note, opinion and commentary:
Rev. Father Deacon
Christopher Herman, the son of our former spiritual father, Vladyka Michael
Peter Herman of reposed memory for providing us the articles and their various
We believe that what is presented is a step in
the right direction to bring our Orthodox Faith alive to all and a means to cure
some of the ills that separate our Roman faithful from the root, ground and base
of all things Christian: being Orthodox Catholic Christianity that began in the
A.D. 800's and culminated in the official schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of
the Catholic Church from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D.
By presenting these
articles and informational pages and
subsequent, hoped for, weekly presentations, this endeavor will reach a wider
audience and provide a means for dialogue. For it is in and through the
Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior, that love, compassion and
understanding may come about. In saying this truth, it also means that we
make another attempt to fulfill the ideal of why we are called "Christian" ...
Orthodoxy is not a religion. It is CHRISTIANITY itself! To a true
Christian, the events taking place through out the world and locally in the USA
is important because of how it may (and in some instances has) affected our
religious rights and freedoms here in the U.S.A and in some other Western World

As Thou, Father, art in

"Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, writing for
the UK Telegraph, said that none of this was supposed to happen — that once
the Euro “deal” was concluded on Thursday, all would be well. He noted, “The
working assumption is that Greece alone is the essential problem, and that
other troubles are under control.” But he added,
This rescue machinery may prove to be a Maginot Line if — as many economists
think — the danger comes from within Portugal, Spain and Italy. Like Greece,
these countries have lost 30 percent in labour competitiveness against Germany
since the mid-1990s. That is the root of the EMU [European Monetary Union]
crisis. A toxic mix of fiscal tightening, higher debt costs, and now the
threat of a Eurozone recession risks tipping them over the edge.
The immediate impact of Greece's default is that investors are pricing in
higher risk premiums for other European Union countries’ debt, which explains
the unsustainably high interest rates on the Portuguese 10-year notes. (U.S.
10-year notes yield just over two percent versus 12 percent for Portugal.) A
spokesman for the Royal Bank of Scotland said the Euro summit only “solves one
problem by creating another. We expect to see the [debt] markets deteriorate
further and see the ECB as the only backstop.”
Commentators expect the Portuguese Prime Minister to ask for at least another
$80 to $100 billion to tide things over, which appears to be manageable in the
short run. Leveraging of the rescue fund (the European Financial Stability
Facility, or EFSF) up to one trillion dollars or more will probably allow
Portugal’s needs to be met (in exchange for more austerity measures, of
course). But the contagion is spreading.
Spain’s money supply has also contracted sharply, according to the European
Central Bank, forecasting a similar inevitable need for help. But Spain’s
economy is six-and-a-half times larger than Portugal’s, and Spain’s bailout
demands could easily overwhelm even the newly created rescue fund.
And so the recent Euro “deal” can be seen for what it truly is, merely a
stopgap measure to placate the banks and impose more extra-legal austerity
measures on hapless countries’ populaces who never knew they were giving up
essential sovereignty in exchange for easy money. As countries such as
Portugal, Spain, and Italy get pushed to the edge, the EU will rapidly run out
of options. The Eurozone crisis is far from over. Indeed, it is just

Matt Taibbi's take on Ricky the Rent Boy (http://freedominourtime.blogspot.com/2011/08/ricky-rent-boy.html):
"Rick Perry has managed to set a scary new low in the annals of opportunism,
turning Texas into a swamp of political incest and backroom dealing on a scale
not often seen this side of the Congo or Sierra Leone.... On the human level
he is a nonpersonality, an almost perfect cipher - a man whose only
discernible passion is his extreme willingness to be whatever someone will pay
him to be, or vote for him to be." --
"According to PolitiFact’s data, the
stark contrasts between candidate Obama and President Obama may help explain
why so many "Hope" and "Change" posters have faded. The government watchdog
calculated that of the 506 pledges candidate Obama offered during his 2008
campaign, he fulfilled only 151, or just below 30 percent. Tacking on campaign
vows that the President compromised on, his "mission accomplished" score rises
to a meager 39 percent. "

