Bible Believers' Newsletter 388
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your fellowship.
Please welcome Sister Joan Veon with another contribution for our Church Newsletter. Joan is a financial planner and an investigative journalist, who over the past decade has covered 64 Globalist meetings including last month's G8 Summit at Gleneagles in Scotland.
This article will enlighten our African Brethren as it shows how the 'Empire of the City,' in the guise of a 'British' Empire (now Commonwealth of Nations), that once exerted imperial power by a taxpayer-funded military force and chattel slavery, but today controls its vast estate by usury, wage and tax slavery, treaties and agreements under international law with Gentile names and faces still 'fronting' this old Jewish dynasty as discussed in Newsletter 383.
Joan discloses how individual poverty has been created since decolonization and formerly prosperous colonies transformed into wretchedly indebted sovereign states as per plan. 'The City' maintains control whilst the newly 'independent' states now meet administrative responsibilities and costs. By means of legal and financial instruments 'the City' has a headlock on indigenous economic development, assured access to cheap labor, vast mineral resources, and has advanced its plans for world depopulation and world government.
Citing "National Decision Memorandum 76," Joan explains how Wall Street, the Administration and the American Taxpayer are at the forefront of neo-imperialism. This document represents the first time an American president described the growth of population in the Third World as a possible threat to US interests. It was prepared by a NSC committee under the supervision of Henry Kissinger, then Secretary of State and president of the NSC. This 198-page report was published on December 10, 1974. On October 16, 1975, Kissinger sent a confidential memo to President Gerald Ford, asking for authorization to make "NSSM 200Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for US Security and Overseas Interests" operative to all officials of the US government. President Ford approved Kissinger's request on November 26, 1975.
NSSM 200 is a blueprint for population control whereby local government agencies instituting "family planning programs" in conjunction with economic incentives would encourage the use of contraceptives and provide clinical assistance in cases of abortion and sterilization.
Now we know the political motive behind Feminism and Women's Liberation which demanded the "pill," "abortion on demand," etc. These movements were a psyop against women and not what these "silly women laden with diverse lusts" believed them to be. The Serpent has deceived them into yet another program of eugenics and genocide of Adam's race as he did in the Garden of Eden in order to facilitate and hasten Satan's totalitarian Eden.
Directly via the Agency for International Development and other government departments, and indirectly through the Rockefeller and other tax-exempt foundations, US taxpayers have funded this program of eugenics and genocide. The United Nations Fund for Population (UNFP) operates over 2,000 birth control programs throughout the world, financed primarily by the United States.
The effect of these measures world-wide is to skew population patterns toward an older age group, increasing the dependency of the Third World. According to biologist Dr. Frank Felice at the University of San Francisco, "7,438,152,268,800 square feet in Texas divided by world population of 5,860,000,000 = 1,269 square feet per person" (The World Almanac and Book of Facts 1993, New York, Pharos Books, p. 643; The 1994 World Population Data Sheet, Washington, DC: Population Reference Bureau; Professor Jacqueline Kasun, The War on Population: The Economics and Ideology of Population Control, Ignatius Press, 1999). This is not such a small world, after all (Genesis 1:28).
Finally Sister Joan observes, the larger the loan the poorer the country, and she discloses that debt forgiveness by the G8, rather than bailing-out the poor countries is bailing-out the international banksters using your tax dollars. So before the US dollar implodes, those banks will have exchanged your worthless fiat money for utilities, resources and other hard assets of nation states like yours, entrenching us all in servitude.
The Adversary and his children were defeated at Calvary. God is using this worldwide insanity to separate us from the world, from the flesh, from our old worldly ways of thinking, and from traditions. God's Word calls for a total separation from unbelief. He cannot bless us while we have one foot on the Word and the one foot in the world. For there's a Place prepared where the saints abide, just over in the Glory Land; there to be forever by my Savior's side, just over in the Glory Land . . .

British Cops trained in Israel
The cold blooded murder of Jean Charles de Menezes, in the Stockwell underground was no accident. London Metropolitan Police had approved a policy of "shoot to kill":
The shoot to kill policy was undertaken under the auspices of "Operation Kratos," named after the mythical Spartan hero. It was carried out by the London Metropolitan's elite SO19 firearms unit often referred to as the Blue Berets. The latter are described as the equivalent to the US SWAT teams, yet in this particular case, they were not wearing uniforms. The training of the S019 marksmen was patterned on that of Israel.

