-by Andrew Strom.

Despite the thousands in our megachurches today, soaking up
the warm entertainment offered to them every week, I want to put
it to you that we have lost Christianity. Despite the Christian books
now found in every Walmart, and the "crossover" of Christian
artists into the mainstream, and our Christian mega-stores and
CD's and DVD's and Study-Bibles, I want to put it to you that we
have lost Christianity.

Despite our lavish Cathedrals in the suburbs ('Charismatic or
not) with their pastel hues and comfortable pews, their projector
screens and $30,000 sound systems, I want to put it to you that
we have utterly lost Christianity.

We left it behind somewhere when we shifted our churches from
the inner city into the "comfortable" suburbs. We left it behind when
we stopped welcoming the bums off the street into our meetings
and started welcoming only the "respectable" people. We left it
behind when we stopped preaching "take up your cross" and
turned the gospel into a success formula - 'Seven Steps to your
Best Life Now.'

Somewhere in our comfortable suburban streetscape with its
manicured lawns we lost the real thing. Somehow in our concern
for "property values" and a better 'dental plan' we left it behind.
But that is not the worst part of it. The worst part is that we don't
know how to get it back again. Or perhaps we don't really WANT
to get it back again. The cost simply doesn't bear thinking about,
does it? And so, as we drive around in our nice shiny cars with
our groovy plastic toys, and attend "church" as we know it twice a
week for 2 hours;- As we live a life that is about as unlike Jesus
as you can get, a life of comfort and coddling undreamt of by
billions around the world;- a lifestyle in the top 10% of the earth
today (-in debt up to our eyeballs all the while) - the fact is that
we don't really CARE that we have lost original Christianity, do
we? We are too busy, man. Don't bother us with that kind of talk.

It will all be OK, the preacher tells us. We will all make it to
heaven in the end. We are all "decent" people here. We have
"prayed the little prayer". We have 'given our heart to the Lord'.

Oh yes. We will all make it, won't we? We are all good suburban
church-going folks here.

But what is this? What is that thundering voice I hear? "DEPART
FROM ME." 'But LORD... But LORD....'

"I said - 'DEPART FROM ME'. Don't call me Lord. You never truly
lived like I was your Lord and you know it. For I was hungry and
you gave me no food; I was thirsty and you gave me no drink; I
was a stranger and you did not take me in; naked, and you did
not clothe me; sick and in prison, and you did not visit me...."

What is the essence of true Christianity that we have lost, my
friends? It is simply described by James as follows- "Pure
religion and undefiled is this: To visit the fatherless and widows
in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."
(Ja 1:27). Amen!

Send feedback to-

God bless you all.

Terror threats in California are revealed

Terror threats in California are revealed
Files shown to reporters also seem to back up agency's statements it didn't monitor political events.

By Aaron C. Davis
The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO -- Homeland security files opened for review Thursday showed California officials have grappled with bomb threats, suspicious passengers on airplanes, security breaches at oil refineries and dozens of other incidents in recent months.

The daily briefings came under fire last week for including lists of political protests.

The documents reviewed Thursday painted a picture of both vague and specific threats that California police officers and intelligence agencies have contended with since February, when the state hired a consultant to begin collecting the information.

The briefings were opened to reporters in response to a Los Angeles Times story last week but appeared to confirm homeland security officials' contention that the agency does not actively monitor political groups. Reporters viewed the daily briefings in two-hour increments but were not allowed to copy or photograph them.

"Homeland security has never monitored a political rally," said Chris Bertelli, deputy director of California's Office of Homeland Security. "That's not what we do. We don't have investigators; we have analysts."

The reports showed that foreign nationals have at times been refused entry almost daily at Los Angeles International Airport for unspecified reasons. Residents of Jordan, Libya, Morocco, El Salvador, China and Costa Rica were among those turned away.

The state also logged at least four domestic flights since February in which crew members or federal air marshals reported suspicious passengers.

The briefings also included references to an undefined air space violation, confiscated counterfeit visas and 7,000 pounds of stolen fertilizer, which can be used as a bomb-making material, in Contra Costa County.

The briefings include other troubling details:

There was a bomb threat to the Bay Bridge in March, and one to a Greyhound bus in Bakersfield in April.

Agencies have recorded multiple reports of individuals taking photographs of a nuclear facility in San Clemente and of an oil refinery in the San Francisco Bay Area town of Rodeo.

Security guards also found a hole cut in a fence at an oil refinery in Martinez.

In perhaps the most intriguing entry, one of the daily security briefings in April cited a redacted FBI report titled "Hizballah busted in Mexican smuggling operation."

Homeland security officials and an FBI spokeswoman declined to comment on the reference to the Lebanon-based terrorist group and said they could not confirm if members of the group were apprehended on the Mexican border.

"Obviously we are made aware of a variety of threats and, along with our law enforcement partners, we work to share that information and analyze those threats so we can inform whoever needs to know, including the public," Bertelli said.

"What I would like people to understand from this is that the process is working. Threats in California are quickly analyzed and processed."

Randall Larsen, director of the Institute for Homeland Security in Washington, said the public should not be surprised by the volume of threats the state has received.

"I support the state shining a little sunshine on this process," he said. "But you have to remember this is raw data, and in the intelligence world people care about rumor and innuendo, which some of this surely is."

The daily briefings were compiled by SRA International, which has a $4 million contract with the state to provide counterterrorism analysis.

The contract could be extended past 2006, for a total cost of $16 million.

The company's analysis of each reported incident and its comments on news clippings included in each day's briefing were redacted.

Two reports included lists of political protests -- one in March marking the anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq and the other in April, which coincided with immigration hearings on Capitol Hill.

They contained information mostly gleaned from newspaper clippings and appeared to be isolated incidents.

Bertelli said that while it could be helpful for law enforcement to be aware of such large groups for security reasons, the Office of Homeland Security ordered SRA International to stop including references to political rallies after the April report to prevent the appearance of wrongdoing.

FBI Disrupts New York City Tunnel Plot

FBI Disrupts New York City Tunnel Plot

Jul 7, 10:06 AM (ET)


(AP) Traffic streams past the New York entrance of the Holland Tunnel Friday, July 7, 2006 in New York. ...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Authorities have disrupted planning by foreign terrorists for an attack on New York City tunnels, two law enforcement officials said Friday.

FBI agents monitoring Internet chat rooms used by extremists learned in recent months of the plot to strike a blow at the city's economy by destroying vital transportation networks, one official said.

Lebanese authorities, acting on a U.S. request, have arrested one of the alleged plotters, identified as Amir Andalousli, the other official said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still under way.

A senior Lebanese security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the suspect was arrested a month ago. He said his real name is as Assem Hammoud, and that the native of Beirut admitted to the plot.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said, "This is one instance where intelligence was on top of its game and discovered the plot when it was just in the talking phase."

The planning for the tunnel attacks was first reported by the New York Daily News in its Friday editions, the first anniversary of the attacks on the London transportation system that killed 52 people.

The planning was not far along, one U.S. official said, but authorities "take aspirations of that sort seriously."

"At this time we have no indication of any imminent threat to the New York transportation system, or anywhere else in the U.S.," Richard Kolko, Washington-based FBI special agent, said in a statement to Associated Press Radio.

Last month, authorities announced the arrests of seven men in Miami and Atlanta in the early stages of a plot to blow up the Sears Tower and other buildings in the United States. That plan was described by deputy FBI director John Pistole at the time as aspirational, rather than operational.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said that federal law enforcement and New York police have been monitoring a plot to attack New York's mass transit system for at least eight months.

"There was nothing imminent, but it was being monitored for long period of time," said King, who said he has received regular intelligence briefings on the alleged plot as chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

King said he had been unable to publicly disclose the plot because to do so would risk the investigation.

"This is ongoing, that's why I've said nothing about it until now," King said. "It would have been better if this had not been disclosed."

The Daily News reported that the plotters wanted to blow up the Holland Tunnel, the southernmost link between Manhattan and New Jersey, in the hopes of flooding New York's financial district. The desired effect would be akin to the flooding that ravaged New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the newspaper said.

A government official with knowledge of the investigation said while the alleged plot did focus on New York's transportation system, it did not target the Holland Tunnel. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing, would give no further details about the intended targets.

It's unlikely that any plan to flood the financial district would work because it is above the level of the Hudson River.

The "War to End All Wars" concluded with the 1919 signing of the Treaty of Versailles. One of its provisions was the establishment of an international "League of Nations" that was created to provide international oversight to ensure the First World War really would be the war to end all wars.

The League was set up by the victorious Allied powers under the terms of a document known as "The Covenant." It outlined the League's mission: "To promote international cooperation and to achieve international peace and security."

