---------- Inspiration For the Week-------The Lord mighty in battle." Psalm 24:8
Well may our God be glorious in the eyes of His people, seeing that He has
wrought such wonders for them, in them, and by them. For them, the Lord Jesus
upon Calvary routed every foe, breaking all the weapons of the enemy in pieces
by His finished work of satisfactory obedience; by His triumphant resurrection
and ascension He completely overturned the hopes of hell, leading captivity
captive, making a show of our enemies openly, triumphing over them by His
cross. Every arrow of guilt which Satan might have shot at us is broken, for
who can lay anything to the charge of God's elect? Vain are the sharp swords
of infernal malice, and the perpetual battles of the serpent's seed, for in
the midst of the church the lame take the prey, and the feeblest warriors
The saved may well adore their Lord for His conquests in them, since the arrows of their natural hatred are snapped, and the weapons of their rebellion broken. What victories has grace won in our evil hearts! How glorious is Jesus when the will is subdued, and sin dethroned! As for our remaining corruptions, they shall sustain an equally sure defeat, and every temptation, and doubt, and fear, shall be utterly destroyed. In the Salem of our peaceful hearts, the name of Jesus is great beyond compare: He has won our love, and He shall wear it. Even thus securely may we look for victories by us. We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. We shall cast down the powers of darkness which are in the world, by our faith, and zeal, and holiness; we shall win sinners to Jesus, we shall overturn false systems, we shall convert nations, for God is with us, and none shall stand before us. This evening let the Christian warrior chant the war song, and prepare for to-morrow's fight. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

* "God The Master Mathematician", by Dr. Hutchings
The Bible is the most numerically constructed book in the world! Many early church fathers, ministers, and theologians wrote of the complex mathematical designs in Scripture, proving that only a Master Mathematician could have directed this numerical construction. The fact that the 66 books of the Bible, written over a period of 1,600 years by 40 or more writers, most not having preceding or succeeding books, yet continuing the amazing mathematical patterns, proves that a Master Mathematician was in charge.
This book will not drown you in math or technical details, but is written simply to demonstrate that the Master Mathematician who inspired the Scriptures is the same Lord Jesus Christ Who is able to save to the uttermost all who come to HIm in faith. If you have a skeptical friend, he or she needs this book!
A most compelling book which proves that trained, well-educated, erudite scientists can also be Creationist Christians. 50 such scientists cite evidence from their particular field of science impelling them to believe in a literal, six-day creation, plus a young earth. A must read if you are to understand the facts that prove Creationism well enough to persuade the skeptical and those misinformed by our Public Schools!

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. "Re-wilding" news bubbles to the surface from time to time, even though its planners try very hard to keep this concept from the average American; citizens would become outraged should they ever really discover that the government plans to seize their private property and then dictate where they shall relocate. We shall examine two articles on "re-wilding", beginning with New Orleans.
NEWS BRIEF: "Blacks accuse city elite of land grab", smh.com.au (Australia), By Miguel Bustillo in New Orleans, January 13, 2006
"UNDER a controversial proposal, residents of the New Orleans suburbs most heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina will have four months to prove strong support for rebuilding their areas before possibly being forced to sell their properties to the US Government."
Please stop right there to focus on a most important understanding: this proposal may force individual property owners to "sell their properties to the US Government"!
This fact is key to the United Nations plan to force citizens off their private property and on to land selected by global planners -- Read NEWS1368 and NEWS1863 for full details. Since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we have believed that much of New Orleans was planned to be "re-wilded" (Read NEWS2070) rather than re-built -- at least rebuilt according to her original size and glory.
If we are right, then we should be seeing evidence of plans to not re-build fully, to impede progress toward a full restoration. Since Katrina, we have noted several new stories -- primarily from residents local to the city -- which reflect this mind set. But, this article speaks to it more completely -- even to the point of declaring that individual property owners will be forced to "sell their properties to the US Government"!
Let us continue now with this incredible new article:
"The proposal, unveiled on Wednesday, is central to a recovery plan by the mayor, Ray Nagin, called 'Bring New Orleans Back'. It drew immediate outrage from residents and community activists who argued that many citizens, especially blacks who make up most of the flood victims, could be forced out of the city for good." (Ibid.)
Again, note the key language: "blacks ... could be forced out of the city for good."
To reiterate, this United Nations "Re-Wilding" Biodiversity plan will ultimately force residents out of their properties and out of cities and town "for good".
"The plan represents an attempt to seek the middle ground in the debate over how to restore the ravaged city: should all of New Orleans be rebuilt or should city planners shrink its footprint, returning low-lying suburbs to wetlands to serve as a natural barrier against floods? 'None of us want to be in this particular place, but Katrina has forced us to take a good hard look at what we need to do to rebuild our city', Mr Nagin said. 'The reality is we will have limited resources to redevelop our city'." (Ibid.)
Take a hard look at the key elements in this statement which fully reflect the reality of re-wilding:
1) Planners are thinking to "shrink" the original city, "returning low-lying suburbs to wetlands". This concept is absolutely key to re-wilding. This entire planet, you see, is really a living, breathing goddess named Gaia. Our Industrial Civilization is placing too much stress on Mother Gaia in certain areas of the world. To correct this "stress", global planners intend to force people out of their lands, seize their property, and return that land to the "wild", i.e., the condition the land was in before the White Man came to the scene.
