Bible Believers' Newsletter 401
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please welcome Sister Joan Veon with a further contribution to our fellowship. Matthew 4:8-9 is being fulfilled through the United Nations Organization by the apostasy of (once) Christian nations and treacherous world leaders whose god is mammon. Joan explains how the UN is conjuring a new world order out of the chaos of induced earthquakes, volcanoes, forest fires, hurricanes, tidal waves and wars of purpose and profit. Her first-hand research on the United Nations and its agenda puts Joan in touch with officials and delegates at conferences around the world.
Author of "The United Nations' Global Straitjacket," and "Prince Charles: the Sustainable Prince," Joan may be contacted through The Women's International Media Group website where you will find the unabridged version of her paper.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Leap of Faith
In an open letter published in major Australian newspapers, the nation's leading researchers and science educators have joined forces for the first time to express their concern that intelligent design might be taught in any school as a scientific alternative to evolution.
"Proponents of ID assert that some living structures are so complex that they are explicable only by the agency of an imagined and unspecified "intelligent designer". . . not being able to imagine or explain how something happened other than by making a leap of faith to supernatural intervention is no basis for any science: that is a theological or philosophical notion."

Comment: A subscriber writes, Now here's the deal: Those folks believe that the universe simply sprang into existence on its own out of nothing and then proceeded to configure itself in such a way as to become aware of itself (i.e., produced sentient beings, us). Then they speak negatively about Christians taking a "leap of faith." PLEASE!!!
Religious Hatred Bill thrown out by Peers
October 26, 2005 Peers have inflicted a heavy defeat on government plans to create a new offence of inciting religious hatred . . . They voted by more than two to one to back opposition to attempts to redraw the plans, amid claims that it was a bad law that would stifle freedom of speech. . . Full story: news.independent.co.uk
Parts of David's Tomb to be under Papal Control
October 20, 2005 An official Vatican newspaper has reported that during his upcoming visit to the Vatican, President Moshe Katsav will sign an agreement giving parts of David's Tomb over to papal control. If such an agreement is signed, it will put an end to drawn out negotiations that began in 1998. . . Full story: israelnn.com
Advancing World Government
Global Interconnectedness through Natural Disasters
By Joan M. Veon
It used to be that a country was taken over by the strongest general or warlord, but in the age of high technology and weather modification, natural disasters are equivalent to war and do the same thing. They are an economic stimulus and transfer wealth from the common man to the unscrupulous. Today our sovereignty needs to be defended from economic and natural disasters on the national level but also against economic and unnatural disasters from the international level where the United Nations operates.
America has been the strongest country in the world but as we begin the third millennium, it is apparent that we have been greatly weakened economically through dependence on $2B in foreign investments which funds our daily federal deficit and from our dependence on foreign oil. Because of our financial shortfall, segments of government are being sold through public-private partnerships while rising energy costs will substantially raise the cost of living.
There are those who say that Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Rita are God's judgment on a modern Sodom and Gomorrah. This paper is written from the viewpoint that it was planned to further global interconnectedness. Moreover, it was the Vietnam War that prompted our government to find ways to modify the weather to help our troops fight in unfamiliar terrain. In the 1970s, along with Britain, we perfected "Tsunami Bombs" using the top secret South Seas base, Diego Garcia. Is God reaching down from heaven to remind us of eternal truths or are unscrupulous men manipulating nature for their own greedy ends? This paper is written for you to decide.
Over the last eleven years while covering high level global conferences, I have observed how many financial, political, and natural disasters occur before a particular meeting or around the unveiling of a new global report that helps to "set precedents" for major policy changes on the global level. I write from the understanding gained as a result of reading thousands of pages of global documents, attending key meetings, and interviewing many, many individuals in positions of knowledge and power.
Proud and powerful America is facing a multitude of problems in a changing world. Up until the last ten years, America had her finger on secure and unlimited supplies of imported oil. However all has changed with the rise of China and India. As a result of growing federal and trade deficits, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has continually warned us of our folly. The Bank for International Settlements, the central bankster's bank, and Mr. Greenspan have been warning for the last two years about the housing bubble and America's growing deficits. Are these things related?
From a global perspective, all barriers between countries are down and the world is moving quickly towards a global currency and global tax. Even so, the world still is not acting as one. The final interconnectedness between the world's inhabitants has not yet happened. But through man-made natural disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the earthquake in Pakistan and mudslides in Guatemala, the people are uniting in sympathy and compassion expressed in the outpouring of gifts we have seen. According to world hurricane expert, Dr. William Gray, Katrina was, "An unusual storm and one of the worst storms" in our country's history. Because there is an evolutionary process at work in the world today, what we are seeing is a changing world which demands changing structures.
Growing Need for Energy
No longer is China Napoleon's "sleeping giant," the unprecedented rise in China's economic power over the few years means she needs to find jobs for over 200 million people. American corporations, forced out of their own country as a result of US regulations, have moved much of their manufacturing to China to escape our labor laws, unions, retirement provisions, and mandatory health benefits in preference to China's cheap labor. As such, China's growth has pushed up the price of all commodities - copper, aluminum, gold, coal and oilto new highs. Bill Ridley in his extensive report on energy quoted Gale Luft, executive director of the Institute of the Analysis of Global Security, "Without a comprehensive strategy designed to prevent China from becoming an oil consumer on par with the US, a superpower collision is on the cards." He wrote, "The final war for the planet's resources has already started. You name the commodity and China's buying it and consuming it in HUGE quantities. Last year  they consumed nearly half of the world's cement, twice the world's consumption of copper and nearly a third of the world's coal, 90% of the world's steel plus nearly every other commodity you can think of has been in greater demand in China" (www.321energy.com, article by Bill Ridley).
