The New Teddy Kennedy GIVE Act working its' way through Congress...


At first glance, the bill appears to be about voluntary service. However, there is more to this bill when you dig deeper:


- "Service" Indoctrination of underage children in public school:

(B) service-learning is a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.


SEC. 122. NATIONAL SERVICE PROGRAMS ELIGIBLE FOR PROGRAM ASSISTANCE:


‘(a) Required National Service Corps- The recipient of a grant under section 121(a) and each Federal agency operating or supporting a national service program under section 121(b) shall, directly or through grants or subgrants to other entities, carry out or support the following national service corps, as full- or part-time corps, including during the summer months, to address unmet educational, health, veteran, or environmental needs.


Can someone say Obama Youth???


Also, I'm told this bill will cost $100,000,000- I THOUGHT WE WERE HAVING AN ECONOMIC CRISIS, MR. PRESIDENT?

Who is Steven Rattner- the Auto Industry "Advisor"

Pictured: The Ratt


From Wikipedia:



The Wall Street Journal announced that Rattner would be named to the Treasury Department as auto industry adviser on February 23, 2009. The New York Times reported that he would be lead advisor and leader of the industry group for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

BruceDCollins.com asks, who is this Auto Expert?


Answer: He is a banker and came from Morgan Stanley. Odd that a banker can advise on Auto related issues, isn't it?


Oh yeah....one more thing... He's a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. http://www.cfr.org/content/about/annual_report/ar_2003/commboard.pdf (Note Advisory Committee at the bottom).

Hey, I see that Fareed Zakaria is on the same committee as Rattner. The media can't be mixed up in this, can they?

Why do I think the CFR is all for the destruction of the sovereignty of the United States? How about their own report: http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachments/NorthAmerica_TF_final.pdf


From this report above (You can read it above from THEIR website):

To that end, the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of
a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and
opportunity. We propose a community based on the principle affirmed
in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that ‘‘our
security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.’’
Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer
security perimeter within which the movement of people, products,
and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe.
Its goal will be to guarantee
a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America.




That is evidence, from THEIR website, what the CFR is all about. If that is not conclusive enough evidence, I don't know what would be. The North American Union, like the European Union, is coming... without asking the American people what they want.

The Atlantic Confirms What Bruce Has Been Saying: The Banksters Own The United States...

Excerpt:
The crash has laid bare many unpleasant truths about the United States. One of the most alarming, says a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, is that the finance industry has effectively captured our government—a state of affairs that more typically describes emerging markets, and is at the center of many emerging-market crises. If the IMF’s staff could speak freely about the U.S., it would tell us what it tells all countries in this situation: recovery will fail unless we break the financial oligarchy that is blocking essential reform. And if we are to prevent a true depression, we’re running out of time.

Bilderbergers Meeting In Greece This Year

Bilderberg will return to its 1993 crime scene when it attempts to meet secretly in Vouliagmeni, Greece, May 14-17. Bilderberg will return to the grounds of Nafsika Astir Palace hotels in Vouliagmeni, 20 miles outside Athens, and meet behind guards at the Westin Nafsika.

High on the Bilderberg agenda will be how to manipulate the global economic crisis for their selfish interests. They will pressure both European and North American nations to pull back from “protectionism” in the later meetings of heads of state. Since the international financiers and high officials of government see themselves as “citizens of the world” and scorn “nationalism,” their only loyalty is bankrolls, not their country. They love free trade, essential for world government.

Thus, they are determined that the United States and other nations refuse to impose tariffs that would equalize competition at the water’s edge. They want to continue shipping U.S. manufacturing jobs overseas where cheap labor may be exploited. They want to continue importing products made by slave labor in China and Africa, underselling domestic products.

Bilderberg, a secret elitist group that meets each spring at posh resorts protected by armed guards, uniformed police, sometimes the host nation’s military plus a brigade of private, plain-clothes guards, tries hard to keep its deliberations secret. But, with help from the European media and with inside sources, their mischief is always revealed to this newspaper.

Bilderberg has a dutiful son in President Barack Obama who will be told to press ahead with the North American Union, which is to be expanded throughout the Western Hemisphere into an “American Union” similar to the European Union. Ultimately, with creation of an “Asian-Pacific Union,” the world is to be divided into three great regions for the administrative convenience of a global government of the UN. Following orders, Obama has a platoon of Bilderberg luminaries in his administration.

Joblessness Growing...

Unemployment rolls grow for the 10th week in a row; glimmers of economic hope fade a bit

Jeannine Aversa and Christopher S. Rugaber, AP Economics Writers
Thursday March 26, 2009, 5:49 pm EDT


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hopes that the economy may be poised for a recovery got a splash of reality Thursday: The unemployment rolls are still getting bigger as the recession maintains its grip.

