Pathway in the Sea
Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

I abbreviated the previous message by this title due to pressing personal business. Now, let me bring the message into relevance to current socio-political trends and events.
Back in 2003 I e-mailed compositions that presented the idea (then unheard of) that policies purporting to advance group rights (such as gay, women's, atheist's, affirmative action, etc.) are actually deleterious to individual liberties and rights, and, in fact, are antithetical to the intent of the Constitutional Bill of Rights to protect individual rights and liberties from intrusion and deprivation by the State. Group Right Advocacy is a pretext whereby those who make government policy can circumvent Constitutional limits to the reach, into individual lives, of those policies. In summary, group-based social policies, such as "political correctness" and "hate crime" legislation, are antithetical to the intent of the Bill of Rights as expressed in such articles as the First Amendment, and as such, are treasonous.
Arnold Schwarzenegger gave a speech to the Republican National Convention in 2004. In it, he said:
My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans, how do you know if you are a Republican? Well, I['ll] tell you how.
If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government, then you are a Republican.
If you believe that a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group, then you are a Republican.
If you believe that your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does, then you are a Republican.
If you believe -- If you believe that our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children, then you are a Republican.
If you believe -- If you believe that this country, not the United Nations, is best hope for democracy, then you are a Republican.
And ladies and gentlemen -- And ladies and gentlemen, if you believe that we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism, then you are a Republican!
Now there's another way you can tell you're [a] Republican. You have faith in free enterprise, faith in the resourcefulness of the American people, and faith in the U.S. economy. And to those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: "Don't be economic girlie men!"
Get this. You are not a disenfranchised, disinherited American Citizen and patriot. No! You are a "Republican". By implication, Republican office holders supposedly represent your interests. By inference, the Godless, amoral, predatory, parasitic, economically, socially, morally,and militarily corrosive and criminal political agenda of the Democratic Party is not treason, it's a Constitutionally protected, lawful ideology. ( Even though its aims and ideology have been injected into public policy by anti- and extra-constitutional means, most notably by "New Deal" executive fiat under the Depression-era pretext of "national emergency" on the economic side, and by judicial fiat under the Counter-culture-era pretext of "socio-sexual liberation" on the socio-cultural side.
Lawrence v. Texas (excerpted)
The Supreme Court voted 6-3 to strike down the Texas law, with five of the justices holding that it violated due process guarantees, and a sixth justice, Sandra Day O'Connor, finding that it violated equal protection guarantees. The majority opinion, which overrules Bowers v. Hardwick, covers similar laws in 12 other states. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion; Justices John Paul Stevens, David Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer joined. Kennedy spent most of his opinion casting doubt on the factual findings of the court in Bowers, that homosexual sodomy is a widely and historically condemned practice. For example, Kennedy cited a 1981 European Court of Human Rights case Dudgeon v. United Kingdom, as part of its argument against the Bowers court's finding that Western civilization condemned homosexuality. Chief Justice Burger, concurring in Bowers, had held that "Decisions of individuals relating to homosexual conduct have been subject to state intervention throughout the history of Western civilization"; Kennedy's citation of European law was in part a response to this blanket citation of the values of "Western civilization."
In re: Dudgeon v. United Kingdom The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg was established under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) of 1950 to monitor compliance by Signatory Parties. Citing anti-Jehovah globalist law originating in Darwinist/ humanist/materialist Europe in 1950 hardly samples the multi-millenial history of Judeo-Christian Western Civilization. Justice Kennedy's opinion in Lawrence v. Texas exemplifies the folly decried by the Son of God in this commentary on the human condition:
23Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
Sen. Barack Obama has said that his professed personal Saviour, Jesus Christ, endorsed gay marriage in the Sermon on the Mount:
I will tell you that I don't believe in gay marriage, but I do think that people who are gay and lesbian should be treated with dignity and respect and that the state should not discriminate against them. So, I believe in civil unions that allow a same-sex couple to visit each other in a hospital or transfer property to each other. I don't think it should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state. If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans. That's my view. But we can have a respectful disagreement on that.
