The global conflict we find invading our own hearts and minds can be reduced to this ancient struggle: The law of love versus the love of law. The first defines an attitude of respect volunteered by caring individuals. The latter term embraces corporate processes imposing fear of the state demanding respect. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes declared, “This is a court of law, not a court of justice. “ What is the role of law?
“The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the state,” declared that old senator of the Roman Empire, Tacitus. The underlying foundation of American jurisprudence is Roman law, filtered down through the Holy Roman Empire via the “crowned heads of Europe” and the British Accredited Registry licensing attorneys to practice law. Many members of Congress are lawyers, and legislating law is their constitutional role. They will never even question when “enough is enough” in the proliferation of laws. An empire always seeks more jurisdiction, more profits. Aristocrat Winston Churchill noted, “If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy respect for the law.”
Some say the legal principles of western jurisprudence are rooted in the basic laws God handed Moses so long ago, The Ten Commandments. These precepts are engraved quite prominently in the U.S. Supreme Court, which has fallen far from them. Recall Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore being unjustly sacked for righteously upholding them a few years ago, despite God being honored in his state‘s constitution.
The “Rule of Law” implies principles that are consistent, transparent, and equally applied to logically structure an honest justice system governing a society. We suffer an obvious plutocracy now, a lawless state where the arbitrary rule of men reigns. True principles of justice are ignored, even mocked. Look at the fraudulent mortgage foreclosure procedures and federal seizure of businesses, no-bid multi-billion dollar contracts and bail-outs, the shady accounting, congressmen not even reading the bills they vote on, Supreme Court justices stating they will consider foreign laws in court rulings, Barack Obama’s outright refusal to uphold his duty under the Constitution, or prove himself eligible for the Office of the President. Our Bill of Rights has become alienable. We are now under total surveillance. We suffer rampant corruption in an openly fascist dictatorship of deceit, a nation ruled by corporatists. Bankrupting oppressive regulations and taxation is killing us, as rationed “Obamacare” will. Our industries are destroyed, our people unemployed. The list goes on and on and on… yet many fools still think they are free and protected by law.
Thomas Jefferson stated, “Laws are rules, made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for,” he said, “in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.” The law has become “silly putty” at the pleasure of elitists citing the “General Welfare Clause” or the “Commerce Clause”, etc. Legalese is intended to deceive the common man summoned before the bench.
Jefferson also noted, “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” Do you feel your rights are respected or violated?
The contest is whether Law is made for Man, or Man for Law, the State made for Man or Man made for the State. Will we be free people enjoying God-given rights as independent individuals in a government representing us by our consent, or merely wards of the state to be socially engineered en masse according to rules dictated by oligarchs via armies of corporate lobbyists? Are we to exist as citizens at liberty, or subjects of rulers? Will governments be operated by public servants or money masters? Are the nations properly comprised of human beings, or corporate entities? Will we have consistent Rule of Law or arbitrary Rule of Men? By what principles does human society progress in civilization?
It is a battle for minds, bodies, and souls. One side holds Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, the Law of the Jungle, “survival of the fittest”, a Marxist materialistic quest for power over others joined by fascists, progressives, communitarians, corporatists, all socialists revering empirical sciences. My side heralds Jesus Christ, the great champion of liberty who truly embodied God’s Word. He summarized the basis of law for a lawyer by saying “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” See Matthew 22:35-40. He also stated, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” in John 8:32. A battle rages between Good and Evil. Sophisticated barbarians practicing slavery and bloodshed use temptation, deceit, and violence, warring against us believing they must,“ do unto others before they do unto them, as he who dies with the most toys wins.” We prefer to practice peace and share love in a more spiritual worldview seeking a respectful, wholesome, joy among brothers and sisters transcending the material with an uplifting faith in our Creator. Death is but a door to eternal life.
Do we understand the difference between being civilized or barbarian? The difference is brotherly love, not clever schemes nor sophistication. Respect is integral with love, we all need it in some measure. The huge problem among us all, regardless of an ethnic culture, creed, or form of governance, is some people insist they must prevail over others with an arrogant air of superiority, and harness others in labor for monolithic dreams of grandeur. These are elitists, driven to satisfy insatiable egos. They habitually put others down and squash their dreams, robbing them of not only dignity, opportunity and wealth, but health and happiness, even life and liberty. They are simply incapable of love, being narcissistic psychopaths. These sociopaths are shielded by corporate facades to escape liability while they wield power and nurse their egos on public teats, making us bleed. Our fatal crisis is rooted in the evil “JUST US” system of deceitful legislation. Holding power by means fair or foul is often heralded as “a grasp for responsibility”. But it is all too often an elitist “responsibility for a grasp” trumpeted as public service for “your own good“. Freedom is not legislated. We will never obtain truth, justice, or liberty within Lucifer‘s system!
Prospects for selfishly obtaining evermore profits, perks, respect and status at large, more surveillance and data, more power and privilege to wield against us, only lures hordes of the worst personalities into the ranks of government. We must address this to formulate a just and secure basis from which to establish a state of freedom, rather than a state that is free and people are not. The flawed US Constitution had embodied some good biblical principles. But it obviously has failed to restrain government or maintain liberty for the people. Why? President John Adams does note, “Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” America is no longer a moral people and government disrespects religion.
We have been sold “a bill of goods”, starting with naïve children being taught the virtues of the Division of Labor in public classrooms where the Holy Bible, prayer, and God are prohibited by law. Division of Labor conceals the division of people, severs dignity from those not afforded “superior” status, and enslaves them in service to Mammon. The “public fool system” gave no warning of the extent that using the “coin of the realm”, or signing up for Social Security to join the work force, holds us liable to “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s…” as Christ said. The corporate empire deems itself as the “supreme being”, demanding we even give the state that which is due God. Proud corporatists, materialists all, reject any authority beyond their own, denying God exists. Did school kids hear even a suggestion of alternatives to the banking system of usury and taxation? Did the assuring Civics classes tell any truth of how American representative government really operates? Were the empowering principles of liberty ever taught?
