Airport Body Scanners: Basic Decency Denied

On December 25th of last year came a curious holiday gift wrapped in a Nigerian man’s undergarments and delivered aboard Northwest Airlines. Who can forget the so-called “Underwear Bomber”?

A bizarre incident which really evokes a deep down sense of absurdity… but treated with such seriousness by the government and media and finally by a public who is again admonished to keep remembering and believing in the imminent threat of Islamic terrorism.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was supposedly on a terrorist “watch list”…the US government apparently saw no need to revoke his visa anyway because, they tell us, they were tracking his movement to learn more about him.

Seems reasonable… unless you’re one of over a million Americans who have been put on no flight lists because you’re a veteran or a member of a militia or just caught disliking government policies a little too much. Then it might seem somewhat ludicrous that the government has no qualms about letting a foreign man fly on US planes who is deemed to be a known Islamic extremist.

Then there’s Kurt Haskell… the man who witnessed the entire embarkation of the Underwear Terrorist.

His story completely disregarded by government and media alike, he witnessed the Nigerian being escorted by a well dressed, wealthy looking man who was clearly not an employee of the airline. Though appearing Indian, the man spoke English like any American and reasoned with the airline concerning the Nigerian’s lack of a passport “we do this all the time”.

“The FBI visited my office on December 29, 2009, and showed me a series of approximately 10 photographs. None were of the SDM. I asked the FBI if they brought the Amsterdam security video to help me identify the SDM, but they acted as though my request was ridiculous. The FBI asked me what accent the SDM spoke in and I indicated that he had an American accent similar to my own. I further indicated that he wore a tan suit without a tie, was Indian looking, around age 50, 6’0” tall and 250-260 lbs. I further indicated that I did not believe that he was an airline employee and that he was not on our flight…

“On January 20, 2010, current Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), Michael E. Leiter, made a startling admission. Leiter indicated that: “I will tell you, that when people come to the country and they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another…

“Could the SDM have been a U.S. Government official? He dressed in a suit and not a security uniform. Check. He indicated we do this all the time. Could “we” be the U.S. Government? Check. He spoke English with an American accent. Check. Would he need to convince the ticket agent that this was a normal procedure to allow boarding without a passport? Check. Would he have the ability to obtain such clearance? Check. Could he enter this security area even though he wasn’t a passenger? Check. Would the ticket agent likely refer this request to a manager? Check. Would the U.S. Government not want this information public and try to hide it? Check.”

The incident hit the media outlets like alarm bells for the next 9-11. Ignoring every indication of a carefully engineered plan to just this end, the masses barely flinched when immediately airport security went from highly inconvenient to downright abusive overnight. Enter the backscatter x-ray full body scanner.

If you were under the impression that the airport body scanner became a reality as a result of a sudden need for higher security, you’d be mistaken.

These invasive little devices are the creation of a client company of one Michael Chertoff, former head of Homeland Security who took advantage of this very convenient underwear episode months after the company, Rapiscan, sold 25 million dollars of the technology to TSA. What a timely sale.

If there is any right which sums up the most basic of freedoms, it has to be the right to ones own body. Nothing is more personal, nothing else is more truly in any persons possession than their own flesh. It must certainly be a sort of canary in the coal mine where it comes to personal freedoms when the majority are willing to submit their right to their own body to strangers who claim an authority over it in the name of…. defending the Land of the Free?

When it is suddenly OK that airports demand to see a person nude in one of their ionizing backscatter scanners, does it ever occur to the populace that hypothetically being conquered by Islamo-fascists could be any worse?

At least they tend to agree we should keep our clothes on. Hence I consider it the height of hypocrisy when someone declares of the present ongoing “war on terror” and the military involvement in it as “defending our freedoms”. Stripping people (literally) of their humanity is a path to freedom in what reality?

At the risk of sounding old fashioned… back in the day, when “men were men”, it would be a cold day in a very hot place when anyone’s wife or child or elderly mother would be allowed to be subjected to a strip search by people whose moral character was unknown at best and extremely questionable at worst.

