9/11 Apathy, Doubt, and Disbelief

Twin Towers

This morning I watched a video called Loose Change, 2nd edition, a documentary exposing the many fallacies and cover-ups of the government’s official 9/11 report. It is 1.5 hours long, and WELL worth the watch.

I emailed the link to the video to a few friends and acquaintances. Later in the day, I received a reply from one person I had sent it to, asking a few questions. Their email is as follows, and I would like to address the questions he asks.

Connor,

Thank you. I watched the entire movie. Unbelievable. They introduced some new material I had not seen since Loose Change. How can we get the word out? Why are politicians from both parties ignoring it? And, why does Utah give Bush the highest approval ratings?

How can we get the word out?

I think it is first more important to answer the question: “Why should we get the word out?” Once we understand the need, we can then form a strategy for the “how”. Why should we get the word out? Why should we care if 9/11 really was a government job? What good does it do me to know or care about that?

I think the best way to answer these questions is with D&C 88:78-81:

Teach ye diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand;
Of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, things which must shortly come to pass; things which are at home, things which are abroad; the wars and the perplexities of the nations, and the judgments which are on the land; and a knowledge also of countries and of kingdoms
That ye may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you, and the mission with which I have commissioned you.
Behold, I sent you out to testify and warn the people, and it becometh every man who hath been warned to warn his neighbor.

We have been commanded by modern revelation to study history and current events, both with an effort of understanding and discerning “things which must shortly come to pass”. I would argue that we must seek to learn the correct history of things, not the one the government would like us to blindly accept. We are also commanded to study things about our own country, other countries, wars, perplexities of the nations, judgments on the land… get the drift?

But why? “That [we] may be prepared in all things”. We know that “if [we] are prepared [we] shall not fear” (D&C 38:30).

But what is the call to action? What are we to do when we have discovered a new truth, or learned something of value? He who hath been warned must warn his neighbor. Revealed truths, both spiritual and temporal, were never intended to be bottled up in the dark abyss of one’s own mind. They are to be shared, taught, and even shouted from the rooftops.

That is why I am as political as I am. I don’t find it fun. I find it downright frustrating. Sometimes my blood boils when I learn of things the government has done, or is currently doing. But it’s not enough to just read it in a book, study and research it, and then not talk about it. Revelation says that I must warn my neighbor.

It is “impossible for a man to be saved in ignorance” (D&C 131:6). I would argue that being “saved” refers just as much to our spiritual salvation as it does to our temporal salvation. If I had the desire, I could list the numerous ways the neocon movement plans to infringe upon our liberties in the future and hinder our temporal salvation, but I will leave that to the inquiring mind to research or inquire. But we cannot be saved in ignorance. We must not remain apathetic to these issues. The sad fact is that the majority of people who read the first few paragraphs of this post probably were bored, disinterested, or (dare I say it?) apathetic, and declined to read on. That is a big problem.

If you feel you are ignorant or uninformed in this area, please, please watch Loose Change, 2nd edition. It is an excellent documentary that will enlighten you and raise additional questions for your pondering and research.

I hope that the above scriptures illustrate the importance of why we need to get the word out. So now we must figure out how.

The best way, I feel, is to simiply warn your neighbor. Email those you know, those you work with, those you care about, and explain to them what you’ve learned. Send them the link to the Loose Change video.

It is somewhat disconcerting that so many people write off so-called conspiracy “theories” as an irksome habit of UFO believers, drug users, and hippies. That is not the case anymore. There is a large community seeking to expose the 9/11 myth and inform people. Yet the average person will pay no attention to such “theories”, seeking to distance themselves from it as an LDS person would to anti-mormon literature. This must stop. We must inform people, openly discuss and debate the topic, and show how weak and fallacious the official 9/11 story really is.

Why are politicians from both parties ignoring it?

I think this question is relatively easy to answer. The short answer is that questioning the official story has become political suicide. So, everybody falls in line behind Bush’s doctrine, rank and file, like lemmings marching to their demise.

And example to demonstrate how this political suicide takes effect is from Dr. Bob Bowman. Bowman was a panelist at the recent American Scholars Symposium: 9/11 and The Neo-Con Agenda. He is running for Congress in District 15 of Florida as a democrat. During the symposium, Bowman discussed how his opponent had openly ridiculed him in the media for harboring such beliefs towards the 9/11 events. His opponent was essentially trying to portray his opponent as a liberal wacko and crazy conspiracy theorist that could not be trusted in office.

Indeed, even President Bush, at his address to the United Nations two months after 9/11, said:

Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th, malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves, away from the guilty.

It is amazing how politicians will attempt to discredit and stigmatize the efforts and beliefs of those who oppose them, all in an attempt to secure their own power and persuade people to believe what they say, rather than what their opponent says. Bush made use of a very smart political tactic when offering this statement, effectively scorning all conspiracy “theories”.

And, why does Utah give Bush the highest approval ratings?

Behold, verily I say unto you, that there are many spirits which are false spirits, which have gone forth in the earth, deceiving the world.
And also Satan hath sought to deceive you, that he might overthrow you.
But wo unto them that are deceivers and hypocrites, for, thus saith the Lord, I will bring them to judgment.
Behold, verily I say unto you, there are hypocrites among you, who have deceived some, which has given the adversary power; but behold such shall be reclaimed; (D&C 50:2-3,6-7)

Bush and his associates aren’t going to come out and admit that this was a cover up. They’re not going to talk about all the other things going on in our government that are and will be suppressing our liberties. Their tactics: Deceive. Shift blame. Sleight of hand. Point fingers. Shift blame.

Utah is the most conservative state. Appealing to his party’s largest base, of course Bush is going to play the strong, perseverant hero seeking to invoke God’s name in an effort to erradicate terrorism. Utahns then eat up his words, which reminds me a lot of the abundant examples in the Book of Mormon when somebody in power would use flattery to sway his people, and get them to follow along in his evil plans.

I’m curious how many people have read this entire post. I’m curious how many people care about this kind of thing? Does it matter if 9/11 was a conspiracy? OF COURSE it does. Wake up and smell the thermate.

You’ve been warned. Now, warn your neighbor.

    Extremely interesting. I read through the whole post and have some questions of my own now. However, I am highly skeptical. Also, I have to go to church now and won’t be able to check into this further for another few hours. I’ll get back to you on this.

    Skepticism is the best way to approach such a topic as this. If you’re not an intial skeptic, you’ll end up like one of the UFO monkeys that believe anything that is anti-government. Having initial skepticism will lead to a thorough analysis of the facts available, and will allow you to make an objective decision regarding your belief towards this stuff. I was a skeptic, and still am, but when presented with incontrovertible evidence I have a hard time denying it.

    Ultimately, however, one must follow the spirit. The Holy Ghost will be the one to teach you of all things, and will guide you in the journey to understand things “as they really are”.

    I’ve already left a comment on your other post about Steve Jones. The guy is bunk and his BofM inspired conspiracy theories have been long debunked. He just wants attention now that his bunk cold-fusion has turned into a mere memory.

    Yes. I used bunk three times.

    I am aware of your other comment, and I thought that rather than call you ignorant like you do so often to yours truly, I’d let it pass. Your statements in the other comment are all false:

    -Jones needs to stop calling his paper ‘peer-reviewed.’

    His paper has undergone other peer review as well. I’m sorry it doesn’t match up with your personal definition of being peer-reviewed. Is the Book of Mormon less valid and true because it has not been peer-reviewed? A statement, theory, or claim can only be discredited thorougly by a refutation of that which it claims to be true. Simply saying that other professionals don’t agree hardly disproves the claims.

    -Jones’ paper can hardly be called good research, and definitely not his own research. He merely cut and pasted different unscientific speculations that he found online. He is merely person with a Ph.D. attached to the end of his name.

    Great attempt at ad hominem. I am amazed at how well you know him and his research. Perhaps you could write his biography?

    —Jones claims that the towers should have collapsed at an angle. Anybody with a basic knowledge of physics should quickly realize that with a building as tall as the WTC buildings, a relatively small damage would not displace the center of gravity enough to cause an angular fall. His examples of tipping buildings he provides are very problematic because they are smaller buildings which have a greater displacement of a center of gravity due to damage.

    Apparently you did not read closely enough what Jones claimed. If you look at one of the pictures of the building as it starts to fall, there are several floors of the top in one big junk, that are starting to fall on the intact tower below. This huge block is at an angle. If that block, at an angle, falls on the mass below, its center of gravity would be displaced, causing it to fall off towards the side of the building – not explode into dust and power miraculously. I suppose that “anybody with a basic knowledge of physics should quickly realize that”.

    —Jones asks why the Madrid building failed to collapse due to fire. He fails to answer that it was because the Madrid building had a concrete infrastructure (as opposed to the WTC buildings which had a steel infrastructure)

    Ummm.. that proves his point. That was his point. The steel used has a much higher melting and burning temperature than concrete. So if fire didn’t make concrete crumble and collapse, how would a fire purportedly cause steel to melt and collapse?

    —Jones’ supposed science relies on the melting point of steel. He is apparently too stupid to realize that a steel infrastructure does not need to melt to cause a building to collapse. It only needs to be weakened by a much lower temperature.

    More ad hominem. Awesome. He says in his paper exactly what temperatures would be needed, and for how long of a time, in order to weaken the steel sufficiently for a potential collapse. Even the NIST reports admitted that the jet fuel burned away within minutes.. random fires in the building would not cause a collapse within such a short time as did happen on 9/11. So much for Jones’ “supposed science”. Contrary to your belief, I don’t find Jones “too stupid to realize” what he’s talking about.

    —Squibs. Jones doesn’t realize that a collapsing building creates a build up of air pressure which will cause the air to shoot out the side. Much like an accordian with a hole in its side.

    Squibs. I can see glass shattering, things flying out of the windows, but a definite squib being the result of a collapse, far beneath the point of current impact? I think you’re stretching way too far on this one.

    —Jones claims the building fell at (near) free fall speeds. He failed to notice that debris outside the buildings fell much faster. Hmmm… how could that be?

    Ah, something else Jones “failed to notice”. Try watching the video again, this time with a stopwatch.

    What it all comes down to is that Jones is driven by two things. 1 – Religious motivation. 2 – He needs media attention again now that his cold fusion media attention days are over.

    I am amazed at how you will use ad hominem and criticism for Jones, someone with whom you disagree, but when somebody does so with Al Gore and his global warming claims, you readily come to the defense. Rather than trying to label Jones as a religious nutcase hoping for media attention, try to open your mind, think about his actual claims, and if you so choose, refute them in a gentlemanly manner.

    His paper has undergone other peer review as well.

    After his UVSC presentation, Jones was asked by a friend of mine who is more than happy to believe in conspiracy theories about Jones’s claim of his paper being peer-reviewed. Jones admitted that his peers were Griffin and others without scientific training.

    I’m sorry it doesn’t match up with your personal definition of being peer-reviewed.

    This is not my ‘personal definition.’ The peer-review I advocated in my other comment is the standard definition of peer-review in academia. If Jones wants to pretend he is playing with big boy academia, he’s gotta play the rules.

    Is the Book of Mormon less valid and true because it has not been peer-reviewed?

