9:30 AM - Pharmakeia and End Times Deception
The New Yorker article cites the case of a man whose cancer had spread throughout his body and was given no hope of recovery by his doctors. Facing death drove him to seek options to relieve his extreme anxiety. Quoting researchers, Pollan writes, "Cancer patients receiving just a single dose of psilocybin experienced immediate and dramatic reductions in anxiety and depression, improvements that were sustained for at least six months…. People who had been palpably scared of death—they lost their fear." Novelist and drug proponent Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) is often quoted for support regarding using psychedelics with terminal patients "in the hope that it would make dying a more spiritual, less strictly physiological process." Huxley, a humanist and anti-Christian, was injected with LSD at his deathbed. His "spiritual" process (read hallucination ) may have given him temporal relief, but his ecstasy, according to the Scriptures, eased him into an eternal separation from his Creator in a place where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth in darkness forever (Matthew:22:13). The Word of God would have us think about death and what follows as life's most critical consideration .
Huxley's so-called spiritual process has been an important subject of many of the researchers. Pollan writes, "Perhaps the most influential and rigorous of these early studies was the Good Friday experiment, conducted in 1962 by Walter Pahnke, a psychiatrist and minister working on a Ph.D. dissertation under [Timothy] Leary at Harvard. In a double-blind experiment, twenty divinity students received a capsule of white powder right before a Good Friday service at Marsh Chapel, on the Boston University campus; ten contained psilocybin, ten an active placebo (nicotinic acid). Eight of the ten students receiving psilocybin reported a mystical experience, while only one in the control group experienced a feeling of 'sacredness' and a 'sense of peace.' (Telling the subjects apart was not difficult, rendering the double-blind a somewhat hollow conceit: those on the placebo sat sedately in their pews while the others lay down or wandered around the chapel, muttering things like 'God is everywhere' and 'Oh, the glory!')." Further evaluation of the experiment noted that some of the subjects had to be given antipsychotic drugs in order to counter the side effects of psilocybin. For some of the early researchers "it was difficult not to conclude that they were suddenly in possession of news with the power to change the world—a psychedelic gospel."
What then of this "gospel" from a biblical perspective? It contributes to a fulfillment of what the Scriptures indicate will be an end-times deception. It is referred to as sorcery . The term in Revelation:9:21 and 18:23 in the Greek is pharmakeia , which Vine's Expository Dictionary defines as "the use or the administering of drugs." Galatians:5:20 translates the term pharmakeia (from which we get our word pharmacy) as witchcraft . It should be apparent from those scriptures that drugs will play a major part in the "strong delusion" of the Last Days (2 Thessalonians:2:11). Revelation:18:23 declares that "thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived." Furthermore, the commitment to the use of drugs will be so strong that even after God pours out His wrath upon the earth during the Great Tribulation none will repent of their sorceries (Revelation:9:20-21).

10:56 PM - Big Pharma's Role in Mass Shootings
Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it's not the weapons used.
The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.
Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 " Mainstream Media " reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.
The following list of mass shooting perpetrators and the drugs they were taking or had been taking shortly before their horrific actions was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident. Is there a link between Noveske's death and his "outting" of information numerous disparate parties would prefer to suppress, for a variety of reasons?
Reader comment on Ammoland
"My story is a sad one, my wife who was a brilliant woman highly educated Mensa member 2 credits from me calling her doctor took her own life because she was on anti depressants. Cynthia, my wife was transformed by these drugs into a person that did not care about her own life anymore or anybody else's. The drugs changed her from a beautiful woman of 38 to a shell of what I one knew. To say there is no correlation between drugs and violence is a crazy statement in of itself as we all react differently when these foreign substances are introduced into the body, the effects are not completely known. Do they preform more good or are they hidden evil waiting for a chance to rear there
ugly aftereffects, If you ask me I think the latter. Cynthia at the age of 38 with everything to live for killed herself with my 45 cal hand gun in our garage leave a mess is what the note said, It also said that she loved me but this was the only way she could find peace in her own mind. I love her I always will, I will miss her till my last breath. I don't blame her I blame the drugs and big Parma pushers they know the side effects they just don't car about collateral damage they only care about the revenue stream and getting and staying rich and in control. You can't blame the gun it can't move on its own it needs a human to control it."
4:04 PM - Oklahoma Supreme Court Orders Ten Commandments Removed
After the Supreme Court's week of high-profile decisions, Oklahoma's high court made a stir of its own in a ruling that had a group of self-proclaimed Satanists and an ordained Baptist minister celebrating.
