The Luciferian News Hour

Friday, November 18


China on Wednesday reported its first three confirmed human cases of bird flu as the government raced to vaccinate billions of chickens, ducks and other poultry in a massive effort to stop the spread of the virus.

The Health Ministry confirmed the virus killed a poultry worker and possibly a 12-year-old girl in the central province of Hunan. The girl’s brother also became ill and recovered. The World Health Organization has been asked to study these cases and determine if all three people caught H5N1. Unknown is if these cases involved direct contact with sick poultry, or if the infection spread from human to human.

Unfortunately, the dead girl was cremated so the exact cause of her death is not going to be known. No tissue samples were taken.

Psychic Aaron C. Donahue notes that the transfer of H5N1 virus from human to human and then to a third human, which may have happened in Hunan, will mark the beginning of the human pandemic.


It will mean that the virus has mutated so that it has the ability to jump from human to human. This is not something health officials said might happen. They have been warning that it will happen. It was just not known when it would happen.


Donahue says if the mutation occurred this week, the world could be in the midst of a true pandemic by the end of the year. That a lot of people will be traveling over the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays will assure a global spread of this deadly virus.

Scientists in Hong Kong said H5N1 apparently causes a "storm" of immune system chemicals that overwhelms the patient.

The H5N1 virus caused proteins known as (Scyto-kines) in infected lung tissue -- evidence of a so-called cytokine storm, an immune system overreaction that can be fatal.

The study, published in the online medical journal Respiratory Research, suggests that if and when H5N1 becomes a pandemic, it will hit the young and healthy the hardest. That is because they have healthy immune systems.

The elderly and people with compromised immune systems might, ironically, have a better chance of surviving this killer disease.

The report also raises questions about how effective drugs will be in controlling such a pandemic, experts said.

Did you hear the news? Sauerkraut may cure bird flu! Scientists in Seoul (SOUL), Korea, believe this German cabbage formula contains bacteria that fights the disease.

Researchers fed 11 out of 13 chickens infected with avian flu with fermented cabbage - the chickens showed signs of recovery within a week.

It seems that the Koreans make a popular dish of fermented cabbage called Kim Chi that is considered a very healthy food. It is a lot like the German sauerkraut.

Since the story leaked, sales of canned sauerkraut have skyrocketed all over the world. You may be hard pressed to find it in your local grocery.




FEMA Is Broke


The other big story this week. . . FEMA has run out of money. Something like 8.5 billion dollars has been spent housing and helping all of the people left homeless by the Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma, the trilogy of severe storms that raked the Gulf Coast from Mexico to the southern tip of Florida.



World Conferences


Something interesting is happening around the world. It seems that leaders of nations everywhere were holding summits to talk about cooperation and peace as well as free trade agreements.


Was this the first step toward forming the one-world socialist government that Psychic Aaron C. Donahue foresees?


Maybe, but maybe not. Amidst it all there also is a move afoot by the Bush Administration to cement US National interests abroad for economic and political reasons. It seems that Mr. Bush is trying to press an outmoded democratic-capitalistic system on the rest of the world.


I am happy to say that he is not getting a very warm reception.


When Bush or his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice show up at these summits things go somewhat array.  


Here is what was happened this week:



Twenty-one members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum are meeting in South Korea, to discuss a variety of issues. Among them is an effort to work out a deadlock preceding a December meeting of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Hong Kong.


US President George W. Bush is actively participating.


The WTO has been struggling to work out problems in agricultural subsidies before improved world trade agreements can be reached.


The APEC has the global trade issue high on its plate. One official said they were working on a short and punchy statement urging all sides to make concessions.


“APEC will urge everyone, especially the major players, to give and take,” he said.

Powerful developing countries like Brazil and India argue that US and European farm subsidies depress global farm prices and prevent growers in the poor nations from competing. The developed countries say they are apprehensive of the impact of tariff cuts on their farm sectors. Thus there are strong barriers to opening of free trade pacts world wide.

The issue is so hot, an estimated 100,000 farmers, workers and students united to protest at the APEC summit.


Mr. Bush stopped off in Japan Wednesday on his way to the conference and did something foolish. He publicly held up Taiwan as a model for Asia to follow to become “a free and democratic society.” He urged China to follow Taiwan’s lead.

Remarks like that were sure to anger Beijing just before the big summit when Mr. Bush and other world leaders were being asked to consider compromises. Also Mr. Bush plans to include Beijing in his list of stops during the trip.

