My Vision of the Destruction of America By A. A. Allen July 4, 1954 Atop the Empire State Building
As I stood atop the Empire State Building, I could see the Statue of Liberty, illuminating the gateway to the new world. Here, spread before me like an animated map, is an area 60 or 80 miles in diameter. I was amazed that the Spirit of the Lord should so move me, there atop the Empire State building. Why should I feel such a surge of His Spirit and power there?
Giant Telescope
Suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord. It was as clear and as distinct as a voice could be. It seemed to come from the very midst of the giant telescope; but when I looked at the telescope, I knew it hadn't come from there, but directly from Heaven. The voice said, 2 CHRONICLES 16:9, "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou has done foolishly; therefore, from henceforth thou shalt have wars." Immediately when I heard the voice of God, I knew this was a quotation of scripture; but never before had a thing come to me so forcibly by the power of the Spirit.
Automatic Clock
The ticking of the telescope stopped. The man before me had used up his dime's worth. As he stepped away, I knew that I was next. As I stepped to the telescope and dropped in my dime, immediately the ticking started again. This ticking was an automatic clock which would allow me to use the telescope for a limited time only. As I swung the telescope to the north, suddenly the Spirit of God came upon me in a way that I had never thought of before. Seemingly, in the Spirit I was entirely caught away. I knew that the telescope itself had nothing to do with the distance which I was suddenly enabled to see, for I seemed to see things far beyond the range of the telescope, even on a bright, clear day. It was simply that God had chosen this time to reveal these things to me, for as I looked through the telescope, it was not Manhattan Island that I saw, but a far larger view.
North American Continent
That morning much of the view was impaired by fog; but suddenly as the Spirit of the Lord came upon me, the fog seemed to clear until it seemed that I could see for thousands of miles, but that which I was looking upon was not Manhattan Island. It was all of the North American continent spread out before me as a map is spread upon a table. It was not the East River and the Hudson River that I saw on either side, but the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans; and instead of the Statue of Liberty standing there in the bay on her small island, I saw her standing far out in the Gulf of Mexico. She was between me and the United States. I suddenly realized that the telescope had nothing to do with what I was seeing but that it was a vision coming directly from God; and to prove this to myself, I took my eyes away from the telescope so that I was no longer looking through the lens, but the same scene remained before me.
Great Cities
There, clear and distinct, lay all the North American continent with all its great cities. To the north lay the Great Lakes. Far to the northeast was New York City. I could see Seattle and Portland far to the northwest. Down the west coast there were San Francisco and Los Angeles. Closer in the foreground lay New Orleans at the center of the Gulf Coast area. I could see the great towering ranges of the Rocky Mountains and trace with my eye the Continental Divide. All this and more I could see spread out before me as a great map upon a table.
Gigantic Hand
As I looked, suddenly from the sky I saw a giant hand reach down. That gigantic hand was reaching out toward the Statue of Liberty. In a moment her gleaming torch was torn from her hand, and in it instead was placed a cup; and I saw protruding from that great cup a giant sword, shining as if a great light had been turned upon its glistening edge. Never before had I seen such a sharp, glistening, dangerous sword. It seemed to threaten all the world. As the great cup was placed in the hand of the Statue of Liberty, I heard these words, "Thus saith the Lord of hosts, drink ye and be drunken and spew and fall and rise no more because of the sword which I will send." As I heard these words, I recognized them as a quotation from Jeremiah 25:27. I was amazed to hear the Statue of Liberty speak out in reply, "I WILL NOT DRINK!" Then as the voice of the thunder, I heard again the voice of the Lord saying, "Ye shall certainly drink" (Jeremiah 25:28). Then suddenly the giant hand forced the cup to the lips of the Statue of Liberty, and she became powerless to defend herself. The mighty hand of God forced her to drink every drop from the cup. As she drank the bitter dregs, these were the words that I heard: "Should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts" (Jeremiah 27:29)
War, , Destruction
When the cup was withdrawn from the lips of the Statute of Liberty, I noticed the sword was missing from the cup, which could mean but one thing. THE CONTENTS OF THE CUP HAD BEEN COMPLETELY CONSUMED! I knew that the sword merely typified war, , and destruction, which is no doubt on the way. Then as one drunken on too much wine, I saw the Statue of Liberty become unsteady on her feet and begin to stagger and to lose her balance. I saw her splashing in the gulf, trying to regain her balance. I saw her stagger again and again and fall to her knees. As I saw her desperate attempts to regain her balance and rise to her feet again, my heart was moved as never before with compassion for her struggles; but as she staggered there in the gulf, once again I heard these words: "Drink ye and be drunken and spew and fall and rise no more because of the sword which I will send among you" (Jeremiah 25:37).
As I watched, I wondered if the Statue of Liberty would ever be able to regain her feet, if she would ever stand again; and as I watched, it seemed that with all her power she struggled to rise and finally staggered to her feet again and stood there swaying drunkenly. I felt sure that at any moment she would fall again, possibly never to rise. I seemed overwhelmed with a desire to reach out my hand to keep her head above water, for I knew that if she ever fell again, she would drown there in the gulf. "Thou shalt not be afraid for the by night, nor for the arrow that flyeth by day, nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday" (Psalms 91:5-6).
Black Cloud Rising
Then as I watched, another amazing thing was taking place. Far to the northwest, just out over Alaska, a huge, black cloud was arising. As it rose, it was as black as night. It seemed to be in the shape of a man's head. As it continued to arise, I observed two light spots in the black cloud. It rose further, and a gaping hole appeared. I could see that the black cloud was taking the shape of a skull, for now the huge, white, gaping mouth was plainly visible. Finally, the head was complete. Then the shoulders began to appear; and on either side, long, black arms.
Skeleton Destroys Multitudes
It seemed that what I saw was the entire North American continent, spread out like a map upon a table with this terrible skeleton-formed cloud arising from behind the table. It rose steadily until the form was visible down to the waist. At the waist the skeleton seemed to bend toward the United States, stretching forth a hand toward the east and one toward the west, one toward New York and one toward Seattle. As the awful form stretched forward, I could see that its entire attention seemed to be focused upon the United States, overlooking Canada at least for the time being. As I saw the horrible black cloud in the form of a skeleton bending toward America, bending from the waist over, reaching down toward Chicago and out toward both coasts, I knew its one interest was to destroy the multitudes.
Mortal Agony