They, after all, are not criminals… they are average citizens simply trying to travel and they are subject to the sorts of abuses which literally are criminal in any other context. If the idea of a neighbor with high powered binoculars spying on one’s wife or child while dressing is disturbing… this should be more so by virtue of the fact that it is condoned by those in “authority”.

All common decency and dignity aside… this device is an X-ray. It works by way of ionizing radiation, a serious cumulative health hazard in spite of the assurances of the FDA and government spokesmen.

The FDA being the same organization who feels no need to warn people on food labels of eating genetically manipulated organisms, who approve thousands of brand name drugs that are later shown to cause numerous fatalities… these are the people the public trusts when it comes to irradiating their bodies at the airport.

Ionizing radiation is known to cause chromosome damage. Even the supposedly innocuous “background” radiation which passes through Earth’s atmosphere and reaches Earth is not so harmless… it too, eventually breaks the body down and causes aging.

Most of the radiation from a backscatter scanner is concentrated on the surface of the skin and the fatty layer just below it… the potential risk for skin and breast cancer is especially concerning.

The FDA claim that it would require some 5,000 scans per year to reach any level of threat, even if generally correct (and evidence would suggest it isn’t) does not account for the 1 in 20 people who are genetically highly sensitive to radiation or the fact that children are all much more sensitive to radiation than adults as they are still growing.

Ionizing radiation is comprised of EM waves or subatomic particles that basically rip the electrons from the atoms and molecules in one’s cells. If it sounds like bad news, that’s because it is.

The risks, the “experts” say, are outweighed by the benefits. The benefits are that people are supposed to feel more secure. Secure from what, I wonder? Secure from the one terrorist who did not get the memo on the new technology?

The next obvious step, if one buys into the terrorist threat line, is that they will inevitably begin stowing their explosive devices, etc. in body cavities. What then? Are you really ready for a full cavity search in order to board a plane? Are you living in a free country when survival at any cost is the new definition thereof? Is there anyone left who feels basic human rights are worth a little risk if there is some?

Having rolled over like cowering puppies, the public has not purchased peace of mind, they’ve simply helped the government up the ante on paranoia.

Compliance to body scanners has proven that Fear and Cowardice are the real slave masters of the masses and that they will bow before any oppressor who serve their tools, Tyranny and Corruption. They will allow their wives, their kids, their old mothers and fathers to be manhandled, insulted, poked, irradiated, stared at in the nude and reduced to tears.

Don’t be fooled by the assurances TSA has given that the images cannot be stored or transferred or that the images themselves are not well defined and photograph clear.

TSA’s own documents clearly specify that the machines must have both image storing and sending ability.

The images the machines produce must be able to focus in on the most private details of the body in order to be able to identify any suspicious item attached to the body.

There is technically an opt-out option for the scanners.

This “opting out”, however, simply puts one in a position to choose between a nude picture of themselves viewed by multiple strangers or an incredibly personal pat down which includes a startlingly thorough feel-up of one’s most private areas.

That’s called “molestation” anywhere else on earth.

The obvious intent of such a horribly intrusive pat down is to ensure that the body scanner remain the preferable option for most people. Most people would rather pose for an embarrassing picture than subject themselves to a legalized sexual assault.

If you think we’ve reached the absolute limit in denying citizens a right to basic privacy, try to imagine a future when this is the norm in a wide variety of public places: court rooms, libraries, bus stations, schools, sporting events, etc.

Now ask yourself if you think you have the courage to resist before that becomes a reality. Please, American citizens – at least for the sake your kids and your elders – have the guts and the decency to refuse this perverse form of oppression.

“Defend the poor and fatherless.

Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy.

Free them from the hand of the wicked.”

– Psalm 82:3,4

Kabbalah: Seeking Truth or a Worthless Mystery

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/02/2010 by timenolonger

Hidden mysteries, secret knowledge and higher spiritual wisdom are very attractive concepts to many people.

There is a sense in many individuals that the current generation of the world has been deprived of information relating to spiritual truths, and so anything which both satisfies the excitement of possessing hidden spiritual knowledge and seems to fill in many gaps left by traditional views, is easily accepted.

Nothing exists in a non Christian’s world view which contradicts exploring spiritualism that is occult.

