Will We Ever Learn?

Arlene from Israel

There are times when it must be doubted.

The Israeli government agreed last week to release 104 Palestinian Arabs in Israeli prisons since before Oslo; many are vicious killers of innocent Jews. Let’s leave aside for the moment whether this was a good idea or an abysmally bad one. The stated goal was to bring the PA to the table, for this was Abbas’ bottom line demand. (See Minister Silvan Shalom on this: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/170584 )

Without question, the decision by our government was made in response to considerable arm-twisting by the Obama administration; Kerry, in particular, was so eager for the “victory” of bringing the parties to the table.

Got it? To bring the PA to the table.

~~~~~~~~~~

Now let’s take a look at what Khaled Abu Toameh tells us about the Israeli agreement to release those prisoners (emphasis added):

“…the Palestinian Authority does not see the release of prisoners as a conciliatory move on the part of the Israeli government…

“Moreover, Palestinian Authority representatives do not believe there is a link between the release of prisoners and progress toward achieving peace between Israelis and Palestinians…
“Some Palestinians, including Abbas loyalists, see the release of a few dozen prisoners as a ‘bribe’ offered by US Secretary of State John Kerry to the Palestinian Authority president to entice him to return to the talks.

“These Palestinians point out that in return for this ‘bribe,’ Abbas was forced to drop his two other preconditions for resuming the peace talks: a full cessation of settlement construction and Israeli acceptance of the pre-1967 lines as the basis for a two-state solution.

“There are also Palestinians who see the release of about 100 prisoners as a ‘minor’ achievement for Abbas, especially in comparison to Hamas’s success in securing the release of more than 1000 inmates in return for kidnapped Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Schalit.

“‘Israel is not doing anyone a favor by releasing 100 prisoners,’ said a Fatah official in Ramallah. ‘While we welcome this decision, we do not see how it could help the peace process, particularly in light of the fact that there are more than 5,000 Palestinians who are still in prison.”

~~~~~~~~~~

The lesson Israel never seems to learn? That there is no winning with the Palestinian Arabs. That if you offer to sacrifice one finger they will be after you to cut off your hand at your wrist. That every time a gesture is made, the Arabs see Israel as weak. Not nice, not conciliatory, but weak.

A couple of comments here:

Note the discontent that the other two demands had been dropped. This serves as a confirmation of Netanyahu’s insistence that he had not agreed to a full freeze or to negotiations based on the ’67 line.

As to “the 5,000 Palestinians who are still in prison,” what Abbas had demanded was a specific list of 104 (already increased over his original demand by some 20 prisoners) who had committed their crimes before Oslo. No one said anything about letting all of them go.

~~~~~~~~~~

Back some days ago, when the decision to release of these prisoners was made, PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat commented that:

“This Israeli cabinet decision is an overdue step towards the implementation of the Sharm el Sheikh agreement of 1999, whereby Israel committed to release all the pre-Oslo prisoners.

“We welcome this decision 14 years later.”

http://www.islamweb.net/emainpage/index.php?page=articles&id=189067

In other words, it’s no big deal that Israel has done this now, as this is no more than Israel was obligated to 14 long years ago.

But, not surprisingly, Erekat distorted the truth.

The Sharm el Sheikh Memorandum did speak of Israeli release of pre-Oslo “prisoners.” But nowhere does it say ALL prisoners, and that is of critical importance in terms of diplomatic language. In fact, two releases of 200 and 150 prisoners were specified, after which a joint committee was assigned the task of “recommending further lists of names.”

See for yourself: http://www.knesset.gov.il/process/docs/sharm_eng.htm

And in the islamweb site listed above, it says that “Ghassan Khatib, a former Palestinian government spokesman, told Al Jazeera that…Israel ‘had released some Palestinian prisoners as part of the Oslo Accords [Sharm el-Sheikh Memorandum was part of Oslo], but kept 104.'”

~~~~~~~~~~

So it seems to me that Israel fulfilled its obligation under the terms of the Sharm el-Sheikh Memorandum. But what about the PA? (A silly question, I know.)

Actually, the Memorandum says, “The two Sides reaffirm their understanding that the negotiations on the Permanent Status will lead to the implementation of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338…”

Fascinating. SC Resolution 242 of 1967 (which is echoed by 338) calls for “Withdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict…” Here too, it does not say “from ALL territories.” And it acknowledged that “every State in the area’ had a “right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force.” (Emphasis added)

http://unispal.un.org/unispal.nsf/d744b47860e5c97e85256c40005d01d6/7d35e1f729df491c85256ee700686136?OpenDocument

Those who drafted this resolution were firm in their understanding that asking Israel to withdraw from all territories would not have provided her with secure boundaries.

You can see information on this, here:

http://www.sixdaywar.co.uk/6_day_war_aftermath_prof_un_resolution_242_pt6.htm

And yet the PA now carries on without end about the need for Israel to return to the ’67 line.

~~~~~~~~~~

I would add here that Security Council Resolution 242 does not refer to Palestinians or a Palestinian State. On the other side of the boundary [border], to be determined by negotiations, was Jordan.

What is more, the Sharm el-Sheikh Memorandum refers only to negotiations on “Permanent Status,” with nary a word about establishing a Palestinian state.

