VP Cheney witnesses Auschwitz death camp 6 days after being confronted with pictures of victims of American death camps in Washington, D.C.

January 27, 2005 was the 60th Anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in southern Poland by the Russians. VP Dick Cheney was there representing the United States less than one week after he was confronted with the mutilated faces and bodies of the victims of the American death camps in Washington, D.C. by Missionaries to the Preborn, on Friday, January 21st, the day after the Bush inauguration. Approximately 1.5 million lives were exterminated in Auschwitz over the years of its operation. During the four years of the Bush-Cheney administration, over 4 million lives have been exterminated in the almost 750 American death camps (http://www.ldi.org/) which commit genocide by surgical abortion.

While President Bush spoke by telephone to the tens of thousands gathered for the annual March for Life on Monday, January 24th, he offered no tangible, concrete plan to end the American Abortion Holocaust, which he and the U.S. Congress have the power and authority to do, within one month’s time, by invoking the U.S. Constitution’s provision in Article III., Section 2., to limit the appellate jurisdiction of the U.S. supreme Court, and pass the Right to Life Act (such as HR 579 in the 108th Congress) by a simple majority vote. The 32-year American Abortion Holocaust could be over in one month’s time if the Republican President, and the Republican-majority U.S. Congress, had the vision, will, and integrity to act on the national Republican Party platform plank on the sanctity of human life.

Vice President Cheney had these words to say in Poland on Thursday about the Nazi death camps:

“The story of the camps reminds us that evil is real and must be called by its name and confronted,” Vice President Cheney said in Krakow before traveling to the camp for the ceremony. [When are you going to confront the evil of child-murder in your own country Mr. Vice President ?]

Pray that God would reveal to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney that they have a duty to confront the evil of abortion in America, which kills 3,000 plus unborn Americans daily, by surgical abortion alone, and likely multiple times that number by chemical abortion.

While the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews in their death camps, Americans have murdered 45 million human beings (by surgical abortion alone) in ours.

60 years later, horror of Auschwitz recalled

World leaders, survivors mark death camp’s liberation amid fears of resurgent anti-Semitism

From wire reports

OSWIECIM, Poland ­ Dusted by falling snow and surrounded by barbed wire, world leaders mourned the victims of the Holocaust on Thursday, the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the biggest Nazi death camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Survivors and more than 30 leaders lit candles in the ruins of the camp, which claimed a fifth of the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. Up to 1.5 million people died in the gas chambers here, set up in occupied Poland. Gypsies, Poles and Russians also were killed here in the town now known as Oswiecim.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, among the world leaders at the ceremonies on Thursday, recalled his father’s ordeal in the death camp he described as a “sacred place” for him and his family.

“My father was a wounded soldier and he was in Auschwitz. He had a tattoo 11367 on his chest,” Yushchenko, who was inaugurated on Sunday, said at a forum in Krakow before the ceremonies.

Andriy Yushchenko, like all of Auschwitz’s forced labor prisoners, was identified by his tattooed number while in the camp. The elder Yushchenko was there from February to July 1944, before being transferred to other camps. He was among 14,000 Soviet prisoners of war held at Auschwitz.

The camp was liberated on Jan. 27, 1945, by the advancing Soviet army; stunned soldiers released the 7,000 emaciated prisoners left behind as the Germans withdrew. “I want to say to all people around the world, this should not happen again,” said Anatoly Shapiro, the commander of the troops who first entered Auschwitz.

Vows of “never again” came against a background of resurging anti-Semitism in Europe as well as mass killings in Africa and the Balkans in recent years.

Jewish leaders urged Europeans not to erase the history of Auschwitz from their conscience. “We fear anti-Semitism. We fear Holocaust denial. We fear a distortedapproach by the youth of Europe,” Israeli President Moshe Katsav said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was ashamed of acts of anti-Semitism in Russia today and vowed action to eradicate it. “We must unequivocally and unanimously tell present and future generations: No one has the right to be indifferent to anti-Semitism, nationalism, racial and religious intolerance,” Putin said.

In the commemoration ceremonies, candles burned along the snow-covered tracks used during the war to take Jews and others in cattle trains to the camp. A whistle, the sound of a stopping train and a door being flung open were played in Birkenau, the camp’s main extermination center, to symbolize the arrival of the victims.

“The story of the camps reminds us that evil is real and must be called by its name and confronted,” Vice President Cheney said in Krakow before traveling to the camp for the ceremony.

The anniversary was marked elsewhere on Thursday.

•Members of the European Parliament stood in a minute of silence to pay tribute to the victims of the Holocaust and to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Parliament President Josep Borrell said it was important never to forget what happened.

•Auschwitz survivor Arno Lustiger brought the German parliament to its feet with a vivid speech describing his trip through “hell” and his emotional rescue in the waning weeks of World War II.

Lustiger passed through seven death camps. He was one of 4,000 prisoners sent on a death march from Auschwitz in January 1945. After being discovered half-dead by American troops, he celebrated the end of the war and his 21st birthday on May 8, 1945. “This double-celebration, I will never forget it,” Lustiger said in an address that received an extended ovation from German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, government ministers and members of the Bundestag.

•The son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi criticized Arabs who denied the extermination of Jews happened. “It is incorrect to deny the Holocaust because I think the Holocaust is a fact,” Seif al-Islam Gadhafi said at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. “Really it was a tragedy of modern history. If some Arabs are denying this, I think it is incorrect.”

In Switzerland, a court ruled that computer giant IBM will have to face a trial in Geneva over a lawsuit by Gypsies claiming the company’s punch-card machines helped the Nazis commit mass murder more efficiently, the plaintiffs’ attorney said Thursday. Details of the Dec. 29 ruling were only made public Thursday. IBM has consistently denied it was in any way responsible for the way its machines were used in the Holocaust.

