The Restless Church (Part 12b - We Have Lost Our Men)

Prophecies of 'The Assyrian': Will the Antichrist Come From Iraq?

I'm fascinated by the extensive research of Peter Goodgame.  His idea really seems to be available in only one form, which is his books.  But his books are a worthy read for Christians seeking to dive deep into the truth of Bible history and prophecy.  You may not agree with everything, but you likely will come to the point that this guy is onto something that will take you into an entirely different directions.  And hopefully prepare us for the dark days to come of course.  Watch and pray.....

Part One:
"O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger... I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge..." (Isaiah 10:5-6, KJV)
The Book of Revelation predicts the rise of a global superpower that will precede the coming of the Antichrist. The name of this world power is given as "Babylon the Great" and so we see, from Babel in Genesis to Babylon in Revelation, that mankind's rebellion against God comes full circle. In this series of articles I will show that the theme of "full circle" is applicable in more ways than one as we witness the fulfillment of prophetic events at the close of the Age.
Following the successful American invasion of Iraq, and subsequent occupation, there are many Bible scholars who are looking at the end-times prophecies of this region with renewed interest. Many of them believe that the Bible predicts the literal re-building of Babylon—the "great harlot" of Revelation 17:1—along the banks of the Euphrates River. They follow along with the views of Arthur W. Pink who, in 1923 in his comprehensive study of the Antichrist [1], pointed to Zechariah 5:5-11 which speaks of the habitation of a wicked woman being established "in the land of Shinar." Will ancient Babylon be rebuilt in the last days and somehow emerge in control of the political and economic structures of the world in fulfillment of Revelation 17-18?
Of course now that the US Military controls Iraq we can be sure that if a rebuilt Babylon does emerge it will happen only through the support of the US Government! Despite the influence of the political Right within evangelical ranks the identity of "Babylon the Great" continues to be highly debated among prophecy scholars. For many years I have believed that this entity is none other than the US Government in general and New York City in particular. And yes, I will admit that my conclusion has been influenced by the female symbolism of Mystery Babylon (Lady Liberty?), which also affects my personal expectation of who will be our next President! Having said that, lately my thinking has been influenced by my exposure to certain evidence that suggests that the "great harlot" of Revelation 17-18 is closely associated with "apostate Israel," as opposed to "faithful Israel" described in Revelation 12.[2] From this perspective New York City may yet fulfill a prophetic role, seeing as it is the political and economic "capital of the world" while at the same time it is the city with the world's largest Jewish population. Could the US invasion of Iraq and the establishment of numerous military bases (left) somehow be the fulfillment of Zechariah's prophecy which predicted the building of a base for a wicked woman (Babylon the Harlot) in the "land of Shinar"? Certainly our government's critics are quick to point out how the invasion of Iraq suited Israel's long-term agenda for the region. Whatever the case may be it does seem clear that the land of Shinar and the nation of Iraq has yet to experience the complete fulfillment of the Bible's prophetic statements.
In parallel with the recent interest regarding "Babylon" in end-times studies there has also been renewed interest in the identity of the Antichrist himself. Bible scholars have usually contented themselves with the information that comes from the New Testament on this subject, yet lately it has been discovered that the Old Testament also offers detailed insight into this mystery. I am speaking primarily of numerous Old Testament references to a certain apocalyptic figure known as "Asshur," which is a name usually translated as "the Assyrian" in English Bibles. Just who is this "Assyrian" and how do we know for sure that he is related to the Antichrist? Furthermore, once this connection is proven can we then draw conclusions regarding the Antichrist's place of origin and national or racial identity?
Messiahs, True and False
If we look at several of the prophecies of Asshur we find that he is often mentioned in parallel with prophecies of Israel's true Messiah. Perhaps the most-quoted is from the fifth chapter of Micah. The passage begins with the prophecy that Bethlehem will bring forth the Messiah, and then it continues,
"And this man (the Messiah) shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he (the Messiah) deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders." (Micah 5:5-6, KJV)
Note that it is the Messiah who will deliver Israel from the Assyrian (Hebrew-Asshur), and then Israel will experience their Millennial blessings (v.7). Furthermore, while Asshur is oppressing Israel they will be defended by "seven shepherds" and/or "eight principal men." Are these numbers intended to draw attention to the Antichrist who will be "an eighth," yet "one of the seven," as it says in Rev. 17:11? Concerning the context of Micah's prophecy, it is true that in the days of the prophets Israel was beset with the very real threat of the kingdom of Assyria (Asshur). The northern kingdom of Israel was destroyed by the Assyrian armies of King Shalmaneser V in 722 BC, and later in 701 the southern kingdom of Judah survived an Assyrian invasion under Sennacharib only through divine intervention. Yet this prophecy speaks of Asshur invading the land of Israel at a time after the appearance of the Messiah. It is hard to avoid this prophecy's end-times context.
The earliest full-length commentary of the book of Revelation that remains in existence today was written by a Slovenian bishop by the name of Victorinus Poetovionensis around the year 260 AD. In his commentary Victorinus quotes this passage from Micah and then states very bluntly: "Assur, that is, Antichrist."[3] Bible scholar Chuck Missler arrives at this very same conclusion in his study, "Antichrist: An Alternate Ending."[4] Other Bible scholars who have recently commented on the "Assyrian" Antichrist include Walid Shoebat, Joseph Chambers, and David Busch.[5]
Both Micah and the prophet Isaiah lived during the time when Assyria was a great threat to Israel yet their prophecies seem to speak on two levels. Firstly, as a warning to Israel at the time but, more importantly for us, they also look forward in time to the final appearance of Asshur as Israel's deceitful enemy and false Messiah when he will invade and occupy Israel and then finally be destroyed in the end by the true Messiah.