~~~~~~~~~~

Yesterday leaders of the PLO and Fatah were scheduled to meet in Ramallah in order to “assess the outcome” of the talks that had been held in Washington and discuss “preparations” for the next round of talks. Jamal Muhaissen, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, was cited by Khaled Abu Toameh as saying “the Palestinians continue to stick to their demand that the negotiations with Israel be conducted on the basis of the pre-’67 lines.”

http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/PA-leaders-to-discuss-second-round-of-peace-talks-set-for-August-14-322153

Those talks never materialized yesterday, however. Abbas cancelled the meeting without explanation and took himself to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for a surprise visit; he will be holding talks with King Abdullah.

Sources in Ramallah say the meeting might take place after the Muslim feast of Ad al-Fitr, which ends on Sunday. There was speculation that Abbas might have called off the meeting “because of growing opposition in the PLO and Fatah to his decision to resume the peace talks without a settlement freeze and Israeli acceptance of the pre-1967 lines as the basis for a two-state solution.”

http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/PA-leaders-to-discuss-second-round-of-peace-talks-set-for-August-14-322153

Any predictions as to what will or won’t happen on August 14?

~~~~~~~~~~

On Sunday, the Cabinet voted a new list of 600 communities and cities that have a national priority — which entitles them to enhanced state benefits. Among the communities listed were 90 “settlements,” 15 of them new to the list, including four communities that have just been legalized during the past year. They are considered eligible for priority consideration for security reasons. Other communities are on the list because of socio-economic status or location on the periphery of the country.

Along with the new “settlements” added to the list, were some kibbutzim and Arab towns.

Protests were voiced by members of left-central parties because of the inclusion of the new “settlements,” even though their status on the list does not include additional infrastructure or building benefits. That is, this list does not promote the expansion of “settlements” or the development of new ones, but rather, provides assistance to the residents. Needless to say, this did not sit well with the PA.

But hurray that the government is paying attention to communities beyond the Green Line.

~~~~~~~~~~

Iran.

We are beginning, perhaps, to see a crystallization of the situation, as it dawns on people, finally, that Obama is never, ever going to hit Iran.

Remember how he said that Assad would cross a red line if he used gas on the rebels? You see how the US has taken action since then. Well, Obama has also said, repeatedly, that it was US policy to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear nation. But you can take this statement with the same grain of salt. There will be no action to make sure it doesn’t happen. Not US action, at any rate.

A letter, signed by 76 Senators, was sent to Obama last Friday, and publicized on Monday.

Authored by Robert Menendez, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who serves on the Armed Services Committee, the letter urges Obama to be tough with Iran:

“Mr. President, we urge you to bring a renewed sense of urgency to the process.

“We need to understand quickly whether Tehran is at last ready to negotiate seriously…

“Iran has used negotiations in the past to stall for time, and in any event, (supreme leader Ayatollah Ali) Khamenei is the ultimate decision-maker for Iran’s nuclear program.

“Iran needs to understand that the time for diplomacy is nearing its end. We implore you to demand immediate serious moves on Iran’s part.”

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/170634

The sense of urgency is prompted by the swearing in of Hassan Rohani as the new president of Iran. Rohani has said he wants a less confrontational approach with the West. After being sworn in, he declared:

“The only path to interact with Iran is through negotiations on equal grounds, reciprocal trust-building, mutual respect and reducing hostilities.

“If you want a proper answer, do not speak with Iran with the language of sanctions but with the language of respect,” [for Iran will] “not surrender to sanctions, nor be threatened with war.”

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/170598

~~~~~~~~~~

The message from the White House on Sunday: Iran will find the United States a “willing partner” if Rohani is prepared for serious talks. And, of course, once he “convinces” himself that Rohani is serious, Obama will want to cut back sanctions because this is what the new Iranian president requests. You know, “good faith gestures” and all that.

Does he, could he, possibly believe that Rohani is to be taken at face value? Or is Obama, at his heart of hearts, such a coward (this is a distinct possibility) that he will not do confrontation no matter what? Or (and I ask this with full seriousness), is he content to play the game — knowing that with Iran negotiations are a game — and allow a nuclear Iran to come into being?

Whatever the answer (or answers) here, woe unto America and unto the world that Barack Obama is president of the United States.

~~~~~~~~~~

The 76 Senators who signed the letter to the president are not fooled by Rohani — who has said Iran would not abandon its nuclear program, which it sustains “on the basis of international law…We will not do away with the right of the nation.”

What does it mean that he is “prepared to enter serious negotiations,” if he has already declared his intent to continue Iran’s nuclear development?

~~~~~~~~~~

Neither is Israeli leadership fooled by this man.

Last week Yuval Steinitz, Minister of International Relations, spoke in an interview about the fact that Rohani “cheated” the West a decade ago:

“He is cunning, he’s charming and he will smile all the way to the bomb unless the Western world will do everything necessary to stop him.”

