- Hebrews 3:1-15 "Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers
of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest
of our profession, Christ Jesus; Who was faithful to Him that
appointed Him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. For
this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch
as He who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all
things is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house,
as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be
spoken after; But Christ as a son over His own house; whose house
are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the
hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To
day if ye will hear His voice, Harden not your hearts, as in
the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty
years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said,
They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my
ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart
of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one
another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be
hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers
of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast
unto the end; While it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice,
harden not your hearts, as in the provocation."

- :WYCLIFFE BIBLE TRANSLATORS
:: The following is a book review by Sarah Leslie, editor of
the Christian Conscience magazine. The book "Thy Will Be
Done" reveals the exploitation of a respected missionary
organization, Wycliffe Bible Translators, by Nelson Rockefeller
and the CIA for the purpose of gaining control of the resources
of indigenous populations in South America. According to Sarah,
the book also includes information on Wycliffe's involvement
in Africa and Southeast Asia that was simultaneously occurring
and interconnected with the South American situation.
:: This documentary provides disturbing evidence that global
planners are using the modern missions movement as an agency
of the New World Order. The data-banking techniques mentioned
as having been developed by Wycliffe's founder are widely employed
today by the A.D. 2000 global missions movement. These data-gathering
operations are also a means of supplying computerized information
on individuals to globalist organizations for future genocide
and domination of the world's populace. 8.7.97 - Barbara Aho

(May 1995) - ASIN: 0060167645
- Editorial Reviews:
:: Amazon.com: This extraordinary saga moves from the Oval Office
to the Amazon rain forests to show how Cold War intrigue linked
a powerful American family, the U.S. government, and a missionary
organization in a forty-year campaign to conquer the Amazon.
At the heart of this story are two intensely ambitious men: Nelson
Rockefeller, scion of the liberal and immensely wealthy Standard
Oil family, and William Cameron Townsend, founder of the ultraconservative
Wycliffe Bible Translators. Although leaders of opposing camps,
they found common cause in the struggle against fascism and then
communism, with the result that hundreds of thousands of Amazonian
tribespeople died or were displaced. The systematic campaign
of colonization fathered by Rockefeller and Townsend was a chilling
foreshadowing of American intervention in the Third World to
secure valuable natural resources in the name of democracy.

priests to different regions and paying millions $ to silence
victims. See following report:
- RAELIAN MOVEMENT FILES COMPLAINT WITH UNITED NATIONS ABOUT
::October 16, 2002 - Geneva, Switzerland: The Raelian Movement
and its attorneys have filed an 'Urgent Request for Action' with
Mr. Miguel Petit, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the sale
of children, child prostitution and child pornography to further
investigate and stop the countless crimes of not only pedophilia
by priests and bishops, but the procurement, trafficking, &
abuse of children worldwide. The Raelian 'Urgent Appeal' which
was lodged at UN Headquarters Geneva on October 1 and is in transit
to Mr. Petit in Uruguay was according to one UN official, the
first complaint filed with the UN about the Vaticans involvement
in an international child sex scandal, 'There has been a lot

child abuse issue.' A copy of the Urgent Request for action filed

LAW BY COVERING UP CRIMES
::The Vatican violated international law by covering up their
crimes through reassignment of pedophile priests to different
regions and paying $ millions to silence victims, the Vatican
is in direct violation of treaties they have sworn to uphold:
1) the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)
2) the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the
Child on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography
- Will the power of the Vatican to influence the world to ignore
these crimes stop at the U.N.? Or will the U.N. be able to turn
away from the thousands of documented facts, including signed
treaties by the Vatican?
- :: Furthermore, the Vatican holds an official observer status
at the U.N., another 'privilege' it enjoys since it does not
possess any of the normal aspects required by every other government.
The Vatican claims that its sovereignty is based upon the Roman
Catholic Church's conception of itself as a sovereign entity
on par with secular sovereign states. No other organization is
allowed this status by just claiming sovereignty. The truth,
however, is that its power comes directly from its cultural domination
and annihilation of countless indigenous cultures, which will
also be brought to the U.N. soon.

my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee
from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler

took us from a place of sin and death, to a place of victory.
He traded our sins for His righteousness, our death for His life,
our defeat for His victory.

that is probably not the way Bush and his sycophants in the leadership
of the church are going to view matters. And in connection with
this, it probably has not gone unnoticed by the "powers

Freemasonry, in its present form, came into being through the
Lodge system, established under the auspices of King James VI
of Scotland, (later King James I of England), the only son of
Roman Catholic Mary Queen of Scots. At the age of 37, two years
after becoming a Mason, James became the first Stuart king of
England and immediately began to persecute the Puritans, rejecting

and Perth in 1601, at the age of 35. Fifteen years after taking
active control of Scotland and five years before becoming English
monarch, he ordered that the Masonic structure be given leadership
and organisation. He made a senior Mason, named William Schaw,
his General Warden of the Craft, and instructed Schaw to revamp

