will make of thee a great nation, and thou shalt be a father to many nations, and a blessing to all the families of the earth... I will give to thy seed a land wherein thou art a stranger... because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my commandments, my statutes and my laws... thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north and to the south."
The Abrahamic Covenant. The primary focus of the Book of Genesis, from chapter twelve through to the end is the history of one family: The Hebrew patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel); and his twelve sons- the tribes. It closes with chapter 50 and the death of Joseph in Egypt.
Some four-thousand years ago, God contacted Abram, a devout Chaldean, and made this solemn covenant- a birthright to be passed on to his children. It remains in effect to this very day. Where? With whom? As with any man's estate, not just anyone can claim it. But no family records prove lineage to Abraham. When a rich man dies, his heirs show up to hear the reading of the will. Many people have lined up claiming to be his heirs, but Jesus calls them impostors.
The true beneficiaries of this estate don't realize who they are! How can they be identified- and notified? Only by finding a people who kept the covenant, who "obeyed my voice and kept my commandments. We can also identify them by their symbols which they carried with them since antiquity.
Just how much of an inheritance are we talking about? A million? A billion? A trillion? Much more, according to St. Paul, they would be heirs to the world! It was not made to the Jews, for no Jews existed at the time of Abraham. The term Jew doesn't even appear until II Kings 16:6. The progenitors of Israel were called Hebrews, probably derived from the name Heber.
The Elder shall serve the Younger.
II Esdras 5:8,9. "And he said unto me, From, Abraham unto Abraham, inasmuch as Jacob and Esau were born of him, for Jacob's hand held the heel of Esau from the beginning. For Esau is the end of this world, and Jacob is the beginning that followeth."
The birthright normally goes to the eldest son, but it was passed on to Isaac, not Ishmael. To Jacob, not Esau. He sold the birthright to Jacob. Even though twins, Esau was born first. But born first isn't necessarily first-born. He married into Ishmael's line, father to the Arabs-Semites. Jacob had twelve sons, the tribes of Israel. The two brothers passed over, Ishmael and Esau have been trying to get it back ever since!
What does Israel mean? (#3478 in Strong's Concordance). A Prince; He will rule as God; right towards God. This was the name Jacob was blessed with. He wasn't Jewish but like his father and grandfather he was a Hebrew. It does not refer to race or something geopolitical. The ancient kingdom called Israel lasted only a short time. In himself, Jacob was hardly a prince but a schemer. What man is "Right towards God? Rules as God?" Who is trustworthy, without selfishness? Not a liar or pretender? "No guile was found in his mouth." There is none like Him. No, not one.
If we simply transpose two letters we find a clue: IS REAL. "Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are of a clean heart." Psalm 73:1. Zephaniah 3:13. Flying the Star of David does not identify Abraham's seed. Only the marks of a people who keep the commandments of God and accept the messiah. To the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus confided, "I am he."
Artist Yoram Raanan. "Jacob's Ladder." ↑
"And he lighted upon a certain place." Genesis 28:11. "And he dreamed of a ladder reaching to heaven, with angels ascending and descending. And the Lord stood at the top saying, I AM the God of Abraham, thy father." Jacob awoke."Surely the Lord is in this place and I knew it not!" He took the Stone he had used for a pillow, and anointed it. "And this Stone which I have set up for a pillar shall be called God's House." Or Beth-el.
In Chapter 35, knowing Esau was after him, Jacob returns to this place. But it was a sleepless night as he wrestled with an angel (his conscience) until dawn. He had tricked his bother into selling him his birthright and deceived his blind father, Isaac by wearing a disguise. He was not a giver but a getter- and he knew it. During that struggle he underwent a metamorphosis of repentance.
μετάνοια metanoia (Greek). Changing one's mind; repentance; to breakdown and rebuild.
Gone was the phony disguise. Now he was of a clean heart, a giver: He found favor with God and was given the name ISRAEL, "A prince with God." Of course, a greater Prince was to come. But Jacob was given a reminder just in case he forgot: A disjointed leg. The angel made him lame. Gen. 32:24-28.
"Bless the lads."
There are actually thirteen tribes, but no tribe called Joseph. If there was it still makes only twelve. How do we get thirteen? Jacob was nearly blind and dying when he was finally reunited with his eleventh son. "Come closer," he told Joseph. "And who are these?" Two shy boys peaked out from beneath Joseph's robe. "These are my sons, born in Egypt." They were part Egyptian, the land of the pyramids. "Let my name be upon them." Jacob made two grandchildren he never knew he had heirs to both the Name Israel and the Birthright- which would have gone to the eldest of the 12 sons. It went to the youngest instead!
When Jacob went to bless them, he crossed his hands. Joseph thought he couldn't see, his right hand was on the younger, Ephraim. Ordinarily, Manasseh would be first. "Not so my son. I know what I'm doing." Ephraim and Manasseh bring the total number of tribes to thirteen. Manasseh, 13, represents America. Our Great Seal in every detail contains the number thirteen. It's the land of Joseph, breadbasket of the earth. It's the land of Abraham, a father to many nations. Of Isaac, whose wandering descendants were called Saxons or "Isaac'sons."
"This is the new covenant I will make with Israel. I will put my laws into their minds and write them upon their hearts. And I will be to them a God and they will be to me a people.” -Jeremiah 31:31. Hebrews 8:8.
The birthright describes a blessing beyond our understanding. Not of exile, barbed wire and sirens. Not of perpetual hostility with neighboring countries, but of waves of immigration to a new place. A land where strangers coming from every race and nationality could make a home, safe to live their lives protected, unmolested by tyrants and religious wars. Where on earth have we seen such a benevolent spirit? Who has been a blessing, sharing its wealth and abundance, protecting other nations? What country was founded on the statutes given to the Hebrew fathers? Coast to coast, where else has anyone seen such rapid expansion of territory in all four directions? There is only one place that fits that description!
The first pilgrims to this land literally believed themselves to be the Children of Israel. Making their own exodus: Across a great sea was a miracle in itself- fleeing a tyrant, who like Pharaoh, chased them until the War of 1812. In search of a homeland, bringing with them the scriptures containing the ten commandments, the prophets and the Testament of Jesus Christ. The exhausted passengers and crew of the battered ship were grateful to be alive, many died along the harrowing voyage. Blown far off-course, they hit land at Cape Cod in 1620. There was no dock, no welcoming committee, nothing.
“In the place where it was said to them, ye are not my people, ye shall be called the sons of the living God.” -Romans 9:26.
Like the Israelites of old crossing the Jordan, they sanctified this new place before even setting foot on the Rock at Plymouth. They took it upon themselves to ratify again God's covenant with Abraham by signing their names to the Mayflower Compact. They understood their mission and it was clearly stated in this document: They had brought Christianity to New Israel. It was the spirit of the law, not the letter which the first settlers brought here.
The Lost Tribes.
This is the fascinating mystery of ten displaced families of Jacob. Following Solomon's reign was a divided kingdom. Judah to the south was exiled to Babylon in 586, B.C., returning from captivity after seventy years. Two generations passed without knowing God or the scriptures, but Daniel the prophet was with them in exile. The northern kingdom, called Israel had been invaded hundreds of years earlier, about 721, B.C. Ten tribes were deported to Assyria. They never to returned to Palestine.
A Mirror Image.
Note the striking similarities between the two maps of land allotments. The number of colonies is thirteen, there were thirteen tribes. Like Israel, America had a civil war too, dividing the country. Israel, ten tribes to the north often called Ephraim, seceded from southern Judah forming a confederacy. But by the time of Christ, the ten northern tribes had been deported and were long gone- seven hundred years and thousands of miles removed. Unlike Judah, they never actually saw the messiah- Whom they would have recognized not crucified!
When Assyria was conquered, the ten northern tribes were free to migrate. What exactly became of them? Many scholars believe that these extensive tribes, clans and kindred peoples traveled north by northwest, settling for a time in the Caucasus mountains. It is for this reason white people are called "Caucasians." The tribes were called names like Saxons, or Isaac'sons. Over many centuries and miles they lost track of who they originally were, but left way-marks: Naming things, carrying with them their tribal ensigns or family crests. These are the "lost sheep of the house of Israel" Jesus spoke of, and directed his disciples to go find them. People do not understand that although Palestine was Israel 3,000 years ago, it's not anymore. It's a people. To say the Jews or Israelites should have a swarthy look is racism. They are fair-skinned and blond as well as dark and brunette.
