"'One World One Dream' fully reflects the essence and the universal values of the Olympic spirit -- Unity, Friendship, Progress, Harmony, Participation and Dream.'"[1] Beijing 2008

"The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games emblem.... is filled with Beijing's hospitality and hopes.... The color 'red' is intensively used in the emblem, pushing the passion up to a new level.... Red is the color of the Sun and the Holy Fire, representing life and a new beginning."[2] The Olympic Emblem

[Meanwhile] "...a number of Chinese House Church Pastors were forced to sign a written agreement that they would not participate in religious services while the Olympic Games are taking place...."[3] China Aid

Like its familiar Yin Yang symbol, China's Olympics is full of contrasts. The opening ceremony seemed flawless but raised questions about integrity. It showed a "dazzling chain of massive fireworks," which turned out to be "mostly computer-generated."[4] We heard a nine-year old girl singing an amazing solo, but a more beautiful girl (with a less perfect voice) stood in her place, mimed the words and received the applause of 91,000 spectators.[5]

The next days prompted more questions. Were the vast Olympic construction projects worth evicting more than a million people? Was winning a gold medal worth lying about the age of a gifted gymnast? Did banishing Christian leaders and their families from Beijing before the Olympics fit the vision of a "One World" union?

Communism has always clashed with truth, freedom and integrity, and China's choices illustrate the point. Only by unthinkable compromise can the "free world" find "common ground" with Communist totalitarianism. Yet, countless clues suggest that its masses are now marching blindly toward an illusion of unity, following leaders who readily trade conviction for compromise.

For example, President Bush knew well that a visit to a government controlled church would look like an endorsement of the Three Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM). Yet, instead of meeting with faithful pastors who viewed him as a Christian brother, Bush supported a Communist propaganda scheme. Their disappointment is reflected in this letter:

"When the news came that President Bush will visit Kuanjie Protestant Church of the TSPM... it caused widespread concern among the house churches. They believe that the Chinese rulers have been consistently cheating and ridiculing their guests from overseas by winning popularity through misleading the public and by mixing the false with the genuine. Through these means, they intensify their persecution..... President Bush’s visit to the TSPM...will certainly be utilized by the Chinese Communists."[6]

China has called for a "New Beginning," but what does that mean? What changes can we expect? Consider these clues:.


Though human greatness is no proof of goodness, the Olympics did demonstrate China's technological advance. It warned us that we can no longer trust our eyes to separate reality from fantasy. Technology has become an indoctrination tool that blurs the line between fact and fascinating images.

More sobering are the evolving surveillance networks made possible by today's sophisticated technology. While Communism has always relied on spies and treachery, America is making it more effective. As Ellen Bork wrote in "Don't forget about China's dissidents,"

"The world isn't just sending athletes to the Olympics, but surveillance technology that will help the government keep tabs on its people for years to come. American companies alone have sold China technology that invisibly copies computer hard drives, reads encrypted text and performs facial recognition analysis on surveillance video."[7]

China is now testing its latest tools. No doubt Washington, too, is watching the people's response.

"At least 20,000 police surveillance cameras are being installed along streets here in southern China and will soon be guided by sophisticated computer software from an American-financed company to recognize automatically the faces of police suspects and detect unusual activity.

"...spreading across Shenzhen, a city of 12.4 million people, residency cards fitted with powerful computer chips programmed by the same company will be issued to most citizens. Data on the chip will include... work history, educational background, religion, ethnicity, police record, medical insurance status.... Even personal reproductive history will be included, for enforcement of China’s controversial 'one child' policy. Plans are being studied to add credit histories, subway travel payments and small purchases charged to the card.... 'If they do not get the permanent card, they cannot live here, they cannot get government benefits, and that is a way for the government to control the population in the future.'"[8]

Since the start of Mao's revolutionary reign, China has tried to track the attitudes and loyalties of its people. A personal record, called a Dang'an would follow each person through life. Those found to resist Communist indoctrination faced re-education, which included torture, deprivation and often death.[9]

Apparently the Dang'an still includes "appraisals by supervisors and peers, academic reports from primary school to university, professional credentials, any criminal convictions or administrative penalties, club/society memberships, employment records and political history (such as Youth League and CPC membership and assessments)."[9] And that's not all.

"Alterations may only be carried out by special cadres, and when combined with the custom of guanxi the result is that 'Personal revenge, false entries and special favors are thus part of the game.'... 'A black mark against you – a bad school report, a disagreement with your boss, a visit to a psychiatrist – all can travel with you for the rest of your life…'"[9]

China isn't the only country to monitor its citizens. Like Mao, Nazi Germany used terrifying spy networks to force all to submit. So did Stalin. I first realized that the United Nations called for universal monitoring when reading new documents on my flight home from its 1996 UN Conference on Human Settlements in Istanbul. By then, America was already building its cradle to grave system of digital tracking that includes "mental health" -- i.e. thinking and acting in accordance with global standards for the "One World" community.[10]


A week before the Beijing Olympics, Chinese President Hu Jintao told foreign correspondents in Beijing that "the spiritual legacy [of the Olympics] will last much longer and be even more valuable" than its "material legacy."[11]

What did he mean by "spiritual"? I did a quick search on the Beijing Olympics website and found numerous references both to "spiritual" (as in "spiritual ideas of understanding, friendship, and equality") and to "spirit." The latter included cultural spirit, fighting spirit, sporting spirit, Olympic spirit, Chinese spirit and vibrant spirit. Nothing "religious" there! Focused on feelings and aspirations rather than facts and truth, these secular spirits fit right into Communist ideology.

So does China's religious heritage. Its subjective blend of Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and superstition is largely a matter of social values, personal comfort, and ancestral devotion. It's based more on feelings (of loyalty and honor) than on facts. And the Yin Yang, China's Taoist symbol of unity in diversity, serves as a reminder that life is full of pain as well as pleasure -- and that both can be used to manipulate our minds.

