As we approach the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, once again we hear emboldened calls to “never forget.” But what exactly are we being asked to remember? If your answer is the brave firefighters, police and individuals who acted heroically that fateful day, then I say fair enough. The lessons of 9/11 have been long forgotten however, mostly because we have never understood the realities of 9/11 to begin with. We have forgotten about the ineptitude of our intelligence agencies. We have forgotten about all the incongruencies in The 9/11 Commission Report. Indeed, we have forgotten the sense of national unity and patriotism that followed 9/11. But most significantly, we have forgotten our own values of liberty and justice. We have forgotten who we are as Americans. We have forgotten that we are one nation, under God. This makes us vulnerable to another attack.
Following the astonishing attacks of 9/11, the world stood with America. Multitudes in the international community wept for knowing what the attacks, focused squarely on our symbols of financial and military might, represented. The world prayed for America, only to watch her implode. Now, the world has forgotten America because our response to the attacks has accomplished nothing but to further the spread of terrorism and erode the foundations of democracy worldwide.
As I recalled in my very first post One American (An Introduction), after the attacks I expected our jets to be in the air within hours, mounting a response. That didn’t happen. I figured surely, with the scope of our intelligence gathering worldwide, we would instantly know who was responsible. How naive I was, but even then I sensed something was off. What I came to understand through several years of research and observation, is that a long-standing globalist plan to destabilize the Middle East was secretly deploying; 9/11 was the needed catalyst. Through Neo-con accomplices in the Bush Administration and especially the Pentagon’s Office Of Special Planning, created in 2002, a dubious justification for the invasion of Iraq and the removal of Saddam Hussein was pieced together. The American media, perhaps out of a sense of loyalty to the Administration or perhaps through coercion, was complicit in conveying the “evidence” to the American people. In reality, Saddam Hussein had no connection to the 9/11 attacks. An astute and independent media would have investigated these claims. Instead, the media acquiesced to the will of the government, and today serves merely as a propaganda tool to shape public opinion.
Just tune in to FOX News or CNN and you will discover that Muslim extremists are no longer the primary threat to national security, rather, it is the American citizen that poses the greatest danger, especially if they are a veteran, a gun owner, a Christian or just someone who dares invoke the Bill of Rights or Declaration of Independence. It took just over a decade; the seeds of the so-called “Arab Spring” were planted and al-Qaeda metastasized into the Islamic State as the new chaos control.
Keep in mind, in 2003, on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, in front of a banner declaring “Mission Accomplished,” then President George W. Bush declared, “The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on September the 11th, 2001 and still goes on.” Similarly, the Obama Administration marked the end to U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan in December of last year, but 13,500 troops remain in “support roles” which still include airstrikes, raids and engaging Taliban fighters. American soldiers are also tasked with protecting Afghanistan’s ever-more-productive opium fields from the Taliban, who have sought to destroy the crop because of Islamic prohibitions on drug use. Operation Enduring Freedom was replaced with Operation Resolute Support, but what has really changed?
“Never forget!” cannot possibly be a patriotic battle cry, because the “war on terror” which came as an outgrowth of the attacks is a fraud; what we have endured for the last fourteen years is a war on freedom. We no longer follow our own Constitution. We no longer honor the principles on which our nation was founded. The phrase “never forget” is used to rejuvenate the fear state that holds our people captive. And every year it is repeated, and paired with images of the Twin Towers burning and collapsing. The goal is nothing more than to create an atmosphere of paranoia where people willingly accept liberty-crushing legislation like the Patriot Act and NDAA. Regrettably, we cannot reminisce about 9/11 with any honor and recall that the terrorists acted with cowardice and hit us good, but we stood firm and recovered in the face of evil. Truth be told, we have given ourselves over to cowardice, lawlessness and evil. We made excuses. Are we any safer now? No. We are perilously close to destruction. We have accepted more government bureaucracy, by creating the Department of Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration and expanding the powers of the NSA and IRS to criminalize American citizens.
