The Christian should never think or speak lightly of unbelief. For a child of God to mistrust His love, His truth, His faithfulness, must be greatly displeasing to Him. How can we ever grieve Him by doubting His upholding grace? Christian! it is contrary to every promise of God's precious Word that thou shouldst ever be forgotten or left to perish. If it could be so, how could He be true who has said, "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I never forget thee." What were the value of that promise
--"The mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee." Where were the truth of Christ's words
--"I give unto My sheep eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither
shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me, is
greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand."
Where were the doctrines of grace? They would be all disproved if one child
of God should perish. Where were the veracity of God, His honour, His power,
His grace, His covenant, His oath, if any of those for whom Christ has died,
and who have put their trust in Him, should nevertheless be cast away? Banish
those unbelieving fears which so dishonour God. Arise, shake thyself from
the dust, and put on thy beautiful garments. Remember it is sinful to doubt
His Word wherein He has promised thee that thou shalt never perish. Let the
eternal life within thee express itself in confident rejoicing. "The
gospel bears my spirit up: A faithful and unchanging God Lays the foundation
for my hope, In oaths, and promises, and blood." (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning
and Evening Devotions")

Untold millions of American Christians believe President Bush to be a Born
Again Christian -- even though his fruits are uniformly evil.
At long last, a Christian author has systematically researched to discover that Bush's actions are not consistent with his profession of faith. Jesus told us the standard by which we are to judge another: "By their fruits shall ye know them." (Matt 7:20)
Klar also demonstrates that Bush is really a ravenous "wolf in sheep's clothing" (Matt 7:15-16) and that he has seriously ravaged the genuine Church of Jesus Christ. End of the Age implications are staggering!

Understanding The Global Plan
* "Illuminati Card Game: Just A Game, Or A Blueprint For World Domination?" -- DVD -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1133
In nine pertinent playing cards of the "Illuminati New World Order" Game, how did the inventor know -- in 1995 -- the three events comprising the 9/11 attacks? How did he know also the correct plan in the near future? Why do his cards predict the appearance of Antichrist and the Rapture as the last two events of the Illuminati Plan?
Events are occurring now, weakening the Old World Order so the New can be established. You will be surprised to learn how many of the recent events of our society are designed to enhance the new global dictatorship of which Antichrist will take control. It is later than you think! Events foretold In The 1995 Illuminati Card Game -- "Stage Being Set"
One of the major cards is a "Messiah" and a "Rapture" card, confirming our teaching that the Illuminati knows the Rapture of the Church is real
Additional Cards of Interest: Natural Disasters, Hurricanes, Tornados, Earthquakes, Weather Control, Mind Control -- all designed to bring the Masonic Christ (Antichrist) to power. NOTE: Visit the Cutting Edge Illuminati Card Game Section, to read our numerous analytical articles and view our Bookstore Resources on this "Smoking Gun" information. No other single piece of evidence is nearly as strong as the Illuminati Card Game, in proving that the attacks of 9/11 were carried out by government agents exactly in conformity to the 1995 Illuminati Card Game.
This DVD discloses astounding news about Russia's super-secret weapons which will easily defeat America. This weapons system is called "Scalar Weaponry" and possesses the capability to knock out anything on the land, under the sea, on the sea, or in the air. This "energetics" weapons system will render all conventional weapons of war totally obsolete.
This weapons system will change the world and how mankind conducts war - forever.
Cutting Edge reports on this weapons system in NEWS1776 and NEWS1776b. Listen to this quote from Col. Byron Weeks - "We are weaker now than we have ever been. Bush´s bravado is empty, and even if we do have the Tesla howitzer, so do Russia and China, and Russia has had scalar EM weapons longer--long enough to have tried and tested various forms of them many times. But although we evidently do have some HAARP powered weapons, physicist LTC Thomas Beardon says we don´t have much, if any, and our scalar weaponry is not yet ready to deploy effectively ...." "If attacked, our ground forces will be as vulnerable as sitting ducks, out on the hot sandy desert with no place to hide. America´s cities and outmoded ABM systems will not protect us ... we can expect to be attacked on all sides, with nuclear bombs, neutron bombs, EMPs, and the longitudinal electromagnetic interferometer waves that will come down upon us as fire from heaven. America will burn ..."
America's HAARP is no match for Russia's Scalar! -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1083
Finally! Scalar Wave weaponry and technology explained and fully illustrated
so a simple average person can understand! Ltc. Beardon, America's foremost
expert in Russian Scalar Weaponry, writes the book we Americans must read
at the lateness of our national hour. Beardon explains:
How Russia is getting ready to destroy America with Scalar Weaponry -- the title says it best: "Oblivion: America At The Brink".
* How Scalar electromagnetic waves are daily bringing the Yellowstone Supervolcano closer to an explosion which will wipe our entire continent out with fire and brimstone
* How American scientists still cannot understand scalar because of our misunderstanding of basic physics of electricity and electromagnetics
* How Weather is being engineering by the KGB
* How the new "Energy-From-Vacuum" Electrical Systems works.
* How lethal strikes with Scalar flies at Speed of Light and are totally unstoppable, striking with horrific disasters
* How Gulf War Disease was aided by use of scalar waves to decrease the natural immune systems of our soldiers
* Electromagnetic Biological Warfare - How scalar waves can cause you to catch a biological disease
* How Russia's Quantum Potential Weapons can "dud" every nuclear warhead, every ICBM, every nuclear propulsion system, every bomber carrying nuclear warheads, within 10 minutes! Our entire arsenal of nukes would be totally "dudded" -- neutralized -- so that we will be totally at the mercy of the Russian KGB.
