2014, the Eve of Destruction: Economic Collapse, Wolf of Wall Street, or Rebirth of the American Dream?
By Paul McGuire
January 6, 2014

2014 is the single most important year in America’s history because if we make the wrong decisions it can lead to a 1930s style economic crisis and authoritarianism from the right or left to manage the chaos. The right decisions will move us toward a Great Awakening and the rebirth of the American Dream. Beliefs have consequences and America’s rapid decline is not the result of the actions of one particular political party or leader, but rather a widespread belief in statism…the virtual worship of government. America, and along with it the entire world, is in a death spiral that results from a faulty worldview which has infected the elite and entire masses of people with an ideological virus that produces a collective brain death. That faulty worldview can be summed up in one phrase: “The State is God,” attributed to Trotsky. But what many people do not understand is that the State is simply a front for a secretive elite.
The mass media in America focuses in on how many times the f-word is used in The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. But that misses the main point of the movie, which brutally depicts the immorality and lawlessness in the Wall Street culture and the danger that represents to the economic well being of our nation and world. Like the State, Wall Street is simply a front for a hidden economic elite. The middle class in America have not had a real real pay increase since 1965, primarily because the actual value or buying power of the dollar is significantly less than it was in 1965. In the early 1960s, when I was going to P.S. 69 in Queens, New York, I used to walk across the street from the elementary school, which looked like a prison by the way, and go the pizza place and get two slices of pizza and a coke for a quarter. Today, that same purchase could easily cost me $8.00!
In 1965, a person without a college education could make $2.30 an hour in some jobs, which is the equivalent of $17 dollars an hour today. Today, the minimum wage is nine dollars an hour and it is next to impossible to find those high paying non-skilled jobs because they have all been outsourced to places like China, whose economy is booming. Who outsourced all those jobs? President Obama and the Democrats? As I recall, it was “God and country” Republicans and politicians like the “champion of conservatism” Newt Gingrich who championed GATT, NAFTA, the WTO, and other means of outsourcing American jobs all around the world. Who was really behind GATT,NAFTA and the WTO? The same secretive elite…an elite that our Founding Fathers like Jefferson, Washington and Hamilton wrote extensively about.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF), which is also a front for the elite, is announcing ahead of time that the Western world will require defaults, a savings tax, and higher inflation as means to economic recovery because debt levels have reached a 200-year high. Do you really think that these debt levels reached a 200-year high by accident? Do you really think that the international bankers who controlled the central banks of Europe for centuries, and the Federal Reserve, simply forgot to balance their books for two centuries?
The six major corporations which control the entire global media don’t want us to know about God’s prophetic Word regarding the future, which foretells a coming one world economic system, one world government, and one world religion in the last days. The Book of Revelation predicted a global economic system along with the “Mark of the Beast,” which uncannily resembles a cashless society requiring a microchip implant placed inside every human being who chooses to accept it. If we simply compare this Biblical prediction with current economic and technological data, we see that the global economic system is on the verge of flipping from the U.S. dollar as the de facto world currency to a new international currency that will eventually be cashless and use some kind of chip. The world’s leading economic publications have been calling loudly for a “New International Economic Order” for about two decades now.
In order to prepare the way for a smooth transition into a “New International Economic Order” people must first be conditioned to perceive it as the only way their lifestyles, pensions, retirement, savings, and healthcare can be preserved. Yet ultimately, the means for the Draconian seizure of pensions, retirement, and savings by governments with too much debt will be this mass global conversion into a one world economic system.
Let’s go back to the beginning of Mankind somewhere in the geographic vicinity of modern Iraq and the Middle East where the Garden of Eden existed. For the moment, let us suspend the argument on whether or not there was a literal Garden of Eden with a literal Adam and Eve and look at it from primarily an economic perspective. In the Biblical text in the Book of Genesis there is an account of an original man and woman, whose names are Adam and Eve, and they enjoyed economic prosperity in an environmental and social Paradise. These original human beings were in some kind of close relationship to what the Bible calls the Personal Living God of the Universe, and this God empowered them to be rulers over Planet Earth. That rulership included the executive management of all of the Earth’s resources such as food, water, weather, and the environment. On a genetic level, they were created physically and spiritually in the image of God and were infused with a life force that was so powerful that death and disease did not exist in them. This had a tangible economic benefit because there were no health care or aging costs.
Adam and Eve were always young, healthy, and productive. In addition, due to the complete social and political freedom they had, reproducing and having children was an economic blessing. The Malthusian idea that society’s problems stem from overpopulation was not a viable concept for them because the idea of scarcity was non-existent. In addition, the living energy that poured through their beings was so intense that they lived in a far higher state of consciousness than contemporary man does and in all probability the reason that they were not “naked” before what was is termed the “Fall” was that their DNA energized the biophotons inside of them and they were clothed with light. They had no need for external energy sources like oil.
Now you may believe that the Genesis account is mythological or allegorical; I happen to believe that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that it is literal, but for the moment this important debate can suspended and picked up at a later time. What is suggested in the Genesis account is the existence of perfect human beings who are rulers of the Planet, living in a constant state of economic and spiritual growth. Adam and Eve were given a primary directive by their Creator and that was to be fruitful and multiply and have dominion over their world. The other primary directive was that they were to obey God’s Word, which was expressed in a single commandment, which was not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which would allow the death force into their world.
It is important to notice that in this original world there was no death, disease, psychological problems, economic shortages, political struggles, shortages of any kind, crime, or war. In addition, God said to them through His Word that they were to be fruitful and multiply. This meant not only biological reproduction, but continual creative, economic, artistic, cultural, and scientific advances. The only thing they could do to jeopardize that incredible prosperity would be to disobey His Word regarding the eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which they did when they were tempted to listen to another voice, which was the voice of Lucifer, who had inhabited the physical form of a Reptilian being. The result of their action was the entrance of the death force into their once perfect world, bringing death, disease, shortages, poverty, political struggles, war, and conflict.
From that point forward the history of the human race is essentially the account of Mankind taking one of two paths as individuals, tribes, and nations. One path is based on obeying and living in the truth of God’s Word and the other path is based on living according to manmade philosophies and belief systems. In both cases ideas have significant consequences. God chose the children of Israel, according to His will and not due to any inherent virtue of theirs, to be a testimony to His law or Word. Historically, God has used the descendants of Abraham as a form of living theatre to show what happens to a nation that obeys the law of God and what happens to a nation that disobeys the law of God. In Deuteronomy Chapter 28, there is an extensive outline of the specific blessings and curses that result from obedience or disobedience to the Word of God. These blessings and curses are very specific and deal with economics, war, immigration, agriculture, weather conditions, health, disease, political freedom, etc. A historical examination of the history of the Jews shows a cycle of thousands of years of blessing, captivity, and death based on their relationship to the law of God. It is a model for other nations to see.
When America was founded by the Pilgrims and Puritans who had escaped religious persecution in Europe, these early settlers decided to enter a similar relationship with the Personal Living God of the Universe. In short, the Pilgrims and Puritans clearly understood that it was God and not government that was the ultimate source of their well-being. It was from that set of ideas that a unique form of American government was birthed which included such radical ideas as “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” in the Declaration of Independence and the idea that a Creator, not government, gave Man these inalienable rights. In addition, the Bill of Rights included “Freedom of Religion,” “Freedom of Speech,” “Freedom of the Press,” etc., and it all came from this idea which originated from a Biblical worldview.
