Luciferian News Hour


November 11, 2005


There has been a shift of thinking all over the world in the last week or two. Have you felt it? The arch angels have been blocked by the Magickians from influencing governments and interesting things are starting to happen.


Not only are the right-wing fundamental Christian Republicans in the Bush Cabinet reeling over the Valerie Plame mess, but now a new investigation, this time over a leak of CIA information to The Washington Post involving torture of Islamic prisoners.


It seems this story revealed top secret locations of CIA “black sites” in Eastern Europe are considered damaging to our national security. Thus the release of the information also was a criminal act.



Bush Vs. Chavez Over FTAA


President George W. Bush and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez clashed last weekend in Argentina over a US plan to open the borders of the Americas to free trade.


Actually, they didn’t clash. Bush and Chavez didn’t even meet. They were just in the same town and being active over the same issue.


While Bush was indoors, meeting with leaders of 34 nations from the Americas, attempting to sell them on a plan to open a free-trade route from Chile to Canada, Chavez was delivering a speech about a block or two away to about 40,000 people gathered in a football stadium.


Chavez, an outspoken socialist, stood strongly opposed to the US plan. He called it an expansion of U.S. capitalism throughout the Americas.


“I think we came here to bury FTAA. I brought my shovel,” he said.


 “The planet is being destroyed under our own noses by the capitalist model, the destructive engine of development,” Chavez said. “Every day there is more hunger, more misery, thanks to the neo-liberal, capitalist model.”


During a radio broadcast from Venezuela preceding the summit, Chavez described the pact as an imperialist, colonialist and hegemonic scheme of the United States. He stressed the importance of the unity of Latin American workers in a struggle for building a “one single great nation” across the region.


Instead of a spread of American-style capitalism, Chavez called for ALBA, the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, a socialistic plan which he said is already alive and functioning.


After Chavez spoke, 100,000 people marched in what was supposed to be a peaceful, anti-American demonstration. The demonstration became unruly, however, with protesters throwing stones through store windows. Police used tear-gas canisters to disperse the crowd. There were some 68 arrests.


Chavez may not have been the only factor involved, but Bush came home from the talks empty handed. The other leaders said they want to wait to see what happens at a world trade meeting next month in Hong Kong.





There was a lot of unrest throughout the world last week. People were rioting in the streets. Could the departure of the angels have something to do with it?




France declared a state of emergency Tuesday after 12 nights of extreme violence in one of the worst cases of rioting, looting and burning of cars and buildings in decades. The rioting, believed to have been triggered by ethnic anger over discrimination and unemployment, broke out among African and Moslem youth in the more impoverished neighborhoods and spread to an estimated 300 cities. It spread faster than a malignant cancer.


But France was not alone.




Youths set fire to 15 vehicles across Belgium in four nights of attacks that authorities said looked like imitations of violence in France, leading to the far right to call for expulsion of the perpetrators




More than 1,000 demonstrators angry about President Bush's policies clashed with police, shattered storefronts and torched businesses Friday, marring the inauguration of the Summit of the Americas as leaders began debating creation of one of the world's largest free trade zones.




The clashes at the Summit of the Americas in Argentina spread to the streets of Montreal Friday. Montreal police said more than 150 people participated in an anti-globalization protest that turned violent.




Police shot in the air to disperse protesters in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa last week after four days of clashes between police and anti-government protesters. At least 42 people died in the country’s worse violence in months.



 War On Terror


Al-Qaida claimed responsibility Thursday for three suicide bomb attacks on Western hotels in Ammon, Jordan, that killed at least 56 people, linking the deadly blasts to the war in Iraq and calling Jordan the "backyard garden" for U.S. operations.



The Washington Chaos


President Bush’s job approval has fallen to the lowest level of his presidency. People are concerned about the way the Iraq war is going, a fumbled Supreme Court nomination, and the indictment of a top White House aide and the possibility of other indictments.


When polled, 42 percent now say they strongly disapprove of how Bush is handling his job, twice as many as the 20 percent who said they strongly approve.


Overall, the Bush approval rating was at 37 percent compared with 39 percent a month ago. About 59 percent of those surveyed disapproved.




Voter Impact


Gubernatorial elections across America on Tuesday reflected the public’s uneasiness about events going on under the Bush Administration.


