What Our Forefathers With So Much Difficulty Secured

By Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst

WASH—Nov 27—KIN--“What our forefathers with so much difficulty secured, do not basely relinquish.” These are the words translated from Latin that are etched on the gravestone of William Bradford, governor of the Massachusetts Colony, co-writer of the Mayflower Compact, inventor of the free market system, and my grandfather 14 generations removed. Bradford is often remembered for being one of the Pilgrims who survived their first winter in the new America. He is one of the brave men and women who endured such great hardship to help make this nation what it is—a beacon of religious and economic freedom blessed in covenant with God. And unto his death his gravestone warns us not to basely relinquish these liberties.

The Mayflower Compact is a covenant with God, dedicating this land now called the United States of America to the advancement of the Christian faith. The Compact declares, “IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honor of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia;

“Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience.” With these words, 41 men agreed to govern in submission and obedience to God.

As anyone can see, these were men and women dedicated to establishing a land for the advancement of the Christian faith and they set themselves apart bringing all they had and all they claimed in covenant with God. And it was not just for their time on earth, but as what was written on Bradford’s grave, the covenant and their subsequent sacrifices were not to be relinquished. As America embraces socialism and human secularism, let us remember that only 41 men began a nation with their signatures. There are more of us today that are citizens of the Kingdom of God, and we can reclaim what our forefathers with so much difficulty secured. Jesus said in Matthew 19:26, “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Let us give thanks.

Death Clouds Over a Lost Nation!

"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."

I John 2:18
"I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive."

John 5:43
"Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Baalam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Co'-re. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: carried about of winds, trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever."

Jude 11-13
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look with great shock and amazement at the United States of America as a nation in the dramatic arena of adverse change! Many and countless changes, some visible and many invisible, are now taking place in our nation since we now have a new President-elect. The entire campaign of Barack Hussein Obama, the junior Senator from Illinois, consisted of one word: change. Now that he is soon to be the President of the United States, we will see the true horrors of change. The simple word change has no guarantee of good contained in the six letters that make up the word. At face value it simply means: give me anything other than what I now have. A study of history will quickly reveal that Adolf Hitler and others of his ilk who were first elected to office and shortly after became dictators were also first elected to office on a campaign of one word and that word was change.

In ancient Israel, God's people made the same grave error. They demanded change. They entered into the spiritual auditorium of blind change, and it eventually destroyed them and brought them into Babylonian slavery and captivity. In Jeremiah 2:11-13 we read of this as follows: "Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? But my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."

Satan thrives in the arena of ambiguous change. If Satan can keep people in a constant state of change, they never arrive at anything. Nothing is conclusive, there are no reference points, and eventually all indices of truth are lost. Change, in and of itself, means that nothing is certain!

Our nation of the United States of America is a lost nation. It is a nation that is now overshadowed by the death clouds of uncertainty. It is a nation that will stay lost as it spirals downward rapidly and draws ever closer to hell. The only change that would save our country is if our nation would completely repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, the one true Saviour! This did not happen with the election of Barack Hussein Obama. We do know that individuals can have their lives changed by the Lord Jesus. If you do not know Him as your personal Lord and Saviour, now is the time to come to Him on your knees in serious repentance and with sincerest prayer. He will hear you and change you. You cannot vote for change; you must repent for change. On Judgment Day eternal salvation will be the only thing that has any value at all. You will be there one way or the other!

Profiles of an Antichrist!

On November 5th, 2008, Barack Hussein Obama was declared President-elect to become the 44th President of the United States of America in January 2009. The number of electoral votes needed to win the presidential election is 270, and Obama had 338 to McCain's 145. It had been a strange campaign and election with strange forces at work. Election fraud and corruption were evident everywhere in the United States. A corrupt organization working for and secretly with Obama is known as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or A.C.O.R.N. This foul outfit was giving cash and cigarettes to street people and then bringing them to register to vote as Democrats. Some individuals were registered as many as seventy-two times. (2) Obama was also raising vast amounts of money as hundreds of millions of dollars flowed into his coffers. He raised 150 million dollars in one month, which was the month of September 2008. (3) Vast amounts of these funds came from overseas, and they were from sources that refused to reveal their identity.

In the eight presidential elections I personally remember, going back to the time of the late John Kennedy, I have never seen anything like the Obama election. It was as if the world was electing him. Two hundred-forty nations were having wild and frenzied celebrations as the news reached them. In Kenya, the true birthplace of Barack Obama, wild ecstasy was everywhere, and people began slaughtering animals to celebrate. Pastor Washington Obonyo in Kenya said, "Senator Obama is our new President; God has answered our prayers." Then a jubilant Joseph Otieno said, "Because Obama has won, we will have change in the whole world. And for that I will slaughter a cockrel to celebrate with my family." (4)

Another thing that must be remembered about our new President-elect is that he made Chicago his home town, and he quickly made his way to the very center of the corrupt Chicago political machine. Many deluded people praised Obama, because during the early days after his nomination he refused taxpayer money for campaign funds. Because of that refusal, the Federal Election Commission cannot conduct an embarrassing audit of his campaign funds. (5) On the other hand, McCain's campaign coffers will receive a rigorous audit. Obama was able to raise unthinkable amounts of money and remain audit-exempt, so his refusal to accept taxpayer campaign funds was void of honorable intent. It was to cover his criminal activity!

Deceived people seem to have an affinity for deceptive leaders, and eventually they worship them. On November 10th, the International Herald Tribune reported that the name Barack has become a hot new name for babies, and that many parents are giving that name to their newborn sons. During the first week after the election in one hospital alone, twenty-three boys were born, and they were all named Barack. (6) In addition to that, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported on November 9th, 2008, that plans are now underway to add another national holiday to our calendar: The Obama National Holiday! (7) What has this man done to deserve any of this?

On Election Eve as Barack Obama was preparing to celebrate, one of the featured entertainers was the ever-popular Bruce Springsteen, who sometimes refers to himself as the Jersey Devil in reference to his home state of New Jersey. On Halloween night, just a few days before the presidential election, Bruce Springsteen posted a free download of a new song on his website entitled "A Night With the Jersey Devil." The song was about sixteen witches casting sixteen spells. (8) As a former occultist, this is no joke to me. In witchcraft, a coven usually consists of thirteen witches. When the number grows beyond that to reach sixteen, there is now a power of three beyond thirteen to begin forming a new coven. This is called hiving off, and thus, Springsteen was singing about the expansion of witchcraft in America. We must also note that there will be fifteen cabinet members, plus the Vice President, who will make up the Obama sixteen! Who is this strange new President-elect, who was raised as a Moslem, and upon coming to Chicago, joined a so-called "Christian" church that does not require a Moslem to renounce his faith to be a member? Who is this sixth post-war President to be left-handed, who has read every Harry Potter book? Who is this strange one who was raised on dog meat and snake meat, and who used many drugs as a teenager, including marijuana and cocaine? Why was he given the code name Renegade by the Secret Service? (9) Many answers to these and other questions will come forth soon.

We also know that Inauguration Day is January 20th, 2009. In astrology and witchcraft, that day is a high day, because it is the day when the sun enters the 11th sign of the zodiac, known as Aquarius. The rock group known as the Fifth Dimension had a hit song about the Age of Aquarius, when a new power would come in with a new harmony and understanding, and that it would be a time of "mystic crystal revelations." We must also remember that the word inaugurate comes from the ancient Roman Empire, where soothsayers were called augurs. The word inaugurate literally means to take omens. It is done while facing the giant 555 foot obelisk, called the Washington Monument. The architectural word obelisk literally means shaft of Baal, which is the erect reproductive organ of Baal, the sun-god. What could be more pagan than all of this?

On the day of his inauguration, Barack Hussein Obama must stand and say the following words: "I do solemnly swear 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." (10) But what is an oath to such a charlatan traitor, who in a speech clearly stated the following: "The Constitution is a fundamental flaw and blind spot….."

There is no doubt in my mind that Barack Hussein Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be President of the United States. His birth certificate has obviously been altered as was proven by a team of forensics experts. Even the certificate number in the upper right corner is completely blacked out. When Attorney Philip Berg of Pennsylvania filed a Federal lawsuit challenging Obama's birth records, he had hopes of getting to the truth of the matter. Shortly before the election, the court threw the case out! (11) This court was presented documentary proof that Barack Obama was born in Mombassa, Kenya, not in Hawaii. Even Obama's own paternal grandmother admitted this fact in the presence of numerous witnesses. One of the witnesses was Bishop Ron McRae, presiding Elder of the African Presbytery of the Anabaptist Churches, who filed a notarized affidavit with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. (12) It was all to no avail. We must also note that Obama's maternal grandmother, who had also been interviewed, became suddenly very ill and died on November 3rd, the day before the election. (13)

There are some very amazing spiritual aspects to Barack Hussein Obama, and none of them are good. Powerful evidence has now emerged regarding his ancestry. Eight thousand Beduin nomadic people say they have photographic and other documentary proof that Obama has Arab blood from the Beduin tribe and came from these tribes of nomadic Arabs of northern Israel. He is also one-quarter white and one-quarter Kenyan. (14) This Beduin connection would make him a descendant of Abraham through Ishmael and a descendant of Esau through the Idumeans and Edomites. The Herodian Dynasty came from this race, including Herod the baby killer, who ruled at the time when Jesus was born. This would make Barack Hussein Obama a prime candidate for the office of Antichrist! In Hebrew, the word "Barak" without the added letter "C" means lightning. When Revelation, chapter 13, tells us of the antichrist causing fire to come down from heaven, the Greek word used there for fire means lightning. Why did the news media on election night keep saying that America and all the other countries were "electrified by Obama's rise in the polls?" We also know that Obama's home state of Illinois has a state lottery with one game called "Pick Three." The numbers for the evening draw on the day he was elected were 6-6-6! (15) I personally believe that some of the same spirits that were in Adolf Hitler are now in Barack Obama. Why did Obama take his campaign to Berlin, Germany, and stand in the Tiergarten with his right arm stiffened and raised to 45 degrees in a Hitler-like salute? Why did thousands of Germans who gathered there return that salute, which is forbidden by law in Germany? Why did Obama give his one-world speech from a place in Berlin where five streets come together at a place called the Big Star? (16)

