Patriot Act Was Reauthorized Today And MADE PERMANENT

--The Secret Patriot Act II Destroys What Is Left of American
Liberty--!

*Excerpt from below:

The second Patriot Act is a mirror image of powers
that Julius Caesar
and Adolf Hitler gave themselves.
Whereas the First Patriot Act only gutted the First, Third, Fourth
and Fifth Amendments,
and seriously damaged the Seventh and the Tenth,
the Second Patriot Act reorganizes
the entire Federal government
as well as many areas of state government
under the dictatorial con! trol
of the Justice Department,
the Office of Homeland Security
and the FEMA NORTHCOM military command.
The Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003,
also known as the Second Patriot Act
is by its very structure the definition of dictatorship.

I challenge all Americans
to study the new Patriot Act
and to compare it to the Constitution,
Bill of Rights
and Declaration of Independence.
Ninety percent of the act
has nothing to do with terrorism
and is instead a giant Federal power-grab
with tentacles reaching into every facet of our society.

It strips American citizens of all of their rights
and grants the government and its private agents
total immunity.

Here is a quick thumbnail sketch
of just some of the draconian measures
encapsulated within this tyrannical legislation:

An update from http://www.lifeboatnews.com Paul Grignon http://www.lifeboatnews.com http://www.paulgrignonart.com Patriot Act Was Reauthorized Today And MADE PERMANENT It never ceases to amaze me how this Bush guy is so lucky--- having some 'terrorrists' pull something just before he wants to ram something through Congress-- if I was him I'd just buy lottery tickets for the rest of my life..... ************************************************************** Patriot Act Reauthorization Set to Pass House Infowars.com | July 19, 2005 Congressman Ron Paul’s office has notified infowars.com that the Patriot Act reauthorization is set to pass the House on Thursday or Friday. As things stand now, there may be even less votes against the legislation this time than when the first vote was taken on October 27, 2001. EXCERPTS: "Ron Paul’s office said July 19, 2005 that they’re throwing everything at us at once: CAFTA, the Supreme Court nomination, and making the Patriot Act permanent. [while Americans are on vacation - CR] "Every American needs to contact Congress and tell them to control our borders, not butcher the Bill of Rights. Remember, Congress wasn't even allowed to read the Patriot Act in 2001. This time, they know what they’re doing. They just hope we don't." RELATED: Read Alex Jones' Analysis of the Secret Patriot Act II, for which he won a Project Censored 2004 award: TOTAL POLICE STATE TAKEOVER The Secret Patriot Act II Destroys What Is Left of American Liberty A Brief Analysis of the Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003, Also Known as Patriot Act II By Alex Jones www.infowars.com (Posted Feb 10, 2003) Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tex) told the Washington Times that no member of Congress was allowed to read the first Patriot Act that was passed by the House on October 27, 2001. The first Patriot Act was universally decried by civil libertarians and Constitutional scholars from across the political spectrum. William Safire, while writing for the New York Times, described the first Patriot Act's powers by saying that President Bush was seizing dictatorial control. On February 7, 2003 the Center for Public Integrity, a non-partisan public interest think-tank in DC, revealed the full text of the Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003. The classified document had been leaked to them by an unnamed source inside the Federal government. The document consisted of a 33-page section by section analysis of the accompanying 87-page bill. *Note: On February 10, 2003 I discovered that not only was there a House version that had been covertly brought to Hastert, but that many provisions of the now public Patriot Act II had already been introduced as pork barrel riders on Senate Bill S. 22. Dozens of subsections and even the titles of the subsections are identical to those in the House version. This is very important because it catches the Justice Department in a bald-faced lie. The Justice Department claimed that the secret legislation brought into the House was only for study, and that at this time there was no intention! to try and pass it. Now upon reading S. 22, it is clear that the leadership of the Senate is fully aware of the Patriot Act II, and have passed these riders out of their committees into the full bill. I spent two hours scanning through S. 22 and, let me tell you, it is a nightmare for anyone who loves liberty. It even contains the Our Lady of Peace Act that registers all gun owners. It bans the private sale of all firearms, creates a Federal ballistics database, and much more. There are other bills in the Senate that grant the Federal government sweeping powers. S.45 states in section one that the office for State and local government coordination for Homeland Security will no longer just oversee, but that now local cities critical functions will be headed by a Federal director. On Tuesday, February 11th, we noted a story in The Times-Picayune with the headline: Nagin announces major overhaul of City Hall --New Homeland Security office to oversee cops, firemen, emergency ag! ency. The Federal power-grab taking place is widespread and all Americans must mobilize to resist it. Another interesting bill is S. 16. S. 16 is a smorgasbord of Federal funding and control over local police departments and needs to be examined closely. S. 89, The Universal National Service Act of 2003 is the hallmark of an authoritarian society. The description of the bill is, "To provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." We have looked at some of the programs that the Federal government has already been setting up for service here in the "homeland" and they include East German-style tattletale squads of every type, which are just basically a super TIPS program. The nightmare goes on and on. Check it out for yourself. The Patriot Act II bill itself is stamp! ed "Confidential -Not for Distribution." Upon reading the analysis and bill, I was stunned by the scientifically crafted tyranny contained in the legislation. The Justice Department Office of Legislative Affairs admits that they had indeed covertly transmitted a copy of the legislation to Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, (R-Il) and the Vice President of the United States, Dick Cheney as well as the executive heads of federal law enforcement agencies. It is important to note that no member of Congress was allowed to see the first Patriot Act before its passage, and that no debate was tolerate by the House and Senate leadership. The intentions of the White House and Speaker Hastert
concerning Patriot Act II appear to be a carbon copy replay
of the events that led to the unprecedented passage
of the first Patriot Act.

