WILL THE FED SAVE US? OR IS THIS CRISIS DESIGNED TO BRING IN THE AMERO? (1)

As central banks continue to splash their cash over the system, so far to little effect, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard argues things are rapidly spiralling out of their control.

Twenty billion dollars here, $20bn there, and a lush half-trillion from the European Central Bank at give-away rates for Christmas. Buckets of liquidity are being splashed over the North Atlantic banking system, so far with meagre or fleeting effects.

America's headline CPI screamed to 4.3 per cent in November. This may be a rogue figure, the tail effects of an oil, commodity, and food price spike. If so, the Fed missed its chance months ago to prepare the markets for such a case. It is now stymied.

This has eerie echoes of Japan in late-1990, when inflation rose to 4 per cent on a mini price-surge across Asia. As the Bank of Japan fretted about an inflation scare, the country's financial system tipped into the abyss.

In theory, Japan had ample ammo to fight a bust. Interest rates were 6 per cent in February 1990. In reality, the country was engulfed by the tsunami of debt deflation quicker than the bank dared to cut rates. In the end, rates fell to zero. Still it was not enough.

When a credit system implodes, it can feed on itself with lightning speed.

"The central banks are trying to dissociate financial problems from the real economy. They are pushing the world nearer and nearer to the edge of depression. We hope they will eventually be dragged kicking and screaming to do enough, but time is running out," he said.(Bernard Connolly, global strategist at Banque AIG).

Glance at the more or less healthy stock markets in New York, London, and Frankfurt, and you might never know that this debate is raging. Hopes that Middle Eastern and Asian wealth funds will plug every hole lifts spirits.

Glance at the debt markets and you hear a different tale. Not a single junk bond has been issued in Europe since August. Every attempt failed.

"The kind of upheaval observed in the international money markets over the past few months has never been witnessed in history," says Thomas Jordan, a Swiss central bank governor.(Emphasis mine)

Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, UBS, HSBC and others have stepped forward to reveal their losses. At some point, enough of the dirty linen will be on the line to let markets discern the shape of the debacle. We are not there yet.

Anyone care to withdraw?

Be very suspicious of any unofficial bank holidays!

END GAME

MARKET INTERVENTION ACCELERATING


That the U.S. economy is headed in the direction of stagflation is pretty clear from the shadowstats.com November, 2007 statistics. According to shadowstats.com, Real Consumer Price Inflation is running in excess of 11% a year and, as we commented above, the money supply figure (M3) is increasing at 15% per year, or a doubling time of about 5 years. Moreover, GDP growth is a negative number. It would appear that The Cartel-charted-course (which we describe in our June Letter) toward a hyperinflationary Recession/Depression as a catalyst for a painful transition into the apparent “End Game”, is on track.

To be sure, this course involving an explosion of the money supply (“money from helicopters” to use the phrase associated with Chairman Bernanke) and the massive and increasing use of derivatives to intervene in a wide variety of markets is fraught with danger. Deepcaster, Warren Buffet and Jim Sinclair have all pointed out the dangers. Indeed, Sinclair has aptly described the financial system as sitting on a “$20 trillion trembling mountain of derivatives…think Weimar Republic.” Unfortunately Jim Sinclair and Warren Buffett are correct.

In sum, with The Cartel’s increasing use of derivatives comes an increasing risk of a financial meltdown. We had such a harbinger of one in August with the credit market freeze up of August, 2007 but The Cartel was able to rescue its major International Bank and Wall Street clients from this one.

So far The Cartel has staved off a systemic meltdown. But, alas, it may well not always be so.

Economics 101: The Bush Version of Let's Rape America

From our excellent common sense historian, Greg Palast(1) we herewith feast on this scrutiny of Bush's doublespeak with Greg's own version of what Bush really means. This is highly relevant as our dollar plunges, soon to be replaced by the Amero and the North American Union(Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America)

On July 22, 2005, the President, beside himself with idiot glee, took personal credit for China's "revaluing" its currency, the yuan. The press applauded, unanimously, and egghead-looking TV analysts in bow ties told us that this was a great boon for U.S. manufacturing employment. Was it?

First off, most Americans haven't the least idea what "revaluing" China's money means. Let me put it in the language of economics: The revaluation of the yuan didn't mean squat. . . at least in terms of saving American manufacturing jobs. In simple terms, "revaluation" means that it takes fewer Chinese yuan to buy an American dollar. The White House peddled the line that this slight alteration of exchange rates makes our products cheaper for the Chinese and they'll buy more from us.

They didn't.

Why not? Currency Exchange Rate Economics Lesson Number One: You can't change the value of goods by changing the value of the currency on the price tag. The price inflates to compensate for the currency change. As my comrade the economist Art Laffer reminded me: "If cheap currency makes your products more competitive, all the automobiles would be made in Russia." Driven a Lada lately?

Currency Exchange Rate Economics Lesson Number Two: Don't take economic lessons from George Bush.

By definition, revaluing the yuan means devaluing the dollar. Imagine if our President had put the news differently:
My fellow Americans, today I am proud to announce that this Administration has successfully devalued the dollar. Dollars are now worth less compared to Chinese money. Your pensions are worth less, your savings have been shaved in value. Devaluation of the U.S. dollar leads to price inflation in the USA. Always. And get ready for this. We're going to have to buy own money back from China--and it will now cost us more. The U.S. Treasury will have to raise interest rates to get the Chinese to return the loot. So yes, there's an affect on manufacturing jobs. Kiss them good-bye. And may God bless America.

Class dismissed.

Almost. There's another way to get the money back besides trying to sell China more goods or by raising interest rates to borrow our money back from them. If China won't buy our manufactured goods, they can return our capital by buying our manufacturers. It is no accident that the very week China raised the value of its currency, the Chinese state oil company made a cash bid for Unocal Oil of California. Raising the value of the yuan cut the price of Unocal to the Chinese by about half a billion dollars. The Bush administration was unhappy, but not about a foreign takeover of a strategic industry. Rather, our Treasury Secretary John Snow flew to Beijing to demand the Chinese hike their currency even higher, demanding the Chinese further devalue the U.S. dollar.

Remember: There are no nations. There is no "West". Am I getting through to you Mr. Beale? There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM, and ITT, and AT&T, and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon--those are the nations of the world today. We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is college of corporations ... It is the international system of currency that determines the totality of life on this planet.(2)

The Absurdity Of It All!

This little piece by Pamela Hess AP(1), deserves some comment!

My comments are in italics

Panel Wants Tighter Radiation Security.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. government should replace more than 1,000 irradiation machines used in hospitals and research facilities because terrorists could use the radioactive materials inside to make a "dirty" bomb, a government advisory panel has concluded.

Common sense has therefore concluded that the U.S. government should replace more than 1,000 airline passenger jets built with two or more engines since passenger jets built with more than one engine contain more fuel which would result in a bigger fireball and greater sky scraper damage should terrorists use them to attack tall buildings.

