News updates will be intermittent this week. Summer is here, traffic loads always subside during this time of the year... so I will take a slight breather. God bless all my readers with light and wisdom in these times - MSW

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
(2Pe 2:1-3)

Oslo Terror Suspect A Freemason, According To His Facebook Page

Animal-Human Hybrids Created
These are things I have warned about many times in the past. The prophets of old warned of these things as they happened once before in the distant past, the creation of a race of beings that are not born of woman and are thus outside of God's redemptive plan. One look at the reasons why God destroyed the ancient world and we can better see the spiritual undertones of what is falsely called 'science' is really doing... it isn't to create cures for diseases. They are working on creating a new race of beings that are 'better' than man. A race of hybrids, just like we find in Genesis Chapter 6 (and in the book of Enoch). Today many nations are working in this field and the US is doing it primarily for military applications. This is an old crime that was the primary cause of the great flood - Polluting the genetic pool. This was done by fallen angles before and is certainly being driven by them today. Years ago, I posted this Vision by Holly Moody. You may want to check it out, I encourage it. The scriptures makes a rather unusual observation about Noah, that he was perfect in his generations. Strongs concordance says this about the word Generations used in this passaage.

to-led-aw', to-led-aw' From H3205; (plural only) descent, that is, family; (figuratively) history: - birth, generations.

His genetic line was not polluted by what was happening in those days. To put it bluntly, God's redemtive plan had never before been under such a threat as it was then and extreme action was taken by the almighty to do away with the gross evil and the demonic plan that was being hatched in those days.


The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. (Gen 6:11-13)

These angels have a heavy burden of punishment from God.

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jud 1:6)

These fallen ones along with other beings from the fallen host shall be dealt with, even as the scriptures lay out for us in the book of Jude. Men who follow their ways shall also be dealt with, most severely.

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jud 1:14-15)

Speaking of Enoch, a serious student would do well to read it and know that it is NOT scripture, but if the scriptures are referring to it and citing its prophecy as true, you would be wise to at least read it most prayerfully.

I know many will have a very, very hard time understanding or even accepting much of this as it is not generally taught. But it is this lack of teaching that has left the Church ignorant as to the true purposes, aims, goals and strategems of the evil one and that ignorance mean the Church is defenseless as well. Some strange things are going to be happening in the years to come; very, very strange indeed and if you are not familiar with your enemy, then you have a strong liklihood of being deceived by him. In closing, I have not covered this issue much on this site because there is such an unhealthy obsession with it on hundreds of sites that I did not and do not want to add to what is mostly just a junk pile of wild conspiracy theories and overactive imaginations as well as demonic disinformation. Nevertheless, as this age comes to an end an enormous deception is going to hit the earth that will just about deceive every man woman and child on earth, including the very elect (if it were possible - Matt 24:24). So, I say unto each of you...
be ignorant of this at your own peril!


Norweigen Tragedy: AP Spins Lone Nut Theory
A very strange conclusion since both attacks appear to have been coordinated and police are working the assumption that he had helpers. Reports are likening it more to Oklahoma City than a new 911. Hopefully, we are not being set up for a 'pre-arranged conclusion' in order to protect some of the real culprits, but it is much, much too early to say. Before any of you mock what I say keep this in mind, the very first thing that some will call for is more 'anti-terror' legislation that takes away rights from the people, or some new technology or invasive proceedures that brings all kinds of data into a central database that no one (not even elected representatives) will know exactly how or who gets to use it as though, 'if we had it, this tragedy would never have occured'. Our response to the 911 attacks made some folks hundreds of billions of dollars not just in wars, but also in contracts that collate thousands of terabytes of data on Americans; scanners, biometric readers and spy-tech that has yet to be told to the world at large. The spying is quite pervasive here in the US.
The repression industry is a multi-billion dollar business and as the news stories and MSM 'media-beat' goes forward in the days ahead, just keep that little factoid in mind. America's humungous defense/security corporations are at the center of this industry and if you don't believe me, ask some Egyptians, they will lay it all out for you and even show you the arms that say 'made in the USA' used to kill those who sought democracy... and no, we have not mended our ways. Too much money to be made by the repression industry and in Egypt, the military is still firmly in control of the nation. It is the ultimate 'security state'. Secure from the cries of its people, secure from democratic input, secure from oversight of its courts and government contracts. Do you want more 'security'? Be careful what you wish for.

In any event this is a terrible tragedy and whoever did it deserves the maximum sentence the law allows. There is no excuse for this kind of wanton violence against people who never did him (or anyone) any harm. It is a sick and twisted mind and ideology that could conceive of and carry out such wickedness. But sadly, it is just a sign of the times. Finally, let me say this; the political left/secularists/Wiccans and Islamists will have a field day with the fact that the main suspect is supposedly a conservative 'Christian'. I can only say this; anyone who could plot a murder let alone a mass murder is no Christian but rather is a person whose hands do the work of the devil. Yet such a label will give the enemies of Christ new ammunition to attack the followers of Christ. So, dear brethern, prepare for a propaganda assault on us. The truth? It appears that the suspect was actually a Freemason!


Clinton Builds Secret Mercenary Army, Blocks All Gov't Oversight
Here is a question that I assure is not an academic one. Who is really President, Hillary or Obama? Who has the last say on US foreign policy, Hillary or Obama? Who ordered the hit on OBL, Hillary (with help) or Obama? Who picked Obama's Cabinet and used their political machine to get those picks confirmed, Hillary or Obama? Who is behind 'rendering' a student who put up links that angered their Hollywood buddies, Hillary or Obama? Perhaps you can better understand why there has been and will never be any 'change' as long as Obama is in the White House. Any hope of meaningful change was sunk before he was even nominated by the DNC. Obama's policies are just a manifestation of what I was talking and warning about back in early and mid 2008, much to the chagrin of many of my readers. If you liked the wars, deficits, deceits, concentration camps, bailouts, elite/corporate immunity from prosecution, tax breaks for the rich of the Bush years, then you were going to love Obama. He ain't running things and if you can forgive the metaphor, he can't even 'change' his under garments without permission. Why not? They have a rather interesting 'file' on him that he hopes will never see the light of day.
They set policy, he gets the blame.

10 Major Corporations Paid Negative Tax Rate

Introducing The Islamic States Of America

Saudi Arabia To Deport Eritrean Christian
His crime which is punishable by death? Preaching the Gospel. Who is America selling $60 Billion in High Tech armaments to? Saudi Arabia. Do not kid yourself, America is assisting and facilitating the rise if Radical Islamicism around the world... all in search of profits for her major corporations.

"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."
- King Fahd Bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddeh 1993

Today's American Ambassador? James B. Smith, former Raytheon Executive. Raytheon who has locked up billions in arms sales to the Saudi's. Rub that magic lantern your highness... and in a puff of smoke your stupid genie will appear, ready to sell you anything your heart desires. Meanwhile, the Saudi's are trying to pass a law to further repress dissent in what is already one of the (if not the) most repressive places on earth.

DHS Denies Profiling Middle Class Whites As Terrorists
While this was probably more due to the DHS taking into account backlash from very sensitive Minority communities, some White Americans are understandably outraged....
'and this is what I pay taxes for?!'


Jobs News: Layoffs, Layoffs And (Surprise!) More Layoffs
The US economy is collapsing, not recovering and any economist worth his salt would say so. The fundamental and structural problems of the US are very significant and no one in either party is addressing them. They just try and 'out slogan' the other guy while jobs disappear in an ever widening crevice of this recession/depression. Those who try and explain it to the people get less than 1% of the vote. America has always had a choice to do what is right, she just always goes into the ballot box and chooses what is full of hot air, empty promises and just plain wrong.
Foreclosuregate: Banks Seek Immunity from Civil Lawsuits
The most telling factoid here is that the banks have continued the same practices that they pledged and were legally bound to stop.

Consumers Use Credit Cards For Necessities As Inflation Cuts Deep

The Disappearing Black Middle Class
Some of the most alarming facts are that black median income has fallen to far below the poverty level, while income among whites hovers just below six figures. These are facts far too many Americans just do not want to deal with. Millions of Americans are slipping into poverty, real poverty and our President gives tax breaks to the rich, and the GOP would rather bankrupt the nation than have Corporations pay their fair share. Meanwhile, the Tea Partiers and neo-fascist Libertarians are openly talking about a return to slavery. I do not want to paint all Tea Party members with that broad brush as it would be a big untruth. What is not an untruth is that real money and power behind its leaders have an agenda 180 degrees opposed to anything Christ stands for and use misquoted scripture, heretical doctrines and divisive language to achieve their ends. The members are being duped by a wiley political machine who pulls the strings. .

Cornet West Calls Obama 'Black Mascot' For Wall Street
Dr. West is correct, there is no other way to reasonably call Obama's policies anything else. But in all fairness the pressure on the President has been most extreme and some of those decisions were forced on him. Yet most were just the product of his own bad judgment and deals he cut with what can only and best be described as the minions of satan, whose sole polices are to steal, kill and destroy. He is still listening to, consorting with and doing the bidding of these entities, so do not expect any 'change' in the direction of White House Policy. But I rather think Dr. West might not be quite as outspoken as before for reasons I will not elaborate on, if he does, he is a far braver man than most and my prayers will go up for him. Dr. West, by the way is a Christian.

Debt Disaster: As Usual, Obama Cuts Deal With GOP, Dis's Own Party
Granted, appearances can be deceiving and the reports have been officially 'denied' but this would fit his previous pattern to a 'T'. This is the same kind of treachery that extended those tax breaks for the rich, raised them on the poor that helped put us in this horrible fiscal situation by creating another trillion dollars to an already hideous fiscal gap.

The Surveillance State Rolls On
This is quite good. Check it out.

