Wheat - WW
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. - Rev 6:6
There can be no security without food. Hungry people will revolt no matter how fair and honest a government is. Empty bellies will overthrow a government faster than a band of well armed Al Qaeda terrorists. This is the quiet threat our world faces. It is a threat that for the most part, will bring no major headlines and will not be cited as a major cause of political upheaval. But it is there nonetheless, the silent destabalizer of governments whose populations for the most part, live on the economic edge. The above verse is instructive because a 'penny' is roughly a days wage for an ordinary person. Indeed, many bible translations today use the term 'days wage' instead of penny.
Food prices are becoming a major issue today. Even at the global Davos confab, leaders warned that rising food prices could lead to unrest or economic war. Like most crisis, there is more than one reason for it. However the cause for this one I think can be broken down into these major categories.
1) Increasing global population, increasing demand
These are the major reasons why today we are seeing some of the rapid price increases and none of these factors shows any sign of decreasing. Instead, all seem to be set for significant increases in the years ahead.
2) Destructive global weather/climate patterns and irregular warfare, reducing supply
3) Speculators driving up prices for profit.
4) Inflationary monetary policies put in place by Western Central banks in response to the Economic Crisis of 2007-2008.
Let us take a look at Russian Wheat exports. Russia had some devastating fires hit it last year caused largely by Chechen Rebels who used dry conditions to lob flammables into fields causing horrific damage. Low tech terrorism was the cause coupled with environmental factors. You can click over to this site and see just how these fires effected Russian Wheat Exports.
Then there is Pakistan, which saw some devastating floods and many districts are still very much effected by flooding. This may as well effected Wheat exports though the news is not all bad, at least as far as wheat is concerned.
In Australia, we have very recently seen massive flooding that will deeply effect food availability in Oceania. Indeed, because of the disaster, Wheat exports have been halted due to transportation problems according to news reporting. Australia, by the way, is now a major exporter of wheat to another Arab nation with internal difficulties, Saudi Arabia.
Is America immune to these kids of disasters? I think not.
Those nations that are most vulnerable to food price shocks are likely to have increased frequency of domestic unrest as well as social and political upheaval. In the Arab world, these situations will be exploited by radical Islamists and terrorist organizations. These are nations, as we have seen in the Arab world, that have some evere economic challenges. They are located in parts of Asia and Africa and of course the Middle East. Such places are likely to see many political challenges ahead as food prices soar and do so to such a degree that at times, obtaining it is beyond the means of many of its population.
Between March 2007 and March 2008, global food prices increased an average of 43 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund. During that time period, wheat, soybean, corn, and rice prices increased by 146 percent, 71 percent, 41 percent, and 29 percent, respectively, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Rising food prices contributed to a significant increase in food insecurity worldwide, particularly among poorer populations. Approximately 1 billion people—or one sixth of the world’s population—subsist on less than $1 per day. Of this population, 162 million survive on less than $0.50 per day. At the household level, increasing food prices have the greatest effect on poor and food-insecure populations, who spend 50 to 60 percent or more of their income on food, according to the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). Overall, increased food prices particularly affect developing countries, and the poorest people within those countries, where populations spend a larger proportional share of income on basic food commodities. - USAID
It no longer takes any kind of lurid imagination to see just how destabalizing this can be, one look at Egypt and one can understand. Countries where there are a large number of poor and disaffected people will be much more likely to see serious disturbances in the months and years ahead.
Kenya is an example of mostly climate based food shortage. A major drought has reduced water availability and deeply affected food production and livestock feeding capabilities. The UN OCHA has a pdf snapshot of the crisis that can be found here. The situation in the Horn of Africa also remains critical where the price of food has been a most serious issue.
A food security crisis impacting on the lives and health of millions of people was confirmed in the Horn of Africa
region in 2008. This crisis was different in that people’s ability to cope was in great part due to external factors
they had no control over, particularly fluctuations in the costs of oil and food commodities on the global markets.
These factors combined with chronic food insecurity already faced by millions in this region created an
exceptional crisis. . ReleifWeb (31Jan2011)
In short the situation in many places is dire and shows little signs of getting any better. But knowing there is a crisis is a far cry from doing anything to prevent its spread. While donor fatigue has certainly set in for many of the food crisis in the developing and third world, the possibility of a food crisis hitting the developed world, like the USA is not one that western leaders want to contemplate. This is especially true because many are dealing with some of the most pressing and difficult budgetary issues faced since the great depression. America's challenge will be as substantial in many ways as that of many nations in the developing world as people begin to be forced to manage expectations to a significantly lower level than they have been accustomed to. I say this because, weather any of my readers want to hear this or not, food prices are going to rise significantly in the US as well, as combination of the same four factors named above will effect America.
The tragedy of America is that her leaders are most likely to exacerbate the situation with 'beerhall' political-economic theory rather than sound policies that are both sustainable and prevent the kinds of social and political disruptions that can bring all kinds of unwanted and irreversable results. I speak here for many of my libertarian friends. Having strong libertarian leanings myself, I do agree that our government needs to be smaller, do less, spend less and give more power to the individuals, state and local governments. But many just want to pull the rug out from under people. I think of retirees in particular, who have paid a hefty sum of money into their retirement plans for decades and now some 'know-it-all' blogger who thinks he has all the answers wants to impoverish folks in favor of their pet political theory. These are the same guys who I link to often here at Watson's Web who ranted and raved at the theft of trillions by Wall Street who now want to steal Granny's retirement to balance state budgets. This kind of economic hypocrisy is all to common in the debate.
On the issue of food stamps... do you want America to look like Egypt in 5 years? Go ahead, cut them, but what are you going to do when it is your job that gets shipped to India and your 401k will only buy you a bag of groceries with less than .50 cents change? Don't say it can't happen because it is going to happen in millions of more homes as this economic crisis moves on from bad to worse. It is easy to opine about these things with a full belly, a warm house and a kid in a private school. But harsh realities have already hit millions of Americans who have lost jobs, homes, families and are on the verge of genuine homelessness.
So can a food uprising happen in America? I would cautiously say yes. But a number of factors would have to transpire first. First our dollar would have to become an unwelcome commodity in many places. I think this is inevitable given the kinds of economic polices in place now across the nation. Second, as the present food crisis slowly encompasses the Globe, America will probably still be a large net exporter of food. As food becomes more valuable on the markets this will help our trade deficits. But this is only good as long as we have enough to export and given the number of disasters we have been experiencing, this is not a foregone conclusion. Indeed, a careful balance will have to be kept as to what we export, what he store and what we sell here at home. But keep this in mind, people who are not working and are not getting any kind of aid will not eat. Again, think Egypt. America has been able to forestall large mass uprisings because for the most part, everyone eats and the vast majority have homes to live in. This is changing.
National Alliance To End Homelessness, State of Homlessness In America 2011
In short, America's economic situation is worsening and a food price shock is something that can throw hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions over the economic edge. The food price shock is already hitting much of the world where people are the most vulnerable.
The Desperation Of The Unwanted.
And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
The holy scriptures has some truly interesting passages and this is one of my mothers favorites. Here are four men who have leprosy examining the dire situation they find themselves in and decide to go into the camp of the enemy knowing it could mean certain death. But they were so desperate from hunger, that it simply did not matter. I think this situation sums up how people can become so desperate that change, any kind of change of their situation is better than sitting around, doing nothing and starving to death. Now I have never been that hungry, and God forbid I ever should be. But there are many people in the world who are at or near this point of desperation. So dire is their situation that they say, “what have we got to lose, our hunger pangs?”
I think the major tragedy for many Americans who blindly support so many of America's policies around the world is that they just don't care enough about their fellow man to stop and consider, seriously consider, what we have been doing to people around the world. The Egyptian people are a perfect, but hardly the only example. Far too many Americans lazily read the first few sentences of a newspaper article about how bad thing are in many of these places, yawn and turn to the sports page ignoring our (and their) own malevolent role in the plight of hundreds of millions of people.
This kind of willful ignorance that winks at repression will come back and haunt the American people. God hates and will surely recompense injustice, cruelty and the trampling of the poor.
Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause. Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them. For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right.
The danger for America is not only the way she deals with the poor, but also in her arrogance. Hopefully President Obama can break this trend in America. As hard and as critial as I have been on the President, I think he does want to do many of these things, but those around him work tirelessly to keep them from happening.
As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
What American needs now is some soul searching. She needs to seriously consider the needs of her poor citizens and the way she has treated the poor and downtrodden for decades around the world. If she does not, God will surely turn and become the enemy of America and put an end to her.
The last thing this nation needs is to begin cutting safety nets that have kept America internally at peace for many decades, especially in a time of economic crisis. These programs may not sit will with beerhall libertarians, but they keep massive protests from happening, American cities turning into third world slums and crime from rising to never before seen proportions, because I am here to tell you in no uncertain terms - The quickest way to to civil unrest are millions of hungry stomachs.

Money went to contractors disbarred or suspeneded. While those on the loopy right talk about cutting food stamps, this kind of thing continues and dwarfs what we spend on this essential program. Why? because in many cases the DOD fraudsters are paying the Representative's campaign bills. Read the report here. Read Sen. Sanders analysis here.

States Win Suit: Obamacare Unconstitutional
If Obama had gone with a single payer system that is voluntary and had the moxy to reign in health care costs, which is set to take a very sizeable chunk out of folks pay, he would not be having so many problems now and the Democrats would still control the House. I do not sympathize with the motives of the GOP in wanting to do away with Obamacare, I do not sympathize with the President who seemed to want just about anything passed to claim a 'victory'. Obamacare does have some good provisions, but the bad in it is not pretty, in fact it is downright ugly. A whole new army of IRS agents to chase God knows who, real-time access to your bank account to make sure you pay your doctor bill before your rent, forcing those who cannot afford insurance to buy it, and death panels, oh yes... its in there, but not in the way Mrs. Palin made it an issue. Here is a good article that talks about the issue without the political hyperbole we have been hearing. I think one very grave misconception people have is that this is going to insure everyone. It isn't. State governments must decide to pick up the tab and expand coverage. Here is a look at an article about Tennessee. Take a real good look around the nation at state budgets, they are in bad shape and getting worse. Obamacare is a little more a weighted leg-iron on a drowning man. So even if you are lucky enough to get insured the first or second year after Obamacare's effecitive date, unless some budgetary miracle happens the states will simply not be able to afford it, especially as costs rise significantly. So who is going to pay for these new enrollees? Where is the money going to come from? This is a major issue that effects everyone and I am not writing this from some partisan perspective. Both parties have failed us all miserably, though the people won't understand that until they see the price of Healthcare in 2015; employed our unemployed, rich or poor, democrat or republican. There is no free ride, poor Americans who think Obamacare is good will recoil when they see their insurance rates skyrocket, as they already have for many. Are you glad you can keep your kid on your insurance until they are 26? The President wants you to focus on that small piece of good news and forget about all of the baggage Obamacare has that you (yes Y-O-U) are going to have to pay for. So go ahead, rejoice for your 25 year old kid... you are still going to pay for his health care, with real hard earned, after tax CA$H. Most of the folks I know have already seen some pretty steep increases just since last year, there will more and much steeper if Obamacare (in its present form) is not stopped dead in its tracks and reworked into something the nation, ordinary people and the poor can reasonably afford, today and 10 years from now. And for you older Americans? You have every reason to fear the real 'death panels'.

Hundreds Of Thousands Protest Mubarak
Mubarak's Number 2 Linked To US Torture Program
The US, in its terminal shortsightedness still clings to Mubarak and his despotic powers and regime. Thus virtually ensuring that whatever comes after Mubarak will eventually turn Anti-American. How can America best facilitate and encourage the rise of Radical Islamic regimes in the Middle East? Let Obama, Clinton and Biden keep on backing dictators, despots and tyrants and such an eventuality is guaranteed. Mr. President, admit our policy has been a failure, change course, embrace 'change' however difficult it may be. Stop looking for 'the easy way out', this is has been your pattern from Obamacare to defense spending. Egypt wants change. You would do better to do your best to work with rather than against the people, however odious some of its leaders may be to you. You will still have some powerful political and economic levers to use if a new government comes to power. Take a chance, roll the dice and support a smooth transition that focuses on the needs of ordinary people rather than the swollen bank accounts of a few corrupt men which were stolen from the people. It is time to stop paying lip service to Democracy. Either you support it or you don't and no reasonable person believes Mubarak has maintained power legitimately.

Egypt - WW
(pdf will be up later)
The political drama now transpiring in Egypt is both tragic and captivating. The mass revolt we are now seeing is the result of a decades long process of political repression coupled with 'disappearances' of people, torture, political corruption all with done with the full financial and political support of the US. Our support for the Mubarak is not some lurid, anti-American footnote in this situation, but a very important dynamic in determining what kind of Egypt will emerge from this crisis. The entire situation that is transpiring in the middle east could change its political and economic landscape permanently and move it further away for the US or even into a group of political entities who are openly hostile to America. None of this is exaggeration or hyperbole. This is a very serious crisis that is for the most part, of America's own making.
Predicting the crisis
First off let let me tell you something that has not hit the mainstream media, and may never will. The President is livid, incensed and enraged at the intelligence community (IC) over their inability to predict this unfolding crisis. So much so that the DNI attempted to get access to him and was firmly rebuffed. The President, it seems has little tolerance for the kinds of incompetence that has made up the IC. Since it was reorganized under Bush, it is broken. I cannot stress just how really screwed up it is today. Solid and truly prescient predictive analysis that does not bode well for the political factions that infest Washington does not get forwarded is derided or otherwise hidden from decision makers, if indeed the decision makers even want to hear it and usually... they don't. I am informed that a whole cache of memo's, warnings and other documents that foretold of this crisis and were politically 'deep-sixed' will soon arrive on the Presidents desk to show him just how broken this new system is and how Bush Administration officials who ran our intelligence agencies were hiding real threats from our leaders by refusing to put forward hard to swallow predictive analysis and rather, parroted the extremely lucrative 'war on terror' mantra and slogans. They forwarded only information that supported pre-arranged conclusions in order to please a plethora of beltway bandits who made hundreds of billions of dollars from this geopolitical scam.
Yes, I use the word scam because that is what it was and is. It is a scam that is now, in the Arab world, backfiring in our faces. Islamic terrorism was never a serious geopolitical threat, it was certainly an annoyance and at times could be most troublesome, but not the overarching threat that has cost America over 2 trillion dollars, with disastrous results. Now the collateral damage is happening in places like Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen and other places who are tired of the corrupt regimes America has supported as they beat back the people with American made weapons, contractors and advisors. Some of these nations were places that the US used in their extraordinary rendition program because they allowed and were expert in the arts of torture. The program has been a diplomatic hot potato for some time. These things are not lost on the populations of these nations and they are tired of seeing their nations used by the Americans who have little respect for the people, their culture and only use the people and these nations as expendable pawns in their cynical geopolitical machinations. Meanwhile, ordinary people become so desperate and maltreated that they see suicide as the only option. The situation for ordinary Egyptians is dire and getting worse.

