I have no comment for this verse other than to  say this. These are words of comfort for God's holy people ALONE. Such comfort is never for the unrepentant or the wicked. Though God does at times rebukes us, he still loves us and will again bring us back into full fellowship with him provided we repent and  turn again to him. Though the world rejects us, friends and family forsake us, God is constant and has taken great pains to bring us into fellowship with him.... Fear not!

pdf Political And Economic Review #2, January, 2013
This issue is mostly about American oil and leadership. It is a 30 page overview of America's oil situation and new claims that America will one day surpass the Saudi's in Oil production and become energy independent. The question is an extremely important one and could really alter the whole geopolitical landscape... if true.  Are these claims real and credible? Are there any problems with them? This paper talks about this and other issues dealing with the crisis of American leadership.

Fed's Balance Sheet Hits $3 Trillion
Before you know it, the Fed is going to own all of America's debt. Conspiracy theories aside, that is ultimately what this means, from mortgages to T-bills. The Fed is going to own America.

Economic Indicator: NetFlix
What is not mentioned in the article are the numbers of Cable Cutters... like me, who just got fed up paying $120+ every month to watch 5 channels. I see the rise of NetFlix as a sign of people just tightening their belts in a world of economic uncertainty. That does not mean that Cable companies have much to fear... at present. It just means that a guy who just lost a good paying job  to take a low paying job and is barely hanging on, trying to put food in his kids mouth is going to cut the cable before he cuts the heat or lights.

Wall Street: Obama's Untouchables
The Rich and the White always escape jail in Obama's administration, While he builds new jails for Black folks.  Can we be sure David Duke didn't get a skin transplant?

President Obama's budget request for fiscal year 2013 includes cuts to everything from Medicare and Medicaid to defense and even homeland security. But federal prisons are among its "biggest winners," according to an analysis by the Federal Times. - MJ

2008 prison stats
2006 figures


2009 figures (wikipedia)
These numbers are not percentages... they are actual numbers. Now consider that Blacks make up a small minority of Americans, somewhere around 20%

What is so sick to me about this administration is that Wall Street is too big to jail as far as Obama is concerned, yet even one of the Federal Reserve Banks is calling for an end to the too big to fail banks
. He is not just calling for an end to bailouts, he wants to break them up! I don't think that will happen on Obama's watch. Not with Jack Lew running the Treasury.

Well, the fallout from the PBS piece (original story) has been 'fast and furious'... the DOJ official referenced in it just got fired... I mean... is leaving the Justice Department.

400,000 Displaced In Mali War
... with increasing shortages of food and fuel.

The Curse
See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
(Deu 30:15-19)

I do not speak lightly about curses. It's a very serious matter. So what I have to say today is in that vein, a very serious matter. This is not a political  swipe at anyone, but it a spiritual word at the nation and its primary leader. It is not meant to drive you from one political party to another for today's political parties are little more than marketing ploys. They are the 'box' you buy in the store only to find our when you get home that the same thing that was in the GOP box is in the Democrat box -  flies swarm out, worms crawling around... and it reeks. They just have different pictures on the front of their respective boxes.

What needs to be understood here is that the next four years are going to be pivotal. The last four years... we have not had one single federal budget! You heard right, this President's term is marked by a country so dysfunctional they we do not and have not had a Federal budget, even though the law requires one. Congress and the President have both abandoned their legal and constitutional responsibilities. Now this President, in his usual fits of fiscal irresponsibility, has the temerity to ask Congress to do away permanently with any further talk of debt ceilings. His solution? Just keep borrowing money with no restraint!. The debt ceiling is the last bit of restraint America has! That is Obama's solution to America's debt crisis, more debt compounded on debt. - "I'll just leave my filth to be cleaned up by the 'maid' of future generations."  This is Obama's fiscal policy in a soundbite.

But today, this President is not focusing on America's crisis. I am going to tell you what everyone 'in the know' in Washington knows and no one in the media will tell you. This President has fully embraced the gay agenda, 100%. He presently is openly and actively soliciting for a White House that is predominantly not just gay, but openly and militantly gay. This is where this President's priority is now. He is going to charge 100% forward for the gay agenda... and who cares about things like 'budgets' and 16, going on 17 trillions in debts. The President has embraced what I will call the G2 agenda - Green and Gay. If it isn't dealing with one of those issues, it is highly unlikely a person will even get on the Presidents calendar.

In short, Obama is going to thrust this agenda on the nation. Let me let you in on a secret that the White House is now working on. He plans on making a serious attempt to remove the tax-free status of Churches that will not perform gay marriages.  You heard that right. Informed insiders have made it clear that this is already in the works, so I would look for the real moves to be made before the end of the year.  Some of you probably thought that Obamcare's attack upon Christian businesses was an unintentional side effect of Obamacare: No it was central to the spiritual underpinnings of the Ant-Christ system Obama fully intends to set up, while Black folks remain on their faces in worship and adoration of this man and his policies. Dutifully poking their own eyes out when they see something they might not like... to make sure they don't ever see it again. The further back the go, the deeper the worship.

This is how you wind up with a people so economically and socially backwards, its because they are willfully spiritually blind. This administration has successfully bamboozeld black folks, now the devil is going to do the same number on the rest of America. Tool? The gay agenda. Black folks have gone backwards under this President. Why? He knew if he wanted to, he could put half of the Black population in jail and the other half would still vote for him. One insider said this to me..."inside that man lies the soul of a David Duke", quoting someone else who sees things more clearly than most. Oh yes, others see the reality but you can't tell Black America that. They see a 'Black Leader; on TV touting Obama and they don't have the sophistication to find out who is paying the bills, who owns the station and where the owners of the station are putting their money and what they get back in return for their 'support'.  So what I will call the 'Tom Train' choo-choo's right down the tracks to further Black impoverishment with 'Tommy', the engineer and David Duke like figures paying all the bills. Please....wait till we get to our destination before you put your sheets on.

The voices of reason inside the White House staff have all left. They shook the dust off of their feet on the day they left, after smelling the increasingly pungent aroma of sulfur that permeates 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. They see what Obama has become, a man who no longer listens to others and has effective 'deified' himself. Today, he is appointing nothing but yes men into his cabinet. Kerry, Hagel, Lew, Brennan... this is the "Honorable Association of Bobbleheads".  Men who do not and have not had any original ideas but know how to bobble their heads at the proper moment. Lew however is a little more dangerous, he is a slickster with an eye to using his position to enrich himself... skirting the outer edges of the law in so doing. He is last guy on earth you want running the Treasury.

So expect a theater of propaganda to hit America from every conceivable direction pushing the gay rights and marginalizing those who hold fast the whole Gospel of Christ. This nation is going to experience this from PAC's set up by Obama, his family and henchmen to ramrod this agenda on America. Folks will not know what hit them and more importantly, from where it is being directed.

The good news is that Obama has already alienated the Hill and the Senate. He has alienated key people within his own party and he did this the same day he got inaugurated. Reid... its pretty hard to alienate him, but somehow Obama managed to do it. He won't get anything passed in the Senate without Reid.  I say this is good news because if this is his real agenda for the next four years, then he may very well be a Lame Duck President before the year is out, unable to move anything forward in the House or Senate because of this agenda that not even the Democrats want to move forward on with such demonic and potentially destabilizing repercussions.

I think my readers deserve to know this as well so listen up, the President is laughed at around world capitals. Yes, he really is. The Chinese laughed and mocked when they heard Obama inauguration speech. Oh yes they did especially when they heard his call for more 'gay rights' . What most do not know is that Chinese leaders/Organized Crime/Intelligence agencies have poured a mint into America's gay porn industry. Oh yes, they know the long term societal effects of that stuff... that's why they want to encourage it in America. Keep this in mind as it is something I have told my readers for a long time. The Chinese don't think short term. They think long term. Ten years is the shortest they really plan. Other plans they have go way into the next century. Some of them are moving way ahead of schedule. Putin? Do you know what he calls Obama behind his back? "That dark 'f*-&*packer' ".  I kid you not. Hollande has made similar statements. Keep in mind that these are not my views, but the views WORLD LEADERS have of our President. Listen, he is just not respected  because, while his a very intelligent man, he is in many ways just an empty suit and an important tool to be used by the highest bidder. Hollywood and the Gay Community put large amounts of money in the political vending machine, aka Obama. Now they are going to get their candy and wave it around in triumph. I can only say that that I think there is something missing in that man... a deep, perhaps spiritual part of that man.... it just isn't there. He's not evil in the classic sense, but still...

