Global Governance: Pushing the Normal

by Sandy Stringfellow

Bill Gertz, a preeminent writer on matters of national intelligence, reported the following in the Washington Free Beacon on November 29, 2012, in his article Free Internet Under Fire:

“A Russian government proposal to amend a U.N. treaty at a meeting of the world body’s World Conference on International Telecommunications in Dubai next week contains a provision that calls for bringing ‘IP-based networks’ under U.N. control.

The U.N. treaty, called the International Telecommunications Regulations (ITR), is currently limited to regulating international telecommunications services. The Russian proposal to amend the treaty has the support of other non-democratic states such as China and Iran.

A copy of the Russian proposal was made public on Nov. 13. It states that ‘the [proposed] additions to the ITRs … are aimed at formulating an approach that views the Internet as a global physical telecommunications infrastructure, and also as a part of the national telecommunications infrastructure of each Member State,’ according to Cnet news.”

A United Nations treaty for global internet control? This probably doesn’t qualify as a startling development to news observers, since King Barry singed an executive order in July of 2012 that outlines emergency policies for federal control of the Internet.  

None-the-less, how peculiar; is it a case of run-away imagination, or is there an on-going and discreetly overarching push that would appear designed to eventually bring every element of free and open societies and their nation-states under U.N. control?

Global control of firearms through mandatory registration and interlinked world-wide databases per the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) controlling navigation, fishing, oil drilling, and all other actions on the high seas more than 200 miles off-shore, along with other efforts to funnel distribution of food and energy – and yes, even the distribution of wealth – are now considered by interested parties within the purvey of U.N. “authority” as the never-ending quest for “social justice” continues: stamp of global Progressive Marxism at its finest.


Informed readers certainly know the answer. The Progressive Marxist goal is always one of control, because without absolute control there cannot exist a One World Government functioning unimpeded within a New World Order.

Mark Levin was spot on during one of his recent programs (11/29/12) – as usual – when he had Dick Morris on the air to discuss his new book Here Come the Black Helicopters!: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom.

Mr. Morris was initially sheepish in opening remarks promoting his conspiracy-rich book, reflecting the understanding that many people still have knee-jerk reactions of derision to a mere mention of the increasingly relevant word “conspiracy.” It’s as if some individuals find it justifiable to reject a long and verifiable history of tyranny throughout the world in their efforts to deny on-going foreign quests for global domination. One wonders if such thinking could ever grasp the intent of communism.

How blind must one be to refuse acknowledgement that the beautiful blue orb being gravitationally held in alignment as it hurtles through the vacuum of space has a past filled with tyranny and all the misery that accompanies it. Liberty has been the rare exception rather than the general rule over man’s brief course of time on the earth; at no place within man’s history has liberty existed as it once did in the United States of America.

Mr. Levin pointed out that – five years ago – if anyone had sought to pique his interest in a subject related to “conspiracy” he would have rolled his eyes and tuned them out, but such is far from the case today; that with the preponderance of hard evidence to support what is – in fact – taking place globally, nothing is off the table for consideration so far as implementation – being done as secretly as is possible – of a New World Order where the United Nations pulls the strings of global government.

The “climate change” hoax is one effective method of gaining the global political leverage – and thus power – to implement the New World Order agenda by controlling human behavior. Emotional manipulation through repetitive indoctrination provides the conditional foundation for establishing guilt and fear; two powerful stimuli and reliable motivators once people have been trained to accept even the most fraudulent of premises. Our distracted, dumbed-down and narcissistic society succumbs ever more easily to the most basic tenants of mass persuasion through fundamental thought-conditioning methodology.

Consider Agenda 21, another important push in the continuing efforts to affect “change” in the direction of global governance. The clever strategy for controlling population movement via land use restrictions derived from government zoning edicts issued by unelected liberally-biased bureaucratic officials is one tactic. Ever increasing purchases by government – or indirect seizure through loan defaults in a crippled economy – of land is yet another means of limiting options; the idea being to steer populations into centralized urban existences.

