My warning rapture dream
On June 1, 2015 I had a dream I felt was a warning, rapture dream. I dreamt of large tidal waves, and then thieves breaking into my home. This is being shared because I felt on my heart an urgency to share and to plead with everyone to be ready because the Lord is returning soon.

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes. Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left. Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken the other left. So you, too must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. Understand this: if a homeowner kew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected. ( Matthew 24:37-44 NLT).

In the last days, ‘God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants-men and women alike-and they will prophesy. ( Acts 2:17-18 )

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never by disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.” ( Romans 10:9-13 NLT)

Global Warming Hoax Quote

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat with demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned namely mistaking systems for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.

Obedience, Fasting and Prayer

The Road


This is from my book The First Time I Rode a Freight Train & other hitchhiking stories, page 51:

“‘The monastic way is very different. Obedience, fasting and prayer are laughed at, yet only through them lies the way to real, true freedom. I cut off my superfluous and unnecessary desires, I subdue my proud and wanton will and chastise it with obedience, and with God’s help I attain freedom of spirit and with it spiritual joy.'”

[excerpt from The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky; Book VI, “The Russian Monk”]


“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

“Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results…

Being Fed

The Road


This is from the blog Grace and Truth:

When once a hunger had been born in me for God’s presence then, naturally, I sought to be fed.  The revelation of our own spiritual bankruptcy, whether by food shortage or some sort of crisis, is the catalyst for the formation of a hunger for God.  When we are able to see our spiritual bankruptcy it is then that we can truly seek God in the way He should be sought.  Not as a means to an end, or to fulfill an agenda of our own but by loving Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.  It is because we have seen that without Him we are starving and dying, and in the desperation of soul-hunger we begin to seek after the Bread of Life.  And that’s what I did.  Suddenly the temporal, physical things that used to bring me…

Mark Twain on Jews

If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one quarter of one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.

His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine and abstruse learning are also very out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world in all ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be excused for it. The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greeks and Romans followed and made a vast noise, and they were gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, and have vanished.

The Jew saw them all, survived them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmaties, of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert but aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jews; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?

I. Top Vatican Official Believes World Is Overburdened by 6 Billion People!

Pope Francis thus joins the ranks of the “Georgia Guidestones” in calling for Draconian population reduction!

NEWS BRIEF: “Vatican Speaker on Climate Thinks There are 6 Billion Too Many of Us”, Breitbart News, 12 June 2015

“One of the speakers slated for the Vatican rollout of the long-awaited Papal document on climate change once said the earth is overpopulated by at least 6 billion people. The teaching document, called an encyclical, is scheduled for release on June 18 at Vatican City. Perhaps with the exception of the 1968 encyclical on contraception, no Vatican document has been greeted with such anticipation.”

“The political left is hoping for a document that ties belief in global warming to a religious obligation.”

Therefore, the Roman Catholic Pope is going to weigh in on this ridiculous debate over Climate Change. Since he is the head of 1.2 billion Catholics in the world today, his support of Climate Change is critically important. If Pope Francis not only endorses the concept of Climate Change, but declares that Catholics have a “moral obligation” to support efforts to address Climate Change, then a corner might have been turned in this debate. This Papal document is very, very important.

Pope Francis has already tipped his hand in the direction in which his document will go by appointing a most radical Population Reduction advocate to the list of Vatican speakers who will defend the Pope’s decision once it is published.

“The choice of Professor John Schnellnhuber, founding director of the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, as one of three presenters may be giving the left added hope and giving giving skeptics severe heartburn. He has been described as one of the more aggressive scientists on the question of man-made global warming. In a talk given to what’s described as the ‘failed’ 2009 Copenhagen climate conference, reported in the New York Times, Schnellnhuber, who has advised German President Angela Merkel and is a visiting professor at Oxford, said of global warming: ‘In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people’.”

This Vatican official truly believes the “carrying capacity” of Earth is less than 1 billion people! This fact means that 6 billion people are going to be eradicated, and rather quickly, by radical means. Listen to New Age author, Jeremy Rifkin, describe how such a dramatic reduction in global population must be achieved.

“This change, says Rifkin, will require a radical ‘new world view’, and he urges draconian measures to achieve this new thinking. He says, ‘The radical change in world view required to make this transition will have to be accomplished overnight. There will be no time for polite debate, subtle compromise, or monetary equivocation. To succeed will require a zealous determination, a militancy, if you will, of Herculean proportions’.” (“”Entropy: A New World View”, p.186, Emphasis added).

What are some of the ways in which the Global Elite plan to accomplish a reduction of mankind “overnight”?

