Philippians 3:1 ¶ Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. 2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. 3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
This chapter is one of my favorites. I claimed this chapter in 1997 when the Lord saved me. I had to lay aside all my confidence in the flesh, and I had plenty of good works to have confidence in. I could not claim all the works according to the Jewish rights, rituals and traditions as Paul did. But I could claim all the rites, rituals and traditions so common in the Fundamental Baptist movement. The Lord showed me that I was trusting the wrong thing, and that I had to come to him.
In opening this chapter, Paul gives the Philippians a three point outline:
First, he is not ashamed to repeat himself, often many times over. Look at his books: Almost all of them revolve around some central themes: Namely, false teachers, Christ is the only hope of mankind, and the truth about the Israel of God. He considered it a safety measure to warn his converts many times over of dangers. Many of God's people, especially this writer, are quite hard-headed. I not only need God's warnings repeated many times, but I must go through the "school of hard knocks" over the same lesson more times than I care to think about.
In other words, we need the truths of God's word repeated to us many times.
Second, he warns about false teachers. Paul's implication here is that when he was at Philippi, he had warned the people about the false teachers who were following him around with their doctrine. Now he adds to that verbal warning a written warning. What he had said for their ears, he is now repeating for their eyes and the eyes of many generations to come (although he probably didn't realize this at the time).
Third, he again identifies the true circumcisionthe chosen people of God, i.e., the true Israel of God.
Let me take just one point here, and that is Second, the false teachers.
Paul identifies false teachers, calling them dogs, by what they are saying (concerning the true circumcision especially).
These first three verses starting this passage are an extremely strong warning against the Jewish false teachers. He follows his warning with an explanation to expose these false teachers.
The evil workers were teachers who supposedly represented the Lord God. They may not have arrived at this church yet, but their doctrines were making their rounds among the churches, and the teachers would get there sooner or later. The doctrine of the evil workers would load the people down with all kinds of work of the flesh for their salvation, as well as corrupt the doctrine of the circumcision. Paul tells them to rejoice in the Lord because they don't have to worry about doing enough works to assure their place in heaven.
V. 2 is one of the harshest verses in Scripture, and shows us the reason for Paul's letter. It was to warn of the false teachers. My hostility toward false teachers and their doctrines of destruction can't hold a candle to Paul's.
Paul begins this chapter with his warning against evil workers. These men had winning personalities, moral lives and pleasant words, yet they were evil workers. (1 Corinthians 2:1, Colossians 2:4.) Their acceptance by this church implies they were morally pure men.We cannot underestimate the moral soundness of the converts of Paul's preaching. The church here at Philippi was a morally sound church, yet these false teachers were a danger to them. Their doctrine did not line up with the Old Testament doctrine, for that was the only measure they had at the time.
Observe that it takes evil people to do evil deeds. Their deeds (doctrine in this case) made them evil or their evil deeds proved they were evil. It is easy to overlook a person's teaching if he is a good moral person with a nice personality. However, Paul does no such thing. We hear the saying (and I have used it often myself), "We need to separate the sinner from his sin." Paul tells us that it is impossible to separate sin from the sinner. Men are evil because their teachings and actions are evil. Neither men nor women can be separated from their sin. They were evil because their actions were evil.
The word of God never separates the individual from his sin. Can we?
Paul identifies these Jewish false teachers as dogs, evil workers and the concision
First, the false teachers were as sincere and dedicated as anyone could possibly be, yet they were just as wrong as was Saul as he was dedicated to kill Christians. Evil doctrine makes evil people. Their message was evil; that made them evil men. A person's evil deeds cannot be separated from the person. It takes evil men to do evil deeds.
Second, the false teachers went after the new converts, folks who were already saved. This has been typical of false teachers through the years. What we know today as Scofieldism (premill. dispensationalism) was built on proselytizeing, or taking people from already established churches. (The presenters of the new idea admitted their groweth was by proselytizeing, and rejoiced when they were able to "steal sheep." See Death of the Church Victorious.)
Third, the message of these false teachers was extremely close to the new truth which was being presented by Paul. In fact, in a couple of Paul's letters he mentions the necessity of the Spirit of God in order to make the distinction between the truth of God and the errors of these false teachers.
It is a common practice for a homeowner to have a mean dog for protection, and then hang a sign out that says, "Beware of the dog." The intruder enters at his own risk. Paul evidently did that here. He hangs the sign out, Beware of the dogs. This would have had the same meaning as it does today. As we mentioned, these men had winning personalities and were excellent speakers, but their message did not line up with the Scriptures as revealed in the Old Testament.
Illustration: When my brother and I were maybe 10 or 11, we had a dog, a small toy collie. He was a very cute dog and appeared very kind and gentle. And he was, IF HE KNEW YOU. If he didn't, that was a different story. He was very quiet with a stranger, but if that stranger turned his back on that dog, the dog had him.
Some evil workers and their false teachings are as obvious as a mean guard dog. Those aren't the dangerous ones. The dangerous ones are the ones like that little collie which we had. He was lying in wait ,and if you turned your back on him, he had you.
The warning of the apostle is obvious. These evil workers appear nice and sound good, but they will devour you if you listen to them.
The meaning goes further than that of a watchdog that bears watching. The word dog is used as a name of reproach throughout the Scriptures:
* Dog refers to a mail prostitute or sodomite. Deuteronomy 23:18. * Dog refers to the powers of darkness. Psalms 22:20. * Dog refers to a rebellious and stubborn people. Matthew 7:6. * Dog refers to the Gentiles. Matthew 15:26. * Revelation 22:15 gives us an ideal of the meaning as Paul used it.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Beware of dogs... It denotes those who are shameless, impudent, malignant, snarling, dissatisfied, greedy, and contentious.
And if this were not enough, he adds to it, beware if evil workers, beware of concision. The meaning of concision is to cut, mutilate and is a very obvious reference to v.3. It could refer to circumcision or to those who cut up the word of God to make it fit what they want to teach.
Though I have mentioned it many times, the true legalist teachers are those who add the works of the flesh to the finished work of Christ FOR SALVATION. However, there are those today who hate the law-word of God, so they define legalism as any effort to hold the Christian to the moral law as given in the Ten Commandments.
The false teachers of our day who teach a wrong view of Christ and the law easily fit into Paul's definition of false teachers here in Chapter 3. New Testament Christians only had the Old Testament Scripture to study. This would have made them well aware of what Paul meant when he called these men who were trying to influence them, dogs.
There was not a more derogatory term that he could have used. These were evil workers who were bringing false doctrine, strife and division to the church. Evidently they were present in the church when he writes this. Paul was not afraid of offending anyone when he exposed sin.
In typical manner, Paul doesn't repeat the false doctrine, but counters it with the truth of God. We can get an excellent idea of the false doctrine from the truth that Paul gives. Let me make a point here. The Law of God clearly forbids the study of false doctrines.
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. Exodus 23:13.
Colossians chapter 2 tells us that we are to be studying the word of God, not the false doctrines that are going around. Moreover, Exodus 23:13 forbids Christians studying the false religion of Judaism.
Paul identifies false teachers by what they are saying (concerning the circumcision especially). The word of God also identifies false teachers by what they are not saying, calling them dumb, lazy and greedy:
Isaiah 56:9-12 9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. 10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. 12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.
V. 9. Peter tells us that the beasts of the field represents the Gentiles. Acts 10, 11. Thus, the Lord called the God hating antichrist crowd, e.g., Babylon, against his people because they turned from his word, e.g., Babylon. (Isaiah 42:24.) He told the pagans that it was safe to come against his people because the watchmen who are suppose to warn them would not. Rather than warning the people, they were saying that everything would be fine; in fact, tomorrow would be better than today. The reason they were saying this is the gain that was for personal gain.
V. 10. Dogs refers to watchmen, or pastors, who do not warn of the danger approaching, for they are blind, ignorant, dumb, asleep, lazy and greedy. The only thing that awakens them from their slumber is their greed. If there is an increase in wealth or social standing in the eyes of others, they will rise up and work, every one for his gain.