As I watched in horror, the great black cloud stopped just above the Great Lakes region and turned its face toward New York City. Then out of the horrible, great gaping mouth began to appear wisps of white vapor which looked like smoke, as a cigarette smoker would blow puffs of smoke from his mouth. These whitish vapors were being blown toward New York City. The smoke began to spread until it had covered all the eastern part of the United States. Then the skeleton turned to the west and out of the horrible mouth and nostrils came another great puff of white smoke. This time it was blown in the direction of the west coast. In a few moments' time the entire West Coast and Los Angeles area were covered with its vapors.
Then toward the center came a third great puff. As I watched, St. Louis and Kansas City were enveloped in its white vapors. Then on they came toward New Orleans. Then on they swept until they reached the Statue of Liberty where she stood staggering drunkenly in the blue waters of the gulf. As the white vapors began to spread around the head of the statue, she took in but one gasping breath and then began to cough as though to rid her lungs of the horrible vapors she had inhaled. One could readily discern by the coughing that those white vapors had seared her lungs. What were these white vapors? Could they signify bacteriological warfare or nerve gas that could destroy multitudes of people in a few moments' time? Then I heard the voice of God as He spoke again: "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty and maketh it waste and turneth it upside-down and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her ; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied and utterly spoiled, for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away. The world languisheth and fadeth away. The haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant; therefore, hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate; therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men left" (Isaiah 24:1-6)
As I watched, the coughing grew worse. It sounded like a person about to cough out his lungs. The Statue of Liberty was moaning and groaning. She was in mortal agony. The pain must have been terrific, as again and again she tried to clear her lungs of those horrible white vapors. I watched her there in the gulf as she staggered, clutching her lungs and her breast with her hands. Then she fell to her knees. In a moment she gave one final cough, made a last desperate effort to rise from her knees, and then fell face forward into the waters of the gulf and lay still as . Tears ran down my face as I realized that she was ! Only the lapping of the waves, splashing over her body which was partly under the water and partly out of the water, broke the stillness.
"A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness, yea, and nothing shall escape them". Screaming of Sirens Suddenly the silence was shattered by the screaming of sirens. The sirens seemed to scream, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!"
Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed to be everywhere to the north, the south, the east, and the west. There seemed to be multitudes of sirens; and as I looked, I saw people everywhere running, but it seemed none of them ran more than a few paces, and then they fell. And even as I had seen the Statue of Liberty struggling to regain her poise and balance and finally falling for the last time to die on her face, I now saw millions of people falling in the streets, on the sidewalks, struggling. I heard their screams for mercy and help. I heard their horrible coughing as though their lungs had been seared with fire. I heard the moanings and groanings of the doomed and the dying. As I watched, a few finally reached shelters, but only a few ever got to the shelters.
Above the moaning and the groaning of the dying multitudes, I heard these words: "A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth, for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations. He will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth, and the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground" (Jeremiah 25:31-33).
Rocket Missile Attacks
Then suddenly I saw from the Atlantic and from the Pacific and out of the Gulf rocket-like objects that seemed to come up like fish leaping out of the water. High into the air they leaped, each headed in a different direction, but every one toward the United States. On the ground the sirens screamed louder, and up from the ground I saw similar rockets beginning to ascend. To me these appeared to be interceptor rockets although they arose from different points all over the United States; however, none of them seemed to be successful in intercepting the rockets that had risen from the ocean on every side. These rockets finally reached their maximum height, slowly turned over and fell back toward the earth in defeat. Then suddenly the rockets which had leaped out of the oceans like fish all exploded at once. The explosion was ear-splitting. The next thing which I saw was a huge ball of fire. The only thing I have ever seen which resembled the thing I saw in my vision was the picture of the explosion of the H-bomb somewhere in the South Pacific. In my vision it was so real that I seemed to feel a searing heat from it.
Widespread Desolation
As the vision spread before my eyes and I viewed the widespread desolation brought about by the terrific explosions, I could not help thinking, While the defenders of our nation have quibbled over what means of defense to use and neglected the only true means of defense faith and dependence upon the true and living God the thing which she greatly feared has come unto her! How true it has proven in Psalms 127:1: Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
Then as the noise of battle subsided, to my ears came this quotation: "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm in my holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand. 2. A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains, a great people and a strong, there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. 3. A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness, yea, and nothing shall escape them. 4. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. 5. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. 6. Before their face the people shall be much pained; all faces shall gather blackness. 7. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war, and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks. 8. Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path; and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. 9. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall; they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. 10. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble; the sun and the moon shall be dark,, and the stars shall withdraw their shining (Joel 2:1-10).
The Silence of
Then the voice was still. The earth, too was silent with the silence of . Then to my ears came another sound a sound of distant singing. It was the sweetest music I had ever heard. There was joyful shouting and sounds of happy laughter. Immediately I knew it was the rejoicing of the saints of God. I looked, and there, high in the heavens, above the smoke and poisonous gases, above the noise of the battle, I saw a huge mountain. It seemed to be of solid rock, and I knew at once that this was the Mountain of the Lord. The sounds of music and rejoicing were coming from a cleft high up in the side of the rock mountain.
Hidden in the Cleft
It was the saints of God who were doing the rejoicing. It was God's own people who were singing and dancing and shouting with joy, safe from all the harm which had come upon the earth, for they were hidden away in the cleft of the rock. There in the cleft they were shut in, protected by a great, giant hand which reached out of the heavens and which was none other than the hand of God, shutting them in until the storm be over passed.

