And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision,
and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth it. (Hab 2:2)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
This looks to be a major breach as there is enough data to counterfeit up to 10 million customer accounts.
Central American Leaders Meet For Drug Legalization Summit
In a historic meeting in Antigua, Guatemala, Saturday, three Central American heads of state attended a regional summit to discuss alternatives to the current drug prohibition regime, which has left their countries wracked by violence. No consensus was reached and three other regional leaders failed to attend, but for the first time, regional heads of state have met explicitly to discuss ending the war on drugs as we know it. - Stop The Drug WarInteresting development. More links here. The IISS also has a piece that is worth the read. The US has taken an approach that is surprisingly non-hostile, at least in public. They have agreed to listen to the leaders who are meeting on this critical issue. Leaders in this part of the world see the current War on Drugs as largely a failure. It isn't working. In fact, it really has just kept law enforcement busy, the jails full and the drug barons rich and unleashed a wave of violence in America that the US government refuses to adequately track.
What these leaders are really doing is saying this: America, you are really the problem here. You re the biggest consumer of the product and yet you want us to turn our streets upside down to prevent a high demand product in your own nation. Thus the trend towards legalization is a real one born out of many years of failures and billions of dollars of money spent on drug interdiction and criminal enforcement.
I have long advocated, if not decriminalization, then a much more lenient approach. Decriminalization is best, but that may not be possible. But if it were, think about how you could.
1) Tax it and help state with their budget shortfalls.
2) Save money on incarceration of non-violent drug offenders
3) Drive down the price (and profits) when it becomes legal, dis-incentivizing the whole dope business model.
4) Monitor who is using mind altering substances and use the information to get them help them or prevent them from getting jobs that could seriously harm public safety (bus drivers, Airplane pilots, Doctors, etc). Not in an Orwellian way, but to get folks help who need it and help de-stigmatize those who have trouble with drugs.
No, legalization is no panacea, but history has shown us through the prohibition act of the 1920's and 30's that criminalization of a forbidden substance is something that drives up the price and profit and becomes a magnet for criminal gangs to step in and fill demand. I think a careful real look at the issue in its entirety will show that careful legalization is the best bet.
No, I DO NOT advocate the use of illegal drugs. Christians should not use them, period. While the Bible is silent on drug abuse a careful word study on the word translated as 'sorcery' in the book of Revelation shows that it is something that we must avoid if we are to see life eternal.
China's Power Struggle:
From G5332; medication (“pharmacy”), that is, (by extension) magic (literal or figurative): - sorcery, witchcraft.
Found in Revelation 9:21; 18:23 and Galatians 5:20
As far as legal drugs are concerned (medicines) I will be silent except to observe that it is by those sorceries that all the nations were deceived. How about drugs that are specifically designed to alter the brain chemistry? What is the most widely prescribed type of drug in America? Find out. Anti-Depressants, anti-psychotic drugs. These things alter they way the brain functions. How many distracted, 'out of touch' people do you see everyday? Distracted drivers, adults who cannot control their emotions or thoughts? Suicide rates for kids are skyrocketing when they now are being prescribed these drugs? What is the Devil's MO? To steal KILL and destroy.
And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
I will not belabor this because whatever is coming out into the media is mostly speculation with I am sure some well placed leaks into cyberspace by our leaders. What is happening from all we can all gather is that a very serious power struggle between factions within China is underway. This appears to be between primarily those whom the MSM call 'reformers'; those who seek to keep China on the free market path and the Princelings; those who still revere the 'Red' revolution and seek to use its example for the future or as an excuse to engage in various moves in their own political realm. Each can really be called reformists. One seeks to reform the economy along free market lines, and the other seeks to reform what they perceive are mistakes made in the Free market example and a loss of the original mission of the CCP. When the west talks of reformers, they look at it from western eyes. I think the real question is , how do ordinary Chinese view them? Where do ordinary Chinese come down on the issue? Those in the Cities, those in Rural areas? Ethnic minorities? While we tend to focus on the leaders I think what is underestimated is the enormous number of Chinese that the state must control and the harsh and draconian measures that keep the people in check. The Chinese are paranoid about their people and move very, very quickly to pre-empt public displays of discontent. This is one reason why you have seen so little about it in the news in China.
CNN has an exceptional article here, that should not be missed. A look at Bo's anti-Corruption crackdown can be found here. A look at China's Local Tyrant's can be found here. Dead UK businessmen accused of being a spy? The level of intrigue is very deep. Me? Before I do a long piece on this I am going to have to sort through some stuff and ask some questions, collate, cogitate... etc. When I get around to that... you'll see more. One thing you want to keep in mind is that corruption in China is very, very deep and moves against it are going to win you a whole host of powerful enemies.
America And The Plight Of Christians In The Middle East
Was it a conscious policy of the United States or a tragic mistake that led to such gruesome results? And why is the same mistake repeated in other countries, such as Egypt or Syria, where the US often supports the anti-Christian, religiously intolerant movements? The answers could be summed up as "conscious ignorance." - AINA
Destroy All Churches!
Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Saudi Grand Mufti, recently issued a statement declaring that “it is necessary to destroy all churches” in the region of Kuwait.
The leader’s statement supported a law to be drafted by a member of Kuwaiti legislature, which calls for the removal of all churches in Kuwait. The ruling is based on the hadith, or Islamic saying, that “there are not to be two religions in the [Arabic] Peninsula,” and therefore Islam should be the only practiced religion. - Christian Freedom International
Tell me this man, the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, does not sound like he is a member (or covert leader) of Al Qaeda. As this article points out, The Grand Mufti is also the leading religious figure among Saudi based Salafi Muslims. You know, the same Salifsts who celebrated the death of the Coptic Pope? Yeah... those guys. The ones who came out on cue during those revolts in the Arab world to call for Islamic law, killing Christians and dragging the Arab world to the glories and intellectual backwardness of the 7th Century.
If the President is working hard to bring in alternative energy and holding big oil at arms length then that is the correct policy. Being dependent on a nation like Saudi Arabia where this kind of evil is not only tolerated, but encouraged is a major National Security threat, in my opinion. The President's greening of the Pentagon is a very good idea, not just for the sake of future prices and environment, but also because America must free itself from its dependence on oil, especially foreign oil. We have got into bed with the devil himself all because our leaders, especially in the Bush administration, refused to deal forcefully with this problem and rather, exacerbated it with tax breaks and wars that were designed to keep us in the devil's grasp.
We must free ourselves of our dependence on foreign oil and Green Tech, domestic oil exploration (with a strong eye towards environmental concerns) and reduced consumption here at home. We cannot dilly-dally about and talk about what needs to happen in 2020. Rather we need to get moving rapidly towards energy independence now.
The rise of this Islamic beast is foretold in your scriptures.
Saudi Human Rights Activist To Fight Travel Ban
Wahleed Abu Al-Khair was to attend a six-week course in NY on Democracy and Syracuse University. The Saudi's, virulent enemies of Democracy and freedom did not like this and banned him (proabably illegally even under Saudi Law) from Travelling. Human Rights Watch has a piece here.Muslims Are Turning To Christ

Obama Escalates Drone War In Yemen
Killing innocents and our support of a dictatorship; these are among the factors that are driving the people into Al Qaeda's arms and not vice versa spurring a serious recruitment drive in Yemen.
Are our policy makers really so blind as to not see what they are doing? Are they really that myopic? Can anyone really be that dumb? My guess is that our policy is once again beholden to the Saudi's who border Yemen and are very concerned about the revolution spreading to the Kingdom.
House Kills Bill Preventing Employers Demanding Facebook Passwords

