It looks like world government, ooops, "global governance" is being advanced in the immediate wake of the 2011 "Arab Spring" and 2012 current events. The United States just came in for severe criticism from this panel of wannabe global governors: The following is from the Voice of America story by Selah Hennessy
LONDON — A commission headed by former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan charges that the soaring cost of U.S. elections is a major hindrance to democracy. The charge appears in a report published Friday by the Global Commission on Elections and Democracy, which says its goal is to promote the integrity of elections.
Former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan spoke to VOA at the launch of the report in London.
He says each nation must develop an election framework that suits its needs.
The commission members include Javier Solana and former USA Secretary of State Madeline Albright.
When the Commission was launched last spring, this then came from its own website:
"As pro-democracy campaigners take to the streets across the Arab world, and as 19 African countries prepare to hold national elections this year, an international initiative to promote the integrity of elections was launched on 4 March 2011 in Pretoria, South Africa.
"Recent events in Côte d’Ivoire and elsewhere have highlighted more clearly than ever that elections are vital to democratic government, but they are not sufficient. Too often, we see incumbents rig the elections, illicit funding or media bias distort the electoral process, and losing candidates refuse to accept the results. Where elections are marred in these ways, people lose faith in democracy and the political process, and human rights and security are put at risk.
"The Global Commission on Elections, Democracy and Security, jointly created by the International Institute for Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) and the Kofi Annan Foundation, is made up of 12 eminent individuals from around the world, including Kofi Annan, Ernesto Zedillo, Martti Ahtisaari, Madeleine Albright and Amartya Sen. It aims to highlight the importance of the integrity of elections to achieving a more secure, prosperous and stable world.
Ex. Gov. Jesse Ventura is considering running for president in 2016 as an individual, no third party, if he can be gotten on the ballot and guaranteed access to debate in all 50 states. Might be a nice change.
The two party system is a two party fraud, about time we do away with all political parties, something we did not originally have and that the founding fathers considered an unwholesome thing.
Since all presidential nominees have to be Bilderberg-approved first - it's no wonder that many people are starting to refer to our upcoming election as a vote for 'Obamney.'
Either way, November 6th will be a win/win for the New World Order Global Elite.
Do you think that all of these inflammatory world-wide incidents - of religious groups at war with each other - is setting the stage for the New World Order Global Elite's grand plan?
Do you think that, one day in the future, an international law will be passed outlawing all of the TRADITIONAL religions (Muslim, Jewish, Catholic & Protestant)? Do you think that people will be forbidden from being allowed to openly practice their respective traditional faiths under the pretext that these fundamentalist religions are organizations of 'exclusion'... and thus demand that all must come together ('for the greater good' of course) under a One World Religion based on 'inclusion'?
Finally - drum roll please - will the Anti-Christ then enter from the wings on cue?
The Lebanese news organization Tayyar.org is reporting that the murdered American ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was raped prior to his killing September 11, 2012...
The very land that the U.N stands on was donated
by the R*ck*f*llr$, who are the globalist elite New World Oder poster children.
They also have been funding abortion on demand
through Planned Parenthood for decades.
“Prophet” Bob Jones, after coming out of a trance, proclaims God is raising up a “Joel’s Army” against the “religious spirit” using Joel 2:1-11 as proof-text.
Maybe the Christians that might get thrown in the FEMA camps are these MSOG crew.
This contrasts the Alpha Course with the rival and better Christianity Explored.
Guess where I first heard of the Alpha Course.
So I went digging. (I keep pretty much to myself, so I don't run into all that much in person. Never heard of it before this, but it is rampant.)
here are several articles on the matter.
http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~emcd/index30.htm it starts with Wimber
Read with discernment, but read. Springmeier is either gullible or a plant to make things look too wierd or unlikely, less kooky than David Icke, or he means well but has gotten under some bad spirit influences or has a problematic world view.
Gullibility - some people mentioned like John Todd have been pretty well discredited, and even if there was any truth to what Todd said, he could have been a plant with false information also.
Bad influence - Springmeier seems to consider William Branham good, because he opposed obvious occult stuff like fortune telling and of course freemasonry. That doesn't mean Branham wasn't channelling a deceiving spirit at least part of the time himself.