For the 10th week in a row, the number of people receiving jobless benefits grew. It now stands at nearly 5.6 million, the government said -- an indication that the labor market is still grim.

New claims for unemployment benefits rose again as well, to a seasonally adjusted 652,000, up from 644,000 the week before. The government also said the economy shrank at a 6.3 percent annual clip in the fourth quarter, slightly faster than its previous estimate.

"There is no sign of recovery here, and claims are usually one of the very first numbers to turn," Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, wrote in a client note.

Geithner 'open' to China proposal

Geithner, at the Council on Foreign Relations, said the U.S. is "open" to a headline-grabbing proposal by the governor of the China's central bank, which was widely reported as being a call for a new global currency to replace the dollar, but which Geithner described as more modest and "evolutionary."

"I haven’t read the governor’s proposal. He’s a very thoughtful, very careful distinguished central banker. I generally find him sensible on every issue," Geithner said, saying that however his interpretation of the proposal was to increase the use of International Monetary Fund's special drawing rights -- shares in the body held by its members -- not creating a new currency in the literal sense.

"We’re actually quite open to that suggestion – you should see it as rather evolutionary rather building on the current architecture rather than moving us to global monetary union," he said.

Source: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0309/Geithner_open_to_China_proposal.html?showall

This is double talk- evolutionary just means moving in segments toward a one world currency. Sort of like the kooky belief that a puddle of slime became a man through 'evolutionary' means.

A 1987 Bill Moyers Documentary, The Secret Government

How Was Bill Cooper Able To Predict 9/11 In June 2001?



In addition to Alex Jones, William Cooper also predicted 9/11 on his broadcast in June of 2001.

Before we dismiss Mr. Cooper as 'nuts', here is a little bit about him:

William served with the Strategic Air Command, United States Air Force. He held a secret clearance working on B-52 bombers, KC-135 refueling aircraft, and Minuteman missiles. William received his Honorable Discharge from the United States Air Force in 1965.

William joined the United States Navy fulfilling a dream previously frustrated by chronic motion sickness. He served aboard the submarine USS Tiru (SS-416), USS Tombigbee (AOG-11), Naval Support Activity Danang RVN, Naval Security and Intelligence Camp Carter RVN, Danang Harbor Patrol RVN, Dong Ha River Security Group RVN, USS Charles Berry (DE-1035), Headquarters Commander in Chief Pacific Fleet, USS Oriskany (CVA-34).

Cooper was a member of the Office of Naval Security and Intelligence serving as a Harbor and River Patrol Boat Captain at Danang and the Dong Ha River Security Group, Cua Viet, Republic of Vietnam. William Cooper was awarded several medals for his leadership and heroism during combat including two with "V" for Valor.

He served on the Intelligence Briefing Team for the Commander In Chief of the Pacific Fleet. William was the Petty Officer of the Watch and designated KL-47 SPECAT operator in the CINCPACFLT Command Center at Makalapa Hawaii. There he held a Top Secret, Q, SI, security clearance.

William Cooper achieved the rank of First Class Petty Officer, QM1, E-6 after only 8 years of Naval service, a difficult task in any branch of the United States military. William Cooper received an Honorable Discharge from the United States Navy on December 11, 1975.


Bill Cooper was killed in November 2001 by Arizona law enforcement.


If Obama is different than Bush, why was ex-CIA chief, Robert Gates, transferred from one administration to another? Is this why Obama did not overturn spying on American citizens? Interesting, no?


You haven't heard the media talk about anybody knowing this was going to happen, right?

How I got into this stuff was through economics five years ago. I never knew it would lead me here but the truth is the truth whether I believe it or not. Trust me, I never wanted to believe in this..but economics is manipulated. We are being destroyed on purpose. It has everything to do with power.

Did 1985 Cartoon G.I. Joe Also Predict 9/11 And The Twin Towers Attack?



How did Alex Jones know about 9/11 before...9/11??? (and he knew it would be blamed on Osama Bin Laden, it would be the Twin Towers, and they would use airplanes...how can that be?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGtOFudmHG8

I know it sounds crazy....but what if powerful people want more power? Is it possible?

What about this stimulus... inflation makes citizen's poorer.. that is no mistake. The economist that is most popular in the United States is Keynes.

Here is what Keynes said about inflation:

“By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”

You can look the quote up yourself. The father of Keynesian economics admits that inflation is a way for government to steal from you!

Does anyone realize that we had a depression in 1921 (look it up), we did not 'bail' anyone out, the government raised rates, let weak businesses fail and we got out of it in a year. NOBODY talks about this! We talk about the depression in the thirties that lasted over a DECADE.

Also, in 1947 and 1981, we did the same thing- in the latter situation, Volcker raised rates, failing businesses failed and we got out of the problem pretty quickly. We have NEVER solved a problem through deficit spending. Have you ever climbed out of debt with a credit card?

