---------- Inspiration For the Week-------"If we walk in the light, as He is in the light." John 1:7
As He is in the light! Can we ever attain to this? Shall we ever be able to walk as clearly in the light as He is whom we call "Our Father," of whom it is written, "God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all"? Certainly, this is the model which it set before us, for the Saviour Himself said, "Be ye perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect"; and although we may feel that we can never rival the perfection of God, yet we are to seek after it, and never to be satisfied until we attain to it. The youthful artist, as he grasps his early pencil, can hardly hope to equal Raphael or Michael Angelo, but still, if he did not have a noble beau ideal before his mind, he would only attain to something very mean and ordinary. But what is meant by the expression that the Christian is to walk in light as God is in the light? We conceive it to import likeness, but not degree. We are as truly in the light, we are as heartily in the light, we are as sincerely in the light, as honestly in the light, though we cannot be there in the same measure. I cannot dwell in the sun, it is too bright a place for my residence, but I can walk in the light of the sun; and so, though I cannot attain to that perfection of purity and truth which belongs to the Lord of hosts by nature as the infinitely good, yet I can set the Lord always before me, and strive, by the help of the indwelling Spirit, after conformity to His image. That famous old commentator, John Trapp, says, "We may be in the light as God is in the light for quality, but not for equality." We are to have the same light, and are as truly to have it and walk in it as God does, though, as for equality with God in His holiness and purity, that must be left until we cross the Jordan and enter into the perfection of the Most High. Mark that the blessings of sacred fellowship and perfect cleansing are bound up with walking in the light. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
---------- Resource Update ----------
UPDATE: Our new DVD, "Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings" is going to be slightly delayed, until either the first or the second week of January. A bad bought of flu swept through Adullum Films last week, causing the entire week to be lost. We thank all who bought ahead of time through our Pre-Publication Sale, for those monies helped immensely in raising the last of the monies needed to bring the video to fruition.
Please be in much prayer for this video project, because the quality of the video, plus the quality of the script-writing, may be opening doors wide to distribution we had never considered when we started this project. We believe the History Channel will be interested in this video, plus video stores and even mass market retail stores.
Pray that the Holy Spirit will cause a wide distribution so people can finally know the truth -- the whole truth -- about the founding of America. Cutting Edge is firmly of the opinion that the major reason people cannot see the truth of their leaders today is because they do not know the whole truth about the creation of our country and its Founding Fathers.
This video series -- Volumes One through Four -- are designed to change that thinking. Please pray.

Just in time for your TV and movie watching over the Holidays! Most people have no idea how they are being manipulated through these mediums they watch every single day -- they and their children!
Significant upgrade over #1. This is a 3-DVD set, whereas #1 was only one DVD. Much more material, many more examples -- "And the whole earth went after the Beast in amazement and admiration ... they also praised and worshipped the Beast..." (Rev 13:3,4)
How can everyone on earth be convinced to worship the Beast in "amazement and admiration"? The answer is "Subliminal Seduction", a Mind Control art whose roots are deeply embedded in Satanism and Witchcraft!
If an average person watches 4 1/2 hours of TV daily and is exposed to 1,000 hours of commercials, their minds are being molded so they will "rush after the Beast".
People find it difficult to believe that Subliminal techniques are being used in Mass Media today because they incorrectly believe that Congress outlawed the practice in the 1950's.
"Subliminal Seduction" will not only open your eyes to how you are being manipulated, but will enable you to live in the most occult-inspired times in world history. Don't let the devil seduce you! fight back by getting equipped with the truth today. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1252
Proves Presidents Bush and Clinton, plus officials like Henry Kissinger and Colin Powell, are Satanists!
Alex Jones presents his newest film, "The Order of Death", an amazing and horrifying look into the rites and rituals of the modern day descendents of Babylonian mystery cults. "Dark Secrets: Inside the Bohemian Grove" documented the first ever hidden camera incursion into the Grove and the bizarre pagan ritual, the Cremation of Care, practiced by its members, all men, including both Presidents Bush, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Colin Powell, and Henry Kissenger to name but a few.
"The Order of Death" picks up where "Dark Secrets" leaves off. This new work exposes the connections between the Bohemian Club and Skull and Bones and other occult secret societies. Jones explores the roots of the Grove and its links to occult networks dating back to ancient Egypt and Babylon.
his new film delves deeply into the history of the Grove where powerful men make decisions that affect the world but are completely hidden from public scrutiny. "The Order of Death" details how the Grove has been the backdrop for some of the most earth shattering events in human history including the development of the Starwars program and the Manhattan Project.
"The Order of Death" also features never before seen footage captured by a daring former Grove employee including an astounding look inside the owl worshiped at the Cremation of Care ritual.
Note: "Cremation of Care" is a know Illuminist Satanic ritual; therefore, Presidents Bush and Clinton and all other American leaders participating in Bohemian Grove are proven to be Satanic! -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1249
In this eye-opening book you will see graphic and awesome colored illustrations of the seal, trumpet, and vial judgments from the book of Revelation. These illustrations include: the bottomless pit, lake of fire, demons, cataclysmic earthquakes, killer asteroids, and horrifying supernatural phenomena that boggle the mind. Other fascinating subjects include: UFO's, extraterrestrials, 666, micro-chip implants, witchcraft and Harry Potter, Euro-dollar, United Nations, International Criminal Court, Global Spy Systems, the Red Heifer of Numbers 19, Hate Crimes, biometric positive identification, the rebuilding of the Tribulation Temple in Jerusalem, and much more.
Your life will likely never be the same after reading "The Great Tribulation."
Modern Fundamental Bible Scholars are united on the doctrine that Antichrist will come from a "Revived Roman Empire". Most assume that means he will come from Western Europe -- which is the Western "leg" of the Ancient Roman Empire.
When studying prophecies concerning the AntiChrist, we should remember that the Roman Empire had an eastern leg that, in fact, survived the western leg by a thousand years!
There may be far more relevance to Iraq and the mid-east region than is commonly recognized in most books and articles on end-time prophecy. All of us tend to equate the Roman Empire with Western Europe. However, we may have been subject to myopia by overlooking an important fact. The Roman Empire had an eastern leg. Could Antichrist come from that Eastern portion?
While Cutting Edge does not entirely subscribe to this possibility, we do recognize that Missler has done some very strong and thorough Biblical Exegesis to arrive at this possible conclusion. We also continue to disagree with Missler on his politics. But, this DVD is thought-provoking!
As America nears judgment for her many sins, Christians are asking why she is not mentioned in prophecy. Mr. Coombes painstakingly examines Revelation 17 and 18 and relevant Old Testament texts to show that America is likely the nation destroyed in these judgments of God.
Cutting Edge has long taught that America is most certainly the Economic Babylon of Rev 18; but we have been surprised, as you certainly shall be, of Mr. Coombes' research concerning Revelation 17 being America.
Given the lateness of the prophetic hour, these two books are sadly needed. Volume 1 is a primary exposition of Revelation plus Old Testament texts, and is more exegetical and analytical in nature. Volume 2 reviews American history, showing our Founding Fathers as the true Illuminists they were, showing that our true national foundation was not Christian, defines the Illuminati, and takes you right up to this modern era to see how the global plan is working to its soon completion
Two books for reading on one CDROM, for only $24.99. Volume 1 is 225 pages, while Volume 2 is 388 pages long
Fully footnoted with many appendexes for further study -- Two books for the price of One
Thanks to the incredible revelations in this amazing book, you can discover the Illuminati's innermost secrets. You can identify the members of the Illuminati and unravel their astonishing plan to control and manipulate all mankind. You can crack the Illuminati code. To aid you, this book contains over 1,000 photographs.