God said to Israel, "Turn back to me or I will punish you seven times for your sins." 360 days is one prophetic year. It was Isaac Newton, mathematician and student of prophecy who decoded the universal quotient: 2520, or seven times 360 years. Also called the sacred cubit: 25.20 inches. With this key we can unlock mysteries. Whereas the Jews never forgot who they are, even retaining their language, Paul says the Israelites have been purposely blinded to their true identity, penalized, serving their time. The Assyrian deportation of the ten tribes kept them in the penalty box beginning about 721, B.C. 2,520 years passed, or seven times 360 years. At the end of that period what happened? Time served!
"I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will say to them which were not my people, thou art my people, and they shall say, Thou art my God." Hosea 2:14, 23.
2520 – 721 = 1799.
All of a sudden a new nation appears: The Birthright! Victorious in war, free from oppression. With expansion of territory, new technology and the greatest infusion of capital wealth and natural resources ever seen in history. It was astonishing and supernatural. America wasn't self-made!
Heraldry. Family coats of arms. The encampment of the ancient Israelites displayed family crests or ensigns for each tribe "according to the house of their fathers." Numbers 2:34. These standards were carried by the clans as they were dispersed. Vexillology is the study of flags and their meanings which often contain heraldry- clues to a nation's provenance or origin.
Is there a Chosen People?
"Many are called but few are chosen. You did not choose me, I chose you." - Jesus
There is no chosen race. The ancient Israelites answered the call, then fell away. Exodus 19:6 describes the chosen people: Sanctified and separated unto God to keep His laws. But Peter writes this wasn't realized until the New Testament. Compare Exodus 19:6. to I Peter 2:9. The chosen are not called Israel, but by another name: έκλεκτος ecclesia (Greek) means "The Church;" the Elect, or "Ones called out.” (#588 in Strong's Concordance). The elect elect to be elected. It's entirely up to you. Jacob recognized its importance but Esau threw it away.
II Esdras 13:39-42. "And whereas thou sawest that he gathered unto him another multitude that was peaceable; these are the ten tribes, which were led away out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanasar the king of the Assyrians led away captive. And he carried them beyond the River Euphrates, to another land. But they took council among themselves to leave the heathen and go forth into a further country where never a man dwelt- that they might keep the statutes which they had not kept in their own land."
Judah's* Scepter and Joseph's Birthright.
"For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and out of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's...given unto the sons of Joseph, the son of Israel, and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright." I Chronicles 5:1,2.
There is a second part to this, called the Davidic Covenant. Whereas the Birthright is conditional, meaning we must keep our part, the Davidic is unconditional. The former is incumbent on the beneficiary, the latter is up to God.
King David was promised Israel would find a new place, safe from their enemies, and that his throne would never be empty. To find it, look for the oldest surviving monarchy in the world. The royal line of kings and queens can be traced to 1,500 years before William the Conqueror- all the way back to Judah. When Jerusalem was under siege from Babylon in 586, B.C. the throne was lost, but the scepter survived.
← The arms of the United Kingdom. Joseph is represented by the unicorn; the lion represents Judah. The motto reads, "God and my Birthright."
The prophets pointed to "the isles of the sea" to find the Israelites. Palestine isn't an island so they could not have meant Judea. Only the ten tribes of the northern kingdom were ever correctly referred to as Israel. Their odyssey was a long epic journey, some by land some by sea to the isles: Britain. Within not many years after Christ, the first Christian church was planted in Glastonbury Scotland by Joseph of Arimathea, one of the Lord's two allies in the Sanhedrin. The other was Nicodemus.
The name Britain comes from the Hebrew word B'rith, or covenant. Land of the covenant. Her maritime superiority ruled the waves and She possessed many colonies, but New England would not be one of them. The American revolution was two brothers who bitterly clashed, then became invincible allies to this day.
↑ Union Jack (Union of Jac-ob). The X represents Jacob's crossed hands when he blessed the sons of Joseph.
God's promises never fail, even though sometimes it looks that way. King Zedekiah was captured and taken in chains to Babylon. His sons, heirs to the throne slain before his eyes. The monarchy appeared to be over, but the line of Judah's kings was secretly preserved. The prophet Jeremiah is believed to have sailed from Egypt to Ireland during the exile period, taking with him the princess daughter of Zedekiah, along with his secretary Baruch- and a peculiar stone: Well worn with two iron rings for staves: It had been carried by the tribe of Joseph in the wilderness. Worth more than the Crown Jewels, kings have fought and died over this ordinary looking ancient relic, the Stone of Destiny! The strongest proof of Israel's identity is always affinity: The gravitational pull of things.
*Judah had twin sons: Pharez and Zarah. From Pharez came the Dynasty of David and Solomon through Zedekiah. But Zarah was born first: To identify him, the midwife tied a scarlet thread to the tiny finger.
The Royal Scepter is removed from Jerusalem, and replanted in the British Isles.
(far left) "The Stone of Scone" can be seen resting under the seat, encased in the British throne.
A Jewish princess? Elizabeth II was a stunning beauty at her coronation sixty-five years ago- sitting in this same chair in 1953. The sacred pillar stone can be traced back to the crowning of Judah's kings in the Bible.
As amazing as it sounds, in Ireland the princess, Tea Tephi, married into the other line of Judah: The Scarlet Thread of Zarah: The Stone brought is believed to be Jacob's pillar which he anointed at Beth-El and set up, calling it "God's House." From Ireland it was captured by Scotland, then by England, finally resting in a compartment below St. Edward's Chair in London's Westminster Abby. Why else would the royal families of the British Isles cherish this otherwise worthless piece of stone, unless they knew it was a connection to their distant past with the patriarch Jacob? The coronation ceremony in Westminster Abby follows that of Judah's kings taken from the Bible, including the pillar stone. The Queen, herself a Scot, recently returned the Stone of Destiny to her own country.
“The Appointed Place.”
The last leg of the lost Israelite's journey happened because Britain's kings cut ties with the Church of Rome, establishing the Anglican, or State Church of England with its opulent episcopacy. Separatists, seeking a place to worship freely, "to keep the statutes they had not kept in their own land," sailed across the ocean to America: New England. At last they were home! Manasseh means forgetfulness: Twenty-five hundred years of amnesia. Now they remembered who they were!
The prophets described a place completely unlike Palestine, of vast virgin forests and rivers, hidden until such time as Providence revealed- discovered by Columbus in 1492. He planted the flag of Christianity on these shores. Sephardic Jews were expelled from Spain that same year. It is believed some accompanied Columbus on his voyage, possibly making Jews among the first to see the New World! The beneficent Joseph is represented by wheat. America is the breadbasket of the earth, Amber waves of grain.
When Canaan was swept by famine, Joseph was deputy over wheat storage in Egypt. His generosity saved his starving family by supplying grain without price, just as America has done for hungry nations.
Sacerdotium and Imperium.
(Latin) God Himself acknowledged the twin powers in the tables of the law: Commandments I-V were vertical, sacred: Between man and his God; commandments VI-X were horizontal, civil: Man's relationship with his fellow man and the rest of society.
“Freedom can exist only in a society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights. - Benjamin Rush
The Magna Carta.
The Great Charter is sometimes regarded as the foundation of democracy, and parent document to our own constitution. But it did not happen without a revolution: The barons forced King John I to sign it in 1215. The Charter remains a symbol of defense against arbitrary, tyrannical rulers, and as a guarantor of individual liberties. No taxes could be demanded without the general consent of the realm, represented by the barons and churchmen.
Habeas Corpus. The 39th clause gave all free men the right to justice and a fair trial. The Parliament of England had its roots in the restrictions on the power of kings written into Magna Carta (1215), which explicitly protected certain rights of the King's subjects and implicitly supported what became the English writ of habeas corpus, safeguarding individual freedom against unlawful imprisonment with right to appeal.
No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land. To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.
Φιλαδελφια (Greek: Philadelphia).
From the name of a city in Asia Minor mentioned in the New Testament. The name meant "brotherly love," from the Greek φιλεω (phileo) "to love" and αδελφος (adelphos) "brother." The city was named by its founder, William Penn, who envisioned a city of religious tolerance where no one would be persecuted.
nd to the church in Philadelphia write; I know thy works: Behold I have set before thee an open door that no man can shut... for thou hast but a little strength and hast kept my word and not denied my name... hold fast that no man take thy crown... to he that overcomes will I write the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, New Jerusalem.” -Revelation 3:7-12.