Masonic Lodge system, detracts from the validity of this outdated

- BONO WANTS TO DO GOOD -- WITH YOUR MONEY.
:: Friday Church News Notes, December 27, 2002 (David W. Cloud,
Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port
Huron, MI 48061-0368, email@example.com) - Bono, front man for
the popular rock group U2, is using his star status to promote
international socialism. Earlier this month he spoke to a packed
house at Wheaton College's Edman Memorial Chapel about his DATA
organization (which stands for Debt, AIDS, Trade in Africa).
Bono is calling upon America to forgive the massive debts of
African nations in order to help the African people, but, of
course, it would do nothing like that. The pitiful African people
in general are not in that sad condition because of American
greed but because of demon worship, false religion, immorality,
and the oppression of their own self-serving leaders. If Bono
wants to help the poor, he is free to do so; but money possessed
by the American government comes from the taxation of American
workers; and what scriptural mandate gives Bono the right to
do good with other people's money? Bono claims to be a Christian,
but it is a faith that is not based on the Bible.
- :: At Wheaton he said, "It's a remarkable thing, the
idea that there's some sort of hierarchy to sin. It's something
I can never figure out, the idea that sexual immorality is somehow
much worse than, say, institutional greed. Somewhere in the back
of the religious mind is this idea that we reap what we sow is
missing the entire New Testament and the concept of grace completely"
("Backstage with Bono," Christianitytoday.com music
interviews, Dec. 9, 2002). I don't know what New Testament Bono
is referring to, but the one I have read for the last 29 years
says, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever
a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Galatians 6:7);
and that was stated in the very context of Paul's teaching about
grace. God's grace through Christ is offered to all men, but
its reception requires repentance and faith. Furthermore, the
Apostles did not interpret Christ's message in Bono's fashion.
Nowhere in their epistles did not fret about "institutional
greed" or rebuke the Roman government for its institutional
sins; but they said a LOT about personal sin and sexual immorality!

- THE SPIRIT OF JUDAS
:: In today's volatile and uncertain world, all earth dwellers
are being subjected to an intense call for unity and loyalty
to one's country, and even to some greater form of a New World
Order. On the surface, as we watch events on our television screens,
it all sounds so right and proper. However, the political and
religious leaders who are attempting to unite this world, with
peace and prosperity for all, fail to realize the spirit and
power they are operating in. The Bible calls this the spirit
of antichrist in 1 John 4:3, which is the voice of the dragon
or Satan of Revelation 20:2. For this is Satan's world system
at work until Jesus Christ returns to end his dominion. You can
also identify the spirit of antichrist as the spirit of Judas.
:: The life of Judas, who we all know was one of the twelve disciples
of Jesus, is a vivid example of betrayal and disloyalty. Remember,
Judas walked and lived with Jesus for over three years. He saw
the Lord's miracles and power, he heard all of his teachings,
he felt his love for people. Any outsider would declare that
Judas was one of the ringleaders of this new sect in Israel.
But Judas turned on Jesus. He tried to change the mission of
:: Christendom's religious and political leaders are repeating
the error of Judas. They can't see their need for a new heart,
a new nature that only Jesus can give through repentance and
faith in his blood sacrifice. Without this new nature we are
all hopelessly destined for Hell. They don't understand the sin
nature we're all born with. A nature that is proud and full of
wrath, that loves oneself, money, and this world system controlled
by Satan. Like Judas, today's leaders want the power, prosperity,
and glory, but refuse to understand the cross of Jesus Christ.
They want to wear the crown, but refuse to die on the cross.
They refuse to believe that all of us are guilty of nailing Jesus
to the cross. Christendom has become a harlot. It has betrayed
the one they claim to follow; it has become Babylon the Great
of the Revelation.
Instead of learning from the life of Judas, America's people
and leaders, while claiming to be Christians, are labeling anyone
who disagrees with their "one nation under God" tradition,
as unpatriotic traitors. As this world war on religious terrorism
spreads and intensifies, the greater will be the call for loyalty
and unity. It's ironic, but anyone who desires publicly to remain
loyal to the truth of the cross and coming of Jesus, are the
ones likened unto Judas. We are being lumped together with cowardly
pacifists and leftists who also don't understand Jesus or his
mission. I suppose that is why Satan is referred to as "the
master of deception."
For those of you who are offended by what I have written, I plead
with you to study the Bible, to see for yourself. Set aside for
a moment all of your traditions, that keep your love and devotion
to this world system and not the coming Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Read John 17:12 and 2Thessalonians 2:3. You will discover that
the phrase "son of perdition" is used twice in the
New Testament; first referring to Judas, then to the coming Antichrist.
This means that the Antichrist is not a Moslem, Buddhist, or
Hindu, but a false "disciple of Jesus Christ." But,
like Judas, he will betray Jesus, by wanting his crown, but not
- Those in Christendom who want world dominion and are also
indifferent to the coming of Jesus, are part of the great apostasy
predicted in the Bible.
:: One final question needs to answered. Would you rather be
considered a traitor by the "American New World Order"
or by the coming King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ? Please

salaries and those of their family members and special friends
in their indirect personally owned non- profit religious corporation
while they live in palatial palaces like kings and royalty.
:: Unlike Jesus Christ who owned nothing, Televangelists Jan
and Paul Crouch who lost their tax exemption for their Trinity
Broadcasting Network are definitely not lacking in any material
possession. Their home is described as "a palatial estate
with ocean and city views and was purchased for around five million
dollars. It has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a billiard room,
a climate-controlled wine cellar, a sweeping staircase and a
crystal chandelier. The three-story, nearly 9,500-square-foot
house, has an elevator, also has a six-car garage, a tennis court
and a pool with a fountain.
:: Trinity Broadcasting, established in 1973, has more than 768
TV stations on the air worldwide. The Crouches oversee a 100-
million- plus-a- year enterprise. One of the Crouch estates is

