Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass is not just a children’s story. It presented a place where nothing was as it seemed to be. I think it to be an apt parable of where we are today. We are through the looking glass in America. We are told ad-naseum that we are the freest country on earth – yet that is no longer true. We are told that slavery is one of those very great evils of our past and that we must now expunge all memory of that era by destroying all the Confederate monuments that are still standing today, as well as any monument to anyone who held slaves at any time. Why must we do this? Because, we are told, slavery is such a great evil that every trace of it must be eradicated even if it requires the use of violence.
But is that all true? Are we the freest nation on earth? Was slavery eradicated back there on December 6th in the year of our Lord 1865? Consider the language of that Amendment to the Constitution called the 13th; “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime.…” So, if there is an exception then it hasn’t ended. What ended that day was the institution of private slavery, where some individual owned another individual as property. That exception clause in the 13th Amendment quite clearly established that the civil government in America claimed that it alone could be the slave master. And what a slave master it has become.
“The United States has the world’s highest incarceration rate and hosts more prison inmates than all other developed nations combined. This trend of ‘mass incarceration’ began in the 1970’s following ‘the War on Drugs’ with incarcerations increasing rapidly from the 1980’s to 1990’s…while the majority of incarcerated Americans are White, African Americans are disproportionately incarcerated as compared to what percentage of the population they make up…In October 2013, the incarceration rate of the United States of America was the highest in the world, at 716 per 100,000 of the national population. While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world’s population, it houses around 22 percent of the world’s prisoners.
There are about 320 million American citizens. According to a collection of 2005 – 2014 data as presented on prisonpolicy.org, the American criminal justice system holds more than 2.3 million people in 1,719 state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 942 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,283 local jails, and 79 Indian Country jails as well as in military prisons, immigration detention facilities, civil commitment centers, and prisons in the U.S. territories.” Factmyth.com
Perversely, “Corporations have lobbied for a broader and broader definition of ‘crime’ in the last 150 years. As a result, there are more (mostly dark-skinned) people performing mandatory, essentially unpaid, hard labor in America today than there were in 1830… The United States has the largest incarcerated population in the world. No other society in history has imprisoned more of its own citizens…The vast majority – 86 percent – of prisoners have been locked up for non-violent, victimless crimes, many of them drug-related…
[And the Corporations that profit enormously from this slave labor are household names] Wal-Mart – Although their company policy clearly states that ‘forced or prison labor will not be tolerated by Wal-Mart,’… Wal-Mart purchases its produce from prison farms, where laborers are often subjected to long hours in the blazing heat without adequate food or water.” returntonow.net
But you say, “Not to worry, I am a law abiding citizen, I will never be put in a cage by the civil government.” But does that mean you are not a slave?
Consider the disaster that befell our country in the year of our Lord 1913 – the creation of the Federal Reserve. It is no more Federal than the Federal Express. It is a privately held banking interest for the profit of its owners. When it was created it was given the sole power to create currency for our country. If you print money backed by nothing, you go to jail. When they print money backed by nothing they get to loan that money – which costs them nothing – to the American people at interest, which means we have to pay them with our labor and material wealth for something that is essentially worth nothing.
And we cannot escape the Biblical principle of Proverbs 22:7, “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Now that word servant translates the Hebrew word `ebbed, is also translated manservant, bondman or slave.
So we could translate “the borrower is slave to the lender.” Indeed, as Jesus reveals this truth in his parable of the Unforgiving Servant in Matthew 18:24-25: “And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.” In the ancient world, slavery was often in the result of financial insolvency.
Consider the wicked slavery President Woodrow Wilson sold us into on that cold morning two days before Christmas. It was his Christmas present, it wasn’t for the American people but private bankers. The America people were sold into debt slavery that very day for a debt that we did not owe.