Fortunately, Chinese leadership chose to deflect the remarks. A Chinese official said Thursday his country hopes to improve ties with the United States during President Bush’s three-day visit.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed. China’s rulers are putting their best foot forward.



In Bangladesh, leaders of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan(BOO-TAN), Nepal, the Maldives and Sri Lanka were also meeting for a two-day summit to discuss economic and social advancement of their region.


The purpose of the meeting was to collectively seek ways to end conflicts and speed up economic development to cut poverty in a region that is home to almost a quarter of the people in the world.


A devastating earthquake in October has helped ancient foes India and Pakistan come to mutual accord and open borders to send aide to an estimated 800,000 homeless refugees in Kashmir.




Seven of Africa’s most powerful leaders representing Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Senegal, Ethiopia, Algeria and the African Union Commission gathered in Abuja (A-Bu-Jay) to talk about binding the continent in a United Africa.

Ghana President John (Koo-For) Kufuor said “the emerging reality is that the rest of the world is already constituted as political unions or economic blocs.”

Kufuor called for greater cooperation between all 53 countries in Africa as a way of competing in the world. “Some want to go only as far as the European Union, while for others it has to be nothing short of one central government,” he said.

The group talked about abolishing national borders, creating an economic and monetary union, and bringing a transformation of Africa in a new political structure to assure peace and security.



In Norway, representatives from Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and the European Union were gathered to talk about a mutual problem they share in global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions.


The Arctic’s atmosphere is warming twice as fast as elsewhere on Earth and experts are warning that the regions ice will be completely melted by the end of this century. This will endanger native animals and the traditional lifestyle of Inuits and Lapplanders.


There also is a threat of severe winters and even a new ice age in northern Europe caused by a slowing or stopping of the flow of warm water along the Gulf Stream through the North Atlantic.


The group noted that the Kyoto treaty, hammered out in Japan, was designed to trim the output of six greenhouse gases by an average of five percent between 2008 and 2012, compared with 1990 levels. The treaty is only being honored by the European and some Asian nations, but the big polluters, the United States, China and India are not cooperating.


The group is calling for more drastic measures and seeking world cooperation this time. “The Kyoto protocol “is not enough” one speaker lamented.




A US-backed summit in (Bak-rain) designed to promote political freedom and “economic change” in the Middle East broke up without agreement.


A draft declaration on democratic and economic principle was shelved after Egypt insisted on language changes.


US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice represented the United States at this summit. The White House had hoped the conference would showcase political progress in a part of the world long dominated by monarchies and single-party rule but that was not to be.


That Egypt threw up the roadblock was not expected. Egypt receives nearly $2 billion every year in US aid, second only to Israel.


The disappointing outcome at the conference followed last week’s rocky summit in Argentina when Bush got a cold shoulder from Latin American leaders, failed to win consensus on a free trading bloc for the Western Hemisphere and endured biting criticism from anti-US protesters and Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez (Sha-vez).


 Dr. Rice brokered a deal on Gaza border crossings in marathon talks with Israel and the Palestinians on Tuesday, scoring a rare breakthrough in Middle East diplomacy.

At least that is what the news report said. Actually, Rice is one of a long line of Secretaries of State , U.S. Presidents and other ambassadors who have gone to great lengths over the years to “broker deals” between Israel and the Palestinians. All have gone down in flames.

We find it strange that these two people, all from the same stock but separated mostly by religious belief systems and nothing else, have been at constant war with one another since Abraham allegedly started two families with different women.

This deal involved simply opening the Gaza-Egyptian border. It was quite basic, from all I can learn about it. Without access to Gaza, they said chances for peace following Israel’s withdrawal from the territory in September were slim. 

So maybe we can give Dr. Rice some kudos for something in that jumbled mess. We will see how long the agreement holds.



General Motors Dilemma


Will Mighty General Motors Go Bankrupt? Shares of the struggling automaker closed Wednesday at their lowest level in nearly two decades as investors reacted to a strike threat at the company’s largest auto parts supplier.

After having dropped more than 30 percent in the past month, shares of the world's largest automaker closed down 5.8 percent at 21.29 dollars, up from a low of 20.90 in afternoon trading.

It was the weakest close since the crash of October 1987, said Art Hogan, an analyst at Jefferies, who said some investors are concerned that GM could follow its subsidiary, Delphi, into bankruptcy.


Other Bad Business News


Dark Days are ahead for American newspapers. In fact the mighty Knight-Ridder Chain of papers has announced that it is up for sale. The Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun and San Jose Mercury News, all owned by the Tribune Co., including a flagship paper in Chicago, announced plans to cut jobs because of declining revenues.