"Any one of these 1,000-plus sources could shut down 25 square kilometers, anywhere in the United States, for 40-plus years," according to panel documents obtained by The Associated Press."

The machines are in relatively unprotected locations such as hospitals and research facilities all over the country, and may be a tempting source of radioactive materials for terrorists who want bombs that explode and disperse radioactive debris over a large area, rendering it uninhabitable, the board found.

The irradiators contain Cesium-137, one of the most dangerous and long-lasting radioactive materials. They are used for radiation therapy and to sterilize blood and food.
Now the punch line!

Swapping the Cesium irradiators for X-ray machines or irradiators that use other materials would cost about $200 million over five years, but it would take the most accessible source of dangerous radioactive material inside the United States "off the table" for terrorists, the panel says.
Does the panel know that they have now given this idea widespread credibility? Notice that every recommendation from intelligence and security organizations affiliated with the U.S. government will involve spending millions of dollars of your money to justify their existence. Yet has a radioactive bomb every been detonated in this country (USA)?

The recommendation is part of an as-yet-unreleased report that describes how unfriendly nations or terrorist groups could undermine the computers and satellites the U.S. military relies on and attack the United States with radiological or biological weapons or blackmail the U.S. government with a threat of a nuclear detonation, all while manipulating world opinion against the United States in the media and on the Internet.

The report comes from the Defense Science Board, a panel of retired military and CIA officials and defense industry experts who offer the Pentagon possible solutions to actual and potential national security problems. It is expected to be released late this year.

The board wants the Pentagon to create a joint military force able to locate and seize illicit nuclear materials and weapons when they are still in transit, and to safely destroy nuclear weapons captured from terrorists or defeated states.

It says U.S. intelligence has failed to determine what countries or groups are developing or trying to obtain nuclear, radiological and biological weapons and how and when they are likely to use them.
This is because U.S. intelligence is either very inept or there are no "rogue states" actually trying to do this.

"No adversary can exercise all options; but we don't know which options they can exercise," the documents state.
Therefore common sense has concluded that extreme measures must be taken!

The report recommends creating "unfettered X-treme intelligence teams" to improve the "poor intelligence community posture." Exactly what the teams would do is classified.
Hitler would be proud! This is better than the old SS. What the teams will do is root out any opposition to the coming global government. Your neighbor could be the snitch who turns you in! Notice their purpose is classified!

The board advocates diplomacy and trying to influence world opinion so the United States is less likely to be attacked or lured into a foreign war it might not win.

"We are unprepared," state the documents. "At best we will be deterred. Worse, we will enter the fray and then quit when we appreciate the cost of success. Instruments of national power other than the military, such as strategic communication, will assume greater importance."
Yes, this is true in a world government!

The U.S government should be promoting universally accepted values like human dignity, economic well-being, health care and education rather than "democracy" and "freedom," the panel states.

"What we say is often not what others may hear -concepts such as 'democracy,' 'rule of law' and 'freedom' have different meanings in different cultures and at different stages of their development," the documents state. "It is about them, not only about us."

It recommends that the State Department spend $250 million over five years to create an independent "Center for Global Engagement" to conduct opinion research and analyses on media and culture that the government can use to design projects and messages that will advance those values.
The State Department will spend $250 million over five years to analyze what propaganda methods work best to influence the public into accepting the globalization concept and a global world government.

It also recommends deploying more hospital ships for medical and humanitarian relief; releasing spy imagery to help other countries in crop management, weather forecasting, and environmental studies; and adopting policies that will help create jobs in key strategic nations such as Lebanon, Pakistan and Iraq.

British Bank Stock Tumbles 31% As Customers Begin A"Run".

Northern Rock has apologised to customers worried by its emergency loan from the Bank of England. Customers told not to panic.

The bank has closed its doors after another day which saw thousands of panicked customers queuing for hours to take out their savings.

The UK's fifth biggest mortgage lender has been hit by soaring costs in wholesale lending markets, where it borrows cash to fund its mortgage business.

Alongside the emergency funding, the Newcastle-based bank warned it could take a profits hit of nearly £150m due to the money market turmoil.

If you think the money market funds in your IRA are safe guess again. These money market funds are based on pooled 30-90 day commercial paper which has been borrowed (traded) from large banks and corporations some of which are mortgage lenders!

Things may get much worse as indicated by a mystery trader who is betting on a huge downturn in the stock market that could only be preceded by a 9/11 type of catastrophe or China dumping its vast dollar reserves in reaction to the sub-prime mortgage collapse.
A mystery trader risks losing around $1 billion dollars after placing 245,000 put options on the Dow Jones Eurostoxx 50 index, leading many analysts to speculate that a stock market crash preceded by a new 9/11 style catastrophe could take place within the next month.

The anonymous trader only stands to make money if the market crashes by a third to a half before September 21st, which is when the put options expire. A put option is a financial contract between two parties, the buyer and the writer (seller) of the option, in which the buyer stands to benefit only if the price of the asset falls.

"The sales are being referred to by market traders as "bin Laden trades" because only an event on the scale of 9-11 could make these short-sell options valuable," reports financial blogger Marc Parent. Dow Jones Financial News first reported on the story.

The trader stands to make around $2 billion from their investment should an event trigger a market crash before the third week in September.

Such a cataclysmic jolt could only happen as a result of two factors, China dumping its vast dollar reserves in reaction to the sub-prime mortgage collapse, which it has threatened to do, or a massive terror attack on the same scale or larger than 9/11.

9/11 itself was foreshadowed by unprecedented put options that were placed on United and American Airlines. Though the Securities and Exchange Commission refused to reveal who placed the options, private researchers traced the investments back to the Deutsche Bank owned Banker’s Trust, which was formerly headed by then Executive Director of the CIA, Buzzy Krongard.

Put options on Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch, two of the World Trade Center's most prominent occupants, also spiked in the days before 9/11.

News of the suspicious trades is dovetailed by the comments of Former US Treasury secretary Larry Summers yesterday, who told ABC News that the risk of a recession in the U.S. was greater that at any time since 9/11.
It may be prudent to resist trading in the market this week and invest in some gold.

The Sum of All Fears?

This summer we are likely to suffer another terror attack, a "911-2B."

The list of notables' quotables begins with the springtime warning of the vice president to NBC's Tim Russert on Meet the Press:

April 15, 2007, Dick Cheney: "The greatest threat now is 'a 9/11' occurring ... with a nuclear weapon in the middle of one of our own cities."

June 3, 2007, Dennis Milligan, Chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party: "I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001]."

July 1, 2007, ABC News: "A secret U.S. law enforcement report, prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, warns that al Qaeda is planning a terror "spectacular" this summer."

July 11, 2007, Michael Chertoff, Homeland Security chief: "I believe we are entering a period this summer of increased risk."

July 20, 2007, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury: "Whether authentic or orchestrated, an attack will activate Bush's new executive orders [NSPD-51], which create a dictatorial police state in event of national emergency."

