Kirsty was bubbling. "I only just heard!" she exclaimed."But
I'm told you already know about this."
She crashed onto a chair and looked me straight in the eye.
"Well, what do you know about them - about those six Israelis
dressed as Levitical priests who tried to get into the chamber?"
I just looked at her. But she was not going to let go. "You've
got to tell me," she pressed. "You know, the chamber that
contains the Ark... the Ark of the Covenant. Well... what
happened to them? Were they rabbis?"
I paused for a few moments, studying her wide eyes, and wondering
how much should be revealed.
"We don’t know if they were rabbis or not," I replied. "However,
we were in Jerusalem at the time. And we had direct inter-action
with one person involved.
"The Ark of the Covenant is calculated to be 370 feet north of the
old city wall of Jerusalem - which would locate it in occupied Arab
"As you may be aware, the late Yasser Arafat had every intention
of getting Jerusalem back, including this area. And the U.N. and
the United States seemed to be intent on forcing Israel to
accept that situation.
Well, it seems the Israeli authorities wanted to move the Ark of
the Covenant out of occupied territory, into their own territory.
So, reportedly, they allowed or arranged for six men, who were
dressed in the ancient Levitical garb, to go in and move the Ark."
This is a rather sensitive issue, I explained to Kirsty.
In fact, in matters like this you don't ask too many questions.
One learns from experience that it's best not to get too nosey.
To put you, as well as Kirsty, in the picture, my wife Josephine
and I had arranged to meet our archaeologist friend Ron in
However, on this occasion he was delayed in Nashville, Tennesseee,
due to a minor operation. Our schedule demanded that we fly out
before he arrived.
On visits to Israel, Ron has quite often stopped by the
Antiquities office and asked if there was anything he could help
them with.
He had some electronic equipment and some experience using it,
so our team was able to help find things that they sometimes had
problems locating.
With electronics, one can, for example, see if there is something
in a cave, before going to the bother of opening it. So the
Antiquities guys have had the team do some of this.
On this particular occasion they just said, “Well, yes, we do
have a problem you can help us with.”
So that night Ron was to meet them down at Zedekiah’s Cave.
They went in. Once inside the cave, at the entrance to the tunnel
that goes north, they stopped.
The Antiquities men announced: “Six men went down this tunnel to
move the Ark to a safer place. And they didn’t come out. Would you
go see what happened to them?”
Well, the Israelis are not cowards, by any stretch of the
As it was, the six missing men who entered the tunnel had
walkie-talkies (two-way radios). Undoubtedly they were in contact
with others at the entrance to the tunnel.
We can only surmise that they must have made some horrifying
noises as they died. Otherwise some people would have gone in to
see what happened to them. Nobody would go in.
Well, when Ron went in, there were the six men, all dead.
From the beginning of the tunnel in Zedekiah’s Cave to the
actual chamber containing the Ark of the Covenant is an estimated
370 feet (about 114 meters).
The six men had progressed approximately 70 feet (21 meters)
along the tunnel when they died. All of them died of stroke.
In my subsequent investigation of the event, I was informed that
every one of them was found with both eyes crossed – which a
medical doctor assured me was evidence of a bilateral stroke (
a stroke occurring on both sides of the body).
This allegedly befell all six of them.
Anyway, when Ron saw what had happened, he went back out and told
the Antiquities guys.
They had brought along some rescue baskets made of light-weight
alloy, with ropes tied to them, in case Ron was able to go in.
So he took a basket, and picked up the bodies one at a time, and
put them in the basket, holding it upright, as the men at the
tunnel entrance pulled the basket out.
When they got one to the entrance of the tunnel, Ron took another
one, then went back and did another, until they got all six of the
bodies out.
Ron didn’t ask what they did with them. He didn’t ask anything. He
was asked not to say anything.
But this did appear in a couple of newspapers – that there had been
six Israelis who had died in an effort to retrieve a national
Because it was in the papers, some folk have asked if we knew
about it. The answer, of course, is yes. For this reason I have
shared the above information.
This incident may remind you of some Old Testament accounts in
which unauthorised men who approached, touched or looked into
the Ark dropped dead.
So apparently, nothing has changed. The Ark remains a very sacred
object. And if you ask me, it will remain where it is and no one
will move it.
Of course, as you are aware, Israel today is on tenterhooks. The
government is nervous. It does not want war. Neither do most of
the people, whether Israeli or Arab.
But it is against this background that we must view the current
official attitude toward the reported Ark of the Covenant
discovery. You won't get them to admit much.
Whatever way you view it, that ancient golden chest from Solomon's
Temple is potentially the most explosive object on earth…
archaeologically, politically and religiously.
The barrier of silence should not surprise us. In virtually every
country, official denials of numerous matters are standard
procedure. And in such cases, almost all personnel even in the
department concerned are kept in the dark.
A classic example of the denials policy in action was seen in
April, 1995, after Channel 7 radio in Israel broke the news
that Foreign Minister Shimon Peres had met with the Pope with
a proposal to place the Old City of Jerusalem under Vatican
Israel's ambassador in Rome, Shmuel Hadas, and Peres himself,
denied such a plan.
However, a copy of a telegram sent by Miriam Ziv to the Foreign
Ministry in Jerusalem, outlining Peres' planes, surfaced and
was printed in the "Hatzofe" newspaper.
Former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir told the "Jewish Press"
"This is similar to Peres' denial that there was ever a letter
with promises to Arafat about Jerusalem and later the letter
surfaced. Now this telegram was revealed. Who knows what else
they are concealing from the public?" (Issue of April 14-20,
Anyway, Henry Kroll, something has to be told. So, after much
consideration, I'm about to rip apart a curtain of silence about
the Ark.
Yes, yes... I know. The Ark's been reported in Ethiopia...
in Jordan... in Egypt... and a dozen other places.
Indeed, there have to be replicas. But originals? There can be
only one. And that's what we're talking about.
You won't want to miss this incredible true story.
Here are revealed the down-to-earth inside secrets about a lost
treasure... a dangerous search... and an almost unbelievable
discovery claim.
And yet, when you face all the strands of evidence, what else
could it be?
I'll take you along a trail of archaeological surprises, through
forgotten history and right up until now.
Why did an Israeli ex-Secret service agent say to me, "you have
just filled in the missing gaps in what I already knew"?
What sinister secret associated with the Ark is being covered

