---------- Inspiration For the Week--- "The things which are not seen." 2 Corinthians 4:18

In our Christian pilgrimage it is well, for the most part, to be looking forward. Forward lies the crown, and onward is the goal. Whether it be for hope, for joy, for consolation, or for the inspiring of our love, the future must, after all, be the grand object of the eye of faith. Looking into the future we see sin cast out, the body of sin and death destroyed, the soul made perfect, and fit to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light. Looking further yet, the believer's enlightened eye can see death's river passed, the gloomy stream forded, and the hills of light attained on which standeth the celestial city; he seeth himself enter within the pearly gates, hailed as more than conqueror, crowned by the hand of Christ, embraced in the arms of Jesus, glorified with Him, and made to sit together with Him on His throne, even as He has overcome and has sat down with the Father on His throne.

The thought of this future may well relieve the darkness of the past and the gloom of the present. The joys of heaven will surely compensate for the sorrows of earth. Hush, hush, my doubts! death is but a narrow stream, and thou shalt soon have forded it. Time, how short--eternity, how long! Death, how brief--immortality, how endless! Methinks I even now eat of Eshcol's clusters, and sip of the well which is within the gate. The road is so, so short! I shall soon be there.

"When the world my heart is rending
With its heaviest storm of care,
My glad thoughts to heaven ascending,
Find a refuge from despair.
Faith's bright vision shall sustain me
Till life's pilgrimage is past;
Fears may vex and troubles pain me,
I shall reach my home at last."

SPECIAL NOTE: Last week, we stated that we were going to post our newest article - NEWS1888 - on Monday night. In fact, this article did not get up until Saturday morning! Several factors contributed to this long delay. 1) This region was hit with a 2-day ice storm that caused more homes and businesses to lose electricity in this area than during Hurricane Hugo; 2) This article turned into a very long "study" of News Headlines since October 9, 2001; 3) Because we began to spot patterns of News Headlines, we spent time analyzing these patterns to uncover even more in-depth knowledge. Please take your time reading this study, as it demonstrates the truth of what we have been saying all along, i.e., our "news stories" have been mere exercises of propaganda, not natural unfolding of events. Thank you so very much for understanding. Only Cutting Edge could deliver this resource to you, for we have been posting 50-100 articles per day for almost 2 1/2 years. We believe this study may be the most important resource we have ever placed in your hands!

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------

I. Prime Minister Blair was "unexpectedly" cleared of wrongdoing in the Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction scandal and in charges of government duplicity and/or mishandling of the death of Dr. Kelley, the government expert in the weaponry of Iraq. When the "Hutton Inquiry Report" cleared Blair of lying to the people about Iraq possessing WMD, President Bush was cleared as well.

Seasoned observers in Great Britain expected the Hutton Report to be scathingly critical of the role Prime Minister Tony Blair played in the controversy of Iraq's WMD and of the way in which he treated Dr. Kelley. This inquiry began over one year ago, and was formed because of growing outrage amongst British voters over the fact that Coalition Forces could not discover any Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, despite exerting tremendous effort and resources to try to find WMD. Of course, we were told that we invaded Iraq simply to take his WMD away from him before he could use them on his people, on his neighbors, or on us by cooperating with Osama bin Laden.

At one point in the pre-Iraq invasion debate, Prime Minister Blair warned that Iraq not only possessed weaponized WMD, but Saddam could place them on missiles that could be "launched within 45 minutes"! Let us review some of the headlines that reveal the degree to which we were told that our very lives -- our civilization -- depended upon our invasion of Iraq to strip Saddam from his feared WMD. We shall utilize the in-depth study we just posted -- NEWS1888.

* 11/28/2001 -- U.S. Considering Using Small Tactical Nukes To Strike At Saddam's WMD - Middle East Newsline
* 1/2/2002 -- US Sends Vaccines To Israel To Prepare For Iraq Attack Using WMD - DEBKAfile
* 1/18/2002 -- Iraq Has Built Up To Four Super Guns That Can Hit Targets In Italy: Could deliver WMD warheads - nationalpost.com
* 10/6/2002 -- Iraq May Have 80 WMD-Capable Missiles - DEBKAfile
* 12/8/2002 -- Washington Gathers Own Evidence of Saddam’s WMD: Bush's inspection team consists of Special Forces from U.S., U.K., Turkey, Jordan, Israel - DEBKAfile
* 12/10/2002 -- Iraq Dossier Hints At 'Dirty Bomb' - CNN News
* 12/11/2002 -- Bush: U.S. Will Use Nukes To Respond To Any Iraqi Attack On Our Troops Using Any Kind Of WMD - Fox News
* 4/21/2003 -- US Delivers New Ultimatum To Syria: Hand over Saddam’s WMD First - DEBKAfile