The American public, now enjoying warp-speed news from Television and Internet, is no longer interested in spending time leafing through news print left at the door each day. That some major papers are reeling over scandals caused by reporters so anxious to nail that hot story they are not taking time to check their facts . . . or just making stories up . . . isn’t helping.


US papers are battling an explosion of online information, a news agenda powered by bloggers and 24-hour cable news. Doomsayers say changes in modern lifestyles means the days of spending an evening reading the newspaper are over. Young Americans just aren’t buying newspapers.


The latest figures released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations shows that 2.6 percent of Americans dropped their newspapers during the first six months of this year. That means 1.2 million people deserted their paper.


In my final years as a newspaper writer and editor I felt it coming. I knew even then I was riding the last days of a dying dinosaur.

In a related subject, a federal judge found Washington Post reporter Walter Pincus (Pin-kus) in contempt last week for failing to reveal government sources for stories he wrote about a criminal investation of nuclear scientist Wen Ho Lee.


U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer (Collier) said: “in order to avoid a repetition of the Judith Miller imbroglio (im-prog-leo)” Pincus must contact his sources and inform them of the court’s order in case they will agree to release him from his pledge of confidentiality.


As you recall, Miller, a former New York Times reporter, served 85 days in jail for contempt in the CIA leak investigation. She agreed to talk after former Vice Presidential aide Scooter Libby agreed to release her pledge. And we all know how that ended up.


The ruling is a continuation of an ongoing infringement by the courts to force journalists to reveal their confidential sources. That has been the backbone of journalism. If the courts win this fight, and at this point it looks as if they will, American journalism as we knew it will be dead.




Prisoner Torture


American torture of prisoners has been in the news again ever since the Washington Post revealed the CIA has been using torture against terrorist suspects.


It appears that the US Senate has given the Bush Administration discretionary power to treat terror suspects as it wishes. The Senate did this when they voted to revoke the prisoner’s right to appeal in civilian courts.


One legal analyst said it is the equivalent of the power the French kings once had to send their critics to the Bastille at will.


The Senate last week even added an amendment to the Defense Department budget bill that would deprive non-US citizens accused of terrorism the right to seek redress in civil courts, even if they are innocent of any crime.


“Do not give the terrorists, the enemy combatants, the people who blow up folks at weddings, who fly airplanes into the twin towers, the ability to sue our own troops all over the country for any and everything,” one legislator argued.


But isn’t that judging all Moslem people just for being Moslem? Are all Moslems terrorists? And if we arrest an innocent person and take a year or more out of their lives by throwing them in prison, do we offer no recourse?


Wasn’t the thing that made America great was the fact that everybody was considered equal? That we were a free nation? Apparently we are willing to sacrifice these freedoms to fight an enemy that is within us all. Who can define a terrorist? Are we not terrorists in the eyes of the Moslem people living in the Middle East today?


After all, we invaded Iraq on a trumped up charge that proved to be false. We did it to seize their oil. Ironically, the extremists there are making sure we don’t get our hands on that oil without one heck of a fight.



Anti-War Moves


The Iraq War is starting to make some Republican legislators very nervous because it is getting increasingly unpopular on the home front. There are clear signs at home of party rebellion against the Bush agenda to “stay the course” and continue the war “as long as it takes.”


While the GOP-controlled Senate rejected a Democratic call Tuesday for a timetable for withdrawing US troops from Iraq, the senators approved a war package urging Bush to outline his plan for the “successful completion of the mission.

The measure was approved 98-0. Also written in the bill are restrictions on techniques used to interrogate terrorism suspects, a ban on inhuman treatment of prisoners and a call for quarterly reports on the status of operations in Iraq.


Reviving The Patriot Act

House and Senate negotiators struck a tentative deal Wednesday on the expiring Patriot Act that would curb FBI subpoena power and require the Justice Department to more fully report its secret requests for information about ordinary people, according to officials involved in the talks.

Before the day was out, however, the agreement was already faltering. Democrats complained that the draft wouldn’t sufficiently curb the FBI’s power to probe the most private aspects of people’s lives.

The Patriot Act is set to expire at the end of the year and the Bush Administration is pressing to have it made a permanent law of the land.

While watered down slightly, the revised act still goes too far. It is a price we did not need to pay for safety from terrorism. The act needs to be scrapped, not used to turn America into a police state.

Watch the saga continue.



Tooth Vaccine

Portuguese scientists said they had developed an experimental vaccine against tooth decay which was successful in laboratory tests on rats and could pave the way for a version that works for humans.  They said a protein injected in the animals seemed to make them more resistant to tooth decay. They don’t know if it will work in humans and there is a lot of research to be done before they will know.


