Listen to Mae Brussell - January 25, 1988

This woman is amazing! You'll learn a lot from her.

TOPICS:
"NUTRASWEET, G.D. SEARLE, AND THE CIA. LONG TERM PLANS FOR FOREIGN POLICY, THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS. COMMISSION ON INTEGRATED LONG TERM STRATEGY. 'Foreign Policy Run by Security Elite.' BLUEPRINT FOR 20th CENTURY. PROMOTION OF RICHARD ARMITAGE, DEFENSE DEPARTMENT, TO REPLACE FRED IKLE. Drug cartel in DIA."



MORE ABOUT MAE
Complacent Beverly Hills housewife Mae Brussell had quite an awakening in 1963 when President Kennedy was assassinated, and again when she read and cross-indexed the massive 26-volume Warren Commission Hearings. She saw that the international terrorist network that had made up the Axis powers during World War Two had gone underground and continued their world-wide fascist campaign, overthrowing one country after another.

America was not exempt. Frustrated that this vitally important information was largely unknown to the American people, Mae went to her friend Henry Miller of Big Sur, California (with whom she would later brag to friends about an affair). He told her that people can do anything they want if they apply themselves; live anywhere, learn anything. And there is nothing worse than looking back and regretting not having done what was important to you. "Don't die before you're dead."

And with that advice Mae moved herself and the kids to Carmel, California and began the selfless, nonstop journey of political and history research that would soon rock the radio airwaves of Monterey and Santa Cruz counties from 1971 through 1988. Her listeners would never be the same.

While most of America slept:
Mae saw that most anything Americana was being infiltrated, murdered, infected, poisoned, or deregulated. As Mae stated at the University of California in Santa Cruz: "What is happening to us is a classical case of totally destroying us. And by the same people who've been at the top doing it since World War Two."

On May 29, 1968 Mae confronted Rose Kennedy at the Monterey Peninsula Airport and handed her a note telling her Robert Kennedy would soon be assassinated. A week later he was shot to death at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Mae's first published article in Paul Krassner's The Realist was actually financed by John Lennon (Krassner couldn't afford the $5,000 printing cost).

Frank Zappa once gave her a computer for filing and cross-indexing her research (but she never used it).

Two weeks before Patty Hearst was kidnapped Mae told a Syracuse University audience that the SLA shooting of school superintendent Marcus Foster was the beginning of terror and psychological sabotage, in the same vein Germany had been subjected to in the 1930s.

In August 1977 (broadcast #282) Mae discussed Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple move to Guyana. She speculated it might be a training camp for assassination teams -- this was more than a year before 913 members of the church were massacred.

Much of Mae's March 29, 1981 broadcast was spent discussing the power- struggle within the Reagan Administration and asked who will kill off their team members first. The following morning President Reagan was shot in Washington D.C.

Her countless list of German and White Russian fascist fingerprints to President Kennedy's assassination reached its peak in May of 1988 when she discovered the name "Adolf H. Schicklgruber" handwritten in Marina Oswald's notebook of poetry in the Warren Commission exhibits.

There were times when death threats drove Mae off the air: once by Charles Manson family member Sandra Good in September 1975. Sometimes Mae resorted to recording her shows at home on her small cassette tape recorder and privately mailed out copies to her subscribers.

In 1983 Mae's show was picked up by listener-sponsored KAZU FM in nearby Pacific Grove. Five years later she was forced off the air, for the last time, from death threats but continued sending out her weekly tapes to subscribers until June 13, 1988 (tape #862).
Mae died of cancer on October 3rd of that year. She was 66.

TV & Mass Programming: Is the One-Eyed Monster Still in Your Home?

People often give me a strange look when I mention I don't own a television. Several have kindheartedly offered me one to which I reply, "Thank you so much but I don't have TV by choice."

Like most of America in the 1950's, I grew up watching the boob tube. Saturday morning cartoons, Lassie on Sunday night after the bath and Father Knows Best. I remember watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and the moon landing which today I think was a hoax but that's another subject you can read about elsewhere on this blog. 

