SAMSON PRATISES HIS RELIGION

Samson slaughtered hundreds of Philistines and circumcised them, in order
get a promised wife. Circumcision is a religious obligation, in one belief.
In America today, most baby doctors practises this as ritualistic
offerings. Actually, parents should be warned, when this operation is
performed. Moses did a way with this ancient law, but it is is practiced
today.

as a God sent jump start, weigh in on native considerations as a major
consideration. These two global giants has a problem in attempting to clear
up political tragedies of official prostitution between two global powers.

NO TOLERANCE FOR POLITICAL GODS

God has always been intolerant towards pseudo-
religious philosophies, based upon manís self-opinionated needs. Most
people do not explain
as to what deity being referred to in the singular.
In most cases to believe is only allying with Satan and his gang; for even
the devils believe. fear and tremble! From Gautama through Protestantism,
one major religious empire thrown
together with fear. Pull the money rug from be-
neath and all crumble, into the ancient man-made
temples of lust and gain.
Naturally, the temple was destroyed in
70 AD. Apparently, Something had gone wrong. God said that his personal
temple would be destroyed and resurrected in 3 days. Ignorant and super
ignorant, collectively, had been clinging to
spiritual stagnation after returning from Babylon.
America has become a modern day Babylon. Most
likely God is rejecting America,as in the past, for his nation,and
children, are now whoring

In the final days ( 100-170 ) that total
collapse of Godís church, which began at Antioch,
lost all contact with his people; God withdrew his divine messages through
prophets and Apostles.
To even imply that God has no body, parts or passion, in implying that
intolerance is
not love, is to subtly spread open rebellion
rebellion against anyone searching for truth.
The glory of God is intelligence. God actually hates ignorance! One cannot
be schooled
while under the influence of spiritual pablum in the hands of hundreds of
gods now flooding America. Look how Israel is treated today. The God
of Israel is now at the mercies of pseudo oriental
religious functionaries. Israel tries to practice
tolerance, while intolerance is preached from every house top.
Let me add: God is intolerant of every
device of pseudo religious prostition and its political power that feeds
from the national
treasury, Thank God for being intolerant.

THE CITY/COUNTY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Iím willing to bet that the county/city manager system has a toe hold
throughout the state of Michigan. .Basically, this is the ultimate in
political whoredom, that has infected America nationwide. We may find a few
of these self-seeking scoundrels on the level, as scatterbrained stool
pigeons. Basically, this growing menace is a set up by sharpies in the
banking and commercial industries wherever a roost is well salted down. In
estimation this setup is a master criminal conspiracy to further throttle a
peopleís attempt to be recognized, by political whoredomís hold in a
locality where citizens are tired of appointed deadbeats used as hit men in
order to do the dirty work of scoundrels in the background, where local
hooligans operate freely and the manager in office acts as a hit man,
More Than Likely, many states have fallen into the trap of a
well-regulated nest of political gangsters coining the city/ state
management political scheme, to literally rip off property owners via
elevating taxation, disguised in various manners. These planted
blood-suckers are tied in with the national industry of tourism. The gang
of investors pulling the wires are professional hoodlums, being tied in
with the commercial, banking and ghetto syndicates, to legally rob, steal,
and plunder any and all local responsible citizens. This is a concealed
third party political industry.

FROM SYCOPHANT TO GHETTO
It happens every day, The military attempts to remake down and out pavement
pounders, but fights a losing battle. This is a crime against humanoids. We
discover individuals, many, that have given over to drugs. These unsettled
and misunderstood souls never had a chance.This element originally hung on
street corners, pool halls and etc., sleeping in dumpsters, at times,
having been in prison and no friends. This life had been an avenue of
ghetto existence.
However, a bright future is in sight, when the military is to be a way out
for a bum to become something. It offers three meals per day, a place to
sleep and a monthly check. With caps in hand, usually, these types of
individuals pleads with a judge, or probationary officer, to swipe their
record clean, for the military will now take them off the streets. Too, and
the city gets rid of side-walk pounding ravagers.
Here, after settling down with multiple groups of men, friends are made.
Yes, it is thought that new fair-weather pals brings on a some what
elevated life. It is great to be accepted for an unknown out sider. What a
life. There is a lot of drinking, friendly arguing, paling around and hand
shaking, and usually playing up to some superior, as a certified sycophant.
Wow, itsí a wonderful life. All of a sudden, after amounting to something,
getting under the wings of Uncle Sam, a shallow world falls apart. The
military gets smart. Out of no where,a psychiatrist holds a conference.
This imposing misfit is presented with a section eight discharge, as unfit
for military life. And now, this loner is back on the streets from whence
he sprang.
From nothing to the top, its back to street corners and dumpsters. All of
his former military buddies are left behind. No one, takes up time nor
notices a distraught personality, who all of a sudden, became nothing
again, no peers, no nothing, no free liquor nor cigarette bumming, and from
the top back to the bottom. Here we blame judges, and probation officers,
for palming off a misfits onto the taxpayers responsibilities.
The lesson to be taught here is that the military has indirectly
contributed to men being discharged with mental disabilities, that should
have never entered any service in the beginning. Once more, political
whoredom has produced double-decker schizophrenics,returning home to roam
the streets in America. And time marches on, the constructing of so-called
half-way houses continues, in order to harbor hand-me-down paranoids. And
the circus moves on. There is only one last try for such vagabonds, and
that is to become a lawyer or a politician. As King Solomon surmised, ďAll
is vanityĒ. It is best to stay away from those of whom seek unlikely
pathways that eventually leads to an ugly ending.
The military is a great experience for young men to build character.
However, all rabble rousers should be avoided that prefer to bum the
streets. One last hope is to become a used-car salesman or insurance
peddler.