Secret Vote Opens Obamacare Decision
Will they overturn it? Will they just kick out the individual mandate and keep the rest like the expansion of Medicare? Will they declare the whole thing Uunconstititional? Who knows, and we won't, not 'til June. I would be saddened if they threw out the whole thing as the Medicaid expansion is not a bad idea, in theory. The problem with the way it is being done is that there really is no money for it. It will be done once again with borrowed money (despite howls of protest to the contrary) in a situation where our debt situation is already most precarious. Am I in favor of Mediaid expansion for the poor? Yes... IF you can pay for it (without additional borrowing) and not just kick the can down the road and not pass on a majority of costs on to the states, which is what many states are contending. Already reeling from massive deficits, this is not some political ploy, but a matter of real dollars and cents.
I have and always will advocate for the poor man and I really like Medicaid's expansion, especially in these times... IF you can pay for it. If you can't, then frankly it needs to go but we must not stop and do nothing, but find a better way to deliver these services to poorer Americans. Not with threats and unfunded mandates, but with getting to the taproot of the real problem. Which is the COST and PRICE of health care in America. These are powerful lobbying interests the President does not want to cross and why even if Obamacare becomes law, will be one big massive failure when those states who say they will participate, will have to renig and say 'we can't afford it'. It is one thing to say you like it to placate voters, quite another to pay for it. Most of these guys are just telling you what they think you want to hear, not unlike our President's Campaign promises; well tailored 'fictions' (a nice word for what they really were) to get your vote.
Look at California, they are in serious trouble fiscally. yet promise to enact Obamacare. With what money? Is this just a political ploy to garner support for the Democratic President? I ask again.. with what money? Where are they going to get it from? The schools? The roads? Hospitals? Raise taxes yet again, driving people and business out of the state?
Opium filled dreams of a utopian future with 'health care for all' do not come to pass without the money to pay for it. There is always a hard come down when one inhales political opium and the promises of Obamacare are just that. They sound good, like you are riding on a cloud...
...until you do the math.
Have your budget guys been tested for drugs, Mr. President and warned that 'creative accounting' is not allowed in Federal budget projections?
It doesn't look like it to me.
Several published reports indicate that top Israeli decisionmakers now are seriously considering whether to order a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, and if so, when. Twice in Israel’s history, it has conducted air strikes aimed at halting or delaying what Israeli policymakers believed to be efforts to acquire nuclear weapons by a Middle Eastern state—destroying Iraq’s Osirak reactor in 1981 and a facility the Israelis identified as a reactor under construction in Syria in 2007. Today, Israeli officials generally view the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran as an unacceptable threat to Israeli security—with some viewing it as an existential threat. This report analyzes key factors that may influence current Israeli political decisions relating to a possible strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. These include, but are not limited to, the views of and relationships among Israeli leaders; the views of the Israeli public; U.S., regional, and international stances and responses as perceived and anticipated by Israel; Israeli estimates of the potential effectiveness and risks of a possible strike; and responses Israeli leaders anticipate from Iran and Iranian-allied actors—including Hezbollah and Hamas—regionally and internationally.
For Congress, the potential impact—short- and long-term—of an Israeli decision regarding Iran and its implementation is a critical issue of concern. By all accounts, such an attack could have considerable regional and global security, political, and economic repercussions, not least for the United States, Israel, and their bilateral relationship. It is unclear what the ultimate effect of a strike would be on the likelihood of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. The current Israeli government, President Barack Obama, and many Members of Congress have shared concerns about Iran’s nuclear program. They appear to have a range of views on how best to address those shared concerns. Iran maintains that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful, civilian energy purposes, and U.S. intelligence assessments say that Iran has not made a decision to build nuclear weapons. However, Iran continues to enrich uranium in militarily hardened sites and questions remain about its nuclear weapons capabilities and intentions.
Short- and long-term questions for Members of Congress to consider regarding a possible Israeli decision to strike Iranian nuclear facilities militarily might include, but are not limited to, the following:
• How might an Israeli strike affect options and debate regarding short-term andThis report has many aspects that are the subject of vigorous debate and remain fully or partially outside public knowledge. CRS does not claim to independently confirm any sources cited within this report that attribute specific positions or views to various U.S. and Israeli officials.
long-term U.S. relations and security cooperation with, and foreign assistance to,
Israel and other regional countries?
• Would an Israeli strike be considered self-defense? Why or why not? What would
be the legal and policy implications either way?
• How might a strike affect the implementation of existing sanctions legislation on
Iran or options and debate over new legislation on the subject?
• How might Congress consult with the Obama Administration on and provide
oversight with respect to various political and military options?
Syria: Muslim Brotherhood Reborn
Unlike its parent organization, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which often kept its ideological opponents at arm's length, the SMB has repeatedly forged alliances with secular dissident groups even as it secretly tried to negotiate a deal with the Assad regime to allow its return from exile. Since the moderation of its political platform over the past two decades has clearly been intended to facilitate this triangulation, it does not tell us much about the ultimate intentions of the Syrian Brotherhood.
No Records Of Osama's Death
Is he dead? I have long had my doubts. Osama was a prize intelligence target and a wealth of information could have been gotten from him. Did they tell us he was dead so they could interrogate him and if he died during it, no one would be the wiser? Think about it. Every piece of information we were given (buried at sea where no retrieval is possible, no pictures, no video) were designed to keep any hard evidence of his death out of our hands. We have only the oft broken word of our President and intelligence community that he is. Is he dead? I do not know, I certainly have some very strong doubts.
Like I'd wager even money that he isn't.
Comast's New Service Bypasses Bandwidth Caps
This is not a little issue, let me explain. Strange that a few years ago, Comcast was whining about excessive bandwidth use of its customers and instituted bandwidth caps. Now suddenly those caps don't matter.... if you subscribe to their TV service. Look they can cut you off for a year if you blow past the data caps. ONE YEAR. No phone (for many with IP phones) no access to your banking and bill data (via email), no (legally mandated) notification from your creditors (if you signed up for electronic notifications like bills and TOS). So, this is not a little issue as the big corporations would try and make it sound. Cutting people of the net like this should be a crime. These guys are making lots and lots of money, so its not like bandwidth is driving them into a losing business model. Mobile service, caps are understandable in some cases, but still, many are making money hand-over-fist. This is just a large corporation (and others) using its power (and the lack of competition in many markets) as leverage to eventually get into your wallet with what has increasingly become an essential service. Could you imagine your electric company cutting you off for using too much electricity? "Sorry Mr. Jones, you used $120 of electricity this month, we will cut you off for a year". Of your gas company? "Sorry Grandma Moses, you used $150 worth of gas in the dead of winter, we are going to cut you off for a year. Better reach into the closet and get that moth eaten blanket..."Panetta Plays 911 Broken Record To Sell Afghan War Plan
Net neutrality is very important for these reasons and more. But these large Telecom behemoths want power. The power to control what you watch, who you talk to and what you buy. Can you imagine a day when your ISP could keep you from Netflix, or Amazon.com, or Target, or Bank of America, or your local utility company? Net neutrality keeps that from happening. Take that away, and they can swear up and down they they won't do it, but there would be no law that could prevent them. What would that mean? Simple, eventually they would start using that power against consumers. '"You want to shop and Amazon.com? Sorry, we dont't allow that, but you can come to your special CAMCOST shop instead where you'll find everything you want at bloated, unreasonable prices..." Then you can argue over the phone till you blue in the face with some guy from Asia who speaks broken English.
Its why the telecoms are fighting so hard to get Net Neutrality overturned. They want total control over what you read, buy and who you interact with on the net. If the government wanted to really get involved to stop this, they could. Trust me on this one Comcast and the government work much closer together than you know. Why did it take 5 days+ for me to get connected to the internet in 2011 (after I had all equipment set up and ready) when it took 30 minutes in the pre-911 world... using the same ISP? There is no reason why a quiet word from the 'top' couldn't put a stop to these practices. Why? They see a connected and informed populace as a threat (despite all the words they may make on the campaign trail) and want to keep their tyrannical 'options' open.
All that being said, 250gb is not unreasonable for a cap. It really isn't. I spend a lot of time on the net and I rarely go over 60-70GB a month. A large family though might have problems with it and there is no way around it (you cannot buy additional bandwidth.) So for some this is a problem. Those who may video teleconference a lot into work, watch a lot of HD movies or run a SMB from home.
Food for thought.
No concern for what the nation wants, it's all about what HE wants. This is all part of a terminal disconnect our leaders have with the ordinary man on the street. They just don't care. They know they can 'throw the dogs a bone' at election time and go on doing whatever they want to do, even if it is clearly NOT in the national interests (like installing Al Qaeda into Libya). This is the quintessential 'arrogance of power' we are seeing in American leadership; armed to the teeth, as proud as Lucifer, as dumb as a rock and crazy as Hannibal Lecter.FBI Taught To Bend And Break Law, Codified Racism In Manuals
The FBI taught its agents that they could sometimes “bend or suspend the law” in their hunt for terrorists and criminals. Other FBI instructional material, discovered during a months-long review of FBI counterterrorism training, warned agents against shaking hands with “Asians” and said Arabs were prone to “Jekyll & Hyde temper tantrums.” - Wired
When Criminals run our law enforcement, Crime reigns supreme. Have we seen any major swindles go by with the FBI sitting around like nothing happened? This is what has happened to American Federal law enforcement; it has stopped enforcing the law and uses its immunity from prosecution to break it.
What is sad is that there are many good and honorable people in the FBI. It is the people at the political level (voted in by Americans) who have made a mess of it.
SCOTUS Weighs Health Care Law
There is a bundle of articles out there. The Justices asked some pointed questions. Most of all can be paraphrased in 'where does it all end' if the government can force you to buy this, what else can they make you buy? Weather you agree with the the Health Care law or not; Health Reform or not, this portion alone should give any reasonable person serious pause regarding the individual mandate. This is truly a fundamental change (as one Justice put it) in the way the government interacts with the people... telling you you must buy something. Will they make you buy a cell phone? Internet access? A beach house? A Maserati, A Confederate flag? A nuclear fall out shelter? None of these questions seems to dawn on those who have not stopped to really think this through. It's passage is a signal to every major corporation in America that with enough lobbying power you can get the government to make people buy your products. Ours is supposed to be a government of limited powers, not ALL power. And that is a point one of the Justices made during the hearing. Too many think this Health Care bill is a solution to their problems, even to those well insured. I can tell you of a certainty it isn't, in fact, their troubles may be just beginning. It is just the beginning because Health Care costs are skyrocketing and there is no end in site. What are you going to do when those costs take away half of your take home pay? If Obamacare is codified and nothing is done to reign in costs, that is exactly what will happen. Can't pay? Tough... you will pay anyway, so says the mandate. Obama was able to co-opt many by putting in some 'carrots' early on for 'breakfast' that took effect right away (like keeping kids on a parents insurance till they are older than before), getting support of those with older kids who didn't or won't read the fine print and delaying the 'dung' in the bill for 'dinner' in 2014.
Dear readers, we are not talking about some $20 a month, but for some who are older hundreds of dollars a month. Click over and see. What happens when you lose your job as millions already have? Cobra? Seen the payments on that?! Older Americans who lose work? What will it cost them? Look I am all in favor of Health Care reform. I really, really am. I can only applaud the President for attempting to address it. But I can only castigate him for doing it on the back of those who are most vulnerable. The rich have the money, the poor, working guy does not. What really angers me was and is his unwillingness to deal with the costs (profits) of the major medical conglomerates who make drugs and sell them at a hefty profit. He refused to allow Generics in any large number, taking the issue 'off the table' in order to get the support (and money) of the drug makers. He swells up the rolls of the Insurance companies (with the mandate) increasing their profits in order to gain their support. Everyone was heard and accommodated EXCEPT the ordinary working guy or gal. He even provided waivers to large Corporations so they don't have to comply with his plans. How do you get a waiver? Let me guess...
I think Obamacare should be re-written from scratch. Get together with State Governors and Health Care proffestionals who not only work with the rich and middle class, but also with those who have much less, relax some of the over-regulation in the industry, give serious tax breaks to smaller clinics who cater to the poor and allow them to have their own insurance plans for considerably less. Work to bring down costs for all. That is what is killing us. There would not be such a hue and cry in the land if they Health Care costs were reasonable. They aren't...
And neither is Obamacare's individual mandate.

This is pretty wicked when you think bout it. This is what corruption in high places will do. People use the power of the state to destroy the competition.In these days of rising food prices and famine, this is truly evil. But I look for more wickedness in high places only to grow and Americans dumb themselves down and head off to polls in November. We saw the same things with the milk and raw food raids last year. Destroy food, the thing needed to sustain life? What spiritual entity is behind this?

In some cases, this has gone unrecognized because elements of the Axis alliance remain relatively obscure to most observers. Ethnic groups nursing grievances, many of them in territories created through the collapse of the European imperial order, allied with the Axis and faced retribution when the Allies achieved a battlefield victory.

Did you know they regularly execute Christians for the crime of believing in Christ and preaching the Gospel?
Not a good sign for Egypt's Christians. The verbal vitriol aimed at Egypt's Christians shows a deep hatred for God and his people. These Salafists are no laughing matter and they seemed to have been poised and positioned for the revolutions that took place across the Arab world. The well heeled interests who were really behind those non-spontaneous revolutions clearly had their plan all laid out... and it wasn't for 'freedom and democracy' but for Islam, extremism and the extermination of Christians.
The Coptic Pope had been threatened many times before and tried to bring peace and like the prince if peace, they murdered him instead.

Markets May Rise But So Might Inflation
... I believe the market perception of ongoing liquidity abundance played a greater role in the marketplace than actual new central bank liquidity. Policymakers still enjoy the capacity to incite dramatic market rallies. It has, however, reached the point where markets require stunning policy measures - and it remains less than clear that resulting elevated market prices can be sustained....
...There’s a lot I don’t know; here’s what I think I know: after last year’s dramatic loosening of financial conditions (recall that U.S. deficit reduction was at one point actually becoming an important issue), the predominantly government finance-driven U.S. economy has attained (in my nomenclature) “an increasingly robust inflationary bias.” While systemically distorted from egregious Washington fiscal and monetary excess, many fundamental factors (i.e. spending, GDP, corporate profits, etc.) are for now likely to support the bullish thesis. At the same time, global economies from Europe to China are increasingly vulnerable to the downside of Credit Bubble dynamics. - Doug Noland

The Muslim Persecution Of Christians February, 2012 (updated URL!)
An awful lot happening on this front in stories that never get into the mainstream.
Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions, "Muslim Persecution of Christians" was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month. It serves two purposes:
1) Intrinsically, to document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
2) Instrumentally, to show that such persecution is not "random," but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.

