The Organization of Power

Part 2

When I started this article, I said the organization of power is the organization of money.  Probably most people thought, "tell me something I don't know".  Here is what you probably don't know.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a subversive organization acting against the interests of the United States and the American people.  Through their organized efforts, they are attempting to change our form of government to a form hostile to a free people.

Nearly every business you walk into, you can find on the wall someplace, the plaque proudly proclaiming to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce.  What that plaque tells you is that they are providing material support to the terrorist network that is transforming our country into a fascist, "homeland".  They are right in your neighborhood.  Their children play with your children - and they are destroying our country.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (COC) was chartered in 1912.  In the History Timeline on the COC website, they attribute the idea to President William Howard Taft.  Taft is alleged to have said,

"We want your assistance in carrying on the government in reference to those matters that affect the business and the business welfare of the country, we do not wish to limit your discretion in that matter". 

So maybe fascism was invented here?  In 1922, the Chamber hired Cass Gilbert, the same architect who designed the Supreme Court building, to design and build the Chamber of Commerce office building.  It makes me wonder if the Department of Commerce is a government agency or if it is actually an imposter creation of the Chamber of Commerce.

International Chamber of Commerce


  • ICC was founded, headquartered in Paris, led by Etienne Clémentel, a former French Minister of Commerce
  • The ICC International Court of Arbitration was founded in 1923
  • Three ICC members served on the Dawes Commission that drew up the international treaty on war reparations (which were so draconian that the deprivation caused World War II)
  • ICC issued the first version of its Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, still used by banks all over the world to finance trade, in 1933.
  • ICC was awarded the highest consultative status with the United Nations in 1946 (UN is replacement for the League of Nations that was chartered in the Versailles Treaty ending World War I in 1919.
  • "ICC Commercial Crime Services, based on London, was founded in the 1980's to address all aspects of commercial crime".
  • The World Chambers Federation provides a hub for chambers of commerce throughout the world
  • 13 ICC commissions were established with "experts" on the subjects of banking, taxation, competition law, intellectual property, telecommunications and information technology, transport, the environment, energy and international investment and trade policy

Foreign Trade Zones

One of the pieces of information on the International Chamber of Commerce website that was not mentioned above, was the following:

"In the 1920s, ICC focused on reparations and war debts. Then the disastrous Smoot-Hawley tariff in the United States set the scene for the economic nationalism of the 1930s. ICC struggled through those years of depression to hold back the tide of protectionism as another world war loomed."

The Smoot-Hawley legislation which was probably one of the best pieces of legislation passed in the history of this country because the increased tariffs inhibited the flow of cheap imports which allowed us room to build our own economy and to raise the standard of living for the American people.  It becomes important in the story I'm telling because Smoot-Hawley is given as the reason for the passage of the Foreign Trade Zone Act of 1934.  

From a Brief History of the U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones Program

The U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones program was created by the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 1934. The Foreign-Trade Zones Act was one of two key pieces of legislation passed in 1934 in an attempt to mitigate some of the destructive effects of the Smoot-Hawley Tariffs, which had been imposed in 1930. The Foreign-Trade Zones Act was created to "expedite and encourage foreign commerce" in the United States. This is accomplished through the designation of geographical areas, in or adjacent to Customs Ports of Entry, where commercial merchandise receives the same Customs treatment it would if it were outside the commerce of the United States. Merchandise of every description may be held in the Zone without being subject to Customs duties and other ad valorem taxes . This tariff and tax relief is designed to lower the costs of U.S.-based operations engaged in international trade and thereby create and retain the employment and capital investment opportunities that result from those operations.

The Foreign Trade Zones Act was like a land mine planted in 1934.  It was lying in wait.  In 1934, it was useful only at the margins - the borders because the United States did not have a transnational transportation system - the railroads notwithstanding.

The first legislation for roads was passed in 1916 but it wasn't until the Federal Aid to Highway Act of 1956 authorized the building of the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways that the effort to build a transnational transportation system became a serious national effort.

The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1962 included a mandate for urban areas with a population of 50,000 or more to establish a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for transportation projects as a condition of receiving federal financial assistance.  

