America, only a memory

Our Lost America - A Collection Of Quotes from Binjamin Herzel 6-29-6

Dear Mr. Rense,

With great sorrow, at the age of 82, I have seen our America descend spiritually, socially and economically into nothing - a nation now despised worldwide. As a Jew who is familiar with The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview (1), and The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion (2), I was hoping our Jewish community would divorce itself from the Zionists who highjacked our religion years ago and uses it as a shield to operate behind. Unfortunately, now it's too late, we are heading towards WW3 and probable annihilation of our 'civilization.'

I am not very proficient at writing, so I am enclosing a small collection of quotes, to illustrate to the younger generation what a beautiful America we used to have.

Very respectfully,

Binjamin Herzel

Albert Einstein
The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses.

John F. Hylan
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as 'international bankers.' This little coterie... run our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen...[and] seizes...our executive officers... legislative bodies... schools... courts... newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.

John Adams
Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear.

American Mercury Magazine
The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Zionism and Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of World Government.

Justice Hugo L. Black
The Press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of the government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people.

Justice Felix Frankfurter
The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes

James Madison
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.

Maxwell Anderson
When a government takes over a people's economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.

Donald Alexander
We now have so many regulations that everyone is guilty of some violation.

Alan Barth
The notion that the church, the press, and the universities should serve the state is essentially a Communist notion. In a free society these institutions must be wholly free ­ which is to say that their function is to serve as checks upon the state.

Gaius Julius Caesar
Beware of the leader, who strikes the war drum in order to transfer the citizens into patriotic glow, patriotism is indeed a double-sided sword. It makes the blood so boldly, like it constricts the intellect. And if the striking of the war drum reached a febrile height and the blood is cooking and hating, and the intellect is dismissed, the leader doesn't need to reject the citizens rights. The citizens, caught by anxiety and blinded through patriotism, will subordinate all their rights to the leader and this even with happy courage. Why do I know that? I know it, because this is, what I did. And I am Gajus Julius Cäsar.

Sir Winston Churchill
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

Napoleon Bonaparte
When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.

Louis Freeh
Ask the American public if they want an FBI wiretap and they'll say, "no." If you ask them do they want a feature on their phone that helps the FBI find their missing child they'll say, "Yes."

Henry Brooks Adams
Politics, as a practise, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.

H. L. Birum, Sr.
The Federal Reserve Bank is nothing but a banking fraud and an unlawful crime against civilization. Why? Because they "create" the money made out of nothing, and our Uncle Sap Government issues their "Federal Reserve Notes" and stamps our Government approval with NO obligation whatever from these Federal Reserve Banks, Individual Banks or National Banks, etc.

Josh Billings
The trouble with most folks isn't so much their ignorance, as knowing so many things that ain't so.

Henry Ford
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

Thomas Jefferson
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

Grace Commission
100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt ... all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.

William Lyon Mackenzie King
Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.

Samuel Adams
A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.... While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.... If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.

Alan Greenspan
In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. ... This is the shabby secret of the welfare sitarists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the sitarists' antagonism toward the gold standard.

Lyn Nofziger
These things I believe: That government should butt out. That freedom is our most precious commodity and if we are not eternally vigilant, government will take it all away. That individual freedom demands individual responsibility. That government is not a necessary good but an unavoidable evil. That the executive branch has grown too strong, the judicial branch too arrogant and the legislative branch too stupid. That political parties have become close to meaningless. That government should work to insure the rights of the individual, not plot to take them away. That government should provide for the national defense and work to insure domestic tranquillity. That foreign trade should be fair rather than free. That America should be wary of foreign entanglements. That the tree of liberty needs to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. That guns do more than protect us from criminals; more importantly, they protect us from the ongoing threat of government. That states are the bulwark of our freedom. That states should have the right to secede from the Union. That once a year we should hang someone in government as an example to his fellows.

Major L. L. B. Angus
The modern Banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and unmint the modern ledger-entry currency.

Justice Louis D. Brandeis
Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law breaker, it breeds contempt for the law.

Charles-Louis De Secondat
The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded.

Robert A. Heinlein
In a society in which it is a moral offense to be different from your neighbor your only escape is to never let them find out.

Justice Louis D. Brandeis
The government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that the end justifies the means -- to declare that the government may commit crimes -- would bring terrible retribution.

John Adams
Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.

Justice Louis D. Brandeis
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

Lyn Nofziger
One of the things that bothers me most is the growing belief in the country that security is more important than freedom. It ain't.