*Provides Mind Control through Scalar, through which living minds and biological system engines have been created in laboratories. Such "living minds" can be inserted into key persons, awaiting activation. Can take over entire enemy leadership with this capability.
368 pages, many dozens of pictures and/or illustrations -- Best single resource available anywhere to understand this most important subject.
In the Book of Revelation, the number of people killed by God's judgments equals 66%; the Illuminati has precisely this same figure in mind! God many times uses wicked man to deliver His judgment, and this End of the Age period is no exception. God has allowed scientists working for the Illuminati to unlock the secrets of death listed below, so His prophecies could be fulfilled.
Dynamic topics include: Vioxx, artifical fertilzers, pesices, injections, Immunizations, Vaccinations, genetically altered seeds, cell phones, diet drinks, Soy products, Mercury preservatives, MSG, Aspartame, Fluoridated water, suppressed cures, Chemtrails, aluminum cans & cookware, Anthrax, Cancer treatments, DDT, created diseases, milk additives and processes, MTBE, Splenda and that is just scratching the surface!

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
NEWS BRIEF: "NRA warns of U.N. gun control: U.S. participating in upcoming small-arms conference", World Net Daily, June 16, 2006
"An American delegation will participate in a controversial United Nations small-arms conference criticized by Second Amendment advocates as a threat to U.S. gun ownership. The U.N. Small Arms Review Conference will meet in New York City June 26 to July 7 to discuss illegal trafficking in arms, 'ineffective national controls' and related issues.'
Conservatives have been most concerned about maintaining their Second Amendment rights to own and operate guns. Throughout the Clinton years, gun groups generally maintained a high level of awareness amongst its members whenever any Clinton action might be construed as being aimed against the Second Amendment; however, these same Conservatives have seemingly gone to sleep once "Conservative" George W. Bush ascended the Presidency.
What is so agitating to Conservatives is that President Bush would allow a gun control delegation to even attend this awful U.N. meeting!
"The U.N. Small Arms Review Conference will meet in New York City June 26 to July 7 to discuss illegal trafficking in arms, 'ineffective national controls' and related issues. The U.N.'s disarmament effort features a program in which it buys back weapons in nations torn by civil strife." (Ibid.)
I have been watching the news from "Non-Integrating States" for a very long time now, as well as monitoring the United Nations news website. In reading the daily news coming from these two sources, I have been amazed at the quiet, but pervasive, activities the United Nations has been carrying out throughout the globe, without very many people even being aware that the U.N. is doing anything! On a recent radio interview on "Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings", the lady co-host told me that the world's global government has to be a long way off, because the U.N. is pretty inactive and few people are placing any credibility in the world body. My response is that she is just not paying attention!
Please start paying attention to the daily activities of the United Nations, for this global "government-in-waiting" is quietly extending its tentacles around the globe, putting itself into position to assume global government control once the time is right, once the principle of National Sovereignty is eliminated.
Now, let us return to our featured story.
"... National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre insists the U.N. is concerned about more than illicit arms in African hot spots. He says the global body wants the firearms of American citizens – and much more. 'So, after we are disarmed, the U.N. wants us demobilized and reintegrated', says the NRA's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, according to the Economist magazine. 'I can hear it now: 'Step right this way for your reprogramming, sir. Once we confiscate your guns, we can demobilize your aggressive instincts and reintegrate you into civil society.' No thanks."
These facts are altogether true -- unfortunately. Then, LaPierre correctly notes the historic reality that the deadliest threat to "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" of individual citizens is government!
"Noting that during the 20th century, governments murdered 169 million people in various parts of the world, the NRA leader says individual gun ownership is the "ultimate protection against tyranny." (Ibid.)
The real shocking fact of this statement is that the 169 million citizen deaths by their government may be too low. I believe the correct figure is well over a quarter million people. In fact, dictators will not show their true faces to the people until and after they have persuaded them to disarm. The latest major example of this truth is Nazi Germany. In the mid-1930's, Hitler began a massive campaign to persuade the German people that they would be much safer if they gave up control of their guns.
Hitler moved to Absolute Dictatorship only after his forces had confiscated the vast majority of the guns of the German people. Once German citizens gave up their right to own and operate guns, they were at the mercy of a man like Adolf Hitler. Once Hitler was satisfied that his victims could no longer defend themselves, he began to systematically murder the Jews.
Current Illuminati Plans call for the same type of arms confiscation -- on a global scale this time.
In America, our Skull & Bones President -- Mr. Bush -- is now cooperating with the United Nations' global gun control program. Remembering that Skull & Bones is a Brotherhood of Death Society, just as Hitler's Thule Society was a Brotherhood of Death Society!
We can only hope that Americans really rise up to be heard as one on this "life-and-death" issue.
Now, let us turn to a major government propaganda article which tries to justify this global gun control plan. Remember, V.O.A. (Voice of America) is a major American propaganda organization.
NEWS BRIEF: "Oxfam
International Says Bullets Fuel Conflicts: Therefore, small arms must
be regulated", By Michael Drudge, London, VOA News,
15 June 2006
"The British-based charity, Oxfam International, says uncontrolled trade of ammunition around the world fuels conflicts in Africa, the Middle East, and beyond. Oxfam is issuing its findings before a major U.N. conference on small arms trade due to begin June 26. The manager of Oxfam's "Control Arms" campaign, Anna MacDonald, says a new report examines how the unregulated flow of ammunition across international borders leads to death and injury.