Global Warfare — carried out under the leadership of the new Masonic Christ (Antichrist), Weapons of Mass Destruction will be unleashed against those populations backward enough that they cannot plug into the cashless system of the New World Order.

“Of course, a very short but very deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations was contemplated and to tell you the truth, was not ruled out … can you imagine what will happen if Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake, New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bomb, World War III breaks out in the Middle East, the banks and the stock markets collapse, Extraterrestrials land on the White House lawn, food disappears from the markets, some people disappear, the Messiah presents himself to the world, and all in a very short period of time?” [“Behold A Pale Horse”, by William Cooper, p. 167, 177]


Economic Upheaval and Famine is the rider of the Third Horseman of the Apocalypse and he brings inflation and famine on an unprecedented scale.

Severe warfare seems to always bring economic upheavel and inflation and famine in its wake. Therefore, we should not be too surprised to learn that world population will be dramatically and quickly reduced with these forces sweeping the Earth, literally forcing a dramatic drop in world population “overnight”!

This famine will follow the Red Horse of War which rode out of Heaven before him.

Bio-engineered diseases and bio-chemical weapons — Emergent Diseases and Biochemical Warfare are unleashed upon the world with the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse. Listen to the wording of Bible Prophecy:

“There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (plagues: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror …” (Luke 21:11; Amplified Bible Commentary)

It is disconcerting to realize that the forces arrayed right now, poised to sweep one day soon across the globe, are precisely what Jesus’ prophecy foretells.

“Pestilences, plagues: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases”

Therefore, we find it very informative that a top official to the future False Prophet (Pope Francis) is advocating precisely the kind of draconian drop in world population the only the Georgia Guidestones dare predict.


23 Things You Need To Know About Coffee



1. Banned Coffee
In 1675, the King of England banned coffee houses, claiming they were places where people met to conspire against him.

2. Arabica vs. Robusta
70% of the world consumes Arabica coffee which is mild and aromatic. The remaining 30% drinks Robusta, which is more bitter-tasting, but has 50% more caffeine than Arabica.

3. Coffee Grows on Trees
Coffee trees can grow up to 30 feet tall, but are cultivated to be around 10 feet tall for easy picking.

The other day on Facebook I noticed that a popular End Times prophecy blog, Now The End Begins, had been hijacked on YouTube by a group of Neo Nazis masquerading as Christians. I was amazed that they had the gall to actually use the same name, and then proceeded to show videos regarding the bible’s End Times Prophecies. It was a form of identity theft, by people representing themselves as “Christians”.

Charles Krauthammer: Why Doctors Quit — The Patriot Post

About a decade ago, a doctor friend was lamenting the increasingly frustrating conditions of clinical practice. “How did you know to get out of medicine in 1978?” he asked with a smile.

“I didn’t,” I replied. “I had no idea what was coming. I just felt I’d chosen the wrong vocation.”

I was reminded of this exchange upon receiving my med-school class’s 40th-reunion report and reading some of the entries. In general, my classmates felt fulfilled by family, friends and the considerable achievements of their professional lives. But there was an undercurrent of deep disappointment, almost demoralization, with what medical practice had become.

The complaint was not financial but vocational — an incessant interference with their work, a deep erosion of their autonomy and authority, a transformation from physician to “provider.”

As one of them wrote, “My colleagues who have already left practice all say they still love patient care, being a doctor. They just couldn’t stand everything else.” By which he meant “a never-ending attack on the profession from government, insurance companies, and lawyers … progressively intrusive and usually unproductive rules and regulations,” topped by an electronic health records (EHR) mandate that produces nothing more than “billing and legal documents” — and degraded medicine.

I hear this everywhere. Virtually every doctor and doctors’ group I speak to cites the same litany, with particular bitterness about the EHR mandate. As another classmate wrote, “The introduction of the electronic medical record into our office has created so much more need for documentation that I can only see about three-quarters of the patients I could before, and has prompted me to seriously consider leaving for the first time.”

You may have zero sympathy for doctors, but think about the extraordinary loss to society — and maybe to you, one day — of driving away 40 years of irreplaceable clinical experience.

And for what? The newly elected Barack Obama told the nation in 2009 that “it just won’t save billions of dollars” — $77 billion a year, promised the administration — “and thousands of jobs, it will save lives.” He then threw a cool $27 billion at going paperless by 2015.

It’s 2015 and what have we achieved? The $27 billion is gone, of course. The $77 billion in savings became a joke. Indeed, reported the Health and Human Services inspector general in 2014, “EHR technology can make it easier to commit fraud,” as in Medicare fraud, the copy-and-paste function allowing the instant filling of vast data fields, facilitating billing inflation.