Frank Dane
Get all the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything.

Samuel Adams
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!

Thomas Jefferson
Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

W. Lance Bennett
Perhaps the most obvious political effect of controlled news is the advantage it gives powerful people in getting their issues on the political agenda and defining those issues in ways likely to influence their resolution.

Vance Packard
The most common characteristic of all police states is intimidation by surveillance. Citizens know they are being watched and overheard. Their mail is being examined. Their homes can be invaded.

Maxwell Anderson
When a government takes over a people's economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.

Kort E. Patterson
According to Gestapo records they had little need to engage in direct spying on the citizens since the citizens themselves were more than willing to do their spying for the government.

Clint Eastwood
At Waco, was there really an urgency to get those people out of the compound at that particular time? Was the press going to make it look heroic for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms? At Ruby Ridge, there was one guy in a cabin at the top of the mountain. Was it necessary for federal agents to go up there and shoot a 14-year-old in the back and shoot a woman with a child in her arms? What kind of mentality does that?

A socialist government expands it's power of control over the masses by not rendering swift justice against criminals, but under the guise of compassion releases them and takes away the freedom of everyone else for their protection. It preverts the truth, thus destroying the mind and soul of it's people so that they will believe a lie and reject the truth.

The most important article you'll ever read


By Andrew C. WallaceAugust 13, 2008NewsWithViews.com
“Declaration of the People’s Sovereignty, and Intent to Wrest Unlawful Control of the Government of the United States of America from Traitors.
This Proclamation outlines the Brutal Treason being visited upon us by Traitors in government and corporations including our sure and certain reactions to it. There is a well developed and generalized loathing for most current and recent leaders and candidates of Democrat and Republican parties. Only media cover-ups of all but the most heinous acts by illegals such as multiple murders and total financial destruction has prevented this from quickly becoming a large scale focused retaliation by the people on government and corporate officials. But the retaliation has only been delayed. We have no desire to replace our constitutionally defined government. Our unyielding objective, as long as we have life and sufficient sovereignty is to lawfully expel the traitors who have taken control of our Republic. This usurpation was accomplished by fraud, deceit, fear, bribes, intimidation, incarceration, power, subterfuge and most importantly by ownership and control of the mainstream propaganda media, which made our citizens uninformed victims. These traitors using government and corporate power have stolen the financial resources of this country, and the value of our currency, resulting in our loss of everything. Pensions, savings, investments, standard of living, personal security and freedom are being stolen so quickly (50% during this administration) that what remains is but a rapidly fading illusion. The stated goal of these Communist and Fascist traitors, yes these are the correct words, is to reduce American citizens to poverty and slavery, forcing them to accept the new North American Union, which is in process, to replace the United States of America, Canada and Mexico to be ruled by a Corporate One World Order. Social Security, Medicare, Veterans and other benefits will not survive, leaving most Elderly to die homeless, hungry and in pain with value of any personal financial assets stolen.
All of this reprehensible treason, and more has been accomplished by the “Chain of Command for Treason”, a criminal Cabal consisting of the wealthy Power Elites and their tax free Foundations who direct the Corporations that control the Traitors in our government. Leaders of the Chain of Command for Treason, their forbearers and progeny do not now, nor have they ever had any loyalty to America or respect for its citizens. First they steal from us, or inherit their stolen wealth, then they think this makes them superior to honest hardworking people whose children are fighting and dying to defend them from terrorists
In a clear act of greed and power driven treason, officials have approved so called Free Trade deals such as NAFTA which are really Slave Trade deals because they allow corporations to move our manufacturing capability to other countries for exploitation of foreign workers while firing American workers. This also causes unemployment in the other countries, and only the corporations benefit in this country.
Traitors in government refuse to obey our constitution and are directly responsible, for allowing Millions of Americans to be either murdered, killed, raped, robbed or molested by illegal alien invaders so corporations could exploit them for cheap wages. Our government also allows corporations to hire foreign born workers in addition to illegals, using ten different visa programs to replace Americans. Corporate profits are increased even more by forcing American taxpayers to pay for medical care, education, and other benefits for illegals and foreign born. This process is reducing the wages of all Americans toward the exploitative low level of the third world for benefit of corporations.
We know of only two reasons for politicians to make it illegal for us to develop our more than ample energy reserves. The first is to quickly reduce us to poverty and slave status. The second is to conserve the energy for the future profit of the CCT and the North American Union, ruled by a corporate One World Order. Conservation and Global Warming has nothing to do with it.
The Chain of Command for Treason as a criminal Cabal, controls and directs the leaders of both Democrat and Republican parties. Both political campaigns are part of a massive fraud used to convince Americans that they control the government, as they should, but do not, in fact political leaders must be laughing at voters for being dupes and fools. Party Leaders and their presidential candidates Obama and McCain have stated repeatedly on national TV their clear intent to support the treason of free trade (slave trade), socialism (slavery), surrender of sovereignty (by treaties), impoverishment of the people (by theft), amnesty for illegals and unlimited immigration, thereby hastening destruction of this country. Both candidates and party leaders know that their other promises are impossible lies and that the people would object if they knew their true intentions, but both candidates don’t give a damn because they must obey the orders of their corporate masters in the Chain of Command for Treason..