Ensnaring the non believer in veiled Luciferian doctrine is no challenge, but for the believer it should be evident what conflicts scriptural morality have with these same concepts.

Still, the enemy is not lazy and there is an outlet for occult practices which bears enough of a resemblance to Christianity or biblical themes to lure the untrained or unguarded believer into them.

Kabbalah has attracted many adherents from every sort of spiritual viewpoint, but it’s traditional connection to the use of old testament texts and themes makes it a very tempting philosophy for Christians, especially those seeking some deeper understanding of the Creator, which is lacking in most Churches, and which Kabbalah promises to provide.

It does not attract those Christians by way of appealing to a fervor to know Him and a better understanding to obey Him, though, as it would if there was a pure motive involved, and the practice of it delivered a righteous message.

It appeals to the base senses of pride in the fallen nature, offering something which is supposedly exclusive, and transcending knowledge only a ‘worthy soul’ could connect with and understand. This gives the adherents a certain sense of elite status to be a part of such a thing, all of which is simply a matter of empty pride.

Kabbalah or Qabbalah, meaning “receiving” is a mystical philosophy which supposes to explain the nature of Elohim, of His creation, the nature of souls, good, evil and the relationships between all these things.

Though the practice uses a highly symbolic interpretation of scripture, it more heavily relies on traditions which are extra-biblical and occult.

As it now exists, traditional “Judaic” Kabbalah only manifested as a recorded presence in the middle ages, but it’s adherents maintain that it’s teachings have come down orally from the beginning of human existence on Earth. It gradually became a more secret practice throughout history and is only receiving a more public awareness in these later days.

Truthfully, Kabbalah is nearly as old many who practice it say. The teachings of this philosophy are not fundamentally Jewish, nor have their beginnings in Israel or her patriarchs, though.

Regardless of the name it goes by, or the incorporation of Hebrew themes and names for the Creator, it began as the pagan opposition of everything YHWH stands for and admonished His people to live by.

Kabbalah so resembles Babylonian mystery religion because that is exactly what it is –

And has simply been absorbed into Jewish tradition during Israeli captivity in Babylon, contrary to all warnings YHWH has given His people to be separate from such things.

It is also as new as it is old, meaning that what is today newly popular, a trend toward believing in a spiritual outlook which regards human beings as divine and regards all creation as one and a part of whatever is viewed as “god” which is endowed with a feminine aspect , often termed “New Age” is very much what Kabbalah teaches.

Though disguised as monotheistic and based upon a belief in the One true Creator, Kabbalah views Him in ten personifications or “emanations” corresponding to four “worlds”.

The same principal is seen in the occult geomancy/ astrology practice of Feng Shui where there are ten deities corresponding to four “pillars” and is also seen in the Egyptian ennead – nine “gods and one “hidden” deity.

In the Kabbalistic tradition, the Creator caused a void in the act of creation which brought chaos into being. Self aware creation is formed as a result of this destructive event and thus beings who are able to commit willful sin. The Creator Himself is so shown as a being who both manifests disorder and is the sole origin of evil.

There is no “enemy”, no Satan, nothing which opposes the Creator, since He has authored the disorder Himself.

This explanation is directly contrary to the nature of YHWH, according to scripture, who is clearly described as purely righteous and the author of order, never chaos.

Kabbalah deals heavily in the use of gemantria, a practice by which hidden interpretations are derived out of scripture and other texts using a numbering system that correlates to each Hebrew letter, and in turn correlates to a specific meaning.

Without doubt, there is meaning in all reality and there is math at the base of all things He created and ordered. The danger of attempting to gain hidden knowledge by way of numerical divination is that this is an example of infants playing with highly technical and dangerous machinery.

YHWH does not hide the information He intends His creation to understand and if there be anything He does not intend to make known to us, our attempt to know it is futile and can only result in misinterpretation. That misinterpretation is fuel for the enemy to deceive us. Numerological divination has always been linked with the astrology and alchemy of numerous pagan belief systems.

The scriptures are very to the point in making it well understood that YHWH and the laws He put forth are the only acceptable standard and that Yahushua is the only acceptable redeemer to that standard which provides reconciliation for the sinner.

