There is a deep, very dark secret the government doesn't want anyone to know about - a secret so hideous and so repulsive that if it ever became "common knowledge," or - more to the point - if it were ever accepted as true by the American people, the elites would be swept away in a paroxysm of rage that would make the Terror of the French Revolution look tame in comparison: And that is, the so-called "DRUG REVOLUTION" in the United States which has done so much to ravage the poor in this country - especially the black community - is the invention of the elites.
Trouble is, most white Americans will never admit to this fact no matter how much proof is offered them regarding this matter - and they point to such people as Colin Powel, Condelezza Rice, Barack Obama, etc. who have very obviously joined the elites in the "magic circle" as "window dressing" designed to prove the LIE. The lie about what? - that the great mass of the black community remains permanently confined to the nation's ghettos, caught in a vicious cycle of drug addiction and prison with no way out.
It's a lie that most white Christians have embraced with gusto, so that -
And if some brave soul speaks out with regard to the truth of the matter, he runs the very grave risk of ending up like Gary Webb - with a CIA bullet in his head, OR, at the very least, relegated to the radical fringe with Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, or worse, with the Commies and radical socialists who - despite America's win insofar as the Cold War is concerned - are still hunted down like rabid dogs by the elites.
And what was the elite's purpose in pushing the so-called "Drug Revolution" on the black community? TO PACIFY THE BLACK COMMUNITY BY INTRODUCING CRACK-COCAINE INTO IT SO AS TO RENDER IT INCAPABLE OF EVER AGAIN MAKING WAR AGAINST ELITE POWER THE WAY IT HAD DONE IN THE 1960s AND EARLY TO MID-1970s. This tactic is now being turned against what the elites call "POOR WHITE TRASH" - i.e., those white workers who have seen their jobs shipped overseas to slave-labor factories so that the elites can pocket the difference in wages. And in assessing the HORROR of all this, one must bear in mind that Crack-cocaine is such a powerful and addictive drug that it is virtually impossible for people - once addicted - to ever get free from it, which is what makes it such a valuable tool in the elite's arsenal of TERROR.
The closest the government has ever come to admitting that it was DIRECTLY involved in this heinous CRIME is the admission it made - largely as the result of the heroic work of Gary Webb - that it had imported cocaine into the United States in order to fund its covert war against the Contras in the 1980s. This admission of guilt was RIPPED out of the government as the result of a report that appeared in the San Jose Mercury News that implicated the CIA in the trafficking of crack-cocaine to the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles in the 1980s - five years after the end of the Vietnam War, a war that was, as we have already indicated, inextricably bound up with the "Black Revolution" of that era. Webb reported:
TRAFFICKING CRACK-COCAINE TO THE POOR
Now think about the implications of all this for a minute. Five years after the end of the Vietnam War and the "Black Revolution" of that era, the CIA involved itself in a gigantic effort to distribute crack-cocaine in the poor black neighborhoods of Los Angeles. It was later discovered that L.A. was only the tip of the iceberg: the CIA was also "trafficked" crack-cocaine into poor black neighborhoods all over the country - in Detroit, San Francisco, New York, Houston, etc. And one must bear in mind, these were neighborhoods where THE DRUG HAD NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE.
The CIA's "trafficking" in this drug accomplished a number of very important things insofar as the elites were concerned:
WASHING THE CIA's DIRTY LAUNDRY
Of course, it goes without saying that the elites and their enforcement arm, the CIA, were not eager to have their participation in these CRIMINAL acts made public. But that's just what almost happened when in the mid 1990s, former FDN leader and drug dealer Oscar Danilo Blandon Reyes was called to testify in a cocaine-trafficking trial in San Diego.
Shortly before Blandon - who had been the drug ring's Southern California distributor - took the stand in San Diego as a witness for the U.S. Department of Justice, FEDERAL PROSECUTORS OBTAINED A COURT ORDER PREVENTING DEFENSE LAWYERS FROM DELVING INTO HIS (BLANDON'S) TIES WITH THE CIA."
The court order read in part:
This is the way the elites handle things, by fiat; after all, in all matters essential to them they own the courts.
