THE GESTAPO COMES TO AMERICA
By Betty Freauf November 17, 2012 NewsWithViews.com
A friend recently sent me a UTube showing how the Internal Revenue Service raided a company in Arkansas called Mountain Pure Water Company. The employees were thrown up against the wall while the estimated 40 agents with guns went through everything in the office and the plant leaving with 80+ boxes of information. It’s been eight months since the raid and about 85% of their inventory and paper work has not been returned. The company owner, John Stacks, was not on the property at the time but returned while the raid was in process. With him was his son, an attorney who requested that he be allowed to enter the facility but der heimatland polizei denied the request.
The owner and his attorney son were told the agents were from the Federal government and can do whatever, to whomever and whenever they want. Outside the community these injustices are rarely reported. However, SIXTY MINUTES did report on the Gibson Guitar raid that so far has cost Gibson about $5 million in losses. Gibson in Nashville was raided in November 2009, when agents seized a shipment of ebony from Madagascar. They were enforcing the Lacey Act, a century-old endangered species law that was amended in 2008 to include plants as well as animals. Gibson was implicated in wrongdoing but hasn’t been charged with anything. The U.S. Justice Department won’t comment about the case it’s preparing, but a court motion filed in June asserts Gibson’s Madagascar ebony was “contraband.” And then there was the Duncan Outdoors in Arkansas treated in a similar manner and went so far as to confiscate funds from their bank accounts. And how many more of these raids hasn’t the mainline media not reported?
As I was watching the story about the Gibson Guitar raid, my mind raced to 2009 and the auto industry bailout. Chrysler Corporation was having dealerships closed which ran parallel with Obama’s boondoggle called “Cash for Clunkers.” As explained in more detail below, it was later revealed these dealerships being closed were contributors to Republican causes. Is President Obama now using the old Chicago-style tactics on other industries as well? One caller to a talk show said he’d been UAW all his adult life and he was going to vote Republican for the first time and he said there was scuttlebutt around the plant that suggested many other UAW workers were also going to vote for Romney. So what happened? All the free phones Obama gave out to the young people might have had something to do with it. Later in another UTube we can hear one young man praising Obama for that effort while other young people were heard chanting: Karl Marx, Karl Marx, Karl Marx. The 1919 Communist slogan was “Give us one generation of small children to train to manhood and womanhood and we will set up the Bolshevist form of the Soviet government.”
A PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER UNDERSTANDS FINANCIAL CRISIS
As you’ll recall, Chrysler, like GM was in dire financial straits primarily due to promised unsustainable pensions and other perks in the private sector similar to the same problems all governmental entities are experiencing today. Occasionally there is a lonely voice in the wilderness calling out the warning and common sense does prevail. Recently in our local fish wrapper, a letter to the editor was from a Salem-Keizer (Oregon) that said promises must be broken to fix PERS system. She commented when “cuts and restraints” are mentioned in our meetings, never are these phrases followed by the words, “because of the PERS shortfall.”(It’s not a shortfall, it’s bankrupt) Because so many benefit by the generous PERS allotments and many state workers are married to state workers, there develops an economically incestuous viewpoint that the state has endless dollars to distribute in pension funds. This failure to act could be seen as a form of corruption in itself. She ended by saying we are living in perilous economic times. Promises must be broken and sacrifices must be made to ensure that future generations do not pay the price. Now, there is a teacher that gets it! But I have yet to see one letter of support and will she be punished in some way for speaking out?
FREE TRADE NEW WORLD ORDER STYLE
The federal government unconstitutionally offered to buy Chrysler to keep them from bankruptcy and “save (union) jobs.” Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, “Too big to fail” and the same story with GM. A ten minute video that was being passed around the Internet a few months ago showed GM’s CEO Dan Akerson addressing reporters in Shanghi China in February 2011. He was remarkably candid about the path GM had chosen after the taxpayers rescued GM saying that “seven out of 10 automobiles were made outside the U.S.” and instead manufactured in the People’s Republic of China. Something that perhaps was never emphasized in our public education civics lesson was a fundamental tenet of that system of government known as Fascism calls for private economic enterprise under control by a centralized government . Many American corporate CEOs and small entrepreneurs not only accept Washington’s help but are eager for more.