V. 11. The term greedy dogs is used to describe those in the ministry for gain, so, fearful of losing their gain, they do not rase alarms.
I heard of a man who had a dog that started barking at night. Night after night he kept barking. The man tried everything to get the dog to stop, but the dog wouldn't stop. Finally the man got fed up with his noisy dog and got rid of him. If I remember right, he killed the dog. The very next night the man was robbed of all he had (and him and his family killed, I believe).
A primary responsibility of a pastor is to warn his people of the dangers of all kinds, including political, he sees. At times, the warning may be a false warning through no fault of the pastor.
Some might say, "I wish he wouldn't bark at everything." Which kind of a watchdog would you rather have in a dangerous neighborhood, one that barks a lot or one that won't bark at all? Some do not like the idea of a barking dog, but the best advice these people can have is to find a place that has a loud watchman and stay there for their own safety.
God calls spiritual leaders who will not warn his people about the danger he sees coming, false prophets. Part of the pastor's responsibility is to stay abreast of what is going on in the community, in the political arena, as well as in the religious community. There seems to be very little alarm sounded in churches over state sponsored wicked laws and activities. Those pastors are the dumb dogs that cannot or will not sound the alarm.
Paul identifies these apparently good men who are infiltrating Philippi as evil workers because they were doing evil by teaching doctrines contrary to the then revealed word of God, Genesis through Malachi. Can we define evil workers differently?
The Old Testament identifies false teachers as those who will not warn God's people. Paul identifies true teachers by their faithfulness to the Old Testament. What many are passing off today as a New Testament church is a church Paul knew nothing about. However, John identified it as the Laodicean Church in Revelation 3.
V. 3. Let us look at a few points here. Paul spent a lot of time on circumcision in Galatians, so no need to now, other than to say this:
Clearly, the false teachers were telling the new Christians that they had to become Jews through the rites and rituals of Judaism, circumcision, if they would be the true children of God. Even though Christ removed the partition between Jews and Gentiles, these teachers were still making that division. Ephesians 2:14-19.
V. 3, though many try to deny what Paul said here, he could not be clearer the new circumcision, or people of Godthe true Jews, consists of those who worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
Paul gives us three marks of the true circumcision, or the true child of God:
1. Those Which worship God in the spirit. The reference to Jn.4:24 is obvious. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
2. And rejoice in Christ Jesus. Keeping in mind the context here, what did the Jews rejoice in? John 8:39, Matthew 3:9. They rejoiced in their relationship with Abraham.
Many rejoice in money, social standing, possessions, numbers in church, or many other things. The true circumcision, or child of God, rejoices in Christ Jesus.
3. This is the point that the rest of the chapter is built on. This is the point that is closest to my heart because of the pit I was in, and from which the Lord found and rescued me.
And have no confidence in the flesh.
The context is pointing out that those of the true circumcision do not depend on any thing they can do or that they are to merit salvation. I cannot get this close without saying a word or two. The true circumcision does not claim a prayer as salvation. I am greatly distressed with the many things of our day that are passed off as salvation.
I was in a Christian book store some time ago, and they had a little booklet on display by Bill Glass, a famous youth evangelist some years ago. The title was HOW CAN I KNOW I AM SAVED, and he wanted $3.00 for it. It was not as big as my little booklet on salvation. Of course, I could not be that close without picking it up and looking at it. Sure enough, the plan of salvation did not mention a word about having to trust Christ to pay the penalty for your sins. It did mention that He died on the cross and that a person had to have an intellectual knowledge of that fact, but then he told them to turn their lives over to him and receive him into their life.
All of the nice sounding words built up a confidence in what the individual can do. Glass, and others like him, do not emphasize, if they even mention, what Christ did for the sinner in his place. The only message that will prevent confidence in the flesh is a clear presentation of the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ in the place of the sinner. Isaiah 52:7, Revelation 19:6.
1. Evil works and doctrines make an evil person. Sin cannot be separated from the sinner.
2. The only distinction today is between redeemed and lost. Those who try to continue a Jew-Gentile distinction today are false teachers according to v. 3, and Ephesians 2.
. 3. Physical Circumcision was done away with in Christ. The New Testament is a New Covenant with new signs and seals, not a renewal of the Old. Obviously, the method of salvation is the same from Adam to the end of all things. There is not one shred of Scriptural evidence that the signs and seals of the Old Covenant were carried into the New Testament in things such as infant baptism. (The Reformers had to keep and promote their Roman baptism to their followers, or they would have had to be rebaptized. Rome's baptism has been passed down from the Reformers in many Protestant churches, because Rome's baptism was never renounced by the Reformers. In fact, some paedobaptist churches recognize Rome's baptism.)
Irwin Baxter, Jr. of Endtime Magazine put out a message dated August 16, 2007 saying that God told him, "Two billion people will soon be wiped off the face of the earth. I have called you to get the message to every one of them." God told him to raise money for this outreach, saying "In the early church, they sold houses and lands, and laid the money at the apostles' feet. That's the way I will finance my endtime revival."
Baxter went on to say, "The war will start from the Euphrates River. Seventy percent of the Euphrates River is located in Iraq where over 160,000 American troops are fighting at the present time. Are we already in the war that will kill 2 billion people? It seems certain that we are. How soon will it explode? I cannot tell you with absolute certainty exactly when the war will spin out of control; however, I believe the most likely time is within the next 12-18 months."
With more than 18 months having passed since this false prophecy, you may still have time to sell everything you have and send all the money to Irvin Baxter. Personally, I would not send a dime to any of these false prophets, without first checking to see if they also have given away everything they have. Many of these "prophecy teachers" have made millions of dollars by their date-setting speculations, and they are holding on to their stash, demonstrating that they do not take their own doomsday predictions seriously.

The Higher Education College Fraud
"America's higher-education lobby has enjoyed spectacular success over the past three decades. By zealously marketing their degrees as indispensable to employment and a ticket to personal fulfillment, universities have convinced millions of mediocre students to enroll, spend gobs of (mostly) other people's money, and then fail their way off the campus to make room for warm bodies.
"In a cycle as regular as the tides, administrators first raise tuition, then go before state legislatures and Congress complaining about rising tuition, seeking more subsidies purportedly to benefit their cash-strapped customers. At the same time, universities have vastly expanded business enterprises on their campuses, such as hospitals and sports teams, that often boost their immediate cash flow and always boost their sales pitches to wealthy donors and powerful politicians.
"In his first address to Congress, President Obama called it every American's patriotic duty to enroll in post-secondary education, repeating the thesis, long discredited by careful research, that maximizing university attendance creates large economic benefits. That,' the president said, is why we will provide the support necessary for you to complete college and meet a new goal: By 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.'
"While challenging young people to achieve their potential is praiseworthy, the president is mistaken on two important points. First, the goal of leading the world in college graduation is neither achievable (because of our demographics) nor particularly worthwhile. Far greater economic and social benefits would accrue from boosting high-school graduation and encouraging hands-on vocational and technical training. Second, spending tens of billions of additional federal dollars on grants, loans, and tax credits is unlikely to boost college graduation much anyway though it may well boost attendance, and thus revenue for the colleges.
"The Obama administration is certainly committed to the spending part. The president's stimulus monstrosity raised the maximum Pell Grant by $500 (to $5,350) and expanded eligibility. It provided massive bailouts to state governments, allowing them to mitigate funding cuts to public colleges and universities in the midst of budget deficits, and even more massively expanded federal spending on scientific research, which will largely flow to campuses. The bill expanded federal work-study and loan-guarantee programs. And it transformed a nonrefundable $1,800 tax credit (the Clinton-created Hope Scholarship) into a $2,500 tax credit that is now partially refundable (the American Opportunity Tax Credit). Next came the outline of Obama's proposed budget, which would further boost research subsidies and eliminate longstanding federal guarantees for private lending in exchange for a federal-government monopoly over student loans.