2) You can also ignore the caveat that these changes are needed " to serve as a natural barrier against floods". The reality is that the lands to be re-wilded were selected long before Hurricane Katrina struck.
3) "... we will have limited resources to redevelop our city'."
After President Bush presented his "rah-rah" rebuilding New Orleans speech, we cautioned that budgetary restraints alone might prevent such a glorious rebuilding of this city. America simply cannot afford to rebuild Iraq, fund our active war there, rebuild all other areas hit by hurricanes in the past three years, and still have enough money to completely rebuild New Orleans.
We thank New Orleans Mayor Nagin for admitting that local, state, and Federal governments do not have the funds necessary to rebuild New Orleans.
Consider this most recent news story about America's budget constraints.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq, the mother of all budget busters", By David Isenberg, Asia Times, January 14, 2006
"t turns out the eventual cost of the war in Iraq will not be several hundred billion, but according to a new study at least a thousand billion dollars - US$1 trillion, in other words. This figure dwarfs any previous estimate by orders of magnitude. Given the projected cost of $1 trillion to $2 trillion, one might imagine that American taxpayers are now rolling on the floor in hysterical laughter while gasping for air. To get an idea of the economic black hole the Iraq war could become, it is useful to remember some of the past estimates given by the administration of President George W Bush. Recall, for example, when then-White House economic adviser Lawrence Lindsey suggested in 2002, six months before the war, that the mission could cost $100 billion to $200 billion, Bush fired him because his estimate was up to three times the $70 billion the administration estimated."
This next segment puts this enormous monetary figure into perspective.
"Conservative columnist Paul Craig Robert wrote after the latest estimate: "Americans need to ask themselves if the White House is in competent hands when a $70 billion war becomes a $2 trillion war. Bush sold his war by understating its cost by a factor of 28.57. Any financial officer anywhere in the world whose project was 2,857% over budget would instantly be fired for utter incompetence." (Ibid.)
The Iraq War has, indeed, become the ultimate in budgetary "black hole"! As a "black hole", it is sucking all other budgetary needs into its center. And, that includes the money to finance reconstruction in New Orleans.
Now, let us return to our original story in the Australian online news agency, smh.com.au, as the story continues to unfold that poor blacks may be forced out of New Orleans for good. Naturally, the city's blacks reacted angrily.
"Despite Mr Nagin's effort to ease tensions, the unveiling of the proposal quickly became heated, with residents across racial and class lines angrily responding to what they considered a land grab engineered by the city's wealthy. Much of the ire was heaped on a New Orleans developer, Joseph Canizaro, a key architect of the plan, who was booed at a residents' meeting." (Ibid.)
Quite frankly, the poor and the Middle Class are planned to lose everything in this plan. Once the New World Order is established, and once Antichrist announces this 'Re-wilding" plan worldwide, only two classes of people will remain alive: 1) Wealthy elite Illuminati and their families; 2) The slaves, made up primarily of the poor and the powerless.
Our suspicions are deepened when we learn that the city of New Orleans is turning to FEMA for the "facts" concerning whether these areas should be rebuilt.
"Residents would then have to demonstrate there was sufficient support in their area to rebuild to warrant public investment in schools and city infrastructure. To accelerate the process, Nagin's commission is asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency to release updated floodplain maps which effectively could make the decision for many homeowners by raising home insurance rates and setting other new financial barriers to redevelopment." (Ibid.)
Did you catch that last sentence? New Orleans may never be completely rebuilt because of "raising home insurance rates" and because "other new financial barriers (have been raised) to redevelopment."
When the story finally breaks that the city will not be fully rebuilt, the blame may go to insurance companies and banking institutions, thereby sparing President Bush the political blame!
As we noted in NEWS2070, the reality that "re-wilding" was really planned for at least a strong proportion of New Orleans was revealed when Homeland Security took control of the city very quickly after the levees collapsed; at that point, flooding covered 80% of the city. Federal control of New Orleans would act as a strong barrier to the local emotion to quickly and completely rebuild.
Now, we learn that a strong agency of that same Federal Government -- FEMA -- is now being asked to make technical recommendations as to which sections of the city should be rebuilt and which ones should return to their original wetlands state.
We shall have to watch this developing story carefully, for it does look like the rebuilding of New Orleans is going to include significant areas which will be "re-wilded" rather than "re-built".
II. The concept of "Re-wilding" has advanced far enough that we are occasionally seeing news stories and/or editorials using this term, further conditioning Americans to the idea that they should support the restoration of the region on which their private property is located to the original "wild". Note that, in this instance, these "re-wilding" scientists are urging a return to the condition of 13,000 years ago!
NEWS BRIEF: " 'Re-wild' America: Bring The Cheetah Back?, by Nicholas D. Kristof, Bend (Oregon) Bulletin, 12/18/2005.
"The pronghorn antelope is North America's speediest animal, capable of running 60 miles per hour. But, why? Its predators don't run nearly that fast, so why would the pronghorn evolve such a capability? The answer is probably the cheetah. We think of the cheetah as African, but America had its own cheetahs, along with elephants, lions, camels, and wild horses ... Now come the craziest -- and appealing -- ideas in the biological world: reintroducing species to the Americas. Eventually, this could allow Americans to ... see scenes that humans haven't witnessed on this continent since about 11,000 B.C."