How bad? Well today a nation that once was the Rome's breadbasket now is the worlds largest importer of Wheat. The situation is bad because Mubarak announced that he would cut food subsidies now after these protests he has changed his tune 180 degrees. In short, the crisis in the Arab world is one that has been talked about both by Arab writers, western writers and even in US intelligence reports (later deep-sixed) and no one did anything, other than issue some weak, duplicitous statements on our support for 'human rights', while the CIA flights landed at a torture facility. We let the people starve while we sell these corrupt governments all the arms they need to repress the people. Not to digress too much here, but even within our own Security agencies our polices have been derided by those charged with carrying out these odious policies. I cannot tell you just how many seasoned intelligence professionals just walked out the door during the Bush administration. If we lack the ability to deal with many of these issues today, it is largely because of some of the nonsensical policies put in place during those dark years. In short, more and more insiders see America the very enemy of everything we preach.
But let us get back to Egypt. What kind of government are we likely to see when the dust settles, what kind of policies will she implement towards her own people, towards the US and towards her neighbors? These are the questions that should be asked inside key departments of the US. While I am sure they are being asked, are the real (and political hot-potato) answers being discussed or are they once a gain being buried deep and hidden from view. Israel is one very important example. Israel is extremely concerned about the events transpiring in Egypt, especially if elements of the Muslim Brotherhood get significant power in a new regime. Let us remember that the Peace treaty between Israel and Egypt is a very important dynamic in the Middle East and its abrogation by a more militant Islamic government would almost certainly spark some kind of conflict in the region. Let us also not forget that the Al Qaeda is credited of having its origin from the Muslim Brotherhood. The present state of affairs only further complicates US efforts at a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. We need to keep in mind that the residents of Gaza, who are often given the misnomer 'Palestinians' by those to lazy to look or are looking for some propaganda tool to denigrate Islrael, are in reality Egyptians, caught in the middle of the aforementioned peace agreement.
Having a hostile Egypt on Israel's southern border is hardly an eventuality Tel-Aviv contemplates with any degree of relish, but one that may happen when all is said and done. My guess is that the US and Israel are probably working hard to contain any damage that a new regime will bring to these fragile political questions. Both will advise Mubarak on how he can stay in power, secretly arming him and sending 'consultants' to advise him in new methods of repression and political deception. This may be one reason why Mubarak chose his intelligence chief as his new number two. Such a man would have ties to the US and probably helped facilitate many of America's anti-human rights policies that has brought Egypt to the point of chaos in the first place. Such solutions are short term and will not deal with the long term issues we have ignored for far too long. More quiet repression is exactly what we should not support, covertly or overtly. The problem is as I see it after reading think tanks opine on this situation is that the US intelligentsia are still not dealing with the realities of life in the Middle East. They still do not 'get it'. They refuse to truly understand (some perfunctory and 'politically correct' acknowledgment can be found in some policy papers) that the there is a breaking point for the poor and the oppressed and a large swath of the Arab world has reached it. Algeria, Jordan, Egypt, and Yemen have seen a serious breaking point. The cries of the people are not exactly the same in every nation but they are similar. Much of it has to do with poverty, the lack of economic opportunities, violent repression (often US sponsored) and deep rooted, endemic political corruption. Once again, the setting of oneself on fire is a sign of desperation, not hope. When people have nothing to lose but their misery; tanks, tear gas and gunfire do not dissuade them.
When a free man dies, he loses the pleasure of life. A slave loses his pain. Death is the only freedom a slave knows. That's why he's not afraid of it. That's why we'll win.
- From the Movie Spartacus
I think this simple truth is lost on our thinkers in America. Never having felt the pangs of hunger or watched their children go without food and then having a policeman beat their head in for begging, these harsh realities are not within the experience of our leaders, many of whom are millionaires many times over. These things are not part of the experience of those who write at our major think tanks, who are funded quite liberally by America's richest and most powerful corporations. They are more inclined to see this crisis as something that must be dealt with with the same political weapons that brought is this situation in the first place, more repression, more corrupt leadership, more backroom dealing and, to put it simply, more ignoring the needs, wishes and aspirations of the people. For years, the US has been able to prop up these despotic and authoritarian regimes with little real opposition. This has changed, perhaps permanently. The primary problem with our leadership in both intelligence and scholastic circles is best put this way, they are far too concerned with political correctness, refuse to be effectively critical of US policy, refuse to acknowledge major policy errors and even if they are recognized, are more inclined to repeat them than correct them (there are some tepid exceptions to this) . Recent statements by Vice President Biden, who thinks Mubarak should stay is a perfect example of this geopolitical learning disability.
The risk and result of this kind of thinking can been learned from the Iranian Revolution of 1979. In this we find a chain of events it is almost forbidden to liken events today to. There we had a corrupt Shah, propped up by America who used torture and other methods of repression to pacify the people. The regime eventually fell and gave us a hard like Islamic regime. In Egypt, where the only alternative political movement is the Muslim Brotherhood and many of the complaints of the people are the same, it is not too difficult to draw parallels, though once again, US think tanks will be paid not to draw those obvious conclusions and do their best to blame Islamics, the people or just about anyone but their own shortsighted, repressive and anti-democratic policies.
What will happen to Egypt’s Christians?
This is not an easy question to answer at this stage of the game, but their situation is likely to change and for the worse if a more radical Islamic government comes to power. One person, Former Ambassador John Bolton, sees danger ahead for Egypt’s Coptic community. His fear is that the chances of the radicalization of Egypt are quite high. He goes on to warn, probably correctly that a regime with the Muslim Brotherhood at the core will not lead to any kind of democracy but only a regime that that is more radical than its predecessor. This possible (probable) future should correctly worry Egypt's Coptic community, which makes up a recognizable portion of Egypt’s population, as high as 20% by some estimates. Indeed, one must seriously question just how civilized a nation is where acts of wanton terrorism can be waged against peace loving Christians by elements believed to be, at least in part, agents of the state. It is hard to understand such a mentality for Egypt’s Copts who are anything but violent, but are quite politically aware. One writer seems to captivate some of the thinking of Copts in Egypt when he described the fact that the Coptic Church is very leary of Islamic immigration to the west. They have had little power in Egypt and have seen their freedoms slip away for the past 60 years. This is one reason why Copts are very frightened for America. This insightful author points out that in America, Muslims receive Justice and a fair hearing in US courts and that such a thing is no longer true for Christians in Egypt. The reason seems clear, the rise of Islamism and the intolerance such a political religious system inevitably brings. One look at places like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, large swaths of Indonesia, Pakistan (name your Islamic nation here) and one can see that tolerance and Islamic governments are mutually exclusive terms, despite what our President tells us. Thus I see danger for Egypts Copts no matter who gets into power. If it is a more western leaning leader, they will want to placate Islamic elements and will persecute the Copts; if it is an Islamic one, they will persecute the Copts. In any event, I do not think this revolution will bode well for Egypt’s Christians.
Who Is Next?
This is the thousand dollar question. When one senior State Department official saw what was happening in Egypt (and the bloodbath which is far more extensive than the MSM is telling us) they thew up their hands and said “The Saudi's are next!”. What is so sad is that this is almost certainly true. Many of the grievances that the Saudi's have with their despotic regime is the same as that of Mubarak. President Obama can make phone calls to the Saudi king and wish him well as he comes to America and get the very best health care that is denied to most Americans, to a man who is a brutal dictator who calls himself a 'King' and then turn around and chide China about their human rights record. His is an exercise in political duplicity. I want to make this perfectly clear to all of my American readers; when you start paying $20 a gallon for gas because there is a Radical Islamic government in Riyadh, who will no longer sell Oil to the US and we find those massive Arms purchase made by the Saudi's (and sold to him by Bush and Obama) used counter to rather than in support of US policy, you will realize just how important these issues are. Let us face facts, the Saudi King is a tyrant and thinks Egyptian citizens are 'infiltrators'! He is, like Mubarak, very much part of the problem.
''I told my investigators... 'What crime do you have against me?'... Their answer was nothing else but beating me... They tied my hands behind my back, then they shackled my legs, then tied my hands to my feet. After, they pulled me flat on the ground and then they started beating me. This was their answer.''
A political prisoner held in Saudi Arabia in 1996 spoke these words. He and many other former prisoners have revealed a culture of police brutality, torture and ill-treatment in many police stations, prisons and detention centres across the country. Beatings with sticks, electric shocks, cigarette burns and nail-pulling are some of the torture methods often described.
These are the kinds of people America upholds, people completely out of touch with what is happening with ordinary people. Men who will one day, be swept from power and be forced to flee and perhaps even, as Ben Ali of Tunisia, become wanted men. I am here to tell you, the Saudi's may not be 'next' but their day is fast approaching. Already they have had some serious problems. Internally the very same issues that face the much of the Islamic world is faced by the Saudi's. Do our leaders want to hear this? Are they dealing in reality or in the same tired old policies and duplicity that is the principle cause of these revolutions? I can tell you that little will really change in Washington. The rotten thinking processes are too far progressed to change patterns now. So in five to ten years I look for an arch of Islamic militancy to emerge where we once had good relations with brutal, corrupt and authoritarian governments and sided with regimes who crushed the aspirations of the people. They will look to radical Islam to solve their problems and America will find its few friends in the region will be so weakened that too close of relations with us will be impossible if the leaders want to remain in power.
Saudi Arabia's criminal justice system facilitates torture. Lack of judicial supervision of arrest and detention, denial of prompt access to relatives and a doctor, and no access to lawyers all leave prisoners extremely vulnerable to abuse. Torture is used to extract confessions and to enforce discipline. Sometimes it is inflicted apparently without reason. - Amnesty International
What is Next?
The situation on the ground is too fluid to make accurate predictions as to what will happen next. But based on what I have seen, the ball is clearly in the military's court. The police have fallen away from Mubarak. They are the ones now who will decide who will take the reigns of power. My guess is that the Army will consult with the US the UK (which as long had important ties to Egypt) certain EU states and to everyone’s shock, Israel as well will probably be consulted on just who will take Mubarak's place. The MSM seems to be pushing Mohammed El Baradei as the likely successor. A Scientist by profession who has had international name recognition for his work with the UN, he seems to be one of the more moderate voices of whom the Muslim Brotherhood said they will back. He has been a frequent critic of US policy. But the fly in the ointment is probably going to be the US, who simply does not seem to want Mubarak to leave and has become far too accustomed to (despite politically timed utterances to the contrary) Mubarak corrupt and despotic rule to end it. Breaking up is hard to do.
The army will probably back whoever can bring peace to Egypt and reduce political tensions and keep the flow of arms coming from the Americans. Even the army has to be concerned that orders to fire into protestors in masse could cause serious morale problems and even isolated pockets of 'conscientious rebellion' (I'm sorry sir, those orders... could you repeat them.... you're breaking up... please repeat those orders... our radio equipment is malfunctioning...). My guess is that soon Mubarak will leave Egypt and find some evil empire to take him in and with him, a large portion of the Egyptian treasury with him. A lot of that money is already gone, taken when his wife left Egypt early last week.
In summary, Egypt will change. The people may be satisfied with a few bread crumbs from Mubarak’s table, but probably not for long. An arch of Chaos is developing in the middle east from Tunisia all the way to Iraq. Global economic pressures coupled with long term political repression are the mix and the result is an explosion of rage that is likely to change the middle east forever. I think the real question is for us in the west is how much is America like Egypt? This is not an academic question as millions of America have slipped into poverty since the economic crisis began. It is good that some are really asking the question.

Afghans Refugees: Stranded In The Slaugherhouse
ISP's Are The New Secret Police
As sad as that sounds, its true. But why stop there? So are your major search engines, computer software manufacturers and computer hardware manufacturers. From Notebooks to routers; Graphics cards to microprocessors, they are all part of the new Gestapo. Gestapo, was an acronym in Nazi Germany for Gehiem Staats Polizei (Secret State Police). Today our new Gestapo puts all kinds of things inside their products to spy on folks without their knowledge,. In other words, all this is done in Secret aiding the police with the sanction of the state. People do not understand that just because we do not see marching men with jackboots in the street and ethnic minorities scrubbing sidewalks for some mental defective in an SS uniform, does not mean we are not well on the road to seeing such things right here in America. The Germans did not even believe the holocaust was happening in the heat at the height of it and the government had pat explanations as to what happened to all of those people. They, simply were not told and those that were aware did not want to believe. It was not 'convenient' to have views contrary to the state. The death camps were a state secret and those privy to it kept their mouth shut or joined the victims. So while you sit snugly laughing at folks like me who do their best to warn you, I can only tell you that America is like a man who voluntarily walks into jail and sits there and waits patently for the jailer to lock the door, not knowing he has seen the sunset for the last time in his life the day the door slammed shut. They are building the ultimate 'roach motel', you can check in anytime you like, but you can never leave. Today, you are not a terrorist, tomorrow, the color of your skin, political views or religious beliefs may very well put you in place where you cannot talk to a lawyer, cannot see a judge, cannot see relatives and make it a crime for anyone to tell them where you are. Folks these laws are on the books now, today and let no one tell you that American citizens with no ties to Islam or terrorist organizations have not been held in Guantanamno and died there. I say these things to all out there, especially Christians who think you are doing the right thing supporting these polices. One day, the devil will turn the tables 180 degress on you and who are you going to run to when it is your name on a 'terror list' for the crime of having a bible study? The God you ignored when he COMMANDED you to do unto others as you would have them do unto you? While you spouted political slogans and rebelled against God's commands, do you think he will bow his ear and listen to you whine about the terrors you were once content to see happen to others, whose names and crimes you did not even know but whose torture you supported in your wicked cries for blood? Folks, a fair trial in an open court is not a 'crazy' solution to this problem, it is not an unpatriotic solution, it is not an evil solution. It is the solution 200+ years of American legal jurisprudence have given the people that we are now secretly denying some. I ask you all to consider what I say here in all seriousness because no one is going to come on TV and tell you the New Reich has arrived. Someone will just come kick your door in and take you away, while Bill Maher's Comedy routines are playing on the TV, blaring in the corner while your babies are crying and the neighbors peep out the window to gawk at who they are taking away today. If you want to be innocent until proven guilty, then grant that right to others.
Egypt Shuts Down Internet
A very ominous development. More here. Why? Because if they were about to begin a massacre, firing into crowds and embark on a mass killing of activists, this is the one the first things they would do. Having no inside info on Egpyt or on the loyalty of its police and military towards the regime I can make no further informed comment other than to say that before such a turn of events (substantial violent repression resulting in hundreds, perhaps thousands of lives) took place, Mubarak would have to ensure the loyalty of his security forces and that they will not turn on him, join the protestors just so some general can take the reigns of the state when Mubarak is deposed. Keep your eyes on the methods used to disburse popular anger towards corrupt regimes, we will probably see a repeat of those methods many, many times in the years to come.

More here... What we are seeing is the results of America's long range policy of ignoring deep social problems here while propping up a corrupt regime. This is so sad that it had to come to this but this is going to happen all over the world where we have ignored long standing social issues in favor of the shortsightness that gives power to the corrupt at the expense of the people. Egypt is a nation where torture is routine. The chickens are all coming home to roost. Mubarak was supposed to speak and has not yet done so. It is not outside of the realm of possibiliby that he may be either under some kind of duress or making plans to leave the country. Until he shows his face, his present disposition is in question. Other questions are if indeed he is still in charge, can the military be counted on to fire into crowds? How will that play out politically even if he is able to remain in power, how will the Muslim Brotherhood, which has relied mostly on peaceful change react? What kind of relations will Egypt have with the US if the US continues to side with Mubarak and his repression and he loses power? This is a tightrope but one of Mubarak's and America's own making.
Courts Give Lawyers Carte Blanche To Raid Facebook Posts
Pretty sad. But for years little sites like this told folks to be real careful and guard your privacy like you would your bank accounts. Few paid attention. I know... I see the millions of potential victims posting their whole life story on these Social Networking sites. Keep this in mind, the internet NEVER FORGETS! It is not as much a question as having something to hide but how that information can be used against you or to rob you of your identity, keep you from getting a job, determining if you can get health insurance at a low rate, seeing if any of your friends have 'anti-government' feelings, see if you are good looking and worth some pervert stalking you. These are not imaginary threats, not any more. The saddest part I think is how corporations buy and sell all kinds of the most personal information on each and everyone of us. Some of the buyers of this information are organized criminals. One major software security company had a major organized crime figure on its board of directors! Many corporations have ties to the criminal underworld. Some of this stuff you cannot stop, but some if it you can.

Most everyone else sees America's terminal fiscal position, even the Chinese who hold much of that debt downgraded our credit rating.

