According to ABC News, the trial of Saddam Hussein will be an ’embarrassment’ to the United States. Hours after the rest of the world press rejoiced about his capture, ABC News reporter Terry Moran reminded viewers that America has only itself to blame for Saddam in the first place.

“For many years the United States had an interesting relationship, to say the least, with the Iraqi government as Secretary Rumsfeld was over in Baghdad meeting with Saddam Hussein years ago and there are allegations that the United States provided weapons to Saddam Hussein s regime during the Iran-Iraq war. And all that could spill out in a big show trial.

Earth to ABC — it ‘spilled out’ in 1983. Back in 1983, Iraq and Iran were embroiled in a bitter war of annihilation. The Iranians had just overthrown the Shah, set up an Islamist Republic under Ayatollah Khoemeini, violated the US Embassy and took its American occupants hostage for 444 days.

They were released by the Iranians the moment that Ronald Reagan succeeded Jimmy Carter as President of the United States. Saddam Hussein was an unknown quantity who appeared friendly to US interests, while Iran represented an immediate threat to the United States that continues to the present day.

But ABC didn’t mention any of that. Too much history spoils a good story. Speaking of history, in the same broadcast, Moran worried about whether Saddam Hussein would get a fair trial, or whether he would be ‘railroaded’ — you know, the same way the Allies ‘railroaded’ the Nazis.

Honest — he said that! I’m not making it up, although I wish I were.

According to ABC’s Moran, the Nuremberg trial of Nazis was not considered to be a model of legal niceties. They RAILROADED, in some respects, those defendants (the NAZIS!! – ed.), in the eyes of many jurists today.

Moran failed to identify the ‘jurists’ who believed the Nuremberg trials ‘railroaded’ the top surviving Nazis, including Gestapo leader Ernst Kaltenbruner, Hans Frank, the Butcher of Krakow, Luftwaffe commander Hermann Goering and SS head Heinrich Himmler.

Meanwhile, ABC’s Charlie Gibson worried about the problem of finding ‘impartial judges’ to try Saddam Hussein. It would seem the only ones who could be ‘impartial’ about mass murder, institutionalized rape and organized torture would be guys like Himmler & Co or maybe Saddam’s late sons.

(Unfortunately for ABC, they are currently otherwise occupied and unavailable to bring their dispassionate viewpoint on mass murder and torture to the table, thanks to the impartiality of allied bullets)

A bit later, Peter Jennings hosted a special called, “Saddam Hussein – Captured”. (catchy title – no wonder Jennings gets the Big Bucks).

Understandably not wanting Americans to get the wrong idea that catching Saddam was a GOOD thing, Jennings helpfully reminded America that, there s not a good deal for Iraqis to be happy about at the moment. Life is still very chaotic, beset by violence in many cases, huge shortages. In some respects, Iraqis keep telling us life is not as stable for them as it was when Saddam Hussein was in power.

(Evidently, Jennings was talking to Iraqis who lived in a DIFFERENT Iraq, but I digress. . .)

Instead of seeing the massive, spontaneous and — dare I say, JOYOUS demonstrations across Baghdad, Jennings discovered a strangely muted response from HIS Iraq at hearing the news.

This muted response is really shock, that he went down without a fight. In fact, some people say that while they re happy he was captured, they re disappointed because that the man who terrorized them for so many years went down without a fight. They feel cheated. They re essentially saying that it would have been much better, they would have been happier to see him fight because it would have justified the fear that they had for him for these so many years.

Assessment:

President Bush’s approval ratings jumped by ten points when the news of Saddam’s capture was made public. But you knew that, didn’t you?

Well, you did if you AREN’T among the “more Americans [that] get their news from ABC than from any other source” because ABC buried it.

Although the poll was commissioned jointly by ABC News and the Washington Post, Peter Jennings never mentioned it a single time during his World News Tonight broadcast.

On Good Morning America, Clair Shipmen explained what the ten point jump for Bush REALLY meant.

“And look, this is a personal victory and a political coup for President Bush, but interestingly, Americans are still very cautious. ABC News has a new poll out today that shows most Americans don’t believe Saddam’s capture means the job is done there; in fact, far from it. So I think six months from now, if you still see exploding violence there, if the situation isn’t stabilized, Saddam’s VICTORY is not going to seem decisive for this administration.”

I’m not sure how to characterize being pulled out of a hole in the ground, matted with dirt and cowering in fear represents a victory for Saddam, but hey, I have OTHER sources of news than ABC. I guess they were only talking to their regular audience.

I could go on and on. But I think I’ve gone on enough already on this topic, and then something even more outrageous comes up.

The mission of your Omega Letter is to serve as a Christian Daily Intelligence Digest designed to separate fact from fiction so you are better equipped to deprogram the brainwashed skeptics each of us comes into contact with every day, so there will be room in their brains to hear the Good News that the Lord is coming back soon.

Sometimes I feel like I am repeating the same things every day or harping on the same theme every day. As I was meditating on this, it suddenly occurred to me that it seems like it because there is so much deception out there to expose.

Not isolated instances of media bias or evidence of secret agendas, as was the case in years past. Now it is DAILY examples so numerous that it is difficult to decide which deception is the MOST relevant.

ABC s tag line is More Americans get their news from ABC News than from any other source.”

If true, how terrifying is that?

Deception is the hallmark of the last generation. Everything accomplished by the antichrist in the last days requires a campaign of deception on a scale so massive this is the only generation in history that would be capable of pulling it off.

The antichrist deludes the world into believing he is the man with the plan for world peace.

He deludes the world into believing he is the man with the plan for a kinder, gentler, all-inclusive global religion.

He deludes the world into believing he can solve the Arab-Israeli conflict and eventually deludes the world into accepting him as a deity worthy of worship.

When asked of the signs of His coming and the end of the age, the Lord of Glory began to tick off a list of events that sound like He was reading today s headlines; wars, rumors of wars, ethnic unrest, killer diseases, widespread earthquakes and famines, signs in the sun, moon and stars, and rampant sin that causes the love of many to grow cold’.

But the very FIRST thing he said was this:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (Matthew 24:4)

How To Distort Reality (Without Really Trying)

How To Distort Reality (Without Really Trying)
Vol: 27 Issue: 17 Wednesday, December 17, 2003

Maybe you already heard of Representative Jim McDermott of Washington State. In the weeks leading up to war with Iraq, McDermott and former Rep. David Bonior gave an interview from Baghdad to (who else?) Peter Jennings on ABC’s World News Tonight in which they defended Saddam Hussein against the impending ‘unjustified’ coalition invasion.