That’s just the beginning of the losses. Consider the myriad small practices that, facing ruinous transition costs in equipment, software, training and time, have closed shop, gone bankrupt or been swallowed by some larger entity.

This hardly stays the long arm of the health care police, however. As of Jan. 1, 2015, if you haven’t gone electronic, your Medicare payments will be cut, by 1 percent this year, rising to 3 percent (potentially 5 percent) in subsequent years.

Then there is the toll on doctors’ time and patient care. One study in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine found that emergency-room doctors spend 43 percent of their time entering electronic records information, 28 percent with patients. Another study found that family-practice physicians spend on average 48 minutes a day just entering clinical data.

Forget the numbers. Think just of your own doctor’s visits, of how much less listening, examining, even eye contact goes on, given the need for scrolling, clicking and box checking.

The geniuses who rammed this through undoubtedly thought they were rationalizing health care. After all, banking went electronic. Why not medicine?

Because banks deal with nothing but data. They don’t listen to your heart or examine your groin. Clicking boxes on an endless electronic form turns the patient into a data machine and cancels out the subtlety of a doctor’s unique feel and judgment.

Why did all this happen? Because liberals in a hurry refuse to trust the self-interested wisdom of individual practictioners, who were already adopting EHR on their own, but gradually, organically, as the technology became ripe and the costs tolerable. Instead, Washington picked a date out of a hat and decreed: Digital by 2015.

The results are not pretty. EHR is health care’s Solyndra. Many, no doubt, feasted nicely on the $27 billion, but the rest is waste: money squandered, patient care degraded, good physicians demoralized.

Like my old classmates who signed up for patient care — which they still love — and now do data entry.

Napoleon is something of a puzzle


Napoleon is something of a puzzle. Almost every family in France lost a son in his wars — and for what? What did France gain for all that blood? Nothing. He was as bad for France as Hitler was for Germany.

And yet Napoleon is still a hero in France while Hitler is decried in Germany. Why? They both lost so it can’t be that. And there was a lot about Napoleon that one might normally dislike. He ran a police state, for instance. Dissent from his rule was swiftly dealt with. It was Napoleon who invented Fascism, not Mussolini. Mussolini just supplied the word for it. And like later fascists (including Hitler), Napoleon built up a personality cult around himself. Like later Communist dictators, he also circulated heroic images of himself.

But unlike Hitler, Napoleon was not much of a patriot. Hitler undoubtedly was a fervent German patriot and lover of his people but Napoleon was not. Largely because he was Corsican and not French, he spoke quite ill of France and the French — at least in his early days. He shut up about that later on however.

Arthur Silber has put up some excerpts from the biography of Napoleon by Paul Johnson that show how very Fascist Napoleon indeed was:

“The [French] Revolution was a lesson in the power of evil to replace idealism, and Bonaparte was its ideal pupil. Moreover, the Revolution left behind itself a huge engine: administrative and legal machinery to repress the individual such as the monarchs of the ancien regime never dreamed of; a centralized power to organize national resources that no previous state had ever possessed; an absolute concentration of authority, first in a parliament, then in a committee, finally in a single tyrant, that had never been known before; and a universal teaching that such concentration expressed the general will of a united people, as laid down in due constitutional form, approved by referendum.

In effect, then, the Revolution created the modern totalitarian state, in all essentials, if on an experimental basis, more than a century before it came to its full and horrible fruition in the twentieth century.”

And another of Bonaparte’s policies shows him as a forerunner even in the racist aspects of Fascism:
“In Le Crime de Napoleon the historian Claude Ribbe recalls that the emperor brought back slavery in the French empire in 1802, a decade after it had been abolished by the Revolution. The decision led to brutal fighting in France’s Caribbean colonies in which thousands died. Less well known, according to the book, is his imposition of racial laws in metropolitan France, which led to the internment of blacks and the forced break-up of inter-racial marriages”.

And Napoleon was as brutal and unscrupulous as any other Far-Leftist (whether Fascist or Communist). We read:
In 1799 Napoleon was in the Middle east. He took 2,000 prisoners in Gaza. At Jaffa 3,000 defenders surrendered to the French on condition that their lives would be spared. Once in possession of Jaffa, Napoleon ordered the execution of all the prisoners from Jaffa and most of those from Gaza. To save bullets and gunpowder, Napoleon ordered his men to bayonet or drown the prisoners. There were reports of soldiers wading out to sea to finish off terrified women and children.

