Continued from Prelude To: Did We Do This?

Today I received an e-newsletter from Chuck Baldwin.  It fits in with what I wanted to blog about, so to start out, I will post his column, in its entirety (as he requests).  My comments will follow.

What’s Really Going On In Haiti?

People of goodwill everywhere are rightly sympathetic to the plight of
hundreds of thousands of innocent Haitians in the aftermath of the terrible earthquake that rocked the island country. Private donations and volunteer efforts are pouring into Haiti from all over the globe–especially from the United States. This is a good thing, right? So, why am I troubled?

Simply put, I cannot remember such an all-out “relief effort” by our
nation’s military and government forces following a natural disaster
anywhere–ever! Not even New Orleans, Louisiana, and surrounding Gulf Coast communities here in the homeland received the kind of attention from Washington, D.C., that Haiti is receiving.

According to Agence France-Press (AFP), “The US military is ramping up its mission in quake-hit Haiti, with 20,000 US troops expected to operate on ground and offshore by Sunday [January 24], the US commander overseeing the region said.”

No doubt, this would include ships and personnel from the USS Carl Vinson carrier group. Cost to US taxpayers to send an entire carrier group–along with more than 20,000 (so far) military personnel–to Haiti already numbers in the multiplied millions of dollars. It is also almost certain that there will be no quick exit from the island nation. There never is. In other words, our military presence (dare I say occupation?) in Haiti will doubtless last for years. At least, that’s the way Latin American and European countries see it. And they are probably right.

Suffice it to say that the United States military is now completely in
charge in Haiti. At this point, it would be very enlightening for everyone to read Walter Williams’ column dated January 20, 2010, entitled “Haiti’s Avoidable Death Toll.” See Walter’s column at:

http://tinyurl.com/haiti-avoidable-death

In short, Williams notes that the high death toll in Haiti is directly
related to the inferior political/economic philosophies of the Haitian
government. There is no economic liberty, which has relegated it to being one of the world’s poorest nations, with no opportunity to build the kind of homes and businesses that can withstand natural disasters.

Williams is right when he says, “President Barack Obama called the quake ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.’ He would be closer to the truth if he had said that the Haitian political and economic climate that make Haitians helpless in the face of natural disasters are ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.'”

Williams also observes, “Corruption is rampant” in Haiti. Crime is,
likewise, ubiquitous in Haiti, with little real law enforcement. Private
property rights are nonexistent. Like many (if not most) third world
countries, people live in tyranny and bondage to insensitive, power-mad
strongmen who use up the country’s resources for their own selfish purposes. Tyranny always impoverishes people; freedom enriches them.

Williams rightly concludes, “Haiti’s disaster demands immediate Western
assistance but it’s only the Haitian people who can relieve themselves of
the deeper tragedy of self-inflicted poverty.” Amen.

All of that said, however, there are still several things bugging me about
the Haiti story.

For one thing, why was an earthquake of this magnitude not felt beyond
Port-au-Prince? (The only reports saying tremors were felt out of Haiti
belong to US-controlled sources.)  All of the testimonies that I have read from people living in the adjoining country of the Dominican Republic (which shares the same island with Haiti) that were quoted by French, British, or Spanish outlets universally say they felt nothing. If the foreign press is reporting the story accurately, the devastation was almost exclusively contained in and around Port-au-Prince. That is very strange to me. Even most of the roads reportedly remained open after the quake.

Another oddity is the fact that this earthquake did not produce a tsunami. It is being called “miraculous” that an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale did not produce a colossal tsunami, which would have affected everyone in the region.

Furthermore, does the French government know something that we don’t–but should? According to a report of the Global Analysis International Intelligence (GAII), “Not coincidentally, Agence France-Press (AFP), which of course is closely affiliated with French intelligence, filed a report on 14th January which contained the following concluding sentence:

“‘On Wednesday, Obama ordered a “swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives” in Haiti following the murderous quake, as a massive US aid mission swung into action, using troops, naval forces, aircraft and rescue teams.’

“FACT: An ‘act of God,’ or natural calamity, is NOT a ‘murderous quake.’ “The use of the word MURDEROUS here implies that someone is doing the
MURDERING.”

GAII further speculates that the earthquake may have been the work of US Black Ops, which “flattened the French embassy and many of its officials, imploded the United Nations’ own establishments in the Haitian capital, and no doubt obliterated evidence of US Government and rogue official drug-running complicity . . . channeled through the Haitian capital for many years.” See the intelligence report at:

http://tinyurl.com/gaii-haiti

Intelligence reports are also circulating about the possible disruption of
liens and seizures of trillions of dollars by the international community
relative to past crimes committed by former Presidents George Bush I and II, and Bill Clinton, which were being channeled through Haiti’s Central Bank.