    Like Jones, if it wants to make certain claims of being peer-reviewed, then yes. The BofM is not a scholarly work, but a religious text, so it’s a moot issue.

    Simply saying that other professionals don’t agree hardly disproves the claims.

    But disproving his ridiculous claims, as other professionals have does.

    Great attempt at ad hominem. I am amazed at how well you know him and his research.

    It’s not an ad hominem. I’m attacking his claims of his paper being his own research. ALL of his claims and supposed science were available online long before his paper ever existed. Jones provided nothing new. He is merely a Ph.D. attached to others’ bogus claims.

    Apparently you did not read closely enough what Jones claimed. If you look at one of the pictures of the building as it starts to fall, there are several floors of the top in one big junk, that are starting to fall on the intact tower below. This huge block is at an angle. If that block, at an angle, falls on the mass below, its center of gravity would be displaced, causing it to fall off towards the side of the building – not explode into dust and power miraculously. I suppose that “anybody with a basic knowledge of physics should quickly realize that”.

    No. You are wrong. It’s not enough to displace the center of gravity. The building was too tall.

    Ummm.. that proves his point. That was his point. The steel used has a much higher melting and burning temperature than concrete. So if fire didn’t make concrete crumble and collapse, how would a fire purportedly cause steel to melt and collapse?

    That wasn’t his point. Jones was ignorantly trying to claim that fire could not cause a building to collapse. He tried to point make the claim that the Madrid building should have collapsed due to fire, as have many many other ignorant conspiracy theorists. They all fail to recognize that the Madrid building was build with a concrete infrastructure to avoid collapse that could be caused by the weakened (THE STEEL DOES NOT NEED TO MELT!) of a building with a steel infrastucture.

    More ad hominem. Awesome. He says in his paper exactly what temperatures would be needed, and for how long of a time, in order to weaken the steel sufficiently for a potential collapse. Even the NIST reports admitted that the jet fuel burned away within minutes.. random fires in the building would not cause a collapse within such a short time as did happen on 9/11. So much for Jones’ “supposed science”. Contrary to your belief, I don’t find Jones “too stupid to realize” what he’s talking about.

    Again, I am describing Jones’s stupid claim, and not discounting his argument because of Jones’s stupidity. It is not an ad hominem. You sure like to throw out the ad hominem cry, but apparently don’t know what it means. As you have already asserted, Jones argument centers around the melting point of steel. The steel does not need to melt. Furthermore, while the jet fuel would burn out quickly, other materials would and did cause the fire to get hot enough and long enough to weaken the infrastructure. Even more, the fire would have been located toward the inside of the building where the central infrastructure was located, which is why people near the outside of the building were not as affected by the heat.

    Squibs. I can see glass shattering, things flying out of the windows, but a definite squib being the result of a collapse, far beneath the point of current impact? I think you’re stretching way too far on this one.

    Air pressure from a collapsing building will shatter windows and push air outward. It doesn’t have to be at the point of impact because the air pressure from the collapsing structure will build up throughout the building. The supposed squibs also eject after the building has started to collapse. Squibs do not occur near the base of the building where demolition explosions would occur. Squibs do not occur at the site of initial impact either, because the damage created enough open space for the air pressure to eject without the squib-like ejections.

    Ah, something else Jones “failed to notice”. Try watching the video again, this time with a stopwatch.

    Watch the videos. Debris outside the building falls much faster than the building itself. Still images are available which clealrly show that this is the case. If the building is falling slower than free falling material, then the building is not falling at free-fall speads. As far as the pancaking goes, much actual physics and math have been done to show that the buildings collapse would not need to be as slow as Jones pretends it would have been. This happens for two reasons. 1 the pancaking isn’t as big of an issue as Jones wants it to be. 2 when the central infrastructure of the building failed, it caused the building to collapse from the center and pull itself inward, this caused a more of a total structural failure than a level by level failure. It also increased its downward pull even further eliminating the possibility of a slanted collapse.

    I am amazed at how you will use ad hominem and criticism for Jones,

    I have not used Jones’ stupidity to doubt his claims, rather i used the stupidity of Jones’ claims to doubt his intelligence. Big difference.

    but when somebody does so with Al Gore and his global warming claims, you readily come to the defense.

    I doubted global warming for years. However, I decided to actually look into it and discovered there was much truth to it. Gore really had nothing to do with it.

    Rather than trying to label Jones as a religious nutcase hoping for media attention, try to open your mind, think about his actual claims, and if you so choose, refute them in a gentlemanly manner.

    When i first read his paper in November, I bought into some of his claims. After hearing him speak at UVSC a few months later, something didn’t seem right. With all the science he was claiming to use, he actually used very little science. I read his revision of his paper and found that there still wasn’t much science. I decided to do some research and spent a week or so reading into all the claims. I quickly discovered that Jones was merely rehashing others’ silly conspiracy theory junk and sticking his Ph.D. on it. I found that every one of his claims had been adequate refuted, yet he did not acknowlegde or refute a single criticism that had been available for a couple years.

    I do not like George Bush. I think he’s the worst and possibly most evil president to sit in the White House over the last few decades. I’m thoroughly convinced that Bush and his neo-conservative cabinet took advantage of the atrocities of 9/11 and utilized that fear to implement the Bush/Wolfowitz doctrine and begin an attack on Iraq. Bush, however, did not detonate the WTC towers to cause 9/11. Perhaps Bush was evil enough to turn a blind eye to Al Qaida and allow the attacks to occur. There were no bombs. Perhaps Jones is a good astro-physicist. Griffin is a great process theologian. They need to stick to what they are good at, and let the adults handle these other issues.

    I watched the video. I must say I was very surprised with the evidence presented and the eye-witness accounts. But still I wonder what a video might look like that would attempt to debunk all this. Although I haven’t read the entire article yet, I know Popular Mechanics tries to debunk the conspiracy theories.

    I’m still open to this one. It just seems that if it were all masterminded as the video suggests, EVERYONE involved would have to be fully in on it. I just can’t imagine so many people being willing to do such a thing to their own country.

    So all in all, I’m still up in the air on this one.

    Awake To Your Awful Situation
    (Ether 8:23)

    “Great are the promises concerning this land of America. We are told unequivocally that it “is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ” (Ether 2:12). This is the crux of the entire matter—obedience to the commandments of God. I do not know what the future holds. I do not wish to sound negative, but I wish to remind you of the warnings of scripture and the teachings of the prophets which we have had constantly before us.” (Discourses of Gordon B. Hinckley, vol. 2, p. 109)

    “Satan is making war against…the very foundations upon which society, government, and religion rest… he plans to destroy freedom—economic, political, and religious, and to set up in place thereof the greatest, most widespread and most complete tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods…he comes as a thief in the night; he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Without their knowing it, the people are being urged down paths that lead only to destruction…” (First Presidency Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., David O. McKay, Conference Report, October 1942, p. 14)

    “I will tell you in the name of the Lord that a secret band will sap the life of this nation.” Apostle of the Church, Moses Thatcher, 1882 (Richard Vetterli, Constitution by a Thread, p.154)

    “It is the devils desire that the Lords priesthood stay asleep while the strings of tyranny gradually and quietly entangle us until, like Gulliver, we awake too late and find that while we could have broken each string separately as it was put upon us, our sleepiness permitted enough strings to bind us to make a rope to enslave us.”

    “For years we have heard of the role the elders could play in saving the Constitution from total destruction. But how can the elders be expected to save it if they have not studied it and are not sure if it is being destroyed or what is destroying it”? (Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.314)

    God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall run not to individuals, that is, to government officials… the only allegiance we owe as citizens or denizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God Himself set up.
    (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., The Improvement Era, 1940, 43:444; Prophets Principles and National Survival)

    “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights…confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism—free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power….our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further our confidence may go…in question of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
    (Thomas Jefferson, Draft of Kentucky Resolutions of 1798; Works 9: 470-471)

    It is imperative that American citizens become alerted and informed regarding the threat to our welfare, happiness and freedom. No American is worthy of citizenship in this great land who refuses to take an active interest in these matters. (Ezra T. Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.31)

    We have lost interest in the freedom of God’s children—in the basic concepts that have made this country. The hour is late. God help us wake up and act before it is too late.
    –Ezra Taft Benson

    My People are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.
    Hosea 4:6

    Moroni saw our day and warned of secret combinations, secret societies which utilize oaths, esoteric pacts…”to help such as sought power to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie and to commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms.” (Ether 8:16) Further, Moroni explains: “And it came to pass that they formed secret combinations, even as they of old; which combinations is most abominable and wicked above all, in the site of God.” (18)

    Moroni tells us that secret combinations (secret societies)…”are had among all people.” Referring to our day indicating they may cause the fall of the United States. The Book of Mormon woefully details the destruction of the Nephite nation, declaring…”they (secret combinations) have caused the destruction of this people (Jaredites) of who I am speaking, and also the people of Nephi,” (20).

    “…Suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain- and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you…”(23).

    The Prophet Joseph Smith spoke of secret combinations and corruption in our government in the latter days. Eliza R. Snow, present with the Prophet Joseph Smith stated, “I heard the prophet say, ‘The time will come when the government of these United States will be so nearly overthrown through it’s corruption, that the Constitution will hang as it were by a single hair…’”(Ensign, June 1976, p 64-65).

    D. Michael Stewart, “I Have a Question,” in the same Ensign article, June 1976, p 64-65, stated, “Brethren and sisters, let me say in closing that we have it of record, that the prophet Joseph Smith said the time would come when, through secret organizations taking the law into their own hands, not being governed by law or by due process of law, but becoming a law unto themselves, when, by those disintegrating activities, the Constitution of the United States would be so torn and rent asunder, and life and property and peace and security would be held of so little value, that the Constitution would, as it were, hang by a thread…”

    Likewise, just prior to his martyrdom, the prophet warned his people and the nation in 1844 to continually beware of the much concentration of power in the federal government. He feared that an expanding federal bureaucracy would eventually deprive the citizens of [their] free agency. He feared the demise of individual free agency through the rolling tide of bureaucracy with its inevitable controls. Moreover, he was opposed to spending on large scale…and warned the people against those ‘galvanic cronies’ in politics that can do nothing but draw money from the treasury.” (Richard Vetterli, The Constitution by a Thread, p. 185)

    The Prophet also “ warned against those individuals who would hope to sell political schemes which had as a result the diminution of individual liberty and free agency—who bring about stretches of power or restrictions of rights which too often appear as acts of legislation to pave the way to some political scheme destitute of intrinsic merit as a wolfs heart is of the milk of human kindness…federal government paternalism…expanding bureaucratic machinery, controls, laws, regulations; concentration of power in the executive, stifling taxes, circumvention of the constitution, indebtedness, inflation, continued devaluation of the dollar.”(p.187)

    Now, Moroni in his lamenting appeal to us in the latter days apocalyptically illustrates our…”overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be”(Ether 8:23). Thereafter, in verse 24 of Ether he tells us with all soberness:

    Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you, or woe be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it. For it cometh to pass that whosoever buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil…

    Ezra Taft Benson, in his book, “An Enemy Hath Done This”, says, “At this particular moment in history, the United States Constitution is definitely threatened and every citizen should know about it. The warning of this hour should resound through the corridors every American institution…” (p.39). Moreover, he states, “the crisis we now face is the most serious, the most dangerous, in the history of our country. Each of us must diligently employ our influence and efforts.”(p.9). Was this crisis ever mitigated? There is ample evidence to show it drastically increased. In the October General Conference of 1988, President Ezra Taft Benson made a very solemn statement regarding the take over of our society by secret organizations, he said:

    I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every phase of our society. It is more highly organized, cleverly disguised and powerfully promoted than over before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedoms of all lands, nations and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.

