Council of Foreign Relations- Complicit in the Death of US Sovereignty

Posted on October 27, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info | Tags: , , , |

The Council on Foreign relations makes no secret of propelling us headlong and on purpose toward the end of our sovereignty. I have presented here items taken from their website. It is of the utmost importance you make yourself familiar with their agenda and the names of members who have taken us to this place and time. Members here are government officials, past and present, as well as business leaders, media figures, and many you do not know. Watchdogs will find this list valuable. After studying Agenda 21, Bilderburg, Trilateral Commission, and now Council on Foreign Relations, I can tell you without hesitation it is a David and Goliath battle for our freedom and our liberty. It’s us against them with no time to spare. Please call your representatives and senators and tell them you know and you will not permit them to give our sovereignty away. The joke is on us. It seems while we were working to be good citizens and good parents, they were laughing at us and plotting behind our back. The problem is we are now on the brink and about to fall into the crevasse of one world order. 

Items of interest found on their website: 

Crisis Guide:Global Governance Monitor

The link above includes a short, but interesting, video telling us the challenge of global governance has never been more imperative. We need to adapt current institutions or develop new ones, integrating new players. It says the interactive player will show you how they are doing in advancing the cause of global governance. 

The Program on International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is supported by a generous grant from the Robina Foundation. It aims to identify the institutional requirements for effective multilateral cooperation in the twenty-first century. The program is motivated by recognition that the architecture of global governance-largely reflecting the world as it existed in 1945-has not kept pace with fundamental changes in the international system. These shifts include the spread of transnational challenges, the rise of new powers, and the mounting influence of nonstate actors. Existing multilateral arrangements thus provide an inadequate foundation for addressing many of today’s most pressing threats and opportunities and for advancing U.S. national and broader global interests. 

Given these trends, U.S. policymakers and other interested actors require rigorous, independent analysis of current structures of multilateral cooperation, and of the promises and pitfalls of alternative institutional arrangements. The IIGG program meets these needs by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of existing multilateral institutions and proposing reforms tailored to new international circumstances. 

The IIGG fulfills its mandate by: 

·         Engaging CFR fellows in research on improving existing and building new frameworks to address specific global challenges-including climate change, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, transnational terrorism, and global health-and disseminating the research through books, articles, Council Special Reports, and other outlets;

·         Bringing together influential foreign policymakers, scholars, and CFR members to debate the merits of international regimes and frameworks at meetings in New York, Washington, DC, and other select cities;

·         Hosting roundtable series whose objectives are to inform the foreign policy community of today’s international governance challenges and breed inventive solutions to strengthen the world’s multilateral bodies; and

·         Providing a state-of-the-art Web presence as a resource to the wider foreign policy community on issues related to the future of global governance.

The attached concept note summarizes the rationale for the program on global governance, describes potential areas of research and policy engagement, and outlines the envisioned products and activities. We believe that the research and policy agenda outlined here constitutes a significant contribution to U.S. and international deliberations on the requirements for world order in the twenty-first century.

Corporate Membership

The Council on Foreign Relations is a national membership organization. There are two groups of members, life and term members. Term members must be between the ages of 30 and 36 at the time of their application, and term memberships are limited to five years. Here is a summary of the membership process:

  • A candidate for life membership must be nominated in writing by one Council member and supported by a minimum of three other individuals (maximum of four supporting letters). The supporting letters do not need to be from Council members, but letters from members are strongly encouraged.
  • A term membership candidate must be nominated by one Council member and supported by a minimum of two other individuals (maximum of three supporting letters). Candidates applying for the November 1, 2009 deadline must be between the ages of 30 and 36 on January 1, 2010.
  • Prospective candidates should contact the Membership Office to receive a link to the online application program, where they can enter biographical information and a curriculum vitae or chronological resume.
  • Each candidate will be prompted to enter the email addresses of his or her nominator and supporters. All nominators and supporters will be emailed a link to the website where letters can be posted securely and will only be visible to the Membership Committee. Letters will also be accepted via applications@cfr.org.
  • Membership is restricted to U.S. citizens (native-born or naturalized) and permanent residents who have applied to become citizens. If foreign born, a candidate must submit a statement that he or she has been naturalized or is a permanent resident who has made formal application for citizenship.
  • Deadlines for receipt of all materials for prospective life members are March 1 and October 1. For prospective term members, the deadline is November 1.

Members of the Council’s Board of Directors and Membership Committee are precluded from nominating, seconding, and writing supporting letters on any candidate’s behalf.

