WASHINGTON'S NEW ENEMY

Tyranny at it's finest - go along to get along......  Sounds like my MIL.  Arghhhh

The founding fathers would just cringe at what our nation has become:

Hungary’s Viktor Orban: Washington’s New Enemy Image

Hungary and its populist nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban have come into the cross-hairs of Washington’s political elites. His sin? Not buckling under to the often destructive diktats of the Brussels EU Commission; attempting to define a Hungarian national identity. But his cardinal sin is his deepening relationship with Russia and his defiance of Washington in signing an agreement with Gazprom for bringing the Russian South Stream gas pipeline into the EU via Hungary.

Orban has himself undergone a political journey since he was elected as Hungary’s second-youngest Prime Ministers in 1998. Back then he oversaw the entry of Hungary along with Poland and the Czech Republic into NATO over Russia’s protest, and into the EU. As Prime Minister during far more prosperous economic times in the EU, Orban cut taxes, abolished university tuition for qualified students, expanded maternity benefits, and attracted German industry with low-cost Hungarian labor. One of his American “advisers” then was James Denton, linked with the Color Revolution Washington NGO, Freedom House. Orban seemed the darling of Washington’s neo-cons. In 2001 he was given the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute’s Freedom Award.

But in 2010 after six years in the opposition, Orban returned, this time with a resounding majority for his Fidesz-Hungarian Civic Union Party, Fidesz for short. In fact Fidesz won a 68% supermajority in Parliament, giving it the necessary votes to alter the Constitution and pass new laws, which it did. Ironically, in a case of the pot calling the kettle black, the United States Obama Administration and the European Parliament for placing too much power in the hands of Fidesz. Orban was accused by Daniel Cohn-Bendit of the European Greens of making Hungary on the model of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. He was definitely not playing by the approved Brussels Rulebook for politically submissive EU politicians. Fidesz began to be demonized in EU media as the Hungarian version of United Russia and Orban as the Hungarian Putin. That was in 2012.

Now its getting alarming for the Atlanticists and their EU followers. Orban has defied EU demands to stop construction of Russia’s important South Stream gas pipeline.

Russia’s South Stream gas pipeline would guarantee EU gas together with German-Russian Nord Stream that could bypass the war in Ukraine something Washington bitterly opposes for obvious reasons

Last January Orban’s government announced a € 10 billion deal with the Russian state nuclear energy company to refurbish Hungary’s only nuclear power plant at Paks, originally built during the Soviet era with Russian technology.

That caused some attention in Washington. Similarly when Orban criticized the United States this past summer for failing to ultimately resolve the global financial crisis its banks and its lax regulation caused, and praised China, Turkey and Russia as better models. He declared in words not too different from what I have often used that Western democracies, “will probably be incapable of maintaining their global competitiveness in the upcoming decades and will instead be scaled down unless they are capable of changing themselves significantly.” In addition, Orban’s government managed to free Hungary from decades of devastating IMF bondage. In August 2013, the Hungarian Economic Ministry announced that it had, thanks to a “disciplined budget policy,” repaid the remaining €2.2 billion owed to the IMF. No more onerous IMF-forced state privatizations or conditionalities. The head of the Hungarian Central Bank then demanded the IMF close its offices in Budapest. In addition, echoing Iceland, the State Attorney General brought charges against the country’s three previous prime ministers because of the criminal amount of debt into which they plunged the nation. That’s a precedent that surely causes cold sweat in some capitals of the EU or Washington and Wall Street.

A VIEW INTO THE WORLD BEYOND DEATH

While this is not an LDS perspective, it is interesting nonetheless because it shows what happens to those are too connected to things and this world to rise above after this mortal journey is over.

I think there is much to be learned here:

THIS IS HOW YOU TAKE A NATION DOWN

Imagine if the grid dropped now.  Most would freeze to death within just a few days (at least right now).  Most cannot handle very basic infrastructure changes.

This is a very real threat.  If you are China, you do not invest millions into the study of the other nation's infrastructure unless you have nefarious plans.

Here is the article:

RUSSIANS THREATEN GUAM (AGAIN)

I am sure we did several things like this during the Cold War.  Russia is yanking our chains yet again.

