VOLUME 2 -- "Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C."
"Every 10 minutes, you present another jaw-dropping piece of information!" - Pastor Joe Schimmel, Blessed Hope Chapel, Simi Valley, California
"This video is simply dynamite". -- Larry Spargimino, Southwest Radio Bible Church
"After viewing America’s First Beginnings, I could not understand how the next volume could top it, but somehow it has. 'Riddles in Stone' presents documentation that is overwhelming. The reality of hidden agendas, symbolism and the design around numbers, the two levels of knowledge for those inside and outside the circle and the plan that has been in place for many hundreds of years, reveals for sure “nothing is as it seems”.
"How do you put a price on the opportunity to possess such documentation in one concise volume, is a treasure and will be such a valuable resource for anyone. The quality of Volume II continues to remain at the highest standard and it is so evident the time and effort that has been invested. It is quite evident the Lord’s hand has wrought this." -- Charmaine
"My wife and I thoroughly appreciate the 'Riddles in Stone' and 'America's Beginnings' videos. We haven't watched them both in entirety and will need to watch them more than once to benefit from their enormous amount of insights, we believe that they will be of great help to us in our spiritual lives, to encourage us to pray that our hearts affections remain true to the Lord." -- Russ
This video is one of the top 5 best I have ever seen! I make this prediction with certainty after watching it through for the second time. Most of you will surely agree! - David Bay, Director, Cutting Edge Ministries
--------- Inspiration For the Week-------"Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines." Song 2:15
A little thorn may cause much suffering. A little cloud may hide the sun. Little foxes spoil the vines; and little sins do mischief to the tender heart. These little sins burrow in the soul, and make it so full of that which is hateful to Christ, that He will hold no comfortable fellowship and communion with us. A great sin cannot destroy a Christian, but a little sin can make him miserable. Jesus will not walk with His people unless they drive out every known sin.
He says, "If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love." Some Christians very seldom enjoy their Saviour's presence. How is this? Surely it must be an affliction for a tender child to be separated from his father. Art thou a child of God, and yet satisfied to go on without seeing thy Father's face? What! thou the spouse of Christ, and yet content without His company! Surely, thou hast fallen into a sad state, for the chaste spouse of Christ mourns like a dove without her mate, when he has left her.
Ask, then, the question, what has driven Christ from
thee? He hides His face behind the wall of thy sins. That wall may
be built up of little pebbles, as easily as of great stones. The
sea is made of drops; the rocks are made of grains: and the sea
which divides thee from Christ may be filled with the drops of thy
little sins; and the rock which has well nigh wrecked thy barque,
may have been made by the daily working of the coral insects of
thy little sins. If thou wouldst live with Christ, and walk with
Christ, and see Christ, and have fellowship with Christ, take heed
of "the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have
tender grapes." Jesus invites you to go with Him and take them.
He will surely, like Samson, take the foxes at once and easily.
Go with Him to the hunting.
---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
"All Nations Foretold Are In Place:!
I. Possible war with Iran continues to be the most dominant subject in the news this past week. The most interesting story was that a retired Iranian general has defected to the West and is said to be providing tremendously relevant inside information.
NEWS BRIEF: "Former Iranian Defense Official Talks to Western Intelligence", By Dafna Linzer, The Washington Post, March 8, 2007
"A former Iranian deputy defense minister who once commanded the Revolutionary Guard has left his country and is cooperating with Western intelligence agencies, providing information on Hezbollah and Iran's ties to the organization, according to a senior U.S. official."
As soon as I read this story, red alarm bells began to go off in my mind, for I remembered the tremendous number of bogus stories coming out supposedly from Iraqi dissidents and exiles in the four months prior to the actual invasion. These dissidents provided salacious details about Saddam's Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) capabilities, details which needlessly scared a lot of people, and which provided President Bush with the necessary public opinion support to launch his ill-fated invasion.
We have posted an article which details this deliberate campaign of lies from Iraqi "dissidents" and "exiles"!
In our NEWS1890b ("Bush/Blair Justification Of Iraq Invasion: Now Proven To Be Lies, Distortions, Exaggerations! Part 2 of 2"), we report this fact:
NEWS BRIEF: "There was no failure of intelligence: US spies were ignored, or worse, if they failed to make the case for war", by Sydney Blumenthal, The Guardian (London), February 5, 2004, carried in Daily News Updates 2/8/2004.
