Signs of Judgment - Christchurch Earthquakes and the National Christmas Tree (USA)

The Open Scroll Blog

Posted: 27 Feb 2011

[. . .]

The church is being judged at the present time. That's us, you and I, right? We need to get this and stop deferring to others. Imagine that in all-caps, if it helps. This present judgment has been announced and confirmed through the words of many saints, prophetic dreams and visions, signs in the heavens and signs in the earth. One of the most obvious scriptures testifying of this season is in 1 Peter 4.

16) Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17) For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
1 Peter 4:16-18

The nature of this judgment is that it begins gently and escalates. It must be so to accomplish the Lord's purposes, maximizing the harvest and bringing forth a purified people. I've been engaged in this judgment on a number of levels. Those of us who resist what must be seen as the diminishing extension of mercy are finding ourselves moving backwards, in a sense, being estranged from the Lord and more dull of hearing. Those of us who resist this work are by nature not perceiving it that way. Those who are being convicted in this hour and subsequently repent are perceiving how there is an immediate and striking widening gulf in the ranks. Seasons of judgment have most certainly been visited upon the church in numerous cycles over the course of the past several years, but make no mistake; today is different. The "luxury" of second chances is now passing. When this season has passed, where we have not responded with obedience we will forfeit reward. Many who even read here will wager that I'm wrong about that - and lose big! I pray it's not you. I pray it's not you.

Mark Baker/AP -- some recent signs. The earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ have been recognized by many watchful saints as signs to the church. The notable one of September 2010 was widely acknowledged as miraculous for the magnitude of the quake relative to the cost in human life. The cost then was zero - it was a "no charge" freebie. As a parable, this reveals how the judgment began with a gentle warning. I was led to write about that quake here: The Twelfth Orbit of Neptune and the Earthquake under Christchurch

Since that time, the city has experienced many, many more quakes (upwards of 4000 "aftershocks"). The one that struck at lunchtime on February 22 was considered an aftershock of the big one that struck on September 3rd last year. See these as being directly related, one to the other. Even though the magnitude of the quake on the 22nd was "roughly 11 times weaker" than the one last September, the loss of life and damage to the city was notable! In a parable, the nature of this judgment is that it begins gently and escalates.

Recognizing some signal features underscores to the watchful that this is surely another warning and testimony of escalation in the consequences of failing to quickly embrace the One who washes with water by the Word (Ephesians 5), even submitting to a bit of rough scrubbing behind the ears, if you will. The 11 and 22 numeric combination mentioned above call out numbers that others have identified and emphasized, knowing these signal a flesh cutting or dividing among men.

I was led to write about bells and bell towers not long ago, and personally given two signs to assure that this matter was highlighted for special attention. Bells have long been leveraged by Satan in a pharmakeia scheme that intends through spells to bring forth an army of transhuman rebels in the earth. It will succeed! It has been noted (The Church Bells All Were Broken) that the bell towers of the institutions of Mystery Babylon seem to have been targeted in this action that would not very many years ago have been freely termed an act of God.

Here's something that speaks to me and I hope it does to you, too. Brother Herrin referenced a song called American Pie in that blog post titled, The Church Bells All Were Broken. He makes a number of observations about it in that post and I'll add one more, that the incident at The Mill happened when this song was released, as best I can recall. It was an instance of judgment within the church. It was a prophetic parable. It happened 40 years ago - the number of trial and testing. Now, the Christchurch quakes are a sign of present judgment, and this is my testimony. What it looks like is that we have arrived in the appointed season of judgment on the church and it warrants our full attention.

Here's one of the lines in the song lyrics. "February made me shiver/with every paper I'd deliver"

It's February and folks are shivering in the cold. It snowed here in Los Gatos a couple days ago - a VERY rare occurrence. Have you been reading the paper, the headline news? Does it make you shiver? The world is shaking, and the church is really at the center of it.

Look at the picture of the statue honoring the founder of Christchurch lying face down in the dirt. This is in Cathedral Square. Are you seeing what it means? It's not my Lord but one who compares to Nimrod and Nebuchadnezzar.

The loss in New Zealand is genuine and I don't want to discount it. I am not numb to the very real pain felt by those whose lives were and are touched by the quake. Yet, what's imperative is that you hear the message that the pain and loss it portends will be just as real and on a far greater scale with consequences extending beyond this mortal life.

Another sign with similar meaning had occurred in Washington DC a few days prior to the earthquake in Christchurch. See Strong winds topple National Christmas Tree. The National Christmas Tree has a national identity. It also is a Christmas Tree, which is in most people's minds the object linked to the Christian church that is perhaps second only to the cross. Today, it has become a wider symbol around the globe of a season of gift exchanges and feasting, mammon and carnality. Really, few things say "Mystery Babylon" quite like the National Christmas Tree. That it has fallen over is a picture of the judgment that has come on the "Babylon" church and on this national Babylon.

7) Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8) And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9) And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Revelation 14:7-9

This is not the first time a National Christmas Tree has fallen, but when some numbers are considered the witness is plain enough. This tree that many connect with the birth of Christ fell in its 33rd year, the age of the Lord when he gave His life for a sacrifice. It represents the church of His body. Remember the recent sign of the Chilean mine incident and its 33 men who were trapped? This tree was set in place at the White House in 1978. It lasted for 22 years to the end of the millennium, then another 11 years, presenting a set of 22 and 11 features. After it fell, it was quickly cleared, within seven hours. When the church is judged, and it is being judged, it will not survive its pagan form but will be turned into mulch. Those with eyes that see will note the destiny of the wild olive branches in Romans 11:21-22, which we are assured will be broken off. Mulch is useful, but it will be far better an end for those who heed the call to come out from among those who will become as mulch.

