Illegal Immigration: Well functioning borders work like computer firewalls. They let in the good, and keep the bad.
Crossing the border illegally has been going on for many years. But the crossings have become an increasing problem, because our fire wall has been destroyed. The government creates problems, and then convinces us we need them to solve the problems they created in the first place. Allow me to explain:
My Grandparents had a cattle ranch in the rural mountains of Arizona. My Uncle would cross the border, and work for them 3 months every year during calving season. He would return home, and live on that income for the rest of the year . This was a common practice in rural areas, because finding someone able to move to a remote area for only 3 months work was not so easy.
In 1933, Vice-President John Garner, when referring to the international bankers, said: “You see, gentlemen, who owns the United States .”
Senator Barry Goldwater
Sen. Barry Goldwater wrote in his book With No Apologies: “Does it not seem strange to you that these men just happened to be CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and just happened to be on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, that absolutely controls the money and interest rates of this great country. A privately owned organization … which has absolutely nothing to do with the United States of America !”
What we call an illegal immigration problem, the Council On Foreign Relations calls “homogenization” . http://www.cfr.org/world/conversation-zbigniew-brzezinski/p27829
So the real problem is caused by those who want a North American Union, and a global Governance. Globalization will occur naturally through technology. But what governments want to do with it i s very different than what freedom loving people want. That is even true when it comes to war.
However, we can’t afford to fence the whole U.S. border, and it would not solve the crux of the problem in the first place. Spending such money would put us further in debt to the Federal Reserve, and those Countries who hold the U.S. bonds connected to that debt (China being one of them).
Governments historically create problems, and then convince the people we need them to solve the problems they created in the first place.
The first two pictures below are of the Cobra Ranch once owned by my family in the Aravaipa Canyon of Arizona. Family ranchers typically owned large sections of land, because the cattle grazed freely for most of their food (grass mostly). In order to stay in business, these ranches had to be good stewards of the land, because, if not, they lost their cattle feed, and went out of business. As you can see in the first two pictures, there were many large trees. That is Poppy and your great-grandfather standing in front of one of them, and our truck is barely visible behind the tree. The land also had lots of deer and other wildlife.
The cattle also thinned out the underbrush, and that is why you did not see as many wild fires that destroy those beautiful large trees as is happening now. But it is interesting that the news media is currently blaming the out of control wildfires that destroy those beautiful trees on “Climate Change” rather than the BLM removing the cattle without replacing them with other grazing animals like buffalo.
You see, in the 1800s Americans had killed off most of the buffalo, and we experienced rampant wildfires. So cattle were introduced to do what the buffalo had always done…thin the underbrush, and provide protein rich food. The government would encourage ranchers to put their cattle on government land to prevent forest fires. It was a win win situation for the rancher and the American people.
In order to keep the land healthy we fenced off one area from another, and rotated the cattle from one section to the other. In the winter, we fed them bails of alfalfa which we raised and bailed ourselves. However factory farms (see third picture) are now replacing the grass fed cattle we use to eat.
P.S. The BLM now owns the Cobra Ranch.
Environmental and Health Problems in modern Livestock Production:
Pollution in the Food System……………………
In the last few decades, consolidation of food production has concentrated power in the hands of fewer and fewer corporations. Many of today’s farms are actually large industrial facilities (see third picture), not 40 acres of pastures, red barns, and rows of mixed vegetable crops that most Americans imagine. These consolidated operations are able to produce food in high volume but have little to no regard for the environment, animal welfare, soil and water quality, or food safety. In order to maximize profits, industrial agriculture often trades the health of consumers and rural communities, as well as the nutritional quality of the product, for an economy of scale through consolidation and mechanization.
When Nixon closed the gold window and refused to pay out any of our remaining 280 million ounces of gold. In essence, we declared our insolvency and everyone recognized some other monetary system had to be devised in order to bring stability to the markets.