"Precisely because of the qualms the administration encountered, it created a rogue intelligence operation, the Office of Special Plans (OSP), located within the Pentagon and under the control of neo-conservatives. The OSP roamed outside the ordinary inter-agency process, stamping its approval on stories from Iraqi exiles that the other agencies dismissed as lacking credibility, and feeding them to the president. At the same time, constant pressure was applied to the intelligence agencies to force their compliance. In one case, a senior intelligence officer who refused to buckle under was removed."
Did you catch the pertinent sentence? "The OSP roamed outside the ordinary inter-agency process, stamping its approval on stories from Iraqi exiles that the other agencies dismissed as lacking credibility, and feeding them to the president." (Emphasis added)
Reports from nonexistent Iraqi exiles were created by the equally fake " intelligence operation, the Office of Special Plans (OSP)" and were used effectively to pump up public and Congressional support for his invasion of Iraq.
And, this "exile" propaganda surfaced just weeks before the Iraq invasion began!
Now, this story of the defection of an Iranian general might be perfectly on the level, but I bet his revelations strengthen the Administration case for an attack on Iran! With this thought in mind, let us continue the story.
"Ali Rez Asgari disappeared last month during a visit to Turkey. Iranian officials suggested yesterday that he may have been kidnapped by Israel or the United States. The U.S. official said Asgari is willingly cooperating ... Asgari's background suggests that he would have deep knowledge of Iran's national security infrastructure, conventional weapons arsenal and ties to Hezbollah in south Lebanon. Iranian officials said he was not involved in the country's nuclear program... "
Iranian officials also said that this retired general had been "out of the loop for four to five years".
However, other news stories said that this general came out of Iran with vital papers and maps!
NEWS BRIEF: " 'General took vital papers from Iran' ", The Jerusalem Post, March 9, 2007
"Former Iranian General and assistant defense minister Ali Rez Asghari left Iran using a new passport and pseudonym and managed to smuggle important intelligence documents ... the missing Iranian general was carrying documents and maps of Iran's military and intelligence infrastructure as well as information regarding the relations between the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Hizbullah and the Islamic Jihad."
This next segment contradicted the claims by Iranian officials that the general had not been in the loop for some years and was not involved in the country's nuclear program.
"In addition, the general was reported to possess information regarding the Iranian nuclear program as well as information about Iran's strategic military plans." (Ibid.)
Adding to my fears that we are witnessing another propaganda ploy along the same lines as the Iraqi exiles was the fact that this report came from a London newspaper, Asharaq Alawsat. The Iraqi exile stories also came mostly from such London sources!
This next story goes a long way to convincing me that this whole story may be a propaganda ploy. Notice that the London newspaper, Asharaq Alawsat, is owned by Saudi Arabia, one of America's firmest allies and a country willing to do or say almost anything Washington demanded.
NEWS BRIEF: " 'Missing' Iranian General Twists the Knife in the Tehran's Back", by Robert Stevens, Alphabet City, March 09, 2007
"And the NY Post reports this morning that Asghari was aided in his defection by 'a well-organized Iranian dissident group'...and experts say more defectors are on the way as opposition to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad increases within Iran."
Notice that dissidents and defectors are mentioned
in this article, tell-tale signs that this article is simply the
same type of propaganda campaign launched just prior to the Iraq
invasion, quoting "dissidents and defectors". Their information
back then is now known to have been totally false, and was created
by American intelligence agencies.
II. Stories about Iran this past week straddled both sides of the fence: Diplomacy and War.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. and Iran have been talking, quietly", By Maggie Farley, Times Staff Writer, L.A. Times, March 9, 2007
"UNITED NATIONS — The White House insists that the United States won't talk directly with Iran until Tehran suspends its nuclear program. But U.S. officials have been discreetly meeting their Iranian counterparts one-on-one for more than a decade, often under the auspices of the United Nations. Despite decades of tension, the continuing conversations reveal a slender swath of common ground upon which Washington and Tehran have built a delicate bridge: an interest in the region's security and resources."
" 'The point is that we think the Iranians can do a lot that will be conducive to peace in the region and good for them and good for their people', White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said last week. "We're going to continue doing whatever we can to encourage them to do it. And if they want to have bilateral relations, it is up to them'."