We have been misled, deceived, about American history and the principles of liberty our patriot ancestors fought courageously to establish as our American Heritage. It is gone, squandered in confusion fomented by corporatists wielding carrots and sticks, fear and temptations. America was built upon principles of the Holy Bible, despite legal protests by the American Civil Liberties Union claiming a separation of church and state in law. The ACLU, founded by Marxists, deceitfully cites Jefferson in their war against God.
Would a Founding Father and president insisting upon a strict “separation of church and state” open the US Capitol and other federal buildings to host weekly church services? Jefferson did just that, and his diary noted his attending church services held in the US Treasury building. Pastor Roger Anghis wrote of this in part 7 of The Importance of History, at NewsWithViews.com. “A false history has been put in place,” Anghis said. The letter the ACLU cites is not completely revealed by them. “Our Founders saw it as it was meant by Jefferson’s statement in his response to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1801, and that was a total separation of any government control over religion. These two ideas are diametrically opposed to each other. The separation that Jefferson spoke of was an institutional separation, not an influential separation.” He says “U.S. Congressional Records (6/7 to 9/25 1789) clearly show the intent of the First Amendment. The federal government was not to allow a single denomination running the nation,” as European nations had permitted ecclesiastic authorities to rule them.
I also add that critics often claim Jefferson was a Deist who did not believe in a God who intervened in the affairs of men, or a redeeming messiah, Christ. It is true he practiced in some severe textual criticisms of scriptures. But he feared God’s retribution to the evils of this world, and referred to Christ as “Lord” frequently in signing letters.
The Bible cites boundaries between ecclesiastic and civil authorities. Anghis notes King Uzziah being struck instantly with leprosy in punishment for disobedience in usurping a priestly role in God’s Temple, as recorded in II Chronicles 26:16-21. When asked if paying tribute to Caesar was lawful, and shown a coin bearing Caesar’s image, Christ declared “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be God’s.” See Luke 20:22-25. Perhaps we should not use the coin of the realm, and not render tribute to the empire. Whose image do you worship? Perhaps that of Benjamin Franklin in your wallet?
The love of law exerted to coerce obedience to a multitude of rules was the realm of the Pharisees. In Revelation 2:9 Jesus said they were of “the synagogue of Satan.” Ancient scribes were what we would call the professionals, men of letters. Christ warned “Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; which devour widow’s houses, and for a show make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.” See Luke 20:46-47. Scribes used the rule of men to obscure the rule of law nature’s God had spelled out in stone. They burdened people for their own selfish profits, and privileges, seeking power. They held themselves to be superior, the “unwashed masses” as inferior people to be fleeced. Jesus blasted their “Laying aside the commandments of God,” in Mark 7:8, saying, “ye hold the traditions of men,” speaking of the rabbinical Talmud. It rules us “goy” to be mere “cattle” intended to serve Jews. Where is the love?
Does pride go before a fall? America has fallen to scribes’ love of law. We must get beyond the letter of the law and recall that the spirit of the law is righteous judgment conducive to wholesome loving life. It is rooted in God’s Holy Spirit, the Spirit of ‘76. Do you choose to abide with the power of love… or the force of law in “legal” processes?
“It is the law of love that rules mankind,“ noted Mohandas Gandhi. “Had violence, i.e. hate, ruled us, we should have become extinct long ago. And yet, the tragedy of it is that the so-called civilized men and nations conduct themselves as if the basis of society was violence.” Gandhi stated, “An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrests for its’ breach is more so.” The US courts incarcerate more people than any other nation; deny natural law and Nature’s God. Our American Heritage, our liberty principles for a just governance, are documented in The Declaration of Independence penned by Jefferson, not THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, long suspended since 1933. FDR imposed Admiralty Law that year with the War Powers Act portfolio, deeming the public to be enemies of the state by law in the “Trading With The Enemy Act”. Where is the love?
Do I call for a Theocracy in America? NO! But our American Heritage of biblical Christian doctrines for truth, justice, and liberty for all made America great and strong.
“A Christian nation is not demanded in scripture, “asserts James P. Harvey in part one of his eloquent Masters of Surreptitious Guile published in anationbeguiled.com. Christ is offering us salvation by faith, professed free of coercion. Harvey declares, “No person should fear being forced into becoming a Christian, but to be ruled by an anti-Christian government is sure to follow in the foot-steps of all governments that have surreptitiously metamorphosed into an oligarchy.” He says “An atheist can live and prosper among us without being oppressed as long as he does not demand his philosophy be accepted by everyone or by law, and it is not the object of the new framers to demand allegiance to Christianity,” in speaking of forming a new state, “as that is clearly not the objective of scripture.” Yet such “Diversity must conform to certain standards or chaos will rule.” He notes, “The astute Christian understands that diverse doctrine will only be tolerated as long as it is not forced on us, and therein lays the reason that our present Constitution is anti-Christian.”
This is why John Adams had said the original Constitution “was made for a moral and religious people,” as Christ’s tenets define a true libertarian, prohibiting fraud or force as “…faith worketh by love,” per Galatians 5:6 of the Holy Bible. America was known as a Christian nation by virtue of cultural influence, not by force of law imposed. Biblical principles were incorporated, but without citing chapter and verse in the US Constitution or statutes. As Samuel Adams remarked of the spirit, “…if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves.” Where is the love?
The Spirit of ’76 emanated from colonial churches where bold pastors laid God’s Word against the issues of the day, applying biblical principles to their world. They led patriots to cry “No king but Jesus!” in battling the British forces, insisting they live free or die! They knew Christ was the true liberator of the oppressed. Evil has engaged us by stealth, taken slaves, and “the wages of sin is death“! The battle is joined! Will you claim victory in Jesus? Where do you stand? Who do you serve? Live free or die!

Over the past several months, the American Policy Center (APC) has mailed more than 100,000 “Remove ICLEI, Restore the Republic Survey” to Americans across the nation. The mail package contained not only the Survey, but also a detailed report on Sustainable Development and how ICLEI (International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives) is being paid dues by local communities to impose this UN Agenda 21 policy.
