Where Nations Go to Die
You say “stimulus,” I hear “syphilis.”

By Mark Steyn

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, is on TV explaining the (at this point the congregation shall fall to its knees and prostrate itself) “stimulus.” “How,” asks the lady from CBS, “does $335 million in STD prevention stimulate the economy?”

“I’ll tell you how,” says Speaker Pelosi. “I’m a big believer in prevention. And we have, er, there is a part of the bill on the House side that is about prevention. It’s about it being less expensive to the states to do these measures.”

Makes a lot of sense. If we have more STD prevention, it will be safer for loose women to go into bars and pick up feckless men, thus stimulating the critical beer and nuts and jukebox industries. To do this, we need trillion-dollar deficits, which our children and grandchildren will have to pay off—but, with sufficient investment in prevention measures, there won’t be any children or grandchildren, so there’s that problem solved.

The more interviews Speaker Pelosi gives explaining how vital the STD industry is to restarting the U.S. economy, the more I find myself hearing “syphilis” every time she says “stimulus.” In late September, America was showing the first signs of “primary stimulus”—a few billion lesions popping up on the rarely glimpsed naughty bits of the economy: the subprime mortgage racket, the leverage kings. Now, the condition has metastasized in a mere four months into the advanced stages of “tertiary stimulus,” with trillions of hideous, ever more inflamed pustules sprouting in every nook and cranny as the central nervous system of the body politic crumbles into total insanity—until it seems entirely normal for the second-in-line of presidential succession to be on TV gibbering away about how vital the federalization of condom distribution is to economic recovery.

The rules in this new “post-partisan” era are pretty simple: If the Democratic Party wants it, it’s “stimulus.” If the Republican Party opposes it, it’s “politics”—as in headlines like this: “Obama Urges GOP To Keep Politics To A Minimum On Stimulus.” These are serious times: As the President says, it’s the worst economic crisis since the Thirties. So politicians need to put politics behind them and immediately lavish $4.19 billion on his community-organizing pals at the highly inventive “voter registration” group ACORN for “neighborhood stabilization activities.”

“Neighborhood stabilization activities.” That sounds like a line item from the Baath Party budget when Saddam sends the lads in to gas the Kurds. What does it mean in a non-totalitarian sense? Do you need a federally subsidized condom to do it? If so, will a pathetic $4.19 billion be enough?

“Stimulus” comes from the verb stimulare, which is Latin for “transfer massive sums of money from what remains of the dynamic sector of the economy to the special interests of the Democratic Party.” No, hang on, my mistake. Stimulare means “to goad.” And, on that front, the Democrats are doing an excellent job. They’ve managed to goad 58 percent of the American people into opposing the “stimulus” package. They’ve managed to goad all 117 Republicans in the House into unpacking their mothballed cojones and voting against the bill. And they’ve managed to goad the rest of the world into ending the Obama honeymoon in nothing flat. Headline from the London Daily Telegraph: “US-EU Trade War Looms As Barack Obama Bill Urges ‘Buy American.’ ”

That would be the provision in the Senate bill prohibiting any foreign-made goods from being used in “stimulus” projects. So, if you own a rubber plantation in Malaysia and you’re hoping for a piece of Nancy Pelosi’s condom action, forget it. The EU Trade Commissioner is outraged at the swaggering cowboy Obama shooting from the hip and unilaterally banning European goods from American soil. But so are American companies such as General Electric. Bill Lane, an executive honcho with Caterpillar (the tenth biggest U.S. investor in the United Kingdom), says, “We are students of history. A major reason a very deep recession turned into the Great Depression was the fact that countries turned inward.” Ah, yes. The Buy American Act of 1933. How’d that work out?

Even without Speaker Pelosi talking STD on the evening news, there is danger here for the new administration. Setting aside the more messianic effusions (“We needed him. And out of that great need,” gushed Maya Angelou, “Barack Obama came.”) as unbecoming to the freeborn citizens of a constitutional republic, it seems clear that large numbers of people voted for this president because they wanted something different, something other than “politics as usual.” Not just something pseudo-different like the dreary maverickiness of John McCain “reaching across the aisle” (one of those dead phrases no one outside the Beltway gives a hoot about), but something really different. But the “stimulus” package is just politics as usual with a few extra zeroes on the end. Will you notice anything? No. Don’t get your hopes up. If you’re broke now, you’ll be broke in October. The Congressional Budget Office estimates only 25 percent of it will be spent by early next year. The other 75 percent is as stimulating as the gal in the Nancy Pelosi Pussycat Lounge telling you she had such a good time she’s penciled in a second date for spring 2010. A third of all the spending won’t come until after 2011.

In a media age, politics is a battle of language, and “stimulus” is too good a word to cede to porked-up statist hacks. “Stimulus” has to stimulate—i.e., it’s short-term, like, say, an immediate cut in payroll taxes that will put real actual money in your pocket in next month’s paycheck. That way, you don’t need to wait for ACORN: You can start “stabilizing” your own “neighborhood” right now.

But, if this fraudulent “stimulus” does pass, it will, in fact, de-stimulate, and much more than the disastrous protectionist measures of the Thirties did: Back then, America was dealing with a far less globalized economy, and with far fewer competitors. “In the long run, we are all dead,” Lord Keynes, the newly fashionable economist, famously said. But, if this bill passes, in the medium term, we’re all dead. It’s a massive expansion of the state in the same direction that has brought sclerosis to Europe. A report issued last week in London found that government spending now accounts for 49 percent of the UK economy—and in the Celtic corners of the kingdom the state’s share of the economy is way higher, from 71.6 percent in Wales to 77.6 percent in Northern Ireland. In the western world, countries that were once the crucible of freedom are slipping remorselessly into a thinly disguised serfdom in which an ever-higher proportion of your assets are annexed by the state as super-landlord. Big government is where nations go to die—not in Keynes’ “long run,” but sooner than you think.

January 28, 2009

There was big news out of the U.S. Senate on Monday evening but the major media were not paying much attention. By approving exposed tax cheat Timothy Geithner as President Obama’s Treasury Secretary, the Democratic Party was confirming and advertising itself as the party of Wall Street.

One day earlier, during an appearance on the CBS “Face the Nation” program, Vice President Joe Biden said the Wall Street Banks may need more than the $700 billion they have already been voted. He sounded sympathetic to their cause.

Wall Street control of the Democratic Party may come as a surprise or shock to those who have been led to believe over the years by the liberal media that the Republican Party is the party of fat cats, rich people, and special interests. But the vote count for Geithner, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, speaks for itself. Of the 60 votes in favor, 50 came from Democrats (including independent Senator Joe Lieberman). Only four Democrats (including independent Bernie Sanders) voted against Geithner.

Wall Street wanted Geithner because he had already been deeply involved in the bailouts of the big banks and had powerful political connections to such groups as the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, the Group of Thirty, and the Council on Foreign Relations. In short, this former employee of Kissinger Associates was a Wall Street favorite.

But how could Obama, a controversial figure with a revolutionary Marxist background, communist connections, and socialist worldview, emerge as the favorite of Wall Street interests? The short answer is that he is the perfect front man.

As noted, the American people have been conditioned to believe that the Republican Party is the party of the rich. The Democrats are supposed to be representatives of the working man. Obama has to have figured that he can serve Wall Street and socialism at the same time.

The ploy has worked before. Meticulous researcher Antony Sutton’s 1974 book, Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, documented a link between certain banking interests and the Bolshevik cause. In Obama’s case, it is the China connection that is most relevant. Goldman Sachs, his major Wall Street backer, has had an exclusive financial relationship with the Communist government of China which has benefited both China and Goldman Sachs—but not the United States.

Geithner comes out of the same mold as Henry Paulson, Bush’s Treasury Secretary. In fact, they worked together on the Wall Street bailout. Geithner is not the “change” the people voted for, but if the major media conceal the true facts, then Obama and his Wall Street backers may be able to get away with it. It is almost as brilliant a deception as the pork-laden pro-government “stimulus” bill that has been labeled the “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”

While Senate Democrats were Geithner’s main cheerleaders, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch also spoke in favor of the nomination. “I am aware this nominee is not free of controversy,” he deadpanned. He also disclosed that his office had “received many calls from Utahns” upset over the nomination.

Hatch said, however, that he weighed his tax problems with his “impressive education, experience, and intelligence” and “outstanding record,” and concluded that he should be confirmed. He said that Geithner had a role in “crafting the Government’s response to the financial crisis,” as if this were a factor in his favor.

In a late-breaking development, media are now reporting that Mark Patterson, a registered lobbyist for Goldman Sachs until April 11, 2008, is in line to serve as chief of staff to Geithner. Patterson’s lobbying was first reported by the National Journal. Goldman Sachs has received $10 billion in bailout money.

