Sept 18, 2014 The Shemitah an Interview with Jonathan Cahn!

leave a comment »

As we approach the next Shemitah year that starts on September 25 or 26 of 2014, next week the new host of Prophecy in the News Dr Kevin Clarkson interviews the author of the new book The Mystery of the Shemitah Mr. Jonathan Cahn. The Shemitah year will end on September 14 Monday of 2015.

Why is this important, because, God has followed consistently a pattern of events that occur on these dates. As the harbinger book points out the events of 9/11 of 2001 started events that changed the world and the USA. Moreover the Shemitah repeated itself seven years latter in 2008 Rosh Hashanah with the collapse of the stock market 777.67 points. At the time I new it was God ordained because of the 777 and the date it fell on. Latter when I read the Harbinger I became aware of the many miraculous things that happened that day on the location of 9/11.

It appears that the Shemitah has been manifesting outside of the nation of Israel as well as it has happened in the US in 2001 and 2008, both events affecting the whole world also.

Interesting times we live on where the hand of God is seen happening all over the world.

Sept 18, 2014 Should Israel’s enemies fear their nuclear weapons or their God?

with 3 comments

Many years ago the release of the book The Sampson Option caused quite a stir. The book was about the revelations of Mordecai Vanuno an ex employee in the nuclear reactor of Dimona. He revealed at the time that Israel was in the possession of a nuclear arsenal that could be close to 300. This disclosure landed Vanuno in a controversy with the State of Israel who sent a team to kidnap him in England and bring him back to face Israeli justice. Vanuno was imprisoned many years and was released but has remained imprisoned to the borders of Israel.

It is important to understand that Israel is a very small nation with less than 9 million Jews. The Islamic nations populations are in the order of more than 1+ billion and want to destroy the nation of Israel. Proof of this fact is that in the 66 years of the founding of the State there have been 3 major wars launched against it with the purpose of genocide or annihilation.

What the world does not see to their detriment is that the God of Israel which is the true God who created all that is seen and unseen, whose power is infinite has a purpose for Israel which He considers His people, and will be their protector forever. It is not Israel strength and weapons that their enemies should fear, but their God the Holy Trinity.

Israel’s Worst-Kept Secret

Israel has a substantial arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Former CIA Director Robert Gates said so during his 2006 Senate confirmation hearings for secretary of defense, when he noted—while serving as a university president—that Iran is surrounded by “powers with nuclear weapons,” including “the Israelis to the west.” Former President Jimmy Carter said so in 2008 and again this year, in interviews and speeches in which he pegged the number of Israel’s nuclear warheads at 150 to around 300.

But due to a quirk of federal secrecy rules, such remarks generally cannot be made even now by those who work for the U.S. government and hold active security clearances. In fact, U.S. officials, even those on Capitol Hill, are routinely admonished not to mention the existence of an Israeli nuclear arsenal and occasionally punished when they do so.

The policy of never publicly confirming what a scholar once called one of the world’s “worst-kept secrets” dates from a political deal between the United States and Israel in the late 1960s. Its consequence has been to help Israel maintain a distinctive military posture in the Middle East while avoiding the scrutiny—and occasional disapprobation—applied to the world’s eight acknowledged nuclear powers.

But the U.S. policy of shielding the Israeli program has recently provoked new controversy, partly because of allegations that it played a role in the censure of a well-known national-laboratory arms researcher in July, after he published an article in which he acknowledged that Israel has nuclear arms. Some scholars and experts are also complaining that the government’s lack of candor is complicating its high-profile campaign to block the development of nuclear arms in Iran, as well as U.S.-led planning for a potential treaty prohibiting nuclear arms anywhere in the region.

The U.S. silence is largely unwavering, however. “We would never say flatly that Israel has nuclear weapons,” explained a former senior State Department official who dealt with nuclear issues during the Bush administration. “We would have to couch it in other language, we would have to say ‘we assume’ or ‘we presume that Israel has nuclear weapons,’ or ‘it’s reported’ that they have them,” the former official said, requesting that his name not be used due to the political sensitivity surrounding the topic.

President Barack Obama made clear that this four-decade-old U.S. policy would persist at his firstWhite House press conference in 2009, when journalist Helen Thomas asked if he knew of any nations in the Middle East with nuclear arms. “With respect to nuclear weapons, you know, I don’t want to speculate,” Obama said, as though Israel’s established status as a nuclear-weapons state was only a matter of rumor and conjecture.

So wary is Paul Pillar, a former U.S. national-intelligence officer for the Middle East, of making any direct, public reference to Israel’s nuclear arsenal that when he wrote an article this month in The National Interest, entitled “Israel’s Widely Suspected Unmentionables,” he referred to warheads as “kumquats” throughout his manuscript.

Even Congress has been coy on the subject. When the Senate Foreign Relations Committee published a 2008 report titled “Chain Reaction: Avoiding a Nuclear Arms Race in the Middle East,” it included chapters on Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey—but not Israel. The 61-page report relegated Israel’s nuclear arms to a footnote that suggested that Israel’s arsenal was a “perception.”

“This report does not take a position on the existence of Israeli nuclear weapons,” the report said. “Although Israel has not officially acknowledged it possesses nuclear weapons, a widespread consensus exists in the region and among experts in the United States that Israel possesses a number of nuclear weapons. For Israel’s neighbors, this perception is more important than reality.”

While former White House or cabinet-level officers—such as Gates—have gotten away with more candor, the bureaucracy does not take honesty by junior officials lightly. James Doyle, a veteran nuclear analyst at Los Alamos National Laboratory who was recently censured, evidently left himself open to punishment by straying minutely from U.S. policy in a February 2013 article published by the British journal Survival.

“Nuclear weapons did not deter Egypt and Syria from attacking Israel in 1973, Argentina from attacking British territory in the 1982 Falklands War or Iraq from attacking Israel during the 1991 Gulf War,” Doyle said in a bitingly critical appraisal of Western nuclear policy, which angered his superiors at the nuclear-weapons lab as well as a Republican staff member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Even though three secrecy specialists at the lab concluded the article contained no secrets, more senior officials overruled them and cited an unspecified breach as justification for censuring Doyle and declaring the article classified, after its publication. They docked his pay, searched his home computer, and, eventually, fired him this summer. The lab has said his firing—as opposed to the censure and search—was not related to the article’s content, but Doyle and his lawyer have said they are convinced it was pure punishment for his skepticism about the tenets of nuclear deterrence.

Neither Doyle nor his colleagues revealed if the sentence in his article about Israel’s arsenal was the one that provoked officials to nitpick about a security violation, but several independent experts have surmised it was.

Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists, said the clues lie in the Energy Department’s citation—in a document summarizing the facts behind Doyle’s unsuccessful appeal of his ill treatment—of a classification bulletin numbered “WPN-136.”

The full, correct title of that bulletin, according to an Energy Department circular, is “WNP-136, Foreign Nuclear Capabilities.” The classification bulletin itself is not public. But Aftergood said Doyle’s only reference to a sensitive foreign nuclear program was his mention of Israel’s, making it highly probable this was the cudgel the lab used against him. “I’m certain that that’s what it is,” Aftergood said in an interview.

The circumstances surrounding Doyle’s censure are among several cases now being examined by Department of Energy (DOE) Inspector General Gregory Friedman, as part of a broader examination of inconsistent classification practices within the department and the national laboratories, several officials said.

Doyle’s reference to the existence of Israel’s nuclear arsenal reflects the consensus intelligence judgment within DOE nuclear weapons-related laboratories, former officials say. But some said they find it so hard to avoid any public reference to the weapons that classification officers periodically hold special briefings about skirting the issue.

“It was one of those things that was not obvious,” a former laboratory official said, asking not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the topic. “Especially when there’s so much about it in the open domain.”

Israel’s nuclear-weapons program began in the 1950s, and the country is widely believed to have assembled its first three weapons during the crisis leading to the Six-Day War in 1967, according to the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a nonprofit group in Washington that tracks nuclear-weapons developments.

For decades, however, Israel itself has wrapped its nuclear program in a policy it calls amimut, meaning opacity or ambiguity. By hinting at but not confirming that it has these weapons, Israel has sought to deter its enemies from a major attack without provoking a concerted effort by others to develop a matching arsenal.