There are two glaring areas
that need to be looked at concerning this new legislation:

1. The secretive tactics being used by the Wh! ite House
and Speaker Hastert to keep even the existence of this legislation
secret
would be more at home in Communist China than in the United States.

The fact that Dick Cheney
publicly managed the steamroller passage of the first Patriot Act,
insuring
that no one was allowed to read it
and publicly threatening members of Congress
that if they didn’t vote in favor of it
that they would be blamed for the next terrorist attack,
is by the White House’s own definition terrorism.

The move to clandestinely craft and then bully passage
of any legislation by the Executive Branch
is clearly an impeachable offence.

2. The second Patriot Act is a mirror image of powers
that Julius Caesar
and Adolf Hitler gave themselves.
Whereas the First Patriot Act only gutted the First, Third, Fourth
and Fifth Amendments,
and seriously damaged the Seventh and the Tenth,
the Second Patriot Act reorganizes
the entire Federal government
as well as many areas of state government
under the dictatorial con! trol
of the Justice Department,
the Office of Homeland Security
and the FEMA NORTHCOM military command.
The Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003,
also known as the Second Patriot Act
is by its very structure the definition of dictatorship.

I challenge all Americans to study the new Patriot Act and to compare it
to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.
Ninety percent of the act has nothing to do with terrorism and is
instead a giant Federal power-grab with tentacles reaching into every
facet of our society. It strips American citizens of all of their rights
and grants the government and its private agents total immunity.

Here is a quick thumbnail sketch of just some of the draconian measures
encapsulated within this tyrannical legislation:

SECTION 501 (Expatriation of Terrorists) expands the Bush administration
’s "enemy combatant" definition to all American citizens who "may" have
violated any provision of Section 802 of the ! first Patriot Act.
(Section 802 is the new definition of domestic terrorism, and the
definition is "any action that endangers human life that is a violation
of any Federal or State law.") Section 501 of the second Patriot Act
directly connects to Section 125 of the same act. The Justice Department
boldly claims that the incredibly broad Section 802 of the First USA
Patriot Act isn’t broad enough and that a new, unlimited definition of
terrorism is needed.

Under Section 501 a US citizen engaging in lawful activities can be
grabbed off the street and thrown into a van never to be seen again. The
Justice Department states that they can do this because the person "had
inferred from conduct" that they were not a US citizen. Remember Section
802 of the First USA Patriot Act states that any violation of Federal or
State law can result in the "enemy combatant" terrorist designation.

SECTION 201 of the second Patriot Act makes it a criminal act for any
member of the governme! nt or any citizen to release any information
concerning the incarceration or whereabouts of detainees. It also states
that law enforcement does not even have to tell the press who they have
arrested and they never have to release the names.

SECTION 301 and 306 (Terrorist Identification Database) set up a
national database of "suspected terrorists" and radically expand the
database to include anyone associated with suspected terrorist groups
and anyone involved in crimes or having supported any group designated
as "terrorist." These sections also set up a national DNA database for
anyone on probation or who has been on probation for any crime, and
orders State governments to collect the DNA for the Federal government.

SECTION 312 gives immunity to law enforcement engaging in spying
operations against the American people and would place substantial
restrictions on court injunctions against Federal violations of civil
rights across the board.