Smoking Gun Emerges In Corazine Saga
In essence evidence emerges that they took money that did not belong to them to cover a shortfall but it still might be legal. If this is really the way these guys opeate, no ones money is safe. If I had a few million dollars in any brokerage account (stocks/commodities), I would pull it out and keep it out until all this gets sorted out. More here at the NYT.Obama Uses Debt Collectors To Get Student Loans
I have long said that Wall Streets main business models is to find a legal way to steal your money. Who got the short end? Farmers and ranchers. Why would I pull my money out if I had a brokerage account? Because if they did this today, they can do it tomorrow. The scam will have been codified into law with Congress' expected inaction. I am not the only one saying it. Some farmers are saying the same thing.
“I have no confidence in the market, because it could happen at any other brokerage,” Rietzke told Reuters from his 8,000 acre ranch near the southwest Kansas town of Coldwater. - Factor Research
It is also creating a tax nightmare for them because they still do not know how much money they made last year as this article points out.
Has the President offered to help Farmers who were scammed by this best friend and top campaign contributor?
This is just one of the many reasons why I could never vote for Obama. He goes after the struggling poor man but lets his buddies Like Corazine and Immelt haul away billions (hundreds of Billions) of dollars. It is why I am against his health care mandate. It falls on the poor man who can barely pay his rent. Right now, they haven't figured it out but will in 2014 when the madate kicks in. How are you going to afford Heatth insurance on a $20k dollar a year salary when (as in the linked article) Obama is turning his Debt Collectors loose on you to soak you of $219 a month? This man's mathematics is seriously askewed and always favors the rich, the white and the privilged. His actions shows us that clearly he just does not care.
He talks like he cares for the poor man, but his actions say otherwise.
Obama's Budget Priorities In Pictures
In Billions of dollars (Ed figures for 2011 budget)
Remember, that is just the GE's bailout. Total bailouts were in the Trillions of dollars! No one knows if or when any of these entities will every pay back their loans. They sure aren't paying any taxes, unlike our student friend who is getting bilked by the Feds. The Fed is keeping the info secret on who if anyone pays back their no interest loans. But the President is sure going after the students who can't find decent work.Is there a relationship between GE and Obama.
The only major accomplishment of this administration these past three years has been to facilitate trillions of dollars in swindles from the Pubic Treasury into the hands of the rich and infamous and rake the poor man over the coals.
EU Court: Gay Marriage Not A Human Right
A surprising decision, given the times. In other related news, Madonna is fighting the mayor of St. Petersburg who signed a law baning gay propaganda. Madonna, who is a worshiper of Baphomet is surely showing us who is really behind all of this gay propaganda and what spirit is really behind all these stars. Poke around the net. The Devil promises fame, wealth and power to those who serve him. Even Christ was tempted by Satan with these things.
And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.War Ravaged Chechnya Shows Stunning Rebirth
There is a very clear rise in satan worship and a love of all things occult that has taken the Western world by storm. Is this talked about in the Bible?
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: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
Lots of money has been invested to bring Chechnya out of the cycle of violence that typified it no so many years ago. Keep in mind that the Chechen's are predominantly Islamic and have been known to employ terrorism for their political goals
Christian Therapist: Churches Refuse To Talk About Sin
Churches are doing their parishioners and a lost world a grave disservice when they do not talk about sin. Christianity... our job is to lead men to Christ and into life eternal, not hold their hands while they walk into hell. There is just too much political correctness and 'touchy-feely' nonsense in the Churches today. The gospel.. the whole gospel is not being preached.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
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. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
We cannot soft peddle the 'sin' thing. People come to Church for spiritual healing and there can be no healing if there is no repentance and no repentance without people knowing what sin is and just what God thinks of it. When a Church does not preach the whole Gospel it becomes a false Church and false teacher. It is why Christianity is dying in America now, few have really been able rightly divide the word of God without fear or respect of persons.

Shell Signs Gas Production Deal With China
There is so much going on in China these days that it would really take a lot of time to go over. As I mentioned last week there is a major power struggle underway in China. In other China energy news, Kora is considering an undersea pipeline via China to link up with the North. It was released out to the major media that China's economy is far more riddled with Corruption that we have been led to believe and the numbers are astronomical, estimates go as high as 42%! The Maoist revival in China appears to be over as many sites that once trumpeted it are now gone. This has everything to do with the ouster of Bo Xilai (I talked about further down the page) and the Critics of Wen have been silenced. Bo started many reforms, hit out at corruption and keep the economy humming very nicely. But a new generation of leaders do not like his model with has been identified with the 'left'. How real is the struggle? Very real and you can tell by the measures Beijing is taking to reign in 'speculation'. There have even been unconfirmed reports of gunfire in downtown Beijing. The WSJ has an interesting piece here. And there have been many coup rumors (more here) that have been quickly silenced by the Chinese. As the WSJ article points out, Chinese Citizens are looking for answers and are using some unusual techniques to get around the Chinese Censors.California Starts Process To Make Possession A Misdemenor
What is my take? Too early to say but I think there is a very serious power struggle going on behind the scenes whose outcome is not determined and may not be for some time. Reform and corruption, (an interesting little article here can be in Chinese) as well as concern on how to deal with China's coming economic downturn, overheated real estate and banks with shoddy assets, dwindling exports (as evidenced by a rare trade deficit), . foreign investment... you name it. I think the fault lines are pretty deep. I think these are some of the major areas of policy disconnects.An interesting scholarly piece can be found here.

The measure, Senate Bill 1506, would make the possession of any controlled substance -- except up to an ounce of marijuana, which is already decriminalized -- a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail. Under current law, possession of controlled substances, such as heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine, is a felony punishable by either up to 16 months in county jail or two to three years in state prison.
The Muslim Persecution Of Christians February, 2012
An awful lot happening on this front in stories that never get into the mainstream.Immelt, Jobs, Obama And Posturing
Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions, "Muslim Persecution of Christians" was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month. It serves two purposes:
1) Intrinsically, to document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
2) Instrumentally, to show that such persecution is not "random," but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.
Jobs is the focus and it is all smoke and mirrors. Who is this Immelt guy? Pretty big potatoes. He can go and get hundreds of Billions in loans from the government that you and I cannot get. Has he paid them back? Is he ever going to pay them back? Did they pay taxes?
And these are Obama's buddies, rich, white, privileged and taking American to the cleaners. Now you know why Obama gets positive coverage on MSNBC... it's owned by Immelt!
Just keep on handing out that free money Barak Baby and my TV network'll love ya!!!

Witnesses Say They Were Threatened Before Afghan Massacre
Other stories leaking out from investigations done by non-US investigators say that there was more than one person involved in the massacre. According the US, this guy sneaked out of camp all alone at night and no one saw or stopped him. But eyewitnesses say that not only were more men involved but that one woman may have been raped. I cannot dismiss nor confirm these stories as they may be put into the media for political purposes. But it seems strange to me that this one man can basically go about and do all this damage and no one saw, stopped or questioned where he was going all by himself in the dead of night. The 'lone nut' story frankly seems a little too pat and convenient and serves a very tense political situation to well to be believed on its face.Series of Explosions Rock Iraq On Anniversary
NSA Denies Ability To Spy On Americans
To which I say... bull-oney! Clearly they are going to let this guy off the hook which means that behind the scenes an agreement was reached to let this guy bend what little truth is left in the US government and get the people to be fooled once again. Let us not forget that Obama when still a Senator, helped provide the immunity from prosecution for these CRIMINAL acts (the domestic spying that we are now told isn't happening) done by our government, breaking the first of many of his campaign promises. The fact is, they think Americans are retarded and can't remember past last night. But if perjury has become acceptable in Congress, why bother to have hearings?
They are probably right. Like this article today from the Mail says with regards to the UK's latest Hitlerian moves... Spies lie, its part of their job. When you are building a high-tech tyranny, you have to lie to the people while you are building it and hope they don't find out until its too late.
Does the NSA spy on Americans?