THE ELITES: BLAMING BLACKS FOR THE DRUG EPIDEMIC
But what a HORRIBLE thing they have wrought - and having done so, they magnify the nature of their offense by turning around and blaming the very victims OF the crime FOR the crime. They send armies of cops into poor neighborhoods throughout the country to brutalize the people. They crowd the prisons with a whole generation of youth.
But Gary Webb's articles in the San Jose Mercury News threatened to expose their mendacity. And so the elites swung into action by prodding their allies in the mainline press to come to the aid of the agency's shattered reputation. The Washington Post, the New York Times, CBS, NBC and ABC sprang to the defense of the CIA, claiming falsely that there was no proof that CIA agents were involved, and attacking the San Jose Mercury News as nothing more than a naïve West Coast "rag sheet." Under this relentless attack, the chief editor of the San Jose Mercury caved in, and backed away from the gist of Webb's report, saying lamely that -
The paper dismissed Webb, who lift the Bay Area and slunk back to Sacramento in disgrace, where a CIA assassin was waiting for him.
THE FAR LEFT PICKS UP WHERE THE SAN JOSE
When the CIA offered this revolting deal to the drug smugglers, it would be very naïve to believe that they were not FULLY cognizant of what all this would do to America's underclass in poor neighborhoods throughout the country, and that it did not constitute part of "The Plan."
One must also bear in mind that up to this point, drug usage on a large scale had never really reached into America's poor neighborhoods. Drug usage on a large scale in the U.S. began with hallucinogenics like LSD. The use of hallucinogenics was confined mainly to white college students. Similarly, cocaine usage was of the "Cole Porter variety" and was restricted largely to the upper classes and the "Hollywood set." Finally, heroine use was not that wide spread in the neighborhoods of the poor because the poor could not easily afford it.
Crack-cocaine was the first drug easily affordable by the underclass, and the first drug to be used on a massive basis by the poor. CRACK-COCAINE DESTROYED THE POOR IN THIS COUNTRY; IT IS SO ADDICTIVE - MUCH MORE THAN HEROINE, PURE COCAINE OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR DRUG - THAT THE CHANCES OF ONE WHO IS ONCE 'CAUGHT" BY THE DRUG TO EVER FREE HIMSELF OF IT IS SLIM TO NOTHING.
To think, even for a minute, that the CIA was NOT aware of these facts is naïve at best, and just plain stupid at worst. FROM ALL THIS, IT IS EASY AND VERY NATURAL TO CONCLUDE THAT THE CIA AND THE ELITES WHO CONTROL THE AGENCY HAD OTHER PURPOSES IN MIND BEYOND FUNDING THE CONTRA WARS; NAMELY, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY THROUGH DRUG ADDICTION, THUS RENDERING IT INCAPABLE OF EVER AGAIN REVOLTING AGAINST ELITE POWER THE WAY THEY HAD DONE IN THE PREVIOUS TWO DECADES.
Like the search by holocaust researchers to find written documentation linking Hitler to the actual destruction of the Jewish community in Europe, one may search in vain to ever find a specific order from the fountains of elite power specifying this purpose; but to believe that such a purpose did not lurk in the minds of the elites, and was not verbally discussed by them behind closed doors is ludicrous. It's akin to saying that Hitler didn't really know what was happening at Auschwitz, Treblinka, Sobibor, Dacau, etc., and that the makers of Zyklon-B gas at I.G. Farben didn't really know what the gas was being used for in the death camps.
Casey appointed the high-ranking CIA official Duane Clarridge to be the de facto commander-in-chief of the contra war. In August 1981 before the contra war even started, Clarridge flew down to Honduras, the country just north of Nicaragua, which had been selected as the base area for the CIA's contra war. Clarridge met with Honduran President Policarpo Paz García, military intelligence boss Col. Leonides Torres, and national police chief, Col. Gustavo Alvarez Martínez. These three men were already deeply involved in cocaine traffic. And they were connected to Honduras' main cocaine trafficker, Juan Ramón Matta Ballesteros.
"'We don't know the extent of the Honduran military's involvement in drugs', a State Department official would later say. But our educated guess is that all of the senior officials have knowledge, many are involved...and they are all reaping the profits'.
