Building a North American Community: Report of the Independent Task Force on the Future of North America
[.pdf, Source: Patriot Portal]

An excerpt:

The Task Force offers a detailed and ambitious set of proposals that build on the recommendations adopted by the three governments at the Texas summit of March 2005. The Task Force’s central recommendation is establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff, and an outer security perimeter.

NOTE: It has long been asserted that the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) plays a powerful, key role in the efforts of the superwealthy to make themselves masters of the entire world. In this report, by a CFR Task Force, they use ambiguous language to mask the fact that they are calling for a dissolution of borders between the USA, Canada, and Mexico (What else is a country, but an "economic and security community" with "an outer security perimeter?"). People who believe this have been framed for years as "conspiracy theorists." However, the evidence speaks for itself. Maybe now you'll understand why the Obama administration refused to close the borders to Mexico, or close the airports to flights from Mexico, when this whole pre-fabricated "Swine Flu" scare began. We were being told that it was killing people, and that we should be altering our own life habits to ensure our safety, but yet the government had the gall to tell us that they weren't going to block access to Mexico because "It's too late. Some cows are already out of the pasture." What the...? If this was a serious illness we would attempt to halt its spread. Unless of course, we had an agreement with another country that we were, in fact, one country. It has also been long said that if you want to know what the US will do next year you should read what the CFR is saying this year. You have been warned.

The New World Order Conspiracy Theory and the Year 2000 Computer Bug

The NWO conspiracy theory holds that the United Nations (UN) will lead a military coup against the nations of the world to form a socialist or One World Government. UN troops, consisting mostly of foreign armies, will commence a military takeover of America. The UN will mainly use foreign troops on American soil because foreigners will have fewer reservations about killing American citizens. U.S. armed
forces will not attempt to stop this invasion by UN troops and, in fact, the U.S. military may be “deputized” as a branch of the UN armed forces. The American military contingent overseas will also play a large part in this elaborate conspiracy theory, as they will be used to help conquer the rest of the world. The rationale for this part of the theory is that American soldiers will also have less qualms about killing foreigners, as opposed to killing their own citizens.

Under this hypothetical NWO/One World Government, the following events are to take place: 1) private property rights and private gun ownership will be abolished; 2) all national, state and local elections will become meaningless, since they will be controlled by the UN; 3) the U.S. Constitution will be supplanted by the UN charter; 4) only approved churches and other places of worship will be permitted to operate and will become appendages of the One World Religion, which will be the only legitimate doctrine of religious beliefs and ethical values; 5) home schooling will be outlawed and all school curriculum will need to be approved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and 6) American military bases and other federal facilities will be used as concentration camps by the UN to confine those patriots, including the militias, who defy the NWO. Other groups beside the UN that are often mentioned as being part of the NWO conspiracy theory are Jews, Communists, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission.

NOTE: In its own words, this is "an FBI strategic assessment of the potential for domestic terrorism in the United States undertaken in anticipation of or response to the arrival of the new millennium." In other words: THIS WAS A REPORT RELEASED PRIOR TO Y2K (i.e., more than 9 years ago), about concerns people had over possible issues that might arise, one of them being the NWO. Look at the issues listed. If you have been reading my posts before today, you will notice that I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT MOST OF THEM *HAPPENING RIGHT NOW*!!! Go back and see for yourself! OR, check out InfoWars, and WorldNetDaily to see for yourself the actual journalism and evidences that have been discovered that these things are happening! Though the FBI may (and I stress "may") not have been aware of the goals of the NWO, it can no longer be denied that these goals have been in place and are now being accomplished.



You Are What You Eat



Not So Sweet: Missing Mercury and High Fructose Corn Syrup
[.pdf, Source: Patriot Portal]

An excerpt:

Just published online in the journal, Environmental Health (http://www.ehjournal.net/
home/), is a science commentary reporting that mercury was found in 9 of 20 samples of commercial high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a common sweetener of foods and beverages. The HFCS came from three different manufacturers.

Mercury is a potent brain toxin... impairing learning abilities and reducing IQ. [S]cience increasingly suggests there may be no “safe” level of exposure to mercury.
And yet for decades an increasingly common ingredient in processed foods, HFCS, has been made using mercury-grade caustic soda.