Nevertheless, the TV was the center of our life and my folks even moved it to the kitchen so we could watch it during dinner. Back then, most folks didn't have more than one TV in the home.

Over the years, I would go back and forth with or without a TV for various reasons but after I woke up to the deception and lies being fed us, I just got tired of it altogether and tossed the thing out. In fact, where I now live is a furnished condo on the beach and it came with 2 tv's so I asked them to remove them which they did.

So this morning, came upon the following post with which I totally agree. What say ye?

Mass Programming

November 1, 2014


People have NOT always been this way.

Have you ever stopped to wonder what brought about such a huge and tragic transformation in the character of mankind?

‘For men shall be
–lovers of their own selves,
–covetous,
–boasters,
–proud,
–blasphemers,
–disobedient to parents,
–unthankful,
–unholy,
–Without natural affection,
–trucebreakers,
–false accusers,
–incontinent, [lacking self control]
–fierce,
–despisers of those that are good,
–Traitors,
–heady, [rash/reckless]
–highminded, [blinded by pride; arrogant, haughty, insolent]
–lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
–Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:

 **from such turn away.**

. . . Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.’
(2 Tim. 3:3-5, 7)

I will tell you, in a word, why people have become this way:

TELEVISION !!

More than 60 years of social programming, and the list of sociopathic tendencies that Paul described 2,000 years ago, have now become a widespread reality in the Western World.

If you’ve lived as long as I have, you have witnessed the full program as it was put forth over the airwaves, little by little, leading us into deeper and more wicked sins as a nation, as time went on. If you’ve lived as long as I have, you have witnessed the character of our people change from innocence, generosity, love, honesty, fairness, respect for authority, patriotism, community-mindedness and concern for the welfare of others to . . . the sick, twisted description given above! (AND MORE!!, because that only describes their ATTITUDES . . . their behavior is even worse!)

You cannot name ONE thing on that list that has not subtly (or blatantly) been modeled and promoted as an American value, through television, over the course of the last few decades. That list is a comprehensive description of American television–read it again. Many of you are into the programming so deeply that you can’t even see it.


https://dontbefooled666.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/tv-1958.jpg
TV 1958

So . . . WHEN will you turn yours off?!!! Are you still allowing your CHILDREN to sit in front of the one-eyed monster, and have their consciences seared and their brains rewired to produce the sort of sociopathic monsters described above? Do you really think they are somehow immune? Don’t kid yourself–the programming is HIGHLY effective in producing the sort of minions that Satan needs to help run his kingdom!

And don’t deceive yourself that children’s TV is any better. ‘They’ have this down to a science. It’s just very SUBTLE at the level aimed at young children–symbols and very subtle things that most of us would not even pick up on. They ratchet up the brainwashing later, but they begin laying the foundation with the little kids.

Nowadays, everyone thinks this is ‘normal’, the way the kids act–the rebellion, the disrespect for authority, the disdain for adults, the self-centeredness and arrogance–because they are ALL being subjected to the same programming! But this is NOT NORMAL!!! This is what happens when you let Satan help you raise your kids. (YES, that is EXACTLY what is going on when you sit them down in front of his programming device.)

COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD

Here's a GREAT message which clarifies the GOSPEL along with what we are to do!

http://soundoctrine.org/2014/05/02/our-message/

Our Message
by Chris and Gina

Jer_50:2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.

This study is intended to be a reference tool, an overview of the issue at hand, concerning the awakening that is taking place in the house of God as it addresses the concerns of the Christian that is understanding the apostate condition of the corporate church system. The question was raised, what are we to do? This work will shed light on that concern and give those that are searching, something to hold on to. This study is an overview of key doctrine that has been corrupted or all together lost in the organized church system. Addressing those issues is first and the study will conclude with what God through scripture calls us to do when we “see” what is happening. It must be realized that this vision is a gift from God. God only enables those with a heart that is seeking him to see the truth concerning these issues of the day. This is what Jesus was talking about when he told us:

Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Only those whom God accounts worthy are freed from the bondage, the captivity of deception that Jesus warned in the last days would be so bad, so convincing, that it would almost deceive the very elect. God’s sheep hear his voice, are not deceived, but deception is a primary tool that God uses to do his work of judgment and separation as he gathers a people unto himself that will spend eternity with him. We’ll look at some key doctrine that must be understood in these days of gross darkness.