Israeli-American historian Avner Cohen has written that U.S. adherence to this policy evidently grew out of a September 1969 meeting between President Richard Nixon and Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. No transcript of the meeting has surfaced, but Cohen said it is clear the two leaders struck a deal: Israel would not test its nuclear weapons or announce it possessed them, while the United States wouldn’t press Israel to give them up or to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and would halt its annual inspections of Dimona, the site of Israel’s Negev Nuclear Research Center.

As an outgrowth of the deal, Washington, moreover, would adopt Israel’s secret as its own, eventually acquiescing to a public formulation of Israeli policy that was initially strenuously opposed by top U.S. officials.

“Israel will not be the first country to introduce nuclear weapons into the Middle East,” the boilerplate Israeli account has long stated. “Israel supports a Middle East free of all weapons of mass destruction following the attainment of peace.” When Nixon’s aides sought assurances that this pledge meant Israel would not actually build any bombs, Israeli officials said the word “introduce” would have a different meaning: It meant the country would not publicly test bombs or admit to possessing them, leaving ample room for its unacknowledged arsenal.

“While we might ideally like to halt actual Israeli possession,” then-National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger wrote in a July 1969 memo to Nixon that summarized Washington’s enduring policy, “what we really want at a minimum may be just to keep Israeli possession from becoming an established international fact.”

Even when Mordechai Vanunu, a technician at Dimona, provided the first detailed, public account of the program in 1986 and released photos he had snapped there of nuclear-weapons components, both countries refused to shift gears. After being snatched from Italy, Vanunu was imprisoned by Israel for 18 years, mostly in solitary confinement, and subsequently forbidden to travel abroad or deal substantively with foreign journalists. In an email exchange with the Center for Public Integrity, Vanunu indicated that he still faces restrictions but did not elaborate. “You can write me again when I am free, out of Israel,” he said.

The avoidance of candor has sometimes extended to private government channels. A former U.S. intelligence official said he recalled being flabbergasted in the 1990s by the absence of any mention of Israel in a classified document purporting to describe all foreign nuclear-weapons programs. He said he complained to colleagues at the time that “we’ve really got a problem if we can’t acknowledge the truth even in classified documents,” and finally won a grudging but spare mention of the country’s weaponry.

Gary Samore, who was President Obama’s top advisor on nuclear nonproliferation from 2009 to 2013, said the United States has long preferred that Israel hold to its policy of amimut, out of concern that other Middle Eastern nations would feel threatened by Israel’s coming out of the nuclear closet.

“For the Israelis to acknowledge and declare it, that would be seen as provocative,” he said. “It could spur some of the Arab states and Iran to produce weapons. So we like calculated ambiguity.” But when asked point-blank if the fact that Israel has nuclear weapons is classified, Samore—who is now at Harvard University—answered: “It doesn’t sound very classified to me—that Israel has nuclear weapons?”

The U.S. government’s official silence was broken only by accident, when, in 1979, the CIA released a four-page summary of an intelligence memorandum titled “Prospects for Further Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons” in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit environmental group.

“We believe that Israel already has produced nuclear weapons,” the 1974 report said, citing Israel’s stockpiling of large quantities of uranium, its uranium-enrichment program, and its investment in a costly missile system capable of delivering nuclear warheads. Release of the report triggered a spate of headlines. “CIA said in 1974 Israel had A-Bombs,” a New York Times headline declared. “Israel a Nuclear Club Member Since 1974, CIA Study Indicates,” announced The Washington Star.

But it stemmed from a goof.

John Despres, who was the CIA’s national-intelligence officer for nuclear proliferation at the time, said he was in charge of censoring or “redacting” the secret material from the report prior to its release. But portions he wanted withheld were released, he said in an interview, while sections that were supposed to be released were withheld.

“This was a sort of classic case of a bureaucratic screw-up,” said Despres, now retired. “People misinterpreted my instructions.” He said that as far as he knows, no one was disciplined for the mix-up. Moreover, in 2008, when the National Security Archive obtained a copy of the document under the Freedom of Information Act, that judgment remained unexcised.

But Washington’s refusal to confirm the obvious in any other way has produced some weird trips down the rabbit hole for those seeking official data about the Israeli arsenal. Bryan Siebert, who was the most senior career executive in charge of guarding DOE’s nuclear-weapons secrets from 1992 to 2002, said he recalls seeing a two-cubic-foot stack at one point of CIA, FBI, Justice, and Energy department documents about Israel’s nuclear program.

John Fitzpatrick, who since 2011 has served as director of the federal Information Security Oversight Office, confirmed that “aspects” of Israel’s nuclear status are considered secret by the United States. “We know this from classifying authorities at agencies who handle that material,” said Fitzpatrick, who declined to provide more details.

Kerry Brodie, director of communications for the Israeli embassy in Washington, similarly said no one there would discuss the subject of the country’s nuclear status. “Unfortunately, we do not have any comment we can share at this point,” she wrote in an email. A former speaker of the Israeli Knesset, Avraham Burg, was less discrete during a December 2013 conference in Haifa, where he said “Israel has nuclear and chemical weapons” and called the policy of ambiguity “outdated and childish.”

Through a spokesman, Robert Gates declined to discuss the issue. But a growing number of U.S. experts agree with Burg.

Pillar, for example, wrote in his article this month that the 45-year-old U.S. policy of shielding Israel’s program is seen around the world “as not just a double standard but living a lie. Whatever the United States says about nuclear weapons will always be taken with a grain of salt or with some measure of disdain as long as the United States says nothing about kumquats.”

Victor Gilinsky, a physicist and former member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission who has written about the history of the Israeli program, complained in a recent book that “the pretense of ignorance about Israeli bombs does not wash anymore. … The evident double standard undermines efforts to control the spread of nuclear weapons worldwide.”

J. William Leonard, who ran a government-wide declassification effort as President George W. Bush’s director of the Information Security Oversight Office from 2002 to 2008, commented that “in some regards, it undermines the integrity of the classification system when you’re using classification to officially protect a known secret. It can get exceedingly awkward, obviously.”

Aftergood said the secrecy surrounding Israel’s nuclear weapons is “obsolete and fraying around the edges. … It takes an effort to preserve the fiction that this is a secret,” he said. Meanwhile, he added, it can still be abused as an instrument for punishing federal employees such as Doyle for unrelated or politically inspired reasons. “Managers have broad discretion to overlook or forgive a particular infraction,” Aftergood said. “The problem is that discretion can be abused. And some employees get punished severely while others do not.”

Dana H. Allin, the editor of Doyle’s article in Survival magazine, said in a recent commentary published by the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London that “anyone with a passing knowledge of international affairs knows about these weapons.” He called the government’s claim that the article contained secrets “ludicrous” and said Doyle’s ordeal at the hands of the classification authorities was nothing short of Kafkaesque.


Sept 15, 2014 The Effervescent Pot of World War III

with one comment

The Effervescent Pot leading to World War III is well documented below by pastor Bob in his latest post on In his series All roads lead to Rome he documents and references the historical path taken by those whose intent is to bring the kingdom of the Antichrist and a one world government.

His work is well referenced and due to the difficult nature of uncovering hidden information some of the material may be incomplete or outdated in my opinion. The truth may be more gruesome and evil and well hidden.

Thank you pastor Bob for your exposure of this cabal where the bad people are masquerading as good people to deceive. Syria, Iran, North Korea and Cuba are evil nations that happen to oppose the plan in my opinion.


Pastor Bob (7 Sep 2014)
“All Roads Lead to Rome -6″

All Doves:Before the year 2000, there were ten or eleven countries without a Rothschild-controlled central bank.  Today, there are only four:  Syria, Iran, North Korea, and Cuba.  All of the countries in the middle east region that have been overthrown by the USA, or the Arab Spring, now have Rothschild-controlled central banks.  Why is this important?  It is a major key in the larger scope of why we have had near continuous global war after war since the beginning of the 20th century.  The video has aired multiple times on the Internet in the last nine years.

There is floating around on the Internet a video clip of retired Army General Wesley Clark, in which he tells of the Department of Defense plans to take down the Middle East five countries that where regime changes were in the plan for the US military to take down.  These countries, previously, all once had independent state central-banks, and once they were destroyed by the US military, they were immediately replaced with Rothschild-control central banks.  The video clip of Army General Wesley Clark has been around for close to a decade.  It was first aired on ‘DemocracyNow.TV’ and continues to be re-aired by ‘truther’ sites.  The next country to be taken down will be Syria.  The Obama administration has been seeking to do just that for well over a year-and-a-half.  The media craze on ISIS is the orchestrated deception that will enable President Obama’s plans to attack Syria and bring it under a Rothschild-controlled central bank.  We should expect the imminent fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1-2 prophecy in the near future.