The League was the brainchild of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, who won the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize for his work in setting it up. But the U.S. was never a member. The Senate refused to ratify membership, correctly concluding that membership would subordinate U.S. sovereignty to the League.

In 1931, Imperial Japan invaded Manchuria, set up a puppet republic called Manchukuo, and, when the League of Nations objected, Tokyo resigned from the League. The League of Nations blustered and fumed and sent many letters of protest, which Japan ignored until the League tired of sending them.

Four years later, Benito Mussolini, noting the League's ineffective response to Japanese aggression, invaded Ethiopia. The League condemned Italy, sent many letters of protest and threatened sanctions. In 1936, Mussolini's forces occupied Addis Ababa and Ethiopia became part of Italy.

Hitler watched this response carefully and took notes. This encouraged Hitler to further test the League's resolve in 1938. He threatened to invade Czechoslovakia unless Britain and France agreed to German occupation of the Sudetenland. Had the West and the League of Nations truly stood strong against this outrageous demand, Hitler probably would not have gone on to start World War II.

Emboldened by his success at facing down the entire free world, Hitler demanded that he be given Czechoslovakia in exchange for a promise to British Foreign Minister Chamberlain that there would be not further demands and there would be peace. Chamberlain, representing the "toothless" League of Nations, gave Hitler Czechoslovakia without even consulting the Czechs.

This capitulation by the League virtually assured Hitler's next move. When Hitler's storm troopers marched across the Rhine to claim the Ruhr as German territory, the League did not even bother to protest. This set the stage for the second "war to end all wars" between the Allied Forces and the Axis Powers of Japan, Italy and Germany. Hitler's audacity and boldness had so succeeded that it quieted every voice of reason left in Germany.

Sept. 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland and World War II had begun. The enormous tragedy of it all is that it could probably have been prevented if the League of Nations had boldly stood against Hitler and backed him down at the beginning.

World War II concluded with the replacement of the League of Nations with the United Nations, whose purpose was to prevent, through international cooperation, another war to end all wars.

The historical parallels between the 1930s and the 1990s are unmistakable. Throughout the 1990s, what President George W. Bush aptly dubbed the "Axis of Evil" took turns testing U.N. resolve and noting the reaction of the global community.

First, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait and survived the U.N.-led war to push his troops back across the Iraqi border. His Axis counterparts watched as he defied the U.N.'s repeated resolutions with impunity. (When Saddam's Iraq finally fell 12 years later, it was at the hands of the United States-led coalition over the vociferous objections of the United Nations Saddam had so blatantly defied.)

After observing the U.N.'s response to Iraqi aggression, Kim Jong-Il pushed the envelope still further with the first North Korean nuclear standoff in 1994. That resulted in the international community bribing Pyongyang not to develop nuclear weapons. President Clinton gave him all sorts of "goodies" to get him to back off his nuke program.

Like any good extortionist, Kim Jong-Il took the bribe but ignored the terms. He got away with it for eight years while the U.N. blustered and threatened him with letters of diplomatic protest. He learned that he could get all kinds of rewards for rattling missiles and then getting the U.N. nations to bribe him to stop.

Meanwhile, an even more dangerous aggressor was taking note. Iran's mad mullahs carefully observed the U.N.'s response. Iran, the third member of the Axis of Evil, began testing the U.N. in 1998 when its own nuclear program was uncovered. It has managed to hold the international community at bay by creating the diplomatic equivalent to a Mexican standoff, thanks to its ideological links with Islamofacism and the threat of escalating the war. Now, Iran is only a few months, if that, from nuclear capability.

Now we have the North Korean missile launch tests, coming in open defiance of the United Nations. And to add insult and to intensify the provocation, the launch was timed to coincide with both our Fourth of July and the launch of the space shuttle Discovery.

The North Korean launch was deemed a failure by the U.S. because it exploded some 40 seconds after launch at an undetermined altitude.

But it is worth nothing that a 1998 Iranian missile test – based on the same North Korean missile design – also failed, detonating some 40 seconds after launch after reaching an altitude of 180 miles. It is also worth noting that a nuclear weapon detonated 180 miles above the United States would generate an EMP pulse that experts say would instantly plunge half the country into the technological 1890s.

As I write this column, North Korea is preparing several more missiles for "test" launch.

The United Nations is in a dither. Diplomatic letters of protest are flying like confetti. Military and intelligence analysts warn darkly of all the important lessons learned by Pyongyang, even though the test itself was considered a failure.

Maybe it wasn't Pyongyang that the July 4th missile tests were intended to educate. If the Axis of Evil analogy holds true to its historical template, the lessons were really intended for the mad mullahs in Tehran.

It's now their turn to move.

History teaches us that only the aggressors learn from history. The appeasers never learn from it. But the stakes today are far more dangerous than ever before. Now Armageddon looms large before us.

Mass Aliyah may have already begun.

Mass Aliyah may have already begun.

The following may be a strange way to show you what is happening on the ground here in Israel in regards to Aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel) but it certainly makes the point.

Connie and I have rented from a couple of Druses who moved to Holland four years ago. It’s a lovely place with grapes and fruit trees sitting in the Judean hills, but I must also say you could find many safer places to live. We daily have to travel by several “Palestinian” villages, and as you might remember I’ve been shot at a couple of times. But we loved living here, the air is clean and the view is breathtaking. One of the things that made this place so attractive to us was the monthly rent was only $600 per month, while anything close to this quality in Jerusalem at that time would have been at least $1,500 a month.

So we started searching for a new place to live and have we been surprised to see what has happened to the prices in the past 4 years. We have been reading in the Jerusalem Post how the real estate market has gone crazy in Jerusalem and throughout Israel over the past few years but we were still not ready for what we found.

Three bedroom apartments in Jerusalem are now renting for upwards to $3,000 per month. We found 3 bedroom houses renting for as high as $6,000+ per month.

Connie and I made Aliyah in 1979 and we have never bought a place because we have always felt it was not what we should spend money on when we knew of so many needs in ministry. But in the past rent was always been reasonable and we always were able to find long-term rental and at bargain prices without a lot of trouble, but those days have long gone.

The reason for the very high increase in real estate is not one we here in Israel can complain about, at least not out loud. Jews from France, Germany and all over Europe as well as from the US and Canada have been buying apartments faster then they can be built and willing to pay a premium price for them. In Jerusalem alone it’s hard to find a neighborhood that is not under construction on nearly every block as new apartment buildings are going up everywhere. All around Jerusalem the hillsides are turning into expensive housing projects. What is also very good news Jews from the US and Canada are now pouring into Israel by the thousands. It seems that nearly very month Officials from the Government are meeting planes at the Tel-Aviv airport welcoming new immigrants from north America to Israel.

What is not good news is the average Israeli is finding it almost impossible to afford buying an apartment as the price has rose in some cases 400 to 500% over the past 5 years. When a very large majority of these newly purchased apartments are bought by Jews who don’t want to live here at this time but want to be sure they have a place to run to when the times gets bad for them where they now live. This of course also raises the monthly rental way beyond the average Israelis ability to rent.

For example when a young couple gets married it has always been the custom for the parents to get together and buy them an apartment or house if possible. But families are finding that impossible these days, for what did cost $150,000 now runs close to a million.

I am telling you this because it is a real indicator of what is happening on the ground here in Israel as far as Aliyah and future Aliyah. As for Connie and I we have found a place in another Moshave in the Judean Hills at what one might consider with today’s prices a real deal. We still haven’t completed the negotiations on the place but it looks like we will come to terms soon.

Has Israel been sold out,

or are they just plain stupid?

With the former Chief of Staff of the IDF who was fired by Sharon once again saying I told you so, we find the IDF back in the Jewish Settlements in Gaza. And Hamas putting up a fight with gun battles, most of the “Palestinians” who have been killed have still not been touched with the hundreds of artillery shelling but by IAF missiles as they were preparing to launch more Kassams into Ashkelon (a city of 120,000 Jews).

But that hasn’t’ stopped these Islamic Terrorists now known mostly as the PA (Hamas controlled Government). For we are still daily getting shelled in the outskirts of Ashkelon and in the city of Sderot where they have been getting bombarded daily for months with little to no help from the Kadima Government led by Ehud Olmert, in fact, over the past few days the Kassam rockets have increased.

The left that now leads Israel’s Government was wrong at Oslo and the arming of the so-called Palestinians, they were wrong at Camp David where Arafat made a fool out of Clinton and Barak. They were wrong at Sharm where Abbas lied in the face of Bush and Sharon, and today this Israeli Government is either in partnership with those who would destroy Israel or they have swallowed to many stupid pills. But one thing is certain today Israel is facing threats from all sides and at a higher level than any time over the past 58 years.

Israel has always dealt from a position of strength with its Islamic neighbors who have but one goal, the total and complete destruction of the Jewish State. This is a very tough neighborhood and only the strong survive. Arab mentality is built on the rule of the sword, if they are not fighting and killing an enemy they kill each other, there is never peace with these Islamic murderers.

