"Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C."
Breaking Good News!
"Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.", has just been awarded the 2007 Telly Award! Twenty years ago, this award was one of the most prestigious in the Movie Industry, for it recognizes excellence in TV and Movie production.
When the various Film Festivals came on the scene, the importance of the Telly Award was somewhat diluted. But, Telly remains a coveted award, for it focuses on technical quality aspects of the film.
Therefore, this award literally means that their judges recognized that this film was exceedingly high quality in scriptwriting and in all technical aspects of film making.
Now, we go on to the same Film Festivals in which we won awards last year for Volume I, "The New Atlantis". We expect to win those awards for "Riddles In Stone" this year.
Truly, the Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings is one of the highest quality documentaries in the Christian market. If you have not yet purchased them, consider doing so now. We have brought back for the weekend the special whereby, if you buy both "The New Atlantis" and "Riddles In Stone", you can buy them for only $39.88, a savings of $20.10.

---------- Inspiration For The Week----------"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee." Psalm 55:22
Care, even though exercised upon legitimate objects, if carried to excess, has in it the nature of sin. The precept to avoid anxious care is earnestly inculcated by our Saviour, again and again; it is reiterated by the apostles; and it is one which cannot be neglected without involving transgression: for the very essence of anxious care is the imagining that we are wiser than God, and the thrusting ourselves into His place to do for Him that which He has undertaken to do for us. We attempt to think of that which we fancy He will forget; we labour to take upon ourselves our weary burden, as if He were unable or unwilling to take it for us.
Now this disobedience to His plain precept, this unbelief in His Word, this presumption in intruding upon His province, is all sinful. Yet more than this, anxious care often leads to acts of sin. He who cannot calmly leave his affairs in God's hand, but will carry his own burden, is very likely to be tempted to use wrong means to help himself. This sin leads to a forsaking of God as our counsellor, and resorting instead to human wisdom.
This is going to the "broken cistern" instead of to the "fountain;" a sin which was laid against Israel of old. Anxiety makes us doubt God's lovingkindness, and thus our love to Him grows cold; we feel mistrust, and thus grieve the Spirit of God, so that our prayers become hindered, our consistent example marred, and our life one of self-seeking. Thus want of confidence in God leads us to wander far from Him; but if through simple faith in His promise, we cast each burden as it comes upon Him, and are "careful for nothing" because He undertakes to care for us, it will keep us close to Him, and strengthen us against much temptation.
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee."
(C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. War between Israel and her Arab neighbors lurched forward this week from a number of angles.
A. The Israeli government announced plans to begin to prepare Israeli public for all-out war.
NEWS BRIEF: "Israel to ready public for 'all-out war' ", The Jerusalem Post, June 1, 2007
"With Iran racing toward nuclear power and IDF preparations for the possibility of a conflict with Syria and Hizbullah in high gear, the Home Front Command plans to launch a publicity campaign to prepare the public for war. Within a few weeks it intends to inform the public about what people need to do in the event of attack."
An Israeli official then detailed exactly how seriously the government took this rapidly deteriorating situation.
" 'Our job is to prepare for an all-out war', Col. Hilik Sofer, head of the Home Front Command Population Division, told The Jerusalem Post Wednesday."
As a former military intelligence analyst, I take this announcement very seriously, especially since the term is not just "war", but "all-out war". If the Israeli government is now going to begin to prepare its citizenry for war, then war must be very close. Jerry Golden tells us of some of the "nuts and bolts" matters which much be taken to prepare the Jewish people for such a broad and dangerous conflict.
NEWS BRIEF: "It looks like war anyway you look at it", Jerry Golden Report, 5-31-07
"... in the Moshave where we live about 30 minutes from Jerusalem we have many bomb shelters, which are not being prepared. As I walked around and looked at a few I noticed that the pad locks were rusted because it had been so long since they were opened."
"In other Moshave and Kibbutzim most bomb shelters have been turned into a play place for kids, or Karate lessons, Aerobics and other social activities but certainly not ready to house the general public in the case of an attack."
"... the gas masks that all Israelis have will need new nerve gas shots as the old ones are out of date. Many have had babies since they were last issued and will need the ones designed for their children, so there is much to be accomplished to save as many lives as possible here in Israel if Syria and Iran unleash their chemical or biological weapons on us."
Since I believe Jerry Golden when he talks about these deplorable preparedness conditions, I am appalled that the Israeli government has allowed protection of the civilian population to slip so badly. If the Israeli government begins in the "next week or two" to improve these conditions, how long will it take to complete them? I know the new IDF Chief of Staff estimated some weeks ago that it will take two years to improve the IDF.
If you are an Arab strategist and/or leader, you must be salivating over this "window of opportunity" which has just magically appeared before their eyes. It seems to me that Islamic military and political leaders will want to strike earlier rather than later, before significant strides can be accomplished in either the refurbishing of the IDF or the preparation of Jewish citizens.