July 24, 2007, Peter DeFazio, House Homeland Security Committee member: "I just can't believe they're going to deny a member of Congress the right of reviewing how they plan to conduct the government of the United States after a significant terrorist attack. Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right."

DeFazio's Oregon is the target of Noble Resolve," an upcoming 9/11-2B military exercise scheduled for August 20-24 that includes a nuclear attack on Portland. Pacific Northwesterners are increasingly alarmed that they may be the targets of a false flag nuclear attack, or the fallout from it. You can't blame them. After all, according to all sources, left and right, 911-2B is the only thing that can revitalize the war president and the war plan.

What is a false flag operation?

Captain Eric H. May explains it brilliantly.

False flag attack is one in which you attack your own people, then blame it on a group of people you want to attack. It's a radical stratagem for instantly creating hatred, and it's common, historically speaking, all the way from ancient to modern times. For example:

The Roman Emperor Nero burned Rome, then blamed it on emerging Christianity.
The German Fuhrer Hitler burned the Reichstag, then blamed it on communist Jewry.
The American President Bush demolished the World Trade Center, then blamed it on radical Islam.

At present, "false flag" is a highly relevant term, as Rep. DeFazio and his chief of staff Penny Dodge have learned from their constituents back home in Oregon.

The people of Portland are also becoming very concerned over this military exercise in view of the recently signed NSPD 51,and HSPD-20 by the President. These two directives allow the President to declare martial law and dictatorship with out congressional oversight. Some have compared these recent presidential directives to suspension of the Weimar Constitution of 1919 by article 48 by which Hilter demanded and obtained removal of freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom of speech.

Just recently Senator Trent Lott (32nd Degree Mason) gave a very specific warning. Listen to his frightening comments:

"Without mentioning a specific threat to the Capitol, Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott (R-Miss.) ominously advised Thursday that Congress needed to pass changes to terrorist surveillance laws before leaving for the August recess and warned that otherwise 'the disaster could be on our doorstep'."

"When asked if people should leave Washington, D.C., during the month of August, Lott responded, 'I think it would be good to leave town in August, and it would probably be good to stay out until September the 12th'." (Italics and emphasis mine)

Lott was complaining bitterly that Congress was not going to pass the dramatic increase in "terrorist surveillance laws" before the legislative body recessed for the month of August. Since the original 9/11 attack, many discerning individuals have been warning that the Bush Administration might need another major terrorist attack before it could get all the dictatorial laws out of Congress which it so fervently desires.

On Friday, August 3rd, President Bush demanded that Congress stay in session longer to give him even greater power before the August recess.

""WASHINGTON - President Bush said Friday that Congress must stay in session until it approves legislation modernizing a U.S. law governing eavesdropping on foreigners ... 'We've worked hard and in good faith with the Democrats to find a solution, but we are not going to put our national security at risk. Time is short'."

"Time is short", the President intones. He is right -- the time Americans have left to enjoy our freedoms dwindles every single day. The only question is "when will the next terror attack occur"? When that day comes, either the President, the FEMA Director, or the Homeland Security Director will command that all functions of government shut down, while the "enemies of peace are quelled".

According to Joel Skousen:
The latest terror warning to sweep through the internet comes from Israeli-American counter-terrorism expert Juval Aviv. "What they're going to do," he claims "is hit six, seven or eight cities simultaneously to show sophistication and really hit the public. This time it will not only be big cities. They're going to try to hit rural America. They want to send a message to rural America: 'You're not protected. If you figured out that if you just move out of New York and move to Montana or to Pittsburgh, you're not immune. We're going [to] get you wherever we can and it's easier there than in New York."

Aviv claims the next attack will come in the next 90 days and hit the small normal type targets I have been warning are the standard way in which normal terrorism acts. He is either predicting these events based upon an accurate knowledge of how terror should act (but hasn't been in the US, which only experiences high profile attacks) or he is privy, through Israel, to the next level of government engineered attacks that are coming." Joel Skousen's World Affairs Brief (http://www.worldaffairsbrief.com)


Atomic August


Captain May reminds us:
As I pointed out in my column last week, Next 9/11, Summer 2007?, Operation Noble Resolve, to be conducted in August, will involve extensive mobilization of Homeland Security and U.S. military forces to simulate a wide range of catastrophic terror events in Oregon. The grand finale will be the simulation of a ten kiloton atomic bomb in Portland.

But what if they decide to use a real bomb rather than simulate it?

No doubt 99 percent of the participants in Noble Resolve believe it is a mere readiness exercise, but what if one percent -- inserted by Bush cronies -- believe it is the perfect cover for setting off a real nuke? This is, after all, what happened on 9/11/01, when U.S. military commands were simulating terror airline strikes on U.S. skyscrapers -- which is exactly what happened. It's also what happened on 7/7/05, when London police were simulating terror subway strikes -- which is exactly what happened. The criminal one percent effectively hijacked those exercises while the 99 percent of honest participants were as shocked as the general public, and simply carried on with the scenario they had been practicing, which had now become "live."

When the horrific events that government exercises are supposed to be practicing against turn out to be the exact events that occur, then it is insanity to continue to put blind faith in the motives of the government. On the other hand, it is highest sanity to document, organize, and protest against a possible false flag attack, as the constituents and congressional folk of Oregon are now doing.

Friends remember this prediction from one individual who operated at the highest levels of our government before retiring; General Tommy Franks who lead the invasion of Iraq.

"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'.” ("Gen. Franks Doubts Constitution Will Survive WMD Attack", John O. Edwards, NewsMax.com, Friday, Nov. 21, 2003.)

At least we have been warned. 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.

Epilogue


And have no fellowship with the unfruitfull works of darkness , but rather reprove them. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:11, 14,15. KJV

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:12, 13. KJV

Election Reform

Ban debates. It is all just hot air!


The only purpose is to improve ratings, raise money, and get more media exposure. It is all about creating an image, a perception as the media tallies the tit for tat of each go around. By election day mass confusion of the issues reigns.

Will it be Mit Romney, Obama, Hillary, or Ron? What? You don't know Ron Paul? Where have you been. Watching CNN or Fox News perhaps? Join the internet crowd and turn off that TV. Find out what is really go'in on!

Look at the voting record of each candidate, then decide. It is the true measure of what each candidate believes!

Steve
Epilogue

"In the hands of the States to-day there is a great force that creates the movement of thought in the people, and that is the Press. That part played by the Press is keeping to our requirements supposed to be indispensable, to give voice to the complaints of the people, to express and to create discontent. But the goyim States have not known how to make use of this force; and it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade...."(1)

"What is the part played by the press today? It serves to excite and inflame those passions which are needed for our purposes or else it serves selfish ends of parties. It is often vapid, unjust, mendacious, and the majority of public have not the slightest idea what ends the press really serves."(2).

"The goyim" (cattle) "have lost the habit of thinking unless prompted by the suggestions of our specialists." (3)

"The principal object of our directorate consists in this: to debilitate the public mind by criticism; to lead it away from serious reflections calculated to arouse resistance; to distract the forces of the mind towards a sham fight of empty eloquence.(sound familiar?)

