As I'm sure you remember, last year, the Cliven Bundy family ranch was invaded by federal agents from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). That caused a dramatic standoff between the federal agents and concerned American citizens to rush to stand by the Bundy's side. As the television and video cameras rolled, the federal agents to back down Recently I was invited by the Bundy family to provide a short presentation to the Bundy followers about Agenda 21 so that Americans can know the root of that federal action. Here is the video that I provided.

Rosa Koire Speech about Agenda 21
The speaker is Rosa Koire, the author of "Behind the Green Mask" which explains what Agenda 21 really is. Rosa Koire is a Democrat speaking before a group of Tea Party Members. UN Agenda 21 doesnt discriminate based on Political Affiliation, Race, Sexuality, Creedo or whatever. Agenda 21 is about the Extermination of Mankind and Ultimate Control for those that are left. Those in power know that they cannot follow through on their plans unless Liberty, Money and Property are taken away. This is in their own literature and UN Agenda 21 DEMANDS Zero Economic Growth.

Agenda 21 is about World Dominance and nothing else. The Wars, Attack of Christians, Attack of God & Religion, Chemtrails, Economic and Monetary Collapse, Government Corruption, Carbon Taxes, Gun Control, CORPORATE Owned Media, UFO Sham, Erosion of Rights, Lies About Global Warming, Lies About Overpopulation, Perversion of Societal Values, Dumbing Down, Drugs, Substandard K-12 Education, Monsanto, are all a result of the Mandates set forth by U.N. Agenda 21.

At the Rio 2012 Summit on UN Agenda 21, it was stated that "Governments should invest their transportation money on Public Transportation because roadways only largely benefit those that own vehicles". Really? I thought Roadways benefitted the Economy and Society as a Whole. Roadways get us to and from work, to grocery stores, to the bank, to restaurants, to shopping malls. Roadways transport our food and things we need. The UN intends to Impede our Right to Travel and Pursuit of Happiness.

As far as the Middle East Wars go, Reagan demonstrated that war is unnecessary. When Khadaffi was openly threatening us, Reagan bombed his house and we didn't hear much from him after that. The other middle east countries quickly fell in line and repaired their relations with us. With the technology we have today, and that includes Intelligence, Satellite, SDI, Drones and DEWS, we could take out the hostile leaders of these countries without having to go to war.

How did it come to this? It all started with the Fabian Society and the Act of 1871, where Congress created the DC Corporation & created a new Constitution, then the FEDERAL US GOVERNMENT became a Corporation. As the largest Corporate Conglomerate on the planet, the US GOVERNMENT owns majority shares in ALL of THE Fortune 500 Companies and their CAFR reports prove this (See the channel belonging to CorporationNation "Dear Matt Damon" videos). The Act of 1871 was not only Unconstitutional, but is INVALID. The FED GOVERNMENT we have today is the De Facto, or Shadow Government. But, we cannot do anything about that now but we can put a halt to the Ultimate Goal, which is this Evil Agenda and then begin to put this Great Country of ours back together and reverse the treasonous legislation. We must also OUST anyone who showed any inkling of support for UN Agenda 21. UN Agenda 21 has been in the works for decades, now, and is the primary reason for the corruption & depravity we see everywhere today at all levels.

Don't let yourselves be fooled - everything else is a smokescreen to keep your attention away from Agenda 21. Once Agenda 21 becomes fully implemented, all hope is lost. Get the information out to your neighbors, home owners, business owners. Chances are, they have never heard of UN Agenda 21. Since Agenda 21 is implemented Locally, once the people are mobilized, they can take the issue to their City Council and County and put a halt to all policies, monies and ties to UN Agenda 21 and ICLEI.

We cannot change the past but we can affect tomorrow by the actions we take Today.

IF WE CAN ABOLISH AGENDA 21 WE CAN BEGIN TO FIX OUR NATION AND RESTORE THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION AND HAVE THE GOVERNMENT "OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE" .

Beacon Baptist Church: America the Beautiful
Published on May 30, 2013
http://beaconbaptistchurch.org/

Beacon Baptist Church was established in Jupiter, Fl. in 1956, as an independent New Testament Church. Beacon has never aspired to be anything other than what Jesus called a "Church." Our "meeting place" is a beautiful building located in Jupiter Farms. However, the building is not the church. The Bible defines a church as an assembly of Believers banded together for evangelism, edification, and worship. We love our church because we love people. Our greatest desire is to glorify God by leading people to Christ; people who will trust Him, know Him, love Him, and serve Him!