It speaks to the globalist agenda of a one-world-economic system and a one-world-government and how it is being achieved.  I remind you that the House of Rothschild has been the “Fiduciary” agent for the Vatican’s money-lending activities since back to around 1823.  The Vatican and the Rothschild’s have been interlocked ever since. The Rothschild’s are the bankers for the Vatican.  The Vatican is the headquarters of the old Holy Roman Empire.  The sitting pope is the ‘Pontifex Maximus’, the office of the last Caesar of the old Roman Empire.

The primary financial agent and secular control center for the Vatican is the Crown city of London, a city within the larger realm of London.  This is where the Rothschild’s conduct their banking and the affairs of the former Holy Roman Empire are conducted through the Temple (former Knights Templar temple) confiscated by the Roman Catholic Church during the early Inquisition.  It is located in the Crown colony of London, which is still a Roman city with its own crown, laws, and customs (see the Magna Carta, of 1215 AD, Section 13).  It is from this temple that all lawyers are accredited (including those in the USA) with the BAR (British Accreditation of Regency) and receive the title “Esquire” and pledge to uphold the laws of the Holy Roman Empire and its One-World scheme.  The lawyers of the USA control politics, business, finance, and the justice system.

The One-World-Government is built and controlled by the Vatican’s banks and lawyers.  The Monarchy of England have been pawns of the Vatican since the Treaty of Verona of 1213 AD.  The Crown of the City of London was made superior to the Crown of of Great Britain when King John signed the Magna Carta, thus violating the terms of the Treaty of Verona.  Up until 2003, the Royal Bank of Canada (a Rothschild central bank) had as its logo the Lion of Judah (representing the British Crown) holding one paw on the world and licking the Crown of the City of London.  The IRS/Federal Reserve System is nothing more than a collection agency for the international bankers through the IMF.  The Bank of England and Vatican split the take 40/60; 40% to the Bank of England and 60% to the Vatican.

The Treaty of Paris of 1763 designated King George III, as ‘Arch-Treasurer’ and ‘Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire’.  According to the ‘Encyclopedia Judaica’, the Rothschild’s bear the title of “Guardians of the Vatican Treasury”.  The Vatican Treasury, as “Fiduciary” agents, holds the imperial wealth of Rome.  The Imperial wealth grows in proportion to its victories in war – as the Jesuit empowerment ‘Regimini Militantis Ecclesiae’ implies, the ‘Church-at-War’ is more necessary than the ‘Church-at-Peace’.  According to H. Russell Robinson’s ‘Illustrated Armour of Imperial Rome’, Caesarean soldiers protect themselves in battle with shields painted red.

Since the soldiery is the State’s most valuable resource (the Council of Trent admitted this in preferring Jesuits to all other religious orders), it is easy to understand why the red shield was identified with the very life of the Church.  Hence, the appropriateness of the name Rothschild, or German for “red shield”.  The appointment of the Rothschild’s as the Vatican’s “Fiduciary” agents gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy.  Who would ever have thought to search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church?  It is fascinating that, as Mayer (or Meyer, as some spell it) Amschel Rothschild’s sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Mayer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gave the notarigon MARS.  Isn’t Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly mainfestations is “the red planet”?  As the Rothschild and Sons grew, it became famous for helping nations go to war.  The House of Rothschild always finance both sides of an altercation of war.

This leads us to the point of Albert Pike’s vision of three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One-World-Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place in the 20th and 21st centuries.  In a letter that he wrote to Giuseppe Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871, Pike graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to to bring about the One-World-Order.  Supposedly, the letter was in the hands of the British Museum Library in London, but the library denied that to be the case, to numerous researchers.  Yet, it seems strange that a Cardinal Rodriguez should have said that it existed in 1925.

It appears that Commander William Guy Carr learned about this letter from Cardinal Caroy Rodriguez of Santiago, Chile, who write the book ‘The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled’.  There is nothing conclusive in the way of proof one way or another of the letter’s existence.  Given the nature of the letter, it would not really be a surprise as to denial of its existence.  Enough evidence has surfaced over the decades that to simply dismiss the letter as non-existent becomes problematic.

According to the content of the letter from Pike to Mazzini, The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism.  The divergence caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war.  At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”

Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.

The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists.  This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine.  During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”

After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments.  In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871, should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements.  In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the French Revolution.  In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before the French
Revolution broke out.  Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.

The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of the Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Modern Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.  Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual, and economic exhaustion.  We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and the most bloody turmoil.  Then everywhere, the citizens, are obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass and direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.  This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the instruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World.  This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides.  This Third World War is on our near future, and recent events over the past decade show us that it is not far off.  It could even be said that it has already begun if we want to include the events going back to 1990 with the first Gulf war on Iraq.  I would submit to the reader the relative events in Iraq and Syria, with ISIS or ISIL is part of the propaganda to whip up public support for an attack on Syria.  The media was abuzz, as well as the Internet with the hype of the ‘globalist’ types, like Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham.  The so-called terrorists of ISIS or ISIL have been funded by an Anglo-American coalition, John McCain met with them last year and is pictured with Muslims leaders of the group known as ISIS.  That had been well documented [the Ango-American funding] early on in August of this year.  This latest issue is a repeat of the bogus reasons for the attack on Iraq and Afghanistan.  Sadly America’s Low Information folks were and are being driven by fear of Islamic radicals and beheadings.  It doesn’t take but one or two beheadings in the media to whip up the frenzy of propaganda for another war.  In late August Pope Francis called for another Crusade, words to that effect.

The exploiters of Edward Bernay’s social psychology are working full-time to achieve the goal of the Third World War envisioned by Freemason Grand Master Albert Pike.  The propaganda is everywhere for this attack against to dethrone Syria’s government and more so, the Syrian central bank.  ISIS or ISIL is a scripted pysop according to many independent intelligence sources.  That fact is widely reported on the Internet.

Sept 14, 2014 At the sound of the drum we march blindly to WWIII, an expose of the causes!

leave a comment »

It is a fact of the world we live in that the majority of the public is manipulated by forces that they can not and do not understand.

The article by pastor Bob is well documented and researched. It exposes these forces that control governments and economies. Behind them is Lucifer and the power of the demonic spirits he controls.

Thank you pastor Bob for your well articulated and researched post.


Pastor Bob (7 Sep 2014)
“All Roads Lead to Rome -5″

All Doves:

So much of our world today is little more than smoke and mirror theater, designed to confuse, deceive, and distract the public from the reality that is masked by propaganda.  The reader needs to be aware that you and I are both the prize and the victim of the coming Jesuit-controlled One-World-Order.  Our only hope is the Lord Christ Jesus and the safest place we can be is “in Christ”.

The master of propaganda (advertising) was an Austrian by the name of Edward Bernay, recognized by the business world as the author of public relations, and back in 1928, he wrote a book ‘History is a Weapon’, which lays out his work on “propaganda”. When he died in 1995, his obituary named him “the father of public relations”.  It was required reading in one of my courses in college as a history major.  It is so popular that anyone can access it freely today on the Internet.  Bernay combined the ideas of crowd psychology and, along with the psycho-analytical ideas of his uncle Sigmund Freud.  He was once named one of the most influential 100 Americans of the 20th century by ‘Life’ magazine.

This man influences you today, despite your not knowing it.  If you watch television, read a magazine, a newspaper, or pop-up on your computer, you have been touched by Edward Bernay’s work.  The “Low Information” people of the world are often referred to as the “sheeple”, which is a generic blanket term used to describe the “manipulated”.  He developed and refined the concept of the “press release” and took credit for breaking the cultural taboo of women smoking in public.