In my last article I said that the humanitarian aid now being sent into Gaza is the wrong thing to do, for it only prolongs the war, as it keeps the enemies of Israel strong enough to keep killing us, and they continue to suffer more. I received several emails telling me that my statement wasn’t a “Christian” thing to say, that I should be more compassionate. What these misguided souls don’t understand is the only humane there is to do is to stop all aid until they surrender completely, for at that time they will be more than willing to negotiate a peace with Israel. To continue sending in the aid only prolongs the misery and bloodshed. Believing themselves to be doing a good thing they are in fact causing many more deaths.

Connie and I will be traveling outside of Israel for a few days this coming week and we ask for your prayers, it is necessary for us to travel far more than we would like but there is no other way to get these things done. We both know as do hundreds of others that it is time to purchase the larger boat, and we are searching and praying every day. So much still needs to be accomplished and we feel we have precious little time.

A second letter has been sent out to the safe houses. Please answer as soon as you receive it.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it. Shalom, jerry golden

Gay Pride, A Presidential Proclamation

Yes, roses are blooming, summer vacation is upon us, and gasoline prices have soared, but there was much more to think about in June. Just ask the Lesbian/ Gay/ Bisexual/ Transgender community. You see, this is their month. June of 2000 marked the first annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Month—this, by Presidential proclamation. William J. Clinton encouraged all Americans to observe the month of June with programs, ceremonies, and activities that recognize gay and lesbian Americans.

I’m at a loss as to why any pride day is necessary for all to observe; however, if there is a boys’ pride day, then it stands to reason that a girls’ pride day is in order. If there is Norwegian pride, why not Swedish pride? Given African-American pride, why not Norwegian-American pride? How about Yankee-Dixie pride? Red coats-blue coats pride?

Along these lines, the fitting question, “Why is there no straight pride?” is posed in a lusty internet newsletter, Your Guide to Lesbian Life. If gays are free to be proud, certainly straights are. Not according to Kathy Belge. This would-be “Miss Manners” of lesbianism reasons that countering gay- with straight-pride events is “usually nothing more than thinly veiled anti-gay protest, a backlash against gay rights.”

In Belge’s view, gays exclusively are compelled to be here, proud and celebrating self. For non-gays to follow suit purportedly is vindictive. Simple as that.

Institutional Leftism

A study released by the Center for the Study of Popular Culture revealed what David Horowitz calls “institutional leftism.” Polls conducted even by liberal newspapers like The Boston Globe reveal opposition to gay marriage by as much as a 2-1 margin, yet public universities, colleges, high schools, and grade schools openly champion politically-correct diversity coupled with alternative lifestyles. Not surprisingly, two-thirds of our high school seniors polled favor legalization of homosexual marriage. Even more favor homosexual adoptions, and fully 90% favor “hate crimes” laws that exceed protections afforded other groups—e.g., the religious right.

A Zogby-GLCensus Partners poll identified legal recognition of same-sex marriage as a primary goal of the gay movement. To the contrary, ninth-grade civics taught me that the traditional family serves as basic unit of every healthy community. Fossil that I am, I believe it. It may be that you disagree, accepting instead that gays join the ranks of blacks and Native Americans in need of emancipation. After all, in 2003 the Massachusetts Supreme Court advanced the sentiment that gay marriage serves to extend civil rights to disadvantaged groups (Goodrich v. the Massachusetts Department of Public Health).

I give you that; however, even authentic advocates of the civil rights movement (Alveda King, for one) disagree and, for that, are met with intensifying hostility. Free exchange of ideas is silenced by means of speech codes and anti-harassment laws. We’re talking a one-way street.

Believe it. The National Endowment for the Arts funds Terrence McNally’s Corpus Christi, retelling the Passion Play from a gay perspective offensive to some 70,000 Christian churchgoers (and then some) whose taxes fund it—like it or not. Tax dollars likewise support the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Lesbian Visual Arts, and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. While these events generate a ton of business for merchants, thus returning tax money to the cities, this is not a monetary matter. To Christians, it’s a matter of faith and the free exercise thereof.

Western Culture’s Extreme Makeover

Most agree that Western culture is undergoing the ultimate “extreme makeover.” Homosexual marriage is now legal in British Columbia and Ontario, Belgium and Holland. Additionally, countries having ratified The Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) are compelled to conform to a radical feminist agenda inclusive of legalized lesbianism.

Activists from ACT-UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) and OUT (Oppression under Target) chant, march, and invade businesses and government offices all the while angrily thrusting their oft-vulgar signs into the faces of “intolerant” traditionalists. While fringe anti-gay advocates are known to act in similarly unseemly fashion, media portrayal more often than not favors the politically correct.

Answering Dr. Phil’s signature question, “How is this working for you?” a 1998 Psychological Reports article shaves an estimated twenty-to-thirty years off life expectancy for the average homosexual. Executive director of Exodus International, Bob Davis suggests that gay men are six times more likely than straight ones to commit suicide. True, STDs and suicide visit the ranks of heterosexuals. To a Christian, however, the issue isn’t so much hetero- as opposed to homo- sexuality. It is rather the upholding of Biblically-mandated heterosexual monogamy confined to holy wedlock. It works for me, so (believe as you will) please allow me my convictions.

Who Hates Whom?

The author of Canada’s hate-propaganda law, Svend Robinson believes vilifying gays to be reprehensible. I agree; however, those who decline to celebrate so-called diversity are tagged by some as “homophobes,” “breeders,” and “hate-mongers.” Robinson himself freely besmirches Christian leaders as “ecclesiastical dictators.”

Perhaps you know of the worldwide Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who present themselves as a community-service order of “queer” nuns. Theirs is a gay spirituality whose ritual is rooted in faerie paganism and eastern philosophy. Initiates seek “to ruin all detrimental conditions,” including guilt, even for the guilty. This being the case, they “go forth and sin some more” in hopes of expiating stigmatic guilt purportedly placed on them by “right-wing religious and political organizations.”

Note that if any such organization were to use the term “queer” in reference to these would-be sisters of a Guilt-free Gospel, it would meet with certain criticism. Never mind that self-proclaimed sisters proudly call themselves “queer.”

“Hate” evidently travels one way in that it is socially acceptable to vilify the one group, but not the other. Case in point: For opposing Missouri’s efforts to license gays as foster parents, a Christian social worker was outright fired. There’s more. When Dr. Laura Schlessinger was defamed and subsequently ousted from TV for her family-friendly bias, shelters for neglected children actually refused her extraordinarily generous charitable gifts. In both cases, children—not gays—were victimized by diversity.

In a word: Hate is as hate does.

The Movement Mainstreamed

Given that no less than twenty-eight openly gay characters are paraded on primetime TV, it’s only “natural” to feature a boy allegedly trapped in the wrong body. Take, for example, A Girl like Me, featured this June as a new original Lifetime-for-Women movie based on a true story in which Eddie morphed to Gwen. A female licensed therapist (herself born a biological male) fingered not trans-genderism, but rather its repression, as indicative of a mental health problem.

The likeable lead character is held up as courageous, having lived life “more than most” and “having loved too much—more than others deserved.” This touching sentiment of a grieving mother flew in the face of Gwen’s troubled life marked by stealing, lying, underage drinking, and bad-mouthing this single (might I add, heterosexual) parent who selflessly loved her ill-fated son. Sadly, Gwen suffered an egregious, untimely death on the heels of self-engineered deception.

Lifetime’s “commitment” to viewers appears to champion trans-genderism. The unmistakable message is that “good guys” so inclined courageously jump the gender track, come what may; but “bad guys” (tagged repressors) favor finding self within one’s biological gender frame.

How Shall We Then Live?

In view of the natural sympathy evoked by senseless crimes against trans-genders and gays, their groups opportunistically showcase victims to advance political and social goals that are unsavory to many. Two examples are Lifetime’s Eddie Araujo (played by J.D. Pardo) and Teena Brandon (portrayed in Boys Don’t Cry by Oscar nominee Hilary Swank).

In contrast, the film I Do Exist gives narratives of five former gays who made peace with their biological gender, having experienced profound personal transformations. If shifting is an option, as clearly it is, why promote coming out and identifying as gay as the only healthy response to same-sex attractions?

Organizations as Exodus International, Spatula Ministries, and Genesis Counseling are good starts at providing much-needed support for recovering gays committed to finding their way home in these admittedly perplexing times. Even so, those seeking reparative therapy are forced to dodge one-way traffic head on.

Although instrumental in removing homosexuality from the APA list of mental disorders (1973), Columbia University’s Dr. Robert Spitzer later assumed an unexpected posture. Surprising to some, he contended that reparative therapy counseling serves to shift one’s sexual orientation from gay back to heterosexual. This begs the question, “If it ain’t broke, why fix it?”

