After nearly two years of increasingly bad news regarding the Iraqi war, President Bush finally scored two major victories in the public propaganda arena.
First, he was reelected as President in the November, 2004, elections. Immediately after the election, President Bush and his entourage began trumpeting that the election victory proved his policies to be correct.
Secondly, the Iraqi elections of January 30, 2005, proved to be a public relations coup. TV cameras continually showed what seemed to be millions of voters trooping through to polling places, in the face of incredible insurgency opposition. The insurgency did strike hard, killing scores of people; but, at the end of the day, the "democratic process" was said to have triumphed. The "human spirit" which is said to power the democratic process was held up high in Iraq, seemingly validating President Bush's invasion, washing away memories of Weapons of Mass Destruction never found and links between Saddam and Osama bin Laden never proven.
However, before we jump on this bandwagon, we need to look at the process a whole lot closer. We do remember the famous words of the infamous Illuminati dictator, Josef Stalin, who never lost an election. Stalin told all people of all ages how an election is held:
He who casts his vote counts for nothing; but he who counts the vote counts for everything.
In other words, the Illuminati man will win the election. Nobody wins elections better than Western politicians -- and Americans are the best of the best in ensuring their man wins.
With Stalin's words ringing in our ears, let us now examine the Iraqi elections of January 30, 2005. You will discover that the devil truly is in the details!
IRAQI ELECTIONS - JANUARY 30, 2005
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq Elections: Democracy or Hypocrisy", by Dr. Minhaj Qidwai, The Palestine Chronicle, 3 February 2005
"... contrary to what breathless media reporters in Iraq have been portraying to the world, current Iraqi elections are sheer hypocrisy that may lead to the country’s disintegration. But the Iraqis will realize later the game plan behind these elections. Who are these elections really for? The Iraqi people or the Bush Administration's PR machine? What are the real intentions behind these elections? The unification or the disintegration Iraq?"
Dr. Qidwai then lists the many reasons which are causing him to doubt that these elections will prove to be either free or liberating.
* "Iraqis are voting not for a party or an individual but for a list -- There are a very few individuals and parties standing as such but the majority are part of lists ... The lists contain, between them, over 7000 candidates, many of whom are not even named for security reasons."
Americans are used to voting for individuals for office, and assumed this election was in that vein. We did not realize that voters had to vote "straight party tickets", which would elect appointed office holders. And, who appointed these faceless candidates who would take office once their party won? The Americans, of course!
* "Iraqi people have no opportunity to elect their president or prime minister ... The elections will create a 275 member National Assembly which will select a 3 member presidency council, which in turn will select a prime minister. It's assumed, but nowhere stated in the 'transitional law' that these selections would come from among the 275 elected members.
"So the head of the government will be selected, not elected."
Another surprise! Just weeks ago, we wondered what would happen to the Interim Prime Minister Allawi, as he was slated to get only about 8% of the vote. Now, we know that he can conceivably still be PM, if the 275-member National Assembly selects a 3-member presidency council, which will then select Mr. Allawi!
If you are thinking this is a set-up -- an American concoction -- you would be entirely correct. Under the guise of holding an election which most Americans think is like our elections, President Bush has "stacked the card deck" in favor of getting into office a pro-American slate, while most people in the world believe these guys were elected!
These officers are really selected, not elected! These 275 "elected" candidates were undoubtedly selected for their loyalty to the American-led Coalition. Now we know the truth: pro-American candidates will be elevated to office, while the "masses" of common people sleep on under the effect of their "mickey".
* "None of the elected members of the National Assembly will represent a locality. Former US viceroy Paul Bremer decided the entire country should be a single constituency so the electoral system creates a national proportional representation. Anyone who gets a 275th of the vote will get a seat, regardless of how many others are elected from their city or province. The system creates a likelihood of over-representation at the national level for groups which turn out in high numbers."
This system really punishes those groups -- like the Sunnis -- who decided not to vote. They could find themselves under the "tyranny of the majority", and may actually be persecuted by majority Shi'ites and the Kurds. Since every group and nation in the Middle East hates the Kurds, if the Kurds gain a representation in the new Iraqi government which is greater than their population, a civil war may soon break out.
* "Large areas of the country are not expected to be able to vote, perhaps as many as 50% of the eligible voters!"
We were told that large parts of the country could not vote after all, because the area could not be properly "secured". Not knowing right now which parts of the population could not vote, we cannot ascertain the effect on the election. Most probably, the areas which could not vote are the extremely anti-American sections, which would have produced vote totals highly set against the American-backed candidates.