Health care death squads decide who lives or dies!!!

This is amazing... how totally 'stupid' the Fed. Govt. can be... and we are 'allowing them now' to control Health Care???
Fortunately...this situation below got 'rescinded' because 'the people' demanded it... but Obama's corrupt Marxist advisors keep on marching...and totally ignored the American people on Health Care...

This is totally crazy and it should make you want to slap the hell out of the idiots we have in Washington DC .

Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . They sell 9mm, .45, .223 ammunition. They normally buy spent brass from the US Department of Defense. Spent brass is "one time used" shell cases used by our Military for training purposes.

They buy the brass, recondition it, and then reload the brass for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Clubs, Gun Shops, and stores like Wal-Mart. They normally buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at a time.

This week the DoD wrote a letter to the owner of Georgia Arms and informed him that from now on the DoD will be destroying the spent brass, shredding it. It will no longer be available to the ammo makers, unless they buy it in a scrap shredded condition (which they have no use for).

The shredded brass is now going to be sold by the DoD to China as scrap metal, after the DoD pays for it to be shredded. The DoD is selling the brass to China for less money than the ammo makers have been paying, plus the DoD has to pay to have the brass shredded and do the accounting paperwork.

This sure helps the economy now doesn't it? Sell cheaper to China , and do not sell at all to a proven US business. Any hidden agenda working here? Obama going after the Firearms Industry and our ammunition!!
The Georgia Arms owner even related a story that one of his competitors had already purchased a load of brass last week. The DoD contacted him this week and said they were sending someone over to make sure it was destroyed. Shell cases he had already bought!

The brass has no value to the ammo maker if it is destroyed/shredded/melted.
The ammo manufacturer only uses the empty brass cases to reload different calibers, mainly .223 bullets.

The owner of Georgia Arms says that he will have to lay off at least half of his 60 workers, within 2-3 months if the DoD will no longer sell spent brass cases to the industry. Georgia Arms has 2-3 months of inventory to use, by summer they're out.