Missionaries to the Preborn show bloody pictures to President Bush:

http://www.missionariestopreborn.com/default.asp?fuseaction=photo_2005dctour

Dear Friends of the Preborn,

On Friday, January 21st, 2005, the day after the Inauguration, God providentially gave us the opportunity to show President Bush, Vice -president Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and former president George Bush Sr. & his wife Barbara (the President’s parents) the bloody photographs of the murdered preborn! (see photo below) Here’s how it happened:

We arrived at the intersection of Massachusetts’s Ave. & 34th St. in what is known as Embassy Row. The embassies of all the foreign countries are located in this stretch. The Naval Observatory and the Vice-president’s house are also located there. When our bus pulled up with our 45 people on board, we jumped off and began to unload our photographs. Immediately police arrived and threatened our driver to move on. We only were able to get about 10 signs off before he left with the cargo hatches still open. He went about two blocks away where he was again surrounded by police and ordered to leave, but before doing so, we were able to remove another 30 photographs from the bus.

I was questioned by four different levels of law enforcement and Secret Service, and learned from them that an entourage was coming out shortly. We immediately sent everyone down the road with the photographs, spreading out down the street nearly half-a-mile. Law enforcement officials were pretty high strung and wanted to know who we were, who we were targeting, and how we knew to be there at that time. I explained that this had been planned weeks in advance and that we were targeting anyone who happened to be driving by.

As we stood there, helicopters flew overhead, the name ‘Missionaries to the Preborn’ was being talked about on every walkie-talkie in earshot, and we were declared by law enforcement to “appear to be peaceful.” Moments later out came the entourage, and it was none other than the President himself! Then came the Vice -president minutes later, then George Sr. & Barbara Bush, and finally Condaleeza Rice! We were the only ones on this quiet tree-lined street as traffic had been closed down. All of them drove by with nothing to see but us and our photographs for nearly half a mile! The main photo we had over and over again was “God Bless America?” with a large picture of a baby slaughtered by abortion.

Not only this, but the truth truck we had running with us for the three days we were in Washington, DC was the first vehicle stopped by police coming from the other direction before the entourage came out. Therefore when the entourage came out, the very first thing they saw was a billboard-size photograph of a baby killed by abortion with the word real large – “Abortion” and a large Scripture verse at the top which said – “The Lord hates…hands that shed innocent blood.” Of all the vehicles for the police to stop first, they stopped our truth truck as hundreds of vehicles were backed up behind it! The men in the truck saw Bush look directly at it as he drove by.

Never could we have orchestrated such events. The Lord obviously wanted these powerful people to see the pictures. He must have a purpose for bringing about what happened. We were humbled to be used in the process and prayed earnestly afterwards that the Lord would use it for whatever purpose He had for bringing it about. We asked the Lord to put an intent in Bush’s heart to take action on behalf of the preborn and use his position of power in a righteous manner. Please join us in prayer to this end also.

On Thursday, the day of the Inaugural, the security around the President was immense and access to him prevented. Yet the very next day, the Lord lays him in our lap and gives us a personal audience with him on behalf of the preborn. We still stand amazed.

I will send a report out soon detailing some of the rest of our trip out to DC.

May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!

Separated unto the Gospel,

Pastor Matt Trewhella

Inaugural: Bush invoked Illuminati vision for a ‘new order of the ages’

(Novus Ordo Seclorum / New World Order)

President George W. Bush, Second Inaugural Address,
given outside the United States Capitol, on January 20, 2005:

“When our Founders declared a new order of the ages;…” [speech text below]

President George W. Bush signaled his ongoing commitment to the Illuminati vision displayed on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States (www.greatseal.com), themotto ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ (‘a new order of the ages’), at the base of the unfinished Tower of Babel (Genesis 11)pyramid: erecting the modern Tower of Babel of a New World Order, i.e.;
– one-world government,
– one-world money, and
– one-world religion.

In this public declaration on a global stage to continue tobuild the New World Order, George W. Bush is followingin the footsteps of his father, fellow Yale Skull and Bones occultic secret society member, George H.W. Bush:

President George H.W. Bush, State of the Union Address, given at the United States Capitol, on January 29, 1991 :

http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0900156.html

“What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea ­ a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law.” “The world can therefore seize this opportunity to fulfill the long-held promise of a new world order ­ where brutality will go unrewarded, and aggression will meet collective resistance.”

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.”

Text of Bush’s Inaugural Speech

Associated Press

WASHINGTON – The following is the text of President Bush’s inaugural address Thursday:

———————-

Vice President Cheney, Mr. Chief Justice, President Carter, President Bush, President Clinton, members of the United States Congress, reverend clergy, distinguished guests, fellow citizens:

[CCL note: Vice President Cheney (R), President Carter (D), President Bush, Sr. (R), and President Clinton (D) are ALL now, or have been, members of the one-world government advocacy organization called the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).These men would not have been given the stamp of approval by Establishment elites to run for their high offices if they did not affirm the NWO vision of the Illuminati/CFR. Read on-line: www.thenewamerican.com/tna/1995/vo11no10/vo11no10_tyranny.htm. Furthermore, ALL four men (two Republicans and two Democrats) have been members of the Trilateral Commission, the even more selective organization established by Illuminist David Rockefeller in 1973, which likewise advances the new world order (NWO) agenda.]

On this day, prescribed by law and marked by ceremony, we celebrate the durable wisdom of our Constitution, and recall the deep commitments that unite our country. I am grateful for the honor of this hour, mindful of the consequential times in which we live, and determined to fulfill the oath that I have sworn and you have witnessed.