To Rebuild the Tower
Isaiah 9:6-7 is a very well known Messianic prophecy, but immediately after giving this prophecy Isaiah launches into a series of accusations against Israel interspersed with the repeated statement of, "For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still." The first accusation is very important, and I believe that the full message is only preserved in the Septuagint version of this ancient text, which is the Greek translation used by the early Church.[6] Here is the first of these accusations against Israel from the prophet Isaiah,
"The Lord has sent death upon Jacob, and it has come upon Israel. And all the people of Ephraim, and they that dwelt in Samaria shall know, who say in their pride and lofty heart, The bricks are fallen down, but come, let us hew stones, and cut down sycamores and cedars, and let us build for ourselves a tower." (Isaiah 9:8-10, LXX, Brenton's translation) [7]
The allusions to Genesis 11:1-9 are unmistakable and we see that the apostasy of Israel had become so complete in Isaiah's day that it was as if they had the intention in their hearts to rebuild the Tower of Babel! Because of this God's anger was kindled and his hand was stretched out in wrath. After listing His accusations God mocks Israel in apocalyptic terms, saying, "And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?" (Is.10:3). Isaiah then proceeds to predict the form that God's punishment against Israel will take,
"O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets." (10:5-6)
Isaiah gives one of the most important and beautiful Messianic prophecies in 9:6-7, but then, because of Israel's complete rejection of God to the point where they are ready to rebuild Babel, the Lord declares that Asshur will become an instrument of divine wrath directed against Israel! The text continues on to explain how Asshur will finally fulfill his usefulness to God and then, because of his prideful and blasphemous heart, God will turn against and destroy Asshur. The next passage answers the question from v.3 and shows that Israel will turn again to God after having once placed their trust in Asshur:
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth... For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian... For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction." (Isaiah 10:20-25, KJV)
The Destruction that is Decreed
In the passage above Isaiah refers to a "consumption" or "destruction" (Heb. kalah) which is "determined" or "decreed" (Heb. haras) in connection with the career of Asshur. This very same destruction that is decreed appears in the book of Daniel in a familiar end-times context:
"He will confirm a covenant with many for one `seven.' In the middle of the `seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end (destruction - kalah) that is decreed (haras) is poured out on him." (Daniel 9:27, NIV)
Many prophecy scholars believe that the covenant referred to in Daniel 9:27 is associated with the future Antichrist. This covenant is also mentioned in Isaiah 28:14-20 as a "covenant with death and hell." The verses that follow explain this covenant and reinforce the possibility that Asshur will fulfill his end-times role as the Antichrist. He will make a covenant with Israel and they will rely on him, yet he will betray them and persecute them until the Lord hears their cries and brings about the destruction that is decreed.
"The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon-- to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task. Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier; the Lord, the LORD Almighty, has told me of the destruction (kalah) decreed (haras) against the whole land." (Isaiah 28:21-22, NIV)
With the Breath of His Mouth
After concluding his predictions involving Asshur and the nation of Assyria (10:5-34) Isaiah then turns back again to the subject of the true Messiah:
"A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD--and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked." (Isaiah 11:1-4, NIV)
Isaiah 10:17 declares that the Lord's "Holy One" will burn and consume Asshur in a single day. In the passage above we find that with "the breath of his lips" the Messiah will "slay the wicked." The word "wicked" (Heb. rasha) is singular in this passage. I believe this predicts the destruction of Asshur the Antichrist in the very same manner predicted by the Apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:8,
"And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming."
A more complete picture of the fire that comes from the mouth of the Messiah at His glorious appearance is given in Isaiah 30:27-33. In this passage "the Assyrian" (Asshur) is described as nothing more than a funeral pyre (Tophet) that awaits its destined conflagration:
"Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: And his breath, as an overflowing stream... And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it." (Isaiah 30:27-33, KJV)
An Evil Seed
Isaiah's predictions of judgment go hand in hand with his predictions of blessings, and these blessings are ultimately realized in the Millennium as described in the two chapters of Isaiah 11-12. However, the Day of the Lord must be endured before the Messianic Kingdom is established, and this Day includes judgment against end-times Babylon as predicted in Isaiah 13. In this chapter Isaiah refers to "birthpangs" (v.8) and to the darkening of the sun, moon and stars (v.10), all of which is predicted by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse (Matt.24:8 and 24:29). Isaiah 13 includes a "near" prophecy of the invasion of the Medes, which was fulfilled in Daniel's day, yet the primary focus concerns the "far" Day of the Lord, which will bring the ultimate desolation of Babylon so that its end will be just like Sodom and Gomorrah.
