It is another election cycle, and once again we're all being treated to the phenomenon we go through during every election cycle, a phenomenon I call "pimping God." You know what it is: it's when all the candidates talk about their deep faith in God and about what good Christians they are, while cherry-picking biblical texts to support whatever platform or program the want to push down our throats. True to form, President and would-be Messiah Hope-and-Change Obama used the occasion of speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast to shove his version of Churchianity down our throats. Speaking before the assembly of the religious and powerful, the President stated:

"I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me, as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.'"(National Prayer Blasphemy)

Well, as Lew Rockwell points out, it is God that does the requiring, not the state....or is it? It was the contention of my co-author, Dr. Scott D. de Hart, and I in Yahweh the Two-Faced God that the morally ambiguous character of the Yahwist religions is tailor made for manipulation by elites, and that would include political elites. The positive, revealed religions were tailor-made for social engineering by elites.

We need only look at the National Prayer Breakfast themselves. This institution is a product of the 1930s Norwegian preacher Abraham Vereide, who founded a movement to convert the rich and powerful to a form of "Christianity" for the rich and powerful, a form endorsing basically conservative views, in reaction to Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal liberalism. Over time, however, the movement morphed into a group merely recruiting the powerful and politically connected class to "work for Jesus' kingdom". It is, in its own twisted way, a form of dominionism, a movement willing to pray with Muslims by invoking the Muslim belief that Christ was a true prophet, and creating even a kind of "Chrislam". It is a movement that inspired Uganda's death penalty laws against homosexuals and other transgressors of "God's law." It is a movement that has recruited Senators Jim Inhoff (R-OK) and Charles Grassley (R-IA), and on and on we could go. The only requirement for the movement, which reaches across the political party spectrum, is that one be politically powerful. (For a full history of this movement, called "the Family," see the two studies of Jeff Sharlett, The Family and C Street).

We shouldn't be surprised that, once again, this ambiguous Yahwist tradition is being invoked, yet again, by the powerful in the name of promoting another social program enforced by the coercive arm of the state. What remains to be seen is how long it will take us to wake up, and allow the individual person the sovereign freedoms constitutionally recognized. It remains to be seen how long we will tolerate invocations of tyranny in the name of religion. The pimping of God, in my opinion, is just another example of how sick America really is, sick with a sick and twisted evangelical religion and an apocalyptic culture. But, as Dr. de Hart and I pointed out in Yahweh the Two-Faced God, that should come as no surprise, for it is inherent in the system itself.

With Gingrich.,Santori,Romney and company whating to keep the slaughter going in Afghanistan and add Iran to the killing field list.. Welcome to the world of 1984 imagine a face being kick in by a boot forever. Correction the right word the evangelist should be using is Armageddonist not Apocalytic all the later word means is the reveling.

    “You can live a
    perfectly decent life not being Jewish,” says Charles Bronfman, “but I think
    you’re losing a lot — losing the kind of feeling you have when you know
    [that] throughout the world there are people who somehow or other have the
    same kind of DNA that you have.” (“Project Reminds Young Jews of Heritage,”
    The Washington Post, Jan. 17, 2000, p. A19)…

    And at the very shallow end of the Yahweh cult gene pool:

    “The faithful and discreet slave is the term used by Jehovah’s Witnesses to describe the collective body of “anointed” Christians alive on earth who expect to ascend to heaven at death. Nearly 12,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses profess to be members of this “remnant” of the 144,000.”

    These non-homo nephilim useful idiots even have an illustrious name for themselves:

    “The April 15, 1992 issue of The Watchtower carried an article entitled Jehovah’s Provision, the “Given Ones” which drew a parallel between ancient non-Israelites who had been assigned temple duties (the “Nethinim” and “sons of the servants of Solomon”) and Witness elders in positions of responsibility immediately under the oversight of the Governing Body who did not profess to be “anointed”.[48]

    I think we need to really consider the idea that Ashkenazi jews do not have homo nephilim DNA at all but are nothing more than useful idiots in the same vain as Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, etc. who all serve Yahweh.

    Who then are the real homo nephilim among us? Maybe this explains the US government’s obsession with DNA testing or the mormon’s obsession with genealogy.

    What a brilliant ego trap! Convince an ethnic group that they have special, superior DNA and then get them to do your bidding. Marvelous! And you can be sure they will all be discarded and thrown to the wolves when they are no longer useful.