"Much of this agenda is deeply misguided. Unfortunately, much of it is also popular. Millions of Americans are either saddled with big student debts, struggling to pay tuition for current college students, or worried that they won't be able to afford the tuition when their younger children grow up. Many will welcome another political promise that help is on the way but when universities raise their prices again to capture most of the new federal aid, these voters won't know to blame Obama and the Democratic Congress.
"When Washington or the states expand government aid, they make parents and students less sensitive to price. The dynamic is similar to the third-party-payment problem in health care. If it looks like someone else is footing the bill, customers are less likely to go without or shop around for a better deal.
"The result is that as subsidies rise, most of the benefit goes to universities and their employees, in the form of higher tuition and fees. Some students may end up going to college who previously could not, but most will be unprepared for college-level work. Even after extensive remediation during their freshman and sophomore years, many will either drop out the six-year graduation rate is less than 60 percent or further depress academic standards as the faculty inflates grades to keep them enrolled and happily filling out laudatory course reviews.
"So simply shoveling additional taxpayer dollars into universities doesn't significantly increase the nation's human capital. It just redistributes money from the general public to affluent professors and residents of college towns. Fiscal conservatives are right to object."

Wake up Christians. College is normally a waste of time and money, as well as a means of destroying Christianity.
[There was a picture of a one room school included with this article. There were 21 students in the picture, with two adults on the back row. The students' ages appeared to be from about 6 to maybe 10, all in a one room school house. The new overbuilt school buildings have done nothing to imporove "education."]

Gives the saying he only had an 8th grade education' a whole new meaning, doesn't it?! Also shows you how poor our education system has become and, NO, I don't have the answers !
Editor's note: HOW MUCH MORE OBVIOUS CAN IT BE THAT THE GOAL OF THE STATE IS NOT EDUCATION IN READING, WRITING AND COMPUTING? IT IS IN SOCIAL CHANGE.
It is unbelievable how much not only our country but of the whole world has been dumbed down, as we graduate young people who cannot read nor write. Why? The powers that be do not want people who can think for themselves. And we have just such people in political power, as well as religious power, today. They want followers who "need" someone to do their thinking for them.
Higher Education, sadly even in "Christian" colleges, today is not even higher than an 8th grade education of 100 years ago. It is a fraud with the purpose of removing the hard-earned money from the Christian homes and removing the Biblical Christian virtues from both men and women. "Christians" believe they must send their daughters to be trained in the ways of the world, contrary to the word of God (Titus 2), and their young men must be trained in subjects that could be better learned on a community level. Obviously, there are exceptions such as the medical profession, &c. [I speak from experience: I was not even taught the vowels in school, let alone the basic rules of English and grammar. My brother, 14 months younger, was taught the vowels, and he taught them to me. Nor was I taught to read, other than the "Dick, Jane" readers. The grace of God has been extremely good to me. 1 Corinthians 1:26-31. Solidly Christian Home Education is the only hope for the future.]

27.04.2009 Source: Pravda.Ru URL: http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-american_capitalism-0 [Warning: Immodest pictures on Pravda. There is money in porn, even in Russia. The following is how it appears on Pravda, errors and all.]
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. [Christians will not admit this fact.] Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.
Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper.
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

U.S. textbooks whitewash' Islam
Publishers are afraid of activists; they don't want trouble'
By Chelsea Schilling, March 06, 2009
"World History: The Modern World"
American students are not getting a realistic picture of radical Islam, and textbook publishers are even promoting the religion in U.S. public schools, experts say.
Gilbert T. Sewall, director of the American Textbook Council, a group that reviews history books, told Fox News the texts are sugarcoating Islamic extremism.
"Key subjects like jihad, Islamic law, the status of women are whitewashed," Sewall said....

Scientists Discover Active Thermitic Material in WTC Dust
Berkeley, CA, April 3, 2009 A new study by independent scientists and researchers suggests the cause behind the catastrophic destruction of World Trade Center Towers on September 11th can be seen in the dust itself: active thermitic material, a highly engineered explosive.
The study, published today in The Open Chemical Physics Journal, describes a finding of "red/gray bi-layered chips" in samples of dust taken from vicinity of the World Trade Center following its destruction. Using tools such as a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and x-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS) to analyze the material, the study authors concluded that, "the red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic."
The study's finding lends new support to the demolition theory put forth by critics of the official reports. ...

May 7, 2009, National Day of Prayer At the Moorefield WV courthouse.
At a previous meeting of the Moorefield Ministerial Association, i.e., MMA, four volunteers were sought to meet at the courthouse at 12:10, and each to present something for "prayer." Though four volunteered, only three showed up. I was one of the three.
The minister who opened the meeting was from the large Methodist church in town. Typical of Methodists, he is being transferred to another church after being here three years. He opened the "prayer" meeting with nice non-offensive blessing of the day prayer of thanksgiving that would make the hearers feel good about themselves. He then introduced the MMA president, a female "pastorette" of a large Methodist church south of town.
The pastorette had handed out a sheet to all present containing eight very inclusive, non-offensive prayers from the past. She took a good amount of the time convincing us that reading prayers from the past is just as good as "made up" prayers in the present. Obviously, such an idea reeks of Romanism. Then she had those present read some of the prayers with her that were written down, prayers from such "great" men of the past as St. Francis of Assissi and Dr. Martin Luther King, jr, "A godly man who greatly influenced our nation. He did all things for the glory of God." (I wondered at the time if his notorious adultery with the white women was for the glory of God?)
The man who had volunteered to pray for the military did not show up, so she also prayed (read from her prayer book) for the military. Neither of the two even referred to the word of God, let alone offered any verses from it.
It was more than obvious that the two Methodist "ministers" saw their responsibilities as no more than a good occupation that provided an income without having to work up a sweat, nor make any sacrifice.
(When my turn came, I read from Psalms 62:8, 66:16, Proverbs 15:8, 29, Matthew 7:7, Luke 18:1, Philippians 4:6 & 1 Thessalonians 5:17. I also gave a very abbreviated gospel message as I prayed for our community and leaders.)
I suppose we can expect no more from "ministers" who are in their ministries for their own personal reasons, and though they claim to believe God's word and speak the right words, do not use it. However, it was a response I got from a man in the group gathered there that shows the root of our problem.
While "milling around" waiting for the prayer time to come, I spoke with several people. I conversed with one man who attended a Baptist church on the north side of town. From what I understand, that church preaches the Bible. Some way, the conversation came around to the terrible situation our nation is in, particularly with our elected officials and our anti-Christ president.
Why the mess today?
The response from the man was quite disconcerting: "As Christians, we know what prophecy says, and all these things must come to pass before the end can come."
His attitude is quite common among "Bible believing and Bible preaching" churches. Consider what he said without saying it: "Isn't it great that things are getting so bad. As Christians, we know we are about to be removed from this mess. So why get involved. Getting involved for godliness in society means we are holding back prophecy, and prolonging our days here."
And thus the Christian withdrawal from society is a self-fulling prophecy: Things are getting worse (because Christians have abandoned their responsibility), which means the Lord is coming soon. So let us withdraw even more. J.N. Darby lives on through the continued faith in his new doctrine. (See Death of the Church Victorious for a complete discussion of the root problem and results we face today with an anti-Christ government.)
May God have mercy on this nation before it sinks completely into paganism.
Prophecy Conference, alive and well.
A very slick, first class publication arived, May 13, 2009, "The Midnight Cry." The prophecy conference came to Morefield WV. It encouraged people to come to a free program so they could learn about the future. Among other things, this man (Steward Pepper and his wife), with 20 years of prophetic study behind them, answered "Is Jesus really coming back to this earth and what about this idea of rapture?" Free Child Care - songs, crafts, stories. Free study material. Free bible for those who will come all 8 evenings. And the hooks go on.
I have beat the foolish "prophecy dog" to death, so suffice it to say:
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Where is the desire to teach and learn the Word of God, which alone can change hearts?
Bro Sprinkle called to make sure I was going to a preachers' meeting, so we could meet and go the 2.5 hours together. He shared this verse:
Proverbs 24:21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: 22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
The campaign promise was CHANGE, and many bought it.

