Most Americans undoubtedly agree that the federal government cannot continue on its current spending and borrowing binge without wreaking economic havoc. But how must the binge be brought under control? One idea that has just gotten traction in the state of North Dakota is for the states to call for a constitutional convention for the purpose of proposing a National Debt Relief Amendment (NDRA) to the U.S. Constitution. On April 7, the North Dakota House of Representatives passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 4007 by a vote of 68 to 24, completing legislative action on the resolution and making their state the first in the nation to call for a constitutional convention to propose the NDRA.
The WikiLeaks release of secret U.S. State Department cables provides evidence that U.S. officials believed Russia is using Iran and Venezuela to provide sophisticated weapons, including MANPAD missiles, to the aid of international terrorist groups.
There is good reason to assume that Hizb ut-Tahrir al Islami (the Islamic Party, or HT), which recently called for The Fall of Capitalism, the Rise of Islam at its Chicago conference, has been co-opted at least in Central Asia by the Russian security service the FSB and SVR (successors of the renamed KGB) or was created outright to provide controlled opposition.
Americans have been conditioned to fear Islamic terrorism, but most Americans have been told little about how much of the international terror web was created by the former Soviet Union.
In what sounded like a news headline taken from the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, on June 28, 2010 the U.S. Department of Justice announced that the FBI had rounded up and arrested 10 individuals charged for espionage and conspiracy on behalf of the Russian government.
Senator Joseph McCarthy's accusations of Communist penetration in the State Department are proven to still be the case as the U.S. District Court Judge sentences former State Department employee Walter Kendall Myers and, his wife, Gwendolyn Meyers to life in prison after nearly 30 years of being Communist spies on behalf of Cuba's intelligence agency - the CuSI (formerly known as the DGI).
Incompatible with the concept of private property rights and the U.S. Constitution, the Copenhagen Treaty - if ratified and implemented - would result in nothing less than international communism, according to Lord Christopher Monckton of the U.K..
During a presentation at Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota on October 14, 2009, Lord Christopher Monckton warned Americans that President Obama would be signing the global warming treaty at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in early December, and that this treaty would impose a communist world government on the world.
Although the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) would threaten American sovereignty by giving the UN control of the oceans, ratification of the treaty is still a top priority of the Obama administration.