~~~~~~~~~~

See Dore Gold on Rohani, with regard to what Steinitz is referring to (emphasis added):

“…It is often forgotten that Rohani was national security adviser under President Khatami when Iran concealed its vast nuclear program from the West. It was in 2003 that the Shahab-3 missile, which Iran hopes to arm with a nuclear warhead, became operational in the Iranian armed forces. In other words, Rohani was part of a regime that hid its most sensitive nuclear facilities, which have served as the foundation of its drive for nuclear weapons…

“In 2004, Rohani actually spoke about his diplomatic strategy as a nuclear negotiator. He explained that he was trying to keep the Iranian nuclear file out of the hands of the United Nations Security Council…

“It was in that speech that he made his famous statement that ‘while we were talking to the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing equipment in parts of the facility in Isfahan…’

“The negotiations with the West, Rohani explained, allowed Iran to create a ‘calm environment,’ and as a result ‘we were able to complete the work in Isfahan.'”

http://www.algemeiner.com/2013/06/24/hassan-rohani-and-the-nuclear-question/

~~~~~~~~~~

And, most certainly, Prime Minister Netanyahu is not fooled. Meeting with 36 members of Congress — led by Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) — last night, he told them:

“Iran’s president said that pressure won’t work. Not true! The only thing that has worked in the last two decades is pressure. And the only thing that will work now is increased pressure. I have said that before and I’ll say it again, because that’s important to understand. You relent on the pressure, they will go all the way. You should sustain the pressure.”

http://www.imra.org.il/story.php3?id=61686

~~~~~~~~~~

And so, the question of the day is, Now What? The US is not going to act, and Iran is about to cross the red line in terms of nuclear development.

Back in May, Netanyahu warned that sanctions had not stopped Iran from continuing its nuclear enrichment program. And he said, “In parallel, it [Iran] is working on a heavy-water reactor to build a plutonium-based bomb.”

He called dealing with this the biggest challenge of our time,” but it seems no one was paying attention.

~~~~~~~~~~

Now the Wall Street Journal has come forward with a major report on this issue — citing US, UN and EU officials — that, according to the JPost, states:

“The Arak heavy water nuclear reactor in Iran will be capable of producing two nuclear bombs’ worth of weapons grade plutonium a year and will be capable of producing the material by next summer…”

“Regarding the capabilities of the Arak reactor, the report quoted an official based at the IAEA’s Vienna headquarters who said that it ‘really crept up on us.'”

http://www.jpost.com/Iranian-Threat/News/Report-Iran-Arak-facility-to-have-nuclear-weapons-grade-plutonium-by-next-summer

You weren’t listening!

~~~~~~~~~~

The bad news, then, is that Iran may be capable of producing a nuclear weapon in less than a year.

But there is a silver lining here. For the Arak heavy water reactor is above ground.

Credit: Reuters

I’ve written several times about the increasing difficulty for Israel in attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities because so much has been placed underground. Only the 30,000 pound bunker buster bombs possessed by the US would be able to do the full job now. But Obama will neither use those bombs against Iran nor give them to Israel to use.

Israel would be able to hit some of the underground facilities — and now, the above ground reactor, being utilized by Iran to speed things up, as well.

There is a reasonable speculation that this may factor into Netanyahu’s decision on what to do, and when to do it:

“The report cited current and former US officials who said an Israeli strike on Arak would likely have to take place prior to Iran introducing nuclear materials into the facility, in order to prevent an enormous environmental disaster.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Netanyahu has spoken for so long, and with such clear vision, about the dangers of a nuclear Iran. And yet, even as we’ve inched closer to the deadline, he has not given the word to act. There is a widespread and very reasonable assumption that Obama is the reason.

When push comes to shove, it may well be that whether or not Netanyahu finally acts is dependent not upon his assessment as to whether he should do so, but rather upon his ability to tell Obama where to get off. His spine — Heaven help us — must be strong enough to defy Obama’s warnings and machinations. Perhaps in this instance, because he truly understands the ultimate consequences, he will stand up as he must. Many is the time that he has said an Iran with nuclear weapons capability would constitute an “existential threat” to Israel.

~~~~~~~~~~

A senior Israeli official (unnamed) told Israel Radio yesterday that, “Israel is capable of carrying out a unilateral strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities without the aid of the United States,” although such an attack would be less effective than a US attack.

~~~~~~~~~

And last, for now, on the subject, from an Army Radio interview of Amos Yadlin, head of IDF Intelligence from 2006 to 2010.

Credit: thinkprogress

“In 2012, the [Americans’] red light was as red as it can get, the brightest red. But the music I’m hearing lately from Washington says, ‘If this is truly an overriding Israeli security interest, and you think you want to strike,’ then the light hasn’t changed to green, I think, bit it’s definitely yellow.”

Reports Haviv Rettig Gur in the Times of Israel, “Yadlin is thought to be close to parts of the US defense establishment. He served as Israel’s military attache in Washington from 2004 to 2006, and was a Kay Fellow in Israeli national security at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in 2011.”

“In 2012 the [Americans’] red light was as red as it can get, the brightest red. But the music I’m hearing lately from Washington says, ‘If this is truly an overriding Israeli security interest, and you think you want to strike,’ then the light hasn’t changed to green, I think, but it’s definitely yellow.”

http://www.timesofisrael.com/former-idf-intel-chief-us-coming-around-on-iran-strike/

~~~~~~~~~~

Could Yadlin be right? A yellow light would be much easier for Netanyahu to buck than a bright red one. And in the end we would be doing a huge favor for Obama.

~~~~~~~~~~

With all of the above, I think it’s important to end with a piece of good news designed to bring a smile:

The Ramat Gan Safari Park (near Tel Aviv) has a new-born Asian elephant. Here it is, with its mother La Belle and grandmother La Petite, just a few hours after its birth last Friday. The baby, as yet unnamed, is thought to be female.

The New Jersey Rotunda

Blasted Fools

I’ve been talking about Republicans that once had appeal to Tea Party people, of which I am one of a certain stripe. I say once had appeal, because they have proven to be either charlatans, imposters or have fallen victim to Potomac Fever.

