G20 summit: Gordon Brown announces ‘new world order’

It appears that The New World Order is here.


Excerpts from the Telegraph:

“This is the day that the world came together to fight back against the global recession,” he said. “Not with words but with a plan for global recovery and reform.”

“Today’s decisions, of course, will not immediately solve the crisis. But we have begun the process by which it will be solved,” Mr Brown said. “I think a new world order is emerging with the foundation of a new progressive era of international co-operation,”

The success was echoed by Mr Obama. “By any measure the London summit was historic,” he said. “It was historic because of the size and the scope of the challenges that we face and because of the timeliness and magnitude of our response.”

Mr Sarkozy, who had threatened to walk out of the talks unless he got action on tax havens, said a “page has been turned” on the old financial model, the “Anglo-Saxon model”.

Prediction On The “Money”

On March 17, ’09 I reminded my readers of my prediction of Nov. 18, ’08 in the post “New Financial World Order” that I had made at suijurisclub.net.  Once again, I remind you of that prediction for a New World Currency and bring you an update.

It seems that President Obama, despite his denouncement of proposals by China and Russia to supplant the greenback with a new global currency, has, as pointed out in “Obama Denounces Global Currency While Creating The Very Means For Its Introduction“, brought a global currency even closer to reality.

My prediction was that this would happen “at first by stealth during the first year of the new administration.”  It seems he is working fast to bring this prediction true. Please take note of this article by Dick Morris, posted at his site on April 6, ’09: “The Declaration Of Independence Has Been Repealed.”

“On April 2, 2009, the work of July 4, 1776 was nullified at the meeting of the G-20 in London. The joint communiqué essentially announces a global economic union with uniform regulations and bylaws for all nations, including the United States. Henceforth, our SEC, Commodities Trading Commission, Federal Reserve Board and other regulators will have to march to the beat of drums pounded by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), a body of central bankers from each of the G-20 states and the European Union.”

According to this article – it is a done deal!

If only I could predict the next 6 numbers to roll down the chute during the Lottery!!

The USA Patriot Act and the Bill of Rights

The Act

The “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001” (USA PATRIOT Act, or USAPA) introduced a plethora of legislative changes which significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies in the United States. The Act did not, however, provide for the system of checks and balances that traditionally safeguards civil liberties in the face of such legislation.

Legislative proposals in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were introduced less than a week after the attacks. Though the Act made significant amendments to over 15 important statutes, it was introduced with great haste and passed with little debate, and without a House, Senate, or conference report. As a result, it lacks background legislative history that often retrospectively provides necessary statutory interpretation.

The USA Patriot Act was signed into law on Oct. 26, 2001.  This Act was overwhelmingly passed with 357 votes in the House and 98 votes in the Senate.  The Patriot Act decimates the Bill of Rights.  And there was hardly a peep from the “We the People.”

The original Patriot Act was drafted by both, Republicans and Democrats, the House and the Senate. But at the very last minute the original was switched with a version authored by Viet Dinh[1]. Under cover of darkness the President had the substitute bill printed at 3:45 a.m., only hours before the House vote scheduled for that same morning. Out of 435 Representatives, NOT ONE would read the substituted Act before voting on the bill.

It is not proper constitutional procedure for a bill that has been hammered out by both parties and both houses to be switched in the early morning hours with a bill prepared by lawyers from the executive branch.

Let us take a closer look at the USA Patriot Act and its effects:

Effects of the Act

The Act encompasses 30 years of spying legislation, laws that the congress had declared unconstitutional for over 30 years because they violate core American principles and the Constitution. The USA Patriot Act invades the lives of every American giving the President full authority under the law to violate our most fundamental principles under the Bill of Rights.

The First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Under the Patriot Act the government can instruct Libraries to turn over lists of books and internet records for everyone or anyone that visits their premises. The Library cannot reveal this “request” has been made and there is a penalty of imprisonment for uncooperative librarians. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!

The Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The Patriot Act provides for searches, without probable cause. Law enforcement can break and enter into your home, collect computer files, reading lists, video and magazine lists and even “bug” your home with high tech surveillance equipment. All of this in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment. The Patriot Act has destroyed Property Rights and allows for illegal examination of your private property.

The Fifth Amendment: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

The Patriot Act makes it legal for any American to be imprisoned indefinitely, without the assistance of counsel, without the right to face their accuser and be denied access to the courts. These provisions within the Patriot Act suspend and nullify Due Process of Law guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.

These provisions also violate the Sixth[2], Eighth[3] and Thirteenth[4] Amendments which guarantee the right to a speedy and public trial, the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment and the prohibition against slavery and involuntary servitude without first being duly convicted under the law.

The USA PATRIOT Act introduced sweeping changes to U.S. law, including amendments to:

Show Me Your Papers!!

If you are asked for identification at any time or place by any law enforcement officer – Be Warned! – Non-compliance could escalate to government sanctioned torture.

