Coup D’etat: Pentagon & Obama Declare Congress Ceremonial--Congressman Jones introduces bill that would subject Panetta & Obama to impeachment Paul Joseph Watson--Thursday, March 8, 2012 Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s testimony asserting that the United Nations and NATO have supreme authority over the actions of the United States military, words which effectively declare Congress a ceremonial relic, have prompted Congressman Walter Jones to introduce a resolution that re-affirms such behavior as an “impeachable high crime and misdemeanor” under the Constitution. Hear it for yourself--High Treason: Obama and Pentagon Declare Congress Invalid 2012!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faRjF3-WGVA&feature=youtu.be During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing yesterday, Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations and NATO, international bodies over which the American people have no influence. Panetta was asked by Senator Jeff Sessions, “We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO and too little time, in my opinion, worrying about the elected representatives of the United States. As you go forward, will you consult with the United States Congress?” The Defense Secretary responded “You know, our goal would be to seek international permission. And we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress.” Despite Sessions’ repeated efforts to get Panetta to acknowledge that the United States Congress is supreme to the likes of NATO and the UN, Panetta exalted the power of international bodies over the US legislative branch. “I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “I don’t believe it’s close to being correct. They provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.” Psa 94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? Psa 94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. Psa 94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God [is] the rock of my refuge. Psa 94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD our God shall cut them off. In an effort to re-affirm the fact that “the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime under article II, section 4 of the Constitution,” Republican Congressman Walter Jones has introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives. Under the terms of Jones’ resolution, both Panetta and Obama would be subject to impeachment for abusing their power and violating the Constitution in disregarding the authority
of Congress and placing a foreign power above its jurisdiction. Why isn’t this front page news? Despite the Pentagon’s efforts to claim that Panetta’s words were misinterpreted, the Obama administration itself has routinely cited the authority of the United Nations in relation to last year’s invasion of Libya, which was conducted without approval from Congress. In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, flippantly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.” Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.” In boldly asserting the authority of international powers over and above the legislative branch, Panetta and Obama are openly declaring that they no longer represent the American people and instead are water carriers for a global dictatorship that has usurped the sovereignty of the United States. http://www.infowars.com/coup-detat-pentagon-obama-declare-congress-ceremonial/print/ CBS News: Sheriff Joe's Investigation Into Obama's Forged Records - 3/2/12 Comment: Well it no wonder when you have an illegal alien in the Whitehouse that actions like those just mentioned are becoming more commonplace.

1:21:55 Obama Eligibility Cold Case Investigation (Full Press Conference)s
1:20:26 Sheriff Joe's Obama Investigation Press Conference, 3-1-2012s US Attorney General Eric Holder confirms government has right to murder U.S. citizens anywhere, anytime, without legal review by J. D. Heyes (NaturalNews) Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr., says the U.S. Constitution does not protect American citizens who may be plotting to kill other Americans via terrorism. In a speech at Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago this week, (http://www.washingtonpost.com) he said: "The American people can be -- and deserve to be -- assured that actions taken in their defense are consistent with their values and their laws." Holder said anyone deemed to pose an "imminent threat" to other Americans and who could not otherwise be reasonably captured could face the business end of a sniper or drone-launched missile, or any number of other killing techniques. Critical factors that would result in such a decision include a "relevant window of opportunity to act, the possible harm that missing the window would cause to civilians and the likelihood of heading off future disastrous attacks against the United States." Holder went onto say the president is not bound by the Constitution to delay assassinations of American citizens until some "theoretical end stage of planning -- when the precise time, place and manner of an attack become clear," The Washington Post reported.