As we revealed in our AIM Report, Wall Street and the Rise of Obama, the new President has been heavily backed by Wall Street interests, especially Goldman Sachs. More recently, Kenneth P. Vogel of documented in a story headlined, “Wall Street Invested Heavily in Obama,” that the list of top donors to the political campaigns of Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel “includes many firms at the heart of the financial meltdown—including taxpayer-funded bailout beneficiaries Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America…”

He explained, “The top three corporate employers of donors to the new White House came from the world of high finance: Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and JPMorgan. UBS AG, Lehman Brothers, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse Group also were among the top 30.Those nine firms’ executives, employees and political action committees have given a combined $5.1 million to the campaigns of Obama, Biden and Emanuel since 1998, when campaign finance records became searchable electronically.”

Vogel noted that Geithner is “one of several appointees for administration economic posts who are protégés of former Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, an Obama adviser and, until recently, a Citigroup director.” Another, he noted, is Gary Gensler, a “Rubin acolyte” and former top Goldman Sachs official who has been picked as chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

As Geithner moves to the Treasury Department, William Dudley, another former Goldman Sachs official, has been selected as the new President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Dudley, who has been head of markets at the New York Fed, is described by Bloomberg News as “an architect” of the Federal Reserve’s role in the Wall Street bailout. During some of his time at Goldman Sachs, he was “Bob Rubin’s senior economic adviser,” one bio says. However, his New York Fed bio makes no mention of the Rubin connection.

On the Senate floor, in speaking about Geithner and his history of tax cheating, Republican Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma said, “It is one of those things that makes people so angry about their government. The man who wants to be in charge of the IRS messed up with his taxes and got a pass from the Senate. Now, for as much as we talk about leveling the playing field, it sure looks as if we do not walk the walk.”

Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia said, “A week ago today, last Monday, I was coming through the Atlanta airport, and a gentleman walked up to me and introduced himself. He said: ‘I am a retired Internal Revenue Service employee who was going to send you an e-mail today, and you saved me from having to send you that e-mail. During my tenure at the Internal Revenue Service, I was called upon to fire three separate people who committed exactly the same offense as Mr. Geithner committed.’”

Rejecting Democratic claims that Geithner deserved confirmation because he had financial expertise, Republican Senator John Thune of South Dakota said, “There are lots of smart, talented, and experienced people who got us into this economic mess.”

Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia said the tax cheating “seriously undermines Mr. Geithner’s credibility to be the Nation’s top tax enforcement officer. It suggests serious negligence on his part and creates the impression of someone trying to game the system. Mr. Geithner showed poor judgment in waiting so long to pay these taxes, and then doing so only because it became a political necessity. Certainly most American taxpayers do not have that luxury.”

Senator Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said, “in the past, nominees who had tax issues as serious as this nominee’s, and some who have had less serious issues, have not attained Senate confirmation. I feel it is improper to judge this nominee by a different standard. I realize that economic times are tough right now, but, if anything, that should be an incentive for us to raise our standards and not lower them. Finally, I believe we also need to treat all people in a consistent manner. The same Internal Revenue Code applies to everyone regardless of whether someone is a well-known Wall Streeter or a student earning minimum wage.”

Grassley added, “Many people around the country who have not satisfied their tax obligations have been caught by the IRS, as this nominee was for tax years 2003 and 2004. Many people end up having their houses seized, bank accounts frozen, and other assets taken by the Government to pay their tax debts. Some people even go to jail.”

Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama, said, “I believe the American people want a Secretary of the Treasury who was not in the middle of the problem in New York as head of the Federal Reserve Bank when it occurred and who gave no warning to the American people whatsoever that this was about to happen.”

Senator Tom Harkin, Democrat of Iowa, said, “As president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Mr. Geithner was a key regulator of the large, mostly New York-based financial institutions that have been at the center of this meltdown. Their reckless practices—reckless practices—have brought America’s financial system to its knees, pitching our economy into what could be the longest, deepest recession since the Great Depression.”

Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, said, “How can we tell the taxpayers that they are expected to comply fully with our tax laws when these laws have been treated so cavalierly by the person who would lead the Treasury Department and, ultimately, the Internal Revenue Service, when he was applying them to himself?”

The vote on Geithner follows:

YEAS ? 60

Nelson (FL)
Nelson (NE)
Udall (CO)
Udall (NM)

NAYS ? 34

The messiah of the disordered new world is now president of the United States.

With eyes wide shut Americans elected Barack Hussein Obama even though it’s doubtful he was even eligible for the office; even though he promised bona fide socialism; even though virtually every “change’” his supporters thought they were voting for likely won’t transpire; and even though changes that probably will take place will be horrifying.

If you made it through the media’s servile flattery of candidate Obama, and then the wild-eyed hysteria of the inauguration, then a little mirth is in order, as a distraction from the pain of all this.

We can take a break from the Jumbotron Obama-as-savior coverage to play a little game. The rules are simple - you ask an Obamaniac a question. For every wrong answer you get to gloat. Tally up the points and you’re the easy winner of the game. But don’t get too excited. You’ll win the game, but in the end we lose our country.

First Question:

“Did you vote for Obama to see an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?”

A “YES” answer means you score a point. This is where you mention that Barack Obama has been breaking a sweat back pedaling on his promise to bring the boys and toys home from the unconstitutional and immoral wars being fought in those countries. (For the record, however, Obama has stated “I don’t sweat. You ever see me sweat?”)

During the campaign, Obama tried to draw a contrast between himself and his Republican opponent saying he’d “bring US troops home within 16 months” of his inauguration. Before he ever raised his hand and swore to uphold the Constitution, he had added a qualifying phrase saying he would “remove our combat troops from Iraq in 16 months with the understanding that it might be necessary - likely to be necessary- to retain a residual force.” He added “ It’s also critical that we recognize the situation in Afghanistan has been worsening.”

He wants to send more troops. 70,000 more troops there.

Now that you’ve scored one, it’s time for extra game points- mention Obama’s new Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who promised a “departure from the Bush foreign policy” while she was campaigning to be president. How did she plan on doing that when she voted for the Iraq war and supported the Afghanistan surge?

You can now add that Obama’s left hand man, former Illinois Congressman and Democratic Congressional Campaign Commission Chairman Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel (whose family name was Auerbach) has been called the “most powerful voice in the House of Representatives.” Rahm has been such a persistent war monger that while 60 % of the country is against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he made it his business to oppose and torpedo every single Democrat who opposed the wars (that we now wage at Israel’s behest) during party primaries. In fact, jokes circulating include possible bumper stickers we might see in an Obama administration that read ‘Invade and Bomb with Hillary and Rahm’.

Rahm Emanuel, former Clinton aide, is the guy who said: "All Americans between the ages of 18 and 25 should be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic civil defense training and community service." (Wonder if he read the 13th Amendment to the Constitution which states “involuntary servitude” is a no-no “except as a punishment for a crime.” Rahm’s right in step with Obama’s plan to force middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of “community service” per year.

Here goes the country’s first (half) Black president reinstating slavery.

And while Obama’s talking up “job creation,” his boy Rahm was head cheerleader to get the Democrats to buy into the job-destroying NAFTA passed over a decade ago.

Politico says Rahm “has the soul of an inside Washington operator.”

While Obama’s mamma’s baby’s daddy was a Kenyan, Rahm’s father was an Israeli and a member of a Zionist group called Irgun. Oddly enough, Rham means ‘lofty’ in Hebrew. Others call him “Rahmbo.”

So far you should be racking up an easy win in this game, so let’s keep playing!

Next question:

“Obama supporter, are you sure you voted for a “change” to end status quo- business as usual Washington-insider politics? This is where you continue to explain that every single Obama cabinet member is a firmly entrenched, deep down and dirty District player.

Name names like Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve Board Chairman tapped to lead the new president’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Volcker’s been at this since 1952 when he went to work for the Fed (which Constitutionalists agree ought to be abolished posthaste for causing the economic mess we’re in.)

Volcker is a founding member, along with David Rockefeller, of the global elite Trilateral Commission. Volcker is also a former director of the United Nations Association of the USA which promoted more U.N. funding and power, and therefore less sovereignty for the U.S.

Then there’s Obama’s pick for Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner who was “careless” about not paying $34,000 in taxes. (Oops, my bad.) Just try being that “careless” and see what the IRS will do to us little people.

Stop here because by now you’ve made your point and if you were to continue to list the bona fides of the rest of Obama’s new D.C. posse you might see a grown man or woman cry.

Next question:

“Obama supporter, did you vote for Barrack so he could put an end to the egregious assault on the 4th amendment that Bush was known for when he sanctioned eavesdropping on Americans, though that’s clearly considered a no-no in our land of the free?
Now you point to the fact during his time in the Senate, Barack Obama endorsed Warrant-less Wiretaps, okayed in the so-called Protect America Act which authorized Congress and the president to poke around in our emails and on our phone calls without court orders.