ICLEI is now operating in more than 600 American cities – mostly in relative secrecy. More cities are being pressured to give ICLEI control of development policy making. In most cases that includes creating non-elected boards, councils and regional governments answerable to no one. City Councils and County Commissions, which should be answerable to the people, are now able to defer decision making to these non-elected bureaucrats, leaving the people without the ability to question or overturn policy. It’s the definition of a perfect“Soviet.”Yet most people had never heard of ICLEI or the power it holds over so many American communities. So, APC set out to change that, exposing the process and then asking Americans if they agree with such actions.
Since the mailings began, APC’s phones ring steadily with requests for reprints of the report. Moreover, it has sparked others to join the cause against Sustainable Development. More and more Tea Party rallies are featuring speakers on the subject. I am now giving more radio interviews andspeeches on the subject than ever before. Clearly, APC’s education campaign is having a dramatic impact on the effort to expose and stop both Sustainable Development and ICLEI. Below are the results of the Survey, so far.
Question 1: Have you heard the term Sustainable Development before?
Yes 38% No 57% Not Sure 5%
Question 2: Are you aware that Sustainable Development policy means severe restrictions on your local natural resources like water, and on private property use?
Yes 39% No 59% Not Sure 2%
Question 3: Have you heard of ICLEI?
Yes 23% No 75% Not Sure 2%
Question 4: Are you aware of ICLEI activities in your community?
Yes 5% No 91% Not Sure 4%
Question 5: Did you know that your community is enforcing international policy and laws, hiding them behind excuses like environmental protection and historic preservation?
Yes 10% No 78% Not Sure 12%
Question 6: Do you believe your community should be paying taxpayer dollars to an international organization like ICLEI to dictate local development policy?
Yes 2% No 95% Not Sure 3%
Question 7: If ICLEI is already in your town, do you want your City Council, Mayor, or County Commissioners to end its contract and stop paying ICLEI?
Yes 96% No 3% Not Sure 1%
Question 8: If ICLEI is already in your town, do you want your City Council, Mayor, or County Commissioners to continue its contract and allow ICLEI to proceed with its programs through non-elected boards and councils?
Yes 3% No 96% Not Sure 1%
Question 9: If ICLEI is not yet in your community, do you want your city leaders to allow them to get involved in your town?
Yes 2% No 97% Not Sure 1%
From the Survey responses, it’s obvious that Americans, when they know the facts, do not want international organizations pushing Sustainable Development on their community. Americans must get the facts and then confront their elected officials to stop these actions. The special report on Sustainable Development is available from the American Policy Center at 70 Main Street, Suite 23, Warrenton, VA 20816, or on the website at www.americanpolicy.org.
Greens on the run
A year ago, the Environmental Movement seemed on the verge of total victory. With Obama in the White House; Reid in the Senate and Pelosi in the House, it seemed nothing could stop them. Cap and Trade appeared to be a done deal. But today, even in the hottest summer on record and a massive oil spill in the Gulf, the Greens can’t get any traction for their once popular (now disgraced) cause. The Greens’ charges that big oil and industry have used their money and power to destroy the earth and stop vital environmental legislation, is falling on deaf ears.
The Greens have lied too many times and now their house of cards is tumbling with unprecedented speed. Their intimidation of editors of science journals to not publish anything but the party line has been exposed. Global Warming is a proven hoax. People around the world have clearly learned that the Green’s efforts to turn back society are not only costly, but unnecessary. The sky is not falling and it never was.
While American’s continue to ignore the obvious control that the media industry has over their world view, (the powers that be), continue to take control of every facet of our lives. If the reader of this article is unaware of the direction that their local government is taking them, then, (FREEDOM) as we have previously perceived it, will disappear without notice.
This IGNORANCE is your responsibility, the information is available from too many sources to deny it, and once freedom is lost, it will no longer be desired by the masses, as they prefer not to be bothered in their insane pursuit of entertaining themselves to death.

By Andrew Gavin Marshall
Global Research, October 19, 2010
The following is the text of Andrew Gavin Marshall's presentation at the book launch of The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century", Michel Chossudovsky and Andrew Gavin Marshall (Editors). September 29, 2010, Montreal, Canada.
We now stand at the edge of the global financial abyss of a 'Great Global Debt Depression,' where nations, mired in extreme debt, are beginning to implement 'fiscal austerity' measures to reduce their deficits, which will ultimately result in systematic global social genocide, as the middle classes vanish and the social foundations upon which our nations rest are swept away. How did we get here? Who brought us here? Where is this road leading? These are questions I will briefly attempt to answer.
At the heart of the global political economy is the central banking system. Central banks are responsible for printing a nation's currency and setting interest rates, thus determining the value of the currency. This should no doubt be the prerogative of a national government, however, central banks are of a particularly deceptive nature, in which while being imbued with governmental authority, they are in fact privately owned by the world's major global banks, and are thus profit-seeking institutions. How do central banks make a profit? The answer is simple: how do all banks make a profit? Interest on debt. Loans are made, interest rates are set, and profits are made. It is a system of debt, imperial economics at its finest.
In the United States, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, creating the Federal Reserve System, with the Board located in Washington, appointed by the President, but where true power rested in the 12 regional banks, most notably among them, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The regional Fed banks were private banks, owned in shares by the major banks in each region, which elected the board members to represent them, and who would then share power with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington.
In the early 1920s, the Council on Foreign Relations was formed in the United States as the premier foreign policy think tank, dominated by powerful banking interests. In 1930, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) was created to manage German reparations payments, but it also had another role, which was much less known, but much more significant. It was to act as a "coordinator of the operations of central banks around the world." Essentially, it is the central bank for the world's central banks, whose operations are kept 'strictly confidential.' As historian Carroll Quigley wrote:
"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations."
In 1954, the Bilderberg Group was formed as a secretive global think tank, comprising intellectual, financial, corporate, political, military and media elites from Western Europe and North America, with prominent bankers such as David Rockefeller, as well as European royalty, such as the Dutch royal family, who are the largest shareholders in Royal Dutch Shell, whose CEO attends every meeting. This group of roughly 130 elites meets every year in secret to discuss and debate global affairs, and to set general goals and undertake broad agendas at various meetings. The group was initially formed to promote European integration. The 1956 meeting discussed European integration and a common currency. In fact, the current Chairman of the Bilderberg Group told European media last year that the euro was debated at the Bilderberg Group.