"More than 2.5 million people who paid
a minimum of €1 and signed a form saying they shared the values of the left
voted on Sunday in France's first open primary election for a presidential
candidate. The televised debates between the six candidates have not
degenerated into slanging matches, as many predicted they would, and the first
debate got 5 million viewers – more than the French remake of MasterChef. In
other words, the idea to throw open the doors to a debate, which has
traditionally been the preserve of the backroom, has been a political success.
It has given a national platform to younger candidates – Arnaud Montebourg and
Manuel Valls – who would otherwise have struggled to get the airtime, and it
has allowed the frontrunners, François Hollande and Martine Aubry, to grow in
stature. The two-round primary – the second is in a week's time – will have
done much to consign the image of a party dominated by political barons to the
"The conservative president, plagued
by dismal approval ratings, tried to erase concerns about the euro crisis with
a tutoring session on economics.
The interview was characterized by wagging fingers and repeated phrases, such
as "Let's say it straight," with Sarkozy playing the role of the responsible
father to his country. "I don't comment, I decide," he declared before
offering this statement for consideration: "We find ourselves at the start of
a new world."
But it was more difficult for Sarkozy to explain France's homemade structural
problems, such as the country's mountain of debt, budgetary problems and
foreign trade deficit. For these, he found reasons from the past, such as
decisions made during the Mitterrand era or the 35-hour work week introduced
in 2001 -- a move he described as "a mistake, a misfortune, madness."
For his part, Sarkozy said he'd done everything right: pension reform,
university reform, reductions in the number of civil service jobs and a
national investment program. "Just don't be pessimistic," he urged. Does
France not have exemplary automobile, aviation and agricultural industries, he
asked, not to mention container ports and the TGV high-speed rail service?
Sarkozy also elegantly sidestepped addressing his own failures -- growing
unemployment, skyrocketing debt that has increased by €757 billion under his
presidency (France's total national deficit is around €1.3 trillion, the
highest level of any euro member state with an AAA rating) and tax increases."
"The conspiracy to control the world,
in fact, is housed in Rome, Israel, Washington, DC and most of all, London's
City. Not surprisingly, three of these locations are in areas immune to the
larger countries' laws and enforcement thereof. They are indeed a law unto
You won't find that out from Forbes, however, which has reported (along with
the rest of the mainstream media) on a New Scientist survey of corporate
ownership that shows about 150 corporate entities control 40 percent of the
world's corporate wealth.
This is, say the paper's authors (according to Forbes), the first map of the
structure of global corporate control. Well, whoopee. It may be a map, but in
reality it's just another attempt to muddy the issue. It's like proposing that
Barack Obama or Angela Merkel or Nikolas Sarkozy are in charge of their
respective states. They are not. They're elected, but their orders come from a
much higher place. Here's some more from the Forbes article:
Such structures occur commonly in biology, things like fungus, lichen and
weeds. Economists say the danger comes when you combine hyperconnection with
the concentration of power. The Swiss scientists warn that this can lead to an
unstable environment. No Scheisse, Sherlock. But the web of corporate control
is not de facto a conspiracy of world domination.
There are many reasons for tightly bundled nodes and connections:
anti-takeover strategies, reduction of transaction costs, risk sharing,
increasing trust and groups of interest. A few caveats with the data set: It
excludes GSEs and privately-held companies and is dominated by banks,
institutional investors and mutual funds that don't always have much in the
way of control over assets ...
A better list would be the actual asset OWNERS, rather than the vendors who
manage, house and clear said assets." See the top 50 on the control list at
the New Scientist. One of the co-authors, Dr. James Glattfelder, says he will
be publishing next week the bigger list of 737 companies that control 80% of
the global economy. The 147 are included in that group.
Yes, a better list WOULD be of asset owners. But you won't find one. The
founder of the Rothschild dynasty put it into his will – control is to be
extended via a network of secretive, private, interlocking trusts. At this
point it would take an effort even larger than the present one to figure out
what the Rothschilds and other central banking families own – even if you
could gain access to the information. And you can't.
Jews do not "run the world" – or certainly not by themselves. The power
nexuses include political and industry leaders, military men and even portions
of the religious establishment of the Roman Catholic Church. Church leaders,
in fact, just proposed a worldwide central bank and global securities tax.
Defenders of the Church tell us this is an anomalous event. You think?"
"...overconfidence may have been part
of the problem. Perry and his team haven’t been in a close contest in more
than a decade. The last time most former staffers remember seeing Perry work
hard on the campaign trail was in 2002, when he was running against Democrat
Tony Sanchez. Back then he campaigned in one big market and two medium-sized
markets each day and attended fundraisers every other night. (These days he’s
doing one, maybe two, public events a week.) “They got soft,” says Paul Burka,
a longtime political columnist for the Texas Monthly. “A Democrat hasn’t won
statewide in Texas since 1994. Their opposition has been almost non-existent.
There was this aura of invincibility.”
The aura made Perry’s team complacent. Despite evidence that Perry has been
considering a run for higher office for more than a year – his last state
budget made a very political statement and he formed fundraising organizations
in Iowa and South Carolina a year ago – they entered the campaign unprepared.
Though Carney disputes this, several sources say they did little opposition
research on their own candidate–a staple of modern presidential
campaigns–assuming that he’d already been vetted by his six statewide wins.
After Perry’s first two weeks on the national stage when he aggressively
promoted his record of job creation, the campaign did little to promote his
achievements in Texas or provide a narrative for his candidacy. (They finally
returned to his jobs resume in the first television ads their running in Iowa
Instead, Perry allowed his opponents to define him. After several scrappy
debates, the only thing Republican voters knew about his health care record in
Texas was that he had mandated the HPV vaccine for teenage girls; all they
heard about his immigration record was Romney’s assertion in the last debate
that Texas has let more undocumented workers into the country than any other
state, and that Perry provided in-state college tuition to many of them.
Perry, who refused to debate or speak to newspaper editorial boards during his
2010 gubernatorial reelection, was clearly ill-prepared to defend himself. His
staff now says that he may not participate in future debates after Nov. 9."
"For those individuals who cannot
possibly fathom how natural medicines can trump the best man-made molecules,
skeptics must be confronted with evidence that some natural molecules inhibit
all three stages of cancer – initiation, growth and spread – something that no
existing anti-cancer drug can claim. The biological action of
synthetically-made anti-cancer drugs is too narrow to fully address all the
challenges posed by cancer."
Ridiculing Mr. Jobs for seeking
alternative therapies is uncalled for.
"Many patriotic immigration reformers
expressed skepticism over Lamar Smith’s willingness to make a deal with the
Chamber of Commerce to get his federal E-Verify bill. He did it by including a
preemption provision that would effectively nullify the local E-Verify laws in
Alabama, Georgia, Arizona etc. Apparently this was not enough: the House
Leadership is still blocking the bill. And the cheap labor lobby is demanding
still more legal immigration."
"The BIS has a very low profile, but
this belies its importance. Not only does it coordinate central banking
policies around the world, it is so important that BIS couriers, by
international law as we understand it, are not to be stopped or searched. This
alone shows the tremendous power the BIS wields, or rather the Anglosphere
power elite that set it up. And the money flows themselves tell a tale about
how the financial world really works. Of course, you have to read between the
We can see here that BIS movers-and-shakers are quite aware of how capital
flows are circulating around the world. They are ebbing in developed economies
and flowing toward the BRICs. This means that money shortages will inevitably
make the problems of Europe more severe, while additional currency in the
BRICs will aggravate price inflation problems.
So ... tougher times ahead. Unfortunately, you will not read about such money
flows (or the BIS itself) in the mainstream media generally and certainly from
a news standpoint. You are far more likely to be educated about Lady Gaga's
outfits than on the BIS in today's world.
And certainly the powers-that-be like it that way. They would prefer that
people are NOT educated about fiat money and central banks, even though it is
