Army slashing 8,700 jobs as budget cuts begin

With deeper budget cuts looming, the Pentagon is starting to cut back by trimming the Defense Department’s civilian workforce.
The Army said Thursday it is moving forward with plans announced in July to cut about 8,700 positions, using a mix of early retirement offers, buyouts and attrition to trim the jobs by the end of the fiscal year in late September.
“Army commands and agencies are continuing to take necessary actions to reduce their civilian on-board strength to meet funded targets established by the secretary of defense and reflected in the President’s budget,” Thomas R. Lamont, assistant secretary of the Army for manpower and reserve affairs, said in a statement. “To the maximum extent possible, the Army will rely on voluntary departures to achieve these manpower reductions.”

“Merkozy” Letter to EU: Now Is the Time to Strip Countries of Sovereignty

The New American

THURSDAY, 08 DECEMBER 2011 17:14

In his candid appraisal of the letter from Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s Nicolas Sarkozy to the European Union meeting that starts Friday in Brussels, Dan Murphy makes clear that this summit will be different from the previous 20: This one is determined to override national sovereignty to save the euro. The core of the letter is the offer of the fatal alternative to the euro zone nations: Either give up essential sovereign control over your budgets to the EU, or destroy the euro.
The “Merkozy” letter said,
The current crisis has uncovered the deficiencies in the construction of the [European Monetary Union] mercilessly. We need to remedy those deficiencies…. We need more binding and more ambitious rules and commitments for the Euro area Member States. They should reflect that sharing a single currency means sharing responsibility for the Euro area as a whole. The building blocks of the new Stability and Growth Union are: A strengthened institutional architecture. Euro area governance needs to be substantially reinforced.
The problem, until now, has been the virtual impossibility of amending unanimously the various treaties under which the EU currently operates. With the clock ticking amid increasingly nervous financial markets, there is no time for that nicety. And so a way has been found: doing an end run around the process by using a little-known clause in the Schengen treaty to speed up implementation of the “strengthened institutional architecture” that is needed.
In a speech on Thursday in Marseille, Sarkozy expanded on just what the new agreement would require, along with guarded references to how it might be enforced. He said, “Never has [a united] Europe been so necessary. Never has it been in so much danger…. Never has the risk of a disintegration of Europe been so great. Europe is facing an extraordinarily dangerous situation.” What is needed, he said, is the ability to enforce budgetary discipline by penalizing those countries that overspend under the new rules.

UN Draft Text Demands: The West will pay 'climate debt' because of its 'historical responsibility' for causing 'global warming' -- UN seeks end to wars to 'protect the climate system'
December 9, 2011
Durban: what the media are not telling you
By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley in Durban, South Africa
DURBAN, South Africa -- “No high hopes for Durban.” “Binding treaty unlikely.” “No deal this year.” Thus ran the headlines. The profiteering UN bureaucrats here think otherwise. Their plans to establish a world government paid for by the West on the pretext of dealing with the non-problem of “global warming” are now well in hand. As usual, the mainstream media have simply not reported what is in the draft text which the 194 states parties to the UN framework convention on climate change are being asked to approve.
Behind the scenes, throughout the year since Cancun, the now-permanent bureaucrats who have made highly-profitable careers out of what they lovingly call “the process” have been beavering away at what is now a 138-page document. Its catchy title is "Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Cooperative Action Under the Convention -- Update of the amalgamation of draft texts in preparation of [one imagines they mean 'for'] a comprehensive and balanced outcome to be presented to the Conference of the Parties for adoption at its seventeenth session: note by the Chair.” In plain English, these are the conclusions the bureaucracy wants.
The contents of this document, turgidly drafted with all the UN's skill at what the former head of its documentation center used to call “transparent impenetrability”, are not just off the wall – they are lunatic.
Main points:
Ø A new International Climate Court will have the power to compel Western nations to pay ever-larger sums to third-world countries in the name of making reparation for supposed “climate debt”. The Court will have no power over third-world countries. Here and throughout the draft, the West is the sole target. “The process” is now irredeemably anti-Western.
Ø “Rights of Mother Earth”: The draft, which seems to have been written by feeble-minded green activists and environmental extremists, talks of “The recognition and defence of the rights of Mother Earth to ensure harmony between humanity and nature”. Also, “there will be no commodification [whatever that may be: it is not in the dictionary and does not deserve to be] of the functions of nature, therefore no carbon market will be developed with that purpose”.
Ø “Right to survive”: The draft childishly asserts that “The rights of some Parties to survive are threatened by the adverse impacts of climate change, including sea level rise.” At 2 inches per century, according to eight years' data from the Envisat satellite? Oh, come off it! The Jason 2 satellite, the new kid on the block, shows that sea-level has actually dropped over the past three years.

