To learn what will happen next the specific locations and nature of the impending disasters the occult societies have planned for the United States — there’s no better public source of information than the prophecies of Chuck Pierce.  These prophecies should be taken seriously, NOT because Chuck Pierce and other self-anointed “apostles” in the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network are prophets of God, but because they have advance insider knowledge of these man-orchestrated events.

“Dr.” Charles Pierce is the President of Glory of Zion International Ministries and Vice President of C. Peter Wagner's Global Harvest Ministries, which is the umbrella organization over 70 International Prayer Networks.  Chuck Pierce is also on the Executive Board of the International Coalition of Apostles, Peter Wagner's Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, the International Society of Deliverance Ministers and serves as National Apostle of the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network (USSPN). 

Part II of THE MEROVINGIAN SIGNATURE OF THE HURRICANES cites Chuck Pierce's “Word over Florida” in February of 2004, in which he prophesied that “waters of breakthrough” would begin in Florida and that these floods would be across the United States by December of 2005.  This so-called “prophecy” is coming to pass, so far with stunning accuracy.

As we monitored various newsletters of Peter Wagner's U.S. Strategic Prayer Network over the year, other “prophecies” by Chuck Pierce were noted to have curious references to specific U.S. cities and states.  Turns out that, in 2001, Pierce coauthored a book of such prophecies with Dutch Sheets, titled RELEASING THE PROPHETIC DESTINY OF A NATION (2002).  Apostles Pierce and Sheets then went on a 50-state tour to
enlist pastors and their churches in a strategic warfare campaign to break the grip of demonic strongholds over the United States.  Among many spiritual warfare techniques taught by Pierce and Sheets, Christians were directed by these modern apostles to call forth “angels” to bring down the mighty events that are now happening in the U.S. 


Chuck Pierce has “prophesied” that the next cities to be struck with major disasters will be: ST. LOUIS, DETROIT, LOS ANGELES and SAN FRANCISCO.  These prophecies are found in his books, newsletters and were recently relayed by Pierce on the Benny Hinn program of September  26-27, 2005.  There a mesmerized audience of Christian pastors did not seem to question that Chuck Pierce receives these messages from the Lord a fallacy which presumes that only God can create and direct these destructive forcesand that they are falling on the U.S. as divine judgment and/or spiritual purification.


It is unlikely that the pastors (and the vast majority of Christians) have ever heard that technology has been developed to control the weather, and that this technology, now possessed by the U.S. military, is so advanced that it is possible to create and steer hurricanes, to trigger earthquakes and volcanoes, and to create other seemingly natural catastrophes to bring about an anti-Christian New World Order. For more information on this type of weather control, see THE MEROVINGIAN SIGNATURE OF THE HURRICANES, Part I.

We think it is no coincidence that the Global Harvest Ministries of Wagner and Pierce, Dutch Sheets'
Springs Harvest Fellowship and the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM), which oversees and coordinates all military operations in North America, are all located in Colorado Springs!!!  In fact, Colorado Springs is now the home of more than 100 Christian ministries and organizations as well as five military bases: Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base, The United States Air Force Academy, and NORAD.  NORTHCOM is located at Fort Peterson AFB on Cheyenne Mountain which is also a center of Homeland Security Operations.  Sometimes called the "military-religious industrial complex of Colorado Springs," there are many signs that this area is the central command of the military religious Order of the Knights of the Temple, the Knights Templar.


The following is compilation of selected prophecies by Chuck Pierce interspersed with our own commentary on the agenda of the occult establishment from which Pierce clearly receives his information.  Please note that Watch Unto Prayer comments are [bracketed and shaded in GREEN]





Transformation of America Conference – Awaken the Nation

February 19, 2004

Portion of Chuck Pierce’s “word over Florida” at TRANSFORMATION AMERICA – Awaken the Nation, Thursday, February 19, 2004:

    “I am mounting up the waters of breakthrough for this nation. I have brought you here to this state because part of the mounting up of the waters is coming this hour from this particular state. I have gathered you together here because from this state you will cause the waters to rise again. Many will try to put their finger in this water just as the boy who tried to hold back the water stuck his finger in the dike, but I would say this water that is mounting over this nation cannot be stopped.
    “There is a mounting enemy that is rising up at this time. Therefore I have drawn you together for a day such as this. In this place and at this time I will release an anointing that will cause the enemy that is mounting to become confused. The voice of the enemy will taunt, and taunt, and taunt again. The voice of the enemy will become very strong beginning in September through October. But even now that which you release in the heavens will begin to neutralize that which will come forth at harvest time.
    “Harvest time is upon you, and because harvest time is mounting I must have a people with a harvest mind. I have brought you here to bring forth the first fruit of that harvest anointing, and to cause your mind to shift into a mind of increase. Many have come and said, ‘But the enemy has surrounded me and besieged me. I even feel like I am in a strait jacket.’ During these days I will untie that strait jacket and your hands will go free. 

    “Hear the sound as the waters mount up, for the waters are mounting and the wall that is being built against My righteousness is cracking. And within 22 months there will be floods across this land.


[MEANING THE U.S. . . by December 2005!  It seems the U.S. will be become the New Atlantis, literally.  Which gives new meaning to the "Oceania" theme in the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games.  Or "Oceania" in Orwell's "1984".  In 1856, the American poet Walt Whitman wrote to his fellow occultist, Ralph Waldo Emerson, that the United States is a "work in progress" which would have to die for the Masonic Plan of world conquest to come to pass:

"America, having duly conceived, bears out of herself offspring of her own to do the workmanship wanted. To freedom, to strength, to poems, to personal greatness, it is never permitted to rest, not a generation or part of a generation. To be ripe beyond further increase is to prepare to die. The architects of These States laid their foundations, and passed to further, spheres. What they laid is a work done; as much more remains. Now are needed other architects, whose duty is not less difficult, but perhaps more difficult. Each age forever needs architects. America is not finished, perhaps never will be; now America is a divine true sketch. There are Thirty-Two States sketched—the population thirty millions. In a few years there will be Fifty States. Again in a few years there will be A Hundred States, the population hundreds of millions, the freshest and freest of men. Of course such men stand to nothing less than the freshest and freest expression."  (Leaves of Grass, 1856)]




Dear Leaders:

In late August I was in Louisiana for a series of meetings promoted by Roger and Charlotte Merschbrock (our USSPN State Apostolic Coordinators for Louisiana) along with Larry and Brenda Bizette. Several of the prophetic words I released might be of particular interest to you at this time with the approach of Hurricane Ivan.

