CIVIL RIGHTS at its' best Chicago businessman Yusef Jackson, a son of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, is selling the Budweiser beer distributorship he bought 16 years after his father led a national boycott of the country’s largest brewery over its lack of minority-owned distributors.

Jackson told the Chicago Sun-Times that River North Sales & Service has reached an agreement with the Hand Family Companies and BDT Capital Partners to sell its assets and combine with City Beverage Illinois to create the “largest beer distributor in the Chicagoland area, selling over 23.5 million case equivalents.”

Representatives of the Hand Family, who are white, could not be reached Thursday for comment.

“I am proud to have led the River North Sales and Service team for nearly 15 years,” Jackson said in a written statement,“evolving River North into a forceful and competitive organization built around a strong and dynamic team of people, world-class beer brands and an innovative and creative approach to the business. By fostering this business, we have been able to grow and flourish in Chicago, an extremely sophisticated and competitive beer market.”

Benj Steinman, who runs a beer industry trade publication, said the move should not affect Joe Six Pack.“I don’t think it will affect the average beer drinker much, it could affect the competitive dynamics in Chicago. Potentially (beer drinkers) may get more of some brands and less of others, but it’s all yet to be determined ... it’s going to take some time to unfold.”

Steinman said Jackson had made several moves to strengthen his business in the emergence of the craft beer market, such as becoming the city’s largest distributor of Goose Island beer.“He also has a lot of other strong brands,” said Steinman.

CIA Report: United States Negative $561 Billion
The U.S. Is At The Bottom Of The List Of 191 Nations! This Is Not An Accident!

The United States of America is being destroyed. It is an intentional and strategic plan designed to break the once most powerful nation on earth in order to bring in a World Socialist Government and one world currency. If you have any doubt about this fact, look at the CIA chart which shows the U.S. at the bottom of 191 nations with a negative $561 billion account balance. There is no way that this happens by accident, it is clearly a planned event.

The invisible government or the elite who control this world have decided to kill the dollar and kill the U.S. They planned this over 100 years ago and wrote about it openly. This did not happen overnight, it happened over decades. Rockefeller, the Trilateral Commission and the international bankers behind the Federal Reserve deliberately moved manufacturing out of the U.S. and into Communist China. They planned for China to become the world’s number one economic super power in the next few years.http://www.paulmcguire.o rg/?p=979

None of this was hidden from the American people! It was done out in the open. My question to you is,“How is it that the great evangelists and ministers were completely silent about it?” I can think of one Christian, that many of you idolize and who played golf with all of the Presidents. Yet, he never warned you or your family about what was coming. Why?

The ramifications about the numbers in the CIA chart are enormous. We have been infiltrated and taken over. However, there is much more to come, which I detail in my new 3 DVD Set “The Coming One World Government?” which is soon to be released.

The time has come for the Remnant Church to cry out to God and engage in spiritual warfare. Behind these economic figures is an intense spiritual battle that can be won in the heavenlies because all things are possible with God!

Perhaps you were not responsible for what happened in the past. But you are responsible for how you will deal with this crisis in relationship to the living God. Like it or not, this is what has been handed to us. But there is a way out! It is not an easy way, but God in His mercy has given us His supernatural and abundant resources to deal with the problem. This is our Goliath! This is our Red Sea! In the power of the Holy Spirit we must rise to the challenge and have absolute faith in God’s power to deliver.

We are moving forward to do just that in obedience to the Lord and we are calling on Watchman Prayer Warriors to engage with us in high-level spiritual warfare with overwhelming force. I will not play church, not now or ever! Nor will I surrender to stupidity and fanaticism. I have the call of God upon my life for this hour, and for this hour I was called before the foundation of the world.

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. We need you to partner with us in prayer and in financial giving. We are responsible for what God has given us. If you are giving and serving in a church that is dining and dancing while the Titanic is sinking, than you have no right to complain as the ship sinks.

God is calling His people. He is calling you. We are going to have to make some radical changes. If you stay in your comfort zone, you and your loved ones are going to perish. Read the statistics in the CIA chart very carefully and make sure you understand its full implications.