Biometric Face Cameras To Be Installed At Heathrow In Weeks
Every tyranny in the past relied on a massive surveillance system to maintain power. The Nazi's had it and for the low tech times they lived in, were very good at it. These are high tech times and one day, folks who have committed no crime will be hauled off never to be seen again, just like in Nazi Germany. They will simply issue a 'gag order' and no one will even be able to tell you who they abducted and where they are. Laugh if you wish, but the Germans were in denial as well until the wars came and Hitler showed his true face. He found it easy, once the laws protecting people were done away with, to gas millions of men, women and children. No one was told and the whole operation was a great secret, even to the vast majority of Germans who sat silently while their family, friends and co-workers were hauled off, never to be seen again. Let me stress this, the underground Reich is real and no more a figment of diligent researchers imagination that the holocaust was. Their handy work is blazened across our headlines everyday... if you know what to look for.

(Infowars) "We have previously noted that the vast array of databases currently being employed by intelligence agencies, government and law enforcement agencies worldwide were designed to be linked together in a system which will tie in the management and control of all facets of life for citizens to one central hub.

"2008 saw the announcement of a vast intelligence program to establish a global biometric database known as “Server in the Sky” that will collate and provide an ” International Information Consortium” with access to the biometric measurements and personal information of citizens across the globe in the name of fighting the “war on terror”.


All the signs of a terrible future are staring the west in the face and the folks are still in denial because they have been psychologically trained not to put two and two together and get that forbidden 'four'.


"Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows." - From the book 1984


Will The US Navy Leave Bahrain?

More Fake Criminal Justice Reform In Georgia
How do you reform the “criminal justice system” without acknowledging systematic torture, endemic corruption, pervasive racial and class bias, the failure of the war on drugs, and the massive economic and social devastation it wreaks upon entire communities? The answer is you don't. You create a “Criminal Justice Reform Commission” of insiders and consultants, keep the public at bay, and focus on making the prison state cost less. For “reformers” like this, the only thing US prisons have done wrong is spend too much money

20 Signs That American Society Is Coming Apart At The Seams
This is a good little article. America's demise is written in the hearts of her population. More and more acts of reprehensible cruelty and desperation mark her citizenry. There is something very, very wrong with America and more importantly, Americans. Sadly, the Church is in shambles as well. I am watching this abomination that calls itself Christianity grow in political clout whose rhetoric is filled with many of the same doctrines of the Ku Klux Klan, advocating in a round about way a return to slavery for Blacks, I am appalled and saddened. I watch a group of deceived 'watchmen' hold conferences for only white men (as though God only speaks to those with light skin) and whose sites are filled with denigrating remarks, posts and links about anyone who is not 'White like them'. Some of them secretly belong to the Mormon Church or Freemasonic lodges but refuse to acknowledge that little fact on their sites or writings, thus deceiving many Christians. Little beknownst to Most Americans, Black Americans were only until fairly recently barred from even joining the Mormon Church!

Indeed a thorough look at much of the political and economic connections in modern American Christianity reveals some very frightening connections to the old racist past where Black men were lynched and murdered for just about any crime the KKK wanted to accuse them of. This is the kind of 'Christianity' far too many politicians and 'evangelicals' are really preaching. It is a 'gospel' built on the foundations of American military power used at will on the rest of the world. This is their frightening vision of the 'kingdom of God'. A look at the background and financial ties of so many of American Christianity's leaders would cause all who have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them to pause and consider... most carefully. Why? Because as Shakespeare would put it;

"There's something rotten in Denmark!"

The most telling way one can tell that this hideous contortion of the Gospel of Christ is coming from hell is that a simple test; There is no love for others. No love for the poor, the downtrodden, the innocent who sit in jail, no real love for justice and a callousness towards the real problems that exist in the Black, Native American and Hispanic Churches and communities. Just the same old deliberate and careful miscasting of their problems in ways that appeals to the lowest common denominators in American society; the American couch potato. Too lazy to check facts, too self satisfied to change their views, and probably just too reprobate to repent. They are comfortable with their hate and nurse it like a pet viper with the usual litany of extremist websites, radio shows and TV news networks.

Frankly, I loath to call myself a Christian in these times, I really do. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and serve him fully and refuse to allow myself to be lumped in with false brethren, ministers, prophets and 'watchmen', who always have something they want to sell me. These false prophets and ministers are merely the spiritual offspring of Gehazi and Simon. Each wanted to buy and sell what God has freely given, each once 'believed' and each was rebuked and were perilously close to (if they did not indeed) lose their own souls. The only way to prevent that horrible fate was and is to repent. I see little to no repentance out there with so many 'watchmen' and prophets who will sell you a book, DVD or survival gear for $49.95... plus shipping.

But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. (Act 8:20-23)

Brethern, I say these things to all of my readers Black, White, Hispanic, Chinese or Navajo, Christians, (real ones) or even to those that aren't - Love is one of the best tests of true spirituality. Brethren in Christ, care and love your brethren in Christ and do not belittle the sufferings of those the world has cast out and thinks little of. If they are lightly esteemed by the world, this especially in our day and age, a very, very good thing, spiritually speaking. Let these words, the word of Christ Jesus sink into your minds for it is a passage that most of American Christianity has missed and in so doing, have missed God.

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (Luk 16:13-15)

It is the 'important folks' and those who think they are racially 'superior' that I speak of here as well as those who are covetous (but history shows the two go hand in hand). What does God think about that which is highly esteemed among men? It is an abmonination as is any person who hold these evil views, regardless of race (Black and White supremacists beware). The biblical view? We are all part of a damned race, the human race and not one soul is deserving of the salvation God is offering... for FREE. But offer it he does to any and all who call upon him, in spirit and in truth. Black, White, Latino, Eskimo or Aborigine, it does not matter. God is calling a sinful race of humankind to repent and obey the Gospel for in it and it alone is the salvation of man. It is not in the Tea Party, The Freemasonic Lodges, the Democratic Party or in any Human institution. Those who attempt to replace the kingdom of God with any Human institution has taken a fatal step on the road to error for salvatoin rests in the work of God in Christ Jesus, alone.

Let those who twist the message of Christ into some racist or money making ideology bear clearly in mind that a most serious curse falls upon any man or woman who preaches another Gospel.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Gal 1:8-9)

Let all men and women who love God come away from these workers of iniquity whose fingers work mischief and whose hands are impatient to shed the blood of more innocents who do not look like or believe like them. Do not allow yourself to become accursed as they are and any who hold to their infernal doctrines. Hate is of the devil, God is love and showed us just how much he loved us all by the sacrifice of his son.

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. (1Jn 2:9-11)


The Demise of America And Why It’s Necessary
What we once were and what we are now are two very different things. The world, spiritually speaking, would almost certainly be better off without this new thing that has taken the place of the once great nation of America. There would be fewer weapons (we sell the most to the world by far), fewer wars, less pollution, less genetic contamination of the food chain and the breath of real freedom would blow once again on much of the world where we have supported, armed and militarily backed the most wicked and repressive dictators on earth. Let America turn from these things, let her leaders consider that the Lord is on high weighing America in the balances. Let our leaders consider their end and do what is right and forsake the evil paths they have chosen. Let our leaders stop consorting and taking counsel with and from the devil and give ear to the Lord and perhaps we as a nation will have a chance to survive the troubles that lay ahead for our world.

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. (Isa 1:15-23)

Drought In Africa's Horn: It's Getting Worse
US Aid has a report that can be found here and the UN has a report that can be found here.


Source: OCHA
A crippling drought combined with unprecedented high food prices and – in some areas – insecurity continue  to jeopardize the livelihood of millions of people in both rural and urban communities who already live on the  margins of survival due to conflict, displacement and chronic poverty. The recurrence of drought in the Horn of  Africa,  following delayed  or lack  of  rains, and  in  some cases  torrential  rains  that cause  severe  flooding  and  destruction of crops, has progressively eroded livelihoods and community coping mechanisms....

The unprecedented food price increases and in some countries unprecedented levels of conflict not seen since  the 1990s, seriously compound the complexity of the situation and consequently the capacity of governments  and  aid  agencies  to  respond.  Lack  of  proper  mitigation  and  recovery  programmes  continued  to  hamper  recovery efforts for the largely pastoral communities in the Horn. - UN/FAO 


Clinton Urges India To Become US Surrogate Against China

Resist The Temptations Of The Cloud
The World Wide Web, developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990 as a system for publishing and viewing information, is slowly being transformed into a system of remote computing. It will store your data, and data about you, often limiting your access to it but allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) access at any time. It will do your computing for you, but you cannot control what it does. It provides various tempting attractions, but you must resist them...

Then there is the issue of storing your data in companies' servers. The largest such companies have little respect for users' privacy. For instance, if you hand your data to Facebook, companies pay Facebook -- not you -- for the use of it. They pay Facebook -- not you -- to run ads using your face. - Richard Stallman


35 Years In Jail Possible In Obama's Latest Show Trial Against Hacktivist
“This makes no sense,” said Demand Progress executive director David Segal; “it’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library. It’s even more strange because JSTOR has settled any claims against Aaron, explained they’ve suffered no loss or damage, and asked the government not to prosecute.” - Inforwars

This is so sad because when hackers broke into Lockheed, no one did anything and believe me, they know exactly who hacked into it, they hail from the US and belong in prison and Holder is never going to touch them. This is why our Justice department is nothing more than an elite criminal facilitation department. They go after those with no political clout and protect (yes protect)the real crooks who steal national security secrets and who have money and 'connections'. Why not hit the real traitors rather than someone who 'steals' something of no economic value in some idiotic display of tyrannical might.

The global shakedown is on with Spain, Ireland and Italy being next on the hit list of the western financial titans. Did it ever occur to anyone that these elements in the GOP that are driving us to default are working for these titans and a default is exactly what they want so they can have a firesale on US assets? Dig deep into some of these tea partiers and their funding and you can see a pattern that shows that these guys are probably not coming from the 'grass roots' but from the head of mammon.

  Murdoch Empire Under Threat
Dead whistelblowers, resigning police officials and now Ruppert is to testify before Parliament. This can 'jump the pond' so to speak and hit US shores. Murdoch's empire is accused of hacking the phones of 9/11 victims. Indeed, I find it most suspicious that the dead whistleblower was immediately determined to be 'not suspicious'... the day before Murdoch testifies. I will ask the question if no one else will; did the cops kill him? The cops who are investigating the case are very much and very deeply involved in this scandal. There are two groups who had much to lose by the whistleblowers revelations and benefit by his death; Murdoch and the UK Police.