In contrast, the French Revolution, a humanistic revolution inspired by the forces of the Illuminati, ended in chaos, dictatorship, poverty, and mass murder. The French Revolution, as with all humanist revolutions, such as the Communist Revolutions, started with the premise that there is no God and that Man or the State is God.
Many of the governments of Europe were ruled by the elite in the form of both royalty and secret occult societies like the Illuminati which believe that is the State which grants men and women certain freedoms and it is the State which produces an economy. These ideas go back to ancient Babylon where Nimrod and his wife Semiramis had the divine right to rule as kings, because they were “gods.” The entire idea of the divine right of kings to rule over their subjects flowed from the belief that kings and queens were god-men and women and were genetically superior. When the children of Israel rebelled against the Word of God, they were sent into slavery to serve the god-king Pharaoh as economic slaves. They did not get to keep the fruits of their labor, nor were they given freedom. The principle is very clear: whenever the Word of God is rejected, from the Garden of Eden on to the present, slavery is the result.
Before the beginning of America there were two different plans for the nation based on two different ideas. First, there was the secret occult plan for America conceived by Sir Francis Bacon and then followed through by the Illuminati, who worked in partnership with the Central Banks of Europe, which later became the Federal Reserve System in America. The Bible clearly states “that where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.” In 1913-1914 when the international bankers passed the Federal Reserve Act, this allowed the Illuminati banking families like Rothschilds to take over the monetary system and control America.
Christian leaders who should have been filled with the Spirit of the Lord and having their intellectual capacities enhanced by renewing their minds with the Word of God were in a religious stupor and had fallen asleep like the unfaithful Watchman that they were. While they slept America went into captivity through an economic system designed to make people slaves because of the Biblical principle that the “debtor is slave to the lender.” The global monetary system obviously did not exist in Eden, and even charging interest was forbidden in the Bible.
The Jews were forbidden by God to charge interest to other Jews; it was called usury. However, the surrounding pagan nations did allow for the creation of a money system where the charging of interest was allowed. As early as 5000 B.C. the Mesopotamians, Hittites, Phoenicians, and Egyptians charged interest, but it was fixed by the state. Jews were allowed to charge interest to non-Jews in order to sell and trade in their economic system. But the Jews were not allowed to exploit or take advantage of non-Jews in their business dealings, especially the poor. Their business dealings with those outside Israel were expected to be fair and just. Tragically, despite the warnings of the prophets, the Jews began to ignore this aspect of the law and over time many Jews as well as Christians abused the charging of interest to poor people, amassed great fortunes, and made people their slaves or serfs through debt.
Charging of excessive interest in an effort to exploit or enslave people was condemned by the Vedic texts of India and by Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, and in China and many other nations. The modern international banking system is now essentially built on a system of lies and is a means of stealing the assets of innocent people and transferring the wealth of the middle class and others into the hands of powerful international bankers. Many recessions, inflation, interest rate changes, and things like the Great Depression were essentially schemes to transfer massive amounts of wealth, inheritances, and property into the hands of the international bankers.
In the Old Testament God established the economic principle of the Year of Jubilee which occurs after seven sets of seven complete years are finished. This proclamation of a fiftieth "liberty" year occurs on one of God's annual feast days known as the Day of Atonement. Because God owns everything, He set up a special, regularly occurring time period where His will is that a man's possessions are returned to him. The purpose of this was to insure that men and women would be released from their debt and not have to lose their property and become slaves.
The takeover of our monetary system was accompanied by the occult symbol of the Illuminati pyramid on the back of the U.S. dollar, which is a bold declaration that the Pharaoh god-king system has been re-established and that the common man (middle class) was now a slave. This economic system began in ancient Babylon and that is why in Revelation Chapter 17 and 18, we see the return of what is called “Mystery Babylon the Great the Mother of Harlots.” When this global economic system is fully put in place, no person will be able to participate in the economic system or buy or sell, without the Mark of the Beast which will be a microchip implant either on the forehead or the right hand. This is the mark of a slave! There will be no free men or women in the New World Order; all men will become slaves. I explain this in greater detail in my book A Prophecy of the Future of America.
A number of years ago, I interviewed an author named Dave Hunt who suggested that in the days proceeding the return of the Lord, there would be some degree of prosperity. Hunt quoted Matthew 24:37-39:
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matt 24:37-39)
This brings us to our final question. Since all things are possible with God and God is the Source of all things, the ability of God to protect and prosper any people is not contingent on any manmade economic laws or conditions. It is not that we disregard those laws, but they do not limit what is ultimately possible. Going back to Genesis, reading the blessings and curses in Deuteronomy 28, and reviewing the Covenant the Pilgrims and Puritans made with God regarding America, the essential truth to be grasped is that God has the power to bless or curse any nation economically. The key to whether or not that nation experiences the blessings of God or the curse and judgment of God has to do with its obedience or rejection of the principles in the Word of God.
The Pilgrims and Puritans as well as ancient Israel understood that economic collapse and other conditions were signs that they had violated God’s Word. Therefore whenever they specifically repented of that sin and changed their ways, God often poured out a blessing and not a curse. This is the historical record going all the way back to Eden. There are many who say that our time period is different and that we are in the last days, and there is nothing we can do except to watch our nation collapse into economic chaos and authoritarianism because this is what the Bible predicts. In short, this is a theology of fatalism based on partial truth and an incomplete understanding of scripture.
It is true that God has written in His Word a specific end times’ scenario which cannot be changed by any act of human will. For example, people are not going to pray and stop the Antichrist from coming. Nor are they going to fast and stop the Tribulation Period or Armageddon. However, within the context of God’s end time prophetic program revealed in His Word, there are nations, places and times where God has not given us specific information. As such, we can only act on the general principles. For example, the Bible commands us that we are to pray for all those who are in authority above us, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life.
Clearly, God is indicating that effective prayer can release a blessing upon a people and prevent the full domination of evil, even if that prevention is temporal. God commands us to repent, fast and pray for our nation and its leaders in America as He would to believers in any other nation. Our responsibility is to obey God and not to try to be God. God is sovereign and He may choose not to answer our prayers and things may get worse. But we are commanded to “pray always.”
Another factor in repentance and prayer is that the repentance and prayer must be genuine. Repentance means the specific acknowledgement, confession, and turning away from specific sins that can block the power of God from being released upon a nation. I would suggest to you that one of the reasons we have not seen God move powerfully in our nation is because our repentance is false. Beginning with the Garden of Eden, God clearly shows us what the root problem always is. That root problem or sin is the rejection of God’s Word and replacing it with humanistic philosophies and occult beliefs, which are all in effect a counterfeit of the Truth or a counterfeit Gospel.
The reality is that the vast majority of Evangelical Christian pulpits in America, and many average Christians, have rejected the authority of the inspired and inerrant Word of God. Instead they have embraced humanistic philosophies, humanistic psychological motivational theories, and occult beliefs. This is the root sin and this is why we have not seen the power of God released upon our nation. It is only when we deal with the root sin, which is the rejection of and disobedience to God’s Word, and truly repent of this, that God will honor our repentance.
So now we stand on the eve of destruction. There are two paths before us. One is the path towards destruction which will come about by continuing to reject God’s Word. The other is the path to deliverance and freedom which will come from acknowledging the root sin and turning from it. There is no other way.