However, there is hope and a promise for all those that respond to the call of God and obey Him when He gives instructions. The situation is not impossible. The time has come to grow up and own our time. A Third Great Awakening, an authentic and Biblical last day’s revival and a massive soul harvest are all on the table. But you are going to have to make some radical changes. If you are playing church and in fellowship with those that do, you are dancing before the Golden Calf and judgment begins in the house of the Lord. If you are listening to false prophets you must forsake them.

Now is the time, and in the power of the Holy Spirit we must seize it. We must rise to our destiny and take back what was stolen from us.

According to the CIA World Factbook, America sits at the bottom of 191 nations, with a listed account balance of an astonishing negative $561 billion.

&#8232;As a side note, it’s interesting to note the massive disparity between Spain, who sits in 190th place, and the US, in 191st place.$66 billion compared to $561 Billion. That’s 8.5x as much!

Ignored is the grandfather clause. "Under the “grandfather clause,” a plan issued before the ACA was signed in 2010 could remain in place as long as employers or insurance companies didn’t drastically change its terms in a way that would harm the policy holder, like increasing out-of-pocket costs or dropping benefits. However, if a plan did change, it would lose its “grandfather status.” Then, any new plan issued in its place would be subject to Obamacare’s various requirements."
Most employer plans are designed for a population of employees that cross the spectrum. Most already include the majority of requirements & my need to make small changes. Just like policies have been doing for the past decade or so.

The Planned Destruction of the United States and Nation State

By Paul McGuire

The goal has always been, and is, a one world economic system, a cashless society and one world government! You are seeing the emergence of the "Fourth Beast" and the revived Roman Empire spoken of by Daniel. The G20 wants the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to be an international federal reserve, that is the purpose of the global economic crisis. An "Amero" dollar? A Terra? The goal is a global currency! But God is raising up a spiritual revolution! God is going to supple the needs of His people who are laboring in the final harvest and He wants you to be prepared in practical ways!

The goal is for the G20 to transform the International Monetary Fund (IMF) into a global Federal Reserve System. It is the Federal Reserve System which has controlled the U.S. money supply since 1914. The Federal Reserve System has nothing to do with the “Federal” government. It is a secretive and private corporation owned by international banking interests who control our political system, economy and money. In short, since 1914 the U.S. Government ended being a government run by “we the people” and has been under the control of international bankers. The Council on Foreign Relations is run by the same people who run the Federal Reserve. Here we have two of the most powerful groups in America and the world and there is almost a complete media black-out on them. The average American knows nothing about them except disinformation. Anyone who brings up the “elephants in the living room” is marginalized and demonized. Both political parties are controlled by these groups and their agenda has been a one world economic system and a one world government for a long time. Although, they do not realize it they are a fulfillment of the ancient prophecies of Daniel when he predicted a Revived Roman Empire and the “Fourth Beast.”

We are moving quickly to Revelation Chapter 13 which talks of a global government and a one world economic system along with a “mark of the beast.” The majority of the Church in America and around the world in Western nations is the Laodecian Church which had lost its spiritual vision. The root cause for this is that especially the Church in America has been seduced into substituting the philosophies of men for the Word of God. We are far deeper into the great apostasy that the Apostle Paul warned us about in II Thessalonians than most people realize. False teachers and false prophets abound in our time, except they do not wear signs which say “false teacher” on them.

* Obama hammers Bush's "disastrous" economic policies
By Ross Colvin

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug 9 (Reuters)- President Barack Obama attacked the economic policies of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush in Bush's home state on Monday as evidence of the way Republicans would operate if given power in Nov. 2 U.S. congressional elections.

At a fund-raising event for Democrats in Dallas, where Bush now lives, Obama said the former president's "disastrous" policies had driven the U.S. economy into the ground and turned budget surpluses into deficits.

Obama defended his repeated references to Bush's policies, saying they were necessary to remind Americans of the weak economy he inherited from Bush in January 2009."

"The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?" Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring to Bush's eight years as president."

And then Obammy brought prosperity to the US, not seen since it was rescued from Jimmy Carter.

Oh wait, he didn't.