We find here yet another example of one-way, all-the-way Institutional Leftism.

Despite threats of an impending impeachment, possible indictments, descending ratings and magazine articles[1] claiming that he is the worst president in history, George Bush has had an incredibly successful presidential administration. It is probably more successful than any other in the last 100 years. We can attribute this to his character, his society affiliations, his astute political appointments, his Yale education, his experience and his Eastern Establishment family background. The vast and very vocal Christian right also played a major part in his success. They were greatly influenced by Bush’s claim that his role model was Jesus Christ. He is the right man for this crucial time in history. His success and accomplishments are unmatched. His America First Acceptance Speech of 2000 bears absolutely no resemblance to his One World Order actions.[2] Despite the globalist accomplishments of previous administrations, he has virtually left all of them in the dust. And speaking of leaving people in the dust – as a result of his invasion of Iraq, depleted uranium dust has covered more territory, crept into more water and affected the health of more people than at any other time in history.

George W. Bush is definitely his father’s son. The senior Bush, also a member of The Order, served the ignoble One World Order cause as a Vice-President, President, head of the CIA, ambassador to the People's Republic of China and other influential positions.[3] It is unfortunate that the citizens do not have a complete record of his many deeds and activities. This is partly due to Executive Order 13233 which conveniently restricts access to the records of former presidents.[4] This was drafted by Alberto R. Gonzales, then White House council and issued by George W. Bush on November 1, 2001, just before the National Archives was due to release some very revealing records, “some of which might prove embarrassing to the President's father, George H. W. Bush, due to his involvement in the Iran-Contra Affair.”[5]

Censorship by Executive Order or theft by former national security advisers suppresses or destroys a lot of evidence. Any “leak” is absolutely intentional! With the Bush administration, secrecy is epidemic,[6] much more genuine than any impending crisis-driven bird flu outbreak. Donald H. Rumsfeld is one happy Gilead Sciences stock holder with this orchestrated improbable scare crisis. He was Chairman of the Board of Gilead until early 2001 when he became Secretary of Preemptive War. Tamiflu, made by Gilead, is the bird flu drug of choice in the world market.[7] He will certainly not suffer any Martha Stewart style complications. Nor will the insider/insiders who made millions immediately before 9/11 because of their foreknowledge. Can insider trading be repetitive, contagious or addictive, I wonder…

The elder Bush appointed two Supreme Court judges: David Souter, a Rhodes Scholar and Clarence Thomas who is a member of the right-wing Federalist Society which tends to dominate the legal profession. Scalia is also a member of the Federalist Society. The Rhodes Trust is intent on overthrowing the American government. Both Scalia’s and Thomas’ votes were crucial in putting Bush into the White House in 2000 despite a minority of popular votes.

Son Bush has also pushed through two Supreme Court judges who will further the cause. Naïve Republican supporters focused on the abortion issue, the so-called “settled law of the land”, when shoo-ins John Roberts and Samuel Alito were nominated after the Harriet Miers pretense. Anticipated rejection of Miers set up easier acceptance of successive nominees. “Conservatives” would have been wiser to focus on those nominee’s views of executive powers. Fathers with unfinished goals typically hope that their children can rise to the occasion and complete those unfinished tasks.[8] George W. has certainly done this. In fact, to ensure continuation of the agenda, he has chosen or appointed many of the same accomplices as were in his father’s sphere of influence.[9] Additionally, he has selected several CFR members to speed up the pace.[10]

President George H. W. Bush, a member of The Order, said in 1991: “We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order, a world where the rule of law, not the rule of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.'s founders.” Nuclear clouds and deadly depleted uranium dust are rarely experienced in the natural interactions of the jungle, only human animals use such implements of death against their own kind.

The term “New World Order” isn’t new. The term was used by Adolph Hitler when he established his 1,000 year Third Reich. It was also used by Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Napoleon Bonaparte, Vladimir Lenin, and Karl Marx. Globalism, Nazism, Communism, Socialism, Zionism, Illuminism and Fascism are synonymous terms as well as the political means to bring about a one world government, comprised of the wealthy unelected elite and obedient slaves. There will be no independent, critical thinking middle class.

Papa Bush is extremely loyal to the United Nations which is attempting to replace Christianity with a new world religion. “It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance,” said President George Bush, Sr. while addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations on February 1, 1992

Referring to Saddam Hussein, President George H. W. Bush said on January 1991: “If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then his lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging new world order we now see, this long dreamed-of vision we've all worked toward for so long.” He said this just prior to bombing Iraq into the Stone Age and killing thousands of people. Lawlessness is lawlessness – whether it is Saddam Hussein using United States supplied weapons of mass destruction against the citizens of Iraq or a United States president using United States weapons of mass destruction against the citizens of Iraq. The results are the same: thousands of dead Iraqis! Only the captured, the mind-controlled or the losers in this war racket go to trial for crimes against humanity. Labels make all the difference: calling it war justifies the mounds of dead bodies attributed to the United States and the acquiescent accommodating taxpayers.

Bush couldn’t have done a better job if he were a dictator. “If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.” President-elect George W. Bush, CNN News, aired December 18, 2000. He is a member of The Order of Skull and Bones first and an American Republican second. Bush has taken the following oath twice: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” We do not have a copy of the oath for The Order of Skull and Bones – it is secret. That should tell volumes.

“Members of The Order of Skull ad Bones take an oath that absolves them from any allegiance to any nation or king or government or constitution, and that includes the negating of any subsequent oath which they may be required to take. They swear allegiance only to the Order and its goal of a One World Order...according to the oath Bush took when he was initiated into Skull and Bones, his oath of office as President of the United States means nothing.”[11]

Just what has Bush attained in bringing America into a One World Order?

He continually minimizes the Constitution by repeatedly demonstrating his unwillingness to follow it

He has issued thousands of unconstitutional Presidential Executive Orders

The invasion of Afghanistan 3,000 - 3,400 dead civilians [October 7, 2001 thru March 2002]

Consequent resumption of poppy production in Afghanistan

He got rid of the Bridas Corporation an obstacle to the United States controlling the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline.

Invasion of Iraq – see the population reducing Civilian body count

The unimpeded attack of America on 9-11

Created a perpetual enemy: terrorism

He strengthened FEMA

Invasion by invitation of America – 2000 -2008 by poverty stricken illegal aliens to be used as cheap labor

Continued destruction of the middle class

Increased the deficit – pouring trillions into the banker’s coffers.

Politically blackmailed Congress into passing the un-read CAFTA

Politically blackmailed Congress into passing the un-read Patriot Act 1 and 2

Established the nefarious Department of Homeland Security

Fooled ordinary Christians into believing he was one of them

Returned the war hawk neo-cons to leadership positions in strategic fields

Collaborated with two foreign countries about the dissolution of our borders

Enriched his cronies and family through no-bid contracts

Strengthened Detention and Removal Strategy for a Secure Homeland 2003-2012 – part of the Department of Homeland Security. PDF file

Implemented the building of all of those detention centers by Halliburton

Bush has claimed the authority to break more rules than any other president

Sent billions of confiscated tax dollars out of the country – not his to give

Abetted in the sale of national properties to foreign governments

He told us to stop worrying about conspiracy theories and some people did

He has responded to the concerns of the drug companies and agri-business

Through his efforts there are higher profits for the pharmaceutical industry

Got rid of that annoying Geneva Conventions requiring humane treatment

He broadened the government’s wiretapping, surveillance and search-and-seizure authority

He ushered in a new era of secrecy for presidential activities

He has assumed sole authority to impose martial law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the Posse Comitatus Act

He bypassed the Senate and appointed John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations.

Instituted The National Security Strategy of the United States of America
Although he has accomplished many things there are a few areas where he has failed: he did not find Osama bin Laden. There are 750,000 Americans who are homeless, 250,000 of them are Veterans. 1,600,000 jobs have been lost in the private sector since Bush took office. He failed to get those warrants or the authority for all that wire tapping. And the number of Washington lobbyists, with their congressional bribery and perks, has increased. But, hey, we can’t quibble about the things he didn’t accomplish when we see just how successful he has been in the issues that impact Americans the most!

Illegal entry into the country has doubled since Bush’s infamous guest worker flood-gate invitation. This has certainly ravaged our sovereignty and pitted the pro-amnesty against the no-amnesty factions. The illegals are mostly comprised of poor Mexicans, made poorer by constitutionally illegal trade agreements like NAFTA. “George H. W. Bush's government, along with the Conservative Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, spearheaded the negotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Bill Clinton signed in 1993.”[12] NAFTA, which was staunchly supported by Governor George W. Bush,[13] is a major means of combining Canada, the United States and Mexico into the North American Community. The next plan to attack our sovereignty is another phony trade agreement, the FTAA.