That would be Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte (didn’t take her very long to destroy her brand) and many others of which the most notable example of late is Chris Christie. It’s time for him to take his rightful place in the Blasted Fools Hall of Shame. I’ll admit he had me snowed when he first came across my radar screen a few years back. I liked his gruff response to whiny and persistent reporters from the biased legacy media. I’d compare his trajectory from someone who talked the talk of a conservative (if never a social conservative) fairly well, to that of former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger who left office in disgrace.

Schwarzenegger romanced conservatives in California and even attempted some pretty laudable reforms, but once he got smacked down by the public employee unions, he didn’t get back up and roll up his sleeves for the next round, but instead – curled up in a ball like a little girly man and then went on a ludicrous fence mending tour with our enemies.

That’s right – I consider progressives in California, my enemies. They’ve turned the Golden State into the Pot Metal State. When I travel, I don’t even admit I live here. Why would I want to start an acquaintence off with a stranger on such bad footing? I say Arizona or Nebraska or something like that. So when Chris Christie starts doing the same thing as Ahhhhnold, in New Jersey, I recognize it. That’s why it didn’t come as much of a shock. Christie is a RINO now, if he ever wasn’t. Aside from the rotundity, you could have dropped him in the Governor’s office in Massachusetts during Romney’s term and no one would have known the difference.

But I want to talk about this video from Sunday’s ABC News gabfest, in which George Will and the other participants of the rectangular table panel, opine about the Chris Christie / Rand Paul feud. George Will, is a mostly unsung conservative icon – if he’s an icon at all. But in my book, he is. In my opinion, the rest of the panel on this ABC News ‘This Week’, seem like little, squeaky cat toys compared to him. The first two (talking heads) weren’t bad, but when you get a little further into it, you get to the useless idiots like what’s her face, the chick named after a prison – what is it, oh yes, Soledad O’Brien – it’s a waste of o2. I was able to find a video where the blubbering progress-o-bots were edited out. You’re welcome.

George Will points out and the other gentlemen, neither of which I’m familiar with – reaffirm, that Libertarian minded people are ramping up their influence in the GOP. This is very true. It is because the ‘independent conservative’ is in ascendance and the NeoCons are receding into the margins – although they are still struggling to hang on and in doing so, are adopting the shape shifting morph of RINO-cons. I’m thinking McCain, Graham-cracker and among others, the Senator from Georgia, Saxby Chambliss. They’ll be retired from the Senate most ungracefully. That is to say, they’ll go kicking and screaming and foaming at the mouth like possessed individuals. Count on it, but go they must. As brother Jesse says, “if not now, when?”. The sooner the better, in any event.

Chris Christie reveals himself to be a big government politician with an R next to his name. There’s not much difference between one of those and a Governor with a D next to his name – it’s merely a slight degree of proportion. Christie’s off my list, not that he was ever seriously on it, but now that he’s shown his colors, I’m for sure, done with him. Moral of the story, as the Apostle Timothy says, “Lay hands suddenly on no man”. Watch them and discern if their deeds line up with their talk. Good advice for judging “Poets, Priests and Politicians who have words to thank for their positions”.

Government orders 90% of population reduced to save Mother Earth and it soon won’t be a joke to laugh at.

By: Nelson Abdullah
Conscience of a Conservative

The crackpots finally took over the insane asylum. Unfortunately for us, they were not planning on making a horror movie, they were taking over the government. Every government in the entire world! Our World. AGENDA 21 is real.

The Human Race has been declared a hostile species and a threat to the planet: the environmentalists have said so. Obama’s buddy Cass Sunstein, argues strongly for human euthanasia. “…what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. …” Dave Foreman, Co-Founder of Earth First: “We humans have become a disease, the Humanpox.” Roger Martin, environmental activist, “Fewer people mean better lives.” Obamacare death panels. Democrat strategist Steven Rattner said, “We need death panels…until we start allocating health care resources more prudently—rationing, by its proper name…” And now the United Nations has listened to the crackpots and has created Agenda 21.

Headline in a British newspaper

Click to display full size.

Dear Patriotic Ladies & Gentlemen,

We regret to inform you that you have been targeted for extinction. The United Nations has decided that you and your offspring are a threat to Mother Earth, and you must be terminated.

Those of you who are mercifully still allowed to live will have to relocate to a designated zone, and you will only be allowed to travel within the corridors outlined by the United Nations, as depicted on the above map.

This is for the good of the Earth, and you must put aside all individual choice and thought and go along with what the experts have deemed necessary in order to save our planet.

Agenda 21’s manual proclaims that:

Global warming, the depletion of fuel, water, food, and the like, is the direct cause of human intervention. The real enemy is humanity itself. The damage people cause the planet is a function of demographics equal to the degree of development. The ecological crisis was really the population crisis. Cut the population by ninety-plus percent and you stop injuring the earth by an equal amount.”

Agenda 21 is a threat to humanity, freedom and our Constitution. Fax your representatives right now and tell them to shut down this creepy international intrusion and preserve the United States of America!

You may recall Conservative Daily has run a series of articles on Agenda 21 and its indoctrination program known as Common Core, but never have we connected all the dots so definitively for you. The more we research this, the more frightened we become.

The premise is this: “Sustainability” proponents believe that the Earth is under an imminent threat from humans, and therefore humanity must be controlled, limited and ultimately eliminated. The United States of America and other Westernized nations are considered especially dangerous, because our technology, our lifestyles and our free choice consume resources that radical environmentalists believe should only be used by animals and nature.

