“Pawns In The Game,” 1958-- the author, William Guy Carr, R.D. Commander R.C.N. (R) Ret’D -- born: June 2, 1895, died: October 2, 1959. Carr signed the Introduction to this book October 13, 1958; in Clearwater, Fla. Carr had written seven books previously. Commander Carr had a distinguished naval career. During World War One he served as Navigating Officer of H.M. Submarines. In World War Two he was Naval Control Officer for the St. Lawrence; then Staff Officer Operations at Shelbourne, N.S.; then Senior Officer at Goose Bay, Labrador. As an Officer on the staff of Commodore Redinald Brock he organized the 7th Victory Loan for the Royal Canadian Navel Training Division.

Quoting — Commander Carr was determined to inform as many people as possible regarding the Evil Forces which adversely affect all our lives, and the lives of our children. His book is an eye opener to parents, clergymen, teachers, students, statesmen, politicians, and labor leaders. ---

The forward

“William Guy Carr takes you to the beginning, and reveals how financiers and their trade tools have fomented and will continue to foment national and international crises. What is going on in America (in 1958) didn’t “just happen” it was planned, nurtured and carried out by those who will benefit from her demise.”

(Amen. The people who want to see the demise of America are gaining ground - November 16, 2012 - see how very close we are today?!!!!

Carr did his home work; he mentioned Cain, but he did not know in detail about Cain and Satan’s covenant, the oath and the secret order. And about Lamech, and Nimrod making covenant with Satan and the scriptures in the Book of Mormon about the secret combinations; and how in the last days the workers of Lucifer would be striving so very hard to bring about Satan’s plan.)

The International Conspiracy Introduction

“If what I reveal surprises and shocks the reader, please don’t develop an inferior complex because I am frank to admit that although I have worked since 1911, trying to find out why the Human Race can’t live in peace and enjoy the bounties and blessings God provides for our use and benefit in such abundance. It was 1950 before I penetrated the secret that the wars and revolutions which scourge our lives, and the chaotic conditions that prevail, are nothing more or less than the effects of the continuing Luciferian conspiracy. It started in that part of the universe we call heaven when Lucifer challenged the Right of God to exercise supreme authority.

From [Genesis 3: IV] Caption Rebellion of Satan---Man’s agency, temptation and fall.

V. 1) “And I, the Lord God, spake unto Moses, saying, That Satan whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning; V. 2) And he came before me, saying, Behold I, send me, I will be thy Son, and I will redeem mankind, and that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor.

V. 3) But behold, my beloved Son, which was my beloved and chosen from the beginning, said unto me: Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever.

V. 4) Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him; and also that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of mine Only Begotten, I caused that he should be cast down; and he became Satan.

V. 5) Yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive, and blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice.

It has been said “”When Satan does any work among the children of men, he does it through human agency.”

Carr - Until I realized that our struggle is not with flesh and blood, but with the spiritual forces of darkness who control all those in high places on the earth (Eph. 6:12). The pieces of evidence gathered all over this world just didn’t fit together and make sense. (I am not ashamed to admit that the “Bible” provided the “Key” which enabled me to obtain an answer to the question quoted above. (Stated here:)

“Trying to find out why the human race can’t live in peace and enjoy the bounties and blessings God provides for our use and benefit in such abundance?”)

In 1784 “An Act of God” placed the Bavarian government in possession of evidence which proved the existence of the continuing Luciferian Conspiracy. Adam Weishaupt, a jesuit-trained professor of canon law defected from Christianity, and embraced the Luciferian ideology while teaching in Ingoldstadt University. In 1770 the money lenders (who had recently organized the House of Rothschild) retained him to revise and modernize the age-old ‘protocols’ designed to give the Synagogue of Satan world domination so they can impose the Luciferian ideology upon the remains of the Human Race, after the final social cataclysm, by use of satanic despotism. Weishaupt completed the task May 1, 1776.

The plan required the destruction of “All” existing governments and religions. This objective was to be reached by dividing the masses, (this has happened in the last 4 years in America) whom he termed Goyim (meaning human cattle) into opposing camps in ever increasing numbers on political, racial, social, economic, (religion) and other issues. The opposing sides were then to be armed and an “incident” provided which would cause them to fight (Civil wars) and weaken themselves as they destroyed National Governments and Religious Institutions.

In 1776 Weishaupt organized the Illuminati to put the plot into execution. The word Illuminati is derived from Lucifer, and means ‘holders of the light’ Using the lie that his objective was to bring about a one-world government to enable men with proven mental ability to govern the world, he recruited about two thousand followers. These included the most intelligent men in the field of Arts and Letters; Education, the sciences, finance and industry. He then established Lodges of the Grand Orient to be their secret headquarters.