"The scale of the ammunition trade is increasing massively," she said. 'Globally, 33 million bullets are produced every day. That is two bullets per every man, woman and child on the planet per year. And lax controls on these bullets means that millions of them are ending up in war zones, and falling into the hands of human rights ab users'. MacDonald says, there is a clear and demonstrated connection between the availability of ammunition and the level of fighting in strife-torn countries."
I would advise you to take these statistics with the same grain of salt with which we have learned to take the Global Warming statistics! This figure of 33 million bullets per day smacks like the Global Warming statistic that 80 acres of rainforest per minute was being lost to destructive human activity. That statistic has since been proven wrong, so we cannot trust this kind of statistic designed to scare people enough to allow their guns to be taken by the very government which is cooperating with the global plan to reduce the world's population by 66%.
II. The NAFTA Super Nation about which we have long warned continues to take shape before our eyes, in our Daily News.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway", by Jerome R. Corsi, Human Events, June 12, 2006
"Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn."
As you can see, this distance is positively huge! This highway is also going to be 4 football fields wide, an unprecedented width for a superhighway. If this means that the highway is going to be as wide as a football field is long, that means the highway will be 400 yards wide! If this calculation is referring to the width of a football field, the highway is going to be 200 yards wide. Any way you want to calculate, that is one huge highway!
At the time NAFTA was created, proponents argued that the main reason to create this super economic nation was to stimulate the creation, sale, and movement, of goods and services, the likes of which have never yet been seen. This major highway would certainly live up to that hype, as its potential carrying capacity is beyond anything ever seen on this continent.
But, of course, that is the plan -- to create an economic superstate which would slowly become a super political state.
This next segment reflects the enormity of the volume of traffic being planned, as well as the advantages given Mexican trucking companies over their American counterparts.
"Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman’s Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation’s most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new 'SENTRI' system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City." (Ibid.)
As you can see, the outrageous favoritism currently being shown to illegal immigrants is just the tip of the iceberg as to the kind of favoritism planned in the very near future. How far into the future is this monstrous highway project? You will be surprised.
"As incredible as this plan may seem to some readers, the first Trans-Texas
Corridor segment of the NAFTA Super Highway is ready to begin construction
next year. Various U.S. government agencies, dozens of state agencies, and
scores of private NGOs (non-governmental organizations) have been working
behind the scenes to create the NAFTA Super Highway, despite the lack of comment
on the plan by President Bush. The American public is largely asleep to this
key piece of the coming “North
American Union” that government planners in the new trilateral
region of United States, Canada and Mexico are about to drive into reality."
Next year!! That time period is only six months away, which is probably the reason that America's Bush, Mexico's Fox, and Canada's Harper met in a NAFTA summit just weeks ago (Newsletter for April 1, 2006, Paragraph II), and THE major reason that the issue of illegal immigrants gaining serious citizenship rights is now being pushed.
Bush Administration planners might be awaiting the legalization of immigrants before telling the American public of this fancy new road!
III. Meanwhile, border tensions seem to be rising high.
NEWS BRIEF: "Minuteman Group Hires Fence-Building Contractor", Fox News, June 15, 2006
"SIERRA VISTA, Arizona — The Minutemen civilian border-patrol group has hired a contractor to finish building 10 miles of fence along the Mexican border. Construction on the fence began May 27, when about 150 supporters turned out for the groundbreaking ... We don't want to put up something that will just be a symbol," said Al Garza, the group's executive director. "We want to make sure it's permanent, properly structured and done right."
"As few as four people were observed working on the fence recently, said Cecile Lumer of the humanitarian aid group Citizens for Border Solutions. 'From the beginning, the numbers they have projected have always fallen very short of the reality', Lumer said. One of the ranch owners, Jack Ladd, said he hoped the fence would keep Mexican livestock off his property, but he doubted it would keep people out. 'We want to make it clear that while we oppose illegal immigration, we weren't necessarily trying to keep Mexicans off the land', he said."
Obviously, this fence construction can only be symbolic, because the Minuteman group does not possess the hundreds of millions of dollars necessary to fully fund a real fence that would keep people out. Furthermore, the fence would one day have to extend beyond the property of the ranch owners, and there government would put a stop to the meaningful fence -- if the courts did not step in first.
NEWS BRIEF: "Border agents take gunfire: No one injured", by Alexis Huicochea, Arizona Daily Star, June 15, 2006
"Several Border Patrol agents were fired upon Wednesday evening in Nogales while responding to a call about a vehicle that was entering the country without going through a port of entry ... Around 7 p.m. Border Patrol agents responded to a report of a silver Mercedes sport utility vehicle driving through the desert in Nogales, said Jesus Rodriguez, a spokesman for the agency's Tucson Sector. As the agents neared the SUV, they were fired upon, he said. One patrol vehicle took rounds to the windshield and the body. The agent in that vehicle fired back as did another agent in a separate vehicle, he said. No agents were injured and it was unclear if any of the suspects were hit, Rodriguez said."
"The SUV was abandoned and three people were seen running from that general area, he said. Inside the SUV, agents discovered 700 pounds of what appears to be marijuana."
With the furor caused in President Fox's government because President Bush had ordered National Guard troops to patrol sections of the border, can you imagine the political firestorm which would be set off by some illegal actually getting killed? That kind of political battling is just the kind which would enable American authorities to force this illegal immigration bill through Congress and on to the office of the President.