There is no question of the exclusivity of belonging to Him or the exclusivity of the available means we have to do so. That inherent truth is at least diluted in Kabbalistic understanding, if not completely abandoned.

Kabbalah has accepted, and been accepted by, a wide variety of belief systems including Eastern religions, Islam, Gnosticism and every manner of pagan religion. It is universalist fundamentally, as is the current religious trend leading into the New World Order, globalist “oneness” cult.

Those who have taught Kabbalah in the ancient past were at least aware that their practice was highly dangerous and that the influences they called upon in doing so were treacherous.

Though not wise enough to put away the abomination from them entirely, they had more wisdom than do the ignorant dabblers in this philosophy now who pursue it in foolish disregard for fire they play with.

Yahushua spoke of these masters of the mystery religion who sought far and wide to find one “worthy” pupil to train up in his demonic enlightenment.

“Woe to you, scribes and Parash (Pharisees), hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of the valley of Hinnom as yourselves.”

– Matthew 23:15

The sect of the Pharisees were that which brought Kabbalah out of Babylon and into Judaism.

Of the non biblical texts which Kabbalah uses and relies on, the Zohar is one of the most important. The Zohar was penned by Moses De Leon in the 13th century, though he credited the content to Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai. It would seem that Moses De Leon actually received the information by way of becoming a medium to a spirit who dictated or wrote the text.

Shimon bar Yohai, himself was a teacher of the mystery arts and had been well known for his many so-called miracles. It is held in rabbinical records that he requested the assistance of a demon to possess the daughter of the Roman Emperor so that he could then demonstrate his powers by casting it out of her.

The text of the Zohar is actually a group of books which contains mystical interpretation of the Torah. The interpretations bear a strong resemblance to more modern theosophy than Judaic religion.

It is here that one finds the model of the trinity which is ancient and pagan but not the least Christian. The Creator, according to the Zohar, has three archetypes including a feminine aspect and an incomprehensible aspect which is above human involvement or understanding.

If there is still any possible doubt that Kabbalah opposes all things which are aligned with His will, consider the Kabbalists use of the supposed Name of Elohim, known as Shemhamphorasch.

The selfish use of His Name to gain personal power is a transgression which dates back to the pre-flood era. The Watchers having taught men the Name and how it might be used in this way is exactly the purpose of the commandment YHWH gave to not take His name in vain.

The Letters derived from three verses in Exodus having 72 characters each are arranged in a precise pattern which spell out the names of 72 angels and 72 “names of god”.

These beings, though, should not be assumed to be benevolent servants of YHWH.

These names are well known in occult belief to be the names of 72 fallen angels sometimes claimed to have been controlled by Solomon and employed to build his temple, even though such an act would contradict every warning of scripture to have nothing to do with drawing upon spiritual power that is not His Holy Spirit.

Anton Lavey, founder of the Church of Satan promoted calling upon these same beings and their names can be identified in grimoirs used in witchcraft.

Tarot cards, as well, owe their arrangement and naming to these 72 fallen angels. The names, divided into pairs are attributed to a ten degree section of the zodiac or ten numbers, four court cards and 22 major arcana – 36 pairs.

Seeking truth has become a popular claim, yet it is not enough to simply seek out truth. The motive itself must be Truth. To immerse one’s life in the honoring and worshiping of false deities is the definition of “practicing a lie”.

If the knowledge sought is to the end of fulfilling a desire to simply gain understanding of what seems hidden or exclusive or powerful, the final result is acquiring a vain and worthless mystery that belongs to those who have nothing to do with truth.

“Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and image worshippers, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”

– Revelation 22:14,15

“And now to the Watchers, who have sent you to pray for them, who in the beginning were in heaven, Say, In heaven have you been; secret things, however, have not been manifested to you; yet have you known a worthless mystery.

And this you have related to women in the hardness of your heart, and by that mystery have women and mankind multiplied evils upon the earth.”

– 1 Enoch 16: 2-4

“You worship what you do not know.

We know what we worship, for salvation is of the Yahudiym.

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

Yahuwah is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

– John 4: 22-24