Getting Away With Torture
Meanwhile, Obama and Holder two Black men who have held the highest postions on government since Gen. Powell, have dismissed 98% of all torture cases against the Bush administration and are rounding up some black folks to turn over to the tender hands of our torturers interrogators.

Debt Default - WW
A Layman's Understanding

Any default by America on her debts will ultimately and eventually spell the end of the US empire. It will deal a death blow to her economic empire which is built largely upon the debts she has been able to lure the world to accumulate. Americans who are understandably too busy to deal with these issues should take as close a notice about this issue as they possibly can because this is going to effect all of us if our leaders choose default. But before we go there we must understand a couple of things. As of this writing most Americans do not favor an increase in the debt ceiling. This paper is here to show you why as much as I sympathize with this view and to a large degree hold it, just what this really means to the nation and you without any hyperbole and/or scare tactics. If we fail to raise that number America as you know it will change significantly and probably permanently.

The debt limit is a statutory amount the government is allowed to borrow. On the surface it sounds like a good idea not to raise this limit as we are already $14 trillion dollars in debt. Most Americans understanding of this issue is quite limited and polls tell us that most Americans do not want to raise that limit. Their ignorance has given some members in the House a tool wherewith they can politically browbeat their opponents and extract concessions during negotiations. However the problem is not that simple, not by a long shot. Without further borrowing, Government employees would in all likelyhood experience serious disruptions in pay, Retirees would might not get their checks on time (though mandatory spending programs will probably continue at least for a while) Medicare recipients would not get insurance our military would not get its checks on time or in full. In short our Government would not actually 'shut down' but find itself extremely cash strapped and would eventually have to resort to selling off other assets to meet its financial obligations and/or raising taxes to a politically unacceptable level. Continued inaction would force an effective shutdown before long.


Under current estimates, the federal government will have to issue an additional $738 billion in debt above the current statutory limit to finance obligations for the remainder of FY2011. If the debt limit is reached and Treasury is no longer able to issue federal debt, federal spending would have to be decreased or federal revenues would have to be increased by a corresponding amount to cover the gap in what cannot be borrowed. To put this into context, the federal government would have to eliminate all spending on discretionary programs, cut nearly 70% of outlays for mandatory programs, increase revenue collection by nearly two-thirds, or take some combination of those actions in the second half of FY2011(April through September 30, 2011) in order to avoid increasing the debt limit. Additional spending cuts and/or revenue increases would be required, under current policy, in FY2012 and beyond to avoid increasing the debt limit. - Reaching the Debt Limit: Background and Potential Effects on Government Operations


Why? It is because the gap between what we take in in taxes and what we spend is so astronomical that we would not be able pay our all of our bills. We depend on an enormous amount of borrowing just to pay or ongoing expenses. Not only that but when we talk about default we are talking about that $400 billion dollars in interest payments on existing debt we must pay every year. Not only that but any kind of default, even a 'technical' one would have a lasting impact on America's ability to borrow in the future... (20 page report continues here)

bulletSecurity Consultants Warn On Protect IP Act - Slashdot
This is not your usual group who wants less stringent enforcement of Intellectual Property laws. This is a group that is just looking at the technical requirement of the law. The law threatens the integrity of the DNS system and messes with DNS security. Beyond their objections are (not mentioned in the article) are legal ones. While US persons are supposed to get their day in court, it is not before their sites are taken down. Given the capricious nature of previous takedowns where thousands of absolutely innocent folks were accused of child porn distribution, it only shows this author that the real goal here has less to do with protecting IP, than with finding a legal way to get rid of sites the rich and powerful do not like and running them through the expensive maze of the US legal system in order to get themselves back up again. This is  a bad law whose real purpose is to slowly turn the internet into a corporate controlled entity. One that the corporations can easily afford to sue others and retain lawyers for themselves to abuse the law in their own interest. It could easily encourage the creation secret cartel agreements with its other members of the cartel to target individuals who they do not like.

bulletRich Folks Love Obama And Fill His Coffers - Bloomberg
While Obama gets ready to cut social security and Medicare the rich men of the earth are very pelased with him. Their Defense stock goes higher, their violent and explicit entertainment gets protected,  the billion dollar baby murder industry remains intact. The minions of Mammon are pleased while unemployment rises, poverty increases and the wars go forward with reckless abandon. Lucifer's minions have made their choice: Obama in 2012.

On Inauguration day, as  I watched Obama speak I knew this day would come. I saw the forces behind him as being the ones who would  do their level best to break the Social Contract with Americans and leave the 'black guy' to take the blame (not that it does not lay squarely with his policies, IT DOES). I saw it then and see it now though still millions of Democrats lack the intelligence and sophistication to see just where he has taken the nation these past two and a half years. Higher defense costs, three more wars... and counting, and expansion of our Global Gulag system, this time to put Black folks into. Get ready Black America.... they have a plan for you too. Yet I think the Lord has deliberately  blinded the eyes of so many Americans because their sins and evils have greatly enraged him. He is sick of looking at them and even their prayers are becoming an abomination to him. These are times (I say to those of you who are awake) when ignorance will kill you. Stupidity, especially willful stupidity will prove fatal as millions of Americans still live on denial street as to whom men like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, McConnell, McCain, Kerry, Clinton et. al are really working for and why there is little discernible difference between an Obama first term and a Bush thrid term. Obama could get get re-elected, but he will have to bow down to the NeoCons once again and do the 'yassuh boss foot shuffle' in order to do it.  I am not so sure four more years are that attractive to him. The personal cost to Obama after just 2.5 years has been enormous but frankly is almost totally of his own doing. He should never have cut those deals he did before the DNC convention nor the ones he cut to get key and very unpopular legislation passed. He has 'cut cards with the devil' and the only way to back into the White House in 2012 is to cut them again with the same luciferian entities.

Please do as the Lord commands and pray for our leaders, including and especially the President.

bulletConsumer Income Weakens - Bloomberg
Let the US go into any kind of default and millions of seniors not get their checks, civil servants not getting paid you will see a financial firestorm like never before if it lasts very long. Think about it. How many civil servants will not be able to pay their mortgage, buy gas, food etc. let alone normal consumer goods. The economy will quickly go into a tailspin from which it might not recover without some kind of legal protection from the administration barring banks from foreclosing on people who are not getting paid money owed to them by Uncle Sam. The worse case scenario, which is admittedly unlikely (but not impossible), is much worse than anyone (I do mean anyone in authority) is ever going to tell you.

________________



I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 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. (Rev 3:18-20)


Many Bible scholars have used the seven churches in the book of revelation as symbolic of the various Church ages. Laodicea being the very last Church of the age. I do not necessarily hold to that view, but will not contend with it either. This Church is rich and thinks it has need of nothing, yet Christ calls them poor, blind and naked. The city of Laodicea had a famous medical school and it produced a then renowned eye-salve known as collyrium. Christ is using a metaphor here to tell the Laodiceans that they need treatment for their optical condition. A blind man cannot see where he is going. A man who has no oil for his lantern cannot see where he is going in the darkness. Both are effectively blind men stumbling in the dark. This is not a condition which indicates a soul that will be saved, but one that is still lost. In our times we are seeing so many things that Christ warned us about fulfilled right before our eyes. Yet few understand the signs of the times. They are not looking as Christ warned us and as he and his Apostles so many times told us; Watch and Pray.

Why are so many Christians not watching? I will tell you. Because of a false gospel that is being preached in earnest that says you can mumble a few words, get baptized and that is all you have to do to get saved. There is no need to follow Christ's commandments, according to this new infernal doctrine. So when Christ said to watch, they don't. They have been taught that those words of Jesus are just suggestions. But I say to each of you that if he tells us to know the times and the seasons, we should know them. There are many parables and verses of scripture that shows that a key determinant to those who gain entry into the kingdom is an eye that is open and a heart that knows God's words and the prophesies of his coming. Why is that?

A real Christian will long for the coming of Christ and take Jesus at his word. They will not dilly-dally around about the things that God wants him or her to do. He or she is not going to wait around for divine Chastisement to hit them before they start doing the things Christ has so clearly laid out in his word. Watching is a sign of spiritual love and affection as well as a desire to leave this world for which no Christian should have undo love.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (1Jn 2:15-17)
In short watching and praying are evidences of genuine salvation rather than an onerous conditionality of it. If you really believe the gospel and that Christ is the Messiah you will do as he commands. Thus, in this respect it is the issue of real saving faith, verse the dead faith of the Laodicean Church. Here the issue is also one of love. It is an issue of which the Laodiceans failed, being lukewarm in their love for Christ. This is also evidenced by their blindness which is always followed by the unwillingness to obey Christ’s commandments.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (Joh 14:21)

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. (1Jn 5:2-3)

He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (1Jn 2:4)
In today's modern religious facilities that have taken upon themselves to name themselves Churches I always ask, 'where is the love, compassion and desire for holiness'? As I watch millions of alleged Christians support wars and violence throughout the world I shake my head as the results of their actions make it plain which spiritual force they are really serving. Around the world Christians are being murdered, slaughtered, beaten and burned as a direct result of a world wide military campaign supported by large swaths of American Christians. Their lack of love and discernment has done enormous damage to genuine Christians the world over. Their actions have made it nearly impossible to preach the gospel in many places in the world. They have fallen under a delusion that if they had really known Christ's commandments and known the prophetic signs of the times, they would never have made such fundamental spiritual errors and not fallen so deeply in love with the end time world system.
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Rev 18:24)

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. (Rev 17:6)
Rather than doing as Christ preached and sending in Bibles and Missionaries, they went into the ballot box and voted to send cruise missiles and killer drones instead, understandably inflaming millions of Muslims who more and more are looking on Christianity as their mortal foe, and they have the corpses of their dead relatives and friends to prove it.