IV. In order to act like they are "getting tough", Immigration Agents suddenly began rounding up thousands of illegals. Even though many of those illegal immigrants rounded up were not Mexican, the whole affair has to be aimed at mollifying those Conservatives who are now convinced that President Bush has absolutely no policy to protect America's borders and her citizens.
NEWS BRIEF: "Federal Immigrations Agents Arrest About 2,000 Illegal Immigrants", By ANDREW RYAN, Associated Press Writer, June 14, 2006
" swarm of federal immigration agents sped silently, headlights off, down a Boston side street early Wednesday and surrounded an apartment house. 'Police! Policia! Police!', yelled Daniel Monico, a deportation officer, holding his badge to a window where someone had pulled back the curtain. 'Open the door!' Moments later, agents led a dazed-looking Jose Ferreira Da Silva, 35, out in handcuffs. The Brazilian had been arrested in 2002 and deported, but had slipped back into the country. He now faces up to 20 years in prison."
"In a blitz that began May 26, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested nearly 2,100 illegal immigrants across the country. Officials said the raids are aimed at child molesters, gang members and other violent criminals, as well as people like Da Silva who sneaked back into the country after a judge threw them out.
"The crackdown is called Operation Return to Sender."
This next statistic will shock you senseless.
"There are more than 500,000 'fugitive aliens' who have been deported by judges and either slipped back into the country or never left. There is often a disconnect between local and state prisons and the federal government that allows illegal immigrants to serve time and be released without being transferred to federal officials for deportation."
In a nation still traumatized by the attacks of 9/11, this kind of situation is intolerable! We have paid billions of dollars since 9/11 to beef up our security, even to the point of threatening native-born Americans with a real loss of personal freedoms and rights. Yet, our court system, and the policing system supporting the courts, are so lax that over 500,000 illegals who have been deported have slipped back into the country!
This sad truth points up the fact that the repeated terrorist scares following 9/11 are truly bogus. Were Islamic militants really out to terrorize America, they could be doing so nearly every single day, hitting countless numbers of targets -- for this country is so big and so porous and so vulnerable that any number of terrorists could easily sneak into this country to carry out real acts of terror.
Therefore, the fact that we have not suffered any terrorist attack since 9/11 is more because of the reality that Islamic terrorism is vastly overblown and to the fact that the attacks of 9/11 were a "government provocateur" operation than to a tightening of security.
Dulles Airport was singled out in this "get tough" operation.
NEWS BRIEF: "US arrests 55 illegal workers at Dulles airport"
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. immigration officials said on Wednesday they had arrested 55 illegal immigrants who were working at a construction site in the secure area at Dulles International Airport. Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement made the arrests early in the morning as the workers were being bussed to the construction site and were attempting to pass through a security checkpoint.
"ICE said in a statement that one of the workers had a security badge that grants unescorted access to the tarmac of the Virginia-based airport that serves Washington DC."
Once again, we must face the reality that American security is a joke, even after five full years of spending enormous sums of money to supposedly upgrade our security capability.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush in Baghdad: 'Seize the moment': President surprises troops, Iraqi officials in show of support", CNN News, Tuesday, June 13, 2006
"BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- President Bush capped a surprise trip to Baghdad on Tuesday by visiting U.S. troops and urging Iraqis to "seize the moment" and rally behind their new government. ' come away from here believing that the will is strong and the desire to meet the needs of the people is real and tangible', Bush said after meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and the new leader's Cabinet."
President Bush and his advisers remembered the increase in popularity the President gained by supposedly making a Thanksgiving Day trip to American forces in Baghdad a number of years ago. This kind of political ploy is undoubtedly designed to bolster the President's poor poll ratings. And, since he has been unflagging in his support of the newly appointed Iraqi government, it makes propaganda sense to publicly bolster the Iraqi politicians who have literally placed their life on the line to follow the American script.
President Bush spoke publicly with the Iraqi leadership and then to a military crowd guaranteed to be friendly and supportive.
"Bush told the troops that he came to Baghdad 'to look Prime Minister [al-]Maliki in the eyes to determine whether or not he is as dedicated to a free Iraq as you are -- and I believe he is'. 'I have come today to personally show our nation's commitment to a free Iraq', he said. 'My message to the Iraqi people is this: Seize the moment. Seize this opportunity to develop a government of and by and for the people ... While in Baghdad, the President continued to act tough, saying America will not set a withdrawal timetable."
Of course, President Bush desperately wants these new Iraqi leaders to "seize the moment" and do something meaningful to defeat the insurgency, because America cannot effect a meaningful withdrawal until the government is able to make progress in the war against the insurgents. Parallels to Vietnam continue to abound, do they not?
This next news story is most assuredly propaganda, but it does reveal that the real reason President Bush staged his "surprise visit" to Baghdad was to gain political advantage for this beleaguered President. Note also the tie-in to the killing of the American agent, Zarqawi last week.
NEWS BRIEF: "Democrats in disarray as Bush basks in glow of Iraq trip",
"US President George W. Bush's triumphant return from his unannounced visit in Iraq found opposition Democrats more divided than ever on US policy in the wartorn country, and how best to capitalize on administration missteps there. Republicans basked in the afterglow of the president's dramatic lightning visit Tuesday to meet with Iraq's new Prime Minister Nuri Maliki -- an event likely to figure prominently in a daylong debate Thursday in the House of Representatives on Iraq and the US "war on terror."
"Bush's trip Tuesday followed last week's successes in Iraq, with the formation of the country's new unity government and the killing of Al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. But Democrats -- who have disagreed about the war since the invasion more than three years ago -- continued to be riven by internal dissent, particularly on the critical question of an exit strategy from Iraq. One of the party's most prominent figures, Senator John Kerry, is expected to introduce a resolution this week calling for a pullout of American forces by the end of the year."