(Maybe that’s how they do it in Kenya and Israel.)

Now, pack up your game and go home. But before you do, remind your vanquished opponent that in addition to all you’ve pointed out about the so-called “change’ they thought they were voting for, the new president’s economic “stimulus” plan will not bring any positive “change” either. It can never work, because, while he was bashing Sarah Palin and McCain on the “Bridge to nowhere,” now Obama will apparently preside over lots of “bridges to nowhere” in make- work programs that didn’t help during the last depression and won’t help now.

Tally up your points and leave your opponent with the words of the late minister and three-term president of the Southern Baptist Convention Adrian Rogers who wrote:

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Oh, one more thing. Before you gloat too terribly much, remember, the president who just left office leaving a catastrophic mess was a Republican and the man you likely voted for for president was virtually identical to Obama on the major issues like the war and the Bailouts and immigration.

Unless, of course, you voted for a third party candidate.

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

Time and again over the years, I have heard patriots enumerate our strengths: we, the true American people of all kinds, vastly outnumber the relatively few totalitarian Socialist conspirators at the top; we are armed to the eyeballs; we have the U.S. Constitution, we are more educated about the threat to all this than any other people. Time and again, I have heard these same patriots wonder why, then, we are losing.

We are losing. Despite our best efforts, the present usurper in the Oval Office is an illegal alien Communist. The Congress, our economy, our media and all our other institutions are firmly in the hands of the Conspiracy for World Government. The Conspiracy is preparing to collapse them. It now becomes not at all fanciful to discuss the possible dissolution of the United States. Why? How could this horrific thing happen?

Look again at a piece I did about the Great Siege of Malta in 1565. The Christians won. Why? Because they got mean. Because they fought all out, with no apology. Because they fought to the death. Why did they fight to the death? Because they knew that had they not, they would have been killed. The besieging Muslims would have exterminated them. They fought like that because they had nothing to lose.

I believe we are losing the battle for America now because, although we have everything we need to win, not enough Americans understand what we are fighting. Too many think we are fighting traditional business corruption. They think we are fighting greed. The two-party system has deluded many into the belief that we are fighting Democruds. Silky front men intone daily, “If we elect enough Republicans, the problem would be solved.”

Others, more sophisticated, more knowledgeable, recognize that we are fighting something more than greed; they see that we are fighting the corporate state, also known as Fascism, a Mussolini combination of multinational corporations and government, greed on steroids, stomping all competition. Yes, that is closer to what we fight but it still falls short. It still doesn’t explain the enemy.

What we are fighting right now is a literal battle to the death. The man with the gun isn’t saying, “Your money or your life.” I wish he were. He is saying, “Your money and your life!” He wants it all, your money, your property, your country, everything. He is coming to kill you. How do we know that? We know it because he says so. Compare the legal terms “assault” and “battery.”

The latter involves physically touching the victim. The former does not. You can commit an assault by telling someone you are going to brain him. If you say so convincingly, perhaps holding a Louisville Slugger when you say it, you have committed an assault. So it is prudent to believe what people say they will do. Well, what does the man we are fighting say he will do?

Because you are the world’s most knowledgeable readers, I need only remind you that the conspirators for world government say they intend to exterminate a huge portion of today’s human beings. They say so at their meetings, among them the regular confabs hosted by world famous environmentalist Mike Gorbachev, former Soviet dictator and boss of the KGB.

The conspirators who attend those meetings have ample power to do what they say. They include the likes of George H.W. Bush, Ted “the Traitor” Turner and so on. At sessions of the Gorbachev Foundation, they debate the percentage of people they should kill. At one session, a professor opted for 90%. Moderates held out for 30%, a mere 1,200,000,000 of the earth’s present population of six billion.

How would they do that? They haven’t yet said, but we do know that Hitler and Mao, who were pretty good at it, succeeded only in killing millions. We do know about the Halliburton civilian prison camps around the country, fully staffed, garnished with barbed wire, waiting, waiting. We do know about the coffins. We do know about the lists. We can still enjoy on You Tube the practice gun grabbing sessions after Katrina in New Orleans. Remember the old lady with the pea shooter and the California SWATsters who took her down?

There is also the hallowed legal principle that a man is presumed to intend the natural consequences of his acts. If you hit somebody in the head with that Louisville Slugger, the cops won’t buy your explanation that you didn’t realize the blow would fracture his skull. They will say you should have known that and take you downtown. So what are the natural consequences of the conspiracy’s acts?

Gradually but steadily the conspirators are denying you energy. Without sufficient energy, you could not run your business. Indeed, you could not survive. They are registering your animals and taking control of your food. They are confiscating your pensions and destroying your dollar. They are taking your property. They are deporting your jobs. They are preparing to disarm you. If they succeed in all this you would be a slave. Your slavery would make Nat Turner’s Old Plantation look like a five star hotel. Of course, you could get lucky; you could be one of those they decide to exterminate.

They do not care about the facts. They do not care how many thousands of genuine scientists say “global warming” is a fraud. Facts in their lexicon are a waste of time. “Global warming” is their plan and they will implement it, come h-e-c-k or pure water. We have a biracial usurper in the Oval Office – elected by white votes – but they maintain their imposition of “white guilt” without pause, as if Simon Legree has been elected.

At the recent coronation of Also Known As, Marxist preacher Joseph Lowery, founder with Communist Martin King of the red Southern Christian Leadership Conference, spoke from the dais of “that day when black will not be asked to get in back . . . and when white will embrace what is right.”

Hey, Joe, this is 2009! Did you know? Black is not only in front; it’s on top. Notice that, according to this lifelong punk pseudo-preacher, white still isn’t right. Hey, Joe, did you know where you were? Did you remember that white elected Also Known As to be emperor? Here is proof that the race pimps will never let whitey up. After all, it’s such a lucrative racket. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right, Joe?

Along these lines, there is the Communist News Network’s orange-haired moron Larry King. Of course he is senile. Did you see his interview of one of the surviving Beatles? Larry forgot which one he was talking to and addressed him as one of the others. Needless to say his galaxy famous guest was offended.

Larry is 75 and working on marriage number seven. He’s a serial polygamist. Recently, he talked about his eight year old son, Cannon. Kudos, Larry! Did you do that yourself, or did you have help? Cannon “now says that he would like to be black. I’m not kidding. He said there’s a lot of advantages. Black is in. . . .” If black is in, doesn’t that mean white must be out?

There is also Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor for Billy Bubba Slime, who now reappears as an influential adviser on the economy to Emperor Also Known As. Reich says we must rebuild our infrastructure, but that federal handouts for the purpose should be denied to “white construction workers.”

This will be difficult because most of the workers who construct our infrastructure are white. But, hey, if you are not that picky about the welds on your bridges, no problem! Hire someone else. So what if he doesn’t know how to operate a commode. Why not start him off on that bridge in the Cities. The one that collapsed? All these things are symptoms, signposts on the road we are traveling.

So why are we losing? Again, we are losing because not enough of us know what we are fighting. We are fighting a battle to the death. We don’t want to fight such a battle. We would prefer the give and take, the corruption and compromise, of normal politics. I know that. But if someone is determined to kill you, then your only choice is to lie down and die or to kill him.

One of many ways to understand this would be to compare the behavior of the two sides in Lincoln’s Communist War to Destroy the Union. The Yankees came out to First Manassas as if to a picnic. It was to be an afternoon’s diversion. The ladies came along in summer finery, bearing snacks. The Yankees would quickly whip the upstart rebels and go home.

But it was there, at Manassas, that Stonewall Jackson stood like a stone wall and became one of the Immortals. The Americans sent the Yankees fleeing in disorder back to Washington. Had this really been a “civil” war, in which both sides were contending to control the national government – had Jackson and the others understood what they were really fighting – the Americans would have pursued the fleeing Yankee rabble all the way back to Washington, overthrown the perverted government, arrested Lincoln and the other imperialists, given them fair trials before hanging and restored the Union.

There was also, courtesy of John Greenleaf Whittier, “‘Who touches a hair of yon gray head, dies like a dog! March on!’ he said.” Robert E. Lee, like Jackson a sublime Christian gentleman, invaded the North. He forbade military depredations against civilians. The policy of the Yankees, led by General William T. Sherman, was to terrorize civilians, in every way from rape to robbery to wanton destruction. The victims included many blacks. Lee forbade reprisals.

You cannot negotiate with someone like Sherman. You cannot compromise. Sherman was not a man. He was a satanic Communist monster, a beast from the pit. If you choose to live, you can do only one thing with such a monster, however much you may not like it. The problem was that Jackson and Lee, the Immortals, did not understand until it was too late what they were fighting. Had they understood, the war would no doubt have ended quite differently.

In 1870, speaking of Reconstruction, Lee told former Confederate Governor of Texas Fletcher Stockdale, “Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand.”