I don't see how anyone supports the Obama administration when he is doing EXACTLY what Bush did in 2001... prolonging the day of reckoning by floating money into the system. You cannot solve this problem by creating more debt and supporting your cronies in the banking/ Federal Reserve system.

Things will bounce back in some respects (due to inflation) but all this money printing is going to destroy the dollar and cause prices to go sky high.

In short- the good news is that we will all be millionaires! .. That bad news is that we (and our country) will all be flat broke! Get ready for $500 toilet paper- maybe they'll sell by the square (?)!

Welcome to the corrupt world of politics, media and moneychangers (the same profession that Jesus threw out of the temple! Things haven't changed, the bankers are still corrupt!)

Absolutely Amazing: Just Like Obama, Tim Geithner's First Job Was At Kissinger Associates...

Obama to pick Timothy Geithner as Treasury secretary

Somehow that slipped past me. Isn't it amazing, the campaign of change is the 'same old, same old.' The Obama administration is making the Bush administration look fiscally sound with its' 'corporate welfare' to the banking institutions.

Hey, Obama, good pick with Timmy Geithner! Wasn't he the President of the Fed Reserve Bank of New York when Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers failed???

Tonight on PBS: Ten Trillion And Counting



All of the federal government’s efforts to stem the tide in the financial meltdown that began with the subprime mortgage crisis have added hundreds of billions of dollars to our national debt. FRONTLINE reports on how this debt will constrain and challenge the new Obama administration, and on the growing chorus on both sides of the aisle that without fiscal reform, the United States government may face a debt crisis of its own which makes the current financial situation pale in comparison. Through interviews with leading experts and insiders in government finance, the film investigates the causes and potential outcomes of—and possible solutions to—America’s $10 trillion debt.

U.N. panel says world should ditch dollar

By Jeremy Gaunt, European Investment Correspondent

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - A U.N. panel will next week recommend that the world ditch the dollar as its reserve currency in favor of a shared basket of currencies, a member of the panel said on Wednesday, adding to pressure on the dollar.

Currency specialist Avinash Persaud, a member of the panel of experts, told a Reuters Funds Summit in Luxembourg that the proposal was to create something like the old Ecu, or European currency unit, that was a hard-traded, weighted basket.

Persaud, chairman of consultants Intelligence Capital and a former currency chief at JPMorgan, said the recommendation would be one of a number delivered to the United Nations on March 25 by the U.N. Commission of Experts on International Financial Reform.

Big Surprise: The New World Order Doesn't Like Freedom Of Speech...



Rockefeller: Internet is “Number One National Hazard”

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars
March 23, 2009

Excerpts:

According to the great-grandson John D. Rockefeller, nephew of banker David Rockefeller, and former Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller the internet represents a serious threat to national security. Rockefeller is not alone in this assessment. His belief that the internet is the “number one national hazard” to national security is shared by the former Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell and Obama’s current director Admiral Dennis C. Blair.

“It really almost makes you ask the question would it have been better if we had never invented the internet,” Rockefeller mused during the confirmation hearing of Gary Locke (see video), Obama’s choice for Commerce Secretary. He then cites a dubious figure of three million cyber “attacks” launched against the Department of Defense every day. “Everybody is attacked, anybody can do it. People say, well it’s China and Russia, but there could be some kid in Latvia doing the same thing.”

Jay Rockefeller’s comments reveal an astounding degree of ignorance – or if not ignorance, outright propaganda. Since the September 11, 2001, attacks the government has cranked up the fear quotient in regard to cyber attacks and so-called cyber terrorism, a virtually non-existent threat except in the minds security experts and politicians. In the years since the attacks, not one real instance of real cyberterrorism has been recorded.

As more corporate media outlets fail — as evinced by several high profile newspapers going out of business recently — and more people flock to the internet to get their news and information, the government will increasingly employ fear tactics designed to portray the medium as a refuge for terrorists, pedophiles, and other miscreants.

It appears the Obama administration is attempting to micromanage this effort. Last week CNet “obtained a summary of a proposal from Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) that would create an Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, part of the Executive Office of the President. That office would receive the power to disconnect, if it believes they’re at risk of a cyberattack, ‘critical’ computer networks from the Internet.” As well, the effort would put the White House National Cybersecurity Advisor in charge of coordinating cyber efforts within the intelligence community and within civilian agencies.

Financial Times: Ron Paul Predicts 15 Year Depression...


But the credibility of both western governments and their currencies is waning, and has been ever since the gold standard was abandoned in 1971, says Mr Paul. And that means even “safe” investments are far from safe, he claims.


“People will start to abandon the dollar as current and past economic policies create a steep rise in interest rates,” Mr Paul says.


“If you are in Treasuries, you will need to be watchful and nimble to time your escape.”