Do you get angry when I quote a verse like that and refer it to America? To quote a famous Blues star's song, I have to ask, 'Who Do You Love'? Where are your true loyalties. Is it America first, or Christ? Who do you love, Christ or the world? What are you going to do when she turns on you and tells you to bow down, worship and image, take a mark or be killed?

In the Church of Laodicea I have always found it interesting that Christ had to stand outside of the Church door and knock in order to gain entry! Christ's saw their religion as nauseating and as a result he was about to vomit them out of his mouth.

In his hour blindness whether spiritual as in the Laodicean Church or because of failed lanterns, as in the case of the five foolish virgins is a condition that must be corrected if one is to see life eternal. These are days of incredible and increasing deception and if you cannot see that, you are among the deceived.

Nanny State? Feds 'In Control' of the situation? Food scare in Europe? I am all in favor of safe foods. I am not in favor of the way the FDA is using Federal money to quietly move into alternative medicines to run them out of business, brow beat family farmers at the behest of large food conglomerates to destroy that competition and allow unsafe substances on the market when large camping donations or a lucrative job in an effected regulated company is given to FDA bosses and vice versa. We can no longer afford the FDA's legalized corruption. The FDA needs to have its teeth removed and turn it more and more into an advisory body that advises States and Counties and take away its legal power until it can be radically reformed. The only way to give real impetus to that reform will be to take away the power first.

I can assure you that if you go into the ballot box and do what you have always done, our leaders will go into the House voting chamber and do what they have always done. Real change starts with your mind, your will and your choices.

Yahoo Caught Reading Users E-mails
All for money. They will spy on all of your mail without your permission according to the new terms and conditions. Dear readers, let me make this clear to all of you so listen up, I know how attractive all of these free email services are. They have all kinds of cool toolbars, graphics and eyecandy and they hook you up to all kinds of social networking sites, etc. If you do not mind all of your mail one day being posted on the net for all to see (that day is coming, mark my words) I honestly think getting rid of any US based free service is the very best thing you can do. Look at the trends, even Google is now deleting its private profiles. And yes I do mean any free service. Do you have any passwords in your email account to other credit card accounts, Amazon, etc? Guess who has them now. I think you should get a service that has rock solid terms and conditions and preferably (I hesitate to say essentially) outside of the US where the Patriot act cannot be secretly modified to give access to everything you do to anyone who pays and the government (or crooks inside it) who in turn sells it to some Chinese hacker or criminal gang for a campaign donation or some property in Hong Kong. I hesitate to give any recommendations but I do understand that Hushmail, while not perfect, will only hand over your mail with a valid warrant in pursuit of a criminal investigation. As far as I am concerned that is fine by me and the way all mail services should operate. Wanna look? Get a warrant. US based providers have become an arm of the DHS... you just have not and will not be told just who some of these providers really are. I hate to say it, but get your digital stuff out of the US and keep it encrypted in transmission (SSL/TLS) when it goes to the severs located outside of the US. If you have anything sensitive you want to send that you do not want read later for whatever reason, encrypt the message itself. Any good AES encryption is good enough. It is the only way to preserve any modicum of privacy in your email communications because our government and corporations are engaged in a gang rape of your privacy and has made it impossible for anyone in power to tell you why your digital backside is sore when you wake up. They have drugged us and digitally raped us while we were sleeping.

I know I can talk a little rough sometimes but I do it with permission (from the Lord) and for effect. Our communications are private and in some cases in a way, sacred to each of us. We all look down on eavesdroppers and Peeping Toms for good reason. They are of low moral character, have some serious 'issues' and cannot be trusted. Peeping Toms may one day turn to rape and that is what our Government is engaged in now in a digital sense. Protect yourself. If you have a Peeping Tom neighbor, close your blinds. If you have a peeping Tom Government, encrypt your messages.. outside of the perverts view.

Zbig Warns Of Social Unrest In America
Brezinksi is only now saying what I have warned about for years. Listen up, this crisis which was really hatched back in the 1990's by Bill Clinton and his economic policies (like repealing the Glass-Stegall act for starters). This was going to cause a repeat of the crisis that originally put that act into existence, namely the Great Depression. Why did we have a derivative crisis? The repeal of Glass-Stegall. Why do we have a mortgage crisis? The repeal of Glass-Stegall. Why did we have to and continue to bail out our major banks? The repeal of Glass-Stegall. Every 'reputable' economists blasted the notion that its repeal would be anything but a boon to the economy. Their opinions were spread far and wide in the US Financial press. They promised prosperity once it was passed. Look at our situation today. Well this nation has made its bed of nails and it is time to lay down on it and start bleeding in earnest with some heavy bricks of debt laying on our stomach to ensure maximum sanguinary effect. Even if Congress raises the debt limit, we will only delay the inevitable as our economy is already heading right back into recession because all of the economic stimulus is being withdrawn. What more stimulus? We will have to borrow even more.

Now look at America. We are a nation who has forgotten God and God has to a large part, given us over and the worst is yet to come. If we do not change our ways but quick, I see terrible trouble for America that will make the turmoil in Greece look like a lawn party. I know that we won't change. So brothers and sisters in Christ, get in your prayer closet and seek the Lord about what he would have you do. DO NOT FOLLOW AFTER THE WAYS OF THIS WICKED NATION. Remove yourself from every wicked work and seek safety in God's protective cover. Do not panic, trust in God, obey him and do not mimic or engage in the evils of our nation and world. Keep yourself from sin and America's myriad crimes.

Know this, God will look out for his own.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. (Pro 3:5-7)

Russian Orthodox Church Addresses Persecution And Aggressive Secularism

Obama Fully Embraces Homosexual Agenda
Time and time again I have seen this President find out what God wants men to do and then do the exact opposite. He knows is bible well enough to know what he is doing is wrong and has pastors who call and advice him, but still he wishes to placate the masses and support things like this. While I do realize that this is a secular nation, no longer under God and no longer a Christian one (Obama has said so to the world at large), his stances and Presidential signature consistently go against the God of heaven. From bailing out the rich at the expense of the poor, attacking Israel who while not perfect has a most important place in God's plan for salvation, despite their current sinfulness and rebellion, his cozying up to the worst persecutors of Christians in the world today (like the Saudi's) and his constant praise of those persecutors (Islam).

What is so sad in my eyes is that today anyone can call themselves a Christian. The word means nothing today. Rebels against God and his commandments, murderers, liars and thieves of every stripe call themselves Christian when in reality they are merely servants of the devil, deceiving and being deceived. There is a lot of blood on our Presidents hands as hardly a day passes where some one somewhere is not killed by Presidential bombs in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, or Libya. A lot of falsehoods are being told and a lot of crimes that you are not being told about are happening right now. But our leaders are a perfect reflection of our nation; violent, greedy, perverted, ignorant and spiritually lost. I am sad to see the President take such a stance at this time, but I am hardly surprised. More and more I just look in the Bible, find out what Christ wants us to do and know that our nation and leaders will do the opposite and then taunt God and say 'I don't see any lightning bolts' in a blasphemous display of arrogance. Does Obama really hate God? I do not know, but his anti-God actions sure do not give me any comfort. Nor do the many disasters that plague our nation from record breaking fires, nuclear plants that are under water, record breaking floods, a debt crisis that threatens us all, to our top military aircraft all being grounded. Yes, God is trying to send us a message but as long as the nation chooses evil over the good, you can count on more trouble to head out way at a time and place of his choosing. God knows how to get the nation's attention and if the only way to wake up the nation is to send America disaster after disaster until the nation has no more resources to aid those in need, that is what he will do. Because I can say this to you in the name of the Lord, "America, your sins will surely find you out. Repent, honor God and do what is right before worse things befall this once great nation!"
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. (Psa 9:17-18)

Why is America and even the EU having so many problems on so many fronts? Why is America fighting a losing battle against treason from within her halls of power? Because she has forgotten God and chosen the ways of satan instead. the ways of endless war, torture, lies, murder, thefts, sodomy and hate. America will fare worse and worse until these issues are dealt with in a spiritual fashion. If she will not, God has a plan for that eventuality as well, let the reader understand.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. (Rev 17:15)

Has Obama Declared War On Natural Dietary Supplements?
The FDA, in other words, is now gearing up to gut the natural products industry, bankrupt vitamin retailers and enslave the American people in a system of failed chemical medicine where they now have zero options for natural nutritional therapies. This, of course, would cause chronic disease rates to explode across the nation, greatly enriching the pharmaceutical industry and cancer treatment centers, all of which must be cheering these proposed new rules as a great way to recruit new patients who can then be milked for profits. But synthetic drugs need no notification approval!



DOD Corruption Chronicles: Spending Database Full Of Errors
A database for multi-million-dollar Pentagon contracts is geographically challenged, and has repeatedly confused the Central Asian petro-state of Turkmenistan for the American petro-state of Texas.

Hundreds of Pentagon contracts appear to have been wrongly categorized in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS), the central statistical database of all US government contracts. Defense spending specialists now say there are “significant concerns” about the reliability of Pentagon contracts in the FPDS and warn that “bad data” can mislead decision makers.


DOD Corruption Chronicles: Army's $2.7 Billion Intelligence Computer Doesn't Work

This looks More and More Like a 1930s Re-Run
The 1930s is remembered in the United States as a period of economic despair, with unemployment well into double digits throughout the decade and a generation’s lives ruined. In Britain it is remembered as a “Gathering Storm” with satisfactory economic performance after 1932 marred by an increasing fear about the inevitability of future conflict with Germany and the other totalitarian dictatorships. The current global situation is taking on unpleasant similarities to both those versions of that unhappy decade.

Warnings To Germany On Supra-nationalism And Collapse
"...claims that the supranational structure of the EU was necessary to secure peace in Europe, so that conflicts between nations could not erupt as in the past, have predictably turned out to be mere self-serving propaganda. The opposite, in fact, is the case: In Greece and Spain, hundreds of thousands have poured onto the streets with banners depicting the symbol of the EU with a swastika superimposed; Angela Merkel is being depicted as a neo-colonial despot; formerly good relations between Greeks, Spaniards, etc. and Germans have long been supplanted by deep mutual bitterness, whereby each side believes that the other is living at their expense. The imposition of the euro from above, without a popular vote in a single member country, has undermined peace in Europe, and dangerously so.