Back then, McDermott sided with Saddam in opposing what McDermott calls the “coercive stuff” — meaning UN inspections backed by force.

Bonior’s contribution from Baghdad was to charge that “a horrendous, barbaric, horrific” number of cases of childhood leukemia and lymphomas have been caused by “uranium that has been part of our weapons system that was dropped here during the last war.” These weapons “are coated with uranium that atomize and cause these serious health problems.”

Trying to “one-up” Bonior, McDermott told a sympathetic Peter Jennings that he believed the president–presumably with Cheney, Powell, Rumsfeld, Rice and others as accomplices–would use deceit to satisfy his craving to send young Americans into an unnecessary war.

Now that the war is over, we know that the “horrendous, barbaric, horrific” damage done by Gulf War I was NOTHING compared to what Saddam did to his own people as a matter of routine.

One would think that McDermott, et al; having had an opportunity to rethink his position, together with the undeniable character of the tyrant he defended, would have changed his tune. One would think. . .

But Jim McDermott told a Seattle radio station over the weekend that he believed Saddam’s capture was carefully timed, and that the administration could have captured him months ago — had it chosen to do so.

When interviewer Dave Ross asked again if he meant to imply the Bush administration timed the capture for political reasons, McDermott said: “I don’t know that it was definitely planned on this weekend, but I know they’ve been in contact with people all along who knew basically where he was. It was just a matter of time till they’d find him.

“It’s funny,” McDermott added, “when they’re having all this trouble, suddenly they have to roll out something.” In a later interview with the AP, McDermott called Saddam’s capture a “Christmas gift” to the administration.

Not to be outdone, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright mused aloud in a conversation with Mort Kondracke of Fox News that the Bush administration might have already captured Osama bin-Laden and was keeping his capture under wraps until Bush needed to use him to advance his political fortunes.

Assessment:

I’m not making this up — you CAN’T make stuff like this up.

There is even a name for this kind of political dishonesty. It’s called a Nixonian transparency. That is to say, being transparent, it tricks nobody — but it gives legs to any subsequent claims, as people say, “Didn’t I hear this somewhere before?”

The cumulative repetition of a lie eventually makes it sound feasible, as Adolf Hitler clearly explained in his political manifesto on the art of propaganda, Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”).

Everybody on the Left from Al Gore to Madeline Allbright to both McDermott and former Rep. Bonior were members of, or supported the Clinton administration. They were ALL behind the 1998 Iraq Liberation Act signed by the former president.

It was President Clinton who first outlined America’s official policy of ‘regime change’ in Iraq, to the wild cheers of the Democrats who were desperate to misdirect attention away from Clinton’s impending impeachment.

Indeed, immediately after signing the Act, Clinton launched “Operation Desert Fox” a four-day intensive bombing campaign against Iraq that received widespread partisan support.

In spite of what came to be called the “Wag the Dog Effect” later, nobody was arguing that Saddam should stay in power. Especially not the Democrats — then in power. That is a significant point — it underscores the lies now being told by those same politicians.

It is a case in which the left favors the end, provided no realistic means are employed to bring it about. Consider the battle over the tax cuts that turned the economy around. The left, from Tom Daschle to Howard Dean, continue to call them ‘calamitous’ but not one of them would dare rescind them.

The reason? They are ‘calamitous’ — not for America, but for the Democrats because they knew they would work as advertised. Just like they worked in the 1980’s under Reagan.

No politician will admit that they WANTED to see the economy tank, but no thinking person can interpret the left’s rhetoric and reaction to the good economic news any other way.

The left gives the benefit of the doubt to America’s enemies. There is no accusation against the sitting administration too heinous, no motivation above reproach.

Saddam’s capture? Merely political machinations by the Bush administration to garner votes — not the result of eight months of hard work by US forces on the battlefield.

To buy this lie, the whole military machine has to be in on the conspiracy, but that doesn’t matter. They condemn our troops by damning them with faint praise, simultaneously arguing that only their candidates are fit to lead those same troops in battle.

When Hillary went to Iraq on Thanksgiving, she did the same thing. Later, it was revealed that her trip was so unpopular that troops had to be DETAILED to meet with her.

One would hope that eventually, the American people will see through the lies and the manipulation and the cynicism.

For years, liberals condemned ‘conservative isolationism’ as the notion that America is too good for the world. Instead, they now call for a new kind of ‘liberal isolationism’ — in which view, the world is too good for America.

In that view, everything America does is suspect, while the globalists and UN diplomats are above reproach.

And its working. Anything negative about America makes global headlines. Even when the news is good, its bad.

A senior Vatican official reproached the United States for jerking Saddam out of his hole ‘like a cow’, saying, “I felt pity to see this man destroyed.” The remark, made by Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Vatican Council for Justice and Peace, was characterized by the New York Times as “expressing compassion.”

Kofi Annan joined the Vatican and the Europeans in condemning any trial of Saddam Hussein in which the death penalty is on the table. Annan went further, saying that Saddam’s capture will have no effect on the violence in Iraq.

The terror, explained the Secretary General, will only stop when the coalition occupation is ended. His remarks were dutifully carried without comment by the liberal media and echoed by the left.

In other words, we can’t defeat the terrorists without giving into their goals. Or, put into even fewer words, we can’t defeat the terrorists.

Because if the terrorists achieve their goals, their success will embolden them to commit more acts of terror to achieve their next set of goals. Does this obvious fact elude the brilliant minds of the world’s leaders?

There can only be two interpretations. The first is that, from Kofi Annan on down, they are so incredibly stupid they shouldn’t be allowed to operate machinery or drive a motor vehicle. Or eat using anything sharper than plastic spoons.

Or — they know exactly what they are saying, and would be only too pleased to see the United States whittled away at, perhaps to the point of collapse, so that they could take their rightful place as the agenda-setters of the New World Order.

If there is a third interpretion, please post it in the forums so we can discuss it. I would be fascinated to do so.

The Bible says that in the last days, there will be a sort of global New World Order. The Bible also divides the world in the last days into four spheres of global power. The Kings of the East, the Kings of the South, the Gog Magog Alliance and the Revived Roman Empire. No mention of America.