If any of this is even remotely true, it is certainly more than convenient
that the Haitian capital was destroyed.

This particular part of the story is a real sore spot with me. And I know if I broach this topic, many readers (especially my Christian brethren who live under the delusion that the Bush family can do no wrong) will refuse to believe anything I report and will even take their anger and umbrage out on me. So be it.

I am personally convinced that certain members of the Bush and Clinton
families have been involved in the international smuggling of illicit drugs
for decades. I have spoken in confidence with those who were in positions to know, and they have emphatically told me that both then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and then-President George H.W. Bush were complicit in CIA-assisted drug running out of Mena, Arkansas. (You don’t think I would say this if I did not have absolute confidence in the integrity and credibility of these sources, do you? Plus, why would they tell me this at potential great harm to themselves, if it were not true? And, no, I cannot divulge their names, for obvious reasons.) And there is absolutely no reason to believe that similar operations are not ongoing. In my opinion, it would be utterly naïve to think otherwise.

After all, it has been often reported that the CIA used Army Special Forces troops to facilitate the smuggling of drugs out of Indochina during the Vietnam War, has it not? Yes, it has. That rogue elements within the US government would use war–or even earthquakes–as cover and facilitation for illegal drug smuggling or money laundering would not surprise me one bit.

I realize it is extremely difficult for many Americans to contemplate that
members of their own federal government could be evil enough to be involved in anything such as is implied above. According to the thinking of many Americans, evil people only live in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, or North Korea. And, of course, that is exactly what government propagandists want us to believe.

The truth is, no country or people has a monopoly on sin. As the prophet
Jeremiah was inspired to say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) The Apostle Paul agreed. He told the Philippians, “We . . . have no confidence in the flesh.” (Philippians 3:3)

Thomas Jefferson said virtually the same thing when he said, “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

This is why Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders insisted that we
should be diligent to hold our civil magistrates accountable to the limits
and protections of the US Constitution. They well understood the sentiments so wisely expressed by Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Christians, of all people, should understand this.

So, why are so many of us so quick to believe everything our government and their toadies in the national media are telling us? Are we so naïve as to believe that unregenerate politicians in Washington, D.C., are incapable of the same evil acts of barbarity and savagery that might be found in other parts of the world? Are sinners less sinful because they happened to receive their fallen nature from American bloodlines?

Am I saying that Black Ops personnel manufactured the earthquake in
Haiti–and killed tens of thousands of people in the process–for the
purpose of hiding or facilitating illegal activity? No, I am not. How in the
world would I know it, even if it were true?

What I am saying is that, once again, for me, there are many things that do not add up regarding what is going on in Haiti. The way the earthquake behaved; the lack of related seismic and tsunamic activity usually associated with earthquakes of this magnitude; the unprecedented involvement of US military forces being used for “relief efforts” even as commanders are desperate to fill combat theaters in Iraq and Afghanistan; the occupation of another independent nation, which occurred at lightning speed; the vast sums of US taxpayer dollars being expended; the devastation done to key Haitian governmental and banking institutions–which were known to be conduits for
international financial disbursements–with virtually no devastation
experienced anywhere else; and intelligence reports of surreptitious
activity circulating all over Europe and Latin America all add up to one big question, What’s really going on in Haiti?

My opinions on Chuck Baldwin’s column:

  • I don’t think that the use of the word ‘murderous’ to describe the earthquake, in and of itself, implies anything.  It could simply be a way of attributing blame for the deaths to God, ‘Mother Nature’, or the earthquake itself.
  • I was not aware  that the damage was confined to such a small area, and that the quake was not felt throughout the island.  To me, that seems very suspicious indeed.
  • Just yesterday I had read elsewhere, that the day before the quake, the Department of Defense had held simulations pertaining to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti, in order to rehearse relief operations.

  • Also, yesterday, I heard, for the first time, the allegation that the CIA was involved in drug dealing.

http://libertynewsradio.com/wire/news/2010/01/00414_Ron_Paul_After_CIA_coup_agency_runs_military_025532.php

  • ‘Rogue Elements’?  I’ll go a step further and say that our government authorizes and funds these ‘rogue elements’, but makes every effort to cover their connection to them.  How many years have we been  hearing about US involvement in assassinations, regime change, etc.?  Come on–if these were just ‘rogue elements’, don’t you think there would be an investigation, arrests, and a front page story?
  • I knew that the Bushes were involved in many despicable things, including eugenics, Holocaust concentration camps, Saudi Arabia, etc.  Information on some of that can be found in the book “Confessions Of An Economic Hitman”.  (This book was a real ‘eye-opener’ for me!)  Here is a link to a video interview with the author:

As far as Clinton, I haven’t learned much about him but, years ago, I formed the opinion that it was his goal to disarm the US and bring us under the authority of the United Nations–and then run for president of the UN! (His efforts were tame compared to what Obama has done!)