9/11 was a revelation of the perversion that America had become. It exposed the hypocrisy of the greatest nation on Earth. I suppose you could say we should “never forget” the day that marked the onset of America’s judgement. I’m not blaming America for the attacks as others have done. 9/11 was a wake up call that went unheeded, a lost opportunity to root out the corruption and evil that have mutated our representative republic. Instead of a real investigation, we were given The 9/11 Commission, who’s official report on the attacks served not to uncover the truth, but merely to create a framework in which we would execute the phony “war on terror.” The 9/11 Commission Report is not an investigation, but a narrative- a blueprint for expanding the faculties of a government poised for complete tyranny. Curiously, the report never mentioned the collapse of the 7 World Trade Center building and only recently were twenty-eight pages of the report declassified, revealing that Saudi Arabia (our supposed ally) funded and coordinated the operation. And here we are, fourteen years later. It took all of these years to complete the One World Trade Center (with the observatory at the tower’s top finally opening just this Spring), not as a monument to American tenacity or faith, but instead, as a repugnant erection to our globalist deities. By comparison, it took just over a year to complete the Empire State Building in 1931- during the Great Depression.
If only we were not as vain and prideful. While the attacks may have been carried out by Islamic terrorists (if you care to believe the official story) it served as a warning from God. I’m no Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson mind you, but there are numerous accounts in the Bible where God lifted his hand of protection, allowing a nation’s enemies to overwhelm them. Most notably is the destruction of the Northern Kingdom of Israel by Assyria in 722 B.C:
And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the Lord their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.
And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree:
And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the Lord carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the Lord to anger:
For they served idols, whereof the Lord had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing…
… And the Lord rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.
[2 Kings 17:9-20]
God has a problem with towers it seems. In other translations of this Bible passage, it is revealed that the Israelites sinned against God by setting up Asherah poles (translated groves in the King James Version), which were sacred trees (think: totem pole) to honor the pagan goddess of fertility, Asherah. I shouldn’t have to mention the Tower of Babel in the Book of Genesis; countless comparisons have already been made between that ancient tower and the Twin Towers, so I wont bother.
The point is, God allowed the destruction of Israel- his chosen people- because of their blatant disregard for His commandments and their spirit of rebelliousness. Part of that process of destruction involved Israel’s borders being overrun with invaders. Now, in discussing our judgement, I’m not suggesting that illegal immigrants are warring for America, but they are being used by the enemy as an instrument of our destruction. Our country was built by immigrants, who once endured a rigorous process to enter America. But now, with our deranged immigration policy, which screens for nothing yet offers everything in the form of government assistance, America may very well be taken down by immigrants. Our enemy uses our sense of fairness, charity and justice to hamstring us. While most illegal immigrants are hard working people seeking a better life in America, many are hardcore criminals seeking to escape jurisdiction in their countries of origin, which not only include countries in Latin America, but Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Those with no identification are recklessly given new identities. If we do not have a common sense immigration policy in place that at least screens for felons and those with links to terrorism, how do we have any clue who is entering our country and what their intentions are? What infectious diseases will see a resurgence as a result of unchecked immigration? We are already witnessing strange outbreaks of tuberculosis, dengue fever and legionaries disease. How does the government justify its ongoing, illegal surveillance of American citizens, enhanced pat-downs, body scanners, roadside checkpoints, etc. while allowing our borders to be wide open? These things would be unfathomable to our founding fathers. The only possible explanation? We are no longer living under the Constitutional authority of the United States of America.
Should we be surprised? These policies come from the same resident of the White House who releases known terrorists and drug lords from prison to appease rival criminal elites. These policies originate from a person who sees fit to arm and train radical Islamic militants against Syrian President Assad, who, despite objectionable policies, commands his army to protect Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities in his country against the advance of ISIS, backed by the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Turkey. We should be outraged. Russia is lending support to Assad now, and France is preparing for airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria. How is it that the rest of the civilized world recognizes that ISIS is the enemy? Could it be because we had more than a little bit to do with their expansion? Well, according to the Pentagon, that’s precisely the case. Kinda hard to win a war on terror when you’re fighting on both sides, eh?
