And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. - (Hab 2:2)
<A Psalm of David.>
LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth in his heart.
He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour,
nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
In whose eyes a vile person is contemned;
but he honoureth them that fear the LORD.
He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent.
He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

News For 19 DecemberMore Young Americans Are Homeless
These young adults are the new face of a national homeless population, one that poverty experts and case workers say is growing. Yet the problem is mostly invisible. Most cities and states, focusing on homeless families, have not made special efforts to identify young adults, who tend to shy away from ordinary shelters out of fear of being victimized by an older, chronically homeless population. - NYT
Times are rough. Kid yourself not and just because you don't see it does not mean it can't or won't happen to you.
Be merciful to others at all times, not just the holidays.
If you really want to get to the bottom of these shootings, this is it. While there are many out there who want to use the corpses of those very young children to push their own narrow political agendas the reality is that sick minds are behind these shootings, not guns.
The US mental health system is broken and this is something those in Washington are being made aware of. Even the President is painfully aware of the problems. I have been told POTUS was deeply moved and has had some very sleepless nights over the tragedy in Conn. He knows the issue is really mental health, access to it and the over reliance on Medicines to 'cure' and 'treat' at considerable profit, mental health problems.
Should someone on mind altering prescrition drugs be flying a plane? Driving bus? Owning a Gun? Operating a chainsaw? While anti-gun advocates are out making political hay, writing bills in the blood of the kids, the real issues are not something they want to discuss. Let's say you do take away Guns. A guy determined to kill will just drive his car over kids crossing the street, or run through the mall with a chainsaw, or start slashing people with a kitchen knife. The problem resides in the mind, not in the tool used to satisfy a demented person's perverse desire. I have to say this, though it may sound a little strong. I just don't think these politicians and folks who are pushing for Gun control really care about those kids who were killed. They really care about their narrow agenda and 'seizing opportunity those little lives have provided them.
I am interested in real solutions that will really reduce the possiblity of this or something similar happening again and Gun control is a great knee jerk reaction, but it won't stop another massacre.
The real issues are less 'sexy' and are not going to be talked about in your heavily politicized blogs on either side of the issue. One has to do with patient privacy. Should those who have real serious issues be afforded that privacy when their jobs effect public safety? Should an air traffic controller be taking three anti dpressents pills, four times a day be directing airplanes? Should a policeman who is on the same medication be carrying a gun? These are the real issues no one wants to talk about. How do we identify those with serious issues? How do we deal with the privacy issues? Like I said, these are the real issues and one that the gun grabbers don't want discusses while they try and rush through bills, like NY's Cuomo.
Dear readers, the fact that Hitler, Mao and Stalin killed millions (each) right after they passed Gun control laws is no conspiracy theory. It is a fact written in the blood stained pages of history.
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (Yiddish: אױפֿשטאַנד אין װאַרשעװער געטאָ; Polish: powstanie w getcie warszawskim; German: Aufstand im Warschauer Ghetto) was the 1943 act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II, and which opposed Nazi Germany's final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka extermination camp. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place from 19 April, and ended when the poorly armed and supplied resistance was crushed by the Germans, who officially finished their operation to liquidate the Ghetto on 16 May. It was the largest single revolt by the Jews during World War II....Why was
...Support from outside the Ghetto was limited, but Polish Resistance units from the mainstream Home Army (Armia Krajowa, AK) and the communist Polish Workers' Party's militia People's Guard (Gwardia Ludowa, GL) attacked German units near the Ghetto walls and attempted to smuggle weapons, ammunition, supplies, and instructions into the Ghetto. Polish resistance provided the insurgents with a limited number of badly needed weapons and ammunitions from its meager stocks. Jewish right-wing resistance in the Jewish Military Union (Żydowski Związek Wojskowy, ŻZW) received large quantities of armament, including several automatic weapons, from the AK-affiliated National Security Corps (Państwowy Korpus Bezpieczeństwa, PKB). AK disseminated information and appeals to help the Jews in the Ghetto, both in Poland and by way of radio transmissions to the Allies. Several ŻOB commanders and fighters later escaped through the sewers with assistance from the Poles and joined Polish underground. A PKB unit commanded by Henryk Iwański ("Bystry") even fought inside the Ghetto along with ŻZW and subsequently both groups retreated together (including 34 Jewish fighters) to the so-called Aryan side. Although Iwański's action is the most well-known rescue mission, it was only one of many actions undertaken by the Polish resistance to help the Jewish fighters.
The Holiday Season
Even Ebenezer Scrooge eventually came to like Christmas and I think we as Christians should do our best to be wise in these times when everyone is celebrating the Holidays. This piece is not meant to cause anyone to stumble or turn to hating the holidays. Rather it is a look at the holiday its origins and where the real spirit of Christmas comes from.Feinstein NDAA Amendment Stripped From House Bill
Christmas has been a matter of some controversy for a number of reasons. First off, one of the few things we can be certain of about Christmas is that Christ was not born on December 25th, or anywhere near it.
When was Christ Born? We do not know, though some scholars have said that it was more likely an event that occurred in the Fall, though the evidence for this is rather scant. What we do know is that Christmas was actually turned from a pagan into a Christian celebration with the rise to power of the Emperor Constantine. The origins of the Celebration of the 25th of December as the birth of Christ was and is far more in keeping with ancient rites dealing with the worship of the sun, being the time of the winter solstice. This was a well known celebration that was celebrated for many centuries in many different cultures.
Constantine's law of…321 [C.E] uniting Christians and pagans in the observance of the "venerable day of the sun" It is to be noted that this official solar worship, the final form of paganism in the empire…, was not the traditional Roman-Greek religion of Jupiter, Apollo, Venus, and the other Olympian deities. It was a product of the mingling Hellenistic-Oriental elements, exemplified in Aurelian's establishment of Eastern Sun worship at Rome as the official religion of the empire, and in his new temple enshrining Syrian statutes statues of Bel and the sun…. Thus at last Bel, the god of Babylon, came into the official imperial temple of Rome, the center of the imperial religion. It was this late Roman-Oriental worship of one supreme god, symbolized by the sun and absorbing lesser divinities as subordinates or manifestations of the universal deity, that competed with young Christianity. This was the Roman religion that went down in defeat but infiltrated and colored the victorious church with its own elements, some of which can be seen to this day. - Cramer, Frederick H. Astrology in Roman Law and Politics. American Philosophical Society 1954To summarize, Sun worship was prevalent throughout the anceint world. Even from the days of the Egyptian empire, they too worshiped the Sun as God. The term 'Ra' actually means sun. But interestingly it is from these legends that we discover the first references to the Mother Child cult, which dates back many millenium and was certainly a clever counterfeit of the anient primordial promise given to Adam right after the fall that there would be a redeemer that must come from the woman who would redeem mankind from his sins. Here is something I wrote in my 2000 book, 'That He May Run That Readeth It"
This Mother and Child Worship continued, only this time the names were changed to Isis and Osiris. In Asia, Mother-Child Worship went under the names of Cybele and Deoius, in Rome as Fortuna and Jupiter. The child in the early Babylonian system of belief was a person of immense stature and power. This is one of the foundations of the mystery schools, this Mother-Child worship and the worship of the mother as the “Queen of Heaven”. This system of belief predates much of written history. This evidently was taken from the original promise of God of a redeemer from the seed of the Woman (Gen 3:15). As time passed, this Mother Goddess religion transformed itself into various fertility cults that flourished in the ancient world. These mystery schools had special important ‘holy’ days that were celebrated. Consider this, it was during the Winter Solstice that the son of Isis the Egyptian Queen of Heaven, birth was celebrated. It is very interesting to note that these festivals were not celebrated by the Church of the first two centuries of its existence[iv]. The introduction of these pagan/satanic rituals into the Christian mainstream only began around the fourth century AD. To which “Christian’ holiday am I referring? Christmas for one. Some of the early church fathers have commented on the exchanging of gifts at Christmas time as being an observance of Saturnalia, a pagan winter festival. The Babylonians had an old fable of an evergreen tree[v] that sprang out of a dead tree stump symbolizing Nimrod, later known among the mystery schools as Tammuz. The Bible makes some reference of these pagan customs and holidays (Jer 10:3-4; Ezek 8:13-14; 1King 14:23). These all occurred during the winter solstice, that is, the time the ‘Church’ celebrates Christmas. The risen ‘child god’ rises from the dead three days after the winter solstice. The celebration today is commonly referred to today as Christmas. This is clearly NOT a Christian holiday. Despite the traditions of men, passed of as truth in the modern American Pulpit, this Holiday, is deceptively decked with lots of goodwill, songs and presents in order to deceive the masses into rejecting the truth. The scriptures (with obviously excellent reasons) do not give the date or even season of Christ’s birth. It is conspicuously silent on this matter. Yet the American apostates spend large sums of money and weeks of effort on ensuring this holiday is properly celebrated. The Church leaders today are so reticent to enlighten their congregations, though they know fully well that these celebrations are of the enemy. These ministers are in grave error. Thus, they erect their evergreen trees in the church, three days after the winter solstice exchange gifts and think they do God service on a day that was NOT Christ’s birthday[vi].
The institution of these pagan holidays into the mainstream of Christianity was certainly done much for expediency[vii]. It was easier for pagans to become “Christian” if they did not have to give up their holidays and rituals. It was these festivals which were carried from Ancient Babylon to Greece then on to Rome to modern day “Christianity”. Most church leader today deliberately mislead their congregations as to the origin of these holidays and what God has revealed about his opinion of them. Most pastors are fully aware that these are pagan holidays. Most attempt to justify their paganism with self deception such as “well, were here to celebrate Christ’s’ birth not debate theology.” These pastors ignore the warnings of scripture of these holidays and because they are too weak and lukewarm to make a stand against this paganism, they just go along with the flow. I believe the Holy Spirit was acting out of its supreme wisdom by not including any information as to the date of Christ’s Birthday, God knew that we would construct elaborate festivals in it’s commemoration. The only day Christ commanded us to celebrate was the Last Supper, the church has even missed to boat on this too, as Christ COMMANDED us to drink wine and eat bread in remembrance of him. The Church, however, feels it is to ‘holy’ to obey Christ, and usually will not serve wine, as Christ commanded. Thus they nullify the Commandment of God through the traditions of men. How these shepherds can stand in the pulpit week after week and knowing these things is unthinkable.
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.What Paul is saying here is that despite calls that it was necessary to observe this or that Feast or holyday, Christians were not under any obligation to observe or not to observe. But the passage, when one looks at it closely is referring to Jewish holidays. Notice Paul delineates this when he states "Which are a shadow of things to come", this is clearly a reference to the old Jewish holidays, which undoubtedly some believers were attempting to get Christians to observe. So the applicability of this verse with regards to Saturnalia (Christmas) is somewhat wanting.
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
The first evergreen trees erected in homes were symbols of worship to the pagan sun god, Nimrod. They were not called Christmas trees, but they were items that symbolized the resurrection of Nimrod through his son, Tammus. The tree was decorated with red berries and little balls that represented the sun and the sun-god these ancient people worshipped. The prophet Jeremiah warned the Israelites against taking part in such practices in Jeremiah 10: 2-5. The tradition of decorating a tree has evolved into a Christian practice, but when a true investigation of tree idolatry is undertaken in the Bible, Christians will find that tree idolatry was strictly forbidden. "And Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all their fathers. For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every hill, under every tree" (1 Kings 14:23). - Christmas Trees
There is indeed something very deceptive about Christmas. While you will find a hundreds of 'christian' sites who make excuses about these things, I would ask anyone to go and find in the scriptures where you find such a tree in reference to the Messiah, Christ, and not the ancient abominations that caused the Lord to reject Israel and cast them out of their land.
Now having said all of this I do want to say this and give my PURELY PERSONAL opinion, not any kind of scriptural or spiritual exhortation.
I have long resisted celebrating Christmas for the reason stated above. This does not mean I go around being the 'death of the party' at holiday season. If invited over for a meal, I will show up and enjoy myself with everyone else. If a gift is expected, I will bring one especially for kids, I mean... how can you not give them something!? Who is going to argue with reading the scripture verses on Christ's birth during anytime of the year. Certainly not me, there is not enough bible reading these days anyway.
I think one thing Christians can do in these times is to significantly reduce the temptation for supporting the commercial aspect to Christmas. Stop buying so much stuff. The best time to buy someone a gift is when they don't expect it and at Christmas time, everyone expects a gift and some will put you on a serious guilt trip if you don't give one. A gift signifies something that one is not obligated to give but does anyway. Now brothers, that is a gift. If one feels compelled to give because of social stigma if they don't, then that is not really a gift.
The Commercialization of Christmas is not something that is new, as the article (linked above) on Saturnalia describes, this was also the practice in ancient Rome. It has merely been transfered here to New Babylon, which celebrates the festival right around the winter solstice.
Well, I am sure that Christians in Ancient Rome had to deal with these important questions as well and I think it important that we note that there are no scriptural prohibitions on celebrating this. Paul was a Roman and all the Apostles lived and ministered under Roman rule at least a good portion of their lives. Though we should note that Paul did not encourage participation in certain pagan activities (see 1Cor10:20ff).
Me? I am not going to go out of my way to celebrate Christmas, I really never have, but I am not going to be a kill joy either. If there is a family gathering, I will attend, if there are friends and family who request my presence, I will be there. But there will be no Christmas tree's or wreath's in my house. I have respect for how God looked upon some of these things in the Old Testament and in no way want to offend him.
I write this not by way of commandment or even exhortation, but rather as one who wishes to give you a little knowledge and wisdom in these times.
Let the reader, pause and consider and pray accordingly.