In all ages the peoples of the world have accepted words for deeds, for they are content with a show and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance."(4)

Again: Look at the voting record of each candidate, then decide. It is the true measure of what each candidate believes!

IMPEACH!

Where is the outrage? Where are the calls for resignation? Has America given up it's birthright? Land of the free and home of the brave?

Our forefathers paid dearly with their blood to gain what we willingly relinquish (by our acceptance of this pardon) to the imperial criminal cabal enthroned in Washington. For our forefathers to die was gain in order that their children and grandchildren could live free from British rule.

When shall we protest this pardoning of Lewis "Scooter" Libby by the President; this outrage of letting a convicted criminal walk free? Why is he above the law and not you or I? Will we protest next week, or next year? Shall we gather strength through irresolution and inaction? God forbid!

Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, voicing not even a wimper in protest? Will it be when the criminal cabal in Washington has disarmed every American citizen? Will it be when a foreign soldier stands at every door. Must we willingly accept this contempt for the American people and the law from the throne of government. I say emphatically NO!

When will the sleeping giant, the American citizen too long silent band together to recognize our common adversary. It is not Al-Qaeda, it is the President and the elected Illuminati members of congress who use the mechanism of the American government to destroy nations and enslave their citizens through the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act of 2006; to reshape the world to their own ends, to create the North American Union.

There is no longer room for hope; the eve of freedom is at hand. We must take action. We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which God hath placed in our power. There is a just God who presides over the destiny of nations; nations rise and nations fall at his command. The battle belongs to the Lord. With his grace and our initiative mountains can be moved. Millions of Americans, armed in the holy cause of liberty, versed in the constitution of this great land can be invincible by any force this government sends against us.

If we wish to remain free--if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which our forefathers gave their life's blood -then we must protest this insult to the American people-- we must let our elected representatives know that we will not stand for this. Use your vote at the ballot box to throw the rascals out. Post your blogs to let everyone know your outrage. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Contact your representatives. Send those emails.

The battle, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave; those willing to risk it all to preserve the freedoms, the liberties of conscience that we enjoy today.

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"--
Patrick Henry


May God bless you on this fourth of July.

The Path Of The Wicked

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The Council On Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, The Security And Prosperity Partnership Of North America, The Bilderberg Group, The Carlyle Group, Kissinger Associates, The Club Of Rome, The Council Of 33 (European Council of Princes), Lucis Trust, The World Federalist Association, The Sovereign and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry, Ordo Templi Orientis, Opus Dei, And Other Bad Actors.


But your iniquities have separated you from God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so he will not hear. Your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue mutters wicked things. They rely on empty arguments and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. Their deeds are evil deeds. Their thoughts are evil thoughts; ruin and destruction mark their ways. The way of peace they do not know; there is no justice in their paths.

They have turned them into crooked roads; no one who walks in them will know peace.

According to what they have done, so he will repay; wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes; he will repay for the islands their due.

For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along.


Oh Child of God


Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion. Do not hold back. For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness but we walk in deep shadows.

Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like men without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong we are like the dead. We look for justice, but find none; for deliverance, but it is far away.

For our offenses are mighty in your sight: divorce, abortion, euthanasia, pornography, homosexuality, injustice for the poor, wickedness in high places, banning your name from the public square, witchcraft and evil promoted at every turn, filth paraded before us in the public media. These sins of the nation testify against us.

Rebellion and treachery against the Lord, turning our backs on our God. So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance, truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

Oh Christian repent! Rise up! Drive this evil from the public square. Do not tolerate wickedness in high places for the Lord is watching, ever mindful of the sins committed by this nation. He knows our hearts. He will not tolerate wickedness forever but will come in like a flood to judge the wicked and rescue the righteous.


From the west, men will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. Do you?

Steve

TOO MANY CHILDREN -TOO MUCH CARBON DIOXIDE: SPARE THE CHILDREN OR SPOIL THE PLANET?

From The Australian News, May 7, 2007 we learn the following:

HAVING large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanor in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags, says a report to be published today by a green think tank.

The paper by the Optimum Population Trust will say that if couples had two children instead of three they could cut their family's carbon dioxide output by the equivalent of 620 return flights a year between London and New York.

John Guillebaud, co-chairman of OPT and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, said:
'The effect on the planet of having one child less is an order of magnitude greater than all these other things we might do, such as switching off lights. 'The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child'

I would think that the greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of our planet is to lock these crazies up and throw away the key! I wonder if they would consider taking away their children to lower the carbon dioxide level? This is global warming run amuck!

This fits right in with Illuminati plan for global population reduction as best described by Stanley K. Monteith, M.D. in his excellent article The Population Control Agenda
One of the most difficult concepts for Americans to accept is that there are human beings dedicated to coercive population control and genocide. Many readers will acknowledge that our government is helping to finance the Red Chinese program of forced abortion, forced sterilization, infanticide, and control of the numbers of live births. Most readers will accept the fact that our nation is helping to finance the United Nations' world-wide "family planning program," a form of population control. Most rational men and women, however, find it impossible to believe that such programs are really part of a "master plan" to kill off large segments of the world's population.

I shall have to admit that I studied the politics of AIDS (HIV disease) for over a decade before I finally came to a horrifying conclusion. The real motivation behind efforts to block utilization of standard public health measures to control further spread of the HIV epidemic was "population control." That was not an easy concept for me to acknowledge, despite the fact that I had long recognized that the twentieth century has been the bloodiest hundred-year period in all recorded human history.

It was not until I journeyed to Elberton, Georgia, stood within the dark shadows of the great Druid-like monument built there, and read the words engraved on the massive stone pillars of that structure that I finally came to accept the truth. At that point it became obvious that just as our Lord has given mankind Ten Commandments to guide our lives, so, too, those from "the dark side" have been given their instructions from the "one" they worship. The ten programs of the "guides" are inscribed in eight different languages on the four great granite pillars of the American Stonehenge. That message foretells a terrifying future for humanity, and explains why efforts to approach the AIDS epidemic from a logical point of view have been consistently thwarted.(1)

Before you scoff, and reject my suggestion as some sort of madness, check out my references, then try to disprove my conclusions. If my allegations are unfounded, you will soon recognize the deception and return to your daily activities, certain that there is no cause for concern. On the other hand, should you determine that my assessment is correct, or even partially correct, then you have a moral obligation to decide just what part you intend to play in response to the unfolding world genocide - how you will protect yourself, your loved ones, and the countless millions of helpless human beings throughout the world who have been marked for destruction.

You must never forget the warning recorded for posterity by Martin Niemoeller, the Lutheran minister who lived in Hitler's Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. His words echo down to us over succeeding decades:

"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." (2)

The Georgia Guidestones

On one of the highest hilltops in Elbert County, Georgia stands a huge granite monument. Engraved in eight different languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 Guides, or commandments. That monument is alternately referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge. Though relatively unknown to most people, it is an important link to the Occult Hierarchy that dominates the world in which we live.