Springmeier also is into a kind of semi anti semitism.
Then of course, he got convicted on bank robbery. supposedly this was a setup to get even for his writings or something. But all his opposition to this evil wouldn't rule out his being seduceable by one of those groups who like to finance themselves this way, and kept quiet about it. Whatever the truth on the matter, to get nailed on this even as a frameup means you have to be lacking in discernment to be at the wrong place at the right time not to mention associates etc.
So Springmeier should not be taken as Holy Writ, neither should he be ignored. Use as a starting point for research, check the sources cited.
Don't drink the Ron Paul kool aid! Wake up from the Ron Paul Deception!
"European Union officials are asking national governments to give up control of their banks as they try to pull the region closer together to solve its crippling financial crisis."
"Jose Manuel Barroso, the Commission's president, warned that giving up control of banks would be just the start and that countries would have to get used to handing over powers to Europe in order to solve the region's debt problems."
"A deep and genuine economic and monetary union ... means ultimately that the present European Union must evolve," he added. "And let's not be afraid of the words. We will need to move toward a federation of nation states."
which is to the advantage of elites and no one else.
Tarpley does the best analysis explaining what was back of Paul, and back of Romney by the way, the same thing back of Obama but who now figure Romney is more useful.
Probably because he would move us faster into confrontation than Obama would, since he is more cautious.
Forget about parties. Think power blocs often competing with each other, but as a united front behind both parties.
Jesse Ventura says he will run in 2016 as an independent IF he can be got on the ballot on all 50 states AND be allowed in all the debates,
and wants to get rid of all parties.
To call Ron Paul murderous because of his antipathy to Medicare is wild talk. Murder means a deliberate desire to kill. Paul simply believes that Medicare is the wrong way to do healthcare. Do you have any basis for imputing murderous motives to him - such as an off-guard comment that the poor should die, or something else? Or is it simply that you believe you see farther and more deeply than other mortals?
I don't know about his argument for Marx, I think Marx may have been used by British interests but was a real evil sort on his own. In fact, he was the one who almost singlehandedly hammered through atheism as a plank in the Communist International platform. Marx was driven more by ambition - to rule the socialist revolutionary scene - than by ideology, his choice of stuff to publish was heavily driven by what would drive down and out whoever his main rival at the moment was. KARL MARX AND THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO by Elliot Erikson (PhD dissertation Stanford, my father, extensive excerpts at
Tarpley may sometimes be overconcerned about British game playing, but you really should read his online free book Against Oligarchy at http://tarpley.net and
George Bush the Unauthorized Biography, and he did a similar hatchet job on Obama and is working up all the dirt on Romney in bits and pieces.
Tarpley is a historian who notices patterns of behavior and correctly predicted the whole Ron Paul debacle when no one else did.
LaRouche borrowed some of Tarpley's ideas, but Tarpley considers LaRouche a nut or a game player or something.
I wouldn't underestimate him.
how do you see Tarpley as doing this?
here is a link of interest regarding William Branham.
"The Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace," he says. In another clip, the former Massachusetts governor is shown discussing Iran's nuclear programme, and warning that America itself could come under attack.
"If I were Iran - a crazed fanatic, I'd say let's get a little fissile material to Hezbollah, have them carry it to Chicago or some other place, and then if anything goes wrong, or America starts acting up, we'll just say, 'Guess what? Unless you stand down, why, we're going to let off a dirty bomb'."
On Monday, Mother Jones posted another clip from the same fundraiser in which Mr Romney disparages those who would vote for his Democratic rival, President Barack Obama. The Republican candidate is shown saying that the 47% of Americans who back the president do not pay income tax and would never vote for Mr Romney. "There are 47% who are with him [Mr Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it."
Mr Romney said in the video that his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
I'M A BRIT BUT THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE BETTER CANDIDATE TO ME!
It was already foretold by Ezekiel, this war.
Why don't you mind your own business then!
I am sure that the Brits would be only too happy to "mind their own business," but unfortunately, the failed foreign policies of the regime in Washington, and not some scrimy Youtube video clip, have MADE it their business - as well as the business of all those who are sending warships to sail beside ours in the Persian Gulf - in anticipation of all hell breaking loose if Iran tries to block the Strait of Hormuz.