Agenda 21 lists the following as NOT sustainable: Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.

In their own words, these radical “new thinkers” tell you everything you need to know about their agenda. Pay close attention:

Dave Foreman, Co-Founder of Earth First: “We humans have become a disease, the Humanpox.”

Roger Martin, environmental activist, “Fewer people mean better lives.”

Professor Philip Cafaro of Colorado State University, “Ending human population growth is almost certainly a necessary (but not sufficient) condition for preventing catastrophic global climate change.”

Thomas Ferguson, former State Department official: “There is a single theme behind all our work–we must reduce population levels. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it…”

But how can they assure that humans are wiped out?

Hello, Obamacare death panels. Democrat strategist Steven Rattner said, “We need death panels…until we start allocating health care resources more prudently—rationing, by its proper name—the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”

Barack Obama’s science advisor John Holdren advocates a “program of sterilizing women after their second or third child.” And this could be accomplished, he proposes, by “the development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired…The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

Is it adding up for you yet? Are you beginning to see how the dots are connected?

Rahm Emanuel’s brother Dr. Ezekial Emanuel received 2009 stimulus funds for his research council. Emanuel is a huge proponent of rationing care for the elderly and disabled. Obama advisor Cass Sunstein is known for his advocacy of human euthanasia and argues that human life varies in value. Science czar John Holdren states in his book Ecoscience, “To provide a high quality of life for all, there must be fewer people.”

These are the people the President of the United States surrounds himself with, because he agrees with their views and admires their philosophies.

If you are alarmed by this radical agenda, please fax Congress right now and tell them to STOP the United Nations program known as Agenda 21, and preserve the freedom and sovereignty of the United States! Don’t let this dangerous program continue to spread throughout our country.

Think of how fondly the Democrats praise Planned Parenthood, how Obama thanks them for doing great work. The world is prepared to KILL OUR CHILDREN if it means the poor, fragile Mother Earth would live to see another minute.

Listen to what a couple of medical ethicists from Oxford University have to say about killing off our population (the word ethics being associated with any of these views is simply appalling): “…what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … [W]e propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be.”

This is the true war on women. Agenda 21 must be exposed in every city in America and stopped, before it is too late to turn back. Send a message now and end this radical and dangerous plan.

The problem with all this anxiety over population control is that it’s not necessary: the population is not exploding at alarming levels; birth rates are on the decline. But as Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace says, “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”

Slate.com ran an article in January of this year reporting, “according to experts’ best estimates, the total population of Earth will stop growing within the lifespan of people alive today. And then it will fall. This is a counterintuitive notion in the United States, where we’ve heard often and loudly that world population growth is a perilous and perhaps unavoidable threat to our future as a species.”

The article goes on to note that “population decline is a very familiar concept in the rest of the developed world, where fertility has long since fallen far below the 2.1 live births per woman required to maintain population equilibrium.”

Germany, Spain, Western Europe, Russia, and China…all the numbers suggest a declining population, in some places by as much as HALF.

But, this information is inconvenient. Sustainability is the back door through which socialism will take over. And who will administer all this humanitarian justice? The enlightened elitists, of course. James Lovelock told the UK’s Guardian, “Democracy must be put on hold” in order to fight global warming and only “a few people with authority” should rule the Earth until we get this crisis under control.”

Professor Maurice King believes that, “Global sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”

You mean nothing to these elitists, who believe that “human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs” – that is from John Davis, of the Earth First Journal.

On August 13th Obama is scheduled to give a speech asking for MORE TAXPAYER MONEY to combat climate control.

In essence, he is asking you to sign your own death warrant.

And in case you don’t see the full picture Obama and the globalists are trying to paint for you, you soon will. Obama is hiring a “Behavioral Insights Team” that will look for ways to subtly influence your behavior. This “nudge” program is based on a similar project implemented in England, where people were encouraged to sign up for retirement benefits, or insulate their homes better. It is based on a 2008 book by Obama’s buddy Cass Sunstein, who we told you above argues strongly for human euthanasia.

As a proud American citizen, you should be very frightened right now to see the big picture of what is happening. The environmentalists have taken over the nation’s discourse and are infiltrating our schools as we speak with the educational program known as Common Core. We are all going to be conditioned to believe as Reed Noss of the Wildlands Project that, “The native ecosystems and the collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans.”

Once the humans are contained, confined, and many of them starved off or aborted, the birds and bees and trees can live harmoniously and all will be right with the planet.

Conservative Daily will continue to get the message out about these insidious programs and we will fight tooth and nail against Agenda 21.

Please join us in this fight. Fax your representatives now and tell them Agenda 21 is a socialist farce and you will not accept its implementation in the United States of America.

Sincerely,
Tony Adkins

Watcher’s Council Nominations – Happy Birthday, Mr. President Edition

The Watcher’s Council

This Sunday was President Obama’s 52nd birthday (I believe) and it’s only fitting that we recognize the occasion here at the Watcher’s Council.

It’s become quite obvious over the last 5 years that our president has a leadership style unique in our history, one that involves a high level of personal responsibility:

His hard work on our behalf is legendary:

So is his cool. I mean, who else would have the elan to announce a major al-Qaeda threat this weekend, then take off to go golfing and leave it to his team to handle, knowing the country was in good hands!

His entire administration has been characterized by a transparency unique in American history, just like he promised us:

Yes, this is one special president and the American people are not worthy of his leadership. Happy birthday, sir!