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.
Revelation 18:4

Do You Have Your Green Pass? Bunkers Being Built Nationwide

The Intel Hub
By Alex Thomas and Shepard Ambellas
Feb. 27, 2011

According to a video that just surfaced on Youtube, the government and/or private entities and/or agencies could potentially be gearing up for a massive disaster of great proportions.

Add in the fact that FEMA has ordered 140 million packets of food, body bags, and blankets it seems clear that at the very least our government believes a disaster is set to happen.

Apparently a company called American Reassurance Communities is offering citizens the ability to purchase your green pass for $75,000.00 a year, retaining your very own underground condo in underground communities worldwide.

You can even bring your friends or family along for a cool $50,000.00 per person a year extra.

What type disaster could they be preparing for?

This is a conversation with a guy that installs bunkers nationwide. He confirms a lot of the doubts we had……I hope people are preparing because, preparation for something to come that doesn’t is still better than sitting back and not heeding the warning. One love!

DNA "Genetic Patdown" Introduced to Airports by DHS

NetBio -- Rapid DNA Analysis Solutions
Nicholas West
Activist Post

A new level of invasive screening is scheduled for airports this summer: a portable DNA scanner to conduct on-site, real-time genetic testing.

This technology is being implemented under the cover of combating human trafficking, illegal immigration, and finding missing persons, but Richard Seldon of NetBio, creator of the scanners, clearly states that "DNA information has the potential to become part of the fabric of day-to-day life." In an interview with Katie Drummond who broke this story for The Daily, Seldon envisions additional applications in emergency rooms, food safety tests, and law enforcement.

After touching your junk, TSA now wants to scan and harvest your DNA

Monday, February 28, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) As if it's not enough for the TSA to feel you up at the airport, now they're experimenting with rapid results DNA scanners that can scan and analyze your DNA using just a drop of saliva. Spit at the TSA agent who is molesting you, in other words, and they can use that saliva to scan your DNA and then store it in a government database.

Why would they want to do that? We can only imagine. Remember, it was Alex Jones who broke the story about hospitals secretly taking blood samples of babies and handing them over to the federal government for use in a national genetic database (

The government routinely steals genetic material from people for its own nefarious purposes, as does the pharmaceutical industry. For example, the medical industry's so-called "Hela cells" which have been exploited for decades by vaccine and drug companies, were harvested and stolen decades ago from Henrietta Lacks without her permission or consent ( Hela cells are the foundation of hundreds of billions of dollars in profit for Big Pharma, and they are all based on DNA theft perpetrated by the pharmaceutical industry.

Harvesting your DNA at the airport

Now that the TSA is experimenting with portable DNA scanners, their real agenda becomes apparent: They will use airport security checkpoints to harvest DNA from the public in order to build up their government "bio bank" database of stolen DNA.

Of course, they will assure the public that they aren't storing the DNA information ...and the naked body scanners don't store images, either. Oh yeah, and the TSA's security procedures make air travel safer, too, if you can believe that.

Our source for this story is a report called "Genetic Patdown" published at ( That story reveals that a company called NetBio manufactures the portable DNA scanning devices.

That same story also reveals that the TSA rolled out these DNA screening devices without even checking with the privacy committee of the DHS. Jim Harper, who serves on that committee, is even quoted in the story saying, "We're plunging into the unknown here."

But we aren't actually. It's not unknown. History has seen this before. It's called Nazi Germany. It's called the "Police State" approach to security: Use the power of big government to target the People as if they were all criminals. Then force them at gunpoint to consent to illegal searches and violations of their privacy. Do it all under the name of "homeland security" -- or Heimatschutz in German -- and keep the American people afraid by terrorizing them with occasional scary-sounding security alerts based on staged terrorism events that are often planned, organized and carried out by the FBI!

Another Insurgent Candidate Takes on the Establishment in KY

Candidate for Kentucky Governorship drawing comparisons to Ron and Rand Paul. He's an advocate for liberty who homeschools his children and supports industrial hemp.

KY Governor candidate Phil Moffett and family

Activist Post

Kentucky stepped into the national spotlight when the state’s voters stunned the establishment by electing Rand Paul to the US Senate. His opponent was the anointed golden boy, backed and endorsed by senate powerbroker Mitch McConnell and neo-con kingpin Dick Cheney. Kentuckians, angry at the abuses of the establishment, stood up for liberty and Paul won by a landslide.

Now that we're in the political off-season, not many people are paying attention to the Gubernatorial race in Kentucky -- but maybe they should be. In the Commonwealth of Kentucky, an attractive anti-establishment candidate, Phil Moffett, is looking to independent-minded voters to help make him governor. Liberty activists, who understand that genuine change can only happen in local politics, are energized to pounce on the off-season opportunity to leave the establishment in awe of people power once again.

The Mind Bending Close Encounters of the Third Kind/DIA Connection

Rabbit Hole

LUCUS 2/25/11 11:42AM CST

I'm not going to get into any conjecture about what you are about to see because it will be a futile attempt at logic. What I will say is that the Rabbit Hole seems like a bottomless pit and just when you think you're near the bottom, surprise, another 20 stories to go.

Here is where the lines get blurred between what's real, and what's just plain spooky.

The first thing I want you to note is that Close Encounters of the Third Kind was released in 1977. I was only 8 when this movie hit theaters.

