War in the Context of Everything Else

Digital Coup d'etat


In the previous two sections,  I've documented at length, how the idea of 'Trade in Services' was promoted by the financial services corporations:  American Express, Citibank and American International Group.  I also documented the part that Walter B. Wriston, CEO of Citibank played in it including references to his book, "Twilight of Sovereignty" which was published in 1992.   So now we have to back up a little bit and look at our evil twin - the European Union. 

Conceptual Framework for Trade in Services

In Part 3 of this documentation, a book titled, "International Trade in Services:  An Overview and Blueprint for Negotiations", written by Geza Feketekuty was referenced.  Feketekuty served with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative for 21 years in various senior trade policy leadership positions. He played a central role in the conceptualization and development of U.S. trade policy and global trade negotiations over those two decades.  At the beginning of Chapter X, Feketekuty wrote:

"The first major step forward came in 1979, when the United States succeeded in persuading the other industrial countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to undertake a study of trade in services, with the objective of identifying areas for future negotiation. The analytical work and the discussions that have taken place in the OECD over the past eight years have created a substantial consensus among developed countries on the desirability of launching negotiations on trade in services in the GATT. In line with that consensus, OECD countries agreed in spring 1987 to release a paper titled "Elements of a Conceptual Framework for Trade in Services," which sets out the key elements to be included in an agreement on trade in. services. It has made a substantial contribution to the development of an intellectual foundation for the negotiations."


The OECD is the successor organization to the OEEC which was the organization formed to administer the Marshall Plan.

"The forerunner of OECD was the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC). OEEC was formed in 1947 to administer American and Canadian aid under the Marshall Plan for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. Its headquarters were established at the Château de la Muette in Paris in 1949.

OECD took over from OEEC in 1961. Since then, its mission has been to help its member countries to achieve sustainable economic growth and employment and to raise the standard of living in member countries while maintaining financial stability – all this in order to contribute to the development of the world economy."


It took me a while to find the "Conceptual Framework for Trade in Services" and I'm not sure it's the complete document (doubtful), but it has enough detail to know what they had in mind.  If you want to look at it on the website where I found it, use THIS LINK to the United Nation Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) website and scroll to page 14.   Alternately, you can look at it from my website with the framework section extracted.... CLICK HERE.

The search for the Conceptual Framework led me to find an even more important document produced by the European Commission:

Strengthening the Technological Base and Competitiveness of Community Industry (Objective 92)
COM(85) 84 final
Brussels, 19 March 1985

It's obvious when you read this paper, that the persons doing the thinking and writing the strategy papers for the European Union - were the same people who were writing the strategy papers and doing the thinking for the United States (Canada and Mexico) - and for the same purpose - coup d'etat.  The only real difference is that they set the target date for completion of the objectives to 1992 (recall, the Berlin Wall didn't come down until 1989).  The target date for the North American Union objectives was 2005. 

The 1985 strategy with a target date of 1992 was accepted by the European Commission.  In 1986, the Commission published the following paper:

Progress Towards the Creation of an Area Without Frontiers
COM(86) 372 final
Brussels, 20 June 1986


In 1990, the G8 Summit was held in Houston.  It was at that meeting that the decision was made to internationalize and integrate our financial systems with the other G8 countries. 

In previous work, I documented a number of national computer systems and strategic plans for the re-design of our government that were the direct result of decisions that were made in Houston.  Each of the national computer systems listed in that document was researched from the bottom up by following threads of information.  My life would have been so much easier if I'd known about a White Paper Report produced by the Jacques Delors for the European Commission because that White Paper while directed at Europeans was the same game plan that was planned for the EU's evil twin - the United States.  The insurgency from below that I mentioned in Part 3 of this paper are the people who executed the plans to internationalize and integrate U.S. computer systems with the European Union. 

The name of the Report is:    Growth, Competitiveness and Employment
                                            Commission of the European Communities
                                            COM (93) 700
                                            5 December 1993
                                            Parts A and B

So what is the significance of integrating U.S. government computer systems into an international system?  It was an act of treason, sabotage and a digital coup d'etat on the United States.   You can't integrate two entirely different systems - government or not.  All the data - and the rules for handling the data between the two systems have to be syncronized (harmonized). The rules for handling data in U.S. government computer systems - especially for systems having to do with banking, securities, insurance, etc. all had to do with U.S. law.  With that as a given, you should now understand why the U.S. laws for these industries were gutted.  They all had to be rewritten to harmonize with the Europeans for the integrated international systems.  

