THE PRESIDENT &
March 3, 2008
Writes from Sacramento, California:
Hi Mr. K.
This is P.C. Dad
and I came across this article. It’s old but very interesting about
Bush and the Vatican.
Have a good one –
G. C. (P.C.’s Dad)
Dear P. C. - You
and your dad are on to something here - we are exceedingly familiar
with the contents of this article (see below) and of the "story"
itself. One thing this clearly demonstrates: The incredible and
ongoing relationship that religion - in particular, the Christian
religion - plays with politics - and, in particular, the politics of
"American Empire." - Your dad is right (previous conversations) - the
chances of this "thing" going into some form of marshal law PRIOR to
the actual Presidential election (2008) are exceedingly great.
Antichrist and his spirit are alive and well - the Antichrist will NOT
know who he himself is until he is TRANSFORMED into the Beast halfway
through what is known as the Seventieth Week of Daniel (Daniel
9:26-27). In other words - the "BODY" of
Antichrist, much like Judas Iscariot will be "available" for the first
3.5 years of the 70th Week - but in the "midst of the week" Antichrist
will transform into the BEAST as Satan (as he did with Judas) shall
enter into his bodily sanctuary and declare himself as god!
This entitlement of THE BEAST is accrued as a result of a "wound in
his head" (Rev.
13:3) - and from that formidable wound, this
Antichrist shall resurrect through the indwelling of Satan himself
into the spirit of Antichrist (Rev.
18:14) - who, up to this time, was a truly
magnificent figure - someone who was able to orchestrate a world-wide
peace treaty (Daniel
9:27; Isaiah 18) involving Israel and those
nations whose belligerence surrounds her - but in the "midst of the
week" (Daniel's 70th) he will break the covenant and commence his
indignations/desolations against both Israel and the Church in the
crucible of what the Bible terms: THE GREAT TRIBULATION--these
"desolations" will persist through to the 1,290th Day (or 30 days
beyond the 1,260th Day or the latter half of the 70th Week of Daniel
with these 30 days constituting the 30 days of the "sounding of the
Seventh or Last Trumpet" - which will be the time of the Wrath of God
and the Lamb upon the "earth dwellers."
There is much we have said regarding this in our writings--but to
contemplate the amazing links between "his holiness" and the "imperial
presidency" is most amazing indeed - question: Did John Paul II
intuitively know and recognize something in Bush that we, or most of
us, did not? It is most difficult to say; however, his actions most
definitely lead us to believe he did!
Yet, he was unsuccessful - and does this not play into the verse: WHO
IS ABLE TO MAKE WAR WITH THE BEAST! (Rev.
13:4). Unwittingly does the Antichrist pursue
his exploits--not knowing that it is he who shall commit the final
betrayal and that against National Israel--against the Sanctuary of
both man's spirit (in the body of Antichrist--II
Thess. 2:3-4), as well as against the Sanctuary
that shall be rebuilt by his false Messianic commitments (Daniel
8:13-14; 12:11) embodied and engraved within the
infamous TREATY OF HELL AND DEATH (Isaiah
I pray that the salvation of your father is imminent and that your
thirst for God's Word and the prophetic Scriptures as a young man will
increase and become great as the day approaches. Your father's
insights into what lies behind so much of this facade is right
on--now, he must commit his gift to the Lord by surrendering his heart
to His maker by confessing his sins, claiming the shed blood of Jesus
and giving all his gifts to the Almighty--then the Lord will
abundantly use him for His Kingdom! At issue here is what we're all
faced with: I can do all through Christ - or "without Christ, I am
nothing!" We start by admitting our total inadequacy and by embracing
all that He is and can be in us--but what do we give up? NOTHING!
When compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us!!
We are here but for a season and we must make the most of it for His
everlasting Kingdom--we have here no "abiding place" - but we, as
Abraham and the other prophets, "look for a city whose builder and
maker is God" (Hebrews
God bless and keep engaged in the fight!
Concerns Raised by
Washington, D.C.-based investigative journalist and former
intelligence officer with the National Security Agency drops some big
bombshells in George W. Bush's spiritual back yard. This highly
respected journalistic veteran quotes sources closest to the Vatican
as saying that Pope John Paul II suspects that the Bush administration
had foreknowledge of the 9-11 attacks. He also points out the obvious:
Bush behavior and attitude are anything but Christian. – MCR]

APRIL 28, 2003, 1700 hrs PDT (FTW) -- George W. Bush proclaims himself
a born-again Christian. However, Bush and fellow self-anointed
neo-Christians like House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, John Ashcroft,
and sports arena Book of Revelations carnival hawker Franklin Graham
appear to wallow in a "Christian" blood lust cult when it comes to
practicing the teachings of the founder of Christianity. This cultist
form of Christianity, with its emphasis on death rather than life, is
also worrying the leaders of mainstream Christian religions,
particularly the Pope.
