THE RICH AND THE POOR!
AMERICA AND GOD!
By: S.R. Shearer
February 2, 2004
At the very center of America's New World Order System is the "UNHOLY
TRINITY" of (1) the World Bank, (2) the World Trade Organization
(WTO - i.e., formerly the GATT system) and (3) the International Monetary
Fund (IMF) - all AMERICAN-controlled institutions despite
their internationalist-appearing facades. Each one of these institutions
was created SPECIFICALLY as part of America's post World
War II strategy to dominate the world. The strategy, known as the "Grand
Area Concept," speaks EXPLICITLY about the need to
use American economic, political and - most of all - MILITARY
power to "arrange world affairs" in such a way that the other
nations of the world would be reduced to the status of U.S. client states.
[Please see Noam Chomsky (MIT), On Power and Ideology, Lecture
One; also Edward S. Herman "Liberals in Search of a Foreign Policy"
in Z Magazine, December, 2003.]
THE VERY HEART OF THIS UNHOLY TRINITY IS THE WTO. The WTO is the
principle means by which the rich oppress the poor in today's New World
Order, and by which they "stamp the residue of them (i.e., the
poor) with their feet." (cf., Daniel 7:7) [Please see
our article, "Inside the American New World Order System"
for a detailed discussion on how this "unholy trinity" functions,
especially as that functioning relates to the PROTECTION RACKET
run by the U.S. military.]
Amory Starr, a well-known anti-globalist activist and scholar writes:
"The World Trade Organization is the cat's meow for [American]
corporations [and their LACKEY European and Japanese
counterparts] seeking to scoop up the land, labor, natural resources,
and markets of [poor] third world nations ... For [poor] people ...
the WTO endangers EVERY aspect of their lives and their
OPPOSITION TO THE WTO BY THE POOR
Naturally enough, opposition to the WTO by the world's poor - who are
never quite as "dumb" as the elites imagine them to be - has
been growing exponentially over the last decade, and so much so that
the organization is now facing what Starr calls a "burgeoning crisis
of legitimacy." For example, its 1999 third biannual Ministerial
foundered on MASSIVE street protests in Seattle. [Please
see our article, "The WTO and the Masses."]
years later, the ministers - dazed and utterly taken aback by what had
happened in Seattle - retreated from public view and held their fourth
biannual Ministerial under the protective guns of the American military
in the tiny U.S.-dominated oil sheikdom of Qatar where civil protest
is illegal. But giving the appearance that they are cowering from the
"mob" like a bunch of milksops and pantywaists is a dangerous
thing for the elites to do; it conveys a sense of weakness which - if
the "mob" catches the scent of it - could spell disaster for
them. They've been there before when the so-called "rabble"
sensed weakness from them: in Paris in 1789 (i.e., the French Revolution)
and at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg in 1917 (i.e., the Russian
Revolution). The elites don't want a repeat of those twin nightmares.
They don't want to go the way of King Louis XVI and Czar Nicholas II
- that's for sure!
Clearly, then, the elites had to reemerge from the shadows if they
had any hope of maintaining their hold on "legitimacy." They
chose Mexico as the place where they would reappear, as Starr puts it,
into "the sunshine of public discourse;" but not just anywhere
in Mexico - i.e., any place where they thought there might be a likelihood
that the poor could "get at them" (like Guadalajara or Mexico
City) - but Cancun; specifically, in the Las Vegas-esque hotel
zone of that fun-city for rich American tourists.
