Turkey’s leaders plan Muslim Europe The First Post (July 9, 2007) - If you thought Turkey was no threat to the West, think again. A new generation of politicians is aiming to Islamise the state by stealth. The AKP - Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi, or Justice and Development Party - has a stranglehold on Turkey for the foreseeable future. Since coming to power, the AKP has done nothing revolutionary, but it does have a revolutionary agenda. The AKP was founded to replace a previous Islamic party banned for extremism. It benefited hugely from the corruption scandals that dragged down the previous government, taking two-thirds of parliament in the 2002 general election (on a third of the vote). On Friday, its ex-foreign secretary Abdullah Gul narrowly failed to win a victory in the first round of presidential elections. The result was close enough to prompt public demonstrations by secularists ahead of the second round voting on May 2, and a statement from the military - long the guardians of Turkey's secular traditions - warning against a pro-Islam political agenda. For all their suavity, its leaders seek to transform the country into a Sunni Muslim republic. This collides with institutions and laws strictly limiting Islam's role in public life, and with a long-standing security alliance with Israel. more...

Strong quake hits Southern Mexico (July 6, 2007) - A strong earthquake shook southernmost Mexico late Thursday, knocking out power to large parts of Chiapas state and causing panic among residents, according to seismologists. People rushed from their homes in fear in several areas of southern Mexico, but no injuries were reported and Chiapas public security secretary Daniel Rogue told AFP that there was only "light damage to some buildings" in the state. In Tuxtla Gutierrez, the state capital, power went off, ceilings fell and windows broke in the commercial district, where dozens of people fled terrified into the street in search of safety. Electricity services also shut down in Oaxaca, according to reports. Seismologists at the National Autonomous University of Mexico said it was a 6.2 quake and the US Geological Survey measured the quake at 6.1 in magnitude, indicating a strong earthquake apt to cause damage and injuries. The magnitude reading was based on the Moment Magnitude scale, now used by US seismologists, which measures the area of the fault that ruptured and the total energy released. The quake hit at 8:09 pm Thursday (0109 GMT Friday), at a depth of 125 kilometers (78 miles) 40 kilometers (25 miles) west and southwest of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, Mexico and 390 kilometers (240 miles) northwest of Guatemala City. Jesus Duran, a spokesman for the state oil company Pemex, told Reforma newspaper there was no damage reported at the company's refinery in Salina Cruz. "All of the plants are normal .... there are no problems," he said. Authorities in three states ordered evacuations of buildings and businesses. On April 13, a quake of 6.2 magnitude hit Mexico without causing major damage. The epicenter of the earthquake was located in the southern state of Guerrero near the Pacific coast.

Solana steps up effort to fill anti-terrorism post European Voice (July 5, 2007) - Javier Solana, the EU’s foreign policy chief, is expected to fill the post of EU counter-terrorism co-ordinator soon but with a strengthened role and mandate. Efforts to fill the post, which was vacated by Gijs de Vries, a Dutch politician, in March, have intensified after the terrorist incidents in the UK this week. Member states support boosting the position, with Wolfgang Schaüble, Germany’s interior minister, saying that the current job description and mandate were “not sufficient”. “The construction of the post is not sufficient…the matter now is to look for a new construction. Until now it has been a position of the Council [of Ministers] but that is not effective enough,” he said, in an interview with European Voice. The role could involve stronger powers in scrutinising police co-operation across the EU and monitoring how relevant EU legislation is functioning, an EU official said. The post could also involve an enhanced role in co-operating with third countries on counter-terrorism. There are suggestions that the post could involve co-ordination of anti-terror activities across the EU institutions. But the official said that this was “out of the question”, as it would involve the new anti-terror co-ordinator stealing powers from the European Commission. Franco Frattini, the European commissioner for justice, freedom and security, said that it was up to the Council to decide if the post should be strengthened, but added: “The Council is leading the co-ordination of the intergovernmental area while I am leading the communitarian [European Community] area of the issue.” The post is expected to be filled by appointing a candidate from a large member state, said one diplomat. The position has remained vacant since de Vries stepped down because Solana and his office have not had time to find a replacement. Instead, they have focused their attention on the crises in the Middle East and with Iran, as well as on reform of the EU’s institutions. But the recent terrorist incidents in the UK have highlighted the need to step up co-ordination against terrorism at EU level and are expected to boost efforts to fill the post. Frattini on Tuesday (3 July) announced that he would be introducing legislation in the autumn to criminalise the posting of information about bomb-making on the internet and that he intended to set up a database to track the storage and use of explosives across the EU. He reiterated his intention to introduce a European system for collecting information on airline passengers entering the EU. Frattini said that he wanted each member state to set up a national unit to collect and store such information, which includes credit card details, passport number and who a passenger is flying with. Frattini said that he was also sending out a questionnaire to all member states asking how they deal with religious education and prevent radicalisation. He said that this was intended to “protect the large majority of Muslims living here peacefully”.

Revelation 6:1,2
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Daniel 8:25
And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
As I've mentioned before, Daniel 8:25 refers to a historical figure, Antiochus IV Epiphanes. He was a type of antichrist, even placing an idol in the Holy of Holies, thus performing the abomination of desolation and causing the Macabbean revolt. The same spirit is behind the end-time man of sin. Terrorism is a cause for peace and safety that is brought about by going forth conquering. It is also a means to place controls on society that will eventually lead to the mark of the beast. Another trademark is entering in by flatteries, and that's what politics is all about. The master politician knows how to wear the right masks at the right times to elevate the pride of those you wish to get something from, playing to their egos in return for cooperation. The question is who will fill the anti-terrorism post? Whoever it is, it appears that Solana is appointing them. Keep watching!

The Second Beast Rises FulfilledProphecy (July 5, 2007) - A recent press release from the United Nations' secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, makes a startling statement. It says that the teachings of a 13th century, Persian poet--Maulana Rumi--capture the goals of the UN's "Alliance of Civilizations." As followers of FP know, the AoC is an initiative launched under the UN's previous secretary-general, Kofi Annan, to combat religious extremism and end the tensions that divide the Western and Muslim worlds. The UN realized it can never achieve its goal of creating a peaceful world unless it first achieves religious tolerance. It plans to focus its efforts on education, media, migration and youth. The AoC is being implemented under the framework of the "Euro-Mediterranean Partnership" and the "European Neighbourhood Policy" (both which seek to bring peace and stability to the Middle East) with a goal of extending the AoC globally. An AoC "High Representative," Jorge Sampaio (former president of Portugal), has been appointed to lead these efforts, and Javier Solana, the EU's High Representative, has endorsed the AoC. The UN's goal is for the AoC to become operational by the end of 2009--just in time for the middle of Daniel's 70th week in 2010 (if it, indeed, started Jan, 1, 2007). The emergence of the AoC is significant because it marked the beginning of a formal, spiritual agenda by the UN. And what are the UN's spiritual beliefs? According to the secretary-general, Ki-moon, they can be found in the writings of Maulana Rumi, which you can read here. Ki-moon goes so far as to call himself a "student" of Rumi. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the prime minister of Turkey--co-sponsor of the AoC with Spain--told the UN General Assembly that spreading Rumi's message throughout the world "will greatly strengthen our efforts within the framework of the Alliance of Civilizations." Read his speech here. Turkey is currently sponoring an exhibit featuring Rumi's work at the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Rumi taught that, originally, we were all part of God and, through spiritual enlightenment, we'll eventually make our way back to God. Like other Eastern and New Age teachings, Rumi taught that only when individuals attain inner peace--and don't discriminate against other beliefs--can they create a peaceful world. The core of all faiths, he taught, is love. His writings are attractive to the United Nations because they teach a "humanist philosophy and ... highlight the principles of tolerance, understanding and compassion," according to Ki-moon. Rumi's poems have gained a pop-culture following through recorded readings by celebrities, like Madonna's video "Bittersweet." Lyrics here. Rumi's teachings give us insights into the beliefs guiding the UN and its Alliance of Civilizations. Such beliefs mesh perfectly with the EU's secular humanistic philosophy. The bottom line in both Eastern and humanistic thinking is that human beings are God--though these teachings may have different ways of getting there. And, of course, the teaching that human beings can be like God is the same old lie Satan told Eve in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:5). This satanic teaching is, sadly, even being promoted within our own Christian quarters through the popular "Word-Faith Movement." My skin has crawled when I've heard Creflo Dollar blasphemously state on Christian television: "You are gods," while also denying the divinity of Christ. Watch him here. We know from Bible prophecy that the Antichrist also will hold to a type of this thinking. In the middle of Daniel's 70th week, he will go into the rebuilt Jewish temple and proclaim himself to be God (Daniel 11:36-37, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). So, we can see how different non-Christian beliefs seem to be merging into the end-time false religious system that the Bible describes as "the beast from the earth" (Revelation 13:11-18). This false religious system will support the "beast from the sea" (the revival of the Roman Empire under the Antichrist, which appears to have risen in the European Union). It also will be responsible for the most violent persecution of God's people ever. Christians--with their beliefs about sin, judgment and Jesus as the only Savior--are going to be seen as hate mongers standing in the way of global unity. And those who are more fully "enlightened" or "evolved"--a word choice depending on whether their thinking is Eastern or secular humanistic--will be seen as humanity's true saviors. Students of Bible prophecy would do well to keep their eyes on the Alliance of Civilizations. more...