Budget Deficit To Grow To 1.5 Trillion - Bloomberg
Reading the stories about how the President plans on reducing the budget, how gas prices are set to rise considerably by years end, to $4 perhaps $5 a gallon, how the DOD's real budget will not be decreased, despite cuts widely circulated in US propaganda outlets, how food and other commodity prices are soaring, and are set to rise considerably around the world I think it meet I talk just a moment about deficits and inflation today.
There is an unbreakable link and relationship between how much money the Fed prints in QEII and the price of fuel, food, Gold, Platinum, Coltan, etc in the world today. If the prices of these elements are rising, it has as much to do with strange weather, flooding, deforestation, limited supply as it does with Western central banks willingness to bail out the banks and more importantly with the Federal Reserve printing up the money to pay for about half of our budget deficit.
For those who are not aware of what inflation is, let me break it down to you in layman's terms. Most people see it as a noticeable rise in prices. This is true in so far as the effect of inflation. The rise in prices is the result, not the definition of inflation. Inflation rather, is best described as a increase in the money supply. If one looks at money as a commodity (like FX trades do) it very much responds to the laws of supply and demand. Too much supply and its value goes down, too little and the value goes up.
This sometimes is difficult for laypeople to understand as they see the dollar as a steady store of value. But a dollar today is not worth anything like a dollar was 40 years ago. Inflation is a simple part of modern central banking, as long as dollars (or Euro's or Pounds) can be printed up at will, there is going to be inflation. It is why a person who bought a house in 1960 for $20,000 can now sell it (even after the real estate bust) for around $400,000. When the supply of money is increased over time, its effects seem minimal and are very gradual and as time passes, wages catch up with the rate of inflation, at least for the most part.
But what we are seeing now has not been seen on this level since the days of the Weimar republic. Printing up billions of dollars worth of currency to pay the governments bills is a recipe for the same kind of disaster that brought the world shopping carts full of money to buy a loaf of bread and popular anger that eventually brought us men like Adolph Hitler, who promised and gave Germany economic prosperity, at the price of liberty, peace and six million Jews.
Inflation is a dangerous thing. When food gets too expensive to afford people will revolt, when people cannot afford to heat their homes, they will revolt, when they cannot afford gasoline to get to work they will revolt. One look at what is happening in the Arab world as I write this should give us all serious pause as to the effects of continued corruption, rising poverty coupled with high inflation. It does not take much for the whole tinderbox to explode. Wikileaks was just the match. The barrels of dynamite have been sitting in the Arab world for decades.
I say this in all earnestness, America cannot continue to use the printing press to pay her bills. This year we will probably see something close to $5 dollars a gallon for gas, next year, if we keep on printing, it will be higher, perhaps much higher. It is for this reason I have written so clearly and consistently on the level of US government spending. If you think your employer or your welfare check or your COLA adjustment or your pension will offset these new inflationary prices, you are not dealing in fiscal realities. To pay for those price rises will, mean (for most of them) just that the government will have to print more money to pay COLA or an increase in these entitlements. They may do it the first year, but won't be able to afford it the next as inflation then becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
Bloggers around the nation have spoken with a great deal of anger at Bernanke's QEII policy. I understand and feel their anger, but Bernanke is not (as much as I dislike his policies) your problem. He is doing the only thing available to him to keep the US from defaulting on its debts, printing money. Directing anger at him is like being angry at a fireman who has to use dangerous chemicals to put out an oil fire. You can use the chemicals or watch the whole facility burn down. So I do my best to restrain my anger at him for this policy. Will it fail? Of course it will. He knows it, I know it, but for a short spell we will get a bump in the economy but at the cost of higher inflation. The longer we have QEII, the greater the inflation. Don't let the MSM fool you, you cannot print your way to prosperity.
No dear readers, our problem is, as much and economic one as it is a political one and this is why I have been so hard on the President and the Congress. This is where the blame and problem lie, and not just with Obama. It really goes all the way back to Ronald Reagan who started us on this path to fiscal oblivion. Every President and Congress since then has perpetuated fiscal policies that were unsustainable and are the single greatest danger to the continuance of our republic. Our system is already bankrupt, but our power as the economic center of the world has given us considerable time to correct our profligacy in ways the Weimar republic could not. But the more we print, the less fiscal disciple we exercise, the fewer people (nations/Rich investors) will put confidence in our dollar and that spells real trouble for America, especially when our primary export has been the dollar whose main selling point has been its relative stability and its requirement (until very recently) in all oil transactions. Every day we waste printing money and not dealing in realtity is a day wasted. It is like overtime in a football game, and the ball has yet to be snapped at the closing seconds because the huddle is taking too long.
Here is where the rubber meets the road, Congress and the President must work to not just control the rise in spending in things like the DOD, it must significantly reduce what we actually spend. This means a thorough review of all contracting, something Secretary Gates has already started, but with results that do not reduce the actual size of the DOD budget. The same must go for the DHS, a massive, unneeded bureaucracy that is more of a 'pigs trough' for government contractors for political payback for political campaign contributions and a hiding place for sex criminals than it is a place for real Homeland defense. Using high visibility, showy and ineffective body searches, they can demonstrate how 'important' they are and thus hopefully avoid the budget axe.
The need for security is always good selling point with Americans. They want to feel safe and the larger the budget, the safer they feel, it doesn't matter if some of the money is going to pay the salary of folks charged with stalking and child abductors.
Spending money like this makes just gives the folks they are supposed to be protecting us from, a Federal Badge. That is not security; that is insanity, a growing problem in American society and a fatal one in Security personnel.
America just spends too much money and we must have the confidence of investors if we are to continue to have a dollar that can buy real goods. This brings us to the Chinese, who own a great deal of our debt and contrary to establishment economists, are capable of dumping our Treasuries and dollars, and frankly have been in the process of doing just that for quite some time. They have been buying all kinds of natural resources around the world. I have talked at length about it on this site. Insiders here at Watson's Web know that there is much more to the story than you are going to find on the Web.
To summarize, when you see prices skyrocket around the world and the price of food becomes a real issue, there are indeed many reasons for it. But the main one the one that most economists hope you miss is that Central banks are printing up too much money and undermining confidence in their own economies by bailing out banks whose business models are unsustainable. Investors then flee currencies that are controlled by these forces and move into things that cannot be printed up. Like Gold, silver and platinum, food, and other real things that cannot be created out of thin air.

DOJ Seeks Mandatory Data Retention For ISP's - Slashdot
As usual, they are worried about child porn while doing little to stop the human trafficking that provides this wicked material. Molest, buy or sell a child and the DOJ won't do much, look at a picture and the whole US government will land on your neck. If you are murdered exposing it, no one in authority will help. For years the DOD has had some extremely serious problems with its employees downloading this evil right inside the pentagon!! People screamed and no one did anything. Finally, a slow moving tepid and forgotten about investigation is underway.
It is not about the kids. It's not about catching freaks, its about having an excuse to continue more repressive and intrusive spying on people. The way to do that is to make sure the source material is readily available and unprosecuted so they can complain about the "prevalence of online child pornography" to get more power to spy. When we get leadership that really cares about kids and dealing seriously with those who molest, abduct, abuse, buy, sell and murder children, things may change, in the meantime no one seems to want to do anything but spy.

The Power Of The Blood - WW
The Power Of The Blood.
One of the things that God has reminded me about over the years is the power of the blood of Christ. For we Christians, the shedding of Christ's blood was the only way man could be saved. The simplicity and power of the Gospel can be condensed into a simple sermon on the Blood of Christ and its saving power.
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
We have been brought close to God by the precious shed blood of Christ. Let none of us ever forget it. It is because of Christ's death that we Christians are part of a magnificent inheritance. It is an inheritance that God has reserved for those that love and obey him. He has made a covenant with us, dedicated in the blood of Christ.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.
We are heirs to a new inheritance. Not at all unlike the Israelites of old who had to flee Egypt, a land of idolatry, occultism and wickedly arrogant rulers. We too will inherit our promised land but only after some trials and tribulations. After we have demonstrated (by deeds from faith) our obedience to God, will we be allowed into the promised land. Before the Jews of old began their journey into the promised land they had to endure the tribulations that befell Egypt and Pharaoh. In order to be made 'exempt' from one of the most troubling of curses that befell Egypt, the Israelite had to do exactly as God commanded and use blood to identify those who had faith in God and obeyed his voice. But belief and action were required.
For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
The saved, we who love God in these most dangerous times in the very last days must learn to cling to the cleansing and protecting power of the blood of Christ. The blood cleanses us from all sin and protects us from God's wrath, which will be displayed as never before during the last 42 months of tribulation and the antichrist kingdom. We as Christians will be protected from the wrath of God, but not necessarily the wrath of the man on of sin, who will demand that those who do not worship him be killed.
Brethren, I cannot stress this enough, God's wrath and anger towards mankind is just as real as his love and mercy and that wrath is only held in check so that men may hear the Gospel, turn from their evils and honor his creator, in humility, faith and love. Most men are not going to do that and as the earth continues to fill up with the corpses of the innocent and the poor, I can assure you that those who complain 'why doesn't God do something', will discover that God has and will do something. He has forgiven those who repent and also has a cup of woe and several vials of tribulation he will pour out on a wicked and depraved world who refuse his pleadings to turn from evil. Men will simply not give up their evil deeds, no matter what.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
Yet from the wrath of God we have a sure promise of protection from God and his holy apostles
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Brothers, I must make it plain if no one else will that the teaching that God does not want a 'battered bride' as some kind of evidence that we will not suffer persecution in these last days, is a false one. One famous female preacher has often said this followed by a statement along the lines of 'who would want to follow a God like that? This teaching is not of God. This preacher by the way lives high on the hog in a multi-million dollar mansion.
Tribulation and persecution await all who would live a Godly life in Christ and we must fully understand that the price of our salvation was the shedding of Christ's blood and for many of us, our own life's blood will be required in order to enter into God's kingdom.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Satan and his servants in this world are already making life extremely difficult for many Christians, especially in the Islamic world. Ask some of the Iraqi's in the north. We Christians in the west are not going to be exempt. Nations who hate Christians are already gaining a strong foothold in America, it is just a matter of time before what we read about happening in places like China and Iraq, begin happening in the West. The methods may change, but the goal will be the same.
It is in times of trouble that we must remember the promises of God and the blood of Christ. For with it we can come close to God and God can draw close to us. We as Christians must walk in the light and this is the only way we can be assured of that our sins are covered by Christ's precious blood.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Brothers, if we walk with God and confess our sins, God will surely forgive us. Forgiveness is only possible, and completely assured with the blood of Christ.
Let us learn to plead the blood of Christ over ourselves and families in the days to come.

Police Fear ' War On Cops' As 11 Fall In 24 Hours - MSNBC
What is driving this is not easy to say, cops increasingly feel a war is on against them. There also appears to be a great deal of anger at 'authority' figures in many places across America as people lose homes, jobs and no one seems willing to help. Cops unfortunately are the most visible target and the recent focus on so many bad ones and others getting off for murder cannot help the misperception that some have that Cops are 'bad'. To those who have been consistently victimized by them such a perception is not 'over the top' paranoia, but for some, a day to day reality.
I am a firm believer that if you want to dispel the notion of bad cops, you deal with bad cops and put them behind bars. Sadly this is not happening in many places and so the perception of police as 'out of control' cops or as a 'crook with a badge' persists.
Being a beleiver in non-violence and peace, I hate to see our peace officers subjected to any kind of violence. They provide an essential function in any civil society. But when crooked cops are encouraged by the state to remain crooked by absolving them of the most horrendous crimes, animosity towards cops is guaranteed.
One of the things that last AG during the Bush years did was make it his mission to deal with crooked cops. He saw corrupt cops and judges as a serious threat to American law and internal stability. Mr. Holder would do well to expend some real time and resources to restore people's faith in our legal systems fairness, lest people begin to take matters into their own hands with disastrous results for all of us.

RIAA Control Solicitor Generals Office: Thank Obama - Raw Story
No comment needed. If it is rich, corporate and victimized ordinary people, you can bet Obama will support it and give them more power.
These recent polls giving a psychological boost to a fledgling Presidency (go back to November and see who got pounded in the elections), don't you believe them. The reality of American media and polling is not a story you are going to hear much about but I will provide some links.
Why is the U.S. military camped out in our newsrooms?
CBS Has Military Psyops People In Newsrooms
CNN NPR Acknowledge Psyops People Worked During Kosovo War
When was the last time you saw an actual picture of the killing we have done with our deadly weapons on 5 year old, 'terrorists' or a poor illiterate sheepherder with his brains blown out by our military personell on TV? You won't. Why? Psyops. Who do you conduct Psyops on? The enemy. Now perhaps you can better understand just how our leaders view ordinary Americans. So again I ask the question, why are these folks in our news rooms and polling organizations across America?
My point is a simple one. Don't believe the polls. Look at them as a tool the powerful use to pressure or reward the President for the things he does to and for them. Look at them as a way the powerful feign a consensus on issues that they want to get done. Sure there are some good polling organizations and some private polling that reflect the real sentiments that are not available to the public. If a Poll is conducted in a politically convenient time (like just before the State of the Union and just after an election disaster) be suspicious because there is no way to indepenendtly verify their results... until election day, when these 'polls' will suddenly reflect a different reality. I will ask you a question that should not strain your brain: These polls cost money, sometimes a lot of it. Who has it, the poor man in Harlem or the rich guy on Wall Street?

Big Pharma Meets Big Gov't - NYT
Working hard together, keeping Americans broke and safe from reality. Obama has long had this vision of Big Pharma enhancning quality of life and American competitiveness. It is just that, a pipe dream. Big pharma and the prices they charge for their drugs is the major reason YOUR insurance coverage is rising in price and will rise most significantly in the next several years. The problem is that Obama is just not fiscally astute. He thinks money for ordinary people grows on trees. I just don't think this is man really understands fiscal realities for ordinary people, spending far too much time hob-knobbing with the rich and powerful, who fill his cabinet aposts as close advisors. He deepens on them way too much. These guys will drive home from The White House after a 'tough day' at the
White House Bowling ally, I mean basketball court in their Maserati's Lamborghini's and Porche's and you are staring at a foreclosure notice. Obama cuts the taxes of his buddies and raises them on the poorest Americans.
I have said all along that this man is far too close to the corporations and business leaders of the large corporations to do the nation any good. Most people do not work in large corporations, contrary to the popular beliefs, but work in small and medium sized businesses of whom this administration has shown little real attention. Do you really want to create Jobs Mr. President, or just use it as a sounding board to make your rich friends richer? If you do, start paying real attention to the needs of the Mom and Pop businesses out there and the Small Business owner whom both parties consistently ignore.

Violent Seismic Activity Tearing Africa Apart - Spiegel
The fissures began appearing years ago. But in recent months, seismic activity has accelerated in northeastern Africa as the continent breaks apart in slow motion. Researchers say that lava in the region is consistent with magma normally seen on the sea floor -- and that water will ultimately cover the desert.(end excerpt)
This is most interesting and a rather ominous development. I talked somewhat about this in my old Earth Chagnes blog which is no more, but God willing, will return one day soon. The above linked article tells us that the sea could flood the desert very quickly, rapidly changing the geography of Africa.
A few years ago, the LORD gave me a very strange vision of Africa. After he gave it to me, he compelled me to post it. I do not generally like to post my visions or words from the Lord but from time to time, he makes it clear that I must. This was one of them. Don't take the graphic representations as being too exact, mostly what I wanted to make clear is that Africa was divided and one could get across Africa (east to west) via water. I know many of my readers thought I was 'off' but what can I tell you? Usually the things that God is about to do are not anything what we think and the words that he has to give to people are not what they want to hear.
God is moving and just because you hear a word today and it is not fulfilled in 24 hours does not mean the word is not from God. God's timetable is not our timetable. I exhort all who read this, get right with God and his son Christ Jesus. These are the end times and God is calling men everywhere to repent of their evils and embrace God's love and utterly reject satan's hate, lies and evil.
While it is always interesting to talk about the scientific data and theories about Earth Changes, Christ and his Apostles clearly and repeatedly warned his followers of these things and how they would increase in the days just before the Lord's return. That man would become more and more evil and corrupt and the Church would begin to fall away.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
All of these things are slowly but surely coming upon the earth. While our scientific community likes to us the term 'Global Warming' to apply to the unusual events on earth such as from Acrtic-like winters on the east coast, their science has been shown to anyone with any honesty to be, by and large, a major hoax. That does not mean there are not major changes taking place and what is happening in Africa (in Spiegel story) is, I think, just one of the 'birth pangs' of tribulation that the earth will feel at close and closer intervals as the years pass.
I always find it amazing how when all of these things are happening just as the Bible said they would (wars and rumors of wars, tumults, increase in earthquakes, floods, famines, strange new diseases), people go deeper and deeper into denial. It is as though some dark and evil entity has told then, as the comedian once said, "who are you going to believe... me, or your lying eyes"? The people decide to ignore the optical input in favor of the seductive voice of denial. The seducer knowing that love of sex, drugs, money, power, filth, lies, treachery, murder an theft will always be a powerful pull away from a humble acknowledgment of God, so people are drawn into the circle of satan, simply by closing their eyes to God's truth, and listening to the seductive voice of evil. The more events prove the Scriptures true, the more people live in denial.
I am saddened to say that as the days pass, that a new form of 'denial' will evidence itself for what it really is in a great many people. Not a denial of God's truth and existence, but an out-and-out hatred of him and anything good. Those of you who read the last PESR and read the section on Atheists may understand what I am saying here, because many so-called athiests are not atheists, they are anti-theists or are against God and against you or anyone else believing in him. This is merely a re-marketing term for what satanim has always been about. This is why we have seen such a campaign against God waged in many cites of late, with competing billboards in many cities. We are not talking about reasoned debate or tolerance we are talking about something that will eventually manifest itself as religious intolerance and start moving Christians (in particular) out their jobs (such as medicine or in government) because they are not secularists/anti-theists. Many will say that day is far away and I tell them it is not. Christian doctors who refuse to perform abortions may soon find that getting a job is very, very difficult. Compulsory murder? What kind of evil man and society would even consider such wickedness? One under the thumb of satan, the who was a murderer from the beginning. Folks do not understand this. Even Christ has a hard time getting the most religious and educated among his people to understand it.
Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
So while we can talk all day about the scientific reasons for the massive changes in the earth there are overriding spiritual ones, first is man's wickedness, the second is the judgment of God, which will come, all denials to the contrary notwithstanding and finally and most importantly, the return of Jesus Christ who will be an utter terror to those who have done and loved evil. Christ came the first time as a lamb, the second time he will come as a lion. On the day of God's wrath, you can forget about those touching 'Jesus Loves Me' bedtime stories, God and his Son Jesus Christ will literally be out for blood against those who have shed innocent blood, ran down the poor, lied for illicit gain, stole when it was in their power to do so and reveled in their evil because they did not think they would have to give account. Such will be put onto a bed of tribulation.
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.
Look for many for changes in the Earths weather, geography as the our planet undergoes the birthpangs that will lead us to the return of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Iran Censoring Tor Networds
An interesting development and one that by no means should be ignored. Censorship is usually a sign or a dying regime and Iran, with all of its assets (large number of educated youth, lots of natural resources), looks to be just that. Maybe one day more intelligenct and enlightened leadership can take the reigns of the state.
A note on Tor. These days there are no good privacy options. None. I don't care if you find some obscure little service in Swizterland, Argentina or the Ukraine. Internet privacy is a target of all regimes everywhere, no matter what they may preach in public. All of your major privacy services are in somebody''s back pocket. All of them. It may be the US, it may be the Brits, it may be the Israeli's or the Russians, don't discount the Chinese, Swedes or the Taiwanese. All have bee busy to varying degrees creating, buying or otherwise subverting internet privacy services. Now in the US it is a little different. The Patriot act and other laws now make real privacy and anonymity service essentially a crime. Even those who claim to have multi-jurisdictional services are under the thumb of the Justice Department. If you do any business in the US or have any officers who are located in the US they have legal ways of forcing you to open up your service for their clandestine scrutiny... and they do it, all the time. Those who have been subverted are not allowed (by law) to tell you, and wouldn't anyway as it would kill their business. "By the way the US Justice department is logging and examing all of our user data and traffic here at XYZ privacy service in a secret warrant that never expires." Who would pay for that?
Tor is quite different though on many fronts. First and most importantly it is decentralized and therefore there is no centralized place to gather logs or apply a warrant. This makes it ideal (theoretically) for private surfing. It is good for those in nations who are under threat or under censorship. Many activists in closed societies depend on Tor to get the word out about what is happening in their nations. It is also good for folks who just don't want their ISP's or the Corporations who control so much of the Internet's infrastcuture (and who do spy on us both for profit and the US government) knowing where we surf.
But there are problems with Tor, most of the vulnerabilities are clearly spelled out on their site. The biggest threat, though is one that is not talked about. It is the growing number of relay and exit servers that are now owned and operated by one technology company (I will not name) who has made it one of its major goals to break VPN's in order to spy on people, both for the profitability of their advertising networks and to gather personal profiles of those who use VPN's. This company is expending a great deal of money and has employed some highly sophisticated techniques in following traffic all through the Tor network. In short and to put it bluntly, for the most part, Tor is no longer private, but part of a network of servers who are there to gather information on people.
I do not want to even hint that the folks at EFF are in any way part of this or approve or are even aware of it. These are some good folks for the most part who sincerely try to do their best with very limited resources in providing privacy to people. I need not tell you that terrorists and pedophiles do abuse Tor and most privacy services.
I think the only way for the folks at EFF to defeat, or at least minimize the effect of this internal subversion of the network is to consider multiplexing or paying trusted parties to run trusted servers and then rating servers in the network based on a security rating. I know... more work, more money and one cannot be 100% certain that the new system could not be subverted.
But in an age of corporate espionage, it cannot be discounted that this corporation would not sell out the names of activists, whistelblowers or others who use the network for a price or access to some closed or censored societies markets or in response to some trumped up legal process here in the US. This is the threat to Tor based on what I know and see.
Do I use Tor? Sure, why not? The performance is not bad, and can keep 95% of the spys on the web from knowing where I surf and am not giving my IP to sites I am not sure about, so yes, I use it.
But always with what I just told you in mind.