From "The Sermon on the Mount":
17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
...and continuing regarding marriage:
27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
...and elaborating on His view of what constitutes marriage as defined under Jewish Law in the Torah:
1And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;
2And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
3The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
4And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
If Barack Obama will thus sodomize and sacrifice his professed Redeemer, Jesus Christ, to attain office and power, what will Sen. Obama not violate in pursuit of his ambitions, or, more accurately, those of his handlers?
("Sodomize", as it is employed in this context, refers to the compulsion that the people of Sodom had in Genesis 19 to force themselves and their perverted, anti-moral sexual licentiousness upon others. That is precisely what the New World Order is doing in the name of the "LGBT Community" through a super-massive popular culture propaganda blitzkrieg in the entertainment media, coupled with policy-mandated cultural changes in the form of judicial rulings that amount to corporate memoranda from the oligarchical board of the supranational globalist directorate. The Constitutional provision for advancing the interests of the "LGBT Community" is to persuade We,the American People, of the rightness of your cause, and for us to elect representatives and senators who can persuade our respective legislative bodies to change the law.
Here's the fundamental civic problem with homosexuality and its endorsement in public policy: it is rebellion against the immutable physiological REALITY of gender: male or female. Homosexuals are fundamentally at odds with who and what they themselves are. They transgress and trespass into the roles and domain of the gender that they are not. Homosexuality is destructive in its very essence. It is a toxic, psycho-social pathology, and was regarded as such by the mental health professions prior to the socio-sexual revolution of the counter-culture. Gender, like ethnicity, is NOT elective. Consider pop-titan Michael Jackson. The "LGBT Community" is engaged in varying degrees of the same self-distorting and -mutilating behavior that Michael Jackson is, except that it is oriented around gender, rather than ethnicity. Healthy individuals are on positive terms with their ethnicity and gender. How can a sane society submit to the demand that it accept a "community" of individuals that reject themselves? As it has been said, "diversity" is a deliberately misleading misnomer for perversity. They even sodomize the rainbow. What is even more vile is that people who hold the view that homosexuals are not well or healthy are labeled "homophobic", as though they are afflicted with some type of moral or social deficiency. This is an unconscionable outrage. It is a symptom of a very diseased society. What was once known as speaking the truth is now criminalized as "hate speech". Just so my readers are clear, this criticism is not directed at the "LGBT Community", it is aimed at the New World Order. It is analogous to the observation that Hitler used homosexuals in the leadership of his S.A. Brownshirt Storm Troopers (The more or less open homosexuality of Röhm and other SA leaders (such as Edmund Heines)  along with the stormtroopers' penchant for heavy drinking and street violence added to the SA's notorious reputation in Germany. The SA was a political army, protecting the party leadership and terrorizing (primarily communist) opponents such as the Red Front. The SA's street-wise use of intimidation contributed to the rise of the Nazis, first in Munich and later throughout Germany.) as a means to his socio-political ends, and then had them murdered in "The night of the long knives" when they became a political liability once he attained power. For that matter, the serpent used our first parents, Adam and Eve, as a means to an end, and when the cosmos was under his power, he informed them that they were naked, and had no recourse to God. (To the "LGBT Community": you most definitely do!) In all likelihood, when the New World Order clamps down on the population, "risky" behaviors like sodomy and marriage will be prohibited, and there will be bedroom surveillance to enforce the prohibition. Then, who'll be the sodomees? (See Tom Hanks' "Christmas" movie "The Polar Express". Sleeping children are being surveilled on video monitors by Santa's elves, and not a single reference to the birth of Christ. Or his "Naborski" in "The Terminal" addressing Homeland Security bureau-tyrant "Dixon" by speaking into the surveillance camera: "I wait." [On the E! Channel's "101 Most Memorable SNL Moments", the number one segment of all was a "Wayne's World" skit featuring Aerosmith and Tom Hanks as a roadie. Hmmh.] Or his "Castaway" burying a corpse from the Federal Express air crash and pronouncing an authoritative "That's it." over his grave as his "last rites". On "Inside the Actors' Studio", Hanks joked of sacrificing several small children to "Pelicula", the goddess of movies and movie-making. Oddly, I recently viewed the Beatles' movie "Help!" for the first time, only to discover that human sacrifice was its central theme. They should have addressed Jesus Christ when they called for "help". As Nick Nolte's character in "Mother Night" said to explain his not escaping Israeli justice as a war criminal for his American-effort espionage-related cover work as a Nazi radio propagandist,"You are what you pretend to be.")