The Highway Safety Act of 1966 included a requirement to provide for emergency medical services and transportation of the injured.   A history of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration was found on a website called     History.       Apparently, our EMS system including 911 grew out of this legislation and no doubt, there were strings for regional planning as a condition of receiving federal funding - probably under the MPO umbrella since they were responsible for planning highway on/off traffic patterns. 

In 1991, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act was passed.  It declared the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways complete.  The legislation created a new, National Highway System that included major arterials and feeder routes to transportation and intermodal facilities: 

 `The purpose of the National Highway System is to provide an interconnected system of principal arterial routes which will serve major population centers, international border crossings, ports, airports, public transportation facilities, and other intermodal transportation facilities and other major travel destinations; meet national defense requirements; and serve interstate and interregional travel16

In essence what this legislation was doing was providing the transportation hubs and support systems for the Foreign Trade Zones defined in 1934 creating a transportation system of continuous flow for international commerce effectively turning our highway system into international shipping lanes under the laws of international commerce.

In 1997, an article written by John J. Da Ponte, Jr. Executive Secretary of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board titled, 'The Foreign-Trade Zones Act Keeping Up With The Changing Times' says as much.  Excerpts: 


Enacted in 1934 -- after a long spell as a legislative proposal -- the FTZ Act (19 U.S.C. 18) added to our Customs system a new alternative procedure borrowed from the historic free port paradigm to help businesses in the Customs phase of their operations.

Thus, in its fourth decade the FTZ Act at last found itself beginning to fulfill its purpose -- a late blooming nurtured by the energizing forces reshaping the world economy. Paradoxically, it was the age-old free port concept embodied in the law that helped project the law's central purpose. That is, once the adaptability of the concept was recognized.


The role of free ports in promoting world trade is legendary. The historic cities that began using this strategy were mindful of the negative economic consequences of excessive tax impositions on trade, and the importance of a cost effective business environment.


With geo-economic shockwaves reaching the heartland and global commerce expanding beyond coastal areas, the vista for foreign-trade zones widened during the 1970's. Inland trade centers began taking on port characteristics as modernized intermodal transportation systems eased the flow of foreign trade. The latent FTZ law soon gained the attention of local public officials in these communities and became a common component of their economic efforts.

These developments gradually broadened the field of operations for FTZ activity to such a degree that during the 1980's the number of FTZ projects at inland port areas increased to over 50 percent of the total.



Recall that it was 1994 when the Congress of the United States voted to approve the NAFTA agreement to create the North American Free Trade Area - effectively for the purposes of commerce opening our borders between Canada and the U.S. and Mexico and the U.S.   That was followed in 1995 by the Congressional approval of the Marrakesh Agreement to create the World Trade Organization and to adhere to international commercial law - not controlled by the United States, thereby subverting the sovereignty of the people of the United States over their own country.  That "free trade" agreement included Trade in Services which subverted our immigration laws because a service can be provided by a single person who establishes himself to be engaged in commerce. 

There was another article in 1997 published by The Journal of Commerce, Global Trade, titled 'Manufacturers flock to foreign trade subzones' that provides an expanded view of the foreign trade zones and the exodus of U.S. business from "taxable territory" of the United States - and they were encouraged to do so. 

Tax credits and benefits derived from operating in a "free port" and/or operating offshore, cost the American taxpayers as they are expected to make up the difference in tax revenue losses gifted to corporations at the same time that our economy has been devastated by the export of manufacturing processes (export of jobs), and the importation of foreign "service workers" and the open borders for mass migration of people from Mexico and people coming through Mexico causing increasing poverty and declining standards of living in the United States. 

As you should know by now because of the leaked information on the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Investment (TTIP), plus our experience with NAFTA and the World Trade agenda that were negotiated as trade agreements when they really had little to do with trade as we understand it, that there is a different purpose for these agreements.  QED.  Examination of the "free ports" - zones that I call Trojan Triangles, reveal both the strategy and purpose of the "free traitors"  - with "free traitors" being defined as corporations through the concentrated power of the Chamber of Commerce.
