At least 12 killed in shooting rampage at Washington Navy Yard, chief says.
“EMO” IT’S DEMOSTRATED: THE SECURITY OF THE INSTALATIONS CIVIL OR MILITARY, THEATER , SCHOOLS, OR SPORT MARATONS IN TE UNITED ESTATES IS ABSOLUTILY DEFICIENT UNDER OBAMA GOBERMENT AND THE TERRORIST ABUSE OF SECURITY SYSTEM ??? LRGM
By Jim Miklaszewski, Pete Williams, Richard Esposito and Erin McClam, NBC News
A man brandishing an assault rifle, shotgun and handgun opened fire Monday inside a building at the Washington Navy Yard. The city police chief said 12 people were killed.
SWAT officers swarmed the building, the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, and a shooter there was killed, sources told NBC News. Law enforcement officials identified the gunman to NBC News as Aaron Alexis, 34, originally of Fort Worth, Texas. They said he recently began working as a civilian contractor.
Chief Cathy Lanier said there could be as many as two other suspects at large, one white and one black, both seen with firearms and wearing military-style uniforms. But reports conflicted in the chaotic hours after the rampage, and there was no confirmation of more than one person firing shots.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last December, and the worst at a military installation since 13 people were killed at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009.
The number of injured was not clear.
President Barack Obama called it a “cowardly act.” He said the rampage targeted patriots, military and civilian alike, “men and women who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us.”
NBC’s Jim Miklaszewski reports on the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. and shares the latest information. NBC’s Kasie Hunt also joins the conversation.
Terrie Durham, who works at the Naval Sea Systems Command building, said she saw a gunman who appeared to be wearing dark fatigues. Another worker there, Todd Brundidge, said he heard a fire alarm go off, and later saw the gunman come around the corner.
“He turned our way and started firing, and we ran downstairs to get out of the building,” Brundidge said. “No words. He raised the gun and started firing.”
A naval security guard was among those shot and was hit in both legs, U.S. military officials said. Washington city police told WRC, the NBC affiliate in Washington, that one of their officers was also among those shot. It was not clear how many of the others shot were civilian and how many were military.
Patricia Ward, who works at the Navy Yard, said she had just gotten breakfast in the cafeteria when she heard “three gunshots, pow-pow-pow, straight in a row.”
“All of the people that were in the cafeteria, we all panicked, and we were trying to decide which way we were going to run out,” she said. “I just ran.”
Tim Hogan, a spokesman for Rep. Steven Horsford of Nevada, posted photos to his Twitter account of people tending to at least one person down on a street corner.
Chaos enveloped the surrounding neighborhood for hours. Flights were briefly grounded at Reagan National Airport, and nearby schools and the headquarters of the Department of Transportation were locked down. Farther away, police stepped up security on the Capitol grounds.
Washington police issued lookouts for two people they described as suspects — a 50-year-old black man with a rifle, wearing an olive drab military uniform, and a white man with a pistol, wearing a short-sleeved, khaki uniform and a beret.
Dr. Janis Orlowski, the chief medical officer at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said that the hospital was treating three gunshot victims — a woman hit in the head and hand, a woman hit in the shoulder and a man hit in the legs.

She said that the victims came in alert and talking.
“They’re talking about gunshots that they heard in rapid succession,” she said.
George Washington University Hospital said it had one patient.
Obama, speaking at an event marking the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis, turned to the shooting and said: “We are confronting yet another mass shooting, and today it happened on a military installation in our nation’s capital.”
“It’s a shooting that targeted our military and civilian personnel,” he said. “These are men and women who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us. They’re patriots. And they know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they faced the unimaginable violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home.”
The Navy said on its Twitter feed that three shots were fired at 8:20 a.m. ET at the Sea Systems Command headquarters. About 3,000 people work there, the Navy said. They were ordered to stay in place. WRC video showed a medical helicopter lifting someone off a roof.
“This is a huge piece of land with several building so it’s going to take some time for us to get through it and search it so we can make sure it’s safe,” Peter Newsham, assistant chief of the Washington police, told reporters.
Obama was getting regular briefings.
The Naval Sea Systems Command builds, buys and maintains ships and submarines and their combat systems. The Navy Yard is along the Anacostia River in Washington, near the Washington Nationals baseball stadium.
Tracy Connor, Kasie Hunt, Michael O’Brien and Andrew Rafferty of NBC News contributed to this report.

Diego Quiros, Sr: A PROPOSITO DE SIRIA
El Sr. Presidente Barack Obama, nuevamente sorprende a la Nación con sus declaraciones de abastecer con armas a los revoltosos en Siria.
Esto realmente no podemos entenderlo, los problemas que confronta Siria son de origen étnico-religioso. El Sr. Presidente llego a amenazar con el envio de tropas alegando el uso de armas químicas contra los sediciosos.
Aun recordamos las duras críticas del Sr. Obama cuando era candidato por el Partido Democrata contra el Ex-presidente Sr. George W. Bush por la guerra de Iraq en busca de armas químicas de destuccion masiva
El Sr. Obama, se opuso a la guerra de Iraq, ¿Cómo es que ahora basado en hechos similares amenaza un ataque contra el gobierno de Siria?.
¿Cuál es el motivo de intervenir en un conflicto en el que no ha ocasionado ningún daño a esta Nación?
El Sr. Obama se refirió a lo que pudiera pensar el resto del mundo si los Estados Unidos no intervinieran para poner fin al conflicto.
Nosotros nos preguntamos:¿ Que hizo la Administracion del Sr. Obama con los funestos sucesos en la Embajada de Estados Unidos en Benghazi?
Estabamos en presencia de un atentado a un territorio Norteamericano con fatales consecuencias, ¿Qué hizo el Comandante en Jefe de la Nacion? Nada, guardo silencio en unión de sus asesores.