Caustic soda (also known as sodium hydroxide or lye) and a number of other food industry ingredients are produced in industrial chlorine (chlor-alkali) plants. “Mercury-grade,” ... caustic soda, comes from chlorine plants still using an outdated 19th century technology that relies on the use of mercury.

...What has not been publicly recognized is that mercury cell technology can also contaminate all the food grade chemicals made from it, including caustic soda, as well as hydrochloric acid. It was unrecognized, that is, until the lead author of the Environmental Health study, a longtime environmental investigator of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), thought to look into it.

What she found was that possible mercury contamination of these food chemicals was not common knowledge within the food industry despite the availability of product specification sheets for mercury-grade caustic soda that clearly indicate the presence of mercury (as well as lead, arsenic and other metals)...

Through this public scientist’s initiative, the FDA learned that commercial HFCS was contaminated with mercury. The agency has apparently done nothing to inform consumers of this fact, however, or to help change industry practice.

NOTE: Yes, you read that correctly. Jelly Bellies, fruit snacks and a host of other things you eat have an almost 50% chance of containing mercury. Among other things.



The "Flu"



Department of Defense Implementation Plan for Pandemic Influenza - AUGUST 2006
[.pdf, Source: Patriot Portal]

NOTE: An excerpt:

While DoD ["Department of Defense"] will work to implement all of the tasks assigned in the National Implementation Plan, particular attention will be paid to implementing the tasks that address the following areas in a timely manner. They are: ...

1. Advance International Cooperation. Secure international commitment to transparency, scientific cooperation, rapid reporting of human and animal cases, and sharing of data and viral isolates.

2. Build International Capacity. Provide technical assistance to build veterinary and public health capacity in at-risk countries and to detect and contain animal and human outbreaks of avian influenza, including the development and exercise of preparedness plans.

3. Ensure Rapid Response. Develop USG ["US Government"] capability to respond rapidly, either independently or in support of an international response, to animal or human outbreaks of influenza with pandemic potential for purposes of assessment and containment. Support development and implementation of World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)/World Animal Health Organization (OIE) strategy and capacity for international response and containment of animal and human outbreaks of influenza with pandemic potential and pandemic influenza...

NOTE: Notice the extreme lengths gone to in supporting an "international" response. The WHO ["World Heath Organization"] and the UN ["United Nations"] sure seem to have a large stake in any goings-on. I thought the UN was just a deliberative body, to assist in attempting to solve international disputes, not to police countries during international pandemics... Why is the international community involved with our internal affairs, again?


5. Establish a Border and Transportation Strategy. Develop a comprehensive border and transportation strategy that strikes a balance between efficacy of interventions to limit the spread of disease and the economic and societal consequences, international implications, and operational feasibility of these interventions.

6. Establish Screening Protocols and Implementation Agreements. Establish
arrangements with international partners to limit voluntarily travel and establish screening for travelers from affected areas...

9. Provide Comprehensive Guidance on Community Shielding. Develop for State, local, and tribal partners a template for community containment that builds upon data available from state-of-the art modeling, and scientific understanding of influenza biology and patterns of transmission.

NOTE: Do you notice, yet, the pattern, established in 2006, for dealing with a flu pandemic, that has NOT been followed this time around? It supposedly travels from human to human. But let's not close the borders or restrict flights from Mexico. That would be ridiculous, wouldn't it?

Well, Is Obama a Socialist or Isn't He?

Q. Explain to me why making taxes more balanced and wanting
Universal Healthcare makes Obama a Socialist.

A. Your question can best be answered by dividing it into
multiple parts:

  1. Is Obama making taxes “more balanced?” and is this approach
    a good thing? ? Is this Socialist?

  2. What is Universal Healthcare and why is it good/bad?

  3. Is Obama a Socialist, and, if so, do these things make him so?



1. Is Obama making taxes “more balanced?” and is this approach a
good thing? Is this Socialist?

Some people believe that citizens who make more money than others should be required to pay higher taxes. I am going to assume this refers to Federal Income Tax. This position is taken up entirely upon the premise that these citizens have more money, and upon no other factor. Those holding such an opinion would do well to ask themselves the purpose for which we pay taxes. Is it to provide stable income to the unemployed? No, that is the responsibility of the individual, and it is supplemented by the voluntary charitable giving of private citizens. Is it to pay for government services? According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, “The federal government collects taxes in order to finance various public services.”