"Though Matta himself was in prison much of this time, the 1989 report of the Senate's Kerry subcommittee documents that Matta's airline SETCO became the main air carrier for contra supply, 'carrying at least a million rounds of ammunition, food, uniforms and other military supplies' between 1983 and 1985. On the return route, the planes often carried cocaine.
"In 1983, as SETCO supply runs started, Vice President George Bush put the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) operations under the control of the "national security" apparatus. In June 1983, the DEA office in Honduras was shut down, one month after the local DEA agent started investigating SETCO. Also in 1983, planes of Southern Air Transport (SAT--the CIA's newly "privatized" airline) were seen being loaded with cocaine in Barranquilla, Colombia (Washington Post, Jan. 20, 1987). SETCO and SAT were part of a larger air support network directed by "retired Air Force General" Richard Secord, a military logistics expert who is sometimes described as a CIA official.
"Sections of the U.S. ruling class complained that the contras were "ineffective" and were making little progress in overthrowing Nicaragua's Sandinista government. Contra commanders were accused of accumulating wealth instead of fighting. In 1984, Congress passed a law forbidding the U.S. government from directly arming the contras. In response, the CIA moved the day-to-day command of the contra supply away from its Langley offices.
"After 1984, the contra operation was overseen by Donald Gregg, a long-time CIA official who was reassigned to be top aide of Vice President George Bush. And within the Reagan White House, Lt. Col. Oliver North of the National Security Council staff (NSC) directed contra supply--under the guidance of William Casey himself. The CIA had kept the operation firmly in tested CIA hands. And at the top, George Bush was given overall command of three key government policy areas: 'crisis management', 'counterterrorism' and 'narcotics policy'.
"The Enterprise continued to grow. By 1986, the CIA had at least 300 agents operating in Honduras. In 1984, SETCO started receiving funds directly from the U.S. State Department. State Department testimony before congress said that the CIA approved giving funds to Matta's organization. In addition, it was reported that North gave SETCO other money from secret accounts. According to Newsweek, by 1985, Matta's organization was supplying 'perhaps one third of all the cocaine consumed in the United States'.
"When scandal erupted over Enterprise dealings with Iran, Oliver North said, 'Casey told me to clean out the files. I shredded documents and altered others'. (Time, July 27, 1987) Casey died of a brain tumor in the middle of the Iran-contra scandal."
"I never saw any intelligence suggesting General Noriega's involvement in the drug trade. In fact, we always held up Panama as the model in terms of cooperation with the United States in the war on drugs."
Admiral Daniel Murphy, top drug aide
of Vice President George Bush,
"A Costa Rican legislative commission concluded in 1989 that Noriega helped install in that country at least seven pilots who ran guns to the contras and drugs to North America. `'More serious still,' it added, `'is the obvious infiltration of international gangs into Costa Rica that made use of the [contra] organization. These requests for Contra help were initiated by Colonel North to General Noriega. They opened a gate so their henchmen utilized the national territory for trafficking in arms and drugs'. "
"Panama's General Noriega was at the heart of operations funding and supplying contras in Costa Rica. Noriega was first recruited as an agent by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in 1959, while still a teenage military cadet studying in Peru. He went on the CIA's payroll in 1967. The following year, a U.S.-instigated military coup in Panama installed him as head of Panama's military intelligence and secret police. Soon he seized overall power in Panama.
"Later, in 1991 trial testimony, the CIA and U.S. Army admitted paying Noriega $322,336 since 1955. This is a very low estimate. Others report that then-CIA director George Bush started paying Noriega $100,000 a year in 1976. During the '80s, Noriega deposited at least $33 million at the Panama City branch of the BCCI bank. Some of these funds were being laundered for the contras, others were Noriega's payoffs for the operations passing through his territory.
"To earn his pay, Noriega carried out all kinds of dirty activities for his U.S. masters. He supplied pilots, bases and funds to the contra supply operations. Noriega's close confidant Floyd Carlton Caceres negotiated personally with the top Colombian cocaine smugglers Pablo Escobar and Gustavo Gaviria for the use of Panamanian air bases. Noriega's fees for such services were $200,000 per trip. Floyd Carlton later testified in a U.S. courtroom that their operation flew U.S. guns to the contras in Nicaragua and brought cocaine into the United States on the return flight.