After Hu Visit, China's Banks Come To US - NYT
First the Communist owned COmmercial Bank of China bought a controlling interest in the the US portion of the Bank of East Asia. This would be the frist time a US bank is allowed to be owned by the Chinese. I told my readers a year ago that very quiet negotiations were going on to sell major stakes of US banks to China. This is just the first step of many in the long road to the complete Sinoization of America.
Now the last thing I want to do is sound like a Sino-phobe. I like China and the Chinese people. I have nothing at all against them. Indeed, stories from those who have just recently traveled to China tell me that there are a lot more Christians in China than we are being told, a whole lot more. Second, I cannot blame the Chinese for wanting more access to the US and her markets. If I were Chinese, I would want it too. But our position (the US) in this relationship is one of weakness. If we are selling our banks to China, it is primarily because they own our debt and are demanding the ability to buy things inside the US that generate revenue with those reserves. So there is no 'phobia' here, just a hard look at the realities not the pollyanna-ism and slick PR jobs that those who are selling us out are feeding the Average American couch potato. China will own us one day soon, lock stock and barrel. Cities and States who declare bankruptcy (if Congress passes such a law) will be the target of China in order to purchase all that wonderful infrastructure that can generate revenue. You don't think the Chamber of Commerce, who takes all this money from foreigners or the Business Roundtable, who do substantial business in China are not lobbying for the Dragon in exchange for more access to China's markets for their private enterprises? Why not? If Americans are dumb enough to let their state and local governments go bankrupt and lack the fiscal acumen and disipline to deal in fiscal realities, maybe the Chinese can do better. I mean, American political and economic leadership can hardly be something to be proud of, we have made a real mess of things and someone else will have to clean it up. Our leaders in the Congress, White House and the Courts are just not dealing in reality. They are dealing in personal profit...
...at your expense.

The Boondoggle That Wouldn't Die - ABC
The JSF Engine is one that Gates does not want but no one can kill. The nation does not need it, but we are spending a kings randsom on it anyway. Here the blame does not lie with the administration but firmly with the Congress. The GOP, making all kinds of noises about cutting the budget and weeping those crocodie tears about how much money Obama spends, won't kill this lucrative rat-hole.
But despite all of the hatred you hear about the Tea Party, they appear to be serious about some cuts in the DOD.
These days the President seems to want to make at least some real cuts. Gates proposed 78 billion in real cuts and Obama says he wants another 42 billion, not a bad start but it is only a very small first step (cuts are spread over many years) in the kinds of real reductions the nation needs if we want to avert a fiscal disaster. It is not clear if these cuts are actual reductions or just reductions in projected increases on future Defense budgets that hold the line (or still have slight increases) in real spending. This is not an academic distinction, not with our deficits.
My guess is that these cuts will be loudly touted (though they will have very limited effect on the overall budget), in order to quell criticism over the coming cuts to Medicare and Social Security, which I suspect will be on the front burner whoever is President in 2013. I do not think anyone will touch this 'third rail' until after the next elections. What kind of cuts do I envision? Raising the retirement age, and putting an income cap (probably $250k/yr) on who can receive benefits or at least how much they can get. Medicare? Who knows but reduced benefits for seniors seem inevitable. This is the major failing of Obamacare because there are no savings, not really. All of theose folks who think they are going to get covered with Obamacare must rely on the states to pony up most of the money. If you read the past PESR you know that many states are barely in a position to pay the janitor in the capital building, let along hundreds of thousands of new folks on state insurance rolls.
In addition there will be a clamor for more assistance for health care as ordinary folks see their premiums rise by leaps and bounds over the next couple of years. Obamacare will be more unpopular as the economic pain of its polices begin to set in. I think the fight over Obamacare has only just begun. The Democrats want to keep it the way it is, costing everyone more, the GOP wants to undo what little good it does for ordinary folks in favor of even more profits for the industry's titans. Whatever comes out of this Congress, the American people will lose, but won't realize it until after 2014.
For now no one is really serious about our debts. But an artiifical crisis over the debt ceiling may be the medicine the nation needs.

A great way to stiff retirees and the holders of muni bonds. These guys open their mouth and make it more difficult (and expensive) for states to issue bonds. One of the reasons investors put their money in muni's is because the states cannot go bankrupt. Last week, $2.3 Billion in Municipal bonds were withdrawn because of this threat, 25 billion in the last 9 weeks. Do this and who is going to lend to states? This is just more crackpot economics from Newt, the guy who shipped American industrial power to China. Pundits are touting GM and its restructuring as some model for success. Well who bought a sizable potion of GM after this 'successful' bankruptcy? China! Is this success, shipping jobs to China after transferring ownership of the company to China? Will we sell our water, roads, bridges, hospitals and capital buildings and other infrastructure to China in massive bankruptcy auctions for pennies on the dollar? Folks Chapter 9 bankruptcy is what is being discussed which means selling your assets to pay debts. Is that what Newt is proposing? Is this a recipe for success? Yes, it is, if you and your financial backers are really working for foreign governments as it appears a growing number of key GOP backers are. It looks to me that Benedict Arnold traded in the Union Jack for a GOP elephant.

Bill To Cut Planned Parenthood Funding Circulates In US House
How taxpayer funds can be used to take life on a mass scale and to fund an organization that literally had the complete blessing and joined hands with Adolph Hitler because it targeted blacks is beyond me. The saddest part is that so many Black women walk into these clinics willingly to destroy their own offspring. It shows a deep spiritual malaise (the spirit of murder is satanic) over Black America coupled with a crippling mental dysfunction that still does not want to understand just where Black America, as a people is heading and who the powers really are who are helping it along. I can tell you this, brethern in Christ of all races, We as a people will NOT get to the promised land with the blood of the innocents on our hands.
That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them. Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house.
Today, materialism and 'self' have become the new idols we sacrifice our children to. These are the new gods of America and the west and millions of children have been sacrifed on its altar.

Remember I told you of a new Generation of 'Black' leaders whose home is in the 'house'? More here. This shameless man defames a martyred man of peace to support a vile policy of war. This is just plain wrong on MLK's birthday. This is akin to someone finding a Jew to say Hitler was a kind and gentle man on Holocaust remembrance day. The Jewish community would be correctly enraged. Those who are bent on killing must always find some lie to tell to justify their pursuit of it. Dr. King was a man whose whole life personified the words 'non-violence'. He worked tirelessly to bring rights and dignity to those whom society mistreated and often killed. To use his name in support of our wars when he spoke so clearly and eloquently against them is reprehensible.

Treasury: Fed Deficit Exploding
Washington's and voting America's refusal to deal in reality places them both in the category of the insane. While I can't make aclinical diagnosis a simple definition of "the inability to deal with reality" will here suffice as our definition of 'insanity'. We can talk all day about mentally ill shooters in Arizona. Sure, it looks like the guy may have been seriously disturbed but he at least appears to have a clinical excuse for it (I will not denigrate those who have bonafide medical conditions like his, it isn't fair to him or his family). But think about it... what the heck is this going on in Washington and in the ballot box? Can you envision the pain and chaos that is coming to America when she defaults on her debts? You don't think there won't be some shooting at the local grocery store when Anita Antidepessant and Carl Cokehead as well as other people can't get food for weeks on end because the Gov't checks stop, the banks are closed and folks are hungry? Can you conceptualize what it means to have your bank closed for weeks on end, retireess not getting paid and our energy suppliers telling us they will be happy to sell us oil if we pay them in something that is worth something? They will politely but firmly tell us to leave the green Charmin at home, they have plenty of it in the Royal palace.
A sane person/nation would seriously address these issues with gravity and fairness; an insane one would give massive budget-busting tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans, continue spending increases to a defense industry that already dwarfs the rest of the world combined in spending and then try politicize the whole deficit debate with fictitious cuts loudly proclaimed in the MSM. I cannot stress this enough, this day of reckoning is not decades away, it may not even be years away. But Obama and the Democratic Lame Duck session of Congress (who gave tax breaks to the rich) just took the debt car from 100 to 120 MPH, headed straight for the cliff. Americans do not understand just how serious this is because the MSM is not telling them. They have been paid to go to sleep on this issue while doing their part of the 'bargain' (back room deal) in seeing to it those cuts came about by loudly proclaiming all kinds of positive economic news and polls. All the while they are hiding all of the really bad stuff to give the guy who campaigned against those very same cuts (and after he was elected) and turned 180 degrees and advocated them, a major boost in the polls. It looks to these well trained eyes, that Obama sold you out for a temporary boost in the polls to counter his election disaster. With this guy image is everything. I mean what kind of man puts up scores of mirrors in the White House so that he can 'look at the First African American President'? Look at our last President, here is guy who constantly talked to himself. Look I am no clinical psychologist, but I don't need to be one to say there is clearly something amiss with a nation that puts men like that at the pinnacle of power with their finger on the 'button'. Our media assists and abets this aversion to reality by not telling folks the whole truth but just enough to support this or that political constituency or policy. Listen folks, I don't blame Bush or Obama for America's troubles, I really don't. More than anything, I pity them insofar as this nation can no longer be governed by the sane. To lead America, one must study and adopt the lessons from the annals of insanity (with the non-reality supplementary volumes) to govern this perverse nation. Bush and Obama are merely symptoms of a much deeper problem in America. That problem being a deep almost pathological aversion to deal with reality. Look at the numbers of Americans who use drugs (legal and illegal ) to remove themselves from reality? The numbers are truly 'insane'. The sad part is that when reality comes home to stay, it will eventually manifest itself with deep and probably violent social chaos.
The recent election results though should give any sane American reason to doubt these new polling fictions and the next PESR will show you why things are much worse in the US economy than we are being told. But an image boost is Obama's reward for his political treachery and budgetary insanity. The Neocons love this guy, he does their dirty work and the Democrats get the blame. They can sit back and funnel money into the coffers of the GOP and prepare the vote machines for 2012. I am here to tell you, that is where the cash is flowing for 2012. Laugh now... go ahead, but a Palin Presidency is going to be the (fully intended) result of Obama's Presidency. Forget what the paid spinmeisters say, forget the wishful thinking out there in lefty-land and follow the money and the movers and shakers who really control American politics. It isn't going to matter how much of the nation really votes. The 'machine' is already counting the votes in key counties when the ballots haven't even been printed. I think a Palin Presidency will be a disater of equal proportions to the last two years of Obama's. War without end, debts to the ceiling, abortion on demand, crumbling cities, bailouts for the rich, no-bid contracts, tax increases for the poor, cuts in food stamps and a deliberate policy of downplaying the NarcoWar in Mexico and the cash that has made its way into the US political system. I mean really... to those on the left, what are you really afraid of? Is it just that the first woman President is not likely to be a Democrat? Everyone gets whipped up into these political frenzies but no one really looks at the substance behind the rhetoric. Little will change because Modern Presidents don't really have much power. They are merely a fulcrum for power for interests who pay the campaign bills. So get over it, nothing will really change. Liberals (who just about lost their minds in votefraud 2000) went to sleep on the last vote fraud (in 2010) because they thought fraud benefited them. It didn't. Reid is and always has been a Torjan Horse GOPer, who now still controls the Senate, handing out tax breaks to the rich. Obama's top donors are fed up with this guy and the money men who controls the machine smile with glee. Obama? I suspect the dirt they have been using against him (to force him to do NeoCon bidding) may surface in 2012 and will cause a lot of folks to shrink away from him in shame for ever having been hoodwinked by him in the first place. Ever wonder why Obama no longer has a license to practice law after being a Constitutional Law Professor at Harvard?

For you in Christ, I can only beseech you, beg you not to join those who cannot and refuse to deal with reality and truth.

Do what you can to protect yourselves and families and never engage in any act of violence. THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME. Don't jepordize your place in Christ in a fit of misdirected rage at those who probably don't know what they are doing anyway. They are not worth it. What is coming to America is just going to have to play itself out all the way to the end.

Stay On The Path
In these times it behooves us who name the name of the Lord to seriously consider and do this one all important thing: Stay on the path to life and to not depart from it. In no wise get off of that narrow road that leads to life eternal brethren. There are two major ways one gets off the path. Either by deceit or by rebellion. Each can lead one off of the right path and onto the wrong one. This site is mostly here to help you so that you will not be deceived in these most dangerous times. There is not much I or anyone can do about rebellion other than to warn one as to what rebellion means in God's eyes.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Rebellion is just like witchcraft. Why? Because those who dabble in these dark arts are dealing exclusively with fallen angels, better known as devils. These are the ones who rebelled against God in the beginning. It is wise never to discount the power if evil or of witchcraft. They have real power and those who serve these dark forces know it and strive to keep their secrets to themselves. They have fallen in with powerful forces who are aligned against the God of all things. These are the rebels against the creator.
Yet because sin is so deeply ingrained in the hearts of men (sin being rebellion against God and his commandments) that we find that more often than not even those who follow after God will one day succumb to the spirit of the age, which is of in short the spirit of rebellion. It is the way of the 'free spirits' or the spirit of secularism, the spirit that says, there is no God. It is the rising spirit of this age that is encapsulated as one well known satanist put it, 'do as thou wilt'.
This essentially is the new religion being preached today. The only 'restraint' and differentiation in this morality is whether or not what one does (or does not do) serves the state or the elites broad definition of what serves society. Morality now has almost nothing to do with God (as it once strongly did in America) and now has everything to do with the State and those interests who control it. Having removed God from so much of society it is no wonder that the spirit of rebellion has set in.
But for individuals who wish to see life eternal, we must not let even the slightest whiff of rebellion enter our lives. We are commanded to do God's commandments. We must not be like those of old who once had the oracles of God and were removed out of the way because of repeated rebellion against the Creator.
For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death? Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.
Moses knew the hearts of the people, and I assure you that Christ knows the hearts of his. He has given us all ample warning of the price for rebellion. So I counsel all of you to remain in the way and not let rebellion cause you to depart from it.
In these times, though deception is also the other far more subtle way that one can be moved off of the path that leads to life. It is, in my estimation a greater threat than out and out rebellion because these times are incredibly deceptive. Religious leaders and organizations that profess Christianity have been thoroughly infiltrated by occultists, Freemasons, Jesuits (men who deceitfully claim to be one thing but are not and are liars), apostates, the unrepentantly sexually deviant; these are men who lead others into deceit to be followed closely by rebellion against the express commandments of Christ. Not only that but the new rising religion of secularism (with the evangelists of 'militant secularism' laying the groundwork) is most seductive to those who have never known Christ, and have been subjected to decades of negative propaganda about Christians in the media and especially modern mass entertainment. Every crime (and there have been many) is told in lavish detail, blown out of all proportion, every hypocrisy dutifully exploited and where there is none, they will surely make it up. I Remember watching the Showtime special on the Tudors, a lavish (and very, very racy and sexually explicit production and I do not recommend for Christians) four season mini-series that showed the reign of Henry the VIII. While the acting was good and much the the history was correct, they did take liberties that seemed expressly designed to cast the worst possible light on what was going on back then for the express purpose of denigrating Christians. Now I know a good deal about the history of that period having read some books on it and know that it was a bloody period where men used the excuse of religion to amalgamate power for themselves, kill and even burn their enemies, all in the name of God. But the series seemed intent on pushing forth modern propaganda by slandering men of those days, like Thomas Tallis, a great composer from that period who wrote many chants and was quite popular in his day. They turned him into some moonstruck homosexual who composed religious music. Why? Why slander the dead? To put forward the propaganda of Christian 'hypocrisy' to assist in the propaganda for the proposes of legitimizing homosexuality. Nine out of ten viewers would never pick up on it, but would internalize this propaganda and add it to a long litany of real, overblown and imaginary errors of Christians the Christian Church they see in modern movies, television shows, comedy channels and news.
This propaganda is extremely effective because it reinforces years of careful media attention on any and all the failings of people who are Christians and uses it to cast dirt on the gospel of Jesus Christ and his followers, of whom NONE is perfect. This form of deceit is most prevalent in our world today and people are being deliberately given a false impression of what Christianity is not just by the Media and the epicureans in Hollywood and increasingly the UK's film industry, but by false christian leaders who have been sent do to a job against the Church, cause division, dissension and trouble in order to break the power of Christianity over the western world. It behooves us all who love our Lord to understand what is happening and why so that we are not unaware of the wiles of the enemy. If satan can slide Judas into the Lord's presence to betray, he can do the same things and much more to ordinary men of the Church in these troubled times, where men of vile character slither into Church to do the devils bidding.
Brethern, these things must all play out so that those who choose evil will have no excuse. They will not just be held accountable for what they proposed to do, but for what they actually did against God and his saints. This is why Judas was allowed to actually carry out his horrible crime against Christ.
The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.
But from Christ words we can understand the Judas was never really saved, he was just the first traitor in the Church. He is just one in a long line of satanic infamy that is bearing its demonic fruit in these very last days. This is why it is imperative that we understand the word of God, store its commandments in our hears, listen carefully to the Holy Spirit and go where he tells us to go, do what he tells us to do, no matter what. He sees what we cannot not and knows the future which we cannot see. It is a simple matter of trust and faith, to remain in the path God has set before us, or to follow our own ways and suffer for it.
God knows what he is doing. It is man that is lost. One look at man's inhumanity to man the cruelty, crime, torture, wars, ignorance and hate should show anyone that it is man, not God that is the problem. Men rise up to kill one another, make their own bloodbaths, and then have the temerity to shake their fist at God and blame him for the evil that they themselves do; willingly, happily and unrepentantly.
God shows those who will listen a better way, but it is a way we must be determined to walk in through thick and thin, good times and bad with a determination that is based on faith and love, knowing that God loves those who trust in him. Those who know him (really know him) know this for he has manifested himself to them in a real and deeply personal way. In short they know him not for some overbearing tyrant as some would portray him, but as a loving father who cares so deeply for his children that he has made a very high sacrifice for his friends just for the joy of their fellowship and the return of that love. God loves his people, and because he loves us, exhorts us to remain in the path that leads to life.
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: 'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown'. And he replied: 'Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.'
- Minnie Louise Haskins (1875 – 1957)