But I will say this as well. When a nation decides to put the stamp of approval on those things God hates, it invites a curse. And be certain of this, without some real soul searching repentance, a curse is what is going to hit us. America has enjoyed prosperity like no other nation on earth. Military power like no other nation on earth. Good will and diplomatic strength like no other nation on earth. Why? We as a nation respected God and set our laws up in clear parallel to God's holy principles, not contrary thereto. The nation is not perfect, never has been. But as a nation we never endorsed open sin and rebellion against the God of the Holy Bible...

....that is until Obama.

He is now determined to do this thing, come hell or high water. I give all a word of warning: any so-called Christian who can sit there and not see what spirit is behind this? He had better figure it out... real quick because I see a lot of believers who should have known better than to vote for this man going under severe chastisement and even physical death for choosing what God clearly has marked as evil on election day. Chastisement is only for those who know God. Those that do not know him need not worry about chastisement. Their fate is significantly worse (damnation) and far more permanent. To put it bluntly, there is a very serious curse for willfully choosing the evil, whatever your excuse. When all hell breaks loose, no one will want to believe that their actions set disasters in motion. Devastating storms, Earthquakes, school shootings, terrorism, banking collapses and pandemonium. They will point the finger at someone OTHER THAN THEIR OWN WICKED ACTIONS AND CHOICES. That is when God just pulls the protective covering from the nation and lets the devil have his way. What is his way? To steal kill and destroy. What do I see in the future? An Exponent. In mathematics so it is in the spiritual realm. I see an exponential increase in troubles coming to America as we depart from God and the government turns its administrative, legal and eventually real guns on God's people inside her borders.

Now over the next four years I think things are going to move very swiftly for there are some real threats hitting American shores that sadly I have been strictly charged not to reveal, but are going to be utterly devastating to America and her economy.  They will be nearly impossible to counter and everyone missed this one and now... its too late.

So I see all of this as just God's way of dealing with America's overflowing cup of sin, perversion and vice.

This is a spiritual war and the number one weapon that will be used against us real Christians is going to be President Obama who has given heed to deceitful spirits and devils who have told him that he is better than other men and no longer needs advice from those who are not 'divine' like him and the God of all things needs to obey him on the Gay agenda, not the other way around.

This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king: That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule. Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity. All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar. At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon. The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
(Dan 4:24-32)


Will anyone listen to what I am saying here today? No... well very few. I know that. Folks are going to do what they want to do and if sodomy, stealing, lies, fraud, hate, murder, pedophilia, torture, lust, cruelty, adultery, fornication and blasphemy are what they want to do, then all they really have done is reveal the identity of their spiritual father.

And that is really all this President has done. I am not shocked by it and I am only mildly disappointed... insofar as one always holds out a little hope people will change for the better. In Obama's case, it has been for the worse. This bringer of hope and change's light is not one that is true.

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
(2Co 11:14)

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
(1Jo 3:7-8)


My point here is not to get you to hate Obama, but to pray for him for there are some of the most powerful demonic strongholds on earth active over the White House and unless a man really has Christ, he is sure to fall prey to those principalities.

Pray for our President.

Unlikely Coalition Fights For Drone Privacy
A few years ago, I got a heads up that these drones were really coming to US skies. I had a hard time believing it, but they are here now. I cannot help but look at the other places where they are being used... places where the US government sees 'the enemy'. Are Americans the new 'enemy'?

I have heard the pro's and con's from law enforcement to privacy activists on their use. I get it. I see the positive uses for them. I also see the downside especially if abused and just as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, they will be and probably are being abused right now in some top secret government program, totally contrary to US law and with oversight by some convicted felon.


House To Hear Testimony Of Military Rape Scandal
I do not expect to hear any of the deep seated problems that have been experienced in the military. I do not expect to hear that some of the testimony about the scandal at Lackland says that young women were tied up by their drill sergeants and then gang raped. I do not expect to hear that some of the women and their families where later threatened by US military personnel into silence. I do not expect to hear of other more lurid and alarming trends talking place in the military in an open hearing, but those of you who are interested can check it out later today.

Mali: Africa Must Take The Lead
This crisis in Mali... first off, this is not just 'another war'. This is a very serious and potent threat to African continental security. While the group who has been initial involved (the Tuaregs) are a relatively small portion of the Mali population (around 10%) it has forged alliances in the region that has allowed to to mount a coup and a  significant military operation with the support of other like minded Islamic Jihadists. What should be noted here that has not been well laid out in many news reports is that Mauritaininan and Algerian groups are deeply involved and interestingly, racial issues appear to be one of the real sticking points between various North African and Sub-Saharan (Black) African Jihadist groups. Another fly in the Islamist ointment is the usual internal political power plays within these groups.

MUJWA  has  identified  a  replacement  for  Hisham  Bilal,
believed  to  have  been  the  first  sub-Saharan  individual  to
command  an  al-Qaeda-associated  jihadist  combat  unit.
Bilal and a number of his men returned to his native Niger
and surrendered to authorities there on November 8, 2012,
complaining that the Arab commanders of MUJWA viewed
Black African jihadists as “cannon fodder” and believed “a
black man is inferior to an Arab or a white”
 - Terrorsim Monitor (Terrorsim Monitor Voume XI, Issue 1)

The fall of Qaddafi is probably one of the main factors that is causing these groups to become more active  now and with the very high amount of arms that he once possessed and the Jihadist roots of the new US installed government in Tripoli, it stands to reason that this may be a major source of their arms. If this is the case (and it probably is), it would stand to reason that the US would want to downplay this aspect of the conflict for it would point to a serious point of 'blowback' that many warned about before we went into Libya. It was only after the fall of the Libyan regime that we began to see serious military agitation in Mali for an independent state in Mali's north. They did this after many had returned from the fighting in Libya, armed and battle hardened. It cannot be ignored here that the subtle 'racial superiority' tones are not atypical of many jihadist groups have many similarities to Nazi style fascism we have come to see in many, if not most Islamic militant organizations. Readers of Watson's Web are asked to keep looking into this connection, it is not one you will read about in any major news source but the ideological-historical-spiritual ties between Nazi-ism and today's Islamic militantism are quite real, clearly documented, most troubling and almost universally ignored.

AFISMA Nations (Wikipedia)
AFISMAAfrican states had a mission to reinforce the Mali army, which has suffered significantly since the Coup with various problems coupled with overall general institutional weakness. This operation was called AFMISA and they began a deployment last week that was not due to begin until September.

In many ways this deployment is very significant on a couple of levels. First because these nations are wasting no time  because they see a very serious threat to the stability of the entire region. Second because many of these nations are very poor and spending money on troop deployments, however small is a major financial undertaking. For example Togo:





Togo Budget:
revenues: $794.9 million
expenditures: $938.2 million (2011 est.)

Budget surplus (+) or deficit (-):
-3.9% of GDP (2011 est.) - Source: CIA


Togo is, for all intents and purposes, a poor country. Yet they are sending troops. What do they see? Here is the threat - That Jihadist groups from all over North Africa, from Somalia (Al Shabab) to Nigeria (to Boko Haram), to the adore mentioned groups in Algeria could and very well might gain a foothold, consolidate their power and use this area as a major staging are for more armed militantism and terrorism all through Africa.

Before we go on, let's make one thing clear, these are not 'freedom fighters'. The population by and large hate these groups as they are extremely brutal and twisted. Some of these men are clearly mentally ill, they will literally toss a 'toy' to a child that is loaded with explosives so they can watch the child blow up. You have women who are strapped to cannons so when it is fired, the cannon ball rips them apart at their private areas. The villages who offer up any resistance to these rebels are treated in the most brutal fashion. So forget about any idea that we are talking about any kind of 'freedom fighters' or path to anti-colonial liberation. Rather we are dealing with a  form a mass insanity (probably coupled with demoniac possession) that is typified in some of the most gruesome acts a man can commit against another. We can talk all day about the mental stability of the Sandy Hook shooter, but what is happening in places like Mali is Sandy Hook multiplied by ten thousand... no medicinal psychotropics required,  just a Koran and a Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher.

Intervention.

France has intervened and other EU nations are on the hook for at least some kind of support role and as mentioned earlier, Africa has some troops already there with 'boots on the ground'.  The Huffington Post has a piece here that gives us a general view on the state of 'support'  the west is giving France. In short a lot of fine verbal sentiment, very little real support. The French so far are going it pretty much alone with increasing African support. The NYT piece (original news link) mentions that Russia may give logistical help to France.

Will the US intervene? Talking to one Senior US official recently I came away with the impression that they think this is exactly what needs to happen because this is an extremely virulent and violent form of Militantism that if allowed to consolidate and spread, will remain in Africa for decades to come and take power from state to state. They felt clearly that there was absolutely no time to lose to counter this threat. They also praised Algeria's response to the Hostage Crisis, saying that now is the time for solid action, not talk or engage in hand wringing. Since the folks I have talked to have actually been  to many of these nations before, they know the lay of the land. I think the President is going to get some recommendations to intervene and significantly, I also think that because China has significant interests in the region and lacks the ability to project power as the US does, I fully expect them to come knocking on America's door for some kind of  joint action. China as well cannot allow large swaths of Africa to go under Islamist domination.