The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the state must remove a 6-foot tall granite monument of the Ten Commandments from its capitol because it violates the state's constitutional ban against the use of public funds or property to benefit a religion.
The decision came after years of controversy and legal battles. The monument's supporters include prominent figures in the state, including Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and members of the state's legislature.
In an interview with CNN affiliate KOCO, Bruce Prescott, an ordained Baptist minister and one of the plaintiffs in the suit against the display, said, "I'm not opposed to Ten Commandments monuments. I'm just opposed to the placement on government property, because I think that the government needs to be neutral."
8:37 AM - The Right Perspective
Stepping back and looking at the bigger picture will ease the anger in your heart. NONE of this matters. America's demise doesn't matter; not in the light of our eternal home! Losing friends or family who criticize our refusal to back down from abiding by what the Word says certainly hurts but in the big picture, it doesn't matter. They will have to answer for their decisions. Being fired from a job for not capitulating to the pressure of 'celebrating' someone's gay marriage does not matter. Seriously. All that matters now is pleasing Jesus.
This world is passing away. Our bodies are aging and decaying. Our houses, cars and careers constantly need upkeep and maintenance. The local, national and international news gets darker every day. All of creation moans and groans for the return of the Lord Jesus. We're surrounded by filth, sickness, disappointment, poverty, corruption, hatred, violence, lies and death every day.
Why in the world would we want to stay here?! What's to mourn? What's to fight for? Nothing, that's what! Let's go out with a bang and make the enemy nuts by displaying Christ's love to each person we meet. Let's trust our Heavenly Father to protect and provide for us amidst the destruction to come until we're snatched off this God-forsaking earth. Let's allow HIM to vindicate us and make all things right and new.

Church-run Schools in Israel Face ‘Death Sentence’
Community leaders fear that Netanyahu’s party is seeking to curb educational opportunities for the Palestinian minority
Israel is seeking to bring dozens of church-run schools under government control, a move that community leaders have warned will curb the last vestiges of educational freedom for the country’s large Palestinian minority.
Most of the 47 schools, which are among the highest-achieving in Israel, were established by Christian orders more than 100 years ago, before Israel’s creation in 1948.
Today, they are among the few independent schools catering to Israel’s community of 1.5 million Palestinian citizens, who make up one-fifth of the population. The schools are attended by about 33,000 children – some 5 percent of the Palestinian school-age population – and employ 3,000 teachers.
Israel segregates the country’s education system based on ethnicity.
Palestinian leaders say the church-run schools, which educate Christians and Muslims, are the only hope for most families trying to escape dire conditions in the government-run Arab education system.

8:37 AM - Beware of the Fear Mongers
That's not what the Bible teaches. Jesus plainly taught that the heathen world WORRIES about what they are going to eat, drink, and wear. You had better take heed to what the Lord Jesus Christ said in Luke 12:15,20...
Luke 12:15 and 20, "And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. ... But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?"
Jesus immediately follows this warning about the foolish rich man by telling us not to worry about earthly provisions, because God will provide for us. It is a sin to worry about what we will eat, drink, and wear tomorrow. You can't trust God and worry at the same time.
Certainly, there is a healthy concern that is justified, planning for emergencies and being diligent to plan ahead; however, I see a lot of scare-mongering and fear-mongering today, ridiculously so, causing people to unreasonably worry. If you are more concerned about your financial future than you are about winning souls to Jesus Christ, then you are not right with God. If you are more concerned about storing food and ammunition than you are about searching the Scriptures and sinning less, then you are not right with God.
8:31 AM - Former Homosexual Says Dominance is the Goal

8:27 AM - Vatican Unapologetic for Past Genocide
Professor Agostino Borromeo [pictured at left], historian of Catholicism at the Sapienza University in Rome, says the Inquisition wasn’t as bad as it has been made out to be. He is the editor of a 783-page report issued by the Vatican which claims, for example, that only 1% of the 125,000 people tried by church courts as suspected heretics in Spain were executed (“Historians say Inquisition wasn’t that bad,” The Guardian, London, June 16, 2004).
Catholic Cardinal Georges Cottier agrees with the report’s findings and says Rome shouldn’t “ask for pardon for deeds which aren’t there.”
In fact, it has been estimated by careful and reputable historians that 50 million people were slaughtered for the crime of “heresy” by Roman persecutors between the AD 606 and the middle of the 19th century. This is the number cited by historian John Dowling, who published the classic “History of Romanism” in 1847 (book VIII, chapter 1, footnote 1).
