US President George W. Bush said in an interview Tuesday he was forced to sacrifice free market principles to save the economy from “collapse.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jyyKrPjYt7VhpS8G8DrRkr18B0hA

Did that shoe really hit Bush in the head for him to make such a statement asks http://flapsblog.com/2008/12/16/did-the-iraqi-journalists-shoe-really-hit-george-w-bush-in-the-head/.  Venezuela’s, Chavez went so far as to applaud the shoe throwing action. 

Students of economics might argue that governments propping up of the economy is socialism, it is another thing to have your president say it out right.

How to solve the problem is not making statements like that in the first place.  It shows our vulnerability, that we are defeated and weak.  That we need to be rescued.  With every last breath, he should have defended that capitalism works and this “abandonment” is a temporary fix, but he didn’t.  Bush it seems, told the truth that America is heading for a North American Union and a New Global Financial Order.     

America could be ready to be pounced upon with Russians heading to Cuba for war games, and the Middle East, Russia, China all have nuclear capability aimed.  http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=081215151217.gl11u87v&show_article=1  Putin blamed the US for the cause of the global financial meltdown in the first place and so did Brown.  You think Russia wants to get even?  Remember The Cuban Missile Crisis?

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for a New Global Financial Order that would increase the adoption of trade treaties and increase the role of the International Monetary Fund in offering credit on the same scale as after World War Two.  “Now we have to create the institutions that are relevant not for national or sheltered economies but for global economies with global capital movements and competition.”  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/financialcrisis/3202056/Gordon-Brown-urges-EU-to-rebuild-global-financial-institutions.html  Brown went further to say, “To make sure that the problems that developed in the financial system, problems that we know started in America, that these problems do not return again.” 

Maybe these problems started with the International Monetary Fund, The United Nations, the World Bank in the first place.  Wouldn’t those in the most powerful of positions have the most to gain?  Who is going to purchase distressed assets?  Russia, China and the Gulf oil states that’s who.  America is for sale. 

Liberals would want us to butt out, Obama wants to throw more money at the problems while Republicans want to end the bailouts.  Is it all one step closer to a North American Union and a One World Order? 

“George, you weren’t forced to do it. You wanted to do it. You want to dissolve the sovereignty of the United States and become part of the one-world government. You did this by choice, George, and we know it!” says Bruce Tyson at http://word.truthintheword.org/archives/2277

Lest we forget, the US Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933. 48 Stat .1,  Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt being bankrupt and insolvent.  H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress session June 5, 1933. http://tucnak.fsv.cuni.cz/~calda/Documents/1930s/EmergBank_1933.html  Roosevelt also issued Executive Order 6102, requiring all private gold be turned in for paper money at face value. 

The Wall Street Journal says, “President-elect Barack Obama’s economic team is considering an economic-stimulus program that will be far larger than the two-year, half-trillion-dollar plan under consideration two weeks ago, according to people familiar with the team’s thinking.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122913735606103803.html While all of Obama’s projects are under debate, That One is taking his family on a two week vacation to Hawaii for the Christmas Holiday.  I’d call that irresponsible, and just who is footing the bill? 

Obama, like Bush, has pledged to cooperate with the UN to institute a global tax in support of the Millennium Development Task Force goals. http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/Obama_NWO.pdf  seemly a further erosion of our sovereignty.

 …” the producing economy of people who work for a living simply can no longer generate enough purchasing power for people either to pay their debts or allow them to purchase what is being sold in the marketplace. In turn it is the debt burden and the loss of societal purchasing power that are crashing the stock market. Thus the collapse of the financial economy has started to destroy the producing economy as well.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=9596 David Cook calls our current condition,a “perfect storm,” and that efforts to help the economy are merely, “band-aids on band-aids.  On the extreme, he also believes we are witness to not only the collapse of the U.S. , but more than likely the final crash of Western civilization.

For now, the treasury must be burning up the trees of the rain forest in printing so much money.  Where are all the environmentalists when you need them?   What of complete social destabilization?  What do you do with millions of homeless, out of work people?  Maybe Bush wasn’t so far off base in putting the Army on active duty on US Soil. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/09/30/militarization-of-america-a-state-of-emergency/

At the far end of the spectrum, “Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose.  Garden Plot is the program  to control the populations.  Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments .  FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and will head up all operations.  The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.” writes http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/fema.htm

What if the rumors of FEMA camps aren’t rumors?  For a potential list of sites go here http://www.rense.com/general17/statebystate.htm.  And for more discussions with video of alleged camps go here  http://www.apfn.org/apfn/camps.htm .

In the Main Stream Media, The SanFranciso Gate  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/ED5OUPQJ7.DTL says that, “Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of rail cars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees. According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”

http://justanothercoverup.com/?p=356 goes into further detail why there appears to be a large scale press cover up.  The Press? Yes the press- the same people like the LA Times who refused to release a tape of Obama at a dinner and just this week reported Obama not guilty of selling his Senate seat in the Blagojevich looming scandal.  Last I heard from Patrick Fitzgerald the case was under investigation.

At the very extreme http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-moment13-2008dec13,0,2231803.story “I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president. I said on my home page in August that if he lost to expect to see the ‘riots’ that 2 Peter 2:13 tells us about. He didn’t lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008, as I said.”  in reporting about Parowan Prophet aka Leland Freeborn.  He believes, “These riots, according to his prophecy, will encourage the “old, hard-line Soviet guard” to seize the moment and rain down nukes on the United States, killing at least 100 million of us.”  Sure the fuck hope he is wrong.

As David Rockefeller reportedly said in 1973 when he and others formed the Trilateral Commission, “We will have this a Socialist Nation by the end of the year 2000.”  Maybe, he was off by a few years. 

