---------- Inspiration For the Week--"The Amen." Revelation 3:14

The word AMEN solemnly confirms that which went before; and Jesus is the great Confirmer; immutable, for ever is "the Amen" in all His promises. Sinner, I would comfort thee with this reflection. Jesus Christ said, "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." If you come to Him, He will say "Amen" in your soul; His promise shall be true to you. He said in the days of His flesh, "The bruised reed I will not break." O thou poor, broken, bruised heart, if thou comest to Him, He will say "Amen" to thee, and that shall be true in thy soul as in hundreds of cases in bygone years. Christian, is not this very comforting to thee also, that there is not a word which has gone out of the Saviour's lips which He has ever retracted? The words of Jesus shall stand when heaven and earth shall pass away. If thou gettest a hold of but half a promise, thou shalt find it true. Beware of him who is called "Clip-promise," who will destroy much of the comfort of God's word.

Jesus is Yea and Amen in all His offices. He was a Priest to pardon and cleanse once, He is Amen as Priest still. He was a King to rule and reign for His people, and to defend them with His mighty arm, He is an Amen King, the same still. He was a Prophet of old, to foretell good things to come, His lips are most sweet, and drop with honey still--He is an Amen Prophet. He is Amen as to the merit of His blood; He is Amen as to His righteousness. That sacred robe shall remain most fair and glorious when nature shall decay. He is Amen in every single title which He bears; your Husband, never seeking a divorce; your Friend, sticking closer than a brother; your Shepherd, with you in death's dark vale; your Help and your Deliverer; your Castle and your High Tower; the Horn of your strength, your confidence, your joy, your all in all, and your Yea and Amen in all. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"; Emphasis added)

-------Focus: Key Doctrinal Truth----------"Black Theology"

A theology of black liberation that originated in the United States and gained widespread acceptance in Southern Africa. It differs from African Theology, which is primarily a theology of pre-Christian African traditional religions. But, Black Theology is the theology that the Old Testament is the story of a black nation, Israel, written by black Jews as a history of their people. Jesus is depicted as a black Messiah who built upon the black Old Testament and came on a mission to liberate His black people from the oppression of white Gentiles. See also: Ethiopianist Theology; Liberation Theology; Political Theology; Theology of Decolonization.

---------- Resource Update ----------

News Flash: This Election Is Rigged Between Two Skull & Bones Candidates!

* "American Dictators: Documenting The Staged Election of 2004" -- Video by Alex Jones - "We don't know the future, but we've studied human history and regardless of who wins the November, 2004, election, the New World Order wins."
In a dictatorship:

1. There is no choice
2. The elections are controlled
3. The police are the military
4. Fear equals control
5. Speech is suppressed
6. The economy is looted
7. The people are treated as slaves

Given the incredibly strong propaganda campaign in America since World War II, most Americans do not realize how tightly our elections have been controlled. In 2004, we really have no choice, as each candidate is a life-long Adept in the Black Magick Secret Society, "Skull & Bones" - #322.

The hottest, most pertinent video in a long, long while. Considered by one Cutting Edge researcher to be the best video Alex Jones has ever produced. Over 2 hours - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=895

For Those Who Do Not Know What Skull & Bones Truly Is

* "America's Secret Establishment: Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones" - Book by Antony Sutton - This book - published originally in 1986 - is THE classic study of Skull & Bones, that Black Magick Secret Society to which Presidents Bush and Candidate John Kerry belong! The author shows not only what Skull & Bones is, but also how it fits in the overall Illuminati plan to change America first and subjugate her finally. You will study the activities of the elite American families who have been working together for almost 200 years to bring all of American industry, education, and religion under their firm control. Sutton was the first to identify Skull & Bones as being part of the global "Brotherhood of Death" societies, a devastating fact which then allows you to understand that all initiates go through the same exact rituals as did Adolf Hitler, who was a member of the "Brotherhood of Death" society called "The Thule Society". - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=821

* "Fleshing Out Skull & Bones - The Whole Story" - Book edited by Antony Sutton - Since two out of our last three Presidents have been lifelong Adepts in Skull & Bones secret society, and since our current President has refused to disavow this society, it is highly important for us to know exactly what kind of society this is. Today, we have Bonesman John Kerry running against Bonesman Bush for President.

This chronicle of espionage, drug smuggling, and elitism in Yale University's Skull & Bones society offers rare glimpses into his secret world. Book is 712 pages, with 8 color photos, 80 black/white photos, 16 illustrations and 24 charts. Reports previously unpublished documents, photographs, and articles that delve deeply into issues such as racism, financial ties to the Nazi Party and illegal corporate dealings. Books prints a complete list of known members, including George H.W. Bush (1948) and George W. Bush (1968), and of course, John Kerry (1966) and reprints of rare magazine articles on the Order of Skull & Bones. It is absolutely amazing the depth of material available to a skilled and determined researcher. Authors include journalists, historians, a professor emeritus of political science, and a newspaper editor; the only drawback is this book does not deal with the severe occult side of this society. However, the shocking secular information it does contain needs to be imparted to every citizen in America. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=640


Other New Items

* "Outcome-Based Religion: Apostasy, Purpose, and the Paradigm Shift - Book on CD- by Mac Dominick, Cutting Edge Ministries - One of THE major signs by which you will know that the End of the Age is truly approaching is when you see the great majority of Christian churches falling away from the Fundamentals of the Faith - a process the Bible calls "Apostasy" (2 Thess 2:3). A pastor or church leader who knowingly moves away from teaching the "full counsel" of God, and begins incorporating unbiblical and human elements in his services and his teaching, is literally -- and Biblically -- opening the door to Antichrist. How many well-meaning pastors have ever thought of this sober fact as they lead their churches into areas that are not Biblical? Outcome-based religion is based on essentially the same principles. It promulgates the Communist philosophy that the 'ends justifies the means'. "The end" for the most part is church growth, and the standards of the Scripture are subordinated or ignored when perceived as a deterrent to such growth. The result is a counterfeit church movement deceiving millions into thinking they are saved.

- VHS * "Life's Story: 150-Year-Old Evolution vs Creation Debate Is Now Over!" - - The Evolution vs Creation debate has raged for more than 150 years, but now, the debate is over! What does modern DNA research prove about the theory that simple cells evolved into all life on earth? Simply that evolution is scientifically impossible. So, why is this information being kept from the general public? Should Darwin's discredited theories still be taught as "facts" in our educational institutions?

