GORDON DUFF: DICTATORSHIP COMING SOON TO YOUR STATE


ECONOMIC SABOTAGE, FALSE FLAG TERROR AND RULE BY DECREE

CONSTITUTION SUSPENDED, PRESIDENT AND SUPREME COURT FAIL TO ACT


By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor


A plot is currently in motion to overthrow the government of the United States. It has already begun and has moved forward in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin but more states are waiting to act. Shooting incidents and bombings are planned and some may already have been carried out. A major false flag terror attack on the United States is expected, followed by states openly defying the federal government, suspending the constitution and declaring a joint “state of emergency.”

Those involved are told 5 Supreme Court justices will back them up, paralyzing the United States.

Michigan has already suspended most constitutional guarantees already and plans are in motion to enact martial law. Police departments will be “defunded,” union contracts illegally dissolved and police powers will pass to mercenary groups derived from Blackwater International.

Schools are being closed in some cities, classrooms being overloaded with students stacked like “cordwood” in others. Universities are facing cutbacks while curriculums face politically inspired gutting.

Those who used to fear increasing taxes, always death to a reelection campaign are now taxing the middle class to death. There will be no more elections, not real ones anyway. In Michigan, in fact, plans are moving forward to dissolve dozens of local governments. They are being replaced by “political consultants” who will be above any court or recall authority. This law has already been written and it says exactly this.

On a federal level, a terror attack of such magnitude is in the works as to force a full scale invasion of Iran, something currently beyond the military capabilities of the United States. America will be left in such a weakened state that a “dark horse” candidate, certainly not one of the gang of political failures waiting in the wings for 2012, will be “placed” into the presidency as in 2000, approved by the Supreme Court.

The name “Petraeus” is being bandied about but there are others.

Emergency decrees are currently being enacted or planned in a dozen states which will suspend elections.The perpetrators? A cabal of international corporations and financial institutions have formed a ruling council that will replace the current government.

■First the trade unions will be disbanded, later their leaders will be “shunned”

■City and country governments, all municipal boards and authorities, schools and utilities, will be placed under private control

■Police, fire, emergency services will be privatized as have prisons in many areas already

■Courts will be “suspended,” replaced by appointed boards that will “adjudicate” both civil and criminal issues

■A VAT (value added tax) of 15% will be placed on all retail purchases. All Corporate taxes will be ended

George W Bush left the United States economically destroyed, its infrastructure crumbling and its reputation a shambles. Rule of law had failed at home, draconian laws subverted the rights of every American. Our standard of living plunged, home values are still in free fall and most American families have no net worth whatsoever with the majority of middle class families who once had equity in homes are now in debt.

Most American pension plans are insolvent and almost all state and municipal governments are facing having their credit rating lowered enough for their bonds to be rated as “junk.”

Moves have already been made to push many state and city governments into insolvency. The books are being “cooked” and revenues are being slashed while funds for vital services are being rerouted and held up. If an insurrection doesn’t begin with the failure of basic services, plans are there to create one. Martial law will follow. Groups are moving, “policy formulation advisors,” from state to state, pre-staging “emergencies” through sabotage of government functions.

This wasn’t an accident, it took years of careful planning.

Two moves in particular made what is coming up possible.

1. 9/11, the “false flag” and “inside job” of all time and

2. The Supreme Court’s bizarre decision granting political rights and citizenship to foreign owned corporations that register in the US

The intended result of these acts is the destruction of the United States and its people.

We might ask why but there is no way to find anyone who is accountable other than those who serve the foreign masters.

We are not going to be able to vote our way out of this. That right disappeared a long time ago.

Tens of thousands of Americans are protesting now. It won’t be enough, not until all of us take the first step of calling for a national strike.

Rule of law and the constitution need to be restored, but not by the pack of criminals who wormed their way into office with drug money and promises of constitutional reform.

There is a legal basis to impeach Justice Clarence Thomas immediately. That will afford the American people some immediate basic protections of their freedoms. Other justices are, we believe, equally corrupt.

The moves against the people of Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Florida and other states has to end. There is no question of the severity of this or how illegal and unconstitutional.

It is time to abandon “left” and “right” and go American only, people, not corporations.

The mass of security bureaucracies created over the past decade have to be dismembered and the network of data collection through our cell phones, computers, cars, credit card tracking, healthcare information and more has to end.

False Symmetry: Teaching Holocaust in Gaza Schools

By Seraj Assi

Palestine Chronicle
March 27, 2011

A set of historical ironies arises from this absurd report. (UNRWA)
Spring has turned red in Gaza with a new Israeli massacre. Late Monday night Israeli combat planes pounded Northern Gaza and murdered two children and three adults whose only crime was playing football in front of their house. At the same day Haaretz published a report complaining that Hamas protests UN plans to teach Gazans about the Holocaust. It was also the very day that the Knesset in Israel approved the Nakaba Law, an absurd legislation that bans Palestinian citizens from commemorating the Nakba.


This is no mere coincidence. Nor is it the first time that Israel’s massacring of Palestinian children is followed by absurd demands to teach Jewish victimhood in Palestinian schools, while working to prevent its Palestinian citizens from commemorating their tragedy at the same time.

The uproar against UN plan to teach the Holocaust in Gaza schools spurred in February this year after a UN official told a Jordanian daily that UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, would introduce the Holocaust history to Gaza students as part of its human rights curriculum for the next school year starting in September.

Haaretz also reported a series of statements by UN and Israeli officials accusing Palestinians for not fully understanding the tragedy that happened to the Jews, for divvying up facts, taking things out of context, and being reluctant to acknowledge Jewish suffering fearing it would diminish recognition of their own claims. The Israeli newspaper did not forget to remind Palestinians how the need to find a sanctuary for hundreds of thousands of Holocaust survivors contributed to the creation of Israel and that Palestinian recognition of the Holocaust is a necessary step toward peace.

A set of historical ironies arises from this absurd report. Most notable is that Israel’s billing of the Holocaust as a moral justification for the creation of Israel is historically refuted. Simply because it does not account for the fact that preparations for the creation of a Jewish State in Palestine had begun some half century before the Holocaust. Nor does it really tell us how many Holocaust survivors live in Israel today.

Yet this is not to suggest that we must accept this moral logic had there been a valid historical connection between the two events. For Palestinians are not responsible for the Holocaust and it is absurd to see their refusal to teach it to their children as accomplice, especially when they are being ethnically cleansed by Israel’s air forces on a daily basis.

Yet what does remain valid here is that linking the Palestinian Nakba with the Holocaust is still vital to understand how the latter has been always used to justify the former. The bulk of Gaza residents are themselves refugees whose dispossession was justified by Zionist misappropriation of the Holocaust tragedy.

Israel’s symmetry between the histories of the Holocaust and the Nakba is misleading for a simple reason. That is while the Holocaust is seen by Palestinians as part of European history and has nothing to do with Palestinian consciousness, the Nakba was generated by Israel and must be taught in its schools as part of its own history. Not to mention that for Palestinians the Nakba is an ongoing tragedy; that the refugee question is still unsettled and that Palestinians still live under occupation and ethnic suppression.

The question that persists is has Israel ever acknowledged Palestinian suffering and ongoing tragedy? The fact is that while countless books have been devoted in Israel and the West to denying Palestinian tragedy and distorting their history from Joan Peters’ notorious From Time Immemorial to this present day, there is no comparative Palestinian study on denying the Holocaust or challenging its scope.

I myself spent twelve years in an Arab school inside the so-called modern, democratic and liberal State of Israel and never heard of the word “Nakba.” The name Palestine itself has been banned in Arab schools for decades. We Palestinian students were never taught about the Islamic era in Palestine which lasted about thirteen centuries. Instead we were taught about Israel’s Independence Day, Zionist Peace Doves and Palestinian terrorism.

I vividly recall those moments when we were forced to stand still in memory of Israeli soldiers who had killed our own people. How else could we come to terms with the fact that many Palestinian Arabs in Israel continue to call Israel’s Independence Day the Independence Holiday?

Yes Palestinians are aware of the tragedy that befell the Jews. But they are also aware of the way it has been invested to justify their dispossession and displacement. They are aware of how by a strange change of fortune they became the victims of the victims; how the Zionist movement made the shift from victims to victimizers with terrifying ease; how Jewish suffering has been turned into political industry and discursive device for its colonial project in Palestine; how it has been used by Israel as political instrument and ideological weapon and seen as tantamount to the recognition of Jewish claims to the land.