"The CIA protected these operations. When the DEA boss in Panama City suggested an investigation into the billions of dollars of drug money passing through Panama, the local CIA station chief insisted that such an investigation must be forbidden to touch Panamanian government officials.
"In 1984, the Enterprise was reorganized, and Noriega's contra-drug operations shifted northward from Panama to Costa Rica, Honduras and El Salvador. Between October 1984 and June 1985, the gun-for-drugs operation run by Floyd Carlton alone moved at least four tons of cocaine through northern Costa Rica.
"In 1986, the CIA's Duane Clarridge and Oliver North met with Noriega to discuss how to stop the U.S. media from exposing Noriega's operations. North hired a new public relations firm for Noriega. From this evidence it is clear that the top CIA official Clarridge remained deeply involved in these operations.
"I'm not in the arms business. I'm not in the explosives business. I'm not in the drug business...This is a Communist disinformation campaign to try to smear the reputation of the CIA, to try to smear the reputation of our own government."
"According to eyewitness testimony, weapons destined for the contras were flown in small planes to the [Hull] ranch. The planes were then refueled and returned to the United States with cargoes of cocaine. On at least two occasions, according to the testimony, Hull was present while bags of cocaine were transferred to the planes. The report describes successful efforts by United States Embassy officials in Costa Rica to frustrate an investigation by the U.S. attorney in Miami into Hull's activities."
Kerry subcommittee report
"The guns-for-drugs operations increasingly used the airstrip on the 1,500-acre Costa Rican ranch of an American named John Hull. Hull lived the life of a feudal Latin America patrón. The CIA's station chief in Costa Rica openly said that Hull was an agent, working on 'military supply and other operations on behalf of the Contras'. Hull himself told the Washington Times (Jan. 17, 1989) that from 1982 to 1986 he served as the CIA's chief liaison with the Nicaraguan rebels in Costa Rica.
"In 1983, Hull traveled to Miami and Washington. In Washington, he was taken to meet Oliver North by Robert Owen. Owen was officially an aide of then-Senator Dan Quayle. However a report written by CIA officer Glenn Robinette described Owen as a "young CIA officer." After this meeting Hull started receiving a $10,000 monthly retainer from Oliver North. On the Miami leg of his trip, Hull met with drug smugglers George Morales and Frank Castro. Morales and his pilot Gary Betzner began flying drugs and guns for the contra supply operation--using Hull's ranch, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, and Ilopango Air Force Base in El Salvador. These operations expanded greatly after 1984.
"The Kerry subcommittee 'found no fewer than five witnesses who testified to Hull's involvement in the narcotics traffic'. One witness, Gary Wayne Betzner, testified that he piloted two plane-loads of contra weapons for Morales to John Hulls' ranch in Costa Rica. On both occasions, he said, about 500 kilograms of cocaine were transferred to his plane under Hull's supervision for the return flight to the United States.
"In May 1990, Colombian drug kingpin Carlos Lehder told ABC News that Hull was 'pumping about 30 tons of cocaine into the United States' every year. Oliver North received reports about the drug financing of the Costa Rican contras from his representative Robert Owen.
"Here is a smoking gun in the CIA-cocaine controversy: Hull was a known CIA agent seen supervising the loading of cocaine, and he was protected from investigation by orders from the U.S. embassy."
George Morales testified to the Kerry subcommittee, that his drug-smuggling operation was recruited into the guns-for-drugs operations by Octaviano César in 1983. César, then a top aide of contra leader Eden Pastora, said he spoke for the CIA and would have the drug charges against Morales dropped. Journalist Leslie Cockburn says eight sources, including high-level Washington officials, have confirmed that César was a CIA agent. One of Morales' pilots, Fabio Carrasco, testified at a trial that he delivered millions of dollars of cocaine earnings to Octaviano César and another contra leader. He also said that, with CIA approval, he personally supervised flights of cocaine from Costa Rica to Fort Lauderdale."
