The DHS Defends Globalism, Not America

The Department Of Homeland Security is the very epitome of unnecessary bureaucracy.  Its formation was predicated on the existence of terrorist threats, many of which the U.S. government and orbiting alphabet agencies either created through acts of war, or fabricated out of thin air.  Its policies of centralization were sold to the public as necessary to prevent systemic “miscommunications” that never actually took place.  Throughout our history, it has been a rare occasion indeed when an attack falls upon American infrastructure or interests that was not influenced, directly or indirectly, by the actions of agencies which were supposedly employed to prevent such events from ever occurring.  Whether through ‘blowback’, or through ‘false flag’, frankly, most of the harm that comes to our nation is perpetrated by the guiding hand of our inexorably corrupt government.   

Knowing that the DHS was established on false pretenses forces us to question the agency’s true intentions, especially when a professional fear-monger like Secretary Janet Napolitano announces that the globalization of the world economy falls within her jurisdiction:

http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/01/27/the-urgent-need-to-protect-the-global-supply-chain/

Average citizens would assume that the DHS is a U.S.-centric institution, and regardless of its Orwellian behavior, is at the very least a distinctly American brand of tyranny.  However, under encroaching strategies enforced since 2006 through the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), it is becoming very apparent that the Department Of Homeland Security is quickly taking on an “all-of-nation” role, most prominently in the defense of globalization:

http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/NIPP_Plan.pdf

In her most recent op-ed / propaganda piece published by Reuters, Napolitano makes it clear that the business of the DHS is lately focused on what she calls “global supply chain security”.  This by itself could be seen as a perfectly logical extension of the DHS mandate to protect America.  Unfortunately, the situation is not that simple.  A few talking points and guidelines within the NIPP platform are rather disturbing, and create an open door for the internationalization of the DHS.

Ironically, Napolitano sets the stage first by pointing out the brittle nature of globalization, along with its numerous vulnerabilities:

“A vulnerability or gap in any part of the world has the ability to affect the flow of goods and people thousands of miles away. For instance, just three days after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear tragedies struck Japan last March, U.S. automakers began cutting shifts and idling some plants at home. In the days that followed, they did the same at their factories in more than 10 countries around the world…”

As I have pointed out many times in the past, the utter lack of redundancy within our globalized system makes it the most impractical and downright destructive economic model in history.  Janet Napolitano seems to agree at least in part on this point.  The problem is that the weaknesses of globalization are not a mistake; they are a deliberate and useful tool for further centralization of once sovereign economies.  Instead of addressing the obvious concern that globalization does not work, Napolitano, like every other globalist in our government, claims that it must be propped up at all costs for the “greater good”:

“Because protecting the global supply chain is inherently an international challenge, it will take an international effort to meet it. The tremendous benefits we all reap from an interdependent global economy means that we are all stakeholders in the security of that system…”

“…we will continue to think globally, enhancing our coordination with the international community and international stakeholders who have key supply chain roles and responsibilities. We will seek to develop and implement global standards, strengthen detection, interdiction, and information-sharing capabilities, and promote end-to-end supply chain security efforts with the international community.”

What “benefits” are we “reaping” from globalization?  I haven’t the foggiest idea.  The internationalization of banking and finance has led to the creation and subsequent implosion of the world’s largest debt bubble and further devaluation of many of the world's currencies.  Centralized and corporatized food production has led to a complete lack of self reliance within our society, contributed to food scarcity, not abundance, and opened our means of sustenance to the mad-science and genetic criminality of monstrous entities like Monsanto.  The globalization of law through treaty has supplanted the U.S. Constitution, fed the growth of unaccountable and unelected councils and committees, and stricken our country with policy initiatives that weren’t even written by officials that live here.  There are absolutely no substantial benefits to globalization that outweigh its considerable detriments, unless, of course, you are one of the elite few who stand at the helm of the machine.