You'll see with your own eyes the world's leading politicians and celebrities—including America's richest and most powerful—caught in the act as they perform public occult magic. Once you understand their covert signals and coded picture messages, your world will never be the same. Destiny will be made manifest. You will know the truth and everything will become clear.
This book connects the present with the past. For example: 1. Baphomet, devil goat-god, is discovered carved in stone in an archway at Yale University. 2. The secret hand signs, symbols, and codes of the Illuminati are part of the ritual performance of black magic. 3. The identity of the Illuminist who declared, "My goal is to shift the planet. And I’m doing it!" 4. The secret signs and symbols of the Illuminati are used to invoke spirit entities and demon powers. 5. This 33rd degree Mason admits that the ritual for the 33rd degree links the recipient directly to Lucifer himself. 6. John Wilkes Boothe, assassin of Abraham Lincoln, was a Scottish Rite Mason, as was his brother, Edwin. 7. Secretary of State Colin Powell gives the Illuminist hand sign, indicating his secret worship of the serpent god, "Jahbuhlun." 8. The 700 Club’s Pat Robertson displays the sign of the Devil’s Claw. AND so much more!
Reveals the truth that both Gentile and Jewish leaders have been instrumental in the past -- and continue to be influential today -- in this drive for the King of Antichrist (New World Order). Marrs spares neither side.

The hour is so very late and the true soldiers are so few! Are you ready to respond to the sound of the "BATTLE CRY"?
You will learn the shocking truth about: 1) Satanism and the occult; 2) Secret Societies; 3) New Age Movement and its terribly pervasive invasion of all aspects of American culture; 4) Our Shadow Government and the new "Tolerance", by which we all may go to jail; 5) Local Government and its vital role in overthrowing the old system so the new can be established; 6) The United Nations and its role as the infant Global Government which is designed to grow up "fast and furious"; 7) Mind Control; 8) False prophets in the church
Where do all these elements fit in, and what can be done about them?

AMERICAN POLITICAL WITCHCRAFT -- The roots of "coincidence" and conspiracy in American politics, crime and culture is exposed in this fascinating new book. You will finally understand the early connections between religion, political conspiracy in high places, and outright occult practice. It is true: some key American Founding Fathers were practicing the Dark Arts!
The author contends that a matrix of politics and violence alone is incapable of explaining the demented 20th Century that shuddered to an end in Manhattan on 9/11/2001. What is needed is an examination of the "third dimension" -- and this dimension is the "occult". But, the practice of the occult goes far beyond any normal realm, for its power reaches into the halls of politics and power. Once this fact is properly understood, the evil, bloody 20th Century shudders into focus.
You will see what lies behind those masques of secrecy! And, you will understand how it impacts your life and well-being. This book understands that there is a Satanic undercurrent to American affairs. For this reason, our history is littered with astonishing coincidences, improbable but factual interconnections, occasional exposures of buried government history, outright assassinations and inexplicable historic conjunctions which scream out for explanation when none can be provided by Conventional Wisdom.
Readers are taken from ancient American civilization, to mysterious Pre-Columbian mound-makers, to the Salem Witch Trials, the birth of Mormonism during a ritual of ceremonial magick by Joseph Smith, plus Operations Paperclip and Bluebird.
Fascinating details revealed of the bizarre world of "wandering bishops" who appeared throughout the Kennedy assassinations, a CIA mind control program running amok, the famous American spiritual leader who had ties to Lee Harvey Oswald in the weeks before the Kennedy assassination , and the horrible "Manson Secret" -- and of course, to the current UFO and Alien obsession.

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. Great Britain is instituting the same surveillance planned for America, surveillance so tight our freedoms and liberties can be taken away, and the prophecy of Revelation 13:16-18 fulfilled to the letter.
NEWS BRIEF: "Britain will be first country to monitor every car journey: From 2006 Britain will be the first country where every journey by every car will be monitored", The Independent, 23 December 2005
" Britain is to become the first country in the world where the movements of all vehicles on the roads are recorded. A new national surveillance system will hold the records for at least two years. Using a network of cameras that can automatically read every passing number plate, the plan is to build a huge database of vehicle movements so that the police and security services can analyze any journey a driver has made over several years ... By next March a central database installed alongside the Police National Computer in Hendon, north London, will store the details of 35 million number-plate 'reads' per day. These will include time, date and precise location, with camera sites monitored by global positioning satellites.
"But others concerned about civil liberties will be worried that the movements of millions of law-abiding people will soon be routinely recorded and kept on a central computer database for years .... The scheme is being orchestrated by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) and has the full backing of ministers ... More than 50 local authorities have signed agreements to allow the police to convert thousands of existing traffic cameras so they can read number plates automatically."
Note that this draconian system of tracking the movement of every car on every trip in every part of Great Britain utilizes the network of existing cameras! Therefore, it is not hard to understand that all the calls all these past years for cameras to be set up in every city and town and on every road was simply a precursor to this system! Despite repeated denials that local cameras would never be used to infringe upon the freedom of any law-abiding citizen, we can see now that authorities undoubtedly had this end game in mind from the very beginning.
In America, similar cameras are going up all over this county. City and town authorities are using Federal monies to purchase cameras, all for the express purpose of "driving criminals from the road". Yet, one day soon, we shall learn that enough cameras in enough localities are now in place to carry out similar monitoring of every single trip that every single law-abiding citizen will ever take.
This loss of personal anonymity of individual American citizens presages the loss of individual freedoms. These chilling events may very well spell the end to personal freedom in the United States and around the world. Our Founding Fathers clearly understood that personal freedom depended upon personal anonymity. If a government could know what people were doing, and with whom they were associating, that government could act to take away the freedom of either their political foes or the entire population. Therefore, we received certain Constitutional rights and privileges to that our Founding Fathers hoped would preserve our personal anonymity.
To understand how important this personal anonymity is to personal freedom, you only have to examine the practices of every dictatorship in history. Each dictatorship developed and maintained an extensive internal police surveillance department that spread its tentacles throughout the citizenry to spot dissidents or others deemed a threat to the dictatorship. Even neighbors were used to spy on each other. Without this internal surveillance, the leaders of the dictatorship felt threatened.
As we head into the New World Order, we find a threat to personal anonymity and hence, personal freedom, at an all-time high. This new global system is foretold by the Bible to be the most repressive in history, so we should be concerned.
But, on the other hand, we should be excited, for this kind of tight, minute-by-minute control of every person on earth is foretold in prophecy -- in the "Mark of the Beast" prophecy found in Revelation 13:16-18.
POPULATION CONTROL OF REVELATION 13:16-18 "MARK OF THE BEAST"
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." [Rev 13:16-17]
"... the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration." [Revelation 13:3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
We need to understand these issues with this prophecy:
1. The segment, -- "he causeth all" -- literally means that 100% of the population at the time the False Prophet forces this "Mark of the Beast" will be required to take it. This means that no one will escape this dragnet. No homeless person will escape, and no top-level executive commanding great resources will escape. The global government at that time will be able to so completely know the whereabouts of each individual citizen by that time that the "long arm of the law" will be able to reach out to apprehend anyone attempting to evade the dragnet. What means do we see right now which might so completely keep track of every individual of earth? This list is not intended to be thorough, just complete enough that you will be stimulated to think.
