participation in their system. We can do this by not participating in their strategy of global tension and instead, pursue our own agenda and build our own system, locally, self-sufficiently, and independently.

America's "Arab Deception"

And the greater war against free humanity.
by Tony Cartalucci

Bangkok, Thailand May 20, 2011 - As Adolf Hitler noted, "all propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach." Certainly the writers handing US President Barack Obama his "Middle East speech" had a particularly ignorant audience in mind. Holding to the narrative that the "Arab Spring" uprising were spontaneous Obama would parrot, "It is not America that put people into the streets of Tunis and Cairo — it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and must determine their outcome."

However, the "Arab Spring" was entirely engineered, prepared for, activists trained, funded, and equipped by the United States, years in advance, based on successes and experience garnered from decades of extraterritorial meddling. In particular, a coalition between the US State Department, NGOs, corporations, and organizations entirely contrived for the sole purpose of fomenting unrest in foreign nations, began as early as 2008 preparing for what is now unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.

Beyond a mere conspiracy theory, the New York Times itself conceded in an article titled, "U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings," that "a number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington..." Also implicated in the New York Times report was the National Endowment for Democracy, which provided these organizations the bulk of their funding.

Egypt & Tunisia

The Egyptian April 6 Movement was in New York City as early as 2008 receiving training and an opportunity to "network" at the US State Department sponsored Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) summit. In 2009, the April 6 Movement then attended training at the US-created CANVAS organization in Serbia before returning to Egypt to partake in the year-long run up to the revolution led by International Crisis Group trustee Mohamed ElBaradei and his "National Front for Change." In fact, April 6 Movement members attempted to welcome ElBaradei when he first returned to Egypt back in February, 2010, almost a full year before the "Arab Spring" would begin.

Alliance for Youth Movements boasts major corporate support, as well as a partnership with the US State Department. The organization was contrived solely to foment unrest throughout target nations.


Thus President Obama is an absolute, degenerate liar, intentionally misleading the American people and the world abroad about what is unfolding throughout the Arab world. The level of duplicity is unprecedented as is the scale of the ambition of the corporate-financier interests driving this plot throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and outward toward Beijing and Moscow. Not only was Egypt's unrest meticulously engineered and executed by the US, but so was the unrest in Tunisia, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, and Libya.

In an April 2011 AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." The ripple effect Posner is talking about is of course the unrest Obama claims was launched by "the people themselves."


Perhaps the most absurd proposition of all is the attempt to portray the events in Libya as a spontaneous people's revolution. In fact, for 30 years the US, UK, and the US-created Al-Qaeda, supported armed militants in Libya's east in their bid to overthrow Qaddafi. Hopefully the following time-line will lay to rest the official narrative as the profane lie that it is.

1980's: US-CIA backed National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) made multiple attempts to assassinate Qaddafi and initiate armed rebellion throughout Libya.
1990's: Noman Benotman and the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) wage a campaign of terror against Qaddafi with Osama Bin Laden's assistance.
1994: LIFG kills 2 German anti-terrorism agents. Qaddafi seeks arrest warrant for Osama Bin Laden in connection to the attack but is blocked by MI6 who was concurrently aiding the LIFG.
2003: Upon Qaddafi's abandonment of WMD programs, Libya's collaboration with MI6 & the CIA to identify and expose the LIFG networks begins, giving Western intelligence a windfall of information regarding the group. Ironically this information would give Western nations an entire army to rebuild and turn against Qaddafi in 2011.
2005: NFSL's Ibrahim Sahad founds the National Conference of Libyan Opposition (NCLO) in London England.
2011: Early February, the London based NCLO calls for a Libyan "Day of Rage," beginning the "February 17th revolution."
2011: Late February, NFSL/NCLO's Ibrahim Sahad is leading opposition rhetoric, literally in front of the White House in Washington D.C. Calls for no-fly zone in reaction to unsubstantiated accusations Qaddafi is strafing "unarmed protesters" with warplanes.
2011: Late February, Senators Lieberman and McCain and UK PM David Cameron call for providing air cover for Libyan rebels as well as providing them additional arms.
2011: Early March; it is revealed UK SAS special forces are already operating inside Libya
2011: Mid-March; UN adopts no-fly zone over Libya, including air strikes. Immediately, the mission is changed from "protecting civilians" to "ousting Qaddafi." Egypt violates the arms embargo of UN r.1973 with Washington's full knowledge by supplying Libyan rebels with weapons, while Al Qaeda's ties to the rebels are admitted by everyone including the rebels themselves.
2011: Late April; Documented evidence is revealed that Libya's rebels are conducting a barbaric campaign, employing extrajudicial killings, indiscriminate military force, child-soldiers, landmines, and torture. New York Times blames a lack of support.
2011: Late April, early May; Followed by calls to assassinate Qaddafi, ordnance crash into his son's home killing him and 3 of Qaddafi's grandchildren. NATO concurrently seeks a new UN resolution authorizing ground troops while aggressor states seek to release seized Libyan assets to the rebels.