In the movie there is a particular scene. In that scene there are many scientists who are trying to figure out a signal sent from space. The signal is a series of numbers that appear on a computer screen and are printed out on paper.

Here is where it just gets really strange.

The numbers that are being sent by the aliens to humans are coordinates. In the movie, the coordinates point to Devil's Tower, but in real life they point to something even more strange. Here are the numbers displayed in the movie.

(Screen shot below)

104 44 30 40 36 10

If you take those numbers and punch them into Google Earth like this W104' 44' 30' N40' 36' 10' it takes you to a very familiar place. YOU MUST PUT THE TICK MARKS AND THE WEST AND NORTH HEADINGS.

Those GPS coordinate will take you right smack dab in the very middle of Denver New World Airport. (Screen shot below)

Back when Close Encounters of the Third Kind was made the Denver Airport was nothing more than a farmer's field. That airport would not be built at that location FOR 16 YEARS!

In the movie, those coordinates are where humans first make contact with the aliens.

That's all I'm going to say about that.

UPDATE --------

While most people are pulling up DIA right in the center, there are some reports that people are pulling up a farm house about 50 Miles away from the airport. I know it is true because a friend of mine told me he also pulled up the house near the airport. He also has a newer version of Google Earth than I do so I suspect that's where the differences are.

The version of Google Earth I am running is 5.1.3533.1731

I don't know why some pull up DIA and others pull up a farm house close by. I just know that when I do it on my computer, when Floyd, and foolmetwice, and many others try it on their computers, they pull up DIA also.

This was brought to my attention by a thread posted on the Rabbit Hole forum

Declaration By President Obama And Prime Minister Harper Of Canada To Biometrically ID You

Released earlier this month with little fanfare, the United States has partnered with Canada to use biometric software to track North American citizens. The goal is to implement the use of “biometric chips” to keep track of the denizens of North America. In the four page declaration released by the White House earlier this month, the Obama administration has partnered with Canada to create the technical standards “for the collection, transmission, and matching of biometrics that enable the sharing of information on travelers in real time.” Legitimate travelers, that is. Again, this is about control, not security. And this is about the creation of a North American Union at the expense of national sovereignty for a global society.

Darpa’s Cheetah-Bot Designed to Chase Human Prey


By Adam Rawnsley

Perhaps you thought the four-legged BigDog robot wasn’t eerily lifelike enough. That’ll change soon. BigDog’s makers are working on a new quadruped that moves faster than any human and is agile enough to “chase and evade.”

Boston Dynamics, maker of the Army’s BigDog robotic mule, announced today that Darpa has awarded it a contract to build a much faster and more fearsome animal-like robot, Cheetah.

As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human. In addition to raw speed, Cheetah’s makers promise that it will have the agility to make tight turns so that it can “zigzag to chase and evade” and be able to stop on a dime.

Cheetah builds off work on the company’s previous four legged animal bot, BigDog. It was built as a kind of unmanned pack mule, designed to carry equipment for troops on the battlefield. The robotic donkey could carry 300 lbs. over 13 miles on flat ground, take a swift kick and keep on moving. It’s creepy, lifelike movement can be seen on a number of videos online, climbing over hills and snow and hiking alongside soldiers, using GPS coordinates as its waypoints.

Aside from its unspecified military applications, Cheetah’s makers see it galloping to the rescue and building a brave new future in the fields of “emergency response, firefighting, advanced agriculture and vehicular travel.”

Think that’s creepy? Wait till you see its humanoid, Terminator look-alike buddy.

Meet Atlas, Cheetah’s humanoid pal. Atlas is supposed to look more or less like the T-800 series of Terminators, minus the head. Its designers say it’ll be able to walk like a human over rough terrain, crawling on its hands and knees when necessary and turning itself sideways to slip through any narrow passages it encounters. Headless, with a torso and two arms, it’s a step up from Boston Dynamics’ other biped, the lower-body-bot Petman.

Petman was built to test out chemical weapons protective suits for the Army by “walking, crawling and doing a variety of suit-stressing calisthenics” and “simulat[ing] human physiology.” Designers made it capable of walking heel-to-toe at 3.2 miles per hour and staying upright even after it gets pushed.

As the new models go into development, let’s hope Cheetah never develops a taste for human flesh and that Atlas doesn’t have any hard feelings about its predecessor being a poison-gas guinea pig for the Army.

FIRST EVER! – Austinites Outbid Police in Gun Buyback Counter-Program

February 27th, 2011

Today in Austin TX – Activists were successful in buying TRUNKS full of usable firearms that would have otherwise been destroyed (or ended up in the hands of “terrorists” – as we have seen before how cops confiscate guns and resell them to cartels…)

About 40 gun buyers, both independent and otherwise, stood in front of the Austin Police Gun Buyback Event offering CASH for the guns they were about to turn in to the city for food cards. As people rolled up, we approached them with our offers, and paid them hard cash after inspecting the guns to make sure they were operable. (the Police were unbelievably cooperative in the process)

I ended up with a 9mm for a fraction of what it would cost at a gun shop.

Media was in attendance, both local and international. They did seem somewhat confused by our DIRECT ACTION, as did some of the citizenry trying to TURN IN THEIR GUNS.

About 50% chose to sell them to us, rather than the police. Some simply sold broken guns for $100.00 worth of food. Think “Cash for Clunkers”… but with Guns. Your tax dollars at work folks.

