Cell Phones What every activist needs to know

Cell Phones
(What every activist needs to know)

By Daniel J Towsey

All Truth Soldiers Need to know this.

Here’s some scary information you need to know about cell phones, and your privacy.

All conversations on digital cell phones are stored forever.

They never erase the digital files. [As well as the GPS location of the cell phone or vehicle.]
The GPS pinpoints you to within a few feet. If you are being stalked or spied on.

They send out agents that know where you are.
The agents carry small hand held units that zero in on you.

Your cell phone is a listening device.

They can listen to all your conversations within fifty feet of the phone whether the phone is on or not.

The software that permits them to take over your phone is not preinstalled.

They install it by making a very quick call to
your phone. And the phone does not need to be on and it does not ring.

They also are able to read all your stored information such as telephone numbers in your phones memory.

They can even remotely turn on and ring your phone.

They can and have changed the ring tone with a voice message.
Such as ‘Answer your phone’ or anything else they want to say.

If your phone has a camera.

They can see everything that the lenses is pointing at. anytime!

The digital files of your voice can be used to create  a computerized conversation with your own voice.

This can be used against you.

Someone can actually make a call using your voice and speak to anyone you know.

They would actually believe they are talking to you. They use a computer program to replace the callers voice as they speak.

Cell phone also can and do read any RFID chips that are near it.

Many more items including clothing has RFID chips in them.

With these chips they can even tell what you’re wearing and what color your clothes is.

They can even use your voice track to transmit microwave sound to you while you sleep.

You would actually think they are your own thoughts.

This can be done through any walls. I am not kidding.

This technology was developed long ago.

After all microwaves are sound wave.

Some cell phones have the option to be set to work in analog.

Set it that way.

It is well worth it.

Even if phone does not work as well.

Ask when you get your phone if you can set it to analog.

Any calls made to your phone can not be traced.

The calls well appear to come from your own house phone.

Also it does not matter that your phone is not listed.

One last thing. In North America, all cell phone systems are controlled by Israeli companies.
All land lines are pre-wired for eavesdropping by the same companies.

And this is related, so I thought I would mention it here.

If you have an anti-theft system on your vehicle. It probably has GPS too.
And if it has Ontrac.

They can listen in to all conversations while you are in your vehicle.

Oh I forgot to mention a very important thing.

The telephone does not need to be turned on for them to do these things.

Removing the battery is a good idea.

I am not guessing here. I know this is done from reading court transcripts from intelligence trials.

Researchers Find and Decode the Spy Tools Governments Use to Hijack Phones

Researchers Find and Decode the Spy Tools Governments Use to Hijack Phones



Newly uncovered components of a digital surveillance tool used by more than 60 governments worldwide provide a rare glimpse at the extensive ways law enforcement and intelligence agencies use the tool to surreptitiously record and steal data from mobile phones.

The modules, made by the Italian company Hacking Team, were uncovered by researchers working independently of each other at Kaspersky Lab in Russia and the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs in Canada, who say the findings provide great insight into the trade craft behind Hacking Team’s tools.

The new components target Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry users and are part of Hacking Team’s larger suite of tools used for targeting desktop computers and laptops. But the iOS and Android modules provide cops and spooks with a robust menu of features to give them complete dominion over targeted phones.

They allow, for example, for covert collection of emails, text messages, call history and address books, and they can be used to log keystrokes and obtain search history data. They can take screenshots, record audio from the phones to monitor calls or ambient conversations, hijack the phone’s camera to snap pictures or piggyback on the phone’s GPS system to monitor the user’s location. The Android version can also enable the phone’s Wi-Fi function to siphon data from the phone wirelessly instead of using the cell network to transmit it. The latter would incur data charges and raise the phone owner’s suspicion.

“Secretly activating the microphone and taking regular camera shots provides constant surveillance of the target—which is much more powerful than traditional cloak and dagger operations,” notes Kaspersky researcher Sergey Golovanov in a blog post about the findings.

It’s long been known that law enforcement and intelligence agencies worldwide use Hacking Team’s tools to spy on computer and mobile phone users—including, in some countries, to spy on political dissidents, journalists and human rights advocates. This is the first time, however, that the modules used to spy on mobile phone users have been uncovered in the wild and reverse-engineered.

Kaspersky and Citizen Lab discovered them after developing new methods to search for code fragments and digital certificates used by Hacking Team’s tools.

The modules work in conjunction with Hacking Team’s core surveillance tool, known as the Remote Control System, which the company markets under the names Da Vinci and Galileo.

In a sleek marketing video for Galileo, Hacking Team touts the tool as the perfect solution for obtaining hard-to-reach data—such as data taken by a suspect across borders or data and communications that never leave the target’s computer and therefore can’t be siphoned in transit.

“You want to look through your targets’s eyes,” says the video. “While your target is browsing the web, exchanging documents, receiving SMS….”

Hacking Team’s tools are controlled remotely through command-and-control servers set up by Hacking Team’s law enforcement and intelligence agency customers to monitor multiple targets.

Kaspersky has tracked more than 350 command-and-control servers created for this purpose in more than 40 countries. While Kaspersky found only one or two servers in most of these countries, the researchers found 64 in the United States—by far the most. Kazakhstan followed with 49, Ecuador with 35 and the United Kingdom with 32. It’s not known for certain whether law enforcement agencies in the U.S. use Hacking Team’s tool or if these servers are used by other governments. But as Kaspersky notes, it makes little sense for governments to maintain their command servers in foreign countries where they run the risk of losing control over the servers.

In addition to the modules that were uncovered, Citizen Lab obtained from an anonymous source a copy of the lengthy user’s manual (

Police Story: Hacking Team’s Government Surveillance Malware)


that Hacking Team provides customers. The illustrated document explains in detail how to build the surveillance infrastructure needed to deliver implants to targeted devices and to use the software tool’s dashboard to manage intelligence gleaned from infected computers and phones.

“This gives new visibility into the operational procedures of lawful intercept malware,” says Citizen Lab researcher Morgan Marquis-Boire. “Previous research has allowed us to understand how the software works. This allows us a holistic view of how this type of targeted surveillance is conducted.”

The modules and training manual all show that Hacking Team is well aware of the attention its products have received from researchers in recent years and has taken several steps to thwart attempts to understand how its spy tools work.

“They are well aware that their product may show up on the analyst chopping block at some stage, and they’re taking various steps to mitigate this risk,” says Marquis-Boire.

The Android spy module, for example, uses obfuscation to make it harder to reverse-engineer and examine the module. And before installing itself on machines, Hacking Team’s main spy tool has scouting agents that conduct reconnaissance to identify anything on a system that might detect it.

Once on a system, the iPhone module uses advance techniques to avoid draining the phone’s battery, turning on the phone’s microphone, for example, only under certain conditions.

“They can just turn on the mic and record everything going on around the victim, but the battery life is limited, and the victim can notice something is wrong with the iPhone, so they use special triggers,” says Costin Raiu, head of Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis team.

One of those triggers might be when the victim’s phone connects to a specific WiFi network, such as a work network, signaling the owner is in an important environment. “I can’t remember having seen such advanced techniques in other mobile malware,” he says.

Hacking Team’s mobile tools also have a “crisis” module that kicks in when they sense the presence of certain detection activities occurring on a device, such as packet sniffing, and then pause the spyware’s activity to avoid detection. There is also a “wipe” function to erase the tool from infected systems. Hacking Team asserts that this will uninstall and erase all traces of the tools, but Citizen Lab discovered that initiating a wipe on some mobile phones creates telltale signs. On a BlackBerry, for example, it causes the device to automatically restart. On Android devices, the uninstall can, under certain conditions, cause a prompt to appear onscreen asking permission from the user to uninstall an application called “DeviceInfo”—the name the Android spy tool uses for itself.

In addition to the variety of obfuscation measures the tools use, Hacking Team also advises customers to set up several anonymous proxy servers through which to route data stolen from victim machines. In this way, researchers and victims won’t be able to easily follow the path the data takes back to command servers. Oddly, Hacking Team borrows the logo of the hacktivist group Anonymous—an empty black business suit—to designate the anonymized proxy servers in its user manual.

Hacking Team borrowed the logo of the hacking group Anonymous to designate anonymized proxy servers in its user manual.

Hacking Team first developed its Remote Control System spy suite in 2001. Prior to this, the developers had made a free, open-source tool for conducting man-in-the-middle attacks that was used by hackers and security researchers alike. Soon, police in Milan contacted the two authors of this tool—Alberto Ornaghi and Marco Valleri—for help developing something to eavesdrop on Skype communications. It was from this that their collaboration with law enforcement was born.

Hacking Team has long argued that its products are intended for lawful governmental interception only and that it won’t sell its products to repressive regimes and countries blacklisted by NATO. But its spy suite reportedly has been used to spy on the citizen journalist group Mamfakinch in Morocco and appears to have been used by someone in Turkey to target a woman in the U.S. who was a vocal critical of Turkey’s Gulen movement.

Indeed, the Android spy module that Citizen Lab uncovered was masquerading as a legitimate news app for Qatif Today, an Arabic-language news and information service that covers the Qatif region in eastern Saudi Arabia. The government of Saudi Arabia has faced off several times in the last few years against Shia protestors in the Qatif region who have demanded political reform from the Sunni government and the release of political prisoners.

Although the Citizen Lab researchers are careful to point out that they don’t know for certain that the Saudi government is using the Hacking Team tool to spy on political dissidents, circumstantial evidence shows this may be the case.

The malicious Qatif Today app was discovered after someone uploaded the file in March to the VirusTotal web site—a site owned by Google that aggregates several dozen antivirus scanners to detect malware. The file was signed with a bogus certificate that appeared to belong to Sun Microsystems. Citizen Lab found evidence that a Twitter account of interest to Shiites in Qatif may have been used to tweet a link to the malicious file to lure targets into downloading it onto their phones.