China is currently on a major buying spree for oil. In 2004, the Chinese government signed important investment and trade agreements with Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru, Jamaica, Mexico, and Venezuela. From Russia they are buying advanced military equipment and are thinking of lending Russia's State owned oil company, Rosneft, $6B in exchange for a long-term oil contract. In the Sudan, the Chinese National Petroleum Corporation holds the largest oil concession. Both China and India have been working together in the Sudan where China National Petroleum operates Sudan's Greater Nile oil field. Deals have also been made with Angola, Burma, Egypt, Indonesia, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Yemen (ibid).
Currently China consumes almost 7.2 million barrels a day, which is up from 4.8M bbl. in 2000. This is much less than the 20 million barrels a day that the US consumes. By 2010, they will need up to 9.2 million barrels. In January, 2005, China and Canada signed agreements to cooperate in the fields of minerals, metals and earth sciences. The two countries identified oil/gas, nuclear energy and cleaner energy as priority areas. In August, Chinese government-owned CNOOC, gave up its bid for California's Unocal. Instead the China National Petroleum Corporation purchased PetroKazakhstan in Asia. It is clear to see that energy has become the most important commodity on the face of the earth, next to water.
The Federal Reserve and Alan Greenspan
The week before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan gave a speech at the Jackson Hole Federal Reserve conference where he issued a few veiled warnings for the economy, investors, and homeowners. Greenspan said "asset values may seem permanent but warns that what investors see "as newly abundant liquidity can readily disappear." Greenspan stated that "The housing boom will inevitably simmer down." Housing prices are on the average up over the past five years by 50%.
Greenspan explained that the Fed now looks at changes in the balance sheet and "policy is becoming increasingly driven by asset price changes." The Federal Reserve Chairman also pointed to broad economic forces which are "continuously at work, shaping the environment in which the Federal Reserve makes monetary policy." He noted globalization and innovation spurred by competition which has nurtured the "continual scrapping of old technologies to make way for the new." He talked about the resilience and flexibility of the US economy, weathering the October 19, 1987 decline which took 20% off the market value of US equities, the credit crunch of the early 1980s and the bursting of the stock market bubble in 2000, along with the economic fallout from September 11. He commended the US economy which has "weather[ed] reasonably well the steep rise in spot and futures prices for crude oil and natural gas". Was he prepping us for Katrina and Rita?
In short, if you want to slow the economy, raise the cost of living by raising the price of oil and commodities. Can you imagine the problem builders will have based on higher costs of building materials? What about the cost to build in the future? The Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the 11th time to 3¾% in September citing the strength of the economy to deal with the hurricanes. Since inflation is what they are concerned about, it all goes hand in hand.
Global Tax and Currency
During the 1990s, the world has witnessed the falling away of the final barriers that had separated the individual nation-states. Those barriers included the North America Free Trade AgreementNAFTA and the General Agreement on Trade and TariffsGATT, which became the World Trade Organization in 1994. The authority of the International Criminal Court to arrest alleged international criminals transcends national boundaries and was established in 1998. With the Attack on America the final barriersmilitary and intelligencewere torn down in 2001. Today our CIA today works closely with the intelligence agencies from Britain, Russia, France, Italy and many other countries.
Global currency and tax go hand in hand with falling barriers. The Annual Report presented at the 75th AGM of the Bank for International Settlements in June, 2005, discussed the need to establish a single international currency, or perhaps regional currency blocks such as the dollar, euro, and renimbi/yen. Currently regional currencies include the European Union's euro and America's dollar. China and Malaysia recently abandoned their dollar-linked currencies in favor of a basket of currencies, a possible precursor to a regional currency.
There are those who contend that the US went into Iraq because Saddam Hussein said he was going to trade oil in euros instead of dollars. The dollar has been the world reserve currency since the fall of the British pound earlier in the 20th century which means all commodities are traded in dollars. Therefore, if the oil industry, i.e. OPEC, decided to sell oil in euros, it would devastate for the US economy which relies on foreign monies to finance our massive budget deficit.
At the July 2005 Group of Eight meeting in Gleneagles, Scotland the G8 leaders approved the idea of a global tax on airline tickets presented by French President Jacques Chirac as a way of finding additional monies for the United Nations to meet the Millennium Development Goals which will cost $124B a year by 2015. At the recent 60th session of the UN, French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin announced that 66 countries have already signed on to the idea of a global tax with a number ready to put it into place. Furthermore he called for a meeting in 2006 to solidify the global tax.
At every turn, our government is accommodating a world governmental structure through the United Nations by giving it more power and position in world affairs. Thus, the world is being interconnected through the UN, through international treaties, and modifying national laws to accommodate globalization. The passage of the CAFTA bill and the energy bill in late August are two examples.