The New World Order has convinced the public that, as McCain implies, below, the American People must elect Presidents who will appoint judges that see things the way they do. That the role of the judiciary has replaced the role of the legislature in law and policy-making. Without so much as a Constitutional amendment. That is proof that we are ruled by a deceitful, unconstitutional government and we are systematically dis- and mis-informed by a complicit media and public indoctrination (education) system.
Remarks By John McCain on Judicial Philosophy (Excerpted)
There is one great exception in our day, however, and that is the common and systematic abuse of our federal courts by the people we entrust with judicial power. For decades now, some federal judges have taken it upon themselves to pronounce and rule on matters that were never intended to be heard in courts or decided by judges. With a presumption that would have amazed the framers of our Constitution, and legal reasoning that would have mystified them, federal judges today issue rulings and opinions on policy questions that should be decided democratically. ( McCain is lying. "...policy questions that should be decided legislatively". The U.S. Constitution is a framework for a representative republic under the rule of law, not for a "democracy", which is essentially institutionalized mob rule dominated by the most effective and crafty rabble rousers, not the rule of law. The various legislatures' primary Constitutional function is to formulate laws.) Assured of lifetime tenures, these judges show little regard for the authority of the president, the Congress, and the states. They display even less interest in the will of the people. And the only remedy available to any of us is to find, nominate, and confirm better judges. ( McCain is lying. Impeachment and removal from office is another available remedy. One of the most effective New World Order subversions of the U.S. Constitution is to promulgate the myth that the Federal Judiciary and their rulings are above the reach of the powers of the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. Senator McCain is deliberately perpetuating that myth as a complicit NWO enemy of the Constitution. To express it another way, Senator McCain is saying that an activist judiciary has set the Constitution on fire, it is burning out of control, and the only remedy is to find and appoint judges that are not pyromaniacs ! To fiddle while America burns to the ground. Judicial rulings are the primary New World Order tool for remaking American culture and society into a compliant, hedonistic and amoral mob readily manipulated to support, or at least lack the moral conviction and courage to oppose, it's totalitarian policies. )
Judge says UC can deny religious course credit
Rejecting claims of religious discrimination and stifling of free expression, U.S. District Judge James Otero of Los Angeles said UC's review committees cited legitimate reasons for rejecting the texts - not because they contained religious viewpoints, but because they omitted important topics in science and history and failed to teach critical thinking.
( I haven't reviewed the textbooks in question, which may well support the UC review committees' assessment, but I can guarantee that textbooks that propose evolution as a serious, scientific hypothesis for the origin of species in this cosmos definitely meet their "failure to teach critical thinking" criteria for denying course credit. Its a case of the whitewashed lump of coal calling the snowflake black. There really is nothing new under the sun. The New Whirled Order is the same old world order. One reason the NWO government/media/"education" Establishment has arrayed itself against the Gospel of Jesus Christ is because it teaches critical thinking and questioning authority, as evidenced by what you are reading right now. Matthew 10:16-22; 1 John 4:1-3 ; Acts 17:1-14. This is quite untrue of Islam, which is why they call Koran-sanctioned Islamic violence by the generic terms "sectarian extremism" despite the fact that Islam has been spread by the coersion of the sword since day one. Fundamental believers in the Gospel of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ are radical and extreme by secular/humanist definition, and Illuminati such as Rosie O'Donnell deliberately attempt to lump us together with violent extremism in the public mind, despite the fact that the Gospel explicitly prohibits the employment of violence, even in self defense. In the New Testament view, it is the State that is to bear the sword and employ it against evil, hence this First Amendment petition to the government for redress of grievances.)
