Constitution Has Been Suspended

A more readable version of what was previously posted and then removed by me(the colors were just too annoying for reading purposes!) This excerpt is from the following site:

Another good site is the following:

The barefootsworld site has even more information and more facts to support the ideas presented.

From the nowpublic site:
"But the Constitution of the United States, as a restraining influence in keeping the federal government within the carefully prescribed channels of power, is moribund, if not dead. We are witnessing its death-agonies, for when this bill becomes a law, if unhappily it becomes a law, there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its Constitutional powers."What bill is Congressman Beck talking about? In 1933, "the House passed the Farm Bill by a vote of more than three to one." Again, we see the doctrine of emergency. Once an emergency is declared, there is no Constitution. The cause and effect of the doctrine of emergency is the subject of this Report. In 1973, in Senate Report 93-549 (Exhibit 10), the first sentence reads:
"Since March the 9th, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency."Let's go back to Exhibit 9 just before this. What did that say? It says that if a national emergency is declared, there is no Constitution. Now, let us return to Exhibit 10. Since March the 9th of 1933, the United States has been, in fact, in a state of declared national emergency.
Referring to the middle of this exhibit:
"This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal constitutional processes. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens"and this situation has continued uninterrupted since March the 9th of 1933.
In the introduction to Senate Report 93-549 (Exhibit 11):
"A majority of the people of the United States have lived all their lives under emergency rule."Remember, this report was produced in 1973. The introduction goes on to say:
"For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency."The introduction continues:
"And, in the United States, actions taken by the government in times of great crisis have from, at least, the Civil War, in important ways shaped the present phenomenon of a permanent state of national emergency."How many people were taught that in school? How could it possibly be that something which could suspend our Constitution would not be taught in school? Amazing, isn't it?
Where does this (Exhibit 12) come from? Is it possible that, in our Constitution, there could be some section which could contemplate what these previous documents are referring to? In Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution of the United States of America, we find the following words:
"The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion, the public Safety may require it."Habeas Corpus - the Great Writ of Liberty. This is the writ which guarantees that the government cannot charge us and hold us with any crime, unless they follow the procedure of due process of law. This writ also says, in effect, that the privilege of due process of law cannot be suspended, and that the government cannot not operate its arbitrary prerogative power against We the People. But we see that the great Writ of Liberty can, in fact, under the Constitution, be suspended when an invasion or a rebellion necessitates it.
In the 5th Amendment to the Constitution (Exhibit 13), it says:
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger..."We reserved the charging power for ourselves, didn't we? We didn't give that power to the government. And we also said that the government would be powerless to charge one of the citizens or one of the peoples of the United States with a crime unless We, the People, through our grand jury, orders it to do so through an indictment or a presentment. And if We, the People, don't order it, the government cannot do it. If it tried to do it, we would simply follow the Writ of Habeas Corpus, and they would have to release us, wouldn't they? They could not hold us.
But let us recall that, in Exhibit 13, it says:
"except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in times of War or public danger."