the world's ubiquitous modern system and a problematic one. Without commodity
backing, paper money merely ratchets around the world in search of the highest
return. It can be printed in ever larger quantities to maximize "profits" and
the BIS supervises this endless inflation.
For this reason, as well, the BIS often sends out defensive or warning press
releases to ensure that its leadership looks responsible and concerned about
the various distortive impacts of money printing. One such release (as part of
its annual report) was issued back in June 2011 and summarized by The
Australian. Here is part of the article:
Age of cheap money must end, warns Bank of International Settlements ...
Rising labour costs in emerging countries threaten to set off a global
inflationary spiral similar to the one triggered by escalating food prices in
the 1970s, the Bank for International Settlements warned today. "Against this
backdrop, central banks must remain highly alert to a build-up of inflationary
pressures," the bank said in its annual report.
Central banks should stay tough against price rises even if this approach
would seem to be incongruous with conventional estimates of slack in the
domestic economy and price trends, the bank said. "All in all, still we
continue to see that monetary policy is too accommodative," but "it doesn't
mean we call for raising rates in each country," BIS general manager Jaime
Caruana said in response to a journalist's question at a brief media
conference concluding the bank's annual general meeting ...
Though the situation is different from that in the 1970s, monetary
policymakers may confront challenges similar to that era of spiraling prices,
the BIS wrote ... The bank also cautioned advanced economies against
prolonging the loose monetary policy many deployed during the financial
crisis, saying this likely has been an important factor in recent "large
capital flows to emerging market economies."
Once again, we can see here how the BIS positions itself as a responsible
moderator. This is especially ironic as central banks are inflation PRODUCERS.
No central bank, no modern money inflation. The BIS and central banks in
general don't want people to realize that central banks are the source of the
inflation, not the cure."
"There have been reports that the
Tunisian revolution was actually a CIA-related operation related to securing
oil supplies for the US and furthering its strategic dominance in terms of the
larger "great game."
We believe such explanations are somewhat overwrought. The CIA does not call
every tune. Oil in fact is present everywhere on earth and need not be secured
by the West via revolution. The Tunisians evidently and obviously were not
well-disposed to their (former) iron-handed ruler. And yet ... revolutions can
be manipulated and often are. In fact, Tunisia's now-deposed president
President Zine al-Abedine Ben Ali was firmly anti-Muslim and thus the Tunisian
revolution seems to fit into a larger pattern of further Muslim-ifcation of
that part of the world.
Is it a deliberate pattern? We would argue it might be, and that it is one
that now serves the purposes of Western powers-that-be. The Anglosphere is
notoriously unsentimental when it comes to overthrowing allies in pursuit of
its large one-world objectives. Those who have ruled with America's backing
for decades may suddenly they are unsupported in their further prospects.
Where is the evidence? Again, we note the pattern. In the strife-torn West
African nation of Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire) the West is supporting Alassane
Ouattara, a former prime minister, banker and leader of the opposition over
incumbent president, Laurent Gbagbo. Ouattara is Muslim; Gbagbo is Christian.
The West advocates for the Muslim-linked faction over the Christian one.
Then there is the referendum in the Sudan, one of Africa's largest states and
most Northern ones. The referendum, being conducted on the auspices of the
United Nations, aims to split the country, creating a predominantly Muslim
Northern Sudan. According to CNN, President Omar al-Bashir has reportedly said
that if Southern Sudan votes in favor of separation, "sharia will become the
main source of Sudan's Constitution, Islam the state religion and Arabic the
official language." The West, under the auspices of the UN, is in the process
of creating a fundamentalist Muslim state. Finally, there is the sorry saga of
the War in Kosova in which the West backed Albanian Muslims over Serbian
All three of these examples might be termed "simplistic" in that there were
(and are) many complexities involved in these confrontations that have nothing
to do with religious affiliation. Nonetheless – inarguably – on three separate
occasions, Western powers-that-be have thrown their weight behind Islam.
There is more to support the idea that the Anglosphere is covertly supporting
resurgent Islam. The West has surely manipulated the price of oil to enrich
Muslim countries for decades. And in return, Saudi Arabia has first created
and then funded Wahhabism, a fierce fundamental strain of Islam that has found
fertile soil in the Afghan-Pakistan region and in North Africa. Thus, we seem
to see again that the West is funding the very enemies its leaders claim to be
Dubai and the Arab Emirates should be mentioned within this paradigm. These
Western-affiliated, Muslim countries have in our view been positioned to
provide a "middle ground" between Islam and the West. They represent the
fruition of an ongoing Hegelian dialectic – the model for a Westernized Islam.
Al Jazeera is funded out of another tiny, Western-centric country, Qatar, and
we have noted that initially Al Jazeera was staffed by BBC journos; Al Jazeera,
far from being a radical Islamic mouthpiece, is in a sense another
Western-controlled news outlet. You can see a previous article here:
Those in the West, even close mainstream observers of the ongoing "war on
terror," live with this cognitive dissonance without showing much
consciousness of it – which is strange itself. You would think those with
degrees and pedigrees in this area would ask themselves why the West is
supporting the world's leading promoters of militant Islam all the while
proclaiming undying resistance to "terrorists."
The Western power elite always utilizes the Hegelian dialectic – the creation
of two sides to an argument so that the resolution is resolved as much as
possible on elite terms. But while most observers of the elite believe the
dialectic applies to rhetoric, the facts-on-the-ground show us clearly that
the dialectic is applied to conflict as well. Thus, there is significant
evidence that Wall Street funded the "Red" faction of the Russian revolution
that led to the formation of the USSR and the USSR in turn helped fund the
creation of Communist China.
It is now well-acknowledged that Operation Gladio in Europe (a CIA black ops)
produced a slew of violent incidents and rising fear among Western middle
classes that the "Red Plague" was spreading. This was no doubt helpful in the
creation of the meme of a "united Europe" that would provide an antidote to
"If Herman Cain is elected President,
America’s soldiers are not going to be coming home from wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq anytime soon. To the contrary, they can expect more foreign
deployments than they are experiencing today under the Obama administration.
Asked his view of foreign policy, presidential candidate Herman Cain told
NBC’s Meet the Press host David Gregory that he’s most impressed with the
opinions of establishment neoconservatives, though he said he was unfamiliar
with the term “neoconservative”: “I’ve looked at the writings of people like
Ambassador [John] Bolton,” Cain said October 16. “I’ve looked at the writings
of Dr. Henry Kissinger and K.T. McFarland, someone I respect.” All three are
establishment neoconservatives and have been Council on Foreign Relations
members — internationalists of the first order — who are among the “experts”
most interested in expanding America’s foreign wars.
Asked about his views on the Iraq War and if he was familiar with the
neoconservative movement, Cain told Gregory, “I’m not familiar with the
neoconservative movement.... I don’t think the war in Iraq was a mistake,
because there were a lot of other reasons we needed to go to Iraq and there
have been a lot of benefits that have come out of Iraq. Now that being said, I
don’t agree with the President’s approach to draw down 40,000 troops and
basically leave that country open to attacks by Iran. Iran has already said
that they want to wait until America leaves.... I would want to leave American
troops there if that was what the commanders on the ground suggested, and I
believe that that’s what they are saying.”"
"If the Occupy Wall Street movement
does turn against the Jews, it certainly wouldn't be the first American
protest movement to do so. The Civil Rights movement (via Malcolm X) and the
anti-Vietnam War (ask Martin Peretz) movements both, in their ways, did so in
the end, despite Jewish participation at the outset in both. "
At the end of the interview, Luttwak
talks about the dynamics of the bin Laden take-out, i.e., the courier story is
not a "cover" story...
Do you anticipate violence this fall
between the Israelis and the Palestinians?
I don’t anticipate violence this fall. War leads to peace. Peace leads to war.
So, now logically we should have war. And the Iranians, of course, would love
to pay for one. But the moment there is an intifada, the Palestinian regiment
collapses and gangsters take over. So, the moment the violence escalates they
stop fighting and they start talking peace. The moment the talking appears to