The future is not all doom and gloom. God is preparing and is doing something powerful in his Church and His people in the last days. I believe we are on the verge of the greatest move of God in the history of the Church and the final harvest before Christ returns. But, we must recognize the good and the bad of our present day reality. First, unless God’s people repent of their apostasy and unbelief we are going to move into a “Police State” in many nations. The men and women, at the top, of this move towards global government, a new world order and a one world economic system are anticipating resistance and they have been preparing for years. There are many Christian’s who think it is “spiritual” to ignore these things. The greatest evangelical theological of the last 100 years was Dr. Francis Schaeffer. He warned that persecution and totalitarianism was coming. You can worship your favorite Christian author or Bible teacher, but they are no match for the spiritual and intellectual integrity of Dr. Francis Schaeffer. I had the privilege or working closely with members of this family for years. Schaeffer saw what was coming 30 years ago.
There is still a small window of opportunity to change our nation and the world before the return of Christ. But, this requires dealing with reality as it is and not living in a “strawberry fields” forever Christian reality. Bible teachers and ministers who are not telling you the truth about what is really going on are false prophets. No matter how loving they may seem.
On the economic and spiritual level we are going to give you the resources you will need to fulfill God’s plan for your life. Knowledge is power. The first step is to read “The Day The Dollar Died” so you can understand it. Secondly, we are providing resources on practical things you can do. Thirdly, God has given us one last opportunity for a law abiding, peaceful and spiritual revolution. A Third Great Awakening before His return. But, this spiritual revolution will impact the surrounding society and will not simply be an emotional high or experience. You can join us in this spiritual revolution. It only takes a small dedicated minority to change a nation. You do not need a majority. Remember the Communists in Russia took control and they were less than 10%.
First, let us look at what is happening economically. First, the present financial crisis is being manufactured to create fear and force people into change. They want to use it to remove the Constitution and move you into a one world socialist government where you lose your freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
It is important that they have economic central planning on a global scale, which would be an international Federal Reserve. This would be a giant step toward global government. They say they need new global powers are because the economic crisis we face is global. This means a U.N. Constitution where you lose your freedoms. It means accepting the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child which gives the U.N. the power to raise your children anyway they see fit. That means your children can be sexually active, watch pornography and will be taught that Christianity is wrong. If you object y you are arrested. If you think that is paranoia than read the documents!
The new IMF or International Federal Reserve is about global government. The IMF as Global Fed would be about as accountable as our Federal Reserve. The Congress and the American people have no idea where trillions of dollars in Fed loans have gone and there is no intention to tell them. Many of you have your favorite conservative pundits. But you are not watching or listening carefully.

Bush's time:

In the wake of a recession that began roughly seven weeks after President Bush took office, America experienced six years of uninterrupted economic growth and a record 52 straight months of job creation that produced more than 8 million new jobs. During the Bush presidency, the unemployment rate averaged 5.3 percent. We saw labor-productivity gains that averaged 2.5 percent annually — a rate that exceeds the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Real after-tax income per capita increased by more than 11 percent. And from 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17 percent, a gain of nearly $2.1 trillion.

As for Obama’s claim that Bush “turned a budget surplus into a deficit”: by January 2001, when Bush was inaugurated, the budget surpluses were already evaporating as the economy was skidding toward recession (it officially began in March 2001). Combined with the devastating economic effects of 9/11, when we lost around 1 million jobs over 90 days, the surplus went into deficit.

Rather than whine incessantly about the situation, President Bush proposed policies that triggered the kind of sustained growth that saw the deficit fall to 1 percent of GDP ($162 billion) by 2007. Indeed, before the financial crisis of 2008 – which I’ll return to in a moment — Bush’s budget deficits were 0.6 percentage points below the historical average.(My former White House colleague Keith Hennessey eviscerates Obama’s assertion that we faced a “decade of spiraling deficits” here).

vs Obammy's time:

Now let’s consider Mr. Obama’s record: an unemployment rate of 9.5 percent, with 131,000 jobs lost in July, during our so-called Recovery Summer (Vice President Biden promised us up to 500,000 new jobs a month back in April). The overall unemployment rate, incorporating people who want jobs but did not look during July, is now 16.5 percent.