Nosotros opinamos que los Estados Unidos tienen a 90 millas de su territorio una tiranía comunista que lleva 54 años en el poder. El delirante Castro ha utilizado el territotio cubano para entrenar guerrillas, albergar terroristas internacionales prófugos de la justicia. El suelo cubano ha servido como base de espionaje contra los Estados Unidos, permitió el emplazamiento de misiles para atacar a los americanos. El régimen de Cuba flirtea con todo aquel del que pueda obtener una ventaja y no vacilaría en arriesgar a sus ciudadanos y poner el territorio nacional a la disposición de cualquiera nacion en un conflicto con los Estados Unidos; sin embargo el Sr. Obama continua incrementando todo tipo de negociaciones y facilidades a la dictadura que viola los derechos humanos de 11 millones de personas.
Sera que usted y el Secretario de Estado no les interesan estos asuntos porque en Cuba el conflicto es político y no religioso?
Hace muy pocas semanas las autoridades panameñas detuvieron un barco sin bandera perteneciente a la comunista Corea del Norte traficando con armas estratégicas y misiles procedentes de Cuba.
¿Que medidas va a tomar su administración para proteger la seguridad nacional ante este riesgoso insidente?
Ante esta circuntancia el mundo tendría toda la razón de cuestionar la flaqueza de la Administracion del Sr. Obama y sus asesores.
Sr. Presidente, pregúntele al Sr. Kerry por qué estaba en las protestas callejeras contra la guerra de Viet Nam que se defendían de los comunistas y ahora es complice suyo contra el gobierno de Siria.
WND EXCLUSIVE. UNLOCKED! JFK MURDER SECRETS HIDDEN FOR 50 YEARS. No. 1 N.Y. Times bestselling author unveils ultimate Kennedy assassination book
At the height of his presidential popularity, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was gunned down while riding in a Dallas motorcade, a singular tragedy widely regarded as the end of America’s post-war “age of innocence.”

At the time, a concerted effort was made by the Warren Commission, appointed by the Lyndon Johnson White House, to officially and for all time lay the entire blame on “lone gunman” Lee Harvey Oswald.
Now, 50 years later, recently declassified documents shed new light on what really happened, both leading up to and on the fateful day of Nov. 22, 1963.
Being released nationally this week, “Who Really Killed Kennedy,” by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi, is the culmination of decades of meticulous research.
Corsi, an acclaimed investigative journalist, has sorted through the mountains of evidence – the hundreds of books, the tens of thousands of documents (including all twenty-six volumes of the Warren Commission’s report), several films and countless photographs.
Note: Jerome Corsi will appear on the national radio program “Coast to Coast AM” Tuesday night and Wednesday morning discussing his new book.
His research, in addition to other locations, took him to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston and the National Archives and Records Administration in College Park, Md.
Dissecting the Warren Commission’s conclusion that Oswald acted alone, he carefully and convincingly separates the unlikely from the real, and the speculation from the facts. Having personally known or met many of the key players in the JFK assassination drama, including a former top Soviet bloc intelligence official, Corsi reveals shocking information for the first time ever.
Secret details of JFK’s assassination are finally unlocked. Get your autographed copy of “Who Really Killed Kennedy?” by Jerome Corsi now!
Meticulously researched and fully documented, “Who Really Killed Kennedy?” is the definitive source for those who, after five decades, wish to truly understand how and why John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated – including information that has largely been hidden from the American people since the 1960s.
In this ultimate guide to the JFK assassination, readers will learn about:
the ballistic evidence that proves there was more than one shooter
the rarely studied final few frames of the Zapruder film that prove the wound in the back of JFK’s head was an exit wound
the eyewitnesses who saw Oswald in the second floor lunchroom when Dallas police rushed in the building
the two previous attempts to assassinate JFK in November 1963
how Lee Harvey Oswald had extensive ties to the CIA and the KGB, and about his sordid relationship with his murderer, Jack Ruby
how JFK was aware specific plans were being made to assassinate him
how JFK double-crossed Richard Nixon and the CIA to win the election of 1960
the tape-recorded confessions Mafia godfathers made detailing their involvement in financing and planning the JFK assassination
how JFK lost control of the CIA when he decided to pull the US military out of Vietnam, where top CIA operatives were engaged in drug trafficking.
how JFK and Life magazine threatened to derail LBJ’s political career
The Kennedy assassination has rightly been called the greatest “who-done-it?” of the 20th century. Jerome Corsi sets a new standard for JFK assassination research, demanding that future researchers understand the deep, and unfortunately sinister, political forces that led up to an unthinkable event that marked a profound change in America, and the world.
Currently serving as senior staff reporter for online news giant WND, Corsi holds a Ph.D. from Harvard in political science and has authored numerous bestsellers, including No. 1 New York Times bestsellers “Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality” and (with co-author John E. O’Neill) “Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry.”

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA –Lets Start the Conversation on Race. Let the conversation begin.
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to…. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:
· First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
· Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks—with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas—to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks. We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?
Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids…? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?
Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al [Sharpton] about Tawana Brawley, the Duke Rape Case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.
Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.
This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear! OK…will you pass it on? YES. I did but will you? Because I’m for a better America

” EMO” Aqui tienen una traduccion al Espanol: LRGM
BUCHANAN A OBAMA – Inicia conversación sobre raza . ¡Que empiece la conversación.
Por Patrick J. Buchanan
Barack dice que necesitamos tener una conversación sobre la raza en América. Me parece justo. Pero esta vez , tiene que ser una conversación de dos vías . Los Blancos Americano necesitan ser escuchados, no sólo conferencias…. Esta vez, la mayoría silenciosa quieren que sus convicciones , quejas y demandas sean escuchadas . Y entre ellos se encuentran los siguientes:
· En primer lugar , Estados Unidos ha sido el mejor país del mundo para los negros . Fue aquí donde 600.000 personas de raza negra , traídos de África en barcos de esclavos , se convirtieron en una comunidad de 40 millones de dólares , fueron presentados a la salvación cristiana , y llegó a los mayores niveles de libertad y prosperidad negros han conocido. El supuesto Reverendo Wright debe ir de rodillas y dar gracias a Dios, él es un americano.