New 'Brains' Allow Military Robots To Think For Themselves

The new 510 PackBot, a favorite bomb disposal robot for military Explosive Ordnance Technicians, will be upgraded with a new 620 Amrel solid-state drive, and thus new functionality, John Breeden II of Government Computing News reports.

Previously, a PackBot with a broken link would sit out on the battlefield, waiting for its operator.

But now, if the robot loses its link, it will "retrace" its steps until it has either returned to its starting point, or the link is restored. This keeps operators from having to approach, of all things, possible Improvised Explosive Devices in order to retrieve their bots.

The robot can also right itself if it "trips," and it can navigate to preset coordinates even in "broken" terrain.

Breeden wrote, "This may seem like a small step, but robots need to learn to walk on their own before they can run. Eventually, and probably not too far in the future, military robots could be deployed to dispose of bombs or guard patrols on their own. It just takes programming to help them interpret and deal with various stimuli."

Researchers have recently been trying to reduce the fingerprint of operators in drone and robotic functions on the battlefield. Scientists and engineers are implementing this sort of "fetch" game with drones as well, hoping to send the flying bots on missions with ony human monitoring, rather than piloting.

Travel without boarding pass

Dubai: Biometric self-boarding, self bag drops and ‘bagtrac’ smartphone applications — a host of new technologies will change the face of air travel in the region.

“Soon you won’t need your boarding pass,” said Andre Oeyen, Director of Biometric Business Development, Government and Security Solutions at SITA, a global air transport communications and information technology major.

Speaking to XPRESS on the sidelines of the ICT Aviation Forum in Dubai on Tuesday, he said: “We are in talks with airlines and airports in the region to launch biometric self-boarding in the first half of 2013.”

However, he did not specify the names of the airlines or airports. He said biometrics is already being used for border management and immigration in Dubai, and if extended to boarding, it will be the next dimension.

Value add

Biometric self-boarding essentially replaces a boarding pass with an iris, face or fingerprint biometric feature.

Currently, passengers are required to get the 2D barcode on their boarding cards scanned at the boarding gate. This is either done by an agent or by the passenger himself where self-service e-gates exist.

“Although such e-gates are fast and convenient, they inherently carry a security risk as they have no way of telling the real identity of the passenger. This is where biometric self-boarding adds value,” said Oeyen.

All a passenger will have to do when he reaches the boarding gate is to look at a camera for two or three seconds. When the iris scanner captures his iris, the person is identified and his boarding details validated automatically. If everything is okay, the gate opens on its own and the passenger proceeds to the plane.

Just as the self-boarding process negates the need for a boarding agent, the self-bag drop will also allow a passenger to check in baggage without the need for an agent.

Although the SITA bag drop facility has an in-built biometric option, initial trials will require a boarding pass.

Passengers will have to self check in at a kiosk where boarding passes and bag tags are printed. They will then need to drop off bags in the self bag drop area. “The passenger scans his 2D boarding pass at the unit which identifies the airline and opens the bag drop application. The check-in information is displayed and the passenger places the bag on the belt. The system scans the bag tag, weighs and measures the bag. If everything is okay, it is then forwarded into the baggage handling system and a bag receipt is issued.”

If the baggage rules are not complied with, the system directs the passenger about what needs to be done.

Another new feature that air travellers can look forward to is the “bagtrac” smartphone application. Users can tap in the number of their bag tag receipt — iPhone users can even scan their barcode — and watch the bag’s journey from departure to arrival and all points in between. They can track their bags from the air as well. Plus, the application will report which carousel the bag will arrive on.


Starbucks Will Change the Way You Pay

The highest-profile test to date to see whether people actually want to pay for things with their phones will roll out next month at Starbucks.

The company announced at its huge confab today for Starbucks store managers that customers will be able to buy their coffee using Square Wallet starting in early November. Unlike Starbucks’ standalone mobile app, the digital equivalent of a Starbucks gift card, Square’s app is tied directly to your credit card and can be used anywhere that takes Square. During the initial launch, Square users will each have a barcode that’s scanned at the checkout counter, though Starbucks says it’s working on ways to make use of Square’s more advanced features down the road, such as an automated location-aware feature that lets customers pay by just saying their names.