While Hacking Team’s core Galileo tool for spying on computers is valuable for governments, the mobile spy modules are particularly attractive to repressive regimes where activists and others use their mobile phones to organize and stay connected during protests.

Cops can install the phone implants directly onto a mobile device if they have physical access to it. But they can also install the implants if a user connects the mobile device to a computer—for example, to charge the device—and the computer is already infected with Da Vinci or Galileo.

The iOS spy module works only on jailbroken iPhones, but agents can simply run a jailbreaking tool and then install the spyware. The only thing protecting a user from a surreptitious jailbreak is enabling a password on the device. But if the device is connected to a computer infected with Da Vinci or Galileo software and the user unlocks the device with a password, the malware on the computer can surreptitiously jailbreak the phone to install the spy tool.

So far, the researchers haven’t uncovered any methods used for remotely infecting phones with the Hacking Team malware via a phishing attack or a malicious web site.

Citizen Lab points out in its report on the malware that it’s important to understand how Hacking Team’s tools work, since they are powerful weapons, no different from the types of tools used by nation states against one another. But in this case they’re employed by government customers not against other government targets but against ordinary citizens.

“This type of exceptionally invasive toolkit, once a costly boutique capability deployed by intelligence communities and militaries, is now being marketed for targeting everyday criminality and ‘security threats,’” they write. “An unstated assumption is that the entities able to buy these tools will use them correctly, and primarily for law enforcement purposes. As our research has shown, however, by dramatically lowering the entry cost on invasive and hard-to-­trace monitoring, it lowers the cost of targeting political threats” too.

Update 6:45 am:: To clarify that the work the two Italian developers did on their man-in-the-middle tool was separate from the work they later did to create their flagship tool, RCS/Galileo.

Cell Phone Searches: Come Back with a Warrant!


Cell phones contain a near endless amount of information. Treating cell phone searches as though they are the same as looking through a backpack just doesn’t make sense.

The BCCLA intervened in the R. v. Mann case to argue that cell phone searches require a warrant. On June 18, the BC Court of Appeal ruled that the law no longer permits police to conduct warrantless searches of the entire contents of an individual’s cell phone.  The court decided not to rule on whether or not a “cursory search” of a cell phone would be permissible.

R. v. Mann

Posted on May 6, 2013

This case concerns an issue that is arising with increasing frequency in the law enforcement context: whether the power to search incident to a lawful arrest includes the authority to search the contents of cell phones.

Mr. Mann was twice arrested in connection with an alleged kidnapping. On both occasions, his Blackberry cell phone was seized from him. Both phones were eventually sent for data extraction, which was completed after a significant period of time had passed from the initial seizure of the phones. The analysis of the smartphones captured every piece of data generated by the user.

The BCCLA was granted leave to intervene in this case. The BCCLA argued that applying the traditional rule of search incident to arrest to mobile devices would significantly undermine privacy rights and greatly expand warrantless police search powers. The BCCLA argued that warrantless searches of cell phones violate the Charter’s section 8 right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure in all circumstances.

The BCCLA’s argument can be found here 


On June 18, 2014, the BC Court of Appeal released its judgment in this case. The Court of Appeal held that warrantless searches of cell phones violated section 8 of the Charter. According to the Court, the law no longer permits police to conduct warrantless searches of the entire contents of an individual’s cell phone. The Court declined to make a ruling about whether a warrantless “cursory search” of a cell phone would be permissible. Although the evidence was obtained in violation of the Charter, the Court went on to find that it should not be excluded as its admission would not bring the administration of justice into disrepute.

Your Cell Phone Makes You A Prisoner Of A Digital World Where Virtually Anyone Can Hack You And Track You

Posted by truther on April 8, 2012 // Leave Your Comment

If you own a cell phone, you might as well kiss your privacy goodbye. Cell phone companies know more about us than most of us would ever dare to imagine. Your cell phone company is tracking everywhere that you go and it is making a record of everything that you do with your phone.

Much worse, there is a good chance that your cell phone company has been selling this information to anyone that is willing to pay the price – including local law enforcement. In addition, it is an open secret that the federal government monitors and records all cell phone calls.

The “private conversation” that you are having with a friend today will be kept in federal government databanks for many years to come. The truth is that by using a cell phone, you willingly make yourself a prisoner of a digital world where every move that you make and every conversation that you have is permanently recorded.

But it is not just cell phone companies and government agencies that you have to worry about. As you will see at the end of this article, it is incredibly easy for any would-be stalker to hack you and track your every movement using your cell phone.

In fact, many spyware programs allow hackers to listen to you through your cell phone even when your cell phone is turned off. Sadly, most cell phone users have absolutely no idea about any of this stuff.

The next time that you get a notice from your cell phone company about “changes” to the privacy policy, you might want to play close attention. Your cell phone company might be about to sell off your most personal information to anyone that is willing to write a big enough check. The following is from a recent CNN article….

Your phone company knows where you live, what websites you visit, what apps you download, what videos you like to watch, and even where you are. Now, some have begun selling that valuable information to the highest bidder.

In mid-October, Verizon Wireless changed its privacy policy to allow the company to record customers’ location data and Web browsing history, combine it with other personal information like age and gender, aggregate it with millions of other customers’ data, and sell it on an anonymous basis.

So who is buying this information?

We just don’t know.

But we do know that local law enforcement agencies all over the country are increasingly using cell phone data to nail suspects, and often it is the cell phone companies that are the ones selling them the cell phone data that they need.

According to a recent New York Times article, many local police departments are doing this without getting a warrant first….

“Law enforcement tracking of cellphones, once the province mainly of federal agents, has become a powerful and widely used surveillance tool for local police officials, with hundreds of departments, large and small, often using it aggressively with little or no court oversight.”

That same article says that cell phone companies have standard prices that they charge to local law enforcement officials for information that they request….

“Cell carriers, staffed with special law enforcement liaison teams, charge police departments from a few hundred dollars for locating a phone to more than $2,200 for a full-scale wiretap of a suspect.”

So if you are breaking the law, your cell phone may be used to gather evidence and to track you down. In the United States, cell phone companies are required by law to be able to pinpoint the locations of their customers to within 100 meters. So if you are a criminal, your cell phone could be leading the police right to you even as you are reading this article.

Sometimes the police don’t even use the cell phone companies. Recently, the Wall Street Journal ran an article that discussed the capabilities of the “stingray devices” that many local law enforcement agencies are using now.

A “stingray device” acts like a cell phone tower and it can gather any information that a normal cell phone tower can. The following is how a recent Wired article described these “stingrays”….

You make a call on your cellphone thinking the only thing standing between you and the recipient of your call is your carrier’s cellphone tower. In fact, that tower your phone is connecting to just might be a boobytrap set up by law enforcement to ensnare your phone signals and maybe even the content of your calls.

So-called stingrays are one of the new high-tech tools that authorities are using to track and identify you. The devices, about the size of a suitcase, spoof a legitimate cellphone tower in order to trick nearby cellphones and other wireless communication devices into connecting to the tower, as they would to a real cellphone tower.

The government maintains that the stingrays don’t violate Fourth Amendment rights, since Americans don’t have a legitimate expectation of privacy for data sent from their mobile phones and other wireless devices to a cell tower.

Isn’t that just great?

The attitude that law enforcement agencies seem to have is that once we use a cell phone we are essentially willingly throwing our Fourth Amendment rights out the window.

In some areas of the United States, police are physically extracting data from cell phones any time they want as well. According to the ACLU, state police in Michigan have been using “extraction devices” to download data from the cell phones of motorists that they pull over. This is taking place even if the motorists that are pulled over are not accused of doing anything wrong. The following is how an article posted on CNET News describes the capabilities of these “extraction devices”….

The devices, sold by a company called Cellebrite, can download text messages, photos, video, and even GPS data from most brands of cell phones. The handheld machines have various interfaces to work with different models and can even bypass security passwords and access some information.

Fortunately these “extraction devices” are being challenged in court. Let us hope that they will be banned.

But what local law enforcement officials are doing pales in comparison to what federal agencies are doing.

For example, the FBI claims that it can demand to see your cell phone data whenever it would like to.

Not only that, the FBI has also been remotely activating the microphones on the cell phones of suspects that they want to listen to. This can be done even when the cell phone is turned off….

The FBI appears to have begun using a novel form of electronic surveillance in criminal investigations: remotely activating a mobile phone’s microphone and using it to eavesdrop on nearby conversations.

The technique is called a “roving bug,” and was approved by top U.S. Department of Justice officials for use against members of a New York organized crime family who were wary of conventional surveillance techniques such as tailing a suspect or wiretapping him.

Could the FBI be listening to you right now?

If there is a cell phone in the room they could be.

But some other federal agencies listen to a lot more cell phone calls than the FBI does.

It has been an open secret for a long time that the federal government monitors and records all cell phone calls that are made for national security reasons.

In fact, the federal government is even trying to collect records for calls that have been made in the distant past. According to USA Today, the goal is “to create a database of every call ever made”….

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

In addition, the federal government has been constructing the largest data center in the history of the world out in the Utah desert. This data center will be used to house an almost unimaginable amount of digital data (including your cell phone calls). The following is how a recent Wired article described this new facility….

Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade.

Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks.

The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”

But isn’t it illegal for the federal government to intercept our phone calls?

Well, the cold, hard reality of the matter is that they use all kinds of loopholes and legal technicalities to get around that.

For example, if a call is “intercepted” outside of the United States and then routed to a government building inside the United States that is considered to be okay.

Of course that is a bunch of nonsense, but that is how they think.

And it is very frightening thing for governments around the world to be able to monitor and track us like this.