Yet, despite the clear danger to Africa, it does not seem likely that the Obama administration will give the kind of ground-troop support many would like to see. The US will probably assist France logistically, diplomatically (trying to get other western nations involved) and with intelligence support, but I do not see this administration getting involved in a new war. America is tired of war, we cannot afford war and this President, I think, is going to focus his second term on America's pressing domestic crisis and issues that must be dealt with.

Do I think we should get involved? Well before I answer that, there are many who believe that America's future is going to lie in Africa and her rich resources. Keeping anti-American, politically and socially retrograde Islamists out of power in Africa is a most desirable goal, but one that may not even be achievable even with massive US intervention. If we should have learned anything in Afghanistan is that there are some severe limits on what US military intervention can accomplish. We can remove leaders, we can degrade or destroy critical infrastructure, we can force mass human migration with our force of arms and even hit remote regions with drones where we think terrorists are hiding. What we cannot do is bring in lasting stability where violent tribal and religious undertones are present in conflict zones. We still have not successfully learned how to do that. Consequently, I do not think that we would be able to successfully counter these elements in Africa. We could spend countless billions of dollars of money we don't really have, lose thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of African ones and still pull out in 10 years with pretty much the same result we saw in Afghanistan. The only thing we really accomplished was to enrich a corrupt regime in Afghanistan (and US contractors) and battle-harden Islamic militants. Just as importantly, I think our direct intervention would only make matters worse on the ground as our intervention would be just the kind of magnet that would drive Islamist fighters the world over into the conflict zone for no other reason than to demonstrate their military power and embarrass America's military as being incapable of beating Islamists on the ground. No dear readers, I see a lose-lose situation here, much risk and no realistic upside.

MSM Discovers US SOF's Are Operating In Mexico
Narco News broke the news of US special forces operating inside Mexico several years ago and has continued to follow the story, while the mainstream media has been silent. In fact, Narco News has obtained a series of emails involving the Pentagon that offer further proof that those operations were in play well before the recent MSM reports. - NarcoNews

...First, as has been shown, there are compelling reasons to believe that Hitler's statements about extermination in 1939 indeed cited the Armenians and were aimed at the Poles. Hitler's intentions toward the Jews had been spelled out across many statements, including in the notorious January 1939 speech in which Hitler "prophesied" that another world war would result in the "annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe." Second, Hitler had repeatedly engaged in virulent anti-Polish and anti-Slavic rhetoric prior to August 1939.

US Demands Release Of Iranian Pastor
Before any one gets all upset with America and fulminates all manner of hate towards it, consider that the US is one of the only nations today that really uses its diplomatic muscle to free persecuted people, including Christians. You are not going to see this from China, Russia or even the EU, though they may issue a polite statement now and again. No, the US is the key nation that makes sure the Human Rights agenda is something that nations like Iran and China have to do more than pay lip service to.

I will be the first to say this nation has some very serious issues, especially on the spiritual front, but let us put our serious shorcomings in some perspective. This is not and never will be a Christian nation and we cannont expect, nor should we even try to get the lost to live like they are saved. It is hard enough to get the saved to live like they are saved. The only thing we can do is preach the gospel in the hopes we might save some.





21January 2013

Inauguration
What I do not want to do today is to take away from this importnat day in America. We are swearing in a new President into office and we are doing it peacefully. This has always been the American way, a peaceful transitions of power. This was even so in the tense years in the run up to the Civil War. While Lincoln did have death threats against him and had to enter into DC secretly, the nation experienced a smooth Presidential transition. This is a big blessing. If you do not believe me, ask the people of Egypt, they will tell you. So let us all give thanks that we live in a nation that can do this peacefully.

Let us also sincerely pray for our President as the Scriptures command all true believers to do. Set aside your politics  and disappointnets and pray for the man who will lead America into 2016. Pray God gives him  desire to read, study, understand and obey God's commandments. Pray that as he opens up to God and that God will direct his paths and decisions. If we spend more time praying and less criticizing  and hating him (as is the habit of too many in the Religious Right), the nation might be in better shape.

But what I do want to do today is get a better understanding of just what is happening today. This might distrub a few of my readers, but I think we should get a clear picture of the real meaning behind the events of today. David J. Meyer, who was once a witch (as in a practicer of witchcraft) and was redeemed by Christ Jesus and exposed many of the connections between the occult and modern political events wrote this just before the last inauguration.

We must also bear in mind that the word inauguarate comes from the ancient Latin language of the old Roman Empire. In ancient Rome there were soothsayers called augurs who were invested with evil spirits and could supposedly declare the future. From the word augur came the word inaugurate, which literally means to take omens.  - Last Trumpet Newsletter, Jan 2009
 
Wikipedia talks about the Augers and says this.

The augur was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome and Etruria. His main role was to interpret the will of the gods by studying the flight of birds: whether they are flying in groups or alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are. This was known as "taking the auspices." The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society—public or private—including matters of war, commerce, and religion.

The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: "Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?" - Wikipedia

These things should not surprise us as many of America's traditions come out of ancient Rome. Was it not Rome who had a Senate that represented the landed/wealthy classes? This is how our Senate was originally set up. They were not elected by the people but selected by individual state legislatures removing it from direct popular (plebian/commoner) elections. This was changed with the 17th amendment to the Constitution.

The Senate of the United States was formed on the example of the ancient Roman Senate. The name is derived from the senatus, Latin for council of elders (from senex meaning old man in Latin). - Wikipedia

How many times have we hard the term 'elder statesman' when referring to this or that Senator? It also should not surprise anyone that even the stamp of Rome's official Pagan religious body should be indelibly marked on America's political system.  It is. It should not shock anyone who knows anything about US history that Freemasonry is also so intertwined with American history and government that saying the two have co-existed as a major part of the political structure of America since its inception. This is hardly a stretch of the truth. Many of America's founding organizations still exist, with heavy masonic overtones. Did you know that the Sons of Liberty still exist as one of Americans more important secret societies? It does and plays an important role in the US political system. They are quite secret and can be called one of America's more 'no nonsense' secret organizations.

Please understand, I am not here to propound any particular conspiracy theory, just to relate some of the lesser known facts surrounding our nation and its founding. Our leaders know of these things and if they don't and make a serious misstep, some of these organizations have a way of explaining their errors in a way that is unmistakable and at times permanent enough that the pupil does not live long enough to profit from the lesson. These are things you did not and will not read in our Jr. High textbooks and will have great difficulty in finding accurate information on, on the internet. These things are real. To deny them is akin to denying the existence of the Washington Memorial.

The Washington Monument is an obelisk on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., built to commemorate the first American president, General George Washington. - Wikipedia

What is an obelisk?

An obelisk (from Greek ὀβελίσκος - obeliskos,[1] diminutive of ὀβελός - obelos, "spit, nail, pointed pillar"[2]) is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top. Like Egyptian pyramids, which shape is thought to be representative of the descending rays of the sun, an obelisk is said to resemble a petrified ray of the sun-disk. A pair of obelisks usually stood in front of a pylon. Ancient obelisks were often monolithic, whereas most modern obelisks are made of several stones and can have interior spaces. - Wikipedia

I am using  the Wikipedia links because they are unbiased and I cannot be accused of using 'Christian Propaganda'. But if you really want to get down to it, you can find out what the ancients were really celebrating with these Obelisks.

On that note I will go out just a bit on a limb and post a link to a site one of my readers sent me over the weekend. But today, I will preface it with this verse that talks of end time Babylon.

Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
(Isa 47:12-13)

Nathan Leal over at Watchman's Cry has this to say about todays event. After seeking God on this matter, this is what he says God revealed to him.

If you are reading this after 12 noon eastern time – 1/20/13, this process is already underway!

As I have been seeking to find more understanding about this pivotal event, I was prompted to ponder a question about one of the primary Babylonian Princes mentioned in Jeremiah 39:3

Nergal-Sharezer is mentioned twice in Jeremiah 39:3

“And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.”

Why Twice?

Why is this? Why is he mentioned twice in this passage?

In our previous audio message and in several alerts , we went into great detail about the profiles and resumes of the demonic entities involved.

Based on the profile that has been uncovered about the demonic spirit Nergal, one of his attributes appears to be that he is a “god of the noon-time.”

When we consider that this entity seems to favor invocation during high noon, I find it interesting that Obama’s Inauguration Ceremony is taking place at 12 noon on January 20, 2013, (as per the 22nd amendment of the U.S. Constitution.) - Watchman's Cry


A little more can be found on this link.

