The Following URGENT PRAYER ALERT came through earlier today:


Urgent Alert: Deportation Hearing Happening Now for Mosab Yousef—Who Left Hamas and became a Christian and Sought Asylum in the US

Aimee Herd (June 30, 2010)

Deportation to Palestine is a death sentence for this young Christian man, who was a valuable advocate for Israel.

BCN wanted to alert our readers of this hearing, happening now in California. Mosab Yousef, who wrote the book Son of Hamas, is trying not to be sent back to the Palestinians where his life would be in grave danger.

After leaving Hamas when he became a Christian Believer, he spent time helping Israel fight against the terrorist organization his own father co-founded. Now, the current administration in Washington sees Yousef as a “threat” and is acting to deport him; that hearing going on today.

As you read the information from Mosab’s website below, please be praying for God’s favor and protection on this very brave individual who is a defender of the faith, and a defender of Israel.

From Mosab Yousef’s website:

Mosab lives in San Diego, California and is seeking asylum in the United States. He is a Palestinian man who was an agent for Israel’s Mossad for about seven years, after spending ten years in an Israeli prison. Mosab’s father is a co-founder of Hamas in Palestine, which is designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano believes Mosab Yousef is a national security threat, and wants to send him back to Palestine. According to Yousef, writing on his publisher’s blog, he is now Homeland Security File# A 088 271 051. He is scheduled to appear before Immigration Judge Rico J. Bartolomei at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Court in San Diego today, June 30th, 2010.

Time is of the essence if we want to make a difference for Mosab.

Mosab met a tourist in Israel, was given a Bible, studied both the Bible and the Koran side-by-side, and eventually became a Christian. He is the author of the book Son of Hamas, and is often known as “Son of Hamas.”
Yousef has been out of the service of Israel’s intelligence agency, Shin Bet, also known as Israel Security Agency (ISA), for about four years. His Shin Bet “handler” vouches for the work he did to protect Israel.

According to “The Handler,” known as “Captain Loai” and “G:”

For almost seven years, the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef – one of the founders of Hamas and one of the Islamist organization’s leaders in the West Bank—supplied G. with accurate information on developments involving the top brass of Hamas, plans for suicide-bomber attacks and the whereabouts of wanted individuals. Together, G. and Yousef prevented dozens of terrorist attacks and thwarted plans to assassinate leading Israeli figures, such as President Shimon Peres and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

Yousef’s code name in Israeli Intelligence was The Green Prince. When he arrived in America, he went to Homeland Security, identified himself and asked for political asylum. Over a period of months, Mosab documented his story with Homeland Security. The result is the deportation hearing on June 30, 2010.

Source: Mosab Yousef’s website

According to AP reports, an immigration judge today ruled that Mr. Yousef is eligible for asylum if he passes a routine background check. Though the government attorney Kerri Calcador gave no explanation for the government’s change of heart, I believe it was in answer to everyone’s prayers!

Brian P. Hale, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said, “During a hearing this morning, DHS attorneys recommended to the court that Mr. Yousef be granted the requested relief.”

Mr. Yousef is tied to Hamas through his relationship with his father, Sheik Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of the organization. The elder Yousef is now in an Israeli prison and has denounced his son for his conversion to Christianity and his admission that he spied for Israel’s domestic intelligence service, the Shin Bet.

Round one is over, and let’s pray that this decision stands, and that there are no further problems.

Thank God… so far so good!

Let’s just keep praying for this brother, not only for his citizenship; but also for his safety.

Shalom,

Skip Barland

U.S. grants asylum to born-again ‘Son of Hamas’
Homeland Security wanted to deport ex-Muslim who spied for Israel

By Art Moore

An immigration judge in San Diego ruled today the son of a Hamas founder who converted to Christianity and spied for Israel will be granted political asylum after the Department of Homeland Security dropped its objections.

As WND reported, Mosab Hassan Yousef had been denied his February 2009 request for asylum because the DHS interpreted his work as a counterterror agent with Israel’s Shin Bet security agency as engagement in terrorist activity, making him a threat to U.S. security.

Judge Rico Bartolomei ruled Yousef will be granted political asylum Aug. 26 after he is fingerprinted and passes a routine background check. Yousef says he wants to become a U.S. citizen.

From the world of radical Islam to the world of the radically transformed. Order your copy of “Son of Hamas” from the WND Superstore now!

Yousef told WND and other reporters in a conference call after the hearing that he was surprised when DHS lawyers informed the judge there were “developments” in the case and they were removing their objections to his application for asylum.

“I think the judge was surprised, and everybody there was surprised,” Yousef said.

The government lawyers, however, offered no explanation for their change of mind. But Yousef acknowledged the support of members of Congress, the Israeli Knesset, Christian and Jewish groups, and individuals who contacted DHS officials on his behalf.

Yousef, who publicized the deportation threat in a blog post last month, said the U.S. government’s belief he posed a security threat as a terrorist was based on a complete misinterpretation of passages of his best-selling book, “Son of Hamas”.

He told reporters today’s decision, for him, was “a small but very important step in a long journey.”

“The biggest victory will be when we start to see the new generation of the Middle East changing,” he said. “When we start to see our world a safer place. When we’ll be able to change the ideology that supports fanatics, fundamentalists and terrorists.”

Earlier this week, nearly two dozen Congress members appealed to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in a letter, arguing Yousef would be in “grave danger” if he were sent back to the Middle East.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey wrote in a letter released by Yousef’s attorney that deporting Yousef would deter others from serving as spies.

“It is not an exaggeration to say that such an action would set us back years in the war on terrorism,” Woolsey wrote. “Mosab’s deportation would be such an inhumane act it would constitute a blight on American history.”

As WND reported, Yousef worked alongside his father, Sheik Hassan Yousef, in the West Bank city of al-Ghaniya near Ramallah while secretly embracing Christian faith and serving with Shin Bet. Yousef was recruited by the agency in 1996 at the age of 18 while at an Israeli detention facility.

Since publicly declaring his faith in August 2008, he has been condemned by an al-Qaida-affiliated group and disowned by his family.

Yousef has explained his job as a Shin Bet agent required him to pose as a terrorist and participate in “terrorist meetings” with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, his father and other Hamas leaders.

“I passed on to the Shin Bet all the information I gathered during those meetings and saved the lives of many people – including many Americans,” he explained in his May blog post.

Yousef said at the time that the FBI told Homeland Security he was not a threat and advised the agency to drop the case.

“But Homeland Security shut its eyes and stopped up its ears and told the FBI, ‘You have nothing to do with this. It is our job,'” Yousef said.

The agency’s performance, he asserted in his Internet posting last month, “should worry the American people.”

“If Homeland Security cannot understand a simple story like mine, how can they be trusted with bigger issues?” he asked. “They seem to know only how to blindly follow rules and procedures. But to work intelligence, you have to be very creative. You have to accept exceptions. You need to be able to think beyond facts and circumstances.”

Today, Yousef said in a statement that his “faith in America is restored.”

“I am very grateful to the Department of Homeland Security for carefully reviewing my case and choosing to withdraw it’s opposition to granting me asylum,” he said.

Asked by a reporter whether the upcoming Independence Day holiday will be significant for him now that he has a pathway to citizenship, Yousef replied, “I became American when I started to fight for liberty and freedom.

“At that moment, I shared the common ground that gathers every free man and woman in this country,” he said. “I celebrated always the Fourth of July. I think independence is a great thing, but what I think is greater is the liberty that is in the heart of every individual in this country. I think this is a great country; it’s a great nation, and I will be proud to be called American.”

Meet Gerard Le Feuvre

The man and his music


From Haven Today: Gerard Le Feuvre

Gerard Le Feuvre was born to become a Lord, as his father before him had been on the Channel Island of Jersey. As one of the privileged few, he had no desire to know his heavenly Father until one day, walking in a forest in Finland, he heard a voice speak to him and say, “Come to me.”

Without a doubt he knew . . . it was Jesus.

Already a world-class cellist, Gerard Le Feuvre found that his music had suddenly changed. Instead of technical brilliance, his music now moved listeners to tears . . . and he only had one explanation – now he was playing for his Lord, THE Lord of Lords. Soon after, he founded The Kings Chamber Orchestra in London which today plays for the glory of God.

Listen to the Haven Today Program, an interview with Gerard and more of his music: http://www.haventoday.org/gerard-le-feuvre-come-to-jesus-p-2247.html

This is some amazing footage that I thought you would enjoy…

Lightning strikes three of the tallest buildings in Chicago at the same time!

“Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth. He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.”

(Job 37:2-2)


It was one of those magical moments


Chicago’s Craig Shimala caught it from his west side balcony – three bolts of lightning striking the John Hancock Center, Willis Tower, and Trump International Hotel and Tower instantaneously. Here’s his description…

For the third time in the last 6 days, another line of nasty storms rolled through Chicago on Wednesday evening. I love coming home and being able to watch and capture nature’s beauty from my balcony. The footage was shot on a Canon 7D.


I love the lightening and the thunderstorms that they have back east. Living out here in the west, we don’t get so much of that, especially here in Southern California, where I live… and I kind of miss it.