8:26 AM - The Beatles: Idols of CCM Musicians
One of the reasons why we are opposed to Contemporary Christian Music is its worldliness, its refusal to separate from the world. Contemporary Christian musicians make no attempt to hide the fact that they love secular rock & roll and they have no shame for doing so. When asked in interviews about their musical influences and their favorite music, invariably they list some raunchy secular rock musicians.
And one of the rock groups that CCM musicians love is the Beatles.
The Beatles' influence in creating the modern New Age pop culture is incalculable. Brian Epstein, the Beatles' homosexual manager, said in 1964, "The children of the 21st century will be listening to the Beatles," and he was right ("Beatles Business: Still Making Money 50 Years One," CNBC, Jan. 24, 2014). They have sold some 2.3 BILLION albums and records. In June 2012 they were had the number one hit on iTunes, nearly a half century after they first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show on their rocket launch to super-stardom. The compilation album of their No. 1 hits released in 2000 was the top-selling album between 2000 and 2010. Beatles courses are taught at universities.
And the Beatles are loved and appreciated as much by the contemporary Christian music crowd as by the unbelieving world at large.
8:25 AM - Why a Black Man Waves the Confederate Flag
This book is about truth and passion.
What makes this book dangerous is its raw honesty. Mr. Hervey lifts the veil of Black decadence at the same time he exposes the lies and political correctness of modern day America. Mr. Hervey said "I show that the Civil War was not fought over slavery and that the demise of my race in America is not of the White man, but rather of our own making. In this book I show how Blacks in America ran away from physical bondage to one far worse-- mental bondage."
A percentage of the proceeds of the sale of this book will aid Mr. Hervey in his legal defense for his false imprisonment and a percentage will be donated to the preservation of Southern Heritage. A financial contribution will be given to the victims of Katrina both Black and White.

10:26 PM - Economic Collapse and Martial Law This Fall?
Many Christians are involved in this movement to prepare for the worst or flee. Here is one such example. Chuck Missler and his wife moved to New Zealand and Chuck believes in the pre-trib rapture as I do. Whether or not America is end time economic Babylon is highly debatable. Personally I do not believe fleeing is a proper Christian response. It goes against everything the New Testament teaches and conveys a message of cowardice and preference to saving one's physical life over being salt and light to a wicked and perverse culture. Revelation 18:4 has been taken out of context and misused by many. Even if America is the economic Babylon in Revelation, and I agree until a better candidate arises, the Church will not be here when God's wrath is unleashed upon it. Fleeing America is not something the average person can do anyway. And perceived benefits may quickly disappear as it has in the past in many south American countries. The NWO is going to be worldwide and there will be no escape anywhere on earth except for a Jewish remnant God miraculously preserves. Until God calls us home the best place to be is in familiar territory, preferably away from large cities. Stan Deyo and his wife moved from Australia back to America several years ago. Another thing to keep in mind is that a lot of these predictions come from those making money from their fear mongering. Steve Quayle in particular has been yearly predicting imminent catastrophe of one kind or another for at least 30 years. There are a number of posts still on the internet of failed predictions of imminent economic collapse and martial law. Here is one for 2010. Economic Collapse – Martial Law – 24 Experts Warn of 2010 Meltdown And of course who can forget Y2K and the many Christians predicting the worst.
All that said this is the end times and almost anything could happen as things gradually deteriorate, especially as America increasingly ridicules and mocks God. I do believe a severe stock market correction is overdue and it is always a good idea to prepare for short term emergencies. But when it comes to economic forecasting and gloom and doom in general the majority is almost always wrong whether it's in mainstream society or the freedom movement. For my whole life I have never been one to follow the crowd. Mr. Skousen addressed the topic in his newsletter last week and with permission I have excepted a significant part of it here. Though he is in the preparedness movement and believes in a post trib rapture few people can match his geo-political expertise. Breaks in the article are indicated by dotted lines. And with this post I am going to take a rest from so much news.

WILL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE PREDICTIONS FINALLY COME TRUE THIS FALL?
Each year about this time there are several internet analysts predicting a massive economic collapse in October. This year it is a tsunami of hype that may or may not come true. Even Ron Paul’s comments about the un-sustainability of the dollar and the collapse of the entire US financial system added fuel to the fire. But my biggest issue is with the predictions of imminent collapse. In the past four or five years that I have been tracking these collapse predictions, they always come up empty. Sadly, rather than admit error, the collapse crowd peddles the same theme next year with even more scary scenarios. Most analysts are not wrong about the root problems of debt, speculation and fiat money, but they do not understand or address the massive manipulation of the markets by government and the powers of the FED—who can keep things going and postpone collapse until war comes when they will claim it is not their fault. This week, I will explain why any collapse prediction is invalid without coming to grips with the power of manipulation and the fact that there are no signs that globalists are maneuvering to let it fall.
