Bodies In WTC 7: Barry Jennings Interview Demolishes Official 9/11 Version

It is obvious watching the BBC’s trailer of its "The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 - The Third Tower," set to air on Sunday, 6 July, that "Auntie Beeb" will attempt to make it appear Building 7 at the WTC complex came down as a result of fire (see trailer below). In other words, it appears the BBC will push — and defend — the government explanation hastily cooked up after attention was focused on the mysterious collapse by researchers, a collapse diligently ignored by the 9/11 Commission in its final report, or that is to say its final whitewash.





The Barry Jennings interview with an introduction by Jason Bermas. The clip here will appear in Bermas’ upcoming documentary, Fabled Enemies.

The BBC interviewed Dylan Avery, writer and director of the documentary "Loose Change," and during the interview the BBC disputed Avery’s claim that there were dead bodies in the lobby of Building 7 as the result of an explosion prior to the collapse of either WTC buildings. In order to make his point, Dylan showed the BBC video footage of one Barry Jennings, the New York City Housing Authority worker who made the claim of dead bodies strewn in the rubble. The Jennings interview included here was to appear in Loose Change, but Mr. Jennings had reservations after receiving threatening phone calls. He was worried about losing his job and requested the interview not be included.

Jennings, and Mike Hess, New York’s corporation counsel and a good buddy of then mayor Rudolph Giuliani, went to the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) on the 23rd floor of WTC 7, but when they arrived found the office evacuated, a situation at odds with the whitewash report. "After the South Tower was hit [at 9:03], OEM senior leadership decided to remain in its ‘bunker’ and continue conducting operations, even though all civilians had been evacuated from 7 WTC," the report states (Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, pp. 305). The whitewash commission’s description runs counter to a report published in The London Independent on September 13, 2001, indicating that Jennings and Hess arrived at the OEM by the time the South Tower was hit, indicating the center was evacuated earlier than officially claimed.







The BBC trailer for "The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 — The Third Tower."


According to Hess, when they used the stairs — the elevator was inoperable — to go down to the eighth floor, “there was an explosion” and they were “trapped on the eighth floor with smoke, thick smoke, all around us, for about an hour and a half.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) claims the two men went down the stairs after 9:59, when the first collapse occurred, and were trapped around the time the second tower collapsed at 10:28, a claim at odds with the version published in the London Independent. "After the second plane hit they scrambled downstairs to the lobby, or what was left of it. ‘I looked around, the lobby was gone. It looked like hell,’ Mr Jennings said."

In the video here, Jennings says the lobby of WTC 7 was so destroyed he did not recognize it as such, it was "total ruins," and the fireman escorting him instructed Jennings and Hess not to look down because "we were stepping over [dead] people… and you know you can feel when you are stepping over people." Jennings’ story indicates, contrary to the official version of events, that a bomb or bombs had gone off in WTC 7, well before either WTC buildings collapsed (the south tower collapsed at 9:59 a.m. and the north tower followed at 10:28 a.m.). For the government and the corporate media, the Jennings narrative is problematic, to say the least.

As the BBC’s role is to obfuscate what really happened at WTC 7 and push the official version, now increasingly under scrutiny, we can expect the world’s largest media corporation to ignore Jennings’ narrative, recorded last year by Avery and Loose Change co-creator, Jason Bermas.

"This is vital information because it is in direct conflict with the official claim that no one was killed inside building 7. The 9/11 Commission report did not even mention building, yet here we have a key witness who told them he saw dead people inside the building after explosions had gutted the lower level," wrote Steve Watson on June 19, 2007.

What makes all this information even more explosive is the fact that this individual [now revealed to be Barry Jennings] was interviewed by the 9/11 Commission as they conducted their so called investigation.

The fact that the building was not even mentioned in the report in light of this information thus becomes chilling and indicates that officials have lied in stating that they have not come into contact with evidence of explosive devices within the buildings.

Avery and Bermas successfully contacted the individual after discovering a TV interview he did on 9/11 while they were trawling through news footage from the day in research for the Final Cut.





As this video documents, there were bombs in the buildings, a fact scrubbed from the official whitewash narrative, essentially a fairy tale.

Jennings’ description of dead bodies in the bombed out lobby of WTC 7 underscores multiple accounts of bombs in the buildings, from firefighters, law enforcement officers, and other extremely credible witnesses, including the New York Fire Department Chief of Safety, the Assistant Fire Commissioner, and an FBI agent quoted by USA Today (see video at left). For a comprehensive review of these accounts and many others, see Firefighters and law enforcement officers believe that bombs inside the WTC brought down the buildings on the Global Research site.

It will be interesting to see how the BBC handles this aspect of the WTC 7 collapse. More than likely, they will ignore Avery’s evidence and push the ludicrous fairy tale that fire so weakened the building it had to be "pulled," as Larry Silverstein so infamously claimed in the PBS’ propaganda piece, "America Rebuilds." As should be obvious to all who pay attention, the textbook demolition of WTC 7 undermines the entire official fairy tale of what happened on the morning of September 11, 2001, and that is why it was not included in the whitewash commission’s report, although NIST has since lamely attempted to blame the collapse on the improbable failure of a single column that supposedly lead to the subsequent failure of the building’s 27 core columns, precipitating a total collapse.

Fairy tales aside, it should be obvious what happened to WTC 7 — it was fitted with a bomb or bombs and was intended to collapse at approximately the same time as the other buildings. This plan failed miserably and the September 11 conspirators had no choice but to bring the building down late in the afternoon — to "pull it," as Silverstein explained — and hurriedly cobble together a fantastic and unbelievable explanation that fire had weakened the steel frame structure and precipitated its collapse.

Mr. Jennings story demolishes the official fairy tale version and it will be interesting to see how the BBC and the corporate media deal with his story. More than likely, they will continue to ignore the facts — the WTC buildings were brought down through demolition, not as a result of fire, and Mr. Jennings’ story serves as a capstone in the ongoing effort to bring out the truth and ultimately bring to justice the perpetrators.

The World In 2025, According To The National Intelligence Council

Daniel Taylor / Old Thinker News | June 27, 2008


Life extension technology, artificial intelligence, and an expansive "internet of things" are just a few of the topics that the latest report from the National Intelligence Council, "Disruptive Civil Technologies - Six Technologies with Potential Impacts on US Interests out to 2025".
Earlier reports from the CIA and the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense have carried similar themes. The December 2000 CIA report, Global Trends 2015 stated that nation’s borders would weaken in the process of globalization, with an elite reaping the benefits, "Scenario Two: Pernicious Globalization Global elites thrive, but the majority of the world’s population fails to benefit from globalization… migration becomes a major source of interstate tension… Internal conflicts increase, fueled by frustrated expectations, inequities, and heightened communal tensions…" The MoD strategic trends 2007-2036
report covers life extension technologies, stating that a divide may rise between those who can afford to extend their lifespan, such as dictatorial rulers, "Developments in genetics might allow treatment of the symptoms of ageing and this would result in greatly increased life expectancy for those who could afford it. The divide between those that could afford to ‘buy longevity’ and those that could not, could aggravate perceived global inequality. Dictatorial or despotic rulers could potentially also ‘buy longevity’, prolonging their regimes and international security risks." The National Intelligence Council’s
latest report outlines trends in technology that will shape the world to come in 2025. Among the technologies covered is the development of the Internet of Things. The Internet of things, also often referred to as "ubiquitous computing" is currently being tested and showcased in South Korea, where the technology developers admit that there are less expectations of privacy. The Internet of Things (IoT) will enable the tracking and tracing of everyday objects
and people in a vast network similar to the internet. Ultimately, the "U-City" model of South Korea will be exported world-wide. PR campaigns for the U-City are already underway in the United States. Watch this ABC News clip as the "convenience" of the technology is emphasized:

The NIC report on the internet of things states that by 2010, the ability for "Teleoperation and telepresence: ability to monitory and control distant objects" will be achieved. Among the various goals of the Internet of Things technology developers include: "Sensor networks need not be connected to the Internet and indeed often reside in remote sites, vehicles, and buildings having no Internet connection. Smart dust is a term that some have used to express a vision of tiny, wireless-connected sensors; more recently, others use the term to describe any of several technologies that range from the size of a pack of gum to a pack of
cigarettes, and that are widely available to system developers. Ubiquitous positioning describes technologies for locating objects that may reside anywhere, including indoors and underground locations where satellite signals may be unavailable or otherwise inadequate. Biometrics enables technology to recognize people and other living things, rather than inanimate objects. Connected everyday objects could recognize authorized users by means of fingerprint, voiceprint, iris scan, or other biometric technology." The use of RFID tags embedded in everyday objects is the standard approach to achieving the internet of things vision. But, perhaps ominously, technology is being developed that would actually eliminate the need for RFID tags, while still allowing for the tracking of objects and people with the same efficiency. "Machine Vision", as the NIC report states, "…could be a channel for delivering the same type of information that RFIDs enable." "Machine vision is
an approach to the IoT that can monitor objects having no onboard sensors,
controllers, or wireless interfaces. For example, some developers propose
that cameras on typical cell phones can capture images of objects; using
image-processing algorithms, distant servers can identify such objects
and report information about them. In other words, machine vision could
be a channel for delivering the same type of information that RFIDs
enable." The surveillance element of this
technology will allow for "…everyday objects to be channels for
surveillance, consumer surveys, measuring environmental-quality benchmarks,
and any other continuously changing dimension of the world that people
find valuable to track." There can be little doubt
that a surveillance grid has been erected and is expanding every day.
The next upgrade to this tracking grid will undoubtedly be spun with a
"consumer convenience" approach.

Satanic Technological Enslavement Is All Around Us

Technological Enslavement Is All Around Us

Lee Rogers / Rogue Government | June 26, 2008

The technological enslavement grid is getting increasingly more insane and most people don’t even care. Apparently most people and Americans especially like being slaves just as long as they are told that they are free. First off, we have Mothers Against Drunk Driving an organization with a long track record of endorsing anti-freedom policies advocating that breathalyzers should be included in every automobile by 2012 under the guise of drunk driving prevention. Microsoft, Google, EBay among others have helped found an organization called the Information Card Foundation whose goal is to create a driver’s license styled identification card that will be required for users to go online. The U.S. Senate is set to pass a bank bailout bill that will include a provision in the legislation that will require almost all online financial transactions to be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Artificially intelligent surveillance cameras are being developed and they even want to forcibly implant microchips in prisoners. There is no question that this system the establishment is setting up represents nothing short of total enslavement and despotism.

First off, what sane person would advocate having breathalyzers in every automobile or purchase a vehicle that has such a ridiculous feature? Evidently the Nazis with Mothers Against Drunk Driving think that people should be guilty until proven innocent by endorsing such a draconian measure. Let’s face it, driving under the influence laws are ridiculous to begin with because if someone drives recklessly and kills a bunch of people, what difference does it make if that person was drunk or not? If someone drives recklessly and kills people it is irrelevant if they were drunk, smoking pot, snorting cocaine or high on PCP when they killed those people. The bottom line is that if people engage in behavior that endangers the liberty and lives of others than they should be prosecuted under laws such as reckless driving, public endangerment, vehicular homicide and others. There are already numerous driving under the influence laws on the books and it has done nothing to eliminate drunk driving accidents on the road. At all times a small segment of the population will engage in reckless behavior regardless of how many laws are on the books. Does it make sense to punish everyone just because there is a small segment of people who engage in dangerous behavior? Of course it doesn’t, and putting breathalyzer devices in everyone’s car is completely unnecessary and a total invasion of privacy. Not only that, but the breathalyzer devices won’t be able to detect if the driver is on any number of other substances. What if the drunk driver gets somebody else to blow into the breathalyzer device for them? The whole idea is ridiculous and Mothers Against Drunk Driving should seriously re-think their endorsement of this enslavement agenda.

Moving on to the next subject of technological enslavement, Google and Microsoft are amongst a handful of companies already working on the creation of a driver’s license styled identification card that will be required for Internet access. According to a NY Times report, it appears as if they will sell this system as a way to eliminate multiple online passwords and identity theft. Of course, these are not the true purposes of these identification cards. Its real purpose is to centralize power over who can access the Internet and who can’t. It will also be used as a way to more easily track and trace people’s online activity. There’s no reason to have a centralized identification system that grants or denies online access and people need to resist the adoption of such a control grid. This whole agenda is entirely ridiculous, but when you consider that the government is seeking to make it mandatory for all online transactions to be reported to the IRS, it is easy to see that this is just part and parcel of a larger program.

It has also come out that France is planning a tax on the Internet to supplement other online enslavement measures that are pending such as banning people from online access if they download unauthorized music or movie files and censoring speech the government says is hateful. These measures are nothing compared to the control grid that will be put into place when Internet2 is finally unleashed. Internet2 which is being run by big universities, government agencies and multinational corporations is a consortium attempting to setup the next-generation Internet. Internet2 will have speeds up to 10,000 times faster than current broadband speeds, be capable of transmitting high quality feature length films in seconds and even support the transmission of holographic images. Although these features sound great, Internet2 will be an online enslavement grid where all activity will be collected and data mined.

All of this is crazy enough, but it has also come out that the British are set to implement a program to implant prisoners with microchips to keep track of them. It is complete insanity. No human being should have a microchip forcibly implanted inside of them even if they have committed a crime. It is simply incredible that this is happening and only a few years ago you’d be labeled an insane person for talking about people being forcibly implanted with microchips.

Finally, CCTV cameras are still being setup everywhere. Amazingly there is now one CCTV camera for every fourteen British citizens in the United Kingdom. It doesn’t matter that there have been numerous articles covering how these cameras do not prevent crime. Governments are just setting up cameras everywhere not to keep the general public safe, but to make people think that they are being watched. They are even developing cameras that will use forms of artificial intelligence. This is all part of the technological enslavement system and enslaving the population of the world is at the very heart of the New World Order’s agenda.

This control grid that is being setup is completely unacceptable and needs to be resisted. It is not acceptable to have breathalyzer devices being put into every single automobile, nor is it acceptable to microchip people or to implement draconian measures of control over the Internet. Much of this might sound like science fiction to the average brainwashed American who drinks beer, takes psychotropic drugs, eats genetically modified food and drools over themselves while they watch ball games all day, but this information is documented and it is happening. Free humanity better start fighting back so this oligarchy that is using technology and scientific methods of control to enslave mankind can be brought to justice.

Supreme Courts Four Black Robed Nazi's Who Are Against 2nd Amendment

Supreme Court: Double-speakers for double-thinkers

Chad Polenz
Infowars
June 27, 2008

You ask me why I listen to Alex Jones and infowars.com - well HERE’S why! He said the Supreme Court would rule "in favor" of gun owners but in actuality rule against them.

Notice that these justices say exactly what the Second Amendment states ("A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.") but then through CLASSIC double-speak they say "even though it says it shall not be infringed, it shall be." In other words, "yes, you have a right to own guns but we have a right to infringe them."

Technically, if the justices followed the Amendment to the letter of the law it would get rid of ALL gun control across the board. But that’s never going to happen. I’m not dumb enough to think that any politician or judge in their right mind is going to strike down gun control entirely, although they should because that’s what the Constituition says.

So yeah, this might peel back SOME gun control but not all. They still say "the government may infringe your right to own a gun" even though the Second Amendment clearly states "shall NOT be infringed"

It doesn’t say UNREASONABLY infringed, it says flat-out it shall not be infringed!

