Matthew Ward is a highly-evolved individual who speaks on behalf of Earth’s spiritual hierarchy. Ashtar, commander of the Galactic Federation’s fleet, once informed the author:“I want to tell you why you can trust the information we transmit to Suzy Ward [Mattherw Ward's mother and channel]. We know Matthew—all highly evolved beings in the universe know this soul—and his soul and his mother’s vibrate at the same high frequency, where only truth is passed between beings wherever they are, and she is known by us as a uniquely clear receiver.”(4) I accept Cdr. Ashtar’s evaluation.

Matthew made his first comment about Barack Obama on July 4, 2008, during the election campaign. He called the momentum of Obama’s political campaign “unstoppable” and reassured his supporters about some of the candidate’s recent decisions.

“We see presidential nominee Barack Obama’s supporters’ uneasiness about his recent statements and decisions that are disappointing and seem to contradict his previous stance. Because the next US president issue is of international interest and his momentum toward office is unstoppable, we hasten to assure that he is doing only what he must to ostensibly align himself with the expectations of the Illuminati.

“Although their power base is in tatters, they still have enough punch to sway election results by fraudulent vote count, bribery and life threats to families of anyone who opposes them. So do be at peace if the ‘public’ Obama has become worrisome to you—it is like many other situations that are not what they appear to be and time will so tell. We can say this without jeopardizing his and his family’s physical safety—… they [are] surrounded by light warrior protectors.

His next comment came on Sept. 28, 2008, prior to the election, when he described the candidate’s qualities and destiny.

“Barack Obama will accomplish his mission to bring wisdom, justness and integrity to the United States government, and his example of governing with compassion and reconciliation to unify a divided nation will resound around the world. He is not the only highly evolved soul who will lead Earth into the Golden Age—many others also came to fill influential positions, some to support Obama and some as leaders of other nations.”(6)

On Oct. 28, 2008, Matthew described Barack Obama’s origins and predicted that he would be a factor in welcoming our galactic family to Earth when disclosure happens, as we expect within the next few months.

“I believe all the other questions can be answered thusly: The combination of Obama’s innate wisdom and leadership experience from lifetimes in spiritually and intellectually evolved civilizations and the light that increasingly is raising consciousness of Earth humankind will heal the divisiveness evident in the current ferocity of political haranguing; the new administration will welcome the assistance of your space brothers and sisters when they can offer it overtly, and it will be in whatever form is needed, from new technologies to educational aids for students and mass media to new construction methods and materials. I hasten to add that the same extraterrestrial assistance will be offered worldwide.”

Dammit Troll, you did it again. Stop doing these things. Its not what this forum is about. I'm serious here
After the election, on Nov. 21, 2008, Matthew described what the view of Obama’s victory was like from the spirit side of life.

“Although photographs and stories have shown worldwide elation about the United States president-elect, those can only begin to indicate what we saw. If you can imagine Earth revolving from shimmering golden light into blinding brilliance, you will have a faint glimpse of what we observed during the hours election updates traveled around the globe.

“The radiance is the heart-to-heart connection between Barack Obama and all who are jubilant about his winning the election. Although the density around the planet has been lightening for many years, most of the populace do not yet remember what their souls know, the universal law of ‘like attracts like’ and the heart is the seat of the soul. Those who sense Obama’s light do so because they are energetically aligned with his soul’s make-up, and this connection rises into consciousness not only as joy, but a strong feeling that Obama’s win is a victory for all peoples and for Earth herself. It IS, and that is why we greeted you with JOY TO THE WORLD!”(8)

On that same occasion, he revealed that President-elect Obama had been chosen to by the people about to incarnate on Earth before they were born.

“Regardless of celestial origin and current culture, age, skin color, religion, gender, ethnicity, or nation of residency, prior to birth all peoples now on the planet knew the soul who would incarnate as Barack Obama and joyfully agreed to his becoming president of the United States to lead that country and the world into the Golden Age.

“All participant souls were born with that knowledge, but it was forgotten in the adjustment to ‘life in the flesh’ and its needs, and even more so, indoctrination by family, educators, religion and society. But they all knew that would happen because it is inherent in third density embodiment; therefore, according to the plan, light in ever increasing intensity has been provided by beings throughout the universe to merge Earth peoples’ consciousness with their soul level knowingness.