Aldous Huxley shared some interesting observations about oneness in a book he wrote after Hitler temporarily shattered the socialist vision of an evolving human community. In Brave New World Revisited, he wrote,

"The future dictator’s subjects will be painlessly regimented by a corps of highly trained social engineers.... Their behavior is determined, not by knowledge and reason, but by feelings and unconscious drives.... To be successful a propagandist must learn how to manipulate these instincts and emotions.... Whoever wishes to win over the masses must know the key that will open the door of their hearts.'... [Remember Rick Warren's community surveys]

"It is by manipulating 'hidden forces' that the advertising experts induce us to buy their wares—a toothpaste, a brand of cigarettes, a political candidate. ... 'All effective propaganda,' Hitler wrote, 'must be confined to a few bare necessities and then must be expressed in a few stereotyped formulas.' These stereotyped formulas must be constantly repeated, for 'only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea upon the memory of a crowd.'"[12]

Now, almost fifty years later, many of Huxley's warnings have become reality. Individual thinking gives way to collective thinking under the skilled guidance of trained facilitators (in churches as well as governments) whose sophisticated strategies have been tested and proven in psycho-social laboratories -- first by Communist dictators and later in the "free" world. Their guinea pigs were first our military troops, then the poor. Now their tentacles are reaching out to everyone... especially through schools and large churches. The transformation is universal, and woe to those who resist!


The answer is simple: any group classified as "an evil cult." That includes thousands of unregistered Chinese House Churches.

Communism has never tolerated Biblical Christianity. Nor did Hitler. To manage the German masses in the late 1930s, Hitler ordered all churches to hang his picture above their altars. Pastors who refused were replaced by Nazi puppets.

Like Nazi Germany, the Maoist regime in China determined to bring all "Christians" into the same government-controlled fold. It established the Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM), and banned independent churches. Christians had to choose whether to conform to TSPM rules or risk imprisonment, torture and death.

The Three Self (TSPM) ideals were designed to sound good: Self-governance, Self-support, and Self-propagation. But faithful Christians look to their Lord, not to Self, for guidance, support and propagation. They would refuse to trade faithfulness to God for any loyalty to State.

The TSPM pastors would be trained at government sanctioned seminaries, and its registered members would be taught according to government guidelines. One of those rules has outlawed our Biblical hope in eternal life with Christ. Others are listed here:

* The Communist Party decides what can be preached.

* Preaching should focus on the social rules and the social benefits of Christianity.

* Preaching outside government monitored TSPM church buildings is forbidden.

* Evangelizing is forbidden.

* Printing bibles [without government permission] is forbidden.

* Giving bibles to children or teenagers is forbidden.

* Teachers [children, soldiers and government officials] cannot be Christian....[13]

When Christians face persecution, God gives them strength to endure the pain and to demonstrate His love to others. That's why Communism couldn't wipe out God's underground Church. It simply grew stronger. Some estimate that the number of Christians in house churches now surpasses 100 million. Yet, repression continues.

Dictators know that early prevention serves their goals better than persecution. So Nazi Germany established the Hitler Youth -- copying Stalin's effective mind-changing strategies. China did the same. Today, its Olympics includes a youth camp. Ponder its invitation to future leaders:

"'Youth Create the Future.'...In the spirit of harmony, compassion, creativity and learning through experience, the Camp has already invited participants nominated by more than 200 National Olympic Committees.... The goal is to promote.... the ideals of world peace, cooperation and development...."[14]

Illusions may sound enticing, but they can't change reality. God's Word stands forever, and man can do nothing to cancel His eternal plans.

"Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?
The... rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, 'Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.'" Psalm 2:1-3

But in the midst of it all, God reigns! "Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him!" Psalm 2:12 For part one click below.

"The public does not fully understand the world into which it is going. Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision."[1] Henry Kissinger, a change agent within the International Olympic Committee

"We must commit ourselves to the work of imagining our common humanity... and of enacting civic rituals that resonate with the music of our ancestors."[2] Dr. Benjamin Ladner, speaking on "Solidarity" at the 1996 UN Conference on Human Settlements.

Ancient myths, human might, a massive marketing system!. These visible signs of the modern Olympics stir the imagination and draw the masses. They also hide the global politics and the cold-hearted pragmatism behind the scenes. For Olympic masters celebrate the strong and mighty, but they show little compassion for the poor and weak, whose homes are razed to build stadiums, beautify surroundings, impress visitors.

The history of the Olympics takes us back to about 776 B.C. -- the apparent birth of the original Greek games -- when superstitious mortals worshipped ancient gods on Mount Olympus. This extended family of promiscuous deities was ruled by Zeus and birthed by Gaea (Gaia), supposedly the mother goddess of all.

In that other-worldly realm, Zeus' oldest sister, Hestia, guarded the sacred flame on Mount Olympus. Meanwhile, in the real world, a sacred fire was lit on an altar to Zeus in front of his massive temple. At four-year intervals, nude athletes would compete for the victor's wreath, honor and material gain. But the light of those early games flickered out in AD 394 when Emperor Theodosius, apparently a Christian, could no longer condone such occult celebrations.

The Olympics were revived in 1896 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin. His humanist philosophy and love for myth were summarized by Sigmund Loland in his report on "Pierre de Coubertin's Ideology of Olympism:"

"These goals are underlined in what is seen as a very important aesthetic framework consisting of symbols, rituals and ceremonies. Whereas the Ancient Games were part of a cult to the honour of Zeus, a key goal in their modern version ought to be to worship human greatness and possibility."[3]

Loland then quotes Coubertin, giving us more revealing glimpses of the values behind the games:

“There are not two parts of a man... there are three -- body, soul and character: character is not formed by the mind, but primarily by the body."[3]

"The first essential characteristic of ancient and of modern Olympism is that of being a religion. By chiseling his body with exercise as a sculptor chisels a statue, the athlete of antiquity was 'honoring the gods'. In doing likewise the modern athlete exalts his country, his race, his flag. I therefore think I was right to recreate from the outset, around the renewed Olympism, a religious sentiment transformed and widened by the Internationalism and Democracy which distinguish the present age, but still the same as that which led the young Greeks, ambitious for the triumph of their muscles, to the foot of the altar of Zeus.”[3]

Coubertin's idealistic vision of international peace and spirituality is still the public theme of the Olympics. But his point on character-building has been tainted by the moral realities of the new millennium. While there are many admirable heroes among the athletes, their "village" is also known for its rampant use of free condoms, its obsession with the human body, its shameless delight in all kinds of promiscuous sex,[4] and its illicit use of drugs and steroids in former years.[5]

That's not surprising. Our culture is changing fast, and popular entertainment is racing to stay ahead of the trends it helped create. Like the mainstream media, the forces behind the Olympic vision have been reshaped by changing values, national interests, international politics, global economics, etc. And with the guidance and participation of globalist power-brokers such as Henry Kissinger -- who was rewarded with the title, "Honour Member," by the Olympic Committee -- its global networks will surely increase.[6]

In fact, the Olympics have always been entangled with contrary goals and tactics. The most blatant demonstration of such political compromise was pushed by Hitler in Berlin:

"...in 1936, Adolph Hitler had co-opted the Games... making them a showcase for the Nazis' hollow facade of a new and better Germany."[7]

"Creating impressions of grandeur and potency was one of Hitler's foremost talents.... The Games would launch with lavish and spectacular ceremonies.... The sacred flame would ignite from the focused rays of the sun in the ruins of ancient Olympia, then be borne to Berlin by a relay of runners.... By this transfer of fire from the oldest Olympic site to the newest, the past would touch the present. A spirit would move across the ages...."

