Who are these "humanoid" ALIENS that have invaded our country? What is it they want of America - of its citizens? Who is in danger from them? How have they "invaded" us? How is this possible? Is anyone safe?
Just some of the questions that must be asked and answered in 2012. Since the mid 80's they've been here, living amongst us as neighbors, workers, employers and most importantly serving as our lawmakers. Today as I look back upon the past four decades I am reminded of a cult-like TV series that came along years ago (actually at the same time our real "aliens" began their activities here in the US) and was made into a full length film and recently resurrected, remade and had some success. I am referring to the series "V" (Visitors)...
"A race of aliens arrive on Earth in a fleet of 50 huge, saucer-shaped motherships, which hover over major cities across the world. They reveal themselves on the roof of the United Nations building in New York City, appearing human but requiring special glasses to protect their eyes and having a distinctive resonance to their voices. Referred to as the Visitors, they reach out in friendship, ostensibly seeking the help of humans to obtain chemicals and minerals needed to aid their ailing world. In return, the Visitors promise to share their advanced technology with humanity. The governments of Earth accept the arrangement, and the Visitors, commanded by their leader John and his deputy Diana, begin to gain considerable influence with human authorities."
In the V series I find a deeply disturbing familiarity with what has really been happening here on the third rock from the sun. In the fictional TV production, the aliens all had smiles on their faces, spoke like humans and promised to cure our assorted diseases and provide us with a wealth of their technologies to make our lives better, easier and enrich us as a society and peoples of all nations. They bought off the media and used them to publish articles favorable to them and their agenda and ultimately put the citizens at ease with the aliens.
In reality these were invaders who used disinformation, propaganda, slick advertising and willing human collaborators to enable them to prevail in a diabolical agenda. They appealed to legislative bodies to get laws written and implemented that would make their victory easier and ensure success. They used citizens as workers for their needs, paying handsomely - or not - and scientist began to fall out of favor with society due to the work of the alien Visitors and their control of the media:
""Strange events begin to occur and scientists become objects of increasing media hostility. They experience government restrictions on their activities and movements. Others, particularly those keen on examining the Visitors more closely, begin to disappear or are discredited. Noted scientists confess to subversive activities; some of them exhibit other unusual behaviors, such as suddenly demonstrating an opposite hand preference to the one they were known to have.
"Scientists around the world continue to be persecuted, both to discredit them (as the part of the human population most likely to discover the Visitors' secrets) and to distract the rest of the population with a scapegoat to whom they could attribute their fears."
The general public was unaware of the actual purpose of the "visit" from these alien life forms and were encouraged to just go about their day to day lives and pay little attention to the presence of these "friendly" Galactic neighbors. These lizard like reptilians (as many would later say) "had their shit together" as they went about destroying our very world - while living among us. Many average citizens simply disappeared (early form of rendition, perhaps?)
A "Resistance" was formed by those who realized the dangers to earth from these alien invaders and most of the story revolves around this small group who spends the entire length of the series trying to convince citizens of the true intent of the aliens and the dangers they posed to society and the very planet. They fight, infiltrate and join up with alien "Fifth Columnists" to try and stop both the aliens and their human collaborators.
In reality we have been facing the same attacks by "ALIENS" living among us over the past 40 years. Oh, they didn't come from some far off planet or galaxy - they come from down the street, more likely from "across the tracks" and seem to be just like us; same features, characteristics, same six senses and they live and breathe the same air as the rest of us...but they are in fact truly Aliens. Their beliefs, actions and intentions are alien to us both as Americans and as a humanity. They have an agenda, they are corrupting both our politics and our government in pursuit of dominion over us and our governments - state and federal. They have a "plan" written out and followed religiously by they and their collaborators...
These ALIENS are legally here. They are citizens of the U.S. but as I said their beliefs and activities are anything but American. Their desire is to create their own world out of what is left of ours. They have worked diligently and quietly in secretive ways behind closed doors to change the landscape of our planet, our democracy and our politics...and today they have spread their filth from our shores to several other countries as they attempt to expand their dominionism to citizens of the world...
The first question of who these "ALIEN" beings are is easy:
"American Legislators Intentionally Enslaving a Nation"
Better known as -
The similarities between the ALEC cabal and the Visitors are difficult to ignore. The actions of both of these "aliens" - fictional and nonfictional - work to advance a hidden agenda through; control of the media, control over our planet's resources, enactment of laws benefiting them and their agenda, discrediting science, eliminating resistance, controlling government oversight, causing the disappearance of those who protest or resist and using the agencies and departments of our government to facilitate their agendas and control the masses through false assurances of "all is well".