For me, seeing these pictures bring back all sorts of wonderful nostalgic memories; because as a boy, I spent a lot of time in the Windy City of Chicago!

Even though I was raised in Detroit Michigan, my place of birth was in Chicago, and both of my parents were also from Chicago; and so at least at one time, most of my family was there as well, with cousins, Aunts, Uncles, and my grandparents.

In fact, my grandfather on my mother’s side, worked on the New York Central Railroad, as a steward in the diner car; and so consequently I have many memories as a boy of spending lots of time on the train, traveling back and forth, as well as all the memories of my many summer vacations and holidays that I spent there!

Chicago for me will always have a special place in my heart!

Not that you asked, but I thought I’d tell you anyway!

Have a blessed day,

Skip Barland



HOW DO YOU NOT LOVE A GOD LIKE THAT?


O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will!

What Jesus purchased for us at Calvary’s cross though it comes to us free of charge, it did not come without a cost; it’s just that we could never pay the price!

It cost the life of God’s only begotten Son; and it cost Jesus His All!


How do you not love a God like that?

Micah 7:18 (The Message)

18-20Where is the god who can compare with you—
wiping the slate clean of guilt,
Turning a blind eye, a deaf ear,
to the past sins of your purged and precious people?
You don’t nurse your anger and don’t stay angry long,
for mercy is your specialty. That’s what you love most.
And compassion is on its way to us.
You’ll stamp out our wrongdoing.
You’ll sink our sins
to the bottom of the ocean.
You’ll stay true to your word to Father Jacob
and continue the compassion you showed Grandfather Abraham—
Everything you promised our ancestors
from a long time ago.

So how do you not love a God like this?

The Bible gives us the record, in the Gospel of John – Chapter one (in the Skip paraphrase version) that: “In the beginning, before time and space began (was created and set in forth in motion by God), that there was the Logos (the Living Word), and the Word was God.

It goes on to say that, “He was in the beginning with God. That all things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

In Him (Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men; and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not comprehend it.

He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and yet the world did not know Him, nor did it recognize Him.

And though He came unto His own people (the Jews), even His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to as many as believed on His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

So then the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth!”

This is the way I understand the way the Trinity works: It is God the Father who originates ALL the thoughts, purposes, and plans of the God Head, He’s the BOSS; then God the Father speaks those thoughts plans and purposes with the Word of His mouth; and God the Son (Jesus) is that Word (the Living Word), who then goes out to implement the thoughts, plans and purposes of the Father; and then it is God the Holy Spirit, who is the POWER source, who brings it all together, and makes it happen!

Such as it is, this is the account given in Scripture for where we ALL came from; and as we read further the story even gets more interesting; for the Bible says that even the angels of heaven bend over in amazement and wonderment at what God is doing with the Sons and Daughters of Adam, which to them is a great mystery?

Not only that, but the Bible also tells us (in Romans 8:19): “That the whole of creation awaits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed!

When we stop to consider all the trouble and bother that God has had to go through; and the enormous cost of our salvation to the God Head; and all the pain and suffering that Christ had to go through, the question naturally arises… why would God go through all of that?

Well the answer is because God loves you; for even as it says in John – Chapter 3, verse 16:For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life!

Truly, when you understand it, the Bible is actually God’s love letter to us, where we are told all that He has had to do in order to have his lost children reconciled back unto His eternal family; not only that, but the Bible is also God’s road map, left behind for us, in order to show us the way home.

So then I ask the question again: How do we not love a God like this?

And what should be our response to such love?

Well the Bible says,Let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah Jesus, who being in the form of God, and being God incarnate Himself, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God; but He made Himself of no reputation, taking on the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of man.

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him (Jesus) and has given Him the name which is above EVERY name, that at the name of JESUS every knee must bow, of those in heaven, and of those in the earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of God the Father!(Phil 2:5-11) Amen

I believe it was St. Augustine who said it the best, when he said for us: To love God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your strength, and do as you please!

Christianity is not a religion, as many would call it, and many practice it!

To say that and to leave it there is a cop out, because Christianity is so much more.

Jesus did not come to this earth and suffer all that He suffered just so we could practice religion!

Religion attempts to earn God’s acceptance and approval through human effort and by our works; but the Bible says that Salvation only comes by Grace, as a free gift!

No, religion most often tends to cheapen all that God has done, by making some believe they can earn it; but the truth is nothing we can do will ever add to, or take away from what Christ has already done for us on the Cross!

So as you are collating all of this, and possibly asking yourself what side do I fall on, when it comes to this Man, Christ Jesus… please consider this last point that I will leave you with… and that is, though this gift of salvation comes to us free of charge, by GRACE, meaning we don’t deserve it; and even thought it comes totally by way of unmerited favor; nevertheless, there is however a cost involved for us; and therein lies a paradox, because we can only lay hold of this New Life, by dying to self, and our living for God!

Going to church and having a label doesn’t get anyone into heaven! Selah

For more information about how all of this works, and how to appropriate this awesome gift of salvation, and this New Life for yourself, here is a website that might be helpful, and will answer some of you questions: http://needhim.org/… beyond that, consult the Operations Manual (Book of Information Before Leaving Earth—the BIBLE).

Restoring Our Constitutional Republic… The Government vs. the People!

One Nation Under God

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


Restoring Our Constitutional Republic

The Government vs. the People!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero 42B.C

Spiritually our nation is at a very definite crossroads, regarding our forefather’s covenant with God, and we have been here for several years… but only in recent years has it come to a head.

We are not unlike the state that the Nation of Israel found itself in numerous times in their long history; where because of their obstinate disobedience they were often facing the correcting Hand of God… for as the Bible says, “God chastens them whom He loves.”

Morally, ethically, and also historically, our nation is facing the worst crisis to its existence since our Independence from Great Britain; as our nation’s leaders long ago have lost their moral compass, and have long since forgotten the God of Heaven; and have long ago disregarded both His laws and His Word, the Holy Bible.

Surely in their effort to gain respectability, they will make reference to Him often and are very religious; but that’s only when it suites their purpose, and that’s mostly when they are running for office.

Case in point, we have a man sitting in the White House today, Barack Hussein Obama, who claims himself to be a Christian; but also says for him to make a moral judgment as to whether it is right or wrong to murder over 50 million babies is above his pay grade; who also says that marriage between people of the same sex is okay, and should be made legal; who also says that homosexuality is a normal and natural lifestyle and should be incorporated at all levels of our society; who also says that Muslims and atheists, as long as they are good and moral people will make it into heaven; and who also has been recorded mocking the Bible and also the Sermon on the Mound.

Not to mention all the controversy that has surrounded this man, since the beginning of his political career; and his relationships with socialists, avowed Communists, and anti-American groups who are actively seeking the permanent overthrow and end to our Constitutional Republic… and yet despite all of this, the American people have championed this man, and they voted him into office!

Now I ask you, what is wrong with this picture?

I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that we have enemies of the state at the very helm of our government; or the fact that the general public has drifted so far afield, away from the God of the Bible, themselves, that they cannot today discern anymore the difference between good and evil; or right and wrong?

How far we have fallen from whence we started as a nation, based on our long history and legacy as a nation who once honored and cherished the God of the Bible, and were blessed beyond any nation in history because of that fact!

The United States has become the melting pot of the world, as people have sought to come here from all over, in order that they might bathe in the light of our freedom and prosper under our liberty; and these people have been free to bring their gods, to worship as they please, and follow their religious practices, something quite often they could not do in the country they came from; and yet still they will not Honor the God of our forefathers, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who is the One responsible for the very blessings they came here to seek.

Sure they want our liberty, and they want to enjoy the prosperity and blessings that have been afforded to all American people, because of our forefather’s covenant with God, but they do not want our God; and yet to make matters even worse, to add insult to injury, it is obvious that most of our citizens today are now in that very same camp, because our present day leadership in Washington DC is only a reflection of the moral condition of the people who elected them to office.

Let us pray for our nations; let us pray that the efforts to restore our Constitutional Republic succeed; and that God will either change the the hearts of our present leadership in Washington DC, or that He removed them from office; pray for a Spiritual Awakening and for Revival in our land; and pray the hearts of the people of our land, to be turned back to God; that we may truly once again be One Nation Under God… So let it be Lord, in Jesus name!

Shalom,

Skip Barland

America’s Godly Heritage

David Barton

Revised & Condensed by Annette Nay

The Founding Fathers and Christianity

Our founding fathers were brought up in schools in which their primers taught bible scriptures, morals and its teachings. They were taught the Ten Commandments and were thoroughly versed on each one and their meaning.

As adults, the founding fathers continued to read and learn from the bible. Many of them were evangelical preachers. Many of them started the American Tract Society and wrote many of their tracts. They started the American Bible Society, The Philadelphia Bible Society, and the Christian Constitutional Society, all of which still exist today. It was no wonder then that they used the bible to frame the Constitution.

Patrick Henry – “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ!”

From 1690 to 1900 American’s youth learned their ABC’s with a bible scripture associated with each letter. First graders talked about the Ten Commandments, in class, and learned what they meant.