November Tornados


Tornadoes barreled across the Midwest and portions of the Southeast, knocking out electricity and damaging buildings in several states. The storms killed at least one person.

Meteorologists said a cold front moving east collided with warm, unstable air to produce severe thunderstorms and funnel clouds across Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee. Tornadoes also were spotted in Indiana and Illinois.


The storm struck Illinois just eight days after a deadly tornado struck southwestern Indiana.


The massive storm system, triggered by a large low pressure system and a winter cold front colliding with a warm air mass, stretched from Michigan south to the Gulf Coast. In the far north the swirling storm front brought heavy rain and snow across the north. Some areas got as much as a foot of wet snow.


Tornadoes swept across central Iowa on Saturday, ripping up farms, destroying homes in several towns and sending college football fans running from a stadium for shelter.

At least one person was killed in the storm, two others were hospitalized, and a gas leak forced authorities to evacuate part of Stratford, a town of about 746 residents 50 miles northwest of Des Moines.

"Half the town's gone," said Bob Smith, who has lived in Stratford for 12 years. He said he ran from his camper as the tornado touched down.



The Bad Seed


The New US Ambassador to the Holy See, Francis Rooney III, is urging the Vatican to promote the potential of biotech crops. Now who do you think paid him to do that? You don’t think Monsanto had anything to do with this do you?


Rooney is a successful Oklahoma businessman. He is the CEO of Rooney Holdings, an investment and holding company based in Naples, Florida and Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the majority owner of Manhattan Construction Company, a firm that built the Oklahoma State Capitol, the George Bush Presidential Library, the Cato Institute headquarters, the Prayer Tower and other structures at Oral Roberts University, and is building part of a new visitor center at the U.S. Capitol. The subsidiary to this company won an estimated $100 million in Pentagon contracts in 2003.  


This guy is now in the Vatican, with his mouth on the ear of Pope Benedict, trying to get the Pope to urge Catholics to endorse biotech crops because they are supposed to be good for the world.


Actually genetically altered seeds are not good for the world and especially the earth. They are mixing with the natural plants of the world and altering their structure. Many of them are hybrids, which means do not produce good seed for a second planting, thus forcing farmers to buy new seed each year.


Worst of all, these genetically changed seeds are destroying the pre-biotic chemistry of the Mother Earth. Psychic Aaron C. Donahue says science is just beginning to learn about pre-biotic chemistry of planets through its explorative missions to Mars.


It is from pre-biotic chemistry that life on Earth began. Each time the planet suffered a major natural disaster that caused life to go extinct in the past, it rebounded again because the planet, itself, possessed this wonderful chemistry that existed on molecular (molecular) levels.


But Donahue believes GMO tampering and world-wide pollution from overpopulation and careless stewardship is causing the Earth to die from the inside out. The next time we go extinct, the Earth will stay dead. It will be another hot dry spinning body of dust and rock in space.


Will the Nazi Pope listen to Rooney? You bet he will. He already has demonstrated that he is an Earth Criminal by calling on Catholic families to continue having lots of children and overpopulating an already crowded and dying planet. Why wouldn’t he let the angel in his head convince him the biotech crops are good for everybody?




The Feflon Mess


The growing number of reports and litigation concerning the dangers of chemicals used in making Teflon coatings on your kitchen cooking utensils has caused DuPont Corp, the makers of Teflon, to take action.


Thousands of people who have worked for DuPont or lived in the vicinity of the Mid-Ohio Valley plant are signing up for tests to learn if the chemical has harmed their health or made them vulnerable as an increased cancer risk.


DuPont is paying for the survey and testing as part of its settlement in a class-action lawsuit over the chemical, which has one of those long names that most people can’t begin to pronounce. It is known simply as CB.


Also secret documents were made public this week by the Environmental Working Group, a research and advocacy organization, that shows DuPont hid studies showing the risks of a Teflon-related chemical used to line candy wrappers, pizza boxes, microwave popcorn bags and hundreds of other food containers.


This chemical, Zonyl, can rub off the liner and get in the food. Once in our bodies, it breaks down into a type of acid known as PFOA, a chemical related to Teflon-coated cookware.


PFOA is considered a likely human carcinogen. It is still being studied by the Food and Drug Administration however.




Trusting In God

Michael Newdow, the atheist who continues his fight against the Pledge of Allegiance says he now will open a new front this week in his campaign to purge references to God from government.