Unfortunately, cashing out will not protect the value of investments, he insists, because “fiat” currencies will all decline over the coming years as measures to try to haul the world economy out of recession fail. “The current stimulus measures are making things a lot worse,” says Mr Paul.


“The US government just won’t allow the correction the economy needs.” He cites the mini-depression of 1921, which lasted just a year largely because insolvent companies were allowed to fail. “No one remembers that one. They’ll remember this one, because it will last 15 years.”

What's The Difference With These Hand Signals? (Hint: No Difference)





























Calling All Exorcists...

In Italy, when the hosts (communion wafers) go missing, cops get as worried as the priests. In recent months, churches have reported a shortage of hosts and votives, and lower levels of holy water in the fonts. At the same time, police are finding candle wax, knives and other satanic paraphernalia left behind at burglaries. Last month in Perugia, police investigated four satanic-ritual break-ins, including one at the sealed scene of the 2007 murder of U.K. student Meredith Kercher.

Police have noticed such a sharp increase in satanic-ritual crimes that they've started bringing priests along to help decipher crime scenes. The Vatican's Squadra Anti Sette, or antisect police force, has been around since 2006, but in the past year its numbers have doubled. "Satanic sects are proliferating," says the Vatican's chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, who has trained nearly 300 priests to perform exorcisms in Italy. He says more than 8,000 Satanic cults now operate there, with a membership of nearly 700,000. The Italian police estimate that satanic-inspired homicides have doubled over the past decade. The rise in satanic cults mimics a larger trend. Recent surveys show an increasing number of Italians are turning to the occult, from fortune tellers to faith healers. Ironically, satanists are giving a boost to the church as a linchpin of public security: cops now often attend Vatican-sponsored seminars in order to profile criminals. "We invite the police to sit in on exorcism classes," says Father Pedro Barrajon, a professor of theology in Rome. "The priests know what to look for."

Infowars: 'We Have Met The Enemy...And He Is Us'

Excerpt:

This has made life easier. We can join the conversation around just about any water cooler and fit right in. We know what we can say safely and what opinions to keep to ourselves. We have developed an entire vocabulary that enables us to sound wise and learned while not really saying anything of consequence. We have come to the realization that the only people who have valid opinions are in the media. If it hasn’t been uttered in front of a camera or written about in a newspaper or magazine, it just isn’t a valid opinion and not fit for public discussion. We have changed from the most innovative and revolutionary nation on Earth from our beginnings, into a nation of that has perfected the art of “group-think”. We have perfected the art of acquiescence and learned the waypoints to the paths of least resistance, and we have done so willingly.

Americans have learned where to tune into current opinions. We have designated the spokesmen for the right, the left, and the vocabulary we need to mimic the same arguments we hear in the media, replete with the “buzzwords” and catch phrases. We have freed ourselves from the burden of having our own opinions and making our own decisions. Critical thinking is frowned upon in our schools and in our boardrooms. Thinking “outside the box” has become a metaphor for saying the same thing in a different way. Those that truly “think outside the box” will find themselves looking up the latest keywords to slip into their resumes.

How did a nation that took so much pride in lively debate and different opinions become a nation that questions the loyalty of people who have dared to disagree with the policymakers in Washington? When did political dissent become a reason to end up grounded at an airport because you found out at a most inconvenient time that your name had been mysteriously added to a “no-fly list”? When did the American government begin building FEMA camps and what exactly is their purpose? When did Congress become the rubber stamp for policies of reading the correspondence and listening in on the conversations of the American public?

Pictured: Left, Athenian Owl at the Acropolis — the chief temple dedicated to Athena/Minerva — in Athens (c. 500 BC); right, an exact replica at the Bohemian Club in San Francisco, which even includes the missing beak Also, note satanic hand signal....

Excerpt:

But just because the owl is venerated by the Bohemian Club does not mean that it is only meant to symbolize Athena/Minerva. Lilith is also an apt identification: Lilith (Queen of the Demons), the great screeching owl mentioned in Isaiah 34:13-16; the night owl goddess that inhabits the ruins of Edom which subsequently became a permanent fixture of Kabbalistic demonology. Lilith is also closely related "to the Greek figure of Hecate, with her demands for human sacrifice," and the Grove participants perform a mock human sacrifice at the base of a 40-foot owl as part of the Cremation of Care ritual. In addition, the poet George Sterling, one of the most prominent "Bohos" of his time, wrote a play titled Lilith; a dramatic poem (1920), in which Lilith herself mentions the owl - demonstrating that they at least knew of such symbolism. Sterling stayed at the Bohemian Club in his own private room toward the end of his life, where he committed suicide by ingesting cyanide.