On April 9, 2003, Coalition Forces seized control of Baghdad quickly and relatively effortlessly because Saddam ordered a tactical retreat. From that moment on, the United States and Great Britain controlled every "nook and cranny" of Iraq; we utilized this type of control to send out our own teams to locate Saddam's arsenal of WMD. Alas, we could find no such WMD. The stakes were high, for without finding WMD after years of strongly stating that Iraq possessed them, would render our invasion illegal.

NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. Failure to Find Arms a Hot Issue", By Greg Miller, Los Angeles Times, reprinted by Salt Lake City Tribune, 6/1/2003.

"WASHINGTON -- The top U.S. Marine commander in Iraq said Friday that U.S. intelligence was "simply wrong" in its assessment that Saddam Hussein intended to unleash chemical or biological weapons against U.S. forces during the war ... The subject of the search for banned weapons is becoming an increasingly uncomfortable one for the Bush administration, with several influential lawmakers this week saying they believe the White House hyped the Iraq threat or was misled by the intelligence community ..."

NEWS BRIEF: "Fresh doubts over Iraq's arsenal", BBC News, 6/6/2003

"A leaked US intelligence report has cast fresh doubt on the coalition claims that Iraq had banned weapons which served as justification for going to war.
The secret September 2002 Pentagon intelligence report concluded that there was 'no reliable information' that Iraq had biological or chemical weapons. It is believed the report was widely circulated in the Bush administration at a time when senior officials were putting the case for military action."

Now, this revelation is hot! Really and truly hot! A Pentagon report dated September, 2002, stated boldly that Iraq possessed NO Weapons of Mass Destruction! During this time period, President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary of State Powell were adamantly telling the United Nations and the peoples of the world that Iraq did have WMD and posed such a threat to mankind that we needed to invade!

This single fact tells us that Bush, Blair, Cheney and Powell were lying when they claimed that Iraq possessed WMD!

Now, let us return to the Lord Hutton Inquiry in Great Britain. Following the death of Dr. Kelley -- the foremost government expert on Iraq's WMD -- while he was under special government "protection", a Parliamentary inquiry was set up to investigate this "suicide" plus the lack of WMD discovery in Iraq. Lord Hutton vigorously grilled all witnesses, taking special delight in skewering government witnesses. Lord Hutton also released secret documents to the public that the Blair government considered sensitive enough to try to keep secret.

As the Hutton Report was about to be released, experienced observers felt confident that the conclusion would implicate Prime Minister Blair in deliberately lying to the people in order to justify the invasion. In fact, some stories appeared suggesting that Blair might have just 48 hours left as Prime Minister! But, immediately after Lord Hutton released his report, these observers gasped in abject horror! The report castigated BBC News while completely exonerating Blair! Who would have "thunk it"?

Let us quickly examine the facts concerning this Hutton Report:

NEWS BRIEF: "Blair cleared, BBC battered but 'whitewash' claims grow", The Scotsman, 29 January 2004.

"Key quote: 'I am satisfied there was not a dishonourable or underhand or duplicitous strategy on the part of the prime minister and officials to leak Dr Kelly's name covertly. (Lord Hutton) ... Even Labour MPs were taken aback by the tone of the report - some going as far as calling it a 'whitewash' ... A vindicated Mr Blair immediately called on Michael Howard, the leader of the opposition, to withdraw his claim that the Prime Minister had lied ... 'The allegation that I or anyone else lied to this House or deliberately misled the country by falsifying intelligence on WMD is itself the real lie," Mr Blair told the House, clearly relishing the sudden change in his political fortunes ..."