MARCH 5th, 2009
Last Thursday Night Around Midnight, A Woman From Houston, Texas Was Arrested, Jailed, And Charged With Manslaughter For Shooting A Man 6 Times In The Back As He Was Running Away With Her Purse.
The Following Monday Morning, The Woman Was Called In Front Of The Arraignment Judge, Sworn In, And Asked To Explain Her Actions.
The Woman Replied, "I Was Standing At The Corner Bus Stop For About 15 Minutes, Waiting For The Bus To Take Me Home After Work. I Am A Waitress At A Local Cafe...
I Was There Alone, So I Had My Right Hand On My Pistol, That Was In My Purse, That Was Hung Over My Left Shoulder.
All Of A Sudden I Was Being Spun Around Hard To My Left. As I Caught My Balance, I Saw A Man Running Away From Me With My Purse.
I Looked Down At My Right Hand And I Saw That My Fingers Were Wrapped Tightly Around My Pistol. The Next Thing I Remember Is Saying Out Loud, "No Way Punk! Your Not Stealing My Pay Check And Tips."
I Raised My Right Hand, Pointed My Pistol At The Man Running Away From Me With My Purse, And Squeezed The Trigger Of My Pistol 6 Times!
When Asked By The Arraignment Judge, "Why Did You Shoot The Man 6 Times?
The Woman Replied Under Oath, "Because, When I Pulled The Trigger Of My Pistol The 7th Time, It Only Went Click."
The Woman Was Acquitted Of All Charges. And She Was Back At Work, At The Cafe, The Next Day!
pardGun Control Butte, Montana Style
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.
It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine.
Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.
When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.
It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0'Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.
Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news.........an 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself......against two murderous, illegal immigrants......and she wins, she is still alive.
Thought for the day:
Calling an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist'
Georgia college student saves 10 lives with gun; Ohio's defenseless students targeted by criminals
By Chad D. Baus. Submitted by cbaus on Fri, 05/15/2009
One of the principle claims made in Diane Sawyer's rigged campus carry experiment, recently aired on ABC's 20/20, was that having a gun wouldn't protect a college student, that ordinary people like college students aren't trained to handle stress, that they might shoot innocent people, and that the bad guy might take their gun away.
Apparently someone forgot to tell a student in College Park, GA that they were better off without having a gun ready at hand...and at least ten college students say they are alive today because of it.
From Atlanta, Georgia's WSBTV:
A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they're thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked men who burst into an apartment.
Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident.
"Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all," said student Charles Bailey.
Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.
"They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, Give me your wallets and cell phones,'" said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.
Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. "The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough," said Bailey.
The story says that's when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.
The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.
"Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window," said Bailey.
A neighbor heard the shots and heard someone running nearby.
"And I heard someone say, Someone help me. Call the police. Somebody call the police,'" said a neighbor.
The neighbor said she believes it was Lavant, who was found dead near his apartment, only one building away.
Bailey said he is just thankful one student risked his life to keep others alive.
"I think all of us are really cognizant of the fact that we could have all been killed," said Bailey.
One female student was shot several times, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Police told the media they are close to making the arrest of the second suspect.
Meanwhile, back in Ohio, officials at The Ohio State University say that the increasingly high level of street-level crimes - thefts, robberies, assaults and break-ins - n the University District is no coincidence. In fact, criminals are targeting students specifically because they know they'll be defenseless.
From OSU's The Lantern:
"What we're seeing is a shift into the university area where [criminals] are finding that students are an easy target," said Tom Wildman, the Code Enforcement & Safety Committee chair of the University Area Commission.
In the past six months, 680 street-level crimes were committed in the district, according to a Lantern analysis of crime data from crimereports.com, which takes its information from the Columbus Division of Police. These statistics include only the off-campus areas of the district, and not the OSU campus itself.
These numbers dwarf the statistics for Columbus' less densely populated core downtown area, which tallied 301 street_level crimes over the past six months, according to crimereports.com data.
Ohio is one of at least eight states that have had bills pending in the current legislative session which are designed to restore students' self-defense rights on college campuses.
Campus carry legislation has already been signed into law during the current legislative session in North Dakota. In Missouri, the House of Representatives has already passed campus carry legislation, and hearings are now being held in the Senate. A campus carry bill is currently stalled in Indiana's Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Oklahoma legislature allowed that state's campus carry bill to die for this session. Things are going better in the Tennessee House House Judiciary subcommittee, where hearings have been held on a Vol State campus carry bill. Hearings on campus carry legislation are also being held in both chambers of the Texas legislature.
Back in the Buckeye State, Rep. John Adam's HB129 has yet to receive a hearing. And the students of Ohio's campuses continue to pay the price in the loss of blood and treasure.

Executive Summary - The USA state of Montana has signed into power a revolutionary gun law. I mean REVOLUTIONARY.
The State of Montana has defied the federal government and their gun laws. This will prompt a showdown between the federal government and the State of Montana . The federal government fears citizens owning guns. They try to curtail what types of guns they can own. The gun control laws all have one common goal - confiscation of privately owned firearms.
Montana has gone beyond drawing a line in the sand. They have challenged the Federal Government. The fed now either takes them on and risks them saying the federal agents have no right to violate their state gun laws and arrest the federal agents that try to enforce the federal firearms acts. This will be a world-class event to watch. Montana could go to voting for secession from the union, which is really throwing the gauntlet in Obama's face. If the federal government does nothing they lose face. Gotta love it.
Important Points - If guns and ammunition are manufactured inside the State of Montana for sale and use inside that state then the federal firearms laws have no applicability since the federal government only has the power to control commerce across state lines. Montana has the law on their side. Since when did the USA start following their own laws especially the constitution of the USA , the very document that empowers the USA?
Silencers made in Montana and sold in Montana would be fully legal and not registered. As a note - silencers were first used before the 007 movies as a device to enable one to hunt without disturbing neighbors and scaring game. They were also useful as devices to control noise when practicing so as not to disturb the neighbors.
Silencers work best with a bolt-action rifle. There is a long barrel and the chamber is closed tight so as to direct all the gases though the silencer at the tip of the barrel.
Semi-auto pistols and revolvers do not really muffle the sound very well except on the silver screen. The revolvers bleed gas out with the sound all over the place. The semi-auto pistols bleed the gases out when the slide recoils back.
Silencers are maybe nice for snipers picking off enemy soldiers even though they reduce velocity but not very practical for hit men shooting pistols in crowded places.
Silencers were useful tools for gun enthusiasts and hunters.
There would be no firearm registration, serial numbers, criminal records check, waiting periods or paperwork required. So in a short period of time there would be millions and millions of unregistered untraceable guns in Montana . Way to go Montana !
Discussion - Let us see what Obama does. If he hits Montana hard they will probably vote to secede from the USA . The governor of Texas has already been refusing Federal money because he does not want to agree to the conditions that go with it and he has been saying secession is a right they have as sort of a threat. Things are no longer the same with the USA . Do not be deceived by Obama acting as if all is the same, it is not.
The fourth point of Philippians 4: 8 is whatsoever things are pure... Undefiled, Chaste. 1 Timothy 5:2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. Purity in our thoughts toward members of the opposite sex, purity in our words, purity in our actions. The meaning is obvious.
Just in my short time on this earth, the change of purity in women, and men, has been astounding. When I was in school in the 50s, girls would not even consider wearing anything but skirts and dresses that came at least to their knees. Now, women of all ages have have no shame in showing as much skin as possible, or clothing as tight as possible.
The runner-up in the Miss America pageant, Carrie Prejean, sees no double standard though she stood almost naked before the flesh judges, and professes to be a Christian.
"It's not about being politically correct. For me it was being biblically correct."
Miss California, Carrie Prejean, on the controversy over her statement in opposition to gay marriage in response to a question during the Miss USA pageant. (World, May 9, 2009, p. 17.)
Biblically correct... What can she say to the fact that she is told to dress modestly by God's word, 1 Timothy 2:9? She is now making the Christian talk show circuit, as they exalt her Christianity, though she has no problem appearing nearly naked in public. Is she not telling Christian women of all ages that it is OK to shed your clothing, as long as you do it in the name of Christ? It sure seems to me like the Methodist pastorette talking about Martin Luther King, jr doing all things for the glory of God, though he was a well-known adulterer.