October seems to be the favored month to trigger market crashes considering the manipulated stock market crashes of 1929 and 1987, but September is also historically a bad month. This time the shaky European bond market is providing fodder for the “sky is falling” crowd, where big liquidity problems threaten to create panic. The irrational US stock market, on the other hand, continues to rise, driven by new money from the FED and the same bandwagon effect that got people in trouble in 1929. The big difference between now and then, as I just mentioned, is the degree of control the FED has over money creation, interest rates, and secret relationships with “Too Big to Fail” banks and Wall Street investment houses that are used as conduits for liquidity injections into the markets in order to cause, halt, or take advantage of panic buying or selling.
I think the notion that the PTB have it calendared for this fall is disinformation. The real insiders would know a more precise time frame (so these few can make money off the collapse rather than go down with it). This “insider tip” about getting prepared implies that the PTB intend to create more than just economic chaos. Many pundits on the conservative side keep saying (based on other bogus insiders like the “DHS informant”) that the globalist-engineered collapse will cause social unrest which, in turn, will justify martial law.
This is very bad analysis because the government would clearly get the blame. The only way to trigger a full collapse is to cut the money supply drastically and fail to provide liquidity when thousands of speculators are in trouble. There are hundreds of FED watchers who would know to the day when the FED cut the money supply and caused a collapse.
But if they wait until the coming world war then they can blame all these horrific changes on the enemy—which is why the globalists are so eager to provoke the war. It has worked before and it will work again, diverting the blame from them to the war. These globalists aren’t stupid and always seek to use deception and crises to cover for their evil agenda.
Snyder’s praise is a very selective recitation of Williams’ track record focusing only on the few times he has been right. What Snyder fails to tell his readers is that Williams was predicting collapse, based on his insider’s tips from 2010 through 2012. And he predicted collapse on and off during 2013 and 2014 until he retracted them for a brief time knowing that his track record was so dismal.
I’m absolutely certain that Williams is being played for a fool by his contacts. As I’ve written before in the WAB, nobody who is an insider is going to get away with leaking the globalist’s intentions to someone like Pastor Williams (who may be sincere) who will parade those tips to the whole world—at least not without getting caught. The NSA tracks all communications, especially those of insiders to make sure no one “talks out of school.” If this source keeps talking to Williams it is only because it is planned and he is spreading disinformation to make Williams look like a fool—which he is for believing him.
As you can see, all of these were wrong on timing. But they’ll be right eventually—in a way. It’s true that fiat money always ends badly, but the financial PTB know this and don’t want to be left holding the bag. That’s why they will continue to keep up the illusion of recovery until there is a sufficient external crisis (probably war) that will justify a new world fiat currency—and it won’t be a gold-backed currency despite the wishful thinking of those hyping China’s accumulation of gold reserves.
Ron Paul rightly believes that continual deficits and money creation cannot continue indefinitely. But he clearly doesn’t understand that the FED can keep things afloat a lot longer by keeping overall inflation of the money supply below 10%-15%. He also doesn’t have much understanding of the coming war agenda, which is the globalist’s escape manuever to avoid blame. Ron doesn’t even see the Russian threat. Like most libertarians, he kind of assumes that all the enemies of the globalists must be our friends. Not true.
Not seeing the crisis creation path of war, it’s easy for Ron to get caught up in the collapse predictions based upon the economy’s shaky fundamentals. That’s why he’s been hired on to imminent collapse predictors including Stansberry Research who pays him for his commentary. Stansberry is a perennial collapse prediction firm that sells alternative investment plans and buys time on alternative news web sites to promote their interviews with Paul. That’s why Ron Paul’s collapse predictions are everywhere on the web.
As for the claims by the collapse crowd that the dollar is about to implode let me reiterate some very clear arguments I made in that 2012 WAB about what has to happen for a currency to collapse to occur. None of these are happening yet and my arguments have not been addressed by the collapse crowd:
Let me quickly review, once again, the reasons why a collapse or devaluation of the dollar, hyperinflation, or the dollar quickly losing its reserve currency status is not imminent and can’t happen quickly any time in the next few years:
1) Collapse: Collapse of a currency can only happen if it becomes relatively worthless in a short period of time. Inflation of the currency at high rates is the only thing that can cause this, ending either in devaluation and/or hyperinflation. Neither of these are real threats to the dollar currently despite the huge debt crisis.
