If God had willed it, each of us might have entered heaven at the moment of conversion. It was not absolutely necessary for our preparation for immortality that we should tarry here. It is possible for a man to be taken to heaven, and to be found meet to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light, though he has but just believed in Jesus. It is true that our sanctification is a long and continued process, and we shall not be perfected till we lay aside our bodies and enter within the veil; but nevertheless, had the Lord so willed it, He might have changed us from imperfection to perfection, and have taken us to heaven at once.
Why then are we here? Would God keep His children out of paradise a single moment longer than was necessary? Why is the army of the living God still on the battle-field when one charge might give them the victory? Why are His children still wandering hither and thither through a maze, when a solitary word from His lips would bring them into the centre of their hopes in heaven? The answer is--they are here that they may "live unto the Lord," and may bring others to know His love. We remain on earth as sowers to scatter good seed; as ploughmen to break up the fallow ground; as heralds publishing salvation. We are here as the "salt of the earth," to be a blessing to the world. We are here to glorify Christ in our daily life. We are here as workers for Him, and as "workers together with Him." Let us see that our life answereth its end. Let us live earnest, useful, holy lives, to "the praise of the glory of His grace."
Meanwhile we long to be with Him, and daily sing-- "My heart is with Him on His throne, And ill can brook delay; Each moment listening for the voice, 'Rise up, and come away.'" (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")

Finally! Scalar Wave weaponry and technology explained and fully illustrated so a simple average person can understand! Ltc. Bearden, America's foremost expert in Russian Scalar Weaponry, writes the book we Americans must read at the lateness of our national hour. Bearden 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 brimstoneHow 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 - Hurricanes, tornadoes, weather control - tightly controlled by Scalar Interferometry towersHow the new "Energy-From-Vacuum" Electrical Systems works and how it threatens us
How lethal strikes with Scalar Electromagnetic Waves flies at Speed of Light and are totally unstoppable, striking with horrific disastersHow 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 diseaseHow 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.

* "Russia's Secret Weapon Designed To Defeat America" - Scalar Weapons Revealed! DVD Video
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.
"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 ..."

"Masonry ought forever to be abolished. It is wrong - essentially wrong - a seed of evil, which can never produce any good." (John Qunicy Adams, 6th President of the United States)
President Adams was a determined opponent of the Secret Society known as Freemasonry. Debate has long waged hot and heavy as to the true character of Masonry, but for Founding Fathers like President Adams, there was no question: Masonry was evil, could only produce evil, and was a danger to the live and health of America.
Adams was convinced Freemasonry was Luciferian, noxious, detrimental and highly evil.
All people -- both Masons and concerned citizens -- will find President Adam's warnings relevant and pertinent to today, because Masonry continues its leadership of the New World Order, as it deftly maneuvers nations of the world to accept the coming Masonic Christ.

We must come to that place where our personal worth, esteem, and significance is FIRST found in Jesus, our God and our Creator. Understanding that we are created in His image and likeness opens the door for our personal security and happiness, even in the face of unbelievable personal sorrow and tragedy.
What upholds us when we are seemingly forsaken by all others? Our very survival depends upon our determination to make Jesus our Rock during difficult times. We DO MATTER to Him, Who is not ashamed to identify Himself as our Brother.
Pastor Gill Belec has gone through trials and tribulations, the like of which would stagger the common Christian. Yet, Jesus delivered him and set him on firm and pleasant ground, after the trials had run their course. Cry with Pastor Belec, laugh with him, and catch his faith during most difficult times, realizing his faith can be yours, his Jesus is most definitely yours, and the Deliverance he experienced can also be yours.

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. "USA Today" -- a most Establishment news source -- set the record forever straight with an extensive article which confirms Cutting Edge teaching for the past 3 1/2 years, i.e., that Iraq did not have Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and never had them! White House propaganda aside, the President's own investigators admit that, not only did Iraq not have WMD when President Bush ordered his country invaded, but the country had destroyed its WMD program in 1991.
NEWS BRIEF: "Piecing together the story of the weapons that weren't", By Charles J. Hanley, The Associated Press, carried in USA Today, 9/2/2005
" 'Are we 85% done?' the CIA boss demanded. The arms hunters knew what he wanted to hear. "No!" they shouted back. "Let me hear it again!" They shouted again. The weapons are out there, Tenet insisted. Go find them. Veteran inspector Rod Barton couldn't believe his ears. "It was nonsense," the Australian biologist said of that February evening last year, when the then-chief of U.S. intelligence secretly flew to Baghdad and dropped in on the lakeside Perfume Palace, chandelier-hung home of the Iraq Survey Group.
" 'It wasn't that we didn't know the major answers', recalled Barton, whose account matched that of another key participant. 'Are there WMD in the country? We knew the answers'. In fact, David Kay, quitting as chief of the U.S. hunt for WMD, or weapons of mass destruction, had just delivered the answer to the world. The inspectors were 85% finished, Kay said, concluding: 'The weapons do not exist'."
Keep this fact in mind -- "The weapons do not exist." From the lips of President Bush's own chief arms investigator, David Kay. In fact, US intelligence learned before the war that all WMD programs had been abolished in 1991 -- from an Iraqi defector. Still, President Bush and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld ignored this truth, because they were busily churning out bold lies through their pet "intelligence service", the "Office of Special Plans" (Read all about this bogus intelligence agency in NEWS1890 and NEWS1890b).