Misdirected “Bailout Rage” Sets Pretext For New Financial World Order

The Radical Polarization of Law Enforcement by (Big Finale Guest) Patrick Wood

A firestorm across America is raging against an intelligence report that associates peace-loving patriots with neo-Nazis, skinheads, anti-Semites and home-grown terrorists.

Entitled, The Modern Militia Movement, the report was issued from the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), which is a division of the Missouri Highway Patrol. MIAC was recently chartered as a "Fusion Center" by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security.

This outrageous document will make your blood boil because it profiles "home grown" terrorists as likely to be associated with people like Ron Paul (Bruce Disclosure: I still have a Ron Paul for President bumper sticker on my car) ,Chuck Baldwin or Bob Bar. Do you have an anti-abortion or "Get the US out of the UN" bumper sticker on your car? You are included, too!

News of Interest for March 17th....





The real AIG outrage Bruce Note: In my opinion, this "outrage" from Washington, DC is nothing more than a smokescreen. The fact remains that no matter how AIG spent the money- it was still paid to them by debt (money printing from the Federal Reserve). That should be the true outrage- but no mention from Washington on that!

Navy officer has UFO 'Close Encounter' along secluded CA highway


An off duty Navy petty officer second class had just gotten off duty at California's then Naval Air Station Miramar when his vehicle suddenly shut off along a dark and secluded piece of Interstate 15.


As the man retrieved a gas can from his trunk for what could be a long walk into nearby Kearny Mesa - he hears an unusual sound - "a release of air" - that draws his attention into the darkness on the other side of the four-lane highway. He sees "an object of some type that is long, low and extremely streamlined and silohutted." The year is 1971.


Following is his original account of the incident. Only minor editing changes were completed.

Four to Five THOUSAND Join Cincinnati Tea Party On Sunday...

CINCINNATI -- Thousands of Tri-State residents gathered Sunday on Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati to voice their opposition to government spending bills recently signed by President Barack Obama.

The group called itself the Cincinnati Tea Party, modeled after the Boston Tea Party of 1773.

Many of the demonstrators carried signs with slogans that said, "Honk if I'm paying your mortgage" or "Stop spending my allowance." Some even wore tea bags on their hats to make their point.

Cincinnati police estimated the crowd at 4,000 people. Many who spoke with News 5 Sunday afternoon said they're angry, including Rep. Jean Schmidt.

"I bet there's 5,000 people here and they're mad, just as I'm mad. They have a right to be mad at the unbridled spending that's happening in Washington," said Schmidt.

Ben Bernanke Reveals On 60 Minutes That He Was Mad When He Heard AIG Used Taxpayer Bailout Money For Executive Bonuses...


Question: Is He Equally Upset That The Federal Reserve Has Bankrupted The United States?


Another media propaganda piece, 60 Minutes explains the purpose of the Federal Reserve from the Chairman's perspective...No mention that it is not a government entity...that it is a private bank...that we owe them interest every time they print money. Not a word.
Good job, 60 Minutes.
Good job.

Russia's Medvedev calls for new international financial order

MOSCOW, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has urged the creation of a new and more equitable international financial regime so as to avoid future crisis, local media reported on Sunday.

"The current crisis has shown that their activities -- the activities of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and other structures -- are far from ideal," Medvedev said in an interview with the Channel One TV program.

Medvedev, ahead of the G20 summit in London in April, appealed for the general stabilization of the situation in the financial sector, including efforts for a new financial order amid the global financial crisis.

This is amazing! Despite the fact that we have been adversaries ... both sides are asking for a New World Order...

Big News: AOL Time Warner Admits Bilderberg Group Exists!!

Pictured: Henry Kissinbooger


Bruce Notes:



AOL Time Warner has just put out a fluff piece that is aimed to poke fun at people who they call "conspiracists". They are saying that the only people who believe the group is for a 'new world order' are fringe conspiracy goofballs.

In its' simplest form, the only thing that conspiracy means is that events do not happen by accident, they are part of an agenda. Taken in that context, is that really not hard to believe? Yet the bosses of AOL Time Warner attend these secret meetings so it is not so surprising that they should throw innuendos in their story (although there should have been disclosure of their conflict of interest).

I actually see this as a victory, however. This is the first time that a media group has admitted that the Bilderbergs (world leaders, industry leaders, media leaders) do exist... and they do meet in secret.

Yet, oddly, they failed to answer a basic journalist question.

WHY?

The article also makes it sound like those who believe in the Bilderbergs are anti-Obama and this is the reason for all of this.

Untrue. Those of us who have looked into all of this know that Bush was a globalist as well as many presidents that were before him. Remember, it was George H.W. Bush that peppered his speeches back in the early 90's with the term "New World Order" and that term has been spoken from the lips of all the presidents after him (and many leaders before him).

People are waking up. Those who took risks to look silly will be vindicated.

A Weekend Reminder








First Christian UFO-Alien Symposium... Big Finale Guest (coming back on April 10th) Lynn Marzulli on panel of experts...