"...in a commentary in Nature in August, a handful of scientists led by Josh Donlan of Cornell University suggested a 'Pleistocene re-wilding' -- the introduction of species from elsewhere that would closely resemble those in the ecosystem of the Pleistocene era ... the proposal provoked gasps of horror, some from Americas who did not wish to look out from their back window and see a cheetah devour a camel -- or worse, their child. There's been such a furor about reintroducing wolves in Yellowstone ... but the idea is not for a Jurassic Park. Things would start slowly with less threatening creatures like the Bolston tortoise ... the next step would be to find a 200,000 acre ranch in the Southwest ... and yes, such a game preserve would have a strong perimeter fence."
Now, this editorial presents the concept behind the draconian "Re-wilding".
"... if we really wanted to recover part of the wilderness that existed before humans helped muck up the ecosystem, we might want to go back to what is a heartbeat away in cosmic time: say, 13,000 years ... one aim is to restore checks and balances ... To me, as an avid backpacker, another advantage is that this re-wilding might entice Americans away from their televisions and connect them with nature .... There are a million reasons why none of this may be feasible, and it's always ecologically dangerous to tinker with nature. But, some of the biggest human tinkering came when we helped exterminate large animals 13 millenniums ago ... " (Ibid.)
This editorial is written so as to hide the iron fist within the velvet glove. The reality is that, while "re-wilding" conditioning is occurring before the Masonic Christ appears, the real onset of this program will wait until he is on the world scene and has completed his planned "seven-year cleansing" program for the earth!
III. Since February, 2004, Cutting Edge has been noting the seemingly inexplicable criticism of Skull & Bones President Bush by equally Illuminist officials. We noted at the time that, when you see this kind of criticism, you are looking at the outworking of a plan -- in this case, the plan seemed to be to discredit President Bush. As we have stated before, if President Bush is brought down in such a way as to completely discredit him, he would take down the only two enemies the Illuminati has ever admitted: National Sovereignty (Patriotism), and Christianity.
An article written this week by a "RESPECTED EXPERT" speaking from a "RESPECTED FORUM" seems to indicate that this campaign may be reaching new heights.
NEWS BRIEF: "The Impeachment of George W. Bush", by Former House Representative Elizabeth Holzman, The Nation Magazine, January 30, 2006 issue
"Finally, it has started. People have begun to speak of impeaching President George W. Bush--not in hushed whispers but openly, in newspapers, on the Internet, in ordinary conversations and even in Congress. As a former member of Congress who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon, I believe they are right to do so."
The main purpose of this opening paragraph is to establish to you, the reader, the credentials of the author, Elizabeth Holzman. We discover that she was a Representative in the House of Representatives at the time of the hearings to impeach President Nixon, and that she sat on the House Judiciary Committee! Therefore, she must know whereof she speaks! Right? By establishing her credentials in this manner, Holzman establishes herself as a "Respected Expert", a key ingredient in the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan.
Since she is also writing in a respected magazine, "The Nation", Holzman is speaking from a "Respected Forum".
Holzman recounted the bottom-line reason impeachment proceedings were initiated against President Nixon: "... it became clear that the President had so systematically abused the powers of the presidency and so threatened the rule of law that he had to be removed from office".
She now believes President Bush has crossed the same dividing line. Let us now review the reasons Elizabeth Holzman feels President Bush should be impeached.
* "Bush's breathtaking scorn for our international treaty obligations under the United Nations Charter and the Geneva Conventions." (Ibid.)
I always get a little upset when an American government official criticizes another official because that person did not uphold some international law, for this type of criticism conditions Americans to accept international law and conventions as the standard by which our government should be judged. The real standard is American law and American precedent. Validating global law and convention will only lead to acceptance of the coming "Christ" and his global dictatorial regime.
* She became "disturbed by the torture scandals and the violations of US criminal laws at the highest levels of our government" (Ibid.)
* "... President deliberately misled the country into the war in Iraq". (Ibid.)
* "President Bush directed the wiretapping of hundreds, possibly thousands, of Americans, in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)--and argued that, as Commander in Chief, he had the right in the interests of national security to override our country's laws". (Ibid.)
At this point, Elizabeth Holzman invoked the somber image of Watergate! Now that President Bush's activities have now been labeled, "Watergate", can the actual process of impeachment be far behind? If the President is to be impeached, control of Congress must pass from current Republican control to Democrat control, and that means the Democrats must win the mid-term elections this coming November. However, news reports through 2006 can be made to unfold in such a manner that President Bush slowly begins to "twist in the wind".
Holzman then recaps her opinion as to the possibility of impeaching President Bush.
"As a matter of constitutional law, these and other misdeeds constitute grounds for the impeachment of President Bush. A President, any President, who maintains that he is above the law--and repeatedly violates the law--thereby commits high crimes and misdemeanors, the constitutional standard for impeachment and removal from office. A high crime or misdemeanor is an archaic term that means a serious abuse of power, whether or not it is also a crime, that endangers our constitutional system of government." (Ibid.)
For the rest of this six-page article, Elizabeth Holzman describes each of these impeachable offenses in considerable detail. We encourage you to read this entire document. However, one statement does stand out and needs to be shown here.
