After 9/11 Americans were wondering ‘why do they hate us?’ What we know about ourselves is that we are generous, kind and helpful people to those less fortunate in the world. The mainstream puppet media has continued to feed us that line, relentlessly, keep us distracted from what our ‘representatives’ are doing or not doing, and in general disconnecting our minds from reality.
Our diplomacy has taken the classic ‘mafia’ form: we make ‘offers others can’t refuse‘ and behind that ‘diplomacy‘ we have generated the most hideous weapons technology that the worst nightmares of sci-fi’s mad scientists couldn’t have even dreamed. Weapons to use against others, yes, but also against OUR OWN PEOPLE.
Thanks to our ‘representatives,’ they now have all the laws in place they need to use them against ANYONE THEY WANT, INCLUDING US.
The GLOBAL BANKERS, who are destroying our own economy, are RESPONSIBLE for this mess: “Signaling further pressure on Tehran, the administration also issued a warning on Thursday to U.S. financial institutions about the dangers of doing business with Iranian banks because of inadequate checks on money laundering and the growing risks to the international financial system posed by Iran’s financial sector. “The government of Iran disguises its involvement in proliferation and terrorism activities through an array of deceptive practices,” the Treasury Department said.”
The idea that our ‘honest’ banking system is threatened by the ‘deceptive practices’ of a third world country is completely preposterous. The deceptive practices of the Federal Reserve and its crony global bankers has just received bailouts in multiples of America’s entire GDP, from which they ‘multiply by 40’ and spend, because of the ‘fractional banking system.’ This means that for every dollar of bailout the taxpayers give them, they are, BY LAW, able to turn it into $40 of interest bearing LOANS back to Americans, American businesses, a criminal practice that future taxpayers are obligated to pay for, despite the fact that it GUTS the value of our money and destroys our own economy.
“Over the past eight days, the U.S. government has undertaken a number of steps to put Tehran on notice that the international community will not allow the Iranian government to misuse the international financial system or global transportation network to further its aspirations to obtain nuclear weapons capability, improve its missile systems, or support international terrorism,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in a statement.”
This is smoke and mirrors designed to implement the Global Strike Plan. “Global strike has become one of the core missions for the Omaha-based Strategic Command, or Stratcom. Once, Stratcom oversaw only the nation’s nuclear forces; now it has responsibility for overseeing a global strike plan with both conventional and nuclear options. President Bush spelled out the definition of “full-spectrum” global strike in a January 2003 classified directive, describing it as “a capability to deliver rapid, extended range, precision kinetic (nuclear and conventional) and non-kinetic (elements of space and information operations) effects in support of theater and national objectives.”
“Among the reasons that the Bush administration has proclaimed are that Iran is supporting terrorism by supplying arms, training and encouragement both to anti-American insurgents in Iraq and to anti-Israeli Hizbullah militants in Lebanon and that it is moving toward the acquisition of nuclear weapons. Doubts have been expressed on both of these contentions. Iran played a positive role in against the Taliban (and against the drug trade) in Afghanistan and evidence on Iraq is, at best, sketchy. On the nuclear issue, a National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) reported in November 2007 the consensus of all the American intelligence agencies “with high confidence” that Iran is not actively seeking to develop nuclear weapons.”
Even if it means going to war with Russia, Iran’s ally? The ‘mafia diplomacy‘ is interpreted as a threat to Russia. “He (Putin) insisted that Russia would make no concessions to the West at the expense of its own security, saying, “Why should we be flexible if it’s a question of a threat to our security?”
The Administration’s reasons for war are lies and distortions: “The Iranian move clearly had great propaganda value.”
Furthermore, there is no doubt that China has developed strong ties with Middle East Nations: Syria, Iran and others- all ties that put China’s interests at threat if the US and the global bankers decide to PRE-EMPTIVELY strike Iran.
The death toll on innocent people by the Global Strike Plan? “the number of deaths could exceed a million, and the number of people with increased cancer risks could exceed 10 million. For example, the new nuclear earth penetrator that the United States plans to research would use a 1.2-megaton weapon. According to a simulation using software developed for the Pentagon, if one of these weapons were used against the underground nuclear facility in Esfahan, Iran, 3 million people would be killed by radiation within 2 weeks of the explosion, and 35 million people in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India would be exposed to increased levels of cancer-causing radiation.”
Most Americans believe that something is dreadfully wrong, and 81% think we’re on the WRONG TRACK.
If we were surprised at how HATED we are at 9/11- there will be NO COMPARISON to the hatred we will have EARNED if we are the ones to start a GLOBAL NUCLEAR CONFLAGRATION.