In describing the world as it will be at that time, Jesus opened with the words, “take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matthew 24)

Paul wrote that in the last days’ perilous times would come. He went on to warn of a world having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, saying ‘evil men and seducers would wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived’. (2Timothy 3)

And, despite the unfolding of prophecies put to paper thousands of years in advance, Peter tells us that, “there shall come in the last days, scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying; ‘where is the promise of His coming?’ (2Peter 3)

Paul tells us that, in concert with the introduction of the man of sin to the world, (that ‘Wicked’ which the KJV capitalizes as a proper pronoun), “for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” (2Thessalonians)

It was the Lord of Glory Himself Whose warning to believers came down through the ages to this generation: “And when these things BEGIN to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)

If these are NOT the last days as foretold by Scripture, then, please, what would the last days look like?

Through the UN’s Looking Glass

Through the UN’s Looking Glass
Vol: 27 Issue: 16 Tuesday, December 16, 2003

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan spoke to reporters about Saddam’s capture and laid down the ground rules for his trial, evidently believing that the UN has some jurisdiction in the case. He called a meeting of the UN Security Council to decide how and where the former Iraqi leader will be tried and whether or not the death penalty will be on the table.

Annan told the press conference that he cannot support capital punishment for Saddam Hussein, even though the captured former leader is accused of what he termed “heinous crimes.”

“The U.N. does not support the death penalty. All the courts we’ve set up have not included the death penalty. So, as Secretary-General, as the U.N. as an organization, we are not going to now turn around and support the death penalty,” he said.

Annan’s comments aren’t playing well in Iraq, where the Iraqi Governing Council foolishly believes that, since Saddam raped Iraq for 35 years and murdered an estimated two million Iraqis, they should have a say in his trial.

(Western estimates of Saddam s victim toll continue to be revised upwards, now standing at close to a half-million. But the Iraqis were there at the time; their numbers seem more probable).

The Iraqis argue that because Saddam ruled Iraq, committed his crimes in Iraq, committed them against Iraqis, and he was captured in Iraq, that THEY have jurisdiction.

Assessment:

Oh, those poor, foolish, backward Iraqis! For some reason, they don’t completely trust the UN to act in their best interests. Some of them blame the UN for prolonging their suffering by turning a blind eye to his crimes for three decades.

From 1991 onward, the UN imposed sanctions that only punished the Iraqi population. Saddam was able to maintain his brutal dictatorship, thanks to the UN administered ‘Oil for Food’ program that sent money to Saddam and did NOTHING to oversee how it was spent.

Under UN administration, Saddam bought Mercedes-Benz automobiles, computers, weapons, Cuban cigars, silk suits, paid millions to Palestinian suicide bombers, and used the change to pay bonuses to his executioners.

The Oil for Food program left Kofi Annan in sole control of an Iraqi slush fund that, in its final year, had ballooned to more than $17 billion. (Out of which, the UN was able to slough off its share in ‘administration fees’ before sending it along to French bankers who then took their cut).

Under the UN-administered program, imports of food, fuel, industrial machinery, spare parts, and medicine were nearly impossible to come by. Infant-mortality rates doubled, and there was widespread malnutrition and an increase in deaths from communicable diseases and cancer.

What began as a relief program for Iraqis suffering under sanctions turned into a multibillion-dollar contracting business flowing through the shrouded books of the United Nations.

By the end, the Russians were selling the Ba athist elite luxury cars, the French were providing broadcasting equipment for the Information Ministry and the Germans and Chinese worked on the phone system.

But Tun Mayat, a U.N. official who coordinated humanitarian relief in Iraq and who worked for the World Food Program for twenty-two years, told a New Yorker reporter back in December, 2000, that;

“Iraq has one of the best food-distribution systems he’d seen anywhere in the world. Food was rationed efficiently under the sanctions, and under the oil-for-food program the standard of living in Iraq had improved.” (New Yorker Magazine, “The Unvanquished” December 11, 2000)

The New Yorker printed Mayat’s assessment without question or comment, effectively presenting it to the world as if it were a statement of fact.

Here are the real facts: the United Nations refused to disclose anything beyond the generic details of the contracts the public still doesn’t know the actual names of the contractors, what they earned and what they shipped to Iraq.

Now, with control over the remains of the program shifting to the Coalition Provisional Authority, those records should be released.

The world needs to see where that money went. The Iraqis deserve to know exactly what they owe billions of dollars to France, Germany and Russia for. France, in particular, since they are now magnanimously offering to discuss restructuring (not forgiving) Saddam s debt.

Just as the Iraqi people deserve to know WHY the French, Germans and Russians, together with the United Nations, worked vociferously to keep Saddam in power.

It would be interesting for ordinary Iraqis to know that their money, under Kofi Annan s administration, flowed exclusively through a French bank, the BNB Paribas.

Given France s complaints of being unfairly excluded from bidding on Iraq s reconstruction, they might note that French President Jacques Chirac did not indignantly demand, in the interest of fair play, that the hundreds of millions involved be divided among banks of various nations.

Now that Iraq is free from state control of media, they might also discover that Russia, which in its own post-tyranny days received billions in aid, only to default on its debt 1998, is now demanding back from free Iraqis every nickel it cheerfully loaned to the dictator.

The hypocrisy is staggering, but not nearly as staggering as Annan s hubris in suggesting the UN should be the body charged with bringing Saddam to justice .

“I believe this should be done through open trials, in properly established courts of law, which will respect international norms and standards, including respect for humanitarian law,” he said.

In the UN s view, Iraq is incapable of ensuring this. So is the coalition. Annan says he is afraid Saddam will not receive the humanitarian treatment he deserves unless the UN takes jurisdiction.

And this is where it gets REALLY good.

Nobody laughed.

The ‘Greatest Arab of All Time’

The ‘Greatest Arab of All Time’
Vol: 27 Issue: 15 Monday, December 15, 2003

The BBC has a program called “Great Britons” in which it examines the lives of famous Brits from history ranging from Winston Churchill in the last century to the framers of the Magna Carta in 1215.

An Arabic television network is running a Middle East variant of the program in which it is accepting nominations for the greatest Arab of all time. Thousands have already logged on to the website for the series or sent text messages to vote for their preferred candidate.