Life Membership

Quality, diversity, and balance are the key objectives sought by the Council in the composition of its membership. New members are named twice a year by the Board of Directors, which invites individuals to join based on recommendations by the Membership Committee. To be considered by the Membership Committee, candidates must be nominated for membership by a Council member. Please contact the Membership Office for a roster of current members.

In each round of membership selection, the Membership Committee considers significantly more candidates than there are vacancies; therefore, it is inevitable that the names of some candidates will appear before the committee on several occasions. Given the high level of the competition, some candidates may never be elected even though they may exemplify the individual qualifications outlined below.

For further information about applying for life membership, please contact Scott Bradbury, Program Coordinator, Membership Affairs, +1-212-434-9484 or sbradbury@cfr.org.

Term Membership

The Stephen M. Kellen Term Member Program encourages promising young leaders to engage in a sustained conversation on international affairs and U.S. foreign policy. The program allows younger members to interact with seasoned foreign-policy experts and participate in a wide variety of events designed especially for them. Each year a new class of term members, between the ages of 30 and 36, is elected to a five-year membership term. Committees of term members in New York and Washington, DC, advise the Council leadership on the programs that are of particular interest to younger members.

The term members enjoy a full range of activities, including events with high-profile speakers, an annual Term Member Conference, roundtables, trips to financial and governmental institutions around the country, and one week-long study trip abroad every two years.

For further information about applying for term membership, please contact M. Kristy Clark, Program Associate, Membership Affairs, +1-212-434-9491 or mclark@cfr.org.

Application Requirements

  • Completion of online application (nominee information and curriculum vitae or chronological resume).
  • Letter of nomination from a Council member.
  • Three supporting letters (two supporting letters for term membership applications).
  • The Membership office will accept letters through the online application program as well as via applications@cfr.org. Emailed letters must include electronic signature/letterhead or must be supplemented with a signed hardcopy sent via mail or fax.

Rules and Regulations to Keep in Mind

A candidate’s nominator bears the chief responsibility for seeing to it that filing deadlines for a candidacy are met and that all required documents are submitted to the Council’s Membership Office in a timely manner. Candidates and/or their nominators are responsible for securing seconding letters within the content guidelines below. Council members are advised to commit themselves to supporting a candidacy only when they can fairly meet the requirements of the process and the expectations of the candidates who depend on them for assistance. Please also note:

  • Council membership is restricted to United States citizens or permanent residents of the United States who have made application to become citizens. If foreign-born, the candidate must submit a statement that he or she has been naturalized or is a permanent resident who has made a formal application for citizenship.
  • Members of the Council’s Board of Directors and Membership Committee are precluded from nominating, seconding, and writing supporting letters on any candidate’s behalf.
  • A member who is a spouse, close relative (such as parent, brother or sister, cousin, etc.) or near in-law of a candidate may not nominate or second that candidate for membership in the Council. Members should also refrain from writing on behalf of clients.
  • Members should write only in support of candidates whom they know well. Additionally, members are encouraged to make comparative judgments about candidates, where appropriate. The Membership Committee also advises members to write no more than two letters per round (either one nominating letter and one seconding letter, or two seconding letters).
  • Council visiting fellows are prohibited from applying for membership until they have completed their fellowship tenure.
  • The seconding letters do not need to be from Council members, but letters from members are strongly encouraged. It is recommended that at least one letter from a current or former professional colleague be included.

News for 08/27/2009- The Great Liberal Narrative, ACLU Spies, The Storm Upon Us

ACLU: Spying for America’s Enemies by Michelle Malkin
http://cnsnews.com/ne…

For once, the American Civil Liberties Union has nothing bad to say about the latest case of secret domestic surveillance — because it is the ACLU that committed the spying. Last week, The Washington Post reported on a new Justice Department inquiry into photographs of undercover CIA officials and other intelligence personnel taken by ACLU-sponsored researchers assisting the defense team of Guantanamo Bay detainees. According to the report, the pictures of covert American CIA officers — “in some cases surreptitiously taken outside their homes” — were shown to jihadi suspects tied to the 9/11 attacks in order to identify the interrogators. The ACLU undertook the so-called “John Adams Project” with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers — last seen crusading for convicted jihadi assistant Lynne Stewart. She’s the far-left lawyer who helped sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, convicted 1993 World Trade Center bombing and N.Y. landmark bombing plot mastermind, smuggle coded messages of Islamic violence to outside followers in violation of an explicit pledge to abide by her client’s court-ordered isolation. The ACLU’s team used lists and data from “human rights groups,” European researchers and news organizations that were involved in “(t)racking international CIA-chartered flights” and monitoring hotel phone records. Working from a witch-hunt list of 45 CIA employees, the ACLU team tailed and photographed agency employees or obtained other photos from public records. And then they showed the images to suspected al-Qaida operatives implicated in murdering 3,000 innocent men, women and children on American soil. Where is the concern for the safety of these American officers and their families? Where’s the outrage from all the indignant supporters of former CIA agent Valerie Plame, whose name was leaked by Bush State Department official Richard Armitage to the late Robert Novak? Lefties swung their nooses for years over the disclosure, citing federal laws prohibiting the sharing of classified information and proscribing anyone from unauthorized exposure of undercover intelligence agents.