Oh, yes, and no weapons were ever trucked in the middle of the night to Syria -- another post-invasion invention intended to deceive the guilable. Were the weapons actually in Syria, American elite forces could land inside Syria, seize the weapons and be gone before Syria could react. Syria is that much weaker than the United States. The bottom line is clear: Syria has no Iraqi WMD.
Now, let us return one more time to our featured article:
"The story of the weapons that weren't there, the prelude to war, was over, but a long post-mortem is still unfolding — of lingering questions in Washington, of revelations from investigations, leaks, first-person accounts. Some 52% of Americans believe the Bush administration deliberately misled them about the presence of banned arms in Iraq, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll taken in June." (Ibid.)
An article appeared later in the week which highlighted the sad fact that President Bush was informed by intelligence immediately after the attacks of 9/11 that there was no firm, provable link between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda. Yet, President Bush ignored this fact and created a huge lie stating that "firm evidence" did exist of such a linkage; in fact, the Bush Team created a spin-off lie, i.e., if we did not invade Iraq to take those WMD weapons away from Saddam, he would sooner or later give such WMD to the terrorists to use against American domestic targets.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush informed in 2001 of lack of Iraq-Qaeda ties", Tehran Times, 22 November 2005
"WASHINGTON (AFP) – U.S. President George W. Bush was informed 10 days after the September 11, 2001 attacks that U.S. intelligence had no proof of links between Iraq and this act of terror, The National Journal reported Tuesday. Citing government documents as well as past and present Bush administration officials, the magazine said the president was briefed on September 21, 2001 that evidence of cooperation between Iraq and the Al-Qaeda terror network was insufficient. Bush was also informed that there was some credible information about contacts between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda that showed that the Iraqi dictator had tried to establish surveillance over the group, according to the report."
"Saddam Hussein believed the radical Islamic network represented a threat for his secular regime."
This reality is the real reason there could have been no firm link between Saddam and Osama: Secular does not mix well with religious fanaticism, even when both sides share a common mortal enemy. President Bush and his entourage knew this fact, but boldly lied anyway.
II. The puppet Iraqi Government -- which owes its very birth and its continued existence to the American Military -- continued to strike out on an independent path, trying to show it is not completely controlled, and trying to build the kind of bridges to its Arab neighbors which might allow it to stay alive after the 2006 American pullout.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq leaders demand pullout timetable", Al-Jazeera News, 21 November 2005
"Iraqi leaders have put persistent differences to one side and agreed on their first joint statement, calling for a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country. Christian, Shia, Sunni and Kurdish leaders also on Monday demanded the release of prisoners and a programme for rebuilding Iraq's armed forces after talks in Cairo aimed at ending conflict between their communities and achieving national reconciliation. At the end of the three-day meeting sponsored by the Cairo-based Arab League, the Iraqi leaders called for the withdrawal of US and British forces from Iraq by immediately setting a timetable for gradually rebuilding Iraq's armed forces. They condemned attacks on Iraqi civilians, government institutions and oil installations and called for the release of all detainees held without trial."
Times have really changed when an Iraqi puppet government can "demand" an American troop withdrawal!
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraqi president on landmark Iran visit: First by an Iraqi head of state in nearly four decades", Khaleej Times Online, 22 November 2005
"TEHERAN — Iraqi President Jalal Talabani began a landmark visit to Iran yesterday, the first by an Iraqi head of state in nearly four decades, in a clear effort to win more help in battling the insurgency raging in his country. Iranian officials said Talabani was to spend three days in the Islamic republic for a series of high-level talks centred on security issues ... Ties between Iran and Iraq’s new authorities have been relatively close ... Talabani is scheduled to go into closed door talks with hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, top national security official Ali Larijani and Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki. Iranian media said he is also expected to meet supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei."
This spectacle is also unbelievable! The current Iraqi government is actually courting close relations with the very radical Iranian government which President Bush loves to hate! Once again, we see signs that Iran is winning the Iraq War over the United States. Some months ago, we posted an article to this effect, and encourage you to read it, for you will then better understand the news currently unfolding in this region.
NEWS2060 -- "IRAN WINNER OF IRAQI WAR? HOW COULD 'AXIS OF EVIL' NATION POSSIBLY ENGINEER DEFEAT OF MIGHTY USA?"
NEWS BRIEF: "Baghdad to open talks with Kuwait on border security and oil reservoirs", Gulf News, 22/11/2005
"Iraq is likely to name a new ambassador to Kuwait within weeks and the former foes have agreed to open talks on border security and disputed oil reservoirs ... Ministry undersecretary Mohammad Hamoud said an Iraqi team was in Kuwait seeking temporary premises for a diplomatic mission there following the restoration last year of diplomatic relations between the two Gulf states ... Hamoud also said the two sides had agreed to discuss border security issues, retention and maintenance of border posts and border oil reservoirs a reference to the Abdali oil field which straddles the Kuwait-Iraq border."
This Iraqi government is beginning to negotiate border issues and other mundane subjects with her neighbors, another sign she expects Coalition Forces to be gone in a relatively short time.
III. The possibility that officials of the Bush Administration might one day stand trial for War Crimes in Iraq seemed to take on additional weight this past week.