News For 17 DecemberPause And Consider
During these holiday's let us pause and consider all the blessings God has given to each of us. Let us not always be the 'needy' supplicant before God's throne, but rather, let us all enjoin in some prayers of thanksgiving. Those of you who have places to live, food to eat, good health, kids, cars to drive, jobs to go to, friends to spend time with and a country where you can worship God in peace, let each of us, rather than pester God with our constant drone of requests, rather offer up some prayers of deep and sincere thanksgiving.

God willing, my efforts will be to ensure that they reap from it. Next year promises to be full of activity on every front, political economic and most importantly spiritual. With the time that God gives me, I will do my best to keep sowers as well as others as well informed as possible so that you may understand the times.

Awalaki was a truly bad man. It was he who was apparently behind the Fort Hood massacre as a key instigator. Clearly the US felt it needed to get rid of him. But in the process the US killed two children, at least one of which was an American.
Is that right? Should a President have the right to kill Americans without any legal review?

I am always leary of politicians who quote scripture, but given his reticence the last four years in doing so, it is rather noteworthy.
What is sad is that another one appears to have been let loose.
What do I make of these gun tragedies? They are just that, horrible tragedies, but I cannot help but wonder if there is another power behind them. Men who are determined to undermine the rights of Americans to protect themselves from out of control police who also go on whacked out killing spree's... in uniform and get off scot free. Keep in mind that anyone who protects himself from uniformed wacko's are killed. That is what appears to this writer to be Bloomberg's utopian vision of the future.
I am not here to blast policemen, the vast majority of which are honest, hard working men and women doing their best to keep our street's safe, at times at great personal risk. No, my point is more fundamental.
These days very wealthy interests from certain socio-economic backgrounds are working overtime to kill Second Amendment rights in America. They come out so fast after each tragedy on the National News scene that one has to wonder if they were in the studio getting their make-up done before the shooting happened.
The Mayor of the Neo-Police state city of New York, Michael Bloomberg and the Owner of the News Corporations (Fox) Murdoch, come immediately to mind. New York is the city where being Black on a Friday night has pretty much become a crime.
Yet as I said the other day, no one wants to talk about what prescription drugs these shooters were taking. What we do know is this latest guy was indeed having some mental issues that were identified by those close to him (NPR radio this AM). Was he taking some anti-depressants, which have been known to cause bizarre behavior? No one is saying. The Colorado guy (Batman shooter) was undergoing some kind of mental experiments and a gag order ensued over the press. His bizarre behavior, post tragedy has been pretty well documented.
Do you get the impression that perhaps, just perhaps these tragedies, at least some of them are being staged for the express purpose of disarming the citeznery? Before you laugh, read your history. Hitler, Stalin, Mao and a host of other men also believed strongly in Gun control. My guess is that these tragedies are not totally unrelated to this. There is a lot of power behind the gun banning movement. We hear about the power of the NRA, they are nothing compared to the power of finance working to get rid of Self Defense for the plebeian classes. These other interests don't just work in the US,as the NRA does, but all over the world. They want the people disarmed while governments AND corporations (mercenaries) are armed to the teeth, with some really crazy weapons.
Think about it long and hard. I own no guns and have no plans to. I have renounced violence for me personally. But history is pretty clear and consistent; a gun banning government goes on a killing spree against its own citizens. It happens with alarming regularity and the death toll consistently reaches the millions (Hitler, Stalin, Mao) before the killing stops.
Now who would want to do a thing like that?
It is my hope that the President comes up with a common sense approach to the problem. One that perhaps temporarily removes firearms from those taking a certain range of anti-depressants and when they are no longer taking them, they can get their guns back. That would be a far better solution than those proposed by others whose real motivations and constant cry of more gun control are considerably less honest, would want implemented who really want all guns banned from even honest law abiding citizens. But I think such a solution would satisfy most reasonable people who understand that there must be a balance. We can't have folks taking a handful of mind altering pills three times a day running around with guns. That indeed would be crazy.
Please pray for the President on this. No sane person wants to see any kind of repeat of this horrible thing.
New Chinese Leader Paints Path For Next 5 Years
The 18th Party Congress Work Report outlines policy guidance for the next five years and thus provides a preview of the type of policies that the incoming Xi administration is likely to pursue . The main theme permeating the Work Report centered on solidifying the domestic and international foundations for China’s development as a great power. Domestically, the Work Report called for carrying out structural economic reforms to sustain balanced growth and systemic political reforms to improve governance and boost the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) legitimacy. Guidance on Taiwan focused on laying the foundations for peaceful unification. The Work Report also called for stepping up efforts to shape an international order that is more responsive to Chinese power and reiterated Beijing’s determination to defend its growing array of interests. - Jamestown Foundation

Here we are talking of economics and here 'death' that takes the form of serious economic distress. Millions of Americans are and have already felt this distress. Many are still unemployed or are working in jobs that pay far less than they made before. What happens to such people? One of the things that happens is.... you guessed it, foreclosure.
Many, many more are going to feel this distress before this economic crisis is over and many, many Americans are going to have to (be forced to) make some very serious economic adjustments. This crisis is going to last another 10 years at least and it will mean steadily declining wages for most Americans. Even those in the Health Care industry where everyone is predicting enormous 'growth' (which is merely a redirection of America's dwindling economic resources, especially of her working class) into Health Care - this sector will not be immune, though it will take some time for the real dark side of Obamacare to rear is head. Why will this sector not be the 'great hope' everyone is claiming?
Simple, its economics 101 - Rule #1: You cannot draw blood from a turnip. A guy who has no job has no resources to pay insurance. A guy making $8 an hour is not going to be able to afford medical care. He is going to be doing real good to have enough gas in his car to get to work, let alone paying any kind of deductible for a doctor. Which leaves cash strapped state governments and a technically insolvent Federal Government to pick up the bills. Where is this money going to come from? Business who are already fleeing America?
Perhaps the money can come from hallucinogenic dollars from the opium pipe our leaders and economists have been smoking where ethereal delusions keep one locked in a state of mental dysfunction that feels too good to give up.
This is a terrible tragedy. One that begs a lot of questions. We cannot and should not forget the tragedy we saw in Colorado and the dark connections to mind control that came up. We should not forget that soon after it was learned that this guy was working with some people on some kind of FEDERALLY FUNDED Psychiatry study they put a gag order on the whole affair and put a lid over the whole thing. There is much more that happened in that episode than authorities are telling you. One of the things you did not hear is that the batman shooter had a copy of the movie (before it was released) on his hard drive. All indications are that this guy was programmed by someone else to do what he did. He was not a 'lone nut'. Notice how carefully the media is characterizing this new guy as 'reclusive' not that he may have been participating in some medical experiment by a major drug manufacturer, or was prescribed the same kind of drug many of the other shooters have been taking. These are aspects that 'the power' will break all the rules to make sure you never hear about.
I don't know what happened but what I do know is that mind control is no conspiracy theory. It is very real and can be done and some countries are light years ahead of the US. Using movie theaters owned by America's enemies that are located in every major US city wold be a great 'unrestricted warfare weapon' in the arsenal of those who hate us.
There are some very major, major happenings going on in the realm of unrestricted warfare that are probably the most dire threat this nation has ever faced. I simply cannot get into it as I have been warned point blank to not talk about it.... or else. But simply put, this nation is under attack on multiple fronts from an enemy that is extremly wiley, devious and possesses an utter contempt for any form of morality.
This episode may be just one small blip on the scale of a war you are not being told about. I say blip, not to diminish the horrible tragedy that took place, but to emphasize the potential death toll from what our enemies have already woven and launched against the US.
Brothers, the devil is very busy. Today he does not wear horns, hooves and a pointed tail, but a doctors smock, a business suit, or even a Federal Law enforcement uniform. He is very busy and gets away with his dirt because so very few recognize him when he is doing his dirt. The so called Church least of all. They often are working for the devil, not against him because when you're in satan's service...
The pay is pretty good .
Today, Church goers more readily read, not from the book of Exodus, but the book of excuses; not the books of the major and minor prophets, but the book of profits; not the book of Jude, but the gospel of Judas.
Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD. And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.As it was then so it is now. We have a lot of folks in Church claiming to want to hear the Word of the Lord but when he speaks they don't listen. When he gives them commandments, they don't do them. The fully 'agree' with God. That is, until it comes time to change their own behavior. Then they consult with the serpent who tells them of the ways to get around God's commandments. These are those who, on that day, shall stand without and say, "Lord, Lord, open unto us..." (Matt 25::11ff)
There are a whole lot of folks who are claiming to be God's people and only a very few who really are. Let us all, who know him strive to enter in by the strait gate, for many shall seek to enter in and shall not be able. Let us put our hand to the plough and do the works of him who called us so that we may be accounted worthy to escape the wrath of God that shall come upon the earth and to stand before the Son of Man.

The police state marches on and because the President is half black, no one marks it, no one cares and liberals are just waiting to line up to get their free Prozac, Zoloft, Viagra and morning after pills from Obamacare.
If innocent folks have to die and be tortured, they frankly just don't care as long as they get their free drugs.
This is really good and shows you the power of propaganda has over Black America and its leaders who are nothing more than front men for the very richest men in America. How do you get a TV show on MSNBC? You Bow before the owner of the station who pocketed billions from the Federal Bailouts of the banks. 16 Billion to be more exact. It was GE/MSNBC. Want to see two black misleaders on that station giving praise to the guy who facilitated all that cash going to him? Here it is.
Why is black America still at the bottom of the rung and begging for the leavings from Uncle Sam's table? Because Black leaders are not there to help black people, they are there to keep the rich rich, and black folks begging for a handout.
They pretend that Obama sincerely wants to help Black folks, who were by far the hardest hit by the failing economy, both before and after the meltdown of 2008. But, not only has this president rejected, as a matter of principle, targeted assistance to Black communities, his administration refused to spend most of $7.6 billion in housing aid set aside by Congress for hardest hit communities – disproportionately African American. Obama twice froze the wages of the disproportionately Black federal workforce. He does not miss an opportunity to impose disproportionate suffering on Black and poor people.It's hard to have respect for a people so easily misled and bamboozled by a corporate puppet with dark skin. It's hard to have a lot of pity for a people who seem so determined to destroy themselves and determined to live in a state of willful ignorance. And the truth is, I just don't think God has a lot of pity left for Black America.

