Destabilization: Directed Discontent in Egypt and Beyond

By Paul and Phillip D. Collins, March, 11, 2011

When democracy granted democratic methods for us in the times of opposition, this was bound to happen in a democratic system. However, we National Socialists never asserted that we represented a democratic point of view, but we have declared openly that we used democratic methods only in order to gain the power and that, after assuming the power, we would deny to our adversaries without consideration the means which were granted to us in the times of opposition. – Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda

The flames of revolution were stoked in Egypt on January 25 as tens of thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets of Cairo on a day that was dubbed “the day of revolt against torture, poverty, corruption and unemployment” (“Egypt braces for nationwide protests”). The protesters’ selection of that day was certainly no accident. According to France 24, the organizers chose the day “to coincide with a national holiday to celebrate Police Day” (ibid). The day had originally been declared a formal public holiday by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in 2009, to celebrate the efforts of Egyptian police to maintain law and order in the streets of the Arab republic (Osman).

Apparently, protesters meant for the day to take on a new, revolutionary meaning. Relying on the Tunisian uprising to provide momentum, protest organizers called for economic and political reform and an end to what they considered to police state tactics. France 24 elaborates:

Among demands are the ouster of Interior Minister Habib al-Adly, whose police and security forces have been accused of heavy-handedness; the removal of the decades-old emergency law and a rise in minimum wages. The controversial law, which gives police wide powers of arrest, suspends constitutional rights and curbs non-governmental political activity, was renewed in 2010 for a further two years.

Blackmailed by the Bomb: Nuclear Anxiety and the Cult of the Superweapon

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, October 18, 2009

In May of 2009, respected American journalist Seymour Hersh shared a shocking revelation during an Arab TV interview. According to Hersh, Pakistan’s former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, was a victim of a “special death squad formed by former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney” (“U.S. special squad killed Benazir”). This squad was “headed by General Stanley McChrystal, the newly-appointed commander of U.S. army in Afghanistan” with Cheney using his position as chief of the Joint Special Operation Command to “clear the way for the U.S. by exterminating opponents through the unit and the CIA” (ibid).

Hersh has speculated that Bhutto was assassinated because she shared her opinion that Osama Bin Laden had been assassinated by Omar Saeed Sheikh (ibid). Could there be, however, a deeper reason for the Bhutto hit? These writers suggested as much during interviews on several radio shows shortly after the December 27, 2007 assassination. At that time, many in the media were blaming al Qaeda for the hit. The chief source for this claim seems to have been an “obscure Italian Web site” that alleged that its reporter had received a telephone call from Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, al Qaeda’s commander in Afghanistan (Ross). During the call, al-Yazid supposedly stated: “We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahedeen” (ibid). The Web site further contended that Ayman al Zawahri, al Qaeda’s number two leader, decided it was time to do away with Bhutto back in October 2007 (ibid). While all of this sounded like a smoking gun, the claim was anything but conclusive. According to ABC’s Brian Ross, U.S. intelligence officials said they could not confirm the claim of responsibility for the attack (ibid).

While al Qaeda may very well have been involved in the assassination, it should be understood that al Qaeda is merely part of a larger conspiratorial infrastructure, so it may not be accurate to place the blame solely at the doorstep of a single terrorist organization. Bhutto had vowed to do many things that would invite violent reprisal if she was re-elected prime minister. One promise that probably set off several alarm bells among the world’s wealthy and powerful appeared in a September 26, 2007 report in the Times of India. According to the report, Bhutto promised to allow inspectors from the United Nation’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to question A.Q. Khan, the metallurgist nuclear black marketer and father of Pakistan’s “Islamic Bomb” (“Bhutto commits to letting IAEA question A.Q. Khan”).

Survival of the Richest: Obama’s Corporate Stimulus Package

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, June 24, 2009

After 125-years of operating in the Dayton region, National Cash Register (NCR) abruptly announced plans to relocate to Georgia on June 2, 2009. Starting in July 2009, NCR’s worldwide headquarters will move to Duluth, Ga. Meanwhile, the company will transplant its manufacturing operation in Columbus, Ga. Overall, the move will cost Dayton more than 2,100 jobs. NCR’s decision to relocate came as a shock to the Dayton community, which had had very little discourse with the company in the months preceding the announcement. Shock swiftly turned to resentment as Ohio’s elected officials voiced their dissatisfaction with NCR’s apparent indifference.

“I know that local leaders as well as our own Department of Development had reached out to NCR over a period of months,” Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland said. “The response from NCR was not very encouraging. They never really asked for any specific assistance from the state and their decision was made devoid of any serious dialogue or consultation with the local community.” (Strickland)

In an audio clip from his official website, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said, “I’m unhappy with NCR. They’re a 125-year-old Dayton company that always had community support. Hundreds of workers and their families had built this company in the Miami Valley and I was not at all happy, nor was the Chamber of Commerce and the Mayor and others in Dayton, with NCR’s executives’ unwillingness to even work with people locally and unwillingness to talk to people from the Governor on down” ( “Brown Expresses Disappointment in NCR Decision and Vows to Help Affected Workers”).