Barack Obama has made continual comments alluding to self-divinity. In one speech he said a light from above would shine down upon the voters, and they would experience an epiphany. They would then hear a voice from above saying, "Vote for Barack." Here let it be noted that the word epiphany means a revelation of the manifestation of a divine being! On October 22nd, 2008, Obama told the people of Virginia, "I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here." (17) In Lake City, Florida, a large sign was placed in the window of the Obama headquarters which read as follows: "To God be the glory, great things he has done." Under that quote, the sign said, "OBAMA - Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done." (18)

On November 6th, 2008, Obama picked Rahm Emanuel as his White House chief of staff. (19) The name Rahm in the Hebrew language means high and lofty one, and Emanuel means God with us, or God incarnate. Rahm Emanuel is a demonic genius, who cannot finish a sentence without going into excessive profanity. He makes frequent use of the infamous "F" word and frequently raises his middle finger in an obscene gesture. Obviously, this man has no class at all!

On November 10th, 2008, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun warned the people of the United States that President-elect Obama was setting up for a Marxist dictatorship. He gave the following warning: "I fear that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist Dictatorship. It may sound a little crazy or off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this National Security Force….." (20) On November 13th, just three days later, Representative Broun backpedaled and apologized. He stated that he "regretted putting it that way." (21) Have you ever noticed how many times someone in authority found temporary courage and stated the truth, only to cave in later? There is knuckle-busting in high places.

Is all of this really happening? On November 10th, 2008, it was reported that the co-chair of the Obama transition team, Valerie Jarrett, used some very interesting words on the Meet the Press program. She made the following declaration to Tom Brokaw: "Obama will be ready to rule on day one." She then repeated herself with the following words: "Given the daunting challenges that we face, it is important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one." (22) Since when are American politicians kings that rule from office? We also know that Georgia Congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis made the following statement on election night: "Today's election was a non-violent revolution, and an unbelievable and unreal transformation of American politics." He said these words to news anchor Charlie Gibson. (23)

Are we, at this very time, in a metamorphosis and transition into a Marxist-Socialist and even Communistic state? Here let it be noted that on November 7th, 2008, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev stated in a news release that the Obama Administration needs to implement a far-reaching perestroika in the United States. The word perestroika is strictly a Russian Communist word that means restructuring! (24) We must remember that Mikhail Gorbachev after leaving office in the Soviet Union was given a new job and title by the global Illuminists. He came to the United States and was given an impressive office at the Presidio in San Francisco, California. He became the head of an organization designed to reshape the United States into an interdependant unit of a one-world government. His organization was called the State of the World Forum. I stood by his office in 1999, and we did verify that he was there, right next to the FEMA complex. We rebuked his office in the name of the Lord Jesus. Within a few days, an earthquake rattled his offices, his wife died, and he went back to Russia. Never underestimate the power of prayer, and always leave it all in the hands of the Almighty.

On November 9th, Obama's handpicked White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, revealed that Obama is set to push a reform package on the United States. Obama's new reforms have been referred to as the "big bang." (25) We must remember that the words "big bang" are used by the evolutionists to explain how the universe came forth with no God as a creator. Obama also stated that he will use executive orders for immediate impact. (26)

Rising of the 666 Money System!

The economy of the United States continues to collapse, and the signs of it are everywhere. Gains in the stock market are quickly lost, and the entire trend is downward. On November 6th, 2008, the Associated Press reported the following headline: "Stocks tumble, lose 10 percent in 2-day rout." (27) It is always an amazing thing when a trillion dollars are lost in two days! Where did it go? The sad fact is that the wealth is falling into fewer and fewer hands. The Federal Government is also continuing to shut down banks. On November 8th, 2008, two more large banks, the large Houston-based Franklin Bank, and the Security Pacific Bank in Los Angeles, were shut down. Countless more are in grave danger of being shut down as well! (28) Why is all of this happening, even after the massive government bailout? The answer is simple. Even though the government told us they were going to buy the bad debts of the banks, they are in fact buying the banks themselves. Large stakes are being purchased in the major banks of the United States. (29) It is all a part of the plot to depart from the Constitution of the United States and force Marxist socialism upon the unsuspecting American people.

On November 10th, 2008, Bloomberg News reported that the Federal Reserve has flatly refused to disclose who received two trillion dollars of taxpayer money. (30) Remember, the bailout was supposed to be only 700 billion dollars, and that was bad enough. Suddenly, trillions of dollars are disappearing to undisclosed recipients. Obviously, the government is intentionally destroying our economy to make way for the new electronic beast money system. We are watching this systematically happen before our very eyes. Anyone with a properly working brain knows that you cannot repair our current system of credits and currencies. The Illuminati-controlled Federal Government has no intentions or expectations in that direction. They are preparing the way for the second beast of Revelation, chapter thirteen, who will cause everyone to receive the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell anything.

On November 15th, 2008, a G-20 summit was held at the White House in Washington, D.C. Twenty world leaders came together to discuss the worldwide financial crisis and to decide what to do about it. The meeting was short and simple. All twenty leaders agreed to cooperate with each other, and then they headed for the banquet table. Then the feasting began with entrees such as Fruitwood smoked Quail, Thyme-roasted Rack of Lamb, and Tomato, Fennel and Eggplant Fondue Chanterelle Jus. They washed all of this down with Shafer Cabernet Hillside Select 2003 wine at a cost of $500 per bottle. (31) All of that talk about conditions of economic failure and people living in poverty must have made them hungry. Meanwhile, millions of Americans remain jobless, homeless, and in the depth of poverty.

On November 13th, 2008, Mayor Daley of Chicago released a warning for his giant city to prepare for mass layoffs for both the private sector and government workers at city, county, and state levels. (32) Meanwhile, major cities throughout the United States are bankrupt and asking for bailouts. Billions of dollars are being requested by Atlanta, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. (33) The City Council of Detroit has requested 10 billion dollars in bailout money. (34) The state of California has also requested a loan of 7 billion dollars, which you can be sure will never be paid back. (35) We also know that the auto makers are crying for a massive government bailout under which the government would be buying significant portions of the auto industry. (36) Unless God intervenes, we will no doubt see the day when the strong socialistic Federal Government owns the auto companies, airlines, and all private industry. It is beginning to happen now!

Truly, we are seeing things happen that have never happened before. The United States Postal Service recently announced a massive cut of 40,000 jobs. It is their first layoff in history! (37) It is all quite amazing when we realize that our financial collapse and demise, as we now see it happening, could not have happened without computers. It takes computers to manage billions and trillions of dollars. It takes computers to manage debt of all types. Earlier this year, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) died. Before he died, the brilliant professor of computer science pronounced computers as devices of evil and called them anti-human. The professor, Dr. Joseph Weizenbaum, said that computer systems could be compared with National Socialism, Karl Marx, and Stalin. Dr. Weizenbaum also issued the following sobering statement: "How long will it be before what counts as fact is determined by the system, before all other knowledge, all memory, is simply declared illegitimate?" Dr. Weizenbaum also compared the internet to "one of those garbage dumps outside Bombay, India." Truly, the last days are upon us!

Global Sinning And Great Signs of the End!

Global sinning is constantly increasing, and this will continue until the very day of the return of our Saviour. In II Timothy 3:13 we read as follows: "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." We also know that the heavy and continual human rebellion against God, as humans fall into lock-step cooperation with evil spirits, also has a profound effect on the creation of God. The earth, sun, moon, and stars are all reacting to the horrifying extent of global sinning! In Romans 8:22 we read the following: "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." I have personally been watching and documenting the dynamic incidents of man's rebellion and God's reaction to it for many years.

On election night, November 4th, 2008, Proposition 8 passed in the state of California. The Supreme Court of California, which decided that sodomite couples had a right to marry, had their decision overridden by a narrow margin of voters. The sodomites went berserk with anger and began massive protests. There were already sixteen thousand sodomite couples in California, and many more planning to be married. Six days later, Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger of California made a speech on behalf of the sodomites telling them, "Don't give up!" The governor also pledged the support of his administration to help overturn Proposition 8 and not only reinstate sodomite marriages, but also "lead the country in that arena." (38) Then it happened! Just after making his speech promoting the abomination of homosexual marriage, fires began to break out. In Montecito, one hundred multimillion dollar homes were destroyed. (39) Then other fires broke out in the San Fernando Valley. Currently over one thousand homes have been destroyed in the blazing infernos whipped up by high winds. God is so willing to help and forgive if only people would repent; otherwise, there is much more judgment coming!

Another thing that happened on election night is that the state of Massachusetts decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. (40) This has opened a door for many evils and great demonic activity.

In Mexico City, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard announced that beginning December 1st, 2008, the city intends to provide free Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis to 112,000 men seventy years and older who live in his city. The mayor said the drugs would increase the happiness and quality of life of the elderly men. (41)

In Australia, the White Cockatoo Resort in Mossman is sponsoring a month-long nude "anything goes" party to combat the economic downturn. The local regional Mayor, Val Schier, has no objections to the event, and even though the hedonistic celebration doesn't begin until March 2009, the reservations are nearly filled. (42)

The earth is literally shaking under the influence of shameful sin. At this present time, we are still averaging nearly three hundred significant earthquakes every month of magnitude four or greater. These quakes continue non-stop according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Less than one month ago, a powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 hit Chechnya, Russia, and completely destroyed 1,027 buildings. (43) Just before Election Day in America, a magnitude 6.1 quake rattled the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. The entire region was shaken! (44) As I look at the earthquake maps, it is becoming obvious that the earth's crust is literally coming apart at the seams. How much more can it take? All of this was foretold in Matthew, chapter 24; Luke, chapter 21; and Mark, chapter 13!

