$4 Trillion in Bailout Money for Federal Reserve Bankers’ Banks

Senator Bernie Sanders has released the names of 18 bankers who have served as board members of regional Federal Reserve Banks (private) and whose banks collected $4 trillion in low-interest loans from the Federal Reserve System. The list is here.
Sanders has revealed the following.
More than $4 trillion in near zero-interest Federal Reserve loans and other financial assistance went to the banks and businesses of at least 18 current and former Federal Reserve regional bank directors in the aftermath of the 2008 financial collapse, according to Government Accountability Office records made public for the first time today by Sen. Bernie Sanders.
On the eve of Senate testimony by JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Sanders (I-Vt.) released the detailed findings on Dimon and other Fed board members whose banks and businesses benefited from Fed actions.
“This report reveals the inherent conflicts of interest that exist at the Federal Reserve. At a time when small businesses could not get affordable loans to create jobs, the Fed was providing trillions in secret loans to some of the largest banks and corporations in America that were well represented on the boards of the Federal Reserve Banks. These conflicts must end,” Sanders said.
The GAO study found that allowing members of the banking industry to both elect and serve on the Federal Reserve’s board of directors creates “an appearance of a conflict of interest” and poses “reputational risks” to the Federal Reserve System.
In Dimon’s case, JPMorgan received some $391 billion of the $4 trillion in emergency Fed funds at the same time his bank was used by the Fed as a clearinghouse for emergency lending programs. In March of 2008, the Fed provided JPMorgan with $29 billion in financing to acquire Bear Stearns. Dimon also got the Fed to provide JPMorgan Chase with an 18-month exemption from risk-based leverage and capital requirements. And he convinced the Fed to take risky mortgage-related assets off of Bear Stearns balance sheet before JP Morgan Chase acquired the troubled investment bank.
Another high-profile conflict involved Stephen Friedman, the former chairman of the New York Fed’s board of directors. Late in 2008, the New York Fed approved an application from Goldman Sachs to become a bank holding company giving it access to cheap loans from the Federal Reserve. During that period, Friedman sat on the Goldman Sachs board. He also owned Goldman stock, something that was prohibited by Federal Reserve conflict of interest regulations. Although it was not publicly disclosed at the time, Friedman received a waiver from the Fed’s conflict of interest rules in late 2008. Unbeknownst to the Fed, Friedman continued to purchase shares in Goldman from November 2008 through January of 2009, according to the GAO.
In another case, General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt was a New York Fed board member at the same time GE helped create a Commercial Paper Funding Facility during the financial crisis. The Fed later provided $16 billion in financing to GE under this emergency lending program.

$970 Billion Bailout Bill Passes a Key Senate Committee. Congress Will Vote for It. Obama Will Sign It.

When the U.S. government passes a bailout bill worth close to $1 trillion, you might think this would be front-page news. It isn’t.
You might think Republicans would be fighting it. They aren’t.
Why not? Becquse it’s that old favortite, agribusiness.
In the name of helping the small farmer, the agrigribusiness industry lives high on the hog. It lives on the federal tit.
This will never change until the Great Default.
The bill covers five years, so it’s really a “mere” $194 billion a year.
It covers food stamps. It covers crop insurance: zero-risk pricing of crops. It’s pork. Literally.
The promoter of this system of government-subsidized agriculture is being hyped by the Senate Agriculture Committee is a “new, improved” system of facism. (Fascism is what it is: the alliance between big busibess and big government.
Supposedly, it’s much more free market today. The Chairwoman of the committee proclaims: “The Farm Bill before us today makes major reforms. We are cutting subsidies. We are ending direct payments. We cut the deficit by over $23 billion.”
It’s pure pork. It’s Crisco for agribusiness.
The senior Republican on the Agriculture Committee insists: “They’re real cuts. They are real deficit savings.”
Right. Count $970 billion in bailout money as savings. I believe!
This has been going on since Roosevelt’s New Deal. It will not change. We do not have a free market in agriculture. We have a fascist system. The voters do not care. The farmers pretend they are not wards of the state. The voters pretend that they are not subsidizing inefficiency. They also do not understand that they pay more for food because of this fascist system.
Everyone is just fine with the arrangement. No one pays any attention.
The Senate bill is likely to be larded by the House of Representatives.
Then Obama will sign it. It’s an election year. He does not want to lose the farm bloc vote. It is made up mostly of urban residents in farm states who overpay at the supermarket for food.