Christ Church in Philadelphia is the birthplace of the American Episcopal Church, founded in 1695 as a condition of William Penn’s Charter. Known as “The Nation’s Church,” it hosted members of the Continental Congress during the American Revolution and Presidents George Washington and John Adams in the first decade of the newly established Republic. Benjamin Franklin is buried here. At Christ Church Absalom Jones, the nation’s first black priest received his ordination.
“Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” - William Penn, 1668.
William Penn, an English Quaker, founded the city in 1682 to serve as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony. Philadelphia played an instrumental role in the American Revolution as a meeting place for the Founding Fathers of the United States, who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 at the Second Continental Congress, and the Constitution at the Philadelphia Convention of 1787.
Facing east, watching over Philadelphia from high atop City Hall stands William Penn holding his Charter of Privileges: An important founding document of freedom before the Declaration of Independence.
He ordered the casting of the Liberty Bell to celebrate in Philadelphia, the first capitol of the union. From Leviticus 25:10, it reads "...proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto the inhabitants thereof." Each colony was settled by a denomination. For example, Maryland (named after Mary) was Catholic. Penn, a Quaker, really didn't mind what your religion was in his commonwealth, so long as you didn't cause trouble and treated the Indians with respect.
This new world with it's revolutionary ideas was being keenly watched by Europe, with its feudal serfdom, ruled by kings as it had for centuries. Our closest ally was France which underwent its own violent and bloody revolution about the same time. The French played a major role in helping the colonies win, throwing off the chains of King George. The Founders were guided by divine Providence. The Birthright meant dominion.
"Israel shall be his dominion, from sea to sea.” -Psalm 72:8.
Dominion isn't the same thing as domination, and not "dominion theology" either. The Birthright belongs to America, seen in the scope of her territory, inspired ingenuity, the spirit of discovery, the wealth of natural resources and her willingness to defend it. A land protected from assault by two oceans. If ever a continent was designed where man could be free, this surely must be it. The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is a must see for every tourist. Here are preserved and exhibited the discoveries and inventions of Benjamin Franklin- a genius in many fields of study. One was the lightning rod.

"Liberty or Death."
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable. — H L Mencken
The United States Declaration of Independence is the statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress meeting at the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 4, 1776. Had the revolution failed, every signer of the Declaration knew they would face the gallows. It is enshrined at the nation's capitol.
Why was the Revolutionary War fought? Many people have no idea! Our history is being erased. Gaps of ignorance exist as to why this nation was founded, leaving people vulnerable to tyranny because they won't recognize it for what it is. The Declaration of Independence was a searing bill of indictment against King George: A line by line itemized list of grievances against the Crown which controlled shipping. Mainly, taxation without representation: The colonies were not represented in British Parliament.
The Stamp Act.
This unfair law meant a tariff on every piece of paper used for every document in the colonies; purchased from England and taxed. In fact, everything imported was taxed by the Crown far across the Atlantic. The Boston Tea Party protested British tax on tea. (The contemporary, fiscally conservative Party took its name from this episode). The revolution led to the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, the oldest surviving government Code. Did you know the Constitution allows for the people to entirely replace their government if they don't like it? It's in there.
The former Articles of Confederation were abandoned in favor of starting over with a new Constitution, ratified in 1789. The Bill of Rights was added in 1791.
← The Assembly Room of the Constitutional Convention, Philadelphia, 1787.
↑ Washington's famous "sun chair," where he presided over the 54 delegates.
Humans had rights? The world had never seen a land such as this! The dual offices of Church and State found their proper places in the colonies, based on the ideology of the Enlightenment: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity: Christian principles because Christ was the first to advance them.
But as for a wall separating the powers, the pulpits of early America knew of no such wall! Bold fiery preachers spoke what was on their hearts. In fact both clergymen and statesmen saw their role as guardians of a free conscience: To be allowed to think for oneself, and to express those thoughts in speech, print and ballot.
Man has incessantly felt the need to dominate his fellow man. Nobody ever traveled east in search of human rights, civil liberties and freedom of religion. Always to the West.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty." - St. Paul
My name Gould was changed from Goldstein by my ancestors, Jewish immigrants from Russia and Germany. Here was a different kind of society, a self-governing class of people permitted to have a free conscience. The Statue of Liberty with her torch held high welcomed all those in search of a new home where they could simply live in peace, free from the oppressive monarchies of Europe. Leaving behind everything just as Abraham did, they came to the New World. Not knowing what they would find, they just knew that here they could at least have a chance. How grateful they were for that chance!
Freedom isn't Free.
During the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge, George Washington, general of of the Continental Army, pleaded with congress for money to care for his freezing, starving troops, dressed in rags many without boots.
No money came. The guns are quiet now, but soldiers huts still stand as a ghostly reminder. Over 2,500 men died here of exposure, starvation and disease. For what? Taxation with representation; the right to a free conscience; to protest and dissent without fear of arrest or imprisonment. For our Liberty which we take for granted.
During the French and Indian War, George Washington was fired upon seventeen times. To the amazement of the brave, not a single bullet pierced him! The American Indian was convinced this man on the horse was protected by God.
A Jew Finances the War.
When there was no money to fund the Continental Army against the superior British military. Haym Salomon, a Polish-born Jewish immigrant to America played an important role in financing the Revolution. When the war began, Salomon was operating as a financial broker in New York City. Without his help the outcome of the war might have been very different.
←1781. With a white flag, the war ends with the British surrender at Yorktown. But like Pharaoh of Egypt chasing the Children of Israel, the stubborn Crown attacked once more: The War of 1812. Major Mordecai Myers (1776-1871) was an American-Jewish hero of the War of 1812. Born to immigrant parents, he was a child of Loyalists during the American Revolution. Meyers was a Freemason. He joined the army and was commissioned captain; served with the Thirteenth Infantry, wounded in the battle of Chrysler's Field and promoted to Major.
Washington's Vision at Valley Forge.
In the National Tribune, 1880, an article appeared giving an account of the "Vision of Washington" at Valley Forge. The story was confirmed by Anthony Sherman who was at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78. Washington confided in him: One afternoon he was alone in his headquarters at his table writing a dispatch, when there appeared a female angelic being filling the room with light. While in a trance, he was shown three wars on domestic soil. "As long as there are stars in heaven, the Union will survive the third and worst of these," said the Angel. The second was the War of 1812 (middle flag- the motto "Thy will be done."). The third was indeed the worst- tearing apart the Union: The Civil War, 618,000 dead. More than all the wars combined not including Vietnam.
But the threat to liberty continues: Anti-American Muslims are being elected to political office, taking the oath on the Koran. Clandestine Jihad camps are reported in remote locations. Our southern border is a sieve for outsiders of unknown identity, demanding to be allowed in. Not to become citizens but to take advantage of America's generous spirit. If we defend our sovereignty we are blamed for their suffering and accused of being insensitive. Wherever man is free, someone else wants to take it away, tell us what to do and make us pay for it.
"To bigotry no sanction. To persecution, no assistance!"
These famous words were the conclusion of a letter George Washington wrote to the synagogue at Providence, RI. to Jews in the colonies letting them know they were welcome and safe here. Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn wanted to come to America so badly, he walked from a Yiddish village in Poland all the way to England where he stowed away on a ship. He kissed the ground when he arrived.
Porgy and Bess 1959 film version with Sidney Poitier and Dorothy Dandridge: Directed by Otto Preminger. One of this year's additions to the Library of Congress' National Film Registry.
Goldwyn produced eighty motion pictures, his last was "Porgy and Bess." It was a love story, an opera about life in the South composed by George Gershwin. It opens with his enduring hit song, "Summertime." Like no other place on earth, the flow of Eastern European Jews seeking refuge brought some of the finest minds and talent to America: Artists, writers, scientists, doctors. Gershwin was influenced by Jazz, a priceless contribution from black culture. Today this film is considered racist, never shown and unavailable. Why? What's wrong with it?
“The truth is, man has grown bored with freedom.” - Benito Mussolini, 1923.
Was he right? The negro is by no means the first race of people to be held in bondage. Racism in America was dissipating until a black president politicized it, opening old wounds and banning the Confederate flag- a blatant violation of the first amendment: Free expression, especially that of flags: Inert things by themselves. It is we who give them meaning. Good or bad, the war between the states is an important part of our history. And because it is history, resentment should cease with forgiveness. Blacks helped to build this nation, maybe they should consider that instead.