News For 12 DecemberThe Abomination That Maketh Desolate
Grace and peace be to all of my readers, who love and serve the Lord. Monday night, I was directed not to write until I had something prophetic to write. So when I got up I just did not know what to make of that divine command. So I did some chores around the house, took care of a little personal business and then went out washed my car and went grocery shopping. While out I was wondering what God wanted me to say and while on the way home, he reminded me of what one reader asked me after I wrote the 70 weeks entry. So that is why there was no news update yesterday and this piece was written.
Some of you have asked me about that last prophetic piece I put up about the 70 weeks; When does it start and what should we look for? The answer is found written in the scriptures. It is not too difficult to find and it is not written in a super difficult verse. In fact it is a very important point that Christ emphasized with the words, "whoso readeth, let him understand" (Matt 24:15). When Christ says something like that, it behooves us to pay particular attention to it because it is very important.
And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. (Dan 12: 7-9)
Let's get something straight here. Christ told us that we the reader must understand this, but from the passage here, we find out that Daniel, who was originally given this prophecy, did not understand, nor was he meant to. Daniel had is role to play and was greatly beloved of God. But these mysteries were not his to understand. The angel makes it clear that this mystery will only be revealed at the time of the end and the wise are the ones who shall understand. The wicked shall not understand this mystery. It is our job to attempt, as best as we can, to obtain the wisdom that God has for us in these versus.
The beast system/antichrist /man of sin will be granted the power to scatter the Holy people. One of the first thing we must do when studying these versus is get context. What is the prophecy referring to, the Messiah or the indignation? Lets go back and look at what is said in Daniel Chapter 8.
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.Here we note that both the sanctuary and the host (military) are destroyed or trodden under foot).
(1.) the Holy Land (Exo_15:17; compare Psa_114:2);
(2.) the temple (1Ch_22:19; 2Ch_29:21);
(3.) the tabernacle (Exo_25:8; Lev_12:4; Lev_21:12);
(4.) the holy place, the place of the Presence (Gr. hieron, the temple-house; not the naos, which is the temple area, with its courts and porches), Lev_4:6; Eph_2:21, R.V., marg.;
(5.) God's holy habitation in heaven (Psa_102:19). In the final state there is properly “no sanctuary” (Rev_21:22), for God and the Lamb “are the sanctuary” (R.V., “temple”). All is there hallowed by the Divine Presence; all is sanctuary.
An entertainer (Rom_16:23); a tavern-keeper, the keeper of a caravansary (Luk_10:35).
In warfare, a troop or military force. This consisted at first only of infantry. Solomon afterwards added cavalry (1Ki_4:26; 1Ki_10:26). Every male Israelite from twenty to fifty years of age was bound by the law to bear arms when necessary (Num_1:3; Num_26:2; 2Ch_25:5).
Saul was the first to form a standing army (1Sa_13:2; 1Sa_24:2). This example was followed by David (1Ch_27:1), and Solomon (1Ki_4:26), and by the kings of Israel and Judah (2Ch_17:14; 2Ch_26:11; 2Ki_11:4, etc.). - Albert Barnes Notes On The Bible
Daniel 8 is talking about the Ram and the He Goat, a subject I have talked about at length on the site. We are talking about the kingdoms of Media and Persia (Daniel 8:20). Here is where I think some expositors miss a point, they always point back to Antiochus as a fulfillment of this passage. The problem with this is that Christ referred to this event long after Antiochus was dead a buried as being yet future. We notice here the passage "in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have come to the full' (vs 23). There is a fullness of sin and we are dealing with and seems best to be viewed as an end time event (see Rev 14:15ff) and when sin has ripened, God's wrath is revealed. We also note that the messenger sent to Daniel begins his revelation to him by saying "Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision."( 8:17). So this is an end time vision. Now in many ways Antiochus fulfilled this prophecy, but let us remember that Jesus said there was another Abomination of Desolation that was to occur. This individual who commits this crime is a powerful entity and has or rather, will have the power to cast down truth to the ground (Dan 8:12). In other words, his kingdom is based on lies, or in a more modern sense propaganda. It will be very effective. Let us remember what Paul said about the man of sin.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
These two passages are referring to the same person, the same event at the same time. The latter day indignation which will usher in the final half of the 70th week of Daniel. Once again we see an abomination (blasphemy/sacrilege) and a casting of truth to the ground, for he is the great deceiver of man. Israel will be scattered and under God's severe chastisement, but not judgment. ( see also Rev 12::6)
The question here needs to be understood here about what is meant by 'Temple' of God. There are many theories about it. Some opine that since the body of Christ is now the Temple of God, some kind of act must be committed by a deceived and apostate Church. On one level this may sound 'sound', at least from a purely allegorical perspective. Yet when one Considers the way these prophecies were given to Daniel, this interpretation leaves much to be desired. Again context is very important here.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (Dan 9:24)
Daniel's prophecy is directed specifically at Daniel's people, the Jews for whom this vision was an answer to his prayer for his people. I think what we gentiles need to keep in mind when studying scripture is that the Church age was a mystery to the Old Testament prophets. It was not clearly delineated in the Old testament. Why not? God's original plan was to have a Holy Israel, one that was full of righteousness and the Glory of God. It was that kingdom that was to draw the Gentiles to God. Israel messed up and rebelled against God and became just as bad as and at times worse that the Gentile nations she was to lead to salvation. Thus God was forced to go to plan 'B'. That being the Church age. Since Israel were not bringing forth the fruits that God wanted of his people, he turned to the gentiles, in the hopes they would bring forth the fruit of love, righteousness and justice befitting the people of God.
I cannot help but think God is somewhat disappointed with what passes for the Church these days, indeed if he even lays claim to much of it, which I suspect more and more, he doesn't.
So this prophecy of the 70 weeks is all about Israel and she and her fate are the central theme. This is true as well as the last three and a half years (1290 days). Once again God's attention returns to Israel. What we will see is the time of Jacob's trouble.
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.Clearly this is an end time event as we see it culminates with the Christ's reign. But note what it says here, there is no day like it. Is there any parallel in the New Testament. Yes there is, written plainly.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.Here this prophecy of Christ is again focused on those in Judea that there would be great tribulation, like the world has never and will never see again. In short, I think it clear that both refer to the time of Jacob's trouble, which will culminate in a Global war that will center on Jerusalem and end with the Sudden, powerful and yes, violent return of Jesus Christ. It is a correct saying that Christ came first as a lamb, but will return as a Lion.
Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.You can read more on this here.
This piece may not be as well organized as it could be as a book could be written on this.
This site contains a great many articles that touch on these issues and I do not feel I need to repeat myself here today. Let me stress here that this is NOT a teaching ministry, but this subject is of extreme importance to the end time believer and don't kid yourself, you will not be raptured before this event comes to pass.
May God richly bless all who diligently study to gain that wisdom that leads to righteousness and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