Chuck D. Pierce

August 29, 2004

After Chuck discussed traveling from Wisconsin directly to Louisiana, he prophesied:

"From the North to the South I am ready to awaken two winds that will awake the nation. There are resisting forces in both states that will cause our nation to not move forward. Go up and down and decree the wind of God will awaken in both places. The states will shift in a new way [repeal Posse Comitatus] or the nation will not shift and will go backwards." [states' rights]

Later when addressing the
Saul structure in Baton Rouge [Gov. Blanco on way out], Chuck prophesied:

"How the Saul structure collapses will bring Baton Rouge again to national attention. That alignment within it will collapse. A new demonstration with a new blueprint will be seen. This will be known as a meeting house. This will be known as a place where the Ark of the Covenant has dwelt.  This will be known as a refuge place
. The WIND and WATER will rise in the midst of New Orleans. Many from the south will come north for refuge. Prepare. Prepare now for winds and water that will surprise you. I will renew the pattern not fully seen before. Worship will be here, and birthed in a new way from here. Prepare! Prepare! Prepare! Shift! Saul will be no more. [Blanco out] David will arise from this day forward. [Jewish governor] The wind from the south will begin to blow. Watch for the effects. This will purify the land and bring great change." [Katrina means "purify"]


[New Orleans is now called "Baghdad on the Bayou," being under total militarization. Will Baton Rouge be the next federally militarized city?  There do seem to be big plans in the works for Baton Rougea new demonstration . . . a new blueprint . . . will be known as a 'meeting house' . . . a place where the Ark of the Covenant has dwelt . . . as a refuge place . . . Saul will be no more.  David will arise . . . worship will be there . . . birthed in a new way . . .   This mixing of military and Biblical metaphors is confusing. What does Chuck Pierce really mean??  We know the Ark of the Covenant contained the LAW, so perhaps he is referring to the Noahide Laws In a Biblical context, the term "meeting house" sounds like the "Tent of Meeting" as the NIV renders the Tabernacle in the book of Exodus.  The KJV, however, correctly calls it the "tent of the congregation" (no caps).  "Meeting" instead of "congregation" seems a little too much like what we saw on TV at NORTHCOM during Hurricane Rita.  Strategy meetings, not worship, although CP says there will be worship, "birthed in a new way" however.  So he could be using Biblical jargon to create a religious covering for the military takeover of a U.S. state capital.  If so, Baton Rouge will have the dubious honor of becoming the first central command for that soon-to-be militarized region of the U.S. under NORTHCOM. One Watchman made a good case for how the Feds will justify declaring martial law in Baton Rouge:


9/29/05 - "Baton Rouge now has three times the population from all those who came from New Orleans. Things are very hectic and stressful there; food and gas shortages, etc. I wouldn't doubt that they would like to cause Blanco more stress. If there is an uprising, it may begin in Baton Rouge. There may be more significance to Baton Rouge than we can see right now. It is the capital of the state, and also has it's own very large population of poor blacks even before the evacuees arrived by the tens of thousands. It is about 70-80 miles from New Orleans...and it's Crawling with Military right now. They already say that Blanco and the LA government are incompetent, so this [an uprising] would give them the perfect excuse to take over their entire state government."]

Then in Alexandria that night Chuck shared from Song of Solomon 4:16 (Awake the north wind; come, o south wind. Blow upon the garden of this nation). [Operation Garden Plot?] He led the people to pray for the south wind to come. This south wind would be a purifying wind, cause corruption to be blown on and cause corruption to shake and initiate a righteous move starting with the children, then moving to the youth. We were to watch the government [Blanco] and the Catholic Church shake [Mystery Babylon/Rev.17:9], and watch New Orleans change. [poor blacks, Catholics out / wealthy oil cabal & upscale casinos in / Gov. Blanco is Roman Catholic]

Then Chuck prophesied, "I will put a mantle on African Americans in this land. That which was brought in through parts of this state and held people captive will let go. I will send the wind up the Mississippi River and this wind will shake Missouri. You will see the land shake in Missouri because of the wind from Louisiana. [earthquake on the New Madrid Fault] Get ready. Don't brace yourself. Throw yourself up. Get ready for the new is coming. Every place I blow on will shake. The wind is coming on Louisiana and it will shake the entire state. I will fill churches. The south purifying wind of My holiness will sweep across Louisiana. People will be on their faces in malls and shopping centers. Boldness will come upon My people in Louisiana. There is a worship call. Get ready - the wind is about to blow. The river is changing courses. You will be one of the first that changes."


Blessings, [?]

Chuck D. Pierce


[California and Alaska are reputed to be the locations where most U.S. earthquakes occur, however, the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in North America have been along the New Madrid Fault in the Central U.S.  In 1811-12 there were 4 catastrophic quakes within a 3 month period, which were estimated to have been about 8.0 and higher if measured on the modern Richter Scale. Estimates of approximately 6.0-6.2 earthquakes along this fault occurred in 1843 and 1895 respectively, as well as 7 quakes over 5.0.  At the time of the 1811-12 earthquakes, St. Louis, MO and other major cities along the fault line were sparsely populated, but an 8.0 quake in 2005 or later would result in enormous loss of life and billions of dollars of property damage. The New Madrid Fault straddles the Mississippi River from northeast Arkansas, through southeast Missouri, western Tennessee, western Kentucky to southern Illinois. A major earthquake along this fault line would therefore divide the U.S. laterally and disable ground transportation between the Eastern and Western states.  Since the Eastern states are heavily dependent on agricultural commodities produced in the West, Mexico and South America, their lifeline would be severed when the bridges crossing the Mississippi River collapse.  In fact, all of the so-called natural disasters that are now occurring in the U.S. are strategically located to paralyze the transportation systems of the nation.]





Chuck Pierce / Letter to Intercessors

September 21, 2005


“On February 20, 2005, I spoke in Houston.  Here is a portion of the word that came forth: ‘Houston is a target for the enemy because you are a great city, a great port, a great city for revival, a great city for commerce. You are like Tyre in the Bible. [see: Masonic Legend of Hiram Abiff]  There is a crisis coming toward Houston that will move the city into a different dimension of God's presence.’

“And the Lord said to me, ‘Houston is going to be a place where My angels [evil spirits] are flooding in this year.  They are going to flood in, and come in through every gate this year. [Judges 5:8]  My angels are coming in through the port areas of Houston.  Go to every port point this year and invite the angelic forces in.  [Christians inviting chaotic spirits into Houston] If you will do that over the next ten months you will see change by the end of the year all across the city. [huge energy crisis] I am ready for the angels to come in. 


[Chuck Pierce is teaching ritual magic, summoning chaotic spirits to wreak massive destruction on the United States.  See "Strategic Level Sorcery."  Cf. George Bush Inaugural Address: “Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm?... This work continues. {the American Revolution} The story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm."]