And that's probably what Thomas Barnett was talking about when he talked about the 'New Rulesets Project' that he did with Cantor-Fitzgerald in 2001.  In 1994, the European Commission published their Action Plan:

The information society is on its way. A "digital revolution" is triggering structural changes comparable to last century's industrial revolution with the corresponding high economic stakes. The process cannot be stopped and will lead eventually to a knowledge-based economy.

The Commission's White paper on "Growth, Competitiveness, Employment - The challenges and ways forward into the 21st century" acknowledges the importance of this process, critical to the future of European society. It develops a positive vision, stressing that information and communication technologies and related services have the potential to promote steady and sustainable growth, to increase competitiveness, to open new job opportunities and to improve the quality of life of all Europeans.

The White paper was examined by the European Council at its December 1993 meeting. The Council gave its full political support and requested that a report be prepared on the information society by a group of prominent persons, providing concrete recommendations for action.

The report "Europe and the global information society - Recommendations to the European Council", illustrates the search for a consensus on this issue and builds on the White paper's analysis. It highlights the need for an acceleration of the liberalisation process and the achievement and the preservation of universal service and the Internal Market principles of free movement. Public authorities will have to set new "rules of the game", control their implementation and launch public interest initiatives. The deployment and financing of an information infrastructure will be the primarily responsibility of the private sector. At a Community level, in addition to legislative initiative, it will be necessary to better target available resources to contribute to the new objectives.

In the U.S., in 1997, Al Gore released the 'Blair House Papers' on the "reinvention of government".  These papers basically revealed the U.S. Action Plan - after the fact. 

These web pages were my early research - when I knew the what - but not the who, why and how. 

New Federalism
Coup d'etat


Trojan Horse

The "national" computer systems that were designed to support an integrated North American Union are Trojan Horse systems.  They have the facade of being for civilian purpose - but in fact, they are for military purposes - to support the control of the population for the coup forces. 

Extracting from previous work (1991 - The Year the World Changed.  Note:  Some of the links no longer work because the documents were moved.  I will correct them if I can find the original documents.  In the meantime however, the purpose of presenting this information is to show first that what was presented as a 21st century highway system for one purpose - actually was for a different - and very un-American purpose - surveillance and control. 

Florida - Strategic Plan for Corridors (public face)
Florida- Strategic Plan - Intermodal Transportation System

1991 - Strategic Highway Network (STRAHNET) and STRAHNET Connectors, excerpt from the DOD STRAHNET Guide

"The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 and the National Highway System Designation Act of 1995 provided for inclusion of STRAHNET and important STRAHNET Connectors in the 160,955-mile National Highway System (NHS). The primary Connector routes for the Priority 1 and 2 installations and ports are included in the NHS. Federal oversight will ensure optimum maintenance levels for the NHS, thus assuring that the roads can support an emergency deployment. With DOD’s current emphasis on continental US-based military units, the NHS will play an increasingly important role in new deployment scenarios."

As the Department of Defense (DOD) designated agent for public highway matters, the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command Transportation Engineering Agency (formerly Military Traffic Management Command Transportation Engineering Agency (MTMCTEA)) is the proponent for STRAHNET and STRAHNET Connectors. SDDCTEA identified STRAHNET and the Connector routes in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the State transportation departments, the military Services and installations, and the ports. Together, STRAHNET and the Connectors define the total minimum defense public highway network needed to support a defense emergency.

Strategic Highway Network (STRAHNET) and STRAHNET Connectors

"The Strategic Highway Network (STRAHNET) is critical to the Department of Defense's (DoD's) domestic operations. The STRAHNET is a 62,791-mile system of roads deemed necessary for emergency mobilization and peacetime movement of heavy armor, fuel, ammunition, repair parts, food, and other commodities to support U.S. military operations. Even though DoD primarily deploys heavy equipment by rail, highways play a critical role.