We have LOST our country to the international bankers. They have threatened to destroy countries and economies before to get their own way, and America is NO DIFFERENT. More on this in another post…
However, if we don’t STOP these people, if we don’t TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK, if we don’t RETURN TO OUR CONSITUTION and IMMEDIATELY, we, as a people, will be responsible for GLOBAL NUCLEAR WAR.
God won’t ‘bail us out’ of this one. He didn’t bail the Russian people from the genocide against them that Stalin committed. He didn’t bail out the Jews from Hitler’s genocide. He didn’t bail out Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
We will drink this cup TO THE DREGS before it is over.
So the Pope is coming to America, and McCain hopes to turn this into a big ‘turnaround’ for his candidacy with Catholics. Catholics have been leaving the GOP in droves, and no wonder.
The pathetic thing is that there isn’t anywhere else to go, so they’ve been settling for the Democratic party.
Whether you like him or not, at least Pope Benedict XVI will be holding McCain’s feet to the fire- if you want Catholic support, you must have fidelity to some conservative principles, a thing that NO candidate has except Ron Paul. This Holy Father has the guts to face Islam, you’ll be nothing, McCain!
Tell us, McCain, about your commitment to the Just War Doctrine.
Its a very simple set of 7 CRITICAL points.
Tell us about your commitment to LIFE. That’s very simple too, expecially since the Democrats are for even infanticide and forced abortions by government, as in China. Population control is their mantra, though there isn’t any justifiable proof that the planet, run justly, couldn’t support every human being alive today.
Tell us about why you think 100 years of war is acceptable in ANY way. Tell us why we should forego the Bill of Rights and the Constitution because we’re told to be afraid of third world guerillas!
Most importantly, tell us why we should EVER vote for ANYONE that believes that pre-emptive first strike nuclear war is justifiable and ‘on the table.’
Not going to happen, unless there is a BIG conversion on your part, but your bosses won’t buy it. Neither would we, to be honest.
The truth is that no Catholic and, indeed, no Christian, can justifiably vote for the roster of candidates that are running now, excepting Ron Paul.
The idea that party loyalty is more important than our souls is preposterous. The idea that party loyalty is more important than our Constitutional rights is ridiculous.
Time to wake up and smell the coffee, GOP. Your party is just about finished, and good riddance to bad rubbish.
Jesus said, in the book of Matthew 24:24 “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
How is it possible for the elect to be deceived by false christs and false prophets? There is only one way- that, like the devil- they know the bible, and can bend it to fit their own meanings, being so similar to what Christ and his Apostles taught, that honest, God-fearing people (and pastors!) can actually be totally deceived!
A blatant violation of scripture would be enough, to properly trained Christians, to show up the deceiver immediately. However, with the pathetic nonsense that Christians have been doing with Christianity for the past, oh, 500 years or so, Christians are NOT properly trained, and have been so blown around by the wind of ‘special secret insights and understandings’ of scripture, that even the pastors buy into the LIE.
Jesus also said, in Matthew 12:25 “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” And in Luke 12:52 “For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.”
So, there we have a BIG part of the problem. The house of God is divided, divided in many ways, all in opposition the only personal and direct prayer of Jesus in John 17, that they may all be ONE as WE ARE ONE.
How can we tell the pastors have been deceived? They are indeed cooperating with the Anti-christ in a very real way, AND misusing scripture to do so. They have fallen in love with their own words, their own thoughts, and have rejected… well…
I quote: “Phony Christian leaders are brainwashing their congregations to accept the premise that the totalitarian police state is “of the Lord” and that they should get on their knees and lick jackboots while the round-ups take place as citizens are processed into quarantine zones and detention camps by the National Guard and U.S. troops returning from Iraq.”
In order to justify this horrendous travesty, the Pastors (and the fascists) quote this scripture: Romans 13: and tell us to:
Submit to Government
1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.”
Let this be clear: EVERY SOUL SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE GOVERNING AUTHORITIES.
In the case of America, the governing authorities are the CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS.
Under martial law, which is ILLEGAL according to these founding documents, EVERY SOUL including the President, the Representatives, the Judiciary, the Military, the Police and all officials from the least to the greatest, are BOUND BY SCRIPTURE, OATH OF OFFICE, AND LAW to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.
The role of the pastors is to remind each of those souls that they are in VIOLATION of the very texts they seek to use to garner complicity and quell ‘dissent.’ The Pastors should be quoting the second verse AGAINST them: Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
Furthermore, under illegal martial law, the President is no longer a ‘ruler’ but a TYRANT. Therefore, verse 3 says: rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.
What, exactly, is illegal martial law, and the illegal policing of Americans, than a terror to good works?