Just like that, Prime Minister Blair feels vindicated, and according to this official document, is cleared of any wrongdoing. This alleged wrongdoing included two elements: 1) how his government handled the Dr. Kelley death; 2) his claims that Saddam possessed WMD sufficiently dangerous as to warrant a massive invasion. In time, this Lord Hutton report may be viewed by the British public in the same cynical manner as Americans now view the Warren Commission report which insisted that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in assassinating President Kennedy. Just as the Warren Commission recreated physics by touting the "silver bullet" theory, so Lord Hutton recreated facts to support his conclusion.

So many Britons were shocked by this sudden turn of events, many of them did, indeed, begin talking of "whitewash". Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "Dyke casts doubt on Hutton report", BBC News, 30 January 2004

"Greg Dyke has said Lord Hutton was 'quite clearly wrong' on some points of law in his report ... He said he agreed with departing BBC chairman Gavyn Davies that one could not 'choose the referee' and had to accept his decision, but joked: 'The government did choose the referee'."

The Illuminati Loves To Conduct 'Investigations'

Bingo! Just like that, this mystery is solved. Now we understand as to why Lord Hutton's conclusion flew directly in the face of the very facts he so painstakingly assembled! To get the full picture, we have to go back to the endless "investigations" to which Bill Clinton was repeatedly subjected during the time he was Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States. Time and time again, his opponents were absolutely positive that they had Clinton nailed by the facts, only to see the official report exonerate him! Listen to Journalist David Bresnahan explain why Illuminists like Blair and Clinton do not fear investigations, but welcome them, even though the facts prove them to be "guilty as charged"!

"Let's Have An Investigation -- Clinton used investigations .... as a great means to defuse threats from his opponents ... he uses (investigations) over and over again to bury everything. Every accusation, every hint of illegality, is effectively ended with this tactic ... Clinton was really big on using the state police to do investigations and to look into all kinds of allegations ... They were all Clinton's people. In 30, 60, or 90 days, they would come out with a finding. This finding would state that they had found absolutely no wrongdoing ... Clinton is not troubled by investigations. He knows he can manipulate them to his advantage. He has enough supporters in enough places that he can make sure the investigations never get anywhere ... He doesn't mind the accusations when he controls the investigators." ["Cover-Up: The Art and Science of Political Deception". by David Bresnahan, p. 19-20; Emphasis was in the original].

Bresnahan has just described the Illuminati method of operation exactly! Neither Clinton, Bush, nor Blair fear any "investigation", for they control the investigators. These Blair opponents should not have been surprised by the sudden "U-turn" of the Lord Hutton report, had they only understood how the Illuminati works. Now, both Blair and Bush have been 'exonerated' of lying to their citizens about Iraq's supposed Weapons of Mass Destruction. Just as all the "investigations" exonerated Clinton, so the Lord Hutton will exonerate Blair and Bush of lying.

Blair and Bush may have been mislead or they might have been incompetent, but the Lord Hutton report says they are not liars.

If this is the scenario-- and it is -- then how are Bush and Blair going to explain away the fact that our forces have not discovered WMD, even though they have been seriously looking since April 10, 2003? The manner in which this explanation is likely to unfold is that Blair and Bush will deflect all criticism from themselves to their respective intelligence services. In the coming weeks and months, we shall hear of "intelligence failures" until we get sick and tired!

This line of defense will even trash the reputation of the Coalition Special Forces, for the news headline of 12/8/2002, stated that Bush had received part of his intelligence on Saddam's WMD from Special Forces of the U.S., U.K., Turkey, Jordan, and Israel! Those seriously-trained Special Forces soldiers were evidently as "deceived" by Saddam as the CIA, Bush, Blair, Cheney, and Powell!

However, neither Bush, nor Blair, nor any of their ministers, are off the hook quite that simply. Look again at the headlines about Saddam's WMD. Notice that we were threatening to attack his WMD with our WMD! Whatever our WMD would have demolished would not have been the real Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction, for now we know that Saddam never possessed any! All the Iraqis who would have died at the hands of our WMD striking against non-existent targets would have been killed in vain.

Aren't we glad that this news headline was just propaganda?

Further, even if Bush and Blair received false intelligence information, the fact that we did not know what we were talking about should stop any further invasions or attacks of any other "Rogue States", using Bush's fancy new "Pre-emptive Military Strike" doctrine! If he was this wrong about Saddam's WMD, how can we be sure of our intelligence about North Korea, Iran, or Syria? The answer is, we cannot be certain.