The program is produced by the Middle East Broadcasting Center, based in Dubai. A list of the 100 most popular figures will be announced early next year. From there, viewers will vote for the top ten nominees, and biographies of the top ten will be produced.

Ultimately, viewers will be asked to vote for the greatest Arab of all time. Producers at MBC, which claims to have a viewership of 130 million Arab viewers worldwide, said that there was no intention to exclude controversial figures.

The only restriction on nominations in the Arabic version is a plea on the website not to include the names of the prophet Mohammed or the early four Caliphs because of their incomparable qualities and their stature across humanity .

Producers say that comparing these figures could also cause problems between different Islamic groups, a conflict that the producers say they hope to avoid.

MBC wants to replicate the mood of Britain and Germany when their shows were being televised, according to Rassi. Based on the other series, we expect to create a big surge in national pride, a real ‘feel-good’ factor. Everyone has their own preferred hero and feels ownership of him.

While the producers say that it was too early to speculate on who would be among the frontrunners, one producer of the series felt that modern personalities would eclipse the historical.

Assessment:

Unsurprisingly, among the nominees for the greatest Arab of all time are Osama bin-Laden, Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat. The program’s producers anticipated that, although they admit it may prove ’embarrassing’ should one of them win the vote.

Embarrassing? Lessee . . . Yasser Arafat. Yasser Arafat is a terrorist — indeed, Yasser Arafat raised terrorism to an art form and made it the preferred weapon of Arab nationalists and Islamic fundamentalists.

Arafat is personally responsible for the first airline hijacking in July, 1968. In December, 1968, Yasser Arafat ordered an attack against an El Al aircraft parked on the tarmac at Athens Airport. In February, 1969, Arafat’s group attacked another parked El Al plane parked at the Zurich airport.

By January, 1970, Arafat’s terrorists had launched no fewer than twelve separate attacks against aircraft, airports and Israeli airliners world-wide.

Sick of airport security? Thank Yasser Arafat.

Arafat is an unrepentant liar whose word has proved worthless on every occasion — without exception — in which he has pledged it. Currently, Yasser Arafat remains holed up in the rubble of his Ramallah compound, completely surrounded by Israeli troops and totally dependent on Israel for the basic necessities of life.

Osama bin-Laden has sent uncounted numbers of Arab terrorists to their deaths in suicide attacks against Western interests. When given the opportunity to face ‘martrydom’ on the battlefield, Osama dressed himself in women’s clothes and ran away.

Currently, Osama bin-Laden lives like an animal in a cave somewhere, hoping to avoid the ‘martrydom’ that he sent so many of his subordinates to experience.

A videotape smuggled out from Afghanistan in the months following 9/11 shows a gloating bin-Laden bragging that most of the hijackers never knew they were going to die until they’d already hijacked the planes. Like Arafat, his word is worthless and his terror ’empire’ is built on lies.

Then there is Saddam. Saddam Hussein ruled Iraq for thirty-five years. During that time, he was responsible for the deaths of more Muslims than any Western leader in history, including Slobodan Milosevic or Josef Stalin.

Saddam tortured and murdered the Shi’ites in the south for the express reason that they WERE Shi’ite Muslims. He launched the Iraq-Iran War in 1980 that claimed the lives of an entire generation of Muslims on both sides over eight years of brutal warfare.

We’ve seen the smuggled videotapes of Arab Muslims having their tongues cut out in public, bound Arab Muslims thrown bound from the tops of buildings, chopping of limbs of Arab Muslims, and wrapping Arab Muslims with detonation cord and blowing them apart, evidently for his personal amusement.

Like Arafat and bin-Laden, martyrdom is only an option for his minions. When given the opportunity, he went from living in a marble palace to living in a hole in the ground under a mud hut in order to save his own skin.

When he was finally captured, he was armed with a pistol and two AK-47s. He didn’t fight, he didn’t martyr himself, he surrendered meekly. When Saddam emerged from his hole, with his hands up, he identified himself — in English — as “Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq, and I want to negotiate my surrender.” One American soldier said dryly, “President Bush sends his regards” before yanking him unceremoniously from his hole.

Videotape of the tyrant showed Saddam meekly submitting to a medical exam.

These are among the nominees offered by the Arab world as candidates for the title of ‘the greatest Arab of all time’.

If it was me, I think that would be something that I’d want to keep to myself.

Tyrant Captured Without a Fight

Tyrant Captured Without a Fight
Vol: 27 Issue: 14 Sunday, December 14, 2003

Saddam Hussein the tyrant has been captured. I doubt there is a reporter in the Western world who hasn’t planned exactly how he would write this story when the time came. I know that I did, but now that it is reality, whatever I had planned seems inadequate.

Like many others, I anticipated announcing his demise at the hands of coalition troops in the aftermath of a fierce firefight, as occurred with his two sons, Uday and Qusay.

Instead, Saddam was discovered cowering in a hole underneath a mud shack. He was captured without a shot being fired, although the tyrant had two AK-47’s and a pistol, presumably so that, if the troops came, he wouldn’t be taken alive. But when the time came, the monster who took so many lives during his thirty-five year reign didn’t have the nerve to take his own.

As I was watching the celebrations in Iraq, I was suddenly struck by the memory of those same Iraqis dancing in celebration when the word came of the attacks on New York and Washington. In retrospect, the dancing and singing in 2001 was obviously forced.

What went on in the streets of Baghdad when the pictures of a bearded, dirty and disheveled Saddam was flashed across the airwaves was genuine ecstacy.

Assessment:

Now that we got him, what will happen next? Already, the Europeans have weighed in, demanding he be tried by the UN’s International War Crimes Tribunal. They want him tried there because Saddam won’t face the death penalty. And the Europeans are already condemning any effort to bring Saddam before any court that could impose the ultimate sanction.

The United States suspended Iraq’s death penalty when the Coalition Occupation Authority took over governing Iraq. But the US plans to restore Iraq’s sovereignty by July 1, 2004.

By the time Saddam comes to trial, Iraq will be a sovereign nation with the right to make that decision for themselves.

Saddam’s crimes were not against the Europeans or the UN, in the final analysis. Saddam ordered the mutilation and murder of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Saddam doesn’t owe the UN or the Europeans a ‘show trial’. He owes the Iraqi people JUSTICE.

In any case, the Butcher of Baghdad is no more.