If the Reloading Industry has to purchase new manufacture brass cases, then the cost of ammunition will double or even triple, plus Obama wants to add a 500% tax on each shell.

as you can. Contact your legislators and put them on notice, We're fed up with what's going on in the name of stimulating our economy!

You Won’t BELIEVE What’s Going On with Government Spying on Americans

New Revelations Are Breaking Every Day

Revelations about the breathtaking scope of government spying are coming so fast that it’s time for an updated roundup:
  • NSA whistleblowers say that the NSA collects all of our conversations word-for-word
  • While the government initially claimed that mass surveillance on Americans prevented more than 50 terror attacks, the NSA’s deputy director John Inglis walked that position back all the way to saying that – at the mostone (1) plot might have been disrupted by the bulk phone records collection alone. In other words, the NSA can’t prove that stopped any terror attacks. The government greatly exaggerated an alleged recent terror plot for political purposes (and promoted the fearmongering of serial liars). The argument that recent terror warnings show that NSA spying is necessary is so weak that American counter-terrorism experts have slammed it as “crazy pants”
  • The feds are considering prosecuting the owner of a private email company – who shut down his business rather than turning over records to the NSA – for refusing to fork over the information and keep quiet. This is a little like trying to throw someone in jail because he’s died and is no longer paying taxes
  • Mass spying . Indeed, the Pentagon now sees the collection of “big data” as a “national security threat” … but the NSA is the biggest data collector on the planet, and thus provides a tempting mother lode of information for foreign hackers
  • IT and security professionals are quite concerned about government spying
  • Congress members are getting an earful from their constituents about mass surveillance
  • Only 11% of Americans trust Obama to actually do anything to rein in spying
  • A Congressman noted that – even if a mass surveillance program is started for good purposes – it will inevitably turn into a witch hunt

Forced Drugging of US Troops...

Forced Mass Drugging of US Troops an Underreported Scandal

Soldiers being forced to pop pills by exempt officer class
Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
August 19, 2013
The mass drugging of US troops is one of the most underreported scandals of the modern era, with soldiers not only being used as guinea pigs in a brave new world of pharmacological experimentation, but also having their rights stripped as a result.

Sgt. Joe Biggs recently joined the Alex Jones Show to describe in shocking details how he witnessed soldiers in Afghanistan displaying careless ignorance of the threat posed by IED’s because the troops were high on Percocet, a prescription painkiller based on oxycodone, a Schedule II narcotic analgesic which is derived from opium.
While US troops are supposedly guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan (even as opium production continues to hit record highs),increasing numbers of American soldiers are becoming hooked on opiates, some of which are being prescribed to them.
There is now an epidemic of drug use in the U.S. military. Figures show that, “Since 1999, failed drug tests have increased in the U.S. Air Force by 82%, and in the U.S. Army by 37%.”
As Mike Adams documents, the Defense Department notes that “20 percent of U.S. troops are on psychiatric drugs, and that they are often handed as much as a 180-day supply of those pills before being deployed.”
The most underreported aspect of this whole scandal however is that troops are in many cases being forced to take prescription drugs against their will, while those in the officer class are often exempt from both the drugs and the increasing number of dangerous vaccines that are mandatory for new recruits.
“U.S. troops are being forced to take drugs like Prozac and Seroquel for anxiety and depression. Troops cannot refuse to take the drugs without consequences from their superiors. Resistance by U.S. troops to their orders is also running high. Some U.S. military patrols decline to carry out their “search and kill” missions and, instead, return to their bases claiming they carried out their orders,” reported Veterans for America.
Other drugs like Mefloquine are also causing soldiers to go on killing rampages, such as last year’s incident when Robert Bales shot dead 17 Afghan civilians including nine children. Drug abuse is also a core factor behind the shocking rise in soldiers committing suicide. A full third of all military suicides are attributed to side-effects from medication
However, the cycle of drug abuse does not end for US troops when they leave the military. Once hooked on prescription medications, veterans are forced to visit psychologists who diagnose them with mental disorders in order to keep a steady supply of drugs flowing and feed the dependency.
This in turn relegates veterans to become second class citizens, with their right to bear arms stripped as a result of being permanently labeled as having post traumatic stress disorder.
One of the core reasons why the Pentagon is encouraging the mass drugging of US troops is to grease the skids for the Marshal Plan, a long term agenda that will see all soldiers permanently drugged in order to produce “behavior-modifying and performance-enhancing characteristics”.
The mass drugging of US troops is another aspect of government social engineering. It is about creating yet another huge sector of society – just like children in school or foster care – whose dependence on the state is secured via the method of artificially creating a dangerous dependence on drugs.

