General Dempsey: US Military ‘Ready to Engage in a Conflict with Iran’!

World War 3 at the door steps?

  • America has been transformed into a fascist military state. The #1 industry of America is the war industry. America is unmatched when it comes to weapons of mass destruction and ability to wage war throughout the world. It has the most war mongering MSM and politician snakes in the world.
  • America will be destroyed in the coming Satanic World War 3 (Sep/Oct 2012?) which it is trying to provoke. It will be re-made, after the war, re-engineered, enlarged … and finally merged into the Luciferian New World Order, World Government, Global Fascist Militarized-Police State. This is the coming Mystery Babylon Whore of Revelation 17. I expect the RFID microchipping with ‘666’ to begin in America and the genocide of millions of Christians by the Satanic cabal which runs America.
  • This coming war with Iran is the start of the Greater Middle East War and stage 1 of the Satanic World War 3. It will be nuclear. The Illuminists plan is the total destruction of the Middle East and Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit, in particular. Do not fall for this scam! Do not get involve (using violence, militarily) in this war. Jesus Christ’s commandments are very clear: love God, love your fellowmen (and even your enemies) and express the love of God to your fellowmen by preaching the Gospel. That is all. Jesus Christ never taught me to hate and kill Muslims or anybody. But to love them. Absolutely to love, always to love! (emphasis and remarks mine)

    US military ‘ready to engage in a conflict with Iran’! 
    By Amy Willis, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ 
    America’s most senior military official has indicated that the country is ready to engage in a conflict with Iran, if President Barack Obama were to give the signal.

    Tensions have been growing in the region following international condemnation over Tehran’s growing nuclear ambitions. Last month, Britain’s ambassador to Iran was expelled from the country following attacks on the British Embassy. The US is also involved in a standoff over a downed spy drone, which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has refused to return despite America’s requests.

    General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, said that the US military had reached a point where they were ready to execute force against Iran if necessary. In an interview with US media in Afghanistan he said: “We are examining a range of options. I’m satisfied that the options that we are developing are evolving to a point that they would be executable if necessary.”

    His comments come just days after Leon Panetta, US secretary of defence, said “no options were off the table” in stopping Iran develop a nuclear weapon. (Panetta is repeating the Big Lie psyop! Iran does not have any nuclear weapons or a nuclear weapons program!)

    Gen Dempsey said he had been quietly leading behind the scenes preparations for an attack against Tehran but said a war with the nation would be a “tragedy”. “My biggest worry is that it may miscalculate our resolve. Any miscalculation could mean that we are drawn into conflict and that would be a tragedy for the region and the world,” he said.


    Asked whether the US military is collecting information on the Middle Eastern nation via spy drones, Gen Dempsey said it would be “imprudent” for them not to attempt to find out what they were doing but stopped short of saying they had used unmanned aircraft.

    “If you are asking are we gathering intelligence against Iran in a variety of means, the answer is of course,” he said. “It would be imprudent of us not to understand what a nation which has declared itself an adversary of the United States is doing.” Gen Dempsey said the US is collaborating with Israel in its intelligence gathering but reiterated that there are no guarantees the Israelis would inform the US before launching an attack.

    “We are trying to establish some confidence on the part of the Israelis that we recognise their concerns and are collaborating with them on addressing them,” he said.

Battleship Movie Trailer: Another Alien Invasion Film (USO – Unidentified Submersible Object)!

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 (New King James Version)
    9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
  • Another Alien invasion movie (www.battleshipmovie.com). This time it is a USO (Unidentified Submersible Object). It appears the Illuminists are upping their schedule for the coming endtimes strong delusion. This is a UFO-Alien Invasion, Return of the Ancient Alien Gods hoax which is really a Return of the Fallen Angels, Antediluvian Titans and their Nephilim demigod children.
  • This complex delusion, dark deception appears to be coming in 3 phases. The sequence as far as I can assess is below. We appear to be heading into phase 1 rapidly. I am not confident of an accurate guestimate of how long this phase will last. It will likely be a minimum of 3 years (from the start of the World War 3) to 5-8 years or more?? World War 3 will be nuclear, how long can it last? As 2012 progresses and events unfold, it will be easier to guestimate and work out the exact sequence of events.