A. The world is ringed with satellites so sophisticated they can read newspapers which are being read on the streetB. Invasive surveillance techniques which allow police to look through walls of homes now that leaded paint has been forbiddenC. Invasive surveillance techniques which allow government agents to record every single keystroke you have made on your computer and know every place you visited on the InternetD. Capabilities to intercept phone calls, fax transmissions, and emailsE. Modern cars are equipped with Global Positioning devices which allows agents to track anyone as they travel down the road.F. Infrared technology which allows government to sense the heat of any human body in any forest, thus making it impossible for a "survivalist" to hideG. Bunker-penetrating satellite technology which will allow agents to see deep within the earth and see structures built below the earth
2. The segment -- "no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark" -- means that no person anywhere, at any time, can make any purchase without the mark. Again, this requirement has no validity unless the government can keep track of all violations by any citizen at any place at any time. This means that the following types of purchases will be outlawed without the "Mark of the Beast", and that the prohibition will be backed with sufficient technological surveillance to force compliance.
What types of transactions will be forbidden unless a person has the "Mark"?
A. Regular retail purchasesB. Major purchases like cars and homesC. Paying the kid down the street to mow your lawnD. Giving a tip in a restaurantE. Neighborhood street drug purchases
Of course, another innovation required to make this system work is a totally cashless economic system. Bible scholars prior to the advent of the computer knew that this "Mark of the Beast" system required the economy of Antichrist to be cashless, but had no idea how that would be practically possible. But, now, every Christian familiar with prophecy has no problem believing that all transactions will some day be cashless, so much so that paper and coin currency will actually be eliminated. Computers made all this possible.
Computers have also made it possible for this camera surveillance system to be implemented in Great Britain, and powerful computers will make it possible for authorities to properly sift through every tiny detail of the data these cameras will be daily producing. This type of system is exactly the kind of individual control that we would expect as the world gets close to the actual appearance of Antichrist.
Listen to the Illuminati Plan, which so closely parallels the kind of controlled society foretold in Revelation 13:16-18.
"Eventually every individual element of the structure comes under computer control through a knowledge of personal preferences, such knowledge guaranteed by computer association of consumer preferences (universal product code -- UPC -- zebra-stripe pricing codes on packages) ... society becomes a well-regulated animal with its reins under the control of a sophisticated computer-regulated social energy bookkeeping system." [Bill Cooper, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 44)
Did you catch the relevant phrase? "society becomes a well-regulated animal with its reins under the control of a sophisticated computer-regulated social energy bookkeeping system."
What does Scripture foretell? "And he causeth all"
II. As the fallout continues to roil over President Bush's clandestine decision to circumvent both the Constitution and the 1978 Intelligence Act by ordering eavesdropping on citizens without court approval, the fact is lost in the news muddle that the most important eavesdropping tool is deeply flawed and has led to innocent people being accused.
NEWS BRIEF: "Worldwide Conversations Being Received By Echelon System May Fall Into Wrong Hands and Innocent People May Be Tagged As Spies", 60 MINUTES Transcript, Television Broadcast February 27, 2000
"If you made a phone call today or sent an e-mail to a friend, there's a good chance what you said or wrote was captured and screened by the country's largest intelligence agency. The top-secret Global Surveillance Network is called Echelon, and it's run by the National Security Agency and four English-speaking allies: Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. The mission is to eavesdrop on enemies of the state: foreign countries, terrorist groups and drug cartels. But in the process, Echelon's computers capture virtually every electronic conversation around the world ... How does it work, and what happens to all the information that's gathered? A lot of people have begun to ask that question, and some suspect that the information is being used for more than just catching bad guys."
NOTE: From now on in this segment, the conversation occurs between the moderator, Kroft, and Mr. MIKE FROST (Former Spy)!
KROFT: (Voiceover) We can't see them, but the air around us is filled with invisible electronic signals, everything from cell phone conversations to fax transmissions to ATM transfers. What most people don't realize is that virtually every signal radiated across the electromagnetic spectrum is being collected and analyzed. How much of the world is covered by them?
Mr. MIKE FROST (Former Spy): The entire world, the whole planet--covers everything. Echelon covers everything that's radiated worldwide at any given instant.
KROFT: Every square inch is covered.
Mr. FROST: Every square inch is covered.
KROFT: (Voiceover) Mike Frost spent 20 years as a spy for the CSE, the Canadian equivalent of the National Security Agency, and he is the only high-ranking former intelligence agent to speak publicly about the Echelon program. Frost even showed us one of the installations where he says operators can listen in to just about anything.
Mr. FROST: Everything from--from data transfers to cell phones to portable phones to baby monitors to ATMs......
KROFT: (Voiceover) Inside each globe are huge dishes which intercept and download satellite communications from around the world. The information is then sent on to NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland, where acres of supercomputers scan millions of transmissions word by word, looking for key phrases and, some say, specific voices that may be of major significance.
Mr. FROST: Everything is looked at. The entire take is looked at. And the computer sorts out what it is told to sort out, be it, say, by key words such as 'bomb' or 'terrorist' or 'blow up,' to telephone numbers -- or a person's name. And people are getting caught, and that's great ....
KROFT: (Voiceover) ... Is it possible for people like you and I, innocent civilians, to be targeted by Echelon?
Mr. FROST: Not only possible, not only probable, but factual. While I was at CSE, a classic example: A lady had been to a school play the night before, and her son was in the school play and she thought he did a lousy job. Next morning, she was talking on the telephone to her friend, and she said to her friend something like this, 'Oh, Danny really bombed last night,' just like that. The computer spit that conversation out. The analyst that was looking at it was not too sure about what the conversation was referring to, so erring on the side of caution, he listed that lady and her phone number in the database as a possible terrorist.
KROFT: This is not urban legend you're talking about. This actually happened?
Mr. FROST: Factual. Absolutely fact. No legend here.
KROFT: (Voiceover) Back in the 1970s, the NSA was caught red-handed spying on anti-war protesters like Jane Fonda and Dr. Benjamin Spock, and it turns out they had been recording the conversations of civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King in the 1960s. When Congress found out, it drafted strict, new laws prohibiting the NSA from spying on Americans, but today, there's enough renewed concern about potential abuses that Congress is revisiting the issue."
Can you imagine that a completely innocent lady is now listed in a database as a terrorist because she innocently used the word, "bombed" in a conversation the day after her son performed badly in a school play? This lady may have trouble one day flying on a commercial airliner or getting credit, especially as controls are tightened as we move into the New World Order.
On the Cutting Edge Daily News Updates for November 23, 2001, we had posted an article reporting that Europeans were outraged over revelations of the capabilities of this system and of the key people being targeted.
NEWS BRIEF: "Europeans Enraged Over Echelon Orbital Surveillance", Rense.com, By Alex Canizares, Special to SPACE.com, 11-21-2001
"WASHINGTON (States News Service) - Fearing that governments are misusing a global surveillance system to eavesdrop on millions of people, Europeans are protesting a massive Cold War security network known as Echelon. The government-operated security system -- meant to target terrorists, drug-traffickers and money-launderers by intercepting communications between satellites and ground stations -- is now drawing protests by activist groups .... Shrouded in secrecy, Echelon is said to be able to scan millions of phone conversations, e-mails, faxes and pages a day, searching for particular words or phrases ... "
"The European Parliament, which held hearings on Echelon, is claiming that the United States and Britain already are spying on European companies and sharing corporate details with companies in their own countries ... The frenzy reached a crescendo last week when British newspapers reported that both Britain and the United States have eavesdropped on the late Princess Diana, as well as Mark Thatcher, son of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. While none of the allegations have been proven, experts say the ability for ground-based stations to scan satellite communications for key words is very real."
From now on, innocent, law-abiding citizens are going to have to be most careful in what they say, lest they be listed in the government's database as a "terrorist". And, the most unbelievable thing in all this is that this entire effort at intrusion into our private affairs is being justified by the attacks of 9/11 -- attacks which have been proven to any reasonable person as having been "Agent Provocateur" operation, i.e., action carried out by government operatives in order to blame someone else so a government goal can be realized.