Al Qaeda's No. 2 says end of West imminent, video shows CNN (July 5, 2007) - In a newly released videotaped message similar to a "fireside chat," al Qaeda's second-in-command issues advice and directives for the Muslim world, terrorism expert Laura Mansfield said Wednesday. In the one-hour, 34-minute video, titled "The Advice of One Concerned," Ayman al-Zawahiri includes clips from other videos and news broadcasts, including one from al-Furqan, the video production arm of the Islamic State of Iraq, according to Mansfield, who obtained the video. Al-Zawahiri says in the message that the defeat of the West is imminent, and that "the enemy" is trying to forestall the inevitable, Mansfield said. "The good omens of the new dawn of victory have begun to loom on the horizon, with Allah's permission and will," he says. "And the stage preceding victory is normally, in the history of nations, the stage in which there is most seen an increase in conspiracies, plots and inciting of discord in an attempt by the enemy, who has begun to see his defeat approach, to push back and delay the defeat as much as he can." Al-Zawahiri does not reference the recent terrorism incidents in the United Kingdom in the video. Mansfield said it appears to be more of a "state of the ummah [community]" style of address "intended to try and provide advice to the Muslim world in a manner similar to the 'fireside chat.'" Al-Zawahiri advises people in Iraq and the Palestinian territory, Mansfield said, and renews his call for young men to join the jihad in Iraq and Afghanistan. Included is a video clip of the late Sheikh Abdullah Azzam -- an extremist in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation -- reminding Muslims that jihad is their responsibility. Al-Zawahiri also rebukes Fatah for battling Hamas in the Palestinian territory, telling party members to "return to your religion, your Islam, your honor and your Arabness." Last month, al-Zawahiri, in an audiotaped message posted on several Islamist Web sites, voiced his support for Hamas leaders who maintain control of Gaza after a split with Fatah, a more moderate Palestinian faction. "We say to you, now that you are in control of Gaza, you should remember two things: One is that being in power is not a goal in itself, but the goal is, rather, to implement the rule of Allah," al-Zawahiri said in that audiotape, according to a CNN translation. "Two, this control is incomplete and unstable, for the [Israeli] plans are being made to invade Gaza. Unite with your mujahedeen brothers in Palestine and do not stir up problems with them. "Unite your ranks with all of the mujahedeen in the world for the upcoming battle [of Gaza] that I expect the Egyptians and Saudis to participate in." The audiotaped message was a reversal of al-Zawahiri's previous criticism of Hamas, issued after its leaders agreed to form a unity government with Fatah leaders. Hamas fighters wrested control of Gaza from Fatah security forces two weeks ago, prompting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, based in the West Bank, to replace the Hamas leadership with an emergency government. Since then, the United States, the European Union and Israel have agreed to release funds to the new Palestinian government. The money had been frozen after Hamas won legislative elections last year.

I place the NWO link here because of the perported writings of Albert Pike in 1871 of the three world wars. The last of which is the current war between the West and radical Islam. He writes,
"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 Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical 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 of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, 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 or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." | Albert Pike
That adoration will be directed at the man of sin, the antichrist.
Revelation 13:1-8
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
This will begin at the abomination of desolation, when the man of sin declares himself to be god as described in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. So the ultimate goal of everything we see happening in the world is all part of the plan to reveal Lucifer's antichrist and cause worship of him as god rather than the One True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It seem Albert Pike and his Masonic and Illuminati network had been planning for this and now we are seeing those plans come to fruition.

Children used as shields in Pakistan mosque: govt Reuters (July 5, 2007) - Women and children were being used as human shields by militants besieged in a mosque in Islamabad, the Pakistan government said on Thursday as security forces ratcheted up pressure on hundreds inside to surrender. Pakistan's Deputy Information Minister Tariq Azim Khan said the few students who had quit the mosque spoke of a nightmare scenario for security forces trying to keep casualties down. "A large number of women and children are being held hostage by armed men in room," Khan told a news conference, adding that the brother of the captured cleric was hiding in the basement of an attached madrasa with 25 "women hostages." "Yes, they're using them as human shields, because the people who have come out, they told us that they're telling women and children not to worry because as long as you're here forces will not attack us," he said. In an interview broadcast earlier on state television, the leader of the Red Mosque's Taliban-style student movement, caught the previous evening trying to escape wearing a woman's burqa, said 850 students remained inside, including 600 women and girls. Abdul Aziz, clad in a woman's all-enveloping garment like the one he was caught in, began the interview by dramatically lifting the black veil to reveal a face dominated by a bushy grey beard. He said 14 men were armed with Kalashnikovs in the mosque. "Now there are 50 to 60 hardcore militants inside the mosque who are armed with automatic weapons, grenades and petrol bombs," Interior Minister Ahmed Aftab Khan Sherpao said. Smiling through much of a bizarre interview Aziz said he had had urged others to leave the mosque, but some women teachers had persuaded girls to stay behind. "They are not being used as human shields, we only gave them passion for jihad," said Aziz, who was later remanded in court. more...

Mideast peace treaty possible this month, says expert Daily Star Egypt (July 4, 2007) - A meeting between the Quartet, the Palestinian Authority, and Israeli leaders will take place in Egypt mid-July, announced EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana. "Toward the middle of the month, we will recuperate this initiative," he said. Political analyst from the Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies Emad Gad told The Daily Star Egypt that he believed the countries were very close to negotiating a peace treaty delineating a two-state solution “very close” to what former PM Arafat was said to have been offered at the 2000 Camp David meeting. He believes that “ ‘moderate’ Palestinians are ready to sign a peace treaty with Israel.” While the Quartet meeting was postponed from late June due to high tensions within the Palestinian territories, Gad explains that the situation is very different now. “It is looking positive in the West Bank,” he says, where Israel has returned tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority and the EU has resumed relations with the territory. Abbas is also supported by the US, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. Abbas is actually stronger than before, explains Gad, as he and his Fatah party no longer need to take approval or agreement from Hamas, as was the case under their unity government. “Hamas is now controlling Gaza only.” The meeting will also represent former British PM Tony Blair’s first test as Middle East envoy for the Quartet — composed of the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and the United States. Despite being generally considered pro-Israel, Abbas had welcomed Blair as the new representative, saying the Arabs were ready to deal with Blair as mideast negotiator. “Blair can play a positive role in convincing the Palestinians and Israelis to negotiate,” says Gad. He explains that Blair’s close ties to US President Bush put him in an advantageous position, as the US is in a position to pressure the Israelis to resume negotiations.

There are two sides to the Middle East position on Israel, the "radical" Islamic side and the "moderate" Islamic side. As far as Bible prophecy goes, I believe we are about to see the moderate and radical paths played out in our near future. On the radical Islamic path, the Magog invasion that is stopped with fire and brimstone from heaven will soon play out when Israel is attacked by Russia, Turkey, Iran, Libya, and others. This is building now and the alliances are already in place. The moderate side for peace between Islam and Israel will come to fruition after that invasion fails, I believe. Israel won't cave in politically as much as they do now and Islam will have a better idea of who they're up against and will fake the peace game brought about through the work of the European Union's push for peace in the Middle East. So we have this mix of war and peace on the horizon that is eventually going to end up with the rebuilding of the temple on the Temple Mount and then later the abomination of desolation that begins the great tribulation.

