Business ceases to become business when it becomes engaged in political decision making regardless of whether the decisions concern foreign or domestic policy. It becomes a fifth column that seeks absolute control. A person would have to be completely brain dead not to see that this is what has happened to the United States. It's being run by a fifth column that is not even American.
The U.S. was set on this course by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Harry Truman with the creation of the United Nations (1945) and then the Marshall Plan (1948) that was authorized by the Congress under the name European Recovery program. The objective was to provide assistance to rebuild Europe – supposedly. What it actually turns out to have been was the continuation of war fought on a different battlefield within a different context – but it was still war for domination and control. It is war without a moral foundation and the strategists have no allegiance to our country, our people, our history, culture or heritage.
On January 21, 2015, the Senate Foreign Relations held a hearing on national security threats. Two former National Security Advisors, Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski testified. The video below is an excerpt of the testimony given by Brent Scowcroft. He did define the problem but he skipped over the era of the Marshall Plan going right from creation of the United Nations to globalization in the modern context. Why he did that will become apparent below but aside from that, what he had to say was important to hear.
The Westphalian system of nation-states was the result of a peace treaty signed in 1648 among European monarchs and the Holy Roman Emperor. It was an agreement to establish and recognize distinct jurisdictions bounded geographically as independent and sovereign territories which we call states (nation-states).
When Brent Scowcroft said, "We have been at the forefront in liberalizing the Westphalian system in making a more just world for all", what he was talking about was global "governance" with the United Nations at the center. They entangled us in the attack on sovereignty behind the cover of the Marshall Plan for economic recovery of Europe following World War II. In the early years, this was a covert operation of the U.S. State Department known to us now through declassified U.S. State Department documents found in the files of Clark Clifford.
I will go into more detail on this in subsequent writings, but for the moment, this brief overview will have to suffice.
Josef Retinger, a polish ex-pat living in London was the coordinator of the meetings of the governments in exile during World War II. Following the war, Retinger’s objective was to create a United States of Europe. Toward that end, he approached Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands with the suggestion regular informal meetings among power brokers. Their first meeting was at the Bilderberg Hotel Oosterbeek Holland in 1954. The people who attend the meetings which are still going on to this day, have been dubbed The Bilderberg Group.
The reason for bringing up the Bilderberg Group is because U.S. Senator Jacob Javits attended a Bilderberg Group meeting in Williamsburg, VA in 1964 and he placed into the Congressional Record, information about the group. The following is the location in the record: Congressional Record, Volume 110, Part 6, April 11, 1964, pp. 7684-7685. The most important part of the report from my point of view is the list of attendees: among which are the following:
Congressman Gerald FordFrom those names on the list – plus loads of other research, it's a simple matter of deduction that the strategy for "softening sovereignty" as Brent Scowcroft dubbed it, was through agreements that were deceptively presented to the public as trade agreements successively building one on top of the other over time to form what is again a deception in labeling, a common market which ultimately is replaced by a constitution as in Europe which created the European Union. (Note: which is also why the people who are calling for a constitutional convention should not be trusted). Succinctly, the "free trade" agreements were never about trade, they were about breaking American sovereignty to make way for a common market and ultimately, a North American Union.

Now I have to give you some drive-by history because I'm learning as I'm going –
The evolution of governments in Europe and Asia began as religious institutions that controlled territory.
The following is a picture of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire was and is Muslim. At its peak, it was ruled by a Caliph or Imam with the distinction being based on tribe or sect (not sure which). Regardless, the leader of the empire was also the religious leader.
This picture is of the Holy Roman Empire. The names of the countries printed on the map were added for perspective but were not formed as countries per se at the time.
The jurisdictions of the HRE were ruled by Kings, Emperors and Princes. Some of the jurisdictions were "free imperial cities". The head of the Holy Roman Empire was obviously the Pope of the Catholic Church.
The image below is of the British Empire that was reconstituted as voluntary members of the Commonwealth of Nations which is comprised of former British Dominions and Colonies. The Commonwealth was established in 1949. A map of the Commonwealth was as close as I could find to a map of the empire but it wouldn’t be accurate of the roughly 1650 timeframe of the other maps. For one thing, the east coast of the United States would be on the British Empire map.
The following is a rough list of the events that caused Britain to break away from the Holy Roman Empire and to establish the Church of England (i.e. Anglican Church).