2) Devaluation: Devaluation happens when a currency value is pegged to another at a fixed exchange rate, and the smaller currency inflates at a more rapid rate than the pegged currency causing an imbalance in demand which eventually causes the peg to be broken and a new fixed rate set. The dollar isn’t pegged to anything—it’s the standard. In a non-pegged system an informal devaluation can only occur if the dollar is being inflated at a much higher rate than other currencies. That isn’t happening because every other currency is inflating about the same rate proportional to their base as is the dollar. In fact, other currencies approve of US inflation, because it allows them to inflate their currency while maintaining the same relative exchange rate with the dollar.
3) Hyperinflation: Two things must be present for hyperinflation to happen. First, you must start with a relatively small money supply that can be expanded multiple times. The dollar base is so large, after having been inflated and spread around the world for so long that it literally can’t be inflated rapidly as compared to smaller currencies. The quantity of dollars in circulation is estimated at $300 trillion (not counting the huge non-monetized economy of derivatives, contracts and hedges perhaps as big as $500T). The FED could create $30T a year and it wouldn’t exceed 10% inflation rate. Even that huge amount isn’t hyperinflation, which results in panic spending due to rapidly rising prices. Second, a nation has to have an automatic injection mechanism to put increasing quantities of money into the pockets of consumers so they can keep up with rising prices, otherwise the inflation kills stops economic growth. We don’t have that, and what we do have (food stamps, unemployment compensation, Soc. Sec., etc,) isn’t effectively indexed to inflation. Without the public’s ability to get more money each month as in Germany in 1936, the economy retracts as people can’t keep up, and spending decreases—again stopping hyperinflation and causing stagflation.
4) Loss of Reserve Status. This also can’t happen anytime soon since the dollar base is so much larger than any other currency. You’d have to print up probably 5 times the existing quantities of Euros to supplant the dollar and that would have devastating inflationary effects on the Eurozone. The same with the British Pound. No one would trust the Chinese Yen because there’s no transparency there either. What about a basket of currencies? —The same problem exists there as in the EU—even their strict rules about one nation expanding their Euros over another, the southern tier of nations found ways of cheating. No one can trust any of these voluntary agreements anymore.
If there is a real threat right now, it’s the huge derivatives and hedge fund bubble—trillions of dollars committed in contracts but almost without actual asset backing. No big paper investment happens today with CDS derivative insurance or hedging, and little of that can actually be paid to the beneficiary if a sufficient crisis develops. However, this mainly affects the huge speculative economy—and these have the most power to get a bailout from their fellows at the FED.
Rather than see a collapse coming this year or even by 2014, I think we are going to see another mild inflationary recovery (not a true recovery), but one where inflation finally starts to overpower deflationary forces and people start to spend again, and hire. It won’t be big, but it will help the PTB extend this debt spiral until the end of the decade where even bigger world conflicts will help them escape final blame. Don’t underestimate the power of the PTB to keep inflating enough to stave off default and yet keep inflation below 10%.
That said, we are dealing with conspiracies here—and the PTB could simply decide to pull the plug on the economy. All they would have to do is stop intervening in the huge derivative market to keep those contracts from defaulting, as they have been recently in Europe. The derivatives bubble is by far the largest ponzi scheme ever—trillions in promises to pay without any means to make good on all those promises, even after the hedges balance out the excess exposure.
In fact, the derivative mess has been threatening to collapse ever since AIG in 2008, and yet the financial PTB continue to stop the derivative contracts from being collected on. In Europe, for example, they kept insisting that no default had occurred when investors in Greek bonds had to take a 50% haircut (loss on their bond investments). Hence no one could make good on those CDS default swap insurance policies (which are sold as guarantees on all these big risky investments). They change the rules all the time, and control the higher powers that might rule those changes illegal. I think they can keep this up for several more years.
One of the most dramatic warnings about collapse came from Alex Jones in his special video alert relaying how he had “two different calls” from “extremely prominent wealthy people” warning him about what is coming by the end of this year and asking him why he isn’t leaving the United States “before October.” He concludes that “the elite” are leaving the country and you should too.
I think that’s an incorrect deduction about the elite. The real insider elite aren’t leaving the country, even though some do have offshore residences and most have offshore bank accounts. The elite are even building sheltering structures under their resort homes because they know a nuclear war is coming.
Yes, there is a wave of wealthy people, like the ones calling Alex, hell bent on getting out of the country to what they think are safe havens like Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. As the most noted author in the country on Strategy Relocation, I get tons of calls about off-shore retreat strategies, but I can’t recommend them. It’s not a smart strategy at all.