And don't think for one minute that Russia would not get into the act. In fact, in the 1990's, it was thanks to "Russia's Man in Washington," Strobe Talbott, that there occurred a transfer of missile technology to Iran which Talbott and his confreres tried to sweep under the rug.
One more thing....President Bush as well as the Brits may very well have been vindicated as a result of the 500+ metric tons of yellowcake that was found in Iraq in 2008 and taken out of Iraq in secret......
Why "in secret???"...just months before Barack Obama was elected President after a vicious campaign in which then Senator Obama appeared to be competing more against outgoing President George W. Bush than Republican candidate Senator John McCain and continued making use of the "blame Bush" meme through most of his disastrous term.
After reading the above-linked Human events article, it occurs to me that perhaps Joe Wilson - and NOT Scooter Libby - deserves to be doing time in the slammer!!!
"Why don't you mind your own business then!"
Terribly sorry old chap, I thought you believed in free speech on your side of the water. Most of you do, anyway, and I'm very glad of that. Please ask Webster Tarpley to stop badmouthing us with his historically illiterate comments though.

Libya: Obama Admin Sent Unarmed British Firm to Protect U.S. Mission
EDITORS' NOTE: According to a source close to Breitbart News and high up in the intelligence community, the Obama administration's policy following Muammar Gaddafi's death has been to keep a "low profile" during a chaotic time. For this reason, according to the source, American Marines were not stationed at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli or the American consulate in Benghazi, as would typically have been the case. In the spirit of a "low profile," the administration didn't even want an American company in charge of private security. Blue Mountain, the British firm the State Department hired, was willing to abide by the "no bullets" Rules of Engagement (ROE), so were a logical fit for the contract. These sub-standard protections for American diplomats were signed by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in the ROE.
In essence, the Obama Administration tasked an unarmed British firm with security responsibilities that should have been handled by armed American servicemen, and it was all approved by the Secretary of State. Needless to say, the plan failed and an Ambassador was murdered, along with several others.
As of now, the State Department has not disclosed the full State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya.
Here is the full story. ....read more....
Obama wins right to indefinitely detain Americans under NDAA.
Published: 18 September, 2012,
Defense Authorization Act
"A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House’s ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process."
"Last week, a federal judge ruled that an temporary injunction on section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 must be made permanent, essentially barring the White House from ever enforcing a clause in the NDAA that can let them put any US citizen behind bars indefinitely over mere allegations of terrorist associations..."
action not only in the usual ways, but in the realm of marriage, this would in no way impugne His divinity, any more than His being tired or hungry or thirsty does.
However, if He had been married, this would have been included in the information the Apostles passed on to us. Personally I don't believe He was married, but I don't think it matters either way.
The whole point about The Incarnation is that He is fully human incarnation means ENFLESHMENT, physical, "like us in all regards but without sin."
People who think Jesus having been married would disprove Christianity must think we think He is too divine to be physical. We are not docetists. An early heresy of gnostic sort that held that He only SEEMED (docetism means seemism) to be physical.
The marriage at Cana is argued as proof, because His mother taking concern about the wine would point to it being His wedding, but it could have just as easily have been the wedding of one of His brothers or half brothers as you prefer.
9:45 AM here (Yes, I posted the link to expose the disgusting media and its deceptive ommissions. I agree with 10:59 AM that such are related to the fraudulent gnostic gospels.
Jesus Christ was never married! Yes he was and is fully human and Divine.
You don't even get it.
Jesus was not married.
He would have been constrained by his own
religion to pay attention to his wife, and
His mission on earth would not and did not
have that constraint hanging over it.
Furthermore Jesus was the Lamb slain before
the foundation of the earth. He was without
sin and blameless. He was spotless.
The idea of Jesus being married is the
core idea behind Gnosticism.
It's just a lie; a very old lie that pops up
whenever the devil thinks he can pass it off
again, because enough people have become
historically unlearned, complacent and just plain
Over the past few centuries, science can be said to have gradually chipped away at the traditional grounds for believing in God. Much of what once seemed mysterious — the existence of humanity, the life-bearing perfection of Earth, the workings of the universe — can now be explained by biology, astronomy, physics and other domains of science.