At this second gathering, our duties are defined not by the words I use, but by the history we have seen together. For a half a century, America defended our own freedom by standing watch on distant borders. After the shipwreck of communism came years of relative quiet, years of repose, years of sabbatical and then there came a day of fire.

We have seen our vulnerability and we have seen its deepest source. For as long as whole regions of the world simmer in resentment and tyranny – prone to ideologies that feed hatred and excuse murder – violence will gather, and multiply in destructive power, and cross the most defended borders, and raise a mortal threat. There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment, and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom.

We are led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion: The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.

[CCL note: This is not what the Bibles teaches, nor what America’s Founders declared. The Bible says that liberty comes from God (e.g., 2 Cor. 3:17), as do peace and security (Lev. 26:5,6), which are the result of national, corporate obedience to the commandments of God; not armed military expeditions around the globe such as the undeclared, and therefore unconstitutional (and therefore illegal), and unnecessary War in Iraq, which has now killed more than 1,370 American soldiers and marines (http://icasualties.org/oif/). Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Presbyterian minister Mr. John Witherspoon said, “A Republic (America is supposed to be a constitutional republic) must either preserve its virtue or lose its liberty…”). Another Founder said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” The founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn, said, “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” A nation that commits child-murder like America does, 3,000+ times per day, will be turned over, by God, to their enemies, to those who hate them, and will oppress them (Psalm 106:37-42), and yet President George W. Bush (who many Christians foolishly and erroneously believe to be “pro-life” – see http://www.bushrevealed.com/), did not make one single direct reference to the plight of the unborn and the American Holocaust in his entire Second Inaugural Address !! While President/Commander-in-Chief Bush unconstitutionally (and therefore, in violation of his sworn oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”) sent U.S. Armed Forces into combat without a Declaration of War by the U.S. Congress (as required by Art. I., Sec. 8.), to allegedly remove the dictator Saddam Hussein (now that the WMD and 9-11 connection claims have been exposed as frauds) for Saddam’s brutal murder of perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands of Iraq citizens over the decades of his regime, President George W. Bush has presided over a nation in which over four million Americans have been brutally murdered by surgical abortion alone during only the four years of the Bush regime ! And that tragedy and abomination has continued in America when the U.S. Congress and the President could, if there was the vision and will, end abortion in one month’s time by passing legislation invoking the Art. III., Sec. 2 power of Congress to limit the jurisdiction of the U.S. supreme Court, and pass the federal Right to Life Act (such as HR 579 in the 108th Congress) by a simple majority in the Republican-majority U.S. House of Representatives and the Republican-majority U.S. Senate, and then signed by the Republican President. Since 1973, there has never been a time when the U.S. Congress and U.S. President did not have the authority and power, constitutionally, to end abortion in this way, in one month’s time. 32 years of innocent bloodshed has been completely unnecessary ! We do NOT have to wait until nine justices in black robes on the U.S. supreme Court figure out what even four and five-year-old children know instinctively and common-sensically when they see a picture of an 8-week unborn child: “It’s a baby !” The party in power (the Republican Party) is responsible for the continuation of the Abortion Holocaust in America – it’s that simple.]

America’s vital interests and our deepest beliefs are now one. From the day of our founding, we have proclaimed that every man and woman on this earth has rights, and dignity, and matchless value, because they bear the image of the maker of heaven and earth. Across the generations, we have proclaimed the imperative of self-government, because no one is fit to be a master, and no one deserves to be a slave. Advancing these ideals is the mission that created our nation. It is the honorable achievement of our fathers. Now it is the urgent requirement of our nation’s security, and the calling of our time.

So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.

[CCL note: where is this in the United States Constitution that George W. Bush just took an oath to uphold ? This statement by the U.S. President, and others, in this imperialistic Inaugural Address, while couched in the glowing terms of freedom and liberty, are in reality pretexts and rhetorical cover for empire-building by design)]

This is not primarily the task of arms, though we will defend ourselves and our friends by force of arms when necessary. Freedom, by its nature, must be chosen, and defended by citizens, and sustained by the rule of law and the protection of minorities. And when the soul of a nation finally speaks, the institutions that arise may reflect customs and traditions very different from our own. America will not impose our own style of government on the unwilling. Our goal instead is to help others find their own voice, attain their own freedom, and make their own way.

The great objective of ending tyranny is the concentrated work of generations. The difficulty of the task is no excuse for avoiding it. America’s influence is not unlimited, but fortunately or the oppressed, America’s influence is considerable, and we will use it confidently in freedom’s cause.

My most solemn duty is to protect this nation and its people from further attacks and emerging threats. Some have unwisely chosen to test America’s resolve, and have found it firm.

We will persistently clarify the choice before every ruler and every nation: The moral choice between oppression, which is always wrong, and freedom, which is eternally right. America will not pretend that jailed dissidents prefer their chains, or that women welcome humiliation and servitude, or that any human being aspires to live at the mercy of bullies.

We will encourage reform in other governments by making clear that success in our relations will require the decent treatment of their own people. America’s belief in human dignity will guide our policies, yet rights must be more than the grudging concessions of dictators; they are secured by free dissent and the participation of the governed. In the long run, there is no justice without freedom, and there can be no human rights without human liberty.

Some, I know, have questioned the global appeal of liberty though this time in history, four decades defined by the swiftest advance of freedom ever seen, is an odd time for doubt. Americans, of all people, should never be surprised by the power of our ideals. Eventually, the call of freedom comes to every mind and every soul. We do not accept the existence of permanent tyranny because we do not accept the possibility of permanent slavery. Liberty will come to those who love it.

Today, America speaks anew to the peoples of the world:

All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

[CCL note: same point as above, where is this in the United States Constitution that George W. Bush just took an oath to uphold ?]

Democratic reformers facing repression, prison, or exile can know: America sees you for who you are: The future leaders of your free country.