Note:

Forgive the brevity of this morning’s briefing. We’re still pretty sick, but I think the worst of it is over. I’ve been too sick to interact much in the forums for the last couple of days, but I have been checking in from time to time and I want to thank you so much for your prayers — which have clearly been effective. Although the last couple of days haven’t been pleasant, it has been nowhere nearly as bad as it could have been.

“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16)

Gayle and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support. Praise God for answered prayers.

And praise God for the capture of the tyrant!

God bless America!

The Beasts of the Earth . . .

The Beasts of the Earth . . .
Vol: 27 Issue: 13 Saturday, December 13, 2003

Emergency rooms across the country are jammed with flu victims. In Seattle, there have been more people treated for the flu so far than it did for the entire flu season last year. School districts in Idaho had so many flu cases that they closed for days, and nursing homes report a spike in flu-related deaths. A Roman Catholic church in Gallup, N.M., stopped passing the chalice at Communion this week on a doctor’s advice.

At least two newspapers are comparing the current flu epidemic with the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic that killed a half-million Americans and more than fifty million people world-wide. That pandemic infected one fifth of the world’s population and the final death toll after one year killed more people than all the deaths on all sides during the four years of World War One.

Stockpiles of this year’s vaccine are dwindling, and making matters worse, this year’s strain doesn’t match the vaccine, making the flu shots we have less effective.

According to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, every year, the flu kills some 36,000 Americans, but the CDC says it is likely that the death toll this year will be much higher.

Assessment:

My wife and I didn’t get the flu shot this year. Instead, yesterday, we got the flu. I can say from personal experience that it is everything it is cracked up to be.

In its comparison between the current epidemic and the 1918 Spanish Flu, the Rocky Mountain News noted that famous novelist Katherine Ann Porter was a young reporter for that newspaper when she was infected by the Spanish Flu. Porter barely survived the disease, which killed her fiancee. Later, she wrote a short novel based on her experience. She titled it, intriguingly, “Pale Horse, Pale Rider.”

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” (Revelation 6:8)

The current epidemic isn’t, of course, the pandemic foretold during the Tribulation. (Although it feels like it to me) We aren’t in the Tribulation, and this influenza outbreak is nowhere nearly as widespread or as deadly as the one that decimated the planet in 1918.

But it is a reminder that the rider on the pale horse won’t be deterred by modern medicine. The ‘pale’ horse of Revelation 6:8 is translated from the Greek word, ‘chloros’ which actually means a pale, greenish, sickly color. It says that power is given him over a fourth part of the earth. (The 1918 pandemic infected a fifth part of the earth)

His tools are the sword, hunger, and the ‘beasts of the earth’. The word translated ‘beasts’ is from the Greek root ‘therion’ which is used uniquely in this passage. In other passages, ‘beasts’ are translated from the Greek word ‘zoon’ which can be either a man or an animal, depending on the context. But the rider on the chloros horse kills with the ‘therion’ (beasts) of the earth. ‘Therion’ refers to a venomous living thing.

A virus is a living thing. And, as I can attest to personally, (as can many of you) this virus is as venomous as anything I’ve experienced in my lifetime.

I am also a bit light-headed and somewhat dizzy, so please forgive me if today’s OL isn’t up to the standard of excellence that you deserve. I pray God’s protection over each of you and your families this flu season.

And may God bless America.

Special Report: Axis of Crybabies

Special Report: Axis of Crybabies
Vol: 27 Issue: 12 Friday, December 12, 2003

There is something obscene about the idea that the nations who wanted to keep Saddam’s torture chambers open, the rape squads gainfully employed and the grave-diggers on overtime demanding ‘their fair share’ of American taxpayer money being spent to rebuild Iraq.

The self-loathing side of Americana has already begun hand-wringing, crying the Bush is ‘alienating our allies’ and ‘provoking the international community’ and so on and so forth. Which ‘allies’ have we alienated, exactly? The French who actively worked against the United States at the UN? The Germans who chose their leaders based on which one was the most adept at anti-American rhetoric? The Russians? These countries might not exactly be America’s enemies, but they certainly aren’t America’s allies in any identifiable sense. Especially the French.

France, Germany, Belgium and Russia pulled out all the stops, played every dirty trick in the book, and fought tooth and nail to keep Saddam in power for one reason only. Because they were making money off Saddam. Which means they were making money at the expense of Iraqi freedom.

Well, maybe not JUST the money. In the case of France, it was also an opportunity to take the US down a peg or two, which, when added to the finanical incentive, was just too good to resist.

Now they are crying that they are being unfairly excluded from bidding on $18 billion worth of reconstruction contracts. They, together with the United Nations, have made allies out of murderers and tyrants, but that is in the past, they say. Now they just want to ‘help’ Iraq rebuild — provided they get paid.

The Bush administration warned the Axis of Crybabies that US contracts (using US money) would be awarded based on the level of support they gave the coalition. Since the fall of Saddam and the resulting evidence of his brutality, you’d think that Paris and Berlin would be mortified at having fought to keep him in power. But to this point, they have still refused to offer any meaningful assistance to the Iraqi people. Instead, the Germans unashamedly sought to preserve in Iraq a regime of the sort from which American and British troops saved them from in 1945.

The hand-wringers and self-loathing Americans in the Congress and elsewhere don’t seem to be aware of the fact that Iraq’s reconstruction is already underway. Look who is helping right now — and look who is not.

Iraq was left with crushing debts by Saddam Hussein — debts owed to Germany, France and Russia for military hardware and equipment they sold him on credit. Saddam is gone, but the Axis of Crybabies not only demand payment from the already suffering Iraqi people, but they also expect to profit from a liberation effort they did their best to prevent. It seems probable that the ordinary Iraqi on the street is unlikely to forget who underwrote their suffering at the hands of the mad tyrant.

The Pentagon is excluding these countries, together with the other nations that aided and abetted Saddam’s murderous regime, for what it says are ‘security reasons.’

It is entirely reasonable. Who knows what contacts they or their governments still have with Saddam or his henchmen, many of whom are involved in terrorist attacks on Coalition forces, aid workers and so forth?

Assessment:

The Germans complained that the Bush decision to exclude them from the bidding was a ‘violation of international law’ — to which President Bush replied, “International law? I’d better call my lawyer.” The comment was instantly pounced upon by the European press, who called the joke a ‘sneering dismissal’.