“I have chosen Houston as the port city where I will rest My presence in the midst of a strange happening in this nation.  I will cause My presence to be established in this city. [another militarized city] I will cause enemies of My Spirit who have resisted My presence in the past to welcome My presence this year.’ [Republic of Texas is part of the controlled-opposition militia movement]

“The Lord then said, ‘There's a shift that's gone on here. You've shifted.  You are (now) moving from a heavenly realm. You have moved out of a vacuum of unbelief.  It wasn't darkness - it was a void - something that has been confused, that had no form, that looked like it would remain formless from now until a future time.  You've moved that out of the atmosphere here.  Now you have brought into the atmosphere a faith dimension that has restored My covenant back to My people in this city.’ [Noahide Laws?] (The Lord then said that Houston would shift in July.)  ‘Prepare yourself, for you will influence the nation in a time of crisis.  You've endured the testing of covenant with each other.  You've watched each other make horrible mistakes and yet you covenant with Me, and My blood has overcome those mistakes. You have watched some let go of things.  You watched some go in wrong directions.  But I've brought it back full circle.  You have watched certain things end.  Don't judge how they ended; I was ending certain things so I can begin again. You have endured a covenant-breaking structure that has resisted My move in this city. You have endured and prevailed against a covenant-breaking spirit that overcame past generations.  Now you have overcome that spirit.  Just as Moses made a mistake and I restored his call, I've now come back full circle and said, ‘Now it's My Time!’  Follow Me in a new way, confront your enemies in a new way, (and) move forward in a new way.  For I am going to rest in the city ... and you will know My Presence has come to rest in this city.’  [Houston learned from New Orleans/LA officials to cooperate with the Feds]

“The Lord also said, ‘And you will know I'm going to shake Galveston in a way that it has not been shaken since the beginning of the last century.  But this is a time for Me to come full circle.  And this time, Galveston will begin to run forward into My presence in Houston.  And that which is resisting My presence in Galveston will be overtaken.  I am raising up the Body in Houston to receive an outpouring of My presence. As I flood the people of Galveston to Houston, I will return them with a flood of My presence.

“Faith is now your guide.  For faith will explode in the very hearts of this city and ten surrounding smaller cities of this area.  This will be a faith explosion that will begin to occur because victory has entered Houston and you have gathered to receive a new anointing of grace.  Walk forth with Me from this place, for I am dressing you in victory.  You are turning upward.  And although you do not know where this updraft will take you, ride the wind with Me and the waves will not overtake you.’”

Benny Hinn Ministries' Pastor’s Conference


Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation by Chuck Pierce & Dutch Sheetz

Future War of the Church by Chuck Pierce


Chuck Pierce prophecy to Benny Hinn: “...I say now your call is to change entire city structures, I say the sword of mine is now resting in your hand get ready for you will divide this land [New Madrid fault along the Mississippi River] that I might enter in again, saith the Lord. Just shout, he’s coming in again…” [end of United States / NORTHCOM divides US into 10 districts]


On August 12, 2005, God told Chuck Pierce: “Call forth the refuge cities throughout this nation. [sustainable communities or death camps] Call them forth on the East Coast... the West Coast and the Gulf Coast NOW... God is calling forth refuge cities throughout our nation... because we are in for a season…

     “This is a book that can be passed on from generation to generation…because the Lord told me that you war with your prophetic word… The Lord told me… ‘I want you to go to the north and I want you to agree with me that there is a North wind that is coming upon this land. We went there to Minnesota and stood at the head of the Mississippi and we decreed that the North wind of the Lord would begin to come to bring change to our nation. Then he said, I want you to go south and I want you to go to Baton Rouge and I want you to make a decree that the South wind that would come would be a purifying wind. And during the time of our gathering and during the time of our decreeing there, all of a sudden this purifying wind will begin to bring water that will cover New Orleans and purify this land. It wasn’t a wind that could be stopped, it wasn’t water that could be stopped. It was very, very clear, it was a very precise word. Matter of fact, after that Hurricane Ivan began to turn toward New Orleans, but it was something about this that was different. That’s why, when the Hurricane Katrina was just a tropical storm, that was coming across Florida, all of a sudden Steve Schultz [founder/director of Elijah List] found this word and he recognized that Katrina’s name meant “purify.” And he said this word is this now, in other words, water was coming, water would cover New Orleans. It could not be stopped… Yet we must know there is a purification taking place. …It’s not something we want to watch, but we know that loss and trauma can also purify. Loss can produce resurrection. 


[Congressman Richard Baker, R-LA: “We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn’t do it, but God did.”]


    “But here was a very interesting thing that happened on August 12… The spirit of God fell on us and he said ‘Call forth the refuge cities now…’ Well a year ago on August 29, when we were in Baton Rouge, and he was showing us the wind and the water that would come, he told us that Baton Rouge would become the model refuge city. He said the people would come north… He said Baton Rouge would become a refuge city. Now when he fell on us on August 12…he said ‘Call out the refuge cities of this nation.’… Call them forth on the East Coast, call them forth on the West Coast, call them forth on the Gulf Coast. They must arise and God emphatically said NOW…. Because we are in for a season of not only the North wind… because he said, Once the North wind, you call it forth, and the South wind begins to come and New Orleans starts being purified, you are going to see St. Louis begin to shake [on New Madrid fault]... God will draw forth out of the very center of this nation a breaking forth of His glory.  We will see the glory of God rising out of St. Louis in a way that will shake us all because the spirit of God’s going to invade that city. Now I want to tell you that if you are from there to get ready, there is an invasion [of refugees?] that is working up towards you [from Detroit? see below], there is an invasion that is working down towards you [from Louisiana?], and across the middle of this nation there is going to be a shaking.


[The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a Masonic monument representing the Royal Arch Degree of Freemasonry.  This stainless steel Arch was constructed in 1965 by Eero Saarinen and is the second largest monument in the world, rising 630 ft. high from a 60-ft. foundation and spanning 630 ft. at ground level.  Its classic weighted catenary curve sways 1/2" to 1" in 20 mph winds.  Rooted in the bedrock next to the Mississippi River, the Arch would function as a tuning fork in the event of a large flying object impacting it, such as a plane, and the vibrations would trigger a great earthquake.  Presciently it seems, a 1960's comic book featured Captain Marvel defeating a monster by using the Gateway Arch as a tuning fork!  In a real event, however, not only would the Mighty Mississippi overflow its banks, but the Missouri River and the Ohio River which flow into the Mississippi north and south of St. Louis, would back up, causing massive flooding.  With all of these occurring simultaneously, the surge over the central U.S. could resemble a tsunami.]


Call forth the refuge cities. And do you know who administers those cities? [NORTHCOM/FEMA/DHS]  You, I, that's why God's called you here... It's now time for the Church to shift back to the blood and the cross [the Rose Croix?] and it's time for the harvest to come in. The healing evangelist mantle that's been there is now being extended to the Body of Christ.”





September 27, 2005

Benny Hinn Ministries' Pastor’s Conference


Benny Hinn: “Chuck Pierce is a prophet of God….”