Psalms 119:1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

You will find at least one of them in most churches - the eccentric guy or gal who is obsessed by just one issue and is raving about it all the time, to the extent that everyone else in the congregation regards him as bonkers.
In one church, there was a man called Jim whose obsession was male quartets. He was always babbling about getting up a male quartet, sometimes buttonholing first-time visitors to see if they would be interested. His preoccupation with the subject was regarded by the rest of us as an evidence of terminal and incurable insanity on his part.
THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER.
Then, at another church, there was Paul. His obsession was avoidance of germs, at any cost. He would go into a tizzy if anyone coughed or sneezed in his general direction.
On one occasion, I made the mistake of yawning in his presence, at point-blank range. "You yawned on me!" he howled.
Paul was the laughingstock of the church and he thoroughly enjoyed that role, at least until the day that a pastor removed him from the company of ushers. It was decided that his refusal to shake the yucky, germ-ridden hands of visitors made him unqualified to "ush."
FUN AND PROPHETS.
Then there are the Prophecy Buffs. Most Baptist churches have at least one of them. These are the folks that you can always hear grumbling, "We don't have enough preaching on prophecy in this church."
Their idea of good Baptist preaching is a steady, overwhelming diet of speculation on the meaning of 666 and the identity of the Beast, along with at least 50 news items each week that are considered to be a sign of the Second Coming.
You can hear them muttering to themselves about the things that they believe must happen before Christ can return. "We've got to get Armageddon going - Bring it on." "Two-thirds of all the Jews have got to die." "The blood has got to flow up to the horses' bridles."
They want to nuke Iran - or is it Iraq - they both sound so alike. They want to exterminate the Palestinians and blow up the mosque in Jerusalem. They want to start World War III to fulfill some obscure verses about Babylon, or Egypt, or Elam, that were already fulfilled 2500 years ago, give or take a few centuries.
After all the years of patient waiting and date-setting calculations and watching the "signs of the times," it is no longer enough to just wait for the prophetic jigsaw puzzle to fall into place on its own. They think we have to make it all happen. For some, it becomes an obsession.
SHIP OF FOOLS.
One of the comical characters in the 1964 movie "The Americanization of Emily," about the D-Day invasion, was a demented admiral who was known for constantly muttering, "The first dead man on Omaha Beach must be a sailor!" His maniacal manipulations, for the purpose of making that prophecy come true, provided ample belly-laughs and merriment for the audience. But that was only a movie.
What is not so funny is the modem-day televangelists, usually quite corpulent and flush with cash, who claim to represent millions of Prophecy Buffs and One-Note Charlies from the churches of America. They use their cash and clout to intimidate conservative Republican politicians into at least pretending to respect the agenda of the Armageddon Theology. A few Republicans are true believers in that stuff, while most just roll their eyes and call us "nuts" when we are not looking.
Most voters in the general public do not share the enthusiasm of the Prophecy Buffs for massive death, destruction and mayhem in the Middle East in order to fulfill bogus "Bible prophecies." This may possibly help to explain why a lot of conservative Republican legislators, who shared our views on such vital issues as abortion and the gay agenda, have been replaced by liberal Democrats.
Those liberal Democrats are a pretty scary bunch themselves. You can hear them going around muttering their own obsessive and terrifying mantras. For instance, you can hear them say, "Bring back partial-birth abortion." "Gays in the military." "Frankenstein experiments on embryos." "Tax the heating bills and gasoline of the poor to stop global warming." "Use Porkulus to inflate the money supply just like in Zimbabwe."
And perhaps most intimidating of all, "Redistribute the wealth of Joe the Plumber and everyone else who works for a living, and give it to the winos, welfare cheats, deadbeats, illegal aliens, and Communist agitators from ACORN."
I don't know how we are going to stop these folks. A lot of good conservative Republicans, who stood with us not only on the social issues but also on One-Note Charlie's prophecy agenda, didn't get re-elected the last time around. So now we are at the mercy of the liberals, many of them are just as crazy as Jim with his fixation on male quartets, only far more dangerous.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I am on the Moneynews.com mailing list. I received this notice, April 3, 2009. I realize Moneynews is selling books, but I have no reason to doubt the following "sales pitch." We should keep in mind that Obama has been a boon for the economy for every "right wing" organization. Newt Gingrich, as well as Ron Paul, is tapping into that gold mine. I may be able to support Ron Paul, but Gingrich?? One of Gingrich's fund raisers called, and I told her that if he is so interested in what is going on now, why was he doing the same thing when he was in office? She had no answer, and has not called back.
pardSales pitch: Social Chaos Survival Guide
INSIDER ALERT! On September 18, the entire U.S. financial system came within 3 hours of total and complete collapse. [Note that the collapse is not due to lack of regulation; rather, it was a lack of the regulators ignoring the problem. The only "regulation" that will work is to let the bad decisions come home to roost; let them fail.]
... A whole lot of already shell-shocked people are going to learn the hard way that the veneer of "civilization" is far thinner than most realize.
U.S. Preparing a Military Response to Coming Social Chaos
As the shocking confidential information contained in this briefing shows, the threat of social meltdown and chaos is so large a domestic law-enforcement arm of the U.S. military (referred to by The Army Times as the "Consequence Management Response Force") has been created to deal with what U.S. officials believe to be a coming, unprecedented wave of massive social chaos.
pardYes, U.S. Officials Are Quietly Preparing for BIG Trouble Ahead
A new report by the Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute states flatly the U.S. military must prepare for "a violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States" that could be provoked by "unforeseen economic collapse" or "loss of functioning political and legal order."
Late last year, The Washington Post noted the incoming Obama Administration is going to "earmark" at least 20,000 troops returning from Iraq to deal with "domestic emergencies." Since then, the Army Times has broken the story that the domestic emergency army unit has been increased to 80,000 troops, who are being trained right now in Georgia. [I remember the article, and believe I mentioned it in a past Examiner.]
In short, U.S. officials expect big trouble ahead but they are not warning the general public about the danger (much less urge the unsuspecting masses to make basic preparations).
A rare critic of the government's keep-the-public-in-the-dark mentality is former head of the U.S. Commission on National Security, Stephen Flynn. He noted in a recent Wall Street Journal editorial: "Too many officials believe telling the truth to Americans about the risk would set off a nationwide panic. Thus, they keep us sheep in the dark for our own good."
Boiled down, you need a real plan to deal with massive social dislocations that are headed our way. And you need to get started right now, because the government isn't going to give you a heads-up. ... [Purchase our book!]
[Some years ago, I put together the following article, and edited it some for now. You can date it by the men mentioned in it.]
We do not have to look far to see the chaos around us. Chaos in the financial institutions, banks and savings and loans. Chaos in the educational system. Chaos in the judicial system. Chaos in the drug situation. Chaos in the families between husband and wives (unwed parents), between parents and children, child abuse.
We have seen chaos in the stock market, housing and on the farms. Is there a meaning behind all of this?
If we will think for a moment, we can call to mind the answer which the social planners have for all of these areas which are in chaos. There are two answers presented to the public consistently. First, more money and spending, even though the spending is "borrowed" money. (Every American man, woman and child now owes more than $45,000 to someonethe FED and its fake money, China, Muhammadans, &c.each thanks to our elected officials and the FED.) Second, with that increased spending comes increased control. We need to start a new federal agency, new laws and regulations to work with this area or that area. (The federal government is the fastest growing employer today. From where does the money come? Note that the best law to bring everything under control is the one that works for you and me; that is, go broke.)
We see one of the answers being offered and accepted for the chaos in the educational system is more money. That money is then used to close down the local schools and build new schools farther away from the local community. Here we see a moving away from local which made this country so strong, to a stronger central control.
In all the financial institutions, the only option offered to control the chaos was increased federal regulations. We see suggestions how to handle the child abuse chaos with parent licensing, under federal control, of course.