Why not? It isn’t like America hasn’t been sneered at for wanting to liberate Iraq, sneered at as ‘war profiteers’ (since America is out billions, that one still baffles me) and sneered at for asking the world community for help building hospitals, clinics and schools for a people whose suffering goes beyond anything most people can even imagine.

One of the more interesting complaints coming from the Axis of Crybabies is the ‘nerve’ of President Bush in excluding them from reconstruction and then phoning each of the leaders to ask them to forgive Saddam’s Hussein’s debt to give the Iraqis are running start.

“It does seem gratuitous and unnecessary,” said Anthony Gooch, a spokesman for the EU’s delegation in Washington. “On a day when you see President Bush seeking the active support of three heads of government from Russia, Germany and France to help restructure Iraq’s debt, that while the left hand is doing one thing while the right hand is doing something else, it does suggest a certain incoherence,” he continued.

Certainly does. It is incoherent for the Axis of Crybabies to actively work against both America and the ordinary Iraqi people, demand repayment of debts ordinary Iraqis never incurred, while expecting to profit from a liberation effort they opposed.

“Our people risked their lives,” the President explained, coherently enough. “Friendly coalition folks risked their lives and therefore the contracting is going to reflect that and that’s what the U.S. taxpayers expect.”

The amazing part is that this is even a topic of debate. It is another example of common sense being turned on its head. The Bible says that in the last days, the nations of the world will lose their collective sanity, to the degree that when Jesus returns at the end of the Tribulation, they will turn their puny weapons on the Lord of Glory and try to shoot Him out the the sky.

It appears that the descent into madness is already in progress.

As The Stomach Turns . . .
Vol: 27 Issue: 11 Thursday, December 11, 2003

The Democratic nominating process is turning out to be as much a soap opera as was Election 2000, only without the drama. Just the suds. Democratic front-runner Howard Dean has decided to run his campaign by lending credibility to the urban legend that President Bush knew in advance of the September 11 attacks, but did nothing to stop it.

Dean laid the charge first on National Public Radio on December 1, and then repeated it again on “Fox News Sunday” on December 7.

In his Dec. 1 interview on NPR’s “The Diane Rehm Show,” Dean was asked about allegations that President Bush is suppressing information that he was warned about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “The most interesting theory that I have heard so far . . . ,” Dean responded, “is that he was warned ahead of time by the Saudis.”

A week later, given the chance to recant, Dean said that HE doesn’t believe it . . . sort of. “I don’t believe that,” the candidate said, then added: “But we don’t know, and it’d be a nice thing to know.”

He concluded: “Because the president won’t give information to the Kean Commission, we really don’t know what the explanation is,” Dean told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

I found it interesting that not ONE of the other nine candidates called Dean down on his comments, as desperate as they are to make him look bad and advance their own campaigns. When debate moderator Scott Spradling did, Dean defended putting the charge out there, despite subsequently calling it a ‘crazy theory.’

Does that mean that Liebermann, Edwards, Kerry, etc., believe that George Bush bears personal responsibility for September 11? That seems unlikely in the extreme.

Robert Novak quoted a 35-year Democratic political operative saying, “Dean doesn’t understand that he’s accusing Bush of something worse than an impeachable offense. It’s treason.”

In point of fact, if true, it would be more than treason. Dean is accusing the sitting President of the United States with more than three thousand counts of murder.

So why didn’t the rest of the Democratic hopefuls leap on the opportunity to make Dean look like a loose cannon? The reason is simple. As ridiculous as the charge is, nobody wants to sound like they are defending the hated George Bush.

Dean’s comments were immediately picked up by the wire services and flashed to every newspaper editor in the world.

Russia’s Pravda [‘pravda’ in Russian, means ‘truth’] jumped on it immediately, reporting Dean’s charges as fact. News media in other countries simply carried the Pravda report without comment, others ran stories saying approximately; ‘Pravda reports that George Bush had prior warning of September 11, but allowed the attacks to take place, according to presidential candidate Howard Dean.’

To make it more interesting, Pravda didn’t say the Saudis warned Bush. The Russians claim Bush was warned by Moroccan and Jordanian intelligence.

The average butcher, baker or candlestick maker abroad, already conditioned to believe anything negative about America, [especially the Europeans] then tells his friends, ‘Hey, did you hear about George Bush?’

Assessment:

Allow this to sink in for a minute. Are these candidates even AMERICAN? Are they under some delusion that the rest of the world knows the difference between Republican and Democrat?

Or that the rest of the world thinks there are ‘good’ Americans or ‘bad’ Americans and that they are identifiable by party affiliation? This isn’t about politics — this is about AMERICA!

How could anyone claim to have America’s best interests at heart and then claim that it is, in effect, a criminal enterprise run by a treasonous mass murderer?

No matter how blind their hatred of him is, George Bush is their president, too, unless they have renounced their US citizenship. To the rest of the world, George Bush IS America.

To the rest of the world, he is the President of the United States, and even those simple-minded enough to believe he stole the election know that at least half of America voted for him.

To allow such an outrageous lie to stand unchallenged is only one step short of endorsing that lie. But it doesn’t hurt George Bush domestically, it hurts America internationally.

Only the most dedicated Bush-haters would buy the conspiracy theory. If it had ‘legs’ as they say in the newspaper business, Bush wouldn’t be fighting impeachment, he would be running from a lynch mob. And party affliation wouldn’t mean a thing.

Dean’s charge is more than irresponsible. It is libelous, which is why Dean was careful to say that he ‘doesn’t believe it’ himself, but by implication, many Americans do. That’s good enough for the foreign press.

America is a nation at war. We are in a battle for our national lives, against a world filled with enemies. Even our alleged friends are suspicious of our motives, prepared to accept any story that confirms their pet suspicions, to the point that even when confronted with the evidence, still condemn us for removing Saddam Hussein and his terror machine from power.

And most of the anti-American propaganda abroad is being spread by American politicians so hungry for power that America’s national interests are secondary to partisan propaganda.

I repeat, not ONE of the other eight candidates, not even Joe Liebermann, even questioned Dean’s incredible charge.

As we count down to the end of the age, all the various players in the last days’ scenario are moving into alignment exactly as Scripture foretold. Ezekiel’s Gog-Magog scenario envisions Russia, together with Iran and the Muslim states of North Africa, launching a sneak attack against Israel.