"The glorious scheme was set in motion amid the tumbled stones of Olympia. ... A 'high priestess' attended by 13 Greek girls in classical costume held a wand above a sun-focusing mirror supplied by the Zeiss company, Germany's famed optical firm. The wand burst into flame and was carried to an altar. ... A German delegate declaimed: 'O fire, lit in an ancient and sacred place, begin your race....'"[8]

Hitler's fascination with ancient myth and mysticism fueled the fervor behind this ritual and prompted its inclusion in future ceremonies. According to the official website of the 2002 Olympics,

"The Olympic Flame first became a tradition of the modern Olympics at the 1928 Amsterdam Games.... A torch relay has been held, in one form or another, at every Olympics since. The flame is first lighted during a ceremony at the site of the ancient Olympic stadium in Olympia. Women dressed in robes similar to those worn by the ancient Greeks use a curved mirror to light the torch naturally with the sun’s rays.... The high priestess then presents the torch to the first relay runner."[9]

The lighting of the torch -- and later the cauldron -- sets the stage for pagan celebrations befitting the grandiose visions of global pacesetters. They know that images and suggestions, rather than facts or truth, will best change values and establish symbols that serve the global agenda.

So does the influential spiritual leader, James Morton. This former "Dean" (pastor) of New York's infamous Cathedral of St. John the Divine, has been a guiding member of the interfaith Temple of Understanding. Speaking on Solidarity at the 1996 UN Conference on Human Settlements in Istanbul, he offered his pathway to global peace. Notice how well it matches the Olympic vision:

"What's needed is ...something analogous to the ancient acropolis, where today's diversity of national and ethnic customs and religious traditions can be celebrated and upheld for the enrichment of everybody....The new acropolises will... provide opportunity for sacred expression needed to bind the people of the planet into a viable, meaningful, and sustainable solidarity."[2]

The new acropolis is here! It's making a difference! For whenever groups of people tune their hearts to a shared experience, their personal values tend to change and blend -- be it ever so slightly each time. Change agents in churches as well as in government, community organizations, the UN, or the Olympic Committee are counting on it! Whether true or false, enticing stories and visual images can plant transformational suggestions in the collective mind.

We see the results in today's growing consensus -- the common perceptions that it's okay to love and celebrate gods and rituals that reigned in ancient times. Such idols and practices are now considered good, not bad. And woe to Christian children or teens who dare to argue against that among their peers and teachers.

Genuine unity comes through Jesus Christ, not myth, marketing, or the human imagination. Only He can build in us the kind of character that can withstand all the temptations to cheat, lie and compromise the truth. Only His light can shut out the false light of seductive illusions and misleading visions.

"Beware," He warns us, "lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." Colossians 2:6-9

But only a few are likely to listen. As Dr. Stanley Monteith so wisely said, "...reality is usually scoffed at and illusion is usually king, but in the battle for the survival of Western civilization it will be reality and not illusion or delusion that will determine what the future will bring."[10]

Ike Nears Texas: ‘Now Is The Time For Prayers’

Only the godless media of a godless nation of godless people devoid of any knowledge of the changeless Eternal God could deliver such a conventionally self-serving statement, a statement typical of a nation having a form of godliness, but denying the power of the almighty, all knowing, and all-seeing God of the universe.

The Apostle Paul wrote of just such a time as exists in this nation today, a time when the people would be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, uncontrollable, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, and lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. In view of the fact that fifty million innocent babies have been murdered intentionally with premeditation and in the most heinous ways I would add murderers to that list, which of course only highlights Paul’s offering of “being without natural affection”.

There does not exist a more apt description than this of the nature of the United States today, it is a nation that consists, collectively, of a people led away from God by divers lusts, it is an ever-learning acculturation of those who are never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. It is in fact a nation of people who resist the truth, an irreverent fellowship of men of corrupt mind and reprobate faith. We are a people who turn to a righteous God only when it is selfishly expedient or when it suits our egotistical purposes to do so. Such disdain and disregard for the God who gives us breath and who’s very Spirit and power animates us and sustains the beating of our hearts will certainly have its consequences and we are seeing such in this country at an ever accelerating pace.

The United States has crossed a great divide and is now on a dizzying slide downward through an ever-quickening succession of events, both of the cosmos and of manmade induction, which are stepping this nation toward a now inevitable time of a complete and climatic destruction. Prayers from an apostate people for deliverance from catastrophic events current and future will not be heard, in the parlance of the Bible it is a time for sackcloth and ashes.


Those who believe that there is hope for a secular deliverance of this country from an increasingly inescapable terminal destiny at the hand of Almighty God or that the government or its leaders possess the answers to the nearly total social and spiritual unraveling of this commonwealth are barking up a wrong tree. Nowhere in the population of this nation or in the government or the institutions thereof exists a savior. Our Savior has come to this earth and gone and will return again, it is He that we should look to for deliverance. It is He who is the true Savior, and if the readers of this message have not accepted Him as such and taken advantage of His work upon the cross for the expiation of their sins past, present and future they most surely would do well to do so now. The fact is that any preacher, of honeyed words, who extols an innate goodness of man and salvation by any means other than through Jesus Christ, is a false messenger and is in service to the powers of darkness. God’s word says that none are righteous - no not one - and that the righteousness of man is as filthy rags in His sight.

My recent articles have been increasingly apocalyptic; I reject any thought that there is any hope that this country will be turned around by mortal men or by our terribly corrupt and fallible politicians. These, and those who extol their virtues, will do nothing other than hasten our fall. This has not been a popular message with some and several letters in response to my recent columns have been vitriolic and hate filled. I understand this, as the writers of these messages love the world either above God or in place of God.

