MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS AND THE LOSS OF SOVEREIGNTY

[Note: On June 14, Hassan Rouhani was elected president of Iran. In 2006, he had said “a nuclear weaponized Iran destabilizes the region,” and therefore the U.S. government is hopeful his election will mean Iran will not pursue development of nuclear weapons. However, since Rouhani was once a representative of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, his election is probably an attempt to lure the West and Israel into a false sense of security.
Another newly-elected leader, Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan’s new prime minister, announced early in June that his country would no longer allow U.S. drone strikes on their land. The Obama administration, not wanting to be told what not to do, launched a drone strike on northwest Pakistan late on June 7. Pakistan complained these strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty. Apparently, Sharif doesn’t realize undermining national sovereignty is a key component in the Power Elite’s (PE’s) plan to bring about a World Socialist Government.
Several days ago, the U.S. government announced that the U.S. Missions in 22 countries were being closed due to a significant Al-Qaeda threat, which we learned about because we intercepted their “chatter.” What an amazing coincidence! At the very time the U.S. National Security Agency is coming under fire for data collection on Americans, the NSA intecepts this terrorist “chatter.” What’s the message? Americans better not complain about what the NSA is doing, or we might be successfully attacked by terrorists.
Another key component in the PE’s plan is undermining morality. Relevent to this, ABC television recently began a new Sunday night show called “Mistresses” about 4 women having affairs. This would have been unheard of several decades ago. WASHINGTON POST TV critic Hank Stuever on June 2 reviewing the program said: “I kept thinking about how much I have heard their word ‘truth’ come up lately when people talk about television’s “iffy future.”
So why are people more willing today to produce and view such “trash”? It is because morality has been redefined as just being a “basically good person.” In other words, if one is otherwise a generally good person, it doesn’t matter anymore if they violate the Biblical admonition against fornication and adultery. They can still go to heaven, according to the new morality. In case you doubt that this is the “new morality, on May 29, an NPR (National Public Radio) spokesperson said “last week” the new Catholic Pope Francis said “good people,” even atheists, will all meet in heaven. Thus, according to Pope Francis, Christ’s statement that He is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” and that “no man cometh to the Father but by me,” is no longer applicable! This may be one reason THE HOLY BIBLE in 4 different places says that “only a few” will be chosen or saved!]
In 1967, Business International issued a research report stating: ” …the nation-state is becoming obsolete: tomorrow…it will in any meaningful sense be dead—and so will the corporation that remains essentially national.”
Until this time, American political parties, even the business-oriented Republican Party, had been concerned about protecting American jobs. In the 1972 Republican Party platform, there was the following provision: “We deplore the practice of locating plants in foreign countries solely to take advantage of low wage rates in order to produce goods primarily for sale in the United States. We will take action to discourage such unfair and disruptive practices that result in the loss of American jobs.” However, this plank in the 1976 platform was omitted! What had happened?