B. The Israeli Defense Force and the civilian leadership of PM Olmert continue to potray themselves as inept, ignorant, and not nearly as capable in the past.
NEWS BRIEF: "IDF commander quits over war failures", The Jerusalem Post, June 1, 2007
"Brigadier Gen. Erez Zuckerman has announced his resignation from the IDF ... Zuckerman, who commanded the reserve armored division that fought of the eastern front during the Second Lebanon War, first announced his resignation to OC Northern Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizencott and then, on Thursday, to Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi."
"Zuckerman, 43, whose unit joined the war in the last week of fighting on the eastern front, was also head of the Shayetet (Navy Commandos) and Golani and considered an excellent and promising officer."
In the past several months, a number of highly ranking IDF generals have resigned. Israel's enemies are right to view these resignations as a significant "brain drain", thus further reducing Israel's military capability.
This next news story just about "took the cake" for me, for it portrayed the vaunted IDF in exceedingly poor light. The implications of this statement are profound, and will not be missed by the enemies of the Jewish state.
NEWS BRIEF: "IDF Warns: No Gaza ground operation due to fear of war with Syria", By Amos Harel and Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz News, June 1, 2007
"The main reason the Israel Defense Forces is not currently recommending a major ground operation in the Gaza Strip is fear that war might break out with Syria this summer, IDF sources say ... Syria has clearly been preparing for the possibility of war, both through troop training and major arms deals."
"As a result, the IDF believes it must also be ready for this possibility, and excessive activity on the southern front would undermine its capabilities in the north. From the army's perspective, Syria is the biggest threat; the Palestinian front is secondary."
The Syrian Army is a mediocre army which does not frighten very many people. This reality is well known throughout the Middle East. Therefore, when the IDF leadership says it cannot fight both the Palestinians and the Syrians at once, the chances of all-out war simply skyrocket.
This statement means that the IDF is barely able to defeat Syria if she were the only one attacking Israel! But, if the IDF were to engage the measely Palestinians and then have to face the mediocre Syrian Army, she could not do it!
This is the stuff of which major miscalculations are made! I believe that the Israeli government has deliberately engaged in a concerted campaign to convince the Islamic leadership that her armed forces are weak right now, and that her politicians are weak-minded and incompetant. Once Islamic leadership buys this propaganda line, they are more likely to launch an all-out war.
This next new story is so important that we will consider the story from two resources.
C. IDF reserve officers sign a petition refusing to serve the army as long as the IDF refuses to take concrete, effective action against the Palestinian Kassam rockets raining down upon Sderot.
NEWS BRIEF: "Sderot: Rockets Keep Raining, Reservists Threaten Refusal", by Hana Levi Julian, Israel National News, June 1, 2006
"IDF reservists who live in Sderot say they find it hard to protect others who won’t make an effort to help keep their own families safe from the Kassam rockets fired by terrorists in Gaza ... The group of enlisted men and officers sent a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, published today in the daily Yediot Ahronot, describing their disillusionment with the way the government has ignored their families’ need for protection."
"The reservists end their letter by saying they do not want to serve and 'protect the rest of the residents of Israel', given the current situation in which 'we are abandoned and our dear ones are unprotected without hope on the front'.”
When IDF reservist soldiers and their officers lament that they fell "unprotected without hope on the front'”, Islamic enemies are going to believe in Israel's current impotence even more. But, listen to this story on the "refuse-nik" angle, for it really paints Israeli leadership in a bad light.
Related NEWS BRIEF: "Sderot officers say will refuse reserve duty", by Shmulik Hadad, YNET News, June 1, 2007
"Reserve officers, soldiers, sign petition declaring they will not do reserve duty until government addresses Sderot's plight. We have been abandoned by state, government being run by a bunch of clowns, one signatory says."
If Israel's government is being run "government being run by a bunch of clowns", then the Arab enemy must really be licking their chops in anticipation of a major victory against the hated Zionist enemy.
This belief is exactly what the Israeli leadership has been cultivating now for a very long time. Even Prime Ministers Sharon, Netanyahu, and Barak allowed transfers of heavy weaponry to the Palestinians. That reality brings us to the year, 2000. PM Ehud Barak was the one who abruptly ordered the IDF to quit Lebanon.
Israel has been convincing her Islamic enemies for a very long time that she is weak, vacillating and getting weaker by the day. Can all-out war be far behind?
II. War signs continue to escalate in Lebanon
A. The war in Lebanon between the Lebanese regular Army and extremist Islamic fighters continued this week, with the Army said to be planning to storm the refugee camp.
NEWS BRIEF: "Lebanese army poised to storm refugee camp", The Independent, 01 June 2007
"Under an artillery cover, dozens of Lebanese army tanks and armour massed outside a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon today, apparently poised to storm Islamic militants hiding inside. About 50 armoured carriers and tanks massed at the northern edge of the camp and drove toward ... But it was not clear whether they were already making a push."