Tornado kills 14, injures 146 in eastern China Reuters (July 4, 2007) - A tornado swept across eastern China, killing 14 people and injuring 146, state media reported on Wednesday, the latest casualties from bad weather that has devastated parts of the country this summer. The tornado hit three villages around Tianchang in Anhui province on Tuesday, destroying more than 100 houses, the official Xinhua news agency said. The bodies of seven people had been recovered from the rubble. State television showed footage of uprooted trees, toppled electric poles and a truck blown into a river. Of the 93 injured, 35 were in serious condition, Xinhua said. A further 200 people had been evacuated. Seven people were killed in Gaoyou city in neighboring Jiangsu province, the agency said, adding that 53 were injured. "Winds and heavy rain cut off power and telecommunications, ripped off rooftops and uprooted thousands of trees," a Gaoyou government official was quoted as saying. more...

Drought Is Sapping the Southeast, and Its Farmers The New York Times (July 4, 2007) - Northern Alabama has become acre after acre of shriveled cornstalks, cracked red dirt for miles and days of unrelenting white heat. The region’s most severe drought in over a century has farmers here averting their gaze from a future that looks as bleak as their fields. The drought is worst here, but it is wilting much of the Southeast, causing watering restrictions and curtailed crops in Georgia, premature cattle sales in Mississippi and Tennessee, and rivers so low that power companies in the region are scrambling and barges are unable to navigate. Fourth of July fireworks are out of the question in many tinderbox areas. Hay to feed livestock is in increasingly short supply, watermelons are coming in small and some places have not had good rain since the start of the year. On Monday, Dennis Bragg, the biggest farmer in Madison County, the drought’s center, clutched a scrawny, leathery cornstalk half as high as it should be, barely reaching his waist. A healthy one should now be towering over him, according to the calendar. “This right here is going to be a zero,” Mr. Bragg said, pushing the puny thing away. “This is what we call a weed.” The field of muted green will be a loss. Down the road, he stopped his truck at a barren hillside that should be carpeted with green soy plants. “I tend not come over here and look at it,” he said, bending his head. “This whole hill never came up because of the drought.” In the browning corn fields here, the light breeze makes a tindery noise as it rustles the dry stalks. Struggling to pay their bills, farmers here in the Tennessee Valley say they are burning through cash reserves and staring at bankruptcy, as last year’s dry weather turned into a singeing drought this year. Gleaming steel grain bins that should be full of corn ready to become ethanol are virtually empty. Cattle sales are several times normal; the farmers have nothing to feed them. Harvest day’s expected small returns will be make-or-break time, farmers here say. more...

The third seal is the black horse and speaks of famine. With all the weather changes due to global warming, the slightest changes in ocean currents and wind currents can affect crops like this. I think it is these kinds of events due to increased solar activity that will help bring about famine in the near future. Of course I hope I'm wrong, but the timing would seem to fit in the next couple years.

Summer under a cloud as weather turns angry in London This is London (July 4, 2007) - Looming angrily over London, this is the massive cloud that brought weather havoc to the capital. Within an hour, its devastating work was done. Hailstones the size of marbles had battered Battersea and flashfloods caused chaos in Clapham. Lightning lit up the blackened sky. Taken from the 17th floor of the London Television Centre on the South Bank, this stunning picture shows the enormity of the cloud that heralded Tuesday's storms - the latest in this summer of dramatic contrasts. Only four miles away the tennis at Wimbledon was rained off yet again as the weather was blamed for a big fall in this year's attendance. Two girls aged 13 and 15 were treated for serious burns after being struck by lightning at the end of the school day at Ipswich High School. The East of England Ambulance Service said the strike had blown the girls' shoes apart. 'They were struck simultaneously,' said a spokesman. 'They both had entry and exit wounds on their arms and feet.' He said the girls, who remained conscious throughout their ordeal, had not suffered life-threatening injuries. The stormy start to July follows the third wettest June on record. According to Met Office statistics, 105.3mm or 41ins of rain fell last month. Only 1912 and 1982 were wetter. Moments after its passing, the sunshine-was out again. Commuters battling-their way home in the evening rush hour shook out soaking umbrellas and shrugged off steaming raincoats. Nick Ricketts of the Met officesaid: 'There had been an extended period of cold wet weather. When the sun finally arrived, it warmed the surface temperature and that mix caused the storms to begin.' Don't put away your umbrella (or sunscreen) just yet. According to the weathermen, our mixed-up summer hasn't finished with us. more with pictures...

Broadcasters eye 2 billion for Live Earth Reuters (July 3, 2007) - International broadcasters, environmental activists and some of the biggest names in pop music are in the starting blocks for one of the most ambitious global media events of all time. On Saturday, more than 150 acts -- including such marquee names as Madonna, the Police, Bon Jovi and Black Eyed Peas -- will perform at the Live Earth series of benefit concerts in support of a greener planet. The event, organized by Kevin Wall and Harvey Goldsmith -- the producers behind Bob Geldof's 2005 anti-poverty event, Live 8 -- is looking to reach 2 billion people in more than 120 countries worldwide. The concerts will be held in New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg and Hamburg, Germany. Inuit band Nunatak will even play a concert direct from Antarctica. Some of the world's biggest broadcasters are on board to carry the concerts live, including NBC Universal TV and Internet brands in the U.S., the BBC in Britain, NHK and Fuji TV in Japan and Pro7 in Germany. But while media attention is growing in such countries as the U.S. and the U.K., Live Earth has virtually no media footprint in nations including China or Turkey, where environmental issues are less front-and-center. more... This story is interesting in that the media complex is pushing it and carrying it over such a large area. I also find it interesting that it is planned for 7-7-07. The reason I find this interesting comes from watching They Sold Their Souls For Rock N' Roll, in which footage of famous rock n' roll stars reveals some scary connections to the occult and divining of spirits. Several artists report that when they are on stage they are not the ones playing. Do I think something is going to happen? Not really, at least not on the surface level. I've just been listening to a Coast To Coast AM show from July 2, 2007 that discusses modern technology being researched to affect the mind through radio frequency and the like. Seeing the effects of television in programming the population by those who design the programming, as well as hearing of some of the technologies and understanding the future according to Bible prophecy, this medium of communicating is a big tool to program mass conciousness in a subtle way. At the very least, it is clear that the general population is completely enamored of many of these artists essentially to the point of worship in some extreme cases. Understanding this and seeing a big program like this coming with the participants from Hollywood and rock n' roll, I can't help but question it. At a very basic level at least, it will be an opportunity for all the participants to get together backstage beyond their performances on stage. If you haven't watched the video above, please do and be prepared to question the source.

'Gay'-rights leader quits homosexuality WorldNetDaily (July 3, 2007) - He was a rising star in the "gay rights" movement, but Michael Glatze now declares not only has he given up activism – he's no longer a homosexual. Glatze – who had become a frequent media source as founding editor of Young Gay America magazine – tells the story of his transformation in an exclusive column published today by WND. Although Glatze cut himself off from the homosexual community about a year and a half ago, he says the column likely will surprise some people. "This will actually be news to anybody I used to relate to," he told WND. The radical change in his life, Glatze recalls, began with inner "promptings" he now attributes to God. "I hope I can share my story," he said. "I feel strongly God has put me here for a reason. Even in the darkest days of late-night parties, substance abuse and all kinds of things – when I felt like, 'Why am I here, what am I doing?' – there was always a voice there. "I didn't know what to call it, or if I could trust it, but it said 'hold on.'" Glatze said he became aware of homosexual feelings at about the age of 14 and publicly declared himself "gay" at age 20. Finally, after a decade in which his leadership role in the homosexual activist world grew – but alongside it, a mysterious inner conflict – he says he finally was "liberated." In fact, he writes in his WND column today, "'coming out' from under the influence of the homosexual mindset was the most liberating, beautiful and astonishing thing I've ever experienced in my entire life." Before "coming out" in his column today, Glatze contacted WND Managing Editor David Kupelian after reading his book, "The Marketing of Evil, which Glatze said "has given me so much help in my process of healing from the profound influences of evil in our current society." "There is nothing that would give me more pleasure," he wrote to Kupelian, "than to say the Truth about 'homosexuality' and atone for my sins in that regard." Glatze's transformation calls to mind that of another prominent "gay" magazine publisher who also has renounced her former lifestyle. Lesbian activist Charlene Cothran, longtime publisher of Venus magazine, became a Christian and gave her magazine a new mission "to encourage, educate and assist those who desire to leave a life of homosexuality." She adds: "Our ultimate mission is to win souls for Christ, and to do so by showing love to all God's people." In his column, Glatze doesn't mince words, calling homosexual sex purely "lust-based," meaning it can never fully satisfy. "It's a neurotic process rather than a natural, normal one," he writes. "Normal is normal – and has been called normal for a reason." more...