- BOSTON CHURCH PANEL WILL ALLOW ARCHDIOCESE TO WEIGH BANKRUPTCY
- :: Dec. 4 2002 - A finance panel of the Archdiocese of Boston
voted today to allow the church to file for bankruptcy as a way
of dealing with the hundreds of lawsuits it faces over sexual
abuse by priests.. If the archdiocese does declare bankruptcy,
it would become the first American Roman Catholic diocese to
do so. Legal experts have said they would be stunned by such
an action because the Boston Archdiocese is so large it could
potentially liquidate assets for payments to abuse victims, which
have been estimated to require about $100 million. And some legal
experts suggested that the archdiocese could be using the specter
of bankruptcy as a way of creating pressure on plaintiffs' lawyers
to accept a settlement... 450 plaintiffs in the abuse lawsuits
had said this week that they would quit settlement negotiations
if the archdiocese did not agree to take talk of bankruptcy off
the table while negotiations continued.
:: Voice of the Faithful, which started in February with 40 people
in a church basement discussing the clergy sexual abuse crisis
and now claims 25,000 members in 40 states, has been careful
to avoid stances that leaders felt might unduly antagonize or
alienate the archdiocese.
- THE RELIGION OF UNIFICATION OF THE WORLD - AN AUSTRALIAN'S
:: [Likening it to a travelog] again it did bear an uncanny resemblance
to last Sundays parish bulletin from our local community
spirituality centre. Or it could have been a quote from the Melbourne-based
jesuit quarterly, Australian Catholics, which all the bishops
of Australia, God bless their little ......, provide free-of-charge
to all the parishes as befits a publication bearing such a lovely
and tolerant name. But what is that to our correspondent and
to us? Then it struck. Eureka! Of course, the mystery citation
could be none other than Pope John Paul II. Trained in the theatre
and a specialist in the philosophy of phenomenology, Karl Wojtyla
is possibly among other things the greatest actor the world has
ever seen. The great man leaves Sir Lawrence Olivier for dead.
Why? Because when Wojtyla acts, he actually becomes what he acts.
Whereas when Olivier acts, the character becomes Olivier.
:: A true maestro, all things to all men like St Paul, and mesmerisingly
charming, John Paul knows how to tap into the deepest wellsprings
of a culture. He knows how to tap the heartstrings of a people.
No matter which of the hundreds of different nations he has visited,
he has left them all spellbound. His world travels have been
a veritable labor of the sun. Indeed the prophet of the popes
Malachy of Armagh 1000 years in advance endowed him that name
which more tersely than a whole biography sums up the soul of
his apostolate: The Labor Of The Sun. (And if you dont
believe me, wasnt the Melbourne Sun newspaper totally Labor
in its editorial on the morning of the recent victorian election?
Which only goes to show!)
Everyone loves John Paul II and we too love a Quiz Show. So lets
keep playing the guessing game with our reader. Is the quote
not perhaps an extract from one of the speeches given by John
Paul when he came to Sydney in 1995 to beatify Mary McKillop?
Say, the Mass at Randwick Racetrack? John Paul knows that the
way to unite the family of man is through reawakening our most
ancient traditions. Such as this months gathering of 10,000
Australian Druids, Catholics, naturists and others on the beach
at Ceduna South Australia for that grand ceremony of catharsis
and rebirth, of fearful death and joyful resurrection: the solar
eclipse. Once again there it is. The labor of the sun! Did you
not know that during the birth of Karl Wojtyla in Poland on May
18 1920 there occurred over the city of Cracow on that day, yes
you guessed, a solar eclipse?
:: People are always expecting him to die but we believe they
are mistaken. This man has a will. His twilight is will be brighter
yet and no anticlimax. Be that as it may, everyone is asking,
what will his legacy be? Apart from an eternal rest from his
whirlwind of labours defending the wee small voice of truth so
tragically eclipsed in this darkening valley of tears, it will
be this. What greater thing does humankind share in common than
nature and our joyful celebration of it?
:: All Australian bishops are united with John Paul in praying
for peace through community and for unity through communion with
our timeless traditions that are so true to our nature. Smoke,
sun, moon, Uluru (formerly Ayers Rock), four sacred elements,
dancing around the sanctuary of fire. These are some of the evocative
imaginings that todays Australians, who are such a nature-loving
people, are assimilating, thanks to the Aborigines and John Paul,
he confirming his brothers the bishops. From kindergarten to
yoga class, from Earth Day to winter festival, the people
are learning all is one and one is all. As that great peacemaker
Franklin Delano Roosevelt noted, and Pope John Paul II adopted
for his motto: Fear not! For we have nothing to fear but fear
itself. And what is there dividing us but division itself? Source
- CHRISTIAN RIGHT CALLS FOR STUDY OF KORAN
:: Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson says media and political
leaders have failed to educate Americans about violence in the
Koran and in islamic history.
:: Robertson relinquished his baptist ordination to run for Republican
presidential nomination in 1988. But he now describes his primary
work as promoting Christianity. For 18 years his CBN Christian
Broadcasting Network had an arab - language broadcast station
in Lebanon. "It was overrun by Hezbollah. He said the violence
visited on Christians in many nations such as Indonesia, Sudan
and Nigeria arising from Shariah or muslim law shows that the
violent behavior is tied to the Koran. He wishes President
Bush had never said Islam is a religion of peace. "He
is not elected as chief theologian. It would have been better
for the president to speak only politically about the Islamic
world and not religiously."
:: Robertson believes that sooner or later our predominantly
Christian nation will need to take its head out of the sand and
work out how to respond to a foreign enemy with religious roots.
He says the public would be better served if the media investigated
the content of the Koran, for many passages directly and
unambigously incite Muslims to kill nonbelievers but under the
now dominant ideology of politically correct neomarxism, the
media are not allowed to report on that. Robertson said he opposed
as "bad law" the government's plans, even in a time
of war, to electronically track the lives of all Americans. "As
the war on terrorism is going forward, the thing I'm concerned
about is how much government control they'll have"
on Americans' domestic life. I don't want to change my
ministry and become some kind of muslim fighter. I don't want
to alienate muslim people." He believes Muslims privately
desire more information about Christianity but are too afraid
to ask. That is why the Internet is giving a great boost to privacy
and truth. Full story http://www.washtimes.com/national/20021126-14786718.htm.
- MUSLIMS ASK LIBRARIES TO OFFER INFO ON ISLAM
:: US Muslim groups have organized a yearlong project to put
a package of books and a PBS video on Islam, all by american
authors, in the nation's 16,000 public libraries to promote understanding
of the religion.
:: CAIR Council On American Islamic Relations reports that supporters
have sent in 4,219 sponsorships of $150 each to pay for the library
package, but the number of libraries accepting them is not yet
clear. He also confirmed reports that a saudi billionaire, Prince
Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, donated $500,000 to
CAIR for the educational push. Most of it is going for the library
project. The saudi money prompted conservative activist Paul
Weyrich, chairman of Free Congress Foundation, to say that while
libraries have intellectual freedom, the library packages "present
a highly misleading view of Islam, spray-painting over the religion's
long history of animosity to Western values." He called
for American Library Association to issue a statement on the
problems with stocking a one-sided view of Islam and urged the
use of materials written by his foundation's staff.
RADIO STATION DROPS DOBSON-
- :: A California radio station has ended its 17-year relationship
with Focus on the Family because station officials say the broadcasts
are "too racy." Santa Ana's KWVE - run by Calvary Chapel