Life in the Emerging American Police State: What’s in Store for Our Freedoms in 2014?

Government Spying, Militerized Police, Erosion of Property Rights, Common Core, Drones, Criminalizing childish behavior
By John W. Whitehead
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”—George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Vol. 1
In Harold Ramis’ classic 1993 comedy Groundhog Day, TV weatherman Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) is forced to live the same day over and over again until he not only gains some insight into his life but changes his priorities.
Similarly, as I illustrate in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we in the emerging American police state find ourselves reliving the same set of circumstances over and over again—egregious surveillance, strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, government spying, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, etc.—although with far fewer moments of comic hilarity.
What remains to be seen is whether 2014 will bring more of the same or whether “we the people” will wake up from our somnambulant states. Indeed, when it comes to civil liberties and freedom, 2013 was far from a banner year. The following is just a sampling of what we can look forward to repeating if we don’t find some way to push back against the menace of an overreaching, aggressive, invasive, militarized government and restore our freedoms.
Government spying
It’s hard to understand how anyone could be surprised by the news that the National Security Agency
has been systematically collecting information on all telephone calls placed in the United States, and yet the news media have treated it as a complete revelation. Nevertheless, such outlandish government spying been going on domestically since the 1970s, when Senator Frank Church (D-Ida.), who served as the chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence that investigated the NSA’s breaches, warned the public against allowing the government to overstep its authority in the name of national security. Church recognized that such surveillance powers “at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide.” Recent reports indicate that the NSA, in conjunction with the CIA and FBI, has actually gone so far as to intercept laptop computers ordered online in order to install spyware on them.
Militarized police

With almost 13,000 agencies in all 50 states and four U.S. territories participating in a military “recycling” program, community police forces across the country continue to be transformed into outposts of the military, with police agencies acquiring military-grade hardware—tanks, weaponry, and other equipment designed for the battlefield—in droves. Keep in mind that once acquired, this military equipment, which is beyond the budget and scope of most communities, finds itself put to all manner of uses by local law enforcement agencies under the rationale that “if we have it, we might as well use it”—the same rationale, by the way, used with deadly results to justify assigning SWAT teams to carry out routine law enforcement work such as delivering a warrant.
Police shootings of unarmed citizens
Owing in large part to the militarization of local law enforcement agencies, not a week goes by
without more reports of hair-raising incidents by police imbued with a take-no-prisoners attitude and a battlefield approach to the communities in which they serve. Sadly, it is no longer unusual to hear about incidents in which police shoot unarmed individuals first and ask questions later, such as the 16-year-old teenager who skipped school only to be shot by police after they mistook him for a fleeing burglar. Then there was the unarmed black man in Texas “who was pursued and shot in the back of the neck by Austin Police… after failing to properly identify himself and leaving the scene of an unrelated incident.” And who could forget the 19-year-old Seattle woman who was accidentally shot in the leg by police after she refused to show her hands? The lesson to be learned: this is what happens when you take a young man (or woman), raise him on a diet of violence, hype him up on the power of the gun in his holster and the superiority of his uniform, render him woefully ignorant of how to handle a situation without resorting to violence, train him well in military tactics but allow him to be illiterate about the Constitution, and never stress to him that he is to be a peacemaker and a peacekeeper, respectful of and subservient to the taxpayers, who are in fact his masters and employers.
The erosion of private property

If the government can tell you what you can and cannot do within the privacy of your home, whether it relates to what you eat or what you smoke, you no longer have any rights whatsoever within your home. If government officials can fine and arrest you for growing vegetables in your front yard, praying with friends in your living room, installing solar panels on your roof, and raising chickens in your backyard, you’re no longer the owner of your property. If school officials can punish your children for what they do or say while at home or in your care, your children are not your own—they are the property of the state. If government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family, your property is no longer private and secure—it belongs to the government. Likewise, if police can forcefully draw your blood, strip search you, and probe you intimately, your body is no longer your own, either. This is what a world without the Fourth Amendment looks like, where the lines between private and public property have been so blurred that private property is reduced to little more than something the government can use to control, manipulate and harass you to suit its own purposes, and you the homeowner and citizen have been reduced to little more than a tenant or serf in bondage to an inflexible landlord.
Strip searches and the loss of bodily integrity

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was intended to protect the citizenry from being
subjected to “unreasonable searches and seizures” by government agents. While the literal purpose of the amendment is to protect our property and our bodies from unwarranted government intrusion, the moral intention behind it is to protect our human dignity. Unfortunately, court rulings undermining the Fourth Amendment and justifying invasive strip searches have left us powerless against police empowered to forcefully draw our blood, strip search us, and probe us intimately. For example, during a routine traffic stop, Leila Tarantino was allegedly subjected to two roadside strip searches in plain view of passing traffic, while her two children—ages 1 and 4—waited inside her car. During the second strip search, presumably in an effort to ferret out drugs, a female officer “forcibly removed” a tampon from Tarantino. No contraband or anything illegal was found.
Invasion of the drones

As corporations and government agencies alike prepare for their part in the coming drone invasion—it is expected that at least 30,000 drones will occupy U.S. airspace by 2020, ushering in a $30 billion per year industry—it won’t be long before Americans discover first-hand that drones—unmanned aerial vehicles—come in all shapes and sizes, from nano-sized drones as small as a grain of sand that can do everything from conducting surveillance to detonating explosive charges, to middle-sized copter drones that can deliver pizzas to massive “hunter/killer” Predator warships that unleash firepower from on high. Police in California have already begun using Qube drones, which are capable of hovering for 40 minutes at heights of about 400 ft. to conduct surveillance on targets as far as 1 kilometer away. Michael Downing, the LAPD deputy chief for counter-terrorism and special operations, envisions drones being flown over large-scale media events such as the Oscars, using them to surveil political protests, and flying them through buildings to track criminal suspects.
Criminalizing childish behavior

It wouldn’t be a week in America without another slew of children being punished for childish
behavior under the regime of zero tolerance which plagues our nation’s schools. Some of the most egregious: the 9-year-old boy suspended for allegedly pointing a toy at a classmate and saying “bang, bang”; two 6-year-old students in Maryland suspended for using their fingers as imaginary guns in a schoolyard game of cops and robbers; the ten-year-old Pennsylvania boy suspended for shooting an imaginary “arrow” at a fellow classmate, using nothing more than his hands and his imagination; the six-year-old Colorado boy suspended and accused of sexual harassment for kissing the hand of a girl in his class whom he had a crush on; and the two seventh graders in Virginia suspended for the rest of the school year for playing with airsoft guns in their own yard before school.
Common Core