And here, in verse 4: if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain
In Christian Tradition, we have the Just War Doctrine which DEFINES, according to Christian morality, the very restricted ways in which war can be moral and Christian. This is no small matter, given that under EVERY SINGLE TENET of the Just War Doctrine, the wars we have been conducting are PURE EVIL.
Christian pastors are obligated, before the God they claim to represent, to declare and make PLAIN that our ‘government’ which has contravened our law, has ALSO contravened international and Christian law in its purpose for and conduct of war.
Specifically, our ‘government’ has declared as POLICY a pre-emptive, first strike NUCLEAR war to be on the table. The Catholic Bishops have come out and publicly declared that ‘NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE PURE EVIL.’
Just like any other Christian Doctrine that they MUST teach their flock, such as the evil and immorality of abortion, the pastors are obligated to teach their flock the evils of pre-emptive, first strike war; the evils of nuclear weapons; the unspeakable evil of actually being willing to attack a poorly armed developing country, who is no credible threat to us, with NUCLEAR weapons.
Due to the arrogance of divisive Christian pastors, who have chopped up the Body of Christ with their preposterous and outrageous interpretations of scriptures that they barely read, the pastors have BECOME DECEIVED BY THE ANTI-CHRIST AND HAVE BECOME HIS HANDMAIDS.
It is time, NOW, for Christians everywhere to give up the idea that Jesus Christ is the LIAR– He promised to be with His Church TO THE END OF THE AGE. However, in pride and arrogance, there are all kinds of Christian Denominations that feel that as soon as He ascended to Heaven and the last Apostle died, that the sins of the people IN the Church which the Apostles started, drove the Spirit OUT like the money-changers, until the day that God SAW THE LIGHT when you were finally born, so that these NEW DENOMINATIONS proclaimed themselves specially ‘chosen’ by God to be the remnant.
No, indeed, FEMA & Patriot Act Pastors, YOU have been deceived all along, you have done it to yourselves, and NOW you are TOOLS to be used by the Anti-christ to help bring in his reign of terror, on the backs of your ‘sheep,’ at the expense of the Constitution and of YOUR COUNTRY, all without a peep of dissent from a single one of you!
But, YOU WON’T. You won’t give up your positions, you won’t humble yourselves and seek to re-unify the Body of Christ, you won’t change your preaching from the Prosperity Gospel to the CROSS; to the one of Christians ‘making up for what is lacking in the suffering of Christ.’
You will PREFER to be deceived because it is …. so close… SO CLOSE… to what you PREFER to think is scriptural interpretation, the ones you’ve ignored, torn out of context, mistranslated and misused all along to get your tithes, your honor, your respect, your wealth… can 500 years of ‘theologians’ be wrong?
Yes, especially if you prefer to believe that the previous 1500 years of theologians were wrong first. What, exactly, has made YOU better? What, exactly has made YOU more useful to the Kingdom of God? Who do you think you are???
You know from Revelation 13: So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue[c] for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe,[d] tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
By setting aside the God ORDAINED Constitution and Bill of Rights, illegally and without precedent, the government has enshrined laws of MEN in the place of the laws of God- the beast has empowered the devil. There is NO OBLIGATION for any Christian, or anyone who receives the ‘blessing for all’ of the Constitution, to obey the laws of men seeking their own evil self-interests.
The ONLY answer a genuine pastor and man of God can make is the same one the Apostles made before him: “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29.
However, you yourselves are unable to see through the deception! You yourselves have NO Discernment of Spirits that is given by God to His true shepherds. If that doesn’t frighten you, ‘shepherd’, it should. You, whether for blessings or condemnation, must answer to the Lord for the souls in your care and keeping. You are permitting them all to be sacrificed to the anti-christ as a blood offering to evil.
Recall that the Beloved also said, “Not everyone who says to me Lord! Lord! will get into heaven.” The sifting of sheep and goats has begun IN EARNEST, in our day, and in our present realities. Who among you hasn’t preached that these are the ‘end times’ spoken of in Scripture? Who among you hasn’t ‘warned your flock of the anti-christ?’ Yet, you yourselves have fallen for him. There will be no rapture to bail you out of your responsibilities before God. The anti-christ is misleading the entire inhabited world, and you are helping him out. Like everybody else, you will ‘reap what you sow.’
It is TIME to prepare your flock for the events of verse 10- since NO ONE has stood up to the EVIL so far, but has been deceived in so many ways, so that even proper governance is removed, then it is time for the captivity, patience and faith of the saints.
Our Bishops, Pastors, Priests and Deacons have had LOADS of perks by being ‘front and center’ of the Christian Communities all over the world. However, while they were gorging on the benefits of ‘tickling men’s ears’ they have allowed the most basic of Christians truths to be violated and sold like a prostitute, to any interest willing to grease their palms. Yes, I’m talking to YOU- Christian Shepherds of ANY stripe, EVERY denomination!
