....scientists have established the first case of the new H1N1 influenza ("swine flu") strain showing resistance to Tamiflu, the main antiviral flu drug? (1)

The World Health Organization declared an influenza pandemic earlier this month and advised governments to prepare for a long-term battle against an unstoppable new flu virus. The WHO had no immediate comment on the case of Tamiflu resistance.

The United Nations agency raised its pandemic flu alert to phase 6 on a six-point scale, indicating the first influenza pandemic since 1968 is under way.

This case does not change the recommendation to use Tamiflu, the institute said.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: It will be interesting to see how this particular "chess game" will develops.

.....June 26th at 2 PM came and went and the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in Ethiopia did not say a word about the Ark of the Covenant allegedly kept in Ethiopia, under his care, as promised. (1)

Considering the coverage (1)(2) given to the announcement and the comments made, some as much as six days before the announced event, maybe he was "convinced" by those who wield the power to fade into the woodwork. After all, "their" probable purpose and ultimate plan had been amply publicized.

If we consider the regal like status maintained by the person of an Orthodox Patriarch plus his very holy status in the eyes of the faithful, most specially in an African country, he must have had every intention of making the announcement but... was "convinced" otherwise.

Considering the fact that within a week after we wrote/faxed to a few key news outlets and a handful of officials the hard-to-argue-with proof that there was no real Cuban Missile Crisis (3), "they" logged nine Missile Crisis specials in a seven day period - preempting, on short notice, prime time programs. We would not be surprised that they saw our handwriting on the wall again. After all - our credibility in "their" eyes has only increased since the early nineties.

We now get faster responses by posting and e-mailing than we did in the early nineties by snail-mailing.

Now, let's see what their next step will be. A fall in the bathtub by the Patriarch?

.....Legatus is being singled out as the trigger for the financial collapse? (1)

What is Legatus?: Legatus—Latin for "ambassador" (and the term for a general in the Roman army)—is a worldwide networking group "designed exclusively for top-ranking Catholic business leaders." Its main stated duty is to bring such leaders together for closed monthly networking meetings. The group calls itself "the conduit connecting two powerful realities, the challenge of top-tier business leadership and a religious tradition second to none."

History of Legatus: The group was founded in 1987 by Tom Monaghan, the devout Catholic who founded Domino's Pizza. It now boasts "thousands" of members throughout America and in Europe.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Considering what we have announced for years - from the intermediate steps (2) to the ultimate goal (3) - these allegations do not seem to be very much "off the mark".

.....there is talk (1) - unconfirmed at the source as of yet - that once the "swine flu" vaccine is available for mass use in July its application will be mandatory in accordance with the Level 6 classification the World Health Organization assigend to said flu?

Vaccine against the "swine flu" will be ready in July. It has been developed in half the time it used to take to develop flu vaccines due to Baxter International's patented technology. This means about 13 weeks from drawing board to injection instead of the usual 26. Never mind time for testing to see if it is safe.

You remember Baxter, don't you? It is the company that in February delivered seasonal flu vaccine to 18 countries that was laced with live "bird flu" virus.

With the declaration earlier this month by the World Health Organization (WHO) that the "swine flu" has reached pandemic Level 6 (they had to change the definition of level 6 to make this determination work), a whole series of bureaucratic prerogatives have been triggered, and local, state, national, and international agencies have been further empowered. In the U.S., all laws and conditions are now in place to see to it that you are forced to be injected with the new "swine flu" vaccine, whether you want to be or not. (3) In the U.S., the government is now able to mandate universal mass vaccinations at gunpoint.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, there will be no exemptions. "A certain amount of human wastage" is expected.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: The only good news, besides the reality of God, of course, is: The worse it gets, the faster the end of These Times will be reached.

.....a small Connecticut church creates stir with gay exorcism video? (1)

The 20-minute video posted on YouTube by Manifested Glory Ministries is being called abuse by gay and youth advocates, who are demanding an investigation. But a church official this week denied that the teenager was injured or that the church is prejudiced.

"We believe a man should be with a woman and a woman should be with a man," the Rev. Patricia McKinney told The Associated Press. "We have nothing against homosexuals. I just don't agree with their lifestyle."

Published on June 24th, 2009  [Traditional celebration of the birth of John the Baptist]

.....the celebration of the birth of John the Baptist should be on the 25th?