Its not so funny that starving people turn in their guns, not criminals. Pop tarts do not protect Life Liberty and Property. (these were the signs I held)

Near the end, the police ran our of Food Cards, and were asking people to give them their guns for free. We were there til the end buying all we could.

I estimate about 3 – $4,000.00 was spent by our group.

The weapons will go to those who otherwise cannot affort a firearm, and they will pledge to do some service for the community, and freedom.

Thanks to Texans for Accountable Government for organizing the event, and to all who stood in the rain holding signs, and offering an alternaive to the city buy back program.

"If law fails, CIA will assassinate Assange" Paul Craig Roberts

YouTube -- RT

Judge Howard Riddle, the bane of Julian Assange’s existence for the past three months, has granted Sweden’s extradition request. The WikiLeaks founder has already repealed the ruling, but his worst fears have been cemented: the rape charges are going to follow him for the rest of his life, perhaps even after years of repeals. Former Reagan Administration Paul Craig Roberts says there is a concerted effort to shut Assange up. If the legal attempt fails, he’ll be assassinated by a CIA assassination team.

Government Promises to Cut Social Security in Urgent Compromise

Activist Post

It's official, national austerity measures are here! As Wisconsin protesters fill the streets because of lost rights and benefits to workers, the nation is gearing up to face similar losses with social security being cut. Comedian George Carlin warned us that this day would come:

"Now they're coming for your social security money . . . they want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street." -- George Carlin.

The debate has moved from whether or not to cut social security, to how many cuts, how much, and when they'll start. Threatened with the prospect of a government shutdown, Democrats are pushing for compromise by agreeing to cut social security to avert a manufactured "shutdown" disaster.

10 Health Insurance Companies Get ObamaCare Waivers -- for Their Own Employees

Signed Health Reform bill: Wiki Commons image
Fred Lucas
CNS News

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has granted waivers to 10 health insurance companies, including giants such as Cigna and Aetna and divisions of Blue Cross Blue Shield, from the requirements of the new health care law, also known as ObamaCare.

The waivers allow these companies to impose annual limits on the health coverage they provide to their employees. Under Obamacare, companies that do not get special waivers from the administration must phase out their caps on annual health-care benefits between now and 2014 when they must offer limitless annual benefits. The Obama administration began granting waivers to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act last September.

The health insurance company benefiting most from a special waiver from the Obamacare provision is Cigna Corp., which has 265,000 enrollees on its health plan. HHS approved Cigna a waiver on Sept. 26, 2010, allowing it to cap the health insurance benefits for those 265,000 employees.

Mother of 3 Arrested for Taking Pictures of Tourist Attraction at Airport

G. Edward Griffin: Woman is arrested for taking photos of an airport attraction while inside her car on a public road. She legally had a gun in her trunk (she had been to the shooting range) and $13,000 in her purse for her children's tuition in a private school. $5300 was missing when her purse was returned.

This case is a frightening example of what can happen when a photographer encounters ignorant bullies with badges. According to the complaint filed in Federal Court, Nancy Genovese, a mother of three, was driving home on County Road 31 past Gabreski Airport in Suffolk County. Gabreski Airport displays a decorative helicopter shell by the roadway to the public, which is visible to all who pass by.

Nancy Genovese stopped her car on the side of the road across the street from the airport in an area that is open and accessible to the public, and crossed over the road to the airport entryway that is also open and accessible to the public to take a picture of the helicopter display. While still in her car, she took a picture of the decorative helicopter shell with the intention of posting it on her personal “Support Our Troops” web page.

As Nancy Genovese was preparing to drive away, she was stopped and approached by Robert Iberger, a lieutenant with the Southampton Town Police. Lieutenant Iberger demanded to know why she was taking photographs. Nancy showed the lieutenant her camera, but Lieutenant Iberger grabbed her camera and handled it “without care”. In an attempt to prevent the lieutenant from damaging the camera, Nancy removed her memory card, which Lieutenant Iberger confiscated. To date, Nancy’s memory card still has not been returned to her.

Lieutenant Iberger demanded that Nancy remain where she is, and he refused to allow her to leave. At this time, Lieutenant Iberger notified the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office and the authorities at Gabreski Airport of Nancy’s presence outside the airport, and falsely and wrongfully informed them that she posed a terrorist threat.

Suffolk County Deputy Sheriff Robert Carlock responded to the scene, along with various members of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. When Deputy Carlock arrived, he placed cameras on the roof of his vehicle, aimed at Nancy Genovese and her 18 and 20 year old sons who had come to the scene at this point to help their mother. Deputy Carlock ordered all three of them to stand directly in front of the cameras, and not to move.

Officials from the airport, as well as other local and federal law enforcement agencies also responded, including, without limitation, the Southampton Police Department, the Westhampton Police Department, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security. Nancy was questioned on the side of the road for approximately five to six hours, from about 6pm until midnight, denied food or water, and denied the opportunity to use a restroom, all without having received any warnings as to her rights.

Agenda 21 Part III: Maryland County abolishes Agenda 21 – now it's your turn

James Simpson

February 23rd, 2011

Wildlands Map as Envisioned by UN Agenda 21
Photo: Dr. Michael Coffman

The November elections marked a sea change in the political landscape at every level of government nationwide. Right now, all eyes are focused on the Wisconsin standoff between Governor Scott Walker and the public employee unions. But under the radar, completely overlooked by the mass media, is the unprecedented move recently taken by newly-elected Carroll County, Maryland Commissioners Richard Rothschild, Robin Frazier, Haven Shoemaker, Dave Roush and Doug Howard, who abolished the County’s Office of Sustainability. They then voted unanimously to drop out of the UN’s International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). They are the first governmental organization to do so.