· En segundo lugar, hay gente en cualquier lugar ha hecho más que en ayudar a los negros que a los blancos. Incontables billones se han gastado desde los años 60 en el bienestar , cupones de comida , alquiler de suplementos, Sección 8 de vivienda , becas Pell , préstamos estudiantiles , servicios legales, Medicaid , el ingreso créditos tributarios y programas contra la pobreza diseñadas para unir a la comunidad afro-americana a la corriente principal. Gobiernos, las empresas y las universidades se han involucrado en la discriminación contra la gente blanca – con la acción afirmativa , el contrato de reservas de contratos y cuotas – para avanzar solicitantes negros frente a los solicitantes blancos. Iglesias , fundaciones , grupos cívicos , escuelas e individuos en todo Estados Unidos han donado su tiempo y dinero para apoyar a los comedores , educación para adultos , guarderías, pensiones y casas de reposo para los negros . Escuchamos las quejas. ¿Dónde está la gratitud?
Barack habla de nuevo ” escaleras de oportunidad” para los negros . Que se vaya a Altoona? Y Johnstown, y pedir a los niños blancos en las escuelas católicas cuántos fueron visitados recientemente por los reclutadores Ivy League repartiendo becas para “merecedores” chicos blancos …? Es la América blanca realmente responsable del hecho de que los índices de delincuencia y el encarcelamiento para afroamericanos son siete veces superiores a las de la América blanca? ¿Es realmente culpa de blanco Latina que la ilegitimidad de la comunidad afro- americana ha llegado a 70 por ciento y la tasa de abandono negro de las escuelas secundarias en algunas ciudades ha alcanzado el 50 por ciento?
¿Es culpa de la América blanca o , ante todo , un fallo de la propia comunidad de negro ?
En cuanto al racismo , su manifestación es más fea en el crimen interracial, y los crímenes interraciales , especialmente de la violencia. ¿Es Barack Obama en cuenta que mientras que los delincuentes eligen víctimas blancas negras del 3 por ciento de las veces , los delincuentes negros escogen víctimas blancas el 45 por ciento de las veces ?
Es consciente Barack que las violaciones de negros sobre blancos son 100 veces más común que a la inversa, que los robos en negro sobre blanco eran 139 veces más común en los tres primeros años de esta década como la inversa?
Todos hemos oído hasta la saciedad desde el Rev. Al [ Sharpton ] sobre Tawana Brawley, el caso de violación de Duke y Jena. Y todos resultaron ser falsas alarmas . Pero acerca de la epidemia de asaltos negros en blancos que son reales , no escuchamos nada .
Lo sentimos , Barack , algunos de nosotros hemos oído todo desde unos 40 años y 40 billones de dólares de impuestos.
Esto tiene que ser pasado a todos los americanos de todas las razas, porque, este es un mensaje de todo el mundo necesita oír! Bien … Los negros y los blancos, vas a pasarlo? Yo si lo hice , pero lo harás to obama? y tu tambien si, tu deja de tener miedo. Debes tenerle miedo al miedo en si mismo.
Porque yo estoy a favor de una mejor América, Lo estas tu?

Obama Arms Muslim Terrorists With Machine Guns But Wants U.S. by Philip Hodges
The Obama administration announced recently that it would start overtly arming the Syrian “rebels.” Overtly, as opposed to covertly. I have a hard time believing that they’re just now starting to arm the rebellion. They’ve been doing this for a long time under the radar. It’s just that, now, they’re making it public. Apparently, there had been a delay in getting the arms to the rebel groups in Syria, but it’s being reported now that those shipments are finally coming in. The Washington Post reported last week: “The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war. The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.” When they say “light weapons,” they’re not talking about slingshots: “The CIA has been delivering light machine guns and other small arms to Syrian rebels for several weeks, following President Barack Obama’s decision to arm the rebels. The agency has also arranged for the Syrian opposition to receive anti-tank weaponry like rocket-propelled grenades through a third party, presumably one of the Gulf countries that has been arming the rebels, a senior U.S. intelligence official and two former intelligence officials said Thursday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the classified program publicly.” They call them “light weapons” when they’re talking about arming terrorists. If Americans had these so-called “light weapons,” they’d go to jail. They’re illegal. (Well, essentially illegal.) Can you imagine if Obama allowed only semi-automatic rifles with magazines with no more than a 10-round capacity to be sent to the rebels? They’d laugh. They want real weapons. Like real assault weapons. Machine guns. Anti-tank weapons such as RPGs. And I’m sure that’s not all. The dark irony here is that U.S. taxpayers are working and paying taxes to a government that is slowly but surely disarming Americans through regulations in the name of getting guns off the streets and out of the “wrong hands.” It’s about “public safety and security.” And the children. All the while, this tax money is being spent on arming terrorists overseas with machine guns and RPGs. Makes perfect sense.

The Georgia Gide stone. Monumental Instructions for the Post-Apocalypse.
American Stonehenge: Monumental Instructions for the Post-Apocalypse
By Randall The Georgia Guidestones may be the most enigmatic monument in the US: huge slabs of granite, inscribed with directions for rebuilding civilization after the apocalypse. Only one man knows who created them—and he’s not talking.
Photo: Dan WintersTHE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
The strangest monument in America looms over a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia. Five massive slabs of polished granite rise out of the earth in a star pattern. The rocks are each 16 feet tall, with four of them weighing more than 20 tons apiece. Together they support a 25,000-pound capstone. Approaching the edifice, it’s hard not to think immediately of England’s Stonehenge or possibly the ominous monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built in 1980, these pale gray rocks are quietly awaiting the end of the world as we know it.
Called the Georgia Guidestones, the monument is a mystery—nobody knows exactly who commissioned it or why. The only clues to its origin are on a nearby plaque on the ground—which gives the dimensions and explains a series of intricate notches and holes that correspond to the movements of the sun and stars—and the “guides” themselves, directives carved into the rocks. These instructions appear in eight languages ranging from English to Swahili and reflect a peculiar New Age ideology. Some are vaguely eugenic (GUIDE REPRODUCTION WISELY—IMPROVING FITNESS AND DIVERSITY); others prescribe standard-issue hippie mysticism (PRIZE TRUTH—BEAUTY—LOVE—SEEKING HARMONY WITH THE INFINITE).
