Face the Nation or the Corporation

                            

        Face the Nation or the Corporation 

Last Sunday on our mainstream CBS program, Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer; we once again hear War sound bites for Iran.  This time in an interview with Presidential candidate John McCain, who has been a strong supporter of the failed massive immigration bill along with Sen. John Kennedy?   It certainly seems that way, and many concerned citizens and researchers were aware the failed attempt was a key element necessary for the centralization of government that mainly creates profits for special interests via a North American Union. This called conveniently a partnership for prosperity, but just like in Europe which it was called initially a ‘Common Market” did later create a European Union costing individual Nations plenty of money, loss of sovereignty and loss of Freedoms. A merger or the more benevolent key word employed “security prosperity partnership” will incrementally do away with our Constitutional Republic and government of checks and balances. The American Tax payer, down the road ends up becoming like a “production unit to the State” instead of human beings with loving families, friends, and at birth natural constraints on the government’s potential abuse of power. War is the perfect pretext to create a chaos since the immigration bill failed to finally transform our current system of government which is for the People, by the People and of the People and not of bureaucratic bodies or banks. 

        In a prior broadcast dated September 30th,  again in Face the Nation, Schieffer interviewed a representative from the American Enterprise Institute. He had the usual friendly trusting smile, and another guest Pletka a female with a soft kind look but well pressed stiff business suit with the very familiar Iran possible intervention “sound bite” talk.  I wondered, Who is the savvy looking but crisp suited person representing this benevolent sounding Institute?  I checked and found that the AEI (American Enterprise Institute) in wikipedia was defined as a conservative think tank founded in 1943.  Well, that seemed ok and some good stuff did take place there, however in sourcewatch.org I found that it rents office space to the Project for the New America century or PNAC. PNAC is one of the leading voices that pushed the Bush Administration’s plan for “regime change” through war in Iraq. AEI representatives have denied many times that the war has anything to do with oil. Then during the TV program commercial I noticed that almost all were sponsored by Exxon Mobil but most disturbing is that studies from sourcewatch.org revealed that the head of the AEI board at one time was an Exxon Mobil executive. So, instead of this Sunday family time program being called Face the Nation, it should more appropriately be called Face the Corporation. This is one of the many problems that we are having with filtered media, and a warning that was given to us by former General and now deceased four Star Gen. Thomas S. Power, that we need true freedom of the Press. In order for us to have a healthy Republic, true ethical values and a sound economy the people need transparency and true dialogue with issues affecting the Nation and not a one sided conversation or media delivery system that serves mainly special interests. Many of us who love business enjoy prosperity but not at the expense of our Republic, the people and society in general. We need to be aware of those cheerleading for drastic changes.  It is no surprise that in the Zogby/Reuters poll only 11% of Americans approve of congress and 24 % of our President, specially since we know the days of trusting our Representatives to look after us and our Republic are over. Most of us working 2 or 3 jobs have not yet become totally deaf, dumb nor blind to those getting paid Big bucks and huge beneficts to lead us.  Rest assure that as the ink dries during this writing the same group will be at it again, filtering the airwaves creating smokes and mirrors while our Republic gets dismantled to the Profit masters.  Circulating debt, centralizations for special interests and war sound bites instead of wealth and ethics will get us on a  path with no growth or direction. Instead of human beings we may end up becoming like hamsters in a cage just going around in circles working to pay up the never ending debt until we may collapse from exhaustion as a civilization.

The U.N.’s Law of the Sea Treaty.

     Correct me if I am wrong, but did we all fall off a truck like Stupid? Why is the media not even mentioning the coming vote by our Congress in the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty? How could we continue to be a healthy Republic when there is no true disclosure to the American people about key issues that affect their independence,  future properity, and costs of entanglements with other governing bodies around the world? What is this Law of the Sea Treaty anyway? It seems that we will never get a direct answer from our so call US media or fictional freedom of the Press. We have to by chance in between working our 2 or 3 jobs get a small sound bite by some Patriot still holding to our values to provide the answers or information to us. This 202 pages long Treaty (of course not voted by us or We The People), turns over Oceanic resources (oil, gas, and minerals etc.) to the U.N. and the main original creators of this Treaty were central or one World pro-government types after WWII. So, as our working brothers and sisters from our inner cities would say, “So what up with that.?” Well, this means more money for us to pay via global taxes and other costly restrictions.  This will also create a global tax on American Corporations discouraging them to stay here, and leave perhaps permanently for cheaper labor markets.  Then  what do we have left, global socialism?  Did socialism truly work and if so, did it lead to communism?  Was that system successful and productive to the People and the Society in general?  Where the rulers of such a system abusive to the People?

     The main issue with these treaties is that they are incrementally taking away our US Sovereignty. What is sovereignty?  The principle that the state exercizes absolute power over its territory, system of government, and its population. The authority of the state supercedes that of all other bodies to include burdersome bureacracies. The Law of the Sea Treaty contains provisions that seem to go with redistribution of wealth with underdeveloped countries. We in the United States already have many people in need and taking the burden from existing fees and taxes like the 5 billion already given to the UN yearly.  Even at the moment the UN is undergoing a huge reconstruction project costing us billions. Do we also need to give away our Land, resources and rule of Law?  This treaty will be the greatest give away of our Sovereignty and independence down the road since the giving away of the Panama Canal during the Jimmy Carter Presidency.  What is the end game or what is this all leading to? These are questions we should ask ourselves and those “representing us” in our Congress. 

     The trojan horse brought to us with this treaty is that it will end up not just restricting our ocean floors but our dry land as well via the Ocean Pollution regulations. This will eventually influence the ability of how America does business on its Land with the “pollution” pretext regulations. We already have so many new regulations and Laws taking away our Freedoms and independence specially during this past year to last a lifetime.  So, please ask yourself, Why has the Bush administration expressed interest in joining he International Seabed Authority, and urged our Congress to ratify it without proper disclosure to you, the American People?