Isolated as Cancun is out on the Yucatan Peninsula, the elites thought
they would be relatively safe from the fury of the poor. Still, just
in case, they insulated the conference area with three concentric 6-foot
high fences and brought in riot police from all over Mexico to keep
the poor at bay in the event a few of them managed somehow or other
to find their way across the forbidding, snake-infested Yucatan Peninsula
THE ELITES UNDERESTIMATE THE
RESOURCEFULNESS OF THE POOR
But the elites had underestimated the resourcefulness and determination
of the poor - and their frenzied DESPERATION to
be heard - and as the time of the Ministerial drew near, thousands
and thousands and thousands of poor people from all over the world
began gathering at a huge improvised campsite 6 miles down the
road from where the WTO meeting was to be held. And right there
- under the very noses of the self-important, conceited "experts"
at the WTO meeting - the so-called "ignorant," "uneducated,"
"brown-skinned" peasants and campesinos began
holding educational meetings and conferences ranging from biotechnology
to water privatization (subjects that the poor are not supposed
to know anything about); they also began to teach each other how
to make cardboard armor, bracing for what they expected to be
a particularly violent police response - after all, they had not
been invited to this party. It was by "invitation only."
They were "party-crashers."
The largest of the poor people's groups present was Via Campesina,
the international farmers' organization that represents 100 MILLION
FARMERS in 70 countries, which set up a headquarters complete
with an eco-village and meeting space for thousands of Mexican campesinos.
Smaller delegations of farmer associations came from all over the world,
with the largest external delegation coming from Korea.
The poor staged two major protests and a number of smaller actions,
but were unable to make themselves heard because they were confined
to a "protest zone" similar to the ones being used today in
the United States by the Bush administration (please see our article,
"The Power of Self-Sacrifice: Taking Up Your Cross and Following
Him" for a discussion on how these "protest zones" work).
on September 10, about eight thousand campesinos exited the "protest
zone" and marched to the first fence that the elites had erected
around themselves in Cancun. Student delegations from Mexico City accompanied
the marchers. The fence was successfully breached, and the marchers
continued on to the second fence.
Arriving at that fence, Lee Kyang, a desperately poor 56 year old farmer
from Korea appeared before the crowd and read the following statement:
"I have mostly failed, as many other farm leaders elsewhere
have failed ... [We] Korean farmers realize that our destinies are
no longer in our own hands. We cannot seem to do anything to stop
the waves [of First World greed and avarice that now wash over the
earth] and have destroyed our communities where we have been settled
for hundreds of years ..."
Then turning toward the plush hotels where the WTO ministers were gathered
about a mile away, he said:
"For whom do you negotiate? For (ordinary) people, or for yourselves
(i.e., the rich)?"
THE DESPERATION OF THE POOR
a sign saying "The WTO Kills Farmers" Kyang then climbed atop
the fence and committed suicide with a knife to the heart.
is the desperation of poor peasant farmers around the world. Kyang's
act echoed the thousands of other farmer-suicides that have been taking
place all around the globe as giant First World food and chemical conglomerates
like Cargill, ADL, Bunge, Dow, Monsanto, Lever Brothers, etc. gobble
them up, kick them off their land, and force them into the vast slums
and shantytowns that today surround cities like Buenos Aires, Rio de
Janeiro, Guatemala City, Mexico City, Lagos, etc. where they live like
rats in a garbage dump - and these companies do all this NOT
for the purpose of making food cheaper for ordinary people (as they
cynically advertise in the corporate media), but for controlling food
production in order to enrich themselves.
The intersection where Kyang committed suicide was immediately renamed
"Plaza Lee" and all over the city graffiti was placed reading
"Lee Vive" and "Todos somos Kyang"
("We are all Kyang") - a saying popularized by the Zapatistas
in their on-going struggle against the Mexican government in the remote
southern province of Chiapas. [Please see our article, "Chiapas:
The Effect of the New World Order on the Poor."]
There then followed several days of tumultuous protests with thousands
and thousands of poor campesinos wearing Kyang armbands getting
their heads bashed in by the police who were guarding the WTO Ministerial.