Starbucks’ partnership with Square, headed by Twitter inventor Jack Dorsey, is the most prominent deal inked by the mobile-payment startup so far, and has the makings of a bellwether for the pay-with-your-smartphone future. While plenty of retailers already offer ways to pay with your phone, the coffee seller’s embrace of Square suggests broader ambitions. Dorsey believes that his company can create a way to pay so pleasingly superior to credit cards or cash that Square can inspire a paradigm shift. By jumping in with Dorsey, Starbucks is signaling it wants to do for buying a latte what Apple stores have done for buying a computer. They don’t want shopping to be a transaction. They want it to be an experience. (Speaking of Apple, Starbucks also announced customers will be able to pay with Starbucks gift cards using the new iPhone’s Passbook wallet app.)

Dorsey himself has praised Starbucks for its emphasis on the customer experience over the mundane details of buying and selling. “Experience” seems to be the operative term at Starbucks’ “Global Leadership Conference” in Houston, where Dorsey spoke to about 10,000 Starbucks managers, many of whom will undoubtedly serve on the tech support front lines as Square goes live in 7,000 stores across the country. To steel themselves for whatever challenges they face, those managers can take part in the conference’s pièce de résistance, described by the company as a

… nearly 400,000-square-foot immersive ‘Leaders’ Lab’ … that will guide conference participants through a two-hour interactive journey that brings Starbucks mission statement to life by highlighting coffee, customers and community.

Starbucks managers and the barista army they lead have another good reason to up their games as the company pushes its mobile payments strategy. Starting next summer, customers will be able to use their Starbucks apps and Square to tip.


California Gas Stations Shut as Oil Refiners Ration Supplies

Gasoline station owners in the Los Angeles area including Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) are beginning to shut pumps as the state’s oil refiners started rationing supplies and spot prices surged to a record.

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) stopped selling gasoline on the spot, or wholesale, market in Southern California and is allocating deliveries to customers. Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) is also rationing fuel to U.S. West Coast terminal customers. Costco’s outlet in Simi Valley, 40 miles (64 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles, ran out of regular gasoline yesterday and was selling premium fuel at the price of regular.

The gasoline shortage “feels like a hurricane to me, but it’s the West Coast,” Jeff Cole, Costco’s vice president of gasoline, said by telephone yesterday. “We’re obviously extremely disheartened that we are unable to do this, and we’re pulling fuel from all corners of California to fix this.”

Spot gasoline in Los Angeles has surged $1 a gallon this week to a record $1.45 a gallon premium versus gasoline futures traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange, data compiled by Bloomberg show. That’s the highest level for the fuel since at least November 2007, when Bloomberg began publishing prices there. On an outright basis, the fuel has jumped to $4.3929 a gallon.
Prices Jump

Gasoline at the pump gained 8.3 cents to $4.315 a gallon in California yesterday, according to AAA.com, 53.1 cents more than the national average of $3.784. In Los Angeles the price was $4.347. Gasoline futures for November delivery on the Nymex rose 14.34 cents to settle at $2.9429 a gallon, after falling yesterday to a 10-week low. Retail price movements tend to lag behind those of futures.

“Product supply in California has tightened, especially in Southern California, due to refinery outages,” Bill Day, a Valero spokesman at the company’s headquarters in San Antonio, said by e-mail.

Exxon’s Torrance refinery is restoring operations after losing power Oct. 1. Phillips 66 (PSX) is scheduled to perform work on gasoline-making units at its two California refineries this month, two people with knowledge of the schedules said. A Chevron Corp. (CVX) pipeline that delivers crude to Northern California refineries was also shut last month due to elevated levels of chloride in the oil.

San Francisco

Spot California-blend gasoline, or Carbob, in San Francisco surged 30 cents to $1.40 a gallon over futures, also the highest level since at least 2007, at 4:03 p.m. New York time.

Low-P, a gasoline station in Calabasas, California, 30 miles west of Los Angeles, stopped selling unleaded gasoline Oct. 2 and ran out of high-octane and medium-octane fuel yesterday, John Ravi, the station’s owner, said by phone yesterday. Ravi said he posted an “Out of Gasoline” sign on each pump and took down the prices outside his shop.

“I can get gas, but it’s going to cost me $4.90 a gallon, and I can’t sell it here for $5,” Ravi said. “If you come here right now, I’ve got some diesel left. That’s all. My market is open, but no gas.”

“We’re going to start shutting pumps Friday,” Sam Krikorian, owner of Quality Auto Repair inNorth Hollywood, said by phone yesterday. “Gas is costing me almost $4.75 a gallon with taxes. There’s no sense in staying open. The profit margins are so low it’s not worth it.”

’Squeeze is On’

“The squeeze is on, and people are doing desperate things,” Bob van der Valk, an independent petroleum industry analyst in Terry, Montana, said by e-mail yesterday. “The mom- and-pop gas stations are having to close down from either not being able to obtain gasoline from their regular distributor or cannot afford the break-even price of almost $5 per gallon.”

Costco is working on a plan to alert its members as gasoline runs out at the company’s stores “so customers don’t have to guess where to go,” Cole said. The company will sell whatever premium gasoline it has stored for regular gasoline prices wherever supplies run out, he said.

“Costco is a membership warehouse club with a relationship based on trust,” he said. “We’re not delivering what the members asked us to deliver, and that’s not acceptable to us. So we’re doing whatever we can to fix it.”