I am grateful to those who carry my articles on their websites and pray for God’s blessings upon them. But, I know that there will come a time, and very soon, when my words will be blocked and censored. The prophets of old who were sent to deliver hard messages unto God’s people and to their kings and religious leaders were censored and imprisoned, and those who speak the truth today can expect the same circumstances as even now we see an unrighteous abridgement - by a fascistic government - of individual rights and liberties.

“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shall surely die; and thou gives him not warning, nor speaks to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.” (Ezekiel 3:18)

Clearly those in the ministry today who tickle the ears with new age doctrines - such as the goodness of man, a lack of evil, that man is divine and therefore can create his own spiritual destiny, Satan is an imaginary being and that there are many roads to salvation - have not read the above scripture. And if they have and have rejected it, or any other of God’s truths, they will stand and give an account for every lost soul that was in their charge.


The affects of hurricane IKE were tremendous. The cost of property damage has been estimated at one trillion dollars. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and hundreds of thousands people have been made homeless. Millions are without power and industries of all kinds have been either disrupted or destroyed and shut down altogether. Local economies have been all but wiped out and the U.S. economy already a tottering shambles held together by chewing gum and duct tape is being pushed to the edge. The dwindling number of middle- income taxpayers cannot continually bail out one area after another from the costs of major catastrophic events that now occur at a rate of nearly one upon another, and it is with a certainty that the major corporations that are virtually completely exempt from taxation are not going to contribute to any recovery as greed is the name of their game. The soon coming burden that the government will place upon the dwindling few will be crushing. And yet this is but the initial phase of the coming tribulation upon this nation. The apocalyptic natural events will continue, but that is not the whole of the story.

The economy of this nation is, for all intents, shot; fooled away by seeming half-wits. The government and the elites have striven mightily with lies, manipulation of the markets, and bailouts of failed financial institutions to wire together a wrecked economic infrastructure that has been made a disaster by their own hand. The stricken federally chartered housing finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - progeny’s of our totalitarian regime - have been absorbed by their maker and shaper and placed upon the backs of the people. A wrecked car in such a dismal shape as our economy would be declared a total loss and scrapped. I think that this is exactly the plan of those who pursue a one-world order. They endeavor powerfully and vigorously to scrap the dollar and negate our sovereignty in order that this nation might be coalesced with Canada and Mexico in a North American Union and then integrated into a new world order.


Who can know the evil that lurks in the minds of men? God knows and soon so shall we if we don’t already know.

A virtual Trojan horse of monumental proportions has been rolled across our borders. Such an event could not have been accomplished without the ignorance, apathy and complaisance of the people and the treasonous endeavors of the politicians who feed at trough of the corporate pirates who control the government and society with the monies that they have amassed by deceit, trickery and larceny beyond imagination. To be subject to these is the fate of a people who have no knowledge of Almighty God. This horse carried the seeds of an invasive and pernicious evil that will render this nation completely impotent and cause it to lie prostrate before its enemies.

Out of the horse poured predators, malcontents, criminals of all stripe, disease carriers, free loaders, mercenaries and subversives. Such have molested, raped and killed our children, disrupted and corrupted every facet of an amalgamate and orderly society, bankrupted our local governments and institutions, piled the people high with debt to sustain the invaders with perks beyond anything available to ordinary citizens, caused us to build an ever increasing number of prisons to incarcerate alien invaders who kill, violate and maim American citizens, and opened the country to the predations of clandestine enemy agents who have infiltrated via open borders and lax immigration policies and who are supported by enemy citadels that have been openly set up under the noses of the government and its security agencies in the guise of mosques and embassies..

The floods, the hurricanes, the tornadoes, the fires, the earthquakes and the manmade disasters presage the time of the end. Soon - very soon - our cities will be host to civil strife such has never been experienced in the history of this nation. A pestilence of violence will roll across the land, cities will burn and the carnage will be great. Our panicked fascist government will add to that carnage. The violence will exacerbate an already degraded situation and disease and famine will spread exponentially in the wake of the violence. There will be widespread panic brought about by the rolling and continuous collapse of services and social order. No person will be isolated from the effects of the collapse of order that will affect those both within and without the cities.

“The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him”
(Ezekiel 7:15)

When the nation has been sufficiently weakened by all of the foregoing an utter annihilation will fall upon the land and it will be made desolate by nuclear fire.

“In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 6:6-7)

Now before you start calling people who can video tape my arrest for your misconception of what I have said in the title, please read on.

Within the next few weeks you will be witness to the most highly insulting and desperately misleading political campaigns ever seen by American citizens. It will be that way because in order to sell the presumed candidates, campaign officials and party leaders will blitz this nation with more horse dung than has EVER been thrown through the fan blades before.

How is it that 280 million legal American citizens (out of 304 million people living within our borders) can only produce the two present pitiful representatives from the dominant parties? Simple answer? Because this whole process has been pre-ordained, programmed and the outcome sealed before the campaigns ever began. If there is the slightest possibility that the directed outcome does not follow the script, then the computerized voting machines will be required to do what they were designed to do. CHEAT.

The parties have shunned, vilified, embarrassed, threatened and followed through on their internal efforts to squelch all opposition. They have stacked the decks on who is a delegate and made real choice impossible. The party leaders (all of whom are directed by CFR links and “established” wise men in government and business) must do this to protect the “status quo” and allow the ultimate destiny of the United States to be fulfilled. That destiny is complete destruction and absolute allegiance to the monied elites. Freedom loving sovereign citizens are extinct. They just have not been taken out…yet.

Here is the short list of issues most of you already know all too well. O’Bama is a communist. He has been preached to for twenty years or so (depending on which version of his history you believe) in a God-less church “pastored” by a vicious hater of whites and traditional Americans.

He has traveled with extremists and terrorists. He is a seductive orator who will tax us into oblivion, promote a homosexual preferred culture, advance abortion on every level, nominate leftist supreme court justices, endorse international law in America, criminalize self-defense and firearms ownership, restrict or eliminate free air waves and publishing, work openly with “La Raza” (the Race) radicals in destabilizing what’s left of our southern border and branding Christian Patriots has domestic terrorists.

I can find not a single bit of information to recommend to you that Barack O’Bama has the credentials, moral character, history, birth records, experience or constitutional knowledge to hold the office of president. This nation and what is left of freedom is ABSOLUTELY doomed if this evil man and his minions are place in the Oval Office. I implore you to consider your alternatives. Do Not support or vote for this predator who feeds on freedom.

