The secret methods of Democrat politics By Lowell Ponte https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/10/liberal_mind_control_the_secret_methods_of_democrat_politics.h tml Some names, terms, authors, books in article: Aldous Huxley/Brave New World, Adam Smith/The Wealth of Nations, Richard Thaler-Cass Sustein/Nudge, Craig R Smith-Lowell Ponte/The Great WIthdrawal Excerpt: Most people do not know that Barack Obama had a kind of "Office of Thought Control" and team of mind manipulation experts in his White House. And most know nothing of the sinister techniques Mr. Obama and his Progressive comrades used, and continue to use, to sway us. This is how Progressive politics now works… To shape people's actions and decisions, Thaler and Sunstein write, one should frame a "choice architecture" that gives only limited choices as a way to herd people toward what you want. Apply peer pressure by claiming that neighbors and others are already doing what you secretly want. Use "priming," as we wrote, by "subtly programming the mind with trigger words, concepts, images and cues that can move a person towards a particular response and decision." Such "nudges," we wrote, could be used openly and paternalistically to help people, as Thaler prefers. But they "could also be used for what MIT radical intellectual Noam Chomsky calls 'the manufacture of consent,' to manipulate people into assenting to whatever the State or ruling political party wishes. A 'nudge' is a kind of push, and this push could come to shove." https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/10/liberal_mind_control_the_secret_methods_of_democrat_politics.h tml 2021/04/16 UAE Ports purchase considered in 2006; Dropped that year; Discussion of UAE link to 9/11 UAE and 9/11 2017/09/14 UAE: Financial and Transit Hub of 9/11 Terror.

Jamie Merrill. The Qatar crisis has sparked a fierce war of words over UAE's alleged involvement in the devastating New York attacks https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/revealed-911-families-could-sue-uae-alleged-role-attacks Kristen Breitweiser, who lost her husband Ronald in the 9/11 attacks, told MEE that the UAE is "on the radar" of victims' families and their legal teams. "The UAE needs some attention and our lawyers need to start delving into it in a more concerted way," said Breitweiser, a high-profile activist and member of the "Jersey Girls", four women from New Jersey whose husbands were killed on 9/11 and went on to campaign for a national commission of inquiry into the attack. "I'm simply going to say this - to me, their hands don't seem clean and I think their role in the 9/11 attacks and their connection to the hijackers bears further UAE and US Ports Wikipedia Dubai Ports World Controversy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai_Ports_World_controversy The Dubai Ports World controversy began in February 2006 and rose to prominence as a national security debate in the United States. At issue was the sale of port management businesses in six major U.S. seaports to a company based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and whether such a sale would compromise port security. The controversy pertained to management contracts of six major United States ports. The purchaser was DP World (DPW), a state-owned company in the UAE. The contracts had already been foreign-owned, by Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O), a British firm taken over by DPW (completed in March 2006). Although the sale was approved by the executive branch of the United States Government, various United States political figures argued that the takeover would compromise U.S. port security. U.S. President George Bush argued vigorously for the approval of the deal, claiming that the delay sends the wrong message to U.S. allies. Legislation was introduced to the United States Congress to delay the sale. On March 8, 2006 the United States House Committee on Appropriations voted 62–2 to block the deal. Despite President's Bush previous intention to veto the legislation, DP World announced on March 9, 2006 that they will drop the deal and transfer operations to a U.S entity to defuse the situation.[1] Dubai Ports World eventually sold P&O's American operations to American International Group's asset management division, Global Investment Group for an undisclosed sum.[2] The company is now known as Ports America.[3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai_Ports_World_controversy CBS 2006/03/09 Dubai Company Gives Up On Ports Deal https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dubai-company-gives-up-on-ports-deal/ SFGate 2006 issue: Dubai Ports World: Dubai International Capital 2006 purchase from UK London-based Doncasters Group 2006/03/08--https://www.sfgate.com/politics/article/Bush-and-the-Ports-The-Honeymoon-Is- Over-2502613.php Excerpt: a Muslim country, ally or not, having control of 21 U.S. ports in a time of war. When the story broke that the Bush administration had approved a British-owned company's sale of U.S. port operations to one headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, all hell broke loose. The company at hand, Dubai Ports World, is owned by the United Arab Emirates, so not only would we be handing over operations of our ports to yet another foreign company, but also to a foreign government. The fact that the deal was approved without the legally authorized 45-day investigation normally required when acquisition by a foreign government and security concerns are involved, certainly doesn't help. Then there was President Bush's claim that he knew nothing about the deal until after it had been approved, which wasn't terribly reassuring...While the company itself may be reputable, what's to stop infiltrators from securing jobs and smuggling in weapons of mass destruction? The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was so concerned about this possibility that it filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government to block the ports deal. New Jersey filed a similar suit the day before....As it stands, China, Denmark, Japan, South Korea and Singapore have control over terminals in 36 American port cities. 2006/03/08--https://www.sfgate.com/politics/article/Bush-and-the-Ports-The-Honeymoon-Is- Over-2502613.php 2021/04/08 Townhall dot com 2021/04/06 Conservative Group Spotlights 'Dark Money' Ties to Biden's Judicial Nominees.