Comment: Both books of Maccabees link the Spartans with the Jews. I Maccabees 12 tells of Jonathan sending a letter to the Lacedemonians (Spartan Greeks) asking help since they were brethren. The Spartans replied, "It is found in writing, that the Lacedemonians and Jews are brethren and that they are of the stock of Abraham" (verse 21). It's assumed by some writers that this means the Spartans were Israelites, but Spartans were not Israelites they were Edomites, descended from Bela son of Beor and the brother of Balaam, and king of Edom (Genesis 36:32; I Chronicles 1:43). Edom is the son of Isaac and grandson of Abraham who sold his birthright, and bred his posterity off the Book of Life. The Danus mentioned in this chapter is assumed by many to be of the tribe of Dan, but he was not, he was son of Bela (Fasti Hellenici, Vol. 1, p. 101, Henry Clinton).

Larouche warns: Cheney's Guns of August threaten the World
July 27, 2005 Lyndon LaRouche issued an international alert, covering the period of August 2005, which is the likely timeframe for Vice President Dick Cheney, with the full collusion of the circles of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, to unleash the recently exposed plans to stage a preemptive tactical nuclear strike against Iran. The danger of such a mad, Hitler-in-the-bunker action from the Cheney circles would be even further heightened, were the United States Congress to stick with its present schedule, and go into recess on July 30 until September 4. With Congress out of Washington, the Cheney-led White House would almost certainly unleash a "Guns of August" attack on Iran.
LaRouche based this assessment on a series of factors, reported to him over the recent days, beginning with the qualified report, from a former US intelligence official, published in the American Conservative magazine, that Dick Cheney ordered the Strategic Command (STRATCOM) to prepare contingency plans for a conventional and tactical nuclear strike against hundreds of targets in Iran, in the event of a "new 9/11-style attack" on the US. As EIR reported several months ago, the Bush Administration under CONPLAN 8022, had already placed the relevant "mini-nukes" under the control of theater military commanders, as part of a new Global Strike doctrine, a doctrine originally conceived when Dick Cheney was Secretary of Defense under George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s. Full story: larouchepac.com
Terrorists plan to attack Australia, Israelis warn
ISRAELI intelligence agents surfing the internet have warned that terrorists are planning a future attack on Australia . . . Dr. Mark Craig, a graduate of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation national academy and specialist in terrorism and organised crime, was the sole Australian at the Istanbul meeting. He told the AJN this week that it was there he learned that Israeli agents were monitoring the internet and listening to terrorists speaking on Arab-language chat rooms. Full story: ajn.com.au
Comment: "Psst! Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge."
That is not "intelligence" but propaganda for dummies. Israel's advance knowledge, as with 9/11 and London's 7/7, is not from Arab-language sources. There doubtless will be an attack, but not by Muslims, to prime mums and dads with hatred if World War III is to reach the 'hot' stage before the US dollar fails.
Jimmy Carter: Guantanamo 'is a Disgrace to the USA'
Former US President Jimmy Carter on Saturday blasted the US detention center in Cuba, saying that Guantanamo Bay Naval base was an embarrassment to the United States.
Carter was speaking at the Baptist World Alliance's centenary conference in Birmingham, central England, where he also criticized the current American President's decision to invade Iraq, describing the war as "unnecessary and unjust."
"I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the USA," he told a news conference, adding that it was "the cause of terrorism." But the former President, who won the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize for his peace efforts, added that while Guantanamo "may be an aggravating factor . . . it's not the basis of terrorism." "What has happened at Guantanamo Bay . . . does not represent the will of the American people," Carter said. "I'm embarrassed about it."
"I thought then, and I think now, that the invasion of Iraq was unnecessary and unjust. And I think the premises on which it was launched were false," he said Saturday. Critics of the present US government have repeatedly accused it of unjustly detaining suspects, mostly Muslims and Arabs, at the Guantanamo detention center. Nearly 500 men, detained in Bush's "war on terror", have been held in prison indefinitely without charge or access to lawyers. Full story: islamonline.com
Approximately eighty thousand attended the recent Billy Graham Crusade in New York City. Dr. Graham was greeted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Hillary as the next President of the United States saying, "The Clintons are wonderful friends and a great couple. Mr. Clinton should become an evangelist and allow his wife to run the country." Whereas both are abortion advocates and encourage the homosexual and lesbian movement worldwide.