Astronomers are now shocked as they look into the heavens, because powerful auroras, or glowing masses, are appearing around various planets of our solar system such as have never been seen before. A massive blood-red cloud of glowing gases now covers much of northern Saturn. I have in front of me a picture of the planet taken by NASA's Cassini space craft; and in my forty-six years of studying astronomy, I have never seen Saturn look like this. Cassini scientist Tom Stallard said, "We've never seen an aurora like this elsewhere." (45) The blood-red mass almost seems alive as it pulsates and glows!

There are also unprecedented changes taking place on our sun. NASA scientists are marveling because the sun is slowly starting to dim, and there were no sunspots at all for two months. That has never happened before. Scientists are saying that the sun is now on a dimmer switch -- solar winds have weakened, and the sun is cooler and less dense. (46) It is as if our sun is beginning to die early.

Many odd things continue to happen everywhere. On election night in the utmost east of our country, massive fifteen foot waves began to pound the coast of Maine at low tide. The residents of Boothbay Harbor thought it was the end of the world as three separate rounds of crashing giant waves came from nowhere and began to rip docks apart. The horrified residents were heard to cry out, "Oh my God, is this the end?" Scientists have been unable to explain the unusual event! (47)

In conclusion, I urge everyone to continue to pray the prayers of faith! Your requests are always welcomed here, and they receive individual attention. Never give up. No prayer is wasted! Thanks to all of you who support this prophetic ministry, which is now going into its 28th year of publication. Please remember to send in your renewal notice enclosed with this newsletter to be sure you are on the 2009 mailing list. God bless you exceedingly! Grace and peace be unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“See, they return, one, and by one, With fear, as half-awakened;” --Ezra Pound

Some people just don't want to be confused with facts that contradict their preconceived opinions or prejudices.

During the presidential race Democrats were so committed to “change” and the counterintuitive claim that McCain represented a third Bush term (despite McCain's significant record of mucking up GOP goals and objectives) they somehow neglected to mention electing Barack Obama could result in a third Bill Clinton term (albeit arguably without the erstwhile bimbo eruptions...).

Change can be good and experience is valuable. However, change for the sake of change is bad, and experience not tempered with lessons learned is bad.

As the President-elect fleshes out his cabinet, the potential potholes of Senate confirmation hearings are begrudgingly being acknowledged.

It has been reported that John Podesta, has told Senate aides Obama hoped for a speedy confirmation so the new administration could get to work quickly thereafter. Good luck with that…

In the wake of past controversies involving some of his picks, the hearings could end up being bloody and/or hugely entertaining. So, as the dust settles and the Electoral College gets close to making it official, what will the new Barack Obama administration look like? A lot like the Bill Clinton administration...warts and all.

• Hillary Clinton appears to have locked up the post of Secretary of State
• Eric Holder seems destined to be Attorney General.
• Former Senate leader Tom Daschle is the apparent his health secretary.
• Partisan pit-bull Rahm Emmanuel is going to be Chief of Staff.
• Timothy Geithner has been tapped as Treasury secretary.
• Gov. Bill Richardson for commerce secretary.
• Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for secretary of the Homeland Security Department.

The potential for conflicts is significant.

Richardson's involvement in the Lewinsky mess may be minor, (reportedly, he offered Monica Lewinsky a job at the United Nations in what prosecutors claimed was an attempt to buy her silence on behalf of President Bill Clinton) however, he also failed to properly safeguard nuclear secrets after he left his U.N. post to be energy secretary.

Napolitano could be haunted by her work in the Anita Hill sexual harassment case and Holder should expect questions over his support of President Clinton's controversial pardon of Marc Rich.

None of the nominations are anywhere close to failing however, if the GOP hasn’t been totally neutered, there could be some entertaining delays.

In 2000 the Senate Armed Services Committee looked into inquiries into security lapses at Los Alamos National Laboratories. At the time, Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a capital D Democrat) told Richardson he would never again receive Senate support for any office he sought.

"You have squandered your treasure," Byrd told him. That was then…this is now.

Napolitano was re-elected Arizona's governor in 2006, but is no stranger to Washington controversy. As a private attorney in 1991, Napolitano was part of the legal team representing Anita Hill, during Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas’s hearings when Hill had accused Thomas of sexual harassment.

At the time, some Republicans suggested she coached a witness for Hill into changing testimony. Napolitano flat out refused to answer questions about that. She claimed it would violate the lawyer-client confidentiality agreement.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued a statement in response to Obama’s decision to hire Clinton impeachment lawyer and controversial Washington, DC, attorney Greg Craig as White House Counsel.

“It is disturbing that Barack Obama will allow Bill Clinton’s impeachment lawyer Greg Craig to serve as his White House Counsel. Many thought Barack Obama had beaten the Clinton political machine. Instead, he appears to have embraced it. Given his defense of Bill Clinton’s lies and obstruction of justice, what sort of legal advice will Mr. Craig give to President Obama? Will it all depend on what the meaning of ‘is’ is?”

Spokesman for the Republican National Committee, Alex Conant said, "Barack Obama is filling his administration with longtime Washington insiders." Duh! What ever happened to the ubiquitous “change” slogan?

Sen. Tom Daschle's appointment for Secretary of Health and Human Services is not without potential conflict despite his uberinsider status. Democratic officials say the job is his barring any surprises. However, one potential hiccup will be the lobbying connections of his wife, Linda Hall Daschle, who has worked mostly on behalf of airline-related companies over the years.

Obama will change the face of the administration but although (like the Captain of the Titanic) he is rearranging the deck chairs, the names and faces suggest a return to past failures and may present some buyer’s remorse reality checks from the rabid Obama maniacs who were expecting (because they were told) something new, innovative and “fresh.”

As I reflect during this Thanksgiving season about our country and what to be thankful for, I am ah struck when I look at the real story and sacrifice of the pilgrims that first Thanksgiving with the local Indians. Instead of the big fancy Turkey and pumpkin pie meals we have today they had a bunch of Deer meat and venison. The key thing to remember is that though having fled to an entirely new continent, though fragile in health for many, though having to trust the Lord for endless survival needs and details they did. They were full of thanks to God and seeking His guidance in all things.

During this weekend I can look back on the evolution and history of our country and see the miracle working and guiding hand of God on our country, from overcoming the British in battle after battle that strategically should have been won by them but wasn’t, to the growth and establishment of our miraculous constitution and bill of rights! We really are a miraculous invention of God. The world looks on to our light and most want what we have and take for granted. Notice with all the criticism we have taken from so many over the last several decades, all the people are sneaking across our borders and breaking into our country. I don’t see many breaking into the Middle East, Mexico or Africa do you?

We see the Warning lights!

It is no surprise to any of you that we are entering a stage in our country where our way of life, our freedoms and Judeo Christian foundation are at risk. We have drifted and are drifting into socialist thinking and redistribution of wealth instead of capitalism and its accountability and achievement principles. We are also drifting away from our moral foundation. Some are trying to make God and expressions of faith practically illegal. Gays, illegals and terrorists are all most special, the rest of us seem to be chopped liver and are led to the “hater, racist” corner to shut up if we dare raise our voices in protest for the left’s overreach.

We tend to swing to extremes and look for a savior

We have now swung to the far left again, the pro abortion, anti gun rights, increase our taxes, talk to our enemies, give more rights to the fringe ‘special’ people, and dismantle capitalism crowd!!! Many of you voted this in. Now we have to live with it for at least another 4 years.

During this time rather than hide under the bed, see our therapists and cry in Mom’s lap, WE THE PEOPLE, the strongest branch of Government, who still have a voice in this country must LET THAT VOICE BE HEARD, locally, regionally and nationally. Regularly hold your congress person’s feet to the fire.

Clarify in your heart this week what you think about our economy, health care, our borders, taxation, abortion, gay marriage, gun rights, our freedoms and religious expression rights and FIND OUR VOICE. IT WILL BE UP HILL……..BUT THE VERY MIRACULOUS POWER THAT CREATED OUR COUNTRY WILL BE THERE AGAIN IF WE HUMBLE OURSELVES BEFORE THE LIVING GOD AND ASK FOR HIS HELP AND GUIDANCE AGAIN IN OUR LIVES AND COUNTRY. YOUR COUNTRY DEPENDS ON YOU MORE THAN EVER.

“Above the shuttered mansion the windy sky cries out…a spirit storming in blank walls, a dirty house in a gutted world” [1]

America’s major social institutions have been collapsing for a long time; the economic and Constitutional crises of today are part of a series. As this proceeds, the media make it seem Americans are living in a 19th century political cartoon. There was a clip of Mr. Cash-Carry the other evening saying that credit was beginning to loosen in the bowels of the financial system. We need only to “have confidence” and the liquidity applied to the blockage will begin moving through the business end “in a few months.” The Bowl Games will play out so long as we do due diligence.