"Given the nature of how terrorists act and where they tend to hide, it may not always be feasible to capture a U.S. citizen terrorist who presents an imminent threat of violent attack," Holder said. http://www.naturalnews.com/z035184_Eric_Holder_American_citizens_murder.html 15 Signs That America Has Become A Crazy Control Freak Nation Where Almost Everything Is Illegal In the film Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stated that "everything is illegal in Massachusetts". Well, the same could pretty much be said for the United States as a whole. Our lives are governed by millions of laws, rules and regulations and more are being piled on all the time. In fact, 40,000 new laws just went into effect in January. Every single new law restricts your freedom just a little bit more. The truth is that America has become a crazy control freak nation where virtually everything that we do is highly regulated. You have probably broken multiple laws today that you don't even know exist. We have all become criminals and lawbreakers because almost everything is illegal at this point. Our politicians are convinced that they are "making life better" by piling gigantic mountains of laws on to our backs, and law enforcement authorities are convinced that they are helping society by "cracking down on crime", but the reality is that our liberties and our freedoms are being strangled by all of this government oppression. Yes, every society needs laws. But the laws should be short enough and simple enough that everybody can read them and understand them. In America today, there is no possible way that any of us could ever read all of the laws that apply to us. The following are 15 signs that America has become a crazy control freak nation where almost everything is illegal.... #1 One California town is actually considering making it illegal to smoke in your own backyard. #2 In Louisiana, a church was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a permit to do so. #3 In the United States it is illegal to operate a train that does not have an "F" painted on the front. Apparently without that "F" we all might not know where the front of the train is. #4 In many U.S. states is it now illegal to collect rain that falls from the sky on to your own property. #5 In America today it is illegal to milk your cow and sell the milk to your neighbor. If you do this, there is a good chance that federal agents will raid your home at the crack of dawn. #6 In Washington D.C. it is illegal not to recycle cat litter. #7 It is illegal to give a tour of the monuments in Washington D.C. without a license. #8 In the United States it is illegal to sell natural cures for cancer - even if they work. #9 In the state of Massachusetts it is illegal to deface a milk carton. #10 If you register with a false name on MySpace or Facebook you could potentially "spend five years in federal prison". #11 In Hazelwood, Missouri it is illegal for little girls to sell girl scout cookies in the front yards of their own homes. #12 All over the United States lemonade stands run by children are being shut down because they do not have the proper permits. #13 In Florida, it is illegal to bring a plastic butter knife to school. #14 In San Juan Capistrano, California it is illegal to hold a home Bible study without a "conditional use permit". #15 In the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania it is illegal to make even a single dollar from a blog unless you buy a $300 business license. Sadly, this list of crazy laws and ridiculous regulations could be thousands long. We are a nation run by a bunch of control freaks that do not care about our liberties and our freedoms.

In 1982, President Ronald Reagan formed The President's Private Sector Survey On Cost Control, an independent panel of 160 of the country's top business leaders headed by Peter Grace and known as The Grace Commission, in order to find ways to cut federal spending. In their report submitted to President Reagan on January 15, 1984, this blue-ribbon panel stated the following, quoting directly from page 12 of their report: "Resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people were aware that one-third of all their taxes are consumed by waste and inefficiency in the Federal government as previously identified. With two-thirds of everyone's personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt ... in other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from the government." More Facts Regarding the IRS: 1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 941148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.) 2. The IMF is an Agency of the United Nations. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816) 3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg. 654) 4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288) What's the big deal about the Fed? For starters, it's not (contrary to popular belief) a part of the government. It's privately owned...which means the United States does not control its own money supply. The Fed was created around the same time that the US adopted such charming practices as taxing the income of working people and conscripting its citizens against their will to fight and die in overseas wars. Who really rules America? It's not who you think.
Watch “Money as Debt”: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2550156453790090544 Pro 11:1 A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. Pro 16:11 A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are his work. Pro 20:23 Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good. One of the last things John F. Kennedy did before he was assassinated was declare his intention to reform the central banking system of the United States. No connection between these two events? Congressman Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee from 1927-33, opposed the Federal Reserve System. There were three reported attempts on his life before he finally died of "heart failure." Here's what he said about the Federal Reserve from the floor of Congress: "Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the mal-administration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it."