The time gap between the birth of Jesus and John is based on the following Scripture:

24 And after those days, Elizabeth his wife conceived, and hid herself five months, saying: 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he hath had regard to take away my reproach among men. 26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. [Luke 1]


56 And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house. [Luke 1]

Of course, one could argue that the Scripture states "in the sixth month" and "about three months" and not "exactly six months later" and "three months" but, being that these scriptural readings were used to set the date of the birth of John the Baptist, it would have been logical to choose June 25th and not the 24th. After all, the birth of Jesus is observed on December 25th (1) and not the 24th.

.....when Jesus said: Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect. [Matthew 5:48] He was not asking for something that was not possible?

The Faithful automatically discounts that command (yes, it is not a mere suggestion - it is a command for those who wish to follow Him) because it appears impossible - unattainable. Who could possibly be perfect as God, the Father, is perfect?

If we carefully note the context within which that command was given, then we can see how attainable it really is.

Let us review the context:

44 But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: 45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust. 46 For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? 47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? [Matthew 5]

Immediately after verse 44-47 (above) comes verse 48 (below) which is the one we opened today's column with:

Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.

Therefore the perfection of the Father Jesus spoke of is clearly defined in verses 44-47.

The closer we get to fully "Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you" the closer we get to be Perfect as the Father is Perfect, which, by the way, is Absolute Perfection.

Hard to do? So are push-ups and dieting! The difference is that with the Grace of God we can indeed learn love our enemies, learn to do good to those who hate us and learn to pray for our persecutors and calumniators.

Therefore, brethren, we spend lifetimes trying to outdo the proverbial Joneses, climbing to the top of the ladder of our profession or trade (while stepping upon everyone that does not get out of the way) etc., etc. but... what do we have at the end? Nothing lasting. Absolutely nothing!

Have you ever seen an armored truck trailing a funeral procession as it weaves its way to "everyone's final neighborhood" - a cemetery? But the closer you get to the Perfection of the Father, the closer to the Father you will spend Eternity.

...Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State, has had the courtesy of placing in our hands another (1) "hard copy" confirmation that the revealed Third Part of the Secret of Fatima was a falsification of the truth?

In a book - The Last Secret of Fatima (2) - which is presented as a book authored by Cardinal Bertone with the foreword by Benedict XVI but which in really is just an interview with Cardinal Bertone, we find out/read, among other things, that:

(a) During his meeting with Sister Lucia, a meeting requested by H.H. John Paul II, there was not a professional interpreter present;
(b) The interview was not recorded; and
(c) In it we read that:

"I showed her these pages (3) . Obviously, her vision was failing. So I let her physically touch her letter, turn it over in her hands, examine it, and take time to identify it and put it into focus. Those were long, suspenseful moments, and we sat there looking at each other wondering what would happen. Then Sister Lucia exclaimed: "Yes, yes, these are my sheets and my envelope; these are the sheets I used and this is my writing. This is my envelope, this is my writing, this is my text."

We do not think it necessary that we comment further on the above. Considering the importance of the interview - commanded directly by H.H. John Paul II - (a) and (b) are nonsensical and, as for item (c) - it does not speak, but "yells" for itself.

....baton-wielding police violently dispersed dozens of members of the opposition of the "Blessed by the International Community" Georgian government, and yet there is hardly a peep in the western news? (1)

Witnesses, including an AFP photographer, said dozens of police descended on the protesters when they gathered outside a police detention centre where clashes between police and the opposition had broken out last month. "People were running to escape and the police were chasing us and beating us," a participant reported.

An AFP photographer said both uniformed police and men in civilian clothes were hitting protesters with batons and that several people had been injured. Police seized cameras and other equipment from photographers attempting to cover the incident. At least one photographer was badly beaten.

Imagine how it is going to be when "they" falsify the Second Coming of Christ.

....CIA Director Leon Panetta says former Vice President Dick Cheney's criticism of the Obama administration's approach to terrorism almost suggests "he's wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point."? (1)

The M+G+R Foundation comments: It seems that God is pushing us to address this issue, which has been in the proverbial ink-well for over two weeks. Therefore, we now will.

President Obama' policies have been relentlessly interfering with the plans of those who are "pulling the strings" since before, but including, the assassination of President Kennedy (2), the theatrics of the Cuban Missile Crisis (3), through the 9-11 attacks, anthrax in the mail panic, Iraq's alleged WMD, etc., etc.

