THE CUTTING EDGE
On Saturday, July 31, Democrat conventioneers were leaving Boston feeling pretty good about themselves, their party, and most of all, the newly nominated Presidential Candidate, John Kerry. But on Sunday, August 1, the "Power of Incumbency" raised its head with great force and authority as Homeland Security Director, Tom Ridge, dropped a political bombshell in the form of a grandiose terror alert: He announced he was raising the alert level in New York City and selected environs to "Orange" based upon unspecified "intelligence".
Let us review this story.
NEWS BRIEF: "Al Qaeda plot targets us", New York Daily News, Monday, August 2, 2004
"Top authorities ratcheted up security in New York and Washington yesterday amid frightening new evidence of Al Qaeda plots to blow up the New York Stock Exchange and other key financial centers. 'We do have new and unusually specific information about where Al Qaeda would like to attack', Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge revealed. The stock exchange and Manhattan's Citicorp Center appear to be in the terrorists' cross hairs - along with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank buildings in Washington and Prudential Plaza in Newark, Ridge said ... The new intelligence, which grew out of the recent arrests of two terror thugs in Pakistan, includes many unsettling details."
Let us stop right here to digest what Tom Ridge has just alleged. He said three things:
1) This "new" intelligence came from the arrest of two Al-Qaeda thugs in Pakistan
2) He had "unusually specific information about where Al Qaeda would like to attack"
3) American authorities had " frightening new evidence of Al Qaeda plots"
However, on the very next day, DEBKAfile Intelligence broke a major story saying that the "evidence" upon which Ridge had made his allegation was neither new nor specific. In fact, this evidence was very old, nearly three years old. In the fast-moving world of global intelligence, information more than months old is considered ancient and nearly worthless; three-year-old information is good only for starting bonfires. Listen:
NEWS BRIEF: "Two Men Held in Pakistan Are Back Numbers", DEBKAfile, August 2, 2004, http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=885
"DEBKAfiles counter-terror experts are skeptical about the sourcing of the intelligence which prompted the terror alert - declared Sunday at five financial bastions in New York, Washington and New Jersey - to Pakistans two newest al Qaeda captives ... But ascribing the 'unusually specific information' to these two detainees in Pakistani custody poses questions ... The two men are not of the usual al-Qaeda caliber for preparing a complex, spectacular attack in the United States - or even acting as the top levels repositories for the necessary foreknowledge. Only very limited information must therefore have been elicited from the two men detained in Pakistan and their computers..."
Number 1 Allegation Refuted: This information refutes Ridge's allegation we have listed as Number 1, above. These two 'thugs' captured in Pakistan were most unlikely candidates to have possessed such sensitive information. Their knowledge about planned terror attacks was extremely limited. Was Tom Ridge lying or just badly misinformed?
Number 2 Allegation Refuted: Since these two men were such low-level operatives who could not possibly have known this type of intelligence, they also could not possibly have known the exact location of the planned strike. Of course, this second understanding is a simple and logical outgrowth of the realization that these men were nothing more than low-level Al Qaeda.
But, then, DEBKAfile completely destroys the notion that American Intelligence could place any confidence in material they had discovered in captured Al Qaeda computers.
"The Al Qaeda computers fallen into US intelligence hands until now have thrown out an abundance of data on terror plots and networks, most of which proved false or planted to mislead." [Ibid.]
Once again, we have to question either the competency of truthfulness of Tom Ridge when he bases his national alert status on such tenuous and/or outright bogus intelligence information. Are we headed for yet another "intelligence failure"? Believe me, if professional intelligence agents get burned by the enemy, they will learn from that experience and will not place any more credence on that type of information.
Finally, DEBKAfile trashed the concept that Al Qaeda was really planning a mega-strike against any targets, including American! Listen very carefully.
"Even if some of the information obtained from the two detainees holds up, an operation on the colossal scale of 9/11 was not contemplated, only strikes using local teams. Al Qaeda would not activate its entire network for suicide truck bomb attacks on buildings ... Counting possible sleepers, the fundamentalist organization does not maintain in North America even one tenth of its present strength in Iraq..."
Therefore, Al Qaeda does not even have enough manpower to carry out mega-strikes against American targets and may not even have the capability of staging suicide truck bomb attacks on buildings!
This revelation is positively huge! Once again, we see that our government leaders are probably lying to us as they continue to issue terror alerts based upon no evidence or bogus evidence or deliberately manufactured "evidence". In this vein, let us go back to our original New York Daily News article.