Anyone who actively supports either Democrat or Republican parties should go to the backyard and practice braying like an uninformed jackass because they are one. We must only vote for individuals, regardless of party, who we have determined by personal encounters to be Patriots who will represent us, and not the Chain of Command for Treason..
Our Constitution requires government to defend the people from invasion and other threats. The ongoing refusal by government officials to either protect the people as guaranteed by the Constitution or to support and encourage the people to protect themselves is a most serious and unambiguous act of treason. Our only viable solution, short of civil war, is to remove and prosecute government officials for treason using the rule of law. It is common knowledge that many Americans believe that a majority of government officials have betrayed this country and refuse to protect citizens, but actively use their power in support of illegal invaders and other criminals, thus giving citizens the right under the Constitution and Declaration of Independence to take autonomous action.
Police are only the Cleanup Crew for most crime, and totally inadequate for the combat required to take back our sanctuary cities and protect our borders. Citizens have been responsible for the primary protection of themselves and families since before the founding of this Republic. The Chain of Command for Treason continues to do everything possible to disarm citizens because they fear the people’s certain wrath when most Americans feel the terrible pain caused by treason. People who refuse to accept this reality are an ignorant, naïve, and parasitic force in our society who also fail to accept the failure of Fascism, Communism, Marxism and all forms of Socialism.
An effective majority of officials in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government are demonstrated traitors, or self serving cowards obedient to the Chain of Command for Treason. If we had courageous government officials loyal to the United States of America these traitors would have been investigated, prosecuted, and convicted for their horrific crimes, with many of them being executed for treason. These traitors have no honor, they lie, cheat and steal with such impunity and frequency as to make organized crime look like a bunch of saints.
Our objective is to remove the Traitorous Usurpers from our government using the rule of law, assuming the traitors are smart enough to understand that if they resist our lawful actions with unlawful power that they will be going to a gunfight with a knife.
We insist that our Constitution is the Supreme law of the land and must be interpreted in accordance with its Intent and Written Meaning, nothing else. We plan to impeach every judge, starting with Supreme Court Justices who refuse to obey our Constitution based upon its Intent and Meaning. Judges are neither Gods nor Legislators.
The Chain of Command for Treason must realize that their time is rapidly running out because every day increases the pain to a point that will energize Americans to take positive action regardless of media propaganda. In spite of the criminal cabal’s perfidy we must do everything possible to defeat the Chain of Command for Treason with the rule of law before the majority of clueless American victims respond to the pain and take terrible, uncontrolled and justified vengeance on the criminals resulting in Anarchy and a Pyrrhic victory. People who have had everything stolen from them, and have nothing more to lose, will respond with an unquenchable fury.
We will remove traitors from positions in government using the rule of law, if we have sovereignty. We will then proceed properly against all members of the Chain of Command for Treason and their fellow travelers, they can run, but they cannot hide. Most government employees are loyal Americans who will assist us in investigating, prosecuting, convicting, incarcerating, litigating and confiscating their blood money, every last depreciated penny of it going back to formation of the private Federal Reserve Bank.
The American people, using the Rule of Law and their Sovereignty, will take the following actions, among others.
* Force traitors out of government.* Release political prisoners such as Ramos and Compean.* Stop illegal invaders from entering our country.* Use combat troops to deport illegals from sanctuary cities.* Prosecute sanctuary city officials and employers of illegals.* Stop, and revoke birth citizenship for children of illegals.* Mandate English as the only official language.* Deny Social Security and other benefits to illegals.* Institute a minimum ten year moratorium on all immigration.* Stop all visa work programs.* Stop all subsidized student visas.* Stop all so called Free Trade(Slave Trade) deals that cause loss of American jobs, manufacturing capability, or technology.* Terminate all treaties and agreements that reduce our sovereignty. * Terminate the private Federal Reserve Bank.* Return to a constitutional currency with real value.* Use Tariffs and Duties for income and to protect American workers and industries.* Require visas for all people entering our country.* Terminate dual citizenship.* Modify legal structure of corporations and foundations so they no longer have unique characteristics allowing them to be used to the detriment of employees, stockholders, customers and our country.* Reduce federal government activities to comply with specified Constitutional powers only.
We solemnly promise those Heroes who sacrificed and died to defend this great Republic that it will not perish. We will do our duty as law abiding citizens and when we meet them there will be no need to offer excuses for our failure.
Words used herein were selected for precision of meaning. Sensibilities of the ignorant, naïve, and political party dupes may be disturbed by the accurate use of words like treason, murder, rape, robbery, molestation, et al to describe results of actions taken by their revered government and corporate leaders who have brain washed them. The Constitutional definition of treason is correctly applied to those who took an oath to serve the people and betrayed them with a level of corruption and death, so heinous and all encompassing as to be unprecedented in history. Readers are invited, indeed challenged to question any written word or statement used in this document. People who rely on the mainstream media for information are Dupes, and will be as uninformed as a box of rocks.