"A President can commit no more serious crime against our democracy than lying to Congress and the American people to get them to support a military action or war. It is not just that it is cowardly and abhorrent to trick others into giving their lives for a nonexistent threat, or even that making false statements might in some circumstances be a crime. It is that the decision to go to war is the gravest decision a nation can make, and in a democracy the people and their elected representatives, when there is no imminent attack on the United States to repel, have the right to make it. Given that the consequences can be death for hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of people--as well as the diversion of vast sums of money to the war effort--the fraud cannot be tolerated. That both Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon were guilty of misleading the nation into military action and neither was impeached for it makes it more, not less, important to hold Bush accountable."
"Once it was clear that no weapons of mass destruction would be found in Iraq, President Bush tried to blame 'bad intelligence' for the decision to go to war, apparently to show that the WMD claim was not a deliberate deception. But bad intelligence had little or nothing to do with the main arguments used to win popular support for the invasion of Iraq." (Ibid.)
We could not have said it more succinctly; but Cutting Edge was right in the midst of the action, calling to people's attention that President Bush and his entire hierarchy led the nation into an invasion of Iraq based upon outright, bold lies and manipulations. Read our two part series, posted in February, 2004 -- "Bush/Blair Justification Of Iraq Invasion: Now Proven To Be Lies, Distortions, Exaggerations" -- Part 1 and Part 2
Elizabeth Holzman even reports on the findings of the Downing Street Memo, which Administration backers have tried their best to discredit. However, if a person with Ms Holzman's credentials and access to intelligence reports verifies the existence of this memo, then the memo is real indeed.
As I read through this six-page article listing all the reasons President Bush should be impeached, I realized Holzman did NOT list the use of Depleted Uranium Munitions in both Iraq and Afghanistan! This war crime is the highest and most serious of all crimes for which President Bush can be impeached! Ordering our troops into these two countries, and using D.U. weaponry in unprecedented numbers, has doomed the entire civilian populations (approximately 55 million people), and has doomed the vast majority of all American soldiers to a slow, agonizing death. (Population figures from CIA World Factbook Online, July, 2005)
Why has Holzman's indictment of President Bush not included the most serious crime of them all? Once again, you are looking at the outworking of a master plan. I remember well reading the indictment of President Clinton. Of all the serious national security crimes for which Bill Clinton could have been impeached, the House of Representatives decided to impeach him on the weakest of all charges -- Oval Office sex with his intern, Monica Lewinsky!
I predicted then that the "fix was in", that the Senate would exonerate President Clinton. Of course, that is exactly what happened as a Masonic Senate exonerated the former Demolay President (Read NEWS1264).
Therefore, the fact that Holzman's list of impeachable offenses does not include Depleted Uranium warfare is staring us directly in the face. What conclusions may we draw from it? We might conclude that the "fix is in" already for Masonic Skull & Bones President Bush to undergo severe testing and threatened impeachment, but not suffer that fate in the end. However, the fact that he invoked his powers as a National Sovereign to invade Iraq against the wishes of the world community, and the propaganda lie that President Bush based his "Regime Change" foreign policy upon Christian doctrine and End of the Age understandings, may still destroy those two institutions completely -- without the President actually being removed from office.
We shall just have to wait to see how events turn out. The year 2006 should prove to be a most interesting and decisive year.
IV. As evangelical firebrand, Pat Robertson, reeled from public criticism that Israeli Prime Minister Sharon might have suffered his stroke because God severely disapproved of anyone who would "divide His land", he issued a contrite public apology. However, the lesson we should garner from this story is quite different from the public rhetoric; once again, we have to look in the opposite direction of the rhetoric to discover the truth -- NEWS1558, "Breaking Out of the Mental Propaganda Box: Learning To Discern The Truth By Looking In The Opposite Direction of the Public Rhetoric")
NEWS BRIEF: "Pat Robertson 'Writes Humble Letter of Apology to Israel' ", by Steve Shultz, Editor, Breaking Christian News, January 13, 2006
"THE Associated Press is reporting that Pat Robertson has written a formal letter of apology for his comments regarding the stroke incurred by Ariel Sharon. This letter was to be hand-delivered to Sharon's son, Omri. In Addition, Pat Robertson was on Fox News issuing one of the most humble apologies I've ever seen a Christian minister with a wide television ministry issuing ... Pat, who has been and remains a formidable force for morality and an avid supporter of Israel all his life, deserves great commendations from the Christian community for being willing to humble himself, for his life of service and giving..."
"Pat publicly stated in a letter dated Wednesday and marked it for hand delivery to Sharon's son Omri, that the Israeli prime minister, Arial Sharon was a 'kind, gracious and gentle man' who was 'carrying an almost insurmountable burden of making decisions for his nation'."
" 'My concern for the future safety of your nation', Pat continued, led me to make remarks which I can now view in retrospect as inappropriate and insensitive in light of a national grief experienced because of your father's illness', the letter said. 'I ask your forgiveness and the forgiveness of the people of Israel ...' "
This is quite an apology! However, the question remains: what original remarks did Pat Robertson make which created this "humble" apology? For this information, we need to go back a few days in Daily News Updates, January 6, 2006.
NEWS BRIEF: "White House criticizes U.S. evangelist remark about Sharon", Ha'aretz News, January 7, 2006
"WASHINGTON - The White House sharply criticized Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson on Friday for suggesting that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for 'dividing God's land' ... Robertson made his comments about Israel and Sharon on his TV program, 'The 700 Club' ... He said, "God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.'"