There are several methods for controlling a population. You can intimidate the citizenry into obedience through force, relying on military strength and weaponry such as SWAT team raids, militarized police, and a vast array of lethal and nonlethal weapons. You can manipulate them into marching in lockstep with your dictates through the use of propaganda and carefully timed fear tactics about threats to their safety, whether through the phantom menace of terrorist attacks or shooting sprees by solitary gunmen. Or you can indoctrinate them into compliance from an early age through the schools, discouraging them from thinking for themselves while rewarding them for regurgitating whatever the government, through its so-called educational standards, dictates they should be taught. When viewed in light of the government’s ongoing attempts to amass power at great cost to Americans—in terms of free speech rights, privacy, due process, etc.—the debate over Common Core State Standards, which would transform and nationalize school curriculum from kindergarten through 12th grade, becomes that much more critical. These standards, which were developed through a partnership between big government and corporations and are being rolled out in 45 states and the District of Columbia, will create a generation of test-takers capable of little else, molded and shaped by the federal government and its corporate allies into what it considers to be ideal citizens.
The corporate takeover of America

The corporate buyout of the American political bureaucracy is taking place at every level of
government, from the White House all the way to the various governors’ mansions, and even local city councils. With Big Business and Big Government having fused into a corporate state, the president and his state counterparts—the governors, have become little more than CEOs of the Corporate State, which day by day is assuming more government control over our lives. The average American has no access to his or her representatives at any but the lowest level of government, and even then it’s questionable how much really gets through. Never before have average Americans had so little say in the workings of their government and even less access to their so-called representatives. Yet one of the key ingredients in maintaining democratic government is the right of citizens to freely speak their minds to those who represent them. In fact, it is one of the few effective tools we have left to combat government corruption and demand accountability. But now, even that right is being chipped away by laws and court rulings that weaken our ability to speak freely to the politicians who govern us.
James Madison, the father of the Constitution, put it best: “Take alarm,” he warned, “at the first experiment with liberties.” Anyone with even a casual knowledge about current events knows that the first experiment on our freedoms happened long ago. Worse, we have not heeded the warnings of Madison and those like him who understood that if you give the government an inch, they will take a mile. Unfortunately, the government has not only taken a mile, they have taken mile after mile after mile after mile with seemingly no end in sight for their power grabs.
If you’re in the business of making New Year’s resolutions, why not resolve that 2014 will be the year we break the cycle of tyranny and get back on the road to freedom. As I’ve said before, it’s time for a second American revolution.

2014 Will Bring More Social Collapse

Global Research, December 30, 2013
Url of this article:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/2014-will-bring-more-social-collapse/5362991
2014 is upon us. For a person who graduated from Georgia Tech in 1961, a year in which the class ring showed the same date right side up or upside down, the 21st century was a science fiction concept associated with Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film, “2001: A Space Odyssey.” To us George Orwell’s 1984 seemed so far in the future we would never get there. Now it is 30 years in the past.
Did we get there in Orwell’s sense? In terms of surveillance technology, we are far beyond Orwell’s imagination. In terms of the unaccountability of government, we exceptional and indispensable people now live a 1984 existence. In his alternative to the Queen’s Christmas speech, Edward Snowden made the point that a person born in the 21st century will never experience privacy. For new generations the word privacy will refer to something mythical, like a unicorn.
Many Americans might never notice or care. I remember when telephone calls were considered to be private. In the 1940s and 1950s the telephone company could not always provide private lines. There were “party lines” in which two or more customers shared the same telephone line. It was considered extremely rude and inappropriate to listen in on someone’s calls and to monopolize the line with long duration conversations.
The privacy of telephone conversations was also epitomized by telephone booths, which stood on street corners, in a variety of public places, and in “filling stations” where an attendant would pump gasoline into your car’s fuel tank, check the water in the radiator, the oil in the engine, the air in the tires, and clean the windshield. A dollar’s worth would purchase 3 gallons, and $5 would fill the tank.
Even in the 1980s and for part of the 1990s there were lines of telephones on airport waiting room walls, each separated from the other by sound absorbing panels. Whether the panels absorbed the sounds of the conversation or not, they conveyed the idea that calls were private.
The notion that telephone calls are private left Americans’ consciousness prior to the NSA listening in. If memory serves, it was sometime in the 1990s when I entered the men’s room of an airport and observed a row of men speaking on their cell phones in the midst of the tinkling sound of urine hitting water and noises of flushing toilets. The thought hit hard that privacy had lost its value.
I remember when I arrived at Merton College, Oxford, for the first term of 1964. I was advised never to telephone anyone whom I had not met, as it would be an affront to invade the privacy of a person to whom I was unknown. The telephone was reserved for friends and acquaintances, a civility that contrasts with American telemarketing.
The efficiency of the Royal Mail service protected the privacy of the telephone. What one did in those days in England was to write a letter requesting a meeting or an appointment. It was possible to send a letter via the Royal Mail to London in the morning and to receive a reply in the afternoon. Previously it had been possible to send a letter in the morning and to receive a morning reply, and to send another in the afternoon and receive an afternoon reply.
When one flies today, unless one stops up one’s ears with something, one hears one’s seat mate’s conversations prior to takeoff and immediately upon landing. Literally, everyone is talking nonstop. One wonders how the economy functioned at such a high level of incomes and success prior to cell phones. I can remember being able to travel both domestically and internationally on important business without having to telephone anyone. What has happened to America that no one can any longer go anywhere without constant talking?
If you sit at an airport gate awaiting a flight, you might think you are listening to a porn film. The overhead visuals are usually Fox “News” going on about the need for a new war, but the cell phone audio might be young women describing their latest sexual affair.
Americans, or many of them, are such exhibitionists that they do not mind being spied upon or recorded. It gives them importance. According to Wikipedia, Paris Hilton, a multimillionaire heiress, posted her sexual escapades online, and Facebook had to block users from posting nude photos of themselves. Sometime between my time and now people ceased to read 1984. They have no conception that a loss of privacy is a loss of self. They don’t understand that a loss of privacy means that they can be intimidated, blackmailed, framed, and viewed in the buff. Little wonder they submitted to porno-scanners.
The loss of privacy is a serious matter. The privacy of the family used to be paramount. Today it is routinely invaded by neighbors, police, Child Protective Services (sic), school administrators, and just about anyone else.
Consider this: A mother of six and nine year old kids sat in a lawn chair next to her house watching her kids ride scooters in the driveway and cul-de-sac on which they live.
Normally, this would be an idyllic picture. But not in America. A neighbor, who apparently did not see the watching mother, called the police to report that two young children were outside playing without adult supervision. Note that the next door neighbor, a woman, did not bother to go next door to speak with the mother of the children and express her concern that they children were not being monitored while they played.
“We’re here for you,” the cops told the mother, who was carried off in handcuffs and spent the next 18 hours in a cell in prison clothes.
The news report doesn’t say what happened to the children, whether the father appeared and insisted on custody of his offspring or whether the cops turned the kids over to Child Protective Services.
This shows you what Americans are really like. Neither the neighbor nor the police had a lick of sense. The only idea that they had was to punish someone. This is why America has the highest incarceration rate and the highest total number of prison inmates in the entire world. Washington can go on and on about “authoritarian” regimes in Russia and China, but both countries have far lower prison populations than “freedom and democracy” America.
I was unaware that laws now exist requiring the supervision of children at play. Children vary in their need for supervision. In my day supervision was up to the mother’s judgment. Older children were often tasked with supervising the younger. It was one way that children were taught responsibility and developed their own judgment.
When I was five years old, I walked to the neighborhood school by myself. Today my mother would be arrested for child endangerment.
In America punishment falls more heavily on the innocent, the young, and the poor than it does on the banksters who are living on the Federal Reserve’s subsidy known as Quantitative Easing and who have escaped criminal liability for the fraudulent financial instruments that they sold to the world. Single mothers, depressed by the lack of commitment of the fathers of their children, are locked away for using drugs to block out their depression. Their children are seized by a Gestapo institution, Child Protective Services, and end up in foster care where many are abused.
According to numerous press reports, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 year-old children who play cowboys and indians or cops and robbers during recess and raise a pointed finger while saying “bang-bang” are arrested and carried off to jail in handcuffs as threats to their classmates. In my day every male child and the females who were “Tom boys” would have been taken to jail. Playground fights were normal, but no police were ever called. Handcuffing a child would not have been tolerated.
From the earliest age, boys were taught never to hit a girl. In those days there were no reports of police beating up teenage girls and women or body slamming the elderly. To comprehend the degeneration of the American police into psychopaths and sociopaths, go online and observe the video of Lee Oswald in police custody in 1963. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FDDuRSgzFk
Oswald was believed to have assassinated President John F. Kennedy and murdered a Dallas police officer only a few hours previously to the film. Yet he had not been beaten, his nose wasn’t broken, and his lips were not a bloody mess. Now go online and pick from the vast number of police brutality videos from our present time and observe the swollen and bleeding faces of teenage girls accused of sassing overbearing police officers.
In America today people with power are no longer accountable. This means citizens have become subjects, an indication of social collapse.