"Plumes of smoke rose out of the Nahr el-Bared camp outside Tripoli where Fatah Islam militants have been hiding in a 13-day siege by the Lebanese army. The concentrated bombardment began in the morning, targeting all parts of the camp. Sporadic gunfire exchanges have continued daily since a truce halted three days of heavy fighting."
If the Lebanese Army is having this much trouble dispatching a group of poorly armed Palestinian fighters, they stand absolutely no change against the Hezbullah which fought the IDF to a standstill last July - August, during the 33-day war.
If all-out fighting does occur between Hamas and Israel, and if Hezbullah wants to join in, the Lebanese Army will know that it had better not intervene. Besides which, the Islamic soldiers comprising the Lebanese Army will likely not want to intervene against their brethren when these brethren are fighting the destroy hated Israel.
Abruptly, the United Nations Security Council voted to convene an international criminal tribunal to investigate the assassination of Former Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri. This criminal proceeding could add to the spark of war already in the region, because Syria is contending that this proceeding is directly aimed at her. Iran is supporting Syria on this most volatile issue.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.N. tribunal to prosecute assassins of Lebanon's PM Hariri", Houston Chronicle, May 31, 2007
"UNITED NATIONS — A sharply divided U.N. Security Council voted Wednesday to establish an international criminal tribunal to prosecute the masterminds of the 2005 suicide-bomb assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 22 others."
"The vote will lead to the creation of the first U.N.-backed criminal tribunal in the Middle East, raising expectations that Hariri's killers will be held accountable. But that has stoked fears among Lebanese authorities and some council members that supporters of Syria — which has been linked to the assassination — will plunge Lebanon's fledgling democracy into a new round of internal strife."
"The U.N. resolution, which will take effect June 10, was adopted by a vote of 10 to 0 in the 15-nation council. China, Indonesia, Qatar, Russia and South Africa abstained from the vote, saying that it bypassed the Lebanese parliament's constitutional role in approving international agreements."
Predictably, Syria denounced this investigative panel.
NEWS BRIEF: "Syria warns of trouble over Hariri tribunal", By Steven Edwards, The Ottawa Citizen, Canada.com, May 31, 2007
"UNITED NATIONS - In a challenge to Syria, the
United Nations Security Council yesterday voted to establish a special
tribunal that would try suspects in the 2005 assassination of former
Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri ... Preliminary findings of
a UN commission investigating Mr. Hariri's murder points an accusatory
finger at top Syrian officials. Damascus denies any involvement,
but Mr. Hariri, 60, had opposed Syria's dominating presence in Lebanon
... in Damascus, a government statement said the Security Council
action could plunge Lebanon into further instability. 'Setting up
the court under Chapter 7 violates the sovereignty of Lebanon and
could cause the situation there to become worse', the government
said in a statement."
Lebanese security forces suddenly detained a Syrian double agent whose task it was to create violence and upheaval if the UN voted to create this international tribunal.
NEWS BRIEF: "Boost for Assad’s drive to derail UN Hariri tribunal resolution", DEBKAfile Intelligence, June 1, 2007
"The UN Security Council voted Wednesday, May 30, by 10 to 5 abstentions to establish an international court to prosecute those responsible for the 2005 murder of former Lebanese PM Rafiq Hariri ... The measure was past (sic) at the Lebanese government’s request in the teeth of fierce resistance from Syrian president Bashar Assad who fears his close relatives will end up in the dock."
"... a double agent for Syrian military intelligence and al Qaeda, a Saudi national, was detained in Beirut Tuesday, May 29. A specialist in orchestrating terrorist operations, his mission was part of Damascus’ preparations to loose mayhem should the UN Security Council create the Hariri tribunal."
This next segment clearly reports that this tribunal will escalate already high war tensions in the region.
"The UN resolution is also expected to raise war tensions on Israel’s Lebanese and Syrian frontiers. Hizballah has been well primed with spanking new rockets and its contingents have advanced right up to the Israeli border .... transport minister Shaul Mofaz, a former defense minister, affirmed Wednesday, May 30, that Hizballah has returned to its old pre-war positions and its units are dug in deep close to the border. The damaged bunkers of last years Lebanon War have, in other words, been repaired."
III. As we have been saying for some time, Lebanon has been engulfed in a maelstrom of terrorism which threatens to engulf the entire Middle East in war.
NEWS BRIEF: "Shadow
of Iraq jihad falls over Lebanon", by By
"BEIRUT – Jihadists battling the Lebanese army in north Lebanon were either on their way to or from Iraq, Palestinian political sources believe, a sign that the shadow of Sunni militancy there has started to fall over Arab countries nearby. Many of the Fatah al-Islam militants had originally come to Lebanon to train for Iraq, the main front for al Qaeda in its battle with the United States ... Some had already fought there."