PATRIOT RAND PAUL'S 10.5 HOUR FILIBUSTER CALLS FOR "OPEN REBELLION" AGAINST NSA SPY PROGRAM~DEFYING EVIL DOES NOT MAKE HIM AN ANARCHIST OR DISOBEDIENT TO GOD

FOR GOD AND COUNTRY
10.5 HOURS SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER:
PATRIOT RAND PAUL'S FILIBUSTER 
CALLS FOR "OPEN REBELLION" AGAINST 
NSA SPY PROGRAM
BY JACK KENNY
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

With a call for “open rebellion” against the program, Senator Rand Paul (shown, R-Ky.) held the Senate floor for ten-and-a-half hours Wednesday in opposition to extending provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act that allow the National Security Agency to collect billions of telephone records and and electronic messages every day.
"We should be in open rebellion, saying, 'enough is enough, we're not going to take it anymore,'" Paul said of the NSA’s “metadata” program. Calling for “a thorough and complete debate,” the first-term senator asked: "Do we want to live in a world where the government knows everything about us? Do we want to live in a word where the government has us under constant surveillance?"
The PATRIOT Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. Section 215, which authorizes the surveillance activities, is due to expire on June 1, unless reauthorized by Congress. A Justice Department memo, circulated among members of Congress Wednesday, said unless Congress renews the authority or a modified version of it, the NSA will begin “taking steps to wind down” bulk collection of data as early as this Friday. 
“In the event of a lapse in authority and subsequent reauthorization, there will necessarily be some time needed to restart the program,” the memo said. The House last week passed the USA Freedom Act that amends the law by ending the authority for the bulk collections and giving intelligence agencies access to telephone and other records only when a court finds there is reasonable suspicion about a specific link to international terrorism.
"One [court] order would no longer authorize a bulk collection program, whether for telephone metadata or for other purposes," Georgia Institute of technology professor Peter Swire told the Christian Science Monitor. Swire served on a review commission appointed by President Barack Obama after the program was exposed by Edward Snowden, an intelligence analyst with an NSA contractor. The bulk collections are “not essential to preventing attacks” and information needed to disrupt terrorist plots “could readily have been obtained in a timely manner using conventional” court orders, the president’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology said in a December 2013 report. The group was one of two independent panels that studied the program and concluded that it had not stopped terrorist plots.
Paul argued Wednesday that the Freedom Act still left the government with inordinate surveillance power, citing the liability protection it provides telephone companies as evidence that the program will continue to invade the privacy of citizens’ communications.
"One question I would ask, if there was anybody that would actually tell you the answer, would be: If we already gave them liability protection under the Patriot Act, why are they getting it again under the USA Freedom Act unless we're asking them to do something new that they didn't have permission for?" Paul asked. “If you think bulk collection is wrong, why do they need new authorities? Why are we giving them some new authorities?"
President Obama has said he supports the House bill and would sign it into law. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other leading Republicans want an extension of the program as currently authorized. Paul’s filibuster might be considered a pre-emptive strike against the Senate measure since it has not yet come to the floor. Given the Senate’s long and involved parliamentary process, it appears the extension will not be passed before the House goes on recess Thursday and it seems even less likely that the Senate will stay in session over the Memorial Day weekend to pass the House bill. The increasing likelihood that the authorization will expire before Congress acts has some in Washington worried that the nation’s security will be compromised. Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) accused Paul of "doing a disservice to the country” by putting national security at risk.
"He's unnecessarily frightening the American people," said King, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said in an interview with Newsmax.com. "He's making the [National Security Agency] out to be the enemy. In fact, the enemy is al-Qaida, ISIS, and Islamist terrorism, and the NSA is the key weapon that the United States has in the war against al-Qaida," King said. "The NSA does not listen to anyone's phone calls and does not read anyone's emails. There have been no abuses found against the NSA.”
The argument that no abuses have been found rings hollow as a defense of a program that is conducted in and guarded with the strictest of secrecy and became known to the American people only through Edward Snowden’s illegal disclosures. Even senators and representatives serving on committees with alleged oversight of the program can’t say what they know about it. And while the NSA may or may not be listening to phone calls, the agency is gathering the e-mails of millions of Americans, along with records of all their phone calls, without probable cause for suspicion that they are involved in or are plotting illegal activities. The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated and no Warrant shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the person or things to be seized. 
Senator Paul, who has declared his candidacy for the 2016 Republican Party presidential nomination, promised, in an e-mail to campaign contributors, to filibuster against the program. "I will not rest," he said in the fundraising e-mail. "I will not back down. I will not yield one inch in this fight so long as my legs can stand."
Paul started speaking at 1:18 p.m. and quit at 11:49, yielding at various points to colleagues including two Republicans — Mike Lee of Utah and Steve Daines of Montana — and seven Democrats: Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Chris Coons of Delaware, Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, Joseph Manchin of West Virginia, Jon Tester of Montana, and Ron Wyden of Oregon. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, one of Paul’s competitors for the Republican nomination, had promised to join the talk-a-thon, but was instead called to preside over the nearly empty Senate chamber.
The National Journal noted a strong connection between Paul’s senate oration and his presidential campaign fundraising, citing a message from the senator’s Twitter account alerting readers to a “Filibuster Starter Pack,” available for purchase at Paul’s online campaign store. The kit costs $30 and includes a t-shirt with the message: “The NSA knows I bought this Rand Paul t-shirt,” a bumper sticker with a similar message and a “Spy blocker” for computers.
“There comes a time in the history of nations when fear and complacency allow power to accumulate and liberty and privacy to suffer," Paul said Wednesday at the opening of his remarks. "That time is now, and I will not let the PATRIOT Act, the most unpatriotic of acts, go unchallenged."