AMERICA UNDER ALIEN OCCUPATION
Ē The ultimate goal today in the One World Luciferan Conspiracy Government
Conspiracy is too take the weapons away from the citizens of the world so
they will have no problem exterminating those who will not bow to their
God. This is to be done by conditioning the gullible world into accepting
the phony peace plan which is to set up the United Nations as policemen of
the world. Under the plan, the United Nations would discipline any nation
that would try to start a war, by threatening that nation with nuclear
weapons, which the nations were to hand over to them.Ē
Information retrieved via translation by Sayyid Issa al Hah MahdiĖTHE BOOK
OF REVELATION 1991 A.D
Here we have the Occidental world and the Oriental empire attempting to
break from the contemporary descendants of ancient Esau and his brethren,
the Jebusites, of whom work as fellow demons to destroy Western and Eastern
civilizations. Hogorinaís opinion. Man is allowed to worship any God of his
choice. Staying within these bounds will all nations live together with
peace on the earth! The ancient Edomites, ( Idumeans ), continue to make
war upon the Israelite nation today.

BADGES BLOCKHEADS AND CIVIL AUTHORITY
Yes, indeed, our public nationwide loves responsible and brave police
officers, of whom serve well and are dedicated towards their duties as
servants of the people. This is all good and well; however, commies in
national government are making changes via internalizing an absolute ruling
element, all forms of police brutality being enforced with clubs and
beatings.

Apparently, people Across America are facing a growing dilemma of law
enforcement, as to various personalities entering the new gendarme
enforcement industry. Like any profession, lunatics and neurotics of
psychic instability as bad apples, will appear. This is nothing new in
national police work. It just so seems that when FEMA and SWAT opened their
doors as gestapo simpletons, bullies began to wear badges--bastion of
criminals.

Manís brutality can be harnessed so much under civil laws. Yet, pinning a
badge upon a psychoneurological disturbed personality is questionable.
Further, having disordered minds behind a cam to literally rip off the
public is nothing but legalized banditry. When some work of mechanical
technology snatches money from homo sapiens with a flick of a switch, then
it will be more worthy to return to the cave-man era, and to club thy
neighbor as usual, rather than railroading him with an unseen beam. Why not
put cash registers in all road-side speed traps, police cars, and save the
labor of switching on a cam.
Naturally, civil jobs in police activities are unproductive and do not
create any wealth. This, of course, applies to city and county managers who
turn their heads, in pulling money into their coffers, Public servants that
fit into the subject in question, including SWAT and FEMA, should seek
membership into the national IWWĖi wonít work union, or join the military.
But below and behold, the pentagon and its troops create no
wealth. Many FEMA and SWAT cannot join the military due to low IQs. It
takes an average of 76 for uncle Samís bread line. Goon squads, as police
lackeys, are great with cams and billy clubs.

ORIGIN OF MUD PEOPLE
FOXY ORGANIZATION
The John Birch Society was, and is now, an organization that neutralizes
any member that condemns or spotlights the communist movement within the
USA. Robert Welch was a retired candy maker. This political system was
founded in honor of a deceased individual named John Birch, a missionary
who was slain in China. Several decades past, one discovers that the
Birches had infiltrated numerous religious functionaries, churches, in
denouncing that the United Nations Organization was a front for radicalized
communist agents. For the most part, this presumption appears to be true.
Yet, with elevated religious fervor literally hundreds of thousands of
honest souls would listen to two-hour tapes and would immediately joined
up.Undoubtedly, twisted minds temporarily replaced their temporal God and
listened to the Oracle, Robert Welch, founder of the Birch society. To
disagree with any deceived member called for a complete ostracize, in the
name of their Lord. A new God had moved in. Most positive concerning the
very roots of this so-called patriotic organization is its open hands
inclusion of members of any religious outlet in America. Actually, it
coincided with Billy Grahamís catchall theory, of converting lost souls, of
whom happened to stumble into the spiritual providence of pseudo
intellectual craftsmanship, fronting for a Divine theocracy. But Mr.
Grahamís God was recognized as the one and only creator-all of this well
and good.
But lo and behold, the birches were in complete opposition to Grahamís
belief in a Supreme being, for in the ( The Blue Book ), the so-called
bible of the ( John Birch Society ), Pgs. 143-146 Welch proclaims that
mankind-washed forth from the ancient swamp lands, as slobs of muck and
mire, of which and gradually evolved into apes-anthropoids. Here we are at
loggerheads between Graham and Welch, in bringing simple-minded people into
the twin nets of two ambitious souls, Graham and Welch, letting their
imaginary screens of religion and anthropology wobble along the treaturous
path of baiting innocent souls through national politics and the
church/state connection. It is an actual truth that innocent souls have
been excommunicated from churches for questioning the MUD theory.
