"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; may He bless your understanding as you "study to show yourself approved unto God".
Please welcome long-time contributing author, Sister Joan Veon, of the Women's International Media Group, Inc., who has advanced our own four-part understanding on the Black Nobility with her research on the Vatican, whose pope claims triple sovereignty, and thus sovereignty over all rulers, and can be eclipsed only by Queen Elizabeth II who is the titular head of many countries and head of a world religion that does not (yet) recognize the headship of the Roman pope. We understand from Scripture and history and the prophecies of Brother Branham that since it's organization at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council in AD325, the Roman Catholic church is the 'front' behind which the enemy of God and man conspire to gain world hegemony, then destroy and replace that church and all other false religions with the pure Luciferian religion.
Gregory the Great declared against the patriarch of Constantinople, that whosoever should assume the title of "universal bishop" would be "the forerunner of Antichrist." The papacy fulfilled his prophecy. The man who has suffered himself to be called 'Dominus Deus Noster Papa'"Our Lord God the Pope"is surely the apostate of Scripture, who, "as God, sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (Thessalonians 2:4), and will be incarnate by Satan when he is cast down from the heavenlies at the earthquake that marks the end of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 12:7-9; 17:7-13, 18). At his inauguration in St. Peter's Cathedral, seated in his chair with the high altar as his footstool, he vividly "exalts himself above all that is called God."
The following are some of many blasphemous claims made for the papacy by prominent representatives of the Vatican.
"We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" (Pope Leo XIII, in an Encyclical letter, dated June 20, 1894).
"The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ, hidden under a veil of flesh" (The Catholic National, July 1895).
"But the supreme teacher in the Church is the Roman Pontiff. . . [who] requires . . . complete submission and obedience of will . . . as to God Himself" (Pope Leo XIII, the Great Encyclical Letters, p. 193).
"It seems that Pope John Paul II now presides over the universal Church from his place upon Christ's cross" ("Auckland Bishop says Pope Presides from the Cross" Auckland, New Zealand, September 20, 2004, www.Zenit.org).
"Indeed, it is not too much to say that in view of the sublimity of their offices the priests are so many gods" (Pope Innocent III).
The Roman Catholic Church created a vast 'market' on earth for a unique kind of merchandise, for which she had no competitors and unquenchable demand. She claimed that she had the right to sell God's grace, His free act of forgiveness, to the sinners. To this day, this blasphemous power maintains the power to forgive sin.
"This judicial authority will even include the power to forgive sin" (The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 12, "Pope," p. 265).
"And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priest and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse to give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it" (Dignity and Duties of the Priest, p. 27, New York: Benziger Brothers, Printers to the Holy Apostolic See, 1888).
"The priest has the power of the keys, or the power of delivering sinners from hell, of making them worthy of paradise, and of changing them from the slaves of Satan into the children of God. And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priests . . . The Sovereign Master of the universe only follows the servant by confirming in heaven all that the latter decides upon earth" (Liguori, "Duties and Dignities of the Priest," pp. 27-28).
"Thus the priest may, in a certain manner, be called the creator of his Creator, since by saying the words of the consecration, he creates, as it were, Jesus in the sacrament, by giving him a sacramental existence, and produces him as a victim to be offered to the eternal Father. . . The power of the priest is the power of the divine person; for the transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world" (Saint Bernadine of Sienna).
"Priests are the saviors of the world" (Saint Jerome).
The Roman Catholic Church has even altered the Ten Commandments, deleting the second commandment altogether, for it condemned her practices and ritualsthe adoration of gods and lords many (the Virgin Mary and other dead saints). "Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff" (Unam Sanctam Promulgated by Pope Boniface VIII, November 18, 1302).
With respect to the earthquake that will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation, operation "Divine Strake," the proposed explosion in Nevada of 700 tons of ammonium nitrate postponed from last July (see Newsletters 424 and 440) is now scheduled for this coming Spring, and may be just the thing to knock the timbers off the West Coast of the (once) good ship America and allow the warm waters of the Pacific to swallow Los Angeles and the Salton Sea, sending 1,500x300 400 miles of California to Davey Jones' locker. The ideal mask for a little assistance from scalar technology to "shiver me timbers." Fancy a long honeymoon beginning late May? Thank you Captain Ahab. . . I mean Commander-in-Chief George II.