These people labor under the very mistaken impression that somehow the rest of the world is not going to be affected by the eventual collapse of the US dollar and the US economy, which isn’t true. All of these foreign destinations are heavily reliant on world trade, tourism and the stability of the dollar. All of their budgets are in deficit—some worse than others—but none are going to be able to provide American ex-patriots the current cheap, peaceful expat lifestyle they all read about on the net.
Worse yet for the Pacific island retreats is the threat of conquest in the next world war. China is planning to conquer their part of the world—exactly like Japan did in WWII—to seize all of the island territory on the Pacific ring. This will include Australia (where China has already bought up all the mineral rights), New Zealand and the Pacific islands. Try factoring in a Chinese occupation into your retreat plans (and the need to blend in or hide in order to survive) and the US begins to look pretty good.
A lot of people think they are going to be able to avoid the affects of the coming nuclear war by being in South America or in the Pacific. Yes, it’s true, there probably won’t be many nuclear targets in those areas, but that’s only a small part of the threats you face in war. Almost half the nations in South America presently have outright communist or former communist leaders who are actively promoting ties with Russia and China. Every nation will have to choose sides in a world war and with the growing reputation of the US as the bully of the world I wouldn’t count on a favorable long-term reception for Americans in foreign countries.
When these nation’s socialist welfare budgets become even more bankrupt than they are (look at Venezuela) the rapacious Left goes after foreign property owners and bank accounts first. Mexico has confiscated dollar accounts twice already.
Some summary comments: While I have spoken out vigorously against the imminent collapse of the dollar and the entire fiat money system short of war (which is still a few years away), I do believe it is likely that there will be a significant correction in both the bond and stock markets—as much as 20%. If that happens this fall, the collapse crowd will say it’s a collapse, but it won’t be. The FED will intervene and it has a lot more room to expand the money supply before reaching high levels of inflation.
Remember, that economies NEVER completely collapse except under conditions of war where there is a major destruction and dislocation of structures and people—or hyperinflation, which is unlikely without any formal indexing system to allow people to keep paying higher and higher prices.
6:39 PM - A Most Dangerous Teaching
Even a friend told me of a local man that rejected the offer of salvation and approaching death changed his mind. He would have given anything to be saved but the offer had been withdrawn by God. NOW is the day of salvation. For some God may be patient to old age. But not for all. Nobody can be saved apart from the Holy Spirit. If that happens now in this age of free grace what makes Bill Salus believe there will be an exception after the Church is gone? Even if he were correct his teaching is a very risky belief.

6:10 PM - Hatred of the American South
The south has been hated by outsiders ever since the north won the war and everything is being done to exterminate our culture. The simple reason being that southerners in general are an independent people that resent elitist outsiders from telling us how to live our lives. Yankees like our climate but many with power and money try to change our culture. Most yankees that have never lived here only view the south through stereotyped Hollywood images that have forever ridiculed southerners as backward and stupid.
Southern heritage has nothing to do with racial superiority. The south didn't invent slavery. The north was first. And blacks were enslaving themselves in Africa long before white man started doing it.
Washington D.C. bureaucrats and their shills in the north and south are more racist than anybody. Just look at how they have attempted to exterminate the black race through abortion and destruction of the family. The hypocrisy in the Confederate flag attack is so thick you can almost cut it with a knife. The NWO cannot be achieved unless everyone is forced into the same mold of compliance, assimilated into one giant 'borg' of slavery to the elite.
Even my local newspaper last week published a syndicated southern column damning the Confederate flag. My response is below the following article excerpt.
'Southern culture is being exterminated': Hundreds rally to PROTECT the Confederate flag after black activist is arrested for pulling it down outside South Carolina state building
Almost 1,000 men, women and children gathered in Montgomery, Alabama, to defend the flag

The Insanity of Political Correctness
Editor Tom Crawford and Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention are a disgrace to the south and everything it stands for, or should stand for. Neither acknowledges the true history of the south or the War of Northern Aggression, incorrectly called the Civil War, but shamelessly use those murdered in Charleston as an excuse to promote the irrational liberal agenda of political correctness. If anything the American flag should be taken down for the atrocities committed under that banner overwhelm those under the Confederate flag. From the genocide of thousands of American Indians to innocent men, women, and children in Iraq and Afghanistan it continues on. All nation flags are symbols of governments that are morally bankrupt and corrupt as the Supreme Court once again proved in America last Friday.
