WHO LOST THIS BILL?
Rubber Stamps National Enslavement Bill
Legislation passes to create multi-million civilian "army" in line with Obama's compulsory national service agenda
By Joseph Watson
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
The Senate last night rubber stamped a nightmare domestic draft bill that legislates mandatory national service and creates an "army" of at least 7 million civilian enforcers working at the the behest of the government, while also containing language that threatens to ban free speech and the right to protest.
Last week, we reported on the House passage of the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act, known as the GIVE Act, which was carried with a 321-105 margin vote.
A passage contained in section 6104 of the original House version entitled "Duties," in subsection B6, states that a commission will be set up to investigate, "Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed." This language has been dropped from the version passed by the Senate.
However, Section 120 of the bill discusses the "Youth Engagement Zone Program" and states that "service learning" will be "a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency." This part remains in the version passed by the Senate.
Roles which will be staffed by members of the programs, labeled "Required National Service Corps," include "criminal justice," "environmental stewardship," and "public safety". Aside from the programs aimed at college students and young people, others will be specifically targeted towards, "Retired and other former law enforcement, fire, rescue, and emergency personnel, and other individuals with backgrounds in disaster preparedness, relief, and recovery."
The bill was rubber stamped by the Senate last night in a 74 to 14 motion, in what is described as a �procedural vote,� a move that creates "An army dispersed to help with education, health services and the environment," (which) would vastly enlarge the notion of "community organizing," and allow, as Senator Barbara Mikulski, Democrat of Maryland, said tonight, for about 7 million people to be engaged in such work" reports the New York Times.
The Senate will meet tomorrow morning to formally ratify the bill and finalize amendments. Call your Senator and demand that at least the mandatory language contained in this bill be removed.
References to the program as the creation of a civilian "army" have dominated mainstream news coverage of the legislation. 7 million members of this civilian "army" equates to about one member for every 50 Americans, a similar figure to the number of East Germans who collaborated with the Stasi and informed on their own citizens during the cold war.
The GIVE Act is just one of many pieces of legislation that vastly expand service organizations in line with Obama�s agenda to create a "national civilian security force".
In January we also reported on the introduction by the Department of Defense of a "civilian expeditionary workforce" that will see American civilians trained and equipped to deploy overseas in support of worldwide military missions.
The DoD report states, "Management retains the authority to direct and assign civilian employees, either voluntarily, involuntarily, or on an unexpected basis to accomplish the DoD mission."
Though the civilian expeditionary workforce program is restricted to DoD employees, similar programs have already been established for public sector workers.
One such program has seen hundreds of police, firefighters, paramedics and utility workers recently trained and dispatched as "Terrorism Liaison Officers" in Colorado, Arizona and California to watch for "suspicious activity" which is later fed into a secret government database.
Similar initiatives have been introduced in other western countries, including recently in the UK with the announcement that MI5 is currently training up to 60,000 UK citizens as part a civilian network of terrorist spotters, according to Prime Minister Gordon Brown and home secretary, Jacqui Smith.
In addition, Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, publicly stated his intention to help create "universal civil defense training".
In an interview with Ben Smith of the New York Daily News, Emanuel outlined the agenda for military-style training, essentially a domestic draft, aimed at preparing Americans for a chemical or biological terrorist attack.
Asked by Smith about the universal service plan and whether people would have to live in military barracks, Emanuel laughed before responding, "We're going to have universal civil defense training, somewhere between the ages of 18 to 25 you will do three months of training". but there can be nothing wrong with all Americans having a joint similar experience of what we call civil defense training or civil service in service of the country, in preparation, which will give people a sense of what it means to "be an American."
"It will be a common experience and we will be prepared, God forbid, God forbid that there is a chemical hit, another terrorist act or natural disaster becoming more frequent - there'll be a body of citizens who are ready and capable and trained - that's all you have to think about," said Emanuel before smugly declaring, "We're all here for you OK? It's a circle of love."
Asked if the training would be military style, with people wearing uniforms, Emanuel stated, "If you're worried about are you going to have to do 50 jumping jacks the answer is yes," adding that the service could be done through state national guard.
Shockingly, the GIVE legislation also contains language that could completely demolish the 1st amendment.
The 12th amendment to the act states, "Amendment to prohibit organizations from attempting to influence legislation; organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes; and assist, promote, or deter union organizing".
As Gary Wood writes, "Those in support of this legislation will argue this amendment is limited in scope and is not meant to interfere with the rights of citizens to protest, petition, boycott, or strike in resistance to government proposed laws. However, the people associated through service under the GIVE Act are considered volunteers, still free citizens, yet it will be unlawful for them to take part in any protests against any legislation. This is as close to a sedition act, a violation of 1st Amendment rights, as has been proposed in recent history. A basic right as a part of our natural, inalienable rights, is to resist government. Our founders not only knew it was a right but it was a responsibility. This legislation begins to break that down significantly."
Fears about Obama's plans to create involuntary servitude and domestic spy squads were first stoked in July 2008, when Obama told a rally in Colorado Springs, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."