NO PLACE FOR THE POOR
AT THE TABLE OF THE RICH
Brothers and sisters in Christ - you may never have heard about any
of this, largely because the corporate media in the United States
does not report on it. You also may never have heard of the many
other similar demonstrations - demonstrations by the poor and
dispossessed that are taking place all over the globe directed
against the institutional machinery of the American New World
Order System. But, believe me when I tell you that it's happening,
and that the poor have plenty of reason to protest! Why? - BECAUSE
THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THEM IN THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM,
fulfilling the grim lyric on the lips of the ghostly phantasm
astride the Black Horse of the Apocalypse:
"A measure of wheat for a penny [literally - denarius,
a Greek coin which represented a WHOLE DAYS wage in
the ancient world], and three measures of barley for a penny; and
see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:6)
[The meaning of this is that the condition of the poor at the "end
of the age" will be reduced to such that a poor man will have
to labor a whole day simply to buy a loaf of bread or three measures
of barley. But the second part of the saying ["... and see
thou hurt not the oil and the wine ..."] means that the poverty
of these days will not extend to those SYCHOPHANTS and
"TOADIES" who ally themselves with the American
New World Order System and assist it in plundering the world - only
the rich in the ancient world could afford oil and wine!]
WHERE DO YOU STAND IN ALL THIS?
Are you a SYCHOPHANT to the American New World Order
System? Are you a "TOADY" to it? Are you assisting
it in anyway? - no matter how peripherally? Are you? Are you connected
to it? - no matter how tangentially? Are you? These are important questions!
Because if you are, you are partly to blame for what happened to Lee
Kyang! - and not just Kyang, but thousands of other peasant farmers
just like him who every year commit suicide (mainly by drinking pesticides)
because they see no hope in their battle for survival against the EVIL
machinations of this wicked, wicked system and prefer death to being
consigned as human trash to the slums and shantytowns that today surround
the citadels of the rich.
Brothers and sisters, listen! - SIMPLY SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THE
AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM WITHOUT AT THE SAME TIME DISENGAGING
YOURSELF FROM IT IS AN EXERCISE IN SELF-DECEPTION. It will not help
you with God on THAT DAY, not even one whit! Indeed, all
you may be doing is gathering up enough rope with which to hang yourself
insofar as God is concerned.
And more than that, Is your church connected in any way to Christian
leaders who support the American New World Order System? - empty-headed
nincompoops and morons like Paul Crouch, Jack Hayford, Charles Stanley,
D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye, the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz,
C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth
Hagin, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, David
Yonggi Cho, Robert Stearns, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron, Che Ahn, Frank
Hammond, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie Byerly, Dutch
Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso,
Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell, Ted Haggart, Paul
Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher, Jim Laffoon, Barbara
Wentroble, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. Is your church connected
to any of these people? Don't lie here! Don't fudge the truth! Answer
the question honestly. Does your church book store sell their material?
Do they speak at your church? Come on now, be honest!
If your church is connected to any of these people - and you continue
to support it (i.e., your church) by your presence and contributions,
no matter what the reason, no matter how justified you think you are
in doing so, and no matter how much you think you, your wife, and your
children benefit from it - you too are responsible for what happened
to Kyang! You may not "feel" it, but just as surely as that
"paper-pusher" (clerk) at the I.G. Farben Company in Frankfurt
was as guilty of mass murder as the SS "Death's Head" guards
at the company's "production facilities" (slave-labor factories)
at Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, etc. were, so you too are guilty.
It doesn't matter whether or not you're a good person, a faithful husband
or wife, a loving father or mother; a devout Christian. It doesn't matter
if you secretly disapprove of what the American New World Order System
is up to in Peru, Colombia, Iraq, Guatemala, the Congo, etc., or whether
or not you pray night and day on bended knees for the bodies and souls
of those who are being ground into dust as a result of the machinations
of this evil system. Kyang's blood will still stain your hands and pollute
your soul on THAT DAY, and your personal holiness
and your personal goodness are not going to count for much in
light of those stains - OR do you really think that God
will excuse your connection with the American New World Order System
because of your much praying and your personal holiness? As I said in
an earlier article, if you think so, YOU'RE NUTS! Your
prayers and your personal life have to have a PUBLIC outcome;
there has to be some connection between your prayers and the way you
PUBLICLY conduct your life.