from its broadcasting format (10/16 AgapePress). Per a statement
on KWVE's Web site, concerns were aired earlier in the year with

- THE JESUIT CAMPUS
- :: C-Span 11.4.02 featured Garry Wills addressing a group
at Georgetown University. He called it the Jesuit Campus. What
was most interesting was the fact that he said that the Democratic
Party takes orders from below while the Republicans take orders
He lamented that Democrats are against capital punishment like
the Pope and it doesn't fit. They are not true to form. The reason
the Pope is against capital punishment, it gives sinners a time
to repent which Jesus would want.
He said that America had no religion at its foundation so they
could control religions somehow. They wanted to try something
new. Everything else had been tried and didn't work. President
Madison emphasized separation of church and state as the only
way that this country could be run with a pluralistic society.
Some believe it is the government's business to uphold the peace
of God's city on a hill (America) and others that they should
uphold the peace of Babylon. Which ever, we are all in this together
and rather than destroy we should love our country and try to
improve it, critizise it and stay in the country. Many get so
upset they leave the country.
Concepts are meant to protect. Garry Wills briefly touched religious
pluralism and being a devout Catholic he is expected to deal
with it but stated that so far he has had little appetite for
it and hopes someone else will tackle it.
A lady addressed him and stated as a Catholic that the church
needs to be put on its head to get cleaned up and needs a whole
We feel for Catholics. It has to be heartwrenching to watch the
Pope reject expelling priests who practice pedophilia. We would
have a hard time taking our children to church and subject them
to that possibility.
Author of a number of books, Garry Wills, stated that tyranny
is justifiable to control people.
Remembering, for Freemasons black is white and white is black
and apply that to what was said about the two American political

at the mall. We don't carry cash and we wanted a pop. We walked

we agreed to pay a $2.00 fee for the transaction. We wanted a
drink so we said, yes. Now the bill needed to be changed into
$1.00 bills and there was a cookie stand right next to us. We
got the bright idea to buy one cookie.