Mr. O’Reilly favored “the Obama girl” with ten free minutes of face time and smirking gush. She’s a model, is Amber Lee Ettinger, and works for with a pun intended [2]. Its satire is an assault on the American mind, conditioning youth to see politics as an erotic joke and means of making money: a self-fulfilling prophecy. In the spring, this “hottie” (young virtual-tart) gyrated and grinded her way against various animate and inanimate objects in her professed heat for the spliced-narratives now fronting a new cabinet. After some gentle prodding, she confessed that, yes, she gets paid for her ‘work,’ that she’s a “model” who once knew “very little” about politics but is “learning a lot.” The genial host praised her “entrepreneurial spirit…that made America great” and encouraged her to note that whenever the spliced-narratives float a policy her talent could be there to sell it: she need only seize the time. If she’s shrewd she may rise to be a regular contributor to Mr. O’s variety hour. In any case, she is discovering the pedigree of the oldest profession at its nexus with politics.

“Making politics sexy again” says the enterprise, ship of the age when sex, like most matters becomes all surface, tease and flash: all sizzle and no steak; all dazzle, no light. “I like to dance for candidates,” she said and smiled, -- the harem of the future beckoning – and added, “Four more years of great material to work with,” uh huh. So Attorneys Berg and Donofrio might as well give up; it’s just “a satire.”

Mr. O added, “We’ve got barely political in the minds of America” and that bit of embedded MK was another triumph of the distraction-and-enchantment machine. While they chatted, the ticker carried a stream of information about Al Qaeda, the FBI and Iran. Mr. Zawhairi quoted Malcolm X in an unfriendly allusion to the status of the narrative-electus; Amber Lee and Bill smiled and chatted.

The variety hour is fair and balanced as is Ms. Ettinger, so it followed the advert on her employer’s business with segments on the free speech rights of nude bike-riders in Oregon and Seattle; the images, more radical than Amber, were blurred. Apparently anyone has the right to be naked in Seattle’s parks and in Oregon if you are protesting a political statement, that is, anything at all because “the personal is political” you may ride a bike around naked: “fair is foul and foul is fair…” Somehow the eruption of this speech seems as contrived in timing as the market collapse and loosening of the credit blockage. Legal, political, erotic and economic terms of art rush together as all boundaries dissolve like collapsing dikes in a flood.

America is being absorbed by Europe economically and that means politically and, in due course, culturally. The meetings of Mr. Bush in Berlin and Rome with high-ranking folks there bore fruit in the descent of the G-20 upon Washington for their economic summit. The opening ceremony shows President Bush receiving a welcome befitting the world’s attitude toward America, one that increasingly affects policies: the more the target is abused and condemned the more it is termed a “bully” per the principle, “no act of kindness goes unpunished” in a postmodern world [3]. “Sovereignty is out the window”; there has been a “seamless integration of American into the European economy… a partnership with death.” Of course it was not Mr. Bush who “went down without a fight,” he merely acted out to the end his scripted part, the narrative written for him, if you will. “Sovereignty is gone without a vote, -- by gradual bureaucratic encroachment.” Forever we recognize after the fact that the sordid buccaneers have played their serious farce while we awaken only to the noise of media ‘applause’ as the curtain comes down. “Before I could make a prologue for my brains, they had begun their play” [4]; Hamlet’s astonished words should be the motto for our times.

Our audacious oligarchs also script the part of the audience. Previous essays have noted the devolution of education into “orientation and counseling,” into “social engineering” and “the intellectual organization of political hatreds” a phrase whose full import or relevance to “educators” like Mr. Ayers Benda hardly could have anticipated eighty years ago [5]. The goal of this engineering, this sustained experimentation upon human beings, especially children and families, is to “subordinate mankind to a universal system” such as advocated by H.G. Wells, Julian H. Huxley and others. To accomplish this one must create “a general and permanent enthusiasm, a secular religion [with] decrees to enforce ‘virtues’ through high-sounding collectivist abstractions” [6]. That is as perfect a definition of political correctness, which began here in the 1960s, as one can find. Its extension via lawless law and the postmodern academy reaching down to pervade K-12 has now sealed most minds and language itself into a glacial scrum of deceit, a naked bicycle ride down the dead-end of ‘group-mind’ and Oneness University.

Through the practiced oratorical-hypnotic skills of narrative-electus this engineering, this nationwide MK program has been perfected. The recent campaign, the beginning of the perennial campaign was most notable for its successful practice of “trance induction” as described by Erickson in 1952 [7]. The extensive pauses, repeated use of key words and gestures focused on the ‘savior,’ the ranks of nodding heads in the background were a form of mass hypnosis applying a technique described decades ago. Watching it over the months reminded this reader of Melville’s fascinating, bitterly satiric novel of con-games on a Mississippi riverboat. The first postmodern novel by a century or more, it has little narrative continuity but various professions of purchased faith. The protagonist, “the mystical master” is chameleonic, changing shape and identity at will. He sells “confidence” as salvation, imploring or demanding his customer-victims have faith in his “confidence to remove obstacles” [8]. A “great medicine” man he is forever spinning confessional narratives: “he operates, he purges, and he drains off the repletion.” Names, friendships, philanthropy all are “hypothetical.” With their lives in chaos and the boat in uproar, the passengers realize they have purchased nothing and that the charlatan cannot be found. Change you can believe in? Have confidence in the masquerade of “a man in great esteem for his politic sagacity.”

The purposeful massaging of collectivist abstractions by the team that put him together and now puts together “his” team truly is a work of postmodern art, masks and shadows.

One might be heartened that despite the media’s selling of this “permanent enthusiasm” via trance induction; despite the inhibitions, subconscious, social and legal to criticizing or even becoming conscious of the fraud; despite the overwhelming financial resources pushing the scripted outcome; despite the massive vote fraud of many kinds, from tax-funded false registrations to illegal immigrants voting, -- without knowing more English than the “look-say” method of mental impairment can impart; despite the “challenged campaign” of the designated loser, the semi-alternative: despite all these the margin was relatively small and the issue, at least technically, still in doubt. Perhaps that too is scripted, part of the “generated crisis” one of the actors mentioned.

The battle’s lost even if it’s won; don’t expect a clearing of the fog and filthy air via the legal system. This is the era of lawless law, of outcome-based politicized decrees decided by pleasant phone calls or conversations among the dominant class as they pursue their “subtle poetic-political work” [9]. Every judge a Humpty-Dumpty: “words mean exactly what I say they mean.” So too, in the postmodern age of virtual reality “when the life visible to all is not real” having been drained of its genuine qualities and the real facts are determined and programmed out of sight; when the media act like squid squirting inky clouds of ‘coverage’ on the true facts of impoverished lives, the law is unlikely to assert a basic principle. If “there is no injury in fact” to Americans in the fact that a presidential candidate, nominee and vote victor does not qualify for office that is as much as saying that it doesn’t matter whether America exists or not; that there is “no injury in fact” to anyone should it become a virtual nation, borderless, polyglot, its dominant institutions controlled by those unaccountable to its citizens who are held to have “no standing” to defend their identity. The injuries of course are extensive, but a class of legal and bureaucratic oligarchs, drunk on the cup of power, well-funded by those for whom power is the ultimate intoxicant and thus committed to a “world collective” decides what is or is not law. As Humpty Dumpty said, “the only question is ‘who is the master, that’s all!” The faith of the founders that a carefully designed Constitution, a secular scripture based on Scriptures could sustain a nation respectful of ordered liberty has been shown to be unfounded just as the founders are unfounded by the “transvaluation” of their values.

How long has it been since the electors truly exercised their function? Were the dangers of direct democracy and the dogma that “everyone’s got a right to vote” not sufficiently clear? And what if the challenges to the problems of eligibility are upheld, who will inherit the game? They not only have begun their play, the last curtain is coming down; we awaken to their self-congratulatory applause like the shattering roar of breakers on a beach where, in the twilight, all the distinctions that make society humane dissolve and the realm reels back into the beast. In a decade the Court will proclaim collectivist injunctions that solidify its total power while “civilian security forces” in tandem with ‘educators’ intone correct mantras ushering us into “a dark enclosure, a box” [10].

The courts, the media, the school system legislate to suit the will of their funders: to the extent that they have completed this long-developing project, “they have it their way: the world is ugly and the people are sad” [11].

Yet insight is the beginning of rebirth; to expose the nakedness of the drowsy emperor or empress is to enable new shoots to grow. With the collapse, wheat may come from the ruins. Teach children history, the disciplines of compassion and memory: whatever comes, the soul cannot be snuffed out.

Although the show was propaganda produced by leftist Norman Lear, no one could accuse “All in the Family” of not being funny. Its protagonist, blue-collar bigot Archie Bunker, is one of those legendary television characters, and one of his uproarious lines is apropos here. It was uttered during a scene in which his daughter, Gloria, passionately asked him, “Daddy, did you know that 65 percent of the people murdered in the last ten years were killed by handguns?” The curmudgeonly patriarch’s reply was classic: “Would it make you feel any better, little girl, if they was pushed outta’ windas’?”

While what follows isn’t the conclusion Lear wanted us to draw, the truth is that many Americans would feel better. People tend to fixate on the boogeyman of their ideology, and they often don’t trouble much about evil when it’s not committed in his name.

We see examples of this phenomenon today, and this brings me to a couple of questions of my own. Can tyranny be visited in the name of only one particular lie? And would it make you feel any better if millions were oppressed or murdered to promote a fashionable lie? The truth is, sadly, millions would feel better.

Archie’s characteristic fault, bigotry, is today a very unfashionable lie. It’s also a very exaggerated one. Up until just recently, millions of Americans were absolutely certain a black man could never be elected president. I had pointed out on numerous occasions, both at private gatherings and in print (here, here and here, for instance), that America is the least “racist” country on Earth and that a black person could very easily ascend to the White House. So, before we proceed, let’s make something crystal clear.

I and my philosophical soul mates were right, and the other side was wrong.

Very wrong.

Completely, irrefutably, unambiguously wrong.

How they could be so wrong? The answer is, they’re in the grip of a false ideology that is emotionally pleasing to them. And the cool regions of the head are easily trumped by the raging fires of the heart.