The Passage of CAFTA, Transportation, and Energy
CAFTA is an extension of the 1994 North American Free Trade AgreementNAFTA which erased the barriers between Canada, the US and Mexico. The Central American Free Trade AgreementCAFTA expands this regional form of government through Central America. With the passage of CAFTA, the Free Trade Areas of the Americas, which will encompass all 35 countries in the Western Hemisphere, is only a step away. Because of the opposition to CAFTA, President Bush made a special trip to Capitol Hill to twist arms through by granting over 6,000 pork barrel promises which were funded by the Transportation Bill.
The $286B Transportation Bill contains spending not only for highways, bridges and mass transit but pork barrel spending to appease Americans blind to the fact they will eventually lose American sovereignty and currency. Senator John McCain referred to the pork-barrel in the bill as "No Lobbyist Left Behind." Interestingly enough, this bill was passed just in time to help rebuild the Gulf States.
The Energy Bill meanwhile provides $85B in tax breaks and subsidies to encourage new nuclear plants, cleaner-burning coal facilities and production of more oil and natural gas, ethanol and electricity. It offers incentives to produce energy from alternatives like wind and other renewable sources. The Petroleum industry also received new incentives to drill in the Gulf of Mexico while ethanol received a federal mandate to double its output by 2012. With regard to globalization and integration of the world economy, the Energy Bill repealed the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, allowing deregulation of the eastern seaboard electrical grid, which could transfer as much as $1T in utility assets into the global market.
What a coincidence that these bills came at just the "right time." Today, with our dependence on foreign oil and our inability to refine the amount we need, debt-ridden America finds itself at a crossroads. With no more barriers between the nation-states, an understanding of the role and position of the United Nations is needed.
The United Nations
My research over the last 11 years has concentrated on the structure of world government, global tax, global currency, sustainable development, and public-private partnership. Once you understand these, you will see a vast and complex agenda for radical change. It appears this change is being orchestrated by a diabolical force so powerful most cannot concede its presence.
While much of this paper was finished before the United Nations' 60th General Assembly in September 15-18. Its agenda fit America's natural disasters like "a hand in a glove." The 35-page document to which world leaders agreed before the Assembly, contains embellishments that will complete the integration of the world's nation-states.
That document added teeth to the power and structure of the United Nations. The reforms included: a new Peacebuilding Commission, a new Human Rights Council, the establishment of a UN Policing Unit to keep peace in countries emerging from war, global tax schemes, and an overall review of every UN commission, agency and organ.
There was great emphasis on the interconnectedness of all countries. The document reaffirmed "the universality, indivisibility, interdependence, and interrelatedness of all human rights." It reaffirmed "our commitment to the global partnership for development in the Millennium Declaration , the Monterrey Consensus , and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation ." In other words, these three documents complete the integration of all countries together as one.
The document agreed to a "contribution" instead of tax on airline tickets [as the UN is not a government they did not use the word "tax"], to raise money for the Millennium Development Goals agreed to five years ago, and increasing Overseas Development Assistance from 0.2% of GNP to 0.7%. For the US, the increase would raise our contribution to well over $255B a year from its current level of $16.2B including other monies. Furthermore, there was great emphasis on sustainable development and public-private partnerships.
Sustainable development was adopted at the 1992 Rio "Earth Summit" where environment became the focus of how the world should be ordered. Agenda 21 is a perversion of Genesis 1 where God gave man dominion over the earth. According to Agenda 21, earth now has dominion over man. As such, sustainable development maintains that the world has too many people and that you and I will "eat up and use up" the resources of the world. I personally heard Jacques Cousteau explain that in order to reduce world population, about 300,000 people would have to die daily. Others maintain that 6B of the 8B world population of 8B will have to be eliminated. If population reduction is the foundation of sustainable development, then war, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, plagues like HIV/AIDS, Avian bird flu, and natural disasters are ways to achieve it.
While the UN was given many other rights, its new focal point is to:
Support and complement international efforts aimed at addressing humanitarian emergencies, including natural disasters, in order to promote an improved, coordinated response from the United Nations.
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan opened the 60th session demanding the following of world leaders: "You WILL condemn terrorism, You WILL pledge to seek agreement, You WILL accept, You WILL agree, you WILL put in place . . ." George Bush put the UN at the center of humanitarian relief.
Lastly, in 2000, the United Nations opened a way for civil society and business to speak their minds in the General Assembly. Their representatives each spoke as if they were national leaders! And business held a two and a half-day plus parallel meeting, explaining their part in world affairs. At every turn the United Nations, as well as the work of Prince Charles, has transferred great political power to business through public-private partnerships.
THE EVOLVING ECONOMIC STRUCTURE
In order for us to fully understand the "beauty" of natural disasters and war, we must be aware of three very important economic concepts: "PacMan" Capitalism, Creative Destruction and the Permanent Revolution.
Pac Man Capitalism is my description for the goals and objectives of capitalism. As in the game of Pac Man, you must eat your enemy before your enemy eats you, so too, the goal of capitalism is to get the consumer constantly buying to maintain demand so that the economy does not slow down. It is business and cash flow that determines economic stability, based upon obsolescence, fashion, or new and innovative products, new markets and new buyers. In the last fifteen years, the fall of the Berlin Wall has opened up new markets in Russia and the Comecom countries, as well as China. And behind the Iraqi War are new markets: the Muslim countries! Capitalism cannot afford a slow down.