Increasingly, governments around the world are using cell phones to hunt down people that they do not like and haul them off to prison. For example, a recent Bloomberg article detailed how the Iranian government is aggressively using cell phones to crack down on dissidents….

The Iranian officers who knocked out Saeid Pourheydar’s four front teeth also enlightened the opposition journalist. Held in Evin Prison for weeks following his arrest early last year for protesting, he says, he learned that he was not only fighting the regime, but also companies that armed Tehran with technology to monitor dissidents like him.

Pourheydar, 30, says the power of this enemy became clear as intelligence officers brandished transcripts of his mobile phone calls, e-mails and text messages during his detention. About half the political prisoners he met in jail told him police had tracked their communications and movements through their cell phones, he says.

Christians in Iran have learned that they must take the batteries entirely out of their cell phones before they gather for home church meetings. If they don’t take the batteries out of their cell phones, there is a good chance that the secret police will show up and drag them off to prison.

Most Americans don’t need to worry about getting hauled off to prison for political or religious reasons at this point, but there is another aspect of cell phone security that could potentially affect all of us.

Most Americans are completely unaware of what stalkers can potentially do if they are able to hack into a cell phone. For example, did you know that spyware can make it possible for a stalker to monitor where you are 24 hours a day and listen to everything that you say even when your cell phone is turned off? The following is from an article posted by WTHR….

Spyware marketers claim you can tap into someone’s calls, read their text messages and track their movements “anywhere, anytime.” They say you can “catch a cheating spouse”, protect your children from an evil babysitter and “hear what your boss is saying about you.” And while you’re spying on others, the Spyware companies say “no one will ever know” because it’s supposed to be “completely invisible” with “absolutely no trace.”

Security experts say it’s no internet hoax.

“It’s real, and it is pretty creepy,” said Rick Mislan, a former military intelligence officer who now teaches cyber forensics at Purdue University’s Department of Computer and Information Technology.

Mislan has examined thousands of cell phones inside Purdue’s Cyber Forensics Lab, and he says spy software can now make even the most high-tech cell phone vulnerable.

For much more from WTHR about what stalkers can do to your cell phone, just check out this amazing video. It is one of the best news reports that I have ever seen.

Are you starting to see how your cell phone makes you a prisoner of a digital world?

The police can listen to you and track you any time that they want to.

The federal government can listen to you and track you any time that they want to.

Big corporations can buy all of the personal information that cell phones gather any time that they want to from certain cell phone companies.

Stalkers can listen to you and track you 24 hours a day if they are able to hack in to your cell phone somehow.

If you own a cell phone and you still want to have some privacy, then you need to take the battery completely out of the cell phone when you are not using it.

Our world is becoming a much less private place, and we all need to be mindful of the changes that are happening.

Unfortunately, as our world becomes even more interconnected and even more dependent on technology, the amount of privacy we all have is likely to continue to decrease. A digital Big Brother control grid is being constructed all around us, and in the future that control grid could potentially be used for very malevolent purposes.

So let us be as wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Our world is changing, and not for the better.

Maxx J Frankel do you know what a primary source is?
Daniel J Towsey Maxx..do you know..what critical thinking is?
Do you know to seek truth?
Do you know about protecting sources?
Maxx J Frankel Yeah i was doing some critical thinking when i looked up the latin and hebrew word for truth and realized they don’t start with T.
Why spread bullshit if you are supposed to spread truth.

You know that what you do carries tremendous responsibility yet you are so sloppy.
You are going to lose all the people you need to persuade to make a change with that strategy, and get all the people you really could do without.

yeah im a internet troll hired by the nwo to take you down because you are a “free thinker” thats why i gave you that advice.

If i really was a troll i would say:

keep calling people sheeple… it works wonders on get them to listen to what you have to say. Also using the words evil, occult, matrix, conspiracy,
they will get tons of people to follow your movement.

come on son.

there are other ways from protecting your sources and still showing evidence than just saying some bullshit and making it look like you did not do any
research except look at some other crazy dudes paranoid fantasies.
Daniel J Towsey Hey Max…Did you notice I am not writing in Latin or Hebrew?
Maxx J Frankel “Jesus was a Truth Soldier..ever notice that his cross is a t for truth? because God is the truth.”

My statement was in response to this bullshit.

Are you telling me the Romans got together and said… “hey.. we should start killing people on crucifixes because someday,
hundreds and hundreds of years from now, the first letter of the word “truth” in English will look like the pieces of wood we will put
together to nail and suffocate people we don’t like…

and one day one of those people will be the messiah, born of a virgin mother, only to be slain by us,
the people he wishes to grant the graces of God… Why yes, that is a great idea.”

my point is you are making comparisons that dont exist. If Christ did exist as legend has it, he was a person who fought for the poor, and the sick,
was a man of peace, justice and virtue. And he would have been a lot better of convincing me anything you are trying to say, even though there is some of it
I probably do already agree with.

You ask a lot of questions and give few answers.
Maxx J Frankel Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or
evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.
In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, *accuracy*, precision, consistency,
relevance, **sound evidence***, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.

“I am not guessing here. I know this is done from reading court transcripts from intelligence trials.”

^ hook a brother up with copies of those transcripts. that would be the primary sources im looking for, and you dont have to protect anyone.
Maxx J Frankel oh yeah, that definition came from the Foundation for Critical Thinking

that would have been silly of me to post something like that with out including a source, after making such a big fuss about you not showing sources.
Daniel J Towsey So go do some critical thinking..go to TheTruthSoldiersClub and go look in the ‘Invassion of privacy’ folder
then go read all the evedence about cell phones.. If I remember correctly..I mentioned that in my article..

Since you know what critical thinking is..do some..
Maxx J Frankel cant even hook a brother up with a link
Maxx J Frankel okay after creating a yahoo account, joining the group.. and finding Invasion of Privacy.. which one are you talking about that is the primary
document you used to come to this conclusion.
Maxx J Frankel this is what someone who isn’t a dick does when trying to get the truth out:

Daniel J Towsey Max first of all a primary link is not possiblee as you have to be a member to access the the link.

Second you have shown me that you can not do critical thinking…

You want me to spoon fed everything to you..

Will go do some reading and while your reading you will discover even more about cell phones then what I wrote.

I wrote the above article long before it was known to most..

So for a critical thinker I am amazed you could not do a simple search online.

Daniel J Towsey Maxx your the dick..I have been polite with you and you just attack me with your shit mouth…

Maxx J Frankel http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/01/08/apple_files_patent_for_camera_hidden_behind_display.html

some of the other things i read were nonsense.

I did not find court cases today. maybe tomorrow i will.

Maxx J Frankel yeah im from nyc, we have attitude. you haven’t been all that polite either. just because you dont say the words “bullshit”, or “dick”,
does not mean you weren’t being a snobbish dick to me.

Daniel J Towsey Maxx the original court case is why all this information is now out..The court case was about eight years ago..that information will be hard
to find but it is no longer necessary..

Plus there somewhere info about Bush making it mandatory by law that all new cells phones be equipped with this option when the cell phones went from
analogue to digital in 2001

Maxx J Frankel yes i wanted everything spoon feed… why the hell do i have to look up your sources? you have them right on your computer, you could
have just sent them over. but no, i had to create another email, then use a system i am completely alien to, to find some files that I still have not had the
patience to find.

Could you please show me the mandatory law that new phones have to have this option, so when people ask me about this i can have evidence for what i am
talking about, and not sound like a lunatic.

Daniel J Towsey hey by the way ..our thread of responses will be included as comments with all my future postings of this article..So hey you will be read by
many more over the years..

Maxx J Frankel awesome I am a celebrity. www.Reverbnation.com/maxxscian

Daniel J Towsey anyway..thanks for the comments..a little bit of attitude is good..it means were not pussies..so you have my respect..

Lets keep the battle going to defeat the insane Zionist NWO..

Maxx J Frankel You do realize this whole argument has more to do with you improving how you spread information than it does anything else right? If you want
people to believe you off the bat, instead of wasting their time and your time looking for sources… just put the sources in there.

and there were no sources for you to protect any of that time so why were you asking me if i knew anything about protecting sources.. you made yourself sound
really important there though… that was pretty bad ass.

Maxx J Frankel lol werd up

Maxx J Frankel man you lose me with the Zionist thing but whatever lets agree to disagree on somethings.

Daniel J Towsey Hey I am just checking out your site..I love hip hop…when I can understand the words that ius..hahaha

Maxx J Frankel thats why my music doesn’t really have words most of the time.. i mainly make beats. thanks for checking it out.

^ if you feel like adding my facebook page theres the link for that

peace, keep doing what you do, keep refining your message, it makes the reality easier to share.

however be careful

Daniel J Towsey haha yes if we always agreed we would be pussies..hey man yes Zionism is very real and it really has little to do with Jews..anyone can be a Zionist..
But the real enemies are the international banksters….trying to own the world..

Daniel J Towsey I really like ‘Immortal technique”

Maxx J Frankel yeah he has been popular among people in the truth movement.

Maxx J Frankel you might like Dead Prez too if you like him.

Daniel J Towsey We I am listening to you stuff..It is pretty good so far…oh here comes the next song..

Daniel J Towsey hey you must play at clubs..your stuff sounds great

Maxx J Frankel thanks. im working on doing a 2011 circuit of NYC.

Maxx J Frankel maybe i will make it up to Quebec sometime this year. No one has heard about me up there though lol

Maxx J Frankel oh you are in nova scotia according to your profile now… even less people know about me over there hahah

Daniel J Towsey Montreal will love you..I am from there but I now live in deadville Nova Scotia..I am thinking of moving back to Montreal..where the ladies are really fineeeee

The women there are some of the most gorgeous women I have ever seen.

Daniel J Towsey Most people in Nova Scotia know nothing… I am a revolutionary here..