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

Council News:

This week, Ask Marion, Gates of Vienna and Wolf Howling took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning.

Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members, while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have this week…

Prepare this August Like September will Hit the Fan

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid?
If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it?
Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
A lion has roared!
Who will not fear?
The Lord God has spoken!
Who can but prophesy?
– Amos 3:6-8

Remember the disturbances you’ve ever had, in your stomach or intestines? Usually, such a thing will precede a major event, in the body. There are numerous angles one can take into this, but the title says it. I suggest we be prepared. Then, even if things do not get critical in one way or another, we will still be ready. The trendlines are hardly lifelines.

In the body of the whole, the greed-and-derivatives-sick banking systems of our world are suffering more and more upheaval, lately. And America’s entire intelligence, military, and law enforcement supercomplex has been undergoing great if gradual upheavals, both seen and unseen, revealing that those in these services are being imposed upon to be something other than classic servants of the People.

I believe it should be clear to all who are looking in: these movings and shakings are not being wrought by mere happenstance. Rather, people who hold a great deal of power are working to bring their great obstacle and prize, the sovereign thus free United States of America, into conditions of disruption, despair, and defeat, in order to gain ultimate, global power.

However, if we take heed and take action, I believe we may take heart. Their own evil works will be exposed as they enfold, and the worst calamity is meant by the Highest Power, to come down upon the heads of these perpetrators, themselves. That is how I understand it. Let us pray and apply ourselves for that to be a judgment of truly thorough effect and then, for our greater preparations to be solutions to prevent a regrouping by them, whether sooner or later.

We have shown significant information and signals about this previously and have more to tell. It is time to be prepped in all that means for each in his own unique situation: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally, circumstantially, economically, and civilly/politically, O Sovereign American Citizens.

For those who are amenable and interested, I will refer as I have previously, to a new, Bible-adhering prophecy, by someone whose works I have carefully evaluated for years and focused upon, out of quite a large and noisy field: Phyllis Ford. And this time I will also show corroborative testimony including personal reflections by her daughter, Rachel, also gifted in this way. (By far, most on the opining side of Rachel message, I immediately accede, and some of it I would find fruit for discussion.) I also keep in mind that we Christians are fallible; even gifted Christians are. And while God’s true word is infallible, sometimes prophecy is conditional – especially when it is an alert for prayer, doubly so, when a call to repentance (which means turning). Also, as for a prophet, so with a hearer, it is important to leave open what God leaves open and not to fill in the blanks, ourselves. God lives in the print and also in the spaces. Timing is often the trickiest matter to understand.

For those who are not interested in all that, I will precede it with this video, from a watchman of another kind. So, here’s an example of the alerts we’re hearing, from those keeping tabs:

And here are missives from pastoral teacher and prophet, Phyllis Ford (CarpentersTouch.org) followed by her daughter Rachel’s, both of Bible-based Christian belief and tradition, including the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Word of the Lord for August 2013 by Prophetess Phyllis Ford

August 1, 2013

As I sought the Lord for this coming month of August I begin to understand that this month is definitely preparation and prayer planning for the coming days and months ahead. The greatest urgency came up in my spirit for the month of September 2013. So I continued to wait and even allowing the time to pass with confirmation from others, on what was evident in my heart from the Lord. I guess I was holding out for greater clarity and more information as to why we would see such warnings and hear of greater shakings than we have already experienced. But it is evident that we are in the beginning of sorrows so think it not strange that these things are coming upon the land.

The way I understand it is that the Lord is giving His people a short window of time to prepare their hearts at the advent of serious things that are about to take place in the land and upon the people. August will provide much light upon the times we are in and what is being required of us.

God’s hand is also extended to bring help, resolve and reconciliation to our lives. As we receive this grace we should reverence with grateful hearts and minds and be willing to help others to receive the same. It’s like placing the breathing apparatus that we are told to put on our face in time of danger while on a plane and once we have put ours on then we make sure to help the one beside us in order to secure their safety as well. What we do this month is certainly up to us. But if we think the level of attack has been heavier than usual know that it has been to distract and to keep us off focus so that we won’t know the seriousness of the hour that we are in. We must take heed. This is a time to stay alert, stay awake, stay observant before the presence of the Lord.

HE is calling us in, calling us up and calling us out from where we are. If you have already made this transition then you will also be responsible to help others who may not understand where they are. The first three weeks of this month should be a time where diligence is the order of the day. We should be watching and praying while moving forth to accomplish things that we have previously allowed to linger behind. So by tying up loose ends, completing current assignments while waiting for the next set of instructions should be a reality in the sight of a fast paced hour. The last week of August needs to find us quiet before the Father getting the necessary keys right before another major shaking. This will be a time where things that have been going on for some time have run its course and some stark realities will be setting in.

The Lord shared three analogies with me.

1. When a storm is approaching those who are in the field, sensing the coming storm will run into the place of safety until the storm passes over. Where the storm disperses others, those who belong to the house come together and are united. Isaiah 26: 20 “Come, my people, enter into your rooms And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while Until indignation runs its course.”

2. The prayer strategy has shifted and there is a specific reason–we must pray forth in agreement with God’s agenda in the earth and not overly focus on the works of the enemy. Because God is about to come from His place and deal with the enemies of our day. There is a another major shaking about to occur. It is better to focus on what He is preparing for his people. (This is a battle that we will not fight at this time.) (Stand Ye Still) (2 Chronicles 20:17). So our prayer is coming into agreement with the Lord’s agenda and will for us. What has He prepared for those who have been faithful unto Him. Praying in agreement with the answers/resolves and not just fighting the problems. So we set our sights on what the Lord has prepared and provided. (This is not to say that we are not ignorant of the enemies devices.) This is a faith stand and our strength lies in God’s will.