2014 Judgment Day For America: The Bible As America’s New Pornography
By Paul McGuire
December 30, 2013
NewsWithViews.com
There is a convergence of economic, political, military, biological and environmental factors that are about to profoundly impact America and every other nation in our world. America has been uniquely blessed among the nations and therefore has a far higher level of accountability than other nations. America was formed by Pilgrims and Puritans who escaped religious persecution in Europe and entered into a covenant with God based on the covenant God made with the nation of Israel. The Pilgrims and Puritans fully understood that God was the Source of all of their blessings and that if they offended the Holy God they could expect to see His judgment. Therefore, when they experienced crop failures, bad weather, disease, or other calamities they would search their souls, repent, fast, and pray to God for forgiveness.
At the very beginning of America there were two different spiritual directions the nation could take, which would result in two different futures. First, there was the Biblical vision of America that was set forth by the Pilgrims and Puritans. Second, there was the secret occult plan for America developed by Sir Francis Bacon in the mid-1600s for America to be the head of the New World Order and the “New Atlantis.” As we enter the year 2014 we must clearly understand that as a people we are moving at lightning speed to the full realization of the secret occult plan for America which synchronizes with Bible prophecy.
Sir Francis Bacon was the head of the Rosicrucians, whose occult knowledge and science was passed on from the Tower of Babel and, before that, from the secret science and technology that originated in Atlantis. The scientific elite who rule America and the world through their puppet politicians view themselves as the god-kings of Atlantis, whom Plato referred to as the philosopher-kings in his “New Republic.” These ancient sciences and technologies were revived after the Flood, and when Nimrod built the Tower of Babel, which means the “gate of God,” a star gate, he unleashed the fires of this secret illumination, like the god Prometheus.
This ancient occult knowledge and the one world religious system and one world economic system that accompanies it is known in the Book of Revelation as “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth.” Revelation 17:5

It is important to understand that this ancient knowledge and technology began with the Elohim, or “Sons of God” descending upon Mount Hermon in Phoenicia and mating with human women, who gave birth to the Nephilim, or “Watchers.” In this process highly advanced knowledge, technology, and science was passed on to Mankind before the Flood, which enabled advanced civilizations like Atlantis, Thule, and Hyberborea to emerge. Then, after the Flood, beginning at the Tower of Babel, which was the post-Flood world’s first one world government, one world economic system and one world religion, “Mystery Babylon” was passed on through numerous secret occult societies and governments such as the Pharaoh god-king religion of Egypt, the ascended masters of Tibet, Rosicrucians, Illuminati, Vril and Thule societies, Golden Dawn, OTO, Bilderberg, Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, and countless other groups.