1529: Henry VIII accepts the Protestant Reformation
1533: Henry VIII marries Anne Boleyn and is excommunicated by Pope Clement VII
1534: Henry VIII declares himself supreme head of the Church of England
1553: Mary I, daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, becomes queen of England and returns England to Catholicism, while hundreds of Protestants are burned at the stakes
1558: Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, becomes queen of England and England becomes Protestant again and Catholics are persecuted
1563: The Anglican Church is officially founded (on predestination and the redeeming power of faith alone)
To this day, the Queen of England (British Monarch) is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England…Defender of the Faith. Somewhat facetiously, one might even say that she's the Popette of the Great Britain and the Commonwealth of Nations.
By the late 1950's, the business of the Marshall Plan – rebuilding Europe while subverting their sovereignty to form the European Union (empire) was basically finished – or at least could no longer be justified. Beginning in the early 1960's, they began to use the term economic development rather than rebuilding and they began using trade agreements to negotiate non-tariff related changes that impacted our domestic law and economy.
The first trade round completed under this new cover story was the Kennedy Round that was for Operation Pan America known to the public as the Alliance for Progress. What was unknown at the time, was that the real purpose and real objective was to undermine the sovereignty of the United States and Latin American for the purpose of creation of the Free Trade Area of the Americas an empire by a contract (international law by agreement) or as I've called it other places, Empire of the Black Robes.
It's safe to say that this plan was a conspiracy carried out by leaders of the world without the knowledge or consent of the affected populations, the point of which is to say that leaders of the Middle Eastern countries knew or learned of the plan at some point. Knowledge of the plan for a Middle Eastern Free Trade Area (MEFTA) revived the dreams of restoration of the Ottoman Empire because the options were to be subjugated under western law in the Empire of the Black Robes or to be ruled as they had been traditionally ruled, by a religious leader – a Caliph or Imam.
The bigger problem is that Islam is a nation without a state. It’s a religion and a political movement combined. When some of the leaders of Islamic countries called for a global jihad (holy war), all Muslims are obligated under Islamic law to answer the call.
On January 24, 2015, Newt Gingrich spoke at the Iowa Freedom Summit. It was the first time I've heard an American leader speak with enough clarity that the listener can actually make sense of what’s going on in our country. The entire speech can be heard on C-Span but the video below has the significant excerpts.
Newt Gingrich - Iowa Freedom Conference
The intentional breaking down of the Westphalian nation-state system to create a global system of free movement of goods, services and people across borders has opened us up for a slow-walking invasion by Muslims who have global jihad in their minds. Even if full-blown war doesn't break out, they will simply overwhelm us unless we rise to break this sovereignty-destroying international system of "free trade" under the WTO. In the mean time, we cannot allow Muslims to use our own legal system against us. When they say "civil rights"… we say NO… our civilization rights trump your civil rights – and mean it because the future of our country depends on it.
According to an article in World Net Daily, there is a plan to bring in 75,000 Syrian Muslims within the next five years.

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras unveils cabinet of mavericks and visionaries
New finance minister says debt negotiations will not continue with hated troika of technocrats representing foreign lenders

Tuesday 27 January 2015
Greece’s prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, has lined up a formidable coterie of academics, human rights advocates, mavericks and visionaries to participate in Europe's first anti-austerity government.
Displaying few signs of backing down from pledges to dismantle punitive belt-tightening measures at the heart of the debt-choked country's international rescue programme, the leftwing radical put together a 40-strong cabinet clearly aimed at challenging Athens’s creditors.
In a taste of what lies ahead, Yanis Varoufakis, the flamboyant new finance minister, said on his way to the government's swearing-in ceremony that negotiations would not continue with the hated troika of officials representing foreign lenders.
"They have already begun but not with the troika," said Varoufakis, an economist who has disseminated his anti-orthodox views through blogs and tweets almost daily since the debt crisis exploded in Athens in late 2009 – something he promised on Tuesday to continue to do. "The time to put up or shut up has, I have been told, arrived," he wrote on his blog. "My plan is to defy such advice."
Tsipras’s Syriza party, which emerged as the winner of snap polls on Sunday, has been adamant that it will deal only with governments, and not the technocrats that represent the EU, ECB and IMF. Varoufakis is to represent Greece at eurozone meetings.
Setting its stamp on the new era, the cabinet took the oath of office in two separate ceremonies, with some sworn in during a religious service but most breaking with tradition to conduct their investiture before the president, Karolos Papoulias.
Tsipras, an avowed atheist, was sworn in by Papoulias on Monday. At 40 he is Athens's youngest postwar prime minister.
After falling two seats short of attaining a 151-seat majority in Greece's 300-seat parliament, Syriza was forced into a coalition with the populist rightwing Independent Greeks party.