I mention Edward Bernay as an example of what has been taking place in the press and media since May of this year.  You may have noticed the drumbeat of the press, politicians, and corporate types calling for war with Russia in the Ukraine.  The Obama administration has lied repeatedly about the need to crush Russia in the Ukraine.  Between the EU, NATO, and the USA, being spearheaded by Obama, they want war.  They are trying to provoke a war for which they can blame it on the Russians and Mr. Putin.  They have tried to pin the blame for the downing of the Malaysian commercial jet over Ukrainian air space on Russia and eastern-Ukraine rebels, saying  that it was shot down by a Russian ground-to-air missile, when in reality, after examination of wreckage debris, it was confirmed that it was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet with an air-to-air missile and 30mm bullet holes in the forward portion of the commercial jet.  Then on several occasions they published news reports that Russian combat units had crossed over the border into the Ukraine.  In fact, they even put video on television for the public to believe that these attacks were real, when in fact, they were nothing more than footage from a video game.

The plain and simple facts are that the EU, NATO, and the USA want to start a war with Russia and Vladimir Putin has refused to take their bate in the traps being baited and set for him and the state of Russia.  As of a few days ago, Russian leaders set for a peace treaty plan for the eastern portion of the Ukraine now in dispute.  The EU, NATO, and Obama has disingenuously responded by offering more sanctions against the Russians, and they are assembling a military contingent of 10,000 quick or rapid-response force element to be used at a time when they deem appropriate to attack the eastern Ukraine.  All of this war rhetoric is going to end badly because sanctions will be met with counter-sanctions, etc, etc.  The international banksters are driving the propaganda rhetoric to bring on the Third World War visioned by Masonic Grandmaster, Albert Pike.

In response to the west’s tightening the screws on Putin, Putin warned the west as they were meeting for strategy meetings in Wales over the Labor Day week, Putin put out the message, reminding the EU/NATO in the west not to mess with Russia; and to remind them that Russia has nuclear weapons, huge nukes, and as a last resort they would use them if pushed into a corner.  Just after Labor Day, Putin dumped into the public media, the evidence and details of who was really responsible for the infamous September 11th World Trade Towers attacks.  The information in that report, which I provided the link to in my post “All Secrets Known” notes the passages in the Bible where we are explicitly told that all things hidden will be exposed in the end of days.

I’m suggesting to the reader that once that report becomes known, far and wide, in the greater public arena, this could become the chief reason the world turns against Israel as the Bible notes in several places.   It will so anger the Christian community, which is made up of many different groups that support Israel, sometimes blindly so.  And for those that did not like Israel before, this news will be simply more bad news with sovereign states becoming more incensed to learn that Israel, with the US and UK approval are complicit and responsible for the several thousand that died that day and continue to die as a result of being poisoned by radioactive fallout from the inhaled dust that resulted in the vaporization of the World Trade Towers.

The consequence of Vladimir Putin releasing the truth, previously classified as “state secrets” until this release, about who is responsible for 9 – 11 may precipitate further sanctions by the EU/NATO/USA ratcheting up the tension.  It may be the fuse that sets off the entire chain of events that lead to the Ezekiel 39 war scenario.  We know from the Bible what happens to Gog and Magog, but we have no indication of what happens to its opponents responsible for destroying Gog and Magog.  From the perspective of Russia, it would be a natural response, if not a given, to expect Russia to retaliate with nukes as a last resort. Vladimir Putin is waging a counter-attack by asymetrical-warfare.  I monitor a web site that shows in real-time “cyber-attacks” against the US and the country’s computer systems.  It should be noted that it also shows “cyber-attacks” by the USA as well.  The “state-secret” that Vladimir Putin released last week are an indictment of the George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush administration, and are an indictment of the State of Israel, as well as a number of countries that benefited from their corruption and evil acts.  Revelation 9:18 describes what would most likely be a nuclear exchange war that will destroy 1/3rd of human life on Earth.

All this is prefatory history that really speaks to who really is behind the “big picture” of using war to bring about a final “Holy War” that will bring into existence a Satanic “One-World-Order”.  What I share in this series is easily discerned once you know and understand who it is that was originally revealed in the writings of Masonic Grandmaster Albert Pike in the 19th century.  Very few outsiders know about the intimate plans of Albert Pike and the architects of the New World Order.  Based upon a vision revealed to him, Albert Pike wrote a blueprint of events that would play themselves out in the 20th century, with more of these events to come.  But first a little background on Albert Pike.

Albert Pike was born in Boston, MA on December 29th, 1809.  He studied at Harvard, and later served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army.  After the Civil War he was found guilty of treason and jailed, only to be pardoned by fellow Freemason President Andrew Johnson on April 22, 1866, who met with him the next day at the White House.  On June 20th, 1867, Scottish Rite officials conferred on President Johnson, the 4th to 32nd Freemasonry degrees, and then later that day Pike went on to Boston to dedicate a Masonic Temple.

From everything we know about Albert Pike, he was brilliant, a genius, able to read and write in 16 different languages.  At various stages of his life, he was a poet, philosopher, frontiersman, soldier, humanitarian and philanthropist.  As a 33rd degree Freemason, he was one of the founding fathers, and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 until his death in 1891.  Leaders of Freemasonry will deny it, but evidence has long since been known that Pike was a top leader in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan or KKK.

Albert Pike was a Satanist, dabbled in the occult realm, and he apparently possessed a bracelet which he used to summon Lucifer, with whom he had constant communications.  Its incidental whether one believes that or not, but it is reported on by many different scholars that have spent their careers researching Pike.  He was the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the ‘Order of the Palladium’ (Sovereign Council of Wisdom), which had been founded in Paris in 1737.  Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras in the 5th century, and it was the cult of Satan that was introduced to the inner circle of the Masonic Lodges.  It was aligned with the Palladism of the Templars.  In 1801, Isaac Long, a Jew, brought a statute of Baphomet (Satan) to Charleston, South Carolina where he helped to establish the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite with Pike.  Long apparently chose Charleston, SC because it was geographically located on the 33rd parallel of latitude (as is Baghdad, Iraq), and this Council is considered to be the Mother Supreme Council of all Masonics in America.  While some scholars say it is for the entire world, I would not agree.  Tim Cohen author of ‘Antichrist and a Cup of Tea’ says the world’s senior lodge is “The Order of the Garter” in Wales, where Prince Charles and his son William are installed as members of the ‘Knights of the Roundtable’.  All Masons report to the Lodge known as the “Order of the Garter”.  I have included Tim Cohen’s book on the running bibliography below.  Keep in mind my note from the last post, that the Jesuits infiltrated Freemasonry right from the beginning.  There was a grand merger of Illuminized Freemasonry and Vatican Jesuits, set up by the Jesuits on June 29, 1963, and known as the ‘Masters of the Illuminati’.  Now deceased, Jesuit Fr. Malachi Martin, reported this event in one or two of his books.

Albert Pike was Isaac Long’s successor, and he changed the name of the Order to the ‘New and Reformed Palladian Rite’ (or Reformed Palladium).  It isn’t necessary to go into all the various degrees of Freemasonry at this point, other than to note that it is in the 19th degree of Freemasonry that one finds out who the god of Freemasonry is, none other than the adversary himself, ‘Lucifer’.  As part of the ritual in Masonry, as a person chooses to rise in the Lodge, the initiate is always asked “what is it that they are seeking, and their response is always to be “more light”.”  Albert Pike’s book ‘Morals and Dogma’, the Masonic Bible is given to every Lodge member, and is to be returned on the death of the Lodge brother.  Because it doesn’t always happen, copies often appear in old bookstores.  Pastor Mike Hoggard of the Watchman Video Broadcast acquired his copy that way.  I got mine through the death of an uncle.

Pike’s right-hand man was Phileas Walder, from Switzerland, who was a former Lutheran clergyman, a Masonic leader, occultist, and spiritualist.  Pike worked closely with Giuseppe Mazzini of Italy (1805-1872), who was a 33rd degree Mason, and who became head of the Illuminati in 1834, and who also founded the Mafia in 1860.  Together with Mazzini, Lord Henry Palmerston of England (1784-1865), a 33rd degree Mason, and Otto von Bismarck from Germany (1815-1898), a 33rd degree Mason, Albert Pike intended to use the Palladium Rite to create a Satanic umbrella group that would tie all Masonic groups together.  In the United States, every state has a Grand Lodge that oversees the local lodges in communities within their state.  They are everywhere in the country.  I currently live in a small village in a rural county, and the county seat has a lodge directly across the street from where I get a haircut.