The rulers of outlaw regimes can know that we still believe as Abraham Lincoln did: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.”

The leaders of governments with long habits of control need to know: To serve your people you must learn to trust them. Start on this journey of progress and justice, and America will walk at your side.

And all the allies of the United States can know: we honor your friendship, we rely on your counsel, and we depend on your help. Division among free nations is a primary goal of freedoms enemies. The concerted effort of free nations to promote democracy is a prelude to our enemies defeat.

Today, I also speak anew to my fellow citizens:

From all of you, I have asked patience in the hard task of securing America, which you have granted in good measure. Our country has accepted obligations that are difficult to fulfill, and would be dishonorable to abandon. Yet because we have acted in the great liberating tradition of this nation, tens of millions have achieved their freedom. And as hope kindles hope, millions more will find it. By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well as a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world.

A few Americans have accepted the hardest duties in this cause in the quiet work of intelligence and diplomacy the idealistic work of helping raise up free governments the dangerous and necessary work of fighting our enemies. Some have shown their devotion to our country in deaths that honored their whole lives and we will always honor their names and their sacrifice.

All Americans have witnessed this idealism, and some for the first time. I ask our youngest citizens to believe the evidence of your eyes. You have seen duty and allegiance in the determined faces of our soldiers. You have seen that life is fragile, and evil is real, and courage triumphs. Make the choice to serve in a cause larger than your wants, larger than yourself and in your days you will add not just to the wealth of our country, but to its character.

America has need of idealism and courage, because we have essential work at home the unfinished work of American freedom. In a world moving toward liberty, we are determined to show the meaning and promise of liberty.

In America’s ideal of freedom, citizens find the dignity and security of economic independence, instead of laboring on the edge of subsistence. This is the broader definition of liberty that motivated the Homestead Act, the Social Security Act, and the G.I. Bill of Rights. And now we will extend this vision by reforming great institutions to serve the needs of our time. To give every American a stake in the promise and future of our country, we will bring the highest standards to our schools, and build an ownership society. We will widen the ownership of homes and businesses, retirement savings and health insurance preparing our people for the challenges of life in a free society. By making every citizen an agent of his or her own destiny, we will give our fellow Americans greater freedom from want and fear, and make our society more prosperous and just and equal.

In Americas ideal of freedom, the public interest depends on private character, on integrity, and tolerance toward others, and the rule of conscience in our own lives. Self-government relies, in the end, on the governing of the self. That edifice of character is built in families, supported by communities with standards, and sustained in our national life by the truths of Sinai, the Sermon on the Mount, the words of the Koran, and the varied faiths of our people. Americans move forward in every generation by reaffirming all that is good and true that came before ideals of justice and conduct that are the same yesterday, today, and forever.

[CCL note: considering the Christian heritage of America, which has been affirmed by both Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court in earlier generations, this attribution to “the words of the Koran” as something which sustains in our national life the edifice of character, is an abomination, and yet one more example of George W. Bush’s faithfulness to the Illuminati vision of the New World Order (one-world government, one-world money, and one-world religion)]

[CCL note: for documentation from the colonial charters and early state constitutions of the many declarations of Christian faith therein, as well as in later Congressional actions, and in an 1892 U.S. Supreme Court decision, see “No King but King Jesus !” http://www.daveblackonline.com/no_king_but_king_jesus.htm]

In America’s ideal of freedom, the exercise of rights is ennobled by service, and mercy, and a heart for the weak. Liberty for all does not mean independence from one another. Our nation relies on men and women who look after a neighbor and surround the lost with love. Americans, at our best, value the life we see in one another, and must always remember that even the unwanted have worth. And our country must abandon all the habits of racism, because we cannot carry the message of freedom and the baggage of bigotry at the same time.

From the perspective of a single day, including this day of dedication, the issues and questions before our country are many. From the viewpoint of centuries, the questions that come to us are narrowed and few. Did our generation advance the cause of freedom? And did our character bring credit to that cause?

These questions that judge us also unite us, because Americans of every party and background, Americans by choice and by birth, are bound to one another in the cause of freedom. We have known divisions, which must be healed to move forward in great purposes and I will strive in good faith to heal them. Yet those divisions do not define America. We felt the unity and fellowship of our nation when freedom came under attack, and our response came like a single hand over a single heart. And we can feel that same unity and pride whenever America acts for good, and the victims of disaster are given hope, and the unjust encounter justice, and the captives are set free.

We go forward with complete confidence in the eventual triumph of freedom. Not because history runs on the wheels of inevitability; it is human choices that move events. Not because we consider ourselves a chosen nation; God moves and chooses as He wills. We have confidence because freedom is the permanent hope of mankind, the hunger in dark places, the longing of the soul. When our Founders declared a new order of the ages; when soldiers died in wave upon wave for a union based on liberty; when citizens marched in peaceful outrage under the banner “Freedom Now” they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled. History has an ebb and flow of justice, but history also has a visible direction, set by liberty and the author of Liberty.

[CCL note: The term “a new order of the ages” is the precise translation of a motto on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States (www.greatseal.com ) which can be seen on the back of the One Dollar bill, written in Latin with the words, “Novus Ordo Seclorum”. In the opinion of many, this is conceptually the same term as “New World Order”, the vision of the Illuminati Establishment, to which Yale Skull and Bones occultic secret society member President George W. Bush has now re-affirmed his loyalty, on a global stage (as his father did in his 1991 State of the Union address to Congress), at his Second Inauguration, of one-world government, one-world money, and one-world religion.]

When the Declaration of Independence was first read in public and the Liberty Bell was sounded in celebration, a witness said, “It rang as if it meant something.” In our time it means something still. America, in this young century, proclaims liberty throughout all the world, and to all the inhabitants thereof. Renewed in our strength tested, but not weary we are ready for the greatest achievements in the history of freedom. May God bless you, and may He watch over the United States of America.