To be sure, Palestinians do not refuse to teach or learn the Holocaust per se, but the Zionist perspective on the Holocaust. That is the way the tragic history of the Jews is being now turned into a modern version of civilizing mission in Gaza. Is there anything more absurd than besieging a people, ruining their life, slaughtering their children, destroying their schools and hospitals, and returning the next day to offer them lessons in multiculturalism?

Perhaps when Palestinians will have their full rights as a people, when they will live in freedom and justice and feel more secure in their homeland; they would be most happy to learn the history of the Holocaust, teach Jewish literature, and perhaps read Greek poetry.

La puissance de la mort, or an invitation to a Shunning.....

From Clif High over at Half Past Human:

It does no good to be pissed about it.

You are dead. They murdered you, and you need to get beyond the anger that this knowledge brings. There is yet work you must do.

The powers that be, and their political minions have been working this plan since the 1950's when Japan was forced into the GE designed nuclear reactors as part of the imposition of TPTB hegemony at the end of the Second Planetary War of the 20th century. Also known to academicians as 'WW2', this war not only nominally ended with nuclear release, but has now, all these decades later, been 'reborn' with nuclear release in Fukushima. ThePowersThatBe (Rothshield banksters, Rockefeller banksters, big oil, big pharma, and small soul politicians, and all zionist supporters) are determined to kill off a major part of us humans over these next few years to suit their perceived needs. They likely have, in the Fukushima nuclear plant implosion and meltdown, murdered several million of us....we just do not yet recognize that we (the afflicted) are soon-to-be dead.

There is no point to indulging in wild ass speculation about nuclear bombs being used to trigger the earthquake that caused the tsunami that swept away all the 'safety' equipment at Fukushima that led to the vaporization of hundreds of fuel rods that produced the radioactive poisoning of the planet that killed you. There is no point to putting your dwindling life energy into speculations about Haarp, or scalar weather wars, or any other perceived 'instrument' of your murder. None of it is likely factual, and TPTB are deliberately polluting the information stream to confuse your dying mind. They killed you. Deal with it.

There is no point to focusing on a single guilty person in your murder. It is a large, and well run conspiracy. Grasp this and give up the idea of taking revenge on any given witless stooge of a bankster or politician. To the conspiracy that is killing you, such people (low level conspirators) are sacrifices who were chosen exactly because they are expendable and easily replaced with the next, greed blinded, non thinking humanimal. It does you no good to seek to 'take them with you'. Besides, killing these people does not even slow the conspiracy down, and likely puts money in the pockets of TPTB in cleaning up the corpse and blood.

They have killed you, where you sit.

You are murdered. This is your power.

They (the stupid, duped, and controlled minions) are desperately trying to not be dead themselves. This is one of their many vulnerable points of weakness.

ThePowersThatBe, or those controlled (possessed) humans who think themselves 'lord and master' of this planet, are dependent on the weak-willed, easily-corrupted, small minded, gullible human minions. This is a huge damn weakness.

Time to take action.

What can be done? The Fukushima reactors are in full scale meltdown...how can we take action now?

Well, there exists on this planet now, technology involving thinking called 'closed time like curves' that can be used to save some humans. Many millions of us are already dead, but we can stop the damage now, by employing the CTLC technology. This technology is used in what is called the 'time industry'. Mostly it is a very secret, classified all the way up the rectum into the colon, military industry. There are groups in America, India, and China where the CTLC 'loops' are being explored and developed. These groups are controlled by corporations and political/military minions.

These 'loops' of time-stuff are held in magnetic containment fields in laboratories where the engineers in nominal control of the CTLC loops are fiddling around with trivialities such as reducing the 'experienced time' necessary to wash a load of dirty dishes at the direction of their 'masters', the gullible, greedy corporate and political minions.

We walking dead humans, the regular people teeming across this planet who just don't give a fuck about TPTB's grand goal of glorious global war and megadeath ritual over religious differences, need to get awake, and damn quick. We have very little time before the ground is littered with our splotchy, swollen, radioactive, rotting bodies.

What can we do?

Well, to start, let's agree to NOT fall into TPTB trap of violence. It just gives them a 'blood flush' that produces stiff dicks that they use to sexually abuse children. So let us be smarter than that.

We need to be asymmetric in our response. This means to develop a strategy and employ tactics against which they (tptb and their minions) have no defense.

One such tactic is an old one, well tried, but forgotten these days. This is 'shunning'. There are many aspects of shunning. Not only can you totally remove your energy from tptb by not being sucked into their games such as funding for political parties, or mega 'charities', or shopping at 'their' stores, but shunning also includes more active forms of resistance. As an instance, one could attend every political rally possible, and deliberately stand with their back to the speakers. Or attend, and simply start clapping and refuse to stop. When asked, present a note explaining your actions and keep right on clapping (la casserola variant). Or, attend the political rally and sing a 'patriotic' song, continuously, and when challenged, instantly flip the challenge back on the aggressor by insulting their patriotism. And other, similar variants.

Imagine how the political minions will react when their motorcade routes are lined with thousands of people who are not violently shouting and protesting, but standing, silent, and backs to the proceedings.

You laugh?! Well, indulge me once before you say that these tactics will not shatter the confidence of even the strongest personality, and also acknowledge that the minions as a class of people, are not known for their mental or emotional strength. Also acknowledge that humans need humans. What good does it do to strut the stage if the audience is shunning you....? What slimy scum minion political personality on teevee today would/could 'face' that kind of group pressure? None that are visible.

But what good does this do? Besides making us feel better (slightly, we are dying after all) in seeing the politicians piss themselves, what is to be accomplished? Well...see the point of the shunning is to get the attention of the politico's and then to inform them that their lives (as they knew them) are over until they get the 'time engineers' to work with the Closed Time-Like Curves to work on encapsulating and then degrading the danger within the remnants of Fukushima.

Oh, and while we are at it, why not put a 'time barrier bubble emergency containment system' at each and every one of the over 400/four hundred nuclear reactors around the planet, and also all the damn nuclear weapons facilities? Huh? Makes sense, eh?

There are many other variants of the shunning tactic that have been employed through out history. Do some creative searching and see the many forms employed. They work. Basically all of them tell this truth to power.....we know we cannot kill you (now), but we will take from you everything that makes your life worth living causing you to retreat to the little bunker in your mind where your fear rules you and your bowels, unless you do as you are told.

Get over the secrecy. Release the CTLC technology now. Fix this mess.

There is always one, mostly unstated, variant of the tactic, that scares the tptb into hot burning fear shits....coventry. That is next.....after all, if irradiated, and knowing myself to be dead, simply not yet prone, what the fuck do I care about paying my bills? Or obeying any of 'their' laws?

But, let us be smart, and for the sake of our personal karma, try the asymmetric, non violent route of shunning before heading into 'global jihad against banksters/tptb'.

Besides, shunning is more fun. It is actually amusing watching the minions try and figure out what the hell is going on....and then watching them piss themselves.

So, my challenge to the readers is to create new, non violent, variants of shunning and let us all see which politician pisses themselves first.

And a last point on this subject. It must be addressed. Violence. It is the last resort of the rational mind, and the first trap of the TPTB. However, it is still a legitimate tactic for change. And knowing this the ancient order of TPTB used to have a building in which they had people, like you and me, fight and kill each other for the amusement of TPTB, but also to eliminate the threat of violence to themselves by redirecting it. This building had a motto incised over its door. This motto was 'we who are about to die, salute you'. Well.....times have changed....can some one please go to that arch over the gladiator entrance to the Coliseum in Rome, and rewrite it so that it reads.....

“To TPTB, if it gets this far, we who are dying are going to gut you like fish....”

Oh, and directly to the CTLC engineers, it might help to call me about both the 'field sustenance' and 'interweaving' issues. There are a few ideas rattling around my old bald head that may assist your thinking.

with respect....get to work. You are dying and time is short.

Let’s start from the very beginning, a very good….

by anadianant


March 24, 2011


Greetings,

I’m sure many here are familiar with the famous Do Re Mi song from the Seminal Sound of Music.

Seems fitting. After the first day of my journey here, I saw a screen full of zeros when WordPress had a problem yesterday. No visitors, no comments, no nothing.

So I thought I’d take you all back to one of my earliest posts, where I laid out what I think is a core issue with us, the collective us and the “inner collective” us, the many me syndrome, so to speak. I do believe it is worth a read, especially as we see events on the outside spiraling out of control. Most such spiraling being driven of course by run-away technology. Interesting that a Nuclear reaction that is un-controllable is called a run-away reaction. Kind of makes you want to run-away any-way, ne?