The important point to remember is that not all Masonic Lodge members are Satanic or evil, in most cases they are there merely for the contacts the fraternity brings in what they can use to enhance their own contacts in business activities.  Freemasonry, is much more than a secret society of secrets, “Its a society with secrets” as S.Brent Morris expresses it, in his formal capacity as consultant to the History Channel documentaries on Freemasonry.  The reader would benefit by examining this 33rd degree high-ranking Freemason’s bio/vitae on the Internet.  Masons never allow the name of Jesus Christ to be expressed within the Lodge.  You can be a Mason, even if you are a Christian, a Jew, or a Muslim.  Just never mention the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Lodge.  Their god is referred to as the Great Architect of the Universe.  Masonry is built on a “dualistic” structure and their motto is “Do what thou will”.  More about all that at another time.

Wherever I have been an appointed United Methodist pastor to a local church, it was only a matter of months before I would be approached and invited to a Lodge breakfast, usually hosted at another church where the pastor was a Lodge brother, to introduce me to the good works the Lodge does, and to interest me in becoming a Mason.  The person that invited me usually was a church member, and they would offer to sponsor me in joining the Lodge if I was interested in joining.  The organization say they don’t recruit but that is nothing but a deception.  The Lodge today recruits the brightest minds of the Greek fraternities on college and university campuses today.  Having members of the clergy as Lodge brothers gives an informal image of tacit approval and thus take advance of the credulity of people.  My impression is that they do not give up easy when it comes to recruiting a pastor or clergyman.  They don’t take “no” for an answer and come back again the next year when they have their next recruiting breakfast.

Albert Pike died on April 2, 1891, and was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, although the corpse of Pike currently lies in the headquarters of the Council of the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in Washington, DC.  Albert Pike made his mark before the war in Arkansas as a lawyer and writer.  But as a Confederate Brigadier-General (one star), according to the ‘Arkansas Democrat’ of July 31, 1978, he was a complete “WASH-OUT”, not a hero.  That fact notwithstanding, General Albert Pike is the only Confederate general with a statute on U.S. Federal property in Washington, DC.  I’ll give you three guesses as to why this is so.  He was honored as the Southern regional leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.  The statute stands on a granite pedestal near the foot of Capitol Hill, between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street NW.

I’m going to shift focus here and take the reader back to the era of the hatched plan of the Illuminati at the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad, the point at which the idea of a One-World-Order was conceived.  Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811) formed the Order of Perfectibilists on May 1, 1776 (May Day) observed throughout the world by anarchists, communists, and revolutionaries alike.  Adam Weishaupt, a Jew, was a Jesuit that taught Canon (Church) Law at the University of Ingolstadt.  The name was changed to the ‘Illuminati’ (meaning the enlightened ones).  This era in history is referred to as the period of the “Enlightenment”.  Unfortunately, public schools long ago whitewashed the term and give the impression that it was a time of great cultural advancement and intellectual freedom.

All that I post in this series is relevant and important to understanding the central idea of this series of posts, that all roads lead to Rome.  The Illuminati was founded under the pretext to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas, but Weishaupt’s Jesuit background influenced both the background, character, and direction of the Illuminati, such that the expressed dominant aim of the Order became to abolish Protestant Christianity, and overturn all civil government.  As I note this I am reminded of a story on the wire September 3rd of 2014 about the fact that Pope Francis made a statement that has angered many of his constituency.  He tweeted a statement that angered Christians in general.  Such a statement even to Roman Catholics was controversial but even more it reflected the Pope’s ignorance of the Bible in related statements about distinctions between Christians and Catholics.  The exact words of his “tweet” were, The Christian who does not feel that the Virgin Mary is his or her mother is an orphan.”

An Italian revolutionary leader, Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872), a 33rd degree Mason, was selected by the Illuminati to head their worldwide organization in 1834.  Keep in mind, Mazzini founded the Mafia in 1860.  This ought to tell you what kind of a character he was.  Because of his revolutionary activities in Europe, the Bavarian government (Germany) cracked down on the Illuminati and other secret societies for allegedly plotting a massive overthrow of Europe’s monarchies.  As the Illuminati’s secrets were revealed, they were persecuted and eventually disbanded, only to re-establish themselves inside the other organizations of which Freemasonry was the key fraternity to host the parasitic worm of the Illuminati.

During Mazzini’s leadership, he enticed Albert Pike into the (now formally disbanded, but still operating) Illuminati.  Pike was fascinated by the idea of a one-world-government, and when asked by Mazzini, he readily agreed to write a ritual that guided the transition from average high-ranking Masons into a top-ranking Illuminati Mason (33rd degree).  Masonic degrees above the 32nd are extended only by invitation.  The lower degrees are granted by classes and tuition fees.  Since Mazzini also wanted Pike to head the Illuminati’s American chapter, he clearly felt Pike was worthy of such a task.  Mazzini’s intention was that once a Mason had made his way up the Freemason ladder and proven himself worthy, the highest ranking members would offer membership to the ‘society within a society’.  During this process the higher-degree Masons would observe and assess the loyalty of those seeking “more light”.

It is precisely this reason that most Freemasons vehemently deny the evil intentions of their fraternity.  Since the vast majority never reach the 30th degree, (most only complete the first 3-degrees of the Blue Lodge) they would not be aware of the real purpose behind Masonry.  When instructing Pike how the rituals should be developed, Mazzini wrote a letter explaining why extreme secrecy was to be maintained between the Lodge and its different degrees system.  The letter was dated January 22, 1870, and is well-known as to its content today.  The key point is to remember is that Freemasonry wasn’t started by Pike, rather it was infiltrated by the Illuminati (i.e. Jesuits), who were looking for respectability in a forum in which to hide their clandestine activities.  Pike as a Satanist became the individual that reorganized it, wrote its degree-system of hierarchy.  While every Mason is given a copy of Pike’s Masonic bible, ‘Morals and Dogma’, few ever read it.  It’s a good treatment for insomnia.

After Mazzini’s death on March 11, 1872, Albert Pike appointed Adriano Lemmi (1822-1896), a 33rd degree Mason, and a banker from Florence, Italy, to run their subversive activities in Europe.  Lemmi was a supporter of patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, and may have been active in the Luciferian Society founded by Pike.  Lemmi, in turn, was succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin.  The revolutionary activities of all these men were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers; all of them dominated by the House of Rothschild.

In addition to the Supreme Council in Charleston, SC, Pike went on to establish 23 Supreme Councils throughout the world.  In a future post, I will cover the interesting background to the selection of Washington, DC to be the Capitol of the USA.  The property that made up the 10-square-mile area known as the District of Columbia was donated to George Washington’s federal government by the Daniel Carroll family and brother of Roman Catholic Jesuit Bishop John Carroll, who also founded the renown Jesuit Georgetown University.  The property known as the District of Columbia was recorded in 1663 in Maryland property records as new “Rome“, and the specific property was owned by a John Pope, later acquired by the Daniel Carroll family.  The southern border of the land was named for the Tiber River in Rome, Italy.  Today, we know it as the Potomac River.

Incidentally, Rome is built on seven hills described in Revelation -(Revelation 17:1-9,18), but it might surprise you that Washington, DC (once called new Rome) is also built on seven hills.  They are:

1.  Capitol Hill
2.  Meridian Hill
3.  Floral Hills
4.  Forest Hills
5.  Hillbrook
6.  Hillcrest
7.  Knox Hill

In Biblical prophecy, at the end of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed.  Will this city be Rome or Washington, DC?  Makes you wonder!

It is not conspiracy theory that Washington, DC was founded by Jesuits and Freemasons.  It is a stone fact of history of Freemasonry,  It is a well known Masonic fact that George Washington, himself was a Freemason, as were 25 of his Revolutionary Army generals were as well.  Mayor Charles Pierre L’Enfant, a French Catholic and Freemason designed the layout of the city.  Tupper Saussy in his book, ‘Rulers of Evil’ traced early property plot records and discovered the survey plot number for the White House was originally lot #666, located at the base of the upside down Baphomet symbol, visible only from the air above the White House.  If you are a skeptic, you can access this book on the Internet and read it for yourself.  Jesuits and Freemasons are deeply involved in the ongoing relationship between Washington, DC, the Vatican in Rome, and the Crown at London, England.  These three cities are all independent city-states.  Google to see the flag for the District of Columbia.  The flag contains three red stars above two red bars against a white background.  This was said to have been taken from General Washington’s coat-of-arms by the designer himself and later led to the adoption of the flag in 1938.  Keep in mind that within Freemasonry, things, symbols, signs, objects often hide their true meanings and while often have hidden dual meanings, they are hidden in plain sight.