In a wildlife program unlike any other ever seen before, you will journey to discover the story of life itself. How much can animals change? Why do so many species depend upon one another to survive? Where does instinct and intelligence come from? And what do the designs of creatures alive today reveal about their history? Learn about the abilities of parrot fish and dolphins, the habits of ostriches and wildebeast, and the skills and instincts of cheetahs, giraffes, and lions. Filmed and researched over a 5-year period in 10 different countries, Life's Story explores all these issues in the most visually stunning and informative wildlife productions available today.

* Wonderfully Informative Related Book -- Biblical Basis For Modern Science -- Dr. Henry Morris - In this updated classic, Morris shows the fallacy of evolution by walking the reader through history. From a wide variety of sciences, including astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics, and geology, clear evidence shows that the Bible gives us an astonishingly accurate record of the past. The bottom line is this: the Bible gives a lot of scientific data, and wherever it does give data, it has always been proven correct. - Scientific evidence that God's Word can be trusted -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=386

* Audio CD - "Who Says The Bible Is God's Word?" - Sermon by Pastor Billy Crone - Many people are quick today to spout off bold statements that there is no way in it can be proven that the Bible really came from God. in reality it is the critic who’s “cheese has fallen out of their sandwich.” Why? Because they refuse to look at the evidence. The 10 lines of solid evidence that proves that the Bible really came from God are: 1) The Bible says so; 2) Jesus said so; 3) The Apostles said so: 4) The Early Church and Church History said so; 5)Transmission Standards say so; 6) Manuscript Data says so; 7) Archaeology says so; 8) Predictive Prophecy says so; 9) Science says so; and 10) The Nature and Scope of Data says so.

With all this overwhelming evidence from God, there is no need for you to doubt and no need for you to cave in to the false claims of the ignorant critic. We can know for sure that what we hold in our hands is indeed the Genuine Word of God! The evidence is so solid and overwhelming that you can bet your eternal soul on this Book! - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=889

* "The 10 Commandments - Created To Show Us Our Need For A Savior" - Sermon by Pastor Billy Crone - Did you know that God created His 10 Commandments simply to show sinful mankind their desperate need for a Savior? Attention all citizens! God is Holy and we are not. The bad news is that the penalty for our unholy behavior is not merely physical death, but eternal death in Hell. The good news is that if we acknowledge our sin, and accept Jesus' forgiveness, we can be spared the horrors of an eternal Hell. - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=888

I. President Bush and Democrat Candidate Kerry held their first Presidential debate on Thursday evening, September 30. While most pundits expressed their opinion that the debate was a draw, three polls taken in the immediate aftermath showed that Kerry "won" the encounter.

NEWS BRIEF: "3 Polls Show Kerry Won Debate Over Bush", Excite News, October 1, 2004

"CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - President Bush and Sen. John Kerry rushed back to the campaign trail Friday to try to convince voters they had won the debate over foreign policy and to renew the argument over whether going to war in Iraq had made the nation safer. Three post-debate polls suggested voters who watched the policy-driven confrontation Thursday night were impressed by Kerry. Most of those surveyed said he did better than Bush ... Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who informally advised Bush on how to debate his friend and Senate colleague, told reporters in Miami on Friday that the debate was probably Kerry's 'brightest moment' in the last six weeks."

While Senator Kerry seems somewhat stiff and mechanical while on the regular campaign trail, he seems to come alive during a debate. In 1986, Kerry debated Massachusetts Governor William Weld in one of the classic debates of all time. Kerry absolutely defeated and embarrassed Weld; therefore, I figured that Kerry would perform at a very high level last night. Indeed, Bush seemed somewhat irritated and even arrogant at times. We understood that the pre-debate agreement stipulated that the camera would remain focused on the person speaking and not pan to the other candidate; however, the TV camera did pan. On several occasions, when Kerry was speaking, Bush was shown to be smirking. My wife remarked that this would not sit well with many voters.

Let us go back to this feature article to see that others noticed this, also.

"Kerry's campaign prepared a TV ad that featured newspaper headlines from Friday praising the Democrat's performance. The Democratic National Committee was rolling out a Web video showing clips of Bush appearing frustrated at the debate. When Kerry leveled some of his charges, Bush appeared irritated and scowled at times and, at other moments, glanced away in apparent disgust. Kerry often took notes when the president spoke. The television networks offered a split screen to viewers so they could see both men at the same time and watch their reactions."

Someone in the DNC worked overtime to get this TV ad finished and ready to begin showing the very next morning! Had the Kerry camp believed that Bush had won the debate, they would not have quickly prepared this TV commercial. If you are tempted to start believing the Conventional Wisdom that this Presidential campaign is NOT scripted, just go back to your understanding that both President Bush and Senator Kerry are livelong Adepts in the Masonic Black Magick secret society called "Skull & Bones"; therefore, the global Plan of the Illuminati will continue to go forward toward the goal of completely fulfilling Biblical prophecy concerning the End of the Age, no matter who is elected President.

As Alex Jones so clearly demonstrates on his video, above, this campaign is scripted. It does not matter for whom you vote. However, it is most interesting to watch as these skilled propaganda "Media Spin" professionals manipulate events which are completely planned out in advance and cause them to daily unfold in such a manner that they appear to occur by accident.

We do not know whom the Illuminati has planned to be President for the next 4 years, nor do we care. The same problems will face the country no matter who is elevated to the Presidency and the same post-election events now planned will occur. We have noticed, however, that when the planned events of the next 4 years are primarily in the realm of Foreign Policy, a Republican is sent to the White House; conversely, when the planned events are to be Domestic, a Democrat becomes President.

II. As predicted by the Media, the candidates address two issues primarily: the Iraq War and the "War On Terrorism". Bush consistently portrayed himself as the really strong leader and Kerry as the weak "flip-flopper". Kerry validated the government's story on 9/11 and attacked Bush for not doing enough to empower Homeland Security, that quasi-dictatorial bureaucratic monster which threatens all our freedoms!

NEWS BRIEF: "Candidates spar over Iraq", The Seattle Times, October 1, 2004.

Iraq War

"The Massachusetts senator repeatedly accused the president of 'misleading' the nation as he went to war ... 'The president has made, I regret to say, a colossal error of judgment, and judgment is what we look for in the president of the United States of America', Kerry said of the war ... Kerry sharply questioned the president's credibility and highlighted his own ability to serve as commander in chief. Yet he placed less emphasis on how he would do things better, or differently, than Bush ...

"Bush repeatedly talked about how difficult the war was, and spoke most passionately about praying and crying with the wife of a fallen soldier. 'I told her her husband's sacrifice was noble and worthy, because I understand the stakes in the war on terror', he said. 'Every life is precious'."

Remember this statement from Bush when we begin to speak about Depleted Uranium, below.

The President then made a point against Kerry, only to have Kerry turn the tables on him.