SECTION 101 will design! ate individual terrorists as foreign powers and
again strip them of all rights under the "enemy combatant" designation.

SECTION 102 states clearly that any information gathering, regardless of
whether or not those activities are illegal, can be considered to be
clandestine intelligence activities for a foreign power. This makes news
gathering illegal.

SECTION 103 allows the Federal government to use wartime martial law
powers domestically and internationally without Congress declaring that
a state of war exists.

SECTION 106 is bone-chilling in its straightforwardness. It states that
broad general warrants by the secret FSIA court (a panel of secret
judges set up in a star chamber system that convenes in an undisclosed
location) granted under the first Patriot Act are not good enough. It
states that government agents must be given immunity for carrying out
searches with no prior court approval. This section throws out the
entire Fourth Amendment against unre! asonable searches and seizures.

SECTION 109 allows secret star chamber courts to issue contemp charges
against any individual or corporation who refuses to incriminate
themselves or others. This sections annihilate the last vestiges of the
Fifth Amendment.

SECTION 110 restates that key police state clauses in the first Patriot
Act were not sunsetted and removes the five year sunset clause from
other subsections of the first Patriot Act. After all, the media has
told us: "this is the New America. Get used to it. This is forever."

SECTION 111 expands the definition of the "enemy combatant" designation.

SECTION 122 restates the government’s newly announced power of
"surveillance without a court order."

SECTION 123 restates that the government no longer needs warrants and
that the investigations can be a giant dragnet-style sweep described in
press reports about the Total Information Awareness Network. One passage
reads, "thus the focus of domestic sur! veillance may be less precise
than that directed against more conventional types of crime."

*Note: Over and over again, in subsection after subsection, the second
Patriot Act states that its new Soviet-type powers will be used to fight
international terrorism, domestic terrorism and other types of crimes.
Of course the government has already announced in Section 802 of the
first USA Patriot act that any crime is considered domestic terrorism.

SECTION 126 grants the government the right to mine the entire spectrum
of public and private sector information from bank records to
educational and m edical records. This is the enacting law to allow
ECHELON and the Total Information Awareness Network to totally break
down any and all walls of privacy.

The government states that they must look at everything to "determine"
if individuals or groups might have a connection to terrorist groups. As
you can now see, you are guilty until proven innocent.

SECTION 127 allows! the government to takeover coroners’ and medical
examiners’ operations whenever they see fit. See how this is like Bill
Clinton’s special medical examiner he had in Arkansas that ruled that
people had committed suicide when their arms and legs had been cut off.

SECTION 128 allows the Federal government to place gag orders on Federal
and State Grand Juries and to take over the proceedings. It also
disallows individuals or organizations to even try to quash a Federal
subpoena. So now defending yourself will be a terrorist action.

SECTION 129 destroys any remaining whistleblower protection for Federal
agents.

SECTION 202 allows corporations to keep secret their activities with
toxic biological, chemical or radiological materials.

SECTION 205 allows top Federal officials to keep all their financial
dealings secret, and anyone investigating them can be considered a
terrorist. This should be very useful for Dick Cheney to stop anyone
investigating Haliburton.

SECTION 303 sets up national DNA database of suspected terrorists. The
database will also be used to "stop other unlawful activities." It will
share the information with state, local and foreign agencies for the
same purposes.

SECTION 311 federalizes your local police department in the area of
information sharing.

SECTION 313 provides liability protection for businesses, especially big
businesses that spy on their customers for Homeland Security, violating
their privacy agreements. It goes on to say that these are all
preventative measures

has anyone seen Minority Report? This is the access hub for the Total
Information Awareness Network.

SECTION 321 authorizes foreign governments to spy on the American people
and to share information with foreign governments.

SECTION 322 removes Congress from the extradition process and allows
officers of the Homeland Security complex to extradite American citizens
anywhere they wish. I! t also allows Homeland Security to secretly take
individuals out of foreign countries.

SECTION 402 is titled "Providing Material Support to Terrorism." The
section reads that there is no requirement to show that the individual
even had the intent to aid terrorists.

SECTION 403 expands the definition of weapons of mass destruction to
include any activity that affects interstate or foreign commerce.

SECTION 404 makes it a crime for a terrorist or "other criminals" to use
encryption in the commission of a crime.

SECTION 408 creates "lifetime parole" (basically, slavery) for a whole
host of crimes.