One only has to check out Bush's record as Governor of Texas to see
his own preference for death over life. During his tenure as Governor,
Bush presided over a record setting 152 executions, including the 1998
execution of fellow born-again Christian Karla Faye Tucker, a
convicted murderer who later led a prison ministry. Forty of Bush's
were carried out in 2000, the year the Bush presidential campaign was
spotlighting their candidate's strong law enforcement record. The
Washington Post's Richard Cohen reported in October 2000 that one of
the execution chamber's "tie-down team" members, Fred Allen, had to
prepare so many people for lethal injections during 2000,
he quit his job in disgust.
Bush mocked Tucker's appeal for clemency. In an interview with Talk
magazine, Bush imitated Tucker's appeal for him to spare her life -
pursing his lips, squinting his eyes, and in a squeaky voice saying,
"Please don't kill me." That went too far for former GOP presidential
candidate Gary Bauer, himself an evangelical Christian. "I think it is
nothing short of unbelievable that the governor of a major state
running for president thought it was acceptable to mock a woman he
decided to put to death," said Bauer.
A former Texas Department of Public Safety officer, a devout Roman
Catholic, told this reporter that evidence to the contrary, Bush was
more than happy to ignore DNA data and documented cases of
prosecutorial misconduct to send
innocent people to the Huntsville, Texas lethal injection chamber. He
said the number of executed mentally retarded, African Americans, and
those who committed capital crimes as minors was proof that Bush was
a "phony Christian." When faced with similar problems in Illinois,
Governor George Ryan, a Republican, commuted the death sentences of
his state's death row inmates and released others after discovering
they were convicted. Yet the Republican Party is pillorying Ryan and
John Ashcroft's Justice Department continues to investigate the former
Governor for political malfeasance as if Bush and Ashcroft are without
sin in such matters. Hypocrisy certainly rules in the Republican
Bush's blood lust has been extended across the globe. He has given the
CIA authority to assassinate those deemed a threat to U.S. national
interests. Bush has virtually suspended Executive Orders 11905 (Gerald
Ford 12306 (Jimmy Carter), and 12333 (Ronald Reagan) which prohibit
the assassination of foreign leaders. Bush's determination to kill
Saddam Hussein, his family, and his top leaders with precision-guided
missiles and tactical nuclear weapon-like Massive Ordnance Air Blast
(MOAB) bombs is yet another indication of Bush's disregard for his
Republican and Democratic predecessors. It now appears that in his
zeal to kill Hussein, innocent civilian patrons of a Baghdad
restaurant were killed by one of Bush's precision Joint Direct Attack
Munitions (JDAMs). Like it or not, Saddam Hussein was recognized by
over 100 nations as the leader of Iraq -- a member state of the United
like North Korea' Kim Jong Il, Syria's Bashir Assad, and Iran's
Mohammed Khatami, are covered by Executive Order 12333, which the Bush
mouthpieces claim is still in effect. Bush's "Christian" blood cult
sees no other option than death for those who become his enemies. This
doctrine is found no place in Christian theology.
Bush has not once prayed for the innocent civilians who died as a
result of the U.S. attack on Iraq. He constantly "embeds" himself with
the military at Goebbels-like speech fests and makes constant
references to God when he refers to America's "victory" in Iraq, as if
God endorses his sordid killing spree. He makes no mention of the
children, women, and old men killed by America's "precision-guided"
missiles and bombs and trigger-happy U.S. troops. In fact, Bush revels
in indiscriminate blood letting. Since he never experienced such
killing in Southeast Asia, when he was AWOL from his Texas Air
National Guard unit, Bush just does not seem to understand the horror
of a parent watching one's children having their heads and limbs blown
off in a sudden blast of shrapnel or children witnessing their parents
burning to death with their own body fat nurturing the flames.
Bush and his advisers, previously warned that Iraq's ancient artifacts
and collection of historical documents and books were in danger of
being looted or destroyed, instead, sat back while the Baghdad and
Mosul museums and Baghdad Library were ransacked and destroyed. Cult
leaders have historically attempted to destroy history in order to
invent their own. The Soviets tried to obliterate Russia's Orthodox
traditions, turning a number of churches into warehouses and animal
barns. Cambodia's Pol Pot tried to wipe out Buddhism's famed Angkor
Wat shrine in an attempt to stamp
out his country's Buddhist history. In March 2001, while they were
negotiating with the Bush administration on a natural gas pipeline.