THE PRESIDENCY FIT FOR A KING
Presidents have learned by example that if Congress won’t do as they’re told, they simply make it work through Presidential Directives, Executive Orders and the gargantuan administrative state agencies neglecting the separation of powers. “Czar” is a popular term for an individual who will act like a top-level deputy administrator for the president in governmental departments but who doesn’t have to go through the Constitutional requirements for filling that role nor being vetted nor approved by the Senate nor prosecuted for malfeasance. In other words, no accountability.
So the feds organized their “Automotive Task Force” to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House’s unelected official Car Czar and was the liaison between Obama, Chrysler and GM. President Obama eventually ended up with 32 appointed (not elected) “czars” who answered only to him. The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox News and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the “Automotive Task force” headed by none other than Steve Rattner.
Suddenly we saw some dealerships being closed while others remained open and an interesting pattern was later discovered about which ones were shut down. The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to the Democratic political causes. Steve Rattner made up the lists and he just happens to be married to a Maureen White, a former national finance chairman of the Democrat National Committee. As such, she had access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation, Republican or Democrat.
Enter Snopes from stage left who debunked the story saying Republican donors being disproportionately targeted for closure at the behest of the Obama Administration was not true. I’m always fascinated by people who take Snopes and Factcheck at their word. It’s called controlled opposition and both are heavily financed by left-wing fat cats. So you be the judge…
USE GOVERNMENT TO GET RID OF COMPETITION
It certainly sounded legitimate to me. Maybe the Democrats have learned an old Republican John D. Rockefeller trick – get rid of the competition and you’ll make lots more money with your monopoly. It all began with the enactment of the National Bank Act of 1863 which allowed it to compete with the private sector. Creating the Federal Reserve in 1913 and the Internal Revenue Service were the biggest theft in U.S. history which has brought us in exactly one century to the financial crisis we are in today! Then the Wagner Act of 1935 granted monopoly power to unions to bargain for certain employees and call strikes, thereby enabling them to charge monopoly rates for their labor. Then there is education’s monopoly and now the Obamacare.
Now these current raids took place before President Obama signed on New Year’s Eve 2011 the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that gave himself absolute power to indefinitely detain American citizens suspected (by him) of being “belligerents.” If he was raiding businesses before the NDAA, how much worse is it going to be these next four years.? The Writ of Habeas Corpus forbids our military to be used against U.S. citizens; however, it is voided in the NDAA.
Three months later on March 2012, President Obama signed Executive Order entitled “National Defense Resources Preparedness,” which allows the government to seize control of national resources such as food supply and production, energy, water resources and transportation claiming “The U.S. must have an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and time of national emergency…” The group of FEMA certifiable nincompoops can’t even get gas and food to people on the East Coast weeks after Hurricane Sandy. No – it’s all about control.
THE USE OF INTIMIDATION
Does this suggest the president has the power now to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because some businessman doesn’t agree with his political agenda? This is reminiscent of Nazi Germany. I have on file an e-mail from a lady formerly from Germany who said Hitler didn’t conquer Germany, the German people elected him. I would like to recommend readers send $10 to Last Trumpet Ministries, PO Box 806, Beaver Dam, WI 53916 USA and get now deceased Pastor David J. Meyer’s DVD “Profiles of an Antichrist” produced shortly before the 2008 election and how his warnings came to pass.
The ability to strong arm employers into negotiations is one of the 10 most egregious powers and exploitative privileges that have been granted to labor unions by federal politicians, bureaucrats and judges. The National Labor Relations Act, the Federal Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act make it illegal for employers to resist a labor union’s collective bargaining efforts and make it difficult for employers to counter the aggressive and deceptive campaigns that are often waged by labor union organizers and these are the folks that support President Obama. The Lord does move in mysterious ways and I guess by Obama’s re-election, we may have temporarily avoided much bloodshed.