The founding fathers wanted government and Christianity to be in an insoluble bond.

John Quincy Adams stated, “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this… it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”

John Jay the Chief Justice and the most influential writer of the constitution stated, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. ” We need to elect Christians to office if we want to have righteous men making good laws to rule our country.

In summation from George Washington’s farewell speech, speaking to the citizens of The United States, he touched on these points: Do not let anyone claim to be a true American if they attempt to remove religion from American politics. If they do they are not true Americans.

Our American government has lasted over 200 years. Having a government, in any form, lasting this long is unheard of. For example, in the last 200 years France has had seven forms of government and Italy has had forty-eight.

Our Constitution and Its Basis

Where did the founding fathers get their ideas for our constitution that has caused it to last so long? Some would have you believe that it was because of the Age of Enlightenment in Britain which brought to light ideas such as:

  • Government should be formed to protect people’s natural rights.
  • Government should have limited power.
  • The type of government should be accepted by all citizens.
  • Government has an obligation to those it governs.
  • Man is born free.
  • Controls by a freely formed government are good.
  • When government is by the consent of the governed the people, they retain their rights.
  • People have the right to challenged old ways of thinking.
  • They questioned divine-right of rule.

They taught that people should be able to gain material well-being, social justice, and happiness in this life – not just the next (Ellis, Esler, Beers, & Hart, 1999).

These ideas spread to American and found place in Thomas Paine’s pamphlet called Common Sense. Some would have you think that it was Paine’s pamphlet which swayed the founding father’s minds to their incorporation in the Constitution (Ellis, Esler, Beers, & Hart, 1999). The fact is that there were many heated debates on the constitutional legislature’s floor over these ideas. Such ideas were not espoused by the founding fathers until they could find a precedence in the bible for them. Then, it was only by unanimously consent spurred on by spiritual confirmation, that they accept these ideas into the constitution (Barton, 1999).

The Bible was important to our founding fathers. Out of fifteen thousand samples of their writings that University of Houston professors collected, they found 3154 of those had a significant impact on our constitution. Of those writings, they found that the bible was quoted sixteen times more than any other source. 94% of the quotes were based on the bible, 34% came directly out of the bible, and 60% used the bible to arrive at their conclusion.

The House and the Senate would discuss what the bible said and use its ideas to make law. The idea of three branches of government originated with John Locke in his article called Two Treaties of Government. The founding fathers substantiated the idea for separation of powers from Jeremiah 17:32. They found mention of the three branches of government in Isaiah 33:22. They found the idea of tax exemption for churches in Ezra 7:24. These men were students of the Bible and brought their expertise into the legislature to help them to know that to do.

Court Rulings that lead to Religion Leaving Government

The Way It Used to Be

1892 – Trinity vs. the US: The Supreme Court stated, “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It’s impossible that it should be otherwise; and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”  This case gave 87 historical precedences to prove this statement. It further stated that there were more, but 78 should suffice to prove the government must be based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.

1844 – Vidal vs. Girard’s: “The purest principles of morality are to be taught. Where are they found? Whosoever searches for them must go to the source for which the Christian man derives his faith… the bible.”  A Philadelphia school’s premise was that they could teach morality with out teaching the bible. The court ruled that they couldn’t have a school that didn’t teach the bible’s morality, as it was the source of morality.

1811 – People vs. Ruggles: “Whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends manifestly to the dissolution of civil government.” In this case a man became profane about Jesus Christ and the bible both written and spoken. The courts said it was blasphemy and the man was fined $500.00 and jailed for 3 months. The court said if you’ve attacked Jesus Christ you have attacked Christianity. If you attack Christianity, you have attacked the foundation of the US. Therefore, it is an attack on the US.

How Amoral Laws Came to Being

The founding fathers never wanted separation of church and state, yet 67% of US citizens today believe that that very idea is contained in the constitution, even though those words never appear in the constitution.

The Constitution of the United States’ first amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Pre-drafts of this statement clarifies the founding fathers constitutional statement. There were twelve variations, they all mirrored the sentiments found in this one, “Congress will pass no laws making one denomination of Christians higher than another denomination.”

Their intent was that they did not want in America what they had in Great Britain where one denomination was running the nation. They wanted God’s principles, but did not want one designated church running the nation.

1796 – Funckle vs Winemiller – The Danbury Baptists who wanted a state church designated. The courts stated: “In our form of government the Christian religion is the established religion and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed upon the same equal footing.”

1802 – Thomas Jefferson addressed those Danbury Baptist. He said that the first amendment has erected a wall between church and state, but that wall is a one directional wall. It keeps the government from running the church and Christian principles will always stay in government. The First National Church never happened and Jefferson’s writing was put away until 1853. Today, we only hear half of this statement, that is: the separation of church and state.

A small number of people petitioned to separate Christian principles from government. Studies were done to see if it could be done. The findings of the House Judiciary committee were announced March 27, 1854. They said that if the people, during the Revolution, or had they any suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity that revolution would have been strangled in its cradle. At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged, not any one sect.

The Founders of the Constitution were Christians and they expected it would be so for their descendents. They stated, “The great vital and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrine and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

1947 – Everson vs. the Board of Education – Only nineteen words of Jefferson’s speech were used, those being, “The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state.” That wall must be kept high and impregnable.” It was because these words were taken out of context that the Founding father’s intent was reversed. Jefferson meant, not state from church, but church from state.

Dr. William James –the Father of Modern Psychology influenced the court. He wanted church out of state. Dr. James stated, “There is nothing so absurd but if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it.” The courts began used this tactic through the years.

1958 – Bear vs. Colmore – One of the judges got tired of hearing the statement, “separation of church and state.” He said, “If this court doesn’t stop talking about separation of church and state, someone will think it is part of the constitution.” The court continued to talk about it.

June 25, 1962 – Engle vs. Vitale – This was the first time there was a separation of religious principles from public education. The courts rules that there should not be prayers in school. It was the first time we had a separation of church and state. It was the first time that NO precedence (where previous legal cases were cited) or historical incidents were quoted.

1962-65 – The courts removed church from state through rulings on these cases:

1- Engle vs. Vital – Removal of prayer from school. The prayer before the court only mentioned God once. The Constitution mentions God four times. Does this make it unconstitutional?

2- Murray vs. Curlett – Removal of bible reading in school. Bible study used to be required to graduate from High School.

3- June 17, 1965 –Abington vs. Schempp – Removal of religious instruction from school. The courts stated, “If portions of the New Testament were read without explanation, they could be, and have been psychologically harmful to the child.”

In this case the courts said that only 3% of the nation professed no belief in religion or God. That prayer was consistent with 97% of the nation, but the courts ruled for the minority. Now, the philosophy of the 3% rules the 97%.

Our courts used to use biblical guidelines to rule on the areas of the citizens, families, schools, and the nation. Not anymore! Before 1962, the courts said, “We only allow divorce for six reasons. They are the six reasons God allows as written in the bible. God made the family (Adam’s and Noah’s) and so we have to use God’s precepts/rules to govern the family.” After 1965 the courts said we were not to do so any more, because it causes psychological damage to children. George Washington stated, “Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religions principle.”

1965 – Reid vs. Vanhovan – It is unconstitutional for a student to pray aloud in school.

1967 – Decab vs. Dispain – The courts took a four-line nursery rhyme used in pre-kindergarten and ruled it unconstitutional. The courts said, “The rhyme is unconstitutional since it might cause someone to think of God.”

1980 – Stone vs. Graham – The Ten Commandments were posted in a school’s hall bulletin board. The court ruled: “If the posted copies of the Ten commandments are to have any effect at all it will be induce the school children to read, meditate upon them, and perhaps to venerate and obey the commandment; this is not a permissible objective.”

When the courts say something is unconstitutional, what they are saying is that this thing is something our founding fathers would have been opposed to and would not have allowed it! The court’s findings do not reflect this.

James Madison, the Chief Architect of the Constitution, said, “We have stated the whole future of American civilization not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

Our Country’s Downfall

Since 1963, when prayer was taken out of school, unwed birth rates of 15-19 year-olds doubled. Pregnancies for girls 10-14 went up 553% since prayer was disallowed in school. (The separation of church and state.)

Divorce rates from 1963 to 1983 were up 117%. For fifteen years prior 1963, divorce had been declining.

Since 1963, single families were up 140%, single families with children with children were up 160%, and unmarried couples living together went up 353%.

From 1965, there was a sharp incline of gonorrhea in students in ages 15-19. It incline became since the removal of religious principles from school. Student STD’s went up 228%.

When a people throw away their values, they reap the consequences Some of those consequences are crime, divorce, STD’s, unwed mothers, and unmarried couples living together. There are more!

SAT scores approximate average was 970 points from 1952 to 1963. From 1963 to 1980 scores declined for eighteen consecutive years to drop to a low average of 890 points in 1980.

In 1974-75 the sharp decline in SAT scores slowed with the advent of private religious schools, which allowed religion in the curriculum. During this time, there were 32 thousand U.S. schools, which accounted for 8.5 million students.