be approaching an actual peace, they start an intifada.
"One final question. When I heard the
Bin Laden news and you look at the circumstances surrounding his place of
residence, and the length of his stay there, it seems clear that he was sold
to the U.S. by somebody inside the Pakistani security apparatus, no?
I don’t believe that at all.
You think that the CIA independently developed this information?
First of all, it was not the CIA because the CIA doesn’t run interrogations in
You believe the story about the courier?
I believe it and I believe it categorically. Look, the Pakistanis had been
sheltering Bin Laden. But in these matters, the only way to proceed is to
develop thoughts that are based only on uncontroversial facts. Any analysis of
the Bin Laden story tells you that there was active Pakistani complicity
simply because people cannot go to Abbottabad and live in a compound without
somebody asking questions. For one thing, Pakistan has this system where
foreign citizens have to obtain the residence permits and renew them, and
there are foreigners including Arabs living there, and they would be asked to
show their papers. Pakistani complicity is certain. That’s point one. Point
two: The guy uses couriers. Therefore, if you’re going to find him, you had to
find the courier. The courier story is not the cover story.
The proof of this is that if they got the information from some Pakistani guy,
if one of the protectors of Osama decided to sell out, they would have known
what was in the compound, and if they had known what was in the compound, they
would not have attacked it the way they did. The attack against the compound
reflected the central fact they did not know what they would find inside. The
only thing that they hoped to find was Osama Bin Laden, among other objects,
furniture, walls, people. Had a Pakistani provided the information, they would
have provided two pieces of information, not just one. One is that Osama Bin
Laden is there and two, a platoon is not there.
You understand the thing that keeps bothering me.
Now you are entering an area that is highly technical, and I’m not at liberty
to speak because I’m in this line of business myself so there are limits to
what I can tell you. But tell me what bothers you?
What bothers me is that you have a secret that was obviously known by more
than one person. Let’s say that only three people in the ISI knew that Bin
Laden was there.
The people who knew that he was in Abbottabad were a minimum number of some 12
people, and the reason is that you had to keep telling the police not to
enter, you had to communicate with the other parts of the Pakistani state. But
I repeat, but if American information had come from inside Pakistan, and there
was knowledge of what was in the compound, they would have not attacked the
compound in this way.
If 12 people know a secret, then there are also many people surrounding those
12 people who might also have access to some part of that information.
So, in other words, there are fragments of that secret.
With that many people knowing a big secret over that long a period of time,
something must have leaked.
I know the courier information would tell you that Osama Bin Laden is in that
space and nothing else. And the military operation that was mounted reflects
that fact. Whoever designed that military operation had the kind of
information that is consistent with the courier and is not consistent with any
If I am in the receipt of information about Bin Laden’s whereabouts from a
source in the ISI who wanted to submarine his boss, or gain the support of
America, or pay off his mistress, I might design an operation that would match
my cover story about the courier, who definitely existed, but might not have
led anyone back to Bin Laden’s house.
No, no, no. It’s a very technical thing. It has to do with how you attack a
target when you know that there are maximum of two people who will shoot at
you or three people who will shoot at you, neither of the three being trained
gunmen, versus how you design an attack on a target when you think there might
be 25 people shooting at you. That’s all. The official word is that there was
a courier, and I’m inclined to believe it. Because when somebody tells you how
something happened, operationally speaking, do not disbelieve it until you
have evidence that tells you that it’s wrong. Then you can pursue some other
theory. All the information I have is consistent with the courier story
because the courier story would tell you that there’s the bad guy in the space
but nothing else.
Why kill him?
They were under orders to kill him.
Wouldn’t Osama Bin Laden be a source of useful intelligence? Alternately, one
good reason to kill him is that you have a deal with the Pakistanis—“we’re
gonna get rid of this problem”—then you need to kill him, because otherwise he
might start talking about who protected him for the past 10 years.
There was no deal with the Pakistanis. There’s no institutional integrity.
Therefore you cannot make deals with the Pakistani system. They would betray
each other. There was no deal.
They killed Bin Laden simply because of the inconvenience of a trial?
They killed him because of the fact that if we captured Bin Laden, every
Jihadist in the world would have been duty-bound to kidnap any American
citizen anywhere and exchange him for Bin Laden."
"According to some U.S. intelligence
estimates, Shiite Iran is responsible for far more American deaths and
injuries in America’s two Middle East combat theaters than al-Qaida or other
Sunni factions. That means that American strategists, civilian and military,
no longer consider the U.S. military a deterrent to Iranian actions; rather,
the presence of American troops in theaters where the Iranians also operate
has effectively deterred the United States from taking action against Tehran.
U.S. involvement in the Middle East and Washington’s policy of not confronting
Iran about its openly aggressive behavior have created a situation in which
our troops are now effectively being held hostage, a situation that Iran
underlines with each new act of aggression and terror. Which is why U.S.
policymakers cannot recognize the pending withdrawal from Iraq—or what is
effectively the liberation of many thousands of American hostages—as an
opportunity to go after Iran. Instead, Washington will continue to wage
clandestine operations against Tehran—like killing Iranian nuclear scientists
and sabotaging Iranian centrifuges with a computer worm. None of those
operations will stop the Islamic Republic from getting the bomb—rather, that
secret war, presumably conducted in tandem with Israel, is meant only to deter
the Jewish state from attacking Iran in earnest.
If the only country able and willing to go after Iran’s nuclear program is
Israel, the only one who is capable of stopping the Israelis, Tehran realizes,
is the United States."
"There is no doubt that Gaddafi could
be a merciless foe who meted out inhumane punishments to those who opposed
him. But he also provided Libya with what was ultimately a high living
standard for the Middle East and Africa, and as dictators go he was, perhaps,
not so bad as certain other rulers that the US and NATO have backed with
The Libyan "war" was evidently waged for several reasons, and probably had to
do with oil and with ensuring that Gaddafi did not begin to use gold rather
than dollars as the main currency for Libyan oil. Additionally Gaddafi was
trying to set up an African Union that would use its own currency and oppose
the West on numerous economic and socio-political issues.
The biggest reason from our point of view may be that the West is secretly
working to set up an Islamic crescent of countries in the Middle East and
"Just yesterday, we posted a story
"NATO Preps for World War" that positioned China as a military enemy. But we
are past the point where we think that modern warfare has much to do with
underlying enmity. Modern wars in our view are projects mostly of the
Anglosphere elites and are mounted for purposes of control, population
reduction and other reasons that do not have much or anything to do with a
clash of civilizations.
Despite the overhang of potential military activity, China in its current
incarnation seems evidently and obviously a kind of controlled opposition – a
convenient grand backdrop on which any one of a number of perceptions may be
generated. For now, the ChiCom leaders seem to be working closely to support
Western memes. Its leaders have stated their intention to help bail out the EU.
And now we see the enthusiastic endorsement of one of the more pernicious
theme – global warming and the necessity for carbon sinks.
The current ChiCom society has been built along the lines of modern Western
socialism, complete with central banking and mercantilist multinationals. The
linkages to the controlling Western elites are likely fairly well hidden and
can only be discerned when China suddenly makes strange noises benefiting this
or that Western meme or agenda."
“Israel and its friends are nothing if
not pragmatic,” Rosen said. “There are no permanent friends and no permanent
"But Morgan says its exposure to
French banks is zero. Why the discrepancy? Morgan has probably taken out
insurance against its loans to European banks, as well as collateral from
them. So Morgan feels as if it’s not exposed.
But does anyone remember something spelled AIG? That was the giant insurance
firm that went bust when Wall Street began going under. Wall Street thought it
had insured its bets with AIG. Turned out, AIG couldn’t pay up.
Haven’t we been here before?
Republicans and Wall Street executives who continue to yell about Dodd-Frank
overkill are dead wrong. The fact no one seems to know Morgan’s exposure to