But as is the case with the Constitution, everyone has a different interpretation. People think "the militia" mean the military, or the national guard. No, sorry liberals. The militia is EVERYONE! Who fought in the Revolutionary War? Regular people like you and I. Only 4% of the total American population were able to fight off the entire British Empire. We can do it again, that’s why I post these bulletins and blogs. It’s a grassroots effort - just a few people CAN make a difference.

Here’s a good example: remember in the Ben Affleck movie "Pearl Harbor" there’s a scene where FDR is briefed by the Joint Chiefs and one of the generals says "Mr. President, if the Japanese invaded California they could get all the way to Chicago before we could stop them." Now, I have no idea if that was true at the time, but this is EXACTLY the kind of scenario the Second Amendment was supposed to prevent. Imagine, even as recently at the 1940s if a foreign country invaded our soil they could get halfway across it. Well, if we had a regulated-militia we would never have to worry about this.

If you believe that ALL American citizens make up the militia you should be against all gun control across the board. If you think the second amendment only applies to police and military, well, you’re deluding yourself. And I know what you’re thinking, "you’re saying ex-cons, lunatics, and children should carry guns?" In an ideal world, yes, because this wouldn’t be a problem since everyone else would be armed to defend themselves against these people. Obviously, that’s never going to happen. I can’t honestly imagine a scenario in which every American citizen is allowed to walk around with a gun on their side at all times, much like the Old West or the setting of a Star Wars movie.

Don’t worry limp-wristed liberals and fake neo-cons, the gun control laws still on the books will work wonders to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens and keep them IN the hands of street thugs, Mafia members and backwoods survivalist groups. Maybe instead of passing gun control laws we go after the people supplying the guns to these criminals? It’s like illegal immigrants, instead of just deporting them why not prosecute employers who hire them? That would solve that problem pretty darn quick.

So you you wonder why I listen to Alex Jones? He predicted this outcome TO THE LETTER of the ruling! It’s not a victory for gun owners, it’s a victory for double-speak government and double-think people everywhere.

Supreme Court rules in favor of gun ownership rights

By MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Americans have a constitutional right to keep guns in their homes for self-defense, the justices’ first major pronouncement on gun control in U.S. history.

The court’s 5-4 ruling struck down the District of Columbia’s 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. The decision went further than even the Bush administration wanted, but probably leaves most firearms restrictions intact. (DOUBLE-THINK!!)

The court had not conclusively interpreted the Second Amendment since its ratification in 1791. The amendment reads: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

The basic issue for the justices was whether the amendment protects an individual’s right to own guns no matter what, or whether that right is somehow tied to service in a state militia.

Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said that an individual right to bear arms is supported by "the historical narrative" both before and after the Second Amendment was adopted.

The Constitution does not permit "the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home," (YES IT DOES!! WHAT PART OF "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND!?!?!) Scalia said. The court also struck down Washington’s requirement that firearms be equipped with trigger locks or kept disassembled, but left intact the licensing of guns. (DOUBLE-THINK!!)

Scalia noted that the handgun is Americans’ preferred weapon of self-defense in part because "it can be pointed at a burglar with one hand while the other hand dials the police."

In a dissent he summarized from the bench, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that the majority "would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons."

He said such evidence "is nowhere to be found." (WHAT PART OF "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND, STEVENS? OBVIOUSLY YOU DON’T KNOW WHO FOUGHT THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR)

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote a separate dissent in which he said, "In my view, there simply is no untouchable constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to keep loaded handguns in the house in crime-ridden urban areas." (THAT’S RIGHT, BREYER, PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN CRIME-RIDDEN AREAS DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. YET SOMEHOW THE CRIMINALS IN THOSE AREAS GOT THEIR HANDS ON GUNS AND YOU WANT TO TAKE THEM OUT OF THE HANDS OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS - RIGHT ON!!)

Joining Scalia were Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas. The other dissenters were Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David Souter.

Gun rights supporters hailed the decision. "I consider this the opening salvo in a step-by-step process of providing relief for law-abiding Americans everywhere that have been deprived of this freedom," said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association. (MAYBE, BUT THEY STILL SAID THE GOVERNMENT MAY RESTRICT OUR RIGHTS TO BEAR ARMS. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK IT’S REALLY GOING TO CHANGE IN THE BIG PICTURE?)

The NRA will file lawsuits in San Francisco, Chicago and several of its suburbs challenging handgun restrictions there based on Thursday’s outcome.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a leading gun control advocate in Congress, criticized the ruling. "I believe the people of this great country will be less safe because of it," she said. (OH MY GOD, THESE CHICKEN-NECK LIBERALS MAKE ME NUTS. "PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES - THAT’S WHAT WE HAVE POLICE FOR!")

The capital’s gun law was among the nation’s strictest.

Dick Anthony Heller, 66, an armed security guard, sued the District after it rejected his application to keep a handgun at his Capitol Hill home a short distance from the Supreme Court.

"I’m thrilled I am now able to defend myself and my household in my home," Heller said shortly after the opinion was announced.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in Heller’s favor and struck down Washington’s handgun ban, saying the Constitution guarantees Americans the right to own guns and that a total prohibition on handguns is not compatible with that right. (NEITHER IS EVEN A PARTIAL PROHIBITION - "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!")

The issue caused a split within the Bush administration. Vice President Dick Cheney supported the appeals court ruling, but others in the administration feared it could lead to the undoing of other gun regulations, including a federal law restricting sales of machine guns. Other laws keep felons from buying guns and provide for an instant background check. (NOTICE HOW A NEO-CON IS ACTUALLY FOR GUN CONTROL! THAT GOES TO SHOW HOW BIG OF FRAUDS THESE GUYS ARE! OF COURSE HE DOESN’T WANT AMERICANS ARMED - WE MIGHT ACTUALLY FIGHT BACK AGAINST HIS ENGINEERED POLICE STATE!)

White House reaction was restrained. "We’re pleased that the Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to keep and bear arms," White House spokesman Tony Fratto said.

Scalia said nothing in Thursday’s ruling should "cast doubt on long-standing prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons or the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings." (DOUBLE-THINK! DOUBLE-THINK! DOUBLE-THINK!!!)

In a concluding paragraph to the his 64-page opinion, Scalia said the justices in the majority "are aware of the problem of handgun violence in this country" and believe the Constitution "leaves the District of Columbia a variety of tools for combating that problem, including some measures regulating handguns."

The law adopted by Washington’s city council in 1976 bars residents from owning handguns unless they had one before the law took effect. Shotguns and rifles may be kept in homes, if they are registered, kept unloaded and either disassembled or equipped with trigger locks.

Opponents of the law have said it prevents residents from defending themselves. The Washington government says no one would be prosecuted for a gun law violation in cases of self-defense. (WORD!)

The last Supreme Court ruling on the topic came in 1939 in U.S. v. Miller, which involved a sawed-off shotgun. Constitutional scholars disagree over what that case means but agree it did not squarely answer the question of individual versus collective rights.

Forty-four state constitutions contain some form of gun rights, which are not affected by the court’s consideration of Washington’s restrictions.

The case is District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290.

33 Degree Freemason Harry Truman Created Nazi NSA Without Congress Approval


Document 2a. Memorandum from President Harry S. Truman to the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, Subject: Communications Intelligence Activities, October 24, 1952.

Document 2b. National Security Council Intelligence Directive No. 9, Communications Intelligence, December 29, 1952.

President Truman's memorandum revokes the provisions of NSCID 9 with regard to the composition, responsibilities, and procedures of the U.S. Communications Intelligence Board. It establishes the USCIB as an entity "acting for and under" a newly created Special Committee of the National Security Council for COMINT, consisting of the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense.

More significantly, Truman's memo, along with a Department of Defense directive, established NSA, and transformed communications intelligence from a military activity divided among the three services to a unified national activity.3 Thus, the first sentence states that "The communications intelligence (COMINT) activities of the United States are a national responsibility."