Here is what is happening:

Russian Bombers Threaten Guam

Two Tu-95 Bears circumnavigate Pacific island, site of major U.S. base (UPDATED)

BY:

Two Russian strategic bombers circled the U.S. island of Guam last week in what U.S. defense officials say is the latest in a series of nuclear provocations by Moscow.
The bombers were identified by air defenses as Tu-95 Bear H nuclear-capable aircraft that circumnavigated the strategic U.S. military outpost on Friday—amid heightened tensions with Moscow regarding a new buildup of Russian forces in and along the border of eastern Ukraine.
“U.S. Pacific Command can confirm that two aircraft circumnavigated Guam on November 13th,” said spokesman  Maj. Christian Devine. “The aircraft were flying safely in international airspace and in accordance with international norms; as such, the decision was made to not intercept them.”
Friday’s flights were the second time in the past two years that Russia conducted unusual long-range bomber missions around the island. Two Tu-95s circled the island on Feb. 12, 2013 and were intercepted by F-15 jets.
The latest bomber flights around the island, located 4,000 miles west of Hawaii, appeared timed to coincide with the G-20 summit in Brisbane, Australia and come amid new tensions with Russia over Ukraine.
The flights took place a day before President Obama arrived in Brisbane for the summit where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The president told reporters Sunday he had a “businesslike and blunt” exchange with Putin on Ukraine, and urged the Russian leader to “resolve the issue.” Russia’s military forcibly annexed Ukraine’s Crimea and is threatening military action in support of pro-Moscow rebels in eastern Ukraine.
The flights also came after Moscow announced plans to conduct long-range strategic bomber flights over the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said Nov. 12 that “we have to maintain [Russia's] military presence in the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific, as well as the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico,” adding that dispatches of bombers would be “part of the drills.”
Shoigu said the flights are “connected to the situation in Ukraine, with the emerging anti-Russia inclinations on the part of NATO and the increasing foreign military presence in the immediate vicinity of our borders.”
Guam is the U.S. military’s most important strategic hub in the Asia Pacific and the key base for the Pentagon’s new “Air Sea Battle” concept that calls for closer coordination of Air Force and Navy forces to counter China.
The Air Force regularly deploys B-52 and B-2 bombers to Guam and the long-range Global Hawk drone also operates from the island.
The War is Boring blog reported Nov. 9 that the new RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone was photographed at the island’s Anderson Air Force Base.
The Navy has deployed three attack submarines to Guam and plans to add a fourth as part of the so-called Asia pivot.
The 2013 Russian bomber incursion around Guam came shortly before President Obama’s state of the union message.
Russia in recent years has stepped up aerial incursions into U.S. air defense zones in both the western and eastern coasts. One bomber incursion near Canada’s east coast was assessed by U.S. intelligence agencies as a practice for a nuclear cruise missile strike on the United States.
The closest encounter came in June when two bombers came within 50 miles of California in what military officials said was the nearest Russian strategic aircraft had flown since the Cold War.
“The nuclear bomber provocations have been going on since 2007 but clearly have reached an unprecedented level in 2014,” said Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon official involved in strategic nuclear policy.
“We had better start taking these activities and Russian nuclear strategy seriously and take actions that enhance our nuclear deterrent, or we risk a serious miscalculation on Putin’s part that could result in a major war,” said Schneider, now with the National Institute for Public Policy.
Propeller-driven Bear H bombers are relatively old aircraft but are equipped with Kh-55SM cruise missiles. The missile can be armed with nuclear or conventional warheads and have a range of up to 1,800 miles.
Putin was given a harsh welcome at the Brisbane summit, which ended Sunday. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Putin at the meeting, “I guess I’ll shake your hand, but I have only one thing to say to you: You need to get out of Ukraine.”
Putin left the summit early but denied the departure was related to foreign leaders’ opposition to Russian intervention in Ukraine.
During brief encounters at an earlier summit in Beijing and the one in Australia, Obama told Putin that Russia should abide by the September peace agreement reached in Belarus on Ukraine and voiced concerns about a Russian military buildup in eastern Ukraine, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Nov.13.
On Sunday in Australia, Obama accused the Russians of violating the Belarus accord by supplying arms to rebels in eastern Ukraine.
The Bear bomber flights followed earlier aerial provocations over Europe in late October, prompting NATO interceptor jets to shadow Russian bombers as they flew along Europe’s northern coast as far south as Portugal.
The Russian aircraft were supposed to fly through the Mediterranean where they would have been refueled by aerial tankers that had been deployed to Egypt’s Cairo International Airport. But the longer flights were called off, U.S. and NATO officials said.
Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon’s press spokesman, voiced concerns about the Russian flights over Europe. “We certainly don’t see these increased flights and activity as helpful to the security situation in Europe,” Kirby told reporters.
“Clearly they pose a potential risk of escalation.”
Russia under Putin, a former KGB political police and intelligence service official, has increased its nuclear saber rattling in recent months. In August, the Russian leader warned the West not to “mess” with a nuclear-armed Russia.
Russia’s Pravda, the Russian Federation Communist Party newspaper, reported Nov. 11 that Moscow is preparing a “nuclear surprise” for NATO: A vast numerical superiority over NATO in numbers of tactical nuclear weapons.
“Here is another surprise, the report said. “As for tactical nuclear weapons, the superiority of modern-day Russia over NATO is even stronger.”
The report said NATO has deployed 260 tactical nuclear arms in Europe, including 200 U.S. bombs at six airbases in Germany, Italy and Belgium.
“Russia, according to conservative estimates, has 5,000 pieces of different classes of [theater nuclear weapons]—from Iskander warheads to torpedo, aerial and artillery warheads,” the report said.
UPDATED 8:45 a.m.: This story was updated to include official comment from the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM), and corrected to reflect the PACOM spokesman’s assertion that only two Russian bombers circumnavigated the island, and not four, as was initially reported.