Some say that the better scores of these students were because private schools had more money available for a better education for these students. This statement was investigated. It was found that private schools had, on average, $110.00 per student, whereas public schools had $370.52 per student.

SAT scores showed that students from the Christian private schools, on average, got 100 points higher, than the Non-Christian schooled students. That put the Christian schooled students back on the par where students were prior to 1963 and the separation of church and state. It was as if no change had occurred. Whereas public schooled student scores continued to declined!

In 1988 – the number of Academic High Achievers were as follows :

60.8 were from public schools

39.2 were from private schools – This group was 3 times larger than those from the public schools. Remember too, that private religious schools had 1/3 less money per person and used the same curriculum as the public schools, except the private schools added religion.

Violent crimes went up 544% since religious principles were removed from schools in 1963. Thomas Jefferson said that religion is the friend to government because it teaches morals of the heart. This means we are not dealing with murder, instead we deal with the religious morals which say do not hate. When we eliminate hate there is no murder. The commandment to not lust, stops adultery or rape.

Our Citizen’s need Internal Values

John Adams stated that there was no government big enough, to make you do what’s right. If you don’t do what’s right out of your heart, the gun has already been fired; the damage has already been done. He further stated, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is whole inadequate to the government of any other.”

Our people need internal constraints governed by God to keep our constitution working well. The greater number of our people are not and as a result, the constitution is not working!

Our country is now number one in:

  • Violent crime
  • Teen pregnancy
  • Illegal drug use
  • Divorce
  • Abortion
  • Illiteracy (in all the industrial world) – In 1997, seven hundred thousand students graduated from high school, who couldn’t read their diplomas.

Jeremiah 6:16 says to go back to the old paths if you want things to be back the way it should be. Many state constitutions require people, who hold office, to believe in God, the scriptures, and understand them.

Nations are accountable to God. The founding fathers said, “As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be punished in this. By an inevitable chain of cause and effect, providence punishes national sins by national calamities.” When a nation leaves God, God deals with them immediately. Hence, moral decay brings violent crimes, teen pregnancies, divorce, abortions, and etc. When wicked men rule, the nation suffers.

Ben Franklin and the Constitutional Convention stated, “We need God to be our friend not our enemy. We need Him to be our allay not our adversary. We need to make sure we keep God’s concurring aid. If a sparrow cannot fall without God’s notice, how can our nation rise without His aid?” He further called for regular daily prayer to keep Him close to us.

Thomas Jefferson, upon leaving the office of president, said, “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot not sleep forever.”

We Need Good People in High Places

1774 – Ben Franklin stated, “Introduce into public affairs the principles of Christianity and it will change the face of the world.”

Charles Finnay said, ” The church must take right ground in regard to politics. Politics are part of religion in a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God. He will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.”

If God’s people do not make it into office God’s principles do not make it into office. That is why Christians must be in office. Our government has been taken over by ungodly men. God-fearing Christians must take it back. We must get involved! Do something where you can affect people’s principles.

Proverbs 18:1 “A man who isolates himself seeks his own desires; he rages against all wise judgment.”

The separation of church and state allows Christians to be a light to the world, but only in the confines of the church. We know that the Lord wants us to be a light unto the government too.

We have lost our heritage. We must get Christianity back into government, our schools, and in our society!

Take a look at the face of EVIL in today’s Islamic world…

Pictured here are Islamic children who are in training in a Taliban school for suicide bombers!


Taliban Buying Children for Use as Homicide Bombers

We don’t make this up: children train as homicide bombers at S. Waziristan camp.

Pakistan’s top Taliban leader, Baitullah Mehsud, is buying children as young as 7 to serve as suicide bombers in the growing spate of attacks against Pakistani, Afghan and U.S. targets, U.S. Defense Department and Pakistani officials say.

A Pakistani official, who spoke on the condition that he not be named because of the sensitive nature of the topic, said the going price for child bombers was $7,000 to $14,000 – huge sums in Pakistan, where per-capita income is about $2,600 a year.

“[Mehsud] has turned suicide bombing into a production output, not unlike [the way] Toyota outputs cars,” a U.S. Defense Department official told reporters recently. He spoke on the condition that he not be named because of ongoing intelligence efforts to catch Mehsud, a prime target for a U.S. and Pakistani anti-Taliban campaign.

An apparent U.S. effort to kill Mehsud last week failed. On Sunday, the Pakistani government offered a reward of about $615,300 for information leading to the capture of Mehsud, dead or alive. The U.S. State Department has offered a bounty of $5 million for Mehsud, who is thought to be hiding in the tribal areas near the Afghan border.

Suicide bombings have become frequent in Pakistan in the past year, including high-profile attacks on hotels frequented by Westerners, as well as on Pakistani police and military installations. There has also been a spate of such attacks directed at U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan.

The U.S. official said the price depends on how quickly the bomber is needed and how close the child is expected to get to the target.

“[Mehsud] produces these suicide bombers, which are sold or bartered, which can be used by [Afghan Taliban leader Mullah] Omar’s Taliban or … other groups,” the U.S. official said.

In some cases, he said, the children are kidnapped and then sold to Mehsud.

Using child suicide bombers “is the grim reality of the Taliban Frankenstein that now threatens to overwhelm the Pakistani state,” said Bruce Riedel, a Brookings Institution scholar who chaired a review of Pakistan-Afghanistan strategy for President Obama.

Efforts to reach a spokesman for Mehsud were not successful.

The use of children in war is not unusual in Afghanistan or the tribal regions of Pakistan. During the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, many pre-adolescent boys became mujahedeen or freedom fighters.

There is a different cultural perspective here about the age at which a boy becomes a man, said Sher, a former Afghan freedom fighter who asked to be identified only by his first name to protect himself against Taliban retribution.

“Fighting is not the issue,” Sher, who took up arms against the Russians at age 13, told The Washington Times by phone.

“What is unusual is making these young fighters into suicide bombers,” he said. “That was not common in Afghanistan, not even in the past. These children are brainwashed to believe things that are not even true. It is a crime against God.”

In other conflicts, such as that between Israel and the Palestinians, suicide bombers are generally older, at least in their late teens or early 20s.

Suicide attacks mounted by Mehsud have killed prominent officials and politicians, including former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, and hundreds of civilians. The attacks have begun to shift sentiment among Pakistanis against the Taliban. The government has mounted an offensive to clear militants from areas close to the capital, Islamabad, although Pakistani authorities have failed to catch local Taliban leaders.

Pakistani officials have said their next target is the rugged region along the Afghan border where al Qaeda and the Taliban fled after U.S.-led forces toppled the Afghan Taliban government in Kabul in 2001.

Last week, Mehsud narrowly escaped a U.S. drone attack that killed approximately 80 people who were attending a funeral in South Waziristan in Pakistan’s tribal region. U.S. officials were watching the funeral by video feed from the drone, which flew high above the scene, concealed by clouds. The drone strike was the closest the U.S. had come to killing Mehsud in the past year, U.S. officials said.

Pakistani officials told The Times that Taliban commander Qari Hussain, who was a close aide to Mehsud, was killed in the attack.

Hussein was one of the main trainers and recruiters of suicide bombers, a Pakistani government official said.

“He was a very important figure to Mehsud,” said the official, who asked to remain anonymous because of the nature of his work. “However, Mehsud escaped the attack. Believe me, there will be no tears for Mehsud in Pakistan when he is killed.”

The Taliban is a formidable enemy to the Pakistani people and government, Mr. Riedel said.

He said the Pakistani government’s current military strategy against Mehsud is promising, but only time will tell whether it will succeed.

A second U.S. Defense Department official with expertise regarding the Taliban told reporters that al Qaeda and other Pakistani militant groups created by the Pakistani government to fight rival India have helped Mehsud stage suicide attacks.

The official, who also asked not to be named because of the nature of his work, said there had been a “convergence” of militants based in the tribal areas “supplemented, financed, probably trained, inculcated, by al Qaeda elements” and also “Punjab-based Pakistani terrorist groups.”

“It’s the relationship between the three elements that is producing effective suicide bombers and sustaining a suicide-bomb campaign inside Pakistan,” the official said.

Apparently, pouring water on someone’s face for a while is a vile and inhuman torture perpetrated by the sadistic US military on poor Muslim terror suspects. But where are the indignant cries of the developed world’s media and humanitarian communities when faced with the disgusting, depraved tactics and practices of those Muslim terrorists such as those described in the story above?

Other than the Washington Times (a courageous publication that does report what really goes on in the world), this story is unlikely to find its way into the mainstream media due to their cowardly self-censorship of anything that might present Islam in a bad light.

Their silent denial, cultural relativism and moral equivalence stinks.

Another American Hero… 88-yr-old veteran from D-Day is honored 66 yrs late!

88-year-old veteran Bob Bearden finally honored for his part in D-Day 66 years late…


Definition of a Hero according to former Sgt. Bearden:

“A combat soldier who is being shot at, who doesn’t run!”

Sergeant Bob Bearden was a squad leader of a mortar squad, H Company, 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment, which was attached to the 82nd Airborne Division in World War II and made its first combat jump in Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944.

