Just recently RAND Corporation, a research arm of the U. S. military, released a study titled A Stability Police Force For The United States: Justification And Creating U. S. Capabilities. In this research RAND concluded that this new force would be a hybrid between law enforcement and military. They would create this new force from within the U. S Marshal Service. Their role in the Marshal Service would be as stated in the study, “in a range of tasks such as crowd and riot control, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), and investigations of organized criminal groups”. In the RAND study the size of the unit would be relatively small somewhere around the range of two-6,000 personnel. Yet after further reading the study we find out that this new unit could, as in their words, “could be increased by augmenting it with additional federal, state, or local police from the United States”. Wow, talk about big brother getting even bigger.
The powers that would be given to the Federal government, if this study were to become reality, would be overwhelming and unconstitutional. It is my understanding that for the most part of our country’s history (at least until President Theodore Roosevelt Supreme Court corrupted a time long understanding of State rights over Federal rights) as stated in Wikipedia, “…. Congress has limited powers granted in the Constitution, the Federal government does not have a general police power, as the states do. The exceptions are laws regarding Federal property and the military. On the other hand, Congress was granted by the New Deal Court a broad quasi-police authority from its power to regulate interstate commerce and raise and spend revenue.” So much for the 10th Amendment which basically guarantees the powers that were not granted to the federal government were therefore given to the states. Establishing a police force was never granted to the Federal Government. That power was considered best to be given to states and their local officials. In September 17, 1997 Congressman Ron Paul stated in his speech to the House Speaker in the House of Representatives in Congress over the recent broadening powers given to the Federal Government that,” Under the constitution, there was never meant to be a Federal police force. Even an FBI limited only to investigations was not accepted until this century.” It was the intentions of our founders to limit the power of government to create a more free society.
What, if anything, does the government or the Obama Administration, hope to achieve in creating such a powerful police? One can only be reminded about what Germany did before World War II. Tell me if this does not give you a moment of pause. First, in order to get Germany out of a financial depression, Hitler quickly past legislation that gave his government power to take over the banking system. Next, Hitler lead the government to take over most of Germany’s industrial industries in hopes to lessen the unemployment rate. Last, but not least, Hitler took over all police powers in the country and created the Gestapo. By doing this Hitler guaranteed his grasp over his country and the Nazi Party began its long, but failed, crusade in taking over the world. I hope that history does not repeat itself since it does cause quite a mess.
You may think that the story of President Obama electing to have John Holdren as the head of his Science and Technology Policy department as old news, but with the recent fear mongering of the swine flu, global warming, and other such events, I believe it is very much still a live story in need of more research. At first glance in researching John Holdren you will find that in the 1970’s he was a major adjocate for compulsory abortions in the U.S. and a “Planetary Regime”.
Having co-authored Ecoscience, it was well known John Holdren’s stance on population control and the repercussions thought at the time of letting people breed freely. The methods to unknowingly sterilize a population included methods tried by the Nazi’s, Soviet’s, and communists such as adding infertility drugs to a national food or water supply, and forced abortion to name a few. It also goes into a radical and unrealistic stance on what could happen if population were to get out of control in reference to resources and environmental impact. Like I said before, this is all very easy to find.
Now, the not so easy to find was the recent opinions of Mr. Holdren. In 1995 he also co-authored an essay called, The Meaning of Sustainability: Biogeophysical Aspects, published by the World Bank on the need to eventually have “world of zero net physical growth” and “population limitation” to sustain economic activity (ummm…very interesting considering the current economic events). Now suddenly, upon being appointed to a position in the White House his opinions change? In his White House interview he explained as stated by www.wnd.com, “when asked if he still felt population control was appropriate, health care and opportunities for women, as well as education, naturally create families more likely to have fewer children, thus solving the potential problems of population growth.” I don’t think so. Someone holding so tightly to a belief for so many years would not let it go so easily. Not to mention, Obama knows Holdren’s past, works, and beliefs having both gone to Harvard. Obama is no dummy, he would not have manged to get elected as President of the United States of America had that been the case.
In conclusion, the question in many minds at this time is if there is a connection between John Holdren’s past and the current events with the economic instability (made worse by the stimulus and will be more so by a passing of health care reform), myths of global warming, and the fear mongering of the H1N1 virus. One would have to wonder, with his new found powers as Science Czar and only having to answer to the President of the United States, not obligated to answer to Congress, John Holdren definitely warrants more scrutiny and a watchful eye on his handling of his office. Our founders would be rolling in their graves if they knew that the President gave such unlimited powers to an unelected official.
