Conspiracies and the lack of responsibility from the public at large

According to the 1828 Webster Dictionary, a conspiracy is:

A combination of men for an evil purpose; an agreement between two or more persons, to commit some crime in concert; particularly, a combination to commit treason, or excite sedition or insurrection against the government of a state; a plot…

The CIA and their ilk have done a tremendous job of maligning the term “conspiracy” to give it a rather negative connotation to the American public. Today to speak of a conspiracy, images of uneducated misled persons in tinfoil hats are conjured in sophisticated minds properly conditioned by the rhetoric. In fact, this conditioning is so prevalent that there is a stigma to actually admitting one does not believe the mainstream narrative and, heaven forbid, one has actually sought truth apart from the narrative.

For example, in 1953 a special investigative committee was appointed by Congressman Carroll Reece of Tennessee to investigate tax-exempt foundations. An allegation of a conspiracy to subvert American education with counter-American principles through tax exempt foundations was made and a subsequent congressional investigation called for. Mr. Norman Dodd was appointed the Director of Research, and the findings were published in “The Dodd Report to the Reece Committee on Foundations”.

[This report can be obtained with some effort. It is a public report and an alleged public record. But I found some difficulty obtaining it from my limited resources. I finally obtained one that started at page four of the report. I’m sure FOIA applications can be made for it. It is copyrighted 1954 and published by the Long House Inc. of NY. It’s Library of Congress Catalog Card Number is 54-11186.]

When the report set out to define its search, it referred to some studies detailed in The Economics of the Public Interest. A damning summary is found on page six and I will quote it below:

These original studies of the “public interest” disclosed that during the four years, 1933-1936, a change took place which was so drastic as to constitute a “revolution”. They also indicated conclusively that the responsibility for the economic welfare of the American people had been transferred heavily to the Executive Branch of the Federal Government; that a corresponding change in education had taken place from an impetus outside of the local community, and that this “revolution” had occurred without violence and with the full consent of an overwhelming majority of the electorate.

Before I go on, let me break it down. There were allegations and concerns that tax exempt foundations were using their monies to change the educational system in America so to redefine America itself and to subvert it to another agenda not found in the Constitution. The six month research found these allegations to be TRUE and posted them in their 1954 Dodd Report. And then Congress did nothing with it, in a sense, endorsing the continuing subversion of American education and ultimately, America.

So what we have here is a conspiracy. There was a conspiracy to alter America fundamentally and the vehicle decided upon was the educational system. This is not a conspiracy theory, this is a conspiracy. The research and findings conclusively agreed that this conspiracy had occurred and was occurring. Yet what mainstream America projects is that there is no conspiracy to subvert the foundations of America – that this is all conjecture and “conspiracy theory”. This is maddening to those of us who actually do the digging to understand the root issues and find the truth. We’re labeled “conspiracy theorists” and dismissed as irrelevant.

In fact, in 1976 (twenty years later), Mr. Dodd gave a speech in DC in which he retold a conversation he had with Rowan Gaither, the President of the Ford Foundation at the beginning of his investigation. Mr. Gaither told Mr. Dodd, “…we operate here under directives which emanate from the White House.” He then elaborated on what those directives were, “The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.”

Now you tell me why the Executive Branch of the Federal Government was giving directives to foundations to alter life in America to merge with a communist society? On page seven of the Dodd Report additional findings of their investigation outline the following purposes:

  • Directing education in the United States toward an international viewpoint and discrediting the traditions to which it [formerly] had been dedicated.
  • Training individuals and servicing agencies to render advice to the Executive branch of the Federal Government.
  • Decreasing the dependency of education upon the resources of the local community and freeing it from many of the natural safeguards inherent in this American tradition.
  • Changing both school and college curricula to the point where they sometimes denied the principles underlying the American way of life.
  • Financing experiments designed to determine the most effective means by which education could be pressed into service of a political nature.

So right there you have black and white evidence of a system designed to subvert the traditions of America to such a point they will turn the very nature of “education” into a political vehicle to achieve their goals of transforming America into a communist-like nation.

The report goes on to attempt to research and answer the questions asked by Congress in H. Res. 217, which are outlined on page eight of the report. To answer those questions the committee studied “the development of American education since the turn of the century and of the trends in techniques of teaching of the development of curricula since that time.” (pg. 8, Dodd Report) The rest of their report outlines their findings and answers those questions.