But we must stand our ground, for our figurative roots need a place, howsoever temporary, to give us a way to reach deep.

I used to be a run-awayer. The new place perhaps. The new relationship perhaps. The new job perhaps? The new anything. This, here always looked un-worthy of my attention. That is not to say that movement is bad. Conscious movement, intuitive movement are excellent. A change of perspective movement. It’s running away that I’m speaking of.

As an interesting aside, have you noticed how poorly designed we are to be runners? really, even the runners amongst us need to examine that deeply, because in this fractal world, the out reflects the in and vice-versa. All the runners I know suffer greatly in the end for their efforts. Weakened hearts, weakened joints, shin splints… the gamut.

We are not meant to be runners. We are meant to be masters of the moment. Here and now. Not there and then. Stand your ground, literal and figurative, inner and outer. Notice an Aikido master. Usually rotund, seemingly heavy. See the Bushi-do sensei, wizened and wrinkled. Try then to pierce there here and now. Impossible. And yet they are everywhere they need to be, here and now. If that sounds confusing, it was meant to be. Now and here do not Exist in logic, per se. They are already gone, gone, gone, gone……now now now now now now….. there is deep wisdom hidden in the line just past….. now now now now……… there is a pulse to everything, alternating, end-less wisdom…. now here now here now here now here…..in and out…… see even the particle-wave duality…. now a wave now a particle, now a wave now a particle…. mind bending, ne?

Back to the now-here, spiraling out of control, running away.

Here is my take on it, written in response to an e-mail article my friend sent me, asking me what I thought of the requiem someone had written on the Death of Solzhenitsyn and our obsession with technology…

Shroud Of Silence Descends Upon America As End Nears


“Oppression can only survive through silence.”


WhatDoesItMean.com

19 March 2011


Special Report By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

As our world continues spinning out of control today due to the horrific events in Japan and the chaos of rebellion sweeping the Middle East, following a year (2010) that the global insurance giant Munich Re named as the second worst in history for natural disasters, shocking news has arrived from America showing that the long feared “shroud of silence” is about to fall upon them thus completing their transformation from being one of the freest nations we’ve ever known, to becoming the most oppressed.

Fueling the fears that Americas descent into information darkness is at hand this week were: 1.) Obama’s proposal of sweeping revisions to US copyright law making the streaming of audio and video content over the Internet a federal felony; 2.) The FBI’s seizing of thousands of websites prior to their owners being convicted of any crimes; 3.) America’s third largest newspaper, The New York Times, announcing that on 28 March it was erecting a “pay-wall” around its website thus making it unaffordable to all but the elite classes; and 4.) The discovery that the US Military is preparing to deploy software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence Internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.

The US Military’s use of software to manipulate and control the American people is especially insidious as it will be rolled out on their already existing platforms of message boards such as the Above Network LLC owned website AboveTopSecret.Com that is funded by the Central Intelligence Agencies (CIA) venture capital arm In-Q-Tel and that purports itself to be the “largest and most popular web site for alternative topics”, but instead, many believe, continually provides its members list to the US Department of Homeland Security while smearing all thought and opinions critical of the US power structure and its elite leaders.

Important to note are that all of the actions being taken by the US government to suppress their citizens were designed to be completed by 11 May 2011 to coincide with the date that all US States must be in compliance with what is called the Real ID Act, which, in effect, is a defacto National ID Card system that has been labeled a “nightmare” and is feared by many Americans to be the precursor to the prophesied “Mark of the Beast”. [Note: In our previous report “Virgin Mary Issues Grave Warning, But Angel Says US Can Be Saved” the date of 5/11 was still unfulfilled, this may not be the date referred to, but the coincidence is interesting to say the least.]

The reason behind the US government and its elite classes creating a totalitarian society is best summarized up by the noted American trend forecaster Gerald Celente, of the Trends Research Institute, who states: “When the money stops flowing down to the man in the street, the blood starts flowing in the streets.”

They Take Our Money For WAR!!



Another war has been started against Libya in the name of Humanitarian action; another war to expend American money in exchange for favor with the political party who will eventually control the country; another war in which American soldiers will be used as chattel as we march closer to a New World Order; another war justified by mass media, convincing American automatons that it is for our mutual freedoms and the protection of America. The reasons will vary that they will present to We the People in order to justify another war but they will never tell us the truth for these actions.


They will tell us this war is to combat terrorism when that very "terrorism" represents the actions of a people standing against a world power who is destroying the very fabric of their existence and is to them an act of protecting themselves in a war brought on by Western greed.

They will tell us it is for humanitarian action when the American initiated war against Iraq cost the lives of over a million civilians. Civilians: Women and children and unarmed men, trying to live the life given to them but having that life taken so easily by Western intervention. Civilians who knew nothing of the power struggle in the New World Order, now dead.

They will tell us it is to protect the American way when that "way" is taking us all toward a future where freedom will be a commodity bought and sold as part of a Global workforce. The destruction of Unions is a major step toward this goal.

They will tell us that Wikileaks, the people who uncovered the real reasons and secrecy behind American "Intervention" is un-American and new age cyber-terrorism when they are the ones who had spawned it with their secrecy and villainous acts of global dominance. They still have Bradley Manning suffering torture for his act of true Patriotism.

They will have the mass media parade in the trenches of faux-patriotism to anoint a new generation of the blind hiding behind the guise of Christianity while condemning anyone who does not conform to this new Order. Islam is evil they will tell us. They will claim that the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to take over in these countries if we do not act. They will and have mislead America into a false action of protecting ourselves from Islam when we should be more concerned about the threat from our own government.

They will also tell us to condemn those among us who will stand up to them and label us as traitors and Liberal demons while they rob this country of its meaning and their corporate backers race to profit from a new cultural kill zone. Madison, Wisconsin saw the rising up of a people but F.E.M.A. camps stand ready to imprison many if a National uprising should occur.

They will tell us many things to justify the means but none of these reasons are what this country stands for. The new Patriots are self proclaimed, self-labeled and self-touting devils trying to convince us all with the last of their breaths that we should be supporting their greed in the name of Liberty. These people stand behind lapels and love of God when the only god they know is He who hides in the shadows of death: The God of Money. The devils we know, the demons of hate and the greedy of our system strengthened by the people's ignorance and controlling all information to further their message of hate.

We know them for the masks they wear have been seen many times in the history of this world and they stand united for a system that favors the few and imprisons the rest in chains woven from the strongest metals of deception. They have been here before but we had defeated them. Now, they have the people behind them; the poor, blinded people so intoxicated by materialism and excess and so fearful of losing it that they parade behind the Masters hoping to be among the chosen who will survive the new global holocaust.

Today, we stand on yet another battle ground in the name of this American fiction called freedom while the poor and downtrodden are stripped of their rights, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They take our money for War while shutting down the schools; they take our money for War while denying the voice of a people; they take our money for War while our fellow citizens lose their homes; they take our money for War while our national infrastructure crumbles"They take our money for WAR.

Defendant Convicted of Minting His Own Currency

Department of Justice Press Release


From the FBI, looks like we are going to be stuck with worthless paper currency indefinitly now! They threw the book at this guy for trying to give folks an honest alternative............so much for living in a "free" country!

For Immediate Release

March 18, 2011 United States Attorney's Office

Western District of North Carolina

Contact: (704) 344-6222

Defendant Convicted of Minting His Own Currency

STATESVILLE, NC—Bernard von NotHaus, 67, was convicted today by a federal jury of making, possessing, and selling his own coins, announced Anne M. Tompkins, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. Following an eight-day trial and less than two hours of deliberation, von NotHaus, the founder and monetary architect of a currency known as the Liberty Dollar, was found guilty by a jury in Statesville, North Carolina, of making coins resembling and similar to United States coins; of issuing, passing, selling, and possessing Liberty Dollar coins; of issuing and passing Liberty Dollar coins intended for use as current money; and of conspiracy against the United States. The guilty verdict concluded an investigation which began in 2005 and involved the minting of Liberty Dollar coins with a current value of approximately $7 million. Joining the U.S. Attorney Anne M. Tompkins in making today’s announcement are Edward J. Montooth, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI, Charlotte Division; Russell F. Nelson, Special Agent in Charge of the United States Secret Service, Charlotte Division; and Sheriff Van Duncan of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the evidence introduced during the trial, von NotHaus was the founder of an organization called the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve and Internal Revenue Code, commonly known as NORFED and also known as Liberty Services. Von NotHaus was the president of NORFED and the executive director of Liberty Dollar Services, Inc. until on or about September 30, 2008.