This article seems to indicate that officials from Iran and the United States have been "discreetly meeting" in order to facilitate a dialogue. When Robert Gates assumed the mantle of Defense Secretary, news accounts reported that Gates was a CFR man who strongly advocated dialogue with Iran rather than confrontation.
Remember that President Bush is a lifelong adept in Skull & Bones, which means that he is not a loose cannon who may make decisions which differ from the Illuminati Plan. Rather, he is simply following the script laid down for him. In that regard, I believed that the appointment of CFR's Robert Gates was a strong signal that the plan with Iran would not involve an all-out attack, especially an attack using nuclear "bunker buster" type bombs.
Perhaps this entire exercise is one of "Rumors of Wars" rather than of "War". Cutting Edge has long believed that "regime change" against Iran was unlikely because she is foretold to march with Russia against Israel in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39, as this DVD, above, clearly details.
Further, Russia's protection of Iran is firm and very public. If American technology overwhelmed and humiliated Russian technology, then neither Iran nor any other nation mentioned in that prophecy would dare march with Russia against Israel.
For this reason, we believe that, while a limited attack against Iran may occur, it will not cause such widespread damage as to destroy the Iranian government, nor will it be of such magnitude as to cause other governments in the region to lose faith in Russian technology and military prowess.
However, since the Illuminati Plan is to thoroughly discredit President Bush (NEWS1929), we believe a more limited attack might very well occur which will boomerang against the President, causing his complete political fall.
III. While we are speaking of whether America is really going to go to war with Iran, let us speak of the upcoming international conference of nations meeting this next week in Baghdad.
We have posted an article on this subject, which we encourage you to read before you continue reading here.
This new Headline News article is: NEWS2194, " 'Neighborhood' Peace Conference In Baghdad Starts Next Week! Will this conference forestall an attack on Iran? Or will it provide a 'fig leaf' protection so American forces can leave Iraq with dignity?"
Now that you have read our article, you will better understand these next two articles:
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq security meeting risky for U.S.", by ANNE GEARAN, Associated Press, Reprinted in SanLuisObispo, Mar. 09, 2007
"WASHINGTON - The U.S. faces choices and risks this weekend at an international conference in Iraq: Does it sweet-talk or strong-arm adversaries Iran and Syria, and can it talk to them at all without raising suspicions from its moderate Arab allies?"
In our article, above, we discuss the reality that this Iraq war poses huge risks for America's moderate Arab and/or Islamic allies in the Middle East. But, this Baghdad conference also poses a large risk for these moderate regimes as well. Pro-West Arab governments are really between the proverbial "rock and a hard place"; they face America's fury on the one hand if they do not continue cooperating with America, but they face the fury of their own hardline citizens on the other hand if they are perceived as betraying their own Islamic brethren.
One net effect the Iraq/Afghanistan wars may have on the region is to so infuriate the masses of Islamic citizens that they will overthrow the moderate Arab states which have supported America since World War II. Chief among these threatened states is Saudi Arabia. Can you imagine how much higher oil prices would shoot if Saudi Arabia is overthrown by radical Islamic militants?
The Bush Administration is currently picking a fight with the following oil exporting nations:
1) Russia -- now the #1 exporter of oil products (Surpassed Saudi Arabia late last year)
2) Iran -- now the #4 exporter of oil products
3) Venezuela -- now the #5 exporter of oil products
Therefore, if Saudi Arabia (#2 oil exporter) were taken over by Islamic militants, the Western world stands to lose the production from oil exporters #1, #2, #4, and #5. Oil prices would skyrocket right through the roof! Economies would collapse and the entire world would turn as one on President Bush and his "Dominionist Christian" policies! For the first time in American history, Christians could be so despised that we could be publicly persecuted.
Now, let us return to our featured article for more information on this international peace conference.
"... the gathering poses dangers for Washington beyond the appearance of a rethinking in policy toward nations it accuses of bankrolling or abetting terrorism and violence. The Iraqi government and Arab countries have broken into bitter squabbling ahead of Saturday's meeting in Baghdad, and the United States is in the middle ... Sunni-led Arab governments plan to use the conference to press for a greater role in Iraq for the country's Sunni minority. That has rankled Iraq's Shiite leaders, who believe the Sunnis are trying to reverse the Shiites' newfound power after decades of being marginalized under Saddam Hussein's Sunni minority rule."