July 18, 1993 -- CFR member and Trilateralist Henry Kissinger writes in the Los Angeles Times concerning NAFTA: “What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system... a first step toward a new world order.”

“When NAFTA was passed, one of the primary arguments was that trading with Mexico would create new jobs in America. The argument prevailed despite historical and research studies indicating that a NAFTA would encourage movement of manufacturing and labor intensive jobs to Mexican nationals, at the expense of American jobs. The Mexicans spent millions on lobbyists, and in public meetings in Mexico, bragged about how with NAFTA they had ‘out-traded the Americans again’ and that a new flood of industrial jobs would come into Mexico. NAFTA passed, and the flow of capital into Mexico increased further. Mexico created new companies almost daily, but also incurred new debt. Of the some 70 billion dollars invested in Mexico, only 10 billion actually went into new factories, industry, capital creation, and job creation entities. The rest went into speculation, debt service, and into the coffers of the 32 wealthiest ‘haciendas’ of Mexico. Much of it flowed into offshore banks and investment houses.”[14] “Mexico is a land of 90,000,000 people. Perhaps 200,000 people in Mexico control most of the wealth, and some 32 families, all billionaires, control the vast majority of wealth in Mexico.” In this regard, there are similarities with the United States.

Unfortunately, Mexico, along with many other third world countries, was a victim of some economic hit men. Their tactics were recently revealed by John Perkins in his excellent, must-read book: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. Mexico was generating about 30 billion dollars a year towards paying the debt service or interest on its international banking cabal loans. Yet the actual cost amounted to 40-45 billion dollars per year. Alan Greenspan, then chairman of the privately owned Federal Reserve increased the interest rates in late 1994 which “devastated the Mexican Economy.”[15] In December 1994, Mexico devalued the peso by about 40 percent.[16] Congress immediately approved a $40 taxpayer funded billion dollar loan despite debt burdened Mexico’s inability to repay it. That loan was merely a transfer from our pockets into the international bankers’ coffers.

Spending confiscated taxpayer money to partially “fix” orchestrated problems furthers the One World Order goal. Government solutions deceptively deprive security seeking citizens of their liberties by installing totalitarian policies. This is the case with our current southern border problem. We have moved from a protective, American friendly immigration policy to an open Swiss cheese farce of a border.[17] While Americans take sides and witness Republican and Democrat congressmen pair up against us, we fail to recognize that the disbanding of both the southern and northern borders is part of an organized plan to reject national sovereignty and establish the North American Community encompassing Canada, Mexico and the United States.[18]

All the attending uproar and big-money-financed demonstrations are for mass media benefit. “In late December 2005, Mexican President Vicente Fox hired a lobbying firm to sweeten political sentiment in the US towards Mexicans and the immigration issue. The same PR expert and GOP political consultant helped George W. Bush defeat Ann Richards for the governorship of Texas in 1994 and worked on both Bush's presidential campaigns.”[19] This PR firm planned highly organized, expensive, flag-flying, controlled opposition demonstrations with the expected congressional treasonous response. It was designed to change mass American opposition into complacent acceptance – and provide justification for the impending national ID, which will serve as an alleged attempt to monitor all of the newly created citizens.

President George W. Bush said: “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”[20] Is this just another one of those silly Bushisms to make us think he is stupid or the absolute truth – you decide! Or does “The Decider” get to make that decision?

Venezuela's Chavez planning arms-for-oil trip to N. Korea

Venezuela's Chavez planning arms-for-oil trip to N. Korea
Special to World
Wednesday, July 5, 2006
North Korea and Venezuela are discussing a strategic alliance motivated by a common goal — expanding anti-American forces.

During Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il in late July, the two countries are also expected to craft an oil-for-arms deal.
Venezuela's leader is most likely to fly to Pyongyang at the end of July on the occasion of his planned trip to Russia on July 25. Chavez told reporters that he plans to discuss science and technology cooperation with the North.

Analysts in Seoul say Kim and Chavez would mainly discuss forming a "strategic alliance" against the United States.

Ties between the two nations have been warming. Last September, Yang Hyoung-Sup, deputy head of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, traveled to Venezuela, followed by an economic delegation's visit in November led by Trade Minister Rim Kyong-Man.

Venezuela set up its first-ever permanent ambassadorial post in Pyongyang in April, 32 years after bilateral ties were forged in 1974.

Venezuela's Foreign Ministry delegation traveled to the North in May. "North Korea is expected to establish its embassy in Venezuela in the near future," a diplomatic source said.

Chavez, who has promised a socialist revolution to end poverty in his country, is forging alliances with such U.S. foes as Cuba, Iran, North Korea and some African countries.

Since Chavez took office, the leftist government has been working to move away from the U.S. "shadow" and sell its oil in exchange for a military build up. Chavez was first elected president in 1998 and was re-elected in 2000.

Chavez claimed in September 2005 that the United States was preparing to attack North Korea, Iran and Venezuela. He has aggressively supported Iran's efforts to develop nuclear technology and has helped undermine the U.S. embargo of Cuba by increasing trade and providing oil to the communist island on favorable terms.

During the planned summit, Venezuela, the world's fifth-largest oil-rich country, is expected to offer energy resources to North Korea, which suffers from energy shortages after the United States halted heavy oil supplies following the North's admission of nuclear weapons programs.

In return, North Korea can offer conventional weapons and missiles to Venezuela, which is looking to fortify its military power.

Death sentence for not praying
Islamic regime spells out law
for Muslims in Somali capital

Posted: July 6, 2006

Somali Muslims protest U.S.
Muslims who fail to pray five times daily will be sentenced to death under the rule of Islamic clerics who have taken over the Somali capital Mogadishu.

"He who does not perform prayers will be considered as infidel, and Sharia law orders that that person be killed," said Sheikh Abdalla Ali, a founder and high-ranking official in the Supreme Islamic Council of Somalia, reported Agence France-Presse.

The edict was issued by a leading cleric speaking at the opening of an Islamic court in the capital last night, who added it was the duty of every Somali to implement the provisions of Sharia, or Islamic law.

The Quran requires Muslims to pray five times daily.

Mogadishu was taken over in June by militia – now called the Conservative Council of Islamic Courts – that routed a U.S.-backed alliance of warlords after four months of fighting. The U.S. wanted to stem what officials call "creeping Talibanization" of Somalia by the courts and harboring of terrorists, including al-Qaida members.

Late Tuesday, militia members broke up a protest against a ban on watching television, shooting dead two people among a crowd viewing a World Cup game at a local cinema.

The accused killers, however, face prosecution under Sharia law for shooting unarmed civilians and could be sentenced to death.

In recent months, according to AFP, Muslim militiamen have presided over several public executions ordered by Islamic courts.

Somalia is regarded as a predominantly moderate Muslim country, but the Islamists have vowed to impose Sharia law nationwide, challenging a mostly powerless transitional government.

Last month, the Islamic courts signed a mutual recognition pact with the government, but are at odds with the regime over a number of issues. The Islamists oppose a proposal to deploy foreign peacekeepers to help establish central authority.

The African nation has been in turmoil, with no effective government, for the past 16 years.

The leader of the Islamic militia, Sheik Hassan Dahir Aweys, is listed by the U.S. State Department as a suspected al-Qaida collaborator. Bush administration officials say Aweys was an associate of Osama bin Laden in the early 1990s.

Transport systems in India's financial capital Mumbai (Bombay) have been badly hit by three days of heavy rainfall.

Mumbai hit badly by monsoon chaos
Transport systems in India's financial capital Mumbai (Bombay) have been badly hit by three days of heavy rainfall.

The severe weather has forced commuters to wade through filthy, knee-deep waters and schools have been closed.

Flights at the international airport, India's busiest, and train services have been badly disrupted.

It has triggered fears of a repeat of last year's deluge which bought the city to a practical standstill and claimed 1,000 lives.

At least 30 people have died across India after several days of incessant rain.

Many residents in Mumbai say that the civic authorities have not done enough to prepare for this year's monsoon season and flash floods.

Forecasters warn that more "heavy to very heavy showers" were on the way.


The authorities in the eastern state of Orissa said on Tuesday that at least 21 people have been killed in two districts in the state due to landslides.

Thousands of families living in low-lying areas have been evacuated and moved to safer areas.

In the neighbouring state of Jharkhand, nine people died when a boat carrying them capsized on the Kanhar river.

Water levels in many of the state's rivers have risen sharply after two days of heavy rain.

30 die, millions impacted by China storms

30 die, millions impacted by China storms
Flooding displaces tens of thousands along east coast

The Associated Press

Updated: 2:32 p.m. CT July 6, 2006
SHANGHAI, China - Torrential rains and a tornado killed at least 30 people as storms battered eastern China this week, with millions more affected by flooding and other storm damage, state media and officials said Thursday.