Yet, an even greater shock was the revelation that Georgia used money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to facilitate the NCR deal.

The Ruling Class-Sponsored Race War and the Balkanization of America Part Five: Secession Fever

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, May 20, 2009

Homeland Insecurity

Activists on the American political landscape fear their government might consider them the enemy. Their concern isn’t driven by paranoia and baseless conspiracy theory. A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Intelligence Assessment entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” is the reason for the fear. The assessment essentially lumps immigration reformists, Christians, pro-lifers, Second Amendment proponents, opponents of globalism, and even veterans into the category of potential terrorists (“Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”).

Many pundits and pontificators of the controlled conservative movement have claimed that the report is a product of the Obama administration. In reality, however, the report is actually the result of a request made by the Bush administration to the DHS. Fox News’ Catherine Herridge revealed this little-known fact on April 15 when she stated:

Well this is an element of the story which has largely gone unreported. One [report] looks at right-wing groups, as you mentioned. And a second on left-wing groups. Significantly, both were requested by the Bush administration but not finished until President Bush left office. (“Fox Reporter Contradicts Fox: DHS Report On Right Wing Was Requested By The Bush Administration”)

The Intelligence Assessment painfully illustrates the fact that the government has been co-opted by cliques of deviant elites that desire to crush all opposition, whether it be from the left of the right. Unfortunately, the government would not be able to conduct such demonization campaigns if the activists of the “patriot” movement did not provide a pretext. No discernment has been practiced, and as a result agent provocateurs have poured into anti-authoritarian groups and conducted extremely successful radicalization campaigns. One of the radical ideas disseminated by these Judas goats is secession.

The CNP and the Politics of Secession

The anti-American concepts of secession and disunion have been heavily promoted within the American right-wing by secessionists and neo-Confederates associated with the Council for National Policy (CNP) The CNP is an elite combine established to act as a false alternative to Establishment organs such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). When one studies the available lists of CNP participants, however, one finds many members of the CFR among its ranks. Arnaud de Borchgrave, Edward Teller, Guy Vander Jagt, and J. Peter Grace are just some of the CNP participants who were/are involved with the CFR (Aho, no pagination).

CNP founding member Rev. R.J. Rushdoony was, during his lifetime, a major apologist for the Confederacy. Rushdoony was heavily influenced by the writings of Robert L. Dabney, the Chaplain to Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (Potok, no pagination). Dabney’s writings portrayed the South as a highly moral and Godly society that was unjustly oppressed by a Godless and decadent North (ibid). Dabney’s influence on Rushdoony can be seen in Rushdoony’s book, Institute of Biblical Law. In that book, Rushdoony advocated segregation and adamantly opposed interracial marriage (ibid). As Rushdoony’s influence spread into evangelical churches, the poison of Confederate nationalism was injected into America’s Christian community. Confederate nationalism is a major source of inspiration for the modern day secessionist movement.

Flirtation with secessionist themes continues today within the ranks of CNP participants. During a pro-life rally, CNP participant and a 2008 presidential candidate Alan Keyes stated that the United States will “cease to exist” and will descend into “the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war” if Obama is not stopped (Zahn, no pagination).

Expediting the Grand Jihad Part Two: Engaging the Muslim Brotherhood

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, Jan. 19, 2008

Inauguration: The Beast Enters the Gates

For many, the January 20 Presidential inauguration of Barack Obama is reason for celebration. Obama supporters everywhere believe that the event represents the introduction of the solution to America’s deepening crisis. It would break not a few hearts, however, if it was revealed that the enemies of America are going to be in attendance. According to a January 14 Associated Press article, a prayer will be offered at the inauguration by Ingrid Mattson, the first woman president of America’s largest Muslim group, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) (Zoll, “Muslim woman, rabbis to pray at inaugural service”). While many Americans may believe that this prayer offering represents a celebration of religious pluralism, the hidden message behind this display, which is only discernible to the power elite and the most astute observer, is that members of the Establishment will continue their torrent love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood. The first installment of this series established the Muslim Brotherhood as a dangerous organization that is partially responsible for spawning al Qaeda. Furthermore, the Brotherhood has a long running, symbiotic relationship with the power elite and the darker factions of the United States government and the intelligence community.