Best Teacher won award...

---------------------------- Original Message ----------------------------
Subject: Fw: Now She Is A Teacher !!!!
        In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren,
a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, did
something not to be forgotten.  On the     first day of school,
with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal
and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her
classroom. When the first period kids entered the room they
discovered that there were no desks.  'Ms. Cothren, where are our
        She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn
the right to sit at a desk.'
        They thought, 'Well, maybe it's our grades.'  'No,' she sa' Maybe
it's our behavior.' She told them, 'No, it's not even your
        And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third
period. Still no desks in the classroom. Kids called their parents
to tell them what was happening and by early afternoon television
news crews had started gathering at the school to report about
this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room.
        The final period of the day came and as the puzzled students found
seats on the floor of the desk-less classroom. Martha Cothren
said, 'Throughout the day no one has been able to tell me just
what he or she has done to earn the right to sit at the desks that
are ordinarily found in this classroom. Now I am going to tell
        At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her
classroom and opened it. Twenty-seven (27) U.S. Veterans, all in
uniform, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school
        The Vets began placing the school desks in rows, and then they
would walk over and stand alongside the wall. By the time the last
soldier had set the final desk in place those kids started to
understand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, just how
the right to sit at those desks had been earned.
        Martha said, 'You didn't earn the right to sit at these desks.
These heroes did it for you. They placed the desks here for you.
        They went halfway around the world, giving up their education and
interrupting their careers and families so you could have the
freedom you have.  Now, it's up to you to sit in them. It is your
responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be good citizens.
They paid the price so that you could have the freedom to get an

        By the way, this is a true story. And this teacher was awarded
Veterans of Foreign Wars Teacher of the Year for the State of
Arkansas in 2006. She is the daughter of a WWII POW.
        Do you think this email is worth passing along so others
        won't forget either, that the freedoms we have in this great country
        were earned by             our U. S. Veterans?  ................... I
        Let us always remember the men and women of our military and the
        they have won for us.

A fight for free speech...