Watching professional football is a uniquely American pastime, practically a religion among its fans with great stadiums like the gladiator spectacles of ancient Rome. The game has always commenced with singing our national anthem as fans of all races and creeds stand in patriotic solidarity. Now the arrogant players refuse to stand in protest while being paid millions just for throwing and catching a ball. Who is being oppressed? Civil rights include the right to be civil. Ask any one of them who wrote this song and why, they don't know or even care.

The Great Seal of the United States.
For official documents, the newly formed government required a legal design representing the Republic. Armorial heraldry of its own. How to depict a new nation was an exciting task and early designs began forming. Every one contained the motif of the eagle and stars: Symbols taken from the Bible.
Square, level and plumb is how any building must be built if it is to withstand. The square and compasses symbolizes this idea. The "G" stands not for God but geometry.
Freemasonry is an ancient system designed to impart morality and ethics and teach mutual service to its members. Although Masonry expresses a belief in a Supreme Deity and the immortality of the human soul, Freemasonry is not a religion. Each individual is entitled to hold their own view about the nature of God. In order to join Freemasonry, individuals must believe in God, but they are left to their own choice as to the attributes of God. Freemasonry lacks the tenets which define an organization as a “Religion.” Instead, Masonry seeks to make good individuals better through education, improvement, and service. While containing religious elements, Masonry is also a fraternal organization that encourages morality, charity, and philosophical studies. It has no clergy, no sacraments, nor a prescribed path of salvation. Moreover, Masonry rejects dogma and inspires individuals to utilize reason to search for Truth. In Universal Co-Masonry, those duties include: to think high, to do well, to be tolerant to others, to search after truth, and to practice liberty under law, fraternal equality, justice and solidarity. Utilizing builders’ tools as symbols, Freemasonry teaches basic moral truths that enable individuals to meet in harmony and be charitable.
Nazi propaganda was directed to link the Jewish people and the Freemasons, and attempted to portray a “Jewish-Masonic” conspiracy. The Nazi Primer, The Official Handbook for the Schooling of Hitler Youth, attacked Freemasons for their “mistaken teaching of the equality of all men” by which these groups were said to be seeking power over the world. The Gestapo seized the membership lists of the Grand Lodges and ransacked masonic libraries and lodges. (The Masonic Philosophical Society).
Freemasonry is really a simple idea, not all that secret: Building an inner temple fit for a man's spirit to dwell. The humble tools of the brick and stone worker are deeply meaningful symbols to the masons. The truncated pyramid on The Great Seal of the United States means the work is unfinished. The All-Seeing Eye of Providence keeps vigil over the building of an enduring, free and civil society. And by allowing that Providence to guide their thoughts, the closest thing to a working republic was established, and the proper, legal documents were drawn up under seal.
With obvious Israelitish connotations, the first idea showed Moses parting the Red Sea with Pharaoh in pursuit and Yahweh overhead. "Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God." Why was it not used? Too sectarian and too literal. How to represent a Godly nation without looking religious was a challenge for the designers. Freemasonry is a brotherhood, not a religion, yet it embodies the spirit of the founder's devotion to God. It's symbols are and best suited for a nation of diverse beliefs without appearing patently Christian.
Unlike England with it's State Church, here Church and State are separate but equal powers: A balancing act universal to any intelligent, advanced society on any planet in the universe. Freemasonry was the most politically correct way of visualizing a government based on spiritual principles and Christian ideals: These are not "secret signs" but open to study. On June 2oth, 1782, the final version of the Great Seal was adopted by the Continental Congress; die-cast for impress.
There is nothing sinister about it, never intended to represent the Illuminati. Superstition and ignorance has cast undue suspicion on these beautiful, powerful images. Yes, they do contain masonic symbols but many of the founders were Masons, including George Washington. Every component was carefully and thoughtfully designed. The most prominent feature is the repetition of number thirteen.
Its appearance on our one dollar currency note was approved by President Franklin Roosevelt- himself a mason. We should be proud of these symbols.
Many insist we are not a Christian nation, and that is true, but in every little town the first thing seen from a distance is usually a steeple- some churches dating back to the 1600's. This was the faith of many of our forefathers: White Englishmen worshiping a Jew, Christ the Lord. The seed of Abraham is a spiritual seed. Male or female; Jew or gentile; bond or free, all are equal in Christ: This is what makes America unique.
But like the regime we fought, our country is beginning to regress, taking away freedom from the states and consolidating all authority into federal. The separation of powers was intended to protect the free exercise of faith, but has instead become a pretext for government intrusion into the lives of its people. The constitution says nothing about any wall. The idea was contrived for no other purpose than to gradually suppress the scriptures and silence traditional values, replacing them with humanism: There is no God, we don't want Him even if there was.
Among the signers of the Declaration of Independence was John Jay, first justice of the supreme court. It was Moses who established the court system the founders used in designing their new government based on the laws given at Mt. Sinai. After leaving Egypt, the Children of Israel, some two-million strong lived a nomadic existence. The number of complaints brought to Moses was so great he appointed magistrates, the wisest men of each tribe to hear cases and decide unbiased verdicts based on the merits of each. Deuteronomy 1:16, 17. "If the cause is too difficult for you, bring it to me and I will hear it." So the first Supreme Court justice was Moses himself.
"The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane." — Marcus Aurelius
Throwing God out is insane. Now our liberal court system makes up its own laws, media is leftist propaganda, elections are limited to only two corrupt parties and to wish someone "Merry Christmas" or any reference to Christmas is no longer permitted. What happened?
April, 1966. Time Cover.
In 1963, one woman, atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair (1919-1995) sued and successfully had prayer removed from public schools in an astonishing 8-1 verdict. Relishing victory, here she is pictured on the steps of the Supreme Court with her two sons. That same year the president was assassinated. Everything changed after that, a decline in our society. Maybe prayer doesn't belong in schools, but faith played an important role in the history of our nation and it's remarkable prosperity and success. Now school textbooks are sanitized, history is revised, patriotism is "racism" and monuments are torn down. Despite mending the old ways, we are told to feel ashamed of our heritage. To apologize to the world.
The baneful effect of her legacy is the gift that keeps on giving as America descends into apostasy. Her death was ruled a murder, only some bones were recovered from a shallow grave in Texas. Maybe it was poetic justice- we are free to believe or not, just don't take from God what belongs to Him, like the prayer of a child.
“They kept not the covenant of God and refused to walk in his law... Wherefore should the heathen say, where is their God?” -Psalm 78:10;79:10.
Man hates authority and the tables of the law represent authority. A Higher One. They are mocked and smashed to pieces for fear they might actually be obeyed, mistakenly thinking they represent sectarian religion. Moses was given a government, not a religion. Desecration of the tables should be offensive to the Jews- an outrage. Yet we hear no objection from them! It seems only white "gentiles" cherish the tablets carved by the finger of God at Mt. Sinai.
As if God can't see in the dark, under the cloak of night the ten commandments are removed from the courthouse grounds in Oklahoma City. "They have cast thy laws behind their back."
The egregious way in which America has treated God is another clue: The Israelites of old were idolatrous and flaunted their blasphemy, rebelling against the Holy One Who had given them so much and asked for so little in return: Only to be loved. For this reason they were invaded by Assyria and deported.
"Piss Christ." 1987, by the American artist and photographer Andres Serrano. It depicts a crucifix submerged in a glass tank of the artist's urine. It was a winner in a competition sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, a government agency, paid for by taxpayer dollars. This is considered art.
Much of the faith community has grown sheepish for fear of losing its tax exempt status. In the 1950’s legislation was passed denying the right of free speech to all 501(c)(3) organizations. Lois Lerner of the IRS was called before a congressional committee and asked why she denied applications for conservative groups. She pleaded the 5th for her role in the agency's criminality. The strings attached to tax-exemption left a spiritual vacuum in the political arena, prohibiting pulpits of free expression. The IRS has unlimited power to threaten and ruin lives. Putting money before freedom serves the government in much the same way as extortion, exactly the form of tyranny our founders warned of.
But even with checks in place they never anticipated what we are seeing today: Where God is unwelcome, hell rules. Having everything handed to you robs life of its true purpose and breeds contempt for authority, decency and civility. In this boiling brew of resentment tempers flare over the smallest things. Every remark, every insinuation is taken seriously, real or imagined. Any reason to feel insulted, persecuted or victimized. Petty disputes are settled with guns.