Short-Term Problem

Van der Valk called the price surge a “a short-term problem.” Wholesale costs should start falling as Exxon’s refinery returns to normal operations and other plants finish maintenance.

The California Independent Oil Marketers Association, a Sacramento-based group that represents wholesale and retail fuel marketers, asked the state yesterday to expedite a waiver that would allow refiners to produce and sell winter-grade fuel, Jay McKeeman, a spokesman for the association, said by telephone yesterday.

“Everybody is concerned about what might happen,” he said. “The real question is: How long is this going to last and what can the state do?”

California’s summer-blend fuel requirements are in effect in Southern California until Oct. 31. The Reid Vapor Pressure, or RVP, limits are lifted in other areas of the state as early as Sept. 30.

The state Air Resources Board and Energy Commission are evaluating fuel supplies and haven’t decided on the waiver, Dave Clegern, a spokesman for the air board in Sacramento, said by e- mail.

‘Losing Money’

The independent gas station owners are typically the first to run out of fuel and shut their pumps when spot prices surge because they often lack long-term contracts to buy from fuel suppliers at set prices, McKeeman said.

Jim Li said yesterday that he may stop selling gasoline at his independent station, Best Auto Care, in San Francisco. He’s charging $4.59 a gallon for the fuel, “and I’m still losing money,” he said.

Wholesale prices are “going up so quick that there’s not even any margin to make any money at all,” he said by telephone.

California-grade, or CARB, diesel in Los Angeles climbed 0.5 cent to 16.5 cents a gallon above heating oil futures on the Nymex. The fuel in San Francisco was unchanged at a premium of 17 cents a gallon versus futures.

Jet fuel in Los Angeles increased 0.37 cent to a premium of 11.25 cents a gallon against futures, the highest since Sept. 19.


Dragon Flood Eugenics

Joseph Herrin (10-02-2012)

Eugenics Congress Logo

The principles by which Satan and his disciples operate are hidden in plain sight. Anyone with the inclination can discover reams of information about the U.S. government’s propaganda machine, the Committee on Public Information, which was utilized during World War I to gain the cooperation of the American public. There are also existent today books by pioneers in the field of modern public relations that lay out clearly the rationale behind this field of labor and the practices by which the public might be induced to align with the will of their unseen masters. The writings of men such as Walter Lippman, Ivy G. Lee, and Edward Bernays, provide a window through which one might view the practice of government and corporate interests that is everywhere practiced today.

One thought common among these men, which is apparent in their writings, is that they believed there is an elite class of mankind who are superior to the masses. This small minority are viewed as superior to the average man, and uniquely qualified to exercise governance over others.

Walter Lippman, who was the dean of American journalists, is the man who invented the phrase manufacture of consent. He described the manufacture of consent as a self-conscious art and a regular organ of popular government... The reason is, again, the stupidity of the average man. The common interests, he said, very largely elude public opinion entirely, and they can be managed only by a specialized class whose personal interests reach beyond the locality.
[Source: Noam Chomsky, http://www.chomsky.info/talks/19890315.htm]

The world informed by “public relations” will be but a “smoothly functioning society,” where all of us are guided imperceptibly throughout our lives by a benign elite of rational manipulators...

Lippman had arrived at the bleak view that “the democratic El Dorado” is impossible in modern mass society, whose members - by and large incapable of lucid thought or clear perception... - were not equipped to make decisions or engage in rational discourse.
[Source: Introduction to Propaganda, Mark Crispin Miller]

An universal thought among these men was that of an elite group of illuminated men who existed and stood out from among the rabble of mankind as the capstone rests atop a pyramid. Over and over, the statements of these men reveal a conceit present in their minds. This is not surprising, for this was the same failing present in Lucifer when he transgressed and wanted to raise his throne above that of others.

I Timothy 3:2-6
An overseer, then, must be above reproach... and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil.

It is to be considered that the men who pioneered the modern field of public relations, or propaganda, developed their theories and practices during a period of time when the field of Eugenics had gained international popularity. Eugenics was described as “the self-direction of human evolution.” One of the base principles upon which Eugenics rested is that there are both superior and inferior human beings. Intelligence, physical ability, natural beauty, morality (criminal behavior, or the lack thereof),and many other factors were assessed to determine the value of a human life.

Most Americans do not understand the extent to which such thinking influenced both government policies and society in the United States in the early twentieth century. It is not uncommon to hear of such elitist doctrines when the subject of Nazi Germany and Aryan superiority is discussed. Yet, few discern how the very same elitist beliefs had infiltrated and spread throughout the United States prior to the war. In fact, Adolph Hitler obtained many of his ideas from, and expressed admiration for, many of the leaders of the Eugenics movement in America.

NAZI Eugenics Poster

The above poster reads “Wir stehen nicht allein” (We do not stand alone). This graphic depicts a Nazi propaganda poster from 1936, supporting Nazi Germany's 1933 Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring (a compulsory sterilization law). The couple is in front of a map of Germany, surrounded by the flags of nations which had enacted similar legislation. The flags on the left, of which the top one is for the United States, indicate nations that had enacted similar legislation. The flags on the right and bottom were of nations considering such legislation.

Does it surprise you that America was a world leader in the field of Eugenics, and that her government had passed laws, and established clinics, to both promote and enforce the principles of Eugenics. I would not be surprised to hear that you were taught nothing about the forced sterilization of Americans who were deemed unfit for breeding in your history lessons.