Likewise, there is a short list for the other candidate, John McCain. He is a RINO and a closet socialist. He is absolutely in agreement with the same illegal Mexican invasion crowd and shows no shame for his perverted anti-American position. McCain was a willing participant in the Keating Five Savings and Loan scandal and should have been prosecuted. He treated his ex-wife with no compassion during a critical illness and then walked out to pursue the beer heiress. He was a reckless pilot who retained flying status only because of his “father’s” rank, and according to some sources was less than an honorable prisoner of war. McCain earned strange “respect” from some politicians because of his renegade status challenging traditional republican positions while in the senate. His claim to fame is the abysmal campaign reform legislation and his great drinking buddies on the democratic side of the aisle. His name is not on the live birth roster at the US Naval base in Panama in 1936, and the hospital he claims he was born in was not built until 1942. He is an internationalist, a grudging minimal gun rights convert, and thinks he can live with true Christians only because he so desperately needs their vote. The Lord himself must be walking the back forty in Heaven, head in His hands, wondering what happened to America.

I choose Chuck Baldwin because he stands for everything these two morons can’t abide. Vote your conscience. Use the ballot box first.

There is no new ground here. If you want to read a real gem, take in Andrew Wallace’s current piece. This is part three of his clear and eloquent expose’ of the current American position and why we are where we are. Andrew has made the case. We must support his position, all of us, readers, writers, and Americans. He is my good friend and he has said all that can be recorded about our current condition. The reasons are clear. I wanted to convey to you in the simplest terms why we cannot ignore these two slick politicians. They shame us, our history, our patriots who fought, died, and believed in a Republican form of government and our Bill of Rights. They died for a concept that is alien to these two fanatics and they died for a nation that no longer exists. WE must bear the blame for our situation.

Our courts and police agencies are the other two legs of stability in our nation and they are on the express train to hell in terms of their false allegiances and programmed loyalties to traitors bent on enslaving us or destroying our ability to feed ourselves with safe foods, protect ourselves from those that would steal our way of life, and addict us to poison in the forms of pharmaceuticals and vaccines. A pandemic has been engineered to spread H5N1 thereby requiring us to receive a government mandated flu shot that is more deadly than the disease. Radical depopulation is the Bilderburg goal; H5N1 is one of the means. Our armed forces are being devastated by depleted uranium (tank and armor piercing rounds) on the battlefield, banks are on the razor edge of self-induced currency failure and the Godless/communistic/United Nations continues to rot in the city of New York. Could it get worse? Yes.

I still observe hundreds of thousands of Americans standing behind O’Bama and McCain, cheering like it’s the state championship game, all glassy eyed and sure that they are doing the most sacred American thing. That is, getting involved!! Promoting what is best for America, don’t you know. My God, how completely absurd they look and act. They are co-conspirators in the final destruction of America. Is there any hope?

Recently, I was a guest with Dr. Bill Deagle on his radio show. Over the past several months I have been quietly speaking with police officers at various levels and departments or agencies. I have been very careful NOT to place them in a position that they could be identified or harassed.
What came through was a vast list of standing orders and action units that are being funded and trained by Washington for use in this country for the near term. The results will be disastrous beyond description if these measures are implemented. They will turn the American people, who will by then finally be aware of their plight, into vengeful mobs. All in the name of peace and safety, many police officers will implement the Illuminati’s great master plan for the taming of America.

These efforts through funded law enforcement agencies will include:

• - Quick apprehension and process strategies. “Grab and go guys.”
• - Infield Apprehension Units—Using fed and local assault teams.
• - Anticipated Violence and Resistance Squads—take out patriots using 12 man “crash and grab” teams with full land and air assault assets.
• - Instant Roadblock and Urban Chokepoints—to isolate cities. Prefabricated on-road fortified and gated stop houses with road side detention facilities in military semi-trailers. Feld Kommando style.
• - Total Forfeiture Task Forces—to confiscate ALL desired personal assets (food stockpiles, weapons, ammunition, water storage)
• - The use of taped and computerized morphed “conversations” that create a crime using your own voice and rearranged words as evidence to justify immediate arrests and secret detention.
• - Dossiers already built on false charges that are ready to be used against targeted patriots/Christians/Constitutionalists and also used to obtain search or arrest warrants. Gestapo and SS tactics used here.

Tactical Team Commanders and Command Staff Executive Officers have restricted access to these and other military style police programs. They have non-disclosure policies with heavily compartmentalized plans “blue-sealed” except for top state and federal police commanders. Field units are preparing their men for instant response to a given area that is blanketed
for pick-up and detention or transportation of “suspects.”

Can you begin to comprehend the advanced efforts of our once proud peace officer fraternity?

The good news is that efforts by former police officers, “converted” special agents and troopers within active ranks and God bless ‘em rank and file police officers and sheriff’s deputies are getting the picture—and they don’t like it one bit. We will not know until the siren wails just how many in law enforcement will indeed serve and protect their jurisdictions against domestic enemies within government, but I believe a significant number will stand ready to disobey unlawful orders and encourage their fellow officers to do the same. I do believe that will happen. At that moment, the tide will turn. I pray that we can and will rely only on the ballot box in every elected position in America. Vote wisely, vote OUT traitors and vote IN patriots, especially on the local level.

The choices and the results of your civic duty are clear. To fail in this will leave the other box. That choice is a dead end game. Be very, VERY clear. We may be forced into that position, however; those results will give us only heartache and grief. Let’s do all that we can to change this nation correctly.

Follow Christ in all things. Do what is right regardless if people like you or not. Don't look for people's approval (love of the world) and, don’t give up or give in for sake of compromise……

"I told all four that there were going to be some times where we don't agree with each other. But that's OK. If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." Gov. George W. Bush (R-TX), President-elect, December 18, 2000

Fascism: A philosophy or system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong centralized government usually headed by a dictator, and often a policy of belligerent nationalism; oppressive or dictatorial control.