ISNA’s connection to the Muslim Brotherhood was revealed during the 2007 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial. Before being shut down by the United States government, the HLF was the largest Islamic charity in America. In 2001, evidence began to surface that HLF was a fundraising entity for Hamas, a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot. One of HLF’s founders, Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, was even a Hamas political leader. This lead to the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control classifying HLF as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (“Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons”). During the HLF trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator that was “intimately connected with the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to Hamas” (Gerstein, “U.S.: Facts Tie Muslim Groups To Hamas Front Case”). The prosecution also introduced several exhibits into evidence that established ISNA’s “intimate relationship” with the Muslim Brotherhood (ibid). In a 1991 internal document written by Mohamed Akram for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood, HLF appears on a list of Brotherhood “friends” (Akram).

Expediting the Grand Jihad: Barack Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, Jan. 11, 2008

Muslim Brotherhood Diagram As these authors write these words, Israel is conducting a major ground assault in the Gaza Strip. Israeli ground troops and heavy armor have moved deep into the Gaza Strip (“Israeli forces split Gaza in two”). According to the BBC, the move has, in effect, cut the territory in two (ibid). This ground assault followed hot on the heels of Operation Cast Lead, a December 27-28 series of Israeli airstrikes conducted in Gaza in response to Hamas’ refusal to renew the truce brokered by Egypt in the summer of 2008 (Khalil, “The already-strained Hamas-Egypt relationship sours”). Hamas had been launching rocket attacks into Israel since December 24, when no less than 70 rockets hit the small Jewish state, and Israel decided to strike back (“Israeli jets hit Hamas target, killing 1”).

Doubtless, the conflict between Israel and Hamas is one of the many issues that Obama will have to address when he enters the Oval Office. Is the President-elect sincere in his opposition to the terrorists responsible for the current Middle East crisis? Obama has repeatedly condemned Hamas, calling the group a terrorist organization (Oinounou, “A Hamas problem for Obama?”) The President-elect even went as far as to condemn former President Jimmy Carter for meeting with Hamas (ibid). But the words of Ahmed Yousef, a top Hamas political advisor, during a WABC interview, seem to suggest that Obama’s opposition to Hamas may be a mere public relations ploy. During the interview, Yousef stated:

“We don’t mind-actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance.” (Ibid)

The Floodgates Open Wide: Obama and our Eugenical Future

Featured-UNFPA

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, Dec. 31st, 2008

“And except those days should be shortened, no flesh shall be saved…”

Matthew 24:22

Obama and the Resurrection of the UNFPA

Obama - Eugenics - UNFPA During his November 4, 2008 presidential acceptance speech, Barack Obama declared: “[C]hange has come to America.” Yet, Obama neglected to mention that not all of the changes in store for America, or the world in general, are positive. One of the more sinister changes the Obama Administration intends to introduce is a revival of eugenical regimentation.

In a 2007 questionnaire prepared by RH Reality Check, a pro-abortion organization, the Obama Campaign stated: “Senator Obama would overturn the global gag rule and reinstate funding for UNFPA” (Lynch, “Sen. Barack Obama’s RH Issues Questionnaire”). Representative Carolyn Maloney would later express her confidence in the Obama promise to fund the UNFPA during a press conference at the National Press Club (Starr, “Congresswoman Confident Obama Will Fund UNFPA, Which Supports China’s Coercive Abortion Program”). The conference, which highlighted the release of the 2008 UN report on the state of the world’s population, gave Maloney an opportunity to take the podium and declare that the Obama Administration would reinstate funding for the UNFPA (ibid).

China

The crimes and faults of the Bush regime are almost too many to count. That being said, the Bush Administration’s restriction of UNFPA funding was well-justified. When one looks at the UNFPA’s track record, it could be argued that drying up the UNFPA’s money well was one of those rare moments of clarity that have appeared on the radar over the last eight years. The decision was motivated by a report prepared by the Population Research Institute (PRI) entitled “UNFPA, China, and Coercive Family Planning” (Ertelt, “Group Confirms Obama Would Fund Forced Abortions if UNFPA Money Restored”). According to LifeNews.com editor Steven Ertelt, the report “is based on an investigation conducted by PRI researchers in China’s Sihui County” (ibid). While many in the liberal camp want to believe that the report was a concocted fantasy, nothing could be further from the truth. Ertelt elaborates:

Relying on interviews with over two dozen victims and witnesses, the 2001 investigation found that coercive abortion and sterilization practices were taking place where the UNFPA had supposedly instituted a “client-centered and voluntary family planning program.” In fact, PRI’s investigation discovered that the UNFPA shared an office with the very Chinese family planning officials who were carrying out forced abortions. (ibid)

The investigation’s findings were so egregious that they motivated Colin Powell, who was Bush’s Secretary of State at the time, to conduct his own investigation (ibid). Powell’s research team confirmed PRI’s findings and Powell recommended that the Bush Administration revoke UNFPA funding (ibid). It is ironic that such a prescription would come from a man who would go on to cast his lot in with the Obama camp. Apparently, the revelations were too damning for even Powell to ignore.