PETER KING ACCUSES RAND PAUL OF ‘SPREADING FEAR’ WITH 

PATRIOT ACT FILIBUSTER

Congressman ludicrously claims, 
"we are not sacrificing any liberty"
by Paul Joseph Watson
SEE: http://www.infowars.com/peter-king-accuses-rand-paul-of-spreading-fear-with-patriot-act-filibuster/republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes: 

Congressman Peter King accused Senator Rand Paul of ‘spreading fear’ during his marathon Patriot Act ‘filibuster’ last night, asserting that, “we are not sacrificing any liberty” as a result of NSA spying.
“They’re not listening to anyone’s phone calls or reading anyone’s emails,” said King, asserting that just Americans’ phone numbers were being stored by the federal agency and could only be investigated after a court order.
In reality, following the Edward Snowden leaks in 2013, it was reported that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler was told that the contents of a domestic phone call could be accessed “simply based on an analyst deciding that.” No court authorization was necessary.
Based on the same legal standard, the NSA could also access and read Americans’ emails and text messages without the need for any court approval.
“The NSA frequently eavesdrops on Americans’ calls and reads their emails without any individualized warrants – exactly that which NSA defenders, including Obama, are trying to make Americans believe does not take place,” wrote Glenn Greenwald.
King’s claim that the NSA can “do nothing without court approval,” is completely false.
In addition, during a sworn declaration to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, former NSA mathematician William Binney said that the federal agency, “has the capability to do individualized searches, similar to Google, for particular electronic communications in real time through such criteria as target addresses, locations, countries and phone numbers, as well as watch-listed names, keywords, and phrases in email.”
“Senator Paul is doing a disservice to the country when he makes these charges. He’s making the CIA and the NSA the enemy,” said King during his appearance on Fox News, charging that Paul was spreading fear, misinformation, and that, “We are not sacrificing any liberty.”
Peter King is the Congressman from hell. It’s as if Satan himself personally dispatched King to earth with orders to radiate perpetual evil.
Normally a representative on either the left or the right will advocate at least some pro-liberty policies, even if you disagree with most of what they say.
King is devoid of any redeeming qualities whatsoever. He is neither a liberal nor a conservative, but a kind of weird hybrid which combines the very worst aspects of both – the quintessential RINO. If John McCain and Lindsey Graham were cloned and combined in some nightmarish scientific experiment, Peter King would be the result.
Pro-war, pro-spying, pro-Patriot Act, pro-drone strikes, pro-banker bailout, King was even endorsed twice by the pro-gun control Brady Campaign.
King has virtually no conservative principles at all and yet has somehow been masquerading as a Republican Congressman for over two decades.
Thank God people like Rand Paul exist to remind us what true conservatism is supposed to stand for.