A little over a week ago, these united States of America took another gigantic step towards Fascism when the U.S. Department of Treasury and the unconstitutional, privately owned "Federal" Reserve" bailed out two more private corporations ostensibly to calm fears in the market:

"Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac play a central role in our housing finance system and must continue to do so in their current form as shareholder-owned companies," Paulson said in a statement. "Their support for the housing market is particularly important as we work through the current housing correction."[1]

This would be accomplished in a plan Il Duce would applaud:

"First, as a liquidity backstop, the plan includes a temporary increase in the line of credit the GSEs have with Treasury. Treasury would determine the terms and conditions for accessing the line of credit and the amount to be drawn," Paulson said. "Second, to ensure the GSEs have access to sufficient capital to continue to serve their mission, the plan includes temporary authority for Treasury to purchase equity in either of the two GSEs if needed."[1]

Rounding out the stringent economic control is 'a strong centralized government' awash in agencies with powers never intended when the U.S. Constitution was ratified:

"The ousted chief executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have the potential to exit with golden parachutes, but the government could cut the strings. The new regulatory agency that seized control of the mortgage-funding giants and forced out their chief executives Sunday has broad but untested power to prohibit severance payments. Under federal law, it could do so on a variety of grounds, including if it found that the former executives were responsible for the companies' financial troubles.

"We are working through the compensation issues and have nothing to say at this time," Federal Housing Finance Agency spokeswoman Corinne Russell said by e-mail yesterday."[2]

Compensation for CEOs who ran their corporations into the ground will be rewarded by a massive injection from the sweat off your back despite the rhetoric:

"The severance packages could be worth as much as $14.9 million for Richard F. Syron, the former Freddie Mac chairman and chief executive, and as much as $9.8 million for Daniel H. Mudd, the former Fannie Mae chief executive, said David M. Schmidt, a senior consultant for the executive pay consultancy James F. Reda & Associates."[2]

Is this good for America? Not according to some of the finest minds in this country who truly understand the danger of what just happened:

"In the latest example of financial market madness, the recent government “bailout” of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae has perversely resulted in a sharp rise in the value of the U.S. dollar. If the markets were functioning rationally, the transference of staggering new liabilities to the U.S. Treasury would have been immediately seen as catastrophic for the dollar. Instead the markets have ignored the obviously negative long-term implications and have remained fixated my worst fears, and increase the chances for a hyper-inflationary outcome....

"Had the government done the right thing and not guaranteed Freddie and Fannie debt, I believe we would now be experiencing an outright financial crisis. The dollar would be falling sharply along with real estate prices, the government has merely delayed the crisis. The borrowed time will cost us dearly, as the day of reckoning will now likely involve much steeper losses for our currency.

"The Freddie and Fannie takeover does nothing to address the underlying problems that forced the companies into bankruptcy in the first place. All of the bad mortgage debt still exists. In fact, based on this bailout, there will be trillions more in bad mortgages insured over the next few years. The only thing that has changed is how the losses will be distributed. Instead of falling solely on bond holders, who had chosen to invest in mortgage debt, they will now be dispersed among U.S. taxpayers and all holders of U.S. dollars, who made no such choices."[3]

The jackals feeding on the American people and the fruits of their labor do not care and neither does Congress. On September 28, 2004, I wrote yet another column warning Americans Congress would do nothing; many more were to follow. On March 17, 2005, Dr. Edwin Vieria, began writing his brilliant analysis on the coming financial meltdown and the only real solutions. And, still, Americans voted back in the same Congress to fix a problem they continue to ignore. Where was Congress ten days ago to stop this lunacy?

Why wasn't Nancy Pelosi standing on the House floor demanding her colleagues halt this latest bail out? Probably because her colleagues are holding paper from those two corporations and to deflect the blame from this House of Incompetents:

"According to the Center for Responsive Politics, 28 lawmakers had between $598,100 and $1.7 million of their own money invested in the two companies last year. Of them, 12 members of Congress owned between $60,800 and $246,700 of stock in the two companies, which is practically worthless now that the government has seized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to keep them afloat as more of their customers in 2007, worth between $537,400 and $1.5 million. (Lawmakers disclose their finances in ranges, annually, making it difficult to determine their assets' precise values.) Rep. Mary Bono (R-Calif.) held bonds in the companies worth between $126,050 and $365,000, making her investments in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae more valuable than those of any other member of congress.

"Four members of either the House Financial Services Committee or the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee were invested in these companies: Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.),who held $32,216 in bonds; Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), who held at least $2,002 in bonds; Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), with at least $2,002 in stocks; and Rep. Ron Klein (D-Fla.), who held at least $1,001 in bonds.

"Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who called the federal bailout "outrageous" (but necessary), also reported having up to $10,000 invested in the two companies--up to $9,000 worth in bonds and up to $1,000 worth of stocks."[4]

Just like the 151 members of Congress who directly benefit financially from the war in Iraq; click here. For that matter, where was Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Obama, aka Barack Dunham, and aka Barry Dunham or Juan McCain? Dr. Edwin Vieira comments:

"So far, whatever remedy the Administration, McCain, or Obama has proposed has presumed that the General Government in Washington and its pet banks in the Federal Reserve system must keep America's present hypertrophic financial bubble expanding indefinitely, or at least prevent it from significantly contracting in the near future. So they advocate such policies as "bail outs" of both private and public enterprises (Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac being the most prominent so far) and pitiful "stimulus packages" of some "free" cash for average Americans, all effected through the injection of new "liquidity" into the markets in the form of Federal Reserve's endless inflation of the supplies of currency and credit..

"....That candidates for the highest office in the land - not to mention the incumbent - would be making reform of the Federal Reserve System the central issue in the presidential campaign and the most important task to how the Federal Reserve operates; why it endangers America's economic, political and social stability; and what steps must be taken gradually and safely to return this country permanently to a constitutional monetary system based upon gold and silver, which will prevent public officials and bankers thereafter from redistributing wealth from society to special interest groups through manipulations of currency and credit.

"Unfortunately, that these events are not taking place proves that most top-ranking public officials and politicians are neither patriotic nor competent."[5]

The nonsense being fed to the American people by Obama and McCain is little better than sawdust blowing in the wind. Obama is a Marxist who wants to strip you of every last penny in your wallet, and McCain, in his own words, knows nothing about the economy; see short video. Experts who deal in the markets are finally uttering the dreaded word:

"The end result of the global economic slowdown may be the U.S. announcing national bankruptcy as the government cannot afford the bailouts that it promised and the market will not bail out the government, Martin Hennecke, senior manager of private clients at Tyche, told CNBC on Thursday. "We expect a depression in the United States. We expect a depression, very possibly, also in Europe," Hennecke said on "Worldwide Exchange."[6]

This toxic path of bailing out private corporations took a foot hold back in 1983 with Chrysler and the camel's backside is now in the crowded tent. It's odd, however, that Congress and the Department of Treasury pick and choose which private corporations they wish to keep from the frying pan. Two major industries, automobile and mortgage lending, got the big jolt, so why didn't Congress and the FED jump to save ENRON, one of the biggest energy concerns in America at the time? Actually, the 7th largest corporation with a market capitalization of nearly $60 billion dollars. Didn't those ENRON employees who were sold "buy our stock, it's solid!" by Ken Lay, matter to Congress when they lost everything - many at retirement age left with nothing? (See links below) Why wasn't ENRON "back stopped"?

