“I am the Lord, I change not.”
“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” (Marachi 3:6 Isaiah 40:29 )
I Change Not
Dear Friends,In a world that is changing at what now seems to be a ferocious rate of speed it is good to remember that our Rock, Jesus, does and will not change. His promises are just as true today as they ever were. “Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” Matthew 7:24-25. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 Just over the past few weeks and months people we have known for years, even some members of our own families, are saying, “What is happening, what is going on in the world, things no longer seem “normal”, etc.” And they are not “normal”. We are hurtling, at what now seems breakneck speed, towards the end of this Age which will culminate with the soon coming return of Jesus Christ in the clouds of Heaven with glory and honor and great majesty. What a day of rejoicing that will be. With faith in God's Word and wielding the Keys of the Kingdom, and by God's grace He will see us through whatever may lay ahead. He has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us but will with every temptation make a way of escape. This weeks editorial is a little bit different, in that it is in two parts. Just click on the links. We pray you have a great week ahead, and when possible share God's love through Jesus with those who are looking for answers.

AMERICA IN PROPHECY, BABYLON AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER
March 4, 2013
Therefore when He (God) has called upon people in history to do things that changed the outcome of history He has already included that in His planned outcome. In the same way this Infinite Personal Living God of the Universe is calling upon countless numbers of people to respond to His divine call. In all probability this God Who Is There is calling upon you now to help participate in His plan and to choose with an act of your will to take certain actions. Among the infinite mathematical probabilities He has already taken into account the outcome of such actions and included it in His prophetic plan.
It is possible to step outside the matrix of reality which has now resembles a computer generated illusion and understand that if you have the faith of a little child you can access the Keys of the Kingdom, along with the supernatural authority that goes with it. This authority was given to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It was also given to the disciples of Jesus Christ who were instructed to pass it on to anyone who would believe. When the term power from on high is used in conveying the Upper Room Experience of the disciples, it is not used in a religious sense. It literally means incredible force and power that can be released into this world for numerous reasons.
One can study Bible prophecy along with the Luciferian plan, but if this study leaves you powerless, you have missed something in your analysis! The Infinite Personal Living God of the Universe has downloaded enormous power into your hands and you are expected to use it. This cannot be perceived on religious terms; it must be perceived on real terms. As such, when faced with opposition of any kind, you must learn how to access this supernatural power and use it. History is not fixed and you have been given the power to change it.
EXO-VATICANA (Pt 18)
Petrus Romanus, PROJECT LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior.
By Tom Horn & Cris Putnam
A few years ago one could have thought with some certainty that Cardinal "Peter the Roman" Bertone would be a shoo-in for Petrus Romanus. However, as we move into 2013, cracks have appeared in the foundation of his sand castle, and not everybody in the Curia--including former Pope Benedict XVI, himself--may be as eager to support him as they once were.
As Pope Benedict stepped down like these authors predicted he would, claims of mismanagement by Bertone have surfaced in Rome, leaked from competing factions in the Church that are more than happy to seize opportunity to cast aspersion on his leadership in order to elevate their own standing among the College of Cardinals. This may include Archbishop Vigano, whose personal letters to Pope Benedict and Cardinal Bertone concerning his reassignment as Nuncio were partially broadcast by an Italian television news program in January 2012. The letters, confirmed by the Vatican as authentic, exposed a blistering relationship between himself and Bertone involving political jockeying and financial deal making including charges of "corruption, nepotism and cronyism linked to the awarding of contracts to contractors at inflated prices."[i] Most Vatican sources agree that an internal campaign involving Machiavellian manipulation and maneuverings--what Phillip Pullella for Reuters called "a sort of 'mutiny of the monsignors'"[iii]--has been playing out behind the scenes against Bertone. The same sources say "the rebels have the tacit backing of a former secretary of state, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, an influential power-broker in his own right and a veteran diplomat who served under the late Pope John Paul II for 15 years."[iv] If Sodano truly is behind a campaign to undermine papal possibilities for Bertone, suspicions deepen that something may be lingering between FÃ¡tima cover-up conspirators Ratzinger, Bertone, and Sodano, as the reader might recall Antonio Socci's belief that when John Paul II decided to release the Third Secret of FÃ¡tima, a power-struggle of sorts erupted in the Vatican when future Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Ratzinger) wanted to release the Secret in its entirety, but Cardinal Sodano, then Vatican Secretary of State, opposed the idea. Whatever the case may be, the January 26, 2012 headline at The New York Times said it all: "Transfer of Vatican Official Who Exposed Corruption Hints at Power Struggle,"[v] and echoed the fact that, just like in American presidential politics, today's rising star at the Vatican can all-to-soon become crushed under the juggernaut of ambitious and motivated men if one does not vigilantly maintain every bit as much cunning as their challengers. Other dubious movements in Rome also verified a game was afoot. This includes a hasty appointment on January 11, 2012, by Pope Benedict XVI of another Italian, Archbishop Lorenzo Baldisseri, as the new secretary of the Congregation for Bishops (the branch of the Roman Curia that oversees the selection of new bishops). Baldisseri is intriguing because his Principal Consecrator during his 1963 ordination was Bertone predecessor and FÃ¡tima deception accomplice, Cardinal Angelo Sodano. And Baldisseri's ordination to priesthood occurred June 29, 1963, eight (8) days after Giovanni Montini (Pope Paul VI) was elected. This is interesting on two levels. First, the number eight (8) is associated with destiny, divinity, occult fertility rites, resurrection, and the incarnation of Jesus (888), as any Bishop of Rome knows. But more importantly, the exact date of Baldisseri's ordination--June 29, 1963--is the very day on which Malachi Martin swore the "enthronement of the fallen Archangel Lucifer" took place in the Roman Catholic Citadel. This rituale, as Martin had called it, had two primary objectives: 1) to enthrone Lucifer as the true Prince over Rome; and 2) to assure the sorcerous inception and embodiment in flesh of that immaterial spirit into a priest was made, one who would later become Petrus Romanus.