"Some of the jihadists had arrived in Lebanon for training at bases of Fatah Uprising, a Syrian-backed Palestinian faction, Palestinian sources said. But the foreigners soon overwhelmed their hosts and took over their main base at Nahr al-Bared camp. Like the 11 other Palestinian camps in Lebanon, Nahr al-Bared is an autonomous enclave beyond the state's control. The presence of camps off limits to the Lebanese army partly explain why jihadists have picked Lebanon as a new base. 'The state itself suffers from security deficiency,' said Yasser el-Sirry, a London-based Islamist condemned to death in Egypt."
This segment verifies what we have been saying about
the Lebanese Army since the beginning of this fighting. The Army
is weak and cannot take on much of an enemy. If the all-out fighting
many are expecting erupts within Israel, and Hezbullah strikes from
across the Israeli border, do not expect the Lebanese Army to try
to stop them.
IV. Signs of an impending American defeat in Iraq continued to abound this past week.
A. When a top American commanders revealed that he had been authorized to seek a peace deal directly with the Insurgents, the handwriting was on the wall that this action was symptomatic of defeat on this awful war.
NEWS BRIEF: "US commanders talking to Iraqi militants about cease-fires", Boston Herald, May 31, 2007
"WASHINGTON - U.S. military commanders are talking with Iraqi militants about cease-fires and other arrangements to try to stop the violence ... Lt. Gen. Raymond Odierno said commanders at all levels are being empowered to reach out to militants, tribes, religious leaders and others in the country that has been gripped by violence from a range of fronts including insurgents, sectarian rivals and common criminals."
When the United States government authorizes its military commanders at "all levels" to deal with small level party chieftains and "common criminals" in order to forge a ceasefire, the handwriting of defeat is on the wall.
"We are talking about cease-fires, and maybe signing some things that say they won’t conduct operations against the government of Iraq or against coalition forces.," Odierno told Pentagon reporters in a video conference from Baghdad .."
This next story illustrates the reality "on the
ground", where insurgents are considering this new tactic a
"big victory" for the insurgency and a corresponding sign
of weakness on the part of American forces.
NEWS BRIEF: "Hear terrorist call talk of cease-fire 'great achievement' ", World Net Daily, May 31, 2007
"Earlier today, WND talked with Mideast terror leaders who deemed Washington's announcement of attempting to reach a cease-fire arrangement with Iraqi militants a "big victory" for the insurgency and a sign the U.S. now recognizes the legitimacy of terrorist groups ..."
The rest of this story is in video format, and we encourage you to listen to it, to see how excited the Islamic fighter is today over the defeat of the American "Great Satan" in Iraq and the weakness of the Israeli Army and government today.
These twin miscalculations is the stuff of which huge wars are made.
B. After America and Iran concluded their direct talks in Baghdad on May 28, signs began to break that President Bush was, indeed, looking to Tehran as a "partner for peace" in Iraq.
NEWS BRIEF: "British considering Iranian help in Iraq hostage hunt for captured British", Khaleezi Times News, 1 June 2007
"LONDON - London is considering approaching Teheran for help in finding five Britons kidnapped in Baghdad ... Top Iraqi officials said they were presuming that the kidnap gang was a rogue faction of the Mahdi army loyal to the radical Shia cleric Moqtada Al Sadr ... Well-placed British officials reckon the Mahdi army is made up of different groups, not all of which are under Sadr’s influence..."
"Secret rogue cells in the militia are known to have links with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, though the unnamed officials also said these could operate without Iranian help ... ‘The lack of organisation and discipline’ within the Mahdi army has allowed the Iranians to move in and bring some of Sadr’s fighters under their control ... They (the Iranians) want to show the United States that they have influence over the Mahdi army, and that the United States must come to them for help'."
The Iranians can clearly see that the Bush Administration needs them more than they need the administration. This belief is clearly seen in this next article.
NEWS BRIEF: "US cannot help seeking Iran's assistance to rid itself of Iraq quagmire", Islamic Republic News Agency, May 25, 2007
"Chancellor of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Commanders Training University and Vice-chancellor of IRGC's Imam Hussain University in Tehran said here Friday US has no way to get rid of the dead-end and quagmire it is caught in Iraq, unless it seeks Iran's assistance."
"The IRGC Commander reiterated, 'The security of the Persian Gulf can only be secured relying on cooperation between Iran and the regional countries'."
Perhaps one of the most shocking instances of America needing Iran's help to extricate itself from Iraq came from a news story which we cover in full, below, in Paragraph VIII. While we cover this article in full in this paragraph, let us examine one pertinent quote from it now.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush reverts to Plan B-H", by David Ignatius, Indy Star.com, June 1, 2007
White House officials hope that by embracing Baker-Hamilton,
they can begin to build out from a new center. The goal is a policy
that has broad enough support that it could last into the next administration.
"If Tehran takes that step, then Plan B-H may be for real.