The 1995 Illuminati Card Game proves this fact beyond all reasonable doubt.
III. President Bush found himself in deepening political trouble this past week. Let us review the pertinent news stories.
NEWS BRIEF: "Blowback for Bush: Domestic spying scandal couldn’t have come at a more inappropriate time for President Bush, could be 'body blow' ", Khaleez Times, 18 December 2005
"THE political storm over the domestic spying scandal couldn’t have come at a more inappropriate time for President Bush. This could be a body blow to the President who is already under fire over Iraq and the CIA torture flights to Europe and Middle East. The support for the US leader has already been steadily declining at home as the Americans watch his handling of Iraq with increasing uneasiness. No wonder the majority of Americans, who had convinced themselves that the US ‘war on terror’ around the world was inevitable and necessary, find it hard to digest the fact that their government has been watching and spying on them in the true Orwellian fashion. The outrage has been swift and widespread. According to opinion polls, 87 per cent of the Americans have responded angrily to the spying reports. Parallels are being drawn with President Richard Nixon’s infamous Watergate scandal.
"... In yet another devastating blow to the administration, the Senate has refused to renew the controversial Patriot Act that had been rushed through after the September 11 attacks. Human rights groups and media in and outside US have criticised the anti-terror law as undermining civil liberties and democratic values celebrated in the US constitution. In another important development, Bush has been forced to withdraw opposition to the ban on torture, thanks to a courageous stand taken by Republican Senator John McCain ... it betrays a considerably sobered presidency."
Since February, 2004, Cutting Edge has regularly been noting the many ways in which it seemed President Bush was coming under fire from people as Illuminist as he! We said then, and repeat it now, that it does seem that Bush is being deliberately discredited. If he is discredited and brought down -- either in stature or out of office -- the Illuminati will have destroyed the only two forces they really fear: 1) National Sovereignty; 2) Fundamental Christianity.
Now, let us continue this storyline.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Defends Secret Spying in the U.S. ", The Guardian (London), December 18, 2005
"WASHINGTON (AP) - Facing angry criticism and challenges to his authority in Congress, President Bush on Saturday unapologetically defended his administration's right to conduct secret post-Sept. 11 spying in the United States as 'critical to saving American lives' ... House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she had been told on several occasions that Bush had authorized unspecified activities by the National Security Agency, the nation's largest spy agency. She said she had expressed strong concerns at the time, and that Bush's statement Saturday 'raises serious questions as to what the activities were and whether the activities were lawful'."
"Often appearing angry in an eight-minute address, the president made clear he has no intention of halting his authorizations of the monitoring activities and said public disclosure of the program by the news media had endangered Americans. Bush's willingness to publicly acknowledge a highly classified spying program was a stunning development for a president known to dislike disclosure of even the most mundane inner workings of his White House."
"Since October 2001, the super-secret National Security Agency has eavesdropped on the international phone calls and e-mails of people inside the United States without court-approved warrants. Bush said steps like these would help fight terrorists like those who involved in the Sept. 11 plot ... News of the program came at a particularly damaging and delicate time. Already, the administration was under fire for allegedly operating secret prisons in Eastern Europe and shipping suspected terrorists to other countries for harsh interrogations ... Bush said his authority to approve what he called a 'vital tool in our war against the terrorists'' came from his constitutional powers as commander in chief. He said that he has personally signed off on reauthorizations more than 30 times."
"James Bamford, author of two books on the NSA, said the program could be problematic because it bypasses a special court set up by the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to authorize eavesdropping on suspected terrorists.
``I didn't hear him specify any legal right, except his right as president, which in a democracy doesn't make much sense,'' Bamford said in an interview. 'Today, what Bush said is he went around the law, which is a violation of the law - which is illegal'.''
Cutting Edge has repeatedly stated that Americans are historically more in danger of suffering incremental loss of liberty under a Republican President than a Democrat. We are certainly seeing this axiom coming true, are we not? That fact that these difficulties for President Bush are coming out piecemeal, thus forcing him to "twist in the wind", leads me to conclude again that we are seeing the outworking of a plan to discredit President Bush and all for which he stands.
We can see further elements of this tactic in the article, below.
NEWS BRIEF: "GOP Ranks Breaking Over Bush's Tactics: Recent administration setbacks and scandals have sparked concern and resistance over the broad powers he has used to fight terrorism", L.A. Times, December 18, 2005
"WASHINGTON — Even as he has faced the defeat of domestic priorities and growing opposition to the U.S. engagement in Iraq, President Bush has always been able to rely on one great asset: broad political support for his conduct of the struggle against terrorism. But now, four years after Sept. 11, concerns are rising even among fellow Republicans over some of the tools he is using in that effort, and Bush finds himself defending the very war that defined his presidency and assured his reelection. Bush's surprising admission Saturday that he had ordered domestic communications surveillance without court approval came as Republicans once willing to give the White House wide legal berth on security matters have begun to call for greater scrutiny of U.S. conduct."
"Republican lawmakers have in recent days rebuked the White House in its opposition to an all-out ban on torture ... and have demanded information on a newly revealed network of secret CIA prisons around the world. At the same time, the Republican-led Senate refused Friday to renew the Patriot Act, expressing growing concern about the anti-terrorism law's effect on civil liberties. The unease within his party — and the specter of hearings on Capitol Hill on some of the anti-terrorism tactics used — suggests the national debate is beginning to shift on how much latitude Bush can claim in the name of national security."
".... Bush was clearly on the defensive Saturday. And despite arguing that Americans "expect me to do everything in my power under our laws and Constitution to protect them and their civil liberties," he faced the prospect of an increasingly restive Republican Congress ... Although polls suggest the public remains supportive of government vigilance against terrorism, many Republicans are wary that — at the outset of the 2006 midterm election season — Democrats could paint certain methods as violations of traditional American values.
" 'We need to be mindful of Ben Franklin's words over 200 years ago: Those who would give up essential liberty in the pursuit of a little temporary security deserve neither liberty nor security', Sununu said Friday."
I well remember the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Within hours of the attack, talking heads were framing their debates by asking the question, "How many freedoms will Americans be willing to give up to gain greater security?"
The immediacy of this terrible line of debate clearly indicated to me that these attacks WERE, indeed, designed to severely erode our freedoms. Every action since then by this Administration have just strengthened this belief. Today, Patriot Acts I and II, plus the laws built around them, will deliver Americans to a dictatorship. We are closer to this goal than ever before.
Do not be deceived by this Planned Struggle between Republicans and Democrats over President Bush's policies. Both parties are equally committed to the New World Order; this "struggle" is just going to result in achievement of other goals -- quite possibly the thorough discrediting of the President, as noted above.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush's false choices", By Ellen Goodman, The Boston Globe, December 23, 2005
"SO IT COMES DOWN to September 11, 2001. Again. The president has drawn a great dividing line through the country, separating his supporters from his critics. Again. This time, those who see a presidency run amok are not just labeled ''defeatists." They are considered amnesiacs. This time, those who oppose torture are diagnosed with short-term memory loss. Those who are outraged at domestic snooping are people who have forgotten to be afraid. The president's ''humble' speech from the Oval Office contained the inevitable line: ''September the 11th, 2001, required us to take every emerging threat to our country seriously'. His decidedly unhumble wrestling with the media on the subject of domestic spying had no less than 10 references to ''this new threat [that] required us to think and act differently'."
Again, I well remember the immediate aftermath of the attacks of 9/11. President Bush and some of his Cabinet members, stated that they were determined to fight terrorism while preserving American freedoms. However, they immediately began to demand dictatorial powers, which when enacted, would take away those very freedoms they were pledging to preserve.