“So, what is considered in your world to be a recent political event had its beginnings long ago in your counting of time and is far, FAR more than Obama’s imminent presidency! Think of the innumerable times “historic” has been used to describe this, and rightly so! However, most people have no idea how truly historic it is—they have not yet reached their soul’s knowledge that includes what I just explained or what I and other sources of messages have told you through our receivers: This era on Earth is unique, what is happening is unprecedented in the universe.”(9)


He also addressed the concerns of readers who worried that Obama was appointed Illuminati cabalists to his cabinet.

“[Let me address] the expressed concerns about the individuals Obama has met with or appointed. Not only must he ease out of toeing the line set by those who thrust him into the limelight—most of them are following through with their own pre-birth agreements—but he has no presidential authority yet to initiate dramatic changes, and actions within his current range of decision-making are not cast in stone.

“Replace your concerns about his safety with gratitude for the shield of protective Christed light surrounding him, and yes, the light in your prayers does indeed add to his well being. We encourage you to be patient while everything unfolds, knowing without any doubt whatsoever that the light is in control!”

After the joyous celebration of Barack Obama’s election and the high majesty of his swearing in, the Illuminati set about through its controlled press and right-wing neoconservatives set about through radio talkshows, newspapers, political organizations, and any other means possible to tarnish President Obama’s character and record. Everywhere we turned we encountered negative appraisals of the President and many lightworkers assumed that where there was smoke there was fire.

Abandonment of the President proceeded at a rapid rate. Matthew described the task facing the President and the reasons for some of the actions that lightworkers did not approve of. I quote his analysis at length. It forms almost a history of that period.

“Now then, while Illuminati control of mainstream media has cracked, it has not disintegrated sufficiently so that information they do not want you to know is reported; nor is the full truth given of situations they would like to keep completely quiet but cannot. And you can be certain that nothing is reported that reflects the concerns of lightworkers who are distressed because President Obama has entrusted vital responsibilities to persons known to be affiliated with Illuminati power bases and some of his decisions appear to be strengthening rather than weakening those bases.…

“Certainly the highly-evolved soul that Obama is does not need our defense, and that is not what we are doing by explaining what he is dealing with. Our purpose in speaking of this is to state that not only is an individual’s balance disturbed by the energy of distress—or discontentment, disappointment, disillusionment, anger—but also that energy goes forth and adds to the negativity Earth has to transmute into light. Thus, far better than feeling negative emotions about what Obama appears to be doing is staying positively focused on the world as you want it to be.

“So then what is he dealing with? In short, the incremental dismantling of the Illuminati worldwide network. As background on this pernicious ‘umbrella group,’ only the topmost members know the full extent of its infiltration into governments, banking, commerce, religions, education, media, science, entertainment—all bodies that most impact life in your world. Below those few peak individuals are the ones who control the many aspects of the global network. Each has general knowledge about the others but no detailed information about any operations except what he or she is in charge of.

“The farther down the hierarchy a member is, the more secrecy enshrouds the reasons for the Illuminati’s very existence; and at the bottom are the many thousands who simply follow instructions without a glimmer of understanding what real purpose they are serving, somewhat like a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle dumped out of the box—no piece is aware of the interconnectedness of all the pieces, much less suspect that altogether they form a whole picture. In the case of the Illuminati, that picture is sinister indeed.”

Matthew explains that it was only after his election that President Obama began to see a fuller picture of the task he faced in eliminating the controllers of American society from their positions of strength.

“After assuming office, President Obama was briefed on information he had no way of knowing prior to that time, and to continue our analogy, each of the briefers had only a few puzzle pieces. Furthermore, Obama was faced with a dire global economic situation that purportedly started with ‘toxic’ mortgages in the United States, and he needed a knowledgeable, experienced team who could take immediate steps to prevent worldwide collapse.

“The enormity of the Illuminati’s economic network is known in fullness only by the peak of that group, but by connecting puzzle pieces, Obama has become aware of that entanglement and the fortunes hidden in off-shore banks, but the total picture puzzle that will show how that money has been used to manipulate and dominate the world’s peoples has yet to be put together.