A Study On Christian Pacifism Posted by: Gabe Suarez
THE HISTORICAL VIEW As we whistle through the first decade of the New millennium, we find ourselves embroiled in conflict with a new enemy. The previous century saw conflicts between city-states, between small states, large nations and even between regions. We saw a “cold war” between political ideologies. This new war is much more than that and before the final shot is fired, we will see its zones of conflict will span and traverse all boundaries whether political, social, or of faiths. Truly it is a struggle of faiths. Colored otherwise as it may be by politician and media pundit alike, it is clear that this is a struggle between Islam (the so-called religion of peace), and the Christianbased nations of the Western world, with its focal point being, as it has been for decades, the tiny nation of Israel. So it is with this backdrop that I want to examine the Christian Doctrine of Pacifism. I and may of my colleagues do not believe such a doctrine is biblically correct. My objective then is to find whence it came into acceptance, who brought it, and possibly determine why. Knowing this we can make rational decisions about whether such a perspective truly is of God…or not. I want to point out that I am a born again Christian. Yet, although I prefer living in peace, I am no pacifist. When I became a Christian, I was prepared to sell all my guns and knives and adopt whatever life the Lord put in front of me. But the spirit did not lead me to cast away my sword, only to put it in its correct place…specifically as a tool of justice. I’ve killed men in combat and do not regret it for a moment. Moreover, if God puts me in the place of battle again facing men of evil, I will do so again without hesitation. I firmly believe that Jesus does not teach pacifism, but rather He teaches us to seek peace. There is a difference there. True Pacifism (peace at any price) and Seeking Peace (but not at any price) are separated by a wide gulf. As much as depends on us, we are to try to live in peace with all men. But often, such things do not depend on us. We are entrusted with the world by God. Although we are to have a light touch on the things of this world while earnestly seeking Him, we are not called to ignore the world with an excessively lofty spiritual view of things. Rather good stewardship demands that we act well with those things (people) entrusted to us…just like the parable of the talents. We are to provide for those entrusted to us (family, church, etc.). To deny this cross is to deny the faith and be worse than an unbeliever. Provision includes food, shelter, spiritual guidance AND safety. Some may say that that is why they pay taxes…so the government will protect them. Sorry, that won’t do it completely. Just as we would not expect the United States Government (and would in fact resist it if it tried) to provide us with food, housing, and religious teaching, neither can we abrogate the right and duty to provide for our own protection, and that of our families. To cause others to deny their cross this way (via incorrect teachings) is even worse, and the future of such are filled with waiting millstones. We are all magistrates of God’s word and kingdom. Just as we would not allow unchallenged teachings of blasphemy and immorality to our churches and children, so must we resist (in love) unsound teachings. And similarly must we resist violent crimes, and terrorism as much as we are physically (and spiritually) able. Where the spoken word of prayer may be enough in one case, the threat of violent physical action via the readiness of the sword (or in our day the availability of the loaded pistol) will suffice. We can make a good case, based on scripture, that peace at any price (Pacifism) is not sound doctrine. We did that very thing in this essay titled The Foolishness Of Christian Pacifism.
I will seek to find the first instances of pacifism in the writings of early church leaders. We will examine the social issues of the day as well as the dynamics of the Christian in society to see why such a stance may have been taken. First I want to be clear about the definitions. A pacifist is a person who refuses to act in violence in any way, for any reason, or at any time. Such a person will die, and watch others die, before ever resorting to violent means to save himself or others. In contrast, one can love peace and seek it, but not at any price. A man can desire peace with a gun in his hand. One thing I immediately noticed in my research was that the arguments for pacifism revolved around the propriety of Christian service in the Roman military. Nothing was written until much later about the physical resistance of brigands by individual citizens. Since almost every sin was elaborated on in the early writings, some that we had never even heard of, it is curious that individual violence in self-defense was conspicuously missing….perhaps in their minds one had nothing to do with the other. Perhaps it was due to the oath required for military service. THE ROMAN MILITARY OATH The First century world of the Christian church was ruled by the iron fist of Rome. Although the Gospel was being spread daily, paganism and idolatry were still very prevalent. In the roman army, they were the order of the day. Whether Christian or pagan, inductees into the Roman Army were required to swear the oath of the Roman military. The roman soldier had to pledge allegiance in a sacred oath, known as the Sacramentum. This pledge included the idea that a position in the Roman military was of sacred importance. The oath was recited on enlistment, on the third of January, and on the anniversary of the current emperor's reign. One of the main points of the oath is to whom the soldier pledged his loyalty: in the Republic, the commander of the unit received the pledge; while in the Empire, the emperor received the pledge. This change was enacted under Augustus, who believed the oath could be used by generals to place the power of the emperor over the soldiers. Here is one version of it: “I swear by Jupiter Optimus Maximus and by any other god I may hold in my heart to be holy, and by the majesty of the Imperator and by the Senate of Rome, which next to our gods should be loved and worshipped by the human race. I, swear to perform with enthusiasm whatever the Imperator and my Legion commander should command, follow all laws set forth by the Senate of Rome, never to desert, and not to shrink from death on behalf of the Roman State.” I can see several points that any Christian, specially a 1st Century one, would find objectionable. Add to this the fact that Caesar used the army to persecute and kill Christians, often sacrificing them to their gods, and you get a picture where it becomes untenable for a true Christian to be involved with them. Compare this to a modern illustration: A Christian being conscripted into the German SS during WW2, knowing they must deny God and serve Hitler, as well as knowing they will be ordered to commit atrocities. What kind of Christian would go along with that? A similar set of circumstances was taking place for the early Christians. One of the early apologists was Justin of Caesarea, often referred to as Justin Martyr. He wrote in 140 A.D. – 160 A.D. His assertion was that the prophesies in Isaiah 2:4 with regards to the New Kingdom, were already here.