We rushed to the machine to get a bottle of pop. $1.00 each said
the machine and each pop fell down the shoot. By now we had spent

- VACCINATION SHORTAGES STILL EVIDENT
:: Vaccinations were under discussion at the White House today
to analyze the shortages. The federal government has aspirations
of taking over that industry.
:: Jonathan Tucker author of a book named "Scourge"
specializes in chemical bio weapons. He said that people who
are vulnerable when vaccinated for Smallpox which is planned,
are those who have Eczema, Aids, Cancer (chemo therapy) and Transplants
(receivers). If you get sick you get Encephalitis which is often
fatal. The virus of Smallpox is airborne within 5 to 6 feet of
the person who has been infected. The virus doesn't have a long
life span outside the body. If exposed to it one can still be
vaccinated within 3 or 4 days and become immune to it. The person
needs to be isolated immediately. Infection shows up first as
skin rash after which it gets into mouth and throat and becomes
airborne. Smallpox vaccination is a live virus. In 1947 there
was an outbreak of Smallpox. 8 million people were vaccinated
and 8 died from vaccinations. Smallpox killed 1 out of 3.[ Washington

- WERE THE TWIN TOWERS A WAKE UP CALL FOR AMERICANS?
:: Interesting facts about Flight 93 Only 8% of human remains
were found. Wreckage found, said someone from Shanksville, was
almost non existent. The biggest piece they found was the size
of a briefcase in Shanksville, PA. Two women reported that they
were informed prior to the private tape hearing by a District
Attorney not to be too specific about what they heard on the
tape which had recorded activity on the plane before it went
:: Mrs. Beaver said that the tape was muffled, there was not
much to gain from it. On 9/11 a year later, in Shanksville, some
30,000 people were expected for a first viewing of the area.
The President had not seen it either prior to that day. The people
who reported what they found were people who live in Shanksville.
They screened the area to see what they could find. Just a hand
full of people showed up for memorial service led by President
:: They call the Twin Tower site THE PIT. Cost of the attack
so far is $100 billion. On Phil Donahue's Show survivors were
interviewed and it came out that New York is exempt from the
usual fire codes and the buildings are death traps. There was
no communication within the building which had been a problem
for a long time and all but one staircase was open. They had
never had a fire drill. Nobody knew what to do and people tried
to misdirect others. Many perished due to confusion and making
wrong decisions. 343 firefighters died due to that kind of irresponsibility.
They were betrayed. These buildings were controlled by the government
:: Another survivor told they could not leave the building. They
were told to stay. There were twenty minutes between take offs
and even airports seemed to have communication failure. Women
who lost sons and husbands have been trying to contact Senators
and they do not make themselves available. There is nobody home
to the people in the White House. They won't investigate.
:: 19,000 body parts are still unidentified. Only 293 bodies
have been recovered.
:: President Bush said he immediately declared EMERGENCY RESPONSE.
Why was Rumsfeld sitting at his desk when the Pentagon was hit,
asked one lady. Many miracles were reported. The buildings had
normally up to 50,000 people trafficking through and residing
in the buildings. Less than 3,000 died who were apparently there
at 9/11. Only a few got out.
:: Another interesting comment was that the fuel burned out in
4 minutes. The buildings took 6 years to build and there is no
technical explanation why they came down as fast as they did.
One of the buildings that imploded was not hit. There was enough
time to evacuate Tower 2 which wasn't even attempted.
:: Dennis Smith was involved in constructing the towers. He wrote
a book: "Ground Zero' about his own rescue. He was trapped
inside with a group. One of them did not make it out.
:: The Pentagon project is called the "Phoenix Project."
[Masonic language]. President Bush said on 9/11 2002, "this
is NO TIME TO LOOK BACK." Ollie North said the same thing
when he was asked about Anthrax that was shipped to Saddam Hussein
in Iraq some years ago. Donald Rumsfeld, when asked about the
new war and the fact that Osama is not caught yet, he said: "The
war in Afghanistan was not about targeting Osama bin Laden but
about moving the Taliban out of Afghanistan."
:: A sculpture which they called "a monument to foster peace
through world trade" of a large sphere, placed in 1971,
was damaged in the attack. It had a large gaping hole in it.
(Fox News 9/11). The sphere, a symbol of strength and hope, so
they said, was taken into THE PIT - GROUND ZERO. The United Nations
Assembly was present with world leaders and lit the eternal flame.
:: They are showing Osama now with a group of sixty "brothers"
(9.15.02 on CNNfn) and repeating what he said after the planes
hit the buildings. "The brothers heard the news" said
the commentator .. .. "ONLY THE SELECT FEW KNOW that the
fourth plane is in the air." Osama wept and thanked Allah.
He signaled each event with number of fingers on 9/11, the last
being four fingers. Fighter pilots had permission to shoot planes

if you die for this cause. You will be glorified forever.
- MORE ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE:
:: President Bush said that he can't believe that someone in
Congress said that he would wait on the United Nation. Between
Bush and Colin Powell we are getting nothing but mixed messages.
:: President Bush, making his bid for war on Iraq, stated that
the United Nations is irrelevant if they don't want to get involved
in this planned war. They have no function if they let Saddam
get away by noncompliance of 16 U.N. Resolutions for decades.
:: The next day, Senator Byrd debated for hours lamenting and
asking, "are we going into a police state?" when he
looked at the language used in the appropriation budget for war.
Byrd chairs the Appropriation Committee. He has been in Congress
for 50 years slowing the young ones down. He was used to debating
in previous years but nobody would listen today. The room was
empty except for one who would come and go. "They want to
pass this in a hurry." He had a problem with plans to integrate
assets into the U.S. military into "all" aspects of
the strategy. We seem to have a government within a government
just like the CIA which pulled a cloak of secrecy around itself.
Senator Jeff Sessions said that we have troops by Iraq already
and they fly daily over Iraq. Saddam has moved 80,000 troops
to the Kuwait border.