“As difficult as it is to imagine the extent of organizational complexity that is the Illuminati’s base of power and influence, it is even more difficult to totally eliminate it. Discovery and legal means to rid the world of that insidious control are underway, and until all is in readiness, it would be foolhardy to make public those efforts.

“Thus neither the Illuminati nor the Obama camp want their respective activities to become public knowledge, and the ‘transparency’ he promised in good faith must for a while longer be ‘behind-closed-doors’ instead. As the light continues steadily intensifying and truths no longer can be hidden or denied, you will see the results of his wise course that in this moment seems to belie many of his campaign promises.”

Another fresh link. Keep baiting me.
On Feb. 14, 2010, Matthew told us he was aware of our doubts about the President and pointed to how much more he could see from his vantage point.
“We know of the opinions that US President Obama is leading his country in the wrong direction, and we tell you that if only you could know how prudently and wisely he is moving behind the scenes to upset the entire Illuminati apple cart, instead of concerns about his direction, there would be rousing cheers.”(13)
He cautioned us about the impact our negative thoughts could have on Obama and other lightworkers.
“The larger purpose to be served by assuring you that Obama’s intentions are aligned with the light is of utmost importance. The energy of negative thoughts about his leadership and all other situations anywhere on Earth that are seen as worrisome is flowing out into your world and delaying effective resolutions to tumultuous happenings everywhere.”(14)
On March 29, 2010, Matthew noted that “many of you still are questioning US President Obama’s motives or leadership abilities. Therefore we will speak briefly again about this highly evolved soul who all of you agreed prior to birth would be elected to that position and lead your world into an era of peace.”
“We told you before the primary elections that he would become president, and everything we have said about him and his part of the Golden Age master plan in subsequent messages also is as accurate now as then.”(15)
He agreed with David Willcock that the motive power the wall of criticism of the President came from Republicans and the Illuminati. He realized that lightworkers were abandoning the President, assuming that smoke meant fire.
“While opposition to Obama’s direction from the Republicans in Congress en masse and some members of his own party too is public knowledge, the power behind the dissension—pressure from the Illuminati global web-work—is not. Except for readers of our messages and those from other sources within the light, it is not known that the vociferous and rancorous disagreements within the US government are not as they appear to be, a stubborn partisan bloc or inflexible ideological differences—it is the influence of the light and of the darkness being played out on the United States government stage.”(16)
On Aug. 13, 2010, Matthew answered one of his readers who asked:“Are you still convinced that US President Obama is a highly evolved lighted soul who came from an advanced civilization to lead us into the Golden Age?”
“Yes! There is no reason for us or other messengers in high stations to doubt that, but we understand why some of you do. Assessments and conclusions can only be according to information available to you. You don’t have our vantage point in the universe or our information sources, and you have no way of knowing all the undercurrents that will be ushering in your new world.”(17)
He repeated his warning about the damage being done by criticism of the President.
“Doubt about Obama’s light-filled intentions is arming his opposition — that is why we urge you to withhold judgment and to envision him and your world in golden light. Negative thoughts and feelings about Obama’s leadership are reducing his ability to persuade his own government and other leaders to act in harmonious cooperation to achieve a peaceful world with shared wealth and well being for all. This is not his failing, but rather the law of attraction in operation — negativity aimed in any direction brings back to Earth more negative situations.

Immediately prior to the mid-term elections of the past year, Matthew explained why he could predict Obama’s election but not that of candidates in the mid-term elections. The reason is that Obama’s election was part of the Golden Age master plan and the others are not.

“We do not know how next month’s elections in the United States will turn out, and it is logical to ask why since we could tell you even before the primaries that Obama would be that country’s new president. The difference is his presidency is part of the Golden Age master plan — you shall see that his formidable opposition’s delaying tactics and criticism will not deter him from accomplishing his light-filled mission — and the upcoming election results are not. The same is true of elections in other countries, and despite the energy poured into campaigns by candidates and their adamant supporters and wealthy contributors, partisan politics soon will start fading into history.

“Far from their pledge to govern in the best interests of a united citizenry, most politicians promote contentiousness and separation, and those have no place in Earth’s Golden Age. So please do not be despondent if your ‘party’ or ‘candidate’ loses. If winners are of the light they will hold their seats and if they are not, their tenures will be short-lived. In stages during the time remaining before the onset of that glorious Age at the end of your year 2012, governments of every nation will become bodies that honorably and abundantly serve the interests of their people. That transformation is not very far off — with everything in acceleration mode, linear time is passing faster and faster.”