"As he often does on the stump, Bush ridiculed Kerry's vote against a spending bill for Iraq and Afghanistan and the Democrat's explanation that he voted for it 'before I voted against it'. 'That's not what a commander in chief does when you're trying to lead troops', Bush said. Kerry ceded the point but sought to portray Bush's errors as greater. 'I made a mistake in how I talk about the war', Kerry said, 'but the president made a mistake in invading Iraq. Which is worse?' " (Ibid.)

This is a major debating point victory! Kerry has always stated that his Vietnam combat experience will enable him to make better decisions as to when a situation is worth-while going to war and when to not go to war; his point all along is that Iraq was not worth going to war over, especially since the major reasons Bush based his war decision have proven to be false. Daily war events in Iraq and Afghanistan only undermine the President's credibility as a worthy war-time commander. Every time Bush or Cheney or the CIA agent Prime Minister Allawi tell us how wonderfully things are going, Kerry will gain strength in the polls because the American people are getting a bad daily dose of negative, bloody war news.

War On Terror -- Osama bin Laden

"Kerry suggested that Bush could have captured bin Laden. 'We had him surrounded, but we didn't use American forces, the best-trained in the world, to go kill him," Kerry said. "The president relied on Afghan warlords that he outsourced that job to'." (Ibid.)

We find Kerry's choice of the word, "outsourced" very interesting, for that is usually reserved for economic debate. During the four years of the Bush Administration, several million jobs have been lost to corporate "outsourcing", that dastardly practice of moving jobs overseas to take advantage of less expensive labor. Bush compounded the problem he faces with voters over outsourcing by declaring some months ago that outsourcing does not hurt our economy. Kerry is likely to return to that economic issue later as the planned debates continue.

"Bush argued that Iraq and the fight against terrorism were inseparable, saying: 'A free Iraq is essential for the security of this country'."

The only problem we see with this line of argument is that Iraq is likely to never be "free" in the sense of having a Western-style democracy. Middle Eastern Muslims do not have the cultural and/or religious heritage which would allow a contentious representative democracy to develop. Their religion is so rigid and so intolerant of other points of view that their religious leaders would not tolerate sharply differing points of view. And, our leaders knew this fact before they ordered the invasion.

Yet, because most Americans are ignorant of the facts, the President can continue making this broad statements not rooted in reality.

Kerry portrayed Saddam as a threat but not as the most important one. 'The president moved the troops so he's got 10 times the number of troops in Iraq than he has in Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden is', he said. 'Does that mean that Saddam Hussein was 10 times more important than Osama bin Laden? I don't think so'." (Ibid.)

Kerry's statement here very subtly corroborates the official 9/11 story of the Bush Administration, because he spoke about Osama bin Laden as though he was the mastermind behind the attacks. Discerning Americans know that so many problems exist with the official story line of 9/11 that it becomes impossible to believe that Muslim highjackers armed only with box cutters could commandeer four airlines, skillfully piloting three of them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

Discerning Cutting Edge subscribers know how far in advance the Illuminati planned the 9/11 attacks -- Read NEWS1753, "Smoking Gun Proof That The Illuminati Plan To Attack On 9/11 Was Well Known As Far Back As 1995". Therefore, when Kerry makes this kind of statement, extolling the dangers of Osama bin Laden, he is corroborating the propaganda of the Bush Administration as to how the attacks of 9/11 occurred and who was responsible.

For that matter, the "attack film" of Michael Moore - Fahrenheit 9/11 - also corroborates the official lie about 9/11, as does the "expose' " about Abu Ghraib by Seymour Hersh. Whatever damage to Bush's credibility is caused by these two "hostile" media attacks is strongly counterbalanced by the reality that they support the official line as to who was responsible for 9/11.

Then, Kerry strongly told the American people that Bush had not made Homeland Security powerful enough! We shudder at this possibility, because we know that Homeland Security is empowered by Patriot Acts I and II to impose a dictatorship on this country ("Police State III Video". Thinking, knowledgeable Americans do not sleep as well as they used to because they know this Sword of Damocles hanging just inches from our throats.

Please stop for a moment to consider the reality that Homeland Security is a domestic issue. Kerry is accusing the President of not empowering this domestic Gestapo-type agency enough. The implication is that, if Kerry wins the Presidency, he will spend more time and energy paying attention to domestic security than overseas wars. If the objective in the next four years is the domestic agenda, Kerry is going to take this election. Certainly, dissolving our Constitution and imposing a dictatorship is a domestic issue.

North Korea

Surprisingly, Kerry brought up the North Korean debacle.

"The candidates disagreed most sharply on North Korea, which during Bush's term has evicted international inspectors and reprocessed enough plutonium to produce a half-dozen nuclear weapons. Kerry called for bilateral talks to persuade the North Korean government to give up its weapons. Bush blasted that idea as a 'serious mistake', saying it would end the multinational diplomacy under way by the administration." (Ibid.)

We have been following the half-hearted attempts by the Bush Administration to "negotiate" an end to the North Korean nuclear weapons issue. Time and time again, a key Administration official would do something or say something which would offend Oriental sensibilities, thus guaranteeing a negative outcome to the talks. We encourage you to read our following articles on this subject:

* NEWS1805 -- "U.S. ENVOY INSULTS NORTH KOREA!" The American envoy refuses to even show up for third day of the meeting! Rumsfeld calls for regime change in North Korea before the "negotiations" even begin.


Interestingly, a top CFR leader accused Bush very recently of badly bungling the North Korean nuclear negotiations!

NEWS BRIEF: "Harrison Faults Bush Administration for Rejecting Step-by-Step Accords to Halt North Korea's Nuclear Program", Council on Foreign Relations Magazine, May 10, 2004.

"Selig S. Harrison, director of the Asia Program at the Center for International Policy and a longtime expert on North Korea, says Pyongyang is 'eager' to start step-by-step negotiations with Washington to freeze and end its nuclear program. But the United States, Harrison says, refuses to take up the offer ... 'I think it is a charade', he says."

As we have stated before, when one highly-placed Illuminist suddenly criticizes another publicly, you must realize that you are looking at the outworking of a specifically written plan. We began noticing in February, 2004, that various officials were suddenly attacking Bush over the Iraq war, the "War on Terror" and North Korea. This type of criticism continued so consistently throughout the year that we began to suspect that the plan called for Bush to be gradually discredited. You may read our article on this subject: NEWS1929, "CAMPAIGN TO DISCREDIT PRESIDENT BUSH SEEMS MOVING INTO HIGHER GEAR"

Right on cue, North Korea announced just days before this first debate that she had, indeed, processed those 8,000 enriched uranium rods into nuclear weapons.