    Our prophet testified to us and said unequivocally that there are some who are attempting to take our freedoms and increase “their evil influence and control”. This therefore, means the secret combination already had some control over us and the rest of mankind.

    Ezra T. Benson refers to these secret combinations and their reference to a “New Order” in his book “The Red Carpet”. He details the elitist notion that…the coming of totalitarianism is inevitable and he spoke of those who referred to the UN as “the nucleus of a future world order.”
    Further, he mentions the Dan Smoot Report, 19 Feb1962, which shows that …”this ‘new order’ is virtually identical with the ‘new order’ which Karl Marx; father of communism, said would rise out of the ashes of the capitalist system.”(pp.183-86, 196).

    Also, Benson discusses the words of Dr. Schwartz from his book, “You Can Trust The Communists,” to help us more fully comprehend their philosophy. He states, “The Communists believe they have a destiny. Their destiny is to create a new world and regenerate mankind. To do this they must conquer the world, shatter the capitalist system, and, by communist dictatorship, establish the regenerative environment of socialism.” He then helps us realize that the ‘lie’ is sacred to them. He shows that …”the communists invariably tell the ‘truth’ but it is the Marxist-Leninist ‘truth’…In fact, it is not possible for a communist to lie in the interest of communism, it is the truth”(Ezra T. Benson, The Red Carpet, p. 31)

    In the April 1974 issue of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) journal, “Foreign Affairs” (p. 558) Richard Gardner stated, “that the New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like great booming, buzzing, confusion…but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old fashion frontal assault. (Gary Kah, En Route To Global Occupation, p. 33)

    The same year President Benson made his General Conference address, regarding secret combinations, Mikhail Gorbachev spoke of a “New World Order.” He was the first contemporary world leader to speak in such terms. He did this nearly two years before George Bush made his statement. In an historic address to the United Nations on December 7, 1988, the Soviet leader made this dogmatic and chilling proclamation: “Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a New World Order.” Too in his Book, “The August Coup”, 1991, Gorbachev tells how the…”great Eurasian democracy will become one of the bulwarks of the new world or its security and of the rapprochement (convergence) of two continents in building a just world order. (Mikhail Gorbachev, The August Coup, Harper Collins, p.66)

    Of course this is to be facilitated via the United Nations, which is dominated by anti-theistic ideas and dictatorial ambitions, but for the good of mankind—so they want us to believe.

    Just prior to leaving Helsinki, Finland, early in September 1990 to discuss the Persian Gulf crisis at his summit meeting with Gorbachev, President Bush expressed the hope that “the foundation for the ‘New World Order’ would be laid in Helsinki,” and that it would come by way of the U.N.

    Any serious student of the United Nations would realize that it was created by Communists and Communist supporters. Benson informs us that …”Communist agent Alger Hiss, who was the principal architect of the godless United Nations…”was also the Secretary of Agriculture prior to Ezra Taft Benson taking over. (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.65) Cleon Skousen, in his book, The Naked Communist, written at the behest of the late prophet David O. McKay, says…”Anyone familiar with the Communist Constitution of Russia will recognize in the United Nations Charter a similar format. It is characterized by a fervent declaration of democratic principles which are sound and desirable; this is then followed by a constitutional restriction or procedural limitation which completely nullifies the principles just announced….For example, the Russian Constitution provides for…freedom of the press…and wiped out by the provision that all writings must be ‘in the interest of the workers.’”(Cleon Skousen, The Naked Communist, p.172)

    In any event, reverting back to the rhetoric about the New World Order and its machinations for the good of all mankind, the two dominate world leaders announce the decrees for humanity.

    At the news conference with Gorbachev following their landmark meeting, President Bush proclaimed optimistically, “If the nations of the world, acting together, continue as they have been; we will set in place the cornerstone of an international order more peaceful than any we have known.”

    This notion of an “international order more peaceful” is the euphonious demagoguery that has been sold from time immemorial. This is the ploy designed by the devil to bring about the destruction of Christianity and the freewill of mankind. He made an attempt at this same demagogy in the pre-existence, which is to deprive us of our agency in return for the false promise of peace, prosperity, no war, no strife, no blood shed, a wonderful life. Such is the false utopianism pandered about by Marx and his ilk and to achieve it is based upon expediency or whatever Machiavellian device necessary.

    During the Clinton Administration New World Order Socialists publicity appeared. In the U.S. House of Representatives the powerful once popular lobby called the Progressive Caucus now began openly espousing the principles of socialism. Too, they have signed onto the agenda of the Democratic Socialists of America. In his acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention Clinton mentions a professor who espouses freedom destroying ideas. Clinton said the man was his mentor and was none other than Carroll Quigley, Harvard, Princeton and Georgetown professor emeritus. According to this elitist professor, the power of a certain group of bankers is colossal. Quigley, who admitted being an insider and confidant of this elite secret-society, said:

    This network which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists as any other group, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. Their aim is nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. The system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. (Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, New York: The McMillan Co., 1966, p 950)

    Benson mentions this…”Feudal System of the Dark Ages” and then declares, “We must ever keep in our mind on the inspired words of Thomas Jefferson, as found in the Declaration of Independence:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.129; Jerreld L. Newquist, .Prophets, Principles and National Survival, p. 519)

    That Quigley refers to everything opposed to what our Founding Fathers wrote about for our good, is an indictment on him and all those involved with their work to seek…”power to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie and commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms.”(Ether 8:16)

    Quigley demonstrates that our nation has with in it a group of elitists colluding with those who espouse hatred for religion, God and freedom. Furthermore, he denotes the use of great financial wealth to achieve more power, gain for the sole purpose of controlling various institutions of the world. These are the same forces history has shown, supplied Hitler with financial means to stir the world into a cauldron of blood.

    Prescott Bush, Grandfather of George W., of Brown Brothers, Harriman Banking, Rockefellers with Standard Oil and their banking entities along with other American corporations, had sought for money making ventures with the Nazi regime and even helped finance it. They were found out and were penalized for their complicity with the evil dictator, Adolf Hitler. Here is an example of some of their doings:

    In August 1942, the property of the Hamburg-Amerika line, for many years partly owned by the Harriman and Walker-controlled American ship and commerce Corporation, was seized under the Trading with the Enemy Act. On October 20, the alien property custodian seized the assets of the Union Banking Corporation. Eight days later, with UBCs books in hand, the government acted against two affiliates, the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Equipment Corporation. In November, the government seized the assets of the last major entity connected to Harriman, Walker, and Bush—the Silesian-American Corporation. (Kevin Phillips, American Dynasty, Penguin Books, 2004, p.39)

    Phillips explains that the “great surprise is that none of it seem to matter much over the next decade or so,” regarding the support of Strong Man Hitler. Democrat Arevell Harriman would not be stopped from becoming federal mutual security administrator in 1951 or winning election as governor of New York in 1954…Nor would Republican Prescott Bush and his presidential descendents be hurt in any of their future elections.” (p.39)

    —-

    There is significant evidence that subversion with in our own boarders is extant and being pushed by those with enormous wealth, the international bankers and others. The book of Ether tells us these secret combinations …”seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries…” (Ether 8:24).
    “The United Nations”, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller told an audience at Harvard University, ‘has not been able–nor can it be able–to shape a new world order which events so compellingly demand.’… The new world order that will answer economic, military, and political problems, he said, ‘urgently requires, I believe, that the United States take the leadership among all free peoples to make the underlying concepts and aspirations of national sovereignty truly meaningful through the federal approach.’”
    Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York, in an article entitled “Rockefeller Bids Free Lands Unite: Calls at Harvard for Drive to Build New World Order” — New York Times (February 1962)
    What must be for this New World Order to come into play? The American people have to give up their God inspired Constitution, their liberty. This is done through indoctrination, propaganda and deception. As such The Reece Committee found the CFR overwhelmingly propagandizes the globalist concept. (Kah, En Route to Global Occupation, p.31)

    Rear Admiral Chester Ward, a former Council on Foreign Relations member for sixteen years, warned the American people of the organizations intentions.

    The most powerful clique in these elitist groups [has] one objective in common—they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States.
    A second clique of international members in the CFR …comprises the Wall Street international bankers and their key agents.
    Primarily, they want the world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government. (William E. Dunham, Correction, Please, The Review of the News, April 9, 1980, pp. 37-38)

    In 1976 Democratic Presidential Candidate Jimmy Carter exclaimed, “We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics. In 1982, Benjamin Crème, New Age leader, stated from “The Humanist Manifesto”, “What is the plan? It includes the installation of a new world government and new world religion under Maitreia.” (Pat Robertson, The New World Order, p.6)

    To some the new world order will bring in an era of never before seen peace and harmony. Justice and prosperity will also abound. This has been the dreams of utopianism all through the ages. Synonymous with the thinking of the late superstar John Lennon, whose lyrics to the song “Imagine” has been sung without a real understanding by hundreds of millions of teary eyed admirers the world over.

    Lennon’s plaintiff cry to those listening is to …”imagine a time when there were ‘no countries’, ‘no religion’, ‘no heaven,’ ‘no hell’, ‘no possessions’, everyone ‘living for today’ and the world ‘as one’”. The former musicians dream state would be a world of hedonism—without religious faith, national identity or sovereignty, or without anything to fight for, without private property, our values, our faith and our freedom. (p.4)

    Without coincidence this very song was sung by British singer Peter Gabriel–during the opening ceremonies of the 2006 winter Olympics at Torino Italy. With a song like that to acclimate us more for this Globalization concept, we too receive a constant fusillade of other propaganda and fiery darts from this cabal.

    Impetus for us to walk into the New World Order is from the propaganda that our country is on the verge of being destroyed by an outside antagonist. Searching prophecy one will find this is a red herring, a diversion from the truth. The prophets tell us from the days of The Book of Mormon to Joseph Smith to David O. McKay and Ezra Taft Benson to our leaders today, that our Constitutional form of government will be threaten by enemies from within and it’s destruction will take place if we let secret combinations get above us. James Madison, a man we venerate, once said, “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” It is easy for one to follow what is popular and adhere to the platitudes of the day. James Madison may not have been referring to our situation however it is an arduous task to ignore the monumental evidence. Too, to think upon what our Prophet said in 1988, that… “a secret combination is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world”, speaks volumes. (Benson, 1988 October General Conference)

    That our nation would not be destroyed by outside enemies but facilitated by our apathy pertaining to secret societies, President Benson says, “I don’t believe the greatest threat to our future is from bombs or missiles. I do not think our civilization will die that way I think it will die when we no longer care.” (Ezra T. Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.6) Too, President David O. McKay …”has warned us time and time again that there is present in our own United States, influences the avowed object of which is to sow discord and contention among men with a view of undermining, weakening, if not entirely destroying our constitutional form of government…it is the enemy from within that is most menacing, especially when it threatens to disintegrate our established form of government” (p.50).

