RE: Operation THERMCON (short for "Thermite Conspiracy")

THERMCON was the code name of a FBI operation which was
launched in response to the sabotage of the Arizona Snowbowl ski lift near
Flagstaff, Arizona in October 1987 by three people from Prescott, Arizona, Mark Davis, Margaret Millet, and Marc Baker. In a November, 1987 letter claiming
responsibility, the group called themselves the "Evan Mecham Eco-Terrorist International Conspiracy" (EMETIC). The group named
themselves after Evan Mecham, a former Arizona governor. The Arizona Snowbowl spent $50,000
repairing the damage.

Short for "Thermite Conspiracy" - thermite being an incendiary mixture of powdered aluminium
oxide and iron oxide - Operation THERMCON employed more than 50 FBI agents and involved the infiltration of the group between
1987 and 1989 by undercover FBI agent Michael Fain, and the
recruitment of Ron Fraizer, a friend of the three, as an informant. Despite the name "Thermite Conspiracy," cutting torches were
the tool of choice for the group.

The operation culminated in the arrest of the three following an attempt to down a transmission tower in the Arizona desert
which led from the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. Two
additional persons were also indicted as a result. The fourth was Ilse Apslund, a friend of the three from Prescott. The fifth,
Dave Foreman, at the time the leader of Earth First!

based in Tucson, Arizona, was not involved in the group but was nonetheless charged with
conspiracy, on the grounds that he had given a copy of the book Ecodefense inscribed
"happy monkeywrenching" and a $100 donation to undercover agent Michael Fain. [1]

The FBI claimed the group was planning similar attacks on other powerlines in Arizona, Colorado, and California. FBI testimony
during and after the trial characterized the group's future plans as targeting powerlines to or from the Central Arizona Project Aqueduct, the Rocky Flats
, and the Diablo Canyon Power Plant.

Earth First! claimed the operation was intended to discredit Earth First! by linking its leaders to the conspiracy,
particularly Dave Foreman. During the course of the operation, undercover agent Michael Fain (who used the name Mike Tait) was
recorded saying "I don't really look for them to be doing a lot of hurting people... (Foreman) isn't really the guy we need to
pop -- I mean in terms of an actual perpetrator. This is the guy we need to pop to send a message. And that's all we're really
doing... Uh-oh! We don't need that on tape! Hoo boy!" [2] According to an FBI field office file released to Earth First! activists

Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney in 1996, FBI
agents provocateurs associated with THERMCON spent two years winning the trust
of the Prescott group, actively encouraging them to sabotage powerlines and attempting - unsuccessfully - to convince the group
that they should use, and even offering to buy, explosives for this purpose. FBI agents also selected the site and purchased and
transported cutting equipment prior to the sabotage attempt on 30 May, 1989, leading to accusations of entrapment. [citation needed]

Attorney Gerry Spence represented the defendants.

The four from Prescott entered into a plea bargain. Davis was sentenced to 6 years in
prison and restitution of $19,821 to the Arizona Snowbowl. Millet was sentenced to 3 years and restitution of $19,821. Baker was
sentenced to 6 months and a $5000 fine, and Apslund to 30 days and a $2000 fine. The four were sentenced in September 1991.

Dave Foreman's case was separated from the other four and sentencing was deferred until 1996, when the charges were reduced to
a single misdemeanor and he was fined $250.

Insect... or robot?Tiny robot insects that mimic flying bugs are being developed by US defence chiefs to spy on enemies, it was revealed on Wednesday.

The Pentagon's Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency has sanctioned work on four 'robobugs' weighing less than 10g (0.3oz) each, and with a 7.5cm (3in) wingspan.

It is hoped to have prototypes flying in 2008.

The aim is for the bugs to carry tiny spy cameras. The bugs should be far more manoeuvrable than micro-sized conventional aircraft.

But mimicking an insect's figure-of-eight wing beat – to give optimum mid-air agility – is proving tough, New Scientist reports.

This special edition of Visibility 9-11 features The Unearthing; An Awakening Has Arrived, an essay by Manuel Valenzuela, here recorded and narrated by Michael Wolsey.

An Awakening Has Arrived

With Truth Comes Awakening

The suppression of truth has long been among the highest priorities for the upper echelons of power and authority. For a minority elite that clings to power by the manipulation of the masses using an omnipresent cocktail of lies, deception, mass-produced ignorance and ingrained propaganda, the destruction of truth is an essential method of control. It is a formula that has worked to unmitigated success for the elite throughout history, whether the shadows of power stretch from ancient pyramids, marble temples, castles, mansions or halls of governance. Those holding the levers of power and control understand, better than most, that the dissemination of truths to a blind majority could spell the end of their reign, for truth brings sight to the blind.

PLEASE GET THIS OUT NOW!! Dont let them do it to us again!!

As if right on que, this British newspaper Article that was published today- April 22 warns of a possible "terrorist" strike! The article states that the strike will be NUCLEAR, will be carried out by "Al C.I.A.DA" and it will hit either BRITIAN or one of her allies(U.S.) and IS TIED TO IRAN. Is it a COINCIDENCE that they are having drills at the same times and our fleets are in the gulf?.....

The Article

Previous post- {} are later
I sent this email to Alex Jones Early Today....

"Dear Alex, Im sending this to both your News tips and your myspace.

There has been some buzz going around that there will be drill involving multiple agencies in the US and Europe. The drills will involve a Nuclear weapon in an American City and "simulate" martial law. Depending on which drill, it will either be in Virginia or Indianapolis.

What really got me was that one of these drills is called "Vigilant Guard". I Know that on 9/11 they had the "Vigilant GuardIAN" drill, which is eerily similar. It almost like they're warning us, but I hope not.
I also realized that this was one a very important calender date to occultist/satanist, as the "sacrifice to the beast" Holiday is celebrated in honor of Moloch. {MOLOCH is the Deity worshipped at BOHEMIAN GROVE by some of this countries most powerful people, including the BUSH FAMILY}
THis holiday spans from April 19 to May 1 and is dedicated to human sacifice. This would be the perfect time for them if they plan to attack Iran this year {As the Russians have been warning}.
Finally, Im reminded that the movie "NEXT" is coming out, which is about a TERRORIST NUKE going of in an AMERICAN CITY {a PORT actually}. Also the production firm for the movie is called "SATURN" productions. {This could mean nothing, but given how these people operate and the reverence for the "Dark Sun" Saturn, it could be quite significant}

I hope IM wrong on this one. But maybe you should make another one of your famous anouncements so they dont go through with it...

Thank you, God bless."