I think this is rather interesting. I ask all to click over and PRAYERFULLY read what he says. If you have questions about it, ask Nathan, not me. I am not claiming God showed me this, so questions should be directed to him. FYI, I have never been in contact with Mr. Leal.

I think the point that needs to be made is that the Spiritual entities that are in power over America are the same ones from long ago. Was it not the Prince of Persia who withstood Michael the archangel for 21 days? Was not the King of Babylon who was identified as Lucifer, the proud one (Isiah 14:4ff)?

Let the reader pray, pause and consider the times and line them up with God's holy scripture and let us not be fooled about where we, who are men and women of God really are in the 'map' of spiritual warfare

That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth. The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us. Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
(Isa 14:4-9)

Is prophecy about to come full circle? Are we soon to come to fulfill the destiny of Babylon the Great? How much time do we have? Is there any clock we can use? I can think of one that may not be accurate from a spiritual perspective, but is from a temporal one.



In Christ.

Happy MLK  Day!!!
Did you know that this holiday is comemorated not just in the US?

One place outside the United States where Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is observed with equal importance is in the Japanese city of Hiroshima under mayor Tadatoshi Akiba, who holds a special banquet at the mayor's office as an act of unifying his city's call for peace with King's message of human rights.

The City of Toronto, Canada, is another city that has officially recognized Martin Luther King Jr. Day, although it is not a paid holiday in Toronto, and all government services and businesses remain open.

In 1984, during a visit by the U.S. Sixth Fleet, Navy chaplain Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff conducted the first Israeli Presidential ceremony in commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, held in the President's Residence, Jerusalem. Mrs. Aura Herzog, wife of Israel's then-President Chaim Herzog, noted that she was especially proud to host this special event, because Israel had a national forest in honor of Dr. King, and that Israel and Dr. King shared the idea of "dreams". Resnicoff continued this theme in his remarks during the ceremony, quoting the verse from Genesis, spoken by the brothers of Joseph when they saw their brother approach, "Behold the dreamer comes; let us slay him and throw him into the pit, and see what becomes of his dreams." Resnicoff noted that, from time immemorial, there have been those who thought they could kill the dream by slaying the dreamer, but – as the example of Dr. King's life shows – such people are always wrong. - Wikipedia


Let's give thanks that a true man of peace can be so honored by the American people.


I Have A Dream" Vs. "I Have A Drone"
The Press, under the direction of the powers that control the Obama White House continues to attempt to make comparisons between Obama and Dr. King.  Additionally Obama's use of the King/Lincoln Symbology will be evident during his inauguration.

I think it should be noted that while some people will say they find somthing  'highly offensive' when they do not really mean it, I want to make clear that I really do mean it, it is personally highly offensive to compare Dr. King and President Obama. If a person wants to worship Obama and idolize him, that is their business, not mine. But before anyone attempts to cast dispersions on Dr. King by comparing these two men as somehow similar, we need to go back and look at the record. Dr. Kings words and actions and match them up with President Obama's actions.

This link is from a the local Black community radion station here in DC, WPFW (download Here - SuperFunkySoulPowerHour) and was put togethter by a man named Jared Ball. Now these guys are a definitely NOT politically correct and are totally 'black ' in scope, but I think what is found in this one hour audiofile really lays it out to you just why comparing the two is not disingenuous, but that these comparisons being done today are deliberately disingenuous.

I think what we all need to keep in mind and what this show misses is that  Dr. King was Christian minister first. He made that clear in many speeches and never departed from the basic premises of the Gospel of Christ. It's why some have called him a prophet and in the broadest sense, I think he was. He was a prophet whom God used to help redirect America's energies from the legacies of racial hared, poverty and militarism, towards something more enlightened and Godly. The American establishment did to him what they do to most prophets, they killed him... After Hoovers FBI persecuted him.

On another note, a Symposium on a Vision For A New America had its annual event yesterday, and it was pretty good. I listened to parts of it last night on my little mp3 player/fm radio. I know many Black folks don't like Tavis Smiley because he has not joined the "lets turn off our brains, poke our eyes out and worship Obama" club that permeates an increasingly impoverished and dysfunctional Black America. In short, he remembers the real Dr. King and what he stood for and is not going to let a mis-educated and misdirected Black America, stop him from reminding us how we really got where we are today and why so many of us are not moving forward but are rapidly falling behind in every measurable category,. This includes Family life, abortion, income levels, employment rates, prison stats, child poverty... you name it - if there is a a negative statistic, Black America usually is at or near the top of it. The trends have only accelerated under Obama.

Black, White, Latino, Native American, or even my rare Eskimo  readers, take a little time and listen to this audio program, you may not agree with everything in it, but you will come away with a very different view of Barak Obama and what he really has stood for, stands for and continue to push over the next four years.

Brothers and sisters. I liked Dr. King because he was a Christian and abhorred violence, hate and injustice. My time in the military made me really come to hate war and violence and the abominable way America uses war to fund powerful interests here in America. I consistently saw what the skin color and economic status of almost all of America's war victims were and are.

Dr. King was courageous about fighting this power while Obama has fawned over it, funded it, empowered it and bailed it out... with Public Funds. In short King fought this system, Obama slavishly serves it. As long as they can keep Black America on their faces in worship and adoration of Obama, they can continue to send Black America backwards with little or no resistance.

I think these comments are needed as well as we move into this most heated Gun Control debate. Back in MLK's day, things were very different and one of the reasons why we have Gun Control today a the Federal level and also in many States (like California), was because Black people took to protecting their communities with firearms when they could not count on the police  to do it, which were often populated with Racists and Agents of Hoovers FBI who were looking for ways to create incidents to kill black Leaders. The actions of these groups were one of the real reasons the Gun Control Legistaion of 1968 came about. Hoover and the FBI viewed Black Groups like the Panthers, the greatest threat to America.  These Gun laws were was mostly about keeping guns out of the hands of  Black Organizations who were protecting their communities, though admittedly not always as responsibly as they should have. The 'power' saw a threat and moved to quash it.

Former Superior Court Judge Lise Perlman wrote a book that deals with some of the issues behind the trial of Huey Newton back in those tumultuous days and talks a bit on how it effected Gun Control.  In fact according to some, it was indeed the Panthers pro-gun stance that began to put them on the political map and at one time. Believe it or not, the Black Panthers and the NRA were protesting together.

A very informative interview with Judge Perlman can be found on this link. It's pretty good, so check it out. This is the history your MSM does not want you to know, read or study. They want to re-write history so that wealth continues to flow to the wealthy out of the hands of the poor and they do that by comparing men like Obama to MLK whipping up people into half-witted adoration driven by political nonsense, while the real power picks your pocket, steals your home, raises your taxes, starts new wars all the while getting immunized by the President from any prosecution of their crimes and thus staying out of jail while your kids sit in prison for having an ounce of weed.

Finally I should say this. I have not, and will not go 'militant' on you. But I think it extremely important that when we look at these issues from Obama to Gun Control; Racism to Poverty, Bailouts to Food Stamps we must get a true historical perspective and not be brainwashed by clever re-writes of it by journalists in the pay of the 'power'. Also, I don't want anyone to come away with the idea that I dislike our President. While it is true I strongly oppose most of his policies and am quite disappointed by those whom he surrounds himself with, I also know that in order to get that office, you have to cut so many deals that you are essentially a figurehead for those interests with whom you cut your deals. So I will not demonize the man, just many of his policies.

Dr. King rejected the militantism of groups like the Panthers and Malcolm X. I think this was very much because he was a dedicated Christian and ordained minister. He got so much done not because he used the Gun, but rather used powerful words on justice, love and peace that mobilized a nation. That and the power of prayer brought serious change. It is his ways that I hope Christians all over the world mimic. Yet just because I have dedicated my life to Christ and non-violence and exhort other men and women of God to do the same, does not give me the right to tell someone else that he should be that meek when someone comes to his neighborhood or house to do violence and mischief to his or her home and family. That I think is a decision that rests with every man and woman and their own conscience and it is the height of hypocrisy to sign orders giving armed protection to you and yours while moving slowly to take that right from someone else especially in light of the fact that many cities in America are so financially strapped that they cannot afford to keep a viable police force.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(Eph 2:8-9)

Lest any man should boast.  I think what God is saying here is that God wants us to look squarely in the mirror and look at what we really are and then acknowledge that we, who have made Christ our Lord and Savior (let none of us forget the 'Lord' part of this) are given salvation as a gift and no matter what struggles we endure for his name's sake, salvation is not dependent on us but on what Christ did for us on the cross.  All the work was done by Christ on his cross. It is what is often referred to as the sufficiency of Christ.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
(Phi 4:13)

What this does not mean (as so many teach and even more live) is that once we are saved, we can just keep on sinning and doing whatever we want. If indeed a person has been saved, God's Holy Spirit dwells in that person and guides, teaches and admonishes him as we continue our walk with God. A person who just keeps on sinning or continually puts self first in their life after they claim to have been 'saved' almost certainly has not been born of God.