Amazingly, a new system was devised which allowed the U.S. to operate the printing presses for the world reserve currency with no restraints placed on it — not even a pretense of gold convertibility, none whatsoever! Though the new policy was even more deeply flawed, it nevertheless opened the door for dollar hegemony to spread.
Realizing the world was embarking on something new and mind-boggling, elite money managers, with especially strong support from U.S. authorities, struck an agreement with OPEC to price oil in U.S. dollars exclusively for all worldwide transactions. This gave the dollar a special place among world currencies and in essence “backed” the dollar with oil. In return, the U.S. promised to protect the various oil-rich kingdoms in the Persian Gulf against threat of invasion or domestic coup. This arrangement helped ignite the radical Islamic movement among those who resented our influence in the region.”
In November 2000 Saddam Hussein demanded Euros for his oil. His arrogance was a threat to the dollar; his lack of any military might was never a threat. At the first cabinet meeting with the new administration in 2001, as reported by Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, the major topic was how we would get rid of Saddam Hussein — though there was no evidence whatsoever he posed a threat to us. This deep concern for Saddam Hussein surprised and shocked O’Neill.
It now is common knowledge that the immediate reaction of the administration after 9/11 revolved around how they could connect Saddam Hussein to the attacks, to justify an invasion and overthrow of his government. Even with no evidence of any connection to 9/11, or evidence of weapons of mass destruction, public and congressional support was generated through distortions and flat out misrepresentation of the facts to justify overthrowing Saddam Hussein.
There was no public talk of removing Saddam Hussein because of his attack on the integrity of the dollar as a reserve currency by selling oil in Euros. Many believe this was the real reason for our obsession with Iraq. I doubt it was the only reason, but it may well have played a significant role in our motivation to wage war. Within a very short period after the military victory, all Iraqi oil sales were carried out in dollars. The Euro was abandoned.

My dentist use to tell me that I had gingivitis, because of the gap between my teeth, and how my gums have receded. I heard that the Sonicare toothbrushes would help, and the Phillips brand was the most highly rated. So I purchased one. It lasted me for several years. But, more importantly, my gums are returning to normal placement on my teeth, and I am no longer told I have gingivitis. So I am purchasing another Philips Sonicare HX6711/02 HealthyWhite 710 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, and am recommending it to my friends.
Perhaps like you, my husband and I were fed up with the high cost of satellite and cable that filled our TV with advertisements and programs we did not want. We complained, but their solutions were more packages filled with even less of what we wanted. A friend alerted us to some fantastic solutions which I will share with you here.
We purchased the Roku 2 XD from Best Buy, but later discovered it was available from Amazon for less. Roku 2 XD Streaming Player 1080p. The directions were very easy, and we were able to install it without paying for a professional installation.
Note: What you will need with the Roku 2 XD is a high-speed internet (like DSL or cable), a wireless router, HDMI cable (for high-definition video. If you prefer to use a wired Ethernet connection, choose the Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player instead.
With this device you have several options such as Amazon movies, Netflix , Hulu (see comparisons & costs), Disney (which is free) and much more. We took all the free stuff, and added Netflix for $6.67 per month… far less for so many more choices than $86.39 per month we were paying with satellite. We are excited…How about you?
We are excited about this choice as well. This Antenna has a 65 mile+ range. We are able to pick up 28 channels on our TV for FREE. That could result in more or less channels for you depending on your location.
Installation was easy, so we did not need professional assistance. If you also choose this option, be sure to visit Antenna Points website so that you get the best reception possible.
In Conclusion, we are highly excited about the Roku 2 XD and the Ultra Long Range HDTV antenna. With the Roku, there are no advertisements unless we request them. It is like walking into a video store with a large variety of choices, but within the convenience of your own home. The streaming player keeps track of what we have watched, so we can return to it, or watch the next series. The antenna has the advertisement interruptions, but it is free. We highly recommend them both.
Robert P. Hillmann is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago, with a bachelor’s degree in history. He did extensive research concerning the “New world Order”, and what is happening to the world economy. For anyone wanting to know, and to prepare his book is a must read. This article is a review of Hillmann’s book titled”Reinventing Government: Fast Bullets And Cultural Changes.