Burma 'orders Christians to be wiped out'
January 21, 2007 The military regime in Burma is intent on wiping out Christianity in the country, according to claims in a secret document believed to have been leaked from a government ministry. Entitled "Programme to destroy the Christian religion in Burma", the incendiary memo contains point by point instructions on how to drive Christians out of the state.
The text, which opens with the line "There shall be no home where the Christian religion is practised", calls for anyone caught evangelising to be imprisoned. It advises: "The Christian religion is very gentleidentify and utilise its weakness."
Its discovery follows widespread reports of religious persecution, with churches burnt to the ground, Christians forced to convert to the state religion, Buddhism, and their children barred from school. . . Full story: telegraph.co.uk
Christian Caplain Dismissed; Muslim Chaplain Promoted
January 23, 2007 Chaplain Lt. Gordon James Klingenschmitt has been court-martialed and dismissed from the US Navy. His crime? Praying in Jesus' name in uniform outside a chapel. You read it right. After 15 1/2 years of exemplary service, Lt. Klingenschmitt is being drummed out of the Navy. . .
"[T]he Pentagon recently promoted a Wahhabi-trained Muslim chaplain who catered to al-Qaida detainees at Guantanamo and fought to establish the first Mosque in Marine Corps history". . . Full story: newswithviews.com

China tries to reassure the World on Space Missile 'aimed at Peace'
January 20, 2007 China signalled yesterday that its first missile strike against an orbiting satellite was intended to force the US into talks aimed at abolishing weapons in space. . .
China is the first country since 1985 to destroy a satellite in space and only the thirdafter America and the former Soviet Unionto master so-called Star Wars technology. The clear message is that if China can shoot down its own orbiter it could also attack satellites operated by other nations. . . Full story: timesonline.co.uk

Escalation against Iran
January 16, 2007 The pieces are moving. They'll be in place by the end of February. The United States will be able to escalate military operations against Iran.
The second carrier strike group leaves the US west coast on January 16. It will be joined by naval mine clearing assets from both the United States and the UK. Patriot missile defense systems have also been ordered to deploy to the Gulf.
Maybe as a guard against North Korea seeing operations focused on Iran as a chance to be aggressive, a squadron of F-117 stealth fighters has just been deployed to Korea.
This has to be called escalation. We have to remind ourselves, just as Iran is supporting groups inside Iraq, the United States is supporting groups inside Iran. Just as Iran has special operations troops operating inside Iraq, we've read the United States has special operations troops operating inside Iran.
Just as Iran is supporting Hamas, two weeks ago we found out the United States is supporting arms for Abbas. Just as Iran and Syria are supporting Hezbollah in Lebanon we're now learning the White House has approved a finding to allow the CIA to support opposition groups inside Lebanon. Just as Iran is supporting Syria, we've learned recently that the United States is going to fund Syrian opposition groups. . .
As one of the last steps before a strike, we'll see USAF tankers moved to unusual places, like Bulgaria. These will be used to refuel the US- based B-2 bombers on their strike missions into Iran. When that happens, we'll only be days away from a strike. Full story: counterpunch.org campaigniran.org

Vitamin Seller made a Criminal
December 15, 2006 After three years of apparent persecution by the UK medicines regulator, a Swansea man, Jim Wright, was yesterday criminalised by the Swansea Crown Court for selling vitamins and herbs. Jim Wright had operated a small business selling natural health products for some years before being raided for the first time in May 2003, then again two years later, by the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA). During these unannounced dawn raids, his stock was taken, thus preventing him from running his business. The vast majority of his stock comprised common garden herbal products the like of which can legally be bought from high street health food stores across the UK. Emerging from the Court room, Wright said, 'I think given the wealth of false evidence that was presented in Court, the whole thing's been a total farce. Yet in the process they've managed to make me a criminal.

The Rise of Royalty in World Affairs
By Joan M. Veon (pictured)
Who is the power behind the United Nations? After further research there is no doubt in my mind that all the world's royal families do homage to the British Royal Family, the most powerful royal family in the world. It should also be mentioned that the Rothschild's have worked very, very closely with the House of Windsor, financing the Bank of England, the Boer War, and other wars expanding the British Commonwealth [to the profit of the Empire of the City of London Ed].