Maxx J Frankel i bet they know how to fish and a lot about boats.

Daniel J Towsey yeah thats about all they know..

Daniel J Towsey Man your music has got life….wow i have allot of great sound systems in my place.. My main stereo is like concert speakers..I love music..
I have your tunes playing kind of loud it is 6 am . I guess I will wake some neighbors.. They think twice about banging on my ceiling..

Maxx J Frankel thanks. you can down load my first album for free at maxxscian.bandcamp.com

Maxx J Frankel i appreciate the compliments!

Daniel J Towsey Hey I appreciate great creative sounds

Daniel J Towsey Hey Maxx..you know my passion is photography.. you have my permission to use any image you like ..you can download the hi-res pictures at

http://thevisonaryfolkphotograher.com/ I have allot more pics then this..

Maxx J Frankel cool, then you are going to like that first album a lot. its a concept album about post 9/11 american, set in new york city…
it is mainly instrumental, but features skits from real life that i recorded on a field recorder between 2007 and 2008.

heres the album description:

“Come Wander With Me” is a multi-genre album that harnesses the anxious emotions of New York City post 9/11/2001. Maxx Scian’s off-beat eclectic arrangements
blended with live recordings of organic “only-could-have-been-heard-in-New-York-City” experiences, resonate the sounds of the decade; one defined by insecurity,
confusion, and its absence of a concrete identity.”

Sweet photos.. i will check them all out tomorrow, i need to go to bed, its 5 am in nyc. It was good chatting with you Daniel. Good Night.

Miguel Urbina Artful trolling, to be sure. It really is exquisite.

Maxx J Frankel lol i was helping a dude post his sources, telling him the benefits of why you should do that in the first place instead of after arguments, and show him
he might encounter conflicts in the future, thus improving his message.. if that is trolling then bless the people who do that.

and in the end we became friends :D

Spencer D. Marks I think that that was about the happiest ending to an internet gunfight that the world has ever seen.

That was amazing! Serious kudos to both of you! :)

Daniel J Towsey says, Spencer if only all other serious world political issues could end this way.

.we would have what I seek and that is PEACE ON EARTH FOR ALL (Jan 6 2011)

North Oregon Coast Anti-Chemtrail Alliance Good stuff! Thanks, Daniel.


Thank you for this very useful infomation..I was not aware of this crap…clearly another way to invade our privacy!

hilly7 has posted a reply to the topic “Cell Phones – All Truth Soldiers Need to know this.” you replied to in the forum “Basic Human Rights”:

“Well I didn’t read all of this, I do know that the Active Denial System is microwave technology.

You don’t have to be in a “space suit”,
just not in the direct path of the beam. As for the original post, who knows.

We know exactly what we are told, and that is about it, so I will not say none of this is incorrect.
The shadow government is bigger than we have a clue about, just as it was in Nazi Germany.

What I will say is that the nazification of our country sucks.
Now I really don’t care if they read this or hear this, just so long as they know this. ”

RESONANCE – BEINGS OF FREQUENCY from james russell on Vimeo.

from james russell


RESONANCE is a sensational eye opening documentary which reveals the harm we are doing by existing in an ocean of man made wireless frequencies.

Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved,

it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in.

By the time mankind arrived on earth an incredible relationship had been struck; a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend.

Research is showing that being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health,

it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of wellbeing.

Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are filled with them too. Our cells communicate using electro magnetic frequencies.

Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions, using frequency waves.

Without them we couldn’t exist for more than a second.

This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last 25 years the harmony has been disturbed. and disturbed dramatically.

Mankind has submerged itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and drowning out the earth’s natural resonance.

To the naked eye the planet appears to be the same. But at a cellular level it is the biggest change that life on earth has endured;

the affects of which we are just starting to see and feel.

How Cellphone Companies Have Resisted Rules for Disasters

Cora Currier, News Report:

In a natural disaster or other emergency, one of the first things you’re likely to reach for is your cellphone. Landlines are disappearing. More than 30 percent of American households now rely exclusively on cellphones.

Despite that, cell carriers have successfully pushed back against rules on what they have to do in a disaster. The carriers instead insist that emergency standards should be voluntary, an approach the Federal Communications Commission has gone along with.

After Hurricane Katrina, for instance, carriers successfully opposed a federal rule that would have required them to have 24-hours of backup power on cell towers. In another instance, an FCC program to track crucial information during an emergency — such as which areas are down and the status of efforts to bring the network back — remainsentirely voluntary. Nor is the information collected made public.

After Sandy, when thousands roamed the streets looking for service, many had no idea where they could get a signal. AT&T and Sprint, among the major carriers, didn’t initially release details on what portion of their network was down.

The emergency issue has been part of a trend in deregulation of the telecommunications industry. Since 2010, more than 20 states have passed laws limiting their regulation of telecoms.

“The FCC is very concerned about the nature of their overall authority and whether rules would survive a court challenge,” says Harold Feld, senior vice president of Public Knowledge, a technology advocacy nonprofit. “So their approach is to push and nudge and come up with things that would be more acceptable to the industry.”

“Traditional carriers had reliability requirements, and reporting requirements,” says Susan Crawford, a visiting professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a former technology adviser to President Obama. “We treat wireless and broadband much differently.”

An FCC spokesperson declined to comment on emergency planning issues beyond pointing to field hearings announced last week, to study the response by networks to Hurricane Sandy and other recent disasters.

Katrina also generated concern over emergency communications plans, but did not lead to binding rules. Instead, the FCC advised that the industry work with them to create emergency preparations checklists — voluntary best practices, rather than requirements.

The FCC’s voluntary Disaster Information Reporting System was also created in the wake of Katrina. The agency does not say which carriers are participating in the system, and says it can’t release the data that is reported because it is considered “sensitive, for national security and/or commercial reasons.” The FCC also hasn’t determined to what extent it can share information with state and local governments.

Carriers “actively report” to the database, and also work with the Department of Homeland Security during emergencies, according to Chris Guttman-McCabe, vice-president of regulatory affairs at CTIA-The Wireless Association, an industry group. “It’s clearly a balance,” he says, between “working with the government on getting information to them” and “trying to stand up the networks.”

Others argue that a voluntary system isn’t enough to inform the public or hold companies accountable. “When it’s voluntary, what are the expectations about the accuracy of information?” Feld says. “It’s a whole other thing to have to give a serious, mandatory assessment to a federal agency.”

Another instance where a voluntary initiative met pushback from carriers is a new system of Wireless Emergency Alerts, beamed out from cell towers in a disaster area to anyone with a capable phone within reach. Most carriers are participating, graduallyphasing in new phones with the ability to receive WEAs.

But the carriers resisted recommendations that they should be able to target the alerts more precisely, and not just to county-level.

First responders in Western states in particular, where counties can be enormous, would like the ability to issue more local warnings, according to Art Botterell and Lorin Bristow, both emergency planning experts. Botterell also noted that cities could benefit from the ability to blast messages to a radius of just a few blocks, citing New York City’s 2007 steam pipe explosion. “Worrying about lighting up the whole county creates a disincentive to use it at all,” says Botterell.

The industry had argued that not all carriers had the technological capability to offer that kind of precise targeting. The Telecommunications Industry Association wrote that “geotargeting rules that are more stringent” than county-level could “stifle innovation, delay the roll-out [of the program] and reduce voluntary participation.” (Some carriers are now working with local officials to offer more flexible targeting, according to Bristow.)

Carriers have long argued along these lines — that disasters each present unique scenarios and that companies need to stay flexible as technologies change. The carriers say it is in their best interest to keep networks running, and point to the quick deployment of portable towers after Sandy and examples like AT&T and T-Mobileallowing customers to roam between networks.

Feld, of Public Knowledge, says that the “technological flexibility argument is true, but it’s not a show-stopper. We have to balance flexibility against the need to have real emergency planning.”

The Forgotten Cambodia

The Forgotten Cambodia

Every month in Cambodia 200 people lose limbs due to mines. And are left crippled, suffering and unable to work or enjoy life. Countless others die.

Cambodia is in complete poverty. Its rice industry was destroyed by the Americans using Agent Orange. Plus all the fields are full of mines and un exploded bombs. Lets not forget all those that have died or have illnesses caused by agent orange.

Cambodia is basically a swamp, which was ideal for growing rice. Now Cambodia does not have anyway of using its land for food or anything else.

Cambodians are trapped in poverty. They can never come out of it. Cambodians do not even have the resources necessary to leave.

Cambodia has been permanently destroyed.

It is a forgotten land. As usual, American media would rather forget than remember what America has done to this country and its people.

Stolen Innocence – Cambodia


Uploaded on 21 Sep 2007

Sep 2002
Shocking and heart-rending secret footage takes us into the heart of Cambodia’s child sex trade. We see girls as young as ten offered for sex, and uncover a web of corruption that shows little remorse.

Chanting ‘yum yum’, the slang for oral sex, girls clamour for attention in a back streets brothel. They are ten years old. “Cambodian men believe that having sex with virgins boosts their sexual appetite, their strength, their integrity,” explains Mu Sochua, Minister for Women’s Affairs. Sunremita was tricked by her mother into prostitution to make money for her sick relatives. But the proliferation of child prostitutes is down to more than just poverty — rife corruption also compounds the problem. In Svey Pak, police storm a brothel. A few girls are collected, but pimps and owners are left in peace. “For every single hour that [the brothels] operate the police are paid to let them,” states Sochua. Even when paedophiles are arrested, it seems easy to escape justice. Photos of padlocks locked around the genitals of a 13-year old boy clearly show sexual abuse. But the French national accused walked away from court free, despite photos and the testimony of ten boys. Pol Pot tried deliberately to destroy the family; greed and corruption will hopefully not finish the job.