NEWS BRIEF: "Behind the phosphorus clouds are war crimes within war crimes within war crimes: More than 50,000 civilians remained in Fallujah when US forces attacked", The Guardian (London), November 22, 2005
" We now know the US also used thermobaric weapons in its assault on Fallujah, where up to 50,000 civilians remained ... there is hard evidence that white phosphorus was deployed as a weapon against combatants in Fallujah. As this column revealed last Tuesday, US infantry officers confessed that they had used it to flush out insurgents. A Pentagon spokesman told the BBC that white phosphorus 'was used as an incendiary weapon against enemy combatants'. He claimed 'it is not a chemical weapon. They are not outlawed or illegal'. This denial has been accepted by most of the mainstream media. UN conventions, the Times said, 'ban its use on civilian but not military targets'. But the word 'civilian' does not occur in the chemical weapons convention. The use of the toxic properties of a chemical as a weapon is illegal, whoever the target is."
Did you catch the last two sentences? It is so important to our understanding that we need to hear them again.
"... the word 'civilian' does not occur in the chemical weapons convention. The use of the toxic properties of a chemical as a weapon is illegal, whoever the target is."
In this segment, below, we will learn that The Pentagon knew beforehand that these weapons were illegal; in fact, one American official actually denied initially that the US Military even had these forbidden weapons in their arsenal!
"The Pentagon argues that white phosphorus burns people, rather than poisoning them, and is covered only by the protocol on incendiary weapons, which the US has not signed. But white phosphorus is both incendiary and toxic. The gas it produces attacks the mucous membranes, the eyes and the lungs ... The US army knows that its use as a weapon is illegal. In the Battle Book, published by the US Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, my correspondent David Traynier found the following sentence: 'It is against the law of land warfare to employ WP against personnel targets'."
What was the date at which The Pentagon admitted that such a weapon was illegal?
"Last night the blogger Gabriele Zamparini found a declassified document from the US department of defence, dated April 1991, and titled Possible use of phosphorus chemical."
The Pentagon knew in April, 1991, that the use of White Phosphorus as a weapon against any human target was illegal! Now, let us learn more of the contents of this April, 1991, document:
" "During the brutal crackdown that followed the Kurdish uprising', it alleges, 'Iraqi forces loyal to President Saddam may have possibly used white phosphorus (WP) chemical weapons against Kurdish rebels and the populace in Erbil ... and Dohuk provinces, Iraq. The WP chemical was delivered by artillery rounds and helicopter gunships ... These reports of possible WP chemical weapon attacks spread quickly ... hundreds of thousands of Kurds fled from these two areas'. The Pentagon is in no doubt, in other words, that white phosphorus is an illegal chemical weapon." (Ibid.)
In other words, American forces were guilty in Fallujah of the same type of "war crimes" of which we roundly condemned Saddam for committing!
Now, let us return to this featured article for another heavy revelation!
"... we shouldn't forget that the use of chemical weapons was a war crime within a war crime within a war crime. Both the invasion of Iraq and the assault on Fallujah were illegal acts of aggression. Before attacking the city, the marines stopped men 'of fighting age' from leaving. Many women and children stayed: the Guardian's correspondent estimated that between 30,000 and 50,000 civilians were left. The marines treated Fallujah as if its only inhabitants were fighters. They leveled thousands of buildings, illegally denied access to the Iraqi Red Crescent and, according to the UN's special rapporteur, used 'hunger and deprivation of water as a weapon of war against the civilian population'."
"An assault weapon the marines were using had been armed with warheads containing 'about 35% thermobaric novel explosive (NE) and 65% standard high explosive'. They deployed it 'to cause the roof to collapse and crush the insurgents fortified inside interior rooms'. It was used repeatedly: 'The expenditure of explosives clearing houses was enormous' ... The marines can scarcely deny that they know what these weapons do."
"Thermobaric, or 'fuel-air' weapons, it says, form a cloud of volatile gases or finely powdered explosives. 'This cloud is then ignited and the subsequent fireball sears the surrounding area while consuming the oxygen in this area. The lack of oxygen creates an enormous overpressure ... Personnel under the cloud are literally crushed to death. Outside the cloud area, the blast wave travels at some 3,000 metres per second ... As a result, a fuel-air explosive can have the effect of a tactical nuclear weapon without residual radiation ... Those personnel caught directly under the aerosol cloud will die from the flame or overpressure. For those on the periphery of the strike, the injuries can be severe. Burns, broken bones, contusions from flying debris and blindness may result. Further, the crushing injuries from the overpressure can create air embolism within blood vessels, concussions, multiple internal hemorrhages in the liver and spleen, collapsed lungs, rupture of the eardrums and displacement of the eyes from their sockets'. It is hard to see how you could use these weapons in Fallujah without killing civilians." (Ibid.)
Knowing now that these White Phosphorus weapons were so created as to form a "fuel- air bomb" clears the whole matter up for me. Now I understand why so many civilians were killed and why virtually every building in Fallujah was either destroyed or damaged! Fuel-Air Bombs are one of the most devastating weapons in the modern arsenal, and were originally designed to kill massive numbers of concentrated enemy troops. This revelation that they were used against civilian targets in Fallujah is devastating.
The revelation that the banned White Phosphorus chemical was combined with Thermobaric capability so that this illegal chemical weapon was greatly enhanced in its killing capability is staggering information!
Therefore, American forces used illegal weapons in a war which was illegal from the very beginning. The Bush Administration thus has compounded its crimes: Not only did Bush launch a war based on bold lies and exaggerations, but it has used weapons against civilians which are forbidden by American law and international convention, and its use of White Phosphorus was combined with "fuel-air" capability so our use of this weapon against civilians was greater than Saddam's use against the Kurds!