Chuck Pierce: “Now hear the word the Lord has given to me. And its found in Luke, chapter 14. And it was the word where he said to his disciples to leave all and follow me… [mentions refugees from New Orleans]. On August 12…this word went out across our nation, tell my people to get ready for they must have the same heart as my people had a Passover.  When I say move, they must move and move quickly! Not only am I giving them the ability to plunder the enemy’s camp, but I’m giving them the ability to move quickly and hide themselves from disaster so I can draw them out again so they be used to bring forth my promises into the earth realm. So if you are in the trauma of losing and having to let go and leave what you had along the Gulf Coast…God says you will be used mightily in days ahead if you will submit to me during this time to allow me to reform your spirit. [New Apostolic Reformation / Gnostic occultism]  Hear my words, I am ready to reform your spirit, saith the Lord. For many things have crowded in upon you but I am reforming the spirit of my people to be able to hold my spirit [demon possession] and to stand in the face of darkness and decree that darkness will have to flee… Now the Lord says here how can you come after me unless you are willing to leave everything, mother, wife, sister, brother [compliance will facilitate transporting Christians to death camps], a very, very hard word from our Lord. He said you can’t be my disciple if you won’t pick up your cross… your cross, the one I’m giving you... If you’re going to war, you need to count the cost…

    “When the Lord showed me this passage he showed me the next three years ahead [first half of Tribulation period]. He said to me, I am sending, I am teaching my people again, they will learn again the power of my cross. They will learn again the power of the cross they’re carrying. Not only are we entering into three years of learning, but we are entering into three years of going and building, new and fresh, the model for the next three generations. We are entering a time of acceleration; we are entering a time of building…you are going into a building season, even if you’ve lost everything in the past, God says, this now becomes your building season… and these next three years, war escalates, internally war escalates [civil disorder in cities], and in the escalation of this war season…we are building the model for the Church for the future [Esoteric Church]... but if we’re building the model the next three years, the gates of hell cannot withstand us.  Tell your neighbor God is preparing you to stand against hell.

     “Now I want to say to you…tonight…times are escalating, we are in seasons of escalation… There is a cost, I’m asking you to count… you don’t know enough to make it in the next three years…you can’t make it. Don’t let any religious spirit [KJV-Only/Bible doctrine] convince you that you have what it takes [Jesus Christ] and you can’t learn something [Gnosticism] about what it takes to walk in victory in these next three years.  We are in shifting times [paradigm shift], get ready. God is very, very specific when he speaks. Prophets are getting, God is doing a refining work in his prophetic voice so he will be very specific when it’s time for Detroit to come ablaze.  For Los Angeles, to begin to seethe in violence to warn. [urban race riots after earthquake, more below]


[This is not the first time Pierce has prophesied that Detroit would be set ablaze.  Starting in November of 2004, his prophecies have been issuing forth to the Michigan USSPN and on Nov. 24, 2004, prophet Pierce predicted: "God is going to have revival here in the Detroit metropolitan area and it will be filled with flames of revival that will create an international and national stir; the power of God moving in this region." Judging by his other prophecies, "flames of revival" is a religious euphemism for a major fiery catastrophe in Detroit.  In 2005, numerous conferences were conducted in Detroit by Pierce and other prophetic "apostles" to "break open" the heavens so the angels can invade Detroit and bring this fire to the city. 


Detroit, Michigan is the automotive capital of the world, where cars, trucks, military and agricultural vehicles are manufactured as well as steel for raw materials. The headquarters of American Motors, GM, Ford, Chrysler are all located in Detroit.  Dozens of steamship lines operate out of the city, shipping materials worldwide via the St. Lawrence Seaway. Numerous railroads, airlines, and truck lines also combine to make the city a transportation center. Should Detroit be destroyed, transportation production in the U.S. would be crippled.  Also located in Detroit is the largest Muslim community in the U.S.  When Chuck Pierce stated that Detroit was going to "come ablaze," the impression given was that this would be a nuclear holocaust.  It seems plausible that a suitcase bomb or a few could be detonated and blamed on the Muslim community there.  This would accomplish more than one agenda --- it would provide a convenient scapegoat for the crime, exterminate the nucleus of Islam in the U.S., and further vilify the Muslims to justify more military incursions in the Middle East. 


Another thought. . .  More hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico would send additional tens of thousands of refugees streaming northward into the central U.S. states.  And a nuclear holocaust in Detroit would send survivors fleeing south into the central states.  Should these two events occur before the New Madrid earthquake, the swelling population of the central American states would mean even greater loss of life.]


    “These are times God is saying to the Church, wait a minute, come with me, come away to see, because the wind he asked me to unlock wasn’t the wind to destroy New Orleans, wasn’t the wind to sweep down the Mississippi from the north, and shake St. Louis.  He said, you go north and you go south and you decree I blow upon this garden [Garden Plot] for its next history.  He said you decree that the wind that needs to be released to open up the fragrance of my people in America will now be released… And the Lord would say to begin to watch even beginning mid-September to October 15 as economic systems begin to shift and begin to be rearranged. [high gas prices] For I say to you by November there will be a rearrangement of the economic system of this land saith the Lord. And I say to you get ready for I say also governments will begin to shake by February in days ahead in the year coming for I say I am extending my covering over people and over lands [US to be merged with Canada and Mexico]. I say this is a year to put your tent peg down, I say I’m shifting away that which could be shifted away so you begin to plant yourself in solid ground, saith the Lord. I say to you, get ready to connect and unify as my body for you have tried to bring forth a false unity, you have tried to communicate, but now I will create unity in my people by my spirit, saith the Lord…  Gird up your loins for victory…and in the third year ahead I say the fruit of harvest will be brought into the storehouse.” [Mid-Tribulation/Mark of the Beast]


[So Chuck Pierce's “Word over the United States” seems to be economic collapse.  But will his and other “anointed apostolic ministries” survive the coming depression and be able to minister to the poor and starving people after they have left their possessions and family in obedience to Jesus?  Will Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets and Peter Wagner also leave everything behind in Colorado Springs???  Well, maybe they have other plans...

Colorado's Lost Treasures

   "Treasures - Chuck Pierce gave the word in 2004 that Colorado is a treasure in this nation. Chuck went on in his word to say, 'Let the treasure of this state be mined properly and brought forth this season. Pray for what has been blocking the mining of the treasure in this state, both old and new, to come forth and the treasure of this state will be seen throughout this land.' We took this word seriously and prayed all of last year regarding the treasures and resources of Colorado. We will continue that prayer for these treasures to be unlocked and come into the hands of the righteous.
    "Colorado's Lost Treasures - February 2005 edition of Colorado Country Life (magazine) I quote Tom Noel, a Colorado historian, 'The deeper you dig into Colorado's history, the more treasures you'll find.' And he is not just speaking metaphorically, either. A sidebar or the article reads, 'More lost gold and silver mines, buried caches of outlaw loot, and long hidden hordes of Spanish and French treasures exist in Colorado than in any of the remaining United States...'
    "In Chad Taylor's prophetic word for this year he stated, 'MOTHER LODE IN THE ROCKIES. I will unlock the secret treasures in the Rockies. I will anoint the science of excavation and paleontology, revealing an end time surplus of oil. I will give eyes to the blind and they will see My hidden treasures. The Rocky Mountains will cascade with My provisions says the Lord.'
    "An article in the Rocky Mountain newspaper, February 1, 2005 confirming this prophetic word read, Colorado's mines and wells produce mother lode in '04. The $8.74 billion estimate in Colorado's natural gas, coal, oil and mineral production in 2004 was up about 44 percent from the previous year. More than two-thirds of the total value in 2004, or $6 billion, came from natural gas. Colorado is estimated to have produced a record 1.1 trillion cubic feet of gas in 2004. Coal production hit record high in 2004 and there was an increase in gold and molybdenum in 2004 over recent years."