Americans must choose between Patriotism or Slavery, there are no other choices. The most expeditious and effective means for our victory is to take control of Congress away from the traitors while not ignoring local politics. You may do your part by clicking this link that will Inform, Motivate, Direct and give you the Tools to face down your congressional politicians and take back your freedom.
James 4:17 Therefor to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

The intent of this proclamation is to present a definitive outline of the all powerful treason controlling this country and offer viable solutions using the Rule of Law to defeat the traitors. If we fail, Americans will ultimately feel the pain of treason resulting in revolt, anarchy and a pyrrhic victory for the people.
There are no questions regarding this Proclamation that can’t be answered by reading any of the numerous in depth articles written by signers of this Declaration or those recommended in the preceding link. As signers of this document we are promising our continuing dedication toward the removal of traitors and tyranny from our government and Republic using the Rule of Law, as long as we have Sovereignty.

What ever, it's global warming

I, having as much knowledge as Al Gore on Global Warming still believe the oceans will control earth's temperature. This is why around 70%of the earth surface is coverd with oceans. He knew what would be needed for human survival when he created the planet. Also, we know that God is smarter than monkeys; that's for all the evolutionist out there. In environmentalism, an all-wise clergy, composed of government bureaucrats and "scientists," saves the planet from a sinful humanity. In the green religion human beings are both God and the devil. We are righteous when we act in conformity with the establishment's dogma -- and we are evil if we question it.

Bush continues to support drug smugglers

Patty Compean (left), Monica Ramos (right) and children (photo: Ramos, Compean families)

Posted: December 15, 200810:04 pm Eastern
By Chelsea Schilling© 2008 WorldNetDaily

As president, George W. Bush has pardoned or commuted sentences for 32 drug dealers, 12 thieves, seven embezzlers, an arsonist, an armed bank robber and eight Thanksgiving turkeys, among others – but U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean remain in prison this Christmas, praying for their release.
"It's pretty much salt in the wound," Ramos' wife, Monica, told WND. "But we have a lot of hope. My husband has quite a bit of faith, and we pray a lot. We are hoping the outpouring of support that we have here from people all over the nation is going to help us."
Ramos and Compean are serving 11- and 12-year prison sentences, respectively, for shooting at a fleeing illegal alien drug dealer while he smuggled nearly 750 pounds of marijuana across the border. They were convicted of assault, discharge of a weapon in the commission of a crime of violence, tampering with an official proceeding and deprivation of civil rights.
U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton's office gave the smuggler, Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila, full immunity from prosecution for agreeing to serve as the government's star witness and testify against the border agents. A ruling, from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of appeals, affirmed all convictions except for tampering with an official proceeding, which it vacated and remanded for re sentencing.
Americans need not worry. Our U.S. Government will insure a continuous flow of drugs across the Mexican border. Ramos and Compean are a example of what happens to anyone who impedes this supply.

View of the future

The Left, doom and gloom.
The Right, a glorious future where everything will be made right by God through Jesus Christ.

Left or Right, Liberal or Conservative, or as I like to say, "The Right and the Wrong." For the most part, each has a different view of the future. But in the end there will be only two classifications of people. The 'saved' and the 'lost'.

