[Correction: This is the submitted form of my column that appeared belatedly in the print edition of the 25may12 Union. I was informed of the delay due to a rush of political columns and articles on the new marijuana ordnance.]
In this election year all the weird stuff we’ve been hearing about seems to be coming at us more loudly and from every direction. Each piece by itself sounds like a purposed effort to drive America deeper into a place that most of us don’t want it to go; each piece sounds like the revelation of another quiet conspiracy at work. And when you gather all the pieces together, they don’t look like separate pieces at all, but to many they appear to fit into one big concerted effort from somewhere by some people who are working together.
And what makes it even more curious is that the individual pieces have been promoted by people from all political parties – most certainly including Republicans and Democrats. So we can’t just point our finger at one side and blame the whole thing on them.
We start with the International Democrat Union (idu.org) founded in 1983 by the likes of Margaret Thatcher and Republican Party National Committee’s John Allen, and joined by VPOTUS George HW Bush. It is a self-declared union of ‘centre and centre right’ parties with high sounding principles that include abiding by the anti-constitutional UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and calls for unspecified obligations between nations. Who knows what the IDU does, but it meets every four years near the Republican Convention.
Then we have the notorious UN Agenda21 initiative to which President GHW Bush signed us up (http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/res_agenda21_00.shtml). Reading its tenets and principles calls for a one world in which human activity is restricted to a fraction of the earth’s land surface, and everyone belongs to a wholesome, sustainable, inclusive, happy society of peacefully like-minded and sensitive people. The progressive principles of this future UN-dominated world are being implemented through something called the ICLEI Global (iclei.org) which organizes “local governments for sustainability” and already has over 550 US cities as members.
Next we come to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 with its draconian Title X, Subtitle D. There its anti-terrorism provisions give the President powers to do all kinds of spooky and unconstitutional things like constructing a gulag of stalags in the US for forcibly interning thousands of US citizens when the need arises.
In the meantime, others call attention to what appears as a coordinated policy to bring the US to its knees by spending us into oblivion – an intended tactic by the hidden ruling elite to weaken the country so that it will be more compliant to joining other nations willing to surrender their sovereignty to the UN. This claim is already in the works through the ongoing negotiation of ‘sneaky treaties’ covering submission to an international criminal court (making US leaders liable for prosecution), remitting offshore revenues for UN redistribution, UN small arms control/confiscation, forced funding the care of children in poor countries, and UN regulated outer space conduct. All such treaties would be binding once accepted.
But wait, we’re not done yet. Should there be any public resistance to this brave new Amerika, then FEMA, with its United States Police, is said to have already built and is staffing hundreds of ‘facilities’ to house mega-multitudes of anti-social activists and non-believers. Some call these concentration camps, others say that they are simply for ‘re-educating’ the socially misguided. What’s most interesting here is the discovery of a February 2010 Army field manual, FM 3-39.40 - Internment and Resettlement Operations that we can now download. This 325 page tome, written for detaining foreigners and US citizens, makes for some real intense reading.
Finally, we recall that a ‘theory’ is a unified explanation of past observations and data that can also be used for understanding and predicting future observations and data, and by these predictions its validity is assessed. Oh my!

[14may12 update] And now to all this we add the rumors of the DHS fomenting a "civil war" in America to call for a "clamp down" by the government and the postponement of this November's elections. All this in preparation to create a worldwide crisis this summer that would make all the people demand the security that can only be provided by an authoritarian global government. The developing report on this is put out by an outfit called The Northeast Intelligence Network. Hard to think of a more sinister rumor of conspiracy than this, but it just keeps on building.
[21may12 update] The above conspiracy now has a name - "The Reichstag Event". In a circulating email sourced from Canada it claims that "The Obama agents, through the DHS and other assorted colluders, are plotting a major ‘Reichstag’ event to generate racial riots and produce the justification for martial law, delaying the November 2012 elections, possibly indefinitely, a DHS whistleblower informed the Canada Free Press on Tuesday."