"Looming over the dispute is alarm among Sunni states over the rising influence of Shiite Iran, in Iraq and elsewhere."
You can easily understand the reality that Iran stopped funding the Shi'ite insurgency in Iraq once the Iraqi elected government passed into Shi'ite hands. Saddam was supported by the Sunni faction, and it is the Sunni insurgency which has been most effectively fighting American troops.
Since Cutting Edge posts Daily News Updates every single day, we really know the news. Since the Iraqi Shi'ite government was formed, Sunni insurgents have targeted Shi'ite people for car bombings, mortar attacks, and suicide attacks, hoping to provoke the Shi'ites into retaliation, which would produce the civil war the Sunnis so desperately wants. However, Iraq's Shi'ite leaders, taking orders from Iran, have urged their followers to not retaliate. You see, Iran knows that a massive civil war could invite an even more massive American retaliation; and, this American counterattack could upseat the only Shi'ite government in Iraq in centuries. Therefore, Iran has urged calm in the face of the Sunni provocation, not wanting to see her hard-won gains unraveled.
In this Baghdad conference, I expect Iran to seek accommodation and peace.
This next article reveals that even the top American military commander seems to want this conference to succeed.
NEWS BRIEF: "General Petraeus says U.S. will have to negotiate with Iraqi militants", By Kenneth R. Bazinet, New York Daily News, March 9, 2007
"WASHINGTON - The general leading the troop surge in Iraq admitted Thursday the new offensive won't defeat the insurgents and said the U.S. will have to negotiate with militants. The comments by Gen. David Petraeus came on the eve of a rare security summit in which the U.S. will sit down with Syria and Iran ... Military action is necessary to help improve security . . . but it is not sufficient', Petraeus said. The general said political talks must eventually include some militant groups now opposing the U.S.-backed government."
"The envoys are expected to meet in the heavily fortified Green Zone, where the Iraqi government and U.S. leaders are headquartered... "
The general also dropped a huge political bomb during this news conference!
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. troop buildup in Iraq getting bigger", BY ROBERT BURNS, Associated Press, reprinted in SanLuisObispo.com, March 9, 2007
"WASHINGTON - President Bush's troop buildup in Baghdad apparently will be bigger and more costly - and perhaps last longer - than it seemed when he unveiled the plan in January as the centerpiece of a new Iraq strategy .... When Bush announced the boost of 21,500 combat troops, the Pentagon said still others would be required to go with them in support roles. Its initial estimate of 2,400 support troops has doubled and may go higher still."
"Maj. Gen. Joseph Fil, Jr., commander of the 1st Cavalry, said Feb. 16 he has requested additional attack helicopters, and Gates said Wednesday that other unspecified requests for extra troops were being studied at the Pentagon. Gordon England, the deputy defense secretary, told Congress this week that the total number of support troops could approach 7,000."
Again, the rhetoric is contradictory. On the one hand, commanding generals and Bush officials are saying that they will need more troops for a longer stay, but other officials are saying that the operation could be concluded by the Fall.
Once again, public rhetoric seems to point in all directions at once. We can only wait to see how events turn out, knowing only that Biblical prophecy foretells only more war in the Middle East and that the Illuminati Plan calls for President Bush to be thoroughly discredited.
"Secret Architecture of Washington"
IV. While the level of insurgent attacks intensified in Iraq, the Democrat Congress finally started talking about the only type of leverage they truly possess.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S.Admits : Iraqi Insurgent Attacks Intensifying", The Guardian (London), March 8, 2007
"BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Insurgents have sought to intensify attacks during a Baghdad security crackdown and additional U.S. forces will be sent to areas outside the capital where militant groups are regrouping, the new commander of U.S. forces in Iraq said Thursday. U.S. Gen. David Petraeus said the troop buildups outside Baghdad will focus on Diyala province northeast of Baghdad, a growing hotbed for suspected Sunni extremists fleeing the U.S.-Iraqi security operation in Baghdad."
This admission by the top American general in the Iraqi theater is quite shocking. Notice what he was saying:
1) Insurgents have intensified their attacks. News reports in the past several weeks have consistently painted the picture that the Baghdad offensive being conducted by American and Iraqi troops has really made a difference, lowering the level of attacks considerably. However those who have daily followed the war on our Daily News Updates section know that Baghdad has never been pacified.