The National Highway System
Backbone of our National

"On December 9, 1993, at Union Station in Washington, D.C., U.S. DOT Secretary Federico Peña and FHWA Administrator Slater announced the submission of the National Highway System (NHS) plan to Congress. Peña also outlined his principles and goals for a National Transportation System (NTS)."

"Union Station serves as a fitting backdrop for the unveiling of the National Highway System," said Slater. "Just outside the station, Louisiana Avenue is part of the National Highway System -- demonstrating how the National Highway System can provide links among the many modes that make up our transportation network. In fact, the National Highway System enhances the other modes by linking them.

"The third component is the non-interstate portion of the Strategic Highway Corridor Network (STRAHNET), identified by the Department of Defense in cooperation with the Department of Transportation. It totals about 15,700 miles. Based on the most recent information, including plans for base closures, these corridors and the interstate system have been identified by the Department of Defense as the most critical highway links in our transportation system. As we found during Desert Storm, highway mobility is essential to our national defense by giving us the ability to move troops and equipment to airports, to ports, to rail lines, and to other bases for rapid deployment.

"The fourth component is major Strategic Highway Corridor Network connectors. They consist of 1,900 miles of roads linking major military installations and other defense-related facilities to the STRAHNET corridors. "Collectively, these four components -- all specifically required by ISTEA -- account for 67,500 miles or roughly 43 percent of the proposed system.

The Fusion Centers are an integral component of the Strategic Corridor Network.  They will conduct the police state surveillance - observations of all movement, data collection and strategic actions against targeted civilians. 

The other systems include the national "Human Resource Management System", the nationalized medical records - Health IT system, the Smart Grid - control of energy system,  the Hubzones - Economic Empowerment Zones (former military installations - highly strategic locations); and the Small Business Administration preferences system designed to funnel money to the coup "civilian" forces - disempowering American business owners - and empowering insurgents of the coup. (see page 48 in the "Complete Report" below.

So now we know the significance of Lurita Doan's story:  Money for Nothing

SMEs and Standardization in Europe  (and it's evil twin, the United States)

At a Ministerial meeting in Brussels in 1995, eleven projects for integrated international computer systems were launched.  A paper describing these projects was presented at the Minister's meeting in Cologne in 1996.  The paper called simply, "The Complete Report".  It conveniently did not have a title page on it - presumably because it applied globally.

The Complete Report 

Information and communication technologies are developing at a breath-taking pace. They represent
the foundation of the coming Information Society which will establish completely new
structures in economy and society. This process is chiefly characterised by the globalisation of
communication and of all activities linked to it.

National frontiers are losing their significance. We are becoming global players, and services and
goods can be produced in any part of the world. At the same time there is no aspect of human life
and no group in society which is not affected by the new information networks and their potential
for growth, wealth-creation and prosperity.

In order to exploit this potential we urgently need international cooperation at all levels and on
all factors which impede the full development of the Information Society

In view of this challenge the German government has always placed great emphasis on global
cooperation. This was reflected in its active role in the Global Information Society initiative
taken by the G 7 Heads of State and Government at the summit meeting in Naples in July 1994
and at the subsequent Ministerial meeting in Brussels in 1995 which launched eleven pilot
projects for the Global Information Society.

I am delighted to present the final report on this work to the public on the occasion of the Cologne
G 8 summit meeting, which is being held under the German presidency.

The pilot projects are an impressive demonstration of the potential of the Information Society in
many areas, such as commerce, culture, education, the environment, health and public
They have led to the establishment of new structures of cooperation which will
remain effective even after the end of the pilot phase. The involvement of a growing number of
Non-G 8 countries, including developing countries, was one of the most encouraging aspects of
the projects, as was the participation of representatives from industry and research.

The report continues with a layman's description of each of the 11 projects for integrated, international computer systems - so please at least scan the report. 


Virtual "Governance"  

The "really great" thing about a 21st century, digital coup d'etat is that the power behind the throne can stay hidden by virtue of eGovernment - a virtual government face, run by the people behind the curtain.  Of course they expose themselves by the policies they are implementing which are anything but American  -   for example, use of the Census as an excuse to GPS mark the coordinates of your front door; the NAIS premises registration and animal tracking system; the fusion centers and surveillance systems being installed on all highways; the RFID chipped identification so that your movements can be tracked.  It is the quintessential system of control for the ultimate police state.