A very small step in the right direction. I never saw abortion rights as a 'womans rights' issue and still don't. If abortion is 'right', then every person on death row should be let free for they too are murderers. But the devil has gone to great lengths to frame mass murder as a 'rights' issue. There are too many ways to avoid getting pregnant in the first place for this to still be such an epidemic. Abortion is an abomination and one that God will require at this nations hands as well as of leaders who support this wickedness for a few votes.
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Linux, Windows, AMD And...
These days there is a lot going on in the technology realm. Big changes are happening behind the scenes. Ones that can solidify the power of monopolies over smaller competitors and and opensource software. These things may seem like small potatoes to the regular reader but they are trends that can and will, if continued, drive up the price of your computer very significantly, put considerably more money in the hands of monopolies and secret cartels all the while giving you less, or no choice as to what you use on your home computer and making you vulnerable to very serious cybercrime and one day... persecution. They will also use that power of monopoly to cripple your computer from keeping it from doing the things you want to do and paid for it to do. Let's start with something that most folks know nothing about, but will help solidify Microsoft's massive monopoly and drive other PC operating systems off the computer.
When Windows 8 gets released, it will come with a new boot loader called UEFI. Your BIOS will be history because every Windows 8 Computer will (as a matter of compulsion) have UEFI boot loader. Is this a problem? No. The problem comes when UEFI, as Microsoft has done, makes it a 'Secure UEFI' which means that without certain encryption keys, no other operating system but Microsoft will be able to load on ANY Windows 8 PC. Once manufacturers like Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, etc begin putting Windows 8 on their Computers, Windows will be the only OS people will be able to use on a PC that was built with Windwos Pre-installed (about 99% of all PC's) MS claims that this move is supposed to make the OS more 'secure' keeping out root kits and viruses. But this is hardly credible. Why? First off, Windows viruses, malware, ransomware and crimeware do not typically infest the bootloaders but yes, some can be stopped dead I their tracks with Secure Boot. Most however just sit on the hard drive stealing our deleting data from the unsuspecting. Second, it is Microsoft and Microsoft alone which has been plagued with viruses, rootkits, malware and some very nasty crimeware that appears to have been consciously 'allowed' onto their OS by individuals at MS. One major security vendor (whose software was and is on a great many PC's) somehow got tied in with Organized Crime Groups in Mexico and were using a key MS component to steal data and money from the unsuspecting MS customer. For years folks warned that this was going on and for years the Justice Department did nothing. Thankfully, this finally stopped but it took some serious Federal moves after some very unlikely folks mentioned it in passing and word got to the White House that this was happening (it did not appear that they even knew... some one did not want them to know). Finally the Justice Department were forced to to get off their self-satisfied, lazy, backsides. But there were many, many victims who never got anything for the money that was stolen. But my sources make intimated that certain individuals at MS were involved in facilitating this particular vulnerability.
But one look at the kinds of security bugs that are revealed on a regular basis at Microsoft and it appears that Windows is plagued with these kinds of vulnerabilities. It is a massive corporation whose software is everywhere, on highly classified US computer systems, sensitive financial systems, safety and utility systems. It is hard not to see a very serious threat with one sole corporation having this much power and (according to my well placed sources) the demonstrated ability to allow others to plant malware into their OS for financial gain. Keep this in mind, the vast, vast majority of malware, viruses, and rootkits and other criminal programs are all Microsoft based and only hit Microsoft systems.
So I ask this question? How is forcing off other operating systems (like Linux) from PC's using UEFI secure boot going to make computing more secure? The straightforward answer is simple; it isn't. Though as mentioned before some kinds of boot-ware, and rootkits will be stopped dead in their tracks with the new boot loader. But in some ways, this is going to make it considerably less secure for those who presently use other operating systems which have a long standing track record of security, because it is going to force them to get into the Windows matrix and compel them to become what I will call 'sitting ducks' to those who write crimeware for windows. They will be forced to use Microsoft's OS which has many new problems on the security front found every month and much of it are viruses, malware, adware, crimeware, etc. So why is MS doing this? This should be pretty clear. It seems clear to me and much of the Linux community that part of the reason this is being done to seriously undermine the slowly growing Linux platform and solidify its monopoly over the PC. Over and over again MS has shown its true colors and our Justice Department does absolutely nothing to curtail the behemoth's actions. Please note that I do not use the term monopoly lightly, they are a Monopoly and this is exactly what the Federal Courts ruled many years ago.
So what does this mean? It means that unless two things happen Linux is going to slowly die on the Desktop. What are those things? First off Linux could find a workaround to this new 'Secure Boot' (or better named 'Windows Only Boot'). This is probably going to happen within a year or so, but such workarounds are often plagued with many other issues that do not always show up right away. Second, Hardware makers and PC vendors could always set up their computers to allow other OS's to boot, But this will require an extra step in the long chain of manufacture. Some, probably most will do it at first. Why? PC makers are sensitive, very sensitive to Microsoft's monopoly. They are dependent on MS and MS can be very heavy handed when dealing with PC makers. Think about it; MS is so powerful that no major PC maker dare put Linux on any desktop out of fear. Dell tried it and for some reason they have never adequately explained stopped. Lenovo does it but they are Chinese and have their own agenda. But they admit that Linux for the Netbook, is dead. You cannot walk into you local big box store and by a Linux computer. They don't sell them. Never have, never will. The masses (who by and large know little about what they are really buying) are being forced onto a monopoly's operating system that has and is plagued with some very serious security issues that are constantly popping up.
Listen when you have a monopoly like this criminals will want 'in', US intelligence agencies will want 'in', Foreign intelligence agencies will want 'in', corporate spies will want 'in'. That much money and that much power becomes a magnet for forces that consistently operate outside of the law. I am convinced that a recognizable percentage of the security issues we have seen with Windows are not there because of bad code writing or by accident, but by design. Many are just too specific in nature that allows for spying. The latest MS security vulnerability is with the Remote Desktop Protocol. This is the protocol that many US companies and corporations use when communicating with employees who are working from home or on the road. It turns out that this protocol was seriously flawed and allowed others to actually control another's computer. Let's say you work for a major Laboratory and you are working on a formula that has cost your company millions to develop. You dial into (what you think is) a secure connection to your employer, pass on your findings while traveling overseas. But what you don't know is that someone just got the whole shebang when you dialed in and is now out trying to sell your formula to your competitors. No one will know until your competitors develop your idea first without having to shell out a dime for R&D.
This security thing is much deeper than just keeping your email passwords safe, it has tremendous implications for every company that uses Microsoft products, and that is the vast majority of companies. One of my insider buddies called Microsoft Windows 'one big piece of malware'. What does he use? He uses the cheapest laptop he could find with only a single core processor, a dumbed down video card, and a uses XP for his OS. He refuses to use the Post 911 versions of Windows and for reasons of security, He just always recommends... keep XP don't switch. He has no problems with Linux, he just does not have time to learn it. I can understand that. The only thing he clued me on with the Linux Distro I use is this; He said it would be wiser to turn off auto-updates. He makes this plain not just for Linux but for any and all software and OS's. I think this as much for reasons of problems that seem to plague large updates (how many times have you updated your computer to find that something stopped working?). So that is what I do. When dealing with Open Source OS's you have to keep in mind you never know who controls these updates and what entities have been able to 'get to' key people to install some kind of crimeware onto your systems using the automatic updating mechanisms embedded into all operating systems. But with Linux, planting viruses and malware is pretty hard to do because of the way the kernel operates.
I am often asked why I spend so much time on security issues. Many folks just want me to cite scriptures, put on sack cloth and ashes and warn of the end of the world. Well, the end of this age is coming, sooner rather than later, but it is not here just yet. Indeed, I would caution my readers about those who constantly whip up others into fear about the end being neigh. Believe it or not, Christ warned us about the times we are in now and he said not to worry, the end is not yet (Matt 24:6-8). There are some important things that must happen first but only those who are awake and watching know what those things are and where to look. While we are here and are using the only tool out there that gives you anything remotely resembling news and truth out there, the Internet, we should be 'wise as serpent's on how we use it. It is a fantastic tool for teaching, exhorting, ministering and what I do in helping others to 'Watch', in these troubled times in order to assist and bless God's flock. But it is a tool that could be turned into a weapon against you if you are lax about security. Ask someone who has had their bank account cleaned out by cyber thieves or had their identity stolen or had their entire business destroyed because of Cybercrime facilitated by 'automatic updates'. Ask the Egyptian activists who were picked up and tortured for blogging during the revolution. These things all seem 'theoretical' and 'not relevant' until you are the victim and find out just how unconcerned US law enforcement really is when the potential criminal is sitting on top of a multi-billion dollar corporation that operates like a monopoly and donates generously to political campaigns.
So many of you ask, 'Why do I use Linux?; or 'why would anyone want to learn a new OS when my widows PC does everything I need it to do?' There are not many real reasons to do it for the ordinary person who is trusting, naïve and has cybersign stuck to their back that says 'kick me, rob me and make me poor'. You can't help people like that... just shake your head. But for those of us who like to watch our backs, the reason for using Linux are many. First off, is the question of security. Here is a brief article about this topic here. I will not elaborate, the article does a good job. The second is to support alternatives to a monopoly. Monopolies like MS do no one any good except the major stockholders. MS charges whatever it likes for its OS and you and me are beholden to them for the price of windows is built into every single PC sold in your Big Box stores and 90% of your online stores. It is in effect a government/corporate sponsored 'Tax'. Do I need to tell you what the man who founded Microsoft is doing with the money he makes off of you? Do you really want to put your money in this company? More here.
Third is the a fact that
really makes it appealing to folks like me; I do not have to pay for
software. Every piece of software on my computer is open-source, free
and exceptionally functional. Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice (now
LibreOffice), Kompozer, Chrome are all on Linux along with some other
lesser known software that is also quite good Like Konquerer,
Clementine, Amorok, Kontact, Koffice, Bibletime, I can watch movies
listen to tunes, encode mp3's. I can do everything I need to to with
Linux that I can do with Windows (except watch Netflix, but that is
changing and I use Roku for that anyway). What's more, 90% of the
Windows software out there can also run on Linux using a free
emulator. So in reality I have a wider choice of software and the
ones I use are all free. I like Free, especially if it works like I
paid for it and almost all of Linux' software meets or exceed
exceptions. So when I hear folks say, 'why go switch to Linux?'. I
have to ask them, why not? What is keeping you on a monopoly's
operating system that is plagued with security issues and whose
corporate ethic leaves much to be desired? I hear you weep and whine
about corporate crime and those evil rich corporations, so what are you
doing about it in your own
sphere? …. (blank face... dead silence....)
I can give a reasonable guess to answer that question. In most cases in personal computing it is just plain laziness or in fairness, time. The time it takes to learn a new OS is seen as a major drawback of Linux, the time it takes to learn to do things like system maintenance. One of my biggest complaints with Linux is each distribution's dependence on 'repositories' to get software or updates. Rather than the software maker making the appropriate piece of software available on their sites, they rely on each distributors of Linux to put it into their respective massive 'repositories'. This has its advantageous and disadvantages. First off repositories help people find software in one place when they are not that familiar with Linux. But the downside is that if the software is not in the repositories, it can be a bear it install or will not install correctly when you do find a zipped copy of a piece of software on the web. To its credit, Windows 'just works' right of the box and this is what attracts folks to Window (that and the fact that you have no choice when you bought your computer). Also those who don't know much about computing often rely on a family member or friend to help them fix things and those folks are are usually only familiar with Windows. The learning curve is part of the problem but these days, Linux has done a very good job at making things user friendly, easy to find. Also, the help you find in web forums is usually exceptionally good. Not a lot of techno gobbledygook, just straightforward step-by-step instructions.
I know most people will never try Linux until they get smacked down by some malware and it destroys their data, or steals sensitive personal info or goes to pay the rent and find the checking account cleaned out. Some folks only learn in the school of hard knocks, in the course named "Bumps and Bruises 101".
Another trend in computing I think of big importance is the trouble that AMD is having these days. I have always liked AMD but lets face it, they are not doing well on the desktop front. Their new Bulldozer processor is a good, very good, but it is not up to par with the upper end Intel processors and sadly, the price they are charging for it is prohibitive. Personally, I was waiting for it to come out had one all configured over at ComputerLX, Simply put Bulldozer, while an excellent CPU, is not competitive at current price points. In short, AMD has got some problems and if they do not get them solved may be looking for a buyout. That will be bad for consumers, especially if AMD gets out of the desktop and notebooks business. Why? It will leave Intel as the monopoly. Now what do you think that will do to prices? AMD has been competitive because they offered good CPU's are bargain basement prices for a long time they just could not keep up with demand. Take AMD away and you will one day see a 30-50% price spike in computers if it is taken out of the picture. Are there forces working to undermine competition in the marketplace? Are there forces who would love to have just one company to work with to put surveillance-ware in your computers and not have to deal with many different companies? I can answer that in an equivocal yes on that but must leave it there.
My point is a simple one.
Your software and operating systems are in many ways under assault by
forces you would not even believe if I told you. Corporations are
also under assault. Competitors to these new monopolies are under
assault. You are not hearing about it and I can assure you that you
won't hear about it. Or at least will not be given some important
context that will really open your eyes. But the threats are real and
growing. Know this; while the government is out 'protecting' key
cyber infrastructure, they are not
protecting you. In fact, they have
done a wonderful job at making you, the Windows PC consumer, very
vulnerable to attacks from all over the Globe from groups whose whole
reason for being is to mean you harm. Why isn't uncle Sam doing
something about it? They are, they are working night and day to give
cybercriminals the tools they need to get rich off of you. What kinds
of things are they doing? They can't tell you, but there
are those that know that are sounding the alarm bells to a
ditz-ified American populace. Secret courts? We have them here in the
Rulings? We have them here in the US. Well this much I know, the devil
loves secrecy and satanism flourishes in the darkness.
Our leaders have a vested interest in seeing to it that those vulnerabilities remain on your system for as long as possible for reasons that should be obvious. For my Christian readers who are out there let me make this clear to each of you.
They know who you are.
Long Term Jobless Not In Statistics, But Are Here To Stay
This is a 'paper' recovery not really supported by hard data, just the hot air in the MSM. Jobs are a major issue and those number bandied about the MSM are pure unadulterated propaganda. Well, for once, the MSM does not paper over the sever difficulties in this economy. But the real culprit that no one on either side of the aisle is going to deal with and one that the MSM will only cheerlead to continue? Globalization. The high paying jobs are moving away and many of the jobs making good money were based on a false prosperity that was included by mountains of borrowing. It was all debt based. Eventually the US will be forced to deal with some serious real cuts, one way or another. They will come and you will see major contractors forced to reduce their workforce. Why? Because right now, they are being paid with borrowed money. Money that we cannot even lend out at the rates we are paying so the Fed has to step in and essentially print it. This is fiscal insanity in anyones book but it is the road we are on.
This is not some thing that is going to happen in the distant future, we are already pushing a serious fiscal envelope with our deficit spending and the fact that many nations are working very, very hard to kick the dollar habit and doing a pretty good job at it would give wiser leaders some serious pause. Instead, they go and get their help to get elected President from those who can only be called 'Chinese Agents'. Is it any wonder we are in hoc to the tune of trillions to those who hate us?
Why are so many bankers jumping ship, leaving and otherwise being arrested? There appears to be a lot going on behind the scenes than meets the untrained eye. Hundreds of billions of dollars in bailouts to institutions that are technically insolvent both in the US and in the EU. Mysterious criminal activities going on, like billions on US Treasuries turning up that may or may not have been counterfeit and amazingly the Japanese men who were in possession of them are neither detained nor arrested. What you read that right, 134 billion in fake bonds and no one is arrested. The Destination of the bonds, what they were to be used for were not revealed. The Treasury is feigning being stumped. No questions asked by MSM and the story 'disappears' from the media. Look, bonds with a face value of 134 billion dollars the compounded interest at say 6% since 1934... that is a lot of money.
What kind of forces deal in Counterfeit bonds? How about Organized Crime? Do the Japanese have groups that deal in this area? Organized crime groups do not just haunt the bordello's and drug parlors in the 21st century. They go to where the money is and the money today is in international finance. The mafia of all stripes are big into international finance, the Italian Mafia, Japanese Mafia, Chinese Mafia (ubiquitously called Triads) as well as the Jewish Mafia (a very powerful and underrated group)... they are all deeply involved in Wall Street and the other major Financial capitals of the world. Their scams can at times be protected by the powerful as their ties often go into the covert portions of their respective nations governments. Sometimes those ties cross borders and take in more than one nation. How does this work? Let's just day for for arguments sake that these bonds were part of a plan to undermine the US dollar. I am not saying that it was, $134 Billion is a lot of money, but not enough to shake confidence in the dollar.. $6 trillion oh yes.. serious trouble. But let's say that this was just one shipment of a series that was designed to do just what we are seeing, Let's say that you have an organized group of 'interested parties' who have decided to work together to undermine the dollar. Let's say that some of them are deeply embedded into the Federal Reserve system in the form of being Primary Dealers of US Treasury notes. In such a scenario you would not only be looking at one group of Organized Criminals, but almost certainly carefully aligned groups with one or two major state's as a sponsor. Let's take a look and remember that the Japanese guys got away, no charges, no detention and who had backers powerful enough to keep their names out of the newspapers. Somehow these do not appear to be your ordinary 'gangsters'. Indeed, if one considers that there are foreign banks who are have privileges that most US banks have (as Primary Bond dealers) one can only wonder what is really going on here. Here is the list of Primary dealers of US Treasuries.
As of October 31, 2011 according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York the list includes:

Now we see a series of 'attacks' on the Vatican. First they were hit with a series of cyber attacks, then they got put on a money laundering list in the US, then they had a major leak documents that some say point to serious financial crime. Well, its a pretty serious scandal and JPMorgan has closed the Vatican's account because of a lack of transparency. What is the Vatican's response? The typical response fascist governments have been doing for years when their crimes are exposed, go after the person who exposes the crimes. They have threatened to punish the leaker's within the Vatican's own, medieval 'legal' system.
My take? Simple The Vatican has long had very, very serious problems with money laundering and financial crime. Do a search on 'Vatican bank', P2, Calvi, Marcinkus, 'Pope John Paul I'; You will get the encyclopedia. None of those problems were fixed. Not one. They only grew on the day they put the John Paul I in the ground after on 33 days in office. Folks, I could tell you some things that would really turn your stomach about the Vatican and how it makes money but truly, I could indeed put my life at serious risk if I did. I will only say that the Vatican's recent major scandals are more closely related than even the most perverse and twisted imagination could conjure up.
I will not go on and on about this today. I have talked long enough on this. You want some links?
The rot in the Vatican runs very, very deep and I do not exaggerate when I tell you this all tracks back to the WWII and that evil little Austrian man who took Germany to hell and killed 6 million Jews. My guess is that someone on 'this side of the pond' plans on using his enormous power in dealing with it one way or another. But just as likely a possibiliy is that some folks inside the Vatican had had enough with the wickedness that his hidden behind Papal and Cardinal Robes and they are striking back at the devils imps who live and work inside the Church.
Thousands Mourn Egyptian 'Pope's Death
Obama Claims Right To Seize Everything In America
Do you get the impression that Obama is preparing for something he is not telling you and me about? A couple of weeks ago they passed a bill outlawing protests anywhere near a Federal Building it is euphemistically dubbed the 'Trespass Bill'. Now they want the ability to seize just about anything (including you) in a time of emergency. Loan guarantee's to private banks is one section I found interesting (Part III).
But let's face it and get real. Our leaders need to plan for the worst. Nuclear terrorism; can it happen here? What would it look like? FEMA did a paper on this very recently. Given the fact that we have managed to acquire through many years of geopolitical bumbling a horde of enemies from every corner of the globe, such planning is only prudent. From what I can gather by skimming over the actual E.O., There is nothing in here that is so very much different from much older executive orders that are on the books.
But I certainly think there is much more to this than meets the eye. The trends in Global fascism (Corporate-Government partnerships coupled with a brutal surveillance state) is what all of the recent moves our leaders in the west and in China are working towards, full steam ahead. Economies collapsing, currencies in turmoil and yet the people seem to be in some kind of daze as to what this all means to them. They have not yet put two and two together and got four. These fascist moves are all there to prepare us for a collapse, turmoil and a new from of Global governance that is coming... the Bible makes it perfectly crystal clear and will last for 42 months.
Understanding Biblical Zionism
A good video (sermon) on the topic that shows you God's constancy to the people if Israel. It shows that no matter what, God keeps his promises. After 3 Millenimum since God made the promise to Abraham, God kept his world and the Jews are back in the Holy Land. Let us Christians not shrink from the term Zionism, for there is a biblical Zionism that is every true believers hope. Today, modernism, Islamism and satanism (in all its secret forms) seeks to destroy Israel and the people God has gathered out of the nations. Why? Because of the promise that has shown God to be true to his word. But know this brethren, God did not forget about the Arab peoples as they too were included IN THE PROMISE.
And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year. And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.
It is only as the False Prophet has spread his religion in the world that seeks to kill, terrorize, steal from and murder the Jews (seed of Issac). It is as old a conspiracy as the fall of Lucifer, none of us should be surprised. The Jewish people have paid a hefty price for their former rebellion they were driven out of the holy land and their troubles lasted nearly two millennium, just as he promised to do if they rebelled against him (Dueteronomy 28:15ff). God did exactly as he said he would... there can be no reasonable disputation of this on any level.
But at the end of this age, God is moving once again with the people of Israel, having brought them back to the land of their fathers that God had promised them (let the reader understand that this is an everlasting covenant). Truly we are in the end times. Israel's return to the Holy Land does not mean that she is holy or even righteous by God's standards. Clearly she is not; Their return is not a testimony to Israel's righteousness but to God's constancy and faithfulness to his promises. God keeps his word, he does not lie. When he makes a promise he keeps it. So let us always keep this in mind when God deals with us fallen humans, Jew or Gentile. God's salvation and works of love are not because of our righteousness but are because of both his mercy, love and steadfast faithfulness to his promises.
Israel still has many, many troubled yet to endure. I have talked about this many times regarding the path the man of sin will take into Israel and that many (most) Jews/Israelites will not make it. But God will save a remnant.
And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
Lawmakers Accuse Obama Administration Of Falsifying Border Data
And the the DHS orders its people not to look for documents related to the request. Looks to me like this administration has some things to answer for. As long as there is a major drug war going on down south of the border and our officials are 'accidentally' letting illegal immigrants across the border, the whole issue of Federal Corruption by these cartels cannot be ignored. These cartels are hooked into some pretty powerful folks and have a bottomless pit for money. Have members of the Obama administration been 'gotten to'? Certainly many border agents have already.Fascism's Foul Face Continues To Rise In UK
My guess is that a couple of assistant secretary's throughout the Law enforcement and national security bureaucracy have already been 'turned'. Don't think this administration won't turn a blind eye to serious crime for some campaign money?
Think again. There is a guy named John Corazine you might want to familiarize yourself with. This is not about Democrat and Republican, each side is as crooked as a snake. They are robbing us all blind and you (yes YOU) the American voter are going to put to the same folks who created this mess right back into office. Do you really know just how messed up out financial system is and just what is in store for you in the years ahead? One day you will weep when millions of you lose everything and cry and suddenly seek the Lord. But he will ask you, "Is this not what you asked for? Is this not what you chose? Why weepest thou unto me? Go and cry unto the 'gods' you wanted to rule over you... let them save you in the day of your distress... I will not hear. You wanted lies, fraud, murder, corruption and the spirit of antichrist for your masters, let these gods therefore have their way with you."
Secret courts, secret evidence no public scrutiny. Looks to me like David Cameron read Mein Kampf.... and liked it! This is what a 'secret state' comes to. Incompetence is hidden away and people go to jail and are tortured not because they committed a crime but because the intelligence agencies and law enforcement want to avoid 'embarrassment'. The US released a great many innocent folks from Gitmo, but you are not being told about it. Why? Our intelligence officials were overzealous or in many cases, incompetent and in still others, just plain old racists bigots who wanted to hear a Muslim scream in pain. You never heard about it. Why? Secrecy and our governments obsession with it. If folks really knew how incompetent our security agencies were, there would be a rapid reduction in the numbers of folks in it. We could easily do twice as good a job with half the people if oversight were more stringent and a competent reorganization were put underway and whistleblowers were given a real hearing with real results inside the system instead of being forced to go outside to fix the system. As long as secrecy reigns supreme the beltway bandits will make off with billions of dollars in money that no one will adequately account for. The nation cannot afford this bloated intelligence apparatus in its present form. I cannot speak for the UK but they too have some very serious budgetary woes.
This administration has been at the forefront of shelling out billions to crooked contractors for work that resembles that done during the Third Reich. The NSA is building yet another major facility (along side many others) that shows you just how much money is being spend on spying on you and me.
The data stored in Bluffdale will naturally go far beyond the world’s billions of public web pages. The NSA is more interested in the so-called invisible web, also known as the deep web or deepnet—data beyond the reach of the public. This includes password-protected data, US and foreign government communications, and noncommercial file-sharing between trusted peers. “The deep web contains government reports, databases, and other sources of information of high value to DOD and the intelligence community,” according to a 2010 Defense Science Board report. “Alternative tools are needed to find and index data in the deep web - Wired
Welcome to the real world, where millions of illegal immigrants rolling over our border many involved in a very violent drug war come across the border unmolested and even uncounted (deliberately by the DHS) but the US see's your communications to granny as far more important than narco-terrorism heading into the US. How do we know what these border criminals are carrying with them? Parts of a highly lethal chemical compound that can poison water supplies? Parts to a nuclear bomb? Drugs? Are they hired assassins? Are they Iranian special forces trained to look at act like Mexicans?? How do we know when the DHS won't stop them or even count them?! How long will these 'Keystone cops' run domestic security, using their power, not to secure the nation, but to undermine our rights?
How bad is the situation here? You know I have heard vague rumors that the DOD is secretly spying on the communications of Congressmen. I never really believed that until a recent incident happened to me when I communicated with my congressman. I won't go into details, but it showed me that clearly there may be more to this than just rumor. Why can't Congress control the Military Industrial Complex? Why would a sitting DOD chief arrogantly proclaim in a congressional hearing that he will not tolerate higher cuts in the DOD? Does the DOD have a secret black program that can 'control' congress using its enormous power over at the NSA using its 'cybersecurity' mission as an excuse to eavesdrop on Congress' and the Senate's communications? I cannot say for certain but given the trends in secrecy and the money heading over to the DOD that never gets accounted for, I would say that this is much more rather than less likely to be true. If the Secretary Of Defense determined (with or without the Presidents knowledge) that Congress was a 'threat' to what it deemed 'National Security' (namely large, bloated defense budgets) they would take some kind of action...
This is what happens when Secrecy abounds and oversight is lax and our top decision makers are out doing deals with known Chinese agents and the American people are so spiritually dead they put the same crooks right back into office.

Christianty Plays Key Role In Santorom Campaign
I have refrained from commenting much in Mr. Santorum because well, I am leary of him. His race baiting early in the campaign really turned me off. You know, one of few good things that Obama's Campaign and Presidency brought us is that Black, Latino and White came together to support him. Race was not a real issue. But when I hear a GOP candidate making disparaging remarks about Black Americans... I step back and say.. OK Rick, you say you are a Christian and have a lot of Church goers convinced, me... having been the victim of racism in the past and knowing some of the racist and murderous history of Southern 'Christians', I am just not jumping for joy over a Santorum Presidency. Sure he claims to be a Christian, sure he knows his bible. But the Klan also claimed to be Christian and the devil himself can cite scripture; chapter and verse.
When I hear some genuine contrition for his race remarks against Black Americans, perhaps I will listen more to his message, until then he can claim to be a Christian all he wants. I am not buying it until I see some real fruit, and racist pandering is not the kind of fruit that typifies a genuine Christian.