The origin of that strange monument is shrouded in mystery because no one knows the true identity of the man, or men, who commissioned its construction. All that is known for certain is that in June 1979, a well-dressed, articulate stranger visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He identified himself as R. C. Christian, but it soon became apparent that was not his real name. He said that he represented a group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, but to date, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented. Several things are apparent. The messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four major fields: (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality.

In the public library in Elberton, I found a book written by the man who called himself R.C. Christian. I discovered that the monument he commissioned had been erected in recognition of Thomas Paine and the occult philosophy he espoused. Indeed, the Georgia Guidestones are used for occult ceremonies and mystic celebrations to this very day. Tragically, only one religious leader in the area had the courage to speak out against the American Stonehenge, and he has recently relocated his ministry.

THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
10.Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.

Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the extermination of nine-tenths of the world's people. The American Stonehenge's reference to establishing a world court foreshadows the current move to create an International Criminal Court and a world government. The Guidestones' emphasis on preserving nature anticipates the environmental movement of the 1990s, and the reference to "seeking harmony with the infinite" reflects the current effort to replace Judeo-Christian beliefs with a new spirituality.

Epilogue

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with Him. And the power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Revelation 6:8 KJV

"And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden alter which is before God,
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men." Revelation 9:13-15 KJV

A CALL TO ACTION

Here is the text of the long version of the "anti-hate" bill (S1145, HR2662), which Rep. John Conyers wants to introduce in place of the short version, HR 254, which is now in House Judiciary.

Commentary by Rev. Ted Pike is in italics.

What this bill does:

Creates a bias motivation justice system for America, like Canada's. Suspicion of bias motivation behind a crime will justify federal invasion of local law enforcement. Such unity of federal and local jurisdiction is the definition of a police state.

This bill will eventually enforce the ADL definition that hate equals bias against federally protected groups. Homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, etc... would receive special federal protection in violation of the 14th amendment.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

S 1145 IS

109th CONGRESS


1st Session


S. 1145

To provide Federal assistance to States and local jurisdictions to prosecute hate crimes.

This bill grants the government jurisdiction, not just in violent hate crimes, but for general "hate crimes."


IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES


May 26, 2005

Mr. KENNEDY (for himself, Mr. SPECTER, Mr. SMITH, Mr. LEAHY, Ms. COLLINS, Mr. LIEBERMAN, Ms. SNOWE, Mr. WYDEN, Mr. JEFFORDS, Mr. SCHUMER, Mr. CHAFEE, Mr. AKAKA, Mr. ENSIGN, Mr. BAYH, Mr. BIDEN, Mr. BINGAMAN, Mrs. BOXER, Ms. CANTWELL, Mrs. CLINTON, Mr. COLEMAN, Mr. CORZINE, Mr. DAYTON, Mr. DODD, Mr. DURBIN, Mrs. FEINSTEIN, Mr. HARKIN, Mr. INOUYE, Mr. JOHNSON, Mr. KERRY, Ms. LANDRIEU, Mr. LEVIN, Mrs. LINCOLN, Ms. MIKULSKI, Mrs. MURRAY, Mr. NELSON of Nebraska, Mr. NELSON of Florida, Mr. OBAMA, Mr. REED, Mr. SALAZAR, Mr. SARBANES, Ms. STABENOW, Mr. LAUTENBERG, Mr. PRYOR, and Mr. ROCKEFELLER) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

(Notice how many of these senators are presidential candidates. I would suggest that those senators voting for this bill should be voted out of office at the first available opportunity. Steve)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A BILL

To provide Federal assistance to States and local jurisdictions to prosecute hate crimes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act of 2005'.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress makes the following findings:

(1) The incidence of violence motivated by the actual or [1] perceived [2] race, color, religion, national origin, gender [women], sexual orientation [homosexuals/transvestites], or disability of the victim poses [3] a serious national problem.

[1] What does “perceived” mean? This section asserts that if you expressed bias against women while assaulting or attempting to rape a transvestite (a male) you would still be punished for a hate crime against women. Your error in perception does not absolve you from punishment for the great evil of “bias motivation.” Thus, thought is equally punished with action. Federal law requires triple penalties (Sec. 280003 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994).

[2] In Canada, after 35 years of hate law protection of homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, Indians, etc., whites and Christians to my knowledge have never been afforded the same defense.

[3] When was the last time you heard of a truly “violent” hate crime in America -- the murder of Matthew Shepard six years ago? Of course, violent hate crimes do occur, yet the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, originator of this legislation, creates the illusion of an “epidemic of hate” crying out for drastic federal takeover of local law enforcement. S.1145 is thus a "solution" in search of a "serious national problem" which is largely imaginary.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


(2) Such violence disrupts the tranquility and safety of communities and is deeply divisive.
Yes, during post-Civil War lynchings, but such terror is not going on today.

(3) State and local authorities are now and will continue to be responsible for prosecuting the overwhelming majority of violent crimes in the United States, including violent crimes motivated by bias. These authorities can carry out their responsibilities more effectively with greater Federal assistance.
This confirms that government “assistance” means jurisdiction over at least a “minority” of violent hate crimes prosecutions.

(4) Existing Federal law is inadequate to address this problem.
Federal law was never meant to adjudicate this “problem.”

(5) The prominent characteristic of a violent crime motivated by bias is that it devastates not just the actual victim and the family and friends of the victim, but frequently savages the community sharing the traits that caused the victim to be selected.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The federal government is allowed to intervene in states’ law enforcement if crimes involve interstate commerce. ADL below wants to provide as many pretexts as possible for such federal intervention.

ADL creates the fantasy that “violent hate crimes” are substantially affecting interstate commerce and the economy. This gives the government a green light to take over jurisdiction of bias crimes within states, intervening at will.

(6) Such violence substantially affects interstate commerce in many ways, including--
(A) by impeding the movement of members of targeted groups and forcing such members to move across State lines to escape the incidence or risk of such violence; and

(B) by preventing members of targeted groups from purchasing goods and services, obtaining or sustaining employment, or participating in other commercial activity.
(7) Perpetrators cross State lines to commit such violence.

(8) Channels, facilities, and instrumentalities of interstate commerce are used to facilitate the commission of such violence.

(9) Such violence is committed using articles that have traveled in interstate commerce.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below ADL argues that “slavery” still exists in the states in the form of bias-motivated violence. Hence, government is entitled to invade states again, as in the Civil War!

(10) For generations, the institutions of slavery and involuntary servitude were defined by the race, color, and ancestry of those held in bondage. Slavery and involuntary servitude were enforced, both prior to and after the adoption of the 13th amendment to the Constitution of the United States, through widespread public and private violence directed at persons because of their race, color, or ancestry, or perceived race, color, or ancestry. Accordingly, eliminating racially motivated violence is an important means of eliminating, to the extent possible, the badges, incidents, and relics of slavery and involuntary servitude.

