Collapsing Local Government
A couple of weeks ago, Erin Ryan of the We The People radio program out of Redding, California invited me to be a guest on her program to talk about Public-Private Partnerships. She'd been ill and I've been busy with my Smart Meter issue so we didn't get a chance to talk about what we were going to talk about until the night before the program. In the course of the conversation, Erin was telling me about some developers who were going to build a mall outside of town at a location that didn't have the proper infrastructure, the project would pull shoppers out of the downtown and the size of the mall seemed overly ambitious given the population and the condition of the economy. As Erin was talking, I thought, I know this story. I wrote this story - but it wasn't about Redding, it was about Star, Idaho.
The first time I wrote about Star, I just did a timeline because there were so many players involved and what they were doing was so anomalous that I had a hard time keeping it straight, but what I did know is that whatever was happening was related to Agenda 21. Last year, I expanded the Star timeline into a story format. With all my research on foreign trade zones (Trojan Triangles), the picture that comes together is a formula plan to collapse local, elected representative government replacing it with a regional, metropolitan governing structure run by a "public-private partnership" committee (soviet). It is a fascist system that collectivizes the departments of government into specialized districts over which the taxpayer/citizens have no control. It cannibalizes government from the inside out. The punch line is the definition of an inland port connected to a corridor (shipping lane) that allows the zone to be governed under Admiralty Law as opposed to the law of the land.
On the citizen side, it starts out with a ridiculous development plan that gets the citizens riled up and then it's showtime:
|On the public side, the Feds
swoop in with money for enhanced 9-11 - but in order to get that
money, they need to have cross jurisdictional agreements for first
responders - for the sake of efficiency. That means agreements
between local police departments and county sheriffs. In order for
the local police department to participate, they need the city mayors to
have a cross jurisdictional agreement. This results in a
metropolitan regional emergency services district.
On the citizen side, community change agents swoop in with money to organize the grassroots to fight the evil developers. The developers bring in their change agents. Of course, the FEDs have grant money ready and waiting for "community planning". The resolution to this dialectic is a regional land use and zoning agreement including a packaged set of zoning and building codes. This packaged set of codes is supplied by the Smart Growth Network.
Once the soviet (committee or commission) is established for land use and zoning, your elected officials are no longer in control. They become puppets of the soviet. Collectivization of the other functions of local government can then take place - probably - most significantly, consolidating the information systems of local government - again in the name of efficiency and cost savings - probably accomplished by a contractor who takes over the systems for the purpose of the consolidations.
As I've been saying for the last 10 years, it is the consolidation of government functions through systems design and control of the computer systems that is the essence and power of the 'New World Order'. By definition it is a fascist, corporate system combined with collectivization and management of the "assets" of the corporation. It is the privatization of government through the privatization of the administrative functions of government.
Today in my inbox, there was an email from Charlotte Iserbyt. Charlotte has a treasure trove of documents that she's collected over the years that she sends out to researchers as we all try to put the pieces of the puzzle together to understand what is happening to our country. The document she sent today, is the capstone for me. It pretty much let's me say, "Case Closed".
The Garvey Memo is followed by source information for the Houlihan Plan that was produced during Reagan's term as Governor of California. I knew about the Houlihan Plan but this is the first time I've seen the Garvey Memo.
Of course there is much more to the story, but it's too big to put on one webpage. Last year I did try to tell the story in a powerpoint presentation. It has all the major elements that are, I hope, self-explanatory.
