FDR Exposed Part 4: Alphabitical Federal Overreach and the Civil Liberties Stomp Down

By: Jay Loeffers

Nope, sorry! These are not new house party dance moves, these are the moves that President Roosevelt pulled off in the name of the greater good for America and knowing progressives they way I know them now, I don’t think so. Today we will look at the massive amount of federal agencies, business regulations and anti-trust harassment laws that were in effect at this time. Then I will expose FDR’s so-called ways that he protected American liberties and freedoms – in this case, mostly a lack thereof. I will show Roosevelt’s talent for creating a manufactured crises (you know, that whole burning of farm surplus to cause a food shortage and price controls).

Looking at today’s pile of government agencies and regulations, and with the governments budget shortfalls, you’d think they would want to cut back and slim a lot of them down to save money and streamline operations. But no… just recently DHS was reported as buying – get this – 450 MILLION rounds of .40 S&W pistol ammo with a hope of an unlimited supply and possibly a 4 year contract. That breaks down to 3 rounds for every man, woman and child in the U.S. Even the FBI doesn’t use that much ammo in a year.

This next set of facts are in a nutshell the many alphabet agencies that Roosevelt created and passed on as the so-called protection of America.

Let’s do the Roosevelt alphabet agency dance, yeah!

1. NRA – NATION RECOVERY ADMIN: In 1933, this agency’s job was to “stimulate” the economy by ending wage and price deflation and to control what it deemed unfair competition. They also wanted to control work hours as well and to not follow the NRA regulations meant jail time.

Example: A dry cleaner in New York City named Jacob Maged, went to jail for 8 months for charging – get this – a whopping 35 cents instead of the NRA price regulation of 40 cents!

Roosevelt believed wrongly that the NRA would serve well his belief in the under-consumption theory of economics. That artificially higher wages meant greater purchasing power… this alone would pull America out of the Great Depression; if people earned more, they would buy more and this might “stimulate” industrial and economic recovery.

Final thoughts on government price controls from Adam Smith:

“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

Two years later in 1935, cooler heads at the Supreme Court declared the NRA unconstitutional.

2. AAA – THE AGRICULTURAL ADJUSTMENT ACT: In Roosevelt’s first 100 days in office, he wanted to restructure all American farming programs. Some farmers were picked out and paid not to grow any crops and crop price controls were retroactive back to 1910 with millers and processors paying for much of the program. And with centralized power given to the Secretary of Agriculture, he would: set the process tax, set targeted pricing of many commodities and tell farmers how much land they could or couldn’t use. This was a way for Roosevelt to control the American food supply and the United States became the largest food exporter of the time.

The AAA destroyed and plowed under 10 million acres of cotton, killed 6 million piglets and also burned out millions of acres of useful farmland. Welcome food shortages and soup lines everyone.

3. PWA – PUBLIC WORKS ADMIN: This was the first “shovel ready” relief program in 1933. Over 4 billion dollars were spent for only a lousy 34,000 projects.

4. NYA – NATIONAL YOUTH ADMIN: Another “make work” public works program targeted at young people. It claimed to have put 4.5 million young people to work.

5. SEC – SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION: In 1934, the SEC was made out to be a so-called “Watch Dog” on the federal level to protect against stock market and securities fraud, but… in 2001, it was tarnished forever by the Enron scandal.

6. CWA – CIVIL WORKS ADMIN: This was designed to employ 4 million people in 1933 in government civil service jobs, but… was found to be useless and got nothing done. It was disbanded almost a year later.

7. FERA – FEDERAL EMERGENCY RELIEF ADMIN: This was a program in 1933 that expanded to include funding for over 5 million households each month and works projects for the unemployed. This included free vaccinations and free adult reading classes.

8. FHA – FEDERAL HOUSING ADMIN: This program in 1934 was to ‘stimulate’ the downtrodden building industry, by providing small loans for home building.

9. NLRA – NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT: In 1935, this program gave special protection to all labor unions.

Now, let’s go do the FDR anti-liberty shuffle! You put your right foot forward, your head bowed down and put your wrists together and the sound of a door slam! Is this fun, or what folks?

