On February 8, Karen DeYoung, writing for the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post, reported that “President Obama plans to order a sweeping overhaul of the National Security Council, expanding its membership and increasing its authority to set strategy across a wide spectrum of international and domestic issues.”

According to national security adviser and former Marine commandant James L. Jones, the “world that we live in has changed so dramatically in this decade that organizations that were created to meet a certain set of criteria no longer are terribly useful.” Obama will issue a presidential directive that will “expand the NSC’s reach far beyond the range of traditional foreign policy issues and turn it into a much more elastic body.”
So dangerous is the world now, according to the argument offered by Jones, the NSC will apparently encompass “the Energy Department, Commerce Department and Treasury, all the law enforcement agencies, the Drug Enforcement Administration, all of those things.” After Obama issues his directive, the NSC will strive to “embrace a broader membership” and roll these government agencies into the National Security State, initially created in 1947 when Congress passed the National Security Act. In addition to the NSC, this legislation created the CIA and institutionalized under the rubric of “national security” the justification for new weapons systems, huge military expenditures, and military interventions in the third world.
“National Security State institutions like the NSC and CIA are also dangerous because they greatly expand the power of the executive branch and thereby threaten the constitutional system of checks and balances,” writes Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer in his book, Brave New World Order. “The institutions that make up the National Security State apparatus are supposedly set up to defend national security and the integrity of the state. However, they often abuse power, violate national and international laws, and may actually erode the democracy they supposedly defend. Senate investigations led by Frank Church in 1975 detailed numerous illegal activities conducted by the CIA against U.S. and foreign individuals and groups. The recent Iran-Contra scandal… offers frightening testimony to abuses of power by the National Security Council, including numerous violations of the U.S. Constitution.”
It appears the ruling elite will now expand these abuses of power and numerous violations of the U.S. Constitution far beyond the Defense Department and “a little bit of the State Department,” as Jones characterizes it. In one fell swoop, Obama may expand the reach of the Pentagon, the CIA, and the military-industrial complex president Eisenhower warned against in his 1961 farewell speech to the nation.
New NSC directorates will deal with such department-spanning 21st-century issues as cybersecurity, energy, climate change, nation-building and infrastructure. Many of the functions of the Homeland Security Council, established as a separate White House entity by President Bush after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, may be subsumed into the expanded NSC, although it is still undetermined whether elements of the HSC will remain as a separate body within the White House.
In other words, with a stroke of Obama’s pen, the military and intelligence policy-making and control functions of the shadow government operating under cover of the NSC — unanswerable to Congress or the American people — will dictate energy policy, computer network security, “climate change” mandates, national infrastructure, and the homeland security surveillance gird.
It should be noted that the secret 5412 Committee (now known simply as the Special Group), responsible for black operations, is a component of the NSC.
According to the research of David Guyatt, (The Secret Gold Treaty: The Truth Behind WW II Gold, Nazi Plunder & Elite Plans To Control Our Financial Future) the
5412 Committee, which met in Room 40 at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, became the de facto parallel government of the United States, a fact that was later acknowledged by President Eisenhower in his speech regarding the dangers of the “military industrial complex.” At the heart of the US secret government lay a doctrine that was “driven by the twin goals of reinforcing the private interests that largely control the state and maintaining an international environment in which they can prosper.” The broader interests of the people are not permitted to enter the equation, which is reserved entirely for men of wealth and power.
As the Post story notes, Jones’s deputy, John O. Brennan, a CIA veteran who serves as presidential adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, “will review options for the homeland council, including its responsibility for preparing for and responding to natural and terrorism-related domestic disasters.”
On January 27, Paul Joseph Watson, writing for Prison Planet, reported on a bill introduced in Congress authorizing the Department of Homeland Security to set up a network of FEMA camp facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency. “Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to ‘meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,’ an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse,” wrote Watson. Obama’s directive will pass operational responsibility for this proposed network of internment camps from the DHS directly to the parallel government in the NSC.
The DHS plan — soon to become a plan implemented by the NSC and the Special Group — followed on the heels of the Pentagon’s announcement late last year that it “expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe,” as the Washington Post reported on December 1, 2008. “The Pentagon’s plan calls for three rapid-reaction forces to be ready for emergency response by September 2011. The first 4,700-person unit, built around an active-duty combat brigade based at Fort Stewart, Ga., was available as of Oct. 1, said Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander of the U.S. Northern Command.”
According to Bert B. Tussing, director of homeland defense and security issues at the U.S. Army War College’s Center for Strategic Leadership, the new Pentagon approach “breaks the mold” by assigning an active-duty combat brigade to the Northern Command for the first time.
It now appears the ruling elite have plans to break many more molds as they continue their slow motion coup d’état against the Constitution and the American people. Obama was installed to add finishing touches to the globalist plan to decimate the Constitution, destroy the sovereignty of the United States, impose a military dictatorship — of particular importance to the parallel government as the engineered implosion of the global economy commences — and reduce the greatest nation on earth to third world status.