What do all of these royal houses share in common? The link is their common lineage. They are all blood related in one way or the other in some cases, with the exception of the papacy. They all pay homage to the Queen of England. They all engage in various activities that enforce, embellish and expand the evil philosophy of Sustainable Development and the pagan environmental philosophy of Gaia worship (the concept and practice of worshipping earth as a deity, which was put forth at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit and in Freemasonry). Lastly, many of the presidents of the United States have royal ancestryincluding our current President, George W. Bush.
The Holy See
People do not think of the Holy See, or the Vatican, as being royal. However, the Papal See is considered by the world's oldest authority on royalty, The Almanach de Gotha, to be the oldest monarchy in the world. That makes the Pope a King and the Cardinals of the Church princes, equal to the sons of Kings. Furthermore, the Pope is not only royal but, as everyone knows, the head of a world religion, and the ruler of a recognized country, known as, the Vatican. The only other personage in the world with this ranking is the ruler of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is head of the world's second oldest monarchy, is the head of the Anglican Church, and is the ruler of Britain. Furthermore, her titles show that the army, navy, and air force of the United Kingdom not only report to her, but are hers. They are literally "Her Majesty's Army," "Her Majesty's Navy," and "Her Majesty's Air Force".
The Almanach de Gotha and the Holy See
The Almanach de Gotha was re-published in 1999 for the first time, since World War II, as a result of the reunification of Germany and the restoration of rights to the historic title. From 1763 to 1944 the Gotha was the ultimate authority on the reigning, and formerly reigning, houses of Europe. It focuses, primarily, on families, whose ancestry can be traced back to the Roman Empire (AD26BC-363) and to the Holy Roman Empire (AD936-1804), which was an effort to restore the glories of The Roman Republic (509-27BC). We must remember that all of Europe was under feudalism, which means that only the most powerful or cunning were entitled to lands, castles, and titles because they were the ruling king, prince, duke or lord. Unfortunately, today, we see feudalism, once again, becoming the rule of the day, through the oppressive policies of the United Nations and all of its related organs.
King Juan Carlos I of Spain is the president of the Societe des Amis de l'Almanach de Gotha (Society of Friends of the Almanach de Gotha). King Michael I of Romania is chairman. Prince Edward, Duke of Anhalt, and Prince Karl-Emich (Furst) zu Leningen serve as deputy chairmen. The Comite de Patronage (Committee of Patrons) includes Archduke Dr. Otto von Habsburg, Crown Prince Osman VI of Turkey, Prince Napoleon, Prince Dom Pedro Orleans-Braganca, along with thirteen other royal personages from all over Europe. [Also see Associzioni dei Nobili del Sacro Romano Impero (Holy Roman Empire Association)].
This book has been described as one of the most important books for recognizing and knowing those who are truly royal. If your name is not in this book, then you are not royalty.
The Almanach is divided into two parts: "Part One Families" appears to contain the more important royal families which are reigning sovereign houses, described as, "Genealogies of the Sovereign Houses of Europe and South America." "Part Two Families" lists German and some non-German, non-sovereign princely and ducal houses. This part is described as "Genealogies of the Mediatized Princes and Princely Counts of Europe and the Holy Roman Empire." Mediatized sovereign houses applies only to certain families which occupied territories within the Holy Roman Empire, and its successor states in what is, now, considered modern Germany and Austria. The Latin root of the word "Mediatized" is "media", meaning "between." Its use comes from the number of layers of allegiance (in a feudal sense) between a nobleman and his suzerain. In the Holy Roman Empire the ultimate feudal superior was the Emperor, elected by the great Electors. An "immediate" fief was held by feudal tenure, directly from the Emperor, with no intervening superior Lord. When such a fief was placed under the authority of a feudal superior, other than the Emperor, and that superior was, himself, a tenant within the Empire, this fief was "mediatized." According to The Almanach, several hundred such "immediate" states existed under the Holy Roman Empire. Duke and Prince Jean Engelbert d'Arenberg has explained this, as follows:
The Imperial States (Reichssande) were the real pillars of the Holy Roman Empire. They consisted mainly of the princes and counts of the Empire who possessed immediate territories therein; i.e., fiefs that were held directly of the Emperor himself, and who had, each of them, a vote and a seat in the Imperial Diet. The holders of these Imperial States and all those who were of equal birth with them constituted the High Nobility.
