Communitarianism

Post by zone on Sun Feb 06, 2011 8:00 pm

The leader of the unheralded transition to a communitarian system in the U.S. is the Israeli founder of the Communitarian Network, Dr. Amitai Etzioni.

"Self-determination movements, a major historical force for more than 200 years, have largely exhausted their legitimacy as a means to create more strongly democratic states. While they long served to destroy empires and force governments to be more responsive to the governed, with rare exceptions self-determination movements now undermine the potential for democratic development in non democratic countries and threaten the foundations of democracy even in the democratic ones. It is time to withdraw moral approval from most of the movements and see them for what they are--destructive." (Etzioni published papers, #227, "The Evils of Self-Determination," Foreign Policy, No.89, (Winter 1992-93), pp.21-35, Reprinted in: Moresh No.2,Vol 2, (Oct 1993), The Annals of the International Institute of Sociology, Vol.IV, (1994),pp.163-176.)

A former member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Etzioni's signature pops up on resolutions passed by the PNAC (Project for a New American Century) and various elite international conferences on global policing. Etzioni co-founded the new science of socio-economics with the former President of the Soviet Union (Mikhail Gorbachev, Green Cross International). Self-labled as a "guru" of communitarian morality, he also lectures and performs government "studies" for the Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies, hosted by George Washington University (GWU) in Washington D.C.

Dr. Amitai Etzioni and the communitarians are rebuilding the world.

"The world needs a new global architecture, additional layers of governance, to deal with issues that neither nations nor traditional forms of intergovernmental organizations can cope with." ("Europe, A Beautiful Idea" by Amitai Etzioni, September 2004 conference at the Hague)

THE COMMUNITARIAN NETWORK

Criminal Justice

Thinking about criminal justice has undergone a major transformation over the past decade. At the core of the shift has been a rediscovery of the importance of community. “Community policing” has become the byword of police departments in numerous cities big and small. Many observers argue that these new police methods–which, among other things, emphasize the importance of order in public spaces and rely on stronger cooperation between police and neighborhood communities–bear at least part of the responsibility for the recent significant declines in crime.

THE COMMUNITARIAN NETWORK

DIVERSITY & RECONCILIATION

Communitarians are also pioneering the study of repentance–official apologies, public rites of reconciliation, truth-finding commissions, and other vehicles whereby mutually aggrieved groups can put the wounds of the past behind them and achieve fresh social harmony.

Communitarianism US Law In The Balance

Post by zone on Sat May 28, 2011 3:54 am

Our government has described its efforts in Iraq as rebuilding a communitarian system in the Middle East, yet this term never comes up in congressional debates, nor is it part of the anti-war speeches.

Communitarianism
US Law In The Balance

By Niki Raapana
4-16-7


The formation of a global government requires very careful planning. A global system must, like all existing political systems, have its own bureaucratic structure for enforcing its own idea of justice. It also needs a philosophical foundation for its principles, its laws and its social and foreign policy. For as much scrutiny as the global government gets from people around the world, it's amazing how little attention is paid to the actual emerging system.

The front-runner for becoming the emerging supra-national synthesis of all nations is called communitarianism. The communitarian philosophy is already established as the basis for the laws, the regional plans, and the expanded enforcement actions necessary to full integration.

Widespread ignorance of communitarianism and denial of the existence of an emerging global legal system has allowed every program necessary to achieve full implementation, unhindered by press or public scrutiny. The vast majority of citizens of the United States do not know what it means when their legislatures say they are "balancing" their laws. They never question why there must be a balance between individual rights and community rights. This "news" can be printed on the front page of American newspapers and not an eyebrow will raise. The new American mantra is that rights to privacy and anonymity have to be balanced against the community's need for greater homeland security, and gee, while they're at it, they may as well go ahead and protect the environment and provide social equity too.