Although cosmic mysteries remain, Sean Carroll, a theoretical cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology, says there's good reason to think science will ultimately arrive at a complete understanding of the universe that leaves no grounds for God whatsoever.
(Plus read the 3,000+ comments and counting at the end of the article.)
You presented excellent reasons why Jesus was most definitely NOT married.
(The fact that we are even having this 'debate' - courtesy of the media - is very disturbing in and of itself.)
More importantly, this does not take away from the belief in God which who we can only understand in human words, but never know completely with our limited knowledge. Even in Christianity, Jesus is only one part of the trinity.
OK, let the bricks fly.
The divine angle to Him not being genetically transmissible, if He had a child it would only be human and not divine also.
The evidence pro and con Mary's perpetual virginity is too dicey to settle either way. The usual reasons for arguing her perpetual virginity that the EO uses don't hold water, not one of them.
HOWEVER Joseph disappears early on so the idea he was an older man with children from an earlier marriage fits the picture. These would be Jesus' brothers and sisters, since these terms are not used with the same precision we do.
Since the military were expected to be celibate if Mary was early on known to be an unusual spiritual warrior, perhaps it was decided fitting for her to take some oath of perpetual virginity.
NOW AS TO VIRGIN BIRTHS, the animals that do this if not mammalian the result is male. If mammalian, the result is female. Jesus is male, so He is not the result of a natural parthenogenesis, nor an induced one, which would result in the twin sister of the mother.
Neither is He the result of artificial insemination by aliens or whatever, since she is called "almah," which is more than merely betulah, intact hymen. Intact hymen means nothing reliably. The hymen can survive intercourse sometimes, if narrow and thick enough, but almah is more than just "young woman," it implies veiled, isolated, untouched. No petting even. non penetrative sex acts like dry humping, and of course oral sex or anal sex would leave the hymen intact, but this would be a technical virgin not an almah.
Also semen spills during such activities could end up in the vagina and the tadpole whip tail things (sperm) heading up the vagina and fertilizing an egg. This has happened occasionally.
Isaiah's use of the word almah rules all this out.
It's a bit more complex than that, but the point is that the offspring in all asexual reproduction ar genetically identical to the parent. Mary was femal and had two X chromosomes whereas Jesus was male and had an X and a Y, so they were not genetically identical. So there is a genetic miracle involved in the birth of Jesus. How I would love to see His Y chromosome (the one from the father)!
And no I don't believe the Ron Wyatt story about finding his blood in the rocks beneath a likely crucifixion site at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. He claimed to have had a sample DNA-tested and that the paternal contribution was missing, but would never specified the laboratory involved and other digs did not find the things he siaid he had (not just blood).
I believe you have it the wrong way round. BETULAH is virgin in Hebrew, ie never penetrated by a male, which is what counts; ALMA is young girl, typically of the age at which one would hope she is a virgin. Check with Jews and OT usage.
The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) is considering the cancellation of the Oslo Accords, a long-standing deal with Israel, including the associated economic and security pacts, after a proposal by PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas. The accords were an attempt to lay out an initial framework for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but left a number of important details about the end of the occupation and the status of settlements built on Palestinian land to "future" negotiations. — Antiwar.com

Almah meaning is drawn from Strong's Corcordance and the Jewish usage of words changed but there are other words for young girls, marriageable age beginning around 12 or 14.
Almah incl. a masculine version of the word for a student, implies an isolation.
The liberal take on Almah in Isaiah is wrong, it is not just female, not aged. LXX translated it parthenos, virgin.
Time: 00:14:19 “We’re never going to mature and develop godly character until we learn to live….. with the All-Seeing eye on us all the time.” — [Joyce Meyer - Transcript - Enjoying Everyday Life - Be Imitators of God - 7/10/2010]
Quote taken from discerningtheworld.com
Today I was looking up the World Wisdom Council as well as Abraham's Path Initiative. It brought back the good old days when there was much intellectual red meat to be found on this site, information given by blog contributors as well as Constance.