Pro-abort Condoleezza Rice refuses to admit Bush misled America on Iraq War

The four most important personnel choices of the President of the United States are:

1. his choice for Vice President as running mate [Dick Cheney]
2. his choice for Secretary of State [Condoleezza Rice]
3. his choice for Secretary of Defense [Donald Rumsfeld]
4. his choice for United States Attorney General [Alberto Gonzales]

As you consider Bush’s top four most important personnel picks,
remember Gary Bauer’s axiom: “PERSONNEL IS POLICY”

Dick Cheney thinks sodomites living together is OK (as does George W. Bush)

  • Dick and Lynne Cheney have a lesbian daughter
  • Cheney is also a CFR-member, a former CFR-board member, and a former member of the Trilateral Commission
  • dedicated to establishing one-world government
  • Condoleezza Rice is a pro-abort
  • Rice is also a CFR-member
  • Donald Rumsfeld is a former CFR-member

“PERSONNEL IS POLICY”

GEORGE W. BUSH IS NOT PRO-LIFE.

Bush is pro-abortion, because his policy is pro-abortion, as evidenced by his picks for administration personnel who are pro-abortion.

The 78% of evangelical Christians who voted for Bush out of the total of 23%of all voters who were evangelicals, need to repent (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Democrats challenge Rice on Iraq

From staff and wire reports

WASHINGTON ­

Democrats hammered Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday, pressing her to acknowledge misleading the American people on reasons for going to war with Iraq. But her approval by the Senate appeared secure. Condoleezza Rice responds Wednesday to Democratic claims she had misled Americans on the rationale for the Iraq war.

Rice insisted that Saddam Hussein was a dictator who refused to account for weapons of mass destruction. And it was impossible to change the nature of a terror threat in the Middle East with him leading Iraq, she testified. (Audio: Rice promises to be candid)

But Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., would not be shaken off, even after Rice acknowledged to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that “there were some bad decisions” taken by the Bush administration on Iraq.

She accused Rice of “an unwillingness to give Americans the full story because selling the war was so important to Dr. Rice. That was her job.”

And now, Boxer said, the toll of American dead and wounded is the “direct result” of Bush administration “rigidness” and misstatements.

Sen. Joseph Biden, ranking Democrat on committee, challenged Rice to acknowledge administration mistakes on Iraq and said he would vote for her confirmation, but only with “some frustration and reservation.”

The Delaware senator, zeroing in on U.S. policy in Iraq as he had during Tuesday’s initial hearing, accused the administration of giving shifting reasons to justify the war to oust Saddam.

Rice had steadfastly refused Tuesday to say when U.S. forces might be withdrawn from Iraq. And on Wednesday, Biden cited various rationales for the war, saying “you danced around it, stuck to the party line.”

He told Rice that acknowledging mistakes ­ such as the claim that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and was poised to use them ­ should not be considered “a sign of weakness.”

Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., meanwhile, urged Rice to consider reconciliation with Iran, which he said was about as repressive as China was when the Nixon administration approached Beijing for better relations.

But Rice said, “It is really hard to find common ground with a government that thinks Israel should be extinguished,” supports terror groups and is undercutting U.S. peace efforts in the Middle East.

More than 1,365 members of the U.S. military have died since U.S. troops led an invasion of Iraq in March 2003.

But Rice has declined to estimate when even some of the 150,000 U.S. troops may return home.

“I am really reluctant to try to put a timetable on that, because I think the goal is to get the mission accomplished,” she had said Tuesday, “and that means that the Iraqis have to be capable of some things before we lessen our own responsibility,” she said.

The 18 members of the committee were eager to quiz Colin Powell’s designated successor, although Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., the panel’s chairman, planned a vote following the hearing.

Committee approval would send the nomination to the Senate where confirmation appears certain ­ despite unease, especially among Democrats, about reasons Bush, Powell, Rice and others in the administration gave for going to war in March 2003 and how they are dealing with a deadly postwar insurgency.

At the State Department, Powell planned a farewell speech at midday, while employees were told to gather Friday in the lobby to welcome Rice on what would be her first day in charge of U.S. foreign policy.

Tuesday, Senate Democrats grilled Rice over U.S. strategy in Iraq and treatment of prisoners there and at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

In a heated exchange that electrified the hearing room, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., an opponent of the Iraq war, held up a placard of what she called contradictory statements by Rice on weapons of mass destruction as the primary reason for invading Iraq. (Related story: Both parties press Rice for answers)

“Your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth,” Boxer said.

“Senator, I have to say that I have never, ever lost respect for the truth in the service of anything,” Rice replied. “I really hope that you will refrain from impugning my integrity.” (Related video: Defending Iraq)

Despite the tough questioning, Rice is likely to be confirmed easily. Republicans control the Senate, and no significant opposition to her has emerged. Her confirmation hearing continues Wednesday. (Related story: What makes a good secretary of State?)

In four years as President Bush’s national security adviser, Rice testified only one other time on Capitol Hill ­ last April before a commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Tuesday, she defended the decision to go to war in Iraq. She said it was “the total picture” of Saddam Hussein’s regime, not just the possibility that the Iraqi dictator had weapons of mass destruction, that meant it was “high time to get rid of him.” The search for those weapons ended last week with none found.

Rice acknowledged, however, that “We do have some big tactical challenges” ahead in Iraq. (Audio: Rice addresses panel)

Rice made clear that the U.S. exit from Iraq depended on Iraqis being capable of providing for their own security. Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, the Foreign Relations Committee’s senior Democrat, said U.S. commanders told him that only 4,000 Iraqi soldiers have been adequately trained.

Rice put the figure at “over 120,000″ but conceded that “there has been a leadership gap” within the Iraqi forces. On other issues, Rice:

  • Promised to spend “an enormous amount of time” on promoting Israeli-Palestinian peace.
  • Sternly warned Syria it could face sanctions and “bad, long-term relations” with Washington unless it curbs support for terrorism and the Iraqi insurgency.
  • Ducked a question about whether the United States wants regime change in Iran but called its policies “antithetical” to U.S. interests.

Parents, if you don’t want your sons (and, disgracefully, daughters also) to have to die for some undeclared (and therefore unconstitutional and illegal), unnecessary, and unjustified, New World Order war in Iraq, or may the Lord forbid, in Iran or elsewhere, do not encourage them to join the United States Armed Forces, and do not cheer them on into belieiving it is somehow their patriotic duty to defend America against terrorism by fighting in these bogus wars. Even Bush’s Secretary of State Colin Powell has said publicly that there was NO CONNECTION BETWEEN 9-11 AND SADDAM HUSSEIN.

SECRETARY POWELL: “I have no indication that there was a direct connection between the terrorists who perpetrated these crimes against us on the 11th of September, 2001, and the Iraqi regime.”

When is America going to figure out that means we DID NOT have to go to war with Iraq ?

And that now over 1,300 American soldiers are dead UNNECESSARILY ?

Should Christian Leaders Be Involved?

Many Christians have never heard of the Council on National Policy (CNP). This organization holds great sway over the ministries of Christian leaders whose followers may number in the millions. Some have affiliations to the Moonies, some belong to the Council on Foreign Relations, some have connections to the Bilderbergers, some members are Masons, some are powerful and some are relatively insignificant. Though the CNP Christian leaders may desire a nation lead by God, their methodology is too diverse for workable cohesion.

The Council on National Policy Should Christian Leaders Be Involved?
By Al Cronkrite

The Covenant News ~ January 13, 2005
Yes! To this thought I hold with firm persistence;
The last result of wisdom stamps it true:
He only earns his freedom and existence,
Who daily conquers them anew.
Thus here, by dangers girt, shall glide away
Of childhood, manhood, age, the vigorous day:
And such a throng I fain would see,–
Stand on free soil among a people free!
Then dared I hail the Moment fleeing:
“Ah, still delay­thou art so fair!”
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, from Faust
Many Christians have never heard of the Council on National Policy (CNP). This organization holds great sway over the ministries of Christian leaders whose followers may number in the millions. Founded in 1981 by author and Evangelical leader Tim LaHaye, the membership includes such Christian icons as James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlafly, D. James Kennedy, H-Bomb
creator Dr. Edward Teller (died 2003), former Attorney General Ed Meese, Jack Kemp, Amway founder Richard DeVoss, several members of the oil-rich Texas Hunt clan who were involved in the founding, several members of the Coors family of beer fame, Delaware politician Pierre du Pont, and Alan Gottlieb who is connected to Rev. Sun Myong Moon’s Unification Church. The membership is extensive numbering over two hundred with scores of famous names.
It is a clandestine organization, the thrice-yearly meetings are held in secret. Members fawn over it:
  • I was a charter member of the Council for National Policy, and it is a great organization. It has all the best people in it. ­ Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum
  • If you want to be in the know about the real scoop, that you don’t read about in the newspapers, this is the organization to be part of. ­ Pat Robertson, Christian Coalition
  • There are very few organizations left that say ‘yes, we believe.’ And, we’re out to implement that policy in every way we can. We need those people out there who are considering linking hands and arms with us in this battle. I do hope they’ll join us. ­ Jim Dobson, Focus on the Family

Some have affiliations to the Moonies, some belong to the Council on Foreign Relations, some have connections to the Bilderbergers, some members are Masons, some are powerful and some are relatively insignificant. There are some that have an agenda and others who need money, some are Calvinists, others are theologically void Evangelicals. It is a potpourri of individuals who are concerned about America and about the politics that guide it. Since the majority of its members occupy high positions, the CNP is a goldmine for conspiracy theories.

Member and former participant, Gary North, in a piece defending his membership writes insightfully,

“As far as I could figure out, the CNP was basically a way to attract rich conservative businessmen who wanted to imagine that they were participating on the inside track of high-level politics. CNP provided that illusion. At CNP meetings, they could meet the leaders of the conservative movement, who had one thing in common: they all ran organizations that were short of money. There may not have been a meeting of the minds at CNP meetings, but there were meetings of potential donors and full-time money-absorbers. I don’t think much money passed hands at the meetings, but there was a CNP members-only address book, with direct phone numbers. That, in my view, was the key to understanding the CNP, 1981-91. After that, I don’t know. Most of those of us who were hard-core Right-wingers, pre-Reagan, stopped attending.”

Secularists often accuse the CNP of promoting a Dominionist theology and are concerned that they might be forced into an obedience they disdain or an allegiance to a God in Whom they do not believe. In an Article entitled Conquering by Stealth and Deception Katherine Yurica, whose quote from Goethe I have used at the beginning of this article, writes,

The Council on Foreign Relations is mimicked by the secretive dominionist Council for National Policy. The so called “liberal” press is countered with Fox News and Sun Myung Moon’s Washington Times, and dominionist talk show hosts spew their right wing political views and venom from coast to coast. Public schools are countered with private home and chartered schools. And in the last few months a move has been made within the church to break up and divide denominations along the lines of conservative beliefs in certain social issues so that two sets of churches will be created: one that practices right wing politics and one that is liberal!