We've seen this before at the Justice Department, which Congress earlier this year scolded for "shortchanging" alleged victims of Bank of America and Citibank the same way. Justice funneled at least $150 million into a slush fund for Democratic interests, unconstitutionally avoiding Congress.a Department of Justice 2017/06/07 Attorney General Jeff Sessions Ends Third Party Settlement Practice Press Release Number: 17-613 https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/attorney-general-jeff-sessions-ends-third-party-settlement-practice Excerpt: Attorney General Sessions today issued the attached memo to all Department of Justice components and 94 United States Attorney’s Offices prohibiting them from entering into any agreement on behalf of the United States in settlement of federal claims or charges that directs or provides for a settlement payment to non-governmental, third parties that were not directly harmed by the conduct. “When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people— not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Unfortunately, in recent years the Department of Justice has sometimes required or encouraged defendants to make these payments to third parties as a condition of settlement. With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.” Under the last Administration, the Department repeatedly required settling parties to pay settlement funds to third party community organizations that were not directly involved in the litigation or harmed by the defendant’s conduct. Pursuant to the Attorney General’s memorandum, this practice will immediately stop. 2021/04/06, 09 (On 04/06 the summary was added to the article’s basic insert) La Raza Human Events dot com (2006 dated but applicable in 2021) 2006/04/07 The Truth about La Raza. By C Norwood Charles Whitlow Norwood Jr https://humanevents.com/2006/04/07/emexclusive-emthe-truth-about-la-raza/ SUMMARY OF ARTICLE The Truth About 'La Raza' By cnorwood See Human Events-2006 full article at bottom of La Raza section or follow link NAMES La Raza (The RaCE) continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa National Council de La Raza — the Council of “The Race”. Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s THEIR PLATFORM “Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” MEChA was in fact reported to be one of the main organizers of those street demonstrations we witnessed over the past weeks. That helps explain why those hordes of illegal immigrants weren’t asking for amnesty — they were demanding an end to U.S. law, period. Unlike past waves of immigrants whosought to become responsible members of American society, these protesters reject American society because they have been taught that America rightfully belongs to them As Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying: “The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.” Money directed at La Raza got $15.2 million in federal grants of which $7.9 million was in U.S. Department of Education grants for Charter Schools from a senator an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for “housing reform WHAT TO DO ABOUT LA RAZA 1. Denounce the motto “For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada,” as repugnant, racist, and totally incompatible with American society or citizenship. 2. Acknowledge the right of all Americans to live wherever they choose in the U.S. without segregation. 3. Commit to sponsorship of nationwide educational programs to combat racism and anti-Semitism in the Hispanic community. 4. Denounce and sever all ties with MEChA and any other organizations with which they have ever been associated which held to the racist doctrines held by MEChA. 5. Acknowledge the internationally recognized borders of the U.S., the right of the citizens of the U.S. to determine immigration policy through the democratic process, and the right of the U.S. to undertake any and all necessary steps to effectively enforce immigration law and defend its border against unauthorized entry. 6. Repudiate all claims that current American territory rightfully belongs to Mexico https://humanevents.com/2006/04/07/emexclusive-emthe-truth-about-la-raza/ 2021/04/04 MSNBC 2021/03/25 There are a lot of lies about Biden's 'border crisis.'

An immigrant-friendly nation, it has welcomed grateful immigrants from around the world into its system. Now, it faces something something new. The word immigration implies people moving across a national border into another country. In contrast, migration simply means people moving. No border! It supports the vision of a borderless global society, and it intentionally clashes with national sovereignty, laws and independence.Thomas Sowell summarizes some of its current problems: "Under affirmative action, combined with amnesty, [illegals] would have preferences in jobs and other benefits. Those who set up their own businesses would be entitled to preferences in getting government contracts. Their children would be able to get into college ahead of the children of American citizens with better academic qualifications. ... [I]f an illegal alien gets stopped for going through a red light... in many communities the cop is forbidden to arrest him.... Under a provision recently passed by the Senate, illegal aliens who forged Social Security cards not only get a pass, they get to collect Social Security benefits. ... We have seen what havoc such notions and practices have created after mass immigration under 'guest worker' programs in Europe...." [6] "Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each." [7] "The immigration reform bill now under congressional consideration would grant amnesty to some 10 million illegal immigrants.... CIRA would transform the United States socially, economically and politically. Within two decades, the character of the nation would differ dramatically from what exists today."[8] http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/006/migration-un.htm Arizona Washington Examiner 2021/03/31 Republicans file second lawsuit against Arizona GOP and Kelli Ward over state party elections by Haley Victory Smith https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/republicans-lawsuit-arizona-gop-ward-state-party Montana BizPac Review dot com 2021/03/20 Montana GOP lawmaker ‘outraged’ over report Biden admin plans to relocate migrants to northern border.