Mankind is now going into a period where all forms of crisis are about to escalate and where quite possibly we have reached the point of no return, leading to the end of the world, at least the world as we know it. This “end of the world” scenario can potentially bring about three entirely different outcomes. Some of these outcomes are based on the Illuminati operating principle, “Order out of Chaos,” or the “New World Order out of Chaos.” First, the present chaos is a sign for some that we have entered what Aliester Crowley called the “New Aeon” or a new era for Mankind. Groups like the Illuminati anticipate a time of great planetary upheaval resulting in the killing off of billions of “useless eaters” before a New World Order is established.
This is very difficult for the average man to understand, as well as those in the managerial class of this New World Order who have only limited, compartmentalized information. However, it is simply Darwinian evolutionary theory at its purest form, which is the survival of the fittest, or might makes right. There are many scientists, thinkers, and politicians who fully understand this, but they simply are not saying it out in the open. Hitler’s Third Reich was built on the science of eugenics and the right of a “master race” to exterminate what they perceived to be lesser races. The science of eugenics has become Transhumanism.
The Bible does not promote a “master race” perspective, because all races were created by God for a purpose. The Biblical God is a God of love, as opposed to the brutally savage dog eat dog “god” of Social Darwinism. Those who believe in Eschatology or Bible prophecy believe that we are seeing the initial “Signs of the Times” that Jesus Christ predicted would occur before His return to Earth at the Battle of Armageddon, where a New Heaven and New Earth will be established. The Bible teaches that in the last days there will be a Tribulation Period, also known as the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble.” End of the world scenarios either from a Biblical perspective or an ecological perspective can cause enormous psychological stress and anxiety because both reveal Man’s limited control over his world and environment. No matter what your viewpoint is, if you are not prepared for it, the “birth pangs” of the new world that is to come can cause a form of ”Pre-Traumatic Stress Disorder” and great fear and anxiety. Many people, deceived by the Illuminati, believe that a World State ruled by an elite could solve many of these problems. In contrast, the early Pilgrims and Puritans who settled in America believed that it was God who was their ultimate “source.” Many Christians today may not admit it openly, but they believe as the Communist Revolutionary Trotsky did that “The State is God.” That belief is idolatry and will lead to the worship of a man, the Antichrist, as “god.”
All of this has very practical applications for our nation and world. There are people in very high places who are in the process of bringing down the U.S. dollar and preparing to replace it with a new international currency of some form. When this happens Americans and others will be allowed to trade in their dollars and other currencies for the new global currency.
Naturally they will receive a fraction of the value of their dollars in the trade. However, an international crisis will happen at some point before you are asked to trade in your dollars, and the average American will be thrilled with the opportunity not to lose everything. The second phase of setting up this one world economic system will be to convert this new international currency into a cashless system. Some kind of “Mark of the Beast” technology will be distributed in the form of a microchip implant. Whatever the technology of the chip, it will contain all your personal, medical, and financial records. You will not be able to buy or sell, participate in the economic system, receive medical care, or gain access to your Social Security, pensions, and retirement funds without having this chip.
At first, the chip may simply be made mandatory supposedly to prevent identity theft, or for national security reasons. But according to the Bible in Revelation Chapter 11 eventually you will not be able to receive this “Mark of the Beast” or have it activated unless you choose to reject Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and pledge to worship the Antichrist as God. Remember, if you look at your U.S. dollar it is filled with occult symbols such as the all-seeing eye of Lucifer and the words “”New World Order” in Latin. The U.S. dollar also has an occult pyramid on the back of it, along with an eagle that secretly represents the bird called the Phoenix.
The Book of Revelation also clearly states that if any person chooses to refuse to accept the Mark of the Beast they will be beheaded. Up until very recently that was a strange term, but now the term “beheaded” is well known because of the actions of radical Islamic extremists. There are many easier ways to put people to death, rather than by beheading, but that is method of choice under the “Beast System.”
Finally, the Book of Revelation issues a very strong warning to all those who would worship the First Beast or Antichrist as God and choose to receive this Mark of the Beast. The penalty for any person choosing to worship the Antichrist as God and receiving the Mark of the Beast is that they will be cast into the Lake of Fire forever along with Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet. Once you accept the Mark of the Beast there is no going back. You are sentenced by God at the Great White Throne of Judgment into a cosmic prison called the Abyss, which is a place of eternal torment, described in the Book of Revelation.
On the other hand, all those who chose to accept God’s free offer of salvation in Jesus Christ will be given a brand new supernatural and glorified body. They will be welcomed into the New Earth, New Heaven, and New Jerusalem, which will be a place of unending adventure, discovery, and ecstasy.
The battle for the soul and heart of America is a microcosm of the great battle of the ages. If you have difficulty processing this information, I can personally empathize with you. No one including this author is asking you to suspend your intellect or reject your questions.
However, as someone who once believed that all of this talk of a New Heaven and a New Earth was a tragic and delusional fantasy, let me offer one simple suggestion. Take ninety percent of religious talk, images, and ideas of contemporary Evangelical Christianity and hit the delete button in your brain and then use the “empty the garbage” app. I found it very helpful to take a great deal, not all, of the religious clichés, culture, and messages of Evangelical Christianity and simply nuke them in the microwave of my consciousness.
Once my mind was cleared of all the non-Biblical cultural baloney, I was able to really see what the Bible was talking about and its message became alive for me. Find a good version of the Bible, preferably the King James Version or the New King James Version, and just start reading books like Genesis, Matthew, Revelation, etc. Just read the Bible like it is!




Read the Bible as it is meant to be read, uncensored, unedited, raw and X-rated! Yes, despite what you have been told the Bible is an “adult and X-rated” book, but that makes a lot Christians uncomfortable. But then again Jesus Christ made the religious leaders of His time uncomfortable and they killed Him. If you really want to know what is soon going to happen to America and the world, read the Bible before they ban it, make it illegal, and censor it. Mark my words, the day is coming soon in America when you will be arrested and even killed for having a Bible, so read it while you can. The actual literal and inspired Word of God or the Bible is the new pornography in America. If you are an adult, you need to read it.

Reflections On 2013: A Year of Growing Tension

By Frosty Wooldridge
December 30, 2013
NewsWithViews.com
How do you sum up 2013 as a year for the United States and her citizens? What criteria do you use? Good, bad and ugly? As Clint Eastwood said, “A man’s got to know his limitations. Well, do ya’ punk?” The same could be said for our country. Do we understand our limitations?
On the multicultural front, two Muslim Boston Marathon bombers blasted their way into the headlines by killing, maiming and amputating dozens of Americans. While those immigrant boys enjoyed endless welfare, education and incredible freedoms not realized in their home countries, they decided to blow up our country with fear, loathing and pressure cooker bombs. [Editor: Wooldridge is repeating the talking points of the main media. The Boston Marathon was a staged psy-ops by the FBI and the two boys were setup.]
On the immigration front, 20 million illegal aliens “itched” to get themselves legalized so they could continue their “Aztlan Reconquista” of the four southwestern states. Spanish co-equals English in America because Congress runs from any sense of responsibility to our immigration laws and the English language that built America. As their numbers grow, illegal migrants march toward their goal with the help of President Barack Obama, himself a non-citizen, the ACLU, and 535 Congressional critters that refuse to enforce our Constitutional laws.
After 11 years replete with $1 trillion wasted, our military men and women remain in the Islamic insane asylum of Afghanistan doing nothing but pouring money and lives down the rat-hole. The military industrial complex works its wonders with Obama and Congress to start a war with Iran. The bankers and moneychangers lick their chops at the thought of endless and meaningless wars overseas. As General Smedley Butler said in his memoirs, “War is a racket for bankers and politicians.”
Psychologists expect anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 young men will commit suicide from their senseless service in the Islamic nuthouse of the Middle East. Endless forms of PTSD cause broken marriages, fatherless families, alcoholic & drug addicted soldiers
and nonstop misfortune for our military veterans.

For a 5th straight year, Barack Obama proves himself an inept, incompetent and totally lackluster president of the United States. Food stamp recipients charged from 36 million at the beginning of his first term to 48.1 million subsisting on food stamps today. He drove the federal deficit from $12 trillion in 2008 to its current $18 trillion in 2013. More blacks suffer unemployment, poverty, incarceration and welfare than under any other president.