Of course, the largest War Crime committed against the Iraqi people is the continued explosion of Depleted Uranium munitions. Within 20 years, enough civilians will die that the survivors will attempt to flee the country. The Bush Administration's war using D.U. weaponry has doomed the entire 25 million people of Iraq.
The last paragraph of this Guardian article sums up the matter convincingly:
"This looks to me like a convincing explanation of the damage done to Fallujah, a city in which between 30,000 and 50,000 civilians might have been taking refuge. It could also explain the civilian casualties shown in the film. So the question has now widened: is there any crime the coalition forces have not committed in Iraq?" (Ibid.)
One can only shake their head in wonder as to how America could be committing these types of war crimes. The bottom line answer is that these actions are fulfilling God's End of the Age final judgment against Iraq (Ancient Babylon). We wrote an article explaining this reality within weeks of our invasion. Please take a moment to read it, for you will see the prophesied barbarism of the attacking armies coming against Babylon at the End of the Age.
NEWS1804 -- "IS THE U.S. FULFILLING JUDGMENTS AGAINST IRAQ (BABYLON) FOUND IN ISAIAH 13?"
While it does seem true that America is acting so terribly against Iraqi civilians because our troops are fulfilling the final End of the Age prophecy against Ancient Babylon, God will not let either our current leaders nor American citizens off the hook on Judgment Day. One of the overriding principles of God's repeated judgments against Israel in the Old Testament is that, after He had finished his judgment, He would then turn on the foreign nation He had raised up to afflict Israel, and destroy that nation.
America's judgment is thus further set in concrete.
IV. An editorial in the prestigious Asia Times put forth the question a lot of people have been asking lately: Is is possible the Bush Administration might stage a terrorist attack, blame it on Iran, and then use that incident as an excuse to attack that country in order to force a "Regime Change"?
NEWS BRIEF: ""Wag the Dog" Movie: Crisis scenarios for Bush - Could Rove - today's real-life version of Conrad Brean - already be cooking up a "wag the dog" scenario?", Asia Times, November 17, 2005
" In the 1998 movie Wag the Dog, White House spinmeister Conrad Brean seeks to deflect public attention from a brewing scandal over an alleged sexual encounter in the White House between the president and an all-too-young Girl Scout-type by concocting an international crisis. Advised by a Hollywood producer (played with delicious perversity by Dustin Hoffman), Brean "leaks" a fraudulent report that Albania has acquired a suitcase-sized nuclear device and is seeking to smuggle it into the United States. This obviously justifies an attention-diverting military reprisal. The media falls for the false report (sound familiar?) and all discussion of the president's sex scandal disappears from view or, as Brean would have it, the 'tail' of a manufactured crisis wags the 'dog' of national politics."
"As Brean explains all this to the White House staff in the film, American presidents have often sought to distract attention from their political woes at home by heating up a war or crisis somewhere else. Now that the current occupant of the White House is facing roiling political scandals of his own, it stands to reason that he, too, or his embattled adviser, Karl Rove, (not to speak of his besieged Vice President, Dick Cheney) may be thinking along such lines. Could Rove - today's real-life version of Conrad Brean - already be cooking up a 'wag the dog' scenario? Only those with access to the innermost sanctum of President George W Bush's White House can know for sure, but it is hardly an improbable thought, given that they have done so in the past."
"It bears repeating that this administration - more than any other in recent times - has employed deception and innuendo to mold public opinion and advance its political agenda ... . Why then would he and his handlers shrink from exaggerating or distorting new intelligence about other hostile powers, and then using such distortions to ignite an international crisis? Add to this the fact that a rising level of belligerence is already detectable in the statements of top administration officials regarding potential adversaries in the Middle East and Asia ... As Wag the Dog suggested, war itself is not the only way to distract public attention from the president's domestic woes. An atmosphere of crisis in which rumors of war or preparations for war come to overshadow all else might well do the trick - and administration officials don't need fresh armies to accomplish this, only plausible scenarios for the escalation of existing foreign troubles. These, unfortunately, are all too easy to find. What then are the most promising scenarios at hand for such a purpose? Many such scenarios might be envisioned, but the most credible ones - barring a major new terrorist attack on the United States - would entail a military showdown with Syria, Iran or North Korea."
We have noted numerous times in the past that officials of the Bush Administration have been gravely threatening Iran and Syria since the Summer, 2003, only to back down each time. Many military reasons abound for this repeated "back-down", but now you know the reason American leaders continue their verbal threatening:
"An atmosphere of crisis in which rumors of war or preparations for war come to overshadow all else might well do the trick."
"Rumors of War"! (Matthew 24:6 being fulfilled in your Daily News!)
Alex Jones noted the especially shrill crescendo of verbal attacks against Iran, causing him to ask the logical question, "Is an attack on Iran imminent"?
NEWS BRIEF: "The Staged Terror Is Set (For War With Iran): Newt Gingrich said, 'It is time to seek Regime Change in Iran' -- staged terror attack possible to justify attack on Iran", InfoWars, November 23, 2005
"The latest globalist mouthpiece to jump on the Iran nuke threat bandwagon is Newt Gingrich. A regular attendee of the annual Summer camp at the Bohemian Grove, and long term CFR member, Gingrich has commented that the Iran threat is like that of Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Gingrich went on to state that Tehran could be planning for a preemptive nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack on America that would turn a third or more of the country 'back to a 19th century level of development'."