“Phone Stamps”: Food Stamps Now Come With Free Phones

Written by Gary North on June 15, 2012

Print Friendly
The food stamp program is in fact a food card program. To keep things efficient (and anonymous), welfare clients are issued their own debit cards for food. The stores get the digital money instantly.
This is now costing taxpayers $75 billion a year.
But add to this another $2 billion. Why? Because people on the food card program are eligible to have a free cell phone.
The general public does not know this. But even if they did, they would not protest. The voters are so completely guilt-manipulated that they will not protest, no matter how big the welfare state gets. We are way beyond the point of no return. The bills keep rising.
The federal government’s free cell phone program is called Lifeline. You are eligible is you get Medicaid, food cards, Head Start, and other federal programs.
Think of Lifeline as “phone stamps.”
It has been around for over 25 years.
You pay for it: the “Universal Service Charge” that is added to your phone bill.
Since 2000, the program has been booming.
In 2008, there were about 7 million participants. In 2009, this went to 8.6 million. That year, payments went over $1 billion. It is now growing fast. It’s around $2 billion now.
About 10% of the phone stamp people are ineligible. In some states, it’s twice this: Alabama, New Hampshire, and West Virginia.
The FCC is considering upgrading the free phones to smartphones.

Parents Furious After School Teaches Graphic Sex Class

Parents Furious After School Teaches Graphic Sex Class
Jun 14, 2012
By Todd Starnes
Parents in a small Washington State community are infuriated after their 11-year-old children were given graphic descriptions of oral and anal sex during a sex education class led by an elementary school principal.

Fifth-graders at Onalaska Elementary School were supposed to get a lesson about HIV-AIDS, but the class discussion turned graphic when a child asked about other forms of sexual activity. The principal, who happened to be teaching the class, then told the children about oral and anal sex.
“I’m one pissed off cowboy,” parent James Gilliand told Fox News Radio. “I didn’t appreciate them teaching my daughter – who is innocent of that – at all.”
Gilliland and his wife, Kadra, were among the moms and dads in Onalaska, about 73 miles south of Tacoma, demanding answers from their local school system – and so far – they are still waiting.
“I was just shocked because I trusted my little country school,” Kadra Gilliland told Fox News Radio. “I didn’t think they were going to talk about such things. I trusted by school – that’s the bottom line and they crossed the line.”
School officials did not return calls seeking comment.
However, Superintendent Scott Fenter defended the principal’s action to local media and said that the lesson did not go too far.
“I think the principal handled it appropriately at the time; she only gave factual information, no demonstrations,” Fenter told “Because in sixth grade they start becoming sexually aware and you’ve got to teach them ahead of time.”
In an interview with Seattle’s Q-13 Fox News, Fenter said the lessons came from “state-adopted curriculum.”
“In reality, she stuck to the curriculum,” he told Seattle’s Q-13 Fox News. “It’s pretty difficult to talk about STDs or sexually transmitted diseases without explaining what that is, or how it’s transmitted.”
Since 1988 Washington State has required some sort of sex education starting in the fifth grade.
“Kids leaving 5th grade and moving into middle school start getting exposed to a lot more information, and we know that`s the age where many children start to become sexually active, unfortunately,” Fenter told the Fox affiliate. “And that`s a scary thought, (but) that`s the truth.”
Parent Curtis Pannkuk said if that’s the case – the curriculum needs to be changed.
“One of the other parents said it well – they raped the minds of the ten year old, eleven year old kids,” he told Fox News Radio. “Children were traumatized.”
The Pannkuk and Gilliland families said they knew something was wrong when the daughters came home from school. They were quiet and withdrawn.
“You could tell she was embarrassed,” Jean Pannkuk told Fox News Radio. “She didn’t want to have to repeat what had been said. It was really sad to see her struggle with feeling like she was responsible.”
Pannkuk and her husband sat their daughter down and asked her explain what she was taught in the class.
“You take a man’s penis and you put it in your mouth – that’s what the girls do to the boys,” their daughter told the couple. “The boys spread the girls legs apart and put their mouths down on the vaginas.”
Pannkuk said he became enraged as his 11-year-old daughter recounted what the principal had told the classroom.
“Steam was coming out my ears,” he said. “I was very, very upset. I understand that they need to teach these kids sex education – but 11-year-olds? I have a problem with that. The wife and I were very – very upset.”
Gilliland said another child explained to their parents that it “was basically like a lollipop.”
“There are a lot of pissed off parents besides this pissed-off cowboy,” he said. “I’ve been told they’re getting sexually active, younger and younger – maybe in the city – but not here in the country.”
But Supt. Fenter told Seattle’s Fox affiliate that parents were sent a notice informing them about the program – and that they had a right to review the curriculum. But he said, only three parents showed up.
Mrs. Pannkuk said she was aware of the class “but I didn’t know it was going to be that explicit.”
Gilliland said he has no problem teaching sex education – but this particular class went too far.
“It’s one thing to teach about reproduction,” he said. ‘She knows about breeding her guinea pigs, horses, dogs and so on. She knows how babies are born and how they are created, but when they go teaching them these extra acts – it’s appalling.”
Mrs. Gilliland said it’s important for parents across the nation to get involved and to pay attention.
“Be more involved in your school,” she said. “See what your kids are learning. Pay attention. Talk to your kids.”
She said many of the families are now dealing with the aftermath of the class.
“She should be bouncing on the trampoline, riding horses – doing normal kid stuff,” she said of her daughter. “We don’t need to talk about that stuff at that age.
But now they do.
“The damage is done,” Pannkuk said.