That is what we have here. We are at Khe Sanh. We are at the Alamo. Someone has broken into your home and is threatening to hurt your wife or your daughter. Yes, the cops will come, later, when it is over. Right now, everything depends on you, on you and your Glock, on you and your HK or your S & W.

Even if you do what you must, you could lose and be killed. But if you do nothing, if you make nice, if you simper like your pansy preacher, then you will be killed for sure. In a battle to the death, you must get downright mean. You must do nasty things you would rather not remember, if – if – if you want to survive. Would it help to remember what God did to Saul when the king disobediently neglected to kill everyone and everything? So are you ready to scramble? Do you have your own lists?

Forget the Obamatrons. Most of them will never recover; they want to be buggered. Communicate this one thing to enough befuddled Americans, just this one thing, and we could pull this thing out; revive the Constitution and restore America. This one understanding – that we are in a battle to the death – would be a universal elixir that penetrates all cells, a version of the Rosetta Stone. It could do the same thing for you as a toss into a half-frozen lake.

Stang’s Immutable Laws of Warfare

• Law One: If you don’t know you are in a war, you will lose.
• Law Two: If you don’t know you are in a battle to the death, you will die.

I can tell you from experience that the certainty of imminent death has a generally animating effect that will galvanize everything you do. On one occasion many years ago, after I lectured about the “civil rights” movement and Martin L. King at one of the nation’s prestigious institutions of lower learning, a young gentleman of color got in my face and said I would be killed.

I was alone up there and the only thing I could do was get even farther into his. Because many of my readers are exquisitely genteel Christian ladies, I won’t tell you what I said, except that it concerned his mother, and I got lucky. He left. I hope his mother never found out what I said.

Am I talking about shooting? I am quoting the President of the United States: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Obviously, the President was talking about shooting. I pray that time has not come and will not come.

Right now, I am talking about the necessary change in attitude and demeanor of still somnolent Americans. The enemy, the Shermanites, revel in getting in your face. The still somnolent slink away. On the contrary, those who have been stanged get right up in their face, forcefully rejecting inappropriate substitution of “gay,” for buggery, “choice” for baby murder and other brainwashing thefts.

Confronted by the usual race racketeers with the hoary canard of “white guilt,” the stanged will respond that they need to clean up their neighborhoods. Indeed, since one of the purposes of the Conspiracy for World Government is to deny its existence, mere, public recognition of the Conspiracy is a victory that will produce a salubrious, cascading effect.

It is hard to believe, but a majority of Americans (including Christians and conservatives) seem oblivious to the fact that there is a very real, very legitimate New World Order (NWO) unfolding. In the face of overwhelming evidence, most Americans not only seem totally unaware of this reality, they seem unwilling to even remotely entertain the notion.

On one hand, it is understandable that so many Americans would be ignorant of the emerging New World Order. After all, the mainstream media refuses to report, or even acknowledge, the NWO. Even "conservative" commentators and talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, or Joe Scarborough refuse to discuss it. And when listeners call these respective programs, these "conservative" hosts usually resort to insulting the caller as being some kind of "conspiracy kook." One host even railed that if anyone questions the government line on 9/11, we should "lock them up and throw away the key." So much for freedom of speech!

This is an area--perhaps the central area--where liberals and conservatives agree: they both show no patience or tolerance for anyone who believes that global government (in any form) is evolving. One has to wonder how otherwise intelligent and thoughtful people can be so brain dead when it comes to this issue. It makes one wonder who is really pulling their strings, doesn't it?

The list of notable personalities who have openly referenced or called for some kind of global government or New World Order is extremely lengthy. Are all these people "kooks" or "conspiracy nuts"? Why would world leaders--including presidents, secretaries of state, and high government officials; including the media, financial, and political elite--constantly refer to something that doesn't exist? Why would they write about, talk about, or openly promote a New World Order, if there is no such thing?

Many of us recall President George Herbert Walker Bush talking much about an emerging New World Order. For example, in 1989, Bush told the students of Texas A&M University, "Perhaps the world order of the future will truly be a family of nations."

Later, Bush, Sr. said, "We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order . . .. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.'s founders."

Bush, Sr. also said, "What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea--a new world order."

Bush, Sr. further said, "The world can therefore seize the opportunity to fulfill the long-held promise of a new world order . . ."

What was President G.H.W. Bush talking about, if there is no such thing as an emerging New World Order? Was he talking out of his mind? Was he hallucinating?

England's Prime Minister, Tony Blair, said, "We are all internationalists now, whether we like it or not." He continued saying, "On the eve of a new Millennium we are now in a new world. We need new rules for international co-operation and new ways of organizing our international institutions." He also said, "Today the impulse towards interdependence is immeasurably greater. We are witnessing the beginnings of a new doctrine of international community."

In 1999, Tony Blair said, "Globalization has transformed our economies and our working practices. But globalism is not just economic. It is also a political and security phenomenon."

What is Tony Blair talking about, if there is no emerging New World Order? What does he mean by "a new doctrine of international community"? What does he mean by "new world"? How can one have globalism, which includes "a political and security phenomenon," without creating a New World Order? Is Tony Blair hallucinating?

Likewise, former President George W. Bush penned his signature to the Declaration of Quebec back on April 22, 2001, in which he gave a "commitment to hemispheric integration and national and collective responsibility for improving the economic well-being and security of our people."

By "our people," Bush meant the people of the Western Hemisphere, not the people of the United States. Phyllis Schlafly rightly reminded us that G.W. Bush "pledged that the United States will 'build a hemispheric family on the basis of a more just and democratic international order.'"

Remember, too, that it was G.W. Bush who, back in 2005, committed the United States to the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), which is nothing more than a precursor to the North American Community or Union, as outlined in CFR member Robert Pastor's manual, "Toward a North American Community."

If there is no such thing as an emerging New World Order, what was G.W. Bush talking about when he referred to "a hemispheric family" and an "international order"?

The public statements of notable world leaders regarding an emerging New World Order are copious. Consider the statements of former CBS newsman, Walter Cronkite.

In his book, "A Reporter's Life," Walter Cronkite said, "A system of world order--preferably a system of world government--is mandatory. The proud nations someday will see the light and, for the common good and their own survival, yield up their precious sovereignty . . ." Cronkite told BBC newsman Tim Sebastian, "I think we are realizing that we are going to have to have an international rule of law." He added, "We need not only an executive to make international law, but we need the military forces to enforce that law." Cronkite also said, "American people are going to begin to realize that perhaps they are going to have to yield some sovereignty to an international body to enforce world law."

If there is no emerging New World Order, what is Walter Cronkite talking about? Can there be any doubt that Cronkite is talking about global government? Absolutely not!

Now, when Bush, Sr. talks about fulfilling "the promise and vision of the U.N.'s founders," he was talking about the same thing former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was talking about when he said, "The time for absolute and exclusive sovereignty . . . has passed."

The United Nations has been on the forefront of promoting the New World Order agenda since its very inception. In 1995, the UN released a manual entitled, "Our Global Neighborhood." It states, "Population, consumption, technology, development, and the environment are linked in complex relationships that bear closely on human welfare in the global neighborhood. Their effective and equitable management calls for a systematic, long-term, global approach guided by the principle of sustainable development, which has been the central lesson from the mounting ecological dangers of recent times. Its universal application is a priority among the tasks of global governance."

If there is no emerging New World Order, what is "global governance" all about?

"Who are the movers and shakers promoting global government?" you ask. Obviously, it is the international bankers who are the heavyweights behind the push for global government. Remember, one cannot create a "global economy" without a global government to manage, oversee, and control it.

In a letter written to Colonel E. Mandell House, President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson."

"Old Hickory" did his best to rid the United States from the death grip that the international bankers were beginning to exert on this country. He may have been the last President to actually oppose the bankers. In discussing the Bank Renewal bill with a delegation of bankers in 1832, Jackson said, "Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time, and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out."

Unfortunately, the international bankers proved themselves to be too formidable for President Jackson. And in 1913, with the collaboration of President Woodrow Wilson, the bankers were given charge over America's financial system by the creation of the Federal Reserve.

Ever since the CFR and Trilateral Commission were created, they have filled the key leadership positions of government, big media, and of course, the Federal Reserve.

In his book, "With No Apologies," former Republican Presidential nominee Barry Goldwater wrote, "The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power-- political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved. As managers and creators of the system, they will rule the future." Was Goldwater a prophet or what?

And again, the goals of the global elite have been publicly stated. Back in 1991, the founder of the CFR, David Rockefeller praised the major media for their complicity in helping to facilitate the globalist agenda by saying, "We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

How could Rockefeller be any plainer? He acknowledged the willful assistance of the major media in helping to keep the elitists' agenda of global government from the American people. To this day, the major media has not deviated from that collaboration. And this includes the aforementioned "conservative" talking heads. They know if they want to keep their jobs, they dare not reveal the New World Order. The NWO, more than anything else, is the "Third Rail" to the national media.