At the Davos Economic Summit which took place in the final week of January, Napolitano announced a program called the “National Strategy For Global Supply Chain Security”: 

http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/national_strategy_for_global_supply_chain_security.pdf

Within this plan, the DHS seeks to unite with international corporate interests in an effort to ensure the dominance of the globalist ideal of centralized economy.  The collectivist rhetoric inherent within the document above is apparent.  Napolitano summarizes it well when she states:

“As globalization brings nations closer together, we need to jointly disprove and leave behind the notion that security and efficiency cannot coexist, and together build a security architecture that better uses information to assess risk. By taking a coordinated, strategic and thoughtful approach, we can expedite legitimate commerce while focusing our attention on that much smaller portion that poses harm. Security and confidence in the global supply chain enhance our collective economic strength, rather than impeding progress.”

Napolitano treats globalism as an inevitability; a future without recourse and without option.  A smart person might ask; “What business is it of Janet Napolitano to comment on the global economic model, let alone utilize DHS resources in its defense!”  But look at it this way; by using the failings of globalization and the spectral boogie-man of terrorism as a rationale, the DHS has created a grey area in which the U.S. government can be more fully integrated into the global corporate dynamic, which furthers the disintegration of American sovereignty. 

The global supply chain encompasses everything!  It is a vast artificial international construct.  For the DHS to truly “defend” its integrity, it will be REQUIRED to sacrifice the specific and sovereign interests of the U.S.  In a globalized trade system, every economy is important, as long as it does not compete with any other economy.  The U.S. economy is no exception.  Harmonization diminishes the wealth of more successful nations and transfers it to less successful nations.  This transfer of wealth does, in a sense, create equality; it makes everyone equally poor.  By becoming the militant hand of globalization, the DHS is put in the position of hurting America in order to “save” America. 

The National Strategy For Global Supply Chain Security document is extraordinarily vague when it comes to the manner in which the DHS will implement defense directives.  More DHS agents at shipping ports?  Of course.  More DHS involvement in airline cargo centers?  Certainly.  But what about DHS agents overseeing trucking and freight, or even stationed at highway checkpoints (remember, the TSA is an agency under the direct authority of the DHS)?  What about DHS agents acting as permanent corporate liaisons?  Will corporations decide who is a threat to the global supply chain and who isn’t?  What about the usage of copyrighted materials on the internet?  Is this a disruption of global trade?  How does the DHS actually plan to return a disrupted supply line to normal efficiency?  The DHS has no production capacity, and would have to TAKE (possibly by force) a supply from somewhere in order to reinstitute it elsewhere.  What about communities, states, or countries which refuse to participate in globalization?  What about those who choose to decentralize?  Could this not be labeled as an attempt to derail the global system, and thus be interpreted as an act of terrorism?

Under any collectivist society, the act of non-participation is always painted as an attack on the group.  In a fully interdependent system, refusing to contribute automatically hurts others, and therefore, makes you a criminal by default.  These systems are built this way deliberately, in order to control a population by exploiting their sense of innate guilt.  The DHS may claim a limited involvement in globalization, restricted to security issues, but the very process of integration with the international corporate framework as well as foreign institutions makes the agency a catalyst for forced collectivism.  Bombs in shipping containers (the bombs we’re supposed to believe are everywhere), do not warrant the massive shift of our security apparatus into a policy of global centralization.  In the end, this move on the part of the DHS has nothing to do with security, and everything to do with manipulating the attitude of the general public towards globalization.  It is much more difficult to challenge a methodology when that methodology is suddenly treated as a national security issue, and is defended by an army of bureaucrats and blue-shirted thugs.  When a world view is made violently essential to the very survival of a people, defiance is held tantamount to treason, and change, no matter how wise, becomes impossible.

Latest Vegas Odds Puts The Over/Under Of MF Corzine Vaporization At A Staggering $2.0 Ba Ba Billion

His revised estimate, $1.6 billion, applies only to customers who traded commodities at MF Global. The figure does not include potentially hundreds of millions of dollars owed to the firm’s securities industry customers.

OT, but some really great news (/sarc) on MF Global (aka JonCorzineSlushFund):

 

February 10, 2012, 4:36 pm

By BEN PROTESS

8:01 p.m. | Updated

MF Global commodity customers whose cash vanished when the firm collapsed last year are owed $1.6 billion — up significantly from previous estimates — the trustee tasked with recovering the money said on Friday.

The revised figure reflects growing concerns that the trustee will not be able to claw back $700 million in customer money trapped overseas. Until now, the trustee did not include the $700 million when projecting the shortfall, hoping to avoid a battle with MF Global’s British arm, which is holding the customer money.