"The idea that a few bankers control a
large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York's
Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the
study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute
of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically
identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to
model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among
the world's transnational corporations (TNCs).
"Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it's conspiracy
theories or free-market," says James Glattfelder. "Our analysis is
Previous studies have found that a few TNCs own large chunks of the world's
economy, but they included only a limited number of companies and omitted
indirect ownerships, so could not say how this affected the global economy -
whether it made it more or less stable, for instance.
The Zurich team can. From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies
and investors worldwide, they pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share
ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies
controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company's
operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.
The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with
interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more
other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What's more,
although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318
appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world's
large blue chip and manufacturing firms - the "real" economy - representing a
further 60 per cent of global revenues.
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it
tracked back to a "super-entity" of 147 even more tightly knit companies - all
of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity - that
controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. "In effect, less
than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the
entire network," says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top
20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group."
"It was a payment instruction on order
of a foreign secret service written by hand giving the order to pay a certain
amount to a person who killed the top leader of a foreign country. And it was
not the only case. We received several such hand written letters coming from
foreign secret services giving the order to payout cash from secret accounts
to fund revolutions or for the killing of people. I can confirm what John
Perkins has written in his book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”. There
really exists just a system and Swiss banks are involved in such cases. It was
one of the top three Swiss banks at that time and it was the president of a
country in the third world. But I don’t want to give out to many details