SECTION 410 creates no statute of limitations for anyone that engages in
terrorist actions or supports terrorists. Remember: any crime is now
considered terrorism under the first Patriot Act.

SECTION 411 expands crimes that are punishable by death. Again, they
point to Section 802 of the first Patriot Act and state that any
terrorist act or support ! of terrorist act can result in the death
penalty.

SECTION 421 increases penalties for terrorist financing. This section
states that any type of financial activity connected to terrorism will
result to time in prison and $10-50,000 fines per violation.

SECTIONS 427 sets up asset forfeiture provisions for anyone engaging in
terrorist activities.

There are many other sections that I did not cover in the interest of
time. The American people were shocked by the despotic nature of the
first Patriot Act. The second Patriot Act dwarfs all police state
legislation in modern world history.

Usually, corrupt governments allow their citizens lots of wonderful
rights on paper, while carrying out their jackbooted oppression
covertly. From snatch and grab operations to warantless searches,
Patriot Act II is an Adolf Hitler wish list.

You can understand why President Bush, Dick Cheney and Dennis Hastert
want to keep this legislation secret not just from Cong! ress, but the
American people as well. Bill Allison, Managing Editor of the Center for
Public Integrity, the group that broke this story, stated on my radio
show that it was obvious that they were just waiting for another
terrorist attack to opportunistically get this new bill through. He then
shocked me with an insightful comment about how the Federal government
was crafting this so that they could go after the American people in
general. He also agreed that the FBI has been quietly demonizing
patriots and Christians and "those who carry around pocket
Constitutions."

I have produced two documentary films and written a book about what
really happened on September 11th. The bottom line is this: the
military-industrial complex carried the attacks out as a pretext for
control. Anyone who doubts this just hasn’t looked at the mountains of
hard evidence.

Of course, the current group of white collar criminals in the White
House might not care that we’re finding out the detail! s of their next
phase. Because, after all, when smallpox gets released, or more
buildings start blowing up, the President can stand up there at his
lectern suppressing a smirk, squeeze out a tear or two, and tell us that
"See I was right. I had to take away your rights to keep you safe. And
now it’s your fault that all of these children are dead." From that
point on, anyone who criticizes tyranny will be shouted down by the paid
talking head government mouthpieces in the mainstream media.

You have to admit, it’s a beautiful script. Unfortunately, it’s being
played out in the real world. If we don’t get the word out that
government is using terror to control our lives while doing nothing to
stop the terrorists, we will deserve what we get - tyranny. But our
children won’t deserve it. POLICE STATE LEGISLATION -- THE USA PATRIOT

REGARDING THIS QUOTE ABOVE: This is an amazing but true statement above that I can attest to. There is an amazing spiritual revival across Russian. I have friends that have gone there with Dannion Brinkley who have participated in spiritual conferences unlike anything they have seen in the US -- an unprecedented burst of freedom-loving spirituality that puts the American state of materialistic complacency and apathy to shame. Mark my words, the "writing is on the wall" for all who have eyes to see. This article nails it. America is about to reap the whirlwind of retribution for betrayal of all we once held sacred if the REAL patriots and silent majority don't find their voice while we still can. - CR "As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this.