    “Charles Bronfman, a main sponsor of the $210 million “Birthright Israel”
    project to “sell Jewishness” to American Jews, expresses a similar sentiment.
    He is co-chairman of the powerful Seagram company, and brother of Edgar
    Bronfman, Sr., president of the World Jewish Congress. “You can live a
    perfectly decent life not being Jewish,” says Charles Bronfman, “but I think
    you’re losing a lot — losing the kind of feeling you have when you know
    [that] throughout the world there are people who somehow or other have the
    same kind of DNA that you have.” (“Project Reminds Young Jews of Heritage,”

    Dr Farrell
    Just an important note:
    Not only do the politicians use their “deep devotion to Jesus” as a TACTIC to appear benign and truthful but many of the journalistic pundits and so-called authorities pretending to lead movements against the NWO — spew the same false rhetoric.

    What you are actually calling into question is a real TACTIC. Not just a simple aberration. This tactic is used with diabolical intent on many different fronts.

    There is nothing that these people will NOT say or do to achieve their nefarious goals.
    Lady LaLa

    • HAL838 on February 7, 2012 at 6:02 am

      THEY don’t actually HAVE a deep devotion to “Jesus.”

      They DO have a deep devotion to MONEY !

        In that you are right, Lady LaLa,

    Organized religions have always been used as a method of control of the masses by a handful of elites, especially the monotheistic religions. I remember a quote from the film “Cromwell” starring Richard Harris, where Cromwell says “the catholic church is no longer a religion, it is a political power”.

  7. Neru on February 5, 2012 at 1:30 am

    I can’t imagine a god card pulled in full election fever, it would never work in my country. It seems so silly too because it is like the sharia for the muslims, why are americans so bent on war with muslims since they are in the same bed sick = religion.
    Then again pull religion out of it and replace with racism and I get the religion where I live is sick in.
    For the elite it doesn’t matter what the trigger is as long there is one and foremost that we are blind to it. Helas it works too well.

    • SSNaga on February 5, 2012 at 4:00 am

      I recommend reading J.Farrell’s books for a deeper background understanding. He is very thorough &… enlightening on the “Why.”

      • Neru on February 5, 2012 at 5:30 pm

        Have red all his books. And religion may be widespred in use for social control/engenering it is certainly not the only one. And as an outsider living in a country where religion and politics are strictly apart, christian churches nothing but emty buildings, religion strictly a private thing. Yes, it sounds silly that a politician would bring god up. A president reprecents all people not only the flock he might privatly belong too.

        • SSNaga on February 5, 2012 at 11:10 pm

          If you’ve read all Farrell’s books, then you have an in-depth overview of why things are like they are: everything is concisely described & footnoted. Includes a valuable bibliography, too. It isn’t “make up.” The people of Earth are kept at odds with each… this ensures that the masses can never topple the rulers: Cycles keep repeating. Factions can seem to “go under,” but it’s “the Beast that grows new Heads.” Cheers.

    All religions and therefore virtually all belief systems are tailor made for manipulation by elites because corrupt people seek power. The corrupt people rise to the top tiers because they will do anything, say anything, cheat the system and sell their souls for power.

    By way of example consider, Al Gore. In the 1980’s Al Gore held a US Senate seat from the State of Tennessee. In order to elicit the politcal support of dirt poor tobacco farmers he would champion the virtues of tobacco use and using all the fervor of an old-time evangelical minister he reagled them with tales of the many days of hard labor he spent raising tobacco as a young man. Next example, in order to elicit the politcal support of Pro Lifers, Al Gore claimed to value the lives of unborn children. However, after being chosen to be Bill Clinton’s Vice Presidential running mate, Gore dumped those positions and adopted the opposite views. He never really believed what he preached. The man is a real charlatan who also claims to be a true believer in the idea that man is the cause of Global Warming all while living a lavish lifestyle that he preaches others must avoid.

    Perhaps it is not America that is sick because it may have, in your viewpoint, a sick and twisted evangelical religion and an apocalyptic culture but rather it is failing because it is filled with so many sick and twisted people who are raised to high levels of power by evil.

    I want to thank you Dr. Ferrell for helping me understand that the problem is not actually that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely rather the truth is much more simple, the corrupt seek power.

  11. SSNaga on February 4, 2012 at 8:49 am

    This is just a repetitive observation, filled with conceptual vapidity… It’s like saying, “Look! worms crawl; didjya Know That? Huh?” It no longer means anything, like a talk about the “meaning of meaning” (which, depending on the discussion group, could fill the entire Universe with copy). Try Catching Up To Speed with The “kNOW.” Perhaps, J. Farrell, you should read your Own books? The ideas offered in them are primarily rehashes, but valuable ones. Most understand the nature of the elect-hopeful’s Two-Faced, Fork-Tongued rhetoric in this “god-modeling” country of ‘Dead-Heads.’ There won’t be any “change,” sooner or too-later, for the Correct Realization Is, “NO we can’t” (‘if you actually attempt change, we’ll fix you’). Appreciate the timely “eye-opener” (didn’t you learn anything from the life of Tesla?). Pablum is “pablum.”