Among the many strange creatures found in the Australian outback is one called the Frilled-Necked Lizard. He has this umbrella-like structure around his neck which, when threatened, he splays out in an effort to look larger to his adversaries. To complete the effect, his skin grows darker in color; he opens his mouth widely and emits a loud hissing sound while rocking back and forth on his hind legs.

It’s quite a sight, and it does make him appear somewhat menacing. The problem is, it’s all for show. If a potential foe makes even a faint move toward him, this guy turns and runs away like his head’s on fire. Despite his warrior-like appearance, he is actually more of a song-and-dance-man. It is a trait that makes him the obvious candidate to replace the elephant as the symbol of the Republican Party. After all, elephants are noble animals who will take on a pride of lions to protect their young, and no one can even remotely suggest this is true about the GOP.
With that, we come to the primary arena where Republicans display their cowardice. It is in the battle over abortion, and right now, a textbook example of this being played out in Ohio. As you read this column, a groundbreaking piece of pro-life legislation called the “Heartbeat Bill” is being intentionally bottled up in legislative maneuvering by gutless Republican legislators who call themselves pro-life.
Naturally, these people are able to regurgitate a lot of meaningless drivel to justify their treason, but the bottom line is that they seem to be comfortable doing nothing while millions of unborn babies have their arms and legs ripped off, their chests crushed and their skulls collapsed. Apparently, like the goons down at Planned Parenthood, Ohio’s Frilled-Neck-Republicans are willing to just write these children off.
I must caution you, however, not to conclude that this sort of scandal is unique to Ohio. In the pro-life movement’s race to our inevitable victory, overcoming the damage done by faux-life politicians is a hurdle we have had to leap before and will have to leap again, in every state of the Union.
Let’s cut to the chase. As much as the GOP’s gated-community quislings might prefer that confrontation over abortion be conducted like some ivory-tower debate between people in plaid smoking jackets with elbow patches, it is not going to happen. This has always been, and will always be, the political equivalent of a brawl in a waterfront bar.
Regrettably, most Republicans give off the aura of a bunch of guys whose mamas used to dress them for college. As part of some fraternity hazing ritual, they might find themselves sitting in a waterfront bar trying to look like they belong. But the only thing you can be certain of is that, when the first punch is thrown, the next sound you’re going to hear is the rapid pitter-patter of fine leather wing-tips stampeding out the door.
Another problem is that Republican lawmakers have about as much practical use for the abortion issue as a fish has for a bicycle. That’s because these guys are motivated by money and votes that the unborn don’t have. In addition, they always seem to get a little queasy whenever the abortion issue is mentioned. To an even casual observer, it is clear that they have about the same opinion of the pro-life movement that they would have about the cockroach they step on during a middle-of-the-night trip to the toilet.
In short, this is a fight for which Republicans have no stomach. On the other hand, it is exactly the kind of fight their opponents relish. It is hardly a secret that, since the 1960s, the once-proud Democratic Party has devolved into a snake pit of perverted social agendas pushed by amoral leftists who will wallow in the filthiest cesspool to get what they want. And that scares most Republicans to death.
In the final analysis, the Democrats are almost always wrong on moral issues and will fight to the death for them, while the Republicans are generally right on moral issues but don’t care about them. The result is that, in the cultural civil war currently being waged for the soul and future of our country, the political battle often comes down to a contest between those who lack character and those who lack courage.
If you need proof, just do an internet search and type in: Ohio, the Heartbeat Bill.

Who is the White House Mole?