OK, 9/11 Truthers! Here's some more dirt to dig! Did you know about the car bombing at the State Department or the 5th "airliner" shot down near Camp David.....sounds like someone lost count of all the drones, of which there were apparently 8 or more! The plane shot down near Camp David was never in the official stoory, was it? Hmmmmm??? If that is true, why have "only 4 been accounted for"? I would count 5, wouldn't you.....WTC1, WTC2, Pentagon, Shanksville and Camp David.....WTF? Then there was the real 93 that landed at Cleveland Hopkins...that would be 6. Then there was the real AA11...noone knows where that one went....and the real UA175 that was replaced by a remote controlled drone...and the real AA77 that flew all over the damned Eastern US before flying passed the Pentagram twice before making the most improbable suicide plane trajectory in the history of manually flown airliner aviation while being piloted by no less than the world famous Hani Hanjour who couldn't solo a Cessna Cub a few weeks earlier. Since AA77 was shown to have never crashed in to the Pentagram, there had to be still another a Global Hawk with a Cruise missile warhead...that hit the House that War built. Of course Logan radar watched the 2nd and 3rd Flight(s) 93 diverge near Pittsburgh with one heading northeast while the other flew southeast. AA11 probably went to Halifax to get lost in all the Atlantic incoming traffic that was diverted there.
One thing is certain, there was no official reports that any of the "hijacked airliners" flown by "Arab terrorists" were ever intercepted or shot at by the most sophisticated air and land defenses in the world, even after they had been in the air for well over an hour!

The article below talks about unmarked planes, a series of 15 explosions before the collapse of the South Tower and all of the anomalies listed above. Do some research! There's a lot of really good stuff out there for you to digest and assimilate in your search for the Truth, the nWhole Truth and nothing but the Truth!

U.S. Under Attack; World Trade Center Destroyed
Davide Dukcevich,, 09.11.01, 11:34 AM ET

The United States was struck Tuesday by what appeared to be a coordinate series of terrorist attacks on Washington, D.C., and New York City that have destroyed the World Trade Center and are feared to have left many thousands dead.

Both the towers of the World Trade Center collapsed after being hit by planes. An aircraft also hit the Pentagon in the Washington, D.C., area, causing serious damage. There are reports of a fourth airliner had been brought down near Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, by U.S. military fighters. A fifth plane has crashed in Western Pennsylvania. A car bomb exploded outside the State Department, according to State Department sources.

CBS News reported that as many as eight planes have been hijacked and only four have been accounted for.

President Bush described as the incidents as an "apparent terrorist attack" and "a national tragedy." He said that the U.S. "would hunt down and find" the perpetrators.

The White House has been evacuated and New York City is on full terror alert. The Federal Aviation Administration has grounded all outgoing flights in the country. All international flights to U.S. destinations have been diverted to Canada. Military jets flew above New York and Washington following the attacks.

The first incident happened at about 9 a.m. when an American Airlines passenger jet -- that had been reportedly hijacked on a flight from Boston to Los Angeles -- hit the northern tower of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan's financial district. Shortly afterward, the southern tower was struck by an unmarked plane.

An hour later, the tower collapsed, following what eyewitnesses describe as a series of 15 explosions inside the building. Half an hour after that, the second tower fell, leaving southern Manhattan covered in a pall of smoke and dust.

About 50,000 people work in the World Trade Center. Many were arriving to their jobs when the first plane struck. Workers in buildings across Manhattan were evacuated. The New York stock exchange was closed for the day.

"We looked outside and there was a second plane, it looked like it came from the east side, there were no markings," according to CFO Bob Tomlinson, who was facing the buildings from his Flatiron district office. "[The plane] was big, and dark --brown or black -- it was large, and it had a military look."

The second impact, which happened about 15 minutes after the first, caused an enormous ball of fire and scattered huge chunks of debris on the sidewalks and streets below. The fire could be seen for miles on the clear, cool September day

The attacks come 23 years after the signing of the Camp David Accords on Sept. 17, 1978. That agreement, brokered by President Jimmy Carter between Egyptian President Muhammad Anwar al-Sadat and Menachem Begin, the then Prime Minister of Israel was supposed to provide a framework for peace in the Middle East.

It also comes eight years after the World Trade Center was bombed in a terrorist attack, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000.

The twin towers of the World Trade Center, one of the most recognizable landmarks in the United States, each have 110 stories, rising up 1,300 feet and are the tallest buildings in New York City and the third tallest buildings on the planet. The towers are home to financial firms like long bond traders Cantor Fitzgerald and mutual fund firm Fred Alger Management, as well as the famous tourist restaurant Windows on the World.

More often than not you will find the Global Elite will quite happily tell you EXACTLY what they are going to do because as a matter of fact they have to speak to each other.

Here, Barnett is OVERT, in telling you what this war in the M.E is all about and it is NOT oil. It is about taking out opponents of "Globalization" (Islam) and making the M.E safe for Israel.

Barnett explains in this 2 part extract how Globalization has progressed in 2 previous stages. He explains how 2 world wars produced new "RULE SETS" that paved the way for the next movement into the next "phase" of the operation to bring on One World Government.

We see here Barnett explaining PERFECTLY the concept of PROBLEM-REACTION-SOLOUTION.

Barnett explains that we are in the final phase of the new RULE SETS program that will usher in the new economic order and along with it the political and intellectual order with it.

Banker Claims $10m After Boss Said 'Good Morning'



A New York based investment banker is suing her firm after, she alleges, her boss greeted her each day with a cheerful 'good morning'.

The banker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, enjoyed a 20 year career on Wall Street, but claims she was forced to leave her last role working for a major international investment bank as she was unable to cope when her boss behaved in a civilized way toward her.

According to the suit, filed Monday in the Court for the Southern District of New York, the 44 year old banker claims that her male boss 'often came in smiling and had the audacity to utter the words 'Good Morning' as he passed by my desk'. She continued, 'I have worked on Wall Street for almost two decades and my bosses have always totally ignored me. I felt intimidated. My boss's behaviour was completely inappropriate, and his attitude was totally over-familiar. Even my husband, who I have known for 23 years, doesn't speak to me in this manner. In fact, he doesn't speak to me at all'.

The banker also took exception to the fact that her boss encouraged her to take time off to be with her young children, and constantly complained that she was working overly long hours. 'He insisted that I take my full maternity leave after the birth of my last child, and even had the impertinence to give me a decent bonus that year - despite the fact that I was hardly in the office'. The banker says that she found the whole experience 'disconcerting', and claims that 'I had an identity crisis. My boss challenged my perception of myself and my role in life. I couldn't cope, and ended up seeing a shrink'.

Repeatedly asking her boss to stop his alleged inappropriate behaviour, the banker says that 'he ignored my pleas to be treated in a normal way and continued to behave as if nothing was wrong'. The banker is now seeking $10m - $2m for unfair dismissal and loss of earnings, $7m for punitive damages and $1m towards her therapy bills.

A spokesperson for the bank said that 'this is a very sad case. Mrs X was a dedicated, hardworking member of our staff. She did, however, have problems relating to those around her, especially more senior staff. She refused to take time off, and at one stage remained in the office working for a full 5 days. Other employees started to complain about hygiene-related issues. We tried to encourage Mrs X to get a better work / life balance and even attempted to retrieve her BlackBerry each evening before she left the office so that she wouldn't spend time at home working. Unfortunately, she took to swallowing her BlackBerry just before she left the office, and somehow managed to recover it soon after returning home. Amazingly, it always seemed to be in full working order'.