The National Intelligence Council Maps Out Future To 2030
Every few years the NIC comes out with one of these most interesting reports. What's great is that they provide a declassified version to us peons. It's long and involved but full of thought provoking stuff. Warning, 24megs so its a large file.
The Muslim Persecution Of Christians: Oct 2012
Canada: As happens regularly in Egypt (see below), a Molotov cocktail was hurled through the window of a newly opened Coptic church near Toronto. Unlike in Egypt, however, firefighters came quickly and little damage was done: "Police have no suspects or motive in the incident."
Egypt: A Muslim mob, consisting mostly of Salafis, surrounded St. George Church in the Beni Suef Governorate. Armed with batons, they assaulted Christians as they exited the church after Sunday mass; five were hospitalized with broken limbs. The Salafi grievance is that Christians from neighboring villages, who have no churches to serve them, are traveling and attending St. George. The priest could not leave the church for hours after the mass, even though he contacted the police; they came only after a prominent Coptic lawyer complained to the Ministry of the Interior concerning the lack of response from police. "I want the whole world to know," he said, "that a priest and his congregation are presently held captive in their church, afraid of the Salafi Muslims surrounding the church." Separately, a group of Muslims, led by Mostafa Kamel, a prosecutor at the Alexandria Criminal Court, broke into the Church of St. Mary in Rashid near Alexandria and proceeded to destroy its altar, on claims that he bought the 9th century church; in fact it had earlier been sold to the Copts by the Greeks, due to the Greeks' dwindling numbers in Egypt. Two priests, Fr. Maximos and Fr. Luke, rushed to the police station to try to bring the police to help. Kamel and his two sons also came to the police station, where they openly threatened to kill the two priests and their lawyer. "We stayed at the police station for over six hours with the police, "Fr. Maximos said, "begging prosecutor Kamel and his two sons not to demolish the church." Fr. Luke said that the prosecutor had so far lost all the cases he brought against the church, "So when this route failed, he tried taking the matter into his own hands."
Indonesia: On a Sunday, "unknown assailants" set fire to the Madele Pentecostal Church in the city of Poso by dousing a collection box with petrol and setting it alight. Flames eventually spread to the pastor's residence. Only the intervention of the fire department and volunteers prevented the blaze from causing major damage to the two buildings. Weeks earlier in the same region, Christian homes were attacked and bombed. Also, two law enforcement agents who were investigating a recent attack on the Christian community were kidnapped; their murdered bodies were later found dumped near an "extremist Muslim" group's training ground. Because Poso has a large Christian presence, Muslim attacks are frequent, including the 2005 beheading of three Christian girls going to school. Meanwhile in Aceh, Indonesian officials, using the famous pretext that a permit had not been issued, shut down nine [more] Christian house-churches and six Buddhist temples; they argued that homes cannot be used "for religious ceremonies or functions." According to the report, "Local Muslim extremists welcomed the decision. Yusuf Al-Qardhawy, head of the Aceh branch of the Islamic Defence Front (FPI), called on other jurisdictions to follow Banda Aceh and enforce Islamic law and stop any non-Muslim worship activity that is not approved." Further, the province of Aceh is the only one "which is subject to Sharia. Compliance is ensured by the 'morality police,' a special force that punishes violations in dress and behaviour."
Iran: Security forces dismantled a network of four underground house churches and arrested seven Christians on a Sunday night. Iranian propaganda media described the churches as a "network of criminals" affiliated with "Zionist propaganda." Sunday's arrests are the latest in a wave of detentions in Shiraz. In the past few weeks, Iranian Intelligence Ministry agents in the city have arrested around 30 Christian converts and transferred them to detention centers. According to another report, "State security agents have been permanently stationed at two churches in Esfahan, Iran, in the latest effort by the Islamic regime to frighten people off Christianity. The agents constantly interfere in the activities of St. Luke's and St. Paul's, and harass those present. They order the pastors around and stop church elders from talking to Muslim seekers. They also try to frighten away visitors by warning them of dire consequences if they continue attending, and create tension among the members by spreading false rumours. The children of church members are also threatened and often forbidden from attending…. This campaign of harassment by the Islamic authorities is not confined to churches in Esfahan. Similar tactics have been deployed at the central Assemblies of God church in Tehran."
Kazakhstan: Two Protestant churches were raided, according to members, under the ruse of a criminal case launched 15 months ago. First, masked police raided Grace Church and seized computers, valuables and religious books they insisted were "extremist;" then police requested church members to give blood samples, to see if the church uses "hallucinogenic" substances for communion. Nine days later the New Life Church was raided, also under the pretext of the unrelated criminal case: "Members of both churches fear the authorities will use the case to prevent them gaining the mandatory re-registration," which critics say is being used to shut down Protestant churches.
Kenya: A grenade was thrown into the Sunday school building of St. Polycarp Anglican Church; it blew off the roof, killing one boy and injuring eight other children who were attending Sunday school; some required surgery. The attack came soon after a Somali member of the Islamic terrorist organization Al Shabab, who had earlier targeted four other churches, was sentenced to prison after he confessed to planning attacks on Parliament. According to the mother of one of the children, "We are in Eastleigh [a region with a large Somali population]. Many Christians, including myself, thought that something might happen. Every week we'd wonder 'What if it's this Sunday?' But we'd still go to church." Likewise, a parliament member said, "The life of an innocent child has been taken and others have been cruelly injured and traumatised in what should be the safest of places. The sanctity of life has been heartlessly breached in a sanctified place. Such acts seem to be designed to spark civil unrest and intimidate the Christian church. In the face of such an outrage we ask, with the prophet Habakkuk, 'O Lord, how long?' and let us trust that God in his mercy will bring justice and relief as we cry out to him."
Nigeria: After a renewed spate of church attacks, thousands of Christians continue to flee northern areas of Nigeria, which are predominantly Muslim, and where the jihadi organization Boko Haram holds sway. An Islamic suicide bomber rammed an SUV loaded with explosives into St. Rita Catholic Church holding Sunday Mass; he killed eight people and wounded more than 100. One "journalist saw the bodies of four worshippers lying on the floor of the church after the blast, surrounded by broken glass. The body of the suicide bomber had been blasted into nearby rubble." The church building, charred black, was devastated. Also, the Church of Brethren was raided by Islamic gunmen who killed at least two people and set the church ablaze. Many churches, fearing further attacks, are shutting down.
Pakistan: The Catholic Church of St. Francis, the oldest of the archdiocese of Karachi, was attacked by a Muslim mob of 600, who destroyed property but did not manage to break through the front door. According to a priest: "Fr. Victor had just finished celebrating a wedding, when he heard noises and shouting from the compound of the church. Immediately all the faithful, women and children were sent to the parish house. The radicals, shouting against the Christians, broke into the building and started devastating everything: cars, bikes, vases of flowers. They broke an aedicule and took the statue of the Madonna. They tried to force the door of the church, throwing stones at the church and destroying the windows." Police arrived an hour later, giving the terrorists plenty of time to wreak havoc. The Archbishop of Karachi lamented that "the church of San Francesco has always served the poor with a school and a medical clinic run by nuns. For nearly 80 years it carries out a humble service to humanity without any discrimination of caste, ethnicity or religion. Why these acts? Why are we not safe? "
Syria: Two churches were attacked. One bomb was detonated near the historical gate of Bab Touma ("Thomas' Doorway") which is largely populated by the nation's Christian minority. The bomb exploded as people were going to their churches for Sunday Mass; up to 10 people were killed. "Terrorists are doing this," said George, a Christian who, like many residents in Bab Touma, lives in fear of the rebel fighters trying to gain control of the capital. Another car bomb exploded in front of the only Syrian Orthodox Church in the town of Deir Ezzor, currently under opposition control. Five people near the church were killed. In September, the same church was desecrated and vandalized by armed gangs.
Tanzania: Muslim mobs burned several church buildings in various parts of the nation after an argument by two children concerning the supernatural powers of the Quran allegedly led a Christian boy to defile Islam's holy book: two church buildings were set ablaze, while the roof of another one was destroyed. On the island of Zanzibar, Muslim rioters also demolished a building belonging to the Evangelical Assemblies of God; and in Dar es Salaam, three more church buildings were set on fire and another destroyed. "We shall continue attacking the churches until they are no more in Tanzania" was echoed in several mosques in Tanzania," said one source.
Rape and Murder of Christians
Egypt: Ali Hussein, a Muslim gang leader—accompanied with his two ex-convict brothers—broke into the home of a Christian family on a Sunday morning, demanding that Hiyam Zaki, a mother of two children, to "come and live with him." Earlier, Hussein had demanded that the family either pay him one million Egyptian pounds, or forfeit the Christian woman to him. Because the family had refused his demands, the gang opened fire indiscriminately, killing one of her relatives and her father. Earlier, to terrorize the inhabitants of the village, the Muslim gang went to the stables and slaughtered all the animals. Hussein was killed under the hail of bullets, although it is not clear who shot him. A Muslim mob then surrounded the hospital demanding revenge for the "Christian killing of a Muslim man," even as they chanted that Hussein the gangster is "the beloved of the Prophet." Similarly, although the abduction and forced Islamization of Christian minor girls is common in Egypt, especially with the ascendancy of Muslim Brotherhood, the case of 14-year old Sarah, who was kidnapped on her way to school by the son of a Salafi leader, actually caused a stir. After filing a missing persons report with police, Sarah's father received an anonymous call telling him that he will never see his daughter again. Security is believed to know the girl's whereabouts but is not acting. After several human rights organizations called for the girl's release, "the Salafist Front issued a statement on October 28, warning human rights organizations, especially the National Council for Women, not to attempt to return Sarah to her family, as she has converted to Islam and married a Muslim man." Moreover, Salafis projected Islamic mores on the Christian family by saying that if Sarah returns to her family, she will be "killed" by her father," to which her father replied, "I want my child back in my arms, even if she became a Muslim."
Nigeria: Up to 30 Christian college students were shot or had their throats slit at a university in the Muslim-majority north. During the night, masked gunmen went door-to-door in the off-campus housing section of Federal Polytechnic College in the city of Moby: "the gunmen separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat." Among motives cited are reprisals against the fact that former Boko Haram Muslims, renouncing terrorism, converted to Christianity. Other former Boko Haram members have not converted to Christianity but have seen the "goodness of the Christian religion" and now warn Christians before there is an attack....continues on following link. - Muslim Persecution of Christians: October, 2012 by Raymond Ibrahim Gatestone Institute December 7, 2012
Muslim Brotherhood Metes Out Vigilante Justice
The darker side of the MB is now in evidence. Roaming thugs mete out beatings to those that they do not agree politically with. Meanwhile, Obama just sent the 'Brotherhood' 20 F-16's.
I find this most troubling on a number of levels. Not just because thuggery is not a road that is going to lead to genuine democracy, but that these actions harken back to the days of the Third Reich. Remember, Hitler also had his street thugs do the exact same things. They were called the 'Brown Shirts'.
Think about what just happened in Egypt. A barely democratically elected leader has just attempted to take on the powers of a dictator whose edicts were above the law and any review. Who else did this in the past?. Who else had is army of ready-made thugs ready to go out and smash the heads of their political opponents. Is there a connection between the little corporal from Austria with that goofy looking half-mustache and the Muslim Brotherhood of Morsi? It's as clear as the morning sun on a hot summer's day. Only the blind can't see it.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by a 22-year old Muslim named Hassan al-Banna, who admired Adolf Hitler's hatred of the Jews and persistently wrote to Hitler to express his admiration for Hitler and desire for collaboration with Hitler's Nazi Party.What you just read is the real history of the Muslim Brotherhood. If one wants to understand the events transpiring in Egypt and throughout the Middle East today and their path to power, it simply is not possible to do it without understanding and fully comprehending the roots of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is not a stretch to say that the Muslim Brotherhood, its poser and organization came directly from Adolf Hitter. Now many will try and hem and haw and say that that was a long time ago, things change, no one wants to go back to Hitlerism. Really? Then why may I ask is Their top spiritual leader Qarwadari, praising Hitler and lusting for nuclear weapons? You can read more about him here and his really whacked-out anti-semitic rants. If Hitler was a Muslim living today, this is exactly what he would sound like.
Haj Amin al Husseini and Adolf HitlerWhen Hitler rose to power, his Nazis supported al-Banna, who was a school teacher, to grow Muslim Brotherhood into its ally in the Middle East; by 1938, membership of the Muslim Brotherhood topped 200,000.
During World War II, members of the Muslim Brotherhood spied for Hitler's Nazis in the Middle East and fought as Hitler's Nazi troops in two specially formed Muslim Waffen-SS Handschar Divisions (handschar is the German for scimitar, the curved saber used by the Muslim troops of the Ottoman empire). - The Muslim Brotherhood and Hitler
What you find is a man whose whole life is dedicated to anti-semitism, just like Adolf Hitler. Let us not make a mistake here, Morsi listens to this guy. What are we really dealing with here? I touched on this last year (before the Muslim Brotherhood took power).
I am watching what is happening in the Middle East with great concern. Why? Check this link out and know that there is much more to this than meets the eye. Many well known Nazi's who were not prosecuted after the war and others who are bankrolling Nazi groups became Muslims. Here is one who converted and then moved to... where? Egypt. What kind of government do they have in Egypt? A Military dictatorship, has been since 1952. Where did Mohammad Atta come from? Egypt. He is the one who piloted the plane that crashed into the WTC, was rabidly anti-Semitic and was a student of Hitler's 'National Socialism'. Who was advising Egypt on financial and banking matters after the War? Hitler's chief Banker, that's who. Where did Hitlers favorite Commando go after the war? Egypt. Where did the key officer who stopped the coup against Hitler go and live? Egypt. Many Nazi's loved Egypt because the government loved those Nazi war criminals. Do you think maybe, just maybe there may be more to these uprisings than just 'spontaneous anger'?
Folks do not really understand just what they are dealing with, and the MSM makes every effort to edit out, prevaricate and misdirect their readers far, far away from the taproot of all of this terror, anti-semitism and destruction of freedoms. Remember the main job of 21st Century US propaganda is to tell and convince you that what you are seeing is not what you are seeing. Is there a reason why the so-called religions right helps to erect this system here in the US? Yes. Most of this is all coming from the same source. The 'Reich' that that got away, was never prosecuted and kept hundreds of billions of dollars in stolen wealth that was never recovered and members who came to America and were protected by the powerful people here in the US. The Nazi Nexus reached right into the power centers of American corporate and Financial power.
So all this street violence in Egypt is hardly surprising, it was fully predictable, given the pedigree of Morsi and the spiritual roots of the Muslim Brotherhood.
But the good news is that a great many Egyptians are not going to let him get away with it without a fight and they are out there protesting, every day.
The Arab Kurdish Front Could Strenghten Assad
Clashes between Kurdish militias and armed Syrian opposition groups in Aleppo starting at the end of October in Ras al-Ayn near the Turkish border have raised the specter of a possible Arab-Kurdish civil war in Syria. An Arab-Kurdish civil war would weaken the efforts of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and non-FSA affiliated groups to take over strategic areas in northern Syria such as oil-rich Hasakah province and Aleppo. Any fighting between the Syrian armed opposition and Kurdish militias trying to establish their authority in Kurdish-dominated areas could strengthen the resolve of the Assad-government. Moreover, the fighting could indicate that Turkey is facilitating the entry of Syrian armed rebels into Syria to prevent the influence of Kurdish groups affiliated to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
HSBC Mexican Branches Said To Be Traffickers Favorite
According to the article, over half a trillion dollars of transactions were not monitored by the bank. Looks to me like they made a point of not looking, knowing what they would find out. Most interesting are those transfers to Iran of Gold Bullion.
So why do we have innocent people in Gitmo and the guilty (of aiding terrorism) still out rolling round in Ferrari's and BMW's?
Because there is one standard for the rich Anglo-American elitists and another for everyone else.
It's satanic justice, the innocent rot in jail and the guilty go free.
Sorry, Your Jobs Were Shipped To China And Will Not Return
The funny thing is that the workers that are out there protesting these union bills actually voted for the politicians that are killing their jobs. Both parties are married to the one world economic system and the "free trade" agenda, and Barack Obama has been one of the worst offenders. He has been pushing for more "free trade agreements" throughout the past four years, and yet union workers continue to support him enthusiastically.