Appearing with Billy Graham was "Bible Man" Robert Schlipp. Dressed in spandex with Star Wars type armor, a saber of light and a grotesque horned mask, he presents himself as a Kung Fu master, and as one newspaper reported, comes to "quote the Bible and kick butt." Full story: topangaonline.com
Earthquakes in Diverse Places
Over a hundred tremors shook Java on July 12, and on June 15, a 7.9 quake hit Chile and destroyed or damaged 9,235 homes. In the United States, the University of Memphis has reported that pressure is rapidly building in the Reelfoot Fault area in the midsection of the country at a rate comparable to that of the San Andreas Fault. Only a few weeks ago California experienced six offshore earthquakes, one of which triggered the tsunami warning sirens.
Japan is investigating a mysterious column of water that shot 3,300 feet into the sky from the Pacific Ocean near Iwo Jima on July 4, most likely caused by an undersea volcano.
The 1994 World Book Encyclopedia said there are about forty moderate earthquakes per year. The Iris Seismographic Report of the USGS recorded over 300 moderate earthquakes in just one month, from June 14 to July 13, 2005. Earth is in travail like a woman with child, and it will not be long before Los Angeles sinks. Full story: lasttrumpetministries.org
Three Prophetic Trees
Three trees on a hill were discussing their hopes and dreams. The first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems, and decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see my beauty."
The second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I shall carry kings and queens across the waters and sail to the four corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."
The third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the Hill, look up to my branches and think of heaven, of God, and how close to them I am. I will be the greatest tree of all time; people will always remember me."
After some years praying for their dreams, three axmen came upon them. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks a clear grained tree, I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter," And as he cut the tree was happy, because by faith he believed the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.
At the second tree the woodsman said, "This looks a strong tree, I should be able to sell this to a shipyard." So the second tree was happy for he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.
When the axmen came upon the third tree, it was fearful because it felt that if it was felled its dreams would not come true. The third woodsman said, "I don't need anything special from my tree, I'll take this one," and he cut it down.
The carpenters made the first tree into a feed box for animals. He was placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was hardly what he had prayed for.
The second tree was made into a small fishing boat and its dream of becoming a mighty ship carrying kings had come to an end.
The third tree was cut into two large pieces and left alone in the dark.
The years passed and the trees forgot about their dreams.
Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew it was cradling the greatest Treasure of all time.
Years later several men set sail in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One being weary fell asleep. On the sea, a great storm arose and the tree feared lest it might not be strong enough to keep them safe. They woke the sleeping Man Who said to the sea, "Peace, be still." The wind ceased and there was a great calm; at instant the tree knew that this Passenger was the King of kings.
Finally a Man took the third tree, and as He was carried it through the streets, people mocked and spat upon Him. At the top of a hill they nailed Him to the tree and raised it high in the air where He died. He was buried but when He rose again on Sunday morning, the tree realized it was indeed the greatest of all trees and as close to God as it was possible to be, because Jesus Messiah had been crucified on its boughs.
If you prayerfully dedicate your life to God, He will give you the desire of your heart as He did for those trees. Perhaps not quite as you expect, but "all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose".
In this essay from his wonderful new book, "Our Lady of Sorrows," Brother Israel Shamir tells of an American Jew who complained to God: "I have sent my son to Jerusalem, and he became a Christian!""It happened to Me as well," replied God.
This joke can still become true, as the 'Jews' of Israel are looking for their Spiritual meaning. They can't find it without the Messiah. Contact: Israel Shamir
What about Africa?
By Joan Veon
The focus for the last seven years, since the last G8 in England, has been aid for Africa. In 1998, the churches organized the Jubilee Debt Relief Campaign. The terminology used was to remind world leaders of the Biblical Year of Jubilee recorded in the Old Testament where debts were forgiven. I remember going to a non-governmental organization (NGO) workshop where I interviewed a key leader about global taxation. I asked him what they were going to do with the huge flows possible from the global tax. He told me that there would be enough for both Africa and the United Nations! Seven years later, both debt forgiveness and the concept of global taxation have come full circle. This is it. This is where the rubber meets the road.Homework: Please review the six-part series, World Depopulation and Slavery.