For those unfamiliar with the sustainable development agenda, this might not seem like much, but it is huge. If you have been following my recent series on the subject, you will know that local Sustainability offices, under the auspices of the ICLEI’s Local Governments for Sustainability, are the tiny, visible tip of the monstrous Agenda 21 sustainable development iceberg, the ultimate goal of which is to transform American society from the bottom up into a socialist ward of UN global governance. As of today, there are approximately 600 local governments in the US who have signed on to this Trojan Horse.

Minus one.

All the commissioners are to be commended for this bold decision. Predictably, the left is up in arms. The commissioners have already been challenged to a debate on their decision and the other side wants to bring in heavy hitters from the EPA and the Maryland Department of the Environment in an attempt to discredit the commission’s earth shattering (figuratively) move.

I think the commissioners took some skin.

Richard Rothschild led the charge. He campaigned on this issue, framing it, appropriately, as a matter of private property rights. In an American Thinker article he co-wrote last summer with Scott Strzelczyk, he explained that: “Sustainability has less to do with the environment, and everything to do with economics. It is an attack on capitalism, and an attack on America's middle class lifestyle.”

Rich recently discussed Agenda 21 in a radio address. Listen here. This is the kind of leadership that has been sorely lacking at all levels of government and hopefully his example and that of his fellow commissioners will embolden more such individuals to step forward before it is too late.

Following the election, Carroll County’s sustainability director saw the writing on the wall and opted for early retirement. He then began taking pot shots at the new commissioners in the local paper. After being party to the biggest attempted land grab in the county’s history under the “Smart Growth” banner, this clown had the gall to wonder aloud how anyone could believe a UN planning document marketed as “Smart Growth” could affect Carroll County. I have a suggestion for him: read the documents.

Rich responded to these attacks with an in-depth explanation of Sustainable Development published in the local paper:

Sustainability invokes government power to enforce activists' views of environmentalism. They want to replace farmers', ranchers' and other landowners' concept of stewardship with government-centric control. It merges environmentalism and socialism to expand government into every aspect of our lives, including land use, food production, housing, transportation, manufacturing, energy rationing and even health care.

He identifies the ICLEI for what it really is:

…an organization with extreme beliefs on global warming that promotes United Nations' big-government socio-economic policies. The UN Millennium Papers caution activists not to mention the UN Agenda because of potential American backlash, and instruct, "So, we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth."

Court case warns EPA could 'own' your land!

Petition to Supremes cites danger of 'ruinous' compliance order fines

By Bob Unruh

Mike and Chantell Sackett

A legal team asking the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in an Idaho controversy is warning landowners that under the compliance order procedures being used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency virtually anyone could be told to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in permit fees – or face hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and penalties – over ordinary home construction work.

A petition for certiorari has been submitted to the court by Pacific Legal, an organization working on behalf of the Sackett family of Idaho.

They own a half-acre lot in a residential area near Priest Lake and wanted to build a home. But after excavation work was begun the EPA "swooped in" with a "compliance order" that requires them to undo the excavation and restore the "wetlands," and then leave it for three years at which point they could seek a "permit" that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Or they could wait for the EPA to prosecute the alleged Clean Water Act violations, which could result in penalties of $25,000-plus per day.

According to officials with Pacific Legal, the Sacketts' land has no standing water or any continuously flowing water, and they would like an opportunity to challenge the EPA's "wetlands" determination in court.

However, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the most overturned court in the land, said before a court could issue a ruling on the EPA's order, the family would have to go through a years-long, $200,000-plus process of formally applying for a federal wetlands permit.

According to the petition, "Ignoring the compliance order is no option, for several reasons. First, the CWA imposes significant civil penalties for violating compliance orders. … Just one month of noncompliance puts the landowner at risk of civil liability of $750,000. A year's worth of noncompliance puts the liability at $9,000,000."

WND calls seeking comment from the Environmental Protection Agency did not produce a response.

"The Sacketts are being hit with an unconscionable price tag for the right to challenge the feds' power play," Damien Schiff, lead attorney in the case, said in a prepared statement.

"Basic principles of due process say that the Sacketts deserve their day in court, to argue for their property rights. As we're arguing to the U.S. Supreme Court, putting an exorbitant price tag on the pursuit of justice, and the defense of property rights, is flat-out unconstitutional."

Mike and Chantell Sackett explained their situation themselves:

"The issue in this case is simple, but critically important to all property owners, and everyone who values fair play and due process," Schiff said. "When bureaucrats try to impose their will on private property, shouldn't the owners be permitted their day in court, to challenge the government's claim of control?"

Said Chantell, "They've stopped our life … I just think they're bullying us. I think they do whatever they want."

The video, produced by Pacific Legal, points out that the EPA could exercise such jurisdiction over any parcel of land anywhere in the nation.

Indiana Official: "Use Live Ammunition" Against Wisconsin Protesters

Mother Jones

A conservative deputy AG let his emotions get out of hand. It wasn't the first time.

Wed Feb. 23, 2011 12:01 AM PST

Update: The Indiana attorney general's office has confirmed to Mother Jones that Jeff Cox was terminated Wednesday. The full statement and screen captures of the now-defunct blog are posted here.

On Saturday night, when Mother Jones staffers tweeted a report that riot police might soon sweep demonstrators out of the Wisconsin capitol building—something that didn't end up happening—one Twitter user sent out a chilling public response: "Use live ammunition."