(11) Both at the time when the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution of the United States were adopted, and continuing to date, members of certain religious and national origin groups were and are perceived to be distinct `races'. Thus, in order to eliminate, to the extent possible, the badges, incidents, and relics of slavery, it is necessary to prohibit assaults on the basis of real or perceived religions or national origins, [Under S.1145, the federal government prohibits and punishes assaults in states motivated by perceptions (thoughts).] at least to the extent such religions or national origins were regarded as races at the time of the adoption of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution of the United States.

(12) Federal jurisdiction over certain violent crimes motivated by bias enables Federal, State, and local authorities to work together as partners in the investigation and prosecution of such crimes.[This is a definitive statement affirming the purpose of S.1145: Federal jurisdiction over states.]


(13) The problem of crimes motivated by bias is sufficiently serious, widespread, and interstate in nature as to warrant Federal assistance to States and local jurisdictions. [Nonsense! Even if we allow the bogus ADL/police figure of about 7,500 “hate crimes” every year, that amounts to only 1/20 of one percent of actual crimes committed annually in the U.S.. Such is hardly a pretext for takeover of states’ rights by creation of a federal anti-hate bureaucracy.]

SEC. 3. DEFINITION OF HATE CRIME.
In this Act, the term `hate crime' has the same meaning as in section 280003(a) of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (28 U.S.C. 994 note).

Apart from the word “perceived,” this is a reasonable definition. Yet ADL’s working definition, enforced against the “Philly 11” Christians on October 10, 2004 is that “hate” equals bias against federally protected groups, especially homosexuals and Jews. If that bias motivates a crime, small or great, it becomes a “hate crime” deserving of triple penalties. Such will be the practical federal criteria for a hate crime if S.1145 becomes law.

SEC. 4. SUPPORT FOR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS AND PROSECUTIONS BY STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
(a) Assistance Other Than Financial Assistance-

(1) IN GENERAL- At the request of a law enforcement official of a State or Indian tribe, the Attorney General may provide technical, forensic, prosecutorial, or any other form of assistance in the criminal investigation or prosecution of [1] any crime that--

This empowers the federal government to invade states’ jurisdiction at the request of a state law official or an Indian tribe. The government has no constitutional right to accede to such a request.

(A) constitutes a crime of violence (as defined in section 16 of title 18, United States Code); [The government may prosecute any [1] assault (not just a hate crime) in states! Unprecedented.]

(B) constitutes a felony under the laws of the State or Indian tribe; and [The government may prosecute any [1] felony (not just hate crimes) in states! Unprecedented.]

(C) is motivated by prejudice based on the race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability of the victim, or is a violation of the hate crime laws of the State or Indian tribe. [The government may prosecute any [1] bias crime (not just a violent bias crime) in states! Unprecedented.]

(2) PRIORITY- In providing assistance under paragraph (1), the Attorney General shall give priority to crimes committed by offenders who have committed crimes in more than 1 State and to rural jurisdictions that have difficulty covering the extraordinary expenses relating to the investigation or prosecution of the crime. [This affirms the pervasive role of federal jurisdiction to prosecute assaults, felonies, and bias crimes in every corner of every state.]

(b) Grants-

(1) IN GENERAL- The Attorney General may award grants to assist State, local, and Indian law enforcement officials with the extraordinary expenses associated with the investigation and prosecution of hate crimes.

S.1145 wants to make states financially indebted to the government and its hate crimes agenda.

(2) OFFICE OF JUSTICE PROGRAMS- In implementing the grant program, the Office of Justice Programs shall work closely with the funded jurisdictions to ensure that the concerns and needs of all affected parties, including community groups and schools, colleges, and universities, are addressed through the local infrastructure developed under the grants.

(3) APPLICATION-

(A) IN GENERAL- Each State that desires a grant under this subsection shall submit an application to the Attorney General at such time, in such manner, and accompanied by or containing such information as the Attorney General shall reasonably require.

(B) DATE FOR SUBMISSION- Applications submitted pursuant to sub paragraph (A) shall be submitted during the 60-day period beginning on a date that the Attorney General shall prescribe.

(C) REQUIREMENTS- A State or political subdivision of a State or tribal official applying for assistance under this subsection shall--

(i) describe the extraordinary purposes for which the grant is needed;
(ii) certify that the State, political subdivision, or Indian tribe lacks the resources necessary to investigate or prosecute the hate crime;

(iii) demonstrate that, in developing a plan to implement the grant, the State, political subdivision, or tribal official has consulted and coordinated with nonprofit, nongovernmental victim services programs that have experience in providing services to victims of hate crimes; and [ADL/B’nai B’rith]

(iv) certify that any Federal funds received under this subsection will be used to supplement, not supplant, non-Federal funds that would otherwise be available for activities funded under this subsection.

(4) DEADLINE- An application for a grant under this subsection shall be approved or disapproved by the Attorney General not later than 30 business days after the date on which the Attorney General receives the application.

(5) GRANT AMOUNT- A grant under this subsection shall not exceed $100,000 for any single jurisdiction within a 1 year period.

(6) REPORT- Not later than December 31, 2006, the Attorney General shall submit to Congress a report describing the applications submitted for grants under this subsection, the award of such grants, and the purposes for which the grant amounts were expended.

(7) AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS- There is authorized to be appropriated to carry out this subsection $5,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2006 and 2007. [$5,000,000 annually for starters, to facilitate ADL’s federal “anti-hate” jurisdiction in states.]

SEC. 5. GRANT PROGRAM.
(a) Authority to Make Grants- The Office of Justice Programs of the Department of Justice shall award grants, in accordance with such regulations as the Attorney General may prescribe, to State and local programs designed to combat hate crimes committed by juveniles, including programs to train local law enforcement officers in identifying, investigating, prosecuting, and preventing hate crimes.

ADL has been defining "hate" and training Justice Department, FBI and local police since 1990. It will continue to do so if S.1145 is passed.

(b) Authorization of Appropriations- There are authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be necessary to carry out this section.

SEC. 6. AUTHORIZATION FOR ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL TO ASSIST STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT.

There are authorized to be appropriated to the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Justice, including the Community Relations Service, for fiscal years 2006, 2007, and 2008 such sums as are necessary to increase the number of personnel to prevent and respond to alleged violations of section 249 of title 18, United States Code, as added by section 7.

Open-ended funding for the creation of a vast “Big Brother” hate crimes bureaucracy like Canada’s.

SEC. 7. PROHIBITION OF CERTAIN HATE CRIME ACTS.
(a) In General- Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

Sec. 249. Hate crime acts

(a) In General-

(1) OFFENSES INVOLVING ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN- Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person--

(A) shall be imprisoned not more than 10 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both; and

(B) shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life, fined in accordance with this title, or both, if--

(i) death results from the offense; or
(ii) the offense includes kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, [1] aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill.