Economist Joseph Schumpeter in his work, Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy, coined the phrase, "Creative Destruction" in 1942 to denote a "process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one" (www.answers.com). He writes
The essential point to grasp is that in dealing with Capitalism, we are dealing with an evolutionary process . . . Capitalism, then, is by nature a form or method of economic change and not only never is but never can be stationary . . . this fact is important and these changes (war, revolutions and so on) often condition industrial change.
The idea comes from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche and from economist Werner Sombart. However, Schumpeter said he gained much of his understanding of competition and the essence of creative destruction from Karl Marx. The idea that "something new kills an old thing is seen in marketing. You always need a new widget and that is why the new item should be purchased. Consider what technology does to computers or new products to old products or new ways to old ways, etc., But also let us apply this to wars and natural disasters. In both, we have "creative destruction." Hence, there is the need to rebuild, which provides an advantage to those with money, and serves as an economic stimulus. Do hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and other natural disaster provide this opportunity? Yes. Does war? Yes.
The Permanent Revolution
Now, let's merge these two ideas. Geo-political expert Terry Hayfield defines "The Permanent Revolution":
A continual process of war, revolution, and terrorism [creative destruction], removing major impediments for the global establishment of a unique and unified America/British capitalism based on the political, economic and social precepts of Fabian Socialism. Free trade requires the complete destruction of national sovereignty and is a cornerstone of the Fabian Socialism. In the end, it is an international form of socialism that will control all the economic, political, and social activities of this planet. The United Nations and its many agencies are assisting in helping to establish this reality. Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism are all integral parts of the same process . . . The Permanent Revolution. (The hand of the Empire of the City of London Ed).
I am sure Mr. Hayfield would also include natural disaster in his definition of The Permanent Revolution. In other words, Pac Man Capitalism which means we need new products, markets, and consumers while Schumpeter says that creative destruction is good because it continues the economic cycle and the Permanent Revolution says continual war, revolution, and terrorism also spur the economy with the goal of creating Fabian Socialism, which is total control of the world economy.
It is into this economic and political situation, that Hurricane Katrina turned up. In a world where the barriers between the nation-states have been torn down, every problem is global, interconnectedness is being achieved. Therefore behind every global problem lies a new opportunity to integrate and further their agenda of world dominion. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita fit the goals and objectives of world government. News reporters were incredulous at the statistical probability of two major storms back to back, both of which affected America's oil refineries and the price of energy, increasing the cost of living worldwide.
The Gulf States
Enter the Gulf States, particularly Louisiana, New Orleans and all that they represent. The Gulf States account for 17% of the country's refining capacity and 25% of its daily crude output. Much of the oil imported from Saudi Arabia passes through Louisiana. The Mississippi and its river is about 40 miles wide and broadens in the south to form the fertile but low and swampy delta. Since the area around New Orleans is below sea level, the Mississippi, and other rivers are flanked by a system of levees.
From the refineries in New Orleans, two major pipelines, the 5,500 mile Colonial and the Plantation, run from the Gulf Coast to the Midwest and up the East Coast, providing fuel and gas to those areas. Based on logistics, the movement of agriculture and the refining of oil, New Orleans is America's Achilles' heel.
The State of Louisiana has a high welfare mentality and has adopted Vision 2020 to improve social, educational and economic conditions. To accomplish these goals Vision 2020 states, "Government should attend to infrastructure needs: education, public sector, research and development. In many cases, strong, effective public-private partnerships should be utilized to achieve economic development objectives."
The Port of New Orleans
The Louisiana Lower Mississippi River has a 14,500 mile inland waterway system. Because the Mississippi River and New Orleans intersect, it is a key waterway for the movement of agricultural products across America and overseas. The Mississippi River and its tributaries give Central American countries access to 62% of the US consumer spending.
The City of New Orleans' Levees
New Orleans is surrounded by 350 miles of levees built soon after the city was founded by the French in 1718. The crucial levee breech occurred at 17th street Canal. Historically marsh and wetlands provided a natural defense system for the levees. Each four miles of marsh would diminish a storm surge by one foot. Eventually, marsh land was being resumed at the rate of 25 square miles a year, or one football field every fifteen minutes (Serrano/Gaouette). The reclamation of 1,900 square miles of marsh land since the 1930s destroyed Louisiana's first line of defense against hurricanes (www.en.wikipedia.org).
The Financial Times reported in early 2001, "shortly after President Bush was inaugurated and before 9/11, FEMA warned of the three most devastating disasters that could strike the US: a terrorist attack on New York City, a hurricane flooding New Orleans and a San Francisco earthquake. The Bush administration was focused on its priority: Iraq" (Financial Times-FT, 9/6/05, 17). (How prescient Ed).
THE EFFECTS OF HURRICANE KATRINA
24-hours after the hurricane hit, New Orleans took on the look of Rwanda, Afghanistan, or Iraq. George Friedman, chairman of Strategic Forecasting Inc., said, "It seems almost as if a nuclear weapon went off in New Orleans. The displacement of the population is the crisis that New Orleans faces. It is also a national crisis, because the largest port in the US cannot function without a city around it. The physical and business processes of a port cannot occur in a ghost town and right now, that is what New Orleans is" (Washington Post-WP, 9/3/05, D1).
THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY FEMA
The re-assignment of FEMA Director Michael D. Brown to Washington and his subsequent resignation was a result of overall bad decisions. Perhaps we need to take a close look at what FEMA is. I find it fascinating that our government would allow such a key position to be filled by a novice. In short, was Mr. Brown a fall-guy for a hidden agenda?
What is FEMA?
FEMA is an independent agency reporting to the president, with the task of responding to, planning for, recovering from, and mitigating against disaster. Begun in 1803, FEMA has evolved in the last two hundred plus years. In 1979 President Carter issued an executive order that merged many separate disaster-related agencies into FEMA. FEMA works on the global level through the Global Emergency Management System. In 1996, a partnership between FEMA and the Ministry of Civil Defense, Emergencies and the Elimination of the Consequences of Natural Disaster (EMERCOM) of Russia began.
Because of the extensive powers FEMA has been given, they are called, "The Secret Government." It is not an elected body, it does not expose itself in public disclosures, and it has a quasi-secret budget in the billions of dollars. It has more power than the President or the Congress as it has authority to suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and hold them without trial, it can seize property, food supplies, transportation systems, and it can suspend the Constitution (Martin/Caul).
FEMA is spending 12 times more on "black operations" than on disaster relief. It spent $1.3B building secret bunkers throughout the US in anticipation of government disruption by foreign or domestic upheaval. Only members of Congress with top level security clearance will have access to these facilities for non-natural disaster operations (Martin/Caul).
Based on UN documents I have read and the fact that the US has a disaster preparedness plan that needs some help, one of the key focuses of the September United Nations Summit will be on greater coordination and interconnectedness in this regard. Furthermore, this fuels the public-private partnership mantra, opening the door to less representative government and more transfer of government assets and authority.
I wrote in Global Straitjacket, published in 2000, "Just think, with all the natural disasters, the world automatically needs to be integrated from the local police/fire/rescue/emergency to the global level which includes terrorism. Natural disaster preparedness provides a wonderful opportunity to integrate these agencies which could be considered an "international police force."
Has the Posse Comitatus Act been breached? The Posse Comitatus Act was passed in 1878 to remove the Army from civilian law enforcement and to return it to its role of defending the borders of the US. The Act does not apply to the National Guard or the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard was deployed to the region as well as Homeland Security via FEMA and other agencies. The Posse Comitatus is a law and can be circumvented with support from Congress according to Major Craig T. Trebilcock of the US Army Reserve. Over the past 25 years, Posse Comitatus has been undermined in several ways: (1) the Reagan Administration deployed the Navy and Air Force domestically in the War on Drugs, and (2), Congress passed the Civil Disturbance Statutes which permit the President to use military forces to restore order but only after a "state has requested assistance." The Stafford Act also permits the use of the military upon the request of a state governor and it permits the president to declare a major disaster and send in military forces on an emergency basis for up to ten days to preserve life and property. After 9/11, the Homeland Security Act gave new power to the president to pre-designate scheduled events of "Natural Interest" such as the Super Bowl and to post-designate in the wake of a terrorist attack or other "National Emergency" (National Debate).
New Orleans is now under military occupation. . . It appears President Bush is looking to repeal Posse Comitatus at every turn. Is America now to be defended by mercenaries and foreign troops?
Natural Disasters on the Rise
Interestingly enough, from AD 79 until 1950, there were 35 recorded earthquakes. From 1960 to the present, there were 36 earthquakes. From 1228 until 1959, there were 9 major floods, avalanches and tidal waves in the world. From 1962 until the present, there have been 28 major floods, avalanches, and tidal waves. From 1776 until 1960, there were 18 hurricanes in the US and from 1961 until the present, there have been 19 hurricanes in the US (www.infoplease.com).
Planned and Managed Natural Disasters
Is it possible to create hurricanes, rain, cyclones, earthquakes and other natural disasters? The answer is yes. The following is from a newsletter that James McKeever published. In the July, 1983 issue entitled, "Weather Goest Thou?" he wrote,
James McKeever goes on to quote from February, 1981 The Youth Action News:
Russia now appears to be attempting to control the jet stream and the weather. Much of their efforts are based on the work of Nikola Tesla. Around 1900 he devised a system to transmit power which involved the use of Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electromagnetic frequencies. By the using of ELF transmissions, Tesla demonstrated that it is possible to create gigantic electromagnetic standing waves, which could be used to light light bulbs across 50 miles without any wires and could also be used to modify weather patterns. The Carter Administration sold the Soviet Union the world's largest electromagnet, capable of generating a magnetic field 250,000 times greater than earth itself. Dr. Andrew Michrowski and a group of scientists with the Canadian State Department have been monitoring the Soviet ELF transmissions. In a February 1978 letter he wrote describing how the USSR set up giant standing waves.
In February, 1980, ELF researcher J. Morrison compiled a massive bibliography titled, Extremely Low Frequency Fields, which reviewed 700 books and publications on the subject. The bibliography compiled scientific ELF articles from all over the world, including a number published in official Soviet scientific journals. Morrison's list covered the entire field: the effects of ELF on human biology, behavior, weapons, earthquakes, weather modification, etc.