Isaiah 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Isaiah was prophesying about the New Kingdom, not the kingdom still on earth. As we know, to this day, nations are still killing each other and the Lord has not yet come to institute His reign. Much less in Justin’s day. Great Christian apologist or not, he a man, and was wrong with his interpretation and timing. Apologists who followed Justin Martyr, such as Irenaeus, Clement, Origin, and others prior to the Council of Nicea also referred to the Isaiah argument as their biblical justification against military service in the Roman army for Christians. Tertullian was another apologist who wrote between 160 – 220 A.D. in North Africa. He noted, “There is no agreement between the Divine (sacrament) and the human sacrament (Roman Oath)”. Furthermore, Tertullian writes, “Shall it be held awful to make an occupation of the sword, when the Lord preaches that he who uses the sword shall perish by the sword?” Tertullian makes quite a leap here. First of all, Christ did not eschew the sword. Rather he taught the sword in its proper place, and that those whose only resource was violence would inevitably perish by it. In Luke 22:36-38 Christ admonishes us to be prepared to provide for our own security via the sword. Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Luke 22:37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. Luke 22:38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough. We can argue about the meaning of this Scripture, but the fact remains that Christ told His men to arm themselves. When they returned to him with two swords, he did not correct them as He did at other times when they mistook His teachings, but rather told them that two was enough. The sword was meant for physical protection against evil men in a fallen world. It was not to be relied upon exclusively, but rather kept in its proper place and for its proper use. John 18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. John 18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? Luke 22:50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. Luke 22:51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
Moreover, Christ did in fact tell Peter the Swordsman that those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword; but in what context? Matthew 26:51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. Matthew 26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? Matthew 26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Consider the context. Christ was being arrested and surrounded. It was His mission to give himself up and be sacrificed. If His men stood and fought at that moment they would have been killed. Those who took up the sword at that particular time would have certainly been killed by the swords of the enemy. Christ would not tell His men to arm themselves and later contradict His teachings. Cyprian, a disciple of Tertullian wrote, “ It is hypocrisy to proclaim a hero and valiant, the person who will destroy and devastate the life and property of innocent people in organized warfare when if the same occurs in peacetime, it is considered a crime”. The key words are “innocent people”, as distinguished from evil aggressors. One can hardly disagree with such a point. The last Pre-Constantine apologist was Lactantius. He wrote a mammoth treatise named the Divine Institutes on or about 300 A.D. This is what he said, “ For when God forbids us to kill, He not only prohibits us from open violence, which is not even allowed by public laws, but He warns us against the commission of those things which are esteemed lawful among men”. Although, like the others, Lactantius was no doubt well-meaning, his grasp of the scriptures was incomplete. God does not forbid killing (in fact He often requires it), but rather He forbids murder. The gulf between the two is wide and deep. And although defining and describing what each one is would be easy, it would take space which this essay does not have in surplus. In short killing is an act that can be justified or condemned based in the intent of the actor. Killing may be justified, murder is never justified. Exodus 20:13 You shall not murder. Without the biblical prohibition against killing, Lactantius’ argument falls apart. So we can summarize that Pre-Constantine apologists had objections to Christians serving in the Roman Army in particular, and because of that objected to all martial pursuits. They based their objections because of the demands of the Roman military oath that went in conflict with God’s law, and because of the military activity in the persecution of Christians in particular. Moreover, they based their “swords into plowshares” argument on the belief that the New Kingdom spoken about by Isaiah was here and now, and not in the future. Likewise a confused understanding of the difference between killing and murder supported a pacifistic view. Ambrose did not distinguish between a soldier in war or a citizen in peace. In 375 A.D. he wrote, “And that courage which either protects the homeland against barbarians in war, or defends the weak at home, or saves one’s comrades from brigands, is full of righteousness”.