Intolerable Opinions in an Age of Secret Tribunals

In Love’s free state all powers so levelled be
That them affection governs more than awe.
– William Davenant
In 1638, John Lilburne was put on secret trial by the Star Chamber of Charles I. His crime? The writing and distribution of seditious pamphlets that skewered the legitimacy of the monarchy and challenged the primacy of the high prelates of the Church of England. He was promptly convicted of publishing writing of “dangerous consequence and evil effect.”
For these intolerable opinions, the royal tribunal sentenced him to be publicly flogged through the streets of London, from Fleet Prison, built on the tidal flats where Fleet Ditch spilled out London’s sewage, to the Palace Yard at Westminster, then a kind of public showground for weekly spectacles of humiliation and torture. By one account, Lilburne was whipped by the King’s executioner more than 500 hundred times, “causing his shoulders to swell almost as big as a penny loafe with the bruses of the knotted Cords.”
The bloodied writer was then shackled to a pillory, where, to the amazement of the crowd of onlookers, he launched into an impassioned oration in defense of his friend Dr. John Bastick, the puritan physician and preacher. Only weeks before, Bastick’s ears had been slashed off by the King’s men as punishment for publishing an attack on the Archbishop of Canterbury, an essay that Lilburne had happily distributed far and wide. Lilburne gushered forth about this barbaric injustice for a few moments, before his tormentors gagged his mouth with a urine soaked rag. After enduring another two hours of torture, the guards dragged him behind a cart back to the Fleet, where he was confined in irons for the next two-and-a-half years. This was the first of “Free-Born” John Lilburne’s many parries with the masters of Empire.
While in his foul cell in Fleet prison, Lilburne was kept in solitary confinement on orders of the Star Council, his lone visitor a maid named Katherine Hadley. Somehow the maid was able to sneak pen, paper and ink past the Fleet’s guards to the young radical. According to Lilburne’s own description, he was “lying day and night in Fetters of Iron, both hands and legges,” when he began to write furiously, penning a gruesome account of his mock trial and torture, The Work of the Beast, and a scabrous assault on the Anglican bishops, Come Out of Her, My People. These pamphlets were smuggled out of Newgate, printed in the LowLands and distributed through covert networks across England to popular acclaim and royal indignation.
Oliver Cromwell, then a Puritan leader in the House of Commons, took up Lilburne’s cause, giving a stirring speech in defense of the imprisoned writer. It swayed Parliament, which voted to release Lilburne from jail. Lilburne emerged from prison grateful to Cromwell, but not blind to the general’s dictatorial ambitions: he would later pen savage attacks on Cromwell and his censorious functionaries.
Soon Lilburne joined the Parliamentary Army, fighting with distinction against the royal forces in numerous clashes, including the battle at the Edgehill, the first major encounter of the English Civil War, before being captured at Brentford on 12th November, 1642. Once again he faced trial, this time at Oxford, for “taking up arms against the King.” Lilburne was swiftly convicted and sentenced to death. But his friends in Parliament rose to his defense, threatening similar reprisals against Royalist prisoners. A prisoner exchange was arranged and Lilburne was on the loose again, leading soldiers into battle against the king’s troops, eventually rising to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.
But in 1645 Lilburne abandoned the Cromwell’s New Model Army, known for singing the Psalms as they clamored into battle, after he was told that he must swear to the Solemn League and Covenant, Cromwell’s equivalent of a religious loyalty oath to the Presbyterian church. Lilburne, an Independent, hated oaths and had defied the Star Chamber, in his first prosecution, by refusing to take the oath ex officio, which he argued violated the ancient right of habeas corpus.
But by now, Lilburne was plotting a more profound insurrection aimed at democratizing the army, as well as the rest of the nation. Why, he asked, should soldiers be expected to fight in a war declared by legislators for whom they could not vote? Why, he asked in the halls at Westminster, weren’t the soldiers paid more? Why weren’t the families of the slain compensated?
“Every free man of England, poor as well as rich, should have a vote in choosing those that are to make the law,” Lilburne wrote. “All and every particular and individual man and woman, that ever breathed in the world, are by nature all equal and alike in their power, dignity, authority and majesty, none of them having (by nature) any authority, dominion or magisterial power one over or above another.” Jefferson sounds cautious beside Lilburne’s exuberant prose.
These were the opening shots of the Levellers, aimed, in the words of one observer, “to sett all things straight and rayse a parity and community in the kingdom.” It would be, in Lilburne’s view, a new kingdom, without a king or a House of Lords or even land lords.
The Leveller movement began as a rebellion within a rebellion, spreading from the Army to persecuted religious sects to farmers and working class people. It was a movement energized by writers, headlined by Lilburne, Richard Overton and William Walwyn, and the pamphlets flew off the presses, with more than 2,100 different tracts being printed in 1645. This prompted the repressive acts known as the Ordinances, which suppressed public assemblies, outlawed meetings of Antinomians and Anabaptists, prohibited preaching by lay preachers, and imposed strict censorship of the press. Cromwell’s notorious Committee of Examinations, essentially Parliament’s version of the Star Chamber, was tasked with investigating “scandalous” writing, destroying independent presses and arresting writers, publishers and vendors of documents deemed seditious. These were the oppressive laws, which prompted Milton to write the Areopagitica. Milton’s passionate polemic, one the great defenses of a free press, was mild compared to the furious denunciations that poured from Lilburne’s pen.
These testy impertinences landed Lilburne in Newgate again, this time on charges of libel. But 2,000 leading Londoners signed a petition on his behalf and public riots in his defense prompted his quick release. The experience only served to sharpen his resistance to Cromwell, who he saw as a dictatorial sell-out to the forces of Empire (not unlike, say, John Kerry), and the leading agent of state oppression. He fired off a threatening public letter to Cromwell, which darkly concluded: “rest assured if ever my hand is upon you, it shall be when you are in your full glory.”