  |   Printer Friendly

There has been a series of leaks of classified information from the White House in an effort to portray President Obama as a tough American foreign policy leader, but no official has resigned from the administration or the Obama campaign in disgrace or protest. This suggests the betrayal of state secrets is being condoned or ignored at the highest levels. Not surprisingly, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is resisting the appointment of a special or outside counsel to probe the scandal.
If it is so easy to turn over national security information to the media, it may be just as easy to turn the state secrets directly over to the enemy. Either way, our adversaries benefit.
Starting with Obama and then moving through Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and on to campaign adviser David Axelrod, we have individuals who could not pass a basic FBI background check.
Obama says, “The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive. It’s wrong.” This is from the candidate who concealed the identity of his communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, in his book, Dreams from My Father. Such a cover-up should have disqualified Obama from the office of the presidency.
The connection to Davis has never been investigated by the major media, let alone Congress. For their part, Republicans are afraid of being called racist McCarthyites if they challenge Obama’s allegiance to the United States and raise questions about his communist connections and Islamic upbringing.
In a roundabout way to get at the truth, Republicans are pleading for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the damage that has been done by the leaks. Holder thumbs his nose at them. Even if they get their special counsel, the damage is done and the results won’t be available until probably next year, after the elections.
Congress is part of the problem and got us into this mess to begin with.
Congress gave Panetta a pass when he became CIA director and then Secretary of Defense, despite his long record of associations with identified communist Hugh DeLacy, who had connections to the Chinese government. Not surprisingly, the Soros-funded Media Matters came to Panetta’s defense, accusing conservatives of a “smear” for raising the inconvenient facts about his record, including opposition to President Reagan’s anti-communist defense policies. Media Matters has White House connections and specializes in intimidating the media when they dare to question the White House line.
Fortunately, the facts, including some of a personal nature, were included in a column by the courageous Diana West, who commented that the evidence showed that Panetta had “a cordial, long-term relationship in the 1970s and 1980s” with Hugh DeLacy, a Communist Party USA member elected to one term in Congress while pretending to be a Democrat in 1944. Incriminating “Dear Hugh” and “Dear Leon” documents were obtained by researcher Trevor Loudon at the University of Washington.
West went on, “DeLacy later co-founded the communist-penetrated Progressive Party that nominated Henry Wallace for president in 1948. By the 1970s, DeLacy was still politically active, with connections to known Soviet agents including Victor Perlo of the infamous Perlo spy group, and Frank Coe and Solomon Adler of the equally infamous Silvermaster spy group. DeLacy is also associated with suspected Soviet agent John Stewart Service of the ‘Amerasia’ spy case.”
She noted that “DeLacy was of sufficient interest to Communist China to have scored a paid junket to the People’s Republic in 1974,” and there “met up with Service, Coe and Adler, who was then thought to be working for Chinese intelligence.”
“Our legislative branch is falling asleep on the job over stories that should be giving them—and us—night sweats,” West said, in a column titled, “Give Panetta the Pinko Slip.” But Republican senators—some of the same people now expressing outrage over leaks—put on their blinders.  They didn’t want the public to notice them dozing off.
Another suspicious Obama associate, David Axelrod, is a former Chicago Tribune reporter who became Obama’s chief strategist and appears regularly on television as the face of the campaign. He once worked closely with David Simon Canter, a communist operative investigated by Congress as an agent of the Soviet Union. Axelrod was “within the extreme orbit of the old Chicago CPUSA [Communist Party] apparatus,” writes Professor Paul Kengor, author of a forthcoming book on Frank Marshall Davis and his Chicago and Hawaii networks.
Axelrod, who reportedly attended some counterterrorism meetings in the White House Situation Room, insists that the White House didn’t leak the national security information to the Times. With a straight face, he told ABC News that “the authors of all of this work”—The New York Times reporters—have made that assurance.
We see the damage being done, as Obama tries to look like an international tough guy in order to be re-elected. In addition to the leaks to The New York Times about U.S. policy toward Iran and al-Qaeda, producers of a film about the killing of Osama bin Laden, to be released before the November 6 presidential election, were given classified briefings at the Pentagon. Panetta denies anything improper was done, but Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has released emails from the CIA and Pentagon showing “unprecedented and potentially dangerous collaboration” between top Administration officials and the filmmakers. Judicial Watch obtained the documents.
King, however, runs the House Homeland Security Committee, with jurisdiction over the Islamic threat. What Congress needs, in order to get to the bottom of the scandal, are internal security committees or subcommittees in both houses. They were all abolished by congressional liberals in the 1970s.
It seems as though Republicans can’t come to grips with the nature of the problem that faces them and the country. A conservative attorney who has been probing into the backgrounds of Obama and his associates tells the story of attending a speech by Republican Rudolph Giuliani in 2011 and asking the former New York City mayor if he had ever considered the possibility that Obama was a mole. “What? A mole? God, I hope not,” was the response.
It is a serious charge to make, let alone mention in a printed piece such as this. Yet, the new book by retired U.S. intelligence analyst Christina Shelton, Alger Hiss: Why He Chose Treason, is a reminder of how and why questionable individuals get into positions of extraordinary power. Hiss was a founder of the United Nations because of his position as a high State Department official. He might have become Secretary of State, were it not for the revelations of communist defector Whittaker Chambers. A video on the website of Shelton’s book includes interesting information from the author about Hiss’s communist motivations.
It is significant that Anthony Lake, an adviser to and fundraiser for then-presidential candidate Obama in 2008, had previously withdrawn his nomination as Bill Clinton’s CIA director when outrage developed over his public doubts about Hiss’s guilt. That didn’t bother Obama, who took Lake’s advice and fundraising help and then gave him a job at the United Nations. A video shows Lake taking his oath of office as an “international civil servant of the United Nations.” The U.N. is notorious as a nest of spies.
Panetta’s background as a former member of Congress helped to make his confirmation process easy and fast. It worked. Now, Republican senators are reluctant to admit they made a mistake, as Panetta skillfully fends off charges that the Pentagon and the CIA released the secret information about the bin Laden raid to the pro-Obama filmmakers.
Conducting “bipartisan” investigations with the Democrats will not get the job done. Obama, whose foreign policy approval ratings are already better than Romney’s, is sitting pretty and laughing behind-the-scenes at the GOP. Our national security crumbles before our eyes, making the nation more vulnerable to what in the corporate world would be termed a “hostile takeover.”  The catch is that it is a takeover from within.