Therefore, Blair and Bush owe us an apology for the "failure" of our intelligence networks, coupled with an assurance that they shall abandon this foolish Bush doctrine! As we have repeatedly pointed out -- beginning shortly after this pre-emptive doctrine was first espoused, -- our intelligence has to be absolutely, 100% correct. Otherwise, a lot of people are going to die for no reason and the world may be plunged into World War III.

However, do not expect either Bush or Blair to apologize any time soon, nor expect them to promise to end this insane policy of "Pre-emptive Strike". We shall expect Bush to boldly continue to espouse this doctrine. We also should not be surprised to see them defending their position arrogantly. They probably will bring secondary issues to the forefront, chief of which seems to be the story that we were justified in invading Iraq simply because Saddam was a "bad guy" who killed his own people. Yet, we did not invade Uganda, where Idi Amin killed over 400,000 of his own people; nor did we invade Cambodia after the Communists killed as many as 1.2 million of their own people; nor did we invade Russia to stop Stalin from killing 20 million of his own people. The fact of the matter is that US foreign policy has never operated on the principle that we should invade countries simply because they have brutal, blood-thirsty tyrants.

One other matter needs to be briefly addressed. As we showed in our listing and analysis of news headlines in NEWS1888, American, British, and Israeli sources have been hinting that Saddam somehow moved his WMD into Syria, possibly into the Bekka Valley, stored in massive underground facilities. We believe this story to be as much a lie as the stories that Saddam had WMD stored in Iraq. America has been threatening Syria with invasion for over one year now. Is it possible that one of the reasons we have not invaded is that we would then be expected to discover these phantom WMD in Syria? Knowing that Syria does not really possess WMD should serve as a guarantee to President Assad that we will never invade!

We believe this entire episode concerning Iraq's WMD and the Iraqi invasion is exactly what we postulated late last year in NEWS1854. This entire Iraq scenario was deliberately scripted so that President Bush would, in the final analysis, be discredited because he invaded Iraq on the basis of his authority as a National Sovereign, while the "collective will" of the United Nations would be dramatically strengthened. In fact, if our situation in Iraq deteriorates very badly, National Sovereignty might receive a death blow, finally enabling the Global Sovereignty of the United Nations to become the law of every land! If this occurs, the appearance of Antichrist is enhanced!

II. Will New York City suffer a nuclear terror strike on February 2? In NEWS1883, we reported that several news agencies, including DEBKAfile, were reporting that Al Qaeda was planning to strike New York City on February 2 with an atomic device. When we reported this warning, we were well aware that this "alert" might be just as phony as the rest of the warnings our government has issued since 9/11. However, this date does have several occult numeric significances that none of the other previous alerts have contained, as we explained in NEWS1883.

While we do not know for sure that the City will be attacked with a nuclear device on February 2, we think people living in this area, or those who have family members in this vicinity, should take a "holiday" on Monday, February 2, and get out of harm's way. If nothing occurs, you and your family have just enjoyed a time of relaxation, but if the planned nuclear attack does occur, you and your family will escape death and/or severe sickness.

One fact is certain: The Illuminati does plan to destroy much of New York City with a nuclear device, as William Cooper states so forcefully in his expose', "Behold A Pale Horse" and as the Illuminati Card Game so potently demonstrates with this card depicting the World Trade Center Towers under attack, but with the headline above reading, "Terrorist Nuke".

Take precautions on February 2 until you can be certain the warning is fake.

III. When President Bush sent his Budget Proposal to Congress, he asked for such a huge increase in spending that his Liberal, Big Government inner heart was finally and forever revealed. Were Conservatives shocked, and were they outraged? Some were, to their credit. Let us examine the facts.

NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Budget Raises Cost of Medicare", Myway News, January 29, 2003.

"WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush's new budget will project that the just-enacted prescription drug program and Medicare overhaul will cost one-third more than previously estimated and will predict a deficit exceeding $500 billion for this year ... Instead of a $400 billion 10-year price tag, Bush's 2005 budget will estimate the Medicare bill's cost at about $540 billion ... Bush just signed the Medicare measure into law last month. While it was moving through Congress, Bush, White House officials and congressional Republican leaders had assured doubting conservatives that the bill's costs would stay within the $400 billion estimate. Some conservatives voted against the legislation anyway, and many of them are already angry that Bush has presided over excessive increases in spending and budget deficits."