Ambrose is noteworthy in that he is the first of the early writer I am aware of that lists “soldier defending nation, policeman defending the weak, and armed citizen defending against brigands” in the same context of courage and righteousness. Remember this scripture - 1Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. I believe that the early apologists advocated pacifism because of the odious requirements of Roman military service. And that once those specific requirements were no longer an issue, military service was not only acceptable, but desirable. Further, that the use of arms in personal defense was common in those days and differentiated from military service as always acceptable even when military service might not be. Today, there are some who still believe that to be a Christian is to be a pacifist. I will submit that such a doctrine is not only ungodly, but may be immoral and sinful in many cases, if not simply cowardly. Some who advocate pacifism have, like the servant in the parable, buried their talent in the dirt rather than put it to good use. They believe that what takes place here on earth is not “of no consequence”. To the contrary, we are entrusted with this world and must show we have used our “talents” well. Pacifism is immoral because the pacifist enjoys the security provided by the warrior without paying for it either physically or spiritually. He won’t die to protect his children, but expects you to do so in his stead. In essence, the pacifist is a coward hiding his cowardice in spiritualism. It is clear that the argument over pacifism in the early church was predicated on the excesses of the roman military service, and the Military Oath in particular. Once such requirements ended, the pacifistic doctrine changed. I submit that there is no scripture in The Old Testament or New Testament that advocates a “peace at any price” teaching, and that teaching such a doctrine is not only selfish to the utmost, but as mentioned in Timothy – denies the faith. As I concluded this study, I believe fully that the Gospel has never taught us to be pacifists, but rather that we are to, as much as we are able, to seek peace. But the context is clear. Not at any price. This is reality, and to ignore it is both naïve and irresponsible, and smacks of an excessively lofty and spiritual view of things. There is a point where we must pick up the sword, so that we can continue to live in peace. Clearly, to have peace, one must often be willing to fight, to kill, and to die for it. To have peace, we must often enforce such a peace with the readiness to do sudden battle anywhere, anytime, and with complete disregard for our own safety. Whether in an airplane facing terrorists or in a dark parking lot facing muggers, it is the holy duty (and the cross put in front of us) of any able-bodied Christian man of God to stand strong with courage and righteousness and execute wrath on those who would do us evil. Christ does not want a bunch of glad-handing, always-submissive, no-load-nice-at-allcosts pumpkin boys to lead His church. Let's gather around our Lord as the Gadites gathered around David!! Exd 15:2 The LORD [is] my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he [is] my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. Exd 15:3 The LORD [is] a man of war: the LORD [is] his name.