Do not be deceived: our freedoms and liberties are targeted for absolute destruction. You must ignore the official rhetoric to understand this reality.
NEWS BRIEF: "'Impeachment' Talk, Pro and Con, Appears in Media at Last", Truth Out Editorial, December 23, 2005
"Suddenly this week, scattered outposts in the media have started mentioning the 'I' word, or at least the 'IO' phrase: impeach or impeachable offense. The sudden outbreak of anger or candor .... has been sparked by the uproar over revelations of a White House approved domestic spying program, with some conservatives joining in the shouting. Ron Hutcheson, White House correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspapers (known as 'Hutch' to the president), observed that 'some legal experts asserted that Bush broke the law on a scale that could warrant his impeachment'. Indeed such talk from legal experts was common in print or on cable news."
"Newsweek online noted a 'chorus' of impeachment chat, and its Washington reporter, Howard Fineman, declared that Bush opponents are 'calling him Nixon 2.0' and have already hauled forth no less an authority than John Dean to testify to the president's dictatorial perfidy. The 'I-word' is out there, and, I predict, you are going to hear more of it next year - much more."
"... John Dean, who knows something about these matters, calls Bush "the first President to admit to an impeachable offense." And one of those thoroughly unscientific MSNBC online polls found about 88% backing the idea through late Wednesday .... On Wednesday, Washington Post blogger/columnist Dan Froomkin, declaring that "The 'I-word' is back," assembled an array of quotes on the subject. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), he pointed out, sent a letter this week to four unidentified presidential scholars, asking whether they think Bush's authorization of warrantless domestic spying amounted to an impeachable offense.
"Todd Gillman wrote in the Dallas Morning News: 'Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., suggested that Mr. Bush's actions could justify impeachment'. And Froomkin cited Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University and a specialist in surveillance law, saying 'When the president admits that he violated federal law, that raises serious constitutional questions of high crimes and misdemeanors."
Remember this fact: an impeachment of a sitting President is as much political will as it is genuine impeachable offenses. Therefore, as long as the Republicans retain control of Congress, all talk of impeachment will undoubtedly be just that -- talk. But, if Democrats were to gain control of one or both houses of Congress, impeachment might gain enough traction to actually make it happen.
IV. As the Senate approval process over Judge Allito's appointment to the Supreme Court ground along silently, most Americans are unaware of the severe menace posed by the Roman Catholic majority which his approval would produce!
NEWS BRIEF: "Divided Allegiance: Judge Alito's Appointment to the Supreme Court - New Catholic Majority Supreme Court Shaping Up?", by Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer, Southwest Radio Bible Church
" On October 31, 2005, Samuel A. Alito, Jr. was nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Although many persons identify this day as Halloween, many Protestants celebrate it as Reformation Day-the birth of the Protestant faith. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Catholic church in Wittenberg, Germany. It is quite ironic that President Bush chose this day to nominate this man whose confirmation would create the first majority-Catholic Supreme Court in the history of the United States. Alito would become the 112th Supreme Court justice and the 12th Catholic on the High Court. He would become the 5th Catholic presently sitting on the Court."
"All three branches of the government, including the judiciary, were to be guided by God and His word. Religious values were to be the fabric of our society and were to control a judge's professional obligations. Like everyone else, judges will answer to a higher authority. However, problems arise when that higher authority appears to be a mere mortal rather than Almighty God. Can a Catholic-majority Supreme Court disregard the pope on certain conflicting issues or will it reinvent the Constitution so that the pope can reign supreme in this land, as he has in many European countries? Most Americans do not realize the extent of the antagonism that has existed between the claims of the papacy and the sovereign rights of nations. God provided His design for civil government. Our original system of government-a Republic-originated from the book of Isaiah. The founding fathers applied what they learned from the Bible to establish the greatest form of government ever known to man."
"For the LORD is our judge (judicial branch), the LORD is our lawgiver (legislative branch), the LORD is our king (executive branch); he will save us." (Isaiah 33:22).
"Catholics Banned From Holding Office --
"The early documents of the various colonies reveal that the founders had very real concerns concerning the divided loyalties of Catholics. Unlike some of the other colonies, Georgia did not establish a state religion. The Protestant settlers were allowed to worship as they pleased, but they felt a very real threat from Catholics who owed their allegiance elsewhere. The original founding documents of the colonies and states prove this."
At this point, the author lists those states who originally passed laws forbidding Catholics from holding office:
* Charter of the Georgia Colony in 1732
* The New Jersey Constitution of 1776
* North Carolina Constitution of 1776
" Many of the other state constitutions read very similar to that of New Jersey."
Our Founding Fathers were very well aware of the dangers of Catholic adherents holding public office. They were sick and tired of the kings of Europe wreaking tyranny, bloodshed, torture, and injustice upon their own citizens. They were sick and tired of the role the Roman Catholic Pope had exerted in Europe and Great Britain in forcing individual monarchs to murder their own people under the threat of personal excommunication, an act which kings believed would land them in eternal Hell. By the time of the American Revolution, the Catholic Office of the Inquisition had been raining down death, torture, and destruction for nearly 1,300 years (NOTE: The Inquisition began in 600 A.D., aimed primarily at practitioners of Black Magick Witchcraft; Peter Tomkins, "The Magic of Obelisks", p. 55).
The Roman Catholic Church stands for nothing else politically except severe dictatorship, with supreme power vested in the Pope.
Now, 230 years after the founding of America, a Republican, "christian" President is set to complete the gradual plan to set in place a Catholic majority on the United States Supreme Court. Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer speaks to this issue next. You can see how the sensitivity toward a position on Abortion has set genuine Christians up to be deceived and deluded.
"The last two men recommended by President Bush for the Supreme Court have been Catholics, nominated, in part, for their perceived position on Roe v. Wade ... Among conservatives who are disregarding the religious affiliations of the Supreme Court justices, a nominee's perceived position on Roe v. Wade seems to be the key issue in supporting Alito's nomination. Assuming his confirmation, Catholics will comprise 56% of the Court-a simple majority on every issue."
Now, Dr. Stauffer lists the current membership of the US Supreme Court, with their religious affiliation:
* Catholic-Chief Justice John Roberts
* Jewish-Justice Stephen G. Breyer
* Jewish-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
* Catholic-Justice Anthony M. Kennedy
* Catholic-Justice Antonin Scalia
* Episcopalian-Justice David H. Souter
* Protestant-Justice John Paul Stevens
* Catholic-Justice Clarence Thomas
* Catholic-Justice-elect Samuel Alito
"... everyone knows that it is nearly impossible to predict how a justice will vote. Generally, justices, once on the court have tended to unpredictably lean to the left. The potential for damage by this court's leaning left or right is quite alarming. The Court will be controlled by those belonging to a religion that has notoriously usurped the rights of the people in order to establish a church-state religion influenced or controlled by Rome." (Ibid.)
Not only is a potential Catholic majority on the Supreme Court a potential political disaster, but it very well might be a disaster on moral grounds, as well. Dr. Stauffer speaks to the reality that the current Pope is implicated in a molestation of a child -- a pedophile, in other words -- and the Bush Administration is protecting him. Listen carefully:
"Our government's present support of the Catholic church is shown in the following shameful and frightening example. In a recent lawsuit, Plaintiffs claimed that a Columbian-born seminarian on assignment to Houston's St. Francis de Sales molested them. Juan Carlos Patino-Arango allegedly molested the three boys during counseling sessions in the 1990s. He has been indicted in a criminal case and is a fugitive from justice. The story would be hardly newsworthy since it resembles the news reports in almost every diocese in America. However, the current pope has been served with papers named as a defendant in the case. An issue in the lawsuit cites a May 18, 2001, letter from then-Cardinal Ratzinger, written in Latin to bishops around the world, explaining that 'grave' crimes such as sexual abuse of minors would be handled by the congregation (that is, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) and that the proceedings of special church tribunals handling the cases were also subject to 'pontifical secret'. In other words, these cases were to be decided in Rome by the Vatican in secret and not within jurisdictional boundaries of the various countries, including the U.S."