The 507th had a somewhat different experience than the other Allied airborne units in the Normandy invasion. The 507th flew from airbases further north in England than any of the other parachute regiments participating in D-Day. As a result, they arrived over Normandy two hours later than other airborne units, a fact which abolished the element of surprise on which airborne units depend, and gave the well-entrenched Germans ample time to prepare for their arrival.

Massive anti-aircraft fire and dense cloud banks encountered over the Normandy coast caused the 507th to have the worst drop of any of the airborne units participating in Normandy. Most sticks completely missed their drop zones and ended up stranded as individuals or in small groups in totally unknown territory. In addition, their drop zone and surrounding low-lying marshes had been flooded by the Germans, who manipulated locks to make the Merderet River overflow its banks, causing many of the heavily overloaded 507 troopers to drown before they got out of their chutes.

Bob Bearden was luckier than most of his fellow 507 troopers, in that he was able to assemble two of the other members of his mortar squad, and find his H Company Commander, Captain Taylor, shortly after his drop. “Taylor’s group,” however, consisting of about 40 to 50 paratroopers from various units, has never been written about, although they made up one of four important fragmented groups of troopers in the 507 area who had been misdropped, and struggled to rejoin each other, while disrupting the enemy and attempting to overcome severely challenging obstacles in an unknown terrain.

The first action of the group was to take the small town of Fresville, which they held for several hours at the same time the 505 PIR was liberating Ste. Mere Eglise. When the Germans returned in force in Fresville with tanks on the afternoon of D-Day, Taylor and his men had to abandon the town, and sought to recross the flooded Merderet River in the attempt to join their regimental commander, Col. Millett, who had assembled approximately 200 men, but was entirely surrounded by heavily armed Germans.

The story of their struggles and ultimate success in reaching “Millett’s Group” has never been told. Bob Bearden was the first to break into Millett’s area, in a stupendously brave action which left 20 Germans dead in his wake, and paved the way for the rest of Taylor’s group to join their regimental commander. The story of Millett’s surrender is an important piece of the Normandy puzzle, but again, it has never been told in print or on film.

Bearden was a privileged participant in the activities on D+2 in Millett’s group, and the actions they took when ordered by General Gavin to join yet another 507th fragmentary group in “Timme’s orchard” on the other side of La Fière Causeway.  The column of nearly 400 men left Millet’s area on D+3, but fatigue, snipers, the blackness of night, and enemy attack caused the column to fragment.

Colonel Millet, at the head of the column, never made it to Timme’s orchard. He was captured by the Germans with several of his men, but his story has never been published. Bob Bearden was one of the men captured with Millett, who was probably the highest-ranking U.S. paratrooper the Germans captured in Normandy. Millett’s men were out of ammunition and overwhelmingly outnumbered. Bearden was lying just a few feet from his Commander, hidden in a hedgerow, when the order to surrender was given.

Bob Bearden, like the rest of the men with whom he was captured, became a Prisoner of War. He first spent time in a make-shift camp in Alençon, France (Lower Normandy), before being moved into Poland via Stalag XIIA (Limburg, Germany, where POWs were processed and received Red Cross recognition), Stalag IVB (Muhlburg, Germany, a British-run POW camp), and finally Stalag IIIC (Kustrin, Germany (Poland), a camp for American NCOs just on the other side of the Oder River). Bearden remained in IIIC until the Russians “liberated” the camp on their drive to Berlin in late December 1945.

Bob Bearden’s story is both representative and very unique. The 507th, unlike the 505th and the 504th, and most other regiments which participated in D-Day, never had a chance to fight as a regiment. Although they contributed valiantly to the success of the Normandy campaign, and most especially to the epic battle at La Fière Bridge (which S.L.A. Marshall called “probably the bloodiest small arms battle” in World War II), members of the regiment fought piecemeal, or in small mixed groups composed of several different units, often and led by commanders they had never trained with, and did not, in fact, know.  Although just over 2,000 507th troopers dropped on D-Day, only 700 left France when the regiment returned to England a month later, at the end of the Normandy campaign.

Until recently, the 507 was known as the “forgotten regiment.” Much interest in the regiment, however, is not afoot: scholarly works, a regimental history, a documentary, and a number of individual memoirs and other works have recently been released, or are now in the making, as are major permanent museum exhibits dedicated to the regiment’s history and accomplishments. The story of the 507, including the many valiant actions by its individual members, as they fought to rejoin the regiment or battled with other groups, nevertheless remains one of the true “scoops” and untold stories left in the area of World War II airborne history.

How ironic that in the face of such hypocrisy and two-faced betrayal on the part of so many of our elected officials both today and in the past, among those who no longer honor nor value our Constitutional Republic; and have long ago betrayed their country by betraying their oath to preserve, honor and defend our U.S. Constitution; by contrast to such self serving hypocrisy, every now and again we are reminded of what a true hero is.

It most certainly is NOT of those who seek to wallow in and bathe themselves in the spotlight of public attention; but it is those young men and women who are even today in harm’s way, fighting for their country; and some even dying for their country; all of whom fulfill Robert Bearden’s definition of what it means to be a Hero, as someone who doesn’t run in the face of fire!

May God bless them all… and let’s do always remember to hold them up in our prayers.

GULF DISASTER: HORRIBLE ACCIDENT… OR DELIBERATE ACT?

Now more charges, more allegations, and more evidence surfaces regarding this Gulf Oil Disaster!

This video I sent out last week talks about what may have caused the disaster:


The following Article (below) was forwarded to me by a friend, whose name I will keep anonymous, who actually works in the oil industry; and once again there are some serious allegations being charged against certain people, whose names we already have heard too much about; and others among the Washington DC insiders, good ole boy club… and none of this news is good!

Once again, while the news and most of our citizens are focusing on the cleanup efforts, the charges remain that all of this was intentional.

The Article below just connects the dots, by following the money, showing where and to who the connecting lines go; and all of this speaks to the corruption that is now surfacing regarding this whole incident.

It also points to the corruption that has existed among certain people in our government and this Globalist Banker’s Oligarchy that controls them all, that has actually existed and has been going on for years!

It is just the closer we get to the end, with all the current exposure on these crooks, among the Bankers and our politicians, the pressure on them is increasing to accelerate things, before they are totally exposed.

I have no doubt but that very possibly the betrayal that was mentioned by Kim Clement, in his prophecy earlier this year, that there would be a betrayal that would take place in this White House; it may very well be that Obama will be hung out to dry, by his handlers, and is left with the blame; which would be nothing but another ploy by the real crooks to cover their tracks and get the attention off of themselves; because just as it is with their father, the Devil, they nor him can stand the light of day!!!

All of this again points to our need to do some serious housecleaning among our government officials, and some serious praying for God’s intervention and help; that He forgive us for our sin of ignoring His laws and for drifting so far off center from our covenant with Him.

Shalom,

Skip Barland

GULF DISASTER – HORRIBLE ACCIDENT; OR DELIBERATE ACT?
Posted By: SCRIBE
Date: Sunday, 20-Jun-2010 18:27:42

It would appear that despite the tragic horrors and unimagined destruction now taking place in the Gulf of Mexico, there is a silver lining for a select lucky few. But, is it just Luck working here; is it all just a coincidence? Or is something more maybe going on?

Just days prior to the Gulf oil drilling operation and ensuing environmental catastrophe, Barack Obama suddenly does a 180 and gives his approval to resume offshore oil drilling. How odd and out of character that is: in February of 2009 President Obama reversed a decision by the outgoing Bush Administration to re-open U.S. coastal waters to oil and gas drilling; he had campaigned against traditional energy sources in favor of so-called “sustainable” alternatives such as wind, solar, etc; and he admitted in January of 2008 that it was his plan to use a Cap and Trade system to cause energy prices to “skyrocket” in order to force people to transition to “green” technologies.

Now, Obama is using the gulf disaster as an excuse to not only ban offshore drilling, but also to demand passage of his “cap and trade” energy bill. A bill, by the way, that was finally considered “dead and going nowhere” thanks to the hard work of everyone who helped to expose the “global warming” scam!

But there’s more. We have numerous “coincidental” financial and business transactions that took place in the days, weeks, and months prior to the rig explosion. Here are just a few:

Goldman Sachs placed shorts on TransOcean stock (owner of the failed Deepwater Horizon rig) just days before the explosions rocked the rig in the Gulf of Mexico, and sent TransOcean stocks plunging. But thanks to their lucky move, Goldman Sachs didn’t suffer a loss.

Not only did Goldman Sachs short shares of TransOcean, they also ditched 4,680,822 shares of BP stock worth $250 million (44% of their BP holdings) before the disaster, as well.

Wow, what luck: to get rid of substantial holdings in 2 companies right before they suffer huge losses. But it’s just a coincidence, right?

Well, if that weren’t enough of a “coincidence,” how about this: chief executive of BP, Tony Hayward, also sold 223,288 shares of stock (worth over $2 million) in his own company on March 17th, just a few weeks before the BP Gulf mess.

By doing so he avoided losing more than $614,449 when BP’s share price plunged after the oil spill began. Again, what luck!