Our universities are teaching naive, impressionable students to despise the founders' vision of freedom, filling their heads with romantic dreams of Marxist socialism. Churches are careful not to offend, everything is "grace." Public schools are raising our children, sent off each morning to be indoctrinated. Often parents are outraged when they discover what is being taught. God is the State, but can't seem to provide school supplies.
America is the only place where you can believe anything you want and live life however you wish. But what we we did with that blood-bought freedom is trifling, selfish and insignificant compared to what the founders staked their lives on. The pledge of allegiance is not "indoctrination of children." The very least we can do is take a moment each day to remember.
th. The Ninth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects all of the rights of the people that are not mentioned specifically elsewhere in the Constitution. It was a part of the original Bill of Rights drafted in 1787 and ratified in 1791. Rights protected are those inferred in a universal civil code to protect personal liberties from any expansion of governmental power or infringement. Because every right of the people could not possibly be mentioned, the Ninth was added.
“The Ancient Principles.”
After taking the land of Canaan, Israel was at war with other tribes already living there. This was the darkest period, the Book of Judges- a revolving cycle of straying from the law: "There was no king in Israel, and every man did what was right in his own eyes." - Judges 21:25. Chastisement came in the form of invasions. Each one brought about temporary repentance from their appalling idolatry and decadence. But after each victory they went back to the old ways of doing as they pleased. Until the next moral decline, then the same cycle begins again- nine times!
The founders were learned Englishmen. Anglo-Saxons. Thomas Jefferson was proficient in five languages, had studied the classics and the Bible. He began noticing that the Israelites were given the kind of government which served best: Representative of the people. He called it "the ancient principles." As long as the people adhered to these principles, all was well. When they turned their back on them, they suffered. Jefferson noted it was the Anglo-Saxons who practiced this exact same form of representative government. Where did they get it? He brought his findings before the House of Burgessess in Virginia as the best design to incorporate: Not a theocracy but a republic.
Roger Scruton argues that democracy alone cannot provide personal and political freedom unless the institutions of civil society are also present. With its emphasis on notions of social contract and the collective will of all the voters, democracy can also be characterized as a form of political collectivism. The votes of the powerful were given more weight through a system of gerrymandering, so most high officials, including members of the Senate, came from a few wealthy and noble families.
A characteristic of representative democracy is that while the representatives are elected by the people to act in the people's interest, they retain the freedom to exercise their own judgement as how best to do so. Such reasons have driven criticism upon representative democracy. The Founding Fathers of the United States rarely praised and often criticized democracy, which in their time tended to specifically mean direct democracy, often without the protection of a constitution enshrining basic rights; James Madison argued, especially in The Federalist No. 10, that what distinguished a direct democracy from a republic was that the former became weaker as it got larger and suffered more violently from the effects of faction, whereas a republic could get stronger as it got larger and combats faction by its very structure. John Adams insisted what was critical to American values was that the government be "bound by fixed laws, which the people have a voice in making and a right to defend."
The Constitutional Convention met in secret, even keeping the windows closed in the summer heat. Benjamin Franklin was stopped on the street in Philadelphia and asked by a woman,
Well, what kind of government are you giving us, a republic or a monarchy? "A republic, madam, if you can keep it."
We have not kept it. The American people are subjected to the very tyranny that caused the revolution: An Oligarchy.
The Progressive Income Tax Law robs everyone who works by taking almost one-half of wages and spending it without asking first. Squandering it, hiding it and losing track of it. The Federal Reserve Act was another. It prohibits private banking and sets interest rates. It also prints fiat money, no longer aesthetic looking as it once was. Money was actually worth more than just the paper: Silver and gold. Our provenance was beautifully engraved on our currency, like this example of a silver certificate from 1899.
The Federal Reserve.
- The Federal Reserve is a misleading name: It is neither federal, nor is there any "reserve." Prior to the Federal Reserve Act of 1914, banks were fairly small and privately owned. They were part of every small town, personally acquainted with their customers- depositors. Farmers especially; merchants; people needing a loan to start a business, or pay off debt. Local bankers were for the most part honest, trustworthy. A Trust Company. Vaults provided safekeeping for things precious, documents etc.
All that changed when a group of the richest men met here, in this mansion on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia. So secret was this meeting, the plan was carefully devised so that no one would ever know about it until decades after it happened. The place is aptly named too, for what was born here in these plush rooms filled with club chairs and cigar smoke, was a "Mr. Hyde." It was the end of the old ways of banking. The beginning of a centralized, privately owned corporation closed to prying eyes and high above accountability. A rip-off scheme known as THE FED. The idea of a centralized bank was something the founders warned against- but it was Paul Warburg, a Jewish financier who sold a naive Woodrow Wilson on the idea to make America's banks "stable."
Ultimately, the FED has illegally stripped Americans of their assets and bankrupted this nation. Precious metals were phased out as backing up printed paper. Now, "Federal Reserve Notes" are fiat money: A genuine looking but worthless currency note. It's an I.O.U. - The FED owes you, but you will never collect.
The Federal Reserve instigated World War I, brought about the Great Depression, funded Hitler and financed the communist Revolution. Federal Reserve wars and revolutions were paid for by the American individual by means of devaluation of their cash: The Owners have profited enormously from wars and recessions induced during the last 100 years, devaluing the American greenback by over 97 %. With the U.S. going off the gold standard, America is on the verge of turning into another Wiemar Republic. The Fed intends to steal the remainder of this nation's wealth which they don’t own already.
Man cannot rule himself. It has been proven again and again. Apart from the Creator, the creature is not intelligent enough. Not even scientists, mostly atheists who think the world can't live without them. The founders had already seen the blood thirst for personal power and control by elites, concerned such defects in human character would threaten their republic and rear its ugly head at some future point. They were right. Treason begins at the highest levels of government. It creeps in, calling itself socialism. "For the good of all."
Avowed Socialists are now being elected to our Congress, promising the things others have done: Live for free, never mind how we'll pay for it. It always ends the same, like Cuban and South American dictatorships now being fled by people trying to survive these wonderful promises.
↑ The Fabian stained glass window was designed by George Bernard Shaw.
The Fabian Society, founded in 1884 is a British socialist organization whose purpose is to advance the principles of democratic socialism gradually over time, reforming democracies rather than by revolutionary overthrow. No matter how long it takes. evolutionary socialism is patient- the Fabians are patient, willing to wait generations to see its realization.
In 1971, the late Chicago Tribune columnist Walter Trohan wrote, "It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democratic, are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year.... [I]n 1848 to be exact, Karl Marx promulgated his program for the socialized state in the Communist Manifesto..."
Trohan believed the trend was inevitable. He further said:
"Conservatives should recognize that this country is going deeper into socialism, and will see expansion of federal overreach whether Republicans or Democrats are in power."
The average American is told that the ideal is to stay in the middle of the road, which is termed "Democracy," or Fabian Socialism. The middle of the road has been creeping leftward for eighty years. The choice is between Communism on the left (which is international socialism, or globalism) on one end of the spectrum, National Socialism on the other end, or Fabian Socialism in the middle. The whole spectrum is socialist! Where would you place an anarchist? Where do you put a person who believes in a Constitutional Republic and the free enterprise system? Neither is represented.
The United States was created as a Republic with a limited government, but since the election of Woodrow Wilson in 1912, and the nearly one hundred social programs instituted under FDR, we have been moving left towards total government with each new piece of socialist legislation. Communism is, by definition, total government. If you have total government it makes little difference whether you call it Communism, Fascism, or Socialism it's all pretty much the same.
It was Thomas Jefferson's view that government governs best which governs least. Our forefathers established this country with the very least possible amount of government. Although the free enterprise system is not mentioned specifically in the Constitution, it is the only one which can exist under a Constitutional Republic. All collectivist systems require power in government which the Constitution did not grant.
The failed dream of a classless society. A collective of labor. Every citizen is an economic unit; no personal reward or ownership of property.
In its modern form, communism grew out of the socialist movement in 19th-century Europe. As the Industrial Revolution advanced, socialist critics blamed capitalism for the misery of the proletariat—a new class of urban factory workers who labored under often-hazardous conditions. Foremost among these critics were Karl Marx and his associate Friedrich Engels. In 1848, Marx and Engels offered a new definition of communism and popularized the term in their famous pamphlet The Communist Manifesto. With capitalism the world was divided between two major classes: the proletariat and the bourgeoisie. These classes are directly antagonistic. Marx was theory, whereas Lenin was revolutionary.