Morrison wrote, 'In the brain, electrical activity ranges from .01-40 Hertz . . . Thus, it is easy to see why Soviet ELF signals, transmitted to America in the 6 Hertz to 12 Hertz range, can cause great harm to US Citizens [as] [b]iological systems (humans included) are very susceptible to small changes in ELF.
An example of the threat from Soviet ELF mind-zapping was described in Dr. Andrija Puharich's research paper, "Global Magnetic Warfare:"
There is no question that the Soviet system can do any one of, or all of the things that Tesla claimed for his transmission of energy through the earth system - the Tesla Magnifying Transmitter. These functions would include:
(1) A directed beam defense weapon; (2) a global monitoring system for the movement of submarines, missiles, aircraft, etc; (3) A climate control system - global; (4) A controlled-earthquake system with global reach; (5) Spectacular sky illumination over specific areas of the planet with attendant disruption of electric power systems, radio, and telephone systems, (6) Most dreaded of all - psychoactive and biological effects on all living things in the air, water, and land; and (7) Ultimate potential to exercise brain, mind, and mood control over human beings by magnetic means - anywhere on the planet earth. As of now - there is no way to hide from the effects of this weak magnetic ELF signal.
According to other researchers, the ability to manipulate the weather has been perfected. The following is from John Christian and his book, The Hidden Secrets of the Alpha Course:
In 1996, Dr. Nick Begich and Jeanne Manning, Canadian authors published a book and produced a video entitled Angels Don't Play this Haarp about the top secret Russian/US government High-Frequency active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). In his book and video, Begich explained how the HAARP Project was being developed as a military weather-control and mind-control weapon by the US Pentagon, Department of Justice, NASA, FEMA, and the CIA linked together around the Ground-based/Space-based Star-Wars Weapons System with Russia.
It is not mere coincidence that the abnormal, massive increase in killer storms, floods and hurricanes during 2004 affecting the West Indies and Florida have emanated from the precise area of the Caribbean that is in the optimum transmission range of the Arecibo HAARP base in Puerto Rico. Mt. St. Helens and the entire US mainland also come under the immediate range of Gakona and others in Alaska. The devastating earthquake and tsunami epi-centered off Sumatra on Sunday, December 26, 2004, was in the optimum range of Russia's Nizhny-Novgorod and Dushanbe bases.
Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald, serving on the President's Science Advisory Committee in 1966 frequently published papers on the military use of weather modification. In his book, Unless Peace Comes, MacDonald described the military applications of weather modification including climate change, melting the polar ice caps, techniques for depleting the ozone layer over the enemy, engineering earthquakes, manipulating ocean waves, and using the earth's energy fields for brain wave manipulation.
In April 1997, it was reported that US Defense Secretary Cohen said, "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes, remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves . . . So there are plenty of ingenious minds that are finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real and that is why we have to intensify our [counter-terrorism] efforts." Interestingly enough, it is in this understanding that we now turn to the efforts of the United Nations on disaster relief.
At the World Conference on Disaster Reduction held in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan in January, 2005, the report of Group B was, "In Africa, we need to warn people about both natural disasters as well as man-induced disasters." Furthermore at that meeting, participating countries, including the US presented national reports on what they are doing to put the "Framework for disaster risk reduction for guidance and monitoring" into place which conforms to the UN agenda on disaster relief.
DISASTER RELIEF AND THE UNITED NATIONS
According to The Commission on Global Governance, "Military, political, development and humanitarian work should be seen as complementary and mutually supportive." So what is the UN agenda on disaster relief? At its core, you will find that it is based on sustainable development as found in Agenda 21 and the need for countries to be integrated. In Our Global Neighborhood, A Report of The Commission on Global Governance, released in 1995, the commission admonished, "There is a compelling need for a holistic approach to disasters and humanitarian assistance that cuts across traditional boundaries" (p.205).
That is an ongoing philosophical evolution of what the role and position of the United Nations is in the world today. Let us first look at what it is doing in the areas of disaster relief and then the evolving philosophy behind the UN's growing role in world affairs.
A GLOBAL TSUNAMI WARNING SYSTEM
In 1987 the United Nations General Assembly voted to designate the 1990s as a decade in which the international community, under UN auspices would pay special attention to fostering international cooperation in the areas of natural disaster reduction. Proclaiming the 1990s as the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, it adopted an International Framework of Action for the Decade (resolution 44/236 of 12/22/87). Throughout the 1990s, the United Nations and its member nations worked on creating a vast framework for humanitarianism. . .
The paper, "Natural Disasters and Sustainable Development: Understanding the Links between Development, Environment and Natural Disasters" recognized "the increase in natural hazards such as earthquakes, droughts, floods, storms, and tropical cyclones, wild land fires, and volcanic eruptions have caused major loss of human lives and livelihood, the destruction of economic and social infrastructure as well as environmental damages."
As a result, it led to the adoption of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction - ISDR by governments to succeed as a recommendation emanating from the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction-IDNRD 1990-1999. The goal is to:
Mobilize governments, UN agencies, regional bodies, the private sector, and civil society to united efforts in building resilient societies by development of a culture of prevention preparedness. The escalation of severe disaster events triggered by natural hazards and related technological and environmental disasters are increasing, posing a substantive threat to both sustainable development and poverty-reduction initiatives. Intensity of extreme hydrometeorological events, [is] due in to particular to climate change.