Report: Israel, Syria fortifying northern border The Jerusalem Post (July 2, 2007) - Both Israel and Syria are conducting reinforcement work on each side of the border in the Golan Heights, Channel 10 reported Monday evening. An Israel laborer told Channel 10 that he was hired to build ramps for the transport of tanks. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said during Monday's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting that although Israel was maintaining a higher level of military preparedness, Syria did not pose an immediate threat.

Lieberman: Iran Has Declared War (July 2, 2007) - Connecticut Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman asserted Monday that the Iranian government has in effect declared war on the United States. Lieberman commented after a U.S. military spokesman said Tehran's senior officials were aware of efforts to encourage violence against Americans in Iraq. "The fact is that the Iranian government has by its actions declared war on us," said Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats. As a result, he continued, "The United States government has a responsibility to use all instruments at its disposal to stop these terrorist attacks against our soldiers and allies in Iraq, including keeping open the possibility of using military force against the terrorist infrastructure inside Iran." He stopped short of advocating a military strike, but said that "while I sincerely hope that diplomacy alone can convince the Iranian government to stop these attacks, our diplomatic efforts are only likely to succeed if backed by a credible threat of force." Lieberman said he hoped the latest news about Iran would help quash calls in Congress to withdraw U. S. troops. Withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq at this time, he added, "will give Iranians exactly what they want most" -- an "epic victory" for forces of terrorism. "Iran's purpose in sponsoring these attacks against our soldiers is clear," he said. "The Iranian government wants to push the United States out of Iraq. "For Congress to mandate a retreat from Iraq," he said, "will give the Iranians exactly what they want most. A retreat would not only represent a catastrophic defeat for the United States, but an epic victory for Iran, Hezbollah and the forces of Islamist terrorism." more...

Hamas TV to replace "martyred" Mickey Mouse look-alike Reuters UK (July 2, 2007) - A Hamas television station that last week killed off a Mickey Mouse look-alike who urged children to fight against Israel will use other famous characters to further their Islamist agenda, station officials said on Monday. The host of the children's show "Tomorrow's Pioneers", Farfur, dressed in a full body-suit to resemble the Walt Disney cartoon character. The character was beaten to death in the show's final episode last week by a character posing as an Israeli. Farfur and a female co-host instructed their young viewers on Hamas's militant brand of Muslim piety and urged children to support armed resistance against Israel. Mohammad Saeed, the director of production at Al-Aqsa Television, told Reuters the station would use other famous cartoon characters in future shows. "Farfur was a story alive and he has turned into another story as a (martyr)," Saeed said. The show had drawn complaints from Israeli watchdog groups.

'Europe Has Been Saved': Sarkozy Calls on EU to Do More EU Business (July 2, 2007) - Proclaiming "Europe has been saved" with a new treaty, French President Nicolas Sarkozy called Monday on the EU to open debate on a string of prickly issues, from borders to the euro. "Europe was in danger, undermined by successive crises, undermined by public distrust, undermined by doubt. I believe that today, Europe has been saved," Sarkozy said in a major address in the eastern French city of Strasbourg. The new treaty was agreed during marathon talks in Brussels on June 23 to replace the constitution that was rejected by French and Dutch voters two years ago, triggering a crisis within the bloc. The treaty that is to be drafted by an intergovernmental conference opening on July 23 will spell out the functions of EU institutions and create a new post of EU president for a period of two and half years, replacing the current system of six-month rotating presidencies between member states. Sarkozy hailed the breakthrough as the "renewal of the European spirit" and said the 27-nation bloc should now set out to tackle major issues as part of a quest for "renaissance." He also lambasted what he described as a "bureaucratic Europe" caught up in meetings that served no purpose and producing "eight-page communiques" of unintelligbile statements. The president, who took over from Jacques Chirac in May, spoke as he prepared to attend a meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Brussels on Monday to present his plan to delay by two years to 2012 the target of a balanced budget. On Monday, Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Socrates, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency, said France could expect a cool reception from finance ministers if it wants to change the rules. "We need a very stringent budget policy and that applies everywhere whether in Portugal or France or the other countries," said Socrates. During his presidential campaign, Sarkozy repeatedly attacked the strength of the euro and argued that governments of the 13-nation eurozone should have a say in the rate. "I want to open all of the debates; I want to ask all of the questions and I want to raise all of the problems," Sarkozy said of his presence at the Brussels finance ministers meeting. He appealed for "a Europe that does not sit idle while factories relocate and which does not accept the dictatorship of the markets." Sarkozy said French businesses were the victims of unfair competition from "countries that mock environmental concerns, have no respect for social rights and practice tax dumping." Alluding to Turkey's bid to join the European Union, Sarkozy called for "a Europe that does not dilute itself by enlarging without end" and said the bloc must debate the issue of borders to avoid becoming a "sub-region of the United Nations." The president has run into resistance from Portugal, which has just taken over the EU presidency and served notice that it had its hands full with the drafting of the new reform treaty.

The War is Here -- Are You Ready? Family Security Matters (July 2, 2007) - In a style reminiscent of the vehicle born incendiary explosive devices (VBIED) used in Iraq and by terrorists worldwide, two Mercedes were found in London this weekend packed with gasoline, gas canisters and nails. The bombs were to be exploded using cell phones as remote detonators, another favorite tactic of those terrorists who do not wish to die themselves. Had the plan been successful, potentially hundreds of innocent civilians would have been brutally murdered either by the explosions or by the deadly projectiles that the nails would have become. London was saved by alert citizens who noticed something was amiss and took swift action. The United States, because of lax border security and an inability to enforce its own immigration laws, will be next. Over the past few months, our news has been consumed with debate on an amnesty bill that would give legal status to millions of illegal aliens who have crossed the US/Mexico border. A red-faced, shrill Ted Kennedy would have us believe that these illegals are all here to pick lettuce. President Bush, who was adamant after September 11, 2001, that he would do all he could do to keep Americans safe, attempted to feed the American public the same false bill of goods. With the focus on the senorita cleaning motel rooms or the senor waiting outside Home Depot for a day labor job, Washington has forgotten that we are at war. We are at war with a sly, evasive enemy who preys on our unwillingness to secure our homeland. It should come as no surprise that the enemy is among us, waiting to strike. You have been warned. On October 19, 2001, J. Zane Walley reported for World Net Daily “Arabs have been reported crossing the Arizona border for an unknown period. Border rancher George Morgan encounters thousands of illegals crossing his ranch on a well-used trail. He relates a holiday event: ‘It was Thanksgiving 1998, and I stepped outside my house and there were over a hundred 'crossers' in my yard. Damnedest bunch of illegals I ever saw. All of them were wearing black pants, white shirts and string ties. Maybe they were hoping to blend in,’ he chuckled. ‘They took off, I called the Border Patrol, and a while later, an agent, Dan Green, let me know that they had caught them. He said that they were all Iranians.’ “According to Border Patrol spokesperson Rob Daniels, ‘Ten Egyptians were arrested recently near Douglas, Arizona. Each had paid $7,000 to be brought from Guatemala into Mexico and then across the border.’ "According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, hours after the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, an anonymous caller led Mexican immigration agents to 41 undocumented Iraqis waiting to cross into the United States." more...