You can read the whole letter for yourself it is most revealing. It shows you the lengths satan will go to undermine the Church and bring it into disrepute.Sodom Watch: Uganda Gays Sues Pastor Over Gay Speech
Do not expect any kind of repentance or feeling so shame from the children of darkness. The scriptures are clear...
I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
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.
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it. And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
The Spirit of Sodom's main target has always been the people of God. From Sodom and Gomorrah, to the major metropolises of the 21st Century. Time and again Sodom has attacked the Churches. not the Mosques, but the Churches.
Dear readers, God does not hate gay people, nor does any genuine Christian. He calls men everywhere to repent of their sins and come to the cross. Our job as Christians is to show men the path to the cross, which is only found on the highway of genuine repentance of all sin and iniquity and homosexuality is sin.
To teach differently is to deny the Gospel and to become a false teacher.
So why did the Church punish this priest? I have no clue, but have my suspicions

This appears to be part of a program by Hu Jintao to get rid of the so called 'princelings' of the China, those offspring from the original leaders of China. This removal appears to be the culmination of a long term policy to undermine this faction (the Communist Youth League and the 'Princelings') in China. You can get a little background here and here. What does this mean. I cannot really say as I am not well versed in internal Chinese political machinations. But here is an update from the Jamestown Foundation that appeared early last month.Another Church In Nigeria Hit By Suicide Bombing
The disappearance of Chongqing's Deputy Mayor Wang Lijun amid rumors that he sought asylum at the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu may threaten the political fortunes of the city's Party Secretary and Politburo member Bo Xilai. Wang, who until recently was the Chongqing Public Security chief, was a key partner in Bo's now-famous campaign against organized crime and corruption. The ambitious and controversial Bo is a contender to reach the Politburo Standing Committee, China's highest decision-making body; however, Wang's troubles may derail Bo's rise with considerable implications for Chinese politics.
In the China Brief special issue on "China in 2012," Portland State University professor and long-time China watcher Bruce Gilley identified Bo Xilai as a key potential ally for the presumptive future President Xi Jinping's ability to push his favored policies. The China Brief regularly has analyzed Bo's rise and aggressive efforts to secure higher positions as he has been a lightning rod in Chinese politics as well as an important figure in exposing the fault lines in ideological debates for foreign analysts.

Read this and then dispense with the childish notions that all CIA personnel are drug peddlers who sell dope to 10 year olds, or shoot unarmed civilians for sport. When in the Military and I was working in as an intelligence analyst, I had to opportunity to work with many of these guys and with one exception (a guy who clearly did not like Black people) I found them to be top notch folks with a very dangerous job to do. That is not to say considerable 'rot' has not seeped into the agency over the past several years, I know that it has. But I also know that some of these men and women take tremendous risks and many are torn with conscience at the evil decisions America's Presidents make and order them to do. Some of these guys wind up with some psychological problems because of their work. Never get the impression that the CIA is some rouge agency, they make no move without a Presidential Order. It has always served Presidents well to leave that impression in the minds of voters and they always tend to cast their bad decisions on a 'rouge' CIA, but that is just politics. The truth is that if the agency is doing evil things, the President and the President ALONE is to blame because he often does not even have to inform Congress.
But the whole intelligence culture is dysfunctional, very dysfunctional and it is tragic that President's must rely on it to formulate policy for as often than not, intelligence is 'molded' to fit a pre-arranged policy and not vice versa. Turf battles, petty agenda's, back stabbing and shoddy analysis, fraud, waste abuse and corruption are all real problems that no one has any real intention of solving and because so much of the community is secret, there is no way to tell the people except for the rare unauthorized book like this one. A great review can be found on the Amazon page (see Robert Steele (second review). Read David Dougherty's review as well.
Look, as long as secrecy abounds nothing will change and there are forces that want to make sure that nothing changes. This is why I have been so hard on Obama with regard to Whistelblowers. These men and women don't do it just to get headlines, there is too much risk for them and no upside. They do it because of conscience; there are serious problems in the Intelligence community and this President seems intent upon compounding them, rather than correcting them which is demonstrated by him consistently shooting the messengers who bring him news he does not want to hear. This President has prosecuted more leakers than any other Administration in history. As one Administration Official put it, 'This President has a knack for ignoring reality'.

Don't let these politicians with bloody hands deceive you again with their lies about 'freedom' and 'democracy' and 'free speech'. These are the political lullaby's they use to lull you to sleep in the voting booth.
For those of you who love our Lord, fret not thyself. This wickedness must grow to Biblical proportions and the evil fruit of our doings must grow to maturity. But know this and tremble with fear, God is not going to forget those who do thees things and don't fully repent of them. Christ is most specific the fate of those who do and love evil and where they go as well as those who offend.
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.I have said it before and I will say it again, Christ spoke consistenly about a place called Hell. It is a real place and real people go there... every single day.
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

It is a rare person who can and will do this, stop doing the devils work for a lucrative paycheck. For those of you who love the Lord I can tell you this; if you trust God for your provisions and are in a job that is bent on evil and greed, your prayers to leave will not go up in vain. God will look out for you. You may not be living nearly as well as you do now if you leave, but God can and will take care of you. But you must do two things. 1) Make no major move without deep and serious prayer and 2) When you step out, do so in total faith AND OBEDIENCE to the Lord.
One thing my many years on this earth has taught me is that God honors faith.

A look at the historical context of todays persecution of Assyrian Christians. A very good look. Now let me breifly put it it a prophetic context. What religion is persecuting Christians world wide, often (as the article describes) killing them en masse? How does the Bible describe a key component of the last days system? Does he not call it the FALSE PROPHET? Is Islam just a religious system? No, it is a political and religious system. Ever heard of Sharia? Is Islam growing in power and significance or waning? Who is killing Christians these days? Radical/Political Islam. Who institutes the mark of the beast and has Christians killed for not taking it?

Obama Signs 'Trespass Bill'
This bill is written so broadly that government could name just about anyplace at anytime a no go zone. Step by step your leaders grab your rights away (the right to assemble here) and no one in the MSM even bothers to cover it. What does this mean, really? Simply put the US has declared war on the people who to this day have not figured out just what the word 'bankrupt' is going to mean them in the near future.High Commodity Prices Lead To Record Farm Profits
What is great for farmers is not so good for consumers as high food prices are straining family Budgets. This article links this to both speculators and theArab Spring uprisings. According to the FAO we have seen significant increases in the past couple of months, and the rise in fuel prices is not going to help.
Clearly there are many factors that are leading to inflation in commodity prices, but one that no one in the MSM has hit on is the inflationary polices of the FED and the ECB. Each has embarked on a reckless path to bailout major financial institutions at the expense of both the long term stability of their currencies and overall economies.
You can see it in the price of gasoline. Granted some of the price rise can be attributed to the tension in the Gulf, and yes, also the rise in consumption in China. But China's rise while significant, does not explain thesudden spike we have witnessed in just the past couple of months. While it is true that many interesting articles and blog posts have talked about China's energy needs, none have adequately addressed other factors that will tend to drive up prices of both food and energy; that being the debt monetization of the Fed and the massive bailouts taking place in Europe. Each is being accomplished with sophisticated debt monetization and each is contributing significantly to rising commodity prices. But it is not just commodities (real tangible things, like Gold, Silver, Wheat, Corn, Oil, etc) but also in stock prices which are also being inflated. With stocks, inflation can be disguised as 'prosperity' for when stock prices appear to go up, people think that this makes the economy better. This is not necessarily true for when the inevitable bust comes as it always does with 'printed money' driven stock price inflation, there is always a hell to pay. Remember 2008? All those pension funds and 401l's that took a beating. Remember MF Global and all that money that was 'lost'? That is what happens when you inflate your currency and encourage reckless investments in stocks that are non or under-performing when it comes to theirbusiness fundamentals (profit/loss). This is done by elite bankers who are the only ones allowed to borrow from the Fed at zero interest rates and then going out and buy up stocks, driving the market to greater and greater highs. The money should be going to fund new business and enterprises but as long as they can drive up the price of the stocks with this new money, it is a 'win win' situation... for the time being. So I expect to see the Stock Market rise to new heights as we head into November 2012 while the Fed provides interest free loans to the Banks and charge you and me 10-20% ...and still need bailouts to stay in business!
So what is really happening? This is not rocket science and like I told my readers back in 2005 when we were on a fast track to a crash, I say the same things now, the track we are on is going to make 2008 look like a Sunday walk in the park. The money printing is designed to stay within the 'elite'. In short, they are supposed to keep the money in the stock markets in order to keep up the illusion of 'recovery'. But we are really way beyond that because our nation is so deep in debt that we are forced to buy our own Treasury paper to fund our government. Everyone sees this except the American voter. One group of people I suspect may be working to protect their interests is the Saudi's. They are very astute and are not going to keep on taking depreciated dollars for their oil. China is already importing more oil from the Saudi's that the US and it would be hard for me to imagine a world where deals are not struck to offset Saudi deep concerns over Americans perilous fiscal situation. Who wants to hold large amounts of dollars when they are likely to be depreciated significantly over the next few years? It is not lost on this author that we began to see the a noticeable spike in oil prices just after Chinese Premier Wen's whirlwind visit throughout the middle east last month.
What readers need to understand fully is that China's foreign policy is dominated by its desire to secure energy for its ever expanding economy. This is one of the main reasons China has remained staunchly loyal to Iran, she imports a significant amount of oil from Tehran and despite some recent pricing disputes, she remains loyal to the Iranian Regime, even in the face of American threats. The Saudi's who still command the main attention in the matters of oil exports can be seen to be a key target of China's oil politic and it is not beyond the pale of imagination that the two have struck some kind of clandestine deal (with the possible help of US oil companies) that has resulted in the recent spike in oil prices. We should keep in mind that the Saudi's were none too pleased with the way the US has reacted during the Arab Spring revolutions. They were particularly angry with the way we demanded Mubarak's ouster and the tension that still exists over treatment of protesters in Bahrain, where Saudi troops now patrol. Let us keep in mind that the Saudi's are deep seated and long standing enemies of democratic expression in all its forms and have long sordid track record to prove it. That the "Arab Spring" in the middle east which were (and are) strongly encouraged (if not directly fomented) by the US is a policy that will have long lasting negative effects on the US-Saudi relationship, is not a topic that is much discussed these days. Why? The Saudis see this as a betrayal of long standing relations that the US had with the former military junta in Egypt and the more open pro US regime in Bahrain. The Saudi's were not about to let Bahrain fall as the two economies are closely linked and the Saudi's apparently wanted the US to do more on the Bahrain situation than America was willing to do. Does this signal that the Saudi's want new leadership in the White House and are quietly working to drive up the price of oil in the hopes that it will cause someone more friendly to oil interests to win in November? Hard to say from way out here in the geopolitical 'bleachers', but my guess is that I am not far off base.
We must keep in mind that the whole specter of lagging energy demand in the US is not a small issue in the minds of America's massive oil conglomerates. They do not like to see the DOD 'Green' itself. It means reduced revenues from Federal contracts, from Jet Fuel to gas for Hummers. I do not think they are going to do a thing to help Obama get re-elected. The pity of it is is that even if they get what they want (a pro-oil President) they will only use him to drive up profits for themselves. To be blunt, this does not mean lower gas prices for you and me.
Be prepared to continue to pay at the pump.

No surprise here really. The Vatican has had a long history of shady financial underatakings. The rot has only grown under this new guy installed as Pope, Joseph Ratzinger. I think the President has finally figured out one of the key links to a truly evil network I have long talked about here. I say 'fiinally figured it out' because he cannot and dare not depend on this intelligence people to enlighten him on this topic. Sadly, he must depend on back channels for hard information. The National Intelligence bureaucracy will deny and deny, make excuses and then rummage through their files for records to burn, shred or otherwise destroy.Former Penn. Governor Investigated For Terror Ties
Let us never forget the Pope who lasted only a month was determined to clean up the Vatican Bank.
According to David Yallop’s book In God’s Name, Luciani quickly ordered an investigation of the Vatican Bank, and on the evening of September 28, 1978, after only 33 days on the job, he reviewed final drafts of documents approving sweeping changes, including the immediate replacement of Marcinkus. The next morning, Luciani was found dead. The changes at the Vatican Bank did not happen. - Vatican Bank - Then And Now

Church Foreclosures Skyrocket
The numbers have caused banks and other financial institutions be more cautious, while one financial institution that specializes in Church loans has not made a profit since 2008. Global Post has a good story here. The modern debt trap has caught a great many 'churches' by surprise. This economic crisis is not, I repeat NOT over, not by a long shot. Churches than can renegotiate their loans for lower rates or better terms may want to take advantage of the low rates we see today. But truth be told, I just do not think the Lord is very pleased with the kinds of money spent on these huge facilities and money that goes from the flock into the hands of the bankers. I think, frankly he is pretty upset with it. Not unlike the whole incident with the money changers in the Temple; the money-changers come in and find a way to fleece God's people. I am not accusing anyone in particular, just the whole system in general. Let us all remember this simple biblical principle...
"The Borrower is servant to the lender. "
...and only go into debt when we must and have been directed or guided by the Lord in this direction. I just don't think many Churches or pastors are doing that, but get the 'Church envy' bug and see that so-and-so has big Chruch... why can't we?
The measure of ones spirituality comes not in the size of the building but in the dedication and obedience of the flock.