In 1973, David Rockefeller, Chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan Bank, Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and a member of the Steering Committee of the Blderberg Group, formed the Trilateral Commission with CFR academic Zbigniew Brzezinski. That same year, the oil price shocks created a wealth of oil money, which was discussed at that years Bilderberg meeting 5 months prior to the oil shocks, and the money was funneled through western banks, which loaned it to 'third world' nations desperately in need of loans to finance industrialization.
When Jimmy Carter became President in 1977, he appointed over two dozen members of the Trilateral Commission into his cabinet, including himself, and of course, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was his National Security Adviser. In 1979, Carter appointed David Rockefeller's former aide and friend, Paul Volcker, who had held various positions at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the U.S. Treasury Department, and who also happened to be a member of the Trilateral Commission, as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. When another oil shock took place in 1979, Volcker decided to raise interest rates from 2% in the late 70s, to 18% in the early 80s. The effect this had was that the countries of the developing world suddenly had to pay enormous interest on their loans, and in 1982, Mexico announced it could no longer afford to pay its interest, and it defaulted on its debt, which set off the 1980s debt crisis – collapsing nations in debt across Latin America, Africa and parts of Asia.
It was the IMF and the World Bank came to the 'assistance' of the Third World with their 'structural adjustment programs', which forced countries seeking assistance to privatize all state owned industries and resources, devalue their currencies, liberalize their economies, dismantle health, education and social services; ultimately resulting in the re-colonization of the 'Third World' as Western corporations and banks bought all their assets and resources, and ultimately created the conditions of social genocide, with the spread of mass poverty, and the emergence of corrupt national elites who were subservient to the interests of Western elites. The people in these nations would protest, riot and rebel, and the states would clamp down with the police and military.
In the West, corporations and banks saw rapid, record-breaking profits. This was the era in which the term 'globalization' emerged. While profits soared, wages for people in the West did not. Thus, to consume in an economy in which prices were rising, people had to go into debt. This is why this era marked the rise of credit cards fueling consumption, and the middle class became a class based entirely on debt.
In the 1990s, the 'new world order' was born, with America ruling the global economy, free trade agreements began integrating regional and global markets for the benefit of global banks and corporations, and speculation dominated the economy.
The global economic crisis arose as a result of decades of global imperialism – known recently as 'globalization' – and the reckless growth of- speculation, derivatives and an explosion of debt. As the economic crisis spread, nations of the world, particularly the United States, bailed out the major banks (which should have been made to fail and crumble under their own corruption and greed), and now the West has essentially privatized profits for the banks, and socialized the risk. In other words, the nations bought the debt from the banks, and now the people have to pay for it. The people, however, are immersed in their own personal debt to such degrees that today, the average Canadian is $39,000 in debt, and students are graduating into a jobless market with tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars of student debt that they will never repay. Hence, we are now faced with a global debt crisis.
To manage the economic crisis, the G20 was established as the major international forum for cooperation among the 20 major economies of the world, including the major developing – or emerging – economies, such as India, Brazil, South Africa and China. At the onset of the financial crisis, China and Russia's central banks began calling for the establishment of a global currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency. This proposal was backed by the UN and the IMF. It should be noted, however, that the Chinese and Russian central banks cooperate with the Western central banks through the Bank for International Settlements – which the President of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, recently said was the principle forum for "governance of central bank cooperation" and that the G20 is "the prime group for global economic governance." In 2009, the IMF stated that the BIS "is the central and the oldest focal point for coordination of global governance arrangements." The President of the European Union, appointed to the position after attending a Bilderberg meeting, declared 2009 as the "first year of global governance." The 2009 Bilderberg meeting reported on the desire to create a global treasury, or global central bank, to manage the world economy. In 2009, prior to the Bilderberg meeting in fact, the G20 set in motion plans to make the IMF a global central bank of sorts, issuing and even printing its own currency – called Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) – which is valued against a basket of currencies. In May of 2010, the IMF Managing Director stated that "crisis is an opportunity," and while Special Drawing Rights are a step in the right direction, ultimately what is needed is "a new global currency issued by a global central bank, with robust governance and institutional features." Thus, we see the emergence of a process towards the formation of a global central bank and a global currency, totally unaccountable to any nation or people, and totally controlled by global banking interests.
In 2010, Greece was plunged into a debt crisis, a crisis which is now spreading across Europe, to the U.K. and eventually to Japan and the United States. If we look at Greece, we see the nature of the global debt crisis. The debt is owed to major European and American banks. To pay the interest on the debt, Greece had to get a loan from the European Central Bank and the IMF, which forced the country to impose 'fiscal austerity' measures as a condition for the loans, pressuring Greece to commit social genocide. Meanwhile, the major banks of America and Europe speculate against the Greek debt, further plunging the country into economic and social crisis. The loan is granted, to pay the interest, yet simply has the effect of adding to the overall debt, as a new loan is new debt. Thus, Greece is caught in the same debt trap that re-colonized the Third World.
At the recent G20 meeting in Toronto, the major nations of the world agreed to impose fiscal austerity – or in other words, commit social genocide – within their nations, in a veritable global structural adjustment program. So now we will see the beginnings of the Great Global Debt Depression, in which major western and global nations cut social spending, create mass unemployment by dismantling health, education, and social services. Further, state infrastructure – such as roads, bridges, airports, ports, railways, prisons, hospitals, electric transmission lines and water – will be privatized, so that global corporations and banks will own the entirely of national assets. Simultaneously, of course, taxes will be raised dramatically to levels never before seen. The BIS said that interest rates should rise at the same time, meaning that interest payments on debt will dramatically increase at both the national and individual level, forcing governments to turn to the IMF for loans – likely in the form of its new global reserve currency – to simply pay the interest, and will thus be absorbing more debt. Simultaneously, of course, the middle class will in effect have its debts called in, and since the middle class exists only as an illusion, the illusion will vanish.
Already, towns, cities, and states across America are resorting to drastic actions to reduce their debts, such as closing fire stations, scaling back trash collection, turning off street lights, ending bus services and public transportation, cutting back on library hours or closing them altogether, school districts cutting down the school day, week or year. Simultaneously, this is occurring with a dramatic increase in the rate of privatizations or "public-private partnerships" in which even libraries are being privatized.
No wonder then, that this month, the Managing Director of the IMF warned that America and Europe, in the midst of the worst jobs crisis since the Great Depression, face an "explosion of social unrest." Just yesterday, Europe experienced a wave of mass protests and social unrest in opposition to 'austerity measures', with a general strike in Spain involving millions of people, and a march on the EU headquarters in Brussels of nearly 100,000 people. As social unrest spreads, governments will likely react – as we saw in the case of the G20 in Toronto – with oppressive police state measures. Here, we see the true relevance of the emergence of 'Homeland Security States', designed not to protect people from terrorists, but to protect the powerful from the people.
So while things have never seemed quite so bleak, there is a dim and growing beacon of hope, in what Zbigniew Brzezinski has termed as the greatest threat to elite interests everywhere – the 'global political awakening'. The global political awakening is representative of the fact that for the first time in all of human history, mankind is politically awakened and stirring, activated and aware, and that generally – as Zbigniew Brzezinski explains – generally is aware of global inequalities, exploitation, and disrespect. This awakening is largely the result of the information revolution – thus revealing the contradictory nature of the globalization project – as while it globalizes power and oppression, so too does it globalize awareness and opposition. This awakening is the greatest threat to entrenched elite interests everywhere. The awakening, while having taken root in the global south – already long subjected to exploitation and devastation – is now stirring in the west, and will grow as the economy crumbles. As the middle classes realize their consumption was an illusion of wealth, they will seek answers and demand true change, not the Wall Street packaged 'brand-name' change of Obama Inc., but true, inspired, and empowering change.
In 1967, Martin Luther King delivered a speech in which he spoke out against the Vietnam War and the American empire, and he stated that, "It seems as if we are on the wrong side of a world revolution." So now it seems to me that the time has come for that to change.

THESE ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE
By Chuck Baldwin
October 20, 2010
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies."
I would argue that we, like our patriot forebears, have also endured "patient sufferance." For at least a half-century, we have patiently endured the erosion and abridgment of our freedoms and liberties. We have watched the federal government become an overbearing and meddlesome Nanny State that pokes its nose and sticks its fingers in virtually everything we do. We cannot drive a car, buy a gun, or even flush a toilet without Big Brother's permission. We are taxed, regulated, and snooped-on from the time we are born to the day we die. And then after we are dead, we are taxed again.
In the same way that Jefferson and Company patiently suffered up until that shot was fired that was heard around the world, we who love freedom today are likewise patiently suffering "a long train of abuses and usurpations."
In fact, I would even dare say that these States United have become a boiling caldron of justifiable frustration and even anger.
Accordingly, it is incumbent upon us to very seriously and thoughtfully examine those principles that we absolutely will never cede or surrender. We have already surrendered much of the freedom that was bequeathed to us by our forefathers. We are now to the point that we must define those principles that form our "line in the sand" and that we will not surrender under any circumstance. Either that, or we must admit to ourselves that there is nothing–no principle, no freedom, no matter how sacred–that we will not surrender to Big Government.
Here, then, are those principles that, to me, must never be surrendered. To surrender these liberties to Big Government would mean to commit idolatry.
It would be sacrilege. It would reduce us to slavery. It would destroy our humanity. To surrender these freedoms would mean "absolute Despotism" and would provide moral justification to the proposition that such tyranny be "thrown off."
* The Right to Keep and Bear Arms
Men without guns are not free men; they are slaves. Men without guns are not citizens; they are subjects. Men without guns have lost the right of self-defense. They have lost the power to defend their families and protect their properties. Men without guns are reduced to the animal kingdom, becoming prey to the Machiavellians among them who would kill them for sport or for their own personal pursuits. As King Jesus plainly ordered, "He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." (Luke 22:36) This we will do–at all costs.
* The Right to Own Private Property
Like the right of self-defense, the private ownership of property is a God-given right that is rooted in the Sacred Text. As God told Moses, "Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it." (Deut. 19:14)
In fact, the history of Western Civilization is replete with the examples of free men who were determined (even at the cost of their very lives) to defend the right to own property. Without private property rights, men are reduced to serfs and servants. Like chattel, they feed themselves by another's leave. This we will not do.
* The Right to Train and Educate Our Children
Education has never been the responsibility of the State. From time immemorial, education has been the right and responsibility of the family.
This, too, has its foundation in the Sacred Volume. "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Eph. 6:4)
Therefore, the absolute right of homeshooling or private/parochial/Christian schooling must never be surrendered. Homeschooling, especially, is fundamental to freedom. It is not a coincidence that throughout history, most totalitarian governments forbade parents homeschooling their children.
Any government–federal, State, or local–that forbids, or even restricts, the right of parents to homeschool their children has taken upon itself the uniform of a tyrant.
* The Freedom of Speech and Worship
Speech and worship are matters of the heart and conscience (Luke 6:45; John 4:24). Only tyrants seek authority over matters of the heart. But, of course, that is what tyrants do: they seek to control men's thoughts and beliefs.
Hence, the alternative media is essential to liberty: the Internet, short wave radio, as well as independent magazines and periodicals. It is almost superfluous to say that there is no such thing as a free and independent press among the mainstream news media today. In fact, the major media more resembles a propaganda machine than it does a free press.
The same can be said for most of the mainstream churches in America today.
They more resemble havens for politically correct, Big-Government ideology than they do bastions of Bible truth. Therefore, home-churches and non-establishment churches are increasingly requisite to a free people.
* The Right to Determine One's Own Healthcare
The marriage of Big Government and Big Medicine has created a healthcare monster. Already, the dispensing of medical treatment is micromanaged by Big Brother in a way that has resulted in skyrocketing costs and inferior care (and in some cases, even death). President Obama's universal health care initiatives that are sure to come (in one form or another) will only exacerbate an already untenable situation.
Free men and women absolutely have the right to refuse vaccinations for themselves and their children. Forced vaccinations (of any kind) are an assault against the very foundation of freedom. Free men have the right to choose their own physicians, their own hospitals, their own insurance programs, etc. They also have the right to refuse any and all of the above.