behavior. Not only did the Prime Minister of Pakistan rewrite
his Constitution giving all the power to himself, but Prime Minister
Putin attacked Georgia by preemptive strike. [C-SPAN Washington

- SADDAM'S BIO:
:: Saddam goes back to 1968 in government service. He was the
head of Intelligence until 1979 when he became head of Iraq.
Iraq became a Republic in 1958. Saddam has threatened to torch
Saudi Arabia oil fields said editor of "Oil Daily".
The U.S. is one of the biggest producers of oil. It is 50% foreign
oil dependent. The U.S. is buying 1.5 million barrels of oil
a day from Iraq. They wish to raise it to 5 to 7 million barrels
a per day. Alaska is not a real alternative, not enough to get
to make it worthwhile. President Bush is increasing storage,
which is now 7 - 8 month worth to 80 additional days. The editor
did not think that changing oil prices at the pump has much of
an effect on the U.S. economy. She said that they can't lower
the price. It would hurt the U.S. economy. There are 11 members
in OPEC. They have a huge lobbie stepping in front of alternative
- MILITARY PERSONNEL RESIGNING:
::They don't agree with the U.S. government policy in the Middle
- THE UN MULTILATERAL POLICY VERSUS THE BUSH UNILATERAL POLICY.
:: The U.N. Charter prohibits force. There needs to be authorization
from the Security Council to proceed into war. There are 5 members
on the Security Council: U.S., France, Britain, Russia and China.
A Resolution has to be presented to the council. A country can
abstain which has no effect on whether the resolution is adapted.
:: The reason President Bush has expressed that Iraq is implicated
in 9/11, he insists that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.
Anticipatory self defense, are reasons for war that could be
recognized by the Security Council.
:: Saddam has now complicated matters by wanting to comply and
neutralize 2 or 3 significant violations to remove himself from
the list of reasons for war. Saddam split the Security Council
by this maneuver. Putin of Russia and Hussein have an economic
- PREDICTIONS OF A HORRIBLE WAR
:: The professor predicted horrible consequences if we go to
war. Iraq would not shy away from using whatever. A similar comment
came up by from Ashley's interview with a representative of Iraq
when she was in Iraq several weeks prior to this:development.
He said weapon's inspectors at this point could become "a
slaughter of the lambs." By asking inspectors into Iraq
would be to allow them to spy on the weapons he has readied for
war. That is why the pitched out before. They are nothing but
spies, said Hussein.
:: Scott Ritter, a GI and former U.N. weapon's inspector is to
be admired to put himself in harms way trying avert a war. His
life is being threatened for getting involved. He is using his
own money which has been subsidized by benign organizations.
He said that he has maxed out 3 credit card traveling to Iraq
etc.. When asked were Iraq got their weaponry he said Western
Europe which was facilitated by the U.S. Regime removal is the
focus and oil is after the fact.
:: One of the arguments against war is that there are many countries
that have tyrants for leaders. We have military personnel in
104 countries out of 140 countries. We are 5% of the world population.
- THE BUDGET:
:: This year's budget in Washington D.C. Congress is $2 trillion
stated a Representative on the Committee.
:: The Senate only (excluding the House) wants to reinstate the
PAY GO Rules to which only one person objected. Graham objected
that the Senate planned to exclude the House rule on this issue.
Pay Go means that money is spent as it comes in, which includes
Social Security and all surplus can be used up for administrative
costs. Pay as you Go only effects direct spending and has no
effect on the "continuing resolution (a status when there
is no budget passed)."
:: What is in effect is a boundary of $760 billion to slow down
the train before it crashes. A former White House Budget director
said what is going to happen when the equity on homes, the only
savings that people now are forced to dip into, erodes when they
raise interest rates.
- SOME OF TAMPA MILITARY BASE MOVED TO AFGHANISTAN
:: President Bush has decided to move a part of the Tampa base
to Afghanistan to bring the military headquarters closer to Iraq
and they will have a certain amount of privacy. I heard him place
an order for 6 + or - military ships costing in the billions
- FRANKLIN GRAHAM BUILDING A HOSPITAL IN AFGHANISTAN
:: Last I checked Franklin Graham's whereabouts, he is building
a hospital in Afghanistan and the military occupation in Afghanistan
are building infrastructure there. The New World Order marches
on. There is a law in US that grants ownership of land that has
been trespassed at a certain point to the frequent tresspasser.
The law grants that right to possession without a purchase.
- GAINS THAT ARE ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT
:: Believe it or not, 'economic efficiency' is the culprit that
caused the thousands of dedicated, hardworking Americans to lose
their investments and retirement incomes. Why, because this law
has been practiced and taught in law schools over the last 15
to 20 years. This philosophy has to do with the New World Order
which is about money. It teaches that a manager may break the
law if it is financially more efficient, in other words more
economically efficient. The motto is to pay the fine. The financial
world apparently is not based on morality anymore.
:: This concept came up when Cynthia Williams, a Professor at
the Law School of the University of Illinois College, was asked

up to 575%, pay no taxes, get hundreds of millions of tax rebates

corporate accountability is accurate financial statements which
are critical to the market and they are required to show accountability
and maximize the shareholder's wealth not their own. The CEOs
work for the shareholders. They are hired by them. $2 trillion