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
(Rom 8:13-17)

God is leading us to greater righteousness, but lest any man should swell up with pride at his or her 'rightousness' God makes it clear that the work of Salvation was accomplished by Christ on his cross, whose name is blessed forever more. Don't swell up with Pride. Paul had to deal with that one and the Lord gave him a thorn in the flesh, lest his pride got the better of him (2Cor 12:7ff)

Russia Creates 'Guantanamo List' In Response To US Actions

Word...
Dear readers, I know many of you probably wonder why there have not been longer posts this week. The simple reason is I am working on an Economic Crisis update that should be up early February.

But one thing I feel led to share with each of you is something that many Christians miss in their walk with God. While many are out there seeking a 'word from the Lord', visions and prophecies - 99 times out of a hundred, what people really need is to open their Bibles and get their word from there.

Often when God has a word for someone, it is because they have not listened to what God has already told them. Having been to a few Prophetic meetings and hearing them speak over people, if you listen carefully, you will often hear gentle rebuke behind the messages of exhortation and encouragement.

But this short note today is about another kind of 'word'. What kind of word? Well, not to put too fine a point on it, your word. What I mean is this, your word is one of the most important things you posses. That is not just so in your place in this world; family, business dealings  and friends, but even more importantly for your place in God's kingdom, which is eternal.

Do you know what I find lacking in Americans? They do not keep their word. When I lived in Europe this is one of the things that European folks would notice and talk about with regards to Americans. When an American says they were going to call or invite them to this or that affair or into their homes, a European takes you at your word. Whereas we Americans can be very 'flaky' and conveniently forget (a nice word for changing our minds) to honor our word.

A persons word in Germany, at least when I lived there was not just important in personal affairs, but in legal affairs as well. When you make a business deal with your word, in many instances, you are legally bound to honor it, whether or not you signed papers. I do not know if this is still so today but it was when I lived there. I want you to consider this. In Kingdom affairs your word carries great weight. When you say you are going to do something, you are honor bound to do it- to do or be anything else is frankly, to be false. God hates falsehood, wherever and however it manifests itself.

If you want to be faithful to God and his ways, you have to rid yourself of this major characther flaw that afflicts Americans: that is the light non-chalant way we view the words we speak, the commitments and promises we make. This goes from the smallest things to the much larger things. Did you make a commitment to give a recipe to your neighbor? Did you fulfill your commitment? It may seem like a little thing and it is, except when you fail to honor your word. Then it becomes a spiritual issue. Because in short, what you told your neighbor was a lie. You said you were going to do something and did not do it. Now I am not talking about genuine episodes of forgetfulness from which we all suffer, but when we know what we promised and for whatever reason, fail to follow through.

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
(Luk 16:10)

If you really want to be used of God you must obtain the mindset of one of God's children and that means having a heart full of integrity and whose word is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. Your willingness to keep your word goes directly to your own personal integrity.


(Job 2:3)  And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

(Psa 25:21)  Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

(Psa 26:11)  But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

(Psa 41:12)  And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.

(Pro 11:3)  The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

(Pro 19:1)  Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

(Pro 20:7)  The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

Throughout scripture we find that the issue of integrity is paramount to a sincere walk with God. A person who has no integrity has no walk with God, though the devil may have very well successfully fooled him into thinking he has one. I really think this describes a majority of Church-goers today in the US. I say this because I see no real difference in behavior in their actions than in those who make no Christian profession. There is a real, solid reason why so many people who do not serve God call Christians a bunch of hypocrites. That is because in so many cases, they are absolutely correct and their observation here is far more truthful that the words that emanate from the mouths of too many 'christians'.

Your word is a reflection of you. It is a very important way your spirit man interacts with this temporal world. Was it not our Lord who said...

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
(Mat 12:37)

Are you a man or woman of integrity? Does your word mean what it says?

But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
(Mat 5:37)

In short, a righteous man's word should be enough. 

Your words have power and your promises are of great importance to God. I hate to keep harping on Marriage but the issue just keeps coming to mind. When you stand before that Alter and make your promise before God and man to stay with your mate, you had better do it come what may. If your mate shows signs of mental distress or disease, remain married.. get him or her help, but stay married. Is your spouse in Prison on a 10-12 strech for Larceny? Stay married... AND faithful. Does your husband who was once a real 'looker' now resemble an oversized version of the Pilsbury Doughboy? Stay with him, sure, tell him he should lose a few pounds  or give him some hints but honor your commitment to him and to God. When you stand before him and give account I can assure you that the Lord is not going to hear your excuses about 'falling out of love' or needing to 'find yourself' when you filed those divorce papers. Not only is such person showing that he is a liar, but he is also a covenant breaker and the cause for another persons adultery. Did you hear that? Did you know that Adultery was a capital crime in the old Mosaic Law? There were not many of those but Adultery was one of them.  So let those who are considering pulling up in their spouses for ANY OTHER REASON than adultery, get real - you are most assuredly risking your eternal soul, For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. You gave your word on that altar, you had better keep it.

We must be very careful about the commitments we make, small or great. One of my old associates would always chide me about being a little non-committal about appointments and gatherings. My best buddy was a little taken aback when I did not just jump at the very great honor of being Godfather to his kids. It was not that I did not want to do it, it was that I know what that means and the long term commitment such a task entails. I also know that when those kids hit their teens there is a 90% chance they will turn from God and start to do things they should not. But my friend, who knows me only too well, understood that when I make a commitment, I keep it and while it is a little hard to pin me down at times or get one out of me, it is for the simple reason that I am not a flake, if I say something, unless it becomes impossible (like if invited for a gathering and my car breaks down on the way to it) , I will keep my commitments. Why? Because I know God is watching and demands that I keep them, no matter how small. I can remember my friends wife wondering why it was taking so long for me to decide being a godfather! It was as much for me as it was for them, I wanted them to be sure they wanted me to do it. I was honored and still am to do it


How are you with your word and your commitments? Is your word a reflection of the divine nature which is always true and in which there is no lie? Are you remarkably different from other Christians and know your eternal responsibility in keeping your word?  Know this, keeping your word is not optional. Either your words are true or they are false and no liar shall enter into God's kingdom.

My exhortation to my American readers in particular is to make a clean break with flaky-ness. Make your words count. Make your verbal integrity top priority in your daily walk, personal affairs, and business dealings.

Finally, for those of you who were seeking a 'word from the Lord' from me today, here it is -  dare to be different....


Keep your word.


Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
(Ecc 5:2)


Russia Looks To Ban Prayer
My Take? Looks like Putin and the RO Church are joining hands to create and maintain religious monopoly over Russian Society. Look who backed the recent anti-adoption bill in Russia.

Keep this in mind. The RO Church was totally infiltrated by the KGB when the Soviet Union existed. The names of KGB priests were never made public when it fell apart. Putin was once a senior KGB officer.

You do the math.

Did France Move Too Soon In Mali?
The question is whether the French intervention was an overreaction. Though the Ansar al-Din offensive was certainly designed in part to test the resolve of Malian military forces based in the “front-line” cities of Mopti and Sévaré, there was actually little chance for several thousand Tuareg fighters and their allies to take Bamako and the rest of southern Mali, a region where they would be heavily outnumbered by a hostile population that could count on a massive international military response to help expel the Islamists - Jamestown Foundation

Don't You Dare Conflate Obama And MLK!
MLK would have opposed every major policy decision Obama has made. That's why they killed Dr. King and Obama is in the White House... surrounded by White advisors. One served the people and the other serves Wall Street.

Had the assassin’s bullet not found him, Dr. King would have continued his implacable resistance to these unfolding evils, rejecting Barack Obama’s invasions, drones and Kill Lists with the same moral fervor and political courage that he broke with Lyndon Johnson over the Vietnam War. Absolutely nothing in King’s life and work indicates otherwise. - BAR

The Black press is just showing who really controls and owns it by trying to make such a false comparison. Its like comparing Stalin to Lincoln and making a claim to similarities just because both are White and influential. The two were complete opposites and only a propagandist (bent on deceiving) would try and conflate the two.

For my non-Black raders, I know many of you don't understand why I talk about these things. But as I said before, if you want to know where the elite are going to take America, look what they do to Black America. It's the 'Mikey' you used to see in those Life Cereal commercials; "Let's get Mikey". Well here in America it's,  "Let's get Blacky".


With Obama in the White Hose, the eilite can do whatever it wants to Black folks because they have this well dressed, good looking mannikin in the White house who will help them and some Uncle Tom leaders who defend him no matter how hurtful his policies are to all Americans, Black, White, Latino, Asian, Native American...