Not Since Rise of Hitler Has a Western Nation Granted Such Dictatorial Rights to Leader By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers In perhaps one of the most shocking events since the rise to power of Nazi Germany’s Adolph Hitler, the United States Federal Court Judges have conferred upon the American President complete dictatorial powers to wage war and rule his Empire as he, and only he, sees fit. The facts of this US Federal Court Ruling we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service in their article titled "Federal court rules against ex-bin Laden driver" and which says: "A federal appeals court put the Bush administration’s military commissions for terrorist suspects back on track Friday, saying a detainee at the Guantanamo Bay prison who once was Osama bin Laden’s driver can stand trial. A three-judge panel ruled 3-0 against Salim Ahmed Hamdan, whose case was halted by a federal judge on grounds that commission procedures were unlawful. “Congress authorized the military commission that will try Hamdan,” said the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. "The protections of the 1949 Geneva Convention do not apply to al-Qaida and its members, so Hamdan does not have a right to enforce its provisions in court, the appeals judges said. U.S. District Judge James Robertson ruled last year that Hamdan could not be tried by a military commission until a competent tribunal determined that he was not a prisoner of war. “We believe the military commission is such a tribunal,” said the appeals court. President Bush created the military commissions after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, opening a legal channel for alleged al-Qaida terrorists and their associates to be tried for war crimes. Hamdan’s lawyers said Bush violated the separation of powers in the Constitution when he established military commissions. The court disagreed, saying Bush relied on Congress’s joint resolution authorizing the use of force after the Sept. 11 attacks, as well as two congressionally enacted laws. “We think it no answer to say, as Hamdan does, that this case is different because Congress did not formally declare war,” said the decision by appeals court judge A. Raymond Randolph. "Congress authorized the president to use all necessary and appropriate force in the war on terrorism." Two lawyers representing Hamdan, Neal Katyal and Navy Lt. Commander Charles D. Swift, said the appeals court ruling “is contrary to 200 years of constitutional law.” Katyal said Hamdan will seek further appeals. “Today’s ruling places absolute trust in the president, unchecked by the Constitution, statutes of Congress, and longstanding treaties ratified by the Senate of the United States,” the two defense lawyers said in a statement. Also repeating history is the fact that the only institution in the United States that have fought against these new dictatorial powers has been the United States Military, and who like their German counterpart! s during the rise of Hitler have also attempted to keep an American Dictatorship from forming. As the American Navy Lt. Commander Charles D. Swift has been quoted by the Associated Press, “[This ruling] is contrary to 200 years of constitutional law. Today’s ruling places absolute trust in the president, unchecked by the Constitution, statutes of Congress, and longstanding treaties ratified by the Senate of the United States.” It has also not been lost upon current historians the remarkable similarities between the rise of the American Empire and the Nazi Empire of last century, and as exampled by the American writer Doris Colmes who in surviving the barbarities of life under the Nazi’s is now seeing a repeat of history, and as we can read in her commentary titled “Enabling the Patriot Act" and which says: "At the end of the school year of June, 1938, my parents received a polite, but firm letter from Dr. Gregor Ziemer, headmaster of "The American School of Berlin," stating that Jewish children were no longer
permitted to attend. It was the only school I’d ever known, from
kindergarten up through fifth grade, and I loved it. My older sisters
liked it, too, because – amongst other things – there were a lot of cute
American boys in attendance and everybody spoke English. It wasn’t just
American School, though: Jewish kids were no longer allowed into any
schools whatsoever.


This rejection was based on an edict formulated by the German "Enabling
Act" of 1933, which gave the Nazi government incalculable powers over
individuals, groups, and targeted population components. As a matter of
fact, the German "Enabling Act" of 1933 is remarkably similar to our
current Patriot Act, which – according to an Associated Press release to
the Portland Oregonian of June 4, 2005 – is currently up for revisions
not only giving it expanded powers well beyond those it already has, but
making it permanent, just like the German Enabling Act was made
permanent. (The more one compares the Nazi Germany "Enabling Act" with
the U.S.A. "Patriot Act," the more they appear to be Siamese twins.)"


Even to the creation of an Elite Military Unit modeled upon the dreaded
Nazi Gestapo has the American President accomplished, and as we can read
as reported by the American Resistance writer Mike Whitney in his
article titled "Genesis of an American Gestapo" and wherein he says:
"Tyranny has very few indispensable parts; a compliant media, that will
regulate information to meet the goals of the state; a “rubber-stamp”
Parliament that will endorse the policies of the supreme leader; a
judiciary that will adjust the law to serve the requirements of the
ruling body, a strong military to seize the wealth of weaker nations;
and a security apparatus, that will eliminate any domestic threats to
the system. On June 29 President Bush took the great-leap forward in
transforming the nation’s intelligence services by ordering a
restructuring of the FBI and putting “a broad swath of the agency” under
the direct control of the executive.


Bingo; Bush’s personal secret police; an American Gestapo. The formation
of the new agency was presented as part of 74 recommendations made by
the 9-11 Commission on Intelligence. Every member of the so-called
“independent” panel was hand-picked by the Bush team and their proposals
reflect the narrow interests of American elites. Bush loyalists and
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) members Lawrence Silberman and
Charles Robb, (both of whom were directly involved in the 9-11
whitewash) chaired the committee, and provided the rationale for the
dramatic changes to the existing system. Astonishingly, Bush was able to
unilaterally create the National Security Service without congressional
approval as part of his sweeping powers under the new anti-terror
legislation.


The freshly minted National Security Service, which has been dubbed the
New SS, will operate under the authority of former ambassador to Iraq,
John Negroponte, whose involvement in overseeing the terrorist
activities of death squads in Nicaragua will provide him with the
necessary experience for his new task. Negroponte, the new Intelligence
czar, will report directly to the President, who in turn will carefully
monitor the violations of civil liberties that will naturally evolve
from unsupervised investigations. The formation of the Bush Gestapo
overturns long held precedents for maintaining the independence of law
enforcement agencies."