"It is written that when the languages
of the tribes of the children of Shem, Ham and Japheth, son of Noah, were
divided in all the climates on the surface of the earth; when they had
occupied their areas and when each language, each people and tribe had moved
away into an unspecified region of a climate of the earth, as we described,
the people began to make war on each other, one against another. Each tribe
and each people chose a head of an army, who led their troops and led them
into battle, going at their head. It is told that once, when some of the
chiefs of the warriors and commanders of the troops returned victorious and
triumphing to their companions, their people and their tribe, the people took
them as their masters because of their victory and for their chiefs, renowned
and famous for their exploits, their wars and their success, they set up idols
bearing their names and resembling them, so that these idols recalled the
memory of those who had made conquests to their profit and had returned
victorious to them. A long time after this, people started to show veneration
towards them and to offer sacrifices to them, initially as a testimony of
veneration for them and to remember the victories which they had gained; then
when misfortunes occurred, when their enemies, wanting revenge, inflicted on
them all kinds of evils and wounds, they came to these idols, beseeching their
help. For this reason, in the times that followed, the worship and the
veneration of the idols were introduced by the living themselves of the
heroes; devils, according to what is written, spoke to the men from the
interior of these idols."
"...most of the noise we heard
concerning HIV wasn’t so much concerned with encouraging compassion for its
victims, but rather with politicizing their misery in order to agitate for
social change. To this end, it became necessary for radical organizations like
ACT UP to send out strident and often contradictory messages in an effort to
“educate”— which is to say, indoctrinate—Middle Americans inclined towards
more conservative sexual morays. “AIDS is not a gay disease,” the ACT UPers
would loudly insist, while simultaneously attacking those who feared the
possibility of transmission as latent “homophobes,” an implicit admission that
homosexual contact did indeed correlate with incidences of HIV-positivity. And
while widespread terror of contracting the virus was derided by activist-types
as a loathsome byproduct of the hoi palloi’s shameful “ignorance,” these same
activists weren’t above exploiting the common man’s supposedly unfounded fear
in an effort to promote “safe sex,” that is, contraception, another brave new
innovation of the post-1960s age which had always previously been regarded as
a low and disreputable practice.
Thus, the occasion of the rise of a particularly devastating sexually
transmitted disease, which if anything seemed like a pressing reason to
refrain from non-monogamous sexual relationships, became for many a rallying
cry for carrying forth the dictates of the Sexual Revolution, for
pathologizing “repression” and declaring any aversion to deviance to be
“hateful.” The prevalence of a virus largely transmitted through gay male sex
became a reason, not to implore people to avoid gay male sex, but rather to
insist that buggery be seen as a beautiful expression of love, in every way
aesthetically and spiritually on par with heterosexual intercourse.
But in endlessly flogging their ideological hobbyhorses, the AIDS-insistent
busybodies thoroughly overshot the mark. Back in ’86 or so, everyone seemed to
be projecting that HIV would go mainstream, that soon we’d all know someone
who’d be dying of it, that no discrimination would be made between heteros and
homos when it came to who came down with it. In 1987, Oprah Winfrey informed
her audience that one fifth of all heterosexuals would be dead from AIDS. Such
an outcome has not transpired, at least not in the Western world.
Now, a decade and a half later, we seldom even hear anymore about this disease
that was supposedly going to affect everybody’s lives in some mode or manner.
In fact, it’s fair to say that people nowadays more often fear the costly
ravages of a computer virus than the bodily depredations wrought by that pesky
HIV bug. Certainly, people still contract HIV, and there remains no known
cure, though medical treatments have improved through the years. But as Eric
Cartman found out in a recent “South Park” episode, AIDS just isn’t a sexy
illness anymore. The HIV-hype reached its zenith with the 1993 cinematic
sanctimony-fest Philadelphia, featuring Tom Hanks as a sweet, saintly ailing
poofter criminally wronged by a homophobic corporation; after that, the
flamers’ disease more or less flamed out. Since the turn of the millennium,
it’s pretty much been “AIDS Who?”"
Just as AIDS became a cause célèbre
because it disproportionately afflicted gay men, at a time when ...
"Why in the world would we be