Stewart Rhodes: Feds Demand Customer Lists From Storable Food Facility

“A fellow veteran contacted me concerning a new and disturbing development. He had been utilizing a Mormon cannery near his home to purchase bulk food supplies. The man that manages the facility related to him that federal agents had visited the facility and demanded a list of individuals that had been purchasing bulk food. The manager informed the agents that the facility kept no such records and that all transactions were conducted on a cash-and-carry basis.

Internment Camps, Fusion centers, and Indefinite Detention

Mark Matheny
December 9, 2011

For years, people who have sounded the alarm about plans for FEMA camps, Martial Law, and indefinite detention of Americans considered enemies of the State, have been dismissed as "conspiracy theorists" and "tin foil hat wearers".

I have gathered the information on all of these topics. Study the documents and the evidence for yourself and decide - just a conspiracy theory? or cold hard sobering facts.

The Civilian Inmate Labor Program is a program of the United States Army provided by Army Regulation 210-35. The regulation, first drafted in 1997, underwent a "rapid act revision" in January 2005; it provides policy for the creation of labor programs and prison camps on Army installations. The labor would be provided by persons under the supervision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

HR 645 National Emergency Centers Establishment Act
To direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations.
KBR is establishing a National Quick Response Team for our current Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) work, and for
anticipated future contracts. Upon completion of evaluation, certain subcontractors may be
invited to establish a Master Services Agreement (MSA) with pre-established lease rates and
terms and conditions.

Internment/Resettlement Specialist
From the Official Army Website:

Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel.

Some of your duties as an Internment/Resettlement Specialist may include:
  • Assist with the supervision and management of confinement and detention operations
  • Provide external security to confinement/corrections facilities or detention/internment facilities
  • Provide counseling and guidance to individual prisoners within a rehabilitative program
  • Prepare or review reports and records of prisoners/internees and programs

Public Law 109-366 MILITARY COMMISSIONS ACT  (2006 version)
The United States House of Representatives passed a bill, known as the Military Commissions Act of 2009, which amended the Military Commissions Act of 2006.
In the final hours before adjourning in 2006, Congress passed and the president signed the Military Commissions Act (MCA). In doing so, they cast aside the Constitution and the principle of habeas corpus, which protects against unlawful and indefinite imprisonment. They also gave the president absolute power to designate enemy combatants, and to set his own definitions for torture. -source


According to, sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA will:
1) Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;
(2) Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and
(3) Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.

From the Official DHS Website:

State and major urban fusion centers (fusion centers) serve as focal points within the state and local environment for the receipt, analysis, gathering, and sharing of threat-related information between the federal government and state, local, tribal, territorial (SLTT) and private sector partners.

'Fusion Centers' Expand Criteria to Identify Militia Members:

If you're an anti-abortion activist, or if you display political paraphernalia supporting a third-party candidate or a certain Republican member of Congress, if you possess subversive literature, you very well might be a member of a domestic paramilitary group. That's according to "The Modern Militia Movement," a report by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), a government collective that identifies the warning signs of potential domestic terrorists for law enforcement communities.

Oath Keepers Receive Tip of National Guard Unit Stand-Down, Refusing to Answer Questionnaire Asking if They Would Use Lethal Force Against the American People

December 8, 2011

The below tip was posted on the official Oath Keepers Facebook Page by user “Pat Lowe.”  We are in the process of verifying this tip, so it is as of yet unconfirmed, but we wanted you to be aware of it (it certainly would be good news for a change!).  We will post and send out updates as we confirm and verify.
Message on Oath Keepers Facebook Page:
Paul Lowe

I hope you enjoy this great news as I did when I was told.