Following are a few very interesting, well documented, and informative excerpts from his book. They are not necessarily in the order as presented in the book. However the wording is the same.
The book is based upon the personal papers of University professor of international law, Quincy Write. The Quincy Write Papers are held the Department of Special Collections at the University of Chicago Regenstein Library. There in excess of 140 boxes of these records containing thousands of original documents—many on U.S. Governmental letterhead—concerning the creation of what Wright referred to as the “new world order”.
The letters and documents in Wright’s papers paint a picture of 20th Century historical events and people that many scholars have been reluctant to address. My goal in writing this paper was to outline the period and bring to light some of the events and people that for one reason or another have been overlooked. (writes Robert Hillmann)
Defining The Term
In early March 1993 President Clinton created what is now called the National Partnership for Reinventing Government (NPR) and named Vice President Al Gore to serve his point man in a drive to reinvent government in the United States (1)
There are three main differences between the system that Follett described and Socialism as Marx, Lenin, Stalin and other 19th and 20th century Communist leaders viewed it. The first was the creation of the “socialized will”. This could only be achieved over a long period of time using incremental adjustments. Communist leaders on the other hand believed that it could be accomplished quickly from the top down, first by violent revolution and then the elimination of anyone left that disagreed with them.
The second difference between the two was that while most Socialists and Communist leaders believed in a classless society, Follett advocated an aristocracy to rule over what she referred to as the “mob.”
The third difference between Follett and Socialist leaders like Lenin and Stalin is not as apparent as the other two. It involves the route that the Russian Revolution took after its initial success. Vladimir I. Lenin began forming a Socialist nation-state from which revolution could be exported to capitalist countries around the globe. Joseph Stalin continued to expand on this program causing a rift between those that believed in world government as the primary goal of their efforts and those who saw Socialism as their primary goal. (70)
Historical Origins And Those In Charge
It is a Forbes magazine article that provides the most valuable insight into its origins. In it Mary Parker Follett, an early 20th century educator and business management consultant from Boston, is identified as being the “mother” of reinventing government theory (29)
As World War I was coming to a close, Communistsand radicals of every stripe were laying the groundwork for a Socialist worldgovernment that they hoped would emerge from the ruins of the old world order. As it turns out, large banking interests and others of great wealth, in Britain and the United States, were thinking along similar lines—of course their brand of Socialism would have two classes not one. In 1918, with the help of Albert Bushnell Hart, Follett wrote a book called The New State: Group Organization the Solution of Popular Government. Folett outlined the social political and educational requirements necessary to build a world government and it was the banking interests to which her book was addressed. (31)
By the late 1890’s American educators such as John Dewey, J.E. Russell—both of Columbia University—and Woodrow Wilson of Princeton University joined with wealthy businessmen such as Andrew Carnegie, J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller (both engineers of the Federal Reserve) in pushing this globally oriented agenda.