"What's needed is time: Iran's deputy foreign minister, Abbas Araghchi, seemed to recognize this when he told the Financial Times that although he favored a plan for eventual withdrawal of U.S. troops, "immediate withdrawal could lead to chaos, civil war, could turn Iraq into a failed state. This is a fact. No one is asking for immediate withdrawal of foreign forces from Iraq." Syria's foreign minister, Walid al-Moallem, told me last December that a quick U.S. withdrawal would be "immoral." But do U.S. politicians agree? We'll find out this summer."
Since President Bush is now cozying up to Iran in order to solve his disaster in Iraq, is it time to bring back that controversial article we posted several weeks ago?
NEWS2209 - "Did President Bush Order The Invasion of Iraq -- In Part -- In Order To Defeat Iran's Enemies For Her?"
C. Security breakdown signs started popping up again this week.
NEWS BRIEF: "Rogue police may have snatched British security guards and analyst in Iraq", by GERRI PEEV, Political Correspondent, Scotsman, 30 May 2007
"A DESPERATE hunt is under way for five Britons who were kidnapped in Baghdad yesterday, amid growing speculation that it was an 'inside job' by rogue Iraqi police officers. Four of the group are private security guards working for the fifth man, a visiting computer analyst at Iraq's finance ministry. They were snatched by armed men, some of whom were wearing police uniforms of the feared commandos from the Shia-controlled ministry, just outside the heavily fortified Green Zone."
Notice that this bold kidnapping occurred "just outside the heavily fortified Green Zone."!
Just as I stated earlier about the nearly daily mortar barrages against the Green Zone, when such attacks can be successfully carried out against the most important nerve center of operations for the American military, the minimal security necessary to win this war is lost.
These kidnappers were brazen enough to capture five British security guards right outside the Green Zone! Now, notice in this next segment that these kidnappers were bold enough to drive up in a caravan!
"Major-General Abdul-Karim Khalaf, the interior ministry spokesman, said the abduction was carried out by men wearing police uniforms who showed up at the finance ministry in 19 four-wheel drive vehicles. He said the kidnappers drove off toward Sadr City, the Mahdi army's Shiite stronghold in north-eastern Baghdad."
NEWS BRIEF: "Shells rock Baghdad's Green Zone again", By Robert H. Reid, The Associated Press, The Denver Post, May 22, 2007
"Baghdad, Iraq - Several mortar shells hit the U.S.-controlled Green Zone on Monday, one striking the Iraqi parliament building ... the latest in near daily barrages on the nerve center of the U.S. mission and Iraqi government that underline the country's tenuous security. "
Did you know that the Green Zone is being hit nearly daily with mortar barrages? The Green Zone (Coalition HQ) used to be considered the most secure place in Iraq and one of the most secure places on Planet Earth.
Yet, since President Bush began his "surge" program, security in and around the Green Zone has become increasingly dangerous. As this news story segment says, "underline the country's tenuous security. "
Tenuous security is the theme of this newsletter segment, and so this story fits perfectly.
V. As war signs escalate in the Middle East, President Bush issued a little-known Executive Order which gives the President extreme powers in the event of almost any kind of emergency imaginable.
While we report on this issue, below, we are curious as to the reason for this E.O., since these powers have already been given in Patriot Act II.
NEWS BRIEF: "President
Bush's Emergency detention plan: 'This way
to the camps!'
"Halliburton's former engineering and construction subsidiary has a contingency contract with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the event of a national emergency ... President Bush recently signed a little-reported National Security and Homeland Security Directive granting extraordinary powers to the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight."
"ICE spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback told Corsi the primary intent of the contract was to build temporary detention facilities that could be used in the event of a mass migration crisis, but she confirmed the facilities could be employed in national emergencies, including natural disasters."
"... the chief executive would have the authority to direct "National Essential Functions" of all federal state, local, territorial and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations in the event of a national emergency.
"The directive loosely defines 'catastrophic emergency' as 'any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy or government functions'."
President Bush evidently did not believe that the Patriot Act II gave him the scope of the powers he needed to fully dissolve our Constitution and suspend our liberties. In order to make the transition to full and complete dictatorship, the President must have needed the power contained within this Executive Order.
VII. As President Bush concentrates increasing numbers of naval ships in the small Persian Gulf, a story appears which illustrates the danger these forces are in.
Remember, my experience in U.S. Army Intelligence taught me that, whenever you read of a new technology or new weapon on which a government is working, that government has owned that weapon or that technology for at least 10 years.
NEWS BRIEF: "Beijing may be trying to develop the capability to destroy entire U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups in the Pacific Ocean", By MARTIN SIEFF, UPI Senior News Analyst, <ay 24, 2007
"WASHINGTON, May 24 (UPI) -- A new report by a leading U.S. military expert on China raises the disturbing possibility that Beijing may be trying to develop the capability to destroy entire U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups in the Pacific Ocean by targeting them with nuclear-armed ICBMs. "
"... Defense News reported that Wortzel in his paper has concluded the Chinese have made major strides in their capabilities of maneuvering and directing nuclear warhead re-entry vehicles. And this has already brought them close to having the ability to destroy U.S. carrier groups out in the vastness of the Pacific."
