Gerald Ford: Question & Facts you won’t see in the CFR-controlled media

Press Release

December 28, 2006

Question: Was Gerald R. Ford a born-again Christian ?

Facts: Gerald R. Ford was:
1) a Shriner and high-level Mason, and
2) a member of the Illuminati Establishment’s new world order (one-worlder) organization, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)


Jesus Christ said, “Ye must be born again.” John 3:7, KJB

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23, KJB

Only those who repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour will be saved from hell, and enter heaven.
(John 3:16-18, Romans 10:9,10)

“For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23, KJB

A man is saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ (Messiah) alone.
(Ephesians 2:8, 9)

Water baptism as an infant does not save a man. Entering a church building does not save a man. Taking communion does not save a man.

Question: Was Gerald R. Ford a born-again Christian ?

Gerald Ford attended St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, CA.

Jesus Christ said, “Ye must be born again.” (John 3:7, KJB), but the Episcopal Church USA baptizes babies, and believes in the unbiblical doctrine of baptismal regeneration.

Was Gerald R. Ford a born-again Christian ?


1) Gerald Ford was a Shriner and high-level Mason:

“The Shriners, or Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, are an Order appendant to Freemasonry. Until 2000, one had to complete either the Scottish Rite or York Rite degrees of Masonry to be eligible for Shrine membership, but now any Master Mason can join.”

In other words, until 2000, a person had to be at least a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason orYork Rite equivalent, to join the Shriners; but now, even a 3rd degree Master Mason can join.

Gerald Ford was a Scottish Rite Mason.

[underline emphasis added below; what really is the “religion” of Freemasonry ?]

“It is a men’s fraternity rather than a religion or religious group. Its only religious requirement is indirect: all Shriners must be Masons, and petitioners to Freemasonry must profess a belief in a Supreme Being. In order to further minimize any confusion with religion, the use of the word “Temple” to describe Shriners’ buildings has now been replaced by the phrase “Shrine Center.””

Freemasonry is ecumenical, the “Supreme Being” in which Masons and Shriners profess belief, need not be the One, True God of the Bible, but can be for example the god of Islam, Allah. This is how Skull and Bones masonic secret society member George W. Bush can claim that Christians and Muslims worship the same God/god – he worships the Masonic false, ecumenical “god.”
Bush on Religion and God (Oct. 26, 2004)
President Says He Believes Muslims and Christians Pray to Same God

However, Jesus Christ is God (e.g., Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1, Matt. 1:23, John 20:28, Colossians 2:9).
Allah is not God (John 5:23, 1 John 2:22, 23). The Koran denies that Jesus is God,and denies that the historical event of the Crucifixion ever even took place.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14:6)

Jesus Christ is right. George W. Bush, the Muslims, Masons, the Shriners, and the Skull and Bones Society, are all wrong. Who are you going to believe ?

2) Gerald Ford was a member of the Illuminati Establishment’s NWO one-world government organization, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR):

Ford’s CFR membership goes back at least 24 years to 1982:

See a concise overview article about the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) on the internet at:

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), along with the Trilateral Commission, Freemasons, Skull and Bones masonic secret society, and Bilderbergers are among the major globalist organizations whose leadership is working toward the New World Order of one-world global socialist tyranny, and the supersession of the United States Constitution by the UN Charter and other globalist instruments: e.g., NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA, NAU, GATT, WTO, etc., etc., etc.

Just look across the Atlantic at how the Common Market of 1957 has become the European Union of today (with ongoing efforts to pass a European Constitution), and you will get an idea what these one-world, New World Order, global socialists want to do to North America (North American Union), then to the Western Hemisphere, and then to the whole globe. However, because Christ is King (1 Tim. 6:15), their anti-Christ modern day “Tower of Babel” will fail, just as the one in Genesis 11.


Nixon and ‘Roe v. Wade’ in ’73

Nixon was President when the abominable, unconstitutional Roe v. Wade decision was announced, leading to the American Holocaust and genocidal murder in the womb of over 47 MILLION children by surgical abortion alone (

Gerald R. Ford was President of the United States for less than 2 1/2 years, when he became president on August 9, 1974 after the resignation of Richard Nixon, until Jimmy Carter (CFR/TC) won the Nov. 1976 Election, and was inaugurated in January 1977.

Richard Nixon had won the Nov. 1968 Election, and became president in January 1969. Nixon was re-elected in the Nov. 1972 Election, and was re-inaugurated on January 20, 1973.

