The first day of the
new Millennium, January 1, 2000 was the date the United States came
under 'new management'. It was the date of the silent
coup d'etat on America. January 1st was judgment day for the Y2k
computer system time bomb. The date passed without any
of the major disasters that had been predicted as
possibilities but that didn't mean that nothing happened.
The silent coup d'etat happened.
The Y2k date glitch had
to be fixed - there were no options. This was the
opportunity for the government information technology
contractors to 'capture and control' the government's
critical computer systems all at once without anybody
suspecting anything until the time was ripe to use the power
afforded them by the control of the systems. It
was - as Art Cebrowski called it - net-centric warfare.
Scale Computer Systems
People seem not to understand the
significance of large scale (i.e. thousands, 10's of
thousands, 100's of thousands, millions of people, processes,
locations, functions) computer systems to manage large scale
operations - such as our government. They look at the
PC on their desk and they think "what's the big deal?".
The big deal is that a PC is to a large scale computer
system as an ant is to an elephant. Without the large
scale computer systems producing
accurate information for large scale operations, the large
scale operations halt... and as the lack of information
persists, things deteriorate into chaos as people try to
The keeper of the
information systems controls the operation. For
example, consider the possibility that the reports showing
the financial condition of the country given to Congress are
fraudulent. Their 'view of the world' is shaped by
those reports. If the reports are wrong -
intentionally or not, it means that Congress will make
wrong decisions on legislation. It is in this way that
the keepers of the information can control the operation.
They can run it to ground if that is their plan. The
ways that the keepers of the information can wreak havoc in
an organization are limited only by their imaginations.
In the decade prior
to the millennium rollover, George H.W. Bush
and Bill Clinton set the stage for the coup. Bush
dismantled SAC and stood up
STRATCOM. STRATCOM is the
military unit that was responsible for integrating
the command structure of the Services - creating the 'Joint
consolidation of leadership in the Services was the means by
which the U.S. nuclear assets were put under the command of
one man - one general and the old-line military leaders were
Bill Clinton dismantled our government
and privatized a significant portion of it under the guise
of 'reinventing government'. "Doing more with less"
meant getting rid of public employees and replacing them
with contracts with private corporations further expanding
the concept of 'public-private partnerships' which began
under Bush with his 1000 Points of Light network.
'public-private' model, government becomes a
facade with the power of government transferred
to the corporate side of the equation.
This is the means by which communist social
change agents are being injected into our
communities to 'transform' the American way of
life to the communist model - including
elimination of private property rights, herding
people into 'human settlements', implementing
communist control of the labor market,
indoctrinating children into the communist
'soviet' system of government. They are
implementing the communist UN System.
I suspect that the way the
scam worked was that Clinton contracted out management of
government functions to private corporations. The
deals were no doubt loss leaders so that huge savings could
be realized to justify the contracts. The savings were
used to produce the glowing reports of budget surpluses as
far as the eye could see. Obviously however, once the
computer systems and functions are firmly in the hands of
contractors and the government no longer has expertise to
manage the functions, it's just a matter of time before the
blackmail begins and the price skyrockets. Plus...
there is always plausible deniability for anything that goes
wrong because most people don't understand computer systems
management - and the consulting firms have trained corporate
management to think that a warm body is just as good as a
And.... not surprisingly (I was a
contractor in the IT business), I
suspected right. He who controls the computer systems.... controls the enterprise. 12/27/2005
Donald Rumsfeld's congressional
testimony on July 16th 2001
We have a crisis in the workforce in the
Pentagon. There are almost three times
as many civilian employees as military
employees. Over the next three to five
years, it's estimated that at least half
of those civilian employees are going to
be eligible for retirement. Those who
are left have inadequate preparation for
the kind of technological demands that
the Department of Defense needs from
them. And it's not just people in the
field, it's people at headquarters. The
Pentagon is one of the -- perhaps the
largest, most outmoded and even
anachronistic organization maybe in the
world. And we need to figure out how the
people that we need can be brought into
the Pentagon to do the jobs that are
necessary for the 21st century.
Over the last seven years there has been
a Reinventing Government initiative,
where several hundred thousand federal
civilian employees were dismissed. They
retired, whatever, downsized. Almost all
of that was in the Department of
Defense. Many of those positions have
not been replaced, an we don't have the
people coming in that have the skills
that are necessary, particularly in
terms of technology.
As you know, the Department of Defense
really is not in charge of its civilian
workforce, in a certain sense. It's the
OPM, or Office of Personnel management,
I guess. There are all kinds of long-
standing rules and regulations about
what you can do and what you can't do. I
know Dr. Zakheim's been trying to hire
CPAs because the financial systems of
the department are so snarled up that we
can't account for some $2.6 trillion in
transactions that exist, if that's
believable. And yet we're told that we
can't hire CPAs to help untangle it in
SEC. RUMSFELD: Well, it is a -- it
clearly is disturbing that the
department is without the financial
management systems so that you can track
dollars in a way that you can feel
confident, when you answer someone's
question as to what happened to various
transactions. Every report I have seen
indicates that it will take years and
years and years to do the job.
And who do they have to rely on to help them to straighten out the mess? The very same contractors who screwed them - and us. The multinationals corporations - the IT consulting firms, the accounting firms that helped with the Enron corporate fraud, and the defense technology corporations . They are draining our economy - exporting the best of our technology and knowledge jobs to India and China.

