Jerusalem; Potential Fall of EU; Russia & the Middle East - Prophecy Today Video Update

On things like this, I agree with the author and certainly believe this COULD very well be what will happen to the USA- America... and it's sad that more people are not God -fearing enough to grow a pair and stand up to the bully Gov't that trashes the U.S. Constitution, and the God of the Bible! But we can NEVER dismiss the "God Factor" -- what the Bible actually says about our future. That has got to be our MAIN Anchor and guide always. You see... we KNOW what will happen, but not HOW it will happen, except that biblical Christians are seeing the very composite "Signs" that the Bible fore tells, and it makes our heads spin [but also rejoice] as we are seeing all these extraordinary things come true now in 2010, and that also strengthens our FAITH when the rest of the 'unbelieving world' grows more fearful every day that goes by. That is why we feel that obeying God's command to spread and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ is so important now, in the 'Last Days.'

Let me just point out that wars have always been fought and soldiers TAKE commands and obey. Leaving corrupt politics out of the equation for a minute -- some past wars were fought for FREEDOM and LIBERTY. But right now, many experts and military people have to admit that our present conflicts/ wars are being 'controlled' by "Big Interests/ Global Corporations", super rich Puppeteers -- not only corrupt Governments. Most Vietnam Veterans totally believe that we were WINNING THE WAR IN THAT COUNTRY, but our own country sold us out, pulled us out, and then blamed it on US!! We also got shoddy care from the American public and the corrupt VA system. Many of us are Christians now and have to forgive-- but we will never forget our mistreatment and disenfranchisement's. However, the last part of Revelation says that we will not remember all that baloney when we are at total peace in heaven with the Lord. Praise the Lord.

PLEASE, don't get me wrong about the military... most of my cousins, uncles, my dear old Dad joined and fought well and it was sort of like a "rite of passage" into manhood, and we wanted to get that out of the way and then start a family and perhaps more education and/ or trades AFTER we ran the 'Gauntlet of Death and Combat.' Personally, I learned so much about a variety of good skills that still helps me deal with hard situations, and I miss the good old camaraderie and discipline/ regimentation [well--some of]. Just be careful now days-- under a corrupt, wicked administration who is selling out the military and the working class, of getting entangled with the 'Beast--666' mentioned in Revelation. I just ask my good friends to BEWARE, and not fly too close to the 'flame of Big Brother, and the holding company.' I hope you all can read between the lines... BEFORE our precious Freedoms-- 1st and 2nd Amendments are stripped from us, and sorry to say, this, I believe, is surely coming down the pike... and soon. Watch out for that 'long-legged Mac Daddy', that James David Manning, Ph.,D talks about on U-Tube.... lol.
I put a picture of me and 2 other Army Aviators at the BearCat, RVN EM Club in 1970, when I was age 21, on Face Book... I'm the Sp/4 gunner on the Left with handsome dark brown hair. "We were Soldiers."

Breakup Of U.S. Is Inevitable
By Chuck Baldwin
May 19, 2010

This column is archived at

People all over America are discussing freedom's future. In short, they are
worried. In fact, many are actually talking about State secession. In coffee
shops and cafes, and around dining room tables, millions of people are
speaking favorably of states breaking away from the union. Not since the
turn of the twentieth century have this many people thought (and spoken)
this favorably about the prospect of a State (or group of states) exiting
the union. In my mind, this is a good thing.

Even many of those who oppose the prospect of secession understand the
increasing tyrannical nature of the current central government in
Washington, D.C., and that something must be done about it.

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines tyranny as "1: oppressive
power . . . 2: a government in which absolute power is vested in a single
ruler . . . 3: a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force
. . . 4: a tyrannical act."

Even a casual observer would have to conclude that most of the actions
proceeding forth from DC today match at least Webster's 1st and 3rd
definitions of tyranny. Besides, who would argue the advantage of the
tyranny of an oligarchy over the tyranny of a monarchy? A tyranny of many
cannot be distinguished from a tyranny of one in most cases--especially not
by those poor souls who are at the point of the spear of Government's

The fact is, there is collusion between Big Government and Big Business (as
each feeds and profits off the other) to strip the American people of their
God-given liberties. Without a shadow of a doubt, had America's Founding
Fathers not sagaciously cemented the Second Amendment into the US
Constitution, the Jackboots would have marched over us years ago.

That freedom-loving people are reaching a point of frustration--and even
fury--is quite understandable. And State secession is, very properly, the
last best option for freedomists to maintain fidelity to the principles of
liberty. All of America's founders understood this--all of them! And
millions of modern-day American patriots are just now beginning to become
reacquainted with this great, historic doctrine.

However, whether one subscribes to the doctrine of secession or not is quite
immaterial. The breakup of the US is inevitable! Short of another Great
Awakening, nothing can stop it. And given the spiritual deadness of most
American churches these days, the prospect of a modern-day national revival
seems remote at best.

It is a historical fact that no empire can sustain itself. And America is
more and more becoming a global empire. For the sake of simplicity, I ask
readers to ponder this question: How can one sustain a global economy
without global government to manage and control it? Answer: One can't.

This is why elitists in politics, economics, and the military have been
calling for global government for decades. People such as George H.W. Bush,
Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Walter Cronkite, Secretary-General
Boutros Boutros-Ghali, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Gideon Rachman,
Warren Christopher, Walt Rostow, Richard Gardner, Zbigniew Brzezinski,
Robert Pastor, et al. Furthermore, organizations such as the Council on
Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderbergers, and the Trilateral Commission
are constantly promoting regional or global unification. Moreover,
institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank,
the World Trade Organization (WTO), and, of course, the United Nations (UN)
all contribute to the escalation of globalism.