In his book, Windswept House, Martin wrote:
The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer was effected within the Roman Catholic Citadel on June 29, 1963; a fitting date for the historic promise about to be fulfilled. As the principal agents of this Ceremonial well knew, Satanist tradition had long predicted that the Time of the Prince would be ushered in at the moment when a Pope would take the name of the Apostle Paul [Pope Paul VI]. That requirement--the signal that the Availing Time had begun--had been accomplished just eight days before with the election of the latest Peter-in-the-Line.[vi]
The big problem with Baldisseri is that he does not yet appear papabile, so his role may be coincidental or that of a carrier collaborator, for the mystery of the 1963 conclave, which began June 19 and ended June 21 with the election of Pope Paul VI, carries a secret most in the public are completely unaware of but that Malachi Martin most courageously took on. It is called in investigative circles, "The Siri Thesis," and involves whispered evidence that Cardinal Giuseppe Siri of Genoa actually received the majority vote in both the 1958 and 1963 conclaves but under mysterious pressure refused the papal office.
When asked twenty years later if in both conclaves he had initially been elected as pontiff, Siri responded, "I am bound by the secret. This secret is horrible. I would have books to write about the different conclaves. Very serious things have taken place. But I can say nothing."[vii] Malachi Martin wasn't so silent. He claimed to be an eye-witness of the 1963 Conclave and in his book, The Keys of This Blood, said that Siri was in fact elected pope in both 1958 and 1963, but that his election was "set aside" because of "interference" by an "emissary of an internationally based organization" (the Freemasons).[viii] Given that our bestselling book, Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here, is based in part on the prophecy attributed to St. Malachy called "The Prophecy of the Popes," we would be remiss not to also point out how, in 1958, the inevitability of Siri's election was believed so strongly that in Italy, "the prophesy of Saint Malachy, describing Pius' successor as 'Shepherd and Sailor' [#107 in the Prophecy of the Popes] (Pastor et Nauta), was commonly attributed to the illustrious Archbishop of Genoa [Siri]. The maritime city had been his life-long home, where he was born the son of a dockworker. It was the most important seaport in the country, and birthplace of Christopher Columbus. A Genoan newspaper would write: 'No one better than Siri could symbolize this motto: he is a pastor of highest virtues, a captain of the ship, born and raised on the sea.'"[ix]
So how and for what purpose could the election of Siri have been set aside and covered up so completely? William G. von Peters, Ph.D., explains in The Siri Thesis:
Most Catholics today, simply cannot comprehend why or how such a crime could have been so successfully carried out almost undetected by the outside world, with the active participation of high princes of the Church, over the span of a generation, as alleged by the "Siri thesis". Surely such a long, drawn-out conspiracy would be beyond the ability of even the most evil of men. But 130 years ago, Pope Pius IX explained that: "If one takes into consideration the immense development which [the]...secret societies have attained; the length of time they are persevering in their vigor; their furious aggressiveness; the tenacity with which their members cling to the association and to the false principles it professes; the persevering mutual cooperation of so many different types of men in the promotion of evil; one can hardly deny that the SUPREME ARCHITECT [the god of Freemasonry] of these associations (seeing that the cause must be proportional to the effect) can be none other than he who in the sacred writings is styled the PRINCE OF THE WORLD; and that Satan himself even by his physical cooperation, directs and inspires at least the leaders of these bodies physically cooperating with them."[x]
Further speculation about the Masonic plot originally spelled out in the Alta Vendita does seem related to what went on in the 1958 and 1963 conclaves because it was under these secret meetings when the popes were "elected" that would implement the Second Vatican Council and its Vendita-like heretical decrees. Of course we could cite once again a plethora of Church Fathers, Marian apparitions, and Catholic seers down through time that had forecast these events as a pre-game for the arrival of Petrus Romanus. Even Saint Francis of Assisi--one of the most venerated religious figures in history--gathered his devotees shortly before his death and prophesied that: "At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death... Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it...for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer."[xi] As we were writing our book, the Vatican entered the Golden Anniversary of Vatican II, a perfect time, Illuminati would say, to install Petrus Romanus and to exact their revenge. But we are left, at least for the moment, with a quandary as to which of the candidates we have discussed in this chapter (or perhaps an as yet unidentified contender) will fulfill the dark augury of the Prophecy of the Popes amidst a showdown that is set to occur among the College of Cardinals inside the Sistine Chapel in the Palace of the Vatican during the next few weeks. The unpleasant reality is that a conflict over who will become Petrus Romanus is boiling beneath the surface, largely unknown to the public but nevertheless foresaw by Catholic mystics such as Father Herman Bernard Kramer in his work, "The Book of Destiny." Note his frightening and strange interpretation of the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation concerning "the great wonder" mentioned in verse one. Father Kramer prophesied:
The "sign" in heaven is that of a woman with child crying out in her travail and anguish of delivery. In that travail, she gives birth to some definite "person" who is to RULE the Church with a rod of iron (verse 5). It then points to a conflict waged within the Church to elect one who was to "rule all nations" in the manner clearly stated. In accord with the text this is unmistakably a PAPAL ELECTION, for only Christ and his Vicar have the divine right to rule ALL NATIONS... But at this time the great powers may take a menacing attitude to hinder the election of the logical and expected candidate by threats of a general apostasy, assassination or imprisonment of this candidate if elected."[xii]
While we disagree with Kramer's interpretation of the book of Revelation, the idea that a specific "person" was born and is now of the appropriate age to fulfill the incarnation of St. Malachy's Prophecy of the Popes and to produce the Man of Sin, is without question. Kramer's fear that "great powers may take a menacing attitude to hinder the election of the logical and expected candidate" also reverberates the sentiment of other priests, past and present, including Cardinal Archbishop Paolo Romeo, the leader of Sicily's
Catholics, who made headlines February 10, 2012 when the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano (which is famous for breaking exclusives) published parts of a secret communique involving the Cardinal and a criminal conspiracy to assassinate Pope Benedict XVI before the end of 2012.[xiii] Evidently at the center of the Mordkomplott (or contract to kill the pope) was political machinations in Rome involving Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, whose growing thirst for power Benedict had come to hate according to the leaked document, and another Italian now favored as successor by Benedict, Cardinal Angelo Scola, currently the Archbishop of Milan. The contract against the pope and the prediction by Cardinal Paola that was allegedly made in secret to his Italian and Chinese business partners in Beijing concerning Benedict not living past the end of 2012 was apparently believed serious enough that somebody among Paola's listeners "suspected that he himself was involved in a specific plot to assassinate Pope Benedict XVI. At least one of those present therefore reported the Cardinal's words to Rome, and a special report on the incident--complied by Cardinal DarÃo CastrillÃ³n Hoyos and written in German in an attempt to stop it from being leaked--was presented to the Pope on 30 December last year." [xiv] Was Benedict's decision to step down (which he did secretly and officially in 2012 right when we said he would but waited until 2013 to make public) made as a result of pressure from those who had threatened his life?