(2) OFFENSES INVOLVING ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED RELIGION, NATIONAL ORIGIN, GENDER, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, OR DISABILITY-
[2] (A) IN GENERAL- Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, in any circumstance described in sub paragraph (B), willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability of any person--

(i) shall be imprisoned not more than 10 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both; and

[3] (ii) shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life, fined in accordance with this title, or both, if--

(I) death results from the offense; or

(II) the offense includes kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or [4] an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill.

[1, 2, 3, 4] Attempting or succeeding in the rape of a woman, transvestite, or homosexual, involving “bias” language against the victim, can result in imprisonment “for any term of years or for life”!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Under S.1145 federal government has authority to prosecute and imprison those who, out of bias, assault or attempt to assault women, transvestites, or homosexuals. If involvement with interstate commerce can in any way be discovered – or if a violent bias crime interferes with the victim’s own economic activity – then the government can prosecute. This is a virtual green light for federal jurisdiction!
(B) CIRCUMSTANCES DESCRIBED- For purposes of subparagraph (A), the circumstances described in this subparagraph are that
(i) the conduct described in subparagraph (A) occurs during the course of, or as the result of, the travel of the defendant or the victim--
(I) across a State line or national border; or

(II) using a channel, facility, or instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce;

(ii) the defendant uses a channel, facility, or instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce in connection with the conduct described in subparagraph (A);

(iii) in connection with the conduct described in subparagraph (A), the defendant employs a firearm, explosive or incendiary device, or other weapon that has traveled in interstate or foreign commerce; or

(iv) the conduct described in subparagraph (A)--

[1] (I) interferes with commercial or other economic activity in which the victim is engaged at the time of the conduct; or
[1] Any victim of a bias crime can easily claim that they were commercially/economically affected by it. Result: invitation for federal jurisdiction.

(II) otherwise affects interstate or foreign commerce.

[2] (b) Certification Requirement- No prosecution of any offense described in this subsection may be undertaken by the United States, except under the certification in writing of the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General, the Associate Attorney General, or any Assistant Attorney General specially designated by the Attorney General that--

[2] ADL inserted the above to allay congressional fears that hate crimes enforcement contains no checks and balances. Actually ADL dominates the U.S. Justice Department, having been granted authority, under ADL's Hate Crimes Statistics Act of 1990, to teach the U.S. Justice Department, FBI and local police its hate crimes dogma.
The Attorney General or his underlings may initiate federal investigation and prosecution in a state if:

[1] There exists an alleged crime morivated by bias.
(1) he or she has reasonable cause to believe that the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability of any person was a motivating factor underlying the alleged conduct of the defendant; and

(2) he or his designee or she or her designee has consulted with State or local law enforcement officials regarding the prosecution and determined that--

[2] (A) the State does not have jurisdiction or does not intend to exercise jurisdiction;

[3] (B) the State has requested that the Federal Government assume jurisdiction;

[4] (C) the State does not object to the Federal Government assuming jurisdiction; or

[5] (D) the verdict or sentence obtained pursuant to State charges left demonstratively unvindicated the Federal interest in eradicating bias-motivated violence.

The above (D) means that if the government does not like the outcome of a state hate crimes trial it may intervene, possibly re-trying it. “The federal interest in eradicating bias-motivated violence” must be “vindicated,” the federal way.

Since when can states be without jurisdiction to prosecute violent crimes, or “not intend to exercise jurisdiction,” or request “that the federal government exercise jurisdiction,” or “not object to the federal government” assuming jurisdiction? Jurisdiction over violent crimes by the states is mandated by the Constitution. It is the sovereign right and duty of the states.

What this bill is covertly referring to is the possibility that the states might not want to cooperate with an alien new “thought crimes” legal system, designed to probe and punish “bias motivation” and “eradicate” hate crimes at their most formative level – in our minds.

In such case, Sec.(1)(2)(A, B, C, D) make it clear that the government will not tolerate refusal to cooperate. It will invade the state which is reluctant, upholding “the federal interest in eradicating bias-motivated violence.” Clearly, all states will be required, not only to pass federally approved anti-hate laws, but enforce them to the government's satisfaction. Alternative: the government will invade and do the job itself.

(c) Definitions- In this section--
(1) the term `explosive or incendiary device' has the meaning given the term in section 232 of this title; and

(2) the term `firearm' has the meaning given the term in section 921(a) of this title.'.

(b) Technical and Conforming Amendment- The analysis for chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

249. 'Hate crime acts'.

SEC. 8. DUTIES OF FEDERAL SENTENCING COMMISSION.
(a) Amendment of Federal Sentencing Guidelines- Pursuant to the authority provided under section 994 of title 28, United States Code, the United States Sentencing Commission shall study the issue of adult recruitment of juveniles to commit hate crimes and shall, if appropriate, amend the Federal sentencing guidelines to provide sentencing enhancements (in addition to the sentencing enhancement provided for the use of a minor during the commission of an offense) for adult defendants who recruit juveniles to assist in the commission of hate crimes.

(b) Consistency With Other Guidelines- In carrying out this section, the United States Sentencing Commission shall--


(1) ensure that there is reasonable consistency with other Federal sentencing guidelines; and

(2) avoid duplicative punishments for substantially the same offense.

SEC. 9. STATISTICS.

Subsection (b)(1) of the first section of the Hate Crimes Statistics Act (28 U.S.C. 534 note) is amended by inserting `gender,' after `race,'.


SEC. 10. SEVERABILITY.

If any provision of this Act, an amendment made by this Act, or the application of such provision or amendment to any person or circumstance is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of this Act, the amendments made by this Act, and the application of the provisions of such to any person or circumstance shall not be affected thereby.

(In other words if parts of this act, amendments to this act are challenged in court and are found to be unconstitutional, and the application of it found to be unconstitutional it does not render the rest of the act unconstitutional! Steve)

IRANIAN SNEAK ATTACK: OPERATION BITE

WASHINGTON DC -- The long awaited US military attack on Iran is now on track for the first week of April, specifically for 4 AM on April 6, the Good Friday opening of Easter weekend, writes the well-known Russian journalist Andrei Uglanov in the Moscow weekly "Argumenty Nedeli." Uglanov cites Russian military experts close to the Russian General Staff for his account.

The attack is slated to last for twelve hours, according to Uglanov, lasting from 4 AM until 4 PM local time. Friday is a holiday in Iran. In the course of the attack, code named Operation Bite, about 20 targets are marked for bombing; the list includes uranium enrichment facilities, research centers, and laboratories.

The first reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, where Russian engineers are working, is supposed to be spared from destruction. The US attack plan reportedly calls for the Iranian air defense system to be degraded, for numerous Iranian warships to be sunk in the Persian Gulf, and the for the most important headquarters of the Iranian armed forces to be wiped out.

The attacks will be mounted from a number of bases, including the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. Diego Garcia is currently home to B-52 bombers equipped with standoff missiles. Also participating in the air strikes will be US naval aviation from aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, as well as from those of the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Additional cruise missiles will be fired from submarines in the Indian Ocean and off the coast of the Arabian peninsula. The goal is allegedly to set back Iran's nuclear program by several years, writes Uglanov, whose article was re-issued by RIA-Novosti in various languages, but apparently not English, several days ago. The story is the top item on numerous Italian and German blogs, but so far appears to have been ignored by US websites.