At first, insurgent forces allowed American and Iraqi troops to enter the areas of the city which the American command had identified, allowing for a deceptive brief period of relative calm, but that time did not last more than 2 weeks. Then, the insurgents began to attack throughout the city, slaughtering large numbers of civilians, mostly Shi'ite. American soldiers also began to die in larger numbers, nine of them in one day.
2) Just as the general reported, above, many insurgents fled the capitol, but they did so in the four weeks before the Baghdad offensive began, most going south of the city. In fact, some observers believe it is possible that one of the reasons these insurgents poured south of the city was that they were planning to hit American forces at their Achilles Heel -- the two re-supply roads running from Kuwait to Baghdad. We have posted an article on this possible weak spot in American forces; this article is NEWS2176, "Are American Forces In Danger of Bloody Defeat In Iraq On A Scale of "Waterloo"?
3) General Petraeus admitted that these insurgents are "regrouping", which is a term that usually describes an enemy about to launch a new offensive, giving credence to our belief that this vulnerable supply line may be about to be attacked.
Most startlingly, General Petraeus admitted that his military forces could not bring peace to Iraq without the assistance of the diplomats.
"But Petraeus stressed that military force alone is 'not sufficient'' to end the violence in Iraq and political talks must eventually include some militant groups now opposing the U.S.-backed government. 'This is critical', Petraeus said in his first news conference since taking over command last month. He noted that such political negotiations 'will determine in the long run the success of this effort'.''
Congress finally began to debate the war in Iraq, along the lines they should have been taking all along.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. Democrats rally behind pullout from Iraq in '08", By Jeff Zeleny and Robin Toner, International Herald Tribune, March 9, 2007
"WASHINGTON: Democratic leaders in the U.S. House and Senate began a new legislative push on Thursday for the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq in 2008, coalescing behind a fixed timetable to end the war. The plan to establish a specific date for removing troops intensifies the confrontation with the administration at a time when Congress is scrutinizing President George W. Bush's request for nearly $100 billion in additional spending toward military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan."
Congress wields the Constitutional "power of the purse", which means that it can always cut off funding for a war which they strongly oppose. Of course, this rarely happens, for the President and his lower officials can appeal to the inherent patriotism of the American people, casting up the horrific scenario of American troops on the ground being slaughtered by enemy forces because Congress dried up the funds.
President Nixon and his National Security Adviser, Henry Kissinger, created this scenario as Congress tried to use this weapon to force American soldiers out of Vietnam. Nixon successfully defeated Congress' every attempt to force him out of Vietnam using the power of fund allocation. Of course, the United States still lost that war, with 58,000 men needlessly dead. How many of those men could have been saved had Congress overcome Nixon's stonewalling? After all, this political battle between the Nixon White House and the Democrat Congress occurred over a 5-year period.
President Bush's office wasted no time using this exact strategy.
"... the White House immediately signaled its opposition. 'It would unnecessarily handcuff our generals on the ground, and it's safe to say it's a nonstarter for the president', said Dan Bartlett, a senior White House adviser, speaking to reporters as he traveled with Bush to Latin America."
We shall undoubtedly see the same scenario unfold as it did during Vietnam: Congress will huff and puff and then retire to the sidelines as the President uses his patriotic appeal to not abandon the troops on the field of battle!
How many more American soldiers will needlessly die?
V. Cutting Edge has long warned that TV and movies were conditioning people to accept torture as a legitimate means of interrogation by government authorities.
About three years ago, we posted an article on torture being a focus on the TV series "24". Please take a moment to read this article.
NEWS1729, "Premier Episode of '24' Is Very Disturbing In Light of Current Erosion of Personal Liberty and Freedoms Since 9/11".
My emphasis in writing this article was to highlight the constant use of torture as a means to extract the information which government agents believed their prisoner possessed. My sub-headline read, "Severe Torturing Now An Accepted Practice".
Now, four long TV seasons later, and many types of tortures later, military interrogators are using the same type of torture tactics depicted on "24"! The old adage is most definitely true: "Monkey see, Monkey do".
NEWS BRIEF: "TV Torture Controversy", By DAVID BAUDER, The Star Online, March 9, 2007
"Demanding information, Jack Bauer faces a terrified man tied to a chair in front of him. Through a window over Bauer’s shoulder, the man sees his two children bound and gagged. 'Tell me where the bomb is', Bauer orders, 'or we’ll kill your family'. Silence. The prisoner watches as a thug kicks down the chair his son is tied to and fires a gun at point-blank range. He screams but still doesn’t relent – until the gun is pointed at his second son. Having gotten what he needed, Bauer whispers that the execution was staged."