To the warnings about these shocking events the American citizens
themselves have received many, and as we can see exampled from a speech
given to the United States Congress by one of their own Leaders,
Congressman Ron Paul, and who on June 27, 2002, and seeing the dangers
his country was facing, said;

"Mr. Speaker, what, then, is the answer to the question: "Is America a
Police State?" My answer is: "Maybe not yet, but it is fast
approaching." The seeds have been sown and many of our basic protections
against tyranny have been and are constantly being undermi! ned. The
post-9/11 atmosphere here in Congress has provided ample excuse to
concentrate on safety at the expense of liberty, failing to recognize
that we cannot have one without the other.

When the government keeps detailed records on every move we make and we
either need advance permission for everything we do or are penalized for
not knowing what the rules are, America will be declared a police state.
Personal privacy for law-abiding citizens will be a thing of the past.
Enforcement of laws against economic and political crimes will exceed
that of violent crimes (just look at what's coming under the new FEC
law). War will be the prerogative of the administration. Civil liberties
will be suspended for suspects, and their prosecution will not be
carried out by an independent judiciary. In a police state, this becomes
common practice rathe! r than a rare incident.

Some argue that we already live in a police state, and Congress doesn't
have the foggiest notion of what they're dealing with. So forget it and
use your energy for your own survival. Some advise that the momentum
towards the monolithic state cannot be reversed. Possibly that's true,
but I'm optimistic that if we do the right thing and do not capitulate
to popular fancy and the incessant war propaganda, the onslaught of
statism can be reversed.

To do so, we as a people will once again have to dedicate ourselves to
establishing the proper role a government plays in a free society. That
does not involve the redistribution of wealth through force. It does not
mean that gover! nment dictates the moral and religious standards of the
people. It does not allow us to police the world by involving ourselves
in every conflict as if it's our responsibility to manage a world
American empire.

But it does mean government has a proper role in guaranteeing free
markets, protecting voluntary and religious choices and guaranteeing
private property ownership, while punishing those who violate these
rules- whether foreign or domestic. In a free society, the government's
job is simply to protect liberty- the people do the rest. Let's not give
up on a grand experiment that has provided so much for so many. Let's
reject the police state."

Just two years later this same American Congressman Ron Paul tried to
warn his American Citizens again, and as we can read in his article
titled “Police State USA” and where again he said;

"Every generation must resist the temptation to believe that it lives in
the most dangerous time in American history. The threat of Islamic
terrorism is real, but it is not the greatest danger ever faced by our
nation. This is not to dismiss the threat of terrorism, but rather to
put it in perspective. Those who seek to whip the nation into a frenzy
of fear do a disservice to a country that expelled the British, fought
two world wars, and stared down the Soviet empire.

Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. Wh! en we
accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches,
mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets,
we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of
protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies
neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long."

Where a little over a decade ago many we newly released from the Gulag
celebrated our freedom, and which was won by the millions of former
Soviet citizens who threw off the shackles of tyrannical communist rule,
we could have never imagined that these shackles would be then taken by
the American peoples to put upon themselves. We could have never
imagined that where in Russia today every school child is given a Bible,
in America today their school children are threatened with prison if
they so much as even mention the Bible, God or Jesus.

In all of these strange and horrible events, perhaps the on! e warning
these Americans should have heeded most of all was made by their own
President Bush who in December, 2000 was quoted by the Associated Press
as saying, "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot
easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

Read George Washington's 3rd Great Peril Vision at
www.heartcom.org/3rdperil.htm and realize that the wolves in sheep's clothing are setting it up. Heaven watches to see if enough good people warrant divine intercession. So BE and DO what the poor in Spirit are not able or willing to BE and DO. The few hold the balance for the many. One in God is a majority - the heart of true religion that is the heart of ALL religion. Keep the Faith that divine intent for the victory of LOVE will prevail SOONER rat! her than later. By God's grace -- the holy Spirit of LOVE-in-action -- divine order will supercede the dark agenda of evil intent of those whose time is short and wrath is great. It's a dangerous time. Take it seriously. --- Christos ~~~~~~~~~ "In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." - Martin Niemoeller, the Lutheran minister who lived in Hitler's Germany during the 1930s and 1940s