The countries listed in Part One include: Albania, Andorra, Anhalt, Austria, Baden, Bavaria, Belgium, Bonaparte, Bourbon-Orleans, Bourbon Parma, Bourbon-Two Scillies, Brazil, Bulgaria, Denmark, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Greece, Hanover, Hesse, Hohenzollern, Holstein, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lippe, Luxembourg, Mecklenburg, Monaco, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Oldenburg, Portugal, Prussia, Reuss, Romania, Russia, Saxony, Schaumburg-Lippe, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Waldeck, Wurttemberg, Yugoslavia/Serbia, the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Malta, and the Holy See. While we would expect to see the reigning rulers of Monaco (Prince Rainer), Belgium (King Albert II), Denmark (Queen Margareth II), Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Queen Elizabeth II), and a few others included in this section, we would, mostly likely, not expect to see the Holy See. However, according to the Almanach de Gotha, the Holy See is high royalty:
The Holy Seealso called the Papal See or sometimes the Holy Apostolic See is the See of Saint Peter of Bethsaida in Galilee, Prince of the Apostles, personally established in Rome in the first century of Christianity having received from Jesus Christ the suprema potestas pontificia to be transmitted to his Successors. . . Besides its dignity of Patriarch of the West, the Universal Primacy of the Petrine See within the Church founded by Christ, as well as its sovereignty have been recognized from earliest times, also before the fall of the Roman Empire. The successors of Saint Peter form the uninterrupted line of Popes until today. The Incumbent of the Holy See is usually considered by Christian sovereign families as the "Father of the Family of Kings"; also since His Holiness represents the oldest Monarchy in Europe [emphasis added]. Charlemagne, first Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire (800-1806), was crowned in Rome on Christmas eve 799/800 by Pope Saint Leo III (795-816) [Pope Leo came from the powerful and ruthless Medici family]. Countless other Sovereigns have received their original or later investiture or anointment during their coronation from the Pope or his Legates . . . Today, many sovereigns or Heads of State inform the Pope of their succession and other events concerning their families. Besides purely ecclesiastical confirmations of dignities, all popes, since the early Middle Ages, have granted nobility also outside of their immediate civil or temporal jurisdiction. . . The triple sovereignty of His Holiness the Pope in Person, the Holy See, and of the State of Vatican City, although united, are therefore understood as distinct in law and practice.
International law recognizes the sovereignty [not being subject to anyone on earth] of the Pope, which is triple: personal, as Incumbent of the Holy See which itself is sovereign, and as Sovereign of the State of Vatican City [ruler of a country]. His Holiness personally sends Cardinal Legates and Cardinal Envoys, Apostolic Nuncio's or Apostolic Delegates (always archbishops) principally as the Incumbent of the Holy Seewhile the sovereign State of Vatican City is a member of some international organizationsAs far as honors conferred by the Holy See are concerned, the Almanach de Gotha traditionally confines itself to the College of Cardinals since its members are considered as princes of the Church, equal to the sons of reigning monarchs [emphasis added], as well as citizens of the State of Vatican City if residing in Rome.
The Papacy being considered the oldest monarchy in Christendom [emphasis added] the sovereign (or Supreme) Pontiff is its first Monarch and hence customarily also called Pater Pricipum & Regum and addressed as Most Holy Father or Your Holiness or sometimes Most August Pontiff.
According to The Almanach, the description and titles of the Pope are: His Holiness Pope John Paul II (now Benedict XVI) Sovereign Pontiff, Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Church Universal, Patriarch of the West, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the State of Vatican City, Servant of the servants of God.
The Vatican is guided by The Sacred College, which consists of three orders, and is the Pope's and Universal Church's Senate. While there are a few exceptions, cardinals are consecrated bishops, using their Episcopal titles only if belonging to the Cardinalitial Order of Bishops or Priests. Interestingly enough, they are considered as Roman Princes (all considered equal to Princes of the blood royal of any country. That means they are equal to Bonnie Prince Charles!) They follow immediately after the reigning Sovereign Pontiff and rank with the Princes of reigning Houses. Cardinal Legates a latere represent the Sovereign Pontiff in Person and are never outranked, being during their missionon equality with Emperors and Kings, or other Heads of States, all addressed as Brothers or Sisters, this being constantly recognized, since 1157. Cardinal Envoys are outranked only by Heads of State. [emphasis added].
Clearly, this information puts the Vatican in a whole new light. Even though there is no blood line from the Apostle Peter to the Pope, the Pope is considered equal to royalty and answers to no one on earth. It appears that the Vatican can take mere men and make them royalequal to the princes of the reigning houses. Does this mean each diocese is equal to the fiefdoms of the temporal monarchies?