Automated Opposition: The Technocratic Undercurrent of Zeitgeist: Addendum

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, Dec. 1st, 2008

Manufacturing Dissent

Jacque Fresco; Technocracy; Zeitgeist In his 1940 book The New World Order, H.G. Wells wrote:

… when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we [must] bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people. (The New World Order)

Wells’ prognostication was, without a doubt, correct. As the global government envisioned by the supranational elite is gradually instantiated, many voices of dissent will be raised and subsequently eradicated. Yet, not every dissenter may “die protesting against it,” but will die unwittingly embracing it instead. Some dissenters may, in fact, naively accept another form of global government being proffered as a viable alternative.

Such is the case with Zeitgeist: Addendum, the 2008 sequel to the pseudo-documentary entitled Zeitgeist, the Movie. The film was produced by Peter Joseph, a proponent of the inherently technocratic Venus Project. While the film presents a few valid critiques concerning the world monetary system, the military industrial complex, and America’s meddlesome foreign policy, it uses these political and social ills as a pretext for the presentation of counterfeit solutions. The movie’s prescriptions are posed within a distinctly Hegelian framework. In many instances, the solutions proffered by Zeitgeist: Addendum merely constitute dialectic extremes that produce precisely the same results as the problems that they allegedly address.

Moreover, Zeitgeist: Addendum either intentionally or unwittingly fails to recognize the problems for what they are: contrived grievances employed as polar extremes to perpetuate a dialectical climate. Instead, Zeitgeist: Addendum portrays the problems as the natural outgrowths of America’s constitutional republican system, thereby vilifying representative democracy and enshrining the technocratic paradigm. The film’s ultimate solution is little more than a Hegelian synthesis, as is evidenced by the dialectical commonalities between the Venus Project and the globalist forces that it purportedly opposes.

The War at Home

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, November 17th, 2008

Brigade Combat Team (BCT) On September 30 the Army Times released a story that made observers of increased domestic militarization a bit uneasy. The article, entitled “Brigade homeland tours starts October 1,” stated that beginning in October the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT) would be placed under the control of U.S. Army, which is the segment of Northern Command that deals with the Army (Cavallaro, no pagination). For the next 12 months, the 1st BCT will be used “as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks” (no pagination).

While this is not the first time an active duty unit has been called on to help at home, this is the first time, according to the article’s author Gina Cavallaro, that “an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities” (no pagination). When the BCT is deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan in 2010, another active duty unit will take its place, meaning that Americans can expect the involvement of active duty brigades domestically for a long time (no pagination).

The Seduction of Sarah Palin: Eugenics, CNP, and the Pioneer Fund

by Paul & Phillip D. Collins, October 13th, 2008

Eugenics and the Pioneer Fund

Left to right: Wickliffe Preston Draper (1891-1972), founder and benefactor of the Pioneer Fund; on the Board of Directors (1937-72). Harry Hamilton Laughlin (1880-1943), Pres. (1927-28) and Dir. (1923-39) of the American Eugenics Society; Superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office in (1910-21) and its Director (1921-40); first president of the Pioneer Fund (1937-41). Frederick Henry Osborn (1890-1981), second president of the Pioneer Fund (1941–1958); Pres. (1946-52) and Dir. (1969-72) of the American Eugenics Society.

No one on America’s political stage today has more motivation to oppose eugenics than Sarah Palin. The Alaskan Governor and Vice-Presidential running mate has learned experientially about the sanctity of life. In April, she gave birth to a baby boy with Down syndrome (Demer, no pagination). When she first learned that the child would be born with the birth defect, Palin chose life in a situation where 90 percent of women have an abortion (no pagination). Lisa Demer has correctly described Palin “as anti-abortion as a politician can be” (no pagination).

It was, therefore, disturbing to learn that Palin had been vetted by a secretive group with connections to the eugenics movement. In a September 1, 2008 article for The Nation, Max Blumenthal reported that the “members of the Council for National Policy are the hidden hand behind McCain’s Palin pick” (no pagination). According to Blumenthal, the Council for National Policy (CNP) met at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis the week of the Democratic National Convention to acquaint themselves with Palin (no pagination). The article also stated that the Palin selection secured McCain the support of the conservative movement and that CNP participant James Dobson “may soon emerge from his bunker in Colorado Springs to endorse McCain, providing the Republican nominee with the backing of the Christian right’s single most influential figure” (no pagination).

For many people on the left, it is hard to swallow the idea that the CNP has ties to the eugenics movement. After all, CNP participants such as James Dobson, Tim LaHaye, and Alan Keyes are considered to be stalwart pro-lifers. George W. Bush even put in an appearance at a secret meeting of the CNP in 2000 promising to nominate only pro-life judges (no pagination). There is a body of evidence, however, that suggests that all the pro-life rhetoric and pro-life participants may be mere window dressing to hide the sinister goal of creating a master race.
