In the recovered footage posted here, citizen journalists get a chance to question Oliver North about REX 84 and COG, the supposed plan for the continuity of government in the wake of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. For daring to do so, these citizen journalists, bearing media credentials, were assaulted at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville by thugs who stole their camera memory cards, thus refusing to honor the First Amendment, as fascist thugs are wont to do. Questioning drug runner and convicted criminal Oliver North — not speculation, but documented historical fact — about REX 84 and and COG, members were told “this is not a press conference,” in other words, they had no right to ask North questions. Again, for daring to do so they were physically assaulted and robbed.
North essentially dismissed any assertion that he was instrumental in cooking up plans to suspend the Constitution. “North’s exercise, which reportedly contemplated possible suspension of the United States Constitution, led to questions being asked during the Iran-Contra Hearings. One concern then was that North’s plans for expanded internment and detention facilities would not be confined to ‘refugees’ alone,” writes Peter Dale Scott. As we know, North’s treasonous plan is alive and well under the Department of Homeland Security’s so-called ENDGAME, a plan that expands “a mission first articulated in the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798.” Scott notes: “Since 9/11 the Bush administration has implemented a number of inter-related programs, which had been planned for secretly in the 1980s under President Reagan. These so-called ‘Continuity of Government’ or COG proposals included vastly expanded detention capabilities, warrantless eavesdropping and detention, and preparations for greater use of martial law,” currently well established beyond mere proposals and fleshed out last year in PDD51.
PDD51, or NSPD-51, National Security Presidential Directive 51 (Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20) was signed into law on 9 May 2007 and was kept from Congress. “President Bush, without so much as issuing a press statement, on May 9 signed a directive that granted near dictatorial powers to the office of the president in the event of a national emergency declared by the president,” explains Jerome Corsi. As James Sterngold wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle a few days later, “senior government and military officials and other experts” had gathered behind closed doors to take “a step forward,” under the aegis of the Preventive Defense Project, to plot against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, including “the possible suspension of some civil liberties” under the bogus and entirely absurd prospect of “al Qaeda or some other terrorist group producing a working nuclear weapon” and attacking an American city.
“It is no surprise that these policies are being hatched behind closed doors, by elites, and military-intelligence operatives and other ‘architects of reality’, with no involvement from the citizenry. It is, however, yet another ominous sign of things to come,” writes Larry Chin. “Nothing has been done to undo the Patriot Act, or end such things as illegal domestic spying and surveillance of American citizens. Nothing will be.”
Congressman Peter DeFazio, featured in the video here, and who sits on the Homeland Security Committee, complained that he was refused access to the continuity of government plans, contrived behind closed doors. “I just can’t believe they’re going to deny a member of Congress the right of reviewing how they plan to conduct the government of the United States after a significant terrorist attack,” DeFazio said last July. “We’re talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America. I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee.” In response, Bush administration spokesman Trey Bohn declined to say why DeFazio was denied access: “We do not comment through the press on the process that this access entails. It is important to keep in mind that much of the information related to the continuity of government is highly sensitive.”
Indeed, the planned suspension of the Constitution and “some civil liberties” is so “highly sensitive” that journalist citizens will not be allowed to ask former government officials about it. In doing so, they may face what We Are Change faced in Louisville — physical assault and the theft of their camera memory cards. Such is a glimmer of what Americans can expect to face when COG, under the ludicrous pretext of al-CIA-duh attacking the “homeland” with a nuke, is implemented. Of course, as we know, there is no al-Qaeda and the fascists currently in control of the government are simply building the structure required to impose martial law.