Of Crazies, Neocons and the Enemy Within

Of Crazies, Neocons and the Enemy Within

By Manuel Valenzuela


06/13/07 “ICH” — — An all too familiar and ominous echo is reverberating through the American landscape, once more blasted into the airwaves, and our minds, through the Ministry of Propaganda and its merry bunch of sycophants and stenographers.  For yet another consecutive year since three monolithic towers were demolished, imploded and systemically brought down onto their own footprints in a catalyzing event unleashing a new American century, Americans are hearing the fiery rhetoric of imminent danger, a cocktail of fear, terror and warmongering fed our enemy-addicted culture, aimed both at stirring conflict with Iran and conditioning our minds into accepting the coming attack on yet another Muslim nation that poses no threat to the mighty Empire. 

For the Enemy Within is hard at work concocting the trigger-happy bogeyman Americans are always too eager to declare war upon, and they are working overtime, using their control of the print, radio and television media, to condition us into accepting their version of reality. Yes, the dreaded neocons are once more circling this nation like vultures, flying high above the dying carcass of freedom and democracy, ready to plunge down to Earth for a mighty feast.  The reviled neocons, that plague that refuses to die, that pestilence that seemingly only increases in number, that nest of rats that lingers in our midst, is once more contorting truth and creating reality, once more beating the drums of war in continuation of their war song.  The Enemy Within is softening us up, readying our minds, preparing us into accepting yet one more blitzkrieg of evil, criminality and mass murder.

If you are not disgusted at how this species of human being has hijacked America, how it has condemned a million people to their premature death, how it has turned the beacon of freedom into the gulag of criminality, how it has made mass murder, torture, rape and pillage acceptable, how it has made an entire nation hateful, xenophobic and jingoistic, how it has molded and conditioned an army of American authoritarians, then you have not been paying attention.  If you are not reviled at the existence of this nest of cockroaches, and how, even after all the damage it has done to America and the Middle East it nonetheless remains alive and thriving, seemingly – and bewilderingly – given prominence, authority and visibility in the media, in spite of its perpetual stream of lies, incompetence and subversion of freedom, in spite of getting everything about Iraq wrong, then you have not understood the real and severe threat of the neocon element to America, and the world.

Deeply entrenched within the corridors of power, infesting the Department of War, the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Congress and the White House, and firmly, and clandestinely, embedded throughout the corporatist media, the Enemy Within, it can safely be said, has hijacked America, taking her hostage, occupying her capital, unleashing an incessant barrage of psychological warfare against the American people. Neocon nests, those putrid think tanks and lobbying offices where delusion and deception thrive, are clustered throughout Washington, having acronyms all too familiar to those still living in truth and reality. 

The neocon infrastructure is powerful and massive, financed by moneyed and influential people, supported by modern day little Sparta, that American financed welfare state, that encircled Bantustan of imported European Zionists hunkered down among an ocean of native Arabs, possessing all necessary machinations to concoct enemies, the deceptions to create and unleash wars, the scruples to divide and conquer, and the media tools to brainwash and condition millions of human beings.  The neocon machine prevents truth from ever seeing light, reality from ever surfacing, debate from ever existing and dissidents from ever having a voice. Instead, the neocon big lie is allowed to be repeated countless times, their deceptions and distortions are granted the aura of reality, and their propaganda is allowed to thrive, and spread. 

The card carrying member of the neocon community has instant access to the airwaves, to op-ed articles and editorial opinion.  The neocon talking points grace front page headlines and the opinions of news anchors and reporters.  These same talking points are given preeminence and are never questioned or challenged.  Neocon talking heads, representatives, hacks and lackeys have an always open invitation, in spite of the disaster they have created for America in Iraq, to appear on television news shows to spew their venomous rhetoric and talking points.  Neocons are sent in droves, upon commands from on high, to appear in the always friendly corporatist media, as always spewing lies and deceptions when propaganda needs to be delivered, when fear needs to grow or when hatred needs to find new hosts. 

Staying on message, the big lie is repeated over and over by this army of manipulators, attacking the airwaves, and thus our brains, in a constant stream of appearances, offering a multitude of faces, and voice tones. Treated as experts and opinion makers, when in fact they are but ignorant, ideological and delusional Machiavelli’s, this legion of propagandists is given free rein to saturate both televised and written media with their talking points. They appear as “guests” on news shows, making the rounds, regurgitating the message their group wants disseminated, never being challenged, always having a loudspeaker from which to reach the citizenry.

Without merit, these operatives are placed as opinion writers, reporters and editors in America’s most influential magazines and newspapers, free to manipulate and condition the minds of readers, free to shift the nation’s discourse in a particular direction.  Hired and promoted, even after being wrong or delusional about nearly everything they have ever said or written about, these enemies of the people are nonetheless still given a voice and a bully pulpit from where to manipulate millions of readers. 

Even when one thinks the neocons have been discredited thanks to the myriad number of pathetic mistakes they have made, even when one thinks their opinions have made them clowns, even when they are the laughingstock to those aware of their incompetence and delusion, they are still prominently displayed on our monitors, magazines and newspapers.  Somehow, after so many errors, after so many disasters, they still remain to unleash more damage, shaping the nation’s opinion, setting its direction, pushing policy and as always, steering the nation towards war.  This reality has not changed since 9/11, which should be a clear indication that the corporatist media is a full collaborator and partner in the neocon agenda.  The Enemy Within is deeply entrenched in the corporatist media, and this should never be forgotten. 


Using the same recipe that launched the false Iraq WMD fear and terror marketing campaign, the same audacity that gave birth to the official and highly fictional 9/11 conspiracy theory, recycling the same cast of neocon characters for years warning us of the imminent and perpetual Arab danger, the warmongers in power are slowly, yet surely, prepping the American people into accepting a new act of preemptive, and illegal, aggression.  For the Enemy Within knows that the American people will voluntarily remain ignorant of whatever enemy is chosen for them, never wanting to use reason and logic and critical thinking or common sense, always believing the lies and deceptions of the state and its vast propaganda machine, always eager to believe the myths and fictions spouted by criminals and murderers.  Indeed, manipulating the American mind is like taking candy from a baby.  At no time has the American mind been more fragile, ignorant and ripe for the picking.

Under ceaseless assault since the false flag operation of 9/11, the collective American mind is in deep psychosis, unable to escape the cloud of fear and terror thrust upon us by the neocon cabal in power.  The catalyzing event of 9/11, methodically executed by warmongers and crazed zealots, was orchestrated with the intent of birthing a new American century, one in which the Pax Americana would thrive, unparalleled in power, reigning as the new Rome, unrivaled among the brotherhood of nations.  It would merge the interests of little apartheid Sparta with those of America, forever cementing ties born through deception, for now the American people would also be confronted with the “evildoer” Arab horde, conveniently having as new enemy the same peoples whose oil we coveted and were addicted to, the same peoples whom little apartheid Sparta hated and detested.  

The inside job of 9/11 would unleash a Long War, the so-called War on Terror, as much a fictional fantasy as any war concocted by Hollywood.  Without the dreaded Soviet to scapegoat, to distract from internal strife, to use as excuse to enrich the military-industrial complex, a new enemy had to be manufactured, one that, unlike the Soviet Communist, was ambiguous, hidden, alien, an enigma, free of borders, national constraints and political handcuffs.  Free to create any enemy out of thin air, the marketers of fear, for that is what the creators of enemies are, decided that the American populace needed a bogeyman unlike any ever devised, one free to roam beyond borders, lurking in dark alleys, independent of a nation that could, just like the Soviet Union, dissolve due to internal incompetence or political strife. 

While the Soviet enemy remained known, even familiar to average Americans through European-like skin color and facial features, an appearance that seemed close to home, its culture and ethnicity unable to be dehumanized and made sub-human by the state’s propagandists, both essential elements in conditioning the populace into accepting destruction and murder of the enemy, the newly minted enemy, the Arab bogeyman, faced no such obstacles.  Indeed, years of conditioning by Hollywood vilifying Arabs had jumpstarted the American hatred of the Islamic culture, even before 9/11, planting the seeds of hatred and xenophobia that would fully sprout on the day catalyzing events unleashed a new American century and Americans were introduced to the dreaded Arab terrorist.

The dreaded Arab bogeyman, concocted as terrorist through years of state sponsored propaganda and manipulation, only fed into the historical hatred of people of color by xenophobic majorities.  The decimation of tens of millions of Native Americans, their condemnation into hellholes called reservations, the prolonged enslavement of Africans, the decimation of Filipinos, Koreans and Vietnamese in Asia, the wars of aggression and senseless mass murder against Latin Americans spanning decades, the still prevalent racism against African Americans and Latinos, condemning most to lifelong imprisonment and abandonment in urban ghettos, and the recent jingoism and bigotry exhibited against Hispanic immigrants – nothing more than America’s new slave class – by a new generation of No Nothings are but a few examples of a time honored tradition of indifference, racism and hatred of peoples not possessing the characteristics of European lineage, of white Anglo-Saxon tradition.  The Arab culture, then, would be treated no different.

A new scapegoat had been chosen, one alien and fear-inducing, for fear of the unknown is the greatest fear in the human condition.  All that was needed to foment the fusion of alien dark skinned Arab with terrorism in the minds of the people would be a catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor, that would cement a hatred and anger never before seen on American shores, one that would blind and make fearful entire segments of the population.  Of course the chosen patsies would perform the tasks assigned to them, oblivious to the eternal fame they would garner.  Molded and nurtured, observed and guided, these patsies would become the face of evil incarnate, with the modern day Emmanuel Goldstein, Osama bin Laden, striking fear and terror in the minds of Americans. 