Covenant and Israel

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jeremiah31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
Ezekiel 11:20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Ezekiel 36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

There is no confusion; the new covenant is made with Israel. Israel are Gods people. Israel in the old testament were a physical people. In the new testament Israel are a spiritual people, a spiritual house.

1Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

This foundational doctrine was attacked and all but lost early in the post cross era when man created a new entity known as “The Church” which separated it from Israel. The word church in scripture is never capitalized, it is not a proper name, Israel is. All false doctrine stems from this primary error, man builds his own house, upon its own base:

Zechariah 5:11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

This controversy is written:

Isaiah 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

Those that proclaim these doctrines are outcasts:

Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

Under the new covenant, a Jew is now inward:

Romans 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

God’s people under the new covenant are his people because they are born again, the covenant is written in their heart. This is what it means to be saved by grace.

Grace

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Grace G5485
charis
khar’-ece
From G5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude): – acceptable, benefit, favour, gift, grace (-ious), joy liberality, pleasure, thank (-s, -worthy).

We are saved by divine influence upon the heart, this is the gospel. When we are saved by grace, God writes the law in our heart, circumcises our heart. There is a false teaching of grace rampant in today’s church that comforts us in our self life that says grace is an unmerited cover for our sins so God can’t see it, he only sees Jesus. This is a bogus lie. Grace is the flow of Christ to men that changes us, divinely causing us to walk in God’s statutes. Pasting a couple comments on grace…

Grace isn’t that God lets you live even though you’re a sinner; grace is that God lets you die in His Son so that His Son can be your life.
Grace is the Niagara Falls “flow” of Jesus Christ pouring out of God to you as the supply of light, supply of righteousness, supply of truth, supply of love, supply of everything that Christ is.
Grace is God’s supply of Christ to your soul. Grace is Christ living in you as the end of the (old) Adamic man, the increase of a new Man, as a light that you’ve never seen with before, as a nature that starts to conquer your soul and expand the boundaries of His kingdom.

When God sees our true repentance, we pass under the shepherd’s rod, and are inspected. If God accounts us worthy, at his discretion, he allows us to enter into the bond of the covenant.

Ezekiel 20:37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:

In the context of Ephesians, right after we are “saved by grace” we are taught the result; we become part of the commonwealth of Israel.

Ephesians 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

When we are in the flesh, without Christ, we are aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, strangers from the covenant of promise. A commonwealth is a body of people bound together by covenant. Israel are God’s covenant people, old testament (covenant) physical, new testament (covenant) spiritual.

Repentance

Matthew 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Mark 6:12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

Every time we see the gospel presented in scripture the first call is always to “repent”. What is repentance?

The quick answer is turning from self to God. The amplified answer is turning from a self directed way of life to full surrender to God, submitting yourself to his authority. It’s actually undoing what happened in the garden, no longer eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Repentance is a U-turn…you turn from going your way to going God’s way. No longer will you live according to your own understanding, wisdom, logic, skills, talents, plans, hopes, goals, dreams, etc. No longer will you live out from your own resources. No longer will you “be your own god”. You reject the tree of knowledge and choose of the tree of life. This means full and utter dependence upon God. For everything.

True repentance may start with a godly sorrow; however repentance is not being sorry for your sins or confessing and asking forgiveness from God. Nor does repenting mean you stop what you think are sins. Biblical repentance is not defined as “turning from sins”. The word repent literally means to change the mind. Turning from sins without surrender and submission to God will not and cannot make you righteous or holy. “Sins” are the fruit of or the manifestation of what sin really is, which is godlessness. Sin is living as if you are your own god. It is independence and disobedience. You can become very moral and “good” on the outside by turning from sins but your heart is still wicked and lost until you bow down and make place for God to be your god which is true repentance. Yes, “sins” will be forsaken because you will be obeying God from the heart as he begins to write his laws there.