After Isaiah predicts the fall of Babylon he speaks again of the Millennial blessings that Israel will receive after the Lord triumphs over His enemies (Isaiah 14:1-2). Then, from this Millennial vantage point, Isaiah declares that Israel will take up a taunt against the King of Babylon. He is the one who oppressed Israel during the Day of the Lord, and he is the one who was given the rod of the wrath of God to punish the nations. Notice how Isaiah 14:3-6 shows the end result of Isaiah 10:3-6,
Isaiah 10:3-6: "And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. O Assyrian [Asshur], the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets."
Isaiah 14:3-6: "And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth."
From the Millennial vantage point it becomes obvious that Isaiah's description of the King of Babylon is in fact a description of the Antichrist. Israel will look back and taunt the anti-messiah after they are rescued from certain annihilation by the true Messiah.
I distinctly remember a radio program from several years ago in which Art Bell interviewed the late Father Malachi Martin (right), the prolific author and experienced exorcist, who staunchly affirmed that Satan and Lucifer are two very distinct demons. I mention this only because Isaiah refers to the King of Babylon as "Lucifer" and if our conclusions so far are correct then this must mean that Lucifer is another name for the Antichrist, rather than another name for Satan which is the traditional view. Here is that most famous passage as translated from the Greek Old Testament which includes a provocative statement at the end:
"How has Lucifer, that rose in the morning, fallen from heaven! He that sent orders to all the nations is crushed to the earth. But thou saidst in thine heart, I will go up to heaven, I will set my throne above the stars of heaven... I will be like the Most High. But now thou shalt go down to hell, even to the foundations of the earth... All the kings of the nations lie in honour, every man in his house. But thou shalt be cast forth on the mountains, as a loathed carcase... As a garment defiled with blood shall not be pure, so neither shalt thou be pure; because thou hast destroyed my land, and hast slain my people: thou shalt not endure for ever, —thou an evil seed." (Isaiah 14:12-20, LXX)
By referring to the "evil seed" I believe that Isaiah points to a particular prophecy from the book of Genesis. It is a prophecy known as the Proto-Evangelium or "First Gospel." It is the first recorded Biblical prophecy of the Messiah (the "seed of the woman") but at the same time it also predicts the coming of the anti-messiah who will be the "seed of the serpent":
"And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." (Genesis 3:14-15, KJV)
Asshur, King of Babylon
Isaiah's prophecy about the King of Babylon concludes with words that take us back to the initial introduction of Asshur as an instrument of God's wrath. Remember that Asshur is introduced following God's accusation that the people of Israel had it in their hearts to rebuild the Tower of Babel, and after four repetitions of the statement, "For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still." Here now is the conclusion to the prophecy of the King of Babylon [8] which explains that the rise and fall of Asshur the Antichrist is the end-times manifestation of the Lord's outstretched hand. The earth will first experience the wrath of the anti-messiah before it will enjoy the blessings that will arrive with the true Messiah:
"The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: That I will break the Assyrian [Asshur] in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?" (Isaiah 14:24-27, KJV)
With the prophecies of Asshur we see that there is a pattern. During the time of Isaiah the people of Israel had fallen so deeply into apostasy that the Lord declared that it was as if they intended in their proud hearts to rebuild the Tower of Babel. Because of this God sent the nation of Assyria [Asshur] to humble and oppress them so that they would turn back to the Lord. In the book of Revelation we see the same pattern associated with the "great city" known as Babylon. One way or another the rebellious desire that is mentioned in Isaiah 9:10 (LXX) of "come... let us build for ourselves a tower" is fulfilled in the last days. And just as in ancient times God will again use Asshur to humble Israel and the world. Except this time Asshur will be an individual instead of a country—a king instead of a kingdom. He will be the anti-messiah energized by Satan's power but directed and then finally destroyed by God Almighty.
So who is "the Assyrian"? Is this merely a title that should be taken only as a hint to his national identity or regional origin? In future installments of this series we will see that the Antichrist does have a Mesopotamian origin, but not in the way that many people have been led to expect. It is my belief that the Hebrew name "Asshur" should not be interpreted by the generalized and vague designation of "the Assyrian," but should be interpreted simply as "Asshur." The name is precise and specific and is much more than a mere hint. Asshur is Asshur. Asshur is the Antichrist.
So who is Asshur and how can we positively identify this end-times anti-messiah who plays such a prominent role in the book of Revelation? As this series continues we will discover that the answer is found, once again, in the book of Genesis.

Pope Francis was warned about schisms within the Church fomented by priests and the infiltration of evil

That Satanic supporters/worshippers exist in the highest ranks of the Roman Church should be obvious to any who care to look closely at the facts and actions of the Roman Church leaders.  However, lest you need any more confirmation of these ideas, here they are, courtesy of the Roman Church.  If you are in the Roman Church, now is the time to flee...Interesting that this comes to us from a website known as "Protect the Pope".  The question should be who will protect us?

St-Michael-the-ArchangelThe Holy See has taken the unprecedented step of releasing the meditation delivered to the cardinal-electors, behind the closed doors of the Sistine Chapel, immediately before the start of the voting that concluded in the election of Pope Francis. Only the Holy Father could have given permission for the publication of Cardinal Prosper Grech’s meditation. The Cardinal’s hard-hitting meditation includes a warning to the future pope about the schisms being created in the Church by priests:

Lurking Schisms

‘No less easy for the future pontiff will be the task of keeping unity in the Catholic Church itself. Between ultratraditionalist extremists and ultraprogressive extremists, between priests who rebel against obedience and those who do not recognize the signs of the times, there will always be the danger of minor schisms that not only damage the Church but also go against the will of God: unity at all costs. Butt unity does not mean uniformity. It is evident that this does not close the doors to the intra-ecclesial discussion present in the whole history of the Church. All are free to express their thoughts on the task of the Church, but they should be proposals in line with that “depositum fidei” which the pontiff together with all of the bishops has the task of guarding. […]‘

[Protect the Pope comment: It is important to underline that Cardinal Grech blames the schisms within the Church as being caused by two groups of priests,ultratraditionalist extremists and ultraprogressive extremists. Though Cardinal Grech divides these priests into two camps, those priests who 'rebel against obedience' and those priests 'who do not recognize the signs of the times', both ultratraditionalist extremists and ultraprogressive extremists have these two faults in common. They are both disobedient and both fail to read the signs of the times in harmony with revelation, safeguarded by the Magisterium].

Cardinal Prosper Grech also warned Pope Francis about the infiltration of evil within the Church:


‘The evil spirit of the world, the “mysterium iniquitatis” (2 Thes 2:7), constantly strives to infiltrate the Church. Moreover, let us not forget the warning of the prophets of ancient Israel not to seek alliances with Babylon or with Egypt, but to follow a pure policy “ex fide” trusting solely in God (cf. Is 30:1; 31:1-3; Hos 12:2) and in his covenant. Courage! Christ relieves our minds when he exclaims: “Have trust, I have overcome the world” (Jn 16:33). […]‘