The Tom-ification of Black America is almost complete, but there are some very savvy holdouts who see things clearly and are not going to be bamboozled by Barak Obama or be intimidated by the shrills who get their pay from the Corporations who are running America into the ground.


Obama Puts The 'Ghetto Card' Away Now He's Elected
The Rapper lays it on the line to Obama.."You only play the ghetto card come election time!

I think it telling that while we have had a veritable onslaught of violence in Chicago where the victims are predominantly Black (and also very young), President Obama did absolutely nothing. Then when some white kids got shot, he was all tears and emotion.... for the TV cameras.

Kind of tells you want he really things of Black America doesn't it?

You gotta be White for him to act. (or be appointed to the real power ministries in his cabinet - DOD, Treasury, State, CIA). He may condescend to appoint some 'token' minorities for some of the lesser agencies, but it is those four appointments that show the character of any Presidents administration. What do I see?

There was a song from Procol Harum...

A Whiter shade of pale.

I know such  words are not going to get me invited for tea at the White House, but...

When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
(Pro 23:1-3)

More On The Working Poor
In America tonight, tens of millions of men and women will struggle to get to sleep because they are stressed out about not making enough money even though they are working as hard as they possibly can.  They are called "the working poor", and their numbers are absolutely exploding..

Leon Panetta Asks Pope For Prayer
May I ask all who have time to do the same? Leon has been under tremendous stress since taking over the DOD. The problems over there are myriad and very deep rooted. So deep that the DOD has an active campaign to keep key items dealing with corruption, and problems in readiness out of the headlines. Key articles that talk about these things are quickly removed from news organizations.


Take A look at the AF OSI site and their news archive and note the dearth of stories found there.

These are just a very small snippet of the stories they are telling you about. What is not posted are the number of General officers who are under investigation for various sundry crimes. That number is at an all time high. So high that it surpasses multi-year COMBINED highs (this is one of those stories 'removed' from military sites). I do not want to talk out of school here, but Mr. Panetta once had a serious drinking problem that he solved some years ago. But rumors have it that he has been so stressed out that he has returned to drinking more than he should. Know this as well, Panetta knows DOD needs some serious cutting to its budget, he is neither stupid or evil but he knows the cost of such a move that is not discussed in the MSM.

What the US does not want to do (and this is the major fear here, so listen up) is to repeat the mistakes of the Soviets made when they fell apart. That was that they had hundreds of key scientists/engineers who suddenly lost their jobs. They had key technical knowlege. What did some do? They took jobs in other nations. "Dimitri, we can triple your salary, give you a nice home on the beach, some beautiful female companionship if you come and work for us". Now, think about how many Chinese Americans, Indian Americans, Arab Americans who would be of great use to other nations who would love to get their hands on highly skilled people who can make and improve weapons systems.

The situation with our military is critical and Mr. Panetta needs your prayers. I would also ask all of you to pray for Secretary Clinton as well. These are jobs that sound great when one hears the title in the news but they are extremely difficult jobs that come at great personal cost. So before you spout hate at these leaders, pray for them. There is a lot more going on than you are ever going to hear in the news, media or blogosphere.

Fukushima: Symposium On Radioactive Waste Dumped Into Ocean
The only way people are going to find out the depth of this disaster and what it is going to mean is activists and 'outsiders' doing their own studies. The Government has done them and locked  them up behind the green over-classification door.

A unique, two-day symposium at which an international panel of leading medical and biological scientists, nuclear engineers, and policy experts will make presentations on and discuss the bio-medical and ecological consequences of the Fukushima disaster, will be held at The New York Academy of Medicine on March 11-12, 2013, the second anniversary of the accident. The public is welcome. - Nuclear Free Planet

France Launches Ground Campaign Against Mali Rebels
This is going to be a difficult war. I have yet to really sit down and do some deeper reading on this but from where I sit, it looks that these militia's are better equipped and organized that originally thought. Panetta has made it clear that there will be no US ground troops involved.

Alabama Prison Guard Found Guilty
Today, Matthew E. Davidson, a former corrections officer of the Alabama Department of Corrections, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Montgomery, Ala., to two counts of violating the civil rights of a former inmate at Ventress Correctional Facility in Clayton, Ala., and to one count of conspiring with other corrections officers to obstruct justice by covering up the incident. 

 Davidson was charged by a grand jury on March 8, 2012, with two counts of felony civil rights violations, four counts of obstruction of justice-related violations and one count of making false statements .   These charges stem from an incident that occurred at the Ventress prison on Aug. 4, 2010, when an inmate, 24-year-old Rocrast Mack, was severely beaten, suffered significant injuries and died the following day in a Montgomery hospital.

Obama's Cabinet: All White, All The Time
Now that he doesn't have to stand for re-election, the real Obama shows himself. All the key Power ministries go to the 'White men's club' and is about as diverse as a Klan rally.  Everyone else... back of the bus... and bring your shoe shine kit, new Secratary's might want their shows shined...

I am sorry to be so ethnic, but America is increasingly made up of many groups, Blacks, Latino's Asians and uh... here's a thought.. women.

I think he picks these guys because ultimately that is how Obama see's himself. Remember, this President really is half white and has gone to lengths to distance himself from a great many in Black America.

Viruses Infect Vital Control Systems For US Power Systems
ICS-CERT recently provided onsite support at a power generation facility where both common and sophisticated malware had been discovered in the industrial control system environment. The malware was discovered when an employee asked company IT staff to inspect his USB drive after experiencing intermittent issues with the drive’s operation. The employee routinely used this USB drive for backing up control systems configurations within the control environment. When the IT employee inserted the drive into a computer with up-to-date antivirus software, the antivirus software produced three positive hits. Initial analysis caused particular concern when one sample was linked to known sophisticated malware. Following analysis and at the request of the customer, an onsite team was deployed to their facility where the infection occurred. - DHS

Polish Farmers Protest Land Sales To Foreign Corporations
Digital Journal reported on Monday that, despite the fact that Poland had banned GM corn and potatoes, the Seeds Act was not vetoed by government and GM seeds can still be traded in Poland. However, GMOs are not the only problem in Poland right now. It seems there is a loophole in Polish law, that is being exploited to sell Polish farmland to foreign multinationals - FarmLandGrab.org

Given the cozy way the US and Poland have been recently (think ABM System), it is hardly surprising that the Poles have to give up more to Uncle Sam's globo-corporations.

The Bush Administration proposed deploying a ground-based mid-course defense (GMD) element of the larger Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) in Europe to defend against an Iranian missile threat.

Militarism Unfit For Putin's 'Kleptocracy'
President Vladimir Putin knows that his political survival depends on determination in suppressing the “internal enemies” and believes that Western interference in this domestic crisis has to be eliminated (Ezhednevny Zhurnal, January 8). He used to rely on Russia’s powerful role as an energy exporter for securing a position of strength for the country but is now seriously disappointed in Gazprom’s disrepute and weakness in the key European market. However, military might is still perceived as an infallible means of reasserting Russia’s invincibility, and Putin aims at revitalizing his regime by blending “patriotism” with militarism.

This reversion to the Soviet basics was on display last week as the Yuri Dolgoruky, the first Borei-class strategic submarine, was officially accepted into the navy, and its sister sub, the Vladimir Monomah, was launched from the dry dock—its construction to be completed while afloat (RIA Novosti, January 10). Putin came to Severomorsk but opted not to take part in the ceremony perhaps considering Yuri Dolgoruky, which was bedeviled by endless delays since its keel was started in 1996, as a not very lucky ship. - Jamestown Foundation

Avoiding Wars That Never End

Pakistan High Court Orders Arrest Of PM
All of this on allegations of corruption. The nation is now in a serious political crisis. The streets are packed with protesters in favor of a self proclaimed revolutionary leader.  So far, 16 people have been arrested in a scandal that stems from deep seated corruption in Pakistan but ignited by a power station scandal.

Now this may seem like not such a big deal, but when your nation has a power shortfall, and power comes on intermittently and you find out that your PM may very well be the problem, it becomes an issue. People have threatened mass suicide because of persistent power outages.

In the militant-infested northwestern city of Peshawar, hundreds of businessmen recently marched in a mock funeral procession — but not to protest bombings or kidnappings. The “corpse” they carried was an electric meter. - WP

A Reader From Singapore Relates His Experiences
“Thanks Mark for replying and being interested in how Christians are doing here in Singapore.