Von NotHaus designed the Liberty Dollar currency in 1998 and the Liberty coins were marked with the dollar sign ($); the words dollar, USA, Liberty, Trust in God (instead of In God We Trust); and other features associated with legitimate U.S. coinage. Since 1998, NORFED has been issuing, disseminating, and placing into circulation the Liberty Dollar in all its forms throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. NORFED’s purpose was to mix Liberty Dollars into the current money of the United States. NORFED intended for the Liberty Dollar to be used as current money in order to limit reliance on, and to compete with, United States currency.

In coordination with the Department of Justice, on September 14, 2006, the United States Mint issued a press release and warning to American citizens that the Liberty Dollar was “not legal tender.” The U.S. Mint press release and public service announcement stated that the Department of Justice had determined that the use of Liberty Dollars as circulating money was a federal crime.

Article I, section 8, clause 5 of the United States Constitution delegates to Congress the power to coin money and to regulate the value thereof. This power was delegated to Congress in order to establish and preserve a uniform standard of value and to insure a singular monetary system for all purchases and debts in the United States, public and private. Along with the power to coin money, Congress has the concurrent power to restrain the circulation of money which is not issued under its own authority in order to protect and preserve the constitutional currency for the benefit of all citizens of the nation. It is a violation of federal law for individuals, such as von NotHaus, or organizations, such as NORFED, to create private coin or currency systems to compete with the official coinage and currency of the United States.

........and so what about the Federal Reserve coining our money??? They are a private operation too!

Von NotHaus, who remains free on bond, faces a sentence of up to 15 years’ imprisonment on count two of the indictment and a fine of not more than $250,000. Von NotHaus faces a prison sentence of five years and fines of $250,000 on both counts one and three. In addition, the United States is seeking the forfeiture of approximately 16,000 pounds of Liberty Dollar coins and precious metals, currently valued at nearly $7 million. The forfeiture trial, which began today before United States District Court Judge Richard Voorhees, will resume on April 4, 2011 in the federal courthouse in Statesville. Judge Voorhees has not yet set a date for the sentencing of von NotHaus.

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict. “While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country,” she added. “We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”

The case was investigated by the FBI, Buncombe County Sheriff’s Department, and the U.S. Secret Service, in cooperation with and invaluable assistance of the United States Mint. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Jill Westmoreland Rose and Craig D. Randall, and the forfeiture trial is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Tom Ascik and Ben Bain Creed.

What Are You Looking For?

I come before you today in all humility. You are here today because of your desire to find the truth, to find a plausible explanation of the events and methods and reasons for the turmoil and tragedy that is encompassing our world. Those of us who parse the blogs and the alternative news sources are searching, "knocking at the door" so to speak, looking for that which will strengthen us in spirit and give us understanding and peace in our hearts that we may continue another day on this world.


There are many theories, many explanations, many modern day prophets supplying us with "truths"! Are they the real deal? Are they just tools of the PTB? I cannot answer that for you, each of us must look deep into our own pools of truth and determine this for ourselves.

The events that those of us of this generation are witnessing are awe inspiring indeed! These are the times that the prophets of old, those who have sought spiritual awakening, no matter what culture or theology that they came from, have been pleading with the world to prepare for.

Natural disasters, massive carnage caused by those "elite" (read: Pharisaic Zionist Judaism) that have been given this particular time to "reign" over the the earth are being witnessed across our planet. Famine, hunger, economic turmoil, wars, disease, racism, "holy wars", division and unbridled greed are being made manifest for those of us perched at the end of this Age.

As I type these words, I am fully aware that there are many among us that have hardened their heart against all things spiritual. There are those who will deny the Divine, the Higher Power, the Great Spirit, the all-powerful Creator. Because of the many lies the world has laid at their feet, they are unable to believe that which can only be perceived on a spiritual plane. They fall back to their childhood where they were lied to about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. They look at religion and see the million of souls killed and persecuted in the name of God and are filled with loathing at the atrocities perpetrated by these human inspired organisations of deceit!

I will now ask you to contemplate, if you will, that organised religion was created to deceive and control those who seek the truth but are spiritually weak. The powers that now control our world have been operating against mankind since the very beginning. These powers and principalities, these purveyors of wickedness that reside in places of earthly power, have only one goal that drives them. That goal is to cause the spiritual demise of humankind!

If you will accept my premise, then the following words may be of great importance to you!

As this Age begins to close, we will be exposed to many false yet believable doctrines explaining the calamities befalling humankind. We will be given seemingly correct ways of fixing the problems of this world by "elites" that appear in positions of power. Do not be deceived! With all diligence test the Spirits of these messengers of the end times. Test their words and doctrines with Truth that comes from your heart. Truth that resides deep inside of yourself that has been planted there from the beginning of your life by the all powerful, merciful and loving Creator!

The time has come to put away the illusions of childhood and become adults with fully aware minds and hearts. Do not store up your treasures in earthy goods where thieves can steal and disaster can destroy! Store up your treasure in Kindness and Goodwill to your fellow man. Store up treasure of Truth and Love that you may receive the reward promised to all of mankind by all the spiritual belief systems that exists.

Although at this time there are many roads that lead to the truth, they will all converge shortly! Those that seek truth with a pure and sincere heart will find their way! It is the will of our Creator. It is his way of separating the"wheat from the chaff"!

Dear readers, I implore you to be the "Wheat"! Not all will comprehend this message, but do not give up your Hope! To whom much is given, much will be required. To whom little is given, little is required!

Therefore, as long as you knock on the door of Truth, it will be opened for you! My hope is that you will knock on that door with all your heart, mind, and soul.

This age is closing, as for the time it will happen, I am not prepared to say.

What I do know is signs abound that the season of change is approaching!

In Love and Hope,

Avops

Washington's UN War Resolution on Libya

Mostly Water

Washington's UN War Resolution on Libya - by Stephen Lendman

On March 18, Washington bullied Security Council members to approve Resolution 1973, a measure authorizing war on Libya. The 10 - 0 vote included five abstentions from China, Russia, Germany, Brazil and India, objecting to sweeping terms, including wide latitude for belligerence on bogus "humanitarian" grounds.

In fact, it's to replace one despot with another, perhaps assassinate Gaddafi, colonize Libya, control its oil, gas and other resources, exploit its people, privatize its state industries under Western control, establish new US bases, use them for greater regional control, and perhaps balkanize the country like Yugoslavia and Iraq.

A same day White House press release headlined, "Readout of President Obama's Calls with (UK) Prime Minister Cameron and (French) President Sarkozy," saying:

"The leaders agreed that Libya must immediately comply with all terms of the resolution and that violence against the civilian population of Libya must cease."

Obama also ordered Gaddafi to implement an immediate ceasefire or face military intervention, saying terms were non-negotiable.

The resolution authorizes "all necessary measures...to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack," including a no-fly zone and illegal air strikes.

On March 18, Reuters headlined, "US Pushing for Air Strikes, No-Fly Zone in Libya," saying:

Washington urges "air strikes against Libyan tanks and heavy artillery."

AP reported that an unnamed British MP said UK "forces were on stand by for air strikes and could be mobilized as soon as" March 17. French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said his country will join Britain and Washington in launching attacks. Doing so will be illegal aggression, America's speciality, currently waging illegal wars against Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, plus proxy regional ones.

The latest involves Saudi troops, at Obama's behest, invading Bahrain guns blazing, murdering civilians, arresting opposition leaders and activists, denying wounded men and women medical treatment, occupying the country, and instituting police state control.

For his part, Gaddafi responded to belligerence. He didn't instigate it. International law supports him. A previous article explained, accessed through the following link:

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2011/03/pack-journalism-promotes-war-on-libya.html

Nonetheless, Resolution 1973 authorizes "shock and awe," entailing mass destruction and "collateral damage," assuring heavy civilian casualties.

Perhaps outsmarting the West, Libya's Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa announced an "immediate cease-fire and the stoppage of all military operations," knowing NATO's alternative without it. In response, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said, "We will judge him by his actions, not his words."

Addressing the House of Commons, he said Britain will deploy warplanes, "air-to-air refueling, and surveillance aircraft" over Libyan airspace, violating its territory. "Preparations....have already started, and in the coming hours they will move to airbases from where they can take the necessary action," he added.