And more from Ribbe:
A French historian has caused uproar by claiming Napoleon provided the model for Hitler’s Final Solution with the slaughter of more than 100,000 Caribbean slaves.

In The Crime of Napoleon, Claude Ribbe accuses the emperor of genocide, gassing rebellious blacks more than a century before the Nazis’ extermination of the Jews.

His accusations refer to the extreme methods used to put down a ferocious uprising in Haiti at the start of the 19th century. Then known as San Domingo, the colony was considered a jewel of the French empire and to save it troops launched a campaign to kill all blacks aged over 12.

“In simple terms, Napoleon ordered the killing of as many blacks as possible in Haiti and Guadeloupe to be replaced by new, docile slaves from Africa,” Ribbe said yesterday.

He said he had found accounts from officers who refused to take part in the massacres, especially the use of sulphur dioxide to kill slaves held in ships’ holds.
Since Napoleon is still a French national hero, it is no wonder that the Nazis found it relatively easy to get the French to “collaborate” in World War II.

So what is it, then, that the French still like about Napoleon? There can be only one answer: He gave a string of victories to a nation much more accustomed to defeats. At Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt the English gave France a hard time in the late medieval era and, much later, even the Sun King could not prevail against the first Duke of Marlborough. And we won’t mention the humiliation at Sedan or Von Manstein’s Blitzkrieg. The idolization of Napoleon is then rather pathetic: Clinging to the memory of a very bad man simply because French military victories are so rare.

And was he a military genius? Not really. The French revolution had produced a Volksturm (the whole nation at war) long before Hitler thought of it and the enthusiasm of such troops for a while swept all old-fashioned armies before it. And his disastrous invasion of Russia was plainly hubris, not genius. Even his acclaimed victory at Austerlitz was enabled by a very old stratagem. He secretly brought up fresh troops overnight so surprised his adversaries next morning. Using secrecy to surprise your enemy is of course as old as Hannibal at Trasimene and even Hannibal was not the first to think of it.

And his half-day hesitation at Waterloo gave the Prussians time to come up and turn the tide against him. The military genius in that affair was Gneisenau, the Prussian strategist.

So Napoleon is very much an idol with feet of clay. The continued high regard for him in France bespeaks a very flawed national morality. Americans go into spasms of indignation over just a word — “nigger” — but to the French a genocidal tyrant is a cool guy. And they think of themselves as a civilized people! They have considerable claims of cultural excellence. It’s a pity that they can’t be satisfied with that


A new denial that Hitler was a socialist

A new denial that Hitler was a socialist

Tim Stanley is an historian so his denial that Hitler was a socialist is not the sheer ignorance that one usually encounters.  The clue to his skepticism lies however early in his article.  He says of Hitler:  “He may well have been anticapitalist, but that does not necessarily mean that his concept of socialism sits within the Marxist tradition”.

That sentence is very curious indeed.  How could Hitler be anticapitalist and NOT be socialist? “Anticapitalist” and “socialist” are pretty near synonyms.  (Yes. I know about Bismarck.  That’s another story and a fascinating one but I have written on that elsewhere — e.g. here).  But by the time we get to the end of the sentence we see what is going on.  Stanley’s Leftist background is showing.  Like many academic Leftists, socialism is to Stanley synonymous with Marxism.

So Leftist leaders like Tony Blair are not socialists?  Blair is certainly no Marxist but he was one of the most electorally successful leaders the British Labour party has had. So Stanley is saying only that Hitler is not a Marxist.  But who would disagree with that?  Hitler hated Bolshevism.

But some of the great hates in life stem from sibling rivalry and anybody who has spent much time talking to Leftists will know how much sibling rivalry there is among them. It is very common on the Left — witness the icepick in the head that Trotsky got courtesy of Stalin. Very few of the old Bolsheviks lived for long after the revolution, in fact.

And Lenin was just as bad as Stalin. In a 1920 pamphlet you find a contempt for some of his fellow Leftists that is probably greater than anything he ever wrote about the Tsar. It is in describing his fellow revolutionaries (Kautsky and others) that Lenin spoke swingeingly of “the full depth of their stupidity, pedantry, baseness and betrayal of working-class interests”. But Leftism is founded on hate so such hate for fellow Leftists is no surprise.

So Stanley starts out on a very false footing.

Stanley’s other objections to the view of Hitler as a socialist boil down to saying that Hitler was hypocritical.  He said one thing to intimates and different things in public.  But surely that just makes him a politician?  He was one.  He fought many elections.  To judge any political figure by what they do in private is rather hilarious in fact.  Fidel Castro surely has earned his stripes as a socialist but he lives the privileged and luxurious of the Hispanic grandee that he is. Tito was similar.  Remember him?