As the chaos is being emphasized to the American public, stronger federal control of all areas is presented as the only solution. The American public is being convinced that the only answer is more control, and more social planning by the elite.
Moreover, notice that America is being convinced that it is necessary to use the US military rather than the National Guard to control social turmoil, which is a direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. Do we think that "chance" placed our National Guard overseas, while the regular Army returns to the states to prepare for civilian law enforcement? Social unrest is the responsibility of the state governors who are to control the National Guard, not the president.
Some years ago House Speaker, Jim Wright (Reagan Administration) made a statement concerning the planned chaos in Central America. The purpose of that planned chaos was so the federal government in D.C. could accomplish its goal there. He expressed great public indignation over that planned chaos, but did nothing to stop it.
It is a well-known fact that Lenin used planned chaos to bring about his revolution, and his followers (socialists of all nationalities) have used it very effectively ever since. Why did not speaker Wright declare an indignation over the Soviet's use of chaos to bring about their goals? Could it be that he was not indignant over the Soviets use of chaos to bring in their brand of Socialism (Marxism)? Could it be that he was only indignant when chaos is used to try to stand against Soviet expansion in Central America?
If the federal government will ferment chaos in a foreign country in order to obtain its goals, then what would prevent the social planners from fermenting chaos here to obtain their goals? Chaos which will drive the public, not only to accept, but even demand more government intervention, more socialism. The cry of the average man today as he is faced with any kind of chaotic situation is, "Why doesn't Washington do something?"
Every answer to every chaotic condition is always the same. More control by the elite planners, including "military" type control. This should show us exactly what has been planned for many years for this American Republic by those who consider themselves the Elite. Jim Wright sure considered himself one of these elite and above the law. What do you suppose he and those of his crowd have in store for the American Republic? "Amerika, the land of Socialism?"
Fraud: I do not necessarily like Bill Moyer, but this 30 minute interview is worth the time, as he deals with the banking "crisis."
Leading economist requests dollar protection larger than U.S. homes
Editor's Note: The following report is excerpted from Jerome Corsi's Red Alert, the premium online newsletter published by the current No. 1 best-selling author, WND staff writer and columnist. Subscriptions are $99 a year or $9.95 per month for credit card users. Annual subscribers will receive a free autographed copy of "The Late Great USA," a book about the careful deceptions of a powerful elite who want to undermine our nation's sovereignty.
A high profile Chinese economist has begun circulating a new plan under which the U.S. government would guarantee foreign investments, so foreign nations with large dollar holdings in U.S. Treasury debt could convert that debt into equity to buy and own U.S. assets or invest in the nation's infrastructure without risk of loss, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.
In the process, much of U.S. industry and infrastructure would be sold to the Chinese. ...
By TOM KRISHER, May 13.
DETROIT (AP) - As thousands of General Motors workers await word on more U.S. plant closures, reports that the company plans to import Chinese-made vehicles to the U.S. have created a political problem for the automaker and the White House.
The reports, which GM will neither confirm nor deny, could mean trouble because GM is supported by $15.4 billion in U.S. government loans, largely due to the Obama administration's desire to preserve the company's 90,000 U.S. jobs.
The United Auto Workers charged last week that the Detroit automaker intends to almost double over the next five years the number of vehicles it imports to the U.S. from Mexico, South Korea, China and Japan. ...
First, get out of debt, as much as possible and as soon as possible. Cut up credit cards, except maybe one for mail ordering. If nothing else, and if possible, borrow from a church brother at simple interest. It is fine to charge interest to those who are not in poverty. The interest free loans are to the poor among you.
The church could start a "loan" fund for those among you who are carrying a compound interest bank loan. Again, interest can be charged when applicable, or interest free when needed. No consumer borrowing, but we can help those who have "sworn off" of consumer borrowing, and are now trying to get their house in order.
Second, seek a "recession" proof occupation, or at least something on the side that can supply income when needed. Example: auto mechanics will always be needed. I realize these high tech autos require some newer tools, but even the "computer readers" are getting down to where they are affordable. Of course, there is a crying need for nurses, medical technicians and home care, and that need will increase as society moves further away from the Gospel.
Do some "brain storming" concerning self-employed occupations that can be done over the web, if nothing else.
Third, bartering. What skill or possession do you have that is needed by others and can be traded or even sold. These horrendous "bailout" programs will bring at the very least unheard of inflation, if not a total collapse of the US, bankruptcy.
Note: The bailout is with taxpayer money (four generations just to pay the interest at this point), and given to the banks so they can loan that confiscated money back to the taxpayer at interest. In other words, the government has a gun in your ribs, demanding your money. They then take that money and give it to banks so you can go borrow it, at interest, to see you through the tough times brought on by the theft of the "tax man." What is wrong with this picture?
There is, no doubt, far more involved here than what we are being led to believe. Write your congress persons. Go to www.congress.org, enter your zip on the right side, and your representatives will be displayed. There will be a contact "button" for each, which will take you to a place you can send an e mail. It is easy. Type up your "comments," and then copy and past the same to each representative.)
The recovery is not based on producing usable goods, for that has all gone offshore. The majority of the cars the "new" GM will make will be overseas China, Japan, Korea thanks to the tax payer.
This "bail-out" money is going to cause inflation to get as bad as was Germany's. It is just a matter of time. Have things and skills to barter with. As Franklin Sanders (The Moneychanger) says: "The only thing the FED has to deal with the problem is blarney and inflation (printing presses)." They are using both to try to calm the people. Most good men have a skill with which they can barter if needed. It would be wise for those men to do some simple things in the community to get known in the community for their skills. Again, I realize time is at a premium for family men, but preparation must be made.
Farmer's market? Families could take on some projects to sell at a farmer's market: maybe pastry or bread. That would let the families work together on common projects.
Fourth, arm yourselves.
Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
Every family should have at least one hand gun. They are becoming difficult to find. Also, the new ammo law, "ammunition accountability act", goes into effect shortly. Load up on ammo from places that will sell it without taking your name and address.
Everyone should have one shotgun in their homes. An 870 pump is good. Again, you will need ammo.
One long rifle with a good scope. Again, load up on ammo. Clip fed, "assault weapons" are the bad guys. Bolt action rifles are fine. Any good hunter knows what to obtain.
You can find used guns from individuals in a local trader publication. Some of the guns will be old enough there will be no records with them. Also, second time sellers sell guns to the purchaser with no "paper" trail.
Arms... If you hear of arms being confiscated, have some funerals. Bury them safely, so they will not rust, and in a location that will not be subject to a metal detector, such as under a metal post.
I have found that Wal-Mart is about the only store left with ammo, unless some small sporting goods stores might have some. I have been unable to find anything over the web.
I assume up here in WV that if someone comes searching for guns, they may not get out of these mountains. Guns are a way of life in the mountains. The dealers cannot keep ammo in stock, nor can they get more. (I spoke with a Methodist pastoret with four churches to watch after about the effort to remove guns. She said no one would get hers, and if "gun grabbers" would come into these mountains, they would not come out.)
Note that the US military has been training for the last 10 years for warrantless house to house search for weapons and gun confiscation. http://www.comeandtakeit.com/findmil.html
Pentagon Training 20,000 Soldiers to Work Inside U.S. By 2011 (http://www.pubrecord.org/nationworld/530-pentagon-training-20000-soldiers-to-work-inside-us-by-2011.html) The "Government that was for the people and by the people" is now at war against the people, and has been since Lincoln.
Fifth, make an appointment with your sheriff, and see where he stands on the gun and ammo issues, the house to house search (use the above article about Iowa as your concern), even home education issues. (Our sheriff said that if any one came looking for guns here, they would find none.)
Sixth, have at least 30 days worth of basic food for your family.
Seventh, community. One of the more distressing things today about the ease of transportation and being scattered, is that those with like minds live so far apart. Be always on the lookout for valuable information, and pool your knowledge. Surely, there is someone in your group who enjoys "trolling" the internet for what is going on.