Lilburne and his Leveller cohorts started an underground paper called The Moderate. The title was something of a joke. After all the Leveller platform seems downright
pinko by our constricted standards: they wanted to outlaw monopolies, eliminate taxes on the poor, impose term limits on members of Parliament, eliminate all restrictions on the press and religious worship, universal suffrage and assure trial by juror for all defendants.
But Lilburne was far from the most radical spirit in those topsy-turvy days. He was outflanked to his left by Gerrard Winstanley’s Diggers and by the Seekers, Ranters, Antinomians and militant fen dwellers, the Earth First!ers of their time.
Like Tom Paine, he opposed the death penalty, speaking out against the execution of Charles I. “I refused to be one of his (Charles I) judges,” Lilburne wrote. “They were no better than murders in taking away the King’s life even though he was guilty of the crimes he was charged with. It is murder because it was done by a hand that had no authority to do it.”
Cut to 1649. Lilburne is imprisoned once more in the Tower of London, along with four of his Leveller cohorts, including the brilliant polemicist Richard Overton. This time they’d attacked Cromwell head-on, accusing him of being a reactionary force roaming the land with secret police threatening all dissenters. “If our hearts were not over-charged with the sense of the present miseries and approaching dangers of the Nation, your small regard to our late serious apprehensions, would have kept us silent; but the misery, danger, and bondage threatened is so great, imminent, and apparent that whilst we have breath, and are not violently restrained, we cannot but speak, and even cry aloud, until you hear us, or God be pleased otherwise to relieve us.” The charge was treason.
His wife Elizabeth, herself a forceful agitator for peace and the rights of women, wrote an urgent pamphlet in his defense, titled A Petition of Women. The prose still resonates, perhaps more now than it has in 300 years. “Would you have us keep at home in our houses, when men of such faithfulness and integrity as the four prisoners, our friends in the Tower, are fetched out of their beds and forced from their houses by soldiers, to the affrighting and undoing of themselves, their wives, children, and families? Are not our husbands, our selves, our daughters and families, by the same rule as liable to the like unjust cruelties as they?” Elizabeth got 10,000 people to sign a petition on Lilburne’s behalf.
He was soon released. But arrested again within the year. This time for denouncing Cromwell’s genocidal raids on Ireland. But the jury refused to convict him and Cromwell had him banished from England. Lilburne spent a few months in Holland writing incendiary pamphlets before sneaking back into England. He was soon discovered and arrested on charges of treason once again. Again the jury refused to convict. But Cromwell refused to release him, shuttling Lilburne from the Tower, to the Mount Orgueil, a dank Norman castle in Guernsey, and finally to Dover castle. One of his guards described Lilburne as being tougher to handle than “ten Cavaliers.”
While locked in Dover castle, Lilburne fell under the spell of the Quakers, and became a radical pacifist, writing that he had finished with “carnal sword fightings and fleshly bustlings and contests.” His pen never stopped, though. The pamphlets continued to flow until his death in 1657.
Lilburne refused to be a martyr. He faced the beast, endured prisons and tortures that would give even an inmate at Guantanamo the chills, and remained defiant and upbeat. He lived the life of an escape artist, who could talk himself into and out of trouble, almost effortlessly. His mind ran in overdrive and so, apparently, did his mouth. His friend Harry Marten, the regicide, quipped: “If the world was emptied of all but John Lilburne, Lilburne would quarrel with John and John with Lilburne.” And so it should be.
I first encountered the writings of John Lilburne in 1981 during a series of lectures on Milton and the radicals of the English revolution delivered by the great British historian Christopher Hill, author of The World Turned Upside Down. Hill was stalking other game in those lectures, but his energetic asides on Lilburne and his band of Levellers pricked my interest. Here were puritans who detested imperial ambitions and believed in unfettered free speech and absolute equality. A far cry from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s band of vicious prudes, not to mention the neo-puritans, like Falwell and Robertson, then in the ascendancy.
Lilburne had long fallen out of favor with American historians and his writings were difficult to track down. I ended up devouring them at the stark library of Georgetown University (the meager library at American University, where I went to school, is a international scandal), overlooking the Potomac River and the gloom-stricken Lincoln Memorial. In those days, the chill shadow of Reagan loomed over the Republic and Lilburne’s polemics on freedom and repression, gripped me like an urgent voice from the grave.
It’s strange, but perhaps instructive of our current historical amnesia, that Lilburne’s reputation has fallen into such neglect in the US, for his anarchic style seems more in line with the rambunctious spirit that animated the American revolution than the dour pontifications of John Locke, whose writing gets all the press clips these days.
So why do I reprise the moldering life of John Lilburne now, at this perilous moment in the life of the Republic? Well, for starters, the forces that Lilburne confronted “with violent and bitter expressions” have coalesced once again (not that they ever really dissipated, mind you) and threaten to impose their preemptive will upon the living creatures of the world. What are these forces? Militarism, religious bigotry, official censorship, prosecutorial inquisitions and torture, imperial expansion, monopolists, land grabbers, misogynists and those who buy and sell the earth and humans, too. In short, the whole sick crew.
When you survey the wreckage of the American imperium, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed by darkness of the times, submerged in the remorseless riptide of blood and official violence. But even facing methods of torture and imprisonment that would unnerve an inmate of Guatanamo, Lilburne never surrendered to defeatism. His writing remains infused with radical purpose, a radiant call from across the centuries for collective resistance.
As you steel yourself to confront the new imperialists, ask yourself: what would Lilburne do?