I myself make no judgment about what Hitler really believed.  As  far as one can tell, it was a bit of a hodge-podge, though his antisemitism was probably heartfelt.  Even his antisemitism was Leftist in his days, however.  The founder of Germany’s mainstream Leftist party, August Bebel, famously noted that “Antisemitismus ist der Sozialismus des blöden Mannes” — generally translated as “Antisemitism is the socialism of fools”.  Antisemitism was in other words very common among pre-war socialists.  And Lenin himself alluded to the same phenomenon in saying that “it is not the Jews who are the enemies of the working people” but “the capitalists of all countries.”  He wanted class-war and saw antisemitism among his fellow Leftists as a distraction from that.

So what is of interest is surely not what Hitler believed in his heart of hearts but rather what he preached to the German public.  What was his appeal?  How did he campaign?  What did he promise in his rise to power?

And there is no doubt about that. Perhaps the most amazing parallel between Hitler and the postwar Left is that for much of the 30s Hitler was actually something of a peacenik. I am putting up below a picture of a Nazi propaganda poster of the 1930s that you won’t believe unless you are aware of how readily all Leftists preach one thing and do another. It reads “Mit Hitler gegen den Ruestungswahnsinn der Welt”.

Deconstructing Cessationism: Part 2

Scriptures that Support Current Manifestations of the Spirit

Let’s begin with the words of Jesus:

And these signs will accompany those who believe [emphasis added]: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well” (Mark 16:17-18).

President Obama is being urged by Christian groups to intervene to protect Sudanese Christian pastors who are facing execution simply because they preached the pure Gospel.

The President’s silence on this subject is damning!

NEWS BRIEF: “PC USA Petitions Obama to Uphold Rights for Sudanese Pastors Facing Execution for Preaching the Gospel“, Christian Post, June 8, 2015

“The Presbyterian Church USA recently reached out to President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials urging them to use their resources to ensure that the rights of two Sudanese pastors facing possible execution for preaching the Gospel are upheld in Sudan.”

“… both pastors “were arrested after preaching” in late 2014 and earlier this year, and stated that Gradye Parsons, the PCUSA’s clerk, has written to the president and other U.S. officials urging them to use their resources to protect the rights of Michael and Reith.”

“The South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church recently noted that this type of persecution is common in the country.

“This is not ‘something new’ for our church,” said Rev. Tut Kony, pastor of the South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church. ‘Almost all pastors have gone to jail under the government of Sudan. We have been stoned and beaten. This is their habit to pull down the church. We are not surprised. This is the way they deal with the church’.”

Throughout the Middle East and Africa, Christians are facing the most severe genocide in modern history. Christians are dying by the minute. We all need to hold them up in prayer and to demand that our President diplomatically and economically rush to their aid.

Many people have believed that Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim. If he does not act to save these ministers from execution, his Islamic credentials shall be on display for the entire world to see.

25 August 2012

Today I was hitchhiking north on U.S. 395 and was dropped off at Davis Creek, California.  I got a hamburger and something to drink at the country store in Davis Creek.  From Davis Creek I continued walking north.

It seemed like it was a slow day for getting rides.  I walked a few miles and began to run out of water.  It was very warm (around 86 degrees F) and the air was smokey from all of the wildfires in the northern California-eastern Oregon neighborhood.  Last night, as I slept in my sheepherder’s camper at my friends’ place, the air seemed smokier than usual (the air has been smokey for most of the past month).

I stopped walking and began to wonder why it was taking me so long to get to Lakeview, Oregon.  Then I realized that the Lord was…

Why is pronunciation so hard for adults?


“In investigating the child’s brain, we may be able to help keep our own minds open to learning for our entire lives”

Here at Lirean, we know a thing or two about silly pronunciation mistakes. Katie, our content developer, once spent a few months in Italy asking for pesce (fish) at the grocers instead of peaches (pesche). Our Italian graphic designer Matteo, struggles to distinguish the vowel sounds in sheep and ship, which gets him into all kinds of trouble when he talks about beaches or sheets. Then there’s Gen, our researcher, whose Cantonese grandma once offered to take her out to eat crap (or crab, we hope).

But pronunciation struggles aren’t all fun and games and toilet humour.