The charge that the CNP is “Dominionist” is difficult to sustain. Intrinsic in Dominionism is Godly control of His creation. Godly control can only be obtained through voluntary obedience to The Law. Though the CNP Christian leaders may desire a nation lead by God, their methodology is too diverse for workable cohesion. The bulk of the membership is Evangelical, theologically weak and totally unprepared to work toward a Dominionist goal. Though to the secular outsider any Christian organization that seeks power is assumed to be Dominionist, in practice, such is not the case.

The Katherine Yurica quote does provide a working description of the Hegelian Dialectic. Membership in diverse organizations like the CNP also provides an opportunity “To practice the experience of speculating, conjecturing, theorizing, etc.”. This is Dean Gotcher’s definition of Praxis. Praxis creates opportunities for conflicts between the Thesis and the Anti-Thesis resulting in Synthesis. Synthesis gives the false impression that significant progress is being made. This is the abominable process of compromise that ends in progressively larger evil and by which America consistently manages to vote for its own demise.

Governmental deadlock over issues that involve obeying or disobeying the Constitution is viewed as detrimental to progress and invariably the righteous position is compromised. This is the dialectical pragmatism that leads to loss of freedom.

By definition pragmatism is result oriented: “Concerned with actual practice, everyday affairs, etc., not with theory or speculation; practical” it seeks to concern itself with pre-determined results. It is an instrument of insightful secular men. Many Christian leaders, whose bloated ministries require a constant influx of thankless deductible dollars, drain the sustenance from the Body of Christ. Christian tithes should not be wasted on the ministerial idols of men. The utilitarian objectives of most Christian ministries are evil at their core. Their obsession with their own ecclesiastics overcomes any ability to follow the Will of God.

At an August 2004 “pep rally” in support of President Bush II, just prior to the Republican Convention, the CNP met at the posh Plaza Hotel in New York City. According to the New York Times, President Bush had addressed the group in the fall of 1999 to solicit their support. Both Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney have also attended meetings.

For the do-gooders of the world the accumulation of power is always accompanied by the temptation to use it to force “good” policies on the less powerful. In spite of the fact that God’s power is made perfect in weakness, when organizations are formed with the purpose of amassing power, the temptation to enforce “good” usually becomes irresistible. What better example than the policies of President Bush II and the War in Iraq; the leader of a powerful nation attempting by force to abolish both the government and the religion of a weak but relatively wealthy smaller nation.

There is only one ministry that should deserve the tithes of God’s people and that is the establishment of His Kingdom. Not by might nor by power but by the assiduous pursuit of His Spirit and the Grace produced desire to obey His written Laws. It is never the mission of God’s people to be complicit in the destruction of His creation. Destruction is a punishment imposed on those who fail to obey His commandments. For those who seek to obey and live by the Grace God had provided, rebuke and correction are in order. It is God’s dominion to determine times and punishments. We may see the signs but those signs should only add to our industriousness.

The Achilles heel of the elitist CNP is their failure to promote an agenda capable of changing the Nation. Electing Christians whose guidance is gleaned from the Holy Spirit without reference to the immutable Laws given to Moses results in a flaccid chaos that produces nothing of value. The compromises produced in this organization and in the pragmatic policies of many Christian leaders are glaringly reflected in the malevolent programs of the Bush II government.

It is important in these times that we remember the stringent dictates God gave to Moses concerning the fate of the inhabitants of the Promised Land. With all the fidelity to Biblical doctrine claimed by our leaders there is seldom any reference to God’s command for the extermination of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. “That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God” Deuteronomy 20:18. From the beginning, God’s love for his chosen people was such that their contamination was to be prevented at all costs. Righteousness always suffers when Christian leaders engage in policy dialogue with powerful pagans.

The Evil One is enthralled with things hidden while Our Savior seeks to bring all into the light. All organizations that meet in secret do so with ulterior motives. Some of the reasons are quite innocent but others are silently malignant. Ostensibly, the CNP meets to promote more Christian influence in American government and society. It was said to have been founded to counter the Council on Foreign Relations. One organization bent on building a modern Tower of Babel and the other bent on an obscure Christian agenda. Both peopled by elites and both subject to suspicion.

It appears these powerful leaders are innocent as lambs and dumb as goats for apparently they all supported the election of President Bush. Much of that influence may have come from the CNP.

Formed in 1921, the CFR is based in NY City, and it is incredible to see the influence it wields, administration after adminstration, regardless of whether the President is a Republican or Democrat, because of the many key positions CFR members hold (e.g., Cheney, Powell, and Rice (R); as well as Clinton, Shalala, andCarter (D) are all CFR members).

SUBJ: LEFEMINE FOR LIFE for Congress END-OF-CAMPAIGN REPORT

(SteveLforUS2@sc-online.net )

Dear Friends,

Thank you to each one who has prayed, or contributed with your time, labors, talents, or finances for this run for US House in the Second Congressional District (SC) conducted on November 2nd. Most of all, I thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) for the blessing and privilege of having the opportunity to represent Him in the ‘gates’. Most people think of the worldly business of “politics” as something secular, as
the so-called “art of compromise.” But this is the heathen, worldly, and pagan view. The Bible-based Christian
worldview, on the other hand, is that “Christian statesmanship is the God-ordained ministry (Romans 13:1-4) and holy undertaking, of establishing justice in the gate of civil government.” If more Christians had a biblical worldview of God’s intended purpose for civil government, the third of God’s corporate“governments” (in addition to the family and church) which He established, ordained, and empowers, then perhaps there would have been fewer Christian whites among the 60 million plus foolish Americans who voted for the Illuminati Establishment’s Skull and Bones occultic secret society Republican puppet, George W. Bush; and perhaps also there would have been fewer Christian blacks among the 57 million plus foolish Americans who voted for the Illuminati Establishment’s Skull and Bones occultic secret society Democratic puppet, John F. Kerry; and perhaps there would have been more faithful Christians, black and white, in addition to the 140,000 plus more wise and discerning Americans, who voted for Christian attorney, constitutionalist, and homeschooling father, Michael Peroutka, the Constitution Party presidential candidate!

