Communications Published on April  2009

From (Mr.) IW @ US - Published on April 30th, 2008

With reference to your recent (personal) communication.... (1)

Understood and agreed.
The virus itself (a mix of human, avian, and swine flu) is suspicious, as is the earlier report of Baxter (2) "accidentally" putting live avian flu into some of its vaccines.
Additionally -  I actually went through the flu pandemics of 1957 (as a toddler) and 1969 (as a teenager). Those pandemics are usually listed along with 1918 as the flu pandemics of the 20th century.
I am sure that I got the flu during both epidemics, as I used to every winter before 1987, when I began getting annual flu shots. The flu was uncomfortable, and might have had me in bed for a few days, but it never sent me to the hospital.
Nobody ever made the big noise about the 1968-69 pandemic that they are doing about the current virus. Nor was it a matter of discussion in my family - and my Dad was a pediatrician in a state health department. (I followed the news then too, and so I would have remembered a big scare, just as well as I remember the Chicago convention, the invasion of Czechoslovakia, and the election of Nixon.)
It is very fishy indeed.

(Mr.) IW

(1) The referred to communication (dated April 30th)

No prophecy - just an impression after viewing several days worth of snippets of news via France24, BBC, Sky News, CNN, and other European countries:

Having lived long enough and through a few very serious epidemics - even before they were controlled as they are now -  polio, for example. The concerted "
let's panic" effort - accompanied by the "there is no need to panic" talk -  that is being promoted by governments and the media smells like fish - big and bad fish.

Mind you - when this situation initially arose we had no suspicion whatsoever of foul play or mass manipulation, however, the concerted methodology directed at "let's panic" has raised a red flag for us.

Did you know that... live Avian Flu virus was placed in Baxter vaccine materials and was sent to 18 countries? (1)

The Deerfield, Illinois-based pharmaceutical company Baxter International Inc. has just been caught shipping live avian flu viruses mixed with vaccine material to medical distributors in 18 countries. The "mistake" was discovered by the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada. The World Health Organization was alerted and panic spread throughout the vaccine community as health experts asked the obvious question: How could this have happened?

Dear M de P
I call your attention to the following news report in because I think it is relevant.

A Message from the workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
April 21, 2009
It was with great sadness that we were informed late last night of the death of Garabandal visionary Mari Loli Lafleur in Boston after a long illness. She was very much loved by everyone involved in the promotion of Garabandal. We ask your prayers for Mari Loli and her family and close friends.

Peace to You miguel!
In reference to your  mailing... (1)

We all know that NOTHING will stop satan from trying! This does not amaze me. But, as you have always said, those that have eyes that see and ears that hear know where this is coming from.

Unfortunately, there are people we must try to urgently reach to open their eyes and ears before it is too late.

I pray we ALL will do something to try. You, of course, take us to the water, by example, and we must do the same. I promise to do the same.
God Bless you,


(1) Mailing in question....


This is why we refuse to say anymore: "I've seen it all!" or "They just can't top this!" - we certainly do not want to invoke the manifestation of yet another outrageous heresy.

Providentially we ran into the advertisement of this book: The Virgin and the Priest by Mark Gibbs (a)

Our comments may be found after the quote.


For the first time ever in print, The Virgin and The Priest unravels the Infancy Narratives of the New Testament to reveal how they were  compiled to protect the truth of Jesus' parentage from those deemed incapable of receiving it.
An ancient formula, explaining why "holy births" in the messianic lineage resulted from questionable sexual relationships, was insinuated into the gospel narratives. These trysts of the Old Testament heroes were necessary in order to purify Jesus' ancestry and allow his genetic inheritance to be "sinless." Far from advocating a miraculous birth, the New Testament informs us that Zacharias, the priestly father of John the Baptist, was Jesus' biological father.
This information is long overdue but absolutely vital to understand the truth of what really happened two thousand years ago:
 •  Jesus was the younger brother of John the Baptist.

 • A bitter sibling rivalry was behind Jesus' failure to gain public acceptance - failure that led to his execution and collapse of the messianic mission.
Although the Church discarded the truth in favor of a theological construction, much of the real story was always known to secret society elites, such as the Knights Templar. However, they acknowledged John the Baptist, not Jesus, as the true Christ.
This story of Jesus and John the Baptist was crystallized in The Parable of The Prodigal Son and documented in the Dead Sea Scrolls,..

The M+G+R Foundation Comments

1. If there is someone walking on this Earth that can categorically, and with absolute certainty, state that such claim is the greatest perversion of the truth yet, is miguel de Portugal - and he does! It even surpasses the alleged conspiratorial alliance between Jesus and Judas Iscariot

2. The publication of the quoted book has forced our hand to speak about the so frequently invoked Dead Sea Scrolls - statements which have been in our proverbial "ink well" for one year.