"The U.S. government told a Texas court that Pope Benedict XVI should be given immunity from the lawsuit which accuses him of conspiring to cover up the sexual molestation of the three boys by the seminarian. The assistant U.S. Attorney General Peter Keisler says that the pope enjoys immunity as the head of state-the Vatican. Hopefully, everyone knows who Keisler's boss is. Wikipedia online encyclopedia describes Keisler's boss, Alberto Gonzales, as follows: 'Despite keeping a low profile about his religious affiliation, Gonzales has described himself as a Catholic'."
"The boys' lawsuit will most likely fail because of established precedent and the fact that the United States has maintained diplomatic relations with the Vatican since 1984. The Catholic church has always been exempt from the interpretation of the 1st Amendment establishment clause of the U.S. Constitution. Rome is the only religious institution that has embassies and ambassadors in Washington. The United States has the same in Rome. According to Article 48 of the Apostolic Constitution on the Roman Curia, promulgated by Pope John Paul II on June 28, 1988: 'the duty proper to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is to promote and safeguard the doctrine on the faith and morals throughout the Catholic world'. The statement sounds harmless until one realizes that this organization was secretly policing the pedophiles within the Catholic church (and doing a poor job of it, as many known molesters were left at their posts or transferred from diocese to diocese)."
You should also be alarmed at one other historical fact about this "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith": its historical name is the "Office of the Inquisition", which killed an estimated 100 million people from 600 AD - 1850 AD (circa). When Pope John Paul II reinstated this "Office of the Inquisition", giving it the more innocent name, "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith", I believed that was one major sign that the End of the Age is close, for it is the False Religious Prophet (Pope) who is prophesied to force all people worldwide to take the "Mark of the Beast" or suffer beheading. Pope John Paul II reinstated this horrific office because the time was at hand to use it again, to flood the world with the blood of genuine saints of Jesus Christ.
Whom did John Paul II name as head of this horrible institution? Cardinal Ratzinger, now known as Pope Benedict!
Given the fact that the Illuminati has historically suffered greatly at the hands of the Roman Catholic Inquisition, and that our Illuminist Founding Father Freemasons hated the Vatican greatly, why do we now see the spectacle that President Bush is about to name a Catholic judge which will provide a Catholic majority on the Supreme Court? The answer may surprise you. There are two basic reasons President Bush is letting "bygones be bygones" in establishing a Catholic Court majority.
2) The Illuminati decided, in early 1991, that the top religious leader of the New World Order Religion would be the Pope, whomever he was at the time. (NEWS1052)
Perhaps the time has now come to further the power of the Roman Catholic Church, now that the world is spinning quickly to the appearance of Antichrist. Since Roman Catholic authorities showed absolutely no mercy to any of their political and/or religious victims for the 1,200 years of the Inquisition, is it too much to think that the Illuminati might want a five-justice majority on the Supreme Court during the final stretch of our nation's existence?
V. Even though much has been made of Rumsfeld's decision to only commit 135,000 American soldiers to the Iraqi invasion rather than the 360,000 the Pentagon said they needed, few people realize that the number of private contractors fighting alongside our troops is fully 100,000 men. This brings the number of soldiers committed to this war to 235,000, a figure which is closer to the original Pentagon figure -- and we still have not gained victory!
NEWS BRIEF: "US lawsuit could dent $150 billion annual global war-contractor boom: Companies field 100,000 men who fight along-side regular soldiers", New Zealand Herald, 23.12.05
" WASHINGTON - An unprecedented lawsuit stemming from the gruesome killing of four American civilians in Iraq is slowly making its way through the US legal system, closely watched by companies estimated to field up to 100,000 contractors alongside the US military. Lawyers and military experts say the case highlights legal gray zones, a lack of regulation and little oversight of a booming global industry believed to bring in more than $150 billion annually. Civilian military contractors now perform scores of functions once restricted to regular troops, and a trend toward 'privatizing war' has been accelerating steadily."
"The suit was brought by the families of four civilian contractors shot last year by Iraqi insurgents, who burned their bodies and hung the charred remains from a bridge across the Euphrates river in the city of Falluja. The four .... worked for Blackwater Security Consulting LLC, one of the companies fielding armed civilians in Iraq under contract with the Pentagon. All four had military experience and signed contracts assuming all risks and waiving their right to sue. The suit against Blackwater says the company broke explicit terms of its contract with the men by sending them to escort a food convoy in unarmored cars, without heavy machine guns, proper briefings, advance notice or pre-mission reconnaissance, in teams that were understaffed and lacked even a map."
The figure -- 100,000 contractors -- was mentioned once more in this article.
"Addicott, a retired Special Forces officer, estimates that the number of civilian contractors in Iraq surpassed 100,000 this year. 'That takes into account not only people specifically hired to provide armed security, but also those in transportation, construction, food services, housing, laundry etc. Americans and non-Americans'. Other experts agree with that estimate'." (Ibid.)
In the first section, we read that "Civilian military contractors now perform scores of functions once restricted to regular troops, and a trend toward 'privatizing war' has been accelerating steadily."
Indeed, the number of civilian contractors has been jumping skyward in the past year. Quoting from a Cutting Edge Newsletter, December 25, 2004, Paragraph VI, we read:
"The numbers of private contractors in Iraq have been estimated between 15,000 - 20,000 men, almost all of whom are former military special forces. As Rumsfeld deliberately discredited original Pentagon estimates of 360,000 men -- sending in only 140,000 -- these highly specialized, well-trained and well-armed fighters were deemed to be the answer for our lack of regular forces soldiers."
These private military contractors are all former soldiers, most of them from elite western forces throughout the world. Even as the Pentagon was scaling back requests for more troops, they were bringing in tens of thousands of these former, well-trained military contractors. And, the Iraqis hated them greatly, as the story, above, illustrates quite well. Insurgents "burned their bodies and hung the charred remains from a bridge across the Euphrates river in the city of Falluja".
Why would insurgents hate these men so much? In large part, we believe it is because civilian contractors can be more brutal and abrupt in their methods, since they do not report to a higher command structure.
When Americans finally leave Iraq, will these hihgly trained and heavily armed civilian contractors protect their retreating flanks?
VI. Cutting Edge reported some weeks ago that the debate over withdrawing American troops from Iraq had suddenly shifted very subtly: rather than debating whether troops should be withdrawn, both sides of the issue abruptly began to argue over the timing and the circumstances. This past week, President Bush is reported to have approved the first real cuts.
NEWS BRIEF: "Rumsfeld: Bush OKs cutting number of Iraq troops",
"BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- President Bush has authorized a reduction in U.S. combat troops in Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Friday, talking before troops at Camp Falluja, Iraq. 'At the recommendation of our military commanders and in consultation with our coalition partners and with the Iraqi government, President Bush has authorized an adjustment in U.S. combat brigades in Iraq from 17 to 15' .... About 3,500 soldiers are in each brigade ... The adjustments will reduce forces in Iraq below the base-line level of 138,000 -- which has provided the guideline for most of the year -- by spring 2006."
British Prime Minister Tony Blair seemed caught up in the withdrawal fever.