"The feds have no information that an attack is imminent ..." [Ibid.]
As we have patiently pointed out since the 9/11 attacks, whenever you see the words that a terror alert is based upon "no specific information", that terror alert has turned out to be false.
Now, let us turn to Ridge's Allegation Number 3, i.e., That he had " frightening new evidence of Al Qaeda plots". Emphasis is on "new".
Number 3 Allegation Refuted: NEWS BRIEF: "Reports That Led to Terror Alert Were Years Old, Officials Say", The New York Times, August 3, 2004
"WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 -Much of the information that led the authorities to raise the terror alert at several large financial institutions in the New York City and Washington areas was three or four years old, intelligence and law enforcement officials said on Monday. They reported that they had not yet found concrete evidence that a terrorist plot or preparatory surveillance operations were still under way ... Frances Fragos Townsend, the White House homeland security adviser, said on Monday in an interview on PBS that surveillance reports, apparently collected by Qaeda operatives had been "gathered in 2000 and 2001" ... A sizable part of the information seized in Pakistan described reconnaissance carried out before the Sept. 11 attacks ... The comments of government officials on Monday seemed softer in tone than the warning issued the day before ... 'What we've uncovered is a collection operation as opposed to the launching of an attack', a senior American official said."
This last sentence really should hit home: "What we've uncovered is a collection operation as opposed to the launching of an attack". (Senior American official )
Yet, Tom Ridge scared an entire nation to death by his strident warning and by his elevation of the terror alert to orange.
In fact, Homeland Security Chief Ridge was forced to quickly admit that the intelligence information upon which he based in terror alert was three years old.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ridge defends 'three-year-old' US terror alert", The New Zealand Herald, August 4, 2004
"NEW YORK - The warning that US financial centres may be attacked by al Qaeda was based largely on three-year-old information, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said on Tuesday, but some intelligence dated from January and he insisted the threat was still real. Ridge's appearance in New York at the Citigroup building named on Sunday as a potential al Qaeda target came as US terrorism intelligence has come under fire again, this time for forcing police in New York, Washington and New Jersey to massively increase security based on old information."
Many other news outlets jumped on this reality, that Ridge's terror alert was based on very old and very worthless, intelligence information.
On the very next day, White House officials had "discovered" new intelligence!
NEWS BRIEF: "Officials now say new data behind alert", Denver Post, August 4, 2004
"Washington - Senior government officials said Tuesday that there was new intelligence of a possible terrorist attack that prompted them to elevate the terror alert Sunday. The officials said the separate stream of intelligence, which they had not previously disclosed, reached the White House late last week and was part of a flow that the officials said prompted them to act urgently in the past few days."
How are we to believe this new line? If the White House and Homeland Security were willing to base a huge terror alert on intelligence information this old, how are we to believe them when they react to criticism by saying, "Oh, yes, that information was really old, but believe us now when we tell you that we received new information in January". If that were true, Ridge would have stated that fact on Sunday, August 1, rather than on Monday, August 2, after the flap had exploded into the general news stream.
Remember, we are dealing with an Administration who deliberately created a bogus "intelligence service" called Office of Special Plans in mid-2002, after the regular CIA had refused to sign off on the really scary intelligence information the Bush White House needed to justify the Iraqi invasion (NEWS1890 and NEWS1890b for full details).
If this Administration was willing to go the effort to create a false intelligence service in mid-2002, in order to foist huge and frightening lies upon us about Saddam's WMD capability, you have to realize this same Administration cannot be trusted now.
DEMOCRATS CRY "FOUL"
NEWS BRIEF: ""Ridge defends 'three-year-old' US terror alert", The New Zealand Herald, August 4, 2004
"BURSTING THE BOUNCE? But former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean accused Bush of releasing the information now to dampen the rise in opinion polls, or 'bounce', Kerry might have expected after his nominating convention in Boston last week. 'Isn't it unusual they might choose two days after the Democratic National Convention when John Kerry was in the middle of his bounce', Dean, who ran against Kerry for the presidential nomination, said in an interview on MSNBC's 'Hardball'. The alert, he said, could have been issued weeks ago."