From my own Twitter account, I confronted the user, JCCentCom. He tweeted back that the demonstrators were "political enemies" and "thugs" who were "physically threatening legally elected officials." In response to such behavior, he said, "You're damned right I advocate deadly force." He later called me a "typical leftist," adding, "liberals hate police."

Only later did we realize that JCCentCom was a deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana.

As one of 144 attorneys in that office, Jeff Cox has represented the people of his state for 10 years. And for much of that time, it turns out, he's vented similar feelings on Twitter and on his blog, Pro Cynic. In his nonpolitical tweets and blog posts, Cox displays a keen litigator's mind, writing sharply and often wittily on military history and professional basketball. But he evinces contempt for political opponents—from labeling President Obama an "incompetent and treasonous" enemy of the nation to comparing "enviro-Nazis" to Osama bin Laden, likening ex-Labor Secretary Robert Reich and Service Employees International Union members to Nazi "brownshirts" on multiple occasions, and referring to an Indianapolis teen as "a black teenage thug who was (deservedly) beaten up" by local police. A "sensible policy for handling Afghanistan," he offered, could be summed up as: "KILL! KILL! ANNIHILATE!"

Early Sunday, Mother Jones sent an email to Cox's work address at the Indiana attorney general's office, asking if the Twitter and blog comments were his, and if he could provide context for some of them. He responded shortly after from a personal email address: "For 'context?' Or to silence me? All my comments on twitter & my blog are my own and no one else's. And I can defend them all.

"[Y]ou will probably try to demonize me," he wrote, "but that comes with the territory."

To be sure, in the current political climate, partisan rhetoric has run hot online—and the Constitution guarantees everyone's right to such rhetoric. Nonetheless, a spokesman for the Indiana attorney general's office, Bryan Corbin, told Mother Jones that Cox's statements were "inflammatory," and he promised "an immediate review" of the matter. "We do not condone any comments that would threaten or imply violence or intimidation toward anyone," Corbin added.

The incident seems all the more troubling now that the public-sector union fight playing out in Wisconsin is now headed to other states—including Indiana, where GOP senators Tuesday passed a bill that would abolish collective bargaining for state teachers. (Indiana's Republican governor walked back his support of the measure Tuesday after taking stock of the opposition.) Cox's public writings made it clear that he isn't a member of a public-service union, and he has no love for those who are.

It’s Coming – “If You Believe It Or Not, It Doesn’t Matter”

Internet radio host Charlie McGrath of Wide Awake News warns that for those looking for a singular set of events that presage a paradigm shift into the far-from-equilibrium event we could refer to as “collapse,” then simply pay attention to what’s going on around the world and right here at home. Though we’ve previously discussed that the collapse occurred in 2008 and we are in the midst of the big bang’s explosion as of right now, history will mark certain events as having been the defining moments that changed the world as we know it. These events will often times play out in perceptively slow motion because we’re living them minute-by-minute and day-by-day, but in hindsight, they will be clearly understood as the harbingers of the disaster that followed.

When people are broke and hungry, and without a government capable of managing the crisis, then the people lose it and all hell breaks loose. This is not conjecture – it’s historical fact. The question to answer is: are we really at this point in our history today? Is all hell about to break loose?

Charlie McGrath weighs in:

(Video follows excerpts)

My message is simple, if you haven’t prepared – you know what, I don’t even know if you have time.

…These high prices in food are truly what’s causing the unrest around the world. The high prices to fill your belly is what’s causing the Egyptians to riot, causing the people in Libya to riot. The absolute and utter failure of their governments to represent the people of those nations has led to them being hungry and they’re pushing back.

That is coming to this country. If you believe it or not, it doesn’t matter. It is coming to this country.

It’s starting out in Wisconsin. These people are out in the streets protesting by the tens of thousands right now because the government is telling them what they can and can’t do with negotiating their contracts. When it becomes a matter of ‘they can’t put food on their table because we’re having a 100% increase inside of a year in their food bill’, the push back is going to look a little different than it does in Wisconsin right now and it’s going to look a whole lot more like it does in Libya and Egypt.

I’ve never come out in a video and said “this is it, this is the collapse.” But I’m saying it now. This is it. The world is coming apart by the actions of a bunch of central banksters. They’ve tried to cover it up. They’ve tried to pretend it isn’t their fault. They’ve tried to pretend the world economy is getting better. And, a lot of people fell for their con game. But guess what? The rubber is going to hit the road no matter where you’re at.

We have been within a collapse of the world as we know it since 2008. The unsustainable system based on unlimited consumption made possible through pulling forward decades of time-energy yield no longer exists. Both, individuals and governments, have pulled forward and leveraged too much, and the system has broken down. For those who failed to realize what was happening around them, and to this day haven’t a clue that what they are seeing are warning signs and symptoms of a collapse, it may be too late.

  • One eighth of the US population required food stamps to survive, and this dependence on the government for basic necessities is accelerating.
  • Multiple millions of homes are either in foreclosure or defaulting on payments, not to mention the millions more that will come as the second wave of the mortgage meltdown accelerates throughout the rest of this year and into 2012.
  • Millions of people have lost their jobs, and many millions more are no longer counted in the official statistics.
  • The US government, via The Federal Reserve, has taken on some $30 Trillion in debt for stimulus, bailouts and emergency measures that have failed to recover the system – and perhaps make it even worse through the leverage and manipulations in financial markets.