And thus, the second argument—namely, that a united Europe must exist under the EU so that Europe can hold its own, with growing influence, vis-à-vis the other great world powers—has led into absurdity, because a Europe forced into unity in which member-states hate each others' guts, along with a collapsing Eurozone which is just about to do away entirely with its high-technology sector, is not going to impress China, India, Russia, or the United States.

EU Firesale... Everything Must Go!!!
Read it carefully, the rich, the powerful and the bankers who are getting 'paid back' by taxpayers for their bad investments are now buying up state assets with the money they can take out of State Treasuries. They are privitizing the assets and putting key State sectors into private hands (corporations). National airports, Airlines, Energy resources and companies, insurance companies, air traffic control Systems... these are all going private, sold to the highest (or most politically connected) buyer. Yes even court houses are being sold off. But this frankly, as we begin to look in retrospect, was what this crisis more and more looks like it was really all about. The money we bailed out the banks with is now being used to buy up state assets and put it into private hands. The longer this 'crisis' lasts, the more assets will wind up in the hands of men whose name we do not even know, are not answerable to the people, but to nameless faces who sit on its Board of directors and its major stockholders. This is the future model of government so keep you eyes on this because this juggernaut is heading to America.
What a year! 2010 was unlike any other in financial history, and particularly in the history of privatization, in that it saw the largest share offering ever--indeed the largest security offering of any type—as well as the largest initial public offerings in world and in U.S. history. This year also set records both for the most active quarter ever for initial public offerings (and the second highest annual total) and for the largest annual value of privatization sales ($213.6 billion; €159.9 billion) since the phenomenon of state divestments began over four decades ago. 2010 also witnessed the full emergence of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) countries as major financial players and the continuing shift of financial power eastwards, towards Asia. To top off this amazing year, the United States reprised its surprising role as the world’s largest privatizer for the second year running, while China, Brazil, France, Turkey, Poland, and India accounted for ranks two through seven. - Privitization Barometer 2010


The concern folks have for what is happening is not an academic exercise for these deals will ultimately and deeply effect how our world will be governed through democratic institutions or Corporate board rooms. I would like you all to take a look at the frontal media assault that went on on our July 4th Holiday on the US Constitution. Indeed, the Time magazine see's the US Constitution as the enemy of a Globalized Economy.
"We cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to a future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, and evolving sense of civil and political rights.” - Time
In other words the Globalized Economy and 'evolving' civil rights are the enemy of The Constitution and therefore, the Constitution must be done away with. These false choices have been idea's that our establishment has been trying to slam into America's head for a long time. Let us take a look at another article that more fully explains the 'Globalized economy, that Americans are not seeing or being told about.
"The sovereignty of Greece will be massively limited."
- Jean Claude Juncker, Eurogroup Chairman
Greece has been forced to accept a massive 'austerity' package in order to bail out global investors. National assets are going on the chopping block and jobs will disapperar. Not to digress too much, but the banks are balking at any move to assist Greece in which any amount comes out of their own pockets.

But my point is a simple one, in the eyes of establishment mouthpieces like Time, the Globalized Economy is more important that the rights and laws that our nation were founded on and made us the greatest and most prosperous nation on earth. What is lost in the debate (but known to the elite) is that the more and more we 'Globalize', the more indebted and less affluent we as a nation have become. An 'evolving sense of 'Civil Rights' means torture camps, holding people without trial for years on end and endless war without any Congressional input. And as far as access to affordable health care, nowhere does the Constitution prevent this from happening. The real problem is forcing people who are already financially strapped to pay for a corporate/cartel controlled health insurance, which has become an expensive luxury a great many simply cannot afford. Time's careful propaganda piece is laying the blame not where it belongs, but on the enemy of the new form of government that is arising in the world and is showing its ugly face in Greece. Austerity, national enslavement to banks and the loss of national sovereignty and key assets heading into the hands of the rich and powerful. In a word it is a modernized and updated version of fascism.

Money and real assets are falling out of public hands and into fewer and fewer private hands. This is the real issue and if there is any obstacle to the further amalgamation of assets out of the public and into private hands in America, it is the US Constitution. Time just painted a bullseye and a red dot laser sight on it to better aim hits high power rifle.

Given the backdrop of the last story, let us take a look at a trend that has hit the newswires with alarming speed with the help of some of the real 'good guys' in the news world.

Brazil and China

These two giants are close and getting much closer in terms of politics, economics and (unbeknownst to many) Intelligence sharing. China has gone to enormous lengths to woo Brazil in an economic sense and her economic serenades have paid off tremendously. Over the past week we have seen several news stories on just how close the two are. Here are a few and I do ask you to read them or if in Video form to check it out.

China And Brazil Warm Up Business, Culture Ties

China invests heavily in Brazil, elsewhere in pursuit of political heft

China’s Interest in Farmland Makes Brazil Uneasy
I can tell you that no one inside the US government was seriously looking into this issue until very, very recently. While voices like me were crying in the wilderness about China's entry and activities in our Hemisphere, our government was too busy inspecting medically necessary diapers of its elderly and incapacitated air travelers to be bothered with it. Sadly, the thrust of US intelligence efforts has been overly occupied with the nebulous, poorly defined and very lucrative policies of counter-terrorism and has let far more menacing and important issues fall through the cracks. This is just one example.

But thankfully there are some out in the hinterlands and in the 'non politically correct' parts of the world who are not so obsessed, blinded and/or co-opted. They can come up with some very cogent and insightful pieces that hit the nail on the head couple of years ago and for a fraction of the cost it would cost the US government to produce.
Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s high-profile visit to Beijing last month deserves close examination for the light it sheds on the geo-strategic shifts taking place in the shadow of the deepening capitalist crisis. The defiant tone of the speeches, the ambitious agenda for long-term collaboration and the breadth and scope of the 13 bilateral agreements signed say a good deal about the enormous vacuum in world affairs left by a weakened United States tied down in two wars and desperately struggling to resolve its own colossal financial and industrial catastrophe.

As the present crisis has unfolded it has become apparent that Washington has simply run out of resources to maintain the tight control it once exercised over Latin America.

The economic agreements signed between China and Brazil and the joint pledge for long-term bilateral collaboration have global significance.

The fastest growing economy in the world, China ranks third in terms of GDP with $4.4 trillion, according to the IMF. China’s growth is on course to overcome Japan’s (second largest GDP in the world with $4.9 trillion) within the next two to three years. Furthermore, economists estimate that given China’s growth, it can catch up to the US in the next quarter of a century (US statistics: $14.3 trillion GDP or 25 percent of world GDP, down from nearly 50 percent in the 1950s). - WSWS
I could quote you facts and figures on this, but the news articles (above) do a pretty good job as it is doing that, I will not reinvent the wheel here and rehash what is already linked to. But here is a graphic that may help explain just what is going on and how much money is involved.



Now if you took the time to really read those links you are in a better position to internalize what follows.

First of all China and Brazil are targeting the US. How are they doing it? We will discuss two ways here. The first is economic subversion. They have done exhaustive and highly technical work in determining which industry sectors they can use to undermine the US. The main tool they are using? Free Trade, specifically NAFTA. They are using free trade against us and are using this and other hemishephreic trade agreements as a weapon to undermine the US economic position. Bear this in mind - this is extremely sophisticated and exceptionally well thought out and is being implemented now, not 20 years from now. They are doing economic research in the US our own leaders should be doing if they were really concerned about US jobs.

They aren't.

Thus, agreements and contracts are being arranged with companies that use trade ties that cannot be nixed because of existing free trade treaties and agreements. They undermine US companies by undercutting them and driving them out of business. This brings us to the second way they are undermining the US. In the political arena. They are so well honed into the US political system that they know that when this or that deal goes through or this or that contract is signed, they know within a small margin for error just how many US jobs will be lost, how much of the tax base will be lost right down to the State and County level. They know which congressional districts will be most vulnerable and thus, they shift money and support according to their interests. If you mistakenly think the Chinese Government is our friend you are mistaken. It is as I have told my readers many times, one of the main reasons the US cannot really retaliate against China for its myriad acts of sabotage right here on the US mainland and will find it increasingly difficult to do so in a military sense for the foreseeable future is that the US cannot be certain that if she puts a ship off the coast of China that many of her high tech weapons systems will not be remotely shut down by China or our powergrids, water systems, TeleCom grids which have all kinds of Chinese made chips and parts in them, cannot also be remotely shut down wither via the internet or by remote satellite command (a capability that has already been demonstrated on a mass scale in Rio but whose cause has not been revealed to the world at large as too many powerful Americans are making too much money in China and do not want to jeapordize their lucrative contracts and deals as a full revelation of China's activities would surely do).

So today there is great significance in the Chinese Brazilian partnership. Raw materials and energy are the ones everyone is watching carefully. But also China is gaining a foothold in Brazil's telecommunication sector. The Chinese company Huawei has given Brazil a $30 billion credit for both Brazil and NAFTA participant Mexico. Consider that NAFTA makes barring goods from Mexico nearly impossible as the US Mexico and Canada are part of a free trade zone. Telecom is just one area of cooperation and economic subversion the Chinese are engage in and the very real potential for various kinds of technological subversion is very real.. Remember the F-22.

Why are our leaders so slow on the uptake to see what is happening when many intelligence analysts and even some principles have been sounding the alarm about China and her activities for years? Because of internal subversion of some of her political class. Many are making a mint off of deals with China, others have been turned by the Chinese years ago and sit in positions of great power still others want to prove their worth to the Chinese and get rich in the process. Herein lies the achilles heel of America. No one who commits these act of treason is ever going to go to jail, unless they are at the very lowest rank (like that low level sergeant in the Wikileaks investigation or those low level NCO's in the Abu Ghraib investigation). The real folks who hand over reams of our most sensitive secrets to China never see the inside of prison, but retire at leisure on generous government pensions immune from any kinds of investigations from the Justice Department. They sell out, their controllers step up to protect their intelligence assets. You can find the entire (unclassified version) of the Congressional Select Committee's report on just some of how China has suberted America in this exhaustive unclasified report.