It should be noted, however, that according to the film, "America: Freedom to Fascism,” most government services are paid for by taxes other than the Income Tax. This film may be viewed online, for free, at the above link.

If it is indeed the case that our taxes pay for “public services,” what rationale can there be for demanding that citizens with higher earnings pay more than other citizens do, for the same services?

The only truly “balanced” tax system is one in which all citizens pay an equal share, regardless of their income.

Is it “Socialist” to want to “balance” taxes? Consider for a moment that Socialism and Communism are two heads of the same serpent, two means to the same end. In fact, H.G. Wells (Yes, that H. G. Wells!) quit the Fabian Socialists precisely because he felt that the revolutionary (i.e., violent) approach of the Communists was more apt to bring about the change they desired.

Communism and Socialism are both forms of Statism, in which the government is the ultimate authority. Both Communists and Socialists claim the ability to “equalize” society; according to their own words, they intend to do this by eliminating religion, private property, and the family unit. With government as the ultimate authority, they intend to force us all to be equal. The United States of America is a Republic, one that expressly recognizes God as the Ultimate Source of Authority. According to God’s word, we are each to earn our bread by the sweat of our brow (Moses 4:25, Psalms 128:2), and we are to give of our own free will (Isa. 1:17, Luke 11:41, Mosiah 4:16-24).


For Latter-day Saints (“Mormons”), the plan of Socialism should sound familiar: “Our agency, given us through the plan of our Father, is the great alternative to Satan’s plan of force. With this sublime gift, we can grow, improve, progress, and seek perfection. Without agency, none of us could grow and develop by learning from our mistakes and errors and those of others” (James E. Faust, “The Forces That Will Save Us,” Ensign, Jan 2007, 4–9).


2. What is Universal Healthcare and why is it good/bad?

First, note that part of this question is answered above. For one thing, Socialized medicine forces all citizens to subsidize the healthcare of others, many of whom are not required to pay into the system in any way. This is the same reason that healthcare for illegal immigrants is morally wrong.

Growing up in the military, I have experienced socialized healthcare firsthand on military bases around the world. Being part Native American, I have also experienced socialized medicine on reservations and at off-rez clinics and dental offices. The wait is always long. Once, I got sick and missed an appointment. I was told that there was no way to reschedule; I would just have to wait until I heard from them. This took more than 6 months. I was waiting for a root canal.

Quality of service under socialized medicine is also suspect. The socialized medical clinics and dental offices I have been in have provided sub-par work ("The government gave me this job, and with my union, they can never fire me!"), and with crappy customer service, to boot ("There is no competition, so why bother?"). Apparently, this is commonplace with socialized medicine, because Canadians have been coming to America for healthcare for years. Elsewhere, it has been noted, socialist healthcare providers deny healthcare coverage and/or services to individuals that the government feels are not worth the bother. In general, this means the elderly and those with serious illnesses. The Patriot Post recently posted an article that every American should read about this particular facet of socialized medicine: Team ObamaCare: Sanger, Ginsburg and Holdren [Please note: This is a .pdf file]. They address the issue further here [Another .pdf].

The New Conservatives blog also offers up some personal experience with socialized healthcare here: Socialized Medicine is Bad for America.

The Real Barack Obama blog discusses the issue here, including a video snippet from the Glenn Beck show demonstrating how the socialized healthcare system in Massachusetts is way out of control.

This is not that video. But it is awesome:



3. The final question is much easier to answer: Is Obama a
Socialist, and, if so, do these things make him so?

To begin with, these things are not what makes Obama a Socialist. No, he has done that all on his own. To begin with, during the 2008 presidential campaign, our “watchdog” media entirely ignored emerging information about Obama’s past: namely that he was a member of the New Party, a Socialist political party that was disbanded by the Supreme Court because its goals were “unconstitutional.” Secondly, when Obama was asked who Bill Ayers was, during the campaign, he responded that he was “just a guy in [his] neighborhood.” It was subsequently discovered that he has had very close ties with this former terrorist for decades, including business and educational ventures. It has recently been discovered that when Obama was a young man in Hawaii, the church he attended gave money to support Bill Ayers’ Socialist terrorist organization, the Weathermen.