Speaking clearly: For much less than that President Kennedy and Dr. M. L. King were assassinated. Thanks be to God, "they" have enough sense to realize that if something happens to President Obama, he will become, not only a US Martyr, but a Martyr for all the dreams and hopes of most of the World - dreams and hopes which do not coincide with "their" plans. Just as Ché Guevara became much greater than life, thus, far more influential than when alive, "they" would be insane in considering harming the person of President Obama, unless, of course it were through a Princess Diana type "accident" (4).

The most effective - and well proven in 9-11 - technique would be a really major attack on US soil. That would slam the brakes on all irritating (to them) policies of the Obama Administration. Not only that, President Obama would be forced then to dance to "their" (5) music while abandoning all his dreams and promises.

Therefore, Mr. Panetta has really hit the proverbial nail on its head.

Let us continue to pray, for only God can minimize the suffering that awaits mankind while Divine Justice is dispensed and Prophecy fulfilled.

....only on the basis of the effort invested on debunking the effect of subliminal advertising one could assured of its effectiveness?

We state "...only on the basis..." because there are so many indirect professional confirmation of brainwashing techniques (1) that are very effective, that it is amazing to the extent some have gone to disprove it - even reputable hoax busters (2) has jumped in the bandwagon.

Let us carefully read - with and open mind - what Wikipedia states (3):

....James McDonald Vicary pioneered the use of eye-blink analysis to obtain clues about subjects' levels of emotional tension when exposed to various stimuli. He also studied the phenomena of impulse buying and word association.

He is most famous for having perpetrated a fraudulent subliminal advertising study in 1957. In it, he claimed that an experiment in which moviegoers were repeatedly shown 0.03-second advertisements for Coca-Cola and popcorn significantly increased product sales. Based on his claims the CIA produced a report "The operational potential of subliminal perception" in 1958 that led to subliminal cuts being banned in the US. It suggested that “Certain individuals can at certain times and under certain circumstances be influenced to act abnormally without awareness of the influence”. When challenged later to replicate the study, he failed to find significant results. Some doubt the original study was ever carried out at all.

In a 1962 Advertising Age interview, Vicary admitted that the original study was "a gimmick" and that the amount of data was "too small to be meaningful". He shied away from media attention after the disclosure. His papers are held by the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.

The cover up is so transparent that is beyond amusing.

(a) Some "Joe the Plumber" claims, allegedly without producing supporting data, a simple technique to manipulate people's minds without their consent.
(b) The CIA, obviously having nothing better to do, study, and produce a report on the issue - a Secret Report, mind you - in the same year - 1957 (4).
(c) Five years later "Joe the Plumber" voluntarily (?) exposes his "fraud" and drops out from public view.
(d) The CIA report, which was based on allegedly a false claim from an unknown "Joe the Plumber", was declassified thirty seven years later and publicly posted fifty years later.

Brethren, either the general public and the first two tiers of highly educated individuals in the world are legally blind or we can truly read minds and see through two inch think plates of lead.

Someone should inform former President George W. Bush that someone stole their campaign money by using such technique in his first Presidential campaign. Used, of course, until they were caught "red handed" and exposed on a prime time TV news program; an accusation that was nonchalantly dismissed by his campaign management.

Those rays came from gems that She was wearing on Her fingers when She appeared to Catherine Labouré at Rue de Bac, Paris, in 1830. The key part of this particular and highly unusual event (i.e., Mary wearing jewelry) was that Catherine noticed that there were some gems on Mary's fingers which had no light emanating from them. When Catherine asked Mary why they were not shining, she was told that they represented the Graces that humanity was not asking for.

Of course - it will not completely take the place of being present in body (assuming you were having Holy Communion) however, if approached in the same manner as you would when fully participating in Mass in a church or a chapel, the merits will be many.

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

.........a Protestant pastor in Sarah Palin's home town says the AntiChrist is gay? (1)

The M+G+R Foundation comments: There is a minor detail, however... he has reinterpreted the Holy Word of God.... and that is the point of this posting. We are not concerned about the sexual orientation of the AntiChrist. We just want to provide our readers yet another example on how the Word of God is manipulated by those "in charge" for whatever point they wish to make.