Bible Truths

This was preached in a prominently black church. It takes less than a minute to read.

Genesis 47:13-27

I would love to give the Pastor
of this predominantly black church in
Virginia a hug and a
high five. This guy is obviously a leader.
Perhaps we should each decide
who our real
leader is.....It is amazing to see that very little has
changed in 4,000 years.

Good morning, brothers and sisters;
it's always a delight to see
the pews crowded on Sunday
morning and so eager to get into
God's Word. Turn with me
in your Bibles, if you will, to the 47th
chapter of Genesis, we'll
begin our reading at verse 13 and go
through verse 27.
Brother Ray, would you stand and
read that great passage for us?
Thank you for that fine reading,
Brother Ray... So we see that
economic hard times fell
upon Egypt and the people turned to
the government of Pharaoh
to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh
nationalized the grain
harvest and placed the grain in great storehouses
that he had built. So the
people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a
great tax increase, and
gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And
this went on until their
money ran out and they were hungry again.
So when they went to Pharaoh after
that, they brought their
livestock -their cattle,
their horses, their sheep, and their donkey -
to barter for grain and
verse 17 says that only took them through
the end of that year..
But the famine wasn't over was
it? So the next year the people
came before Pharaoh and
admitted they had nothing left except
their land and their own
lives. "There is nothing left in the sight
of my lord but our bodies
and our land. Why should we die before
your eyes, both we and
our land? Buy us and our land for food
and we with our land will
be servants to Pharaoh." So they
surrendered their homes,
their land, and their real estate to
Pharaoh's government and
then sold themselves into slavery
to him, in return for grain.
What can we learn from this, brothers
and sisters?
That turning to the government
instead of to God to be our provider
in hard times only leads
to slavery? Yes. That the only reason
government wants to be
our provider is to also become our master?
But look how that passage ends,
brothers and sisters! Thus Israel
settled in the land of
Egypt , in the land of Goshen .. And they gained
possessions in it and
were fruitful and multiplied greatly." God
provided for His people,
just as He always has! They didn't end up
giving all their possessions
to government, no, it says they gained
possessions! But I also
tell you a great truth today and an ominous
We see the same thing happening
today - the government today
wants to "share the
wealth" once again, to take it from us and redistribute
it back to us. It wants
to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken
control of education, and
ration it back to us, and when government
rations it, then government
decides who gets it, and how much, and
what kind. And if we go
along with it, and do it willingly, then we will
wind up no differently
than the people of Egypt did four thousand years
ago - as slaves to the
government and as slaves to our leaders.
What Mr. Obama's government is
doing now is no different from what
Pharaoh's government did
then and it will end the same. And a lot of
people like to call Mr.
Obama a "Messiah," don't they? Is he a Messiah?
A savior? Didn't the Egyptians
say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves,
"You have saved our
lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh"?
Well, I tell you this -
I know the Messiah; the
Messiah is a friend of mine;
and Mr. Obama is no Messiah!
No, brothers and sisters,
if Mr. Obama is a character
from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh.
Bow with me in prayer,
if you will...
Lord, You alone are worthy to be
served, and we rely on You, and You alone. We confess that the
is not our deliverer and never rightly will be. We read in the eighth
chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people
of what a ruler would do,
where it says "And in that day you will cry out
because of your king, whom
you have chosen for yourselves, but
the LORD will not answer
you in that day."
And Lord, we acknowledge
that day has come. We cry
out to you because of the ruler that we have
chosen for ourselves as
a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray
for revival and we pray
for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to
seek You and hands to serve You and protect Your people
from the atrocities of
Pharaoh's government.
In God We Trust...