"The Dictatorship of the Proletariat" - A Presidential Competency Test

Compare and... Contrast?



From "The Naked Communist," page 57:

[Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels felt that speeding up the evolution of society towards Communism] could be done in three ways: First, by wiping out the old order. "There is but one way of simplifying, shortening, concentrating the death agony of the old society as well as the bloody labor of the new world's birth - Revolutionary Terror." Second, the representatives of the working class must then set up a Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Joseph Stalin described the things which must be accomplished during this period of the dictatorship:

  1. Completely suppress the old capitalist class.

  2. Create a mighty army of "defense" to be used "for the consolidation of the ties with the proletarians of other lands, and for the development and the victory of the revolution in all countries."

  3. Consolidate the unity of the masses in support of the Dictatorship.

  4. Establish universal socialism by eliminating private property and preparing all mankind for the ultimate adoption of full Communism.



Presidential Competency Test: "How'm I doing?"



1. Am I... completely suppressing the old capitalist class?



Check!



2. Am I... creating a mighty army of "defense" to be used "for the consolidation of the ties with the proletarians of other lands, and for the development and the victory of the revolution in all countries?"

The New World Order / 1984



U.N. to Emerge as Global IRS
NOTE: THIS is what you desperately need to understand! We have been hearing for years that a NWO is in the planning/making. What we have not understood is that it is primarily a FINANCIAL DICTATORSHIP! The Federal Reserve has been dictating the actions and policies of our leaders, and indeed even selecting our leaders themselves, for decades. Our current "financial crisis" was completely fabricated and orchestrated by the Fed, and now they are in the White House. Didya notice that? Yeah.

"Continuity of Government" - A Threat to the Constitution
NOTE: Some extremely credible expert sources, including the son of W. Cleon Skousen, believe that the government is planning a nuclear war that we will suffer greatly from, intentionally, and that THEY will survive from, emerging and claiming the ability to lead us, at which time they will turn is over to the New World Order. They are establishing the financial power and establishment right now, but they need WWIII because most Americans will not give in to a New World Order. See this article to find out other ways Bill Clinton, as one example, has been setting us up for a Chinese attack. This article shows Obama setting us up for Russian attack. You see, WE are always expected to keep our word, and we do. Russia, on the other hand, has declared their contempt for truth since the inception of their Communist regime. Unfortunately, both scenarios are likely, both countries are working together, and both are puppet regimes of the NWO leaders.

The End of Dollar Hegemony

Christian college puts political correctness above scripture
NOTE: The NWO has three planks: financial, something I can't remember right now, and religious. Meaning that they have placed people in organizations, and established new religious organizations (i.e., National/World Council of Churches), that serve their purposes.

Scouts Train to Fight Terrorists, and More

State Dept. Nominee Says “Guns Kill Civil Society”
From the article:

“If you want to be in the global environment, you have to play by the global rules,” Koh told a Cleveland audience.

Koh’s positions treat our constitutional law as if it were a mere local ordinance on the greater world stage. This is of particular concern to gun owners at a time when the U.S. Congress is under pressure from President Obama to ratify an international gun control treaty with countries in the western hemisphere. That treaty, known by its Spanish acronym CIFTA, would likely serve as a forerunner to a more extensive United Nations initiative, the “Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in all its Aspects.”

The Bush administration, under the leadership of UN Ambassador John Bolton, rejected the small arms treaty. Bolton plainly told the world that the United States will not accept a gun control document that violates our Constitutional right to bear arms. Harold Koh commented that Bolton was being “needlessly provocative.”

In a paper entitled “A world drowning in guns,” Koh maintains that a civil society cannot exist with broad gun ownership: “Guns kill civil society,” he said.

There is one federal agency whose job is to instill fear into gun owners and dealers. That agency is BATFE.