Our citizens have not been told that open borders, protected land and water, free trade, citizen advisory councils, domestic spying, reaching consensus, public-private partnerships, sustainable development, exporting democratic freedom, and enforcing the global common good is as un-American as buying British merchant's tea. The U.S. National Guard says it protects the "common good" right on TV. It's a tragedy that our people do not understand either the ideology or the roots for all the important words used to define American laws.
The term homeland was used in the 1930s to describe a position of the Austrian Minister Zernatto who negotiated terms with the Nazis. Today homeland is a Russian political party and is also used to describe all of Russia. In 2002, Republican speechwriter Peggy Noonan wrote, "The name Homeland Security grates on a lot of people, understandably. Homeland isn't really an American word, it's not something we used to say or say now." ( answers.com)

We have a whole war named for Terrorism, and yet we have never been taught the word "terrorist" comes from the Jacobin freemasons who established the usefulness of terror tactics to achieve sweeping political goals in 1789 France. We surely have never been told the term "civil society" originated with the Jacobin's revolutionary idealists. Would it come as any surprise to hear the term "ideology" also originated in 18th century France?

Our government has described its efforts in Iraq as rebuilding a communitarian system in the Middle East, yet this term never comes up in congressional debates, nor is it part of the anti-war speeches. It's not even part of the calls for Bush and Cheney's impeachment. How can so many people be opposed to the current administration's polices and wars, be so upset over congressional passage of the Patriot Act and the Amnesty idea, be so suspicious of the WTO, and yet not be the slightest bit interested in the actual ideology behind the wars and the laws, let alone the entire concept for global domination over every nation's marketplace?

How is it possible that educated Americans cannot see there is a recurring theme inherent in all new actions that alter national systems, regardless of whether the changes are violent invasions or are quietly adopted into regulatory law just under the local radar? Maybe they've heard it so many times from so many public officials' lips that they assume it's a good thing to rebuild a moral community based in shared values. It sounds so lovely, doesn't it? Anyone opposed would have to be immoral with selfish values, wouldn't they?
The communitarian language is peppered with quite lovely phrases that define a perfect utopian world where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, and everybody shares. This is the final synthesis of all political, economic, social, and religions theories, so it gets to use all their highest sounding goals and platitudes. The bottom line to achieving perfection (a topic which must never be broached) is that American liberty and property cannot long exist without a communitarian perspective (Etzioni). Americans may never be told why their new internationally decreed human rights also carries with it a new legal requirement to perform new duties that are part of a global citizen's responsibilities (Giacomazzi).

Communitarianism is duality magnified by a million times a trillion. It embraces every purpose and mouths the promises made by every prophet and alchemist since the dawn of man. It's designed to become the global justice system and the global religion, so it also must claim to want consensus from each nation and church. This all inclusive philosophy is how they explain they can protect individual rights at the same time they strip them all away. Some sacrifices must be made for the common good. It's the end that matters, it's the end that justifies the means. Violence was always part of their plan to create a peaceful world. Some diehard nations have to be violently subdued. Other nations led by more pragmatic, business classes can be convinced to adapt their morals to allow for organized nepotism and graft. We have arrived at the grand convergence of all humanity; it's the ultimate bi-partisan consensus. This is the perfectly planned transcendent triumph of alchemy over instinct.

Communitarian law is a large part of the "continuous development of norms." This is the designated supreme law in the European Union. This is the legal principles for the Earth Charter. This is the moral purpose for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. And it changes constantly, rarely in the open, so that few people can ever claim to understand it. "Secondly, there are entire new areas of international law which need to be thoroughly studied, followed on a daily basis, and almost constantly translated into the domestic legal system. A good example of this is the continuous development of norms protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms, rights of minorities, environmental law, communitarian law, etc. Such developments impose another important aspect on the work of a good legal adviser in a democratic, law-abiding country: that of contributing to the further development of international law. I shall quote my former British colleague Sir Arthur Watts who wrote very explicitly about it: "Since there is no legislature, it (international law) changes essentially through State practice - which means what Foreign Ministries do and what Foreign Ministry legal advisers advise their Ministries it is lawful for them to do. Since the law has to change in this way, it means that States can, and do, break new ground and so contribute to the creation of new law. A legal adviser, accordingly, may have to participate in this process; and he may certainly, in appropriate circumstances, advise that it will be lawful to do something which has never been done before, or which would involve the development in a new direction of an existing rule of international law. The circumstances of international life are pressing, and even though a situation may have novel elements it cannot be met with inaction; and novel situations may call for novel responses." " (Nick Stanko, Chief Legal Advisor, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Croatia)