U.S. Government Drops Remaining Charges Against Evolutionary Foe Kent Hovind

BY HEATHER CLARK
PENSACOLA, Fla. — Federal prosecutors have filed a motion to dismiss the remaining criminal charges against an imprisoned creation science evangelist after a jury deadlocked on the matter and was not convinced of his guilt.
As previously reported, Kent Hovind, the founder of Creation Science Evangelism out of Pensacola, Florida, has been fighting charges of mail fraud and contempt for contesting liens against a number of properties that had been seized by the government several years ago.
He has been incarcerated since 2007 over 58 federal counts, 45 of which centered on alleged “structuring,” a term that refers to breaking up one’s banking transactions into smaller amounts in order to avoid reporting. The original intent of the law had reportedly been to catch drug dealers and money launderers.
In regard to Hovind’s specific charges, the minister and his wife had made dozens of cash withdrawals of just over $9,000 each over a year’s time, and the government asserted that he was attempting to “obstruct and impede the due administration of the internal revenue laws.” However, Hovind said that he paid for his ministry expenses in cash—including compensation for those involved with Creation Science Evangelism—and was not seeking to evade any laws as anything over $10,000 was reported as required.
In addition to structuring charges, Hovind was leveled with twelve counts of failing to pay payroll taxes. However, he stated that considered those who worked with the ministry to be independent contractors responsible for paying their own taxes and not employees.
Hovind was not charged with tax evasion, but in 2004, his home was raided by IRS agents, and tax liens were placed against 10 properties relating to his biblical theme park. He filed three separate lawsuits against the government in an attempt to stop the proceedings, which he viewed as harassment, but was unsuccessful.
In 2006, the case went to trial, and a jury convicted him on all 58 counts. His wife, Jo Delia, was convicted on 44 counts. In January 2007, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and remains incarcerated to this day.
As Hovind has been seeking to contest the lien from behind bars, he was subsequently charged with two counts of mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and one count of contempt. Concerns were raised that he could spend life behind bars for mailing legal documents about the lein from jail.
According to the Pensacola News Journal, years ago, Hovind had been prohibited under a court order not to contest the government’s lien on the properties. Because he did file papers, including a “lis pendens,” which warns potential buyers that the land is under dispute, he was charged with contempt. The mail fraud charges were for actually mailing the documents from prison.
But in March, jurors deadlocked on all but the contempt charge as they could not come to an agreement over the mail fraud accusations. A re-trial was scheduled for Monday.
However, attorneys for Hovind filed a motion to dismiss, and on Saturday, reports surfaced that federal prosecutors had likewise filed a motion to drop the remaining charges against Hovind without prejudice.
The creation evangelist faces sentencing for the contempt charge on June 12. He was otherwise scheduled for release in August.

AS GOES THE CHURCH, SO GOETH THE NATION – 5 LESSONS FROM THE HOVIND CASE

SEE: http://the-trumpet-online.com/goes-church-goeth-nation-5-lessons-hovind-case/republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