    Americans are being polarized more than ever. Understanding the old axiom, “together we stand, divided we fall”, helps us realize in part what President McKay meant when declaring …”discord and contention” is a means to undermine and weaken this great country. Democrats are pitted against Republicans, conservative verses liberal and vice versa and this too keep us off the mark. These are the various tactics used along with many others. Subversion from within is what has been going on for quite some time, but “they” are very clever in keeping the majority of the masses from coming together to stop their sinister plan.

    John L. McClellan, former U.S. Senator, in writing the forward of Ezra Taft Bensons book “An Enemy Hath Done This,” had this to say:

    If we lose our freedom, if our nation is destroyed, it will be because of internal forces of fiscal irresponsibility, subversion, and lawlessness, rather than by conquest or assault from any enemy without. These internal forces are today challenging and weakening the vitality, stamina, and tenacity of our national will and resolve.

    The problems thrown at us are as the Book of Mormon warns, by way of secret agreements or combinations, organized methods to subjugate mankind. Today we learn of well funded secret societies, the banking conglomerates and their frequent meetings such as the annual Bilderberger junta which gets no mainstream media coverage. One can bet most people have never heard of this group. Nevertheless, this junta meets yearly to discuss the evolution of nations to a single world entity. As an example, Henry Kissinger, member of this elitist faction, at a Bilderberger meeting in Evian, France, May 21 1992, regarding the Los Angeles riots, discussed means to dupe Americans into relinquishing their sovereignty for globalism, stated:

    Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.

    Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting. It is important to note that everybody invited to these meetings are not always in total agreement with the aims of the World Integrationist or Globalist.
    David Rockefeller, who is also former chairman of the Rockefeller family controlled, Chase Manhattan Bank, made the following statement to the United Nations Business Council on 23 September 1994: “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
    The “right major crisis” can entail numerous occurrences however the one which would help us to not see the Constitution being pulled out from under us is the one which Madison warns would be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. The PNAC documents authored by a “think tank” which is now virtually the whole of the Bush Cabinet called for a “New Pearl Harbor” in 1992 and then again in 1998. This “New Pearl Harbor” was to give them the means to attack Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and even North Korea. This “Project for a New American Century” drew up the plans for carrying us further to the goal of the New World Order and One World Government. It created the vehicle to introduce the Second Patriot Act and further shredding of the Constitution which means eradication of our rights as Americans.
    This relinquishing of our rights has been going on since the start of Bolshevikism and maybe before. There are volumes of data regarding the methodical takeover of the United States of America. It started well over one hundred years ago and it is continuing with more clever deception and slight of hand than ever before.

    In the Book, “The Charter of Liberty” it speaks of Joseph Smiths statements regarding…” an apostasy from the original principles that were laid down to preserve basic freedoms” Further, the author states, “That apostasy from the principles is well documented.” Then he quotes what President John Taylor said about this issue in 1884:

    By and by, you will find they will tear the Constitution to shreds, as they have begun now; they won’t have to begin; they have started long ago to rend the Constitution or our country in pieces; and in doing so they are letting loose and encouraging a principle which will react upon themselves with terrible consequences. (William O. Nelson, The Charter of Liberty, Deseret Book Co, pp 1-2)

    The insidious destruction of the Constitution, again admitted by the aforementioned well known financier and politico David Rockefeller, is something he doesn’t mind. He refers to a world system which would totally decimate our Constitutional freedoms.

    In his memoirs, David Rockefeller, 2002, discusses the accusations made by some regarding Rockefeller complicity in world government and their manipulation of our economic system to meet their goals of world domination. Rockefeller too has the audacity to admit it without compunction. He says in his autobiography:

    For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure-one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and am proud of it (David Rockefeller, Memoirs, 2002, Random House: p. 405).

    Notice Rockefellers use of the term “extremist” when identifying those who would call him on his involvement in the collectivist one world movement. He does exactly what the rest of this movement does and that is to put those who are searching for truth and freedom on the fringe elements of society. In the former Soviet Union intellectuals and others attempting to expose the murderous evils of the Red State, were labeled nutcases, mentally unstable and put in psychiatric lockups, or sent away to the gulags. The same tactics are used by the people Moroni and Joseph Smith warned about. If one attempts to expose the truth regarding those conspiring to undermine this nation, the dogs are called out to destroy the reputation of that person. Russell Tice, a whistleblower, formally with the NSA, was told to get a psych evaluation and then deemed mentally unstable. To what end? Saying the Agency was spying on normal American citizens without a warrant. This protocol to silence truth is bureaucratic despotism of the most flagrant sort, and Tice is not the only one who has received this malicious treatment. (ABCNEWS.COM, January 10, 2006)

    So who are these people who threaten us from within? What or where does this secret combination emanate, which melds with the satanic communist of the world. Prophets today and in the Book of Mormon speak of this Leviathan …”which is seeking to …overthrow the freedoms of all lands…” (Ether 8:25). We have been warned by our leaders from the beginning regarding this demonic force.

    Richard Vetterli, Brigham Young graduate, post graduate at the University of Utah, and former faculty member at UCLA and Pepperdine says,…”the Mormon Church was one of the foremost religious organizations in the United States to understand and warn it’s people of the communist criminal conspiracy.” Further, he stated…”in 1936, the First Presidency of the Mormon Church declared adherence to the doctrine of communism as treasonable not only to the United States, but Mormonism as well.” This declaration has never been repealed or abrogated.
    Vetterli likewise stated that the General Authorities…”have warned their people against communism and its secret combinations” (The Constitution by a Thread, p.86).

    In the book Mormon Doctrine, by Bruce R. McConkie, he does not mince words as to what communism is. He says:

    Basically and chiefly, communism is a form of false religion; it is one of the major divisions of the church of the devil. It denies God and Christ; belittles Christianity; runs counter to the moral and ethical standards of religion and decency; denies men their agency; wrenches from them their inalienable rights; and swallows the individual and his well being up in the formless mass of the state. Communism is also a political movement, one that fosters and promotes world revolution, and has as its aim the subjugation of all free peoples and nations. It necessarily is a dictatorship of the severest and most ruthless type. The position of the Church relative to communism is stated by the first presidency in these words: “With great regret we learn from credible sources, governmental and others, that a few Church members are joining, directly or indirectly, the communists and are taking part in their activities….since communism, established, would destroy our American Constitutional government, to support communism is treasonable to our free institutions, and no patriotic American citizen may become either a communist or supporter of communism.” (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, pp.151-152)

    Professor Quigley, the admitted insider to these conspiracies in collusion with communism proffers the notion that some American international banking institutions and the communists are driven by the same goals or are one in the same.

    Cleon Skousen, former FBI of 15 years and BYU college professor, interviewed Dr Bella Dodd, a former member of the National Committee of the U.S. Communist Party. She stated in the interview…”I think the Communist conspiracy is merely a branch of a much bigger conspiracy!”
    Dr. Skousen continued with the interview and revealed some startling facts. Here is what he said:

    Dr. Dodd said she first became aware of some mysterious super leadership right after World War II when the U.S. Communist Party had difficulty getting instructions from Moscow on several vital matters requiring immediate attention. The American Communist hierarchy was told that any time they had an emergency of this kind they should contact any one of three designated persons at the Waldorf Towers. Dr. Dodd noted that whenever the Party obtained instructions from any of these three men, Moscow always ratified them.

    What puzzled Dr. Dodd was the fact that not one of these three contacts was a Russian. Nor were any of them Communists. In fact, all three were capitalists!

    Dr. Dodd said, “I would certainly like to find out who is really running things.”

    This reviewer had also observed a number of strange developments which seemed to point to a conspiratorial control center higher and stronger than either Moscow or Peking. For example, when Harry Dexter White (Under-Secretary of the U.S. Treasury during World War II) was discovered to be a Soviet agent, the White House was immediately informed. But instead of being fired or arrested, Harry Dexter White was appointed as the new Executive Director of the U.S. Mission to the International Monetary Fund to the United Nations. He was also given a substantial increase in salary. J. Edgar Hoover was amazed. Attorney General Herbert Brownell, Jr. stated publicly that President Truman knew White was a Soviet spy when he made the appointment. (W. Cleon Skousen, The Naked Capitalist, pp. 1-2)

    Ezra Taft Benson wrote that Harry Dexter White was also influential in pushing us into the war with Japan and such was to create benefit for the USSR:

    “Since 1933 one of the main objectives in Soviet policy had been to maneuver America into war with Japan. Japan was a serious threat to Soviet desires in the Far East. If her power were broken, there would be no difficulty in realizing Soviet objectives in Asia. The Roosevelt Administration wittingly or unwittingly followed the Soviet line, and Harry Dexter White, an important and trusted official in the Administration, drafted a note to Japan that produced the war for which Roosevelt had been looking… In other words, Harry Dexter White, a Soviet agent, helped in an important, even decisive, way to draft the ultimatum that provoked war between Japan and the United States. This was a primary Soviet aim in the Far East.” (Anthony Kubek, Communism At Pearl Harbor, p. 20; Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p. 94)

    These revelations pose a strong argument that subversion from within is quite real and that others behind the scenes are truly in control.

    Skousen quotes former British Prime Minister …” Benjamin Disraeli: ‘The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are NOT behind the scenes.’ I began to wonder if the British Intelligence Digest reports which claimed that there is a small but powerful control group behind the scenes which is extremely influential in manipulating world events.” (Skousen, The Naked Capitalist, p.4)

    With the collapse of the Soviet Union and Cold War over what do these findings tell us? Let’s examine Communisms beginnings, who was involved and for what purpose.

    Modern day communism, whose roots were established by Karl Marx and Friedrick Engel, had ties to another nefarious organization or secret society, if you will, whose sole purpose was to seek power, gain, glory and the destruction of the kingdom of God or Christianity.

    One who speaks candidly about the genesis of the “Internationale” is Gary H. Kah a high ranking government liaison invited to join the WCPA (World Constitution and Parliament Association) overseeing the planning of implementation of the One World Government. He’s received a myriad of honors for his scholastic and professional achievements: Governor’s Commendation for out standing service to the state of Indiana; the A.C. Wall Street Journal Award for outstanding economic achievement; Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges; IBC’s Men of Achievement Award, and Who’s Who in the Midwest, and Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America.

    Kah once involved with the implementation of the world structure has joined the fight for freedom in exposing the diabolical machinations of this movement. He therefore did copious research into its history and ambitions and began to expose it.

    In his book, “En Route to Global Occupation”, he states…”In 1847 an obscure intellectual by the name of Karl Heinrich Marx joined one of the branch organizations of the Illuminati, called the “League of the Just”. Occult Theocracy, he says, states, “It is a fact that for a certain length of time Mazzini (the European leader of the Illuminated Freemasonry) and Marx were closely associated.” Mazzini and his International Masons would use Marx to penetrate and subvert the growing socialist labor movement. So obvious was Marx’s connection with Mazzini that during the early days of the Russian revolution, revolutionaries called themselves Spartacusts (after Adam Weishaupt’s Illuminati pseudonym) before becoming known as Bolsheviks and later as communists. Marx living in London during this time frequented clubs and cafes where the laborers or proletariat congregated. Successfully penetrating these circles he was named to the sub-committee at the meeting in St. Martin Hall on 28 September1864 when the “Internationale” (Communist Movement) was founded. Illuminized Freemasonry saw in the “Working Mens Association” the very instrument they needed for carrying out their plans (p.117).