NEWS BRIEF: "North Korea says plutonium has been turned into nuclear weapons", International Herald Tribune, September 28, 2004

"North Korea has turned plutonium from 8,000 spent nuclear fuel rods into weapons to serve as a deterrent against a possible nuclear strike by the United States, a North Korean minister said Monday. Warning that the danger of war on the Korean peninsula 'is snowballing', Vice Foreign Minister Choe Su Hon blamed the United States for intensifying threats to attack the communist nation and destroying the basis for negotiations to resolve the dispute over Pyongyang’s nuclear program ... North Korea has been left with ‘no other option but to possess a nuclear deterrent’ because of U.S. policies that he claimed were designed to 'eliminate the DPRK by force while designating it as part of an ‘axis of evil’ and a target of pre-emptive nuclear strikes'."

While Bush Administration officials quickly sought to downplay the significance and/or the credibility of this official North Korean announcement, the fact that this claim was publicized only two days before the first debate had the effect of solidifying the accusation by CFR's Harrison, above, that the only reason America has not diffused the crisis is that President Bush has mishandled the entire situation.

For the record, Cutting Edge has been reporting for nearly two years now that North Korea has possessed nuclear weapons in quantity for several years because they continued using the old Soviet Union method of enriching uranium to make bombs. Please take the time to read NEWS1780 and NEWS1781.

Before we leave this subject, let us review the part North Korea is to play in the coming World War III:

New World Order Plan: "A hair-raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man's very survival." [Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", p. 223]

What is most interesting about this sentence in this Illuminist book is that it states that this planned nuclear confrontation is going to occur "towards the end of the period". Therefore, the very fact that we see headlines every single day about North Korea's nuclear threat tells us that the Illuminati considers that the world has entered into the final stages of their plans for World War III.

Common Themes of the Debate

"The debate revisited many of the well-known disagreements from the campaign and repeatedly returned to its central themes: Kerry doubting Bush's credibility at home and abroad, and Bush doubting Kerry's ability to command and not 'waver'." (Ibid.)

After the debate, Vice Presidential Candidate John Edwards told Kerry that he looked and acted like a "Commander-in-Chief". Political pundits are always making the assertion that the American people have always insisted that a candidate "look" Presidential. If that were true, then Richard Nixon would never have been elected twice, for he had the demeanor of a slick used car salesman. However, some news reports stated that, on this night, John Kerry "looked Presidential".


III. Depleted Uranium exploded into public consciousness again this week when the New York Daily News reported that a father had brought D.U. poisoning home and had passed it to the baby he and his wife conceived after his return; this precious newly-born daughter is missing three fingers and most of her right hand!

NEWS BRIEF: "The war's littlest victim: He was exposed to depleted uranium. His daughter may be paying the price", New York Daily News, September 29, 2004

"In early September 2003, Army National Guard Spec. Gerard Darren Matthew was sent home from Iraq, stricken by a sudden illness. One side of Matthew's face would swell up each morning. He had constant migraine headaches, blurred vision, blackouts and a burning sensation whenever he urinated."

These are classic symptoms of Depleted Uranium poisoning. Cutting Edge has been writing vigorously about Depleted Uranium (D.U.) poisoning since May, 2003. Our inside professional sources proved to have been absolutely correct about their warning of the dangers D.U. posed to both our soldiers wielding these weapons and the Iraqi civilian population. We invite you to take a moment to read our articles in our Depleted Uranium section before you continue with this story; you will be better prepared to understand the medical facts of this news story.

Now, let us return to this sad story. You will see that the Pentagon has been involved in a massive coverup campaign which has revolved around several actions common to today's veteran as he seeks answers as to why he is sick:

* Refusing requests by concerned veterans for a D.U. test.

* If a test is done, the Army has set a standard result so high that they can falsely assure a vet he does not have D.U. poisoning when, in fact, he most assuredly does, as any objective private test will reveal.

* Falsely assuring them that they have nothing to worry about as long as they did not get hit with D.U. ammunition or transport vehicles which had been destroyed by D.U. Our veterans are not told that they can become fatally poisoned by simply breathing! If just one tiny speck (0.2 microns) of contaminated dust enters the body through the lungs, that person will start to die. Remember that when a D.U. munition hits its target, that dense radioactive material dissolves into tiny, fine dust, when then covers the entire landscape; later, the strong winds in that region pick the dust up and transport it far beyond the original battlefield.

* Falsely telling the soldier that the test in his urine will conclusively set the level at which his body is poisoned. As the transcript of a TV interview, below, demonstrates, the lungs of an infected soldier in which a D.U. speck of dust has settled may be 1,000 times higher in contamination than his urine!

Now, let us return to this New York Daily News story:

"The Army transferred him to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington for further tests, but doctors there could not explain what was wrong. Shortly after his return, his wife, Janice, became pregnant. On June 29, she gave birth to a baby girl, Victoria Claudette. The baby was missing three fingers and most of her right hand." (Ibid.)

If you doubt that babies of returning veterans of both Gulf War veterans can be deformed by D.U., we encourage you to watch the D.U. video which Congressman Dennis Kucinich used during his primary campaign for President. Just click here to see this video. Be sure to click to see the second part of video, for it is there you will see what Depleted Uranium is doing to newly-born children -- both in America and in Iraqi. In his video, Congressman Kucinich states that, among Gulf War I veterans, 67% of all children conceived after Daddy came home have significant health disasters.

"Matthew and his wife believe Victoria's shocking deformity has something to do with her father's illness and the war - especially since there is no history of birth defects in either of their families. They have seen photos of Iraqi babies born with deformities that are eerily similar. The independent test of Matthew's urine found him positive for DU - low-level radioactive waste produced in nuclear plants during the enrichment of natural uranium ... Exposure to radioactivity has been associated in some studies with birth defects in the children of exposed parents ... The couple first learned of the baby's missing fingers during a routine sonogram of the fetus last April at Lenox Hill Hospital." (Ibid.)

As we have stated before, this issue of Depleted Uranium weapons killing our own soldiers, their wives and their babies, in addition to the environmental disaster we are meting out to the Iraqi population, is THE issue of this campaign. If significant numbers of American mothers, fathers, wives and girlfriends were to ever understand that their loved ones were doomed from the time they shipped off to Iraq, such outrage would explode that the White House would positively be besieged with calls for impeachment. This slow process of discrediting President Bush, described above, would positively careen into the political Abyss.