Ever wonder why you see no Google ads on this site, no Google search box's, no Google links (except the rare YouTube Vid)?
You do the math.
But one must keep something in mind before you are too hard on Google. The Chinese attack on their servers couple of years ago was a major wake up call for the search engine and they were almost forced to get Federal help to prevent further attacks. The Chinese are very good at cyberwarfare, they use every trick to get into servers. Their capabilities are exceptional, if they cannot get in using network attacks, then they can and do subvert the people in key positions of the company (any company) who can give them access. . Google had to get into bed with Uncle Sam and that bed as the saying goes, has the offspring of ten thousand fleas in it. In order to obtain that cooperation, the Government, I am fairly certain, wanted something in return. So I am not as hard on Google as one would imagine because surprisingly they do not lay down to every government request for info (unless it is accompanied by a warrant), unlike a great many other search engines who will provide the telephone book to the government when all they asked for was a single sheet of paper... with NO warrant. But then you see things like this and have to take the official google explanation with a grain of, no... 15 pounds of industrial strength salt.
Listen folks, your communications are mostly innocent of any malice or evil intent. But one email or post to a group or friend written in anger could put you in hot water and you not even know why. The best way to keep from having your data mined is to keep full control of your data. Keep it off Social networking sites.. STAY AWAY FROM THEM. If a search engine forces you to use theirs, be suspicious as to how the data is being used and who is asking them to do this.

The Web never forgets and I want to give all my Christian readers a very strong word of advice here. If you go back to the revolts in Egypt you will see how many pro-democracy protesters were picked up using all kinds of web surveillance equipment sold to Egypt by the US, it should give a wiser soul reason to pause and consider. Christians in the US will one day face all kinds of persecution here in the US. It is already happening on a very small scale, but I think it possible (if not likely) four more years of Obama will unleash a frontal assault in Christians in America as his Islamic roots take control of his policy leanings. I think the whole affair with the Church being forced to pay for Abortions is just the beginning and the only reason why he stopped is because he knows that there are a lot of Catholics in his political base and that move could have cost him the election. I hope I am wrong about the next four years but an Obama with no re-election discipline in my view is a very scary thought.
Romney? I do not see him as being any better as I see his religious beliefs are founded on the principles of Freemasonry, not Christianity. In my view, each is trying to deceive Christians as to their true spiritual foundations and secret intentions.
So my words to you are these; Be careful out there on the web. Be most careful because when they start persecuting Christians, there will be no announcement, they will just do it and only after about a year of it will some of your more spiritually attuned sites pick up on it. The major 'corporate' sites that peddle religion and are secretly working for the enemy will not.
Christian Bloggers and website owners in particular need to know some tricks to avoid Big Brothers 'net' when serious persecution comes.... and it will come.
These are words to the wise. You can ignore the increasing secularization/satanification of our government if you want to, but truth be told, if you do, you are only deceiving your own self.

Since 1988, tens of thousands of Chin people have fled from Chin State, Burma, seeking refuge in neighboring Mizoram State, India. Fleeing the widespread and persistent ethnic, political, and religious persecution by the Burmese military regime, their numbers in Mizoram have grown to an estimated 100,000. 31 Few have known firsthand about the persecution of this Christian ethnic minority group because the Burmese military regimehas long restricted most foreign travel to Chin State and Burma and most media coverage as well. - Report from Seeking Refuge.com

US-Israel Relations In Light of Iran's Nuke Ambitions
The INSS has done a great job at looking at public statements on the dilemma faced in a rather serious policy dispute between the two nations, in the context of the March 5th meet between Obama and Netanyahu. I can tell you that despite the pubic relations act that both sides have been forced to employ to downplay any tension, I can tell you authoritatively that the meeting was a disaster by any and all measures of diplomatic interaction. Netanyahu clearly sees a very real and present threat to the existence of the Jewish people and reminded Obama about how the US did nothing back in the 1930's when the US was warned by Germans and Jews that a Holocaust was coming. No one did anything in the US, except make a pretty penny from the industrial scale slaughter. BB reminded Obama, not of the profiteering, but of the deliberate policy of inaction and its result. Things got heated and then they got really, really ugly... both exchanged horrible racial slurs on each other, shouted and that as they say... was that.
Obama is not about to do anything that might cost him the election. He is paranoid about (what is left of) his political base bolting on him in November and is paralyzed into complete inaction on this issue and on Syria. Mind you I (personally) am certainly not calling for a war on Iran or intervention in Syria, I am against both; but truth be told, if Iran builds a bomb before November the US is not likely to do anything. This is not a scenario that I relish in any way shape or form. Clearly there is some very serious concern both in Intelligence circles and in Israel over this. It appears that new and incontrovertible evidence has come into the hands of policy makers that is being very closely held that Iran is very close to building one or should she so decide, could do it in a very short timeframe. Let us not forget that Iran has a respectable Ballistic Missile Capability that cannot be ignored.
BB and Obama? Look, Obama.. I just never saw him as being a strong supporter of Israel. His heart and loyalties lie in the Islamic world, at least that is the way I see it. I admit I could be wrong, but a close look at his moves over the years shows a clear tilt towards Islamic nations, no matter how despotic and undemocratic or their record of material support to terrorism. Frankly, I think the major check on him that has forced him to push for more openness in the Islamic world is not coming from the White House, but from Secretary Clinton, whose concerns on this front are not just theatrics, but surprisingly appear to be deeply held personal beliefs she has translated into US policy.

AEI Calls US Policy In Yemen 'Recipe For Failure'
Political Cleaning Services Inc.
Well these days we are seeing all kinds of strange things happening in the political arena, as well as things that one may never hook up with the political arena if they were not clued into the 'system'. Breitbart murdered (despite what the Coroner many or may not reveal, he was indeed murdered). this is just one opening salvo in a war that will take place sometimes in the headlines, but more often than not far, far away from them. These political Janitors are thorough, they know who to kill, how to kill them and then how to clean up any mess afterwards. You can be fairly certain that right now, the real reason that the LA coroner has not released his finding is that he has come under extreme political pressure to rule the death of Breitbart anything but murder. This is done via bribes at first and if they do not bite, then blackmail and then threats to life, limb, family and property. Time and again I have seen it and was warned not to post any details on many, many murders that took place from 2004 onwards. Warned mind you in a very friendly way. Like, 'don't post this if you do, you will find new enemies that may one day hunt you down and kill you'. So I have always (and will continue to) refrain from giving too many specifics. Whether it was the DC Madam or Senator Wellstone, or a couple of dozen other major 'sudden death' headlines, I have kept fairly quiet. I will maintain that tradition and not point fingers at 'who' but do what I can to enlighten my readers as to how this is done and help them understand that a squeaky clean image can often hide much darker side of a politician or (more of then than not) a hired political hack's personality. Sometimes these things are done completely without the person running or holding office's knowledge. Other times, it is just a certain nod and tone of voice, 'clean that up for me will you?' The next thing you know there is famous corpse in a tub or falling dead in the street or plane crashing into a corn field.
This is the satanic underside of American politics. There lurks a spirit of murder that runs very, very deep into both parties, BOTH PARTIES. You can go back to the Clinton years and get a look at the long list of dead people associated there from the White House council (Vince Foster) to the Commerce Secretary (Ron Brown) to other less known people. This is not a new phenomenon. Often times murder is not necessary. Have you noticed the concerted assault on Conservative media personalities? Not just Breitbart but Rush Limbaugh is now under assault via both Lawsuits and the withdrawal of advertisers... in an election year. Now I have no sympathy with Rush at all, as far as I am concerned his show is a dangerous mix of political lunatic-rants and hate targeting and audience of men and women of exceptionally limited intellectual capabilities, but who do (tragically) vote. Remember Judge Napalitano on Fox? When you have millions in PAC money, you can pretty much do whatever you want with it... the FEC certainly isn't going to do anything and they are the only ones who can (by law). So if you want to bribe an advertiser to stop working with this or that radio or TV host, you can do it. You want to pay legal fees for a suit against a talk show host, you can. You want to pay for some .38 caliber 'consulting'? Don't worry, there will be no prosecution. You want to put a 'problem' behind bars or take him down with a scandal? This is not that hard these days, no AG anywhere in the nation is going to prosecute the killers... and live to see a courtroom. The law in America is no longer a place for Justice but a tool used by the powerful to maintain that power, nothing more and the sooner the people wake up that reality, we may begin to see some real change out there. Do you want to get rid of a nuisance Congressman without too much 'speculation' on the news or internet? That is easy. Two of the most vocal anti-war Congressman got railroaded with help from their own party. McKinney found that she had her district re-drawn by the War party (with pro-war democrat help) and lost her seat. What kind of Congresswoman was she?
On the International Relations Committee, where she eventually served as the Ranking Member on the International Operations and Human Rights Subcommittee, McKinney tried to curb weapons sales to countries that violated human rights—sponsoring the Arms Transfers Code of Conduct, which passed the House in 1997, to prevent the sale of weapons to dictators. In 1999, she partnered with a Republican colleague to insert a similar provision into a State Department reauthorization bill. A year later, she voted against granting full trade relations with China, citing Beijing’s poor human rights record. McKinney frequently challenged American foreign policy during this period, including the 1999 bombing campaign in Kosovo, long-standing U.S. sanctions against Iraq, and much of U.S. policy in the Middle East - House.gov
The same thing happened to Kucinich last Tuesday, redraw and oust. No more antiwar voices in Congress. Why do you think they want that? Because when November rolls around no mater who gets in office, a whole new slew of wars is going to start. Did you know we have put ground troops in Yemen? The MSM hasn't released that inconvenient little factoid to you have they? The war party (made up of both parties) have used their political 'cleaning services' once again and not 1 American in 100 knows what happened or why... or even cares. If you don't have 'Bomb Fever', they will move you out of Congress.
Whitney Houston? My sources make it plain that with 100% certainty that she was murdered. Even now there are calls for such an investigation. Well, here on is what I will only call fairly reliable rumor (emphasis on rumor) put to me a few days after her death. Apparently Whitney had a sexual encounter with one of the men currently running for President many years ago ((Don't worry Michelle..., all indications are that your husband is faithful!) ) and images of potential 'Herman Cain' scandal sent the political hacks associated with that Campaign into a panic. A check was written and Whitney died. It is highly unlikely the candidate sanctioned or even knew a murder was being planned.
The latest Soccer Mom arrests for an alleged hooker ring? Let's just say that the clientèle was very, very exclusive and upscale and some of the women knew things and had sex with men who have a lot of serious power and serious wealth (like maybe someone running for President?). Better to put them in a place where they can't talk...
...like maybe under six feet of dirt. So look for a couple of young, cute 'Suzie Snakehips' or two to be found dead in unsolved murders over the next few months. They will be in the back pages of your local papers, not in National Headlines.
They want to send a message to that particular whole sex-network just what is at stake; 'Herman Cain' will not happen again in 2012 and if you are pretty young thing inclined to talk about an encounter with a key person in the election year, you just may want to re-think that move. Not to digress here, but Herman's problem was that he was just too politically naive to ever have won. If he was really serious or knowledgeable about the cesspool of American politics, those sex problems he had would never have arisen. But truth be told, many of those women never had any relationship with Mr. Cain. They were paid large sums of money to 'remember' things that never occurred, and yes, a firm money trail does exist. Naturally the FEC is completely disinterested and continues it's 'three monkey routine' (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil).
My point here is not to point fingers. They are all doing it. Neither party is immune and millions of American Christians will fall once again for the political tricks that deceives them into voting for a continuance of the evil we have thus far seen. They will vote for satan, thinking they are doing 'God's will'. They are, but the god they are doing their work for does not have a capital 'g' in his name when it is spelled.
Brethren, keep thy foot (and hand) from evil (Prov 4:27).