The final straw came when, so the firm says, Mrs X refused to leave the building after another 36-hour work stretch, and chained herself to her desk. She is said to have been still calling clients from her mobile telephone even as she was finally cut free and escorted from the premises by bank security staff. She was let go soon after, but continued to attempt to gain access to the office each morning for the next 4 months, often disguised as a bearded Catholic priest. The bank finally got a restraining order against her.

This case will come to court later this year, and is expected to last 6 weeks.

RE: Blair's 10-Year Leadership to End "Within Weeks"

----------------- Bulletin Message -----------------
From: The Man Common

    Blair's 10-Year Leadership to End "Within Weeks"

    Go to Original

    Tony Blair's decade at 10 Downing Street marks him out as one of those rare politicians who put their stamp on an era.

    But no sooner has that milestone been passed than the Blair era will come to an end, with the Prime Minister's resignation expected within weeks, or even days.

    There is almost universal agreement that Mr Blair's successor will be Chancellor Gordon Brown. But the apparent inevitability of this long-awaited transition masks a considerable degree of uncertainty about the era to come.

    Will a Brown premiership mark a radical break from the Blair administration? Or will the man who insists he was as much a progenitor as the PM of the New Labour project preside over a period of continuity?

    Will Mr Brown embark on a purge of Mr Blair's ministers and policies?

    And, perhaps most importantly, how long will the Brown era last?

    Conservatives have been busy over the last few years predicting that Brown will swing Labour to the left, ushering in a period of business-unfriendly, bureaucratic centralisation.

    But Mr Brown himself has been equally busy sending out signals that he will not be a creature of the left, voicing his support for nuclear power and the renewal of Britain's independent nuclear deterrent as well as loudly trumpeting his patriotism with calls for a Britishness day and pride in the flag.

    No-one doubts that Mr Brown is planning to hit the ground running with 100 days of eye-catching policy announcements to match the declaration of independence for the Bank of England he made within days of becoming Chancellor.

    Only a few in the Chancellor's inner circle know what those announcements will involve. Speculation revolves around the creation of a written constitution, a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq, NHS independence, scrapping ID cards or a Whitehall shake-up including the abolition of the Department of Trade and Industry.

    He is expected to reward key allies with top Cabinet posts, with Alistair Darling tipped to succeed him at the Treasury, promotions for Ed Balls, Douglas Alexander and Ed Miliband and a senior position for his campaign manager Jack Straw.

    But it remains to be seen whether he clears out ministers too closely linked with the Blairite past. David Miliband, who has ruled out a challenge for the top job, will almost certainly survive as a signal that Mr Brown wants to lead a "Cabinet of all the talents", but there are doubts over the future of close Blair allies like John Reid or Tessa Jowell.

    Mr Brown will also have to decide whether to appoint the victor of the deputy leadership race to be his Deputy Prime Minister.

    Although the deputy's contest is seen as a chance for Labour's grassroots and the unions to influence the shape of a Brown premiership, there is no requirement for the winner to become DPM, or indeed for the post to be filled at all.

    Left-wing candidate Jon Cruddas has said he does not want the DPM job, and there are others who Mr Brown would probably prefer not to see standing in for him during his holidays. Mr Prescott's old job could even go to Mr Straw if he is not sent to the Treasury or Foreign Office.

    Whatever the personnel of his Cabinet, Mr Brown faces an enormously more difficult economic and political climate than Mr Blair did when he arrived at Downing Street on a wave of euphoria in 1997.

    He will take office against the backdrop of possible charges in the cash-for-honours inquiry, rising inflation threatening to force up interest rates and no end in sight to the violence in Iraq.

    Rather than representing a clean break after years of Tory rule, as Mr Blair did, Mr Brown faces the far more daunting challenge of winning back voters disillusioned by a decade of Labour.

    And in place of the deeply unpopular John Major, he will face Tory leader David Cameron buoyed by months of comfortable opinion poll leads - with surveys suggesting the gap in the Conservatives' favour may even widen when Mr Brown takes over.

    After one of the longest waits for power ever seen, Mr Brown knows he has his work cut out if he is not to enjoy one of the shortest periods in power in British political history.

    Despite some speculation over a snap election in 2008, he will almost certainly wait until 2009 or 2010 to give himself time to turn the polls round and maximise his chances of winning a fourth election victory for Labour.

    The actual process by which Mr Brown - or, just conceivably, someone else - becomes Prime Minister has been set out by Labour's ruling National Executive Committee.

    Mr Blair's announcement of his resignation - accompanied by that of his deputy John Prescott - will not mean the immediate arrival of removal vans in Downing Street.

    The NEC will meet within 72 hours to finalise a timetable for seven-week contests for the leadership and deputy leadership, and would-be candidates will then have a week to file nomination papers bearing the signatures of 12.5% of Labour MPs - 45 names, including their own.

    Mr Brown will have no difficulty in clearing the nomination hurdle, but his two declared rivals - left-wing MPs John McDonnell and Michael Meacher - will struggle to do so.

    Even if they get onto the ballot paper, neither man will present any threat to the Chancellor's elevation. Indeed, he would probably welcome their candidacy as a chance to demonstrate his mainstream credentials.

    The prospects of a challenge from the "Blairite" centre seem to have receded in recent weeks, with Mr Miliband saying he will vote for Brown and problems at the Home Office making a leadership bid by Mr Reid less credible. Long-shot Blairite candidates Charles Clarke and Alan Milburn have not ruled out running in order to ensure the Chancellor is not anointed unopposed.

    If the leadership is contested, the winner will have to secure more than 50% of Labour's electoral college, which is divided three ways between 380 MPs and MEPs, 200,000 party members and 3.2 million trade union affiliates.

    Even without a rival, the NEC's rules require Mr Brown to attend hustings alongside the deputy leadership candidates before finally taking the crown he has waited a decade for.

    But he will not have to face an "affirmative vote" in the absence of a challenger, as some Labour figures demanded.

    The new leader - and deputy leader - will be announced at a weekend meeting of representatives of each section of the electoral college, probably in late June or early July.

    Candidates so far declared for the deputy leadership are Hilary Benn, Hazel Blears, Jon Cruddas, Peter Hain, Harriet Harman and Alan Johnson.

    Land-Swap Plan Causes Trouble for Congressman

    By John R. Wilke
    The Wall Street Journal

    Go to Original

Mr. Renzi offers field to mining companies; Grand Jury is active.

    Superior, Arizona - As they dig for nickel, copper and other commodities in the far corners of the earth, the world's largest mining companies, Rio Tinto PLC and BHP Billiton Ltd., are used to solving geological problems. Here, though, the problems they encountered were political.

    North America's largest copper lode is believed to be buried more than a mile beneath Apache Leap, the stark red cliffs that loom above this storied Old West town about an hour east of Phoenix. Resolution Copper Co., a joint venture between Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton, wants to mine it. But first it needs Congress to approve a federal land exchange, under which Resolution would swap 5,000 acres of private land for 3,000 acres of public land near its planned mine.

    In exchange for supporting the bill, the local congressman, Rick Renzi, a Republican, insisted on something in return: He wanted Resolution to buy, as part of the land swap, a 480-acre alfalfa field near his hometown of Sierra Vista, according to documents and people involved in the deal.