I realize I am using Luke 16:9 out of its context, but it is wise to build friendships with the unsaved, as much as possible without compromise. Each one needs to be as good a friend of their neighbors as possible. At the least, every one should know all those within their block (or within seeing distance, in our case). When you bake bread, make an extra loaf each time, and visit a neighbor, and introduce yourself. Maybe take a couple of the older children with you. Try your best to be friends without having to compromise anything. The community needs to know you are not radical.
Bettie's son, David, had a very hateful neighbor across the road from him when he moved to PA. But over a year of being kind and taking maybe a loaf of bread to them when they baked, the man became a friend. In fact, this last fall, he told David that he could have all the grapes on a vine he had. In fact, he offered David the vine because he wanted to tear down the building it was on.
I believe the community is the more important thing. Gather some "how to" ideas about building community, even with the unsaved around you. I found in Indiana that the unsaved were more knowledgeable and interested in current events and how to prepare than were the Christians. Maybe send someone into the John Burch Society. There they will probably find folks of like mind in many of these things.
Eighth, get passports for all the family. Passports will let you enter other countries legally, but where to??
Ninth, be very "noisy" about issues that concern you as well as the general public. Write letters to the editor about issues at hand, including the gun laws. More people read those letters than read the rest of the paper.
E mail your congressman and senator about pressing issues, such as guns, "bail-outs", and many other things. E-mail is very easy to do. Go to congress.org and use their system. Maybe even have handouts concerning serious issues and what to do about them with names, phone numbers (toll free), e mail addresses, and your folks hand them out to those around them in the work place or wherever...
Someone needs to attend the city and or county council meetings to keep up with events. You can get an idea of what is coming on you at these meetings, and how to prepare or what to make a lot of noise about. The sheriff's department gets its funding from the county council.
Tenth, husbands must assure their wives that they have a plan or are working on a plan for her and her children's safety. Normally, do not load the wives with distressing details. They are not equipped by God to handle them, while men are. They need to know their husbands have things in hand, or are planning for their safety.
Singles or single moms in your fellowship? A family should take one under its wing, particularly a single mom.
Eleventh, because of the "planned chaos," there will probably be riots in the cities. The riots will be well organized, as they have been in the past, by those who want to see their goals established. There will be individuals assigned to challenge law enforcement so that marshal law will be enforced, and the military called out. There will be those assigned to burn buildings, assigned to loot stores, and assigned to do all the other things that go with riots.
Remember, the god of our age, Abraham Lincoln, suspended the Constitution in his push for war. (He wanted his tariffs enforced that he placed on the South.)
My former pastor also urged us to be 100 miles from the nearest big city.
Twelfth. Understand that, more than likely, there will be drug wars coming to your community or communities near you. The government has refused to stop the illegals from coming in. The planned result is that these illegals will create great chaos which will "need" a military presence in each community.
Where can we go?? As proved a few years ago by "Waco" and by "Ruby Ridge," if the oppressive powers want you, they will not only find an excuse to execute you, but they will find you wherever you are.
God placed us in this period of time, and we must rejoice. Psalms 98:2
Obviously, Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
I did not have enough men in Linden to do these things, so I did them myself. However, I did get some pagans who were concerned about the same social issues I was concerned about to attend the meetings. Then I had a print shop in the basement of the "school" building they wasted a lot of money to build years before I got there. I attended the council and commissioner's meetings, and used the print shop to make money on the side with commercial printing jobs, as well as to print material to keep the public informed.
The wicked who are in authority are taking counsel together, whetting their swords, bending their bows, and shooting at those who are trying to do right. They encourage themselves in their evil matters, and lay snares for whoever they can snare.
But the day shall come when God shall shoot at them. They will fall into the pit they digged for the righteous. Proverbs 26:27, 28:10, Ecclesiastes 10:8, &c.
Psalms 64:10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
The righteous can rejoice when the Lord strikes down the workers of evil.
Has not the dangerous food been coming from Mexico and China? Why is there no mention of protection from overseas food producers? The intent of all these new "laws" and regulations is obvious, and the intent is not to "protect" the American consumer. The intent is total control over the population here.
We would encourage everyone to take five minutes and watch this Christian-produced video. It describes the exploding Islamic population in Europe and America.
At present rates of population growth, all of Europe, Russia included, will be Muslim within less than 20 years. In 1970, there were 100,000 Muslims in America. There are now 9 million. Do the math and you get a quick picture of what the future looks like.
The American pulpit has been emasculated. It must change if Christianity is going to survive as the dominate religion of the West.
"The world is changing. The global culture our children inherit will be vastly different than what it is today. You are about to witness a report on the world's changing demographics." "In order for a culture to maintain itself for more than 25 years, the required fertility rate is 2.11 children per family. ..." The average in Europe is 1.38. A fertility rate of 1.3 is impossible to reverse in less than 80-100 years. Muslim nations are having 8.1 children per family. Europe is quickly turning Muslim. The US fertility rate is 1.6, but with Latino immigration, it is 2.11. The video is very distressing, particularly in light of Christians' hatred' or fear' of children. It is the influx of Papist Latinos that is keeping the US at the break-even point.
Go ahead, Christians: Stick your head in the sand. Sacrifice your daughters to the world's idea that careers are to be chosen over godly families. You are dooming your children to life in a Muslim country. Large, home schooled families may be the future's only hope.
Americas are terrorists if they own a bible, a pocket Constitution or guns, and still believe in Life, Liberty and Freedom. Obama and ACORN GPS is Marking EVERY Front Door in America. All who have been in the military can understand the importance of the exact coordinates, within 40ft., of the front door of every terrorist.
"No imagination is required to think up a whole laundry list of evil that could be done with a nationwide GPS grid of coordinate's markers painted on every private home across the country. But I was having trouble thinking up one good reason for it, even one legitimate use that would justify what must be a very expensive undertaking," he said.
"Why does the Obama administration need or want the latitude and longitude coordinates for every home in America? Why the rush to GPS paint every home in the next 90 days? Why must the marker be within 40 feet of every front door? For what possible purpose does the Fed need GPS coordinates for every home, and under what authority do they have the right? Census workers, whom I asked, had the same holy-crap look on their faces that I had by then," he wrote.

Renowned investor Jim Rogers says that the rally in stocks and the dollar will soon end, thanks to the Federal Reserve's massive easing policy.
"I'm not buying shares anywhere," he tells Bloomberg TV. ...
As for the dollar, "we're going to have a currency crisis probably this fall or the fall of 2010," Rogers says.
"It's been building up for a long time. We've had a huge rally in the dollar, an artificial rally.
The U.S. dollar is a very flawed currency."
Bonds also are overvalued, he says.
And where does Rogers see investment opportunities? Commodities, as he has argued for months.
"The only place I know where the fundamentals are getting better is raw materials," he explains.
"We're going to have serious food shortages. Prices are going to go through the roof."
Whether the economy rebounds or not, "commodities are going to lead it," Rogers says.
"Commodities are still the best place to be because supply is declining, and governments are printing huge amounts of money."
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, famous for his prescient financial forecasts, agrees with Rogers.
With governments around the world wildly printing money, gold and copper may "rally massively," he told a recent conference.

War Against Families, Men and Boys
Estrogens (U.S., otherwise oestrogens or strogens) are a group of steroid compounds, named for their importance in the estrous cycle, and functioning as the primary female sex hormone.
Estrogens are used as part of some oral contraceptives, in estrogen replacement therapy of postmenopausal women, and in hormone replacement therapy for transwomen. (Man to woman?)
Like all steroid hormones, estrogens readily diffuse across the cell membrane; inside the cell, they interact with estrogen receptors. Additionally, estrogens have been shown to activate a G protein_coupled receptor, GPR30. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
To keep from being inconvenienced by children, how many Christian women take the "pill"? The pill is made up of estrogen, as is hormone replacement therapy. My first wife used that therapy. After she got breast cancer, which can be "motivated" by estrogen, we asked the doctor, and he admitted that cancer was a possible side effect of that therapy.