WASHINGTON – The handwritten message Barack Obama scrawled on a new building site at Ground Zero last night sounds optimistic, upbeat, non-controversial – at first glance.
However, the message continues a pattern of American leaders fulfilling an ancient biblical prophecy and a curse of judgment on the U.S., according to the best-selling Christian book of 2012 and the No. 1 faith movie.

While Obama was creating a stir in Manhattan with star-studded celebrity fundraisers, he also took a side trip that got less publicity. His official presidential business was a visit to the new World Trade Center building site where he signed a steel girder with a message of interest to the hundreds of thousands who have read “The Harbinger” or seen the video documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
“We remember,” he wrote. “We rebuild. We come back stronger!”
The book and the video have shocked readers and viewers around the country and the world by showing the eerie and striking parallels between the vows of the leaders of ancient Israel before its judgment and fall and those of American leaders since Sept. 11, 2001.
“What was foreshadowed in ‘The Harbinger’ and ‘The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment’ film is now being fulfilled by the president of the United States,” said Jonathan Cahn, the messianic rabbi-pastor and author.
The book and film specifically connect Obama’s words from his first State of the Union message in January 2009 with the ancient vow that brought judgment to ancient Israel.
“The ancient vow begins with these words: ‘The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild with hewn stone,’” explains Cahn. “The vow declares Israel’s defiance of God, in the face of a devastating strike on the land. The hewn stone, which begins the rebuilding, symbolizes the nation’s intention to come back stronger than before. The book then reveals the parallel a proclamation given by Obama:
“Tonight I want every American to know this: We will rebuild. And the United States of America will emerge stronger than before,” he said.
However, that comment, which represented the theme of his first major speech upon taking office, was not addressing the attack of 9/11. It was addressing the economy and the state of the country generally. Yesterday, Cahn points out, Obama returned to the location of the attack – bringing the message full circle.
He points out how Obama’s words even parallel a Bible commentary on the verse Isaiah 9:10: “They boasted that they would rebuild their devastated country and make it stronger than ever before.”
In “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the focal point of this vow of judgment is the tower rising up out of the ruins of Ground Zero. It comprises the fourth harbinger – and remains the one harbinger that is still under construction.
“On June 14, two of the mysteries of ‘The Harbinger,’ foreshadowed in the book came true,” explained Cahn. “Obama went to Ground Zero to see the still rising tower. He was given a beam which will constitute the tower’s final and highest beam. On the beam, the president wrote eight words – which were, in effect, a summation of the ancient vow of judgment: ‘We Remember, We Rebuild, We Come Back Stronger!’”
Cahn continued: “So now the now the tower will be crowned and finished with words paralleling Isaiah 9:10, the ancient vow of national judgment. The tower was begun with the laying down of a hewn stone, the very same object mentioned in Isaiah 9:10 which begins the rebuilding.”
“Now the words and the tower have been joined together in reality – and the one who did it was the president of the United States,” he told WND. “One subtle difference in the words, is that the vow is spoken in the future tense. But now the words inscribed on the towers are in the present tense. In other words, they not only speak of the defiant vow, but of the fact that the vow is being fulfilled. This,” says Cahn, “constitutes another ominous sign.”

The last time the tower at Ground Zero became the focus of media attention was April 30, 2012, the day it became the tallest building in New York City. In the chapter titled The Mystery Ground, “The Harbinger” provides the reader with a date that holds the key to the mystery behind Ground Zero – the same date – April 30.
In January, “The Harbinger,” by Cahn, a messianic rabbi from New Jersey, exploded onto the publishing scene, immediately becoming a surprise New York Times bestseller.
“A number of years ago, as I was standing at the edge of Ground Zero in New York City, I came across the first puzzle piece of an ancient biblical mystery and a prophetic message known as ‘The Harbinger’ that concerns the future of America,” explains Cahn, who helped write the two-hour documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
Cahn say he has since found nine harbingers that tie the problems America has experienced beginning Sept. 11, 2001, with parallels that led to the destruction of ancient Israel.
“Before God judges a nation, He sends warning,” explains Cahn. “He sent warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call, the call to return to God. But the nation responded with defiance. God then gave nine harbingers of judgment, nine prophetic signs, alarms and foreshadows of what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God’s will. And God likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike – the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance, but with defiance. And now the nine harbingers of judgment have reappeared and have done so on American soil.”
The WND Superstore offers an exclusive bundle that includes “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” at one low price.
Isaiah 9:10 is a verse in which Israel’s national leaders utter a vow of defiance following an attack by Assyria. It declared that the nation would not repent before God, but would defy Him instead. Cahn reveals in “The Harbinger” – and in even more dramatic fashion in the video – that beginning the day after Sept. 11, 2001, American leaders began repeating that 2,500-year-old vow, word for word.
He continues: “According to the ancient mystery revealed in the Book of Isaiah, if after that first calamity and warning, the nation doesn’t return to God but responds in defiance, it will end up triggering a second calamity. It was because of this ancient key, that, seven years after 9/11, the American economy collapsed. In the days after 9/11, the Federal Reserve slashed the base interest rate in an attempt to defy the consequences of the attacks. That action put us on the path leading to the collapse of the American economy seven years later. In 2008, the government made a second fatal mistake, another ill-fated financial decision, that would trigger the collapse of the American economy. Amazingly, it took place on the seventh anniversary of the uttering of the ancient vow on Capitol Hill.”
Cahn also reveals in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” something that readers and viewers universally find astonishing – that New York’s Ground Zero actually represents more than the former financial center of the country. It represents the exact place at which America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the country’s new leaders.
“When judgment came to Israel, the calamity returned the people’s attention to the place where the nation had been consecrated to God – the Temple Mount,” says Cahn. “God was calling the nation back to Himself. What about 9/11? Could there be, in the American calamity, as well, a mystery of return? Could there be a prophetic message hidden in the place where it happened? There is a place where America was consecrated to God in prayer. It is also a place linked to a prophetic warning given on that same day – uttered by the nation’s first president – now coming to pass.”