In the US House District # 2 (SC) race, I received 4,447 votes (1.6 % of the total) this time. In comparison to the 404 votes (0.7 % of the total) that I received in the same race (US House District # 2) in the 2001 Special Election, I am looking at these 2004 results with a positive, optimistic outlook – 4,447 votes is more than ten times 404 votes ! (smile)Hallelu-Yah !

Campaign Strategies: Hand-distributed flyers, “Yard” Signs, Free TV air time, and Radio Commercials

With a low-budget campaign war chest ($1220.00), the options available to get a candidate’s name and message out are more limited than those of the better-funded Establishment party candidates.
Nevertheless, our Lord is a Creative God, and He has ways above our ways (Is. 55:8,9) to accomplish His purposes. Like young David fighting Goliath, using the weapons he was familiar and practiced with (1 Sam. 17:34-40), brother Johnny Gardner, director of Voice of the Unborn, who stands day after day on the streets of Columbia as a witness for Christ against the unspeakable crime of abortion, distributed several thousand endorsement letters on the streets. One of his letters endorsing Steve’s candidacy for U.S. Congress is enclosed. I sincerely appreciate Johnny’s help, done as unto the Lord, to advance the cause of stopping South Carolina’s abortion holocaust (over 300,000 dead and counting in a so-called ‘Bible-belt’ state where the Republicans have controlled the SC House of Representatives since 1995, and have never even passed the Right to Life Act of SC out of the House Judiciary Committee !).
Although I have run graphic anti-abortion TV commercials in past congressional campaigns (in both 2001 and 2002), I had not used small (1 ½ x 2 ft.) yard signs before this year’s campaign. I purchased some here in Columbia and was blessed with more from Vern Bearden, and was able to get a lot of signs out on the highways and by-ways in Lexington and Richland Counties especially, as well as a good number in Beaufort and Orangeburg. In fact, one or more signs were up in 7 out of the 10 counties that make up the Second District. In addition to Vern’s provision, I would like to thank brother Johnny (again!), Robert Lampley, Randy McCoy and Ken Collins for helping plant these signs in counties from the coast to the midlands. I had a number of people tell me about seeing the signs, and although quite a few were taken, it was a great way to build name and party recognition (you can see the sign’s design at http://lefemineforlife.blogspot.com/2004/10/campaign-yard-sign-steve-lefemine-for.html).
One of the opportunities presented to candidates who run for office is free TV time. I was allowed to appear at no cost on the NBC affiliate (the largest station) in Columbia, on a cable program in Orangeburg, as well as the NBC affiliate in Savannah, GA, which broadcasts into Beaufort County in SC. The Savannah station allowed me to record a three-minute statement, in which I referred to “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”, the goal of the Constitution Party (To restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical premises, and to limit the Federal Government to its enumerated, specified powers.), the Eight-Points of my campaign (http://lefemineforlife.blogspot.com/2004/10/lefemine-for-life-for-congress.html), beginning with Point # 1, to acknowledge God’s Law as the moral foundation of all our laws, and concluded by asking for the viewers’ votes, and to “please join me in echoing the battle cry of our patriot forefathers who proclaimed, ‘No King but King Jesus!’ ”.
The largest single expense during the campaign was running 60-second radio commercials on a large newstalk station that carried three nationally known radio hosts. The cost was either $32 per spot, or $6 per spot, depending upon whether the spot was guaranteed to be aired, or whether it was on a “space available” basis. Total cost for 28 commercials: $688. The two radio ads run were “Sanctity of Life” (done with Johnny Gardner) and my opposition to the “War in Iraq.”
Only two Peroutka 2004 campaign TV ads with graphic pictures of aborted children were shown in the Columbia area, and even those were in the very late, after-midnight hours. Nevertheless, I commend Michael Peroutka, and others who helped (e.g., John Moore, Pat Johnston) to air dozens of these ads elsewhere (e.g., Ohio) for their courage and faithfulness.
Several early state constitutions established various requirements for overt declarations of general (not sectarian or denominational) Christian belief for those who would be state-level civil ministers, including state legislators and state governors. What is missing in our federal U.S. Constitution is an acknowledgment of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Even the 1892 U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States case, refers to “the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind.” Beginning in 1864, the National Reform Association (http://www.natreformassn.org/) has advocated a national confession of the Lord Jesus Christ be amended into the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution, to which I say a hearty “Amen !”. To read excerpts of early state constitutions with various declarations of belief in Christianity,
the Trinity, or the divine inspiration of the Old and New Testaments, go to the posting entitled: No King but King Jesus ! http://www.daveblackonline.com/no_king_but_king_jesus.htm
I come now to a difficult message: Because of compromise by some national and state-level leaders, including several founders of the Constitution Party, on the excellent 100% Pro-Life plank of the CP national platform; and the ecumenical nature of the Constitution Party, involving leadership by, and prayer with, those who follow false religions (e.g., Roman Catholicism [I was once Catholic], Mormonism), erroneously identifying
these religions as “Christian”; as well as the unbiblical practice of women usurping “authority over the man”
(1 Timothy 2:12), this is my last CP candidacy. I plan to separate from the CP after Dec. 31 (2 Cor. 6:14-18).
I have learned much since becoming involved with the CP (then USTP) in 1997, and I thank all those in the CP from whom I have learned so much, including and especially USTP/CP founder Howard Phillips, who have done a tremendous service to our country in “moving the ball forward” to restore America’s founding vision. Nevertheless, “the word of the LORD is right; and all His works are done in [His] [T]ruth.” Psalm 33:4

No King but King Jesus !