We cannot hold out any hope that the Kerry Campaign will expose this issue for the following reasons:

* To hold President Bush accountable for deploying D.U. weapons would immediately point an accusing finger at President Clinton, for he unleashed a D.U. war in Kosovo in 1999. Further, it was the Clinton Administration who blocked every urgent request to the United Nations from the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein to allow them to buy the equipment which would have been able to remove contaminated dust and the medical supplies to treat the civilian victims of Gulf War I.

* To hold Bush responsible for Depleted Uranium poisoning of all 250,000 American troops and of 25 million Iraqis would mean that a President Kerry would be forced to strip American forces of D.U. weaponry. With so many foreign nations now equipped with this stuff -- largely because we exported it to them -- U.S. forces would be seriously outgunned in any future war.

* American troops not yet in Iraq or Afghanistan and/or American civilian men subject to the future draft about which we keep hearing might decide to refuse to serve. A massive resistance effort by a great majority of American men would be beyond the capability of any government to handle.

* Democrats are as committed to the goals of the Illuminati as are Republicans (Read NEWS1958).

What is the prognosis for this soldier and his baby? The soldier will most definitely die sometime in the next 10 years, his wife is extremely at risk, as is their innocent baby. This is the true legacy Bush has left for the American soldier, his wife and his family from his D.U. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. When you compare this reality with Bush's self-serving statement, above, that he considers each soldier "precious", you will realize the true heart of our President. Once again, we realize that our government does NOT have our best interests at heart, no matter what their rhetoric states. How can American leaders be this callous to fellow Americans? They are Globalists, not Patriots, and their ultimate goal is a global government where all sovereign nations are dissolved. (Read Professor Carroll Quigley's classic expose', "The Anglo American Establishment")

Please allow soldier Gerard Darren Matthew the last word on this subject:

"I'm upset and confused," Matthew said. "I just want answers. Are they [the Army] going to take care of my baby?" (Ibid)

P.S. Spec. Gerard Matthew is interviewed on TV (Democracy Now) by Juan Gonzalez, the journalist from the New York Daily News who has written these D.U. articles. You can click on the video of the TV interview or you can click on the transcript. A lot of other very good information is revealed on this TV interview.

IV. The Presidential debate did not mention the critically important issue of the Israeli - Palestinian war, or Prime Minister Sharon's most important "Unilateral Withdrawal" and forced evacuation of all Jewish settlers. This omission is critical, for all Christian and Jewish voters have the right to know how the President stands on this issue. They need to know that Bush has consistenly pushed Sharon to make the kinds of concessions to the Palestinians which today threaten the very existence of Israel.

NEWS BRIEF: "Candidates omit Israeli-Palestinian conflict from U.S. debate", Haaretz News, October 1, 2004

"WASHINGTON - Many important foreign policy topics went unexplored during the first debate of the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign but perhaps most unusual was the lack of attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. President George W. Bush and Democratic challenger John Kerry gave the Jewish state - America's key Middle East ally - only one mention each during their 90-minute debate on Thursday night at the University of Miami. And in both cases, the references came in the context of achieving peace in Iraq, not the conflict between Israel and Palestinians that roils the region with no end in sight."

Now, this omission is startling. Biblical prophecy states that Israel is the key to End of the Age conflicts and the Illuminati states that their planned World War III will begin with Israel going to war with her Arab neighbors (Read NEWS1056). Events in Israel are certainly proceeding down the prophetic path God envisioned 2,500 years ago; in perfect parallel, the Illuminati Plan is unfolding just as prophecy demands.

We have published a most important article on the subject of Sharon's Unilateral Withdrawal Plan and the threat it poses to the entire nation of Israel. As the IDF prepares to commit 112,500 soldiers to the task of removing 8,500 settlers from the Gaza Strip and portions of the West Bank so the Palestinians can take control, crazy talk is swirling through the nation -- talk of civil war and of assassinating the Prime Minister.

Our article will put this looming crisis in perspective -- NEWS1916: "Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon Turns Dictatorial and Anti-Semitic As He Carries Out His Plan To Forcibly Evacuate Jewish Settlers From Their Settlements - New evidence that ultimate plan of Oslo Accords is to 'ruin' present-day Israel!"

Pay close attention to Israel, for it is from that tortured nation that this Final Birth Pangs War which the Illuminati calls World War III will begin.

V. As the candidates were preparing to begin their debate, the war in Iraq suddenly exploded. Curiously, Kerry did not make too much of the rapidly deteriorating military and political situation on the ground. We will consider several cortically important articles on this expanding war

A. Despite assurances from the Pentagon and the Iraqi Interim Government, the insurgency is burgeoning.

NEWS BRIEF: "It is deadlier than they admit", By Rory McCarthy, Dawn International News, 01 October 2004

"BAGHDAD: The insurgency in Iraq appears to be more widespread and deadly than Iraqi leaders are prepared to admit, according to military figures and a report by a private security firm. There have been 2,300 attacks in the past 30 days ... the attacks were being carried out from Mosul in the north through the Sunni heartland west of Baghdad and central Shia towns around Babylon down to Basra, in the south near the border with Kuwait. The attacks ranged from car bombs and time bombs to rocket-propelled grenades, hand grenades, gunfire, mortars and landmines. It said there was an average of 80 attacks a day."

"... For now it is the interim government and the occupying powers which are under attack. In Baghdad alone, there have been 1,000 attacks this month. One US officer said earlier this week that 3,000 mortars had been fired in the capital since the uprisings in April. Most are aimed at the Green Zone, the heavily fortified compound housing the Iraqi government and the US and British embassies ... For the first time several of those car bombs have attacked moving targets, often US military or Iraqi police convoys ..."

This situation is the result of Bush/Rumsfeld committing only 130,000 troops rather than the 260,000 the Pentagon originally stated it needed. We clearly do not have the manpower we need to pacify this insurgent guerrilla army. As the above article reports, the insurgents have fired hundreds of mortar rounds into the heavily fortified "Green Zone", the headquarters of the Coalition Forces! If our military cannot prevent its own headquarters from being fired on regularly, you know our effort is failing badly.

B. As we stated last week, one piece of evidence that we are losing control on the ground is the fact that we have turned to air strikes in lieu of ground forces. The result is that we are killing many civilians.

NEWS BRIEF: "Civilians die as US forces attack 'al-Zarqawi's bases' in Fallujah", New Zealand Herald, 26.09.2004

"US aircraft, tanks and artillery have pounded the resistance stronghold of Fallujah, killing at least eight people and wounding 15, while rebels struck back in Baghdad by killing six police recruits. The US said that it is hitting the strongholds of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Islamic militant, with pinpoint accuracy, but doctors at the local hospital in Fallujah said at least seven civilians were killed and 13 wounded, including women and children. The US-appointed Iraqi interim government, which supports the air strikes, last week banned the Ministry of Health in Baghdad from announcing figures for civilian casualties ... Since the US lost control of much of the Sunni heartlands in April, it has developed a policy of keeping up pressure on rebels by sustained air attack ...