Over the last ten years, the idea of global tax has gone through a number of revisions. Last year French President Jacques Chirac put the idea of global tax on the leader's agenda and promised concrete recommendations. His proposed "International Solidarity Levy" would levy a tax on airline tickets. Countries in favor include Brazil, China, and Germany. Currently there are no international treaties that prohibit the creation of a flat tax on airline tickets since a number of airlines already have various types of taxes on airline tickets for airport renovation and the like. The rate would be personalized according to country acceptance. Revenues would be collected by the airlines and passed on to the respective country which would supplement their foreign aid funds.
Before the world commits to the French plan which has been laid on the table and is in the process of being proposed now to the leaders of the entire world at the September United Nations General Assembly, there are a number of questions that should be asked, "How come Africa had no problems while they were colonies of Britain?" and "Why has Africa been the focus of wars and revolutions since de-colonization?" Complex questions have complex answers. For people seeking truth, we will take a look at the Commonwealth, World Bank loans, NSSM 200, the conditions being put on Africa, and global taxation.
First, let us take a look at what the Commonwealth of Nations is all about. According to the Internet encyclopedia, Wikipedia, "The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of independent sovereign states, mostly formed by the United Kingdom and its former colonies." Today there are counties that acknowledge the British monarch as head of state and those that only recognize the queen as Head of the Commonwealth.
The old British Empire, we are told, was dismantled after World War II beginning with India. When de-colonized, many countries became republics. The London Declaration, which provided for members to accept the British monarch as Head of the Commonwealth regardless of their domestic constitutional arrangements, is now considered by many to be the start of the modern Commonwealth.
The population of the Commonwealth is about 1.8 billion people which comprise about 30% of the world's population. India is the most populous member with a billion people while Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nigeria have more than 100 million people. The land of Commonwealth nations equals about twenty-five percent of the world's land area.
When the UN was formed in 1945, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK had three votes. As Britain de-colonized countries, they were made voting members of the United Nations. Between 1946-1989, a total of 42 countries were de-colonized, thus giving the Commonwealth the potential of 54 votes which includes those countries that were already independent.
Apart from the votes which the Commonwealth has at the United Nations and at other international organizations, it is important to understand that the war, genocide, and the problems of poverty did not exist in Africa before de-colonization. Interestingly enough, of the twenty countries de-colonized between 1960-1969, seven are today Highly Indebted Poor Countries. They include Ghana which is rich in gold, bauxite, manganese and diamonds; Guyana which is rich in bauxite, manganese, gold and diamonds; Uganda which is rich in copper and cobalt, Tanzania which is rich in gold, diamonds and coal and Zambia which is rich in copper.
So why are they having trouble in today's globalized world? We can go back to World Bank loans during the 1970s which were forced on a number of African countries. Under World Bank President Robert McNamara, who served as president from 1969 to 1981, World Bank economists forced their way into countries in order to come up with a financial plan for their new development. Even the president of that country was not privy to what the plan said, but was under the gun of the World Bank to take loans to carry out these grandiose projects. The idea was that the income generated from the project would provide moneys to repay the loans. Unfortunately that did not happen. These are the Highly Indebted Poor Countries which you and I are being asked to bail out through increased foreign aid, debt forgiveness, and/or international taxation.
If this was not enough there is more devastation that the African continent was subjected to. Interestingly enough, it occurred AFTER de-colonization. In 1974, President Richard Nixon was presented with a study by the National Security Council which is called, "NSSM 200Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for US Security and Overseas Interests." This 250 page report was a result of a four year study which he had requested on August 10, 1970 in National Security Decision Memorandum 76. This memorandum recommended that the US propose a United Nations study of "world population problems and measures required to deal with them as a top priority in the Second Development Decade." When the study was completed in May, 1974, it was sent to Nixon along with a memo by Dr. Henry Kissinger, then National Security Advisor, in which he recommended the need for the US to provide leadership "in world population matters."
NSSM 200 suggested that the US needed "access to minerals which are necessary for military and industrial uses and for which the US must reply on imports. Where these 'strategic and critical' materials are concerned, therefore, US economic stakes in the developing world coincide with military considerations" (NSSM 200). Furthermore, it points out that if the resources found in a number of Lesser Developing Countries are important to the US and if those countries develop with a normal increase in population, they will have a greater need for their resources, which means the US will not have access to them. In other words, it was to the advantage of the US to keep these countries from developing so the US could have access to them.
The report identified using foreign aid funds as a way of "helping" the leaders of targeted countries to embrace population reduction. The report placed the agenda of population reduction on the shoulders of the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, and a number of UN agencies and commissions.