"70 Weeks Are Determined..."
The prophecy of the Seventy Weeks of Daniel is not really all that complicated. The time line has two parts. The first segment is a period of 7 plus 62 weeks or 69 "weeks" (or in the Hebrew, "sevens"), of years. Since this is a prophecy from the throne of God the time is dispensed to us in terms of of a perfect solar system and the holy/biblical years are made up of precisely 360.0000000 days. This is also where we get the 360 degrees in a circle with 12 segments each made up of 30 degrees. In holy time we also see that each 360 day year is made up of 12 months of 30 days. This is the holy, Biblical, prophetic year as issued from the throne of God in the mathematical perfection of time.
This is an exceedingly important issue for the correct interpretation of the 70 weeks prophecy. It was not until the coming of the evangelicals that this fact was re-discovered. The Hebrew saints of old as well as the wise men of Persia probably knew about these things. In many ways, especially in the realm of Bible prophecy the Church has not been fully reformed. It is certainly not reformed to Biblical standards. It seems that in many ways the Church is still emerging from the Dark Ages.
So the first segment of the 70 weeks are 69 weeks (or heptads).
These are 69 "sevens" of biblical years.
As we shall discuss in article 3, the 173,880 days began with the Edict of Artaxerxes given to Nehemiah very early in the month of Nisan in 445 B.C.. This was the edict that actually allowed the restoration of Jerusalem, its walls and its gates of politics and commerce to allow it to function as a self-sustaining city-state. This is a very important matter and as we shall discuss, the earlier decrees under Cyrus and under Ezra do not meet the criteria to initiate the 70 weeks prophecy.
So the 69 weeks were a period of 69 x 7 = 483 biblical years.
PALM SUNDAY IS A UNIQUE DAY MARKING THE POLITICAL EMERGENCE OF MESSIAH.
IT WAS THE ONLY DAY IN WHICH JESUS PRESENTED HIMSELF IN A
POLITICAL WAY AS "MESSIAH THE PRINCE". ONLY THIS DAY, PALM SUNDAY,
OF 32 A.D. MEETS THE CRITERION FOR THE TERMINUS OF THE 69 WEEKS.
Let us pause to take in the politics here. Because the scriptural record will show that Palm Sunday was the only day in which Jesus made any political statement or performed any political act whatsoever. Let us make no mistake here. On that particular day, (and only only on that day), Jesus presented Himself before His covenant people as their Messiah. But on this occasion He did not establish His Kingdom, the Millennial Kingdom of Messiah. That would come 2,000 odd years later. Palm Sunday would showcase Messiah's coming in His priestly role. Remember Messiah will rule and minister in the Order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4) Melchizedek was Priest of God Most High and King of Salem, (or King of Salem/Shalom). So Messiah rules and ministers in the two authorities we see in the Order of Melchizedek. He has a priestly role as our Sacrifice Lamb and also our High Priest.
He also has a future political or kingdom role role related to Jerusalem. Then there is His international global rule as Judge of the nations and future King of Kings. This latter office is the direct cause of the rebellious raging of nations. This balking by sinful men against the Throne of David and the coming rule of Messiah is the quintessential basis for all Anti-Semitism.
So two millennia ago holy history was made and Palm Sunday saw the terminus of the 69 weeks. "Messiah the prince" came in His priestly role. He came unto His own as the Suffering Servant. The prophet Isaiah wrote about this. (Isa.53) So did the psalmist King David. (Ps.22) As the Suffering Servant He came into Jerusalem, riding a donkey. It was Palm Sunday, Nisan 10, April 9th of 32 A.D.. The Pharisees should have known about this date. They did not do their homework, it seems. But then again, perhaps they did do the math and then didn't want to face the conclusion from their own calculations. Perhaps Nicodemus did.
What a spooky experience it must have been for the people who knew. The 69 weeks/173,880 days had just run their course. And there was their Messiah coming through the eastern Gate. He was riding on a donkey precisely as the prophets had declared. And He was right on time!
How about us today?
Will we do better than the Pharisees do you think?
Let us do our homework, seek God's face, and pray that we do. - Gavin Finley
This prophecy is one of the most misunderstood in the Bible. Often teachers use portions of this prophecy to impute acts that belong to Christ to the antichrist and vice-versa. One would do well to study this portion of scripture for there are still three and a half years (1290 days) of it that are talked about in detail in the book of Revelation (12:6, 12:14, 13:5 ). This is the second half of the final week of Daniel.How many of you know what event will set off the timeclock of this period in the prophetic future?What are people really saying when they say they are anti-Zionist? The pattern for antichrist is already being woven in todays news.Cops Fight Being Charged In Murder Of Homeless Man
I ask the same question that the above writer did. Will the Church fare better than the Pharisee's of Christ's day, who turned on God, murdered his prophets (John) and crucified their own Messiah because they did not know the time of their visitation? The Wise Men from the East knew what time it was, why did not God's own people?
Looking around at the state of the Church, the love of money, the open acceptance of Sodomy in so many and the willful rebellion against so many of God's commandments; I don't think the Church as a whole will fare much better. They will kill God's prophets and when Christ comes, they will be fighting in the battle of Armageddon... against Christ and with the beast.
Let those of us who are fully determined to enter into life eternal ensure we know the times and the seasons and what God expects of us.
Pretty sad isn't it? But the crimes against the homeless and the poor are myriad in this land of Ichabod.

The just reported foodstamp number for September was a doozy, with 607,544 new Americans becoming eligible for foodstamps, as a record 47.7 million Americans are now living in poverty at least according to the USDA. - Zero Hedge
This is not an economy that is on the mend. It is one that is still in very serious trouble. Neither political party has offered a serious solution to fix our economic problems. Neither wants to address the root of the matter, namely these job killing Free Trade Agreements and a business environment that can often strangle new businesses from ever coming into being by virtue of high tax rates (which can often be artfully dodged by larger corporations) anti-competitive actions by monopolies and cartels (in entrenched businesses like Medicine/ Energy-Oil/ Technology/Entertainment) which has targeted Congress and the Justice Department to ensure new investments by potential competitors never happens and that new startups are killed in the cradle.
America's business climate may not be as prohibitive in starting up a gas station or a liquor store, but they can be when you move in to markets where cartels and effective government sanctioned (by secret, classified arrangements) monopolies operate and use their power to destroy markets and undermine new business opportunities by killing startups. We are talking about some major efforts that often move into the criminal. I can think of a major search engine that was by far the best on the web and was beginning to cut into the market share of the other search giants. One day the owner had all of his money in his account drained and then had his child threatened if he did not close up shop. What did he do?
He closed up shop.
I can think of a major provider of Computer software that deliberately placed a root kit in a major computer manufactures products to kill the computer after a certain time period. Why? So people would be forced to upgrade their computer and software. The Justice Department was aware and did nothing. It was a legally enforced monopoly.
Why are there so few really good tech start ups? This is why, they will be sabotaged by the cartels... sometimes even with government complicity if they have a chance at succeeding in what the cartel's view is their market space.
America will never come out of this economic funk until it deals with this very serious problem inside her Business (corporate) community. This kind of corruption is the very kind of corruption that keeps so much of the third world in the third world. It is the kind of thing that will place America from the first world into the third. If you don't believe me, ask yourself how much money the US paid just in interest payments on its debt just this year and where the tax base is going to come from to pay it, Social Security, Medicare, the DOD, keep your streets paved, streets safe, pensions funded, schools open... This anti-competitive activity is poisonous, if this kind of thing were allowed to exist at the turn of the century, Henry Ford would have been murdered by the Buggy Whip manufacturers and Horse Corral owners and we would all still be getting about in horse drawn carriages and the idea of an automobile would be relegated to 'conspiracy' sites.
Look at places like Jordan. They have a booming technology sector, though it is little known. Why? What do they have that we don't? Why are they innovating and we are destroying? I will tell you. In the final phases of capitalism, destructive forces take hold and find that you can make more money by destroying a company than my building or saving it. Think of your vulture capitalists, your corporate raiders and your leaders who would rather tear down (demolish) what is good in order to turn a buck.
America has entered that final phase of Capitalism, where maintaining unpayable debt levels, destruction of someone else's wealth and job destruction are the new profit drivers. This is how the rich get rich. Its like a guy who lights fire to a building, gets legal immunity from prosecution for having done so, so that he can hire his wrecking crew to demolish the building in a no-bid contract. Until that changes, be assured America will start to look more and more like Bangledesh in more and more places as the 'crazy train' continues to jump the rails of fiscal sanity to destroy wealth, wherever it stands, grows and employs people.

Syrian Chemical Weapons - CRS
The Syrian case may be the first time the international community has faced a civil war in a state with a known stockpile of chemical weapons. This contingency raises two major policy concerns: whether the Asad regime would use chemical weapons; and, whether it could lose control over these weapons.
U.S. officials have expressed confidence that chemical weapons stocks in Syria are secured by the Asad regime, which dispatched elite Special Forces for that purpose. Due to the urgency of preventing access to these weapons by unauthorized groups including terrorists, the United States government has been preparing for scenarios to secure the weapons in the event of the Asad regime’s loss of control. However, this presents unique challenges. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on March 7, 2012, Secretary of Defense Panetta said, “It's 100 times worse than what we dealt with in Libya. And for that reason, that's why it's raised even greater concerns about our ability to address how we can secure those sites.” The Pentagon has estimated that it would take over 75,000 troops to neutralize the chemical weapons.

UK: Owning A Copy Of 'Inspire' Gets You A Year In Jail
The UK is looking more and more like some Hitlerian state, complete with the very kinds of censorship Hitlers regime approved of. That Magazine can be found just about anywhere on the net if you look. Who really writes Inspire? Hard to say, Iran, which hardly is the bastion of journalistic accuracy and neutrality says it is the CIA. Given the long time the agency has had dealing with, arming and funding AQ leaders dating back to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, one can only scratch ones head and say, hmmmm...
You can read about the magazine (without having 'accessed' it', for you UK residents for which it really is illegal to) at the Wikipedia site.
There is no need for a supposedly free society to fear even those materials that reasonable people find reprehensible. It just provides fodder for the enemies of such a 'free' state to correctly call them hypocrites when repressive nations use the exact same methods (censorship/imprisonment). Granted the circulation of materials that calls for the violent overthrow of governments should not be acceptable, yet using the very same standards, I can think of several US Senators and cabinet level official's who have done that on National TV over the past several years calling for the violent overthrow of this or that government for this or that reason which, as often is not, are not the real reason they want the regime overthrown.
Islamist propaganda is a very serious problem in our world as it recruits the disaffected and the downtrodden to a path of hate, ignorance and violence. The best remedy for that is large does of counter propaganda, not a jail cell for people who may not have even known what they were doing was illegal. Such an action only provides a propaganda tool for extremists to launch a new recruiting drive based on these unjust actions.The west has to learn not to keep taking the bait.
You will never win a fight against terrorism with a fascist swastika, but with real freedom, strong and just laws protecting free thought coupled with and large doses of truth and a society that is inclusive of your minorities, not hostile to them. This is a whole new battlefield and one that is won with weapons of the mind that change ideas and opinions. But as long as nations like the UK willingly put up a caricature of themselves that is deserving of repulsion (censorship) you can chalk one up for the enemies of freedom and the free flow of ideas.