France, Britain, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will attend a Saturday meeting in Paris, along with EU, African Union, and Arab League officials to discuss further action against Libya. Knowing the threat, Gaddafi said his government will comply with all UN resolution terms.

Foreign Minister Koussa confirmed it, citing "strange and unreasonable" terms, noting signs that Western belligerence is planned, joined by two or more Arab states (perhaps Saudi Arabia and Bahrain), saying the resolution violates Libyan sovereignty and UN Charter authority, prohibiting outside intervention.

After the vote, Obama met with National Security Council members to consider options, coordinating them with Britain and France, his main co-belligerents for war. Already, US warships, hundreds of marines, and surveillance aircraft are deployed nearby, planning on intervention, including boots on the ground short of occupation.

On March 18, New York Times writers Elisabeth Busmiller, David Kirkpatrick and Alan Cowell headlined, "Allies Press Libya, Saying Declaration of Cease-Fire Is Not Enough," stating:

Washington, Britain and France "pushed forward against Libya," saying Gaddafi's declaration won't deter military intervention. British Prime Minister Cameron suggested it, saying:

"To pass a resolution like this and then just stand back and hope someone in the region would enforce it is wrong," adding that after Saturday's Paris meeting, Gaddafi will be told what's expected.

In other words, unacceptable terms may be demanded that no sovereign leader would accept, including resigning as head of state, withdrawing all forces from eastern Libya, as well as other resistance sites (like Misurata and Zawiya), effectively dividing the country. Failing to comply then would provide cause to intervene, no matter how lawlessly.

On March 17, Secretary of State Clinton suggested how, saying a no-fly zone entails bombing targets inside Libya to protect planes and pilots, by taking out command and control capability, as well as weapons able to down aircraft.

In other words, war will be waged to prevent it, to protect Libyans and save lives by killing them, as well as inflicting widespread destruction, what's always planned when America attacks.

On March 18, Stratfor Global Intelligence headlined, "Libya Crisis: Implications of the Cease-Fire," saying:

Gaddafi's action "complicates (Western) efforts to spearhead a campaign against Libyan government troops," especially after Tripoli said it's ready to open "all dialogue channels with everyone interested in the territorial unity of Libya."

Moreover, it stressed protecting civilians and said it's inviting international community and NGO representatives "to check the facts on the ground by sending fact-finding missions so that they can take the right decision."

In other words, Gaddafi hopes his reversal neutralizes the West's will for war, weakening its resolve, isolating America, Britain and France, the main three co-belligerents. Without just cause to attack, doing so will be clear naked aggression.

Al Jazeera's War on Libya

Increasingly, Al Jazeera sounds more like BBC and America's media, providing managed, not real news. It fell far short covering uprisings in Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, Algeria, and since mid-February, Libya.

Professor As'ad AbuKhalil's Angry Arab News Service called its Arabic coverage "blatantly political." As for Bahrainians, they're "on their own now: there is no Al Jazeera to support their cause and expose the regime, and the US and EU will do their best to rationalize and support government repression. Shame on Al Jazeera Arabic for abandoning the people of Bahrain, and for even invoking a sectarian element in their coverage, implying that only Shi'ites are protesting."

It's Libyan coverage has been especially one-sided, backing pro-Western interests. In Arabic and English, it's featured National Front for the Salvation of Libya officials with ties to the CIA and Saudi Arabia, pretending they're credible sources. Moreover, they gave Muhammad as-Senussi air time, Libya's so-called heir to the Senussi Crown, calling for international community allies to oust Gaddafi and "stop the ongoing 'massacre,' " they instigated.

On March 18, it headlined "Libya declares ceasefire but fighting goes on," saying:

"....government forces continued to fire on the rebel-held western city of Misurata," unnamed witnesses claimed.

Other reports used unverified evidence, including alleged air strikes Russian satellite imagery couldn't detect, saying none were seen or damage on the ground.

As a result, Al Jazeera's credibility is open to question. Bad reporting makes it all suspect, what's painfully clear watching one-sided Libyan accounts, distorting facts for Western interests, aiding its drive to war.

Wis. Dem’s Votes Won’t Count—Another Blow to Democracy

by Tula Connell, Mar 15, 2011



Proving once again that state Senate Republicans don’t believe in democracy, Wisconsin Sen. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald yesterday said the votes of state Senate Democrats won’t count.

Won’t count?

Here’s Fitzgerald to state Senate Republicans:

…when taking roll call votes on amendments and bills during executive sessions, Senate Democrats’ votes will not be reflected in the Records of Committee Proceedings or the Senate Journal. They are free to attend hearings, listen to testimony, debate legislation, introduce amendments, and cast votes to signal their support/opposition, but those votes will not count, and will not be recorded.

The retaliatory move is directed at the 14 state Senate Democrats who left Wisconsin so Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the majority Republican legislature would not ram through a vote taking away the right of public employees to collectively bargain for good middle-class jobs.

The Republicans in the Senate passed the bill in a dirty tricks move last week and their latest move againt slashes the democratic process.

The Deadly MOX Fuel Story

Jeff Rense Program
From Gary Jacobucci

3-14-11

Blown Fukushima 3 Was The Third Japanese Reactor To Load MOX

August 10, 2010

http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/newsarticle.aspx?id=28211

Tokyo Electric Power Company's (Tepco's) Fukushima I unit 3 is set to become the third Japanese nuclear reactor to load mixed oxide (MOX) fuel after receiving approval from the governor of Fukushima Prefecture, Yukei Sato. The unit follows Kyushu Electric's Genkai 3, which started using MOX fuel in November 2009, and Shikoku's Ikata 3, which was loaded with some MOX fuel in March 2010. According to the Denki Shimbun, the 760 MWe boiling water reactor will be loaded with MOX fuel by 21 August and the unit will restart in late September. Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has so far approved the use of MOX fuel in ten reactors, but utilities must also secure approval from prefectural governments before they can go ahead and use the fuel, which contains plutonium recovered from spent nuclear fuel.

MOX Fuel Arrives In Japan

http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/nn20090519a2.html

Kyodo News
May 19, 2009

Two cargo ships carrying recycled nuclear fuel arrived Monday in Japan from France for the planned introduction of plutonium-thermal power generation in the fall, power company officials said.

One of the two armed ships entered a port near Chubu Electric Power Co.'s Hamaoka nuclear power plant in Omaezaki, Shizuoka Prefecture, the first stop for the delivery of plutonium and uranium mixed oxide, or MOX, fuel.

The ships will also deliver the fuel, a combination of uranium and plutonium extracted from spent nuclear fuel, to Kyushu Electric Power Co.'s Genkai nuclear power plant in Saga Prefecture and Shikoku Electric Power Co.'s Ikata plant in Ehime Prefecture.

The fuel was manufactured in France on an order placed by the three utilities and will be used in conventional uranium-burning light-water reactors.

The Pacific Pintail and Pacific Heron left the northern French port of Cherbourg in early March and reached Japan after sailing through the southwestern Pacific via the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.

The Pacific Heron was escorted by Japan Coast Guard ships and helicopters as it entered the port of Omaezaki.

Antinuclear groups staged demonstrations against the pluthermal power generation plan, shouting, "No transport of dangerous MOX fuel." Pluthermal is a Japanese word combining the English words plutonium and thermal.

Critics point to the potential dangers of MOX fuel, warning that use of fuel containing plutonium exposes residents to greater health risks in the event of serious accidents.

Kyushu Electric plans to put MOX fuel into the No. 3 reactor of the Genkai plant at the time of the next regular inspection in August.

Japan's Nuclear Program

What is MOX fuel?

Fuel consisting of a mixture of uranium and plutonium oxides is referred to as a MOX (mixed oxide) fuel. Uranium fuel consists of enriched uranium in which the concentration of uranium 235 -- the combustible element in natural uranium -- is artificially increased. In MOX fuel, by contrast, anything from 4 to 9 percent plutonium is used in place of enriched uranium to mix with natural uranium or with the uranium that is left after enrichment (i.e., depleted uranium).

Japan's MOX Program

Part of Japan's nuclear policy is to implement the MOX utilization program; that is, to irradiate MOX fuel in conventional light water reactors (LWRs). Because of the fact that discussions are still under way with the local governments and citizens, the commercial use of MOX fuel has yet to begin. Nevertheless, as mentioned at the outset, Japan, scarce in energy resources, is continuing its policy of establishing a nuclear fuel cycle. MOX utilization, therefore, remains a crucial part of completing the fuel cycle. The Japanese electricity industry intends to continue its efforts to garner support and understanding from related parties in order to carry out the MOX utilization program in accordance with this policy.