January 22, 1973:
Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton – “The Court ruled that the fetus was not a “person” with constitutional rights and that a right to privacy inherent in the 14th Amendment’s due process guarantee of personal liberty protected a woman’s decision to have an abortion.”
(quote – The World Almanac and Book of Facts, 2002, p. 539)

Note: The “Right to Life Act” was introduced by Rep. Duncan Hunter every year beginning in 1997 right through 2006, but was never given even a subcommittee public hearing by the Republican-majority which controlled the US House for 12 years (1995-2006). If passed, the RTL Act would recognize the legal “personhood” of the unborn child, and thus unravel Roe, ending U.S. Gov’t. protection of abortion.

Right to Life Act (Introduced in US House) HR 552


Note: Likewise, the Right to Life Act of SC, was first introduced in the SC House in 1998 by the late Rep. Terry Haskins, and then continuously through 2006 by Rep. Ralph Davenport. If passed into law, the RTL Act of SC would vest legal “personhood” at fertilization, thereby unravelling the legal argument of Roe. Although the RTL Act of SC did finally pass the SC House in 2005 (seven years after it was introduced in a Republican-majority SC House – 1995 to present), albeit with an unconstitutional, fatal flaw rape exception amendment, the bill nevertheless died in a SC Senate Judiciary Subcommittee chaired by Sen. Jim Ritchie at the end of the 2006 legislative session.

When the history of 1973 to 2006 America is (truthfully) written one day (it’s being written accurately in Heaven now !), may it include the incontrovertible fact that every President and every Congress has had the power since January 22, 1973 to END THE ABORTION HOLOCAUST IN AMERICA by a simple majority vote in Congress (through the Art. III., Sec. 2. power of Congress to restrict the appellate jurisdiction of the US supreme Court); but instead, most Christians and pro-lifers foolishly and blindly followed the false leadership of Republican Party politicians and the National Right to Life leaders, and believed that looking to change the composition of the US supreme Court was the best strategy. Well seven out of nine Justices have been appointed by Republican Presidents, and still, 1 MILLION plus children continue to be aborted annually by surgical abortion alone in America.



US House limits jurisdiction of Federal Courts regarding the Pledge of Allegiance Employs Article III., Section 2. constitutional power of the US Congress to limit the appellate jurisdiction of the US supreme Court:

Today’s generation of “Christian” and “Pro-Life” Establishment leaders is acting like a generation lacking in spiritual “Vision” and Godly “Knowledge” – the American Holocaust and Genocide could have ended by the end of January 1973 before it really got started……………….

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Hosea 4:6a, KJB

“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Proverb 29:18a, KJB

As one Christian pro-life leader has said, Abortion will end when the Church of Jesus Christ decides it will end. Christians, it can end now !

The Republican-majority in the US House had 12 years to make it happen, and they didn’t even conduct a subcommittee-level public hearing.

However, a number of states introduced state-level abortion ban bills in 2005/2006.
The states of Georgia, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina had “no exceptions” abortion ban bills, in Missouri had a constitutional amendment proposed, and in Michigan an attempt to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot was made.

11 State bills in 2005/2006 banning abortions:
– ALA, GA, IND, KY, LA, MO, ND, OH, SC, SD, TENN (over 20% of States in U.S.)

Georgia – HB 93:

North Dakota – House Bill No. 1227:

Ohio – HB 228:

South Carolina – S.111:

Missouri – SJR43: Proposed Missouri State Constitutional Amendment – Senate Joint Resolution 43 to place proposed abortion ban Amendment on the ballot in November 2006:

Michigan – Proposed Michigan State Constitutional Amendment – Citizen Petition Drive currently underway to place proposed “personhood” Amendment on the ballot in November 2006:

The key is legal “personhood” for all pre-birth human beings at fertilization. No “exceptions.” As demonstrated in the Roe v. Wade decision itself, “exceptions” to “personhood” are unconstitutional. The “life of the mother” exception in the Texas state law challenged in Roe helped open the door to federally-protected abortion in every one of the 50 states.