American Eugenics Clinic Bulletin Board

The various posters on this board read:

• This light flashes every 15 seconds. Every 15 seconds $100 of your money goes for the care of persons with bad heredity, such as the insane, feeble-minded, criminals, & other defectives.

• This light flashes every 16 seconds. Every 16 seconds a person is born in the United States.

• This light flashes every 7-1/2 minutes. Every 7-1/2 minutes a high grade person is born in the United States that will have the ability to do creative work& be fit for leadership. About 4% of Americans come within this class.

This last statement in particular, reveals the close correlation between the tenets of Eugenics and the mind of the propagandist. It was believed by both that only a small minority were fit to be leaders of mankind. Eugenics spread rapidly throughout the United States prior to World War II.

Some states sterilized "imbeciles" for much of the 20th century. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the 1927 Buck v. Bell case that the state of Virginia could sterilize those it thought unfit. Although compulsory sterilization is now considered an abuse of human rights, Buck v. Bell was never overturned, and Virginia did not repeal its sterilization law until 1974. The most significant era of eugenic sterilization was between 1907 and 1963, when over 64,000 individuals were forcibly sterilized under eugenic legislation in the United States...

After the eugenics movement was well established in the United States, it spread to Germany. California eugenicists began producing literature promoting eugenics and sterilization and sending it overseas to German scientists and medical professionals. By 1933, California had subjected more people to forceful sterilization than all other U.S. states combined. The forced sterilization program engineered by the Nazis was partly inspired by California's.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped develop and fund various German eugenics programs, including the one that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.

Upon returning from Germany in 1934, where more than 5,000 people per month were being forcibly sterilized, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe bragged to a colleague:

"You will be interested to know that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought . . . I want you, my dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people."

Eugenics researcher Harry H. Laughlin often bragged that his Model Eugenic Sterilization laws had been implemented in the 1933 Nuremberg racial hygiene laws. In 1936, Laughlin was invited to an award ceremony at Heidelberg University in Germany (scheduled on the anniversary of Hitler's 1934 purge of Jews from the Heidelberg faculty), to receive an honorary doctorate for his work on the "science of racial cleansing". Due to financial limitations, Laughlin was unable to attend the ceremony and had to pick it up from the Rockefeller Institute. Afterwards, he proudly shared the award with his colleagues, remarking that he felt that it symbolized the "common understanding of German and American scientists of the nature of eugenics."

After 1945, however, historians began to attempt to portray the US eugenics movement as distinct and distant from Nazi eugenics.

In 1923 Popular Science Monthly featured an article on Eugenics.

This astonishing article written by Arthur Capper, a U.S. Senator from Kansas, includes the following words.

The average American family of today is the result of haphazard mating. Men and women marry with little scientific thought as to their physical and mental fitness for bearing and rearing children. When the children come they too often are brought up in the same haphazard fashion in which the parents chose each other. It is any wonder that the number of mentally and physically unfit increases?...

Uniform state and national marriage laws promise to do much toward solving this problem, but we must rely upon education as the greatest force for obtaining the maximum benefit from such laws.

Sweeping reforms cannot be accomplished overnight. Only through conscientious, painstaking work can the standards of the American family be raised.

The entire article can be read at the link above.

As the world history books used in American public schools relate the atrocities of World War II when the NAZI party applied the principles of Eugenics with nationalistic zeal, it is never mentioned the role that American Eugenicists played in shaping NAZI doctrine. The expression “final solution” which Hitler used to describe the annihilation of entire races and groups of people was not coined by the Germans. The expression had been used for years in America as a reference to the forced sterilization, and euthanasia of “defectives.”

One of the methods that was commonly suggested to get rid of "inferior" populations was euthanasia. A 1911 Carnegie Institute report mentioned euthanasia as one of its recommended "solutions" to the problem of cleansing society of unfit genetic attributes. The most commonly suggested method was to set up local gas chambers. However, many in the eugenics movement did not believe that Americans were ready to implement a large-scale euthanasia program, so many doctors had to find clever ways of subtly implementing eugenic euthanasia in various medical institutions. For example, a mental institution in Lincoln, Illinois fed its incoming patients milk infected with tuberculosis (reasoning that genetically fit individuals would be resistant), resulting in 30-40% annual death rates. Other doctors practiced eugenicide through various forms of lethal neglect.

In the 1930s, there was a wave of portrayals of eugenic "mercy killings" in American film, newspapers, and magazines. In 1931, the Illinois Homeopathic Medicine Association began lobbying for the right to euthanize "imbeciles" and other defectives. The Euthanasia Society of America was founded in 1938.

Overall, however, euthanasia was marginalized in the U.S., motivating people to turn to forced segregation and sterilization programs as a means for keeping the "unfit" from reproducing.

Repeatedly one notes names such as Rockefeller and Carnegie being behind the push to implement an Eugenics program in America. The super rich see themselves as superior to the rest of mankind. They believe they alone are qualified to judge which people have value and which do not. If you do a search of the Internet you will find that many of the wealthiest men in America, and throughout the world, are promoters of population limits, and are seeking ways to decrease world population. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have both committed billions to reducing world population, Buffet being a big supporter of Planned Parenthood. Bill Gates considers Warren Buffet to be a personal mentor, and likely had some influence upon Gate’s decision to contribute to Planned Parenthood, as well as serve on its board of directors.