The "shepherd" in questions states:

Sodomy is the only sin for which God came down from heaven to destroy. Though God dealt with many other sins in various ways, there is no other for which he came down from heaven to verify and destroy.


But will the Antichrist be a homosexual? Having seen what the Bible says of sodomy, we have no further to look than the book of Daniel, chapter 11 to find our answer. It says, “Neither shall he [Antichrist] regard... the desire of women....” As I said at the onset, I am not the first to draw attention to this, but the verbiage is clear.

First of all, according to his statement ....God dealt with many other sins in various ways, there is no other for which he came down from heaven to verify and destroy. He seems to have forgotten the worldwide cataclysm (2) we know as Noah's Flood.

Secondly, the part of the Book of Daniel he alludes to (notice - he did not quite quote it) is Daniel 11:37. Let us look at how that particular verse reads, starting with the original one - the Bible of the Jews - the Tanakh.

The Tanakh: He will not have regard for the god of his ancestors or for the one dear to women; he will not have regard from any god, but will magnify himself above all. [Here the reference is to the gods of the women.]

The Douay-Rheims Bible: ...he shall make no account of the God of his fathers: and he shall follow the lust of women, and he shall not regard any gods: for he shall rise up against all things. [Here the reference is that he will lust after women.]

The New International Version: He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. [Here, again, the reference is to the gods of the women.]

The New American Standard Bible: He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. [Here the translators are beginning to change the god preferred by the women to he not preferring women.]

The King James Bible Version: Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. [Here we see where the New American Standard Bible got their version.]

and finally, from the Spanish version prepared by Msgr. Straubinger - which we consider the most accurate translation fro original texts that we have found in English, Spanish or Portuguese....

Msgr. Straubinger Version (translated from Spanish by The M+G+R Foundation): He will not respect the gods of his ancestors, nor the preferred divinity of the women. He will not mind any god; because he will exalt himself above them all. [Here we see the brilliance of Msgr. Starubinger's translation - "the preferred divinity of the women" which even surpasses the Tanakh in accuracy. ]

Once again we illustrate the great importance of knowing (3) how to read, assimilate and teach the Word of God - most specially when others are erroneously placing their blind faith in every word uttered.

...the federal government mistakenly made public a 266-page report, its pages marked “highly confidential,” that gives detailed information about hundreds of the nation's civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons?

...a Senior Canadian officials left a binder full of confidential nuclear documents in a television studio and made no attempt to retrieve them?

The binder was found in a CTV television studio after a visit by Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt. CTV, which kept the binder for six days before breaking the news, said the documents showed the government would spend far more money on a troubled nuclear reactor than it had acknowledged.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: We have enough speech left (after going almost "speechless" at the news) to say: In God we (continue to) trust but every one else will have to prove him/herself first.

 Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh [Matthew 18:7]

...most likely had the example of Eleazar in mind?

2 Machabees 6: 18-31

18 Eleazar one of the chief of the scribes, a man advanced in years, and of a comely countenance, was pressed to open his mouth to eat swine's flesh. 19 But he, choosing rather a most glorious death than a hateful life, went forward voluntarily to the torment. 20 And considering in what manner he was come to it, patiently bearing, he determined not to do any unlawful things for the love of life.

21 But they that stood by, being moved with wicked pity, for the old friendship they had with the man, taking him aside, desired that flesh might be brought, which it was lawful for him to eat, that he might make as if he had eaten, as the king had commanded of the flesh of the sacrifice: 22 That by so doing he might be delivered from death: and for the sake of their old friendship with the man they did him this courtesy. 23 But he began to consider the dignity of his age, and his ancient years, and the inbred honour of his grey head, and his good life and conversation from a child: and he answered without delay, according to the ordinances of the holy law made by God, saying, that he would rather be sent into the other world. 24 For it doth not become our age, said he, to dissemble: whereby many young persons might think that Eleazar, at the age of fourscore and ten years, was gone over to the life of the heathens: 25 And so they, through my dissimulation, and for a little time of a corruptible life, should be deceived, and hereby I should bring a stain and a curse upon my old age.