EARTH WOBBLE? A NEW SKY AND NEW HEAVENS?

I have been wondering the same things myself.  I have no astronomical background or sacred rocks to take bearings from (the Navajo have been saying the same thing about their rocks not lining up with the stars like they used to).  Interesting:

A BLAST INTO DENVER'S BLOG

Every once in a while, I will think of Denver and pop over to see how he is doing.  I hope the best for him and hold no ill will towards him unless he is knowingly seeking to bring people down to their destruction.  On the flip side, I do hold malice and contempt for my compatriot growing up, Tal Bachman, who I believe is doing just that as one of the leading anti-Mormons of our day.  I know the diet and environment that Tal was raised on (for mine was virtually one and the same), and I do not approve of how that situation is going.

I agree 100% with what Denver had to say here - most likely in response to the release of the essays on early polygamy in the Church.  There is not a single reason or argument for a single person to remain in a state of ignorance.  This is part of the reason I read as much as I do - and then share what I find on this rag.  I like to be situationally aware, for this life is similar to going on a safari.  Its best that we know what dangers lurk around us before we venture out amidst the feral beasts of the night.

Mysteries And Truth

Joseph Smith taught that it is critical for us to know the mysteries of God. "Knowledge saves a man; and in the world of spirits no man can be exalted but by knowledge." TPJS, p. 357.

"A man is saved no faster than he gets knowledge, for if he does not get knowledge, he will be brought into captivity by some evil power in the other world." TPJS, p. 217.

Joseph understood we are saved by gaining knowledge about God’s mysteries. When we are ignorant of them, we cannot be saved. No one can be saved in ignorance. It is not possible.

Joseph's knowledge mirrored what is taught and reflected in the Book of Mormon:

Alma 12: 9-11 explains:
It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God; nevertheless they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of his word which he doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him. And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word; and he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full. And they that will harden their hearts, to them is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning his mysteries; and then they are taken captive by the devil, and led by his will down to destruction. Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell.”

The definition of being taken captive by the devil is to “know nothing concerning [God’s] mysteries.”

When a person knows nothing concerning God’s mysteries, they are then “led by his [the devil’s] will down to destruction.”

When they are taken captive by their ignorance, they are then bound “by the chains of hell.”

The result of ignorance of God’s mysteries is “destruction” and “captivity.” The ignorant will remain devoted to falsehoods, blinded leaders, and guides who give no truthful accounts of the awful situation faced by the ignorant because they do not understand truth.

D&C 93: 24-25: “And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come; And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.”

We must know the truth. The truth informs us how things are (now, today, in the peril we presently face–unvarnished and in all its terrible meaning).

The truth informs us of how things were (by accurate history, revealing exactly what happened, without mythical or political overlay, with its disappointments and tragedies candidly depicted).

The truth informs us of the things to come (even if the prophecies and promises dash our hopes, crush our vanity and expose our foolishness).

Truth can be startling, but it is necessary. Without the truth it is impossible to repent. We will never change while trusting a lie. But we will never fail to repent when the truth is laid bare before us.

In order to take people captive, all that is required is for people to be content with their ignorance. The greatest threat to salvation does not come from teaching false doctrine, but instead comes from ignoring doctrine altogether. Substituting platitudes and truisms for careful, ponderous and solemn investigation of the deep things of God will suffice to keep people in the chains of captivity. It isn't necessary for the devil to convince you of lies, only for him to make you content in your ignorance, or fearful of the search for truth.

THE PITCH FORKS ARE COMING OUT?

A word from the uber-wealthy to the uber-wealthy.....

Things are about to change.  Get ready.

I happen to think he is right.  There are a lot of frustrated people in America who feel that they are trapped financially and socially.  They will effect change one way or another......