" ... the Wortzel report warns that China has been working on an infrared targeting system for the Dong Feng 21 medium-range ballistic missile that could give it the capability to zero in on U.S. warships."
The emphasis of this news report is on the Chinese ICBM. However, China has possessed the capability of exploding a nuclear weapon above an American carrier group for almost a decade now! As we reported in NEWS1449, "Has Russian Technology Doomed US Navy In This Upcoming Third World War? China Has These Russian Weapons"
Quoting from this report, posted in October, 2000:
"Despite the Pentagon's development of a new generation of hypersonic missile, the U.S. is still a decade behind Russia in high-speed cruise-missile design ... Russia currently deploys and exports the supersonic SS-N-22 Moskit cruise missile, NATO codenamed 'Sunburn'. The SS-N-22 is considered the most lethal anti-ship missile in the world, and flies at over 2.5 times the speed of sound only a few feet from the surface of the water." [This speed amounts to almost 1,700 miles per hour, or 28 miles per minute]."
"The Sunburn missile has been sold to China. The SS-N-22s are part of a recent Chinese purchase of two Sovremenny-class destroyers. Each warship carries two quad SS-N-22 launchers providing eight missiles per destroyer. According to U.S. Navy documentation, each Sunburn missile can be armed with a nuclear warhead equal to over 200,000 tons of TNT. News reports of nuclear warheads on the new Chinese anti-ship missiles were first published in WorldNetDaily in 1999."
"The Sunburn combines a Mach 2.5 speed with a very low-level flight pattern that uses violent end maneuvers to throw off defenses. After detecting the Moskit, the U.S. Navy Phalanx point defense system may have only 2.5 seconds to calculate a fire solution -- not enough time before the devastating impact of a 750-lb. warhead."
But, another horror to this Sunburn missile is that it can be outfitted with a nuclear warhead.
"Triplett also openly charged the missiles arming the new warships are nuclear-tipped. Each warhead is six times more powerful than the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima,' said Triplett. 'The new missiles are designed specifically to destroy American carriers and Aegis cruisers with a single nuclear blast'."
With one blast from a Sunburn hypersonic missile, exploded above an American carrier group, can wipe out an entire carrier group! Not only has China deployed this lethal anti-ship missile, but Russia has given it to Iran!
The entire fleet of American warships now deployed in the Persian Gulf is "sitting ducks" should the Russians fire nuclear-tipped Sunburn missiles at them. But, even a Sunburn missile attack utilizing conventional warheads can sink the entire Persian Gulf fleet!
Cutting Edge has warned repeatedly that the proper military procedure would be to disperse our forces, not to concentrate them in the "bathtub" called the Persian Gulf! (Click here to see a map of the Middle East)
VIII. As President Bush faces bitter defeat in Iraq, he suddenly makes an unbelievable "U-Turn" and begins to support the Baker-Hamilton Plan for peace and withdrawal.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush reverts to Plan B-H", by David Ignatius, Indy Star.com, June 1, 2007
"President Bush said publicly last Thursday what his top aides have been discussing privately for weeks. He talked about a transition to 'a different configuration' in Iraq after the current surge of U.S. troops is completed this summer. When pressed if he was talking about a post-surge Plan B, Bush answered: 'Actually, I would call that a plan recommended by Baker-Hamilton, so that would be a 'Plan B-H'."
Analysts were puzzled when President Bush rejected the bi-partisan plan put forward by the old Bush family friend, and former Secretary of State, James Baker. This next segment echoes this surprising embrace of the Baker plan.
"Let's make sure we've got that right: This would be the same Baker-Hamilton plan whose authors were lampooned by the conservative New York Post last December as "surrender monkeys"? The same Baker-Hamilton report that seemed to be all but buried by Bush's January embrace of a surge of 30,000 more U.S. troops into Iraq?"
Yes, I do remember that old friend James Baker (CFR) was extremely savaged when he proposed his plan of American withdrawal. Perhaps it would be helpful at this point to remember the Baker-Hamilton Report, for it delivered a broadside attack on President Bush's Iraq policies.
We covered this report indepth in our Newsletter of December 9, 2006.
The final Baker Report had some very terrible things to say about the Iraq War and about President Bush!
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq Study Report: Bush policy failing", The Denver Post, December 8, 2006
Washington - President Bush's war policies have failed in almost every regard, the bipartisan Iraq Study Group concluded today, and it warned of dwindling chances to change course before crisis turns to chaos with dire implications for terrorism, war in the Middle East and higher oil prices around the world."