[Protect the Pope comment: It is encouraging that Pope Francis is heeding Cardinal Grech's warning about the 'smoke of Satan in the Church', seen in his many references to Satan in his homilies from day one of his pontificate, and his dedication of a statue of Saint Michael the Archangel in the Vatican gardens. It is interesting that Cardinal Grech references Pope Paul VI's famous 'smoke of Satan homily'. No doubt Pope Francis will have reminded himself of its prophetic content. Here is an excerpt:

from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God.”  There is doubt, incertitude, problematic, disquiet, dissatisfaction, confrontation.  There is no longer trust of the Church; they trust the first profane prophet who speaks in some journal or some social movement, and they run after him and ask him if he has the formula of true life.  And we are not alert to the fact that we are already the owners and masters of the formula of true life.  Doubt has entered our consciences, and it entered by windows that should have been open to the light.  Science exists to give us truths that do not separate from God, but make us seek him all the more and celebrate him with greater intensity; instead, science gives us criticism and doubt.  Scientists are those who more thoughtfully and more painfully exert their minds.  But they end up teaching us:  “I don’t know, we don’t know, we cannot know.”  The school becomes the gymnasium of confusion and sometimes of absurd contradictions.  Progress is celebrated, only so that it can then be demolished with revolutions that are more radical and more strange, so as to negate everything that has been achieved, and to come away as primitives after having so exalted the advances of the modern world.

This state of uncertainty even holds sway in the Church.  There was the belief that after the Council there would be a day of sunshine for the history of the Church.  Instead, it is the arrival of a day of clouds, of tempest, of darkness, of research, of uncertainty.  We preach ecumenism but we constantly separate ourselves from others.  We seek to dig abysses instead of filling them in.

How has this come about?  The Pope entrusts one of his thoughts to those who are present:  that there has been an intervention of an adverse power.  Its name is the devil, this mysterious being that the Letter of St. Peter also alludes to.  So many times, furthermore, in the Gospel, on the lips of Christ himself, the mention of this enemy of men returns.  The Holy Father observes, “We believe in something that is preternatural that has come into the world precisely to disturb, to suffocate the fruits of the Ecumenical Council, and to impede the Church from breaking into the hymn of joy at having renewed in fullness its awareness of itself.  Precisely for this reason, we should wish to be able, in this moment more than ever, to exercise the function God assigned to Peter, to strengthen the Faith of the brothers.  We should wish to communicate to you this charism of certitude that the Lord gives to him who represents him though unworthily on this earth.”  Faith gives us certitude, security, when it is based upon the Word of God accepted and consented to with our very own reason and with our very own human spirit.  Whoever believes with simplicity, with humility, sense that he is on the good road, that he has an interior testimony that strengthens him in the difficult conquest of the truth. 

Protect the Pope comment: There can be no doubt that Cardinal Grech’s warning about schisms being caused in the Church by two groups of priests includes the priests of the SSPX and the priests led by Fr Helmut Schüller and the Austrian Priests initiative and their ‘Call to Disobedience’. Both groups of priests are breaking the communion of the Church through their disobedience and misreading the signs of the times. The priests leading A Call to Action in this country should also pay heed to Cardinal Grech’s warning because even though he emphasizes the need for unity not uniformity, he is clear that  proposals on the future of the Church must be ‘in line with that “depositum fidei” which the pontiff together with all of the bishops has the task of guarding.’ A Call to Actions demands for married priests, women priests, and radical changes to the Church’s doctrine on sexual morality are definitely not in line with the ‘depositum fidei’.

Words Don’t Mean What They Meant in 1970


America has changed radically since 1970. And those changes are reflected in the changing meaning of the words we use.

Torture: In 1970 torture was forbidden by the 8th Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Torture was something done by Commies and Third World dictators. Surprise! Surprise! After the Commies went out of business our Department of Homeland Security hired the head of the East German Stasi, Marcus Wolf, and a former general of the KGB, Yegeny Primakov, to help America become a Third World dictatorship. We are now allowing US soldiers and contractors to torture and rape children in front of their parents to extract false confessions  Pain Compliance is the domestic word police and the courts use for Torture. Police are allowed to use pain to make us comply with their unconstitutional orders. This practice began with anti-abortion demonstrators and has spread to hospitals. The police recently killed a 95 year-old man who failed to comply with a doctor’s orders. No right to refuse medical treatment including vaccines with adjuvants known to sterilize you.
Wiretapping used to be illegal without a court order. It required the police or the FBI to show probable cause of a crime. Now they just record everything and use a warrant after the fact to introduce illegal evidence into court.