This is how it is in the world of the lamestream media and history teachers with radical agendas that keep yacking about how FDR was the great protector of America’s freedoms and saved us all from ourselves through his wonderful and enlightened programs. Let’s take a real look at Roosevelt’s civil liberties record for the time being, shall we?

COURT PACKING – In 1937, Roosevelt pulled off an almost perfect court packing con to place judges that would only side with his ideas and issues. This would enable him to strong arm anyone who would oppose him through the court system.

ILLEGAL WIRETAPPING AND UNWARRANTED SURVEILLANCE – During all of Roosevelt’s time in office, he truly hated anyone that disagreed with him. I mean, how could that narrow minded ba^&%d disagree with me? I am the president of the United States! One of his favorite tools was wiretapping both friend and foe. Can you believe there were newspapers and reporters of that time that were not shills of the White House? Reporters like Walter Trohan and his editor Robert McCormick, both of the Chicago Tribune. They got under Roosevelt’s skin because they wrote an article opposing FDR’s ideas. I mean, how dare they, right? So, he sent the IRS after them and their families. Wiretapped their homes and offices and sent the FBI to harass them.

Roosevelt claimed the reason McCormick hated him was because he had stolen a girlfriend from McCormick.

IRS AUDITS – He used audits as personal weapons against both the opposition and friends that were of no use to him anymore. Almost all of the audits Roosevelt ordered found mostly nothing at all.

RANDOM CHARGES OF SEDITION – Later on, Roosevelt thought he would use an old Woodrow Wilson trick during times of war. Let’s charge anyone that opposes me or the war with sedition and accuse others of having “subversives minds” and ruin them

FDR’S OWN PERSONAL SPY NETWORK – Roosevelt also had his own little spy guys he would send out to dig up dirt on anyone and maybe blackmail them, or embarrass the opposition into quitting. He even used the Secret Service as his goon squad for certain jobs. Have you ever heard of the Boy Spies of America? I did about 2 years ago from Glenn Beck. This was a very subversive group of kids who were recruited by FDR to watch out for people speaking out against the war or maybe talking against the president or disagreeing with his ideas. They were to report it as fast as possible.

CONTROL OF THE FREE PRESS AND THE MEDIA – In 1934, Congress passed the Communications Act of 1934. This was the first real fairness in media bill. This was to force radio, TV and movies to propagandize government content as many times a day as possible. To get the masses onto the right train of thought. Does this at all sound familiar to you? Just like George Orwell.

THE JAPANESE-AMERICAN INTERNMENT CAMPS – This should have been the most poisonous chapter in Roosevelt’s history in office. This was the most disgusting civil rights violation in American history. I don’t care if it was a time of war or peace. You never do that with proper procedures as stated in the Constitution period! This was wrong then, just as it was wrong when Andrew Jackson pushed the Indians onto worthless reservation land. This story starts a little after Pearl Harbor.

During this time, most Japanese-Americans were living in the western states, mostly in California. They were earning a quiet living as farmers. They were hard working and loyal to America, always doing their part. But there was this jealous group of racists known as THE NATIVE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE GOLDEN WEST who opposed Japanese immigrants.

One congressman – Leland Ford of L.A., shared this racist view and said this:

“We may as well be honest, we do. It’s a question of whether the white man lives on the coast or the brown man.”

I was born in California and I thought Californians were supposed to be sooo enlightened and be beyond such things.

General John Dewitt was tasked with looking into the Japanese-American’s situation and after working closely with them after Pearl Harbor, he reported that there was absolutely no danger from these loyal Americans and they should be left in peace. After just two whole months, pressure from wild and unproven rumors had changed his mind. Then he went around saying the dumbest thing, “that a Jap is a Jap.” I guess we could change this guy’s name to DEWITTLESS.

Roosevelt then signed Executive Order 066 and in one fell swoop put a whole class of honest Americans in prison camps with no recourse. He denied those Americans their freedom for reasons of “Military Necessity,” without the right of Habeas Corpus. No protection from search and seizure and no protection of their property.

These poor people were stuffed in barren, dusty and filthy fairgrounds areas (like the one in Merced, CA), or placed in the middle of nowhere. Housed in basically thin-walled wooden boxes, surrounded by barbed wire, guard towers with machine guns mounted, filthy community bathrooms and charged with no crimes.