In Dodd’s conclusion on page 15 he states, “It seems incredible that the trustees of typically American fortune-created foundations should have permitted them to be used to finance ideas and practices incompatible with the fundamental concepts of our Constitution. Yet there seems evidence that this may have occurred.”

To sum up the conspiracy of a body of persons conspiring to commit treasonous acts against the Constitution of America, and ultimately against America, Mr. Dodd, in his 1976 speech explained that during his research on this committee, his committee members were given access to the Minute Books of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace to peruse for their research. Mr. Dodd sent a member of his staff to New York to go through the records. He brought back to Mr. Dodd dictaphone belts with minute notes of their Trustee meetings. In 1908 meetings they raised the question of how to alter life of an “entire people”. They discussed this for about a year and concluded that war was the quickest way to alter the way of life for a body of people. They then asked the question of how to involve the US in a war and came up with the answer of controlling “the diplomatic machinery of the United States.” When they brainstormed on how to do that, they surmised, “We must control the State Department.”

Is this not treason?? Was this not a conspiracy?

Continued reading of the minutes found that in 1914 the Trustees discussed the issue of Americans reverting back to their former way of life (and thinking) after war, and they did not want this outcome. So after discussion, they determined to keep that from happening they “must control education in the United States.” These people then formulated their plan for altering and controlling education in America.

They began with a plot to change the way American history was taught. They approached three key historians with their agenda and were rejected. The historians would not go along with it. So they formed their own group of historians by using the Guggenheim Foundation. [Now are you seeing how tax-exempt foundations were used to subvert America?] They used the Guggenheim Foundation to recruit new scholars in the field of teaching history and gave them fellowships to study in London under their directives. Within a decade or two, they had groomed the top national historians to do exactly what they plotted, and history in America’s educational system transitioned accordingly.

The Dodd Report goes on to demonstrate the transition to “Social Engineers” from the Social Sciences. It points out that the outcome of this program is to trade objectivity in science for “techniques of control”. It goes on to suggest “that our traditional concept of freedom as the function of natural and constitutional law has already been abandoned….” (pp. 12-13)

I’d love to continue on of the ills to America that followed, but that is not the purpose of this paper. The purpose is to outline that conspiracies abound in our nation and world, and they are more than theories. The purpose is to challenge the status quo and the rhetoric of a bought and paid for media that includes Hollywood personalities, large corporation heads, politicians and the like.

The evidence has been both hidden and exposed, but seems to be relatively dormant for lack of attention. In 1954 Senator William Jenner plainly depicted the idea of a “Deep State” when he said,

“Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government – a bureaucratic elite.”
Was Mr. Jenner merely speaking of theories of conspiracies?

It’s not that a one world government is an agenda for a group of growing individuals; it’s that there is a conspiracy in the highest ranks of power and money to strip America of its sovereignty and place it under an international rule, ruled of course by an elite ruling class. And it’s not even a theory. They have proudly owned it. David Rockefeller wrote it in his Memoirs:

“Some even believe we are a part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty and I am proud of it.”
When Americans begin to understand the truth and actuality of this plot, so much of the staged events in our nation begin to make sense. They can be traced back over a hundred years, as Norman Dodd’s research evidenced. Consider New York Mayor John F. Hylan’s words in 1922:

“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.”

He clearly outlined Rockefellers at the helm, and the plot was understood even almost a hundred years ago. Are we not paying attention? And today we have the advantage of a wealth of resources at our fingertips to educate us in spite of a manipulated state-run educational system, and yet we seem reluctant or apathetic or complacent enough to sit and allow it. There are many who have dared to cross the agenda and have paid for it with their lives. Are their sacrifices for nothing??

Representative Larry P. MacDonald was bold in his assertions of this conspiracy. He was killed in a questionable plane accident four months after an indicting interview with Pat Buchanan and Tom Braden in 1983 on Crossfire. He said,

“The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control. Do I mean a conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, incredibly evil in intent.”

Joseph Kennedy told the New York Times on July 26, 1936, “Fifty men have run America, and that’s a high figure.” Is this all just allegorical rhetoric? How can we be this deceived?