God is Creator. He is also Healer (Exodus 15:26). Therefore, how men choose to seek God's healing is a private matter between them and God. Alternative medicine is a right. Already, our military personnel are used as human guinea pigs to test a variety of drugs and chemicals. Public schools also require forced vaccinations. And now the push is on to force the general population to take the Swine Flu vaccine. At the current pace, it won't be long until all alternative medicines and treatments will be illegal and the federal government will be America's doctor. This is not acceptable.
* The Right to Life
2000 years of Western Civilization have perpetually reconfirmed that life is a gift of God. Both Biblical and American history repeatedly honor God as the Source and Sustainer of man's existence. Therefore, evils such as abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia must be vehemently resisted. It is bad enough that any government (especially one such as ours) would legalize abortion, but the concept of FORCED abortion, infanticide, or euthanasia could only be regarded as a despotic attack on life and liberty of the gravest proportion. In fact, under Natural Law, such an attack would remove said government from the protection of Heaven and would place it in a state of war.
* The Right to Live as a Free and Independent People
God separated the Nations (Genesis 11). Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that we Americans maintain our independence and national sovereignty. We simply cannot (and will not) allow ourselves to become part of any hemispheric or global union.
There they are: seven freedom-principles that are not negotiable. As Jefferson said, we are "disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable." But cross these lines and free men must do what free men must do: "throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." © 2010 Chuck Baldwin – All Rights Reserved

MASTERS OF SURREPTITIOUS GUILE
By James P. Harvey ANATIONBEGUILED.COM
Lets look a little closer at the popular idiom, “The separation of Church and State”, while considering Christ’s command to “give unto Caesar, what is Caesar’s, and unto God’s what is Gods.” If we separate the Church from the State, then there is no room for Godly men in Government, and we will have to contend with living under the tyranny of the self-righteous ruling class, who are convinced they alone know what is best for humanity. Hint! (They are humanity, and we are useless eaters). Got that? This is what we’ve had from the get go!
Now, if only men of extraordinary intellect, who had lived their life in obedience to the Scriptural requirements for Preachers, Teachers, Elders, and Deacons, wrote a New Constitution; would the Church be separated from the State, or would the Church be the State? Presumably, the New Constitution would set standards of government requirements in writing ALL LAW, and only moral laws would be allowed. This of course would eliminate all monopolistic businesses, abortionist, income taxation, and a host of other things that theologically astute Christian’s would approve of. I can just see the long line of Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and atheist waiting for their expatriation papers. YIPEEEEE!
No more TV ads that sell condoms, sanitary napkins, or pills that redirect your blood supply between your legs. No more corporations financing our elected representatives, only politicians intelligent enough to write a book on their comprehension of the New Constitution would be candidates for office, our police departments would have to abandon the practice of extortion, the full list would be a joy to read by all who are down right sick of the putrid lifestyle we have accepted as normal.
There would be an even longer line of obtuse wanabe Christians packing up to relocate someplace where they could legally redefine Scripture according to their denominational definitions, such as, we deserve an abundant lifestyle in this life. Our New Constitution would not have to take much away from people to make them head for the hills, because by far, the majority are theologically narcissistic.
So, if the New Constitution was really compliant to scripture, and we consider ourselves Christians who send the best and brightest to run our civil government, what’s to fear? OR, do you still reject God as our real ruler? Personally, I would welcome the assistance of law in keeping me on the straight and narrow path, because just like you, I’m a depraved sinner by nature, and need all the help I can get. Bottom Line, get rid of denominationalism and get back to studying scripture. Diversity has no place in Christianity, as God is and will remain immutable.
I know all about the propagandizing the media industry has frighten you with concerning histories claims of Christian tyranny, but just for a moment, wake up to the fact that America has been lied to from the get go, especially concerning the Christian faith. We can read, and we can think, and we can demand our freedom without fear of death, because death is just a door we must pass through on our way to life everlasting, so we have nothing to fear but GOD.
Do you remember reading about, fearing God is a sign of wisdom? Well, would you rather be stupid? Let me tell you something from personal experience. All men would appreciate their wives a lot more if they were not constantly comparing them to the half, or completely naked tramps on the boobs tube. Whose morals do you want to live by? Jesus Christ is supposed to be an example to live by, and it’s clearly written in Scripture. OR, is it more important to not offend the ungodly? Yea, you go right on and give unto Caesar what is his.
Did it ever occur to you that what He meant was to give Caesars coins to him, and not use them anymore? Currency should be equal to a defined amount of life sustaining commodities, not gold, silver, or some other object of worship. If a determined amount of life sustaining commodities were assigned a certain amount of electronic credits, commerce could flourish as long as people were hungry, and protected the right to have private farms, which is presently being outlawed by the ungodly banker’s minions better known as Monsanto’s Muppets. Of course those credits I mentioned would have to be administered by an agency far removed from banking, as we know it. Such agency could charge for account keeping and transfers, and make a tidy profit.
If you are capable of understanding Walter Burien’s concept of governments handling of money, go to http://www.cafrman.com/ or here. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2860538828528453481#
and discover a real genius concerning money, taxes, and government. The bottom line is, we can do a lot better with a new system of government, and now you know what happens to a government without Christian morals.
In part three, I will be comparing the similarities between the demise of the Christian Church and the demise of the United States of America as you thought they were supposed to be. Until then, go with God, AND REMEMBER, NOTHING IS SAFE THAT RICH MEN CAN MANIPULATE.

The idea behind the “Best Practices” barrage is to end the knowledge that has been passed from one generation to the next about how to manage lands, crops and animals and/or how to harvest, store and preserve food supplies. This is a collective knowledge, the possession of which is invaluable if we are to survive. Our farmers and ranchers know far better how to manage their land, crops and animals than some desk jockey in the UN or in Washington D.C.
Environmentalists, the Green movement, and various other groups dedicated to protecting and preserving the earth and its inhabitants, was, initially begun as a result of the plunder and destruction resulting from the willingness of governments around the world to allow the decimation of the environment for corporate profits. The environmentalist movement has been virtually taken over. What it represents now in many areas is the facilitation of the decimation of our rural communities and is the UN Agenda 21 plan for seizing all lands, water and food production to be owned and operated by the corporate state.