"He said the 'extraordinary challenge that the current regime in Iran poses to the safety of the United States' requires 'extraordinary measures to meet it'."
I find it interesting that Gingrich would single out a most advanced capability of nuclear weapons, i.e., the "nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack" as a threat from Iran. This capability is an advanced nuclear technology, and not one which should be expected of a nation still 1-3 years from getting their first nuclear warheads, which is what our propaganda machine is saying about Iran. Therefore, a person can only believe one of two things is possible from Gingrich's remark:
1) Either Iran already possesses atomic warhead capability (which Cutting Edge has been pointing out since June, 2002 -- NEWS1660.) If Iran has, indeed, possessed nuclear weaponry since before June, 2002, then it is conceivable she has advanced to the point where she could develop and deploy nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapons.
However, even if Iran did develop such advanced weaponry, she would have to also possess the intercontinental ballistic missile capability which could deliver the nuclear warhead over an American city. No one has even suggested that Iran also has such ballistic missile capability -- not even our wildly suggestive propaganda machine is saying this.
Therefore, this brings us to possibility #2.
2) Gingrich is subtly suggesting that Russia is the real military power behind Iran. If this is the case -- as we have been saying for years -- then Gingrich must know that the real threat of an "electromagnetic pulse attack" comes from Russia's Scalar Weapons technology, not from an obsolete nuclear warhead fitted on an obsolete ballistic missile. (To understand how both ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads have been rendered obsolete by Russian Scalar Technology, read our newest book, "Oblivion: America At The Brink".
This capability is one of the most threatening aspects of Scalar Wave technology! The electromagnetic pulse!
LTC Bearden lists this part of the Scalar Wave Warfare threat on page 101 of his new book, "Oblivion: America At The Brink". Scalar can deliver nuclear blasts at the speed of light and can simultaneously deliver a nuclear-sized explosion, without the residual radiation. And, they can deliver the dreaded "electromagnetic pulse attack" which would instantly throw America back 100 years!
Therefore, it seems highly significant that our Establishment is now acknowledging this threat; but what is curious is that Gingrich is speaking here of this kind of threat from Iran, not Russia! Can Gingrich be warning of an "electromagnetic pulse attack" from Iran, naming that country rather than Russia? That would certainly be more diplomatic, and it would let Russia know that we know of the threat. However, protecting all our electrical systems against such an attack is quite another thing. We are not prepared for such a technological assault.
Therefore, we are back to where Cutting Edge has always been: Russia's military backing of Iran. Since this is the true situation, and since Russia's Scalar Weaponry is greater than anything the US possesses, you now know why the Bush Administration has been threatening Iran with attack and/or invasion to produce a "Regime Change" since June, 2003, but has backed down each time.
We posted a recent article demonstrating the kind of non-Scalar military capability with which Russia has now activated in Iran and is rushing to get activated in Syria. Please take a moment to read this sobering article: NEWS2003, "Russian Checkmate In The Middle East".
Now you know why Iranian leaders are so confident in their ability to stand up to American and Israeli pressure that the new hardline President has been issuing demands of his own, and showing extreme contempt for the American capability.
V. Israeli Prime Minister Sharon took the bold step last week to create his own political party, which threatens to shove both the "Conservative" Likud Party and the "Liberal" Labor Party to the sidelines and thoroughly destroy the many splinter parties. This week, the purpose of this new party became clear: to provide Sharon with the stability in government which will allow him to take the exceedingly difficult step of withdrawing up to 80,000 Jewish settlers from the West Bank -- exactly the point we made in our recent article NEWS2091.
NEWS BRIEF: "Opinion polls show Sharon's new centrist movement crushing Likud party", Canada.com, November 25, 2005
"JERUSALEM (AP) - Ariel Sharon's new party would sweep a March 28 election and crush the hard line Likud party he abandoned, allowing the Israeli prime minister to form a coalition with the dovish Labour party, according to opinion polls published Friday. Sharon's dramatic decision earlier this week to quit the Likud party he helped found three decades ago rocked Israel's political establishment, leaving some of his main rivals - including former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu - gasping for breath and picking up the pieces of the fractured hard line movement."
The fact of the matter is that the Illuminati hates any person who is "hardline" or a "fanatic" about anything. Whether the issue is religion or politics, the Illuminati hates anyone totally sold out to a cause to the point he will refuse to compromise. During the Unilateral Withdrawal from The Gaza Strip, Likud hardliners nearly derailed Sharon's policies. Time and time again, Sharon had to pause in his plans in order to defeat a pesky rebellion on his Far Right, from hardline Likud members.
Now, Sharon's new party seems poised to seize the entire broad spectrum of the political middle ground. Hardliners on the right (Likud and other religious splinter groups) and on the left (primarily Labor) may now be neutralized. Early indications seem strong that Sharon's new "gamble" is paying off.
"Friday's opinion polls indicate that Israel's public backs Sharon and his September withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, and would support future pullouts and peacemaking ... The opinion polls and the poor attendance Thursday at the Likud Central Committee's first meeting since Sharon's departure - only about 500 of the party's 3,000 registered committee members attended - show the party that has dominated Israeli politics for three decades could pay a hefty price for sticking to its hawkish policy ... A Teleseker poll in the Maariv daily had Sharon's Forward party winning 34 seats in Israel's 120-member parliament, four more than he had in a poll published Tuesday." (Ibid.)
