Cicero Was Right


A few months ago there was a Congressional hearing in which Lou Dobbs testified with Carla Hills, former U.S.T.R representative under the Clinton Administration.  At one point in the hearing, there was a rather bizarre exchange between a Congressman from Maine and Ms. Hills.  In the lead up to his question, the Congressman described the devastation to the Maine economy that had come as a result of the NAFTA agreement.  He then asked Ms. Hills what if anything would she change about the agreement.  She then proceeds to talk about how it had hurt Mexico and said that Mexico should proceed with the International Highway and pass a G.I. bill of rights for education of their people.  She acknowledges that there are "problems in the hemisphere" but that is the closest she came to acknowledging that American citizens are suffering due to NAFTA and the unconstitutional merger of our country with Canada and Mexico. 

Think back to the year or so following 9-11.  What was the main reason given for the failures of 9-11?   Failure to communicate.  Stovepipes.   And what was the prescribed cure?   Money for new Information Systems - computer systems to share information

And militarily what happened?   They stood up Northern Command and the guy who failed on 9-11 - General Ralph Eberhardt who was in charge of NORAD was made the first commander of Northern Command. 

Just this week, when I was researching David Addington, Cheney's Chief of Staff (after Libby went to jail), I discovered that he is more closely affiliated to Democrats than to Republicans.  He was also the legal mind behind the torture memos, the signing statements and most of the unconstitutional actions of this administration.  If he were trying to make the Republicans look bad, he couldn't have done a better job of it.   And what else have they done?  The Bankruptcy Bill ( As Harry Reid was "giving in" to voting on this legislation speaking is his best *sigh* what can I do voice, I heard Maria Cantwell in the background almost hysterical..."but you don't know what they've done!"), the Medicare Drug legislation that about a hundred billion underestimated, and the war funding... billions in cash shipped to Iraq, billions more authorized for spending... but funny thing - the troops have a hard time getting equipment.  There are other things too but I think Lenin said it best, "The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves."    

So why would I say such things?  Prior to the Bush Administration, Addington had been general counsel to the American Trucking Association.  While David Addington doesn't have much on the public record that one could follow to find out what he is about, there is another person who was involved with the American Trucking Association who has a tremendous amount of material on the public record.  That would be one traitorous, ignorant little freak named Thomas Donohue

Thomas Donohue, President and CEO, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Prior to his current post, Donohue served for 13 years as president and chief executive officer of the American Trucking Associations, the national organization of the trucking industry.

Donohue is on the record supporting every policy that is bringing about the downfall of the American economy - from open borders with Mexico to the importation of foreign workers on visa (he once said of knowledge workers:  "we can breed them here or we can get them over there").  

We know that Sandy Berger was involved in setting up the Summits of the Americas which were the beginning of the merger between the United States, Canada and Mexico.  We know that George Tenet was busy gutting the CIA and creating a paper trail for the false lead to the Middle East to have ready for 9-11.  We know that there was a plan in place to globalize the U.S. military while leaving the U.S. with a crippled domestic force because both Adm. Art Cebrowski and Thomas Barnett told us so. 

And William Perry, Clinton's Secretary of Defense gave Mexico the weapons of war and trained their soldiers to fight the people of Chiapas who were being run off their land as Plan Puebla which is the International Corridor through Mexico got underway.  Of course, fighting the war on drugs was the reason given, but that was a lie.

Savage Repression in Mexico, Michael Steinberg

As the low-intensity war in southern Mexico developed since 1994, the US and Mexican governments forged closer military relationships in counter-insurgency, under the guise of anti-drug operations.

In October 1995 William Perry became the first US Secretary of Defense to visit Mexico in modern times. His meeting with his Mexican counterpart, General Enrique Cervantes Aguirre, brought immediate results. "Within months [after Perry's visit], a first group of young Mexican officers were training in anti-drug operations at Fort Bragg, NC", according to a front page story in the New York Times (12/29/97).

Cervantes Aguirre reciprocated by visiting William Perry in Washington in April, 1996. At that time they signed a military aid package to Mexico. The agreement gave $50 million to Mexico for arms and training.

Equipment included 73 Huey helicopters, 4 C-26 reconnaissance planes and 500 armored personnel carriers (bringing Mexico's total to 7000), as well as high tech spy hardware, rifles, grenades and flame throwers.

And even the Security and Prosperity Partnership had it's origins in the Clinton Administration:

Defense Implications of the Free Trade Area of the Americas, William Perry, Sec. Def, 1998

And William J. Perry was codirector of the Preventative Defense Project, a joint project between Stanford and Harvard.  one team of which - headed by the other codirector, Ashton B. Carter - produced the report: Catastrophic Terrorism:  A National Policy.  Another member of the treason team was Elaine Kamarck.  She recently gave a presentation on our "new government" titled, "End of Government As We Know It". 

Interestingly, Carter and Perry have been whipping up the nuclear holocaust "terror terror terror" threat while at the same time criticizing the Bush Administration for supposedly going after it.  All my instincts say: "blackmail blackmail blackmail" and that the unscheduled trip to Omaha on September 11, 2001 9-11 was to deliver the message to George.  On November 9, 2001 11-9 George Bush signed a knowledge trade agreement with India that was a major torpedo to our economy as it meant the export of our knowledge industries: software, biotechnology, e-Entertainment - including the animation segment of the film industry .  That Knowledge Trade Initiative was a Clinton Administration initiative - leading the charge was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Excerpt from Mark H. Gaffney's article titled, "How Clinton Set The Stage For Bush" (quoting Dr. Helen Caldicott:

"To my horror I found that seventy-five military industrial corporations such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, TRW Aerojet, Hughes Space, Sparta Corp, and Vista Technologies had produced a Long Range Plan, written with the cooperation of the US Space Command, announcing a declaration of US space leadership and calling for the funding of defensive system and 'a seamlessly integrated force of theatre land, sea, air and space capabilities through a world-wide global defense information network.' The US Space Command would also 'hold at risk' a finite number of 'high-value' earth targets with near instantaneous force application­­­the ability to kill from space...I also discovered that the much-vaunted missile defense system was to be closely integrated with the weaponization of space, and that all of the hardware and software would be made by the same firms, at the combined cost of hundreds of billions of dollars to the US taxpayers."[1]
The plan envisaged "full spectrum dominance," that is, US military domination of land, sea, air and space. Although US planners sought to portray this next generation of technological wizardry as defensive, in actuality, the planned systems, if implemented, amounted to a major break with the 1972 ABM Treaty, and with long-standing US commitments to maintain the peaceful status of outer space. The cold logic of dominance meant that the project was offensive in nature.


William J. Perry also serves on the board of directors of Anteon International Corporation and several emerging high-tech companies and is chairman of Global Technology Partners.

Oh.... and what about the Information Systems which was what this commentary was supposed to be about?   I realized this morning that what Lockheed is doing - what couldn't be done in the halls of government because it would be treasonous and unconstitutional - is that they are building the combined government North American databases and systems.  They are doing the administrative merging of the governments of Canada, Mexico and the U.S.   These contracts are worth hundreds of billions - if not trillions of dollars to Lockheed and Boeing.  Certainly enough money for a corporation to participate in treason. 


Cicero was right:

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear: Cicero Marcus Tullius