According to J.D. Foster, Obama’s “job deficit”— the difference between current employment and the jobs Obama promised to create by the end of 2010 – stands at a staggering 7.6 million workers. The 2010 deficit is $1.471 trillion, or 10 percent of GDP, while the debt is $9.2 trillion, or 62.7 percent of GDP.(From January 20, 2001, to January 20, 2009, the debt held by the public grew $3 trillion under Bush, from $3.3 trillion to $6.3 trillion; in 20 months, Mr. Obama will add as much debt as Mr. Bush ran up in eight years.) And let’s not forget that the Obama administration passed an $862 billion stimulus package and assured us that unemployment would not exceed 8 percent; instead, unemployment topped 10 percent – a figure higher than what the Obama administration said would occur if the stimulus package wasn’t passed.

Sales of new homes collapsed earlier this year, sinking 33 percent to the lowest level on record (new home sales rose in June from May’s historical low, but the overall pace was still the second slowest on record, the Commerce Department reported.

Not surprisingly, the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index now stands at 50.4. As a reference point, a reading above 90 indicates that the economy is on solid footing, while above 100 signals strong growth. We also learned on Tuesday that the Federal Reserve, downgrading its assessment of the economy, announced that the pace of recovery is “more modest” than it had anticipated.“The Fed noted that high unemployment, modest income growth, lower housing wealth and tight credit were holding back household spending,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

Consider this as well: according to the Obama administration’s own projections, in the first term we’ll see an average unemployment rate of 9.0 percent, real GDP growth of 1.1 percent, federal spending as a percentage of GDP at 24 percent, budget deficits as a percentage of GDP at 7.8 percent, and the deficits as a percentage of GDP at 6.2 percent (see here).

These projections are, across-the-board, depressing.

Now, unlike Obama, whose intellectual dishonesty can be striking at times, some of us are willing to concede that things need to be placed within a proper context. Obama took the oath of office in the wake of a financial collapse that made every economic indicator much worse; it’s only fair to take that into account. But even here, in characterizing what happened, Obama has to present a cartoon image, distorted and disfigured, pretending that it was wholly and completely the fault of President Bush and Republicans.

In fact, it was a complex set of factors that both Republicans and Democrats were complicit in. In addition, it’s worth noting that Democrats were in control of Congress beginning in January 2007 — and Congress is where legislation, including appropriations and tax legislation, is passed.

Second, spending would have been much higher during the Bush presidency if Democrats had their way. To take just one example: Democrats proposed creating a prescription-drug program as an alternative to the one Bush proposed that would have cost a projected $800 billion over 10 years. The Bush prescription-drug law was originally expected to cost half that amount — and today it costs a third less than initial projections because it uses market forces to drive prices down (see here and here).

Third, Democrats bear the majority of the blame for blocking reforms that could have mitigated the effects of the housing crisis, which in turn led to the broader financial crisis.

As Stuart Taylor put it in 2008:


The pretense of many Democrats that this crisis is altogether a Republican creation is simplistic and dangerous. It is simplistic because Democrats have been a big part of the problem, in part by supporting governmental distortions of the marketplace through mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, whose reckless lending practices necessitated a $200 billion government rescue [in September 2008].… Fannie and Freddie appear to have played a major role in causing the current crisis, in part because their quasi-governmental status violated basic principles of a healthy free enterprise system by allowing them to privatize profit while socializing risk.

The Bush administration warned as early as April 2001 that Fannie and Freddie were too large and overleveraged and that their failure “could cause strong repercussions in financial markets, affecting federally insured entities and economic activity” well beyond housing. Bush’s plan would have subjected Fannie and Freddie to the kinds of federal regulation that banks, credit unions, and savings and loans have to comply with. In addition, Republican Richard Shelby, then chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, pushed for comprehensive GSE (government-sponsored enterprises) reform in 2005. And who blocked these efforts at reforming Fannie and Freddie? Democrats such as Christopher Dodd and Representative Barney Frank, along with the then-junior senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who backed Dodd’s threat of a filibuster (Obama was the third-largest recipient of campaign gifts from Fannie and Freddie employees in 2004).

So Obama and his party bear a substantial (though not exclusive) responsibility in creating the economic crisis that Obama himself inherited.

Even if you set all this aside, Obama entered office knowing what he faced, including a deficit and debt that was exploding. And rather than promote policies that accelerated economic growth and began to address our fiscal entitlement crisis, Obama went in exactly the opposite direction. For example, Obama succeeded in passing a massive new entitlement program (ObamaCare) rather than trimming existing ones.