The Constitution, Article II, Section 4:
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
The Constitution, Article I, Section 3:
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachments shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust, or Profit under the United States, but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment, and Punishment, according to Law.
Article III. - The Judicial Branch
Section 3 - Treason
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.
Let's do a brief recap of recent events in American history.
The 2000 Presidential Election. Focus on the current events/Al Gore material. The Biblical stuff is not directly relevant.
The 9/11/01 terrorism event. Versus Roe v. Wade. Another evaluation of the Roe v. Wade decision and its NWO/Constitutional implications.
(Under the Constitution, the American People were shielded from excessive, unwarranted scrutiny by the government, and the government was required to operate in full view of the public. Under the New World Order, the respective status of the People and the government are being systematically reversed. I challenge the news media to demand that government officials account for this trend and when and where it will end.)
The folly of "Iraqi Freedom".
In 1998, Saddam Hussein, in defiance of a Lewinsky-debilitated U.S. President Clinton, kicked U.N. weapons inspectors out of Iraq. That, and Iraqi aggression against coalition forces enforcing post-Desert Storm no-fly zones, combined with humanitarian problems associated with U.N. sanctions (which precipitated the "Oil-for-Food" scams), pushes U.S. Iraq Policy toward "regime change", as admitted by President Clinton and members of his administration. After 9-11-01, a still-defiant Saddam Hussein is publicly rewarding the families of suicide bombers in Israel $25,000.00, a life-changing fortune in that region. Despite this, and the Iraqi regime's evasions and obstructions of U.N. weapons inspectors, the U.N. Security Council, thanks to France, Germany and Russia, is incapable of presenting a unified front to Saddam Hussein to step down or face forcible removal from power. While Hans Blix dithers around in Iraq, massed Coalition military assets are left to degrade in the Arabian Desert.
Let's stop the narrative right here. At this juncture, a competent U.S. Government, led by the Executive, should have withdrawn from the United Nations and the Iraqi border,because, guess what, it's now the Divided Nations, and as such, is worse than absolutely worthless in resolving international problems. All it's now good for is unnecessarily complicating international problems. (I supported the Iraq War on the basis that removing Saddam Hussein was a good step, but with the expectation that a liberated Iraqi population would take full advantage of its newfound liberty and quickly stabilize and recover. I didn't understand the inherent disabilities in Iraqi/ Islamic/ post- Ba'athist culture. I viewed the people of Iraq with American Judeo-Christian assumptions and naivete.)
Back to the narrative. Thanks to the Divided Nations, Saddam Hussein was emboldened to hold out and subject his country to military invasion, and the U.S.-led operation has been perceived and portrayed as war-mongering aggression. Had the U.N. Security Council been unified, Saddam Hussein would more likely have taken a golden parachute out of power, and Iraq would have been spared the death and destruction of "Iraqi Freedom". Apparently, the "Oil for Food" program created some conflicts of interest in Security Council member states. So the U.N. Security Council hosed the Iraqi People coming (by post- "Desert Storm" sanctions) and going (by pre- "Iraqi Freedom" corruption and conflicts of interest.)
( Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama advocate U.N. Security Council action in South Ossetia. As the saying goes: insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting a different result...and "Purpose Driven" Rick Warren is going to host a venue in which Sens. Obama and McCain will have their religious views examined... In a related vein, I heard (in a channel-surfing "happenstance") noted Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa make the ridiculous assertion that it was Israeli metallurgical underdevelopment rather than Philistine weapons control policy that resulted in the asymmetrical disparity in military readiness cited here. Apparently, Pastor Smith cannot read.)