:: The crash of 1929 lasted four years. 80% of stock was lost
during that time. Only 2% of American citizens owned stock compared
to 50% today. The shareholders are out of the loop. They have
no voice. They have no idea that the philosophy of law and economics
does not protect them. To violate the law if it increases profit
is taught by 80% of the teachers and pounded into student's heads,
was said at this conference about corporate crime. It facilitates
economic efficiency. If a manager should violate a law to make
gains, only the CEO wins. It pays well to breach a contract,
do it because it is economically efficient. The fines don't go
the shareholder but the government. The result has the effect
of what is happening. The reason the CEOs stayed quiet about
their deeds was to maximize their take.

- TRACKING TERRORISM
9/11 REPORT SAYS SAUDI ARABIA WENT UNEXAMINED
:: WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 2003 -A draft report by the joint Congressional
committee looking into the Sept. 11 attacks has concluded that
the F.B.I. and the C.I.A, in their investigations, did not aggressively
pursue leads that might have linked the terrorists to Saudi Arabia,
senior government officials said today.
The report charged among other things that the authorities had
failed to investigate the possibility that two of the hijackers,
Saudis named Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaq Alhazmi, received Saudi
money from two Saudi men they met with in California in the year
before the attacks.
- The committee's preliminary findings, which also accuse the
Saudi government of a lack of cooperation with American investigators,
have caused a bitter behind-the-scenes dispute between the panel's
staff and officials at the F.B.I. and the C.I.A. At each agency,
officials have disagreed with the draft findings, saying investigators
vigorously pursued all available information related to Saudi
- In a rebuttal report sent to the committee in recent days,
the F.B.I. has tried to disprove several specific allegations
by the committee. One of them was about Mr. Midhar and Mr. Alhazmi,
who lived in San Diego a year before the attacks.
- While in California, the two met with Omar al-Bayoumi and
Osama Bassnan, each of whom was receiving financial support from
the Saudi government. The men were receiving stipends.. investigators
should have followed up on the meetings of the four men to determine
whether there might have been a Saudi link to the hijacking plot.
The Bush administration has sought to maintain close ties with
Riyadh even as investigators examining the backgrounds of the
hijackers have complained that they have received little cooperation
from the Saudi government.
The tension between the joint inquiry staff and the F.B.I. and
C.I.A. is the latest to evolve from the inquiry into lapses by
intelligence and law enforcement agencies related to the Sept.
11 attacks. In a series of interim reports released during committee
hearings in recent months, the joint panel has repeatedly criticized
the performance of the two agencies.
Mr. Midhar and Mr. Alhazmi, who were aboard the American Airlines
plane that crashed into the Pentagon, were identified as Qaeda
operatives by the C.I.A. in January 2001. But the C.I.A. did
not ask the State Department to place their names on a watch
list intended to prevent entry into the United States until late
August. By then, they were both in the country. The C.I.A. sent
information about the two men to the F.B.I. in late August, but
by then there was little time left for the bureau to track them
- MONEY FROM SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY INDIRECTLY HELPED TWO HIJACKERS
- :: WASHINGTON (Nov. 24) (AP) - Allegations that money from
the Saudi royal family indirectly helped two Sept. 11 hijackers
mean a well-financed terrorist structure still could be in place
in America, capable of striking again, lawmakers said Sunday.
- A link between the Saudi government and the hijackers, if
true, "raises the stakes substantially of what the threat
is in the United States," said Democratic Sen. Bob Graham
of Florida, outgoing chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Such a network could "facilitate the next wave of terror."
- Saudi officials have denied doing anything intentionally
to help the 19 hijackers, of whom 15 were from their country.
Foreign policy adviser Adel al-Jubeir said Sunday, "We will
be merciless against people in the war on terrorism."
- The FBI is investigating financial records indicating that
Princess Haifa al-Faisal, wife of the Saudi ambassador, wrote
monthly checks that ultimately went into the accounts of Omar
al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan.
- "If it's the royal family, (that) needs to be brought
out," said Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, top Republican on
the intelligence panel. He said Saudi officials, despite their
alignment with the United States, have promoted shady charities
and fundamentalist strains of Islam that are hostile to America.
With the latest allegations, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona,
"..But facts are facts," he said, turning to what he
sees as Saudi complicity in the rise of anti-American radicalism.
"The Saudi royal family been engaged in a Faustian bargain
for years to keep themselves in power."
- BUSH BUSHED BY ADVISERS ABOUT FACE
:: Dana Milbank, Washington Post - President Bush is taken aback
by a Janus-faced establishment's agenda shift. The mildmannered
multiculturalism of 'Don't call it a Crusade, George!' has given
way to the multilateralist aggression of 'This is Lepanto, World
War Four, Islam versus the free world, the ultimate clash of
- The President finds himself in disagreement with the 'neo-conservative'
radicals in his party over his efforts to portray Islam as a
peaceful religion not responsible for anti-American terrorism.
He has persistently called for tolerance of Muslims and described
Islam as "a faith based upon peace and love and compassion"
and committed to "morality and learning and tolerance."
He told UN Secretary General Kofi Annan: "Some of the comments
that have been uttered about Islam do not reflect the sentiments
of my government or the sentiments of most Americans.
- Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of people, is a
peaceful religion, a religion that respects others. Ours is a
country based upon tolerance, Mr Secretary General, and we respect
the faith and we welcome people of all faiths in America.' He
exhorted the American public: 'Millions of our fellow citizens
are Muslim. We respect the faith. We honor its traditions. Our
enemy does not. Our enemy doesn't follow the great traditions
of Islam. They've hijacked a great religion. The face of terror
is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all
about. Islam is peace."
- Both the Bush administration and moderate governments in
Arab and Muslim nations are struggling to prevent War On Terrorism
from becoming what Osama bin Laden wants: a clash of civilizations,
between the judeo-christian West and a resentful impoverished
muslim world. But foreign policy hawks with advisory roles in
the Bush administration have joined religious conservatives in
taking issue with Bush's characterizations.
They say the claim is dishonest and destined to fail. Kenneth
Adelman, a former Reagan official who serves on the Pentagon's
Defense Policy Board, says: "The more you examine the religion,
the more militaristic it seems. After all, its founder, Mohammed,
was a warrior, not a peace advocate like Jesus." Another
member of the Pentagon advisory board, Eliot Cohen of Johns Hopkins
School Of Advanced International Studies, wrote an article on
Wall Street Journal's editorial page arguing that the enemy of
the US is not terrorism but militant Islam: "The enemy has
an ideology and an hour spent surfing the web will give the average
citizen at least the kind of insights that he or she might have
found during World Wars II and III by reading Mein Kampf or the
writings of Lenin, Stalin or Mao.
Nobody would like to think that a major world religion has a
deeply aggressive and dangerous strain in it: a strain often
excused or misrepresented in the name of good feelings. But uttering
uncomfortable unpleasant truths is one of the things that defines
leadership." Norman Podhoretz in Commentary magazine wrote:
"Certainly not all Muslims are terrorists. But it would
be dishonest to ignore the plain truth that Islam has become
an especially fertile breeding-ground of terrorism in our time.
This can only mean there is something in the religion itself
that legitimizes the likes of Osama bin Laden. And indeed there
is: the obligation imposed by the Koran to wage holy war or jihad
against the infidels."