When you see Skull & Bones Kerry vigorously criticizing Skull & Bones Bush, you must realize that you are witnessing the outworking of a Master Plan. In this instance, Kerry's attacks on Bush's policies is providing the planned struggle of the Dialectic very well.
Now, let us return to this current news article:
"But at the same forum, another top Senate Democrat, Hillary Clinton, insisted that it would not be a 'smart strategy' to create a timeline to leave Iraq. Both Kerry and Clinton are also leading presidential contenders in 2008, an election in which Iraq is due to figure prominently. The divisions over Iraq also come with Democrats fighting to reclaim the House and Senate from Republicans in midterm elections in November." (Ibid.)
This "division" amongst Democrat leaders is also part of the Dialectic, so just take it all in stride. America is going to be in for a very heavy dose of political posturing as we head into the Fall. Just remember that both parties are equally committed to achieving the New World Order, and each knows the role it is to play in working out the script.
"The script", you might ask? Yes, the script. Listen to New World Order author, Peter Lemesurier as he explains.
"Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors...have already taken their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise."
The time for action will have come." (Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", page 252, published in 1981)
A bolder statement of the truth has never been written. The New World Order is progressing according to the most detailed plan the world has ever seen. In our seminar, we quote the passage of the original Plan of the New World Order, written in the mid-1700's, where the author states, "When we come into our kingdom...who will ever suspect that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries." (William Cooper, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 303)
NEWS BRIEF: "10 Killed 20 Hurt in Iraq Mosque Bombing", The Guardian (London), June 16, 2006
"BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A suicide bomber struck a Shiite mosque during Friday prayers in Baghdad, killing at least 10 people and wounding 20, police said, as violence persisted in the capital despite a massive security operation aimed at restoring order.
Police Lt. Thaer Mahmoud said the attacker blew himself up at the Buratha mosque in northern Baghdad.
Mahmoud said the bomber was wearing an explosive belt, but Jalal Eddin al-Sagheer, the preacher at the mosque and one of the country's leading politicians, however, said the explosives were inside a worshipper's shoes."

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A roadside bomb targeting a bus taking workers to Baghdad's main oil refinery killed six people and wounded 12 others on Monday ... The bomb blast in the capital's southern Dora district came a day after al Qaeda in Iraq vowed to carry out large-scale attacks that would 'shake the enemy' after the killing of its leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi ... 'Three cars were driving ahead of us, suddenly there was an explosion and a cloud of smoke', driver Karim Salman told Reuters television, standing near the bloodstained bus."
Iraqi sources are suddenly warning that an American deadly assault against Ramadi might be in the early stages, and that this assault might devastate Ramadi as much as Fallujah was devastated. The really pertinent question is, will American forces kill as many civilians as they did in Fallujah?
Listen and be concerned:
NEWS BRIEF: "Fear of Big Battle Panics Iraqi City", The L.A. Times, as reprinted by Truthout Magazine, 11 June 2006
"Baghdad - Fears of an imminent offensive by the U.S. troops massed around the insurgent stronghold of Ramadi intensified Saturday, with residents pouring out of the city to escape what they describe as a mounting humanitarian crisis. The image pieced together from interviews with tribal leaders and fleeing families in recent weeks is one of a desperate population of 400,000 people trapped in the crossfire between insurgents and U.S. forces. Food and medical supplies are running low, prices for gas have soared because of shortages and municipal services have ground to a stop ... 'The situation is catastrophic. No services, no electricity, no water', said Sheik Fassal Gaood, the former governor of Al Anbar province, whose capital is Ramadi.
"People in Ramadi are caught between two plagues: the vicious, armed insurgents and the American and Iraqi troops."
"Ramadi has become a town where anti-American guerrillas operate openly and city bureaucrats are afraid to acknowledge their job titles for fear of being killed. Masked members of Al Qaeda in Iraq, the organization led by Zarqawi, perhaps borrowing from the American hearts-and-minds campaign, drop by elementary schools to pass out pens, books and toys, U.S. intelligence officers say. The government center in downtown Ramadi, a fortified complex where the governor holds meetings with U.S. officials and tribal leaders, comes under gunfire or mortar attacks daily. "
If this sounds like an impending disaster to you, it should. How could Coalition and Iraqi forces so completely lose control of a city of 400,000?
Combined forces action seemed imminent.
"U.S. and Iraqi forces had cordoned off the city by Saturday, residents and Iraqi officials said. Airstrikes on several residential areas picked up, and troops took to the streets with loudspeakers to warn civilians of a fierce impending attack, Ramadi police Capt. Tahseen Dulaimi said. U.S. military officials refused to confirm or deny reports that a Ramadi offensive was underway."
Whenever the American military "refuses to confirm or deny" a news report, that generally means that the news story was correct. But, people on the ground remain convinced that just such an offensive is in its earliest stage.
"Residents have been particularly unnerved by the recent arrival of 1,500 U.S. troops sent to reinforce the forces already stationed at the city. Street battles between troops and insurgents have been raging for months, but the troops' deployment left residents bracing for a mass offensive to take the town back from insurgents. 'It is becoming hell up there', said Mohammed Fahdawi, a 42-year-old contractor who packed up his four children and fled to Baghdad two weeks ago. 'It is unbelievable: The Americans seem to have brought all of their troops to Ramadi'." (Ibid.)