UFOs and aliens may not neatly match the Hollywood depiction of advanced races from far off planets reaching us through worm holes or inter-dimensional portals. Daily sightings of anomalous airborn crafts worldwide and accounts of alien abduction might find an explanation in something as handy as your Bible.

The aliens may indeed be fallen angels.

The very first Christian symposium on aliens will address this idea July 3-5, organized by Guy Malone, author and co-founder of Alien Resistence - an organization that studies Biblical ideas on the UFO and alien abduction phenomena.

I probably won't get to listen to this until later tonight (at work presently) but I had a lot of problems/ issues with audio delay, etc. It was difficult but I just kept rolling. Toward the end, I actually got dumped off of the Blog Talk site so I'm not even sure if that part of the program was recorded.

Tonight, I will be back at 7pm Pacific at www.BruceDCollins.com for The Big Finale. Don't miss it!

The FBI Is Moving To Confiscate This Movie...


Alex Jones has just released a DVD documentary titled "The Obama Deception" and the FBI is working to shut down production of this movie.... it is getting out though.

I have known about much of this stuff from my own research ...and so can all of you. The problem is that most are too lazy to do so or they blindly pledge their allegiance to either of two crime syndicates/ political parties. Or, they just trust anything that the media and political shills say.

Today, we know that more than 50,000 troops will stay in Iraq after August 2010 (Why?) and that we will have a troop surge in Afghanistan - a third world country with no credible Air Force, Army or Navy- Again, why? We know Obama ran against NAFTA and now he embraces it. We know that Obama ran against warrantless wiretapping and now he will not overturn it. As Jon Stewart recently pointed out on the Daily Show (in a segment about Iraq), the new President looks a lot like the Old President...there is a reason for that.

Why do few politicians speak out that all this stimulus is nothing more than debt (plus interest) that we will have to pay back to a private bank known as the Federal Reserve?

You can google and find that the three top contributors to both John McCain AND Barack Obama were: Citibank, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. THE BANKERS. Who was Bush's Treasury Secretary? Hank Paulson from Goldman Sachs. Who is Obama's Treasury Secretary? Timothy Geithner from the Federal Reserve. Funny...our media doesn't really point out the conflict of interest, does it?

But, now it makes sense when the Congress wouldn't pass the bailout that both McCain AND Obama (AND BUSH) campaigned across America for two days and urged people to call their Congressman to pass the bailout... which WENT TO THE BANKS WHO OWN SHARE OWNERSHIP IN THE FEDERAL RESERVE: Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank.

The country is beyond broke, yet the politicians don't care and the people are too ill informed to comprehend.

I predicted last month on the internet and on internet radio that we would see a major stock market correction in the first six months of the year...this has happened as the markets are now down to 1997 levels.... All of this has to eventually swing over into a hyperinflation (sans jobs) ...

What we will see is riots, looting, murders, chaos..major cities under Martial Law...Breakdowns in food and water distribution... Currency Collapse... It sounds like I am delusional...but all I have to do is look at all the countries who have gone this route in the past... there is a 100% track record for the countries who have ventured down this path...Its not delusion, it's history... Look at Zimbabwe today- not a pretty picture....

Oh yes, we will have an infrastructure/ jobs program... what does this mean for the country? MORE DEBT. If we cannot sell these roads and bridges to foreign countries, we will only be burying ourselves into deeper debt that we and our future generations will be enslaved to... and that's really the motive, isn't it?

In fact, the original jobs program from the first depression actually prolonged the first depression (because you cannot deficit spend your way to wealth- even a child who thinks for himself knows this).

Nine years after the start of the Great Depression and the massive jobs machine, Henry Morgenthau Jr. — close friend, lunch companion, loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt — and key architect of FDR’s New Deal, admitted this:

“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work.”

“I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot!”


Doesn't this sound like what we are doing today? Does anyone remember the definition of insanity?

Joblessness was 19% in 1938-- and we were in massive debt... Debt to who? THE FEDERAL RESERVE. Everytime they loan the US money, we owe them the principal - and interest- and it's kind of hard to pay back the interest when the money was never in the system. What do you do? PRINT MORE MONEY AND OWE MORE INTEREST. You'd think our good Conservatives and Liberals would tell us that, wouldn't you?

This time around, we are not heading into the Great Depression...unfortunately, we are headed into the GREATEST Depression. I truly wish it were not so.

However, having the information leads to freedom and wise choices...I don't intend to be a victim...

Best to all of you and may we learn as a people not to strive for money but to strive for freedom and to restore our republic.

This is part of the movie:

Lone PBS Station in Colorado Airs Aaron Russo Film, Offers Alex Jones Film As Part of Donation Package And Explains Federal Reserve... What ?!?