Afghanistan's Taliban blew up two massive 1600-year old Buddhas in
Bamiyan. The Bush administration, itself run by fanatic religious
cultists, barely made a fuss about the loss of the relics. It would
not be the first time the cultists within the Bush administration
ignored the pillaging of history's treasures.
The ransacking of Iraq's historical treasures is explainable when one
considers what the blood cult Christians really think about Islam.
Franklin Graham, the heir to the empire built up by his anti-Semitic
father, Billy Graham, has decided being anti-Muslim is far more
financially rewarding than being anti-Jewish. Billy Graham, history
notes from the Nixon tapes, complained about the Jewish stranglehold
on the media and Jews being responsible for pornography.
Franklin Graham continues to enjoy his father's unfettered and
questionable access to the White House. But in the case of Bush, the
younger Graham has a fanatic adherent. Graham has called Islam a "very
evil and wicked" religion. He then announces he wants to go to Iraq.
Graham obviously sees an opportunity to convert Muslims and
unrepentant Eastern Christians, who owe their allegiance to Roman and
Greek prelates, to his perverted form of blood cult Christianity.
Graham says he is ready to send his Samaritan's Purse missionaries
into Iraq to provide assistance. Muslims and mainstream Christians are
wary that Graham wants to exchange food, water, and medicine for the
baptism of Iraqis into his intolerant brand of Christianity. In the
last Gulf War, Graham could not get away with his
chicanery. The Desert Storm Commander, General Norman Schwarzkopf,
stopped dead in the tracks Graham's plan to send 30,000 Arabic
language Bibles to U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia. Today's Pentagon shows
no such compunction
to put a rein on Graham. It invited him to give a Good Friday sermon
at the Pentagon to the consternation of the Defense Department's
Muslim employees. To make matters worse, under Bush's "Faith Based
Initiative," Graham's Samaritan's Purse stands to receive U.S.
government funds for its proselytizing efforts in Iraq, something that
should be an affront to every American taxpayer.
Bush's self-proclaimed adherence to Christianity (during one of the
presidential debates he said Jesus Christ was his favorite
"philosopher") and his constant reference to a new international
structure bypassing the United Nations system and long-standing
international treaties are worrying the top leadership of the Roman
Catholic Church. Well-informed sources close to the Vatican report
that Pope John Paul II is growing increasingly concerned about Bush's
ultimate intentions. The Pope has had experience with Bush's death
fetish. Bush ignored the Pope's plea to spare the life of Karla Faye
Tucker. To show that he was similarly ignorant of the world's
mainstream religions, Bush also rejected an appeal to spare Tucker
from the World Council of Churches - an organization that represents
over 350-million of the world's Protestant and Orthodox Churches.
It did not matter
that Bush's own Methodist Church and his parents' Episcopal Church are
members of the World Council.
Bush's blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs, and
his constant references to "evil doers," in the eyes of many devout
Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in
the Book of Revelations - the anti-Christ. People close to the Pope
claim that amid these concerns, the Pontiff wishes he was younger and
in better health to confront the possibility that Bush may represent
the person prophesized in Revelations. John Paul II has always
believed the world was on the precipice of the final confrontation
between Good and Evil as foretold in the New Testament.
Before he became
Pope, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla said, "We are now standing in the face of
the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do
not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of
the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the
final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the
Gospel versus the anti-Gospel." The Pope, who grew up facing the evils
of Hitler and Stalin, knows evil when he sees it. Although we can all
endlessly argue over the Pope's effectiveness in curtailing abuses
within his Church, his accomplishments external to Catholicism are
According to journalists close to the Vatican, the Pope and his
closest advisers are also concerned that the ultimate acts of evil -
the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and
Pentagon - were known in advance by senior Bush administration
officials. By permitting the attacks to take their course, there is a
perception within the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy that a coup
d'etat was implemented, one that gave Bush and his leadership
near-dictatorial powers to carry out their agenda.
The Pope worked tirelessly to convince leaders of nations on the UN
Security Council to oppose Bush's war resolution on Iraq. Vatican
sources claim they had not seen the Pope more animated and determined
since he fell ill to Parkinson's Disease. In the end, the Pope did
convince the leaders of Mexico, Chile, Cameroon, and Guinea to oppose
the U.S. resolution. If one were to believe in the Book of
Revelations, as the Pope fervently does, he can seek solace in scoring
a symbolic victory against the Bush administration. Whether Bush
represents a dangerous right-wing ideologue who couples his political
fanaticism with a neo-Christian blood cult (as I believe) or he is
anti-Christ or heralds one, the Pope should know he has fought the
good battle and has gained the respect and admiration of many
non-Catholics around the world.