Resesearch shows that having a strong foreign accent can lead to a whole host of professsional and social disadvantages. One study even shows that speakers with foreign accents are more likely…

Imaginary Mentor

I tend to believe ‘Ci Fu’ would only appear in your early stage of life. ‘Ci Fu’ by all means I refer them as the mentor/coach. When you’re grown up, there’s just no excuse for you to take care of yourself. There might be exceptions found in church or other types of religious communities. I just wish I could meet one soon enough that I could get influence from. I’m very fed up on figuring things and go around circle in life. This cycle has been going on for so long until I realize I’d become my own ‘Ci Fu’. Maybe it’s just my nature to dig into my own world and experiment.

Cutting Edge Weekly Newsletter Friday June 5 2015

I. Lucifer makes Prime Time!

Propaganda conditioning to accept Lucifer and his values is now on Fox TV!


“In 2016, additional new series joining the schedule include devilish drama LUCIFER … Based on characters from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, LUCIFER stars Tom Ellis (“Merlin”) as the charming, charismatic and handsome-as-hell original fallen angel, who, bored and unhappy in Hell, takes refuge in Los Angeles, where he uses his gift of persuasion to punish bad guys. But the longer he’s away from the underworld, the greater the threat …”

This slick Fox TV series is going to depict Lucifer in the role of the “good guy” supernatural being who left his home in Hell so that he could save humanity? Doesn’t this plot sound a lot like the Biblical account of Jesus? In order to save a sinful humanity, Jesus left his throne in Glory so that he could come to Earth and carry out His plan of salvation.

To a Biblically ignorant world, this modern-day parallel of Lucifer to Jesus might seem logical. You see, Antichrist will be possessed by the real Lucifer and he will tell mankind that he has come to save humanity. This TV series seems to be a conditioning vehicle to prepare the world for the coming Antichrist.

Christian author, Constance Cumbey, quotes a New Age author who stated that “The Christ cannot appear until, and unless, a significant proportion of people have been preconditioned to accept him” (“Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”)

After flooding the TV and movie schedules with themes of demons and werewolves and witches, Hollywood has decided that the time has come to bring out the “Big Gun”, Lucifer himself.

Christian, this development is another sign telling us that the time of Redemption is at hand!

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)

II. Is the Patriot Act REALLY dismantled, or just replaced with a newer version?

Have the American people been deceived once again?

NEWS BRIEF: “USA Freedom Act gives NSA everything it wants — and less “, by Joshua Kopstein, al-jazeera News, America Focus, June 2, 2015

“With a 67-32 vote in the Senate this afternoon, Congress finally passed the USA Freedom Act, a surveillance bill being hailed on the Hill as the biggest effort to rein in the intelligence community since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.”

“The Senate adopted the House version of the bill, which had been watered down at the behest of intelligence agencies, and President Obama signed the Freedom Act into law later this evening.”

Since Government never surrenders dictatorial powers she has been granted, I looked at this news story with a great deal of reservation. As it turns, out, my skepticism was founded. The NSA was not really “reined in”. In fact, NSA officials seemed very happy with the new bill.

“… the Freedom Act has focused almost exclusively on ending one single National Security Agency program under one single authority: The secret bulk collection of Americans’ phone records under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, revealed almost exactly two years ago by Edward Snowden … The new law replaces the NSA’s bulk data collection with a program that requires telecom companies to retain the data and grant access to intelligence agencies through more targeted court orders.”

This new bill will allow NSA to continue operating pretty much as she has been doing since October, 2001, when the original Patriot Act took effect. Forget that false assurance that NSA will be subject to “more targeted court orders.” The court to whom NSA will turn to receive her authorization for access is the secretive Federal spy court, created after the attacks of 9/11/2001, to provide a fig leaf of protection for the rights and freedoms of American citizens.

Please allow this author the last say on this issue.

“Even people within the NSA have been candidly celebrating the Freedom Act’s surveillance “reforms,” calling it “a nothingburger for the privacy community.” And they might be right — with so many overlapping and redundant surveillance authorities, it’d be foolish to think the Freedom Act has ended bulk collection in any significant capacity.”

But, the average American does not know this fact. The vast majority of citizens right now are undoubtedly breathing a sigh of relief, thinking that Congress has acted to protect our freedoms, when nothing of the kind has really occurred.

As usual, the Federal Government rules by “smoke and mirrors”!

III. Pope Francis urges Catholics and Protestants to merge.

“We are one” he insists. Global Religion is coming!

And, the Roman Catholic Pontiff will become the ‘False Prophet’ of Rev 13.

NEWS BRIEF: “‘Pope’ Francis Claims Devil Keeping Evangelicals, Roman Catholics Divided: ‘They Are One’ “, by Heather Clark, Christian News Network, reprinted in Lighthouse Trails Newsletter, June 3, 2015

“ROME — In a recorded video statement released on Saturday, the Roman Catholic Pontiff known as Francis asserted that evangelicals and Catholics are one, and that it is the devil who has divided the two groups. ‘Division is the work of the ‘Father of Lies,’ ‘the Father of Discord,’ who does everything possible to keep us divided’, he said.”