    • Spirit Splice on February 4, 2012 at 11:50 am

      No, most do not understand. Not even close. If most understood they wouldn’t be falling for it over and over and over. If they weren’t falling for it, the pols wouldn’t be doing it now would they?

    It’s Time To Wake Up – We Are All One
    It may be instructive at this point in the discussion for everyone to understand the significance of this short video.

    16 min.

    Modern Science is now beginning to confirm what
    Spirituality, Philosophy, Sages, Ancient teachings
    and psychedelics have been saying for millennia,
    that the entire Universe is One and that what we
    think of as “reality” is just an illusion..
    And the only real thing in the Universe is

    • SSNaga on February 4, 2012 at 10:18 am

      Consciousness (Units) Is Not “the only thing real” in the Universe (Creation, of Infinite Such Universes): 3 + 1. “Body & Mind” are Shadowy Reflections-Projections (girl n boy, Yoni~Phallus, Vesica-Pisces, Yin-Yang) of PreEXistence’s Actor, Being-Presence (Substance-Intelligence). It is, correctly, Illusion… In the Same Manner as conceptualizing A Gaming-Story, with the Protagonist & Antagonist… EXcept, You’re “It.” Consciousness is The Substrate (Soil/Soul) – Awareness is Mind that “Grows” (Rotates) In the Soil In Three Stages: Vegetative, Fowering, Fruiting. This is denoted as: “awareness, Awareness, AWARENESS”-(3rd stage is oft given appellations such as “cosmic consciousness,” “satori,” “samadhi,” “nirvana,” “tao,” &c). There are Two Kinds of “Fruiting:” One continually Falls back down (Entropy); the Other Achieves the Alchemical Realization of sSelf-Transformation & Rises UP from “the Tree” of Life As “M,Ore” (TranscEnds). Awareness is The Infinite P0tential that Lifts ItsSelf Into Infinite POtency, Raising the Soil/Soul With It (as “sS”) : the Illusion Disappears. (Yes, I have experienced spontaneous ‘cc,’ or I couldn’t speak with personal Awareness of It.) The plane of ImBalance (Seething Womb of Nothingness) doesn’t ReSolve ItsSelf Into Balance (Perfect Stillness, CORE) WithOut sSelf-Effort (the “magic Wand”), Incorporating Both It’s Dual Aspects, Soil/Soul-&-Spirit (Intrinsic Intelligence, The Mover, Stirrer). Every Universe is Herme(s)tically Dual (EM) Sealed (Impermeable-Impenetrable)… However, There is “An Escape Clause” In All Created Universal Sets (4-Fold), Graphically Illustrated in MichelangELo’s Sistine ChapEL Fresco, “Creation Of Adam” ~ It Also Reveals “The DisSoulution Of Adam,” How The Plane of ImBalance is ReSolved Into Perfect Equilibrium (this is Both Individualistic &/or Racial). LOOK… Carefully… (Push-Pull)…. The “Old EL” Hid The Truth In Plain Sight (The Dual Brilliance Barrier, -13/13+… The “Glass That Is ALIVE”). Here Comes The Coherent Beam That Opens Three DoOoRs… (Choose one, or One).

    The Freedom of Hippocracy is about all we have left.
    Maybe not

    • legioXIV on February 5, 2012 at 2:56 pm

      What freedom we shall have HAL838, is the freedom we shall gain.Once people finally realize that the old adage that “Government rests on the consent of the people to be governed” is true, then the possibilities could be truly endless. What we have is our refusal to live our lives on our knees. Once we all stand up and say “enough is enough” then we shall gain our freedom. I didn’t used to think so but i now feel that day is drawing ever closer.
      “Things fall apart;
      the centre cannot hold”
      I think that describes the situation the elites are facing at the moment, and once the centre finally breaks it will not be “mere anarchy” that will be “loosed upon the world” but the freedom of all us.

      • HAL838 on February 6, 2012 at 6:52 am

        And while you [legio] and others prognosticate
        about how so many will rise up to this foolishness

    Too much to really comment on—except to say “Look at the sad state of religion (primarily Christianity) in America’. Christianity is at the core of American Culture and yet it is under attack while virtually all other religions and cultures are being fostered and nurtured , particularly by our Chief Leader in Chump. “nuff said.

    • Spirit Splice on February 4, 2012 at 11:52 am

      It really doesn’t matter since all religions are the same and attempt to do the same – control.

      • Nidster - on February 6, 2012 at 9:07 am

        All humans have core beliefs. Agnosticism, Atheism, Antireligionism all have core beliefs. We all have our Leaders. We all have developed a system of worship. We all cling to an internal belief system. Now, regardless whether one labels it a ‘religion’ or not we are all susceptible to being controlled.