GET OUT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
and sisters, YOU MUST DISCONNECT YOURSELF FROM AMERICA,
both physically and spiritually. There is no other way! It's not without
reason that the Bible says:
"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her
sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." (Rev. 18:4)
No such warning was ever given to Christians living in the old Soviet
Union, or in China, or in any of the nations of the Islamic world; only
to Christians in the United States (i.e., "Babylon the Great").
Now that's heavy! That's very heavy!" Think about that!
[Please see our articles, "In Search of Babylon: What Do the Scriptures
Say," "The Revolution in Military Affairs," and "America
as I indicated previously - please, please don't make the asinine and
sophomoric mistake that some do who say that eventually all the world
will become part of the American New World Order System; and, therefore,
to leave the United States will - in the long run - accomplish little
or nothing for you. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE! THAT'S A CONVENIENT
BUT VERY WICKED CONTRIVANCE AND SUBTERFUGE. As we said in
our last article, "The Weather Man Cometh" -
"It's true, all the world will eventually be absorbed by the
American New World Order System, just as all of Europe was eventually
conquered and absorbed by Nazi Germany; but there was still a great
difference to be remarked upon insofar as Germany's conquered territories
were concerned (i.e., France, Denmark, Poland, the Ukraine, Norway,
Holland, Belgium, etc.)
and Germany herself; and there was a GREAT DISTINCTION
to be remarked upon insofar as the conduct of these different populations
were concerned vis a vis the people of Germany. Germany's population
actually PARTICIPATED in Germany's crimes; the population
of Germany's "slave states" SUFFERED as a
result of these crimes. There is a big difference here; it is, to
put it in the vernacular, the difference between the "screwer"
and the "screwee;" the difference between
the one who is being raped, and the one who is doing the raping; the
difference between the perpetrator and the victim; the difference
between MASTER and SLAVE - SO ALSO
INSOFAR AS AMERICA IS CONCERNED vis a vis HER CLIENT-STATES,
i.e., HER SLAVE STATES.
IS THIS TOO HEAVY FOR YOU?
say that all this is too heavy! - too heavy for you! BUT THE
"END OF THE AGE" IS A VERY HEAVY AFFAIR? - or did you
think it was just a game? Something you could play at when you had the
time to do so?
If you think so, you're wrong, and no matter how hard you try to avoid
it, you will still have to answer the question: WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU
ON? - THE POOR'S SIDE OR AMERICA'S SIDE? And before you answer,
you need to understand that - contrary to what you may have heard from
your pastor - it's the poor with whom God identifies Himself. Concerning
the rich, the New Testament says:
"Go to now, ye rich men, WEEP AND HOWL FOR YOUR MISERIES
THAT SHALL COME UPON YOU.
"Your riches are CORRUPTED, and your garments are MOTHEATEN.
"Your gold and silver is CANKERED; and the rust of
them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as
it were fire. YE HAVE HEAPED TREASURE TOGETHER FOR THE LAST
"Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your
fields, which is of you KEPT BACK BY FRAUD, crieth:
and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears
of the Lord of sabaoth (people you have worked to death in your
sweatshops in Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Haiti, Mexico,
Panama, China, etc.).
"Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton;
ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
"Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist
you. (James 5:1-6)
But Jesus said concerning the poor:
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because HE HATH ANOINTED
ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR (To whom? - the poor, not
the rich); he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance
to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, TO SET
AT LIBERTY THEM THAT ARE BRUISED ..." (Luke 4:18)
And the Bible goes on to say:
His mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
He hath showed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud
in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seats and exalted them of
He hath filled the hungry with good things, AND THE RICH HE
HATH SENT EMPTY AWAY. (Luke 1:50-53)
So, now - go ahead - answer the question, Whose side are you on? -
the poor's side, or America's? If you choose America, then I somberly
and earnestly warn you, you are NOT on God's side! - and
someday you will "pay the piper" for your stupidity. I URGE
you, while you still have the chance, INVEST YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST;
a thousand years from now, you will be glad you did so, and you will
thank me THEN for being harsh and severe NOW.
God bless you all!