Japanese Nuclear Meltdown Means Detrimental Health Effects Worldwide

Infowars.com

Marco Torres
March 14, 2011

After repeated denials by the Japanese Government insisting that radiation leakage from their nuclear power plants was a non-issue, recent video and reported evidence confirms the horrific truth. Japan is now preparing for the worst case scenario evacuating hundreds of thousands of people. The radioactive release may soon reach Canada and the United States and exposure may last months. Recent media reports have downplayed the seriousness of Japan’s quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex on Monday, stating that it “is unlikely to have led to a large escape of radioactivity,” the Japanese government said.

Prior to the an explosion on Saturday, the media reported the radiation level were 1000 times higher than the permissible level.

Some videos have now clearly shown the full scale of the explosion which is “unlikely” to have cause anything but a major release of radioactive uranium into the atmosphere. The radiation plume will eventually travel thousands of miles towards Canada and the United States and then circulating the planet.


“It is obvious the Japanese are attempting to cover up the deadly seriousness of events unfolding in their country,” reported Prisonplanet.com.

As a result of alternative video reports and journalists, the Japanese government is now changing their story, admitting over 300,000 people evacuated and possibly tens of thousands dead.

About 2,000 bodies were found on Monday on two shores of Miyagi prefecture in northeast Japan.

According to the Washington Post, Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant did not find a way to stabilize overheated reactors and feared the possibility of partial nuclear meltdown, which could potentially cause a further release of radioactive material, Japan’s top government spokesman said Sunday. Engineers were having trouble, in particular, with two units at the nuclear facility.

The emergency flooding of two stricken reactors with seawater and the resulting steam releases were a desperate step intended to avoid a much bigger problem: a full meltdown of the nuclear cores in two reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. On Monday, an explosion blew the roof off the second reactor, not damaging the core, officials said, but presumably leaking more radiation.

So far, Japanese officials have said the melting of the nuclear cores in the two plants is assumed to be “partial,” and the amount of radioactivity measured outside the plants, though twice the level Japan considers safe, has been relatively modest.

According to most recent information, the breakdown occurred because of the complete loss of electric supplies as a result of the earthquake. The cooling system in the reactor zone went out of order, and the reactor began to heat up.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said officials were acting on the assumption that a meltdown could be underway at Fukushima Daiichi’s unit 3, and that it was “highly possible” a meltdown was underway at its unit 1 reactor, where an explosion destroyed a building a day earlier.

Health Effects

Authorities made preparations to distribute potassium iodide pills and warned people in the vicinity to stay inside and cover their mouths if they ventured outdoors.

Radiation poisoning is a form of damage to organ and other tissues caused by excessive exposure to ionizing radiation. Radiation exposure can increase the probability of developing several diseases, mainly cancer, tumours, and genetic damage. It is generally associated with acute (a single large) exposure such as that being released from a nuclear meltdown.

The amount of radiation exposure is usually expressed in a unit called millirem (mrem). Radiation doses of more than 5000 mrem/year are considered unsafe, regardless of source. In the United States, the average person is exposed to an effective dose equivalent of approximately 360 mrem (whole-body exposure) per year from all sources.

A radiation dose calculator can approximate values and general averages for typical annual radiaiton exposure. Nuclear technology expert Brad McCarthy stated that “exposure from a nuclear meltdown could fall between 100,000 to 1,000,000 mrem which could cause severe radiation sickness to the people in Japan with increasing likelihood of fatality.”


Is Radioactive Poison Prevention Possible?

In a nutshell, not really. There is no current method available to adequately prevent exposure to radiation from being absorbed in the human body.

Supplements such as kelp and potassium iodide do have a preventative effect on the thyroid, but they don’t prevent exposure to other body organs and tissues. They cannot prevent radioactive iodine from entering the body.

Iodine in kelp is naturally in the form of potassium iodide. However, potassium iodine is not very soluble in water and may be difficult for your body to easily use. Potassium iodide has actually been shown to congest the thyroid gland when taken in high doses and is how Hashimotos thyroiditis was first discovered in Japanese citizens consuming too many sea vegetables.

How Does Potassium Iodide Work?

Potassium iodide (also called KI) is a salt of stable (not radioactive) iodine. Stable iodine is an important chemical needed by the body to make thyroid hormones. Most of the stable iodine in our bodies comes from the food we eat. KI is stable iodine in a medicine form.

Following a radiological or nuclear event, radioactive iodine may be released into the air and then be breathed into the lungs. Radioactive iodine may also contaminate the local food supply and get into the body through food or through drink. When radioactive materials get into the body through breathing, eating, or drinking, we say that “internal contamination” has occurred. In the case of internal contamination with radioactive iodine, the thyroid gland quickly absorbs this chemical. Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can then injure the gland. Because non-radioactive KI acts to block radioactive iodine from being taken into the thyroid gland, it can help protect this gland from injury.

KI cannot reverse the health effects caused by radioactive iodine once damage to the thyroid has occurred. It cannot protect the body from radioactive elements other than radioactive iodine—if radioactive iodine is not present, taking KI is not protective.

Iodized table salt also contains iodine; iodized table salt contains enough iodine to keep most people healthy under normal conditions. However, table salt does not contain enough iodine to block radioactive iodine from getting into your thyroid gland. You should not use table salt as a substitute for KI.

Knowing that KI may not give a person 100% protection against radioactive iodine is important. How well KI blocks radioactive iodine depends on how much time passes between contamination with radioactive iodine and the taking of KI (the sooner a person takes KI, the better), how fast KI is absorbed into the blood, and the total amount of radioactive iodine to which a person is exposed.

The thyroid glands of a fetus and of an infant are most at risk of injury from radioactive iodine. Young children and people with low stores of iodine in their thyroid are also at risk of thyroid injury.

Please review the CDC fact sheet for more information on KI.

'BABYLON THE GREAT' IS ISRAEL

I found this post today and thought it might be of interest to some of my readers. Just take it for what it gives you, if it gives you nothing, sorry! If it gives you something, good!  From: The National Prayer Network.

'BABYLON THE GREAT' IS ISRAEL

By Rev. Ted Pike
29 Mar 10

In the mystical book of Revelation, the apostle John sees a scarlet woman called “ Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.” She is drunk on the blood of Christians and rides a many-horned and -headed beast. John was told this woman symbolized a city that would one day rule and corrupt the world. Who is this woman? Does she exist today?

The answer lies thousands of years in history, in a story of redemption, love and betrayal – recounted in Ezekiel 16. This stern yet tender allegory tells how God rescued Israel from death as a rejected infant and chose her for His spiritual bride – not because of her goodness but out of His compassion. From the furnace of Egyptian bondage, the tiny Hebrew nation burst forth. She plagued Pharaoh, crossed the divided sea and finally lived under Moses’ leadership in the desert of Sinai. There God entered the covenant of spiritual marriage with His bride. But that happiness was so brief!

[Israel] you trusted in your beauty and played the harlot because of your fame and poured out your harlotry on every passer-by who might be willing… (Ezekiel 16:15).

From Moses through the prophets, Israel is repeatedly characterized as an imperious whore. In more than 80 instances, she is specifically denounced as a harlot or lewd woman. Isaiah and the other pre-exilic prophets aimed their wrath at Jerusalem: “How the faithful city has become a harlot!" (Isaiah 1:21) Isaiah denounced apostate Jews as “sons of a sorceress, offspring of an adulterer and a prostitute” (Isaiah 57:3).

Did Israel’s evil ways end in the dusty annals of the Old Testament? No. Israel rejected Jesus Christ, her Messiah. She has never yet repented. This compels an inevitable conclusion: Israel of today and tomorrow is the same symbolic woman once chosen as God’s unique bride but ultimately divorced and cast away because of her spiritual adultery.Israel is that “Mother of Harlots” John saw on the beast of Revelation 17 and 18.