The memorandum instructs the Special Committee to issue a directive to the Secretary of Defense which defines the COMINT mission of NSA as being to "provide an effective, unified organization and control of the communications intelligence activities of the United States conducted against foreign governments." Thus, "all COMINT collection and production resources of the United States are placed under his operational and technical control."

The directive provided the NSA director with no authority regarding the collection of electronic intelligence (ELINT)—such as intelligence obtained from the interception of the emanations of radarsor of missile telemetry. Responsibility for ELINT remained with the military services.

NSCID 9 of December 1952 replaces its 1950 predecessor as mandated by Truman's directive. Often using identical language to that in the Truman directive, it revises the responsibilities of the United States Communications Intelligence Board as well as defining the role of the newly created National Security Agency and enumerating the responsibilities of its director.

The NSA uses a Nuremberg Nazi Eagle as its symbol. Notice the similarities?
Does the National Security Agency Possess Divine Power?

By Texe Marrs

In its own literature, the National Security Agency (NSA) the super-secret government agency claims the divine power, given by Christ Jesus, to "loose and bind" in heaven and on earth. This eye-opening assertion is found in an official brochure sent to me upon request by the NSA's public affairs department.

Divine Power to Loose and Bind

The brochure goes to great lengths in describing the insignia, or seal, of the NSA. The chief element of the NSA insignia, the brochure explains, is the eagle. The NSA says that the eagle in its insignia symbolizes "supreme power and authority." In the eagle's talons, or claws, is a key. The NSA's brochure bluntly states that this key represents the divine authority given by Christ to loose and bind:

"The key in the eagle's talons, representing the key to security, evolves from the emblem of St. Peter the apostle, and his power to loose and to bind."

Amazingly, the NSA is staking a divine claim to "Supreme Authority" on heaven and earth as the possessor of the keys to the kingdom of God! In Matthew 16:19, Jesus told the Apostle Peter:

"And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."

What's more, the NSA's brochure suggests that the agency will possess the awesome power to "loose and to bind" for all eternity: "The shape of the insignia, a circle," is said to represent "perpetuity of continuance, the symbol of eternity." In other words, this gargantuan, global, NSA spy agency proclaims that its eternal destiny is to be the divine holder of the keys to heaven and earth. This grants the organization "supreme power and authority."

In its official brochure, the NSA insignia is further described as containing: "a five pointed star a silver key in a field of blue (and) the escutcheon, or shield, supported by thirteen pieces red and white." Those who have studied occultic and Masonic symbology will understand the hidden, esoteric meaning of such symbols and devices.

Shadow Government Created Out of Thin Air

The NSA was created in 1952 out of thin air by executive order of then President Harry Truman, a 33¯ Mason. Over the years it has grown in size and authority. In 1972, the agency quietly changed its name to Central Security Service (CSS), a mysterious designation and title which the NSA now publicly downplays and keeps under wraps. The name Central Security Service eliminates the word "National" and, thus, more accurately reflects the agency's global mission.

By whatever name it prefers, the NSA operates behind the scenes as America's hidden shadow government. This colossal, Gestapo-like bureau manages incredible cryptographic, cyberspace, computer, and electronic tools for a burgeoning, Big Brother World Government. The NSA's state-of-the-art, high tech capability is masterfully used to control and monitor humanity. Project L.U.C.I.D., the stunning, new computer system involving the establishment of a global all seeing eye, is the culmination of the NSA's many devilish projects.

From its massive, Beast Computer, headquarters operations at Fort Meade, Maryland, the NSA coordinates and directs the activities of the White House and the United Nations. Its influence is felt at the CIA and FBI and in the intelligence and police organizations of all the major powers—the U.S.A., Russia, France, Great Britain, etc. Its billions of dollars in annual spending is kept classified by the U.S. Congress and secreted away in a separate "black budget" category.

Who's in charge of the NSA? Who's minding the store? My sources reveal that the head of the NSA takes orders directly from the Inner Circle, the ten-man presidium of the global Illuminati. The operation of this Inner Circle of the elite is explored in my book, Circle of Intrigue: The Hidden Inner Circle of the Global Illuminati Conspiracy.


Project L.U.C.I.D.The insider information we have obtained on L.U.C.I.D.© is tremendously important, unbelievably vital, and earthshaking. So much so, that I have produced a special book exposing this monstrous project and warning of its deadly implications for Christian believers and American patriots.

World Surveillance Headquarters: Dark Secrets of the National Security Agency
By Texe Marrs

The National Security Agency (NSA) is the most dangerous, most secretive organization on planet Earth. One reliable intelligence source identifies this supersleuth, police state agency as "World Surveillance Headquarters." Yet, surprisingly, only a handful of people are even aware of its existence.

The NSA employs thousands of government bureaucrats, intelligence officials, military personnel, and technological specialists in a global-wide operation. Its headquarters—closely guarded by U.S. Army security personnel at Fort Meade, Maryland—is housed in the second largest building in the United States, surpassed only by the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. This huge, behemoth of a facility, appropriately enough, has been called the "Puzzle Palace."

The mission of the NSA, broad and all-encompassing, involves war planning, security investigations, classified materials control, and management of America's far-flung spy and intelligence network. The CIA, the State Department, even the White House and its occupants, take orders from the unseen chiefs at the NSA.

The infamous activities and international crimes of France's intelligence service, Russia's KGB secret police, Israel's spy agency, the Mossad, Britain's MI-6, and Canada's Secret Intelligence Service (CSIS) can all be laid at the feet of America's notoriously evil National Security Agency.

The whirring of the computers and the eerie sounds emanating from the ultra-classified, cryptographic machines inside the NSA's Puzzle Palace never cease. Twenty-four hours a day, the NSA hums along, its giant computer network correlating, deciphering, and analyzing data and reports from spy satellites, from remote telephone wiretaps and sensors, from international banks, from the 32 directorates of the United Nations, and from the bowels of the Secret Societies, the Vatican curia, and the various agencies of over 170 nations around the globe.

This hulking monstrosity is the fount of global evil for the New World Order, which some now euphemistically call the "New Civilization." It is responsible for genocidal massacres of hundreds of thousands of people in Rwanda, Burundi, and Angola in Africa, for the brutal ethnic cleansing and killing camps in Bosnia, and for the bloody, experimental concentration camp operation run by NSA stooge Jim Jones of the Peoples Temple, in Guyana, South America.

The National Security Agency is guilty of horrific, murderous, and barbaric acts of terrorism everywhere on planet Earth. With their so-called "black budgets," the NSA and its inferior organizations sponsor, create, fund, and manage terror units and groups of all ideological stripes and shades.

But the chief and most strategic mission of the labyrinth known as the National Security Agency is the development, construction, and oversight of the Beast 666 Universal Human Control System.

Through its supervision of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the NSA has been able to create and install a fabulous, global system of computers, satellites, telecommunications devices, and surveillance gadgetry. The men who plot behind the massive, locked doors of the NSA's Puzzle Palace have also spent as much as $250 billion dollars—spread over the past quarter of a century—to create fantastic, high tech systems of human control.

These systems of control are so diabolically effective that only a mastermind could originally have conceived them. Can there really be any doubt about it? Is the Chief Executive Officer of the NSA a human being...or is this monstrous agency headed behind the scenes by Lucifer himself?

Aultman Hospital In Canton, Ohio Uses Many Masonic / Satanic Symbols

Notice The Masonic All Seeing Eye in the top photo (Look Closely it is hidden). The main symbol used for Aultman Hospital all over Canton, Ohio. The photo under that is the all seeing eye on the dollar bill put their by Freemasons.

The Beginning

In January 1890, Mrs. Elizabeth Harter, daughter of manufacturer and banker Cornelius Aultman, purchased 4.5 acres of land in the southwest end of Canton, Ohio. Elizabeth Harter and stepmother Katherine Barron Aultman deeded this land in 1891 to the Aultman Hospital Association.