Why should any Conservative be surprised, to the least degree? For years, we have been reporting that Bush is NOT the Christian, Compassionate, and Conservative person that his Public Relations campaign has painted him to be. In fact, in many of our articles since Bush became President, we have repeatedly stated that, in many ways, Bush is identical to Clinton! {Read Bush's Bad Fruits vs Good Fruits for full details).

Now, we see that he has ratcheted upward his budget, his deficits, and his Big Government. President Bush has never, ever been a true Conservative; rather, he has always been the committed Illuminist you would expect from a man who is a life-long Adept in the Satanic Skull & Bones secret society. Bush's vision of the coming New World Order is also identical to the vision of Bill Clinton, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Churchill, and of Germany's Adolf Hitler! We are just now seeing some of the obvious fruits.

We have reported on the reality on many occasions that politicians wear labels that are meaningless in the real world, but are extremely effective in deceiving the average undiscerning American citizen. Quoting from our archived article, NEWS1451, we wrote:

From Eisenhower to Bush, every supposedly conservative Republican President, including the revered Ronald Reagan, has encouraged growth of the federal monster and the erosion of our Constitution. Election after election, the conservative rank and file in Main Street America troop to the polls to vote for a Republican white-horse candidate. Surely this time around, they reason, we will get a president who will stare down the big spenders in Congress and stop Big Government in its tracks. But it never happens. We continue on our march to the Luciferian system.

Thomas Jefferson warned us that this pattern of behavior on the part of our leaders, over a period of time, is proof of a conspiracy! Listen. "Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers , too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery." ["The Works of Thomas Jefferson", Volume 1, p. 130]

Therefore, when we demonstrate that the Illuminati Plan has been moving forward since 1776, and with every President since Woodrow Wilson, we have just proven that we are systematically being led "unalterably through every change of ministers ... (according to) a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery." The words of Thomas Jefferson!

We encourage you to read NEWS1451 carefully, for it reveals our system of politics for what it has been since the early 1920's when the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) was established. Since that time, it has mattered not for whom you vote, for either candidate is equally committed to the New World Order and will continue the policies of the Illuminati no matter what his campaign rhetoric shouted.

However, the horror of President Bush's budget does not end here.

V. When you look at recent American history, you can sense how much in danger Bush's newly-found Liberalism on Domestic issues places this country. Given the lessons of modern history, can we expect anything less?

NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Pursues Big-Gov Nanny State", Fox News, January 30, 2004

"Governments that go to war almost always flex muscle at home. It should serve as a caution to conservatives, libertarians and limited government advocates that if history is any indicator, governments that pursue an aggressive, grandiose foreign policy have never held the limited government line at home."

This revelation is truly insightful, and very ominous. Whenever a president becomes popular with his voters because he is leading the country to a foreign war, he is very tempted to use his newly-found influence to lead his countrymen into a bigger, more restrictive government at home. We have also warned that, historically, we have more to fear from a Republican President than a Democrat President in terms of losing our liberties and freedoms. If Clinton/Reno would have responded to the 9/11 attacks with a demand for the type of dictatorial powers exercised by Russia's Stalin and Germany's Hitler, Christians and Conservatives would have marched repeatedly upon Washington by the tens of millions. However, when Bush/Ashcroft demanded the draconian Patriot Acts I and II, few Conservatives or Christians even spoke a whisper of protest. Yet, the inner heart of Bush/Ashcroft is just as Illuminist as Clinton/Reno!

Now, let us return to this Fox News article for more insights.

"Early 20th century journalist and World War I protester Randolph Bourne famously wrote that 'war is the health of the state'. The reason why politicians declare 'war' on intangibles like drugs or poverty is because a 'war' mentality implies that the problem in question is so serious that the traditional rules of interaction between the governing and the governed needs to be suspended. The greatest periods of growth of federal power in American history have come in wartime, or in crises like the Great Depression. These expansions are nearly always justified under the premise that national crises require more state power. They’re always sold to the people on the promise that the power requested will only be temporary, or limited to certain circumstances (see the PATRIOT Act, for example).

"Of course, the powers are almost never temporary or limited. Instead, government retains its new powers once we find peace, usually finds new ways to use them, then asks for more at the onset of the next war, a phenomenon historian Robert Higgs calls 'the ratchet effect'.”