The United Nations and the Holy See
The Holy See is a major player at the United Nations. It participates in all the conferences and meetings and has its own seat in the General Assembly. A few years ago, there was a move to throw them out. However, groups like Focus on the Family and other conservative organizations got behind the Vatican to keep thembecause of their Christian stance on certain limited matters. For example at the United Nations Conference on Population and Development in 1994 the Holy See held out in negotiating for a definition of "family," all the while agreeing with the remainder of the huge programme of action. At the Social Summit in 1995 the Holy See agreed with the entire programme of action, as well as, all the other UN mega-conferences that advocate control of the world's resources, through the environmental agenda; transferring wealth, via public-private partnerships; privatization; and giving monies to meet the United Nations Millennium Goals by 2015. Support for UN Millennium Goals amounts to nothing more than fattening Swiss bank accounts in the name of the poor!
Country Politics, Fiefdoms and the Holy See
Basically, we could consider the pope a kingeven though there is no consistent blood relation between the various popes (despite vast numbers of acts of nepotism by popes for lesser positions). Researcher Linda Liotta has provided the following information from her research on the Holy See.
To illustrate from the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (www.ccel.org), quoting Philip Schaff's book, History of the Christian Church, we read this description of late medieval popes:
The ten pontiffs who sat on the pontifical throne, 1450-1517 . . . embellished Rome and the Vatican with the treasures of art . . . papal ambition entered more freely than devotion to the interests of religion. . .
This period was the flourishing age of nepotism in the Vatican. The bestowment of papal favors by the pontiffs upon their nephews and other relatives dates as a recognized practice from Boniface VIII . . . Ignoring the instincts of modesty and the impulse of religion, the popes bestowed the red hat upon their young nephews and grandnephews and upon the sons of princes, in spite of their utter disqualification both on the ground of intelligence and of morals . . . The cases in which the red hat was conferred for piety or learning were rare, while the houses of Mantua, Ferrara and Modena, the Medici of Florence, the Sforza of Milan, the Colonna and the Orsini had easy access to the Apostolic camera . . .
The cardinals vied with kings in wealth and luxury, and their palaces were enriched with the most gorgeous furnishings and precious plate, and filled with servants. They set an example of profligacy which they carried into the Vatican itself. The illegitimate offspring of pontiffs were acknowledged without a blush, and the sons and daughters of the highest houses in Italy, France and Spain were sought in marriage for them by their indulgent fathers.
[Pope] Alexander VI. [1492-1503], whom we have before known as Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, has the notorious distinction of being the most corrupt of the popes of the Renaissance period. Even in the judgment of Catholic historians, his dissoluteness knew no restraint and his readiness to abase the papacy for his own personal ends, no bounds.
The possession of the lands in the West, discovered [by Christopher Columbus in 1492] and yet to be discovered, was assigned to Spain and Portugal [by Pope Alexander VI] to be held and governed in perpetuity,in perpetuum,. . . As [Saint] Peter's successor, Alexander claimed the right to give away the Western Continent, and his gift involved an unending right of tenure.
As you will recall, it was King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, who funded Christopher Columbus' voyage to America. Ferdinand and Isabella owed much to Pope Alexander VI from the time before he was pope, when he was still Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia of Spain. You see, twenty-one years prior in 1471, Borgia (Alexander VI) had so strongly influenced Pope Sixtus IV that Sixtus had issued a Bull of dispensation, annulling Ferdinand's marriage, thus freeing him to marry Isabella and uniting the Kingdoms of Aragon and Castile. For this favor Borgia was given the dukedom of Gandia. Later, as Pope, he had the power to assign control over the new land of America, since King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella had funded Columbus' voyage.
Pope Alexander VI married his daughter, Lucrezia Borgia, to Alfonso d'Este from one of Italy's most powerful families in another move to secure his power base. Lucrezia's father-in-law, Ercole d'Este, was a member of the British Royal family's Order of the Garter (Sarah Bradford, Lucrezia Borgia, Viking, NY, 2004.)