Twenty-seven people were reported dead in Jiangsu province west of Shanghai, and about 40,000 were evacuated, said Li Qiubao, an official of the Jiangsu Civil Affairs Bureau. Newspapers showed residents using makeshift rafts to ferry through flooded streets.

A tornado also smashed through the town of Dafeng in Jiangsu, killing three people, the official newspaper China Daily reported.

In neighboring Anhui province, another three people were killed, the China Daily cited Wang Haili, a local Civil Affairs Ministry official, as saying. It gave no details on the deaths.

Wang said at least 44,400 people were displaced along the flood-prone Huai River.

In total, more than 13 million people were affected by the storms, the reports said.

At least 349 people died in China last month due to flooding, landslides and other weather-related disaster, the government said. The official Xinhua News Agency said that another 99 people were still missing, while damage was estimated at $2.5 billion.

China suffers hundreds of rain deaths every summer. The impact of flooding has been worsened by heavy farming and tree-cutting that has left cleared hillsides unable to trap rain. Major cities are shielded by flood dikes but small towns, especially in mountainous areas, are vulnerable to deadly flash floods.

China is expected to suffer from more typhoons than usual this year due to an unusually warm current off its Pacific and high temperatures over the Tibetan plateau.

N. Korea missile aimed at area off Hawaii

N. Korea missile aimed at area off Hawaii - report
TOKYO (Reuters) - A North Korean missile launched on Wednesday was aimed at an area of the ocean close to Hawaii, a Japanese newspaper reported on Friday.
Experts estimated the Taepodong-2 ballistic missile to have a range of up to 6,000 km, putting Alaska within its reach. Wednesday's launch apparently failed shortly after take-off and the missile landed in the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan, a few hundred kilometres from the launch pad.

But data from U.S. and Japanese Aegis radar-equipped destroyers and surveillance aircraft on the missile's angle of take-off and altitude indicated that it was heading for waters near Hawaii, the Sankei Shimbun reported, citing multiple sources in the United States and Japan.

North Korea may have targeted Hawaii to show the United States that it was capable of landing a missile there, or because it is home to the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific fleet, the paper said.

An alternative explanation might be that a missile could accidentally hit land if fired towards Alaska, the report said.

A separate report in the Mainichi Shimbun daily cited U.S. and Japanese government officials as saying a piece of the Taepodong-2 missile fell off immediately after take-off, strengthening the view that the launch was a failure.

The year is 2026. Well past middle age now, you still remember the life that was. Memory is a curse, you think, for it means endless grieving for the America that once meant freedom, hope, and plenty. Only 20 years ago you were part of a thriving middle class envied by the world. Despite encroaching globalism, your future seemed secure.

Today, your family hovers at poverty levels and there is no American middle class, just the corporate elite, an army of government operatives, the working and non-working poor -- and the gangs. An endless supply of migrants willing to work for less keeps wages starvation-low.

You speak Spanish now in public, as discrimination against English speakers often turns ugly, and it’s unwise to attract attention. Your grandchildren, even at home, speak the country’s new language and reprimand you when you slip into English, which is now associated with hate and intolerance. You worry about what your grandchildren are taught at the government schools but hold your tongue, as they might report you.

Thankfully, you’ve so far escaped the dreaded human settlements but, like other families, you, your adult children and grandchildren live together. Massive housing shortages and economic necessity, but also personal safety, mandate multi-family living. The same kinds of knife-wielding, gun-toting gangs that once instigated drive-by shootings and forced cancellation of community events, now roam most neighborhood streets at will.

Appealing to the police is futile, since most either work for political bosses or drug lords which, in many areas, is the same thing. And, as light-skinned people are considered invaders and occupiers, the law is more threat than protection. There’s no relief from either the Constitution or the courts, the latter having dismantled the former, in the process shattering the concept of God-given unalienable rights as well.

You imagine conditions for today’s Christians are similar to those in China a few decades ago Most worship is private, occurring in the home, the churches having gradually been closed or commandeered by government agencies. The Gospel message is carried quietly, underground.

Surveillance cameras abound. Nevertheless, the government encourages people to spy on each other because, as the press constantly warns, fighting terrorism is everybody’s job. Since 2007, anyone crossing the old national borders has been required to accept tracking chips implanted under the skin, just as the VeriChip Company proposed in 2006. Then, the national – actually, international – identity cards were imposed on all citizens, but threats of terrorism only grew. Nor had Operation Gun Confiscation in 2009 reduced terrorism. It had simply put law abiding citizens at the mercy of terrorist gangs who suddenly possessed all the firepower.

Government at all levels has become hopelessly corrupt, the politicians and bureaucrats entrenched. Elections are still held – for the sake of our democracy, they say – but everyone knows that electronic results are changed with the click of a computer key whenever the bosses order it. Paper records long ago went the way of English-language ballots, outlawed by Mexican judges.

You’re certain the country is wallowing in depression, but the government insists the region is enjoying unprecedented prosperity. The dollar, once the world’s premier currency, was phased out in 2009 and a new currency – the Amero – phased in. It buys very little, but there’s very little to buy.

Unable to withstand the onslaught of millions of new dependents, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid collapsed several years ago, taking welfare systems and, finally, the whole economy with them.

You knew in 2006 that passage of the Bush-promoted McCain-Kennedy Immigration law would devastate the country and, according to all reliable polls, a big majority of your fellow Americans agreed. But, despite strong public opposition, a lame duck Congress called into session after the November elections, passed it into law.

Supporters claimed that 12 million illegal aliens resided in the U.S. and were good, hardworking people who didn’t deserve deportation. Never mind if they broke U.S. laws, used fraudulent documents and stole the identity of American citizens, they and their families must be offered a path to citizenship and all entitlements.

Further, advocates demanded, the U.S. must initiate a guest worker program, enabling additional "human capital" to enter the U.S. legally. Like illegal aliens, guest workers and their families could become permanent residents or citizens and babies born here would continue to get automatic citizenship.

Opponents cried foul, warning the scheme was nothing more than amnesty for foreign lawbreakers and would destroy the country. Secure the borders and kill the jobs magnet, they demanded, and worked for passage of competing legislation in the House of Representatives.

Then came that attention-grabbing report from Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation. Even after his calculations forced the Senate to reduce the guest worker program, Rector predicted the Bush-McCain-Kennedy plan would increase America’s population by 66 million to 120 million over 20 years.

Critics railed against Rector’s calculations, accusing him of inflating numbers and making false assumptions. In reality, Rector’s figures were abysmally low and his assumptions inadequate.

Rector based his projections on an illegal population of 10 million, when the number likely exceeded 25 million. (A Bear Stearns study had put the number of illegals at 20 million in 2005, and even that might have been conservative. Another year, and a huge flood of new illegals hoping for easy citizenship accounted for at least an additional five million).

Appropriately, Rector warned that the guest worker program was essentially an open border provision that would "allow an almost unlimited number of workers and dependents to enter the U.S. from anywhere in the world and become citizens." But he ignored effects of the open border provisions incorporated into hemispheric trade agreements, e.g., the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which by themselves would bring chaos.

Hugely significant: Rector’s analysis of the impacts of the Bush-McCain-Kennedy bill failed to consider the consequences of a new Hispanic voting bloc. It swept Hillary Clinton into the presidency in 2008. With a new Democrat-controlled Congress, she worked swiftly to remove all numerical limits on visas, guest worker programs, and hemispheric immigration in general.

Then, Hillary accomplished what the first Bush president and her husband had launched with NAFTA, and which was pushed forward by the second Bush president with the Central American Free Trade Agreement and the Security and Prosperity Partnership – the North American Community, stepping stone to a European-style union of the entire hemisphere.

After the merger of Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., resulting in the continuous importation of crime, poverty, and disease, people stopped talking about the numbers. It was too late. Hillary had shown herself all too willing to use the sweeping police powers inherited from George W. Bush. The Patriot Act stifled all opposition.

By the end of President Schwarzenegger’s term, your America was a Third World jungle, devoid of all that had once made it the freest, most prosperous nation in the history of the world. Now, life is cheap, liberty a hopeless dream, and the pursuit of happiness a distant memory.

Painfully, you recall how, in 2006, concerned patriotic leaders asked for help. You were too busy to join a group or write a check. Contact your legislator? Too busy If only you – and other concerned Americans --had picked up the phone, called your congressional representative at 1(877)762-8762 and demanded: NO AMNESTY! NO GUEST WORKER PROGRAM! NO COMPROMISES!.

On this Independence Day, it behooves us to recall the principles of America's founding, especially in light of the ongoing attempt by today's political and commercial leaders to merge the United States into a hemispheric government. In fact, the clarion call for independence is just as fundamental, just as revolutionary as it was 230 years ago.