We have had quite an interest in reviewing the newly acclaimed "fountain of truth", yet did not know where to find a reliable source. Providence led miguel to a book he did not know existed.  The book was at a used book store in Florida [God does all He can to reduce our expenses...].

Its title: "The Dead Sea Scrolls - A New Translation" by Messrs. M. Wise, M., Abegg, Jr. and E. Cook., Published by HarperSan Francisco. Copyright 1996, ISBN 0-0-069200-6 (cloth) and 0-0-069201-4 (pbk.)

The book reproduced all the texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls which had been translated as far as that year.

miguel literally "plowed" through such gift from Heaven to confirm what he already new "otherwise":  IT DOES NOT, in any way, invalidate ANYTHING that we may find in a reasonable translation the Old and New Testaments. What may appear different is so "off-the-wall" that it falls to nearest land fill, so to speak, by its own dead weight. In actuality, the contents of the Dead Sea Scrolls reinforces many key items found in the Old and New Testament.

You know that we do not deny that there is other valid information outside (but complementary) of the Holy Scriptures (b), but we assure you that you can dispose of ANY claim which, invoking the Dead Sea Scrolls, invalidate the underpinnings of Monotheistic Faith.

We ask you to share this information with as many individuals that you can reach and we encourage the serious students of the Word of God to locate the referenced book on the Dead Sea Scrolls and review it.  Grant it - it is "heavy reading", and, at times, plain boring, but for the serious students of the Word of God it may be well worth the effort.

Now, we will see, how long after this communication hits the "air waves"  we start hearing about "new and revealing translations" of the Dead Sea Scrolls.... (with the intent to invalidate what we have written above) - Thanks be to God we are used to that by now!

From WO - Published on April 23rd, 2009

In reference to the Escriva statue formally installed at the Vatican by Ratzinger (1), have you looked at it closely?

Enlarge it (2) and look at the Latin inscription. It reads: Et ego, si exaltatus fuero a terra, omnes traham ad meipsum. Have you ever translated this/had someone translate it for you?

While I am a truly lousy linguist, I was curious about this. Interestingly, I had trouble getting anything coherent out of the usual free online translators. So, with what I gleaned from them, what I remember of Latin, my trusty dictionary, this is what I came up with:

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things toward my purpose (or toward myself).

This is beyond demonic. Now my use of syntax, proper cases/tenses may well be slightly off - but no matter how you translate this (and I spent a LOT of time on this!), it is not good. (3)

Though I never doubted the meaning/symbolism of this image of Escriva at St. Peter's, in my mind this solidifies it all the more as the fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation, referenced by Daniel and Our Lord.

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that read:  "When Jesus said love your enemies, he probably meant that you shouldn't K-I-L-L them."  How far we have veered from the narrow path. 

I was struck as a kid when I saw a pack of Pall Mall cigarettes.  It had a the motto "In Hoc Signo Vinces!"  Later in Latin class I learned that meant "In this sign I will Conquer!"  The shining cross at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge, Constantine's Victory.  Little did I know the significance of that.

Taking history and religion in Catholic School we were taught of knighthood and chivalry, Sir Galahad and the Holy Grail and of course the Crusades.  We seemed to be readied for battle against the infidel ourselves.  It was very romantic but not compassionate.  I confess a little admiration for Saladin (2) partly because he seemed the noble savage but mostly because he beat the pants off the Crusaders.

I also remember joining the Sodality in eighth grade in a ceremony that featured the hymn, "An army of youths fighting the battle of truth, we are fighting for Christ the Lord..."  Somehow all this made sense; but there was a haunting sense deep inside that something was amiss here.  I don't remember the first Christians wielding swords in the Coliseum.  My recollection was of St. Peter being admonished by Jesus for cutting off the ear of Pilate's man.

As a life-long Catholic what am I to make of my Church (2)  It always seems to be protecting its image instead of proclaiming the Good News.  How are we to follow the narrow path when it's deliberately being hid.  Obfuscation, double-speak, disinformation.  Don't we remember who was called the "Father of lies?"

Jesus said the truth will make us free.  The truth needs no proof or explanation.  The "Truth" said "Give away all you have and come follow me!"

In reference to The antiChrist Is Identified (2) ....

What's gotten into you these days, M de P (3)?

Taking some out-of-context (4) questions/comments by B16 that were probably RHETORICALLY used and turning them against him?

Such fecal (5) 'announcements' will only serve to deter attention from TRUE evil.

Let's consider a simplified example here........

A priest might start a homily by saying, "Why pray to God?", with the intent, of course, to continue: "Because...".