With four tumultuous months to go before the new election, Sharon needs relative quiet from the Palestinians and Hizbullah to keep his hefty lead. If there is a drop in terrorist incidents, Israelis could troop to the polls in March serene in their belief that Sharon's policies are working -- that unilateral withdrawal will create the kind of peaceful coexistence for the Jewish state which so many Israelis desperately seek.
And, of course, should opinion polls go against Sharon, he can always bank on the fact that his major likely opponent -- Peretz of the Labor Party -- is just as supportive of Oslo and its Unilateral Withdrawal plan as is Sharon (Read NEWS2090 for full details).
Remember, the Illuminati always controls the election process through one of a number of techniques:
1) Outright control of counting the votes. That old Russian politician who never lost an election said it best: "Whoever votes counts for nothing; but he who counts the votes counts for everything" (Josef Stalin, Soviet Union). In this era of electronic voting, control over the vote counting has never been easier. (NEWS1976)
2) Controlling all major candidates of all major parties. In this regard, the Illuminati controls the leadership of the three major parties contending for power right now in Israel:
A) Ariel Sharon -- has shown himself worthy to be called an "Illuminist leader", as he has sold out his core constituency so he could pursue the plan of the Elite
B) Benjamin Netanyahu -- This former Prime Minister is said to be the likely candidate for Likud. In his years as Prime Minister, Netanyahu showed himself to be firmly under the control of the Illuminati. He met so often with Henry Kissinger, even undiscerning people began to take notice.
C) Amir Peretz -- As we noted in NEWS2090 Peretz immediately publicly signaled his support for Oslo within hours of winning the Labor election. This support for Oslo branded him Illuminist.
Therefore, no matter who is declared winner of the March, 2006, election, the plan of the Great White Brotherhood will go forward. What is that plan? To seize control of the Temple Mount so that global Freemasonry can rebuild King Solomon's Temple (NEWS1643), and crown their Masonic Christ as the New Messiah of Israel. But, to accomplish this feat, the Islamic Dome of the Rock must be destroyed. And, that means the Palestinians, Syrians, Jordanians and Egyptians must be crushed.
To accomplish this part of the Plan, all Jewish settlers now living in the Israeli territories must be "moved out of harm's way". Read the following articles for your understanding of this most important issue: NEWS1422, NEWS1620, NEWS2058, and NEWS2082 for full details.
The Gaza Strip was a first step, but the larger, and much more difficult, West Bank remains.
NEWS BRIEF: "Israelis: Sharon will uproot more settlements", Jerusalem Newswire, By Ryan Jones, November 20th, 2005
"A majority of Israelis continues to believe Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is misleading the public and will evacuate many of the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria as he did the Jews of Gaza, assuming he is still leading the nation after upcoming early elections. Fully 70 percent of Israelis see another pullout looming involving some 80,000 Jewish residents of Israel's biblical heartland, according to a recent poll conducted by the One Nation movement. After uprooting Jewish Gaza, Sharon repeatedly vowed he would not take such a step again for the sake of “peace” with the Arabs, and insisted the settlements in Judea and Samaria were secure.
"But after Sharon had likewise, during his previous election campaign, sworn that the Gaza communities were as permanent as Tel Aviv, few are buying his current assurances ... Observers fear Sharon's current political maneuvering to unshackle himself from the Likud Party's Land of Israel platform ahead of general elections portends his intention to implement further dramatic unilateral steps. Advisers to the prime minister told The Jerusalem Post last week that Sharon believes he must establish Israel's final borders before his time is up."
The only real question is whether the settlers will fight the forced evacuation this time, in stark contrast to the meekness displayed during the Gaza evacuation.
NEWS BRIEF: "Settlers see next battlefield in West Bank", The Washington Times, November 24, 2005
"AMONA OUTPOST, West Bank -- A row of nine uninhabited houses on a windy
hilltop could be the site of the next struggle over the future of Israel's
West Bank settlements. Complying with a Supreme Court directive, Defense Minister
Shaul Mofaz has ordered Amona's houses demolished by the end of January, setting
up a possible violent confrontation with Jewish settlers who consider the
move an extension of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's evacuation of Gaza settlements.
' We call it disengagement, part two. The fate of these permanent houses should be the same as any house in Ofra', said Yitzhak Meir, mayor of Amona's parent settlement of Ofra ... 'I hope we won't need to and that the army won't go through with it, but I have no doubt that the struggle won't be like it was in Gush Katif," where resistance to Israeli soldiers was less violent than anticipated. 'People don't feel comfortable with the way the struggle ended in Gush Katif ...' "
"Under the U.S.-sponsored 'road map' peace plan, Israel is committed to dismantling the settlements created since Mr. Sharon came into office. 'The American administration has made it very clear that this is the next stage', said Shmuel Bar, a Middle East expert at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center."
Once Sharon successfully banishes his political foes in this upcoming election -- with his new political party -- the West Bank forced withdrawal will commence. At that moment, Sharon should have overwhelming political advantage over his opponents, especially since Netanyahu and Peretz are leading the opposition. The West Bank withdrawal may not be as smooth and as lacking in physical difficulty as was Gaza, but no one can doubt any longer that it will ultimately be successful.
Such an annihilation will trigger the Middle East regional war, which will trigger the World War III the Illuminati needs to stage their Masonic Christ (Antichrist).
Don't you agree the stakes are huge?