Israel was the first to marry God (Christ) and be spiritually one with Him. Thus the position she enjoyed as a spiritual bride was unique to her. Likewise, only apostate Israel can be the “mother” of spiritual whoredom. When she was chosen as Christ’s bride, other nations were disobedient like a child to its parent. Only Israel was made capable of a wife’s infidelity. As a result, when she became a spiritual whore, she was indelibly marked, “Mother of Harlots.” Jeremiah said, “You had a harlot's forehead, you refused to be ashamed.” (Jer. 3:3) Other apostate systems may be spiritual harlots but only Israel is “mother” of that scarlet sorority. And without repentance, neither time nor wanderings can remove that epithet from her. When Israel shouted, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” her resurrected spouse banished her. The Jewish people were condemned to wander like a woman divorced for adultery, perpetually looking for that substitute husband (anti-Christ) who would take the place of the One she killed.

The Great City

What has happened to that rejected unfaithful wife today?

Revelation 17 confronts us with the specter of a city “which reigns over the kings of the earth.” It has physical power—more wealth and importance than any other city—but also spiritual power, embodying the full potentiality of human degeneracy. “What city is like this great city?” the merchants of the earth will wail. This city is so commercially important that when she falls, world trade also comes crashing down. The title “the great city” is exclusive. There will doubtless be other powerful cities in the end time but John witnesses “the great city,” an unequaled center of trade, political power, culture and human bondage.

And to whom does that term refer? In Revelation, “the great city” (hey polis megaley in Greek) is used to clearly refer to Jerusalem, capitol of the Jewish people! When the two witnesses are killed, their dead bodies lie in the streets of “the great city (hey polis megaley). "... Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11:8). This unmistakably implies that powerful, corrupt Babylon and the great city “ Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified,” are the same city… Jerusalem.

The apostle Peter, bishop of Jerusalem, also calls Jerusalem “ Babylon.” He sends greetings from the church in Jerusalem saying, “She who is in Babylon…sends you greetings” (1 Peter 5:13). Peter never visited Babylon. He is clearly identifying the moral cesspool of antiquity, Babylon, with the city where Christ was killed.

There are other reasons to believe “ Babylon the Great” means the Jewish city. When she is destroyed, Revelation describes the fall of this city as different from that of “Gentile” (ethnos) cities. “And the great city was divided into three parts and the cities of the nations (Gentiles) fell…” (Revelation 16:19) A city which is not Gentile must, of course, be Jewish.

Also, Rev. 18:24 says that the great city is guilty for having shed the blood of the Hebrew prophets and righteous from the beginning of history. Jesus said the same concerning the rulers of Jerusalem, the Pharisees: "that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar" (Matt. 23:35).

Yet even from earliest post-apostolic times, Christians have misread Revelation’s prophecy. They thought Babylon the Great meant Rome, which has traditionally been described as sitting on seven hills. Yet the city of Rome encompasses many more than seven hills. This is not true of Jerusalem. Ernest L. Martin, Ph.D. points out:

The City of Jerusalem as it existed in the time of Christ Jesus was also reckoned to be a 'City of Seven Hills.' This fact was well recognized in Jewish circles. In the Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer, an 8th century A.D. midrashic [Talmudic] narrative (Section 10), the writer mentioned without commentary (showing that the understanding was well known and required no defense) that, "Jerusalem is situated on seven hills." ("The Seven Hills of Jerusalem” http://www.askelm.com/prophecy/p000201.htm)

Armenian Christians, living for centuries in Palestine, taught their schoolchildren that the seven hills are: Mt. of Olives, Mt. Scopus, Mt. Zion, Mt. Moriah (the Temple mount), Golgotha, Hill of Moses, and Mt. Herzl.

Scripture also describes only one city as center of world rule in the last days, and that is Jerusalem. Paul states clearly that the anti-Christ will declare his one-world authority from the temple at Jerusalem, where he proclaims he is God. (2 Thess. 2:4) When the two witnesses resist him, they do not battle a papal anti-Christ but “the wicked profane prince of Israel” in Jerusalem. (Ezek. 21:25) These scriptures point to Jerusalem as the epicenter of one-world rebellion against God; Jerusalem and Babylon are one!

Modern Judaism is Babylonian

There is more depth to the metaphor. Judaism literally is Babylonian, more than nearly any other religion or culture. Most of its religious laws and traditions, including the Babylonian Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah), come from nearly 1,600 years Jews spent on the fertile plains of Shinar. Few religions have a deeper tradition of occult. Revelation describes Babylon the Great deceiving the world through her “sorceries” and the Jewish encyclopedias tell us it was Judaism which carried Babylon’s black arts, demonology and astrology to the West.

This is as true today as ever. Jewish supremacism today is not only erecting a political, financial, commercial world empire but spewing filth on the nations through their movie and TV media. (link to Jews in media article) They spearhead freedom-destroying, pro-homosexual hate crimes laws worldwide and abet all forms of left-wing and anti-Christ radicalism through their “civil liberties” fronts such as ADL, ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

And just as “Babylon the Great” will deceive the world, so Jewish leaders today present a whitewashed façade to Christians and the world – an illusion of goodness that has never been more convincing or scrupulously maintained. The Jewish lobby deceived Christians into unquestioning support of Israel’s ambitions and atrocities in the Mideast; this is awesome evidence of the manipulative influence Jewry will enjoy as we draw even closer to the end. When Christ warned that the delusions of the end time would be so irresistible that “even the very elect” could be deceived, He was speaking of our day!

In our day we witness the continuing and monstrous complications of that great divorce of Christ from his chosen bride millennia ago. We are not simply approaching the foothills of anti-Christ. We are in them. Through intrigue and deception, the control and commercialism of “ Babylon the Great” has come surround us. Yet we have not perceived it. We have, in fact, assisted it.

Babylon is now.

How should Christians respond to the fact that Israel and Babylon are one? Jesus tells us the answer. "Come out of her, my people, that you may not participate in her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues, for her sins have piled up as high as heaven…" (Rev. 18:4-5)

Broken Unions, Broken Nation, and the Lie that Keeps us Broke

opednews.com

By Allan Goldstein


Tell the last teacher to turn off the classroom lights on her way out of town. Put up the for sale signs on our remaining municipal assets. America is going out of business.

A Big Lie is breaking our country. You hear it all the time: America is overtaxed.

No, it isn't. As a percentage of GDP, federal taxes have averaged 18.4% since World War II. They're down now, some say as low as 16%. And, shockingly, the government is out of money.

When the times get tough, the tough get scapegoating. But times have been tough for so long that they're running out of victims to blame.

When the middle class began its long, slow plunge into oblivion back in the 70s, it was easy; blame it on the welfare queens. There actually were a few of those and they cost us some money. Not as much as Citibank or AIG--every welfare queen in America could have ten kids and send them all to Harvard and still not approach those numbers--but some.

Later it was illegal immigrants, or sleazy lawyers, or featherbedding bureaucrats, or pork, or earmarks or whatever came to hand when trying to avoid the awful truth. You're out of money because we have it all.

But now the easy targets are all hit, the small game is wiped out--shot, stuffed and mounted on the Trickle Down Country Club Wall of Shame. Who's left to take the heat?

The good guys, that's who. Sorry cops, sorry firefighters, not-quite-so sorry teachers, it's your turn now. You are the new scapegoats, your jobs, your pay, your healthcare, your pensions, and most of all, your unions.

But they can kill all the unions they want. We'll still have to pay people for the essential services that hold our nation together. If we want to hold our nation together, because that's what's at stake.

When you can't afford to police your streets, keep your parks clean, libraries open, children taught, potholes fixed, garbage collected and bridges standing, you have a mortal problem. And it isn't "too much spending." It's not enough revenue.

But we're not overtaxed; we're fraudulently taxed. The real wealth isn't taxed at all.

There is plenty of wealth in the nation. Wall Street is making more money than before it wrecked the economy, corporations are sitting on two trillion dollars of idle money, markets and speculators are through the roof with cash.

This wasn't supposed to happen. If we simply kept cutting taxes a magical rain of wealth was supposed to descend upon us from on high, so we kept cutting taxes.

We're still waiting for the wealth. And the government, which runs on taxes, is bankrupt.

What is at stake now isn't a matter of dollars and cents, it's not another policy debate between conservatives and liberals. It goes far deeper than that. Right down to the meaning of civilization.

This isn't about taxes. It's not about spending. It's about what we want as a society.

Our choice is this. Find the money or lose our civilization. If we want safety, hire cops; if we want education, hire teachers; if we want roads, pay construction workers; if we want clean air, food, drugs and water, pay inspectors. If we want chaos, don't.

When you don't have enough cops and teachers and libraries and garbage collectors and maintenance workers where you live, you live in a dirty, dangerous, uneducated, crumbling place. And, selfish as they are, I don't think even the super rich want that.