Many European nations already have a major dilemma on their hands with Muslim immigrants who have no desire to assimilate into European society. This is now compounded by a raging refugee problem, as people flee war ravaged stretches the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia. Their plight is a direct result of our reprehensible foreign policy, orchestrated at the top by those who’s goal is to topple the strongholds of Western, Judeo-Christian civilization. What happens when refugees start fleeing Western Europe as migrants wreak havoc on their culture? On one level, you might conclude that our enemy are Islamic militants, but again, they are merely another weapon in the arsenal of globalist authoritarians, who will use any means to conquer America and the rest of the world. All conflict in the world is a reflection of the greater war occurring in the spiritual realm; it is Satan who is our true enemy, and that battle is raging in the soul of humankind. We have fallen under the spell of the Great Deceiver.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
So, what is our current trajectory? Persecution and violence against Christians is rapidly becoming an international crisis. This crisis has now spread to the U.S. on the heels of the Supreme Court’s illegitimate decree that the definition of marriage is now to include the bondage of homosexual partners. Any objection to this perversion means you can lose your job, your business, your home, your children and perhaps soon, your life. Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk, was jailed for six days without bail for refusing to issue a marriage license to a gay couple. Put her Christian faith aside for a moment and consider, Kim Davis broke no law. Supreme Court opinions do not equate with legislation; under Kentucky law, marriage is exclusively recognized as between a man and a woman. Ordinarily, you might expect a person to lose their job for refusing to perform the duties of their job, if it were not for our society’s disdain for God’s redeeming Word. “The idea of natural law superceding this court’s authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed,” said Judge David L. Bunning before tossing Davis in jail. Judge Bunning apparently believes he is above the law- even God’s law. Evangelist Kent Hovind, founder of Creation Science Ministries and Dinosaur Adventureland in Pensacola, Florida was recently released from prison following a ten-year sentence for charges related to tax evasion and “structuring,” which is breaking up a large sum of money into smaller deposits, to avoid scrutiny. Whether you agree with Hovind’s literal view of Creation or not, it is clear he was targeted for his faith. Under Lois Learner, the IRS illegally singled out for extra scrutiny, Christian, Libertarian and Tea Party organizations applying for non-profit status, for which nobody was punished. These assaults on religious liberty will increase in intensity and frequency unless true Christians stand up and speak out.
We have turned to idols like Kali, who’s frightful image was projected on the face of the Empire State Building in New York City on August 1st, as part of an exhibition focusing on endangered species. The idea behind the ominous display? According to artist Andrew “Android” Jones, Mother Earth needs a fierce avatar to fight pollution and extinction, reports the Times of India. Kali, Hindu goddess of time, change and destruction, is often portrayed as a multi-armed, blood-thirsty cannibal, standing upon the body of her consort, Shiva, and wearing a necklace of severed heads and a belt made from human limbs. Interesting choice of defenders, but Kali doesn’t care about endangered species, she wants to devour you. Clearly, the artist’s intention was not to actually summon Kali, but the event, to me, was a clear foreshadowing of the terror that’s about to be unleashed in our country. The image of Kali concluded a series of images which featured various endangered species, one of which was the bald eagle. It is a grave mistake to (literally or figuratively) call upon demons and false gods to aid in any human endeavor, even charitable ones. The one sin that always results in destruction is the worship of false idols.
Have we forgotten the fate of ancient Babylon? Prophetic chatter regarding the judgement of America is off the charts for September 2015. From blood moons to eclipses to Shemitahs, asteroids and rouge planets, everyone is abuzz about when the collapse will occur and by what means it will be brought about. Jade Helm 15 concludes this month, but the laying of the grid continues. Pope Francis is set to visit the United States this month and will address Congress and the United Nations, no doubt to rubber stamp the globalist takeover of America by authority of the Vatican. This convergence of events (and there are more) has everyone holding their breath and, hopefully, praying. We have already seen the stock market tumble, what lies in wait for us next? We are in the midst of another Cold War, because of our policies in the Ukraine, Syria and beyond. An all out war is looming, but this time we don’t have the moral high ground. It is my belief that judgement comes in waves, like the plagues the Lord sent against the Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. Whether a major event will occur in September nobody knows for certain, but there is little denying that we are entering into very turbulent times. A great, black cloud of deception has descended over the land, people are oblivious to their unfolding fate; the apathetic haze of ignorance and impotence is preferred to vigilance and strength. In this strange, scorched land, whistleblowers are traitors and prophets are lunatics. Is this the beginning of the Great Tribulation? Are we in the end times or is this just the end of America as we know it? Or will God grant us a little more time? Hold on tight and stand firm in your faith, you are going to need it.
