[This is a SPECIAL REPORT on the State of the Union. It will be presented in installments over the next few weeks. The report will be published in its entirety separately. It is an extensive look into the murder of liberty, the rise of tyranny, and the end of the age under National Socialism.]
A look at recent agency and bureau creations in America sheds a revealing light on creeping National Socialism that no longer has to slide silently onto the American stage. It’s now boot marching. (Intro)
Appointing Agencies and Bureaus
Essentially, there are two reasons National Socialists leaders begin rapidly creating government agencies. Firstly, it gives the impression that government leaders are providing solutions to the people’s problems. In fact, they do nothing to solve problems and actually steal more freedom and more wealth from the people and tighten government’s grip on them.
Take note of recent creations and proposed federal agencies:
The Trade Enforcement Unit (TEU) Announced in the January, 2012 State of The Union Address, the TEU is said to be focused outward on fair trade issues; especially with China. The TEU will actually be focused inward, and work in concert with additional ‘individual mandates’ that will follow from the Obamacare interpretation of the U.S. Commerce clause (the Supreme Court has been packed to approve it).
It will function as a consumer enforcement unit dictating which products and services people must buy, and denying them the goods and services they need or desire. Key word: enforcement, and we have a recent example that bears this assertion out.
In 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act was passed in response to unsafe children’s products that were manufactured in China and sold in America. The law was originally written as to apply to new products. It was focused outward at imports; stopping products such as toys containing lead and hazardous playpens from entering American stores and being sold to consumers.
Only a year later, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) pointed the barrel of the law inward by reinterpreting it to apply to used products as well, and they launched operation Resale Round-up to police charities, second-hand stores, and yard sales and garage sales—in America. Any person caught selling an item on the CPSC’s list can be fined up to $100,000 for a single instance, and multiple infractions can raise the fine to $15 million.1
Garage sale proprietors, the vast majority of whom are unaware of this law, much less that it has recently been pointed at them, are now required to be aware of current recalled items; which at press time was listed on the CPSC’s website as 25 baby swings, 164 cribs, and about 1,000 toys beside a list of over 1,500 other recalled items that include baby pacifiers, strollers, and even clothing.2
Predictably, rather than attempt to wade through the regulations and expend countless hours checking inventory, many resale stores are no longer accepting infant and children’s products for resale.
Almost certainly, China was given a secret briefing before the President made his announcement of the creation of the TEU, and assured it was the hollow promise that it is. The President wouldn’t dare take any serious actions against Chinese trade and risk losing our largest purchaser of worthless Treasury Bills.
The reason the Consumer Product Safety Act was turned inward at used products in America was to give the CPSC something to do, and the belief that they were doing something. The powers behind the CPSC have no intention of protecting us from poisonous and dangerous Chinese products. In fact, Resale Round-up benefits the Chinese by acting to destroy the second-hand market thus forcing Americans to purchase new products made in China.
Even without such examples as the foregoing, the very ominous titles of the new bureaus, agencies and commissions reveal their duplicitous natures.