Democrats cleaned up big in off-year elections from New Jersey to California, sinking the candidate who embraced President Bush in the final days of the Virginia governor's campaign. They also turned back all four of GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's efforts to reshape state government.


Weakening The Patriot Act

Congress is moving to curb some of the police powers it gave the Bush administration after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, including imposing new restrictions on the FBI's access to private phone and financial records.

A budding House-Senate deal on the expiring USA Patriot Act includes new limits on federal law enforcement powers and rejects the Bush administration's request to grant the FBI authority to get administrative subpoenas for wiretaps and other covert devices without a judge's approval.

Even with the changes, however, every part of the law set to expire Dec. 31 would be reauthorized and most of those provisions would become permanent.



UN Vote Against Cuba Embargo


Almost every country in the United Nations General Assembly urged the U.S. Tuesday to end its four-decade-old embargo against Cuba.


The vote was approved 182 to 4, with one abstention.


The resolution demanded that the U.S. lift its trade, financial and travel embargo and stop penalizing foreign firms that deal with the island nation.


The United States has maintained this embargo against Cuba ever since the Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961. The UN vote is not expected to have any impact on the Bush Administration, at least for now.



Job Market Improving?


The Labor Department issued its October report last week showing only 8,000 job losses compared to 35,000 in September in the midst of the ruins of the three hurricanes.


This suggested that the damage to the job market from Katrina wasn’t as bad as many had feared. The unemployment rate dropped from 5.1 percent in September to 5 percent in October.


The current figures are based on a census count of 295,734,134, which means 14.7 million people are currently counted as out of work in America. We must wonder how many people have dropped off of the unemployment rolls and are not being counted. And of those who are working, how many are earning enough to cover the cost of their basic needs, like housing, food, clothing and heat?


Just a thought.




The Walmart Effect


Walmart received some kudos from economists this week. In an effort to make this evil retail giant sound favorable a study by Global Insight, an economic research firm, said the company’s rock-bottom pricing strategy forced competitive stores to keep prices low and consequently helped keep a lid on inflation.


Are you fooled? Do you believe it?


Walmart also was credited with having a positive impact on US employment because it generated 210,000 jobs by 2004. Of course these are all ultra low-paying jobs that don’t begin to cover the cost of living for workers. The study noted this, but said it was offset by falling consumer prices.


Fooled yet? If you believe it, go to work at Walmart. You might like it there.



The China Textile Deal

The United States and China reached a three-year agreement on Tuesday to rein in China's booming clothing and textile shipments to the United States, solving an issue that had threatened to cool ties.

The deal covers over 30 clothing categories including socks, T-shirts and bras, all the stuff you buy at Walmart.

Under the agreement, China will reduce its expanded exports of textiles to the United States to a 10 percent increase over last year, and sell the massive stockpile of wares already sitting in warehouses in the US. After three years, the limits are off.

China’s textiles are produced by low cost labor so US companies cannot compete.



By Ralph Nader:

"Meet the "China Price" or else." Remember that phrase -- "meet the China Price," because you'll be reading much more about what it means to this country, its working families and its communities.

U.S. chartered corporations are telling their suppliers that if they do not meet the "China Price", they can either lose business, cut their employees' wages and benefits further, or close down and open up their production facilities in China.

 WalMart is a gigantic pressure cooker in the "meet the China Price" rat race or else. With a relentlessness comparable to its low-wage, union-busting practices, WalMart tells its suppliers to find ways to meet the "China Price" or pick up and move to China with its hardworking, non-union, 30 or 40 cents per hour workers.



US Buying Power


For all its strength, the current economic expansion in the US is not boosting the American worker's paycheck.

Wages have been rising nominally: Average pay rose 8 cents last month to $16.27 an hour, according to a government report Friday. That's not fast enough to counter inflation.

By one common measure, average pay for an hour's work has less purchasing power than it had four years ago



Washington Post Profit Slumps


The Washington Post reported a 19 percent drop in profits during its third quarter because of hurricane related costs and lost revenues. Another newspaper going down the tubes.




Destroying Alaska’s Refuge


The U.S. Senate narrowly rejected a attempt by Senator Maria Cantwell to stop a plan to open the Alaska Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to wildcat oil well drilling. Her bill lost 51 to 48.