The United Nations did exactly what the US government told them to do. They made population reduction a key focus of their agenda through Agenda 21 and sustainable development. At the UN Conference on Population and Development in 1994 in Cairo, African women asked representatives from Planned Parenthood International why they could only get condoms and not aspirins at their health clinics.
According to the British publication, New Statesman, more than $400B of overseas aid, channeled through African governments, the African people are on the whole poorer than they were 30 years ago.
So how much does Africa owe the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund? According to John Hilary from War on Want, about $532B is owed by the 60 highly indebted poor countries. Currently only 18 countries have qualified for debt forgiveness because they have met the conditions World Bank conditions. The amount of debt forgiveness is $40B but the debt servicing of the remaining $492B is $45B a year.
The World Bank's program for Highly Indebted Poor CountriesHIPC is funded by pledges and paid-in contributions. Steps poor countries have to take to qualify for a reduction in debt include: changing their structure of government to be "more accountable", make all financial figures public (transparency), privatize their energy sector, water, electricity, etc. and work through regional blocks with other cities and states (this is regional government which is appointed, not elected officials).
Today what you see is the plea for business to come in and partner with African governments. The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum has called for "ten practical actions to support Africa's development." One of them is, "Work with other businesses in partnership with civil society organizations to support, social, health, human development and enterprise development."
At every turn, it is public-private partnership, selling off government owned resources, or privatizing through partnering with business. This is seen in President Clinton's New Partnership for African DevelopmentNEPAD. President Bush has set up his own initiative, the Millennium Challenge CorporationMCC, a US government corporation, to administer funds. An informational brochure handed out described it as "an innovative new foreign assistance program designed to eliminate extreme poverty and promote sustainable economic growth." The purpose is to set up public-private partnershipsPPP. PPP's are business arrangements for governments to transfer state-owned assets to. Since it is a business arrangement, it is run by the corporate partner. As expected, there are steps that countries need to take in order to be eligible, just like the World Bank qualifications. For example, the MCC Board approved a Compact with Cape Verde for approximately $110M. The Compact will support their efforts in achieving its overall national development goal of transforming its economy from aid-dependence to sustainable, private-sector led growth."
At the 2002 UN World Summit on Sustainable Development, an international public-private partnership, "The Congo Basin Forest Partnership," was announced. It has eight African countries, six of the G8 countries, the American Forest and Paper Association, and four major environmental organizations including World Wildlife Federation as partners. Seventy-four million acres of land in Africa will be moved into this partnership! In an interview with a US State Department official by colleague Joan Peros, he refused to comment on any debt-for-nature swaps!
The question that should be asked is "What will these countries have left once they privatize their state owned assets and change their form of government to meet a global structure of government?
In an interview with an African official from an African consumers group, he voiced the same concerns. They have made it very clear to G8 leaders that they do not want any more aid with strings and privations.
On the other hand, as reported by the British magazine, New Statesman, many African countries are turning to China for help. Nearly 700 Chinese companies operate in 49 African countries. Chinese trade with Africa will reach $30B next yeartriple the level five years ago. By the end of 2005, according to the French paper, LeMonde, China will overtake Britain as Africa's third-largest trading partner and it is increasingly turning to Africa as a source for oil, timber, and minerals for support for its phenomenal growth.
The Sierra Leone tourism board and the Chinese construction company Henan Gouji recently signed a $220M agreement for a luxury golf course and five star hotel. Their tourism minister said, "Why should we wait for Britain or anyone else to get here? The Chinese are the ones coming to invest now."
Last year, China's export bank extended a $2B line of credit to the Angolan government for infrastructure projects. In return for low interest rates and a long repayment schedule, Angola will provide China with 10,000 barrels of oil a day and award China with large construction contracts. In Sudan where the US maintains partial oil sanctions, China has become that country's largest trading partner. The list goes on.
Is this a case of creating a major continental-wide problem and then solving it to get the intended result which is a grand transfer of wealth?
In conclusion, it is not only the assets of Africa which are at stake, but the whole transfer of wealth through our tax-dollars to support the "war on poverty." In an interview with French President Jacques Chirac, I asked if the proposed "International Solidarity Levy" is going to be duplicated once it is in place. He told me there are many different proposals for global tax. I would assume that if the airline tax is passed without great opposition, that it will open "Pandora's Box" to a countless number of other international taxes. Without Africa, global taxation would not be possible. So, what about Africa? nl388.htm