GRAND ILLUSION – THE FEDERAL RESERVE

by James Quinn
March 11, 2009

The whole world is in a state of complete confusion. Americans are coming to the realization that their lives have been a grand illusion. You thought your neighbor had it made. They were driving a Mercedes, spent $40,000 on a new kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, sent their kids to private school, had a second home at the shore, and took exotic vacations all over the world. Now their house is in foreclosure and you are paying to bail them out. The anger and outrage in the country is at the highest level since the Vietnam War. The American public is being misled by government officials, politicians, and the Federal Reserve regarding the causes of this crisis and the solutions needed to solve our economic tribulations.

The average American does not know much about the Federal Reserve. The government and the Federal Reserve prefer to operate in the shadows. If the American public understood what their policies have done to their lives, they would be rioting in the streets. Henry Ford had a similar opinion:

"It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."

Most Americans believe that the Federal Reserve is part of the government. They are wrong. It is a privately held corporation owned by stockholders. The Federal Reserve System is owned by the largest banks in the United States. There are Class A,B, and C shareholders. The owner banks and their shares in the Federal Reserve are a secret. Why is this a secret? It is likely that the biggest banks in the country are the major shareholders. Does this explain why Citicorp, Bank of America and JP Morgan, despite being insolvent, are being propped up by Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner?

They Will Use Romans 13 To Keep You In Line Under Martial Law, To Escort You To A FEMA Camp and To Do Unspeakable Things...


The way we view Romans chapter 13:1-7 greatly determines the way we interact with the governments of men. The ideas we are about to set forth are radical, even revolutionary. They will overthrow many sacred "traditions" among those who claim to be followers of Jesus.

True Christianity is a way of life which involves renouncing the world and pledging our allegiance to the Kingdom of God. There is an inherent conflict between the old kingdom we have come out from and the new Kingdom to which we now belong. Jesus was crucified as a result of this conflict. He has assured us that if we are true to His word that we can expect the same kind of treatment. "I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world" (John 17:14).


To try to combine the humanistic governments of men with the Spirit government of God is an impossible task. Any attempt to combine the governments of men with God's government is doomed to failure. Nevertheless, throughout history politicians have attempted to mix the holy and the profane. They have borrowed heavily from God's law in order to appear righteous, yet man is still left in control. This strange mixture is often called "God inspired government" or "Government based on God's laws." As a result, multitudes of Christians have been brought into bondage to patriotism and nationalism. They have been forced to submit to manmade governments under the pretext that God has commanded our submission in Romans 13:1-7.


Since around the 4th century AD many have been led to believe that manmade governments actually possess authority to rule over God's people. A misinterpretation of Romans 13:1-7 is used to support this belief.


The average churchgoer believes that Christians should be satisfied with the humanistic governments of men, obeying the laws of the land. They don't stop to consider that God desires His people to live under His Spirit government.


The crux of the matter is this: Does Paul, in Romans 13:1-7, argue that the civil governments of this world have legitimate authority over the people of God?


We believe that the obedient people of God are not bound to obey the manmade civil governments of this world. God's people are answerable to God above all else and are bound by His commands. At the same time, God's people are not to use their liberty as a cloak for evil, to foment rebellion in the flesh, or waste time trying to politically influence the governments of this world.


Furthermore, we believe Paul, in Romans 13:1-7, is referring to the spiritual leaders of the Body of Christ, not the civil authorities of this world. Remember that the true followers of Jesus are Spirit people whose lives should reflect the fact that they belong to another Kingdom, the Kingdom of God. Their stay on earth is only transitory.


As citizens of Heaven, we are bound to submit and pledge allegiance to the King of Heaven and His government over us. We are not bound to submit to the government of some nation just because we happen to be living within its borders.


Romans 13 has been wrongly interpreted by ruling civil governments to mean that Christians should submit to them. Combined with nationalism and patriotism, a powerful weapon has been formed to neutralize and misdirect the power of God's Kingdom within His people. The idea that God's government is to be subordinated to the civil governments of this world is a deception that must be exposed.


This does not sit well with those in civil governments who claim to have power and authority to rule over other men. Throughout history, those who have declared independence from the systems of this world and dependence upon God, have almost always encountered violent reactions. They were frequently persecuted unto death by the "civil" authorities. It will be the same today for anyone who will break all allegiances and ties with this world and declare Jesus Christ as their Sovereign King.


This does not mean Christians are out to cause trouble or overthrow the governments of this world. On the contrary, Christians make the best citizens because they strive to obey the laws of God, which are far superior to the feeble attempts of men at lawmaking. Actually, the true Christian's goal is to live a life pleasing to God and win souls to Christ. This is hardly a threatening activity! We seek to obey Paul's advice in Romans 12:18, "If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men."