NEWS BRIEF: "Blair: troops could begin Iraq pullout within six months", The Guardian (London), 23 December 2005
"Tony Blair indicated yesterday that a phased withdrawal of British troops from Iraq could begin within six months in the first official confirmation of an exit plan. Speaking during a lightning visit to Basra, his fourth in the past 12 months, Mr Blair held out the prospect of a pullout beginning in the first half of 2006. Mr Blair refused to divulge a specific timetable, but he sounded an optimistic note and gave the clearest signal yet of British military intentions. Mr Blair insisted the political and security situation in Iraq was completely different from that of a year ago.
" 'It is our strategy to draw down forces and we don't want to leave people here longer than we need to. The whole process is to build up the Iraqi capability in the armed forces and police so we can draw down our own forces. The political aspect can only be buttressed by a strong security aspect increasingly taken over by the Iraqis themselves'."
Now, this article tells us what we knew for a very long time, even though official circles have been vehemently denying it. There IS a specific plan for withdrawal.
"Mr Blair's comments followed hour-long talks with Zalmay Khlalzid, the US ambassador, and General Commander George Casey, the overall commander of forces in the country, on the political and military aftermath of the elections. A senior US military source in Iraq told the Guardian: 'There is a plan in place'. He said the commanding officer in all 18 Iraqi provinces would have a series of issues to consider, including: the capability of Iraqi forces; level of insurgency; trustworthiness of police force; and degree of ethnic and sectarian violence. Only when all the boxes had been ticked would a province be considered ready for handover to the Iraqi forces and withdrawal by the US and British troops."
Everyone now agrees: The time for Coalition Forces to leave Iraq has come. The only questions are: 1) How fast; 2) Under what conditions; 3) What kind of fig leaf do we really need to justify our exit? 4) Will we withdraw under fire?
NEWS BRIEF: "Russia Will Take Syria's Side If War With US Erupts", RIAN News, 20/ 12/ 2005
"MOSCOW, December 20 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will take Syria's side if charges against Syrian officials with involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri cause a conflict between the United States and Syria, two Russian parliamentary members said Tuesday.
" 'If Russia is to choose between its two strategic allies, it will undoubtedly take Syria's side', said Shamil Sultanov, a coordinator of an inter-faction association, Russia and the Islamic World: A Strategic Dialogue. Nikolai Leonov, a member of parliament's security committee, who had recently visited Syria along with Sultanov and other MPs, said it was primarily beneficial for the U.S. to accuse Syria of murdering Hariri. 'Indeed, Syria is an excellent oil corridor with access to deep-water Mediterranean ports. Besides, this is a good pretext to distract the world community's attention from the events in Iraq', the MP said."
Then, one of the Russian M.P.'s dropped a bombshell.
"Leonov said earlier that he was concerned that Syria could face the Iraqi scenario."
Of course, this last quote means that Syria might face an American invasion. However, that invasion had better come quickly, before Coalition Forces are withdrawn, or the United States would lose its launching ground for the invasion. Since this is reality, it means that, if President Bush is going to invade Syria, he needs to do so quickly, before he withdraws the very troops from Iraq he would need to invade Syria. Furthermore, American troops are currently only within a few miles of the border, so now is the time to attack.
Since Russian President Putin is bragging that he is Islam's Protector, has he equipped Syria with the defenses needed to repel an American attack?
After examining this article, you might just conclude that Russia's Putin has just checkmated America's Bush. You might also conclude that, perhaps, Russia is beginning to move into the Middle East in just the manner necessary for her to one day march against Israel in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39. Let us now go back nearly one year ago to see how Russia was aggressively upgrading the defense systems for both Iran and Syria. Undoubtedly, these defensive upgrades are now in place.
NEWS BRIEF: "Syrian Missile Sale Slots into Secret Russian Air Defense System for Iran", DEBKAfile Exclusive Military Report, January 24, 2005
"Russian president Vladimir Putin and Syrian president Bashar Assad, who arrived in Moscow Monday, January 24, will sign a $70 million deal for the sale of 20 SA-18 Igla-S batteries mounted on Armored Personnel Carriers. One of the most effective missiles against low-flying aircraft on the market, the SA-18 is manufactured at the Russian KBM factory near Moscow ... The Igla-S is also effective against small targets like reconnaissance drones, helicopters and cruise missiles. Missile experts report that when fired against fighter craft an Igla-S has the effectiveness of two missiles fired in a single round – or five missiles when launched against a cruise missile."
An earlier DEBKAfile report on this issue stated that this anti-aircraft and ant-missile system was the same system protecting Moscow right now! Therefore, we can see how very serious Putin was when he originally warned America on April 12, 2003, not to attack either Syria or Iran. Before he stepped to the podium, Putin and his military advisers almost certainly had conceived this air defense system which could protect the Middle East from Iran to Syria from the enormous threat of Israeli and/or American air power.
Now, let us go back to DEBKAfile to learn more of this air defense system:
"Moscow’s objective is partly to secure its investment in Iran’s nuclear center at Bushehr on the Persian Gulf against the fate of the Saddam Hussein’s French-built Tamuz nuclear center which the Israeli air force bombed out of existence 24 years ago ... Russian experts from the Raduga OKB engineering group in Dubna near Moscow had just completed the installation of two advanced radar systems around the Bushehr nuclear reactor on the Persian Gulf. These improved mobile 36D6 systems, Western code named 'Tin Shield', were custom-made to upgrade the air defense radar protecting Iran’s key nuclear facilities from American or Israeli aerial, missile or cruise missile attack." (Ibid.)
Now, let us return to this featured article to gain insight as to possible Russian protection against Syria:
"Already, the Russian military umbrella over Iran is emitting diplomatic signals ... On January 12, the day Russian radar was finally installed at Bushehr and Isfahan, the Kremlin leaked word of a large-scale arms deal afoot with Syria ... What really worries Washington and Jerusalem is the possibility of Assad and Putin putting their heads together on the same 36D6 radar system Moscow has supplied Iran. Our military sources describe the Tin Shield 36D6 as a mobile radar system designed to detect air targets and perform friend-or-foe identification. It is highly effective in detecting low, medium and high altitude targets moving at almost any speed, including winged missiles and American or Israeli cruise missiles. It is capable of providing the target and bearing of active jamming, as well as integrated computer-aided systems of control and guidance of anti-aircraft missile complexes. Tin Shield can operate independently as an observation and air detection post, as part of computer-aided control systems or as an element in an anti-air guided missile complex, where it carries out reconnaissance and targeting. If Syria gets this sophisticated system, a Russian-coordinated Iranian-Syrian-Lebanese radar barrier will rise with three serious consequences that go beyond the balance of strength in the Middle East..." (Ibid.)
Did you catch the pertinent geo-political sentence in this quote? Remember, this quote is nearly one year old.
"If Syria gets this sophisticated system, a Russian-coordinated Iranian-Syrian-Lebanese radar barrier will rise with three serious consequences that go beyond the balance of strength in the Middle East..." (Ibid.)
If America does attack Syria, she is likely to discover she is facing Russian Scalar and perhaps even Quantum Potential weapons. Now that would be a problem!
Finally, medical authorities are beginning to speak up, warning that the heavily-promoted Tamiflu vaccine is no good.
NEWS BRIEF: "H5N1 Bird Flu is `resisting' Tamiflu", Taipei Times, Dec 23, 2005
"Indonesia's bird flu death toll rose to 11 yesterday amid worrying new evidence that the virus may be developing resistance to Tamiflu, the only drug known to be effective against it. Test results from a World Health Organization (WHO)-affiliated laboratory in Hong Kong showed that a 39-year-old Indonesian man and an eight-year-old boy were the country's latest victims of the H5N1 strain of the virus ... Meanwhile, in Vietnam, bird flu had become resistant to Tamiflu in two fatal cases, a doctor said. Menno de Jong, from the Institute of Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City, said Tamiflu was ineffective in fighting the virus in two girls who died. 'Our two patients became resistant despite a full dose of treatment. Both died and in one patient there are some suggestions that the therapeutic failure and ultimately her death may have been caused by the development of resistance', he said."