- TERROR WAR'S PARALLEL UNIVERSE
:: Charles Lane, Washington Post - The Bush administration is
developing a parallel legal system in which terrorism suspects,
US citizens and noncitizens alike, may be investigated, jailed,
interrogated, tried and punished without legal protections guaranteed
by the ordinary system.
The elements of this new system are already familiar from President
Bush's orders and his aides' policy statements and legal briefs:
indefinite military detention for those designated "enemy
combatants," liberal use of "material witness"
warrants, counterintelligence-style wiretaps, and searches led
by law enforcement officials and for noncitizens trial by military
commissions or deportation after strictly closed hearings.
- For example under authority it already is asserting in court
cases, the administration with approval of the special Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Court could order a clandestine search
of a US citizen's home and based on the information gathered
secretly declare the citizen an enemy combatant to be held indefinitely
at a US military base. Courts would have very limited authority
to second-guess the detention, to the extent that they were aware
of it. At least one American has been shifted from the ordinary
legal system into the parallel one: alleged al Qaeda "dirty
bomb" plotter Jose Padilla, who is being held at a Navy
brig, without the right to communicate with a lawyer or anyone
else. US officials have told the courts that they can detain
and interrogate him until the executive branch declares an end
to the war against terrorism. Full story
MEXICAN DRUG DEALERS TURNING U.S. INTO MAJOR DEPOTS
- DALTON, Ga. By Tim Golden. This sturdy town in the
Appalachian foothills likes to call itself "the carpet capital
of the world," and its industry has thrived over the last
decade as thousands of Mexican immigrants have flocked to jobs
in the mills.
More recently, though, federal and local law enforcement officials
say the same pipeline of immigration and trade has been exploited
by Mexican drug traffickers, who have helped turn this corner

- GLOBALIZATION GOES AGAINST FRENCH CULTURE
- :: Globalization goes against French culture stated Alain
Juppe, former French Prime Minister. He said that France is taking
a stand against becoming homogenized with the rest of the world
which globalization demands. The French love their culture and
want to preserve it under any circumstances.
The new world government institution produces fear and frustration
in France. They want to be exempted from the WTO, Unemployment
is 9-10% in France compared to 5-6% in the U.S. and taxes run
at 45% of the GNP when the U.S. stands at 35%. The reason their
taxes are higher, education and healthcare are free. French workers
rather than asking how much they are going to get in dollars,
they want to know how much time off they get when they apply
for a job.
Young French people have different priorities. Leisure takes
first place and then money.
Changes yet to be accomplished to comply with globalization in
France are: pensions, privatization, people from the private
sector entering politics will find a huge salary difference.
The deficiencies have to be delt with. They have to become efficient,
the housing shortage has to be solved and they have to become
committed to the principle of solidarity. (C-Span 2 - 10.31.02)