Jer 5:1 ¶ Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be [any] that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. Jer 5:2 And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely. Jer 5:3 O LORD, [are] not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, [but] they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. Jer 5:4 ¶ Therefore I said, Surely these [are] poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, [nor] the judgment of their God. Jer 5:5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, [and] the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, [and] burst the bonds. Jer 5:6 Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, [and] a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, [and] their backslidings are increased. Jer 5:7 ¶ How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by [them that are] no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses. Jer 5:8 They were [as] fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour's wife. Jer 5:9 Shall I not visit for these [things]? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? Jer 5:10 ¶ Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they [are] not the LORD'S. Jer 5:11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD. Jer 5:12 They have belied the LORD, and said, [It is] not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: Jer 5:13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word [is] not in them: thus shall it be done unto them. Jer 5:14 ¶ Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. Jer 5:15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, (Like the 465,000 NATO troops in the US under treaty) O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it [is] a mighty nation, it [is] an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. Jer 5:16 Their quiver [is] as an open sepulchre, they [are] all mighty men. Jer 5:17 And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, [which] thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword… Jer 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: Jer 5:22 Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence… Jer 5:23 But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. Jer 5:24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
Jer 5:25 Your iniquities have turned away these [things], and your sins have withholden good [things] from you. Jer 5:26 For among my people are found wicked [men]: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. Jer 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, so [are] their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. Jer 5:28 They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Jer 5:29 Shall I not visit for these [things]? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? Jer 5:30 ¶ A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love [to have it] so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Suggested Therapeutic Dosing Guidelines 1tsp.-1tbsp. for every 30 lbs. of bodyweight per day, if you have been exposed or if you have a virulent virus/Pandemic. The 1 tbsp. dosage would be used for life threatening situations. This dosage should be equally broken up and taken in 3 hour intervals. Stay at home and avoid contact with the populace till the outbreak passes. If taking the M.S.P. drink at least 8, eight ounce glasses of purified water per day. M.S.P. can be used topically with DMSO over an infectious site. Because the 5000 PPM M.S.P. is only available in 4 ounce bottles it would be wise to keep at least a few bottles for each adult family member and 1-2 for each child in your household.

Scientific/Medical Studies: www.xpressnet.com/bhealthy/bhealthy.html#HIVLET Dr. Johnson's Comment: Invive Mild Silver Protein is made under Pharmaceutical GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) with double check off lists. The silver that is used is the finest available and is the same silver used in the 1938 Edition, 12th Volume of the British Encyclopedia of Medical Practice: Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. The Compounds used to make this silver are identical as the silver compounds used in burn wards across America. As a result they can achieve uniform particle size of .3 microns which is something most companies have a very hard time doing. Now this particle size is much smaller than a bacterium which are approximately .5 microns. Therefore Invive silver particles can go wherever the bacteria are "because" the Invive particles are .3 microns which is smaller than a bacteria. Today's modern antibiotics kill over 100,000 Americans per year, and cause horrendous liver and kidney damage, failure, and death, whereas the Invive Mild Silver Protein formulation has never caused one death.

The Top 5 Priorities of Emergency Preparedness - #1 MAKE A PLAN Sometimes it is hard to know where to start with your emergency supplies. If you aren’t careful, you can end up spending a lot of time, energy and money on items and in areas that really won’t help you and your family be prepared. Because there is a lot of information to cover in how set your “Emergency Preparedness Priorities”, I am going to break this out into a few different categories, over a period of a few days. I will also be posting this instructional series on our blog at www.thereadystore.com. Here are the main categories I want to discuss: 1. Make a Plan. Review, Rotate, Replace. Make adjustments for family size, age and local community needs. Consider evacuation, communication and staying put. 2. Gather Grab and Go Supplies. 72 hour kits, MREs, food bars, water pouches, water purification, first-aid, storage. 3. Gather Shelter in Place Supplies. Radios, flashlights, first-aid, sanitation & hygiene, warmth & shelter, storage. 4. Clean Water. Water storage, barrels, filters, storage. 5. Shelf Stable Food. Items in pantry, short term and long term food storage items. Christian Believer’s Swine/Bird Flu Remedy http://www.handihelpers.info/page2.php This website will be gone after April 30th.