"The scene from the television show 24 is haunting, but hardly unusual. The advocacy group Human Rights First says there has been a startling increase in the number of torture scenes depicted on prime-time television in the post-2001 world."
"Even more chilling, there are indications that real-life American interrogators in Iraq are taking cues from what they see on television, said Jill Savitt, the group’s director of public programmes."
When you consider the horrors of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, where American interrogators tortured their victims in ways designed to break down an Islamic worshipper, you are even more staggered by this fresh revelation, i.e., that American interrogators copied the torture scenes they viewed in "24"!
"... Tony Lagouranis, a former US Army specialist who questioned prisoners in Baghdad’s infamous Abu Ghraib prison and several other facilities around Iraq. He said he saw instances of mock executions like that in 24. Once, some fellow interrogators asked an Iraqi translator to pretend he was being tortured to strike fear in a prisoner – after they had just watched a similar scene on a DVD."
One real interrogator had a very dim view of Jack Bauer and his tactics.
"Retired US Army Col Stu Herrington, who learned interrogation techniques in Vietnam and is an expert asked by the Army to consult on conditions at Guantanamo Bay, said that if Bauer worked for him, he’d be headed for a court-martial. 'I am distressed by the fact that the good guys are depicted as successfully employing what I consider illegal, immoral and stupid tactics, and they’re succeeding', Herrington said. 'When the good guys are doing something evil and win, that bothers me'.”
You see, real interrogators know that torture does not produce "righteous information", i.e., information which is reliable and true. The victim will just tell the interrogator what he thinks the interrogator wants to hear, just to stop the pain.
But, "24" is not the only Hollywood production which has depicted torture as sometimes necessary to gain critical information.
"Examples of prime-time scenes containing torture were found on Alias, The Wire, Law & Order, The Shield – even Star Trek: Voyager. In one Lost scene, Sayid Jarrah was depicted holding a knife to the face of an adversary, suggesting that 'perhaps losing an eye will loosen your tongue'.”
"Human Rights First’s ultimate desire is to drive home the idea that torture by Americans should never be tolerated. 'We would never try to censor anybody', Savitt said. 'We would never tell Hollywood what to do, but we are trying to tell them what legal interrogation looks like."
I do not believe for one moment that all these torture scenes are just accidental, or are the result of a national collective angst brought on by the attacks of 9/11. I remember well posting news articles covering a speech President Bush made about three months after 9/11. The President urged Hollywood to get on board with his anti-terrorism package and to use its unique talents to persuade the American people to support his program, even though liberties and rights of the average citizen were dramatically threatened by what the President was doing.
In less than one year, shows began to roll off the presses, glorifying the Pentagon, the CIA, other government agencies and, later, shows like "24" began to appear. Given the popularity of this vulgar show, I would think that American citizens have been well conditioned to accept torture as a legitimate means by which authorities can wrest information from prisoners. What will these American "sheeple" think when the torture knife is turned against them?
VI. The average American cannot comprehend the disaster which has overwhelmed the average citizen of Baghdad. This next news story illustrates the unbelievable stress which this genocidal war has forced on the citizens of Baghdad.
NEWS BRIEF: "Marked for death: where tattoos are a barcode on lost relatives", by Ned Parker and Saad Abdul Wahab, Times Online, March 10, 2007
"Tattoos, once the domain of the low-life criminals, hard drinkers and gamblers of Baghdad, now serve a practical purpose for ordinary Iraqis. Middle-class men are getting tattoos to spare their families the misery of visiting morgues and police stations in vain for loved ones abducted by death squads or killed in a bombing. They believe that the markings will act as a human bar-code and help their families to identify them. At least 200 unclaimed bodies are buried every week in Iraq."
Can you believe this kind of practical macabre thinking and planning? So many people are being killed every week in Baghdad that at least 200 bodies cannot be identified. Therefore, people are turning to tattoos as a means by which a loved one can identify their dead body!
These people have lost so much hope that they expect to be murdered soon!
Can you know understand how it can be true that the average citizen throughout Iraq are now wishing that the old "repressive" regime of Saddam Hussein could come back?