On Prophecy

What is it that is transpiring as we watch events unfold? The explanations are many, the prophetic illustrations written over and over again in countless “best sellers” by any number of self-proclaimed “experts”. The most popular timeline is as follows:
1.       The known world comes to economic ruin, setting the stage for the introduction of the “anti-Christ”. He makes peace between Israel and the Arab world for “seven years”(Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24)
2.       This anti-Christ gains world power as a Hitler-type and gains influence over the worlds governments in order to destroy Christianity for three and a half years, which is termed the Great Tribulation(Daniel  7:25, Revelation 13:5-8)
3.       Israel builds the third Temple, where, at its dedication, this anti-Christ proclaims himself God, thus ushering in the Rapture of the Church and the beginning of the final three and a half years before Christ’s Second Coming, to be filled with the Wrath of God on unbelieving and unrepentant Man(Daniel 9:27, 2 Thessalonians 2, Matthew 24, Revelation 13-19)
4.       At the end of these seven years Christ returns to lay claim to the Earth and set His kingdom for 1,000 years(Revelation 20-21)
Of course, this series of events has been taught for many years, and I have watched as the identity of this ”beast” in Revelation and Daniel has gone from being the Soviets to the Chinese to Barack Obama with little circumspection or regret on the part of the mainstream “prophets”. For all of the Cold War the fundamentalist Christians were convinced that Russia would launch an attack on Israel and the United States, ever identified as the “good guy” by virtue of our obviously “Christian” nature, would be there to defend her. Notice that it is the US that rises to defend Israel and not Christ—an interesting change in persona that these “prophets” shamelessly promoted.
Few people today consider the beast to be exactly what the Reformation preachers believed it to be—the Roman Catholic Church, or the Pope at the very least. Today only fringe denominations of Christianity hold to this view as the Pentecostals and the Charismatics have usurped the very message of service to our fellow men and fellow Christians and have perpetuated a message of selfish blessings instead. In fact, it now seems as if there is no room for the generosity and service we learn about from Christ and the Apostles or the imminence of the fulfillment of scripture at all. It very much feels as if the Christian faith has taken a “dig-in” approach to their walk with Christ wherein we are instructed to grab any blessing we can and hold onto it, waiting for the Rapture to take us out of here.
Certainly this seems a defeatists approach for a faith of Victory. Of course, once Christians feel they have discerned the clear pace of events and what worldly crisis must be unfolding, they feel free to sit on their hands and await their proscribed “end”.
What happens when things don’t go quite according to plan?
It would seem to be that the world is going down in economic ruin. Only a fool would think otherwise. Whether or not this means an anti-Christ will come along is anyone’s guess, but the critical reaction to this ever-approaching catastrophe should be willingness to serve our fellow man and aid those who are going to be homeless, hungry, lost, and fearful. Isn’t this the very harvest we have been called upon to reap? As for our own fate, aren’t we told not to worry what we will eat or drink or wear because our heavenly Father will look out for us? But that isn’t the message today from the pulpit. Today they are telling us to go through the motions to make sure God’s blessing for us is not being interrupted by our actions. That is, we won’t be blessed if we aren’t observing communion correctly, or if we aren’t speaking our faith correctly, or if we are having any doubts, thus not walking in faith correctly.
Seems kind of harsh, doesn’t it? Seems a bit legalistic, as if we are to be so careful to observe every conscious act we engage in, from thought to motion, for fear that the transmutation of spiritual blessing into physical reality may not actually manifest itself in our lives. What? Are you kidding me? So Almighty God, who gave the free gift of SALVATION from SIN is hampered in His ability to sufficiently bless us as BLAMELESS CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM because we are not correctly praying over our food or taking EVERY thought captive? Isn’t that a message that puts works ahead of faith? Aren’t we freed from the law by the Love of Christ and His sacrifice on the Cross? Yet when legalism rears it’s ugly head and the people look to their shepherds for guidance, this is what they get.
Today we stand at the precipice and no one knows what lies ahead. What we who are Christian know is that no matter what happens we are saved. Not from material desire, not from hunger or cold, or from violence or persecution, but saved from the judgment fire of Hell. We are blameless in the sight of God, forgiven from our sin, and our one Holy Spirit guided mission is to go into the world and preach the Gospel to all men. Can we know what is before us? Perhaps, and we should be aware of what is going on in the world—in this day and age, how can we not?
But there will be no temple rebuilt, and there will be no “seven year peace” either. This is a distraction put upon us to keep us from doing what we are told to do and that is to preach the word of God. It isn’t time to build bunkers, but bridges. It isn’t time to store up for ourselves food and water against the events of Man, but to go out and HEAL by our faith the sick and poor and the hungry. Of course our very nature tells us to buy gold and silver and stock up on food, but that is not what our FAITH tells us to do.
“Do not store up your treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and thieves break in and steal. But store up your treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

Too often we hear advocates of violence, of retreat, of "survivalism", of desperation, and of fear, and even I have been one of them. These warnings may be true, truer than many would otherwise care to believe. I don't deny that the road ahead will be at least as bad as the past three years, but the focus, the objective of the faithful in Christ should not be deterred. If ever there was a time to be a light unto the world, to lay down ones life for their friends, and to walk a life of faithful dedication to Christ in utter love and obedience, now is that time.
Recall that Paul warned us that the houses would be shaken? Remember that our faith is tried by fire? Now is that time when what we honestly believe bears it's fruit. It will not be easy for anyone, but for those of us who are adjusting our perspective, taking root in the Word, and setting those feet forward by the will of God alone, these are the days we have been preparing for. This is call we have waiting to hear.
This is the reason we are all here now and not being swept up in the Rapture. Not now, that glorious transformation in the blink of an eye. Not yet. We have a 2,000 year old harvest to reap.

