The Dawn of a New Era Series #4: Bright Hopes and Bleak Situations

Hello everyone!

There are lots of important material to review in this compilation, some very positive ones and, sadly, some very negative ones.

But let's start with what appears to me as the most worrisome development...

US Mandatory MILITARY DRAFT 18-42 quietly snuck in! As described at on February 14, 2006, Congressman Charles Rangel (NY) introduced a bill (Universal National Service Act of 2006 - HR 4752 IH) aiming at drafting everyone - men and women alike - from the ages of 18 to 42 into the military for a minimum period of 2 years. Or to quote the bill: "To provide for the common defense by requiring all persons in the United States, including women, between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." The House is to convene on June 6 (06/06/06] to debate and possibly adopt this bill, that is, unless a vast public outcry succeeds in derailing this insanity, which you can do by writing a letter of protest to your congress person through or

Quite portentous... Much more for your attention below ;-)

"In my opinion, Dennis Kucinich, Russ Feingold and Cindy Sheenan, deserves the JFK award, more so than Murtha does! While Murtha’s recent stand to bring our troops home immediately is admirable and commendable, and I totally agree with it, it’s easy when war is unpopular to be against it but it takes REAL "profiles in courage" to stand up and be against it from the start, like Dennis Kucinich was, who also convinced 126 of his colleagues to vote against war Resolution BEFORE the war started, when it was unpopular to do so! People call you names, unpatriotic, spit at you, etc. look at what truly patriotic Cindy Sheenan has had to endure! No one has been more against ALL of these illegal, immoral wars than Dennis has; yet he doesn’t get the credit he deserves!"

U.S. airstrike on Afghan village kills dozens (May. 23 2006)
Up to 80 suspected Taliban militants and an unknown number of civilians died after U.S.-led coalition forces bombed a village in southern Afghanistan. U.S. warplanes reportedly dropped bombs on an Islamic religious school and homes in which Taliban fighters had taken up position during the strike late Sunday and early Monday. "I heard the noise of the jets. Then they started bombing the entire village," said one man, speaking in Pashto.The attack happened in Punwai district, a stubborn stronghold for the Taliban.The village is also known by the name Hajiyan. It is made up of about 30-35 large mud-brick compounds, each housing an extended family with up to 50 members. (...) Khalid said the strikes had left around 16 civilians dead. However, CTV's Janis Mackey Frayer, said people at the local hospital "are saying perhaps hundreds have been killed."Reporting from Kandahar, Mackey Frayer said it was "very difficult to get information" as "the village has been blocked off." (...) Many of the wounded sought treatment at Kandahar city's Mirwaise Hospital, where local doctors told reporters that children were among those injured. One survivor from the village, who was cradling her wounded baby, told AP that 10 people were killed in her home, including three or four children."There were dead people everywhere," AP quoted her as saying.

(...) Villagers reported burying about 35 "unknown people," meaning militants from outside their area, he said, and about 11 civilians were wounded.The estimate of 34 dead civilians more than doubled the number given by the governor of Kandahar and President Hamid Karzai, who said that 16 had died.

Hunger strike spreads among Guantanamo prisoners (May 30, 2006)
MIAMI - Seventy-five prisoners at the US naval base in Guantanamo were on a hunger strike today, joining a few who have refused food and been force-fed since August, a military official said. Commander Robert Durand, a spokesman for the Guantanamo detention operation, called the hunger strike an attempt by the prisoners to gain media attention and pressure the United States to release about 460 men held there as enemy combatants. Detainees are counted as hunger strikers if they miss nine consecutive meals, and most of the 75 hit that mark yesterday, Durand said. Most are refusing food but continuing to drink liquids, he said. One of the recent group is being force-fed through a tube inserted through the nose and into the stomach, as are three others who have been on a hunger strike since August 8, Durand said. CLIP

Bush "Planted Fake News Stories on American TV"
Federal authorities are actively investigating dozens of American television stations for broadcasting items produced by the Bush administration and major corporations, and passing them off as normal news. Some of the fake news segments talked up success in the war in Iraq, or promoted the companies' products. Investigators from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are seeking information about stations across the country after a report produced by a campaign group detailed the extraordinary extent of the use of such items. The report, by the non-profit group Centre for Media and Democracy, found that over a 10-month period at least 77 television stations were making use of the faux news broadcasts, known as Video News Releases (VNRs). Not one told viewers who had produced the items. CLIP

Divine Strake Blast Delayed Indefinitely (May 27)
A scheduled protest turned into a celebration outside the Mercury entrance to the Nevada Test Site this weekend. According to the Associated Press, about 300 anti-nuclear demonstrators gathered at the Nevada Test Site to celebrate the indefinite postponement of a massive explosion that they feared would spread radioactivity. - Carson City - A massive explosion that would have produced a mushroom cloud over the Nevada Test Site was delayed Friday by federal officials. An attorney representing groups opposed to the test of conventional explosives said he now believes the project is dead. (...) The test, which would detonate a 700-ton bomb containing ammonium nitrate and fuel oil at the test site, 85 miles northwest of Las Vegas, originally was planned for June 2. It then was announced that the test would not go off before June 23. Critics of the blast expressed concern that radioactive particles left over from above-ground nuclear testing at the site in the 1950s and 1960s could be kicked up into the air from the above-ground blast of conventional explosives. (...) "Atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons by several countries in the 1950s and 1960s resulted in the dispersion of radioactive fallout throughout the northern hemisphere. The efforts of the Nevada Site Office are focused on explaining, in a means clearly understandable to all, what background radiation from this fallout means with respect to the contemplated Divine Strake experiment."

New Estimate of Venezuela’s Total Oil Reserves Makes It the Grandest of Grand Prizes for US
(...) From what we know for sure plus what we think we may know about Venezuelan "total" oil reserves, I suggest the reader first take a seat and buckle up. In previous articles, I reported Venezuela may have reserves of about 350 billion barrels if all their known heavy and light crude are counted. That total is far more than is now officially recognized by OPEC which means unofficially the country has greater reserves than Saudi Arabia by that number alone.But wait, there’s more, a lot more. Palast reports a US Energy Department expert believes Venezuela holds 90% of the world’s super-heavy tar oil reserves - an estimated total of 1,360,000,000,000 (1.36 trillion) barrels. Let me repeat that - 1.36 trillion barrels. That alone is more oil than Hubbert believed 50 years ago lay under the entire planet. CLIP

Mysterious glowing clouds targeted by NASA (26 May 2006)
Glowing, silvery blue clouds that have been spreading around the world and brightening mysteriously in recent years will soon be studied in unprecedented detail by a NASA spacecraft. The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) mission will be the first satellite dedicated to studying this enigmatic phenomenon. Due to launch in late 2006, it should reveal whether the clouds are caused by global warming, as many scientists believe. "Noctilucent" clouds, which glow at night, form in the upper atmosphere, at an altitude of about 80 kilometres, and their glow can be seen just after sunset or just before sunrise. "Even though the Sun's gone down and you're in darkness, the clouds are so high up, the Sun is still illuminating them," explains AIM principal investigator James Russell at Hampton University in Virginia, US. (...) Some scientists speculate that the clouds might actually help mitigate global warming, says Russell. "If these clouds were to continue to grow and cover broad areas of Earth, they would form something like a thin, semi-transparent umbrella," he told New Scientist. "They would reduce the amount of solar rays making it to the ground, so they could actually reduce the effects of global warming." CLIP

Subject: RE: Meditation Focus #152: Envisioning and Co-creating a New Earth
Date: 28 May 2006

Dear Jean,

I have started a number of emails to you but did not complete and send them because your compilations run so deep that I have to go deep into myself to respond. It has been uncanny to me how your Meditation Focuses correspond with my own personal spiritual struggles.

You can consider the following feedback or personal rantings to which you may choose to respond. The last approximately two years for me have been alternations between extremes. One is what I sometimes call, to myself, the Beautiful Dream. I go there sometimes through visions or during those times when I feel waves of incredible energies of Peace and Love flooding our planet, our beautiful Earth. No animals are ever hurt in the coming world. Children's laughter rings out everywhere. New technologies are created with good will and through friendships, technologies that avail themselves of the energies around us, technologies that do not harm any part of creation. No poisons being put into Momma Earth. Art and music and dance and all forms of celebrating being in physical form a central part of life here. Telepathy. Any person, of any age, sex, color, at any time --when the desire to see more of the world comes--anybody can set out walking in any direction, secure in the knowing that when night falls, she or he can put their sleeping bag down anywhere in perfect safety, or go to the nearest house and be welcomed with food, conversation, and music, and a breakfast in the morning before starting out. Or maybe stick around and help out a bit before moving on. When I am connected to this world it is more real than anything around me, or kind of like a flowering of all that is good and beautiful and loving around me.

Then there is the other end of the spectrum or swing between dualities or whatever it is. These are the times when it feels as if it is inevitable that the Empire of Darkness is going to turn our Earth into a barren moonscape and we are powerless to stop them. At times of greatest insight I recognize that this war and each battle is being fought within and through each soul--that these are times when the creative power of the human spirit is growing ever stronger, and that the dark side is doing all in its power to tell us this is not so. Here in the US of A, with HAARP up and running, sometimes it is very difficult to even remember that there IS a Spirit--the Everywhere Spirit, the Great Spirit, God, Highest Consciousness--and then of course there is our TV creating a mass consciousness- a collective thought form-- of ugly meanness and valuing being rich before all else.

And I am wondering if others of your readers--all of whom I assume are of high spiritual development or they would not be drawn to your site--struggle between these two poles. It may just be my personal karma or cross.

Thank you, Jean, for all the labor of love you give to your compilations and meditations.



"There is ALWAYS hope."


Live simply - Laugh often - Love deeply.


Dear Kathleen

Thank you very much for sharing this with me/us. I'm quite sure others as well go through similar oscillations. If this may help you keep your inner eyes on the vision of a positive future such as the one you describe, I'd like to point out to your attention the material I've included at the end of this Meditation Focus, namely an article by my friend Palden Jenkins, Seeing into the Future: About progression, prediction and future possible realities, which he wrote in 1997 and in which he describes how he led various groups of people into "a mixture of meditation and interactive remote-viewing of the future", and then how "most of the results seem to hang together with each other to paint a picture of both the dawning of a new world with an utterly renewed and deepened atmosphere and a lot of joy". I recommend you read his 12 point description of what the future looks like. Likewise, as I wrote in October 21, 2004 "It is interesting to mention that 20 years ago as I led groups of people into a guided visualization to "explore" what is to be, after an imaginary journey into a spaceship designed to travel in the near future where a guide was taking each participant through a visit of our future, almost everyone came back with Light and Love-filled visions of this future and description of a regenerated world where every forest is again full of life and pristine, where people are often dressed in white and live a happy peaceful spiritually oriented life in small communities dispersed in the forest and where no crime, no violence exist but only an atmosphere of loving kindness pervading this magnificent eco-spiritual and most possibly space-faring civilization. It's interesting also to know that my good friend Palden Jenkins in the UK has led (at that time) over 300 people in similar visualizations to explore our future and that most of them again came back with similar reports of our near future. So if this any indication, I believe Light and Love's victory over their opposite is not only imminent but already a fact of Life in the realm of potentialities."