Aultman Hospital, Stark County's first hospital, opened its doors on Jan. 17, 1892. Dr. James Fraunfelter performed the first surgery months later, attempting to save the life of Norman L. Deuble, who fell off his high-wheeled bicycle during a race and struck his head on a curbstone.

1920-1940
In 1925, the Harter Building was constructed. It added 100 beds to the 40-room hospital. The McKinley Building opened in 1944 and added another 106 beds. Three years later, another 117 beds were added by the opening of the Harter Annex.

1950-1960
The Obstetrical Anesthesia department opened in 1951 with nurse anesthetists. By 1960, Aultman offered 24-hour availability of epidural pain relief during labor and delivery.

In 1954, the Main Building and the Morrow House were completed. Construction of the Main Building replaced the hospital's original structure and included 139 additional beds.

The 1960s and 1970s
Although closed heart surgery was performed in the 1950s, the hospital's heart program began to develop beginning in 1969 with the addition of the Heart Lab. Additionally in 1969, the seven-story Memorial Building was constructed -- and the Cancer Program began with the arrival of a cobalt radiation therapy unit. These additions were followed by the Aultman Ambulatory Building in 1979.

The 1980s and 1990s
The Emergency/Trauma Center expanded in 1989. The Second Century Project was completed in 1992, followed by the Physician Office Building in 1998.

New services added in the 1980s and 1990s included the Aultman Center for Dialysis, lithotripsy, reproductive endocrinology, Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care, pharmacy robot, laboratory automation project and the helipad.

Recent History - and Looking Ahead
Aultman has expanded into the communities we serve, constructing Aultman North, Aultman West and Aultman Carrollton. In 2003, Aultman relocated its outpatient therapy services to a newly renovated building on Tuscarawas Street, across from the main hospital campus. Aultman also opened Aultman Louisville and completed Aultman Woodlawn.

In September 2003, Aultman broke ground on Aultman 2010, an expansion and modernization project on the main campus of Aultman Hospital. The project will be complete early summer of 2006, and it represents Aultman's continued commitment to meet the changing needs of our patients.
Notice the Masonic oblong square on this Aultman Hospital College.

In January of 1890, Mrs. Elizabeth Harter, daughter of manufacturer and banker Cornelius Aultman, purchased 4.5 acres of land in the southwest end of Canton, Ohio. She and her stepmother, Katherina Barron Aultman, deeded this land in 1891 to the Aultman Hospital Association. On January 17, 1892, Aultman Hospital, Stark County's first hospital opened its doors. Since its beginning Aultman Hospital has been anticipating future community health care needs as they opened the School of Nursing in that same year. Three students were admitted to the Aultman Hospital School of Nursing two-year program. Approval from the State of Ohio was received on January 1, 1916. Since that time, thousands of student nurses have graduated and provided countless years of competent, caring services to clients within our community and throughout the world. The original program led to the development and transformation of the current Aultman College of Nursing and Health Sciences and its first program, a two-year Associate of Science Degree in Nursing. We celebrate our roots and history even as we join with our current students, and future alumni, to soar in search of our shared dreams for a health care profession. Please consider joining us as we prepare more professionals to serve our community for the future health care needs of its people.

For more than 100 years, Aultman Hospital has provided quality health-care services and the latest technology to our community.

The Entered Apprentice is informed that the form of the lodge is that of an “oblong square.” The apparently contradictory words come from an antiquity to which the memory of man runneth not. The “oblong square” is the shape which our ancient progenitors imagined the world to be, probably because the swing of the sun across the sky was longer from east to west than its movement from north to south between winter and summer. Masonically, the words are not contradictory, since the “oblong” is formed of four squares, no less so that one leg of each is longer than the other. The Pythagorean Problem (forty seventh problem of Euclid) is usually, and always more beautifully demonstrated with a square which has one leg longer than the other, than with the familiar Master’s square with legs of equal length. Source: masonicworld.com

To us the Lodge is a symbol of the world, just as the “oblong square” symbolized the shape of the world to our ancient brethren. Ritualistically, a Lodge has the “vast proportions” of extending indefinitely “from East to West” stretching “from earth to heaven,” encompassing both center and circumference. It is universal; not located necessarily in one spot, confined to one room, one Temple, one city. In San Francisco a New York brother is still a member of his Mother Lodge; in China the visitor to Peking Lodge (Massachusetts dispensation) is still a member of his Boston Lodge. Precious the thought to many a wanderer that, wherever he is, there also is a bit of his Mother Lodge. Source: masonicworld.com

The form of a masonic lodge is said to be a parallelogram, or oblong square; its greatest length being from east to west, its breadth from north to south. A square, a circle, a triangle, or any other form but that of an oblong square , would be eminently incorrect and unmasonic, because such a figure would not be an expression of the symbolic idea which is intended to be conveyed. Now, as the world is a globe, or, to speak more accurately, an oblate spheroid, the attempt to make an oblong square its symbol would seem, at first view, to present insuperable difficulties. But the system of masonic symbolism has stood the test of too long an experience to be easily found at fault; and therefore this very symbol furnishes a striking evidence of the antiquity of the order. At the Solomonic era—­the era of the building of the temple at Jerusalem—­the world, it must be remembered, was supposed to have that very oblong form,66 which has been here symbolized. If, for instance, on a map of the world we should inscribe an oblong figure whose boundary lines would circumscribe and include just that portion which was known to be inhabited in the clays of Solomon, these lines, running a short distance north and south of the Mediterranean Sea, and extending from Spain in the west to Asia Minor in the east, would form an oblong square, including the southern shore of Europe, the northern shore of Africa, and the western district of Asia, the length of the parallelogram being about sixty degrees from east to west, and its breadth being about twenty degrees from north to south. This oblong square, thus enclosing the whole of what was then supposed to be the habitable globe,67 would precisely represent what is symbolically said to be the form of the lodge , while the Pillars of Hercules in the west, on each side of the straits of Gades or Gibraltar, might appropriately be referred to the two pillars that stood at the porch of the temple.

The Roots Of Evil In Jerusalem

Written by Jerry Golden


This report will shock and upset some; it is one I have put off for over 4 years. After struggling with it I have decided now is the time to write it. Knowing it could be misunderstood as anti-Semitic. God forbid that I a Jew should ever say or do anything that would be remotely considered as such, but I must admit this report does not come easy for me. The fact still remains that an evil force has been put into place in Jerusalem and has spread throughout Israel, in preparations for the end time and the seat of the anti-Christ. For if we are to believe that the anti-Christ is to have his seat on the Temple Mount, then we must come to grips with some truths not being preached today. One such truth is the foundation for such a move of the Devil must be underway even as we speak if this is to happen. Or we simply are not in the end days. This report will prove that such a move is underway and has been for quiet some time. It will be accepted by some and rejected by others, but that is the way it goes.

In this report I will use many pictures showing the establishment of the Illuminati and establish proof that there has been a diabolical plot by those we refer to as the New World Order. Showing the architectural design of the New Israeli Supreme Court Building designed and paid for by the Rothchilds reflex the presence of Free Masonry and the Illuminati. I took all but one of the pictures you are about to see so I can assure that what you are seeing is real and in place.

The same families who own and control the Federal Reserve and other major financial institutions have their eyes set on the Temple Mount, and the Holy City of Jerusalem. Just as Scriptures say, the man who will be revealed as the anti-Christ will sit in that place, before the appearance of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua HaMashiach, and many will receive him as their messiah. Just actually how that will come about remains to be seen, but one thing I am convinced of is that Holy men of God will not be the ones to rebuild the Temple, it will be the Illuminati. For God would not send men to that place to perform blood sacrifices. His Son’s blood was the perfect sacrifice; there is no need to shed the blood of dumb animals any longer. Yeshua did a perfect work, and it was finished. But He will return and take control of the New Temple that I feel will be built soon. But before He will return this world will have to get in such bad shape that the anti-Christ can be accepted by most as the savior who can bring peace and order to the world. But then you know the rest of that story so lets go on.