Do you believe everything you're being told?

If so, you must be living in

The Bailout: Remember how they couldn't get the bill passed fast enough to bail out the financial institutions, no questions asked. 700 billion; nothings too much for the buddies who pad the congressman's pockets, no matter what the American people say. Then when the three car companies ask for help, now they get the third degree, a thousand questions, plus they must give guaranteed pay back promise. Oh, how responsible our congress is.
Global warming: It's a fact, but if we are wrong we'll just change the outcome. First, the end results was going to be a new Ice Age. No, it's going to be an overheated planet, a Global Meltdown. No, now it's going to be that everyone drowns as oceans rise or maybe everyone freezes to death. Well, if we are wrong, we will figure out another outcome, just give us time.

High Gas Prices: What did our government and experts say was the cause of the ever increasing gasoline prices? It was because demand was greater than supply. We are running out of oil. But after the presidential election the prices mysteriously dropped. Could it be that the Democrats had the oil speculators in their back pocket and had them to artificially raise gas prices to make the sitting Republican party look bad to sway voters to vote democrat.
Evolution: We evolved from monkeys thru physical and mental changes over million of years. Now the Alligator has been around million of years, but looks the same today. I wonder how the different species knew which ones had to evolve while others knew to remain as they were.

Seven-year-old Ryan Lavrisa huddled close to his parents and three older siblings as they were corralled into a room, where each was handed citizenship papers and a shiny, new coin.
Next, they were ushered outside, where more than 20 sword-wielding men in Roman military uniforms rushed toward them and began barking orders.
"Move it!"
"Let's go!"
"Hurry up. You Jews are so slow!"
Lavrisa stopped and turned to his family.
"But we're not Jews," he said.
True, they're Catholic, replied his mother, Lois Lavrisa.
But playing along is all part of the fun in "The Journey," an interactive Christmas performance sponsored by Savannah Christian Church.
The two-week drama opened Wednesday and runs nightly from 6-8 p.m. through Sunday, then again Wednesday through Dec. 16.
This year marks the sixth re-enactment since 1999 of the biblical trek by Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.
The Lavrisa family has attended nearly each year.
"It's pretty exciting," said Ryan's dad, Tom Lavrisa. "It's a refreshing reminder of the meaning of what Christmas is all about."
Located on the evangelical mega-church's 52-acre campus off U.S. 17 near Ga. 204, the set includes a pontoon boat ride, an encampment of Roman soldiers, the huts of Mary and Joseph and a life-sized village replica of Bethlehem.
At the beginning of "The Journey," each participant is assigned to a "tribe." Tribe members each receive a "Phoenician half-shekel" coin and citizenship papers telling them their names.
The group is ushered along the trail by belligerent Roman soldiers, some on horseback, who bark orders and ridicule them for their interest in the story about the birth of Jesus.
The production is staffed by more than 1,000 volunteers from the church who work as carpenters, set designers, costume makers, scene directors, ticket takers and parking escorts.
Within the Bethlehem scene, dozens of actors play the roles of innkeepers, blacksmiths, fishmongers, soldiers, beggars, dancers and water-fetchers.
The hour-long performance also features a petting zoo and live animals including horses, donkeys, chickens, geese and a camel.
Organizers say the scale and popularity of "The Journey" has grown each year. The production attracted more than 11,000 visitors in 2005, the last time Savannah Christian staged the production.
This year's event includes tours in Spanish on Thursday nights, featuring a Spanish-speaking Mary and Joseph.
Registration is $5 per person. However, the church doesn't profit from the event, said Senior Pastor Cam Huxford. "The Journey" is a public service and a call to Christian faith.
"We are involved in 'The Journey' for two reasons," Huxford said. "We want to share what we believe is the core message of the Christmas season, which is about God's love for everyone on this planet and how far He's willing to go to express that."
The other reason is to give families a wholesome form of entertainment.
"God's just blessed us with lots of resources and lots of talented people," said Huxford, who is serving as the congregation's fifth pastor since the congregation formed in 1964 with fewer than 150 members. "We feel like we've been blessed, and we want to be a blessing to others as well."
The church today counts more than 5,000 worshippers weekly. Sunday services take place at The Savannah Theatre and Hesse Elementary School as well as on the main campus along Al Henderson Boulevard.
Church leaders say they don't pressure anyone to pray with them or even to identify themselves.
With a production as compelling as "The Journey," the church doesn't need to, Huxford said.
"The Christmas message it presents is about God's love for all mankind," he said. "That message is going to come through loud and clear."
If you go
When: 6-8 p.m. today-Sunday and Wednesday-Dec. 16 Where: Savannah Christian Church, 55 Al Henderson Blvd.

