Don't get me wrong. There are a few in Congress with guts to stand up. But there are so few of them that nothing will be done to fix the situation. Those few are stuck in no-man's land. One of them, Jim DeMint of South Carolina, just decided the situation was so bad, he would go where he might make more of difference. I wish him well and hope for his success in all ways.
First of all, I believe we have gradually been operating in Constitutional crisis mode for many decades to varying degrees, until now we are historic Rome, the Weimar Republic, the Soviet Union, and Greece all combined into the most poisonous soup ever dreamed up by enemies of the United States. Just so you know that is my description of the situation we are in.
As the last few years have drawn on into this abyss, I have read quite a few articles on who is behind the curtain pulling the strings. It isn't one who, but a handful of who's ..and most of them are the global financiers and geo-political power brokers. All of them are despicable users with huge egos. I'm not a financial genius at the level of Hayek, of course. But it doesn't take a financial genius to see the United States is being manipulated by money into ethical and Constitutional corruption beyond anything we have ever seen.
I just read a short article today that prompted this post. It is HERE I am reprinting the entirety for you below:
Anatomy of an End runFor all intents and purposes, cap and trade is dead in the U.S., but the global elite’s dream of a Technocracy-based economy is still alive and well.
Last month, Trilateral Commission pitchman Al Gore “again called for a ‘cap and trade’ system by warning Americans the country faces a ‘climate cliff’ in addition to a ‘fiscal cliff.’” According to Gore,
“I think all who look at these circumstances should agree that President Obama does have a mandate, should he choose to use it, to act boldly to solve the climate crisis, to begin solving it.”Far short of any voter-specified mandate, Gore pushes on: The circumstances that he (and he alone) cites provide their own mandate to elected officials.
The best economic scholarship available suggests that any kind of cap and trade situation would impose a significant drag on the economy. Gore pays no attention to such critique, claiming that a carbon tax would definitely solve both fiscal and his dreamed-up “climate cliff.”
Whatever frontal attack Gore (and other Trilaterals) have launched in recent years, they have not gotten very far. However, the have not and will not give up on their quest for the destruction of the brown economy and the creation of their utopian green economy — Technocracy.
So what happens when they don’t get their way? We need not look any further than the writing of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which has long been a policy center driven by a Trilateral agenda.
The CFR published The Global Climate Change Regime on July 5, 2012, which states in part,
“One way for Obama to force progress is to issue more executive orders and administrative rulemakings to partially substitute for Congressional opposition to his climate and energy agenda. Working through the EPA and the Clean Air Act, he could enact tougher rules that would cut carbon pollution from power plants and mitigate the potential effects of the failure to enact a national cap-and-trade program.”Their condescending attitude towards the citizenry of this country is indeed insulting. Are they the “enlightened ones” with some mystic mandate to save us from ourselves whether we like it or not? Apparently.
From a strategic point of view, however, you can see the value of the Trilateral Commission hijacking of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government with the election of Jimmy Carter in 1976. They knew that the American people would never go along with their screwball schemes, so they have forced them upon us by Executive fiat – executive orders, regulations and law-creating trade agreements.
Even though some members of Congress are fully aware of the Trilateral Commission’s agenda, there is no public recognition of their iron-clad hegemony over the Executive Branch. Neither are there any complaints about the loss of Congressional authority and inability to represent their constituents who voted them into office in the first place.
Meanwhile, voters are laboring under the delusion that those they elect will somehow rein in the Executive Branch. However, this has not happened, is not happening, and will not happen in the future.
How can the Trilateral Commission hegemony be overcome? Only by a direct and forceful Congressional confrontation, including legislation banning their members and operatives from serving in the Executive Branch.
I could not have said it better. Sure, there are some players not named and the global banksters are not mentioned, but that article tells you a great deal about what has happened to the Constitution. Executive fiat = dictatorship. The President of the United States has become, for all intents and purposes, nothing more than a puppet for global powers who really don't give a flying rip about this nation other than what they can take from it....from us. We are electing people to Congress who stand by with their thumbs in there ears or get in on the take, and generally do nothing to stop this madness. Oath? What oath? We also have a Supreme Court who, even if they could possibly cope with all of the unConstitutional fiats, don't do that job to our salvation either. (witness the Obamacare decision from Justice Roberts as a recent example)
And then I read an article at
American Thinker today that verified what I am seeing. A quote from that article: "The Obama administration has pursued an active regulatory agenda. The overall regulatory burden is now $1.8 trillion annually, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and this year alone new rules have added $215.4 billion in compliance costs."