* "The rules for polling and who can or can't be a candidate were set, essentially, by the US. Rules were set by the Independent Iraqi Electoral Commission. The group, bar one or perhaps two members, was appointed by Paul Bremer, before handing over 'power' in June. The Commission has absolute power to bar any candidate or organization. It has banned a number of candidates but is so secretive that nobody knows who has been forbidden or for what reason. There's been no due process, no establishing a case against a candidate before barring. Candidates and organizations taking part have to swear allegiance to Bremer's law."
Let us repeat the critically pertinent sentence: "Candidates and organizations taking part have to swear allegiance to Bremer's law."
Once again, we realize that this secret selection process can be used against any legitimate candidate who opposes the American agenda. This process can work mightily to produce a continuity of pro-American rule, and might work in producing an "elected" government which will not ask the Americans to leave after the results of the election are known. Now, you see how President Bush and his officials could boldly state that they would leave if the new "elected" government asks them to leave.
Once this carefully selected group of pro-American Iraqi leaders takes office
under the mantle of legitimacy conferred by "elections", President
Bush can tout the worthiness of his invasion as proven by the fact that the
new government did not ask them to leave. As James Carroll stated perfectly
well in his Boston Globe editorial of February 2, 2005, this new government
will only prove its legitimacy "if the elections empower an Iraqi government
that moves quickly to repudiate Washington. The only meaning 'freedom' can have
in Iraq right now is freedom from the U.S. occupation." [Quoted in our
5, 2005, Paragraph II]
* "Expatriate voters are expected to decide the result. A huge number of people living outside Iraq will be allowed to vote. The UN opposed the expat vote as highly vulnerable to fraud but the election planners chose not to listen."
The United Nations opposed this expatriate vote simply because it can be so easily manipulated. But, if Washington wants to pad its numbers of votes for its candidate slates, what better way than to manipulate the numbers being reported from polls outside Iraq.
* "Certain parties and individuals have also been funded by the US."
Once again, we see the quiet, nearly invisible hand of the American authority in this election. While US-funded candidates can afford to publicly campaign, getting their message out to the electorate, opposition candidates were under a double handicap: 1) They lacked the funds of the American-sponsored candidates; 2) They were under the threat of death by the insurgency.
* "Whoever wins, the occupation will go on."
We have already covered the mechanics as to how this carefully selected 275 person National Assembly could then possibly name 3 individuals who would then select the Prime Minister of their choice. This organization of the elections seems tailor made to ensure that a pro-American government will emerge from the election, under the cover of legitimacy.
* "The new government is already bound, under 'Bremer's Law'."
Does this mean that a new government, even if it is lead by a hostile, Shi'ite leadership, cannot publicly ask for American forces to leave? We shall have to wait to see how this possible scenario plays out, but the skids do seem to be greased for a publicly hostile religious party to gain power in the new government, but who is forbidden by this nearly hidden rule from demanding the Americans leave. After a period of time has elapsed without the new government asking the Americans to leave, the world will conclude that our occupation and our policies are accepted by the Iraqis after all.
* "Iraq has no free press."
"The elections in Iraq, are by no means an end of the game. The Americans will not be seen marching out of the country, as the Iraqis believe. The violence will continue post elections, as the security will ease. The country might get divided into various factions: Sunnis, Shias and Kurds."
"Religion will definitely play an important role. The Iranian form of Shiite religion will be more dominant, and the Kurds will start preparations for demands of a separate homeland. The exit of the American-British occupiers appears far remote." (Ibid.)
A naked power play has seemingly been carried out under the cover of "free, democratic" elections. Truly, the Illuminati version of the Golden Rule is absolutely true: "He who has the gold, makes the rules". Since the Americans made the rules, the American supported candidates will win, and few people will ever know the truth.
Now you know the type of "freedom and liberty" President Bush means
which he promises to spread far beyond Iraq, to the rest of the Non-Integrating
states of the world. While his words sound wonderful and inspiring, the President
has not told anyone that he has completely redefined those words.
Truly did Jesus speak to this kind of unparalleled spiritual deception at the End of the Age.
"For there shall arise false Christs ... insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." [Matt 24:24]
Since the word, "Christ" in this verse is the political office of
Messiah, Jesus is warning all mankind to expect End of the Age prophecy from
political leaders which is completely without precedent. We are at this point
now in world history; unfortunately, both Christian and secular people alike
are completely deceived.
Truly, this is the End of the Age. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