The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Royal Institute of International Affairs were only the first of many such organizations to come—all of which had as their most basic goal the education of people in the necessity of world governance. (CFR & Jeb Bush)
Roosevelt, an ardent supporter of the League of Nations, was a committed internationalist. His political appointments reflected this internationalism and a close relationship between government officials and groups like the Council on Foreign Relations.(135)
He (Eichelberger) said that Roosevelt felt that the only way for the world government to be successful would be for it to be dictatorial in nature. By this he meant that the U.N. using the strength of its four main members , the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union and China, was going to have to force its will upon the remaining nations of the world. (213)
One of the main obstacles to U.S. participation in the League Of Nation (precursor to the U.N.) was the U.S. Senate’s (Thus the 16th Amendment) objection to American involvement in a world political organization that would clearly limits its rights as a sovereign nation. Having learned from their previous mistake, it was decided that this time economic integration (The Federal Reserve) & (one world Currency) would precede political integration.(196)
The WTO, which negotiates and implements trade agreements operates out of Geneva, Switzerland. The WTO consists of a ministerial conference, a general council and a director-general–none of whom is elected by or are in any way answerable to the people. This is a classic example of “democracy” as defined by Mary Parker Follett. (page 68)
Once again, following the Shotwell model, economic union would proceed political union. This began with the Canadian-U.S. Free Trade Agreement in 1988 which was quickly, expanded by George Bush, into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).…In October of 1997, Bill Clinton made clear the goal of these free trade agreements when he declared that a great tide of change was sweeping the globe and that”...isolationist voices must be ignored as efforts proceed to fully integrate the political and economic future of the Americas.“(314)
In the article Dziedizic noted that NAFTA”…is nevertheless replete with implications for regional security cooperation. (317). He then went on to describe a regional military force whose main opponent would be civilian rather than military. Its primary mission, according to Dziedzic, would involve illegal immigration, contraband weapons and illegal drugs.(318)
The Transformation Of Education
Before such a plan could be implemented, however, common people would need to be specially educated to accept both an international government and their new station in life. One of the ways advocated to accomplish this task was to edit history books to reflect more global perspective. This idea was first put forward at the first Universal Peace Conference in 1889 (36)
Melching and company say that one of the major obstacles in the way of public-sector re-engineering is “America’s constitutionally embedded reluctance to authorize governmental innovations (the checks and balances which constrain government).”(9)
Osborne ad Gaeble make a similar comment in “Reinventing Government” when they state. “Just a Columbus never knew he had come upon a new continent, many of today’s pioneers—from governors to city managers, teachers to social workers—do not understand the global significance of what they are doing:(15) The last step in the process is to quickly implement your plan. This approach is described as “slow trigger, fast bullet”(16)
Under the old system children were taught, in their history classes, about how people came to America in search of religious freedom and how they fought a revolutionary war to escape tyranny. They were also taught about the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. This was to come to and end. In order for a two-class society to properly function the lower class would have to forgo more than just a liberal education—they would also have to give up their individual rights. In order to achieve this, the history of the Republic could no longer be taught the way it he had been in the past. Walter Karp, contributing editor of the Harper’s magazine, commenting on industrial education stated that, “With economic “interdependence” as its subject and a “socialized” worker as its goal the new “democratic” curriculum had little place for history. For political history, which recounts the diverse deeds of men, there was to be no place at all. ” (39)
She (Follett) felt that government based on individual rights had no place in modern political theory and disliked the system of checks and balances because it prevented power from being concentrated in the hands a small group of people. (51)
The training for the new democracy mus be from the cradle through nursery, school and play, and on and on through every activity of our life. (69)
People however, were not going to be told that the solution to the problems of world peace was the creation of a world government until they had been properly prepared. (173)
“My point (says Wright) was that excessive loyalties to certain sacred cows such as sovereignty, nationality, neutrality, and domestic jurisdiction is ruining civilization.”(194)
The early 1920’s were a growth period for the textbook revision program. “The ICIC planned a positive program for the future. It made recommendations to local school boards to governments for official campaigns to revise textbooks, and requests for support were sent to major international governmental agencies”(103). ….”It is strictly forbidden to make or except applications for emendations referring to personal views of a moral, political, or religious order.“(105)
Tony Blair, while speaking in Chicago on 22 April 1999 mentioned that national constitutions were also to be targets of the reinventing process. (345). Nowhere is that more true than here in the United States. The U.S. Constitution with its system of checks and balances and the concept of individual rights, enshrined in its Bill of Rights, makes it an impossible document for the supporters of global government to deal with.