It would be the events of 9/11 that would firmly, and permanently, transfix Al-Qaeda into the imaginations of 300 million Americans, striking fear and a Pavlovian induced schizophrenia into the populace with every pronouncement of its title. Blinded by fear, made devoid of reason and logic through the manipulations of terror, the American people would follow lies and deceptions without question; they would obey and become subservient to the dictates of the neocon ideology; they would take as truth and reality the fictions and charades offered by the state and the corporatist media. 

It would be 9/11 that would forever alter the course of American history, along with the psyches of her people, becoming an untouchable, almost religious myth whose original story was sacrosanct, an untouchable story no matter how unrealistic it was. Of course, 9/11 became a most fortuitous event to several entities, benefiting, first and foremost, the military-industrial-energy complex, desperately in search of an enemy and a region to exploit, as well as those seeking American hegemony around the globe, and fitting perfectly with the master plans of the Likudnik neocons and their Project for a New American Century. Thanks to 9/11, America had her new enemy, one evolved to suit the best interests of America’s warmongering class, one designed as a failsafe entity that could be counted on, in relative confidence, for a perpetual stream of conflict, war, destruction, hegemony, profit and power.

Al-Qaeda, born and reared by America’s clandestine services, having evolved from Afghan freedom fighters battling the Soviet Union to evil incarnate after 9/11, a product of ceaseless marketing and constant manipulation of fragile and vulnerable psyches, would be the face of America’s new enemy, one without borders, politicians, standing armies and capitals, a bogeyman hidden and secretive, free to appear anywhere on the planet, alien and ambiguous, a mole popping up exactly where it was, and is, needed most. In short, al-Qaeda is the perfect enemy for America, capable of sprouting like a weed wherever and whenever America needed a place to attack, invade, conquer and pillage. Used as the perfect excuse by which to attack sovereign nations, labeling fighters or insurgents Al-Qaeda acts both as cover for the advancement of Empire and as the marketing ploy used to smear and label legitimate peoples’ movements fighting the criminality of the Empire itself.

When marketed to the American people by the propaganda of the state and the corporatist media, resistance fighters such as those in Iraq struggling to rid their lands and homes of the imperial overreach of the Empire become sub-human enemies whose death is accepted and indeed sought by the citizenry. When the Pavlovian term “Al-Qaeda” is ushered, all semblance of common sense and reason is lost upon the populace of the Empire, who has been trained to fear and hate when the utterance of the evildoers is mentioned. Designed to dehumanize valid resistance and freedom movements, the people of the Empire will thus only see terrorists and criminality when reality offers a different portrait. Such is the power of the label Al-Qaeda that it immediately makes terrorists of those fighting the evil and terrorism of the Empire itself.  It validates and indeed obscures the high levels of state sponsored terrorism of the Empire. Such is the genius of those who concoct enemies for a living.

Make no mistake, 9/11 was a declaration of war upon the American people by the Enemy Within, acting as the first strike in a psychological war aimed at our emotions.  A new Pearl Harbor was needed to unleash invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan and eventually Iran, opening up new imperial hegemony.  Freedoms and rights had to be eviscerated, the better to control the citizenry, the better to take advantage of technological innovations that would facilitate an omnipresent police state. Solidarity with little Sparta had to be increased, both to take worldwide pressure off its Nazi like treatment of Palestinians and to join at the hip two nations that were now seen to fight the same fight.  Only two powers could dominate the Middle East, and with America establishing a permanent presence, with its military fomenting civil war between the region’s Sunni and Shia, following the old adage of divide and conquer, little Sparta could become the preeminent power in the region, its rivals destroyed and weakened, its threats curtailed and its hegemony growing.

Carefully planned and orchestrated, 9/11 and its myth, most of which was disseminated in the hours after the tragic events, with pieces of the still smoldering puzzle miraculously being put together at the speed of light, was designed as the new Pearl Harbor needed to militarize the citizenry into supporting the invasions and occupations of Middle East nations. In that sense, 9/11 was an event staged specifically to manipulate the emotions and psychology of the American people in the expectation that we would march lock step with the warmongering aspirations of the state.  Its tragedy was calculated more as a shock to the psyche than as an act of war; its horrors were needed to act as conduit between calls for revenge, hatred of the Muslim world, and acquiescence to pre-9/11 invasion plans.

We the People were the targets on that day, not the state and certainly not our elected leaders. It was We the People that were the intended victims, not our freedoms or our way of life, not our happiness nor our comfortable lifestyles. Our minds were the ultimate prize, which is why the towers had to be demolished in such violent fashion, why the controlled demolitions were covered from every conceivable angle, to be played and replayed countless times, until they were seared into our memory, into our psyche, so that we would forever be victims of fear and terror manipulations, so that we would forever acknowledge and assist the military-industrial-energy complex in its quest for global hegemony.

For the neocons, two enormous towers and 3,000 human beings were an easy sacrifice compared to the dividends the Project for the New American Century would get in return.  Two towers in a metropolis full of skyscrapers, along with 3,000 Americans out of 300 million, were simply the collateral damage needed to fulfill Rebuilding America’s Defenses.  Thus, a New Pearl Harbor took place on 9/11, ushering in a new American Century, just as the neocons had predicted, just as they had fortuitously envisioned.  Using the power of the corporatist media and its battalions of propagandists, the psychological war against the American people, with 9/11 as catalyst, was only beginning. 

In the years that followed the manipulation of emotions to extract long-sought rewards and objectives would intensify, as would the subversion of freedoms, rights and liberties in the name of promising security to fragile and maimed American psyches. America’s real enemy, that which resides within, was about to unleash a barrage of fear and terror mongering the likes of which no people have ever encountered, in furtherance of the war against the American people, a war unlike any other, a war for our minds and psychology, against the very freedoms, rights and democracy we so cherish.  For what manufactured terrorists could never take away, homegrown terrorists were slowly, yet surely, making extinct. 

Cabal of Criminality 

Democracy and freedom has never been of much importance to the neocon vultures, even as they spew these virtues as sacred dogma.  Of course, what neocons say, and what they do, are almost always at odds with each other. They are experts at extolling the virtues of the grand lie, of lying pathologically to the people for the people’s supposed own good.  Government secrecy is a hallmark of the neocons, a reality the world has seen since 2001. Keeping secrets and telling a constant stream of lies has defined the neocon administration of George W. Bush. 

It is interesting that while they talk of democracy and freedom, they try to destroy both, abroad and at home.  These vermin stand for Machiavelli-style rule, being comforted more by authoritarian governance than pure democracy.  Indeed, democracy is anathema to their ideology, for they do not believe the masses can correctly govern themselves.  Therefore, leaders possessing dictatorial powers must be created, the better to serve the interests of the neocon belief system.  In fact, the stolen election of 2000, in the state of Florida, was a direct consequence of neocon planning and implementation, the first domino to fall in pursuit of their new American century.  The ascension of Bush to the throne, a man who had promised them Iraq on a silver platter if elected, was of paramount importance.  He was also a willing participant and firm believer in Rebuilding America’s Defenses. Once immediately safely selected to the throne, in fact, he began implementing its highly militarized and unilateral policies. 

Knowing the final outcome, and triumph, of the 2000 election would inevitably come down to Florida, all machinations needed to steal the election were implemented, showcasing a disregard for the will of the people and democracy in pursuit of absolute power.  Florida 2000 was the catalyst the neocons needed to begin altering the face of American governance and her role in the world.  Everything that was to come hinged on the election in Florida, hence the audacity and the purposefulness seen in completely subverting American democracy.  One day, it will be Florida 2000, along with 9/11, that will be studied, analyzed and seen for the history altering event that it was, becoming recognized as the first salvo in a war against the American people, the key that unlocked the gates of Hades upon the world.  Without Florida 2000, history, and 21st century reality, would have perhaps never become familiar with the neocons and their demented and delusional ideology.

Thrust into power in 2001, an administration saturated with neocons in the Departments of War, Justice, State and the White House set about to alter the system of checks and balances and to begin implementing, step by militarized step, the blueprint called Rebuilding America’s Defenses.  Once deeply ensconced inside the halls of power, once comfortable with the methods and systems of governance, once confident in their control and mastery over the state’s apparatus, once they had fully hijacked the government of the United States of America, they could finally implement the catalyzing event they so desperately wanted, and needed. 

With their dirty and criminal hands at the helm of every strategic department and office, especially within the Department of War and the Office of the Vice President, a new Pearl Harbor was ready to be born, conceived through distracting war games and drills, allowed to breathe life through systematic planning and confusion.  Possessing absolute power, becoming the hand guiding the American puppet, with the corporatist media as collaborators, the cabal of criminality declared war upon every American. On September 11, 2001, America’s worst and most heinous crime was perpetrated, along with her greatest criminal cover up. The 9/11 Commission Report would only cement the cover up, with yet one more neocon assigned to make sure a whitewash occurred. 

After 9/11 the nest of vultures embedded in the Pentagon and the Office of the Vice President began manufacturing war, first in Afghanistan and later, much more famously, in Iraq.  Today it is widely known the severity by which the Office of Special Plans manufactured and devised the lies that led to war, piping only information that would push the neocon agenda directly to the top, thereby bypassing career analysts and experts.  Today it is widely known the lies told repeatedly to guide us into war, with warnings of mushroom clouds and WMD.  That the neocon establishment led us into a war of choice, based on lies, deceptions and delusions, is not in question. Indeed, these architects of the Iraq War should never be allowed to forget that they involved America in the greatest strategic disaster in her history.

That the neocon establishment lied us into an immoral and illegal preemptive war, based on lies and fictions they knew to be false, in order to secure Empire’s petroleum and beachhead, not to mention Israel’s security, demands that these individuals be seen for what they really are: war criminals, surely guilty of crimes against humanity, fully responsible for the death of one million Iraqis, thousands of Afghanis, and 6,500 Americans.  War criminals tried since World War II have been sentenced to death on far less heinous and egregious crimes. 