The Storm Upon Us from Canada Free Press
http://canadafreepres…

“Find out just what the people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.” — Frederick Douglass, civil rights activist, (circa 1818-1895) One of three possible scenarios is currently being played out in the United States.

The first option, is simply that the Obama Administration is the most corrupt, dishonest, and inept Administration that America has ever been burdened with. That is the “best case” scenario. Unfortunately, this is the option that I think least likely. The second option, is that the Obama Administration despises individual freedom, capitalism, free-enterprise, and is hell-bent on transforming the United States into a fascist/communist collective—a regime that will be run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite.That actually sounds more plausible to me. The third option is, that the Obama Administration is part of a global restructuring process (New World Order), in which the world will be turned into a fascist/communist collective—run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite. My guess is—take your pick between options two and three. If you’re surprised by my analysis, then you haven’t been paying attention to what has happened, and is happening, to the United States. Let me roll out some facts and figures for you. The SEIU (Service Employees International Union) is run by Andy Stern, a militant Far-Left thug, and Anna Burger, another Far-Left radical. The SEIU has increased its size and power through, arm-twisting intimidation tactics, and other nefarious means. Two years ago Obama said before an SEIU rally, “I’ve spent my entire adult life working with SEIU.” That is not good news. Once you’ve looked into the corruption, ruthlessness, and Far-Left agenda of the SEIU leadership, you will know that it is not good news at all. Obama has appointed two stalwart friends of SEIU to high level positions: Kathleen Selibus (D-Kansas) as head of the Department of Health and Human Services, and Hilda Solis to head the Department of Labor. The SEIU currently has over 2 million members. most of them are essentially unwilling inductees, but many are “true believers.” Let’s discuss ACORN. Wade Rathke, who “cut his teeth” in the Far-Left radical group SDS in the 1960s, founded ACORN, and also SEIU Local 100. These and numerous other Far-Left groups under the Rathke “umbrella” are funded by our taxpayer dollars. According to the “Sweetness and Ligh” website: “ACORN claims more than 400,000 dues-paying member families, and more than 1,200 chapters in 110 U.S. cities.” And lets not forget the hundreds of “advocacy groups” connected with Acorn: groups such as the WFP (Working Families Party),—which, according to an Associated Press report, was created in 1998 to help push the Democratic Party toward the left.” Many of our taxpayer dollars are funneled to various Far-Left organizations which, after the “bosses” get their cut, distribute the money among hundreds, possibly thousands, of groups which advocate the destruction of the United States as a free republic, and the installation of a welfare collective. That’s not hyperbole folks. It’s a con game that is going on, and has been going on for years—with the assistance of radical leftist foundations like Arca, and the Tides Foundation. Some deal, huh? Collect the money earned by some bourgeois chump, and then spend your time trying to destroy the system that enabled the chump to make the money in the first place. Sweet! My point here is that there are already a number of available thugs in place, should the Obama Administration need them. And we shouldn’t forget AmeriCorp, and the other paramilitary groups getting ready to “muscle up.” Although I’ve been talking exclusively about the Far-Left influence, I don’t want to be remiss, and forget to mention that greed, corruption, and duplicity are non-partisan vices. The right-wing has its share of snakes in the grass as well.


In Honor of 09/11, Please Fly the Flag

On Friday, September 11th, 2009, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States. Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this eighth anniversary of one of our country’s worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms. In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn’t take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.

News for 08/21/2009- Free Speech, Health Care Freedom Plan, Proof Obama Lies, GE Buys Influence

Posted on August 21, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Here’s a Video YOU Just Have To See!

http://www.redstate.com/bs/2009/08/20/its-pretty-bad-when-you-have-air-america-calling-you-a-liar-mr-president/

It’s pretty bad when Air America calls the President a liar. Here is what he said about big pharma in the campaign and what he DID last week. Amazing!