The junior partner is openly Eurosceptic and withering of the way international creditors have turned Greece into an "occupied zone, a debt colony". Its leader, Panos Kammenos, who has declared that Europe is governed by "German neo-Nazis", assumes the helm of the defence ministry.
Tsipras acted on pledges to pare back government with the establishment of 10 ministries and four super-ministries amalgamating different portfolios, starkly illuminating the failure of previous Greek governments to act on promises to reform ministry structures.
Giorgos Stathakis, a political economics professor, took over the development portfolio, a super-ministry that includes oversight of tourism, transport and shipping, the country's biggest industries.
Panaghiotis Kouroublis, who is blind, was made health minister, becoming the first Greek politician with a disability to hold public office.
Euclid Tsakalotos, a British-trained economist who rose out of the anti-globalisation movement, became deputy minister in charge of international economic relations.
Panaghiotis Lafazanis, a Marxist who heads Syriza's far-left faction, was put in charge of the super-ministry incorporating energy, industry and environmental affairs. He has openly opposed any concessions being made with Greece's creditors when stalled negotiations over completing the country's current bailout programme resume.
Syriza says its priorities will be to cancel austerity and renegotiate the country's "unsustainable" €320bn (£238bn)debt load. With time now of the essence – Athens's rescue funds expire at the end of February – reaction ranged from trepidation to applause. Greek markets endured a second day of turmoil on Tuesday, with bank shares diving and investors fearing that the anti-bailout government might be set on a collision course with creditors.
The government's plan to negotiate a new debt deal has already run into resistance from its eurozone peers, which fear that allowing Athens to write off some of its obligations would encourage other troubled countries such as Spain and Ireland to seek similar relief.
Germany’s finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble, on Tuesday dismissed assertions that Greece's plight was due to the savage austerity measures imposed by Europe over the past five years in return for €240bn in bailout funds.
"The people of Greece are suffering more than people elsewhere in Europe," he said. "Not because of demands from Brussels or the ECB, but because of the failure of Greek political elites over decades." The pressure on the Tsipras government to honour the terms of the bailout deals struck by the previous two Greek governments – terms the new prime minister in Athens has threatened to repudiate – was quite correct, Schäuble declared.
“The demands on Greece are in line with the ECB's mandate. They are fully legitimate." He said European solidarity with countries in economic and financial distress was no substitute for those countries having to decide how to act themselves. "Solidarity cannot replace necessary decisions by member states."
Deploying a tactic he commonly uses when opposing a policy switch, Schäuble warned that any shift would require a renegotiation of EU treaties. "I witness a growing call from a number of member states to stick to the legal framework that is in place now," he said. “Changing the rule book would require a huge struggle to get the people on board in Germany, but also in other member states."
Observers welcomed the Syriza-led government's administrative reforms and its decision to appoint a minister whose writ will be to crack down on widespread tax evasion and corruption in the upper echelons of society. "It sends clear messages of the new government's appetite to deal with corruption and … problems of the Greek state," said George Kyris, a lecturer at Birmingham University.
But many also fear that the government is headed for confrontation with the bodies that have kept the insolvent Greek economy afloat. "It includes neo-Stalinists and anti-orthodox economists with little idea how to deal with Europe," said Prof Dimitirs Keridis, a political scientist at Panteion University, Athens. "I am afraid that it presages confrontation, but perhaps that is what Tsipras wants."
The radicals have dismissed criticism that they will not be up to the task of governance. Speaking to the Guardian recently, Tsakalotos said there would never be a good time for the leftists to assume power in a political world that had moved increasingly to the right.
"We would always face market pressure and opposition," said the Oxford-educated academic, who will be responsible for attracting badly needed foreign investment. "Any difficulty that we might face should make us work harder, plan more thoroughly, become more decisive."
To the victor the spoils? Not in Athens, where the new prime minister arrived at his official residence on Monday night to discover that computers, paperwork and even the toiletries had been removed by the outgoing administration.
Shortly after he was sworn in, Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras found himself inside the Maximos Mansion without some basic necessities. "They took everything," he said. "I was looking for an hour to find soap."
Traditionally, a defeated Greek prime minister will wait until their successor has been anointed to wish them well. But Antonis Samaras was in such a rush to go that he even failed to leave the Wi-Fi password.
"We sit in the dark. We have no internet, no email, no way to communicate with each other," one staffer told Germany’s Der Spiegel.It took until Tuesday evening for Tsipras to get his hands on the official prime ministerial Twitter account. In his first tweet, he repeated the oath he took 24 hours earlier, pledging to uphold the constitution and always serve the interests of the Greek people.