  • Steven Collins had recently posted a blog about Obama’s Executive Order regarding Interpol (International Police, I believe).  He links to an article that asserts that Interpol is doing an in-depth audit of the Federal Reserve Bank, and investigating it and other criminal organizations.

Remember also, that nearly a year ago, there were reports of a Spanish judge wanting Bush, et al. investigated in regards to breaking international law by torturing prisoners at Guantánamo Bay.  And, it was discovered, late last summer, that Goldman Sachs had been using market manipulating software.  Although virtually no American media covered the story, there was an international outcry over the discovery.  The Senate was planning to investigate, but the story died.  I don’t know if it was ever resolved.  If it wasn’t  (and it doesn’t look like it was) there could be call for an investigation by an organization independent of the (apparently) widespread corruption throughout the US government and regulatory agencies.  In other words, these things would tend to corroborate the idea that there may be an international investigation underway, into the Bush family and other influential people.  One other note–although Obama is giving the impression of not being involved in such an investigation, I suspect he would be at the front of the pack of the accusers.

  • I heard also, that Hugo Chavez (I think it was him), is alleging that we are using the Haiti earthquake as an excuse for military occupation of Haiti and eventually the invasion of Venezuela.  (It has just been reported that Venezuelan oil deposits may be more than double the amount of oil in Saudi Arabia.)

http://www.topnews.in/venezuela-holds-vast-crude-reservoirs-usgc-2252378

While he is certainly villified in the conservative media, it doesn’t necessarily follow that nothing Chavez says is true.  I am not one of his supporters, and know nothing about him, but who knows?  One day we may find out that Chavez told more truth than either our politicians or our news media!

  • Also, with the amount of enmity that Venezuela and Cuba have towards the US, and in view of their increase in militarization, it would make sense, strategically, for the US to move into the region.  I am not saying I agree!  I am just saying decision makers could feel justified in occupying Haiti, for that reason.  Frankly, I don’t know where the money is coming from to continue expanding our ‘presence’–especially when things are falling apart at home!

America is not just a nation–it is an empire.  We are feared and hated throughout the world–for that reason.  I go into the subject a little more in my post:  American Empire

Here is a map that speaks volumes:

US military bases worldwide in 2007

US military bases worldwide in 2007

Another important thing I want to point out, is that the American empire extends to the south and to the east.  That correlates with a prophecy in Daniel, relating to a 4th kingdom/world empire that will rule in the latter days.  This is the same empire spoken of as The Beast (the ‘first beast’) in the book of Revelation.

My gut feeling is that the US may either be the last world empire, or may be transforming into it.  I still have a lot more study to do before I could put forth a reasonable argument for it though.  I know it would be denied by almost all of our current ‘Bible experts’–the same ones that will tell you that The Church is going to be ‘raptured’ before the Tribulation begins.  I know, without a doubt, that isn’t true.

I still need to do a post on that subject, but I’ll spare you the suspense–based on my current understanding, I believe that the only people that might possibly be removed from the earth before death, prior to Christ’s return, are ‘The 144,000’ and maybe ‘The Two Witnesses’.  The rest of us will rise to meet Him in the air when He returns.

Back to the column . . . if I understand correctly, people suspect that the US may have bombed certain buildings in Haiti, thus producing an earthquake.  What is it investigators look for–motive, means & opportunity? (I think those are the three.)

  • Motive: In his column, Chuck lays out a very plausible motive for doing such a thing–if it is true.  (I’m just an ‘average joe’ who has no inside information, so I can’t say if it is or not.)
  • Means: If it was bombs, we certainly have the means to do that.  There is also another possible means by which we could have caused an earthquake.  That will be the subject of the continuation of this post.  (Link below)
  • Opportunity: I don’t think we can rule that out.  We already know that over 100 Americans died in the quake.  (I am not implying that any of them were the people responsible–if anyone was responsible).

So, to wrap up this post . . . it certainly looks like certain powerful people, with ties to our government, may have a motive for creating an earthquake in Haiti (and yes, it is possible to do that), in order to cover past acts of corruption.  If this is true–may God bring the whole thing out into the open, and may these people get the earthly judgment they deserve!

Be sure to check out part 2 of this post, detailing a likely weapon of massive mass destruction.  Many believe these weapons (several in the world) are capable of producing earthquakes, as well as some of the other devastating events prophesied for the latter days–ones you may have assumed would be natural events!