President George Washington was a Deist, and supposedly a member of the Church of England, but Catholic web sites claim that on his death bed he converted to Roman Catholicism.  According to the web site President Washington sent one of his slaves across the Potomac to bring back his friend Father Leonard Neal, S.J.  Jesuit Father Neal spent some time alone in his room.  When he returned to the Jesuit house, his fellow religious brothers asked him the outcome of his visit and he simply answered, “Everything has been taken care of.”  The entire story is related in the Jesuit annals.  The Negro slaves, who had been imbued with Baptist and anti-Catholic bigotry, passed on the story that “Master George had been seduced by the scarlet woman of Rome.”  Our first President had always kept a beautiful picture of Our Lady in His living room; he adopted the Catholic practice of blessing himself before meals; he was the largest contributor, giving more than even Bishop Carroll, to the building of St. Augustine’s church in Philadelphia; he very often attended Mass; and he often told his troops that if they did not refrain from abusing the Holy Name of Jesus they would surely lose the war.

In part 6, I will deal with Albert Pike’s vision of three world wars that would be required to wear out the nations of the world and that they would, out of exhaustion and debt from war, surrender and submit to the New World Order.

I know that most of this material on “All Roads Lead to Rome” will be new to the reader but it is documented history, it is an ongoing testimony that Rome never changes.  They were determined to crush the Reformation and restore the temporal power the Catholic Church lost as a result of that little chubby monk Martin Luther, and how he discovered in the Greek text that we are all “justified by faith.”  Remember this event that set off the One-World-Order.  Its not really a new New-World-Order, but rather the Old-World-Order repackaged.  Ironically, I visited the historical site in 1958 near Hanau, Germany where the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad was held.  I had an Army buddy that had been a librarian at the Library of Congress before being drafted into the military, but originally from my hometown in Pittsburgh, PA.  He was Catholic, and had also been a history major in college and graduate school.  We would go castle and medieval church touring on the weekends when we were not on duty and I was the designated driver since I was not a consumer of alcoholic beverages.  He paid for lunch and I did the driving.  We were stationed at Giessen, Germany, 70 miles north of Hanau.  Castle touring was a fun event for off-duty GI’s.  We drove one fall Saturday morning down to the old castle ruins where the 1782 Congress of Wilhemsbad was originally convened by the founder Adam Weishaupt and other Masonic leaders.  The castle was the summer home of Wilhelm, the heir to Hesse-Kassel, a district close to the city of Hanau, Germany.  It was decades later before I realized how important this site played in the Illuminati’s plan for a One-World-Government.

Because the House of Rothschild has been the ‘Fiduciary’ agent of the Vatican for two centuries, I thought readers might be interested in ‘The Rothschild Manifesto’ of circa 1840.

1.  LAW is FORCE in disguise, USE LAW. (Statutory Law, codes, regulations).
2.  Political freedom is an IDEA, not a FACT and is merely an illusion and distraction.
3.  USE “LIBERALISM” to obtain control via “GRADUALISM” through “EDUCATION”.  (Think of outcome based  education that has been used for more than twenty years, and then “Common Core” today to dumb down America’s students.)
4.  GOVERNMENTS are to be destroyed by either EXTERNAL (War) or INTERNAL (Liberalism and corruption) means.
5.  We must get CONTROL over all Government economies by controlling the MONEY supply.  (Central banking, Federal Reserve System).
6.  The END always justifies the MEANS.  “ALWAYS”!
7.  FORCE & MIGHT = RIGHT, there are no absolute moral or ethical codes.  (No Biblical Law).
9.  WE will become SUPREME LORDS over all people.
10.  The power of MONEY must remain hidden and SECRET until we are in such a position of POWER that no one can stop our plan.  (Fractional reserve banking and debt based paper currency.)
12.  We have the RIGHT TO SEIZE ANY AND ALL PROPERTY, by whatever means necessary, to bring all PEOPLE UNDER OUR CONTROL.  (Merger of Admiralty/Maritime Law and Equity Law, abolishing the Common Law, corruption and registration of title / Property taxes.)
13.  We will use the terms “LIBERTY, EQUALITY, and FRATERNITY” which will establish a “NEW ARISTOCRACY”.  (French Revolution). (“Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity” is the Masonic motto.)
14.  The qualifications for this “ARISTOCRACY” will be WEALTH, which we will CONTROL.
15.  WARS WILL BE INSTIGATED, FINANCED and DIRECTED so that we control BOTH SIDES, placing all parties FURTHER INTO OUR DEBT.  (Think of all wars from the Revolutionary War through to today and the coming World War III).
16.  Candidates for PUBLIC OFFICE will be selected, educated, and groomed, servile and obedient.

Meyer Amschel Rothschild also stated in the late 18th Century: “GIVE ME CONTROL OF A NATION’S CURRENCY, AND I CARE NOT WHO MAKES THE LAWS.”

While all of this may seem rather hopeless, I merely remind you that we do have hope; It comes in the form of “The Blessed Hope” of our coming Lord Christ Jesus.  It is only hopeless for those that have rejected the Gospel message.  Unfortunately, the Low Information folks will either choose to dismiss the truth of God’s Word, backed up by history of Satan’s plan that will subject everyone alive to receive the “Mark” of the Beast.

God told us history in advance [prophecy is nothing more than history foretold] of what would come to pass, for the purpose of our believing in Him and to receive His Redemptive Plan by Faith through Grace.  Think about this you “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” folks, if God was going to force the last days Church to go through the Seven Year Tribulation, why would He have even bothered to have His prophets and the Apostles, and Paul of Tarsus go to such length, depth and detail writing about the end of days, if it was not to warn us, the final generation, to be “In Christ”.

The entire Bible is a Parable and a Theme about Deliverance of those willing to trust Him by Faith – 100.1%.  The Theme is “Deliverance before Judgment”.

Sept 13, 2014 Economic collapse coming on this month?

leave a comment »

The Bible talks about a world economic collapse during the Tribulation as the third seal is broken that introduces the black horse.

It looks from the article below that the conditions to bring this about are already at the door waiting for the time to take hold.

Jonathan Khan talks about the Shemitah year starting in Sept 25, 2014 (Rosh Hashanah) and going to 2015. Are we going to see this happening 12 days from now?

Mark Biltz also discovered the tetrad of blood moons starting on April 14 this year and ending in Sept 28-29 of 2015.


Senator and CIA Insider Accuse Federal Reserve of Covering Up Secret Bankruptcy


Is the Federal Reserve covering up a dangerous crisis that threatens to bring down, not just the United States, but the entire global economy?

According to two men, one a high-ranking member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, and the other, a 2016 Presidential hopeful, the answer is yes.

They both believe the world’s most powerful central bank is secretly bankrupt and Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen will do whatever it takes to keep the public in the dark about this startling situation.

If they’re correct, every American should fear the unavoidable endgame their evidence is predicting.

Recently, in an emotional speech from the Senate floor, Senator Rand Paul declared that the Federal Reserve is now “insolvent.”

Senator Paul has long been an advocate of an official audit of the Fed’s books, which polls show 74% of the American people agree with.

And in a separate statement he explained why.

“The Fed’s operations under a cloak of secrecy have gone on too long and the American people have a right to know what the Federal Reserve is doing with our nation’s money supply,” Senator Paul declared.

And an unlikely ally has stepped forward to help him provide the public with the answers they are seeking.

The Secret Fed Gamble
That Could Kill the Dollar

An alarming pattern has caused many in the Intelligence Community to secretly prepare for a “worst-case scenario.” Click here to see it….

Unfortunately, they are downright frightening.

Jim Rickards is the CIA’s Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor.

In an exclusive interview with Money Morning, Rickards revealed that he and his team have detected a series of dangerous economic signals that predict a fast-approaching $100 trillion meltdown.

And they believe it will lead to an event more severe than the 1930s.

A 25-year Great Depression.

Their estimated date for this catastrophe is March 12, 2015.

Making matters worse, they believe it is impossible to stop.

Rickards shared an alarming collection of charts in the discussion that proved our country has secretly reached, or exceeded, crisis levels in our stock market, with our dollar, and banking system that are more severe than in 1929.

Frightening: This chart reveals which banks could collapse (and how soon). If your life savings is in a major bank, please look at this now.

He examined two charts in particular that specifically place much of the blame for this on the Federal Reserve.