Israel Begins Major Military Exercise In Golan, Reassures Syria Combined Jewish Philantanthropies (July 2, 2007) - Text of report by Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv [Report by Amir Rapaport: "IDF Begins Large-Scale Exercise in Golan"] : Against the backdrop of the tension between Israel and Syria, the IDF will soon begin a broad series of training exercises on the Golan Heights. Jerusalem sent Damascus a message, according to which there is no plan to attack the Syrians, and that this is only defensive training. The current activity is part of the system of exercises decided on in the framework of the process of drawing lessons from the Second Lebanon War, in an effort to prevent a repeat situation in which forces are insufficiently trained. The Israeli-Syrian tension began to mount a short time after the war in Lebanon, in the wake of statements by Syrian President Bashar al-Asad. At the time, Al-Asad said that if Israel did not heed his calls to conduct negotiations for returning the Golan through peaceful means, Syria would also prepare for the possibility of war. Officials in Israel internalized the statements and, on the order of IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, the IDF is currently completing its preparations in the event of war against Syria as early as this summer. Financial Assistance From the Iranians: The Syrian military is also in the midst of efforts to prepare for a possible war, including training and infrastructure work on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. Recently, Syria has even accelerated procurement of advanced weapons from Russia, among other ways through financial assistance that it is receiving from its ally, Iran. A few days ago, Syrian Foreign Minister Faruq al-Shar'a [as reported] said that "Syria is taking seriously the preparations in Israel ahead of a war between the countries." According to him, "Syria prefers peace, but it is not interested in secret talks with Israel." He added that officials in Damascus have the impression that Israel, like the United States, does not want to move forward in the peace process. "Ehud Olmert is not serious about peace. Israel will make peace with us if we compromise on the return of all of our occupied land, but we won't do that." more...

Solana suggests Iran behind Gaza, Lebanon attacks ABC News (July 2, 2007) - The European Union foreign policy chief suggested on Monday that Iran could be linked to the Hamas military takeover of Gaza, recent attacks on the Lebanese army, and on European peacekeepers in Lebanon. Javier Solana, who has led efforts to bring Iran back to the negotiating table over its nuclear programme, stopped short of blaming Tehran outright, but said the incidents could not be treated separately. "What happened in Gaza cannot be seen separately from what happened in Lebanon," he told a conference on the Middle East hosted by the Socialist group of the European Parliament. "There are new groups in the Palestinian camps," Solana said. "And the fact that UNIFIL has been attacked for the first time cannot be taken separately." Solana said that while the car bomb attack that killed six Spanish members of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) on June 24 was carried out by "forces we don't know", he added: "It would be naive not to see this as part of a global approach." "Somebody I know well -- Ali Larijani -- has said 'we are supporting Hamas'," he said, referring to the chief Iranian nuclear negotiator, who made the statement in an interview with Newsweek published last month. "All this is connected," Solana said. "It didn't happen by accident or miracle, it was probably planned." "It would be difficult to understand without seeing other important regional players behind it," he added, referring to "other forces" in Iran and Syria. Solana also said a postponed meeting of Western and Arab Middle East mediators with Israeli and Palestinian leaders would probably now happen in Cairo in mid-July. He said it was important to provide a new political impetus to the peace process, not just financial and humanitarian aid to the Palestinian government. Solana also said that in the long run it would be necessary to have an international peacekeeping presence in the West Bank and Gaza, but this was not an immediate priority.

In a follow-up to this story, Solana's spokesperson denies western news agency report on Iran, "The spokesperson of European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana dismissed Monday a western news agency report on statements attributed to Solana as "wrong interpretation". "It is wrong interpretation of what he said," Cristina Gallach told IRNA in Brussels Monday evening. She was referring to a dispatch by the British news agency Reuters from "Solana suggests Iran behind Gaza and Lebanon attacks". "We don't deal with suggestions. We are not in a business of suggestions. People take out sentences out of context to spin," noted Gallach." You read what he said above, what do you think he meant? Eventually when you try to play both sides, you run into problems like this.

Secret Document: U.S. Fears Terror 'Spectacular' Planned ABC News (July 1, 2007) - A secret U.S. law enforcement report, prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, warns that al Qaeda is planning a terror "spectacular" this summer, according to a senior official with access to the document. "This is reminiscent of the warnings and intelligence we were getting in the summer of 2001," the official told U.S. officials have kept the information secret, and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said today on ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" that the United States did not have "have any specific credible evidence that there's an attack focused on the United States at this point." As reported, U.S. law enforcement officials received intelligence reports two weeks ago warning of terror attacks in Glasgow and Prague, the Czech Republic, against "airport infrastructure and aircraft." The warnings apparently never reached officials in Scotland, who said this weekend they had received "no advance intelligence" that Glasgow might be a target. Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff declined to comment specifically on on the report today, but said "everything that we get is shared virtually instantaneously with our counterparts in Britain and vice versa." Unlike the United States, officials in Germany have publicly warned that the country could face a major attack this summer, also comparing the situation to the pre-9/11 summer of 2001. more...

Roswell theory revived by deathbed confession The Sunday Telegraph (July 1, 2007) - Exactly 60 years ago, a light aircraft was flying over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State, at a height of around 3000m. Suddenly, a brilliant flash of light illuminated the aircraft. Visibility was good and as pilot Kenneth Arnold scanned the sky to find the source of the light, he saw a group of nine shiny metallic objects flying information. He estimated their speed as being around 2600km/h - nearly three times faster than the top speed of any jet aircraft at the time. Soon, similar reports began to come in from all over America. This wasn't just the world's first UFO sighting, this was the birth of a phenomenon, one that still exercises an extraordinary fascination. Military authorities issued a press release, which began: "The many rumours regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the intelligence officer of the 509th Bomb Group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc." The headlines screamed: "Flying Disc captured by Air Force". Yet, just 24 hours later, the military changed their story and claimed the object they'd first thought was a "flying disc" was a weather balloon that had crashed on a nearby ranch. The key witness was Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer who had gone to the ranch to recover the wreckage. He described the metal as being wafer thin but incredibly tough. It was as light as balsa wood, but couldn't be cut or burned. These and similar accounts of the incident have largely been dismissed by all except the most dedicated believers. But last week came an astonishing new twist to the Roswell mystery. Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public relations officer at the base in 1947 and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases after the crash on the orders of the base commander, Colonel William Blanchard. Haut died last year but left a sworn affidavit to be opened only after his death. Last week, the text was released and asserts that the weather balloon claim was a cover story and that the real object had been recovered by the military and stored in a hangar. He described seeing not just the craft, but alien bodies. He wasn't the first Roswell witness to talk about alien bodies. Local undertaker Glenn Dennis had long claimed that he was contacted by authorities at Roswell shortly after the crash and asked to provide a number of child-sized coffins. When he arrived at the base, he was apparently told by a nurse (who later disappeared) that a UFO had crashed and that small humanoid extraterrestrials had been recovered. But Haut is the only one of the original participants to claim to have seen alien bodies. more...