Do you suppose the "Christian ministries" and Military complex in Colorado Springs will share this treasure of gold, silver, natural gas, oil, and coal with the homeless and suffering masses of America?  We have no doubt.  Returning to Chuck and Benny...] 


Benny Hinn [wearing $1,000 suit]: “Did you hear what this man of God said?… Brother Chuck…I want to ask you something…you know prophets often speak in parables. This man of God gave us something I’ve never heard. Did the Lord show you that before the fragrance there’s got to be judgment?


Chuck Pierce: “He showed me purification. See, God only judges to restore. [New Age/New World Order] He’s a restorative God and he said, if you’ll call forth the wind north, and call forth the wind south, and then I actually saw by the spirit New Orleans being covered with water because the purifying wind that…would come, New Orleans would be the first fruits of purification. Now you have to look at that, in that city, it is the first fruit of purification.”


Benny Hinn: “What’s next?”


Chuck Pierce: “There were two other cities God showed me.  One was Houston, which I believe is beginning to turn, I want to say that. Then he showed me Los Angeles. I’m very concerned, I had a dream on November 11 [occult numerology, 11/11] at the beginning of November of last year about California. I went out, I shared very specifically, California has rallied in prayer but we’re seeing a resisting force come to California right now. [same-sex marriage vetoed] I’m not here to announce earthquake, and there’s been so many prophecies there, but I am concerned about Los Angeles because one of the chapters that I wrote in 2001 was lawlessness would arise. [urban riots] Now I think we need to see in New Orleans what lawlessness looks like, so we get a vision of it. Lawlessness has a root of fatherlessness. I believe Los Angeles is in a very precarious way. [unstable/San Andreas Fault] I believe San Francisco is in a precarious way and I want to announce to the West Coast, get your refuge cities ready, because God has a heart to unlock his garden, his covenant blessings. [death and destruction] Now I want to say it very positive because God is perfect in what he does. God wants to unlock the fragrance of his people. Get ready for the change to come upon this land. [Transformation]


Benny Hinn: “Chuck, I want to ask you something. When we read the prophets we find that God sent his people, Israel, to Babylon to cleanse the land from idol worship. [destruction of RCC/Rev. 17] Is that what you see?”


[Benny is insinuating that the United States is Babylon the Great so that when the U.S. falls, Christians will think it's the fulfillment of Revelation 18 at mid-Tribulation.  This is a key counterfeit that will set the stage for other counterfeits during the Tribulation Period.  [See: "Heeding Bible Prophecy: Understanding Satan's Plan to Counterfeit the Second Coming of Jesus Christ & The Restoration of All Things"]


Chuck Pierce: “That’s absolutely right. You see, God won’t allow thrones of iniquity to continue to be built… Every throne that is not ascending into my throne room I’m going to topple. (applause) There’s nothing we can do about that.  God is a loving God and he made you to worship him and he doesn’t want you worshipping things that are going to harm you and send you into an eternity of destruction…. I hear the Lord saying, I’m bringing a midnight anointing upon this land so that my people will begin to arise at midnight [midnight raids by FEMA?] and no longer fear the darkness that has held them…and they will say, let the light shine [Lucifer = Light Bearer] and disperse the darkness.”





JOHN MARK POOL is giving out similar “prophecies” of global and national disaster.  The following information about John Mark Pool came from another Watchmen:

When reading about the "prophecy" these folks had made that you described in your Hurricane article, I wondered if you had heard the one from some "prophet" named John Mark Pool? I had seen him on Sid Roth late night Saturday 8/13/2005 - before there ever was a Katrina.  Because he mentioned more disasters coming to the coasts, on the show, I looked up his website the next day.  He gave a specific New Orleans prophecy at his website evidently at the end of the year 2004/early 2005.  I didn't believe it when I read it because, I thought, "c'mon, how often does a hurricane hit New Orleans?"  I didn't see the news much the next week until like two nights before Katrina hit, and I was really flabbergasted when I heard the news, and remembered this "prophecy" which I had just read less than two weeks prior.   -- Later I looked into who William Branham is...evidently he had an "angel" who gave him his info... and this John Mark Pool's mother was a student/associate of Branham and she had been a "prophetess" and before she died she "passed on her office of prophecy" to her son, John Mark Pool.  He relayed the story about his mother on the Sid Roth show that night.  Mark is a tall lanky guy, seems very humble, but if his prophecies come from the same source as Branham...???

Anyway, here's his prophecy re: the 3rd Quarter of 2005, which included New Orleans, and my notes about it which I finally typed on 8/22/05. . .

Prophet Mark Pool was on Sid Roth late Saturday, 8/13/05 (@ midnight, so I guess that is actually 8/14/05).  ...During the last few minutes of the show, this is what Mark had to say for the USA for the upcoming 3rd quarter of 2005:

Sid:  What's going to happen in the United States THIS YEAR that God is showing you?
Mark:  I see in my spirit... hear from God, I see for the 3rd quarter of the year, you're going to see a major expansion, financial marketplace, those who have made investments, things that are happening, they are going to come to pass, full circles are coming to completion.  There's a major shaking going on in the world right now, and anything that can be shaken will be shaken and anything that's remaining is going to be God's.  He has a way of getting our attention, and I can assure you that is about to happen for our country.

Sid:  Any natural disasters do you see?  Quickly...
Yes.  I saw fire coming from heaven on to the earth, and I saw a tsunami flood through hurricanes and floods coming actually to the coast of the Southern part of United States and the Eastern part, somewhere along the coastline.  I've been praying over the West Coast because the coast lines are set-up for disaster right now is what I see.

Mark Pool's own website.  They are located in Baker, Louisiana [a suburb of Baton Rouge]. At his site he has a long page of his Annual Prophetic & Rhema Word for the entire year of 2005, which he wrote in January of 2005.  Below are snippets from it regarding the "natural disasters" for 2005 in the USA:

    "On the other hand, I saw other circles that will cause much devastation. I saw many large hurricanes coming to the south central, and the extreme Eastern USA, especially the mid and upper Atlantic seaboard. The recent earthquakes, floods and hurricanes are only to increase upon the earth as this year will experience even more catastrophes both in the USA and countries that purposefully denounce and persecute citizens who believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord by whom all humans must believe in order to have access to the only one true Jehovah God. [...]
    "This morning I heard the abundance of a mighty earthquake having just occurred in the heavenlies. A major shift is taking place in God¹s realm of the spiritual and the supernatural. Yet again, I was overwhelmed that I felt He impressed during this time that our country will experience soon what I saw in the spiritual - major earthquakes and extreme flooding. Flooding was seen in the central and the Southern United States. I saw New Orleans literally 20 feet underwater across the main downtown area. At this time of flooding in New Orleans, I saw it as a sewer full of debris and every form of garbage floating around and swirling in the flood. The French Quarter will be wiped out in the flood. Bourbon Street will be abandoned. Alligators will be swimming where dens of iniquity once abounded.
"Sin¹s investors will let go of the territory. They reside in other areas and will be seeing this as a place of unstable investment for future plans of sin. God¹s Kingdom investors will step in and be allowed to bid on properties abandoned by the sin investors.  Then the superdome will be available to purchase for 1/10th of a cent on the dollar! This will one day be called the "Glory Dome" as a move of God will be based out of it and make it a "Healing and Restoration Center" grabbing worldwide attention. This Glory Dome will go on continually on a 24/7 basis. [...]
    "There is a season on its way, however that is a season that comes from destruction in our land. This is a setup for our country, America, to again become aware that God is Jehovah, and He alone is able to bring shaking, earthquakes, and thick clouds of smoke, lightening and leveling winds with accompanying torrential floods. Yet He is Jehovah God, and He can in the same instant, if the people repent, calm the raging sea, stay the wind and rain, stop the lightening in mid-strike and bring peace for His creation. They will again behold Him in all His glory as we become still and know that He is God!"