When we're afraid to make a purchase at a gun show, own an interesting collection of firearms, or effectively protect our own home and family, then we've already lost most of the right to keep and bear arms.

I thought we were still DELIBERATING the merits of such a system... Also, long before Obama made his declaration about LGBT Month, our local library was already advertising LGBT Month and hosting events for it. Truly, we have lost control of our government.

That is why our government continues to allow Muslim terrorist cells in the US, as I have pointed out before. It also explains a host of recent actions and comments by Obama, and other representatives.

12. Read NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY by Gary Allen (online), or listen/watch on YouTube here. Download a .pdf version here.

13. Be careful what you believe. I have been a fan of Glenn Beck for years now. HOWEVER, he has recently begun to say some things that are very disturbing to me. In particular, he has been making untruthful statements about 9/11 Truthers (people who do not believe official answers for the 9/11 tragedy, including myself), such as that we want to destroy the country, that we are dangerous, and that we worship Von Brunn, the man that shot people at the Holocaust Museum a while back. None of this is true, so this is very disturbing to me, and others like me. Just be cautious of what you believe. Remember, PRINCIPLES over POLITICS!

Take ACTION!



1. Our family recently went through our movies, keeping only a few. The rest we will sell on eBay. We put the TV in the garage. We discussed the fact that the people in Hollywood generally do not have our best interests in mind, and that the best way to protect ourselves from these subversive influences would be to stop paying them to indoctrinate us. If you would like to protect your family, but do not wish to take such an "extreme" position, I urge you to consider purchasing a ClearPlay DVD Player. Click the link for info.



2. Bookmark this website for future immediate use!

3. Alert your Massachusetts friends! The so-called "Bathroom Bill" will be voted on TOMORROW!!! (Sorry, I just found out!)
From the article:

...a similar bill was recently passed in Colorado where advocates of the measure stated it would not impact bathrooms, but as soon as it passed the state issued a pamphlet saying that it does.


4. Support alternative media, the only Truth-tellers we have to rely on!!!

5. Call your U.S. Congressman and Senators and oppose “Hate Crimes” (S 909), ENDA (Employment Nondiscrimination Act) and all aspects of President Obama’s homosexual/transsexual agenda (see below). Call or write: 202-224-3121; 202-225-3121; www.congress.org.

6. Do some Emergency Preparedness:






7. Advertise your views so that you can share them with others! LibertyStickers.com, American Life League's Pro-Life Store

8. Pay attention to what Congress is doing, and keep others informed!

9. Say NO to Pepsi's radical homosexual agenda!

10. Join ResistNet, and take a stand against Socialism!

11. Insist that our government Payback America!

12. Solicit military and police officers to join OathKeepers!
From the website:

Oath Keepers is an association of currently serving military, veterans, and peace officers who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.

Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.

We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders.”

NOTE: Check out the oath, and see why it is so important!

13. Fire your representatives if they refuse to uphold the Constitution!

14. Join the 09.12.09 National Taxpayer Protest. This can also be done via ResistNet.

15. Join The 9-12 Project. Although I have some serious misgivings about Glenn Beck, I think this is a great site for like-minded people to gather and converse.

How to keep youRSSelf informed


No, that's not a typo in the title.



One of the best and fastest methods of keeping up to date with the contents of websites is the phenomenon of RSS feeds. In this post, I will explain what RSS is, and how you can get it set up on your own computer. It is very easy to do, and only requires a few simple steps.

What is RSS?



RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Syndication is the practice used by newspapers, blogs, and radio whereby multiple outlets run content, like articles, from the same source. You've probably heard of people being referred to as "So-and-so, the syndicated columnist." Ann Landers, for example, writes a column, and hundreds of newspapers around the world print her column in their papers. This is syndication. Another example is cartoons, which are created once, but printed multiple times in multiple papers and websites. RSS allows you to receive a "newsfeed" directly to your computer, or website, each time there's a new article, letting you know what has been posted, what the title is, and some even give you a brief overview of its content. This saves you the trouble of repeatedly visiting a website in order to look for new content, and let's you easily pick and choose which articles you will read.

One of the great things about RSS is that many websites have RSS feeds for specific sections of their site. For instance, you can subscribe to the Sports section of a website, and only get RSS feeds about Sports. Most allow you to subscribe to receive feeds announcing all new posts/articles.

Subscription simply means that you have clicked on a button telling your feed reader to check that website for new content every so often. You can usually even set the interval of how often you want a site to be checked.

So, how do I get started?



First, you need some method of receiving and reading your RSS feeds. I will explain a few ways here.

Web-based feed readers



These may require you to register for an account on their website, but you are not required to download or install anything; it is all accessible on the internet, which means you can read your RSS feeds from anywhere you have internet access, no matter which computer you're on.



Exclusive feed readers



This is exactly what is sounds like: a program you can download, that is designed specifically to read RSS feeds. Some cost money, and some are free. I was able to find the following in a preliminary search:


Firefox


In case you are unfamiliar with the world's favorite web browser, meet Firefox: Internet Explorer's fancy, grown-up cousin. One of the greatest things about FF is the ability to install "addons," which give your browser abilities. For instance, I have addons installed that block ads on web pages, give me control of iTunes, or any other player, from the bottom of my browser window (so I don't have to switch over to iTunes to do things with the music), allow me to play YouTube videos in a sidebar while I do other things in the main window, etc. I LOOOOOVE Firefox! These are some of the addons you can install that will allow you to receive RSS feeds via Firefox: (PS- If you don;t have FF, it is free, and can be downloaded here. Installation of addons is as simple as clicking on a button.)



Got a reader, now how do I get content?



Go to your favorite website and look for the RSS icon (), or a link that is labeled RSS. Sometimes this is all it takes. Other sites ask what type of RSS feed you want. I don't know the difference, so I just click on XML, and it always works. Your browser will ask you where you want to add your RSS feed, just as if you were adding a bookmark. Simply create yourself a bookmark folder exclusively for your RSS feeds.

Now, whenever you open your feed reader, you will see the new content that has been added to the website you added. Lather, rinse, and repeat as necessary.

Visual step-by-step



Here's a walkthrough, using a website that everyone should follow closely, Beetle Blogger.


  1. Go to http://beetlebabee.wordpress.com/

  2. Scroll down until you see the text about RSS in the left-hand column:

  3. Would you like to be informed about new Entries or Comments? You can subscribe to both, if you want to, but you have to do it separately here. Click on "Entries RSS," and you will see something like this (Note: I'm on a Mac, so yours may look different.):

  4. Put the bookmark in the folder you want to keep your RSS feeds in, and PRESTO! You're done! Open up your feed reader and you should see the most recent posts from this website. Easy-peasy.

  5. Be sure to look for RSS availability at other sites you visit. They don't all have it, but be sure to look. Also, if you click on an RSS link and it takes you to a second page that asks which type of RSS feed you want, remember to click on XML and everything will be just fine.

  6. Remember: The best way to handle RSS feeds is to read the new ones each day, instead of letting them pile up on you.



Want more tips?





Why did you show me this?



Because, quite frankly, I don't know if I can continue to spend dozens of hours each week putting emails together to keep people informed. You may need to start doing at least some of it yourself. So, here's a start: Be sure to sign up for RSS feeds from the following sites:

"In an Electronic Police State, every surveillance camera recording, every e-mail you send, every Internet site you surf, every post you make, every check you write, every credit card swipe, every cell phone ping… are all criminal evidence, and they are held in searchable databases, for a long, long time," the report said.

"Whoever holds this evidence can make you look very, very bad whenever they care enough to do so. You can be prosecuted whenever they feel like it – the evidence is already in their database," the report continued. "Perhaps you trust that your ruler will only use his evidence archives to hurt bad people. Will you also trust his successor? Do you also trust all of his subordinates, every government worker and every policeman?

A War is at Us

I had the opportunity to speak in Sacrament meeting yesterday. The topic was left fairly open to my own judgment, and it was the subject of my thoughts for most of the day before. I wanted to give a "unicorns and rainbows" talk about how great mothers are, and why they are important, and I even began compiling quotes and sources along those lines, but it just didn't feel right. My decision to abandon this subject matter proved provident, as the youth speaker who went before me gave that talk, almost verbatim. However, as I prayed and read the scriptures, I felt prompted to speak on the following subject. Although some felt it was not entirely related to Mother's Day, I never felt any inkling but that it was exactly what the Lord would have me speak. I hope you find in it something that stirs your soul.