Christians in Singapore are quite blessed in that though we have a secular government and a multi-racial, multi-religious society, we are generally  well regarded by the government and the people of Singapore. We have freedom of worship and freedom to share the Gospel, within an acceptable confine in public space for maintaining religious harmony in a pluralistic society. To a large extent, we have our Christian fore-fathers to thank because, since the backwaters days of British colonial Singapore when there were wide spread poverty with largely uneducated immigrants, their faithfulness and integrity in doing good works punched above their weight and impacted many lives in the areas of education, health care and other social services – “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”. The Christian communities here are building on the spiritual foundation laid for us – English brethren and in more recent years in the 70’s and 80’s, American brethren contributed significantly to that foundation. Ultimately, I believe God is at work and is unfolding His sovereign plan for His people in Singapore to fulfil His great commission in the regions. Singapore churches are increasing reaching out to the relatively unreached regions.

….. Due to the importance of keeping religious harmony in our pluralistic society and being sensitive to people of other religions, we try to practise our faith in the market place in a little more discreet way by upholding Christian virtues in our doing, without being too overt in our public speaking -  "Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.".

But Christians in Singapore are increasingly facing the challenges of the post-modern world, with its allure of materialism, individualism and relativism of sexuality and morality. In recent years, we see a budding  militant movement in homosexuality and the fast weakening marriage institution. Learning from your articles, I believe it is the spiritual battle on a worldwide basis. I can only hold on by faith to the truth that His kingdom will know no end.

I thank God for your ministry,  Mark. The righteous shall live by faith and those who live by faith shall not be disappointed before our Almighty God.”

- Name Witheld

I solicit other Christians who live outside of the US, especially in Asia and Africa to relate their experiences here.  I will not use your name (unless you give me permission). I will only post what you want posted and leave out any other sensitive details out. Please, if it is at all safe to do so, let the world know how you are faring.

Watching Big Brother... Or is Big Brother Watching You?
No conspiracy theory. This is here now and many folks who have smart TV's just cannot be sure that someone cannot remotely turn on your mic and camera without your knowledge or permission. I strongly suspect it can  be done on some models... and given the way 3g and 4G networks are now being used (secretly) I think anyon who has one has reason for genuine concern.

Prayer Requests
Today I have two requests from and for readers about their specific situations. The first is from a man named Matt (name used with permission). He has lost his wife (she ran off with another man after she told him she did not 'love him anymore'), lost his job, recently just lost another Job at a temp agency and has been sleeping in a shelter.  He is very discouraged and feeling quite abandoned. I ask all of you to lift Matt up in prayer because it really sounds like he needs it. Pray God will find him a job so he can get out of the shelter but more importantly pray God to encorage him and give him strength in these times.

The second prayer is for a lady named Michele (name used with permission). She is having a difficult time dealing with several recent family deaths, most recently her sister. She is also dealing with some health issues of her own. I ask all of you to pray for Michele so that she recovers and that God gives her true comfort in this difficult time.

War In Mali: Islamists Counter France
As this piece says, this may turn out to be a long war. France wants to root out the Islamists and AQ linked (quasi) government but this looks like it may be much, much easier said than done. It appears that some of the troops are coming in from Mauritania, where Al Qaeda in the Mahgreb has bases. It also appears that Mauritania is doing what it can to stem the tide of support to the Islamic militants.

AEI has a small little backgound paper that you may find of use.  Americans involved in Jihad? Sadly, yes it can and does happen.

Trillion Dollar Coin: Utter Nonsense
Has this administration completely lost its senses? To even propose such a thing smacks of a real detachment from reality. This is the perfect way of telling the world that we have no plan to fix our fiscal situation other than stupid gimmicks. Obama should be ashamed of himself for even allowing such an idea to be floated.

Claim: Accused UK Pedophile/Rapist Was Satanist
This should not surprise anyone. There are rings of satanists all over the western world. Many of them are in positions of very great power. They hold ceremonies, sacrifice victims (like those missing kids you see on the back of milk cartons, homeless people, etc). They also have powerful networks of protectors. I want to stress, very powerful. It is why you see next to nothing done in the US about Child Protective Services. There have been investigations into this where the investigators wind up dead.

More here.

The reason why you hear so little about this is because if the truth were told, you would have many high level people sitting in office and among our elite running for cover. So when the truth starts to get out, a powerful network of satanists  goes to work to keep Americans from finding out what is really going on. Their key tool? Murder.

Satan is real and he has some real worshipers right here on earth and it is he who gives his servants power as he has great authority by virtue of his position as Prince of this world.

Blogger/Hacker Suicide Blamed On US Attorney
These Attorney's just have too much power. There was no reason for this as the injured party in the Government's suit (JSTOR) dropped the charges. Don't these guys have enough to do? Are there not enough rapists, murderers, fraudsters, molesters, drug traffickers, human traffickers for them to chase that they have to drive some young kid to kill himself?

Sounds to me like someone over at Justice needs their budgets cut.

Apple Losing The Phone Battle

Dell In Buyout Talks


11 January 2013
A Quick Note:
For many years I have answered many emails from my readers. I enjoy and continue to enjoy that pleasure. I love to hear from readers who are really looking to God for answers to the major issues of our time. Readers from all over the nation and world have contacted me.

One thing I must point out is that while I do not always respond, I do read each and every mail that comes my way (the the exception of those who just want to argue.. they go on my block list).  So if I do not always respond, please do not get angry. I have to manage how much time I spend on the computer between reading (I try and do that on Fridays, which is a low traffic day) writing the daily news and writing the longer pdf files and of course answering emails as well as some of the administrative/technical things that need to be done on a site like this.

I am not being rude when I do not respond. If I wrote detailed responses to all of my mail I would never get anything done! I know many of you do understand this and (FYI) no one has even hinted that they do not understand. Yet for souls in genuine distress, I will indeed drop what I am doing and do my best to help. 

But I feel I need to make this clear as well. A couple of my readers have gotten upset with me because I cannot and won't endorse their own personal sins. I just don't think they understand that I really do serve God and cannot compromise his words or commandments and frankly I am not going to. I am not going to soft peddle sin and rebellion. If I did, I would be false. So please...

I cannot tell you its OK for you to sleep with your boyfriend.
I cannot tell you its OK to steal money out of the company funds.
I cannot tell you its OK to invest in a porn distributer.
I cannot tell you its OK to divorce your spouse for any other reason than adultery.
I cannot tell you its OK to marry your gay lover.
I cannot tell you its OK to lie on your resume.
I cannot tell you its OK to sabotage your co-worker who is also up for the same promotion you are.
I cannot tell you its OK to deny Christ to get a high dollar job (or even keep the one you have)

If you want to argue with me about these things, you need to find another site or person who has the time for it. I don't. I can only tell you what God's standards are. You have to decide weather or not you are going to follow them or not. Some have called me a heretic because of my biblical stance on these and many other issues. That's OK, given what passes for Christianity in America today, if I was not occasionally called a heretic and reviled, I would be most, most concerned.

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
(Luk 6:26)

I have lost friends, been denied employment, been mocked and laughed at for my walk with Christ, often by childhood friends and former co-workers. I have had the highest people in government mock me and sneer at my work (yes, more than a few). I know what it means to serve God and have others mock me because of Christ. Many of you do as well. I can only tell you this  brothers...

Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
(Luk 6:22-23)

Stand firm, because brothers, for many of us, the road gets a little more 'bumpy' from here on out.

Your most humble servant in Christ,

Mark



Vaccine Tragedy Paralyzes 40 African Children
On December 20, 2012, a vaccination tragedy hit the small village of Gouro, located in northern Chad, Africa. According to the newspaper La Voix, out of 500 children who received the new meningitis vaccine MenAfriVac, at least 40 of them between the ages of 7 and 18 have become paralyzed. Those children also suffered hallucinations and convulsions. - Dr. Sircus

Media Organizations are utterly silent. America's (Uncle Tom) Black organizations are silent. They are still on their faces worshipping Obama. The Church is silent. Only a few dedicated activists are telling us the story.

The Gun Grabbers Keep Their Guns

Obama signs bill granting him armed Secret Service protection FOR HIMSELF for life. No other President has ever done this. Yet he wants to take YOUR Guns. Diane Feinstein, the who is at the forefront of the gun Grabbing debate CARRIES A CONCEALED WEAPON!

"You give up yours and I'll keep mine ...(I'll keep yours too!)."
-
the age old cry of tyrants and thieves.

Gun Grabber Bloomberg has 24/7 armed protection.
Gun Grabber Michael Moore has armed protection.

Tell me what you really think this debate is all about? Those with power keep their guns and the plebeians must beg the state for protection. Any political/racial/religious group can be disarmed and attacked at will by the state.  History has shown us time and time again that it is the State that is the biggest threat to those who have no economic or political power. Ask the Jews of Nazi Germany... oops.... you can't. Hitler gassed them.... after he took their guns.