What is it they want from America and us? Dominion. They seek control and ownership of our government, the wealth of the people of the middle class, cheap labor to work in their factories, make their products, less taxes so they can enjoy the vast wealth they've stolen from the middle and lower classes. Above all they see themselves as the privileged few destined to govern all of humanity, as their expansions into many foreign countries indicate.
If we look at the videos of just the past ALEC Protest in Phoenix in Nov-Dec 2011 we can readily see an apt comparison to the movie version of the protests against the Visitors - where citizens were controlled by earthly law enforcement officials upon the orders of the aliens. In Phoenix it was identical; lawmakers, corporate CEO's and representatives meeting behind closed and secure doors to develop new strategies to advance their agenda, while protesters and those opposing that agenda were contained and confronted by ALEC-paid law enforcement personnel using arrest powers, chemical sprays and the like to keep protesters out and the "elite" ALIENs safe and able to pursue their agenda:
Our ALEC ALIENs are working to change the landscape of democracy - entirely. They are determined to oppress workers, union members, teachers and every U.S. citizen through legislation that is written by the corporations and disseminated to become the law of the land in each state and at the federal level. They have formed "think tanks" that provide false information on our environment, climate change, how coal is "clean" energy, they have developed programs to indoctrinate our state and federal judges, prosecutors and religious leaders. They have repeatedly accused our best and most renowned scientists as being incorrect on the issues of global warming and other environmental issues. They also accuse our best economists of being incorrect, insisting that trickle-down-economics works and provide faux reports to support this propaganda.
This agenda and the combined efforts of the cabal are led by Charles and David Koch. Their fingerprints are found upon Heritage Foundation, Reason Foundation, George Mason University, CATO Institute, ALEC and initiatives impacting upon oil, gas production and drilling, global warming and environmental laws. This answers the question of who is running this organized cabal.
Collectively the cabal now own or control more than 80% of our MSM through positions on media outlet boards, internship programs, acquisition of all media genre by a handful of sympathetic conservative billionaires and their corporations and holding companies. Through this media control they are able to see to it that readers and viewers are provided what "they" want us to see. They have created laws to allow them the "use" of police, FBI, Homeland Security and armed private security to control us - as seen is Phoenix, New Orleans and without doubt will be used in their upcoming meetings in Charlotte, NC and Salt Lake City, UT.
Many of us have formed a "Resistance" to ALEC and the Koch led cabal. We have been out in public, attending meetings, writing, blogging and making every effort to awaken a sleepy nation of voters to what is going on around them. We have worked to expose ALEC and the members of their cabal, given radio and TV interviews about ALEC, published the secretive documents they have created that they are using to further enable their agenda. We have traveled from state to state to organize and set-up demonstrations and protests against ALEC and the Cabal at every one of their meetings in 2011 and are planning to do the same in 2012...yet not many are really aware of the existence, activities and dangers posed to us, our country and government by ALEC.
The MSM -as stated previously - is owned, lock, stock and barrel by the cabal through companies owned by the likes of Bloomberg, Fox, Ailes, Murdock, Gannett, Hearst, etc. Even the huge outpouring of citizen protests through the Occupy movement gets little press now - and before the violence by the authorities in NYC and mass arrests there, got no coverage by the MSM at all. This is how they are keeping the bulk of us unaware as to their activities and agenda.
Everything - except for the killing and eating of humans - that happened in "V" is similarly happening to us here in the U.S. today: control of the media, use of the government, control of the police, legislators and houses of Congress. Influence upon the Supreme Court from within (Roberts, Alito, Scalia, and Thomas). They control our banks, financial markets and investment houses and are pushing legislation to remove regulations that control the use of poisons and restrict contaminants. Laws to allow them access to and consumption of vital natural resources have been implemented, along with laws to allow them to exploit animals of any species while restricting our ability to protest without being arrested under the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act (look for NDAA to be used similarly to control other activism such as Occupy) as they have managed to push through recent legislation allowing for indefinite detention of Americans without a court hearing, defense counsel or even formal charges - and we all know it is only a matter of time or change of Administration until that law will be used to arrest and confine protesters and activists such as those of us actively protesting ALEC and the cabal.