There are those who call themselves Jews but who are of the house of Satan. And many have found their way into the Israeli Knesset.

Once again Yeshua will enter into that place, the Holy Mountain of God and cleanse it, but before that happens all hell will break loose in Jerusalem and the world. So with all that said I will now show you some things that have never been published before, for the few who are aware have been afraid to speak of it. So I ask you to pray over this servant of God for protection as we go forth with these truths. These truths must be revealed in order for the Body to know how close we are to the Second Coming of Yeshua Ha Masiach - Jesus the Messiah.

As this entire report will be built around the construction of this building order by the Rothchilds I should show you a picture of the building. A friend of mine took this picture as he and his wife flew over the area a couple years ago. The Supreme Court building sits on a plot of land opposite the Knesset and next to the Foreign Ministry and the Central bank of Israel. It is important to keep in mind that it sits in line with the Knesset, for we will be talking about Ley-Lines that cross under this pyramid running to the Knesset, with other ley-lines that cross in perfect order to the center of Jerusalem and on to the Rockefellow Museum. Everything about this building has been thought out to the very finest detail, and it is diabolical. The Devils plan has been put into place before we ever had an idea of his plan. He knows his final battle will be here in Jerusalem.

The Engineers who were chosen for this job by the Rothschild’s were the grandson and granddaughter of Ben-Zion Guine from Turkey who worked for Baron Rothschild, Ram Kurmi, born in Jerusalem in 1931, and Ada Karmi-Melanede born in Tel-Aviv in 1936. For those who can make something out of the numbers. It was important to the builder to have everything done according to the correct numbers. There were 1,000 sheets of plans, 1,200 cement posts; they worked on the building for 3 years or 750 days. 20 workers each day, for 200,000 workdays, 250,000 building stones, each hand placed.

The Israeli Supreme Court, Jerusalem.

The first thing you will notice is the pyramid with the all Seeing Eye just like the one you will see on the American dollar bill, it sits in a circle to the left. We will elaborate on this a little later in this article. The larger circle you see at the bottom of the picture is an inverted-cross designed to walk on. It is the only religious emblem designed to be trampled on under foot. At the top of the picture is a Moslem Gravesite, and just out of view to the right is an Egyptian Obelisk.



To the left just out of sight is a god of the Far East

And all through the building you will detect Hindu Altars. All of this will make more sense as we go along, keep in mind we are talking about the establishment of a form of Government that will usher in the anti-Christ.

There is little proof on the building itself of the presence of the Rothschild’s but on an outside wall we find these two items.

Pointing to the garden that displays the Egyptian obelisk

Giving recognition to the Rothschilds, you will notice the Rothschilds emblem at the top. It is the symbol for the founder of the Rothschild Dynasty and his five sons, who established central banks throughout Europe.

The Rothschilds made several stipulations with the Israeli Government before the building began, among them were. The Rothschilds would pick the plot of land to build the Supreme Court; they would use their own architects, and no one would ever know how much the building cost. It took them four years to build this structure with many secrets built into it.

After passing through security the first thing you will notice on the left wall is a large picture.

From the left you will see Teddy Kollek, then Lord Rothschild, on the right standing you will see Shimon Peres, and setting at the bottom left Yhzhak Rabin. And others who brought us the Olso death process that we are now faced with.

But this is where our journey begins as we begin to enter into the building, for this entire journey is intended to bring one from darkness into the light, and become an Illuminated one.

You first enter into an area with very dim lighting, but as you look up the stairs you see the bright light that comes from a very large window that over looks parts of Jerusalem.

Here it is very important to count the steps; there are three sets of 10 steps, making a total of 30. As you ascend these 30 steps you come from the darkness into the light. And from here you can see the world or in this case the city of Jerusalem like you haven’t seen it before. It is also worth mentioning that on the left side you will see the old Jerusalem Stone, some even believe these same stones were used in the second Temple, but I have no way to prove that. On the other side you will see the smooth modern wall. There are 6 lamp stands going up that speaks to man in his journey to gain knowledge and become illuminated. But once again I feel it necessary to tell you that it’s very important to the ones who built this building that everything be perfect and in their order of things, even numerically.

As we turn to the left and begin to walk towards the Pyramid we notice a metal strip in the marble floor. The Ley-Lines cross directly under the pyramid they run from this place to different places in the city. It is where the Judges and others can stand to receive knowledge and power. Standing directly over a piece of crystal with the all Seeing Eye of Lucifer the light bearer above them.

For those who are not aware of the term Ley-Lines, it is lines in geographical places that Witches, Warlock, and Wizards walk claiming for the Devil. If you will notice in every large city all palm readers and such are usually on the same street that is a ley-line.

Here is a map of Jerusalem, you can see that the Supreme Court Building and the Knesset are connected with one straight line, and at a 90% angle to that line half way is a Ley-line that runs perpendicular. That line runs straight down the middle of a street known as Ben Yehuda, a place where all the crazies meet, and at any given day you can find at least one who calls himself Elijah or Moses. Israelis call Ben Yehuda the freak show. That line runs on to the Rockefeller Museum; and from the Rockefeller Museum a line runs through the Moslem Quarters to the Temple Mount.



Just before entering under the pyramid there is a window you can look up at the pyramid, you will notice the ley-line that runs to the center of the pyramid.

For a moment lets go back to the top of the 30 steps, as we know there are 33 degrees in Free Masonry but the last three are the ones of higher learning and preparations to enter the Illuminati. So as we move from the top of the stairs towards the Pyramid we see a great library with three tiers to those three levels of higher learner. They three final steps in Free Masonry and after that if ones choose to go higher and have been accepted they enter the highest levels of the Illuminati. It is also important in this building to note that the 33rd level ends at the base of the Pyramid.

This is a very large and expensive Library, but there is something else about this one that should be mentioned. The first tier is 'only' for Lawyers; the second tier is 'only' for setting Judges. The highest and third tier is 'only' for retired judges. Which also speaks of the order of things in the Illuminati, as one must be accepted and move to the higher level before the knowledge at that level is available to them. And directly above that third tier is the Pyramid with the all seeing eye of Luther. That begins the journey into the Illuminati.

Directly under the Pyramid you see 6 squares. Six being the number of man, and each square has 4 sides speaking to the world. In the center directly under the point of the pyramid a crystal so that when one stand over it he of she is in direct line from the point of the pyramid and the crystal below.

There are five Courtrooms, each has an entrance in the shape of a Jewish Tomb, with the opening above the door for the spirit to have freedom to enter or leave. The wall with the courtroom entrances has a curve to it, while the outer wall is straight. There are two things said about his, some say it speaks to the straight line of Justice, and the curve line of Mercy, yet others say it speaks of order out of chaos. The motto of the Illuminati. There are three Judges who set in each courtroom, and above the seats of the Judges there are smaller pyramids that shed light onto the Judges as they sit over those who are brought up from the prisons cells below. The Judges chambers are above the courtrooms and they come down to bring light to those who are brought up from below.

I have done a small cut away from the whole plan of the building in order to show you the design of a Jewish Miskan brought into the plan, as all the other major religions of the world are represented in one form or another. As you walk from the pyramid you can go either to the courtrooms or towards the Judges chambers. But this is what that part of the building looks like, making the pyramid the holy of holies in this evil Miskan 'Temple'.

The bottom part of the above picture is the courtyard, and here we find finished stones brought in from the desert near Mitzpe Ramon where we find the worlds largest natural crater. A narrow channel of water that runs continually divides the stones. The architects claim to have been inspired from the Scriptures in Psalms 85:11 Truth shall spring up from the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. For the Judges sit above this courtyard looking down.