While those involved in this movement believe they are working to protect the earth, the environment and its wildlife, the catalyst behind the movement has become Agenda 21 from the UN. This Agenda specifically sites land ownership as a source of wealth and one that should be held only by the state. The rationale for this is that land ownership signifies wealth of some level, and this level can vary radically from one individual to the next and that is, for some reason, not fair……so the state should own everything and that way no one but the state has any wealth. One of the cleverest and most successful coup’s ever implemented was the co-opting of true environmentalists into the “sustainability/Smart growth” Agenda 21 program.
While I do believe that we should take care of our environment, our wildlife and our waterways; handing these assets over to the government to sell off to corporations to plunder and abuse while simultaneously and falsely claiming they are protecting the environment, will produce nothing but devastation. All across our country we can see the rapid deterioration of land under government control now exploited and plundered; the water systems polluted beyond reclamation from endless strip mining, gas and oil drilling and rendered unfit for any further use.
The surest way of impoverishing a nation is to take away property rights, especially those that are held for agriculture. Every effort has been made by successive congresses and administrations for the last twenty years, to reduce the full rights and enjoyment of private property ownership or to eradicate or make it impossible for our farmers and ranchers to continue in their businesses. To facilitate this theft of agricultural lands and use, the USDA and the FDA have been invaluable. These two agencies, both privately held corporations, are not public service agencies as we are supposed to believe. The job of both agencies is to implement Agenda 21, including the infamous Codex Alimentarius through the construction of barriers to trade, business and arbitrary regulations and rules that have been shown time and again to be constructed for no other reason than to make the continuance of independent agriculture, impossible, while at the same time making the industrialization of agriculture ever more possible through various programs, special provisions and exemptions from burdensome regulations that are aimed at eliminating as competition in the markets.
On the issue of trade, I find it rather strange that the incessant bleating from corporate America regarding free trade never includes the right to free trade within the agricultural community unless that trade is plied as an industrialized corporate operation. For the family or independent producer, the right to trade freely has been made virtually illegal.
Premises ID and the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) both have their origins in Agenda 21. Both of these schemes are intended for no other purpose than to swindle agricultural and livestock producers not only out of their land, but also to the rightful ownership of their livestock; all of it to now be owned and controlled by agencies on behalf of the federal government and in compliance with agenda 21. After all, what is the point of stealing someone’s land if you can’t also steal the benefits and produce from it?
Anytime anything arrives at your door with “Best practices” on it; that is Agenda 21/Codex. Best farming practices? Best land management practices? These practices are far from the “best”. They are a reduction in known standards for healthy and safe food sources; this reduction in standards and methods in agriculture is for no other purpose than to set the lowest standard possible to make industrialization of agriculture more easily accomplished and more profitable for corporate raiders.
The idea behind the “Best Practices” barrage is to end the knowledge that has been passed from one generation to the next about how to manage lands, crops and animals and/or how to harvest, store and preserve food supplies. This is a collective knowledge, the possession of which is invaluable if we are to survive. Our farmers and ranchers know far better how to manage their land, crops and animals than some desk jockey in the UN or in Washington D.C.. Every effort is made by USDA and the FDA along with other agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency to disparage and condemn and to cast into a negative light the farming and ranching practices that have sustained this country over time. For some reason if the government isn’t telling ranchers and farmers how to manage and care for their lands, crops and animals, the food system might not be safe. The fact is, under the constant dictating by government of land, crop and animals, our food system has become so toxic little of it is fit to eat.
Our farmers and ranchers here in the US know their business. They have had to acquire knowledge about soil, crops, livestock, harvesting, storage and this has been a knowledge base that did not need government interference. These people know how to care for the land and their animals.
Historically we know that no nation can survive economically without a strong and independent agricultural sector and yet we see every effort by our government over decades to destroy that sector. The Russian Holocaust (The Holodomor) of the 1920’s wherein an estimated 20 million people starved to death at the hands of their own government, while grain stores were burned and all food produced was controlled and owned by the government and exported while the locals starved to death and some even turned to cannibalism, has become a very real possibility, worldwide.
The ability of a nation to feed its own people from its own food stocks produced by its own farmers and ranchers, is an indicator of a strong and viable economy in which every individual benefits. Every dollar spent in agriculture generates upwards of seven dollars in the economy.
The CAFO farms and industrialized agriculture based on administration of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, hormones, vaccines, antibiotics and the utter inhumane treatment of animals for a quick profit not only harms the environment, but also the overall health of the consumers of these products and is not indicative of a strong agricultural sector. This is corporate industrialized farming and ranching and returns little benefit on any level either to the consumer or to the economy as revenues of these operations are off-shored to various corporate coffers in far away places. All this is done for the “greater good” of course; the greater good actually being the greater accumulation of wealth for those who take ownership and control of the lands; those individuals and corporations at the top.
Sustainability? Smart Growth? Nothing more than the Agenda 21 plan for ending private property ownership across all nations, and a method of systematically working towards that end by adopting “international standards” not at all conducive to the maintaining of private property rights. How many groups and organizations jumped on the sustainability band wagon either not realizing it was meant to end private land ownership, or not caring that it was intended to do so?
The purging of rural communities using land stewardship programs, conservation programs, wildlife preservation programs, wildlife corridors programs, international property codes, rezoning efforts, or the attempts to construct a fictionalized difference between a newly created “rural lifestyle” and a farm; all based on some arbitrary line of financial division. This construct is based on the amount of sales generated from the land. Not generating enough sales from your agricultural property can result in your property being determined to be a “rural lifestyle” as opposed to an agricultural based business. Under this new redefinition of your small farm as simply a chosen “rural lifestyle”, new rules, taxes, codes, statutes and regulations are written, redefined, constructed, implemented and enforced with no other intention than to make your continued occupation of your land untenable.
Another method of land theft, and one that has proven invaluable to government as was recently evidenced in the leaked memo from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is to redefine lands intended for government theft to be designated, “National Monuments”. Another aspect of this lucrative plan is the expansion of national forests, national parks, wildlife preservation areas; all of these redefinitions of “public lands” will culminate in the theft of an additional 13 million acres from private land owners in eleven of the Western states. This additional 13 million acre land theft when added to the land already claimed as owned by the BLM or managed by it, in those same states, expands the areas controlled by the federal government via its privately owned corporate agencies, significantly.