Regarding the signing of the Declaration of Independence John Adams said, "[Independence Day] will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore."

Adams went on to say, "You will think me transported with enthusiasm, but I am not. I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory; I can see that the end is more than worth all the means, that posterity will triumph in that day's transaction, even though we should rue it, which I trust in God we shall not."

Indeed, the signers of America's Declaration of Independence endured the sacrifice of toil and blood. Pertaining to the lives of the signers, David Limbaugh writes, "Of those 56 who signed the Declaration of Independence, nine died of wounds or hardships during the war. Five were captured and imprisoned, in each case with brutal treatment. Several lost wives, sons or entire families. One lost his thirteen children. Two wives were brutally treated. All were at one time or another the victims of manhunts and driven from their homes. Twelve signers had their homes completely burned. Seventeen lost everything they owned."

Yes, America's Declaration of Independence, which is our nation's birth certificate, was purchased at a very high price. Rightly did its primary author, Thomas Jefferson, invoke God's name no less than four times in the Declaration. Without God, our struggle for independence and freedom would have surely failed!

Jefferson, along with the vast majority of America's founders, knew that freedom was first the gift of God, not the accomplishment of men. He further understood that man's law must be subordinate to the natural laws of God.

Therefore, with an appeal to Heaven for the "rectitude of [their] intentions" America's Founding Fathers courageously forged a document that would put their own lives at risk, but would also change the course of history!

The question now is, "How long can we maintain our nation's independence?" The forces of global government seem to dominate both major parties in Washington, D.C., most corporate board rooms, and most news rooms (including the Fox News Channel).

In fact, hemispheric or regional government never had a more powerful and committed ally than President George W. Bush. Mark my words, if and when America loses its independence, it will have been G.W. Bush that led the way in making it happen! I will even be so bold as to say that G.W. Bush is the worst enemy American independence has had since old King George III of England!

Even as I write, Bush is pushing forward with his intentions to merge the United States into a trilateral government with Mexico and Canada. (For a more complete description of this fact, I invite my readers to listen to my radio interview with Jerome Corsi at [Click here to hear interview].

Therefore, if the United States is going to maintain its independence and freedom much beyond the year 2010 (the year Bush's new North American Union is scheduled to be in place), it will only be because millions of freedom-loving Americans are willing to fight for it!

Both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died on July 4, 1826. Daniel Webster gave the eulogy for both men on August 2. Included in his remarks on that notable day were these words: "It [the Declaration of Independence] is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God, it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and independence forever."

To Webster's words, I say a hearty AMEN! I promise no loyalty to the North American Union or to any other brand of global government! When the day comes that I am required to submit to any form of global authority, I will be an outlaw! There is no freedom without independence, and there is no independence without resolve! To my dying breath I will say with Daniel Webster, "Independence now, and independence forever!"

In spite of the fact that the American public continues to drug up and tune out via tell-a-vision, the impending numbers of potential “national emergencies” in this nation keep mounting up. In fact, it’s hard to keep count of all the horrific scenarios, which could be played out at any moment in time.

The country is belly-up bankrupt at the hands of our leading economists in the Federal Reserve Corporation. American people, self-included, are beyond poor even though they continue to pretend otherwise. The U.S., with all of its citizens, is poised to crash, and this one will make the 1930’s look like a birthday party. If you have a mortgage, kiss your house and private property good-bye.

The “pandemic” is looming, so we are told day and night with TV, movies, wildlife and medical experts, etc., and we now have legislation passed to deal specifically with this pandemic. Strange how they know for a fact that it’s coming, and also have some sense of how many people are going to die, though they don’t know how (or if) “the virus” will mutate. It’s strange how this pandemic coincides with the globalists’ desire for massive global depopulation.

And then there is gas and oil. They want to limit our mobility, herd us into planned communities that provide instant local labor forces for local corporations, and at the same time gas prices rise to completely unaffordable levels. Interesting timing…

The Fox-Bush border deals have ushered into this nation another nation, another culture, another language, more diseases, more crime, and have forced the American tax payer to pick up the bill – all while the new nation demonstrates in our streets by the millions – demanding that those of European ancestry leave or be taken out. Are riots next? And then military intervention? And will that intervention be Mexican or American military – or “others” as “peacekeeping” forces? And could riots break out in multiple cities across the nation simultaneously, much like the demonstrations, perhaps ushering in a declaration of Martial Law?

And why was a Martial Law system set into stone over the last several presidencies, followed by 911, the Department of Homeland Security, the militarizing of FEMA, national Citizen Corp groups, Community Oriented Policing Services (C.O.P.S.), the militarized training of city police departments and S.W.A.T. teams, privately trained armies for hire, and the cross-training of foreign armies with American military which as we know, is also now a foreign-based military? Is there something that the American citizenry should know about things to come? And exactly why is it that our military men and women never come home from overseas when all this so-called danger exists on American soil? Why are our homeland military bases being systematically closed all across the nation, while new and improved bases are built with our tax dollars on foreign soil? When did the American military become global defense forces and not homeland defense forces? Shall we ask the State Department and John Bolton? And why are we operating under Admiralty Law and a 200-year-old state of emergency?

Why are American children, new mothers, seniors, the incarcerated, our military men and women, and foster care children routinely drugged by force? Why did health care professionals murder Terri Schiavo, and why was her murder publicized for the entire world to see? Why are drugs of every make and measure advertised on all media outlets 24-hours a day? Can you say New Freedom Initiative on Mental Health and it’s marriage to big pharma? Can you say Model State Emergency Health Powers Act? Can you say mass drugging and eugenics-based population reduction as per the Rockefeller Commission on Population and the American Future, which was presented to the world in 1972 (

Why has every public school in the United States been required to have emergency plans, which include quarantining and locking down children – whereby by-passing the authority of American parents? And why is the United Nations dictating all American public school curricula? And why, oh, why, does one of the most radical organizations in the United States of America – the National Education Association (NEA) – have a total and complete monopoly over our public education system and our children, and why are they listed on the Communist Party USA’s website under the Links/Education section?

Why, if one refuses the 2008 Real ID requirements, can one not have a bank account in the United States of America? Because of terror? Which “terror,” exactly, are we talking about? And who knows that it’s coming, and how do they know that it’s coming? And why sub-dermal chips when the American public really, really does not want to be chipped?

And why are radiological, chemical, and biological weapons made and stockpiled in the United States, and also sold to foreign nations, when our “leaders” state that other nations who have these weapons are “terrorists?” What exactly is “a terrorist?” Many of our “leaders” have stated that “patriots” and “constitutionalists” are “domestic terrorists.” And what about the use of all that depleted uranium, Agent Orange, and other weapons of mass and permanent illness? What about generations of sick American soldiers?

And then there is globalism. Who is helping Africa – the Sudan, Chad, or Uganda? Who helped Rwanda? And tell me, who is helping Iraq? If we are to think globally, as we are told in our schools, our faith-based churches, and on a daily basis by our “representatives,” then why has Africa suffered for decades – suffering that is beyond all comprehension? If globalism is so superior to our Republic, then why do our “representatives” continue to lie about its secret implementation into this nation, and why isn’t Africa (and why hasn’t Africa) been the primary goal and mission of our global governors and the United Nations?

And the same goes for Mexico. Knowing that Mexico has been under corrupt, thieving, and cruel dictatorships that have robbed the people of livings and dignity for centuries, where is the wonderful U.N., and why haven’t they helped the Mexican people to save their nation? Why, instead, did the globalists and the CFR decide to merge Mexico with the United States (and Canada), hide their intentions, and continue to do so? Can you say North American Community and the SPP?

And why is the U.N. making plans to disarm the American public? Is it because our “representatives” can’t or don’t have the nerve to try? And why, when all the above is looming like a plague over this nation – all this potential crisis – would they want to disarm the American public when, clearly, an armed public would be needed during times of imminent crisis? Could it be that crisis is highly planned for “other” reasons? Shall we ask the State Department, the CFR, and their hand-picked American leadership? On this note, I pray you are reading Dr. Edwin Vieira’s articles.

There is sense to be made. It’s not a difficult puzzle to solve or scenario to see. However, that would require monkeys to open their eyes, uncover their ears, and to speak. It would also require that “Off” buttons were pushed in order that the TV drug was disconnected from the TV addicts. It would require duty, effort, and a moral code – one in which truth was preferred over constant diversion, secret nation dismantling, and psychological and chemical entertainments and experiments.

