Obama has again violated the Constitution by signing yet another executive order – he has passed down 141 to date – this time expanding the “pools of ineptitude, waste and civil liberties intrusions” perpetuated by the Department of Homeland Security.
Obama’s October 26 EO establishing a White House Security Partnership Council is classic fascism, or what Mussolini called corporatism — the “merger of state and corporate power.” It creates local partnerships between federal and private institutions “to address homeland security challenges.”
Collaboration between the federal government and selected“partners” – the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, community-based organizations and other “stakeholders” – will tighten government’s control of the homeland security industry. “Partnerships enhance our ability to address homeland security priorities, from responding to natural disasters to preventing terrorism, by utilizing diverse perspectives, skills, tools, and resources,” Obama’s EO states.
A “steering committee” will include representatives “at the Deputy agency head level” drawn from a potpourri of federal agencies, including the State Department, the bankster-dominated Department of Treasury and, importantly, the spooks over at Office of the Director of National Intelligence, a slot created as the war on terror gained steam. The DNI replaced the Director of Central Intelligence over at the CIA and merged operations with the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council at the heart of the national security state.
Obama’s EO follows a scathing Senate report on fusion centers, the bungled joint effort between DHS and the Justice Department to supposedly streamline information sharing among federal intelligence agencies, military services, and state and local law enforcement.
A report from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on Investigations said fiscally unaccountable fusion centers failed to detect terrorism in the United States, primarily due to the fact genuine terrorism is largely nonexistent (although the FBI strives at creating fake terrorism).
“Despite reviewing 13 months’ worth of reporting originating from fusion centers from April 1, 2009 to April 30, 2010, the Subcommittee investigation could identify no reporting which uncovered a terrorist threat, nor could it identify a contribution such fusion center reporting made to disrupt an active terrorist plot,” the document states, according to R. Jeffrey Smith at the Center for Public Integrity. “DHS’s involvement with fusion centers appeared not to have yielded timely, useful, terrorism-related intelligence for the federal intelligence community.”
“The Senate report, however, misses the point – for the government, fusion centers are not a boondoggle wasting tax payer money, they are the tip of the spear in intelligence gathering on enemies of the state,” we reported after the release of the Senate report earlier this month. “Scores of fusion centers around the country are not tracking al-Qaeda, they are tracking and monitoring Ron Paul supporters and dangerous constitutionalists.”
Obama’s illegal EO is designed to perpetuate the myth that the federal government and hand-picked corporate “partners” will save us from cave dwelling terrorists who hate us for our freedom. In fact, it is merely an effort to continue an ongoing boondoggle that has squandered trillions of dollars and resulted in more than a decade of war and destruction, including more than a million dead Iraqis and countless Afghans, Pakistanis and more recently a untallied number of Africans. It has also managed to do serious damage to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

An October 29, 2012 article by Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars.com reports that Facebook removed one of Alex Jones’ political posts and temporarily denied access to the Facebook page until Jones agreed to acknowledge that Facebook’s terms had been violated.
The image of Osama Bin Laden with the words “Al-CIA-da” spelled out across his chest was clearly not copyrighted and Watson states Jones received the “We removed content you posted” message because it violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Watson says there was also a secondary screen warning Jones that “other infringing images should be removed if the account was to remain in good standing.”
This isn’t the first time InfoWars.com content has been censored on Facebook, which advertises the fact that content posted on the site falls under public domain.
InfoWars.com reporter Darrin McBreen was warned not to voice his political opinion in September 2011 when Facebook took offense to comments posted on McBreen’s article, “Is living off the Grid now a crime?”
An August 2012 article here at Examiner.com reports that the US Department of Homeland Security has been monitoring Jones’ Facebook page for at least a couple of years. In response to a Freedom of Information Act request initiated by USWGO.com, documents were released that showed the DHS not only monitored Jones’ fan page, they also monitored Jones’ Facebook followers. The report included the following statement:
“Jones’ Facebook page offers 58 “V for Victory” posters that people can print, and as of 24 January, 1,840 people “liked” his “V for Victory” Facebook page. Over 135,000 “like” Jones’ personal Facebook page.”
The report then went on to include a photo and user name of one of Jones’ followers who had posted a message on Jones’ fan page, showing his support for the “V for Victory” campaign.
Just days after the release of the FOIA documents indicating InfoWars.com was being closely monitored by Facebook and the DHS, Jones’ You Tube channel was censored and threatened with termination because he published a video criticizing You Tube’s copyright policy.
“The video, which You Tube labeled “spam, scams or commercially deceptive” was an InfoWars report on You Tube’s copyright policy which makes it legal for third parties to claim ownership of your voice and use your voice on their videos.”“In this case, a music group named Biotronic used Jones’ voice in one of their video soundtracks, which implied ownership by You Tube standards. A You Tube bot then identified Jones’ voice on one of his own videos and flagged it for copyright violation.”
Jones’ currently has almost 300,000 subscribers to his You Tube channel and more than 244 million video views, yet even those numbers aren’t enough to save him from Google censorship. The Alex Jones Channel has repeatedly come under attack:
“Videos censored under this pretext include footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest,during which members of the group attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.”“You Tube also deleted a video of Alex Jones using satire to criticize global warming alarmist and University of Oregon Professor Kari Norgaard, who argued that man-made climate change skeptics should be”treated” for having a mental disorder.”
“In December 2010, Jones You Tube channel was completely frozen when he posted only a small segment of a graphic Wikileaks massacre video, the contents of which the Pentagon did not want released for public consumption. At the same time, major media outlets like CBS News and Russia today post the video in its entirety and You Tube let them through unchallenged.”
And to round out the picture, Jones’ websites, InfoWars.com and PrisonPlanet.com have been permanently blocked from appearing in the Google News feed. Since November 2010 Jones’ sites have been effectively censored, appearing in the Google News platform only when linked to by smaller websites.
In his article, Watson reminds readers, that Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are free to push their political agendas all over the Internet, without interference. Even individual users can publish their Photoshopped political campaign propaganda without fear of censorship or harassment.
Step over the line, though, and you might end up like former Marine Brandon Raub who was kidnapped from his home by police, FBI and Secret Service agents and forcibly incarcerated in a psychiatric ward for a seemingly unremarkable Facebook post:
“I mentioned the Bilderberg Group and their violation of politicians in this country meeting with them and specifically the Logan Act,” said Raub, adding that the Secret Service agents were taking notes to research the topics further at a later time.”“After around 15 minutes of conversation, the police surrounded Raub and grabbed him, failing to read him his Miranda rights. When Raub appealed to the police to allow him to put some clothes on, even at gunpoint, the cops refused.”