    What is the Illuminati? According to Kah, a Masonic historian named Albert G. Mackey describes the Illuminati as a “secret society”, founded May 1, 1776, (May 1, is a well known Communist holiday and the day illegal workers are boycotting) by Adam Weishaupt, a professor of canon law at the University of Ingolstadt. Mackey tells in his biographical depiction of Weishaupt, he is celebrated in the history of masonry as the founder of the Illuminati of Bavaria.

    Another historian and prominent mason, John Robison, was entrusted with some of the original documents and correspondences of the Illuminati. In his book, “Proofs of a Conspiracy, 1798, he reproduced major segments of the Illuminatis original writings. Robison stated, “The express aim of the order was to abolish Christianity, and overthrow all civil government.” He further quoted Weishaupt as stating that the plan for a New World Order can succeed …”in no other way but by secret associations which will by degrees, and in silence, possess the selves of the government of the United States,(Just as Gadianton did with the Nephite people) and make use of those means for this purpose.” Using deception and intrigue,(Just as President Benson indicated) Weishaupt and his inner circle of adepts succeeded at gaining the support of Germany’s Masonic lodges. All theses branches were controlled by twelve leading adepts headed by Weishaupt, who at the lodge in Munich held in his hands the threads of the whole conspiracy. (p.108)

    Weishaupt also succeeded at forging an alliance between Illuminized Freemasonry and the growing Rothschild’s banking network, thereby giving the “order” the financial means to begin to carry out its plans. Later in the twentieth century, CFR member (Council On Foreign Relations, which has ties to the illuminati), and banking cartel aficionado, Paul Warburg, testified before US Congress on February 17, 1950, stating, “We shall have world government whether or not you like it—by conquest or consent.” Warburg is just one of many who have audaciously pushed for or admitted the push for globalism and world government. Warburg incidentally was one of the principals in duping Congress into passing the Payne-Aldridge Act to create the Federal Reserve, which was against the warnings of our Founding Fathers. (Gary Allen, The Rockefeller Files, p. 77)

    Secret societies have been in control of “The Fed” ever since. The history of these secret societies and their collusion to continue the War in Heaven here on the earth is not only true but has a gruesome and fiendish embodiment. The person involved with this rogue element in the United States during its adolescence is a shadowy figure called Albert Pike.

    Born in Boston in 1809, Pike became the head of Freemasonry for the U.S. by 1859. He studied the Cabbala and the Occult. Pike’s works include Ariel, The Sephar & Debarim, Book of the Word, Legenda Magistralia, Ritual of the New and Reformed Palladium, The Rituals of Elect Magus, and The Book of Apadno, which contains the reign of the Anti-Christ from the satanic point of view. However, his most famous book ever written was “Morales and Dogmas”. Reviewing his writings it is clear to see how Mormon theology names communism as being Satanic, as its authorship came via secret societies…”which are abominable and wicked above all in the site of God.” (Ether 8:18)

    Historian Edith Star Miller, in her book “Occult Theocracy” describes Pikes Freemasonry as Neo-Gnosticism, teaching that divinity is dual and Lucifer is the equal of Adonay (Christ). It is in fact Lucifer who is worshipped within this Rite of Freemasonry. Miller explains:

    The Holy See of the Dogma for the whole Masonic world was set up at Charleston, the sacred city of Palladium, Pike the Sovereign Pontiff of Lucifer; was the president of the Supreme Dogmatic Directory, Composed of ten brothers of the highest grades who formed his Grand College of Emeritus Masons. The Sovereign Executive Directory of High Masonry was established at Rome under Mazzini himself. (pp 217-18)

    When Pike issued his instructions in 1889, freemasons from the thirtieth degree up either already knew or were, for the first time, informed of the Luciferic nature of the order. Today, however, the belief in Lucifer is not revealed until a higher level. Pike intended the degree to serve over as training school to gradually condition and prepare the candidate for the ultimate acceptance of Luciferic initiation…In freemasonry everything has a double meaning. Thus, the candidate is practicing occultism throughout his degree work without knowing it. (pp. 114-115)

    Although Bush is not officially a Freemason he is a member of a powerful secret society with Masonic overtones known as the Skull and Bones. Ron Rosenbaum, a writer for Esquire magazine, revealed in a 1977 article “that the Skull and Bones is linked to the Illuminati. The Skull and Bones also happens to be one of the secret symbols of Freemasonry.” (Kah, En Route to Global Occupation, p. 54) This information is vital to our understanding what we should follow politically and economically. The involvement with these satanic secret societies has only bad consequences and…”are wicked and abominable in the site of God.” (Ether 8:18)

    “There is a real danger,” warns the late Prophet Ezra Taft Benson, “in a complacent, uniformed citizenry. This is our real danger, yes, the truth must be told even at the risk of destroying, in large measure, the influence of men who are widely respected and loved by the American people”
    (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.170) Is the truth something the devil wants us to know? The master of deception has utilized men down through the ages to achieve his purposes. Much of history we take to heart has been sullied in a wholesale manner and is fiction as we know it.

    Researching this subject has led to many questions and one of many was how could we be so deceived and blinded to much of what is going on. History surely takes many twists and turns and comes down many roads we have never heard of or thought about. Everything seems surreal and much like the Twilight Zone, Orwellian. There is a history written by an ancient people here in the Americas that many know nothing about. It has a very crucial and apocalyptic message with in its pages and also a warm and loving message of hope and salvation. The hope is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to many who have never heard his message or are confused to the real intent of the Savior. Also, it is to restore hope to those who have fallen to the deception that the Biblical story and teachings of Jesus are a fraud. There is a strong movement in the world attempting to discredit the veracity of the divinity of Christ.

    The Book of Mormon helps expose this demonic force for what it is, which force created the ideas of communism and its many components.

    After research and study regarding this subject, there was a nagging question that arose, what was the role of the former Soviet Union in all this? What was discovered was that the same elements that have taken dominion of America have always had control of the Soviet Union, as they were responsible for establishing the Soviet police state from inception. Also, it has been shown that the USSR was built to create a dichotomy in the world with the United States which would create enormous tension, chaos and fear of nuclear war that eventually there would be a move to resolve the tension like the keys on a piano to consonance or harmony which is the New World Order.

    Eventually, the plan would be to mix the two systems or make a synthesis with elements of both ideologies. Georg Hegel, Professor at the University of Berlin and mentor of Marx, explains this entire plan in his writings from the 1800s as thesis (U.S.) antithesis (What would become the USSR) and then synthesis (New World Order). Hegelian dialectics greatly influenced Marxism which was a product of the secret societies, Freemasonry, during that time.

    Referring to Illuminized Freemasonry as the malicious work done upon the Russian people, Historian, Nesta Webster, in her book, World Revolution, 1921, expresses her indignation.

    It is difficult to write these things calmly. For to deceive a people, whose simple faith and lack of education prevents them seeing whither they are being led, is as cowardly as to guide a blind man into a ditch. Yet this is what the exploiters of the Internationale did for the working men. (p. 116)

    This movement, the “Internationale” was completely dominated by secret societies, eventually working its way into Russia where, with the help of existing lodges, the assistance of Trotsky and Lenin, and the outside support of the international financiers, forced itself upon the Russian people. Winston Churchill summarized these events in a statement appearing on 8 February, 1921 in London’s Sunday Illustrated Herald:

    From the days of Spartucus-Weishaupt, to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky…this world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development and impossible equality has been steadily growing. It has been the mainstream of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian People by the hair of their heads and become the undisputed masters of the enormous empire.

    Churchill illustrated the coherency from Weishaupts Illuminati to Marx and Trotsky as being part of the movement to create world government. He must have known something about these matters as he had been a Mason himself.

    “Mormon doctrine readily identifies the Satan-inspired conspiratorial forces which have operated down through time.” States Vetterli, “the pattern is easily recognized, conspiratorial subversion of the culture and morality of existing society, the spreading of false doctrine, the deliberate creation of chaos and the reckless use of murder. The criminal conspiracy is affected by secret combinations among groups that operated, according to the time and place and their relative power, both open and clandestine.” Further, he states that in history, “they have sought destruction and death in order to perpetuate anarchy and chaos…this is so the hope of a “criminal dictatorship” or “new order” can come to fruition (Constitution by a Thread, p. 117). The disciples of the cult of Cain continue the depredations, wars and secret assassinations in their struggle for chaos, power and gain. This has continued—tells the Book of Mormon as the prime motivating stimulus to murderers and warmongers ever since.”

    Moreover, Vetterli says, the …”Bible speaks of cults and worshipers of darkness and idolatry, the conspiracies and spiritual degradation. He further tells how to many, the French Revolution was a mere precursor of the much greater upheaval which would end in the establishment of communism by force and by decree. Such are the dictates of Plato’s, Rousseau’s and Marxist theory of “collective good over the individual,” and the involvement of an elite group in control of virtually every facet of society.

    Vetterli also explains that the “art of Illuminism and socialism was the ability to enlist dupes, reformers and honest visionaries.” He too made clear that the aim was to capture unsuspecting dupes who sincerely believed that the means was… “to reform social problems that existed. The cause of both the Illuminati and the socialist was helped greatly during periods of social and economic unrest.” (p.123) Just as the time during “The Great Depression” when Roosevelt’s “New Deal” was enacted and later Johnson’s “Great Society”, all was to implement socialistic devices and controls, more centralization of power.

    Though social and economic unrest is perpetrated by these rabble-rousers there are too demonstrations of benevolence. The lower echelons of Freemasonry are filled with works of philanthropy and demonstrate a pious image of goodwill. This is how many good Christians are duped into joining; only later being tested to higher levels or degrees. Eventually, blackmail, being hoodwinked, and tempted to commit vice and malfeasance is implemented. Some drop out recognizing the inherent evil while others stay entrenched lusting for the promise of power, money, and a decadent lifestyle filled with all manner of licentious living.

    During the times of the Book of Mormon there is an object lesson concerning a band of economic conspirators that was able to take over a free society and entrench itself through an encompassing bureaucracy, not through conquering the society by force of arms, but with the approbation and help of that once prosperous people. It is imperative to understand writes Nibley, “that Gadiantons phenomenal success was due to the fact that the majority of the whole Nephite nation submitted to his plans of operation and philosophy”. It was a philosophy of power in the hands of those who help themselves up as the only ones knowledgeable enough to control the affairs of the people.”

    The general decay of the spiritual values in the Nephite people contributed to the gathering of the strength of the “New Order” says Vetterli. Further, he draws upon Nibleys comments…”that before long many of the Nephite people, seeking centralized protection of their businesses against investigation by the existing government and centralized protection against the competition of the market, joined with the ‘New Order’ “(p. 166).