People have always been raised with certain dogmas. In our time, the three r’s of education are revisionism, relativism, and racism, and we are instilled with the notion that the last thing is the end-all and be-all, the source of all our woes. In fact, the modern version of that old biblical admonition would have to be “Racism is the root of all evil.”

This is evident in our culture. In textbooks and documentaries we are bombarded with gratuitous treatments of slavery and discrimination in America (not elsewhere, where the former is extant and the latter generally far worse), and the media report every detectable bigoted word uttered or racial act committed by white people, no matter how statistically rare it might be, for the purposes of portraying our nation as ridden with racism and in need of “the fix” (this is partially why we’ve been fixed like a dog). Then there is the matter of how communism is viewed kindly relative to National Socialism (which partially explains why “big C” communism is again on the rise). We are outraged that 11 million were killed because of a racial agenda, as we should be, yet it seems that it would make modern man’s inner little girl feel better if they had been exterminated in the name of an atheistic/economic one. After all, while the communists killed about ten times as many – 100 million worldwide during the 20th century – its defenders are never lowered to where they belong, the nadir of pariah status occupied by a neo-Nazi. But, of course, godlessness and economic egalitarianism are all the rage in these enlightened times.

Many will justify such bias, claiming that the demon of discrimination cannot be exorcised without constant prayer to the god of government; there must be a bit of over-compensation in much that same way that a crooked wire cannot be made right unless it’s bent beyond straight in the other direction. But it is also true that if you keep bending it in the fashionable direction, it becomes more crooked than it was before. The yoke of tyranny isn’t less burdensome just because it’s born of an unfashionable lie’s opposite.

This is why it’s so dangerous when we deceive ourselves about a problem. To paraphrase C.S. Lewis’ in The Screwtape Letters, the demon bent on civilization’s demise reasons that he must convince people to exaggerate their faults. Thus, we dark angels must tell the militarist that he is too pacifistic and the pacifist that he is too militaristic. In light of this, consider that certain forces in our thoroughly politically-correct society, where cultural affirmative action carries the day, continually tell us that we’re too racist.

When you understand this phenomenon whereby man swings from one extreme to the other and consider what we regard to be our greatest mistakes of the past, it becomes clear why we are in our current social state and what dangers may lie on the horizon. I will elaborate.

Barack Obama’s infamous ex-pastor, friend and confidant, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, subscribes to “Black Liberation Theology.” He expressed one of its tenets during a fiery sermon, saying:

“Jesus was a poor black man who lived in a country and who lived in a culture that was controlled by rich white people.”

Such rhetoric is tolerated by much of society. But not by those, such as authentic Christians, who understand that Jesus should not be reduced to a racial symbol. After all, such a characterization is as ridiculous as claiming Jesus was a member of the Nordic race and did battle with Jews.

Oh, by the way, the latter was claimed – by the National Socialists – in 1930s Germany. It was called “positive Christianity,” and it was tolerated by much of society. But not by people, such as authentic Christians, who understood that Jesus should not be reduced to a racial symbol.

As for citizens who disagreed with National Socialist doctrine, they were often silenced; I suppose it was very unfashionable to claim that your Aryan race didn’t enjoy superiority. We have risen beyond this today, of course. So much so, in fact, that we have speech codes in colleges and corporations and hate-speech laws in many countries which ensure that people who disagree with the doctrine of racial equivalency along every conceivable dimension will often be silenced. It’s a totally different thing.

The National Socialists (and many others) were wrong not just because they believed in differences among groups that didn’t exist, but, far more significantly, because they also assumed that a group’s worth was determined by its characteristic abilities and overall intelligence. They didn’t understand that everyone is deserving of dignity because he is a child of God; this is an easy mistake to make when your ideology becomes your god and its tenets your truth. This is why it may be comforting to certain people that our faith is so strong.

And something happens when your agenda and its truth supplant God, the Truth. When its tenets conflict with the Truth, instead of discarding the former, you rationalize away the latter. Thus, when fleet-footed Jesse Owens prevailed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and Joe Louis pummeled German Max Schmeling in their second heavyweight bout, it did nothing to disabuse the National Socialists of their ideas. The doctrine that they occupied the highest rung of a racial hierarchy determined by genetics could not be questioned.

We’re not like that at all. Instead, we’re diligent enough to ostracize people such as Jimmy “the Greek” Snyder and renowned scientists William Shockley and James Watson for suggesting that some group differences could have a genetic basis. The doctrine of comprehensive absolute genetic racial equivalency cannot be questioned.

In reality, the balanced view of the matter is very simple: While there are differences among groups, there are also differences within groups. The latter is why we must judge everyone as an individual, and the former is why we must judge every individual group as an individual group.

The National Socialists had a problem with this, as they were bent on believing that a person’s group identity is destiny; it was a doctrine that justified discrimination. We’re not like that at all. We insist that a group’s group identity is meaningless. Ashkenazi Jews have the highest I.Q. of any group, blacks tolerate heat better and tend to be more muscular, and I’m sure every group possesses genetically-based advantages of some kind. Yet this mustn’t be acknowledged, as it contradicts our doctrine that performance differences among groups must be attributed to discrimination.

The National Socialists were also gung-ho nationalistic; it helped greatly to rally Josef Six-pack. We’re not like that at all. In fact, we go so far as to criticize flag-wavers and, as Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill can attest, preach anti-Americanism in academia, the media and Hollywood. We have moved beyond tribal loyalties. We are internationalists.

Yes, we are nothing like those racial dogmatists of bygone days. We can truthfully say, as writer Ace Walker once pointed out, “We’re not National Socialists, you bloody fool. We’re international socialists!”

Another characteristic of the National Socialists is that before they gained the power to impose their agenda through the law, they did so through the lawless; they used brown-shirted thugs to intimidate and silence opposition.

We’re not like that at all.

Our mobs don’t wear brown shirts. They just storm stages (Columbia and other attacks on traditionalists at colleges), intimidate voters, steal conservative newspapers, attack conservative students and vandalize their homes, and force-feed students politically-correct ideas in academia.

Then there are the aspirations, which are sometimes expressed by readers of left-wing news sites. For instance, at a very popular site I came across a post to the effect of (I’m paraphrasing):

“Racists should be beaten and then put in re-education camps until their thinking is changed.”

This was not an uncommon sentiment at this site and was unchallenged by the other respondents.

To place this in perspective, remember that things such as condemning Islamist beliefs, speaking frankly about crime statistics, criticizing Obama and even opposing welfare have been labeled racist. Why, even Bill Clinton, the former and now completely white “first black president,” was labeled a racist during the primary campaign. “Racist” has become synonymous with “bad guy,” and bad guy has come to mean “someone who disagrees with our doctrine.” And, you see, the remedy for doctrinal incorrectness is a re-education camp.

So we exhibit that dreaded pattern, that tendency to go from one extreme to another. No matter how far we bend that wire, we’re continually told we’re too racist. We’re ever on the watch for closet National Socialists, inheritors of a philosophy whose adherents murdered millions under the banner of racial superiority. But what will be the result of an ever-intensifying obsession to enforce a racial-equivalency doctrine whose adherents see enemies around every corner?

Well, whatever. I’m sure modern man’s inner little girl will feel better as long as people are only pushed out of windows.

[Announcement: Did you know Alan Stang has a new radio show? Click here for details.]

The event that will determine whether or not this nation survives was not the popular vote for Illegal-Alien Elect Hussein. It will be the decision the U.S. Supreme Court makes on whether he is eligible to serve. Some people in the other branches have said the Constitution is dead. The late Republicrud Congressman Henry Hyde of Illinois – a purported “conservative” – said as follows: “The Constitution is old and needs to be rewritten.”

Hyde also said this: “There are things in the Constitution that have been over taken by events, by time. The declaration of war is one of them. There are things no longer relevant to a modern society. Why declare war if you don’t have to? . . . It’s inappropriate, it’s anachronistic and it isn’t done anymore.” So Hyde was content to leave that awesome power in the hands of one man. The Founders were not.

Many Capitol sources report that when Republican leaders were reluctant to renew certain provisions of the “Patriot” Act, el presidente Jorge W. Boosh replied, “I don't give a goddamn. I'm the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.” Told there was a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution, Boosh allegedly screamed, “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face! It's just a goddamned piece of paper!” Needless to say, Boosh is another “conservative.”

Of course Hyde was a legislator and Boosh is a buffoon. Their opinions are worthless. But now a confrontation approaches that will be decisive. By December first, Illegal-Alien Elect Hussein must show proof to the U.S. Supreme Court that he is a “natural born citizen.” On December fifth, the entire court will decide whether to consider the question.

There are only two possibilities. Either Hussein is a natural born citizen or he is not. So far, all the evidence says he is not. His grandmother says she was in the Mombasa hospital room when he was born. His half-siblings agree. His own site says he was a citizen of Kenya at birth. His step father registered him in school as a citizen of Indonesia. Last week, His Excellency Peter Ogego, Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, told WRIF Radio in Detroit that Hussein was indeed born in Kenya.

On the other side, there are some forged documents; there is no evidence. And now comes an investigator who uses the name “Ron Polarik,” probably for self-protection. “Polarik” is a Ph.D. with twenty years of experience validating documents, especially computer-generated documents. His report on the fraudulent Hussein documents is overwhelmingly exhaustive. Go to my site,, for the link to it. See what you think.

If Hussein does indeed have proof he is natural born, why has he withheld it? The only speculation I can think of is he has waited all this time to reveal it in order to embarrass lawyers Phil Berg and Leo Donofrio and many others who have filed suits. By revealing it now he could play the injured party and leave lots of egg on their faces, but the new question would arise of why he has been playing games all along and wasted so much of the nation’s time, when he could have put the matter to rest long ago. So far he still qualifies as Illegal-Alien Elect.