Well known researcher and “conspiracy theorist” Mae Brussell was quoted in The Realist, February 1974:

Our lives are being manipulated by specific individuals who can be identified and exposed. Conspiracy theories only remain “theories” when there is no court, no lawyer, no judge, no Congress, with the courage to expose the evidence. In every case where the evidence is pursued, the “theory” becomes a clear-cut case of criminal conspiracy.

It’s not that there isn’t enough evidence in a conspiracy; it’s that there isn’t enough interest or conviction in arresting wickedness.

We are quite plainly without excuse. The evidence is available for our scrutiny. Witnesses have come forth in every generation. Culprits have even admitted to the plot. There are enough dead bodies and sacrifices to warrant investigation. But the general public seems content to allow the propaganda machine through the media and celebrity America to dictate their convictions.

And don’t think that American Christianity is interested in exposing evil. The western church is one of the biggest culprits of irrelevance in modern society. Not only is it barely enacting its mandate to bring the gospel to all people, but also it has copiously managed to replicate the current trends of just about every aspect of the world, from fashion, to hierarchy, to politics, to bureaucracy, to business models, to music, to clichés, etc. Life changing truths are rarely found from a church pulpit anymore. You might be able to find one in a sincere study group, or a gathering of likeminded believers, but you’ll have to look long and hard. And to teach material that actually incorporates Ephesians 5:11-17 would find one hard-pressed for actual students. No one is really that interested.

Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, ” Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.”

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Romanian pastor Richard Wurmbrand, imprisoned for sixteen years by the Soviet Communists for preaching the gospel, tortured with the scars to prove it, once told a reporter, “I have suffered more from the complacency of the West than from the Communists.”

No, do not expect the western church, (which should be a vessel for truth), to expose the unfruitful deeds of darkness that are altering the state of our nation. But what you can do is educate yourself. When you begin to see the patterns and playbooks of those intent on evil, you won’t fall for the theatrics they use to bring them about. But that’s another paper for another day…

Trial by Fire – rightly perceiving current crises

USA Today reported on October 3, 2017 a little of the cataclysmic unfolding across America in their article titled, “Storms, earthquakes, North Korea and now the Las Vegas massacre. We have to wonder: ‘What’s next?’” The article laid out the various traumas to sections of America over the past few months, and it begged the question for understanding. The article ended with a quote from a pastor (of all things) in Tulsa: “But with all that’s going on in the world,’’ he admits, “you can’t help but be a little bit apocalyptic.”

[You can read the article here: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/10/03/storms-quakes-fires-korea-and-now-vegas-shooting-whats-next/725889001/]

What an amazing time to be alive on the earth! Fires and floods, wars and violence, intrigues and conspiracies abound. There is no shortage of drama. What could we possibly be learning if we were paying attention? Should the drama of the fires, the hurricanes, the floods, the murders, the political climate, the race wars, the lies and injustices, etc. cause us to pause? Might they be a harbinger?

We should be paying attention! We should be asking for eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts that can comprehend. Years ago when I set myself to learn about the second coming of Christ, to understand the prophecies, to grasp the context of Revelation, the Lord spoke to me and He simply said, “Study my first advent to understand my second.”

The fires that have been raging for months, even unto today on the west coast, are symbolic of the fires of purification and judgment the Lord has unleashed. We’d do well to pay attention, to respond with, “Yes Lord, your servant is listening.” He’s speaking to us as a nation, and He’s speaking to us individually. Wisdom will listen.

Look at what He said to His people concerning the first appearance of our Lord, and pay attention, because it applies for the second as well:

Malachi 3:1-3 KJV

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, says the Lord of hosts.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.

The prophet asks who could possibly stand at the appearing of the Messiah? Then he explains why that question needs to be asked: “for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap.”

Refiner’s fire is the fire that purifies the gold and silver. The metal is held in the flame until the dross is burned off and the metal is purified to the point the refiner can see his reflection in it. The fire is kept at a certain temperature, one that is hot enough to burn off impurities, but not too hot that it alters the metal. It’s a skill by the blacksmith. The prophet also equates this refining process to fullers’ soap, which is the process of making white cloth as white as it can be.

The appearing of the Lord is foreshadowed by a cleansing of His people. The Lord sends fire to test our hearts and purify our souls. This fire is meant to burn away the dross, the impurities. It’s usually a painful process. It has to be; the impurities are mixed in with the pure and they have to be separated.