In all cases regarding individual rights against the common good, the common good wins. In order to have an efficient global government, we need a higher global standard that rules supreme over all nations (Garcia). This higher law has to have the ultimate authority to enforce its decisions against anyone in the world, from the small citizen property or business owner all the way up to the President of the United States of America.
The EU constitution was supposed to be their legitimizing, crowning achievement. It was designed to pave the way to a completely global communitarian system. But it failed after Dutch and French voters rejected its supremacy clause. So for the EU's 50th birthday party, Big Mother took a novel approach by trying to rally skeptical French and Dutch voters with a new Treaty called the Berlin Declaration. By taking out the very word "constitution," EU leaders hope to sway European voters into accepting communitarian supremacy of law.
"The signing of the Berlin Declaration - a two-page document designed to rally skeptical voters behind the EU in plain and uplifting language - was the centerpiece of celebrations of the EU's 50th birthday, officially the anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome in 1957 which founded the European Economic Community, which became the EU. 'The declaration did not even mention the word 'constitution,' a token of how controversial the issue remains two years after French and Dutch voters blocked the charter in 2005 referendums."("EU seeks way out of constitutional crisis at birthday celebration" International Herald Tribune, 3/26/2007

What began as the "law of treaties" already crept into every national system via regional trade agreements designed by Big Mother's representatives. All modern trade groups are regulated by referring to established EU case law. The legitimacy of supreme international ideals, while existing mainly in the communitarian's skewed visionings, is slowly gaining in stature and respect, due mainly to advertising it as the only "moral" court of justice. The rest of us exist unaware in the era of "psychological jurisprudence." (Fox 1990)
Two sets of opposing laws claim to rule supreme in the U.S. Supreme means "greatest in status or authority or power." The Communitarian theory says international law is supreme. When officials of the United States of America cite the "Rule of Law" to justify their most unconstitutional acts, they aren't referring to the U.S. Bill of Rights; it's been balanced.

GARCÍA, Fernando at Bolitin Mexicano: "The aim of this essay is to discuss some of the legal problems (both at the constitutional and communitarian levels), faced by the European Union, as a conse-quence of the process of integration and its relation to domestic legal systems of the member States. In this way, the article analyzes the way in which the Court of Justice has controled the principle of the supremacy of communitarian law over domes-tic laws, as well as over the principle of uniformity in its application, on the basis of international intruments, common constitutional traditions and general principles of communitarian law. In addition, the author explains the role of national courts in the determination of constitutional limits to the pro-cess of integration, mainly in what concerns issues such as fundamental rights and the power to determine the jurisdiction limits of communitarian institutions. Lastly, the author stresses the need to establish a structure of the constitutional kind as a useful tool for the effi-cacy of the process of integration.

Brian Gerrish on Common Purpose (Communitarianism UK)

An excellent series of videos where he... "goes into more detail about the "charity" Common Purpose and links their objectives to organizations such as the Fabian Socialists, Royal Institute of International Affairs, European Union, Council On Foreign Relations and more. He states in other videos that he was, at one time, living his life not knowing the inner hidden workings of world controllers but soon found out after trying to start a wooden boat repair facility for local youths in Plymouth, that it was at the displeasure of some local authorities. Through his experience and research, he has found and documented evidence leading to these conclusions about this fifth colume organization called Common Purpose and how they are deliberately breaking down our society for the transition into a European feredal superstate, the 'post democratic era'."