If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in his favor – in the face of the metastasizing evidence – I shall conclude that the Constitution now is dead and therefore that the country is no more, because the High Court says so. Remember, this is not a case with evidence and arguments on both sides, in which the court must find the preponderance. There is nothing on the other side, except counterfeits and forgeries.

One delicious aspect of the case is that during the recent campaign Hussein said he would not have nominated Justice Clarence Thomas to the High Court because, says Hussein, he was “not experienced enough,” and it was to Justice Thomas that lawyer Leo Donofrio brought his action.

Among the many differences between Hussein and Thomas is that we know where Thomas was born and he is considerably blacker than Hussein. Hussein also says he would not have nominated Justice Antonin Scalia. If these two and but two others vote to consider the citizenship issue when the full court meets on December fifth, the court will consider it. There would still be time to cancel the meeting of the electoral college. Will the court have the courage to do it?

What would it mean if the Constitution were dead? Even before the interment, the effects are apparent, as in an approaching hurricane. The Constitution is our basic, organic law, from which all written law descends. Without it, there would be lip service, not law. The government would simply issue arbitrary decrees. There would be dictatorship. The concept of legality would evaporate. How could you tell right from wrong? Something would be right if you could get away with it. If you could not, it would be wrong.

Meanwhile, remember that it was not just the superb campaign the Obamatrons mounted – including funding, organization, election fraud, etc. – that elected Hussein. Without the collaboration of the national Communist media, left and right, Hussein could not have been elected, however much funding, organization and fraud he employed. On the left there was sickening degenerate Chris Matthews, who feels a thrill run up his leg during wet dreams about Hussein. There was Katie Kook and the Communist Broadcasting System. On the right, there were Limbag, Loopy Laura and sissy puke Levin, who helped conceal the real story of Hussein, all the things we tell you here.

You may recall that, more than once, I called the people in the national Communist media traitors, enemies of this country just as much as an invading Wehrmacht division would have been in World War II, except that because these propagandist agents of a foreign power do not fight in uniform, they are terrorists and therefore are not protected by the Geneva Convention. A reader responds to those comments as follows:

“I would like to expand on your comment about the media traitors and their treatment by the people. These traitors can move freely about this country without ever a concern for their own personal safety. What if the anger against these elite and their pawns reaches a boiling point and their mobility of reporting anywhere in this country is no longer an option. The public can stop their propaganda and force them to stay in their secured studios only (kind of like the Baghdad Green Zone).

“They at the moment believe they are still safe among us. (If I were a General fighting against them, I would make these enemy propagandists fear for their own safety and lives or kidnap them for millions and make the same elite pay us back the way they stole our money and used it against us.) It would be an effective military strategy and fund the resistance of criminal gangs who have a profit motive. Think of the Somali Pirates. It’s already working.

“I live in Northern Virginia and I’ll never forget the whole DC sniper thing. One media woman, Martha Raddatz (ABC news) I recall was absolutely terrified at the time for her own life when these two black men were having their turkey shoot on the public. That intrigued me quite. These media cowards fear death and for their own personal safety more than anything.

“They believe in no God so this is it for them, heaven on earth. Think how frightened guys like Tom Brokaw, Rivera, Mrs. Greenspan, or some other reporter would be if they feared for their own safety or being kidnapped. They would not travel anymore and be scared out of their minds. They’d be limited to DC and NY (How appropriate—the new American “Green” zone—as in green save the planet (grin).)

“It will also be unsafe soon if the economy is destroyed for all people to travel long distances by car (like I do driving to Florida a lot, which some day possibly I won’t be able to do) and it will devolve into dangerous crime like you see in places like Mexico or Panama. Gangs of thugs will force you over the side of the road, rob you, (possibly rape you if you are a woman) and then kill you. That is coming if this keeps up. Mad Max.”

It is reasonable to speculate that the author of this message is not alone, that many other Americans think the same way, Americans who are no longer impressed by television “celebrities.” And by the way, I have written for radio and television in New York, as you know, and I have guested on network shows, such as the Communist News Network’s “Cross Fire,” Maury Povich and Morton Downey, Jr. I did the old Joe Pyne show a few times. It’s no big deal. It is a world of strutting peacocks who do not deserve the name and is not at all impressive.

It is a paradoxical world. The vacuum heads who run it regard you with condescension and disgust, but they must spew forth from their protected compounds to “cover” the fabricated story. They must circulate among you. More, when they make a foray into your neighborhood, they do not come merely to ridicule.

They come quite literally to tear the country apart, to bring it to its knees, to prepare it for submission to a totalitarian world government. They hate and contemn everything you do and believe. As soon as they leave, their smile becomes a sneer. And their reverence for Hussein has exposed them more than ever.

Their problem is that – unlike top government and financial conspirators – these media traitors of whom Goebbels would be proud, travel without bodyguards. They are relatively unprotected and accessible. Anyone inclined to take a run at them could do so. We saw a hint of what I am warning about in the recent, national campaign, when Shallow Sean Hannitwerp literally had to run to escape the heroes from We Are Change.

Indeed, some years back, at the height of forced school busing, incensed Bostonians chased Teddy Kennedy down the street. The putrid stench got inside before the crowd was able to tear him apart. Yes, these were Boston Irish Catholics who keep electing him. Imagine how mad they were if they trying to kill their hero.

In view of the temper of the people, that kind of thing could increase. Imagine seeing Chris Matthews or Mrs. Alan Greenscum (Andrea Mitchell) or Geraldo or one of the morons from the “View,” or Mike Wallace, the scumbag whose show I used to write, running for their lives down Main Street. (See my book, Scumbags I Have Known: And Other Profundities, at

By the way, my book, Perestroika Sunset, is a thriller about a Soviet attempt to seize power in Washington by means of a coup, using the Prisoners Of War our government abandoned in South East Asia as the pawns. In the novel, repatriated POWS and family members kidnap the traitors who have abandoned their loved ones. One by one, the traitors disappear.

But there are no ransom notes. The families do not want money. There are no demands. The families know they would be useless. The perpetrators simply vanish, inspiring doubt and grinding frustration. Were they actually kidnapped, or did they deliberately disappear? Have they absconded with something? What is missing? Have they been in an accident? Are they lying unconscious in a ditch? Have they defected to the other side?

I hope it is unnecessary to say this, but, just in case, all this is fiction, in a novel, not advice, not a suggestion, nothing more than an exciting story. Perestroika Sunset is thoroughly grounded in history, but it is not a roman à clef. You can read the first chapter at

We are mad as h-e-c-k and we’re not going to take it any more. Turn off the network “news” and don’t buy the “newspapers.” They already are collapsing. Finish them off.

It's an interesting question and one pondered for years. I have come to the conclusion that those born after the 1960's are not patriotic citizens by the same definition as those born prior to the 60's. In fact, I've heard many 20, 30, and even 40-somethings claim that they hold no particular allegiance to this country, as they consider it to be imperialistic, dishonest, exploitative, and devious.

But we older citizens must realize that the younger generations have not had the benefit of time, wisdom, and many have not had the experience of warfare and soldiering, nor have they had the benefit of an educational system that taught "Republic" vs. "Democracy." They believe their country to be a democracy, and at the same time, know very well that it is not. They have also been raised on a steady dose of unscrupulous and lying governance, and this they know, as well.

Younger generations are not enamored with Capitalism, politics, democracy, or faith. Today's younger generations are largely atheistic by educational design and disgusted with leadership, religion, and their historical lies. Sometimes we tend to think they are simply disinterested and apathetic, but the fact is they are all too savvy when it comes to the sick joke of all forms of aristocratic governance.

The older generations, the ones who spearheaded the globalist movement, albeit by manipulation, and also the resulting protest movement, are also disappointed people. We were betrayed by the ones we elected — betrayed. It's a bitter pill to swallow, because much like our younger countrymen, we did not act responsibly with our freedoms. We took them for granted, and then became enamored of televised entities, who turned out to be liars, thieves, cheaters, and conquerors. We also fully supported the fully corrupt 2-Party system.

We, the older generations, and the largest voting body in America, elected and re-elected the men and women who, year by year, Executive Order after Executive Order, Signing Statement by Signing Statement, Directive by Directive, and Act by Act, disassembled the united States of America and the American Constitution. And now, the younger generations think of us as ignorant, manipulated, and corrupted fools. Truth hurts, doesn't it?

The Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers have a heavy burden to bear, because it was under our watch that the deceivers smiled and grinned their ways into full-blown destruction mode. We elected the Socialist globalists into our nation's most powerful positions, or to put it more honestly and plainly, we elected the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations over and over and over again (and continuing to do so), to our economic and historic demise.

Equally, and in many ways, the Greatest Gen and Boomers sold their souls for appearances, credit, luxury retirement, and in imitation of the elite. It's a sad state of affairs, a bitter story, and a guilt that is undeniably ours to bear. But, forward we must go, and we need our youth to help us, though they have every substantial reason not to trust our naivety, our politics, or our decisions. After all, we dumped this terrible mess on their shoulders and told them they were living the good life. Now they are paying the price for our ignorance with their lives in foreign nations and strapped to insurmountable and lifelong debt. America did not start corroding 5 years ago. It's been corroding for a century, and that places the blame and the burden on us. We were supposed to prize, cherish, and protect our freedom. We were supposed to take care of our nation. Instead, we stood 100% behind her destroyers. Many of us still do.