What’s most widely agreed upon—based on the evidence available—is that the Guidestones are meant to instruct the dazed survivors of some impending apocalypse as they attempt to reconstitute civilization. Not everyone is comfortable with this notion. A few days before I visited, the stones had been splattered with polyurethane and spray-painted with graffiti, including slogans like “Death to the new world order.” This defacement was the first serious act of vandalism in the Guidestones’ history, but it was hardly the first objection to their existence. In fact, for more than three decades this uncanny structure in the heart of the Bible Belt has been generating responses that range from enchantment to horror. Supporters (notable among them Yoko Ono) have praised the messages as a stirring call to rational thinking, akin to Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason. Opponents have attacked them as the Ten Commandments of the Antichrist.
Whoever the anonymous architects of the Guidestones were, they knew what they were doing: The monument is a highly engineered structure that flawlessly tracks the sun. It also manages to engender endless fascination, thanks to a carefully orchestrated aura of mystery. And the stones have attracted plenty of devotees to defend against folks who would like them destroyed. Clearly, whoever had the monument placed here understood one thing very well: People prize what they don’t understand at least as much as what they do.
The story of the Georgia Guidestones began on a Friday afternoon in June 1979, when an elegant gray-haired gentleman showed up in Elbert County, made his way to the offices of Elberton Granite Finishing, and introduced himself as Robert C. Christian. He claimed to represent “a small group of loyal Americans” who had been planning the installation of an unusually large and complex stone monument. Christian had come to Elberton—the county seat and the granite capital of the world—because he believed its quarries produced the finest stone on the planet.
Joe Fendley, Elberton Granite’s president, nodded absently, distracted by the rush to complete his weekly payroll. But when Christian began to describe the monument he had in mind, Fendley stopped what he was doing. Not only was the man asking for stones larger than any that had been quarried in the county, he also wanted them cut, finished, and assembled into some kind of enormous astronomical instrument.
What in the world would it be for? Fendley asked. Christian explained that the structure he had in mind would serve as a compass, calendar, and clock. It would also need to be engraved with a set of guides written in eight of the world’s major languages. And it had to be capable of withstanding the most catastrophic events, so that the shattered remnants of humanity would be able to use those guides to reestablish a better civilization than the one that was about to destroy itself.
Built to survive the apocalypse, the Georgia Guidestones are not merely instructions for the future—the massive granite slabs also function as a clock, calendar, and compass.
The monument sits at the highest point in Elbert County and is oriented to track the sun’s east-west migration year-round. On an equinox or solstice, visitors who stand at the west side of the “mail slot” are positioned to see the sun rise on the horizon. An eye-level hole drilled into the center support stone allows stargazers on the south side to locate Polaris, the North Star. A 7/8-inch hole drilled through the capstone focuses a sunbeam on the center column and at noonpinpoints the day of the year.

Fendley is now deceased, but shortly after the Guidestones went up, an Atlanta television reporter asked what he was thinking when he first heard Christian’s plan. “I was thinking, ‘I got a nut in here now. How am I going get him out?'” Fendley said. He attempted to discourage the man by quoting him a price several times higher than for any project commissioned there before. The job would require special tools, heavy equipment, and paid consultants, Fendley explained. But Christian merely nodded and asked how long it would take. Fendley didn’t rightly know—six months, at least. He wouldn’t be able to even consider such an undertaking, he added, until he knew it could be paid for. When Christian asked whether there was a banker in town he considered trustworthy, Fendley saw his chance to unload the strange man and sent him to look for Wyatt Martin, president of the Granite City Bank.
The tall and courtly Martin—the only man in Elberton besides Fendley known to have met R. C. Christian face-to-face—is now 78. “Fendley called me and said, ‘A kook over here wants some kind of crazy monument,'” Martin says. “But when this fella showed up he was wearing a very nice, expensive suit, which made me take him a little more seriously. And he was well-spoken, obviously an educated person.” Martin was naturally taken aback when the man told him straight out that R. C. Christian was a pseudonym. He added that his group had been planning this secretly for 20 years and wanted to remain anonymous forever. “And when he told me what it was he and this group wanted to do, I just about fell over,” Martin says. “I told him, ‘I believe you’d be just as well off to take the money and throw it out in the street into the gutters.’ He just sort of looked at me and shook his head, like he felt kinda sorry for me, and said, ‘You don’t understand.'”
Martin led Christian down the street to the town square, where the city had commissioned a towering Bicentennial Memorial Fountain, which included a ring of 13 granite panels, each roughly 2 by 3 feet, signifying the original colonies. “I told him that was about the biggest project ever undertaken around here, and it was nothing compared to what he was talking about,” Martin says. “That didn’t seem to bother him at all.” Promising to return on Monday, the man went off to charter a plane and spend the weekend scouting locations from the air. “By then I half believed him,” Martin says.
When Christian came back to the bank Monday, Martin explained that he could not proceed unless he could verify the man’s true identity and “get some assurance you can pay for this thing.” Eventually, the two negotiated an agreement: Christian would reveal his real name on the condition that Martin promise to serve as his sole intermediary, sign a confidentiality agreement pledging never to disclose the information to another living soul, and agree to destroy all documents and records related to the project when it was finished. “He said he was going to send the money from different banks across the country,” Martin says, “because he wanted to make sure it couldn’t be traced. He made it clear that he was very serious about secrecy.”
Before leaving town, Christian met again with Fendley and presented the contractor with a shoe box containing a wooden model of the monument he wanted, plus 10 or so pages of detailed specifications. Fendley accepted the model and instructions but remained skeptical until Martin phoned the following Friday to say he had just received a $10,000 deposit. After that, Fendley stopped questioning and started working. “My daddy loved a challenge,” says Fendley’s daughter, Melissa Fendley Caruso, “and he said this was the most challenging project in the history of Elbert County.”
Construction of the Guidestones got under way later that summer. Fendley’s company lovingly documented the progress of the work in hundreds of photographs. Jackhammers were used to gouge 114 feet into the rock at Pyramid Quarry, searching for hunks of granite big enough to yield the final stones. Fendley and his crew held their breath when the first 28-ton slab was lifted to the surface, wondering if their derricks would buckle under the weight. A special burner (essentially a narrowly focused rocket motor used to cut and finish large blocks of granite) was trucked to Elberton to clean and size the stones, and a pair of master stonecutters was hired to smooth them.