Pope Francis is pointedly refusing to acknowledge that the real reason for division of Catholic and Protestant Christianity is doctrine and the spirit that dwells each camp.

You see, Catholicism is counterfeit Christianity, based upon “Works Salvation”, whereas Protestant Christianity is based squarely upon Salvation by Grace and belief in Jesus’ sacrifice alone.

Pope Francis is trying to bring Protestant Christianity under the global tent of the coming One World Religion. You see, the Elite chose the Pope — whomever he was at the time — to be the top religious leader of the New World Order Religion (Read full details in NWES1052).

One quote from Bill Lambert, Boston House of Theosophy, August 18, 1991 says it all:

“At the proper moment in history, the Pope will visit the combined Jewish/Christian/Moslem sector of Jerusalem to announce that all religions should be combined into one … “Energies want to flow from the Hierarchy to earth to produce the physical manifestation of the Christ; but, such flow can only occur when humanity raises its collective consciousness to be properly awakened receptors.”

“I then tried again to get Bill to state that one of the leaders of the world’s religion would step forward to play the role of the Biblical False Prophet. I said, ‘Back to the Pope for a moment, Bill. You stated that, at the right moment, the Pope would go to Jerusalem. Surely the Pope is a proper receptor to the Christ’ At this point, Bill nodded his head affirmatively that the Pope was a proper receptor to the Christ (Antichrist). ”

Protestant Christianity is also separated from Roman Catholicism by the tens of millions of martyrs who died at the hands of Catholic executioners during the 300 years of the Roman Catholic Inquisition (1550-1850). Christian leaders advocating a rapprochement with the Vatican are rendering the horrible suffering and death of over 70 million Protestants as Rome truly attempted to remove all Protestants with the edge of the sword. Such current Christian leaders are traitors to the death of so many Brothers in Christ who have lived, and bled, before our time.

Did Beau die from complications arising from his exposure to Depleted Uranium while serving his year in Iraq?

Beau Biden — son of V.P. Joe Biden — died of brain cancer Saturday.

Did Beau die from complications arising from his exposure to Depleted Uranium while serving his year in Iraq?

NEWS BRIEF: “Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, dies of brain cancer”, Fox News, May 31, 2015

“Beau Biden — son of Vice President Joe Biden — died of brain cancer at 46 … Beau Biden was a lawyer and member of the Delaware National Guard and former Delaware attorney general. However, he never would follow in his father’s footsteps as a U.S. senator.”

Beau Biden also patriotically served his country as an Army Captain in Iraq! It is toward this fact that we wish to now turn our attention, because it is highly likely that he was exposed to Depleted Uranium poisoning during that year of deployment. When did Beau serve in Iraq and when was he first diagnosed with brain cancer?

NEWS BRIEF: “Beau Biden, son of the vice president, dies at 46”, Politico, May 31, 2015

“Beau Biden, the former Delaware attorney general and son of Vice President Joe Biden, died Saturday … The vice president’s office said Saturday that Beau Biden was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013 and underwent successful surgery at MD Anderson in Houston ….”

When did Beau serve in Iraq?

NEWS BRIEF: “Beau Biden”, Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia

“Biden joined the military in 2003 as a member of the Delaware Army National Guard and was a Major in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps as part of the 261st Signal Brigade in Smyrna, Delaware … Biden’s unit was activated to deploy to Iraq on October 3, 2008, and sent to Fort Bliss, Texas, for pre-deployment training … Biden traveled to Washington, D.C., from Iraq in January 2009 for the presidential inauguration and his father’s swearing-in as Vice President, then returned to Iraq. Biden received a visit at Camp Victory from his father on July 4, 2009. Biden returned from Iraq in September 2009, his yearlong stint on active duty complete.”

Therefore, Beau Biden served one year in Iraq, from October, 2008, to September, 2009.

How easily can a soldier fighting for a year in Iraq contract Depleted Uranium poisoning?