Common Purpose the Unseen Invasion - Brian Gerrish

Post by zone on Fri Oct 28, 2011 10:41 am



Common Purpose the Unseen Invasion - Brian Gerrish

Brian Gerrish discovered the hidden machinations of Common Purpose in Plymouth England some time ago. CP influence is seen in force throughout the BBC, Local Councils, Police, Schools, National Health Service, and many government agencies that run towns in the UK. Leading toward ever closer union, it is a subversive way to set up new leaders of the coming Totalitarian Socialist State (The European Union). Bringing people in through 'Self Improvement' courses, the talented are picked and indoctrinated in CP ideology. Destined to break up traditional viewpoints it is a very effective and hidden tool of manipulators behind the scenes. Many CP trained 'leaders' are well aware of the true purpose of the organization, most are not but are serving the goal as a result of their retraining in the CP mode of thinking. Brainwashing, a cult, a subversive organization, are terms redily applied to the methods and organization of the group.

NGOs....Common Purpose

Post by zone on Fri Oct 28, 2011 11:07 am

Jewish Virtual Library

A Division of the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise

WORLD JEWISH ASSOCIATIONS


This article is confined to organizations that encompass Jews and Jewish activities cutting across the borders of various countries. Associations of this nature have existed for more than a century. Among the histories of dispersed communities of ethnic, religious, or any other character, nowhere can one find the same wealth of organizational experience in the political, social, and cultural spheres as among the Jews. Three interrelated features characterize these organizations: (1) all their activities are international, as Jews throughout the world constitute a single entity; (2) through its organizations Jewry relates itself to international bodies and their laws; (3) organization is the quality that all Jewish communities must have in common and is what unites them. A nation without president, government, or distinct framework of services, it nevertheless has representatives – "negotiorum gestores" in Herzl's terminology – and leaders of sectional organizations who engage in deliberations on lines of policy, "administrative" activities, and independent political action in both the foreign and social arenas. The community, scattered as it is, has its common needs and services, its financial structure, and its patterns of loyalty.
Nevertheless, all of its services are decentralized, and since they must be geared to practical demands they are in constant flux. They include organs of protection and are based on principles of protection. In these efforts, Jewry has to rely on international law and its institutions, and it can only do so through organization. However, there can be no comprehensive organization – whether for protection, welfare, education, fund-raising, or emigration – unless there is a non-governmental organization (NGO) arrangement for it.
Since World War II, the special status of NGOs has been consolidated, mainly in the form of "consultation" with the main intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), primarily the United Nations. As a social phenomenon, however, the NGO is far older, as are its functions and achievements in the history of Jewry. Jews, on their part, played an important role in developing the awareness, within the organized international community, of the need to recognize the status of NGOs and their public services. Jewish world organizations became a pioneering force in the field of international group activity and group protection. The history of this policy, often pursued under the greatest sacrifices and against the heaviest odds, is a vital part of Jewish history. Organization proved to be the main precondition for self-assertion and protection. The whole organizational preparation of Israel's statehood developed within strict NGO patterns, and the same holds true for minority protection in the interwar period and the negotiation of restitution after the Holocaust.....
.....The proliferation of organizations added impetus to a phenomenon long observed in Jewish organization: their coalition or federalist nature. Thus, the Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency have been governed for decades by carefully balanced coalitions, under conditions of continually renewed attempts at broadening partnership. They became the operational vehicle for world Jewry's participation in Israel's activities and development as the National Home of Jewry. (According to the Jerusalem Program of 1968, the main aim of Zionism is the unity of the Jewish people and the centrality of Israel in Jewish life.) In this sense it should be compared to earlier organizations. The Comité des Délélegations Juives was formed in response to external circumstances. Its membership was heterogeneous in many respects, but they united in what they viewed as a common purpose. Later, the World Jewish Congress was established as a federation of "national" Jewish associations. If these were "roof organizations" with functions of coordination, some less formal solutions were adopted wherein coordination required no permanent executive apparatus, such as the *World Conference of Jewish Organizations (COJO, founded 1958) and the U.S. Conference of Major Jewish Organizations (generally known as the Presidents' Conference). The main Jewish organizations are represented in all, or most, of these coordinating bodies: the JDC, the Jewish Agency, B'nai B'rith, and the World Jewish Congress. On the other hand, in some of them the absence of the American Jewish Committee is conspicuous. In many of them there is little contact between the organization and the Jewish population at large, and the situation is still similar to what it was at the time of Baron de Hirsch and his welfare secretariats. Jewry is still to a large degree governed by self-perpetuating oligarchic establishments, and the process of full democratization, as envisaged by Herzl, remains a vision of the future.....