1947 ~ 1948 Aliens breading wiht sheep...

The year was 1947. Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little more than 65 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO), with five aliens aboard, crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico .

This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations .

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948, nine months after the historic day, the following people were born:

Barrack Obama Sr.

Albert A. Gore, Jr.

Hillary Rodham

William J. Clinton

John F. Kerry

Howard Dean

Nancy Pelosi

Dianne Feinstein

Charles E. Schumer

Barbara Boxer

Joe Biden

This is the obvious consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses

I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It certainly did for me.

And now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens.

Why our military can''t win a war...

If nothing else, by reading this you will now know why the military is so screwed up today. Military leadership has been subjugated by this president to be nothing more than political hacks and yes men. God help us all.

Air Force expert on Benghazi

"Hands" Handley is a well-respected USAF fighter pilot. Here is his short resume of accomplishments.

Colonel Phil "Hands" Handley is credited with the highest speed air- to-air gun kill in the history of aerial combat. He flew operationally for all but 11 months of a 26-year career, in aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, F-15 Eagle, and the C-130A Hercules. Additionally, he flew 275 combat missions during two tours in Southeast Asia in the F- 4D and F-4E. His awards include 21 Air Medals, 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Silver Star.

Here is what Col. Handley wrote in response to Panetta and Dempsey's claims there was no time to send help to Benghazi .


Betrayal in Benghazi
Phil "Hands" Handley Colonel, USAF (Ret.)

The combat code of the US Military is that we don't abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In US Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don't run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying.

Among America 's fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds.

The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-SEALs who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of dereliction-of-duty.

Additionally, the patently absurd cover-up scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility.

It has been over eight months since the attack on our compound in Benghazi . The White House strategy, with the aid of a "lap dog" press has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming.

The recent testimonies of the three "whistle blowers" have reopened the subject and hopefully will lead to exposure and disgrace of those responsible for this embarrassing debacle. It would appear that the most recent firewall which the Administration is counting on is the contention "that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference" mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft.

This is simply BS, regardless how many supposed "experts" the Administration trot out to make such an assertion.

The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don't just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing.

The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base , Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based.

Consider the following scenario (all times Benghazi local): When Hicks in Tripoli receives a call at 9:40 PM from Ambassador Stevens informing him "Greg, we are under attack!" (his last words), Hicks immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing "Emergency Response Plan."

At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to "stand down". By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various "Command and Control Agencies" so everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on.

At 11:30 PM Woods, Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a mortar direct hit at 4:00 AM.

So nothing could have been done, eh? Nonsense. If one assumes that tanker support really "was not available" what about this:

When at 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets.

By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use.

The jets depart Sigonella at 1:10 AM with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team.

Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, a few well placed strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick.

Were the F-16s fuel state insufficient to return to Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport , only one-half hour away.

As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act -- screw them. It is time our "leadership" get its priorities straight and put America 's interests first.

The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with "72 virgins" and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless POS terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to "tug" on Superman's cape.

Of course all this depends upon a Commander In Chief more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm's way than getting his crew rested for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. It also depends upon a Secretary of State who actually understood "What difference did it make?", and a Secretary of Defense who was watching the feed from the drone and understood what the attack consisted of instead of making an immediate response that "One of the military tenants is that you don't commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation."

YGBSM! ( You Gotta Be Shittin' Me)

Ultimately it comes down to the question of who gave that order to stand down? Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the United States of America deserve leadership that really does "have their back" when the chips are down.