So, perhaps, what we see is that the OFFICE of king, prince, duke, lord, or pope really carries with it the power of the position, as a result of previous and present conquests. We, then, have to ask, "What is 'government'?" Who controls government? Furthermore, while all of these countries, as promoted by the media, would have you believe the modern royal ruler has no power, this is not true. Therefore, another question is, "Are all of these countries fiefdoms to the British royal family in England?" I believe that this is what you will see if you investigate the matter further.
Jacobitism was the political movement dedicated to the restoration of the Stuart kings to the thrones of England and Scotland. The term "Jacobite" is derived from the word "Jacobus," the Latin form of the name "James." The rise of this movement came as a result of the deposition of James II and VII in 1688, when he was replaced by his daughter, Mary II, jointly with her husband and first cousin, William of Orange. The Stuarts lived on the European continent and, occasionally, attempted to regain the throne with the aid of France or Spain. The emblem of the Jacobites is the White Rose of York. The Catholic Church opposed usury. The deposed Stuarts, who were Catholic, had refused to allow a central bank in their country. Jacobitism propounds the belief in the divine right of kings to rule, rather than have their power delegated by a Parliament.
According to one website, the Stuart kings of Scotland were removed from the British throne because they would not grant a charter to anyone who was, either, a Jesuit or, who wanted to establish an English national bank. King James II was deposed, and in his place the Dutchman, William of Orange, was invited to take the throne. He was a tool of the powerful Wisselbank of Amsterdam.
According to the Bank of England:
Central to the success of the Dutch was the Amsterdam Wisselbank, which had been founded in 1609. It provided power for the Dutch economy by lending to the City of Amsterdam, the State, and traded in the form of the Dutch East India Company. The bank of Amsterdam, known as the WisselBank, preceded the Bank of England by 85 years. It was established to finance the spice trade. Spain and Portugal sent out ships to navigate the world, trying to find the shortest and most direct route to the Indies. While Portugal dominated trade with India, England and Holland wanted in on the action. Both England and Holland established trading companies to try and monopolize trade with India, known as the East and West India Companies. England was in 1600 and the Dutch in 1602. The Dutch sold shares of stock in their company by 1609. By 1670, the Dutch East India Company was the wealthiest corporation in the world, employing 50,000 workers with a fleet of over 200 ships, paying a 40% dividend. (Finance Sense UniversityWhence & PencePart V: The Pounding, by Douglas V. Gnazzo).
The Bank of England was chartered in 1694 by William and Mary. Thus, the first usury central bank was incorporated in England. After it was incorporated peace and quiet returned to England. No more civil wars. Since the king was also head of the Church of England, this gave legitimacy to USURY. That is, a Roman Catholic monarch would not have been able to charter the Bank of England because, officially, the Vatican was still against usury. The Bank of England financed four wars with France in America, known as the French and Indian Wars. In America the colonists were very poor and bartered their goods and service with each other, rather than use currency. Eventually, this system evolved to Colonial Script. The Bank of England took steps to destroy this practice in America.
Country Politics Today
One of the first world leaders about whom I became knowledgeable was Norway's Prime Minister, Gro Harlaam Brundtland. At the United Nations Conference on Population and Development in 1994 I heard someone ask her about being a member of the Socialist Internationalto which she replied that she was vice president. I was shocked. However, when I started understanding who she was and her key position on various commissions that supported the United Nations Agenda 21 Programme of Action, I began to follow her activities.
Gro Harlaam became the party leader of the Norwegian Labor Party (DNA). Founded in 1887, it first ran candidates in parliamentary elections (called Storting) in 1894. The DNA party is the leading partner in the center-left Red-Green Coalition, which won a majority in the 2005 elections. From being a radical alternative to the political establishment it now has dominance in a number of areas. It was closely aligned with the Communist International. In fact a number of its members left to form the Community Party. In 1927 the social democrats were reunited with labor. Today, the DNA is, officially, a social democratic party, committed to liberal, democratic ideals. It has supported market policies, allowing for privatization of government-held assets and services.
Gro Harlaam Brundtland was Norway's elected prime minister from 1981-1992. A physician, she earned a Master of Public Health at Harvard in 1965. She was Minister for Environmental Affairs from 1974 to 1979. She was Norway's first female Prime Minister.
With the birth of the United Nations in 1945 many, many different commissions, studies and reports have flourished, all espousing and endorsing ways to take more sovereignty from nation-states and transfer it to the, recently established, UN world governmental structure. As such, a number of European prime ministers from Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, France, and the UK have played key roles on a number of these commissions.