The suffering on small privately owned farms – many handed down from one generation to the next – under continuous assault from an Environmental Protection Agency actively working to “restrict” them out of business is heart-rending. Exactly where in our U.S. Constitution is this tyrannical behavior allowed by our own government?

Lest we forget about the unions, especially the public sector unions financed with taxpayer dollars; that’s where the real power and wealth accrues. As Andy Stern – former president of SEIU and frequent visitor to the White House – has pointed out, “Workers of the World Unite” is no longer just a slogan. Matthew Vadum, writing in Front Page Magazine on October 21, 2011, revealed Mr. Stern’s true intentions as well as his ideological roots:

“Andy Stern is one of the most outspoken, cocksure neo-communists of the American labor movement. ‘We like to say: We use the power of persuasion first,’ Stern said, channeling Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky. ‘If it doesn’t work, we try the persuasion of power.’”

“Stern quotes Karl Marx in television appearances. In 2007, the wannabe Bolshevik told Bill Moyers that his Service Employees International Union (SEIU) was expanding to Australia, Switzerland, England, South America, and Africa.

‘We’ve been working with unions around the world. And what we’re working towards is building a global organization. Because “workers of the world unite,” it’s not just a slogan anymore. It’s the way we’re going to have to do our work.’”

Unions are undoubtedly one of the most important keys to globalization. It’s reasonable to think of thuggish union behavior as “The Chicago Way” manifesting itself globally. After all, Chicago is the de facto capital of our new “Ameritopia”; the one and same described and documented by Mark Levin in his book Ameritopia. 

Washington, D.C., is but bread and circuses; the orchestration and financing epicenter for Progressive Marxism is Chicago. 

Chicago is an ideological Progressive Marxist mother-lode; the wired and sewn-up territory of criminals, considered off-limits by most intrepid investigative journalists. The suspicious trail of corpses – former vassals with incriminating information – provides ample persuasion to tread lightly on Chicago turf, yet it’s where any thorough investigator could perhaps ascertain “the real ‘ugly’ inside” Chicago’s radiant exterior. Thanks to DW Ulsterman for helping bring truth to light about the frequently invisible and largely unknown modern underbelly of Chicago and its’ radical left Progressive Marxist brain trust and power base. Without them, King Barry would never have gained his pinnacle of political influence, nor a second four year reign of destruction aimed at our Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, property ownership rights, and the Rule of Law.

The Real Obama is — NOBODY

by Robert Arvay

Many people have been intrigued by the mystery of who, and what, Barack Obama really is. And the reference here is not to the disputed facts about his birth place, nor to speculations about his parentage, nor to the many other unresolved ambiguities in his background.

Instead, the important mystery concerns who Barack Obama is right now. For when one delves into the undisputed facts, such as the routinely missed meetings with top level staff, the unseemly number of golf outings, and the numerous, lavish, taxpayer-paid vacations, it becomes clear that Barak Obama is a president in title only. He does not actually function as one. Which is why, if Obama is a mystery, he is a mystery without a solution. For if one asks, who is Barack Obama, the practical answer is that he is nobody.

Even during his first presidential campaign, the question was repeatedly asked, what are the qualifications of this man to be the leader of the world’s only superpower? The answers were merely that he ran a campaign that others actually ran for him, and that he edited the Harvard Law Review without ever having edited any of the articles in it, much less written one, and that . . . well, that pretty much completes the list. And so the mystery is not solved, but rather deepens.

The only thing that Obama brought to the political table is the fact that he was the most liberal senator in the congress. This, and only this, qualified him to become the most leftist president the nation has ever had. Indeed, he is so far to the left that the Marxist/Leninist parties of America support him full throttle. See

So who is the Barack Obama that sits at a desk in the oval office? Doesn’t just being there prove that he is the president? Alas, Obama is only a figurehead. While he may hold the title of presidency, he does not hold the power. Besides being the most radical leftist person ever to occupy the oval office, he is also the laziest and most incompetent. He has never run so much as a lemonade stand, and would not know how to begin.