Yet, the rulers of the nations of this world view this type of separation unto God as a serious offense. When a group of people refuses to pledge allegiance to their authority, that group is considered a threat to "national security" and dealt with accordingly. It was the same with King Nebuchadnezzar, who was determined to destroy anyone who would not bow down to his image.


In Verse 1, the Interlinear text reads, "Let every soul be subject to authorities above him." The word translated authorities, or powers in the King James version, is the Greek word exousia. (Strong's #1849) The most crucial question in this study is, "Who are the exousia or authorities that Paul was referring to in this verse?"


Traditionally 99% of the church world has interpreted this passage to mean that Paul was referring to the manmade civil governments of this world. The governments of the world have been quick to place their "stamp of approval" on such an interpretation. Imagine the advantage enjoyed by worldly rulers when they can point to the Christians' own sacred writings for proof that Christians should submit to their authority.


It is not obvious from the original Greek text what authorities Paul was referring to in Romans 13. He does not specifically state that he is referring to civil government authorities anywhere in these verses.


It is our belief that the authorities or powers that Paul was referring to in Romans 13:1 were the spiritual leaders of the Body of Christ in Rome. Paul was not exhorting the Christians in Rome to submit to the Roman Empire. He was exhorting them to submit to their own government - to the spiritual leaders whom God has placed over the Ecclesia (called-out ones) to guide it by His Spirit.


God has always appointed leaders over His people such as Moses, Joshua, David and the Apostles, including Paul. He has invested those leaders with the authority to rule. Paul could easily have been speaking about Christian authorities within the Ecclesia. Why would Paul be directing the Roman Christians to obey the authorities of the Roman Empire when they had their own leaders to obey? Obviously, he was not.


In verse 4 of the Greek text, Paul refers back to the authority three times in the singular, using the word "it." ("he" in the King James version) Paul tells us "it" is a servant to us for good; "it" does not wear the sword in vain; and "it" is a servant of God.


Civil governments of this world rarely, if ever, meet these three points. You would expect them to, if Paul was indeed referring to them. Many times civil authorities stand in total opposition to the gospel and cruelly persecute God's people, just as Jesus said they would (John 15:20). In contrast, godly authority, exercised by God's leaders, will always meet these three qualifications and act as a "servant of God" for our good.


When we realize Paul was talking about spiritual leaders of the Body of Christ in verse 1, the following verses become much clearer. We can focus on the fact that God has His own government which operates under His authority. As His followers, we are expected to submit to that authority which is invested in His leaders.


Civil governments make demands of those who happen to be living within their territory. These demands often openly contradict the gospel and the law of God. For the true Christian to submit to such commands would be sin. Yet according to the "civil government" theory of Romans 13, Christians are supposed to submit to the "laws of the land." This brings confusion and God is not the author of confusion.


Confusion is eliminated when we realize Paul was not commanding submission to manmade civil governments, but to God's government. The blood of the martyrs bears witness to the fact that true Christians throughout history have come to this conclusion. They have been persecuted and killed by "civil" governments on every continent because they were determined to submit to God's government and refused to obey the commands of men which opposed or contradicted God's laws.


Verses 2 through 5 give us several important reasons why we must submit to true godly authority. First of all, Paul says if you resist God's leaders, that you are in all respects resisting God. Those who resist will receive damnation. He goes on to explain that God's leaders are not a terror to good works. We need not be afraid to submit to godly authority if our hearts are dedicated to God.


In verse 4, Paul explains that godly authority is actually our servant if we desire to do what is right. At the same time, he warns us that if we do evil the same authority will become an avenger and execute God's wrath upon us. What a clear and beautiful picture of godly authority and how it is meant to function in the Body of Christ. Additionally, each one of the above points can be supported by numerous scriptures, which is always a characteristic of solid godly doctrine.


This kind of true godly authority is rarely found in the religious systems of today. As a result, many become confused. They end up believing Paul must be talking about civil governments who punish according to their own humanistic definitions of good and evil, which fluctuate from day to day.


The spiritual authority described by Paul has all but vanished from the Body of Christ. As a result, evil works are not punished and sin runs rampant among God's people.


Paul sums up his arguments in verse 5 by stating the two main reasons why we must be subject to godly authority: 1) because of wrath, or the fear of God's judgement, and 2) because of conscience.

Brace for 'New world order'


By Yen Feng


THE global financial crisis has called for a 'new world order', as venerable banks and financial houses have all but in the last six months, Education Minister and Second Minister for Defence Ng Eng Hen said on Wednesday.


'That the global financial crisis has precipitated this calling for a new Order is stating the obvious. But the consequences of radical change to come in the ensuing transition and post-crisis Order can lead to a different world,' he said.


'We should be forewarned, alert and prepared. The effect on individual countries - including that on Singapore and Singaporeans - may not always be immediately apparent or easily projected.'