"He was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations, or the United States of America', Robertson said. 'God says, 'This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone'.'"
As we saw events unfolding "on the ground" in Israel which we predicted in October, 2000, events we felt would be needed if the goal of the Oslo "Peace" Accords was to annihilate the Palestinians (NEWS1422, NEWS1620, NEWS2095), we began to realize that Israel was not "dividing" God's Biblical lands! What Israel was really doing was effecting a "strategic withdrawal" from The Gaza and portions of the West Bank so that she can carry out her prophesied annihilation.
Israel literally has to pull out her citizens from "harm's way" so that up to 80,000 of her own citizens will not die during the all-out attack against the Palestinians. Then, once Obadiah 15-18 is literally fulfilled, the Israeli Defense Force will reoccupy The Gaza and the West Bank; additionally, her forces will reoccupy Lebanon, Syria up to Damascus, the provinces of Edom and Moab in Jordan, the Sinai, and western Iraq up to the Euphrates River. God gave this land to Abraham in "perpetuity", so it will fall back into Israel's hands.
This concept is called the "Greater Israel".
But, for now, Israel is planning a strategic withdrawal from the Gaza (already done) and from most of the West Bank. President Bush knows this reality, Ariel Sharon knows it, top Palestinian leadership knows it, and discerning citizens throughout Israel know it. If Pat Robertson does not know this reality, I would be very surprised, since he seems to be close to the President.
However, what these type of statements do accomplish is to continue to keep up the cloud of obfuscation which hides what is really planned to occur.
V. The public rhetoric concerning Iran's nuclear program seemed to reach new levels of hysteria, with one western source saying that Iran had "passed a point of no return" in her nuclear weapons development. Still, Iran continued to issue belligerent statements, indicating she was still confident in her Russian protection.
In U.S. Army Intelligence, I learned that war rhetoric ratcheting rapidly upward could very well be an imminent war sign.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran has crossed the point of no-return to a nuclear weapon - undeterred by international censure", DEBKAfile Intelligence, January 10, 2006
"The cries of outrage over Iran’s bald-faced removal of the seals at its Natanz nuclear facility have a familiar ring. They also evoked little more from the turbaned rulers of Tehran than a cool shrug. The seals to shut down equipment for making centrifuges for the enrichment of uranium were affixed two years ago by the UN nuclear watchdog’s inspectors at the subterranean Natanz facility. During this period, Tehran broke one pledge after another and defied every international rebuke, as diplomacy led by France, Britain and Germany, alternated with unfulfilled threats of UN sanctions, to grant the Iranians precious time to forge ahead with its atomic weapons program. Tehran cannily prepared the way for its fateful step at Natanz Monday, Jan. 10, by calling it the resumption of the innocent-sounding “nuclear research.”
"Now, belatedly, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s director, Dr Mohammed ElBaradei warns that, as well as breaking the international seals at Natanz, Iran will before Wednesday remove seals on two other connected sites. French president Jacques Chirac has reacted with dismay, UK foreign secretary Jack Straw with 'huge regret', German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Iran had crossed a line, Israel is tied down by its prime minister unconscious in hospital. Its chief of staff, Lt. Gen- Dan Halutz conceded Monday that the fight against Iran’s nuclearization must be an international effort in which Israel cannot take the lead. And the White House is still undecided about referring Iran’s case to the UN Security Council."
Notice the trend toward military inaction inherent in this article. Even the White House is "still undecided about referring Iran’s case to the UN Security Council." While some of this bland rhetoric may be designed to camouflage military preparations, it is also possible that this entire incident is planned to be "Rumors of War" rather than outright war. After all, this kind of war rhetoric has been flowing from the West against Iran since Summer, 2003. The West blusters hard, the Iranians flick the criticism off, and then the West backs off.
This next article is so typical of the bland American threat we have seen for over two years now.
NEWS BRIEF: "US warns Iran against 'serious escalation' ", Iran Mania, January 11, 2006
"LONDON, January 11 (IranMania) - The United States warned Iran against a 'serious escalation' in their nuclear row and brandished the threat of UN action after Tehran said it had resumed sensitive atomic research ... A senior US official said Washington was consulting with its allies and he raised the possibility of calling an emergency meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN nuclear watchdog."
"But there was no immediate sign of any further concrete response to Iran's move to remove IAEA seals from at least one research center and resume work that US officials fear could lead to a nuclear bomb ... The White House reacted strongly to the IAEA report Tuesday that Iran had lifted the seals on its Natanz research facility and was planning to do so at two other connected sites. 'Any resumption of enrichment and reprocessing activities would be a further violation of Iran's agreements with the Europeans', spokesman Scott McClellan said. 'Such steps would be a serious escalation of the nuclear issue'. McClellan said the US administration was pursuing talks with Britain, France and Germany, the so-called EU-3."
Thus, far, a direct American attack has not been mentioned. The last part of this article states the opposition to direct military strike which Western powers would face in the United Nations.
"It was an open question whether Russia and China, two permanent members of the UN Security Council with veto power, would support punitive action against Tehran."
One news article clearly stated that Israel was preparing her forces to strike.