    Those who sought to revive the principles of freedom and morality within the nation were branded as fanatics or extremists, [isolationists] and an effort was made to still the pronouncements through threats, intimidation and ridicule (p.168). Today whistle blowers from all walks of life receive the same lurid treatment. Those who espouse true ideals of freedom regarding the constitution are put in the same camp as the liberals today or are called mentally inept or crazy. A bait and switch is taking place. The party which for a time could have been the party to restore the Constitution to its full vibrancy is now in collusion to destroy it wittingly and unwittingly.

    The Left who in the past was for big government (and still is) and less freedom is now making a hue and cry with regards to the freedoms being whittled away. They are lamenting the breaches being made by those in power. Many true constitutional patriots are afraid to speak out because they are being labeled as un-American, not patriotic or even treasonous. What a marvelous use of double speak. We have been so brainwashed into believing one must support government no matter what, especially if your party is in power. We are taught that the Right Wing would almost never violate our trust. They would never threaten the Constitution. “They have our best interest,” they say. All reason, the scriptures, numerous prophets and our Founding Fathers say otherwise. Thomas Jefferson said, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
    (Benson, The Red Carpet, p. 201) Moreover, Benson says…”anyone who tries to equate this love of constitutional principles as meaning hatred of our national leaders is using Goebbels-styled deception.”(Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.35) Goebbels was the Minister of Propaganda for the Nazi regime.

    Secret society propaganda is quite cleaver. If they want people who follow their every deed to repel an idea even though it is correct, they have the far left fringe of the democrats espouse the idea, like upholding the constitution.

    We do what ever the liberal democrats aren’t. If Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi or Cynthia McKinney are for something like defending the Bill of Rights then we look the other way. If a liberal is defending it, then it must be nonsense. The liberals could truly care less about much of the Constitution; they just want to get back in power so they can enrich themselves on the road to Globalism.

    This is how we have been conditioned to believe. The pundits and the administration tell us what to believe and think. If they say all is well (in Zion) then it must be. We need not research anything. We should just trust them. They must know things we don’t and why question anything anyway. Just keep with your busy life. We’ll take care of everything, they seem to exclaim.

    If Dick Cheney advocates torture then it must be for our own good and the good of humanity. If those who are getting above us (secret societies) are kidnapping people world wide and torturing them in other countries because they may be tied to terrorism or whatever else it must be okay. Sadism must be irresistible within these secret societies. My research did show that sadistic behavior is something “they” delight in; right out of Satan’s textbook it seems.

    In the midst of mayhem, warmongering and astronomical federal spending we are told things are prosperous. Numerous jobs are being created and inflation is down and the demagoguery dung keeps piling higher and higher. All this, in the face of jobs being shipped over seas with layoffs and buyoffs are at an all time high. We then are ridiculed for being defeatist or negative. One is called an isolationist if not on the bandwagon of Globalism. They want us to believe this self-destruction is the best thing since all the Chinese products started flooding our market and our dollar started plummeting. We just need to shut up and put up or else we are anti-American.

    These arguments are juvenile and misleading. What we need is our unadulterated Constitution and government not manipulated by ungodly avaricious men and women. Peace and prosperity can exist here but only under certain conditions as the Book of Mormon states.

    The Book of Mormon reveals within its pages periods of peace and prosperity when the people maintained a high degree of spirituality and morality. These ideal eras came to an end only when an exceedingly great wickedness spread over the land. Idleness, sin, debauchery, war, corruption in society and government, the loss of freedom, the over-emphasis of materialism and its concomitant drive for power; these in the end spelled the destruction of society in general (p.169).

    Former statesman and Church General Authority, J. Reuben Clark, in his studies of the Roman Empire, names the force of law as the tool of centralization of power and government edict. Many imperial edicts were given supposedly to benefit the people’ however, Elder Clark reveals this: “It is interesting to note that these laws, proclaimed over 1500 years ago, had provisions covering such so-called modern concepts, which our émigrés and fellow travelers would have us believe are new inventions, as price fixing, black markets, excessive taxation, socialized medicine, conscription of labor, anti-Semitism, inflation, corruption in government bureaus, the relation between church and state—all phrases familiar to our ears. Under these laws, ‘the entire population was organized as in one vast army. All, including the highest officials, were strictly classified, and even the least had a station. In substance this meant that everyone did what he was told, and did not act without permission.’ There was a great body of secret police to report disobedience (Homeland Security and domestic spying); there was a special secret police appointed to watch the ordinary secret police. “

    Elder Clark shows that although “these laws were provided for security,” the result was regimented terror and economic scarcity…there can be no permanent stability where men are not free. In fewer than forty years from the issuance of the Theodosian Code (474 A.D.) the Empire of the West fell, notwithstanding the operation, under complete autocratic powers, of economic devices enacted to promote the empire; some of these devices were the same ones that we have been told will rebuild our economic structure and preserve our free institutions. These devices failed with Rome, they will ultimately fail with us. (J. Reuben Clark, Stand Fast By Our Constitution, pp. 140-41)

    Bill and Penny Bower, researchers of the occult and globalism, discuss in their book “Globalism, Americas Demise”, 1984, that Globalists use war and terrorism to gain control of the masses. They maintain that a method used by the conspirators is called “Crisis Management.” They say “crisis management puts the masses in a situation where they do not care about long range consequences because they are too concerned about the tyranny of the immediate.” Moreover, the “globalists happily provide their solutions to the problems they have created.” As they have control of the government, their solutions are usually government programs, which centralize more power. We accept their solutions rather than fighting the system.

    Bower and Bower prophetically stated in 1984 that “if you don’t have a war as a vehicle of change and control, what is the next best thing? TERRORISM! (p.88) terrorist activity is as much a part of the Globalist program as drugs, mind control, sex ed, New Age and Eastern Cults, Hunger projects, and WAR [(emphasis mine) p.88]. James Madison said, “No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

    Don’t think for a moment that satan does not understand this vital principle laid down by our Forefathers.

    Bower and Bower further illustrate that…”most of the terrorist revolutions and guerilla wars occur in the most densely populated areas –the loss of life running in the millions and in areas that produce more food, oil and resources than needed—e.g. Southeast Asia and the Middle East, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Central America in general. Terrorist activity reduces production and consumption in the areas resources, especially food and replaces them with disease, death, destruction, famine and despair. Despair is a major force in crisis management.

    As a side note to the issue of oil, Kah discusses the notion of the Globalists controlling the oil ind

    There is as much oil in Alaska as Arabia, January 25, 2002
    Reviewer: “rce33″ (Missoula, Montana United States) – See all my reviews

    Although dated, having been written in the early 70′s, the testimony of Rev. Lindsay is valuable. The author is a simple, but Godly man who only states what he saw, and came to the obvious conclusions. It is amazing how brainwashed people are that they revile anyone who speaks the truth. Those people who doubt Rev. Lindsay need to open their hearts and minds and investigate more on the matter. Rev. Lindsay, Chaplin on the Prudhoe Bay Pipeline, the largest construction project in history to that time, having executive status, was present at the discovery of an oil field below Gull Island the size of the Prudhoe Bay pool. The gov’t forced the oil companies to keep quiet or else they’d shut them down with over regulation. Rev. Lindsay saw the gusher come in and was there when the test results came in. We need to stop financing the Arab weapons programs against us and utilize our own abundant resources. The executive of the oil company at Gull Island told the pastor that there are many pools of oil like that at Prudhoe Bay under Alaska, but that the government won’t let them be touched. Consistent with Lindsay’s experience, I personally know of a deposit of oil in northwest Montana that is being concealed from the public. This is a good book for those investigating the international banking conspiracy.

    As one can see there may be more to the oil crisis we face in the world today. The Internationalists use the oil issue to implement more controls and set more precedents as was done with the intentional disregard or negligence during the” Katrina Catastrophe”. Posse Comitatus was overturned during the crisis. A shoot to kill policy was put in place and the confiscation of guns was implemented even from the law abiding citizens. Thereafter, more government programs were instituted. To this day 6,000 people are still unaccounted for due to the “Katrina Catastrophe.” All of this, a means to an end, just as the ugly specter of war is put into place for the creation of change—world government is the ultimate goal in the guise of making the world a safer place. Everything is done for our own safety and more precisely to bolster the power of those who have power.

    With the study of human nature and to quote Lord Acton, that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” reveals that all is not done for our own well being or safety. The true reason is as Moroni warned which is to get power…” to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie and to commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms.” (Ether 8:16) This murder and plunder is perpetuated in the guise of national security and done through National Security Council Resolutions. U.N. authority makes for a quasi world government which is egregiously out of step with our God inspired Constitution. For us to be involved with it is unconstitutional.

    Benson points out that the communist/globalist use the UN so that countries …”would be forced into liberation. The ancient doctrines of conspiratorial collectivism came forth masquerading as democracy.” Further, he discusses” the manipulation of he masses under the guise of “democracy” was becoming a mature science. Under Rousseau’s ‘general will’ one was not free if didn’t agree with ‘general will.’” Benson, too tells us how …”the world has been bathed in the blood of countless victims, and millions of people suffer under the yoke of dictatorship and totalitarianism in the name of “democracy” and “equality.” (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, pp 124-26)

    Any serious student of the U.N. will find that its charters are nothing to beholden for a country based upon principles of freedom. The U.N. Charter is based upon tyranny in the guise of peace and goodwill and for the goal of a “One World Government.”

    Kah, explains in “En Route to Global Occupation”, that in order for humanity to arrive at World Government they first have to be convinced that such a body is essential. Certain conditions have to be created so that people will capitulate to such as the only alternative. He said, “If the people of the world could somehow only be convinced that nations were responsible for war and that peace could only be achieved if nationalism were eliminated, then perhaps humanity would finally arrive at a point of accepting a One World Authority.” He then discusses the sinister plan to reach such a conclusion. He says, “wars had to he created, sparked and fanned into existence by acts of terrorism and military aggression”. Virtually the whole world would be affected by the armed conflict and violence, and weapons and conflicts had to be supplied by someone (p.118).

    Kah is not telling this to us after terrorism became a paramount issue in the world. He wrote these warnings in 1992. One year before the first “Trade Center” bombing and four before the Oklahoma City bombing. Of course terrorism has been around since Cain and is not new; however it has become paramount on the world stage for marked change to slide us into the New World Order.

    Georg Hegel who influenced Marx, the Illuminati and other tyrants “believed war kept government strong” and he is famous for the idea that, “the state is God.” Being that there are many who espoused the notion that “the state is superior to the individual,” it is not too difficult to realize where Prussian and Nazi militarism emanated (Globalism, Americas Demise, pp. 97-98).

    War and terrorism keep the masses in a constant state of fear and agitation, thus disengaging the ability to think rationally. Too, it creates a stir of blind patriotism and a fanaticism in favor of government decrees no matter how despotic. The same tactics were used in Nazi Germany to facilitate its existence. The Nazis were able to thrive due to the fear of the unknown, terrorism, real and fabricated by Hitler, juxtaposed with severe economic instability and Communist Jews vying for power.

    Like men and women in a town stricken by an earthquake, millions of Germans saw the apparently solid framework of their existence cracking and crumbling. In such circumstances men are no longer amenable to the arguments of reason. In such circumstances men entertain fantastic fears, extravagant hatreds, and extravagant hopes. In such circumstances the extravagant demagogy of Hitler began to attract a mass following as it had never done before (Hitler, A Study in Tyranny, p. 153).