I chose the fictional "V" as an apt comparison to what we are faced with as it does represent similar, real, non-fictional attacks upon us and our very way of life . I chose this venue as well because the ALEC co-founder, Paul Weyrich and his disciple, Eric Heubeck place great emphasis upon the use of the large screen and TV as a way of "capturing the imagination of the people". This is described in detail in the "Plan" I linked to in the intro:
"We must place a high value on art, because the most important thing any movement can do is capture the imagination of the people. One must give them dreams and ideals that have been put in terms they can understand, and that touch their hearts, as opposed to their rational minds. If we cannot capture the imaginations of our members, then we cannot expect our members to make great sacrifices for us. There must be a common repository of books and movies that everyone in our movement is familiar with and inspired by, so anyone can quote a line that will be recognized by everyone else. Young people already do this, only with the wrong movies, songs, and other products of popular culture.I use this "propagandistic image" they suggest as a medium against them. I believe doing it in this manner is not only appropriate but fitting.
"We have the example of schoolboys studying Homer in Ancient Greece. No Greek would be considered properly educated without an intimate familiarity with Homer. This taught Greeks what their ideals should be, how they should act, and gave them a common base of reference which united them as members of a society. The films Braveheart and Gladiator are possible examples from current popular culture that could serve a similar, but clearly more limited function.
"There is no medium more conducive to propagandistic purposes than the moving image, and our movement must learn to make use of this medium. A skillfully produced motion picture or television documentary has tremendous persuasive power. It has the power to bypass not only the old prejudices that have been assiduously cultivated by the Left over the past few decades, but also the innate skepticism of the viewer, the resistance to new ideas. Rational arguments simply do not have this power, and all arguments made in print tend to appeal to the rational, critical faculties of the mind to a greater or lesser degree.
"The visual image allows us to illustrate our beliefs and arguments to our members and others in highly compelling terms--we will be able to show all the examples of cultural decadence, irrationality and disingenuousness in public debate, combined with our commentary, selectively edited and arranged for maximum impact. It avoids the vagueness and generalizations that tend to characterize many conservative arguments. It also allows us to show what we think is right about our current culture--examples from movies or television that we as cultural conservatives support and are excited by. The large amount of capital needed for involvement in this medium is hard to come by, and those with the most creativity and skills in this area are by and large not cultural conservatives--but these hurdles must be overcome sooner or later.
Today they see a culmination of all their efforts on the horizon as they implement voter ID legislation, right to work laws, ending collective bargaining, privatizing education and the repeal of healthcare in those states where they hold majorities. They are hurriedly attempting to implement laws (and make it nearly impossible to repeal them should a Democratic majority replace them) favorable to the corporations while they have majorities in many of our states and the U.S. House. This is a genuine struggle of survival for unions, workers and American freedoms. If these conservatives prevail, it doesn't take much imagination to envision what the future will hold for all of us. They stand a chance of actually prevailing unless more and more of us learn about them and their agenda and fight them tooth and nail.
Myself, VLTP, Center for Media and Democracy, PFAW, Common Cause and all of our members belong to the anti-ALEC Resistance today. Together, we are all working towards abolishing ALEC and the Koch funded cabal and denying them dominion over us, our government and our nation. Since this resistance was formed over a year ago hundreds of articles, blogs, documentaries and videos have been published about ALEC and their conservative agenda and activities...yet the MSM has steadfastly refused to publish one story, article, video or documentary about ALEC and their tremendous influence at all levels of our government. Hundreds have turned out to protest at ALEC events with arrests, pepper spraying and injuries...and no "film at 11:00" so my assertion that the MSM is in "their" pocket is genuine and must be correct. How else could all this happen in a nation and be considered not "newsworthy" or go unnoticed by the media?
There is more yet to do by all of us - beginning with denying them any further involvement with our Congress, state assemblies and the laws that emanate from them. We have identified a majority of ALEC's corporate and more importantly, Legislative members. Their names can be found at www.alecexposed.org. They must be voted from office. ALEC's alumni in Congress have to face similar replacements. There are currently 100 of them and their names found here: http://www.alec.org/.... They have to go as they represent the worst threat to our democracy, are most dependent upon the corporate cash flowing into Congress and vote on behalf of their masters to keep themselves in positions of continuing power and wealth.
I have tried everything within my limited abilities to make all Americans aware of ALEC and the threat they represent to us as a people and a nation. Others are working equally as hard but it takes all of us to defeat this cabal and return our nation to one of middle class prosperity and a true democracy rather than heading for a total corporatocracy as ALEC and the cabal desire. Help spread the word and increase the size of our important Resistance movement....our very future depends upon your participation.