Fendley and Martin helped Christian find a suitable site for the Guidestones in Elbert County: a flat-topped hill rising above the pastures of the Double 7 Farms, with vistas in all directions. For $5,000, owner Wayne Mullinex signed over a 5-acre plot. In addition to the payment, Christian granted lifetime cattle-grazing rights to Mullinex and his children, and Mullinex’s construction company got to lay the foundation for the Guidestones.
With the purchase of the land, the Guidestones’ future was set. Christian said good-bye to Fendley at the granite company office, adding, “You’ll never see me again.” Christian then turned and walked out the door—without so much as a handshake.
From then on, Christian communicated solely through Martin, writing a few weeks later to ask that ownership of the land and monument be transferred to Elbert County, which still holds it. Christian reasoned that civic pride would protect it over time. “All of Mr. Christian’s correspondence came from different cities around the country,” Martin says. “He never sent anything from the same place twice.”

The astrological specifications for the Guidestones were so complex that Fendley had to retain the services of an astronomer from the University of Georgia to help implement the design. The four outer stones were to be oriented based on the limits of the sun’s yearly migration. The center column needed two precisely calibrated features: a hole through which the North Star would be visible at all times, and a slot that was to align with the position of the rising sun during the solstices and equinoxes. The principal component of the capstone was a 7\8-inch aperture through which a beam of sunlight would pass at noon each day, shining on the center stone to indicate the day of the year.
The main feature of the monument, though, would be the 10 dictates carved into both faces of the outer stones, in eight languages: English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, and Swahili. A mission statement of sorts (LET THESE BE GUIDESTONES TO AN AGE OF REASON) was also to be engraved on the sides of the capstone in Egyptian hieroglyphics, classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Babylonian cuneiform. The United Nations provided some of the translations (including those for the dead languages), which were stenciled onto the stones and etched with a sandblaster.
By early 1980, a bulldozer was scraping the Double 7 hilltop to bedrock, where five granite slabs serving as a foundation were laid out in a paddle-wheel design. A 100-foot-tall crane was used to lift the stones into place. Each of the outer rocks was 16 feet 4 inches high, 6 feet 6 inches wide, and 1 foot 7 inches thick. The center column was the same (except only half the width), and the capstone measured 9 feet 8 inches long, 6 feet 6 inches wide, and 1 foot 7 inches thick. Including the foundation stones, the monument’s total weight was almost 240,000 pounds. Covered with sheets of black plastic in preparation for an unveiling on the vernal equinox, the Guidestones towered over the cattle that continued to graze beneath it at the approach of winter’s end.
The monument ignited controversy before it was even finished. The first rumor began among members of the Elberton Granite Association, jealous of the attention being showered on one of their own: Fendley was behind the whole thing, they said, aided by his friend Martin, the banker. The gossip became so poisonous that the two men agreed to take a lie detector test at the Elberton Civic Center. The scandal withered when The Elberton Star reported that they had both passed convincingly, but the publicity brought a new wave of complaints. As word of what was being inscribed spread, Martin recalls, even people he considered friends asked him why he was doing the devil’s work. A local minister, James Travenstead, predicted that “occult groups” would flock to the Guidestones, warning that “someday a sacrifice will take place here.” Those inclined to agree were hardly discouraged by Charlie Clamp, the sandblaster charged with carving each of the 4,000-plus characters on the stones: During the hundreds of hours he spent etching the guides, Clamp said, he had been constantly distracted by “strange music and disjointed voices.”
The team that built the Guidestones didn’t know who was financing the project—just that it was the biggest monument in county history. Local banker Wyatt Martin inspects the English lettering with sandblaster Charlie Clamp before the 1980 unveiling.

The unveiling on March 22, 1980, was a community celebration. Congressmember Doug Barnard, whose district contained Elberton, addressed a crowd of 400 that flowed down the hillside and included television news crews from Atlanta. Soon Joe Fendley was the most famous Elbertonian since Daniel Tucker, the 18th-century minister memorialized in the folk song “Old Dan Tucker.” Bounded by the Savannah and Broad rivers but miles from the nearest interstate—”as rural as rural can be,” in the words of current Star publisher Gary Jones—Elberton was suddenly a tourist destination, with visitors from all over the world showing up to see the Guidestones. “We’d have people from Japan and China and India and everywhere wanting to go up and see the monument,” Martin says. And Fendley’s boast that he had “put Elberton on the map” was affirmed literally in spring 2005, when National Geographic Traveler listed the Guidestones as a feature in its Geotourism MapGuide to Appalachia.
But many who read what was written on the stones were unsettled. Guide number one was, of course, the real stopper: MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE. There were already 4.5 billion people on the planet, meaning eight out of nine had to go (today it would be closer to 12 out of 13). This instruction was echoed and expanded by tenet number two: GUIDE REPRODUCTION WISELY—IMPROVING FITNESS AND DIVERSITY. It didn’t take a great deal of imagination to draw an analogy to the practices of, among others, the Nazis. Guide number three instructed readers to unite humanity with a living new language. This sent a shiver up the spine of local ministers who knew that the Book of Revelations warned of a common tongue and a one-world government as the accomplishments of the Antichrist. Guide number four—RULE PASSION—FAITH—TRADITION—AND ALL THINGS WITH TEMPERED REASON—was similarly threatening to Christians committed to the primacy of faith over all. The last six guides were homiletic by comparison. PROTECT PEOPLE AND NATIONS WITH FAIR LAWS AND JUST COURTS. LET ALL NATIONS RULE INTERNALLY RESOLVING EXTERNAL DISPUTES IN A WORLD COURT. AVOID PETTY LAWS AND USELESS OFFICIALS. BALANCE PERSONAL RIGHTS WITH SOCIAL DUTIES. PRIZE TRUTH—BEAUTY—LOVE—SEEKING HARMONY WITH THE INFINITE. BE NOT A CANCER ON THE EARTH—LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE—LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE.