Success for Israeli NGO’s in the U.S.

September 20, 2010 by EHL Consulting
Filed under Philanthropy in Israel, The Blog
Leave a Comment


Partnership and Trust = Success for Israeli NGO’s in the U.S.
by Avrum D. Lapin

Countless non-profits based in Israel seek funds in the US. Many have successfully entered into and navigated the increasingly complex and competitive US philanthropic marketplace.


  • Why do some succeed and others not?
  • What are some of the elements of a successful fundraising program, making it possible for Israel based NGO’s, small and large, to reach their goals and meet the expectations of leaders and donors in the US and in Israel.

Our experience tells us that it often boils down to a philosophical and “hands on” commitment to partnership between the teams in Israel and in the US.

The essential ingredient in the recipe for fundraising success for Israel based non-profits in the US today, partnership begins with the development of trust between US and Israeli teams and the an understanding of value and expertise that each brings to the process. Without trust, in an environment of transparency and open communication, opportunities are missed and expectations go unfulfilled.

Israeli leaders – professionals and Board members – must be full and active participants in the fund development process, beginning with designating or assigning staff, whether the chief executive or another senior professional, and to serve as partners in planning, leading and executing the program. Expectation of success from independent and disconnected activity in the US alone will be illusory.

A key element of the partnership and trust between American and Israeli colleagues is the sharing of critical data in BOTH directions, giving histories and current donor relationships as a platform for generating new prospects and future success. “Parallel tracks” are dysfunctional and wasteful of time and resources. And as US professionals are retained on a fee for service (we emphatically discourage any Israeli NGO from retaining US professionals on commissions due to questions of ethics and professionalism), there is an ongoing investment and shared interest in creating one integrated effort built upon common purpose and coordinated activity.

Partnership is also increasingly being measured today by the level of fundraising activity in Israel. Leaders and donors in the US frequently, and legitimately, raise questions about the extent of efforts and amount of money raised in Israel.

Americans are aware and proud of Israel’s economic advancement and growth. They are eager to see those successes translate into true partnership in resource development. And there have been strides forward in Israel in this area.

Professor Hillel Schmid and Avishag Rudich note in a recent article called “The Emerging Israeli Philanthropist,” that in 2007 almost 70% of Israeli adults over the age of 20 donated to non-profits. They further contend that Israelis are becoming more accustomed to giving; that economic growth and the privatization of the Israeli economy have grown the pool of donors and influenced the Israeli public’s philanthropic style – a growing generosity with an interest in measurable organizational outcomes. Schmid and Rudich continue, stating that this has particularly engaged the business community, which provides volunteers, knowledge and funding – now comprising 5% of total philanthropy in Israel’s philanthropic pie.

We have observed this progress and initiative with the Israel based non-profits that we work with, seeing greater collaboration and philanthropic support in Israel from individuals and businesses, and a growing commitment on the part of Israeli leaders to fundraising being a growing component of a non-profit’s revenue. This expanding activity builds partnership around the fundraising agenda and has generated results, though not yet at US levels. We applaud all of the Israeli non-profits that have shown vision, initiative and results, and we encourage them to continue.