    Pre-Phase
    i. Start of Satanic World War 3 ! (Sep/Oct 2012? D-day)

    Phase 1
    i A fake 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ which turns out to be a UFO-Return of the Alien Gods (who ‘bio-engineered man’ in ancient times). These Alien ‘Gods’ are really the Fallen Angels (200 Titans) which came down to earth in Genesis 6 and their Nephilim demigod children.

    ii. This UFO-Alien Disclosure event will likely occur at the end of the coming Satanic World War 3 or the end of the first stage – the Greater Middle East War. Could it happen during the occult date of 21 Dec 2012? (Return of Bolon Yokte?)

    – Destruction of the Satanic counterfeit Zionist ‘666’ Israel.
    – Great Falling Away of the Church.
    – Return of the semitic biological children of the 12 tribes of Israel to Palestine.
    – Start of genocide (in America first) of Christians who refuse to take ‘Mark of the Beast 666’ RFID microchip.
    – Grafting back of Israel into God’s plan and Rapture of Church.

    Phase 2 (D-day + 3 to 8 years?? or more??)
    i. The coming of the Anti-Christ, man of Sin, son of Satan.
    ii. Signing of the peace treaty of 7 years.
    iii. The arrival of ‘good’ Aliens ie. Satan and his fallen angels kicked out of heaven.


    Phase 3
    i. Massive dark deception against the world to attack Jesus Christ on His 2nd Coming. The ‘evil’ Aliens hoax!
  • Disclaimer – the last time I checked my name is not God, neither am I a prophet of God, wise man … nor do I have visions/dreams from God or God speaks to me directly. Above are just my intelligent assessment / guestimate. It may be intelligent but it is still guess-work. Be highly skeptical but keep an open mind. I don’t have a problem with people who totally disagree with me. It’s ok.

Curiosity: Can We Live Forever?

  • This documentary is filled with Illuminist predictive programming:

    – life extension technology
    – ‘eternal life’ via soul/mind transfer technology into new bodies
    – coming magical miraculous medical technologies
  • My suspicion/assessment is that these technologies will be offered to humanity with the arrival of the UFO-Return of the Alien ‘Gods’ hoax! This coming strong delusion can happen at the end of the coming Greater Middle East War, the first phase of the Satanic World War 3 !

    Revelation 18:11-13 New King James Version (NKJV) 
    11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, … oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.

    Revelation 9:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV) 
    5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
  • These verses suggest some unusual technologies IMO.

The Iran/Iraq War: Big Oil & Their Bankers – The Muslim Brotherhood Subsidiary!

  • The sheeple do not understand what is really going on in the world. This world is ruled by a Satanic cabal, seed of the serpent, Illuminati bloodlines. These Illuminists masquerade themselves as Jews, Christians, Muslims …etc. Their method has always been via subtlety and deception to divide and conquer the sheeple. It is about manipulating 1 group of sheeple to kill another group of sheeple eg. Christian, Jewish sheeple vs Muslim sheeple. As long as the sheeple are caught up in wars, they will be of no threat to the Satanists, ruling elites/families! The sheeple are deceived, useful idiots complicit in their own destruction!
  • The Christian sheeple are particularly deceived over the situation in the Middle East. All scams are based on deception and mis-direction. Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit, was created by Illuminists for the attack and destruction of Christianity. It will be destroyed in the coming Satanic World War 3. Most Christians (approx. 40M in America) in the west will fall when they see the destruction of this Illuminist construct. Because they have based all their endtimes theology on this Satanic illusion!
  • I have highlighted in many posts that the Muslim Brotherhood is really an asset of western Illuminist intelligence agencies: CIA, MI6, Mossad … It is Masonic ie. the people who founded this organization were FreeMasons. The people at the top echelons are Masons ie. Illuminists, Satanists! (emphasis mine)

    The Masonic Origins of the Muslim Brotherhood
    The Masonic origins of the Islamists movements, and their true goal to undermine Islam and fight for Western Zionist Powers such as Britain and the United States of America. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs for the Illuminati. The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups, through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same Illuminati cause.

    When we explore the political and financial connections of the terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics, operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the British and American governments, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds


    William Engdahl on Egypt’s uprising:
    They are being organized in a Ukrainian-style high-tech electronic fashion with large internet-linked networks of youth tied to Mohammed ElBaradei and the banned and murky secret Muslim Brotherhood, whose links to British and American intelligence and freemasonry are widely reported.
  • The Muslim Brotherhood Subsidiary 
    by Dean Henderson, The Intel Hub 
    (Excerpted from Chapter 10: The Iran/Iraq War: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
    The irrational deep-seated hatred which the Anglo-American foreign policy establishment holds towards Iran is rooted in the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which overthrew the Four Horsemen stooge Shah and nationalized Iran’s oil and banking industries.