Even as locals debated the relative merits of these commandments, the dire predictions of Travenstead seemed to be coming true. Within a few months, a coven of witches from Atlanta adopted the Guidestones as their home away from home, making weekend pilgrimages to Elberton to stage various pagan rites (“dancing and chanting and all that kind of thing,” Martin says) and at least one warlock-witch marriage ceremony. No humans were sacrificed on the altar of the stones, but there are rumors that several chickens were beheaded. A 1981 article in the monthly magazine UFO Report cited Naunie Batchelder (identified in the story as “a noted Atlanta psychic”) as predicting that the true purpose of the guides would be revealed “within the next 30 years.” Viewed from directly overhead, the Guidestones formed an X, the piece in UFO Report observed, making for a perfect landing site.
Visitors kept coming, but after several failed investigations into the identity of R. C. Christian, the media lost interest. Curiosity flared again briefly in 1993, when Yoko Ono contributed a track called “Georgia Stone” to a tribute album for avant-garde composer John Cage, with Ono chanting the 10th and final guide nearly verbatim: “Be not a cancer on Earth—leave room for nature—leave room for nature.” A decade later, however, when comedienne Roseanne Barr tried to work a bit on the Guidestones into her comeback tour, nobody seemed to care.
Christian kept in touch with Martin, writing the banker so regularly that they became pen pals. Occasionally, Christian would call from a pay phone at the Atlanta airport to say he was in the area, and the two would rendezvous for dinner in the college town of Athens, a 40-mile drive west of Elberton. By this time, Martin no longer questioned Christian’s secrecy. The older man had successfully deflected Martin’s curiosity when the two first met, by quoting Henry James’ observations of Stonehenge: “You may put a hundred questions to these rough-hewn giants as they bend in grim contemplation of their fallen companions, but your curiosity falls dead in the vast sunny stillness that enshrouds them.” Christian “never would tell me a thing about this group he belonged to,” Martin says. The banker received his last letter from Christian right around the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and assumes the man—who would have been in his mid-eighties—has since passed away.

The mysterious story of R. C. Christian and the absence of information about the true meaning of the Guidestones was bound to become an irresistible draw for conspiracy theorists and “investigators” of all kinds. Not surprisingly, three decades later there is no shortage of observers rushing to fill the void with all sorts of explanations.
Among them is an activist named Mark Dice, author of a book called The Resistance Manifesto. In 2005, Dice (who was using a pseudonym of his own—”John Conner”—appropriated from the Terminator franchise’s main character) began to demand that the Guidestones be “smashed into a million pieces.” He claims that the monument has “a deep Satanic origin,” a stance that has earned him plenty of coverage, both in print and on the Web. According to Dice, Christian was a high-ranking member of “a Luciferian secret society” at the forefront of the New World Order. “The elite are planning to develop successful life-extension technology in the next few decades that will nearly stop the aging process,” Dice says, “and they fear that with the current population of Earth so high, the masses will be using resources that the elite want for themselves. The Guidestones are the New World Order’s Ten Commandments. They’re also a way for the elite to get a laugh at the expense of the uninformed masses, as their agenda stands as clear as day and the zombies don’t even notice it.”
Ironically, Dice’s message has mainly produced greater publicity for the Guidestones. This, in turn, has brought fresh visitors to the monument and made Elbert County officials even less inclined to remove the area’s only major tourist attraction.
Phyllis Brooks, who runs the Elbert County Chamber of Commerce, pronounced herself aghast last November when the Guidestones were attacked by vandals for the first time ever. While Dice denies any involvement in the assault, he seems to have inspired it: Spray-painted on the stones were messages like “Jesus will beat u satanist” and “No one world government.” Other defacements asserted that the Council on Foreign Relations is “ran by the devil,” that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job, and that President Obama is a Muslim. The vandals also splashed the Guidestones with polyurethane, which is much more difficult to remove than paint. Despite the graffiti’s alignment with his views, Dice says he disapproves of the acts. “A lot of people were glad such a thing happened and saw it as standing up against the New World Order,” Dice says, “while others who are unhappy with the stones saw the actions as counterproductive and inappropriate.”
Martin winces every time he hears Dice’s “Luciferian secret society” take on the Guidestones. But while he disagrees, he also admits that he doesn’t know for sure. “All I can tell you is that Mr. Christian always seemed a very decent and sincere fella to me.”

Dice, of course, is far from the only person with a theory about the Guidestones. Jay Weidner, a former Seattle radio commentator turned erudite conspiracy hunter, has heavily invested time and energy into one of the most popular hypotheses. He argues that Christian and his associates were Rosicrucians, followers of the Order of the Rosy Cross, a secret society of mystics that originated in late medieval Germany and claim understanding of esoteric truths about nature, the universe, and the spiritual realm that have been concealed from ordinary people. Weidner considers the name R. C. Christian an homage to the legendary 14th-century founder of the Rosicrucians, a man first identified as Frater C.R.C. and later as Christian Rosenkreuz. Secrecy, Weidner notes, has been a hallmark of the Rosicrucians, a group that announced itself to the world in the early 17th century with a pair of anonymous manifestos that created a huge stir across Europe, despite the fact that no one was ever able to identify a single member. While the guides on the Georgia stones fly in the face of orthodox Christian eschatology, they conform quite well to the tenets of Rosicrucianism, which stress reason and endorse a harmonic relationship with nature.
Weidner also has a theory about the purpose of the Guidestones. An authority on the hermetic and alchemical traditions that spawned the Rosicrucians, he believes that for generations the group has been passing down knowledge of a solar cycle that climaxes every 13,000 years. During this culmination, outsize coronal mass ejections are supposed to devastate Earth. Meanwhile, the shadowy organization behind the Guidestones is now orchestrating a “planetary chaos,” Weidner believes, that began with the recent collapse of the US financial system and will result eventually in major disruptions of oil and food supplies, mass riots, and ethnic wars worldwide, all leading up to the Big Event on December 21, 2012. “They want to get the population down,” Weidner says, “and this is what they think will do it. The Guidestones are there to instruct the survivors.”