White Pine Needles For the Immune System
Researchers in Maine have discovered that pine needles are about 3% by weight shikimic acid. They also have a very high vitamin C content. No one is suggesting pine needle tea as a substantial source of shikimic acid for the flu. But, if you get the flu you may want to indulge in a little pine needle tea. Excellent Emergency Medical Supplies http://store.doomandbloom.net/ Doomsday Bunkers Shows: One Man Is Helping People Prepare For Armageddon The impact of the tsunami in Japan a year ago was also felt in the United States, prompting an estimated 1,000 percent increase in the sale of "doomsday bunkers" -- secret, underground safe houses built to deliver families through Armageddon-like catastrophes. And in the wake of the deadly tornadoes that ripped through Indiana and Kentucky last week, interest in impenetrable underground safety zones has once again been piqued. So what exactly goes into the creation of a secret, secure bunker? Dallasbased Deep Earth Bunker owner Scott Bales and his engineers have teamed with the Discovery Channel to show exactly what goes into making these technologically advanced, secretive hideouts. Each episode of "Doomsday Bunkers" is a start-to-finish guide in the building of a bunker, and shows how each of the safety rooms is tailor-made to suit the owner’s needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'll try to be concise! I am privileged to receive your Bible studies and current events. Thank you for this ministry...............I practiced midwifery in a rather hostile area for 20 years with homeschooling, Mennonite and Amish, and sometimes New Age type clientele…..Now to the point: in my early 40's (I am now 58) I acquired whooping cough. I was literally on the floor coughing trying to dispel the membrane in my throat. I inadvertently passed the virus to three other families. I had a medical doctor friend who
practiced alternative medicine, I went to see her and she told me a grand secret for which I thank the Lord and intend to implement when our nation is hit with an epidemic in hopes that it will be effective as it is available in quantity. She told me that pure gum spirit arabic turpentine is from a the pine tree. And that it has the potential to kill viruses especially whooping cough and diphtheria. (more uses later) She advised me to take a sugar cube and saturate it with the turpentine and consume it.(more saturated for adults & less for children) I did this and the whooping cough was reduced by at least 75% within a few hours! The doctor also told me that she herself had taken it for a month to be sure that there were no side effects. She had patients with parasites use the turpentine-saturated cubes daily along with only high complex carb diet to kill parasites!(parasites rush to the sugar and die from the turpentine) She also said that five drops daily could be used as a type of "chemo" for cancer patients...........I was convinced by my own case. I learned from another source how to make a salve for the chest with turpentine and two other ingredients which I used for myself and made for families through the years. (Whooping cough does not normally kill but can be fatal for babies who succumb to exhaustion, so we used the salve to allow them to sleep peacefully through the night!)..............I was once called to a home where there were eight children, two of whom had cases of "hoof and mouth". I somewhat pinned down my victims and swabbed all mouths with turpentine. The virus was immediately cleared up in the two who had it actively and did not spread to the other family members!!! I had them discard toothbrushes and keep new ones disinfected soaked in peroxide and water.................In another case, I was called to an Amish home and the child had a case of something I hadn't seen before but suspected it was staph. Because the Amish are slow to seek medical care, I felt compelled to treat it until the child could be seen by a medical doctor and be prescribed an antibiotic. I treated the area by patting it down carefully with turpentine. By the next day, it had considerably cleared but they did go to the doctor who confirmed it was staph and treated it.................In the event that I am called upon in a case of a widespread epidemic, I have on hand turpentine, droppers, gel caps, and sugar cubes. It is something that I can afford and would prayerfully administer with the expectation that it will have an impact on the virus. I would also make sure that the bowels were kept open and perhaps suggest garlic tea due to its systemic effects (also a method used by above mentioned doctor) Thank you for all of your research and time that you invest in preparing and recording. I plan to have colloidal silver as well. Nancy I did an internet search for: medicinal pure gum spirit arabic turpentine buy & found: http://naturalpigments.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=520-1TRPT16 Product Details: 16 fl oz can (473 ml) Natural Pigments Spirits of Gum Turpentine is obtained by the distillation of sap tapped from living pine trees. Our pure spirits of gum turpentine is steam-distilled from Pinus elliottii trees in Brazil, a species often used as the benchmark by which others are judged. It contains over 90% pinene, almost half of which is beta-pinene, and virtually no high-boiling constituents. It does not contain impurities found in industrial grades of turpentine. & also: http://www.medchoiceny.com/MEDICATIONS-OTC/27407600/product.aspx http://www.drugsdepot.com/viewitem.php/drugsdepot/pd220588/TURPENTINE_LIQUID_P URE_GUM_SPIRITS_4OZ Also found a related product here: http://www.thelatinproducts.com/dr-j-h-mcleans-volcanic-oil-4-oz/ From: Nancy C Subject: RE: From an alternative midwife - please read! Date: Monday, February 20, 2012, 7:41 AM I dread to tell you the old fashioned recipe that I was given when I myself was on the floor from