"The claim by the Prime Minister Iyad Allawi that 14 or 15 Iraq provinces out of 18 are peaceful has been greeted with astonishment by Iraqis who see it as wholly addressed to a US audience to help President Bush win re-election."

We are killing so many civilians that United Nations Secretary Kofi Annan complained on September 20. Why are we killing so many civilians, when doing so violates many international statutes and when the President of the United States is supposed to be on his knees daily, seeking God's compassionate face in prayer? Two logical answers come to mind immediately:

1) President Bush is not really the Born Again person he is claiming to be. Indeed, we shall have to list this wanton killing of civilians as one more example of his many Bad Spiritual Fruits.

2) God is using America to deliver His final blow of Judgment against Ancient Babylon (Iraq) as foretold in Isaiah 13. (Read NEWS1920 for full details) For this particular point, we shall just quote a portion of this most important article:

"The Lord of hosts is mustering the host for the battle. They come from a distant country, from the uttermost part of the heavens ... even the Lord and the weapons of His indignation -- to seize and destroy the whole land." (Verses 4-5) Certainly, the multinational Coalition Force seized the whole land in April, 2003. Further, our D.U. poisoning is causing the destruction of the whole land, for the next 4.5 billion years! Since God is foretelling the destruction of the whole nation of Iraq, it makes sense that, when this foreign army "destroys the whole land" that destruction would include its people.

Reading from the Amplified portion of the Parallel Bible, we see even more destruction God has planned for these people:

"Therefore will all hands be feeble, and every man's heart will melt. And they [of Babylon] shall be dismayed and terrified, pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman in childbirth. They will gaze stupefied and aghast at one another, their faces will be aflame [from the effects of the unprecedented warfare]." [Isaiah 13:7-8; Ibid.]

Clearly, God is prophesying the destruction of the people of Iraq as He carries out His last judgment upon Ancient Babylon (today's Iraq). Then, God reiterates this prophecy and then shows how such destruction will ripple outward from Iraq to the whole world, much like a pebble thrown into a lake causes a rippling outward.

"Behold, the day of the Lord is coming!--fierce, with wrath and raging anger--to make the land (Iraq) and the whole earth a desolation and to destroy out of it its sinners." [Isaiah 13:9; Ibid]

Notice that, first God causes the destroying army to kill the citizens of Iraq, and then He causes that desolation and destruction to ripple outward to encompass the whole world. We have stated, on many occasions, that the Illuminati intended that the American-led invasion would provide the spark which would ignite the whole Middle East into war, including Israel. Once again, we see how God's prophecy forced the Illuminati to create their plan in such a manner that it would fulfill that prophecy, thus giving God the glory for His Omnipotent power.

We believe this cruelty in bombing and strafing civilians (NEWS1919) is fulfilling this prophecy. However, many people do not realize that God has followed a pattern of judgment in the Old Testament which does not bode well for America after we finish delivering His final judgment upon Iraq. Listen:

"Thus says the Lord against all ... evil neighbor nations who touch my inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit. Behold, I will pluck them up from their land and I will pluck the house of Judah from among them." [Jeremiah 12:14, Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

When God was ready to physically punish Israel for her stubborn sins, He would always bring in a foreign nation as His judgment tool. But, after He was finished using that foreign nation to deliver His judgment, God would take two actions: First, he would pluck His people from among the nation He had just used for judgment. Secondly, He would turn against the foreign nation He had just used for judgment and destroy that nation.

Once God is finished using America to deliver His final judgment upon Iraq, He will then turn to physically destroy us. That is His "Pattern of Judgment".

C. Just in case some of you do not realize that the anger against America boiling over in Iraq is spilling over to Israel, let us examine this next article:

NEWS BRIEF: "Iraqi insurgents cooperating with Palestinian terrorists", Maariv News, 2004-09-29

"... the post-Saddam Baathist leadership, which is controlling the Sunni insurgency in central Iraq is maintaining the close links Saddam forged with Palestinian terrorist groups ... Intelligence officials believe that these may have extended to include operational coordination with the Damascus headquarters of various Palestinian terrorist movements, including Hamas. The existence and scope of these links recently came to light following the capture of an important document by US forces in Iraq ... Iraqi money for Palestinian suicide bombers for years helped to legitimize atrocities. Should that money have continued after the end of Saddam Hussein's rule, it points to the deep and abiding connection between his horrific regime and the horrific Palestinian killers. An Israeli security source said, 'the continuation of funding for Palestinian terrorism could serve Iraqi insurgent interests because it continues to stress their connection to the Palestinian and Arab causes, and helps them to recruit Palestinians to fight in Iraq'."

Believe me, the entire Muslim world is slowly building to the same boiling point Iraq is experiencing right now. When a planned flashpoint event is unleashed, the whole Middle East will explode, and will ignite feverish anger among all 1.4 billion Muslims. At this point, the prophecy of Zechariah 12 will begin to unfold.

D. This week, we saw one more instance where an Illuminist insider suddenly attacked President Bush.

NEWS BRIEF: "IRAQ: One word says it all: Disaster", by Thomas F. Eagleton (Democratic U.S. senator from Missouri, 1968-1987), St. Louis Today, 09/29/2004

"Insurgents run rampant and Rumsfeld grows more stubborn. We're etching a big black mark across American history ... (the Iraq war) will go down as one of the most ill-conceived military undertakings in our history. The recently disclosed July report of the National Intelligence Council to President Bush tells us we are in grave trouble ... President George W. Bush often asks, rhetorically, 'Isn't the world better off with Saddam Hussein out of power?' The answer is no, no, no. Saddam, a brutal dictator, is in jail. That's good. But we have paid a bloody, awful price; a price we will be paying for years to come. The Iraq we created now is an international menace, a citadel for terrorism far more dangerous than the declining Saddam regime we deposed. Sometimes, the cure really is worse than the disease ... Pay no attention to Bush and Rumsfeld when they say "We expected this" or "The insurgents are desperate" or "Things are improving" in Iraq. It's pure drivel. The insurgents have an inexhaustible supply of suicide bombers. Our army, the still-pitiful Iraqi army and the people of Iraq are getting clobbered. Rumsfeld will join Robert McNamara as the two most disastrous defense secretaries in our history."