By Coach Dave Daubenmire
May 21, 2015
NewsWithViews.com
Five Valuable Lessons from the Kent Hovind Case
Against incredible odds, Pastor Kent Hovind has won in Federal Court. In my mind, this was the biggest upset since David stoned Goliath. My sources tell me that citizen victory in Federal Court is exceedingly rare. One court observer even stated that it was the first time in 9 years that someone beat the government in the court of Pensacola. I don’t know about you, but I think something is terribly wrong with that. The government always winning is not justice.
Read what Forbes Magazine reported regarding the stunning victory.
I have been intimately and actively involved with the effort to free Kent from prison, and I rejoiced when I got word that the government had dropped all charges against him. Playing a part in helping to set an innocent man free was one of the most important and fulfilling things I have ever done in my life. But being up close and watching the dynamics of this saga unfold, I learned 5 highly valuable lessons that I would like to share:
1. Christians are the worst at eating their own. Kent Hovind spent 20 years visiting churches and sharing the Gospel as he proved Biblical Creation to be true. When he got in trouble with the government—initially the IRS—pastors and churches abandoned him and headed for the high grass. They didn’t want to be associated with a “tax-cheat” even though that was not what he was charged with. He spent 8.5 years in jail and those same pastors who had him speak from their pulpits would not defend him and help him regain his freedom. The dynamic duo of the Federal judge and the prosecutor sought to keep him in jail for the rest of his life, and even the “public defender” cooperated with his boss’s (judge) orders. Most of Kent’s “pastor” friends sat quietly and approvingly on the sidelines; some actually rooting for the government. They’ll show more grace to sodomites than they do one of their persecuted friends.
The amazing brief produced by www.lawandfreedom.com with the aid of thewww.USJF.net had the same impact on the court that the atom bomb had on Hiroshima. In less than 48 hours after the motion to dismiss had been filed, the entire case was dismissed. After nearly a year of harassment and false accusations against Pastor Hovind the Federal Prosecutor and Judge Margaret Casey Rodgers were forced to admit that what Pastor Hovind had been charged with was not a crime. Yes, you read that right. They were attempting to put him in jail for the rest of his life for something that was not a crime.
Even today I keep hearing from “Christians” who believe that Pastor Kent was guilty and was only getting “what he deserved.” And although it has been proven that he did nothing wrong, many “Christians” still want to see him punished.
Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that Kent was guilty of the “structuring” charges. Let’s also say he was a “tax-cheat.” Pastor Hovind has spent nearly 8.5 years in jail. Is there no grace available for him from his Christian brothers? Aren’t we all, thanks to Jesus, glad that we don’t “get what we deserve?”
2. Jurors Have a Great Responsibility and Possess Remarkable Power. Interviews with some of the jurors after the first trial revealed some very interesting information. It seems the initial vote was 6-6. The second vote was 10-2 to convict. The final vote was 11-1 to convict. One juror held out claiming that what Kent had done was not illegal. He would not relent, causing the jury to be ‘hung.” If he had given in, Pastor Hovind would have been sentenced to 20 additional years in prison…for mailing a legal document. His life would have been effectively over. Eleven jurors, the Federal Prosecutor and her team, the IRS court representative, and his own “public pretender” all thought Kent was guilty.
But one man said no. He stood his ground. Pastor Hovind almost spent the rest of his life in prison for something that isn’t even a crime. I wonder how often this happens to other defendants in the Federal court system.
3. Disobedience to Government Isn’t Necessarily Sin. Christians are taught today that to disobey the government is a “sin” and violates the teachings of the Apostle Paul found in Romans 13. This false teaching has put us in the position we are in today. Paul wrote 2/3 of the New Testament…most of it from jail. For a man who instructed us to “obey the authorities” he sure spent a lot of time disobeying his own instructions. “Obey God rather than men” is the true teaching of the Bible. The entire New Testament is filled with stories of men and women who stood up against “ungodly” edicts and authorities. What if the church had refused to permit prayer to be removed from the schools…or the Bible to be banned from education…or stood up in resistance to the slaughter of the unborn? WWJD? He already showed us HE would do.
People tell me that Jesus didn’t try to fight the government and we shouldn’t either. They show a great misunderstanding of the Scriptures. Jesus did not fight against the Romans because, as He told Pilate, “you have no power over me unless it had been given to you from on High.” But Jesus was a headache for the “religious leaders” of His day. The Pharisees went to Pilate because they said that “they had no power to put a man to death.” All Jews were under the authority of the religious leaders, not the Roman government. Jesus called them unflattering names and raised a rebellion against that evil religious system. He refused to “follow” them and the religious system foisted upon them by the religious thugs. Christianity, as well as America, was birthed out of righteous rebellion.
4. All “Nobodys” are Potential “Somebodys.” Kent Hovind is free today because of the efforts of “lay” Christians. The efforts of Rudy Davis,Racer XErnie Land and other “nobodies” won Pastor Hovind his freedom. Most Pastors and national religious leaders refused to get involved. They’re afraid of the government to whom they have yielded God’s authority. They have very little faith that God can or will still move today. They preach a message of fatalism that has stolen the precious faith from the hearts of the saints. But the Moms and Pops all over this nation partnered together to appeal to heaven for a miracle on Kent’s behalf. God honored and answered the prayers of His people. Most of our Christian leaders only seek the help of the Republicans.
One woman filed with the spirit of the anti-Christ, Madeline Murry, removed the influence of God from the minds of America’s children. How could this happen? Perhaps a better question to ask is how have Christians become so powerless against the forces of darkness? If one devil-filled woman could move the direction of a nation what could millions of people filled with the Holy spirit of God do against the evil spirits in high places? But we won’t fight. We’ve become convinced that we can’t win. We are convinced that God has given up on America. We won’t admit it, but we really believe the devil has won; that the forces of darkness are stronger than the children of the light. The sad reality is that we’ve lost because we have not fought. Our hope, courage, and faith, has been stolen from us by a defeatist, fatalistic, powerless Gospel spewing forth from America’s lukewarm pulpits.
5. The Salt and Light Brigade is making a difference. We used targeted prayer, targeted phone calls, and a clear targeted strategy to fight the forces of darkness. Our prayers weren’t scattered and directionless. Everyone prayed upon the same target, at the same time, for the same result. I am convinced that this “shock and awe” campaign was the death blow to the prosecution and their minions in the judicial system. This is the formula that we are going to employ all across this nation! Why don’t you join the Brigade and become part of a living, breathing organism that will shake the very foundations of this nation?
The reason there is no power in America is because there is no power in the church. There is disobedience in the world because there is disobedience in the church. There is a lack of faith in the world because there is a lack of faith in the church. The President is powerful because the pulpit is impotent. America is off course because the church has lost its sense of direction. As goes the church, so goes the nation.
However, all is not lost. God is not the one who’s dead—only His followers are. It’s time to wake up. Stop following the blind guides.