"We want to achieve a new and better order of society: in this new and better society there must be neither rich nor poor; all will have to work. Not a handful of rich people, but all the working people must enjoy the fruits of their common labor. Machines and other improvements must serve to ease the work of all and not to enable a few to grow rich at the expense of millions and tens of millions of people. This new and better society is called socialist society. The teachings about this society are called 'socialism'."
–Vladimir Lenin, 1903
When President Obama talked about the "collective good" or what is "just" for the "collective", know that he was using totalitarian-speak. When he talked of taxing the wealthy to redistribute to the less fortunate, he was speaking of something our Founding Fathers had no intention of allowing the government to become, namely an instrument to steal the fruit of one man's labor and give it to another who had not earned it. The Democratic Party with their globalist puppet masters ignore the Constitution. The end of the Republic is near.
"They should pay their fair share," a refrain incessantly repeated by the left. Public assistance isn't about welfare but control. Encouraged by the government, it has created a subculture of dependents who won't bite the hand that feeds them at election time. By keeping the same issues unresolved year after year and pretending the government can subsidize every human need, the lie of socialism is attractive.
But here's the thing: Using Pharaoh as an example, St. Paul says, whether we like it or not, whether we like them personally or not, God has placed worldly authorities over us- for his own purposes. We are to be under their subjection. Romans 9:17. If they are corrupt or despotic, and they usually are, He will deal with them. "Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord." Rom.12:19.

To the far right is fascism: Strict, totalitarian control of human thought and behavior through suppression, propaganda and intimidation. A dictator is in control of all policy. Benito Mussolini birthed the fascist movement in Italy, one of the axis powers during WWII.
"Everything is the State. The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompassing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body. Nothing against the state. Any questioning of the government is not to be tolerated. Every human must submit to the government." - Mussolini
Joseph Goebbels at the League of Nations in Geneva, 1933. He glowers at Jewish photographer for LIFE Magazine, Alfred Eisenstaedt who waited for the right moment to boldly walk up and take what became perhaps his most famous picture. ↓
In this rare interview with help from an English interpreter, Goebbels' tone is conciliatory for the camera, but deceptive. His thoughts are far different. ↓

As minister of propaganda, he would control of all forms of print media, radio and film. The same year, 1933, he orders the burning of books, in particular Jewish writers considered "undesirable."
Targeted were artists and writers. At the same time the Nazis stole countless works of modern and impressionist art for a future museum in a thousand-year Reich which lasted only twelve years!
It was not so much by force that Hitler gained power and popularity, but through the alchemy of racial symbolism which wrought the Nazification of Germany. "Blood and soil." Runes and Nordic mythology.
(Above). The original symbol of fascism in Italy under Benito Mussolini was the fasces: An ancient Imperial Roman symbol of power: An axe bound with sticks. It is seen in our own government, two fascia displayed prominently on either side of the wall of the House of Representatives.
Lincoln's hands rest on two fascia; The ancient symbol appears on our coinage, memorials- everywhere in Washington, even above the door to the Oval Office! This icon would never be considered by the founders as part of the Great Seal. It isn't a masonic sign either. So why is it there? Is America fascist?
When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing, they believe in anything. — G. K. Chesterton
In 1988, I was a seminary student in Philadelphia when the professor entered the classroom and began by saying "something is coming that will radically change how people think and behave. It's called Political Correctness, or P.C. for short." Of course we had no idea what he was talking about at the time, but his startling prediction came true to the letter!
The face of fascism is different now than it was in the 1930's: It is rabid liberalism and the restriction of free speech used to silence a large segment of society: All whites. Conservatives, republicans, patriots, second amendment advocates, pro-lifers, veterans, Christians- even President Trump is called fascist. That'a a lot of people to accuse! Name-calling has become the weapon of choice. It works. The white man cowers under the threat of the big three: You're a fascist, you're a racist, you're an anti-Semite. So powerful are these slurs it can stain and ruin one's life and livelihood. What is their purpose? To take away our Liberty and bring an end to our constitutional republic. It's the poison of political correctness, fascists calling everyone else fascist!
"The Thirteenth Tribe." © 1976. (Not to be confused with Manasseh, tribe number 13). Author Arthur Koestler, a Hungarian Jew, advances the theory that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but rather from the Khazars, a Turkic people populating an empire north of and between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea. The Khazars converted to Judaism in the 8th century. The Khazar kingdom was located between the Roman and Byzantine empires; Christianity and Islam. Pressured to convert to one or the other, instead it chose Judaism. They later migrated westwards into Eastern Europe: Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary and Germany the 12th and 13th centuries when the Khazar Empire was collapsing. These make up the majority of Jewry today and are not related to the Jews of Bible times or ever lived in Palestine. If so, a gross understanding has taken place, even what Koestler calls a hoax.

Zion. (#6725). A monument or guiding pillar. A sign, a way-mark; a permanent capitol. A figure of speech; a high place. There is no suggestion whatsoever of a geopolitical state for the Jewish people.
"Der Judenstadt" (The Jewish State), was written by Theodore Herzl, president of the First Zionist Congress held in Basel, Switzerland, 1897. They took the name Zion from the Bible, used by the Old Testament prophets as a figure of speech. Zionism is not an Old Testament-based movement, nor does it reflect the etymology of the word.
There is no Star of David in the Bible. The flag was designed by Herzl himself, later adapted for the Jewish State in 1948.
It was Martin Luther who fueled hatred for the Jews in Germany. By the twentieth century many were educated, cosmopolitan and content Europeans. Then blind-sighted by considering themselves first to be Germans, Poles, Dutch, etc. Losing their citizenship was never imagined until it was too late- when the Nuremberg Laws were passed in 1934 based on ancestry. But their ancestry did not lead back to Abraham. Antisemitism is a word invented by Jews. Like the word "racism," it has no meaning by itself- but is language weaponized for the purpose of an agenda. The word stuck and is very effective. But the Jews are not Semitic at all! Question it, and you're an "antisemite."
Like a recurring nightmare, the holocaust is never allowed to stray far from the gentile conscience. Following the war, most Jews wanted to just forget it ever happened. It was over. But the holocaust is kept alive with its own holiday. Questions remain. At first, the Nazis actually tried to send as many wealthy Austrian Jews to Palestine as possible; by 1938 helping hundreds of thousands to emigrate before being stopped due to "logistics and expense," a fact which is odd. A trainload of wealthy Hungarian Jews was permitted to go to Switzerland. The desire for a Jewish homeland began in the late nineteenth century, long before the 1930's. But Herzl is quoted as using antisemitism as a means to obtaining that end, intensifying the urgent need for a "safe place" for Jews.
Following the armistice of WWI, reparations reduced the Wiemar Republic to bankruptcy. Inflation so high, German Marks were so worthless they were used to light stoves. But then suddenly came an infusion of millions in capital- from where? Jewish banking interests allegedly helped the rise of the Nazis. Unthinkable? As any good conspiracy theorist knows, one name in particular stands out...
←The armorial crest of the international banking family, the Rothschilds.
The argument that the Jews have been singled out for persecution must be preserved. The goyim (gentiles) and White Christians are blamed: Such sympathy is powerful leverage. The holocaust was the only justification for occupying Palestine. If it's questioned or the facts challenged, well that's something you just don't do. In fact, in some places it's even illegal.7:55
<-The 1947 plan for partition. But the Zionists had no intention of sticking with the U.N. plan for a two-state solution. They would take all of it and push the Palestinian people out. Not all Jews are Zionists. When respected lawyer Alan Dershowitz supported the two-state agreement, he was called a fascist!
← 1947. The original U.N. plan allowing partitioning of space for the Palestinians. Clearly, the prescribed borders were never observed.
Pro-Israel Christians warn God will judge America based on how America treats Israel: Lobbying and telling our government what to do about mid-east tensions. America has treated Israel well: Without billions in aid and our advanced weaponry systems they would not exist at all. Their only significant export is tourism.
Many Christians are enamored with Judaism and all things Jewish-emphasizing the Jewishness of Christ, even lecturing gentiles about the guilt they should bear for the Jews' misfortunes. It's as if Evangelicals wish they could be Jewish too. Why this strange affinity?
“I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee.” -Genesis 12:1,2.
