Please read the following article from usatoday.com/news......July 12, 2004. It should be ringing alarm bells to anyone listening. Have U.S. general elections ever been postponed in our nations history?
Counterterrorism officials look to postpone elections
From staff and wire reports
WASHINGTON -Counterterrorism officials are looking into the possibility of postponing the November presidential election if there is a terrorist attack at election time, Newsweek reported Sunday.
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge warned last week that Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network may attack within the USA to try to disrupt the election.
The magazine cited unnamed sources who said the Department of Homeland Security asked the Justice Department for advice last week.
Newsweek said DeForest Soaries, chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, wants Ridge to ask Congress to pass legislation giving the government power to cancel or reschedule a federal election. Soaries said New York suspended primary elections on the day of the Sept. 11 attacks, but the federal government does not appear to have that authority.
The disclosure comes only a few days after U.S. authorities said they believe that al-Qaeda is planning a "large-scale" attack in the USA aimed at disrupting the presidential campaign and November elections.
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said Thursday that the party conventions were among the possible targets of such an attack, although he said there had been no particular threat to either convention. Democrats meet in Boston later this month; the Republican convention begins in late August in New York City.
Ridge said the intelligence was gathered from "credible" sources, but he acknowledged that it did not yield any specific information about a possible attack.
U.S. officials have been particularly concerned about an attack during the presidential campaign since the Madrid railway bombings in March. The bombings, which killed nearly 200 people, occurred on the eve of national elections. Spain's ruling party was ousted.

Sounds like a plausible reason to postpone the elections, right?, (the Madrid railway bombings) It always is! This is why the average citizen does not question the government's motivation and does not sense the impending changes taking place. Notice that our government leaders always focus on how our government is " protecting " us when in reality the situation is created to force changes upon us that we would normally never accept i.e. postponing elections, institution of a military form of government, appointment of members of both houses of congress without elections, etc. (I will illustrate these points below.)
Notice the following phrase in the above article: "chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, wants Ridge to ask Congress to pass legislation giving the government power to cancel or reschedule a federal election." Cancel federal elections? Is anyone listening out there? Once federal elections are cancelled we have in effect a dictatorship. It may be called something else at the time it is put into effect. Something benevolent so as not to ruffle to many feathers and keep the citizens quietly in their place, but a dictatorship none the less. As I have reiterated before, terrorism is just one more weapon in the conspirators bag of tricks to force the changes that will be used to set up the conditions for the appearance of the Antichrist and the final 10 nation confederation spoken of in Daniel 7:7, 24 and Revelation 17:12.
Now let's put 2 and 2 together and see where our government is going with this.
Let us re-examine the warning General Tommy Franks issued through NewsMax last November concerning the effects of another terrorist attack. General Tommy Franks was "Centcom commander from July 2000 until July of 2003" and directed the war in Afganistan and the invasion of Iraq before retiring from the military last year.(National Public Radio: August 4, 2004)
NEWS BRIEF: "Gen. Franks Doubts Constitution Will Survive WMD Attack", John O. Edwards, NewsMax.com, Friday, Nov. 21, 2003
Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government ... Franks said that "the worst thing that could happen" is if terrorists acquire and then use a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon that inflicts heavy casualties. If that happens, Franks said, ... the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we've seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.(Emphasis mine)
At least we have been warned. How many citizens do you think are really listening? You have to give General Franks credit on one point, though. He did not hold out the phony hope that we would get our Constitutional form of government back once the "enemies of freedom" have been vanquished!
This is all part of the psychological "conditioning process" to soften us up for the radical changes that will happen shortly. Changes in our personal freedoms that just 4 years ago we would not have accepted.
And let's see what else Uncle Sam is planning. See below.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. House Approves 9/11-Inspired Doomsday Bill", By Thomas Ferraro, Wired News, April 22, 2004
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives mulled its own possible demise on Thursday as it approved doomsday legislation to speed its replacement in case of a widespread loss of lawmakers. Passed on a 306-97 vote," (note the overwhelming 3 to 1 majority) "the measure would require special elections within 45 days if more than 100 of the 435 House members were ever wiped out. Such mass casualties would hamper the chamber's ability to conduct business ... One of four airliners hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, in an attack on the United States is suspected to possibly have had the Capitol in its cross-hairs until passengers tangled with their captors, sending the aircraft into a Pennsylvania field.