that we’re borrowing it from?" asked Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla., left). "If they

for these purposes?"

"By 2020, Greece is expected to
decrease its debt level from a current 160 percent of gross domestic product
down to 120 percent. That's the level at which it is believed the country
would again be able to raise fresh capital on the markets.
Despite the deal on Greece, leaders did not succeed in reaching the
comprehensive package they had been seeking. They did, however, provide
fundamental approval to the three key elements they believe are necessary:
a debt haircut for Greece of at least 50 percent of the face value of its
the recapitalization of 91 system relevant European banks (the required core
capital requirement will now be increased from 4 to 9 percent)
leveraging the EFSF euro bailout backstop fund, increasing its potential
available capital from €440 billion to over a trillion euros. It will create a
firewall that in an emergency would also be capable of financing large
countries like Spain and Italy.
But details of the leveraging of the EFSF remain scant. The euro-zone finance
ministers have been tasked with reviewing both of the models for leveraging
that were discussed -- that of offering insurance or first loss guarantees,
and of creating a special investment vehicle. Merkel and Sarkozy assured that
the solution would increase the €440 billion rescue fund's firepower to over
€1 trillion. But so far that remains little more than a claim. For example, it
remains unclear how interested foreign governments will be in buying up bonds
from troubled euro-zone countries. On Thursday, Sarkozy is expected to conduct
his first sales discussion -- with Chinese President Hu Jintao."
"Merkel's apparent weaknesses have
served to her advantage in the crisis. In contrast to others, she doesn't plow
ahead like a bull in a china closet -- she goes about her work in a cautious
and considered manner. And whereas the public and the markets can sometimes
succumb to panic, Merkel has a tendency to decelerate.
Indeed, it isn't Merkel who should adjust to the pressures of the market -- it
is the other way around. The markets ought to take a cue from the primacy she
gives to objectivity. The best example yet of this was her decision to split
Sunday's summit into two parts. It did no damage and the markets reacted
It is a process which produces solutions which may not be ideal and they may
come late -- but they at least appear to be reasonably thought out and could
contribute to calming the markets.
Merkel has presented herself as a good European. At the same time, she has
neutralized two antagonists. She is now leading the competition with Nicolas
Sarkozy for leadership of Europe. Contrary to what the French initially
proposed, the EFSF backstop fund will not be given license to run up as much
debt as it sees fit. Instead the German model of leveraging the fund to
provide insurance on bonds has won out.
Meanwhile, back in Germany, Merkel has reduced the role of the opposition
parties in the euro rescue debate to that of extras. Be it the Social
Democrats or the Greens, they will merely rubber stamp whatever she hands to
"Geithner and Friedman interceded on
behalf of Goldman and Wall Street (Merrill received $6.2 billion, Societe
General - a whopping $16.5 billion) to deliver a stealth bailout, one that
wouldn't need Congressional approval, and even better wouldn't require the
counterparties to pay any of it back NOR would it require that they issue
shares, warrants or any other instrument to AIG (taxpayers) in return for more
than $32 billion in free money."
"Not only did Summers work tirelessly
during his years in the Clinton Administration to undermine regulatory and
prudential controls in our financial markets, but he joined Fed Chairman Alan
Greenspan and his political sponsor, former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin,
and public paragon Arthur Levitt, in smearing CFTC Chairman Brooksley Born so
as to make the world safe for OTC derivatives.
“The moratorium was a huge victory for Wall Street,” Robert Stowe England
writes in his new book, Black Box Casino. “And a big win for Rubin, Summers
and Greenspan,” though he rightly notes that Levitt later expressed regrets
over his actions. But not Larry Summers, a man for whom ideology has never
gotten in the way of the practical necessities at a given moment in time. He
rolls in his own mess, in political terms you understand, and then expects us
to believe that it smells so very sweet. The latest case in point is seen as
Summer prescribes solutions to the housing crisis.
In their book Reckless Endangerment, Gretchen Morgenson and Josh Rosner
describe in vivid detail how Larry Summers, Robert Zoellick and others bullied
critics and won and influenced friends for Fannie Mae, one of the key
Washington agencies that helped lead to the subprime debt crisis. Ed Demarco,
now head of the agency that supervises Fannie and Freddie Mac, wrote a report
in 1996 suggesting that the housing GSEs be privatized. But Summers bullied
Demarco and other staffers, eventually forcing them to rewrite the entire
document. The cost to the taxpayer of Summers’ intervention regarding the
housing agencies is over $150 billion and climbing. And this number will climb
dramatically after the 2012 election.
But perhaps one of the biggest indictments of Summers when it comes to his
contribution or lack thereof to economic public policy is also his last,
namely the advice to President Obama to do nothing about either the top-four
zombie banks or the housing GSEs. By allowing the GSEs and the cartel they
form with the largest four banks – JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and Bank
of America – in the secondary market for home loans to deny millions of middle
to lower income borrowers the opportunity to refinance, Summers has cost
millions of Americans livelihood and security. I wrote about this issue in
“Are the low US home mortgage rates for real?”
Summers deserves the censure of all Americans for his hideously bad advice to
President Barack Obama regarding the housing crisis. First Summers told Obama
not to restructure the largest zombie banks, the very same institutions that
today deny millions of Americans their contractual right to refinance their
Cassidy quotes Summers on Obama’s view of the big banks last year prior to his
flight from the White House: “In the same spirit that the president did not
want to take ownership of the banks, he has a healthy skepticism about schemes
involving large government action and an awareness of the possibilities of
Second, Summers told the POTUS that there was no need to address the fact that
tens of millions of American households are under water on their mortgages. As
Laurie Goodman of Amherst Securities has noted, there is a cost to doing
nothing. For Summers now to offer us advice on the mess he helped to create is
“This guy and his crew from Harvard have fought me on this for the last three
years when it comes to dealing with the home refinance issue,” notes one
banking industry official who has argued for a government response to
refinancing. “When we finally get the Obama administration to change their
mind on dealing with under water mortgages, Summers pops up pretending to lead
"We've said it from the beginning,
against the ignorant and misinformed current of status-quo talking heads and
wannabe financial experts, including Inside Job director Charles Ferguson and
over-hyped author Ellen Brown, allowing Lehman Brothers to fail was the only
thing Bernanke and Paulson ever got right.
The market spoke and the government didn't intervene. That is capitalism. And
not coincidentally we learned later that Lehman was an over-leveraged cesspool
of fraud and criminal malfeasance with a $600 billion crater in its balance
sheet, despite assurances from Dick Fuld that $20 billion from taxpayers would
have saved the company. Complete and utter nonsense. And there is little
reason to believe that Lehman's fraudulent financials were any different than
what we would have found at Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley,
Citigroup or Bank of America.
Each and every major investment bank was then, and to this day, remains
MASSIVELY insolvent. It's not even a close call - with 30:1 leverage on
inadequate capital, assets need only decline 4% in value to wipe out the
balance sheet, and assets have declined 30-40% on average. We are talking
about insolvency by orders of magnitude."
Moore is cluelessly deranged
regarding bailouts, the Federal Reserve and capitalism. The problem
"While the revised program seeks to
lower mortgage payments for underwater homeowners, the program does nothing to
address the core problem -- owing more than the home is worth. Though
borrowers may save hundreds of dollars a month in lower payments by
refinancing, they routinely owe tens of thousands of dollars more than their
homes are worth, even after receiving aid."
"My impression of Slovakia, in
comparison to the Czech Republic and Poland, its two neighbors, was
interesting. While the latter two countries seem to be buzzing with activity
and infused with a sense of optimism and positive inertia, one had the
unsettling feeling in Slovakia that something just wasn't working right. I do
not think it is an accident that of the three, Slovakia is the only one to
have adopted the Euro. I also do not consider it accidental that the façade of
the democratic Eurozone took a body blow there over the last few days, as the
Slovakians at first appeared to behave sanely by rejecting the latest,
billion-Euro bailout on Tuesday—but then, through the kind of back-door
arm-twisting and shenanigans that pass for democracy in our upside-down world,
now appear to have lost their marbles and have joined their wealthier
neighbors in flushing more of their wealth down the collective toilet."
"Later today, the Catholic conserva-sphere
will, no doubt, issue forth blogs and articles about how the Vatican doesn’t
really mean what everyone thinks it means, or that global government would be
enacted in accordance with the Church’s concept of Subsidiarity, which