...and nothing changes.
No one should be surprised over Putin's win. I am not. Just at the loud cries of fraud being bantered about by the west and a small segment of shall we say 'impressionable' Russians who are acting up.
I think what is lost on many commentators who never understood Russia before the fall of the Soviet Union and the turmoil that took place afterwards is that many Russians during the Yesltsin years equated 'democracy' with gangsterism, crime and political chaos. Today, we like to forget about those days, but many Russians, especially older ones have not. Why should they? These Russians are less likely to be spurred into the streets by foreign 'activists' to protest Putin, a man the West has little love for. During Putin's reign, stability returned, bread was on the shelves and a sense of order was maintained. For many Russian, the idea of naked 'democracy' is a scary thought. It would probably be to most Americans if we had to endure what Russians had to back in those days. Russians also know that America was not a lot of help back then, but did a lot of harm in helping Russian Organize Crime Figures launder their money.
Yes, Putin is very much connected to organized Crime groups in Russia. But let us be fair, and totally honest with ourselves. Obama is connected to Organized Crime Groups here in the US. The kinds of groups who can go to the Fed and grab Treasury of trillions of dollars, foreclose on Americans without the proper papers, 'lose' billions in client money and not do time. Putin's crime deals are 'small potatoes' by comparison. They are the 'gas station stick-ups' and 'purse snatching' of the Geopolitical world compared to the crimes this President, his predecessors and backers are into. They hope to increase their 'takings' over the next four years.
No, the west's real concern with Putin is his competence and ability to strengthen Russia's international position and not let Russia be a doormat for America to wipe her feet on. So as John McCain bragged about it, a (no so) spontaneous 'Arab Spring' came to Russia and the Checks paying for it were often signed outside of Russia.
Well, I never thought trying to interfere with Russia's internal affairs was a good idea, especially at election time. America's elections are not so squeaky clean that we are are in a position to criticize. Well, Putin is no fool and he will remember what the West tried to do him. This guy may not be particularly subtle, but his methods can be as effective as they are exceptionally brutal. Mr. Putin is not a person American leaders or anyone who values his life wants to mess with. I tell you of a truth and I do not exagagerate in the least. If America can go on an assasination spree on global leaders and their families, don't think for an instant that others won't do the same to us. The Russians are very good at it and have shown in the past quite capable of operating in very similar manners inside the US even in the post 911/DHS era.
Everyone, including our own policy analysts want to put Russia into some dustbin of history. They think Russia is a geopolitical basket case. Well, Napoleon thought so and so did Hitler. Each made that same strategic blunder that is being made at CIA and the DNI that brought down both of the afore mentioned empires; that being to underestimate Russia and doing what they can to destroy her. The first two made their fatal blunder with gunpowder. But wars are not fought that way anymore They are fought with currency, covert operations, propaganda, cyberwars, crime, subversion, poison... We have fired off a many a salvo at Russia's Putin and Putin's Russia.
It's payback time.
Brothers, I hate to go on like this, but for the few who are awake we must not let ourselves be deceived by what some have called (incorrectly, but not totally without spiritual insight) the 'image of the beast' (TV) and those who lie on it and call their lies 'news'. Deceit and crime are everywhere, satan does an excellent job at fooling those who want to be fooled and our leaders are among the most deceived, thinking themselves to be wise, they have becomed utter and compete fools (Rom 1:22). Those of us who have groped for light and insight into these times know just how late the hour is. So let us not let our minds become befuddled with the wine of the wrath of her fornication (Rev 18::3) but let us renew it with Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Know this, those who are being deceived on some level want to be deceived. They do not really want truth (2Thess 2:9-12). What they want rather, is whatever makes them rich, powerful comfortable or gives them pleasure. They want their delusions confirmed and their lives 'enhanced' by whatever power will give them what they really want. It is a rare soul that will look long and hard for real truth, but for those that do, God will move heaven and earth to see to it that person gets it. Like the days of old, the entire nation may pay some kind of lip service to God, but God knows the hearts of the men who inhabit the nation of America. Jeremiah saw the same things way back when.
Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely.
Brethren, these are wicked days. Men are lovers of self, perversions, lies, violence and seek to force their wickedness on those who would follow Christ. Weather it be sodomy, baby killing, compulsory payments for things God hates, our land has become a kind of Ichabod. Even the Churches by and large are little more that houses of merchandise and sin, with some notable exceptions. When the Lord unleashes his anger, they too will not be spared. So when you hear of earthquakes and tornadoes; floods and nuclear disasters hitting and destroying Churches as well as Temples of Baal, remember that most Churches in America simply aren't. They have a form of Godliness but deny the power thereof. They forsook the path of the Lord long, long ago.
How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses. They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour's wife. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
But Russia has suffered and suffered much and from that suffering Russia has seen a strong revival of her Churches and the Orthodox Church has come into increasing prominence. While many have questioned the depth of any real revival it is interesting to note that in Russia, the leaders are not ashamed of nor afraid of the Gospel or the Church. While in America you can lose your Federal Job for displaying a cross at your desk. I find it of note that Putin has gone to great lengths to strengthen the Church and identify with it and not tear it down as is the case with so many of America's leaders, as they pander to the what I can only describe the neo-satanist movement across America. It is a movement made up hundreds of different groups whose sole (real) purpose is to defame Christians and cast out any reference to the God our forefathers prayed to in any public reference and then isolate then persecute Christians. Not so in Russia.
My point here is not to show that Russia is a far more 'Christian' nation that America, but to show you which direction each is heading. America is more and more openly turning its back on Christianity, you have the Presidents word on that. Like most satanists and secularists they wish desperately to undermine the firm Christian traditions that made America great and at one time, the most envied nation on earth. Why? Because they have a new system in mind that requires that traditional morality be jettisoned for a more utilitarian and commercial America to take its place. Human and civil rights are overturned and replaced in favor of corporate profits; truth with propaganda; labor with slavery; justice with 'state security' and life with death. This is where Clinton and Obama worked tirelessly to take America down the path to Sodom, on a road strewn with swasticka's and SS thunderbolts cleverly disguised as 'progress'. Ask the folks who are sitting now in concentration camps and torture chambers (kept secret from the American people) who never get a trial and are just accused of crimes they may not even be aware of. Who are these guys working for? Do you want a hint?
It should not be lost on any true Christian who is really running America and where he wants to take it and may each and every soul who values that soul, never put your stamp of approval on those who serve evil, lest you become hotly rebuked from the God you claim to worship. You cannot go into the ballot box and vote for the devil and with your deeds say, 'Satan rule over us' and then sit in Church and say you love God.
You simply cannot do it without deep, sincere and action changing repentance and stay saved. This is one key reason I spend do much time on politics, not is not about Democrat and GOP, it is about God and satan. Who do YOU serve? I mean really? Who do you ACTIONS (DEEDS) say that you serve? Your deeds (not your faith) are what will be judged, not your 'feelings' and intentions.
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
Why is the devil winning? One reason is that these guys take their religion very seriously. They follow the orders of their master with the greatest of care because if they don't, they know something very, very bad can happen to them. You do not leave the service of satan (at that level) without serious, drastic and shall we say, 'permanent' consequences. While the consequences for a Christian leaving the faith (committing apostasy) is far, far worse than the human mind can imagine, those consequences are not felt right away and for the most part, an apostate does not BELIEVE that his actions will damn his soul. The satanist BELIEVES (faith) that he can lose his position of power and wealth and possibly his life so he acts with fear because those are the things they love so he bows and scrapes before the prince of darkness. Let us keep in mind these powerful belief systems are what motivate men to act.
I am not just picking on Democrats. We have enough GOP satanists too as I have talked about many times before. It is just that Satanism is rarely advertised as being satanism. It has a thousand front organizations (secularism, lesbianism, abortionism, communism, fascism, commercialism, Freemasonry, Nazism, Islamism). Each will virulently, always virulently attack Christ and Christians, thus showing their true face. If you see any organization doing this consistently, you can be certain that somewhere deep in its organizational structure or funding you will find one of the more powerful satanists who have enormous power on the global stage. What does modern luciferianism look like? Let me give you a quick checklist. These are not necessarily the way these groups believe but they are the way they act and more importantly advertises themselves.
1) They always work hard to portray themselves as 'modern' 'progressive' and will go to great lengths to denigrate ethics and morality that America and the west were founded upon ( Christianity). In point of fact, many are just putting a 'modern advertising campaign' on many of the pagan and barbaric practices of the Stone, Bronze and Iron age. Hitler claimed to be modernizing Germany yet from top to bottom, the Reich more resembled Ancient Rome that anything Germany ever was. Here is a short but interesting piece written by a self professed pagan, it is interesting on a number of levels. Another interesting work can be found here written by an atheist. (I have deliberately chosen non-Christian authors to show lack of bias here)These are days we must not let ourselves get sidetracked with the dog and pony show meant to deceive America's voters into keeping the establishment in power. No, we will not be able to remove them with votes, but we also must not find ourselves putting our approval on their devil worship, lies, murder, thefts, hate, torture.... for that is the road to hell. Let no hell-ified pastor tell you otherwise. You cannot choose (vote for) satan and serve the Lord.
2) They often claim to have 'intellectual superiority' because they do not believe in God. Yet deny the very instinctive nature of the urge to worship God that has permeated human existence since man first learned to write. They tend to denigrate religion (particularly Christ) with all the fanaticism of a new Al Qaeda convert, showing a deep psychological disconnect from the detached 'intellectualism' they claim to profess. As Shakespeare would put it 'Me thinks the lady doth protest too loudly", for it is impossible for anyone to 'prove' God does not exist unless one has traveled to every corner of the known and unknown universe and can transform his being into dimensions that are at this time, not humanly possible. Anyone who claims to have such 'proof' and such certainty needs to undergo a serious Psych-eval for clearly they have let their hatred for what they do not believe in to twist their minds into folly of a tragicomic nature. But as often as not, they know exactly who they are serving and why.
3) They will use their front organizations to hit at key issues that tend to divide society against Christians. But always do their best to portray their wedge issues as a 'rights' issue. Abortion is a perfect but hardly the only example. It is a typical struggle between those who believe in the death-profit model (Nazi-ism/Fascism) for America's future against those who believe in the affirmation of life and taking the profit out of death (Christianity). America has had ten's of millions of Abortions and this is truly a billion dollar industry, not just from the procedure of killing children, but in the selling of the body parts for 'research' purposes (more here). Today our leaders want to make it even more profitable by compelling religions organizations to pay for these killings, taking money out of the Church and handing it over to the death industry. This is satanism, not done by brute force, but by very subtle administrative policy. Murder for profit. Think about how Judas lost his soul, he took 30 pieces of silver from the political leadership so that Christ could be murdered. Same basic ingredients in 21st centry politics; money and death with the state acting as an intermediary.
4) More often than not they will leave some kind of footrprint that tells you who they are really working for, weather it is the Manu Cornatu, strange public statements that seems completely out of place, or symbology of the organizations, satan likes to leave his mark. Pride is one of the Devil's hallmarks and he cannot resist taking 'credit' for his work. You can poke around the net and do a search on satanic symbols or 'Illuminati symbols' or 'occult symbols' and you can get the general idea and just how rich and powerful those who use these symbols are.
Some of you are sick and in serious, dire straits in your personal life because of those choices. If so and you are still alive, do yourself a big favor and do not compound that mistake in November. But know that if you have been rebuked, it is not because God hates you, but because he loves you.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
(yes, there will be overlap!)