Paul Lowe

OUTSTANDING!! I just left my neighbors house. Devon is with the National Guard for this area. He just got home from a EDRE (emergency deployment readiness exercise) at the armory. He said that during the exercise 3 companies of infantry were polled by questionare about the drill and it’s purpose. One of the questions was, will you as a member of the Nat. Guard use lethal force against the American public if ordered to do so? One of the men stepped forward and refused to take the poll and explained that it was a moral judgement on his part and that he could not do so. He then placed his weapon on the ground and fell in behind the formation. Devon said it was like a waterfall, Every member layed their weapons on the deck and fell in beside the one lone specialist. This included ALL NCO’s, STAFF NCO’s and SENIOR NCO’s. The only people left in front of the original formation was 3 Capt’s. 2 Lt’s and the BN Commander who was so upset he started having chest pains from yelling and screaming about court martials and disbandment of the unit into other units. Devon is a Mstr.Sgt and he went with his troops and told them that he could not be prouder of any of them. He was floating while he was telling me this. Maybe we have more than just hope on our side. SEMPER FI. my thanks for the honor of being here Robert.

Paul Lowe

I just heard from Devon. He was TX’d by his Plt LDR and advised that the Specialist Who first layed down his weapon is being held in county jail by the Bn CMDR, awaiting a hearing under the UCMJ. Devon couldn’t get any more info than that. I don’t want to post the mans name until we have more information. I am so upset by this that I am having chest pains. How can they do this to one soldier and not them all. I will let you know how things go. Think I might go lay down for a bit. SEMPER FI.

Gary Greene

That is great, sort of, to hear. That the officers wont stand by THEIR oath is troubling. Where is this?


Again, this is unconfirmed, and we are working on confirming it.   Please keep that in mind.  But this is certainly the kind of mass, whole-unit stand-down that may well become necessary, especially in light of the treason of the US Senate, which voted 93-7 to authorize military detention and trial of U.S. citizens -- claiming the power to apply the laws of war to the American people in the same way as they are used on a conquered, enemy population, like Iraq or Afghanistan.   While National Guard units can, and have been used for riot control without violating their oath, we suspect that this survey was asking them about whether they would do something far worse than just keep the peace during riots.   We will do our best to get to the bottom of this, and provide all details once confirmed.
If accurate, this is reminiscent of the stand-down during Katrina by SSGT Joshua May’s Utah National Guard Unit, where the whole unit let their commander know, in a peremptory refusal, that they would not participate in any gun confiscation:

UPDATE Dec. 8:

Paul Lowe
I just left both people involved with the incident that took place in the last few days. The soldiers do not want to pursue this matter any further, in any way shape or form. I was advised that the situation is being dealt with inhouse and there will be internal investigations into the conduct of certain ‘officers’ who started the poll and ordered certain persons held. The person allegedly being held was only there for a couple of hours. No punishment will be handed down to any of the soldiers involved. I cannot give any further information as to names dates reasons units or places. This is in respect to my friends here. If this upsets anyone I am sorry but this is the way the soldiers want it. You have my deepest apology and I truly wish I had never spoken about any of this with my friends here on or FB. I will be posting no more information of this type due to the repercussions which could come from this.

Putin says U.S. stoked Russian protests

December 8, 2011

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Prime Minister Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Thursday of stirring up protests against his 12-year rule and said foreign countries were spending hundreds of millions of dollars to influence Russian elections.
In his first public remarks about daily demonstrations over allegations that Sunday's election was slanted to favour his ruling party, Putin said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had encouraged "mercenary" Kremlin foes by criticizing the vote.
"She set the tone for some opposition activists, gave them a signal, they heard this signal and started active work," Putin told supporters as he laid out plans for his campaign to return to the presidency in a March election.
Invoking Ukraine's 2004 Orange Revolution and the violent downfall of governments in Kyrgyzstan -- another fellow former Soviet republic where Moscow has suggested street protesters had U.S. support -- he said Western nations were spending heavily to foment political change in Russia.
"Pouring foreign money into electoral processes is particularly unacceptable," said Putin. "Hundreds of millions are being invested in this work. We need to work out forms of protection of our sovereignty, defense against interference from outside."
He added: "We have to think of ways to tighten accountability for those who carry out the aims of foreign states to influence domestic political processes."