Are there any ties between President Obama and Goldman Sachs?

Well, while it would have been against Federal Law for Goldman Sachs (the company) to have contributed to the Obama campaign, that didn’t stop Goldman Sachs employees from contributing over $739,521 to the Obama campaign, making Goldman Sachs employees the largest contributor.

Today the Obama Administration is full of former Goldman Sachs employees. Coincidence?

And what about Obama and BP?

During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant, and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.

Are there any ties between Goldman Sachs and BP?

Peter Sutherland is the chairman of Goldman Sachs International. He also served as chairman of BP right up until last year. He is currently a director for both BP and Goldman Sachs.

My question is, what did these people know that the rest of us didn’t?

How is it that stock in BP and Transocean suddenly became so unattractive to those closest to the disaster? Ah, the coincidences! But wait, there’s more.

Halliburton (ties to Dick Cheney) was in the process of acquiring Boots & Coots, a company well known for putting out some of the world’s largest oil and gas fires, just eleven days prior to the explosion.

Services they provide include “deepwater application and well inspections, as well as blowout prevention and control counsel or assistance.” And now their expertise is being put to use in the Gulf; they are one of two primary companies designing relief-well strategies for the BP blowout.

What luck! The company famous for profiting from no-bid government contracts in war zones; will now collect for themselves yet another “windfall” profit from the BP disaster.

Halliburton isn’t the only company that stands to make a killing off the crisis. TransOcean took out a $560 million insurance policy on the Deepwater Horizon rig; an amount well above the rig’s value.

After paying out $200 million to the survivors and the families of the deceased, TransOcean will have still have a tidy sum of $270 million in profit left over from the disaster.

Internal documents from BP, which Congress now has as they conduct their investigation, have shown that there were sufficient warnings as the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig had serious problems.

These problems included the well casing and the blowout preventer. The internal documents reveal that BP noted in March after encountering several problems on the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig that they were struggling with a loss of “well control.”

Furthermore, the internal documents illustrate that BP had concerns as far back as 11 months prior to March regarding the well casing and the blowout preventer.

Although rig workers warned against continuing to drill and continuing to drill violated company policies, the rig continued to operate after gaining approval from BP colleagues.

BP made a series of decisions aimed at saving money that heightened the risk of a catastrophic blowout, with a BP engineer calling the Deepwater Horizon platform “a nightmare well” in an e-mail issued less than a week before the explosion.

The blowout preventer was damaged in a previously unreported accident in late March 2010.

The American Bureau of Shipping last inspected the rig’s failed blowout preventer in 2005.

According to Transocean, workers had been performing standard routines and had no indication of any problems prior to the explosion.

Preliminary findings from BP’s internal investigation released by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on May 25 indicated several serious warning signs in the hours just prior to the explosion.

Equipment readings indicated gas bubbling into the well, which could signal an impending blowout. The heavy drilling mud in the pipes initially held down the gas of the leaking well.

A BP official onboard the rig directed the crew to replace the drilling mud, which is used to keep the well’s pressure down, with lighter seawater even though the rig’s chief driller protested.

According to a number of rig workers, it was understood that workers could get fired for raising safety concerns that might delay drilling.

That the crisis in the Gulf might have been planned and executed with the intention of profiting from it, while also pushing an environmental control agenda, might not be all that far-fetched.

It also could explain the pathetic federal response to the disaster (which continues).

It surely couldn’t be that the government wasn’t prepared, because just three weeks prior to the real disaster, the U.S. Coast Guard conducted operations in the Gulf, simulating a major oil spill and practicing the federal response to it.

The question is, why has the Obama Administration refused every offer of help?

What the American people don’t know is that well over a dozen different countries have offered to help clean the oil sludge from the Gulf.

The Dutch government called Obama and offered to loan BP ships outfitted with oil-skimming booms, and a plan to quickly build sand barriers to protect the marshlands.

Numerous private sector solutions have been offered. One example offered was from Dr. Henry Crichton, the world’s foremost oil blowout specialist, who after Gulf War I developed the blowout engineering for 800 or more wells in Kuwait, and provided quick relatively inexpensive solutions to either recover the oil with the Crichlow connector from the pipe a mile down or to “Kill the Spill” completely.

Yet, for reasons unknown, the Obama Administration has turned them all down.

Obama has a crisis on his hands, and as Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel so aptly stated to the media in February 2009, “you never let a crisis go to waste.” It appears they are following that advice.

What to do when you hurt… and how to deal with the problems of life!

Listen up folks; this is the way you deal with life, and life’s problems!

Listen to what Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mound…

(Scriptures are from the Message Bible):

3You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

4 You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

5 You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

6 You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

7 You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

8You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

9 You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

10 You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

11-12 Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.” (Matthew 5:3-11)

Jesus also said:

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11)

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” (John 16:24)

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Below there is another very good devotional message by David Wilkerson; this one is on the subject of what to do when you hurt.

Before I begin with my message, let me say just one thing right off the top; and that is if life and also the Bible teaches anything, it is that most of the people are wrong most of the time!

What does that mean?

It means that our being successful at life, and being on God’s team has nothing at all to do with being friends with the world, and going with the flow of the world, or doing what most of your friends, or peer group are doing… and yet that is what most do!

The Bible is VERY clear on this point, in fact it is crystal clear on this subject, and it says unequivocally that we are to enter through the “Narrow Gate,” and it is narrow because few there are who will take it; for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to death and destruction, meaning eternal separation from God (Matthew 7:13).

This is very important because much of the world, meaning most of your friends and most of the people you encounter everyday, if we understand what this verse of Scripture is saying correctly, it is saying that most of them are on their way to hell… and believe me you do not want to be in that group!

Not only that, but the way you will end up in that group is by going with the flow, and being average and ordinary… being ‘Politically Correct!’

Being a Christian on the other hands means you are going against the flow of what the world calls average and normal, and by their standards you are abnormal and weird if you are a follower of Christ; and James 4:4 will tell you that by your being friends with the world, that makes you an enemy of God! So are you understanding the words that I am speaking to you… you most certainly DO NOT want to go with the crowd!

Now with that said, let me move on to my next point, on how the Bible presents us with many many paradoxes, and I believe the reason for that is because God is wanting to point out the fact that truly OUR ways are not His; for God says:

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isa 55:8-11)

Our mission in life as the Bible sets forth, is first to be Born-again, meaning that we receive by faith the forgiveness of our sins; and are reconciled back into God’s family through the Gospel message of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom of Heaven!

That will first necessitate our repenting, which means to literally change the way we think.

In other words God is wanting to completely rewrite our core programming that has been corrupted by the world; and He will rewrite that programming with His own… by the Holy Spirit.

However, for that to happen we have to first be willing to humble ourselves and be teachable; and that humility will first be experienced from  your friends, who will not at all accept or understand what you are doing!

In fact, on that point… have you ever noticed how much people are like a bucket of crabs?

By that I mean, if you have ever seen a bucket of crabs, what you will find is that every time one tries to crawl out, the others will immediately hook them back in.

Well your friends will be exactly like that. They will also try and hook you back in!

So to start with, to be a follower of Christ means doing something quite different from what you have been doing, and what most of your friends are doing; it means being different… and it will humble you to be different, and to take the ridicule from your friends and the teasing for being different.

Being a Christian first means that we have to be willing to deny our self; meaning we let go of this idea of living our life as we see fit; and we begin to pursue an entirely new life in Christ; where no longer are we the masters of our destiny, and are seeking after our way, our ambitions, and wants and desires; but we instead are now bond servants of the Most High God… and a bond servant is someone who willingly relinquishes his or her freedom and will in order to follow and serve another.

Now in case there is still any doubt about what is being said here, let me make it a little clearer by quoting it directly from the Master:

Matthew 16:24-27

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”

In other words, and this is another one of those paradoxes… you can only live by dying!

Not only that but the very things you have been conditioned to rely upon, in the world, since your birth, such as your feelings and your understanding and reasoning, ALL of these things you are now being asked to deny, and to now order your life after God’s Word, and faith in God’s Word; which means you are now to guide everything you do, and hang your entire life and all of your circumstances, trials, and problems on the promises of God’s Word!

It means that you must learn to put on the mind of Christ and pursue His ways and His means of doing things… and now are forsaking your ways and that of the world!

Well some of you, and I used to be in this group myself, are saying I’m a member of such and such a church and I have been baptized; I’ve already had my First Communion, or whatever liturgical requirements are put forth in your denomination, in order to be a member; but yet according to what Jesus just said, ALL of that won’t even get you past the front door of heaven, if you haven’t first completely died to yourself, and made Jesus Christ Lord and Master of your life!

Folks this paradox is absolutely crucial that we ALL understand!

After all Christ did not come to earth, suffer all that He suffered, die a cruel death on the cross, all so we and I can attend church on Sunday and on holidays, or whatever; just so we could live our lives, and pursue our interests, and live as we please… that was NOT what Calvary was all about!!!

Does that not make sense to you? I mean are you getting my drift here, or not?