Despite denials that Obama plans to institute a mandatory program of national service, his original change.gov website stated that Americans would be "required" to complete "50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year'. The text was only later changed to state that Americans would be 'encouraged" to undertake such programs.
Numerous other national service bills have been introduced which target everyone from schoolchildren to the elderly. They include the Service For All Ages Initiative, the Summer of Service Act, the Semester of Service Act, the Encore Service Act and the ACTION Act.
Regarding the GIVE Act, "The bill's opponents" and there are only a few in Congress say it could cram ideology down the throats of young "volunteers," many of whom could be forced into service since the bill creates a "Congressional Commission on Civic Service," reports Fox.
"We contribute our time and money under no government coercion on a scale the rest of the world doesn't emulate and probably can''t imagine," said Luke Sheahan, contributing editor for the Family Security Foundation. "The idea that government should order its people to perform acts of charity is contrary to the idea of charity and it removes the responsibility for charity from the people to the government, destroying private initiative."
Lee Cary of the conservative American Thinker warns that Obama's agenda is to, "tap into the already active volunteerism of millions of Americans and recruit them to become cogs in a gigantic government machine grinding out his social re-engineering agenda."
The passage of such shocking legislation with barely a whimper from political activist groups goes to show how well the corporate media has performed in camouflaging the legislation with flowery characterizations of helpful volunteerism, when in reality the bill creates the pretext for mandatory national service and the creation of a multi-million man domestic civil defense unit who will be tasked with spying on their fellow Americans under the justification of protecting the country from terrorism.

SO WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO
The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act
To quote the above article may be considered an act of treason one day soon. You who are Bible believers, and you who minister to Christ's Church in local churches need to decide how you will react when the above plan is set in motion. There are two reactions that will be common among Bible believing Christians:
There will be those who will try to mix the two above responses feeling that they can coax Caesar to behave himself if they show gentle patriotism. Some will write their congressmen and try to use the democratic devices that have worked for two hundred years. The problem is, Obama and the present Congress, including most "conservatives", are not calling the shots. They are being called from above the people we see and know about-- people who stand in the shadows. It is a waste of time to identify them.
To illustrate how this has been in process for a long time, Ronald Reagan ratified the UN Genocide Treaty, and George H. Bush signed the Hate Crimes Act with only sodomites surrounding his desk at the signing. These laws are now in place to be used to strangle free speech and override the First Amendment. They only need to be enforced and upheld in court cases. A treaty, by Constitutional law, is of higher power than the Constitution itself. So, do not deceive yourself into thinking this is a result of the Democratic Party being in power. We are now just arriving at the final act.
George H. Bush promoted the first stimulus bill before leaving office. This "change" of America will, as far as I am concerned, be finally accomplished on Obama's shift. He has said so in his campaign speeches. So, to come up with a mixture of the above two reactions is insane reasoning for a Bible believing pastor and local church. The die is cast. America, as we have known it, is now going to be "changed" for ever. The New World Order will be forced on the USA.
We need to remind ourselves that the above violence against our personal freedoms is historically old stuff. Hitler had his youth wing, and it was at first a very positive force in Germany. Only the most moral and decent youth were chosen, and they were held to standards that many Fundamental Baptists could not meet today. We knew a lady who joined the Hitler youth wing because it was the only moral choice she had to live with decent people in her area of Germany.
Stalin also had his youth wing.
Chairman Mao of China had a youth wing which he used to bring about his cultural revolution, which was a failure.
We lived through a Marxist coup in Ethiopia in 1974, and one of the first things the new Stalinist government did was to close the university at Addis Ababa and send the youth all over the country preaching Marxism and collectivism. Each youth was intentionally sent to the opposite end of Ethiopia from his home area in order to isolate him from old friends, security in family, his religous leaders, and from defecting easily and going home.
One thing that eventually is clear in all youth wing attempts-- the citizens they allegedly serve learn to hate them passionately. This is what is in store for any of the youth (or older people) in your church who are called into such service. No matter how wicked the youth, or how sincere and helpful, they are hated. Keep this in mind as you read on.
THE CHALLENGE BEFORE CHRISTIAN MINISTERS AND PARENTS
There will be no second choice in a program of this sort. History also indicates that what Obama calls "change" is best done suddenly, especially right after some horrendous crisis event. There will be no exemption because of conscience or religious belief. Indeed, churches may well be used as "volunteer" agencies to help organize the program. I have done a lot of reading in the history of persecution in many nations. One thing comes through loud and clear-- there is NO biblical call for rebellion against the state by Bible believers. If you human liberties are stolen from you, then they are gone. You are not called to fix Caesar, nor are you called to stop evil government. Jesus told us,
Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
Jesus did NOTHING to solve the evils in Roman government, nor did he lead a rebellion to get the Jews their rights back. Paul and the early church leaders did not enter into civil rights, and they did not preach against Caesar's violence against humanity. The churches in China did not rebel against Mao's Marxist state. The only way in which they violated the laws of the Marxist state was in the ways they found fellowship with other saints and in ways they found to win souls. This was true also of the Russian Baptists of the USSR.