REP. FRELINGHUYSEN: Part of the business world invests its time in what's called the Business Executives for National Security, BENS group. I know that we've briefly touched on BRAC, and that's a hot point, it's controversial. But that group has come up with a lot of, I think, some great suggestions, including improving process for contracting services, revising the A-76 process in terms of out- sourcing competitions successfully, making the private sector the preferred provider of military family housing, making the private sector the preferred provider of long-haul defense communications, et cetera, et cetera. [Note: this is why the DOD was selling off military housing on Long Island while our soldiers were in Iraq - leaving their families in trouble for housing.]
More from Rumsfeld - earlier in the testimony:
I mean, in other words, I think you've tried to do your best to go down to the White House and ask for the money that's necessary to get this job done, but you've been turned down. And they have said they will not give you the money.
As we're told, you asked for like $38 billion, and they give -- and OMB said you'll only get 15 (billion), and you wound up with 18 (billion). And we appreciate the fact that you got the 18 (billion).
But what I worry about is, if you, as secretary of Defense, and General Shelton know that the country is underfunding the defense budget, then why can't we convince the president and OMB, which seems to be running this government, that we've got to have a significant increase, or we're going to let America's military capability deteriorate? That is unacceptable.
[As an aside... who are the people behind the computerized, paperless voting systems?
Defense Contractors - of course]
Interestingly, it was the congressional hearings
on the torture at Abu Ghraib that informed me of
the extent to which there had been a merger
between the military and the defense contractors - which includes the computer technology
firms. The revealing information that came
out of the hearings was that private contractors
were the interrogators who instigated the torture
of the Iraqi prisoners. That led me to the
military website to search - for information on
'transformation'. I found a
speech by Admiral E. P. Giambastiani that
confirmed my suspicions. The following was
found under the heading 'Transformation'.
The transcript of the speech and the diagrams
stated that 'transformation' was the
corporatization of the military:
Excerpt of speech by Admiral E. P.
"So how can we better integrate industry
and JFCOM? How can you parallel our
process and participate with us on these
initiatives? Brigadier General Jim
Warner will brief our plan tomorrow
afternoon. And as a reward for sticking
around, we can all go golfing
afterwards!" "Joint transformation" is
something that is still not well
understood within the military-both in
the United States and in NATO.
To help tell the story on what we mean
by "joint transformation," I've brought
just three slides. I should make clear
that when I use the term "joint
operations," I mean the BIG "J" in
joint-which refers to a seamless
integration of joint forces, interagency
and multinational and coalition
This is just one example of the
"process" end of transformation. On the
"product" side, you can see that we have
focused our efforts on moving the force
to a joint operational training
environment-and from a force based on
attrition warfare to one that is
designed and trained to
conduct effect-based operations. [9-11 was an effect-based operation].
You can see the "way ahead" must be
aimed at developing and delivering new
4th Block capabilities. We're very
pleased that you are here-and your
continued participation and robust
exchange of information is something
that we will need to successfully move
our collective organizations to the
'partnership' of the information technology
corporations, the defense technology corporations
and the 'joint military command' put the
power of government in their hands - not in the
hands of congress and not in the hands of
government as we knew it.

Corporate Restructuring of America's Defense
So What's Wrong With This?
What's wrong with it - is that the CEO's of
America's largest corporations are American in
name only. They are traitors to America.
They are exporting their corporations to foreign
countries - leaving only the corporate shell here
because the profits are greater to produce in a
foreign countries and then to import into the U.S.
The corporate takeover of
our military is giving over our defense to the
enemy - the multinational corporations who are
loyal only to the bottom line.

entire strategy of becoming a Chinese

MFN for China and the WTO

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep
repeating it, people will eventually
come to believe it. The lie can be
maintained only for such time as the
State can shield the people from the
political, economic and/or military

becomes vitally important for the State
to use all of its power to repress
dissent, for the truth is the mortal