Now, the comparison to the 2004 disaster in Fallujah is voiced:
"The fearful city is haunted by memories of the battles that raged in nearby Fallujah in 2004. Determined to purge that city of insurgents, U.S. Marine and Army units lined up to the north and pushed south through the heart of Fallujah. They cleared one neighborhood after another in intense, constant street fighting. By the time the sweep was over, the town was largely destroyed ... A sprawling agricultural and smuggling hub on the banks of the Euphrates, Ramadi has long been one of the U.S. military's stickiest problems. The largest city in Sunni-dominated Al Anbar province, Ramadi has degenerated into a haven for insurgents. Even now, when U.S. forces are working to scale back their presence throughout Iraq, daily combat continues to roil the city."
One of the statements in this article lead me to wonder if the death of the American agent, Zarqawi, wasn't part of the American plan to take back Ramadi.
"The death last week of Jordanian-born terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi may have dealt a psychological blow to the Iraq insurgency. But it is not expected to dent the destabilizing power of anti-American guerrillas in Al Anbar."
If you are not yet aware that the "dreaded terrorist" Abu Musab Zarqawi was an American agent, please take a few moments to read NEWS2127.
VIII. The news about Iran took a surprising twist this week, as Iran's public rhetoric was alternately encouraging and bellicose.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran Declares: Incentive Package a 'Step Forward' ", The Guardian (London), Friday June 16, 2006
"SHANGHAI, China (AP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Friday that the six-nation incentive package aimed at getting his country to halt uranium enrichment was a step forward in resolving the dispute over Iran's nuclear program. 'Generally speaking, we're regarding this offer as a step forward and I have instructed my colleagues to carefully consider it', Ahmadinejad told reporters after meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao on the sidelines of a regional summit in Shanghai."
"Ahmadinejad's remark was the highest-level sign that Iran was preparing to negotiate over the package of incentives offered by the Big Five of the U.N. Security Council, plus Germany. The proposal called for negotiations, with the U.S. to take part, and other incentives on the condition that Iran freeze its uranium enrichment program. "
Can you see the 3-year propaganda campaign against Iran's supposed nuclear enrichment program collapsing? A few weeks ago, in our newsletter, we remarked that Russia and China had maneuvered President Bush into seeking redress against Iran under a far different U.N. directive than the President used against Iraq. Neither Russia nor China wanted the situation to ever get to the point where America could break off talks and invade Iran.
Once Iran could be assured that she would not be invaded, she began to show flexibility, while the American / European Union side bowed to pressure from China and Russia by putting forth a proposal that was both flexible and moderate. The Iranian president is responding to this moderate proposal.
However, at the same time as Iran's President Ahmadinejad sounded an upbeat note on the possibility of positive negotiations, her Defense Minister vowed to fight back militarily against any military action coming from the West. And, how would Iran fight back? With the nuclear weapons she says she does not possess!
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran would 'use nuclear defense' ", The Jerusalem Post, June 16, 2006
"Iran's defense minister on Thursday vowed that his country would 'use nuclear defense as a potential' if 'threatened by any power'. Speaking following a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Hassan Ali Turkmani in Teheran on Thursday, Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar emphasized that Iran 'should be ready for confronting all kinds of threats'."
On the surface, this statement is purely bunk! No military of any nation can respond to a real military attack by using "potential" weapons. The Iranian military can only respond to a Western attack with the very real weaponry in her arsenal at the moment of attack. Therefore, what could the Iranian Defense Minister have been really saying?
I think he was warning that Iran would use the nuclear weapons which she has had in her arsenal since early 2002 against any Western attack. Cutting Edge has taught since June, 2002, that Iran had nuclear weapons in her arsenal, most likely bought "off the shelf" from either Pakistan or North Korea, or both! If you have not read our expose' of this fact, please take a few moments to read:
NEWS1660 -- "Mushroom Clouds In The Middle East"
A Russian general disclosed, during a news conference in Moscow in June, 2002, that Iran already possessed nuclear weapons. However, he assured his Russian listeners that they had nothing to fear, since Iran did not have the missile capability to hit Russian targets. Read this entire article, above, for it reveals much of great interest in view of the propaganda news of the past three years that Iran "is close" to building a nuclear bomb.
We have always stated that it made sense that Pakistan would have been the country who sold Iran her supply of nuclear weapons. With this thought in mind, let us review the following article.
NEWS BRIEF: "Nuclear scientist is off-limits, Pakistan tells US: Whose black market network sold nuclear technology to Iran and North Korea", Times On Line, UK, June 15, 2006
"The security ring surrounding Abdul Qadeer Khan’s sprawling mansion at the foot of Margalla hills in Islamabad has visibly tightened in recent weeks. Uniformed soldiers with machine guns block all access to the property and scrutinise every passing vehicle. Mr Khan, the 'Father' of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb, has been under house arrest since February 2004 when he confessed to operating an international bazaar for nuclear technology ... Pakistani military intelligence officials visit him. A long list of others would like to but are forbidden. That list is headed by the Americans, for Mr Khan is perhaps the only man outside Iran who knows precisely what nuclear technology the Tehran regime has received, and what it plans to do with it. The United States has repeatedly asked the Pakistani authorities for permission to interrogate him, but is always rebuffed. Pakistan recently announced that its investigation into the whole affair was closed."
This kind of diplomatic rebuff is most shocking, since Pakistan's President Musharref has been President Bush's "buddy" since 9/11. American technology has enabled Pakistani intelligence to thwart at least two attacks on Musharref's life. Yet, the Pakistani President is refusing American efforts to gain access to Dr. Khan. Let us now return to this next segment, for we shall see that Pakistan did, indeed, cooperate with Iran and North Korea in the issue of nuclear weapons.
