The American news syndicate is not a free press, neither is it American, nor is it in business to provide “news.”  The so-called “liberal” press is an essential component in the elitist agenda to rule the world; and while its left-wing slant is glaring, most Americans have no grasp whatsoever of the spiritual element that drives it.  The grim reality is that a fawning stable of psychopathic sycophants directed by a Luciferian oligarchy chairs all publically-held corporations of its choosing, runs America’s academic institutions, fills the top spots in state and national politics, and manipulates public thinking through its lap-dog media monopoly run by occultist editors, whose sole function is to dispense useful lies, conceal inconvenient facts, and demonize anyone standing to obstruct the final phase of the ongoing plan.  Those who imagine themselves to be abreast of current events by tuning in to Fox News are deceived:  Fox Corporation — owned by the diabolic tool, Rupert Murdoch (of the same cabal that runs the whole liberal industry) — was only erected as a hasty gambit to regain control over conservative viewers who in sheer disgust were leaving the national media circus entirely.  The flavor of Fox is more moderate, but the imperative to censor all news exposing the elite agenda is rigidly observed.

More insidious than the flagrant distortion of what the controlled-media reports, is the consistent non-reporting of facts and events which, if generally known, would quickly make the new world order conspiracy obvious to everyone.  The many “senseless acts of terror,” for example, now being committed throughout the U.S. are not senseless at all, but thoroughly planned (and often absurdly sloppy) soap operas.  When these contrived events are rightly seen as props in a propaganda campaign (rather than random coincidences) everything falls into place; but this view is not to be permitted and cannot even be approached without comprehending the “spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph 6:12) that pursues the scarcely veiled goal.  Beyond the damning factual details concealed by the press, there looms the foremost question in forensic investigation that is ignored by nearly everyone:  “Who stands to gain from these crimes?”  In every case the answer is the same, and all evidence leads to just one truth:  the inescapable reality of a collective lust for absolute power.

Throughout history, the elite hierarchy has arranged atrocities for political gain, and this chess game is now being played out on a massive scale in the U.S. where the public remains largely in denial:  “We don’t have conspiracies here!”  Planned acts of carnage have always been used to extort the kind of “progressive” (unconstitutional) usurpations that would otherwise meet substantial resistance — for example, the outrageously treasonous “Patriot Act” and Homeland Security bills, both of which were dead-locked in Congress until the World Trade Center hoax — and then passed easily.  (Such cowardly intrigues are grotesquely effective, but require co-operation from strategically entrenched quislings and dupes.)

In regard to the “9/11” event, although it is not generally well known due to intentionally obscured reporting, only two of the three buildings brought down were hit by aircraft, and onlookers standing outside the third building (WTC 7) were warned by city employees prior to its detonation to “leave the area” for the stated reason that it was going to be “pulled.”  Larry Silverstein, in a taped interview that never aired nationally, took credit for personally giving this order, but later recanted everything!  Individuals on the street testified of hearing a series of blasts inside the building immediately before its collapse; and investigation by demolition experts confirms that all three buildings were in fact brought down by high-tech explosives skillfully placed inside the structures; yet these admissions, revelations, and professional opinions brought only deafening silence from the national press.  The official (but guardedly admitted) explanation as to why Washington D.C. air space was so easily penetrated by third-rate camel-jockey pilots (who were flunking their flight training at a CIA air base) is that, by “coincidence,” the U.S. military, at the time of “attack,” was conducting a mock exercise that was identical to the “real” attack and thereby “confused the response effort.”  (Leaving other claimed coincidences aside, the timing and nature of Dick Cheney’s war-game should strain the credulity of even the most naive of Americans.)  The final official story in the 9/11 matter was produced by political hacks who transparently side-stepped the conspicuous facts, ignored the laws of physics, and dutifully came to the politically-correct determination that “fire” took down building seven.  And so, Americans are expected to believe that a modern steel frame skyscraper collapsed abruptly and symmetrically at free-fall speed into its own footprint, because of small blazes in a few windows that had self-extinguished by the time of collapse.  (The official story is a complete and unmitigated fraud.)  This inside operation required unrestricted access to the buildings prior to detonation — an impossible hurdle for Arab terrorists, but a piece of cake for Blackwater contractors overseen by cult-insider Bush family executives personally intervening just weeks before the 9/11 event to assume control over “security” in these three buildings.

A short list of facts among a much greater quantity of evidence is that; [1] historically, even in the case of raging inferno, fire has NEVER taken down a steel frame structure, yet it is now insisted that, in one day, fire brought down three massive steel frames.  [2] The professional nature of the demolition was instantly apparent to field experts, with video clearly showing not only complete, rapid, and symmetrical collapse of the buildings, but “central cores visibly dropping first . . . [3] material in the towers . . . converted to flour-like powder while falling . . . composed of molten steel spheres” having “thermite signature . . . [4] steel supports at anchor points completely evaporated”; and [5] “large pools of molten metal”; all indicating the use of “military grade explosives,” and entirely ruling out demolition by “spilled aviation fuel.”