Pastors are taking this one verse out of context telling their congregations it refers only to the Jews and Israel, a false doctrine being perpetrated on naive Christians called "Evangelical Zionism." Gullible churches are being told God is Jewish! But in truth, God is only sought, not bought.
"You do err, not knowing the scriptures." - Jesus
Pastor John Hagee, wearing a tallith, or Jewish prayer shawl, boasts the largest pro-Israel organization. The millions of dollars fleeced from donors is readily accepted by the modern Jewish State, making him a V.I.P., greasing and rubbing shoulders with high ranking Israeli leaders- even photo-shopping his image with them for ministry publications.
The Abrahamic covenant extends over quite a number of chapters, with details added, elaborated upon for Isaac and Jacob. But it is only Chapter 12:1-2 which is isolated by preachers: Get blessed! Their self-serving logic is if we grab on to the coat-tails of Jews we'll be in good with God! But Paul said a true Jew isn't circumcised in the flesh, but in the heart.
How curious. It seems everyone wants to be Jewish today.
Many Christians believe Israel is the epicenter of Armageddon, a war prophesied in the Revelation between Satan and God. They say it's another holocaust to force the Jews into accepting their messiah, "Y'shua." The tribulation means more suffering for the very people they claim are the Chosen. But the Lord never forced anyone to worship him, and more tribulation will not convince the Jews he is their Redeemer.
Following the "rapture," a word found nowhere in the Bible, Christ will return to destroy the enemies of the Jews, build a third temple and rule the world from the throne of a Zionist State in Jerusalem. It's called premillennial dispensationalism. Above is a simplified version of this familiar, unlikely scenario: A doctrine fiercely adhered to by ministers and congregations for well over a hundred years. It has never happened.
In September, 2017, a peculiar alignment of constellations and planets called "The Great Sign" was a wildly popular theory: This was the fulfillment of prophecy, the Woman giving birth in Revelation 12. Dire predictions were made for the 23rd of that month, such as the end of days, the rapture and the great tribulation for the Jewish State! On the 23rd, nothing happened. Nothing ever does.

When Jerusalem and the temple fell to the Romans in 70, A.D, as their fellow Jews were fighting to hold on to their nation at Masada, the Sanhedrin rabbis fled to the safety of Jamnia where they established a school, and have since dictated world Jewry. With no temple, how to ensure the survival of Judaism? Reinvent Judaism, by compiling the Talmud: An exhaustive rabbinical commentary considered more authoritative than even the law and prophets. They have thoroughly inculcated their own people with a deep hatred for Christ.
The following is by Jews for Justice in the Middle East
Published in Berkeley, CA, 2001
What really happened was that the Zionist movement, from the beginning, looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the indigenous Arab population so that Israel could be a wholly Jewish state, or as much as was possible. Land bought by the Jewish National Fund was held in the name of the Jewish people and could never be sold or even leased back to Arabs (a situation which continues to the present).
The Arab community, as it became increasingly aware of the Zionists’ intentions, strenuously opposed further Jewish immigration and land buying because it posed a real and imminent danger to the very existence of Arab society in Palestine. Because of this opposition, the entire Zionist project never could have been realized without the military backing of the British. The vast majority of the population of Palestine, by the way, had been Arabic since the seventh century A.D. (Over 1200 years).
In short, Zionism was based on a faulty, colonialist world view that the rights of the indigenous inhabitants didn’t matter. The Arabs’ opposition to Zionism wasn’t based on anti-Semitism but rather on a totally reasonable fear of the dispossession of their people.
The Balfour Declaration.
The founding document of the modern Jewish State is this brief letter sent from Britain's foreign Secretary Lord Balfour to Walter Baron Rothschild. However, the letter is conditional regarding the indigenous people of Palestine.
The Zionists were not religious and never claimed to have a mandate, like Joshua did from God, to take the land. Nor did they consult Yahweh, the God of their supposed ancestors. This had nothing to do with any covenant. It's a gross misunderstanding, that even though this was the place where the original covenant was promised, Palestine wasn't the final location intended by God!
|(2017-2067 ) Zionist Master Plan for next 50 years - Part 2 of 2
by The Believer
The First Zionist Congress. August 29 to 31, 1897. 208 delegates and 26 press correspondents attended the event, chaired by Theodor Herzl. According to Wikipedia, the publicity surrounding the conference inspired the antisemitic forgery "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion."
"Were I to sum up the Basel Congress in a word - which I shall guard against pronouncing publicly - it would be this: At Basel I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today l would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will perceive it." - Theodor Herzl, 1897.
Zionism aims at establishing for the Jewish people a publicly and legally assured home in Palestine. For the attainment of this purpose, the Congress considers the following means serviceable:
1. The promotion of the settlement of Jewish agriculturists, artisans, and tradesmen in Palestine.
2. The federation of all Jews into local or general groups, according to the laws of the various countries.
3. The strengthening of the Jewish feeling and consciousness.
4. Preparatory steps for the attainment of those governmental grants which are necessary to the achievement of the Zionist purpose.
Or "goy" is a Yiddish slur referring to non-Jews. It means you're not one of us. Gentiles at the time of Christ were considered inferior, unclean and to be avoided if at all possible. This sentiment was not shared by the Lord who freely associated with them. Goy is a derisive word, not often used in mixed company. But growing up I heard it used by my relatives, a sneer. Zionists regard the goy as their unsuspecting dupe.
(Протоколы сонских мудрецов)
"The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion" is the full title. The consensus is this book is a forgery. A forgery of what? A forgery is an imitation, a copy of something original. Do they mean faked? It is believed these are the secret minutes from the First Zionist Congress held in Basel Switzerland in 1897. The Protocols are prophetic, and since its publication in 1903, almost every one of them has come to pass, particularly here in America. Some are yet future. Just who were these "Learned Elders?" And what were these "meetings?"

Victor Marsden of the London Times who translated it from the Russian, said the work was slow and difficult because the material itself made him physically ill. Using his newspaper "The Dearborn Independent," Henry Ford exposed "The Protocols" to the American audience, saying "they fit in with what is going on." Whatever the source is, maybe from hell itself, if Ford was still alive today he would be astonished at his own words. They do fit in. The infernal writings are now available on the internet, out of reach from censors.
Words from "Dante's Inferno"
As we study Old Testament history it is cyclical. This cycle never changes and neither does God, His ways are the same for us today. After rejecting God and repeating the same mistakes, in 70 A.D. the Jews lost their nation, their temple, and were expelled from the land of Judea - just as Christ predicted when he wept over Jerusalem. He knew by this point it was too late, time had run out. "If only you had loved me..." The clock is ticking for us too.
The Georgia Guide-Stones. Georgia is known for its granite. A mysterious, anonymous man calling himself "Mr. Christian" commissioned this monument, a sort of Stonehenge engraved with atheistic Orwellian guidelines for a brave new world. It is written in over a dozen languages, intended to be there for survivors of a third world war or some apocalypse. It is the antithesis of the stone tables given to Moses. The quarry owner who provided the granite was sworn to secrecy, taking the identity of "Mr. Christian" to his grave. It is the ideology of U.N. Agenda 21.
In Matthew 24, the disciples remarked to Jesus, look at the stones of the temple, how great they are! The Lord was unimpressed, saying it wouldn't be there much longer. We have our own temples worshiping money. Monoliths like towers of Babel reaching to the heavens. That is until the elevators stop working from an attack such as never before happened on domestic soil. Almost three-thousand dead in one hour. In fact, a photographer at ground zero found in the rubble a page torn from the Bible. It was Chapter 11 of Genesis: The story of the Tower of Babel.
On 911 I was pastoring a church in the mid-west. Like Pearl Harbor, suddenly there was a sense of patriotism not seen in many decades. That Sunday, along with every other pastor across the land I faced a packed congregation, scared, looking for answers. People I had never met before jammed the service. God and country! Many brought little flags. But like a cycle in the Book of Judges, it lasted about two weeks.
If there was no God, it wouldn't matter. How quickly America has gone from the uttermost to the guttermost. There simply comes a point. The late pastor and evangelist David Wilkerson used a term, frightening when you understand: "Dread release." He meant we passed the point. Over the edge. No rapture, not all the revival and prayer in the world will help us now.
"America's Last Call." © 2000 by David Wilkerson (1931-2011).