It can be argued that Americans have become apathetic and lack any motivation to take to the streets to enact any real, long-lasting change. This is because up until this point, Americans have, for the most part, been comfortable. We’ve had a roof over our heads. We’ve had decent, quality food in our stomachs. We’ve actively engaged in a community driven reality show known as Keeping Up with the Joneses. This has been life in America – until now. For many, the Joneses game has now ended in catastrophic personal debt collapse. Luxurious cars, iPods, and fancy weekend dinners have been replaced with tight budgets, FM radio and frozen pizza – a psychologically destructive effect for those who didn’t see it coming.

When the time finally comes that tight budgets no longer help, and it becomes difficult to impossible to put three squares a day on the dinner table, then the people will assuredly get off their couches. Apathy will be replaced with desperation, and subsequently, rage. The rage will, sooner rather than later, be manifest on the streets of America. Higher crime, more violence, riots – it’s all headed our way.

We facetiously referred to the protests in Wisconsin as Egypt in Milwaukee when we reported that the governor had alerted the National Guard to the possibility of riots resulting from the decision to cut off collective bargaining rights for Unions. Jesse Jackson and other progressive leaders have made the same claim – that Wisconsin is Egypt in America.

Realistically, we haven’t seen anything close to Egypt yet. The unions and others protesting in the streets right now are but a foreshadowing of what’s to come from those who can no longer feed their families. Austerity measures – translated as government spending cuts – are happening, voluntarily through political action as we are seeing in Wisconsin, or involuntarily through free market defaults and/or monetary debasement as we are witnessing with out-of-control price increases for essential goods.

Most choose not to disturb their preconceived notions of the American Dream – many are simply non-contemplative, meaning they don’t even realize that there is a problem or that what they are seeing are warning signs of what’s to come. Regardless of whether they believe it or not, it really doesn’t matter.

Dead Baby Dolphins Showing Up In Mass In The Gulf Of Mexico

NotForSale2NWO | Feb 24, 2011

This is exactly what we (TheIntelHub) have warned would happen.....

Baby bottlenose dolphins are washing up dead in record numbers on the shores of Alabama and Mississippi, alarming scientists and a federal agency charged with monitoring the health of the Gulf of Mexico.

Moby Solangi, the executive director of the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (IMMS) in Gulfport, Mississippi, said Thursday he's never seen such high death numbers.

"I've worked with marine mammals for 30 years, and this is the first time we've seen such a high number of calves," he said. "It's alarming."

Most now know that the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed), is a private central bank owned by International Bankers. Although the Fed masquerades as a Government institution it is no more a Government institution than Federal Express. Even though the Fed performs all the functions of a Central Bank, its name misleads the public into believing that it operates on their behalf.

The U.S. Constitution clearly states in Article 1 Section 8 that: “The Congress shall have Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures,” under the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 the private bankers can now create money, actually credit, and loan it to the U.S. with interest.

With every U.S. dollar borrowed from the Fed, a credit is recorded on the Fed’s behalf and a debit, including interest, is posted on behalf of the American public. The actual U.S. national debt owed to the International Bankers who make up the Federal Reserve Board, including the IOUs in the Social Security Fund, the IOUs in the Medicare Fund and all the rest of the debts normally uncounted in government statistics is approximately $62 Trillion.

On March 18, 1988, Ronald Reagan implemented Executive Order 12631, called The Working Group of Financial Markets; informally known as the Plunge Protection Team. Former Federal Reserve Board member Robert Heller explains E.O. 12631 in a Wall Street Journal article: “The Fed could support the stock market directly by buying market averages in the futures market in order to stabilize the market as a whole.”

To simplify Mr. Heller’s definition, E.O. 12631 enables the Fed, via the working group, to manipulate U.S. stock markets through the use of government (taxpayer) funds. The Fed can also use taxpayer money to buy stocks and other investments such as stock index futures, even though the law strictly forbids these manipulative and market-controlling acts.

On October 6, 2008, Paula Reid of CBS News stated in an article called Market Crisis of 2008, “The working group issued a statement indicating that it was taking multiple actions available to it in order to stabilize the financial system. The government (actually, the Fed) may wind up owning shares in the firms to which it has provided loans, as they will receive warrants as collateral for these loans.”

This means, the Fed, a private central bank owned and controlled by private businessmen, can at-will use taxpayer dollars to manipulate the stock market to enrich themselves.

This is Fascism, although corporatism would be a more accurate representation.

According to a government website,, “The mission” of the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), “is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.” Since the inception of the SEC in 1934, Goldman Sachs has provided the nation with a SEC Commissioner, a Chairman of the SEC, and a Head of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.

In an article dated April 7, 2010, CBS News stated, “The revolving door between Goldman and government reveals at least forty-eight former employees, lobbyists or advisers at the highest reaches of power both in Washington and around the world.”

The CBS News article continues, “For example, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is a former Goldman CEO; Arthur Levitt, the head of the SEC is a now a Goldman adviser; and former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt is now a paid lobbyist for the firm.”

Goldman employees have maintained strategic positions within the U.S. government since 1965. Goldman hires former politicians and civil servants, as readily as it supplies them. Clinton had 8 previous Goldman employees in key decision-making positions in his Administration, Bush had 19, and Obama has 14. There is no distinguishable difference in political parties, once a donation is accepted the individual is compromised.