“What you can see from this first chart is that for over a decade the Federal Reserve steadily grew its capital reserves. Even after the recession struck, on the surface at least, they kept strengthening their financial backing,” he explained.

“And today they have over $56.2 billion of cash on hand. $56.2 billion sounds like a lot of money, but it’s not the full picture.”

“You have to compare the cash the Federal Reserve has on hand with the debt they’ve taken on since the recession. And when you do the picture becomes a lot scarier, because that figure is $4.3 trillion,” Rickards continued.

“So you have $56.2 billion propping up $4.3 trillion worth of debt. That means the Fed is leveraged 77-1. Prior to our 2008 meltdown that was only 22-1.”


“To folks like me at the CIA that says one thing, the whole thing is unstable and it’s ready to explode,” he warned.

Rickards then cited two private meetings he held with Federal Reserve officials that suggested they know this too.

“I spoke to a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, (name withheld), and said to her I think the Fed is insolvent,” Rickards revealed.

“She refused to answer the question directly initially, but I pressed her and she said, ‘we are but it doesn’t matter’.”

Rickards’ second meeting explained why this high-ranking Fed board member came to that conclusion.

“I was at a recent conclave in the Rocky Mountains with officials from the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. They’ll say things in private that they won’t admit publicly,” Rickards explained.

“They handed me a copy of Janet Yellen’s playbook. And while a lot of Americans have no idea what her big plans are, this playbook revealed everything. It’s more of the same. She’s going to just keep printing money.”

“Don’t ever think the Fed knows what they’re doing. They can print all the money they want, but if people aren’t using it in the economy than it is going to collapse.”

What makes Rickards’ and Paul’s alliance so unusual is that Senator Paul is no fan of the CIA.

During a marathon, 13-hour filibuster he successfully halted the appointment of the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He cited the public’s need to be made aware of the White House and intelligence community’s use of drones as the reason for his actions.

However, this has not stopped Rickards and Paul from uniting on what Rickards believes is the greatest threat to our country.

In fact, in a Treasury meeting, Rickards accused both the Fed and Treasury of being more dangerous to the United States’ national security than Al-Qaeda or any rival nation.

And Senator Paul has cited Rickards’ work in numerous speeches and in his official budget proposal for the year where he warned that our central bank was leading us towards a “Roman Empire-like collapse.”

Which is a conclusion that Rickards and many of his colleagues agree with.

A startling report containing the consensus view of all 16 branches of the U.S. Intelligence Committee has revealed that these agencies have begun to estimate the impact of “The fall of the dollar as the global reserve currency.”

And our reign as the leading superpower being annihilated in a way “equivalent to the end of the British Empire in the post-World War II period.”

The question we should all be asking ourselves now is “what if they’re right?”

Israel-Hamas truce: It’s the big picture, stupid

By J.E. Dyer, LIBERTY YIELDING,  on August 29, 2014 at 1:08 am

The answer to why Israel has been prepared, since mid-July, to conclude a new truce with Hamas is staring us in the face – if we zoom out from Gaza and look at the whole region.

Make no mistake, as President Obama likes to say.  It’s Hamas that delayed accepting a truce, on the terms proposed by Egypt.  Israel has accepted essentially that same truce for more than a month.  It was Hamas that wouldn’t agree to stop fighting.

I’ve written before about the reason Hamas believes it is so important today to be seen taking the fight to Israel: because other groups – most especially ISIS – are emerging to rival Hamas as quasi-state entities with a Sunni revolutionary-Islamist ideology.  There is a very real possibility now of Hamas, qua Hamas, losing its privileged geographic position, and its pride of place in Arab and Islamic geopolitics as Israel’s torturer-in-chief.

It’s not just Western media attention that’s being siphoned off by ISIS: it’s the well-funded strategic focus of big players like Saudi Arabia and Turkey, and the interest of an up-and-coming generation of jihadi fighters.  Nearly six years on from Operation Cast Lead, there are other places to be, if you’re a hip jihadi hoping to immanentize the eschaton.  There’s another vision for subjugating Israel and restoring a caliphate.

That vision – as predicted more than five years ago – has moved on from its Oslo-era boresight on “Israel and the Palestinian Arabs.”  As long as there is a Palestinian Authority, and Hamas and Fatah exist as viable entities, other organizations and leaders will continue to deal with them (e.g., the Saudis, the Qataris, Iran, the OIC, the Arab League, Yusuf Qaradawi of the Muslim Brotherhood).  Hamas and Fatah won’t be dismissed or ignored – yet.  But there is an increasingly perfunctory character to the interaction we see with them by those other entities.

With the destabilization ensuing on the withdrawal of U.S. power from the Middle East, a whole new era of possibilities has opened up.  “Hamas in Gaza” is no longer the only way, or the best way, to put a hurt on Israel and advance the prospects for a caliphate.

A visit to the map

Imagine you’re a motivated enemy of Israel with a passion for Sunni jihad.  Now let’s go to the map.  Five years ago, in August 2009, you had little or no potential maneuvering space around Israel.  Assad ruled Syria.  Jordan was a relatively stable, Western-friendly kingdom observing formal accords with Israel.  Egypt, ruled by Hosni Mubarak, had honored a peace treaty with Israel for 30 years.  The territory governed by these rulers was neither penetrable nor readily exploitable as a path toward Israel.

It used to be such a stable place.  Map 1 (Google map)

Lebanon represented something of a territorial vulnerability for Israel; Gaza, an even greater vulnerability, was blockaded – and the potential vulnerability presented by both plots of territory was being exploited by Shia Iran.  But the very stability of all the other players limited a jihadi’s vision for what kinds of “maneuver” were possible.  There could be no territorial roaming or conquest, certainly.  What the enterprising jihadi had to do was attempt to insert in place somewhere – perhaps with already-organized groups like Hamas, perhaps among Arabs in refugee camps in Jordan – and foment insurrection against the local order.

Even in the next ring outward, rule was secure and boundaries were (mostly) unquestioned: Iraq was politically fractious but still unified; Turkey, while Islamizing, was still careful to observe the niceties of her NATO orientation; the momentum in Southeastern Europe was toward the EU political model; Libya, that perennially strange and ungovernable case, was still unified under Qadhafi; Saudi Arabia dominated the Arabian Peninsula without having to try very hard, and no one outside western Yemen knew what a Houthi was.

Fast-forward to 2014, after the Arab Spring and the rise of Sunni state-Islamism and ISIS, and this whole picture has changed.  Suddenly, all of Syria and most of Iraq represent potential maneuvering space.  Hezbollah’s concern in Lebanon is as much to hang on to what it’s got as anything else.  Egypt has been through the wringer; large swaths of the Sinai Peninsula are a poorly patrolled No Man’s Land, and the kingdoms of Jordan and Saudi Arabia are running scared.

The vulnerabilities ripple outward too.  Libya is utterly up for grabs.  The Mediterranean region hasn’t seen such lawlessness on its southern edge for more than a century; there is real reason to be concerned about the waves of refugees overwhelming Southern Europe and the literal armed danger developing for the seaways and commercial trade.  If the wrong people get hold of Libya, the vaunted post-Arab Spring success of little Tunisia next door will collapse like a house of cards.

Outer ring, bad as the inner ring - or worse. (Google map; author annotation.)

Once-promising trends in Sub-Saharan Africa are being menaced by an onslaught of dreadful predators: armed Islamism in Nigeria and Somalia, the Ebola outbreak along the West African coast.

Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen threaten to bring down yet another government backed by, and cooperating with, the United States.  If they succeed, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates will find themselves flanked: Iran on one side, Iran’s client on the other.  And Iran will have the finest frontage there is on the Gulf of Aden and the Bab El-Mandeb Strait: the gateway to the Red Sea.

Further east, Afghanistan is scheduled to fall to the Taliban by early 2015.  From western Iran to Ukraine lies a belt of unease and instability, with some parties actively fighting (Kurds, ISIS, Russia, Ukraine) and others waiting for the next shoe to drop (Georgia).

If you had the geostrategic vision of an Islamist Alexander or Napoleon, as ISIS’s leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi does, you too would see possibilities in all this.  You would see a way of extending a new caliphate all the way into Spain – by rapid maneuver and force of arms.