In 1789, newly inaugurated President George Washington gave a prophetic warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God. Later, the political leaders of the young nation gathered at St. Paul’s Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That chapel is located at Ground Zero and miraculously survived 9/11 virtually unscathed.
Cahn, the pastor of the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J., says America is uncannily re-enacting ancient Israel’s behavior prior to its judgment and eventual fall. He found a sympathetic ear for his message in WND founder Joseph Farah, who produced “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” as a follow-up to “The Harbinger.”
“I had a chance to hear Jonathan Cahn’s message last fall,” said Farah. “Then I had an opportunity to read an early manuscript of ‘The Harbinger’ before it was released in January. I was determined to produce this video documentary, ‘The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,’ because I believe its message is the most important one for Americans at this moment in history. In fact, I believe this project may be the most important one of my life. That’s how strongly I feel about it.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, Cahn says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version) what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today: “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: The sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.
But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place.
God, speaking through Isaiah explains what will happen as a result of their pride and arrogance and failure to heed the harbinger: Bigger and more potent attacks will follow. Because neither the northern kingdom of Israel nor the southern kingdom of Judah truly repents, the first is eventually swept away by Assyrian invaders and the latter is carried off into captivity by the Babylonians for 70 years.
But what does this have to do with the United States of America – particularly what the U.S. experienced on 9/11 and since? Cahn has found some eerie parallels.
“In the aftermath of the attack, the nation was stunned,” said Cahn. “Everyone was trying to make sense of what had happened – this unprecedented attack on America. The very next day, Sept. 12, then Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle presented America’s response to the world. And what did he say?”
Daschle said: “America will emerge from this tragedy as we have emerged from all adversity – united and strong. Nothing … nothing can replace the losses of those who have suffered. I know there is only the smallest measure of inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. But there is a passage in the Bible from Isaiah that speaks to all of us at times like this.”
He then went on to read Isaiah 9:10.
“Daschle has no idea what he is doing here,” explains Cahn. “He thinks he’s offering comforting words to a grief-stricken people, but he is actually embracing the spiritually defiant and arrogant words of the children of Israel, proclaiming the ancient and ominous vow of the leaders of that nation. He doesn’t realize it, but he is actually inviting more judgment on the nation.”
It might be of some significance that Daschle, one of the most powerful men in the nation when he spoke those words, later fell into disgrace – to the point where he couldn’t even serve in Barack Obama’s Cabinet.
That might have been the end of the story – if no other top leader in the nation uttered those strange and obscure words after 9/11. But that’s not the case.
On the third anniversary of the attack, Sept. 11, 2004, another powerful U.S. senator running for vice president that year and who would famously run for the presidency four years later, gave a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus.
This time, John Edwards’ entire speech was built on a foundation of Isaiah 9:10:
“Today, on this day of remembrance and mourning, we have the Lord’s Word to get us through,” he said. He then read Isaiah 9:10. He went on to talk about how America was doing just that – rebuilding with hewn stone and planting cedars.
In “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” viewers get to see these remarkable, largely forgotten or overlooked speeches, which directly link the events of 9/11 and the events referred to in Isaiah 9:10.
“Like Daschle, Edwards thinks he’s invoking inspirational and comforting words from the Bible, but he’s actually inviting judgment on America,” says Cahn. “He’s repeating the vow that provoked God to bring calamity on ancient Israel.”
Even more astonishing, Daschle and Edwards were not alone among U.S. leaders in making similar statements, as “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” shows.
But aside from such statements, which could be chalked up to political talk and coincidences, is there anything else linking Isaiah 9:10 to 9/11?
The video documentary, like the book, is full of shocking parallels. There was actually a very famous sycamore tree felled in the attack on the World Trade Center. It was replaced by trees in the same genus as the cedar. There have been many plans made to rebuild the twin towers bigger and better and a large “hewn stone” was actually quarried out of the Adirondack Mountains in New York and brought to Ground Zero as a cornerstone.
“The parallels are truly stunning,” says Farah, founder of WND, who produced the documentary for WND Videos. “In fact, they are overwhelming in their number and their exactitude. I am persuaded God is trying to tell America something and Rabbi Cahn has found the key to unlocking the message.”