Cutting Edge has long taught that, in these most deceptive days, you must look to the opposite end of the public rhetoric to discover the truth. Nowhere is this principle more appropriate than this Iraqi War! Please consider:
1) President Bush says that he ordered the invasion of Iraq to "liberate" the people and bring peace.
The reality is that this invasion has thrust the citizens of Iraq into an oppression of all-out civil war and wanton murder. The only "peace" these poor citizens know now is the "peace of the grave".
2) President Bush said that he ordered the invasion of Iraq so that Saddam could not use his WMD against his neighboring countries.
The reality is that Bush was deliberately lying. Saddam had abandoned his WMD program shortly after the 1991 Gulf War.
3) President Bush said that he only wants force "democracy" upon Iraq -- whether they want it or not!
The reality is that Bush has forced a Depleted Uranium genocide upon all of Iraq and surrounding countries at least 1,000 miles away from the battlefields. Within 20 more years, Iraq and Afghanistan will be unlivable, with the vast majority of its citizens dead or dying.
We can only read this news article and weep.
VII. The Bush Administration has recently been caught twice snooping on American citizens with their dictatorial powers! Remember, you and I are the targets of the Patriot Acts I and II and all other laws passed to "protect" us from the nasty Arab terrorists.
NEWS BRIEF: "FBI Criticized for Patriot Act Use", By LARA JAKES JORDAN, MyWay News, March 8, 2007
"WASHINGTON (AP) - A blistering Justice Department report accuses the FBI of underreporting its use of the Patriot Act to force businesses to turn over customer information in terrorism cases ... Overall, the FBI underreported the number of national security letters it issued by about 20 percent between 2003 and 2005, the officials said. In 2005 alone, the FBI delivered a total of 9,254 letters relating to 3,501 U.S. citizens and legal residents."
Imagine that! The FBI is using its vast new powers under the Patriot Acts I and II and not telling anyone about the extent to which it is spying on American citizens! We have been warning for years now that this was the planned result of these dictatorial laws passed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
This next news story illustrates that Homeland Security has also quietly begun using the Supercomputer on American citizens, after promising Congress that it had stopped.
NEWS BRIEF: "Homeland Security revives supersnoop", By Audrey Hudson, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, March 8, 2007
"Homeland Security officials are testing a supersnoop computer system that sifts through personal information on U.S. citizens to detect possible terrorist attacks, prompting concerns from lawmakers who have called for investigations. The system uses the same data-mining process that was developed by the Pentagon's Total Information Awareness (TIA) project that was banned by Congress in 2003 because of vast privacy violations."
" A Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigation of the project called ADVISE -- Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight and Semantic Enhancement -- was requested by Rep. David R. Obey, Wisconsin Democrat and chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. The investigation focuses on whether the program violates privacy laws, and the findings will be released after completion of the Iraq war supplemental spending bill, possibly as early as this week, a panel aide said."
This unwarranted invasion of privacy is not aimed at preventing terrorists from carrying out another attack on American soil, but to prepare authorities for the planned overthrow of our Constitutional government and the establishment of the kind of severe dictatorship described in the Protocols, quoted below.
In the guise of protecting our freedoms from Arab terrorists, the Illuminati plans to take away our freedoms. But, of coruse, the Bush Adminstration and Congress were just following a very old plan called "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion". (Read NEWS2128 to understand the role of the Protocols in the New World Order Plan)
What kind of "laws" is this portion of The Protocols foreseeing that will "withdraw one by one all the indulgences and liberties which have been permitted"? The USA Patriot Act and its attendant pieces of attached legislation will prove to be the final undoing of our liberties and Constitutional Guarantees. Mark my word.
Did you catch the kind of dictatorship [despotism] that the Illuminati has planned for every nation once they are brought under the rule of Antichrist?
Further, once they have full control, they plan on "wiping us out". You have been forewarned, and the handwriting is most definitely on the wall. The only question is, are you paying attention? Or, are you so engrossed in your investment strategies, football games, and other facets of your life right now, that you do not want to hear any truth, especially "bad news" truth?
Make no mistake about where this war on Terrorism is leading us -- straight into Totalitarianism!
VIII. Comedy Central depicts actress having sex with "God" -- and then kicking him in the groin!
Nearly every week on Daily News Updates, we include a sub-headline entitled, "Moral Collapse".