Since World War I, the United States has become embroiled successively in a nearly continuous "Wars" or "Rumors of Wars", or a crisis of some sort. In every instance, the government has stepped forward with its "solution" -- more government authority that can reach further into our private lives, freedoms, and Constitutional rights. We are at the point where we have ceded the government the last of our liberties and protections against governmental abuses. Once the final planned crises erupt, the government can simply march in to topple our Constitution and the liberties guaranteed under it. And, we shall have only ourselves to blame.

When you also realize that broad advances in high technology have given government even more ability to intrude into our private lives, you can sense how desperate the situation truly has become! Government is now at the point in history that its steady encroachment into our lives is reaching critical mass, and doing so at the very same time as technology has sufficiently advanced to allow this growing dictatorial government to exercise the kind of control over citizens as foretold in the Book of Revelation.

"... And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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 13:14-17]

Technology is sufficiently advanced now to make a image of Antichrist seemingly come alive and to cause those people to be killed who refuse to bow down to worship! Technology is sufficiently advancing now to ensure that not one tiny transaction anywhere in the world will be performed outside the cashless economic system that will be set up before Antichrist appears on the world scene! Sufficiently advanced technology can now keep track of people's physical location anywhere in the world to just a few yards!

This combination of Sufficiently Advanced Technology on the one hand, and the Illuminati desire on the other hand to impose the greatest and most repressive dictatorship in world history will have devastating effects on every person on earth. Once you see the next major Urban terror strike and/or Israel annihilating her Arab neighbors, you will know the time has arrived for our officials to immediately implement all the Executive Orders, all the newly-passed laws, and all the redefinitions of terms, in order to topple our government.

In this next story, we see the typical lie of the Liberal that a budget item will cost less than their own projections indicate. Even Rush Limbaugh is outraged over this next revelation about President George W. Bush.

VI. President Bush is re-funding the despicable National Endowment of the Arts! You remember this department, don't you? They funded the Gay exhibit known as the Mapplethorp Exhibit and they funded the piece of modern "art" in which a Crucifix was dropped into a glass filled with human urine! Do you remember? Even though NEA apologists insist that Bush has brought in new directors who truly care about genuine art, we remain skeptical that this leopard can ever change its spots. If people feel so strongly about the National Endowment for the Arts, they should find private funding!

Let us allow Rush Limbaugh to expound on this latest horror.

NEWS BRIEF: "It's Not Working!", Rush Limbaugh, January 29, 2004, http://www.cuttingedge.org/news_updates/newsupdatemain.html

"On Thursday, I took two calls on the Bush proposal to increase the National Endowment for the Arts' budget. As part of his continuing strategy to peel off Democrat voters by growing government, Bush wants to force all of us to give the NEA $15 to $20 million in 2004 ... I can't explain why the White House thinks their strategy is working when it's clearly not. Bush '41' didn't have a strategy, as one caller mentioned when comparing the two presidents. Bush '43' does - and I'm sad to say it's taken the shape of outspending Bill Clinton on the domestic side. This immigration bill and the $400 billion (Now $540b) Medicare entitlement makes conservative voters feel taken for granted ... If you act like a liberal to get Democrat votes, you can't do something conservative when you win without losing those new voters."

To win re-election, President Bush may be thinking that he can move Leftward on issues because he thinks he will gain the Conservative and/or Christian vote by default, since there is no other candidate on the scene even remotely Christian or Conservative. However, the point to us is simple: these two issues glaringly reveal Bush's true inner heart, and it is not a Christian heart! No genuine Christian would ever, ever fund the despicable National Endowment for the Arts, nor would he ever lie to Conservatives about the size of the new Medicare program, when even his own internal documents showed that the true cost of the bill would be much, much higher.


VII. Skull & Bonesman Senator John Kerry wins big in New Hampshire after trailing by 25%! Once again, the Illuminati gets their man!

NEWS BRIEF: "Kerry Says N.H. Shows He Can Top Bush", Myway, January 27, 2004.

"MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - John Kerry said his New Hampshire victory shows he has the determination to go the distance and defeat President Bush. 'I'm ready to lead our party to victory', Kerry told The Associated Press in an interview after Tuesday's big win. Kerry, who trailed by 25 points just weeks ago, called his New Hampshire win 'a huge turnaround and an upset' ... With his second straight win, Kerry cemented his status as the front-runner in the race, with all the pitfalls that can bring. Kerry pronounced himself ready."