The growing mental instability of millions of Americans and the drugs that make them so should be a front burner issue, but no one is talking about it and no one will unless they want to see millions in campaign donations dry up.

This 'lone nut' just seems like the perfect patsy to stir up trouble and further dividing and already divided America. Now who in the world would want to do that? Are there people really so evil as to stage something like this? I hate to tell you that there some that are far more evil than literally most Americans can imagine. They have no compunction in killing to get their point, message or political objective across and political 'left and right' are just tools in their hands to help them in doing what they need to do. So let us not jump to any conclusions until we get all the facts (not rumor) and find out who this guy was with when he arrived at the scene. Mental illness? Conspiracy? I do not know but please don't let yourself be manipulated with a manufactured political furor before we know (not just surmise) much, much more. Thankfully, lawmakers are calling for cooling of political rhetoric.

The proof will be when we see States and local governments see significant rises in tax revenues. I am just a little suspicious of statistics, gathered by corporations or the government. I say, show me the money. If people really are working we will see a rise in tax revenues. If they can't show us the money, we are being bamboozled.

California Supreme Court Approves Warrantless Data Seizure
This is why top folks in corporations should never carry any electronic devices on them (and never trust Mircosoft's fake encryption to protect your data, MS provides a way to get in). All it takes is one crooked cop who takes a bribe from a competitor and some of the most sensitive corporate data could wind up who knows where. Corporate Espionage is a very, very real thing and as the word espionage entails; bribes, blackmaiil, theft are all routinely employed to gain access to competitor data. Let me digress here for a moment and tell you a story. There is a guy I know who is a high ranking Federal Officer. He has some powerful enemies inside the US government. Enemies who are in reality spies for foreign powers and others 'transnational interests' who move money for foreign governments for political campaigns. One day while driving home, he was pulled over by a county policeman, harassed arrested and detained in a rather strange 'police' facility. Others as well, who had offended these powerful politicians were also imprisoned. When released, this federal agent found out that 1) the cop, his car, and badge number were all fake and the place he was held was not a police station. He was detained for political reasons, quite illegally right here in America. This story is given to you so you know that there are 'police' and there are police and a cop posing as cops can and do steal, sell and move things for criminal gangs and foreign governments. This is what they did to a very well placed and connected Federal Official, what do you think they would do to you? "A body was found washed up in the Hudson river today believed to be that of a Corporate Information Officer for XYZ corporations. Authorities are still trying to discover...". You get the drift. What this court has done is provide new 'income opportunities' to California's Police.
Finally, I do not want to say that providing tools to for forensic police work is not a good idea, it is, if you don't believe me, check this out.

Gates To Outline 100 Billion In Defense Cuts
Missing from this story? The simple fact that these cuts will not reduce the deficit one penny. These are 'internal cuts' desigend to reroute the money elsewhere in the DOD. While the cuts may be real, its budgetary effect (mentioned loud and clear in all major publications as being the reason for the 'cuts') is zilch, yet Reuters carefully omits this all important fact. In fact, planned defense spending is still set to increase next year by 1% over inflation. This whole budgetary exercise is a 'tactical deception' designed to keep overall defense spending high while giving you the false impression it is going to help the deficit. One must wonder; Has the DOD been given the authority to have clandestine ownership of Major News organizations to peddle its propaganda? Any proof of this would be found in its 'News Reporting' in glaring omissions designed to support continued massive (bigger than the rest of the world combined) defense spending, via the common rules of propaganda. Key ommissions in reporting is one of those tools. So far, since the last election we have had a tax cut for the rich, a tax increase for the poor and a rise in Defense spending, a new face from JPMorgan set to Join the Obama Camp, as well as a face from the failed Lehman Brothers. More 'hard work' and 'victories' like that and the GOP will have both chambers and the White House in 2012.

Remember, this is all brought to you by the Democrats who still are in command of both chambers and are unrepentant about what they did the past two years and after taking one of the most serious beatings in history in the last election. Obama is trying to blame the Republicans for his tax bill, but they are not in control, the Democrats still are for a few more weeks.

Putin Orders Federal Government Towards Linux-GNU Software
Sadly Linux has many of the spyware features of other Operating systems. All brought to you by the NSA. Somehow, I am pretty sure somebody 'got to' Linus Torvalds and other key Linux developers, the guys who actually decides what gets into the kernal and what does not. Indeed some distro's no longer provide source code as required. I do not want to sound too conspiratorial, as many of the NSA's efforts have really secured Linux quite significantly. Nevertheless, if you think the other part of the NSA's 'espionage' mission is missing from the Kernel, you are deceiving yourself. Beware of the new 'secure' OpenSSL libraries (I hinted at this long ago, finally somebody has caught on that the old SSL vulnerability issue was mostly a scam to force folks to download this even more vulnerable one.) and beware any OS that will not let you completely turn off IPv6. IPv6 is NSA's baby and wet dream and they are doing what they can to get people to use it. What the Government can do with it is very scary indeed. The only OS that lets you do that is XP. I think it wise to tell you this much as well. Be most careful of new 'trends in technology'. Cloud computing (that allows data-mining without warrant) is one example of the governments sly use of its very powerful place in molding technological trends. Often that power is used against ordinary folks, to the advantage of the government and the major corporations who steal your data and sell it. Beware the 'big push' for this or that upgrade or patch. Beware of 'forced' upgrades and updates without your permission and knowledge. Me? All Microsoft servers are blocked from my network and I cannot access them except via a secure tunnel, restricted from updates. Microsoft depends on your 'trust' to do what they do without your permission, my advise is (if you want to protect yourself from potential government spying) don't give it to them. But be aware, some updates are good and do secure your computer and not updating could leave you open to other threats. So you must decide to either 1) Update like 99% of trusting users 2) do not update or 3) check carefully what updates you need and which ones are suspect and proceed accordingly.
Obamacare: Barely Implemented, But Already Over-Budget And Under-serving
Number Of Uninsured Americans Skyrockets To Over 50 Million
The number of Americans without insurnce increased 400% in 2009. Are they ready for Obama's new "I'm too poor to afford Insurance' tax? I will say it if no one else will, Obamacare is a direct attack on the poorest Americans and will force them (in 2014) to make a choice between necessities and health insurance. Just like his tax deal which raised taxes on the poor, just like his desire to cut food stamps. Don't be fooled by that talk of Medicaid helping the poor, the State are in no fiscal position to afford to insure millions of more Americans, they are going broke, quickly, and some are not going to do it. Obama has declared war on the poor with his Executive pen, if not with his silvery tongue. The poor man does not have 500 Million dollars to pay for a Presidential campaing, so he feels free to attack them. So you think you are secure from his attacks, making $60k in a still vibrant community driving your Lexus to work everyday? In the the next PESR will show you why you are living in a fools paradise and you too, may soon be joining the criminaly uninsured. Brothers, I will advocate as much as I can for the poor man, those who are on the bottom of the economic ladder, and if others want to forget about them, I never will. God looks out for the poor and becomes a sure enemy of any and all who mistreats them.
For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.
Military Power Eluding China
We will be talking about this in the next PESR, though not at length. This January issue is in progress and probably won't be done until early Feb. Suffice it to say that in raw terms of numbers and firepower, China is not a superpower. But China is not striving for that kind of military superiority with the same vigor as she is pursuing it in assymetrical and unrestricted warfare where she is has the distinct advantage on the world stage. Winning a ground, air or naval war was never her real goal. She has discovered a new way to actieve her political objectives. So as usual, this politically timed announcement just after Start treaty ratification by a Russian think tank (Russia's Center for Analysis of Strategic Technologies) getting play in the Washington Post, the first place the the US puts forth its foreign policy intentions in the Press, is most suspect.

Apple Gets Creepier And Creepier...
Obama Wins, Middle Class Loses
A decent piece of journalism. Obama is touting these 'big wins' in a lame ducks session of Congress, but as the author states, extending Bush's tax cuts for the rich (and raising them on the poor) is hardly 'change', it is merely the status-quo gone wild. Obama has merely codified the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer and calling it 'victory'.
Obama Is Not Spineless, He's Conservative
A very good article that sums up Obama quite well. But I personally would not even call Obama Conservative, because there are a few good things about Conservatism. I see none in Barak Hussein Obama. Hear me out, Black, White, Latino and Asian Americans. A new breed of Uncle Tom black (small b) leaders is emerging whose job it is to make Black America poorer, stupider (poorly educated and lacking critical thinking skills), mentally ill and finally mold him into a prison laborer who works for 35 cents an hour... before taxes to help corporations compete in the new global economy. These are Corporate America's "house negro's", men like Barak Obama. They want to mold Black America into a creature who is so poor, economically desperate, spiritually apostate living contrary to nature and stupid and can only smile and shuffle his feet anytime a rich fat cat walks by, ready to take orders. He will bob his empty head in agreement to everything he says. 'Yassuh boss' is the mantra of these new black leaders whose words are spoken with the accompanying sound of shuffling feet. Well, the God who freed Black America is more than capable of putting those shackles right back on Black America... and throwing away the key. The sad part is that when the GOP wins the White House in 2012, I look for serious moves to do just that. So my word to Black America is you had better wake up quick, because it may already be too late to prevent this fate. I know this sounds offensive to a lot of folks, but somebody has to say something and since an enforced collective blindness coupled with a kind of 'peer pressure' that enforces silence on these key issues has crept over Black America, I will say it, even and especially if I hurt some feelings and lose a little traffic in the process. I am not trying to be popular or loved. You will want to keep this in mind as well readers of all races and backgrounds:

What Kind Of Freaks Will Feel Up Your Kids This Holiday Season?
satan himself could not be more pleassed at what America has become. I told you that those Child Pornographers were lining up like crazy for TSA jobs and that is not a rumor or myth. Federal Service is becoming a magnet for degenerates of every stripe. We are on the fast track to Sodom. How many were saved back then out of two fully populated cities? Brethern, be like Abram (Abraham) who would not take so much as a shoelace from the king of Sodom (Genesis 14:22ff). This system is going to come under a devastating judgment sooner, rather than later and like those days, only an extremely small number of Americans will be saved from God's wrath. The small flock, the tiny handful that actually obey God's word.
Sodomy Becomes Official Military Policy
Brethern, time is running out for our once great nation, be sure you are where God wants you to be as this is not the time to be out of God's will or plan for you. I say again, time is quickly running out, my brethren in Christ. America's rebellion against the Creator is almost complete. Read your history. The 21st Century Kirchen Kampf is almost done. It is far more sublime and subtle but just as real. America is on the road to the same 'scientific state' of yesteryear and not 1 American out of a thousand really understand that much of what is happening is merely a mirror of what happened before. It all sounds good to us Americans, it did to the Germans too... at least at first. Gestapo? We are building it here now in Americka. America is slowly going under the swasticka and 99% of the people either don't know, or don't care. They will, when they start rounding up folks to go to their deaths for no crime at all. From Mao's China, to Stalin's Russia to Hitlers Germany, this is always the end result because there is a spiritual force behind it. Each of these states were rabidly anti-Christ and Athiestic and saw man as a 'cosmic accident'. They were the foruunners of today's 'scientific state'. Then came the Genocide, usually within their own nations/occupied territories. Let all who read this pause and consider what this and past administrations are doing, for they are really only front men for what can best be described as the Underground Reich. The sad part is that men like Obama probably did not know who he was really working for until he spent about 3 months in office. Now he does their bidding... or else. Bush was pretty much the same way, despite what you hear on the net about the Bush family's Nazi ties. So I say this to all of you: You want to flip God off? That is your affair, but when these guys start doing their evil and there is no one to stop them, God will remember that defiant and arrogant 'finger' and leave you to your fate.
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

Indiscriminate targeting and killing of civilians? The very definition of terrorism. But as I said not long ago, these folks are target practice for Ratheons new 'WunderWaffen' that always finds its target with non-Aryans. How in the world does Robert Gates think he can win a war or counterinsurgency without making real attempts to win the hearts of the people? He can't and he has to know it. This is the most basic lesson of 'Counterinsurgency 101'. This war is lost and can no longer be won, what we have now is a contractors display-ground for all kinds of weapons that will be sold later to the most repressive nations on earth, for profit. Kill a Muslim, win a contract with some bloodthristy dictatorship. Sound too cynical for you? Well, our allies see it and are bolting on us, even our best allies are deserting us here. They can see this war is run by fools and psycopaths who seem to want this war to last forever. They have no plan to win, have never had a plan to win and God help anyone who shows them how to end this war. Because ending would end the billions in contracts key contractors and insiders are making from it. Congress, who appropriates the cash is in on it too.

If they are rich, white and crooked, Obama-Holder will never hold them accountable. Prison for the most part, is just for to poor White folks, Latino's and Blacks.
The Politics Of Genocide
This is a pretty good interview with the author of The Politics of Genocide. It talks about how the political powers behind the scenes define it and use it for their own twisted purposes. Discussed at length are Bill Clinton's role in the genocide of Rwanda and our role in Bosnia. Warning: These guys do not like Israel and put all of the blame for the troubles on Israel in a couple of snide remarks. Nevertheless, it is quite good and informative (48mb/50min/mp3)

The Vaticans Money Laundering Scandal
FYI, The Pope's recent visit to the UK? Reliable 'rumor' has it that a very, very large deposit was made there during the visit to avoid seizure of questionable funds and deeper scrutiny of its finances as a result of this investigation. This was, according to well placed sources, the primary reason for the visit. There are some major scandals brewing in the Vatican and some of the sources of its revenue may be so foul and evil that not even the most ardent Catholic could defend it. I know many Catholics think this is just the usual anti-catholic banter that we hear constantly, but I assure you that it isn't. Some very dark forces are operating in the Vatican. Let me rephrase that, the elements that run the Vatican could not be any darker. What will one day be revealed will shake the faith of millions of Christians, and provide all kinds of fodder for the enemies of the Gospel... by design. Christianity will be ridiculed the world over. My words to all Christians, Protestant and Catholic is this; never have blind faith in any person or human institution. Such faith is the first and last step on the path to hell.
How Both Parties Are Working To Make (Not Prevent) A Social Security Disaster
Tax Deal Raises Them On The Poor
This is one of the only MSM stories that actually tells you this. Poke around, the rest are providing favorable media coverage for the deal in the hopes it goes through, on the back of the poor man. There is a terrible divine curse on leaders who do this. Most of the stories in the MSM just don't mention the tax increase on poor Americans! This is not (I repeat NOT) an innocent oversight, they know that most Americans would not support such a move or at least would have second thoughts, so they hide that inconvienent fact from them. The bill also, oh by the way, raises the deficit by about $1 Trillion dollars. You could not find a more destructive financial package if the Congress were secretly working for a foreign power bent on our destruction.Read your history, things have become considerably worse since the recent Supreme Court decision. The good news is that some Black voices are starting to open their eyes slowly and reluctantly to see this President for what he is; a tool of the rich and the powerful against the poor. How did he pay for his health care bill? On the back of the poor man, how is he paying for tax cuts for the rich? The poor man. Is it any wonder his administration continues to fall in the polls?