Coming from an insider, this article is truly remarkable. Notice that Eagleton warns that we shall pay a bloody price for years to come in Iraq. Indeed, we will, especially through our indiscriminate use of Depleted Uranium. Don't forget that, when you see one insider criticizing another, you are looking at the outworking of a plan. We suspect this plan is to discredit President Bush so he would be in trouble when the time for the campaign arrived.

E. Even American "career professionals" are getting downright discouraged by the events in Iraq.

NEWS BRIEF: "Growing Pessimism on Iraq: Doubts Increase Within U.S. Security Agencies", By Dana Priest and Thomas E. Ricks, Washington Post Staff Writers
Wednesday, September 29, 2004

"A growing number of career professionals within national security agencies believe that the situation in Iraq is much worse, and the path to success much more tenuous, than is being expressed in public by top Bush administration officials ... While President Bush, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and others have delivered optimistic public appraisals, officials who fight the Iraqi insurgency and study it at the CIA and the State Department and within the Army officer corps believe the rebellion is deeper and more widespread than is being publicly acknowledged ... People at the CIA "are mad at the policy in Iraq because it's a disaster, and they're digging the hole deeper and deeper and deeper," said one former intelligence officer .. "It is getting worse," agreed an Army staff officer who served in Iraq and stays in touch with comrades in Baghdad through e-mail. "It just seems there is a lot of pessimism flowing out of theater now. There are things going on that are unbelievable to me. They have infiltrators conducting attacks in the Green Zone. That was not the case a year ago."

One year ago, most Americans really believed that we were winning this war and that our troops would soon come home. Optimism was running rampant. Not so now, and this dramatic downturn could not have occurred at a worse time for a President running on re-election based on how well his war in Iraq is proceeding.

VI. Mt. Saint Helens volcano erupted today with a small "cold" eruption (no hot lava flow). Does anyone remember that this volcano sits on both the Pacific Rim of Fire and on the Pacific Northwest geologic system that includes the Yellowstone super volcano?

NEWS BRIEF: "Mount St. Helens Erupts, but Nothing Like 1980 Disaster", AP Breaking News, October 1, 2004

"MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. (AP) - Mount St. Helens, the volcano that blew its top with cataclysmic force in 1980, erupted for the first time in 18 years Friday, belching a huge column of white steam and ash after days of rumblings under the mountain. The noontime eruption cast a haze across the horizon as the roiling plume rose from the nearly 1,000-foot-tall lava dome ... Scientists had been predicting just such an eruption for days because of thousands of earthquakes and signs that the rock inside the crater was expanding rapidly ... About 20 minutes after Friday's eruption, the mountain calmed and the plume began to dissipate ... No evacuations were ordered, and there was no sign of any lava oozing from the volcano."

This eruption is nothing like the 1980 eruption, when the force of the explosion was so terrific that one-third of the mountain blew off. Most of the dirt, rocks, and trees of that eruption rolled down the mountainside and into the pristine waters of Spirit Lake. The 1980 blast was preceded by a land deformation in which the rock and dirt on the northeast side of the volcano began to grow outward and upward as the magma began to push against it from the inside. I was living in Portland, Oregon, at the time and was following events daily. I never realized that rock was so pliable it would expand outward like that; when the blast occurred, the land deformation was 450 feet outward and about 75 feet upward. (Read NEWS1852 to see how much land deformation has occurred in the Yellowstone Calderas)

Scientists refused to categorically state that the eruption at Mt. St. Helen was finished.

"The earthquakes quit after the eruption, said Jeff Wynn, another USGS scientist. He called the eruption a 'throat-clearing'. 'It's dead - bone-still right now', he said. "There's nothing happening at this stage, so this may have been a single event. But the history of the volcano suggests it could be an opening salvo and we'll see more events like this'. USGS seismologist Bob Norris said magma could be moving underground and he would not be surprised to see more explosions in the next days or weeks." (Ibid.)

Residents of the Pacific Northwest also have to be worried also about Mt. Ranier and Mt. Hood, both of which have been showing signs of coming to life.

VII. Genuine Conservatives must be going through internal crisis right now over the unbelievable remarks uttered by Supreme Court Justice Scalia, who has always been cast as a Catholic Christian Justice who has been very protective of America's moral values system. This statement from Justice Scalia is truly unbelievable.

NEWS BRIEF: "Orgies are the way to ease social tensions, claims US judge", The Guardian (London), Friday, October 1m 2004 (The original story can be read at The Harvard Crimson, http://www.thecrimson.com/article.aspx?ref=503540 )

"He is the conservative bastion of the US supreme court, a favourite of President Bush, and a hunting partner of the vice-president. He has argued vociferously against abortion rights, and in favour of anti-sodomy laws. But it turns out that there is another side to Justice Antonin Scalia: he thinks Americans ought to be having more orgies. Challenged about his views on sexual morality, Justice Scalia surprised his audience at Harvard University, telling them: 'I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged' ... He offered no clue to the logic behind his claim that orgies eliminate social tensions."

When the Supreme Court legalized Sodomy in June, 2003 (NEWS1830), Justice Scalia was at the forefront of the backlash against the ruling. Justice Scalia warned about some of the legal and ethical results of this landmark ruling. Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "Ruling on Gay Sex Ban May Have Far Reach", by Gina Holland, Associated Press, Washington Post, June 27, 2003.

"WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court's ruling striking down bans on gay sex also strengthens the constitutional underpinnings for legal abortion and other socially divisive issues, some legal experts say. The court said Thursday that what gay men and women do in the privacy of their bedrooms is their business and not the government's, a historic civil rights ruling that will likely be used to challenge other bans involving private conduct. The decision in many respects deals with the same issues as the court's 30-year-old Roe v. Wade ruling that provided for legal abortions. Emory University law professor David Garrow said the ruling "strengthens and enshrines" the court's thinking in the abortion case' ... Scalia said the ruling could open the way to laws allowing gay marriage ... The ruling also threatens laws banning bestiality, bigamy and incest, he wrote."

Justice Scalia has been honored greatly by the Catholic and Christian public for a very long time. But, now he has shown himself in colors that not only are not flattering, but quite possibly revealing as to his true nature -- his inner heart of hearts. In fact, this latter suggestion may have more merit than you might like to believe. Justice Scalia has a deeply held secret: he is a member of the Catholic secret society, Opus Dei, a self-flagellation religious cult who believe they get closer to God by beating themselves until their blood freely flows.