Gro Harlaam Brundtland ended up chairing a very important committee for the United Nations which issued a report that is credited with coining the phrase, "sustainable development." It is interesting to note that numerous key people from Sweden, Norway and Denmark have played key roles in furthering the UN agenda. They were subsequently rewarded with the Nobel Peace Prize. Previous key commissions which built the foundation for what the Brundtland Commission would conclude are: Common Security a Blueprint for Survival by the Independent Commission on Disarmament and Security Issues and chaired by Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme. German Prime Minister Willy Brandt chaired the next report, North-SouthA Program for Survival, in which Prime Ministers Edward Heath (UK), Olaf Palme (Sweden), Jan Pronk (Netherlands) and Goran Ohlin (Sweden) played a key part, as well, along with Shridath Ramphal, who was both secretary general of the British Commonwealth and President of Guyana. Then came the World Commission on Environment and Development, chaired by Norwegian Prime Minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland, known as the "Brundtland Commission." This commission laid the foundation and framework for Agenda 21, which was made public and supposedly agreed to by everyoneall attending countriesat the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992. UNCED is also known as the "Earth Summit." Maurice Strong, who was the Secretary-General of that meeting, also served on the Brundtland Commission. Prince Charles commended the Brundtland Commission for "bringing the phrase 'sustainable development' into all of our vocabularies."
Dr. Brundtland was elected Director-General of the World Health Organization in May 1998. She established the Commission on Macroeconomics and Health, which was chaired by Dr. Jeffrey Sachs from Columbia University. She has been listed by the Financial Times as the fourth most influential European for the last 25 yearsbehind Pope John Paul II, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Margaret Thatcher. In short, there is an "inner circle" in which everything these minions do is hailed by seemingly respectable groups as being important and major milestones for the necessary evolution of the world (into world government).
In going to the Internet's Wikipedia, I was surprised to find that it discussed the role of Gustav III becoming a Freemason. According to another website (www.frimurarorden.se/eng/history.html), Freemasonry was brought to Sweden by Count Axel Wrede-Sparre, a Cavalry Officer, who, during service in Paris, had become a Freemason. When he returned along with a number of his Freemason brothers, he initiated and passed his brother-in-law, Count Carl Gustaf Tessin, into the lodge in 1735. The lodge they created consisted of higher nobility. Count Carl Fredrik Scheffer was elected National Grand Master in 1753. In 1756 Carl Fredrik Eckleff along with six others formed the Scottish Lodge l'Innocente in Stockholm. The Swedish National Grand Lodge was recognized by the Grand Lodge of England in 1770. HRH, the Duke of Kent, has been the Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England, since 1967. All of the Grand Lodges in the world are recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England, which is an authority on the recognition of the Grand Lodges of mainstream, Anglo-Saxon Freemasonry. The Swedish version of Freemasonry was further developed by Duke Karl, who later became King Karl XIII. All of the Grand Masters in Sweden have belonged to the Swedish Royal House for the past 200 years. The symbol for Swedish Freemasonry is the same symbol used by the Knights Templar. It should be noted that all of the countries discussed in this book have Masonic lodges, which are recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).
The Nobel Prize
The Nobel Prizes are awarded annually to people who have completed outstanding research, invented ground-breaking techniques or equipment, or made an outstanding contribution to society in physics, chemistry, literature, peace, medicine or physiology and economics. The Prizes were instituted by Swedish scientist, Alfred Nobel, through his will. Alfred Nobel was a descendant of a long line of esteemed scientists. His father invented modern plywood.
Alfred Nobel was the inventor of dynamite and ballistics. During his lifetime, he became uneasy with the military usage of his inventions and was condemned as a "merchant of death" by his brother. Alfred left 94% of his $4.233M estate to the establishment of the five prizes. One of the prizes is the Nobel Peace Prize, which goes to "the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity among nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies, and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses." It should be noted that if there was a true desire on the part of Nobel for peace that it has been used by the globalists for their purposes. Today the philosophy of "world peace" fosters the utopian idea of world government as the solution for today's problems. The Nobel Peace Prize has basically been awarded to major globalists who support and are working for world government.