But say a liberal reporter took just that first line, and then called it blasphemous.

Oftentimes, posing a rhetorical question provides the best basis for a lesson to follow.

Distorting 666 to 616 based on some obscure Codex? The Bible needs correction? (6)

I would guess you've already seen news (1)  announcing that "Tony Blair tells the Pope: you're wrong on homosexuality"

Mr. Blair is quoted saying “When people quote the passages in Leviticus condemning homosexuality, I say to them — if you read the whole of the Old Testament and took everything that was there in a literal way, as being what God and religion is about, you'd have some pretty tough policies across the whole of the piece.”

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but when Jesus says "This is my body" —speaking privately to his disciples in the same way he would speak plainly to them whenever explaining parables, etc.— there is no other way to interpret it than literally (2).  Jesus always explained everything to his disciples (especially when in private) so they understood the truth.

However, after reading the above article about Tony Blair, I wonder how long it will be before he suggests that the Catholic Church should also remove the "hard belief" of transubstantiation (3) (ignoring John chapter 6... like the weak disciples who say "This is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it?"), so that unity with other Christian faiths becomes possible.  It certainly would not surprise me.

A few items about Tony Blair that I find more than curious:

(a) He has been (put himself) at the forefront of the push for peace in the middle east recently
(b) His Faith Foundation seeks a global reformation of religious belief (especially the Catholic Church, it seems)
(c) He is now seeking the crown of the EU presidency

He certainly walks like a duck, and talks like a duck... (4)

May God continue to bless you and that you do!

My feelings are the same as those of IW (Private Forum letter dated April 6th (1)).

I'm eagerly anticipating what God has in store for us, and the sooner we start, the better.

Like the published writer today, I hope that I'm not being foolish.

May God's Will (2) be done.

From miguel de Portugal @ EU - USA -  Published April 5th 2009 [Palm Sunday]

It not 5 AM Eastern Standard Time yet and President Obama has finished a rousing speech to an adoring crowd in Prague. A speech centered on the control and elimination of nuclear weapons on a planetary scale.

Acknowledging the fact that President Obama, in his innocence, really believed what he stated, this is what we must say as Divine Justice demands we do:

1. The only way to successfully achieve the, for example, prevention of a North Korea pursuing the development of a nuclear force of deterrence can only be achieved by the establishment of a New International World Order (1) where a central global government could effectively dictate and implement policy in any nation of the world.

We have seen that the most stringent slaps-on-the wrist by the UN Security Council or even the US unilaterally do as much harm as a toothless lion under heavy sedation. Anyone who doubts this should count the US Presidents that the Castro regime has seen come and go and how submissive Iran has been since it attacked the US Embassy in Teheran decades ago.

2. The new steps to prevent nuclear material or other weapons of mass destruction falling into terrorist hands (2) will have exactly the same effect that closing the barn door after all - animals and barn, less the door - have been stolen.

3. We firmly believe in the applicability of "Yes, we can change!" but only for short periods (unless, of course, God is involved in the process). We now have nearly fourteen thousand years of confirmed recorded history (3) and man, without God, is incapable of change. The best man can do is to pretend that he changed while someone's heavy military boot is firmly resting on his neck.... which brings us back to no. 1 above.

Yes, we would also like to believe in Santa Claus and the Three Wise Kings bringing gifts while we sleep but, mercifully we know that such fantasy is that - just a fantasy and that the only reality is God and that the only way the world can place its house in order is by turning to God. Mankind has had a chance to do so voluntarily since after the time known as Noah's Flood (3) , its leadership has been recently warned (4) about the consequences of not doing so, but man has failed again. Now man will turn to God otherwise (5).

(1) How will the establishment of the New International Order  will be completed.
(2) The merchant of death  - The widespread availability of bio-weapons Part I - Part II
(3) The real time line of Creation
(4) Warned World - Warned Roman Catholic Church
(5) The method which just does not fail....

It is interesting how the Benedict XVI functions...

According to the news report (1): "Ever since he apparently misspoke about the excommunication of Mexican lawmakers on a trip to Brazil in 2007, the Vatican asks reporters to submit questions in advance and then makes a selection, giving Benedict time to prepare a response."

Considering that Jesus clearly instructed his followers to do just the opposite through Luke chapter 12, verses 11 and 12:

11 "When they take you before synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how to defend yourselves or what to say, 12 because when the time comes, the Holy Spirit will teach you what you should say."

Apparently, either the Benedict XVI is not familiar with these verses (unlikely), or he is counting on reporters (and perhaps Catholics) not being familiar with them.

Maybe this new tactic in dealing with reporters is a sort of "popemobile" (2)  intended to protect him from bullets of another kind.

Thanks, as always!