With the US-educated Mahmoud Gibril Elwarfally, interim prime minister of the contrived rebel “Libyan Transitional National Council,” standing before the Brookings Institution for a May 12, 2011 talk saying “what’s taking place is a natural product of the globalizational process that started in the mid-80′s,” any lingering doubts as to who these rebels are fighting for and what their final goal is, is laid to rest.

Mahmoud Elwarfally, the rebel "prime minister" speaks before the Brookings Institution declaring the Libyan rebellion was a natural product of "the globalizational process."


Elwarfally would go on to talk about a “new global cultural paradigm,” and “new global values,” common values, shared by many “young people.” These young people, he says, are calling for human dignity, democracy, and inclusion at all levels of national government, repeating verbatim statements coming from geopolitical meddler Zbigniew Brzezinski and the myriad of US-funded NGOs that promote these “new global values.” Elwarfally would go on to reveal that Libya's future is to serve as a “a lake” to develop the skills of Africans to serve the needs of the European Union.

Again we see a globalist trained stooge, not "the people" determining the fate of a nation mired in carefully crafted chaos. Whatever the people on the ground think they are truly fighting for, it most likely diverges entirely from what Elwarfally articulated before his corporate-financier admirers amongst the Brookings Institution.


Syria has been slated for regime change since at least 1991. In 2002, under the Bush administration, Syria would be added to the growing "Axis of Evil." It would be later revealed that this escalation was accompanied by covert funding for opposition groups inside of Syria.

In an April 2011 CNN article, State Department spokesman Mark Toner was quoted as saying, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."

Toner's remarks came after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 under the Bush administration and was continued under Obama. Coupled with Posner's remarks regarding the training of Syrian activists who were sent back to their homeland to confront their government, it is clear that it was not "the people themselves who launched these movements." We will also see that it is most certainly not be "the people" who determine their outcome either.

Order Out of Chaos

Mark Toner's comments regarding US support for "civil society" that is attempting to build "democratic institutions" around the globe is in fact quite telling when one understands that "civil society" and "democratic institutions" are euphemisms for imperial networks. Such euphemisms are similar to the guise of spreading "civilization" the Romans and the British used as they conquered and subjugated populations globally.

In the aftermath of US-funded unrest in Tunisia and Egypt, billions are being pledged to rebuild the nations via IMF and World Bank loans. Anticipating Hosni Mubarak's departure from power, the US had already begun preparing an aid package to assist in "constitutional reform, democratic development and election organizing" before the embattled dictator even stepped down. It would be later revealed that Soros-funded NGOs were already cobbling together draft constitutions as part of this US-led effort to reorder Egypt.

After initially playing ignorant as to the nature of the unrest they themselves engineered, the US is now openly pledging billions to both Tunisia and Egypt via private investment companies as well as IMF and World Bank loans to "stabilize" their economies. Included in this "aid" is a "$2 billion facility to support private investments in the region." In other words, economic liberalization is the goal, and as pointed out before, such "liberalization" is nothing more than imperialism, economic and military hegemony poorly redressed as something more palpable for the ignorant masses.

Perhaps the best example of what the globalists' designs are for any given nation, is an article written by the Economist titled, "Let's all go to the yard sale: If it all works out, Iraq will be a capitalist's dream," regarding the military conquest and economic despoiling of the Mesopotamian nation. In their article they gleefully enumerate an ideal scenario for foreign investors including:

1. 100% ownership of Iraqi assets.
2. Full repatriation of profits.
3. Equal legal standing with local firms.
4. Foreign banks allowed to operate or buy into local banks.
5. Income and corporate taxes capped at 15%.
6. Universal tariffs slashed to 5%.

Students of history may recognize these conditions as similar to the results of British treaties made under the duress of their notorious "gunboat diplomacy." It is the elimination entirely of national and economic sovereignty, subjugating the inferior nation indefinitely to the imperialists who imposed such "liberalization" upon them. This is the ultimate goal, and while Libya's stooges-in-waiting openly confess they will be integrating their newly despoiled nation into the globalist combine, in other regions, such as Egypt and Tunisia, the transition will be more subtle as we wait for details of the proposed "private investment" schemes to emerge.


The geopolitical reordering and the subtle economic subjugation of North Africa and the Middle East is but the first step in a campaign meant to seize dominion of the world. As did all the empires before it, the global elite intend to spread their "democracy" just as the Romans and the British spread their "civilized society." While Obama speaks of self-determination, the cornerstone of true freedom, the facts prove definitively that events throughout this "Arab Spring" have been engineered, prodded, manipulated, and exploited years in advance, for the specific goal of expanding the global elite's economic and military hegemony throughout the world.

The key to confounding this deception is to understand that degenerate liars like Obama are but paid actors upon the stage of public office, while corporations and bankers steer nations and regions through their think-tanks propelled forward with their ill-gotten wealth and their unwarranted influence. They use propaganda, such as the speech given by Obama regarding the current US-fueled conflagration in the Middle East to divide and distract us, mobilizing us in one of two predictable directions to either promote or oppose their agenda. This strategy of tension fails entirely when we see through it, see who is really behind it, and decide for ourselves to pursue our own agenda, locally, self-sufficiently, independently and within the confines of true freedom.