"A majority of Americans don't care what their leaders do as long as there is a booming economy and prosperity. God is about to crush this abominable American mind-set. Soon the American dream will become the American nightmare. It will occur suddenly--without warning--and no one will be able to explain how or why it happened. Yet through it all, those who know God can be assured of constant protection and provision from His hands."
God forbid our Congress should pray and seek guidance as they did in the beginning of our republic. The solution is obvious, so patently simple. But nobody is willing to admit that if we simply humbled ourselves before the Creator our problems could be solved. We have not, so God lets go. Not even a dial tone from heaven.
"If my people which are called by my name, will humble themselves, seek my face and pray and turn around- then will I hear from heaven and forgive them and heal their land." -II Chronicles 7:14.
The year prayer was removed from our schools a United States president and leader of the free world was assassinated. We have not won a single war since WWII. We are more than twenty-trillion dollars in debt. Many Americans are addicted, hungry and homeless. Despite all our aid to other countries, the world despises us. Why? It is our IMAGE. We were once a light on a hill, but that light has become cheap neon. In 1989, for the first time a parental advisory was included on a music album.
One of the "Protocols" is the decay of the gentiles. We have seen this come to pass in recent decades: The unnatural obsession with sex; pornography; pedophilia; the degeneration of family values. Entertainment which never would have passed censors forty years ago. And the ghettoization of pop music, violent "gangsta rap:" Gutter music like sewage specifically marketed for white kids. According to the book, it is all designed to weaken the moral strength of the goyim.
Like the Soviets, big networks ABC, CBS and NBC feed us propaganda, in many cases outright lies. Fox News, the only exception is called "fascist!" Papers, particularly the New York Times are radically leftist, lacking in fact-checking leaving out anything that doesn't support their narrative. Time magazine used to be a quality brand. It is now a few cheap thin pages, poorly written articles mostly feminist rhetoric. We are shown only what they want us to see. Who are they?
It's time to push aside the lies and illusions. We are a nation engulfed in a civil war. We have failed to recognize it because the battlefield isn't clearly marked and because the enemy has hidden in the shadows. We have been deceived by the flickering lies of the T.V. Screen.
This war that tears at our country is not pitting brother against brother, or state against state or even Christians against the unbeliever. It has been launched by the ruling elite against America's citizens. It is class warfare, ans it is destroying our constitution and as a result, our very freedoms.
Give it a name if you must: It is fascism, the corporate control of our political system. The time has come to fight back! Indeed, it is well past time! Do not acknowledge the legitimacy of this government. Presidents, Congress and the courts have failed us.
Damn the Republicans! Damn the Democrats! We demand that they stand trial for treason. Impossible? Remember: There are more of us than there are of them- and that scares the piss out of them.

Babylon the Great.
“Equitable, sustainable, renewable, smart-growth.” These are words of death, but sound so positive!
For over a hundred years Bible scholars of prophesy and eschatology (the study of the end times) have satisfied themselves with how they have it all figured out. Earlier we mentioned premillennial dispensationalism. This school studies Daniel and Revelation, connecting the dots and clinging to a scenario which they never depart from. They are looking at the middle east- the wrong direction! We are the target. Because the United States is blessed with freedom, vast lands and natural resources, it's an invitation for psychopaths to meddle, manipulate and control you and your environment. It's called Agenda 21.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda.
The pontificating Pontiff, Pope Francis addresses a meeting of the United Nations Sustainable Development summit in 2015. A plan for human slavery due to become a reality by 2030. Strongly endorsed by Pope Francis, climate change will be the ruse to push people around. Whenever you hear the word sustainable, it's a clue: "Sustainable" means there is no Creator, the earth is fragile, and you are dispensable. In fact- we want you gone! Look at his words carefully: "Demands decisions." What he is really saying is, there is no discussion! The majority of Americans have no idea of this horrible plan. Hatched in the open, right before our eyes. Agenda 21 is almost identical, word for word to the Communist Manifesto.
• Dissolution of borders (End of sovereignty).
• Security Force (Jade-Helm).
• Disarmament of citizens (Gun-control).
• Abolish ownership of property (Eminent domain, opening natural habitats).
• Decrease population (Killing off through abortion and "vaccines").
• Resettlement of humans (Compact "fill zones." Respecting animals' "rights").
• Reeducation centers for the non-compliant.
"Pope Francis has urged participants at the World Economic Forum meeting to take bold steps to build a sustainable, human-centered future ... The Pope echoed the theme of the meeting, Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World, calling on participants to build inclusive, just and supportive societies."
California Gov. Jerry Brown told a recent Vatican climate conference that brainwashing is needed to get people to accept the idea of man-made climate change. At the highest circles, people still don't get it, Brown said. It's not just a light rinse that's required. We need a total, I might say, brainwashing ... Brown told the Vatican gathering that the path to change should include mass mobilization of the religious and theological sphere but also the prophetic sphere. (End Times News prophecy update)
A lie's best friend is a bit of truth.
Don't be fooled. They don't really care about saving the earth. It's about Congress imposing a "Green Tax" to bankrupt the middle class into paying for "climate change." A bottomless pit of spending, but an offer nobody can refuse. The skill in which altruism is used to disguise evil fools most everyone- especially coming from the Pope. Who can argue with the Pope? He's a nice man, right? This one is different. He was even permitted to address a joint session of Congress. What happened the separation of powers?
“Watch,” said the Lord- “And be not deceived.” This picture clearly looks photo-shopped.
o doubt many readers will disagree- firm believers in the delusion of a climate change crisis. That's fine. Nobody is disputing the problems of air pollution, toxic waste, pesticides, etc. The earth is a hearty, billion-year old mechanism existing here long before us. We haven't ruined the earth at all. There are natural cycles of cooling and warming throughout the ages. The earth is a conscious Being and cannot be harmed. If mankind were to suddenly vanish, the environment and atmosphere would easily clean itself up- by itself, in about two or three years. Scientists say, you don't get it because you're not a scientist. Really? Carbon dioxide is actually necessary for animals and vegetation to live. And the winters are more and more severe. In the 1970's scientists predicted a coming ice-age! Greenhouse gasses? In Genesis we are told the earth was originally just that- a greenhouse. A temperate zone.
There's still a chance, If, and that's a big If- we put down our toys and get busy. Turn back, change our ways and like the Israelites of old make a sincere appeal to to God. This is His covenant nation and the constitution is on our side.
Power should be as close to people as possible. The populist uprising had found its voice. But now we need the next revolution ... Article V of the Constitution allows state legislatures to initiate a Convention of States, at which amendments to the Constitution can be proposed without congressional initiative ... The Convention of States is now a real and growing movement, with supporters in all 50 states and a clear focus on constitutional amendments.
nd. Amendment. The colonists refused to lay down and surrender to tyranny. Disarmament is the first thing necessary to conquer a nation. The founders in their wisdom included the Second Amendment because of this very type of threat from within: A treasonous government. The enemy underestimates the intelligence of the American citizens. But make no mistake, there's a people seething with anger, preparing for civil war and training their own militias.
"We have become servants in the land of our fathers.” - Nehemiah
We've got trouble. Trouble, with a capital T and that rhymes with C and that stands for conspiracy. One that is very real. We better act now or it will soon be lost. Unless we stand up to the traitors in our Congress. Abolish this illegitimate, illegal government as the constitution tells us to do. Make the necessary sacrifices and refuse to trade our rights for false security. Suddenly, the rug gets pulled out.
What makes this so hard for people to understand is THEY ARE PATIENT. Fabianism is a long-term goal, however long it takes. The Fabian founders never expected to live to see it. They know it takes time to evolve, but they felt global socialism is well worth the wait. It depends on how quickly the populous catches on. Give them smart-phones, flat screens and lots of toys to occupy their attention and distract from what is really happening. "Bread and circuses."
I remember a different world growing up. America was safe, everyone got along, kids were healthy, nobody complained. People were happy. But now it is up to the next generation to decide how important is freedom, or wake up one day to find themselves slaves in the land our fathers died for.
To rule the world? The very idea is absurd! As if God would allow weak and selfish mortal beings to rule over His Earth. All the gold in the coffers of the Bilderbergs, the Rothschilds, the Zionists or the Rockefellers is not enough to buy the world! It is Abraham's Estate, for his posterity only: "The meek shall inherit the earth."
The wisest man who ever lived had this to say at the end of a long, rich and flamboyant life: "Here is the conclusion of the matter: Obey God and keep his commandments." - King Solomon