Right to Life Act of SC – news conference and “Jesus Christ is Lord of the Gates” pro-life rally – Jan. 17, 2006

In the very text of the Roe v. Wade US supreme Court decision it states, “[Texas] argue[s] that the fetus is a “person” within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment… If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [pro-abortion] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.” In other words, there never would have been legalized abortion under Roe v. Wade. But tragically, Texas had an “exception” which undermined their entire “personhood” argument. Justice Harry Blackmun wrote: “[ Footnote 54 ] When Texas urges that a fetus is entitled to Fourteenth Amendment protection as a person, it faces a dilemma. Neither in Texas nor in any other State are all abortions prohibited. Despite broad proscription, an exception always exists… But if the fetus is a person who is not to be deprived of life without due process of law, and if the mother’s condition is the sole determinant, does not the Texas exception appear to be out of line with the Amendment’s command? …”

The Right to Life Act of SC, in statutorily vesting legal “personhood” at fertilization for ALL human beings, satisifies the Roe formula published 33 years ago. The issue of legal “personhood” for ALL human beings, without exception, is a key to unlocking the 33 year old Roe v. Wade abortion enigma.

Governor Sanford plans Inaugural Prayer Service in Pro-sodomite Episcopal Church’s Building

In spite of repeated requests for a change in venue, South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford is reportedly still moving ahead with plans to hold his Inaugural Prayer Service in the cathedral building of pro-sodomite Trinity Episcopal “Church” on January 10, 2007. This is Sanford’s second 4-year term of office.

Letter to SC Governor Mark Sanford, Re: Jan. 10, 2007 Inaugural Prayer Service – Dec. 20, 2006
Letter to SC Governor Mark Sanford, Re: Jan. 10, 2007 Inaugural Prayer Service – Dec. 15, 2006
(both letters are available on-line at , click on “News”)

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral’s lead cleric, Dr. Phil Linder, has openly and publicly expressed his apostate, pro-sodomite beliefs in an Op-ed printed in Columbia’s daily newspaper:
“… we believe in the full inclusion of gays, lesbians and women within the life of the Episcopal Church.” (The State, 7/6/06). According to the Executive Director of Governor Sanford’s Inaugural Committee, Dr. Linder is scheduled to give a “Welcome” message to the assembled attendees at the Inaugural Prayer Service on January 10 at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. It is shameful to so honor such a cleric whom Jesus Christ would call a wolf in “sheep’s clothing” (Matthew 7:15).

Op-ed article by Dr. Phil Linder, Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral,
“Debate over the soul of the Episcopal Church,” The State (Columbia, SC), July 6, 2006 (

Trinity Episcopal “Church” has an unrepentant, openly homosexual man (Doak Wolfe) on the “Trinity Staff” ( as their “Assistant Organist & Choirmaster.” While Doak Wolfe will reportedly not be personally involved with the presentation of the music or singing at the Governor’s Inaugural Prayer Service, it is apparent that Mr. Wolfe’s homosexual behavior is known and accepted by Dr. Phil Linder and the leadership at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. In an article in the pro-sodomite Columbia weekly newspaper, the Free Times, homosexual Doak Wolfe and his partner in sodomy, Gordon Smith (a professor at the University of SC), were reported to “wear wedding rings; they exchanged vows in a private ceremony…” Free Times, Oct. 11-17, 2006.

Article from the Free Times, “Real People, Real Pain – Proposed Amendment Major Setback to Gay Equality,” by Dan Cook, October 11-17, 2006 issue

All this with a backdrop that Mark Sanford is Governor of a state which codifies sodomy as a state felony under the SC Code of Laws (SECTION 16-15-120, ), condemning acts of sodomy as an “abominable crime,” and requiring those convicted to register with the Sex offender registry (SECTION 23-3-430). Furthermore, the people of South Carolina, voting in a referendum Nov. 8th, just approved an amendment to the SC State Constitution defending Biblical marriage (Genesis 2:18-25) by a vote of over 77% in favor of passage.

Sodomy is a Crime. It is a Crime: 1) Against the Laws of God (e.g., Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26,27; and 1 Corinthians 6:9,10), and 2) Against the Laws of Nature, and 3) Against the Laws of South Carolina.

Governor Sanford is the “Chief Magistrate of the State” of South Carolina. He has a duty to uphold the moral and statutory law of our state. George Washington said that “Religion and morality are indispensable supports” of “political prosperity.” By scheduling his Inaugural Prayer Service inside the building of a publicly, openly, professedly sodomite “church,” Governor Sanford is in effect subverting the true Religion (Biblical Christianity) and Morality of the State of South Carolina. Most importantly, it is a Reproach to the Name of Jesus Christ, Who is Governor of All Nations (Psalm 22:28). Office of the SC Governor: Ph. (803) 734-2100 / Fax (803) 734-0546 / 9413.

New Jersey to become 5th U.S. State to "legalize" sodomite "couplings"

Vermont, then Connecticut, and now New Jersey – now three northern U.S. States will have legal rights for sodomite “civil unions,” and a fourth northern state, Massachusetts allows sodomites to “marry,” while far left coast state California has “domestic partnerships” with full “marriage” rights.

Is it time now for other states in America to “separate” (the word found in the first sentence of the 1776 Declaration of Independence) from states which continue down the road of breaking God’s moral law ? Or can America co-exist part-sodomite, and part-biblical, marriage (Genesis 2:18-25) ?

How long will God allow a nation to continue to exist that sheds the blood of over 1 MILLION innocent people a year (2 Kings 24:1-4), and which increasingly legitimizes sodomy (Genesis 19:1-29) ???

[Note: The Declaration of Independence is part of the organic law of the United States of America, United States Code Annotated
(search “Declaration of Independence”)]

The Bible in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 presents the Christian model for Biblical Separation.

This was so aptly exemplified just days ago by the eight Episcopal Churches in Virginia,which separated from the pro-sodomite Episcopal “Church” USA. Praise the Lord.
[The Washington Times,]

We are already a nation that protects with the power of government force, the satanic so-called “right” of a human mother to murder her own child while inside her womb, or only partially delivered from the womb. Every one of the 50 states has at least one (MISS, ND, SD, WY), and as many as 48 (TX), 72 (FL), 79 (NY), or 125 (CA), child-murder centers (euphemistically called “clinics”),a total of 741 abortion death camps in America, down from over 2,000 at one time (

Since 1973, America has murdered an estimated 47 Million plus ( pre-birth humans by surgical abortion alone. We have probably murdered multiple times that number by so-called “contraceptive” birth control, which is actually dual action, both contraceptive and abortifacient (abortion-causing), such as Birth Control Pills, and Depo-Provera.

N.J. governor to sign bill sanctioning civil unions for gay couples

Posted 12/21/2006 9:07 AM ET
[emphasis and commentary added]

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) ­ New Jersey’s gay couples are gaining all the rights and responsibilities of marriage under state law as New Jersey moves to become the third in the nation to institute civil unions and the fifth to offer some version of marriage.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine planned to sign the civil unions bill on Thursday.

When the law takes effect Feb. 19, New Jersey will join Connecticut and Vermont as states that allow civil unions for gay couples. Massachusetts allows gay couples to marry, while California has domestic partnerships that bring full marriage rights.

Gay couples granted civil unions in New Jersey will have adoption, inheritance, hospital visitation and medical decision-making rights and the right not to testify against a partner in state court.

The Legislature passed the civil unions bill on Dec. 14 in response to an October state Supreme Court order that gay couples be granted the same rights as married couples. The court gave lawmakers six months to act but left it to them to decide whether to call the unions “marriage” or something else.

Gay couples welcome the law, but some argue that not calling the relationship “marriage” creates a different, inferior institution.

Also, while the state law provide them with the benefits of married couples, they won’t be entitled to the same benefits in the eyes of the federal government because of 1996 federal law that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman. Surviving partners won’t be able to collect deceased partners’ Social Security benefits, for example, said family lawyer Felice T. Londa, who representsmany same-sex couples.

Donna Harrison, of Asbury Park, has been with her partner, Kathy Ragauckas, for nine years. She isn’t exactly celebrating the bill signing, though she said she and Ragauckas will probably get a civil union certificate.

“Although I think they provide some benefit, it is a different treatment of human beings,” she said.

Chris Schwam and Steven Piacquiadio, of Collingswood, have been together for 20 years, have a3-year-old son and had a big wedding in 1993, though it wasn’t recognized legally. Schwam, 40, said they will get a civil union, but without a big fuss.

“I don’t think my mother would be happy to pay for that again,” he said.

The gay rights group Garden State Equality has promised to push lawmakers to change the terminology to “marriage.” Others are considering lawsuits to force full recognition of gay marriage.

The bill creates a commission that will regularly review the law and recommend possible changes.

Corzine, a Democrat, said that seems a reasonable approach, but he said calling the arrangement a civil union rather than gay marriage is preferable.

“For most, people marriage has a religious connotation, and for many there is a view that that term is not consistent with the teachings of their religious belief,” the governor said. “So there is not democratic support in the broader society for that label, even though there is strong support for equal protection under the law.”