The paper states that 100,000 lives are lost each year due to natural hazards, with the global cost of $300B by 2050 if the impact of climate change is not countered - which they connect to natural disasters. In other words, if they are using HAARP technology to create natural disasters, they are now using it to adopt climate change policies.
Their solutions all revolve around public-private partnerships. Their goals include: "Partnering with regional agencies, national government and local community stakeholders, partnering with national and regional agencies, partnering with national institutions, academia and the private sector, partnering with governments, UN agencies, professional associations and other relevant groups, partnering with international organizations, partnering with libraries and religious leaders and institutions."
After the tsunami in the South Seas in December 2005, the UN convened a Special ASEAN leaders' meeting which emphasized the role of the UN system in coordinating immediate global activities related to relief, rehabilitation, and reconstruction programs. On January 20, 2005, the World Conference on Disaster Reduction held a special session on the South Seas earthquake and tsunami. There, 160 governments called for the development of a South Seas tsunami early warning system.
The March 2005 Meeting
The International Coordination Meeting for the Development of a Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System for the Indian Ocean within a Global Framework was held at UNESCO Headquarters between March 3-8, 2005. Attended by nearly 300 participants from 21 countries in the Indian Ocean region and 25 from IOC countries and more than 24 organizations, the meeting adopted a warning system for the Indian Ocean. UNESCO Director-General Mr. Koichiro Matsuura said in his opening speech that the Indian Ocean System is just "the first step in building a Global Tsunami Warning System that will be fully embedded in the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission - IOC global, operational ocean observing system." He outlined that the "soon-to-be-established Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) that will aim at integrating space-based and 'insitu' observations covering the land, the ocean, the atmosphere and ecosystems." GEOSS will be built within the next ten years.
The UN Economic and Social Council for Asia and the Pacific - UNESCAP met in January 28, 2005. As a result, the General Assembly adopted a Resolution to Strengthen Emergency Relief, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Prevention in the Aftermath of the Indian Ocean Tsunami Disaster.
One of the UNESCAP papers that came out of the January meeting recognized the need for "Financing for Development" which refers to the 2002 International Conference on Financing for Development which focused on finding ways for the UN to increase their income. The paper "Global and Regional Mechanisms for Promoting Trade and Investment in Tsunami Affected Countries" was published in the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Review magazine. It argued that "the tsunami, while an isolated event, can ACT AS A CATALYST FOR MORE RAPID GLOBAL AND REGIONAL TRADE AND INVESTMENT LIBERALIZATION WHICH WOULD ACT AS AN ENGINE OF ECONOMIC GROWTH.
Trade and investment not only generate financial resources for disaster relief and economic rehabilitation, but also contribute directly to poverty reduction through employment income generation." The paper pointed out that those most affected were "NOT PART OF THE MAINSTREAM FORMAL ECONOMY AND LACKED THE IMMEDIATE TO MEDIUM-TERM MEANS TO PROVIDE FOR THEMSELVES." This paper again concluded that regional integration was one of the key answers.
A Global Tsunami Warning System
Furthermore at the UN 60th Anniversary meeting, there was discussion of both a regional Indian Ocean early warning system and a global early warning system. I asked Robert Carr, a UN Undersecretary-General about the global early warning system. He told me
Early warning means for all types of natural disaster where seismic readings could be used or meteorological information - that there be a system that could be communicated to every country. Essentially, we could have stayed ahead of shock waves coming out of Indonesia and warned the other countries before it hit but it is not set up now. Currently we have seismic sensors in the bottom of the Indian Ocean but they are used for other purposes: for non-proliferation monitoring and the explosions. Currently we have an agreement to create a global warning system. A lot of it exists technically now but they need the political agreement for how to fuse these pieces together.
Lastly, I asked if once it was put in place, if it would constitute a "global FBI of the seas." He refused to answer my question. By the end of 2005, the UN will have held 44 global meetings on natural disaster. What is a public-private partnership? Why does business want to take over the role of government?
Public Private Partnerships
A public-private partnership is exactly what it says it is. It is a business partnership with the goal of making a profit and NOT providing a service like government. A formal business agreement or contract seals the partnership. The business form of partnership provides the most flexibility for operating business as it can be expanded and more partners can be added in the future. Secondly, there are public and private partners. The public partners are all levels of government, from local, to county, state, regional and federal as well as foreign and international, such as the United Nations. The private partners include corporations - those with the deepest pockets and non-governmental organizations like Planned Parenthood, The nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Red Cross, or the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation. Examples of public-private partnerships include sewer systems, power plants, water facilities, charter schools, etc.,
Because all levels of government are broke, the fact that business comes in to "help" is really a transfer of the responsibilities that government use to provide for its citizens as a service to corporations. The corporations want to make a profit. The little lady who receives a 30% increase in her sewer or water bill is not going to understand that the sewer system that used to belong to the city where she lives has now been transferred into a business arrangement that still includes the City as a partner but also has new financial resources with the corporate partner. Who has the real power? Whoever has the money. All across the country and globe, at every level of government, assets are being transferred from government and the citizenry to a new business arrangement in which the goal is a profit.