    Resolution executives refused. For starters, they thought the land was overpriced, people close to the deal say. More troubling, they discovered it was owned by Mr. Renzi's former business partner, these people say.

    Resolution wasn't the only party troubled by the congressman's demands. His chief of staff resigned and began cooperating secretly with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to witnesses and others close to the case. The FBI began a preliminary inquiry that was first reported in October, just before Mr. Renzi was elected to a third term.

    That investigation has now become a formal public-corruption probe by a federal grand jury in Tucson. On Thursday, the grand jury authorized a search warrant of a Renzi family business. Investigators have uncovered evidence that Mr. Renzi received a cash payment from his former business partner, funneled through a family wine company, after a second investor group pursuing an unrelated land swap agreed to pay $4 million for the alfalfa field, according to people contacted in the course of the two-year investigation.

    Mr. Renzi denies any wrongdoing and says that he intends to cooperate with the investigation. The search of the family business, he said in a statement Friday, is "the first step toward getting the truth out." His lawyer says the cash payment he received was to settle an unrelated debt.

    The case could add fuel to the firestorm over the Bush administration's firing of federal prosecutors late last year. Paul Charlton, the U.S. Attorney who had been overseeing the case, was among those dismissed at the behest of the White House. A spokesman for Mr. Renzi dismissed as "a political hatchet job" the suggestion that Mr. Charlton's firing was connected to the probe of Mr. Renzi. On Thursday, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told Congress that none of the dismissals were politically motivated, and said the Justice Department is committed to battling corruption.

    The Renzi case is the latest in a wave of public-corruption investigations of local and federal officials. At least five members of Congress - three Republicans and two Democrats - are now under federal criminal scrutiny. Two former members, both Republicans, have gone to prison in the past year. Voter polls have suggested that the investigations were one reason Republicans lost control of Congress last November.

    The Renzi case spotlights the potential for abuse in the murky world of legislated land swaps, which have become more common in recent years. Thousands of acres of public land worth hundreds of millions of dollars change hands each year through narrow special-interest bills. There is little public scrutiny, and often no vote is recorded in Congress. Some swaps serve public goals, such as protecting wild habitat. Others enrich private interests at taxpayers' expense, sometimes sidestepping federal rules in the process.

    The proposed Arizona land exchange would sweep aside a 1954 order by President Eisenhower protecting national forest in the area, including Oak Flats, a campground located above the proposed mine. "Yet another piece of land that was being 'permanently' protected is being put on the block because a private interest has use for it," Janine Blaeloch, director of the nonprofit Western Lands Project, complained to Congress last year.

    Resolution, which declined to comment about its contacts with Mr. Renzi, has said it hopes to sink 7,000-foot shafts into the ground to reach the rich vein of copper ore. It has worked for years to win support for the mine, reaching out to local officials, environmentalists and rock-climbing groups. Arizona's governor and most members of its congressional delegation are backers. The governor told a Senate hearing last year the project could bring 1,000 jobs and $1 billion or more to the state's economy.

    Although Superior has long been a mining town, it has escaped some of the ravages of open-pit mining that have scarred nearby towns. It is rich in natural beauty, including otherworldly rock formations and steep cliffs that draw thousands of climbers each year. Mayor Michael Hing sees the new mine as a way to escape the boom-and-bust cycles that have whipsawed the town for more than a century, ever since silver was discovered in 1875 at the Silver Queen mine and hundreds flocked to town, including famed gunslingers Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp.

    In order to secure the use of the government land for mining, Resolution has proposed buying a number of parcels elsewhere and transferring them to government entities for uses completely unrelated to mining. The town of Superior, for example, would get title to the town graveyard, now on federal land. Climbers would get another place to explore. Resolution says the vast Apache Leap rock escarpment - so named because Apache warriors on horseback are said to have jumped to their deaths to evade capture - would be protected. The San Carlos Apache tribe opposes the mine, citing concerns that culturally significant areas would be disturbed.

    Mr. Renzi told Resolution in 2005 that his support for the land swap would hinge in part on whether it helped fulfill a goal to cut water consumption along the San Carlos River, which slices through the desert far from the mining area, in southern Arizona, participants in the deal say. Fort Huachuca, a big U.S. Army base nearby, was under court order to cut water consumption, and it had been seeking help to retire farmland near the river. Mr. Renzi has longstanding ties to the base, the economic engine of the area. He grew up near it, and his father, retired U.S. Army Gen. Eugene Renzi, is its former commandant, now employed by one of its largest contractors, ManTech Corp.

    Resolution proposed buying and handing over to the government thousands of acres of bird and wildlife habitat along the banks of the San Carlos, which would further the water-conservation goal.

    In early 2005, however, Resolution balked at buying the 480-acre alfalfa field owned by Mr. Renzi's business partner, James Sandlin. Mr. Renzi then turned to another investment group, called the Petrified Forest group, that was looking to put together a unrelated land swap. That group, which included Bruce Babbitt, the former governor, agreed that April to buy the patch of farmland for nearly $4 million, says Philip Aries, a land-swap expert that was part of the group.

    "Congressman Renzi told me that the purchase of the Sandlin parcel was a matter of national security, and that it was key to ensuring the viability of Fort Huachuca," Mr. Aries says. "He said that if we were to buy it before" upcoming hearings about the possible closure of the base, "he would give our swap priority - a 'free pass,' he said, would be sure to get through the Natural Resources Committee," thereby ensuring its approval.

    Mr. Aries says that after his group's purchase of the alfalfa field went through in 2005, Resolution complained that the Petrified Forest group had gotten priority treatment, and Mr. Renzi dropped his support for that group's land swap.

    Mr. Aries, Resolution executives and others involved in the proposed transactions have been interviewed about the matter by the FBI, people close to the case say. Mr. Aries declines to discuss those conversations, or other details of his group's dealings with Mr. Renzi. Mr. Sandlin, the former owner of the alfalfa field, declines to comment.

    Public records show that Mr. Sandlin and Mr. Renzi became business partners in 2001, when Mr. Sandlin bought shares of Fountain Realty & Development, one of Mr. Renzi's companies. In 2002 and 2003, Mr. Sandlin paid his partner between $1 million and $5 million for Mr. Renzi's stake in that business, according to House financial-disclosure records.

    In 2004, a Federal Election Commission audit found that Mr. Renzi had received a total of $369,000 in illegal corporate funds from Fountain in the 2002 election cycle. It found that Fountain had shifted $131,000 of this through Mr. Renzi's personal accounts to the Renzi for Congress campaign account - and that at least $70,000 of it was put back into Mr. Renzi's personal account.

    Mr. Sandlin bought the alfalfa field in 2003 for about $1 million, land records show. The farmland, more than a mile wide, with mountains rising on two sides, lies fallow today.

    One focus of the FBI's current investigation is whether Mr. Renzi profited from the sale of Mr. Sandlin's land to the Petrified Forest group, people close to the case say. Federal investigators have been asking questions about a May 2005 payment of $200,000 from Mr. Sandlin to Mr. Renzi, which was sent the same day that Mr. Sandlin received the first payment from the Petrified Forest group, these people say. The payment went to a wine company owned by Mr. Renzi, which was sold to his father days later, public records show.