While 14 million Americans remained unemployed and 7 million under employed, Obama and Congress imported over 2.0 million legal and illegal immigrants into America in 2013. Obama and Congress failed to create jobs for the 48.1 million Americans living on food stamps, but they increased section 8 housing, “free” school lunches, medical care and ESL courses for illegal foreign children.
Because the U.S. continues as the third largest and fastest growing country because of immigration, we also accelerate global carbon footprint with millions of added car exhausts, chimneys and factories that acidifies our oceans and causes such horrific weather changes that create Hurricane Sandy, Katrina and Typhoon Haiyan. With the expected 100 million additional immigrants in the next 36 years, we can expect Mother Nature to respond commensurately.
On the sociological front, we saw Hispanic George Zimmerman kill one young thug named Trayvon Martin that created national headlines while 1,400 black Americans killed another 1,400 black Americans—but no one at the national level, the Black Caucus or Al Sharpton made a mention of blacks slaughtering blacks. Meanwhile, the mainstream media made not one mention of “Black Flash Mobs” or “Black Knockout Games” where American blacks run around killing whites for the fun of it. Three blacks in Oklahoma killed a white Australian college baseball player, “For the fun of it.”
If you look at the dropout/flunkout rates in our educational systems such as a 76 percent high school dropout rate in Detroit, Michigan to 60 percent flunkout rate in Mexican-dominated Los Angeles, we continue on our downward spiral of a “functionally illiterate” civilization where dumb people outnumber educated people, but enjoy endless welfare, food, cell phones, medical care and housing on the backs of those of us who study, work and contribute.
On the federal level, we see a culture of corruption in the Obama White House and Congress that gave us incompetence, malfeasance and covered up the Benghazi murders, Fast and Furious gun running, NSA spying, 22 Islamic jihad compounds now operating in America and imported tens of thousands of Muslims via legal immigration that will end up undermining our country’s culture, language and laws.
Sharia Law charges into our country as fast as their numbers grow. Obama features eight Islamic staff working full time in the White House. In the next three years, we will see countless tens of thousands of Muslims imported into America to bring “hope and change” for Islam in America. At some point, Muslims will bomb our electrical grid with multiple-coordinated teams, which will make 9/11 look like a garden party. Few of us realize our vulnerability, and remember, when jihad warriors succeed, they enjoy 72 virgins in Islamic heaven.
On the health-care front, Obamacare stumbled, faltered and fell on every level. Ironically, Americans show they don’t care about their health, as over half of our population grows intolerably obese. Fifty millions Americans smoke, 10 million alcoholics abound while diabetes became a national epidemic. Cancer continues as the number one killer, but few connect it to our contaminated air, water and soil via endless chemicals injected into our biosphere.
On the trade front, China owns us. They buy U.S. companies, land and entire office districts here in the USA. By the time they get done, they will dictate what we do, who we are and how we operate.
As we transform and deform into a polyglot, chaotic, multi-lingual and multicultural society, we continue to watch the Middle Class degrade into non-existence. We watch the American flag become the Mexican flag, the Middle Eastern flag and hundreds of other flags from immigrants that could care less about America.
On the international front, no one suspects or reports on the growing radioactive plume originating from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdown. That radio-active water circulates into all the oceans—contaminating every living creature below the waters around the world—and contaminating all the fish and marine life we use for food. That event will prove the greatest ecological debacle for humanity for all of history. Cancers, destroyed eco-systems, degraded oceans and much worse await humanity.
What’s amazing about 2013? Men wasted 29 hours weekly watching the idiot box as to football, baseball, hockey and basketball. For the Americans with jobs, we partied, played and ordered pizza. We drove around without the faintest clue as to what Congress and Obama continue accomplishing: utterly and completely ignoring our sacred Constitution and Bill of Rights.

As we dance into 2014, I can only appreciate that our country faces financial collapse, sociological degradation, environmental deterioration, accelerated immigration numbers to 2.0 million annually, millions of jobless whites, blacks and Hispanics, energy exhaustion, environmental breakdown and resource depletion. 
Will 2014 get better? This should foreshadow the answer as Mark Twain said, “Suppose you were an idiot; and suppose you were a member of Congress; ah, but I repeat myself.”
Another Facebook writer said, “Obama is what you get when you allow idiots, illegals and welfare recipients to vote.”

“Deliver us from Evil” best prayer for 2014
Obama's Church-Free Christmas
By Judi McLeod
*******
*******
The best news from this year’s Obama Hawaiian vacation is that the Obama family did not bother to go to church on Christmas Day.The fact that Barack ignored church service on the day the world celebrates the Birthday of Jesus should come as good news to Christians because it’s a sure sign that whatever Obama is rooted in, it is not the Almighty.
According to yesterday’s New York Times headline: ‘As the Obamas Celebrate Christmas, Rituals of Faith Become Less Visible’.
Worship of the Almighty is written off as “rituals of faith” by the NYT.
Leave it to the NYT to come up with a way to cover for the Obamas thumbing their nose at the Creator.
The only “birthday news” coming out of Hawaii is the White House party being planned for Michelle Obama’s January 17 birthday when she turns a self-described “fabulous 50”.
“HONOLULU-President Obama celebrated a low-key Christmas in Hawaii this year. He sang carols, opened presents with his family, and visited a nearby military base to wish the troops “Mele Kalikimaka”—the Hawaiian phrase meaning “Merry Christmas”. (New York Times, Dec. 28, 2013). “But the one thing the president and his family did not do—something they have rarely done since he entered the White House—was attend Christmas service.”
And the NYT is feeding its readers a baloney sandwich by claiming that “Obama’s habits appear to be in step with a changing America, with fewer people these days reporting that they attend church on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve. According to a Pew Research Center study released this month, 54 percent of adults said they planned to attend Christmas services, while 69 percent said they traditionally did so as children.”
So, the Obamas read the Pew Research Center study and decided no Christmas Eve or Christmas Day church service for them? No, they likely slept through the pealing church bells, dawdled over brekkie, before singing Christmas carols, opening presents and visiting a nearby military base.
But wait a minute: Barack’s opening of presents with his family this year is a clear departure from Christmas 2008 when Politico reported that “Obama leaves the gifting to Santa”.

A 2008, seven-page cover story in People Magazine stated that Barack and Michelle do not give Christmas or birthday presents to their two young daughters “because they want to teach some limits”.

Rule No. 6 in “Obama House Rules” listed by the magazine: “No birthday or Christmas presents from Mom and Dad, who spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and, as Barack puts it, “want to teach some limits”.
But that was Christmas past and this is Christmas present.
On Day 9 into the 17-day Hawaiian trip, the usual pictures of Obama slurping shaved ice, and swinging his trademark golf clubs are scarce as proverbial hens teeth.
Perhaps the seriously-down-in-popularity-polls-not-so-long-ago- ‘Messiah’ is in hiding, evidenced by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) “paranoid” email sent out yesterday urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach
President Obama.
“The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.” (The Daily Caller, Dec. 28, 2013).
“The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”
“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.”
Obama already has a Congress that covers his back and talk of impeachment needs decisive action.
Meanwhile, the millions fighting off Obama’s evil plans to Fundamentally Transform America have the best weapon: a Jesus-taught prayer whose words ask the Almighty to “deliver us from evil”.