News For 7 December 2012Syria's Christians: Caught In The Middle
The tension between the Assad regime and Assyrian nationalists inside and outside of Syria contrasts notably with the relations certain Christians, who identify themselves as Aramean nationalists, have maintained with the Syrian government. Aramean nationalists, who trace an identity to the Arameans of antiquity, primarily belong to the Syriac Orthodox Church- one of the main Christian denominations in Syria after the Antiochian Greek Orthodox Church and the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, whose adherents tend to see themselves as just Arabs. Like the Syriac Orthodox, they are concentrated in the western half of Syria. While exact numbers are difficult to ascertain, it is likely that there are more members of the Syriac Orthodox in Syria than there are members of the Assyrian Church of the East.High Food Prices Becoming The New Normal
“A new norm of high prices seems to be consolidating,” said Otaviano Canuto, World Bank Group’s Vice President for Poverty Reduction and Economic Management. “The world cannot afford to be complacent to this trend while 870 million people still live in hunger and millions of children die every year from preventable diseases caused by malnutrition.”Pesticide Cloud Over Buenos Aires
A fire caused a container full of Pesticides to explode. More here out of the UK.
Perhaps it is time to stop talking about the 'fiscal cliff' and start to look at what is becoming increasinly likely. That being that sequestration actually comes to pass. The DOD is now actively planning for it as are other major National Security and HHS agencies who will be effected. More and more, it looks like it is going to happen. One can hold up a ray of hope, but I am beginning to think that a deal is not going to happen. The two sides are not even talking. That is not good. Boehner appears to be moving to get rid of the most recalcitrant in the party but that may not be enough to come to a real deal. FYI, the CRS has a paper here on what will be hit and what won't. Another one that deals with Job losses can be found here.
Sequestration will be good for the budget but bad for those areas that are dependent on the defense industry. The DC area is going to be hit hard as are other communities that rely on Defense contractors for employment. But it is not just contractors, they are seriously looking at furlough's for a lot of Government employees as well. In total, some have estimates saying about 2 million jobs will be hit by Sequestration. They are probably not far off, though not all will come at once.
Most of the blame lies with the GOP. The President has signaled a willingness to talk entitlements, including Medicare and Social Security at considerable political risk. The GOP is being most recalcitrant about tax increases on the very wealthiest Americans, at the expense of just about everyone else. Not only is that selfish, it is a serious detriment to the nation's fiscal health. We cannot dig ourselves out of this hole without tax increases and budget cuts and the pain must be spread about, not just dumped onto working people.
Well, if Sequestration does hit, the good news is that I would look for the GOP to lose the House in 2014 and the Dems to bolster their control of the Senate. You put 2 million folks out of work and drive down housing prices (with a glut of properties of people who lost jobs) and you are asking for a beating at the polls. I am not a Democrat (never have been) and find many of their polices reprehensible. But a party like the GOP who has no policy, does not deserve to control the house or even have any seats in it. They have put the nation's interest behind the interests of a very small portion of Americans.
I am not a hater of the GOP or the Democrats though both have a lot of very serious moral and spiritual issues. My point is a simpler one. The GOP needs a platform that stands for more than 'no'. It needs a vision that goes beyond making the rich, richer and the poor, poorer. It needs to get past these idiotic rhetorical arguments and come up with some solid proposals that are really going to work to fix our fiscal and jobs mess. Right now they are devoid of ideas and their only response to this crisis is the constant and droning response of 'no'; ''We don't care if the nation goes down the toilet, you will never raise taxes on the rich."
That is not a message that is going to resonate with voters except to remove those who hold those views. A guy standing in line for an unemployment check is going to get angrier and angrier as the weeks pass and there is no work in sight and the only thing he hears out of Boehner's mouth is 'no tax increases on the wealthy', and figures out that it was those words that put him out of work. That is not an issue they are going to forget about in 2014. I can guarantee you...
They will remember.
For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
The first part of this is a difficult passage but one that probably will make more sense if one reads 1 Peter 3:18ff.
News For 5 December 2012A Note On Vaccines
For the information of my readers I want you to know I understand what is in a vaccine and those elements that have been shown to cause health damage when taken in high dosages. So yes, I know what is in a vaccine and I knew that when I said I am not against Vaccine's folks would not like it and scratch their heads in confusion. I don't take them anymore and yes there is a Nazi agenda here. One need only look at which companies are making them and what happened to the Massive Nazi/Concentration Camp Running/ Poison gas making/Private Corporation with High level US personages serving on the board of directors to understand what you are dealing with here. No doubt about it. So while I appreciate the links some of you have sent me, I have looked at this issue a very long time. You will even find some audio files on this site on it from 10 years back by guys who were really the pioneers of this kind of research (exposing Vaccines) like Dr. Horowitz
Yes the OT does say the life is in the blood. But go back to Acts and read the very few admonitions that Paul gave to Christians. That being to abstain from blood. There is no mention of vaccines.
I am not going to add to God's commandments and I am not going to take away from them. This is a kind of gray area for NT believers. I personally would not recommend vaccines today in most instances (personal opinion), but I am not prepared to say it is sin. I would need some solid biblical proof (NT) and it just isn't there.
I think what you don't know is that this nation has been attacked using bioweapons in the past and will certainly be attacked in the future and is being attacked right now (WEPR readers know what I am talking about). These new weapons can be very deadly. Should not the nation take steps to prepare itself for such an eventuality or would 3-5 million deaths be more in keeping with your desires?
Not everything in this realm is diabolical and evil, though frankly much of it is. Dear readers, I have been in this fight a very long time and not to put too fine a point on it, 'I know the deal'. I have also learned the hard way that I do not have all the answers and that before I run around saying all vaccines are evil and kill people, I need to have solid scientific AND biblical proof that such is the case. I personally have taken scores of vaccines while in the Military and am still alive and in pretty good health. So have millions of other men and women. So this bit of empirical evidence leads me to conclude that they are not all bad or designed to kill the recipient. That does not mean to s ay that they have not and will not be horribly abused to kill, create diseases in certain socio-ethnic segments of the population or induce infertility in the same. I think they have been and will be as the global population increases.
But think about this one: If tomorrow, God forbid your area should be hit by a lethal nerve agent attack and the only antidote available is an injection of atropine and if you don't take it like right away, you are going to die... horribly. What are you going to do? Take the atropine or start jerking on the ground, foaming the mouth and messing yourself while in the throes of death?
Now if I said all vaccines are evil and those who take the are going to hell, I would be responsible before God for those who took me at my word, without solid biblical proof.
Some folks have reason to not take them ever. If you are Black and live in a predominantly Black community (or Native American and lets not forget the Tuskegee experiments and others) and a vaccine truck rolls up and offers you a free one, I personally would run from it like there is no tomorrow. If I were the son or daughter of a White, very wealthy politically connected elitist in a very exclusive private school and they offered it to me, I would be more inclined to take it. In our world what is good for the goose, is not necessarily good for the gander.
Let the reader be wise here and not go off the deep end just because they read a conspiracy site or two.
Dear readers, just because you read a few conspiracy sites, don't think you have everything all figured out. Keep on open mind that is FIRMLY grounded on the word of God. Ask God for wisdom in these affairs. He will give it to you.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
I want to thank a 'Dr.' reader for pointing out this site that talks about some of the links between Vaccines and Autism. He has papers here that are peer reviewed and are not just recycled 'conspiracy' stuff.

I can only say this... I keep the high tech crap out of my house. Smartphones, SmartTV's, Smart Cable Boxes. Their primary purpose is not to allow you to entertain yourself, but to let corporations and big brother spy on you.

Fiscal Cliff: Boehner Under Fire From Far Right Over 'Purge'
Clearly Boehner is in the mood to compromise and those elements in the party (that cost them the election) don't want that. The nation needs a dose of sanity, not rhetoric. Those on the far right are just not interested in compromise. They want to spout rhetoric to win points with a small and ever shrinking political constituency. A deal has to be done. Those who think otherwise or that we can just kick the can down the road are in for a sad awakening when new investment in the US stalls or moves away because of the fiscal uncertainty and the 'quantitative printing' going on to keep government offices open. This is one thing that is holding back any real recovery. We are in a crisis and in Washington we have the same old inertia. Investors and business leaders are not going to pour money into new projects until they know which way the wind is blowing in Washington. And I don't think it will be long before those already invested start to pull up stakes and establish themselves elsewhere if the two sides cannot meet and find some common ground and make significant (in real dollar terms) progress.Young, Educated And Jobless In France

News For 4 December 2012Congress Holds Hearings On Autism
1 in 88 kids have autism. What is causing it? While studies funded by or heavily influenced by Big Pharma say there is no link, the amount of money spent in Vaccines privately and by governments shows the very high stakes in continuing large government contracts to keep vaccines in place. In addition, those studies that claim there is no link need to be held with at least some suspicion. There are often serious conflicts of interests in far too many 'scientific' studies these days. Like getting your funding to do a study from a major vaccine producer.
You will find many a rant on the net against those who ask questions about a link between Autism and Vaccines. Find out who pays their advertising and who writes their checks before you believe them. Journalists and editors are often bribed (real bribes) to run stories and slant them in the interest of those who pay them. It is a very common practice today. Many of todays top journalists take bribes to lie to you or have secret connections to what I will call the 'secret world' where governments, corporations, crime and propaganda meet.
Keep that in mind as you read those who talk about 'absolute fact' when they don't even bother to cite their sources.
I am not anti-Vaccine. I think they have done a lot of good in the past for diseases like Polio. But I would be dishonest if I told you that scientific research these days is driven, not by the search for cures but by economics and profit and agenda's that are not publicly stated. People do evil things when money is involved and shedding more light on this topic is not something entrenched interests want. I am no fan of Dan Burton (on the Congressional Committee) but it is high time someone started asking real pointed question and stopped trusting every guy in a smock with his hand out for a government contract to fund their research or buy their vaccines at very significant taxpayer expense.
Don't turn off YOUR brain just because a big Newspaper or Blog blasts those who ask questions. I do not know if there is a link between Autism and Vaccines. But it is just too strange that some go off the deep end with all the name calling and attacks because somebody asks a question.
More info can be found here. Conspiracy Theory? The Death camps at Auschwitz were a conspiracy theory as well. That is until the war ended and folks got a look at what was going on.
Then conspiracy theory became conspiracy fact. There are facts that people are psychologically capable of digesting and facts that they are not. That large corporations would deliberately allow this to continue for billions of dollars is not something most people are psychologically capable of internalizing. Thus, name calling is the psychological defense mechanism they employ. Something in their minds won't let them believe there are people who put profit over life.
Syria Warned On Chemical Weapons
Looks like they are moving them into position like they may be getting ready to use them. EuroNews has a good video here.
This is an ominous development now that the rebels are in Damascus and have besieged sections of it. Meanwhile, the humanitarian crisis grows. The regime is probably in a panic and it is, as I have said many times in the past, that Syria will indeed use those weapons when there are no other options. I just don't think anyone really thought that the regime would really begin to make these moves. In my mind, they were inevitable. I think the only hope diplomatically to get Assad to stop will be to appeal to the Russians, on whom the Assad regime is dependent on for arms and supplies.
Putin very much is working to be a major player in the region and has asserted Russia on more than one occasion into ME politics. But not even he would cherish the idea of one of their client states using chemical weapons. The diplomatic fallout would be too great.
Besides such an appeal to Putin, what are our other options? They are few and mostly unpalatable. This is no little threat as Syria has tons of Chemical munitions, many of which are very deadly, such as nerve agents and blister agents. These agents are as lethal as they are indiscriminate. A map of where these agents are located can be found here. For those of you who do not know nerve agents work on the central nervous system and break down the transmission of impulses between the brain and the body and cause death. Blister agents are also deadly when inhaled. Mustard gas is an example of a blister agent.
Mustard attacks all the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. After a latent period of 4 to 6 hours, it irritates and congests the mucous membranes of the nasal cavity and the throat, as well as the trachea and large bronchi. Symptoms start with burning pain in the throat and hoarseness of the voice. A dry cough gives way to copious expectoration. Airway secretions and fragments of necrotic epitheliums may obstruct the lungs. The damaged lower airways become infected easily, predisposing to pneumonia after approximately 48 hours. If the inhaled dose has been sufficiently high the victim dies in a few days, either from pulmonary oedema or mechanical asphyxia due to fragments of necrotic tissue obstructing the trachea or bronchi, or from superimposed bacterial infection, facilitated by an impaired immune response. - Global Security.org
More can be found here.
So don't think that the name blister agent only causes a minor annoyance. If you survive an attack, you will probably die in a few years of cancer.
Chemical weapons being released into the general population or fired at Turkey is a most serious threat. One just below the release of a Nuclear weapon.
What are the options?
This is something that the DOD has been working on for sometime as CNN has reported.
There are not many options on the table. Ground troops? Won't work and they may become targeted by these weapons. Though apparently the option is on the table. Airstrikes? This seems like the most likely option but there are some very serious problems with this. If you blow up a Chemical weapons dump with an airstrike how much of those agents will be released into the air and smoke effecting the outlying areas? Where will the wind take it? How long will the deadly plumes effect the outlaying areas? More importantly, at what temperatures do these agents become inert? 200 Degrees, 500 degrees, 1000 degrees? If it takes higher temperatures to destroy them, then conventional munitions may not be effective in destroying the long term deadly fallout from such an air strike. Indeed, an airstrike may indeed be worse than an actual chemical attack. So what options are available? I can only think of one kind of weapon that when detonated reaches a high enough temperature to assure the destruction of a Chemical weapons dump and the use of such weapons would bring about a swift and very negative reaction from the rest of the world.
Aren't you glad you're not the President?
War On Horizon In South China Sea?
Obama Working To Give Radio Monopolies To American Cities
The Federal Communications Commision is now considering a measure that will remove the few remaining limits on how many radio and TV stations and newspapers giant media companies are allowed to operate in a single market. Apparently, President Obama believes that we need even fewer wealthy corporations to control what we see, hear, and are allowed to broadcast to each other.
Banks Are Where The Money Is In The Drug War
Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Wachovia (acquired by Wells Fargo in 2009), HSBC Holdings, ING Bank, Standard Chartered, American Express Bank International, and not a few others, have a common bond beyond ranking among the largest banks in the world.
All have been accused within the past five years (and several this year) of failing to comply with US anti-money laundering laws — thereby enabling, collectively, hundreds of billions of dollars worth of suspicious transactions to move through the banking system absent adequate monitoring or oversight.
Yet not one these banks, nor any of their top executives, has been hit with criminal sanctions.
The war on drugs is a sham. It has been used as a tool to destroy racial minorities with laws that specifically target them while leaving the elitists rich and un-prosecuted. It is part of what I will call a long term race war waged inside America by her elites (read this it is short and very good) This is not a new phenomenon. The same thing was done against China in the opium wars. That too was a race war, against the Chinese.
Never forget the important fact that in Afghanistan, Opium cultivation was almost eradicated, that is until the US showed up and suddenly, it skyrocketed. Keep in mind that the US invaded Afghanistan in late 2001.
From Public IntelligenceUnclassified Breakdown Of Recent Cyberattacks
These bankers who lauder the money and never do time? Think about it, we passed all of those laws in the patriot act to deal with just this kind of crime and no one has invoked those laws against the rich bankers, the vast majority of whom are not Black or Latino.
It seems strange to me that a Black President and a Black Attorney General can't get up the moxy to put these guys in jail.
Aids: Sex Sin Decimates Black Male Population
The statistics sound like a broken record. Each year the Centers for Disease Control release stunning numbers with dire warnings about the dangers and health risks for homosexual men, but they seem fall on deaf ears. Now a shocking report released by the Black AIDS Institute says that 1 in 2 black homosexual men are infected with HIV. Thats 50% of all self identified black gay males! - GCMWatch
Adultery (including unholy divorces), homosexuality, fornication. These are things that God condemns and makes it plain we Christians are not to be involved in. Yet Black America, having turned its back on God is reaping what it has sown. A bitter harvest of sickness, death and a 'back of the line' economic condition that shows up in every major economic statistic in the nation; from food stamps, unemployment, income inequality and housing. This coupled with a spiritual blindness that will not let them see just how dysfunctional the whole Black community has become. The cowardice and fear of becoming socially unacceptable with their peers won't allow them to open their eyes and see their own self destructiveness is not a result of 'whitey' but of their own socially reinforced ignorance, fear and stubborn love of sin.
God wants to heal, but for those who don't want God's healing, he will send a curse.
God loves gay people as he loves all men. But sin is sin and for it there is punishment.