In summary, Israel based non-profits need to recognize and to be guided by the spirit of partnership as key to fundraising success in the US:


  • Strong and “integrated” volunteer AND professional fundraising leadership teams in the US and in Israel are a priority for the present and future. Only through dedicated and collaborative leadership will shared goals be determined and achieved, especially in the slowly improving US economy now governed by the “new normal.”
  • In this age of high expectations, the open sharing of information is essential. “Parallel tracks” are a recipe for waste and inefficiency and do not benefit organizations or the people whom they serve.
  • Professional and volunteer leaders in Israel and the US are encouraged to see the respective activities in the US and in Israel as one and to use the knowledge and expertise of the integrated teams to break down “conventional” lines and generate innovative thinking that will yield better results.
  • Israeli non-profits must continue to develop and grow sources and opportunities for fundraising in Israel and see that activity as part of a comprehensive effort on behalf of the organization.

We believe that those Israel based organizations that are committed to these elements will see fundraising in the US advance. For those who remain stuck to the rules and conventions of the past, progress in today’s environment will present a much bigger challenge.

What is a Soviet?

What is a Soviet?

By Michael Shaw
Tuesday, 28 June 2005 16:00


People know that a soviet system of government is a dismal failure. A failure so bad, in fact, that it's inconceivable to consider that soviet-style "change agents" might actually be Americans living and working in our own neighborhoods. Even worse, would be to discover that your smiling political leaders might also be "agents of change."

~


Dense government housing is being built along the coastal rail line. Rules and regulation covering all manner of human activity are sprouting like forest mushrooms after rains. "Consensus" rules the day; Robert's Rules of Order have been abandoned (or substituted with phony versions intended to fool people). Consistently each council is comprised of people (often the same ones) who are in agreement with a pre-arranged outcome.

~


The guidebook behind the Santa Cruz soviet system of "regional" councils is the Santa Cruz local United Nations Agenda 21 (Sustainable Development).

~

Agenda 21 is sweeping America under the nomenclature "Sustainable Development" using the environment as an ostensible front for the real purpose behind Sustainable Development Agenda 21 – implementing a partnership between business and government in order to seize America's natural resources and to exercise increasing control over the American people.

...........................................................

The Definition of a Soviet:


* A soviet is a system of councils that report to an apex council and implement a predetermined outcome, often by consensus, affecting a region or neighborhood.

* Members of a soviet council are chosen by virtue of their willingness to comply with that outcome and their one-mindedness with the group.

* Soviets are the operating mechanism of a government-controlled economy, whether it be socialism or government-corporate ("public-private") partnerships.


Change agents are working with opportunists and other foolish people by coordinating government, business, NGO, and "non-profit" partners to implement a soviet system in your county, too.

And the 'common purpose' (even if some individuals are not aware) is the kingdom of God on earth.

PPS and all

Post by zone on Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:57 pm

PPS, i know things are heating up at Helio/Geo but this is a MUST LISTEN.

i don't know the date of the interview and forget about jeff rense.

niki raapana is the Anti-Communitarian pioneer. this interview (commercials are edited out) sent chills down my spine. ya, we know what's going on globally but she makes it exceedingly clear that this stuff is FULLY in place on the municipal level already.

i wondered why the US DHS ordered 400 million+ hollow point rounds for domestic purposes and freely announced it: well, according to niki they're ready to roll.

upshot: as they said they would do, they bypassed the Constitution by going from the UN straight to the local level. they've dispensed with the majoral/council system and installed all-powerful City Administrators. this person has total authority over EVERYONE and is actually MAKING LAW with POLICE.

this is merely the bolshevik system ON STEROIDS.

i'm not doing justice to the interview.

everybody should take time to listen while the audio is still available:

There is an old social theory that in order to create a healthier planet, people everywhere must learn the value of collectivism. Its many proponents insist that individual rights and liberties pose a real threat to the health and safety of the âcommunity at large. If we will just put the community before self-centered concerns, mankind can eliminate war and poverty. To many, it is our evolutionary destiny and our moral duty to comply with the spirit of community.....