The aircraft used in the 9/11 event served only as an operational distraction; just as Timothy McVeigh’s fertilizer-bomb-in-the-rental-van had been used as cover at the Murrah building in Oklahoma City; in both cases modern explosives being the real cause of the destruction.  Incompetent federal contractors in the Oklahoma job botched explosive triggers which failed to respond to “McVeigh’s” decoy, leaving much of the Murrah building standing and with un-detonated charges still attached to the outlying columns.  Two local television stations reported multiple explosions, in addition to the removal of the failed charges while the work was in progress, yet these direct observations were never mentioned again by the press.  First-responders, both police and fire personnel, personally witnessed federal agents removing these explosives, who flashed their badges when confronted but refused to be questioned concerning their activity.  Approximately thirty local officials made an issue of these seemingly unexplainable events and were thereafter systematically murdered in gangland fashion, yet this also was not thought newsworthy by the press!  Terrence Yeakey, a truly heroic on-scene police officer who was ordered by his commander to withdraw portions of his official report implicating FBI personnel, refused to do so — and was later brutally tortured while handcuffed (evidently seeking the location of evidence he was thought to possess), and assassinated with a bullet to the back of his head.  Yeakey’s execution, without any independent investigation whatsoever, was declared a “suicideby the FBI which forcibly took jurisdiction in the matter — the bureau thus intervening in a state homicide for the purpose of covering its own crimes — as it did also in the retaliation murders of other witnesses.  The inside nature of the Oklahoma operation was bizarrely highlighted by prominent politicians insisting there was “no need for investigation” and repeatedly calling for the crime scene to be immediately cleared away (as was also done in the aftermath of 9/11).  That the American people placidly accept such Machiavellian betrayal and fraud seems to confirm the adage that “Every nation gets exactly the government it deserves.”

A partial motive in the Oklahoma operation — the facts behind which were completely censored by the syndicated press — involved controversial evidence in connection with the BATF’s former raid at Waco, Texas, which evidence was stored in the Murrah building; and, much to BATF surprise and dismay, ordered by a federal court to be turned over to Texas Rangers.  Numerous federal officials at several levels faced embarrassment and severe criminal exposure from further revelations of systematic lying in covering up the Waco atrocity, now to be greatly amplified by a prolonged stalemate with the court.  All of this, however, ceased to be a problem when the proverbial “lone gunman” conveniently blew up the critical evidence with an “ANFO bomb”!  America’s judges, politicians, and news industry personnel just closed their eyes and pretended to believe that the dog ate the government’s homework.

A class room of school children died in the Murrah building, while the entire BATF staff and a selection of other federal agents were warned not to come to work on that day, and so escaped harm.  The teachers, parents, and children were NOT warned, and this issue was not pursued, discussed, or investigated by the press.  A local doctor exposed part of the scam after two FBI agents approached him with fabricated tales of personal heroism following the destruction, requesting the doctor to place a cast on one agent’s perfectly good arm (clearly intending to gain “good press” for the agency and make it appear they had been in the building).  The good doctor, however, refused to go along, and later reported to the state medical board a second doctor that submitted to the agency fraud — and then, like a long list of whistle-blowers before him, was killed in a plane crash on his way to a hearing in the matter.  Countless demolition professionals, naively thinking to help in the investigation, supplied personal affidavits certifying that it was physically impossible for a fertilizer-fuel-oil bomb to pulverize the steel-reinforced columns that supported the Murrah building, even if placed in close proximity, much less from street level.  (All of this was ignored by government officials and the press.)  In response to leaked reports of federal agents demolishing step vans with ANFO bombs at White Sands, New Mexico prior to this event; political officials simply instructed the nation to “disregard conspiracy theories,” while repeating the mantra that McVeigh “alone” engineered the destruction!  (How could they know that without an investigation?)  McVeigh was caught on video at a distant location at the time the infamous Ryder truck was rented by agency contractors; and neither McVeigh nor his CIA handler in the van with him could even find the building that McVeigh supposedly masterminded to destroy — both men on several occasions observed asking directions, and then caught on camera when finally parking at the Murrah Building.  FBI agents spent six weeks brow-beating witnesses at the Ryder Truck office into saying that the operative who rented the truck (who looked nothing like McVeigh) was McVeigh — and then celebrated their coercion skills while Justice bled to death on the street.