"Mr Khan has confessed to passing nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea." (Ibid.)
We believe the evidence sufficiently strong -- especially given the remarks from the Russian general -- that Pakistan did not merely "pass nuclear secrets" to Iran, but that her officials took the cold, hard cash from Iran, and delivered live, operating nuclear warheads. That scenario seems to offer the only plausible way in which Iran could have had live, operational nuclear warheads in June, 2002.
Given the reality that Iran has nuclear weapons, we ask our question again: "Nuclear Armed Iran vs Nuclear Armed America: Whom Should The World Fear"?
VIII. Iran is continuing to build the type of diplomatic bridges which make a Western attack more remote by the day! At the end of this week, the Iranian President landed in Shanghai, China, to attend an Asian Oil Regional Summit -- he found that he was among friends!
NEWS BRIEF: "Iranian Leader Arrives for Shanghai Regional Summit: Might develop into anti-American bloc",
"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Shanghai on Wednesday for the summit of a regional security group, a visit that could indicate whether the forum will evolve into an anti-U.S. bloc. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) says it isn't aimed at any third parties. Yet its dominant members, China and Russia, are frequently at odds with Washington and have resisted U.S. efforts to seek tougher U.N. action in the standoff over Iran's nuclear program."
President Bush should not have made so many national enemies out of nations who are rich in oil reserves and whose militaries are modern, well-armed, and well led. Just such an Anti-American bloc could very well be forming in Shanghai right now.
"The six-nation SCO was set up 10 years ago to deal with border disputes, but it has slowly expanded its reach into counterterrorism, defense, energy and economic cooperation. The SCO's other members are Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Pakistan, Mongolia, and India are also attending as observers, while Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai is a special guest at the meeting ... While China denies the SCO is a military alliance, it offers China's communist regime a high-profile platform to flex its growing regional influence. China has especially stressed the SCO's progress in boosting regional security and economic ties among its members, and the official Xinhua News Agency said the summit will inaugurate a business forum within the SCO framework.
About $2 billion in contracts and loans are also expected to be signed at
the summit ..."
This next news story strongly indicates that Iran fully intends to use this forum to press for new support for her stance against the United States.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran’s President Seeks Russian, Chinese Support for Nuclear Plans", MOSNEWS, June 15, 2006
"Iran’s hard-line president is doing more than just attending an Asian security summit in China: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seeks to gain Russian and Chinese support at a critical moment for his country’s nuclear program ... Past trips to Asia have been a chance for Ahmadinejad to tap into anti-U.S. sentiment and tout himself as a leader who is standing up to Washington ... Ahmadinejad is expected to hold separate meetings with his Chinese and Russian counterparts, Hu Jintao and Vladimir Putin, on the sidelines of the regional summit in Shanghai."
As President Bush's foreign policies begin to bear mature fruit, we more easily see the true fruits. They are not good, for they have alienated vast stretches of countries in the Middle East and Asia. Islamic countries, especially, have solidified their opposition to American policies, and are rapidly reaching a boiling point -- to where they will oppose America and Israel on every issue, to the point of allowing their destruction in a future war into which they have been goaded.
For the past three years, we have been warning that the Illuminati strategy called, "Blood In The Streets" is being pursued. That strategy calls for a nation possessing vastly superior military power to start deliberating goading nations whose military is vastly inferior into such fury that their leaders one day will participate in a war in which they will be annihilated.
Today, America's scandalous way in which we tortured and sexually humiliated Islamic prisoners, the way in which we have deliberately killed over 100,000 civilians, the way in which we have spread Depleted Uranium Poisoning to 857 million people in the region, are all going to coalesce one day to produce a conflagration in which the Illuminati Plan to annihilate the 1.4 billion Muslims could begin to unfold.
And, make no mistake about it -- Biblical prophecy will be fulfilled here. The Illuminati Plan will gradually draw all Muslim nations into repeated onslaughts against Israel generally and Jerusalem particularly. Read Zechariah 12 very carefully, for that is the Plan. Consider these representative Scriptures:
* "And in that day, I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for peoples ... And all the nations of the earth shall come and gather together against it. (Zechariah 12:3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
* "And it shall be in that day that I will make it My aim to destroy all the nations of the world that come against Jerusalem." (Zechariah 12:9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Watch your daily news, for the Islamic nations of the world will react to America's deliberate scandals against them and grow insanely angry against Jerusalem. Can you see wave after wave of Islamic armies, from one nation after another, coming against Jerusalem? Once the armies of the Middle East are destroyed in their attack on Israel, the armies of Indonesia will be stimulated to gather a naval transport force to attack Israel, and so on and so forth.
Prophecy is being fulfilled in your Daily News!
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinians to hold July 26 referendum", by Mohammed Daraghmed, Associated Press, Reprinted Saturday, June 10, 2006 Canada.com, June 10, 2006
"RAMALLAH, West Bank -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared Saturday he would hold a referendum July 26 on the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. Abbas made the declaration despite pleas by the ruling Hamas party to hold off on the vote and rising military tensions in the area. Some observers say Abbas should win a clear majority in support of the referendum question, which would implicitly recognize the right of Israel to exist."
From the very beginning of this struggle between Arafat and his Palestinian people and the state of Israel back in 1982, the Palestinians have resolutely refused to even consider that Israel might have the inherent right to exist! The vast majority of Palestinians wanted Israel dead and its people annihilated. Chairman Arafat used to love to say that he could not wait for the day when all Israelis will be forced to drink of the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, a metaphor for drowning the entire Jewish population.