The Cox Report

My advice to all of my readers said not in jest? Learn to speak Chinese because they have already won this game.

Even now, high administration officials are doing the leg work for China in obstructing and aiding other Chinese assets inside the government and blocking key investigations done by law enforcement and intelligence agencies. I say this specifically in the realm of Campaign financing, but not exclusivley. While there are many good men and women out there who are trying to put a stop to this, they have enormous political obstacles to overcome. The sell-out is so bad that in some cases, investigators are not bothering to inform their bosses whom they know are Chinese agents (or in the pay of drug cartels or other criminal players) when they investigate treason and or other serious crimes that touch on the National Security. When one of the military officers who tracked the torpedo's that struck Deep Horizon was asked about what really happened by government investigators right after it happened in order to get he real skinny to the President, he answered, "I have a family, I do not want to wind up floating in the Potomac". So great is the hesitation to give the real story even inside US military circles. Insiders know the deal and are afraid. Once again, the truth has been hidden from Americans because the folks who did this dastardly deed have some powerful protectors inside this (the last and almost certainly the next) Presidential administration. So the good guys inside the government must take the Nike approach when investigating. They 'just do it'. Dear readers, the system is far more rotten than most of you can imagine and your worry is not going to be a 'New World Order' as is being advertised on a million and one blogs, but subversion from within by players in the BRIC nations who have no love for America and are determined to undercut, undermine and eventually control her and are well on their way to doing so. Without a complete housecleaning of America's extremely corrupt political class, this is a done deal. We have underestimated China at every turn. I see no way for the US to get out of the traps that have been laid for us. Too many people in America's political class are making too much money in China doing their bidding and the rope has already been slung over the tree. The victims hands are now being bound to prepare him for the upcoming air dance... swinging and convulsing from the end of the rope that we sold to the Chinese hangman for 30 pieces of silver.

Obama Backs Massive Cuts In Social Spending
He refuses to cut military spending, DHS spending and uses fake issue of minor tax increases on the rich as a 'fig leaf'. Was it not Obama who gave the rich massive tax cuts while raising them on the poorest? Given this Presidents abysmal track record of keeping his word, we simply cannot take what he says at face value and will have to wait and see what he actually signs and what the bill actually says (rather than the spin). Then we will be able to see just how deep the Neocons have their hooks into him.

But in Obama's defense, we do need those tax hikes, (despite the hot air you will hear from deficit hawks, bought and paid for 'Libertarians' and other economic disinformants in the debate) the gap between what we spend and what we take in is so great that any realistic plan will require both tax increases and spending cuts. Real tax hikes that bring in real cash into the Treasury... not paid for by the poor and increasingly squeezed middle class workers, that is one big thing we need. The GOP do not really want to solve this crisis, they want to keep it going as long as possible to shift as much of Uncle Sam's money to themselves in the form of military and security contracts, tax breaks and sweetheart legislation. They will talk a good game about 'creating jobs' and 'spurring innovation'. But the jobs created will employs few if any Americans as the jobs will continue to be shifted overseas and the money they earn in profits will be tax free, sitting in an account in the Cayman Islands. Their plan is another recipe for economic failure ala Enron and the 2008 economic collapse; they get the money, we get the bills. Victimizing the poor and the old in order to prop up a violent military empire is no recipe for success, it is the road to moral, spiritual and economic ruin. I am not trying to be too hard on either side. The simple truth is both sides need to come down to earth and do what is best for the nation and not just the narrow interests of their constituents and campaign donors. Neither side is willing to do that and from where I sit, this applies especially the GOP. A debt default will have significant and long lasting effect on millions of people.

On that note let me make it clear that my sources have intimated to me that these disasters (fires, etc) are not caused by, as far as anyone can determine, an organized third party. While some of the fires may have had human origin, carelessness, not conspiracy is the likely cause. As far as China is concerned I can only tell you that on the homefront they have been exceptionally quiet for several months for reasons I cannot share.

I have avoided cloud services (and social networking sites) like the plague it actually is. Any business person or corporation who has any kind of sensitive data would be wise to do the same. You might as well hand over your trade secrets to your competitors because if it is in the cloud, that is where it will wind up.... perhaps with a little help from Uncle Sam.

As America forgets God, God will forget us, but our national sins will ever be remembered. It is all a sign of the rising Luciferian state.

Yet to those who love God, I say (and pray) God's Grace and peace to each of you. May God in his mercy, grace and love watch over and protect each of you who calls upon the name of the Lord in spirit and in truth. Great troubles are on the way as well as many great changes. The Lord has made it plain they are coming, but if we have faith in God, trust in him and obey his voice, he will see us through them all and guide us into life eternal. Do not fret over the evil and apostasy of our leaders either in government or in the Church. See them as signposts of the lateness of the hour, for these things were long ago prophesied. We were warned beforehand by the Lord, the Prophets and the Holy Apostles that these things would come to pass. He told us so that we would know that God knows and is not taken unawares and that we would rest in God's soveriegnty over all things. He is not shocked by the sinfulness of men. Stand firm upon the Rock of Jesus Christ, let not your faith fail you in this hour and whatever task God has given you to do, no matter how humble, do it and do it without murmurings and doubt.

Keep yourselves from sin and all manner of defilement. If married, know that God will judge adulterers (Heb 13:4), if single he will Judge fornicators (1 Cor 6:13), if you have gay tendencies, he will judge sodomites (Lev 20:13). Let those who have sinned in the past repent (stop sinning), come to the cross for forgiveness and in so doing, learn to forgive others who may have wronged you.

Are you confused and dismayed about what is happening in our world? Know that God is not the author of confusion, but of peace (1Cor 14:33). Confusion is the devils business and he has done a number on millions of nominal Christians who do not know their Bibles nor the signs of Christ's return. Know that he warned us over and over again to know and watch for the signs of his coming, lest we are cast out for not knowing the times of our visitation. Remember the parable of the 10 virgins, five wise, five foolish; five got in and five were lost.

I realize many of the stories I post here at Watson's Web are not upflifting or heartwarming. That is because the darkness that is now encompassing the globe is a most serious matter and will only get worse. Much, much worse. We must be aware of what we are dealing with on all levels so that we make act with wisdom, knowing that the days are evil (Eph 5:16). But know that God has wonderful inheritance for any and all who forsake their sins and call upon his name in spirit and in truth. So be encouraged brothers and sisters in Christ because if you read the last book in the Bible you will discover that through many trials and tribulations... We win!!!

30,000 Barrels Of Nuclear Waste At Risk?

War Spending: $3.7 Trillion and Counting
Obama lied about the real cost? Rather than answer that, I will ask a question. When has he ever spoken true? While up in Fredrick yesterday, I listened to CSPAN radio and heard Joe Lieberman talk about how we must cut entitlements. He went on and on about Medicare and how costs were set to explode. Never once did I hear him mention war costs having already exploded and set to make bigger explosions in the years ahead. His gripe was with Medicare.

The real problem is America's love affair with death. It loves to make 'tough decisions' that put people in the grave. Our wars, which cost trillions kill, our abortion industry which earns billions for the murderers kills and now Lieberman and his GOP buddies want to do the 'silent kill' of the old by reducing health care. Why is there a curse on our finances? America's obsession with death.

Let America turn from this horrible obsession and talk about life, helping others rather than dropping bombs on them at the drop of a hat or when a poll that indicates you are 'weak' on National Security. Put the 'wise old men' Senators whose only real contribution to the nation has been the number of dead people they can count (McCain/Kerry/Graham/Clinton, etc.) and how many Bombs we can make, out to pasture. We need them like we need a hooded man on a Pale horse carrying a sickle traversing our land.

It is their kind of thinking that is destroying the American dream as well as the lives of countless millions (yes millions) of people, who have died, been crippled, made into refugees as a result of our wars, driven and pushed by these men and women whose primary service has been to the 'hooded one'.

Overwhealming Majority Of Americans Want Privacy Protected
Great news. Privacy is really becoming an issue. Why isn't Congress acting? Because they cannot, at least not effectively. To give you the protection you want would require some provisions of the Patriot Act that you have not been told about to be done away with. I read another poll that the said Americans are not concerned so much if the Government tracks, but are when Companies do it. Well, know this and internalize it. Uncle Sam has persuaded and coerced (yes coerced) most of you major technology companies to spy on their customers and provide the data to the Government. This is what happened with the Illegal wiretapping scandal (that required a congressional immunity act because it was a clear cut crime) and why you will find that some of the places on the net you go to are not who they appear to be and why the software on your computer is talking to someone (and I am not talking about innocent update servers) without your knowledge. We have had Senators recently tell the nation that the spying goes far beyond what Americans are even vaguely aware of. The US has used Corporations to facilitate it and in return, the Government gives them all kinds of perks in secret (contracts? removal from regulatory oversight? Support for monopolistic mergers? A seat at the table when government policies are formulated). Laws, in our governments eyes are unnecessary encumbrances that must be overcome, not obeyed. So what am I saying, that Wiretapping, government spying and all manner of information sharing are going on with secret government... approval? No. I am saying that it is being done at Secret government direction and God help anyone who refuses. Seems like I remember an organization in Germany that forced folks to spy for them. They were called the Schutz Staffel or, SS. 'Schutz' being the German world for protection. Tyranny always uses the words 'protection' and 'security' to come to and amalgamate power. Ever heard of the Department of Homeland .... Security? There is a strategem behind the stories you hear that humiliates Americans who abide by the law and searches and seizes things without warrant or cause. What is that stratagem? To evicerate your rights... all of them in favor of government 'security'. What is the enemy of this new definition of 'Government security'? The US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. That is what they are going after. Little by little, bit by bit.