Is it any wonder that President Barack Obama has stacked his government with numerous members of the CFR? Among these are Robert Gates, Janet Napolitano, Eric Shinseki, Timothy Geithner, and Tom Daschle. Other CFR members include CFR President Richard Haass, CFR Director Richard Holbrooke, and founding member of the Trilateral Commission and CFR member Paul Volcker. Obama even asked a CFR member, Rick Warren, to deliver the inaugural prayer.

Still not convinced? Just a few days ago, when asked by a reporter what he thought the most important thing was that Barack Obama could accomplish, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said, "I think his task will be develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a New World Order can be created. It's a great opportunity; it isn't just a crisis."

This is the same Henry Kissinger, you will recall, who said back in 1991, "Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow, they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were [sic] an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government."

Even Gideon Rachman, the chief foreign affairs commentator for the Financial Times, wrote an editorial expressing his support for world government. In his column he said, "I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. . . . But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.

"A 'world government' would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be a model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service and the ability to deploy military force.

"So could the European model go global? There are three reasons for thinking that it might."

Rachman then goes on to explain the reasons why he believes world government is plausible.

Do you now see why it does not matter to a tinker's dam whether it is a Republican or Democrat who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? For the most part, both major parties in Washington, D.C., have been under the dominating influence of the international bankers who control the Federal Reserve, the CFR, and the Trilateral Commission. And this is also why it does not matter whether one calls himself conservative or liberal. For the most part, both conservatives and liberals in Washington, D.C., are facilitating the emerging New World Order. It is time we wake up to this reality.

Presidents Bush, Sr., Bill Clinton, and Bush, Jr. have thoroughly set the table for the implementation of the NWO, as surely as the sun rises in the east. All Obama has to do is put the food on the table--and you can count on this: Barack Obama will serve up a New World Order feast like you cannot believe!

That a New World Order is emerging is not in question. The only question is, What will freedom-loving Americans do about it? Of course, the first thing they have to do is admit that an emerging New World Order exists! Until conservatives, Christians, pastors, constitutionalists, and others who care about a sovereign, independent United States acknowledge the reality of an emerging New World Order, they will be incapable of opposing it. And right now, that is exactly what they are not doing.

Economic stimulus? Feds want your medical records
Electronic database to include lawsuit, mental health, abortion, sexual details

Posted: January 27, 2009
9:00 pm Eastern

By Bob Unruh

A little-discussed provision in President Obama's economic stimulus plan would demand that every American submit to a government program for electronic medical records without a choice to opt out, and it has privacy advocates more than a little alarmed.

Patients might be alarmed, too, privacy advocates said, if they realized information such as documentation on abortions, mental health problems, impotence, being labeled as a non-compliant patient, lawsuits against doctors and sexual problems could be shared electronically with, perhaps, millions of people.

Sue A. Blevins, president of the Institute for Health Freedom, said unless people have the right to decide "if and when" their health information is shared, there is no real privacy.

"President Obama has pledged to advance freedom," she said. "Therefore the freedom to choose not to participate in a national electronic health-records system must be upheld."

Blevins' organization, one of the few raising the alarm at this point, said the stimulus plan would impose an electronic health records system on every person in the U.S. without any provision for seeking patient consent or allowing them not to participate.

"Without those protections, Americans' electronic health records could be shared – without their consent – with over 600,000 covered entities through the forthcoming nationally linked electronic health-records network," Blevins said.

The organization said Americans who care about health privacy should contact members of Congress and the president to let them know about the need for opt-out and consent provisions.

According to the institute, the measure currently includes plans for:

An electronic health record "for each person in the United States by 2014."

A national coordinator to develop a "nationwide health information technology infrastructure that allows for the electronic use and exchange of information."
The institute said the medical privacy rule established under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 already allows personal health information to be passed along without patient consent for treatment, payment and "oversight." The recipients of such information could be any of the people in the 600,000 organizations in the industry.

"Nobody wants to stop the proper use of good technology," Blevins said, "and for some people privacy is not an issue."

But she said the bottom line is that patients "would end up losing control of his or her personal health information."

"There's a lot at stake with electronically transferring health data and paying claims within the $2.2 trillion healthcare industry," warned the organization, which works on issues of health freedom in the U.S.

Another group, Consumer Watchdog, even suggested today Google is trying to lobby for the "sale of electronic medical records."

The group said, "Reportedly Google is pushing for the provisions so it may sell patient medical information to its advertising clients on the new 'Google Health' database."

Consumer Watchdog said, "Americans will benefit from an integrated system capable of making our medical records available wherever we may need them, but only if the system is properly used.

"The medical technology portion of the economic stimulus bill does not sufficiently protect patient privacy, and recent amendments have made this situation worse. Medical privacy must be strengthened before the measure's final passage," the group said.

WND previously has reported on attempts in Minnesota by state lawmakers to authorize the collection and warehousing of newborns' DNA without parental consent.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty has been successful in stopping the action there so far.

The Citizens' Council on Health Care has worked to publicize the issue in Minnesota. The group raised opposition when the state Department of Health continued to warehouse DNA without parental consent in violation of the genetic privacy and DNA property rights of parents and children.

Twila Brase, president of CCHC, said at the time the problem is that "researchers already are looking for genes related to violence, crime and different behaviors."

In an extensive interview with WND at the time, she said, "In England they decided they should have doctors looking for problem children, and have those children reported, and their DNA taken in case they would become criminals."

In fact, published reports in Britain note that senior police forensics experts believe genetic samples should be studied, because it may be possible to identify potential criminals as young as age 5.

Brase said efforts to study traits and gene factors and classify people would be just the beginning. What could happen through subsequent programs to address such conditions, she wondered.

"Not all research is great," she said.

Classifying of people could lead to "discrimination and prejudice. … People can look at data about you and make assessments ultimately of who you are."

The Heartland Regional Genetics and Newborn Screening is one of the organizations that advocates more screening and research.

The group proclaims in its vision statement a desire to see newborns screened for 200 conditions. It also forecasts "every student … with an individual program for education based on confidential interpretation of their family medical history, their brain imaging, their genetic predictors of best learning methods. …"

Further, every individual should share information about "personal and family health histories" as well as "gene tests for recessive conditions and drug metabolism" with the "other parent of their future children."

Still further, it seeks "ecogenetic research that could improve health, lessen disability, and lower costs for sickness."

"They want to test every child for 200 conditions, take the child's history and a brain image, and genetics, and come up with a plan for that child," Brase said at the time. "They want to learn their weaknesses and defects.

"Nobody including and especially the government should be allowed to create such extensive profiles," she said.

The next step, said Brase, is obvious: The government, with information about potential health weaknesses, could say to couples, "We don't want your expensive children."

"I think people have forgotten about eugenics. The fact of the matter is that the eugenicists have not gone away. Newborn genetic testing is the entry into the 21st Century version of eugenics," she said.

Six years slipped into memory since I reported on Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm’s famous Washington, DC speech, “How to Destroy America.” He presented it to a stunned audience at a Federation for American Immigration Reform in October 2003. ( Since that time, someone translated the speech into German, French and possibly Dutch. It rolls around the Internet with regularity as I see it arrive at my computer in various forms. Often, my byline somehow vanished from the credits. Nonetheless, the speech remains one of the most prophetic presentations for America in the 21st century.

Additionally, it applies to Great Britain, France, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Sweden, Canada and Demark. It addresses the consequences of multiculturalism and cultural impregnation into otherwise stable societies.

For those of you who might like to see it in video form, you may download it and experience the chilling realities that Lamm spoke about six years ago. Take five minutes of your time and send it to all your mailing lists. "How to Destroy America."

Since that fateful speech six years ago, Americans of every race, creed and color find themselves victims of an additional 12 million legal and illegal migrants who have arrived at our shores from failed cultures and hyper-populated countries. They represent economic, war and environmental refugees. Since that speech, the U.S. reached 300 million people with projections for adding 100 million MORE people by 2035.

In the past six years the world added 462 million people. In that same six years, 18 million people died annually from starvation and starvation related diseases, which equals 108 million human beings. Of that number, children under 10 represented 60 million deaths. (Source: World Health Organization)

Now, let’s get down to brass tacks! Out of the next 100 million people added to the USA through relentless immigration, a full 70 million of them will be immigrants from countries, religions and cultures that failed to provide for their citizens. Why? Those countries’ populations grow so fast, they cannot feed, water or educate them. Yet, the hyper-population growth in places like Africa will not stabilize. Africa, currently at 967 million expects to reach 1.4 billion in 40 years. South America expects to double its population! Mexico will jump from 108 million to 153 million. China will hit 1.55 billion while Indian exceeds them at 1.6 billion.

How does Lamm’s speech affect you or your children—and most importantly, to our civilization?