You are right, Mr. Dean. This ability to throw a monkey wrench into the campaign of a presidential contender is always a feared commodity, and is known as the "Power of the Incumbency". The Executive Branch has set in place men serving at the pleasure of the President who are specifically charged with the responsibility of ensuring the safety of all Americans, both here and abroad. If these men are willing to publish false reports because their boss wants them to, the presidential contender is in a great deal of difficulty because American citizens rally around their President in times of crisis and they feel secure in the common illusion that their President is an honorable man who only has their best interests at heart.
Therefore, the Power of the Incumbency is a fearsome weapon, especially amongst an electorate who has long ago lost the ability to think critically and to question authority! We shall likely see much more of this type of campaign tactic as we proceed through the Republican National Convention. After all, while Candidate John Kerry was positioning himself as a Vietnam War Hero, President Bush was positioning himself as a successful "War On Terror" president. Under his wise leadership, America has suffered no successful terrorist attack since 9/11. We have had many terror warnings, but our vigilant President has successfully deterred all of them!
You see, many undiscerning American citizens will look upon every terror alert which did not occur as another instance in which the enemy tried to attack, but were turned back by a strong, alert Bush government. TV shows depicting weekly Homeland Security and FBI fights against terror alerts foster this type of naive belief.
IS A TERRORIST ATTACK OF GREAT MAGNITUDE POSSIBLE?
Yes, of course, such an attack is possible, simply because the Illuminati plans just such an attack in order to panic the people into accepting a dictatorship. In fact, in the official New World Order Plan, New York is specifically singled out for a nuclear attack, as this Illuminati Card demonstrates. As you will further recall, this card is the second one depicting New York City under attack; that first card showed the World Trade Center being hit in exactly the place the first plane hit the North Tower (Read NEWS1753]. I have always felt that, since the Illuminati Card Game depicted two major New York City attack cards, the City was targeted for two major terrorist attacks -- carried out by the Illuminati, of course, so that they may move this country and the world into the dictatorship of the New World Order.
Let us now review the most concise, succinct, and well-written part of the plan depicting the global disasters which the Illuminati is planning to wreak upon the world so they can begin their World War III, the "Final Birth Pangs" war to produce Antichrist.
"... can you imagine what will happen if Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake, New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bomb, World War III breaks out in the Middle East, the banks and the stock markets collapse, Extraterrestrials land on the White House lawn, food disappears from the markets, some people disappear, the Messiah presents himself to the world, and all in a very short period of time?" ["Behold A Pale Horse", by William Cooper, p. 167, 177]
As you can see, New York City is planned to be hit with a "terrorist-planted atomic bomb" (NEWS1938), followed by the outbreak of World War III. Remember this sequence, for it is very important. Now, carefully notice the rest of the "Combined Disasters" the Illuminati has planned for the rest of the world:
1. Very short but very deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations
2. Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake
3. New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bomb
4. World War III breaks out in the Middle East*
5. Banks and the stock markets collapse
6. Extraterrestrials land on the White House lawn
7. Food disappears from the markets - Famine
8. Some people disappear -- (Rapture?)
9. The Messiah presents himself to the world
* This World War III will break out in the Middle East, starting between Israel and her Arab neighbors (NEWS1056), but then will spread to the entire region. Shortly thereafter, North Korea will precipitate a nuclear crisis which will threaten the existence of mankind, followed by China invading Taiwan.
Unparalleled disaster is what the Illuminati has planned. Of course, we know that #9 will occur at the very end of this period. However, please carefully consider that these terrible events are to happen together, as a unit; further, former Satanists have told me that this entire set of disasters will occur within a 13-week time frame (91 days). Therefore, no single event is going to occur if all other events are not ready to go -- at least ready to go within 91 days.
Are all these elements ready to go? As I look at these planned elements, I am struck by the reality that Israel has not yet separated her population from the Palestinians in order for the war to begin. What do I mean? As we have stated in NEWS1422, NEWS1620, and NEWS1625, Israel is planning to annihilate the Palestinian people in fulfillment of Obadiah 15-18 and the parallel passage in Isaiah 34. Before she can carry out this genocidal war, she must first separate her population from the descendants of the "House of Esau" -- the Palestinians.
Israel began to build a separation security fence in November, 2000, and is continuing apace; however, she is only 25% finished, with a projected finish time of the end of 2005. Part of this annihilation plan is to unilaterally disengage from the Gaza Strip and selected areas of the West Bank, pulling those settlers living amidst the sea of Palestinians back behind the Security Fence, which is planned to follow the Green Line pretty closely.