Articles in this section are intended to highlight the fact that the world cannot actually move into the New World Order dictatorship until Christian morality is overthrown. More than any other single issue, Christian morality seems to be the pervasive glue which holds all of society together.
Surely, no other barometer of the planned collapse of this entire Old World Order is as dependable and as sensitive in telling us where the world has really progressed down to the road to Hell than sexual immorality being portrayed in Mass Media and in the actions of individual people.
This next news story is going to "blow you away"! Notice that the venue for depicting this horrific scene is comedy! Psychologists have long known that people will accept controversial subjects more readily if they are delivered with laughter and comedy.
NEWS BRIEF: "'Naughty hottie' has sex with 'God' on TV: Comic Sarah Silverman depicted in carnal relations with the Almighty, By Joe Kovacs, WorldNetDaily, March 8, 2007
"Comedy Central consummated its season of 'the Sarah Silverman Program' last night by featuring the title character having sex with God, and then trying to brush him off after a night of lovemaking. Silverman was shown in bed with an amorous Almighty, whom she referred to as 'Black God', portrayed by actor Tucker Smallwood, a former NBC television director who also served in the Army in Vietnam."
"A partial transcript of the morning after the 'holy' sexcapade is as follows:
Surely, this is one of the THE most blasphemous depiction of God in world history! The only other blasphemy which comes close is the depiction of Jesus as a homosexual.
What does Bible prophecy say about men's wickedness at the End of the Age?
"But wicked men and imposters will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and leading astray others and being deceived and led astray themselves." (2 Timothy 3:13; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
This Comedy Central show is one extreme of "wicked men going from bad to worse"!
Let us examine another definitive prophecy of people's attitudes and values at the End of the Age:
"BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble, hard to deal with and hard to bear. For people will be lovers of self and utterly self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate, greedy desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive, blasphemous, scoffing, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. They will be without natural human affection, callous and inhuman, relentless - admitting of no truce or appeasement; they will be slanderers, false accusers, troublemakers, intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good."
"They will be treacherous betrayers, rash, and inflated with self-conceit. They will be lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God." (2 Timothy 3:1-4; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
When you read these prophetic Scriptures carefully, you will easily see how this Comedy Central show could air, even though it blasphemes God enormously. You will also see that this kind of wickedness does tell us that we are living at the very End of the Age.
Oh, yes, don't think that the people who wrote, directed and acted this show will escape God's judgment! Listen to this Scripture:
"So as always they fill up to the brim the measure of their sins. But God's wrath has come upon them at last, completely and forever!" (1 Thessalonians 2:16b; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Amen! Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

--------Concluding Inspiration ---------------"That henceforth we should not serve sin." Romans 6:6
Christian, what hast thou to do with sin? Hath it not cost thee enough already? Burnt child, wilt thou play with the fire? What! when thou hast already been between the jaws of the lion, wilt thou step a second time into his den? Hast thou not had enough of the old serpent? Did he not poison all thy veins once, and wilt thou play upon the hole of the asp, and put thy hand upon the cockatrice's den a second time? Oh, be not so mad! so foolish! Did sin ever yield thee real pleasure? Didst thou find solid satisfaction in it?
If so, go back to thine old drudgery, and wear the chain again, if it delight thee. But inasmuch as sin did never give thee what it promised to bestow, but deluded thee with lies, be not a second time snared by the old fowler-- be free, and let the remembrance of thy ancient bondage forbid thee to enter the net again! It is contrary to the designs of eternal love, which all have an eye to thy purity and holiness; therefore run not counter to the purposes of thy Lord. Another thought should restrain thee from sin.
Christians can never sin cheaply; they pay a heavy price for iniquity. Transgression destroys peace of mind, obscures fellowship with Jesus, hinders prayer, brings darkness over the soul; therefore be not the serf and bondman of sin. There is yet a higher argument: each time you "serve sin" you have "Crucified the Lord afresh, and put Him to an open shame."
Can you bear that thought? Oh! if you have fallen into any special sin during this day, it may be my Master has sent this admonition this evening, to bring you back before you have backslidden very far. Turn thee to Jesus anew; He has not forgotten His love to thee; His grace is still the same. With weeping and repentance, come thou to His footstool, and thou shalt be once more received into His heart; thou shalt be set upon a rock again, and thy goings shall be established.
(C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