So, this was the legacy of the country’s greatest president of all time… really? A man that was such a progressive minded socialist, who disregarded the Constitution on every occasion, who stomped down on the lives of businessmen, hard working average Joes and a whole race of American citizens thrown in prison for no reason. Yep, sounds like the greatest… as in dumb ass.

World Government Lobby Frets Over Fate of Lugar

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

“He’s got to run against who he is.” This was the verdict on Republican Senator Richard Lugar from one of the activists attending a Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS) national conference in Washington, D.C. last week. The group used to be known as the World Federalist Association but dropped the name because of the taint associated with promoting world government.

The incumbent Lugar, one of their favorites, is fighting for his political life in the Indiana Republican Senate primary against Richard Mourdock, Indiana’s State Treasurer, who has highlighted Lugar’s financial link to Democratic money bags George Soros. “Senator Lugar is one of the few Republicans ever supported by Soros,” Mourdock says.

The World Federalist Association had openly stated that a “world federation,” a euphemism for world government, can be achieved by advancing “step by step toward global governance” through establishing new U.N.-associated entities such as the International Criminal Court and by passing measures like the Law of the Sea Treaty. One of its main priorities is “To provide the U.N. with sustained and independent sources of funding.” That is, global taxes.

“Lugar can’t use that part of who he is,” said a left-wing activist, discussing the race as people waited for Obama Administration officials to brief the participants on “genocide prevention.” He said the world government lobby had met with Lugar’s personnel to offer their help, but were told that any public expression of support for the liberal Republican senator would backfire because of mounting Republican suspicions that Lugar is a RINO—Republican In Name Only.

In this context, the release of the latest CGS Congressional Report Card cannot come as good news for the senator. The group gives Lugar a B minus, the highest for any Republican in the Senate except for liberal Susan Collins of Maine.

By comparison, the other Republican senator from Indiana, conservative Dan Coats, got an F.

The report card measures votes on global issues such as ratification of U.N. treaties, and funding for international institutions such as the U.N. and the International Monetary Fund.

As Lugar’s true colors as a globalist begin to be covered by the national media, another embarrassment has emerged. A local elections board has ruled that Lugar can’t vote for himself in the primary, scheduled for May 8, because he doesn’t live in the state.

Once known as then-Senator Barack Obama’s closest Republican friend in the Senate, he is now running as somebody opposed to the Obama agenda on issues such as the intervention in Libya.

The big question is whether his extreme makeover as an anti-Obama conservative Republican will work. The major media have been content to let Lugar remake his image, but alternative media such as Red State and Tea Party groups have been working hard to get the facts out to the voting public. The result is that although Lugar had been leading Mourdock by 20 points, the latest poll has him up by only six. This is making big news on a national and local basis, with one paper proclaiming, “Polls indicate gap in Indiana’s Senate primary closing.”

Lugar, a prominent backer of the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty, even has financial ties to the world government lobby, having accepted campaign contributions from the Citizens for Global Solutions political action committee and giving an interview to the organization’s newsletter. One edition of its newsletter hailed Lugar as one of several “internationalist Senators” the group was working with. Another heralded Senators Obama and Lugar as “globally-minded leaders” supported by CGS. Lugar has been “a long-time advocate for internationalism,” it said.

Although it admires Lugar and other liberal Republicans, the CGS works hard to defeat conservative Republicans. In 2006 it attacked Pennsylvania Republican Senator Rick Santorum, who was running for re-election. Drew J. Asson, who ran the CGS political action committee trying to defeat Santorum, was quoted as saying that President Bush was a “fascist” and that Israel was guilty of “aggression” and “murder” in its campaign against terrorists. Asson’s PAC gave $5,000 to Santorum’s successful opponent, Bob Casey, who promised a “new direction” in foreign and domestic policy.

But shortly after an editorial in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review challenged Casey about the controversial donation from the group, Casey’s campaign returned the money.