    MIND CONTROL

    It is more effective to manage society by mind control than by physical coercion. The events of 9-11 and the “war on terror” mostly are exercises in mass brainwashing.

    German psychiatrist Kurt Lewin, who became director of the elite-sponsored Tavistock Institute in 1932, developed the thinking behind 9-11. In the book /”Mind Control World Control”/ (1997) Jim Keith writes:

    Lewin is credited with much of the original Tavistock research into mass brainwashing applying the results of repeated trauma and torture [of individuals] in mind control to society at large. If terror can be induced on a widespread basis into a society, Lewin has stated, then society reverts to a tabula rasa, a blank slate, a situation where control can easily be instituted from an external point. “Put another way: By the creation of controlled chaos, the populace can be brought to the point where it willingly submits to greater control. Lewin maintained that society must be driven into a state equivalent to an ‘early childhood situation.’ He termed this societal chaos ‘fluidity.’ (p. 44)

    Keith cites another Tavistock researcher Dr. William Sargent author of “Battle for the Mind: A Physiology of Conversion and Brain-Washing” (1957): “Various types of beliefs can be implanted after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by …deliberately induced fear, anger or excitement.” (p.48)

    Now some may wonder about our present situation. Economic crisis and fear were heaved upon us right after 9/11. Anthrax was sent around the country in envelopes which turned out to be “weapons grade.”(which was tracked back to an Army Depot) The stock market crashed to new lows. We were told we had been attacked by terrorists.

    We were told this was an act of war. (Many eminent scientists, one being Physics Professor, Steven Jones of BYU; public figures, former author of Reaganomics, Paul Craig Roberts; Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt Col, USAF, flew 101 combat missions over Vietnam, former head of the Star Wars Program, and many other reputable people from all segments of society dispute the official government version and cover-up of 9/11) A crisis was created and the solution was government controls and loss of freedoms, expanding bureaucracy, deficit spending, and as Joseph Smith said “galvanic cronies” siphoning money from the treasury, through treasonous war profiteering and manipulation of the oil supply which equates to higher and record profits.

    The Prophet also mentioned the “circumvention of the Constitution”, which is exactly what is happening today. Due process of law is thrown out the window as Joseph prophesied. In an article from USA Today, 13 September 2005 we learn of the implications of the war on terror and its demand upon our freedoms:

    Shocking Ruling. Jose Padilla, who was born in New York and grew up in Chicago, landed in O’Hare airport more than three years ago and hasn’t been seen since. He disappeared into a succession of jails and military prisons without being charged with a crime, without trial and without even a hearing the allegations against him.

    In a ruling that puts the liberties of every citizen at risk, a federal appeals court said Friday there’s nothing wrong with that.
    Worse, the ruling—expected to be appealed—isn’t limited to O’Hare airport or to Padilla.
    The court said Congress has given the president authority to order the jailing of anyone anywhere for as long as he wishes, as long as he claims it’s connected to the war on terrorism.

    That sounds more like the power accorded a dictator than the president of the United States. Repeal of the Constitutions Fourth, Fifth and Sixth amendments wasn’t part of the package when Congress passed that anti-terrorism resolution after the 9/11 attacks.

    Padilla might be a threat. In the government’s shifting reasons for holding him, he has been accused at various times of plotting to set off a radio active “dirty bomb,” scheming to blow up apartment buildings or, most recently and vaguely, fighting against U.S. forces in Afghanistan. If the government has a case against Padilla, he should be indicted and put on trial. But Padilla, a U.S. citizen arrested on U.S. soil, can be held indefinitely without being charged, then no one’s liberty is secure. (USA Today, 13 September, 2005)

    Not too long ago after receiving significant pressure from certain groups, Padilla was indicted, but not on the charged that was originally intended due to lack of evidence.

    The people we uphold and support are doing what has been prophesied. These are the men who say “God Bless America” after speeches and democracy and freedom is on the march. They can’t possibly be evil. They tell us what we want to hear so why should I be upset. We can’t be negative. Stay positive because our troops will loose faith. We are put into a horrible position because our friends, neighbors and family are being used as pawns in this warmongering prophesied by many. We must “keep the faith” they tell us.

    Where is our faith? Is it in the first “Patriot Act” passed after the Oklahoma City bombing? Of course this was to protect us. Major gun legislation was enacted by Bushes cohort and Globalist Bill Clinton. The “Omnibus Terrorist Act” was brought forth which gave the President quasi dictatorial powers in naming people or organizations arbitrarily who he deemed to be tied to terrorism and thereafter able to arrest them without constitutional guarantees.

    The second “Patriot Act” brought about right after 9/11(over 2000 pages) was thrust upon us without congress having a copy to read. This draconian legislation virtually shreds the Bill of Rights, just as Joseph Smith warned. Our right to privacy is virtually non-existent so when or if people ever do try to rise up against tyranny it is so much easier for them to crush it. The spying taking place without 4th Amendment guarantees creates a police state. The reason, it is said, is to root out terrorism. Moreover, we are told the war on terrorism could last indefinitely, which means our God inspired Constitution is in grave danger of being lost forever. Notwithstanding, some in government wanted to make the Patriot Act permanent.

    Ezra T. Benson once said, “There is never any excuse that can compensate for the loss of liberty.” Moreover, he declared, “We Americans have strayed far from sound principles—morally, constitutionally, and historically. It has been getting us into a quagmire of trouble all over the world, and especially here at home” (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, pp xiv, 34).

    President Benson and others have shown that circumventing the Constitution in order to have security is dangerous and “is one of the most serious mistakes a President could make.” Moreover, he said “we seem oblivious to the causes of the rise an fall of nations. We are blind to the hard fact that nations usually sow the seeds of their destruction while enjoying unprecedented prosperity.” (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.50)

    Alan Bullock, in his book, “Hitler, A Study in Tyranny” showed that Adolf Hitler’s use of the “Enabling Act” for the protection and security of German citizenry was more accurately to subjugate and gain control of a once free German people. (p.254)

    Now with all the new government agencies created, wars which are killing our economy and our sons and daughters, we are spending ourselves into oblivion and increasing the debt which is already around eight trillion dollars. Our economy cannot handle this without collapsing. Deficit spending creates inflation and devaluation of the dollar. Nevertheless, this is exactly what they want. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have even gone as far as to sell the dollar short in the currency market, somehow knowing what may happen. These are the very things Joseph Smith warned about in 1844.

    Thomas Jefferson once said while president of the United States:

    I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against any form of tyranny over the mind of man. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must take our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labors and our amusements. (Benson, The Red Carpet, p.91)

    Bower and Bower stated, “Although education has been the vehicle to humanize, socialize, and communize us, the complete take over will come through an economic catastrophe” (Globalism, Americas Demise, p 125).

    Ezra Taft Benson said, “It is even possible that some of the government manipulators who have brought us into this economic crisis are hoping that in panic, we, the American people, literally will plead with them to take our liberties in exchange for the false promise of security” (An Enemy Hath Done This, p. 221).

    Kah, in 1992 warned, “unlike the previous world wars in which Germany was the main instigator, the worlds next major conflicts will undoubtedly be sparked by the hotbed of tensions surrounding the Middle East, if not Iraq a second time, them perhaps Iran or Syria” (Kah, En Route To Global Occupation, p.142).

    This is happening at this moment. We are now planning to attack Iran and of course they fabricate very compelling arguments to do such and even foment and stir the Muslims up to anger on purpose, just like some of the wicked Nephites did amongst the Lamanites and all this done for personal gain.

    What is it going to take for us to come out of our slumber, another Terrorist attack but more spectacular and macabre than the last? The mantra is,” it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.” And why is that? It is because they are the ones behind it all. They are the ones who seek “power to gain power and to murder and to plunder and to lie…” spoken of in the Book of Mormon and by virtually every latter day prophet (Ether 8:16).

    What are we doing today to combat theses secret combinations in our midst? Not a whole lot. We want security more than freedom. President Benson says, Greece fell because “a slackness and softness finally overcame them to their ruin. In the end more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security, a comfortable life and they lost all, security, comfort and freedom (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.51).

    Too, he quotes Will Durant’s book Caesar and Christ, in summarizing the causes of the destruction of the Roman Empire, “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade ( U.S. trade deficit, $805 billion as of March 16, 2006, USA Today) her bureaucratic despotism(states not complying with Federal tyranny are blackmailed with funding cutes or being fined like Arizona’s Education System right now) stifling taxes, her consuming wars (this speaks for itself)…” (P. x)

    “Relative to those who sit by idly pertaining to our decline and loss of freedom”, Benson says, “Any Christian constitutionalist who retreats from this battle jeopardizes his life here and hereafter. Seldom has so much responsibility hung on so few, so heavily… (p.60)

    Many of us seem to disregard pronouncements made regarding freedom if it does not come from the mouth of the Republican Party. This is part of the great deception. We may tend to believe more of what “our” ideology propounds more than the other camp even if the Democrats tell the truth at times. If the powers directing this country want part of it to eschew a certain policy, they have Ted Kennedy promulgate it. Even though the principle may be right we repudiate the notion because of the source. What is most crucial to understand is this; that both parties have been infiltrated by the Globalists, Communists or whatever name one would attach to them. In researching the goals of the Communists I found with irrefutable evidence that one of their goals was to infiltrate both political parties. Recorded in Congress are the 45 goals of the communist for the take over of this country.

    The Congressional record on January 10, 1963, in the House of Representatives, states as goal 15 to “Capture one or both of the political parties.” Of the 45 goals most of them have come to fruition. And both political parties have aided and abetted such. Number 6 states, “provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.” All through the Cold War, Vietnam and Korean wars, we shipped aid in both commodities and dollars to these anti-God anti-freedom loving countries. During the Vietnam War we sent aid to Poland while at the same time they sent shipments of arms to kill our boys. When Gorbachev was declaring so called Glasnost and Perestroika the Soviets received billions in aid. There is “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey says when talking about Perestroika or the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    Anatoliy Golitsyn, former KGB who defected in 1961, wrote “The Perestroika Deception” and predicted with 94 percent accuracy in his 1984 book “New Lies for Old” about the fall of the USSR. To summarize he warned that it was a ruse of enormous proportions (The Soviet Collapse). He shows in his documentation the plans for restructuring was not a 1985 Gorbachev invention but meticulously planned in 1958-60. He talks about fake democratization and strategic disinformation. That democratization is false is confirmed by Eduard Shevardnadze, Georgian president and a long time Western friend. As late as 1993, he admitted that elections do not equal democracy. Golitsyn further talks about “manipulation in the media and the destabilization of society through corruption.” Moreover, the Christian religion had to be secularized, and culture and morals corrupted for the revolution to be achieved peaceably. He also discusses the infiltration of the American churches. That agents were sent to seminaries and joined various sects to be influential and help promote disarmament and more control to the UN. These are goals of the Globalists and the Communist which are one in the same.