Find the money. See where the heaving oceans of untaxed wealth are hiding in plain sight, drowning everyone in their excess, demanding more and more and more--and tax them.

But I'm not here to debate the fine points of tax policy. I'm here to speak truth to power.

This is my warning to the powerful. You are starving our society to death. You've put a tourniquet around our civic neck and squeezed the life out of our revenue stream. If you keep it up, everything we cherish, everything we count on as Americans will die.

Call it restructuring, call it tax reform, call it budget normalization, call it whatever the hell you want, I don't care. But find the money.

Because if we don't: count on it. The next scapegoat is you.

The Power Of Insanity

Preface: What you are about to read is not by any means a medical or professional diagnosis of insanity. It is only based on my personal experiences and observations of people that have come into my life at various points in my journey.

Insanity is the new normal.

Insanity allows it's practitioners the power to control those around them to the utmost degree. Have you ever tried to argue with an insane person? Have you ever tried to reason with an insane person?
The insane have no clue about their condition, they operate in world of their own creation. They see and hear on a different plane of existence than those of us who are seeking truth.

I'm not sure if insanity is a chosen condition, an organic condition, or a spiritual condition. What I do know is this: Anyone who denies the truth before their eyes is insane!

I know people who have chosen insanity as way to cope with things they are to fearful to face. They have denied the possibility that by seeking a power higher than themselves, they can overcome their fears. Fear causes insanity by the same mechanism that darkness quenches light! They are wandering in the darkness of their fear, they touch the walls of their prison and do not recognise the doors and windows that they are touching, they refuse to acknowledge the familiar and by doing so they have eliminated any chance of escape from their darkness.

Those with an organic or physical deficiency in their brains are probably the easiest to help because they are not in denial like the other two categories are. They are able to find the doors and windows to reality if they are given guidance.

A spiritually deficient insanity shares aspects of both chosen and organic insanity.
Those with no belief in a Higher Power are no doubt as insane as the previous two. Truth is so blatantly obvious if a person even feebly attempts to find it, that there is no doubt that this type of insanity has chosen aspects to it. There is the possibility though, that the spiritual deficit is because that individual has never been exposed to to Truth or Spirit! There are those who have been isolated either by choice or circumstance! These individual may or may not be shown the doors and windows of Truth. If they have the desire to be enlightened and are exposed to Truth by caring individuals, there is a 100% rate of cure for these!

No matter the base cause of insanity, the result for those inflicted is power and control over others. They can not be persuaded by any means and they push their perspective and agenda on the weak, lazy and timid members of society with all boldness and tenacity. The insane can, with ultimate confidence and authority, control the lives of those around them.

I know and have known the insane. When I became aware of their condition, I was able to realize that I could not win a battle with them. I would not be able to persuade them of the error of their thought process.  Because of my circumstance at particular times, I was unable to just walk away from them. I had to placate their insane assumptions and actions in order to ensure my own survival!
I am not saying that I accepted their insanity, but only that I played along in order to be able to continue on with whatever goal I was pursuing.

Today, ALL government, ALL mainstream media, and ALL zio-pharisaic Jews are using insanity to control the rest of humanity. They have been granted this power by the force of darkness and the father of lies that has existed from the beginning of time!

We cannot win this battle with those who have chosen the power of insanity. However, Truth does immunize us from it!

What we can do, is to win the war! We can win it by seeking first the Power of Truth and Love in our own lives. By seeking a perfect and spiritual relationship with the Creator God! With Love we offer our Brothers Truth and Enlightenment that they may be cured of their insanity.

And yes, we are our Brothers keeper!
It is our responsibility as humans to extend a helping hand to those who have fallen.
We cannot force them to accept that hand though. The Truth must be accepted through free will.

Truth will NOT be forced! Truth will not ride in the back seat of life!

Truth cures insanity! Spread it around!

In Peace and Love,

Avops

We're All Sheeple Now!

A most excellent post from our friend the Olive Farmer...............

Sunday, March 6, 2011



We're all Sheeple now.

It's just that there are new shepherds.
Is that, then, our perpetual destiny?
To need to be led?
Have we been brought to fear one another so much that we bend our knees to monsters rather than trust one another?
To seek out and pray for a kindly master whilst forever accepting an evil one, but better that than trust each other.
And never pause to ask: Who taught us to be this way?
And when we see light ahead, rush towards it without asking who is holding the torch?
When our history teaches us that the light bringer, the saviour, is always just another parasite, feeding on our misery.
With the odd, always murdered, exception.
This taught yearning for leadership divides us rather than uniting us. It splits us into camps.
So the new world we build should do without leadership, and replace it with trust.
And love.
In the coming months, beware anyone that offers the light of leadership.
This is not how things will be. It is the old way.

Auspicious dawn

What we have always known will heal us


1st March 2011

John Kaminski


Lemon Bay, Florida, March 1, 2011, 5:45 a.m. Auspicious dawn. Huge creamy diamond Venus aims at a soft landing on the awe-inspiring Earthshine of the nearby crescent moon, comfortably reclined in a welcoming mode. (Of course this is a big blast of love wafting toward us from our mother in the sky.) As the clear blue dawn with flecks of gold will arrive in a few minutes, Northern birds chatter amiably, making travel plans. Around the world, a new chant bursts the bonds of the aimless silence that never stirred until justice finally reached the hearts of men, and insisted the honesty within them be extended into the outer world choking on smoke and soot and the injustice of institutions designed to protect them that really hurt them. Bastiát was right. Down through history, the biggest hazards to human life have been the very systems humans have devised to protect themselves. And we could never fix them until we could fix ourselves.

Now, the sullen soiled world structure we have created for ourselves — or have had created for us — is crumbling. The foundation stones of our social system are revealed by the parasitic infection of suppressed fear which has undermined every effort we have ever made at anything. The ancient myths that were supposed to have guided us became our prison wardens, shackled our thoughts, smelted them into robotic repetitions of rancid rituals that said we should have no fear if we just hung onto this handy little crucifixional device that would save us in any situation. All that was was something we already had; they just gave it a name and an image, but we already possessed it long before they repackaged it and sold it to us in exchange for our souls, which they acquired at a very cheap price.

As we learn that the spread of Roman Christianity that evolved into the Dark Ages was first inspired by the first recipients of this blessed miasma of ancient anagrams. These were the slaves, criminals and other maladjusted barbarians who were given an instant promotion to full Roman citizenship by a simple wave of the hand in a crosslike pattern, without any of the ancient requirements and tasks essential to achievement of emotionally invested citizenship in the real world. This is ultimately how Rome was destroyed. The passivity engendered by this otherworldly takeover of people's minds sabotaged the traditional fabric of every society it engulfed. And the hypocrisy that seeped from something we truly believed in yet was based on stolen myths and concealed identities created a secret and evil level to all human machinations that has compromised our efforts down through time, and created a culture that worships death, power and force instead of the life affirming practicality and forthrightness that still rules the less developed societies, the indigenous people whom we have just about completely extincted with our technological poisons.

As we begin the transition to a society in which people begin to see their connection to each other in a much more actualized way — hence revealing the ultimate absurdity of war and murder — most of the world remains trapped in the artificial media mindlock, where governments repeat their orders from the bankers through shillistic journalists with fat wallets in a manner in which the details of what they have actually done are very different — if not diametrically opposed — to the version they have crafted and distributed for public consumption.

It is in this gap we all can clearly observe the connection between a contemporary U.S. government utterly controlled by a nearly invisible foreign power herding a drugged and demented populace toward its own extinction and a two thousand year old religion whose very foundations stand now revealed as stolen traditions disguised and subverted to a purpose very different from its purported aim, which is your own salvation.

As Venus and the moon dance across the sky, once again the universe is showing us how it's done, had we but eyes to see it.

The caveat, of course, is that you must take somebody with you when you go off on your journey, or bring somebody home when you come back. Otherwise it doesn't really count.

As the New World Order unleashes its deadly but profitable schemes on the unsuspecting herd, all over the world, life is busting out all over. It's entirely up to us to determine who wins. Will it be perpetual servitude or spontaneous jubilation? Yes, you get to pick.

Have absolute confidence in your decision. You have always had all the information you need. It's inside you, but they tried to convince you they were keeping it for you, and you had to go visit it there. When you know that, all your decisions will be right and healthy. And if you weren't a friend of mine, I wouldn't be telling you that, would I?