SUPPORT “WHOLE FOODS” STORES IF YOU LOVE FREE SPEECH from Fox News
http://www.foxnews.co…

18,000 people on Facebook are calling for a boycott of the nationwide grocery store chain Whole Foods. It has to do with the debate over health care. Now, apparently, the CEO of Whole Foods who says we do need health care reform is not as liberal as some of his progressive clientele. John Mackey, who is the CEO of Whole Food who has been running the company, started the company in Austin Texas, about 30 years. In an op-ed in the WSJ, he said here are eight ideas as a successful CEO that I have, including tort reform, allowing insurers cross state lines, self-directed ideas. And yet he is vilified by some of the more liberal followers out there of the president’s plan. The individuals who signed up to boycott are waging war against Whole Foods. They are calling him a right-wing zealot.
Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, in 2007,said he had enough money to live comfortably, cut his salary down to $1 a year, and donated all of the proceeds from his stock option to charity. This does not sound like a guy who wants to stick it to the poor when it comes to health care. He had a different idea, and that was what was in the “Wall Street Journal.” He is a self-described libertarian. And I do not know if that was angered some people. Not only was he taking $1, but he pushed this through, Greta, a $100,000 need-based fund for Whole Foods workers. Heretofore this has been considered a relatively progressive company. Now he comes out and says the government-run plan is not the way to go. And he is absolutely being slaughtered on the left side of the blogosphere. He employs thousands of people. So I propose a reverse boycott. Everyone go to Whole Foods.

If you would like to support Mr. Mackey, or free speech, sign up on the support Whole Foods Facebook page at http://www.facebook.c…

Jim DeMint’s Health Care Plan – This should be what we are discussing! Write your reps today!

http://demint.senate….

All Americans should have a health insurance plan that they can afford, own, and keep – that government can never take over or take away. No American should be forced into a government-run system that limits their choices and rations their care.” – Sen. Jim DeMint

The Health Care Freedom Plan would allow every American access to health insurance and according to a study by the Heritage Foundation, would cover 22.4 million currently uninsured Americans within the five years.

Click here for a one-page summary of the bill.
Click here for a letter of support from Americans for Tax Reform, “This will likely be the best free-market alternative to government health care offered this Congress, and I would encourage all senators to co-sponsor this excellent legislation.”
Click here to read Senator DeMint’s Op-Ed “Let’s Cut the Health Care Red Tape” from Forbes.com

The Health Care Freedom Plan:

Protects the right of Americans to keep their employer-based plan if they so choose.

Provides Americans without employer-based health insurance with vouchers of $2000 for individuals and $5000 for families to purchase health insurance.

Allows Americans with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) to use their HSA funds to pay for insurance premiums, encouraging employers to contribute to their employees’ HSAs.

Creates a national market for health insurance by allowing individuals to purchase health insurance plans in any state.

Provides block grants to states to develop innovative models that ensure affordable health insurance coverage for Americans with pre-existing health conditions.

Reduces predatory and frivolous malpractice lawsuits against physicians and hospitals.

Assures that every health care consumer has access to price information prior to treatment so they can make informed decisio about their care.

Repeals financial bailouts (TARP) to fund health care vouchers.

Cap and Trade: Organized Crime’s Best Friend from Financial Times
http://www.ft.com/cms…

Fraud investigators arrested nine people on Wednesday over a suspected £38m carbon credit trading scam in one of the clearest signs yet of criminals targeting international schemes to combat climate change. More than 100 Revenue & Customs officers raided dozens of properties in the south of England over an alleged cross-border fraud to evade value added tax, just weeks after the Treasury imposed emergency rules in an effort to curb the problem. Trading in carbon credits – allowances for companies to produce greenhouse gases – has been dogged by problems, from legal but ethically dubious practices to alleged scams involving fictitious products. Anand Doobay, a partner at Peters & Peters, a City-based law firm specialising in financial crime, said the ethereal nature of the fast-expanding multi-billion dollar international market in carbon credits had made them an attractive target for graft: “There is an increasing amount of fraud connected with them as a commodity. It’s trading with something that’s intangible, and that isn’t regulated in the way some other commodities are.”

GE seeks support for GE-minded politicians
http://canadafreepres…

GEPAC issued the following letter to GE employees soliciting contributions so that it can support politicians who make money for the company, including with respect to the Waxman-Markey climate bill, financial services reform and military spending.
…The intersection between GE’s interests and government action is clearer than ever. GEPAC is an important tool that enables GE employees to collectively help support candidates who share the values and goals of GE. While we must continue to engage elected officials to help them better understand our various businesses and how legislation affects our Company and our customers, we must also make sure that candidates who share GE’s values and goals get elected to office.

Health Care Reform That Actually Works from American Thinker

“Where’s the Republican plan?” It’s one of the red herrings that apologists for Obamacare pull out of their bag of cliched talking points when pressed to justify Democrats’ attempt to grab control of 18% of the nation’s economy.