Obviously aware of the sensitivity caused by a financial link to a world government group, the Lugar campaign website makes no mention of it and instead insists the senator is a “national security leader.” It emphasizes Lugar’s work with former Democratic Senator Sam Nunn on the Nunn-Lugar bill to eliminate nuclear weapons in Russia. However, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) revealed that some of the funds were used to destroy obsolete weapons that Moscow was going to replace with high-tech arms and provide salaries for Russian scientists.

The campaign website does not mention how Lugar had served as one of Obama’s mentors and had accompanied him on a 2005 trip to Russia, when Kremlin authorities briefly confiscated and reviewed Obama’s passport.

The Lugar-Obama relationship, now in the closet because of Lugar’s need for an extreme makeover, was once out in the open. “Old-school realist Richard Lugar, the five-term Republican senator from Indiana, has embraced new-school realist and rising star Barack Obama, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois,” noted the Washington Monthly back in September 2006 under the title, “Hoosier Daddy.”

It went on, “The relationship is admiring. ‘I very much feel like the novice and pupil,’ Obama has said of Lugar. And it’s warm. Lugar praises Obama’s ‘strong voice and creativity’ and calls him ‘my good friend.’ In short, the two agree on much and seem to genuinely like each other. Rather unusual in hyper-partisan Washington, these days.”

The “Republicans for Obama” website even features Lugar, noting in an article, “Republican Richard Lugar endorses Obama,” that the Senator had praised Obama’s foreign policy decision to engage America’s enemies.

No Place to Hide After the 2012 Election

By: AJ

This video series presents where we were just five short years ago.

No Place To Hide part 1

No Place To Hide part 2

No Place To Hide part 3

No Place To Hide part 4

The Obama regime and DHS have come a long way since then…

“We Are This Far From A Turnkey Totalitarian State” – Big Brother Goes Live September 2013

“George Orwell was right. He was just 30 years early.

In its April cover story, Wired has an exclusive report on the NSA’s Utah Data Center, which is a must read for anyone who believes any privacy is still a possibility in the United States: “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…. 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.”… The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013.” In other words, in just over 1 year, virtually anything one communicates through any traceable medium, or any record of one’s existence in the electronic medium, which these days is everything, will unofficially be property of the US government to deal with as it sees fit.

The codename of the project: Stellar Wind“…

An interesting look at Derek Smith; he was the CEO of Choicepoint (as shown in the video). Guess what this globalist is up to these days… global pre-science…

Derek V. Smith

Chairman and CEO, Institute of Global Prescience

“Derek Smith is Chairman and CEO of the Institute of Global Prescience, an interdisciplinary non-profit research, education and service organization dedicated to the pursuit of prescience – foreknowledge that anticipates global events and trends that are yet unseen. The Institute seeks to harness the passion of individuals to anticipate issues through clue detection engines that identify inflection points in technological, financial and social systems”…

Smith goes from CEO to futurist

“At the institute, students are using computer models to study such topics as whether bandwidth will be able to keep up with the growth of data flow and when the United States might elect its first atheist president.

Other topics include the future of cell phones, obesity, how attitudes will affect climate change and when the world will run out of oil”…

Take a look at the Institute of Global Prescience Board of Directors HERE. Notice the Federal and state government connections:

  • Amy Zimpfer, Regional Deputy Director, EPA
  • Anthony Eggert, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Chair California Air Resources Board
  • Jeffrey Byron, Commissioner, CEC
  • Paul Douglas, Supervisor, Renewable Procurement and Resource Planning, California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)
  • Trina Martynowicz, Clean Air Emerging Technologies and West Coast Collaborative, Clean Energy and Climate Change Office, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Google and PG&E (think ‘SMART Meters’) are also represented.

The Institute of Global Prescience is but one of many, many non-profits, NGO’s and individuals seeking to destroy our country from within.

Is it the intention of American tax-payers to have their hard earned dollars spent on the development of a turnkey Totalitarian State? Do we support massive government spending on programs that are in direct violation of our right to privacy under the 4th Amendment? Do Americans understand that current elected officials are facilitating and funding these endeavors with our tax dollars? Will enough Americans wake up, organize and vote the career politicians out of office in November?

The real revolution must take place at the ballot box. Until enough of us can vote against the career politicians who are aiding and abetting the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic, we will have no place to hide once they turn that key. What you do for the 2012 election will determine our fate and that of future generations.