Most downfalls of Nations come from within.

1. Dec. 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor
2. Sept. 11, 2001 WTC

3. Today, the removal of God and morality from American life.

Did you know that 52 of the 55 signers of The Declaration of Independence were orthodox, deeply committed Christians? The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His personal intervention.

It is the same congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation.

Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution, is still remembered for his words, "Give me liberty or give me death." But in current textbooks the context of these words is deleted. Here is what he said: "An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that is left us. But we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a just God that presides over the destinies of nations. The battle sir, is not of the strong alone. 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."
These sentences have been erased from our textbooks.

Was Patrick Henry a Christian? The following year, 1776, he wrote this "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."

Consider these words that Thomas Jefferson wrote on the front of his well- worn Bible: "I am a Christian, that is to say a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator and, I hope, to the pure doctrine of Jesus also."

Consider these words from George Washington, the Father of our Nation, in his farewell speech on September 19, 1796:

"It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters. Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."

Was George Washington a Christian? Consider these words from his personal prayer book: "Oh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb and purge my heart by the Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with the knowledge of thy son, Jesus Christ."

Consider these words by John Adams, our second president, who also served as chairman of the American Bible Society.

In an address to military leaders he said, "We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
How about our first Court Justice, John Jay?

He stated that when we select our national leaders, if we are to preserve our Nation, we must select Christians. "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."
John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams, was the sixth U.S. President.

He was also the chairman of the American Bible Society, which he considered his highest and most important role. On July 4, 1821, President Adams said, "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."
Calvin Coolidge, our 30th President of the United States reaffirmed this truth when he wrote, "The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."

In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution: "The congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools."

William Holmes McGuffey is the author of the McGuffey Reader, which was used for over 100 years in our public schools with over 125 million copies sold until it was stopped in 1963. President Lincoln called him the "Schoolmaster of the Nation."

Listen to these words of Mr. McGuffey: "The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our notions on character of God, on the great moral Governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology."

Of the first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were distinctly Christian, including the first.

Harvard University, chartered in 1636. In the original Harvard Student Handbook rule number 1 was that students seeking entrance must know Latin and Greek so that they could study the scriptures:

"Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let everyone seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him (Proverbs 2:3)."
For over 100 years, more than 50% of all Harvard graduates were pastors!

It is clear from history that the Bible and the Christian faith, were foundational in our educational and judicial system. However in 1947, there was a radical change of direction in the Supreme Court.
It required ignoring every precedent of Supreme Court ruling for the past 160 years. The Supreme Court ruled in a limited way to affirm a wall of separation between church and state in the public classroom. In the coming years, this led to removing prayer from public schools in 1962.
Here is the prayer that was banished:
"Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee. We beg Thy blessings upon us and our parents and our teachers and our country.
In 1963, the Supreme Court ruled that Bible reading was outlawed as unconstitutional in the public school system. The court offered this justification: "If portions of the New Testament were read without explanation, they could and have been psychologically harmful to children."

Bible reading was now unconstitutional , though the Bible was quoted 94 percent of the time by those who wrote our constitution and shaped our Nation and its system of education and justice and government.

In 1965, the Courts denied as unconstitutional the rights of a student in the public school cafeteria to bow his head and pray audibly for his food. In 1980, Stone vs. Graham outlawed the Ten Commandments in our public schools.

The Supreme Court said this: "If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments were to have any effect at all, it would be to induce school children to read them. And if they read them, meditated upon them, and perhaps venerated and observed them, this is not a permissible objective."
Is it not a permissible objective to allow our children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments?

James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution of the United States, said this: "We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."

Today we are asking God to bless America. But how can He bless a Nation that has departed so far from Him?

Most of what you read in this article has been erased from our textbooks. Revisionists have rewritten history to remove the truth about our country's Christian roots. I , Mary Jones, the designer of this web page, encourage all who read and agree with the words herein, share it with others, so that the truth of our nation's history may be told.

Jihad against God

When will the Islamic Nation figure out that God has a plan for Israel that doesn't include their destruction by the Muslim Nations. In all these years they haven't defeated Israel, that tiny nation surrounded by the Arab world. So, who is on the side of God. I'd say not Islam, that false religion that worships a rock from space inside their black box.