NEWS BRIEF: "Israel Accelerates Iran Strike Plan", NewsMax, January 13, 2006
"A preemptive airstrike by Israel against suspected nuclear weapons facilities in Iran could come as early as March ... The Israeli raids would be carried out by long-range F-15E bombers and cruise missiles against a dozen key sites and are designed to set Tehran's weapons program back by up to two years ... Pilots at the Israeli air force's elite 69 squadron have been briefed on the plan and have conducted rehearsals for their missions."
While this article seems logical and it certainly ratchets up the war rhetoric, it ignores the reality that Israel must attack the Iranian nuclear sites with her Scalar and Quantum Potential weapons systems, not through "long-range F-15E bombers and cruise missiles". Only this type of military action can penetrated Russian defenses with her Scalar and Quantum Potential weapons.
Once you understand this reality, news stories like this just smack like dis-information!
We spoke of this possible war against Iran in the last newsletter, and we stand by our conclusion, which we wish to quote here. Quoting from our January 7, 2006, newsletter:
"We see only one possibility that there would ever be an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities: if the Illuminati is prepared to ignite all-out regional war!
That kind of Middle East war is planned, but only when the time has come to ignite the global war which will produce Antichrist. The Global Planners have dubbed this war "World War III", a war which has been planned since 1870 (NEWS1056). Iran will certainly retaliate with all weapons at her disposal, and that includes nuclear weapons. Iran has certainly planned to attack Israel as part of her plan to defeat the American invasion of Iraq (NEWS1910).
A Western attack on Iran will only occur if the Illuminati is ready for the World War III to begin.
VI. While the U.S. Senate concludes its confirmation of Judge Alito, Pastor Chuck Baldwin posted an article which hits the proverbial nail right on the head! Evangelical Christians are completely, absolutely clueless as to what the real issue is concerning the case of Judge Alito being confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice.
NEWS BRIEF: "JUDGE ALITO: AS USUAL, CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS DON'T GET IT", Chuck Baldwin Live, January 9, 2006
"With confirmation hearings underway for Judge Samuel Alito, many conservative Christians are focusing on the abortion issue. In fact, many pro-life activists are hailing Alito as the man who would overturn legalized abortion in America. However, as is usually the case, most conservative Christians cannot see beyond the abortion debate to look at the bigger picture. Then again, myopia seems to be a permanent disorder affecting a majority of conservative Christians today, so why should things suddenly change now?"
Pastor Baldwin's lament on this issue mirrors our own: why is that so many Christians are spiritually and politically blind? Why cannot they not "discern the times" so they can clearly and correctly see the events and the leaders of the day for whom they really are? In this debate, Christians have allowed themselves to be so completely focused in one the one issue of abortion they literally cannot see the "forest for the trees"!
Pastor Baldwin continues:
"For the record, Judge Alito probably finds abortion personally repugnant ... However, that reality alone will not make much difference. There is a greater reality at work here that most conservative Christians deliberately choose to ignore: the Republican Party has no intentions of ending legalized abortion! Absolutely none!" (Ibid.)
Did you catch that "bottom line" statement? "the Republican Party has no intentions of ending legalized abortion! Absolutely none!"
Cutting Edge has been warning of this reality for some time now. We have posted several articles on this subject:
* NEWS2038 -- "MORE "REPUBLICAN JUDGES" PROPGANGANDA -- Bill Pryor is No Conservative" -- Guest Column by Kelley McGinley of Retaking America
* NEWS2031 -- "HELP PRESIDENT BUSH GET HIS JUDICIAL NOMINEES THROUGH CONGRESS"! (Remembering : Terri Schiavo was killed by Republican Judges - Republican judges provided the majority to legalize Sodomy and Abortion in Roe vs Wade)
The sad fact is that judges appointed by "conservative" Republican judges provided the majority vote in the key, watershed cases since World War II -- 1) Abortion, 'Roe vs Wade'; 2) Legalization of Sodomy, Texas case, June, 2003; 3) Adult Euthanasia, Terri Schiavo, 2005.
Not only has this Republican propaganda mantra of "Help Bush get his judges approved" an absolute lie, this current case of Judge Alito is simply insidious. By focusing on the abortion issue alone -- and it is not certain that Alito would really vote against abortion once on the bench -- we are encouraged to look right past the fact that the Republican Party has no intention of ever, ever ending Abortion On Demand. It is that simple. With this fact in mind, let us return to Pastor Baldwin.
"To the vast majority of Republicans in Washington, D.C., the abortion issue is merely a ready-made sugar-stick to hand out to conservative Christians every election cycle in order to keep them corralled in the GOP vote column. As long as a Republican candidate can claim to be 'pro-life', he or she can count on receiving sizeable support from conservative Christians. That simple statement, whether genuine or not, whether followed with any substantive action or not, guarantees that most Christian televangelists will spend countless hours pleading with their supporters to vote 'pro-life' by supporting the GOP ticket." (Ibid.)
Christian pew sitters must rank as the most gullible animals on earth, cursed further with the shortest memories on record. Repeatedly since World War II ended, American Christians have championed one political cause after another, have been disappointed in the results, but still come back to the same false trough one or two or three elections down the road. Politicians must love these type of Christians, and they must love the fact that such type comprises about 90% of all pew sitters today. And, they must love their numbers: 60 million gullible Christians whose votes are always up for manipulative grab.
Pastor Baldwin then lists a series of "It doesn't matter".