Reinventing the basic law of the land is no longer the sole preserve of the federal judiciary. Today government officials (and law enforcement) routinely Oregon the limitations placed on their authority of the Constitution. (page 79)& (351)
Group Identity Instead Of Individual Identity
In seventeenth and eighteenth century theory of democracy it was the individual that was considered to be the base unit of society and therefore it was individual rights that were paramount in documents like the U.S. Constitution…..Follett went on to state that “But there is no such thing as the ‘individual’ …(54) and since there was no such thing as the individual, it would naturally follow there should be no such thing as individual rights.(55)
The concept of individual rights had many flaws according to Follett’s political philosophy, not least of which was the fact that they believed that people were too stupid to make informed decisions. …The New State she proclaimed that, “Ballot-box democracy is what this book is written to oppose.” (57)
The solution to this problem, according to Follett, was to eliminate the individual as the basic unit of society and replace him with a group organizations (57) Group rights would now take the place of individual rights. Under the old order, man was endowed with certain God given rights—under the new system the only rights that man had were those that the group would bestow upon him. (59)
It makes it possible for a very small number of people to control a very large number of groups.
In Follett’s vision of democracy there would be two classes of people…”those who govern and those that are governed.” (62)
Military Transformation And Disarmament
Political and military control of the world during the transition period was to be in the hands of the four great powers that the Commission thought world make the largest contributions to the war effort—Britain, China, Russia, and the United States. (199) It was also planned that during the transition period membership in the world organization was to be expanded to include neutral countries and the defeated Axis powers. Prior to being allowed into the new world order, however, the Axis powers would have to undergo a period of extended military occupation during which the people in these countries were to be psychologically prepared for participation in it. (200)…In the permanent order to be established, abstention or withdrawal will be impossible. (201) The reports also made it clear who was going to pay the lion’s share of this global reconstruction project–the American people(202)
The World State that this new organization was advocating was to consist of an executive body, a legislature, a judicial branch (with jurisdiction over the individual), and a World army …so recruited and so based that no individual, group, or nation could seize control of it, (249) It was also noted that, “Upon the achievement of world government. all national armaments save limited quantities for international policing should be abolished, and the manufacturer of armaments, save those required by a world army and for internal policing, should be banned.”(250)
National armed services are being re-engineered in order to be able to properly interact with global and regional military forces while at the same time working with state and local governments. Like the regional and world forces, they too are preparing for major operations against civilian populations. This new type of mission is referred to as Operations Other Than War (OOTW) (336)… By December 1994, however, this had changed (not operating in the U.S.) . The West 95 “Operations Other Than War” conference openly discussed how these forces could be used in the U.S.(337)…by 1998 mufti-national forces were training for warfare in major urban centers, such as Chicago. under the code name “Urban Worrier”.(340)
Some of the most radical government re-engineering is occurring at the local level. Over the past ten years, numerous summits and conferences, sponsored by various United Nations agencies, have been held to outline plans for local government in the twenty-first century/ These plans cover such things as housing, healthcare, population control, land use, transportation, and almost any other aspect of life that can be imagined (357)
The main goal of these local re engineering projects is to institute what is called “Sustainable Development“. The origins of this idea can be traced to the Earth Summit held in Rio D Janeiro in 1992. Agenda 21, the United Nations Center for Human Settlements (Habitat), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Sustainable Cities Programme further developed this concept (362)
large corporate interests are the driving force behind it (Sustainable Development). Both require the creation of a new regional governing body that will control all development involving residential building plans, commercial development and transportation planning which includes limiting the use of the personal automobile and expanding mass transit. The also have two other things in common: the first is that the new regional governing bodies will have control over taxation and how the money is spent, and the second is that they will not be accountable to thetaxpayers.(364)
How much taxation will it reuire to force the bulk of the drivers off the road and on to mass transit? The london Planning Advisory Committee (LPAC, a local Agenda 21 troup in the U.K. has come up with an estimate. According to the LPAC, it will require the equivalent of about $12,000 (U.S.) per car in additional taxation each year to significantly reduce traffic (386)
“Once crises open the door, radical and rapid change can proceed.”(18)
2. A national identity card would be necessary and it must be an integrated access card or as it is more commonly referred to as a “smart card”.
Closing (Page 89)
Others have been reluctant to address both the persons and events revealed here. However, illuminating these obscured facts can elevate understanding of the ideas essential to individual freedom and free enterprise. Those ideas of liberty are the opposite of the ideas of serfdom revealed in this monograph and fostered by the advocates of Socialist world government.