Could the atmosphere created by the Patriot Act have emboldened law enforcement officers to engage in activities that under ordinary circumstances would not be tolerated in America?

What happened to our fundamental Rights?

Bill of Rights Murdered

Did the members of the house violate their Oath of Office by blindly voting on a Bill they had never seen before? Was this gross incompetence on their part?

During Dec. of 2005, with open eyes and a flagrant disregard for the Constitution – both the House and the Senate voted to extend the USA Patriot Act, broaden its scope and make most of its provisions permanent.

Your Representatives did not hesitate to pull the trigger on your liberties.  This action can not be swept under the rug with any suggestion of mere incompetence by these men and women.  This second vote evidenced a blatant, brazen and deliberate violation of their Oath. But is it evidence of compromised politicians or was this straight up treason?

It only took 262 Republicans and 77 Democrats to kill the Bill of Rights.

American Terrorists

John Ashcroft stated: “To those who scare peace loving people with phantoms of lost liberty my message is this: Your tactics only aid terrorists.”

What is he really saying? Is he claiming that opposition to this Act is not an attempt to protect our liberty but “aiding and abetting” terrorists? Does he dare lump freedom loving Americans in with “terrorists.”?? If you speak out about the danger to freedom that legislation such as this holds do you become a “terrorist” in the eyes of your “servant” government?

Responsibility and Solutions

Many people have bought the line “you can’t fight city hall” and believe this horror cannot be overcome.  Please don’t buy into that because there is something that we can do.

In response to the loss of liberty under the Patriot Act, government leaders in states, townships and cities across the country have begun to systematically enact local legislation that prevents the enforcement of the Patriot Act within those localized communities.

The documentary “Washington, You’re Fired” notes that at the closing of 2007 –  there were 412 city, county and states which had passed anti-Patriot Act legislation and there were another 277 resolutions pending. Maine was the First State to pass such legislation against the Patriot Act followed by 7 other states, including, ironically, Washington, D.C.

The Bill of Rights Defense Committee helps communities across the country to participate in an ongoing national debate about American Liberty. Their mission is to promote, organize and support national grass roots movements to restore and protect Liberty as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.  Every American is entitled to Bill of Rights protections.  It is the responsibility of every Freedom loving American to act to protect the Liberty guaranteed and protected by the Bill of Rights.

If you would like to become involved: go to www.bordc.org, find your state, locate your city and contact the person in charge of Patriot Act legislation in your area. Find out how you can help.

Americans must be vocal on this issue.   The USA Patriot Act MUST GO!!

CIA Bin Laden Expert: Only Ron Paul Gets It

Michael Scheuer, CIA Bin Laden Expert and former head of the Osama Bin Laden unit appeared on Fox News and Bill O’Reilly’s radioshow promoting his new book, “Marching Towards Hell” and spoke about Terrorism.  According to this CIA expert, with the exception of Ron Paul and perhaps Dennis Kucinich, no other presidential candidates understand what motivates terrorism.

While the Mainstream Media blasts Ron Paul as a “kook”, “crackpot” or denouncing him as being unpatriotic, the experts support the Congressman and Presidential Candidates position that it is U.S. Foreign Policy that motivates Islamic terrorism towards the U.S.

North American Army Created Without OK by Congress

In a ceremony that received virtually no attention in the American media, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement Feb. 14 allowing the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis.


U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of USNORTHCOM, signs agreement Feb. 14, 2008, with Canadian Air Force Lt. Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command (USNORTHCOM photo)

The agreement, defined as a Civil Assistance Plan, was not submitted to Congress for approval, nor did Congress pass any law or treaty specifically authorizing this military agreement to combine the operations of the armed forces of the United States and Canada in the event of a wide range of domestic civil disturbances ranging from violent storms, to health epidemics, to civil riots or terrorist attacks.

What Changed?

Following this Primary Campaign has opened the eyes of a great many Americans to problems that range from Media Bias to Vote Fraud and has brought people to question the foundation of law this nation is built upon.

Ron Paul has clearly stated, several times, that he is running on a foreign policy platform that George Bush ran on during the 2000 campaign.  The Presidents election can be attributed, in part, to this position.  Only now we hear that “things have changed” because of 9/11.  Actually, 9/11 happened because foreign policy didn’t change.  After watching the video below you may wonder if 9/11 would have happened had President Bush lived up to his stated position instead of continuing on the course of intervention.  You may also want to ask yourself how it is that in one campaign a candidate can be elected on this foreign policy position and in another campaign a candidate is labeled a “kook” or “space cadet” for standing on the very same position.

Hear President Bush make the same statements that Ron Paul is currently making regarding Foreign Policy and realize that this was the reason for his election to Office of the President.   The Media does not hide its disdain for this position when put forth by Ron Paul but had no problem accepting it when put forth by Bush.  Why even bother turning on the T.V.??