While the bill won broad support, Baird and several other members, mostly Democrats, complained it was inadequate and would leave the House for too long with too many empty seats. Many favored some sort of a constitutional amendment that would allow seats to be more quickly filled, possibly by the appointment of successors by governors or state legislatures. Baird has proposed an amendment that would allow members to name potential successors ... The House-passed bill goes now for consideration in the Senate, where a constitutional amendment approach has been proposed but not voted on.(Emphasis mine)
Again note the radical changes proposed. "A constitutional amendment has been proposed" that "would allow seats to be more quickly filled by the appointment of successors by governors or state legislatures" Do you realize that these government officials would no longer be accountable to the the citizens of the United States since they would be appointed by other government officials and not elected? Sounds like a trial run for implementation of the Constitution for the Newstates of America to me. This proposed constitutional model was prepared over a 10- year period by the Center for Democratic Studies of Santa Barbara, California, at a total cost to the United States taxpayers of over $25 million dollars. Behold a Pale Horse, M. W. Cooper (Light Technology Publishing: Flagstaff, Arizona, 86003) 1991, 251. (Note the pale horse is one of the four horseman of the apocalypse, Revelation 6:8)
Remember that the Patriot Act was rushed through congress within several months of 9-11 occurring when the government was clamoring for new police and investigative powers. Without 9-11 occurring it is improbable that this law would have been passed so quickly or passed at all. There is nothing standing in the governments way from using this act against it's own citizens when our political leaders decide that the time is right. Under the Patriot act you could be taken in dead of night (when they would expect less opposition) and never heard from again. This law permits your detention without being presented with the evidence against you, without trial, without legal representation of any kind in our nations courts, without notification of your family (even your wife) of where you are taken. If you want an example of this, look at the prisoners held at Guantanomo Bay (GITMO).
When, in the past 200 years have our government officials spoken openly of a military form of government, canceling federal elections and appointing all members of both houses of congress? Yes, if you cherish your freedom you should be concerned as General Tommy Franks has so aptly told us in his own words. Wake up America, your freedoms are about to be taken away!
I believe our political leaders are hinting at much more than they let us know. How many of these same government officials such as Tom Ridge for instance, are members of the Masonic Lodge (former President Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, former President Franklin Roosevelt)(1); The order of the Skull and Bones ("The Order") (President Bush and John Kerry)(2); members of the Lucis Trust (Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Paul Volker)(3); The Knights of Malta; Theosophical Society; The World Constitution and Parliament Association; United World Federalist Association; World Union; World Goodwill; Triangles; Arcane School; New Group of World Servers; Bilderberg Group (John Edwards, Kerry's running mate)(4); Trilateral Commission (George Will- Newsweek/ Washington Post, Katherine Graham- Associated Press)(5); The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) (Dan Rather- CBS News anchor; William F. Buckley- National Review)(6); The Club of Rome (COR); The Gorbachev Foundation (Mikhail Gorbachev)(7); The World Economic Forum (Mikhail Gorbachev, George Soros: world renowned investor and "one man source of financial aid to the Soviet Union"(8); Socialist International (British President Tony Blair- Vice President of the Socialist International)(9); The Esalen Institute etc.. Relationships with the above groups are never intentionally revealed unless you bother to research them and yet the object of each of these groups is to subvert the sovereignty of the United States and/or institute a Luciferian world government in the future. Wouldn't it be nice to know these relationships at election time?
All of these groups are actively working to destroy the sovereignty of the United States by influencing public opinion in the media; influencing and approving international treaties such as NAFTA and GATT; getting us involved in wars, then tieing the hands of the military by forcing us to compromise our military objectives for political expediency; by funding terrorism through Middle Eastern intermediaries; by establishing foundations to fund alternative lifestyles and various public information agencies.
They are following a script; (see The Plan )
a plan laid out ultimately by Satan as spoken of in the book of Daniel and Revelation that will result in a final 10 nation confederacy to be ruled by Antichrist at the end of this present age. For details including a map of these ten kingdoms, see Ten Kingdoms .
I intend to do a series of articles at some point on each of these groups to show you how they influence current events.
Now did you hear the one about the U.N. monitoring our elections?
News Brief "New World Disorder: The congressman who want U.N. observers in U.S. vote; 9 representatives appeal to Kofi Annan for intervention in presidential election" WorldNetDaily, June 7, 2004.
Washington - The United Nations has turned down a controversial request by nine members of the U.S. Congress to assign international observers to the U.S. presidential election in November.
Where are the concerned citizens who should be protesting this preposterous idea? Are there any? You can bet that if there were mass protests, private foundations or occult based groups would be funding it because the "silent majority" representing average American citizens rarely form mass protests.
The request came in the form of a letter drafted by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, and signed by eight other members of the House.
"We are deeply concerned that the right of U.S. citizens to vote in free and fair elections is again in jeopardy," the lawmakers wrote to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
Besides Johnson, the other representatives signing the letter to Annan- all Democrats (um, isn't THAT interesting!)-were Julia Carson of Indiana; Jerrold Nadler, Edolphus Towns, Joseph Crowley and Carolyn B. Maloney, all of New York; Raul Grijalva of Arizona, Corrine Brown of Florida, Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, Danny K. Davis of Illinois and Michael M. Honda of California. Johnson was an early supporter of Sen. John Edwards, campaign for the presidency. Yesterday Edwards was selected as John Kerry's Democratic Party running mate.
These congressmen to do not represent the vast majority of the population of this country; but a radical minority bent upon destroying this country's sovereignty and all the patriotic values it stands for. They show their true colors by the actions that they take. This should also tell you where John Edwards stands on this issue by his association with Eddie Bernice Johnson.
If monitoring of U.S. elections were approved "2,000 foreigners would have to be deployed from Key West to Anchorage since the rule of thumb is one observer for each 100 polling sites."