    The Eight Families banking cabal much preferred the mullahs to the leftists. By 1982 CIA and MI6 were passing targeting information to the Ayatollah aimed at Iranian leftist groups like the Tudeh Party, the National Front and the People’s Mujahadeen The mullahs unleashed a reign of terror, assassinating over 4,000 Tudeh Party leaders, while torturing and imprisoning over 10,000 Tudeh members and supporters.  In 1989 many of those imprisoned were sentenced to death. [412]

    Khomeini banned Tudeh, terming them “Marxist satanic elements” – something even the Shah hadn’t done. The Tudeh Party spearheaded the Iranian Revolution through their Committee of 60 oilfield strikes in Khuzistan.  The party earlier ushered in Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, whose attempts to wrest better terms from the Four Horsemen-controlled Iranian Consortium made him the target of a successful BP-financed coup in 1953.

    The US was now once again helping Islamic extremists, this time to exterminate the Iranian left.  One US official assured reporters that the executions “would not hinder the warming of US/Iran relations”. [413]  Big Oil was dealing with the Ayatollah as well, secretly shipping Iranian crude to Saudi Arabia for refining.

    The Israeli Mossad was walking the same high-wire in their country, where in 1978 it allowed the fundamentalist Hamas to become the only Palestinian group registered in Israel.  Within a decade Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin had built a powerful organization that ruled the Gaza Strip under Israeli watch. [414]

    The Israelis found Hamas a convenient bludgeon which they could deploy against Yasser Arafat whose Palestinian Authority had emerged from Fatah and the PLO, both of which put forth a secular left of center political agenda based on Arab unity and nationalism.

    Hamas has a much different agenda.  They are Islamists whose goal is to set up an Islamic state with funding from the undemocratic right-wing GCC sheikdoms, especially the House of Saud.  Hamas regularly receives funds from the Saudis without intervention by the Israelis, while money bound for the PLO is routinely seized by Israeli authorities.  Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon played a critical role in the founding of Hamas in 1988, when his Likud Party doled out 800 licenses to Islamists in the occupied Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank.  The right-wing Israeli Likud uses Hamas to sew division among the Palestinians.

    The Saudis favor Hamas since their interests are firmly aligned with those of the international bankers and the Four Horsemen.  The Saudis prefer fundamentalist groups that talk of “infidels” and “the decadence of Western culture”, to those more radical nationalist groups who rail against the injustice of neo-liberal globalization, a system from which the House of Saud derives its vast wealth.  After the Gulf War the House of Saud cut funding to the PLO to punish Arafat for his opposition to the US bombing of Iraq, while the Saudis continued to fund Hamas. [415]  Many House of Saud members are members of the secret society Muslim Brotherhood-Benoist-Mechin.

    Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which traces its roots back to the Grand Lodge of Cairo and the Assassins secret society which fought alongside Knights Templar invaders in their attacks against Muslim Saracen nationalists during the Crusades.  Hamas, wittingly or not, serves that same “divide and conquer” role today in Sharon’s attacks on the nationalist Arafat.  Hamas suicide bombers are modern-day Assassins, whose actions serve as a pretext for further Israeli aggression against Palestinians.

    It was no coincidence that each time Sharon flew to Washington in 2002 to discuss the increasingly explosive Israeli/Palestinian conflict with President Bush, Hamas activated its suicide bombers.  The bombings enabled Sharon to escape US scrutiny. Each time the Butcher of Shatila was soon on his way back to Tel Aviv to grab more Palestinian land.  In 2005 Hamas won the elections in Palestine, giving the Israelis another excuse to harden their stance.

    Sharon served as ideological guru of both the Gush Emunim and Kach Movement/JDL Jewish underground right-wing terror networks during his 1977-1992 tenure in Israeli Likud governments.  Sharon was also part of the Landscam gang which made millions recruiting Jews from Manhattan to Moscow as buyers of homes built on illegal settlements on Palestinian lands during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Rense & Joseph Farrell: Banksters Engineering Another World War As They Did in The Past !!?

  • The Allied Power’s genocide of the Christian German people! But all you hear about is the fictitious 6 million Holocaust.

    “You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.”
    Winston Churchill, Emrys Hughes, Winston Churchill – His Career in War and Peace, p. 145; quoted as per: Adrian Preissinger, Von Sachsenhausen bis Buchenwald, p. 23.