_______GM Insects: Under Whose Control
News For 3 December 2012
Plans to commercialise genetically modified (GM) insects, including agricultural pests, would result in many millions of GM insects being released in fields of crops, including olives, tomatoes, citrus fruits, cabbages and cotton. Many millions of GM mosquitoes have already been released in experiments intended to reduce transmission of the tropical disease dengue fever. In future, any insect species, including beneficial insects such as bees, might be genetically modified. - Genewatch UK/Testbiotech/Swiss Aid/ Coporate Europe Observatory/Bern Declaration
When I read papers like this and I see the leaps made in bio-technology these days I no longer think that the Vision of John the revelatory could possibly be some kind of symbolic/allegorical representation of future events. He saw events just as they are going to happen.
And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.Such things may have seemed 'over the top' back then and throughout the middle ages. Today, we know that mankind has or will soon have the ability to make beings just like this.
Is Prophecy Being Fulfilled In Egypt?
Yes it is. This is an interesting read. Take the time to read it. The hour is late, the end time players are taking the stage. How can we know how late it is? because much of the Church is asleep, apostate or in rebellion. Just like Paul said it would be in the last days. The great falling away is well underway.Wells Fargo Accused Of Mistaken Foreclosure
While most of the Chapter in Daniel was fulfilled long, long ago, verses 40ff are for the times of the end. The spiritual battle lines are already being drawn and are almost complete. Look at what is happening in Israel. The UN just recognized the Palestinians. A significant, if not earth shattering event. Eventually there will be more parting of the land of Israel.
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
It will be done almost certainly as part of a 'two-state solution' which is in reality is a three state solution as the Palestinians already have a UN recognized homeland in Jordan. They want more and the devil wants to give them more and it is his job to make sure that whatever is given to them comes from the tiny strip of land that is modern day Israel.
This is going to be what we will see diplomatically in the years ahead. A steady flow of hate and propaganda that blows out of proportion every wrong Israel does and simply does not report the evils that the Palestinians do. The goal? Remove Israel's legitimacy to exist and begin to chip away at her borders and make her indefensible. The world, I hate to tell you will sound more and more like Ahamdinejad's mentally unbalanced rants as the years roll on. At least part of the reason for this is so that when the Assyrian arrives, he can easily conquer her. I talk about who this man is and what he is going to do in the end times in this piece (page 38ff). Some of these issues just take a lot more time and space than just a blog post will allow, which is why I do the longer pieces (PESR/WEPR).
This is one of the reasons I have talked so much about the events in Iraq, Iran Syria and will be talking much more about Turkey. There is a new system coming into being. The wars and unrest we are witnessing today are just the birth pangs of a new Islamic system of Governance that is coming into being and will sweep the region. It is the system of the false prophet talked at length on this site many times. For those of you who may be a little new to the site, click on the orange XML logo in the top left hand column and you will see quite a few of my older pieces on current events and Bible prophecy on this and related subjects.
Brothers, the hour is very late and the Lord has made it plain to me that I must tell all of you that the Lord is indeed coming soon. I am here to bear witness that Jesus Christ is coming soon to receive his saints into glory and to judge the world for its abundant and ever growing wickedness. We who know our God and obey him know the signs that will precede his coming. You, who are not asleep or in apostasy, but are awake and watchful know that that day will come upon the whole world as a snare.
So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Let us not give heed to the false prophets of satan who preach a new age of peace that will be brought in with a suicide bomber, a killer drone, a bribe and a successful blackmail attempt against a person placed in a position of trust. But rather let us trust in God's more sure word of prophecy, which even to this day is being fulfilled right before our eyes.
Watch, be ready for the Lord comes and his reward is with him to give everyman according to his works.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.We as Christians do indeed live by faith, but we will not be judged by faith, but by our works.
Let every TRUE believer take heed to this.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

What has Obama's mortgage settlement that gave immunity to the Banks done about this kind of thing?
Let the reader check this one out and keep a very open mind. I cannot confirm the authors conclusion about a 'coup attempt' but I can say that the rot in our military is far, far deeper than you are ever going to hear in American propaganda organs (Newspapers/Cable News). And yes, it is so bad that such a scenario is not totally out of the realm of possibility and will become a virtual certainty if the rot in the Military is not eviscerated.Irritating A Colonel May Mean 7 Years In Jail
I think a far more likely scenario is different. First off, this President has not been well served by his military. He has not received good advice from them and its leaders no longer really command the respect of their underlings. They know how to maneuver the politics in Washington and get young admirers (often subordinates) into bed but they cannot win wars. More and more, discipline is breaking down in more ways than one. We have whole naval combat ships that have turned into literal whorehouses and brothels with commanders taking a cut in the proceeds by all too willing men and women in uniform who sell their bodies to other sailors. They behave not unlike a 'pimp' and rumors (I want to stress that... rumors) of rogue military units have not gone away.
The Petreaus affair? He was warned about the lady he was sleeping with time and again. Warned and rather than listening, he sneered at those who warned him calling them an 'a--hole'. Petraus was warned that what just happened was going to happen. Again, how can someone lacking in such basic common sense rise to head the CIA? Well, all I can say is that place is pretty screwed up. What they need is an outsider who knows how to weild the administrative axe, a person who has no loyalty to anyone inside the agency and is willing to make it perhaps a little less effective over the next 4 years to get the criminals and thieves out of there and those who put their own careers and petty little squabbles above the national security.. I want to stress this, the CIA needs to be reformed and new leadership who knows how to lop off (administrative) heads is exactly what is needed. Who could do that? Not another general and not another CIA insider. I never liked her but I know she is a no non-sense administrator. Hillary Clinton would clean that place out. She would need a special prosecutor specially assigned with broad powers to her just for her term to deal with some of the shenanigans going on over there and start putting the few bad actors in jail.
But Petreaus was typical of a long line of underacheivers who rose to top rank by virtue of their inability to think outside of the box. In Washington, this is viewed as a virtue - spout the party line, turn off your brain, don't rock the boat and do as little as possible. This is a guy who in the midsts of a serious crisis, where every second counts and where lives were at stake is obsessing over literally over the colors of the diagrams on a map! And he was running the CIA!!! How can a man like that rise to such a high rank and position? Because those around the President and in whom he has placed too much trust 'torpedoed' far more competent generals, guys like this wind up in decision making positions. McChrystal was one such officer railroaded by insiders at the White House. You know, he was the guy who was accused of saying negative things about Obama? Well, he never said them. It was a classic set up to get rid of (complete with high tech wizardry) the competent to enthrone the incompetent. I know Special Op folks who served with McChrystal. They will tell you that he was one of the finest officers this nation had at that rank at this particular time in US history and these folks I am talking of have worked with and served under more than a few of them. America is facing a crisis of leadership. We just don't have them today. Men who are principled and stick by them, they are thrown over the side in favor of a nitwit with a hard-on. This is especially true of the military. Why do you think we are getting our backsides kicked in every war we fight? Our leaders are simply incompetent and people die when the leaders are AWOL or in the sack with some 18 year old private.
A purge of our top military/national security leaders is in order. We need to root out these generals who use the stars on their shoulders as an aphrodisiac on their attractive subordinates (which is very common these days) Some of these guys, if they cannot seduce them, they rape them. Our military? It is a gravy train. We don't fight wars to win them or even for some policy goal. We fight them to shift trillions of dollars to beltway bandits who sometimes do the work for which they were hired and sometimes don't. That is what the DOD is really all about. How much did Vietnam cost us? Did we win? Iraq II? How much did it cost? How much of that money was stolen? Afghanistan? Look, most of you cannot fathom corruption at that level and men who would send off young men to die for a buck, but that is what our military is becoming. Look at the number of GI's coming home maimed, disabled or with serious mental problems. We are talking very high numbers. I don't need to tell you about the epidemic of veteran suicides. Military members are the cannon fodder of a vast military industrial complex that costs the nation about a trillion dollars a year, WHEN you count up all the supplementals and off budget chicanery.
The President needs to remove these officers and do whatever he can to deny the worst offenders their pensions AND clearances as well as blackball them from getting jobs with defense contractors. That would send a message to other general officers that there is a real cost to dereliction of duty. It may not be the 'big house', but rather, it's called the poor house.
I say use all of your power to do that. There are fewer more important National Security issues facing the nation than our rotting military. Mr. President, you came down pretty hard on that Army Private accused of the Wikileaks affair and saw fit to undermine the privacy and constitutional protections of 280 million Americans in your spying bills. Why not do the same with General officers who are in a position to and have actually done far, far more damage than those cables the vast majority of which are horribly over classified.