We have repeatedly stated that the Illuminati knows how to manipulate elections in order to get their men in positions of power! One former Satanist told us that, in every election, the candidate possessing the strongest Illuminati credentials wins. The only exception to this rule is the Domestic vs Foreign Relations factor. If the Illuminati feels that the agenda for the next four or eight years should be primarily Domestic, they will cause a Democrat to come to power; but, if they fell that the agenda should be Foreign Relations, they will cause a Republican to come to power.

Therefore, if Domestic policy is to be the primary focus from 2004-2008, the Democrat candidate will win! If Senator John Kerry is the choice of the "Illumined Ones" we shall see a Fall election between two Bonesmen - Kerry and Bush! Since this may very well be the case, we encourage you to read "Fleshing Out Skull & Bones", shown above, for it truly does reveal the bold occultism and the audacious Illuminati plan for the world.


VIII. The Gay - Lesbian assault on our country's religious values and personal attitudes continues unabated. Let us examine this reality from several angles.

NEWS BRIEF: "Same-sex marriages? Civil unions? A gay theologian thinks they're only the beginning", by Richard Ostling, Associated Press, reprinted by the North Country Times (San Diego), January 28, 2004.

"Americans are starting to seriously ponder gay marriage, legalized by Massachusetts' highest court, and civil unions, enacted in Howard Dean's Vermont and several cities. The issue of same-sex couples could affect the 2004 elections and is part of the Episcopal Church's ongoing split. But those moral innovations may be only the beginning. Why not legitimize threesomes and foursomes? What about bisexuals, who are attracted to both genders? And why not abolish marriage altogether? Such eyebrow-raisers are posed by Marvin Ellison, the ethics professor at the United Church of Christ's Bangor (Maine) Theological Seminary, in 'Same-Sex Marriage?: A Christian Ethical Analysis', published by the United Church's Pilgrim Press."

In NEWS1876 through NEWS1876d, we demonstrated how the Michael Jackson pedophilia case seemed tailor-made to further erode our national resistance to this type of sexual sin, using the proven technique known as the "Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan". In NEWS1876c, we showed how this insidious Six Step plan is aimed at destroying God's traditional marriage. If you have not read this four-part series, we encourage you to do so now, so you can see the terrible state that Western Society finds itself in and so you can understand how we have been slowly manipulated into this sorry state of affairs.

Here is how the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan works:

Step 1. Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a RESPECTED expert in a RESPECTED forum.
Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.
Step 3. But, the VERY FACT that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the SUBJECT
of the debate.
Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.
Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject.
Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to ACHIEVE it.

As you will discover when you read these four articles, this news story depicts our society passing from Step 4 to Step 5 in the process of destroying God's traditional family. This religious professor could not even present her shocking proposal if our society had not already progressed through Steps 1 - 4 in the major goal of weakening God's family. Now that most people are no longer shocked over "same-sex marriages", why not now propose such "moral innovations" as "threesomes and foursomes" and "bisexuals", and of "abolishing marriage altogether"?

Now that our country is on the slippery slope, we are going to go all the way to the Abyss, just as did Sodom and Gomorrah. What was that End of the Age prophecy again, from our Lord and Savior?

"... 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]

The Holy Spirit further inspired Jude in this manner:

"Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." [Jude 1:7]

Thank goodness we shall not have to suffer this vengeance from God! Listen:

"And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:" [2 Peter 2:6-9]

Can you sense that the time is approaching for the end of all things? "Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!"

IX. This Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan was in action in another area of Western Culture this week: ABC News hosted a homosexual wedding!

NEWS BRIEF: "ABC Makes A Mockery of Marriage With Homosexual Wedding!"

"ABC is airing Celebrity Weddings tonight (Monday, January 19, 2004) at 10 p.m. EST. Featured on this show will be a "wedding" ceremony between homosexual Melissa Etheridge and her partner Tammy Lynn Michaels ... Marriage between same-sex couples is illegal in the United States, even though a Massachusetts court has ruled that homosexuals can marry in that state within six months."