I believe the UFOs being seen around the world are really happening. However, my view of what they are is not based on wild fancy or whatever they may say. I believe they are connected to angelic beings, whether fallen or not depends, but when it comes to the abduction stories of some people, there is definitely a demonic association to the experience. Even Whitley Strieber, a devout atheist, could only describe his encounter as "demonic." This is not to mention the horrible psychological and physical reports that come from those who have experienced these things. There is a definite spiritual nature associated with these experiences and what is reported is not of God. In fact, some report that they are told these beings planted humans on earth. I think this may be part of the great deception that is coming, but most people respond to the idea as ridiculous. I would like to point out that because of the spiritual nature of these beings, phasing in and out of our reality is to be expected and the idea is in the Bible as well. I've also heard that of those who experience abductions, 80% reported some connection to the occult whether in the past or present. I believe this also explains why not everyone sees them, I never have. I have heard too many stories, seen too many unexplained videos, and believe the Biblical account. Genesis 6 speaks to fallen angels coming to earth and mating with earth women whom they found desireable and bearing giants through them. It sounds fantastic and is commonly ignored or spiritualized away to mean something else. I think it was one of the reasons for the flood of Noah, and that Noah was "perfect in his generations" indicates why he and his family were chosen to be saved from the flood. Looking at the scope of scripture, it was through him that the lineage of Christ our Savior came through the nation of Israel. So even though it is something you may not have seen or personally experienced, be aware of the possibility. We should also have an answer if it does so that our faith is not affected negatively. For many believers, the lack of understanding of what the Bible says about this idea may pull some away from faith in Christ if it does suddenly happen. And now minutes later in my digging through the news, I found this article from Christian News Wire June 25, Prophecy Watch - Signs in the Stars,
“Well, now there is a different perspective on the UFO phenomenon and this one is from a Biblical standpoint. Mr. Richard Stout of Long Island, New York claims he has a spiritual gift from the Holy Spirit that guided him into understanding the answer to this strange phenomenon... “I am only being used as an instrument…” says Richard, “…This information must get out to the public as it is crucial people understand these so-called UFOs are in fact real and will be used as part of God’s judgments on man and we are that close to many signs and wonders.” It looks as if we aren’t alone after all, only these “aliens” are fallen angels masquerading as extraterrestrials from another planet!” |

The New World Order Tracking Device: RFID RINF Alternative News (July 1, 2007) - The Bermuda Government are issuing vehicle owners with credit card sized stickers containing a RFID chip and it is expected that every vehicle in Bermuda will carry one within a year or two. The scheme is mandatory and a $10,000 penalty applies if owners remove the chips. The first country to back the system was Singapore, well known for its lack of human rights. RFID readers are being placed in telephone poles and buildings throughout Bermuda, which enable authorities to monitor the past and present location of vehicles and record the speed at which they are travelling. The information is being sent to high speed computers that calculate everything you could possibly imagine about a travellers journey, even the route taken. It is planned that the computer will compile a list of driving offences within the past 24 hours and will automatically pass this information on to the police. Roger Crombie, a Bermuda resident and victim of RFID vehicle tracking said: “It should be stated that Dr. Brown, the Transport Minister who introduced this system, has said that he does not intend the chip to be used for any purpose other than tracking down drivers whose vehicles are not registered. I believe he means it, but it is not Dr. Brown’s intentions we have to worry about. It will take time to put the system in place, and Dr. Brown has said that he does not intend to stay in power forever. “The person to worry about is the Premier who succeeds Dr. Brown, or the one who succeeds that one. The chip system is the perfect method for keeping close track of citizens, a dictator’s dream,” said concerned citizen Mr. Crombie. Similar RFID systems are being used in New York and London, which has reduced traffic and cut business profits by 40%. The use of RFID chips are increasing around the world at an astonishing rate, with continuous promotion from New World Order heavyweights including the Bush Administration and also from the VeriChip Corp, who manufacture human implantable chips and have been pushing for RFID chips to be tested on the U.S. military. more...

Quiet or they might wake up...The Totalitarian Tiptoe David Icke Newsletter (July 1, 2007) - It is many years now since I coined the term 'The Totalitarian Tiptoe' for the technique of step-by-step changes leading to a long-planned goal. Each step is promoted as unconnected to all the others when in fact they are fundamentally connected and all lead in the same direction - centralised control. The idea of the Totalitarian Tiptoe is to diffuse the opposition there would be if they went from A to Z in one go. The change would be so great that heads would lift and eyes would open to ask the question: 'What's going on?' By taking baby steps, each change is sold as small and insignificant while the Shadow People orchestrate the steps to become, taken together, giant strides of change and imposition. There is no better example of this than the European Union and this week came another blatant example of the technique. This is also relevant to readers in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia-New Zealand because the same is happening there by the day. The European Union is only the precursor to four superstates that are being tiptoed into place. The others are the American Union (the North American Union - The United States, Canada and Mexico - is now secretly well advanced); the African Union; and the Asia-Pacific Union. These are designed to be the second tier of global control under a world government. If the manipulators had come clean and told the truth about these plans there would be have been an outcry decades ago. They knew this and so it has all been done on the sly, step by step. The major politicians of all major parties say one thing in public while pursuing a very different path behind the scenes. The most important public face of Britain's entry into the European Community/Union was the child abuser and Conservative Party Prime Minister, Edward Heath, who signed the treaty of membership in 1972. He told the people that the then European Economic Community, or EEC, was just a free trade zone and not planned to be a centrally-controlled United States of Europe. But while Heath was saying 'it's only about free trade', a Foreign Office memo in 1971 warned: '... the Community is a process of fundamental political importance implying progressive development towards a political union'. This memo was suppressed for 30 years. In fact, Heath was agreeing to British political union with Europe as far back as April 1962 when he was Lord Privy Seal in the Conservative government of Harold Macmillan. He told the Ministerial Council of the Western European Union that '... you have decided that those who join the Economic Communities as full members must also join the Political Union. I am sure that this was the right decision' (Command Paper 1720). more...

It's kind of scary how much information about the hidden history of politics is out there and where it is all leading. I can see how many people could get a whiff of this information and disregard it, it's part of our programming I think. The idea of "conspiracy" comes up and we immediately relegate the information to the kook section of memory to which we rarely go again. The more I understand Bible prophecy though, and our timing in it, the less I feel like a kook for seeing the possibility and the more blessed I feel to be led through information supporting Bible prophecy in regard to a world that will soon be controlled by the man of sin. The people have no power, even when we vote because all those in power or rich and well-known enough to get into power are all playing the same game with two faces. Given the nearness of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, I wouldn't be a good watchman to remain silent. What can we do about it? Watch and pray.
Luke 21:34-36
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The people killed amnesty The Washington Times (July 1, 2007) - The justifiably furious reaction of the American public, which deluged senators with telephone calls, e-mails and faxes, forced the Senate to reverse itself yesterday and send the amnesty bill crashing to defeat — a potentially fatal blow. It was a devastating setback for the Bush administration and its Democratic Party allies, in particular Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. Ted Kennedy. In addition to being an extraordinary substantive triumph for the American people, it was a huge victory for the conservative movement. Talkers such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and many others played an indispensable role in making available the research by the Heritage Foundation and NumbersUSA and analysis from editorial pages such as this one to tens of millions of Americans in a very short period of time. But ironically, by demonstrating in a powerful way its ability to reach and educate the public about the specific problems with the bill, talk radio has also made liberal politicians like Sen. Dianne Feinstein even more determined to revive the so-called Fairness Doctrine (the equal-time policy enforced by the Federal Communications Commission until it was eliminated in 1987 at the urging of President Reagan) in an effort to take away the one part of the mass media that conservatives dominate. On the final vote, virtually the entire conservative movement lined up against the bill. On the losing side were the leading Democratic presidential contenders — Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — and the Bush administration, vividly demonstrating the political gap between the president and the conservative movement. On Tuesday — just 48 hours before the legislative coalition supporting the bill crumbled — the bill appeared to have been given a new lease on life. Despite the abysmal poll ratings of the president and Congress, and the fact that barely one-quarter of the American public favored the bill, 64 senators (four more than needed) voted for cloture. This permitted Mr. Reid with White House support to bring the bill to the floor, together with a carefully selected group of amendments that amnesty advocates believed either 1) were unlikely to pass; or 2) if passed would not change the pro-amnesty thrust of the bill in a significant way; and 3) if necessary, could be stripped out of the legislation in conference. Yet just 48 hours later, the amnesty coalition collapsed, and the 64 Senate supporters became just 46. What happened? As we noted above, talk radio proved that in modern times, it is indispensable for conservative political success. Much of the credit should also go to the bipartisan lobbying organization NumbersUSA, a powerful advocate for strengthening border security, which made it clear to members of Congress that they weren't buying the phony games some lawmakers wanted to play: proposing tough-sounding amendments that stood little chance of becoming law, while voting for cloture — and in effect for amnesty. The 18 senators who switched from supporting amnesty on Tuesday to opposing it yesterday are Democrats Jeff Bingaman, Sherrod Brown, Tom Harkin, Ben Nelson, Mark Pryor and Jim Webb; and Republicans Kit Bond, Sam Brownback, Richard Burr, Norm Coleman, Susan Collins, Pete Domenici, John Ensign, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Ted Stevens, George Voinovich and John Warner.

Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship Unsealed Prophecy (July 1, 2007) - WOW! Has Vladimir Bukovksy been reading the Bible? Don’t know if he realizes it or not, but he is describing the EU in very much the same way as Daniel does. Here is a part of an interview with him:

Vladimir Bukovksy, the 63-year old former Soviet dissident, fears that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union. In a speech he delivered in Brussels last week Mr Bukovsky called the EU a “monster” that must be destroyed, the sooner the better, before it develops into a fullfledged totalitarian state.

Mr Bukovsky paid a visit to the European Parliament on Thursday at the invitation of Fidesz, the Hungarian Civic Forum. Fidesz, a member of the European Christian Democrat group, had invited the former Soviet dissident over from England, where he lives, on the occasion of this year’s 50th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Uprising. After his morning meeting with the Hungarians, Mr Bukovsky gave an afternoon speech in a Polish restaurant in the Trier straat, opposite the European Parliament, where he spoke at the invitation of the United Kingdom Independence Party, of which he is a patron.

An interview with Vladimir Bukovsky
Paul Belien:
You were a very famous Soviet dissident and now you are drawing a parallel between the European Union and the Soviet Union. Can you explain this?

Vladimir Bukovsky: I am referrring to structures, to certain ideologies being instilled, to the plans, the direction, the inevitable expansion, the obliteration of nations, which was the purpose of the Soviet Union. Most people do not understand this. They do not know it, but we do because we were raised in the Soviet Union where we had to study the Soviet ideology in school and at university. The ultimate purpose of the Soviet Union was to create a new historic entity, the Soviet people, all around the globe. The same is true in the EU today. They are trying to create a new people. They call this people “Europeans”, whatever that means.

According to Communist doctrine as well as to many forms of Socialist thinking, the state, the national state, is supposed to wither away. In Russia, however, the opposite happened. Instead of withering away the Soviet state became a very powerful state, but the nationalities were obliterated. But when the time of the Soviet collapse came these suppressed feelings of national identity came bouncing back and they nearly destroyed the country. It was so frightening.

PB: Do you think the same thing can happen when the European Union collapses?

VB: Absolutely, you can press a spring only that much, and the human psyche is very resilient you know. You can press it, you can press it, but don’t forget it is still accumulating a power to rebound. It is like a spring and it always goes to overshoot.

PB: But all these countries that joined the European Union did so voluntarily.

VB: No, they did not. Look at Denmark which voted against the Maastricht treaty twice. Look at Ireland [which voted against the Nice treaty]. Look at many other countries, they are under enormous pressure. It is almost blackmail. Switzerland was forced to vote five times in a referendum. All five times they have rejected it, but who knows what will happen the sixth time, the seventh time. It is always the same thing. It is a trick for idiots. The people have to vote in referendums until the people vote the way that is wanted. Then they have to stop voting. Why stop? Let us continue voting. The European Union is what Americans would call a shotgun marriage.

PB: What do you think young people should do about the European Union? What should they insist on, to democratize the institution or just abolish it?

VB: I think that the European Union, like the Soviet Union, cannot be democratized. Gorbachev tried to democratize it and it blew up. This kind of structures cannot be democratized.

PB: But we have a European Parliament which is chosen by the people.

VB: The European Parliament is elected on the basis of proportional representation, which is not true representation. And what does it vote on? The percentage of fat in yoghurt, that kind of thing. It is ridiculous. It is given the task of the Supreme Soviet. The average MP can speak for six minutes per year in the Chamber. That is not a real parliament.

And here is what Daniel had to say more than 2000 years back:

Daniel 7:7-8
After this I saw in the night-visions, and, behold, a fourth beast, terrible and powerful, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

EU pours £3.8bn into ‘brainwashing campaign’ UK Telegraph (July 2007) - The European Union is spending £3.8 billion a year on "propaganda" to win over its sceptical citizens, it is claimed. As well as publishing a plethora of pamphlets and employing an army of public relations staff, the EU has spent hundreds of millions of pounds on teaching aids, school trips and even cartoons. According to Lee Rotherham, the author of a new book which examines the EU’s spending on its image, such initiatives are an "outrageous and cynical attempt to brainwash the young". The Europa Diary, a gift from the EU to schoolchildren, is one example cited by Mr Rotherham in Hearts & Minds: the Tax-funded PR Campaign to Make us Love Brussels. The diary has been sent to 1.2 million pupils in more than 9,000 schools across Europe. Its calendar includes pages that describe the European Parliament as "the people’s voice" and claims that the EU has "improved the quality of people’s everyday lives". A version of the diary sent to Dutch schools describes the European Parliament as the "most important multi-national organ in the world". Let’s Explore Europe Together, an online teaching aid aimed at nine to 12-year-olds, describes the EU as a "really good plan that had never been tried before". The European Parliament has also funded a cartoon called Operation Red Dragon, featuring a daring, fictitious MEP, Elisa Correr, who becomes "embroiled in a risky and fascinating adventure while in pursuit of her parliamentary activities". She dodges assassins, hunts down a general who broke an arms embargo, and still has time to debate copyright law in Brussels. The text admits: "European Parliamentarians do not generally lead such dangerous lives ... nevertheless you can learn about the work of an MEP and other European institutions from the story."

America - A Nation of Apathy toward Truth! Last Trumpet Newsletter (July 2007)

John 8:43-45
Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Romans 1:28-31
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine the greatest of all problems in the United States at this present time. In fact, it is the condition that leads to all other problems and allows Satan and his Illuministic human stooges to advance their cause and hellish agenda of one-world governance in a new world order. The problem I am referring to is apathy toward truth. In the Scriptures above, our Saviour told us that it has always been Satan's job and purpose to lay a foundation of deceit and build upon it with lies. Lies thrive in the darkness of misunderstanding and secrecy, but truth shines forth and cannot be hid. People everywhere have a choice to accept or reject the light of truth. If they reject truth, there is nothing left but the darkness of Satan's kingdom and domain. The Lord Jesus clearly stated this as the greatest problem in the world in John 3:19 as follows: "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." We now live in a world full of people who believe a whole lot of things that just aren't so, and they know very little about what is truly happening. It has been correctly stated that you can sell lies, but you cannot give the truth away. I might add that the truth is freely given to all who would gladly receive it and love it. Lies, however, always come with an ever-increasing price. Religions, governments, commerce, and every endeavor of sinful man are built on lies and deceit and are perpetuated by them. All that Satan has built up and established in the world through wars, commotions, craftiness of conspiracies, varieties of religions, and brainwashing philosophies are leading up to one great lie and grand deception at the end of this world. Even now, and more than ever, people everywhere are caught in its tentacles. The world is caught in a world wide web, an ensnaring net or Internet. The effect of all of this is converting people into living images of the beast; who look, talk, and act like programmed stooges and obey like trained seals. These people have no capacity for truth as our Saviour said, and when the throne of the antichrist makes its grand crescendo to rise up, only to quickly fall; the masses of people will rise and fall with it when the last trumpet sounds and our Saviour appears and the sky is filled with heavenly angels. This wondrous and marvelous event is not far off. The urgent question is: are you ready for that imminent day? Where will you be for eternity? The truth is that religion will never save you, and neither will your own best behavior. Only the Lord Jesus can save you, and He will if your truly repent, turn away from evil, and obey the Gospel as they did on the day of Pentecost. You will know immediate peace when you do this. Do it now, while there is a little time left! This year of 2007 is the 400th anniversary of America. (1) The Jamestown colony was founded in 1607 as the first settlement in America, and it was named after the same King James of England that ordered the translation of the Authorized Version, also known as the King James Bible. In a previous publication, I mentioned that the number 400 is highly significant in the Scripture. Israel was in bondage in Egypt for 400 years, and there were 400 years of silence between the Old and New Testaments during which time there was no prophet. In both of these cases, when the 400 years were over, there was a great manifestation of the Almighty in a sovereign move of His Spirit that changed the world forever. Now, America has existed for 400 years! What will happen next? more...

