Dept. of Peace

It is always darkest before the dawn. In these days, we have easily the most corrupt government officials and members of Congress that we have ever had. We have the "unelected"Bush regime who used coercion, killings, and threats of civil war to carve a doorway into the White House for Bush Jr. We have many members of Congress who have repeatedly betrayed our people by knowingly passing totally unconstitutional laws. These last years will be known as the darkest in our nation's history.

Just when the darkest days seem to be here, we are seeing the dawn of the true NESARA law arriving and shining brightly upon our people and our world. The true NESARA law is the process and vehicle by which WE the PEOPLE are transforming our country and world for the better. Many of us have pledged our lives to helping bring forth the kinds of great uplifting transformations for the benefit of all which are embodied in the true NESARA law. For many decades we have been working toward the dawn that the true NESARA law brings.

Within 120 days after the true NESARA law is announced, we will have new elections in the United States. Because Constitutional Law will be restored by the true NESARA law, many of the devices used currently to control the outcome of elections will be null and void. There will be ZERO political parties. There will be zero election contributions allowed thus freeing candidates of the need to cow-tow to political contributors. There will be new processes for selecting candidates and enabling Americans to learn about the candidates in meaningful ways. After NESARA is announced and during the few months before the new elections, we will see many exposes about how corrupt our government officials and many in Congress have been. We will learn the truth about what these people have really been doing. We will be much smarter after these exposes and more able to elect truly good people to represent us.

There will be many other activities after the announcement of the true NESARA law which will enable TRUTH to reach the world's people for the first time in thousands of years. Because of learning the "truth‰, we will realign our priorities according to new understandings of reality and truth. We will choose PEACE because we will learn that war is a tool of those who have tried to control the world for their personal benefits. We will elect enlightened people who live higher values and they will make PEACE a priority. We already have a beginning step in the U.S.; we have a bill which establishes a Department of Peace. Below is a summary of this bill and a list of those who co-sponsored it. The Department of Peace is a forerunner of many wonderful improvements to come after the true NESARA law is announced. On this Thanksgiving Day, let us lift our focus to the better world we are embracing with the announcements and implementations of the true NESARA law.

Legislation Introduced to Create a Department of Peace On July 11, 2001 Congressman Kucinich introduced H.R. 2459, a bill to create a Cabinet-level Department of Peace which embodies a broad-based approach to peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution at both domestic and international levels. The Department of Peace would serve to promote non-violence as an organizing principle in our society, and help to create the conditions for a more peaceful world. Domestically, the Department would be responsible for developing policies which address issues such as domestic violence, child abuse, and mistreatment of the elderly. Internationally, the Department would analyze foreign policy and make recommendations to the President on matters pertaining to national security, including the protection of human rights and the prevention and de-escalation of unarmed and armed international conflict.

The Department would also have an Office of Peace Education that would work with educators in elementary, secondary and universities in the development and implementation of curricula to instruct students in peaceful conflict resolution skills. In addition, a Peace Academy, modeled after the military service academies, would be established to provide instruction in peace education and offer opportunities for graduates to serve in programs dedicated to domestic or international nonviolent conflict resolution.

Transfers to the Department the functions, assets, and personnel of various Federal agencies. Establishes a Federal Interagency Committee on Peace. Establishes Peace Day.