This is an amazing process because the Lord is doing this right now, and He’s doing it nationally and personally. Individually we need to embrace the trials before us and allow the Lord to do His cleansing work. There are things in our lives we need to be rid of, and if we haven’t expelled them of our own repentance processes, out of love and necessity, God will take us through the fire to remove them. Notice the end result: the reflection of the refiner is then seen in the metal. We should not shirk back from this process. We need this process.

Nationally, the Lord is separating the godly from the ungodly. By the time these fires, whether it be through natural disasters (fires, floods, storms, etc) or cultural disasters (race wars, political wars, economic wars, etc), have run their courses, there will be a stark separation between those who walk with God and those who do not. America’s melting pot will produce two categories of people as these days ramp up: godly and ungodly. This is the separation of the sheep from the goats.   This is another necessary process. Why? Because the testimony of the godly will be the judgment of the ungodly. By God’s own law a judgment is established on the testimony of two or more witnesses. The ungodly will be without excuse because God is refining the godly to be a pure witness. The same word we translate “witness” is also “martyr”.

Consider just recent events as a precursor. Antifa and the likes have declared a revolution upon anyone in opposition to their own beliefs. Their self-professed tactics include “punching Nazis”. Who do they define as Nazis? Anyone who disagrees with them. They have armed themselves with knives, clubs and guns to beat their opposition, quite literally. This is precisely what Islam does in every region of the world they have enough numbers to substantiate. As soon as they establish a significant presence in an area, they begin the demarcation process. Black Lives Matter has set itself on a path of violence as well, and lines and allegiances have been called for. They have aligned themselves against the police, and their narrative is a call to do the same. Consider the ongoing battle between the NFL powers and patriots. How much vitriol has been spewed from the mouths of these actors? Can we not see a separation occurring? Delineating lines have been drawn in just about every public venue. Politically, it’s not really Democrats vs. Republicans anymore. It’s those adhere to the Constitution, and those who would like to redefine it. It is globalists versus national sovereignty. Hollywood has set itself against Trump and conservative America. Big Pharma has set itself against the natural holistic community. There are precious few gray areas anymore.

It should cause us to evaluate our beliefs and our convictions. We should be checking our attitudes against the principles of our faith.

What did John the Baptist teach us about the Lord’s coming?

Matt 3:11-12 NASU

As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I… He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

John predicts Christ’s modus operandi: fire. Christ separates. We really need to understand this. The winnowing fork separates the worthless part from the precious. The precious is preserved, and the worthless is burned. I suggest to you today that Christ has His winnowing fork in hand and He is separating the worthless from the worthy. When the separation is complete, His job is finished. He will return. We really should be paying attention to the separation process going on right now in our lives and in our nation.

We can’t afford to miss understanding the season we’re in. Evil and wickedness abound today in our nation, in our culture and society, and in this world. Righteousness abounds as well, but they are becoming starkly separated. This is purposeful. God is separating; we’d do well to cooperate. Don’t fret about the condition of the wickedness, though the days are getting darker. This will not change. The raging we’re witnessing in our nation with people groups frothing in violence and rebellion is indicative of a world rejecting God. Our eyes must not be fixed on these. Recall the angel’s words to Daniel in his final prophecy,

Dan 12:10 KJV

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

There are two categories in this prophetic instruction: those being purified and the wicked. Those enraged and inflicting great damages on our nation, our society, and other people are quite simply wicked, with no understanding. If we are wise, we will realize we are being purified by these trials. We must submit to the purification process so that we reflect the image of our blacksmith, the One who baptizes with fire.

Are you being held in the flame? Then rejoice, and cooperate with the burning of the dross. Is fullers’ soap being rubbed across you so that you are practically raw? Then rejoice because you are being made white. Be of the category of the wise who embrace the purification of the Lord. There are plenty of wicked with no understanding of the process our nation is going through. We see them every day on the airwaves, newspapers, magazines, at our jobs, in our schools, on the internet… They will continue in their deeds without understanding. “The wicked shall [continue to] do wickedly.” We must understand our Lord is on His way, but before He gets here, He is refining us so that He is what He sees when He looks at us.

The trials we’re witnessing in our nation are the process of separating the godly from the ungodly. America is going through a demarcation, as is probably the whole world. The trials we’re experiencing in our individual lives are the refining process to ready us to meet our King. May we respond with wisdom and understanding.