He planned to file a lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Sacramento, Calif., challenging the national motto: "In God We Trust."

Newdow wants to remove the phrase from U.S. paper money and coins because he believes it represents a government endorsement of religion.

As Luciferians we do not agree with Newdow on this newest claim. We see the god within ourselves and believe the Masons, who drafted the framework of our government and coined that phrase, were Luciferians as well. What the phrase is saying, then, is that we trust in ourselves.

There is no need, then, to remove this phrase from our money and government buildings. Since Newdow claims total atheism, he does not believe in god, and consequently must not believe in himself. If this is his claim, then he is on his own.



Media Control

Whatever happened to the government crackdown on bare breasts and bad words?

The Federal Communications Commission levied a record $7.9 million in indecency-related fines last year, raising concerns that the Christian-controlled government regulators were going to destroy all freedom of expression in the arts.

It is no surprise that programming changes followed, among them the departure of shock-jock Howard Stern to the FCC-free world of satellite radio, taking millions of advertising dollars with him.

And there, perhaps, lies the rub. The lost money. Money is the true god of the human race and its power is greater than the Christian Jesus, believe me. Consequently, the FCC is balking at the rush toward fining any more stations that cross the line.

The Christians, however, are not giving up. The FCC has received more than 189,000 indecency complaints against radio and television programs through the end of September, even though it hasn't issued any fines.

The inaction is puzzling to FCC watchers, who expected enforcement activity to ratchet up under Kevin Martin, the new FCC chairman and an outspoken supporter of increasing indecency fines and holding broadcasters more accountable.

"It's high time they started doing something," says L. Brent Bozell, president of the Parents Television Council, a watchdog group that encourages members to use its Web site to send complaints to the FCC.

The group was one of several organizers of complaints about Janet Jackson's breast-baring appearance at the Super Bowl in 2004. That event was largely responsible for touching off a record 1.4 million indecency complaints the FCC received that year.

Now if you are bored by the dull mamby-pamby broadcasting in the United States, you have a name of someone to blame for it. L. Brent Bozell. Think of Bozo if you have trouble remembering the name.



Bad People Of Dover


Fundamentalist Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson used his 700 Club television show to admonish residents of Dover, Pennsylvania for voting their school board out of office last week. It seems the folks of Dover didn’t agree with the board’s decision to introduce the teaching of intelligent design in the school science classes.


Intelligent design, as we all know, is a sneaky way of saying creationism. It is not a scientific theory just an extension of a religious belief system. The Christians want it taught as an alternative to the theory of evolution. This has been a hotly debated issue in the United States for years.


Because voters in Dover did not agree with the decision of the school board Robertson had the gall to tell them they just voted God out of their community.


“I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God. You just rejected him from your city,” he said.


Eight families also sued the school district, claiming the policy violates the constitutional separation of church and state. A trial was held in Federal District Court just days before the election. No ruling has been issued.


If you remember, Robertson is the same guy that recently called for the assassination of Socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, an outspoken critic of President Bush. That comment backfired and Robertson later apologized.


Perhaps he should also apologize to those good citizens of Dover as well. His remarks were uncalled for. They were justified in opposing the introduction of disguised Christian theology in their schools. People all across America should be doing the same thing and putting an end to this new pressure by the right-wing Christian bullies in Washington who want to force Jesus worship on the nation.




Internet Control


A move by other world nations to shift control of the Internet from the United States to the United Nations has apparently concluded in an agreement to leave the control in the hands of the United States, at least for now.


According to a New York Times story, an “accord” was reached that all nations agreed to a document of principles concerning supervision of domain names and other technical resources, but the Commerce Department will continue to supervise the operations of the Internet through an agency known as Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN.


I think that may be good news for all of us Internet bloggers and website operators. It basically means that the status quo will remain unchanged.



Scary Stuff


President Bush feels betrayed by several of his most senior aides and advisors and has severely restricted access to the Oval Office, INSIGHT magazine claims.

The story says the president’s reclusive behavior in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush.

“The atmosphere in the Oval Office has become unbearable,” a source said. “Even the family is split.”

The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions.




In Austria, British historian David Irving was arrested last week on a warrant accusing him of denying the Holocaust. Irving is being held in a prison in Graz.


It is a crime in Austria to deny that the Jews were persecuted by the Nazis during World War II. Irving has written nearly 30 books and given speeches on the subject. He has been accused of spreading anti-Semitic and racist ideas. His book “Hitler’s War” challenges the extent of the Holocaust.


If convicted, Irving could face up to 20 years in prison.