Jon Stewart Makes A Case For Obama’s Indefinite Detention Without Trial

Wednesday, Daily Show host Jon Stewart took a look at the passage of a bill that would allow the government to detain certain American prisoners indefinitely, without a trial.
He noted what a brief amount of time it took to discuss such an important move, airing a clip of Sen. Rand Paul calling the bill “unamerican,” and of Sen. John McCain calling out Paul’s “opinion” for possibly allowing American terrorists to go free and continue trying to harm their fellow citizens. Sen.Carl Levin, meanwhile, noted that Al Qaeda brought “that war to our shows” and Sen. Lindsey Graham said they were trying to “destroy our way of life.”
“So we’re gonna destroy it before they can get their hands on it,” joked Stewart.
Cut to: then-Senator Barack Obama telling an audience in 2007 that “we are not a country that runs prisons that locks people away without ever telling them why they’re there or what they’re charged with.”
But Obama is going to veto this piece of legislation not because he “objects to the executive branch having near infinite power to detain whoever it wants,” as Stewart described it, but because it doesn’t allow him “totally infinite power.”
That said! Prisoners would be freed once “the war on terror ends” and “terror surrenders.”
As for people who feel the passage of this bill wouldn’t impact them personally because 1) they are not terrorists and 2) do not actively support terrorist activity, Sen. Paul reminds us that even people who are “missing fingers” or who own guns or ammo are considered possible terror suspects by the U.S. government and, as such, could possibly feel the impact of this piece of legislation. Or, you know. People who may have, at one time, attended a madrasa, perhaps as a child. Or who have associated with radical thinkers. Or who have routinely hung out with dudes missing a few fingers.
People like…. Well, far be it from me to spoil the surprise.

Moore: “Wall Street Has Their Man And His Name Is Barack Obama”

Editor's Note: While I don't agree with everything Michael Moore says, I do agree with his comments on Obama and Wall Street in this article.
Real Clear Politics
December 7, 2011
MICHAEL MOORE, ON CNN: Well, “The Washington post” three weeks ago had this investigation and they said that President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the banks for this election cycle than all — than all eight Republicans combined. I don’t want to say that, because if that’s the truth, that Wall Street already has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we’ve got a much bigger problem.
But I think President Obama, if he were here in the room, the question I would ask him is why are they your number one contributors? Why are you taking this money?
MORGAN: It’s fascinating to find out why they’re doing it. I’ll ask him.
MOORE: What are they expecting in return in the second term from you? Right now, here’s what we do know. Goldman Sachs was your number one contributor the 2008 election. And we have not seen anyone from Goldman Sachs go to jail. We have not seen the regulations, Glass/Steagall, put back on to Wall Street now three years after the crash.
Why hasn’t that happened? President Obama, we the people need you to take them by the throat and say, damn it, this is the United States of America; you don’t steal from the working people of this country. And this is the way it’s going to be.

NBC News Content To Be Provided By Billionaire Obama, MoveOn Donors

Powerful special interests masquerading as partisan media
Steve Watson
December 7, 2011
NBC has reached an agreement to broadcast news content provided by a media organisation run by a team that has ploughed millions of dollars into campaigning for Barack Obama and donated large cash amounts to organisations such as the George Soros affiliated and the now defunct ACORN.
The LA Times reports that NBC has opened up the newsrooms of all its affiliates across the country to ProPublica, which describes itself as an “independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.”
NBC affiliated and Comcast owned radio stations will also broadcast ProPublica content under the agreement.
“The arrangement comes as Comcast moves to fulfill its commitment to federal regulators to strengthen local, public-interest programming in the wake of its purchase of NBCUniversal earlier this year.” the Times report states.
NBC stations will also produce their own stories based upon ProPublica’s output.
“We put the reporting at their fingertips and they can do terrific local stories with it,” said Richard Tofel, general manager for ProPublica.
The development represents yet another infiltration of corporate news media by special interests with their own political agenda.