After the atrocities of World War II became known, the practice of Eugenics in America suffered a great blow. Even though various states continued to practice forced sterilization into the 1960s, the practice of Eugenics was forced into hiding. In some instances it simply disguised itself as something else.

One of the chief proponents of Eugenics in America was Margaret Sanger. Many recognize her as being the founder of Planned Parenthood. It was formerly called The American Birth Control League. If any doubt that the ultimate goals of Planned Parenthood are other than the goals of Eugenics, to lower the number of undesirables in the population, they need only look at where the majority of Planned Parenthood’s clinics are located. They are in areas of high populations of poor and ethnic races.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, more than 43 percent of African-American pregnancies end in abortion. Although African-Americans represent only 12 percent of the American population, they account for almost 35 percent of all abortions. In Mississippi, for example, while African-Americans represent only 37 percent of the population, they account for 73 percent of the state’s abortions. More than 78 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion centers are in or near minority communities.

Abortions are much more common among minority women in the U.S. In 2000-2001, the rates among black and Hispanic women were 49 per 1,000 and 33 per 1,000, respectively, vs. 13 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic white women.

Margaret Sanger is championed as a pioneer of women’s reproductive rights. The truth is that she was a racist, a bigot, and held to abominable views about the sanctity of human life. Following are a few of her own statements.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities (Sounds like a description of Barack Obama). The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

Also described in Linda Gordon's Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976]

Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.

I think you must agree ... that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims (sounds like ‘final solution’) of eugenics... Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator.

As an advocate of birth control I wish... to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feebleminded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation.

On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.

People of God, do you see the deep work of deception that has been done? Millions of black and minority women in America flock to Planned Parenthood clinics that have been strategically located in their neighborhoods. They are told that Planned Parenthood cares for them, is a champion of their freedoms, and a supporter of their reproductive rights. Yet, the actual truth is that this organization was founded to remove from the population those who were deemed by its founder to be “unfit” and “inferior classes.” What great cunning Satan has exercised to deceive the nations! It is astonishing to behold.

No one should believe that people of wealth like the Rockefellers and Carnegies, or people with a Malthusian worldview such as Margaret Sanger, have repented of their aims and beliefs. The list of donors to Planned Parenthood read like a Who’s Who of the rich and famous. Furthermore, the aims of a global elite are inscribed in stone on a megalith that was dedicated on March 22, 1980 outside Elberton, Georgia. This monument is known as The Georgia Guidestones.

Georgia Guidestones

At the top of the Georgia Guidestones are the words, “Let these be guidestones to an age of reason.” This expression occurs on each of the four sides of the capstone, written in Babylonian Cuneiform, Sanskrit, Greek, and Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

On the four massive granite pillars are inscribed ten guiding principles, or ten commandments. Some have referred to these as the ten commandments of the New Age Movement. They could be described as the ten commandments of the New World Order, or the ten guiding principles Satan has delivered to mankind. This is a blasphemous mockery of the ten commandments Yahweh delivered to Moses on tablets of stone. Following are the ten commandments found on the Georgia Guidestones.











These commandments can be broken down into four categories. (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality. Consider the first two of these commandments:



These words reveal that the principles of Eugenics continue to be held as sacred to the ruling elite. What I would impress upon you is that there is an extremely wealthy, and immensely powerful, yet invisible cabal of men and women who as the apostles of Satan are seeking to bring forth a New World Order according to Luciferian principles. These ones have always seen themselves as superior to the rest of mankind, and believe they alone are fit to rule.

Democracy is a deception. Democracy is being promulgated throughout the world because the invisible powers have discovered how to deceive and manipulate the masses to do their bidding. The masses believe they are actively engaged in establishing policy, and directing the course of their nations, but this is mere delusion. The truth is that an elite have been guiding the course of national policy quite apart from any consideration of the mass of humanity.

These same ones will soon foment wars, create famines, sow pestilence, and implement a long planned design to reduce world population by the death of billions of people. The Bible affirms that billions will die in the great tribulation of the last days.

Matthew 24:21-22
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.

Satan is no lover of mankind. He comes with great wrath to kill, steal and destroy.

Revelation 12:12
Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.

With great cunning Satan will induce the nations to wage war upon one another. He will by fear and deception persuade men to receive vaccines that will lead to sterility, sickness, and death. Already, huge international companies are engineering seeds that will not reproduce, and are genetically modifying crops that will lead to cancers and failing health for millions. All the while they will trumpet how very good these things are for mankind.

People of God, I would not trust a man such as Bill Gates who would use his immense wealth to decrease the number of mankind. He pretends to be a philanthropist, but I believe he will in the end be revealed to be a disciple of Thomas Mathus, the father of the depopulation movement.

All children who are born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room be made for them by the death of grown persons…. Therefore … we should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality; and if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use. “Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor, we should encourage contrary habits. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. In the country, we should build our villages near stagnant pools, and particularly encourage settlement in all marshy and unwholesome situations. But above all we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases; and restrain those benevolent, but much mistaken men, who have thought they are doing a service to mankind by protecting schemes for the total extirpation of particular disorders.
[Source: Thomas Malthus, from which we derive the expression “a Malthusian catastrophe.”]

Margaret Sanger agreed with Malthus. She believed that true philanthropy was misguided. She condemned those charities that sought to aid the “unfit” members of society.

Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying... demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism... [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant ... We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.
[Source: Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on "The Cruelty of Charity," pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition]

The pride and conceit of Satan always leads to a despising of mankind. The saints of God need to be wise as serpents as they walk through this world. There are many, who like Satan presenting the forbidden fruit to Eve, pretend to be concerned for mankind’s welfare. Yet death is in their hands.

Hundreds of Arabs assault guards at Temple Mount

Following the conclusion of Friday prayers at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, hundreds of Arabs threw stones at security guards in the area. Police charged through the Mughrabi Gate in the Old City and fired stun grenades to disperse the angry mob.

Unconfirmed Palestinian reports suggested that several people were lightly injured.

Police officials, having restored calm, said that they would arrest some of the stone throwers in the coming days.

Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites of Israel Shmuel Rabinovitch expressed shock following Friday’s violent demonstration, assessing that it was meant to prevent Jewish worshippers from praying in the area during Sukkot. He said that it was up to the police to arrest those who “wish to harm the delicate fabric of the holy sites in the Old City, and to harass worshippers.”

Rabbi Rabinovitch called on the public to continue observing the holiday at the Western Wall.

On Thursday, a confrontation at the Temple Mount plaza led to six arrests as a group of Muslim worshipers threatened Jewish visitors to the site.

According to a police spokesperson, about 30 Muslims began chanting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) and tried to attack a group of Jews who were visiting the site. Police broke up the altercation, and arrested five Arabs and one Jew.

The Temple Mount, holy to both Jews and Muslims, is closely monitored in order to defuse potential tensions between Muslim worshipers and Jewish and international visitors.

The plaza is under the management of the Islamic Wakf, with Israeli police responsible for security. Under Israeli rules aimed at keeping the peace at the volatile site, Jews are allowed to visit but not to worship there.

Powerful CCTV cameras which can track faces from more than half a mile away

Powerful CCTV cameras which can recognise and track faces from more than half a mile away could breach human rights laws, a top Government adviser has warned.

The UK's first surveillance commissioner, Andrew Rennison, has issued a stark warning to the Government by saying that advances in CCTV technology risk turning Britain into a Big Brother society.

He warned of a 'public backlash' unless proper steps were taken to regulate the proliferation of 16-megapixel HD cameras with the potential to pick out a face and then match it against a database of images of wanted people.

Watched: The new CCTV cameras could breach human right's laws due to their advanced technology

Futuristic: This graphic shows how the advanced CCTV technology works

Mr Rennison said the cameras are being rolled out up and down UK cities without members of the public being consulted.

‘The technology has overtaken our ability to regulate it,’ he told the Independent.

‘I'm convinced that if we don't regulate it properly - ie the technological ability to use millions of images we capture - there will be a huge public backlash.

‘It is the Big Brother scenario playing out large. It's the ability to pick out your face in a crowd from a camera which is probably half a mile away.’

Research being carried out into automatic facial recognition technology by the Home Office has achieved a 90 per cent success rate and is still improving, Mr Rennison said.

Big brother: Mr Rennison warns that the high definition cameras' ability to perform facial recognition is an intrusion into the public's privacy. This is a file picture of a Metropolitan Police operations room


There are believed to be around 1.85 million CCTV cameras in the UK
At least 51, 600 CCTV cameras are controlled by local authorities
More than 100,000 cameras are installed in secondary schools and academies in England, Wales and Scotland
More than 200 schools use CCTV in bathrooms and changing rooms
Local authorities have spent 515m on CCTV operations in the past four years
It is thought Britain is home to 20 per cent of the world's population of CCTV cameras
The average Londoner is captured on a CCTV camera more than 300 times a day

He is expected to report back to Parliament with any concerns over how CCTV and automatic number plate recognition systems are being used.

His concerns were today echoed by civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch.

However, the organisation claimed Mr Rennison needed to be given more power from the Government to clampdown on CCTV.

Nick Pickles, director of privacy and civil liberties at the campaign group said: 'The Commissioner is absolutely right to warn about the risks of new CCTV technology.

'However, the Home Office has undermined the Commissioner from the start by giving him absolutely no powers to do anything.

'Proper regulation of CCTV needs someone to have the power to inspect cameras and punish those breaking the law.

If the Home Office is serious about this issue then the surveillance camera commissioner needs proper powers to protect our privacy.'

Support: Civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch also echoed Mr Rennison's concerns. But the organisation claimed he needed to be given more power from the Government to clampdown on CCTV

Concerns: Research being carried out into automatic facial recognition technology by the Home Office has achieved a 90 per cent success rate and is still improving, Mr Rennison said

Mr Rennison called on lawyers to help ensure surveillance techniques remained in line with Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, which protects private and family life.

He told the Independent: ‘I don't want the state to carry on and start pushing the boundaries. Let's have a debate - if the public support it, then fine. ‘

'If the public don't support it, and we need to increase the regulation, then that's what we need to do.'

A Home Office spokesperson said: 'Used properly, CCTV can be a valuable tool in the fight against crime. But for too long the system has grown and developed in the absence of any proper framework or oversight.

'That is why we’ve appointed Andrew Rennison as the Surveillance Camera Commissioner to drive the adoption of a new code of practice. He will empower the public to shine a light on those who operate camera systems in public places, challenging them to show the use of these systems is justified, proportionate and effective.'