3. He gave me the third analogy in confirmation to the second analogy through a scripture which reiterated his point. 1 Corinthians 16:9 “For a great door and effectual is opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” His word to me concerning this hour was, tell my people to keep their faith strong concerning the great door (and subsequent doors), which is effectual (powerful) and know that I will help them to overcome the adversaries. The more we pray concerning the door and the more we will know concerning what is going on our behalf and the more we will position ourselves going through the door. The Lord is saying, do not spend your time–fearing, fighting and focusing on the adversaries but fix your eyes upon what I have prepared for you.

These are His words:

“I am opening up a myriad of doors in this hour. I am providing entry ways into deeper levels of truth and understanding for you to gain access and come into a renewed place of purpose for what I have called you for in this time. Some of these doors are entry ways into a greater growth and maturity that—which is of a pure stream without any compromise. This light is to help you see through dark places and walk even closer than you are now so that you may accomplish the things that are required for you along your journey. So stay before me.”

“There are some of you, who need to escape from the things of the past, the enemies of their soul which have become a hindrance to their lives in going further. These things can arrest your faith and keep you from moving in pace for key advancement even cloud your thinking so that you will not be able to correctly discern the timing that you should implement certain task that include important kingdom work right now. This is not the time, nor the hour to just allow the evils of the day to overtake your mind because I have provided ways for you now to breakthrough, to break out, even break down the resistance that is ahead of you.”

“Remain sober-minded, vigilant, stay free from the schemes that the enemy is waging against you—some are even within the recesses of your own mind, based on fears of your future along with hurt feelings that will try to plague you and entangled you. You must cast down every imagination —every high thing—even every high place—that has tried to exalt itself above me, says the Lord. Bring into captive every disillusion that has to weaken you with a fainted heart and a troubled mind.”

“Press in now to receive the strength and grace for the battle ahead that is being waged and continue to move forward. Because it is time to move forward, move beyond, move on, ……..allow your faith to take you into the places you need to go. Advance beyond where you are now. I have provided for you the door–it is great, it is mighty, it has power. The very steps that take now will order a sound that will break down the resistance as you advance. Reach up and reach out. Reach up to a new standard that is now in place–not one of complacency but one that is joined with my life and my light. A standard that will set the order for the course for the next three years.”

“Know that I am preparing in you to be a well of answers that can bring resolution, even answers to prayers, and to hear the cries for help that will come out from the door of salvation looking for a people to lead them and show them the way. Much of what you are seeing now has to do with the awareness that the hour brings and the conditions of the people who have been held captive by evil mindsets and governing systems that will no longer be relevant by the end of the year. This is the precursor of the coming day but know with it comes my light that will shine brightly in the midst, to show you what to do, where to go, and even how to avoid during this time. Stay in watch mode–do not allow yourselves to fall into to slumber. Do not let fear overtake your heart, do not let anything to get your focus—even the coming provision, but keep your eyes upon me says the Lord as I direct your path before you. With the path will come my purposes and with my purposes will come the process.”

“So enter in, examine your own heart, humble yourselves before me. For I will not only open up doors but the windows of heaven are opened unto you, even in the midst of great judgment and great shaking. Windows of escape will come for those who have laboured in much grace without complaint but with faith as I did for Paul in Damascus and you will be safe in a time of trouble. I will pour out my arrows of deliverance unto my people in certain regions because I have heard their cries. Windows that will work out a plan of victory for this hour, windows that will reach up above the heavens, so see what I am providing in my house–to utilize, to know, and to understand that which I have for you to carry what you need to war and to win over the lies and deceits of the devil.” “Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place, To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.” (Isaiah 26: 20-21)

These were the other scriptures:

Isaiah 24:18 “He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth are shaken.”

2 Corinthians 11:33 “But I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands.”

Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”

Isaiah 26:20-21 was the last thing the Lord repeated. It is a warning to us all in this hour.

Rachel Elizabeth’s assessment:

It’s Time to Open Up Your Spiritual Eyes — By: Rachel Elisabeth

July 26, 2013

The Lord spoke to me a few months ago concerning the last 4 months of this year and January 2014. This is an exert from what He spoke to me: He said that during this time “…the world will begin to unravel before our very eyes. Every problem the world is secretly facing will surface and peak during this time. Tensions will rise and bubble over. Turmoil and destruction will flow from my cup of furry against the nations of this world.”

I have been studying God’s word and the economic and political world crisis that awaits us for years. I have been reading articles by some of the brightest and smartest minds in the world. I don’t know everything there is to know. For there is always more to be revealed. One thing I can assure you of is that God’s word and our political & economic future are in alignment. You would be shocked at the level information being released to us if we know where to look. Some of the world’s top economist after speaking the truth of what’s to come have taken their families and went into hiding. Hundreds of heads of banks all over world resigned last year. Many banking CEOs switched to working from home. You may think what does this have to do with me, but this has much more to do with you than you know. What did they find out that we don’t already know? What were they so afraid of? Why is the media being so selective in the information it shares with us (while the movie industry mentally prepares us for new realities)?