Newt Gingrich:Government Should Allow Some Terror Attacks to Succeed

Mark Matheny
December 7, 2011

In an appearance on Book TV (C-SPAN2), Newt Gingrich responded to a question of why the U.S. has not been hit with a Terrorist attack, by saying that the U.S. Government should let a terrorist attack be successful every once in a while so it will remind us that we are in a war against terror!

He also stated in the answer that the government has been successful in stopping attacks due to wire tapping.

He  then went on to say that he would divide the FBI into two groups: An Anti-Domestic Crime FBI, that would be very cautious and respectful of American Civil Liberties, where a citizen is innocent until proven guilty. The 2nd group of the Anti-Domestic Crime FBI, Newt stated,  would be small and very aggressive saying "I would have a small but very aggressive anti-terrorism agency, and I would frankly give them extraordinary ability to eavesdrop, and my first advice to civil libertarians is simple - don't plot with terrorists."


If Newt Gingrich were to become President in 2012, I'm sure he will choose to remind us of the war on terror in this way...

Obama Pondering National Police Force ... Again?

The Daily Bell
December 7, 2011

Tuesday, December 06, 2011 – by Staff Report
The United States is probably the only nation that does not have national police. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) was created to achieve this goal. A counter move by concerned citizens was the "support your local police and keep them independent" movement. Older citizens may recall seeing bumper stickers and other advertising to that effect. The LEAA was abolished in 1982. Today, a new movement is afoot to nationalize our local police by stealth. In the [2009] campaign,Barack Obama advocated "a civilian police to match the size and power of our armed forces." More recently, Obama advocated enlarging the U.S. Marshal's Service into a "stability police." He is being assisted by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The group has convinced many local police and sheriff's officials that conservatives are the enemy. – CJOnline
Dominant Social Theme: What the US needs is more law and order.
Free-Market Analysis: We have been commenting on the growing wave of "law and order" in the United States. And this letter to the editor, excerpted above, is surely another sign of it. There is so much ruin in the country (and the West) now that the powers-that-be are likely growing increasingly worried about civilian unrest.
They are, in our view, actively encouraging such unrest (so as to be able to shape it) but also, at the same time, they are suppressing unrest and seek to create further law enforcement bodies and quasi-military groups to ensure that civil unrest does not spread unchecked. One such group – in the US, anyway – would be a national police force.
This is only part of a larger authoritarian drive, however. The Anglosphere power elite that apparently wants to run the world (formally) is using the current economic chaos to prepare fundamental, Draconian "reforms" to the way US business and investing works.
US President Barack Obama's persona and policies are surely tailored to this larger meme. Authoritarianism can be developed in numerous ways. We have, for instance, covered the new Pecora Hearings that we believe are being generated even now.
These hearings are not yet in evidence but we are sure they will be. In fact, secret efforts in Congress to set up such hearings have been reported by at least one alternative news website that then removed the article. But it seems obvious to us that these hearings are going to take place at some point.
The Pecora Hearings themselves took place in the 1930s. At that time, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used them to blame the Crash of '29 and the Depression on Wall Street. It was a classic case of misdirection, in our view – blame Wall Street for what the central bankers did and Fedgov covered up.
In reality, the Depression was likely caused by the New York Fed over-printing dollars – a policy that created first the Roaring '20s and then the Depressed '30s. FDR first shut down banks and then confiscated gold to ensure that US citizens wouldn't find out there was not enough gold to redeem their over-printed dollars.
Now, in our view, the power elite is replaying this tactic. In order to create world government, it helps if governance in general is strengthened. This is taking place around the world even now via austerity measures and a campaign through the West to "punish corruption."
The same patterns that made the 1930s such a tragic decade are being repeated as the 21st century faces its second decade. When government has too much power, things can go wrong very quickly. And then the temptation is to point fingers at the private sector to find a scapegoat. Here's some more from the letter about setting up a national police force:
In 2008, the Missouri Highway Patrol was alerted that people who supported Ron Paul, Bob Barr, the Constitution Party, Libertarian Party, Second Amendment Advocates or the John Birch Society, or who were devout Christians, were potential terrorists ... One of the most constitutional forms of local police is the constable system .... Support your local police. Keep them independent and working for the citizens.
