REAL TECHNOLOGY WELL BEYOND WHAT WE TELL THE PUBLIC : Veterans Today - News for U.S. Military Veterans Jobs, VA Benefits, Home Loans, Hospitals & Administration

By Gordon Duff/STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor (veteranstoday.com)
I have worked in electronics, both communications and security systems for decades. The industry is full of magic, satellites that can read license plates, not just from space but inside parking garages and tell you the sex of the baby you may not know you are carrying yet. Industry people, us and terrorists, all know what exists and where it is. You only have to track the contracts and installations. It is all public information, public information the public knows nothing of. Terrorists know, believe that.
What can we do? One of the companies I work with is RoamZone. www.roamzonesecuritysystems.com Their equipment networks hyper-spatial cameras to allow biometric tagging and worldwide shared databases. What does this mean? It means that if you still have the same body, face, smell, anything either with a common facial pattern, body type or molecular signature, you can be tracked across the planet for life. This technology is cheap and common. You can be tracked by the odor of your belt or shoes alone, an odor seen as molecules, not smelled, seen at great distance.
The process of "tagging" puts an identity tied to, not only your face, but your smell, much as with a blood hound. You can be tagged, not getting on a plane, but anywhere in between, the train, entering an airport or even driving into a country with "pass and wave" customs like inside the EU.
Security folks can tell if someone who has been seen from a kilometer away in a village in Afghanistan shows up at an airport in Kansas City.
He can have plastic surgery but he will have to get an entirely different body. His molecular signature will be, not only on file, but shared thru the system worldwide in seconds.

There is more. To read the rest of the article, click the title...

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death (In it's entirety)
Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained — we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable — and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

(ed-May it be known that true peace only comes from surrendering our will to that of Jesus as revealed in holy scripture. He said to love our enemies. Do good to them that despitefully use us. Where the Spirit of the lord is , there is liberty.)

It's not Christmas without Christ!

Enough of this "x-mas" junk! Christmas means NOTHING without CHRIST! If you don't accept Jesus as THE CHRIST...stop celebrating OUR holiday! "Happy Holidays" is only meaningful within the context of Christmas...a purely Christian holiday! I can accept "happy holidays" because, to me, it's automatically filtered through a Christian mindset, and means Happy Christmas!

Matt. 1:
18. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
20. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23. Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Many argue that Jesus is not God, but merely the Son of God, a second (inferior) person of the godhead.

John 3:16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

But in order to understand John 3:16, you must also read 1 John 3:16...
16. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

When was the beginning of Sonship? Did it start on that 1st Christmas day...whatever day and month it came? Or did it really start...in the beginning?

Jesus tells us a secret in Rev. 3:14. He slides it in unobtrusively, without great fanfare, but an absolute TRUTH about his true identity, that many deny to there own hurt.

...these things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

John tried to make it clear.
John 1:
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2. The same was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9. That was the true Light, ( ed.-read the account of the 1st day of creation...it was the beginning of Sonship) which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (ed.- the sun was created on the 4th day)
10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

The Light created on day 1 was the pre-incarnate Jesus, only He was revealed as Jehovah to Israel. Reading about His second coming in Zachariah, we find He is consistantly referred to as the LORD, all caps, which identifies Him as Jehovah by the KJV translators.

When we sing Christmas carols, we are singing about the Almighty (Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty) God, creator of heaven and earth (re-read John 1:3 above).

Also read Col. 1:
16. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Which answers the question: Is Jesus in the Godhead, or is the Godhead in Jesus?

Colossians 2:
8. Beware lest any man spoil ( think: rotted meat) you through philosophy ( humanistic reasoning) and vain (empty) deceit (lies), after the tradition of men (traditions added to scripture, not taught by Jesus or the apostles... like the doctrine of the trinity), after the rudiments ( simplest things ) of the world, and not after Christ.
9. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

This Christmas rejoice with resounding joy, that the creator God of all creation, who loves you enough to personally redeem you Himself, came born of a virgin (who then had other children with Joseph) for the sole purpose of offering Himself as a sacrifice to pay for your sin!

Isaiah 9:6-7 says it best...
6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Thank God, and Merry Christmas!

The 12 days of Christimas

This was just too cute not to share. It is the season!

EU: Let's ensure division of Jerusalem

This is an artist's impression of the future (third)
Jewish temple. Notice that in this position it is
in perfect alignment with the eastern gate.
(the above from: endtimepilgrim.org)

How might there come to be a rebuilding of the Jewish Temple? Maybe, for the sake of "peace" since Jerusalem will be the capital of two states...two temples should be accommodated. We know the temple will be rebuilt:

Revelation 11:
1. And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

From jnewswqire.com:
According to reports running in the Israeli press Tuesday and Wednesday, a Swedish-drafted statement will be read out on December 7 after approval by the EU Commission. It will be the "first official EU articulation of a solution" for the issue of Jerusalem in the Middle East peace process.

Ha'aretz reported that the draft "refers directly to the situation in East Jerusalem, calling on 'all parties to refrain from provocative actions' and stating the EU Council 'has never recognized the annexation of East Jerusalem. If there is to be a genuine peace, a way must be found to resolve the status of Jerusalem as capital of two states. The Council calls for the reopening of Palestinian institutions in Jerusalem in accordance with the road map. It also calls on the Israeli government to cease all discriminatory treatment of Palestinians in East Jerusalem.'"