On Dec. 17, 2009, Matthew took a great deal of time to review President Obama’s recent decisions and reassure his readers once again. Again I quote at length so that these views may be part of the public record.

“Now then, we know that some of you are deeply disappointed about President Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, which seems to be totally contrary to his having been chosen to receive the prestigious peace award. In this moment that may appear to be so, but in time you shall see that the committee’s selection is indeed most appropriate.

“From his beginning days in office, Obama has been confronted with powerful opposition to his godly vision for his country and a world at peace, and while never wavering one iota from his ultimate intentions, he has had to make compromises and interim decisions that are not in consonance with his vision, with messages from his soul.

“Ironically perhaps, the same energies that are inspiring gifts from the heart on an unprecedented scale also are causing those who are against all reforms to dig in their heels more stubbornly than ever; through bribery, blackmail or life-threats, the individuals who have woven the pernicious web of darkness still are calling many political shots. Obama and the members of Congress who share his vision will tenaciously pursue the liberation of their government from those self-serving ones who wish to keep it under their control.

“This is not unique to the United States, it is happening in countries throughout your world. What is occurring behind the scenes within and among governments will result in triumph for all light-filled peoples, and the dark ones in ruling bodies and every other organization that impacts life on Earth will disappear. As planetary vibrations continue to rise, those ruthless manipulators will leave; their physical bodies cannot survive without the light that they refuse to accept, and the souls will go to worlds that correspond to their lifetime energy registration.

“The soul essence of Obama is expressed in his words, and you may remember that he wisely said to believe in yourselves. When you eagerly ‘raised your hand,’ so to speak, you knew that you would experience the deception and corruption in politics, laws and the socio-economic strata, and you incarnated specifically to free your world from the destructive nature of that divisiveness and inequity.”

And on Jan. 15, 2011, Matthew again referred to the fact that Barack Obama hails from a spiritually-advanced civilization to assist Earth in the plan to unveil a Golden Age on Earth.

“US President Obama’s memorial address was transmitted to us from Earth’s monitors in Nirvana. We know the soul of this man, better than he knows himself, yet without his conscious awareness that he willingly left his spiritually advanced civilization to serve in the vanguard of the Golden Age master plan, his words on that memorial occasion were from his heart and soul in concert with all the heavenly hosts.”(21)

Matthew Ward has steadfastly held that President Obama is “a major factor in the master plan.”

“Some see his administration moving boldly in new directions, others see it following the same policies as the former administration, and still others see it acting on too many fronts without well-defined objectives. To all who regard with pessimism the decisions and actions thus far, we say: Wait and see!

“Despite the formidable situations Obama inherited and the determined opposition of Illuminati members of Congress and those who are acting under that dark group’s influence, whether by bribery, blackmail or death threats to family, he will pursue his visionary course to benefit his nation and the world.”(22)

I have learned to trust Matthew’s messages over the four years that I’ve listened to them. His estimation of Barack Obama is a major factor in my own support for the President.

Obama promised in 2008 to reach across the aisle and put partisanship aside. Many of us wanted him to blame the Republicans, to point out that the mess he inherited was the result of Republican policies. He didn’t. We wouldn’t have been surprised if we had paid more attention during the campaign.

Four years later, we’ve learned that reaching out to Republicans doesn’t work. Americans say they want bipartisanship, but what they respect is the truth and leaders who tell it. Compare the first debate to the last two. Obama won all three on substance. But the public responded much more favorably to Obama in the last two debates when he was more confrontational. My hope is after he is reelected, Obama will talk to the Republican Congress the same way he talked to Mitt Romney in those last two debates. He can do that regardless of the popular vote, but he can better rally popular opinion if he wins the popular vote and deprives Republicans of the argument that the majority of Americans support them. Obama needs a mandate.

Troy is also wrong about Israel. He echoes the Republicans in arguing that the first two years of the Obama administration reveal a pro-Palestinian worldview that will reemerge after November. Obama never equated the Israeli and Palestinian causes. He noted that both sides have suffered, just as George W. Bush did, but he never suggested a moral equivalence. Israel agreed to a 10-month settlement freeze to test the Palestinian commitment to the peace process. The Palestinians failed the test. And Iran will continue to be the focus in Obama’s second term.