Nobel Prizes were first awarded in 1901, five years after Alfred Nobel's death. The Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics has been awarded, since 1969, by the central bank of Sweden (The Sveriges Riksbank), since it is not officially part of the Alfred Nobel will. The Peace Prize is awarded, annually, in Oslo, Norway and is presided over by the King of Norway, rather than in Stockholm, Sweden, where the other Nobel Prizes are awarded by the king and queen of Sweden. The Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony is followed by a Nobel Peace Prize Concert, which is broadcast to over 150 countries and more than 450 million households around the world. Unlike the other prizes, which are awarded, usually, two to three decades after the intellectual achievement, the Peace Prize is awarded based on newer achievements.
Previous recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize include: Jean Henri Dunant, founder of the Red Cross; Frederik Bajer, honorary president of the Permanent International Peace Bureau; Woodrow Wilson a founder of the League of Nations; Charles Dawes, chairman of the Allied Reparation Commission and originator of the Dawes Plan (founded the Bank for International Settlements); Frank B. Kellogg for the Briand-Kellogg Pact†; Nicholas Murray Butler, for promoting the Briand-Kellogg Pact†; The Viscount Cecil of Chelwood, founder and president of the International Peace Campaign; Cordell Hull for co-initiating the United Nations; Lord Boyd-Orr, director-general Food and Agricultural Organization, president National Peace Council, and President of the World Union of Peace Organizations; and Albert Lutuli, president of the African National Congress. Other recipients include: Albert Schweitzer, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Jimmy Carter, Henry Kissinger, Mikhail Gorbachev, Yasser Arafat, and, soon to be replaced UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan. You can see that many of the recipients favor a world governmental form of "peace".
Interestingly enough, a parallel exists between Alfred Nobel and Cecil Rhodes, who were contemporaries. Cecil John Rhodes, who died in 1903, also, left his fortune to a causeto further the British Empire. As a result, the Chatham House, formally known as the Royal Institute for International Affairs, was established to carry out Rhodes' dream. Is it possible that both men had the same cause in mindthat of furthering the British Empire? Consider the fact that the king of Sweden, who gives out the Noble Prizes, is a Knight of the Most Solemn Order of the Garter, indicating his direct allegiance to Queen Elizabeth II.
(†The Briand-Kellog Pact was a Treaty between the United States and 15 other countries, signed by the presidents of Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, and Poland, along with the kings of Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, and the Emperor of Japan. It was fostered in the United States by the president of Columbia University, Nicholas Murray Butler, and French Prime Minister Aristide Briand. The Peace Treaty stipulated that "the time has come when a frank renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy should be made." The Treaty "had no enforcement mechanism, permitted 'defensive' war, and had no expiration date" (www.historycentral.com). Nicholas Murray Butler, who shared in the Nobel Peace Prize with Frank B. Kellogg, founded Columbia University, was its president for 42 years, persuaded Andrew Carnegie to establish the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and was CEIP's president for 20 years. As such, Butler was an internationalist or globalist working along with many other Nobel Peace Prize recipients, for a world governmental organization).
It appears that there is a major war going on between those who want to rule the world. We see an interface between key monarchies in concert with their governments, commissions established for the sole purpose of changing the structure of the world as we know it. The world's key monarchies along with their respective prime ministers and parliaments are working together for world government using the United Nations as the organizing structure. What is a king, queen, or prince? Nothing but the strongest bully in the land! While our daughters are taught fairy tales about "how her prince will come," the bottom line is that they are all working to return the structure of nation-states to feudalism where they reign as a result of greater power. Various monarchies are all participating in different ways with the United Nations, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization in numerous projects with some being chosen "Goodwill Ambassadors." It is interesting to note that most of the royal families are environmentalists. I think of how God created the World: the airatmosphere, skies and outer space; wateroceans, rivers and streams; living creaturescattle, pigs, horses, chickens; forests, and earth. They, the environmentalists, have found ways to take control of the earth so it can be protected and preservedby them, of course! For example, Prince Bernard of Holland and Prince Philip of England have helped to create major environmental groups to transfer the wealth of the world under the guise of "environmental degradation".
It should be noted that monarchies, like government or marriage, demand work in order to continue. The monarchies have been adapting to politics as needed in order to expand. They ARE doing what they always did: adding to their kingdom. What we are seeing is nothing less than 21st Century Feudalism. We the people have been reduced to serfs. Our value is dependent on our ability to produce. Maybe that is what Agenda 21 and sustainable development was all about in the first place. It is not enough to pray over our world, we must know who the main players are and how they got there. nl460.htm