    “Germany’s unforgivable crime before the second world war was her attempt to extricate her economic power from the world’s trading system and to create her own exchange mechanism which would deny world finance its opportunity to profit.”
    – Churchill to Lord Robert Boothby, as quoted in: Sidney Rogerson, Propaganda in the Next War (Foreword to the second edition 2001), originally published in 1938.

    Hitler and the National Socialists, who came to power in 1933, thwarted the international banking cartel by issuing their own money. … Within two years, the unemployment problem had been solved and the country was back on its feet. … According to Canadian researcher Dr. Henry Makow, this may have been a chief reason Hitler had to be stopped: he had sidestepped the international bankers and created his own money.
    ….
    In Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People (1984), Sheldon Emry commented:

    Germany issued debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 and on, accounting for its startling rise from the depression to a world power in 5 years. Germany financed its entire government and war operation from 1935 to 1945 without gold and without debt, and it took the whole Capitalist and Communist world to destroy the German power over Europe and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers. Such history of money does not even appear in the textbooks of public (government) schools today.
    – Web of Debt, Ellen Brown

    “Since the end of the war about 3,000,000 people, mostly women and children and overaged men, have been killed in eastern Germany and south-eastern Europe; about 15,000,000 people have been deported or had to flee from their homesteads and are on the road. About 25 per cent of these people, over 3,000,000 have perished. About 4,000,000 men and women have been deported to eastern Europe and Russia as slaves. It seems that the elimination of the German population of eastern Europe – at least 15,000,000 people – was planned in accordance with decisions made at Yalta. Churchill had said to Mikolajczyk when the latter protested during the negotiations at Moscow against forcing Poland to incorporate eastern Germany: “Don’t mind the five or more million Germans. Stalin will see to them. You will have no trouble with them: they will cease to exist.”
    – Quoted by Sen. Homer Capehart in speech before U.S. Senate, Feb. 5, 1946.

    Onassis was an extremely close friend of Winston Churchill. The Freemason Winston Churchill is a descendent of a family that has been part of the elite that have secretly run the world. Winston Churchill on several occasions told Onassis that the only one he could trust in W.W. II was Joseph Stalin. (This is a far cry from the picture given in history books.) Winston Churchill spent a great deal of time on Onassis’s yacht Christina. Onassis was also friendly with Winston Churchill’s friend of Bernard Baruch. It was Bernard Baruch who convinced Winston Churchill to join the Illuminati conspiracy. He asked Churchill to come watch something important in NY in 1929, and then he showed Churchill how they could destroy the Stock Market. That show of power brought Churchill on board.
    Bloodlines of the Illuminati  8. Onassis

    Holocaust over Dresden, known as the Florence of the North. Dresden was a hospital city for wounded soldiers. Not one military unit, not one anti-aircraft battery was deployed in the city. Together with the 600,000 refugees from Breslau, Dresden was filled with nearly 1.2 million people. Churchill had asked for “suggestions how to blaze 600,000 refugees”. He wasn’t interested how to target military installations 60 miles outside of Dresden. More than 700,000 phosphorus bombs were dropped on 1.2 million people. One bomb for every 2 people. The temperature in the centre of the city reached 1600o centigrade. More than 260,000 bodies and residues of bodies were counted. But those who perished in the centre of the city can’t be traced. Appr. 500,000 children, women, the elderly, wounded soldiers and the animals of the zoo were murdered in one night.

Ex-IAEA Chief: Iran Does Not Have Nuclear Weapons!

  • RussiaToday:  (emphasis mine)
    Nothing can stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, but the country does not have them yet, and has probably stopped trying to make them. That’s according to  Hans Blix, former Chief of International Atomic Energy Agency, who headed the organization from 1981 to 1997. Blix also argued,  threats by hawks in Israel and the US will not succeed in scaring the Iranians from their present course.

Stephen Lendman: Bankers Rule the World, The Network of Global Corporate Control !

  • The world is ruled by a Satanic cabal, seed of the serpent, European Black Nobility … the Illuminati. They key to their power lies in their ownership of the fiat currency/monetary system. They owned and control practically all central banks of the world. They can create gobs of money out of thin air for themselves and nobody will know. These Illuminist banks are only answerable to themselves. Using the money created out of thin air, they buy up politicians and governments. The Satanic bloodlines own most of the major corporations of this world. They control/own the MSM, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Food and Chemical Companies, MIC, Music Inc, Hollywood … etc.
  • The 4th world empire is different from all other empires before. It is a corporate feudal system. It is fascism: the merger of corporations and state. Where large banks/MNCs have largely taken over governments and countries. If governments do not bow to these large banks, the Illuminists will crush the country economically via MNCs, socially via the corporate MSM, financially … and finally via wars/MIC. It is a feudal system where the Illuminist elites ruling class controls society, the middle class is destroyed and only a serf class remains.