[Note from Steve Lefemine: the “equal protection” due those who commit acts of sodomy should be the right to receive due process of law, to be charged, tried, and if found guilty by a judge/jury, to be sentenced, for the crime of sodomy (or the “abominable crime” of “buggery” as it is termed in the South Carolina Code of Laws, SECTION 16-15-120). The issue is not “equal rights” for sodomites. The issue is that acts of sodomy are criminal acts.]

Senate President Richard J. Codey, a Democrat who sponsored the bill, said time could bring change.

“The history of civil rights progress, whether it’s women’s rights, minorities’ rights or any other movement, is one that is typically achieved in incremental steps,” Codey said. “This is, by no means, the end, but it is a major step forward.”

Social conservative groups and lawmakers opposed the measure, reasoning it brings gay relationships too close to marriage, but it easily passed the legislature. Some have vowed to push to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, but Democrats who control the legislature said such proposals won’t be heard.

The three-day waiting period required by the law is the same as with marriage licenses. Licenses will be valid for 30 days, and ceremonies can be officiated by anyone who performs weddings, including clergy and mayors. As with marriages, civil unions will have to be witnessed by one additional adult.

Council on Foreign Relations infested Iraq Study Group reaches (no-doubt) Hegelian "consensus," will report December 6

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is one of the premier organizations for advancing the cause of one-world government, in other words, the CFR / Skull and Bones / Trilateral Commission / Bilderberg / United Nations / Freemason / Bohemian Grove / Illuminati Establishment’s “New World Order.”

Iraq Study Group reaches consensus, will report next week

Updated 11/29/2006 7:51 PM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) ­ A bipartisan commission has reached a consensus on new U.S. policies for Iraq and will announce its recommendations next week, the group’s co-chairman said Wednesday.

Former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., declined to disclose any specifics about the Iraq Study Group’s decisions. The report, much anticipated by the Bush administration and members of Congress, is coming out next Wednesday amid the spiraling violence in Iraq that has raised questions about the viability of the Iraqi government and U.S. policy for a deeply unpopular war

“This afternoon, we reached a consensus … and we will announce that on December 6,” Hamilton told a forum on national security at the Center for American Progress, a liberal group.

“We’re making recommendations,” said Hamilton, who led the group with former Secretary of State James A. Baker III.

Defense officials, meantime, said the Pentagon is developing blueprints to send four more battalions to Iraq early next year, including some to Baghdad.

The extra combat engineer battalions of Army reserves, would total about 3,500 troops and would come from around the United States, said officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deployments have not been announced.

President Bush is under growing pressure to craft an exit strategy to withdraw substantial numbers of U.S. troops while shifting more responsibility to the Iraqi government. Even so, top military commanders have said they would consider increasing U.S. troops, at least temporarily, if they deemed it necessary.

Bush said Tuesday he would not withdraw American forces “until the mission is complete.

“The study group is expected to recommend regional talks involving Syria and Iran. The Bush administration has been reluctant to engage those two countries, which it says have abetted the violence in Iraq.

It was unclear what the group would recommend regarding possible U.S. troop withdrawals, an issuethat proved divisive during meetings this week. The members ­ five Democrats and five Republicans ­ were split over the appropriate U.S. troop levels in Iraq, and whether and how to pull American forces out, according to one official close to the panel’s deliberations.

A second official has said the commission was unlikely to propose a timetable for withdrawing all U.S. troops, but that some members seem to favor setting a date for an initial withdrawal. That is an idea favored by many congressional Democrats.

Wake up Americans ! We are being played for fools – BOTH the Republican AND the Democrat Parties are controlled by the Illuminati / CFR / Masonic Establishment marching America over the cliff into the abyss of the New World Order !

Take a look across the Atlantic at the European Union; member nations have voted on a European Constitution – that’s what these global socialists want to do here in the Western Hemisphere (NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA, NAU) – establish first a North American Union (Canada, US, and Mexico), and eventually, a Western Hemispheric Union, superceding America’s Constitution, and stealing our sovereignty !

Check out over time how many of the Republican AND Democratic candidates for US President in 2008 are CFR members. For example, both potential candidates Republican CFR-member John McCain and Democratic CFR-member John F. Kerry (Kerry, like current President George W. Bush is also a member of the masonic Skull and Bones secret society). Election after election after election, the “fix” is in -CFR-controlled candidates put forward by the Illuminati Establishment, and trumpetedby the CFR-controlled dominant (dinosaur) media.