FBI: In 1970 the FBI still had a good reputation in most parts of America. When the jury returned a verdict in the Whitey Bulger case last week in Boston, the jurors were deeply disturbed by the gross criminality of the federal government. The FBI has been manufacturing terrorism cases at least since the 1993 bombing of the WTC in which the FBI paid to have the bomb made that killed 6 people. In Oklahoma City the DOJ and FBI covered up the killing of 168 people including 19 children at the Murrah federal building on April 19, 1995. Recently, the FBI killed one of the Boston bombing patsies, tortured another by cutting his throat, killed one witness, arrested 3 others on bogus charges and killed 2 FBI agents who might have been a problem at the trial. If men come to the door saying FBI, you will not react the same as people did back in 1970.

Job. In 1970 men had jobs. A man with a job could pay his mortgage, pay his taxes and support a stay at home wife and 2 children. Today that word job has a 77% chance that if you found it in 2013 that it is part time. 40% of all American workers today make less than a high school kid working for the minimum wage in 1968 at his first summer job.

Unemployed. Being unemployed in days gone by was not a permanent condition. 56,000 manufacturing plants and 12,000,000 jobs have been deliberately shipped overseas. Most college students are women because the jobs in education, nursing and government are designed for them. Robots are being designed to remove manufacturing, driving, warehousing, police and military jobs. After the dollar collapses and foreigners refuse to buy US Treasury bonds, American government workers and pensioners will hit a brick wall at 120 mph. Wages and pensions will be drastically cut if not eliminated. The jobs will not come back until this government goes away.

Resisting Arrest. In 1970 if you were white, resisting arrest, meant when a cop tried to arrest you that you took a swing at him. Today if you put up your arms to block blows from an officer’s baton, you are resisting arrest. A Sikh was standing in his yard when a cop pulled up, got out of his car and beat the unresisting man because he thought he was a Muslim. The man did not resist but served 2 years for resisting arrest. That is how the courts interpret the law and your lack of rights.

Homeowner. In 1970 homes were affordable and interest rates were fixed. As a child at the time, I remember the $129 a month home mortgage. At the end of 30 years you owned your home. Not so today. America 2013 is the home of the rocket docket. The banks paid 5 billion dollars in fines and in return received the right to steal your home. There are no clear titles from the county clerk for half of the homes in the US. This enables them to steal trillions of dollars in homes. That term rocket docket refers to a court where the judge and the financial regulators are in the pocket of the banks. In less than 5 minutes a married couple who own their house outright and never even had a mortgage can lose their home. The bank can submit fraudulent documents and lay claim to your house. The court will give it to the bank despite your objections. You no longer own a home. You can live in the home you bought and paid for until a bank decides to lay claim and defraud you in court. This government wants us all to become landless serfs in an outdoor Debtor’s Prison.

4th Amendment. There used to be something called a 4th Amendment that protected you against illegal searches and seizures. No longer. The NSA can store copies of every email, every web search and every phone call so they can blackmail you or your friends into doing whatever they want. Or find you and your friends in case it all goes to hell and they have to arrest all 8 million people on that Core list of people to be detained. Until then they can take control of the courts, the press, the Congress and of major corporations. And all of this in behalf of unelected and unsavory men who control the trade in illegal drugs and weapons as well as the banks.

Cooperation. In 1970 cooperation meant working together to achieve a common goal. Today Cooperation means that you bow down before illegal mandates and unconstitutional acts designed to train you like a dog to cower in fear of a ruthless master. Cooperating with the TSA or with state troopers is a One Way Street as in you allow them to violate your rights.

Disappear. In 1970 if someone disappeared it meant that in a few weeks you would hear about a divorce or missing money from the business where they worked. Then Disappear came to mean kidnapped, tortured and killed in Third World client states of the US and not just in Vietnam.  American controlled Death Squads spread from Latin America to the Middle East. Of late US Death Squads have been automated with the use drones. And notice that the US Congress gave their approval to 30,000 US drones to keep tabs on Americans. American law under the NDAA allows the government to kidnap you, to disappear you, to torture and to kill you even if you are an American citizen. It must be true because the President said so.

Terrorist. A terrorist in 1970 was someone who set off bombs in Ireland. Later on we found out that most of those IRA bombers were working for MI6 and the British military. The IRA and the Ulster men used to help unload the drugs from MI 6 flights. They worked well together when it came to making money selling narcotics. Today a terrorist is someone who believes in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and does not want the banks to steal our money by the tens of trillions of dollars. You are the Terrorist. That is why they grope your genitals at airports. Al Qaeda is an ally of the US administration. They killed over 40,000 unarmed black people in Libya and are killing Christians in Syria all for NATO, Israel and the banks. Remember: If you object to Debt Slavery, you are a Terrorist.