If you don’t see the possibilities, it’s because your mental idea of the Middle East and North Africa is outdated and no longer valid.  Al-Baghdadi has a very grand-scale vision, but he’s not crazy.  And the reason the calculations of all the Middle East’s political leaders are changing is that anyone with an intelligence service and a map sees what Al-Baghdadi does: that formerly unbreachable boundaries are giving way, and no one knows what, if anything, will stop the gathering storm.

The players

Some of the players started this unfolding game with the goal of preserving order, and changing the status quo only in an orderly fashion.  Israel, Egypt (under Al-Sisi), Saudi Arabia, and Jordan fall in this category, along with the current rulers of Bahrain, the UAE, Yemen, and Oman.

Some, like Russia, have had status quo changes they wanted to pursue, and were willing to breach the peace to do it even before the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS.  But they hope to proceed carefully and do it on their own terms.  Qatar under her new emir is turning into this type of player.  The internal strife in Turkey is deciding right now whether Turkey will be such a player, or a more disruptive and revolutionary player, like Iran.

Iran is a separate category, and in fact is sui generis, having had an active model of disruptive state-Islamism for more than three decades already.  Iran has been acting much longer than ISIS has, with degrees of motivation that have waxed and waned, on a vision for eschatological consummation involving the conquest of Jerusalem, and the proclamation of a caliphate.  Iran’s operational model has been to sponsor proxies in place: her client Assad in Syria, the terror groups Hezbollah and Hamas.

And while it’s important to note that Iran’s is a Shia vision of apocalypse, as opposed to the Sunni concept, the most important factor of all is that everyone with an Islamist ideology now sees new possibilities for bringing it about.  The proximate catalyst for the new energy among Islamists is not sectarian hatred.  It’s the sudden expanse of maneuvering room unrolling before their eyes like a red carpet.

The models of jihad

The ISIS threat has a unique urgency because it is maneuver-based, territorial, and moving rapidly.  The Iranian threat has always been state-based, and operates more on the former-Soviet model of proxy sponsorship, influence, and foreign clients.  There is a third model – the “grand jihad” model – codified by the Muslim Brotherhood, which until the Arab Spring acted mainly on a global and abstract vision for civilizational jihad.  (That vision was certainly not a pacific one; the grand jihad model is fully compatible with, and in fact has inspired and funded, Al Qaeda’s career of terrorism, which until the Arab Spring was designed mainly to sap the will of the non-Muslim world.)

The Muslim Brotherhood model secured big victories in Turkey over the last decade.  It suffered a setback in Egypt when Mohammed Morsi was ousted in 2013, but it is by no means defeated.  It’s alive and well in Europe and the United States.

These models are putting up active internecine competitors right now, but that does not mean that the Islamists will gratify the rest of us by all fighting each other to the death.  They will make alliances that come together and fall apart.  They will fight side by side as well as fighting with each other.  Each will appropriate the other’s methods where necessary.  Ultimately, what each envisions is the same thing: planting the flag of his particular vision at the seat of the caliphate.

A shorthand way of thinking about the three models is that ISIS envisions a maneuver-conquest method for establishing the caliphate; the Iranian vision – and quite possibly the neo-Ottoman Turkish vision – is to gain accretion over the map with a series of political coups abroad; and the Muslim Brotherhood vision is an “induction” method: inducing the walls of civilizational resistance to fall like dominos across the globe.

A key waypoint in the effort is “liberating” Jerusalem.  (Which is why I have for some time dubbed this developing dynamic the “race to Jerusalem.”)  There is no Islamist who has notmade an overt priority of it.*  It is a serious and predictable planning factor for all of them.  The three models have different approaches to gaining control of Jerusalem, but they all assign it the same importance – even though the seat of the caliphate is to be elsewhere.

Gaza: Once more to the map

With all these factors in mind, let’s visit the map one more time.  Hamas occupies prime territory in the post-Arab Spring battle space of the Islamist eschaton.  Something that cannot be overstressed is that creating a vacuum in Gaza would unleash a maelstrom today.  If Hamas is not occupying Gaza for Islamism, the rush to try to occupy it would make things far worse, for Israel, Egypt, and Jordan (even for Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, in fact), than the current situation with Hamas.

Moreover, Israel can’t occupy Gaza without setting off the same uncontrollable chain of explosions.

It's a jungle out there.  Map 3 (Google map; author annotation)

Even if the three nations most concerned – Israel, Egypt, and Jordan – came together somehow to crush Hamas militarily and try to build a new political regime there, the repercussions from that deliberate strategy would be uncontrollable.  There is no backstop against which to rest, if such dynamics get started.  There’s no secure border or stable point of refuge anywhere to count on.  Egypt would invite an invasion of jihadi guerrillas in the Sinai with such a policy; Jordan would court the same thing around the Gulf of Aqaba.  Saudi territory would be vulnerable in that area as well.

But under today’s conditions, it’s actually worse than that: Egypt and Jordan (and, again, Saudi Arabia, if to a lesser extent) could face jihadi infiltrations on their other borders – with Libya, Sudan, Syria, Iraq – if jihadi groups got especially motivated to race for a suddenly-de-Hamas-ified Gaza.  Israel, and by extension Lebanon, would face the same thing on her northern border.

This threat isn’t theoretical.  The jihadis are already there.  Egypt is increasingly alarmed about the ones in Libya, as Jordan is about the ones in Iraq and Syria.  Israelis heard yesterday that cross-border fire had been exchanged in the Golan, as Islamist fighters on the Syrian side – including fighters from the Al-Nusra Front – seized control of a crossing point.  Today the UN has confirmed that several dozen peacekeepers were captured by the rebel fighters.  This won’t end well; the danger is clear and present.

But the pressures on the nations around Gaza would come from other nations as well as from stateless guerrillas.  Iran would inevitably be involved in a feeding frenzy for Gaza, through one proxy or another, and the Erdogan regime in Turkey would consider itself bound to be.  Maritime movement could quickly become a factor, creating the potential for very dangerous standoffs as well as a new menace to the tradeways in the area.

Harbingers of the game change

And now, with all of this laid out before us, look at the most recent, unprecedented development in Libya over the last week: strike-fighters from the UAE conducting air strikes on targets in Libya, with Egypt’s help – but without the blessing of the UN or a consortium of global powers.

There’s certainly a dog-in-the-manger aspect to the complaints from America and our European allies about these strikes.  But the complaints are a symptom of a legitimate security concern, which is that there is no overarching order now, if the UAE and Egypt don’t observe its forms.**

If those two nations can take matters into their own hands, others can too.  It’s not just Russia that can invade a neighbor with impunity, and not just the members of NATO that can conduct expeditionary interventions on their own say-so.  Moreover, the air strikes on Libya are a model for far-flung, geography-oriented military activism by Muslim governments.  The importance of this as a “bust out” from the post-World War I paradigm of the last century cannot be overstated.

There is literally nothing to stop Turkey, for example, from maneuvering with armed force to back up an aspirant to a new crown in Gaza.  Turkey wouldn’t attack Israel outright, of course.  But Erdogan could create situations in which Israel’s only options are to either back down or fire on Turkish maritime or air forces.

In these ungoverned circumstances, is Iran less likely, or more, to make good on the kind of threats she has been lobbing at Israel since Sunday?  On the pretext of having shot down an Israeli-made drone in Iranian air space, the Iranians just this week have issued a threat ofunusual directness and specificity.  (I assess that what Iran purports to have shot down wasnot a drone being operated by Israel; I just don’t have time to write a whole post on everything, but will be happy to answer questions on that.)

They waded in further on Thursday with an announcement that they have begun delivering arms to Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank, with a view to the “annihilation of the Zionist regime.”

The threats could be about guerrilla attacks on Israel from the north or east.  They could be about Iran establishing her bona fides as a revolutionary anti-Zionist force, as the jihadi cachet of ISIS catches fire.  They could even be about Iran harassing and distracting Israel in preparation for conducting a nuclear warhead test, although I consider that unlikely.  In any case, it’s a big punctuation mark on a security situation whose instability is spiraling far beyond any regional nation’s capacity to control.

I urge readers to understand that this is actually what matters about Israel’s situation vis-à-vis Hamas.  There are very good reasons why the Netanyahu government has judged it best to defang Hamas as much as possible for now, but work with Egypt to continue living with Hamas in Gaza.  It will not be up to Israel whether this status quo can last.  But it is up to Netanyahu today whether Israel is the one to breach it, and set a match to the tinder.