The big picture is as clear as your giant $3,000 TV screens. It’s playing out in your neighborhoods, your schools, your churches, your hospitals, your county commissions, and in all state capitols. It’s in your places of employment, in the additives in your food and water, and in your deed restricted communities. It’s in your non-profit agencies, your business partnerships, your gas stations, your Federal Reserve notes, your insurance companies, and your Social Security system. It’s in your farms and ranches, your forests, your wilderness areas, your parks, your watershed systems, your Great Lakes, rivers, streams, and water wells.

It’s in your courtrooms operating under Admiralty and international laws. It’s in your vaccinations, your senior service organizations, your daycare centers, your prisons, and your military branches. It’s called global governance and the conquering of the United States. It’s planned and it’s happening. It’s in your medicine cabinets, your refrigerators, your pantries, and running from your facets. The global governors and their missions have arrived in your homes. The question is did you invite them in by turning a blind eye and a deaf ear? Does denial ease the pain of your guilt? Do your children deserve life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? It’s your call, America. It’s your future.

Until we’re all on the same page – fully understanding the same global system and missions – we are divisible by ignorance, gullible as “mental incompetents,” and vulnerable as all history’s landless victims of Martial Law. We need to educate every American right now. Contact Americans for Constitutional Enforcement (A.C.E.) “right now” at, and ask to receive an information packet. Every community - large, small, and rural - needs to begin community education programs that will, in a coordinated method, get us all on the same page. It’s going to take all of us to save our sovereignty and our Constitution – all of us. There is no other way. The only power we have is in our great numbers and in our indivisibility. It’s our only chance.

The New York Times did, “great harm to America,” said President Bush blasting the Times a day after the House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King said that the Times committed treason and should face criminal prosecution. Will this just blow over and be forgotten like all the other crimes committed against this one and only peoples republic?

The New York Times and soon others revealed the top secret program of follow-the-money which in the past has led to real accomplishments, including the arrest of Hanbali who master-minded the Bali bombing that murdered 202 people. This is the second time the Times has revealed a top secret terror tracking program despite White House pleadings. Our Home Land Security chairman, Mr. King, sent a letter to Alberto Gonzales urging him to launch a criminal investigation. King stated their activities were shameful and urged that the Times were aiding the cause of our enemies. That was not the right way to initiate an investigation.

Bill O’Reilly stated that the Times used its power and constitutional protection to work against the administration’s anti-terror strategies. Can you find the errors of thought in that statement? O’Rielly went on to say, “There is no question that some media and politicians are playing politics with the security of the American people.” Does the liberty guaranteed by the Constitution mean unrestrained license?

“Under (State and Federal Constitutions) the liberty of the citizen is guaranteed. But the liberty thus secured does not mean the unrestrained license of an unbridled will.” Rugg, Com. V. Karvonen, 219 Mass.30.
What can we do if an enemy sets up a “press” to manipulate elections, news, and other information in order to promote its ends or to subvert our way of life? Shouldn’t that be considered treason or sedition? Whenever the “press” or other media over-steps the bounds of their job which is to offer news, information, and entertainment to the public, it becomes an un-elected power instead of a service. Whenever the press wields un-elected power, it transforms into, as they like to call themselves, the “Fourth Estate.” No longer delivering news, they now illegally shape events at every level of life. It appears their conduct and language is directed against the public order, safety, and tranquility of state. This constant ridicule and stirring up of disorder of the very country in which they claim to serve, is the meaning of sedition. Sedition is a crime. Not only is there enough evidence of sedition to bring indictments, but there could also be a good case for conspiracy and treason.

Freedom of an honest press is a problem for our government, as it should be. The Bill of Rights tell us that Congress shall make no law, but if we read down a little further we find how to discipline the Fourth Estate in Article V.

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury…”
Article VI declares, “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury…” We, the private citizens of these United States are the Grand Juries and Trial Juries. We can indict and if warranted, look into any possible crime and convict any law breakers including the media’s seditious abuse as the Fourth Estate. Remember, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”

If we shirk our responsibilities in preserving our freedoms we stand to lose them. Failure on our part amounts to a waiver of our rights and liberties. Treason is not only levying war against the United States but also giving aid to the enemies of freedom and/or comfort. Looking at the Constitution for the United States in sections 3 through 7, we find this same principal.

“Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but....” (Emphasis mine)
If we do not read the Constitution for ourselves, the media and our corrupt politicians stop right there just before “but” leading us to believe it’s the end of that sentence. However, if we just read on a little further it is made very clear.

“…but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, trial, and punishment, according to law.”
Who indicts? Who convicts? We do! We do! The Grand Jury indicts, and the Trial or Petit Jury convicts! The power to indict and convict was never trusted to the government but rather was retained by the people. Not only can we take care of the treasons committed by the Fourth Estate but we can take care of the loose ends in all branches of our government, both State and Federal. The Grand Jury has the authority to investigate any corruption at a petition of grievances or even on their own suspicions.

Chief Justice Chase said, “You must not be satisfied by acting upon such cases only as may be brought before you by the district attorney, or by members of your body to whom knowledge of particular offences may have come. Your authority and your duty go much further. You may and you should, summon before you, officers of the government, and others whom you may have reason to believe possess information proper for your action, and examine them fully.”

As I was listening to a talk show caller on the Rush Limbaugh show demanding that people should be sent to prison over the Times treason, I heard an interesting reply. Rush said not to hope or look for anyone going to prison as it will not happen. More than likely Rush is right once again. I intently listened for helpful solutions but heard none. If you want helpful solutions, e-mail me for a Grand Jury Creed and together we can spread the word and help put an end to the Fourth Estate.

The university used to be a word that carried in its root the idea that there is a unified world view that needed to be imparted to students if they were to get their money's worth.

But the masters of the university no longer believe that. They have rejected the notion that the institution exists to teach ethical character and independent thinking. The new paradigm is taken from the German university model designed to let professors do whatever they want. Teaching can be left to graduate students who are dependent for their job tickets on these same unaccountable professors.

Why no guidance? Why no insistence on teaching per the old paradigm? The modern intellectual consensus is that there is nothing certain that can be known (except that they are certain that nothing is certain). Since there is no way to say what is right or wrong, professors should be free to do whatever they want.

This view in the humanities fields is known as multiculturalism. Multiculturalism teaches that all cultures are equally worthy except for traditional western Christian civilization. That, as we all are supposed to know, is bad.

There are very deadly consequences that flow out of this point of view. If western civilization is bad, then any attack on it, no matter how outrageous or lethal, is not the fault of the attacker. Actually, we Westerners have it coming.

This is how we sink to the blame-the-victim perversity that has taken nearly total control of America’s universities. This also helps us understand why those in academe who celebrated the carnage on 9/11 and lionized the murderers were never fired from their cushy university jobs. Of course those professors have a right to say what they want, but those who pay their salaries also have a right not to be forced to pay them to say it.

While "blaming the victim" is not in vogue in most non-western schools, it is all the rage in our contemporary American schools.

Zero tolerance is rooted in multiculturalism and blame-the-victim thinking. When the ordinary actions of an elementary school kid drawing a soldier with a rifle or using his fingers to represent a gun -- gets him suspended from school, we have just about hit bottom.

Jim Nelson Black is the author of Freefall of the American University. He describes how multiculturalism is at work in much the same way Big Brother operated in George Orwell’s 1984. When a people have their history concealed from them long enough, there is eventually no one left who can remember what really happened. Then reality is only what we hear from Big Brother (aka, the PC Speech Police who enforce multiculturalism).

We are at the point now that bedwetting is taken for the highest level of argumentation -- critical thinking and knowledge of history having all but disappeared. Bringing up an obvious fact, such as Muslim Jihadis quote from the Koran to justify their insatiable desire to murder their way to worldwide dominion, is considered offensive. Anything offensive is not permitted. Certainly no one will be allowed to call Islamic Jihadism evil. Calling something evil might lead some people to want to defend themselves from it.

That the Jihadi’s reading of the Koran has fueled 1400 years worth of murder and oppression is not considered to be relevant. Jihad is not the problem. The West is. Remember. Blame the victim. The victim has it coming.

Black makes a compelling argument that if you do not want your children and grandchildren to be intellectually and morally neutered, then great care is needed in choosing a university. And even with that, one is not finished with due diligence. Keep talking to your students. It would also be a good idea to subscribe to the campus newspaper. If there is more than one on campus, make sure you get the one the administration likes. That’s where the nutcases write.

If we fail to pay attention to, and ultimately take control of, American universities, our students will be graduating with a hatred of the very culture and Constitution that has produced and fostered the richest and freest country in the world. Students influenced by the professors of Big Brother U. will eagerly vote their freedoms away.

One of the signs that the multiculturalists have won will be the illegalizing of self defense. As in England now, people defending themselves against criminal attack will be the ones going to jail.

My interview with Black can be heard by going to the Live Fire archives at Freefall of the American University has many excellent suggestions for protecting students from professors and university administrators. Freefall is as important for home defense as is a good gun.