This I know, two major technology firms recently got 'updated' price lists from China for access to essential materials to make their phones and tablet PC's. This is going to effect the price of consumer goods considerably as well as our Defense industry's access to these critical materials in their weapons systems, only driving defense budgets up even higher. That is, if the Chinese are even willing to sell them the materials in the first place.

In Short, The US Has No Case Against Assange
The good news? One of his accusers has fled to the Middle East and appears to no longer be cooperating with Police and the Judge hearing the case now wants to see some evidence in a new bail hearing. It's nice to see a judge who at least wants to make the appearance of being fair. In all fariness, the victims should indeed have their day in court on their Sex charge without American interference as well. If the charges are true, clearly Mr. Assange has some serious problems and needs either therapy or incarceration, depending on what can be proved in court, not insinuated by Journalists getting paid by the US to smear Assange. Additionally, Sweden may need to clean out their some of their LE/Judicial personnel who are operating under foreign 'influences' out. Since I do have readers who have worked in EU law enforcement (and often fill me in) I can tell you that from the beginning (the first 'rape' charge last summer) there was some very strange (illegal) things happening on the law enforcement side of things in this case that have not hit the news. This whole case stinks like a three day old fish sitting in the sun on a hot summers day.
US, Pakistan Under report Civilian Drone Casualties
I hate to break it to you, but these victims are little more than 'live fire' target practice for the Companies that make the Drones and who are using the 'success' in their weapons in killing people as a sales pitch to nations with deep pockets. A few dead Muslims are not going to get in the way of billions of dollars in new arms contracts. Now you know the real reason why the Drone strikes continue. Why do you think a Former Raytheon Executive is now our Ambassador to Saudi Arabia? Who do you think pushed for those arms Sales to one of the most repressive nations on earth and what Amnesty International calls a 'A Culture Of Brtuality'. It is especially bad news if one is a Christian Money and Oil is the key to US policy. 'Human Rights' are words America uses only when someone will not let us in their markets or runs counter to our corporate interests.

Obama-GOP Deal Cuts Taxes For the Rich, Raises Taxes On The Poor
Obama's polices as usual, target Black Americans who disproportionately make up so much of America's poor. For two years now I have called it as I see it about this man, much to the chagrin of the intellectually vacuous African American population (with some notable exception). The White Churches? They may not be in Obama's corner, but they sure are in the GOP's and both here have joined hands to rob the poor to give to the rich. God's word is clear about a nation who mistreats the poor as this nation, under President Obama seems quite eager to do. How in the world is a poor man making 35K a year going to be able to pay $23,342 for health care in 2020? Remember this, Obama's new Law forces the poor man to choose health care over food and shelter... by Law.
Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them. For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right. Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.
Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat? The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Nothing good can come from this man's public or SECRET polices, they are steeped in the same sins that have put America in the gravest peril. If I could tell you this man was evil perhaps it would explain things better, but he really isn't. He is just co-opted and has a very weak, vaccilating and self-centered personality and is most unsuited for the job he has. I am not trying to be unkind, just honest here. Can America take two more years of Obama? I am not sure it can without the following story coming to pass first. We will have to see. America has oppressed the poor man from Iraq to Afghanistan, Nicaragua, to Ecuador and does most of it secretly, bloodily and with plenty of 'plausible deniability'. Our hands are drenched in the blood of the poor man. The Chickens are going to come home to roost.
He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
America shall surely come to want if she continues to attack the poor, you have God's word on it.
DOD Prepares For Financial Collapse
For readers of Watson's Web, this is no surprise. I have warned of this crisis since early 2004 in a long and detailed series of papers 'The Coming Economic Depression'. I was laughed and mocked to scorn by the liars who now say fears of a general collapse are 'overblown' and was dismissed by many 'Christians' in general as a 'fear mongerer'. Some of these Churches have been forced to declare bankruptcy in the years following this economic crisis, they overborrowed, overspent and the sheep suddenly found the factory they worked at closed. I can only tell them and you, this site is not here for your entertainment. God's watchmen are there for a reason and you ignore them at your own peril, not theirs. If you slip-slide into poverty, want or even into hellfire, I will not be to blame, you were warned. Your failure to listen does not constitute failure on my part, but yours. Well, listen carefully: Not only are the chances for a future collapse of some kind not 'overblown' it is a virtual certainty and mathematically impossible to avoid at this point in time without impossible political choices the two party system will never make. A lot of readers out there are still not getting this and still are taking those MSM sleeping tablets. They operate their lives as though somehow Uncle Sam has a magic Genie that can make us rich. We don't and the few parlor game tricks we have used until now are quickly running out. I have done my best to warn you all, most of my readers have listened, but I wonder if they really have taken action in their own lives? So know this, one way or another this is coming and cannot be avoided. Delayed for a while, yes, but only for a while. Even without a major shock our fiscal imbalances are teminal. But another shock seems inevitable as banks Like BofA and Wells Fargo seem to be having real trouble. A decent article can be found here on these plans.

US Continues To Damage Its Own Reputation
Behind the curtain of all of this misuse and abuse of American power and western legal processes is President Obama who is a getting all kinds of praise from those on the far right of the political spectrum. Maybe he does plan on running in 2012... as a Republican! The result I think as the months pass is that a new issue will arise in the EU; that being the real value and ultimate price paid for continued 'good relations' with the US. I think it will become a political issue as well as a campaign one in the years ahead in Europe. No one likes to see its justice system subverted by a malevolent outside power. No one likes to find out their Chief Prosecutor is really an errand boy for the CIA. But this whole affair is so typically American; short term gratification outweighs long term interests. If we should have learned anything in places like Pakistan, is that you do not mess all over the people and expect them to sit still for it. EU rage will never take the form of terror and blind rage, but it will take the form of ballot box changes and new faces in the top job at places like Berlin, London and Stockholm. We are merely feeding into an already growing anti-American sentiment with these unwise and clearly hypocritical moves. This kind of short-term thinking is why our finances are crumbling before our eyes and finally after 9 years of 'instant gratification' revenge, we realize we are losing in Afghanistan. Brothers, America does not need enemies to destroy her, just let Americans keep on voting the same politicians in office over and over again, and in just a few years, any nation will be able to take us over without firing a shot. Why? We will have destroyed ourselves.
I think it not far fetched to see some of our intelligence sharing partners, who now are so scared of losing their sharing partnerships with the US to begin to see us as the primary threat, and look for security elsewhere. This is no small threat, let us remember that many in Europe blame the US for the financial crisis, and we are not talking about small nations either. The US is on a geopolitical slide and anyone who two eyes can see it. The EU may be waiting for a more friendly embrace from the old nemesis' of Russia and China and the US may find itself increasingly isolated in a world where economic power is wielded from Beijing and much of Europe's security needs could be met by Russia as her energy needs already are. It is a question of economics, security and common values, in that order. America is a waning power and has done enormous damage to her partners by often brow beating them into submission. The growing desertion of our partners in Afghanistan is a sign of things to come. No, a change is in the wind and is being hastened by Americans short sighted leaders who are playing up to the CNN camera's. There is a saying, 'you don't poop where you eat' and American power has rested in Europe for a long time with very close economic and security relationships. I think we just took one of our last 'dumps' on Europe. America's 'rouge nation' policies need to stop or I see the changes and shifts in the Global economic and security environment accelerating away from the US.
How do I see this from a biblical perspectice? America is being evidenced for what she really is. What does the Bible teach about Instant Gratification? The incident of Jacob and Esau is a good guide. (See Genesis 25:29-34) Indeed, what does it teach about bearing false witness, as it increasingly look like is the case with Wikileaks.
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. - Prov 6:16-19
Read that verse and tell me if this country does not commit them all with unrepentant, reckless abandon.
Obama Headed For Failed Presidency
FYI, notice that for now the WP is still free, the NYT has gone behind a sign in firewall. Well the WP is probably next. You know about the WSJ already. Just thought I would let you know that the best place for english speaking news is going to be overseas, US news outlets are in trouble financially and can no longer afford to give news away for free. I wish I could tell you this was a 'totalitarian' decision, but it isn't. It is go pay or go bankrupt for many. They have decided to go pay. Germany, England, the Nordic Nations, even english versions of Asian papers are going to be where the non-rich get their news in 2011.

Do You Read eBooks? What You Need To Know
After Amazon.com's digital book burning of Wikileaks, you should be aware of who is looking over your shoulder. For years and years Amazon.com was unprofitable and yet somehow somebody kept backfilling their coffers. Not that I am paranoid in a care free, happy-go-lucky, naked body scanner, Gitmo-torture, Muslim killing drone-war country like Amerika, but man... just think of all the info that could be gathered on the unsuspecting book buyer. Look, I am just saying to all who are not asleep, be most careful who you give any information to. You just don't know who they really are or who is storing all of that info and how it may/will be used against you at some date in the future. Does/can the DHS scan your book purchases for possible anti-government and 'terrorist' proclivities? Who is the largest book seller on earth? You do the math. Me? I will buy what I want to and will not be frightened into cowaring before the rising Reich. But YOU should know the risk of buying any book or documentary that may not be 'government approved' on any major corporate website. Lets face it, the libraries fought this battle on reader privacy... and lost. Why should you care? Ever heard of the words 'Preventative Detention'? If not, look it up because they have a whole bunch of Muslims in Gitmo and Bagram who are in jail because they have been 'Preventatively Detained'.
I do not worry because I am on the Lord's business. My job is to inform you and let you know what is really happening in our world and show you as much as I can how it effects you as a Christian in these VERY LAST DAYS. So don't go to sleep. Don't take those sleeping tablets in the MSM or other corporate-christian (Mega-Church 501[c]3 sites) or before you know it, you'll be sleepwalking and stretching out your hand to take the Mark of the Beast. You may never wake up again until you are engulfed in Hell fire and cannot find a way out, forever. Get real with your walk so that you can say...
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
If God requires your life, see it as a gift back to him for what Christ did for you.
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."

Assange: A Swedish View
What is The Assange Rape Case About?
The article is just food for thought and it is indeed written from the Defense side of the story. But Like I have said, we have more than enough sex crimes here in America (and especially in our own military) to deal with for us to go and get involved in Swedens affairs. This whole affair show us for meddling hypocrites. You know what? This kind of behavior is only going to make things more, not less difficult for the US in diplomatic circles in the long run. I don't think the Swedes will ever forgive us for strong arming them into doing this, especially if the case falls apart. But my guess is that the US will manufacture some evidence against Assange and pervert the course of Sweden's legal system to get Assange. The US is more than capable of bribing, blackmailing and otherwise coopting folks in order to get them to spy for us. This is no different once the words 'national security' get involved and the President signs a secret directive. Now Assange, I have heard, does have some rather bizzare habits (we Christians would call them perverted), but once again this is just rumor or perhaps just character assasination. But rape suddenly discovered after major leaks hit cyberspace? Going after Assange is akin to waging war on a fly with sledge hammer in a china shop with bare feet. Here is the rub, you may get the fly, but at what cost? Everyone has focused on Assange and the 'lone nut' NCO who supposedly supplied the data to him. Not who made the terrible decision (after being warned not to) of putting all of those cables in the Intelligence Communities own internal sharing system. The fact that these cables are now in the public domain is not Wikileaks fault or responsibility, it is the US State Departments. They, not Wikileaks are charged with securing Classified information.They failed but want cast the blame elsewhere. Obama being a terminally weak Chief Executuve, cannot stand up to his Secretary of State and must bow to her will. A pitiful state of affairs for a pitiful Presidency. The result? The media spotlight is on Assange, not Clinton. State (Clinton directly) was warned time and time again how stupid it was to put those cables in that system and they were asking for just what we are seeing now. They did it anyway. It is almost as if key decision makers are the ones really behind these leaks. 250,000 cables 'stolen' by one NCO? Forgive me if I am just a little skeptical. My take? This looks like some kind of deep intelligence operation waged by a foreign government against the US with ready made fall guys to take the blame for the real power behind it. I could be wrong, I don't know but that is my own 'gut feeling' about this whole affair. It is why I cannot jump in anyones corner, Not Assange (which is why you will not see any of the cables posted here) and not the US (who I see increasingly as the worlds primary enemy of the Rule of Law, Justice and Peace). I don't see any good guys here, just varying shades of moral noir.
Nude Awakening: Giving Up Liberty For A Statistical Anomaly
Financial Crimes: DOJ Touts Operation 'Small Fish'
Missing of course from any prosecution are leaders of BofA, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and other major banks who have that revolving door into the US Government (Paulson and Kashkari both work for Goldman Sachs). Clearly Holder is feeling the heat for focusing so much of the DOJ's resources on one blogger, when trillions have been stolen and he has been dragging his feet. All these years later the banksters are still pulling in those 7 and 8 figure bonuses and American workers are collecting pink slips. Holder is on a short leash. He cannot even shine the shoes of the boys over at Goldman, let alone prosecute them, though on a good day they may let him shuffle his feet for them. Where in the world do they find such sorry Black men?!
Obamacare: Your Health Care Will Cost You $23,342 In 2020
This is the staring you in the face, flashing red-light problem Obama refused to deal with when pushing this albatross on Americans. He was in the back pocket of those making a mint of of a broken system and who will make even more when Obamacare comes into full force. "Health care premiums have grown roughly four times faster than income. This simply isn’t sustainable without crushing government and private budgets. And if the problem is not truly dealt with, that is what will happen"
Hint, hint, hint... we sell them lots and lots of arms.

Warning: Muni Bond Crisis Coming
As I have told my readers, this crisis is nowhere near over. We are at the top of the third inning and we are down,
13 14 trillion to nothing. I listened to a clip from CSPAN this morning and they had some one who was talking about the economy. He clearly did not know what he was talking about. He said, jobs were 'stabilizing' and that Housing was headed for recovery. He went on to say Bernanke was trying to create Jobs with his money printing. This typical of the rubbish-think that put us in this mess. These guys never saw the last crisis coming and are being paid not to see the next one. What has Bernanke been doing behind closed doors with our tax dollars? Let me make this clear, this printing operation is not about Jobs, this is about paying for the government at interest rates the nation can bear. All this talk about jobs is just a smoke screen to get Joe Sixpac to support the destruction of his wages and savings (via inflation). Americans, not being the 'brightest bulb in the box' and will believe just about anything the government says. The only thing needed is the stamp of officialdom and a Cable News Network (anyone of them will do) to repeat it. All this talk about keeping interest rates low... BALONEY. I have triple A credit (truly) and my interest rates on my Big Bank (the ones that got bailed out) credit cards range from 15.9%-19.9%. While the banks were getting free money from the Fed I never saw it drop. Small business loans are the same, I had almost all of by my SMB credit-line taken away and I have a 900+ Vantage Credit Score! So all of this talk about spurring growth with low interest rates is a scam. You don't cut off small business credit lines and keep credit card rates this high when you want to spur growth. Banks that do that should be cut off from the Fed's all-too-willing largess. Ben hasn't done that, nor is he likely to. The Fed's policies are what you do when you want to make the rich richer and the poor poorer and that is exactly what Bernanke's highly inflationary policy will do.