"In 1984, as this contra supply operation was tightened up, Felix Rodríguez appeared heading up the operation at El Salvador's Ilopango Air Force Base. Rodríguez's career reads like a history lesson in CIA crimes. In 1961, Rodríguez participated in the CIA's failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. In 1967, he was the CIA agent on the scene in Bolivia when the guerrilla leader Ché Guevara was captured. In his autobiography, Rodríguez claims he personally gave the command to execute Che. Rodríguez liked to show off Che's wristwatch as a memento of this crime.
"In Vietnam Rodríguez worked under CIA big-shot Donald Gregg during the murderous death-squad campaign known as 'Operation Phoenix'--where CIA agents systematically executed thousands of Vietnamese civilians suspected of supporting revolutionary forces. Rodríguez commanded an elite intelligence unit that threw captives out of helicopters.
"Though Cuban-born, Rodríguez became a naturalized U.S. citizen, allowing him to become a full CIA officer. Officially he 'retired' from the CIA after 15 years--and in the early 1980s he worked with the Salvadoran military, organizing counterinsurgency against guerrillas.
"In 1985, George Bush and Donald Gregg personally assigned Rodríguez to the contra supply effort. Rodríguez (using the name 'Max Gómez') emerged as a commander of the contra supply effort at Ilopango Air Force Base. Officially, he had been 'hired' by the Salvadoran Air Force. One military intelligence agent, Terry Reed, described Max Gómez as 'HMIC'--the Head Motherfucker in Charge--who liked to brag that he had been personally chosen by the White House for the job. His work was supervised at the top by Oliver North and Donald Gregg.
"And, under Rodríguez, the drug trade flourished at Ilopango. Celerino Castillo, the DEA's agent in El Salvador, reported on the huge drug-for-arms smuggling operation run out of Ilopango by the CIA. Castillo wrote, 'my reports contained not only the names of traffickers, but their destinations, flight paths, tail numbers, and the date and time of each flight. Hundreds of flights each week delivered cocaine to the buyers and returned money headed for the great isthmus laundering machine in Panama'. Castillo said the operation was run out of one hangar owned by the CIA and another hangar run by the NSC.
"Milian Rodríguez, a drug money launderer, told the Kerry subcommittee that Felix Rodríguez had him launder millions of dollars from dozens of Miami companies tied to cocaine smugglers. For one company alone, he moved about $200,000 a month to the contras in cash by courier. Milian Rodríguez said 'Felix would call me with instructions on where to send the money'. One of the people who got this money was Adolfo Calero, the civilian head of the contras and a known CIA agent. Felix Rodríguez acknowledged that Milian Rodríguez was an old friend, but denied asking him for drug money.
"Richard Brenneke, an Oregon-based arms dealer and former CIA agent, claims he tried to tell Donald Gregg that he was being asked to fly drugs into Texas. Brenneke says Gregg told him, 'You do what you were assigned to do. Don't question the decision of your betters'. Gregg denies ever speaking with Brenneke.
"In 1981, just as the contra war was starting, two Nicaraguan contras, Danielo Blandón and Norwin Meneses, met with Col. Enrique Bermúdez in Honduras. Bermúdez was a top Nicaraguan CIA agent in charge of forming the Fuerza Democrática Nicaraguense (FDN), the main contra force. Blandón was a businessman from a family of wealthy Nicaraguan slumlords who had worked for Nicaragua's pro-U.S. Somoza dictatorship. Meneses was Nicaragua's biggest drug smuggler.
"It is not known what was said at this meeting. However after Blandón and Meneses had been brought together by Bermúdez, they set up a large cocaine distribution ring in California. Meneses organized the operation from San Francisco, while Blandón was told to find buyers in the Black communities of Compton and South Central. According to Blandón, his operation sold almost a ton of cocaine in its first year--$54 million worth at wholesale prices.
A 1984 photograph documents that, at the height of these drug operations, Meneses was meeting with Adolfo Calero, who was then the leader of the contras and who was himself a known CIA agent. These relationships were documented by Gary Webb in his recent and now-famous series in the San Jose Mercury.
Adolfo Calero became a "darling" of the American evangelical community, making several tours of evangelical churches and claiming that what he was doing, he was doing in the Name of Jesus Christ.