The EU Communitarian Agenda
And The New Feudalists


By Philip Jones
10-26-8







Communitarianism is a collectivist philosophy that explicitly rejects individualism. It does not merely relegate individualism to a subordinate position, but is openly hostile to it. It is an ideology of 'civic society' which is nothing less than one version of Post-Marxist collectivism which wants privileges for certain wealthy and influential organized groups, and in consequence, a renewed feudalization of society.
--Vaclav Klaus.

Communitarianist Ideology

The European Union is a major aspect of the `New World Order` and the so called `sustainable development` movement. The main objective of the Federal European State to be, is absolute social, personal and economic control in a collectivist and corporatist society. The philosophy behind the EU is a strange mixture of Capitalism and Communism - a form of Euro Marxism which owes much of its dogma to the Pre World War II Italian Marxist Philosopher, Antonio Gramsci.. The nearest ideology to that practiced by the EU is something called `Communitarianism`, or what Tony Blair called the 'Third Way'..

Communitarians are also pioneering the study of repentance–official apologies, public rites of reconciliation, truth-finding commissions, and other vehicles whereby mutually aggrieved groups can put the wounds of the past behind them and achieve fresh social harmony.

from 2010




The European Parliament is giving EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton a hard time, as political group leaders yesterday (10 June) delivered a clear message that they disliked her proposals for the European Union's new diplomatic service. They insisted that it must be attached to the European Commission, otherwise the Parliament will veto its financing.


The EU assembly showed its strength by adopting a strong-worded statement following the Conference of Presidents of its political groups, making clear that no agreement on the nature of the European External Action Service (EEAS) had been reached.

Intergovernmental vs communitarian

"The Parliament believes that the Service should be more communitarian than inter-governmental in character, and this is why the Parliament insists that it is attached to the Commission. […] The Parliament will continue to strongly defend this position," the statement reads.

According to the political group leaders, "in these times of increasing intergovernmentalism it is of the utmost importance to ensure that Community policies are not intergovernamentalised. Ensuring the Communitarian nature of the EEAS is essential".

DHS won't explain its order of 450 million hollow point bullets

Published: 04 April, 2012, 01:48

After 9/11, the United States government created the Department of Homeland Security to prevent future acts of terrorism and deal with other domestic issues. Now in order to keep doing such, the agency is asking for 450 million hollow point bullets.

The DHS has signed off on an “indefinite delivery” from defense contractors ATK that will include, for some reason, nearly 500 million high-power ammunition for .40 caliber firearms. The department has yet to discuss why they are ordering such a massive bevy of bullets for an agency that has limited need domestically for doing harm, but they say they expect to continue receiving shipments from the manufacturer for the next five years, during which they plan to blow through enough ammunition to execute more people than there are in the entire United States.

I just don't get it, though. How can anyone be deceived by all this?

During my recent family medical crisis, I had a chance to talk with my sister for many hours over several weeks. She didn't know one bit of any of this, but somehow in her heart she simply knew everything I was saying was the truth. She had the same generalized conceptions, including Jews not being a race.

Being a New Yorker, she watched all the 9-11 videos and was livid at being deceived. She knows several families attached to the 9-11 incident. Some were nearby. Some lost close family. Some had miracle stories about having appointments or being late and not being at work in the towers that day.

She hasn't even hardly been in church for 30 years, but she half knew stuff already and received the detail when I told her. She got the Godhead part, too. She was PISSED when I told her about Geocentricity.

How in the world are people so snowballed by this comic book script?