The Republic is infected with a cancer.

Reminds me of a post:

A foul mood has settled in over enough of America for it to be palpable. For all the good it will do us, there is a US presidential election in a little over nine months from now. With one asterisked exception, all are made men and women, promising but never delivering what we have been conditioned to think we want. People foolishly voting for the words “Hope and Change” were instead treated to the third term of George Bush.

What affects the Republic is a cancer and if left untreated it will surely kill the host. Cancers do not leave of their own volition. They must be removed by force or their environment made so toxic they die off. The environment that this particular cancer thrives on is literally flooded with apathy, willful ignorance and denial. Making the environment inhospitable to this cancer requires that the elements present in that environment that allow it to thrive must be reversed in polarity. That will be very difficult given that a significant portion of that environment gets some or all of its sustenance from the cancer itself and real change, even the very idea of real change, has been and will continue to be met with significant resistance.

This cancer is not new; it is an old cancer, well documented and capable of learning from its mistakes. What is different this time is that there are formidable defenses present in this particular host, defenses that have never been present in any prior host. Will those defenses be brought to bear on this insidious cancer that has eaten its way into the soul of the Republic, and if so, will it be in time to save it? From one perspective, it seems that the only barrier to activating these defenses is simply the will to do so.

Yeah, the "salvagable" point is past. Accepting that fact is scary, but it is also liberating.

America, as we thought of it, is dead, and DHS is a FAR greater threat to us than Al Queda ever was.

Time to change our minds, stop playing by the old script, and take our future into our own hands.

Cathartes Aura's picture

it IS liberating, if one will truly allow it to be.

America, as we thought of it, is dead

amrka, as we were taught to believe it as an entity, never existed - as BSmith says above "it is a vast artificial international construct" - it has only ever existed in our minds, with all the "mom & apple pie & have a nice day & they hate us for our free-dumbs" and any other rhetoric each individual uses to defend their reality. . .

how much of this fiction each individual chooses to cling to will be the degree of pain that can be tolerated as the dissonance and denial dial gets turned up a notch, incre-MENTALLY, going forward. . . many will simply curl up inside, adapt to survive, some will rebel against the monolith, some will go to ground.

it's (beyond) time to allow awareness of the situation to sink in, and decide how, and who, you'll be going forward.

Time to change our minds, stop playing by the old script, and take our future into our own hands.

Indeed. Awareness is the only cure, necessary and sufficient in itself, as awareness of the situation spontaneously brings the will to solve the problem.

The Cheka makes the Gestapo look like Cub Scouts:

 

The Russian Communists plan to strategically use terror to intimidate their White adversaries into submission. On orders from Lenin and Trotsky, the "Red Terror" is announced by the Jewish Red Yakov Sverlov. The Red Terror is marked by mass arrests in the middle of the night, executions, and hideously creative tactics of torture. As many as 100,000 Russians are murdered in the Red Terror, carried out by Jewish-run Cheka (secret police).

Among the verified atrocities committed, often in view of victim’s family members, are:

40,000 White prisoners publicly hanged in the Ukraine
Burning coals inserted in women's vaginas
Crucifixions

Rapes
Victims submerged in boiling oil or tar

Victims placed in coffins filled with hungry rats
Victims soaked with water, and left to turn into human ice-cubes in the winter weather.
Priests, monks, and nuns have molten lead poured down their throats and are burned alive

 

The demoralizing terror takes a heavy psychological toll on the frightened Russian people.

By 1922, many will have been broken into total submission to the Red monsters of the dreaded Cheka.

Attributing brutality to Jews just because there's a coincidence of genetics, is bigotry.

Napolitano, a two-term governor, has left a clear trail of support for increasing the H-1B visa cap to address what she has argued is a shortage of skilled workers....Napolitano also indicated that she wants to make it easier for foreign graduates of U.S. schools to get green cards, bypassing the need for H-1B visa in those cases. Napolitano believes that after they pass a background check, scientists and engineers "should have a green card stapled to their diplomas."

...Because in US 8.5% unemployment is not high enough for STEM grads and to a lawyer/politician, globalization and outsourcing is never a threat.