To say the neocons should be sitting at The Hague, rotting away their existence, contemplating their crimes in perpetuity, locked away for centuries so they can no longer inflict carnage and evil on our world, is an understatement.  These individuals, this cabal of criminality, those visible and clandestine in government, business and the media, those responsible for 9/11 and the Iraq War, from the architects to the propagandists, should be facing war crime charges in both New York City and Baghdad, forced to face trial for the human wickedness they have engendered. 

In a more perfect world, they would be.  In this world, unfortunately, they are promoted, rewarded, saluted and allowed to ride into the sunset, free to corrupt young minds, continue living in freedom, profiteering from their opinions and wreaking havoc upon the peoples of Earth.  In a more perfect world, one different than the one we presently inhabit, there would be justice for all those murdered and maimed in pursuit of blatant ignorance, psychotic delusion and deranged ideology.  

Project Iran 

Instead, the terrorists living among us, the elements we call neocons, with their vast control of American government and media, and by consequence control over our lives, continue expanding their power and their pursuit of further decadence.  Not content to dwell as history’s greatest fools, they maintain a course of further escalation in Iraq, still thinking possible a victory that will never arrive and a delusion that will never become reality.  Delusion and denial being a neocon characteristic, they think further military action, this time against Iran, will salvage victory from the throes of defeat, giving America the birth pangs of triumph from the calamity of debacle and quagmire.

Enraptured by their longtime hatred of Iran and its supposed threat to Israeli hegemony, the neocon element has once more gone on a fairy tale adventure, this time by trying to get America to do Israel’s bidding.  The same playbook once used to cajole us into the Iraq debacle has been taken out of the closet, wiped free of dust, and implemented throughout the neocon world.  This time, however, the neocon infestation is less prevalent in government, so they must resort to their nests in think tanks and lobbying offices, along with their vast power in the corporatist media, to sell, convince, connive and foment a war between Iran and America.  With so many people in government aware of their constant malfeasance, however, the road to warmonger heaven has been a bit more difficult.

This explains why the corporatist media, doing the bidding of Israeli interests, has become a major player in the Iran propaganda campaign.  Without the Office of Special Plans, with many military personnel aware of the techniques of the “crazies”, with deeper scrutiny by the public and America’s intelligence agencies, and with many officials aware of the consequences of a war with Iran, the neocons have had to bombard the airwaves with the lies, deceptions and manipulations needed to once again bamboozle the Empire into a war of choice.

It is from inside the corporatist media, with help from neocon think tanks and Israeli interests, where the propaganda is in full swing, where neocons are given an open microphone, a camera to look at, and where the interests of the state of Israel are given credence.  It is from the inner doings of the corporatist media where war with Iran is being conditioned into our minds, for the Enemy Within knows it has less than two years left to destroy its hegemonic rival. 

Sensing desperation that Iran has yet to be attacked, thanks in large measure to the disaster unfolding in Iraq, the neocons may yet resort to desperate measures, perhaps even another false flag operation blamed on Al-Qaeda, working for Iran, which would again become a catalyzing event unfolding yet another new Pearl Harbor. When dealing with psychotics of this nature, nothing should be discounted, and nothing should be left to chance. 

As always emanating from the mouths of America’s most vile criminal element and terrorists extraordinaire, better known as the neoconservatives, the false alarms and war trumpets now being heard are part of a careful and methodical campaign of psychological warfare against the American people.  A continuance of the psychological operation launched against America on 9/11, that catalyzing event granting New Pearl Harbors life and a New American Century sustenance, the latest act of manipulation is designed to make evildoers of the Iranian people, turning Iran into a scapegoat for the disaster unfolding in Iraq. 

Such is the debacle in Iraq, created by the delusions, complete ignorance and gross incompetence of the neocons that, since American exceptionalism prevents America from ever making mistakes, being outwitted or admitting defeat, an easy scapegoat must be fomented to take the blame for the greatest strategic disaster in American foreign policy. Enter the puppet Iraq government and Iran, two easy targets offered up as the sacrificial lamb to a perpetually ignorant, delusional and completely devolving populace that would much sooner believe outside forces were to blame for the inevitable defeat than realize that the myths of American grandeur are nothing but the fairy tale propaganda of a corporatist state. 

Almost on a daily basis, this group of terrorists, for no other word can best describe the neocons, is systematically cementing into the American conscious the idea of attacking and bombing Iran, a nation that poses no military threat to America, under the rubric of terrorism, mushroom clouds and Hitler-like evil, thereby extending forward a fictional war on terror along with an already disastrous debacle in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Once more a Muslim nation is about to be attacked, as always following the blueprint of the neocon Mein Kampf, Rebuilding America’s Defenses.  More and more Iran is being blamed for arming the Iraqi – and now Afghan – resistance, training its fighters and financing its activities.  That no proof has yet to appear, even among a barrage of accusations,  should give one pause as to the validity of such asinine propaganda and should leave no doubt in whose hands the corporatist media lies.

For the neocons, a group of Christian and Jewish Zionists, most with strong ties to the Israeli right-wing Likud Party, embedded throughout the halls of governance, business and the corporatist media, hate Persians, Arabs and Muslims with a passion only seen in xenophobic psychopaths.  Their contempt for the peoples of the Middle East has become apparent in their actions and writings, their beliefs and hypocrisy, and in their defense of the Nazi-like treatment of Arabs by apartheid Israel, .  It is this hatred that they hope to embed into America’s citizenry, enough that we think of Arabs as subhuman animals, and is therefore the reason for the saturation of the airwaves with anti-Arab, Persian and Muslim propaganda, designed to engender hatred and feelings of xenophobia against the non-European people of the Middle East. This manipulation, of course, has not relented since the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

These architects of New Pearl Harbors, fictional wars on terror and the Iraq War, names all too familiar within the reality of those who chose to pay attention and stay informed, have set their targets on another Islamic nation, now that Iraq is in disarray, as always pursuing the interests both of the so-called New American Century as well as those of Mother Israel.  On both sides of the imaginary and nonexistent aisle, inside the bowels of political duopoly and the two headed hydra, where political prostitutes are allowed to roam free, as always paying homage to the hand that rocks the cradle, the shrieks of war are therefore getting louder, for the sugar daddy to Washington’s politicians has arrived to collect on dues and debt once paid.

From these charlatans and miscreants we somehow always chose to elect the war cries and the drums of war are growing in strength, for the time of preemptive criminality is almost upon us. For they have been given their marching orders from on high, where the high priests of war convene, where criminals and murderers congregate, and slowly their cohorts in the media are conditioning America to the inevitability of continuing war crimes and crimes upon humanity on Muslim lands. 

Iran has been selected for destruction, becoming the prize of prizes, the ultimate reward in pursuit of a Project for a New American Century. The cries desperate for an attack on Iran are palpable, coming from all neocon nests and perching trees.  The call to use nuclear weapons against the Persian state is also resounding loudly, becoming both an ominous declaration of neocon intentions and a warning to the world entire of ignoring and not halting the delusional cries of the crazies.

As expected, and predicted, the delusional Machiavelli’s we know as the neocons have  increased their level of vitriol against Iran, in conjunction both with the coordinated propaganda campaign begun by their masters in Tel Aviv as well as through the perpetual dissemination of such manipulations by their stenographers and lackeys in the corporatist media. For the days are fast approaching, and all preparations must be made, before those living in delusion unleash their latest, and greatest, military blunder.  

Ending the Occupation of America 

We in America must be vigilant, for a poisonous snake cornered is at its most dangerous.  Time is running out on the neocon element, which, sensing desperation, and the ticking sound of time, might resort to reenacting its greatest triumph, the manufacturing of new Pearl Harbors on American soil, sacrificing American lives in pursuit of Israeli interests, making thousands of citizens the collateral damage needed to attack Iran. 

The Enemy Within lives among us, occupying our capital, owning our elected officials, saturating our airwaves, manipulating our minds, polluting our society. The Enemy Within is the only entity we must fear, for it is psychotic and delusional, criminal and devoid of scruples, ready at a moment’s notice to kill in the name of a new American Century, in the name of A Clean Break. The Enemy Within is our greatest threat, both to life and freedom, to limb and democracy, lingering in our midst, two faced and corrupt, pursuing the interests of militarization and those of little Sparta, trying to ensure hegemony for the Zionist ghetto, trying to establish proxy wars fought by the Empire in the interests of the dog’s tail. 

The Enemy Within is the terrorist organization we must fear most, and fight against, declaring our own war on terror, our own fight against extremism and criminality.  Our nation has been hijacked, dispossessed of its reputation and its treasure, her sons and daughters dying in the interests of corporatism and Empire, maimed due to delusion and ego.  America lives under occupation, our freedoms and rights and liberties being made extinct by Machiavelli pretenders.  A welfare state in the Middle East controls our elected officials, dictating policy that directly contradicts our own interests. 

We are being transformed by the tools of the neocon element into a nation of xenophobic bigots, slowly being bred to hate scapegoats and concocted enemies.  Our corporatist media has become the Department of Propaganda, a Ministry of Truth where reality is manufactured and truth sequestered, hidden in the deep dark recesses of censured stories and stifled dissent.  Only the propaganda beneficial to the Enemy Within is allowed to grace our monitors and our newspapers; only the stories and individuals pushing for war are ever seen or heard. America is occupied, her capital hijacked by a malevolent cabal of criminality, caring only to perpetuate a war against the Arab world through action and reaction, eye for an eye, and inevitable blowback. 