Alex Jones receives "anonymously" the member roster of the Bohemian Grove InfoWars (June 29, 2007) - An interesting package came into the Infowars mailbox recently-- sent anonymously with no return address-- but the contents revealed the reason for secrecy. Someone has shipped our office the 2006 membership roster for the secretive and exclusive Bohemian Grove, which Alex Jones infiltrated and exposed in 2000. A number of high profile elites appear on the list, including David Rockefeller (and son), Henry Kissinger, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, David Gergen (who Alex Jones confronted about his grove membership), Colin Powell, George P. Shultz, Donald Rumsfeld and even Kenneth Starr, who gained attention after prosecuting Bill Clinton. See a 1981 news report on the grove. Many U.S. Presidents have gone to the grove, but most do not appear on the membership roster, though we know that Reagan, Nixon (both pictured below at the Grove), George W. Bush, Herbert Hoover and many other presidents have also attended but are not listed, as is the case for presidential advisor Karl Rove. Walter Cronkite, the infamous and notable TV journalist, is also a member and listed in the directory. The 'P' next to his name denotes "Regular - Professional." Also listed is the King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf. Beyond Presidents and elite world controllers, the exclusive male-only club has obviously used the appeal of the retreat to influence the world of academia-- at least 50 well-known universities are represented at Bohemian Grove, including almost every school in California, at least any that come to mind. The members-- which includes listings of older and deceased members who no longer attend-- are influential faculty members, board members, trustees or presidents of universities. Stanford University with 17 members and U.C. Berkeley with 19 members, were the most heavily represented schools. (See members from academia below-- note: only those members with schools listed by their name were counted as academia, with many other members listed by city and name or only by name). more...

While the information sent anonymously cannot be taken as fact, I find it interesting that our nation's scholarship is in such high attendance. Knowing that the best way to affect change long-term is to brainwash the youth, and experiencing that ourselves in the education system, I have no doubt that many in the power structure of the education system are active participants in the plans of the New World Order. I also have no doubt that many people we deem as good are really playing an act in public while their true intentions are only seen in these groups of common interest, that of bringing a New World Order and its connections with the occult. We are conditioned to take these "conspiracy theories" with a grain of salt. I know I have for a long time. But the closer we get to the end, the more bold these groups are becoming and the more people in the know are speaking up about these activities. So while we can't take the names listed here as fact, actions speak louder than words and our nation is definitely moving toward a New World Order, whether we like it or not. And let's not forget the timing of HIStory, Our Future, which places the abomination of desolation in February of 2009. If we are truly that close, we should expect that global governance is at our doorstep. Indeed, it is already in place and just putting the finishing touches together so that one man will be given control of the world when he displays his signs and lying wonders to an amazed world that knows they cannot defeat the beast.

Was there an Ancient Language of Universal Symbols? The Daily Galaxy (June 28, 2007) - Over the last several years, similar petroglyphs have been identified on as many as five continents. They all date from roughly the same time-period. In the late 20th century, archaeologists discovered a collection of symbols carved in stone as petroglyphs in the Negev desert of Israel that appeared to be writing. Dating of these symbols showed that they were made over an extended period time, beginning around 1700 BC. This strange collection of symbols was first examined by Dr. James Harris, a petroglyph expert and archaeologist from Brigham Young University. He identified the alphabet as being a proto-Canaanite system, which successfully translated by using old-Hebrew or Thalmudic phonetic sounds. Earlier, William McGlone, an amateur archaeologist and retired space engineer, discovered the same collection of symbols carved in heavily patinated stones surrounding the Southeast town of La Junta, Colorado. Dating of the patina corresponded to the same era as the writing found in Harkarkom in Israel. The petroglyphs in Colorado were photographed and posted on the Internet. Within a few years, images of similar petroglyphs were sent to the site where the images were hosted, Viewzone, by archaeologists and historians from many different global locations. This included a huge collection of writing from the Republic of Yemen at the site of the palace of the Queen of Sheba. Strangely, both the writing in Colorado and Yemen spoke of a similar event, possibly related to the Sun, which was prophesied to change human civilization. Subsequent translations of sites in Oklahoma, Australia and South America have added more details about this future event. The majority of the petroglyphs have already been verified to be of ancient origin, which makes it quite puzzling to experts. How did they all have the same language and tell the same story on opposite ends of a globe? Perhaps our ancient ancestors traveled more than previously thought possible. Research is currently being conducted to further validate the authenticity and common features of the writing.

NASA Satellite Captures First View of 'Night-Shining Clouds' NASA (June 28, 2007)

A NASA satellite has captured the first occurrence this summer of mysterious shiny polar clouds that form 50 miles above Earth’s surface. The first observations of these "night-shining" clouds by a satellite named "AIM" which means Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere, occurred above 70 degrees north latitude on May 25. People on the ground began seeing the clouds on June 6 over Northern Europe. AIM is the first satellite mission dedicated to the study of these unusual clouds. These mystifying clouds are called Polar Mesospheric Clouds, or PMCs, when they are viewed from space and referred to as "night-shining" clouds or Noctilucent Clouds, when viewed by observers on Earth. The clouds form in an upper layer of the Earth’s atmosphere called the mesosphere during the Northern Hemisphere’s summer season which began in mid-May and extends through the end of August and are being seen by AIM’s instruments more frequently as the season progresses. They are also seen in the high latitudes during the summer months in the Southern Hemisphere. Very little is known about how these clouds form over the poles, why they are being seen more frequently and at lower latitudes than ever before, or why they have been growing brighter. AIM will observe two complete cloud seasons over both poles, documenting an entire life cycle of the shiny clouds for the first time. "It is clear that these clouds are changing, a sign that a part of our atmosphere is changing and we do not understand how, why or what it means," stated AIM principal investigator James Russell III of Hampton University, Hampton, Va. "These observations suggest a connection with global change in the lower atmosphere and could represent an early warning that our Earth environment is being changed." AIM is providing scientists with information about how many of these clouds there are around the world and how different they are including the sizes and shapes of the tiny particles that make them up. Scientists believe that the shining clouds form at high latitudes early in the season and then move to lower latitudes as time progresses. The AIM science team is studying this new data to understand why these clouds form and vary, and if they may be related to global change. Once the summer season ends in the Northern Hemisphere around mid- to late August, the Southern Hemisphere spring season starts about three months later in the period around mid- to late November. AIM will then be watching for shining clouds in the Southern Hemisphere from November through mid-March when that season ends. AIM and is managed at Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD and the AIM Project Data Center is located at Hampton University.

Could these odd recent developments that are getting brighter have to do with the increased solar activity that is heating up earth and the other planets?

Opponents of E.U. Treaty Accused of Being 'Terrorists' Daily Express (June 17, 2007) - Eurosceptics have been branded "terrorists" just days before Tony Blair prepares to fly to Brussels to smuggle in the new EU constitution by the back door. Critics of the EU’s secret plans to bring back the failed European constitution by stealth at this week’s summit were blasted by the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano. The Italian head of state told a news conference in Siena last week that "those who are anti EU are terrorists". And he attacked eurosceptics who warn that the promised new EU treaty will go too far in eroding the powers of member states, saying: "It is psychological terrorism to suggest the spectre of a European superstate." His comments emerged as EU foreign ministers gather in Luxembourg today to negotiate the new treaty to replace the failed EU constitution, ahead of a summit of EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday. Ahead of what will be his last major political event before he hands over to Gordon Brown, Mr Blair has been forced to deny widespread claims that he will seek to sign up to a new treaty which will revive the key planks of the constitution, which was doomed after it was rejected by French and Dutch voters in referendums in 2005. Downing Street issued a list of Britain’s "red line" issues where Mr Blair will refuse to hand over powers to Brussels, such as the veto on criminal justice and labour law and Britain’s seat on the UN security council, but refused to offer British voters a referendum on the treaty. But critics say Mr Blair is, like most other EU leaders, determined to bring the failed EU constitution in by the back door by simply renaming the document as an "amending treaty" and slimming down its original 500 pages. Campaigners for national referendums on the proposed treaty were left outraged when President Napolitano spoke out last Monday alongside the German President, Horst Kohler, who nodded in agreement at his comments.