It means that California will jump from its already unsustainable 38 million to 58 million people. They add 1,700 people a day and 400 cars! They grow by 602,000 annually. It means their water shortages today will be outright water wars in a few decades.

The West is hurtling toward a water crisis.

“Overpopulation will be the major factor in the destruction of Utah, the second driest state with the fastest growth rate with the highest birthrate.”

The Salt Lake Tribune; Updated: 01/09/2009 03:21:23 PM MST

In the words of Bernard DeVoto, "The future of the West hinges on whether it can defend itself against itself."

Beyond the environmental impacts, it means you can expect America to tangle with a hundred different languages, strange customs and ancient cultures. It means America will add 10 million to 15 million Muslims that have proven horrific consequences in countries like France, England, Holland, Norway, Sweden and Belgium. At first, they seem benign, but once their numbers grow into majorities, they do not absorb and demand separate schools, communities and their language. They already call for separate cities within Great Britain and Holland. Expect female genital mutilation, honor killings, forced marriages, separate swimming times for men and women and Sharia Law with barbaric concepts.

From the left, a call to end the current Dutch notion of tolerance
By John Vinocur; Published: December 29, 2008

It means Texas adds 12 million people by 2025 and Florida will double from 18 million to 36 million people.

We face mind-numbing consequences, but our president and Congress STILL do not understand our dilemma. U.S. Senator Harry Reid wants to give an amnesty to all 20 million illegal aliens, more chain migration and he expects to DOUBLE legal immigration from the current 1.2 million annually to 2.4 million.

Governor Lamm sees it and I see it. I’ve seen it and I know what’s coming. Every major city struggles with gridlock, air pollution, acid rain and a hundred other consequences today! Are we the only ones to see this gargantuan human calamity?

At this point, everyone in Congress for the most part cannot see it or refuses to see what we face. Therefore, it’s up to you and your friends, and every red blooded, flag waving American citizen. Get ready for the fight of your lives as Senator Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a democratically dominated Congress rain insanity down on our civilization by adding 100 million people to our country.

At today: at 1 million members, Roy Beck’s armada of stalwart Americans stand ready to fight this amnesty, but we need 2 million members, so please join and get ready to battle for your family and our civilization.

White House plan putsbull's-eye on talk shows
Posted agenda issues warning about new 'obligation' review

Posted: January 26, 2009
8:29 pm Eastern

By Bob Unruh


Barack Obama

The White House is promising new reviews of the "obligations" to the government by broadcasters who "occupy the nation's spectrum" just as the president has targeted conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh for a public attack, raising concerns over the possible restoration of the "Fairness Doctrine," a policy that failed as unneeded and unconstitutional two decades ago.

Paul Ibrahim of cited Obama's warning to congressional Republicans that "you can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done" in suggesting the president has become the "driving force" because a new "systematic" plan to "intimidate and demonize Obama's opponents."

That such a campaign was launched only days after Obama's inauguration is "tremendously perturbing," he wrote.

"Welcome to the politics of hope 'n' change. Obama's startling attempt to hang Limbaugh's scalp on the wall is a warning that the new ruler does not want unity – he demands it," Ibrahim wrote.

On Obama's agenda, according to his White House website, is the goal to "encourage diversity in media ownership."

Obama elaborates on the site that his aim is to "encourage diversity in the ownership of broadcast media, promote the development of new media outlets for expression of diverse viewpoints, and clarify the public interest obligations of broadcasters who occupy the nation's spectrum."

The plan apparently aligns with longstanding Democratic suggestions to resurrect the "Fairness Doctrine."

The policy was abandoned in 1987 under President Reagan when there were 75 radio talk shows in the U.S. Reagan opposed the policy because it required broadcast TV and radio programs to air "opposing views" on political issues, which had the practical effect of virtually eliminating opinion programs.

Since abandonment of the Fairness Doctrine, the number of radio talk shows has risen to more than 3,000.

WND founder and editor Joseph Farah long has warned about Democrats' plans to revive restrictions on the airwaves.

"If the Democrats and their me-too Republican allies are successful at sacking talk radio, there will be no stopping them," Farah warned. "Broadcast will be first. Then they will go after the Internet with taxes and new regulations and hate-crimes laws. And when they succeed at muzzling dissenting voices there, they will even turn to print. Remember, we are dealing with a neo-fascist mentality here."

Many fear the Fairness Doctrine would drive talk radio hosts – like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage – out of business.

During the presidential campaign, spokesman Michael Ortiz indicated Obama thought the debate was "a distraction."

But author Brad O'Leary examined Obama's legal and organizational attempts to silence media detractors during the presidential race and came to a different conclusion.

"Barack Obama has shown a stunning lack of tolerance for free speech throughout the course of [his] campaign," said O'Leary. "His presidency, combined with supermajorities for Democrats in Congress, would almost certainly bring back the so-called 'Fairness Doctrine' and allow the Democrats to snuff out any broadcasters with whom they disagree."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., affirmed her support to Human Events reporter John Gizzi for a "Fairness" policy, and Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., told radio host Jim Villanucci, "I would want this station and all stations to have to present a balanced perspective and different points of view, instead of always hammering away at one side of the political [spectrum]."

Ibrahim noted the president's public verbal condemnation of Limbaugh makes clear his "rejection" of the old "Bush" politics.

"You see, President Bush did not launch assaults on private citizens, nor did he ever label anyone as 'unpatriotic' for disagreeing with him. Thus, Obama and his friends are now effecting the change they promised. Welcome to their 'new' politics," he wrote.

The National Review's Byron York said Obama's criticism of Limbaugh makes it appear he considers the talk host "the true leader of the Republican opposition."

York said Limbaugh responded that Obama was trying to make the arguments about the radio show instead of Obama's actual plans.

"To make the argument about me instead of his plan makes sense from his perspective," Limbaugh told York. "Obama's plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR's New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts.

"I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing 'eternal' power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy," Limbaugh continued. "If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle."

Limbaugh added: "One more thing, Byron. Your publication and website have documented Obama's ties to the teachings of Saul Alinksy while he was community organizing in Chicago. Here is Rule 13 of Alinksy's Rules for Radicals: 'Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.'"

Michael G. Franc, writing on the National Review's "The Corner" blog, noted that attorney general nominee Eric Holder also has refused to commit to opposing to Fairness Doctrine.

Obama's choice to head his FCC transition team, Democrat Henry Rivera, added to fear in media circles that the Fairness Doctrine might return to silence conservative talk radio.

Brian Maloney of the blog The Radio Equalizer said in his post "Meet Talk's Executioner" he believes Rivera will use his position to bring back the law for that very purpose.

Rivera, according to Maloney, "is expected to lead the push to dismantle commercial talk radio that is favored by a number of Democratic Party senators. Rivera will play a pivotal role in preventing critics from having a public voice during Obama's tenure in office."

Perplexity in the Empire of the Beast!

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

Luke 21:25-28
“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

I Thessalonians 5:1-3
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

Luke 17:28-30
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look at the confusion and instability of the events of our day in the light of Bible prophecy. As we do this, we will clearly see how accurate and precise the Bible is as every detail of prophecy is being fulfilled now in our time right before our very eyes! We are now seeing the empire of the Antichrist rising rapidly. As this happens according to prophecy, nations everywhere would not just be troubled or agitated but in a state of distress. The primary reason for that distress is the accompanying perplexity. At this point we must understand that the word perplexity comes from the Greek word aporia, which means: “unable to find a way out!”

The Scriptures above also tells us that when the people of earth declare peace and safety sudden destruction will come upon them. The prophecy also uses the analogy of a woman with child who is about to deliver. The birth pangs get closer and closer together and ever more intense, and there is no way to back out of what is happening. Thus, the perplexed people of the earth, so familiar with religion and yet so far from the truth, will find no escape!

We also know that when the end comes, it will come very fast! The third portion of Scripture above tells us that life will be status quo and go on normally in all of our human endeavors until suddenly the last day comes. Our Saviour called attention to Sodom and compared the last generation to it. Indeed, the world is now full of crazed sodomites. We also know from the story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah that the lust-filled homosexuals were blinded by the angels, and the blinded only intensified their lust as they stood near Lot’s house. The homosexuals never stopped trying as the demons in them drove them to extreme intensity as they wearied themselves to find the door! Thus, after Lot and his family left the city, fire and brimstone fell on the blinded population of that city. Even so now in this last generation, a spiritual blindness has engulfed the people of the United States and the world. They are blind to the impending judgment of Almighty God. This is especially true of church leaders. Our Lord said that if the blind lead the blind, they all fall into the ditch!