Obama is like an actor on a TV series. He plays the role of president. But that’s all he does. The script writers, directors and producers tell him what to do. Obama would not know how to construct and implement a national policy if his life depended on it.

Who are these script writers? George Soros, with his billions of dollars and mastery of world market forces, is undoubtedly a potent power in the shadows. Politically, Valerie Jarrett also seems to be one of the most influential and controlling people pulling the strings. See But there are certainly others as well. Obama has appointed more so-called policy czars (thirty-four of them!) than all previous presidents combined.

This overwhelming dependence on constitutionally questionable authority has alarmed not only Republicans, but leading Democrats as well. According to Feb. 25, 2009, Sen. Robert Byrd, the longest-serving senator in history wrote a letter to Obama, detailing his (Byrd’s) concern about the number of “czars” . . . Obama has appointed. None have been confirmed by the Senate.”

Obama needs these unaccountable “commissars,” for they have something that Obama cannot fake, not even with an array of teleprompters. They have expertise. Obama does not. And while in theory, it is Obama who calls the shots, it is implausible that anyone with no expertise could issue competent orders to those who thoroughly know what they are doing.

To be sure, the policies Obama is instructed to promote are those with which he agrees. As was noted, he is the most radical leftist ever to hold the office. But agreeing with a policy is not the same as understanding its nuts and bolts. Nor is it the same as understanding how to operate the levers of power.

For, presidential power does not come pre-packaged. If it did, you or I could fly a 747 jet airliner by merely putting on a pilot’s uniform. As Nixon aide John Ehrlichman (or was it H.R. Haldeman?) said in a televised interview, the president does not simply open a desk drawer and find his power in an envelope. Real power requires years of intense, active involvement, as preparation for obtaining and wielding it.

Obama’s qualifications to lead a nation are exactly the same as his qualifications to fly Air Force One — nothing. His years of preparation went up in smoke, be it tobacco smoke or otherwise.

But give credit where credit is due. Obama does understand some basic elements of power — if by power you mean brute force, thuggery and fraud. He’s got that down pat.

However, he has not the slightest clue how to enlist voluntary support from people who disagree with him — even when he desperately needs those people. Lyndon Johnson demonstrated his mastery of this skill, by calling in to the oval office, one by one, congressmen who could potentially help him. Johnson would ask each one, name one favor that you realistically think I can do for you. If they did, then Johnson would say, in return, this is what I want from you. Deal or no deal?

For Obama, by contrast, there is no such finesse. For him, enlisting support means deceiving people, threatening them, and taking advantage of those who have good will. He is the penultimate con artist, but nothing more.

These tactics work for a time. But eventually, the realities of power will overtake Obama.

His downfall may come in one single form, or in many forms at one time. He may be done in by his complicity in the murders of four Americans in Libya. Or it may take the kind of multiple storm system that was Hurricane Sandy — opposite economic forces colliding in a destructive whirlwind of rain and sea water.

But the day will come when Obama’s usefulness to his handlers will come to an end. Once there is no longer a need for well delivered speeches authored by others— once the charming smile fades— when events overwhelm the ability of any policy to mask failure— sooner or later, probably sooner, Barak Obama will become more of a liability than an asset to those who wield the real power of the presidency.

When that happens, Obama will be cast aside, and he will have no clue as to what happened. He will, more likely figuratively than literally, find himself on the sidewalk, wondering where went the adoring crowds, the perquisites and privileges, and the mentoring that once dominated his life. His next biography will likely be titled, A Greco-Amer
ican Tragedy
, complete with the fatal flaw and the inevitable consequence.

So then, who is this mysterious figure who came out of nowhere, with not the slightest achievement on his resume, and somehow became seated at the desk in the oval office? There is no answer. Obama was a nobody before he became well known, he will be a nobody again, and the irony is this: underneath all the pretense, he is a nobody now.
