by Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer On May 29, 2013 the Mille Lacs Messenger, a MN county newspaper, published the following letter of mine. And Indian Country Today Media Network, the world's largest Indian news source, recently posted this letter as a comment to an article by Steven Newcomb. Only three comments were posted with the article. An official United Nations document describes the Doctrine of Discovery as a principle of international law that developed in a series of 15th century papal bulls and 16th century charters by European monarchs. The UN document also states that the doctrine was — and is — a racist philosophy that gave white Christian Europeans the green light to go forth and claim the lands and resources of non-Christian peoples and kill or enslave them. And that it sanctioned the genocide of indigenous people in the New World and elsewhere. Another UN document states that the Doctrine of Discovery has been institutionalized in law and policy, on national and international levels, and lies at the root of the violations of indigenous people's human rights, both individual and collective. This has resulted in State claims to and the mass appropriation of the lands, territories and resources of indigenous peoples. In conclusion I would like to say that European countries, and our country (the United States of America) are owned and operated by and for the benefit of the multinational neo-conservative conglomerates who make their profits off stolen resources and lands, at the expense of oppressed and subjugated indigenous people worldwide. Their policy is called colonialism and it is nothing but theft and murder. Our country spends trillions of dollars internationally and domestically carrying out those policies of invading other countries or manipulating assassinations and coups to destabilize governments in order to set up and prop up despot two bit dictator regimes who are bribed to subjugate their people with intimidation, kidnappings, rape and murder, to enable the foreign multinational conglomerates to steal their resources and lands. We have 750 to 900 bases in 125 to 235 countries, depending on if Ron Paul or Jesse Ventura is talking, manned by the neocon-owned CIA, military intelligence or mercenaries. We spend trillions to enable million and billion dollar profits for a select few like Halliburton, KBR, Shell, BP or Exxon and their bribed political prostitutes like Obama, Boehner, Pelosi, Feinstein and Cantor, as well as Scalia and Thomas. In return we get the trillion dollar bill and the resulting terrorist attacks by people incensed at seeing their people murdered in order for foreigners to steal their resources. It's called colonialism and most descendants of the illegal European immigrants refuse to admit that the policies of colonialism are nothing but theft and murder and results in terrorism. To do so they'll be forced to admit to the world that our government is guilty of theft and murder and together with their neo-con masters, are guilty of theft and murder and are ultimately responsible for the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11. On June 19, 2013, the Mille Lacs Messenger published the following related letter, titled, On Neo Conservatives. And Indian Country Today Media Network posted this letter as a comment to an article by Winona LaDuke. Only three comments were posted. President Dwight Eisenhower wrote, "We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes." If it goes unchecked it will inevitably lead to a state of constant war, a fascist government and an ideology to pursue total war and absolute world domination. The industries involved, mostly arms and oil corporations, economically profit and also gain political influence from all conflicts and war. The global military-industrial complex and its chief partner, the U.S.A., have this dangerous new ideology, which is termed neo-conservatism. The philosophy of this ideology is that it is often compulsory for leaders to deceive and manipulate others for their gain, as long as it benefits the state. In constitutional democracies, the leadership power to deceive and manipulate others resides in the "emergency powers." After the Nazis created a state of "emergency" and blamed communist terrorists for it, they were able to unite the German people in opposition to a perceived "enemy". Hitler was thus enabled to gain dictatorial power. Under the neo-conservatives, the government of the United States has grown larger than ever before. The neo-cons advocate an imperialistic foreign policy. They believe in the concept of pre-emptive war, are strong advocates of an American Empire and that it is necessary to remove many personal liberties to increase and sustain the state's power. They promote a new, inclusive and integrative force, a new ideological tool, a globalization stradegy, to contain and suppress nationalist and oppositional movements around the world. The neo-conservatives can not maintained their power without help from the media, which is owned by the military-industrial complex. The U.S. media isentirely owned by a few corporations; Time Warner, Disney, News Corporation, General Electric. GE is also a military corporation and it is making high-tech surveillance equipment, both are making it billions of dollars from the "War on Terror," terrorists being the new "enemy," and the emergence of a domestic police state at home. The anti-Soviet weapon is being replaced by the tool of "free trade." This new phase of capitalist accumulation and colonization is termed "globalization." Neo-cons advocate integration versus fragmentation. Thus again, the world is seen through the prism of the good versus the evil, with globalization representing good, satisfaction of economic needs for the wealthy and removal of trade barriers in pursuit of progress. The tools of global governance are the global institutions of management of the economy, environment and politics. They include GATT, the World Trade Organization, the Security Council, the World Bank and the IMF. NAFTA, APEC, the EU, and the G-8 are among the regional instruments which are in synchronization with the global institutions. Together, they are touted as the instruments of integration and homogenization which counter the global forces of fragmentation, which include nationalists, Islamic fundamentalism, terrorism, Indigenous decolonization movements and ethnic rivalries. This is the neo-cons plan and strategy to usher in a new world order. On June 17, 2013 Indian Country Today Media Network posted a related comment that I submitted to an article by Peter d'Errico, titled Government Spying and the NSA: COINTELPRO On Steroids. It reads: What are we Americans going to do now that we know how truly insane and totalitarian our government has become? Will we go back to watching our sports teams and our reality TV programming, and forget about the fact that we no longer have any privacy in our lives, that our elected leaders and our judges are operating on the assumption that if they get out of line the fascist machine at the NSA that works in service of the corporate elite will blackmail or destroy them with its access to all their communications. Or will we rise up and demand an end to this high-tech tyranny in the name of a fraudulent "War" on Terror?