Ideas essential too individual freedom and flourishing lives include:
The individual is the fountainhead of rights
The individual is the basic unit of government
Individual judgment and individual ownership of property are the basis of liberty’
The American Revolution was a uniquely moral revolution
Voters need representatives who are elected and accountable to them
Attributes of individual sovereignty may not be limited
Political freedom must rest upon economic freedom
Individuals, not groups, participate in republics, not democracies
Americans are not obligated to finance any global reconstruction porject
Withdrawal from insufferable social contracts is a basic human right.
Understanding the look and feel of fast bullets and culture changes can equip us to dodge the first and resist the second as the central planners spin out their reinvention of government. Having read first their books and now their papers, we can see clearly that we are simply dealing with some new-time thugs who desire old-fashioned rule over all. If this is a battle that every generation must wage and win, so be it. Floy Lilley, J.D., The University of Texas at Austin

Former Assistant Secretary of Housing under George H.W. Bush Catherine Austin Fitts blows the whistle on how the financial terrorists have deliberately imploded the US economy and transferred gargantuan amounts of wealth offshore as a means of sacrificing the American middle class.
** This video is sped up by 20% to make watching more efficient, and it is uploaded uncut from the original interview. **
Fitts documents how trillions of dollars went missing from government coffers in the 90’s and how she was personally targeted for exposing the fraud.
Fitts explains how every dollar of debt issued to service every war, building project, and government program since the American Revolution up to around 2 years ago — around $12 trillion — has been doubled again in just the last 18 months alone with the bank bailouts. “We’re literally witnessing the leveraged buyout of a country and that’s why I call it a financial coup d’état, and that’s what the bailout is for,” states Fitts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nU7wGe2A6k&feature=share
Testing is not the major measure of learning. Timo Heikkinen, a Helsinki principal with 24 years of teaching experience. “If you only measure the statistics, you miss the human aspect.” “We prepare children to learn how to learn, not how to take a test,” said Pasi Sahlberg,
Play is a big part of teaching (Whole Brain Teaching). “Play is important at this age,” Rintola would later say. “We value play.” Children spend far more time playing outside, even in the depths of winter. Homework is minimal.
“Finland spends about 30 percent less per student than the United States”, and provides more individualized attention.
As a workshop leader for the education department at University of North Florida, and a workshop leader for home school parents, I have noticed many things. One of the hardest things to do is to let go of the public school model which is failing our kids, and to adopt more successful methods they have never experienced.
The Conventional Method
The Conventional method typically used in Public Schools, and their mandated curriculum, is left brain teaching (workbooks, flash cards, lectures, sit down at a desk work). It it is effective with about 45% of the children. The other 55% are like round pegs forced into square wholes. This is particularly true with active children, hands on learners, children with ADHD and those with learning disabilities.
Whole Brain Teaching
With Whole Brain Teaching one reaches all the learning styles so that about 90% o f the children are learning. With this method , children learn faster, retain more, stress is reduced (a major cause of learning disabilities), drop out rates decrease by 90%, brain health health is improved, and they love it. Whole brain teaching simply means involving as many senses in the learning process as possible (games, play, and real life experiences). It can be easily done in the classroom. However home schooling lends itself to this method very easily, because when you home school, the whole world is your classroom.

Finland now has the best education in the world, and Play is a major part of their education. “A class of first graders scampered among nearby pine and birch trees, each holding a stack of the teacher’s homemade laminated “outdoor math” cards. “Find a stick as big as your foot,” one read. “Gather 50 rocks and acorns and lay them out in groups of ten,” read another. Working in teams, the 7- and 8-year-olds raced to see how quickly they could carry out their tasks. “
1. Ring Around The Phonics is an excellent board game for parents, teachers and tutors to teach language arts (phonics, reading, comprehension, listening skills, communication skills, spelling, vocabulary, foreign languages and more) . It involves the left and right brain (whole brain) in the learning process.