But let’s just take the Vatican at its word. It sounds like it wants a New
World Order to me!"
"Why do an interview with Lyndon
LaRouche when he has been damned (often) with such faint praise, and when his
political tactics can be called "hard ball" – to put it mildly? Well ... he is
also an interesting person intellectually. No matter what else can be said of
LaRouche, his analysis of the problems and internal contradictions of the
current globalist mercantilist central banking system has been broadly
justified by the events that have taken place early in the 21st century.
Meanwhile, his world view, while often extreme, seems to us in some areas
broadly confirmed by such books as Carroll Quigley's highly documented Tragedy
and Hope, which is a history of the power-elite that LaRouche so despises."
"MK: In your columns on Salon, you
have been a relentless upholder of constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties
regardless of what political party is in power. This has put you at odds with
both the Bush and Obama administrations. To many progressives, your dissection
of the current White House's growing constraint on civil liberties is
shocking. To what do you attribute the Obama administration's actions to go
further than the Bush administration did in curbing civil liberties?
GG: It's difficult to assess motives, but one major difference between Bush
and Obama is that Bush at least had one major political party pretending to
find his abuses objectionable. By contrast, Obama has very little opposition:
Republicans are being consistent by cheering for limitless executive power and
civil liberties abuses carried out in the name of fighting Terrorism, but now,
Democrats are either indifferent to those actions or outright supportive
because they're now being carried out by their own party's leader. Bush's
radicalism was seen as controversial right-wing dogma, but Obama has
transformed it into bipartisan consensus, and thus strengthened it.
Part of what is happening is likely political: Democrats have often been
accused of being soft on Terror, and if Obama were to abandon Bush's policies
- the ones he promised to reverse when campaigning - he'd likely be
politically vulnerable if there were another terrorist attack on US soil.
Embracing the Bush/Cheney template is a means of immunizing himself from those
Finally, people convinced of their own Goodness often view restraints on their
own power as unnecessary. After all, he's a Good Progressive and
well-intentioned - unlike those evil Republicans - and we should therefore
trust him to do things in total secrecy, without oversight and accountability.
I think that extremely flattering self-image is part of what motivates these
actions as well."
"... the video to Alejandro is very
complex and symbolic, and lends itself to multiple interpretations, depending
on the viewer’s knowledge and point of view. There are, however, parts of the
video in which the symbolism is clear and concise, leaving little doubt
regarding the message being communicated. During the video, Gaga goes through
a very profound metamorphosis, rejecting Christian faith by desecrating its
symbols and embracing a new type of spirituality.
Is Gaga’s transformation a representation of the transformation that is
currently happening on a worldwide scale? Are members of the elite, who were
thought to be part of “regular” religions, revealing their true, Luciferian
selves to the public? Will the New World Order leave traditional religions in
the dust to embrace a new type of spirituality?
Whatever the case may be, pivotal videos such as this one disseminate into the
collective unconscious a specific set of symbols and values that will become,
in time, “part of our culture.” In order to achieve this, charismatic figures
that are admired by the public are used make those messages cool and trendy.
Music fans have been subjected to an intense creative drought in the past
years, which caused them to be desperate for a new, eccentric and iconic
presence. So Lady Gaga comes into the picture, slightly distances herself from
the painfully formulaic music acts and is heralded as the new pop princess.
She also brings with her all of the Illuminati agenda and flashes in her fans
faces the symbols of their own oppression. I’m sure many fans have a gut
feeling that something is wrong with her act, but still can’t stop listening
to her. They must tell themselves, “well, there is nothing else to listen to.”
And that’s what media monopolies are all about."

Herb Romerstein and I held a briefing in May 0f 2008 in Washington, D.C.
releasing two reports, “Communism in Chicago and the Obama Connection,” and
“Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection.” Then, in August of 2008, I
released the 600-page FBI file on Frank Marshall Davis. The response from the
media included Dana Milbank of The Washington Post making fun of us and Matt
Drudge of the Drudge Report refusing to run paid advertising on the
Obama-Davis connection. The liberal and conservative media had their heads in
the sand. They couldn’t come to grips with the unprecedented prospect of a
possible agent of influence for the international Marxist movement occupying
the Oval Office.
Herb Romerstein is a veteran congressional researcher and patriot who was
ridiculed by Milbank as a “relic” of the anti-communist period. The author of
numerous books on Soviet espionage operations, Romerstein will be honored at a
Washington, D.C. conference on October 21 that is open to the press and the
public. Kengor, who dedicates his book to Romerstein, describing him as a
human Cold War archive, will be speaking at the same event. One of the other

Stanley Kurtz says, after his book is out and two years into the Obama
presidency, “I was nervous about the socialism charge myself.” The highlight
of his new book is that he documents that Obama attended a series of socialist
scholar conferences when he went to college. But Obama admitted to that in his
book, Dreams from My Father (Page 122), published back in 1995. He wrote about
going to “socialist conferences.” The issue in Dreams is why Obama covered up
his relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, referring to him only as “Frank.”
It is Frank who created the mindset in Obama to want to attend socialist
conferences. This was the issue that could and should have been addressed by
conservatives during the campaign. But too many of them were silent or nervous
about what they might find. Some believed the propaganda that Obama was a
Paul Kengor says that conservatives were reluctant to face up to the truth
about Obama because they didn’t want to be accused of “McCarthyism” for
raising the issue of his communist connections. The 600-page Kengor book
includes the excerpts of the Davis FBI files that others have shied away from.
Kengor, a professor at Grove City College, is not afraid to tackle the
terrible truth. We need more like him in academia.
The difference between calling Obama an anti-colonialist, a socialist, or a
Marxist mentored by a top operative of the CPUSA is that one category should

"Perhaps the most shocking revelation
is how deep the Soviet Communist network has embedded itself into American
political and educational culture. A quick review of Obama’s political
“career” shows a track that was inexplicably greased, from his tuition
payments at Columbia and Harvard, to a position at UOC Law School, to his
eventual electoral “victories” at the Illinois State Senate, United States
Senate, and U.S. Presidency.
Barack Obama’s parents ostensibly met in a Russian language class. This could
have been where his mother was recruited by Barack Obama Sr, who could have
already been working undercover for the KGB.
In order to brainwash the child from an early age, they surrounded him with
diehard Communists and fellow KGB agents, such as Frank Marshall Davis, a
known Communist Party USA official. The Soviet KGB directly funded the CPUSA.
This would fit directly into what the Russian Communist said about ‘Barack’,
boasting “He has been raised to be an atheist and a communist.”

Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered
once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive
under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options.
Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for,
these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the
Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its
protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal
Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and
far too many more to list.
Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are
opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for
the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered. It is
not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed
since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we
castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers"
who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for
they exist in these present times too.
Events are already rushing toward
that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully
wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around
both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.
Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the
more informed observer may become apparent.
little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and
erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these
United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which
entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming
a major focus in worship, and more.
We ask you,
if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed
(of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or
"Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT?
North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that
what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering
into. And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something
very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its
jurisdiction.... And, we believe this also holds true for many who
are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....
altering the Life and Teachings of
to accommodate the disease of Political
Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church)
breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by - the ancient
which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure &
refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the
other Pillars of the Church, the
but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of
Islam by praying with them and other
such as 'Pentecostalism,'
any so-called church with "Community
in their nomenclature
and others who by their
false and misleading dogmas and doctrines
are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for
exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which
non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being
skilled spiritual father can help you!
cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be
harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is
to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.
And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to
you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy
Spirit! Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy
Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work
because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and
snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the
Holy Spirit. Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the
Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept
him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.

never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must
also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her
venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."