Most are just looking for a trigger event:

P^3 QUOTE ON DREAMS

I liked this and thought I would share:
"In all ages and dispensations God has revealed many important instructions and warnings to men by means of dreams. When the outward organs of thought and perception are released from their activity, the nerves unstrung, and the whole of mortal humanity lies hushed in quiet slumbers, in order to renew its strength and vigour, it is then that the spiritual organs are at liberty, in a certain degree, to assume their wonted functions, to recall some faint outlines, some confused and half defined recollections, of that heavenly world, and those endearing scenes of their former estate, from which they have descended in order to obtain and mature a tabernacle of flesh. Their kindred spirits, their guardian angels then hover about them with the fondest affection, the most anxious solicitude. Spirit communes with spirit, thought meets thought, soul blends with soul, in all the raptures of mutual, pure, and eternal love. In this situation, the spiritual organs are susceptible of converse with Deity, or of communion with angels, and the spirits of just men made perfect."
Key to the science of theology by Parley P. Pratt

COULD IT BE THIS BAD?

My first rule is:  never trust a satanist or a statist.

If it is this entrenched, we are pretty much in deep doo-doo.  Christ will win - but holy smokes, the odds are def stacked against an easy victory.

Here is what got me spun up:

In an explosive deathbed confession, a former head of the satanist "Alpha Lodge" in Sydney, Australia, revealed the pervasive worldwide power of organized Satanism, which is synonymous with the Illuminati.

"Things are not as they seem -- and they have not been for a long, long time," he wrote, describing a wholesale betrayal of society by its ostensible leaders.

"Petor Narsagonan" aka "Frater 616" died March 25, 2004. Recently, his executor, an "Aloysius Fozdyke" (their satanic names) sent the 15 pp. document by email to Arthur Cristian, webmaster of "loveforlife.com.au"

"I have felt it necessary to edit very little of this work," "Fozdyke" wrote to Cristian, "although legal considerations have ensured that some names and details were excised. It was His intention to have this published in the popular media."

What follows is a synopsis of this shocking document focusing on Satanic power and influence.

Satanic influence is "now so pervasive as not to be readily noticed," Frater says.

Satanists are laced throughout Australian society, and the pattern is replicated everywhere.
They include politicians, doctors, high ranking police officers, lawyers, decorated military men, media personalities, fashion models and social workers. The most talented have lifestyles maintained by crime under a veneer of respectable professionalism and knowledge. Marginal types (prostitutes, drug dealers) are important to Satanism but are merely tools.

Frater explains he got involved in a satanic group in university in 1971. "I fell through a crack in reality...I escaped the mundane through one of western society's fault lines."

"A mentor" in the Satanic network set him up in the travel business and for years Frater live a life of unimaginable wealth, occultism and debauchery. He studied the blacks arts: divination, dark meditation, sacrifice, sexual vampirism, voodoo dolls and sex magic. Each day ended with a "Black Mass orgy of unforgettable and unspeakable delight."

The US-based "Church of Satan" was the public face of "an ancient body whose very existence had never before been imagined." He lists as "influential members" J.P. Morgan, Drs. James McDonald and Rene Hardy, the Kennedy's (including Jackie), Irving Berlin, Groucho Marx, Elvis Presley, Garner Ted Armstrong, Sammy Davis Jr., Ronald Reagan, Edward Heath, Thomas Plantard de St Claire and the Bushes. He later mentions Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas and Gerald Ford as members.


US MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE INFILTRATED BY SATANISTS


Intelligence agencies are instruments of the Illuminati central bankers. Frater says, "American Intelligence Services" funded the occult.

"Many of America's high ranking military men were members of various Satanic Lodges or kindred organizations." They overlapped with organized crime and drug trafficking. US and Australian Navy ships were used, as well as oil tankers.

Brothels and porn are a small part of the "International Satanic Empire" (i.e. Illuminati.) Most of the money comes from CIA drug trafficking, sophisticated blackmail, money lending and currency trading.

"The US Federal government dances to our tune ( a couple of steps removed, if you know what I mean!)"

"Satanists of the highest order are behind a number of wealthy, Conservative, New Right Christian churches and organizations in America. These are some of contemporary Satanism's best cash-flow enterprises (mostly indirectly) and allow mass indoctrination and networking."

Henry Kissinger first proposed using fundamentalist Christianity to bring about war, first in the Middle East and then globally. Kissinger "refined Hitler's 'Terror Technique' ... building tension within a society and then finding a scapegoat. Dark Path adepts do this ... to move people to more gross and hideous behaviors."

The aim of the Alpha Lodge is 66% illiteracy rates in the Western World by 2010, and "the destruction of at least 70% of the globe's population by the year 2030."

RUSSIA DOES ABOVE GROUND NUKE TEST??.... URALS

It seems that it would have lasted longer than that.  It was some kind of high energy event - but not so sure on the nuke thing.

I would not be surprised, it it were.  Running their military airplanes around European airspace with the transponder off and generally breaking every international norm that they can.  They feel cornered and they are trying to send a message to back off, folks.  When that nation feels like they can do nothing else to get our attention - they will do the unthinkable:
