Stone Kingdom Chronicles
James W. Bruggeman, Ph. D., Editor
I am SO EXCITED! Since before our Tabernacles Conference in St. Louis this past October, I have been pondering and waiting for guidance on where to hold the Spring Bible Conference. I had a couple places in mind and there seemed to be some signs that one location in particular was appropriate—and it still may be a venue for the future—but, a very unusual set of circumstances has occurred so that it is now astoundingly clear where we are to meet next spring. I cannot go into the amazing details here of how this came about, but I will share it in another venue; either in my blog or more likely, at the Conference itself. When you hear the full story, you will praise God for all of His “coincidences” that fell into place to make this like a giant flashing billboard with 90 decibels of sound effects to go with it! The 2013 SKM Christ our Passover-Resurrection Bible Conference will be held commencing Friday, March 29th and running through Sunday, March 31st. The location is here in this verse:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
The location is the Family Center in Gap, Pennsylvania! The word “gap” occurs only this one time in the Bible, but an alternate rendering for the Hebrew word is “breach” and how many times have we been speaking of healing the breach?! That was one of the primary themes of all four of our meetings at Manassas! …Healing the breach between North and South, black and white, men and women, soul and spirit, and more.
Since I realized we would not be going back to Manassas (anytime soon), you must understand that I did not go seeking for a place named “Gap” or “breach.” In fact, Gap, PA is such a tiny crossroads that I did not even realize I had been in the tiny town of Gap until I returned home! While there, I had met the lady who handles the bookings for conferences at the Family Center. When I told her we had held meetings in the Philadelphia area for ten years, she invited me to hold a conference there. I thanked her and told her I would consider it. It wasn’t until I got back to my office and looked it up online that it leaped out at me: Gap, Pennsylvania! My heart leapt for joy! In view of the other “coincidences” that happened, it didn’t take a “rocket surgeon”:) to know this was the place. Here’s the link.
This gathering will be different in that we cannot have the venue on Sunday as they already have a regular Sunday worship service there, so we will have a two-day conference with Sunday being left open TBD (to be determined). Shannon, the Family Center’s Conference Coordinator, provided me with a list of nearby hotels. Given that we are not using a hotel venue for our Conference, it is not likely that I can negotiate group rates unless I guarantee a minimum number of guest-nights. That I cannot do and be “on the hook” if we fail to meet the quota. So here is the list Shannon provided and here is a website link with the details of those and many more hotels in the area. This is “Pennsylvania Dutch” – Amish country.
Revere Tavern—Best Western in Paradise, PA: 717-687-7683; Bird In Hand Family Inn, Bird in Hand, PA: 800-347-5457; Sleep Inn & Suites in Ronks, PA: 717-687-5226; Clarion Hotel @ Historic Strasburg Inn—Strasburg, PA: 717-687-7691 Shannon wrote me: “These places are all within 8 miles of here. My Mom works in reservations at The Bird In Hand Family Inn…it is a nice place.”
Invited to minister at this conference are all of you to one another informally. The formally invited teachers are Rob Corry, Pennsylvania; Stephen Jones, Minnesota; Ron Oja, Minnesota; and James Bruggeman, North Carolina. That is all I am going to commit to at this point due to our two day restriction. That could change. We will be gathering—at least for fellowship—on Sunday, so please do consider it as the typical SKM Friday through Sunday Bible Conference. SKM Conference Registration fee: $0. Please let me know you plan to attend. A quick phone call to my office and leave a message is best. (828-277-7733)

Secularism is the view that religious or spiritual considerations should be excluded from civil affairs and public education. To be a pure secularist, you must either believe God does not exist, or that His moral nature is unimportant and His power so modest that He can be safely ignored. Story continued here
Do you drink fruit-flavored beverages? Or Mountain Dew, Fanta Orange, Squirt, Gatorade or Powerade? You might want to know what you are imbibing. Consider this from Natural News, December 20, 2012. A substance patented as a flame retardant and banned as a food ingredient throughout Europe and in Japan is present in 10% of all soft drinks in the US. The December 12, 2011 issue of Environmental Health News reviews the history of this toxic ingredient, including the fact that “extreme soda binges – not too far from what many video gamers regularly consume” have resulted in skin lesions, memory loss and nerve disorders.
Mountain Dew, Fanta Orange, Squirt, some flavors of Gatorade and Powerade, as well as other fruit-flavored beverages contain brominated vegetable oil (BVO). On the Nutrition Connection page of its website, the Coca-Cola Company, which manufactures Fanta, defines BVO’s as “stabilizers to prevent the citrus flavoring oils from floating to the surface in beverages.” In other words, as Environmental Health News explains, BVO weighs down the citrus flavoring so that it mixes with the other soda ingredients, just as flame retardants slow down the chemical reactions which can cause fires. Here is the rest of this story. And here is a link to another writer’s perspective.

These days, a daily shower or bath is a normal occurrence for most Americans. But back in the 1500s, hygiene—beginning with cleanliness—left a lot to be desired. Not only was a bath a rare occurrence for most people, but when a bath was available, apparently the much-vaunted chivalry of the men took a leave of absence. The man of the house bathed first. He was followed by any other men and then the boys in the house.
Following them, the women bathed. Then the girls were allowed to bathe. Finally, it was the infant’s turn. As one can imagine, by this time, the water was often so filthy that if not careful, a baby could be lost in the murkiness. Hence, the saying arose, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath!”
In the first Star Wars movie, released in 1977, Luke Skywalker’s fictional home planet orbited two stars. NASA scientists have now discovered that such a planet actually exists. The find was recently uncovered in a cache of data from NASA’s $600 million Kepler mission which features a telescope journeying through the cosmos some 40 million miles from earth. The link includes stories and short video clips.
Dr. Bruggeman comments: This is a very powerful essay by our friend, Coach Dave Daubenmire. In 1999 Coach Daubenmire was sued by the ACLU for praying with his teams while coaching high school in Ohio. He now spends his energy fighting for Christian principles in the public domain. I had Coach as one of our featured speakers at our 2008 “White Horse III” Bible Conference in Philadelphia. The two rousing messages he presented there are still available from us on CD: Earnestly Contending for the Faith, and Has the Salt Lost His Savor? $4 each plus $4 s & h. I especially call your attention to the latter part of his essay where he has “dialogue” with BDV’s (Brain Dead Voters), as he calls them. Here’s the essay:
Note: I [Coach Daubenmire] am writing this prior to the election. The results will in no way alter this opinion.
During the past week I spent a good deal of time outside the early voting center in Columbus. I saw the evidence of the complete breakdown of the election process. The cheating was obvious to anyone who took the time to notice. Essay continues here.

Fiery congressman Allen West refused to concede defeat Wednesday and has filed a lawsuit demanding a full recount of votes in his Florida district after his efforts to get re-elected to the House of Representatives appeared to fall some 2,500 votes short. The Republican’s lawsuit, filed in court in Palm Beach County, called for paper ballots to be counted and voting machines “impounded.”
A recount of early votes flipped the results from 2,000 in his favor to a win for Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, West’s campaign manager Tim Edson alleged in a press release the day after the election. Full story here.
David vs. Monsanto—The Story of How a Lone Farmer Prevailed Against One of the Most Powerful Companies on the Planet
Monsanto has long been trying to establish control over the seeds of the plants that produce food for the world. They have patented a number of genetically altered food crops, which can only be grown with proper license, and the seeds for which must be purchased anew each year.
Alas, genetically engineered (GE) crops cannot be contained. And rather than being found guilty of contaminating farmers’ property, Monsanto has successfully sued hundreds of unsuspecting farmers for patent infringement when unlicensed GE crops were found growing in their fields. Many farmers have subsequently, quite literally, lost their farms.
Percy Schmeiser of Saskatchewan, Canada, is but one of Monsanto’s victims, but contrary to so many others, he refused to quietly tolerate the injustice. In a classic case of David versus Goliath, Schmeiser fought back against one of the most powerful businesses in the world. Story continues here.
(NaturalNews) As if its costly genetic tampering with the whole natural world weren’t brazen enough, Monsanto continues to bully and intimidate farmers across the United States, hoping this time to push its agenda through the highest court in the justice system. Story continues here.
Is coconut oil a simple cure for Alzheimer’s? This video is short (5:45) and very encouraging. And here is further information by Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., concerning other amazing benefits of this natural oil.

As it were, He is protecting His people in Goshen; that is, those whom He leads to look into these matters and act accordingly.
Freedom of Information Act in the UK filed by a doctor there has revealed 30 years of secret official documents showing that government experts have
1. Known the vaccines don’t work
(Reuters) – The highest court in the state of Washington recently ruled that a company that has foreclosed on millions of mortgages nationwide can be sued for fraud, a decision that could cause a new round of trouble for the nation’s banks.
The ruling is one of the first to allow consumers to seek damages from Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, a company set up by the nation’s major banks, if they can prove they were harmed.
Legal experts said last month’s decision from the Washington Supreme Court could become a precedent for courts in other states. The case also endorsed the view of other state courts that MERS does not have the legal authority to foreclose on a home. Story continued here.
Comment by Dr. Bruggeman: To all you Iraqi dinar (IQD) holders out there, look at this. The IQD is currently being traded at 1,165 dinar to one US dollar. Then notice the current trading rate of the Iranian rial in this story.
(Reuters) – A group of Iranian legislators, critical of the policies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has urged the central bank to intervene in the currency market to support the rial, which hit record lows this week, Iranian media reported on Tuesday.
The Iranian currency hit an all-time low on the open market on Monday at 25,650 to the dollar, half its value of a year ago and after losing about 17 percent since last Thursday. It was more stable on Tuesday. Continued here.
A Raleigh-based group devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud presented the N.C. Board of Elections on Friday with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote.
The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 and comparing them to the voter rolls. The Voter Integrity Project describes itself as a nonpartisan group aimed at clean, fair elections. It supports requiring photo ID to vote, which Republicans typically support and Democrats typically oppose. Link here.
Imagine the outrage of the (formerly) mainstream media over such a comment by George W. Bush! With a racist comment like that, the media would be playing that story non-stop for days. But actually, it was recently revealed that Bill Clinton had made that exact remark. Here’s the story:
Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”
This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama: Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”
Clinton is giving a keynote address at the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Comments by Dr. Bruggeman: I can only imagine how humiliated President Obama must be feeling, and how he must be feeling towards Bill Clinton at this point. He must be inwardly steaming. But the liberal media will give Clinton a pass (again), as if it were no big deal. Source here.
Comments by Dr. Bruggeman: The following article is serious food for thought regardless of one’s financial position, be he “prince or pauper.” It is especially of interest to those who presently hold what is now virtually worthless paper from Iraq in the expectation it will become valuable in the future. The information below would cause anyone with a bank account to ponder even more seriously how one can protect one’s assets. Pray for godly wisdom! Here’s the article:
“All Legal Bank Deposit Protections Are Now Officially Gone”
Posted by Wealth Wire – Monday, August 13th, 2012
Former money manager Ann Barnhardt, who in November of 2011made the decision to cease operations of her brokerage firm and return funds to her customers citing “systemic” problems within the entire financial industry, has issued a new warning about the stability of US banks and the safety of individual deposit accounts.
The warning, stemming from a recent federal appeals court ruling surrounding customer funds lost during the 2007 collapse of Chicago futures broker Sentinel, indicates that individuals who lose deposited funds because a financial institution improperly manages that money, even if those funds are supposed to be “segregated” from other operations of the firm, are essentially left with no recourse if the firm goes belly-up.

The word, “charisma,” comes from the Greek. A good translation for the original Greek meaning might be “divine favor.” In Christian history, it referred to extraordinary powers or abilities granted by the Holy Spirit for a significant and divinely ordained purpose or mission. Today, especially in a political context, it has come to mean a rare ability to arouse public devotion and enthusiasm, but it is no longer qualified by divine sanction or moral purpose. It is simply charm, glamour, and personal magnetism without solid anchors to truth, moral courage, or wisdom. Story continued here
St. Louis Feast of Tabernacles
I have contracted with the Millennium Hotel in St. Louis to hold a second conference there. Prophetically, we felt led to return there because we are aware that we are “walking out” the symbolism of the double portion of our inheritance. As I wrote last year, this all has to do with Ephraim (and Manasseh) and the double portion of the inheritance for the “Joseph work.” With the Louisiana Purchase by President Thomas Jefferson, the young U.S.A. doubled in size overnight! And it was from St. Louis that the Lewis and Clark Expedition departed to commence exploration of the vast portion of the continent that was later to become many of the central and western states of the united States.

Keynesian jobs have no economic value
When presented with the usual Keynesian drivel about economic stimulus and the standard left-wing diatribes about government layoffs, many conservatives have responded that “government spending creates no jobs.”
This is incorrect as a matter of economic fact, and unwise as a matter of political rhetoric. To start with, however, we must distinguish between two different measures: “jobs” and “economic value.” Story continued here
The notion that the Environmental Protection Agency uses “science” to justify their regulations is false, just like most of the claims they issue on various aspects of the nation’s environment. Their favorite scam is to estimate the number of deaths they will prevent with some new draconian regulation.
Japan can build anything, right? How about making a second Tokyo? It’s Japan’s business hub, capital, and largest, most densely populated city. But it sits on the tumultuous Ring of Fire. (Also see related stories below and in adjoining column.) Story continued here
[See the previous story in this column, "Smart meters are spying on you"]
(SANTA CRUZ, CA Just as PG&E enters the final phase of its deployment of wireless “smart” meters in California, the largest of the state’s Investor Owned Utilities (IOU’s) has reversed course, quietly beginning to replace the ‘smart’ meters of those reporting health impacts with the old trusty analog version. Consumer rights and health groups immediately seized on the news, demanding that millions of Californians unhappy with their new wireless meters get their analogs returned immediately at no cost.
‘Smart’ meters are new wireless utility meters being installed as part of the “smart” grid initiative, spearheaded by technology firms and backed by the Obama administration and the Department of Energy. Promises ranging from lower utility bills to enhanced renewable generation capacity have failed to materialize, with widespread reports of higher bills, privacy violations, fires and explosions, and commonly reported health impacts such as headaches, nausea, tinnitus, and heart problems associated with powerful wireless transmissions.

“This is not simply an illusion,” says the creator of one cloak. “Even scientific instruments will not be able to detect the object.”
Consider this event from the life of Jesus. But he passing through the midst of them went his way,… (Luke 4:30)
I have often wondered exactly how Jesus was able to pass through the midst of a crowd of people who were trying to kill him. One possibility that occurred to me is: Did Jesus use His supernatural power to make Himself invisible? If He did, I do not contend that he needed to use something as crude as a technological device, but it is interesting that science seems to be on the verge of such a device. (The rest of the story from Discover magazine continues here.)
“Smart meters” are now being installed in many states, with plans to install them in every home in America. These electric meters replace the old ones which simply measured how much electricity you use on your property, so that they can bill you accordingly.
They are being replaced with surveillance devices that are radio stations that are only legal by the law of “implied consent.” If you give consent for them to install such a device on your property, then it is supposed to be “legal,” even if you did not know what you were consenting to. The short video here explains further and tells you what you can do about it: Just say “no!”
As ominous as this is, it is already much worse than this in some states. I had discussed in the early lectures in my Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom series how our liberties are being sytematically destroyed and mentioned the smart meters. Here is a response from a friend on our CD Ministry about what is going on in her state of North Dakota.
Just though I’d tell you that North Dakota has had controlled heat for several years. The new homes are equipped with speakers that announce that the heat will be shut off at such and such a time. I think they allow about one hour’s notice. Most people have some type of back-up. Although I have a friend in town that just had electric heat put in, and she was told she wasn’t supposed to have a wood stove, but they didn’t tell her she had to take it out.
The control [by the power company] is usually started when it goes below zero and it’s usually in the evenings. I have heard many people complain of how cold it gets—those who don’t have back-up heat or are too old to be able to handle hauling and splitting wood. Some use oil or propane as back-up. Those of us who don’t have “off-peak” pay a higher rate for our heat and they can’t shut it off. However, my insurance representative told me that soon we aren’t going to be able to buy insurance on our homes if we have wood stoves. /s/ Mary in North Dakota
This is another sign of Financial Mystery Babylon’s continuing fall. Is it not curious, though, that Lloyds can withdraw (presumably) millions of dollars/pounds/euros from big banks, and yet a handful of Occupy Wall Street protestors trying to withdraw their money and close their accounts with Citibank in New York are arrested. See Dr. Stephen Jones’ blog today in this regard.
I say it is “curious,” but yet it is totally logical when you understand that the purpose of the Occupy Wall Street leaders is to create chaos. As always, these anarchist groups attract “cannon fodder,” people who have no idea they are being used for a much larger agenda. They become the “useful idiots” (a phrase attributed to the murderous communist terrorist and dictator Lenin).
In upcoming lectures in our Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom series, I will teach more in depth on this current manifestation of a very old (and successful) strategy of evildoers. I will explain how it is being played out before our eyes as these Occupy Wall Street-type groups have “spontaneously” sprung up around the country, including Occupy Asheville. I saw them in our city plaza this weekend.
One “youth” was wearing a T-shirt screen-printed with the hammer and sickle logo of communism with the letters CCCP below it, which in the West was known as the USSR. The young man is a true “useful idiot,” as he was perhaps not even born when the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics fell apart.
Concerning Lloyds of London, this article comes from Weiss Research in Palm Beach County. Weiss Research is a well-known financial research and investment advisory firm which offers free email subscriptions to some of their research publications.
I subscribe but find almost no time to review them regularly. Hence, I am grateful that our friend, Eldon, sent me this one as a heads-up. Here is one of the Weiss websites. And here is the heads-up.
“Banks could be taken down, says Lloyds finance director. Without warning, Lloyds the world’s oldest insurance market announced that it has withdrawn its money from European banks.
The reason? According to Lloyds, the banks are in danger of failing as Europe’s debt crisis continues to intensify. The companies Finance Director, Luke Savage, put it simply: If you’re worried the government itself might be at risk, then you’re certainly worried the banks could be taken down with them.
Which European governments is Lloyds talking about? They’re not saying. But it IS interesting to note that Lloyds didn’t just withdraw its money from Greek banks; it withdrew its money from banks all over Europe!
One thing you can be sure of, though: When the world’s oldest insurance company … A firm that for 323 years has made its living by accurately calculating the odds of future disasters … When that company suddenly takes its money and runs, it’s a MASSIVE red flag for investors a clear sign that the beginning of the end is near! Lloyds has every reason to worry. In addition to the government debt crisis that’s threatening to destroy European banks, a huge credit crisis is spreading across the Continent as well.
Spanish and Italian banks are rejecting massive numbers of loans and charging customers more as the sovereign debt crisis continues to drive their own borrowing cost higher.
Any way you look at it, this shrinking of European credit markets is the worst kind of downward spiral:
This email just came to me from my friend, Alan, and I just had to give the photo wider “exposure!”
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”- KJV Song of Solomon 2:4 Nice touch, huh?
This is a beautiful photo of a giant American flag in Arizona. The photo is authentic, UN-Touched and was taken on regular Kodak 35mm film.

We will hold our Fall Bible Conference in St. Louis the weekend of October 7th through the 9th.

An actual 9.0+ mega-quake would have leveled the whole country of Japan. The damage at the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, and particularly at non-operational Reactor 4, could not have occurred simply from flooding or an earthquake, claims report.
What if the alleged 9.0+ magnitude mega-earthquake that was said to have hit off the coast of Japan back on March 11 never actually happened, and the resultant tsunami that destroyed the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was actually a deliberate, false flag attack using nuclear weapons? Freelance journalist Jim Stone offers compelling evidence that the official story we have all been told concerning the disaster is a phony cover-up for a concerted attack against Japan, possibly for offering to enriched uranium for Iran.

To punish a crime, you must have a crime. The FDA creates crimes when elderberry juice concentrate magically becomes a drug! Such raids have taken place a lot in the last few years, but lately it’s almost overwhelming to keep up! FDA raids operate the same way: issue a warning not to make health claims, company makes changes, inspections ensue, everything seems fine with no more word from FDA, then BAM! agents raid the place like a crack house and confiscate the drug. ~ Health Freedoms
U.S. marshals have seized elderberry juice concentrate products distributed by a Mulvane area-based company because a federal agency said the products make false claims about prevention and treatment of diseases.

On June 30, QE2 ended with a whimper. The Fed’s second round of “quantitative easing” involved $600 billion created with a computer keystroke for the purchase of long-term government bonds. But the government never actually got the money, which went straight into the reserve accounts of banks, where it still sits today. Worse, it went into the reserve accounts of FOREIGN banks, on which the Federal Reserve is now paying 0.25% interest. [continued here]

A new study published this month in Psychological Science suggests that the very sight of sickness prompts the immune system to mount defenses against illness. That finding follows naturally from earlier research suggesting that disgust – the typical first reaction we have to a person with, say, open sores – may be part of a “behavioral immune system.” Revulsion, after all, makes us more likely to move away from the source of infection – and thereby less likely to catch it.

JUNK food may seem like an addictive drug because it is. In rats, at least, too much fatty food raises the threshold for feelings of satisfaction, sparking a cycle of compulsive overeating.
In people, addictive drugs desensitise the brain by raising the threshold of “reward” activity that is needed to feel satisfied: more drug is needed to achieve the same effect. Paul Kenny and colleagues at the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Florida, wondered if fatty foods might also cause desensitisation.
They used electrodes to measure the sensitivity of rats’ brains to reward activity. Some ate normal rat food while others had limited or unlimited access to junk foods, tasty to both rats and humans. After 40 days, the brains of those that ate junk freely were less sensitive than those in the other groups. They were also obese. From New Scientist, March 31, 2010 [article here]
Schizophrenia has long been blamed on bad genes or even bad parents. Wrong, says a growing group of psychiatrists. The real culprit, they claim, is a virus that lives entwined in every person’s DNA. [From June 2010 Discover magazine. Article here.]
It was not very long ago that attacks upon the authenticity of the Scriptures were the stock in trade of atheists alone. With only a very few exceptions, the heads of the Christian Church, and those charged with preaching the Gospel of Grace to their congregations, were staunch defenders of the Bible, fully supporting the accuracy of its recorded facts and avowing complete faith in its narratives of that which is miraculous. They were in hearty agreement with the Scriptural appraisal that is applicable to the atheist: “The fool hath aid in his heart, There is no God.” Story continued here
Are the glory days of the archaeologist over? Has everything cool and ancient already been discovered? Nope. Thanks to ever-improving technology, several new findings have electrified the Web.
A robot explorer recently discovered ancient markings at the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The robotic device found the markings inside a secret chamber inaccessible to humans–and then proceeded to film the painted hieroglyphics and stone markings, which hadn’t been seen by human eyes in 4,500 years, via a small robotic camera that was fit through a tiny hole in a stone wall.

Dr. Bruggeman comments: The late Bible archeologist, E. Raymond Capt, wrote two bvooks and produced one documentary concerning the marvels of the Great Pyramid and its connection with biblical prophecy. The Great Pyramid is truly “The Bible in Stone.” The documentary (DVD) is available, and Great Pyramid Decoded and A Study in Pyramidology.

Every year around Halloween, I tell friends to watch for a sudden epidemic of colds and flu. Why does “flu season” always begin about that time? There is nothing complicated about it. It is because all the children go trick-or-treating (often in inclement weather) and bring home a vast number of candies and other sugar-laden treats. Over the next few days, as they consume the candy, their immune systems get depressed and they “catch” a cold from those nasty germs. The fact is, Story continued here

Yesterday (November 3, 2010) the Fed announced that it was going ahead with Quantitative Easing, a euphemism meaning that they are monetizing the national debt. This is a watershed event in the financial history of the United States. They are/will be buying U.S. government bonds, but to do so, they will be cranking up the printing press to come up with the trillion-plus dollars needed. This is drastic! It points to the strong possibility of the U.S. following the German Weimar Republic model of hyperinflation in the early 1920s. It eviscerated the German economy and paved the way for the rise of Hitler and National Socialism Story continued here

Dr. Bruggeman has recuperated sufficiently to enable him to begin traveling to his Tennessee and Atlanta Fellowships where he has commenced a new lecture series entitled Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom. This series will encompass a wide range of topics which is as up-to-date as the headlines. Among numerous other vital issues, the teachings will incorporate a discussion of the nexus of the current destruction of our money, the moves towards authoritarianism and how both relate to the coming Stone Kingdom of God.

“I used to have all kinds of allergies and asthma and was on everything from Seldane, Sudafed, steroid inhalers that caused heart palpitations, dry eyes and mouth and even on a breathing machine (nebulizer) at one point.

A Silicon Valley engineer/entrepreneur has invented a little box which might someday soon (5-10 years) be powering our homes. He takes the very abundant and cheap beach sand, makes thin ceramic squares of them, then coats them with his secret formula and stacks them to create a square. The little box looks to be an approximately five inch cube…large enough to power a home. Already, FedEx, Staples, Wal-Mart, Google, EBay and other large companies have bought and installed them at their facilities in California—and are finding the savings in electricity costs well worth the investment.

Pancreatic cancer is a devastatingly fatal form of cancer, and is typically regarded as the most deadly and universally rapid-killing form of cancer. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, an estimated 45,220 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, of which 38,460 are expected to die.
Part of the problem is that this cancer is usually diagnosed quite late, contributing to the abysmal five-year survival rate. It also shows you just how ineffective conventional detection methods and treatments are.
All of that may soon change however — all due to the persistence and dedication of a high school kid who decided there must be a better way to detect this lethal cancer sooner…
Yes, a 15-year-old boy named Jack Andraka has done what scientists with millions of dollars-worth of research grants at their disposal have failed to do. He invented a dipstick-type sensor to detect pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer that is:

A health action organization in the United Kingdom (UK) has data comparing natural health products to drugs. We would expect similar results if the study were conducted in the USA. The UK study showed, for example, that the risk of death from pharmaceutical drugs in the UK is 62,000 times that of taking food supplements! A stay in a UK hospital poses a risk of death similar to active military service in Iraq or Afghanistan! The study also concludes that herbal medicines and food supplements can both be regarded as ‘supersafe,’ posing no significant risk of death.Here is a link to the full story.
Washington, DC – As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we should examine what lessons can be learned from the first Thanksgiving celebration. One little known fact is when the Pilgrims landed they established a short-lived form of agricultural communism. The land was owned in common; everyone worked for each other and each received an equal allotment of food no matter how hard they worked. The men planted for everyone and the women prepared food and washed clothes for everyone.
This system quickly failed. The women described the communal chores as a form of slavery, men rapidly lost motivation, and the able-bodied feigned illness to avoid work. Complete essay here.
Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has a book, titled Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative. Among its statements for which Hubbard has been criticized and disavowed by the Republican Party is, “The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.”
Hubbard’s observation reminded me of my 1972 job interview at the University of Massachusetts. During a reception, one of the Marxist professors asked me what I thought about the relationship between capitalism and slavery. My response was that slavery has existed everywhere in the world, under every political and economic system, and was by no means unique to capitalism or the United States. Perturbed by my response, he asked me what my feelings were about the enslavement of my ancestors. Story continues here.
A team of British engineers have developed a process to produce gasoline out of thin air! From the UK publication, The Sun: “Experts hailed the breakthrough as a potential “game-changer” as scientists seek to solve the world’s energy crisis. The small company from the north England has developed “air capture” technology which creates synthetic petrol with only air and electricity.” Link here.
MIT chemist Daniel Nocera has unveiled details about his long-awaited “artificial leaf” invention, a small solar cell that mimics photosynthesis and has the potential to produce low-cost electricity for individual homes – an advance that could be particularly valuable in the developing world, where many people lack electricity.
About the size of a playing card, the solar cell – which uses inexpensive and widely available materials like silicon – is able to split water into its two components, hydrogen and oxygen. Placed in a gallon of water in bright sunlight, the device could produce enough electricity to supply a house in a developing country with electricity for a day.
The hydrogen and oxygen gases produced by the artificial leaf could be stored in a small fuel cell, which would use the gases to generate electricity. Nocera, who has been working on the technology for several years, released details about it during the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society in California. “Our goal is to make each home its own power station,” said Nocera. While U.S. researchers had previously developed a so-called “artificial leaf,” Nocera’s recent discovery of inexpensive catalysts, including nickel and cobalt, has made the technology more efficient and cost-effective.

How many Americans know that as of September 2013, all of us engaged in any form of communication will be subject – with the approval of President Barack Obama and the silence of Congress – to continuous tracking and databasing by the National Security Agency?
As I reported here last week, the NSA’s massive new center in Bluffdale, Utah – more than five times larger than the U.S. Capitol – will be storing and analyzing:
“All forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cellphone calls and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails – parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases. …” (“The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say),” James Bamford, wired.com, March 15).

A court in central Vietnam has sentenced a high school chemistry teacher to six years in prison after he criticized the government. Judge Nguyen Van Uy says Dinh Dang Dinh was sentenced in a half-day trial Thursday on charges of conducting propaganda against the state. The official Vietnam News Agency reported Friday that police in central Dak Nong province arrested Dinh last October, confiscating his computer and documents calling for multi-party democracy. U.S.-based Human Rights Watch said Thursday that Dinh is a former army officer who wrote online commentaries alleging police harassment and signed a petition opposing a planned Chinese-led bauxite mine in Vietnam’s restive central highlands. Vietnam is a one-party state that does not tolerate challenges to its authority. Dissidents frequently receive long prison terms for speaking out. (Source here.)

Here’s what it took to get an 8th grade education in 1895. Remember when grandparents and great-grandparents stated that they only had an 8th grade education? Could any of us have passed the 8th grade in 1895? This is the eighth-grade final exam from 1895 in Salina, Kansas, USA. It was taken from the original document on file at the Smokey Valley Genealogical Society and Library in Salina and reprinted by the Salina Journal.

Lemon juice with meals will eliminate the symptoms of stomach acidity and indigestion. Acid reflux or GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) is rarely due to “too much stomach acid.” Yes, contrary to mass advertising, antacids are wrong and actually lead to stomach cancer. Proton pump inhibitors like the “purple pill” block the digestive process, i.e., stomach hydrochloric acid and pepsin. [From The Bob Livingston Letter, P.O.

You are used to seeing the Transportation Security Administration officers better known as TSA at airports as they screen passengers before they board planes. However, the TSA is not just for airports anymore. Last month, Tennessee became the first state to team up with the TSA and conduct checkpoints at five weight stations and two bus stations inside the state.
A decade ago, I (JWB) was a firm believer that ice cream was one of the basic food groups (wink, wink), and thereby justified my having a serving a day of Breyer’s. (an exaggerated statement, but not by much!) I knew that cheaper ice creams had a plethora of unhealthy ingredients. I also believed that Breyer’s was all natural and contained only milk, cream and sugar, as it was then listed on the label. (Okay, I know white sugar is not good for you, but at least it wasn’t Splenda or Aspartame, I reasoned.) For some reason, I simply quit craving ice cream and I have had very little in the past many years.
Now, we learn that Breyer’s (and other brands) lie on their label about the ingredients of their “all natural” ice cream. Here is the link on that story: “Is Your Favorite Ice Cream Made With Monsanto’s Artificial Hormones?”
But what led me to that revelation was this story published this weekend (October 23, 2011) “The cancer time bomb sitting in your refrigerator—Will you stop consuming it?” Here’s the introduction to the story:
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. If you’re a woman, your chance of getting breast cancer in your lifetime is about one in eight.
Researchers at a breast cancer conference stated that up to one-third of breast cancers could be avoided by making different lifestyle choices, such as the foods you choose to eat.
There is one food you may be surprised to learn, that is directly linked to breast cancer—and that is pasteurized dairy in the form of milk or milk products.
The risk lies in consuming milk from cows treated with a synthetic, genetically engineered growth hormone called rBGH, and unfortunately, this applies to about one third of the dairy cows in America.
When you consume dairy products from these cows, every product made from their milk is contaminated with this dangerous hormone—be it cheese, ice cream, yogurt, butter—or just plain milk. [Story continues here.]

The following testimonial from our friend, Louise, concerns her experience with a product which we promote called CARDIO PROTEGEN (formerly, MegaCardio) from Good Life, International. I myself experienced dramatic results and so have numerous other friends and acquaintances.
I post this now because my friends, Mary Alice and Carol, will have the DPA machine (mentioned below) at the Conference in St. Louis. We encourage all who would like to have a brief (2 minute), painless DPA test and get an accurate print-out of your cardiovascular health to take advantage of this opportunity. Doctors, clinics and other healthcare practitioners charge anywhere from $75-$125 for this same test. As a Conference special, Mary Alice will charge only $25. I intend to have another DPA screening at the Conference just as a checkup on my progress.
If you are not able to attend the Conference, click on the logo on this page of the Good Life, International company and learn about this wonderful product. After that, if you have questions, call me. By the way, numerous others have reported excellent results in the reduction or elimination of joint pain with the use of the Mega Joint Plus supplement. These products are both liquids for better absorption and assimilation.
Testimonial of Louise Cordell
I had been concerned for quite some time about my health. At night, about 2 hours after getting to bed, I’d awake because the pain in my legs was waking me. I’d seen commercials on t.v. about PAD [Peripheral Artery Disease], but that affected people when they walked. I didn’t have that. Although, when I walked, my legs did feel heavy.
Another concern was my continuous cough. My sister died of congestive heart failure. Did I have that?! Am I getting paranoid about my health that seems to be going down hill? I put off going to the doctor. They only give you more pills, expensive pills, to take. Or you have to take expensive tests, which also have unpleasant side effects. My toes were beginning to get tingly and my legs were cold most of the time. I didn’t mention it to my husband. No need to worry him. Although, he knew I wasn’t getting a full night’s sleep and he could hear my coughing.
So I prayed and pondered the situation. Then one day I got the notice about the meeting out at Wyoming [Minnesota], held by James Bruggeman. I felt compelled to go for some unknown reason. We went to the meeting. And at the break for lunch, James came over to my table and sat down across from me to eat his lunch—which was weird. That had NEVER happened to me before. The speaker sitting at my table to eat his lunch! We talked a little. He was friendly. Then he mentioned his free CD and DVDs on a heart-healthy product and that I was welcomed to obtain them from his product table. So I went over to get one and they were all gone. Hmm.
So I meandered over to the girl who was making hats at the sound man’s equipment table. We talked about her hats and scarves she was making, and as I was leaving she mentioned James’ DVDs and CDs- “had I gotten one?” I said- “No, they were all gone when I got there.” She said- “Here they are, I moved them to my table.” So I took one of each, still not knowing what they were about.
I took them home and lost them, so I didn’t look at them for several weeks. Then one day I found them and watched the dvd and listened to the cd. Both very interesting but a dead end. No mention of how the product could be had. Then I got a call from James—another weird coincidence. Why would he be calling me? Well, my name was on his list of people he had given his cd and dvd to and he was following up. He said he’d have his friend, Carol, call me if I was interested. And a few days later, Carol called. This product sounded like an answer to my prayer. And it was!
I got the product in September  and within 2 weeks I noticed my legs weren’t hurting as badly as before, and the tingling toes were not tingling. So I kept taking it 3 times a day as recommended. I was beginning to feel warmer. I had always had a problem with being cold when everyone else was warm. I’d wear insulated undershirts in 80 degree weather and long socks just to be comfortable. Now I was becoming too hot with all that clothing on.
So we went to James’ Feast of Tabernacles Bible Conference in Sweetwater, Tennessee and had the DPA [Digital Pulsewave Analysis] test and found I was very close to having a major event—a heart attack or stroke. Boy-o-boy- The Father in Heaven got to me just in time!
All of these happenings seem to be just random, everyday occurrences, but upon close analysis , to me, it seemed, like the Hand of God working in my life. I have seen this kind of thing at work in my life before and I know it is miraculous workings of God. It seems like when I pray for something, events start happening and I get the answer.
This product has definitely done me a lot of good and I have recommended it to several people. Funny thing, though, they all blow it off, aren’t interested, don’t want to commit or just don’t believe it will work. Even though I tell them what it has done for me.

We have been harping about HAARP for 15 years—ever since we first learned about it from the book Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology by Nick Begich and Jeanne Manning. To that end, we have been offering our readers various books and DVDs on the subject (several by Dr. Begich) for some years.
We are currently downsizing our book and DVD sales department, however, and most of the books and DVDs concerning HAARP are on the clearance list. Only those who are on our monthly Feed My Sheep postal mailing have received the clearance list fliers. You can sign up for this free monthly mailing here.
Being familiar with the basic principles of the HAARP technology, I view major earth catastrophes with a skeptical view concerning just how “natural” these events are in recent years. For it is a fact that earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and other “natural disasters” can all be precipitated by HAARP—and the sheep still sleep in America.
Thus, when the 9.+ earthquake hit Japan a few months ago, I immediately wondered if HAARP were involved. It appears some others had the same thought and have done the research. Here is an article by Ethan Huff:
Recent data released by Dimitar Ouzounov and colleagues from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland highlights some strange atmospheric anomalies over Japan just days before the massive earthquake and tsunami struck on March 11.
Seemingly inexplicable and rapid heating of the ionosphere directly above the epicenter reached a maximum only three days prior to the quake, according to satellite observations, suggesting that directed energy emitted from transmitters used in the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) may have been responsible for inducing the quake.

If you have been following my current lecture series, Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, then you will be very interested in yesterday’s article by Ellen Brown. In our lecture series, we have recently analyzed from a historical and prophetic perspective The Rise of Financial Babylon, and we will continue to put it under the biblical magnifying glass in lectures still to come.
Ellen’s research enlightens us as to the possible money machinations and manipulators at the highest levels. The subheads of Ellen’s article are: “The Dubious S&P Downgrade, Who Drove the S & P Agenda?, The One World Company, Battle of the Titans and Titanic Battle or Insider Trading?” Here’s the link.
Mega-church Pastor Rob Bell’s recent book, Love Wins, was the catalyst for the Baptist declaration made this past Tuesday, June 14th, that hell is an “an eternal, conscious punishment” for those who do not accept Jesus.
Bell clearly supports universal reconciliation; i.e., the teaching that God will ultimately save every one. The story is here on the far Leftist Huffington Post, where, not surprisingly, they take great delight—especially in the responses section—in skewering the Baptists.
One Roman Catholic respondent even suggested the necessity of reinstituting the Inquisition to bring everyone back to the Roman church! God forbid! And here I thought we lived in an enlightened age (sarcasm.)
We have taught of Rome’s sordid historical record in some of our recent lectures. In them, we have identified the papacy as the extension of the prophet Daniel’s fourth beast empire. (They are not yet available here on the website, but you can order them by downloading the printable order form [click on the “Shopping” tab and click on the bottom of the drop down list] and find them at the top of page 3 of the order form.)
We are delighted to see Rob Bell’s book “rocking” the church to its (supposed) foundations. I say “supposed” because the truth is that the doctrine of eternal torment is not a foundation of the church Jesus ordained, nor was that hideous doctrine even orthodoxy for the first several hundred years of the Christian church.
Rather, universal reconciliation was widely taught and for good reason; it is the actual truth of the Bible. We have taught the whole story from A to Z in our series of Bible lectures entitled God’s Plan for Man.
Through the course of the study, we dispel the awful doctrine of eternal torment in hell, as well as the nearly equally odious doctrine of eternal extinction. We then provide a reasoned and biblical theology of how and why God is eventually going to save everyone — hallelujah! That is true Christianity!
I have published part of the lecture series in book form under the title Sacred Secrets of the Sovereignty of God. We will publish the sequels as time permits.

The person who calculated this bit of information is now and has been a professor at West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va., for the last forty some years. Until now, I have never looked at the clunker program in this way: A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons of gas a year. A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons a year. So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year. They claim 700,000 vehicles were taken off the road so that’s 224 million gallons saved per year. That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. Five million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption. More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs about $350 million dollars. So, we paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350 million. The bottom line is that we spent $8.57 for every dollar we saved. I’m pretty sure they’ll do a great job with our health care, though.

As usual, Congressman Ron Paul makes more sense than anyone else in Washington when it comes to your money. It will be interesting to see what Paul and his allies will be able to accomplish in the 112th Congress. We believe that eventually the Fed will have to go. Whether that will be with great pain or a relatively smooth transition (and a transition to what?…before the Kingdom of God’s perfect system arrives) remains to be seen.

Obviously, this position will facilitate my efforts to ensure the Fed provides the American people with more information about what they have been doing with and to our money. Not surprisingly, since my chairmanship was announced, apologists for the Fed have been recycling the old canard about how increased transparency threatens the Fed’s so-called political independence.