The Senate is now in line to approve a budget bill that includes a provision that allows the drilling. The House, which has been more supportive of drilling in the tundra regions, is expected to debate its own bill on this issue next week.


But Wait: Something Positive Happened In The House this week:



House GOP Leaders Shift On Alaskan Drilling

A solid number of Republican moderates drove House GOP leaders to drop a hotly contested plan to open an Alaskan wilderness area to oil drilling as a sweeping budget bill headed toward a vote Thursday. A plan to allow states to lift a moratorium on oil drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts was also axed.

(Could It Be That Somebody Is Listening?)


Loss of Rain Forests Shifting Rainfall Patterns


A new study led by researchers at Duke University and using a NASA computer model shows that rainfall in parts of the United States will be reduced significantly by deforestation in other parts of the world.


The study shows that Deforestation in the Amazon regions of South America will reduce rainfall in Texas by 25 percent from March to September.


Deforestation in Central Africa would affect precipitation in the U.S. Midwest


And Deforestation in Southeast Asia will alter rainfall in China and the Balkans.


The researchers said the loss of the trees will only change the rainfall patterns. The rain will still fall, but it will come down in other places, possibly where it isn’t needed or wanted.



Impact of Climate Change On Nature


A study published in the Royal Society’s journal Proceedings B notes that the rapid pace of climate change and pressures on habitat are occurring too fast for animals and plants to adapt. While the behavior of plants and animals is changing, the changes are threatening their survival, the study finds. Birds are migrating at different times, flowers and larvae are emerging earlier and fish and insects are moving into new ranges. All of this is upsetting a fine balance of nature that has kept things running smoothly for millions of years.



Runaway Energy Crisis

The world must change its energy habits or struggle with choking fumes, runaway oil demand and a growing dependence on the volatile Middle East for fuel, the International Energy Agency said on Monday.

Energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions will soar by more than 50 percent by 2030 if consumers keep burning oil unchecked.

 To keep pace with booming demand over the next 25 years, top producer Saudi Arabia and its neighbors would have to spend an annual $56 billion on rigs and refineries or oil prices will race higher, the study said.

What the agency did not mention is that Saudi Arabia and its neighbors are currently pumping at peak production. There is no more oil to be drawn from that field, which is among the largest on Earth. If we keep pumping at this capacity, the world will soon be running out of oil.



Super Iceberg Calved Again

In Antarctica an iceberg about the size of the Hawaiian island of Maui has split into three pieces, scientists said Friday.

The fresh splits mark the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth times that a portion of that giant iceburg has broken off, or calved, since the first calving event on May 30, 2000.

That massive piece of ice has been careening around the Ross sea for months, slamming into the coast and breaking off chunks of protruding ice features as big as cities.



Prince Charles urges people to protect the earth


Prince Charles called on people to be "stewards of creation" during a speech on the environment in San Francisco.

"We simply can't go on as we are now," Charles told a supportive crowd at the San Francisco Ferry Building.

"We have to find the courage to reassert the once commonplace belief that human beings have a duty to act as the stewards of creation."



Attack Of Vampire Bats


In Brazil, Bites from rabid vampire bats are blamed for 23 deaths in over the past two months, newspaper reports say. Scientists say the encounters with the bats are growing in number because of the continued destruction of the rain forests where these bats make their home. The bats are consequently being lured toward cattle ranches and farms where they find food. And food for vampire bats is….of course….our blood.





The deadly tornado that obliterated homes across a swath of southwestern Indiana was unusually intense and fast, packing winds that topped 200 mph as it roared through the night at up to 75 mph, meteorologists said Monday.

The storm's strength, its 41-mile path of destruction and the fact that it struck in the middle of the night in November are all unusual, said Dan McCarthy, warning coordinator at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.

Sunday's twister, which killed 22 people, was at its peak a strong F3, with winds that reached or exceeded 200 mph, according to National Weather Service estimates.

That makes it the strongest November tornado since an F4 twister with winds of 207 mph to 260 mph killed two people in Van Wert, Ohio, on Nov. 10, 2002,





Vietnam and China have reported new outbreaks of the deadly H5N1 strain of avian flu. In Japan, the authorities are to cull 180,000 chickens after discovering the first case of bird flu there in over a year.