Though the fact is well hidden from Americans, the estrogen from the "pill" and from the therapy has made its way "big time" into the water supply. As we see below, the estrogen stays in the water supply, even in the rain. (Why will not the radical environmentalists mention that estrogen is one of the most dangerous of pollutants?)
The result? An overabundance of estrogen intake by all. The result? Increased breast cancer and the feminazatin of boys and men.
Thus, not only do Christians generally despise children, but in their effort to avoid children with the "pill," they are doing their part to destroy manhood in America. With soy products and estrogen being forced upon the male population, is it any wonder that sodomy is a growing "curse" against men? No doubt some males are more sensitive to estrogen than are others. Thus, those sensitive ones are telling the truth when they say they feel like a woman trapped in a man's body. One of the men in our church is extremely sensitive to MSG. He can eat the same thing I eat that contains MSG. I am not affected, but the slightest MSG will make him sick.
No need to reinvent the wheel, so I reproduce this article. This article is good, and to the point.
The Part of Estrogen in the war against men.
Japan makes most of our birth control pills. Japan doesn't use birth control pills. The estrogen from birth control pills ends up in our water supply, evaporates right along with normal water evaporation, rains back into our water supply, and just continues to accumulate. I think this is why some American "men" [read: feminists] act more like women than women:
Sperm count decreased from 113 million per ml in 1938 to 66 million per ml in 1990. Male patients at a fertility clinic on the edge of London were more likely to have fewer, less active sperm if they drank water from the Thames Water company than if they drank water from outside London.
The drinking-water coming through the taps in London is reputed to have been through the system (including the toilet) 16 times before it makes it to the sea. And they call that progress and science _ JAH.
1 Timothy 5:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane [and] vain babblings, and OPPOSITIONS OF SCIENCE (knowledge) FALSELY SO CALLED: 21 Which some professing [to have] have erred concerning the faith. Grace [be] with thee.
Our science, so called, is killing us.
* Estrogen causes memory loss in women. * Estrogen lowers IQ of women. *Exposure to excess estrogenic compounds can cause developmental and reproductive problems in both sexes, but especially males. * Declines in sperm counts might be occurring because of a complex interference with hormones involving the hypothalamus in the brain and the pituitary gland. * Contraceptive pill ethinyloestradiol causes male fish to behave physiologically like females. * Endocrine disruptors are chemicals suspected of interfering with the normal functioning of sex hormones in humans. * Extra estrogen causes a 32% higher risk of breast cancer. * Compounds may persist within an individual or a population, or they may persist globally. * Average body weight of Americans increases almost 30 pounds.
Warring Against Ourselves En Route To Banning Yo-yos
I note without surprise that we wage war not just on Islamic terrorists, but on little boys who play cops-and-robbers. Yes. Listen:
(CNSNews.com, March 20):
"From California to New Jersey, public schools are banning the children's game of cops and robbers' and threatening students with expulsion. For example, at Lewis Elementary School in Fort Irwin, California, one father removed his nine-year-old son from class after the school principal threatened to expel the boy if he didn't stop playing cops and robbers on the playground."
Sheer idiocy. But there is more.
"[We have] suspended play when they're using imaginary weapons until the guidelines can be developed to help the staff differentiate between dangerous and imaginary play." This pearl of lucent sanity from Gary Thomas, the District Superintendent, who doesn't know the difference between "imaginary" and "imaginative."
This rigid, hostile, puritanical control of little boys is now national policy. Very, very bad, cops and robbers. It could be worse, though. Little boys might play Cowboys and Injuns. (They certainly couldn't call it that. Perhaps "Genderless Animal Care Technicians and Preternaturally Noble At-One-With-Nature Role Models" would do.)
One laughs, having no recourse, but it isn't funny. There is at work here something somber and ugly. It isn't just the schools. The country is eating itself, as if it had an autoimmune disease, as if undergoing cultural apoptosis. The political classes, using the minorities as bludgeons, and appeals to virtue as pretexts, seek to eliminate boyhood, the pursuit of excellence, the rewards of achievement, sexual identity, the family, religion, standards of honesty and civility, and personal responsibility.
Half-educated teachers practicing playground Stalinism are just a part of it, one front in a larger war.
What do we think we are doing?
It isn't politics as usual. Nor is it liberalism. In my lifetime, liberals have wanted to end apartheid, allow women to become chemists if they chose, ensure equal opportunity, permit the Pill, guarantee decent treatment of farm labor, and tone down a sometimes puritanical morality. None of this is evil.
[ Really? ]
European nations have embodied most of these ideas without ill effects. Practice has fallen short of theory, as happens in politics. Measures have perhaps been taken too far or not far enough. Civilized politics consists largely in fine-tuning the reasonable. Yet it hasn't been evil.
[ Really? http://jahtruth.net/politics.htm]
Current policy has become a twisted caricature of reasonable impulse. Affirmative action, an understandable if ill-advised idea, has led to the sclerotic hierarchies of a permanent caste system. Welfare has produced an eternal underclass. To ensure that things be decided without regard to race, creed, color, sex, or national origin, we insist that nothing be decided except according to race, creed, color..
To raise blacks, we lower academic standards for whites. Being against violence, we let Hollywood bathe children endlessly in moist brains-on-the-ceiling violence, treated with loving sadism. Then with an almost prurient squeamishness, we expel kids for playing "violent" boy games meanwhile encouraging girls to go into combat.
The nation has become a milkshake of confusion, hostility, and sexual antagonism, always disguised as something else. Note that while the schools punish little boys for playing soldier, adventure movies now routinely show women slugging men, kicking them in the crotch, or becoming naval commandos. The opposition isn't to violence, but to masculinity.
We become a nation of unmen and half_women. A man who publicly worries because a child says "bang," and then calls the police, must have painful problems of sexual identity. A normal adult who sees a boy doing something he shouldn't, which does not include playing cops and robbers, says, "Bobby, stop it." A male who can't do this, who has to have police support and sends the child for psychiatric treatment, has something wrong with him. So does a society that permits it.
The Soviet Union placed dissidents in mental institutions and drugged them into conformity. We do it to our children. The difference is.?
In the campaign of cultural self-mutilation, stated motives are seldom real motives. The news media lavish attention on child-molesting by Catholic clergy, while simultaneously advocating acceptance of homosexuality in Scoutmasters. A contradiction? No. They aren't against homosexual clergy because they oppose pederasty, but because they dislike Catholicism. They do not want homosexual Scoutmasters because they favor pederasty, but because they don't like the Boy Scouts.
If memory serves, the Scouts when I was one long ago said that a Scout should be: Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Does that not have a sun-lit, Fifties-ish, Normanrockwellian sanity that is a total reproach to our ghetto zeitgeist? A retro wholesomeness that makes the political classes cringe?
The desire to treat homosexuals decently was perhaps a manifestation of liberalism. To force the children of people you don't like into intimate association with homosexuals is a manifestation of hostility. Or are homosexual Scoutmasters thought to have a restraint that we deny in Catholic clergy?
On and on it goes. Are we nuts?
All of this is of course done in the name of this or that moral imperativejustice, equality, fairness, what have you. The country reels under the onslaught of malignant goodness. But do the metaclasses seek to put women in combat because they think women want to be in combat or because they detest the military, hate its conservatism and (once) unapologetic masculinity, and want to humiliate it?
The unspoken agenda to bring down the former United States as a cultural entity sluices through metagovernmental policy. Do they truly like blacks, or merely want to shove them down the throats of the hated white Europeans? To judge by policy rather than protestation, the political class holds blacks in contempt. Note that racial policy invariably assumes that blacks are helpless, shiftless, require hand-feeding, and cannot be expected to achieve. Our managers simply use them as a weapon for destroying the society.
All of this ties into the diffuse anger that eats away at the country. We are not a happy people. Racial animosity runs deep. Blacks don't like whites don't like Latinos. The hostility of women toward men corrodes society. The breakup of the family leaves children angry at they aren't sure what. It adds up. Over years one sees the public mood change. Road rage is rage expressed on the road, not caused by traffic. More and more I see people walking against street lights, deliberately forcing cars to stop. Manners deteriorate.
I think we're on the way out.