coughing with whooping cough. In desperation, I made a batch and used it with excellent results. Later, parents with exhausted hacking babies used it successfully at night for relief for the entire family especially the baby. So sorry for the outrageous ingredients, but here goes: Salve: 3 oz melted lard 2 oz gum spirited turpentine 1 oz #1 kerosene Camphor (4 blocks) I could never find camphor except in a chest rub which I added to the mix. This is a flammable solution which is carefully warmed. A dry cloth is soaked and applied to the chest. The fumes are a complete relief to the gagging choking exhausted whooping cough victim, I regret to say!!!! Also: Mustard plasters: 1 T. dry mustard to 3 t. flour with enough water to make a paste. The paste is spread between two soft cloths. Non-petroleum Vaseline (or Crisco in the event of nothing else) should be applied to the chest as a barrier against "burning" and the very young and very old need to be monitored closely, and the cloths with paste in between is placed atop the Vaseline barrier for 1/2 hr to 1 hour. Toxins are drawn out of the chest very effectively. The cloths are discarded as they contain toxins.............Jethro Kloss. I have used the muster plaster very effectively. With it, I wrapped feet in towels soaked in apple cider vinegar to pull heat/fever from the brain when the person had a high fever..........and I often brought a pot of water to boil, let the boiling action stop, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil and make a tent from a towel or sheet and use the steam to loosen the chest.............the mustard plaster and steam did not work for the whooping cough however............... Thanks. That's all. Blessings. Nancy From: Nancy C Subject: RE: From an alternative midwife - please read! To: "Scott Johnson" Date: Sunday, February 19, 2012, 8:39 AM Hi, Scott. -I have at times worked with people who were close to death with lung ailments. I believe that I learned from either Dr. Shultz or from Jethro Kloss in Back to Eden to do the following: I gave them a T. of lobelia each 15 minutes. Within an hour or two (sometimes when they attempted to eat), they would wretch in a way that their lungs cleared out of copious amounts of mucus and breathing was greatly improved. In one case, a mobile chest xray unit arrived shortly afterwards to find the hospice patient's lungs "clear"......................... -I also had to be very protective of newborns that nothing was in their lungs especially blood. Blood in the newborn's lungs is such a medium for bacteria that pneumonia was sure to result. I used a drop or two of cayenne tincture on baby's tongue. Within a few minutes, the baby would seem to gag and I would percuss the back gently with baby over my lap sometimes with steam if it was warranted. The baby would expel fluid, mucus, and blood from lungs. I would then be able to examine the matter and determine the course which usually entailed no further action. (A little gagging is merciful compared to a hospital visit and vaccines, etc.).......................... -Another time, I had an Amish woman who was misdiagnosed by the system. I was very leary of their diagnosis and asked her to come stay with me. Something dreadful began to take place right in front of my eyes and she began to die. I took a bottle of cayenne tincture and gave her a few squirts in her mouth, administered oxygen, and she was transported. The result was a lengthy operation for an abscess that had developed into her brain due to sinus infection since childhood which had eaten a hole in the bone of her forehead. She barely survived but she clearly recalls the feeling of returning from death when the tincture entered her mouth/system!......(this tincture can be a lifesaver in stroke or heart attack victims and cayenne can stop bleeding taken internally or directly in a wound)................ -onward we go to whatever. I am hoping to be of some service to the Lord in either training
midwives or providing some type of care for the "whatever, whenever". Blessings to you and Taylor. Nancy Medicinal uses Turpentine has been used medically since ancient times. Applied externally to the affected areas, turpentine is a highly effective treatment for lice. Turpentine can be mixed with animal fat as a primitive chest rub for nasal and throat complaints. Some modern chest rubs still contain some turpentine (e.g., Vick's Vaporub). Internal administration of turpentine is no longer common today, though it was once the preferred means of treating intestinal parasites. Turpentine was a common medicine among seamen during the Age of Discovery, and one of several products carried aboard Ferdinand Magellan's fleet in his first circumnavigation of the globe.