A person who never heard of Ezekiel, looking at the global situation as it exists, would conclude that is a likely scenario.

Similarly, it isn’t far fetched to conclude that eventually, China’s 200 million man army will one day rise up to challenge the world order, as predicted by the Apostle John.

It is clear that Europe has set its sights on super-power status, lining up with Daniel’s prophecy of the Revived Roman Empire. The fourth sphere of world power, the Kings of the South, are working toward building a pan-African union.

But America, currently the most powerful nation the world has ever known, isn’t mentioned in Bible prophecy.

It’s one thing when Osama bin-Laden says that America is a criminal enterprise run for profit by a treasonous mass murderer. It another thing when the America’s top Democrats agree with him. It turns my stomach.

No wonder the whole world hates us.

A Tale of Two Realities

A Tale of Two Realities
Vol: 27 Issue: 10 Wednesday, December 10, 2003

According to the mainstream press (and all nine Presidential hopefuls) there is nowhere more inhospitable to Americans than Iraq. Americans are ‘invaders’ and, to listen to the news, under constant attack by a resentful Iraqi population.

What you don’t learn from the mainstream press are stories like Army Civil Affairs Captain Kent Linder. Linder has a fan club of sorts. Every time Lindner checks in on the group of young, deaf Iraqi seamstresses at their factory here, the women swarm him with admiration. “I love you!” one of them writes in the dust on Lindner’s SUV.

Such small-time adoration doesn’t make the headlines. Instead, the media and critics of the administration weave a tapestry of lies using relatively isolated incidences of war to create an image of an Iraqi policy in shambles.

So on this day, when Lindner and his fellow soldiers are cheered as they fire the deaf workers’ boss, a woman who has been locking the seamstresses in closets, holding their pay and beating them, the lack of TV cameras on hand is no surprise.

But later that night, mortars hit nearby. Cameras are rolling, and 15 minutes later folks back home instead see another news clip of Baghdad’s latest violence.

Its a source of frustration for the troops, who are slowly trying to stitch together the peace on the ground, while the final stages of the war play out on television.

In another part of Baghdad, a group of 7 year old girls chant; “Welcome, welcome to our school,” after the 490th Civil Affairs Battalion took under its wing to restore after it was badly looted postwar.

The now-bright-blue school has new equipment and new electrical wiring that feeds bright bulbs by the teachers’ blackboards.

As each soldier walks through the entrance to the official ribbon-cutting, the girls chant louder in Arabic, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Inside, headmistress Ibistam Mahdi cuts a yellow ribbon, and thanks the men through a translator.

“For the 350 girls here, it is a lot better,” Mahdi says.

In the cities, the convoys pass through marketplaces where women walk, arm in arm, to shop for trendy beaded skirts that sparkle in the sun. They pass blocks of electronics stores where men carry home boxes of MP3 players and satellite TV dishes. On busier streets, hundreds of roadside “money exchanges,” where Iraqis trade dollars for dinars, pop up like lemonade stands.

On another mission in Baghdad, soldiers from the 352nd Civil Affairs command pull up to the Ministry of Labor and Social Services to follow up on victims of a recent police-station bombing. By the gate, hundreds of needy Iraqis line up for welfare payments.

The soldiers of the 352nd have stopped in to pick up food and clothing for a family of 26. The family members survived the attack on the Adamiyah Police Station, but the explosion destroyed their apartments.

“All they have left is what they pulled out of the rubble,” says Capt. Chuck Timney. “These people could have a long wait for a new home, so we’re going to try and make it as comfortable as possible.”

As the soldiers arrive at the displaced family’s temporary quarters, the parents and children rush out to open the gate and help carry the packages.

Assessment:

This is the Iraq nobody talks about. I wrote some time back (When Tommy Came Marching Home) about what the guys who were in Iraq saw. I am spending some time among the Marines who’ve been there and rotated home. They tell me that press accounts don’t come close to presenting an accurate picture.

To put together the real picture, as reflected in the first half of this report, took considerable digging. But without exception, every Marine I’ve spoken to talked more about Iraqi support for them than of the Iraqi ‘dead-enders’ that get all the headlines.

The nine Democratic candidates are in agreement on only one thing. That America should abandon the seamstresses and schoolchildren and displaced families and get out of Iraq to save our own necks. Not a single Marine I’ve spoken to agrees. To a man, they were much more concerned about the seamstresses than the dead-enders.

The deadenders are merely paid assassins; they have no popular support among Iraqis. They are terrorists — paid by Saddam Hussein, or they are members of al-Qaeda, driven by their mad plan to bring the whole world under the domination of their version of Islamic rule.

They are NOT the Iraqis we came to liberate. They are the Iraqis we came to make war with. Osama bin-Laden is ferrying more al-Qaeda fighters into Iraq, ostensibly to drive the US out.

If the media and administration critics have their way, Osama will win, which will embolden the terrorists to continue to employ terror in order to affect US policy.

Former General Wesley Clark told Ted Koppel in the most recent debate that only he is qualified to pull out US troops, reinforcing and repeating the anti-American lie that we went to Iraq to occupy and steal Iraqi national resources.

He told Ted Koppel; “It can be done. We can be successful if we’re not too grandiose in our schemes,” Clark said. “I’m one of those people who doesn’t believe in occupying a country to get their natural resources.”

Not a single Marine I’ve spoken with (that has been there) agrees that we are there to take from the Iraqis.

Having seen the desperation of the newly liberated victims of Saddam, if any of them thought they were there to steal what little the Iraqis still had, if they believed that, I think we’d have seen the first mass mutiny in Marine Corps history.

What kind of American would claim, during a war, that the troops serving our country are little more than mercenary thieves acting at the behest of evil men in Washington?

So far, the only ones I have been able to locate are partisans seeking power and the media seeking to remove the sitting administration at all costs. The liberals who hate George Bush more than they love the American troops protecting them from danger.

From where I sit, halfway between two Marine Corps bases filled with veterans of the war and its aftermath, those Americans are as rare as Iraqis longing for the return of Saddam Hussien.