Antichrist/Transgressors

2John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
2John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
2John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
2John 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

An antichrist is one who transgresses and abides not in the doctrine of Christ. The doctrine of Christ is about the indwelling, where Christ is come in the flesh of his body of believers. This is the problem of the day, the modern corporate church have become sin management centers that teach another gospel, promising salvation to anyone who repeats a prayer or claims membership in the perceived “Church”.

Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

All this is foretold, that the antichrist, the transgressors, would come to the full. The transgressors are those that teach we can enter the kingdom another way, outside of the covenant. This gospel (that is not the gospel) has no power, this is what the corporate church has become, exactly what Paul was writing to Timothy about. This is the reason sin is rampant today in the house of God.

2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Jesus Christ come in the flesh is the New Covenant, where the law is written in our heart. This the truth, the doctrine of Christ, that has been lost to the false gospel. At the foundation of the false gospel is the misinterpretation of grace. Grace is taught to be unmerited favor but it means divine influence. To be saved by grace is to be regenerated by the power of God. This is the new covenant written in our hearts, our inward parts.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1Corinthians 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

This is what the antichrist gospel of the transgressors has done, it has taken away the daily sacrifice, this is the abomination of desolation. The message that we are trapped in our sinful state by our earthly body is not the gospel. These teachers have polluted the sanctuary, done wickedly against the covenant.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Daniel 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Jeremiah 51:51 We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame hath covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’S house.

The Lord’s Strange Act

Isaiah 28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

A work we wouldn’t believe:

Habakkuk 1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
Habakkuk 1:6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.

The work being referenced here is the fact that God allows false teachers to come into his own house for the purpose of judgment. Understanding the metaphor of scripture and linking that to what we see in our day, it’s clear the stage of this “work” is in the final phase.

Revelations 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

When we understand the true doctrine of Christ how he “is” come in the flesh that God writes the covenant on our inward parts, circumcises our hearts, allowing us to enter into covenant relationship through his power, his grace, and that a Jew is now a Jew inwardly, we are able to understand what also happens. That there will be false teachers that claim they have the covenant written on their heart, that claim to be born again, but aren’t.

Revelations 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Revelations 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Revelations 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

These are those who “do wickedly against the covenant” claim to be in covenant but aren’t.

Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

The synagogue (church) of Satan is the modern preacher of the false gospel that has done away with the understanding of the covenant, Israel, and spiritual regeneration. They claim to be Jews, with circumcised hearts, born again from above, but aren’t.

Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

The gospel message that tells us we can be saved while keeping our life is the false gospel. The wages of sin is death. The covenant of salvation requires death. We lay down our lives in the flesh to allow our spiritual life to be born. Any claim to spiritual regeneration without laying down our life is counterfeit, a form of godliness denying the power.

The Kingdom

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

When we enter into the covenant we enter the kingdom.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
1Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

A result of the departure from sound doctrine is the misunderstanding surrounding the kingdom of God. The driving force today is man in the name of God seeking to establish Gods earthly kingdom. This is the end result of man building his own house upon its own base as Zechariah prophesied. Man in his own wisdom ignores the truth of scripture.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Separation

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

What are we to do?

Leviticus 15:31 Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.
1Kings 8:53 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.
Ezra 10:11 Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.
Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
2Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
1Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

God’s people have always been called to holiness, sanctification, separation, from the world, from the unclean. We are a separate people. We are now at the point in the study where we can clearly see the answer to the question. Separate the holy from the profane; the clean from the unclean.

2Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

This foundational call to holiness and sanctification has never changed, but in the effort to “reach the world for Christ” this truth has been forsaken. Nothing new, as Israel has always gone from holiness to a mingled state, from purity to whoredom. The patterns are always the same and today, at what is clearly the end of the age, Israel the church has mingled itself with the world at a level never before seen.

Matthew 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Matthew 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

The mustard seed of error grows into the tree in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, the tree of Babylon:

Daniel 4:11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:
Daniel 4:12 The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.

