In the 90's, American marines and national guard were occasionally asked if they would be willing to fire on American citizens in a time of crisis.
In 2005-2006 it is your son or daughter being asked about their allegiance to the state. (Is this a bad dream or did I wake up in the homeland of that other revolution?)(All subsequent italics mine for emphasis.)
Speaking before the U.S. Senate on December 15, 1987 Senator Jesse Helms had this to say before his colleagues:
"This campaign against the American people-- against traditional American culture and values-- is systematic psychological warfare. It is orchestrated by a vast array of interests comprising not only the Eastern establishment but also the radical left. Among this group we find the Department of State" (Colin Powell, WMD Iraq), "the Department of Commerce, the money center banks and multinational corporations, the media, the educational establishment, the entertainment industry, and the large tax exempt foundations. Mr. President, a careful examination of what is happening behind the scenes reveals that all of these interests are working in concert with the masters of the Kremlin in order to create what some refer to as the New World Order."(1) (See Ten Kingdoms)
In the 1950's the congressional Reece Committee held hearings to investigate tax-exempt foundations. Norman Dodd, the director of research for the committee, had at one point during the committee investigations been invited to the headquarters of the Ford foundation by it's president, H. Rowan Gaither, who was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
During his visit Gaither told Dodd:
"All of us here at the policy making level have had experience, either in OSS (Office of Strategic Services) or the European Economic Administration, with directives from the White House. We operate under those directives here. Would you like to know what those directives are?"
Dodd responded that he would, after which Gaither replied:
"The substance of them is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."(2)
Dodd, who was jolted by the frankness of the remarks, asked if Gaither would be willing to repeat his statement before the Reece Committee; to which the Ford Foundation president responded: "That we would not think of doing."(3)
Rear Admiral Chester Ward, a former (CFR) member for sixteen years, warned the American people of the Council on Foreign Relations intentions.
"The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common--- they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States."(4)