When you leave the center Courtroom or main courtroom directly across the opening you find the stairs going downstairs, at the base of the stairs you will find the fertility symbol always present in any illuminati structure, often hidden but always there. Much can be said about this symbol and the symbol of the masons with the compass and square with the 'G' in the middle, but I will leave that for another time or for someone else.

We have just lightly touched on the significance of this building for there are literally hundreds of details that point to the Illuminati and their plans for mankind. But more important to this report it establishes a base for the seat of the one that will be accepted by most as the messiah, before Yeshua returns to set up his reign and rule over the earth. I have no doubt that many will come against this report, and that the messenger rather than the message will be attacked. But I have tried to lay it out with proof and facts much more could be said and I am sure this will provoke others to say them, and possibly that is the intent of this article.

Ohio Patriot Act Exposed: 10 Problems With The Nazi Like Act


Source: acluohio.org

Click Here To Read S.B. 9 For Yourself

The Ohio General Assembly passed dangerous legislation that went into effect April 14, 2006: Senate Bill 9, known to many as the “Ohio Patriot Act.”
This law is both unnecessary to protect Ohioans’ safety and, far worse, threatens our constitutional rights and liberties.

1. It is unnecessary.
There is no demonstrable evidence that the laws currently
on the books are not keeping Ohioans safe. There was
no need for an Ohio Patriot Act.
The Legislative Service Commission, the research arm of
the state legislature, reported that SB 9 would not create
significant growth in Ohio criminal prosecutions for three
reasons: (a) the conduct prohibited under SB 9 already rises
to the level of a crime under existing law; (b) terrorist activity
has been historically rare in the State of Ohio; (c) in the unlikely
event of terrorist activity in Ohio the federal government
would most likely take the lead under federal antiterrorism
laws.

2. No amendments could fix a fundamentally bad law.
The Ohio Patriot Act is bad for Ohio because it confounds
existing law and offends civil liberties. Hundreds of Ohioans
called, faxed, and wrote members of the General Assembly
urging rejection of every version of the Ohio Patriot Act.

3. The hastily enacted federal Patriot Act, the constitutional
problems that have emerged from it, and the bipartisan
calls to reform it, should have served as an example to
Ohio legislators of what NOT to do.
There is a saying that those who do not learn from history are
doomed to repeat it. In the days following the tragedies of September
11, 2001, the U.S. Congress hastily passed a massive
piece of legislation called the USA Patriot Act, that few had time
to read and none had time to thoughtfully consider.
In the years since then, a groundswell of citizens from
across the political spectrum has called for reform. Groups
ranging from the ACLU to the American Conservative Union
to the Gun Owners Association have said that too much unchecked
government power is never the right answer. Constitutional
protections and civil liberties must be respected.
The Ohio Patriot Act similarly expands state bureaucracy
and tramples on constitutional protections.

4. The Ohio Patriot Act expands the powers of an unnecessary
and dangerous bureaucracy.
One of the lessons of the 9-11 Commission Report is that
bureaucracy does not keep us safer. SB 9 expands the duties
of the Division of Homeland Security within the Ohio Department
of Public Safety. The Division’s charge is to coordinate
information among various governmental and private organizations
and to encourage the sharing of that information.
While it is reasonable and even desirable for governmental
agencies to communicate effectively with each other, bringing
private organizations into the mix opens a Pandora’s Box of
data privacy concerns — threatening to turn every individual
transaction into a record that can and will be reviewed and
analyzed and made part of a database.

5. The Ohio Patriot Act intrudes on privacy by requiring individuals
to provide identification to law enforcement in a
broad range of circumstances, bringing us frighteningly
close to being a “show me your papers” society.
One section allows law enforcement to check IDs of all
people entering “transportation infrastructure sites” - such as
airports, bus stations, or ports – whenever there is a “threat to
security.” A person who refuses the demand for identification
will be denied access to the site. Because the declared “war on
terrorism” is open-ended, because we are eternally on at least
“heightened” alert, it follows that there is always “a threat to
security.” Accordingly, police may demand identification as
the price of admission to any train or bus station, any airport
or harbor, at any time.
Another section requires you to provide your name, address,
or date of birth to a law enforcement officer who “reasonably
suspects” that you have committed or are about to
commit a crime, or that you have witnessed a crime, or even
witnessed a plan to commit a crime. The U.S. Supreme Court
recently said that a law requiring persons suspected of a
crime to provide their name to an officer was constitutional.
In that case, the Court specifically distinguished laws, such as
this one, which required more than simply giving one’s name.
The inclusion of witnesses is even more problematic, as it
could include virtually anyone at anytime who may have seen
anything – making it susceptible to abuse.
It is fundamental to our constitutional freedom that people
may go about their business without having to show their papers,
to prove who they are or justify what they are doing. The exception,
of course, is when there is some legitimate and particular
need for law enforcement to gather specific information from a
specific person. Under those circumstances, police could always
act. The Ohio Patriot Act reaches far beyond that to permit government
authorities, almost upon whim, to demand information
beyond what the Constitution allows.

6. The Ohio Patriot Act requires self-incrimination, in violation
of the 5th Amendment.
This law requires applicants for many state-issued licenses,
state or local government contracts or funding, and
state jobs to certify that they have not provided material support to terrorists or terrorist organizations. If they have, the
application will be denied. If they lie, the application will be
denied and they will be charged with a criminal offense.
The first question to be asked on the application, “Are
you a member of an organization on the U.S. Department of
State Terrorist Exclusion List?” is precisely the question we
as a people are embarrassed that Senator McCarthy continually
asked: “Are you now, or have you ever been…?”
While it is understandable that the state would prefer not to
do business with or employ actual terrorists, it is hard to imagine
that someone intent on committing a terrorist act against the
United States or the State of Ohio would be deterred by the necessity
of denying that goal on a license, contract, or employment
application. And for those who may have unwittingly given money
to a charity that turned out to be a front for terrorists, they would
be required to disclose that in violation of the Fifth Amendment
right against self-incrimination.

7. The Ohio Patriot Act unnecessarily duplicates existing
criminal law and could only serve to create confusion for
law enforcement and legitimate businesses and researchers.
This law makes criminal what is already a crime. It replicates
already existing federal statutes and regulations regarding
the possession, assembly, and use of materials that could
be used for weapons — chemical, biological, radiological and
nuclear weapons, explosive devices, and their components.
By duplicating existing law, the Ohio Patriot Act may
cause confusion for law enforcement, legitimate businesses
and researchers. While we would hope that criminal charges
would not be brought against someone with a legitimate basis
for having such materials, the bill certainly exposes
nearly every manufacturing or industrial enterprise in Ohio to
such a possibility, and could discourage other such enterprises
from doing business here.

8. SB 9 sends the message that the state equates immigrants
with terrorists.
Placing special restrictions on immigrants in this supposedly
“anti-terrorism” law is highly discriminatory, essentially
equating immigrants and aliens with terrorists. It relies
on an incorrect assumption, because the example of Timothy
McVeigh (Oklahoma City) proves not all terrorists are from
foreign lands. Furthermore, it is bad policy for Ohio.
The Ohio Patriot Act requires that government employees
cooperate with immigration and terrorism investigations. Immigration
law is incredibly complicated, and immigration status is
often difficult to determine. Strapping our local law enforcement
with this added burden will only serve to stretch our safety
forces more thin, which leaves us all more vulnerable. Moreover,
and insofar as immigrant communities may contain terrorists
or more garden-variety criminals, it is important that members
of those communities, whether lawfully in the country or
not, feel comfortable and safe speaking with and assisting law
enforcement. When government targets those communities, it
reduces cooperation and reduces our safety.