For a flashback to the good old days, check this out.
interesting history of the origin of "family planning" in the eugenics movement, itself racist to begin with. Even Darwin's first edition was subtitled with white supremacy and nonwhites as closer to the apes in mind.
I'm glad that the Bible doesn't need to give
us all the sexual details of right living. It
is very frank about things, especially in the
Law, but, unlike Christine, it thankfully leaves out
minutia and details that are unnecessary to make the point.
It does matter, a lot, that Jesus wasn't married
in this world, and indeed he was, or will be
married to his church. Thank you anon 3:33.
Christine, you've read the Bible, that's good. But you seem to be so filled with David Icke, and every other wind of doctrine that comes down the pike (net) that
it's all jumbled together in your mind.
"Much study is a weariness to the flesh. Obey God and keep his commandments."
By Paul Wallis

'Sydney- Middle Eastern perceptions of the threat of a war with Iran and those of the West are very different. Exactly how different can be seen in the speculation is appearing online in the region regarding the ramifications of a US/Iran war.'
'Al Jazeera believes that a war with Iran would escalate into a regional war with Iranian “proxies” striking at the US and predicts a war which would make the last decade look “tame by comparison”. This alludes to the Taliban style-asymmetrical warfare pattern and methods similar to the insurgency in Iraq.'
'None of this is to suggest that the United States would not "win" a war with Iran, but given the incredibly painful costs of Iraq and Afghanistan; wars fought against weak, poorly organised enemies lacking broad influence, politicians campaigning for war with Iran are leading the American people into a battle which will be guaranteed to make the past decade of fighting look tame in comparison...'
Now as for details, those details ARE ESSENTIAL to make the point, because anyone who knows a little can jump to conclusions that work against the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ.
the church being A FIGURATIVE bride (do you expect Him to be engaging in some kind of sex act with a collective?) it does not matter if He had a literal bride.
Now don't get me wrong, I do not believe He did. I also don't believe that if it were established that He did, that would be relevant.
The only reason this sort of thing is thought to derail Christianity is either the speaker thinks that Jesus' divinity is understood (or supposed to be understood) as at the expense of His humanity, OR they think that the whole edifice of Christianity hinges on traditions and inventions, The Bible included, of an organization that didn't even exist when the NT was being written, i.e., the RC, and Christianity was growing by peaceful conversion for over three centuries during which the authorities either ignored or persecuted it, and Christianity had no worldly power to use to shape anything.
Finally, the argument that Jesus is not a polygamist, so cannot have had a literal wife and the Church as wife, fails for two reasons. First, the literal wife marriage ended with His death, which was not a near death situation but actual death, and His Resurrection didn't change that.
Second, the Church being a composite thing consisting of millions and millions or billions of individuals, yes, by definition, He would be a polygamist.
But this is the sort of absurdity you can get when you push a metaphor into too literal an analogy.
Another error of similar nature, is the idea of Manifest Sons of God that the Church as mystical body of Christ is identical with Christ ergo the Second Coming is some kind of empowerment of the believers.
Song of Solomon is double entendre in lots of places, and in terms of condemnation of Israel's attitude and behavior near obscene explicitness is stated in The Prophets. I am sure there are some other examples but these are the ones that come to mind.
You post here very frequently, and often very far from the subjects of Constance's articles. Please do the hard work of getting the viewing figures up on your own blog and posting your ideas there, rather than hijacking Constance's already successful blog and dragging it downmarket. A consistent strand of various posters is that they scarcely come here any more because of it.
Have you never been at a dinner party at which one guest talks nonstop over all the rest...?
Dinner party? The comments section of this blog is almost as like sitting through the movie "My Dinner with Aundre".
Yes we have the option to collapse, but when one individual dominates the blog the need to collapse the majority of the comments becomes too much. And when the blog hog extends her expertise to every post and ridicules everyone as having "comprehension problems" for disagreement, you have to throw your hands up and give up.
Christine reminds us implicitly that a woman who has never been penetrated can conceive if an ejaculation of semen takes place close to her genitals, but Christine is not suggesting that this was the case with Mary, and the relevant Biblical verse is where Mary states that she "knew not a man" - a suitably general phrase that confirms Mary's chasteness.