"Since Webb's series was published this summer, more evidence has surfaced. Adolfo Calero now admits that he met Meneses four times in California, and that he met with both Meneses and Blandón once in Honduras.
"Webb's research reveals that the contra networks were involved in the distribution of cocaine. AND IT REVEALS THAT THIS CONTRA-COCAINE NETWOORK DELIBERATELY CHOSE TO TARGET BLACK COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR DRUGS.
"Webb's research has come under some intense attack. The New York Times, for example, wrote: '...while there are indications in American intelligence files and elsewhere that Mr. Meneses and Mr. Blandón may indeed have provided modest support for the rebels, including perhaps some weapons, there is no evidence that either man was a rebel official or had anything to do with the CIA. Nor is there proof that the relatively small amounts of cocaine they sometimes claimed to have brokered on behalf of the insurgents had a remotely significant role in the explosion of crack that began around the same time'.
"In an example of double-think, the New York Times writes: 'Although Mr. Bermúdez, like other contra leaders, was often paid by the CIA, he was not a CIA agent'. Usually, the New York Times (and everyone else) considers anyone receiving a CIA paycheck to be a CIA agent!
"What the Webb series revealed is that CIA agents holding leading posts in the contra movement, Bermúdez and Calero, had working relationships with cocaine distributors within the U.S. Webb shows that these relationships started in the very earliest days of that contra war.
"Were the cocaine sales of the Blandón-Meneses ring 'relatively small'? They were large, involving tons of cocaine. And, at the same time, compared to the larger flood of cocaine entering the United States, they may have been relatively small. HOWEVER, AS WE HAVE SHOWN IN THIS ARTICLE, THE KEY TRANSPORTATION ROUTES FOR MUCH OF THIS LARGER FLOW OF COCAAINE WERE ALSO SET UP AND PROTECTED BY THE CIA AND ITS AGENTS."
NOW STOP AND THINK ABOUT ALL THIS
Now stop for a minute, take a step back, and consider all that you have learned from this article:
Contrary to most popular belief, prior to the introduction of crack-cocaine into the black community, drug addiction per se was largely a white affair, and was confined primarily to:
Hallucinogenics like LSD which was mainly a phenomenon confined to white college students and "Haight-Ashbury" types.
Cocaine usage of the "Cole Porter variety" which was largely confined to the Bohemian denizens of the "Village" in New York and the Hollywood set."
Heroine usage which was too expensive for poor blacks to indulge in.
In the very early 1980s - five years after the end of the Vietnam War and the "Black Revolution," which ultimately became inextricably bound up with that war - the CIA began trafficking crack-cocaine into poor black neighborhoods throughout the country. This was no coincidence; the white elites were determined to stamp out the fires of revolution in the black community by "turning it on" to crack-cocaine.
Crack-cocaine was purposefully NOT trafficked to middle-class white neighborhoods; It was distributed ONLY in poor black communities.
Crack-cocaine is a drug that is so addictive that once one is hooked, it is virtually impossible for one to break free of it.
In this connection, one has to be extremely naïve to believe that the government was not aware of the addictive "quality" of crack-cocaine - and what this addiction would mean insofar as the black community was concerned.
Moreover, one has to be extremely naïve to believe that this was not discussed at the highest levels of government - and that such people as Vice President and later President GEORGE BUSH I, Vice President DAN QUALE, Director of the Central Intelligence WILLIAM CASEY, CIA Division Chief for Latin America, DUANE CLARRIDGE, and member of the National Security Council Lieutenant Colonel OLIVER NORTH, and many, many others high up in the government were not fully cognizant of what all this would do the black community.
The resulting drug-epidemic has turned countless numbers of black men and women who otherwise would have been the new Stokley Carmichaels and Bobbie Seals of an on-going "Black Revolution against elite power in this country to crack-heads whose only focus in life is getting their next "fix."
When combined with the new "Three Strike Laws" - the crack-cocaine epidemic has reduced vast numbers of black males to permanent wards of America's BRUTAL criminal justice system. This fact has made it all the more dangerous for blacks to participate in street demonstrations against the government out of fear of permanent incarceration.