    Daniel 7:23 (New King James Version)
    23 “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.

    Bankers Rule the World, The Network of Global Corporate Control !
    By: Stephen_Lendman, http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/
    Bankers rule the world. A new Swiss Federal Institute of Technology study says so. Written by Stefania Vitali, James Glattfelder and Stefano Battiston, it’s titled “The network of global corporate control,” saying:


    “We find that transnational corporations from a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic ‘super-entity’ that raises new important issues both for researches and policy makers.”

    The study says 147 powerful companies control an inordinate amount of economic activity – about 40%. Among the top 50, 45 are financial firms. They include Barclays PLC (called most influential), JPMorgan Chase, UBS, and other familiar and less known names.

    Twenty-four companies are US-based, followed by eight in Britain, five in France, four in Japan, and Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands with two each. Canada has one. Moreover, “top ranked” companies “hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth.” As a result, they have enormous influence over political, financial, and economic activity.

    In his book titled, “When Corporations Rule the World,” David Korten said they’re able to transfer enormous amounts of power, wealth and resources from public to private hands with government complicity. Money power and concentrated wealth in few hands especially harm humanity. “These forces have transformed” financial institutions and other corporate predators “into instruments of a market tyranny that is extending its reach across the planet like a cancer, colonizing ever more of the planet’s living spaces, destroying livelihoods, displacing people, rendering democratic institutions impotent, and feeding on life in an insatiable quest for money” and profits as a be and end all. Only bottom line priorities and market dominance matter, not human welfare, environmental sanity, peace, equity and justice.

    Transnational giants are the dominant institution of our time – especially financial ones with money power control of everything. They decide who governs and how, who serves on courts, what laws are enacted, and whether or not wars are waged. Corporate dominance, especially financial power, and democratic values are incompatible.

    They operate ruthlessly as private tyrannies. They’re predators. We’re prey, and every day we’re eaten alive. They do it because they can, and in America by mandate. Publicly owned US corporations, including financial ones, must   serve shareholders by maximizing equity value through higher profits. They do it by exploiting nations, people and resources ruthlessly.

    Social responsibility doesn’t matter. Neither does being worker-friendly, a good citizen, or friend of the earth. Bottom line priorities alone matter. Failure to pursue fiduciary responsibilities means possible dismissal or shareholder lawsuits. Yet nothing in America’s Constitution or statute laws endow corporations with their rights. They usurped them by co-opting Washington, the nation’s courts, state capitals, and city halls.

    As a result, over half the world’s largest economies are corporations. Financial ones controlling the power of money are most dominant. Corporate personhood enhanced their power, yet imagine. Although corporations aren’t human, they can live forever, change their identity, reside in many places globally, can’t be imprisoned for wrongdoing, and can transform themselves into new entities for any reason.

    They have the same rights and protections as people without the   responsibilities. As a result, they operate freely unrestrained, especially   financial giants controlling the power of money at the public’s expense. Beginning in the late 1960s, financialization grew more dominant. Economic control began shifting from industry to finance. Corporations are now seen as bundles of assets, the more liquid the better. A new monopoly finance   capitalism developed to exploit it.

    FIRE sector (finance, insurance, and real estate) predators capitalized. Casino capitalism gained prominence. Today it thrives. Major players took advantage, profiting hugely from speculation, chicanery and fraud.

    A burgeoning financial superstructure gained a life of its own. Today it’s omnipotent, especially in America and Europe. Their business model involves grabbing everything that smells money, no matter what harm is caused. Money doesn’t buy everything, but it buys enough influence to matter. The smartest guys in the room take advantage, buying politicians like toothpaste. Democracy’s just a figure of speech.

    Only wealth and power matter. Enough of them turned financial giants into monsters. Whatever they want, they get, including the right to operate freely outside the law, manipulate markets, bilk investors, strip-mine nations and people for profit, and get bailed out at public expense if overreach.

    Under Obama and European leaders, the worst of bad practices flourish. Foxes guard the henhouse. Inmates run the asylum. Regulators don’t regulate. Investigations aren’t conducted. High-level criminal fraud gets wink and nod approval. Nothing is done to curb it.

    Nor do public considerations matter nor is sustained low inflation long-term growth pursued as long as bankers get paid. Today, it’s issue one in America and troubled Eurozone countries.