This is archived at

So I'd suggest that whenever fears creep into your mind as to whether the "Empire of Darkness" could indeed manage to "turn our Earth into a barren moonscape", you could simply let such thoughts fade away, not paying them any undue attention, and gracefully turn instead your soul's gaze onto the vision that best inspires you to continue forging ahead and trusting that all is going to be OK. Take a few minutes to enter a state of deep meditation and let the marvelous tingling energies well up from deep within to empower this vision and just KNOW it will be so. Such is the co-creative power we can all master when attuned to our innate God Self.

Love and Light will prevail

Subject: They are indeed toast!... Re The Empire of Darkness Series #32: They Are Toast!
Date: 22 May 2006

Dear Jean

As usual and again and again I have to repeat my self that I have no words to convey my gratitude for the magnificent dedication and Love you are manifesting on Earth with the enormous work you’re doing with your compilations. When I think on you, I feel Love and Joy for your vision and humor. And thanks to beings like you we can see very clearly now that your efforts are giving fruits; works like yours and hundreds of others are doing for the Big Awakening are making Them, the ‘bad guys’ in the Cosmic movie, to be really toast! Done!.... Though we have yet some rocky times ahead.

At the same time I want to share with you an intense feeling I have that I’m suffocating, that I don’t know how to bear any longer the present circumstances; as somebody else wrote, the feeling of – can’t wait - for something BIG ( Et’s popping up ) to happen and take us all out of the present tragedy.

Even though I know the Light is prevailing, some anxiety is there for things to start to speed up and left behind the suffering that are going through so many billions of people and all kinds of lifes to allow the Great Cleansing to happen. I can see this anxiety through the net in many others who are participating in it.

Also since long I am trying to figure out how all this 'First Contact' will happen since the most of the people that I know and share my life with in a community like the one I’m, the most, have an strong resistance even to talk seriously about off planet civilizations; the millions who populate the world and still they don’t grasp the conception that we are in a planetary-universal field of experience to accomplish our evolutionary goal; the enormous resistance the people has to accept that we are in the brink of something beyond comprehension, the most deny it, they go about life like they will be forever in the same ‘stage’. How we are going to get into the ‘same soup’ (since the messages say that Mother Earth is waiting as much as she can to take with her as many souls as possible in her ascension), with so much differences that exist today in our world? Could be beautiful if Matthew can elaborate in this. And your view?...

I know you are very busy therefore I cut short, but to tell you the truth I would love to have the opportunity to meet you somewhere in our evolutionary path; I’m sure at some point, in the eternity of time, it will happen.

For the anxiety of our time, maybe these words from Mother, the creator of Auroville, will appease our feelings…

“In the work of transformation, who is slower in doing his work, man or God?
To man, God is too slow in answering his prayer.
To God, man is too slow in opening to his influence.
But to the Truth-Consciousness everything is going as it should.”

With Much Love to you



Thanks Ricardo for your continued appreciation and for sharing with me your concerns about the seemingly slow pace of change.

I'm sure Suzy will see ypour letter in this compilation and, if she so choose, will refer your question to Matthew. All I can say is that from our Earth bound human perspective, it is natural to feel somewhat anxious about the overall situation of so many of our brothers and sisters who are suffering from circumstances which may or may not be of their pre-birth choosing.

What appears to be a hopeless situation, especially with regards to the global environmental status of our world, will eventually turn out OK in the near future, I'm sure of it, because Life is so resilient if given time and proper protection, and also because, as Matthew repeatedly indicated, vastly advanced technical help will be provided to assist the healing of our planetary sphere of life. But above all, it will be our own still dormant collective healing abilities, once we have fully awakened and consciously unified with the Web of Life with which we never were separated, except through our own lack of consciousness, that will make a huge difference. And for that kind of seemingly miraculous planetary healing to occur, the key is to dissolve the overpowering field of illusion, the 'maya' of buddhic lore, that cuts us from our Selves and from the rest of the universal field of Reality.

Granted, it is still not an easy feat to achieve as our modern times provide us—especially if one lives in the wealthy, high tech rich, over-stimulating environment—with endless opportunities for distractions from the essential Truth of Who We Are at the heart of our perceiving awareness. So I'd suggest that instead of allowing anything remotely similar to fear to seep into your consciousness and play on your nerves, learn to relax into whatever your life is throwing at you, even those darn long compilations of heavy-duty stuff from this guy from Quebec here ;-) and just allow yourself to smile at and contemplate the wondrous beauties of Life (from the cornucopia of Life's kingdoms all around us in Nature), knowing/remembering, as Mother so correctly stated, that "everything is going as it should".

That's also part of the current Meditation Focus theme, the "having faith in Life" part of it. This deep inner Knowledge that Everything is OK, no matter how hard the going may get sometimes, is not something that can be given, as it can only be found within One-Self when we allow our consciousness to repeatedly come into contact during our meditations, through the Magickal Mystic Energies of Tingling Resonance, with the deep well of wisdom and clairsentient grounding in the Oneness of All from where all our human concerns and travails take on a definitely less dramatic turn.

With Love and a big smile

Thanks Jean………So much love is going around……..




St. Germain 


We know that you read messages looking for inspiration, and assurance events are proceeding well and that your future is assured. This we are able to confirm, and although by your reckoning time is passing very quickly, we know you find it is not quick enough in manifesting the results you wish to see. We have set the scene, and you quite rightly look beyond the earthly happenings to the time of Ascension.

Meantime the changes that are needed so that we can finally announce ourselves are tantalizing close. We give you an appraisal of where we are, although in reality we have been ready for a number of years. We cannot however give you chapter and verse, and we have to participate in our own covert operations.

It is not in our mutual interests to reveal too much about our plans, although we give you a general idea. There is opposition to the plan of returning your freedom, and the dark prefer to have you under their tight controls. At their soul level their agenda is to stop you from achieving Ascension, and this is why they would not stop at destroying the planet. I tell you this not to engender fear, but that you should know what motivates them.

I can say beyond doubt, that the destruction of Mother Earth will not be allowed and any attempt to do so would be prevented. It would be a violation of the Divine Decree that is in place for both you and the planet. It does not matter what events now transpire, you are certain to walk the path to Ascension. You are equally certain to experience First Contact, and the restoration of Earth to its original pristine condition.

This is the final experience in duality for many of you, and what is happening now is a clearing out of the baggage that you cannot take with you. It is a bit like moving house with all of the trauma and tension that usually occurs, and the decisions you have to make as to what you will take with you or leave behind.

Ascension is of course different, inasmuch that you will have no need to consider your earthly attachments to anything at all. At the time it takes place nothing of a physical nature will remain on Earth, except it has a place in the higher vibrations. Already the new the new Earth has been created in its etheric form. Once it manifests in the higher dimension, with your new found power of creation you will be able to provide for yourself according to your own desires.

It is necessary to restore your Constitution as soon as possible and this will commence the changes to your reality, it will lead you from duality to one purely of Light. This will allow for a smoother transition from your present level, to one that will be a stepping-stone to the path of Ascension. The changes will quickly take place, as will the restoration of Earth. It will be both exciting and rewarding, and you will be very much involved in the activity.

What is happening on Earth at present will not continue much longer. It is however a lesson showing you what can happen when you allow the dark to take control. It is not easy to explain your part in this, but to put it simply you have all over millennia of time contributed to the dark energies. They have become stronger and so powerful that the Earth has been in danger of being engulfed by them.

From the higher realms we have observed the developments for eons of time. We have been allowed to bring the Light back to you, but it has been hard to ground it in such a way that it can transmute the dark and make a real impression. Nevertheless, it has taken hold and we have been able to lead you out of the dark and well onto the path of Light.

You might wonder why we do not lift up those of you who are ready to move totally into the Light. It could be done quite easily, but that would remove your responsibility to make good the planet. You also have to clear the dark energies before the end of the cycle, and your experience would not be complete without going through that period.

Remember that you are already rising up, and nothing can stop that unless you allow it. You have in fact chosen the path you are on, and deep down you know of the responsibility you have in these end times. The task may seem formidable or even impossible, but I would like to assure you that the plan for change is unstoppable and will bring you to the final years in the Light.

Expand your thinking from just an earthly level, and although you may not see the effects of what is happening as the Light increases, feel its presence and accept that it is lifting up your vibrations. Certainly many are aware of the changes occurring within themselves. They find that they are able to separate themselves from the dark energies, and can now deflect them so that they no longer affect them.

You build up your protection around you, and providing you maintain control over your lower emotions there is no way the dark can penetrate your Light. You become a focal point for the Light, and wherever you move you are helping to transmute the lower energies. Multiply this by the millions of souls who are also being drawn into the Light, and you will understand how it is gradually eliminating the dark energies altogether.

You are progressing very well, and do not take any notice of the media who support the dark forces. They will paint a different picture to what exists in reality, and they certainly do not extol the work of those who fight for freedom and truth. Listen as you do to the messages of Light, and you will find the assurances you need that the path to Ascension is unfolding. Some may be tainted, and others even deliberately put out containing false information. You have however become wise to these tactics and they should not distract you from the truth.

I am St. Germain and I come to give you those assurances that progress is satisfactorily being made, but as always we ask your patience. It will not be long now before you will begin to see for yourself the path that is opening up, that will lead to the first major changes.

The Spiritual Hierarchy is working with great love with all of you who aspire to live in the Light. You are also loved and protected by the many dear friends you have who comprise of The Galactic Federation. They are your true family, and come as caring Beings full of admiration for you. With such forces of Light behind you it is impossible to fail, and your victory is totally assured. My blessings go out to you all.

Thank you

St. Germain

Subject: Space ships 

Dear Jean,

Thank you once again for your ongoing and extraordinary efforts to keep us all informed and inspired. To me it seems more and more difficult to keep up with it all, and you always do an amazing job.

Amidst all the negativity, something very encouraging and uplifting happened a few days ago, and I wonder how many of the people who read your newsletter might have experienced it in some way.

A couple of years ago, several of us shared space ship information on your newsletter. I received some interesting personal e-mails as a result of this, by the way. A few days ago, on the morning of May 19, at the end of a dream I heard footsteps, then a beautiful woman's voice saying "Sky? Sky." I woke up and looked out the window and saw only gray fog. I went back to sleep and when I awoke again, I looked out and the sky was blue, and filled with clouds of the type associated with space ships. I felt the same space ship energy, filled with love, that I've experienced several times in the past. My main guide, Yogananda, told me that many ships were nearby. The wonderful light energy stayed with me all day long and moved into my body. I didn't perceive them visually with the inner eye as I have on other occasions, but I could feel their presence and had a sense of communication with them. This is in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I'm wondering if anyone else had any similar experience and would like to share it. My impression was that this occurred over the whole planet, and my feeling is that it's a preparation for First Contact. The energy of it was quite strong. I hope you will post this.
Thank you again for what you are doing,

Secret FEMA Plan To Use Pastors as Pacifiers in Preparation For Martial Law

Nationwide initiative trains volunteers to teach congregations to "obey the government" during seizure of guns, property, forced inoculations and forced relocation

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | May 24 2006

A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

In March of this year the Pastor, who we shall refer to as Pastor Revere, was invited to attend a meeting of his local FEMA chapter which circulated around preparedness for a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a nationally declared emergency.

The FEMA directors told the Pastors that attended that it was their job to help implement FEMA and Homeland Security directives in anticipation of any of these eventualities. The first directive was for Pastors to preach to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians into supporting him, in order to teach them to "obey the government" when martial law is declared.

FEMA Training Documents for Pastors

It was related to the Pastors that quarantines, martial law and forced relocation were a problem for state authorities when enforcing federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality" of citizens standing up for their property and second amendment rights as well as farmers defending their crops and livestock from seizure. It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that "this is for their own good."

We have received confirmation from other preachers and Pastors that this program is a nationwide initiative and a literal Soviet model whereby the churches are being systematically infiltrated by government volunteers and used as conduits for martial law training and conditioning. The Pastor was told that over 13,000 counties were already on board.

It falls under the umbrella of the NVOAD program ( which is training volunteers in a "Peer to Peer" program in a neighborhood setting.

Pastors were told that the would be backed up by law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals and that they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell resistance.

Police provide cover for a FEMA house-by-house search in New Orleans.

"We get the the picture that we're going to be standing at the end of some farmer's lane while he's standing there with his double barrel, saying we have to confiscate your cows, your chickens, your firearms," said Pastor Revere.

The Pastor elaborated on how the directives were being smoke screened by an Orwellian alteration of their names.

"They're not using the term 'quarantine' - this is the term they're going to be using - it's called 'social distancing' don't you like that one," said the Pastor.

He also highlighted how detention camps had been renamed to give them a friendly warm veneer.

"Three months ago it was quarantine and relocation centers and now it's 'community centers' and these are going to be activated at the local schools," he said.

Pastor Revere outlined the plan to carry out mass vaccination and enforced drugging programs in times of crisis such as a bird flu outbreak.

"In the event of an outbreak or a bio-terrorist attack, there'd be a mass vaccination....they have a program nationwide 'Pills in People's Palm In 48 Hours'," said the Pastor who was told that Walmart had been designated as the central outlet of this procedure.

Pastor Revere said that many attendees believed in the necessity of the program and were completely unaware to the motivations behind its true purpose and were offered incentives to become volunteers such as preferential treatment and first access for themselves and their families to vaccines and food shipments in times of emergency.

Which roads to close off after martial law was declared had also already been mapped out.

The precedent for mass gun confiscation in times of real or manufactured emergency was set during Hurricane Katrina when police and national guard patrols forced homeowners even in areas unaffected by the hurricane to hand over their legally owned firearms at gunpoint as is detailed in the video below.

In the following video Alex Jones exposes FEMA's deliberate sabotage of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts which were used as a platform for a beat test of forced relocation and gun confiscation.

Alex Jones' 2001 documentary film 9/11: The Road to Tyranny (a must see at featured footage from a FEMA symposium given to firefighters and other emergency personnel in Kansas City in which it was stated that the founding fathers, Christians and homeschoolers were terrorists and should be treated with the utmost suspicion and brutality in times of national emergency.

We have highlighted previous training manuals issues by state and federal government bodies which identify whole swathes of the population as potential terrorists. A Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Law Enforcement pamphlet gives the public characteristics to identify terrorists that include buying baby formula, beer, wearing Levi jeans, carrying identifying documents like a drivers license and traveling with women or children.

A Virginia training manual used to help state employees recognize terrorists lists anti-government and property rights activists as terrorists and includes binoculars, video cameras, pads and notebooks in a compendium of terrorist tools.

Shortly after 9/11 a Phoenix FBI manual that was disseminated amongst federal employees at the end of the Clinton term caused waves on the Internet after it was revealed that potential terrorists included, "defenders of the US Constitution against federal government and the UN, " and individuals who "make numerous references to the US Constitution." Lawyers everywhere cowered in fear at being shipped off to Gitmo.

In December 2003 the FBI warned Americans nationwide to be on the lookout for people reading Almanacs as this could indicate an act of terrorism in planning. Almanacs are popular glove box inventory of any vehicle and this ludicrous fearmongering was met with a raucous response from satirists and news commentators.

In another twilight zone Nazi-like spectacle, Pastors were asked to make a pledge or an affirmation during the meeting to fulfil the roles ascribed to them by FEMA. They were given assurances that they would be covered by full compensation in the event of resisters injuring them during property seizures and round-ups.

The Pastor said that his county had already succumbed to a tattle-tale like mentality where neighbors were reporting neighbors to the authorities for things like having chickens in their back yard. The brown shirt precedent has been set whereby people immediately turn to the authorities in fealty whenever their paranoid suspicions, fueled by zealous government and media fearmongering, are heightened.

Pastor Revere said the completion of the first stage of the program was slated for August 31st. At this point all the counties within the United States would be networked as part of the so-called disaster relief program.

We issue a challenge to all of our readers to print off this article and the supporting documents we will subsequently provide and confront their local preacher with it. If they don't receive a response within a week they should investigate further into whether their preacher is involved and hand out information to other members of the congregation.

Analysis: US Braces for Marine Scandal

The Associated Press

28 May 2006

Baghdad, Iraq -- The U.S. military is bracing for a major scandal over the alleged slaying of Iraqi civilians by Marines in Haditha -- charges so serious they could threaten President Bush's effort to rally support at home for an increasingly unpopular war.

And while the case has attracted little attention so far in Iraq, it still could enflame hostility to the U.S. presence just as Iraq's new government is getting established, and complicate efforts by moderate Sunni Arab leaders to reach out to their community -- the bedrock of the insurgency.

U.S. lawmakers have been told the criminal investigation will be finished in about 30 days. But a Pentagon official said investigators believe Marines committed unprovoked murder in the deaths of about two dozen people at Haditha in November.

With a political storm brewing, the top U.S. Marine, Gen. Michael W. Hagee, is headed to Iraq to personally deliver the message that troops should use deadly force "only when justified, proportional and, most importantly, lawful."

Haditha is not the only case pending: On Wednesday, the military announced an investigation into allegations that Marines killed a civilian April 26 near Fallujah. The statement gave no further details except that "several service members" had been sent back to the United States "pending the results of the criminal investigation."

Last July, Iraq's ambassador to the United Nations, Samir al-Sumaidaie, accused the Marines of killing his 21-year-old cousin in cold blood during a search of his family's home in Haditha, a city of about 90,000 people along the Euphrates River 140 miles northwest of Baghdad.

The military ordered a criminal investigation but the results have not been announced.

Together, the cases present the most serious challenge to U.S. handling of the Iraq war since the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, which Bush cited Thursday as "the biggest mistake that's happened so far, at least from our country's involvement in Iraq."

"What happened at Haditha appears to be outright murder," said Marc Garlasco of Human Rights Watch. "It has the potential to blow up in the U.S. military's face."

He said that "the Haditha massacre will go down as Iraq's My Lai," a reference to the Vietnam War incident in which American soldiers slaughtered up to 500 civilians in 1968.

The Haditha case involves both the alleged killing of civilians and a purported cover-up of the events that unfolded Nov. 19.

That day, Lance Cpl. Miguel Terrazas, 20, of El Paso, Texas, was killed by a roadside bomb in Haditha, a Sunni Arab city considered among the most hostile areas of Iraq.

After the blast, insurgents attacked a joint U.S.-Iraqi patrol with small-arms fire, triggering a gunbattle that left eight insurgents and 15 Iraqi civilians dead, the Marines said in a statement issued the following day.

That version stood for four months until a videotape shot by an Iraqi journalism student surfaced, obtained by Time magazine and then by Arab television stations. The tape showed the bodies of women and children, some in their nightclothes.

Although the tape did not prove Marines were responsible, the military began an investigation. Residents came forward with claims that Marines entered two homes and killed 15 people, including a 3-year-old girl and a 76-year-old man -- more than four hours after the roadside bombing.

It isn't clear if questions have been raised about the eight slain people that the Marines described as insurgents.

In March, Lt. Gen. Peter Chiarelli, the No. 2 U.S. commander in Iraq, said about a dozen Marines were under investigation for possible war crimes in the incident. Three officers from the unit involved have been relieved of their posts.

Such incidents have reinforced the perception among many Iraqis who believe American troops are trigger-happy -- a characterization U.S. officers strongly dispute.

"America in the view of many Iraqis has no credibility. We do not believe what they say is correct," said Sheik Sattar al-Aasaf, a tribal leader in Anbar province, which includes Haditha. "U.S. troops are a very well-trained and when they shoot, it isn't random but due to an order to kill Iraqis. People say they are the killers."

Ayda Aasran, a deputy human rights minister, said Iraqis should be allowed to investigate such cases -- something the U.S. command has refused to permit.

Sunni political leaders will find it difficult to defend U.S. actions, even those aimed at establishing the truth, if they want to maintain their position as leaders of the Iraqi minority that provides most of the insurgents.

Even if criminal charges are brought in the Haditha incident, Sunni insurgents are likely to claim the case is simply a charade and argue that the Marines will escape serious punishment.

Countless My Lai Massacres in Iraq
Dahr Jamail argues that "just like Abu Ghraib, while the media spotlight shines squarely on the Haditha massacre, countless atrocities continue daily, conveniently out of the awareness of the general public. Torture did not stop simply because the media finally decided, albeit in horribly belated fashion, to cover the story, and the daily slaughter of Iraqi civilians by US forces and US-backed Iraqi "security" forces had not stopped either.

Marines in Iraq 'massacre' may face the death penalty (May 29, 2006)
WASHINGTON - US Marines could face the death penalty after one of their number took horrific photos of a massacre in Iraq on his mobile phone, Britain's Independent has learned. The photographs, seized by the US Naval Criminal Investigative Service, show many victims shot at close range in the head and chest. One shows a mother and child bent over as if in prayer. Both have been shot dead. The pictures were taken in Haditha last November after an incident that US Marines had described as an ambush and a firefight with insurgents. Witness accounts say the Marines entered homes and shot occupants dead. Images taken by US intelligence after the shooting stopped show that soldiers "suffered a total breakdown in morality and leadership", the LA Times quoted an official yesterday. Two inquiries have been presented to Congress in the past 10 days, provoking the international scandal. Democrat John Murtha, a former Marine who has retained close links to the military despite his denunciation of the Iraq occupation, said Marines "killed innocent civilians in cold blood". Another probe is now expected to result in charges of murder, dereliction of duty and making false statements against up to a dozen Marines. Military prosecutors may seek the death penalty for those found guilty of murder. The official account has gradually unravelled since initial claims that one Marine and 15 Iraqi civilians were killed in the bombing of a US convoy. Gunmen then "attacked the convoy" a statement added, and the Marines returned fire, killing eight insurgents and wounding one. However, a journalism student's video, obtained by a human rights group, showed that no Iraqis were killed in the bomb explosion. The houses where people died were bullet-riddled inside, but not on the outside. An official inquiry confirmed all those killed were civilians, and that all the shooting that day was by the Marines. The LA Times said that most of the fatal shots appeared to have been fired by a small group, possibly a four-man "fire team" led by a sergeant. The incident is being described as potentially the worst war crime since the invasion of Iraq.

The Haditha Massacre
"Regardless of how those who may ultimately be charged with murder fare in court, a more significant question is whether George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld will be charged with war crimes on a theory of command responsibility," writes Marjorie Cohn.

Marines Were Traumatized After Haditha Incident: Families
According to their families, two US Marines were severely traumatized after following orders to photograph corpses of unarmed Iraqi civilians allegedly killed by members of their unit.

Bloody Scenes Haunt a Marine
Lance Cpl. Roel Ryan Briones says he is tormented by two memories of November 19, 2005, in Haditha, Iraq. The first is of the body of his best friend and fellow Marine blown apart just after dawn by a roadside bomb. The second is of the lifeless form of a small Iraqi girl, one of two dozen unarmed civilians allegedly killed by members of his Camp Pendleton unit - Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division.

Murtha Alleges Marine Coverup
Congressman John P. Murtha said yesterday that there has been a conscious effort by Marine commanders to cover up the facts of a November incident in which rampaging Marines allegedly killed 24 Iraqi civilians. "We don't know how far it goes," Murtha said of the alleged coverup. "The Marines knew about it all this time. Somebody in the chain of command decided not to allow this to happen. How far up it went, I don't know."

Don't Become Them
Maureen Dowd refers to the massacre at Haditha as "A My Lai acid flashback." She finds irony in "The force that sacked Saddam to stop him from killing innocents is now accused of killing innocents."

Photos Indicate Civilians Slain Execution-Style
Photographs taken by a Marine intelligence team have convinced investigators that a Marine unit killed as many as 24 unarmed Iraqis, some of them "execution-style," in the insurgent stronghold of Haditha after a roadside bomb killed an American in November, officials close to the investigation said Friday.

Easily Dispensable: Iraq's Children

By Dahr Jamail

t r u t h o u t | Perspective

22 May 2006

Cherishing children is the mark of a civilized society.

- Joan Ganz Cooney

If, as I would like to believe, the above quote suggests all children and not merely those born in Western democracies, I am no longer certain that we live in a civilized society.

That women and children suffer the most during times of war is not a new phenomenon. It is a reality as old as war itself. What Rumsfeld, Rice and other war criminals of the Cheney administration prefer to call "collateral damage" translates in English as the inexcusable murder of and other irreparable harm done to women, children and the elderly during any military offensive.

US foreign policy in the Middle East manifests itself most starkly in its impact on the children of Iraq. It is they who continue to pay with their lives and futures for the brutal follies of our administration. Starvation under sanctions, and death and suffering during war and occupation are their lot. Since the beginning of the occupation, Iraqi children have been affected worst by the violence generated by the occupying forces and the freedom fighters.

While I had witnessed several instances of this from the time of my first trip to Iraq in November 2003, I was shaken by a close encounter with it, a year later, in November 2004.

In a major Baghdad hospital, 12-year-old Fatima Harouz lay in her bed, dazed, amidst a crowded hospital room. She limply waved her bruised arm at the flies that buzzed over the bed. Her shins, shattered by bullets when American soldiers fired through the front door of her house, were both covered in casts. Small plastic drainage bags filled with red fluid sat upon her abdomen, where she had taken shrapnel from another bullet.

She was from Latifiya, a city just south of Baghdad. Three days before I saw her, soldiers had attacked her home. Her mother, standing with us in the hospital, said, "They attacked our home and there weren't even any resistance fighters in our area." Her brother had been shot and killed, his wife wounded, and their home ransacked by soldiers. "Before they left, they killed all of our chickens," added Fatima's mother, her eyes a mixture of fear, shock and rage. A doctor who was with us as Fatima's mother narrated the story looked at me and sternly asked, "This is the freedom … in their Disney Land are there kids just like this?"

The doctors' anger was mild if we consider the magnitude of suffering that has been inflicted upon the children of Iraq as a direct result of first the US-backed sanctions and then the failed US occupation.

In a report released by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on May 2nd of this year, one out of three Iraqi children is malnourished and underweight.

The report states that 25% of Iraqi children between the ages of six months and five years old suffer from either acute or chronic malnutrition. In addition, the Integrated Regional Information Network (IRIN) press release on the matter added, "A 2004 Living Conditions Survey indicated a decrease in mortality rates among children under five years old since 1999. However, the results of a September 2005 Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis - commissioned by Iraq's Central Organization for Statistics and Information Technology, the World Food Program and UNICEF - showed worsening conditions since the April 2003 US-led invasion of the country."

Also this month, on May 15th , a news story about the same UN-backed government survey highlighted that "people are struggling to cope three years after US-forces overthrew Saddam Hussein." The report added that "Children are ... major victims of food insecurity," and described the situation as "alarming." The story continued, "A total of four million Iraqis, roughly 15 percent of the population, were in dire need of humanitarian aid including food, up from 11 percent in a 2003 report, the survey of more than 20,000 Iraqi households found.… Decades of conflict and economic sanctions have had serious effects on Iraqis. Their consequences have been rising unemployment, illiteracy and, for some families, the loss of wage earners."

But the hearts of small children are delicate organs. A cruel beginning in this world can twist them into curious shapes.

- Carson McCullers

Iraq's ministries of Health and Planning carried out the survey with support from the UN World Food Program and UNICEF. A spokesman for UNICEF's Iraq Support Center in Amman, Jordan, David Singh, told Reuters that the number of acutely malnourished children in Iraq had more than doubled, from 4% during the last year of Saddam's rule to at least 9% in 2005. He also said, "Until there is a period of relative stability in Iraq we are going to continue to face these kinds of problems." UNICEF's special representative for Iraq, Roger Wright, commenting on the dire effects of the situation, said, "This can irreversibly hamper the young child's optimal mental/cognitive development, not just their physical development."

This past March, an article titled "Garbage Dump Second Home for Iraqi Children" addressed the appalling situation in the northern, Kurdish-controlled Iraqi city of Sulaimaniyah where young children assist their families in searching the city garbage dumps. It said that children as young as seven often accompany their parents to the dumps before school, in order to look for reusable items such as shoes, clothing and electrical equipment which is then resold in order to augment the family income.

This disturbing news is not really news in Baghdad. Back in December 2004 I saw children living with their families in the main dump of the capital city.

Poverty in Iraq has plummeted acutely during the invasion and occupation. Those who were already surviving on the margins due to years of deprivation have sunk further, and the children of such families have recourse to no nutrition, no health care, no education, no present and no future. Those from less unfortunate backgrounds are now suffering because the family wage earner has been killed, detained, or lost employment. Or the source of the family's income, a shop, factory or farm have been destroyed, or simply because it is impossible to feed a family under the existing economic conditions of high costs and low to nil income in Iraq.

As execrable as the current situation is for Iraqi children, most of the world media, appallingly, does not see it as a story to be covered. Even back in November 2004, surveys conducted by the UN, aid agencies and the interim Iraqi government showed that acute malnutrition among young children had nearly doubled since the US-led invasion took place in the spring of 2004.

A Washington Post story, "Children Pay Cost of Iraq's Chaos," read, "After the rate of acute malnutrition among children younger than 5 steadily declined to 4 percent two years ago, it shot up to 7.7 percent this year, according to a study conducted by Iraq's Health Ministry in cooperation with Norway's Institute for Applied International Studies and the U.N. Development Program. The new figure translates to roughly 400,000 Iraqi children suffering from "wasting," a condition characterized by chronic diarrhea and dangerous deficiencies of protein."

Not only is the US occupation starving Iraq's children, but occupation forces regularly detain them as well. It is common knowledge in Iraq that there have been child prisoners in the most odious prisons, such as Abu Ghraib, since early on in the occupation. While most, if not all, corporate media outlets in the US have been loath to visit the subject, the Sunday Herald in Scotland reported back in August 2004 that "coalition forces are holding more than 100 children in jails such as Abu Ghraib. Witnesses claim that the detainees - some as young as 10 - are also being subjected to rape and torture."

The story read, "It was early last October that Kasim Mehaddi Hilas says he witnessed the rape of a boy prisoner aged about 15 in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. 'The kid was hurting very bad and they covered all the doors with sheets,' he said in a statement given to investigators probing prisoner abuse in Abu Ghraib. 'Then, when I heard the screaming I climbed the door … and I saw [the soldier's name is deleted] who was wearing a military uniform." Hilas, who was himself threatened with being sexually assaulted in Abu Ghraib, then described in horrific detail how the soldier raped 'the little kid.'"

The newspaper's investigation at that time concluded that there were as many as 107 children being held by occupation forces, although their names were not known, nor their location or the length of their detention.

In June 2004 an internal UNICEF report, which was not made public, noted widespread arrest and detention of Iraqi children by US and UK forces. A section of the report titled "Children in Conflict with the Law or with Coalition Forces," stated, "In July and August 2003, several meetings were conducted with CPA (Coalition Provisional Authority) … and Ministry of Justice to address issues related to juvenile justice and the situation of children detained by the coalition forces … UNICEF is working through a variety of channels to try and learn more about conditions for children who are imprisoned or detained, and to ensure that their rights are respected."

Another section of the report added, "Information on the number, age, gender and conditions of incarceration is limited. In Basra and Karbala children arrested for alleged activities targeting the occupying forces are reported to be routinely transferred to an internee facility in Um Qasr. The categorization of these children as 'internees' is worrying since it implies indefinite holding without contact with family, expectation of trial or due process." The report went on to add, "A detention centre for children was established in Baghdad, where according to ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) a significant number of children were detained. UNICEF was informed that the coalition forces were planning to transfer all children in adult facilities to this 'specialized' child detention centre. In July 2003, UNICEF requested a visit to the centre but access was denied. Poor security in the area of the detention centre has prevented visits by independent observers like the ICRC since last December [2003]."

A section of the report which I found very pertinent, as I'd already witnessed this occurring in Iraq, stated, "The perceived unjust detention of Iraqi males, including youths, for suspected activities against the occupying forces has become one of the leading causes for the mounting frustration among Iraqi youth and the potential for radicalization of this population group."

On December 17, 2003, at the al-Shahid Adnan Kherala secondary school in Baghdad, I witnessed US forces detain 16 children who had held a mock, non-violent, pro-Saddam Hussein the previous day. While forces from the First Armored Division sealed the school with two large tanks, helicopters, several Bradley fighting vehicles and at least 10 Humvees, soldiers loaded the children into a covered truck and drove them to their base. Meanwhile, the rest of the students remained locked inside the school until the US military began to exit the area.

Shortly thereafter the doors were unlocked, releasing the frightened students who flocked out the doors. The youngest were 12 years old, and none of the students were older than 18. They ran out, many in tears, while others were enraged as they kicked and shook the front gate. My interpreter and I were surrounded by frenzied students who yelled, "This is the democracy? This is the freedom? You see what the Americans are doing to us here?"

Another student cried out to us, "They took several of my friends! Why are they taking them to prison? For throwing rocks?" A few blocks away we spoke with a smaller group of students who had run from the school (in panic). One student who was crying yelled to me, "Why are they doing this to us? We are only kids!"

The tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles that were guarding the perimeter of the school began to rumble down the street beside us, on their passage out. Several young boys with tears streaming down their faces picked up stones and hurled them at the tanks as they drove by. Imagine my horror when I saw the US soldiers on top of the Bradleys begin firing their M-16's above our heads as we ducked inside a taxi. A soldier on another Bradley, behind the first, passed and fired randomly above our heads as well. Kids and pedestrians ran for cover into the shops and wherever possible.

I remember a little boy, not more than 13 years old, holding a stone and standing at the edge of the street glaring at the Bradleys as they rumbled past. Another soldier riding atop another passing Bradley pulled out his pistol and aimed it at the boy's head and kept him in his sights until the vehicle rolled out of sight.

One of the students hiding behind our taxi screamed to me, "Who are the terrorists here now? You have seen this yourself! We are school kids!"

The very next month, in January 2004, I was in an area on the outskirts of Baghdad that had been pulverized by "Operation Iron Grip." I spoke with a man at his small farm house. His three year old boy, Halaf Ziad Halaf, walked up to me and with a worried look on his face said, "I have seen the Americans here with their tanks. They want to attack us."

His uncle, who had joined us for tea, leaned over to me and said, "The Americans are creating the terrorists here by hurting people and causing their relatives to fight against them. Even this little boy will grow up hating the Americans because of their policy here."

The slaughter, starvation, detention, torture and sexual assault of Iraq's children at the hands of US soldiers or by proxy via US foreign policy, is not a recent phenomenon. It is true that the present US administration has been brazen and blatant in its crimes in Iraq, but those willing to bear witness must not forget that Bill Clinton and his minions played an equally, if not even more devastating role in the assault on the children of Iraq.

On May 12, 1996, Clinton's Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was asked by Lesley Stahl on "60 Minutes" about the effects of US sanctions against Iraq, "We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"

In a response which has now become notorious, Albright replied, "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price - we think the price is worth it."

We are guilty of many errors and many faults but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer "Tomorrow." His name is "Today."

- Gabriela Mistral

To all Americans who, despite voluminous evidence to the contrary, continue to believe that they are supporting a war for democracy in Iraq, I would like to say, the way Iraq is headed it will have little use for democracy and freedom. We must find ways to stop the immoral, soulless, repugnant occupation if we want the children of Iraq to see any future at all.

World is blind to real situation in Iraq: activists

May 27, 2006 

OSAKA -- An Iraqi journalist and a Japanese human rights activist said the public has a poor idea of the situation in Iraq and warned of an impending health catastrophe as more Iraqis contract cancer from exposure to depleted uranium shells used by the U.S. and Britain.

Speaking at a public gathering Thursday evening in Osaka, Isam Rasheed, a freelance journalist, and Fumikazu Nishitani, head of Osaka-based NGO Rescue the Iraqi Children, gave an update of what was going on in the Middle Eastern country.

"It is now virtually impossible for foreign journalists to move around independently in Iraq," Nishitani said.

"Most (journalists) are embedded with U.S. forces or operate from the Green Zone, a walled fortress in central Baghdad. As a result, few people in the West, or in Japan, have seen the true extent of the damage and suffering in Fallujah, while the U.S. government continues to deny responsibility for the cancer and leukemia outbreaks."

"The world has seen little of the devastation wrought by U.S. troops on the city of Fallujah," Rasheed said. "Entire neighborhoods were destroyed and the number of innocent civilians killed and maimed the bombing was quite high."


Nishitani slipped into Iraq three times, most recently earlier this month, and filed reports for the Mainichi Shimbun and other news outlets.

Rasheed, who is also a photographer, is based in Baghdad and writes for a Scottish newspaper.

The men showed two of Rasheed’s films as well as photos of the November 2004 siege of Fallujah by U.S. troops.

They also showed photos of Iraqis with cancer they had interviewed. Iraqi doctors and many international experts claim much of the cancer, particularly leukemia, was caused by exposure to depleted uranium shells from U.S. and British forces that have contaminated the ground.

Rasheed told the story of one 12-year-old boy he interviewed who began playing in a field contaminated with depleted uranium at the age of 10. Shortly after he began showing signs of illness and was eventually diagnosed with leukemia.

Despite extensive evidence and a growing international consensus that the depleted uranium shells are responsible for the rise of cancer in Iraq, the United States continues to deny any connection.

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment ordering a comprehensive study on the effects of exposure to depleted uranium. The study, however, will only be conducted on U.S. soldiers.

Journalists have discovered that since 2003, parts of Baghdad have radiation levels 1,900 times higher than normal.

During the first year of the war, starting in March 2003, the U.S. Army and Air Force used ammunition containing about 115 metric tons of depleted uranium.

"Nobody has any idea how many Iraqis may have developed leukemia or fallen ill (with other diseases), because of the depleted uranium shells," Nishitani said.

"It’s a major health catastrophe in the making." Rasheed said.

The dollar's evil twin: Exploring the Bush bureaucracy's private monetary system

By Jane Stillwater - Online Journal Guest Writer


May 23, 2006

I was happily hiking through Tilden Park on Mothers' Day when all the stuff I have been reading on the Internet regarding the sorry state of the American economy suddenly coalesced inside of my head. "Aha!" I said to the tree next to me as suddenly everything started to make sense.

Here's what I had learned from the Internet:

From Mike Whitney I learned that "Currently, the world is drowning in dollars, even a small movement could trigger a massive recession in the United States." I also learned that "There's no prospect of the US running a trade surplus anytime soon. Bush has savaged the manufacturing sector, outsourcing over 3 million jobs and shutting down plants across the country. . . . Currently, the national debt is a whopping $8.4 trillion with an equally harrowing $800 billion trade deficit."

Whitney also taught me that "the profligate spending, budget-busting tax cuts, and the shocking increase in the money supply (the Fed has doubled the money supply in one decade) has the greenback headed for the dumpster. Already, China and Japan (who hold an accumulated $1.7 trillion in US securities and currency) are gradually moving away from the dollar towards the euro."

From my friend Joe Thompson, I learned that "3.9 trillion dollars a day in wire transfers are going through the Federal Reserve of New York. No greenbacks, just digits." The Federal Reserve is apparently printing greenbacks like alchemists who have finally learned how to make gold out of air.

Joe also said that, "There's no way the stock market could continue to advance while buying inflated oil futures at the same time. Even with margin trading there is just so much money to go around. So the money had to come from really deep pockets -- which the oil companies have. They couldn't lose because they were feeding themselves with their own money."

Then of course Michael Rupert has taught us the critical lesson that drug money pouring in from Afghanistan and Colombia is what really keeps our economy afloat.

And I also got an interesting lesson from the Washington Post. "A $2.7 trillion budget plan pending before the House would raise the federal debt ceiling to nearly $10 trillion, less than two months after Congress last raised the federal government's borrowing limit." What lesson is this? That America's federal credit cards appear to be totally maxed out?

And economists are predicting another economic crash like the one in
1929. "The crisis won't come immediately," stated Paul Krugman back in 2003. "For a few years, America will still be able to borrow freely, simply because lenders assume that things will somehow work out. But at a certain point we'll have a Wile E. Coyote moment. . . . Mr. Coyote had a habit of running off cliffs and taking several steps on thin air before noticing that there was nothing underneath his feet. Only then would he plunge."

I put all these facts into my brain, stirred them up and added a few more facts that I stole off of Google. "America's total national income is approximately $2,100 billion a year but our debt is approximately $8 TRILLION." That means that we taxpayers are only making enough salary to pay off less than one percent of our debt. And yet our economy hasn't crashed?

What does THAT mean?

What IS keeping our economy together?

Is there some secret underground world of money that we average Americans know nothing about? Is there some private monetary system that really runs the economy -- and has nothing to do with the "dollar?"

Or does the U.S. dollar have an evil twin?

Still deep in thought, I walked over to the park's Little Farm and looked at the chickens, pigs, rabbits and cows. "No one is gonna believe this," I told a chicken that had just pecked at my shoe. "They are all gonna just think that I'm paranoid. But seriously, look at the evidence. . . ." The chicken looked.

"The American economy is in deep trouble but it hasn't crashed. That's against every law of economics since Adam Smith! The feds SHOULD be bankrupt. Yet they are not." The chicken nodded its head.

"There must be money pouring into the system from somewhere." The chicken agreed.

"But where?" No-bid contract money-pits, drug money, petro-dollars, money-laundering schemes, off-shore hidey-holes, safety-deposit boxes full of gold, numbered Swiss bank accounts, artificial money creation, the outrageous use of credit, Enron-style boondoggles. . . . If you add in all these shadow sources of revenue, NOW the booming U.S. economy makes sense." Holy sheep dookie. "That means that corruption and nepotism and cronyism and bribes and embezzlement and money-laundering and drugs are holding our economy together!" The chicken nodded again.

"Since we stopped taxing the rich and 'offshore' corporations, the money hemorrhaging out of OUR wallets is only a drop in the bucket in staunching the flood of national debt. If the national economy was only financed by us measly taxpayers, this above-ground economy would be a train wreck waiting to happen. Yet the underground economy of billionaires just keeps chugging happily along." The chicken agreed.

But wait. It gets worse. "If the dollar crashes tomorrow, none of the Bush bureaucrats will be affected. WE depend on the dollar. We would go belly-up. THEY depend on a shadow economy and the dollar's evil twin who they keep locked up somewhere in the Cayman Islands -- or in the new mega-embassy in Baghdad. They will be fine." The chicken squawked.

"But how did we Americans allow this to happen? How did we degenerate into a bunch of poor little match girls, standing in the snow and staring longingly through the window as the dollar's evil clones live high on the hog?" The chicken had no idea.

Then I thought of one of Whitney's other comments. "By collapsing the dollar, Bush can shift the wealth of the American middle class to corporate mandarins in the blink of an eye. Industry profits will soar while working class people drown in an ocean of red ink."

Then the chicken pooped on my foot.

GOP: Mowed Down By The Bushwacker

What we've all been praying for is going to happen: George bush and the Crony Crew are going to expose every Republican lie and dirty secret ever cooked up in any copy of their books. Indeed, it's already BEEN happening.

- Their rationale for the Iraq war has been shattered numerous times, every time they try to flip it to something else it gets blown out, and nobody but the densest believe any of it now. It's become painfully obvious they did it so they could siphon off defense contracting money by the tens of billions. Hell, we haven't even got any oil to speak of out of the deal. The oils companies they are all in bed with are making a killing BECAUSE Iraq is off the oil production chart.

- Their betrayal of the entire Gulf Coast population of the United States is cemented in the minds of the vast majority of Americans.

- Their willingness to blow the cover of any secret operatives that might get in the way of the next war, from Slick Dick Cheney on down, has been clearly shown and is starting to result in indictments at the highest levels of the current squatters in the White House. Think any of the spooks we have left trust these clowns? Not when they could get their cover blown off by a political breeze. Even if they're ordered to do something by these clowns, if the result is inconvenient to their plans, they just yell "Here's the spy!" Breeds great loyalty, hmmm?

- Their un- willingness to enter true diplomatic relations with Iran is an obvious ploy to shake up the oil markets even further, which could make the defense contracting straw into a full- blown town water system main feed line, AND push oil company profits out of the known galaxy. Not to mention, anyone with the brains of a scarecrow knows that they could P.O. China and Russia by moving on Iran and either start WW- III or collapse the U.S. economy by messing up the status quo with the Chinese.

- They have utterly blown any rank- n- file Republicans' delusions of fiscal conservatism in the federal budget into an Armageddon- sized nuclear crater of national debt that will take generations to pay off.

- It's become clear that they are rigging elections by any combination of dirty tricks, insider election officials, and computer modems they can muster. I don't know anyone who trusts voting machines.

- They've resorted to threatening the media that is finally getting tired of covering for them to the point that no one believes the newspapers or nightly news any more. The only thing keeping the press from busting them is the fear of being persecuted by Gonzo Gonzales, the fastest little legal hack in Washington. Once the threats fall flat, they'll lose control of that, too - mark my words. The media can only stand to lose so many viewers and subscribers.

- They've failed to cover up all the bribery and campaign fund raising scandals by Republican Congresspersons to the point where all the slime balls are drying up and blowing away in courts nearly daily.

- They've so badly screwed the middle class in their non- fiscally- conservative wealthy welfare tax structure that even the hummer drivers get that they can't afford gas much longer, and know they can't go bankrupt to afford to keep driving the Suburban Alps to work. Every gas station is flying the best advertisement against Republicans ever invented - price signs!

- They have P.O.'d the entire rest of the world at the U.S. and everyone who travels outside the us. comes back telling of being nearly spit on every where they go. Now we are all hearing sad but true stories of Americans being exposed for trying to pass as Canadians when traveling so they won't be despised everywhere they go.

- They've exhausted the military so badly that we can't fight any more wars and have only our nuclear deterrent to rely on for national security. We can't even fight a half acre forest fire any more, let alone Iran, unless we nuke it.

- They've got the whole world thinking George is dumb and crazy enough to USE nukes. People are almost expecting it against Iran and everyone else is wondering if they're next on Dubya's hit list.

- They've given nothing but shoddy lip service to any agenda item they promised with the exception of creating perpetual war and taking away the most cherished freedoms in America by trick, hook, crook, or bullying.

- They've had the lid blown off the fact that they are spying on EVERYONE EVERYWHERE illegally without warrants or probable cause.

- They've had the lid blown off that they are torturing people every chance they get in the kinkiest ways they can think of.

- They've had the lid blown off that they will hold people in secret jails out of the country and never charge them with a crime, allow them to see a lawyer, or tell their families where they disappeared to. Even US citizens, and even BY ACCIDENT.

- They've had the lid blown off that their adored Chicken George ducked 'Nam, and is a possible ex-coke fiend and definite ex- lush. At least they hope it's "ex".

- They've had the lid blown off the Chicken George wrote in that he doesn't have to follow any laws he signs over 750 times.

- Chicken George tried to nominated the Doting Doltess, Dear Harriet to the Supreme Court - and then stuck in two someones that are going to try to take away every civil right they can get their mitts on.

- Chicken George signed off on CAFTA and has tried to bust every union in the chops by stealth.

- They tried selling off port operations in the U.S. to a company with ties to 9/11 and are trying to sell military parts manufacturing to the same.

- They've failed to secure our ports or borders against the WMD they failed to find anywhere in the country they invaded based on lies.

- They've been caught trying to stealth - classify every government document in existence.

- Their close ties to the corporate thieves of Enron and their cover for the same are currently being exposed.

- They've proven that whenever there's any kind of problem, the only course of action they can come up with is "Throw soldiers, lies, insults, and defense contracting scams at it" is the only policy they can come up with.

- I'm too tired of typing to continue the list, but it's growing several times a day.

What can they POSSIBLY run on in the Fall?

Mark my words, EVERY mis- deed they have done or will try to do has been or will be exposed.

8-11th June Ottawa 2006: Bilderberg 2006 and the Killers of Freedom

Venezuela and Iran, two great global 'problems' which, backed by most of the private money in the world, Bilderbergers will attempt to 'solve' in Ottawa next month. The public's majority view however, which they will scrupulously ignore, is that Venezuela and Iran represent two great bastions of freedom which have defended the views of their respective populations and refused to bow to the totalitarian dominance of the biggest war machine the world has ever seen and the fascist Project for a New American Century.

This year, the tenth I have covered Bilderberg, credit for pinpointing the venue is shared between Jim Tucker in Washington and Brussels activist Marek Tysis' scrutiny of Turkish language website, Hearty thanks to everyone. Henry Kissinger and his co-conspirators edge closer every year to their goal of stopping ANY coverage of what is plainly the most powerful political and economic congress in the world. What BBC online called 'The Ultimate Conspiracy Theory'.

Those who enquire about Bilderberg's power are expected to wait with baited breath for an incomplete list of participants, delivered as the last luminary's car leaves the hotel. I know embarrassingly powerful people are removed because I spoke to the woman who served Tony Blair his breakfast at Turnberry in 1998. He was not on that year's list. I suppose Kissinger and friends get some kind of cheap 'kick' smuggling their superstars in and out.

If leaks are correct, this year's meeting will involve a 'dance macabre' celebrating the outbreak of 'democracy' in Iraq where only 80 people a day are shot dead or blown up and looking forward to repeating that 'success' in Iran. In secret session just a stone's throw from the Skull and Bones' Deer Island in the St. Lawrence river, they will bemoan the 'sectarian divide' and forget that the al-Askariya congregation in Samarra, wiped out in February, was one of those many mosques where Shi'ite and Sunni worshipped together.

So which 'faction' was responsible for killing their own people? Or was it the SAS, caught a few months earlier with explosives and dressed as arabs, or the CIA or Mossad who really destroyed that holy place and killed over 160 people? This is the equivalent of having the SAS demolish Westminster Cathedral and blaming it on Arabs. Think on.

Not since Dr Goebbels in the 1940's has the Western public been subjected to such daily repeated lies right across the news media about Iran, the Western plutocrats' latest 'rogue state'. In an incredible feat of myopia, the BBC scrupulously fails to mention that Iran is keeping to the letter of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Israel with its bristling nuclear arsenal still refuses to sign.

How easily the BBC mandarins have scrapped their motto - Nation shall Speak Peace unto Nation - as they fire off volleys of pseudo-intellectual cover for another round of carnage. Hundreds of thousands, even millions more Islamic murders are in prospect. In the vilest betrayal BBC Current Affairs managers and editors have turn a blind eye to the fate of the Jews just sixty years ago.

Meanwhile their fellow travellers at Bilderberg prepare to rotate their palms towards us, smile, and explain that they are nothing more than an innocent private club. Kissinger, Rockefeller and the rest will be crossing their fingers behind their back and hoping we don't notice the ten wealthiest bankers, five most prestigious European royals, four richest oil men, three biggest media barons (now minus bang to rights Conrad Black - well done Mounties!) and a bunch of frightened politicians are dreaming up more nightmares to poison our children's future.

Rather than the old silence, the New Labour press here in the UK, The Guardian now paints Bilderberg as the victim, defending their right to neither confirm nor deny, doffing the cap, and failing to inform their readers that this unelected body sits at the global black heart of the capitalism they make a pretence of opposing.

As Britain's respected daily paper of the left The Guardian Jason Walsh Blog's defence last week of Bilderberg, Skull and Bones and Neo-Con puppet Blair are appalling betrayals.

Scrupulously ignored in their and the BBC's coverage is the fact that Bilderberg's founder, recently deceased Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was a enthusiastic member of Hitler's elite SS before World War II. Neither will they mention umbilical ties to the freemasons' 500,000 strong religious cult whose most trusted personal assistant Andrew Palmer organised the last UK Bilderberg conference.

CLIP - Read the rest and much much more at

Also, interestingly, as mentioned at
(...) It might also interest you to know that Steven Harper, Canada's newly-installed conservative Prime Minister has been seen and photographed at Bilderberg meetings for years. Is that a surprise? Watch a video clip or two of these secret Bilderberg meetings. Harper refuses to answer the question as to whether or not he's attending the secret meeting this time around. The leader of Canada, having secret meetings with corporate criminals and hiding it from the public. Harper has even stated that he will do no more press conferences . This is more secrecy coming from Canada's leader, a man who is obligated to serve the people. Way to go Harper! CLIP

Secretive power brokers meeting coming to Ottawa? (May 24, 2006)
OTTAWA - The meetings of a secretive global think-tank would bring 100 of the world's most powerful and influential figures to Ottawa next month and make an Ottawa hotel the host of deliberations on such weighty issues as the direction of global oil markets and potential military action against Iran.Reports circulating on the Internet say this year's Bilderberg Conference will be held June 8-11 at the Brookstreet Hotel a rumour the hotel would not confirm. But, if a gathering in Ottawa is anything like past Bilderbergs, invitees will be drawn from the pages of International Who's Who, with a emphasis on political and corporate leadership and strong representation of the oil and banking industries. Guest lists typically include names like Kissinger, Rockefeller and Soros.The obsessive secrecy that accompanies Bilderberg conferences could also draw Ottawa into the insane conspiracy theories that surround the group. The Bilderberg has been accused of being everything from a Zionist cabal building a single global government to a secret star-chamber that seeks to fix the price of oil and presidential elections.Even some rational critics suspect the Bilderberg's meetings set the economic and political agenda for much of the industrialized world without any public oversight or accountability. They denounce the Bilderberg as elitist and overly secretive, calling it an anti-democratic gathering of ''the high priests of globalization.''The conference takes its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands, site of the first meeting in 1954. The group's intent was to link governments and economies in Europe and North America amid the Cold War. But its mandate has evolved, and it now exerts a global influence with interests in foreign policy in general and energy in particular.Several Canadian political figures have spoken at Bilderbergs, including prime ministers Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien, New Brunswick premiers Bernard Lord and Frank McKenna, and former Ontario premier Mike Harris. Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office would not say Tuesday if he's been invited to attend the rumoured Ottawa meetings. Harper attended the 2003 conference in Versailles, France. CLIP

Subject: Urgent Appeal to our Members, Friends and Supporters

Call for Donations to Aid Palestinian Hospitals

The financial crisis affecting the Palestinian Authority (PA) due to the stoppage of international aid and the freezing of the tax revenue by the state of Israel, has had a grave impact on the Palestinian population in the occupied territories and has led to an acute shortage of basic needs, such as medicines and food.

A number of Palestinian hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza Strip have asked us at Physicians for Human Rights-Israel to assist them in acquiring a number of medicines and medical equipment needed for the daily functions of the hospitals. During visits we have conducted to several hospitals we witnessed the harsh reality of a scarcity of life saving medicines and medical equipment to be used in the operating rooms.

Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, together with several Israeli peace and human rights groups, began a campaign to raise funds in order to aid the Palestinian areas that were hardest hit as a result of the financial crisis, and to provide, as best we can, some of the urgent medical needs of the Palestinian hospitals, with whom we have been in contact for many years.

Additionally, we are handling individual cases of patients from the occupied territories who have not received permits needed to enter Israel for urgent treatment, or patients that the PA is not paying for their treatment, due to the financial crisis. This activity also involves legal costs.

Physicians for Human Rights-Israel feels obligated to support our colleagues working in the Palestinian health system, who in this difficult time are doing all they can in order to grant the best medical service to the Palestinian population, and to aid patients and medical teams who are carrying the burden of this difficult crisis.

We turn to you with this urgent appeal asking that you donate to this activity according to your ability. In light of the urgency of the matter, we ask that those who are able to donate contact us as soon as possible, so that we can begin to transfer the aid immediately. Physicians for Human Rights-Israel plans on organizing shipments within the upcoming days.

We kindly request that you pass this message on to others, with the hope that they will answer our request and join us in this aid mission.