    Phoenix lawyer Grant Woods, one of Mr. Renzi's attorneys, said Friday that Mr. Sandlin sent Mr. Renzi the $200,000 to settle a debt stemming from a previous business transaction involving land in northeast Arizona. "The note was due, and he had to pay it off," Mr. Wood said. He said Mr. Renzi was not pushing the sale of the Sandlin property to help his former business partner. "He was working to solve the water problems of the San Pedro River and help save Fort Huachuca," Mr. Woods said. When Mr. Renzi was pressing Resolution and then the Petrified Forest group to buy the land, "he did not know Mr. Sandlin had an interest in that land," Mr. Wood said.

    Executives of Resolution and participants in the Petrified Forest group are cooperating with the FBI in its investigation, people close to the case said. The Petrified Forest group is not being investigated for any possible wrongdoing.

    The FBI is also looking into the congressman's dealings with Fort Huachuca, these people say.

    Mr. Renzi said Friday he would take a leave of absence from the House intelligence committee "until the matter is resolved." John Boehner, the House Republican leader, had warned colleagues in a letter earlier this year that "clear likelihood of serious transgressions will lead to suspension from important committee positions; guilt will lead to immediate and severe consequences," according to Congressional Quarterly.

    Mr. Renzi continues to serve on the House Natural Resources Committee, which handles land-swap legislation.

    Resolution is pressing ahead with its effort to line up congressional support for a land swap. Bruno Hegner, who was Resolution's president when Mr. Renzi proposed that the company buy the alfalfa field, was so troubled by the incident that he wrote a letter detailing what happened and mailed it to himself, people close to the case said. He wanted a postmarked record of what occurred, these people say. That letter is now in the hands of the FBI, they say.


RE: Posse Comitatus Act in critical condition and fading fast!

From: Aaron Russo's America: Freedom To Fascism

Call your congressmen!!! Demand that they support Posse Comitatus and prevent the United States from being a military state ruled by martial law!!!

You can reach them at:



Posse Comitatus Act in critical condition and fading fast!

In October of 2006, The Bush administration secretly slipped yet another unconstitutional provision into his massive budget legislation. The US Congress ran it through the legislative process with little to no scrutiny. The provision that the President signed into law weakens two immensely important protections available to the American people.

The first is Posse Comitatus, which prevents the military and the National Guard under federal control, from engaging in law enforcement activities inside the United States. This doctrinal provision draws a distinct line between Civil governance and and the military, thereby rendering military rule in American society, an illegality.
The Insurrection Act of 1807, delineates exemptions to posse comitatus and serves to limit the president's use of the military to enforce the laws. It bars the president from suppressing the people's right to stand up to abuses by a state that is violating federal law or depriving people of constitutional rights, even if it results in lawlessness, insurrection and rebellion.

The new law gives the president the power to use the military as a domestic law enforcement body, essentially turning them into a well armed police force. The danger of this is that soldiers are trained to fight wars, where killing is a means to achieving an objective. Domestic law enforcement is trained very differently. Killing for police forces is theoretically to be used only as a last result in self defense incidnts or in preventing the killing of innocents.

The parameters now established by the new law, allows the president not only to use the military in response to pandemic outbreaks, natural disasters, or terrorist attacks, but for so called "other conditions" that are not defined by the legislation. Historically, this translates to: "Whatever the president deems the use of the military to enforce laws under any circumstance to be appropriate is therefore appropriate."

In a televised address on September 15, 2005, President Bush said, when speaking about hurricane Katrina, "It is now clear that a challenge on this scale requires greater federal authority and a broader role for the armed forces--the institution of our government most capable of massive logistical operations on a moment's notice." (Emphasis added).

Senator John Warner (R-Va.), chair of the Armed Services Committee, using hurricane Katrina as a justification Katrina, suggested that the weakening Posse Comitatus should be pursued, thereby allowing the use of the military as a police force. The Pentagon joined in and stated through its spokesman Lawrence Di that Posse Comitatus is a "very archaic" law that interferes with the president's ability to respond to a crisis.

When you combine these developments with the legislation passed immediately after 911 under the name "Patriot Act," allowing the president to identify any individuals as "enemy combatants," the scenario is:

The president may arbitrarily declare a state of emergency justified by the occurrence of undefined "other conditions."
The president may deploy the U.S. military to "enforce laws" and arrest citizens through the use of military force.
The president may then conduct secretive military tribunals to try the "enemy combatants" (a term also left undefined in the legislation) in which evidence may be presented "on the honor of the Fed. Government's word that the evidence is good."
(Note: the evidence may be kept secret if it is determined that reveling it threatens national security.)

When President Bush signed this into law, he made no mention of its existence. No public hearings were held in the, at the time, Republican controlled Congress, nor were any of the state's governors informed or consulted as to how this would affect the law enforcement efforts within their borders.

As I stated in earlier blogs, the erosion of civil liberties and the rise of tyranny never happen over night. They occur slowly and secretly. By the time the public figures it out, it's usually too late.

Devastating' Bill Moyers Probe of Press and Iraq Coming This Week
By Greg Mitchell

Published: April 21, 2007 9:00 PM ET

NEW YORK (Commentary) The most powerful indictment of the news media for falling down in its duties in the run-up to the war in Iraq will appear next Wednesday, a 90-minute PBS broadcast called "Buying the War," which marks the return of "Bill Moyers Journal." E&P was sent a preview DVD and a draft transcript for the program this week.

While much of the evidence of the media's role as cheerleaders for the war presented here is not new, it is skillfully assembled, with many fresh quotes from interviews (with the likes of Tim Russert and Walter Pincus) along with numerous embarrassing examples of past statements by journalists and pundits that proved grossly misleading or wrong. Several prominent media figures, prodded by Moyers, admit the media failed miserably, though few take personal responsibility.

The war continues today, now in its fifth year, with the death toll for Americans and Iraqis rising again -- yet Moyers points out, "the press has yet to come to terms with its role in enabling the Bush Administration to go to war on false pretenses."

Among the few heroes of this devastating film are reporters with the Knight Ridder/McClatchy bureau in D.C. Tragically late, Walter Isaacson, who headed CNN, observes, "The people at Knight Ridder were calling the colonels and the lieutenants and the people in the CIA and finding out, you know, that the intelligence is not very good. We should've all been doing that."

At the close, Moyers mentions some of the chief proponents of the war who refused to speak to him for this program, including Thomas Friedman, Bill Kristol, Roger Ailes, Charles Krauthammer, Judith Miller, and William Safire.

But Dan Rather, the former CBS anchor, admits, "I don't think there is any excuse for, you know, my performance and the performance of the press in general in the roll up to the war…We didn't dig enough. And we shouldn't have been fooled in this way." Bob Simon, who had strong doubts about evidence for war, was asked by Moyers if he pushed any of the top brass at CBS to "dig deeper," and he replies, "No, in all honesty, with a thousand mea culpas….nope, I don't think we followed up on this."

Instead he covered the marketing of the war in a "softer" way, explaining to Moyers: "I think we all felt from the beginning that to deal with a subject as explosive as this, we should keep it, in a way, almost light – if that doesn't seem ridiculous."

Moyers replies: "Going to war, almost light."

Walter Isaacson is pushed hard by Moyers and finally admits, "We didn't question our sources enough." But why? Isaacson notes there was "almost a patriotism police" after 9/11 and when the network showed civilian casualties it would get phone calls from advertisers and the administration and "big people in corporations were calling up and saying, 'You're being anti-American here.'"

Moyers then mentions that Isaacson had sent a memo to staff, leaked to the Washington Post, in which he declared, "It seems perverse to focus too much on the casualties or hardship in Afghanistan" and ordered them to balance any such images with reminders of 9/11. Moyers also asserts that editors at the Panama City (Fla.) News-Herald received an order from above, "Do not use photos on Page 1A showing civilian casualties. Our sister paper has done so and received hundreds and hundreds of threatening emails."

Walter Pincus of the Washington Post explains that even at his paper reporters "do worry about sort of getting out ahead of something." But Moyers gives credit to Charles J. Hanley of The Associated Press for trying, in vain, to draw more attention to United Nations inspectors failing to find WMD in early 2003.

The disgraceful press reaction to Colin Powell's presentation at the United Nations seems like something out of Monty Python, with one key British report cited by Powell being nothing more than a student's thesis, downloaded from the Web -- with the student later threatening to charge U.S. officials with "plagiarism."

Phil Donahue recalls that he was told he could not feature war dissenters alone on his MSNBC talk show and always had to have "two conservatives for every liberal." Moyers resurrects a leaked NBC memo about Donahue's firing that claimed he "presents a difficult public face for NBC in a time of war. At the same time our competitors are waving the flag at every opportunity."

Moyers also throws some stats around: In the year before the invasion William Safire (who predicted a "quick war" with Iraqis cheering their liberators) wrote "a total of 27 opinion pieces fanning the sparks of war." The Washington Post carried at least 140 front-page stories in that same period making the administration's case for attack. In the six months leading to the invasion the Post would "editorialize in favor of the war at least 27 times."

Of the 414 Iraq stories broadcast on NBC, ABC and CBS nightly news in the six months before the war, almost all could be traced back to sources solely in the White House, Pentagon or State Dept., Moyers tells Russert, who offers no coherent reply.

The program closes on a sad note, with Moyers pointing out that "so many of the advocates and apologists for the war are still flourishing in the media." He then runs a pre-war clip of President Bush declaring, "We cannot wait for the final proof: the smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud." Then he explains: "The man who came up with it was Michael Gerson, President Bush's top speechwriter.

"He has left the White House and has been hired by the Washington Post as a columnist."

Frank Rich: Iraq Is the Ultimate Aphrodisiac

Frank Rich looks at the problems that await the Bush Cabal as their little Neo-Con fantasy world slowly melts down.

--The New York Times, April 22, 2007

President Bush has skipped the funerals of the troops he sent to Iraq. He took his sweet time to get to Katrina-devastated New Orleans. But last week he raced to Virginia Tech with an alacrity not seen since he hustled from Crawford to Washington to sign a bill interfering in Terri Schiavo's end-of-life medical care. Mr. Bush assumes the role of mourner in chief on a selective basis, and, as usual with the decider, the decisive factor is politics. Let Walter Reed erupt in scandal, and he'll take six weeks to show his face - and on a Friday at that, to hide the story in the Saturday papers. The heinous slaughter in Blacksburg, Va., by contrast, was a rare opportunity for him to ostentatiously feel the pain of families whose suffering cannot be blamed on the administration.

But he couldn't inspire the kind of public acclaim that followed his post-9/11 visit to ground zero or the political comeback that buoyed his predecessor after Oklahoma City. The cancer on the Bush White House, Iraq, is now spreading too fast. The president had barely returned to Washington when the empty hope of the "surge" was hideously mocked by a one-day Baghdad civilian death toll more than five times that of Blacksburg's. McClatchy Newspapers reported that the death rate for American troops over the past six months was at its all-time high for this war.

At home, the president is also hobbled by the Iraq cancer's metastasis - the twin implosions of Alberto Gonzales and Paul Wolfowitz. Technically, both men have been pilloried for sins unrelated to the war. The attorney general has repeatedly been caught changing his story about the extent of his involvement in purging eight federal prosecutors. The Financial Times caught the former deputy secretary of defense turned World Bank president privately dictating the extravagant terms of a State Department sinecure for a crony (a k a romantic partner) that showers her with more take-home pay than Condoleezza Rice.

Yet each man's latest infractions, however serious, are mere misdemeanors next to their roles in the Iraq war. What's being lost in the Beltway uproar is the extent to which the lying, cronyism and arrogance showcased by the current scandals are of a piece with the lying, cronyism and arrogance that led to all the military funerals that Mr. Bush dares not attend. Having slept through the fraudulent selling of the war, Washington is still having trouble confronting the big picture of the Bush White House. Its dense web of deceit is the deliberate product of its amoral culture, not a haphazard potpourri of individual blunders.

Mr. Gonzales's politicizing of the Justice Department is a mere bagatelle next to his role as White House counsel in 2002, when he helped shape the administration's legal argument to justify torture. That paved the way for Abu Ghraib, the episode that destroyed America's image and gave terrorists a moral victory. But his efforts to sabotage national security didn't end there. In a front-page exposé lost in the Imus avalanche two Sundays ago, The Washington Post uncovered Mr. Gonzales's reckless role in vetting the nomination of Bernard Kerik as secretary of homeland security in December 2004.

Mr. Kerik, you may recall, withdrew from consideration for that cabinet post after a week of embarrassing headlines. Back then, the White House ducked any culpability for the mess by attributing it to a single legal issue, a supposedly undocumented nanny, and by pinning it on a single, nonadministration scapegoat, Mr. Kerik's longtime patron, Rudy Giuliani. The president's spokesman at the time, Scott McClellan, told reporters that the White House had had "no reason to believe" that Mr. Kerik lied during his vetting process and that it would be inaccurate to say that process had been rushed.

Thanks to John Solomon and Peter Baker of The Post, we now know that Mr. McClellan's spin was no more accurate than his exoneration of Karl Rove and Scooter Libby in the Wilson leak case. The Kerik vetting process was indeed rushed - by Mr. Gonzales - and the administration had every reason to believe that it was turning over homeland security to a liar. Mr. Gonzales was privy from the get-go to a Kerik dossier ablaze with red flags pointing to "questionable financial deals, an ethics violation, allegations of mismanagement and a top deputy prosecuted for corruption," not to mention a "friendship with a businessman who was linked to organized crime." Yet Mr. Gonzales and the president persisted in shoving Mr. Kerik into the top job of an already troubled federal department encompassing 22 agencies, 180,000 employees and the very safety of America in the post-9/11 era.

Mr. Kerik may soon face federal charges, and at a most inopportune time for the Giuliani presidential campaign. But it's as a paradigm of the Bush White House's waging of the Iraq war that the Kerik case is most telling. The crucial point to remember is this: Even had there been no alleged improprieties in the former police chief's New York résumé, there still would have been his public record in Iraq to disqualify him from any administration job.

The year before Mr. Kerik's nomination to the cabinet, he was dispatched by the president to take charge of training the Iraqi police - and completely failed at that mission. As Rajiv Chandrasekaran recounts in his invaluable chronicle of Green Zone shenanigans, "Imperial Life in the Emerald City," Mr. Kerik slept all day and held only two staff meetings, one upon arrival and one for the benefit of a Times reporter doing a profile. Rather than train Iraqi police, Mr. Kerik gave upbeat McCain-esque appraisals of the dandy shopping in Baghdad's markets.

Had Mr. Kerik actually helped stand up an Iraqi police force instead of hastening its descent into a haven for sectarian death squads, there might not now be extended tours for American troops in an open-ended escalation of the war. But in the White House's priorities, rebuilding Iraq came in a poor third to cronyism and domestic politics. Mr. Kerik's P.R. usefulness as a symbol of 9/11 was particularly irresistible to an administration that has exploited the carnage of 9/11 in ways both grandiose (to gin up the Iraq invasion) and tacky (in 2004 campaign ads).

Mr. Kerik was an exploiter of 9/11 in his own right: he had commandeered an apartment assigned to ground zero police and rescue workers to carry out his extramarital tryst with the publisher Judith Regan. The sex angle of Mr. Wolfowitz's scandal is a comparable symptom of the hubris that warped the judgment of those in power after 9/11. Not only did he help secure Shaha Riza her over-the-top raise in 2005, but as The Times reported, he also helped get her a junket to Iraq when he was riding high at the Pentagon in 2003. No one seems to know what she actually accomplished there, but the bill was paid by a Defense Department contractor that has since come under official scrutiny for its noncompetitive contracts and poor performance. So it went with the entire Iraq fiasco.

You don't have to be a cynic to ask if the White House's practice of bestowing better jobs on those who bungled the war might be a form of hush money. Mr. Wolfowitz was promoted to the World Bank despite a Pentagon record that included (in part) his prewar hyping of bogus intelligence about W.M.D. and a nonexistent 9/11-Saddam connection; his assurance to the world that Iraq's oil revenues would pay for reconstruction; and his public humiliation of Gen. Eric Shinseki after the general dared tell Congress (correctly) that several hundred thousand troops would be needed to secure Iraq after the invasion. Once the war began, Mr. Wolfowitz cited national security to bar businesses from noncoalition countries (like Germany) from competing for major contracts in Iraq. That helped ensure the disastrous monopoly of Halliburton and other White House-connected companies, including the one that employed Ms. Riza.

Had Iraqi reconstruction, like the training of Iraqi police, not been betrayed by politics and cronyism, the Iraq story might have a different ending. But maybe not all that different. The cancer on the Bush White House connects and contaminates all its organs. It's no surprise that one United States attorney fired without plausible cause by the Gonzales Justice Department, Carol Lam, was in hot pursuit of defense contractors with administration connections. Or that another crony brought by Mr. Wolfowitz to the World Bank was caught asking the Air Force secretary to secure a job for her brother at a defense contractor while she was overseeing aspects of the Air Force budget at the White House. A government with values this sleazy couldn't possibly win a war.

Like the C.I.A. leak case, each new scandal is filling in a different piece of the elaborate White House scheme to cover up the lies that took us into Iraq and the failures that keep us mired there. As the cover-up unravels and Congress steps up its confrontation over the war's endgame, our desperate president is reverting to his old fear-mongering habit of invoking 9/11 incessantly in every speech. The more we learn, the more it's clear that he's the one with reason to be afraid.

Blue Beam Project
A Simulated "Second Coming" and the Reemergence of New "MONTAUK" Type Projects


What is the Blue Beam Project?
by David Openheimer

It involves two things. A technologically simulated "second coming" and the reemmrgence of new "MONTAUK" type projects that have the ability to take up a whole bunch of people as in a "rapture" type of situation and whisk the whole bunch into never-never land. Ironically, portions of the holographic projections have the potential for changing the planet into oneness with God. Unfortunately, this operates on the premise that Man shall somehow become God in human form and control other Men and dictate all actions and thoughts. The calculated resistance to the new religion, the New World Order and the new "Messiah" will entail human loss on a massive scale in the ensuing "holy wars".The "BLUE BEAM PROJECT" will pretend to be the universal fulfillment of the prophecies of old; as major an event as that which took place 2000 years ago. In principle, it will make use of the sky as a holographic projection screen for space-based laser-generating satellites (star wars). These projectors will project simultaneous images to the four corners of the planet, in every language by region. It deals with the religious aspect of the NEW WORLD ORDER.

The "system" has already been tested. Holographic projections of the "CHRIST IMAGE" have already been seen in some remote desert areas. These have only been reported in tabloid papers, so they are instantly rendered moot. They can also project images of alien craft, aliens, monsters, angels - you name it. Computers will coordinate the satellites and software will run the show-and-tell.

Hollography is based on very nearly identical signals combining to produce and image, or hologram, with depth perception. This is equally applicable to acoustic (ELF,VLF,LF) waves as it is to optical phenomena.

Specifically, the "show" will consist of laser projections of multiple holographic images to different parts of the planet, each receiving different images according to the predominating regional religious faith. Not a single area will be excluded. With computer animation and sound effects appearing to come from the depths of space, astonished followers of the various creeds will witness their own returned Messiah in spectacularly convincing lifelike realness.

The various images of Christ, Mohammed, Buddha, Krishna, etc., will merge into ONE after "correct explanation" of the mysteries, prophecies and revelations are disclosed. This "ONE GOD" will in fact function as the "Anti-Christ", who will "explain" that the various scriptures "have been misunderstood"- that the religious of old are responsible for turning brother against brother, nation against nation - that the religions of the world must be abolished to make way for the GOLDEN AGE (NEW AGE) of the One World Religion, representing the One God they see before them.

Naturally, this superbly staged, full-scale production will result in social and religious disorder on a massive scale. Wonder what the television transmitters of religious networks will be doing on that day ?

But before all this, they have to go through four different steps in order to get to Project Blue Beam.

1: The first step concerns the breakdown of all archaological knowledge. It deals with staging earthquakes at certain precise locations around the planet where supposed new "discoveries" will finally explain (for them) that the meanings of the basic doctrines of all the world`s major religions are "wrong." This falsification will be used to make the population believe that all religious doctrine has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. The falsification started with the film 2001: A Space Odessy, the TV-series STAR TREK, the STAR WARS films, E.T., all of which deal with space "invasion" and "protection". JURASSIC PARK, was to push the theory of evolution.

2: The second step deals with the gigantic space show: 3D optical holograms and sounds, laser projections of multiple holographic images in different parts of the world, each receiving a different image, according to its predetermined original national religious faith. This new "god" image will talk in all languages. As an exemple, the Soviets have manufactured the advanced computers and have programmed them with the minute psychological particles based upon their studies of the anatomy and biology of the human body, as well as their studies on the anatomy, chemistry and electricity of the humain brain. These computers have also been fed with the different languages of the world.

3: The third step deals with telepathic electronic two-way communication, where ELF(Extra Low Frequency), VLF (Very Low Frequency), and LF (Low Frequency) waves will reach the people of the earth through the insides of their brains, making each person believe that his own God is speaking to him from within his owm soul. Such rays, from satellite, are fed from the memory of computers that store much data about the human being and his languages. These rays will then interlace and interweave with the natural thinking processes to form what we call the ARTIFICIAL TALK.

4: The fourth step involves universal supernatural manifestations using electronic means. This step contains three different orientations: The first one is to make mankind believe that an alien invasion is about to occur upon every major city on the earth. This is to push each major nation into using its nuclear capability to strike back. In this manner, it would put each of these nations in a state of full disarmament before the United Nations after the false attack. The second is to make the "christian" believe that a major rapture is occurring, with a simple "played" divine imtervention of an alleged "good" alien force coming to save the good people from a brutal satanic attack. Its goal is to get rid of all significant opposition to the NEW WORLD ORDER. The third orientation is a mixture of electronic and supernatural forces. The waves (frequencies) used at that time will allow supernatural forces to travel through fiber optics cable, coaxial cable,electric and telephone lines in order to penetrate all electronic equipment and appliances that will by then all have a special microship installed. The goal of this step deals with the materialization of satanic ghosts, spectres, and poltergeists all across the globe in order to push all populations to the edge of a wave of suicide, killing and permanent psychological disorder. After that night of the THOUSAND STARS, HUMANITY IS BELIEVED TO BE READY FOR THEM TO ENTER IN A "NEW MESSIAH" TO REESTABLISH PEACE EVERYWHERE AT ANY COST, EVEN AT THE COST OF FREEDOM.

Thank you:

If there is even a remote possibility that this scenario can be true wouldnt you fight against it? Let's just say you could possibly be reincarnated back into this earth. Even if there is a 1% chance that this could happen wouldnt you fight back against what is going to happen in the near future in the scenario that I give you below.
Ok here we go. The secret plan of the illuminati would to:

1. Control all people with divide and conquer scenario with war and famine.
2. Add tagging devices to all people RFID Chips to the forehead or to the hand so that they are more controlled like cattle.
3. Add robots for labor then kill off more people.
4. Kill more people off of the world and enslave the rest to do have sex with you or do work for you.
5. Cloning using genetics and science so that you could live forever and everyone else will have to be reincarnated into the slave society.
The illuminati have already made these plans to just this, if this is a remote possibility that this scenario could happen, Wouldnt you fight against this with every tooth and nail. Wouldnt you fight the real freedom of your life. Even if its just a remote possibility. Even if there is a 1% chance that this could happen?!

The Masonic Version of History and the Ultimate Deception
- by Wes Penre, June 30, 2004

Now comes the touchy part: religion! What about religion? What about the Bible? At least we have the Bible to fall back on, the Word of God, don’t we?

Or do we really? Let us think about it for a while. The rest of this article is pure speculation, but needs to be discussed, because there are indications pointing in this direction. If the Bible (and other Holy Scriptures from other religions as well) is just a blueprint for the Illuminati Agenda, how would that fit into the picture?

Right here many readers will probably start getting upset and think I have gone too far, but at least give it a chance and ponder it. I am not saying that what I suggest is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but let us consider the idea for a while. The Christian society for example, considers the Bible being the Words of God and takes it literally. But if we look at it and dig a little deeper, we notice that the New Testament for one thing, is not unique. It seems like most cultures have a similar story to tell: how a savior was born from a virgin, later killed, arisen from the dead with a promise to return in the future (second coming). It repeats itself similarly all the way back to the story of Osiris, Isis and Horus – sounds more like occult symbolism instead of actual events. Also, we know for certain that the Bible has been severely tampered with. The King James Version (KJV) for example, was revised, and the revision was supervised by Francis Bacon among others, Bacon who was a high initiate in several secret societies, and a Grand Master of the Rosicrucian Order (another occult society). King James himself was a prominent Freemason (see specifically at the bottom of the page, underlined). Christians dispute this whole-heartedly, but the evidence speaks for itself, in this case the source comes from the Freemasons themselves.

And what about the Book of Revelations? I don’t know how many Christians have sent emails to me and praised my website, Illuminati News, but almost always point out that there is nothing we can do about this, because it is written in the Bible that this will happen. Anti-Christ will rule for a short time before the Second Coming of Christ, and there will be rapture for the believers. There is no reason to intervene; things will sort themselves out as a part of Gods Great Plan, and the War is already won, because God has already defeated Satan. Unfortunately many people will suffer and die before peace comes, but this is inevitable. So the story goes.

What about if this is the ultimate deception? What about if the Bible is a symbolic, Illuminati blueprint, given to the people as a Holy Scripture, to follow literally? If this is true, what would the consequences be?

The consequences would be that the religious people of the world (quite a big percentage) would fail to intervene, even if they saw the New World Order coming and understood the meaning of it. Religious wars would break out due to contradictions between religions and scriptures, and lots of people would die. Illuminati priests would lead the sheeple in the direction their man-made God(s) guide(s) them; toward death, fanatic sacrifice, and genocide. An “Anti-Christ” (a One World Dictator) would eventually be sat on the World Throne to rule, and still only a few people would intervene, because according to the scriptures the Anti-Christ will only rule for a short time before the Kingdom of Jesus will be a reality – 1,000 years of peace(1), and it is just a matter of waiting it out. Isn’t this what is actually happening, about to happen, and has been happening throughout history? Doesn’t this fit extremely well into the Illuminati Agenda, where religion keeps us in check and becomes a brilliant tool for keeping the population down for easier control, no matter WHICH religion you belong to, as they are all man-made?

Now, regarding Christianity. What about if this is what they WANT us to believe: the Anti-Christ will rise momentarily but will be defeated, followed by 1,000 years of peace? How about if there will be no rapture and the World Dictator will be sat on the throne to rule over a United World without borders, in an ultimate dictatorship? When Christians and others realize they have been deceived, it is too late. The Illuminati have already taken over.

Here many Christians would object and say that the Illuminati hate Christians and their goal is to destroy the Christian religion and kill all Christians. True, but don’t they have to? If they invented the religion in the first place, a part of the propaganda would be just that – to hate Christians. This makes the whole scenario look more real. I don’t believe that the Illuminati hate Christians more than they hate everybody else.

The Bible warns us about ‘False Prophets’ in the End Times. To Christians I would probably be one of them. However, still considering the Bible being an Illuminati blueprint and a symbolic writing, wouldn’t that be a good thing for the Illuminati to warn believers about: people like me who’s only purpose is to try and expose the Enemy and find some truth, to be considered a ‘False Prophet’ so that hopefully no one will listen? Keeps the people under continuous control, doesn’t it? Or rather, they have US control EACH OTHER, so THEY don’t even have to bother with it that much; like puppets we follow their instructions exactly per the book. In the meantime the Illuminati in their arrogance, without any significant resistance, can continue their ‘Great Work of the Ages’, free from any serious interruptions and distractions.

Personally, I believe there is a God, or a creative, collective force we may call God, above all this mess. However, I don’t think we can find "Him" in any of the Earthly religions, but rather on individuals journeys inside ourselves..
