NEWSLETTER FOR FEBRUARY----1996-----E.R.M.
You will find in your package this time, the summary of the four Swift Identity tapes which some have wished for. I tried to summarize them so that they would not be so long and perhaps you would not lose interest before you get them read.
In the ‘Hutchinson News’ paper this week, was the story of the ‘State House Prayer Which Shocks Lawmakers.’ I thought that this Pastor was right on the mark with his prayer---so will reprint it for you.
“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and seek your direction and guidance. We know your word says, ‘woe to those who call evil good.’ But that is exactly what we’ve done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values.
We have worshiped other gods and called it multi-culturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called it ‘Lottery.’
We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building esteem.
We have abused power and called it political savvy.
We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, O God, and know our hearts today. Try us and see if there be some wicked way in us. Cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent here by the people of Kansas and who have been ordained by you to govern this great State. Grant them your wisdom to rule, and may their decisions direct us to the center of your will. I ask in the name of your Son, the Living Savior Jesus the Christ.” Amen.
(This was the prayer that got such a response from the minority in power in the Kansas political field. They were shocked, said the political ‘Left,’ and soon the Kansas Government body was divided along political lines. None of the Conservatives went to the microphone to protest the prayer. But the other side is said to be outraged. The message of intolerance expressed in the prayer, Sawyer said, ‘clearly illustrates the extremism that controls the House Republican Caucus even as a majority of its members attempt to falsely paint themselves as ‘middle-of-the-road.’ The leopards showed their ‘spots’ today.)
Here is a prediction---not that you would need a crystal ball for this one. You’ll soon be seeing validation of my earlier warning about the savagery and carnage coming to that ‘jewel’ of Clinton’s foreign affairs---Haiti. It really gets my goat that Voodoo Meister Jean Claude Aristide goes right on murdering political opponents which our hypocrite-in-Chief sends his congratulations on fair and democratic elections. Haiti is going down the tubes. But Clinton has shifted attention away off in another direction---namely, Bosnia.
Personally, I would rather see a soldier on every corner in our big cities, than have them off running errands for Bill Clinton around the globe. Guess my problem is, I learned about life from those old cowboy movies. Kind of stupid to go off chasing a few rustlers when there is a raiding party looting the ranch house. You know?
Question: I thought we got rid of Speaker Foley?
Answer: Former House Speaker Thomas Foley (D-WA) is not only working for a lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., but he also has an office in Spokane, Washington. It is this latter office that the taxpayers are paying for, plus a staff of three for Foley.
Former House Speakers who used to enjoy free office and staff for life have had their benefits cut somewhat. Two years ago, that perquisite was reduced to five years. This leaves Foley with only three more years on the ‘gravy train.’
The dark side of the ‘compassionate Clintons,’ is showing in the Billy Dale Travelgate hearings. Now that Billy Dale has lost not only his job, but a half-million dollars in legal fees to stay out of Federal prison, we find that defenders of the First Lady are after him again. They have sicked the Internal Revenue on him to try to find something that he might have done wrong.
The Republican freshmen are determined to complete the ‘Balanced Budget’ program, thus, the fight goes on. The media coverage does not help the party now in power from the last election. They seem to think they are extremists. This is a fight for status quo-----things as they have been for forty years, or a turn around for this country before we go off the edge of the cliff financially as well as otherwise in our society.
As to the economy being sound and growing----Senator Connie Mack of Florida, has been calling attention to the economic figures indicating that the economy is in trouble---that it has slowed down considerably. There are ominous signs that the higher marginal tax rates imposed by the Clinton Budget politics are beginning to slow down an economy that is short on job growth, consumer spending and capital investment. It is said that America’s huge 7 trillion dollar economy, takes about two years to fully respond to major economic policy changes, and that is the amount of time that has elapsed since Clinton’s tax increases went into effect.
The numbers tell the story and they are not pretty for a President just getting ready to begin his campaign for re-election. The men who should know, say that Clinton needs a Budget Deal to get the Economy moving. If Clinton wants to get re-elected, he must agree to a budget deal in order to move the Fed, which will ensue a strong economy in 1996,’ says economist, Bruce Bartlett, at the Center of Policy Analysis. There is another factor here and economist are amazed that the President does not see this and move. If the budget balancing makes the economy take off, this could produce the ironic results. A resurgent economy brought about by the GOP’s budget could keep Clinton in the White House for four more years as it would move this country away from a depression.
‘Start II’ which the Clinton Administration is pushing for Congress to sign, rewards Russia. Start II allows upgrades of Soviet SS-25's----wherein the United States is to destroy more armament. The former director of the Arms Control for National Security Agency (1981-1987), Sven F. Kraemer, says the defeat of this treaty is the only way to avoid another Pearl Harbor. He thinks that the Senate should read the treaty before voting on it.
Russian military leaders are constantly pushing and they have called ‘Start II’ ‘Manna’ from heaven, because it permits Russia’s current huge strategic modernization programs, that Start’s warhead downloading provision can be reversed thru uploading and that expected U.S. compliance would drastically reduce American nuclear capabilities and the U.S. Missile Defense. Start II’s ‘elastic’ arms control provisions support Russia’s assertive new ‘post-cold war’ military doctrine and modernizations goals announced in November of 1993, and ignored by the White House.
The Supreme Court, last week, heard arguments in United States verse Virginia. The case will determine whether the venerable Virginia Military Institute (VMI) will be allowed to remain an ‘all male’ college as it has been throughout its 157 year history. The ruling on the VMI will also decide the fate of the Citadel in South Carolina, the only other State supported ‘all-male’ military college in the United States.
But infinitely more than the fate of the two State military institutions is at stake in this case. In a radical new twist that was not present when the lower courts addressed the VMI and Citadel situations, the Clinton Justice department has asked the High Court to use this case to rule that---henceforth, differing treatment based on SEX be made subject to the same strict judicial scrutiny that the courts now apply to racial discrimination.
How far will High Court go?---Radical Feminism fuels the VMI case. Clarence Thomas has withdrawn from the case since his son attends the Virginia Military Institute. This is a loss for the side of Justice in this case.
For the court to approve the administration’s radical position, would require an act of transparent judicial tyranny. It would be an arrogant declaration by the Justices that they and not the people, or their elected representatives, in the State Legislatures and Congress---have taken it upon themselves, to be the ultimate arbiters of one of the most sensitive and personal of issues.---The relation between the sexes.
The Court would be substituting the personal whims of pro-feminist ideologies for the plain meaning of the Constitution. In the process, it would---not for the first time---though perhaps most egregiously---twist a document that was meant to restrain the heavy hand of government into a vehicle for DICTATORIAL POWER.
THE NEW COVENANT TIMES:-----
The inch must prevail over the meter.
‘Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgement, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have.’ (Leviticus 19: 35-36).
This publication is calling the attention of the British to the fact that the metric system which is being pushed so hare, is not Biblical and must be resisted. The Metric System dates from the French Revolution, whereas the ‘Inch’ is very ancient and is Biblical. The ‘Inch’ is an aliquot part of Earth’s polar diameter, non-monumentalized in the Great Pyramid as a single inch and as a measure of 25 such inches. The latter defined as the sacred Hebrew cubit is identical with that which Noah used in building the Ark. Moses used it when constructing the Tabernacle, and Solomon used it when he built the Temple. They all had the most detailed instruction from YAHWEH before they commenced their work. The metric system was born out of revolution at the time when the Holy Bible was being cast aside as the chief guide to human affairs. It is not scientific. The only advantageous feature of this system is that it is decimal. But ERROR decimalized, is error still.
Until next time-----YAHWEH willing.