On hearing Weidner’s ideas, Martin shakes his head and says it’s “the sort of thing that makes me want to tell people everything I know.” Martin has long since retired from banking and no longer lives in Elberton, yet he’s still the Guidestones’ official—and only—secret-keeper. “But I can’t tell,” the old man quickly adds. “I made a promise.” Martin also made a promise to destroy all the records of his dealings with Christian, though he hasn’t kept that one—at least not yet. In the back of his garage is a large plastic bin (actually, the hard-sided case of an IBM computer he bought back in 1983) stuffed with every document connected to the Guidestones that ever came into his possession, including the letters from Christian.
For years Martin thought he might write a book, but now he knows he probably won’t. What he also won’t do is allow me to look through the papers. When I ask whether he’s prepared to take what he knows to his grave, Martin replies that Christian would want him to do just that: “All along, he said that who he was and where he came from had to be kept a secret. He said mysteries work that way. If you want to keep people interested, you can let them know only so much.” The rest is enshrouded in the vast sunny stillness.
Bravo por el Papa Francisco!!!!!! DIARIO DE BITÁCORA
ESTE MENSAJE ESTÁ DIRIGIDO A CREYENTES Y NO CREYENTES. SE NECESITAN SANTOS SIN SOTANA El Papa Francisco dijo: “Piensen en una madre soltera que va a la Iglesia o a la parroquia, y le dice al secretario: QUIERO BAUTIZAR A MI HIJO.
y el que le atiende le dice: No, no se puede, porque Ud. no se ha casado…
Tengamos en cuenta que esta madre tuvo el valor para continuar con un embarazo. Y con qué se encuentra? Con una puerta cerrada!
Y así, si seguimos este camino y con esta actitud, no estamos haciendo bien a la gente, al Pueblo de Dios.
Jesús creó los siete sacramentos. Y con este tipo de actitud creamos un octavo: ¡el sacramento de la aduana pastoral!
QUIEN SE ACERCA A LA IGLESIA DEBE ENCONTRARPUERTAS ABIERTAS Y NO FISCALES DE LA FE”.
El papa Francisco acaba de decir:
“Necesitamos santos sin velo, sin sotana. Necesitamos santos de jeans y zapatillas.
Necesitamos santos que vayan al cine, escuchen musica y paseen con sus amigos.
Necesitamos santos que coloquen a Dios en primer lugar y que sobresalgan en la Universidad.
Necesitamos santos que busquen tiempo para rezar cada dia y que sepan enamorarse en la pureza y castidad, o que consagren su castidad.
Necesitamos santos modernos, santos del siglo XXI con una espiritualidad insertada en nuestro tiempo.
Necesitamos santos comprometidos con los pobres y los necesarios cambios sociales.
Necesitamos santos que vivan en el mundo, se santifiquen en el mundo y que no tengan miedo de vivir en el mundo.
Necesitamos santos que tomen Coca Cola y coman hot-dogs, que sean internautas, que escuchen iPod.
Necesitamos santos que amen la Eucaristia y que no tengan vergüenza de tomar una cerveza o comer pizza el fin de semana con los amigos.
Necesitamos santos a los que les guste el cine, el teatro, la musica, la danza, el deporte.
Necesitamos santos sociables, abiertos, normales, amigos, alegres, compañeros.
Necesitamos santos que esten en el mundo y que sepan saborear las cosas puras y buenas del mundo, pero sin ser mundanos”.
Esos tenemos que ser nosotros!!!
Our never ending Obama nightmare. By Jeff Crouere September 16, 2013 12:20
It has been a long five years, our Obama nightmare. Sadly, there are no signs that things will improve anytime soon. Of course we know about the damage the President has done to our economy, by massively increasing the debt, raising taxes and growing government. The results have been catastrophic to say the least: a national debt of $17 trillion and a labor force participation rate at the lowest level since 1978. Last month, an amazing 300,000 people left the workforce altogether, joining the 90 million Americans who have checked out of our economy. Inevitably, there will be more increases in food stamp usage and other forms of government assistance, as more Americans will be unable to provide for their needs on their own.
Along with the tragic economic consequences of Obama’s policies, Americans are now witnessing the dangerous effects of a left wing, inexperienced community organizer serving as Commander in Chief.
In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, an ally of America, was abandoned by President Obama, even though he kept the peace for 30 years. The result of our abandonment was that the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, assumed power and shredded the country’s constitution. The Egyptian military with the support of millions of Egyptians have reasserted power, but no thanks to the Obama administration, who remained on the sidelines.
In 2011, the President ordered the U.S. to support a NATO military mission to topple the dictator Gaddafi. The result is that the country is in utter chaos, ruled by tribes and lawlessness. Americans were horrified when our consulate was attacked in Benghazi by terrorists. After lying to the American people for weeks, the Obama administration finally admitted it was a terrorist attack. Incredibly, after one year, there have been no arrests and no justice for the families of the four brave victims. Witnesses to the attack have been prevented from testifying to Congress about the events of that fateful night. It is obvious that the administration is engaged in a rather unseemly cover-up of what really happened on September 11, 2012.
In Syria, the actions of the President and his team have bordered on total incompetence. Almost every wrong step has been made. Today, we are left with a situation where the U.S. has limited influence, while the power of our adversary Russia has increased tremendously.
More and more Americans are realizing that this President is not qualified to lead the nation. His poll numbers have been dropping rather dramatically. A new Fox News poll has the President’s approval rating at only 40%, the lowest of his presidency. Other poll results are equally abysmal. According to CNN, only 40% approve of his handling of foreign policy, another all-time low. Even worse, only 29% in the CNN poll approve of his handling of the Syrian crisis.
On the issue of Syria, Obama has been clearly out maneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who made his case directly to the American people this week with a stunning editorial in the New York Times.
Putin is obviously feeling very confident as Obama’s Syrian policy has been both unpopular and ever changing. After promising to launch an “unbelievably small” attack on Syria, Obama is now backtracking and giving peace a chance, while retaining the right to strike at a later time. He is left with few options but to accept Putin’s leadership on the issue.