Whether or not the threat whispered by Paola was actually formulated, the report illustrates once again how efforts were being made by at least some members of the College of Cardinals to align themselves as candidates for Petrus Romanus. Besides Francis Arinze, Tarcisio Bertone, Peter Turkson, and Angelo Scola, last year we rounded out our top ten candidates for the Final Pope in descending order with Cardinals Gianfranco Ravasi, Leonardo Sandri, Ennio Antonelli, Jean-Louis Tauran, Christoph SchÃ¶nborn, and Marc Quellet.
Time will tell if any of these are elected or if another candidate will become Petrus Romanus, but with these in mind, a finishing thought each of these papal contenders may want to consider is how many Catholics believe the sixteenth-century seer Nostradamus was actually the author of "The Prophecy of the Popes." If that is so, the popular West African Cardinal Peter Turkson being "young" in terms of electability at age sixty-three may have a way of coming back around. The "dark horse" candidate Turkson--and his ideas for a one-world financial and political authority housed in the United Nations--could become a remarkable and unexpected fulfillment of both the Prophecy of the Popes and Nostradamus's prediction of an end-times "young black pope" who seizes control of the Roman Hierarchy with the assistance of conspirators during times of darkness and war. In Quatrain 6.25 Nostradamus wrote:
Through Mars adverse [a time of war] will be the monarchy
Of the great fisherman [the pope] in trouble ruinous
A young black red [a young black Cardinal] will seize the hierarchy
The predators acting on a foggy day
One final thought for this entry...
Contemporaneous to the arrival of the False Prophet (Petrus Romanus?) is a prophecy from what is widely considered the most important work of Jewish Kabbalah, the Zohar, a collection of books written in medieval Aramaic over seven hundred years ago containing mystical commentary on the Pentateuch (five books of Moses, the Torah). In addition to interpreting Scripture, the "Vaera" section (volume 3, section 34) includes "The signs heralding Mashiach," or "The coming of the Messiah." The fascinating date for "his" appearance is set in the Zohar in 2012-2013! Given the rejection of Jesus by orthodox Jews as Messiah, Christians understand this "coming" would herald the unveiling of Antichrist.
J. R. Church of Prophecy in the News called our office a couple years back and led us through verses 476 - 483 of this part of the Zohar to point out what nobody in the 2012 research community had written before--that the time of Jacob's trouble (the Great Tribulation, which some Catholic scholars say begins with the election of Petrus Romanus) will commence according to this ancient text in the year 2012-2013 when the "kings of the earth" gather in Rome, possibly during a papal conclave, and are killed by fiery stones or missiles from the sky.
The prophecy in the Zohar, given by Jews hundreds of years separate from the divination of "the last pope," is amazing when compared with the Catholic prediction. The final pope, "Peter the Roman," whose reign ends in the destruction of Rome, will assume authority during a time of great tribulation, and then "the City of Seven Hills will be destroyed, and the terrible and fearsome Judge will judge his people." But Dr. Church pointed out how in the Jewish Zohar, this vision of the destruction of Rome is repeated, though one prophecy connects it to the coming of the False Prophet, and the other, the Antichrist:
This ancient rabbinical dissertation claims that Rome will be destroyed in the Jewish calendar year 5773, which, in our calendar begins with the new moon of September 2012 and concludes a year later in 2013:
"In the year seventy-three [2012/2013] the kings of the world will assemble in the great city of Rome, and the Holy One will shower on them fire and hail and meteoric stones until they are all destroyed, with the exception of those who will not yet have arrived there."
Is he hinting at the destruction of Mystery Babylon? He notes that not all kings will be destroyed. Of those remaining, he says: "These will commence anew to make other wars. From that time the Messiah will begin to declare himself, and round him there will be gathered many nations and many hosts from the uttermost ends of the earth."[xv]
Thus the false messiah (antichrist) was predicted in a seven-hundred-year-old Jewish prophecy to appear in 2012-2013. Similarly, the nine-hundred-year-old Prophecy of the Popes looks to be unfolding in parallel fashion to provide Petrus Romanus--the Final Pope. It won't be long now before we know if these Jewish sages were correct.

EXO-VATICANA (Pt 19)
Petrus Romanus, PROJECT LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior.
Posted: March 5, 2013
PART 19: THE GOSPEL OF ET...
Here It Comes, Ready Or Not
By Tom Horn & Cris Putnam
As our book Exo-Vaticana heads to the printer we still do not know whether the last pope will turn out to be a person on our short list, but, whoever he is, intrigue surrounds how he may accommodate the newly celebrated astro-theology of Rome's top astronomers and theologians and whether this will somehow fulfill the Catholic prophecies of the coming Man of Sin--the seed of Satan--either as an alien serpent-savior, or as a deceiver that points mankind to a god of another world.
In point of fact, the Bible describes both the False Prophet (Petrus Romanus?) and the Antichrist as having allegiances and endowments not of this Earth. Not only can both of them call "fire" (lightning that struck St. Peter's Basilica two weeks ago?) down from out of those heavens suspected to be the host-location of aliens (see Revelation 13:12 - 14 as a clear alliance with the "powers" of the celestial realm), but the prophet Daniel tells us their belief system will actually honor a "strange, alien god." In Daniel 11:38 - 39 we read:
But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds [Hebrew Mauzzim] with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (emphasis added)
Several parts of Daniel's prophecy stand out as very unusual. First, the "God of forces" or alternately "god of fortresses" has been connected to Baal-Shamem, literally "Lord of the Heavens," a deity whom the Manichaean Gnostics later worshipped as "the greatest angel of light."[i] His second reference to the deity as "a strange god" is also intriguing. The Hebrew text can be literally rendered "with an alien god." Add to this how the turn-of-the-century Protestant scholars translated this text as directly related to segments at the Vatican, and things get really interesting (more on that later).
With this in mind and based on other documents contained in the upcoming book, it's evident that for hundreds of years, both Catholic prophets and Protestant reformers believed the Antichrist would ultimately champion a strange, alien deity (and this fits perfectly with what we have documented and have even been assured of in person by today's Vatican authorities, astronomers, and theologians, as readers will discover). They also saw how this union would ultimately lead to war and destruction from the heavens. And these visionaries were not alone in their assessment concerning a powerful alien-christ and his coming war as the result of otherworldly alliances. Government leaders around the globe have believed this for some time, and as far back as 1955, General Douglas MacArthur warned:
You now face a new world, a world of change. We speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy. The nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.[iv]
Over thirty years later, one of America's most beloved presidents, Ronald Reagan, echoed the same before the United Nations when he said:
In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.[v]
In Britain, the five-star admiral and former head of the British Ministry of Defence, Lord Hill-Norton, expressed his opinion that "some UFO encounters are definitely antithetical to orthodox Christian belief" and helped to form an international group called UFO Concern to assess the phenomenon as it pertains to religion and national security.[vi] More recently, the former UFO adviser for the UK Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope, acknowledged that Britain has even prepared (and is preparing) top-secret sophisticated aparati in anticipation of this future military engagement against space invaders.[vii] Global leaders outside the United Kingdom who have hinted similar knowledge of a potential external threat include former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford, former US Senator Barry Goldwater, J. Edgar Hoover when he was director of the FBI,[viii] and the former president of the old Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, who believed "it must be treated seriously."[ix] It makes one wonder if something of this knowledge was behind recent Vatican comments when it criticized the Ridley Scott film Prometheus, saying that it is "a bad idea to defy the gods."[x]
The Gospel According to ET--Ready or Not, Here it Comes
Over the last decade especially, the Vatican has ramped up its production of science and theology studies aimed at developing an ecclesiastical position for disclosure of extraterrestrial intelligence. This includes November 2009, when it convened a five-day study week on astrobiology at the summer residence of the pope on the grounds of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, during which astronomers and scientists from countries around the world joined prominent churchmen to evaluate "the origin of life and its precursor materials, the evolution of life on Earth, its future prospects on and off the Earth, and the occurrence of life elsewhere."[xi] Whether any discussion was held at that time concerning the LUCIFER device and what it is monitoring in deep space from atop Mt. Graham is unknown (the meetings were private), but just three months later, in January 2010, the Royal Society, the National Academy of Science of the UK, and the Commonwealth hosted representatives from NASA, the European Space Agency, and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs to discuss "The Detection of Extraterrestrial Life and the Consequences for Science and Society."[xii] Lord Martin Rees, president of the Royal Society and Astronomer Royal, and other speakers at that time referred to "overwhelming evidence" and "unprecedented proof" to signify how close we are to making irrefutable disclosure of alien life. This had Vatican spokesmen in the news again with increasingly candid statements regarding the future of the Church and Jesuit preparations to accommodate a dynamic ET reality.
In the lead-up to the Vatican-sponsored conference on astrobiology, the official Church newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, interviewed Father José Gabriel Funes, an astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory who made it clear that accepting the reality of intelligent aliens does not contradict the Catholic faith and that, in fact, to believe otherwise is the real heresy, as it puts "limits on God's creative freedom." Attorney Daniel Sheehan, who served for ten years as general counsel to the United States Jesuit Headquarters in Washington, DC, said Funes' explicit statement that disbelief in extraterrestrial intelligence "puts limits on God's creative freedom" was code-talk for those in the know. He wrote:
On the face of it, this statement may not seem like an important event.... However, unbeknownst to the non-Catholic world, Father Funes' specific choice of words tracks precisely the exact wording of the key aspect of the official Catholic Church Edict that was issued in 1277 by Bishop Etienne Tempier, the Bishop of Paris, in which the Catholic Church officially condemned St. Thomas Aquinas' Theological Proposition #34 in which Aquinas had publically asserted that "the first cause [meaning God] cannot possibly have created other worlds." Proposition #34 was officially condemned by the Catholic Church on the specific grounds that "it seems to set limits on God's creative freedom," the precise words that were deliberately used by Father Funes in 2008.[xiv]
Sheehan went on to explain why the reassertion of this theological position by Roman Catholic leaders is very important:
The fact that these precise words were chosen by the official Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory to announce the new official policy of the Roman Catholic Church acknowledging the likelihood of the existence of extraterrestrial life elsewhere in the universe is understood by those of us who are familiar with such matters to be no mere coincidence. It may, indeed, prove to be of extraordinary importance. For this specific 1277 Catholic Edict that condemned Proposition #34 of Thomas Aquinas is deemed, by Church authorities and by secular historians alike, to have been the action which opened "the plurality of worlds debate" in Western civilization, which led directly to the removal of earth from the center of the universe four-hundred years ago. And these words may point the way, here in the twenty-first century, to our removal from our position on the pinnacle of the pyramid of life." [xv]
What Sheehan here identified is the belief by most Catholic theologians that Christianity as we know it is based on a pre-Copernican cosmology. Once cosmology changes as a result of new discovery or disclosure of alien life, so, too, will theology, whether explicitly or implicitly. To believe otherwise is "cosmic hubris," thought Andrew Burgess, who wrote:
As long as someone is thinking in terms of a geocentric universe and an earth-deity, the story has a certain plausibility.... As soon as astronomy changes theories, however, the whole Christian story loses the only setting within which it would make sense. With the solar system no longer the center of anything, imagining that what happens here forms the center of a universal drama becomes simply silly.[xvi]
While some in the Catholic church believe there is no official church teaching on Extraterrestrial Intelligence (which, as we document, is coming), it is possible to derive their trajectory even now from officially sanctioned literature. Kenneth J. Delano's Many Worlds, One God (1977) is described on its dust jacket as "an intelligent discussion of the existence of extraterrestrial life and its impact upon mankind." The thing that makes this book important is that it advocates belief in ETs and boasts a nihil obstat and an imprimatur. A nihil obstat is an official approval granted by a designated censor in the Roman Catholic Church. Its presence certifies that a work does not contradict Catholic teachings on matters of faith and morals. An imprimatur is the final approval and official declaration by the bishop in the diocese where the work is to be published, indicating the content is free from errors concerning Catholic doctrine.
In this hard-to-find work, Delano states, "Extraterrestrial visitors to our planet might display an astonishing knowledge and understanding of the universal laws of nature as well as psychic abilities that enable them to exercise powers of mind over matter to an equally amazing degree. To our bewildered human race, their wondrous deeds would be indistinguishable from the miraculous. An experience of this sort would shake the foundations of many a person's religion."[xvii] He continues, "In our dealings with ETI, we will have to adopt a way of thinking called 'cultural relativism' by anthropologists. Like cultural relativists who do not assume that their way of life is better than the 'weird' or 'evil' practices of other peoples, we must not assume that our species, Homo sapiens, is morally superior to any other species of intelligence in space."[xviii] This sort of relativism leaves mankind wide open for a great deception scenario. Furthermore, the idea that "moral truth is relative" is dangerously false. An extreme example makes this self-evident. For example, we ask, "Is there ever a circumstance in which 'killing babies for fun' is morally virtuous?" Of course, no one in his or her right mind will answer affirmatively. Thus, moral truths are not relative. If something is evil, it is evil for all. The sanctioned Roman Catholic position treating ETI in terms of cultural relativism demonstrates just how susceptible the Vatican is to evil supernaturalism cloaked in an alien guise.
Philosopher J. Edgar Burns foresaw how space exploration would thus become the cosmic center for the birth of a new "space-faith" (what he also called "cosmolatry") that ultimately would give birth to a new religion. "By 'new religion' it is not entirely clear whether Burns meant an annihilation of the past or a breakthrough in religious consciousness that renders our 'truth claims' obsolete," wrote Ilia Delio in Christ in Evolution. "What the term does connote, however, echoes an insight of the [Jesuit] Pierre Teilhard de Chardin [whose conclusions were celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI], namely, that Christianity is reaching the end of one of the natural cycles of its existence. 'Christ must be born again,' he said, 'he must be reincarnated in a world that has become too different from that in which he lived.' It is in light of this insight that 'exoChristology,' a term Burgess used to discuss Christological issues 'raised by discoveries in outer space,' takes on new import for Christian faith."[xix] This also casts significant light on the new official position of the Vatican that not believing in aliens and being willing to accept their superior morality and coming new religion is not only paramount to heresy, but is based on a dying and antiquated belief system. Given that the Vatican holds sway to over 1 billion followers as well as influencing an even greater number of peoples, governments, and policies worldwide, any puny obstacles to their revised Christianity will thus hardly keep most of the world's "spiritual" people from wholeheartedly embracing the alien serpent-saviors on their arrival. In fact, acquiescence to ET gods will be widely and positively received by the masses of the world, according to Vatican astronomer and professor of fundamental theology, Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti, exactly because:
Extraterrestrial life contexts re-propose the intervention of mediators from faraway worlds, the delivery of moral messages that awaken in human beings the existential questions that ordinary terrestrial life has made dormant. Moreover... contact with civilizations different from our own is...a powerful conceptual place in which the human family returns to wisdom and self-understanding.
As Paul Davies has intelligently pointed out... "The powerful theme of alien beings acting as a conduit to the Ultimate--whether it appears in fiction or as a seriously intended cosmological theory--touches a deep chord in the human psyche. The attraction seems to be that by contacting superior beings in the sky, humans will be given access to privileged knowledge, and that the resulting broadening of our horizons will in some sense bring us a step closer to God." [xx]
Professor Tanzella-Nitti further elaborated on this alien-derived "privileged knowledge" in his doctrinal paper for the Vatican in which he expressed theologically how, upon open contact with these highly advanced aliens, the Church will "have to conclude that our understanding of Revelation until that moment had been largely imprecise and even ambiguous [or, nowhere near the truth]."[xxi]
But all is not lost, as a new and improved religious "revelation" based on information acquired from another world is coming. It will involve a "strange, alien God" according to prophecy and (according to both ancient and modern authorities) be advocated for by a priesthood seated in Rome. Just be aware that there is a considerable downside. To reject the mysterious new gospel or even to neglect bowing down before the image that the deity sets up in its place (Daniel 11:38 - 38; Revelation 13:15) will result in "as many as [will] not worship the image of the beast [to] be killed." There will be no place for those heretics Father Funes referred to who reject the (papal?) decree and refuse to accept the alien dogma. Any such denial will definitely not go unpunished.

Sephardic Jews invited back to Spain after 500 years
By Gerry Hadden
PRI's The World
6 March 2013
More than 500 years ago, tens of thousands of Jews fled Spain because of persecution. Now their descendants are being invited to return.
Before the infamous Spanish Inquisition of the 15th Century, some 300,000 Jews lived in Spain. It was one of the largest communities of Jews in the world.
Today, there are about 40,000 or 50,000 - but that number could be about to swell dramatically.
In November, Spain's justice minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon announced a plan to give descendants of Spain's original Jewish community - known as Sephardic Jews - a fast-track to a Spanish passport and Spanish citizenship.
"In the long journey Spain has undertaken to rediscover a part of itself, few occasions are as moving as today," he said.
Anyone who could prove their Spanish Jewish origins, he said, would be given Spanish nationality.
1478 - Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition established in Spain
King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile wanted Spain to be entirely Catholic
1492 - Edict of Expulsion ordered Jews to convert or leave
Muslim converts were called Moriscos. They were expelled in 1609
The news spread like wildfire among Sephardic Jews around the world.
According to the Spanish Federation of Jewish Communities, which processes the applications, there were about 6,000 enquiries in the first month alone - including one from an unnamed member of the US Congress.
"My initial reaction was that this was a really thrilling moment - that it was an act of justice," says Doreen Carvajal, a US citizen and reporter with the New York Times in Paris.
"It was a romantic notion on my part. I told my husband, 'I think I'm going to try and get the passport because it closes a circle'. It was very poetic."
Carvajal was brought up Catholic, but a few years ago, she discovered she has Sephardic Jewish roots.
She began to investigate, eventually tracing her family tree back to the 15th Century and the city of Segovia, north of Madrid. She has countless documents, and has detailed her story in a book, The Forgetting River: A modern tale of survival, identity and the Inquisition.
But Carvajal says that when she contacted the Spanish Federation of Jewish Communities, she learned that she didn't qualify. Not yet, anyway.
Carvajal's family was among the estimated one-third of Spanish Jews who converted to Catholicism to escape the Inquisition's clutches. They were known as the "conversos".
So, Carvajal is technically the descendant of converts. She's not a practising Jew herself. She was told she would have to convert back to Judaism before she could get Spanish citizenship.
"It felt like another act of being forced. Here are these people, the descendants of the forced ones, the conversos, being told you have to do this, you have to be a certain religion. So what happens if you're a secular Jew?"
Jews have lived in Spain since Roman times
Sephardic comes from the Hebrew word Sepharad, which means Spain
Originally used to refer to descendants of the Jews from Spain
They are scattered around the world - in Israel, Turkey, the US, South America, Greece, Bulgaria, France and the UK, for example
Sephardic Jew is now a wider term, and can refer to Jews of Oriental, Asian and African origin
The fast-track procedure has not yet taken effect - and Carvajal may well be entitled to citizenship when the rules are finalised.
The secretary general of the Spanish Federation of Jewish Communities, Mauricio Toledano, told the BBC that the government is still working on details of the scheme, and when the new law is presented to parliament, it's expected to specifically state that all descendants of Sephardic origin - whether they are Jewish or not - be given citizenship.
In total, about 100,000 Jews fled Spain in the course of the 15th Century. Some went to North Africa, but most settled in the economic powerhouse of the day, the Ottoman Empire - which then stretched from Hungary to Turkey, and beyond that to the south, and was expanding.
About 90% of Jews in modern-day Turkey are Sephardic Jews. Roni Rodrigue, 55, a car dealer in Istanbul, has already claimed his Spanish passport.
"I just thought I have a right to apply for citizenship, so why not."
He did this four years ago, under a pre-existing scheme, and got his papers in 11 months - though some of his friends have been waiting years.
Conversos and cryptos...
It was the Jews who converted to Catholicism - rather than those who remained Jewish - who faced the greatest persecution under the Inquisition, says Stanford historian Professor Aron Rodrigue.
The conversos were under a constant watch, and it was considered a heresy if they were found to be practising any remnants of their Judaism. They faced fines, imprisonment - and the infamous burning at the stake.
No-one knows how many continued practising their Judaism secretly, under cover. Those who did were sometimes called crypto-Jews.
Some who converted went to Spanish colonies in the Americas, but that offered them little protection - the same Inquisition rules applied there.
Rodrigue has no plans to move to Spain, and has only been there twice, but says he still feels a connection.
He's a speaker of a dying language, Ladino. It's specific to Sephardic Jews and based on old Spanish, with words borrowed from Hebrew and the many countries in which they have settled since.
Rodrigue's parents spoke Ladino to each other but it has not been passed on to his children, or to most of the new generation of Sephardic Jews around the world.
It's not uncommon, though, for Sephardic Jews to feel the pull of Spain.
"I'm still Spanish in my soul and in my heart," says one British Sephardic Jew, who asked not to be named.
He's building a house in Spain, has bought land, and even a plot in which to be buried.
Like Carvajal, he's been left disappointed by the existing rules for acquiring citizenship, and stands to benefit from the new system.
He successfully went through the process to gain Spanish citizenship some time ago, but says he withdrew his application at the very end, when he discovered he would have to give up his British passport to complete the process - something he was not prepared to do.
The proposed new law, if passed, is expected to allow all new citizens of Sephardic origin to keep their existing passports.
Holy Week in southern Spain is full of ancient imagery
It is well known that when Spain expelled the Jews in 1492 it had a disastrous effect on the economy - many were wealthy textile traders, jewellers and bankers.
"At the time of the Ottoman Empire, the Sultan was said to have commented that he couldn't understand why a great Spanish king like Ferdinand would go without the Jews - who were such a source of wealth - and just give them to him," says Maria Josep Estanyol, a historian at the University of Barcelona.
Expelled from England
Jews were expelled from the England in 1290 - 200 years before the Spanish Inquisition
There were similar expulsions in France and a number of European countries
It was not until the 1650s that Jews were allowed to live in England again
Many of the first to return were Sephardic Jews of Spanish or Portuguese origin
"The Sultan was very pleased to receive these Jewish families, who went on to enrich his empire."
For decades, there has been a movement to allow Sephardic Jews to return, but it is unclear why the Spanish government has chosen to bring up the issue again now.
In theory, enticing them back now could give a boost to Spain's shrinking economy, although Estanyol doubts very many will re-establish roots in Spain.
"Given how disastrous things are here today, I'd advise against it," she says.
It has also been suggested that Spain made the offer to mollify Israel, after Madrid supported last year's successful Palestinian bid for a seat at the United Nations.
Whatever the motivation, some Muslim scholars are denouncing the offer as unfair. They point out that their ancestors were expelled from Spain during the Inquisition. But no-one is inviting them back.

RETAILERS YANK NBC ADS IN WAR ON JESUS
'He may be wearing sandals, but He can still kick a--'
by JOE KOVACS
Major retailers including Sears and JC Penney are removing their ads from NBC's "Saturday Night Live" after the comedy show aired a movie spoof featuring the risen Jesus Christ going on a bloodthirsty, gun-packing vengeance mission.
"We applaud Sears and JCPenney for their wise action to stop funding damaging material such as the skit that mocked our Lord Jesus Christ on 'Saturday Night Live,'" Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association said Tuesday.
"I can tell you that as long as corporations support this kind of offensive material, their sales are going to suffer as shoppers abandon retailers that support blasphemy," he said.
"I hope folks can reinstate their patronage to these stores, and that Sears and JCPenney can stick with the good decisions they have now made," he added.
A statement from Sears indicated, "It wasn't supposed to happen and we're taking steps to make sure it doesn't happen again. Going forward our ads will not run in this form again around 'SNL.'"
As WND reported, the show mocked famous Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino Feb. 16 with a gruesomely violent, fictitious movie trailer about Jesus wreaking bloody revenge upon the Romans who killed him.
"He's risen from the dead," the parody's voiceover intones, "and He's preaching anything but forgiveness. He may be wearing sandals, but He can still kick a - ."
The parody then re-enacts a number of Tarantino's scenes, only with "Jesus," "St. Peter" and other biblical characters shooting, beating and slicing their victims, all while sprays of blood splatter the screen.
"Jesus? O sh - !" shouts one victim about to suffer Jesus' wrath. "Chill, man, chill!"
To which the "Jesus" character responds, "When you get to heaven, say 'hi' to my dad," before blowing a melon-sized hole in the man's torso.
The parody was also blasted by some American Muslims, who called it insulting to both Christians and Muslims worldwide.
"Such misrepresentation of what Jesus, peace be upon him, stands for is extremely offensive to Muslims and to all those who believe in his message," said Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
"While we understand the use of shocking imagery and bizarre juxtapositions to provoke a humorous response, we believe such a distasteful portrayal of a religious figure revered by billions of Muslims and Christians worldwide crosses the comedic line.
"We strongly support free speech rights for all, but one would hope that common decency and respect for the beliefs of others would help avoid such unfortunate depictions."
Awad noted many people are unaware that Muslims revere and love Jesus as one of God's greatest messengers, and that every time Muslims mention Jesus' name, they add "peace be upon him."
Islam's holy book, the Quran, states: "Behold! The angels said: 'O Mary! God gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and in (the company of) those nearest to God.'" (3:45)
The Quran also depicts Jesus speaking from the cradle and, with God's permission, curing lepers and the blind. (5:110) God also states in the Quran: "We gave (Jesus) the Gospel and put compassion and mercy into the hearts of his followers." (57:27)
Global Elite: The Character Traits of Truly Evil People
The first dangerous mistake the average person makes is the assumption that "evil" is a kind of subjective or "gray" concept. We would love to believe that all destructive and malicious behavior is merely a product of bad environment, bad upbringing, or mental psychosis. Deviance in the name of misguided "profit" or "status" is often more acceptable to the public; as long as there is a reason we can easily understand and grasp. What frightens the average American today is not the abhorrent action of criminality; rather, it is criminality without easily definable reason. What frightens the common citizen is the possibility that some people hurt others not because mommy and daddy "mistreated" them, or because they have a psychological deficiency that clouds their judgment, but because they fully and consciously ENJOY doing what they do. Our society is desperate to make excuses for the monsters of our era, perhaps because we would rather not entertain the possibility that there is a dark side to humanity as a whole, that if left unchecked, could take control in a deliberate and calculated way.
This is why the greatest crimes of our time often go ignored by the public. The idea, for instance, that international financiers and political elites would purposely create economic disparity, social chaos, and global war out of a desire for centralized power and a disturbed sense of superiority is simply too much for many to handle. Surely, these terrible events throughout our modern history are merely the result of random coincidence and human error...right?
Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, the majority of catastrophic cultural policies and tragedies can be traced directly back to a particular subset of people, who use their positions of influence for ill purpose, and knowingly engineer calamity not just for personal gain, but the gain of their "social class".
In the Liberty Movement, we often refer to this group as "Globalists" or "Elitists". They permeate the upper echelons of our nation, and they do indeed have a culture that is entirely separate and disparate from our own. If one studies their literature, their initiatives, and their motives, he would discover another world, driven by outlandish goals and an even more outlandish brand of religious fervor. Here are some of the character traits and beliefs that make these people easy to identify...
Global Elitists tend to see themselves as a separate breed of human being; a superior class with superior faculties, and thus, born to "rule" over the rest of us. In their writings they often espouse the teachings of Plato's Republic, and the concept of the "Philosopher Kings". They believe that some men and women are endowed with a genetic predisposition to leadership, and that the average person does not have the intelligence to determine his own destiny. They see the rest of humanity as a blank canvas, and themselves as the artists. We are to be "molded" and our social dichotomies are to be manipulated.
In reality, they are no smarter than the rest of us. Rather, they inherent positions of wealth and influence, and automatically assume this makes them superior. Their ability to mold society is derived entirely from their extensive capital and their complete lack of morality. If they were not in the top .1% of the worlds rich, they would be treated like common criminals for their behavior, but sadly, in our day and age money often buys undue respect. Imagine a private club of John Wayne Gacys or Charles Mansons, except with 80% of the world's wealth at their disposal and the means to purchase good publicity and legal immunity. That is essentially what we are dealing with...
"Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton." -- Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society (1953) pp. 49-50.
"Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, 'I foresee a time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.'" -- Zbigniew Brezinski, Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technotronic Era 1970.
Elitists believe that conscience is a hindrance to success, instead of a worthwhile virtue. They knowingly and deliberately abandon their moral compass because they see it as an unnatural restriction, an obstacle that makes getting what they want more difficult. Conscience, however, never quite disappears in anyone. In order to reconcile their wretched mindset with that distant nagging sensation of guilt, they claim that their actions are "for the greater good of the greater number". They desperately want to believe that they are serving the future of mankind, and that we should "appreciate" their guiding hand, even though the things they do seem far more hateful than helpful. They would condescend to call this "tough love".
They further attempt to avoid the fact of their own dysfunction by trying to elicit criminality in others. If they can convince the masses that morality is "relative" and that right and wrong are subject to "interpretation", if they can convince us to ignore our own inner voices which are inborn, then their monstrosity could eventually be considered normal, even preferable. For in a world of moral relativists, the man with a conscience becomes the criminal, the outcast, and the elites become the heroes they always wanted to believe themselves to be.
In the meantime, they will often resort to costume and theater, wrapping themselves in a particular belief system and playing the role of the "saint". The mask rarely comes off until they think their position of power is assured.
"I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so." -- Adolf Hitler.
"Do you really believe the masses will be Christian again? Nonsense! Never again. That tale is finished. No one will listen to it again. But we can hasten matters. The parsons will dig their own graves. They will betray their God to us. They will betray anything for the sake of their miserable jobs and incomes..." -- Adolf Hitler.
"The tenth rule of the ethics of rules and means is that you do what you can with what you have and clothe it in moral arguments. ...the essence of Lenin's speeches during this period was "They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet." And it was." -- Saul Alinsky. (Barack Obama taught the amoral philosophies of Alinsky as an organizer in Chicago. Hillary Clinton made Alinsky the topic of her undergraduate thesis.)
Top globalists are not necessarily collectivists themselves. In fact, they often swing far to the other end of the spectrum into an aberrant form of individualism. As discussed above, they even see conscience as a restriction on their personal freedom, and rebel against it as if rebelling against enslavement. What they do not grasp is that the inherent nature of conscience is a gift, one which has so far kept humanity away from the brink of total self-destruction, at least to this point. It is not a prison. Rather, it is protection from ourselves.
The elitist's insane ideal of "pure individualism" without self discipline is a private matter they rarely discuss. In public, they constantly promote the collectivist lifestyle and admonish individualism in common people as "selfish" or "narcissistic".
People often confuse "collectivism" with "community". This is caused by a lack of understanding as well as a lack of experience. Community is a voluntary gathering of individuals for the purpose of mutual aid. Collectivism is the gathering of people by threat of force or loss, for the purpose of consolidating power into the hands of a few. It is the act of destroying individualism in the name of "protecting the group". In America today, we have a disappearing sense of real community, while the "advantages" of collectivism are being sung to the rooftops by global elites.
If the population can be convinced that they are devoid of inherent qualities and characteristics, and that their environment is the totality of their existence, then they will hand over all power to anyone who promises them the best possible surroundings. That is to say, when we have no faith in our own individualism and self-responsibility, we will automatically seek protection, usually from a nanny government or dictatorship. This process of wrenching self determination from the populace has an ultimate end goal: World Governance and total dominance.
The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world. -- Carroll Quigley [CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton], Tragedy And Hope.
"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." -- Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, 1992.
Elitists are very adamant about the idea of the "noble lie"; the use of a lie to attain a "positive goal". In their view, average citizens lack the capacity to understand the bigger political and social picture, and so, we must be lied to in order to make us do what is best for ourselves. Of course, their version of what is best for our culture always seems to include first and foremost what is best for them.
The noble lie is a logical fallacy of epic proportions, and I often wonder if global elitists secretly doubt its legitimacy, or if they really buy into their own tripe. If you need to lie to people in order to get them to accept your ideas, then there must be something terribly wrong with your ideas. Ideas with vitality and honesty do not need to be "sold" to the public through chicanery; the truth takes on a life of its own. Only destructive philosophies need a foundation of lies in order to take root.
"We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. All the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands." -- Professor Arnold Toynbee, in a June 1931 speech before the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen.
"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have." -- Richard Salent [former CBS News president], Bill Clinton: Friend or Foe.
One of the centerpieces of the globalist religion is the concept of population reduction. They not only see themselves as a separate species with superior genetic makeup and a propensity for rulership, they also see the rest of us as cockroaches and "useless eaters"; a herd that needs to be "culled". The funny thing about population reductionists is that they always want OTHER people to die in order to save the planet. They never offer their own lives as a sacrifice for the "greater good". This is because they assume they are "too important" (ostensibly because they think they are intelligent), while many of us are "expendable".
Of course, overpopulation today is an oversold myth that has been debunked in many scientific circles. Population expansion is also not necessarily a bad thing. Greater population means more minds working on more problems. It drives technological advancement and forces us through the survival imperative to invent more efficient methods of production. There are indeed advantages to growth.
In the end, though, global elites do not care about the Earth. They do not believe in population reduction because they want to reduce pollution, our so-called "carbon footprint", save the poor endangered animals, or even to protect finite resources. They want population reduction because first, they are Eugenicists who see some people as genetically inferior to others, and second, because a culled population is easier to dominate. Again, less minds working means less problems solved, and less individuals to rock the boat when the state abuses its power.
"A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal." -- Audubon magazine, interview with Ted Turner, 1996.
"A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men... The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births." -- John P. Holdren, Top Science Adviser To Barack Obama.
"Out of the full spectrum of human personality, one-fourth is electing to transcend...One-fourth is ready to so choose, given the example of one other...One-fourth is resistant to election. They are unattracted by life ever-evolving. One-fourth is destructive. They are born angry with God...They are defective seeds...There have always been defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a 'natural death'...We, the elders, have been patiently waiting until the very last moment before the quantum transformation, to take action to cut out this corrupted and corrupting element in the body of humanity. It is like watching a cancer grow...Now, as we approach the quantum shift from creature-human to co-creative human--the human who is an inheritor of god-like powers--the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body. We have no choice, dearly beloveds. Fortunately you, dearly beloveds, are not responsible for this act. We are. We are in charge of God's selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death. We come to bring death to those who are unable to know God...The riders of the pale horse are about to pass among you. Grim reapers, they will separate the wheat from the chaff. This is the most painful period in the history of humanity..." -- Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, featured in the film Thrive, a collectivist propaganda piece falsely presented as an attack on the elitist establishment; in other words, controlled opposition.
The Source Of Our Pain
Now, globalists are not the only source of our social pain. We bear some responsibility. When we are not vigilant, when we deny our own ignorance and refuse to learn, when we lie to ourselves, when we cater to personal superficial desires rather than taking the future into account, we open the door for the devil, as it were. Evil, like conscience, resides in us all.
That said, globalists are not just terrible people in a random sense. They have constructed an entire culture of deviance. They are organized evil, and this is a problem that we must deal with soon. Good men are defined not only by their adherence to the inner voice of truth, but also their willingness to act when the truth is threatened. We must educate others, and when the time comes, put ourselves in harms way to remove the globalist ilk, before they destroy everything in a raging elitist fervor...
("Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron." 1 Timothy 4:1-2)