An Empire Wilderness: Travels into America's Future by Robert D. Kaplan

    “With the same prescience and eye for telling detail that distinguished his bestselling Balkan Ghosts, Robert Kaplan now explores his native country, the United States of America. His starting point: the conviction that America is a country not in decline but in transition, slowly but inexorably shedding its identity as a monolithic nation-state and assuming a radically new one.
    “An America whose wealthy communities become wealthier and more fortress-like as they become more closely linked to the world's business capitals than to the desolate ghettoes next door. An America where the political boundaries between the states—and between the U.S. and Canada and Mexico—are becoming increasingly blurred, betokening a vast open zone for trade, commerce, and cultural interaction, the nexus of tomorrow's transnational world. Never nostalgic or falsely optimistic, bracingly unafraid of change and its consequences, Kaplan paints a startling portrait of post-Cold War America—a great nation entering the final, most uncertain phase of its history. Here is travel writing with the force of prophecy.
    “President Clinton cannot stop talking about Robert D. Kaplan's cover story in The Atlantic Monthly, White House aides say… Clinton was so impressed he ordered an interagency study of the issues. Clinton also devoured Kaplan's recent book Balkan Ghosts.” –U.S. News & World Report

    “Another exercise I looked in on involved a humanitarian emergency in Memphis and St. Louis after a major earthquake along the Mississippi Valley's ‘New Madrid’ fault line, where a series of big quakes did in fact occur in 1811 and 1812. More earthquakes are expected, and buildings in Memphis and St. Louis have not generally been constructed to withstand major tremors. This exercise tested the army's ability to work with NGOs (nongovernmental organizations, or private relief agencies), as it has had to do in the Third World.
    “It was assumed that there would be civil disorder after the quake. ‘Martial law has rarely been declared in the United States,’ noted Lieutenant Colonel Marvin Chandler. ‘That's another thing we look at.’ Many times in the course of my visit to Leavenworth I heard discussion of the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids the National Guard to act as a local police force once it has been federalized by the army in a civil emergency. The implication was that turbulence within the United States might one day require the act to be repealed. ‘The future is icky,’ said Lieutenant Colonel Chandler, showing me a cartoon of a cow, representing an awkward, slow-moving army, trying to negotiate a series of mud puddles that represent natural catastrophes, political breakdowns, riots, and nuclear blackmail, both foreign and domestic.”



R.I.P. Posse Comitatus
Kurt Nimmo, Another Day in the Empire
September 19, 2005

    "It was Representative Ron Paul of Texas who read into the Congressional Record on June 25, 1997—well before the malfeasance of George Bush, the Constitution-bashing Patriot Act, and the reckless so-called war on terror—the following:

    “'In a police state the police are national, powerful, authoritarian. Inevitably, national governments yield to the temptation to use the military to do the heavy lifting…. [O]nce the military is used, however minor initially, the march toward martial law…becomes irresistible.”
    "Fast-forward to the present. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, General Peter Grace, soon to become Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has called “for Posse Comitatus to be reconsidered in response to suggestions that it slowed down deployment of troops,” according to Jurist, a legal research  website.
    "Virginia Republican John Warner, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, “has questioned restrictions under the law since the September 11th attacks, and has promised to do so again.”
    "In February, 2002, soon after the nine eleven attacks, Colonel John R.Brinkerhoff, US Army Retired, and acting associate director for national preparedness of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), wrote:

 “'President Bush and Congress should initiate action to enact a new law that would set forth in clear terms a statement of the rules for using military forces for homeland security and for enforcing the laws of the United States. Things have changed a lot since 1878, and the Posse Comitatus Act is not only irrelevant but also downright dangerous to the proper and effective use of military forces for domestic duties.”
    “'Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution grants the power to Congress to make the rules governing the armed forces,” writes Diane Alden. “In recent years Congress has acted less like the source of legitimacy for the use of the military force and more like a rubber stamp for military adventurism by the executive branch, regardless of who is president…. both Republicans and Democrats can share the blame for blurring lines between the military and police…. Both can share blame in the unconstitutional laws passed and the open checkbook they offer federal police agencies that don’t seem to be concerned with the niceties of the Bill of Rights.” Alden wrote this in the 1990s, during the Clinton administration and after the outrage of Waco. Her words are even more urgent today as Bush and Congress have eroded the Constitution and the Bill of Rights even further.
    "Our corporate media has blamed FEMA’s response to Katrina on bureaucratic inertia and ineptitude. However, a cursory examination of events reveal something else: FEMA (and the Department of Homeland Security) deliberately exacerbated the situation in New Orleans and up and down the Gulf Coast by withholding crucial assistance, thus creating a chaotic situation and “anarchy” in the streets as desperate people “looted” stores in search of water and food. FEMA turned away experienced firefighters; turned away Wal-Mart supply trucks; prevented the Coast Guard from delivering diesel fuel; prevented the Red Cross from delivering food; blocked morticians from entering New Orleans; blocked a 500-boat citizen flotilla from delivering aid; turned away generators; told first responders not to respond. As Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard revealed during an emotional plea on NBC’s Meet the Press, FEMA basically declared war on local authorities and sabotaged local communications. FEMA went out of its way to make the situation worse, thus sending the message: without military occupation and a watering down of the Posse Comitatus Act, FEMA and the feds cannot do their job, a message dutifully echoed by the corporate media.
    “'The Posse Comitatus Act reflects the political sensitivities of a period in American history when Union troops enforced laws on the former Confederate states,” opines the San Antonio Express-News.
    "It also reflects the American concept of federalism and a traditional distrust of powerful government.
    "Hurricane Katrina sheds new light on these subjects. Emergency-management planning is now inextricably linked with national security. The military is, in effect, a first responder for both humanitarian relief and law enforcement. The federal government may be the only source of available help in some disaster situations.
    "Congress and the American people will examine what went wrong in the homeland security bureaucracy and why the federal government was slow to respond to Katrina’s destructive force.
    "They also need to examine the Posse Comitatus Act to make sure it—or at least government lawyers’ understanding of it—does not remain an obstacle to common-sense response to national disasters.
    "If the Posse Comitatus Act is an obstacle to anything, it is the federal government’s desire send in the Marines—who are trained to fight wars, not provide disaster relief and augment (or supplant) local law enforcement.