This language is very strong and must be embarrassing President Bush terribly. When the Baker Report states that "President Bush's war policies have failed in almost every regard", that grade of "F" takes on special meaning because James Baker has always been considered both a friend of the Bush Clan and "Mr. Republican". I mean, this awful language is not coming from Senator Hillary Clinton, but one of President Bush's most important and long-term friends. Baker was appointed by President Bush; therefore, these words are even more crushing.
Now, let us return to this Denver Post article.
"Nearly four years, $400 billion and more than 2,900 U.S. deaths into a deeply unpopular war, violence is bad and getting worse, there is no guarantee of success and the consequences of failure are great, the high-level panel of five Republicans and five Democrats said in a bleak accounting of U.S. and Iraqi shortcomings .. Despite a massive effort, stability in Iraq remains elusive and the situation is deteriorating ... "
At this point, the Report lists 79 recommendations, the most important of which are:
* "US should find ways to pull back most of its combat forces by early 2008 and focus U.S. troops on training and supporting Iraqi units"
* "U.S. should also begin a 'diplomatic offensive' by the end of the month and engage adversaries Iran and Syria in an effort to quell sectarian violence and shore up the fragile Iraqi government." The very suggestion that President Bush is being told to turn to old enemies Syria and Iran to solve the Iraq problem which his policies created in the first place must be exceedingly galling!
* "There will be no military solution in Iraq. It will require a political solution arrived at through sustained Iraqi and region-wide diplomacy and engagement ... It urged him (Bush) to revive efforts at a broader Middle East peace." -- Once again, the regional peace conference is hinted at in the Baker report.
* "We do not recommend a stay-the-course solution', said James A. Baker III, the former secretary of state and Bush family adviser who co-chaired the commission. 'In our opinion, that approach is no longer viable'."
Once again, this language is clearly a slap in the face for Bush, for all year long, and all during the mid-term campaign, the President insisted that matters were getting better, and that, if the United States just "stayed the course", victory would be achieved. Now, however, family friend and "Mr. Republican" himself is blowing Bush's rhetoric apart.
* "US should reduce political, military or economic support for Iraq if the government in Baghdad cannot make substantial progress."
Once again, we reiterate that, just as in Vietnam, the idea that the Iraqi government can really overcome the insurgents enough to bring stability and prosperity to the country is a fairy tale of immense proportion!
Of course, President Bush denounced the Baker-Hamilton, announcing his own plan, which he called a "Surge" plan, whereby he would surge additional American troops into Iraq in order to bring about "victory".
Iraqi insurgent leaders laughed that this "surge" would bring American victory, and even taunted President Bush to bring the entire American Army over to Iraq, so they could totally destroy it. Now, at mid-point in 2007, we recognize that Bush's "Surge" plan is a failure, and that Iraq has slipped even further down the Abyss.
President Bush is shockingly admitting failure when he announced that he was considering the Baker-Hamilton Report! The end in Iraq may be closer than we thought possible just six months ago.
VIII. The Reverend Billy Graham again reaches out to his top Illuminati friends to dedicate the Billy Graham Library and Memorial.
Once again, the Reverend Billy Graham reached out to his Illuminist buddies when he wanted a keynote speaker for the dedication of the Billy Graham Library. And, once again, the truth about the real Billy Graham is on public display for all to see.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ex-presidents honor Billy Graham: Billy Graham Library set to open", World Peace Herald, JUne 1, 2007
"CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- To the Rev. Billy Graham, a new library celebrating the more than 60 years of his ministry contains too much of one thing: Billy Graham. But to former Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush and Jimmy Carter, no amount of praise can match the evangelist's worldwide spiritual influence."
Words really escape me to describe the words of loathing I have for these three Presidents.
* Bill Clinton was one of the most anti-Christian presidents in the history of the Republic, and most Christians truly hated the works he did when in office. The lowest moral point of his entire presidency was his oral sex affair in the Oval Office with Monica Lewinsky. Clinton taught an entire generation of American youngsters that oral sex is not really sex and therefore is not morally wrong. Christians were uniformly happy to see Clinton leave the White House; yet, in June, 2005, Dr. Graham paid a loving tribute to Bill Clinton and said that he was a 'a man I love'.
We report this sad state of affairs in NEWS2050, "BILLY GRAHAM SOILS HIS EVANGELIST'S ROBE BY EXCHANGING LOVING COMPLIMENTS WITH BILL CLINTON"
* President Jimmy Carter was a New Age Christian practitioner. He brought a number of key Illuminati figures into his Cabinet, of which Zibigdew Bzrezinski was chief. Carter deliberately brought down Defense Spending so much that President Reagan had to rebuild an entirely new military. The new military turned out to be the Depleted Uranium machine which President Bush (Sr.) unleashed in the 1991 Gulf War and which President Bush (Jr) unleashed against Afghanistan and Iraq in 2001 and 2003, respectively.