MUST WATCH: Glenn buys young entrepreneur a puppy with $1,000 cup of lemonade

MUST WATCH: Glenn buys young entrepreneur a puppy with $1,000 cup of lemonade

See photos from Glenn’s event HERE
See photos from across the country HERE
Glenn hosted a “National Lemonade Stand, Bake Sale, and Hug-A-Thon” special on Wednesday night full of excitement, lemonade, dancing cupcakes, fried chicken, families, and good old fashioned summer fun – all LIVE from Babe’s Chicken in Cedar Hill, TX!

The highlight of the night may have been what happened after Glenn finished his monologue. After wrapping up and explaining why he decided to encourage people to hold lemonade stands across the country, he went to Pat and Stu in Babe’s parking lot to talk to some of the young kids at their lemonade stand. One girl had a sign saying she had no licenses, forms, or permits – she was just a nine year old who wanted to raise enough money to buy a puppy. Pat asked her if she got a hundred dollars, how much would she give to charity? She said 75%.
And then he shocked her by asking how much she would give to charity if she got a thousand dollars!
The young girl took a look at the money, screamed in excitement, and quickly went to fill a glass for Pat and Stu. Pat laughed and said the money was from Glenn and Tania who wanted her to get that puppy she wanted. The puppy cost a little over a hundred dollars – and she donated the rest to Mercury One.
Earlier in the show, Glenn, who may have made a bad choice wearing four layers in the Texas heat, delivered a powerful monologue about the importance of entrepreneurialism. He focused on the way that out of control regulation has hobbled kids from going out and do something as easy as setting up a lemonade stand. He explained that when you’re a kid, lemonade stands can be an entryway to capitalism. When it’s a hot day and you find out that people will give you money for a cold glass of lemonade – that’s a lesson! And you find out you can take that money and buy something (a puppy!) or save it or give it to charity – again, an important lesson.
But laws and regulations passed under the guise of “protecting people” now say that the lemonade a little kid makes and sells outside their house may not meet certain standards or their stand doesn’t meet some ridiculous criteria. In New York City, you have to file IRS forms and permits before opening a lemonade stand. In fact, you even have to take a fifteen hour food protection course! These rules don’t protect us, they stop the next generation from learning about entrepreneurship and capitalism. (video after the ad below)

Dear Reader:

We've seen some scary things in the past three and a half years. Let us tell you about the most frightening.

Obama's EPA and its radical environmentalist cronies are quietly moving to dramatically expand the EPA's already vast power.

An emboldened EPA is acting right now to usurp unprecedented power over the American economy, threatening our independence, killing major industries and destroying jobs.

The EPA already boldly vetoed a project after final approval by local, state and other federal agencies!

As the courts continue to rule on this EPA veto, now they're attempting to unilaterally prohibit a project before an application is even submitted.

Unchecked and emboldened by past actions, the EPA is seizing power from every state and local government.

The EPA's goal – unprecedented veto power to kill any project in the country without due process and without the input of other local, state and federal agencies – will give them near total control over energy, mining and construction decisions in the United States.

Scare you?

It should.

But you can do something about it. Stop them from taking the first step down this slippery slope.

Here's their secret plan.

First, find a convenient project that little is known about to use as a political target.

Second, spread fear and misinformation about the project through powerful environmental organizations.

Third, use fear of the project to have the EPA swoop in and stop the project before it's even applied for a permit.

The real goal of their secret agenda is the biggest expansion of the Clean Water Act in its 40-year history.
If the EPA is successful in a preemptive veto – meaning answering "no" before anyone asks – it will establish a new precedent and give the EPA a powerful new weapon to kill projects such as home-building, manufacturing, infrastructure, energy plants, even farms at the will of powerful environmental groups.

This will make the EPA the most powerful agency in the nation and cripple the American economy.

Think it can't happen? Well it already is.

The target – this time – is the Pebble deposit in remote rural Alaska.

Pebble is a potential mine that sits on state lands designated for mining.

Pebble just happens to be the largest mineral deposit ever discovered in the U.S. It could pump billions into our economy and provide domestic supplies of resources needed for manufacturing and national defense applications.

After eight years and $500 million in exploration and planning Pebble is still in the process of developing mine plans to extract the resources in an environmentally sensitive manner. Only after they go through a rigorous permitting process will the project be able to move forward.

Yet the EPA, as part of its secret plan, is exploiting the opposition to the project, which is driven by well-funded groups that want to stop American mining.

The EPA recently released a 1,000 page sham draft watershed assessment of the Bristol Bay area based on impacts from a hypothetical mine and completed in record time for the EPA (nine months).

The study is being used as the excuse for EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to issue a blanket permit veto for all projects in the area – before they have even proposed a plan or applied for permits.

We need to stop the sham study and the preemptive vetoes to follow in its tracks before it's too late.

Think they won't stop here? Well on the same day the Bristol Bay draft study was released, environmentalists called for the same action to be used in the Great Lakes.

Where will they go after that? Your state?