( I would like to insert here an anecdote from the runup to "Operation Iraqi Freedom" that really pissed me off. Tony Snow was anchoring on Fox News and reported that a group of Iraqi soldiers had attempted to surrender to members of the British military before the shooting started. Mr. Snow was all a-chuckle as he reported that the British troops refused to accept their surrender and sent the hapless fellows back the way they came... amid all this talk of plastic shredders and torture under the terrible Iraqi Regime, and how we were there to "liberate" the poor Iraqi people. They didn't offer them political asylum. No. They sent them back to the dictator's regime as deserters. Posthumously very funny, Mr. Snow.)
After the Ba'ath Party Dictatorship was deposed, the U.S.-led occupation forces were left with a humanitarian, ethnic and sectarian "Gordian Knot" on their hands. All down the line, policy makers fail to confront the problem that political pluralism and religious diversity are antithetical to the Koranic/ Islamic model of governance, yet Coalition personnel have been deployed to babysit Iraq until that precise irreconcilable difference has been resolved. Anybody want to formulate a timetable for that eventuality? The so-called "surge" has not achieved even partial resolution of that problem. It has merely temporarily repressed overt violence. It is an environment where some level of state repression is absolutely indispensible to maintaining civic order. (Islam is the elephant in the room. "Terrorism" is merely his natural excretions. Subjugation and domination of the non-Islamic world are standing Islamic imperatives. I learned that in history class in the '60's and '70's. Didn't American foreign policy-makers go to school? )
Meanwhile, U.S. military units, (including National Guard units from around the country) are getting live-fire/ kill-you-dead or maim-you-for-life battlefield experience in, guess what!, counter-insurgency and anti-militia warfare. Guess what else! Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root has been awarded contingency contracts to build massive new detention centers! Where? Iraq? NO! Right here in the good ol' USA! The notion that they are intended to help law enforcement deal with "immigrants" is laughable in light of recent and current law enforcement policies towards unlawful immigrants, which is, and has been, largely "hands off". ( I suspect that I'm the kind of alien they are referring to: one who is incapable of assimilation "Through the New Whirled Order Looking-glass".) So we're left with "natural disaster" or "national emergency". Natural disasters are, by definition, beyond human control, so human mischief is limited to the aftermath, and would presumably be confined to the geographic vicinity of the event, as in Hurricane Katrina, so there's not much in that contingency to be concerned about in a general sense.
Which leaves us to contemplate "national emergency" and what that phrase might be affixed to in order to make the construction and use of large detention facilities a necessary component of government policy. Couple that with the counter-insurgency and anti-militia experience that our armed forces are now receiving in the Iraq theater and the picture darkens very ominously, indeed. It is helpful, I think, to remember that the absolute power that Chancellor Adolph Hitler exercised as "der Fuehrer" of the Third Reich was ceded to his office in response to the "national emergency" precipitated by the supposed German Communist burning of the Reichstag, the building in which the Weimar Republic's equivalent of Congress met for parliamentary proceedings. It is also helpful, in assessing the U.S. Government's track record in dealing with "national emergencies", to remember that what is now the massive federal regulatory bureaucracy comprised of such efficient and essential government departments as the FDA, the USDA, the FCC, the FAA, the IRS, BATF, the FBI, CIA, the supra-governmental Federal Reserve Banking system, ad infinitum, .....( the shortcomings of CIA and the FBI in preventing 9/11/01 pointed up the need for yet another federal department: Homeland Security! A pre-New World Order president would probably have called the new department by non-globalist terms such as "Department of Interior Security" rather than the anti-nationalist/anti-patriotic/pro-globalist term "homeland". Are we really gonna let these miserable Tom Sawyers pull the United States of America out from under us?)..... ad nauseum, were all created from emergency "New Deal" powers ceded to the Executive Branch under FDR by Congress in response to the banking crisis of 1933 which was precipitated by the malfeasance of the Federal Reserve Bank in the preceding twenty years since its creation in 1913 on the pretext that it would provide liquidity in the fluctuating, seasonal U.S. economy. It failed to perform as advertised, so our Congress elevated it and accorded it absolute power over the currency and financial system. Our currency has ever since been based solely on the credit of the American taxpaying public.