Massive Sink Holes Around New Madrid Faultlines

I really want to start it up again but found that putting up relevant stories on the issue here was the best solution.Pacific Island Nation Prepares For Total Evacuation
But as far as these sinkholes are concerned, let me add this little note that was not dealt with in depth in this very fine article that no one wants to talk about. That is the issue of Fracking. It stands to reason that when you pull out large amounts of Oil our of the ground that a large amount of space is going to be left where there was once something there holding up the ground.
I am no geologist, but I don't think I need a PHd to figure out that Fracking may indeed be the cause of some of these sinkholes.
What is the Government going to do about it? I don't know. The President is working hard to make the US energy independent. The US is well on the way to it. Fracking has done a lot to make that happen. But the environmental damage over the long term may be a very heavy cost. So I do not look to see Fracking ending anytime soon. The same could be said about another controversial issue that has enormous environmental concerns and that is Nuclear Power.
The reason? Rising Water lines from rising oceans.
Germany May Sell Tanks To Saudi Arabia
Tanks which will certainly be used to quell poplar dissent in the worlds most repressive nation.
Since March 2011 the Saudi Arabian authorities have launched a new wave of repression in the name of security. They have cracked down on demonstrators protesting over human rights violations in the context of calls for reform at home and the uprisings and mass protests in the region. At the same time, they are in the process of creating a new anti-terror law which threatens to exacerbate an already dire situation for freedom of expression, in which any real or perceived dissent is almost instantly suppressed. It would also legalize a number of abusive practices including arbitrary detention, thus consolidating draconian and abusive counter-terrorism measures imposed since 2001 against the backdrop of an extremely weak institutional framework for the protection of human rights. - Amnesty International

This is more and more going to be a question young folks are going to need to ask themselves. Do I want to be saddled with 50-100 dollars in debt that can never be extinguished not even by bankruptcy and perhaps never even get a decent job to pay it back, or do I want to mimic guys who never got one, like Michal Dell, Bill Gates, the guys who founded Paypal, Facebook or Twitter who never got a degree.
College just prepares you to work for someone else and today more often than not, it doesn't even do that very well. The only thing it does with any consistency is teach you how to pay back debts.

The United States will need to make a greater effort to address these concerns as well as China’s growing offensive strategic forces, which are complicating U.S. relations with Russia and other countries. While Chinese analysts share Russian anxieties about U.S. strategic defenses, concerns about China are one reason why Russian policymakers resist making further reductions in their nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, members of Congress also point to China’s growing nuclear weapons potential as a reason why Washington cannot cut its nuclear forces further. Other Asian countries are responding to China’s military buildup, which is partly a reaction to the rebalancing of U.S. military forces toward Asia, by increasing their own military spending .
Fears That Egypt Is On The Way To Islamic Theocracy
Egypt’s constituent assembly is in crisis: Several of its non-Islamist members have withdrawn in protest over what they say are attempts by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists to establish an Islamist state.
Arafats Body Exhumed
They want to discover if he was poisoned. I will tell you what no one wants you to know. Arafat was poisoned. His murder was not sanctioned by the Israeli's. He was a known quantity. As bad as he was, Israel knew what followed him would be worse. Arafat's death was the result of a pitched political battle between Palestinian factions. One of the ways Arafat was able to stay alive and wield power was that he was the only one who knew where all of the money was. When he died, there was panic and a desperate search for that money. They found most of it...eventually, but a few billions are still missing. Keep in mind that Arafat was dead for weeks before they officially announced it. They had his corpse laying up in the Hospital while everyone was looking for the money and the battle for power was underway.Key Catholic Theologian Fights For Life After Accident

Fed's Fisher Says Limits Could Be Placed on Quantitative Easing
While the Fed strives to be apolitical it appears to this author that the Fed is not uninvolved in the current fiscal cliff, fiscal responsibility negotiations. The fed has a big stick in its arsenal. If the two sides don't come up with some kind of agreement that seriously (as opposed to spuriously) addresses our deficit, the Fed could just put the breaks on QE making our fiscal troubles more acute. The only way to get the politicians to move forward is to light a fire under them.
The sticks, coal and lighter fluid have been prepared to do just that.
“There is no such thing as QE infinity, QE infinity gets you into trouble.” - Federal Reserve Governor Fisher
Clearly as the article states, the Fed is keenly aware of the "Weimar Syndrome" that goes with QE. While Pundits are out there telling you that QE is not inflationary, the fact is it can be and will be if not watched most carefully. The real issue is that once inflation sets in, it is very difficult to get a handle on without a lot of economic pain and destruction. Hopefully the Fed is smart enough to put the brakes on it before it gets to that point.

Jamie Fox Calls Obama "Lord And Savior"
When Foxx made the stunning statement of blasphemy attributing messiah status to Obama the crowd erupted in applause. Foxx then demanded they stand and acknowledge his declaration. And the people obliged. The deification of Obama began almost immediately after his ascension onto the national stage. This provided him a carte blanche opportunity to inject his poisonous religious ideology straight into the veins of the nation. - Gay Christian Watch

_______There Is A Generation...
What does it mean to live in our times, having been touched by God's spirit and understanding what God requires of us? It means that we are going to have a hard time fitting in with the current generation. This is the way it should be, since we are of a very different heritage. The scriptures talk about times like ours and what kinds of people will inhabit the earth just before Christ returns. We will see a wicked and perverse generation rise up and their evil will become the new norm. In other words, if you are not twisted and wicked like they are, you are viewed as an outsider, an anachronism, a throwback.
There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother. There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness. There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
This is indeed an accursed Generation described above. What better verse to describe the generation of Americans that has vomited forth onto its once pristine lands. Now I am not here to say all Americans are like that, there are many quite notable exceptions and often times, perhaps more often than not, the really good folks make no Christian profession. They run homless shelters, help the mentally disabled, assist the handicapped and have decided to give in this life rather than receive. Yet, I look at the number of abortions in America, the coldness so many have in this nation to the poor and the needy and the arrogance of the people and the nation as a whole. It pains me to see these things. But what is worse I think is that most Americans do not see themselves that way. They will run to the abortion clinic, have their baby literally sliced into pieces and call themselves 'good'.
"There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness."
I see the constant drone of war in America, who in her supreme arrogance wants to blow up parts of the planet who don't agree with their models of governance. Everywhere we turn America has dropped bombs, engaged in Special Operations against the poor, or even to start wars so that one side can blame another for something that the US did in secret, hoping for war. Even today its major corporations are behind throwing people off of their lands in far off places. But America is not the only one. We sing 'God bless America' and then fall down before satan and do all that he asks. Jesus may be on many of our lips, but most of America's hands are dedicated to the devils work.
Then we can see that in America how the poor are vilified and mocked. The wickedness against the poor is very great in this nation. I am not just talking about our war against 'poverty' in Afghanistan and Yemen, where we have taken to killing just about anyone who is dirt poor who dares to take up arms to end the constant cycle of violence against the poor of their nations and the corruption that is often overlooked if not encouraged by America. No I don't need to go very far at all to see how the Rich and Powerful nation of America treats poor people. America's cruelty against homeless people is well documented, right here against fellow Americans.
In October of 2004, three Milwaukee teens murdered a homeless man at his forest campsite. The teens hit 49-year-old Rex Baum, with rocks, a flashlight, and a pipe, before smearing feces on his face and covering his body with leaves and plastic. According to the criminal report, one of the boys “hit the victim one last time to see if he would make a sound like in Grand Theft Auto,” and then cut him several times with a knife to make sure he was dead.
In August, Curtis Gordon Adams, 33, beat and stabbed a disabled homeless man to death, and then licked the blood from his fingers on a Denver sidewalk.
In June, two New York City teens, kicked,
punched, and finally bludgeoned 51-year-old William Pearson to death in
a churchyard. Pearson crawled to the church steps before finally dying
of a fractured skull. “His head was a bloody mess,” one police officer
Sadly, these gruesome accounts are few of many, which demonstrate the hate / violence faced by people experiencing homelessness each year. The following report documents 105 hate crimes and violent acts that occurred in 2004, collected from newspapers and reports across the country. The narratives bring to light the discrimination and senseless violence faced daily by so many of our country’s homeless citizens. - National Coalition For The Homeless
Yes, dear readers, 'there is a generation' and this, I hate to tell you is it. A generation that is pure in their own eyes but that is not washed from its filthiness. A generation whose teeth are like knives and whose teeth are as swords to devour the poor man from off of the earth. Here you cannot blame the Federal government, but ordinary Americans along with a number of local elected officials, who go out of their way to turn the other way when the Homeless are mistreated or serious crimes are committed against them. The wickedness goes right into the police departments. You can see a video of Cops dismantling (and deliberately destroying the precious little property they have) of homeless people here.
Yet the refrain you hear and the image of America (a pivotal part of the best system, let the reader understand) is one of a good nation, one that wears the 'white hat'. Yet the realities are far different. The real America is made up of Americans and any intelligent (foreign) person who has a 10 minute conversation with most Americans comes away with serious questions about how such base ignorance and cruelty could possibly reside within one human being all at the same time. As Hugo Chavez before the UN said, 'you can smell the sulfur'. Because when it all boils down to it, many Americans just don't care about anything but their own bank account. They will cheat any soul, lie and tell themselves any lie (self deceit) to get more money. They like to make noble noises, but in many lurks the spirit of larceny, greed and a hardness to the less fortunate. America has a epidemic. A serious one that cannot be cured by vaccines or pills.
Americans Growing Epidemic Of Violence
Over the past twelve years (1999-2010), advocates and homeless shelter workers from around the country have seen an alarming,nationwide sustained increase in reports of homeless men, women and even children being killed,beaten, and harassed. In response to these concerns, the National Coalition for the Homeless has produced twelve reports documenting these acts, the newest report entitled Hate Crimes against the Homeless: Violence Hidden in Plain View. Our reports are collected from a variety of sources including media and advocacy reports. However, it is important to mention the numbers of crimes collected in our reports are estimated to be a gross under-representation of the actual number of incidents due to lack of reporting to police, victims. - Hate Crime Organizing Manual National Coalition for the Homeless

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Brothers are not these terrible trends more and more in evidence? We have seen many, if not most of these traits explode on the the American social scene over the past few decades. Indeed, these are perilous times. Strange things are happening in our world with governments being toppled, strange weather changes, whole ecosystems being effected negatively by man's actions, wars and rumors of wars and very strange and terrible new weapons that have been fielded and used on people that the world has never been told about. Perilous seems to describe so much of what is happening today. Paul's words to Timothy here shows the declining character of mankind. It is a litany of his moral and spiritual de-evolution, if you will. What is sadder still is that Paul's words seem to be more directed to the Church than to the world outside. Does this not describe what is happening in many Churches across the nation? Having been seduced by the gifts of mammon granted to faithful servants of the Harlot, God's doctrine gets jettisoned and another gospel takes its place. Let me ask those of you who are stuck in these kinds of Churches a serious question. When was the last time your pastor talked intelligently and biblically about Christ's Return? When was the last time he really spent some time elucidating key events and prophecies that we as Christians are commanded (not requested) to watch for? Why won't they do it? For many it is because quite frankly, they don't want Christ to return. They like things the way they are. They are comfortable in the world. They don't groan and weep against evil and wickedness in our times, they justify and at times even support it! The job of these kinds of pastors is to make you comfortable in the world as well, giving you some useless homilies you don't even have to apply to your lives in Sunday's sermons. "Don't forget to tithe your 10%" sermons get the majority of the pastors sermon time. That and invite your (rich) friends to Church next Sunday.
Yes, dear readers, there is a generation that is accursed in all they do as they do the things listed above. They may be making lots of the devils paper (money) but that is the reward for faithful service to the Lord of Darkness. The other side of that reward is too horrible for your mind to contemplate. So I ask and exhort all who love our Lord to do what you can to be totally different than this generation. Don't be haughty with the arrogant look, but be humble and kind. Don't mistreat your elderly parents who may have some 'issues', but love them, respect them and when they get too old to function fully in the world, take care of them. There is an enormous blessing in that. Be kind and generous with those less fortunate than yourself. That includes the homeless and the poor. Have and keep and attitude of gratitude each and every day. Keep your word, never lie or break it.
Be a light in the darkness, a torch in a dark cave. Speak truth in a world full of lies, and live on the basis of love instead of self. Put Christ Jesus at the center of all you do, honor him in your words, thoughts and deeds and brothers, you will escape the punishment that has been specially prepared for this generation.