That is exactly why the founders put the second amendment in the Constitution. To protect YOU from the historical tendency of those in power to abuse it. Why are they crying for it now with a concerted effort... now while the world still is in the midst of a major economic crisis (that is only worse than it was when it first started) and the secret (MSM will not talk about them) bailouts and plane loads (literal) full of cash being used to prop up banks. This is going on right now. Folks there are some real good reasons why Tim Geithner cannot wait to leave that job at Treasury.

Because a small but very influential part of our elite have some serious plans on abusing their power in the years ahead. Plans that would cause even the most brain dead and lethargic amongst the people to rise up. The collapse of western society is no conspiracy theory, it really could happen and will the day those bailouts stop -  the banks close, the ATM's stop working, gas pumps cannot process payments... Think about this. The fiscal cliff deal died. We cannot cut spending or raise taxes responsibly, the Treasury is empty and the only thing left to do is print money. There is no political will, despite our fiscal situation. What does that mean? It means that one day, not too long from now, what I just told you is going to happen.

I know it, the President knows it, the Fed knows it, The Treasury knows it and the MSM is doing its level best to make sure you don't know it.

I will be working on Economic Crisis paper over the next few weeks, hopefully it will be up by February 1st. I will lay out where I think we are heading, why and what it will mean to the ordinary Joe.

Finally, why is it that someone inside our media/government establishment  has allowed a UK citizen (Mr. Morgan) so much space on US airwaves to bash our constitutional form of government? The UK is a basket case, economically and politically- they have had to gut their once proud Navy...

Very soon, when the Ark Royal and its Harrier jets are scrapped, the Navy will be left for the next 10 years without a ship capable of flying aircraft, until the first of the two carriers now under construction is commissioned. The entire surface fleet will amount to no more than 19 warships - Guardian

The Navy used to be the pride of Britain. They have gutted their armed forces and cannot even afford to keep some of their major highways lit up at night and were it not for a major hand out from unnamed 'friends' they would be completely bankrupt today. Yet he's over here telling us how to run things! I am not bashing the Brits, just telling it like it is. Go and put the fire out at your own house before you tell me that my roof leaks.


Brothers, I smell a rat... a big fat rat.

Something here is seriously amiss.

No, if the gun grabbers have any point at all it is one that they deliberately miss. It is that the mental stability of large swaths of the US population is highly questionable. We have about 30 million Americans taking mind altering prescription drugs (because a doctor has diagnosed a mental health problem) and probably at least that many taking illegal drugs. I fully admit that some of these men and women should not have guns. But they should not be flying airplanes as pilots, be air traffic controllers or driving a bus or operating the safety controls at a nuclear facility or policing our streets. This is a debate that cuts into billion dollar profits and a powerful political lobby (that by the way, advertises heavily on TV). The Drug/Medical lobby.

I will leave you with this. In the recent proposals in response to the Sandy Hook shooting, Biden wants to have greater access to mental health care for more people. Sounds good does it not? Real caring and humanitarian, huh? But the politics goes like this. He does not want to cross that lobby so when he says 'expand access to mental health care'. What he is really saying
more Federal money to go to anti-depressants (which is the primary way we deal with mental health issues these days). Which of course means... you got it... more profits for the dope lobby. He cannot point the finger at the dope all of these shooters were taking when they went nuts... blowing people away. Democratic campaign money would dry up and besides, such proposals  wound never get through Congress.

That is why Washington will never solve a problem. Their job is to create new problems and keep the old ones in place that make money for those who donate money.

So this economic crisis is just that, a crisis and one that cannot be solved politically. This means that Plan B will be used. Plan B means they cannot have millions of pissed off Americans who just found out how much they have been lied to with Guns in their hands when they have to lower the boom because the banking system just failed. We'll cover more on this in February.

First Pastor, Then Wife Murdered By Colombian Militia's
Castilla's death follows the murder of her husband, lay evangelist Nelson Ramos, two years before, in January 2011, also at the hands of the ELN. The armed rebel group holds a virtual sway of terror over the area. - Compass Direct/WorldWatch News

Its hard for me to hear about the sufferings of the real Church. When re-listening to Ken Peters video a couple of weeks ago, I was struck by one thing he said. he said. He was tired of giving his message to the dead Churches in America, he said they don't listen. But the Church in many other places is far from dead. It's alive with ministries that preach, teach assist and bless others with the message of God's love, forgiveness and life eternal.

Where is the Church today? Increasingly it is outside of America and is often the unintended (hopefully unintended) victim of US foreign policy.

Here in the US we often hear it compared with the Laodicean Church. Yes, I think that is apt, but when I read the Lord's rebuke to the Church at Sardis, I think it too fits a great many of America's institutional Churches.

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
(Rev 3:1-6)

Sardis, Laodicea, the fact is that something is seriously amiss in most (but not all) of America's Churches. There are a few who have not compromised the Gospel nor whored their Churches for mammon.

Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white:

Let those who are engaged in serious compromise repent and come clean. God is more than willing to forgive and wash you anew. The key is the same one that is keeping so many Churches in grasp of the evil one and a theme Christ hits on in the above versus. What is that? Repentance is absolutely essential and today, it is not being taught. It's why you have fornication, adultery, unholy divorce, homosexuality, pedophilia, greed, larceny, pride, hate and all manner of evil sitting in the Church every Sunday. Parishoners who refuse to repent are frankly on the broad path way way to hell. There is no repentance today and this new gospel they are preaching is either soft-peddling it or removed the requirement for repentance altogether. This is a key aspect of the Great Falling Away that was prophesied for the last days. It is here, now. Many of the Churches in America are suffering from a kind of spiritual necrosis. My exhortation to you is to not sit too long in such a Church because that disease is contagious.

The heretics more and more are taking over the Church, they hate the bible, and hold Christ and his holy gospel in contempt. They have created a new gospel and a new Christ that does not save souls, but serves the Antichrist world system that is arising right before our eyes.

What was Christ crucified for? They called him a heretic and said he was a demon possessed. Why were the Jews trying to kill Paul? They saw him as a heretic. Why was it so hard to print the Bible back in the Middle Ages? Because the Church did not want its myriad heresies exposed to the people. Do you want biblical truth? Get into your Bibles and line up every religious teaching with the holy word of God. Do that and you will not go wrong.

But know this, when you do that and you will paint a target on your back and the devil will use others, of then the 'church' to attack you. You may very well wind up like this woman and her pastor husband. Count the cost brothers, and when you decide to move forward towards Christ and when you do never, ever look back.

Remember Lots wife.

They will kill you because you preach a gospel of love.

Do the 501(c)3 Churches and fake believers in America call you a heretic because you follow the scriptures and won't turn back from the truth the Holy Spirit has revealed to you in the sacred texts?. Rejoice! You have taken the most important step in leaving the apostate Church and coming into and more importantly remaining in true fellowship with Jesus Christ.

Martyrdom, in these times, is going to be the natural and most common end to many and probably most believers who comprise the Lord's little flock in these very last days.



Pastor Hooted Out Of Inauguration By Gay Rights Activists
Kind of sad but its the real America today, they don't want anything to do with the God of the Bible and of the Godly people who founded this once great but now rotting nation.

Iranian Pastor Released; Two More Detained
On 29th December we requested further prayer for pastor Yousef. Recall that in mid-December he was ordered to report to prison, initially on a daily basis, but when he reported on Christmas Day he was detained.

We are pleased to report that he was released from Lakan prison earlier today (7th January).

We regret to report that two other members from the same church network, Behzad and Mohammed-Reza, were arrested in raids on their homes in Rasht on 31st December. They are currently in a Ministry of Intelligence and Security detention facility and are expected to be transferred to Lakan prison shortly. Both face charges of action against national security, and Behzad is also charged with insulting Islamic sanctities. No trial date has yet been set. Behzad is single, whilst Mohammad-Reza has a wife and two daughters. - |MEConcern
 

Why Muslims Persecute Christians And Why The West Ignores It
Yes, the world is ignoring a major crisis. But if it is being ignored in the media, it is only because those folks who own much of the worlds media have made a point in deliberately ignoring a major problem. Turn on your major news networks and you hear nary a word about Christian persecution, burned out of their homes, raped or murdered.

Quoting the estimates of scholars that between half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left or been killed over the last century, Shortt states, “There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its Biblical heartlands.” - |Barnabas Fund
You can read the report at the Civitas site.

Facebook Bans SNL Star For Posting Abortion Photo's
Free speech? On Facebook? Surely you jest. Do you want to know the kind of evil the President has lobbied hard for? Was it not he who fought for partial birth abortions?

These are hideous procedures that the modern day Censors do not want you to see.

Censorship is as American as a Swastika and as patriotic as a flag burning and that pretty much sums up what I think of any corporation who engages in it.

It think it's  just plain un-American.