It is time to, finally, put your soul, and the souls of your flock, where your open palm is and TAKE THE URGENT ACTIONS NEEDED for this time and place in Christian history.
Our American government has discarded, like a spent menstrual rag, the utterly Christian Doctrine of JUST WAR, in favor of the fascist UNPROVOKED, FIRST STRIKE, NUCLEAR WAR. Both parties, who have used and abused Christians and Christianity for their own gain, have voted in permission for the current Administration to escalate the current illegal war into an utterly EVIL FIRST STRIKE NUCLEAR CONFLAGRATION against countries who have NOT invaded or committed ANY crime against our country!
For those of our shepherds who PLAINLY don’t know, OR CARE ABOUT, the tenets of the Just War Doctrine, I outline them here for you:
1. A just war can only be waged as a last resort.
All non-violent options must be exhausted before the use of force can be justified.
2. Even just causes cannot be served by actions taken by individuals or groups who do not constitute an authority sanctioned by whatever the society and outsiders to the society deem legitimate.
3. A just war can only be fought to redress a wrong suffered. For example, self-defense against an armed attack is always considered to be a just cause (although the justice of the cause is not sufficient–see point #4).
Further, a just war can only be fought with “right” intentions: the only permissible objective of a just war is to redress the injury.
4. A war can only be just if it is fought with a reasonable chance of success.
Deaths and injury incurred in a hopeless cause are not morally justifiable.
5. The ultimate goal of a just war is to re-establish peace.
More specifically, the peace established after the war must be preferable to the peace that would have prevailed if the war had not been fought.
6. The violence used in the war must be proportional to the injury suffered.
States are prohibited from using force not necessary to attain the limited objective of addressing the injury suffered.
7. The weapons used in war must discriminate between combatants and non-combatants.
Civilians are never permissible targets of war, and every effort must be taken to avoid killing civilians.
The deaths of civilians are justified only if they are unavoidable victims of a deliberate attack on a military target
First, it is incumbent upon, and the responsibility of EVERY TRUE Christian to ENSURE THEIR SHEPHERDS ARE EDUCATED as to Just War Christian Doctrine. This should NEVER have been the obligation of the flock- this is the RESPONSIBILITY of the Shepherds to teach and act upon this. However, since they, through gluttony and pride have succumbed rather to the deceits and temptations of evil, they MUST have this re-taught to THEM instead.
Second, the Shepherds of the flock of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings MUST take action against every so-called Christian in political office that has supported or voted for an EVIL WAR. Catholic Bishops, at least, have spoken out against this: “Nuclear weapons are instruments of PURE EVIL. A nuclear explosion, either by design or accident, would kill massive numbers of people, create international chaos, and cripple the world economy. Nuclear weapons are DEVOID of the SLIGHTEST SHRED of moral legitimacy. Prominent jurists consider their use illegal in any possible circumstance. The nuclear weapons states are deliberately undermining the rule of law in maintaining them.”
What part of the word ‘EVIL’ don’t you understand?????
The “Shepherds” of Christ’s Church are NOW being called out on the carpet to LIVE the TRUTH you claim to profess!
Every politician, media pundit, corporation and influencer who does ANYTHING to promote, support or pay for this evil war MUST BE PUBLICLY EXCOMMUNICATED. Every parishioner who supports or votes for this evil must face excommunication.
YOUR JOB is to help your people to “GET OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, SO YOU DO NOT SHARE IN HER SINS!” You, of course, have no need of the reference from me- if so, READ YOUR BIBLE.
But I will quote this for you: Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
HOW YOU HAVE BENEFITTED from allowing this DECEPTION to go on! You’ve gotten famous and wealthy, and all it cost you is the souls you have the AUDACITY to claim you have been leading!
The TRUTH has been made manifest. People have seen ONE CANDIDATE who was provided by PROVIDENCE, that has been willing to SPEAK THE EVIL of the WAR POLICY of our government. In case you didn’t notice, his name is Ron Paul. But, WHO AMONG YOU EVEN NOTICED???
Massive excommunication is the ONLY means remaining to draw attention to the EVIL being committed in the NAME of CHRIST himself. It is the ONLY remaining method by which the line in the sand can be drawn.
ACT NOW while there is still time- before the next illegal invasion, BEFORE THE FIRST NUKE IS USED.
God has made it plain in His scriptures. He is not one to be mocked!
Your slovenly laziness in selling out Christendom, and not teaching and preaching against the evil that is overtaking the world, will bring upon us a judgment unimaginable in its fury! One prophet recently said, “the living will envy the dead.”
And we’ll have YOU to thank for that!