I find it not at all coincidental that these enlargements of, claimed lands creates a map of federal land ownership that is nearly identical to the UN Biodiversity Zones map. The UN map is comprised of the areas marked for non-human habitat and the designation of sequestered population centers where the population is to be herded into and held captive.
It seems we are at a crossroads here in the US. We are going to either be sucked further into the abyss that is Agenda 21 and forfeit our land, food and water to a greater “global purpose”, or, we will stand up and push back against the planned forfeiture of all these things meant only to profit multi-national corporations while being sold a bill of goods about what is supposedly good for us. We know what is good for us; and it doesn’t come from some UN corporate plan for controlling the world’s populations.

A NATION BEGUILED
10 11 10
In our Nation: that we have loved so much and so long, masters of surreptitious guile have ruled over us and infected millions with intellectual atrophy. Why do we still have illusions of great men rising to defend liberty when we have had so much evidence of democracy being the cesspool of humanity? Faith and hope is undeniably not applicable to democracy, so how then can we obtain a peaceful co-existence with our neighbors, when our politicians demand we accept their world view? How much proof do we need to ascertain we are insisting on something that will never be? I for one will never accept and obey laws that require me to disobey those clearly written in Scripture, and I care not who writes them. Neither will I show respect for any man who uses his government office to deny me the right to discipline myself. I will not accept guidance from ungodly men!
Now, one would think from the above paragraph that I have made it clear: I will never be a contributing participant in a democracy by any other means than physical defeat, and even then I will lie in the weeds until I heal or die. Such is the conclusion I have reached from seventy long years of being subjected to an absolutely ludicrous and tyrannical republican democracy.
SO WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
Number one is clearly to find men of like mind who have the intellectual acumen and education necessary to articulate in writing a new form of government that is comprehensible to all but the dull and ignorant, as only force will ever contain them in society, and they must be excluded. To be unequally yoked is to deny the wisdom of Scripture clearly articulated in Amos 3:3 (Can two walk together, except they be agreed?) I might add that separation of cultures is clearly demanded throughout Scripture, and humanity has experienced nothing but chaos from ignoring it. Much more needs be said on this subject so as to include children and those who are compliant, but without destroying the intent of constructing a united society. This is the justification for soliciting the best and brightest, and demanding of them proof of a full comprehension of their responsibility.
AM I DEMANDING A CHRISTIAN NATION?
Absolutely NOT! A Christian nation is not demanded in Scripture! Only the theologically obtuse wanabe pew warmer Christians are unaware that is not a Scriptural social requirement. One must be aware that Christianity has been so theologically fragmented by obtuse Christians and the media industry, so that a societal misrepresentation has become a false truth. No person should fear being forced into becoming a Christian, but to be ruled by an anti-Christian government is sure to follow in the foot-steps of all governments that have surreptitiously metamorphosed into an oligarchy. Again, much more needs be said on this subject, but this essay is not the place to address it. Suffice to say, my objective of finding like minded men will not be an easy endeavor, and to my close and intellectually superior friends, you have made it clear that you do not really understand Scripture.
AM I DEMANDING A UNION OF RELIGIONS?
Give me a break, and stop reading here, because your mind is unprepared.
WHAT ARE THE NEW FOUNDERS REQUIREMENT?
Only the most theologically astute and intellectually superior MEN will be able to recognize the wolves among them, and have the courage to expel them before a unified mind and objective can exist. Consequently this endeavor will confront many obstacles before progress can be made, and principals established. Among those principals will be the preservation of freedom from an oppressive government so clearly defined that tyranny will have no safe place to rear its putrid head without losing it. This is not a job for the inexperienced or narcissistic man who wants to be adored.
It needs be recognized that this instrument will have to protect those who are not able to accept Christianity, but are required to understand, and to agree on its value to their freedom from tyranny, if they are to be equally yoked. A house divided will be a horrible place to reside in. An atheist can live and prosper among us without being oppressed as long as he does not demand his philosophy be accepted by everyone or by law, and it is not the object of the new framers to demand allegiance to Christianity, as that is clearly not the objective of Scripture. If certain moral principals are offensive to anyone, they are free to find and live under a Constitution better suited to their philosophy, and THAT is the over-riding objective of this new form of government. You are free to leave, but you are bound by it if you stay. Diversity must conform to certain standards or chaos will rule. I could rail forever on this subject because it, more than any other false doctrine has contributed more to the destruction of freedom than all other lies ever invented. The introduction of the obedience to diversity, as the standard of humanity, by the powers that be, is the works of the most atrocious and perverted minds in history. The astute Christian understands that diverse doctrine will only be tolerated as long as it is not forced on us, and therein lays the reason that our present Constitution is anti-Christian.
This new Constitution will proudly, and profusely, proclaim that it has been influenced by Christian Scripture and the doctrines therein for the Glory of God, the preservation of Christian morality, the love of individual freedom, and with no apologies to anyone. We are not Americans: we are Christians! If the reader is so theologically obtuse to perceive this as a threat, so be it.
This new Nation, State, or whatever it is to be called must reject all previously recorded law, and start afresh with the Commandments given in Scripture as the basis of a new Constitution, and design a form of government that has scripture and experience as their guiding light in its design. Such a job as this can only be accomplished by an over powering desire to honor the Glory of God, and the preservation of a land where we can remain free of the influence of evil international bankers and their evil corporations. Humans cannot have two rulers as they will follow one and reject the other. Such is the result of having abandoned Christian doctrine.
NO MAN IS FREE IF HE CANNOT DEMAND HIS RULERS ATTENTION!
Only God is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent, therefore humans must deny being sovereign and be content to negotiate their differences of opinion with peaceful cohabitation as their objective. If we cannot, or will not, confine ourselves to that goal, a few history lessons will remind us of the atrocities human beings are capable of and chaos will reign as it has every since man rejected the Lord God as his rightful ruler. I cannot imagine why any person could not understand this simple concept.
ONLY GOD HAS THE RIGHT AND POWER TO REJECT OUR ADVICE!