The only earthly obstacle to an immediate police-state in the U.S. is the fact that the Americans are considerably well armed.  When Adolf Hitler encountered this problem in taking over Germany with his national socialist party, he overcame it by staging repeated acts of gun violence with his own thugs, and then boldly arm twisting gun-control measures from a weak and compliant Reichstag under the pretense of restoring order.  History now repeats itself in America under the overtly treasonous Obama regime with Eric Holder’s operation “Fast and Furious,” a black-op intended to fast-track the confiscation of privately owned guns.  Of the many politicians and federal personnel who knew of this treachery, one ATF agent came forward to expose it:   Holder was sending large numbers of heavy weapons to Mexican drug cartels, ostensibly to “track” them, when in fact these weapons were not being tracked at all!  In the political damage-control, Holder lied to Congress, refused to turn over documents, lost his job as Attorney General, and refused to reveal what his psy-op was really about, because to do so would expose the conspiracy and his own high treason – and there will certainly be no prosecutions or any real investigation! (Think about that.) Fast-and-Furious is officially swept under the rug, but the agenda continues unabated through other illicit federal programs such as “MK-Ultra” (presently “Monarch”), a mind-control program that cranks out the parade of “nuts” and “psychos” who walk into strip malls, commit mindless acts of terror, and then typically kill themselves (thus making it impossible to implicate their handlers).  This modus operandi, with only minor variations, has succeeded throughout the world to produce a uniform result:  national gun confiscation, followed by rampant crime (all according to plan).  The disgrace of America’s lead role in carrying out this global evil was accomplished using corrupt politicians joined at the hip through interconnected and overlapping “round tables” and “secret” societies (Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus, Skull and Bones, Freemasonry, Illuminatti, Bilderburgers, Council on Foreign Relations, and so on, ad nauseam), all under the supervision of Luciferian family dynasties — Rockefeller and Rothschild at the top of the food chain — who oversee the whole planet — both Russia and China being enslaved under communist systems put in place through the tireless efforts of the U.S. State Department and financed by American tax-payers.  (We are used like fools.)

America proudly displays its depravity, with a military composed of women and sodomites bogged down in fighting endless, self-defeating, and fruitless Islamic internal-wars abroad — the result of Ishmaelite mentality and diabolic religion (Gen 16:12), a condition only made worse by U.S. meddling (timidly striking Muslim hornet nests with a broom) — while, under the pretext of helping “refugees,” the insanity is imported to America where burgeoning “gun free zones” invite militarily trained Islamic lunatics to wreak havoc on disarmed portions of the civilian public, with the news media repeatedly trotting forth distraught parents and concerned officials agonizing over all the deaths caused by firearms!  This symphony of propaganda has just one intent — to create a crescendo of left-wing hue and cry demanding that a nanny-state socialist bureaucracy provide its population of sissy-boys with a gun-free, padded-cell gulag so they can “feel safe.”

Concerning “unnecessary deaths by guns” the statistics are truly revealing, but the actual figures are anathema for gun-grabbers who must distract their audience with emotional fairy tales.  (The press feigns a deep love-of-life in lamenting “unnecessary death due to guns,” but this affection evaporates instantly on the issue of “women’s rights,” where it is rabidly insisted that taxpayers subsidize Planned Parenthood, an abortion-mill franchise whose sole function is the premeditated slaughter of a million babies every year.)  In order to place American gun deaths in perspective, the on-average eighty-three deaths per day by firearms (statistics for 2009) must be viewed in context; this number being wholly offset by the approximately four thousand times per day that guns are properly used in self-defense, where a death does NOT result.  In other words, because a gun was used, an American was not raped, robbed, or murdered, four thousand times every day, and nobody died!  The problem is not “too many guns”; but too few, especially in urban areas where police are reluctant to enter, and mobs of violent criminals are loose on the street who are undeterred by anything less than a gun pointed at them.  (Private citizens use guns to prevent crime three times more often than police do, and suppression of the second amendment in urban areas results in more crime, not less.)  Two thirds of the eighty-three gun deaths per day are suicides, leaving a balance of twenty-eight.  Of these non-suicide gun deaths, three fourths are inner-city gang related, leaving a balance of seven.  The subtracted twenty-one deaths per day are committed by criminal gangs who ought to be in jail; while, on the other hand, well armed citizens living in rural areas suffer near-zero gun deaths.  To put these seven deaths per day in further perspective, consider the fact that a hundred people are killed every day by automobiles, three hundred are killed every day because of properly prescribed FDA approved drugs and unnecessary procedures; and three thousand babies are intentionally murdered every day by their mothers with the help of a doctor who is sworn to “do no harm” (and the press is OK with it)!  These outrages continue because of a treasonous Democratic Party that stands for nothing but evil, a Republican party that stands for nothing, and a thoroughly debased society that has altogether lost its God, along with its conscience, common sense, and sanity.