“Other soldiers that breathe in lesser amounts do not suffer immediately, but have a high chance of breathing in enough to cause serious problems later on. How many of the ground soldiers are contaminated enough with Depleted Uranium residue? ‘Any soldier now in Iraq who has not inhaled lethal radioactive dust is not breathing’.” [Death By Slow Burn – How America Nukes Its Own Troops”, Worthington, Amy The Idaho Observer, 4/16/03, quoted in NEWS1843, posted July, 2004; Emphasis added]

This means every single soldier — and every single civilian — has tiny particles of Depleted Uranium dust lodged in their lungs, emitting radioactivity throughout their body 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Army is NOT telling their men that they can get D.U. poisoning simply by breathing in the contaminated dust. In fact, as we report in our Newsletter040204, a soldier just has to breathe in ONE tiny speck of dust to become fatally ill! From the moment a soldier breathes in a dust speck contaminated with D.U., he will begin to suffer from the D.U. spreading radiation throughout his body, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is the reality behind the warning Cutting Edge received from a medical doctor serving in a foreign army in May, 2003.

You see, from the instant a depleted uranium round explodes on its target, the extremely dense metal dissolves into tiny specks of metal, which then mix in with the sand and dirt in Iraq — and Afghanistan. Once the wind picks up the sand and dir as happens so often in Iraq, soldiers have no choice but to breathe in air mixed with a uranium tiny speck of metal.

Can anyone serve a whole year in Iraq and/or Afghanistan without breathing in a uranium contaminated speck? We posted an article written to answer this question. It is NEWS2063, entitled, “BLINDING SANDSTORMS: HOW DEPLETED URANIUM KILLS AN ENTIRE POPULATION”.

“We demonstrate how Nature effectively moves contaminated dust from the battlefield to the cities, and to nations beyond the country’s borders. While residents are used to wearing masks to offer some protection against these routine dust storms, but what they do not realize is that Depleted Uranium dust is usually so small that it passes right through masks. These protective devices are absolutely no protection against DU-contaminated dust.

“Notice that this news story says that many people are literally “suffocating” in this sandstorm. While this sandstorm was so unusually heavy that this article described it as a “freak”, normal sandstorms which blow throughout Iraq and the Middle East are nearly as bad. During the first three weeks of fighting after our invasion of March 20, 2003, battles were abandoned on both sides at least twice if my memory serves me correctly because sandstorms whipped through the area.”

“Part of the insidious nature of this DU poisoning is that its effects take a long time to develop; therefore, when a soldier becomes ill 3-10 years later, the Pentagon is primed to deny that the origin of the sickness is this Gulf War … We reported, above, that these naturally-occurring, frequent sandstorms blow all through the Middle East, including Iraq. The civilian population is terribly exposed to Depleted Uranium dust because of these sandstorms, but then, so again are our soldiers … ”

NEWS BRIEF: “Silent WMD’s — Effects of Depleted Uranium”, by Admiral Vishnu Bhagwatt, February 29, 2004,

DU weapons emit ‘Alpha’ particle dose to a single cell from U-238, which is 50 times the annual dose level. Cancer is initiated with one alpha particle, its daughter isotopes effect generations as the isotopes bio-concentrate in plants and animals and travel up the food chain. It is a nuclear weapon … They enter the body through the lungs, the digestive system, or breaks in the skin. One gram of DU releases more than 12,000 particles per second. The radiation slowly kills the cells that make life possible. The Gulf War Syndrome of 1991 did just that (reported by Dr. Asaf Durakovic, Professor of Medicine, Georgetown University).”

How far do these sandstorms blow from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan? Prepare to be shocked.

“Countries within a 1000-mile radius of Baghdad and Kabul are being affected by radiation poisoning …” [Ibid.]

Did you catch the relevant statistic? “Countries within a 1000-mile radius of Baghdad and Kabul are being affected by radiation poisoning …”

Starting late in 3004, the Pentagon clamped down hard on any reporting of soldiers returning home with a sickness caused by exposure to Depleted Uranium Munitions. Brain Cancer is a common result of exposure to D.U. as is a stroke. I believe it likely that Beau Biden died from exposure to Depleted Uranium weapons used extensively in Iraq!

Ha Skull & Bones President George W. Bush just claimed another victim in his “war against terror” in Iraq?

NOTE: To read more widely about Depleted Uranium weapons, click to our section on this subject –

You will realize that the Global Elite declared total war against all Muslims and began the attack using uranium weapons in January, 1991, during Gulf War I. The West has been using D.U. weapons against Muslims for the past 24 years and will continue using them until Muslims begin to die by the tens of thousands. Christian author, Constance Cumby, stated in her 1984 book, “Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”, that the Illuminati had decided that all adherents of Monotheistic Religions had to die, starting with Islam, and then Christians, and finally, Jews.

No matter what anyone tells you about the dangers of Islam gaining control in the West, just remember that Muslims are under silent attack from Deplete Uranium weapons! The Elite is out for extermination.