VII. In a turn of events many will find surprising, the new, militant, hardliner Iranian President reveals that the most important factor to him is the appearance of the Messiah for which Islam is awaiting! Not politics, but prophetic religion, occupies this newly-elected president's mind as he formulates his nation's policies.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran president paves the way for arabs' imam return", Persian Journal, By Paul Hughes, Associated Press, November 17, 2005
" His call for the destruction of Israel may have grabbed headlines abroad, but it is President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's devotion to a mystical religious figure that is arousing greater interest inside Iran. In a keynote speech on Wednesday to senior clerics, Ahmadinejad spoke of his strong belief in the second coming of Shi'ite Muslims' 'hidden' 12th Imam. According to Shi'ite Muslim teaching, Abul-Qassem Mohammad, the 12th leader whom Shi'ites consider descended from the Prophet Mohammed, disappeared in 941 but will return at the end of time to lead an era of Islamic justice.
" 'Our revolution's main mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi," Ahmadinejad said in the speech to Friday Prayers leaders from across the country ... 'Therefore, Iran should become a powerful, developed and model Islamic society' ... Ahmadinejad refers to the return of the 12th Imam, also known as the Mahdi, in almost all his major speeches since he took office in August."
Most people would consider that a "hardliner" Muslim like President Ahmadinejad would be concerned with secular matters, or at least religious matters not related to some "mythically religious" Messianic expectation. Yet, it appears that this is exactly his frame of mind. He seems obsessed with the coming Messianic figure for all of Islam, the "12th Imam, the Mahdi".
Such Messianic expectations might just make this Iranian president feel invincible, which is the way he has been acting ever since taking office. I wonder which weighs more heavily in his mind: 1) Russian Scalar Weaponry superiority over anything the West has to offer, a technology placed behind Iran; 2) His belief in the coming of the Mahdi.
However, one factor also has occurred here. Does this "hardline" Iranian President believe that the reason Russia has achieved such a superiority over the West in weapons systems is because the imminent Mahdi has given such superiority to the Russians?
If this latter supposition is correct, we have a combination of military superiority and Messianic expectations which could plunge the world into the greatest conflagration the world has ever seen, the kind of terrific world war which could produce Antichrist.
NEWS BRIEF: "Geologist receives threatening messages after `60 Minutes' segment", St. Louis Dispatch, carried in Grand Forks Herald.com, November 22, 2005
"ST. LOUIS - St. Louis University geologist Timothy Kusky may want to stay put for Mardi Gras. Interviewed Sunday on the CBS program '60 Minutes', Kusky said New Orleans is sinking and should be rebuilt elsewhere ... In the Sunday program, Kusky was quoted as saying New Orleans in 90 years will be a 'fishbowl' surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico 'because New Orleans is going to be 15 to 18 feet below sea level, sitting off the coast of North America surrounded by a 50- to 100-foot-tall levee system to protect the city' ... Kusky stands by his comments. 'The New Orleans and Louisiana governments are really opposed to hearing this - they think that hearing that the city is still sinking will mean they will get billions less in reconstruction money', Kusky said in an e-mail."
"There are many uncertainties to the issue - different sinking rates for different periods of time for different parts of Louisiana. But University of Missouri at Rolla geological engineer J. David Rogers says there's no uncertainty that it's happening: 'It's sinking like crazy. There's nobody in the profession that's unaware of that. There's no debate over that', he said."
"New Orleans sinks for several reasons. The main reason is that much of the city is built on swampy, peaty material that compacts as it is drained. The weight of levee systems also adds to the sinking, as does the weight of thousands of years of Mississippi River silt. Now, levees keep that silt out and send it out the mouth of the Mississippi. There isn't any new stuff to wash over Louisiana and keep pace with the sinking."
"Parts of New Orleans are already 10 feet below sea level. Kusky said he based his comments on many studies, including the work of Virginia Burkett of the U.S. Geological Survey, which shows New Orleans sinking five more feet below sea level by 2100 (including a rise in sea level). Kusky said other studies have shown that every year a Louisiana coastal area about half the size of St. Louis disappears, which explains his 'fishbowl' comment."
We are seeing the beginning of a "Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan" which will be waged to convince most Americans that New Orleans should not be rebuilt, either to its original glory or even on the original land. This call from St. Louis University geologist Timothy Kusky represents the first step, where a recognized authority speaking from a "Respected" platform proposes a controversial subject.
Kusky's comments are Step One. (To understand the complete "Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan", please take a moment to read: NEWS1055).
Now, let us briefly go to another article depicting the true situation in New Orleans.
NEWS BRIEF: "TIME MAGAZINE REVEALS: New Orleans, It's Worse Than You Think", Drudge Report, Sun Nov 20 2005 09:01:52 ET
"They're still finding bodies 13 weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit-30 in the past month-raising the death toll to 1,053 in Louisiana, TIME's Cathy Booth-Thomas reports from New Orleans. The looters are still working too, brazenly taking their haul in daylight. But at night darkness falls, and it's quiet. It's spooky out there. There's no life, says cardiologist Pat Breaux, who lives near Pontchartrain with only a handful of neighbors. The destruction, says Breaux, head of the Orleans Parish Medical Society, depresses people. Suicides are up citywide, he say, although no one has a handle on the exact number."
Did you catch how desperate the situation is in New Orleans right now?
* "Looters are still working too, brazenly taking their haul in daylight"
* 'At night darkness falls, and it's quiet. It's spooky out there."
