Obama`s Council Of Governors And The “Remaking” Of America

Regular readers of this column will doubtless recall my
recent column in which I reported on the new Council of
Governors (CG) that President Barack Obama has created.
See my column


Well, Obama`s CG is quickly beginning to take shape.
According to the Associated Press (AP),

"President Barack Obama has selected Missouri Gov. Jay
Nixon to serve on an advisory council for defense and
national security issues.

"Nixon was one of 10 governors named Thursday [February
4, 2009] by Obama to the newly created Council of

The 10 governors (and one of them is not even a State
governor) selected by Obama are:

  • *Governor James Douglas (R-Vermont) *Co-chair

  • *Governor Chris Gregoire (D-Washington) *Co-chair

  • Governor Brad Henry (D-Oklahoma)

  • Governor Jay Nixon (D-Missouri)

  • Governor Martin O`Malley (D-Maryland)

  • Governor Janice Brewer (R-Arizona)

  • Governor Bob McDonnell (R-Virginia)

  • Governor Michael Rounds (R-South Dakota)

  • Governor Beverly Perdue (D-North Carolina)

  • Governor Luis G. Fortuno (R-Puerto Rico)

As I have already written, the creation of a CG should
be of serious concern to all liberty-loving Americans.

That more of us are not as concerned as we should be can
be traced to the mistaken belief that the American
people have nothing to fear from an overreaching federal
government. This is pure folly! As I have said many
times, we have far more to fear from Washington, D.C.,
than from Iran, Iraq, North Korea, or any other
potential terrorist state. It is Washington, D.C.—and
Washington, D.C., alone—that has the power, opportunity,
and propensity to squash our freedom and sell us into

As Kurt Nimmo reports:

"In other words, with the stroke of a pen, Obama
significantly increased the ongoing effort to federalize
the states and take control of the National Guard in
violation of the now more or less moribund Posse
Comitatus Act. Posse Comitatus was effectively annulled
by the 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization
Act. The act provides the president with power to
declare martial law under revisions to the Insurrection
Act and take charge of United States National Guard
troops without state governor authorization. Parts of
the act were repealed in 2008."

report at Infowars.com.

What most Americans fail to realize (thanks to a
national propaganda press corps that refuses to reveal
the conspiratorial machinations of America`s ruling
class, which, by and large, is totally disconnected
from—or unaccountable to—elected officeholders:
especially those in Congress) is that the subdivision of
the United States into a 10-region country (thereby
minimizing or even negating the sovereignty and
authority of the 50 independent and autonomous states)
goes all the way back to the Richard Nixon

In response to pressure from the United Nations,
President Richard Nixon issued

Executive Order #11647

on February 10, 1972, which carved up the United States
into 10 "standard
Federal regions."

For the doubters out there, Wikipedia has a rather
detailed web page mentioning the federal 10-region
breakdown of the United States.

See the

Wikipedia entry here

See the

map here.

Still not convinced? Try a casual web search of the 10
US regions and you will quickly discover that each major
federal agency, such as the EPA, OSHA, DOT, FEMA, etc.,
has their agency already divided into these 10 regions.
As an example, here is

the official district map for FEMA

Commenting on the creation of the 10
regions initiated by President Nixon, CuttingEdge.org
director David Bay very astutely said,
"This regional
system is also apparently a military structure."

This is a very insightful observation, because I`m sure
this was said long before President Obama took office,
yet, that is exactly what his CG accomplishes. It grants
federal executive power to these 10 governors—with the
specific responsibility of providing leadership and
direction to the National Guard and related homeland
military activities. And is it any coincidence that the
number of governors appointed to this new CG is exactly
10? Even more telling is the fact that the 10 governors
come from each US region (the governor of Puerto Rico
represents Region 2), except for Region 5, and guess
what? Region 5 is President Obama`s region!

Now, get this: the only region that has two governors
represented on the CG (making up for Region 5`s lack of
a representative—who will be Obama himself, no doubt) is
Region 3.

And put this in your pipe and smoke it: the two
governors from Region 3 are from Maryland and Virginia,
which are the two states that border Washington, D.C.
But all of this is mere coincidence, right?

See the

map on the EPA web site here.

So, here is the list of the Council of Governors, as it
coincides with the respective 10 regions. If you know
anything about what is going on, you should easily be
able to see the logic of how and why these governors
were selected.

Obviously, the two basic criteria would be 1) The
location of necessary government infrastructure,
facilities, personnel, etc., combined with 2) The
compliant attitude and overall disposition of the
governor selected. Here is how it looks:

Region 1: Governor Douglas of Vermont

Region 2: Governor Fortuno of Puerto Rico

Region 3: Governor O`Malley of Maryland and Governor
McDonnell of Virginia.

These are necessary, as these are the two border states
of Washington, D.C.

Region 4: Governor Perdue of North Carolina

Region 5: President Barack Obama of Illinois

Region 6: Governor Henry of Oklahoma

Region 7: Governor Nixon of Missouri

Region 8: Governor Rounds of South Dakota

Region 9: Governor Brewer of Arizona

Region 10: Governor Gregoire of Washington State

And while it is true that President Jimmy Carter revoked
President Nixon`s
"Federal Regional Council"
(what Nixon`s Executive
Order created in 1972) in 1979, the concept never died.
It was merely incorporated into other Executive Orders.
And there can be no question that President Obama`s CG
certainly builds on Nixon`s initial

Neither is it a coincidence that Missouri Governor Jay
Nixon is included in the list of 10 governors appointed
to the CG.

Why? Does anyone remember the MIAC flap in the State of
Missouri last year? I sure do, because I (along with Ron
Paul and Bob Barr) was listed in the MIAC report as
being a potential dangerous militia member or terrorist.

And anyone who supported or voted for the three of us
was similarly maligned in the MIAC report.

Plus, the report also targeted people who opposed any of
the following as being potential dangerous militia

  • The New World Order

  • The United Nations

  • Gun Control

  • The violation of Posse Comitatus

  • The Federal Reserve

  • The Income Tax

  • The Ammunition Accountability Act

  • A possible Constitutional Convention (Con Con)

  • The North American Union

  • Universal Service Program

  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

  • Abortion on demand

  • Illegal immigration

Remember, this was an
official Missouri
State Police report
that was distributed to all
Missouri State law enforcement officers.

And Governor Jay Nixon authorized and strongly defended
the MIAC report!

Later, of course, Governor Nixon and other State leaders
were forced to withdraw the report, due to immense
public pressure from both the citizens of Missouri and
angry Americans all across the country.

I have a web page set aside with all the pertinent
information regarding the MIAC fiasco, including the
most recent updates,


Plus, here are my previous 3 columns regarding the MIAC

Now we learn that President Obama has appointed this
very same Governor Jay Nixon to the newly formed Council
of Governors. Doubtless, Nixon`s support for the MIAC
report brought him into the good graces of this Marxist
President, who, in his inaugural address, pledged to "remake America."

Without a doubt, the newly established Council of
Governors is helping Obama do just that.

Of course, the big question is not, Is America being

It most certainly is—and it started long before Obama
moved into the White House.

The question is, Will this
America be something we can live with?