Officials like Defense Secretary Rumsfeld who own the California company who owns the global patent on Tamiflu must be very upset with this revelation, for it just might short-circuit their plans to get even more filthy rich from government purchases of the risky, dangerous, and now ineffective vaccine!
NEWS BRIEF: "Expert not surprised at Tamiflu resistance", New Zealand Herald, 23.12.05
"Professor Arnold Monto, from the University of Michigan, said it was expected that the bird flu virus H5N1 would evolve into resistant forms. The deaths were reported this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. But Prof Monto said the fact the two Vietnamese patients had developed the resistant strain may not have in itself caused their deaths. 'I think that really has very little to do with the outcome, namely that both of them died, especially since one of them was actually treated six days into the illness', Prof Monto told National Radio.
" 'The virus has developed resistance. We knew that this was going to happen'.'
Remember, medical science has never beaten a virus yet, because they mutate so rapidly. By the time a vaccine is developed which would kill a virus, that virus has mutated so it is not affected by the vaccine. Since viruses are not beatable, it is no wonder that, once scientists cracked the genetic code, certain of them began to develop diseases that will ultimately fulfill the plagues of the Book of Revelation -- and these deliberately created diseases were viruses.
Do not take a flu vaccine: they are going to be loaded with risky and perhaps, even deadly materials. Do not be like the "sheeple" who are properly scared by government propaganda and who rush down to take the vaccine which just might kill them.
NEWS BRIEF: "Canadians can have group sex in "swingers" clubs: Top Court rules", Reuters News, December 21, 2005
"OTTAWA (Reuters) - Group sex between consenting adults is neither prostitution nor a threat to society, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Wednesday, dismissing arguments that the sometimes raucous activities of so-called "swingers" clubs were dangerous. in a ruling that radically changes the way Canadian courts determine what poses a threat to the population, the court threw out the conviction of a Montreal man who ran a club where members could have group sex in a private room behind locked doors.
"Consensual conduct behind code-locked doors can hardly be supposed to jeopardize a society as vigorous and tolerant as Canadian society," said the opinion of the seven-to-two majority, written by Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin.
The decision does not affect existing laws against prostitution because no money changed hands between the adults having sex. In indecency cases, Canadian courts have traditionally probed whether the acts in question "breached the rules of conduct necessary for the proper functioning of society". The Supreme Court ruled that from now on, judges should pay more attention to whether society would be harmed.
The judges said that just because most Canadians might disapprove of swingers' clubs, this did not necessarily mean the establishments were socially dangerous.
"Attitudes in themselves are not crimes, however deviant they may be or disgusting they may appear," the judges said, noting that no one had been pressured to have sex or had paid for sex in either of the cases'."
This kind of behavior occurred in Sodom and Gomorrah, in both homosexual and heterosexual instances. Now, the moral pendulum has swung full-circle. What did Jesus foretell?
"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:28-30)
Western society is becoming like Sodom!

"Contrary to the popular joke ahead of the big day - and to the disappointment of many of the hundreds of people gathered outside - Sir Elton John did not choose to marry his long-term boyfriend David Furnish wearing a white wedding dress or even a flamboyantly coloured explosion of lace ruffles. Instead, the duo said "I do" at Windsor's Guildhall wearing sober black dress suits. Sir Elton, 58, and the Canadian film-maker, 43, were among 700 gay couples to join in civil partnerships yesterday, the first day that same-sex unions became legal in England and Wales."
"When the grooms arrived, just before 11am, the crowd roared with excitement ... After signing the register to seal their civil partnership, the men exchanged vows in a 20-minute service described by Ms Taylor-Wood as "beautiful" and "very emotional".
"Everyone clapped and, of course, they kissed at the end," added Mr Jopling. "It was just like any other couple getting married."
Of course, this has long been the goal of the gay - lesbian community: have people in society view homosexual marriage as "just like any other couple getting married."
Now, we get down to the root cause of this moral collapse. Americans have rejected Jesus.
NEWS BRIEF: "Military chaplains told to shy from Jesus: Cannot pray in Jesus' Name or they could be fired", The Washington Times, december 21, 2005
"To pray -- or not to pray -- in Jesus' name is the question plaguing
an increasing number of U.S. military chaplains, one of whom began a multiday
hunger strike outside the White House yesterday. 'I am a Navy chaplain being
fired because I pray in Jesus' name', said Navy Lt. Gordon Klingenschmitt,
who will be holding 6 p.m. prayer vigils daily in Lafayette Park.
The hunger strike is intended to persuade President Bush to issue an executive order allowing military chaplains to pray according to their individual faith traditions. The American Center for Law and Justice has gathered 173,000 signatures on a petition seeking an executive order.
"Seventy-three members of Congress have joined the request, saying in an Oct. 25 letter to the president, 'In all branches of the military, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Christian chaplains to use the name of Jesus when praying' ... About 80 percent of U.S. troops are Christian, the legislators wrote, adding that military "censorship" of chaplains' prayers disenfranchises "hundreds of thousands of Christian soldiers in the military who look to their chaplains for comfort, inspiration and support."
"Official military policy allows any sort of prayer, but Lt. Klingenschmitt says that in reality, evangelical Protestant prayers are censored. He cites his training at the Navy Chaplains School in Newport, R.I., where "they have clipboards and evaluators who evaluate your prayers, and they praise you if you pray just to God," he said. "But if you pray in Jesus' name, they counsel you."
This situation screams for a remedy from the 80% of the Christian soldiers in America's army. "Christian" President Bush can ride to the rescue of Christian soldiers with his Executive Orders, in much the same fashion as President Clinton rode to the rescue of gay soldiers the second day of his Administration, when he issued an Executive Order called "Don't Tell, Don't Ask". This Executive Order made it very difficult for the American armed forces to dismiss soldiers because they were gay.
President Bush now has the opportunity to issue a similar Executive Order - for his Christian constituency. We can't wait, for we can finally add a genuine "Good Fruit" to our table of "President Bush's Evil vs Good Fruits".

Once let the truth of God obtain an entrance into the human heart and subdue
the whole man unto itself, no power human or infernal can dislodge it. We
entertain it not as a guest but as the master of the house--this is a Christian
necessity, he is no Christian who doth not thus believe. Those who feel the
vital power of the gospel, and know the might of the Holy Ghost as He opens,
applies, and seals the Lord's Word, would sooner be torn to pieces than be
rent away from the gospel of their salvation. What a thousand mercies are
wrapt up in the assurance that the truth will be with us for ever; will be
our living support, our dying comfort, our rising song, our eternal glory;
this is Christian privilege, without it our faith were little worth. Some
truths we outgrow and leave behind, for they are but rudiments and lessons
for beginners, but we cannot thus deal with Divine truth, for though it is
sweet food for babes, it is in the highest sense strong meat for men. The
truth that we are sinners is painfully with us to humble and make us watchful;
the more blessed truth that whosoever believeth on the Lord Jesus shall be
saved, abides with us as our hope and joy. Experience, so far from loosening
our hold of the doctrines of grace, has knit us to them more and more firmly;
our grounds and motives for believing are now more strong, more numerous than
ever, and we have reason to expect that it will be so till in death we clasp
the Saviour in our arms.
Wherever this abiding love of truth can be discovered, we are bound to exercise our love. No narrow circle can contain our gracious sympathies, wide as the election of grace must be our communion of heart. Much of error may be mingled with truth received, let us war with the error but still love the brother for the measure of truth which we see in Him; above all let us love and spread the truth ourselves. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