I ask all of my readers to sit down and consider exactly what I am telling you. Consider that about 95% of all email on the net is readily accessible by the government. Consider that just after Google and the NSA got in bed together, debate centered around how much information should the government have ready access to in terms of email (though Google's name was not mentioned in the news articles). If I remember correctly, the actual contents of your mail are fairly safe from most (but not all) snooping, but your contacts and social networking friends, news alerts, etc, are fair game. No warrant, no probably cause, someone gets bored and wants to know more about you inside the Government, they click a button and the data appears. Consider you Christians our there who like to mail your friends or have email lists that what you have done every time you hit that send button on ANY free email service is provide a future persecutor of the saints with the names, emails, addresses of all the Christians you know. Please do not kid yourself as to the spiritual darkness of the men and women who run and will run American in the not too distant future. They are gathering information and they do plan on using it against you, just not in the ways they are telling you today. Be wise as serpents and as harmless as doves. Our nation is broke and in order to get more money to borrow we will have to bow down to creditors who are seriously liquid and would love to see every bible burned, Christian enslaved or dead. Good men are increasingly not running America. Rather men of deceit whose pockets bulge with bribes (legal and illegal) are now more and more in charge. Things are only going to get worse.

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (2Ti 3:13)

Two nuke plants on the verge of a major disaster (one state over from my own - up-wind and up-river!).
A out of control, raging fire bearing down on "Los Alamos lab, source of world's largest supply of nuclear weapons".
"The speed at which the fire has grown has stunned fire officials" ( http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wxel/news.newsmain/article/0/0/1820761/National/Fast-moving.wildfire.nears.Los.Alamos.nuclear.lab )
Cooling pump fails at New Jersey reactor... ( http://www.nj.com/salem/index.ssf/2011/06/sakem_unit_2_nuclear_reactor_s.html )
Looks like one dragon or another has talon marks all over this one. =/
*sigh!*


America's War In Yemen To Intensify

Obama Continues Terror Campaign In Waziristan
"The toll in Mandoi is expected to continue to rise through the evening, as people were continuing to be pulled from the rubble." Perhaps I am a little too hard on Obama as he is under enormous pressure from the Pentagon to escalate the war, not draw it down. But the reality is this, he and only he has the power to stop this and he hasn't and won't. Women and children being killed? Of course they are being killed, why do you think the DOD will never release pictures of our attacks to the American voter? ... and they wonder why so many Pakistani's want us out and are beginning to hate us and are turning to the militants and militantism. We may have made some minor progress in Afghanistan, but only at the expense of creating a much bigger problem in Pakistan.

How Long Before You Die Of Thirst?
Water. This is an issue I talked about some time ago and I am glad someone has done a professionally produced video on this issue because sooner or later, it is going to effect each and every person in a very real way as it s already doing in many places in the third world. The rich men of the earth are buying up all life sustaining materials (water, food, medicine) because they have a plan. Read your bibles about the system in the end times and the horrible death toll it brings upon the earth and the even worse judgment that falls on that system. Jesse has done some excellent work and has some sources of information that are top-notch. Before you think Jesse is operating in the ozone, let's see what our own CIA say about these trends?

"Aging populations in the developed world; growing energy, food, and water constraints; and worries about climate change will limit and diminish what will still be an historically unprecedented age of prosperity''

"Resource issues will gain prominence on the international agenda. Unprecedented global economic growth—positive in so many other regards—will continue to put pressure on a number of highly strategic resources, including energy, food, and water, and demand is projected to outstrip easily available supplies over the next decade or so.''

"Lack of access to stable supplies of water is reaching critical proportions, particularly for agricultural purposes, and the problem will worsen because of rapid urbanization worldwide and the roughly 1.2 billion persons to be added over the next 20 years. Today, experts consider 21 countries, with a combined population of about 600 million, to be either cropland or freshwater scarce. Owing to continuing population growth, 36 countries, with about 1.4 billion people, are projected to fall into this category by 2025.''

"New technologies could again provide solutions, such as viable alternatives to fossil fuels or means to overcome food and water constraints. However, all current technologies are inadequate for replacing the traditional energy architecture on the scale needed, and new energy technologies probably will not be commercially viable and widespread by 2025.''

"The buildup of regional naval capabilities could lead to increased tensions, rivalries, and counterbalancing moves but it also will create opportunities for multinational cooperation in protecting critical sea lanes. With water becoming more scarce in Asia and the Middle East, cooperation to manage changing water resources is likely to become more difficult within and between states."

"Access to relatively secure and clean energy sources and management of chronic food and water shortages will assume increasing importance for a growing number of countries during the next 15-20 years. Adding well over a billion people to the world’s population by 2025 will itself put pressure on these vital resources. An increasing percentage of the world’s population will be moving from rural areas to urban and developed ones to seek greater personal security and economic opportunity.''

" Climatically, rainfall anomalies and constricted seasonal flows of snow and glacial melts are aggravating water scarcities, harming agriculture in many parts of the globe.''

"Clean water is set to become the world’s scarcest but most-needed natural resource because of new demands resulting from population increases and expectations that climate changes will reduce natural fresh water sources in some areas. Demand will increase for water for domestic use, as well as for agriculture (including new biopharma and biofuel crops) and industry processes.''

- All Quotes From the CIA's Global Trends 2025 Report


It is nice to see a former military member like Mr. Ventura get out and warn folks about what is really happening. It is going to take thousands of folks coming out of the shadows of the Intel and 'Black' world to start telling folks what is really happening, what is coming and what it is going to mean to them. They must be told that Paris Hilton's newest dress or Brad and Angelina's family life are corporate distractions to keep you from finding out what these men plan on doing to (rather than for) you in the near future. It must NOT be done in a way that harms the nation but one that makes a last ditch effort to try and save it. Our politicians are not going to do it, they are taking money from foreign nations and corporations and are for the most part, extremely corrupt and are betraying the nation for a campaign donation, or a job at some major corporation after they finish betraying you. Despite what you may hear out here in cyberspace some of the folks inside the CIA, inside the DOD's sprawling intelligence apparatus, Treasuy's Intelligence unit and even over at State's Intel service are just as alarmed as I am over what is happening and the stubborn ignorance of still far, far too many Americans. Some get so disgusted with the treason going on, they just walk out the door, buy a ticket to 'anywhere but here' and make their homes there.

As an aside for a long time the water safety chart for my County was not posted online as the County required it to be. They just did not post it. One person I know gave me the skinny as to why. The water quality had deteriorated significantly and may not have meet standards.

Rising AntiChrist Spirit Sweeps The Globe
An Islamic mob attacked Christian homes and threatened a priest last Saturday. Egypt has long standing, no so subtle propaganda campaign against Christians and Jews. Meanwhile Iran heated up is Islamic rhetoric against Christians residing in Iran. Meanwhile in America, the Mayor Of Babylon The Great (a place the Bible calls an abomination, the mother of whores and abominations of the earth), urges 'gay' couples to migrate to New York. This said in light of the State's recent decision to legally recognize 'Gay' Marriages (unrepetanant sodomy). My words here may be harsh but few are really warning America about her abominations. My job is to warn the nation and the apostate Churches, not convince them. Let my warnings be met with shrills of laughter for in one hour, the harlot will be no more and for her residents who die in her most horrible judgment, let me warn you here and now and for the eternal record (you blood will not be required at my hand) that is just the beginning of their troubles.

Let them laugh while large parts of the US are now underwater in record breaking flooding, homes are destroyed, record breaking fires devour thousands of acres of land and threaten nuclear facilities in the Southwest including Los Alamos Let them mock on while America teeters on a debt default that will bring down the global financial system and the pride of her military technological Air Force is grounded due almost certainly to treason, driven by cost-cutting.. So America. Go right ahead, keep sticking that middle finger in God's eye, he is patient not wanting any to perish, but the LORD is no pansy and will return your insolence with fury and wrath that shall never be quenched.


Take heed, it is better to repent now that face God's wrath later.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (2Pe 3:9-10)

Pentagon Cuts 'On The Table'?

UN Troops To Head To Abyei

Flood Berm Collapses At Nebraska Nuke Plant
Not a good development. I am watching the 'information management' being used here in US news reporting. A few days ago official pronouncements said they did not expect the water to rise above the flood barriers and that the waters were subsiding. But I saw in many other reports that never mentioned the reactor, that said more water was heading (clearly but not stated) in the Plants direction. Those stories always failed make any reference to the plant. Whenever the plant was mentioned, it as the line that flood waters were not supposed to breach the barriers. Each time the words 'no cause for concern' and 'no danger' was used with repetitiveness across news reporting. The Feds? Lost in Space and are not telling us anything at all.

Syria Reinforces Northern Border As Signs Of Conflict Grow
According to the article, the Turks may create a buffer zone inside Syria. Meanwhile, reports of atrocities are being recorded by western officials. Iran and Turkey are divided over events in Syria and regional tensions are likely to grow as Assad continues his rampage against his own people and moves troops much closer to Lebanon.

Why The Jobs Situation Is Worse Than It Looks
"Today, over 14 million people are unemployed. We now have more idle men and women than at any time since the Great Depression. Nearly seven people in the labor pool compete for every job opening. Hiring announcements have plunged to 10,248 in May, down from 59,648 in April. Hiring is now 17 percent lower than the lowest level in the 2001-02 downturn. One fifth of all men of prime working age are not getting up and going to work." - Forbes/Zero Hedge

The article is a very good read and not too long. To add insult to injury, is the problem of part time employment. A man may find a job and get taken off of the unemployment statistics, but often he has only found part-time or casual work. These numbers rival and even surpass those of the Great depression. The only reason we have not seen the bread lines and hobo's of that era is because of Social Safety nets created in the days following those dark years. What also needs to be kept in mind is that these jobs are being decimated despite the fact that we have had unprecedentd economic stimuli pumped into our economy by both the Obama administration (who pushed hard for it) and the Fed. I was never a big fan of either program but as long as Wall Street was getting so much money, main street deserved at least the meager help the Stimulus was supposed to bring in. It has not done much good, but it is hard to say just how much worse things would be without it. From even before this crisis, I know I did my best to tell my readers that this economy is a sham and that another depression was sure to come. I wrote a long series of articles over a couple of year period about it and was duly ignored by most (but thankfully not all). I was one of the few who actually and truly predicted what we are seeing now and am telling you that this is just be beginning of our troubles. Our leaders have intentionally wrecked the US economy with trade deals, treason and debt and what you are seeing is was the unavoidable consequences of leaders who were in the pay of interests hostile to the American citizen and worker. This link may help some of you to see how bad things are in some places with many charts showing employment rates. This crisis is still in its early stages and is not going to go away until some significant changes are made in Washington. Changes only the victims of these long term economic trends can make at the ballot box.