The troops that have been there can’t understand it. Apart from knowing the Bible predicts mass deception in the last days, neither can I.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come,” Paul writes in 2 Timothy 2:1. Listen to a few of the characteristics of the society upon which these perilous times shall fall; “BOASTERS, PROUD, BLASPHEMERS, UNTHANKFUL, TRAITORS, HIGHMINDED, TRUCEBREAKERS, FALSE ACCUSERS, FIERCE, DESPISERS of those that are good, LOVERS OF PLEASURE more than lovers of God.” (v2-4)

That was written by the Apostle Paul two thousand years ago to describe a single generation, somewhere in time.

It could just as easily been penned by anybody who is watching the current debate over Iraq.

Note:

My internet cable connection went down on Monday afternoon, thanks to the failure of some component on a telephone poll somewhere. The cable company sent out a crew and got me back online last night.

Please accept my apologies for not being able to deliver your Omega Letter yesterday. God bless you all for your understanding and prayers.

How to Run The World Without Really Trying

Woodrow Wilson s chief advisor was Colonel Edward Mandel House. Col. House was an unabashed globalist who wholeheartedly subscribed to the principle of elitist rule.

Rather a strange philosophy for an advisor to a Constitutionally elected national chief executive, wouldn t you think?

House was the author of a fictional novel entitled, Philip Dru, Administrator. The topic was the subject of some debate at the time. His book laid out, in clear, unmistakable terms, the plan for the New World Order. Although a work of fiction, the entire outline was lifted directly from the pages of his Insider s notebook.

Colonel House grew up an Insider. Thomas W. House, his father, got rich during the Civil War running supplies to the Confederacy from England as a Rothschild agent. The [Rothschild] Bank of England backed the South, hoping to achieve, in its third attempt, control of a central bank of issue in the US. House was an ardent backer of the Federal Reserve Act.

He acted as America s chief foreign diplomat during World War One. House was instrumental in bringing the US into the war, and played a major role in developing the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Col. House was one of the architects of the failed League of Nations, and a founder of the nefarious Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The Royal Institute of International Affairs

By 1885, the Rothschild group [Insiders] decided that control of the world s economic centers could not be maintained without control of the globe s political centers. Although politicians could be bribed, they were only reliable to a point. But only a true Insider, one familiar with the Big Picture, could take it further.

Thus, the Rothschild interests of London needed a political policy group to serve as its agent in the political arena. To that end, the Royal Institute for International Affairs was set up. Rothschild money through front companies provided all the financial support necessary.

By 1900, the Royal Institute for International Affairs [RIIA] had its people in place across the United Kingdom, and was ready to tackle the United States.

The Classic Thesis

World War One was the crisis selected to advance the thesis, which could be expressed as to bring about a global government, ruled by the elite, to the betterment of mankind. The war was easily managed; the Insiders were financing both sides, their agent, Col. House was advising Wilson; the Federal Reserve Act provided control of the most dynamic economy the world had ever seen, and there was plenty of spare change to be made in the bargain.

One could call it ‘management by trickle down economics . Wars need weapons. Both sides in the conflict are dedicated to destroying as many of the other side s weapons as possible, ensuring a steady demand for new weapons. Wars create demand by definition, a demand the Insiders were only too happy to meet. Along the way, the fat defense contract awards kept dissenters from complaining, full employment kept civilian populations happy, and media hyperbole about horrors committed by both sides kept the patriots happy. Everybody was happy except the millions of young men dead on the battlefield.

None of whom were Insiders!

The Rhodes/Milner Group

Cecil Rhodes was an Englishman who, through clever exploitation of the diamond mines and gold fields of South Africa, became one of the wealthiest men in the world at that time. The world famous de Beers Consolidated Mines and the Consolidated Gold Fields exist today, guarding and maintaining the same monopolies set up by Rhodes a hundred years before. Cecil Rhodes, with the backing of England s Lord Rothschild, so completely dominated the Dark Continent that modern day Zimbabwe and Zaire carried the name Rhodesia until 1979. In fact, for most of the Late, Great 20th century, Rhodesia was administered, not by its own government, but by the British South Africa Company.

Rhodes dedicated his life to the advancement of a globalist cause. Rhodes goal wasn t merely to see a world government, he set up a trust to federate the English-speaking peoples and to bring all the habitable portions of the world under their control. The trust he set up to further his Insider global agenda was called the Rhodes Trust.

The extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom and of colonization by British subjects of all lands wherein the means of livelihood are obtainable by energy, labour and enterprise, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of a British Empire, the inauguration of a system of Colonial representation in the Imperial Parliament which may tend to weld together the disjointed members of the Empire, and finally, the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity.

As part of a larger secret society set up by Rhodes in 1891 was a plan to educate up and coming young scholars on the nuances of how to advance the Plan. The trust set up to this purpose was the Rhodes Scholarship. President Clinton and General Wesley Clark are Rhodes Scholars, to name a few.

In his Confession of Faith Rhodes outlined the types of persons who might be useful members of this secret society. As listed by the American secretary to the Rhodes Trust, this list exactly describes the group formed by Milner in South Africa.

Men of ability and enthusiasm who find no suitable way to serve their country under the current political system; able youth recruited from schools and universities; men of wealth with no aim in life; younger sons with high thoughts and great aspirations but without opportunity; rich men whose careers are blighted by some great disappointment. All must be men of ability and character Rhodes envisages a group of the ablest and best, bound together by common unselfish ideals of service to what seems to him the greatest cause in the world. There is no mention of material rewards. This is to be a kind of religious brotherhood like the Jesuits, a church for the extension of the British Empire .

Lord Alfred Milner was the dominant trustee of the Rhodes Trust. He carefully selected candidates for the Rhodes Scholarship. He soon had a number of young men educated under the Scholarship placed in influential posts in government and international finance.

By 1919, working from the RIIA [also known as Chatham House] the Insiders had set up Institutes of International Affairs throughout the British dominions. The time had come to advance Rhodes stated goal of the ultimate recovery of America. It was time to set up such an organization in the United States.

Assessment:

This is another excerpt from the book I’m working on. It’s too fascinating to keep under wraps. And way too scary. Hope you are enjoying the snippets.

The amazing thing to keep in mind is that this is a Plan that has been ongoing for more than two hundred and thirty years. One can track it across the decades and see it being nutured and developed across generations.

And not ONE of its conspirators realizes they are part of a Larger Plan that reaches across millennia DIRECTLY to this generation.

“The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.” (Proverbs 28:11)