Weishaut’s revised plan required his Illuminati to do the following things to help accomplish their purpose; (Because of the length I shall not write the 4 things listed for them to do.) All people who think you are in favor of a one-world government please pay attention to what I share next.

A German author named Zwack put Weihaupt’s revised version of the age-old conspiracy into book form and named it “Einige Original-Scripten.” In 1784 a copy of this document was sent to the Illuminists Weishaupt had delegated to foment the French Revolution. The courier was struck dead by lightening as he rode through Ratisbon on his way from Frankfurt to Paris. The Police found the subversive documents on his body and turned them over to the proper authorities.

After careful study of the plot the Bavarian Government ordered the police to raid Weihaup’s newly organized lodges of the Grand Orient and the homes of some of the most influential associates, including the castle of Baron Bassusin-Sandersdorf. Additional evidence thus obtained convinced the authorities the documents were a genuine copy of a conspiracy by which the synagogue of Satan, who controlled the Illuminati AT THE TOP, planned to use wars and revolutions to bring about the establishment of one kind or another of a One World Government, the powers of which they intended to USURP as soon as it was established.

After reading this are you (one-worlders) still in favor of a one world government?

I restate what is written above by Carr, because what he said describes what has taken place in other countries has taking place in America these last four years. Unless Christians wake up and act, this shall continue until the synagogue of Satan has control of the one world government, “The plan required the destruction of all existing governments and religions. The objective is to be reached by dividing the masses into opposing camps political, racial, social, (religion) economic, and other issues”

Before George Sores, an Illuminist, came to America to destroy our economy he has destroyed the economy in countries overseas.

Because of my past and assurance from Holy Spirit, I KNOW what Carr has written in his book is true.—Because of our knowledge of this, and our prayers, with help of Holy Spirit we can stop those who are carrying forth Satan’s plan. Now that the picture is clear and we know what is going on we can pray effectively. So very many Christians are deceived; they are deceived because they do not embrace the scriptures; they follow the commandments of man instead. All that is happening today is fulfilling prophecy, Jesus said in the last days the deception would be so great that if possible the very elect would be deceived, this is recorded in [Matthew 24:]

In the early presidency of Obama, I saw a picture of him holding a book; the title of the book was readable ‘THE DEMISE OF AMERICA.’ I shared on an e-mail about Michelle Obama on the campaign trail in 2008. I had taken this from a web site. Michelle was quoting things that Barack had said, “The world as it is and the world as it should be,” Obama said, ‘the world as it is just wont do, and all of us driven that the world as it is just wont do have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”

Obama was quoting from chapter 2 of the book “Rules for Radicals” by the late Saul Alinsky --- 1971; this book is the prayer book for some people in our present administration and the people whom Obama appointed.

Alinsky began his book with a tribute to Lucifer: “From all our legends, mythology, and history the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did so effectively that he, (Lucifer) won his own kingdom.”

I shared the e-mail, May 11, 2009 --- ‘The world as it is and the world as it should be’; I ended with, “Since electing Barack Obama as President of the United States, we look to what has been implemented to make the world as it should be, according to Saul Alinsky and his followers.”

Carr -- As far as I am concerned study of the Luciferian conspiracy, in the light of The Holy Scriptures, has convinced me that the binding of Satan and the containment of Satanic forces upon this earth can be brought about more speedily if the WHOLE TRUTH concerning the Luciferian Conspiracy (secret combinations) is made known as quickly as possible to ALL the people of ALL REMAINING NATIONS.

The Old Testament is simply the history of how Satan became prince of this world, and caused our first parents to defect from God. It relates how the Synagogue of Satan was established on this earth; it tells how it has worked since to prevent God’s Plan for the rule of the universe being established on this earth. & nbsp;

Christ came to earth when the conspiracy reached the stage that, to use His own words, Satan controlled all the high places. Christ exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2: 9; 3: 9) he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the devil (Lucifer), whom he castigated as father of lies (John 8: 44) and the prince of deceit (2 Cor. 11: 14). He was specific in his statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev.2: 9; 3:9). He identified the Money- Changers (Bankers) the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of his day. What so many people forget is the fact that Christ came on earth to release us from the bonds of Satan with which we were being bound tighter and tighter as the years rolled by.
What Carr states next is very interesting; ‘Christ gave us the solution to our -- problem when he told us we must go forth and teach the truth, regarding this conspiracy (John 8: 31: 59, to all people of all nations. (Please I ask all to read the scriptures which Carr has listed; read carefully these verses in John 8: 31-50; perhaps Carr is right, when we teach the truth regarding this conspiracy we shall no longer be in the bonds of Satan.) ‘He, Jesus promised that if we did this, knowledge of the truth would set us free [Matt. 28: 19]. The Luciferian Conspiracy has developed (1958) until it is in semi-final stage (Mat. 24: 15; 34), simply because we have failed to put the mandate Christ gave us into effect.’
From the last page of Carr’s book:

Almighty God has provided the human race with all we need to live. He has provided for our comforts and reasonable pleasures. It is our duty to see that all members of the human race share equally in the bounties and blessings provided by almighty God. There should never be a time when the granaries of the western world are busting at the seams, while the people in the Far East are dying by the millions from starvation. We must share freely and generously with others what we have above our requirements (needs), for it is certain we cannot take anything with us when we die.”

Carr also made this statement: “All one-worlders, (those who promote and strive for a one-world government) who are serving in the Synagogue of Satan, are not aware they are doing so.”

From the book, ‘In the Midst of Eternity’ by the late Donald Savage, 1970

“Men and women attracted by the truth and love of God will walk in His paths, day by day changing their lives and personality to become like Christ, until one day in utter joy they knell at His feet in worship. But men and women more enticed by wickedness, when finally faced with the unavoidable knowledge burning within them of what they are and how their influence has hurt the cause of truth, will dissolve into “weeping and wailing, and gnashing of teeth” as they begin to grasp the horror of their alliance with Satan.”

P.S. “Pawns In The Game” is out of print; I ordered one from Amazon.

Remember folks Commander Carr searched from 1911 until 1950 and found the answer to: Why the human race can’t live in peace and enjoy the bounties and blessing God provides for our use and benefit in such abundance? IT IS BECAUSE OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN. Carr came to this conclusion after reading the following scripture:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12.)

Hobby Lobby

F.Y.I Hobby Lobby


Micah 6:8..."to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine
business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on
Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start
at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company
since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in fines.

Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true. The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.

My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American business should have to make. The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not except Christian organizations including the Catholic church.

Since you will not see this covered in any of the liberal media, pass this on to all your contacts.

David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Housing in Lee Summit

From: Ben David

Housing in Lee Summit, or very close to Lee Summit

She is looking for a house, townhouse, condo, or apartment that has at least 2 bedrooms (more would be better), one bath; that allows cats and dogs. She is a very neat and clean person who has her own rug doctor and she uses it often.

She needs the residence to be close to, or in Lee Summit as that is where her kids go to school. She has a good job with the government, but can only afford around $500-550 a month without any of the utilities paid. She could possibly go higher if some of the utilities were paid.

Thanks for the help, she is a really good person who needs a little help.

A Big Thank You and an Update

Dear Saints,

About a year ago, I sent an e-mail announcing the launch of Show Me 4 Life—a group working to establish a Missouri Abortion Memorial. There have been 600,000 abortions in Missouri since 1973. We are collecting one diaper/safety pin to represent each of those victims. This memorial and visual representation will be donated as a resource for Missouri Right to Life.

Since the launch, we have been hard at work and the Saints have been quite generous! We currently have over 337,000 pins (56%) of our goal. Of that number, over 84,000 pins came from the Saints. Thank you, Saints, for providing more than 25% of our current collection!

During this past year, the collection has made four trips to the Missouri Capitol Building, been displayed at multiple pro-life banquets organized by Missouri Right to Life and 40 Days for Life, has been shown in whole or in part at five different fairs and conventions, displayed at political rallies, and has been in several churches—including two Catholic parishes! If you would like to have the collection displayed in your church, school, or community, we would be happy to provide it.

My mom and I have started a blog at Blessings to the Home. All commissions earned on purchases made at that site through Lilla Rose and the affiliate links will support Show Me 4 Life (Missouri's Abortion Memorial) until the project’s completion. Shop for baking goods, kitchen utensils, herbs, spices, books, stationery, clothing, home decor, and hair accessories while supporting a great pro-life cause!

For those who are able, donations of pins or money would be greatly appreciated. We have determined that $1,900 would be sufficient for purchasing the remaining pins. No contribution is too small! Even a few diaper/safety pins mailed in an envelope will be greatly appreciated.

Donations of pins or money may be mailed to:

Show Me 4 Life
P.O. Box 881
Oak Grove, MO 64075

Checks should be made payable to Show Me 4 Life.

Please share this information with your family, friends, and contacts in the pro-life community. Also, “Like” Show Me 4 Life on Facebook and “Follow” us on Twitter.

Thank you again for your support!

In Christ,