In order to execute the unilateral disengagement, Israel needs a very stable government -- a "Unity Government". Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sharon and Labor leader Peres, this secular unity government is taking shape. Once this government is in place, the pace of withdrawal and of completing the security fence will then accelerate.
However, even a rapid acceleration would not get Israel's population separated by September 2 or 11 for that matter. Therefore, Israel is not yet ready to commence her planned war. For this reason, I believe the mega-terror attack on New York City using a nuclear device will not occur in this time frame. Smaller car and truck bombs may be detonated, to give the Republican Convention and extra dimension and fear, but the mega-attack will probably not occur.
One other consideration is in order. There are still too many "Non-Integrating" countries right now to allow the "Final Birth Pangs War" to begin.
In NEWS1833 and NEWS1906, we introduced the Pentagon plan whereby those nations throughout the world whose economy and government are not now able to integrate into the global cashless economy of the coming Antichrist will be forced to rapidly change, or die. These nations are called the "Non-Functioning Gap" ("Non-Integrating") countries; those countries who are now capable of functioning in the cashless system are called "Functioning Core".
In order to force a rapid change in the government and economy of these "Non-Integrating" countries, key countries like America, Great Britian, European Union, and Australia have taken it upon themselves to create the urgency required to invade one nation within the "Non-Functioning Gap" region, overthrowing the government and instituting the changes needed. This plan is one of the reasons we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, why Indonesia invaded the Aceh Province, and why Australia invaded the tiny Solomon Islands. Once one country in the region is invaded and overthrown, the other "Non-Integrating" countries are supposed to get the message and change rapidly on their own.
In both these articles, above, we have shown a map of the region which depicts these "Non-Integrating" countries. Afghanistan, Iraq and Haiti have been overthrown according to this principle, but there are so many more yet to change. Africa and Central and South America are chock full of "Non-Integrating" countries. Even though our Special Forces are hard at work in these regions, working under the protection of our Embassies, to destablize and overthrow these countries, progess is slow and difficult.
We believe there are too many "Non-Integrating" countries right now to allow the Third World War to begin. Certainly, a mega-terror attack on New York City would begin the process to this war, and is planned to occur at roughly the same time as Israel goes to war with her Arab neighbors.
For the next month, we Americans are going to be treated to an incredible string of terror alerts and stories designed to raise our consciousness about the possibility of devastating terror attacks to new heights. These Tom Ridge terror alerts -- based upon spurious "intelligence" -- are designed with the following factors in mind:
1. To take the traditional "bounce" in popularity away from the Democrat presidential nominee, John Kerry
2. To establish President Bush as a successful "War On Terror" President in time for the convention and from which to launch a Fall campaign
3. To provide the kind of support the 9/11 Panel needs to get their 41 recommendations enacted into law. Remember, it has only been about one week since those recommendations were publicized. President Bush plans to enact 25 of them by Executive Order, while a Congressional subcommittee is now meeting through the traditional Summer recess to lay the groundwork for Congress to enact the rest. Therefore, would it not be easier for President Bush and Congress to enact these recommendations if the country were gripped by a powerful terrorist threat to our financial and political capitals and the repository of so many of our national symbols? Under the threat of extreme terror, even the most draconian of measures can be passed.
Once the President "prevents" this terrible terrorist threat from occurring, he will be in a great position to launch his campaign for reelection! His credentials as successful "War On Terror" President will far outshine Kerry's credentials as "Vietnam War Hero".
One other matter needs to be considered: this terrible period through which we are passing, and these repeated terror alerts, are fulfilling the Bible prophecy of Rumors of Wars (Matthew 24:6-8).
"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled ... For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place ... this is the intolerable anguish." [Matthew 24:6-7; Parallel KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Take notice of Jesus' admonition: "see that you are not frightened or troubled". The Bible has much to say about not being frightened. Please listen as we compare KJV and the Amplified Bible Commentary, contained in the Thompson Chain Reference Computer Library.

[But do not yield to them.] Let them return to younot you to [the people] ... And I will deliver you out of the hands of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the palms of the terrible and ruthless tyrants." Jeremiah 15:19, 21 (Amp)
"Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down, relax My hold on you! Assuredly not! So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6 (Amp)
With precious promises as these, we shall not fear during this unprecedented period of false terror alerts designed to panic the people. Praying and fasting, on our knees before Jesus, let us vow to remain a strong witness to the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We are witnessing the fulfillment of tremendous End of the Age prophecy right before our eyes, in our Daily News.