Ted Turner Calls For Global 'One Child' Policy
There are only two ways to do this, forced abortions or forced sterilizations like they have in China, which, by the way has a 'One Child' Policy and do these very things.
Is This How The Clinton's Got So Rich, Via Credit Card Fraud?
Is the US State Department An Organized Crime Organization? This looks to me like textbook organized crime. The only difference is this is done with diplomatic immunity!
Leiberman's Attack On Press Freedom
That is so sad. Lieberman is Jewish and should know enough of his Nazi history to understand what he is doing. These are not innocent actions he is taking and he has to know it. Are a small number of influential and wealthy American Jews like Lieberman carrying the Nazi torch wittingly or unwittingly? Brethren in Christ, it is because I am a friend of Israel and the Jewish people that I cannot help but ask the question no one else is willing to. These days, Israel today is the butt of the world's anger because of the actions of a very few. Years ago, a Jewish friend of mine, who travels extensively to Israel in important business circles, told me of the 'enemy within' the state Israel and that certain American Jews and Jews inside Israel (and her security services) were not really Jews but whose families took advantage of the great confusion after the Holocaust to 'become' Jews to escape prosecution for crimes they committed against the Jews (the Nazi's were expert document forgers). It was the perfect cover. The Bible also talks about those who call themselves Jews and are not (Rev 3:9). Let me make this clear, I am not saying this necessarily true of Lieberman (I really don't know) and the very last thing I want to do is to set the blogosphere on fire with more anti-semitic insanity that is now so prevalent and fashionable in these dark times. But which Senator is always the first to call for war, stifle freedoms, erect concentration camps and crush the press? Don't let an evil few turn you into an anti-Semite for there is truly a satanic stratagem behind this and powerful deceit that will be revealed on the hills of Meggido in a crescendo of anti-Jewish hate. Is not the rage of the world growing against Israel with each passing day? Who do you think is behind it?
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
State Dept. & Schools Threatens Students Who Read Wikileaks
This is like saying, you are not allowed to look at the elephant in to room, nor smell the aroma. The real issue is that the education provided in these high priced schools is worthless. These institutions in reality only provide an economic barrier to key government jobs (some cost upwards of $100k for a degree) so that those with money get those jobs and those without it, don't. Real diplomacy is revealed in the cables, not in the musty old books written by know-nothings who make six figure salaries at these major government funded (and controlled) Universities, it is more of a place for indoctrination into the annals of 'political correct' thinking, than real education. From the looks of these cables, a career as mobster or leader of a Credit Card theft ring is more suited as prospective employees of Hillary's State Dept. than a PhD in Political Science. Of course the government is going crazy trying to put the horse back in the barn, The US is being revealed for what it is.
Where to I see this prophetically? Short and simple, America is slowly being 'stripped naked' by forces she does not understand or know of. Her leaders are too busy stealing credit card data, running contracting scams and having sex with young interns (of both sexes, sometimes simultaneously) to pay any attention to her real enemies. I think with the release of these cables we are now looking at the Great Whore's undergarments. I think over the following months and (perhaps) couple of years her underwear will come off next. This is a prelude to her being destroyed, utterly. Some of you may think I am too hard on America, but we have had power on the world stage for far too long and have become incredibly corrupt, violent and increasingly repressive inside out own borders. Murder has become a right in America and now you can purchase your own 'Murder Gift Certificate'. God can no longer look the other way; and I assure you, he won't. I mean, what kind of nation puts an actor on the Terror 'Watch list' for protesting Gas Drilling or a prominent Senator on the 'no-fly' list? But what you are looking at is not an aberration, it is the scum underneath that Red White and Blue facade that has been fulminating for decades under a succession of corrupt Presidents, evil citizens, bribed Senators and Congressmen, some of whom who are screaming loudest now and have been double agents *for other nations* for years! Listen, Foreign capitals and intelligence organizations have these documents now and you cannot put the genie back in the bottle. No my dear clueless Americans, the real target is not foreign spies but YOU! They do not want YOU to know what evil that they have been up to with YOUR tax money. You see, they think they can save this nation without any radical change in behavior (we Christians call it repentance). Very few see America's sinfulness and her current state of affairs as being connected. We have a massive Mortgage Fraud scandal that is throwing millions out of their homes by banks with questionable title to those properties (which make up a major share of their balance sheets), a black hole that is growing at some of the largest US banks (this after trillions in Bailouts by the Fed), we have a Fed that must print up $600 Billion dollars for the first few months of the fiscal year, just so the Government can remain open, we have two wars we are losing and millions of Americans (yes, millions) who have lost their jobs since 2008, and that is just the stuff you hear about in the news. Other major scandals will soon break that may truly shake the foundations of the republic and the death of one person in particular (who is terminally ill) may bring this about before next spring. Americans have no idea the amount of crime going on in its National Security Apparatus and you know what? Being destined for damnation themselves...
...they just don't care.

Is Paypal A US Intelligence Front Organization?
This is not the first time Paypal has shown its true colors. Now I cannot say if Paypal is such an organization or not. I just don't know and I do want to be fair, the US Government may have just told them to cut off Wikileaks or they would lose access to the US banking system payment transfer system (thus destroying their business). Would our government do this? Oh, yes without batting an eye. It just seems that whenever something the government does not like goes on line, Paypal is there to shut down their revenue stream within about 72 hours. Many, many of you have asked me why I do not have a Paypal account so donations can be made. Now you know why. This is a site for Christians who want to know the times and will not knowingly get in bed with any entity I suspect of being an intelligence front organization or engages in unwanted tracking of the visitors to this site (which is why I do not often put up YouTube Videos here). It is why I got rid of Google analytics and if I use it again, I will give my readers ample warning before hand. Our government is doing its best to use the back door to stifle a free press and free flow of information and make bloggers like Wikileaks pay for the US governments own INCOMPETENCE. The number of alternative blogs and Mainline news organizations and major online retailers who are deeply in bed with (or covertly owned by) US intelligence would stagger your mind. Their target (enemy) is not Russia, Cuba or China, but Americans! Let me put it another way, the US government has declared war on you. If you have never heard Naomi Wolf talk on this, you really should. I say this to you again, Nazi Germany is just a jackboot-step away in America and I will say this again as well, the Nazi's never went away, they are real and seriously bankrolled. In the information war, noting is sacred. NOTHING. Who do you think right now is engaged in cyberterrorism? Brothers and sisters, if (and only if) you feel led by the Holy Spirit, please pray for our President. I do not think he is in charge, if indeed anyone is right now in Washington. This nation is in deep trouble and the various agencies just seem to be doing whatever they want with little or no input or oversight from the guy at the top, who is busy... writing his autobiography.
Read your History Read what has been revealed in America's own investigations. Read what scholars have written. You need to do your own research and do not expect to be spoon fed by intelligence front organizations masqerading as news sites. These things are important because if Americans do not wake up very, very quickly labor camps and death camps are in our future. The model for the future can be found in Gitmo (and scores of other classified location camps) and Unicor and remember this, Auschwitz was a Private Prison. The goal: A ready source of Free Labor to prop up the state and its war machine. Check out this interesting little email and know that for 42 months, the antichrist system will be given enourmous power over all of us, even Christians (read and understand Rev 13:7). Our job is to not become part of it or serve its evil and I think more importantly for the masses of nominal Christians, to recognize it for being that system when it arises in all of its wickedness. This is hardly a foregone conclusion because if you have been fooled by this system, how are you going to discern the far more deceitful 42 month system when it comes? If you don't start to open your eyes and fill your lamps (let the reader understand) you won't. You will grope in the darkness wanting light to see, but will not find it.
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Agri-Corporations Fail To Destroy Family Farmers... For Now
Don't Blame the GOP. It was the 'Monsanto' Democrats who pushed this. Do you want to know more? Check this out. Lots of links video's and information. if you really want to look behind the curtain, I can assure you if you really take the time to look, you will find a genuine, bona-fide Swastika. If there were not mountains of irrefutable documentary evidence to support this, you could call this a wild-eyed conspiracy theory. But if you want to be deceived, all you have to do is go to sleep and ignore what is staring you in the face. The fact that our government is doing these things to us is not a 'coincidence'. There is real power behind these trends, power that has been weilded for decades behind the scenes. Pay attention, Remember the Holocaust? Part II is heading this way, like the Jews of Germany back then, most were in denial until they were rounded up em masse and herded into Ghetto's or worse. Many of your top named Pharmecuetical corporations sprung directly out of IG Farben (the massive Nazi Chemical Corporation). Some of your Big-Agri Businesses as well. Why aren't your news sites and major MSM folks talking about this? Who owns them? Where did they come from? Who sits on their boards? Who holds Major blocks of their shares? Do an internet search on IG Farben and add the terms, 'banking' or 'Drugs' then try 'Slave Labor' or 'Zyklon B' (the gas used in the Hitlers gas chambers), if you really want to know what is coming to America. If you just want to mock, then go ahead and sit there and wait for their swaskticka laden future to come crashing into your pretty little world. Let me make this perfectly clear, these guys are seriously bankrolled, and are deadly serious.
Brothers, I cannot sit and be silent, because from where I sit, America is made up of two kinds of people, the blissfully ignorant and the limp-wristed coward. I will never be either. Somebody has to sound the alarm, and if other 'Christians' and 'pastors' out there would rather give you the same 'Jesus Loves Me' verses for the umpteenth time while their buddies try and sell you a subprime mortgage in Church (and they get a kickback), that is their business. They are not doing anyone any service by closing the eyes of the sheep to the very real danger that awaits us all in the days ahead. "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."

NSA's definintion of 'Security' is much more than protecting computer systems from attack. It also means spying on everyone to provide 'security' for the government.

I am still waiting for that warrant to be issued for Mark Foley all these years later. Or these banksters who defrauded us of trillions. Clearly these charges are trumped up to have him extradited into American's crooked courts. Sadly, Sweden's legal system looks to be pretty rotten as well to get swept in a political prosecution, rather than a criminal one.
Fed To Reveal Who Got 3.3 Trillion In Bailouts
$700 Billion Tax Cuts For Rich Will (Probably) Remain In Place
Of course you knew this was coming. How are they going to pay for it? First they let unemployment benefits for millions of workers expire and second, they froze pay increases for all federal workers (save the Military). The rich get richer and the poor get poorer You let them get a away with it and you the American voter have no one but yourself to blame. On a positive note, not all the rich are evil and want to screw over the nation fiscally. So, if the GOP do not get what they want, what do you think the GOP will do? It is lunatic ideas like this that has America seriously careening towards fiscal disaster.

Wikileaks: The Only 'Media' Organization Doing Its Job
When you boil down all of the noise coming from the MSM, that is what this is really all about. Wikileaks, in this new age, is doing its job. Reporting news. If the US cannot keep control of its secrets, that is the US's problem, not Wikileaks. Because of the nature of this dump, I cannot applaud this massive data dump, but I cannot condmen it either. In this case, one party has failed in its job (the US), and the other has not (Wikileaks). What is the American response? Kill the messenger. Keep this in mind as well as you consider this issue. Few raw cables have actually been released. Most of the major News Organizations are just spoon feeding us little tidbits here and there. In short, other than diplomatic embarassment, Wikileaks has not taken the far more dangerous course of just dumping the data and perhaps risking lives in the process. So is Wikileaks really irresponsible? I think not.

"…And so Ceasar fell. When he came to himself again, he said, If he had done or said any thing amiss, he desired their worships to think it was his infirmity. Three or four wenches, where I stood, cried `Alas! good soul,` and forgave him with all their hearts; but there`s no heed to be taken of them: if Caesar had stabbed their mothers, they would have done no less! - Julius Ceasar (Shakespeare)
Shakespeare shows the mentality of the mob and thee totality of their grasp on what is going on around them in one scene. This is why I like Shakespere so much, he understood human nature and could encapsulate it so well in drama. It is why his plays have survived some 400 years, even since the days Queen Elizabeth I sat on the throne. I guess that is why on long weekends I like to pull out my Shakespeare DVD's and watch them.
But being part of a mob is not a good thing. This is especially true for Christians. We should not be part of any mob. The saying of the world says that there is safety in numbers, but for Christians, there is danger in numbers. Did not Jesus say that few would find the path to life? Did he not make that abundantly, perfectly and crystal clear? Yet today in America we have mega-Churches springing up all over the nation led by men with questionable spiritual credentials teeming with people who claim to be Christians. This is a strategy of the devil. Let me explain.
There is some real spiritual hunger out there in America. Not as much as there should be, but it is there a recognizable minority of people looking for real spiritual perspective in our times. There are a lot of Christians who want their faith to have some relevance in our times without joining political bandwagons (like the religious right). Many join these new religious entities (called Churches) and come away with an empty feeling. This is not atypical, but since others are there seeking as well, they continue to go to these religious facilities. On one level you cannot blame them because finding real Christian fellowship with men and women of God who are bound and determined to get into the Kingdom of Heaven is a difficult task, at least in America and much of the west. You can always find the typical Church pew warmer or nominal 'Christian' out there who knows neither their bibles nor the times we are in. Such men and women are a dime a dozen, these are the lukewarm 'foolish virgin' garden variety of Christian. They are everywhere.
This is where the multitude is though, in this spiritual wilderness of worldly pleasures, materialism, chasing the 'American Dream' and spiritual self-deceit. Within these numbers and crowds, there is no spiritual safety, but rather deep spiritual danger. The many are not saved, only the few. I must emphasize this point because if you don't believe the words of Christ, what kind of Christianity are you following?
Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
Read the versus of the Lord, whom many of you claim to serve. There will be the 'great gaggle' of nominal Christians who simply will not get in. Look at the words ate and drank in thy presence.
we have eaten and drank in thy presence: which may be understood both literally of many, who were miraculously led by Christ, or at whose tables he had ate and drank, and they with him; as did not only publicans and sinners, but some of the Pharisees, who invited him to their houses; and in a religious sense, of many who eat of the legal sacrifices; and of others, who eat the bread, and drink the wine at the Lord's table; all which will be insufficient to introduce men into the kingdom and glory of Christ: natural relation to Christ, which the Jews may claim, being born of them, and personal acquaintance with him, and a bare profession of him, will be of no avail another day - John Gill's Expository Of The Entire Bible.
How many people take the words, exhortations and commandments of the Lord with any real seriousness? Not many, brethren. There are a lot of 'pretenders' out there, but not many who will make the real sacrifices to get into the kingdom. How many of you will leave your jobs, even your families if God directs you to? I know many will say they will, but not many will actually do it. What we have in American Christendom is millions of 'great pretenders'. They pretend to be Christians but really are not. Now I am going to tell you the real tragedy, these men and women actually think they are saved and are getting into the kingdom. There will be utter shock and dismay with they are cast out on the great day.
How can you tell if you are a great pretender who has been deceived? Here is how. Do you explain away Christ's commandments rather than follow them? Do you have a thousand different reasons why you don't do what Christ told you to do? Have you created your own 'personal exemption clause' that 'allows' you to ignore God's commandments and exhortations? Have you created your own personal Jesus that says obedience is optional for you? A perfect case in point is watching. Christ told us to watch. There are clear concise prophetic signs that we as Christians in these times should be looking for. There are political and spiritual entities that the bible speaks of in the last days but how many people really understand who these entities are that most have already taken the stage and we are not far at all away from the final 42 month reign of the beast/antichrist system? How many will follow after one of these entities, actually thinking they are doing God service? Did not Christ warn us all with great emphasis not to be deceived and that deceit would be everywhere in the last days? Now… do you know who the key prophetic players are in our world today? If you are obedient to Christ and are watching, you would. Most don't. Biblical prophecy is a serious business. The Pharisees missed it and were cast out of the kingdom for it. The Church I am here to tell you, for the most part will follow after their pernicious ways. Is this not what Christ is warning us about? The Churches of America are probably the last place (with some exception) a person should go to find Christ. I know, I have been kicked out of enough of them for just showing up and not looking like the rest of the congregation. I never said a word other than good morning to the greeter at the door. When I left, they made a special effort to meet me at the door when I left and told me not to come back! This is not the only time something like this has happened to me. But it is as Christ said…
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
I tell you these things because I know what it is like to be rejected by organization that call themselves Christian. But you know what the Lord said to me? Two things. First he said, don't worry, they won't let me in either. Second he said this, You have an anointing that scares the devil and these lost souls do not understand it and so they kicked you out. This is the reality of the modern Church. For the most part it is Placebo Christianity. I know many of you think I am just too bold to speak out about these things. But who is going to tell you about them? Churches like these, or perhaps this one or maybe this one? Listen, it is because of men like this that there is a massive construction project going on... in Hades. Call it the Netherworld Construction Corporation. They have to make room for all of the millions of lost souls these men are deceiving. Hell I hate to tell you, is bursting at the seams.
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. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
In order to understand the times we are in, you have to know the scriptures and what to watch for and that brethren, does not describe very many Christians today. Why do we have sodomties running our Churches and major demoninations? Why do we have secret Nazi's doing the exact same thing (yes we do)? I am not talking smack nor is this information sourced from 'off the internet'. I am telling you that we have some truly evil men who sit in the top echelons of some of the world's major Christian denominations! This is what has happened to much of the Church leadership, it has been, I hate to inform you hijacked by satan and he is very clever at disguising his true nature from the incurious and biblically ignorant.
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
But that is where the crowd is and where millions of American Christians will remain - with the herd, with the 'many'. You have heard of the 'Christian right'? Well you can call this group the 'Christian 'lost'. You have the Lords word on it.
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Striving, really striving to enter the kingdom of heaven is something only a few are really doing. It is not easy to get in, but it is not as hard as some make it out to be. Anyone who wants in can get in and here is how: you must trust in Christ completely, take up your cross and follow him. Wherever Christ tells you to go, go there, whatever he tells you to do, do it. If he says, 'watch', brother you had better be watching, if he says be faithful to your spouse, you should do it. If he says not to be unequally yoked, that is what he means. God's commandments are not that onerous, they are not that hard. But what he demands are the things we must do to please him.
I am amazed at the folks who do not know or care to know what is really happening in our world. I really am, they just don't care. They think they are going to get into heaven while living in a spiritual battlezone without ever picking up a spiritual weapon. They sit blithely by trusting in some religious organization to save them, when salvation is an individual thing; each soul is responsible for himself before the Lord. YOU must strive to enter into the strait gate.
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
I say these things because as I watch our world slip into the devils grasp and I just don't see Christians as being clued in as to what is happening and how it affects them as Christians. They seem to be in confusion about what is going on and get defensive if anyone points out the very great sins of our nation as somehow being 'anti-government'. Pointing out the horrible persecution Christians are suffering as 'their problem'. Well here is the real rub and the very great stumbling block, the citizenship of a real Christian is not in America, it is in heaven. We are crucified with Christ. Those who are suffering under intense persecution deserve our prayers and when possible, our support, not a careless shrug while on the way to the cinema, "that's not my problem, I got my own issues to deal with…" is the typical Laodecian response. House full of food, nice big car, rotund waistline, three humungous HDTV's in their four bedroom house and he is talking about 'problems'!
But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
The word Conversation is the greek word :
Here we can understand that we have citizenship and a duty as citizens of a heavenly kingdom. The laws of God's kingdom and the laws of this world are more often than not, at odds. Our duty is to God's kingdom first. It is why the Apostle John's words are so important. His works spell out the complex relationship with clarity and simplicity.
From G4176; a community, that is, (abstractly) citizenship (figuratively): - conversation.
Thayers says this about the word.
1) the administration of civil affairs or of a commonwealth
2) the constitution of a commonwealth, form of government and the laws by which it is administered
3) a state, commonwealth
3a) the commonwealth of citizens
Part of Speech: noun neuter
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
You see there is the world and there are Christians and if at times I speak so boldly about the sins of this world it is because too many Christians are still stuck in the world, love it and are not behaving like the citizens of Heaven. If you are not behaving like a citizen of heaven, you are behaving like a child of darkness.
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
We have a hope that is far better than anything this world has to offer, but we must come out of it in order to partake of the heavenly gift. The world is something to be overcome, not compromised with.
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Why? Because there is the prince of this world and he has nothing to do with Christ.
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. (Joh 12:31)
This is basic Christian doctrine but the truth is that it is only when we mistake our allegiance in Christ as being somehow transferable or that we can move back and forth between one and the other, of the kingdoms of this world that we end up in trouble. It is that enticement that causes many to go astray it has been the major mistake of the Christian right. So consider what I say here as many are working in this world system doing jobs that deep in your heart, they know are not right. It is because as I have told you on this site many times, there is a very powerful dark force working behind the kingdoms of this earth and very great wickedness will be revealed in short order. You can see it with your spiritual eyes, if you choose to open them up. Industrial scale abortions, human cloning, wars fought with lies, torture in order to steal, rape, blackmail, murder; false accusations fraud... these are all works of the devil. We have seen Human misery of biblical proportions, massive thefts, usury, sodomy paraded and forced on the world. The world is careening towards judgment and it is our job as Christians not be of the world, but of Christ.
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. (Joh 14:30)
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. (Joh 16:11)
It is the spirit that rules over those who know not Christ.
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: (Eph 2:2)
As the days go by, we must not be afraid of the wars, and rumors of wars. These things must be before Christ comes. They will only get worse.. Our job is to:
Trust in the lord with all of our heart
Faith In The Hour Of Betrayal
Lean not to our own worldly human understanding
Know our bibles
Know the things the Scriptures prophesy and take them to heart and not be like the Pharisees, who were blind to their own messiah and lost their souls.
Do NOT explain away spiritual and scriptural admonitions and commandments, but rather do them. It is not the 'explainers away' of God's word that will get into the kingdom, but the doers.
Love your brother, your neighbor and even your enemies.
Hate no man
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
One thing I should say before I close this piece is that you should sincerely prepare your heart for all kinds of betrayals. Betrayals in government, in your jobs, in your business relationships, even in your homes, families, friends and yes, even those who have called themselves your brethren. I sense this is coming and you should prepare your souls for it. I think many Christians when they begin to see the troubles coming on this nation will turn on other Christians in a mad attempt at securing their own personal gain and even survival. This kind of betrayal is something Christ warned us all about many times and we need to take this to heart. Not every brother or sister who says they love Christ, really does. Far too many love their own lives, pleasures, wives, mistresses, bank accounts (insert personal idol here), upper middle class lifestyle, more that they love Christ. These are not overcomers, they are succmbers. They will succumb to the world system and the prince thereof. We, however who love God and take his commandments to heart will overcome, but not without cost.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
This is the test of a true Christian, they love not their own lives, they lay it down for Christ. Do you want to be holy? Pick up your cross and follow after Christ, no matter what. Holiness is not defined by how prudish and judgmental you can be, or how much money you give away, but in being separate unto God for his use and pleasure. Holiness requires separation. It is why the Ancient Israelites had to leave Egypt, a land steeped in idolatry. They had to be separate from that system and those who dabble in things that God does not approve of.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
In An Age Of Betryal And A World Of Moral Cowards
For this is truly the hour of betrayal. Our leaders are selling us out for a vision of the future that comes right out of the Third Reich. Once again, you can come up with a million excuses why privacy is becoming a thing of the past, naked scanners and body cavity searches are for air travelers and soon to be for train and bus travelers as well. Travel inside Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union was also severely restricted. The same thing looks to be coming here. Sure they will have their excuses as to why it is necessary, so did the Nazi's. Ubiquitous wiretapping without warrant? You think it started in America? Think again.
Terrorism, we are told is the reason, while we essentially encourage terrorists to come across our border, making it illegal even to search them or ask them for their ID, but you, the American citizen must submit to body cavity searches. This is the plan, to restrict travel make it a burden and cumbersome and as scary as possible. Who wants to risk an $11,000 fine for the 'crime' of objecting to a body search? This is America. This is what she is becoming right before our eyes but the government has a thousand and one excuses and reasons why they say they need to do this. Terrorism is the word.
Now fast forward - There is a financial crisis coming to America that cannot be stopped. How certain is it? If you can stop the sun rising in the morning tomorrow, America has the same chance of stopping this crisis. The laws of economics and of mathematics are as certain as the laws of physics. A crisis is coming and new laws will be be written (or have been for passage right after the crisis hits) for the 'new times' that will come upon America. There is no way we can avoid this and once you know this and internalize it, you can better understand why some elements want internal travel severely restricted and controlled. Some kind of Federal Marital Law will probably come to America. The only thing that can stop it is if America is destroyed in a Nuclear War first and when you have nations who are bold enough to shut down a large portion of our nuclear capabilities using unrestricted warfare and park a nuclear sub off our coast and fire off a missile, brother this is no pipe dream, not anymore. When all is said and done, the new system will look like the old system, the system whose visible (key word here, pay attention) edifice was dismantled after WWII, but went into hiding and is ready to re-reveal itself in all of its satanic glory. It and Islam will rest perfectly, side by side (The Seven Headed/Ten Horned Beast and The Two Horned False Prophet). That is the system that is coming and why millions of Christians will accept it, because it will be accept it, - or be taken away, just like the Gypsies, Communists, homosexuals, anti-Nazi pastors of Nazi Germany were.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Why do people accept such a system? I will tell you. I am not trying to use words here merely to be pejorative, but to be descriptive. Most men are moral cowards. In the face of evil, they bow and scrape before it but will never oppose it. It is why the highly educated people of Germany followed after the Nazi's and the 'silent majority' reluctantly said, 'Heil Hitler' to their neighbors on their way to work in the morning. If you did not say it, you would get a knock on the door from the Gestapo. Moral cowardice has become the 21st Century American spirit. I think the real tragedy is that Americans of the 21st century are twice the moral cowards of the Germans of those days. Americans don't stand up against evil (though at times, I am pleasantly surprised by some) but bow before it, Christians, nominal ones anyway, are some of the worst. It does not mater if they are Baptist or Methodist, Catholic or Anglican, they go with the flow and show no outrage and mass murder, lies, thefts and deceits of every stripe. They don't care, not really, as long as the SUV has gas, the house is heated and the fridge is full.
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Moral cowardice and Christianity are mutually exclusive terms. It is like a 'light dark' room. There is no such thing, either a room is dark or it is not. Peaceful opposition to evil is what our job here on earth is all about. It is to be a living sacrifice for God's truth, the gospel and the kingdom of heaven. It is the way of the cross. We as Christians are called to be a light in this wicked world and we cannot be that as moral cowards. Faith and Courage rest side by side in a real believer. If that describes you, then here is God's promise to you.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