* "There's no life"
* "The destruction depresses people. Sucides are up citywide"
The Federal Government is part of the problem, not part of the solution:
"Delays and squabbles in the recovery efforts mean that Congress's $62.3 billion largesse has mostly gone unspent. More than half-$37.5 billion-is sitting in FEMA's account, waiting for a purpose. Under fire for being slow to respond, the Bush Administration had rushed two emergency supplemental bills to Congress with little thought about how the money would be spent and how fast. Now FEMA is awash in money, says a Democratic appropriations aide. Of the nearly $25 billion assigned to projects, checks totaling only about $6.2 billion have been cashed. As a result, a third supplemental-funding bill sent to Congress suggests taking back $2.3 billion in aid." (Ibid.)
Then, we learn that the numbers of dead may be greatly understated.
NEWS BRIEF: "Corpses remain amid the rubble of wrecked New Orleans", Terra Daily News, November 20, 2005
"Trapped in attics and collapsed buildings, many of the dead of New Orleans remain undiscovered nearly three months after Hurricane Katrina struck, and weeks after flood waters were pumped out of the lowest lying areas. The official door-to-door search ended October 3 with a death toll of 972. Since then, at least 107 more bodies have been found. Some by officials, some by horror-struck friends and family members, some even by insurance inspectors. Officials refuse to speculate on how many bodies could still be out there, though do expect that more will be discovered when another area of the hardest-hit Ninth Ward is reopened on December 1."
" 'Homes are moved off their foundations. The stairs are there leading to nothing and then the house is over there. It's like the Wizard of Oz. You expect to see a couple of legs sticking out from where the house landed', she said ... For New Orleans residents returning to homes that weren't empty, the prospects are more grim. The official military door-to-door search ended on Oct. 3, but much of the Ninth Ward remains to be searched. State officials expect that many of the bodies remaining to be found will be discovered by family members. This stands in stark contrast to the clean-up the World Trade Center site after the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Official clean-up lasted eight and a half months and totaled an estimated 3.1 million hours of labor."
"People who find bodies are expected to report them to regular city emergency response services through 911 or to call the coroner's office. Bodies are taken to the temporary morgue located at the Convention Center and are then transferred to a federally run morgue set up in St. Gabriel, Louisiana. The St. Gabriel morgue is having its own difficulties handling the flood of bodies. Many families have complained of incomplete and inaccurate death reports. Also, more than 300 bodies remain unidentified. No DNA testing has been completed on any of those bodies, said Health and Hospitals spokesman Johannsen, although many samples have been taken."
New Orleans is a mess right now, in just about as many ways as you can count.
NEWS BRIEF: "Cloning scientist resigns in disgrace", NZ Herald, 25.11.05
"The scientist who cloned the world's first human embryo yesterday resigned in disgrace from an international body after admitting that he lied about the source of the eggs used in his experiments. Professor Woo-Suk Hwang of Seoul National University in South Korea apologised for repeatedly denying that some of the eggs had come from junior members of his own research team. He said he was sorry for making misleading statements when questioned about whether the eggs had been procured unethically from young female colleagues.
"Professor Hwang had been feted around the world when in February 2004 he announced that his team has cloned the first human embryo with a view to developing a new source of stem cells. However, rumours later emerged that some of the eggs from the 16 volunteer donors came from his colleagues which, although not illegal, is considered unethical because the women have felt under pressure to cooperate. Professor Hwang also said that no money had changed hands with the donors but it emerged this week that a colleague had in fact paid the equivalent of about £1,000 each to some of the women. "
How such an unethical program as human cloning could ever undergo an "ethical debate" is beyond me. However, just such a "debate" erupted in news outlets all over the world. The lead scientist had pressured female colleagues to donate some of their eggs, and the good doctor admitted to paying them at least some money, even though he had originally denied doing so.
Is there a hidden reason for this sudden debate over "ethics"?
Will the undiscerning person believe, after reading these stories about "ethics" not being followed in the original research, that the cloning program itself is inherently ethical?
I believe that is the reason for this "tempest in a teapot".

Our Redeemer's glorious cry of "It is finished," was the death-knell of all the adversaries of His people, the breaking of "the arrows of the bow, the shield and the sword and the battle." Behold the hero of Golgotha using His cross as an anvil, and His woes as a hammer, dashing to shivers bundle after bundle of our sins, those poisoned "arrows of the bow"; trampling on every indictment, and destroying every accusation. What glorious blows the mighty Breaker gives with a hammer far more ponderous than the fabled weapon of Thor!
How the diabolical darts fly to fragments, and the infernal bucklers are broken like potters' vessels! Behold, He draws from its sheath of hellish workmanship the dread sword of Satanic power! He snaps it across His knee, as a man breaks the dry wood of a fagot, and casts it into the fire. Beloved, no sin of a believer can now be an arrow mortally to wound him, no condemnation can now be a sword to kill him, for the punishment of our sin was borne by Christ, a full atonement was made for all our iniquities by our blessed Substitute and Surety.
Who now accuseth? Who now condemneth? Christ hath died, yea rather, hath risen again. Jesus has emptied the quivers of hell, has quenched every fiery dart, and broken off the head of every arrow of wrath; the ground is strewn with the splinters and relics of the weapons of hell's warfare, which are only visible to us to remind us of our former danger, and of our great deliverance. Sin hath no more dominion over us. Jesus has made an end of it, and put it away for ever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end. Talk ye of all the wondrous works of the Lord, ye who make mention of His name, keep not silence, neither by day, nor when the sun goeth to his rest. Bless the Lord, O my soul. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"; emphasis added)