* "It doesn't matter that so-called 'pro-life' Republican candidates have had over 30 years to overturn Roe and are no closer now to doing so than they were when Roe was first decided."
* "It doesn't matter that not a single "pro-life" Republican congressman has introduced legislation under Article III, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution to remove Roe from the jurisdiction of the Court, which is the prerogative of Congress to do." Did you know that Congress can legally take the matter of Abortion on Demand away from the Supreme Court by assuming that authority for itself? Why, we should have had Abortion overturned decades ago!
* "It doesn't matter that after spending multiplied millions of dollars and electing hundreds of 'pro-life' Republicans, nothing has been done to overturn Roe."
* "It doesn't matter that the Republican Party has controlled the White House for over 17 of the last 25 years and, accordingly, has controlled appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court for all of those years (not to mention the fact that it was a majority Republican- appointed Court that passed the Roe decision), and nothing has been done to overturn Roe." (Ibid.; Emphasis added)
All that does matter is that, during every election, Republican candidates "talk against Abortion on Demand". How unbelievably hysterical this situation is, and yet this premise is taken directly out of the pages of the Satanic planning document, "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion". Listen to this incredibly accurate insight into the human mind, realizing that these "Protocols" were likely written originally in the early 1820's, according to several former Satanists.
"The principal object of our directorate consists in this: to debilitate the public mind by criticism; to lead it away from serious reflections calculated to arouse resistance; to distract the forces of the mind towards a sham fight of empty eloquence. In all ages the peoples of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for they are content with a show and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance. Therefore, we shall establish show institutions ..." [Protocols #5; reiterated in Protocol #10]
This single paragraph tells us all we need to know about politicians of both parties; they have established "Show Institutions" labeled Democrat and Republican Parties! They deliberately intend "debilitate" our minds and to "distract" us through "sham" speeches of "empty eloquence". We certainly have seen and heard enough of this type of speaking to last us a lifetime! You can just put the name of any number of politicians on both sides of the aisle that fit this description. Talk, talk, and talk some more, is the motto of the consummate politician.
But, focus on the key understanding:
"In all ages the peoples of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for they are content with a show and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance."
How silly and gullible too many people are, but especially Christians, who should be guided by the principles of the Word of God and the illumination of the Holy Spirit -- standards of conduct by which Christians should be able to discern good from evil, truth from a lie -- all based upon the actions (fruits) of the individual, not on his or her hollow, empty words. Yet, Christians continue to preach and teach that President Bush is a good Christian, based solely on his words to that effect. His actions are totally ignored -- See our table, "President Bush's Evil vs Good Fruits".
We also issued a series of articles on the subject of why Christians are judging President Bush only on his words:
* "Ye Shall Know Them By Their Words" -- Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 -- Part 4
Before we leave this section on Republican candidates pretending to be "pro-life" every two or four years, during an election, let us return to Pastor Baldwin:
"Even if Judge Alito would vote to overturn Roe should the opportunity present itself, it is almost certain that Chief Justice John Roberts would not vote to overturn it. Therefore, the vote to overturn Roe is 6-3 against-at best! In other words, we are not even close to reversing Roe v Wade. Not even close! However, none of this matters to most conservative Christians. After all, they can beat their chests, hobnob with Republican big- shots, raise millions of dollars from gullible Christians, and pretend to be 'pro-life' every two years from now until the cows come home without worrying about anything of substance actually being done. What a racket! Yet, the situation is actually worse than that."
What could be worse than Christians being so completely and so easily deceived?
"Worse than most Christians' gullibility regarding the abortion issue is the manner in which they give Republicans a pass on other issues of immense importance. It seems that all a Republican has to do to gain the confidence and support of the vast majority of conservative Christians is say he is 'pro-life' and opposed to homosexual marriage. His or her position on virtually everything else doesn't seem to matter."
Once again, Pastor Baldwin presents some really relevant "It does not matter" --
* "It doesn't seem to matter to most conservative Christians that President Bush has increased deficit spending beyond that of all previous administrations put together. Yes, you read it right: President Bush (with the aid of his fellow Republicans in Congress) is a bigger debtor than all 42 of his predecessors combined!"
* "It doesn't matter to the vast majority of conservative Christians that President Bush is attempting to accrue power to the executive branch at the expense of constitutional government, that he is championing extremely questionable, if not downright dangerous, legislation that could result in the dismantlement of civil and individual liberties."
Most Christians and most pastors, who champion President Bush's Christianity have never, ever read either of the "Patriot Acts", nor do they show any inclination to do so when informed that their "Christian" President demanded, and got, the kind of dictatorial powers which Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler wielded over their helpless populations. Facts do not seem to matter to such Christians; their minds are already made up and they do not want to be bothered with "facts"! In the intelligence community, we called such a mind, "propagandized"!
* "It doesn't matter that Bush is involved in the most intense nation-building scheme in post World War II history."
* "It doesn't matter that he has done more to open the door of illegal immigration than any president in modern memory."
* "It doesn't matter that he spearheaded (and continues to laud) the most expensive and most intrusive expansion of the federal government's role in public education in U.S. history."
* "It doesn't matter that Bush continues to promote ill-conceived trade deals such as CAFTA and FTAA which weaken American independence and sacrifice thousands of American jobs. " (Ibid., Emphasis added)
And, why do Christians care nothing about the things their President is actually doing?