In I John 5:19, we read a very profound verse as follows: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” Here let it be noted that the word lieth in this verse comes from a Greek word that means to “lay complete sprawled out, as if in a state of sleep.” Thus, the verse is saying that the people of the last days are completely sprawled out and laying in wickedness. They are fully acclimated to evil with no sense of what is truly right and what is truly wrong. This is the very condition of our day! If you are reading this and you feel a stirring in your soul, yield your heart and mind to the Lord Jesus now! There is so little time left, and soon it will be too late. The Saviour will hear you and save you. You will be safe and secure from the wrath to come!

The Rising of a New Beast!

By the time you receive this newsletter, unless Almighty God intervenes, we will have a new President of the United States. I am writing this newsletter on January 16th, 2009, and in just a few days Barack Hussein Obama will become the 44th President of the United States. One of the last official acts of the outgoing President George W. Bush was to declare a state of emergency in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration. (1) The swearing in ceremony is expected to cost $165 million, (2) and Obama will be riding in a limousine that is designed to withstand rocket and chemical attacks. (3) This black Cadillac vehicle has been named “the beast” by the Secret Service. (4) A security force that is 42,500 strong will be deployed for the event, including the U.S. Secret Service, FBI, and a total of ninety-nine other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. Command centers set up by FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies will honeycomb the entire area. (5) It will look like a war zone and is more of a military event than anything else. Except for the presence of the swastika or hackenkreutz, it will look very much like the January morning when Adolph Hitler walked up the steps in his country to take the reins of power. Hitler promised change and economic recovery. He also promised jobs for everyone.

On hand for the event will be the religious leader Rick Warren. Warren is the multimillionaire minister and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, who will give the invocation. What spirit will he invoke? Obama also invited Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson to give a special prayer. (6) Robinson is the flaming red hot homosexual activist from New Hampshire, who has been in the news for his extreme actions to promote homosexuality. I see and feel God’s judgment coming quickly after this event!

A number of amazing signs have happened in the month before the scheduled inauguration of Obama. The President-elect and his family went on a vacation to the island of Oahu in Hawaii in December. They were staying in a “humble” 9 million dollar, five-bedroom oceanfront house near downtown Honolulu. According to the Associated Press, “their Hawaiian vacation was darkened for eleven hours.” (7) It was a power outage that brought darkness to their mansion on the ocean. It happened on a Friday night, which was the first esbat (witches’ weekly meeting) after the sabat of Yule, and it was also the last esbat of the year. The number eleven is significant because it is the Aquarian number as Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac in astrology. The sun enters that sign on January 20th, the very day of the inauguration. Washington and the entire government operates on the power of witchcraft and have for generations. Thus, a dark and occult shadow is cast on the event of the inauguration, and dark ominous days are ahead for America!

Another event that took place on January 7th, 2009, was the mysterious dinner meeting with Obama and four Presidents. There were five men in all: Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter. The Associated Press made a point of mentioning that this meeting took place exactly thirteen days before the scheduled inauguration. (8) What did these five men talk about? It was all very private and secretive. I was reminded of a similar occasion when five men went into a cave near Ingolstadt, Bavaria, on May 1st, 1776. It was Dr. Adam Weishaupt, who with four other men, met in the cave at the behest of the Rothschild banking cartel to bring forth a conspiratorial plan to take over the world and present it one day to their god Lucifer. In that cave, these five men consulted with an invisible force that they called the controlling unknown. This “force” gave them the plan to recruit members of their new organization, which would become known as the Illuminati. They would conceal themselves by hiding in the high levels of the Masonic Lodge until they could foment revolutions and three world wars until their objective was achieved. There is much more to this story. When five men gather secretly in the realm of occultism, they represent the five points of the pentacle, a five-pointed star. Those five points are earth, wind, fire, water, and spirit. It was no coincidence that this meeting was thirteen days before the inauguration when Obama is to become president and the sun enters Aquarius. The number thirteen is the most sacred number in the occult.

On the 13th day of January 2009, the Department of Homeland Security conducted a test at the White House in anticipation of a possible major incident with emphasis on the continuity of government procedures if an attack occurred. (9) When the Lord Jesus returns, there will be no continuity of their government; that is for sure!

What will happen after this expensive event and the change of power? Incidentally, large portions of all the money that will pay for the inauguration is coming from the very Wall Street executives that received the bail-out money! This was recently reported in the Wall Street Journal. (10) The new President will be unique in one major way. He will be the first U.S. President to enter into the management of an American empire in decline! (11) Obama apparently thinks of himself as a creator. He intends to “create” 600,000 new government jobs. (12) The new President also intends to “create” two trillion new dollars to spend on his programs. This will have a watering-down effect on the value of the American dollar, which is already in trouble. Obama himself stated, “There is red ink as far as the eye can see,” and he is planning to cut social security and medicare spending. (13)

On January 5th, 2009, the Business and Media Institute reported that Obama may be inclined to put a tax on dairy cows to help raise money to curb greenhouse gases. (14) The tax is expected to be $175.00 per cow. The environmentalist extremists believe that the cows give off enough gas from flatulence to damage the environment and ozone layer.

On January 14th, incoming White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced that Barack Obama is definitely going to end the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” program regarding homosexuals and lesbians in the military. (15) The new President believes that the homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals and others of that ilk should be welcomed with opened arms in the military. Do we need militant sodomites in the armed forces?

Is Barack Hussein Obama an antichrist? We know that the Antichrist as a governing beast is spoken of in Revelation, chapter 13. As we study that chapter, we find that even though the Antichrist is a beast, he has the number of a man, and his number is 666. Thus, numbers are important indicators of the Antichrist and of antichrist activity. Here let it be noted that Obama claims Hawaii as his birthplace, although he has never proved that. Using his claim, however, we find some very interesting numbers. We know that Satan told Almighty God in Job 1:7 that he had come from walking to and fro in the earth, and walking up and down in it. To and fro would indicate latitude, and up and down would indicate longitude. The latitude of the claimed birthplace of Obama in Hawaii is 21.6. Those three digits that make up 21.6 are significant because the number 216 is the number 6 cubed, or 6x6x6=216. Obama was born on August 4th, 1961, which is the 216th day of the year, another 666. We also know that Obama’s office in Chicago, Illinois, had an interesting zip code: 60606. In the ancient Babylonian numbering system of letters having numerical equivalents increasing by six for each letter, we find that the words “A messiah Barack” equal 666. We also know from Revelation, chapters 7 and 14, that the number 144,000 represents the people of Almighty God. It is the Antichrist that tries to divide them. If we divide the number 144,000 by 666, we find an amazing quotient of 216.216216. If we divide 144,000 by 216 we get the number 666.666666.

We must also remember that Obama’s claim of birth in Hawaii is further revealing, because Hawaii is in the Pacific Ocean. The word Pacific means “peace”, and the Scripture says that the antichrist will come as a man of peace. We also know that the metaphoric meaning of the word Hawaii comes from “Ha” (breath of life), and “Wai” (fresh water). Thus, in metaphor it means “the water of life.” The extra letter “I” would then indicate, “I am the water of life.” This is a title that belongs only to the Lord Jesus and not to Barack Obama.

Obama is also connected with Kenya, which is no doubt his real place of birth. The word Kenya is actually a feminine word pronounced “Keen-ya,” and it refers in feminine usage to the “cradle of mankind” in the native Kikuyu language. The literal meaning of the word Kenya is “the abode of the gods.” Even Obama’s political roots in Illinois are significant because the word Illinois is an Algonquin word which means, “Tribe of superior men,” or In other words, the master race. There is much more that could be said!

The Fall of an Economic Empire!

Strange forces are now hard at work in the world, and their objective is a singular and unified monetary system. This is essential in order to control the population of the world and bring them into subservience to a one world dictator. On January 8th, 2009, Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, and Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of England, called upon the United States to join them in bringing forth a new world capitalism. (16) This strange triumvirate of Europe has the objective of a one-world money system. They have already unified most of Europe into the usage of a common currency called the Euro. But united Europe is not enough. Sarkozy clearly stated, “We cannot accept the status quo!” (17) These three leaders are both mysterious and unusual. Nicolas Sarkozy, the head of France, is actually of Greek origin and comes from the same area of Macedonia from which Alexander the Great came. He is a powerful and demanding authoritarian. Tony Blair is an active occultist and leader in the European Union. Merkel is reportedly the biological daughter of Adolph Hitler by means of artificial insemination, according to the Russian doctor who both developed the procedure and recorded it in his notes and transcripts. Take a good look at Angela Merkel, and you can see the face of Hitler except for the schnurrbart, (mustache). What a strange power of three they make as they proceed with their mission to unify the world under one currency. It reminds me of Revelation 16:13-14 which reads as follows: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For these are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”

Will the United States of America ever join such a system and become an interdependent unit of a worldwide universal economic system? At this very time, we are seeing the crashing fall of our current system, and with the massive bailouts going on, capitalism is giving way to socialism and government ownership. On December 31st, 2008, the Financial Times featured the headline “U.S. Stocks Suffer Worst Year Since the Great Depression.” (18) On January 7th, 2009, the Wall Street Journal headline read as follows: “Fed Outlook Darkens on Economy.” (19) The story went on to make dire predictions for the year 2009, including climbing unemployment well into the year 2010! (20) It is one economic disaster after another in America, and it has been so since September 2008 when the crash began as predicted in the May 2008 issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter. Now we have learned that the giant Bank of America is to receive an additional $20 billion. This was announced on January 16th, 2009. This will make the Federal Government the primary stockholder in this giant bank and ostensibly the owner of it! (21) This is Marxist socialism in action! They said it could never happen here.