“'One of the United States’ greatest strengths is that the military is responsive to civilian authority and that we do not allow the Army, Navy, Marines or the Air Force to be a police force,” Marine Corps General Stephen Olmstead testified before Congress. “History is replete with countries that allowed that to happen. Disaster is the result.” Or, as Maryland delegate Luther Martin argued during the Constitutional Convention in 1787, “When a government wishes to deprive its citizens of freedom, and reduce them to slavery, it generally makes use of a standing army.”
    “'If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator,” Bush joked on December 18, 2000. However, as we have witnessed since, Bush was not joking and the result of his desire to be a dictator has resulted in a serious erosion of the Bill of Rights, most notably the First, Second, Fourth, and Six Amendments. Indeed, if the barriers to military rule are removed by Bush’s rubberstamp Congress, and the American people are not vigilant, 'slavery,' as Luther Martin noted, will be the ultimate result."

The Role of the Military

What would be the involvement of the Military in a code red emergency situation?

In theory, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 adopted in the wake of the US civil war, prevents the military from intervening in civilian police and judicial functions. This law is central to the functioning of constitutional government.

While the Posse Comitatus Act is still on the books, in practice the legislation is no longer effective in preventing the militarization of civilian institutions.(See Frank Morales at ).

Legislation inherited from the Clinton administration, not to mention the post 9/11 Patriot Acts I and II, "blurs the line between military and civilian roles". It allows the military to intervene in judicial and law enforcement activities even in the absence of an emergency situation.

In 1996, legislation was passed which allowed the military to intervene in the case of a national emergency (e.g.. a terrorist attack). In 1999, Clinton's Defense Authorization Act (DAA) extended those powers (under the 1996 legislation) by creating an "exception" to the Posse Comitatus Act, which permits the military to be involved in civilian affairs "regardless of whether there is an emergency". (See ACLU at )

"The new proposed exception to the Posse Comitatus Act would further expand a controversial measure adopted by Congress in 1996 that permitted military involvement in "emergencies" involving chemical and biological weapons crimes.

Under that new measure, which was proposed by the Defense Department, the military would be authorized to deal with crimes involving any chemical or biological weapons -- or any other weapon of mass destruction -- regardless of whether there is an "emergency." In addition, the new proposal would lift requirements that the military be reimbursed for the cost of its intervention, thus likely increasing the number of requests for military assistance.

"Under this new provision," Nojeim said, "the mere threat of an act of terrorism would justify calling in military units. That represents a loophole large enough to drive a battalion of army tanks through."

The defense authorization bill would also require the Pentagon to develop a plan to assign military personnel to assist Customs and the Immigration and Naturalization Service to "respond to threats to national security posed by entry into the U.S. of terrorists or drug traffickers."

"the mere threat of an act of terrorism would justify calling in military units. That represents a loophole large enough to drive a battalion of army tanks through." (ibid)

In other words, the Clinton era legislation had already laid the legal and ideological foundations of the "war on terrorism".

Despite this 1999 "exception" to the Posse Comitatus Act", which effectively invalidates it, both the Pentagon and Homeland Security, have been actively lobbying Congress for the outright repeal of the 1878 legislation:

"new rules are needed to clearly set forth the boundaries for the use of federal military forces for homeland security. The Posse Comitatus Act is inappropriate for modern times and needs to be replaced by a completely new law ...

It is time to rescind the existing Posse Comitatus Act and replace it with a new law. ... The Posse Comitatus Act is an artifact of a different conflict-between freedom and slavery or between North and South, if you prefer. Today's conflict is also in a sense between freedom and slavery, but this time it is between civilization and terrorism. New problems often need new solutions, and a new set of rules is needed for this issue.

President Bush and Congress should initiate action to enact a new law that would set forth in clear terms a statement of the rules for using military forces for homeland security and for enforcing the laws of the United States.

(John R. Brinkerhoff, former associate director for national preparedness of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), )

The Posse Comitatus Act, is viewed by military analysts as a "Legal Impediment to Transformation":

"[The Posse Comitatus Act constitutes] a formidable obstacle to our nation's flexibility and adaptability at a time when we face an unpredictable enemy with the proven capability of causing unforeseen catastrophic events. The difficulty in correctly interpreting and applying the Act causes widespread confusion at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels of our military. Given that future events may call for the use of the military to assist civil authorities, a review of the efficacy of the PCA is in order. ( Donald J. Currier, The Posse Comitatus Act: A Harmless Relic from the Post-Reconstruction Era or a Legal Impediment to Transformation? Authors; Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, Carlisle Barracks, Pa, September 2003)

The ongoing militarization of civilian justice and law enforcement is a bi-partisan project. Senator Joseph Biden (a Democrat), former Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has been waging, since the mid-1990s, in consultation with his Republican counterparts, a battle for the outright repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act.

The Patriot Legislation

In turn, the Bush administration PATRIOT Acts have set the groundwork of the evolving Homeland Security State. In minute detail, they go much further in setting the stage for the militarisation of civilian institutions.

The various provisions are very detailed and precise. The USA PATRIOT ACT of 2001 entitled "Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001" as well as the "Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003," ("PATRIOT Act II") create the conditions for the militarization of justice and police functions:

The "PATRIOT Act" is a repressive "coordination" of the entities of force and deception, the police, intelligence and the military. It broadens, centralizes and combines the surveillance, arrest and harassment capabilities of the police and intelligence apparatus. Homeland defense is, in essence, a form of state terrorism directed against the American people and democracy itself. It is the Pentagon Inc. declaring war on America.

The "domestic war on terrorism" hinges upon the Pentagon's doctrine of homeland defense. Mountains of repressive legislation are being enacted in the name of internal security. So called "homeland security", originally set within the Pentagon's "operations other than war", is actually a case in which the Pentagon has declared war on America. Shaping up as the new battleground, this proliferating military "doctrine" seeks to justify new roles and missions for the Pentagon within America. Vast "legal" authority and funds to spy on the dissenting public, reconfigured as terrorist threats, is being lavished upon the defense, intelligence and law enforcement "community."

All this is taking place amidst an increasingly perfected "fusion" of the police and military functions both within the US and abroad, where the phenomena is referred to as "peacekeeping", or the "policization of the military". Here in America, all distinction between the military and police functions is about to be forever expunged with the looming repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act.

In other words, the "New World Law and Order" based on the repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act, requires a system of domestic and global counterinsurgency led by the Pentagon.

(Frank Morales, Homeland Defense: The Pentagon Declares War on America,    In 2003, Frank Morales was granted A Project Censored Award of Sonoma University, Cal.

Even under a functioning civilian government, the PATRIOT Acts have already instated several features of martial law. The extent to which they may be applied is at the discretion of the military authorities.