9. The Ohio Patriot Act punishes political dissent.
The original version of SB 9 prohibited state and local
governments and their employees from objecting to the USA
Patriot Act and federal law. The final version of SB 9 included
a narrow exception, allowing them to express disagreement
with or a critical opinion of the Patriot Act and related policy
without punishment. However, the assault on political dissent
is still alive in this law.
The Ohio Patriot Act sends a clear message that, while
you may be permitted to voice criticism, you cannot act on it.
A community committed to respecting the Bill of Rights still
risks losing its homeland security funding if its policies in any
way “materially hinder or prevent” compliance with federal
immigration, terrorism, or homeland security efforts. It remains
unclear when a local policy crosses the line from permitted
speech to prohibited action. Communities that refuse
to conduct “sneak and peak” searches, or those that permit
concealed handguns in public buildings, could be denied
homeland security funds. This provision attacks core freedoms
while doing nothing to make us safer

10. The Ohio Patriot Act prevents the public from learning
about dangers in their communities.
This law allows business owners and operators, and
owner-operators of other facilities, to disclose vulnerabilities
and other security concerns to select government agencies.
We all hope they would do that. But in the apparent effort to
encourage (without requiring) such disclosure, the Ohio Patriot
Act exempts this information from public record. If the
aim of this law is protecting the people of this state, what end
is served by telling law enforcement that the nuclear power
plant might soon experience melt-down but not notifying the
neighbors who are in harm’s way?

If you are required to fill out an “I am not a terrorist" questionnaire
by the state or local government, have been subject to
law enforcement demands for ID at transportation sites or because
you allegedly witnessed a crime, or were told your local

Another Blow To The New World Order:”The Irish People Have Spoken; Lisbon Is dead”

Mike Whitney /
Online Journal | June 18, 2008

“Public opinion will be led to adopt, without knowing it, the proposals that we dare not present to them directly . . . All the earlier proposals will be in the new text, but will be hidden and disguised in some way.” V.Giscard D’Estaing*, Le Monde, June 14, 2007

Irish voters delivered a knockout punch to European elites and corporatists last Friday by rejecting plans for an EU Superstate.

The so-called Lisbon Treaty was nothing more than a dolled-up version of the failed European Constitution that was defeated by French and Dutch voters in 2005. The treaty was loaded with the typical "democratic" gobbledygook to conceal the vicious neoliberal policies at its heart. If it had passed, the treaty would have paved the way for greater privatization of public services, diminished workers rights, less state control over trade policies and civil liberties, and an aggressive plan to militarize Europe.

Ireland’s entire political and corporate class stood solidly behind the treaty, but the Irish people shrugged off the fear-mongering and bogus promises of prosperity and voted No. The referendum results showed 53.4 percent voted No, while 46.6 percent voted Yes. Despite the massive public relations campaign; the vote was not even that close.

A spokesperson for the No campaign put it like this: “The Irish people have spoken. Contrary to the predictions of social and political turmoil, we believe that hundreds of millions of people across Europe will welcome the rejection of the Lisbon Treaty. This vote shows the gulf that exists between the politicians and the elites of Europe, and the opinions of the people. As in France and the Netherlands, the political leaders and the establishment have done everything they could to push this through – and they have failed. The proposals to further reduce democracy, to militarize the EU and to let private business take over public services have been rejected. Lisbon is dead. Along with the EU Constitution from which it came, it should now be buried.” [Socialist Worker online]

Europe’s political class tried to ratify the treaty via a stealth campaign which intentionally obscured the implications of the new regime that would be put in place. Former Irish Taoiseach, Dr Garret FitzGerald*, summed it up like this in the Irish Times on June 30, 2007: ”The most striklng change [between the EU Constitution in its older and newer version] is perhaps that in order to enable some governments to reassure their electorates that the changes will have no constitutional implications, the idea of a new and simpler treaty containing all the provisions governing the Union has now been dropped in favour of a huge series of individual amendments to two existing treaties. Virtual incomprehensibilty has thus replaced simplicity as the key approach to EU reform. As for the changes now proposed to be made to the constitutional treaty, most are presentational changes that have no practical effect. They have simply been designed to enable certain heads of government to sell to their people the idea of ratification by parliamentary action rather than by referendum.”

Hmmm. In other words, European policymakers figured the only way they could pass the pro-business treaty was to make it as unreadable as possible. It’s no wonder, too. According to multiple sources, the treaty contains language that would restore the death penalty and override national decision making on critical issues. So much for sovereignty!

The observations of blogger Paul from Dublin seemed to epitomize the feelings of a great number of people who expressed deep suspicions over the agenda behind the treaty: "I am also deeply concerned at the direction the EU is going. Whereas it seemed originally to be an idealistic and benevolent project for Europe, accentuating all that was best about Europe, in recent times it seems to have fallen into the hands of the globalist gangster capitalist cabal of neo-liberals, following the US philosophy of every man for himself, and the devil take the hindmost.

"I also discovered some very sinister organisations none of which the mainstream media informed us about. Organisations such as the Transatlantic Economic Council, the Transatlantic Policy Network & the Streit Council which seeks a union between the US and Europe, and whose agenda is clearly a political as well as an economic union. In the fall 2007 journal of that body, a world bank economist said that you could not have economic integration without political integration."

Whether Paul is right to be skeptical or not is beside the point. The truth is that many Europeans think that the EU no longer operates in the best interests of the people. Clearly, this had a dramatic affect on the election’s results.

News of the defeat has not been well received in England where the neoliberal government of Gordon Brown has already indicated that it will reject the election results and "press ahead" in an effort to ratify the treaty. Neither Brown nor his friends in Brussels are likely to be deterred by anything as trivial as the will of the people. Labour MP and former Europe Minister Denis MacShane summed it up like this: "I personally think that a vote in a foreign country should not determine the democratic decisions taken in the British Parliament."

MacShane’s view is apparently shared by EC President Jose Manuel Barroso who said that EU member states should continue ratifying the Lisbon treaty, even though more than half of Ireland’s 43 constituencies rejected it outright. So much for democracy.

Also, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a joint statement Friday saying they hoped the remaining countries would continue the ratification process: "We are convinced that the reforms contained in the treaty of Lisbon are necessary to make Europe more democratic and more efficient."

The No vote makes matters particularly difficult for Sarkozy who is scheduled to take over the EU’s rotating presidency next month and was hoping to beef up Europe’s military capability while making big changes to the EU’s immigration policies. The failed referendum will derail the French president’s plans to play a bigger role in the war on terror or to help out in security operations in Afghanistan, Africa or Asia. In the final analysis, the No vote will hurt Washington as much as Euro-elites who were hoping for a blank check for more "free market" looting and foreign adventurism.

BRUSSELS PLAN: "Quarantine the Irish"

According to the UK Guardian: "Germany and France moved to isolate Ireland in the European Union yesterday, scrambling for ways to resuscitate the Lisbon Treaty a day after the Irish dealt the architects of the EU’s new regime a crushing blow.Refusing to take Ireland’s ‘no’ for an answer, politicians in Berlin and Paris prepared for a crucial EU summit in Brussels this week by trying to ringfence the Irish while demanding that the treaty be ratified by the rest of the EU.

The Franco-German plan is to get all 27 EU states to ratify the treaty as soon as possible, to quarantine the Irish and then come up with some legal maneuver enabling the treaty to go ahead.

‘We’re sticking firmly to our goal of putting this treaty into effect,’ said the German foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier. ‘So the process of ratification must continue.’

Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, who devoted most of last year to getting the EU’s members to agree on the Lisbon Treaty after the failure of the EU’s proposed new constitution in 2005, said: ‘We must carry on.’" (EU tries to isolate Irish after Treaty rejection, UK Guardian)

THE LUCK OF THE IRISH

The Irish have plenty to celebrate today. They’ve thrown a spanner in the plans of the bankers and corporate mandarins who want to replace representative government and national sovereignty with their own skewed vision of Capitalist Valhalla; a Euro-Utopia where short-term profits always take priority over the needs of ordinary people.

Bravo, Ireland.