I ask this because I know sure as shooting that there are many people out there, and I know because I talk to them, and some of you right now, who are reading this message, are actually thinking that way; and are living your life hoping that just because of whatever label you have over your church, and the fact you are/or once were a member of that church, or denomination, you are right with God; and are of the mistaken opinion that having that label will get you in to heaven!  Well, I’m here to tell you now that it will not!!! And mind you, that’s not according to my word, or my opinion; but that’s according to what Jesus has said, as you have just read.

For those of you who are currently on that broad road, trying to enter through that Wide Gate; if you would like to make your reservations for eternity, and accept Jesus as your personal Saviour and Lord, here is a website that will give you a road map: http://needhim.org/.

The next thing is, having been born-again, we now enter into the “Boot-camp” of the Holy Spirit; and we begin our training for eternity!

By that I mean God will use our circumstances, our trials and tribulations, and our challenges in life to teach us how to live by faith, and how to circumnavigate our problems, and cast mountains (spiritual obstacles) that Satan has placed in our path into the sea.

Now it doesn’t at all matter what those mountains are, whether we are talking about physical mountains, financial, emotional, or whatever… every problem, every demon, and ever situation must bow at the name of Jesus Christ!

Before that happens however, and this is MOST important, we have to be filled with the Person and also the power of the Holy Spirit, which is God’s POWER, which He provides that allows us to tap into His supernatural powers, and to see and experience signs, wonders and miracles in our life, and more importantly in our ministry to reach this lost world for Christ!

Without that power we are virtually helpless to have any kind of effectiveness at any level, not only in our personal life; but also in any kind of ministry we may be involved with.

That failure alone, to be filled with God’s power and guided and directed 24/7 through the ministry of the Holy Spirit will be a major handicapped in our trying to reach this world for Christ!

Even as Jesus has said… Without me you can do NOTHING!

And that is exactly why Jesus instructed ALL of His disciples to not do anything in the way of ministry, before they had been endued with POWER from on high, which power came on the Day of Pentecost!

Now the last Paradox that I’d to point out in this message is how Jesus said that by our having problems, and that by our learning to manage our way through our problems; and our gaining victory through faith in what Christ has already done, when we pray in His Name; Jesus said that by our having this experience, that our JOY would be complete!

In other words our Joy, which as the Bible says is the source of our strength, can only happen through our gaining victory over our situations and challenges; and by faith having successfully defeated the strategies of the enemy in our life!

That’s what Jesus meant when He said:
In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world!” Selah

So your mission and mine today is to not be on the defensive, cowering in fear at what we think may happen; but rather God has given us an “E” ticket ride to have the thrill of a lifetime, which will be the most exhilarating experience anyone can ever have, in our riding the wave and flow of the Holy Spirit in our situations.

So instead of our shrinking back and hiding in the face of adversity, we are now aggressively charging the gates of hell, and those mountains in our path… because now through our own experience of having seen the Word in action and the power of God, we know beyond any doubt that GREATER is He that is in us, than he that is in the word… that truly now our JOY can be complete! Selah

Now go out today and kick Satan’s butt, in Jesus name! 🙂

Shalom,

Skip Barland

Subject: WHEN YOU HURT

WHEN YOU HURT

by David Wilkerson | June 28, 2010

In one way or another, we are all hurting. Every person on earth carries his own burden of pain.

When you are deeply hurt, no person on earth can shut down the inner fears and deepest agonies. Not the best of friends can understand the battle you are going through or the wounds inflicted on you.

Is there a balm for a broken heart? Is there healing for those deep, inner hurts? Can the pieces be put back together and the heart be made even stronger?

Yes! Absolutely yes! And if not, then God’s Word would be a hoax and God himself would be a liar. That cannot be!

God didn’t promise you a painless way of life. He promised you “a way of escape.” He promised to help you bear your pain. Strength to put you back on your feet when weakness makes you stagger.

Our loving Father said, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Your heavenly Father watches over you with an unwavering eye. Every move is monitored. Every tear is bottled. He identifies with your every pain. He feels every hurt. He will never allow you to drown in your tears. He will not permit your hurt to deteriorate your mind. He promises to come, right on time, to wipe away your tears and give you joy for mourning.

You have the ability to make your heart rejoice and be glad in the Lord. God’s eye is on you—and he commands us to rise up and shake off all those fears causing doubt.

http://www.worldchallenge.org/en/devotions/2010/when-you-hurt

This is the direction the Powers that Be are taking our country…

This is the direction the Powers that Be, if they have their way, are taking our country, unless we wake up!

We have a lot at stake, and so let us pray and let us be alert so that we not repeat history in our country!



Please note there is letter (see below) from a retired Border Patrol Agent that you should read.

Also you will note that whereas the above video was recorded under the Bush administration, and also by a person who is left of center, nevertheless I recommend you listen to what she has to say.

What has happened here in America is that this Globalist Oligarchy, who are in control behind the scenes out of sight, are using this division, that pits the Right against the Left in order to keep our attention off of what they are doing behind the scenes… and we need to be aware of that.

Please also note that this agenda that will be put in place under Obama, will be from Executive Orders that were first signed into law by former President Bush, that deny us our Constitutional rights.

This is most definitely not a partisan issue at all, and that’s my point; and it doesn’t’ at all matter whether we have a Republican administration or Congress, or a Democratic one, the results most often are the same… with respect to our being moved closer to a “New World Order.”

If you will remember it was a “Conservative Republican,” in former President George H.W. Bush, who in 1991 first used the term “New World Order,” and said that it was inevitable!

So whether we are talking about George W. Bush Jr, or his father; or whether it is Bill Clinton; and now Obama… they all have been recruited and groomed since their college years, to serve this Globalist Oligarchy, and their “New World Order” agenda.

Now my second point is, I do believe that there is a real Islamic threat here in America, because after all we are still at war; and I believe also that there are real sleeper cells here, who are also intent on destabilizing our government, and are just waiting on orders to begin their terrorist attacks in our country.

Either way, from the Globalist point, their main agenda is still to get Marshall Law implemented and suspend all of our rights; and then they can seize power; so whatever the cause, that is the desired result.

So there is a bit of a balancing act of sorts going on; and there are also all sorts of varying and sometimes overlapping agendas that we need to be aware of.

My point, as I have said, is that I believe there is an entirely different agenda going on; and I really believe that what needs to happen here in America is that “We the People,” who make up the citizenry of our fair country need to wake up and smell the coffee.

I’ve also said this before too, but I think it is true, that the reason why our leaders in Washington DC are no longer responsive to the wishes and desires of we the people who elect them to office, and do whatever they darn well please in spite of our objections, is because there is a different agenda afoot that I believe is presently being accelerated towards implementation.

With all of the things that are presently coming to bear upon our country, including our economic problems, our weakened U.S Dollar, our unemployment problems, inflation, the oil spill crisis in the Gulf, the illegal alien situation, and whatever else is about to happen next, all of it is for the purpose of further destabilizing our government to the point there is civil unrest and panic among the people, at which point I repeat, the Obama administration will then have an excuse to declare Marshall Law and seize power.

Folks this is nothing new, because this same strategy has been used before in the past; like in pre-Nazi Germany for instance.

This is not by accident that things are happening as they are.

If you don’t believe me, just read the similarities between what happened in the 30’s, in Germany, and what’s going on today, here in America:

  • Hitler outlawed school prayer in Germany. In 1962, The U.S. Supreme Court did the same for us.
  • Hitler eliminated Christian holidays in the schools first by calling Christmas “Yuletide.” Most American public schools now call Christmas vacation a “winter break.”
  • Hitler took Easter out of schools and instead honored that time of year as the beginning of spring. It has likewise become common for schools in America to refer to time off at Easter as “spring break.”
  • Hitler controlled the church using intimidation and threats. A half-century ago, U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Baines Johnson, promoted a bill that included an amendment to use the Internal Revenue Service to remove the non-profit status of a church that speaks against the election of any specific political candidate.
  • Hitler enticed thousands of pastors to promote paganism in their congregations. Neopaganism is one of the fastest growing religions in America, doubling every 18 months according to a June 2008 article in The Denver Post.  Many American church-goers practice paganism such as “Christian” yoga, contemplative prayer, and walking a labyrinth. As evidence that church doors continue to open further to aberrant beliefs, a 2008 survey found that 57% of evangelicals do not believe Jesus Christ is the only way to God.
  • Hitler was an environmentalist and vegetarian. Marriages performed by the Nazi state frequently included blessings of “Mother Earth” and “Father Sky.” Today Americans increasingly accept radical environmentalism, pantheism, and the celebration of Earth Day.
  • Hitler was fascinated by eastern mysticism. Today an increasing number of American pastors encourage their followers to become “mystic warriors”.
  • Hitler believed in reincarnation. He even convinced SS officers that by murdering millions of Jews and other “undesirables” they were allowing them to get on with the reincarnation process and come back more quickly in an advanced status. Americans increasingly accept the idea of reincarnation as well as good and bad karma.
  • Hitler’s holocaust killed between 8 and 11 million Jews and non-Jews. Americans have killed an estimated 50 million babies since abortion was legalized through the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973. According to a July 7, 2008 article on worldnetdaily.com “An abortionist who claims to have destroyed more than 20,000 unborn children and who once was Hillary Clinton’s OB-GYN says he is doing ‘God’s work’ when he terminates a pregnancy…He admits that abortion kills a human soul.”
  • Hitler killed 270,000 handicapped people through active euthanasia.[1] America and the courts are rushing toward the same with the murder of individuals such as Terri Schiavo. Oregon voters passed their Death with Dignity Act in 1994 and re-affirmed it in 1997. Washington state voters legalized doctor-assisted suicide on November 4, 2008. In December 2008, a Montana judge ruled terminally ill residents of that state have the right to physician-assisted suicide, and “death with dignity” is gaining acceptance in other states as well.
  • Private schools were abolished by Hitler and all education placed under Nazi control. There is constant pressure from federal and many state education authorities to require that Christian schools use state-mandated, humanistic textbooks. The Home School Legal Defense Association is fighting numerous battles at any given time to prevent parents from losing the right to educate their children as they see fit. In August 2008, a federal district court ruled that the state of California university system may choose not to recognize the diplomas-and thereby deny college entrance to-students who attended a school using textbooks that express a Biblical worldview in the areas of history and science (i.e., Christian schools).
  • Hitler prevented dissenters from using radio to challenge his worldview. Many powerful liberals in America have made clear their intent to reintroduce the “Fairness Doctrine” that would require conservative and religious radio stations to offer equal time to anti-Christian, anti-conservative worldviews.
  • Pastors who spoke against Hitler’s worldview and his murderous regime found themselves on trial and frequently imprisoned for “Abuse of Pulpit.” In America, hate-crime legislation has the potential to criminalize Christians and pastors who speak out against the homosexual agenda.
  • Many Christians in Germany justified their allegiance to Hitler through a belief that “Their duty to God was spiritual; their duty to the state was political.”[2] Many American Christians now have bought the lie that their worldview can be divided between the secular and the sacred-the politician has one area of responsibility, the pastor another, and never shall the two meet. Yet the Bible teaches that all issues are fundamentally spiritual.
  • Hitler outlawed the cross and replaced it with the swastika. Today many churches, Christian colleges, and universities have willingly removed the cross from their buildings. Numerous court cases sponsored by the ACLU have required the removal of the cross from public grounds. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that the Ten Commandments cannot be posted on public grounds for religious purposes.
  • Hitler was fascinated with Friedrich Nietzsche and distributed his writings to his inner circle. Nietzsche promoted Nihilism, the belief that life has no meaning, and he is best known for his position that “God is dead”. Nietzsche is presently one of the most widely read authors by American college students.
  • Hitler exploited the economic collapse of Germany to take over as dictator and usher in his brand of socialism. America’s financial crisis has given liberals in both political parties the opportunity to grow the size of government and implement freedom-robbing socialism at lightning speed.
  • Hitler was obsessed with globalism, and many of America’s most powerful political leaders are willing to subjugate American sovereignty to contemporary globalism.
  • Many Germans responded to Hitler by retreating into neutrality. Today most Americans prefer to remain neutral on moral issues that they think don’t affect them personally.
  • On trial after World War II, Hitler’s henchmen used the defense that they had not broken any laws. True, they had not defied the laws of Germany since those had been re-written to fit the goals and objectives of Hitler. The Nazi leaders were nevertheless found guilty because the courts at the time recognized a “law above the law.” Yet now the U.S. Supreme Court has rejected the law of nature and nature’s God by claiming that as society evolves, morals evolve, and so the law, too, must evolve.
  • Calling upon Darwinian evolution, Hitler convinced the German people that purging millions of people was acceptable because of the need to create a pure race; also referred to as eugenics. American students across the board have been educated in Darwinian evolution because the Supreme Court has ruled that creation cannot be taught in our schools-even if both creation and evolution are taught side by side.
  • Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood in America became acquainted with the doctors and scientists that had worked with Nazi Germany’s eugenics program and had no quarrel with the euthanasia, sterilization, abortion, and infanticide programs of the early Reich.[3] Sanger even published several articles in Birth Control Review that reflected Hilter’s White Supremacist worldview. Planned Parenthood now grosses one billion per year.
  • In Germany, pastors often cited Romans 13:1-2 to encourage Christians to obey the Nazis. Today in America, many pastors have a false view of Romans 13:1-2 and have convinced millions that to disobey governing authorities is to disobey God. This poor training would facilitate Christians here doing just as the German Christians did if faced with similar challenges.
  • Germans accepted socialism to avoid pain. Today’s Americans are rejecting capitalism in exchange for government-sponsored “free” healthcare, education, and countless other government handouts.
  • Many Americans accept what I call, One World Spirituality. This is actually an amalgamation of the three worldviews of evolutionary humanism, Hindu pantheism, and occultism. I noted earlier that Hitler embraced all of these.
  • America is rushing toward government-sponsored, national healthcare. We already have a form of this in Medicare and Medicaid. Hitler, too, expanded and centralized Germany’s healthcare system. As Melchior Palyi explained, “The ill-famed Dr. Ley, boss of the Nazi labor front, did not fail to see that the social insurance system could be used for Nazi politics as a means of popular demagoguery, as a bastion of bureaucratic power, [and] as an instrument of regimentation.”

Now look that the conditions that were happening in the government that contributed to the Nazi Party being able to seize power, and take over the government:

  • The economic collapse of Germany after 1929 (main reason)
  • The lack of democratic roots in Germany
  • Under the Weimar republic it was impossible to secure a majority in parliament (this depicted democracy as a weak Gov. system)
  • The president had the authority to declare a state of emergency (Hitler used Hindenburg’s ability to do this in order to establish his dictatorship)
  • The fear of communism (Hindenburg appointed Hitler as chancellor as a result of such fears)
  • The Nazis exploited the weakness of the Weimar system and often used violence against their opponents
  • The Nazis made use of propaganda to shape public opinion (they controlled he media)
  • The Nazis used resentment against the Versaille Settlement to their ends.
  • Some other political parties did not support democracy and represented potential allies for Hitler

So while America is asleep at the switch, and is being mesmerized by the liberal media, with all the constant stream of rhetoric and lies coming out of Washington DC, and from the White House, the private international bankers, who both own and operate our Federal Reserve System, and also the large Corporate interests who have been bought and have sided with them, are fast moving us forward towards their New World Order.

The reason why our politicians don’t care about the illegal alien situation, and the reason they haven’t done anything to stop the traffic, is because it all is contributing to the desired results that they are wanting to see happen; and by the way are trying to force down our throats!

If they are successful, this will mean the end of our sovereignty as a nation, and the ultimate failure of our U.S. Dollar to the point we will be forced to capitulate and surrender to the demands of these Globalist Bankers… at least that I believe is the plan.

Everything this gentleman says makes sense, and I am sure that what he says is all true; but I think he and many others are missing the point, by not understanding what’s really going on, and what the true agenda is.

I do believe the other side is panicking however, and what we are seeing today, I believe, is a attempt to accelerate their desired end, to create public unrest in order that Marshall Law can be implemented, which will be the end to the rest of our constitutional rights; and will also allow this administration to forestall the coming elections in November.

I hate to say it, but I do believe that is the what the agenda is; and I also believe we have a chance to throw a monkey wrench in the works too, if this Restore America Plan moves forward; and We the People can take back our government, and restore our Constitutional Republic.

From all the reports I am hearing thus far, things are looking good so far on that front; and I do believe that is also causing a lot of panic on the other side, among the Globalist Bankers and their group, who control both our government and the media; and that at least in part is the reason for the attempted acceleration on their part, in order to destabilize and to seize power.

We have a lot at stake here, and I can only hope and pray that the American people wake up to what’s going on.

Shalom,

Subject: Fw: Retired Border Patrol Agent Letter

This Border Patrol agent is from Hereford, AZ
LETTER FROM A RETIRED BORDER PATROL AGENT:This letter sent to Tennessee Senator Bill Frist from a retired border patrol agent, and it has more common sense than all the bull being spewed from the Senate, with the exception of a few sensible representatives.

Dear Senator Frist:There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.

#1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want US citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a US citizen. Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their home countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as employment, medical care, instate tuition, government subsidized housing and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains at home. They want benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans.
What illegal aliens want are benefits of American residence without paying the price.

#2. There are no jobs that Americans won’t do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can’t take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won’t do for a decent wage.

#3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home countries.
They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their alien children assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.

#4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful US residents.

#5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.

#6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The US accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined.

#7. There is no such thing as the “Hispanic vote.” Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called “Hispanic vote” is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.

#8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the US. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the US from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the US to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican school children are taught that the US stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don’t believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their school children.

#9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let’s allow those one billion to come to America and we’ll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better life. I’ll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good reason to trash another nation?

#10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives, senior citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.

#11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents?

What is it about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price?

For about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both parties.

A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.

There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more.

You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded to US citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders in this country.

The interest will be steep either way. There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the courage to do what is right for America? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don’t even have the right to remain here? There will be a reckoning.

It will come in November of this year. We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.