As for writing on Ahrcanum- this site, if the Supremes, Obama and the rest of the world can turn from the cares facing us, so can I.   I am off to pursue the pursuits of happiness.

I pray all of this crap is just a bunch of crap, that America stays strong, and remains home of the free.  Shame, shame on all of us if it is not.

God Bless America.

The U.S. Constitution has apparently been suspended in parts of America in an effort to protect its borders from everything from illegal immigration to terrorists.  Rightful to protect its border, except that the border has been seemingly redefined to include a 100 mile wide strip that goes around the entire “external boundary” of the entire United States.

“The extraordinary authority that the U.S. government possesses at its borders is spilling into regular American streets, affecting large populations of its citizens. Nearly two-thirds of the entire population of the country now lives within 100 miles of the U.S. land and coastal borders, an area that has been designated by the government as a “Constitution Free Zone”.  http://www.naturalnews.com/024734.html  and posted similarly at  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/10/22/163652/37/734/638977

Could all liberties are put aside if you are rightly or wrongly id’s as having done something wrong?  Would there will be no guarantee of The Bill of Rights protection, no referring to case law and no lawyers to argue on your behalf? 

The ACLU lays claim that “Border Patrol agents are not remaining confined to a border security purpose.”  http://www.aclu.org/privacy/37293res20081022.html and it’s blog http://blog.aclu.org/?s=constitution+free+zone says that “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is allowed to exercise extraordinary authority that would not normally be permitted under the Constitution.

(ATS) traveler risk assessment program, identity and tracking systems such as electronic (RFID) passports, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),  Secure Border Initiative Network (SBINet) or “virtual border fence” and unmanned aerial vehicles (aka “drone aircraft”) all monitor movement.   

The Department of Homeland Security is in itself, necessary.  Agents of the FBI, CIA, NSA must cooperate to protect the homeland, but using the word ‘homeland’ outside of a historical discussion of Germany has allowed law enforcement authorities access to broad powers and is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics.  To assume an abuse of power is fear mongering, but fair minded caution must be exercised.  The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, and FISA-Protect America Act were enacted post 9-11 for good reason and have been tweaked numerous times to keep America Safe with as little intrusion as possible.

It becomes paramount that we question how secure the technology is in foreign countries and in our own country.  http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article9930.shtml  The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America author James Bamford writes about how spying on American citizens has been outsourced to companies closely linked to Israel’s intelligence services. “With unrivaled access to sources and documents, Bamford details how the agency has conducted domestic surveillance without court approval, and he frames it in the context of the NSA’s ongoing hunt for information about today’s elusive enemies. http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Factory-Ultra-Secret-Eavesdropping-America/dp/0385521324

The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, NAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

The far side would have us believe that we have a ruling oligarchy that professes an agenda of militarism, corporatism, and socialism that encroaches itself upon citizens at the expense of the general population with more domestic control and intimidation.  Maybe the far isn’t so far off? Obama has proposed a mandatory civilian force http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=2318 with equal funding to the military which is already on active duty on our soil http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/09/army_homeland_090708w/, Charles Rangle has a Draft Bill just lying in wait http://www.talkleft.com/story/2006/11/19/152217/04  , “The Bailout” has the government owning banks and Obama’s policies in waiting have been compared to Marxism. http://louisproyect.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/are-bailouts-marxist/

For now, we will wait to see what decisions Obama makes to shield our country from danger and protect her citizens.  “Let’s be clear here and shed whatever illusions one may have about the outcome of last Tuesday’s election. Despite the overwhelming rejection of the Bush administration and their surrogates by the American people, the incoming Obama administration will pay lip-service to civil liberties and the rule of law. This however, will amount to no more than a better public relations campaign, image management and product roll-out. America rebranded.” wrote Tom Burghardt  http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864  His blog can be found at http://antifascist-calling.blogspot.com/

For now though our Bill of Rights are safe.  In an all too plausible court case, The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision narrowly “ruled to uphold the Bill of Rights, the very tenets upon which American society is based. “After carefully considering the relevance of the 10 inviolable rights that comprise the ideological foundation on which our nation is built, the court finds that these basic freedoms remain important for the time being, and should not be overturned,” read the majority opinion authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the tie-breaking vote. “Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America.” The Supreme Court’s latest decision comes on the heels of last month’s 6-3 ruling to abolish the pursuit of happiness from the three inalienable rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence. http://www.theonion.com/content/news_briefs/supreme_court_upholds_bill?utm_source=onion_rss_daily   Kudos to Justice Anthony Kennedy for saving The Bill of Rights and shame, shame, shame on those Justices who sought not to protect the Bill of Rights and who did solemnly swear to uphold those rights. From Wiki-  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_office#Federal_judicial_oaths

For readers are not familiar with The Onion, the Supreme Court Ruling is a satire and did not occur.  No Court has had issue with the Constitution Free Zone, yet.  When standing behind, beside or in front of the ACLU, keep in mind it may not stand up to protect all of The Bill of Rights either, “ACLU doesn’t mean all of the original 10 amendments because its policy No. 47 says, “Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected,” thereby ignoring the Second Amendment.”  http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/09/06/aclu-very-selective-in-upholding-bill-of-rights/

Defending our borders, The U.S. Constitution and our privacy laws is a balancing act that will require Obama’s political vision be clear and forthright through out his entire Presidency.   Good luck with that theory of  a President being forthright though. Obama himself has barred the public from seeing his birth certificate, college transcripts, medical background, etc., so I’d say Obama’s privacy has been protected pretty dang well here in America.