"As lawmakers, we must assure the people of America that our nation will not experience the nightmare of the 2000 presidential election," Johnson wrote. "This is the first step in making sure that history does not repeat itself," she added.(Emphasis mine)
What are the other steps? What else are they planning? How far will they go with this? Only time will tell. I believe that this was a trial balloon to see how people will react as are many of the statements coming out of Tom Ridge's office about terrorism since no major terrorist attacks have occurred in this country since 9/11 and the terror alert color code has not been changed in months.
However based on the occult plans of the groups directing world events from behind the scenes these terror attacks will eventually happen and sooner rather than later. The Sunday, July 18th, CNN NEXT program indicated that the global Islamic websites that the government monitors have started using the same language used three months before the Madrid railway bombings i.e. "The decisive battle is approaching". The website chatter is occurring with greater frequency and from more of the reliable Islamic websites. These websites state that, hospitals, parks, airports and churches will be targeted.
In Matthew 24:7 and 8 we read "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.." We are being psychologically conditioned by our news media and government officials to expect them to occur so that we will accept the changes these groups have planned for us in the near future.
And now let us switch back to this WorldNetDaily article about U.N. monitors observing U.S. elections.
Apparently there are still some concerned U.S. citizens out there.
"Let me get this straight," wrote Joe Mariani in GOPUSA.com "A group of Democrats want to bring some people from the countries like North Korea, Iran, Syria, China and Cuba - people that have never seen a democratic election in their lifetimes - to sit in judgment on our elections? What kind of voodoo politics is that? The last time a foreign body had any direct influence over the political process of this country, the situation was corrected by a war for our freedom from British rule. Are these so-called Americans so willing to surrender that hard-won right of self-determination now, and to such a shamelessly scandal-ridden group of anti-American dictatorships and terrorist sympathizers? We may as well dissolve the Union now and save ourselves the pain of watching it done for us."
Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance, a group dedicated to protecting American Sovereignty, admonished Johnson and her colleagues.
"Your appeal to the secretary general is alarming and embarrassing," he said. "As a Member of Congress sworn to uphold the Constitution and represent the people of the United States, it is disturbing, to say the least, that you would entrust the most sacred act of American democracy - our presidential election - to an international institution, which is unaccountable to the American people and mired by scandal and corruption."
Kilgannon said the request "undermines U.S. sovereignty, demoralizes American servicemen who are fighting to build democratic governments abroad and sends the message worldwide that the United States is nothing more than a Third World nation unable to police itself." (And yet this is probably part of the ultimate plan for the subversion of the United States. Steve)
Here is an update to the above article titled Renewed push for U.N. to monitor U.S. voting Congresswoman asks Powell to take request to Kofi Annan, by Joseph Farah, July 21,2004, WorldNetDaily.com
WASHINGTON – Undaunted by Kofi Annan's rejection of a plan for United Nations monitoring of the U.S. presidential elections this fall, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, is taking her case to Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Johnson has urgently asked Powell to make an official request that the U.N. provide observers for the Nov. 2 elections in the United States to "ensure free and fair elections.
It is sad that these group of Democrats are serious about this as evidenced by taking their request to Secretary of State Colin Powell. If the U.N. puts 2,000 foreigners on our soil to monitor our elections what will be there next request? Will the U.N. choose our next president?
Can you hear the approaching hoof-beats of the end of the age?
"A cry of defiance and not of fear,-- For, Borne on the night-wind of the Past, Through all our history to the last, In the hour of darkness and peril and need, The people will awaken and listen to hear the hurrying hoof-beats...." Henry W. Longfellow, 1860.
Will America awaken and rise to the challenge of preserving our individual liberties yet one more time? Will we sound the cry of defiance for loss of our religious and political "rights" or will we go about our daily business and do nothing as they are slowly stripped away one by one by our own political leaders using the influence of the media and the excuse of terrorism to "protect us".
My chief concern today is that Christians do not hear the prophetic hoof-beats of the four horseman spoken of Revelation chapter six fast approaching; warnings of God's prophetic clock drawing ever closer to the end of this age when He will return to take his own home with Him.
"Brothers we do not want you to be ignorant....like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again......For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NIV.
The rapture of those who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord of their life and Savior.
"...and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him." Hebrews 9:28 NIV
In conclusion the statements given in this article by our government officials are to condition us to accept their future plans without significant opposition; to willingly accept chains upon our freedoms until we are bound so tightly that no escape is possible; to ultimately bow down before their false God, the future Antichrist.
My goal is to reveal to you the groups actively involved in this endeavor and identify the different aspects and facets of "The Plan" they are following so that you can relate current events to the setting up of the final Luciferian controlled 10 nation confederacy at the end of the age and the "staging" of the Antichrist.
Do you know Jesus Christ, as your Lord and Savior? The prophetic time clock is almost complete as we begin to enter the period known as "the beginning of sorrows" (Matthew 24:8 KJV). I urge you to read the following passages of scripture: Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Romans 10:8-10, and verse 13, Romans 12: 1-2. Fear not, he WILL protect you, body and SOUL.
May our Lord Jesus Christ keep you and preserve you in these last days.