The layoffs will continue while Congress votes to bring in another 550,000 cheap foreign workers! The economy will continue to stagnate because as the American people are squeezed to meet just basics like food, clothing and a roof over their heads, the less disposable income they have to inject into the economy. The "Ho, ho, ho kiss under the mistletoe" retailers won't see many gifts under their tree this year. Increasing numbers of Americans have lost faith in the system; for tens of millions, their credit is like the Kalahari during a bad rain year. Also, traditionally (no pun intended), the pink slips usually roll out in December. As bankruptcies were already up 29% in a 12-month period by August, how much will those strapped Americans drop to give retailers that all important boost at the end of the year?

A thousand more "economic stimulus packages" will do nothing; it's akin the emptying the ocean with a teaspoon. This past wave of foreclosures will birth new ones and Americans will continue to sink into quicksand while Obama and McCain blather on with their gibberish. Congress will continue spending when the people's purse is overdrawn $9.6 TRILLION dollars.

For those of you who might have missed Carolyn Lochhead's September 12, 2004, column, Speeches Ignore Impending U.S. Debt Disaster, you will see nothing has changed this election cycle with the two front runners and their VP picks as they ignore the warnings from four years ago.

"Laurence Kotlikoff, Economics Chairman at Boston University, who has written abundantly on this subject, offers up a shocking response on how to close a $51 trillion dollar fiscal gap: "To give you idea how big the problem is, you'd have to have an immediate and permanent 78 percent hike in the federal income tax." More than double the payroll tax, immediately and forever, from 15.3 percent of wages to nearly 32 percent; Raise income taxes by two thirds (roughly 78%), immediately and forever; Cut Social Security and Medicare benefits by 45 percent, immediately and forever;"[7]

I must repeat myself in hopes that new readers will grasp how dire the situation is: Every penny spent to bail out these private corporations has to be borrowed since there is no money in the treasury. How do you write a $100 million dollar check to Freddie and Fannie when your bank account is already overdrawn $9.6 TRILLION dollars? The hundreds of thousands of Americans who are the beneficiaries of these bail outs, mortgage freezing and other madness by Congress for votes, simply no longer care about the constitutional issues. They're desperate and want only to be saved.

What private corporation will be next? How about I start a corporation which sells diapers. I mean, the country can't do without them, just like we need automobiles and mortgage lenders. Officers of the Corporation follow my lead making stupid business decisions while paying ourselves a king's ranson in salary and over extending ourselves, until, uh, oh, we're in trouble. I call Helicopter Ben Bernanke and he bails out my company by stealing from you. See what I mean? At some point the whole thing blows just like a balloon with too much air.

Mega-billionaire, world government advocate, George Soros, is busy buying gold. Why? When he's not busy buying Democrats, his knowledge of financial markets is legendary; synopsis at bottom. If you are as concerned as you should be, I recommend you call Eric at El Dorado Gold and talk to him. Learn why gold is the only refuge as a hedge against the hyper inflation that can eat a country alive fast as a falling star. How safe is your 401(k)? Oh, yes, there are supposed to be safeguards in place. Are you sure? With all these corporations fudging their numbers until it's too late, Americans would do well to question now. What about pension plans? A very troubling post appeared on Le Metropole Cafe a few days ago:

"Bill - a friend of mines girlfriend works a N.Y. trading desk for Lehman - she tells my friend today that $8B has been evaporated from the employees pension fund and that the company has told office staff that an announcement will be forthcoming before the Asian markets open this Monday."[8]

I shudder to think this is true, but I suppose we'll find out soon enough. It appears others are also concerned about pension funds:

"Now we know. The giant black hole of derivatives at JPM is about to become the size of Jupiter. With the utter failure of Fannie and Freddie (a culmination of what I predicted 12 years ago) Fannie and Freddie’s massive derivatives portfolios can now be hidden from public scrutiny. These trillions of derivatives, which in likelihood have already failed, can now be whitewashed with the able assistance of the US taxpayer. Also the true values of their mortgage portfolios gets deep-sixed. This is no doubt the single largest financial failure in the history of the world. The Fed had every reason to previously discontinue M-3 reporting.

"Can you imagine what is about to happen to the dollar supply once this catastrophe starts getting paid for? The derivatives may now become hidden from view, but the inflationary implications will become VERY evident. Another ominous problem facing FNM and FRE is a collapse in their pension plans and retirement funds. Retirees and current employees holding FNM/FRE stock will get wiped out, however a pension fund collapse would mean open revolt. This is another side-bailout I see coming."[9]

The Graet 2008 Transfer of Wealth

Americans are confronted with what appears to be the worse economic situation since the Great Depression. What will history say about the U.S. credit crisis turned global financial crisis? At every turn investors are faced with new problems, new crises, and less than desirable solutions which include debt, deflation and a transfer of wealth.

With regard to debt, the American taxpayer has been made the lender of last resort for international bank Bear Stearns and now the two Government-sponsored Enterprises-GSEs, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. On top of the $29B for Bear Stearns, Fannie and Freddie’s debt of $5.4T has been effectively transferred to the balance sheet of the USA. This is equal to the entire publicly traded debt of the U.S. which is also the same as the total of America’s mortgage-related assets. In addition to personal debt, every American now has a financial responsibility for Bear Stearns and Fannie and Freddie.

We, the people, have saved the foreign investors such as China which owns $376B, Japan which owns $228B, South Korea which owns $65B, Taiwan which owns $55B, and Australia which owns $33B, from losing faith in America. It is the stockholders, both common and preferred, that have been given the raw end of the deal. While large financial institutions such as JP Morgan, which owns $1.2B of Freddie and Fannie stock, said a complete loss would only erase one or two months of profits, contrast this to smaller banks such as the Central Virginia Bank in Richmond which has $20M in shares of Freddie and Fannie. That type of loss will put them in the same kind of trouble as Lehman Brothers, not enough capitalization. There are 15 other banks that hold 10% or more of their capital in shares of Freddie and Fannie.