The Russians are now in the forefront, taking advantage of Secretary of State John Kerry’s misstep and leading an effort to remove the chemical weapons from Syria. In all of this confusion, Syrian dictator Bashar Assad is now feeling more confident and demanding that the U.S. stop arming the rebels before he relinquishes his chemical weapons.
The international community wants to avoid a U.S. attack on Syria. In this country, the American people are overwhelmingly opposed to a military strike, and Congress is very reluctant to give the President such authorization. Obama might become the first President in U.S. history to be denied the right to use military force.
The President’s policy is a total disaster. The civil war rages on, the Russians are in control and the dictator is still in power. Our “moderate” rebels have been exposed as cannibals, barbarians and terrorists linked to Al Qaeda.
To push his policy of a limited military strike, the President conducted six interviews on the network news programs, but it was no avail. He gave a prime time address to the American people to no avail. Americans are no longer listening to his propaganda, he is being ignored. In the meantime, Putin made more of an impact with his editorial.
It is a sad day in this country when the former leader of the KGB is more persuasive than our own President.
Bill Cosby: Black Men Need to Raise Their Kids, Has a Message For ‘No-Groes’ By Clash Daily / 16 September 2013 / 5 Comments CNN anchor Don Lemon has, of late, turned the focus of his frequent conversations on race to the idea of personal responsibility in the African American community. On Saturday night’s edition of CNN Newsroom, Lemon continued that controversial trend with comic legend Bill Cosby, who has also felt the heat of controversy on the subject. Cosby talked to Lemon about young black men raising their kids, over-medication of juvenile inmates, and may have even coined a new word: “No-groes.” For the past few months, Don Lemon has courted controversy with several segments pegged to his general agreement with comments by Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly, aimed at solving problems within the black community. Legendary comic actor Bill Cosby has also stirred controversy by airing grievances against his community, but neither Lemon nor Cosby have backed away from their criticisms. In Saturday night’s interview, Lemon asked Cosby to reflect on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, and what kind of African American leaders are needed now. “I think it has to come from the universities,” Mr. Cosby began. ” I think, women, strongly because when you see 70%, in research, that says they are the leaders of the household, what we need is for people to realize I want to raise my kid. I want to go back and get my three kids. I want to take on that responsibility. I want to love my children.” He added that one of the sights he’d like to see more of is what he saw at the recent Essence Festival, “walking around to see, yeah, to see a black male with his child on the shoulders and holding.” He also encouraged young people who might not be able to go to a prestigious college to “go to community college. Okay, you backed up and didn’t do well. You quit school but now you find you need that high school credential. Go to the community college.” Cosby related the idea of personal responsibility to his own experience, adding that “At age 19 and a half, I knew I didn’t want to do certain things. It is not what they weren’t doing to me, it’s what I wasn’t doing. It’s a very simple thing.” http://clashdaily.com/2013/09/bill-cosby-black-men-need-raise-kids-message-groes/
ALBERTO PEREZ: Chiítas y Sunis la misma mie…cosa, el mismo objetivo.
La lucha intestina en el medio oriente es en realidad entre los elementos radicales sunitas y chiítas que quieren establecer un califato en el mundo. Los chiítas quieren tener a Irán como el ancla del califato, y los sunitas tienen la esperanza de tener su base en un Egipto controlado por la Hermandad Musulmana..
Pero lo que es el objetivo común es un Califato Mundial y está establecido desde la muerte de Mahoma, para la difusión y expansión del Islam en todo el mundo.
La diferencia entre chiítas y sunis tiene su origen en lo que sucedió en el primer califato.
Según el pensamiento de los chiítas, el propio Mahoma había designado un sucesor antes de morir. Este sucesor era su yerno Ali ibn Abi Talib, casado con su hija Fátima.
Ali y sus sucesores serían, pues, para los chiitas los legítimos califas. Ali fue elegido califa, pero tras su elección se desató una Al-Fitna al-Kubra o guerra civil que dio lugar a la división de la umma en dos bloques: los partidarios de Ali, en adelante llamados chiítas; los partidarios de Muawiya, su oponente y primer califa omeya, que constituirían la mayoría y con el tiempo serían llamados suníes.
Pero la causa común que los ha unido en la historia una vez que tienen una pausa en sus guerras, es el odio hacia el occidente.
Por esto los chiítas han ganado terreno con la débil política de Obama en Siria.
Irán a través de Rusia, ha logrado que los chiítas se mantengan en el gobierno con la anuencia del presidente Assad. Esto es un paso hacia adelante en el califato como base en Irán, con sus armas nucleares con la que piensa derrotar a Israel y al occidente.
Con el nuevo Califato triunfante ante el gran Satán se unirían todos las fracciones.
Los hermanos musulmanes que están en la oposición en Siria, son la misma cosa el mismo objetivo, su llamamiento invoca la necesidad de trabajar en la creación de un estado islámico mundial.
Su guía Supremo Mohammed Badie pronunció un discurso recordando a sus fieles la agenda esbozada por el fundador de la Hermandad, Hassán al-Banna: “Hay que empezar por la reforma de lo individual y luego reformar familia y sociedad, luego el gobierno; después el califato de orientación acertada, luego instruir al mundo; instruir en cuanto a orientación, conocimientos, verdad y justicia”.
Pero nos encontramos que nuestro gobierno a través del responsable de Inteligencia (¿¿¿) Nacional , James Clapper (se debía llamar mejor Crapper), llama a la Hermandad “un grupo muy heterogéneo, mayoritariamente secular, que ha renunciado a la violencia” en una vista legislativa celebrada en febrero.
La declaración conjunta de chiítas y sunis en una de sus alianzas contra el enemigo occidental, es la esencia de lo que podemos esperar en nuestras futuras relaciones con el Islam:
“Alá es nuestro objetivo, el Corán nuestra Constitución, el profeta nuestro líder, la yihad nuestra vía, y la muerte al servicio de Alá el más codiciado de nuestros deseos”.
Sí señor , se nota, son muy seculares y han renunciado a la violencia.
Nos han tocados vivir tiempos extraños y oír cosas extrañas..