Many younger Americans believe America needs to change — completely and permanently. Hence, the Socialists, who were always around our corners, simply walked in and set up charismatic shop — as in the entire American public school system, the "environmental," land-stealing, land trust movement, and the “greater good” morality to manipulate the masses straight out of their rights to FREEDOM. And many of the middle to upper-middle class Americans, particularly those who instantly fell for the "eco-friendly" and policed communities, are now so financially polluted that they can think of nothing but their dire straits, their detracting screen addictions, and their pretend country clubs and day-spas. In my book, these people are out to lunch, vacant, and unreachable. Equally, they live in America's forthcoming wasteland (and I do mean forthcoming).

Again, I say to the Greatest Generation and the Boomers, we have an impossible task before us — the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, Agenda 21 and sustainability, the global land trust scams, corporate and financial dictatorship, all-enCOMPASSing privacy infringements, a transformed and gullible American population, and so very many global enemies — of which, now, we know why. What are the chances to regain our Republic and our Constitution, while we face "internationalized" policing forces, super viruses, and breaking news pandemics? Slim chances...but try, we must. America was slaughtered under our watch. She was.

So, the original question — do American people care if America ends? Today, I'd say the answer is 50/50 at best, but that may be another stupid assumption on this gray-haired lady's part. God knows I've made more foolish political assumptions than this, but to my countrymen of all ages, let us disappoint them, for they have always counted on our ignorance, our apathy, our cultural addictions, and their masterful propaganda. We must disappoint them. We have no choice. And to our younger American generations, please accept our sincerest apologies. We were wrong — albeit manipulated — and incredibly stupid. Please, don't follow suit.

November 20, 2008

“The drums sound with measured beat; the Sun sets slowly with diminished heat. Listen to the dirge and mark the cadence of a song of death for a once great nation.”

One of the fun things about writing a column is the receipt of mail, good and bad, in response to my articles. Those who understand the message and have pertinent arguments and constructive comment are a blessing and greatly appreciated. Their comments are most often stimulating, interesting and nearly always challenging and enlightening.

The nescient few who write to vent their spleen and pour out a completely illiterate, unlettered and mindless invective can be weirdly entertaining. Given the bizarreness of their messages it is sad to think that the writers of these are the finished product of the American Education system. When I read these offerings I continually wonder when and how the writer escaped the asylum. It is scary to think that those who are so inimically disposed might be running around with a fingernail file in their pocket. I can imagine that their Kindergarten teachers appended their report cards with such messages as “fails to color within the lines” and “does not get along well with classmates.” These do help me to partially understand the Transportation Security Administration’s obsession with penknives and small manicuring implements. Remember I said partially as I am not altogether sure that many of those of the TSA are not often recruited from among this very segment of society.

Then we have those who are enthusiastically enamored of their self-perceived wit and intelligence, it is these who write to me messages that they think to be wildly clever and endearingly cute. Witness the following example: "Now that we have a wonderful new president why don't you, and those like you, leave the country." The same was written in a hugely large and boldface font. Oftentimes I find that the larger the font, of a perverse message, the smaller the mind behind it. Undisciplined messages seem to come from undisciplined minds. It always amazes me how these dimwits claim sole ownership of the country, it is analogous to saying, “Who allowed you to be born into my world?”

Now let’s extrapolate from that silly little statement. Without the slightest bit of a doubt it has never occurred to the rocket scientist who sent this message that if the nearly half of the population who comprise the most productive and giving members of society who most likely voted against the self-proclaimed messiah of this person’s adulation and worship were to move from the country there would be no one to support the remaining non-productive half of the population. Clearly every willingly unemployed individual, the indigent by choice, and every bum looking for a handout were hog tied and dragged to the polls by the Obama cultists and registered to vote, very often multiple times under differing names. And while they were at it they also registered cadavers, pet dogs, pet cats and beady-eyed parrots.

And then, of course, we cannot discount the fact that there are many thousands of those parasitic human sponges out there that are perfectly capable of figuring out with no help from others that the Obamas’ of the system slaver at the chance to extract from the wages of the industrious and bestow what they have purloined upon the slothful. Ah yes, it was a campaign of which we can take great national pride if one is to believe the media. To quote Chris Matthews it must have just sent a little thrill up the leg of all the little Bolsheviks who live in our modern day la la land. More on Chris Matthews and his compatriots, those insufficiently cooked (half-baked), denizens of the national media later.

We continually hear from these changelings of their deep compassion for the disadvantaged and dispossessed of society. They spend millions of taxpayer dollars promoting boondoggle social programs and they prattle endlessly about entitlements, welfare, earned income tax credits, affirmative action, compassionate welfare and a myriad of other societal programs that are supposed to have the intended effect of making it a fail safe culture where without personal effort or individual initiative even the most indolent can enjoy the good life.

The truth of the matter is that there are those who are truly ambitious and do have work ethics who could use a hand up to cope with unavoidable serious financial hardship until they are on their feet and able to pull their own weight. Our despotic government in its typical blundering and unjust way has put into effect, through its numerous bureaucratic agencies, a labyrinth of glaringly inequitable hoops to jump through that have every appearance of being designed to inhibit any help to the truly necessitous while virtually dumping money on the intentionally lazy. And I know with a certainty that the readers of this message can think of many instances to substantiate what I have just written.

It is difficult to be inclined to the slightest wonderment at the defeat of John McCain and the Republican Party. This guy ran the most inept campaign in history. If I were a betting man I would bet that he was actually bribed by those with inimical vested interests to throw the campaign as a prizefighter throws a fight. To observe him as he cheerily gave critical campaign issues wide berth and heaped upon his political foe his sweet admiration and goodwill made one wonder why we were even having a campaign. The only seemingly heartfelt speech that he made in the entire campaign was his concession speech in which he smilingly and cheerfully acknowledged that he and Obama were of one mind, one heart and one soul. That speech left not a doubt or question about the fact that there is now no difference between Democrats and Republicans. I have written previously of the fact that the Republican Party has done more to enable the destruction of a once proud Republic than irreverent Democrats. I invite the reader to view that article.

McCain might just as well have conceded the election up front and saved everyone a lot of trouble. It would have spared the millions, who already knew what the outcome would be, the suffering they experienced through a maddening and utterly biased harangue and bombardment by the media every minute of every hour of every day. An additional upside to such a front end concession would have been that the Obama campaign wouldn’t have had to resort to all that underhanded and criminal chicanery in the raising of those millions of dollars in disguised illegal contributions, but then of course they wouldn’t have had any mad money to throw around.

I would like to use this column to thank those illegal contributors to Obama for all of the money that they clandestinely pumped into the system, but I can’t speak or write Arabic or Chinese. But, they will be gratified to know that their friends in the American media made out like bandits and put the funds to good use with a splendidly stupendous propaganda program. And, hey! The American people just had a ball following their self-proclaimed political messiah around the country to the various lavishly produced performances. With breasts swelling in exultation and their resounding cheers bouncing off the clouds, the frenzied worshippers leapt to the occasion in exuberance and with eager outstretched hands sought the hem of the garment of their political savior. These expensively choreographed spectaculars were reminiscent of the great Nuremberg rallies during which the German people also worshipped their chosen savior, Adolph Hitler.

The national media is a mirror into the soul of the nation, their truly abominable and soullessly depraved conduct throughout the course of the campaign was most certainly grist to the mill of the demonic interests that continuously pursue and advocate for a Godless society and a world-wide satanic kingdom. One could not detect even a scintilla of integrity and probity in the reporting by, and the conduct of, the majority of the media personages that so noxiously embellished the TV screens, airwaves, and printed pages of the major newspapers and publications with their perverse and perverted works. The ignominy and disgrace of their deliberate and evilly uncivilized endeavors was a taint upon not only their profession, but upon the entire nation.

Despite the fact that the country was rapidly descending into the tank during the entirety of the campaign nothing could divert the attention of the people from their worship at the feet of their newfound savior. The markets were toppled and corruption of the most contemptible kind brought down major Wall Street financial institutions, the debased policies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac executives brought the mortgage industry to its knees and businesses and corporations of long standing duration were forced into bankruptcy. The major American automobile manufacturers were near extinction and main street businesses were being eliminated by an inability to obtain capital, and yet the Obama worshippers soldiered on in feverish jubilance, undiminished adoration and blissful reverie. And while they poured out a religious devotion to their chosen, as to a deity, the American capitalist system bifurcated, wandered off into new avenues and crashed.

Presidential candidates, Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum and that distinguished comedic group the American Congress lent their greatly anemic talents to the task of saving Wall Street. With the help of that great poobah of the Order of the Skull and Bones, George Walker Bush, these mentally diminished heroes of the new age bent their backs and feeble minds to the task of creating a brand new and innovative version of socialism.

There would now be two recipient groups of the monies of a dwindling productive middle-class taken by the confiscate machinations of a now bolshevistic government. And the futures of our children, our children’s children and their offspring’s offspring were mortgaged far into the future.

It was resolved and settled that two determinate groups would now feed at the government trough to the detriment and sacrifice of working middle-class taxpayers. The first of these groups continues to be an old parasitic and ever prevalent collective of the habitually and volitionally indolent, while the new feeders at the public treasury’s buffet are the shame deficient corruptly rich whose criminal actions and greedy excesses drove their corporations into bankruptcy and negated the payment of untold billions of dollars to their creditors. That such would be the recipients of the fruits of the labors of truly diligent and productive Americans is a tragedy of unending consequence.

The minds of the American people are fogged and made vacuous and benumbed by spiritual decadence and by the chemical concoctions of the unrighteous and immoral pharmaceutical malefactors that reap billions through the commercialization of the unholy substances that rob the health of the minds and bodies of the deceived and the deluded who are enslaved by their products. A monstrously perfidious campaign, unquestionably enhanced by the FDA, by the national media, the medical community and the obscenely wealthy manufacturers of these pernicious essences has made this a drug soaked and sodden culture. Is it any wonder that the young do illegally that which their mentors of the adult world do legally, and that is to use drugs as a crutch and as a substitute for righteous and spiritually healthy pursuits.


“Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.” Isaiah 59.7

The United States has come to the point of inevitableness in regard to an ultimate, and perilously near, pending total destruction. Its ashes will be scattered to the winds and its once prosperous ways will be made desolate. Vultures will roost in the remains of its cities and putrefaction will embrace its once fertile lands. It is a nation of derelict minds and iniquitous pursuits, and the fruits of its unrighteousness are ripe for harvesting. Its people have followed crooked paths to their own destruction. And that destruction is fast upon us.

PART 1 of 2

By Marilyn Barnewall

November 28, 2008

To whom should we listen about banking, the stock market, the economy? There are so many differing analyses right now, it is difficult to know.

One opinion is that Wall Street is sitting on $50 plus trillion in leveraged assets and the United States government has a $5 to $6 trillion gross domestic product (GDP). There is, this opinion says, no way to avoid a total meltdown.

Today I read an analysis by Stratfor, whose opinion I respect tremendously. Stratfor says we must focus on the political realities, not the economy. Using this strategy, Stratfor had been correct in predicting many things Wall Street, the Treasury, the Fed, and economists around the world have missed. Stratfor says we will have an ugly, painful recession, but the “fall of the housing markets will be trumped by the size of the American economy.” They see the core problem as the fall of the housing markets and approach problem resolution from that perspective.

Like Stratfor, I believe it is right to look at things from the geopolitical perspective when defining our economic problems. Governments around the world are acting in tandem – that in and of itself is a rare occurrence – to “solve the financial crisis and prevent a meltdown.”

Unlike Stratfor, I do not believe the core of the geopolitical problem is the value of housing. I believe the core problem is a worldwide government bid to establish a global government. They have been trying to accomplish this since the early 1900s. The people of the world do not want it and so they must face crisis after crisis so potentially devastating to modern life they can be frightened into accepting what the world’s central banks want.

Now, in some quarters, making that kind of statement gets one labeled a “conspiracy nut.” Maybe I am a conspiracy nut. Maybe I’m not. Maybe those who prefer to look at the world through rose-colored glasses and see governments as solving problems rather than causing them are the conspiracy nuts. They conspire to trust governments around the world… until necks are safely held under the black boot of totalitarians.

What is the conspiracy that makes them rather than me “conspiracists” by definition?

They believe governments are good, not self-surviving totalitarian organizations that crave more and more power, more and more wealth. They believe the Federal Reserve is looking out for the American people… they even think the Fed is part of the government.

All I can say is, when one “nut” has more evidence on his or her side than another “nut,” the one with the least evidence must concede defeat and accept the title “conspiracy nut.” It is obvious that I believe I have more evidence on my side of this argument than do those who think governments around the world are driven to do good for the people rather than oppressing them more and more.

Let’s go back in time.

How was our financial services industry structured? This is an important question because the regulations in place from the 1930s until the 1970s were put in place to protect America from another Great Depression.

Savings and loans were established as the primary underwriters of American mortgages. When granting a mortgage, it is a 20 to 30 years financial commitment by a lender. Because the world of business and consumer banking moves quickly, and because the cost of funds are volatile, S&Ls were established for the specific purpose of making long-term mortgage loans. Commercial banks did not make them. And, there was no problem with bank liquidity because bank loan commitments are relatively short-term by comparison to mortgages. A commercial bank must know from day-to-day that it has sufficient funds on hand to deal with business and consumer borrowing needs… difficult to do when your deposits are tied up for 30-year mortgages.

We had Regulation Q. It said that savings and loans could offer one-quarter of a percent more in savings interest than commercial banks. S&Ls were required to pay 5.50 for long-term savings and 5.25 percent for short-term deposits. Commercial banks were required to pay 5.0 percent on short-term savings and 5.25 percent on “time” savings – like a certificate of deposit or a “time” savings account.

We also had commercial banks. Their primary business was to take in deposits for checking and savings deposits and loan that money out within the community at a profitable rate. By doing so, they stimulated business and, thus, job growth. They were not allowed to branch across state lines. In many states (like Colorado, Illinois and Texas), they were not allowed to branch within the state where a bank’s corporate headquarters was located. When did that change and why?

In the mid-1970s, the Comptroller of the Currency (who has no authority to change the laws passed by Congress… its job is to oversee regulatory control, not change it) issued an opinion that banks could become bank holding companies. A bank holding company in non-branch banking states (called unit banking states) could, in the Comptroller’s opinion, open other banks under the same bank name provided that each new bank opened had its own Board of Directors, its own letterhead. It had to be independent from the large bank that funded it.

The creation of branch banks in non-branching states was a necessary piece of the plan to implement interstate branching which would come later.

In Colorado, Governor Roy Romer all but promised the independent bankers in the state that he would not support in-state branch banking. The Colorado House passed House Bill 1111 banning interstate branch banking on February 7, 1995. On February 21, 1995, the Senate approved its version of the same legislation... banning interstate branch banking in Colorado.

However, after receiving a telephone call from President Bill Clinton (and, it is rumored, from NationsBank -- now Bank of America), Governor Romer decided he wanted branch banking.
Clinton told Romer that all sorts of calamities would befall Colorado banks if the branching legislation at the state level did not get passed. Romer passed that information on to Tim Foster.
Foster was the Colorado House Speaker and pushed the legislature, having been told Colorado would be in violation of the law if the legislation did not pass. I called Foster right after the legislation passed and asked him what in the world he thought he was doing, violating the laws of the State of Colorado. He is the one who told me why he, a Republican, became so supportive of getting legislation passed for a Democrat governor. The above story is a direct quote from Foster.

Shortly after the above transpired, Roy Romer was made the head of the Democrat National Committee where he served for several years. Later he accepted a highly-placed position with the Department of Education in California. Foster has been the President of Mesa State College for a number of years.

Why did Bill Clinton make that phone call to Governor Roy Romer? Because. The interstate banking plan could not be implemented unless all 50 states accepted branch banking and it was part of an overall plan to implement the credit crisis we have today.

Once all 50 states allowed branch banking, the Comptroller decided it was okay for banks to use bank holding companies to establish banks in other states… a direct violation of the McFadden Act. Suddenly, we saw First Interstate Banks all over the western United States. We saw NationsBank of North Carolina owning banks in Florida and Citibank moved into California and Arizona. Until this time, the McFadden Act prevented interstate branch banking – intrastate branch banking laws were controlled by each state. To my knowledge, the McFadden Act has never been over-turned… just ignored by the Congress.

The Honorable Louis T. McFadden, Congressman from Pennsylvania, leveled charges at the Federal Reserve Board on the floor of Congress that would have made the most aggressive conspiracy theorist blush.

McFadden accused the Federal Reserve of swindling the U.S. Treasury, of conspiring with their foreign principals (central banks in other nations) and others to defraud the American government. Thus, the charges I would make against the Federal Reserve in 2008 were first made in 1932 by a U.S. Congressman.

As if that were not enough, McFadden further told his compatriots on the House floor that the Fed had “…robbed the U.S. government and the people of the United States by their theft and sale of the gold reserves of the U.S.”

On June 10, 1932, Congressman McFadden launched a twenty-five minute tirade against the Fed. Some of his remarks:

"Mr. Chairman, we have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a government board, has cheated the government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt.”

McFadden continued: “The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over.

“This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.”

I would make those same charges today.

On May 23, 1933 - less than a year after his 1932 tirade - Congressman McFadden brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, the Comptroller of the Currency and the United States Treasury. He charged them with "numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, “conspiracy, fraud, unlawful conversion, and treason."

The petition for Articles of Impeachment was referred to the House Judiciary Committee, but no action was ever taken by the Congress. It was never rejected or acted upon. Looking at Congressional records, it appears McFadden’s charges are still pending against the Fed.

McFadden saw the Federal Reserve and the nationalization of our banks as a great threat to the freedom and the individual wealth of the American people. In 1927, he authored the McFadden Act and fought hard to get it passed by the House and the Senate.

It’s purpose: To prevent interstate branch banking.

McFadden felt he could hold what he perceived as a power-hungry Federal Reserve in check. He thought he could keep them from becoming too powerful. The way he did it was to limit the banking industry’s ability to establish branch banks over state lines.

For almost 70-years, this Act pre-vented interstate branch banking.

The waters are very murky, indeed, as to whether interstate branch banking legislation is legal. It may violate federal law... the McFadden Act of 1927, and the National Bank Act of 1863. I can’t say I have the greatest understanding of how federal law works, but I always thought that you could not write a new federal law that contradicts an old federal law without repealing the old law.

Back to what we used to have and why it’s important:

We had the Glass Steagall Act. Actually, there were two Glass Steagall Acts, but the one with the most bang for bank bucks was Glass Steagall II and it is to that I refer herein. It was passed in 1933 and the official title is the Banking Act of 1933

During the Great Depression, Congress undertook to examine how conflicts of interest existed in some commercial banks because of their involvement in securities. Even fraud was discovered. Glass Steagall II built a brick wall between the activities of commercial banks and investment banks.

Investment banks like Merrill Lynch, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs did not take deposits like commercial banks and savings and loans. They were not commercial banks. Their entire job in the universe was to sell stocks in America’s publicly-traded companies. Commercial banks were prevented from selling securities or making investment recommendations.

The above reflects how America’s financial industry was structured until the 1970s. Part II of this article will explain how the safety walls put in place have been eliminated, one brick at a time and, from the author’s point of view, very intentionally. Article II will explain how the changes to the safe structure that kept our economy safe for so many years were eliminated – and why. Article II will explain whose wealth has increased dramatically as a result of the change.