I was going to take a break from writing anything long through the holidays unless it is an emergency, but I know many of you want to know what I think about this so here goes...
I think the US made a big mistake by playing hardball with Assange. By ressurercting those rape charges, they ensured this leak would come, they should be very, very thankful that the names of some of American sources were not contained in this dump, because, many would surely turned up dead in a matter of days, if not hours. I think it sad that all of these cables have been leaked. While the information is valuable from a bloggers point of view, it will do enormous damage to America and her foreign policy for years to come, some damage may even be irreparable. But America has done a pitiful job of picking the folks who have clearances and handle this information. The lower a persons moral character, the more likely you will get a spy or traitor. You have pedophiles, rapists, hardened racists, habitual liars and financial criminals sitting behind Sensitive Compartmented Information computer terminals, and we are not just talking about a few dozen either. Currently the Justice Department has several hundred cases under investigation for SCI clearance holders using government computers to download kiddie porn, just at the Pentagon. That some of these people will leak and spy is a foregone conclusion. What this government wanted and now has were secular-athiestic people to make critical decisions in government and remove the 'Christian' element. Well, now that is exactly what they have. As I have told my readers before, this site (Watson's Web) is banned at the State Department. The goal has been and still is this: NO CHRISTIAN PARTICIPATION/INPUT IS ALLOWED IN KEY GOVERNMENT DECESION MAKING. Patriotism and ethics are no longer absolute, but 'situational', meaning that you follow ethics when you feel like it. A $100,000 bribe is more than enough to create a 'situation' for those of low moral character to alter their ethics. Thus we have the real result of 'situational ethics'.
Hence we get leaks like this. Wikileaks is not your major problem, the cleared folks who steal and sell this information are your problem. Going after wikileaks is akin to shooting a man on whose land your stray horse wandered because your ranch hand did not lock the barn. You go after the ranch hand, not your neighbor. While the GOP now want to grandstand and show how 'tough' they are on national security, don't you believe it, a lot of these guys have been very close to Mossad's arm in the US, better known As AIPAC take their money and slip them secrets. Please beleive me, I am not picking on Israel, it is just that there is a plethora of information on them and their activities written and financed by folks who have a real anti-semitic 'bee in their bonnet'. That describes more than half of the alternative news sites out there. Peel away that 'liberal' facade and you find a swasticka underneath.
The American government is teeming with spy's and traitors. Some work for China, others the Isreali's, still others the Turks. You have spies working for Germany and the Saudi's. You have spy's at the Cabinet level. The American government, I hate to inform you is one big brothel, when you have a dual citizen running our domestic security and then turning around and selling naked scanners to the DHS which he once ran, you know you have a problem. Wikileaks? What can I tell you, as sad as this situation is, my guess is that half of those cables have been sitting in the capitals of foreign governments intelligence services just hours after they were sent out from our embassies and State Department and this leak will only give them a chance to cross check the information their sources have provided in the past to see if they have a problem with their sources that needs '45 caliber' correction.
I think America's sins have only just begun to be shown to the world, as the months roll on I think it possible America will be stripped of her 'clothing' and her nakedness will be seen for all.

How Obama Will Silence Criticism To TSA Scanning
(Do read the above linked article, it is most important) Americans get invasive body scans, while Arizona cops cannot even get an ID from a terrorist who skulks across the southern border, illegally! Does that sound like a President who is concerned about security or one who wants to grease the palms of this buddies? Brothers, there is a $$$MINT$$$ to be made in this somebody is going to get filthy rich!!. Do you get the impression that Obama's real target is not 'terrorists' but the American people? However, I think I should say this to all of you. Don't cop an attitude with the ordinary TSA guy who is forced to do this job if you fly, they are not your enemy, many will, I am sure tell you they don't want to to this and do not make enough money to suffer the abuse many will have to. Would you want to feel up people all day long for the peanuts these men and women are making? So don't go making it harder on them. No, one of your biggest problems (though he is just one of many) is the man that sits at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, not the TSA, $17/hr employee. I am not against reasonable security procedures to secure air travel. The question is reasonableness; body cavity searches and naked picture scans for every air traveler whose only crime is purchasing an airline ticket is not reasonable.
Forgive me bretheren but this man is not honest, he is not competent and he has shown a real contempt for ordinary Americans while corruptly enriching all of the banksters and crooks who are destroying America and selling her America to China and hiding numerous attacks the Chinese have made against America from the people. Why aren't you hearing about this in the MSM? Because anyone who criticizes China too much will not get access to her red-hot markets. Anyone who points out the real achilles heel in American security, the southern border will be marginalized. Think about that long and hard for the pattern is clear to those with eyes to see. The United States Of China is on its way. Some of you sit smug and say 'I don't see it, Obama is jus' wonderful' while you sit collecting disability, unemployment or Social Security. Black America, pay attention I just don't think Barak Obama is your friend and defending his incompetence and betrayls have become the 'New Black'.
What are you going to do when the checks stop coming in? Let me make it plain to you. One day in the not too distance future, the checks will stop coming in. I do not think this fact and these highly invasive 'control freak', police state scans and security measures aimed only at ordinary Americans (who are and will be the real victims of these trillion dollar thefts) are completely unrelated. I really don't. So pay attention. Folks don't see it because those government checks are still coming in and thus think it in their interest not to see it. It is the 'fools paradise syndrome'.
They will only open their eyes when those checks stop coming in or it takes a shopping cart full of dollar bills to buy a loaf of bread. By then, the rest of the police state measures will be in place and it will be a crime to protest anything the government does. Brothers, it will be 'bow down' or go to Gitmo; the real goal of Lucifer, Inc. Read your history.
None of you need fear that I will cower before these men and women who hate Christians and Americans while they sell out America to China, try and arm them and praise Islam. I never will. I will be careful, but never cowardly, knowing that one day it may cost me my life. I will not be the first Christian martyred for his faith, I won't be the last, nor will I be the first prophet (which I do not see myself as) persecuted by the devil and his imps. I will never stop doing what God has called me to do until he (and he alone) says stop. As the wickedness America and her President grow so does her confusion. I know many of you think I hate Obama, believe me, I don't. I just know he sold out his administration before he even took the oath and there is nothing he can do can salvage it, the forces he got in bed with want to destroy him and America and Obama must decide what is more important, himself or America. America is being out maneuvered all over the world by China, who know their enemy and are working to bring her down and will probably succeed or at the very least do the ground work for others (ten kings) who will bring her down... in one (biblical) hour. And the scriptures are clear, she will go down, suddenly and violently with no remedy, forever and the people attached to her as well. So I will proclaim the sins of Babylon and the evils of this age not so that she will repent, she won't, but so that men and women inside her (including most nominal Christians) can come out of her before it is too late. The Harlot is on God's death list and there is nothing anyone can do to save her.
Brethren, if there is confusion in her National Security establishment now over North Korea and China's dirty deeds in America and America's mountains of debts which it is now mathematically impossible to repay, it is divinely appointed. God has blinded their eyes. They cannot see what is staring them in the face nor more importantly, come up with real solutions because all of the voices they are listening to are corrupted and are speaking from the 'satanic' side of things and they serve his interests. God's counsellors have been barred from offering advise. More and more, unless you are filthy rich, praise Islam, gaze into a crystal ball, cast a star chart or wear a pentagram you will not be heard in the halls of American power. But the Lord shall surely speak from Heaven.
I have declared war on you, your officials, and advisors.
But without warning, disaster will strike-- and your magic charms won't help at all. Keep using your magic powers and your charms as you have always done. Maybe--just maybe-- you will frighten somebody! You have worn yourself out, asking for advice from those who study the stars and tell the future month after month. Go ask them how to be saved from what will happen. People who trust the stars are as helpless as straw in a flaming fire. No one can even keep warm, sitting by a fire that feeds only on straw. These are the fortunetellers you have done business with all of your life. But they don't know where they are going, and they can't save you.
Need I repeat that we have witches in Obama's cabinet and another who sat as a key leader in the House of Representatives and even had a satanist sit high up in the last administration?
All these things are hidden from the people who are steeped in their own vices and sin. God has blinded their eyes as well. Awaken bretheren! I give you charge in the name of God, awaken from your slumber and watch!
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
How important is that wedding garment?
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
Do you see how watching and your future salvation are inextricibly linked, especially in this hour?
Take Heed! This site is not here for your entertainment!
Here is your quiz for today. Who spoke these words to his countrymen?
By its decision to carry out the political and moral cleansing of our public life, the Government is creating and securing the conditions for a really deep and inner religious life. The advantages for the individual which may be derived from compromises with Islamic organizations do not compare in any way with the consequences which are visible in the destruction of our common religious and ethical values. The national Government sees in both Christian denominations the most important factor for the maintenance of our society. It will observe the agreements drawn up between the Churches and the provinces; their rights will not be touched. The Government, however, hopes and expects that the task of national and ethical renewal of our people, which it has set itself, will receive the same respect by the other side. The Government will treat all other denominations with objective and impartial justice. It cannot, however, tolerate allowing membership of a certain denomination or of a certain race being used as a release from all common legal obligations, or as a blank cheque for unpunishable behavior, or for the toleration of crimes. [The national Government will allow and confirm to the Christian denominations the enjoyment of their due influence in schools and education.] And it will be concerned for the sincere cooperation between Church and State. The struggle against the materialistic ideology and for the erection of a true people's community serves as much the interests of the German nation as of our Christian faith. ...The national Government, seeing in Christianity the unshakable foundation of the moral and ethical life of our people, attaches utmost importance to the cultivation and maintenance of the friendliest relations with the Holy See. ...The rights of the churches will not be curtailed; their position in relation to the State will not be changed.
I confess, I deleted one word and changed another, but you get the gist. Who uttered these words? Know your history or you will repeat it.