In China, authorities ordered all live poultry markets in China's capital to close immediately and went door-to-door seizing chickens and ducks from private homes, as the government dramatically beefed up its fight against bird flu on Monday.


Beijing also announced that 6 million birds had been slaughtered around the site of China's most recent bird flu outbreak, and the World Health Organization said it had been asked to help in the reopened investigation of the country's possible first human cases of the virus.


The escalation of anti-bird flu measures in the world's most populous country came as a meeting of hundreds of international experts in Geneva opened with warnings that a global human flu pandemic is inevitable and could cost the global economy at least $800 billion.


"It is only a matter of time before an avian flu virus ... acquires the ability to be transmitted from human to human, sparking the outbreak of human pandemic influenza," WHO director general Lee Jong- wook told the gathering.



9-11 Firefighters Lungs


Firefighters at the scene during the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers at 9-11 are now showing “accelerated pulmonary function decline,” a medical report reveals.


Dr. David Pezant of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and deputy chief medical officer of the New York City Department of Firefighters was the lead author of the report involving 12,079 firefighters who worked at the site before, during and after the event. The report also compared these firefighters with other firefighters who were not exposed.


The report states that lung function dropped most for firefighters present during the collapse, followed by those who arrived over the next 48 hours. Decline in lung function was about 50 percent greater in those with late exposure compared to those not exposed, Pezant said.


The dust and smoke from the collapsing buildings was laden with toxic materials including asbestos used in the construction of the buildings. The dust filled the city so not only firefighters, but people living and working nearby also were exposed.




Angels Fighting Back


There are clear signs that the spiritual wars still rage. The angels are fighting back. Consider the following:



Kansas Votes To Teach Evolution


Revisiting a topic that exposed Kansas to nationwide ridicule six years ago, the state Board of Education approved science standards for public schools Tuesday that cast doubt on the theory of evolution.

The board's 6-4 vote, expected for months, was a victory for intelligent design advocates who helped draft the standards. Intelligent design holds that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power.

Critics of the proposed language charged that it was an attempt to inject creationism into public schools in violation of the separation between church and state.




Misdirection Of Bill Gates


Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, has pledged $258.3 million for the development of new drugs to fight and hopefully wipe out malaria. If this man understood the real dangers in the world, he would be joining the Luciferian movement and doing everything possible to save the planet.


With the kind of money Gates has at his disposal, think of how much land he could buy, how many trees could be planted, and how much concrete could be torn up. Instead of attacking the lowly malaria mosquito Gates should be concentrating his efforts on new non-fossil fuel energy sources to run our factories and run our automobiles.


The man has no excuse for his foolishness. He was allowed to gain his wealth for a reason. That money was earmarked for the Earth. Gates violated this trust. I will have more about this soon on my website. Watch for it.




Saddam Hussein Trial


Gunmen opened fire on a car carrying two lawyers defending some of Saddam Hussein's co-defendants in a trial for crimes against humanity, killing one and wounding the other, police and defense team sources said.

Tuesday's attack followed the murder of another defense lawyer in the team, Saadoun al-Janabi, who was shot the day after the trial started in Baghdad last month.


The killings prompted Hussein’s lawyers to protest holding the trial in Baghdad without adequate protection for the defendants and their lawyers.




Supreme Court Drug Case


The U.S. Supreme Court is considering a decision that involves allowing a small congregation in a Brazil-based church in New Mexico use a hallucinogenic tea during worship services. It will be the first religious-freedom case to come before Chief Justice John Roberts.


The Bush Administration contends that the tea is not only illegal under federal law, but potentially dangerous. But the court ruled 15 years ago to allow the sacramental use of peyote by Navajo and certain other tribes.


About 130 members of the church have been battling a decision by federal agents to seize their tea in 1999. 


The angelic forces do not want us to use these so-called “hallucinogenic” drugs because they give us brief visions of reality with our third eye open. Scientists recently found that Peyote is not harmful to the human body and that marijuana, another banned and natural plant, actually benefits users and improves brain function.




US Fence On Mexican Border


Republicans legislators have introduced a bill to build a 2,000 mile-long wall along the US-Mexican border to keep illegal immigrants out. The bill would create a border security fence from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, Homeland Security announced that 1,000 new border guards will be recruited to help police the borders. Just think, we could have our own concrete wall . . . just like the one Ronald Reagan ordered Russia’s Gorbechov to “tear down.” That seems like a conflict of interest.