Everyday decisions are being made without our knowledge or permission. Decisions about our travel access, economy and political future. For example: New chips have been approved to be put in all passports by one of the UN appointed committees. This policy is already active. From now on all newly issued passports will have chips in them to that make tracking easier. Each carrying a distinct symbol to let them know this passport carries a tracking chip. They have already approved a plan to have all citizens of the countries of the UN to turn in all old passports by a certain date and get a new one carrying the chip. After the grace period allowed it will be mandatory everyone switches over to the new passport in order to travel.

Let’s open our eyes on this one. The world will be touched by what awaits us and we can’t continue to ignore the truth. Some of you are somewhat aware and are already angry. It’s easy to be upset when you see what’s really going on, but I urge you to be at peace so that you do not miss the solution while panicking over the problem.

The group that truly founded this nation is now trying to divide it. The few who made the financial system we all live by are now trying to destroy. They see now that only by bringing all of our nations (around the world) into a place of great devastation civilly, economically, and physically they can get an opportunity to create a stronger system/kingdom. A system that will give birth to the world’s so called war remedy…the anti-Christ. But it will not happen overnight even though their plans are coming to life before us now. This will be a system/kingdom based on a false foundation of unity and peace. It will be a system that deceives many to give over their control while others who know better are forced to. Those times will be times where we must know the bible by heart and move in wisdom and obedience to God’s will.

See when many world crisis unfold (sooner than most realize) those in control will call for the creation of a unified world with a new unified economical system. (Be AWARE! There are nations that have already started to request things publicly before the world court that show their support of a unified economic system. Both Russia and China have called for the creation of a global currency.) See they destroyed this system on purpose so they can establish a stronger one with fewer freedoms. By simply saying the old system failed because there were too many freedoms they can have the level of control they want in the new one. They will deceive by simply telling us that all mankind must unite and stick together to survive this worlds current crisis. Many in their desperation will just eat it up. Most will find themselves forced to comply while others with no resources have to comply to live.

A lot of people are mad at certain leaders all around the world. Most of them if not all of them were preselected by people who carry so much power you wouldn’t know them because they don’t want you to know them. The last few weeks were a major phase of their plan. A divided nation is the perfect foundation for them to make this thing work. We are actually late. Nations all over the world have been divided by the powers that be way before us. There are a series of events that will take place. Posting about leaders that are merely puppets or scapegoats won’t change anything. Actually we should have prayed for them, but we were too blinded by emotions to see that real ones we needed to be worried about were the ones we’ve never even seen before. Now here we are. Playing into their hands. Giving them the perfect scenario to provoke us to further anger. So that we will be too blind to prepare for what’s next. DO NOT be fooled. Cling to balance, peace, & wisdom. Keep your eyes on God!

For the plan that they thought would cost them few will cost them many. They will call forth the wrath of God and they will see His judgement. There will be much loss. Know that there are many high ups that have no idea this is coming. Some of the economic and banking big boys have just figured it out this past year. See the plan only works if few know so that few can control the situation. A lot of the politic division we see is all apart of seeds sown to ensure the division of our nation. The crazy thing is we brought much of this on ourselves as a nation. We worshiped money and clung to sin. We were arrogant and foolish. We were selfish and considered not the consequences. So it should be no surprise that God Himself wants them to destroy the system we so worshiped.

Even if what follows will be a kingdom unlike any we have ever seen. (It will set the stage to fulfill this scripture: “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise : and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.”. Daniel 7:24) Ten major kingdoms/countries will gather and form one kingdom unlike any kingdom before it. Only from that one kingdom that “devours” (gains control of the world) can the anti-christ come forth. (Don’t be foolish it is no one in visible authority NOW. He’s unlike anything you may have imagined and he is a peacemaker. A man carrying so many good attributes that only those that can discern the intentions of his kind words will know who he truly is. Many will thank God for sending this man to bring peace and healing to the world without realizing THIS IS THE ANTI-CHRIST. This why you must stay sharp! Study and pray!

What will be will be, but what does GOD want you to do? If you really wanna help serve your purpose. See to it that your destiny (ONE DAY) is fulfilled, No Matter What. We all have a part to play. So play yours! Though they will finish what they started and the world as we know it will change greatly know God will have accomplished many things of His own. Don’t fight the process. These things must happen. We are in a time where we can feel a shift but they will soon reassure us with a false sense of peace and safety. When they say that everything has never been better prepare yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually. When that happens…Be Ready! For all the division and anger they created in this hour will boil over and create a dangerous chain reaction. And when it seems to we are on top again we will find ourselves in free fall as things collapse around us. There will be no escaping it. As this thing grows there will be no place in the world that will not be touched. Though some places will be effected less than others. This is why you must be ready to hear the voice of God unlike ever before. For He will be speaking and guiding His people during this time. (“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3) And when this finally comes to pass the survivors of this mess will have a chance to do great things in the name of our God. There is much to do even now. If we can disconnect from the foolishness that distracts us. We can connect to God and find out what He wants us to do.

BE ENCOURAGED! For when the problem presented itself so did the wisdom and provision needed to get through it.

I didn’t know who to tag so feel free to SHARE it. 🙂 #SoberMinded #TrustingInGod

Please allow me to suggest looking into these words more than once again, over the next few weeks and months. Also look in to see what has been already recorded and what will be added, here in Gulag Bound, and in CarpentersTouch.org – and above all, what has already been furnished at great expense in the Bible.

And ask the Lord for yourself, what He is doing – especially with you!
