When people think about Homeland Security, they immediately think about 9/11, Al-Qaeda, the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the terrorist attacks on American soil and George W. Bush. I think about tyranny, the police state and all the other bullshit people seem to adore more than freedom. The reality of the situation is that, although Bush and 9/11 were major factors in Homeland Security becoming a reality, this idea was not born from the Bush Administration. In fact, the Bush Administration opposed the idea of Homeland Security, until the events of September 11th, 2001 forced them to reanalyze their stance. The truth is, the idea for Homeland Security came from the Clinton Administration and Senator Joe Lieberman in 1998. Being born out of the Clinton era is what caused 2 Bush 2 Furious to blow off the whole damn idea. I wish Dubya would’ve stuck to that stance but then again he was a pro big government liberal-conservative and the epitome of the left-right paradigm.
This all “officially” started in 1998 with a report created by the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century simply called “Road Map for National Security: Imperative for Change”. Change you say? The report called for the implementation of a “homeland security force”. After 9/11 and several times thereafter, the Bush Administration added and modified the Commission to fit what they deemed necessary for “national security” purposes. The Commission was significantly influenced by the Council on Foreign Relations: a semi-secret private organization of which Bush II: Bush Harder’s father was a prominent member. With strict membership standards, the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR, was created in 1921 and was known at that time as the Rockefeller Council on Foreign Relations. Stick that in your conspiracy pipe and smoke it. My favorite flavor of pipe tobacco is the Bilderberg Burly Balkan blend.
According to the CFR themselves about themselves:
“If the Council as a body has stood for anything these 75 years, it has been for American internationalism based on American interests. If the Council has had influence during this period, it has derived from individual members taking the varied and often conflicting fare of Council meetings and publications to a wider American audience. From Foreign Affairs articles by W.E.B. DuBois and George F. Kennan to books by Henry A. Kissinger and Stanley Hoffmann, the Council’s role has been to find the best minds and leaders, bring them together with other Council members, and provide forum and stage.”
Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, William Colby, George Bush Sr., William Webster, James Woolsey, John Deutsch, and William Casey have all been prominent members of the Council on Foreign Relations and all were also Directors of the CIA. Some of these names should raise a few eyebrows and actually, the CFR itself has often times been the focus of scrutiny and conspiracy theorists’ wet dreams. Now I don’t want to jump onto that all-to-easy conspiracy bandwagon but when delving deeper into the truth, disproving the basis of their claims becomes nearly impossible. In fact, there is more to support a conspiracy than to prove that it is just crazy talk.
Hell, Henry Kissinger is a prominent member of the Bilderberg Group, as are the Rockefellers (who founded the CFR). Kissinger, publicly and completely out in the open, has been calling for a “new world order” for years. Kissinger’s foreign policy focused on protecting and advancing U.S. interests abroad. His stance seems noble and logical, however he pushed those interests forward even if it meant supporting repressive governments which rejected American political and civil values. Throughout his political career, he has often times been accused of committing war crimes, which have been supported by compelling evidence. Kissinger, a Jew who escaped Nazi Germany, should probably not want to associate with an organization that has ties to the Nazis but as you will see, the CFR has such ties.
Allen Dulles, former CIA director and big wig for the Council on Foreign Relations was a friend to the Nazi regime during and after World War II. In fact, he hired a large number of Nazis into the CIA before he was that organization’s director. The fact that he was made the director of the CIA after helping the enemy, the worst enemy the world has ever faced, is pretty fucking sickening. That’s not even the tip of the iceberg though. Dulles’s involvement with the Nazis is a puzzle, to say the least. His web of evil bullshit is a tough one to untangle and really merits its own blog or series of blogs. To keep it concise, I’ll simply state that his most atrocious act would have to be that he helped prominent Nazi leaders escape Germany and sent them to Argentina, where he hired them into the CIA to be informants against the socialist and nationalist groups in South America. This fucksack should have been tried for treason and not have been handed the CIA on a silver blood-splattered platter.
Now back to the Bush Family. Grandfather Prescott also had ties to the Nazis, father Geroge, Sr. was incredibly influential in the CFR and also CIA director for a period of time, son George, Jr. made Homeland Security a reality and his cabinet was full of CFR members. Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, George Shultz, Robert Blackwill, Stephen Hadley, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dov Zakheim, Lewis Libby, Robert Zoellick and many others held prominent positions in the CFR and in Bush’s cabinet as well as helping orchestrate what would become known as the Homeland Security Act on November 25th, 2002.
When the Homeland Security Act was first brought forth to be considered, it was a 32 page document. Once Bush II: The Secret of the Ooze and his cronies got a hold of the thing, it swelled to over 500 pages. This massive document (albeit not as big as Obamacare) called for the creation of the largest federal agency in history. Needing 170,000 employees, the agency’s budget was proposed to be roughly $38 billion just in 2003 alone. Now I am not sure what the final budget was but knowing government, I am sure it went well over the proposal and in the years since, I am sure that it has multiplied exponentially like mogwais at a night time beach party.
Now, I shouldn’t have to give the millions of reasons why the Homeland Security Act is tyrannical and an enemy of liberty. Any American with his wits about him should be able to put two and two together and frankly, any conspiracy theorist whether a true freedom fighter or a nutjob should be able to see the seeds planted for the rise of a real police state. Retrospectively, it is important to see where this whole thing came from and the roots of its tyranny, deceit and control, which have given us this faux safety net in exchange for our freedom.
