Bush Praetorian Guard for Mexico's Consulates?
It's hard to top VDARE.COM's syndicated columnist Paul Craig Roberts in the doom-and-gloom department . . . especially the cold slap-in-the-face of reality delivered in his January 23 column Unfathomed Dangers in Patriot Act Reauthorization, in which he broke the story about "a provision in the "Patriot Act" [that] creates a new federal police force with power to violate the Bill of Rights."
But, amazingly enough, there's even more to the Department of Homeland Security's new uniformed division of United States Secret Service police…which is indeed proposed in Section 605 (and 3056A) of the Patriot Act [PDF] reauthorization.
Brace yourself. This DHS/USSS Praetorian Guard also doubles as…a security force for foreign consulates on American soil.
Consider this scenario:
Reacting to manufactured intelligence reports of racism, jingoism, nationalism, and/or the dreaded scourge of "xenophobia," the President of the United States assigns the new uniformed Secret Service police to guard all Mexican Consulates nationwide indefinitely. The new federal police also provides protection for the infamous "mobile consulates," a favorite of the Treason Lobby's banking wing, which hand out the Matricula Consular card to illegal aliens from sea to shining sea.
Interestingly enough, both the mobile and fixed consulates seize the opportunity to transform their Matricula Consular operations overnight into "help centers" to facilitate nationwide "registration" of their countrymen for the future U.S. "guest worker" amnesty . . . all under the ever-vigilant protection of the uniformed Secret Service guards . . . just to make sure everything goes smoothly.
That couldn't ever happen in America, you say? Think again. The authorization is right in the new Patriot Act! According to Section 605 – Sec. 3056A ("Powers, authorities, and duties of United States Secret Service Uniformed Division"):
". . . the United States Secret Service Uniformed Division shall perform such duties as the Director, United States Secret Service, may prescribe in connection with the protection of the following:
- "(7) Foreign diplomatic missions located in metropolitan areas (other than the District of Columbia) in the United States where there are located twenty or more such missions headed by full-time officers, except that such protection shall be provided only. . .
- "(8) Foreign consular and diplomatic missions located in such areas in the United States, its territories and possessions, as the President, on a case-by-case basis, may direct." [VDARE.COM emphasis]
It's all there in black and white.
But, for God's sake, why is it there?
Generally, I agree with Paul Craig Roberts that provisions like these are mysteriously popping up in legislation now in order to help quell future dissent.
But this goes further. The ultimate motive here is protecting the global elitist goal of assuring a total and complete integration of the United States into a North American Community through trade agreements and the gradual erosion of American sovereignty.
Given the threat of warrantless arrest powers for the new federal police, the DHS/USSS consular guards could quickly be brought in to squash dissent from any pesky but peaceful patriotic protesters who just might happen to show up outside the offices of foreign consulates in the future.
With such open-ended authority, the possibilities are endless.
As Roberts wrote:
"Like every law in the US, this law also will be expansively interpreted and abused. It has dire implications for freedom of association and First Amendment rights. We can take for granted that the new federal police will be used to suppress dissent and to break up opposition. The Brownshirts are now arming themselves with a Gestapo."
So the enforcers of the New World Order in North America may not be wearing powder blue United Nations helmets after all.
These facilitators of "tolerance" for foreign meddling, Open Borders and illegal alien amnesty just might be sporting new Secret Service uniforms, serving under the direction of the President of the United States and the Homeland Security Secretary.
So, for all of the peaceful Minuteman Project volunteers out there across this great land, enjoy your First Amendment freedom to assemble peaceably while you still can.
Incredibly, the threat of warrantless arrest for political speech is now real here in the U.S. today.