Since 1996, I have seen nothing less than constant movement of government and business. There has been a constant stream of meetings between government and business with some of them at the United Nations. It appears to me that if the humanitarian/disaster relief is "made to order" and will provide the corporations with a constant stream of new economic re-development projects designed to not only "improve" the city or area that has been destroyed, but also provide them with the ability to change the structure of government from one that represents the people to one that is for their benefit alone.
THE BUSINESS RESPONSE TO NATURAL DISASTER
In April, 2005, The Business Roundtable hosted a one day meeting at the United Nations with international relief organizations for the purpose of cooperating to improve their joint response to global disasters. According to the UN, this gathering was "unprecedented as they began to outline ways to respond more effectively to global disaster and emergencies in the future." Earlier in December, 2004 the corporations contributed more than $450M in aid for the South Seas tsunami. Taking that disaster as their mandate, they are now looking to re-build the region through public-private partnerships. Former President Bill Clinton who was appointed UN Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, told the participants,
A NEW FORM OF GOVERNMENT Regional or Metro Government
You were there on the ground bringing clean water, shelter and other life-saving materials to those who suffered unspeakable loss in the tsunami. Now the challenge is to use this momentum to help us build the region back better - with less poverty, more economic diversification and greater security. If we achieve this in the tsunami region, we will have an inspiring model for action for other countries in crisis.
Furthermore, public-private partnerships facilitate regional or metro government. Regionalism or metropolitan government was put into place in the United States by Richard Nixon in 1969. Using Executive Order No. 11647, President Nixon reorganized the powers of national government to subordinate the American people when he divided the United States into ten regions with ten new regional capitals, each ruled by its own federal director who reports directly to the president. He then moved five federal agenciesHousing and Urban DevelopmentHUD, Health, Education and WelfareHEW, Small Business AdministrationSBA and Labor as being part of the new structure of government. This new structure fits in with the regions that the United Nations has divided the world into. A White House spokesman said that "if you broke these regions up and put them in the United Nations Gazetteer, they would be the '8th . . . 12th . . . 14th biggest and richest countries in the world" (Jo Hindman, The Metrocrats, Caxton Printers, Ltd., 1974, p.14).
Regional or metropolitan government is an additional layer of government Nixon placed over elected government in order to change the power structure our Constitution put in place: small federal government with a strong state government. This no longer exists as our States send all their tax money to Washington which then reallocates those monies to the metro level of government! In other words, those in leadership over us who have access to money and who are given power are not elected, they are appointed, thus, reducing the power of REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT.
Look at the UN, everyone in any position of power is APPOINTED, from the secretary-general down to UN ambassadors. If you Look at the European Union, most of those in key functions are APPOINTED NOT ELECTED. Add public private partnership to appointed government, and you have just allowed the rich to buy their agenda without any accountability.
THE GLOBALIZATION OF GIVING
There are many ways to "transfer wealth." Higher oil prices transfer wealth through inflation. Another common form of transfer is by taxation. Then there is what I call the "globalization of giving" which takes money from people in times of distress by tugging on their heart strings and not their purse strings.
The Indian Ocean tsunami raised $1B in gifts and donations from the United States alone. Of that amount, $750M was collected from private relief sources. The UN received over $5B for victims. The Red Cross received $150M and Amazon.com collected $3M from 53,000 people. Relief came not only from government and private individuals, but corporations as well. Many companies set up funds for their employees to respond to the disaster. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in response to the massive outpouring, "The past 11 days have been among the darkest in our lifetime. But they have also allowed us to see a new kind of light. We have seen the world coming together" (FT, 1I7/05).
While Americans are known for giving out of the goodness of their hearts, let us take a look at what is happening from a governmental perspective. The charitable gifts of people are really a new form of taxation as the government does not have to meet the costs charity is paying. Think about that. Am I saying we should do nothing? No, That is not Christian, but there are those who exploit goodness. From a global perspective, this outpouring from the heart now constitutes the "globalization of giving." The world is being integrated in a new way: through disaster relief as people come together from all parts of the world to help those in need. This is a new facet in global interconnectedness: the final integration is tying the world together through the heart, disaster and humanitarianism, not God.
As the saga of New Orleans Orleans and Galveston evolves, we will see the plot unfold. We know massive rebuilding will stimulate the economy. Is this part of "creative destruction"? Yes. Were these hurricanes planned? I believe they were and that they are only the first of a series of catastrophic events we will see on American soil. As 9/11 was the impetus to tear down the remaining barriers between the nation-states, these hurricanes are the impetus to finalize the interconnectedness of the world. Were the Gulf States chosen? Yes. Do I believe this will further UN goals? Yes. I have already outlined a number of ways in which the world will be further integrated as a result of the hurricanes. And the domestic changes that have and will take place will empower world government at every turn.
Now the economic, political, trade, legal, military and intelligence barriers between the nation-states are down, it is public-private partnership, disaster relief and humanitarianism that are the tools for final interconnectedness. Humanitarianism is the war cry of globalists: "Governments no longer work like they did in the past and we now need 'innovative forms of governance'," the public-private partnership. Watch closely, the whole idea is "human beings at the center for sustainable development," and at the center of the UN focus. It is no longer governments. nl401.htm