To understand it, consider just the people in this sanctuary as a country unto ourselves. What if a decision was made to give Harry the sole and exclusive power of printing currency – the currency we all must use in every financial transaction. He prints the currency at our expense and then he loans it to us. So at the beginning of the year we each line up and ask Harry for a loan of $100. He very magnanimously offers us the terms of just 1% per year payable on December 31st. We agree to this because we are forced to used his currency alone for all financial transactions. We buy and sell with each other for 12 months and then comes December 31st. Let’s just say to simplify the illustration, we all wind up with the exact same amount of money at year’s end. We line up to pay Harry. What are we obliged to pay him? $101. But we each only have $100. We cannot borrow from each other for we are all indebted to him. We cannot print our own money or we go to jail. What are we to do? He alone can print currency, there is no other source. We must borrow the dollar from him that we owe him. But we still need currency to do business, so we need to borrow $100 for the next year, but we only get $99 because the interest ate up that other dollar. You see now what happened in 1913, America in its entirety was sold into debt slavery. We can never pay back the debt which we owe to the Federal Reserve – they are our masters. This is why I can literally guarantee you that Congress will raise the debt ceiling – they have to be able to pay the thieves at the Federal Reserve.
Consider the definition of slavery in Webster’s 1828 Dictionary: “slavery is the obligation to labor for the benefit of the master, without the contract of consent of the servant.“ Did any of us consent to have the Federal Reserve as our master? I know I did not.
But you might say, “So what, I can live my life and my pay check still buys groceries, so I’m not concerned, I don’t consider myself a slave.” Very well.
Consider the terms of chattel slavery – the master owned the body of the slave and could dispose of that slave any way he chose, including taking the life of his slave. And everyone is taught to say, “Things might be bad, but at least we don’t have that in America, after all we are the freest country on earth.” But then came March 25, in the year of our Lord 2010. Obama Care was passed.
“Buried deep within Obamacare is a provision that takes away health care from you and your doctors, by taking away payment for critical health care that may be needed to save your life. It is called The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). [More truthfully called death panels]
The board will be independent of you, your doctors, your hospitals, Medicare, Congress, the judiciary, the democratic process, ultimately even the Constitution itself…IPAB is to be composed of 15 unelected bureaucrats appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. But the board and its powers are so dangerous that even President Obama never made any appointments.
Starting next year, if Medicare spending is projected to grow faster than the rate of economic growth per capita plus 1 percentage point, IPAB is empowered to make a proposal that will cut Medicare spending at least to the targeted growth rate. IPAB will be proposing such Medicare cuts every year starting next…
“Burke Balch, director of the Powell Center, said Obamacare ‘authorizes Washington bureaucrats to create one uniform, national standard of care that is designed to limit what private citizens are allowed to spend to save their own lives.’
‘We are convinced most Americans do not believe that the government should limit the right of Americans to use their own money for health care necessary to save their lives. Yet, that is exactly what Obamacare does,’ he said.” wnd.com
But you say, “No problem, no one will suffer with this plan in place.” But consider what just happened last month to our East on the other side of the pond.
Charlie Gard’s fight for life touched the world.
The tot had a disease called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital had said Charlie should be allowed to die in dignity, and applied for permission to have his ventilator switched off.
But his parents fought determinedly against this decision – raising more than £1.3 million to pay for pioneering treatment in the US.
What happened in the legal battle?
April 11 – Charlie’s distraught parents were told by a judge at the High Court that his life support machine will be turned off – ruling that it would be cruel to try and extend Charlie’s life further.
May 25 – The couple begged senior Court of Appeal judges but they upheld the High Court ruling.
May 31 – The tot was given a last minute reprieve when Britain’s Supreme Court agreed to review the case, but they then ruled that Charlie’s life support must be switched off.
June 27 – The European Court of Human Rights ruled that they would not intervene – which meant his life-support was expected to be stopped on Friday June 30.
June 30 – After a heart-wrenching plea from Chris and Connie, Great Ormond Street agreed to grant them more time with little Charlie to say goodbye.