NEWS BRIEF: "Scalia and Opus Dei: Radicals on the High Court", by Mike Whitney, Counter Punch, Weekend Edition, January 17 / 18, 2004

"Whether or not an alleged member of Opus Dei like Justice Antonin Scalia enjoys a touch of the lash on his prodigious derriere from time to time, is certainly no business of ours. However, the affiliation of a Justice on the highest court in the land to an organization that, for all appearances, is nothing more than a right-wing cult should arouse not only suspicion, but an investigation. Opus Dei is a clandestine Catholic organization based in Chicago, Ill. In size, it is insignificant, a mere 85,000 members (only 3,000 members in the US) compared to the one billion Catholics worldwide. But, its membership boasts of some of the most powerful and wealthy people in the country ... Opus Dei came under the microscope again when it was featured rather unflatteringly in the popular mystery novel, The Da Vinci Code. The novel did a great deal to support the notion that the organization had a sinister underlying purpose. If their purpose, however, is to acquire as much power as possible within the Church, as many believe it is, then they have succeeded quite nicely. For one thing the Pope's spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, is an active member, which indicates that a devoted party loyalist is as close as possible to the seat of authority in the Church."

This story confirms that our entire government is riddled with members of secret societies. Some government officials are Freemasons, some are Rosicrucians, some are Skull & Bones, some Scroll & Key, and now we learn that Justice Scalia is Opus Dei. All these groups are based in the practice of the Occult and all of them are in an antagonistic relationship to the true Church of Jesus Christ.

I do not want to depend upon a man like Justice Scalia to uphold traditional American Christian values when he regularly beats himself until his blood flows freely, and I certainly do not want to depend upon a man who publicly advocates sexual orgies. If Scalia states this much publicly, what does he do in private? Let us now return to Counterpunch to see how badly members of Opus Dei beat themselves and how much they take pleasure in it.

"After I joined they gave me a barbed wire chain to wear on my leg for two hours a day and a whip to hit my buttocks with."
Sharon Clasen, former member of Opus Dei

"Blessed be pain. Loved be pain. Glorified be pain"
Josemarie Escriva, Founder, Opus Dei

If you have heard of Opus Dei recently, it is probably because several of the Catholic priests who advised Mel Gibson during the filming of "The Passion of the Christ" were powerful members of Opus Dei (See Cutting Edge articles in "The Passion" section")

VII. Concerned Women of America is worried that the "Hate Crimes" legislation just signed into law by California Governor Arnold Schwarzeneggar may result in Christian pastors going to jail simply for stating the Biblical teaching about homosexuality.

NEWS BRIEF: "Hate Crimes Law: Wake-Up Call for Pastors?", Concerned Women of America, 9/28/2004

"Concerned Women for America’s (CWA’s) California leaders hope the hate crimes law signed last week by Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggar (R) will wake up the state's pastors. CWA and other pro-family organizations had opposed the bill because it includes "sexual orientation" and lays the groundwork for suppression of speech critical of homosexuality. Regrettably, the governor has now revealed his socially liberal side, as this is the second bill catering to the homosexual agenda that he has signed ... The bill, SB 1234, also:

* "Defines 'sex' and 'gender' as a person’s gender identity and gender-related appearance and behavior ... Sex is no longer determined biologically, but is what a person feels that he or she is; blurs the lines of male and female.

* "Separates homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals into separate classes with increased penalties for crimes committed against them .. individuals could serve a minimum of one year in jail if convicted of a 'hate crime'

* "Includes 'threats, intimidation and coercion' as 'hate crimes'. This definition is based on the perception of the victim and allows for the possibility of Christians being convicted of 'hate crimes' for expressing their beliefs.

* "Requires any employer who hires five or more employees to enforce 'hate crime' law. Nonprofit or religious associations are exempt from SB 1234, but Christian bookstores or Christian schools can be prosecuted under 'hate crime' laws.

This type of "Hate Crime" is now the law in Canada, so it is not surprising to see it come into this country quickly. Nor are we surprised that Governor Schwarzeneggar (R), is the one by whom the law has come into reality in this country. During the campaign for California governor, we vigorously protested that Arnold was as Liberal as Ted Kennedy on certain moral issues as abortion and Gay Rights. Lamentably, we did not have to wait long to see the awful fruits of the governor's moral values.

However, too many Christians still voted for Schwarzeneggar and too many applauded when he spoke at Bush's Re-election Convention last month.

But, while this bill is certainly lamentable and can accurately be thought as another "sign of the times", a similar Federal Hate Crimes bill is quietly passing Congress.

NEWS BRIEF: "'Hate Crime' Law Passes Senate - On To House: Grievous Constitutional Destruction, The End Of Free Speech Nears" Rense.com, 9-3-4

"Recently, within a defense bill on Capitol Hill another bill was hidden. This hidden attachment pertains to so-called 'hate crimes'. The bill is Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act (S. 933), a pro-homosexual hate crimes bill. The Defense bill with the 'hate crime' attachment passed the senate 65 to 33, and will now be going to the house ... An example of a 'hate crime' under this new legislation would be to simply mention the word homosexual in any church...in any CHURCH...and that could be grounds to be arrested. Apparently Hatch and company have re-submitted the hate crimes bill, and it is now known as S.966. On the traditionalfamilyvalues website and elsewhere, it shows the bill listed as S.933."

This bill could be a tremendous embarrassment to President Bush as he is attempting to "connect" with his Evangelical Christian base during his re-election campaign. This fact is probably why the bill is so hidden right now. However, if the bill is passed before the election and if President Bush signs it into law, all Evangelical Christians will have ample proof to realize that Bush cannot be truly and genuinely Born Again.

Therefore, I believe it likely that this bill will conveniently sit in limbo somewhere short of the President's ink pen until after the election.

---------Conclusion----------------THE SPHERE OF EXALTATION—"Jesus leadeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves" (Mark 9:2).

We have all had times on the mount, when we have seen things from God's standpoint and have wanted to stay there; but God will never allow us to stay there. The test of our spiritual life is the power to descend; if we have power to rise only, something is wrong. It is a great thing to be on the mount with God, but a man only gets there in order that afterwards he may get down among the devil-possessed and lift them up. We are not built for the mountains and the dawns and aesthetic affinities, those are for moments of inspiration, that is all. We are built for the valley, for the ordinary stuff we are in, and that is where we have to prove our mettle. Spiritual selfishness always wants repeated moments on the mount. We feel we could talk like angels and live like angels, if only we could stay on the mount. The times of exaltation are exceptional, they have their meaning in our life with God, but we must beware lest our spiritual selfishness wants to make them the only time.

We are apt to think that everything that happens is to be turned into useful teaching, it is to be turned into something better than teaching, viz., into character. The mount is not meant to teach us anything, it is meant to make us something. There is a great snare in asking - What is the use of it? In spiritual matters we can never calculate on that line. The moments on the mountain tops are rare moments, and they are meant for something in God's purpose. [Oswald Chambers, "My Utmost For His Highest"]