    Another Communist goal is “grant recognition to Red China, and admission to the UN”. Both parties have facilitated this. Number 17 is to get control of the schools and use them for propaganda. Globalism, socialism, and humanism have so heavily been taught and promoted. We are no longer taught the eternal principles of our Founding Fathers, Duty to God and Country as They intended for our protection. Instead we learn what that means from the Globalist leaders. We think it only logical that all countries are interdependent economically and eventually politically and all for the “New Order”. We must become world citizens like Weishaupt called himself as well as Rockefeller. And that leads us to goal 37 which is to “infiltrate and gain control of big business”(heavily bought up by Globalists), which leads to goal 4 which states, “permit free trade between all nations regardless of communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could used for war.” NAFTA, (Kissinger said, “NAFTA is a major stepping stone to the New World Order,” while promoting this destructive device) CAFTA, GATT, WTO, such trade organizations have been promoted by both political parties.

    “To the communist high command every act of ‘trade’ is part of a pattern of war strategy. Every act, as they have stated, is intended to weaken or destroy the enemy—meaning us”, says noted writer and economist Lawrence Fertig. Moreover, the communist strategy is to so weaken us economically that they will not only destroy international confidence in us, but weaken our own will to resist what they are so fond of calling the wave of the future. (Benson, The Red Carpet, pp.22, 230)

    These are just a few of the many diabolical aims of the Globalist/Communist. These Trade Agreements are designed to cripple our economy. One has to merely watch the news to see it happening before our eyes. Many nations are trying to get away from the dollar and use the Euro or buy tangible assets in lieu of American debt.

    Others goals include internationalizing the Panama Canal (Communist China runs both ends of it), promoting pornography, destroying the family, and making homosexuality a normal part of society, secularizing Christianity (ACLU and the Courts are doing a great job of this); Getting control of Hollywood and the media was part of their goals. Observe the sitcoms and movies these movers and shakers of the secret societies are promoting so heavily.(Broke Back Mountain, Will and Grace) The programs and agendas are designed to further the decay of our society, occupy us with sordid entertainment and put us to sleep so as not to notice our freedoms being eroded. (Congressional Record U.S. House of Representatives, January 10, 1963—Appendix, pp A34-A35)

    Dimitry Z. Manuilsky stated in a lecture at the Lenin School on Political Warfare in Moscow, 1931:

    Today, of course we are not strong enough to attack…to win we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtones and unheard of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction…(Cleon Skousen, The Naked Communist, p.293)

    The Communist and or Internationalist have done a brilliant job of pulling the wool tightly over our eyes. They have infiltrated the Democrats first and now the Republicans.

    President Benson said regarding the complicity of both parties in taking away our freedoms,” The facts are clear, the problem centers in Washington DC, and this applies to the administration of both political parties. And in the words of James Madison, ‘Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people, by gradual and silent encroachments, by those in power, than by sudden and violent usurpations.”(An Enemy Hath Done This, p. 6; Elliot’s Debates 3:87; Prophets, Principles and National Survival, p.104)

    President Benson also talks about the U.N. and it being the means for leading us into a single global government. He states, “Even the best of men could get caught up in the inevitable struggle for world power, and finally, the whole planet would be subject to an unchangeable dictatorship of the few over the many. True, such a development conceivably might not materialize for years, but it would materialize. The only legitimate question open to speculation is how soon” (An Enemy Hath Done This, p.178). In addition he says, “The UN concept is one of unlimited government power with virtually no meaningful restraints to protect individual liberty” (p. 204)

    President Benson too discusses the deceit and duplicity used by the Globalist. He states that “he doesn’t always deal in totally black instrumentalities—especially when he is trying to come to power. He must deceive. He must produce counterfeits. He must be willing to take one step backward, especially when it pacifies people about his past advances and makes it easier for him to take his next two steps forward (p.338). I.e. the dissolution of the USSR this markedly decreased our vigilance.

    Quoting J. Reuben Clark Jr., Benson says, “We are in the midst of the greatest exhibition of propaganda that the world has ever seen.” President Benson then gives the caveat, “Don’t believe all you hear” (p.286). Moreover, the late prophet says, “There is no guarantee that the devil will not deceive a lot of men who hold the priesthood” (p.291)

    Nesta Webster in her book, “Secret Societies and Subversive Movements”, 1924, says, “for behind the concrete forces of revolution…beyond that invisible secret circle which perhaps directs them all, is there yet another force, still more potent, that must be taken into account? In looking back over the centuries at the dark episodes that have marked history of the human race from its earliest origins, [there are]—strange and horrible cults, waves of witchcraft, blasphemies, at work in the world? Individuals, sects, or races bred with the desire of world domination, have provided the fighting forces of destruction, but behind them are veritable powers and darkness in eternal conflict with the powers of light” (pp 405-406).

    Regarding Communisms growth or our move to globalism Benson says,” for the sad truth is that communism would be insignificant in our country and the world were it not for consistent and persistent help which it is continuing to receive from right within our own government” (An Enemy Hath Done This, p 333).

    We are a “sleeping and apathetic people”, says David O. McKay. Things regarding our apathy haven’t changed a whole lot. In addition to that President Benson stated, “if America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute he flag, sing the national anthem, march patriotic parades, cheer fourth of July speakers—normally good Americans, but Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free, Americans who have been lulled away into a false security (p. 6).

    President Benson quotes John A. Widtsoe:

    The trouble of the world may largely be laid at the door of those who are neither hot nor cold, who always follow the path of least resistance. Whose timid hearts flutter at taking sides for the truth as in the great council in Heaven, so in the Church of Christ on earth, there can be no neutrality” (Prophets, Principles and National Survival, p. 440).

    Moreover, Ezra Taft Benson, states regarding the Constitution…”we have a divine mandate to preserve it. But, unfortunately, today in this freedom struggle many gentiles are showing greater wisdom in their generation than the children of light” (p.227). Alex Jones with his websites Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com is a good example of a gentile showing greater wisdom in our day.

    “And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, and they will say: All is well in Zion: yea Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them carefully down to hell.” (2 NE. 28:21) Is this what we believe because the Republicans control virtually all phases of government?

    Further Benson explains that we as members need to …”stand up for their peculiar standards and doctrine…” However he mentions something even more critical to protect…the more weighty principles such as the principles of freedom.” In the pre-existence many of our brothers and sisters lost their first estate for being in…”opposition to the weightier principles of freedom…”
    About the idea of persecution he declares that “we need not solicit persecution…but too, we should not …remain silent in the presence of overwhelming evils, for this makes cowards of men.” (p. 282).

    “There were men at Valley Forge who weren’t sure how the revolution would end, but they were in a much better position to save their own souls and their county than those timid men whose concern was deciding which side was going to win, or how to avoid controversy. The only questions before the final victory, are first, “what stand will each of take in this struggle?” and second, how much tragedy can be avoided by doing something now” (p, 61).

    President Benson makes an appeal to us by saying, “Take that long eternal look. Stand up for freedom no matter what the cost. It can help to save your soul—and maybe your country…the days ahead are sobering and challenging and will demand faith, prayers and loyalty of every American. May God give us the wisdom to recognize the dangers of complacency, the threat to our freedom and the strength to meet this danger courageously… (p. 45).

    Individual citizens must stand up and assume more than their share of responsibility. The speaker’s platform and distribution of literature, study clubs, home discussions—all must be pressed into service. All of us should read “Communist Revolution in the Streets”, by Gary Allen, with an introduction by Cleon Skousen. (p.199)

    Lastly President Benson lists the sophistry Satan uses to keep us from getting involved in this fight for freedom. He says “the devil has concentrated, and to a large extent successfully, in neutralizing much of the priesthood. He has reduced them to sleeping giants. His arguments are cleaver.” Here are a few examples:

    First: “We really haven’t received much instruction about freedom”, the devil says. This is a lie, for we have been warned time and time again. No prophet of the Lord has ever issued solemn warning than President David O. McKay. Last conference I spoke of a book embodying much of the prophets’
    warnings on freedom, from Joseph Smith to David O. McKay, which I commend to you. It is entitled Prophets, Principles and National Survival.

    Second: “You’re too involved in other Church work,” says the devil. But freedom is a weighty matter of the law; the lesser principles of the gospel you keep not leave this one undone. We may have to balance and manage our time better. Your other church work will be limited once your freedom is gone…

    Third: “You want to be loved by everyone,” says the devil, “and this freedom battle is so controversial you might be accused of engaging in politics.” Of course the government has penetrated so much of our lives that one can hardly speak for freedom without being accused of being political. Some might even call the war in heaven a political struggle—certainly it was controversial. Yet the valiant entered it with Michael. Those who support only the popular principles of the gospel have their reward. And those who want to lead the quiet, retiring life but still expect to do their full duty can’t have it both ways.

    Fourth: “Wait until it becomes popular to do,” says the devil, “or, at least until everybody in the Church agrees on what should be done.” But this fight for freedom might never become popular in our day. And if you wait until everybody agrees in this Church, you will be waiting through the second coming of the Lord. Would you have hesitated to follow the inspired counsel of the Prophet Joseph Smith simply because some weak men disagreed with him? God’s living mouthpiece has spoken to us—are we for him or against him? In spite of the Prophet’s opposition to increased federal aid and compulsory unionism, some Church members still champion theses freedom-destroying programs. Where do you stand?

    Fifth: “It might hurt your business or your family,” says the devil, “and besides why not let the gentiles save the country? They aren’t as busy as you are.” Well, there were many businessmen who went along with Hitler because it supposedly helped their business. They lost everything. Many of us are here today because our forefathers loved the truth enough that they fought at Valley Forge or crossed the plains in spite of the price it cost them or their families. We had better take our small pain now than our greater loss later. There were souls who wished afterwards that they had stood and fought with Washington and the founding fathers, but they waited too long—they passed up eternal glory. There has never been a greater time than now to stand up against [entrenched] evil. And while the gentiles established the Constitution, we have a divine mandate to preserve it. But unfortunately, today in this freedom struggle many gentiles are showing greater wisdom in their generation than the children of light.

    Sixth: “Don’t worry,” says the devil, “the Lord will protect you, and besides, the world is so corrupt and heading toward destruction at such a pace that you can’t stop it, so why try.” Well, to begin with, the Lord will not protect us unless we do our part. This devilish tactic of persuading people not to get concerned because the Lord will protect them no matter what they do is exposed in the Book of Mormon. Referring to the devil, it says, “And others will he pacify, and lull them into carnal security, and they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.” (2 Nephi 28:21).

    I like that word “carefully.” In other words, don’t shake them, you might awake them. But the Book of Mormon warns us that when we should see these murderous conspiracies in our midst that we should awake to our awful situation. Now why should we awake if the Lord is going to take care of us anyway? Now let us suppose that it is too late to save freedom. It is still accounted unto us for righteousness’ sake to stand up and fight. Some Book of Mormon prophets knew of the final desolate end of their nations, but they still fought on, and they saved some souls including their own by doing so. For, after all, the purpose of life is to prove ourselves and the final victory will be for freedom.

    The longer we wait, the heavier the chains, the deeper the blood, the more the persecution, and the less we can carry out our God-given mandate and world-wide mission. The war in heaven is raging on earth today. Are you being neutralized? (Ezra T. Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, pp 275-79)

    Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness;
    For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves… (D&C 58:27-28)

    Man, who is this D. Lamb guy? It took me 3 days to read all he has written, and I agree with about 97% of what he says. I love the way he writes, it is very understandable, the way he uses his paragraphs. I’d like to read more of his stuff, and find out more about him. I am glad I ran across his post.