Brain Candy Tuesday

Wow! What an exciting election season! Money all over the place, revolution of the dusty, pull-the-lever variety heightening anticipation of a general congressional renewal at the expense of a party disgraced. And don't forget the dashing sweep upward into notoriety and legitimacy of the rabid and biting Tea Party movement. This is great stuff to watch! And that is what I did. I watched.
   It shouldn't surprise any intelligent television viewer that the "He Bad, Me Good" neanderthal mantras of deep-pocketed campaign committees and manipulating corporations has been all over the broadcast spectrum. Will this one win or that one boils down to one simple question--have we pummeled the electorate with enough propaganda nonsense to drive even more people away from the polls? That's the idea, after all. You don't want people actively participating, you want the fewest number of voters as possible, because that gives you best shot at winning. Think of it as a poker game. Your objective is to bring the odds of winning as much in your favor as possible, and when you put money down, you are doing so to drive players out, not bring players in.
   Every politician "knows" that the voting population is a pack of morons. These stupid animals would gnaw their own tongues off if they had nothing to talk about, right? And heck, you want to give the average citizen more credit, a bit higher of an average IQ rating, but they are just such suckers for anything you tell them! Well, best to keep those idiots away from a ballot because as well as being stupid, they are also highly emotional. If they get cut off at a traffic light between here and the polling station, they could be voting the other way in an instant! Which doesn't matter anyway because with all the rigging going on, the lower real numbers that come in the better. We want the zombie votes to be the swing, right?
   Of course, the comedic value of political incompetence goes way down when you drive around seeing closed up stores, empty houses, a surpising number of people walking or riding a bicycle, and the ever increasing price of...well, everything.

Begin Year Three

Yup, here we are still in economic decline, or at best, stagnation. Again, this is what we were all warned would would happen if Congress did not approve the $700 billion bail-out of 2008! Yeah. Well, they approved it, and here we are 24 months later(and change, really) with the same problem we had to begin with, only now that problem is getting worse and worse. Of course, the Federal Reserve feels that our problems aren't enough and he is creating more as we speak.
   Case in point--inflation. Now me, I always thought that paying more for something than you did yesterday was a bad thing, but according to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, it is actually a good thing and we should want more of it. Why?
   Hmmmm. Why? Good question.
   He doesn't have any good answer either. All he knows is that his mandate is make slaves out of Americans(north and south, mind you--we've been halfway there for a couple of hundred years), and ensure the profits of the entrenched business classes--which are the conglomerates and the bankers who made it all possible. Meanwhile, our nation, the US, goes further into debt and closer to complete economic ruin.
Isn't it funny that the same man who claimed Federal Reserve responsibility for the Great Depression of 1929-1941 continues to follow the same policies that perpetuate the Great Depression of 2008-2020?
   Yeah, you read it right--The Great Depression of 2008-2020!
   There is nothing new to learn in economics, folks. It's a math, not a science.

In The Trenches

As of this writing I am again layed-off from work. The writing was on the wall for the past few months, of course, but this year is the earliest that I have ever been let go. Likely they will call me back in January some time and we'll see what the next few months after that shape into.
   The new labor stats are all BULLSHIT by the way. They will not take into account the fact that 350,000 unemployed will be moving off of assistance, and not on account of finding a job. These will be the next wave of "99ers" that have officially exhausted their benefits. Why they do not rate as "unemployed" I am not sure--except that is one more accounting tool in the government toolbox they use to manipulate numbers and deceive the people as to how bad it really is.
   How bad is it really?
* technically, the US debt is around $50 trillion
* there are approximately 27 million unemployed workers today, which is an unemployment rate of 19.2%
* US forces in Afghanistan and Iraq continue to attempt to occupy nations against the will of fierce and persistent resistance--while contractors continue to feed from the public trough to the tune of several trillion dollars to date in these conflicts
* thanks to the newly announced cash infusion of almost $1 trillion by the Federal Reserve, we are that much closer to international abandonment of the dollar, the beginning of hyperinflation, and the utter collapse of society as a whole in the United States. Everybody say "Thank You, Ben!"
   "Thank you, Ben!"