The authority of the Federal Reserve Banks to issue notes comes from the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Legally, they are liabilities of the Federal Reserve Banks and obligations of the United States government. Although not issued by the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve Notes carry the (engraved) signature of the Treasurer of the United States and the United States Secretary of the Treasury.
Federal Reserve Notes are fiat currency, which means that the government is not obligated to give the holder of a note gold, silver, or any specific tangible commodity in exchange for the note. Before 1964, some notes were "backed" by silver and before 1933, by gold: that is, the law provided that holders of Federal Reserve notes could exchange them on demand for a fixed amount of metal (although from 1934–1971, only foreign holders of the notes could exchange the notes for gold on demand). Since 1964 (see Silver Certificate), Federal Reserve Notes have not been backed by any single specific asset, but are backed by all assets held in collateral by the Federal Reserve, and by the power of the government to collect assets in taxes. While 12 U.S.C. § 411 states that "Federal Reserve Notes . . . shall be redeemed in lawful money on demand" this now means only that Federal Reserve banks will exchange the notes on demand for new Federal Reserve notes, since these are now the only lawful money. Thus today the notes are backed only by the "full faith and credit of the U.S. government"—the government's ability to levy taxes to pay its debts. In another sense, because the notes are legal tender, they are "backed" by all the goods and services in the U.S. economy; they have value because the public may exchange them for valued goods and services in the U.S. economy.
(Note the observation from a scene in the movie "Shallow Hal" here.)
(Talk about pseudo-Constitutional identity theft!) Federal Reserve Notes... IOU's... corporate scrip...
The well-known chorus runs:
You load sixteen tons, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go;
I owe my soul to the company store...
The line from the chorus "another day older and deeper in debt" was a phrase often used by Travis's father, a coalminer himself.
This and the line "I owe my soul to the company store" is a reference to the truck system and to debt bondage. Under this system workers were not paid cash; rather they were paid with unexchangeable credit vouchers for goods at the company store (usually referred to as scrip). This made it impossible for workers to store up cash savings. Workers also usually lived in company-owned dormitories or apartment buildings, the rent for which was automatically deducted from their pay.
Since 1935, both sides of the Great Seal appear on the reverse of the one-dollar bill.
A "national emergency" measure that has persisted for 75 years. A "national emergency" whose existence is systematically concealed from "We, the People", but slyly referenced in movies like "Shallow Hal" and "The Terminal". 75 years of "emergency rule" and its obscuring by the suppliers of information are prima facie evidence of malice and bad faith. Do you feel insulted? You should be a bit more offended than that:
U.S. Constitution - Article 1 Section 8
Article 1 - The Legislative Branch
Section 8 - Powers of Congress
To borrow money on the credit of the United States;
To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;
Did you even know that our currency was unconstitutional, and that it was issued as a national emergency measure? No? Why not? Didn't you learn history in the Public School Syst...........oh.
Or watching "The History Channel"?
Do you expect the government/media complex to even begin to address the current national emergency? They have swept that one under the rug, apparently because enslaving the American People under insurmountable debt is an eventuality that doesn't concern them, and We, the American People don't really need to know the true nature of the regime that rules us. (As Natalie Portman's character said in "Revenge of the Sith.": "...so that's how liberty dies... with thunderous applause..." The latest installments in the "Star Wars" series reveal a surprising intimacy with the tactics of exploiting crises in the transfer of power and wealth from the governed to those who operate the government.)
Oath of Office
Vice President Richard Nixon administers the oath of office to Senator Gale McGee, 1959.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
So who are these people working for? I think the time has come that we fired the whole lot, and hauled them off in chains to await trial and sentence for treason. ( Don't get too excited about that, maternal-basement-dwelling leftists. Your ideology will then be treated as the criminal, seditious and treasonous activity that it is, and you'll either have to find work or some private sector suckers to support you. Those of you who opt to remain on the public teat can find subsistence level accommodations at the KBR detention facilities. That should inspire you to find some way to actually contribute to our civilization in a productive and gainful way.)