The fact that so many blacks now have criminal records has made it easy for the elites to DEMONIZE blacks and, thus, introduce extremely BRUTAL police methodologies into black neighborhoods, making these neighborhoods vast combat zones, and making the police more an army of occupation than a local police force charged with the safety of those they are policing..
You're surprised that the rich are capable of such things? That they are infected with so much depravity? Well, you shouldn't be in light of the New Testament.
Dom Helder Camara of Brazil was right when he said:
"I used to think, when I was a child, that Christ might have been exaggerating when He warned about the dangers of wealth. Today I know better. I know how ... (impossible) it is to be rich and still keep the milk of human kindness. Money (or the desire for money) has a dangerous way of putting scales on one's eyes, a dangerous way of freezing people's hands, eyes, lips and hearts."
It's not without reason that Jesus said of the rich:
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:23-24) [And one should take note of the fact that the "needle" referred to here is a SEWING needle, not some imaginary door in one of Jerusalem's gates - a story made up by rich Christians out of "whole cloth" to soften the effect of the Lord's words here.]
Indeed, Jesus is so "turned off" by the rich, that the Bible says concerning the Coming Kingdom of our dear Savior,
"He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away." Luke 1:53)
Indeed, the Bible says:
"But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
"Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
"Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." (6:24-26)
Very obviously, then - at least according to the Bible - the elites, who are EXCEEDINGLY rich, are very, very capable of the kind of depravity described in this article. These are very dangerous and despicable men and women, despite the fact that they are well-dressed, well, coifed, well educated, well spoken of, and smell good - these men and women who stand guard over such corporations as General Electric, Ford, General Motors, Boeing, Exxon-Mobil, etc.
These are the people about whom Professor C. Wright Mills of Colombia University has said:
"... in this particular epoch a conjunction of historical circumstances has led to the rise of an elite of power ... the men of the circles composing this elite, severally and collectively, now make such key decisions as are made; and that, given the enlargement and the centralization of the means of power now available, the decisions that they make and fail to make carry more consequences for more people than has ever been the case in the world history of mankind."
Mills continues, elaborating on the character of these malicious people and their pernicious impact on society at large:
"Whenever the standards of the moneyed life prevail, the man with money, NO MATTER HOW HE GOT IT, will eventually be respected. (In America), it is not only that men want money; it is that their very standards are pecuniary. In a society (i.e., the American society) in which the money-maker has ... no serious rival for repute and honor, the word 'practical' comes to mean 'useful for private gain' and 'common sense', 'the sense to get ahead financially'."
This is the truth of the matter, and even secularists recognize that fact.
You don't believe this? Then surely you are one of those who -
"… glories in appearance, and not in heart." (2 Cor. 5:12)
As a result, there is no possibility for you to come to grips with the evil that is at this present moment engulfing ALL of mankind like some kind of noxious mist emanating from a dirty, polluted swamp. Truly we are immersed in dark times, and the Bible counsels us -
"… to … anoint our eyes with eyesalve, that we may see." (Revelation 3:18)
How can we take action if we don't see the danger that is enveloping us?
The Bible says,
"We have … the sure word of prophecy; WHEREUNTO YE DO WELL THAT YE TAKE HEED, as unto a LIGHT THAT SHINETH IN A DARK PLACE ..." (2 Peter 1:19)
I URGE you, therefore, with all of my heart to sign up for the TRAINING. Find out for yourselves what the Scripture has to say on the matters we have been discussing. Let the Light of the Word shine in your heart.
You may sign up for the training here and begin putting your life on the line for Christ. This training well equip you for the hard times that are coming, and it well involve you in action. It will bring you out of your isolation into the open field where people will join you or cast insults at you and eventually persecute you for your belief. But isn't this what Christiantiy is about, and isn't this what Christ said:
"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
"Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matt. 5:11-12, 14-16)
Finally, we continue to need your financial support as we begin to transition the ministry out of North America to Germany. So I say to you, if the spiritual treasures that we have ministered unto you have profited you, then please respond with your material treasures. As Paul said under similar circumstances so many years ago:
"If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?" (1 Cor. 9:11)
God bless you all,
We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles, "The Third World as a Model for the New World Order," Inside the American New World Order System" and "The American Empire: The Corporate / Pentagon / CIA / Missionary Archipelago."]