"Because President Bush claims to be 'pro-life', conservative Christians give him a pass on virtually any and all other conduct."
How sad! Jesus correctly spoke of this type of Christian and Christian leader -- both are blind:
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (Matt 15:140
American Christians are stumbling blindly toward the climax of the Church Age, literally unaware that the "signs of the end" are everywhere, in your daily news. But most importantly, Christians are unaware that the prophesied political AND spiritual deception of which our Lord warned in Matthew 24:24 is upon us in full force. President George W. Bush leads the list of political leaders disseminating incredible lies as to who they are, and what their agenda truly is.
Listen to Jesus again: "Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?" (Luke 6:39)
VIII. Remember how the Illuminati loves to telegraph its planned punches through TV and movies? Get ready now for a TV Sunday night series entitled, "It Could Happen Tomorrow".
NEWS BRIEF: "It Could Happen Tomorrow", The Weather Channel
"What if a Category 3 Hurricane hit New York City? What if a major earthquake shattered San Francisco? 'It Could Happen Tomorrow', a new series from The Weather Channel, takes a close look at unbelievable acts of nature that, if they occur, could spell disaster in cities across America. Explore the possibilities and see what is being done to prepare and protect against these devastating possibilities."
These are the episodes now planned:
* January 15 -- New York City is hit with a Category 3 Hurricane -- NOTE: Isn't it convenient that New York City just installed a Hurricane Evacuation Plan?
* January 22 -- Dallas is hit with a Category F-5 Tornado
* January 29 -- Mount Ranier volcano blows up in a huge eruption
* February 5 -- Anchorage, Alaska, is near the epicenter of an earthquake right off shore, producing a West Coast tsunami
* March sometime -- Memphis is site of a major earthquake
* April 16 -- San Francisco is devastated by an 8.0 quake
* Coming Soon -- California is engulfed in wildfires
Keep in mind the following facts:
1) Scientists working for the Illuminati can create all of these monstrous natural disasters with their Scalar Electromagnetic Wave technology;
2) Enormous natural storms are recognized as being very effective "cultural change" agents. In other words, people will allow government powers over them in the aftermath of an extremely devastating storm that they would never allow under normal circumstances.
3) This plan fits in well with the "Mother Gaia is under stress" lie now being propagated by "Global Warming Experts" nearly weekly now. Further, the Kyoto Accords have just now gone into effect throughout much of the developed world -- only the United States has refused to accept Kyoto. Now, it is time to condition Americans that our Industrial Civilization is to blame for these terrible natural disasters -- so Americans will allow their government to accept Kyoto.
Since undiscerning citizens know nothing of Scalar Electromagnetic weather control capability, they are going to be stampeded into accepting Kyoto at some point in time. Major conditioning for Kyoto is now under way!
---------- New Articles Posted This Week ----------
* "MIGHT ISRAELI DOCTORS 'EUTHANIZE' PRIME MINISTER SHARON?" Is it possible? Could Prime Minister Sharon might suffer the same "Mercy Killing" fate as did Terri Schiavo! After all, Israel's Prime Minister is irreparably ill, is in a coma, is showing little outward signs of life, and is totally dependent upon artificial life support. Sharon and his family should be very happy if doctors now "get him out of the way" so life can continue for the living. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n2103.cfm
* "ARE YOU PREPARED TO SPIRITUALLY WITHSTAND A FAKE RAPTURE?" -- The Illuminati now claims to have the technical capability to stage the Rapture. They might just carry it out in order to throw extreme panic, confusion, and despair into the hearts of genuine Christians just before their beloved Masonic Christ arises. God just may allow it as a final test of His saints. Would you be Biblically knowledgeable enough to spot the deception and stand firmly in your faith? -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n2101.cfm
---------Conclusion----------------"Encourage him." Deuteronomy 1:38
God employs His people to encourage one another. He did not say to an angel, "Gabriel, my servant Joshua is about to lead my people into Canaan--go, encourage him." God never works needless miracles; if His purposes can be accomplished by ordinary means, He will not use miraculous agency. Gabriel would not have been half so well fitted for the work as Moses. A brother's sympathy is more precious than an angel's embassy. The angel, swift of wing, had better known the Master's bidding than the people's temper. An angel had never experienced the hardness of the road, nor seen the fiery serpents, nor had he led the stiff-necked multitude in the wilderness as Moses had done.
We should be glad that God usually works for man by man. It forms a bond of brotherhood, and being mutually dependent on one another, we are fused more completely into one family. Brethren, take the text as God's message to you. Labour to help others, and especially strive to encourage them. Talk cheerily to the young and anxious enquirer, lovingly try to remove stumblingblocks out of his way.
When you find a spark of grace in the heart, kneel down and blow it into a flame. Leave the young believer to discover the roughness of the road by degrees, but tell him of the strength which dwells in God, of the sureness of the promise, and of the charms of communion with Christ. Aim to comfort the sorrowful, and to animate the desponding. Speak a word in season to him that is weary, and encourage those who are fearful to go on their way with gladness. God encourages you by His promises; Christ encourages you as He points to the heaven
He has won for you, and the spirit encourages you as He works in you to will and to do of His own will and pleasure. Imitate divine wisdom, and encourage others, according to the word of this evening.
(C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
