“Finally, I must repeat what my friend Winston Churchill included
in his last-minute words of wisdom to me on the evening of the day that
he became prime minister of Britain and sent me here [New York] as his
personal representative. I quote: ‘The United States of America is the
mightiest force in the world and can remain so. When the nation is
united in a righteous cause, it will prevail over all evil interests,
over all evil interests.’ Sir William Stephenson (quoted in Intrepid’s
Last Case, by William Stevenson, 1983, Villard Books)

The United States is about to face a world that will present the
gravest challenge to its existence since the Civil War. As articles in
this newspaper (most recently “China indictment may come soon,” MSNBC, 6
June 1998) have made clear, our national security has been sold to
China. America’s giant corporate “defense” firms, one can assume, were
motivated by greed; our political elite more out of ideological
comradarie with totalitarian regimes.

None of us would know this if it were not for newspapers like
WorldNetDaily. Most mainline reporters content themselves with living in
a world constructed by those far brighter than they. It is a fantasy
world in which all views are equal, right or wrong does not exist, and
who prevails at the end of the day does not really matter. In such a
make-believe world, the reporter’s only obligation is to report a
smattering of the facts, mixed with the most savory opposing viewpoints.

The analyst, on the other hand, is paid for what he can make of the
facts. The analyst has a clear picture of the world as it really is. His
conclusions matter. A candid reading of the facts that have seeped into
the mainstream news media regarding the Clinton administration and our
national “defense” firms indicates this: China must now be presumed to
have access to our most secret military and diplomatic communications,
our missile guidance and targeting systems, and the tools and equipment
required to build state-of-the-art cruise missiles and jet fighters. The
impending Chinese presence at Long Beach, California, is conveniently
close to our next-generation submarine warfare secrets.

To America’s corporate chieftains and political elite, isolated by
their money and power in a fantasy world of their own creation, reality
is about to make a shocking appearance. America’s defense secrets — the
power necessary to preserve our own and our friends’ freedom in a
dangerous world — have been sold for a few pieces of silver. This blood
money has lined the tailored pockets of failing corporate bosses, and
bought two more years in power for a politically corrupt, morally
degenerate, and intellectually bankrupt Democratic party leadership.

For those who think this is a game, and content themselves with
believing that America has no enemies in the world, you have set the
stage for the next act. You are about to learn that your rose- colored
fantasy world is filled with treachery; crafted by the intellects of
enemies whom you did not believe existed.

China’s answer to democracy in Tiananmen Square nine years ago was to
send in tanks and crush its own young people. Do you imagine these
soldiers will be any kinder and gentler when they move to dismember
Taiwan? How many thousands of young Taiwanese have you condemned to the
crushing brutality of China’s tanks, in a world you never thought
existed, while America stands helplessly by — knowing that Los Angeles
is targeted by ICBMs from China — “made in the U.S.A.”?

America’s cities have remained unprotected at the insistence of the
same Democratic party in Congress and the White House that sold its
defense secrets. As my friend Howard Phillips rightly points out:

Since 1983, we have spent some $46 billion [on the Strategic
Defense Initiative]. And this year, exactly like every other year, this
money will buy not a single solitary piece of equipment that might
possibly be used to keep even one foreign missile from landing on the
American people. (Issues and Strategy Bulletin #597)

In addition to providing for its ascendancy over Asia, China is
supplying terrorist and rogue states with the means to impose their
tyranny over our freedom at the push of the same nuclear button. Will
America abandon Japan, South Korea, or Israel — when the price of
solidarity is New York? Using American-supplied technology, Chinese
terrorist clients will soon be able to launch a nuclear strike against
an unprotected American city — at the moment of their choosing. In case
you have forgotten, here is what that looks like:

Such shadows had been burned into the rock at Hiroshima. I wandered
through that wasteland after the bombing, before the public understood
about radiation death. Suddenly the shadows of a mother and child
appeared before me. Yet neither a mother nor her infant were anywhere to
be seen. Nor was there light in the sky to cast such shadows.

It was absurd. There were these stark silhouettes on the ground, down
to the bun of the mother’s hair and the child bound to her back with its
tiny head lolling in sleep. Then I saw that the real woman and the child
had been vaporized. Only the shadows remained as proof they had ever
existed. — William Stevenson, Intrepid’s Last Case

Julius and Ethel Rosenburg were executed for their part in arming
another nation with American technology.

But while the situation is grave, it is not hopeless. This account of
our beginnings comes from Isaac Potts, Gen. George Washington’s
temporary landlord at Valley Forge, where the scattered American army
lay huddled in the dead of winter:

In 1777 while the American army lay at Valley Forge, a good old
Quaker by the name of Potts had occasion to pass through a thick woods
near headquarters. As he traversed the dark brown forest, he heard, at a
distance before him, a voice which as he advanced became more fervid and

Approaching with slowness and circumspection, whom should he behold
in a dark bower, apparently formed for the purpose, but the
Commander-in-Chief of the armies of the United Colonies on his knees in
the act of devotion to the Ruler of the Universe!

At the moment when Friend Potts, concealed by the trees, came up,
Washington was interceding for his beloved country. With tones of
gratitude that labored for adequate expression he adored that exuberant
goodness which, from the depth of obscurity, had exalted him to the head
of a great nation, and that nation fighting at fearful odds for all the
world holds dear. …

Soon as the General had finished his devotions and had retired,
Friend Potts returned to his house, and threw himself into a chair by
the side of his wife. “Heigh! Isaac!” she said with tenderness, “thee
seems agitated; what’s the matter?”

“Indeed, my dear,” quoth he, “if I appear agitated ’tis no more than
what I am. I have seen this day what I shall never forget. Till now I
have thought that a Christian and a soldier were characters
incompatible; but if George Washington be not a man of God, I am
mistaken, and still more shall I be disappointed if God does not through
him perform some great thing for this country.” (From America’s God and
Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, edited by William J. Federer, 1994,
Fame Publishing, Coppel Texas.)

Long before America existed, another king learned what America’s
rulers have yet to comprehend. At the end of his God-imposed sabbatical,
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, then the most powerful nation on earth,
had this to say:

And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up my eyes to
heaven, and my understanding returned to me, and I blessed the most
High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose
dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom [is] from
generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth [are]
reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of
heaven, and [among] the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his
hand, or say to him, What doest thou? At the same time my reason
returned to me; and for the glory of my kingdom, my honour and
brightness returned to me; and my counsellors and my lords sought to me;
and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added to
me. Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven,
all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk
in pride he is able to abase. — Daniel 4:34-37