Meanwhile sales continue to plummet because people just don’t have the money to buy things, even at lower prices. By definition, this is a depression. Ford Motor sales dropped by 32 percent in December, and Chrysler dropped by 53 percent! (22) In the month of November 2008, employers eliminated 533,000 jobs! (23) The once highly sought after United States Treasury bills are now bearing no interest at all with a rate of 0.005%. Red China is now the largest holder of U.S. Treasury bills and is stuck with them. (24)

How hard was the fall and crash of the economy in recent months? The pension funds of U.S. companies held a 60 billion dollar surplus just one year ago. Now the funds that so many people depend upon for retirement are in the hole with a deficit of 409 billion dollars! (25) Many people will be unable to retire! In addition to that, Social Security is in trouble as admitted by Obama, and the baby boom generation is bringing 10,000 new applicants for Social Security every day! (26) With all of this going on, it is interesting to note that the United Autoworkers’ Union keeps and enjoys a $6 million golf course for members at a $33 million lakeside retreat! (27) It is one scam after another and honesty is now almost nonexistent.

The request for government bailouts continue constantly. The steel industry in America, which was once the backbone of our national growth, is now in a condition of collapse. They are hoping for a bailout. (28) The states of America are also bankrupt. Forty-seven of our fifty states are now completely bankrupt and are asking for Federal bailouts in the collective amount of $1 trillion, according to a report on CNN. (29) Also among the long list of enterprises that are requesting bailouts, there is one that is outrageous and reproachful. On January 8th, 2009, the pornography industry in the United States requested a government bailout of $5 billion of taxpayer money. (30) The smut industry claims that so many millions of people are watching and reading pornography on their computers that they are no longer buying magazines and DVD’s. They also said that America needs more pornography to keep the people entertained and happy. Without a doubt, the United States is a morally depraved nation with an appetite that demands hell’s menu. Soon it will all be over!

In spite of the economic catastrophe that is now engulfing our nation, an amazing plan is now being put into effect at the behest of the United Nations, which will involve vast amounts of U.S. dollars. I was shocked to read the article in the Houston Chronicle, which featured the headline dated November 13th, 2008, as follows: “Can Ancient Babylon Be Restored?” (31) The story goes on to tell of plans to completely restore the ancient city of Babylon, Iraq. This ancient city was greatly beloved of Satan. It is the place where the first astrologers drew the first star maps. It is where the first laws were codified and where the Hanging Gardens became one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It was also the cradle of idolatry, the basis for Freemasonry and all false religions. Truly, this is one of the last signs of the end of this present world!

The United States has poured vast amounts of money into Iraq and continues to do so. The United States has now inaugurated its largest embassy ever. On January 6th, 2009, the $700 million embassy took the omens of inauguration, for that is the meaning of that word inaugurate. The fortress-like structure is on 104 acres of land and has space for 1,000 employees. It is more than ten times the size of any U.S. Embassy in the world. This embassy is also six times larger than the entire United Nations’ complex in New York City. (32) Is this more than an embassy? Is this complex some kind of headquarters situated in the area of the Euphrates River, which is the traditional boundary that separates the Kings of the East from the Kings of the West? Soon we will know.

Distress of Nations!

The world we live in not only has economic troubles, but it also is a world of total unrest, and a Third World War looms largely on the horizon. Our Saviour himself prophesied of this in Matthew 24:6-8 as follows: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” From these words we understand that the end does not come by small wars, but rather by a world war where nations rise against nations and kingdom against kingdom. It will be a whole world at war!

Currently, the giant Russian bear is rising up once again. The Kremlin has become fearful of massive civil unrest as their economy is taking a severe hit because of the global economic catastrophe. (33) It is the battle of the euro against the rouble, and Russia had to devalue the rouble again. (34) The problem is that one of the chief sources of income for Russia is the exportation of natural gas to European nations. Russia also has one of the largest oil reserves in the world in the Crimean oil fields. When oil prices were manipulated downward on the world market, Russia received a heavy economic blow. The dispute is so great that at the beginning of January, Russia turned off the gas supplies to Eastern Europe. In those countries, thousands of businesses had to be shut down, and homes were without heat. It is being called the “new cold war in Europe.” (35) We know that the oil prices are manipulated upward and downward at will by the Illuminati conspirators, and we have all seen that recently. Russia is being forced to react, and that is why that nation is now rising up and flexing its military muscles. Russia is now stationing its warships around the world and is obviously getting ready for something of major proportions. (36) Russia has also become a strong ally of both Iran and Venezuela and is now building nuclear technology in that South American nation. (37) The balance of power is also shifting in the Middle East as Russia supplies Iran with missiles and other high-powered weapons. (38)

As reported by ABC News, the recent war in Gaza has resulted in the deaths and injuries of thousands of people, the vast majority of them being innocent civilians, women, and children. This relentless attack has incited violent hatred for Israel in the entire Moslem world with promises of painful revenge. The dead bodies of the victims were held up at rallies, and the Moslem world is being whipped up into a fever pitch against Israel. Massive global protests are now adding to the hatred. (39) All of this is leading to a horrifying war that will end with the Battle of Armageddon. In Revelation 16:14-16 we read as follows: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”

We know that Armageddon is in Israel and that the last war will end there, as well as this present world. God even used Zechariah, the prophet, to describe the effects of the nuclear weapons that will be used there. In Zechariah 14:12, we read as follows: “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” This is a clear description of thermonuclear weapons melting flesh, and this prophecy was given nearly 2,500 years ago! God help us all!

Great Signs in the Heavens and on Earth!

We know from Scripture that in the last days there are to be great signs in both the heavens and earth. Our Lord Jesus prophesied that there would be earthquakes in divers (various) places. The news media usually doesn’t say much about earthquakes, but the U.S. Geological Survey reported 326 significant earthquakes with a magnitude of four and above within a thirty-day period from December 6th, 2008, to January 5th, 2009. (40) In addition to that, and not included in that figure, are the swarms of over 900 earthquakes in the Yellowstone caldera in Wyoming. (41) Underneath this region is one of the largest volcanoes in the world, and it is overdue for eruption. (42) Only God knows when this massive eruption will occur. The many earthquakes that are happening around the world almost constantly are far too numerous to list in this newsletter, but here are a few of them: San Francisco, California– swarms of quakes on January 5th, 2009; Pakistan– a magnitude 6 quake on January 4th, 2009; Indonesia– a magnitude 6 quake on January 4th, 2009. (43) A 4.5 magnitude quake hit the Los Angeles area on January 8th, 2009, and was it felt as far away as San Diego. Costa Rica was hit with a 6.1 earthquake on January 8th, 2009, which sent people running into the streets of the capital as they watched windows shatter and walls crumble. (44) The list of quakes goes on and on!

Freak winter weather has also been sweeping our nation with deadly blizzards, ice storms, and record-breaking cold. Here in Wisconsin we have had nearly fifty inches of snow thus far and wind chill temperatures of 43 degrees below zero Fahrenheit! In Alaska, temperatures went as low as minus 78 degrees Fahrenheit! (45)

Strange and mysterious things are also going on in the heavens, which are no doubt signs to those who are watching and who believe what the Bible says. The little nation of Latvia was recently startled by columns of light that came down from space during the night at the end of December 2008. Many photographs were taken of the colored beams of light that have baffled scientists. Scientists at the website said, “Truhin’s pillars are not the ordinary kind. Even leading experts cannot figure them out. These pillars are mysterious; they have unexplained curved tops and even curved arcs coming from their base.” (46) These are signs in the heavens!

There is another strange mystery in space that was a great topic of discussion recently at the American Astronomical Society. The sophisticated equipment of the scientists picked up a sound from space that they described as a very loud roar that is six times louder than anything they have ever heard coming from space. Dr. Alan Kogut of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, had this to say, “There is something new and interesting going on in the universe. The universe really threw us a curve….detailed analysis of the signal ruled out primordial stars or any known radio sources, including gas in the outermost halo of our own galaxy.” (47) What is this strange roar from space? I am reminded of Joel 3:16 which reads as follows: “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.”

In closing, I pray that we will all be ready for that great day of the Lord’s coming. Thanks to all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. God bless you for your faithfulness! Everyone’s prayer requests are always welcome, and we give each one individual attention. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