The 2003 Patriot Act II goes much further in extending and enlarging the "Big Brother functions" of control and surveillance of people. It vastly expands the surveillance and counterinsurgency powers, providing government access to personal bank accounts, information on home computers, telephone wire tapping, credit card accounts, etc. (for further details, see at

The Role of Northern Command (Northcom)

Northern Command (Northcom) (based at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado) was set up in April 2002 specifically in the context of "the pre-emptive war on terrorism".

The creation of Northcom is consistent with the de facto repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act. In fact, the position of a "Homeland Defense Command" leader "in the event of a terrorist attack on U.S. soil", had already been envisaged in early 1999 by Clinton's Defense Secretary William Cohen. ( ).

Following the Bush Administration's decision to create Northcom, the White House instructed Justice Department lawyers "to review the Posse Comitatus law in light of new security requirements in the war on terrorism." The 1878 Act was said to "greatly restrict the military's ability to participate in domestic law enforcement". (National Journal, Government Record, 22 July 2002)

The role of Northern Command defined in the Pentagon's "Joint Doctrine for Homeland Security (JP-26)", constitutes a blueprint on how to defend the Homeland.

Martial law could be triggered even in the case of a bogus terror alert based on fabricated intelligence. Even in the case where it is known and documented to senior military officials that the "outside enemy" is fabricated, a martial law situation, characterized by detailed command military/ security provisions, would become operational almost immediately.

Northcom has a mandate to "defend the homeland" against this illusive "outside enemy", (Al Qaeda) which is said to be threatening the security of America. According to Frank Morales, "the scenario of a military take-over of America is unfolding." And Northern Command is the core military entity in this takeover and militarisation of civilian institutions.

Northcom's "Command Mission" encompasses a number of "non-military functions" including "crisis management" and "domestic civil support". Under Northcom jurisdiction, the latter would imply a process of "military support to federal, state and local authorities in the event of a terror attack". The latter would include:

the preparation for, prevention of, deterrence of, preemption of, defense against, and response to threats and aggression directed towards U.S. territory, sovereignty, domestic population, and infrastructure; as well as crisis management, consequence management, and other domestic civil support." (See )

Northcom is described as having "a Creeping Civilian Mission". (David Isenberg, Asian Times, 5 December 2003). Since its inception, it has been building capabilities in domestic intelligence and law enforcement. It is in permanent liaison with the DHS and the Justice Department. It has several hundred FBI and CIA officers stationed at its headquarters in Colorado. (National Journal, 1 May 2004). It is in permanent liaison, through an advanced communications system, with municipalities and domestic civilian law enforcement agencies around the country. (Ibid). It also has links to Canadian military and government authorities through the so-called "binaitonal planning group". (See Is the Annexation of Canada part of Bush's Military Agenda? November 2004 )

Meanwhile the CIA, which has a unit operating out of Northcom, has extended its mandate to issues of "domestic intelligence".

In the case of a Code Red Alert, a national emergency would be declared. Northern Command would deploy its forces on air, land and sea. Several functions of civilian government would be transferred to Northcom headquarters, which already has several structures, which enables it to oversee and supervise civilian institutions.

In other words, Northcom's "command structure" would be activated in the case of a code red terror alert. But Northcom does not require, in accordance with the provisions of the 1999 Defense Authorization Act (DAA), a terror alert, a terror attack or a war-like situation to intervene in the country's civilian affairs.

The jurisdiction of the Northern Command now extends from Mexico to Alaska. Under ("bi-national") agreements signed with Canada and Mexico, Northern Command can intervene and deploy its forces and military arsenal on land, air and sea in Canada (extending into its Northern territories), throughout Mexico and in parts of the Caribbean. (See )

Taken together, the existing legislation grants the military extensive rights to intervene in an "emergency situation", without the prior formal approval of the Commander in Chief.

America's Big Brother Data Banks

To prepare for new "law enforcement" missions for the military within America, overseen by the Northern Command, the Center for Law and Military Operations, based in Charlottesville, Virginia has published a "useful" Handbook entitled "Domestic Operational Law for Judge Advocates." According to Frank Morales, the Handbook:

"attempts to solidify, from a legal standpoint, Pentagon penetration of America and it's 'operations other than war,' essentially providing the U.S. corporate elite with lawful justification for its class war against the American people, specifically those that resist the "new world law and order" agenda." (Frank Morales, Homeland Defense and the Militarisation of America, Global Outlook, No. 6, Winter 2004, )

According to Morales: "the 'war on terrorism' is the cover for the war on dissent." which requires setting up comprehensive procedures and data banks for the surveillance of individual citizens.

In this context, In the wake of September 11, the Bush Administration established its proposed Big Brother data bank: "the Total Information Awareness Program (TIAP).

TIAP was operated by the Information Awareness Office (IAO), which had a mandate "to gather as much information as possible about everyone, in a centralized location, for easy perusal by the United States government." This would include medical records, credit card and banking information, educational and employment data, records concerning travel and the use of internet, email, telephone and fax.

TIAP was operated in the offices of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a division of the Pentagon in Northern Virginia. (See Washington Post, 11 Nov 2002 at )

Ironically, when it was first set up, it was headed by a man with criminal record, former National Security Adviser ret. Admiral John Poindexter.

Pointexter, who had been indicted on criminal charges for his role in the Iran Contra scandal during the Reagan Administration, subsequently resigned as TIAP Director and the program was "officially" discontinued.

(See Pointedexter's PowerPoint presentation at )

While the IAO no longer exists in name, the initiative of creating a giant data bank was by no means abandoned. Several US government bodies including Homeland Security, the CIA and the FBI, respectively oversee giant "Big Brother" data banks, which are fully operational. They also collaborate in the controversial Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange ( MATRIX). The latter is defined as "a crime-fighting database" used by law enforcement agencies, the US Justice Department and Homeland Security.

The National Intelligence Reform Act of 2004, sets the framework for establishing a centralized "Information Sharing Network" which will coordinate data from "all available sources". The proposed network would bring together the data banks of various government agencies under a single governmental umbrella. (Deseret Morning News, 29, 2004). Needless to say, this integration of Big Brother data banks also includes tax records, immigration data as well as confidential information on travelers.

Similar procedures have been implemented in Canada. The federal government in Ottawa is collaborating with the US, leading to the eventual merger of tax and immigration data banks between the two countries.


America at a Critical Crossroads

Unquestionably America is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in its history.

The coded terror alerts and "terror events", which have been announced by DHS are part of a disinformation campaign carried out by the CIA, the Pentagon, the State Department and Homeland Security.

US intelligence is not only involved in creating phony terror warnings, it is indirectly also behind the terror groups, providing them with covert support.( See )

Meanwhile, the militarization of civilian institutions is not only contemplated, it has become a talking point on network TV; it is openly debated as a "solution" to "protecting American democracy" which is said to be threatened by Islamic terrorists.

The implications of a code red alert are rarely the object of serious debate.

The terror exercises under TOPOFF serve to condition public officials and key decision makers. In turn through media disinformation, citizens are being prepared and gradually conditioned for the unthinkable.