May 23, 2006

No tsunami as predicted; don’t lapse into fear; importance of discernment; frenetic energy when dark lies revealed; indictments coming; Moussaoi trial; “hooker-gate”; loyal CIA vs. Illuminati-controlled faction; darkness in the Vatican; religious devout reactions; telepathic communication; mass consciousness; Morgellons disease

S: Hi, Matthew dear! I have the questions ready.

MATTHEW: What a beautiful and inspiring sight to enjoy, Mother! It’s such a delight for me, just as it is for you, to see the young deer calmly nibbling the bushes only a few yards up the slope from your window. Now, may we start with your copying my May 15 reply to Jean, please?

S: Yes, of course. …. Here it is:

S: Good morning, Matthew dear. Jean Hudon is asking about a tsunami hitting the East Coast of the United States and killing the many millions of people living along the coastline. Please comment on this possibility.

MATTHEW: Good morning to you, dear soul, and yes, I’ll happily tell you that this “predicted” event will NOT happen. There will be NO geophysical events of that magnitude in this unprecedented era on Earth. She has requested that all possible of her life forms accompany her on her ascension journey, and two conditions determine who shall do this: The first is absorbing the light constantly being beamed to all of humankind, as the light is what will enable physical survival in the higher frequencies of Earth’s destination. The second is the longevity choice in individual soul contracts, and the many millions of souls residing along the East Coast of the United States have not chosen to transition simultaneously at some given moment within the next few days.

While it is true that remaining negativity on the planet must be relieved and earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and storms will continue to achieve this purpose, the technology of our extraterrestrial brothers and sisters has been and will continue alleviating the most profound effects of those happenings by leveling out the energy release. Further, if one’s soul contract has been fulfilled and the time of transition is at hand, the person will leave this physical experience to continue evolution in the next spirit lifetime regardless of the safety of his or her location; the same is true if the original contract is amended, which also is by soul level choosing. If the contract calls for continued physical experiencing, the person will survive the same event that others do not.

We understand that the majority of the world’s population doesn’t have the opportunity to read the messages transmitted by high light beings to their respected receivers, but the light intensity is reaching all who are willing with the effect that communication between the soul and the consciousness is becoming clear. This includes a sense of serenity even in the midst of frenzy if you will but allow this to be the foundation of your consciousness.

Living in fear is NOT what you chose to be a constant in your current experiencing, but an emotion you chose to overcome in this time of spiritual renewal in your world. We encourage you—we urge you!—to stay steadfast in the joy and strength of the light, remembering that wherever you are is where you chose to be and that myriad helpers are accompanying you on your pathway.

MATTHEW: Thank you. There is a deeper reason for my request than confirming that the tsunami will not occur, which by now I believe is the conclusion of all. We are seeing that when information about those kinds of predicted, or potential, events flows through the Internet, even some of the staunchest of light workers allow fear to enter thoughts and feelings. This is understandable in the population that has no knowledge whatsoever of what is underway on Earth, but on your behalf, it is a concern to us when you who are enlightened become fearful.

Three factors are at issue here, and I have addressed all of them in previous messages. First, I repeat what I replied to Jean, that if in one’s soul contract the time of transition has come, the person will leave this lifetime regardless of how safe the surroundings; and if the original contract is amended to include earlier departure, that, too, is by soul level choice. If the contract calls for continued experiencing, the person will survive amidst a crowd transitioning to Nirvana.  

Second, fearful thoughts and feelings dim your light, and for however briefly that may be, your psyche is vulnerable to entry by a dark streamer that will enable more fearful circumstances to beset you because the energy you are emitting is pulling them to you. Even masses of Earth’s peoples in fear will not slow the pace of her journey, but it will affect those individuals’ pathways. We are with you every moment to reinforce your steadfastness in the light and help you hold a positive vision of the events that are rapidly unfolding, and because of our abiding love for each one of you, it is sad for us to see any lapses in your own resolve.

And third, part of spiritual evolvement is using your innate powers of perception and discernment and relying upon self to distinguish truth from falsehood. If you are in doubt about the authenticity of any information, ask your soul to tell you—the answer comes as intuition. Like all other abilities that need to be developed, this takes practice, so do not be discouraged if you don’t master it immediately. We at this station have been enlightening, guiding and encouraging you through our messages, and our infinite love and light-beaming always are with you; nevertheless, it is essential that you use your own powerful knowingness and not depend upon external answers.        

Please know that this is not a reprimand! Nor is it a call for you to meet our expectations! We are responding to an urgent plea from your collective souls to help you fearlessly stay the light course in the coming months, when much will be revealed and some backlash is logically anticipated as the steadily increasing light shines ever more brightly on the deeds of the darkness. Your last calendar year was a pivotal time as the deeply entrenched dark pockets were dislodged; this year is disclosure time as those pockets become public knowledge. Not only will the dark ones resist being thrust into the light of widespread awareness, but also there will be some energetic resistance by fence-straddlers who are conflicted between personal interest in maintaining the political and economic status quo and welcoming the truths as they are revealed and the resultant changes in leadership.

Why would ones with vested interest in the status quo welcome changes? Mother, it’s because they fear the policies that are destructive to the environment, the outcome if the Bush cabal proceeds with its plan for nuclear strikes at Iran, the unfathomable and rising national debt, and the possibility that the growing numbers of financially-desperate and politically-disgusted citizens could lead to anarchy. These fence-straddlers are rational—they can see the insanity in the government’s blindness to those situations, and while their luxurious lifestyles are all-important, logic tells them that if changes aren’t made, everything can go to hell in a hand basket, as the expression goes.

Regardless of how eager you are to greet the changes that lead to Earth’s Golden Era, it is necessary to be aware of the intensified energy in the beginning stages. The combination of reactions to the disclosures of truth will generate energy of an obvious frenetic nature on the planet similar to what we’ve been seeing for some time in Earth’s energy field of potential. This hasn’t happened before because so much of what has been transpiring is largely unsuspected, let alone known, and when the facts about the extent of corruption, deception and depravity in your governments are known, the collective consciousness will create a new and frenzied global dynamic that will add to the negativity that still must be released. Further, for a while longer you will feel the effects of the manmade electromagnetic waves especially designed for your emotional instability, physical stress and distress, and mind-controlled programming. When you know what to anticipate, simply by remaining steadfast in the light you are prepared for the encounter! 

Now, Mother, that said, I will happily answer questions on your list. I know some are pertinent to what I just mentioned about frenzied energy on the near horizon.

S: I think a lot of them are. I’ve combined many and will start with those about the US government because even readers in other countries want to know about these situations. What is Patrick Fitzgerald doing to get more indictments; will President Bush and Vice President Cheney be impeached; has Karl Rove already been served with indictment papers; when will the truth about 9/11 come out?

MATTHEW: Very well, following the indictment of “Scooter” Libby—the tip of the iceberg, so to speak—Patrick Fitzgerald and his staff continued their relentless efforts to find documentation and record testimonies showing that culpability in many illegal acts goes straight to the president. This was strongly suspected prior to Libby’s indictment, but irrefutable evidence and appropriate charges are essential so that no technicality in the legal processes can delay or derail the forthcoming suits. At this juncture, we see indictments rather than the far weaker impeachment proceedings for Bush and Cheney. Rove has been served, and many other indictments will follow due to the exhaustive investigation that includes the extent of the lies in the official claims about 9/11. No, I can’t give you an exact timetable for public announcements, but I can say that the pressure being felt by almost all in this administration is building to a crescendo and motivating growing numbers to tell what they know.

S: What will happen regarding Bush and company’s threats toward Iran; do you see China and Russia militarily opposing US air strikes against Iran?

MATTHEW: The field of potential hasn’t changed because the same ones who are causing havoc in other areas still are intent upon conquering Iran, however totally irrational their plan is. It is as I have mentioned in previous messages, that there may be incursions, but any attempts to use nuclear warheads on missiles will be failures—our ET family’s technology will see to that. We know the natural keen interest of China and Russia relative to what the US will do, but both of those countries are first and foremost interested in their respective national development progress, not escalating any war scenario; so you could say that in the field of potential, the energy of their interest is neutral.

S: That’s good! Moussaoi’s trial has become a sort of comedy of errors; what’s really going on?

MATTHEW: We view this as a pathetically transparent effort to show the people of the United States that their government will leave no stone unturned to prosecute someone who is “guilty” of involvement in the 9/11 tragedy. Moussaoi is guilty only of being handy for their purpose. Between drugs, sleep deprivation and electrical shocks, his mind is addled rather than programmed as intended, and that accounts for his bizarre behavior. This trial showcases the injustice in the country’s justice system.

S: I agree with that! Can electronic voting machines be re-worked so an accurate count is assured; will Diebold and any other “fixed” voting machines be replaced by paper ballots; since I’m afraid my vote won’t count, is there any reason for me to vote; will a voting system in any country ever be honest?

MATTHEW: I don’t know what secure measures will be developed to insure an honest ballot count, but even without that security, the energy in the intent of your vote contributes significantly to hastening the day when honesty is restored to voting systems in all countries. Yes, absolutely this will happen as the dark influence loses its hold on governments. This hold is cracking in countries where it isn’t as obvious as it is in the United States, and eventually all national, state, province and community leaders will be spiritually evolved souls.      

S: Please comment on “hooker-gate” that was reported on a CNN news program.

MATTHEW: The term “hooker-gate” is much more frivolous than the reality, which is nothing less than a vast web of darkness that for years has been pervasive within the US government and extends to visiting foreign dignitaries, multinational corporate lobbyists and other Illuminati figures. With the intention of creating blackmail situations much more than offering entertainment, a “harem” to satisfy heterosexual, homosexual and pedophilia interests is available “24/7,” and satanic rituals are part of it. Films of the unimaginable depravity along with proof of widespread bribery have resulted in congressional votes that fly in the face of obvious national needs and deny the constitutional rights of citizens. Even though the people of the United States are clearly showing their growing disapproval of Bush, his cabinet and the Congress, and Internet reports abound with sound information that justifies the people’s shaken faith, still the country will be reeling in shock when the revelations about these politicians come forth.

S: Why did Porter Goss abruptly resign as CIA chief for no apparent reason?

MATTHEW: However valuable Goss’s involvement in Illuminati’s terrorist activities, which furthered that aspect of their insidious agenda, his abrupt departure was ordered by the topmost members of that dark group. Investigations into the various criminal dealings of the government tied Goss to a number of areas that would expose the Illuminati-controlled CIA faction, and they couldn’t allow that to happen to a “sitting” chief. Although their efforts to keep this from surfacing will be futile, there can be the official statement that when Goss’s betrayal of national interests was discovered, he was immediately asked to resign and once again “faulty intelligence,” this time linked to him, can be blamed. Since all official statements are only assertions with nothing substantive to back them, that would be no different.

I need to digress a moment for some clarification. First, many within the CIA are loyal public servants dedicated to their mission of protecting the United States from potential aggressor nations. With highly specialized jobs and information divulged on a need-to-know basis, those in lower ranking positions don’t know what happens in the higher levels of authority, much less that some of their colleagues are rogue agents carrying out “black ops” missions for the Illuminati and are not the covert patriots as contended.