The most important thing you can do today is help us slow down the EPA by demanding a 120-day public comment extension on the Bristol Bay watershed assessment.

If successful, the EPA will have near total control over the American economy. They will have reach into nearly every project in America.

Click here to tell the EPA to slow down and stop the power grab.

If the EPA is not stopped, similar studies will be initiated throughout the country, throwing economic investment into chaos and destroying the American economy.

We can sit back and put the EPA in the driver's seat or we can stop this power grab. Enough is enough.

$24 Million a Year for Something Americans Do Not Want: The Draft

Written by Gary North on June 14, 2012
Print Friendly
A generation ago, during the Vietnam War, President Nixon abolished the draft. That did more to end the protests than anything he ever did. It was a smart political move.
Yet the Selective Service organization rumbles on. This is a basic rule in Washington: no bureaucracy is allowed to die.
The Government Accountability Office has concluded that the draft could not be reinstated for at least nine months under present staffing. The GAO has prepared a report, which it has sent to the heads of the House and Senate Armed Services Committee.
The government has not examined its draft policies and the Selective Service System since 1994.
The agency is still supposed to keep active records of all American males who are eligible for service.
The military insists that the all-volunteer armed forces are mandatory, that the draft would no longer work in today’s high-tech world. There has been no draft since 1973. But that does not mean that the Selective Service System has been shut down.
The Selective Service System has cut personnel steadily since 1997. With a current staff budget for 130 full-time civilian employees and 175 part-time reserve forces officers, the agency would not be able to deliver the first draft inductees to Defense until 285 days after mobilization, according to GAO.
Selective Service is asking for $24.4 million for fiscal 2013.
In interviewing Selective Service System officials about potential alternatives to their agency, GAO found difficulties in replicating a database of eligible service members. Though other government agencies — including the Social Security Administration, Department of Motor Vehicles and Census Bureau — maintain similar databases of U.S. citizens, each has inherent flaws. A database of all Social Security participants, for example, would neglect immigrants with no Social Security number.
We do not need this organization. But no one in authority comes out and says, “Shut it down.” That would be considered far too radical.
So, the spending never goes down.

Revealed: 64 Drone Bases on American Soil

We like to think of the drone war as something far away, fought in the deserts of Yemen or the mountains of Afghanistan. But we now know it’s closer than we thought. There are 64 drone bases on American soil. That includes 12 locations housing Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles, which can be armed.
Public Intelligence, a non-profit that advocates for free access to information, released a map of military UAV activities in the United States on Tuesday. Assembled from military sources — especially this little-known June 2011 Air Force presentation (.pdf) – it is arguably the most comprehensive map so far of the spread of the Pentagon’s unmanned fleet. What exact missions are performed at those locations, however, is not clear. Some bases might be used as remote cockpits to control the robotic aircraft overseas, some for drone pilot training. Others may also serve as imagery analysis depots.
The medium-size Shadow is used in 22 bases, the smaller Raven in 20 and the miniature Wasp in 11. California and Texas lead the pack, with 10 and six sites, respectively, and there are also 22 planned locations for future bases. ”It is very likely that there are more domestic drone activities not included in the map, but it is designed to provide an approximate overview of the widespread nature of Department of Defense activities throughout the US,” Michael Haynes from Public Intelligence tells Danger Room.
The possibility of military drones (as well as those controlled by police departments and universities) flying over American skies have raised concerns among privacy activists. As the American Civil Liberties Union explained in its December 2011 report, the machines potentially could be used to spy on American citizens. The drones’ presence in our skies “threatens to eradicate existing practical limits on aerial monitoring and allow for pervasive surveillance, police fishing expeditions, and abusive use of these tools in a way that could eventually eliminate the privacy Americans have traditionally enjoyed in their movements and activities.”
As Danger Room reported last month, even military drones, which are prohibited from spying on Americans, may “accidentally” conduct such surveillance — and keep the data for months afterwards while they figure out what to do with it. The material they collect without a warrant, as scholar Steven Aftergood revealed, could then be used to open an investigation.
The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the U.S. military from operating on American soil, and there’s no evidence that drones have violated it so far.
This new map comes almost two months after the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) revealed another one, this time of public agencies – including police departments and universities – that have a permit issued by the Federal Aviation Agency to use UAVs in American airspace.
“It goes to show you how entrenched drones already are,” said Trevor Timm, an EFF activist, when asked about the new map. “It’s clear that the drone industry is expanding rapidly and this map is just another example of that. And if people are worried about military technology coming back and being sold in the US, this is just another example how drone technology is probably going to proliferate in the US very soon.”
Domestic proliferation isn’t the same as domestic spying, however. Most — if not all — of these military bases would make poor surveillance centers. Many of the locations are isolated, far from civilian populations. Almost half of the bases on the map work only with the relatively small Raven and Shadow drones; their limited range and endurance make them imperfect spying tools, at best. It’s safe to assume that most of the bases are just used for military training.
Privacy concerns aside, the biggest issue might be safety, as we were been reminded on Monday when a giant Navy drone crashed in Maryland.