It is up to Americans, in valid resistance to authoritarian tendencies, to stop the crazies from unleashing hell on Iran and the Middle East.  It is up to us to stop them before another Pearl Harbor strikes one of our cities, killing hundreds or thousands of our brothers and sisters.  It is up to us, true patriots of the republic, to finally expel the occupiers from our land, thereby restoring a nation that has much to offer the world, perhaps finally becoming a beacon of light upon a city on a hill, surpassing even the myths of American state-sponsored propaganda.  The real war on terror must begin, for the neocon terrorists must be thrown in the gulag they have created for the world.

If you are repulsed with the neocon plague afflicting our country, if you are tired of the warmongering and the manipulations, of the lies and profiteering, of elected representatives listening to foreign agents and not native citizens, if you are ready to put Americans’ interest first, second and third, and those of little welfare state Sparta in the dustbin of history, then get ready to confront the occupiers and hijackers, never letting them rest, never letting them speak or be seen publicly without being confronted with a litany of their crimes.  

If the courts will not try them, then we must.  If the media will not expose them, then we will.  If the state will not prosecute them, then we should.  If their peers will not shame them, then we most definitely will.  Karma and justice should follow these crazies and criminals wherever they go, wherever they appear.  If America no longer suits them thanks to our actions, then they are welcome to move elsewhere. We do not want them in our nation anymore. They are not welcome, for they have brought nothing but war, death, destruction, fear, terror, decadence and manipulations.

Peaceful resistance must commence, the occupation of America must end, the neocon reign must be extinguished and the crazies roaming our streets must never be allowed to hijack our country again.

The Plan to Disappear Canada

The Plan to Disappear Canada

Seal of the SPP.
‘Deep integration’ comes out of shadows.
By Murray Dobbin
Published: June 8, 2007
email this article print this story

If the machinations going on in this country regarding so-called “deep integration” were instead a communist conspiracy to take over the country (you will, of course, have to try hard to imagine this) the news media would be blaring the story.

Pundits would pontificate, editorialists would erupt, security forces would be unleashed.

Instead, a virtual conspiracy to make the country disappear through assimilation into the U.S. gets barely a mention.

But news of the scheme — formally called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) — is finally breaking out of the secret chambers of the ruling elite and the federal government. This is both good news and bad. It’s good that ordinary citizens are finally getting a glimpse of the betrayal of their country. The news is bad because it reflects just how much of this scheme is already being implemented.

Given the meetings of CEOs and politicians to advance the scheme politically, as well as all that must go into its actual implementation, there is simply too much activity to keep secret.

Ten dots to connect

Here are 10 developments in the plan to disappear Canada.
Find information about the Magazines West c07 onference

1) Pesticides ‘harmonized.’ The most thoroughly reported story (though even this did not go much beyond the CanWest chain) was the revelation that Canada was about to “harmonize” its regulations, setting limits for pesticide residue on fruits and vegetables. In 40 per cent of the cases, the U.S. allows for higher levels. Richard Aucoin, chief registrar of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency, which sets Canada’s pesticide levels, said that Canada’s higher levels were a “trade irritant.”

The downgrading of health protection had been a NAFTA initiative, but is being “fast-tracked” as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Some 300 regulatory regimes are currently going through the same process.

2) Tory tirade. The next story that broke through the wall of media silence reported on the paranoid reaction of the Harper Conservatives to any criticism of the SPP. The occasion was hearings of the Commons International Trade Committee into the SPP, forced by the NDP.

Gordon Laxer, head of Alberta’s Parkland Institute, was testifying on the energy implications of the SPP, warning that eastern Canada could end up “freezing in the dark.” He had barely started when the chair of the committee, Conservative MP Leon Benoit, demanded that Laxer halt his “irrelevant” testimony. The Committee members overruled Benoit — who promptly (and illegally) adjourned the meeting and stomped out. The NDP and Liberal members nonetheless continued without him.

3) Council of corporate power. The SPP initiative began in earnest back in 2002 with the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (formerly the BCNI), the most powerful corporate body in the country. It continues it leadership role, but does not promote the scheme just in its own name. It instead has helped create several supportive bodies that now help drive the agenda. Included in these are the North American Competitive Council (NACC), which includes CEOs of the largest North American corporations, and which institutionalizes the exclusively corporate nature of the agreement. The NACC is the only advisory group to the three NAFTA/SPP governments.

4) Secretive summit. The NACC at least is public. But much of what happens in building the elite consensus for deep integration is done in absolute secrecy or very privately, away from the prying eyes of the media. The most secretive of these was held last year from Sept. 12 to 14, in Banff Springs. As The Tyee reported, the gathering was sponsored by something called the North American Forum* and it was attended by some of the most powerful members of the North American ruling elite.

Attendees, according to a leaked list that could not be confirmed, included Donald Rumsfeld, George Schultz (former U.S. Secretary of State), General Rick Hillier, Defence Minister Gordon O’Connor and Minister of Public Safety Stockwell Day. The media was not informed of the meeting and it was first revealed by the weekly Banff Crag & Canyon.

Stockwell Day refused to even confirm he was there, but said that even if he was, it was a “private” meeting that he would not comment on. There is no better indication that these meetings, and the SPP itself, constitute a parallel governing structure — unaccountable to any democratic institution or the public.

5) ‘No fly’ coordination. Canada will have its own “no-fly” list just like our U.S. “partner.”

As the Council of Canadians pointed out: “The no-fly list is very much a Security and Prosperity Partnership initiative. ‘The SPP Report to Leaders, August 2006’ outlines 105 SPP initiatives. Initiative #93 states, ‘Develop, test, evaluate and implement a plan to establish comparable aviation passenger screening, and the screening of baggage and air cargo (for North America).'”

Canada’s privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart has raised a number of concerns about the plan including the fact that the list will be shared with the U.S., that “false positives” are a virtual certainty, and that there is no evidence put forward by the government that the list will improve airline security.

6) Bye, bye Canadian dollar? David Dodge, the head of the Bank of Canada, told a Chicago audience that a single currency for North America “is possible.” That would see a big chunk of Canadian sovereignty and the ability to guide the economy through monetary policy go out the window. It’s not the first time Dodge has mused about abandoning the Canadian dollar – or deep integration.

7) Water and oil giveaways. The deep integrationists clearly see Canadian water as a North American resource, not a Canadian resource. At yet another very private meeting, held in Calgary on April 27th under the auspices of yet another forum, it was made clear that water is on the table for negotiation.

Discussion of bulk “water transfers” and diversions took place at a Calgary meeting of the North American Future 2025 Project (partly funded by the U.S. government). The meeting based its deliberations on the false notion that Canada has 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water. Actual available supply amounts to only around six per cent — about the same as has the U.S.

The water (and environment) meeting was preceded by another on April 26th talking about “North American” energy. The beneficiary of these discussions is pretty clear when you realize Canada has no national energy policy. We are the only energy exporting country in the world without a one.

Gordon Laxer told the Parliamentary committee: “The National Energy Board wrote me on April 12: ‘Unfortunately, the NEB has not undertaken any studies on security of supply.'” He was also told by the NEB that Canada does not maintain a 90 day energy reserve as other developed nations do. As Laxer points out, “Canada may be a net exporter, but it still imports 40 per cent of its oil — 850,000 barrels per day — to meet 90 per cent of Atlantic Canada’s and Quebec’s needs, and 40 per cent of Ontario’s.”

Canada exports 63 per cent of its oil production and 56 per cent of its natural gas, percentages that can never decrease under NAFTA.

8) NAFTA Superhighway. State governments in the U.S. are becoming increasingly alarmed at the prospects of deep integration. Earlier this year, Idaho became the first state to pass a legislative resolution directing the U.S. Congress to drop out of the SPP, which is referred to as the North American Union amongst U.S. opponents. Thirteen states in addition to Idaho are calling on Congress to abandon the SPP: Georgia, Arizona, Missouri, Illinois, Oregon, Montana, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Utah, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington and Virginia.

Part of the opposition is focused on plans for a so-called NAFTA Superhighway: actually a corridor several hundred metres wide including rail lines, freeways and pipelines from Mexico to the Canadian border. There is a growing grass roots movement against the SPP in the U.S., but led by the right over the issue of compromising American sovereignty.

9) Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA). While U.S. states, concerned about state rights under an unaccountable “North American Union,” are organizing against the scheme, Canadian provinces are either blithely unaware or knowingly complicit in the deal. More Canadians may be aware of TILMA — the investors’ rights agreement between B.C. and Albert — than they are about the SPP, but in reality they are one and the same.

TILMA is major piece of the deep integration, deregulation imperative and fits hand in glove with the SPP. There is a similar, though more informal, process evolving in the Atlantic provinces, called “Atlantica.” And B.C. is now pushing the so-called Gateway Initiative, a kind of regional superhighway project that will see huge and environmentally disastrous expansion of ports, highways and pipelines to further supply the U.S.’s insatiable demand for resources and cheap Asian goods.

10) The next SPP summit. The third leaders summit on the SPP will take place this August 21-22nd in Montebello, Quebec, not far from Ottawa. By the time it does many more Canadian will be aware of it.

Part of the reason that news of the SPP/deep integration issue is finally seeing the light of day is that opposition is growing and groups fighting the SPP are having an impact. The Council of Canadians, the CLC and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives held an SPP teach-in in Ottawa last month and many civil society groups are now taking deep integration to their members. Demonstrations are planned for the summit. The NDP continues to press the government on SPP secrecy and the Green Party’s Elizabeth May has said deep integration will be a focus of the party’s election platform.

It is hard to think of any other issue in modern Canadian history, especially one that will literally determine whether the country survives or not, that has taken so long to get public attention. I first wrote about it September, 2002.

By the time the SPP summit has come and gone and the fall political season begins, deep integration, the most treacherous plan for the country yet devised by Bay Street, will be increasingly exposed.

And by the next election, we could see a repeat of the great “free trade” election of 1988. This time we have to win.