The Confederate flag never was a symbol of slavery until radical groups on the left and right used it to promote their own agendas. The KKK also used the cross in it's racist attacks. Is the cross a symbol of racism? Why no demand to remove it from public display? After Friday's Supreme Court decision that too may change.
Slavery of blacks also existed in the north but only because of their different economy was it not profitable enough to be widespread. Morally it was accepted. How come nobody acknowledges that? Most southerners never owned slaves and it was already declining before the war. And how come nobody ever mentions the black Confederates and their ancestors who to this day are proud of their Confederate heritage defending the south from Washington D.C.'s unconstitutional aggression? These proud black people are completely ignored by establishment media and it's shills like Crawford and Moore. The end of the Civil War didn't stop the war against the south. It continues to this day.
Do a Startpage.com and Youtube search of "black confederates". You might come to realize that you have been lied to in our schools of indoctrination. Black columnist Walter E. Williams has an excellent piece on black confederates here. (http://www.creators.com/opinion/walter-williams/virginia-s-black-confederates.html) And here you see black men proudly displaying the Confederate flag. (http://www.revisionisthistory.org/black_confederates.html) Some black people have more sense than most white people, a few of which I count among my dearest friends.
William N. Grigg of Pro Libertate summed up the attack on the Confederate flag best when he stated, "The Confederate Battle Flag is reviled not because it is indelibly associated with racial bigotry and mass bloodshed, but because it symbolizes a refusal to be part of the sacred American reich." This is precisely why some blacks can and do support it.
9:03 AM - God is Still on the Throne
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8:41 AM - Eugenics in the United States Today
by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News
This is the first part of a two part series exploring the relationship between the controversial eugenics movement of the past and modern genetics. Eugenics was dedicated to cleansing and purifying humanity from "inferior" members with the hope of solving various social problems related to poverty, disability, and illness. To accomplish this, it sought to create a superior race of people and to use forced sterilization and extermination to eliminate future generations of
defective human beings. Darwin's theory of evolution was used to justify the practice of eugenics. Later, when eugenics fell from favor, modern genetics began to grow up from the ashes of the former movement.
When Adolf Hitler applied Darwin's theory of evolution and the principles of eugenics to the goals of the German state, the result was the murder of eleven million men, women and children. These lives were sacrificed in the name of eugenics. Eugenicists were seeking to improve the conditions of life for humanity by creating a "superior" race of people.
The eugenics movement had a very dark side, which led to social control, loss of reproductive freedom, and the loss of life. Should we be concerned that modern genetic science might have a dark side as well? Will the fruit of genetic research be misused by ill-intentioned people to gain control over others as happened with eugenics in the past? Has modern genetics completely severed itself from its roots? Or, might it become the tool that will be used to try to create a master class of genetically superior human beings in America?
What are the deceptions and dangers of the modern genetics movement? Does true health and true happiness lie in the human genome? Are we really bound to the set of genes that we received from our parents, or can we overcome what we were given? What are the factors that activate or deactivate certain genes, and how can we control the expression of our genetic make-up to promote our health and the health of our children? What are the motivations of certain groups who want us to believe that genes control every aspect of our lives – that we have no other options than to suffer while genetic scientists look for genetic cures for all that ails us? Are we really more than our genes or is our genetic code all there is?
These questions and many more will be examined in these articles. Let's begin by learning about the development of eugenics.
8:39 AM - This Group of Americans Just Banned Sodomite Marriage Forever
Tribal laws of the two largest Native American tribes in the United States prohibit gay marriage, as do the laws of nine other smaller tribes.
The Navajo and Cherokee Nations, the first and second largest tribes respectively, together have about 600,000 members. The nine smaller tribes that ban gay marriage have another 350,000 members. These tribes all either define marriage as between a man and a woman or explicitly prohibit same-sex marriage, according to the Associated Press (AP).
Since 2011, six of the eleven tribes revisited and upheld their preexisting legal definitions of marriage as between a man and a woman, AP researchers found.
It will not matter what the Supreme Court decides on "same-sex" marriage. These tribes have their own sovereignty as CNS News reveals.
8:34 AM - 12+ Landmarks Illuminated in Sodomite Celebration
Posted on June 29, 2015
After sunset on Decision Day, the White House is awash in rainbow light tonight, and the rainbow revolution has spread to the other coast and overseas. And, cue the camera phones! Here's a roundup of what Twitter users have so far found being illuminated in rainbow spirit after today's marriage ruling. (Update: Other Twitter users point out that some of these photos being shared in celebration are from previous times when the landmarks were lit up.)