If you remember, Psychic Aaron C. Donahue last year proposed having Mexico and the United States join forces as a single country so we can use all the troops now used to guard our borders for collectively defending our shores.


The Washington Times said Republican legislators also are considering a bill ending birthright citizenship, a right granted under the U. S. Constitution. “There is a general agreement that citizenship in the country should not be bestowed on people who are the children of folks who come into this country illegally,” said Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado.


Seems to me if they do that they need to get all 50 states to ratify the constitutional change. And if they pull it off, we could be creating a situation where babies born to non-citizens in the United States could grow up to be lost in the ether. Children without citizenship anywhere.





An overloaded ferry capsized in the Arabian Sea off southern Pakistan, killing an estimated 60 people last week. About 80 people were packed on the small craft when it capsized. Ironically, they were heading to a remote coastal town to mourn the death of three people who died earlier in the week in a boat accident.



Military Movement In Far East


The United States has been reorganizing its military presence in the Western Pacific, which has an ominous ring. The commander of US naval forces in the Pacific declined to say how many of the 7,000 marines to leave Okinawa would be moved to the US territory of Guam. Last week the United States and Japan announced US forces in Okinawa would be reduced by up to 11,000 within six years as part of a reorganization. “You’re going to see increased military presence throughout the region,” the admiral said. “I’m working specifically on increasing the number of ships.” Those are war ships, by the way.




Pirates At Sea


When you board a luxury liner these days for a cruise at sea the last thing you might expect is to have the ship boarded by pirates. But that was what almost happened to the Seabourn Spirit, a 10,000 ton cruise ship carrying an estimated 600 passengers and a 151-member crew last week off the east African coast.


Pirates in two small open boats approached the ship about 100 miles off the coast of Somalia and fired machine guns and a rocket-propelled grenade in an effort to stop and board the vessel.


The crew knew what to do. Apparently Carnival Corp., owners of the cruise line, trains its workers on how to respond and avoid being boarded by pirates. Pirating must be getting popular again. The ship attempted to ram the small boats, picked up speed and simply outran them.


One crew member was slightly injured by flying debris. The ship was bound for Mombasa, Kenya, at the end of a 16-day voyage from Alexandria, Egypt.




NASA Sets Priorities


NASA has adopted a “go-as-you-can-pay” approach to new space programs, Administrator Michael D. Griffin said. “NASA cannot afford to do everything on its plate today,” he told the House Science Committee. For now, the top priorities are a replacement for the space shuttle and completion of the International Space Station. What about the Bush call to travel to the Moon and Mars? Everything is on hold until the money is appropriated. It looks like China will be on the Moon before we get back there.



Vermont Secession?


A group of about 400 people packed the Montpelier House Chamber in the Vermont statehouse last week to approve a resolution calling on Vermont legislators to secede from the United States. The meeting was called an independence convention, the first of its kind in the US since 1861 when South Carolina voted to leave the Union. The group charges that the nation is being run by a neo-con band of criminals who are trampling on civil rights at home and invading countries at will overseas. If they are serious, we won’t be hearing the last of that.



Buying Votes


Here is a novel idea.


A wealthy candidate for the presidency in Sri Lanka has offered to give a cow to every home in the country if he is elected.


Victor Hettigoda is one of 13 candidates for the job. He doesn’t see it as buying votes. He said his plan is designed to fight malnutrition and make people prosper because every cow will be capable of yielding four gallons of milk every day.


The gift cows will be imported because the indigenous cattle of Sri Lanka are small and do not yield large amounts of milk. Hettigoda owns a herbal medicine empire and has 3,500 employees.



Catholic Nudity


Italy’s Catholic magazine, Famiglia Cristiana (Catholic Family) weekly, will apologize to its readers for printing an advertisement last week that showed a woman’s bare bottom. How do you think that slipped by the editors? Scandal under the nose of the pretentious Vatican. I love it.



And Finally


The Consequences Of Dirty Trickery

(If You Get Caught)


A Westmoreland County jury awarded a man $46,200 in damages after he sued his former girl friend for gluing his genitals to his abdomen.