I have written two previous columns outlining much relevant information on
this very real promotion of globalism. See them at:

Therefore, it is safe to say that, for the most part, America's foreign
policy is (and has been) controlled and manipulated by globalists.
Accordingly, America's armed forces are used more and more as international
policemen to patrol the streets of the world on behalf of this international
cabal of merchants and politicians. The cover for this is the mantra of
fighting an international "war on terrorism." But the real agenda is,
keeping our troops fighting in perpetual war so that they might be available
to the globalists at the UN and US State Department (not to mention
countless "off the books" operations being run by the CIA and a host of
other agencies) for the purpose of maintaining the "global economy" (and
only God knows how many illegal enterprises).

Perpetual war also allows the Machiavellians who desire to turn America into
a police state to increasingly encroach upon constitutionally protected
liberties by keeping the populace in a perpetual state of fear. After all,
as long as our troops are "over there" fighting (and making) enemies, we
will always need Big Brother to keep us safe "over here." And the only way
he can do that is by putting us all in cages; but hey, it's for our own
good, right?

And, of course, this new "global force for good" must itself be reshaped
into an image compatible with the political correctness of the New World
Order. Hence, more and more women are being placed in combat units. In fact,
females are now the fastest growing group of enlistees within the US armed
forces. And for the first time in US history, women are now approved to
serve aboard submarines. (I am sure submariners' wives are thrilled about

"How does flooding the US military with women fit into the scheme of the
globalists?" you ask. Simple. By reducing the overall efficiency and
effectiveness of our military forces, it requires them to be part of a
"coalition" force. Come on, folks, figure it out: our troops are always part
of some sort of global "coalition" army. They always serve in concert with
NATO, or the UN, or at the behest of some other global entity.

And please, I don't need readers to write me with great indignation, calling
me "sexist." Get real! If women can serve in combat equally with men, why
not have an all-female combat infantry division? How about an all-female
tank division? Let's have an all-female Navy warship! What about an
all-female Navy SEAL team or Army Special Forces team? If, then, women are
inefficient in combat as a unit, they are equally inefficient in combat
individually. Wise up, people! It is critical to the globalists controlling
Washington politics that our military be integrated with foreign entities.
Allowing the weaker vessels to dilute the warrior-strength of our combat
units helps to accomplish this in spades!

Folks, this new American empire is not sustainable. Mark it down: the
American empire will follow every other notable empire of antiquity and
collapse under its own weight. The signs are already ubiquitous.

In its attempt to entice illegal aliens (a necessary component to the
globalization of America) by providing them with almost complete and
universal welfare benefits, the Empire has saddled the states with a
monstrous debt and has planted the seeds for its own fragmentation.

The American Southwest is a boiling caldron. Revolutionaries, violent
criminal gangs, agitators, drug runners, human traffickers, and agent
provocateurs--all loyal to Mexico--have been allowed to freely unleash their
anti-American vitriol to the point that, in desperation, the State of
Arizona is now trying to fight back. It is probably too little too late,
however. Both the central government in Washington, D.C., and the national
news media are sympathetic to the cause of La Raza. Look at how those brave
legislators and governor in Arizona have been lampooned by the national
press corps.

The call for the "reconquista" of America's great Southwest will continue to
escalate. It is all part of the globalists' plan to regionalize the United
States. The template is already in place. CFR's Robert Pastor has already
done the legwork. The North American Community (or Union) is past the
drawing table stage; it is now being implemented. The NAFTA superhighway is
being built and La Raza has been unleashed on the frontier. It's only a
matter of time.

Furthermore, take a look at the staggering debt that this government in
Washington, D.C., has burdened the American people with. To talk numbers is
meaningless: they total more than we can possibly begin to fathom. These
numbers shock sensibilities and strain comprehension. In this regard, toss
away all notions of partisan politics. Both major parties in DC have forever
plunged our children and grandchildren's future into a chasm of indebtedness
so deep that it can never be recovered. Never!

Yet again, perpetual war has accomplished its purpose: unmitigated debt has
allowed international bankers to print and loan vast sums of paper money
that can be used to further their dreams of a global economy, complete with
a mutually palatable system of burgeoning global governance.

I say again, the American empire is not sustainable; the breakup of the
United States is inevitable. It is only a matter of time. The real question
is not IF the US will breakup, but WHEN and HOW?

Globalists are already planning America's breakup. Indeed, their plans for
the future global economy DEMAND that America fracture. So, all of those who
want to parade around and pontificate about the "unconstitutionality" and
"impracticality" of secession can do so to their hearts' content. It changes
nothing. The breakup is coming.

What is yet to be seen, of course, is if there will be enough states (the
last vanguards of liberty) with the foresight to recognize the rise of
tyranny and globalism as it approaches, and muster the courage and fortitude
to do what principled patriots and lovers of liberty have always done: draw
their line in the sand for freedom. Call it what you will; debate the
definitions and language all you like; it all comes down to the same thing:
either men fight for freedom and independence or they allow themselves and
their children to be sold into slavery. At some point in the future (how far
in the future, no one knows), we Americans will, once again, have to face
that decision.

In the meantime, keep talking about freedom around your coffee tables; keep
writing about freedom in your books and columns; keep praying about freedom
in your churches and closets; keep dreaming about freedom in your hearts and
minds. Real freedom--where a man can be left alone; where a man can keep
what he earns; where a man can make his own choices; where a man's property
is his own; where harassing agents of an oppressive central government are
nowhere to be found; where a man doesn't have to sell his soul in order to
sell his wares; where a man's worship of God is not subject to political
correctness (or the IRS); and where a man can actually exchange commerce and
correspondence without the prying eyes of Big Brother--is worth any price.

As Barry Goldwater said, "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice."
Amen! And if the pursuit of freedom requires the extremism of secession, I