An example of both CIA factions in action and their opposing purposes is the collusion between the White House and select members of the media that “leaked” Valerie Plame as a CIA agent. The consensus that it was “payback” for her husband’s intelligence-gathering trip and his findings that disagreed with the official line about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction is not correct. But it was “payback.” It was the Illuminati’s retaliation for the actions of Ms. Plame and her staff of operatives that prevented the “black ops” from hiding WMD in Iraq, where inspectors would easily find them and prove that Bush’s repetitious assertion was right. Although that prevention effort did not deter the ones determined to invade and control Iraq, it does not lessen one iota the true patriotism of Plame and her operatives who acted to uphold the Constitution and defend their country.
Another point of clarification is this: The most powerful of the Illuminati are not public figures such as presidents, premiers, ambassadors, members of Congress or Parliaments, or corporate CEOs, board chairs or head of the Federal Reserve. On the contrary, the peak Illuminati work in secrecy and silence out of public sight as they control those prominent figures.

S: What about Queen Elizabeth?  

MATTHEW: She is a rare exception insofar as being in the public eye. However, she is portrayed as a ceremonial figurehead who serves England’s enjoyment of the pomp and romance of royal traditions, whereas she actually is among the most powerful of the Illuminati due to the Crown’s vast holdings. Still greater influence, though, is centered in the Vatican, with its pernicious outreach of virtual mind control over its religious adherents and ruthlessness in preserving its internal secret societies and untold wealth.

S: This question fits here: With all the talk about the Da Vinci Code movie, is it another attempt to divert attention from something sinister?

MATTHEW: We see it as the opposite—the sinister ones would like to divert attention from the movie. In the timing of the universe, the moment is right for this story, although presented as fiction, to reach the millions of soul searchers for whom the Catholic Church’s archaic rules have worn thin and allegations and lawsuits against abusive priests keep growing. The darkness within the papal hierarchy, the most deeply entrenched on the planet, will be the most shocking revelation to your world.  

Again I tell you, the greatest challenge to light workers will be the reactions of the religiously devout who will defend their unwavering belief in the dogma they have been taught. Your history shows that styles of political rule rise and fall, philosophies come and go, and science unanimously agreed upon gives way to new theories; but religion is God’s or Allah’s or Yahweh’s or some deity’s sacred orders and the immutable foundation of many millions’ faith, and therein lies the challenge. 

S: Matthew, several readers have asked for guidance in “re-educating” whoever is willing to listen.

MATTHEW: Many among you chose as one of your lifetime missions the enlightenment of those whose lives will be shattered when the truth about the dark origins of all religious dogmas is revealed, thus you are innately prepared for this tremendously important service. Classes to assist you will be available, but for insight in this moment, it will be most helpful for you and for those who are at all receptive if you can perceive the truthful disclosures as they do. Beyond showing compassion for their extreme distress and patience with their resistance, the wisest approach is to listen to how deeply the revelations affected them—their feelings of betrayal are both valid and strong. Some of you will be addressing large audiences and others will be helping on a one-to-one basis; many of you who are pondering a meaningful purpose in your life soon will learn this is one such purpose. It won’t be necessary to try to persuade anyone to believe as you do, and arguing about what is truth and what is lies isn’t part of your service either. Not all of the religious devout will be able to see the light of the truth. Many will be hostile, and some will resort to violence to protect the “righteousness” of their beliefs and self-assumed missionary roles; others will be deeply depressed and founder in confusion. It is likely that at some point light workers will encounter ones with those varied reactions, but again, you are innately prepared for this phase of Earth’s transition.       

S: Thank you for that insight and reassurance! Is this the end time of karma on Earth? Please comment on healers who offer karma releasing service.

MATTHEW: Earth has completed her third density karma, which is enabling her ascension, and while every soul on the planet chose to do the same, many are lagging due to fear and its various expressions, such as greed, tyranny, brutality, resentment, prejudice, apathy, egotism—all third density characteristics. It is our fervent prayer that these souls will respond to the ever-increasing light beaming from afar, adding to that which you are generating on the planet. No one can “release” a soul’s chosen karmic experiences; however, cellular patterning that once served well but now seems a hindrance may be cleared if the soul’s energy field is receptive.     

S: Is it true that souls won’t ascend with Earth unless they are still living in 2012?

MATTHEW: Residency on Earth for any specific duration in this unique time is neither a requirement nor a guarantee for accompanying Earth in her ascension. In the context of your planet, “ascension” is actual movement from one energy placement into a “higher,” or lighter, placement, but the term has been incorrectly used to denote bodies physically lifted off the planet and rising into the ethers. In the eternal life of the soul, ascension is spiritual growth, soul evolvement, and each soul experiences this in many places in the universe while “ascending” into the Oneness of All—a return to our Beginning.

S: Can spirit beings read each others’ thoughts and as a result, lying isn’t possible in spirit worlds?

MATTHEW: Although we souls in spirit most frequently communicate with each other telepathically, or “reading thoughts,” which gives no allowance for deceiving another, there is an energy shield in which we can operate that permits us to keep our thoughts private. In “spirit-calling-Earth,” or really, vice versa, we are with you the very instant you think of us, so obviously we know your thoughts, too, and we also feel the same sensations you do; but we honor the universal code of privacy that means we never intrude upon your thoughts unless you invite us. With your guardian angels, it is different—they’re constantly aware of your thoughts because they are tasked with your physical safety. It is another matter also with the countless thought forms shooting up from Earth into her field of potential—that’s where we see and track significant happenings on the planet and assess the energy momentum that determines the possibility, probability or certainty of their course. That’s how we are able to report to you what is occurring and, as accurately as we can, tell you where things are going.

But the awareness of your thoughts and feelings is not restricted to beings in spirit. Souls in advanced civilizations have the same capability—witness the many physical beings who gave information to my mother for the books and my messages to her when I am in a body that I manifested to fit in with the civilizations who invited me to their worlds. And please remember that not all souls in spirit or ET embodiment are light beings—the dark ones know you as well as we do, and they do not observe the honor code of no intrusion into your thoughts. That’s why we repeatedly urge you to always think positively, to stay steadfast in the light and to hold tight to your vision of peace and harmony and love throughout Earth so there can be no entryway for the darkness to assail you.

S: It’s a good reminder, dear. Matthew, is Earth’s energy field of potential the same as mass consciousness?

MATTHEW: No, and I’m glad for your question so I can expound upon my comments. All the thought forms from Creator’s Beginning are the cosmic mass consciousness, something rarely even considered on Earth, yet it is from those that our universe and its Supreme Ruler were created. All thought forms since the creation of our universe are the universal mass consciousness, and that is where the actual substance of the forms resides in a universally big pot of soup with new ingredients continuously being stirred in and “tasted.” When someone’s thought zings in and, via the universal law of attraction, attaches itself to a like thought form, a hologram of the pairing makes its way back to the thinker on the planet and simultaneously duplicates itself in Earth’s energy field of potential.       

S: Interesting! Thank you. Is the new disease called Morgellons manmade; what is Morgellons disease, and is it linked to chemtrails; what can we do to protect ourselves from chemtrails’ effects?

MATTHEW: All diseases throughout your history have been the work of the dark forces, and for 30 or more years, puppets under its control have directed the laboratory development of diseases known as AIDS, SARs, Avian Flu and various other “flu” names given the virus concoctions that in some cases are airborne and in others are spread through inoculations. These dark assaults to compromise your bodies’ functioning and natural healing ability are exacerbated by the electromagnetic waves in your cell phones, computers, and the very atmosphere that sustains your life. Other factors are the effects of pollution in your water, soil and air, and the proliferation of prescription drugs with their contraindications. This is a formidable combination intended to cause illness, debilitation, depression and death, and to some extent, it is difficult to avoid at this time.      

The toxins called Morgellons disease are a recent addition to the solution in chemtrails. Until Earth reaches the frequencies where no disease can exist because nothing of dark nature can, the best counter to these new toxins as well as the many others in chemtrails is taking all sensible measures to maintain sound health and strong immune systems. I am not a medical adviser, but I can suggest that if a day is sunny and there are no chemtrails, do absorb the sun’s rays using pure aloe as skin protection—the sun is not the menace that the medical establishment makes it out to be! This seems a simplistic aid, but during and after the trails are laid, stay indoors if you can, and if you can’t, cover your body completely. Use natural rather than chemical products to reduce or relieve symptoms and try simple topical remedies such as vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and pure aloe.

And pray. Never underestimate the power of prayer! Remembering that prayer is your every thought and feeling, thinking and feeling positively about staying healthy is your best fortification against disease. Boost your positive outlook by frequently saying “Thank you!” to our diligent ET family who are diminishing the effectiveness of chemtrails’ most toxic elements.

Gratitude for the myriad blessings and beauty Earth provides generates a fortress of light for you personally and for your planet. Feeling gratitude—one of the many expressions of love—lifts the spirit, lightens the heart and lets the soul sing. 

Mother, isn’t that a splendid thought to leave with readers? I add my loving thanks for the light that all of you are radiating out into the universe.

Subject: [ECETI News] The Race towards Armageddon

It seems our leadership and the religious right: which has gone so terribly wrong are on the fast track to Armageddon. The wars, destruction of the environment and unbridled greed according to their logic is going to bring about the rapture and the second coming. It seems they actually believe these actions are going to earn them a ticket to heaven. Let us imagine St Peter at the gate and these delusional people standing in line.

The first thing they would have to accept is they are not the decision makers. St Peter would gather them all together and tell them rather than address you all individually to save time I will address the group. It seems you were all willing participants in war, torture, the death of many innocent men, women and children all of which were praying to heaven before their demise. You participated in deceptive murderous acts misleading millions and unprecedented greed at the expense of humanity and the Earth. It was not enough to war on each other you chose to war on the very platform for life, God's Creation and to add insult to injury you acted as if you were doing all of these acts under the orders and approval of God. Now as far as your light review where you will all have to face all that you have said and done as well as feel the pain and suffering inflicted upon others and Nature that would take us eons.

We are real busy now repairing all the damage that was done and assisting those on Earth who are still aligned with the true wishes of God which is to live in peace and harmony with each other and Nature. They are cooperating with each other acting in service to humanity and the Earth. I am sorry there is no place in heaven for you, we are fresh out of virgins for the other group but we have created a place where you can all work things out together. You will receive a very warm greeting; ignore the stench and screams those are just others experiencing all the pain suffering and destruction of the environment they have brought upon humanity and the Earth. By the way, all those dollars they thought they could take with them are what is fueling the fires. They should have used them while on Earth to help others.

Enjoy your stay and before you go I just wanted to add the Earth will ascend beyond your ability to return but don't worry we have a place for you where you can return over and over until you get things right. There are lots of leeches and predators there. In fact there is every imaginable form of life insect and animal that would love to suck the blood and take a bite out of you. It is a reminder of the leech and predator within. St Peter then pulled the lever, The clouds separated and a fiery pit opened upon which they descended screaming, shaking their fists demanding to be saved. The clouds came back together and there was peace. I asked St Peter if God really created a hell. He said no it was their creation, another time line of their own doing. Their image of Armageddon upon which the rapture never came for they were delusional to think their actions would earn them a ticket to heaven. God is Love and Gods favorite words are as you wish. What you wish upon others always returns to self. Armageddon in truth means the great uncovering and quickening of karma. Be well