The Ethiopian church leaders responded wisely in a hurry after the Marxist coup in '74 in Ethiopia. Ethiopian church leaders met in a rather isolated place and set in motion a strategy for teaching their youth and helping them survive the Marxist attempt to brain wash them and dislocate them from the Body of Christ. This is one of the reasons the Ethiopian churches grew like wild fire immediately after the Marxist coup and all the way until the regime fell after twelve years.
I was invited to the home of an Ethiopian doctor in California who was attending to the personal secretary of Kurt Woldheim, Secretary General of the United Nations. He told me that the Ethiopian Marxist government was so helpless to stop the rapid growth of Christian churches that they reversed their strategy. They printed, and handed out at the UN, a pamphlet stating that, because of the glorious liberties of Marxism, Christian churches were growing rapidly. That did NOT happen because the Lord's Church rebelled against the Ethiopian government, evil as it was.
You as parents, and you pastors, need to stop preaching "standards" about hair and hemlines and teach Bible, Bible, Bible, Bible. That means Christian fathers, AND BIBLE BELIEVING PASTORS, will finally have to start studying for their family prayer time, and, in the case of pastors, study for their messages. Most Fundamental Baptist pastors, and many other Bible believing pastors, are too lazy to study. They are disobedient, as we see here:
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
You preach the Gospel once or twice a week to a room full of Christians, and all the other sermons are on standards or tithing. Your people, and especially your youth, will be scattered like lambs before wolves by the Obama Marxist state unless they have a real Bible based zeal. That means they must see YOU study the Bible, and your sermons filled with jokes, clichés, yarns, and hooting and shouting will have to give place to teaching.
AND, you have NO business mixing up Bible teaching with patriotic ranting, raving and flag waving. Preaching Americanism is NOT what Jesus told you to do.
I suppose I could go on and take you, editorially, by the hand and lead you step by step through the process of finding the areas of need of your youth, making a list of biblical weak areas they have, and then make a list of sermons or Bible books you could use to prepare them for the coming Marxist days we will soon see in America. If you really need that sort of help, send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a true minister of Jesus Christ, you have all the help you need right there in the King James Bible.
Get this straight. I am an American. I am a Texan. I like life so far in America, and I am 66 years old. But, America is changing. I have lived in other nations as a missionary, and I have learned from the saints in those nations that rebellion and standing for your rights is a tragic mistake for a Bible believer. Every event God allows in our lives is coming to us with opportunities that are God-given. THAT is what we need to be looking for. What does God want me to do in this time and in these events?
Luke 12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:
4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state
I am, therewith to be content.
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Timothy 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Fathers, Pastors, Preachers-- There is your job in verse 2. If you cannot entrust to faithful men the biblical tools that they will need to survive in treacherous national times, then you have an empty head spiritually. Get busy, and fill your head with Bible, not Baptist bombast and bull. Then, pass it on as far and furiously as possible. Get your buns off the office chair between Bible study sessions, and get to the homes and restaurants where you can meet the young men and working men in your church and teach them the Word. If you have other teaching men in your church, or older men with experience with troubled times, put them to work teaching the Bible. Are you the only Bible teacher in your church? If so, you have failed according to Paul's teaching to Timothy.
By the way, the soldier in verse 3 is a soldier of Jesus Christ, not the US Army or some patriot movement. And, the war in verse 4 is spiritual warfare for the souls of men and for the spiritual survival of the saints.
Stop wrapping the Bible in the US Constitution or the flag. It is all over in the USA. Your job is to get the saints grounded in the Word of God so they will be able to stand strong in Christ no matter what come next.
5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for
an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
I fear for thousands of American Bible believers. Many will rebel against the invasion of their national liberties and destroy their Christian testimony and lose many opportunities to take a harvest of souls in the troubled times ahead. The liberty above, in verse 1, is not defined by the US Constitution. It is our liberty in Christ Jesus. One can have that liberty in the soul, no matter what national or economic horrors are taking place.
Now, Christian father, and YOU, preacher, teach, teach, teach-- pass on everything you have learned from the Word of God NOW!
12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see
I must apologize for only targeting the youth of our churches and homes in the above article. The plans, as set forth by Barak Obama, and recent legislation passed by our Congress, make it clear that people of all ages will be trained and assigned to tasks in the new America of "change". YOU, pastor, and I, will be trained too. What will YOU do when your letter comes telling you where to report for training?
You and I are NOT called to be tough Navy Seal types. We are called unto the Gospel and Jesus Christ, and THAT IS ALL. So, you better get alone with your old KJV and the Holy Ghost, and do some deep reading, thinking, and praying. This is not another trendy thing like Bill Gothard or the Prayer of Jabez-- this is deadly stuff we are dealing with. It will not blow over. AND, there may be massive rebellion by many Americans at these plans. States may secede from the USA. There may be riots in the streets. There may be another 9/11 staged to stir people to patriotic responses as a prelude to implementing the above plan. You need to know AHEAD OF TIME how you will react to any number of scenes that could play themselves out in America.