******************************

Brothers and Sisters, we are at war. Or rather, a war is at us, and most of us fail to realize it or treat it for the very real threat that it is. Satan, the leader of the opposition, has many earthly cohorts. Together, they are well aware that YOU are unaware, and it works to their advantage.

In his well-known treatise The Art of War, military mastermind Sun Tzu offers the following advice:

All warfare is based on deception.

Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable;
when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we
are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away;
when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

Hold out baits to entice the enemy...

If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him.
Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

If he is taking his ease, give him no rest.
If his forces are united, separate them.

Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.


Right now, as Americans, as Christians, as Mormons, we face attacks from countless enemies, from countless angles. The sad and frightening truth is that we waste our days in frivolous or meaningless activities, sedated in our belief that the threats either do not exist, or are not as bad as people say.

In 1942, the First Presidency issued the following message to the Church:

Satan is making war against...the very foundations upon which society, government, and religion rest...He plans to destroy freedom–economic, political, and religious, and to set up in place thereof the greatest, most widespread, and most complete tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods...He comes as a thief in the night; he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Without their knowing it, the people are being urged down paths that lead only to destruction...

(First Presidency Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark Jr., David O. McKay, Conference Report, October 1942, p. 14)


Several years later, Ezra Taft Benson wrote the following in his book An Enemy Hath Done This:

[W]e cannot fully live the gospel and not be involved in the fight for freedom. We would not say to someone, ‘There is no need to be baptized-all you need to do is live the gospel.’ That would be ridiculous because baptism is part of the gospel. How would you have reacted if during the War in Heaven someone had said to you, ‘look, just do what is right; there is no need to get involved in the fight for free agency." It is obvious what the devil is trying to do, but it is sad to see many of us fall for his destructive line. The cause of freedom is a most basic part of our religion. Our position on freedom helped get us to the earth and it can make the difference as to whether we get back home or not.

(Ezra T. Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p.314)


Often, we allow ourselves to believe that the Lord will take care of things. This is a wonderful thing, an expression of faith. The Lord WILL take care of things. Where we diverge from truth is in allowing ourselves to believe that the Lord will take care of things WITHOUT OUR HELP! If this were the case, there would be no need for home and visiting teachers, or for missionaries. In truth, such a situation would effectively nullify every position in the church. No, indeed, for although the Lord is fully able to get along without us, He has made it quite clear that our efforts are required.

Pres. Benson provides this additional counsel elsewhere:

"The devil knows that if the elders of Israel should ever wake up, they could step forth and help preserve freedom and extend the gospel. Therefore the devil has concentrated, and to a large extent successfully, on neutralizing much of the priesthood. He has reduced them to sleeping giants…

"Don't worry," says the devil; "the Lord will protect you, and besides, the world is so corrupt and heading toward destruction at such a pace that you can't stop it, so why try?" Well, to begin with, the Lord will not protect us unless we do our part. This devilish tactic of persuading people not to get concerned because the Lord will protect them no matter what they do is exposed by the Book of Mormon. Referring to the devil, it says: "And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well--and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to Hell" (2 Nephi 28:21).

I like that word carefully. In other words, don't shake them---you might wake them. The Book of Mormon warns us that when we see these murderous conspiracies in our midst, we should awaken to our awful situation (see Ether 8:24). Now, why should we awaken if the Lord is going to take care of us anyway? Let us suppose that it is too late to save freedom. It is still accounted unto us for righteousness' sake to stand up and fight. Some Book of Mormon prophets knew of the final desolate end of their nations, but they still fought on, and they saved some souls, including their own, by so doing. For, after all, the purpose of life is to prove ourselves, and the final victory will be for freedom.