Looking Into My 2014 Crystal Ball
2014: Year in which Americans woke to the threat of socialism-communism and, like the Tea Party movement, began to fight back
By Alan Caruba
Pundits are expected to make predictions for the year ahead and far be it for me to avoid what, generally speaking, depends on who is making them. Major trends are already in place and easy to predict as they proceed, but it is always unknown events that upend predictions. Mother Nature and perpetrators of evil can always be counted upon to provide them.
Since the Earth has been in a seventeen-year cooling cycle, I can safely predict there will be no “global warming” in 2014 and, given the other science-based factors, the likelihood is that 2014 will experience more colder weather and may even be an earlier predictor of a mini-ice age much the same as the one that occurred from 1300 to 1850.
As mentioned, it is the unpredictable events that will affect 2014. The good news is that the U.S. has seen far fewer hurricanes, tornadoes, and forest fires in recent years. The global cooling trend, however, is likely to cause more and larger blizzards.
“Climate change”? This is now the basis of all the lies we shall hear from the President to justify his five-year delay of the Keystone oil pipeline, his continued war on coal—affordable electricity—and other Environmental Protection Agency efforts to control our lives while denying the creation of the thousands of jobs the pipeline and other energy-related development would provide. Environmentalism is the enemy of the technologies that have transformed and enhanced our lives.
The November mid-term elections hold the promise of ridding Congress of some of the Democrats who unanimously voted for ObamaCare in 2009. It will also replace those Republicans-in-name-only, RINOs, who have joined Democrats in voting for legislation that advanced the socialism that is strangling the nation by expanding the federal government. I predict the ranks of “independent” voters will increase in 2014.
The erosion of the Democratic Party base will continue as ObamaCare afflicts millions of Americans who will lose their healthcare insurance plans, be deprived of using their personal physician, and see their costs increase. It is the essence of communism, providing the government with control over one’s life and, in too many cases, causing many to die for the lack of plans they previously had or the costs of those they are required to purchase. Those leaving the party will include women and the younger generation leaving college to discover there aren’t any jobs to help them cope with the debt they incurred to attend. Hispanics, too, show signs of leaving.
It is hard to predict what will occur within the Republican Party whose leadership has
engaged in denunciations of the Tea Party movement. However, when the Tea Party movement elects more committed conservative GOP candidates, it will save the nation and the party. Suffice to say that Obamacare will be the gift that keeps on giving in 2014. It will, in time, be repealed.
Obama’s failed foreign policy will ensure that former allies will cease to trust the U.S. to support their need to deal with the rising threat of Islamic jihad in the Middle East and Africa. Obama has lost Egypt and Saudi Arabia as long-time allies. Israel is in a particularly perilous situation and the outcome of the Syrian civil war does not bode well for it or its neighbor Jordan.
Iran will be the greatest threat of war since the 1930s. And, yes, the U.S.-led “deal” will fail.

Polls reveal a growing unhappiness with the U.S. Congress. The President’s performance ratings have been falling and will continue to do so in 2014. The problem is the growth of socialism that began during and in the wake of the Great Depression of the 1930s. The pension debt and other benefits resulting from government worker unions has forced Detroit into bankruptcy and other American cities will follow.
By executive order the President just raised government salaries by 1%. Can he do that? Not really. Only the House can authorize such expenditures. Can he change ObamaCare without consulting Congress? Not really.

The mainstream media will continue to lose its credibility as the Internet affords Americans alternative means of finding out what is really occurring as opposed to the deceptive and manipulative efforts of the Obama administration. Having raised voter’s expectations of Obama, his fall will be dramatic in 2014. The mainstream media is largely composed of liberals who are the result of the transformation of education into socialist indoctrination that began in the 1960s. By contrast, conservative print and broadcast media will thrive. Fox News has more viewers than the networks and CNN, combined.
Events such as the current attack on Southern Sudan, and the on-going slaughter in Syria will continue. Christians throughout the Middle East and Africa will find themselves under continued attack. Muslim-on-Muslim violence will continue. Islamists are devoted to its “holy” war, including its own schism.
In America, privacy, an essential element of the Constitution, will continue to be diminished if Congress does not address the vast collection of information of all of our communications. Read the Fourth Amendment. It says in part that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
We may see more states enact laws to defy ObamaCare. South Carolina is currently the only one. The Tenth Amendment says “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Read the Constitution, you will not find the words “health” in it, nor “education”, nor ‘environment.’ The federal government should get out of these aspects of our lives.
My most positive prediction is that historians will look back at 2014 as the year in which Americans woke to the threat of socialism-communism and, like the Tea Party movement, began to fight back.

Good-bye 2013, we won’t miss you
Red Lines, Boston Marathon, ObamaCare, IRS
By Marta H. Mossburg
If 2013 were a beauty pageant, it would be the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. If it were a movie, it would be “Titanic.” If it were a song, it would be “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus.
ObamaCare is its defining story and should be. Learning that the foundational promises of ObamaCare – if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor and if you can’t afford care, you will be able to – were colossal lies from the beginning and would have been enough to ruin 2013 for people either stuck with significantly higher health insurance bills or faced with losing life saving care no longer covered under the new legally compliant plans.
But it is as if it were one long stream of bizarre, sometimes life threatening, other times life-diminishing spectacle, like a play co-written and performed by al-Qaida and Lady Gaga.
It is the year Americans found out that some of us were more deserving of Internal Revenue Service scrutiny than others and the year that Edward Snowden revealed every American’s rights are equally violated by the National Security Agency.
It is the year that the “most transparent administration in history” spied on reporters and told Americans repeatedly that the mass murder of 13 people at Fort Hood by Major Nidal Hasan was “workplace violence” and not terrorism.
It is the year “Weiner” made more national headlines than if a bevy of five-year-old boys were editing the nation’s newspapers and the year a (now former) talk show host suggested someone should defecate in the mouth of a prominent national female political figure with whom he disagreed.
It is the year that Miley Cyrus made “twerking” a household word and the year Texas state senator Wendy Davis received more attention for the color of her pink shoes than the content of her character.
It was a year when a young man a classmate described as “a normal pothead” helped to kill three people and injure more than 200 by planting bombs at the Boston Marathon. [Editor: Mossburg is repeating the talking points of the main media. The Boston Marathon was a staged psy-ops by the FBI and the two boys were setup.]
It is the year the nation moved from debating gay marriage to polyamory.

It is the year the Justice Department, led by a black man, sued Louisiana to force poor black children to stay in failing public schools.

It is the year a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize snapped a selfie of himself with a blonde bombshell world leader at the funeral of the Nobel Peace Prize winner whose life he eulogized.
It is the year “red lines” became no lines.
It is the year that we learned the number of children taking antipsychotic drugs has nearly tripled over the past decade.
It is the year a man in Maryland who merely questioned the supremacy of Common Core education standards being forced on U.S. public schools was arrested. Also in education, it is the year that it was revealed that Maryland, the state with the top ranked public schools in the country, has been cooking its books to achieve high scores on a national test.
It is the year boys across the country were suspended, reprimanded, and sometimes had their records permanently marked as dangerous for bringing toy guns to school, shaping their hands into the likeness of a gun and in one case, biting a food item into the shape of a gun.
It is the year that Beyonce lip-synched the national anthem at the Presidential inauguration and when performance drug-taking cyclist Lance Armstrong came kind of clean on Oprah. It is the year former Vice President and climate change warrior Al Gore sold Current TV to Big Oil, aka, Al Jazeera, netting $70 million, and the year that research revealed the world is not getting any warmer.
Oh, it is also the year Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame was suspended from the show for talking about what is in the Bible while progressive critics got him suspended for pretending the Bible says something more palatable to their cause.
Ah 2013, R.I.P.