Our country is clearly at Stage 6 in this battle to preserve God's Family model! When TV companies who live and die by the Ratings are bold enough to show such immoral shows as this one, you know that a great majority of Americans support homosexual marriage, either actively or passively.

X. Sexual morality collapse in our Western Culture has grown so pervasive that even the Arts and Entertainment people are getting bold.

NEWS BRIEF: "'Porno play' coming:, By Brett Thomas, January 18, 2004, The Sun-Herald, Australia

"In an age where even the mundane task of opening email exposes millions of people to garish pornography, it's becoming increasingly difficult to shock theatre audiences with depictions of sex and nudity. Puppetry Of The Penis? Ho-hum. Famous TV stars getting their gear off in The Blue Room? Yawn. Genital mutilation at the Melbourne Festival? We've seen it all really.

"But acclaimed Spanish company La Fura dels Baus begs to disagree and its controversial new show XXX looks set to bring about a revival of red faces and uncomfortable squirming when it premieres in Sydney next month. Based on the Marquis de Sade's 1795 work Philosophy In The Boudoir, XXX is likely to be the most sexually confrontational piece of theatre ever to be performed on these shores. The show's four actors are frequently nude, engage in explicit simulated sex acts with each other and, apparently, audience members, while on-stage video screens display uncensored hard-core pornography."

Once cultural values are expanded to the point where simulated sex acts can be performed on stage, similar television programming cannot be far behind.

* SINCE 9/11 THE WORLD HAS CONTINUALLY BEEN SUBJECTED TO GLOBAL "WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS" - PROPHECY IS BEING FULFILLED IN DAILY NEWS! HAVE YOU NOTICED? Let us review the many, many instances of "rumors of wars" officially issued since 9/11, to see how thoroughly End of the Age prophecy is being daily fulfilled! We shall conclude with recent examples to demonstrate the sharp increase in rhetoric that should cause us to worry that the planned time for these threats to materialize may be getting close at hand. You will also be able to see "patterns" in which the same headline is issued many months apart, thus exposing our Mass Media as just skilled propagandists working for the global goal of the Illuminati -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1888.cfm

This study may be one of the most important we have ever issued. Use this resource well!

* Chapter 11 - Purpose Driven Apostasy: “The Music in the Church should be the Style the Target Market listens to on the Radio.” - http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1506ch11.html


Dr. Stan Monteith, Radio Liberty, is expanding his short-wave radio programming and would like very much to have you tune in! He will be at Radio 5.745 MHz Monday - Friday at 8-10pm, Pacific Time. While Cutting Edge does not agree with every doctrinal position of Radio Liberty, we encourage our discerning listeners to tune in, for Dr. Monteith generally does a good job exposing the Illuminati agenda that is changing our society in so many areas simultaneously.


---------Conclusion---------------- ""Perfect in Christ Jesus." Colossians 1:28

Do you not feel in your own soul that perfection is not in you? Does not every day teach you that? Every tear which trickles from your eye, weeps "imperfection"; every harsh word which proceeds from your lip, mutters "imperfection." You have too frequently had a view of your own heart to dream for a moment of any perfection in yourself. But amidst this sad consciousness of imperfection, here is comfort for you--you are "perfect in Christ Jesus."In God's sight, you are "complete in Him;" even now you are "accepted in the Beloved." But there is a second perfection, yet to be realized, which is sure to all the seed. Is it not delightful to look forward to the time when every stain of sin shall be removed from the believer, and he shall be presented faultless before the throne, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing? The Church of Christ then will be so pure, that not even the eye of Omniscience will see a spot or blemish in her; so holy and so glorious, that Hart did not go beyond the truth when he said--

"With my Saviour's garments on,
Holy as the Holy One."

Then shall we know, and taste, and feel the happiness of this vast but short sentence, "Complete in Christ." Not till then shall we fully comprehend the heights and depths of the salvation of Jesus. Doth not thy heart leap for joy at the thought of it? Black as thou art, thou shalt be white one day; filthy as thou art, thou shalt be clean. Oh, it is a marvellous salvation this! Christ takes a worm and transforms it into an angel; Christ takes a black and deformed thing and makes it clean and matchless in His glory, peerless in His beauty, and fit to be the companion of seraphs. O my soul, stand and admire this blessed truth of perfection in Christ. [C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions", Contained Within A.W. Tozer CDROM Library]