The best guide to what President Obama will do in his second term is what he did in his first term: He called for the removal of Syrian President al-Assad, eliminated Osama bin Laden, did more than any other president to stop Iran’s illicit nuclear program, restored Israel’s qualitative military edge after years of erosion under the Bush administration, secretly sold Israel the bunker-busting bombs it requested but did not receive during the Bush administration, increased security assistance to Israel to record levels, boycotted the the Durban II and Durban III conferences, took U.S.-Israel military and intelligence cooperation to unprecedented levels, cast his only veto in the U.N. against a one-sided anti-Israel Security Council resolution, opposed the Goldstone Report, stood with Israel against the Gaza flotilla, and organized a successful diplomatic crusade against the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.


That’s why I proudly voted to reelect President Obama.

In a pointed essay about how wrong some libertarian bloggers masquerading as progressives can be, Booman Tribune (@booMan23) outlines a very good summary of just some of the major progressive achievements of the Obama adminstration. Despite the incessant and destructive doom and gloom whining of a professional left that profits from all the hysteria they manufacture, and the general ineffectualness of a progressive movement that now seems to have been far more interested in bumper sticker slogans that made them feel good,rather than in the long,hard slog we needed to make real political change, the Obama administration has gotten far more accomplished than any of these do-nothing idealogues really want you to know about.

Why it that? Because the more you know, the more likely you are to vote. And that means Obama would easily win reelection, and that's just something they cannot stomach because he's not "just not progressive enough" to suit their suspiciously juvenile expectations or tastes.

Whether they actually feel that way, as so many irrelevant socialists, anarchists, and nihlists have always felt in our nation's history, or they are being well-paid by the right wing to appear as if they feel that way, is really irrelevant in the current shadow of an impending Right wing takeover of the White House and Senate. Their glum, disappointed, despiriting voices and screeds deface the pages of countless newspaper, broadcast, and blogging accounts so often, the apathy and despair in the electorate is palpable, and probably far greater than is being reflected in Obama's low approval numbers.

Those numbers always take a plunge after the latest "Caver in Chief" memes get planted by the Hamshers, Greenwalds, Uygurs, Schultzes, Moores, Ratigans, Daous, and the rest of the perpetually petulant rich people gambling with America's future so they can look important to the 7% of democrats who will never be happy with any Democratic president. These memes get traction not because they are true, but because these people get more traction in the main stream media than do all the other voices who actually lay out the facts without all the ruinously simplistic distortions and polemical firebombs designed to get them high-fives from their friends and sympathetic media hosts, and generally advance their career profiles and products, no matter how much they posture otherwise. Whether they really want to destroy the Obama presidency is secondary to the fact that they actually are. So why are they so culturally suicidal with so much at risk for our society? Ask them. They will spin you up a nice lie, replete with just enough pseudo-progressive blither blather that you might actually confuse them with sincere progressives. They're not.

But enough preamble. Here is Booman's list, mostly reformatted and marginally reworded to suit this purpose, and with just enough of his lead-in retained to provide some context:


On many of the issues that most concern [Glenn] Greenwald, the two parties are frighteningly alike. How do we get these assholes to stop the insane War on Drugs? How can we ever shrink the Pentagon down to a reasonable size? Is there any end to the expansion of the surveillance state? It seems like neither party has any interest in budging on any of these questions, and it's appalling.

But how about the areas where they do differ?
•Obama has overhauled the food safety system
•Advanced women's rights in the work place
•Ended Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) in our military
•Stopped defending DOMA in court.
•Passed the Hate Crimes bill.
•Appointed two pro-choice women to the Supreme Court.
•Expanded access to medical care and provided subsidies for people who can't afford it.
•Expanded the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
•Fixed the preexisting conditions travesty [and rescissions] in health insurance.
•Invested in clean energy.
•Overhauled the credit card industry, making it much more consumer-friendly.
•While Dodd-Frank bill was weak in many respects, it was still an extremely worthwhile start at re-regulating the financial sector.
•He created a Elizabeth Warren's dream agency: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
•He's done a lot for veterans
•He got help for people whose health was injured during the clean-up after the 9/11 attacks