26 For though, for the present time, I should be delivered from the punishments of men, yet should I not escape the hand of the Almighty neither alive nor dead. 27 Wherefore by departing manfully out of this life, I shall shew myself worthy of my old age: 28 And I shall leave an example of fortitude to young men, if with a ready mind and constancy I suffer an honourable death, for the most venerable and most holy laws. And having spoken thus, he was forthwith carried to execution. 29 And they that led him, and had been a little before more mild, were changed to wrath for the words he had spoken, which they thought were uttered out of arrogancy. 30 But when he was now ready to die with the stripes, he groaned, and said: O Lord, who hast the holy knowledge, thou knowest manifestly that whereas I might be delivered from death, I suffer grevious pains in body: but in soul am well content to suffer these things because I fear thee.

31 Thus did this man die, leaving not only to young men, but also to the whole nation, the memory of his death for an example of virtue and fortitude.

Let us not forget Eleazar's faith nor his moving example since many of us will be called to make a similar choice.

...on May 29, last Friday, the U.S. Embassy at Baghdad planned to hold what the invitation said was the first-ever U.S. Embassy Gay Pride Theme Party at Baghdaddy's, which is the embassy employee association's pub? (1)

"Come celebrate the start of Summer with color . . . and in costume!" the May 10 invitation says. "Dress in drag or as a gay icon. All are welcome." The invitation was attached to what was called an "All Hands Alerts" e-mail.

An embassy spokesman said by way of explanation: "This is an event organized and sponsored by a group of employees. Given the lack of places to meet in Baghdad, the embassy allows groups to use its social facilities for events on a first-come, first-served basis."

The M+G+R Foundation comments: As you may see, the US authorities - regardless of the Administration in charge - do not seem to run out of ideas on how to make Muslims hate us more and want us out of their lands at any cost - any cost.

The level of stupidity of the responsible authorities can only be explained when one acknowledges the reality that God has given satan a free hand for forty two months.

God has given us two hints: (a) The collapse of the US financial icons; and (b) The collapse of the US Industrial icons, GM and Chrysler. To anyone who is not able to see what will collapse next, we would recommend much, much prayer.

Published on June 1st, 2009 the latest Berlusconi scandal raged in Italy - a scandal which is begining to rock the much jaded (Yawn!) Italian electorate - the Italian Bishop's Conference response was reported by the press (1) thus:

In what many see as a sign of Mr. Berlusconi’s grip on the levers of power in Italy and the Vatican, the Italian Bishops Conference this week essentially gave him a pass, or at least a no comment, calling for “adult behavior,” but saying that each person’s conduct was a matter “of individual conscience.”

The latest scandal is well summarized by the same report (1) thus:

When the wife of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi took to the front pages this month to announce that she wanted a divorce and accused him of dallying with very young women, it seemed like yet another storm that Italy’s most powerful man would easily weather. For years, Italy has winked at Mr. Berlusconi, where other nations might have glared.

First came a rare and inescapable torrent of speculation — in blogs, on television and radio, at dinner tables across Italy — about the nature and origins of his relationship with Noemi Letizia, a pretty blond aspiring model whose 18th birthday party he attended in Naples last month, and who has said she calls him Daddy. This was the party that caused Mr. Berlusconi’s wife to declare their marriage, one year older than Ms. Letizia, over.

At least the Italian Bishop's Conference is being consistent with Vatican Policy, after all, on January 2002 the Vatican published a ruling that Pederasty is only a crime against customs. (2)

...the North Korean nuclear threat is being greatly downplayed in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists (1) and that the overall threat of a "rogue" state building (or otherwise owning) a nuclear device and delivering it is next to nil, according to a professional report aired in Al-Jazeera, the Arab CNN equivalent?

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Let us see... An obviously minor flu outbreak has been treated as if it were a raging Spanish Flu pandemic, purposely throwing the world population into a near panic


..... North Korea seems to be celebrating, on our behalf, the 4th of July every day by launching missiles and running explicitly forbidden nuclear tests at will


..... Iran has served notice to the world that they will continue their nuclear program....


....Pakistan and India - two nuclear powers - are as politically stable as a bowl of Jell-O being transported through a very bumpy road...


.....the world is being told by experts that no one should really worry about a nuclear threat.

There seems to be something wrong, very wrong, with "this picture". Of course, if we understand that the flu panic is being programmed and controlled by "them" and it is God, not "them", Who truly controls the use of a nuclear device, then the picture makes sense, doesn't it? You see, "their" plan does not include the use of nuclear weapons.