The mustard seed of error grows and grows:

Jeremiah 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
Revelations 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

The corporate church Rome and Protestant combined built upon its own base, becomes the tree of Babylon, a cage, a snare. Its false doctrine are plagues:

Revelations 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Revelations 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

The Lord’s voice from heaven says:

Revelations 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues

The walk of the christian, the spiritual jew, my people, today is as it has always been, separate from the unclean, no compromise. Understanding the call to holiness, separation, and sanctification makes these troublesome scriptures clear.

Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Matthew 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Ignoring this call, as history written for our admonition shows, never ends well.

1Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
1Corinthians 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
1Corinthians 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
1Corinthians 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
1Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
1Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

So…when we “see” the apostasy, which literally means a defection from truth, then what? Clearly we are to separate. If our church is not teaching the truths mentioned above, FLEE!! There is no true fellowship or unity in the spirit with lies. Sincerity does not trump truth. We can not mix and mingle with an assembly that has a false gospel.

VIDEO: 9/11 = Rockefeller Family False Flag - Almost 100 Years in the Making





Published on Jul 31, 2013

"The events of September 11th were not only foreshadowed in every form of media imaginable, but they also appear on the U.S. money supply. Many people have seen parts of this.

How do Vaccines, Mercury, Autism and Genocide Connect?



David Ayoub, M.D. goes through the relations of Mercury to Autism as well its connections to "National Security Study Memorandum 200"; for population control. Showing its shocking connections to today's G.A.V.I. Are powerful forces really trying to help the poor people or could it be for another agenda; the sterilization of the poor? This is an upsetting video, so brace yourself.

Over the last several years, I've been investigating among other things, mercury poisoning. As a result I finished up last December of replacing all the amalgam in my teeth. Also, I have been taking diatomaceous earth almost daily which helps pull toxic metals out of the body. This excellent 90 min video from 2005 is very sobering but so important. Please find the time to listen because ignoring the facts is not good for your health.

Eye Witness Account of Hitler Looks ALOT Like USA Today

Great article - everyone needs to read this. As a former missionary in Germany which today is filled with atheism, I knew some older folks who praised Hitler because he initially helped the country in spite of its guise to entrap them later - a pattern we can see happening here in the USA if we simply open our eyes.

While living in Berlin 2002-2005, I befriended a young German woman who had taught school in Texas for one year, so she spoke excellent English. Now and again, she would make comments about some aspects of America looking like Nazi Germany to which I took offense. Since then, I have apologized to her as I now see what she was talking about. It's not a pretty picture, folks, but the first step in solving a problem is acknowledging that there is a problem.

She survived Hitler and wants to warn America

posted by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor


Kitty Werthmann

Kitty Werthmann survived Hitler.

“What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

“We voted him in.”


Aldolf Hitler

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”
No so.


Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.


Austrian girls welcome Hitler

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.


Austrians saluting

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids


Poster promoting "Hitler Youth"

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”

And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.


A pro-Hitler rally

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

“Then food rationing began

“In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.


Young Austrians

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.

“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.

“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.

“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..

“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.



“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.

“ Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too


Austrian kids loyal to Hitler

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Then they took our guns

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.


Kitty Werthmann

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eye-witness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world.

“Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.”

Beware of Common Core! Listen to Max Ratt

)

Published on Mar 12, 2014

In this episode Max examines the "Common Core Standards". An educational program which has been implemented by stealth, once again, in the nation's public school system and which has also been adopted by and embraced by ALL schools throughout America. Max identifies the players involved and explains their Evil and Well Organized Intentions to Dumb Down American Children. Max clearly shows how this system of standards is being used to limit and eliminate upward social mobility, as well as financial advancement, ultimately crushing what is left of the American Dream.

“The aim of public education is not to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level to breed and train standardized citizenry to put down dissidence and originality. That is the aim of the United States”
H.L Mencken, eugenicist

“By design, we are doing social engineering. We’re using education to consciously invent the future of our culture and society.”