But just as these cuts were set to bite, the Obama administration started handing out $8.35 billion in "quality improvement" bonuses to Advantage companies, under the guise of a "demonstration project."

Navy SEALs Ordered To Remove Navy Jack From Uniforms
submit to reddit 142

The “Don’t Tread On Me” flag or First Navy Jack has flown on naval ships throughout our history including during the American Revolutionary War. The rattlesnake is especially significant and symbolic. The rattle has thirteen layers, signifying the original Thirteen Colonies.

Official Navy instruction has authorized all naval ships to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War On Terror.

Why is it then that senior personnel from within WARCOM and Naval Special Warfare are putting out instructions and memos stating that Navy SEALs are no longer authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread on Me” patch on their combat uniforms along with other custom patches?

I have heard some defend this action stating that it is due to trying to maintain uniformity between the operators. We all know that is complete garbage. As members of special operations, we have had the ability to wear custom uniforms that often did not always match our teammates. We also could wear our own custom patches. These include state flag patches, unit or platoon patches, or just plain motivational patches. From wearing blue jeans in Vietnam and non-military hunting camouflage patterns currently, to wearing the Punisher, Crusader, or Navy Jack on our uniforms or body armor, special operations personnel bring the fight to the enemy using battle symbols we feel strongly about.

Whether it be a symbol of our heritage or a sign to strike fear into our enemies, it is clear to me that someone sitting behind a desk needs to keep their politics or weaknesses away from the Teams and all other special operations personnel.http://navyseals.com /3500/navy-seals-ordered-remov e-navy-jack-uniforms/?utm_sour ce=rss&utm_medium=rss& utm_campaign=navy-seals-ordere d-remove-navy-jack-uniforms

NOTE FROM OATH KEEPERS:
We have heard other SEALs say that the reason for this change in policy is that DOD believes that the “Don’t Tread on Me” Navy Jack is a symbol related to, or associated with,“extremist” organizations. We have not confirmed this, and the DOD has not put out an official statement laying this out as the reason, but it wouldn’t at all surprise us. Today, simply quoting the Founding Fathers, or expressing the same beliefs in inherit individual liberty that drove them to take up arms against the British Empire (which they had been part of, until declaring their independence), is a short track to being labeled an “extremist.” So, it stands to reason that any symbols and insignia that relate back to that “Spirit of 76&#8243; and the American Revolution would be hated by the current regime and its supporters, who would love to erase all such ideas and history from the minds of Americans (and certainly fear active duty military even thinking about such ideas and expressions of resolve). And such a policy certainly fits right in with the recently disclosed Army briefings, such as those at Ft. Hood, that labeled the Tea Party and Christians as “extremists” and potential terrorism threats.
Problem is, for the Regime, stamping out our culture is not that easy to do, and can’t be done just by banning the wearing of the Navy Jack and other insignia, and using SPLC propaganda in deployment briefings. Just where do they think guys who become Navy SEALs come from? Same place where guys who become U.S. Army Special Forces, Rangers, 82nd Airborne, Marine Scout Snipers, Force Recon, Marine infantry, etc. come from. And the same places most of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coasties come from. They come from traditional American families, most of them self-identifying as “Christians,” many of which have proud military service traditions spanning back through many generations, with their fathers, uncles, Grandfathers, and great-uncles all serving. And especially when you talk about our trigger pullers at the tip of the spear, more often than not, they come from the more rural parts of this nation (which the elites consider “flyover” country), where they grew up hunting, shooting, and driving the back-roads in their ATVs and pick-up trucks. in other words, they come from the very segment of society that the radical “progressives”(i.e. communists and socialists) loath, hate, and fear the most.
How many U.S. Marines or Army Airborne come from “Progressive” households? You know the answer. Not many.
And that poses a serious problem for the Regime. How does it successfully demonize over half the nation, and convince the current serving to see that “traditional” half of the nation as “the enemy” for future domestic operations, when the overwhelming majority of those very same current serving military come from that half of the country?
Good luck with that. There are not enough DHS and private contractor Stasi wannabees to get it done. The Regime will have to either somehow convince most of the current serving to fire on their own flesh and blood – to kill their own veteran uncles, brothers, fathers, and Grandfathers, or it will have to bring in “outside” help.