Henry Paulson was Chief Operating Officer of Goldman Sachs averaging around $37 million a year and at that time he was also the owner of approximately $700 million in Goldman Sachs’ shares. Paulson, the great public servant that he is, left Goldman Sachs multi-million dollar salary to become U.S. Secretary of the Treasury at a salary of $174,000 a year. On September 19, 2008, Paulson, along with Chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, obtained $700 billion dollars from Congress. Paulson, given complete authority of this money by the House, Senate, and the president of the U.S. gave American Investment Group (AIG) $200 billion, of which AIG gave Goldman Sachs $12.9 billion, enriching Goldman Sachs shareholders, including that great public servant, Henry Paulson, handsomely.

According to New York Times, May 7, 2009, Stephen Friedman, another great public servant, was a member of Goldman’s board at the same time he was chairman of the New York Fed. Friedman helped to put together the deal under which AIG’s CDS counter-parties were paid out at 100 cents on the dollar. By approving Goldman’s request to become a bank holding company, Friedman helped facilitate the most profitable advantage to Goldman’s existence thus far. He then inexplicably bought tens of thousands of Goldman shares in the open market—a clear conflict of interest given his position at the Fed—resulting in his resignation shortly afterwards.

On May 13, Jonathan Weil for Bloomberg wrote: “Rigged-Market Theory Scores a Perfect Quarter. He goes on to explain, “In a feat that would seem to defy all odds, Goldman said its daily net trading revenue topped $100 million 35 times last quarter out of 63 trading days.”

A May 13, 2010 Bloomberg article states, “The odds that you’d post a daily net gain 63 times in a row, would be about one in 5.7 billion. Even if you had a 95 percent likelihood of a winning day, you would have only a 3.9 percent chance of doing it 63 trading sessions in a row.

Considering Goldman Sachs’ million dollars an hour winning streak for 63 days straight (it was not just Goldman, it was also JPMorgan, Citigroup and Bank of America that disclosed similar eye-popping stats) we can better understand how they pulled off this thievery. And whose name do we discover as a major shareholder in all these conglomerates? None other than the notorious trillionaire David Rockefeller.

Weil continues, “If a too-big-to-fail bank’s traders were able to make money every day of a quarter, were they really trading in any normal sense of the word? Or would vacuuming be a more accurate term?”

According to the Wall Street Journal, April 17, 2010, “Goldman Sachs Group Inc. was charged with deceiving clients by selling them mortgage securities secretly designed by a hedge-fund firm, Paulson and Co., who made a killing betting on the housing market’s collapse.” The bank did not disclose the role of the hedge fund, that helped put together the deal as part of its bet against housing. And while Goldman paid a $550 million fine to settle the case, the SEC did not charge Paulson with any wrongdoing.

Zubi Diamond, author of the “Wizards of Wall Street,” states, "The hedge fund short sellers can now crash the market, panic shareholders out of their stocks, buy to cover their short positions for hefty profits, and then buy back in at the bottom to open long positions and then recover the whole market indexes to normal levels. These market manipulators have the ability to drive prices down and then drive them back up, all within a 15-minute period."

Many may have seen the tense inquisition between the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and Goldman Sachs. But most aren’t aware that many of those asking the questions have been recipients of Goldman’s political donations. It’s the finest display of political theater, smoke and mirrors, a dog and pony show that keeps the gullible public appeased, thinking that they are experiencing history in the making.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, ten of these senators have together received more than $1million in campaign contributions from a combination of Goldman’s political action committees and its employees and their families. Since the SEC filed no criminal charges, the entire hearing was a charade—political theater at its best. Civil charges result only in fines, when prison is warranted. At $1 million an hour for 63 days, a $550 million fine is merely a payoff to public officials, a cost of doing business and a green light for Goldman to continue its fraudulent business-as-usual.

Over the years, various loyal men in Congress have introduced Bills to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and to redeem control of our money system. None of them has been acted upon by our alleged representatives who are sworn to uphold our Constitution.

Rep. Ron Paul, one of the only members of the House (or Senate for that matter) worth his salt, sponsored H.R. 1207, a bill requiring that the Federal Reserve be opened to audit by Congress. The plan compiled over 300 co-sponsors in the House before being sent to committee.

But in a later interview with a Bloomberg reporter, Paul stated, “The teeth have been ripped out of the bill and there’s nothing left; it’s been gutted. This is not a partisan issue. People all over the country want to know what the Fed is up to, and this legislation would have helped them do that.”

I am no financial advisor, but I certainly have enough financial sense to know when the markets are rigged.

Like a giant octopus, the tentacles of corruption have infiltrated the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial branches of our government. The bankers, the corporate heads and the public officials are drinking from the same financial trough, funded by the unsuspecting public. Thus, an ominous darkness is engulfing America like a fog, and I don’t see even a flicker of light able to dispel it.

Nevertheless, for the believer in Christ, this is not our world; this is not our home. We are sojourners journeying to a heavenly, spiritual kingdom. Our hope is not anchored in this dark, failing, ominous world or any person residing in it. For we who serve Christ Jesus have a home awaiting us that out shines the sun, and our hope rest in Him. We serve the Father of lights and in Him there is no shadow or darkness. And whether He chooses to save us from the mounting depravity of this world is His choice alone. For Christ’s prayer to the Father was not to take His followers out of the world, but to [spiritually] protect them from the evil one while they are in the world. So here is a promise we can depend on, and live for, that He will never leave us nor forsake us and He will be with us even unto the end of this age.


The Black Sheep tries to warn its friends with the truth it has seen, unfortunately herd mentality kicks in for the Sheeple, and they run in fear from the black sheep and keep to the safety of their flock.

Having tried to no avail to awaken his peers, the Black Sheep have no other choice but to unite with each other and escape the impending doom.

What color Sheep are you?