The servile stooges defending unlawful federal operations — such as Waco, Columbine, Sandy Hook, 9/11, and the innumerable assassinations of decent men who hindered the elite agenda — are quite extreme in railing against those who perceive the evil, and will instantly invoke the accusation of “conspiracy theorist,” as though by merely mouthing this term, mountains of evidence and facts are made to disappear.  The drum-beat emanating from the halls of power is never directed toward the real need to facilitate the lawful right to bear arms so as to prevent future attacks; nor is it ever suggested that the perpetrators and their accomplices who engineer these treasonous operations should with manly firmness be found out and aggressively prosecuted; rather, a dumbed-down, drugged, and dazed public is cajoled into accepting passive denial and wishful-thinking as appropriate responses to the ongoing subversion and full scale war launched against them.  The monsters orchestrating this warfare have no choice but to disarm the American people in order to bring this country to its knees (which will be done, by one means or another) and it works greatly to their advantage that “educated” and patriotic Americans simply cannot comprehend that their nation is controlled at the highest levels by the most wicked of men (Luke 4:5-6), and apparently do not see that the debauchery is a prelude to tyranny, slavery, and genocide.

         Washington, D.C. has become a pagan den of iniquity that many Americans do not believe can be rehabilitated; but, at the very least, it is not the duty of “We, the people” to pretend we don&#8217t see the problem.  While the nation drowns in an ocean of lies and absurd political correctness, a puppet foreign-national with a transparently satanic agenda unlawfully occupies the White House, committing treason with every stroke of his pen.  Without even the slightest need to hide the fact that he is spearheading the utter destruction of America, Barry Sotoro (alias, Barack Obama) gets a free pass from the national “news” syndicate simply because the ruling global oligarchy that owns this Philistine also owns the propaganda industry that protects him, in addition to owning the political machinery in Washington and most of the states.  This Luciferian cabal of elitist planners not only decides who runs in critical elections; but, due to the U.S. public’s naive acceptance of electronic balloting, now controls who “wins” these dog-and-pony shows ñ while at the same time projecting the illusion of “choice.”  Proprietary software in the voting machines (owned by a private ring of globalist vendors) is SECRET and not subject to audit or examination by anyone!  As noted by Stalin, it’s not who votes that matters:  “it’s who counts the votes [or programs the software!] that determines everything.”  The official bureaucratic response to this is, “We just have to trust them,” in spite of the fact that numerous voters across the country observed their selection of Romney (an elitist clone) switch to Obama (the chosen clone) as their screens closed out, which “aberration” was recorded on video and further manifested by wide disparities between machine tabulations and exit polls.

         The plan to overrun the U.S. with Muslims has nothing to do with rescuing “widows and orphans” or improving our “multi-cultural” profile; rather, this blatant invasion by military-aged men is in fact a frontal assault against the soft underbelly of a spiritually drunken Republic (Rev 17:1-2); the final objective of which is to eradicate all evidence of Jesus Christ, “the Lion of the tribe of Juda” (Rev 5:5), from the face of the earth (Lk 21:17).  In pursuit of this goal, it was necessary for America’s enemies (both foreign and domestic) to first compromise the churches in setting up the world for the coming tribulation, and that attack was made on many fronts.  In 1954, apostate U.S. churches ñ infiltrated by Rome, “yoked” to the state through incorporation (2nd Cor 6:14), and under the advice of lawyers (Lk 11:52) ñ were offered federal tax exempt status in exchange for their freedom of speech through a diabolical “501(c)3” tax waiver scheme introduced by Lyndon Baines Johnson.  The pastors of the corporate churches greedily took the bait.  As a result, nearly all American churches are now politically-neutered, self-shackled, and specifically prohibited from speaking out against “federal policy” on pain of having their doors padlocked by the IRS.  Among the most damning consequences of this silencing of the lambs, a corrupt Supreme Court unlawfully legislates to the states that they must issue marriage licenses to sodomites, while Congress issues a death sentence against Israel by giving nuclear capability to Iran.

“We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

Now that a corrupt majority of nine unelected, black-robed federal Philistines have usurped the throne of heaven and unlawfully legislated to the American people and their states that the U.S.A. will be the Sodom and Gomorrah of Satan’s new world order; there remains available at least one honorable option for Tennessee (short of seceding from the union), assuming that today’s Tennessee politicians are not absolutely determined to follow in the treason and Godless perversions of Washington D.C.  The state of Tennessee can, and should, remove itself from the business of marrying its citizens.

Proverbs 3:27-35

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee. Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee. Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm. Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous. The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just. Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly. The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Proverbs 3:19-26

The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

Proverbs 3:11-18

My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Proverbs 2:1-22

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

Proverbs 1:20-33

Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Proverbs 1:1-19

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