The men and women in Washington today, Democrat and Republican will try and sound like they care as we move into the election season. But as much as you can, look and see where they are getting their money and find out who is running ads that favor either party/candidate. Much of that money is coming from China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mexican drug lords and the UAE as well as other most unsavory places. These are just some of the places sending billions (with a 'B') onto US shores to fund our/their candidates (these nation are not guesswork on my part). Iran? You may ask. Yes, Iran. They have long had a dream to own a US President and are working tirelessly to bring it about. The US Supreme Court has helped their cause far more than a ten-thousand car bombs or an Iranian nuclear bomb ever could. I am only repeating what investigators have told me. The story is much worse that I will say on the net because you have some very powerful folks who are facilitating all of this illicit money who are very close to the President as well as other movers and shakers on the other side of the Aisle Sadly, I think Obama is just powerless to stop it. If he had any real power, he could launch a thorough investigation into a couple of Supreme Court Justices into racketeering and bribery, if he really wanted to change that ruling and the increasingly corrupt rulings coming from it. That is one powerful gift he could give to the nation who entrusted its highest office to him. Make sure that Judicial independence does not mean Judicial arrogance and criminality.

But things are pretty bad. Indeed some Iranians here in the US have been coerced into helping out Iran, even though they have no love at all for the regime in Tehran. How are they coerced? First they are gently recruited by Iranian agents here in the US. When that fails (it usually does) they go to plan B. Plan B. goes like this;, one night about three AM they get a phone call. The caller tells them to go on their Skype account and await a phone call... it is urgent. When they pick up the Phone, Aunt Aisha is sitting in a room with a man who has a Gun pointed to her head. Then the man is told quite simply and convincingly that either they cooperate or Aisha is dead as well as any other relatives he many have residing in Iran. What can this ultimately mean to America. Click over here and change the words 'Clinton' and 'China' with the words 'Next President' and 'Iran'.

I am only telling you these things, long known to me now, because Americans must understand what is at stake in 2012 and why you need to be wary of anyone with a large campaign war chest. Remember Obama, he had one and broke every promise he made. That is what you will see with ANY CANDIDATE WITH BIG MONEY WHO MAKES PROMISES. They will all be lies because the only promises he will keep are the ones he makes in the back room with his donors who speak English, Mandarin, Farsi, Arabic, and Spanish... not necessarily in that order. Some of you have laughed at my 'magic dust' analogy when our politician will talk about jobs. Keep that in mind when you hear contenders or Obama talk about jobs. If they are not serious about changing those trade agreements and dealing with job offshoring, they are blowing smoke in your eyes. And do not expect you major financial news organizations to talk about it, their bread and butter is in advertising and their advertisers are benefiting tremendously from wrecking US jobs.

Wake up America, time has almost run out.


Who Controls The Internet?

Perhaps this would be better titled who could control the Internet as for the time being, the US is in form control of the major naming and regulatory parts of the Internet. This is not an academic discussion because the US will, in my opinion, begin to head into some serious headwinds over internet control, domain takedowns, surveillance, etc. While America has in many ways been a great light for freedom of expression and speech, trends in place have caused many at home and abroad to rethink the current models of internet control. Some nations are far ahead of the game. China for example, has her own internet with her own routers etc that simply connects to the outside world. Should the US take down the internet, it would not greatly effect China because she never liked the idea of the US having control of such a vital part of her infrastructure and made her infrastructure accordingly. She is not the only one that has taken some kind of steps to protect themselves, as much from too much 'free speech' of her citizens, but also against too much control and spying from outside forces. Such a feat is not too difficult to do, but it can be expensive. One must run their own cables routers and have an alternate naming and registration authority for domains (sites). Once that is done, having cut off switches to the outside world and you nave your own internal internet. Could this be the future of the internet? Yes, it is possible, probably not highly likely but certainly possible.

Many nations are not happy with America's dominance of the internet and resent some of the high handed tactics being used now to use its current control of the net to give enormous power to what is called 'content' providers. Note that some nations are balking at singing agreements like ACTA, which they correctly view as serving narrow Western economic interests at the expense of creativity and innovation in their own lands. We are not talking about the little guy who makes Indy films or writes books that are not best sellers. Rather we are talking about large sprawling Media empires who have long had ties to America's corporate and criminal underworld. Indeed, some of your major blockbusters of today are still financed with Mob (not necessarily the old Italian Mafia) money and the Mob does lethally enforce some kinds of copyright infringement when it could effect their bottom line. When a film runs into financial trouble and the Studio is stingy... the producer must get money. This has happened on at least two very large blockbusters of recent memory. I could give you some specific names and movies but I think that may not be such a good idea. Suffice it to say that for the purposes of this piece, the backdrop of who really controls the money and profits will figure in prominently into what kind of enforcement regimen comes into existence. Money, free speech as well as infrastructure vulnerability and competing business interests are going to be the drivers for the Internet. Today the US is in the drivers seat, but increasingly cooperation between the BRIC nations in IT, along with the same potential in parts of the Arab world and perhaps even the EU could change that very quickly. The US will make every effort to stop this and that will include industrial sabotage. You can find more stories that have carefully insinuated non-intentional causes placed into the story, but these were not accidents. To prevent another consortium from arising and threatening its current dominance of Cyberspace, the US will use whatever means it has at its disposal. This is why when we see or hear of sabotage herein the US, we must be careful about who is really to blame. Why? Because if we hit someone first, they will hit back, usually in kind and of course, vice-versa.

Many nations have a high stake in the future of cyberspace in its current and evolving form as well. Today, more Chinese surf the net today than Americans and that number is set to rise significantly. This site already gets a fair amount of traffic from China and it is in English, and of non-commercial and clearly non-politically correct variety. I can only imagine what it would be like if I had a Chinese section.

Drivers

What could drive increasing fragmentation of the internet or challenge/replace US leadership of cyberspace.?
Cyber attacks.
More and more devastating cyber attacks would cause some nations to rethink unfettered connectivity to the rest of the world. Indeed, one well known Computer security expert is concerned that the internet will become a War Zone. He also bemoans a growing professionalization of internet criminals who work for private parties, and governments who hack sites, undermine governments, and steal information and money.

Internal Security
Egypt was a perfect example of this. They simply cut off internet access to the people in a time of crisis. You can read how this was done and how likely it is to happen here in the US at this link, it is quite good.

Wresting Control Away From The US
This too cannot be discounted, especially in today's rapidly changing world where economic power centers are so rapidly shifting. Too much potential for economic growth rides on the internet and it is not in the interest of emerging powers to let the US control it.

Economic Warfare
The current bills (COICA/Protect IP) shows that the US is engaging in what could be termed economic warfare against what it deems copyright infringers. This includes the makers of goods that use (usually illegally) trademarks of others to sell goods for profit. The US Congress is set to impose rather draconian measures against such sites that will not allow them to have a say in court or any redress to determine if indeed they are truly violators of any laws, US or otherwise. The law, as written will allow the US to unilaterally shut down sites at the mere accusation of copyright infringement for non-US entities. This heavy handed measure is sure to invite a response, one way or another. Granted the problem Congress is attempting to address is real and cannot be taken lightly. But its heavy handedness could indeed spark an unwanted backlash in some nations where the US has little or no control.

Unintended Consequences

What is to stop a nation like Burma from offering such goods on a separate backbone of the internet that operates outside of US control with the covert help of economically significant nations. What is to stop a nation like this from offering such goods with the full support of the government, especially if they can get political cover from other economically significant countries. Once again, America's ability to redirect DNS addresses and command search engines not to list them, only effect the current internet, not to another system of routers and addresses created by other less friendly powers to the US. It not does really do much to solve the problem even as the internet is currently organized. Even if they were to remain within the current US-centric system, one can still reach the site via the use of a simple IP. Making such content illegal for US search engines to list? Ever heard of Baidu? One of the largest search engines in the world and not subservient to US law. Chinese and relations between the US and China are only going to deteriorate over the next few years. There are too many negative trends are in place (US debt, China's oil thirst, trade woes, maritime disputes, covert warfare, etc). China is quickly becoming the economic giant we do not want to anger and not vice-versa. I say this despite the internal problems she is now experiencing as before long, the US will follow suit with perhaps greater effect in its borders.

These are just some of the drivers that will cause others to look for alternatives to the current US dominated system. The drivers in the US congress right now are lobbyists who are there, not to think strategically and in the nations interest but to serve the most narrow of self-serving interests of personal profits and using the government to secure those profits by carefully juxtaposing their own profits with the worlds 'national security'. They are driving key Senators to make legal mistakes that will reduce America's competitiveness as well as eventually our current regulatory pee-eminance on the internet. But laws like this are what happens when Organized Crime, Big Corporations and Government meet and agree.


TSA, Big Brother And Humiliating The Old
Where is the President in all of this? Clearly he supports all of this as his henchmen just keep on treating ordinary Americans like Jews in the early stages of Nazi Germany. What's next, having Americans scrub floors at the Airport? Jews scrubbing sidewalks in Austria was partly the result of being on the wrong side of an election. Concern for terrorism? Go back and read what I wrote about Jobs today and know that Iran is on the list of state sponsors of terrorism. To my Jewish readers, I am not making light of the Holocaust, only reminding you that many Jews of that time were in denial about what the rising police state would mean to them, many not even believing that Hitler was really killing Jews as the war drew to a close. That is, until they found themselves PERSONALY were confronted with an oven. I need not remind you that the US today has its own global concentration camp system of 'no trial, no hearing' detention based primarily on race and religion and some have died in these camps under rather suspicious circumstances.
My fellow Americans, do not drown in the river of denial.
