For some time, BQI has tried to educate the public to the rapid changes occuring in America and throughout the world. Both BQI and Glenn Beck have made accurate predictions of events in America and the world. This week Glenn reviewed his track record of predictions and it seems to be pretty good. Now, Glenn is predicting major events occurring this summer and early fall. Like Glenn BQI has also written several articles predicting things like the outcome of this fall elections in Egypt. Now BQI sides with Glenn on world changing events.
Below is Glenn’s May 24th show where he reviews his prior predictions and then takes a bold step to predict what will happen this summer. Essentially Glenn sees a reshaping of the world into spheres where different groups or individuals are vying for major roles if not control of large swaps of world geo politics and economic control.
In addition and as further support for Glenn’s analysis BQI is providing a two part series article entitled “A Modern Declaration of Independence”. Although the article ends with an analysis that people can use to become less dependent on government and third parties, the meat of the article provides a splendid analysis of the level of control that is being achieved by government over literally every aspect of our lives. The article makes a strong point that people will be better off with less dependency on others and becoming more self reliant.

GLENN BECK’S SHOW
A Modern Declaration of Independence
A real revolution starting in our own backyards.
by Tony Cartalucci
Changing the Balance of Power
To actually change the balance of power, we must understand how the global corporate-financier elite have accumulated so much power to begin with. First and foremost we the people have paid into centralized mega-businesses for generations, funneling our work, savings, attention, and our dependency into the hands of the wealthy elite. Secondly, the global elite have augmented their positions in society with self-proclaimed authority, a myriad of rules, regulations, laws, pomp, and decrees that protect their various rackets and monopolies. They have also completely infiltrated and commandeered the political system. The United States federal government for instance, is increasingly demanding state and local governments become beholden to them, thus defeating the whole purpose of having a state and local government in the first place.
Quite obviously then, to change the balance of power, the solution must address these two factors. First we must end our servile dependency on consumerism and the “paying into” this corrupt corporate-financier system. Humanity as a whole is endowed with tremendous creative abilities – consumerism negates these abilities and reduces us to mere human-livestock. We must become producers once again, particularly in America where the nation was built on production, industry, creativity, invention, and rugged individualism. Second, we must recognize the “corporatocracy” as the illegitimate parasites that they are, and render moot their ever growing list of laws, rules, and regulations designed solely to protect their own interests at the cost of society and the world as a whole.
It Has Already Begun
The control of agriculture is one of the fundamental sources of power. Agriculture feeds, clothes, shelters, and even fuels society. It is something that we cannot do without, and depend on for our health and our very survival day to day. It is one of the first logical aspects of the current paradigm one should consider “taking back.” And taking back people are.
It began in Sedgwick, Maine, where a local ordinance was passed protecting local farmersand markets from federal regulations designed entirely to destroy localized agriculture on behalf of mega-corporations like Monsanto, Cargill, and Syngenta. Rather than asking permission, the good people of Sedgwick, Maine simply declared their sovereignty vis-à-vis a state and national government that has long outgrown its mandate. The neighboring towns of Penobscot, Blue Hill and Trenton followed suit. Douglas Wollmar of Trenton, a local farmer who helped push through the ordinance in his town, cited Thomas Jefferson who said, “I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves,” in regards to shifting the unwarranted influence and power of the federal government back into local people’s hands.
In the spirit of Jefferson’s words, the “Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance of 2011” clearly and unequivocally declares its sovereignty in all matters regarding local agriculture in what can be called a “modern Declaration of Independence:”
“We the People of Sedgwick, Hancock County, Maine have the right to produce, process, sell, purchase and consume local foods thus promoting self-reliance, the preservation of family farms, and local food traditions. We recognize that family farms, sustainable agricultural practices, and food processing by individuals, families and non-corporate entities offers stability to our rural way of life by enhancing the economic, environmental and social wealth of our community. As such, our right to a local food system requires us to assert our inherent right to self-government. We recognize the authority to protect that right as belonging to the Town of Sedgwick.
We have faith in our citizens’ ability to educate themselves and make informed decisions. We hold that federal and state regulations impede local food production and constitute a usurpation of our citizens’ right to foods of their choice. We support food that fundamentally respects human dignity and health, nourishes individuals and the community, and sustains producers, processors and the environment. We are therefore duty bound under the Constitution of the State of Maine to protect and promote unimpeded access to local foods.”
And this is the true nature of freedom. It is not merely “doing what you want,” rather it is taking on full responsibility for yourself and your place within your local community – having complete mastery and control over your own destiny, which requires self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and political and economic independence. We have been duped by the current power brokers that “doing what we want” is the total summation of freedom – not realizing that “what we want” is a perception carefully managed and manipulated by the system. In other words, like a caged rat, we are free to do as we please, as long as it’s done within the confines of the cage. The current power brokers have convinced us that the cage bars are there for our own good – if we even notice them in the first place.
Translating Food Sovereignty into Total Sovereignty
Food is a fundamental aspect of power – but it is not the only aspect. Water, energy, industry, communications, security, transportation, and education are also essential. Translating the food sovereignty movement into a total sovereignty movement is the next step in the real revolution. A single county is more than capable of handling its own energy requirements, the management of communications, its own security via the sheriff and his ability to deputize, the production of clean water that meets the requirements of the local people, the management of transportation, and all matters regarding the education of its people.
Proof of this is the modern city-state of Singapore, no larger than most US counties, that indeed manages everything from commerce, transportation, and education, to their water supply, energy, and defense. Singapore boasts one of the best education systems in the world, a formidable military, and is a regional hub for industry and technological research & development. We can imagine then, American communities building a similarly localized independent society based on the US Constitution. These communities, independent and thriving, would act as cells do in the body, constituting healthy states, and in turn a magnificent nation – true to the principles it was founded on, honoring those who laid and defended with their blood that foundation.
By declaring and exercising our sovereignty in all matters on a local basis, we leave the elite’s cage of societal management and begin managing our own affairs free of their influence. It is then up to us as to where our destiny leads us, a destiny we ourselves shape directly, day to day, rather than waiting and hoping in vain for a better “administration” next election. We must stop reacting to the global elite’s strategy of tension, ever reacting to their outrageous provocations and egregious crimes against humanity.
We must instead look ourselves in the mirror and understand that we are the ocean upon which their entire empire floats, and we can just as easily sink that empire. Instead of reacting, we must start simply acting – locally, as the people of Sedgwick, Blue Hill, Penobscot, and Trenton have, declaring and exercising our sovereignty and independence on a daily basis. We do not need to ask permission to exercise what is our birth right. We do not need to ask permission to reassert our sovereignty in matters concerning agriculture, commerce, industry, or education. We simply need to start doing it.