The Federal Accounting Standards Board is requiring more stringent standards for banks and savings and loans to maintain a certain amount of capital to protect against insolvency. Those rules are in the process of being changed to conform to international rules issued by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland which Congress has voted on. These rules which were only to pertain to international banks are now being applied to national banks.

Furthermore those in retirement who thought their money was safe—invested in the highest ranked bonds in the country are going to lose their dividends. Depending on the price they invested, they could have principal losses of up to 80 or 90% of their investment. Ouch.

The credit crunch began a year ago when the various investment banks both here and abroad stopped buying each others paper, a very uncommon practice between them. As a result of no liquidity for mortgage paper caused by their decision, we have the most serious slowdown in real estate in decades. The decision to not buy mortgage paper includes the sub-prime loans made to home buyers that had no down payment. To relate, I recently met a young Latino who is worried about her home. Five years ago she bought a $370,000 townhouse with $14,000 down. Her interest rate varies causing her monthly payment to jump from $2700 per month to $3500. She cleans houses for a living.

Freddie and Fannie decided they could make more money by buying subprime mortgage paper. Today there is an eleven month inventory of unsold homes. Higher interest rates as a result of the hidden clauses on floating interest rates have put many people in jeopardy of foreclosure. All of these problems have given the Federal Reserve the opportunity to seize total control of powers they did not oversee in order to protect our economy. Perhaps we should ask where the desire to put poor people into homes came from? It was part of the Bush Administration’s policy to conform to the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals unveiled in the year 2000

Exacerbating the credit crunch have been the historically high oil prices which have caused pain at the gas pumps and a weak dollar which has made imports more expensive. To counter high oil prices, Americans have drastically reduced how many miles they drive and a number of buying habits. In light of a tight job market and job losses in housing and the automotive industries, we are confronted with higher energy costs to heat and cool our homes, increased costs for food, and the inability to refinance mortgages. Basically the economy is now in deflation. When people stop spending, it moves from deflation to stagflation—no matter how cheap an item becomes, people can’t afford to buy. All this without knowing what the real fall out will be from the bailout of Freddie and Fannie.

The situation we are confronted with did not happen in the last few years, but began in 1913 when a group of cunningly deceitful legislators passed the Federal Reserve Act on December 24 at 11:45 p.m., after those who were opposed went home for Christmas. The entire financial system of the U.S. was transferred from Congress to a private corporation that is NOT accountable to Congress. They create and destroy the business cycle by various means: raising and lowering interest rates. The government of the United States is in bondage to a group of individuals who own the Federal Reserve. The reason why the American people cannot forgive themselves the interest on our debt is because we do not owe it to ourselves we owe it to the Federal Reserve! Every single time since then that the Federal Reserve Act was amended, over 195 times, the Federal Reserve gathered more power over various aspects of our economy. However, they are in the final throes of stripping America of any remaining vestiges of sovereignty as has been laid out in the Treasury “Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory System.”

The Blueprint was written under the watchful eye of one of America’s most successful international bankers, former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson, who is now our illustrious Treasury Secretary. Is this not a case of the fox in the chicken coup? Long time investment sage Marty Whitman commented on his actions, “Paulson thinks he is in Russia and is not giving any value to stockholders. It is outrageous that the Treasury Secretary is not giving any consideration to the shareholders.”

The Blueprint calls for key components of our financial system, not currently under Federal Reserve control, to be transferred to them. In order to do this, a number of changes will be necessary which Congress will have to approve. First, it recommends changing the banking charter to include all financial institutions, thus effectively transferring control over “national banks, federal savings associations, and federal [and state] credit union charters.” For your information, Washington Mutual is a savings and loan while Lehman Brothers is and Bear Stearns was an international bank. The Fed is to be given authority over the U.S. Payment and Settlement System thereby controlling the settlement process for securities. It will be given the role of Market Stability Regulator and it will have total control over the market. The Blueprint provides for the entire mortgage system of the U.S. to be federalized and to be under the control of the Mortgage Origination Commission. The Federal Reserve will be part of the Commission. Additionally the Federal Reserve will be given a say in the insurance industry which will be federalized and a new Office of Insurance Oversight will oversee its activities. The Federal Reserve will have a place on the Insurance Oversight commission.

By the time Congress votes on the Blueprint, there will be so many reasons for them to transfer the last vestiges of our financial sovereignty to the Federal Reserve that they will not even have to read the prepared legislation. So far, we have the bailout of Freddie and Fannie by giving Treasury a blank check to act; the Federal Reserve worked all weekend to find a buyer to Lehman, another international bank, their next project might be to rescue Washington Mutual, a savings and loan, and the Fed has been given initial powers to act as the Market Stability Regulator. The only component that is missing is the demise of an insurance company, AIG anyone?

For the record, at the heart of the Blueprint is changing our financial/banking and securities regulatory system from a national system to an international system to bring America into the world governmental system that functions above the nation-states. I have maintained that in order to get Congress to go along, we would have to have a huge problem which would allow Congress to be convinced that they need to act, however, the truth of the matter is they no longer have the power they once had because the majority has been transferred to the Federal Reserve.

History will determine how the final stage was set but I believe it started in 2000 with the Crash of the Nasdaq. Who would have ever thought that a stock would drop 90% in value? About $7T vanished from the balance sheets of investors. But we did not have to worry, as a result of 9/11, the Federal Reserve started to reduce interest rates to 45 year lows to get Americans to support the economy by buying the dream home. We bit the bait. It was the Roaring 20s all over again. At one point in the housing boom, one out of four jobs was created by the housing industry. No one asked if they could afford the debt, they only asked if they could afford the payment: a big difference. They did not ask the right questions about their mortgage because the mortgage industry was not required to disclose to them, when it should have. At one time the mortgage industry was run on honesty and integrity, but that changed too and people have been caught in a terrible snare.

The Bailout of Freddie and Fannie provide us with the latest excitement in the diabolical saga of the raping, robbing, and pillaging of America. Interestingly enough it took place 13 months after the beginning of the credit crunch. Lastly, I have maintained since the beginning of the credit crunch last August that it was planned and managed destruction in order to accomplish the final transfer of America’s financial sovereignty. All of the above only confirms my original suspicion. Sadly, only the strong will survive, only those who did not use their house as a checking account will survive, only those who turn to the Creator of the Universe, the Lord God who created heaven and earth, and His Son, Jesus, will survive in the midst of the Great 2008 Transfer of Wealth.