How long do you suppose it takes to set up this light show? Look at the dates and time stamps on the Twitter feeds. All of these places were ready with the rainbow lights at approximately the same time? Did they all know the decision beforehand?
6:10 PM - Over 500 Homosexual Supporters Burned Alive in Taiwan as Biblical Scale Firestorm Ignites
(NaturalNews) A gay pride youth party in Taiwan went horribly wrong last night as a special effect consisting of huge clouds of rainbow-colored glitter particles was launched into the air over the partygoers. To the shock and horror of everyone, the metallic glitter ignited, raining down a firestorm of death upon hundreds of attendees who were burned alive.
Although the lying leftist media is desperately trying to state this event had nothing to do with "gay pride," as the following photos show, it was sponsored by an openly gay organization featuring a sperm logo and gay men associated with an international gay modeling organization. I'm not blaming gays for this horrible tragedy, but let's not be ridiculous and try to claim this gay pride rainbow party wasn't a gay pride rainbow party. It clearly was. You'd have to be wildly delusional not to instantly recognize this. (Natural News is not an anti-gay publisher. We've long argued for universal freedom to love and live with whomever you want. We are a "pro choice on almost everything" publisher with a social libertarian view, arguing that marriage shouldn't be "licensed" by the government in the first place.)
6:31 PM - Bible Verses for Today
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity...They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
"Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
5:57 PM - There is No Dignity in Filth
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
June 28, 2015
WARNING: Harsh Truth
I thought about a different title for this commentary because many websites will not post it because it has the "S" word in the title, but sodomy is a Biblical word. I am not ashamed to call it what the Bible calls it.
The skin is off of the onion. We now know what it is that the homosexuals were after: they wanted "dignity." Anthony Kennedy used the term "dignity" throughout his entire written decision on sodomy-based marriage. I went to the dictionary because until recently, words had
DIGNITY—" a way of appearing or behaving that suggests seriousness and self-control; the quality of being worthy of honor or respect."
There is no dignity in sodomy! No matter what five degenerates in black robes might say, there is NO dignity in sodomy. Dignity cannot be bestowed by a court. No judge can make male-on-male sodomy "worthy of honor and respect." Honor and respect come from within. No man can ever feel dignified as another man violates his anus. It is the ultimate desecration of manhood.
There are several men in my life that I genuinely love and admire. My buddy Norm is my best friend. I love Norm, but I have no desire to have sex with him. I express my love for Norm in many ways, but none of them involve "sex." Sex is not love and love is not sex. I love my dog…you get the picture?

5:52 PM - Exiles in Our Own Country
Orthodox Christians Must Now Learn To Live as Exiles in Our Own Country
Indeed, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito explicitly warned religious traditionalists that this decision leaves them vulnerable. Alito warns that Obergefell "will be used to vilify Americans who are unwilling to assent to the new orthodoxy," and will be used to oppress the faithful "by those who are determined to stamp out every vestige of dissent."
The warning to conservatives from the four dissenters could hardly be clearer or stronger. So where does that leave us?
For one, we have to accept that we really are living in a culturally post-Christian nation. The fundamental norms Christians have long been able to depend on no longer exist. To be frank, the court majority may impose on the rest of the nation a view widely shared by elites, but it is also a view shared by a majority of Americans. There will be no widespread popular resistance to Obergefell. This is the new normal.
For another, LGBT activists and their fellow travelers really will be coming after social conservatives. The Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race. The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status from dissenting religious institutions. The more immediate goal will be the shunning and persecution of dissenters within civil society. After today, all religious conservatives are Brendan Eich, the former CEO of Mozilla who was chased out of that company for supporting California's Proposition 8.

6:04 PM - Obama Openly Mocks God After Praising Sodomy
CHARLESTON, S.C. — Hours after delivering a statement praising the U.S. Supreme Court for declaring that all states must legalize "gay marriage," Barack Obama traveled to South Carolina where he spoke about God's grace during the funeral for a nationally-recognized slain pastor and spontaneously led the room in singing "Amazing Grace."
Obama presented his speech from the White House Rose Garden Friday morning following the release of the divided 5-4 ruling, touting the achievements that he has made surrounding his longstanding homosexual advocacy.
"My administration has been guided by [equality]. It's why we stopped defending the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and why we were pleased when the court finally struck down the central provision of that discriminatory law. It's why we ended, 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'" he said.
Obama also praised same-sex activists, stating that they have "slowly made an entire country realize that love is love."
"There is so much more work to be done to extend the full promise of America to every American. But today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we've made our union a little more perfect," he stated.