For this reason, Arafat fought for concessions from the Israeli Government, only to demand more once he received his immediate concession. His ultimate goal was to so carve up Israel that not even the vaunted Israeli Defense Force could defend the nation from an attack without and within (See Pentagon's report of this strategy - NEWS1057, published 10 years ago, still just as relevant as the day we posted it).
Therefore, we can see that Palestinian Chairman Abbas is ready to do something that Arafat would never do -- recognize Israel's national right to exist, and to establish a Palestinian State. However, this proposal in itself is shocking, for it reveals that the boundaries of this new Palestinian State would be based upon the historically inadequate 1967 borders!
"The referendum will ask the Palestinians whether they accept the so-called Prisoners' Document, which was put together by leaders of the different Palestinian factions held in Israeli jails. The document says the Palestinians should establish a state on lands Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war. The voters will be asked to answer yes or no, the presidential decree said. Should Hamas sign on to the document, it would have to set aside its goal of destroying Israel to form a Palestinian state on the entire territory." (Ibid.)
Of course, once the Palestinians establish their new government, they can begin to use state resources to plan to destroy Israel.
And, of course, that is exactly what Israel has in mind!
This past week, I spoke at length with a Jewish Cabbalist scholar, after she had delivered an hour-long presentation on the coming of the two Jewish Messiahs -- the first one being a Warrior while the second one being a King! When I asked her about what she thought of the Unilateral Withdrawal from The Gaza and the West Bank so the Palestinians could be given their state, her response took my breath away!
"I think", she said, "that the Israeli Government has decided to give them their State, so that Israel could then wage war on them as a State, rather than on helpless individuals!"
Cutting Edge has long been saying that Israel was deliberately setting up the Palestinians to be annihilated, in full conformity with ancient Old Testament prophecy, in the Book of Obadiah. If you are not familiar with this understanding, please take a moment to read the following articles, noting the dates on which they were posted:
* NEWS1422 -- "The Coming Prophesied Annihilation of the Palestinians -- Today's 'House of Esau' " (Posted October, 2000)
* NEWS1620 -- "Israeli Prime Minister Sharon Declares Israel Will Build 'Physical Buffers" To Physically Separate Palestinian Population From Jewish" (Posted March, 2002)
* NEWS1625 -- "Jewish Professor Accuses Sharon Government of Planning Palestinian Genocide" (Posted March, 2002)
* NEWS2058 -- "Jewish Settler Activists Issue Worldwide Warning -- Israeli Government Planning Massive Attack On Palestinian Civilians In Gaza Strip After Withdrawing Jewish Settlers To Safety!" (Posted July, 2005)
* NEWS2095 - "Leading Orthodox Jewish Scholars Confirm Cutting Edge Teaching That Today's Palestinians Are The House of Esau (Obadiah 15-18)
The Smoking Gun Proof of Masonic Conspiracy In Current Israeli Affairs
Please note the most interesting revelation in Texe Marrs' book, "Codex Magica" (Page 152), in which Palestinian leader Abbas, is shown exchanging a Masonic handshake with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. This shocking picture reveals that the entire scenario in Israel is controlled by Masons! From Israel's plan for Unilateral Withdrawal, to Palestinian terror strikes, and to the infighting amongst Palestinian terror groups -- all these events are controlled by the Masonic axis of power -- Great Britain, United States, and Israel.
Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right in front of your eyes, with the planned outcome being the staged appearance of the Masonic Christ.
But, Cutting Edge has been saying this for a very long time, haven't we? If you do not understand the reality that the entire scenario in Israel is being controlled by the total Masonic obsession with rebuilding Solomon's Temple for their coming Masonic Christ, please take a few moments to read NEWS1643.
You are witnessing, in the Daily News, the preparation for the staged appearance of Antichrist! Can you feel the prophetic excitement in the air?

Satan is attacking Protestant Churches as well as the Roman Catholic Church. Surely, the evil winds of Satan is blowing through this world, at this End of the Age.
"The Lord is my light and my salvation." Here is personal interest, "my light," "my salvation"; the soul is assured of it, and therefore declares it boldly. Into the soul at the new birth divine light is poured as the precursor of salvation; where there is not enough light to reveal our own darkness and to make us long for the Lord Jesus, there is no evidence of salvation. After conversion our God is our joy, comfort, guide, teacher, and in every sense our light: He is light within, light around, light reflected from us, and light to be revealed to us. Note, it is not said merely that the Lord gives light, but that He is light; nor that He gives salvation, but that He is salvation; he, then, who by faith has laid hold upon God, has all covenant blessings in his possession. This being made sure as a fact, the argument drawn from it is put in the form of a question, "Whom shall I fear?" A question which is its own answer.
The powers of darkness are not to be feared, for the Lord, our light, destroys them; and the damnation of hell is not to be dreaded by us, for the Lord is our salvation. This is a very different challenge from that of boastful Goliath, for it rests, not upon the conceited vigour of an arm of flesh, but upon the real power of the omnipotent I AM. "The Lord is the strength of my life." Here is a third glowing epithet, to show that the writer's hope was fastened with a threefold cord which could not be broken. We may well accumulate terms of praise where the Lord lavishes deeds of grace. Our life derives all its strength from God; and if He deigns to make us strong, we cannot be weakened by all the machinations of the adversary. "Of whom shall I be afraid?" The bold question looks into the future as well as the present. "If God be for us," who can be against us, either now or in time to come? (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