(Ezra Taft Benson Teachings of Ezra T. Benson Chapter 5 Pg 659 – 661)


So, we are at war. Satan and his earthly minions have us surrounded, and the Lord expects us to stand and fight. Let us turn our attentions to just one of the many battlefronts, particularly poignant on this day set aside to celebrate mothers and motherhood: the push to eradicate the family unit. Well, you say, this in nothing new; Satan has been attempting to break down the family for years. This statement is true, but while you have allowed yourself to become so unalarmed at Satan’s familiar efforts, he has been making headway.

Karl Marx, the father of Marxism - upon which both Socialism and Communism are based – focused his venom on three main institutions: Capitalism, religion, and the family. In his most influential work The Communist Manifesto, he calls for the abolition of the family, and refers to the “bourgeois claptrap about the family and… the hallowed correlation of parents and child” as “disgusting.”

Within the past several decades, similar individuals have launched movements designed to weaken our society, including the feminist movement, designed to free women from the so-called shackles and slavery of children and home life. Currently, efforts are underway both nationally and internationally to remove from parents the ability, and indeed the right, to parent their own children.

“Parental rights are under attack in our nation,” says the pro-family website,ParentalRights.org.

Across the country, many judges are beginning to deny the vital role of parents in the lives of their children, instead inserting the government into a "parental" role in a child's life. This dangerous assertion is leading to the severance of the child-parent relationship in numerous instances across the nation...

With cases like these filling the courts, every parent should be concerned about the protection and preservation of their rights.

But another storm is rapidly forming on the horizon.

International law that seeks to empower the government to intrude upon the child-parent relationship is becoming an increasing threat.”

(http://www.parentalrights.org/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC={81C1F260-4A9F-4013-8164-68A360E295A5}).


Brothers and Sisters, the responsibility for our children has been laid before us by the Lord in undeniable terms:

Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. “Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, and to teach them to love and serve one another, observe the commandments of God, and be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.

(The Family: A Proclamation to the World)


PARENTS, we are told, have the sacred duty to rear, to provide, and to teach, and we must never allow these sacred duties to be taken from us, for, as the First Presidency declared nearly fifteen years ago:

[W]e warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.

(The Family: A Proclamation to the World)


We are seeing the fulfillment of this prophecy unfold all around us, as the effects of many of our past actions, as a society, become more apparent. Now, more than ever, it is absolutely essential that we, having the Gospel in our lives, cease to sit back and merely glow in the corner, but instead rise up and let our light shine for all the world to see! To anxiously fill the frontlines in this war, which, if lost, will cost us all that is dear to us!

“There is a real sifting going on in the church,” said Pres. Benson, nearly 35 years ago

it will sift the wheat from the tares, because we face some difficult days. And those days are going to require faith and testimony and family unity, the like of which we have never had.

(Conference Reports of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ezra Taft Benson OCT:1974).


“Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37)

To begin, we must devour the scriptures. The time for dalliance has long passed, and it is necessary today that we understand exactly what the Lord has spoken. This will enable us to recognize the tactics of the devil, particularly important because we are told that in the last days, Satan “shall deceive the very elect, who are the elect according to the covenant,” BUT “whoso treasureth up my word, shall not be deceived” (JS-M 1:22, 37).

Next, we must be on the lookout for the influences of Satan in the world around us. Remember, “[a]ll warfare is based on deception.” Have you unwittingly allowed inappropriate messages to enter your home via television, music, movies, or the internet? It may be necessary to reassess even your favorite sources of entertainment. Remember, “[a]ttack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.” Our home, we have been told, should be a heaven on earth. Ask yourself, would this be allowed in heaven?

Finally, get involved with, or start, an organization that is taking an active stand against evil. Many such groups exist already, speaking out against unnecessary abortions, inappropriate education in public schools, pornography, and many other things. Other groups exist specifically to stand FOR righteous causes, such as parental rights, motherhood, clean entertainment, and even clean language. Do NOT wait for the prophet to demand your efforts.

For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things; for he that is compelled in all things, the same is a slothful and not a wise servant; wherefore he receiveth no reward.

Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness;

For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves. (D&C 58:26-29)


Brothers and Sisters, it is my hope that we will all rise to this most unfortunate occasion, and give Satan a terrible opposition, the likes of which have not been seen since the War in Heaven!

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