Thomas Jefferson once said:
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] . . . will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson -- The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill, (1809)
The New World Order is the National Emergency and the nearest and clearest present existential danger to the United States of America. This is the true State of the Union and national intelligence estimate. Thomas Jefferson wrote some other very true words on behalf of the American People:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
The United States military code word for calling in all available aircraft for an airstrike was "Broken Arrow", and was used during the movie We Were Soldiers, depicting the battle at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley during the Vietnam War.)
(More precisely, it was used when an American position was about to be completely overrun by the Enemy.)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
"Operation Broken Arrow" constitutes an emergency petition of the government for a redress of the grievances referenced herein pursuant to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
"Operation Broken Arrow" is an emergency petition for the retasking of all of the United States Armed Forces and of all other Oath-bound public officials and office holders, to the mission of the immediate and forcible restoration of the United States Constitution to its original organic function in the governance of the United States of America.
The role of Private Citizens in "Operation Broken Arrow" is to comply with current law and government rule, to keep to their normal routines, and otherwise stay out of harm's way. Private Citizen supporters of "Operation Broken Arrow" are encouraged to circulate the petition, organize peacable assemblies, and otherwise pursue their First Amendment and Declaration of Independence rights and duties as set forth in this petition and in accordance with law and good civic order. Incitement to commit, and commission of violent acts and destruction of property as was experienced in the April, 1992, Los Angeles, Ca. "Rodney King Verdict Riots", disruptive behaviors like those at "Critical Mass" bicycle demonstrations and other such civil disturbances at "Operation Broken Arrow" peacable assemblies shall be deemed treasonous subversion, and the perpetrators' identities recorded, if possible, for subsequent, lawful prosecution. The first incident of such disruption at an "Operation Broken Arrow" peacable assembly shall be construed as an immediate imperative command for the peacable assembly to disperse . (It means it's time for everybody to quietly leave. Those who do not immediately disperse are enemies of "Operation Broken Arrow". "Operation Broken Arrow" is an expression of American Constitutional Civilization, not neo-pagan tantrum-throwing.)
If there must be martial law, let it be to maintain order while office-holding traitors that solemnly swore with "mental reservation and purpose of evasion", to support and defend the United States Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, are apprehended, charged with treason, tried, and, upon conviction, sentenced and executed. Let it be noted that the jurisprudential function of the death "penalty" in Mosaic Law is remedial, not vengeful or punitive. It is the duty of human government. One that "humanistic" government invariably shirks, to the detriment of the culture, welfare and security of the people. If you hold public office, there is only one lawful response to "Operation Broken Arrow": an affirmative utterance of the code phrase "Broken Arrow" and immediate compliance and cooperation with its implementation. The merits of the petition are self-evident.
All other responses to this petition shall be construed as hostile to the U.S Constitution, the American People and the rule of law.
Nonviolent opposition shall be afforded due process of law under the terms and limits of U.S. Constitutional Law.
Standard rules of engagement shall apply to violent opposition. The amount of violence required to achieve the objectives of "Operation Broken Arrow" shall be directly proportional to the willingness of the domestic enemies of the U.S Constitution and of the American People and of the rule of law, to fight and die.
Let Halliburton subsidiary KBR build the detention centers it has contracted to for the purpose of processing enemies of "Operation Broken Arrow".
Let the National Debt be paid with the agricultural, industrial, technological and commodities output of the United States of America on a sustainable portion of the whole.
Let the de-globalized Congress issue Constitutional currency and regulate the value thereof based on a fixed amount of work during a fixed period of time as a unit of value. ( For example, a dollar will equal five minutes of typing at fifty-five words per minute, with the values of goods and services scaled accordingly, and with pricing dictated by free market forces and dynamics. Money is not wealth. Present U.S. currency is actually a transfer and reassignment of debt. Wealth is the product of organized human effort over time. When you exchange your organized efforts over time producing wealth for a paycheck, you are exchanging your wealth for debt. When you buy gas and groceries, you are exchanging your stockpile of debt for your necessary goods. The currency shall be stabilized and assigned value as a fixed unit of organized human effort over time. This will stabilize the currency and the economy without citizens being tempted to stockpile commodities such as gold because of fears of a collapse of the currency.)
Let there be "no representation without taxation". Adopting that voting policy, along with the abolition of the NWO economic warfare of graduated "income tax" in favor of the equitable distribution of the tax burden by the frugality- and conservation-incentivizing policy of taxing individuals and corporations at a single, across-the-board-of-economic-classes, rate on their consumption of goods and services. That way, everybody who votes, from the corporate CEO to the derelict buying alcohol and cigarettes, will have an incentive to keep taxes as low, and the government as fiscally efficient, as possible.There are only bad reasons for opposing such a unifying tax policy, and they invariably originate with those who benefit from the current financial policy at the unjust expense and disenfranchisement of those who are oppressed under it.
Let private economic activity proceed uninterrupted as far as is practical.
Let the flow of funds in commercial exchange in private economic activity continue to be facilitated by existing electronic systems and accounting methods. Deliberate disruption and destruction of existing systems and information shall be deemed treason and punishable by death upon conviction in a court of law.
Let an emergency temporary homestead status preserve housing for the population at their existing residences as necessary during the transition from the New World Order to the new Constitutional government. Attempted violations of this temporary transitional status shall be deemed felonies. Willful, malicious nonpayment of rents and mortgages under temporary homestead status shall equate to looting and shall be subject to appropriate sanctions.
Let the assets of those who oppose "Operation Broken Arrow" be forfeit by authority of Congressional seizure and deposited in the reconstituted United States Treasury for the benefit of, and to meet the obligations of, the American People.
If We, the People, of the United States of America will be free, then we must be brave.
The Star-Spangled Banner
O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust!”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
1The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
2For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
3A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
4They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
5Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
6Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
7Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
8He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
10Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.
11The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.
My name is Thad Michael Jones and I mean every God-blessed word in this message.
God save the United States of America. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
The LORD rebuke you, Satan.
C.H. Spurgeon's Evening Devotional
Tuesday August 19, 2008
"Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for Thou art my strength."-Psalm 31:4
Our spiritual foes are of the serpent's brood, and seek to ensnare us by subtlety. The prayer before us supposes the possibility of the believer being caught like a bird. So deftly does the fowler do his work, that simple ones are soon surrounded by the net. The text asks that even out of Satan's meshes the captive one may be delivered; this is a proper petition, and one which can be granted: from between the jaws of the lion, and out of the belly of hell, can eternal love rescue the saint. It may need a sharp pull to save a soul from the net of temptations, and a mighty pull to extricate a man from the snares of malicious cunning, but the Lord is equal to every emergency, and the most skilfully placed nets of the hunter shall never be able to hold His chosen ones. Woe unto those who are so clever at net laying; they who tempt others shall be destroyed themselves.
"For Thou art my strength." What an inexpressible sweetness is to be found in these few words! How joyfully may we encounter toils, and how cheerfully may we endure sufferings, when we can lay hold upon celestial strength. Divine power will rend asunder all the toils of our enemies, confound their politics, and frustrate their knavish tricks; he is a happy man who has such matchless might engaged upon his side. Our own strength would be of little service when embarrassed in the nets of base cunning, but the Lord's strength is ever available; we have but to invoke it, and we shall find it near at hand. If by faith we are depending alone upon the strength of the mighty God of Israel, we may use our holy reliance as a plea in supplication.
"Lord, evermore Thy face we seek:
Tempted we are, and poor, and weak;
Keep us with lowly hearts, and meek.
Let us not fall. Let us not fall."