July 10 – The case returned to the High Court when the family asked for permission to take the terminally ill tot to the States for a “miracle” treatment. More than 490,000 people signed a petition calling for him to be allowed to travel.
July 17 – A US doctor flew into the UK to meet with British medics. Dr. Michio Hirano believes he can help Charlie.
July 19 – The US Congress gave Charlie US citizenship after Dr. Michio Hirano, 56, was unable to convince British consultants that his experimental treatment offers a lifeline.
July 22 – Great Ormond Street call cops after staff receive death threats over the case.
July 24 – Chris Gard and Connie Yates withdraw their application to take their son to America for treatment after admitting damage done to the 11-month-old’s muscle and tissue is “irreversible” – and he will not live to see his first birthday.
July 25 – Great Ormond Street Hospital tells Charlie Gard’s parents their son’s ventilator won’t fit through their front door after they launch a court bid to take their son home to die.
July 26 – Following a deeply emotional day in the courtroom, a judge gave Charlie’s parents until 12.00pm on July 27 to reach an agreement with GOSH on his end-of-life care – failing which he will be transported to a hospice for his final days.
July 27 – The 12.00pm deadline for an agreement over Charlie’s end-of-life care passed, with it unclear if a compromise over treatment had been reached.
Eventually, the judge Mr. Justice Francis approved a plan which would see the tot “inevitably” die shortly after being moved to a hospice.
July 28 – Charlie’s mum Connie revealed that he had lost his battle with his illness, and had died a week before his first birthday. In a statement the pair said: “Our beautiful little boy has gone, we are so proud of you Charlie.” Thesun.co.uk
“The hospital refused to give Charlie back to his parents. The matter ended up in the courts, and, finally, in the last several hours, the European Court of ‘Human Rights’ ruled that the parents should be barred from taking their son to the United States for treatment. According to the ‘human rights’ court, it is Charlie’s human right that he expire in his hospital bed in London. The parents are not allowed to try and save his life. It is ‘in his best interest’ to simply die, they ruled.
In Europe, ‘Death with dignity’ supersedes all other rights. In Europe, a mother may kill her baby but she is not allowed to keep him alive….The doctors may be the final authority on what kinds of medical measures they personally should take, but they are not the final authority over life itself. It is one thing for them to say, ‘I will not do this treatment.’ It’s quite another for them to say, ‘You are not allowed to have this treatment done by anyone. You must die.’ The former is reasonable. The latter is euthanasia. This baby [was] euthanized. By barbarians….This is what happens with socialized medicine. If the State runs the health care system, ultimately they will be the ones who decide whose life is worth saving and whose is not. That’s not just a byproduct of socialized medicine — it’s the point [of socialized medicine].” Theblaze.com
In 1947 Britain adopted socialized medicine – Obama Care by another name. Charlie Gard is the future of slavery in America.
If you are not permitted with your own money to save your own life by medical treatments that are available, then are you free? If you don’t own your own body then who does? What Charlie Gard has shown us is that the State, that is human civil government, claimed to own his body. His parents were not free to make such simple decisions as to take their son for treatment at another facility in another country that would help him live. Parental rights have expired in Britain and are dying in America. The Medical Industrial Complex has endured a takeover by Big Brother, the civil government in America – and the shadow of Charlie Gard shows us clearly the end game of that take over.
Euthanasia by civil government makes logical sense. We know that the promises politicians in Washington have made regarding Social Security payouts, Medicare and Medicaid payments are unsustainable. They have made more than 100 Trillion dollar promises they cannot keep. What now appears on the horizon is that solution provided in Obama Care – simply kill the problem. Eliminate what they call the “useless eaters” so you don’t have to pay them Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. And then pass more death taxes to steal their retirement savings and investments as well.
When a civil government rejects God’s Law, as ours effectively has, look out my friends for neither your life, your liberty, nor your property are safe from the thieves. We have descended into a Kleptocracy – a government of the thieves and by the thieves and above all for the thieves.