Observers comment that this dispatch represents a high-level orchestrated leak from the Kremlin, in effect a war warning, which draws on the formidable resources of the Russian intelligence services, and which deserves to be taken with the utmost seriousness by pro-peace forces around the world.

Per a well known geopolitical commentator on the Jeff Rense program (3-27-07) the Russians and Red Chinese are well aware of the neocon, Zionist plan for the conquest and reorganization of the entire Middle East. This involves dividing up present day, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, and Afghanistan. Saudi Arabia will be downsized. A new Kurdistan will be born formed out of part of present day Turkey, western Syria, and Iraq. Iraq will be divided into 3 new countries with Kurd, Sunni, and Shia populations.

Ultimately the group driving the neocon, Zionist movement are the Rothschild affiliated central banks and associated multinational corporations which provide funding for armaments etc, which seeks greater control of the worlds natural resources (oil, etc.) and whose end game is the creation of a world government whose international financial structure they wish to control.

According to this commentator the only way Russia or China could thwart this effort by the Rothschild international financial power structure would be to set off nuclear weapons (probably suitcase nukes vs ICBMs) in the European Union and/or the United States, the Rothschild homeland.

This is the only event which would give them pause in their centuries old plan for control of the world. Even this event should it happen would play right into their hands however. Limited nuclear destruction would provide the justification for turning over all nuclear weapons to a central world authority to prevent such destruction in the future. Russia and China would be very reluctant to do this for obvious reasons.

Therefore I do not see Russia or China actively opposing Bush militarily unless it directly involved detonation of weapons on their soil.

Majesty, Power, Honor And Glory Are His: Be Strong In The Lord For HE Is Our Refuge

The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth. Yes Lord, walking in the way of your judgements, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.

My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.
When your judgements come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the Lord.

O Lord, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.

Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us. O Lord, our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor. Isaiah 26:7-13.



The Lord says:

"These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men. Therefore once more will I astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish."

Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, "Who sees us? Who will know?"
You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay!
Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, "He did not make me"? Can the pot say of the potter, "He knows nothing"? Isaiah 29:13-16.


He who walks righteously and speaks what is right, who rejects gain from extortion and keeps his hand from accepting bribes, who stops his ears against plots of murder and shuts his eyes against contemplating evil-- this is the man who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. His bread will be supplied, and water will not fail him. Isaiah 33:15,16.

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.
Isaiah 26:3,4.


O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.
Isaiah 25:1.

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
Who has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as a counselor?

Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who is it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?
Isaiah 40:12-14.

To whom, then, will you compare God?
What image will you compare him to?
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, then he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.

"To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One.
Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:18-26.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. Psalm 19:1-4.


Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28-31.

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24.


I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Revelation 3:11.

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. I Thessalonians 5:5.



EPILOGUE

Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then I urge you without delay 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, John 3:16.

The apostle Paul tells us in I Corinthians
By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise you have believed in vain.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures , that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than 500 of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep (died). Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 1 Corinthians 15:2-9.

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man (Adam who sinned), the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man (Jesus Christ).

For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority, and power. For he must reign until he "has put all his enemies under his feet." I Corinthians 15:20-27.

But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and the star differs from star in splendor.

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being"; (the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7) the last Adam, a lifegiving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man (Adam) was of the dust of the earth, the second man (Christ) from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are we of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.

I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but will all be changed-- in a flash, the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will all be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."
"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?"
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
I Corinthians 15:35-58.


If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and have not yet read the passages above then I urge you at this time to give your heart to Him and he will be your refuge; your source of strength, your rock of Gibraltar: Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Romans 10: 8-10, and verse 13, Romans 12: 1-2, John 3:16.

One day every tongue will confess you are God, One day every knee will bough.
Still the greatest treasure remains for these who gladly choose you now.

Let the glory of the Lord rise among us. Let the praises of the King rise above us. Let it rise!

I see the Lord on the throne exalted and the whole earth is filled with his glory.
Let it shine! Let it shine!

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty!


"Behold I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Revelation 22:12-13.

"The grass withers and the flowers fall but the word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8.

Oh God, you are my God, and I will forever praise you.

Steve

If you have made the decision to let go and permit the Lord of the Universe, your creator guide your life, then I rejoice with you. Just pray this simple prayer. Lord, Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and deserve your eternal wrath and punishment. I accept your free gift of forgiveness, grace and mercy. I acknowledge you as my Lord and Savior and will endeavor by your grace to follow your paths and walk in your ways for the rest of my life. Amen.

If you have made that decision and wish to contact me, I can be reached at ssbs2100@yahoo.com

Building The New North Amerikan Union

The beast rising!


"The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalization and unification of the entire world"(1). Impossible you say! (who ever dreamed the Berlin Wall would fall in our lifetime?) Please read on.

The Clubs findings and recommendations are published in highly confidential reports to its members. On September 17, 1973 a confidential report was published by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, Directors to club members titled "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System; Report on the Progress in the Strategy for Survival Project for the Club of Rome".(2)

"Referring to the Mesarovic-Pestel study, Aurelio Peccei, the Club's founder, states: Their world model, based on new developments of the multilevel hierarchical systems theory, divides the world into ten
interdependent and mutually interacting regions of political, economic or environmental coherence......."(3)

"Former United Nations Assistant-Secretary General, Robert Muller, expressed the following to a group of educators and students during the 1997 Global Citizenship 2000 youth congress:

'Let us create regional continental units...... the European Union, which I've been pushing too-- and this is how you got the trade agreement between the US and Canada'(NAFTA). "And then we'll take the five continents, if they're united, will create a World Union."(4)

"Professor Phillip Born, writing on this issue more than a decade ago, warned of regionalism within the larger international context:

'The European Community will be transformed into an all-European Union. So, too, the America's will be transformed into an integrated region of the new global order...."(Italics mine) What is new is the drive and determination to develop common markets for political (italics mine) economic integration. Correspondingly, there is the determination to institutionalize (italics mine) interdependence: a new global order through regional, bilateral and multilateral regulations... and through joint parliamentary bodies.'" (Italics in original unless otherwise noted).(5)

The idea is to meld the world together so that sovereignty of individual nation- states is gradually eroded through treaties (multilateral regulations) and economic and political interdependence until the world economy and government are in the hands of a select group of people driving and controlling the process.

The Occult Connection


Who is controlling the process?

We get a clue from a description written in 1957 by Alice Bailey, leader of the House of Theosophy who wrote that the world must first be reorganized (italics mine) into "Spheres of Influence" before it could be organized into a global government. The Club of Rome description of 10 kingdoms then is merely a modern outgrowth of the same plan and group described in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy.(6)


Epilogue
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. Revelation 13: 12,13.

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Revelation 12: 12.

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 1 Peter 4: 7

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. I Peter 4: 10,11.