* President George H. W. Bush is a lifelong Adept in the Satanic coven known as Skull & Bones! Since this secret society is identical to the German Thule Society, of which Adolf Hitler was an Adept, both Presidents Bush have undergone the same rituals as did Adolf Hitler.
President Bush (Sr.) did much to advance the cause of the New World Order while in office.
President Bush is reported to have broken down with emotion and wept during the Graham dedication service. I find this display of emotion from an Adept in a Satanic secret society to a preacher who is supposedly a genuine Christian most unlikely and most grievous. After all, Scripture is very plain:
Yet, during this ceremony, Dr. Graham bragged much about his close relationships with all these former presidents. Their comments about Mr. Graham reveals that they walked closely with him during the time of their presidency. What does the Bible say about a Christian maintaining close ties with unchristians?
The Bible warns, "How can two men walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3)
By his very actions and words, Billy Graham is announcing to all discerning people that he is really cut of the same cloth as these former presidents, three Illuminist peas in a pod! If you disagree, just watch the video trailer of "The Great Global Apostate Church". Watch as Billy Graham is caught on film advocating the global universalist church which the Bible says will serve Antichrist. Watch Graham on video saying that men will enter Heaven who have never heard the name of Jesus before! The REAL Billy Graham is far different than the public relations Graham.
Please take a moment to read these articles which we have posted over the years about the Reverend Billy Graham. You can see a full listing of all our Graham articles at the end of NEWS2050, "BILLY GRAHAM SOILS HIS EVANGELIST'S ROBE BY EXCHANGING LOVING COMPLIMENTS WITH BILL CLINTON".
The REAL Billy Graham is far different than the public relations Graham most people know.
NEWS2211 -- "Is Florida Being Re-Wilded Through Drought, Fires, and Hurricanes?
Florida is suffering through her most severe and most widespread droughts ever in the region. Wildfires naturally follow extreme drought. As we examine the pattern of wildfires and of the KBDI Drought Index, we abruptly realize that this pattern is eerily similar to the pattern on the U.N. Biodiversity Map showing those areas which will be off-limits to normal human habitation!
Is the stage being set for a government "Re-wilding" decree forcing all humans off this land?
NEWS2210 -- "Illuminati 'Telegraphs Its Punches' Again -- Ozzy Osbourne's New Album Is Entitled, 'Black Rain', A Clear Reference To Depleted Uranium Poisoning"
These lyrics clearly are referring to nuclear radiation, as Ozzy's Fox interview revealed. Lyrics also refer to soldiers dying in the desert and to the whole earth suffering from "Black Rain". We believe this nuclear radiation is setting stage for fulfillment of this prophecy:
NEWS2208 -- "The Reverend Billy Graham WAS Warned Repeatedly Against His Modernist, Ecumenical Activities"
When Cutting Edge broke the story that Mr. Graham was a Freemason, many people wrote us, asking us if we had contacted him. Since we could not actually get in touch with Graham, we wrote to his organization, the BGEA.
Pastor David Cloud recounts the same experience, but then tells of the many devout Fundamental Christian leaders who warned Mr. Graham as far back as the early 1950's. Do not be deceived -- Reverend Graham embarked on his apostate, ecumenical ways with "eyes wide open". He knew exactly that he was leading people by the millions into the camp of the "enemy of our souls"!
---------- Inspiration For The Week----------"Continue in the faith." Acts 14:22
Perseverance is the badge of true saints.
The Christian life is not a beginning only in the ways of God, but also a continuance in the same as long as life lasts. It is with a Christian as it was with the great Napoleon: he said, "Conquest has made me what I am, and conquest must maintain me." So, under God, dear brother in the Lord, conquest has made you what you are, and conquest must sustain you. Your motto must be, "Excelsior." He only is a true conqueror, and shall be crowned at the last, who continueth till war's trumpet is blown no more.
Perseverance is, therefore, the target of all our spiritual enemies. The world does not object to your being a Christian for a time, if she can but tempt you to cease your pilgrimage, and settle down to buy and sell with her in Vanity Fair. The flesh will seek to ensnare you, and to prevent your pressing on to glory. "It is weary work being a pilgrim; come, give it up. Am I always to be mortified? Am I never to be indulged? Give me at least a furlough from this constant warfare." Satan will make many a fierce attack on your perseverance; it will be the mark for all his arrows. He will strive to hinder you in service: he will insinuate that you are doing no good; and that you want rest. He will endeavour to make you weary of suffering, he will whisper, "Curse God, and die." Or he will attack your steadfastness: "What is the good of being so zealous? Be quiet like the rest; sleep as do others, and let your lamp go out as the other virgins do." Or he will assail your doctrinal sentiments: "Why do you hold to these denominational creeds? Sensible men are getting more liberal; they are removing the old landmarks: fall in with the times."
Wear your shield, Christian, therefore, close upon your armour, and cry mightily unto God, that by His Spirit you may endure to the end. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
